Senate to confirm Trump's Supreme Court nominee a week ahead of Election Day
"Later today if you Senate majority leader Mitch, McConnell's predictions proved accurate the US Senate will vote to confirm amy coming Barrett to the US Supreme Court Bar will be the judge that the Republican Party has been able to put on the bench during President Donald Trump's term, and while she may not be the controversial of these herself her. Confirmation is the Republicans have breezily disregarded the convention which they invoked for years go to keep a barrack Obama nominee from even having confirmation hearings on joined with more on this by Christian mcnichols news editor and Claude Harrington associate professor of American politics at Montfort University. Claude first of all is this now actually a done deal is they the remotest chance at all Barrett doesn't get put on the bench? I think it's. All bots jail she seems to be there I. IT's. It's quite staggering to see how fast. The process can move when people actually wanted to unlike 'em time round as you mentioned just a moment ago. So yeah, I would say unnecess- some unanticipated and catastrophe she's had. Chris, the Republicans hypocrisy here is mildly staggering MRIs, of course, the same Republican Party that four years ago clutched polls and affected vipers at the very idea of even holding confirmation hearings for Merrick. Garland who Barack Obama wished to put on the court in the last year of his presidency they going to do this about a week out from a presidential election. But this isn't what justifies the trump thing in the as far as the Republican establishment is concerned absolutely I mean I think the issue is if you look at this from a purely political perspective taking out the the hypocrisy argument if you will Mitch McConnell and the Republicans in the Senate have achieved. What they wanted to achieve and they have, they have given people who voted for Donald Trump essentially what they wanted I think you can divide those who voted for Donald Trump in two thousand sixteen obviously into many different camps. But there were there were those who voted for trump himself. But then there were many who simply voted for a Republican with this in mind with the idea in minded, they would be able. Influence. The Supreme Court for decades to come remember as you said at the beginning Obama was denied I'm nominee that meant that there was a vacant spot open right when Donald trump was elected president, which was then filled and that in itself would have been a dramatic swing in the other direction. So we shouldn't forget that it was a very conservative Justice Antonin Scalia who had passed away or shortly before the two thousand sixteen. Election. So we have seen a dramatic shift in the court compared to what would have happened if Hillary Clinton had been elected president and so in that sense. Yes. From a purely political perspective, the Senate Mitch McConnell who is a traditional Republican was You could argue very much power political individual who was willing to stomach donald trump and some of his politics because he knew that this is what he would be able to achieve. At once amy conybeare. At ease confirmed, that will give the Supreme Court, a six three conservative majority. Now, that's not absolutely set in stone Supreme Court justices have been known to have minds of their own from time to time, but is it possible from distance to assess what difference that could make to American politics for as Chris quite rightly points out potentially decades ahead of us. Yes I think that that's absolutely not an overstatement to to to to say how significant this is. You know what they did. There would be an ideological. Conservative majority from this point on and. There's a couple of things I suppose one is. What it might mean in terms of what's coming before the court you know in the short to medium term I mean there are. Big issues coming down the road to do you know things on climate change on immigration and other major. Political stumbling blocks the one that's coming soon as I really am the one that's going to get the most attention for the moment is a vote on the for care act and that is coming before the courtroom, November and it's about rather than the the. Statute in its entirety is to be deemed unconstitutional or can can parts of it be on picked now? Komi Bats. Take on. This is going to be enormously important because if there is a possibility that's M obamacare in its entirety could be undermined and that's that's a fairly enormous moment. I think for the country not least when it's in the the grip ave, a public health crisis. Chris at the top of the show, we did play a quote by senator. McConnell which struck me as slightly all I don't know whether he misspoke or just found himself saying the quiet out loud. But he said a lot of what we've done over the last four years. We'll be undone sooner or later by the next election is that Mitch McConnell assuming or perhaps even hoping that trump gets beaten next Tuesday It wasn't interesting remark wasn't it? It's it's hard to say I think there might be a little bit of that in in his remarks you can read into it I do think more importantly though his comment related to what I was saying earlier I would argue that he is making this case almost a gloating case to say you can undo whenever you win whether it is in November as the polls suggest. Currently or not you can. You can undo much of what we did in the four years in electoral terms in legislative terms I should say, but you cannot undo what we've done on the court that will remain that will remain something that stays for a long period of time. The one thing I just wanted to say on that as well. I think it will be interesting with this conservative majority To really see how aggressively they go after that to to Mitch McConnell's point if you will things like the affordable care act they were passed by Congress if there is a Democratic president with Joe Joe Biden becoming president, they will have an opportunity to pass laws to to to change laws as well. Of course. So the question really will be to what extent this cord goes after laws declaring things. Versus giving Congress an opportunity to sort of legislate when it comes to things like healthcare as well. There were some interesting remarks I just add for Amy Coney Barrett on this in the past, he's talked about the idea of precedent the idea of who legislates when when you overturn precedent and she did have a little bit of a line to say she will own the overturn precedence. If there is still controversy in a certain issue. So if it is something that is divisive and it has not been decided if there is an overwhelming public support for something, she also believes that it's not the courts job to overturn it, and so that I think will be a key thing to watch going forward if we have say a democratic President Democratic majority but a conservative court. Claude if next Tuesday is a big win for the democratic. Party. As Senator Mitch McConnell appears to think it's going to be the not completely without options are there is the possibility as has been floated off expanding the Supreme Court but do you think a democratic administration would be willing to spend political capital doing that? Yes. It's interesting to see how the the the kind of the tightrope that Biden has been walking in his language on this topic and you know any mention of packing the court does. Bays alarm bells, I think in causes some concern people start talking about FDR on his efforts back in the day. I would say, maybe there might be an possibly needs to be a conversation about reforming court gets in its current. Is. Having become such a punishment killed body and it's certainly not what the framers set out to be, and the does probably you know some serious conversations that need to be had I suppose as one other point as well. Maybe just more. And immediately, is that the last male liberal on the court Stephen Prayer is the HVAC too. So. I. Mean He seems in relatively good shape put. It's quite likely that whoever is President the next four years, we'll have the opportunity to put. A new justice on the court. So that's just something to think about in terms of the balance clothes. Harrington Christian. Thank you both for joining
