Is, Pacific Time seven forty in the morning and ten am so a fairly condensed period of time couple you know two and a half hours boom gets bad thing about it goes from one and a half plus two plus one depict him to minus one. So through pickup, you skip the half points because there is no minus a half. Okay now. was that a coincidence could be. But it's always interesting when these announcements have been. They can do I can't lie they tend to. Be Pre Kerr. If let's say this, if you look at an announcement and it comes out big news in its information than adjusts lines, go take a look at the archive of the lines. A LOT A lot. If feels like that news was known by a few. Tends to get it right. It seems like eight out of ten times at least right in terms of the market move before the official news comes out. Yeah and it's usually move is bigger. It's not only I mean because I mean, let's be honest. The game doesn't flip favors like that on Monday all the time, right?

What it Means to be "AI Ready" - with Matthew Mattina
"This is Daniel Magellan. You're listening to the and podcast. We speak this week on the topic of. Readiness. What is it look like to truly be ready as an enterprise if you're a consultant, you're selling into enterprises and you want to build a success wave. This client stands in what might need to be worked on or if you are an AI champion within an enterprise, you want to get an understanding of where do we stand how ready are we should be an awfully helpful episode our guest. This Week is Matthew Martina who's the head of The machine learning research lab, A. R. M. A. R. Ramsey multibillion dollar semiconductor and software development company wholly owned by Softbank Softbank One of the biggest venture funds in the world based out in. Japan, and Matthew speaks to us about his criteria and his way of thinking through with Ai Readiness looks like in an enterprise again, if you WANNA a checklist to list of features away to assess take view on your own company or that of your clients. I think at this episode should be awfully helpful. If you're just getting started with deploying a, we have a free guide called beginning with Ai. It's special guy for non technical professional. So if you do not have a technical background, but you still want to understand what is it realistically look like to deploy artificial intelligence were the key factors to understand for a adoption. If you're not the person writing code, you're more focused on the business strategy side. Of things then you'll WANNA download that free pdf brief it's an e. m. e. R. J. dot com slash B e g, and then the number one. So bg like beginning and then the number one that's RJ DOT COM slash bg one that pdf should give you some extra details to layer on top of some of the insights that Matthew provides for us here today. So further ado this is Matthew mcconaughey with arm on the and business podcast So I'll kind of dive in first here on this topic of Ai Readiness and ask you about what you consider to be sort of the core components, the core aspects of Iranian s within the enterprise obviously a lot of moving parts here what comes to mind for you? Yeah. That's a good question I think. One of the core questions is one that I think people sometimes miss with respect to a I is. Now there's the problem that you're trying to solve. Of course, understanding that from the get go is key in pretty much any scientific or engineering discipline, but then with Ai. Knowing how your machine learning or a model actually going to be deployed. So what is that model gonNA run on in the field as it can run on a some kind of a big server in a cloud data center somewhere with no terabytes of memory and an of GPS and processors, or is that model ultimately going to be deployed on some kind of you know very constrained embedded device say you know in a in a o not censor or mobile phone or a car and everything in between? So think what we sometimes see is that a model will be developed by a data scientist or or. application will be developed without a good understanding deployment and where that gets prickly as you've developed this model, it uses you know. Fifty gigabytes of memory and then Lo and behold actually want to deploy it on a constrained device that has you know two hundred and fifty six kilobytes of memory, and now you need to do some surgery. Got It. So readiness here you're talking about you know not only involving the model, but involving sort of what are we going to run it on DC? This is potentially part of the four thought process for companies obviously, not everybody's GonNa have devices. Out in the field, people have security cameras, La- run things on mobile phones you know in in cars or maybe heavy industry the have it on a boat somewhere maybe other folks are just GonNa have stuff up in the cloud but for you, it sounds like maybe that thought process should happen as we're coming up with ideas not sort of after we've developed a great model idea that those have to be married to hardware sort of at the brainstorm phases kind of what you're getting at. That's exactly right as part of the upfront? Planning. Stage of enterprise preparing for a readiness. Yes. Some consideration for. What devices is this actually gonna run on and what are the key characteristics of those devices and and the interesting about it is that like I said, you can build models you know and build ai applications that you know recognize faces and use lots and lots of memory or they can have models at recognize faces and use very little memory. And making that trade off and understanding that that trade off will need to be made between accuracy and memory upfront will save people pain down
Jetpack over LA: Fact or Fiction?
