"I'm sorry if if we could get a latte from win Christus talking those that's my Internet I don't know what's happening. With it, we're going to continue talking about basketball. But. I don't happening. Whatever Hopefully. It sounds good. I'll listen to later. The So the NBA actually did used to kind of do the same setup that the WNBA has. And then careens Lakers lost one year and the NBA was like ooh. We're. GonNa Change Because they hurry Kareem's big money together so they want Jose. So I don't do it now. I would vote for this as well. I. Think all your points through I just want a little bit more just a little bit more playoffs, but we can have what forgot the time. At the least Gimme a second round series I get if you want make the first round like a wildcard but I I would vote for that ballot initiative. Okay. The next one. Christie cat. Would you vote to expand the WNBA by two teams? That's Like now, like today today or is this like you? Terrific? Today. where? I like it where it is right now. Okay and that's not to say. You know less than five years expanded to two more games. I. Think there's there's so much more leverage now marketing wise, I think you know the the is that were on the League, the summer and the bubble I. Think I think that was great for for marketing players and the League. Went to vote at on my power of women shirt for the WNBA and I had a gentleman come up to me and say, Hey, you know what? I'm not a huge basketball fan but I love what the NBA Wmba stand for and you know I just think that you know the The visual. Support. That was gained this summer by the League. I think was was very necessary but I think if you try to jump the gun and add two teams right now, it might not be a good time for that. I just think that you know the NBA didn't add every. You know very often either when they added a teams like Charlotte Toronto and all these things I get that but they didn't do it quickly. They didn't do it. You know rashly they you have to think things through and I think most definitely there's enough. Talent across the. The World I, was gonNA say across the United States but across the world to fill another two teams WNBA no doubt about that but I just think right now I think there's leverage to be gained, and then once you have that that gain leverage. Then add two more teams in and then after you gain more leverage that then continue to. Know for a now. I agree. So you think though right now I, I, agree with that for right now now are lat long. As connection is continuing to be unstable keep getting a message saying my internet is unstable Would you vote? To increase the WNBA roster size from twelve to fifty. So. Each team gets fifteen players. Wow. I would like that I think right now and I think with the new CBA you know where the? The finances were increase in a lot of extras where were given to two each team. I think that would be kind of more of a viable possibility than gained than adding two more teams and as we said, you know there's definitely the talent base. You know you could definitely fit more players on. Your team in terms of their skill sets and what they're able to bring as pros. I would say, yes to that one. I agree I think I'd say sound and that gets us to a point where we're having more talent in the league but we're not kind of. Bringing in new teams when I think it's a bit too early to bitterly I. Agree With You Okay. There's all my my ballot initiative is have any you'd like to propose. Oh Man. I think I'm good. He did a great job with that. Gave that was fun. That was about I thought about today. I. Was like Oh. That's a good. That'll be. So I think I. Think we got we have our president and vice president or best. Once you punch WNBA we have. Our Senate. Candidates. which. and then we have our ballot initiative. So we're going to give a playoff series in. The first and second rounds and we're GONNA have more roster spots so we made real change.

No, social media isn't biased against conservatives

"Yesterday the CEO's of Google facebook and twitter testify before the Senate and a hearing that was supposed to be about a fundamentally important Internet law called section two thirty. It's about liability protection for tech companies. Instead, the hearing ended up being about how much power big tech companies hold and how they wheeled it. Republicans accused social media platforms of Anti Conservative bias Democrats said, platforms aren't doing enough to curb the spread of disinformation. It went about like this Mr Gordon. Who the hell elected you and put you in charge of what the media are allowed to report and what the American people are allowed to hear issue is not that the company's before today are taking too many posts. Now issue is that the leaving too many dangerous post up. That was senators, Ted Cruz, and Ed. Markey and we now have none other than marketplace tax molly would here to talk about this and I asked her. Is it true that tech platforms have an anti conservative bias? There is no evidence to show that platforms have an anti conservative bias, and in fact, there is research as of this very week that says that facebook actually. Promotes right wing content to the point that it is its own sort of right wing echo chamber, and in fact, Kevin Roose at the new. York Times set up basically an automated system that every single day posts the top performing links on US facebook pages in the last twenty, four hours and every single day. The vast majority in fact are from right wing new sources. It does though stem from argument that I've heard not just from the right. But also from the left that these companies do wield a lot of power, they can take whatever they want down and that people want to know why you know when it happens that they should be more transparent with their their moderation policies and processes. How much common ground is there on that I mean, that is absolutely true. These companies should be more transparent about how their processes work and unfortunately because they have not been over and over and over it's basically open the door to the kind of frankly posturing and performance that you see every time these two use appear before Congress and it's only gotten worse I think that that would be. In some ways, a fairly easy fix. These are our rules they are enforced consistently and with regularity, and that would end a lot of these arguments but unfortunately, the platform so far have not done that now in the actual last days before a presidential election, they're kind of scrambling in front of all of us real time to figure out solutions and it's obviously not working. No one's happy with it. One of the other issues we heard about brought up mostly by Democrats was about disinformation specifically about how much responsibility tech platforms have to take it down. What did we learn once again, we didn't learn much from. All of the shouting but I think what we're learning is that increasingly this conversation which a lot of people believe is about section two thirty and this liability shield of the tech platforms have related to what their users post is not actually what this is about. It's about disinformation and so far we've seen proposals from the GOP to alter the way that section two thirty works that would arguably punish platforms for not allowing disinformation to spread. and. Then on the other side of the equation, you have certainly Democrats but also researchers, academics, journalists saying these companies have allowed disinformation to spread to a dangerous degree and they need to do more to stop it on both the advertising side and the content side. Here's the thing that is a little bit tricky to discuss a lot of the time when conservatives in Congress say that conservative content is being censored. The content that they're referring to is disinformation. They give you know frequently the example of the commentators diamond silk who have had their content taken down because it promoted misinformation around the corona virus as one example, and so we find ourselves in this tricky position where increasingly there are there people in the GOP who are embracing? Cunanan, in back just this week, Stephen Miller the White House political adviser reportedly told journalists that Abidin administration would enable widespread sex trafficking of children that is a Q. and non talking point is conspiracy theory that has spread on the Internet and so because we're in this moment where we're right before the election where disinformation has played a huge role in the two thousand sixteen election and in elections since it is really impossible to separate the politics. From the conversation around speech particularly when so many of these talking points are impact themselves misinformation or did. Researchers. Just re re released evidence that president trump himself is the single largest source of misinformation around covid nineteen in the coronavirus, and that makes us a tricky conversation to have because it feels partisan. But if you agree that truth is truth and certain things are true in certain things aren't then it is sort of a nation that has to be had.