The Grave Robbing Mobsters - burst 1
"Kind of a side story that I'd never heard before and I happened to stumble across while noodling around on the internet in my research on the Chicago outfit. Now, we're going to kind of dip back into the hole in the wall gang a little bit and in regards to the Hole in the Wall Gang. I can't remember if I've said this or not. I had bought a telephone calls back and forth and and helped a guy named Ernie d'avino get connected up with a company that was trying to do a documentary on the Hole in the Wall Gang dead. Ernie died I just found out here recently. So he and Frank cullotta. They were both in the Hole in the Wall Gang. They both claimed credit for starting the Hole in the Wall Gang and I'll tell you right now they didn't really like each other. They didn't really know each other later in life. But see Ernie never broke her knee took the hit and did some time out of that birth escaped her that night and he actually went to Tony Spilotro his trial testified that don't cilantro didn't know anything about that didn't have anything to do with it tried to help him beat that case. Of course. Tony was killed shortly after that. So I don't remember if he was actually found guilty for them all in the Wall Gang versus burglary or not. But in Jonas had no done now both Frank and Ernie or dead, but this is a little different sort of a story and I'm going to start talking about a month Hollywood movie producer man has he was born under the name of Evron go bogging but he became known as Michael Todd. He started out as a young man. He grew up up down. North central part of the United States and moved to Chicago started out in the construction business then kind of got into the film industry when he was working on soundproofing stages when this home when the pictures first changed from Silent to talking films during the Depression, they would go bankrupt but he came back in the construction business and World War Two came along during World War II just start getting into the movie business and right after World War Two probably is like more like the early fifties. He developed a new big screen film processing operation called said, I don't know if you remember Center. Am I remember probably when I was in late grade school, it came out with these huge big screen Productions that were Cinerama. They were mainly web application and had the Big Sky country as a background. He broke off from the company that develops Cinerama, which he had been involved with and developed another widescreen film process wage. Became known as tadeo. And that was immensely popular his I think his first success with that was a film version of the real popular. Musical, Oklahoma. I'll try to sing Oklahoma for you, but it would not sound good. Just remember they spell out. Okay l a h o m a Oklahoma. Okay. That's the extent of my saying folks his next big hit was Around the World in Eighty Days and I remember seeing that I think of it as a freshman in high school or something. It was a huge big production that a lot of fun. It was a comedy and won an Academy Award for the best picture in 1957, but in the very next year 1958 Michael Todd at the very peak of his success, he'd won an Academy Award. He was going all around the country. He was getting all kinds of offers and he was it was going from one part of the country to the other. I can't remember exactly page where it was a small private plane and it was killed in an airplane crash at this point in time. He was also married to the most popular and what some would say the most beautiful actress in Hollywood Elizabeth Taylor dead. That the peak of her career in the fifties. They lived Hollywood Legend through huge big parties. They lived on a lavish scale. He left a huge big estate after he died in this airplane Christ. It was wage estimated three to five million dollars. Now that doesn't seem like so much now in 1957 325 million dollars was probably more like forty to fifty million dollars Thirty to fifty million dollars at the estate office to Elizabeth Taylor and they had a daughter together named Elizabeth Frances and wonder whatever happened Elizabeth Frances Todd, or maybe she used the name of gold bug and I don't know. I've never heard of the daughter off the other half of this state went to his son by a former marriage that Michael Todd Jr. During the years since his death and internment and they had a big funeral and Chicago and he was buried in Chicago but people started a rumor that Elizabeth Taylor as they closed the coffin down on him and put a big ten carat diamond ring that was valued at $100,000 on Thurs. Has been stronger now authorities would later say that anybody who did even a little bit of research in read the newspaper articles about the accent would figure that there probably wasn't enough left a Michael, body to put any kind of a ring on but maybe you know, I guess you might assume she just throw it in the casket with him. I don't know

Six constitutional amendments are on Florida's 2020 ballot
"Rhetoric from President Trump calling the elections integrity into question, claiming, for instance, that mail in voting is not secure, raises fears about a contested election. But an attorney who represented George W. Bush in the legal battle over Florida's president to recount in 2000 does not foresee problems. This will not be repeated 2000 and second. I don't anticipate any serious problems this year in Florida. And probably in any states. Barry Richard says Florida has made several changes no more hanging chads for one designed to reduce the risk of election disasters. Six proposed amendments to the state Constitution include one that would open Florida's primaries, Amendment three would create a single primary for all candidates of all parties. The top two finishers in that would go on to the general election. Supporters say it would force candidates to appeal to a wider audience. Those include a South Florida businessman Mike Fernandez. Who has put more than a million dollars into the campaign to get Amendment three passed Amendment Four on this year's ballot would require proposed amendments in future years to pass twice in two different elections to become part of the state constitution.