"Saw reference to this on twitter yesterday too. And so people I don't know what we're David. You know we're talking about here. Breath. So there are reports from airline pilots apparently, there are reports line pilots are saying this. I don't know if I've actually heard an airline airline pilot reporting but that that while on on the approach to lax, I think yesterday. They saw quote unquote a guy in a jet pack at altitude. And it's like. It's twenty twenty innings possible. I mean just right but. What have you heard anything that makes you think this could be real. It's twenty twenty anything anything can happen. Ain't that the truth well back that they seem to have gotten. Audio from. The aircraft in. The Tower. Off. Of a presumed Pasco site. that. Would lend a little credence to the to the story. If you know from a live ATC. I didn't bother to click on the links here to to you know I'm just doing the local TV stations. This is from. The war zone actually from the drive DOT COM, they're they're section called the warzone airline pilots landing at LAX report quote a guy in a jet pack unquote flying alongside them It's like, okay This was some guy in a Moonie. Okay. Yeah. Maybe not but according to this news report there's three different airliners. We just passed a guy. No jetpack. And this was. According to according to the tower tower transmission made on the frequency. To jet, blue twenty-three use caution a person in jetpack reported three hundred yards south of the La final at about three thousand feet ten mile final. That's a little segment audio. Save so suddenly. That's so now is this a do we? I don't know what kind of jetpack. Yeah. That's my question is it a? Is it a sort of a James Bond type of jet pack or is it these more recent guys who were jet? Wing? And fought. Because that's the pictures that they've. Looked down lower in the story as an example, they're not saying this is the incident. But there showing other showing. Images, they have of. Of this is the jet man the. Jet called free also but yeah. Rossi's jet man that's that's yeah. emerets did a thing a stunt I don't WANNA call. It was a promotion. That's true. Three four years ago. Where they had this guy, the jet man fly in formation with I. Don't know if it was a three eighty or trip seven but. The image. Here is a four engine I'd say it's a three eighty. Three. Right. He's He's got about half flaps. Put Slow flight in your book right over the top of Dubai and with two of these these jetpack guys. It's hard to tell from the image. But. It looks like they're a good five well, good couple of hundred feet. Above to the left of this three eighty. Is the Radio Tower American nine, hundred and ninety seven. We just passed a guy in a jet pack and our says, American. Nine, hundred seven. Okay. Thank you. Okay well, this is like off to talk to one seventy, two Andrew. This is he he flies overhead lax more or less daily going to and from work. And I'll have to see what he knows about this sky with must have been. Like A shorts three, sixty or something he's like because he says, we just saw the guy passing bias in the jetpack. So I don't know if he could be going the other way but. The JAMPAKHAO, ran this guy whistling. That's embarrassing. Yeah. That's I mean it's gotTa. Be a turtle prop. No RJ captain in there and self respecting RJ captain would fly that slump. Well he's on he's on vinyl. Still doing. You Know Buck Forty Bucks Sixty. Okay well. But I'm sure jetpack guys go faster than one, hundred and forty. Meter not at least. Once. All right well. You know we're we're obviously interested in more evidence. Yes. Yes. We want to hear more accounts of this and I will check in with one seventy two drew just because he's plugged into that community in Long Beach a lot. So where the he may have some some behind the scenes information about what happened over the. Thing that jumps out at me here. Is that. If he's on final. For La. At three thousand feet and ten miles out. It has to be something like Rossi's jetpack because none of the other stuff go ten miles. Right, I wouldn't think that the James Bond if there is even a flying James Bond jetpack these days I, don't know and that was the only good for. Thirty seconds. And that's when I first heard and the first the first report of this I saw on twitter was accompanied by a picture of that jet pack in the Air Right and I thought I sort of thought it was an actual picture which I don't think you now in retrospect that it was but. anyways. So all right. Well I don't know whether we'll learn more about this or not. But when I first heard about this, if saw this whatever was I, thought it was one of those. Fan like a fan driven. Jet. Packs Ah. Some some people have taken to putting just like you do a drone use a lot of motors. They, they've created some some contraptions that that have motors and turn small productive propellers basically -ducted fans. And get off the ground and get off. But basically, it's like a helicopter. So it's Ok off the ground but I don't think they have the altitude duration or speed to do this well. We know that they did it very long. So it did it. They did it for three or four minutes? Three or four different arrivals. So yeah. Yeah. Three or four three different arrivals and figure they're spaced about a minute apart Hey. Okay.
Novelist Donald Ray Pollock On Factory Work And Finding Fiction Later In Life
"Today's first guest is author Donald Ray Pollock, whose novel the devil all the time has just been made into a new netflix movie premiering next Wednesday. It Stars Tom Holland and Robert Pattinson, and here's a taste in this clip. A young boy has just watched his father pulverized two guys after they made lewd comments about the father's wife, the son's mother. Afterward the father gives his son some advice. You remember what I told you. On. The buzzer gave you. That's what I mean. got. To. Sir. Good sons of bitches out there. One hundred. These that many. Cannonball. In, both the movie and the novel the characters in the devil all the time are driven to extremes whether their fathers and sons, serial killers or preachers. The story begins in the small town of knock him stiff a real place in southern Ohio where Donald Ray pollock grew up. He didn't become a writer until he put in over thirty years at the local paper mill and got sober. But. Once he did start writing. He was noticed quickly receiving both awards and critical. Acclaim. Terry, gross spoke to Donald Ray pollock in twenty eleven when the devil, all the time was first published. Donald, Ray pollock welcome to fresh air. I'd like to start with reading from your new book, the Devil, all the time It's about the second paragraph from the prologue. So would you just set it up for us? What we have here is A young boy's name is Arvin Eugene Russell and he's following behind his father Willard and there and place called knock him stiff and they're going to Willard's prayer logging as a log in the woods where he Wants to communicate with God and So this is where they are. You know early in the morning and their. have finally reached this log. Willard eased himself down on the high side of the law and motion for his son to kneel beside him in the dead soggy leaves unless he had whiskey running through his veins Willard came to the clearing