As Tanzania Votes, Many See Democracy Itself on the Ballot

"Tons Anita went to the polls yesterday to vote in an election overshadowed by opposition complaints of irregularities such as ballot box, stuffing President John Maga. Fully who is accused of stifling democracy seeks a second term in office alongside fourteen other candidates talk to Dan. Padgett is electoral politics at the university. Of Aberdeen, he specializes in political communication through mass rallies and populist and nationalist ideologies in Tanzania and joins me on the line. Now Don Tanzania's long been thought of in the West is a a haven of stability within east Africa but I mean this isn't necessarily the case and I. I wonder if you could sketch out the political dynamic there, the ruling party's been in power since nineteen sixty one. Yes that's right. It's is the longest ruling party in sub. Saharan Africa. The political dynamic in Tanzania has been one of the ruling Kanzi, CCM's decline over the last fifteen years. Reaching a low point in two thousand fifteen where it where the margin of victory was. The fittest is ever been. Since then President Michel, Foodie, it came to kyle and that's election has led Tanzania. Very shot an increasingly extreme offered Harry. Intern. And we weren't sure how just how? Radical that authoritarian agenda would be and the election this we're just getting results from now suggests that it is as bad as any of us feared as so the opposition allegations of vote rigging, etc do stand up. Well. So. Of course, normally I would turn to international election observers. Attorney to arbitrate these claims to decide which to give credence in which not to give credence. Unfortunately, we can't almost no international election observers. Were invited and those that were invited were. Invited at our so Given that and given the advantage of the opportunity that this creates the ruling party the elections it's hard not to give at least prima facie credence to these opposition claims especially given the the wide range of anecdote to. Video and photographic evidence that I've seen an which which I've been collecting these last twenty four hours, and of course, zipping a social media crackdown various restrictions on the press. Has Been, a crackdown all over and and for the last five years. So in many ways, the the rigging receipt which we've been seeing apparently seeing of the next twenty four hours. Is. Really just the icing on the authoritarian cake. There's extreme. Media Censorship rallies have been banned and consider route the rally. The most important means of communication tends to emotional time about seventy percent of people attend local meetings on a regular basis and attend election campaign rallies they were they were abandoned twenty sixteen and indeed the opposition at large have. Hottest. Struggle underneath. Almost constance. Of States and extra state harassment in includes trumped up court cases but also extrajudicial. So extra state attacks. Unknown assailants that have arrested some abductors killed. And in fact, one of the main challenges has recently returned to the country after recovering from gunshot wounds. That's right. So tenderly series is. Presidential. Candidate is the largest opposition party in Tanzania. and. So that's Experience of being of surviving attempted assassination attempt has has given. US already in very impressive political figure a sort of a sparkle. Some people referred to him as a living miracle. But of course, we don't know the results. Yes. But we all seeing violence particularly in Zanzibar. Zanzibar the autonomous. ARCHEPELAGO's Zanzibar, which is a federally devote area of 'em. Into UK. Has has often seen electoral violence. We saw it in ninety five and two, thousand and thirteen, thousand, five and twenty fifteen and actions by varying degrees. So in in some ways, this is a return to form It's not. The recurrence of violence is is. Seems to be because the opposition has probably one in sensabaugh almost every time. But they've never officially one out one means or another has always been used to not in the that's the that's the the scholarly consensus on. Politics what's different? This time I think is that there's violence on the mainland as well. So this is no longer an issue of contained physical violence in Zanzibar. There have been a series of incidents including. What appears to be an attempt to a to attack the chairman of the leading opposition party on the eve of the elections. So that's one difference the other is considered. No money there is. A. Sporadic protests violence and in return state brutality, police army heavy-handedness in putting down those protests that the protests have often been. Constrained and sporadic because they have not been condoned led. By, by the leaders of the opposition there, there are indications that this could be different this time one of the reasons for that is. The, the rhetoric is different. The leader of the opposition in Zanzibar say amount has been say had has been saying that in the past he's held his supporters back. He's been of restraint, and at this time he he won't urge restraint to newly sue has said that he will. Bring people out onto the streets and consider the state of the opposition behind because it seems like this might be the last stand in a sense that vikings they can make, and so they they don't have that say incentive to hold back this time and say the keep up how to drive the next time. Just finally before we go, do you think that this is part of something that we're seeing across parts of Africa there is a younger demographic. They were all born after independence that not prepared to accept authoritarian rule the just coming to the age where they are protesting we're seeing it in Nigeria within saws and in various other places could this be the the Africans spring. My sense is if there is African spring to come, it will come off and an Wiki will extend. Mexico an authoritarian winter. The trend on that strikes me is that a number of leaders are emerging in an intense Aena in Zambia. In other parts of the consonant, which bear a striking resemblance to this sort of authoritarian. Developmental. Nationalists of is so The there's a young population I are angry. But in fact, I think the trend seems to go the other way. And results. When can we expect those? So the first also are already dripping in and they show. That a series of opposition strongholds, there's places that you would never expect or or at least likely. To expect to go to a to the ruling party are being won by then by margins of three to one, which suggests that the the the rigging. Being worried about maybe taking place typically a Tanzanian election result takes three or four days that was related end and announced especially with the presidential elections but. So far. This is actually has been crisis already.