Breaking Down Joe Biden's Plan To Make The U.S. Carbon Neutral
"At Thursday's debate, there was this telling exchange about climate change. Would you close the? Transition from oil minister yes. I was trying to. It is a big statement president trump again boosted the fossil fuel industries contributing to global warming. Joe. Biden is campaigning on a plan for net zero greenhouse gas emissions by twenty fifty and peers. Jeff Brady has more on his two trillion dollar proposal Joe Biden's climate plan is ambitious for an economy as big and complex as the United States but even those connected to fossil fuel industry. Say it. May Be Doable Scott Siegel with the energy focused law firm Bracewell says plan is pragmatic and includes both regulations and incentives for the growing list of companies focused on using cleaner energy in the future one thing that makes Biden's approach somewhat comfortable is that you can sketch out that linear commitment to additional resources to achieve these objectives which I think most people in business believe are going to be. The future anyway, the country has one example of meeting an ambitious climate goal. The Obama Administration's clean power plan aimed to cut emissions from power plants about a third by twenty thirty even though court challenges stopped the plan from going into effect, the country is ahead of schedule David. Doniger. IS WITH NRDC Action Fund the political arm of the Natural Resources Defense Council, the power sector is already undergoing. Changes have reduced their emissions by more than thirty percent ten years ahead of the target that the Obama Administration thought was aggressive in two thousand fifteen. A big part of that was the collapse of the coal industry coal fired power plants continue to go out of business replaced with cheaper natural gas and renewable energy. Still, the Biden, climate plan faces significant hurdles it relies on technologies that haven't been. Developed or may not be commercially viable. That's why the plan includes four hundred billion dollars over a decade for research with the economic hit from the coronavirus pandemic Biden's campaign updated the plan this summer it includes billions of dollars to hire people for things like plugging abandoned mines and building electric vehicle charging stations. Steph Feldman with the Biden campaign says, the plan also focuses on environmental justice forty percent. Of the benefits of those investments, go to communities of color and low income communities that have been disproportionately harmed by pollution and the exit climate change. This is especially important to the most vocal climate change activists while Biden has distanced himself from the green new deal. It is popular especially with the left wing of his party Jenny Marino Zimmer with three fifty actions as this is the strongest plan. Yet from a Democratic presidential nominee, the Biden campaign has committed to doing some really great things like ending leasing of also feels on public lands. We'd like to see them go further and create a true phase out for the entire fossil fuel mystery over the course of the next decade. Biden's plan has a longer time line for a transition and includes a role for fossil fuels with offsets and. Carbon Capture Amy Myers Jaffe manages the climate policy lab at Tufts University and says, all this is a credible plan for addressing climate change. The Biden campaign has listed the right things but the difference between listing things and getting those things is a big difference. If Biden is elected, he'll likely need democratic congress willing to pass laws and allocate money to make his plan a reality. Jeff Brady NPR
How Trump And Biden Differ On Energy Policy
"We are now just over a week away from election day although we know millions of people have already voted. But in these final few weeks, we've been focusing on some of the policy differences between President Donald Trump and former vice president Joe Biden differences that might not be so easy to discern when they're buried in the middle of campaign rhetoric or debate jobs. Right now, we're going to focus on one revealing moment during last Thursday's presidential debate when the two candidates talked about energy specifically, how should the US get and use power in the future have a transition from their own minister yes? Oh. It is a big statement because I would stop why would you do that because the oil industry pollutes significantly here so let's dig into that a bit more what other two candidates competing visions for us energy policy going forward and what are the implications per workers and the environment to help us sort this out. We've called Dino Grandoni he reports on all this for the Washington Post with us now Dino Grandoni. Thank you so much for talking with us your. Thank you for having me on. So let me just start if we can with that clip that we just played there is a divide and how these to view the future of. US Energy. So when it comes to oil, where does each one stand? Yes. So the two candidates have laid out starkly different visions for what they would like to do with the oil industry and how they would like to transition away from fossil fuels or whether or not. They would want to even do that You saw a Democratic candidate Biden pledge to move away from oil in favor of renewable energy and predicted that that kind of move will generate millions of jobs president trump by contrast says that doing that would be costly and hurt the economy and in particular would hurt the oil producing states where both men are competing for votes. Well. You've recently written that president trump has very recently tried to rebrand himself as an environmentalist which would seem like a difficult sell when his administration has rolled back countless environmental regulations over the past four years and he continues to push for oil coal and gas. So what's his pitch? Yeah, and this is a man who has spent much of his life trying to rebrand himself during various business ventures. So He Over the past year has changed his position and a few different things he has promised to fund restoration of the Great Lakes when in the past White House had proposed cutting money to do that similar story with the everglades in Florida and He is endorsed this idea planting a trillion trees around the world in order