every morning and evening talk to God. Arvin didn't know which was worse the drinking or the praying. As far back, as he could remember, it seemed that his father had faulted devil all the time. Arvin little with the damp pulled his Co. tighter. He wished he were still in bed even school with always miseries was better than this but it was a Saturday and there was no way to get around it. Through the mostly bare trees beyond the cross Arvin could see whisper smoke rising from a few chimneys, half a mile away four hundred or so people lived in, knock him stiff in nineteen, fifty seven nearly all of them connected by blood through one godforsaken clam or another be it lust were necessity or just plain ignorance along with the tar paper shacks and Cinder Block houses the Holler included two general stores and a Church of Christ in Christian Union and joint known throughout the township as the bullpen. Three days before he'd come home with another black I I, don't condone no fighting just for the hell of it but sometimes, you're just too easy going Willard told him that evening then boys might be bigger than you. But the next time one of them starts his stuff, I want you to finish it. Willard was standing on the porch changing out of his work clothes. He handed Arvin Brown pants stiff with dried blood and Greece. He worked in a slaughterhouse in Greenfield and that day sixteen hundred homes had been butchered a new record for RJ Carol meat-packing. Those boy didn't know yet what he wanted to do when he grew up he was pretty sure he didn't WanNa kill pigs for eleven. Let's Donald Ray pollock reading from his new novel, the Devil, all the time. You know in the reading that you did the father tells the sun that the next time. So many beats him up the sun has to fight back and that seems to be. A recurring theme like in the opening story of your collection of short stories, the collections called knock him stiff. The opening sentence reads my father showed me how to hurt a man one August night at the torch in when I was seven years old it was the only thing he was ever any good at. You certainly seem interested in the idea of a father. Kind of indoctrinating a sun on the need to fight back and then egging on to do it even when it's inappropriate. so was is this a story that played out in your life? Well, not so much in my life I. Mean as far as I don't my dad really didn't push me to fight or anything like that. But you know when I was growing up my father and I had a very Uneasy relationship. You've got to understand my dad was born in one, thousand, nine, hundred, thirty he's still alive. You know he's eighty years old and he's still kicking but He was born in. Nineteen thirty grew up in the depression I went to the eighth grade. He was working on the railroad by the time he was sixteen, and then he was in the navy. And, my dad is a very tough. Hard. man Stra very strong man. As and in contrast to that, my mother is very shy kind. Small Bone woman. and. Either fortunately or unfortunately for me, I took after my mother and I believe. When I was a kid, my dad was. Maybe disappointed for not taking after him more. So. You know that's where I guess part of that comes from it and part of it also comes from. Lived in stiff. That's where I grew up and I saw a lot of other fathers who were you know drinkers and hell raisers and they didn't treat their families very well You know maybe they went and worked for a while and. I got enough money to go on another band or whatever, and pretty much left the family to take care of themselves. So, yeah father's have a pretty rough time and my work I just. It's just. You know I'm a father. You know I have a daughter WHO's I'm thirty years old now and I have always felt that I. Wasn't. As good as I could have been. Her mother and I were divorced when she was very young she was like a year old and and I wasn't around that much and. That's probably the best explanation. I can give for why treat father's like I do my work. Were you bullied in school. You said you, you took after your mother who wouldn't hurt a fly. So and if you were bullied, would you fight back? Did you know how to actually I wasn't bullied in school I? Never really had any problems with that and yeah, I. Mean a would fight back if I had to but. That situation you know didn't come about very much probably you know just. No more than any other normal kid you know might face that sort of thing. But. Yeah. I mean I wasn't really interested in Working on cars or farm or anything like that was more of A. I won't call myself a bookworm because we really didn't have that many books but you know I like to read and watch old movies and drawl and stuff like that and My Dad. Just you know he's a very practical man I mean, even today you know his idea of success is. Owning your own farm, starting your own business or something like that and I know that he probably looks on what I'm doing now is. A pretty useless way to spend your life trying to write books. Would you describe what the town of knock him stiff was like when you were growing up well, when I was growing up there it was. You know relocated for us. Ok we'll knock him stiff. is about thirteen miles west of chillicothe Theo, which is you know southern Ohio. It was its own little place. You know there wasn't much else around there but it was a community There were three small general stores and a bar and a church, and probably four hundred, fifty, five, hundred people now I probably was related to. At least half those people. So did you find this nurturing being in a town where half the people in it were related to you or incredibly claustrophobic? I think when I was a kid when I was a kid I was claustrophobic for me. You know I was one of those kids I was always unsatisfied I always wanted to be. Else and somewhere else. And so from a very early age. You know I was thinking about escaping from the hauler. I just Thought that I'd rather be somewhere else are somewhere else. But where you are as in Chile coffee which is. PHILADELPHIA, which is about thirteen miles away like you got out but you didn't go very far. I, really didn't get out I mean that's the weird contradiction of that whole thing you know i. Wanted to escape and them what I finally got my chance or whatever I. I chose to stay I'm out at knock stiff at least once a week even today Ladder parents go to visit. My parents are still alive. You know I have a brother and two sisters and they all live fairly close to there and So I. Think though as far as escape goes what happened with me was I quit high school when I was seventeen. And I went to work in a meat packing plant much like Weller work, Dan? And then when I was eighteen I moved to Florida you know that was going to be I was going to get away that you know by moving to Florida and I was down are working a job in a nursery and I wasn't making much money or anything only been there a few months my dad called and said. Hey, I can get you a job at the paper mail if you come back up here so. I chose to come back. You know the paper Mills Calling it was union job and great benefits and. And I knew you know for a high school dropout that was probably going to be the best job I. Ever got. You had that job for. How many years did you work at the paper mill? I? was there thirty two years and