Trump's achievements in the Middle East

"Donald. Trump's foreign policy is all too often met with derision or simply chairmanship? Isn't it? The critics Maki's diplomacy and they pan the choice of son-in-law Jared Kushner as a Middle East envoy. However just dies away from the US presidential election. Trump has had a few certifiable victories to put in his closing advertising pitch to the American people. I'm of course referring to the peace deals between Israel and Bahrain the United Arab Emirates and Sudan these have been brokered by the trump administration well to tell us more about the significance of these Abraham. Cords. For the Prophet of Jews, Christians and Muslims alike. Let's tune to Greg. Sheridan, he's foreign editor of the Australian Gregg welcome back to the show. Glad to be with your. Greg, your assessment of trump foreign policy generally. Well I think. The media has done generally around the world agree poor job on analyzing trump because themselves have become. So polarized there the all against trump or a small minority of the mural for trump whereas I trump has had some wins and some losses. stylistically he's been very unorthodox and at times on counterproductive but you can look back inside that what trump has been a bath is being creating leverage. The United States in K. relationships is put tariffs on China, and that gives him something to negotiate with Jonah He's put sanctions on Iran that. Gives him something that Iran wants to get rid of an in every relationship? He's got leverage for the United States. Now I think he's done a lot of specific things that have actually been quite good. You can certainly criticize the way he talks about alliances, but it these actions rather than his words quite a lot of the things he's done have been very successful especially in Asia and the Middle East is increased the US military budget more than any other president and American allies. Niger very happy about that the allies in Asia. Have Been Critical of China and most inclined to stand up against Jonah namely Japan India Vietnam Singapore Australia a couple of Damon our full hours course I very good relationship with trump role. Bilaterally, a lot of his relationships been very successful India and Australia. His administration has built the quotes the quadrilateral security dialogue. He has recognized the nature of the Chinese threat to the international system and do American interests better than any other president. Andy's moved the debate along at the same time. There's been a lot of chaos in his administration, the White folks terrible but I think he's had some real wins and I think he's done very well in the Middle East. Okay. We're talking about the Middle East You have argued in the astride newspapers I amount to a major step forward in the pace there why these Arab states altering their relations with Israel is it because of the mutual fee of Iran or is it because the US has leaned on the Motley? Well it's by the size I think Tom plus some other factors as well, but you've just got to pause. And model at the size of trump's achievement in and. To even out of these words, probably you know get you sort of condemned by all international relax plots society at. A. O. Over knocks the of international relations would would excommunicate you for saying it. But you know Israel has five peace treaties with Arab nations. Three of them have come under Donald Trump. He has said we back Israel one hundred percent is move the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem tremendous symbolic sign of his commitment to Israel. But he has said we all sat back the security of the Gulf Arab states and are opposed to Iran and we kind to put sanctions on it. We think the nuclear deal when far enough now, the Gulf Arab states all agree with trump about Iran. But also items cells to some extent lost interest in the Palestinian cause. They're certainly not going to allow Palestinian view of Israel to be a roadblock. Now, they say Israel is a very good security Patna and they are encouraged by the US administration to might place with Israel if you just change in your ABC's ready national with me Tom Switzer my guest is Greg Sheridan foreign editor of the Australian. Now Greg you've been one of Australia's leading defenders of Middle East policy for decades. Trump came to power on an America I strategic. He's goal a piece to be to reduce significantly America's military role in the Middle East. We just talked about this grand aimed Iranian coalition that can contain tyron wants the Americans have gone given that America is now energy independent moralists isn't this retrenchment from the middle. East if trump is reelected, isn't that a good thing? Well. I think. It's makes Grill Tom. I think it is probably a good thing. The thing tonight is about trump is that on the whole he has implemented a lot of his foreign policy promises. If you put trump's record on the Middle East, all together it's pretty impressive. The US defeated Isis and he's decided that the Iranian. Nuclear deal is a very bad deal. I agree with him about that because it recognizes the legitimacy of Iran's nuclear industry allows enrichment of uranium a whole lot of other things and then allows in a very short period of time I'm sales to rent said trump said that's completely unacceptable. He wants a new and much better they'll, and in the meantime he's applying sanctions to Iran. has significantly diminished Iran's ability to cause mayhem in the region but that brings me to the point about what happens if Joe Biden is elected knicks wiggle the polls. Many of the pundits the betty markets point to a Democratic victory next week if a bottom administration comes to POW, Greg dozen that increase the chances of everything you've just been saying being wound back, I? Mean wouldn't Baden for example. Revert to the Obama nuclear deal with Iran. Well Eight. That's what he says he'll do allow. Kind of the problem. So the final point from the past there is that trump is not engaged in any new military adventures whereas even Bama engaged in the regime change in Libya which had absolutely eleven offers consequences now, Baden. It's very unclear. What kind of Administration Baden will provide his advisors at the moment seemed to be dominated by retreads from the second, I. Bob. Administration Susan Rice and Ben Rides. But then his party has moved along why for an elect- with Anastazia. Cortes and Bernie Sanders and the influence of the crew he says he's going to make climate change the center of all of his foreign policy I think. He may repeat a mistake of trump's, which is simply to try to undo everything his predecessor is done whereas trump has left Baden assuming button does win trump was left on a lot of leverage tramples. Authorized the elimination of the commander of the Iranian could force SOMAINI and. The, Iranians, like everyone else are scared of trump and they're. Constrained by not knowing what he's going to do even though he hasn't done any major military intervention, I don't think I've boughten will WANNA put more troops back into the Middle East or anything like that. The story of the last ten or twelve years really has been Americans will will say trying to get out of the Middle East and finding it very, very difficult to do so but Baden would be. Tremendously mistaken if he didn't try to capitalize on the successes, trump might I certainly don't think he's GonNa WanNa Talk Sudan or by Ryan will will the United Arab Emirates? Out of normalization with Israel, but will is administration base smart enough to keep it going with other Gulf states in trump was saying the other day that he thinks Saudi. Arabia can might place. With Israel, we'll that would been shattering. That would be I don't tectonic shift in the Middle East and Baden if he's smart or his administration as. Will keep going down that road and then God bless them. They can get all the accolades for forever success they won't themselves. But if they get back to the Paragon the John Kerry paradigm, you've gotTa somehow miraculously solve the Palestinian problem before we can do anything else Well, I think it could be much less effective than trump.

US tech giants accused of 'monopoly power'

"Giant companies were grilled before a congressional hearing. Twitter's Jack Dorsey, Google, Sundar Pichai and Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg took questions on how to best police the Internet. The central question dealt with federal law, known as section 2, 30, protect social media companies from liability for their users post Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, appearing virtually urged against any drastic changes section 2 30 helped create the Internet. As we know it has helped new ideas get built and our company's to spread American values around the world, and we should maintain this advantage. But the Internet has also evolved, and I think that Congress should update the law to make sure that it's working. As intended. Dorsey, along with Zuckerberg and pitch, I were pressed to the to the company's policies for content, moderation. And, of course, the three CEOs were accused by some senators of abusing their power over political speech six days before the presidential election. One more heated exchanges came between Dorsey and Senator Ted Cruz. So you're testifying to this committee right now that Twitter when its silences people when its sensors people wanted blocks political speech that has no impact on elections, people people have choice of other communication channels. Not if they don't hear information. If you don't think you have the power to influence elections, why do you block anything? Well, we have policies that are focused on making sure that more voices from possible we see a lot of abuse and harassment, which ends up silencing people in something on leave from the front. Well at on this question. I just mentioned of content moderation. All three of the CEOs were pressed, especially by Republicans, accusing them of having an anti conservative bias. The CEO's also pushback on that They did, however, concede on the need for more transparency around some of their decisions on content moderation. It has been a busy