to suck carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. President trump is going to have a hard time convincing the public that he is a more environmentally friendly candidate than Joe Biden, release candidate who cares more GONNA do more to solve climate change. His administration has spent the past four years rolling back literally dozens of anti-pollution another environmental rules and that kind of reputations probably baked into the public. At this point president trump has attacked for vice president Joe Biden for what trump a radical climate plant and we do have to say this has been described as by far. The most aggressive climate and energy platform that this country has ever seen from a major party candidate. So could you just just as briefly as you can describe what are some of the key elements? So what Joe Biden wants to do is eliminate US contributions to climate change by the middle of the century and on the way they're doing. So he wants to eliminate greenhouse gas emissions from the power sector in particular power plants by twenty, thirty five, both of those are very aggressive timelines and like you're saying more. Aggressive than anything any other major party candidate has ever put forward. It's in fact more aggressive in some ways than what Bernie Sanders was saying back in two thousand sixteen. So let me ask you this though how does Biden respond to the argument? That's would cost this have tremendous adverse economic impact especially in states that are necessary to for him to win I, mean, how does he respond to that cost the loss of just thousands upon thousands of jobs? Well, he says that his climate plan is also a jobs. Plan that transitioning away from fossil fuels will create millions of jobs in itself to have to install solar panels, built wind turbines. But then also all all the different sort of retrofits that his plan calls for to homes and businesses to make buildings more energy efficient. He really thinks of this as an economic plan in addition to being a plan to stop climate change or headed off at least. Well, we knew though that president trump in contrast president trump has always kind of focused on that economic impact of. This country is kind of reliance on fossil fuels and back in two thousand sixteen many people may remember he promised to reopen coal mines and to bring back coal mining jobs has that happened no that has not happened and we've seen trump talk less and less about coal in the first two state of the Union addresses. He gave he talked a lot about clean call and saving jobs but he dropped those references in the last two state of the Union addresses and we've seen coal fired power plants continue. To Shudder and call nine continue to close down during his presidency not because of any government policy. Really. But experts say it's because of economic pressure Kohl's just gotten to expensive relative to natural gas and renewable 's and what about oil I. The idea that a move away from fossil fuels from reliance on fossil fuels is increasingly popular with the public. I mean, the polls make that clear but apart from that are the economics driving oil to face a similar fate, a colleague of yours reported last month, for example. That British Petroleum VP has come out publicly and said it is shrinking it's oil and gas business and investing in wind and solar. So are sort of economic imperatives or whatever public policy imperatives regardless of what president trump sort of perspective on this are they driving in that direction anyway. So during the pandemic at least in the short term, the oil industry has been hit particularly hard as people driving fly less. There's a lot less demand for oil and that has caused a lot of oil companies to have to. Lay off people and even have to declare bankruptcy in this country that said, there are some experts who do think that oil is going to go the way of coal right now, electric vehicles. There aren't that many being used relative to the entire auto market in the United States, but there's this expectation that adoption of electric vehicles is going to pick up and that's going to really eat into the petroleum business because most of the petroleum in this country is used towards transportation field towards the gas tank in your car. That is Dino Grandoni. He is an energy and environmental policy report with the Washington. Post Dina Grandoni thank you so much for talking to us. Thank you for having me
Top 10 Haunted Crime Scenes
"Starting off our list of haunted crime scenes is the Eden Brown estate on the Caribbean island of Nevis. There're couple versions of this story and they all take place before a wedding. Of course, they do essentially the groom and the best man they get into a fight they pull out their vessels and they kill each other. Oh but they're not the ghosts of the Brown. Estate that would be the bride who still roams the estate and a long white gown waiting for her wedding day. Of course, she is the. Are. They're always brides dressed in their wedding clothes just waiting for their wedding day at these places and it's always really sad because i. they're also always like crying or like they look very like shock they've always been jilted. Yeah. It's not fair. No I. Don't like while in eighteen, twenty, two, this bride Julia. Huggins was set to marry Walter Maynard, his best dude John Huggins was going to be the best man but all was not well of course, there wasn't everyone died. Wheeler Alina a fight was a bruin. So there's like multiple stories about what actually happened and since the story was largely spread by tourism, they all vary a little bit. I feel like the best things in the worst things are always spread by doors. One hundred percent we can account for a lot with tourism well, like I said, there's a few theories. The first is that the grew was having an affair and the best man found out that was his sister. So he was like I'm upset and then the groom was like you are Eliah I think that was it that was it, but there's also some mortgage bonds. Okay. The next one is that the best man like I said was the bride's brother and the groom discovered that they were hooking up with each other on the low, and obviously he went a little bananas about that Allah incest a lot incest. So S- big ill. Another theory we've got another one says that the bride's father