you didn't start writing till you were around fifty or is that is fifth well I'm fifty six now and I started writing when I was forty five. Okay. So how come it took so long did you know? When you weren't writing did you know that you had that in you? Well. You know I'd always been a big reader as I said and I love books. And I think maybe in the back of my mind, you know always thought writing would be a great way to get by in the world and you know, of course, I was very naive about it. The principal reasons for me you know as far as being a writer were one, you were your own boss. To you could do it anywhere. And three, you made lots of money. Wasn't until actually began writing it. I found out. That was a real true. But I. Think you know Sorta like maybe a fantasy that? It was in the back of my mind for a long time. I had a problem with drinking and for a number of years and you know it was one of those fantasies that when you got half loaded and You started daydreaming or whatever it was. One of those things that you thought about right thought about. But it wasn't really. You know I went to school when I was in my thirties I went to college I went to Ohio University and I ended up with a degree in English and You. Know even while I was there though I wasn't thinking about being a writer I never took any writing workshops or anything like that. But then finally when I was forty five my dad retired from the paper mill. And there was just something about watching him retire and go home. and. You know that was you know pretty much the end of his career and it really. Bothered me and I. Just. decided. I had to try something else you know. To some other way to. Spend the rest of my life. So. When you decided, you wanted to learn how to write what did that mean? Any. Writers or anything in for a while I just sort of scribbled and struggled. And then I'd read an interview with a writer and I can't recall her name now or no it was a lady. But she talked about typing out other people's stories as a means of maybe getting closer to them or just learn how to put a story together. and. So I started doing that. Who did you type out? I typed out a lot of different stories I. I was typing out a story at least once a week and that went on for about a year and a half. So John. cheever hemingway. Flannery. O'Connor Richard. Yates Dennis Johnson the you know the list just goes on and on if it was a story that I really liked and it wasn't. Long I, type it out, and then I carry it around with me for a week and you look at over and you know jot notes on stuff like that, and then I'd throw it away and do another one. Typing a story out, just was a much better way for me to see how you know person puts dial together or you know. Moose from one scene to the next that sort of thing. Was it hard for you to find your subject matter as a writer? Well when I first started. Trying to learn how to write. As. I said like maybe I would copy out John cheever story. So then I would try to write my own story about some East Coast suburbanite having unfair. Something like that or maybe I'd write about a re Rita Andrei debut story, and then I'd write about a Catholic priest. and. So I did that for maybe two years or so and it just wasn't working at all for me. and. Then filing maybe at about two and a half years, I wrote a story that's included in the book. Knock him stiff called back teen. And it's a very short story. and. It's about these two losers sitting in a donut shop. And that was the first thing that I had. Written that I thought wasn't too bad. And so then I increasingly started focusing on you know the people that I knew about instead of nurses, lawyers, that sort of thing that I had absolutely no idea. How to write about There's a passage in your new novel that's about a bus driver and the bus drivers father had gotten a certificate from the railroad for not missing a single day of work in twenty years and bus drivers. Mother always held this up as like what you could do. If you really you know were strive and tried to accomplish something when the bus drivers father died the bus driver hope that that certificate would be buried with his father's. We didn't have to look at it anymore, but instead his mother just like. Put It on the wall, display it in the living room. And then the bus driver thinks it wore on you after a while other people's accomplishments. I love that sentence did you ever feel that way I mean he kochman here seems. So relatively small like a good attendance record and not to knock that. But for that to be like, you know the zenith of somebody's life is. You. but did you feel that way that a war on you? Other People's accomplishments? I don't think that I paid so much attention to other people's. Successes or whatever. But I, know that I was aware you know by the time. I was thirty two or so and I've been working at the mail for about fourteen years. And I knew that all the guys that I had come in with you got hired about the same time as mayor guys even much later than that. You know they own their own home. Maybe. They owned a boat and they had two or three vehicles and they were married and had kids and on and on and on. You know in contrast to them. I've been divorced twice. I'd filed bankruptcy when I got sober I was living in this little very small apartment above this garage. Of. Motel Room and I've been living there for about. Four or five years. I owned a black and white TV that my sister had given me and I had this seventy six chevy that had the whole side of smashed in and that was it. You know for fourteen years of working there. That's what I had. And so you know there was that sense I guess of me just being a failure. Wasn't really that I wasn't jealous of those people or anything like that. I, mean I had enough sense to know that you know where I ended up was my own fault. But there was always that that idea in back of my head that. I could have done more you know I could maybe went to college or something you know. I'm sure you know if I'd wanted to go to school when I was eighteen, my dad would try to help me. and. That's not the route that I chose though how has your life changed? Now as a published writer, you have a collection of short stories. You have a new novel you got a thirty five thousand dollars cash prize, the pen, Robert Bingham Award. So, what's different about your life? well, I have a lot more time to just set on the porch and. Smoke and daydream. Think it's a legitimate. Yeah well, at least that's what I tell my wife. But my life hasn't really changed that much I. Mean I get a lot more emails. Now you know that sort of thing, but you know I still live in the same house I still pretty much. You know my daily routine is. I really can't say that it's changed that much. It's a good life and I'm thrilled that you know I've got a publisher and. You know had at least a little bit of success. You know I know a lot of writers out there a lot of writers out there who are much better than I am. And would. Probably give their left arm. To be setting, you know where I'm setting today. Well Donald Ray, pollock thing you so much for talking with us. Terry I appreciate. It. Made my day. Donald Ray pollock speaking to Terry Gross in twenty eleven. The devil all the time a new movie based on his novel of the same name.