'Who the hell elected you?' Big tech CEOs grilled in US Senate hearing

"Tech company CEOs and guys very long beards and interest now, Fitz. They faced a lot of questions today in a hearing. I guess it was the Senate Commerce Committee If I'm not mistaken, But how did it go? And is there any news being made? Yeah. First of two appearances by the social texts, social media giant before Capitol Hill. This was the Commerce Committee ahead is Lindsey Graham's Judiciary Committee That's expected to be just after the election. But bottom line you know, Democrats and Republicans pretty much on the same page in terms of social media playing God with American democracy, choosing what posts get to stay up. Who's there? Come down and who gets blocked? Um, and during a presidential election. Ah, lot of alarm about that. Obviously, they seem to favor the more democratic side. So conservatives were particularly angry Ted Cruz really going at it with Jack Dorsey from Twitter. You know, Cruz saying who the hell elected you and put you in charge of what the media are allowed to report. What the American people are allowed to here and why persistent, behave behaving as a democratic super PAC, So he was pretty fight the Jack Gorski countered. You know, we're not doing that. This is why I opened this hearing with calls for more transparency, So there's pretty good back and forth. One interesting thing I should note is that Mark Zuckerberg, who had the all powerful Facebook initially had trouble connecting with the hearing. Really, somebody on this team or whatever. Overcame a technical difficulties and was able to jump in any appetite as faras stripping away the protections against them being held under slander laws, like newspapers and magazines have to adhere to radio stations any appetite for stripping that away from social media platforms and the leveling the playing field. Yeah, I think there really is. Ah, serious call for change. Obviously, everybody's focused with next Tuesday's election, and it won't happen before the election. But I think there's a lot of discomfort on both sides of the aisle. Really, with the power that these institutions the social media platforms have over our society that and and if they're able TTO basically regulate. Who's that gets to say What then There's a lot of concern about monopoly and whether you need to break them up and that sort of thing. So we'll see if a new Congress can maybe come together and do some kind of adjustments to their Regulation. But, you know, we'll see.

Who Gets To Vote In Florida?

"This is planet money from NPR. In two thousand at the age of seventeen. Angel. Sanchez gets his first real job. It's in the Law Library at the Soto Correctional Institution in southwest Florida where Angel is an inmate mark first day at work. I walk in and they told me this is your desk. and. Had A desk I've never in my life had a desk before that moment right away. Angel loves this place. There are no guards there's no fighting they even have their own coffee pot and it was a sense of liberation homeless for out of prison. In that moment, Angel had lived a hard life. The first time police put him in handcuffs. He was in the third grade in the principal's office by age fourteen, Angel Traded Sixty Bucks in his Super Nintendo for his first gun he ran away from home he joined a gang. And at Seventeen, he was sentenced to thirty years in prison for armed robbery and gang related shootings, and it's in his first year in prison that he gets that job in the library and as he begins to study the law there, he starts to feel something that he's never really felt before like maybe he has plans I liked it because it allowed me to challenge the system in a legal way I. always there was never a challenge. The police stopped me I can't do. Nothing about that. They slap me a candle nothing about that and the law gave me an avenue that says, no, you could challenge it. Angel starts working on a paralegal certificate and as he's studying, he starts to think wait this is dot as hard. As I thought, it would be learning the laws like how what lawyers charge so much. It doesn't take much to learn to do this and most of the forms are refilled. What is going on here I thought it was a scam. This esoteric thing that I thought only geniuses knew I could get it. Either genius or they're not and I said Madiba ever got how could I be a lawyer but then he thinks Oh wait with even let me be a lawyer with a felony conviction. He looks into it and the answer in Florida is probably not or at least it would be very hard I. He'd have to beg the governor for clemency, which is almost never granted and then angel learns he's also lost a bunch of other rights. Because of his felony learned that in Florida, you're voting rights you're right to sit on during your rights rump up public office for life. It's losing the right to vote that really stinks for Angel. He's like hold up I can't vote ever like, I'm seventeen years old I've never even had the right to vote, and now you're telling me that for the rest of my life I, just get no say as a citizen of this democracy. Which is true. Of course, not just for Angel. There are about one point, four, million people with felony convictions in Florida one in ten adults with a felony conviction more than one in five African Americans. They what? But that's something that will come from some other countries like my family they come from Venezuela and Cuba there you see the government trying to imprison people and then use the law to take away people's political power but not in the United States. Hello, and welcome to planet money I'm Karen Defend taking away the political power of one point four million people is. A big deal anywhere. But especially in Florida Florida is a state that can swing presidential elections like the one happening just next week and elections in Florida usually come down too much less than even a million People Hillary Clinton lost Florida in two thousand, sixteen by one hundred, twelve, thousand votes in two thousand George Bush won by just five, hundred and thirty seven. Today on the show Angel Sanchez sets out to get the right to vote back for himself and for the one point, four million others like him in Florida. Which works? Until the fight stopped being about voting rights and started to become about money.

Tech CEOs To Testify Before Senate Panel On Platforms' Legal Shield

"Americans you, have six days left to cast their votes in this most unusual presidential election never before has an election been. So influenced by social media back in May twitter added labels to tweets at the company felt were potentially misleading and that included tweets by President, trump facebook has now banned all new political ads between now and the election though ads that have already been published are still visible, Google. Will stop all political ads from running after the polls close election day that's something facebook has pledged to do as well. So now the CEO's of twitter facebook and Google are all being made to defend those policies they're set to testify today before the Senate Commerce Committee senators are weighing whether to reconsider the legal shield that has long protected. The TECH INDUSTRY NPR's Allen is here to explain hey bobby. Good Morning. Rachel. Let's just start off with the timing of all this. Why why is this happening now? So it's happening now because the calls as you mentioned have been coming for some time from trump and from even from Democrats in Congress to do something about this law section to thirty. Now. Like you said at the top twitter for the first time, placed a label on one of trump's tweets that one. He made a false claim about mail in voting, and this is really irritated trump and it really amped his crusade to have the platforms reigned in Here's the president after twitter flag that tweet they've had unchecked power to censor, restrict, edit shape hide alter virtually any form of communication between private citizens. So trump. There was signing an executive order aimed at a law that protects the tech industry like I said, it's known as section two thirty, and that is why Senate Republicans have today called this hearing. Okay. So this is the legal shield section to thirty. Explain what this law does. Yes. So it was passed in the mid nineties during the early days of the Internet if you can recall them. Back. Yeah back then facebook and twitter we're not yet around but. Names like compuserve and prodigy were. Services people talked a lot about and back then and now the law gave tech platforms. He's shield that made their future growth possible and in basically what it says Rachel is that they cannot be sued for what posted to their sites. But now this law is in peril because for once Democrats Republicans can actually agree on something and it's that this law is no good and it's got to go I imagine they. They may come to the same conclusion but different ways, right? I mean do Democrats and Republicans agree on why section thirty so bad. So the short answer is no a Democrats, say it has let facebook. And twitter for years have a hands off approach to misinformation and hate speech Republicans on the other hand say, Hey, these platforms are hiding behind this law to suppress conservative views. Even facebook's Mark Zuckerberg says, this law should be updated but he and many other tech leaders say repealing it completely would be a disaster because that would open the floodgates to endless lawsuits and Rachel, and we're not just talking about facebook here. I mean we CA-. Pedia yelp read it and so many other corners of the Internet that relies. So heavily on this law could be subject to lots and lots of lawsuits if this law is repealed. So, really this is about are these just platforms or do they have some kind editorial influence on the content? The they allow on their platforms as part of this Republicans today are expected to air grievances about what they perceive as a liberal bias on on these platforms right? What does the data say about that, right? So Republicans point to twitter's decision to remove links on its platform of recently the New York Post story about Hunter Biden that had some very questionable sourcing facebook also reduced the the spread of. That story. So there are lots of anecdotal one offs like this, and then there's the data as you mentioned, which presents a much different story and the data says that conservative us and conservative stories actually are amplified on facebook at some of the most engaged with content and the facebook algorithm rewards engagement. So it's actually the opposite of what the some conservatives are saying that facebook and twitter are helping conservative us and helping conservative store stories reach bigger audiences than they ever could have imagined before the social networks.