now, that's the dad this time was tried for mistreating his sleeves and this was in the eighteen hundred. So you know that was real bad. That was a sharp left turn sharp left. The groom having an affair. Yeah. That's like the classic in the best man is being a good dude and killed them died hero. It's a pretty good wrong com movie actually I picked up I like that one while historians think the real story dates back to a historical rivalry between the maynard and the huggins families the plantation itself dates back to the Century and it was at that time a beautiful property decorated with international furnishings from Africa and China. But today it's in ruins. Really. Sad. But sad torres claim to hear whales of a crying bride enslaves. ooh, and Julia is sometimes spotted in her wedding gown only during the full moon I don't hate that this is in ruin. Now what's meant to be will be yeah don't go there. It's terrible place. Nine. At number nine this week is leap castle and love this one according to ancient legends. Leap Castle is built on an ancient Druid holy site. ooh while we don't know if the druids used the land for human sacrifice, we do know that once the castle was built it did witness hundreds of murders I feel like that's just like what castles do. Yeah. Any good castle worth. Its name seen offend learning the hundreds of murders. You can't be a castle. You know it's a qualification. The best part of this place is that it's named after a little earl leap off a nearby cliff by an ancient Irish abandoned chieftain. ooh. Yeah. He jumped as a sign of bravery to win clan leadership from his brother later, it was taken over by the bloody carols. I want to be friends with them because you definitely don't want to be their enemy. Yeah. You don't want to be an enemy of the bloody. Oh Carols No. Well, they were known for throwing Red Wedding s dinner parties and just straight up killing their guests like the saddest episode of Game Fern. So to picture that was all is affecting me R.I.P Robb stark. Talk. About number be over it. Well, this was way back in the fifteen hundreds. So the it is pretty game of thrones Ian. Yeah. So the carols, this is one of my favorite things they built an uber yet a what an yet. and. What would happen was victims would fall through a trap door into this. googly. It in the remains of one hundred fifty people were found during a nineteen twenties renovation. So I think we have three major ghosts that we want to chat about really quick. Hit me up. One of the ghosts is called the Red Lady. It's an carol hostage, the murdered her baby. Oh, I don't WanNa be a part of them anymore. This is when I got off the OH. Carol, Bandwagon. You're. Not. In.

Should I accept Bitcoin as a payment method?
"Hey Chris this is nick from Salem I recently found your show after a friend recommended it and really enjoying all the side hustle stories I'm getting ready to launch a new APP that will be available for android devices. I'm going to apply for listing in the Google play store as well as several other online directories, but I also want to offer it for direct sale. My own website that we can sell to people who discovered there with the paying commission third party. Again, even offer a discount for direct sales. And come out still ahead by splitting the commission savings between me and my customer. But of course to sell directly I, need away to accept payment pales easy enough. But a friend suggested that I offer an option to take bitcoin as well. I'm not sure if that's a good idea or even how I would go about doing it since there's not really a Bitcoin Bank on every corner at these not right live. Also, what do you think about cryptocurrency in general thanks and I look forward to hearing your response. Thanks Nick appreciate you calling in and let us try to stay on topic here. I. Could probably talk about cryptocurrency for a long time but I don't know that I'm really an expert. So I want to focus on a question of accepting it as a payment option for your side-hustle. Oh, and by the way, I want to say that Knicks idea of selling directly on his website in general leaving aside the payment option thing that is really smart because as he said, he can even offer a discount. Encouraging people to come directly to his website and still come out ahead because Google play and the APP store or the apple APP store they take significant commission. Okay. So definitely good idea there now in terms of whether you wanNA take bitcoin or. Theory or some other crypto currency. I think you operate as an option if your customers wanted. And chances are unless you're selling something and the security your industries maybe there's some other stuff I thought about but. It was something kind of specialized there. Most of your customers won't like I don't think you're GonNa have an avalanche of customers just beating on your door saying I would love to buy from you but if only took bitcoin. Who knows but I would say if you do it and it is possible to do that look at services like coin wallet and Are Different Ways that you can essentially take this as an option in addition to pay pal. But if you do offer it, here's a tip look listings of other sites that accept bitcoin is a currency. They have some directories for people who are actually really into this and want to shop buying sell goods using crypto. If nothing else you can probably get some links from them because they're compiling directories of merchants, take it. So it might actually not be a bad SEO strategy when you're starting out to get links whether or not you get a lot of purchases from it. I would just say don't expect a lot of takers because the number of people who use Bitcoin to buy and sell common items not talking about trading talking about your savings and all that stuff. But the number of people who use Bitcoin to buy and sell common items is pretty small at least right now who knows maybe that will change. The introduction at the price of a Bitcoin is currently about twelve thousand dollars but you know you'd be listening to this. A month or two in the future even just even a short time and it could be totally different. Let alone a year from now or something. So who knows what's going to happen there but nick good luck with your side side-hustle everybody else. Thank you so much for listening.
What About Your Friends?