Trump to hold rallies in Nevada despite restrictions
"Trump campaign announced that the president was coming here are not only for our fundraiser for these two events one in Saturday in Reno in one on Sunday here in Las Vegas, and then the fundraiser I believe would be which somewhere in between on the president would stay overnight here in in Las Vegas but obviously the corona virus rules limit in-person gatherings to fifty people and Donald trump draws a huge crowd we've said before on this podcast, there's no denying one thing and that is donald trump will draw a huge crowd wherever he goes and so the reno-tahoe Airport Authority informed. The private lessors of the airplane hangar where trump had planned to do his Reno Rally that holding that rally would be in violation of the governor's coronavirus restrictions, and additionally that AH demonstrations encountered demonstrations would interfere with airport operations. Both of those things would be in violation of the lease, and so the the tenants of the airport hangar basically said, well, we can't this, and so we're we're going to have to cancel that in Las Vegas it's a little more murky because the party indicated today that it had worked with the owners of the serious aviation airport hangar were that rally was supposed to be held. but that they had not work with the airport and the airport said a plane on the record yesterday that they were never asked whether or not a here, a rally could be held and therefore they never said no to holding a rally because you can't deny permission for something that you were never asked for permission to do. So it's a little more murky there and that has created the impression that these things were announced. In an anticipation that they would be rejected, which would allow the party to not only attack one of its favorite targets here in Nevada Governor Steve Cecil lack who is the person who has imposed these corona virus restrictions on in person gatherings. But also to to claim in a larger sense that Democrats were trying to censor the president trying to keep his fans from seeing him and to basically create a grievance would that they knew would happen I. It was it was a foregone conclusion that they were going to be rejected for this. Now, we're told as we tape this, we're told that. The trip is still on the president is still coming and that perhaps rallies will still be held. We don't know when we don't know where we don't know what venue we don't know how big they they will be or how they will get around the corona virus restrictions because it's going to be very difficult to do whether you do it indoors outdoors wherever you do it those restrictions are really going to put a limit on how many people can attend presidential rally and so There was a repeated reference in today's call and we'll talk more about the cause where he said in a second to having two sets of rules and the rules would be that if you're the Republicans, will you have to abide by the fifty? Person Restrictions, and if you were the Democrats you don't have to do that and look no further than the black lives matter protesters, couple of things about that number one. The Black Latin black lives matter protesters are in fact, breaking the law there they are. They're going against the coronavirus restrictions. So. When they protest they're in violation of the governor's order. There's no question about that because there's more than fifty people they're not practicing social distancing some of them are not wearing masks, etcetera etcetera. A better analogy would be are the Democrats being denied permission to hold their rallies and the answer is no but only because the Democrats have not attempted to hold their rallies, they have not attempted to a whole day a big rally The way president trump has attempted to hold these to rally. So it's really not the same I don't think that there are. Two sets of rules I. think There's one set of rules. The Republicans are being frustrated because they're trying to hold these rallies and they're being told no, they can't, and then they said, well, what about the black lives matter protesters and the answer is, will they're breaking the rules absolutely breaking the rules but I it's a you know the authorities technically could cite them but look. You're GONNA site You know thousands of people were out there protesting they're also not inside the venue where the venue could be cited in the owners could be fine. The way the gels for trump a site it were cited for a in-person gathering that exceeded the fifty person
Republican Jewish Coalition official makes the Jewish case for the Republican party
"As the Republican National Convention dominated the news this week I sat down with Matt Brooks the Executive Director of the Republican Jewish coalition to hear him make the Jewish case for the Republican. Party. Just a reminder AJC is a five. Oh, one C. Three, not for profit organization that neither endorses nor opposes candidates for Elective Office Matt. Thank you so much for joining US Saffy. It's great to be with you. Thanks for having me AJC held a series of virtual programs last week at the Democratic National Convention and we're doing the same this week alongside the RNC you spoke at. An Age RNC program yesterday and you guaranteed the Donald Trump will win a larger percentage of Jewish vote in two thousand twenty than he did in two thousand sixteen. What makes you so confident of that first of all, my understanding of the politics of the Jewish community I've been doing this job for thirty years. So I think I have a very good feel for the Jewish community. But then the most important reason is to look at the record of this president There is no question that he has been without a doubt, the most pro Israel president ever in history. That's not coming just from Matt Brooks, but it's coming from people like the prime, minister of Israel has said as much in the Oval Office in meeting with them. So there's a reason why fifty six percent of the Israelis who were polled in a recent poll would like to see president trump reelected and only sixteen percent. WanNa see Joe Biden reelected because they understand that this president is absolutely transformed the US's relationship beyond that Steph. Touch on domestic issues I think people in the Jewish community are deeply concerned about what's happening in our big cities whether it's Portland Seattle New, York, the lawlessness, the rioting, the efforts by the left wing progressives in the Democratic Party who want to defend the police. I. Think People in the Jewish community understand that president trump giving his incredible track record. Pre covid is the best person to revitalize our economy postcode and also recreate and bring back all the jobs that were lost as a result of this pandemic. So I think there's a wide range. Of issues that both foreign and domestic that to me give me great confidence to have my back moment point into the stands and guarantee that this president will do better among Jewish voters