Why Buchanan County, Virginia’s election results are important

Why Buchanan County, Virginia’s election results are important

"Buchanan County gave President trump his biggest margin of victory in the two thousand sixteen presidential election nearly eighty percent voted for him compared to just over eighteen percent for Hillary Clinton. President trump has done little to expand his political base since then and to secure victory this time around, he'll need to maintain his base in working class comedies like the Canon. So how is support in Buchanan holding up this time around and what can you tell us about trump's base across the country? We turn now to our senior editor Bob Davis Hi Bob thanks for being here. Sure. Thanks for inviting me. So, tell us a little bit more about the canons economy which has relied heavily on coal mining has that changed during the pandemic what's going on there now? Will you know you voted Cannon County and you can read about the pandemic and people will tell you how it's affected them. But you don't honestly see it. It is a place where few people wear masks where people are back in their offices not in general not observing social distancing and it is a place where the pandemic has moved through the county just as it has in other places. So what? You see for the pandemic is, for instance, the high school which was went virtual in the spring they tried a mixture of in-person and virtual mostly in person for the full the issue there one reason an additional reason there to go in person compared to other places is you know it's it's a place that's full of mountains and valleys, and the the Internet reception's not very good in a lot of places so. That would argue to have kids come back and go to school in person. Well, when I was there, it happened that three kids tested positive and they wound up going off virtual. School. Which of course had the usual effect on parents who have to take care of the kids so I mean there's that and then the economy. The economy's slowing. As again as you would see around the country, the coal mines shut or slowed. During the spring, but they're back shopping is down retail sales are down and it's a place where the unemployment rate you know went up to eleven percent. It's now the most recent is around nine percent. So even a place that's used to having a weak economy. In What is clearly recession? President trump is still expected to win the county in this election, but a lot has changed for many of his supporters there're especially during the pandemic. Bob, can you tell us more about what you heard from them and how they're thinking about voting this time around sure I mean they are still overwhelmingly in favor of president trump overwhelmingly but. Then you have to define what is overwhelmingly mean in two thousand sixteen. He got eighty percent of the vote in the general election. So will he get eighty percent of the vote? Will he get seventy percent of the vote will as many people show up to vote for him? These are all questions that are uncertain at this point, the answers to which. Are, uncertain as I say the people there in general are still quite supportive but even his supporters wonder if other supporters are basically suffering from what you might call trump fatigue, the four years of controversy the pandemic which it's Cannon County as much as it hits, you know anywhere else you know all the controversies and so even his supporters wonder whether they'll get. As larger turn out, it doesn't mean necessarily vote for Joe Biden mean that they don't show up to vote another issue is that it's a place with the weak economy as I said and the number and people are leaving people the population there is being greatly reduced over the past twenty thirty years and even from two thousand, sixteen to two, thousand twenty, there are fewer people in the county. So there are fewer potential voters for the president. Did you talk to any voters who did vote for trump in two thousand sixteen and are now considering voting for? Biden. Yes. I spoke particularly to a couple. Francis and Rayburn. Minton who run a clinic in Grundy it's tucked away in a food city supermarket and they as are many people in that area they were Democrats. This is an area that until Brock Obama actually voted democratic in the presidential election like a Lotta places in West Virginia and in South West Virginia, and then they had voted for president trump largely. Because of his promises about the coal economy bring back know the local economy to stronger state and they now are voting against him because they are upset at the way they feel he is mismanaged the response to cove it. I mean they see it up front you know they do testing for covid and the they have arguments with patients, potential patients, potential customers who WANNA test but we're we're a mask and a attributed a lot of the resistance to wear masks to the president's often disdainful attitude toward mass square.

"In Nebraska. We could go until the election more than 66 million Americans already voted. NPR's Gregg Allman reports. It's the most ballots ever cast in early voting. Because of the Corona virus.

"The US Senate has confirmed. Amy Kuney. Barrett to the supreme. Court. Delivering Donald trump a huge but partisan victory just eight days before the election and locking in right-wing domination of the nation's highest court for years to come. The vote was a formality with senators divided almost entirely along party lines. It still marked a seismic moment for trump for the supreme court and for American democracy. For the president, meant his legacy on judicial appointees secure whatever the outcome of next week's election. Trump will have placed three conservative justices on the court albeit in highly contentious circumstances. For the Supreme Court, it sealed an unassailable six to three balance between conservatives and liberal justices. The oldest of those conservatives Clarence Thomas is seventy two and still has potentially many more years to serve within his lifetime appointment for us democracy. The confirmation gives the conservative justices, the opera hand on such hot button issues, abortion, same sex marriage, and the climate. Crisis Areas where public opinion is firmly in favour of progressive change the confirmation will leave a residue of bitter partisan ranko given the Republican rush to push Barrett. Through days before the election the closest confirmation to a presidential election in US history having refused for years ago to countenance Barack Obama's pick for the Supreme Court on grounds that the people should decide.

"Idea that a unified government whether it's Republican or Democrat is the sort of the best case outcome if you like or the better case, can you just give us a bit more detail about why exactly that works out that way and tell us a bit about maybe what the ramifications of a divided government could be I mean historically, we have seen various episodes of this in the past it's just is easier whether it's Democrats or Republicans doesn't matter but as long as unified. It's easier for them to move on their priorities to decide and agree on spending decisions may be on aspect of foreign policies CETERA. Again, whatever the outcome will be good or bad from the point of view of markets or effective countries as a different subject but it's just easier for them to move on and we believe when we think about how this will translate into growth prospects in to res-q sentiment, this is going to be at the slightly more favorable.