"An Omni. Not to met in two thousand eleven. This is an talking about that night. We were set up by a friend, our friend dial Ola Padre a genius woman with a lot of foresight and the venue or rather the excuse for us to meet was A. Gossip girl television viewing gathering usually viewing party, but it was it was not a party, right? Like it was a bunch of people on the couch watching TV. Younger listeners won't know what this means, but you used to have to just watch TV when it was on. Like just imagine that TV was on at a specific time kids. So when certain shows like gossip girl became popular, they were just a part of the Zeitgeist because they were only so many things that person could be watching said felt like everyone was watching it. Plus Anna Nami. Naci both lived in DC where young and cable TV, the kind of Ecuador record in advance. If you WANNA to do was expensive and streaming didn't really exist yet it was a simpler time. This is on me not to. You know I was like, okay. I know that she's a feminist lady with like a fun sense of humor which. You know I was like that. That's such a very specific. You know kind of you know like kind of person I was like, yeah. We probably have the same length feminist hope bags probably you know like there's some like ven diagram like overlap there. So like very superficially that was one thing but like within the context of the Party itself, you know I was like everything. Was Fun. It was like yes dioz absolutely. Correct. I love how this lady dresses I love every joke she's telling I love her look I like her ideas I like the way she talks you know when you like imprint on someone that you like immediately like it's almost like they can't do anything wrong like everything is just charming to you and so I was very charmed. It was like that for both of them. They just clicked in that because of the tote bags but because for both of them, they were just in the same as of life and experiencing this phase in the same way. That really was a kind of unsettled kind of unhappy searching point of my life. I mean we were in Washington DC where our peers were pretty transient. Kind of place where a lot of people will go and work for a few years and then move on us included and I think we realized when we went to retrace our steps to write this book that we each had a very close friend who at the time we met was like either in the process of moving or we knew they were just about out the door and there was that feeling of unrooted this is that even a word we were not rooted. And we were really trying to figure out what the next phase of our adult life was going to be like, and so I, think that it really was profound to meet someone who I connected with. So deeply because it really felt like, I don't know it felt like almost like immediately being routed to someone as opposed to being routed to a place which I had not felt in the almost two years I lived in DC at that point.

"public party" Discussed on Politics: Meet Me in the Middle
"Have disagreed with him so I think you do have ex examples. Reagan would probably be Reagan and Clinton would be the two who clearest examples of when impeachment became really viable men. If you go before that it really it never happened as it as a tool. Not An insurance. The I think the question then has to be though. How significant was the Nixon? Impeachment is setting a precedent because we this is now the third since nineteen eighteen. Seventy three seventy four and I think it's not a good thing especially when we're on the eve of election I mean if this guy is so what's that's going to happen if they if let's just say for a minute. That trump does get impeached. What do you think that forty five percent of the electorate forty three three or forty? Whatever it is is going to think if if trump is thrown out of office? I mean. You're you're asking for a practical revolution collusion by people who feel so strongly about it. The best way to get rid of this guy's vote him out of office. If you don't like him I would agree that that's a good practical issued who raise up and I have the exact same worry and fear. I'm having to think though that what the Democrats are thinking is that this would finally really focused the issue. Now that they were going to remove him but it would focus the issue win serve as a lead in to the political campaign also. I think they had hope nope that. By bringing impeachment hearing they would have better effect of subpoena witnesses and documents. It turned doubt it wasn't true but that they would have better grounds forgetting information and getting before the public. But I don't think anyone ever thought it would lead to removal because because if it did it would raise. I believe precisely the dangers that Ed worn is talking about. I think you really have to look at really underneath underneath it. All what is the impeach him about in Nixon's case it was about breaking into a party headquarters and and actually it was about a cover. Cover the cover up that followed him saying what's really underneath at all. It was very soon it was it was very serious in terms of our democratic process. It should have been taken seriously and I don't care whether the president was Republican or Democrat When you in Clinton it was largely it was very political and we don't have time to go into all the details of that but essentially it was you know you had the Starr investigation and we can have a whole nother? PODCAST on that. God forbid we go back to the Kennedy Administration drives but again with trump and there was talk at the time and it among Republicans that were involved that this this was still still they resented what happened with Nixon. This was a certain element of. We're going to get back and that's no reason to impeach but again I'm talking at this point not as Democrat Republican. I'm just looking at what impeachment is four and and how important it is to keep the integrity of our system and when you look at what's involved here I I think it's very important for the integrity of our country and our system. You have a president who even his own attorneys these have basically said is a pathological liar. You've got a president who showed a pattern of corruption a pattern of obstruction of justice. And at what point do you have to say like it or not. We've got to draw a line and I understand what everybody you go to the polls agree agree. I agree that I do believe the ultimate Thing to do is to vote him out of office. I think that's the best thing to do. There was obviously much discussion and debate eight within the Democratic Party whether they wanted to go forward impeachment for me. Personally I would've liked to have seen a a process where they investigated many many many of his unethical corrupt practices abuse of power. You know including two holding the G. Seven at the drill but I'm not in Washington making those decisions so ideally I would have liked to have seen this gone on beyond the next election. And then if if he didn't get voted out of office and but he got take into office with people knowing that he was a bad actor is what I've always said. I've always said the problem is that you can't impeach him for that. We knew who he was he. He lied during the campaign he. He made up a bunch of stuff not being impeached for lying. But I've always liked him for embarrassing us but it's a whole he's different questions always said the the real problem we're having is not. Trump is the fact that sixty three million Americans voted for him and found out solved. The problem though is with another election I it's important to know I mean it's it it. You can't disenfranchise this forty percent. Forty five percent by essentially actually removing the guy from office without creating a huge mess. But I don't think that this really wasn't ministration talking