and twenty twenty than he did in two thousand sixteen was the Yankee Fan I. Appreciate any reference to Babe Ruth let me just follow up on that though you pivoted and spoke about domestic issues at the end, which obviously are very important. You started out with Israel though I'm curious does the RJ see any kind of polling or anything like that indicates that the? Percentage of American Jews do vote based on. Israel. My sense is generally not at top issue for American Jews. So we do have extensive polling and we're very data driven in our messaging and how we look at the races you know, I think your point is well taken but you know elections and campaigns about mosaics. It's about putting pieces of the puzzle together. It's not just one issue. There is definitely a segment of the Jewish community that does care about Israel we're going to appeal to them. There's definitely a segment of the Jewish community that appealed issues. Like school choice we're going to appeal to them. There's definitely segments of the Jewish community the care about the issue of defunding the police and having law and order in our streets in protecting us against anti-semitism. So we're GONNA have various messages targeted to various constituencies within the Jewish community. Our community as you well know is not monolithic. So to say that there is one issue that's gonNA drive the Jewish vote would be a mistake but I think we have enough experience and expertise in this arena to make sure that we're serving up the right messages. One issue that you just mentioned Matt is is Antisemitism Joe. Biden actually laid the cornerstone of his campaign on President Trump's comments after the unite the right rally in Charlottesville in his video announcing his candidacy, and then again last week when he accepted the nomination, vice president. Biden cited the president's very fine people on both sides comment at which he saw as excusing anti Semitism he cited those comments as motivating him to get into the race to beat the president. How would you want Jewish voters to think about those comments? Well, I, mean, that's going to be part of our task and we've had several events both with Nikki Haley Mark Levin with Senator Ted Cruz just this last Sunday night you know in which we've talked about that there is a mythology that has taken hold by the Democrats to try and create a false narrative that the president Or somehow tried to give support to white nationalist. If anybody takes a step back reads the entire transcript and admittedly I wish he had been clearer and less awkward in his original remarks when we put out a statement to that effect. But if you read a few sentences before and a few sentences after very fine people on both sides, it's very clear that the president strongly condemns White Nationalist Neo Nazis, and you know it is absolutely unambiguous also to some of his other speeches in actions you go back and look right after the tree of life synagogue tragedy he gave a speech that day to the future farmers of America No. President no president go back and take a look at the record, and you'll agree if you read the opening speech, no president has ever condemned anti-semitism and planted a flag about us and our strong commitment to fight anti-semitism wherever it raises its ugly head, and then obviously you look at what the president did it on his executive order to help protect students on college campuses who have been the victims of anti-semitism and I will tell you time and time. Again, this president has by action demonstrated his commitment, not only to condemn white. Nationalist Neo. Nazis. But also to stand up and take strong stands against the rising antisemitism in this country.

Washington Redskins retire nickname and logo Monday
"So rj was announced on Monday that the Washington now formerly redskins will be retiring their nickname and their logo. They started a thorough review early in the month, and they've decided they will be moving on no statement as of yet as to what the new nickname will be for the team so sometimes our job is to have unique takes, but let's be candid. You can't have a strong take on everything, but some people force those tags. We try to avoid that I'd rather identify the story point out a couple of things that maybe aren't being discussed enough and move on. I think it's noteworthy that amongst all the political correctness type, all things have changed. This is one that doesn't feel as much like that because I can remember in the eighties. This was a discussion. And Mean whatever decisions right or wrong, but it does mean this doesn't feel is new to me and obviously there's an. Accumulation of momentum when it comes to social justice and this is falling under that. But Joan is to I. Mean I'm guessing as far as you can. Remember there were there were a certain contingent really was against that redskins.

"When people were yelling at the mayor or the now former mayor pro tem Michelle theory comments that you made and gather some signatures to recall. Both of those officials that I just mentioned are facing recalls routes. You could have gathered signatures out there. Apparently he's organizers did not do that. And and look. It's very difficult to do a recall. Even in the best times I think with less than forty five days left now. I don't think there's any chance that this recalls going forward at all. Yeah I. Mean we were talking off air about? The irony of zero meaning that even the organizer who put this together as a former poker player and everything you know He. You have to have voted in her election in order to sign this and we had looked at his records, and he had not only in the sort of the larger general elections had voted and stuff so that. Yeah, I mean it's definitely appears to be dead, mean we? We commented before that it was dead, but again I agree with you. I actually saw it on I think you yesterday sharing out chain Johnson story on that and being like I was actually very surprised, and I smashed the link button as soon as I possibly could to read about that because it was. I mean you gotTa Get One? You gotta get like five hundred I. Mean there are other efforts going on here and across the country like I sat in on a press. Call earlier this week on a number of you. The struggles that various states are going through to get something on the ballot. Basically I think six six states including Nevada are trying to get you know citizen. Committees on the ballot to redraw the boundaries for congressional legislative seats. You know we've talked about that in the past. There's an effort here. led by a group that's by the local women as seems like each state. He was actually had by the local League of women. Voters are they're? They're really big on this issue. and you know these states North Dakota whatever were saying actually we've got. Got Twenty thousand out of the twenty five thousand that we need so some of them are doing pretty good can sit all things considered, but certainly more than one more than nothing, and so