Michael Boorda what actions do you advise investors to consider taking ahead of the vote in November does obviously now growing attention on this topic and nothing rightly. So but we always remind people that they shouldn't be overly aggressive in positioning eater outcome and that's essentially because of two reasons. One is the uncertainty are still high I? Think either candidate can win and you know you need to be mindful of that. It's very difficult to predict the outcome at this planning time. And that's probably even more important Fox bonds and currencies in other words. They're influenced by many many many different factors in the US election is important clearly about it's by far not the only one, and so while very likely, we're going to see bouts volatility in the next couple of weeks and months related to perceived outcome of this event I. Think it's just very very important to know. Whatever the outcome is, it's very unlikely to derail globally diversey five foot forty, and so the key message here for message really is that they should stay invested despite maybe slightly Hiram surtees because what we know from the lost twelve years now is.

So given the weakened state of the United States economy the immediate priority of the Knicks Administration will likely to be on boosting economic growth and. Now, trump favors further deregulation and lower taxes, but also an America first approach to international treat. Now in contrast, Biden is seeking higher taxes and tighter regulations, but he also wants more spending on Climate Change Mitigation federally funded healthcare and a higher minimum wage. So in our view, a new wave or a unified democratic government is not necessarily a risk of event for us equities because accelerated fiscal spending should offset the impact of higher. Texas.

In today's program our all of whom country to the report we'll consider the impact of the vote for investors in their home region they'll discuss the potential market implications and some of the best investment approaches to take in the lead up to the election. They'll reflect to on the diverging policy platforms of Donald Trump and Joe Biden and consider scenario based investment ideas that could perform in the event that either contender wins the White House and Congress the so-called red and blue wave scenarios. Let's start with the APEC view mainland Tana's chief investment officer a pack for UBS Global Wealth Management million-ton as carefully wrote in the introduction to the pace last month truly the US presidential election is a global event just reminders exactly why what happens in November is relevant wherever in the world you are national elections tend not to be global events but the US presidential election itself is an exception. So the United States is the world's most powerful economy, its stock market accounts for more than half of the MSI world index ended dollar is involved in nine out of ten currency transactions globally. So the women November will influence a literal of issues that could dry financial markets from domestic taxation regulation of big tech and health policy to the US Joe. Political strategy will white. And for us in Pacific, this election will matter more than any in the past given that U s China relations are at their lowest point in over forty years. So developments around trade technology, capital markets, and supply chain restrictions will have to be closely watched. Let's talk next to midland more specifically about the picture is the big narrative hair still how U S China relations will shape up depending on the outcome of the vote or or is there a bit more to it than that? So you as China tensions will always expected to intensify of the November elections and the spread of the corona virus and the implementation of the Hong Kong? National Security Law, her father exacerbated the matter. Now president trump's combative approach towards Beijing hasn't helped but one should not assume that pressure from the United States would disappear if trump were to leave office. Agreed Paulo rivalry now defines the US China relation. So a strategy of China containment that's driven not by protectionism per se but by national security considerations has brought bipartisan support and look set to continue regardless of occupies the White House so measures relating to high tech export controls the hallway ban seafood investment screening, and so forth could well persist in all view is that investors should brace for future of increasing structural decoupling between the two superpowers but still political several wrestling doesn't necessarily need to translate into an immediate, all extreme economic outcome. Now. Both the United States and China are aware of the constraints imposed by the deep economic interdependence..

"presidential election" Discussed on The Lawfare Podcast

"If you look at the three states that are probably going to be the swing states in twenty twenty. If you look at Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin remember these are the three states that secured the victory for trump in two thousand, sixteen by Total by Total of seventy thousand votes, and if you look at those three states, they all share the same kind of political profile in that Republicans control the State Legislature and Democrats control governorships. And again the reason I think that is. is potentially explosive situation is it increases the likelihood that like in eighteen, seventy six. You could get contrasting. That is competing or contradictory electoral certificates coming from those three states with the presidential election the balance. So one other issue you explores the problem of faithless electors. Talk a bit about what that phrase refers to, and what the challenges are that it presents. Well the the face electric problem is again. It's one of these things that is It's something that kind of is endemic to this bizarre way that we go about the president's. Namely these electors a nowadays are basically figureheads, the usually Kinda party Mucketty mucks who? Are Meant to perform a ceremonial function namely casting their vote, for whoever within that state basically pledged to the candidate, and they will vote for that candidate if that candidate carries the popular vote in state, but at the same time out there individuals, and they can go rogue, or they can become what you described his faithless, namely engaging in some kind of independent act of up judgment casting the vote. However, they choose so for example in two thousand sixteen. We had a large number of. Of the so-called fifth selectors, we had ten who, either cast their vote faithfully or try to do so, and in that particular case, it didn't have any outcome. It didn't affect the outcome of the election, which is to say that it couldn't happen. One thing that it did do. Is that now this term? The Supreme Court heard oral arguments about a faithless elector case. Could you talk a little bit about what were the exact fact patterns that led to the the case of the court? In mid May in how to oral arguments go. So, it was actually a two cases that the court was hearing. So one arose, coming out of Colorado and the Oakland rose coming out of Washington state and Colorado in Washington, both had up put into place laws attempting to bind these electors, basically saying that. Hey. If you're going to be functioning as selector, you have to be You have to vote according to the outcome of the popular vote. You can't just kind of go roads and there are thirty two states district of Columbia have such laws, and in the case of Colorado. There was a actually release. Three electors one of them. Was Michael ACA and In Boca ended up going road, and he was replaced a, he actually was pledged to Hillary Clinton Clinton when the state pretty handily he'd wanted to vote for case accused part of this kind of national movement that was looking for an alternative to a donald trump and hinder being replaced, and then he brought a suit, saying hey, I'm elector. Constitutional right to vote the way I want to. And the state laws unconstitutional and a divided appellate court in federal court agreed with him this federal court panel. A two one vote, said Yeah, this Colorado statutes constitutional because it constraints, he is constitutionally vested discretion to vote as he wants Washington state had very similar kind of case, and they had the Washington. State Supreme Court teams, exactly the opposite conclusion, they concluded no, no, no states are authorized to constrain their electors, and so when you had these. Contrasting a decisions from different courts ended up before the supreme. Court is all argument just a couple of weeks ago in that oral argument, which was at auction, a merrily free of any kind of flushing noises in the background we saw the Supreme Court is is likely to uphold the statutes that constrain the electors I thought it was a pretty interesting oral argument of Larry LESSIG. He made it argument supporting the right of electric to do as they want, and I think it's fair to say that most of the constitution materials as support, his case, and yet it's clear that the Supreme Court even the originalist among the Supreme Court. Had No stomach for doing electors to potentially. Create chaos elections so effect. I think it was that Brad Kavanagh in one of in while he was questioning Lessig, he said something like We'd like to adhere to avoid chaos principle of judging. So it seems likely that the court will uphold these laws that constrain electors, but that doesn't necessarily solve the problem of the rogue electric. I have to say for the faithless elector. When lessig in when the tenth circuit is talking about a constitutionally vested interests. What exactly do they mean? Where does that interest derived from an in this is for one of the interesting. Features of the of the book is that there's a misconception maybe that the constitution is sort of gives guardrails that confer stability legitimacy to elections, but in reality in this case if you were to indulge the the argument made by less Sega made by the Colorado elector than actually SORTA does the opposite. Yeah exactly it would be incredibly. It'd be very potentially very destabilizing if one were to be faithful to a constitutional principles in this regard, which again it's sort of also reveals the I think some of the deep problems with the jurisprudence so I don't know what it means to have. Yours prudence would says we're going to be faithful to original meaning of the constitution unless we. We don't like those original meanings, but the original meaning seemed to be a pretty clear that the electors were meant to be people of independent judgement that was the reason why the affiliates of the Constitution created the Electoral College in the first place there were debates at the time as to whether a for example should be a direct popular vote for the presence of netted states. States and the framers felt that that the people wouldn't be sufficiently informed about the candidates. They'd be ignorant about the candidates, so they would be kind of prone to vulnerable to demagoguery, and so it was important. People of high standing of who've had attained a high education would be able to make this important deliberative judgment, and that's what the electors were supposed to do and quickly system moves away from that into the system we have now in which the electors, basically just these figureheads were pledged the candidates who carry the votes of whoever wins the popular vote in state, and so the original logic of the electoral college disappeared at two hundred years ago and if we were to revive the original hatchet, if Argo be pretty dangerous for our democracy, today. And, so you mentioned that you think regardless of what the Supreme Court does. It doesn't solve the faithless elector problem. Why is that well? I guess there are a couple of reasons why it might not solve the faithless elector problem. One of them is I. I sort of implicitly suggested before when I think I mentioned. That were thirty two states district of Columbia have created these laws that constrain. Electors but that leaves eighteen states without those laws and one of the swing. States that we were discussing Pensilvania. Pennsylvania doesn't have a law that constraints electors, and so for example, the for some reason again we had an incredibly a tight election. You know something like what we saw in two thousand and we suddenly saw a electors in Pennsylvania. Go Road. It's possible that those electors could basically create an electoral crisis and there's really nothing you can do at that point. Because the really wouldn't have been a legislative act. Put in place prior to their voting. That would have been able to remove them..