point this isn't about the Democrats mccray overruling the election. This is about corruption in integrity of rock. And I think the question there is you know apart from the fact that he is terribly clumsy clumsy guy that does a lot of stupid things like the drought things a perfect example. What he could have done is say? Oh you know. I'm concerned learned about corruption because there's certainly long sess cesspool history of corruption in Ukraine. And I'm reluctant to turnover. Turnover lethal weapons to Ukraine Until we have real assurance that this is not going to be a repetitive process. Any could could you stop at that. You're apologizing because he's he's clumsy. I think there's more going on here than just clumsiness. If we go back to the founders when Sunday created the impeachment provision other than the other possible things a person could do Alexander Hamilton specifically said that one area why we need the impeachment is we could find out after the election that the election itself was corrupt that the president did something directly worked with a foreign power or other corrupt things to get elected so the election itself was fraudulent but he said the reason why we need this one reason we need this. Is we find out. The prior election was corrupt now if it was found out that trump was actively conspiring with Russia during the election for the release of Hillary Clinton tapes and getting them that would be a classic example. Hamilton's definition I mean there's no doubt it seems to me I don. I think we're all in agreement that if the worst first readings of the steel document and the allegations that were being made against trump early on in the administration turned out to be true that that would be an impeachable the offense. I don't think there's any question about that. But that didn't turn out to be the case and I think that adds to the suspicion that this is just a convenient of makeover makeover when we couldn't prove the case that really everybody would agree is an impeachable offense. We have this unique situation that is so clearly divided on partisan Jason Lines and one of the reasons for it is that the Republicans are unprepared. There is no Republican candidate. That's prepared to come in and take. Hey Gopher in the event that trump goes away and let's not forget how the Republicans initially felt about him running in the first place but he's now put himself in a position of of the ultimate power because there is no other Republican alternative. That is set for an election so the Republican Party all of the Republicans in the Senate are sitting there and saying we will completely lose power completely and many of them will get voted out of office and they will have nothing nothing to say about how this country is governed in the event that they lose this particular president that's put himself in a position of being the only solution for the Republican Public Party. And it's a unique place that we're in right. Republicans Republicans in the Senate and even in the House. Don't have any choice because then there could be a landslide for Democrats if they if they pushed him out I would refine what you said. Bill trump has has taken over the Republican Party. No small small part because there's not a lot of backbone in but also because he's a very effective fundraiser. He's got his base and the base is very active in his very effective fundraiser. So they are very worried about getting married if they don't trump I don't think trump has many friends in on Capitol Capitol Hill. He's not the kind that sort of generates real friends so they will turn on him the minute it's it suits.

"And there are melted multiple aspects of this you know the data I think again multiple interpretations are possible but the data striking striking so the <hes> the sort of type of analysis that Nolan McCarty pool and Rosentahl do which is to look at polarization in into the legislature turn it striking so if you look at devoting patterns of Democrats and Republicans in the Senate or the House <hes> in the fifties and sixty s you know many Democrats voted like Republicans on many bills and he made Republicans voted like Democrats on many bills today there is no overlap yount even even even the most moderate Republican votes way more right wing than the most moderate Democrat and and I think this cannot be completely unrelated to money and politics because one of the things that that happens and we saw that during the <hes> Obamacare if a Republican were to go and join the Democrats and I think this was really tempting for some of the moderate Republican senators like Olympia Snowe they would immediately face it extremely well funded. Thanks to cook brothers or you you know other energy sector and other <hes> sort of stalwart supporters of extreme right wing causes they would force an extremely well funded challenge in the primaries and many of them that weren't actually so moderate like Capterra Paul Ryan have lost because of that sort of our club came came close to losing because of those that sort of challenges so I think that is one part of the equation but you're absolutely right in the past. Even if money spoke spoke so loudly norms would have also gotten underway and I think <hes> organizations the Organization of the Republican Party you know <hes> the Republican Public Party and the Democrats also to a great extent have become much better at correct controlling dissent within themselves which also forces more group group voting and debt is an institutional element adding to the role of money and norms the only thing I would say that <hes> size the fact that I would would just fend the coke is being. They're not right wing on many issues. They're not right wing. I just think it's important to say that they get vilified.

You Know Libertarian Causes pro-immigration right Allie. Don't speak much about it because they don't want to anger <hes> trump so I I don't know so let's put that to the side I think I think we're we agree and it's troubling reality is that the two-party political system system is not very competitive. It's less competitive than it used to be. There's less the ability to control their their members is stronger and I think that's a bad thing thanks. I don't think we understand exactly why that is but it's true agreed. I think there's much or learned areas absolutely now. Let's talk about where we really really agree. Okay so where we really. I didn't know you really agreed with me. On Minimum Wages Russ <hes> no it's not minimum wage is really agree. It is the people at the bottom so <hes> when we think about creative destruction and the opportunities it's interesting you did not mention the benefits of Globalization Asian to consumers you mentioned producers. I think benefits obviously as does automation through competition through forcing businesses to share here the the cost improvements with consumers and normally that reduction and resources required to produce stuff creates opportunities elsewhere friend the economy draws workers into those areas workers who've been left behind or then become <hes> opportunities for businesses to create work for them and that isn't happening the way it used to. It seems to me and in particular this where we agree it's not happening for the lowest skilled workers workers who I'd say graduate high school or not even graduate high school who used to be able to have a decent standard of living in manufacturing say or in some parts of the service sector sector and are not finding those opportunities now so the question is she say or college graduates so college graduates without advanced degrees agrees masters. Mba's specialized degrees there in the same boat. They're finding it harder and harder to get those good jobs. They study if you're in a stem field field. I don't think that's true.