some are getting thousands and thousands, but you requires quite a lot. As he said best at times, it's difficult to reach that number and then to get them all verified in the way that's required and. Then go from there. Then you actually have to actually have the the election and so so. It seemed at the time a little far fetched. It was you know we were kind of surprised? She kind of came out of nowhere and we didn't. We didn't immediately know who was behind it. And then we did, and then we were thinking Oh okay, this is kind of makes a little bit more sense, but the it it. It seems like this was not going to come together. And as we said before I would be very very surprised. Given the current climate, if any of the various recall efforts that we find ourselves ahead and here in Las Vegas and Nevada's as a whole. If any of them make it through. Absolutely, I mean the the recalled the potential recall of the Governor Governor. Steve says the lack which petition was circulated in various protests and whatnot It fell well short. It fell well short, but they did get thousands of signatures you know. It's not as if you know. The some people are saying well Maybe if they got no signatures that means everybody loves the mayor. No I. Don't think that's what it means at all. I think it's an issue of organizing and actually going and circulating, getting those petitions to circulate getting those Those signatures an end with recall it's it's a double edged sword because unlike a regular petition. You know you stand out. You want to amend the constitution to allow lottery for example that would be one example. Example you stand out in front of Vons or in front of the DMV and you ask people. Are you registered voter? Do you WANNA lottery in Nevada? You can sign our petition and you get a lot of people aren't registered voters who don't live at the address. They say they live. Who something like that? So it's a crapshoot a recall you know exactly who is registered who is eligible to sign your petition because you have the list of the people who voted in that particular election? So you know all of the? People. Who voted in the election? So you know the the exact individuals to on their door, on the other hand It's it's Operating within that small universe, you've gotTA convince people to change their mind on their vote, and to basically say yeah. You know what we were wrong about her we want to. We want to change our vote and undo the election, so it's tough. It's a tough thing and and I I don't think door to door petition. Circulating is going to work in Asia Corona virus. It just doesn't seem like it's something that people are GonNa WanNa do so so it's it's not surprising I. Think I think you're right. I think the recall against the governor. I've heard that there are going to be renewed efforts to do that. I think that's going to be tall. Order I think the recall against A council woman Michelle theory former mayor pro tem shelf oreo probably got a lot of heat behind it. There's a lot of neighbors who are upset about. The changes proposed up at Floyd lamb state park that Michelle furious. Championing to to make those changes I think they're in faith There's probably a universe of people up there. That WANNA sign it but I. It's it's a tall order, even the best times, and so I don't think any of these are really going to be successful. Definitely I agree.

Report: Multiple owners against '20 MLB season
"Day In or two days into another crucial week quote unquote in Major League Baseball for the negotiations of a twenty twenty season, and still nothing on board yet between the players and the owners. It's our belief and we talked about this in the first segment that the owners have been rolled. They've been dominated in this negotiation. And that's fine that means probably the players were in the right. That's the way it usually goes not always the way it usually goes. And finally the idea that the owners said No. We do not accept that we can make this agreement, and then you file a grievance pretty much right after for a billion dollars. That is the heart of this. My understanding it seems like shared assumptions are. If the players would say based on these terms, there's no grievance. Worthy infraction will move forward without grievances. Which is really effectively? A lawsuit is what a grievance is I think this is a done deal. Manfred would not have said what he said about his certainty on the season unless. He felt confident that based upon the terms as they were being discussed, they were going agree. When he heard reporting when baseball the owners? Heard of the players, talking to reporters and saying hey, we're going to file a billion dollar grievance as soon as we're done with signing the agreement. They said Oh. WHOA WHOA enough. We're not okay with that.

And what is RJ? Rj says. These are professionals. They got pride. Now. Here's the point of this. Phase I, think you've come around a bit towards me wherever you were before your more towards me now on that topic, absolutely the only exception my busy.

I'm going to try to demonize I'M GONNA? Make him feel worse for whatever remnants of this belief that I disagree with he still has. Or. I can say. The. Hardest Mile is at first mile to open up your mind that maybe your basic premises are wrong and the fact that you're shuffling this way. Is a heck of a statement that you're keeping an open mind, and that means that we're having a true dialogue. Let's keep it going. I gotTa Tell You when I've seen intractable people when someone's stuck in position when they take a half step away from that, there should be trumpets in the background. There should be a celebration. It's not what happens in the political system. In this country in the political debate would happens is. Everyone believes their position is God's. It's like dillon has a song with God on our side and saying we can win. You know is written in their sixties and it was like hey. We fought ww wine with God on our side. WW Two in the. Implication of the song was boy. God wasn't on any of the opponents side. And no one thinks God's on the opponent side right, and maybe it's not God. Maybe it's righteousness, the arc of justice in that rainbow over the you know you know it arcs towards justice wherever your Northstar is. Politically. You believe you're right about that. Or why would you have the position? And thus anyone who's less believer than you. Is Somehow flawed intrinsically character issue. The harshest response as you ever see politically. Are Conservatives against. Were they call? Beta concert or Cox is end are conservative, a maiden name only cover rhino you here and Republican in name Oh, and then you look on the other side and a guy like Bill Maher, who is certainly towards the laughed. When he disagrees with the Orthodoxy on the laughed all my gosh on twitter he gets. In general when one of your own isn't all the way in on everything is when people get the maddest. And that goes to show you. How how in the heck out of this group? That's on