"Mail and voting. It's the law fair podcast June sixteenth. Lawrence Douglas on, presidential election concessions. I want to start with the fact that you know which is something that I think a lot of us take for granted, but you sort of introduced an additional distinction to and so you know that every single presidential election has seen a peaceful uncontested transition to the Oval Office for the winner. Butare claim a little bit further you right that it's not only that every losing incumbent has submitted to their loss submitted to their fate, but they've actually conceded defeat. Talk a little bit about that history, and why that distinction matters. Right so the distiction drying between a submission and concession was submission is a kind of defacto recognition that you've lost could imagine like a sports team even if the team that they can kind of cheated at victory, they kind of walk off. The field heads hanging low. They realized that they've lost. There's nothing more they can do about it. Concession strikes me as a much more kind of normally interesting act because what is happening when someone concedes. Concedes, is recognized the legitimacy of their loss that is recognized that there was a fair competition, and in this fair competition they did not prevail, and it's it's kind of. It's both sort of a a humble. It's also kind of a pretty remarkable gesture. Exactly think that an American veteran kind of constitutional attrition can't really exist without a willingness of the losers to concede that is to recognize that the process by which their loss arose was a legitimate one. Right, so we get into into the details of the book I. Think There's a sort of. Initial, so what question? That's actually related to the first one so per the twentieth amendment. Regardless of whether there's some sort of improbable delay in the election or refusal to concede Nancy Pelosi on January twentieth of next year. Becomes the acting president so bracketing any apocalyptic predictions? What's the damage that's done if an incumbent fades out without that sort of performance concession well one thing I guess we should point at his first of all I'd just as a kind of a narrow technical matter, it's not necessarily the case that Nancy Pelosi would become a precedent if there is no president-elect. Come noon on January twentieth one thing that she would have to do, she would actually have to resign her post as speaker, and so that's that's something where. I don't think we can just take it for granted that she would do that, but let's think about that period between January six, which is when Congress meets for the purposes of tallying and certifying the final electoral count and January twentieth, which is when the next presence is supposed to be inaugurated, or in the case of a reelection freshly inaugurated. There's a lot of mischief that can take place. I made Engage, in this kind of apocalyptic scenarios as you know of this book is not meant to be kind of seven days in May scenario, in which I imagine you know the failings of rogue secret service agents surrounding a precedent WHO's. You know locked himself in the Oval Office. That's really not what I'm imagining but what I can certainly imagine. Is that and I don't think I'm alone in this imagining that. There's an opportunity for of civil unrest in this country. I. Mean You have a president to right now? In the middle of this? Kovic, pandemic has talking about liberating. A states and we saw that in the wake of his tweets about liberating the states we see these really kind of very disturbing images of people with their automatic weapons inside the State House in Lansing. Michigan and you know I think the opportunities for violence are not to be overlooked especially if you have a president, who is willing to really play constitutional brinkmanship and that's. That's something we've never seen before. In this country I. Mean we've never we've had contested elections. We've had contest elections. In which arguably the person who ended up conceding was sort of cheated out of victory, and yet we've never seen a president willing to really push things to the maximum, and that's kind of a very sort of dangerous state of affairs, and if I can just go one more moment, no one of the things that I think came out became really clear to me in writing. The book is kind of asked by software what? Kind of. Constitutional materials kind of constitutional norms or federal or legal procedures. We haven't placed in order to secure the peaceful succession of power. If you do have a president who is willing to play this kind of Provincia, and what I realize is we don't really have those materials, and you know one of the things we try to point out as the constitution, it presupposes the peaceful succession of power. It does not secure the peaceful succession of power. Right, so now I'm interested in exploring those pinpoints of it so basically you spend most of the book exploring these sort of vulnerabilities in our electoral system and historical samples when they come to cause problems. I don't WanNa start actually with something that I think may be best encapsulates the. message of the book, which is the epigraph, so the epigraph is. It says it's a quote by Tom. STOPPARD says it's not the voting. That's democracy. It's the counting. So what is what did you mean with the inclusion of that? In what is that sort of portend about the the vulnerabilities that you you draw pot later in the book? Well, it's unfair to say that democracies have very unusual form of governance and that for Democracy to work you know. This is all kinds of pretty self explanatory, but it is in general this notion of metrics, heart, majoritarian rule, and we have to basically have procedures that. Make sure that the majoritarian voice is heard in an election, and what is absolutely critical is for the people to have faith in the integrity in the transparency of those procedures and one of the things that obviously I'm not the only one to observe this one of the things that trump has done is he has worked very determinedly to erode faith in the transparency and the integrity of those procedures, and it's a very kind of again sort of a dangerous and unusual situation, because it's unmistakably the case that given the fact that. That once you're in power, you have a lot of perks and there are a lot of great things for being an elected official, and so the temptation for fraud is very very great, and we've seen elections in the.