Bad dragon in the past couple of years in this has been going in that for for quite a bit longer. But you know, if Donald Trump is much as I dislike both his policies and his personal behavior and his temperament if he comes out with a good criminal Justice reform plan tomorrow, great like, let's have a conversation about that. I don't find the question of compromise to be a hard question. I think the problem is the Republican party does not want to compromise. I really it's funny. Like, I think there's a lot of agonizing about this among Democrats. But I think that Democrats have been and have been for years, including like when Obama was empowered. But but also now have been much more willing to be open to to working with Republicans on things and public have been working with Democrats. I mean, just look at the difference between the ObamaCare legislative effort and the ObamaCare appeal legislative effort, which was trying to replace it with something and never made any effort to create some kind of bipartisan not just replacement even bipartisan process. By which to do that. You know? Similarly, I think if you look at like the way taxes were done under Obama. There was a lot of effort under the various committees to try to make these things by partisan, and it was not done under Trump and under under the current regime of Republicans. So I don't think the question of whether to compromise is a is a hard question..

I think the question is how much of that change is change of affect and how much of that change, which I which I'm not entirely against and how much of that change is change in actual policy. I think more affect than than policy if I if I had to put my finger on today today. Democrats are. You know, maybe maybe there's hope for the country in this six of the Democrats who picked up seats in in from Republicans are military veterans that usually suggests a little bit more moderate on federal. Yeah. So that means that maybe you're seeing a little bit of that diversification. In the Democratic Party. We don't talk a lot about what the Democratic Party could do to actually be better for the country because you know, we think. But the fact is that a Democratic Party that returns to the idea of having some ideological diversity more affectionate towards the right in the moderate center would be very good for the country. I mean, it would provide at least some sort of center for people to actually talk to that was one of my hopes for the Republicans keeping the house is that it would require. Yep. Yeah.

"So I think there are a couple of interesting things here one is that sometimes a we'll be having one of these conversations. They'll get an Email saying, you know, you guys got to do more policy on the weeds. You know, this is politics, and you can't have. I mean, this is policies downstream from politics, and you can't have a policy conversation. You can't have elections that are sending signals that can be effectively translated into policy, and you can't have accountability for policy-making in a world where the politics is. So divorced from the actual facts on the ground, and where there are trusted arbiters who can make distinctions here. It'd be great if everybody listened to the weeds, and hopefully someday they will. But this is really bad like, this is very very, very problematic. But I do want to back out to something because we're talking about this a minute ago when Matt was bringing up the the history of their publican party. I think you have to look at the history of healthcare in the past under no ten fifteen years as like a moment of near convergence and then a really sharp divergence, and we're now in this divergence divergences destabilized lot of the the Purdue the Republican side of the conversation. So it isn't the case I wouldn't say that like no part of their public party ever came up with a usable plan here. There was in the nineties. And we've talked about this before on the weeds, you know, the Republican alternative to Clinton Bill. It was the first Bill in the Senate that had an individual mandate it had protections. If I'm not wrong for pre existing conditions Mitt Romney than implemented a version of that in Massachusetts. So you had this thing happening where Republicans were making an argument that the way we were going to bring down premiums was we're going to have this regulated market where you couldn't discriminate based on the health status of someone or their age or kind of other factors, and they all had to buy ins they could discriminate. Couldn't only be the sick people buying in and drubbing premiums. And so now if everybody needed to be covered and everybody was getting covered irrespective of their health status, then you would have insurance companies competing to bring down premiums on price and quality..

"I wonder about trump economics and how does that figure into everything that you talk about in your book well what was interesting about the ramifications of these you know sort of subsidizing that the big private banks by the the big central banks throughout the world is i think that's one of the reasons that trump was elected to an extent so first of all you know the fact that people have legitimate economic anxiety about their own lives there before he came right there watching stock market go up there you know seeing how these big banks got away with like so many crimes that have literally been rewarded rather than punished and even if they don't think about that connection to their own there's there's economic anxiety feeling and i think that trump captain into that you know the vote for brexit in the uk tapped into that and i think when people are economically anxious and they're being told they shouldn't be because there's grows and stock markets up and everything else they they they blame their politicians whoever's in office it could be right or left and they want to vote for someone who's not left not they just want to go for the opposite and that's that's part of what i think trump tapped into but then when he got into office what he did was he surrounded himself he said it was going to drain the swamp but he surrounded himself with all of these individuals who actually are pro taking away any restrictions that still exist for these big macs in terms of what they can do with the money they received and deregulate them rather than regulate them rather than reform them they're pushing for fewer rules and restrictions on these big banks rather than than for more of them and so that's a manifestation of trump there's also of course all the tax cuts for corporations including banks that that were passed by the public party under trump and there's also these trade wars which just the newest sort.