"And it's just you you and one other person under the microscope in the pressure cooker one on one debates because it's gotten a little ugly out there. It's gotten a little nasty. It's not much fun. Sometimes media attention office article records public. I'M NOT GONNA pick on an invalid attack ads. What else could it have been in with these ads that drove up Michael Dukakis negatives in the eyes of independence and Reagan Democrats and of course in the end there can only be one qualified presence events voice and congratulated him on his victory. Did a great job in the primary enforcing screwed up the final which was a very winnable rice but didn't do the grassroots stuff and made a decision which turned out to be. It's pretty dumb decision that I was not going to respond to the Bush attack campaign. You know keep it positive the saddest thing you wanNA keep it positive but if somebody's hatchet with stuff you've got to have carefully strategy for dealing with it and I basically said we're not going to do that and it hurt me but it's just so much to go through and possibly not make it to the end yeah when we were speaking with Governor Dukakis and he was telling us this story. I just had to know what that does to you. Did you become disillusioned with politics through that process. No I'm not a guy points out of the people I thought I thought I was responsible for my my defeat because has if these mistakes and they weren't somebody else's mistakes delegates responsibility to campaigner somebody else also I mean and you got to take responsibility. No it did just you know they weren't mistakes great primary and some lessons there for these candidates. particularly in a multi headed race. Don't start attacking some of your Villa Democrats. The fact is Dukakis will always have been one of the two staring down. The Barrel of the presidency. Last question is what is it like. After the fact has your life changed significantly having been the nominee and getting so close yes in one respect I think despite my loss that people look at you as somebody who's had assessing missing experiencing say and particularly now you know what was it like. What do you think and how do you think the candidates are doing this kind of thing and people? I think probably credit you with some degree of experience and maybe wisdom when it comes to this kind of thing I think possibly the real answer to what's it like to run for president is try it and you'll find out kid try it. You'll find out I am not going to which for political purposes my opponent's youth and inexperience. They have so many opportunities from this country. Just don't want to see us fall backwards paying for this microphone the Commerce Education and the what's the third one there. Let's see when I came back and Vietnam. I just had the greatest brainwashing that anybody can get read. My Lips forgot to mention. We really only been talking about presidential until elections that played out without too much drama because there are attack ads and then there's violence fraud contested votes and in constitutional crisis what election you talking about. We're talking about the eighteen seventy six election the one that has been called and I quote the ugliest most most contentious presidential election ever really Carlson from Wisconsin public radio. He is going to be joining us at the end of every episode in the series to share one of his favorite favorite presidential elections all that ugliness and contentiousness had a pretty profound affect on American history. Even if the candidates in that election aren't exactly top tier historical figures today to governors Republican Ruth Aford Behave of Ohio and Democrats Samuel J Tilden of New York Tilda both of them were known as reformers and dance because the outgoing administration of President Ulysses grant had developed a reputation for how do I put this nicely needing reform. What did grant do what wasn't so much what grant did but the people underneath him whom he trusted and maybe shouldn't have love were alternately enriching themselves at the font of government helping their friends so the country was not feeling great about its direction. The economy had been in trouble for a number of years and the two people who were nominated to succeed grant were were seen as straight and narrow guys even if they weren't the most exciting candidates in fact one of his nicknames was old granny okay so who won. Brady well from the looks of the Popular Vote Tilden appeared to have narrowly won which would have made him the first Democrat to win the White House in twenty years in fact the Republican nominee old granny hayes went to bed on election night believing that he'd lost that as we've seen so many times winning the popular alert vote does not equal winning presidency the votes that matter are electoral votes two hundred seventy two win in eighteen seventy six the magic number then was one hundred eighty five tilden had one hundred eighty four hayes had one sixty five but there were three states where Republican said Tilden only one here because there'd been massive voter suppression fraud all kinds of trouble and there was also a single electoral vote from Oregon that was held up as well so there are twenty electoral votes still still up in the air faithless electors all over the place and at the same time Democrats are saying there has been suppression and voter fraud in other parts of the state caused by Republicans. There was even a story that the election board one of those disputed states had offered to certify the election for Tilden and the Democrats in exchange for a million dollars so ironically in this campaign in with to reform candidates both parties end up saying the other has tried to steal the election and meanwhile. There's nobody with majority of electoral votes. What are we doing. There's no winner under the constitution. It's up to Congress to count the electoral votes and Congress was like it is today split the house had a democratic majority the Senate Republican majority so they decided to set up an electoral commission to review and then award these disputed electoral votes they set it up so it would have five members of the US House five senators and five Supreme Court justices and it was politically balanced. There will be seven. Republicans seven Democrats and one independent ended that sounds like a total circuit and it's about to get even weirder the Independent Justice Guy Called David Davis Justice from Illinois and just as Congress is about to convene this very carefully put together delicately balanced committee Davis Gets Word Back from Illinois that surprise the Democratic majority legislature there has elected him to the US Senate so Davis decides he can't be on the commission he resigns and the other four justices approve his replacement Joseph Bradley who was a Republican and so the commission has eight Republican members who then outvote the seven Democratic members to award all of the disputed you did electoral votes to the Republican refer behaves giving him one hundred eighty five electoral votes a one vote majority over Tilden and Rutherford behave. Hey gets a new nickname to replace old granny. He's now called rougher fraud author fraud. ooh Laver won. They knew what they were doing back then and there's more congress than has to decide whether or not to accept the commission's decision because under the constitution that's their job. The Republican Senate is ready. See for Rutherford. The Democratic House is still convinced. He's rather fraud and they decide. Maybe they're just not gonNA take up the Electoral College vote at all and all of this under the threat threat of maybe having an empty chair in the Oval Office your the clock is ticking here. When March fourth eighteen seventy seven rolls around president grant is leaving office and unless unless someone is declared the winner of the election who's the next president going to be so finally the two parties work out a deal. Democrats say they will accept the commission's conclusion and and they will vote to accept Hayes as the winner but on a certain condition they want federal troops removed from the capitals of several southern states they had been there during reconstruction to among other things ensure that states were protecting the civil rights of black residents. This deal goes through March second which means president elect has a transition transition period of two days a little rough for him sure but only a small hurdle compared to what was coming for black. Americans whites have called this the compromise as of eighteen seventy seven African Americans have long called it the great betrayal one more note about this election Hayes of course goes on to be president as Tilden he used to joke that he had the great honor of being elected president without having to deal with all the headaches of the office but it had to have heard at least a little bit and and you might find his true feelings about the eighteen seventy six election on his tomb in New York where you'll find the words quote I still trust the people thank you brady beer.