the other end of the spectrum, ever GONNA come. In your direction. Let's say you are right. Whatever the conversation is! HOW ARE THEY GONNA? Come in your direction. If the steps along the way, get more painful. Right, I mean you look at a? Let's give Ya credit. Recovery Program the twelve steps you know I I've watched them why PD Blue I've seen SIPOWICZ I've watched a lot of shows. I don't I. Haven't read books on I. Don't know deeply, but I do know there's a huge deal about that first admission that standing up insane. Here's my name. I'm an alcoholic and the idea that that's embrace that you got. To me when someone disagrees with you when they take a half step in your direction. Saleh -brate means a conversations working. And, if you're moving in a direction. And the other parties hitting you harder as you step towards them. I don't think most people keep going in that direction. And a lot of people will say well RJ I'll tell you why. We do that. Because life, itself is at stake. If this was a matter. That wasn't as important. Yeah, we could accommodate. The slope either people aren't getting into ignorant. But no life, there's been enough debt. Life's at stake. And in a way that makes you start to say But that is one hundred eighty degrees wrong. And the reason is simple. The higher the stakes. The more you gotta do whatever it takes to make progress. You. See what I'm saying. The idea of you and I are fighting over. A heads up cargo. You and Mackenzie from pregame.com. Research are playing a heads up. Card Game Thousand Bucks Ray take over a couple of weeks. You guys I mean thousand bucks its money. I mean just shrug I now. It's real money, but for you. It's no big deal and you know what makes a ton of sense. You're going to be like throwing chips. You having because what because the stakes aren't high. If you were playing for a million dollars. It'd be totally different Zachary. Because then the money would be what mattered now. It's the bragging rights matter. It's winning the debate and in a way. The politicians even true believers are usually the ones that get a lot of heat. Because Obama disappointed a lot of the laughed because the theory was, he didn't do enough. In. The point of this is this when the stakes are as high as life in debt. And it's on both sides of the abortion argument for the right is they consider to be about life and death, and obviously this debate with social justice and the police and violence, life and debt. The idea that no politician ever effective ever makes the true believers happy why because they have to compromise along the way? Why do they compromise. Because the stakes are so high. So to close on this. If you really think about it. Closure is unless. You're driving. And say! I want to think I'm at on this political discussion with. The cops. Minorities all that. And think where my at and wears an opponent of mine, it might be president. Trump might be whomever I. think of you think he's. You're nemesis in this regard. And then say. How do we bridge this distance? And what I'm sure of? Is Hating the other ones all going to help that. You might say you can't negotiate with terrorists. Okay fine except you're going to be in this like there's been. Wars has been disagreements religious disagreements. That's gone on for hundreds of years. Just go to the Middle East take a look. All right so yeah, if you want to accept, it's going to be like that forever. But if you don't want to accept that, how do you get? A might be that person coming all the way to you. That might be what you think. Okay fine even that. How does it happen? And I would I know for sure you're not going to get it all at once. And you might say well. I can't accept death. That's is not well if you have to choose between. A certain number of deaths or half as many. Do you say no take. We'll take them all. And I get it. These are tough decisions. That's why protesters don't make decisions like this. It's the people at the top. It's the elected officials. But the tanner sat by the people on the Ground Mad I. And I'm not saying care about it any less in fact, I think if you really think about it. If you care about as much as you show, you would be more careful. About creating an environment that let's progress happen. Because it's easy to demonize I. DON'T CARE which I'm not talking about either side. It's easy to demonize. It's harder to say you know Sunday. You're not just flawed. You have your perspective. You have your experience. You haven't walked in my shoes.

"Been at home now for what seems like a year. It's actually a couple months but it seems like a year But politics goes on regardless of whether or not we are at home or we're And we've got a primary election coming up. Most of your listeners probably have received your ballot in the mail If you have not received your ballot by May eighteenth that's in about four days from now of you haven't received your bow. You should call the county in you. Can you can find that number on our website. There's a There is a frequently asked questions story that day. I wrote at all. The numbers are in there. I have put that link up on twitter and I'll be putting it up on twitter again. So follow me at Steve Civilians. You'll see it there. You can get all the information you need about that. But you've got your balance so now the question is who do you vote for and were helpfully providing that information in The Review Journal. We have had a number of reporters including Roy running up a number of different stories every primary race That is on the ballot covered. Maybe not like the Milwaukee Television Improvement district or things like that but all of the other. All of the other Water district on their two. Big Races are on there. And we're going to talk about Some of those now. Now Roy did the story Regarding all three of our congressional district we have four in Nevada but the one of the second congressional district on North. We didn't write about but we did write about Cd ONE CD. Three and CD. Four rory interviewed. I six thousand candidates. Wasn't it like that Roy? I think the I think the actual number was seriously like twenty eight. Wow or something like a lot. A lot of candidates for them especially in four in Horse Ritz District. Which is a little bit surprising? I would think that people would have flooded three susie. Leaves district has that sort of looked at as the one that could be competitive. Yeah but no. It's a bunch of four and I guess that makes sense because it does cover a pretty big chunk of the center of the state goes into rural and also you know at covers North Ause Vegas in northern part of the city in and I think everybody talked to. Who's running is from at least Clark County. I don't think that there are any folks in the rules running but it no. There's some interesting ones I guess starting off with CD one. That's pretty safe. District for Dina. Titus you talk to the Republicans who were trying to challenge her and you know they're they're pretty pretty honest. What their what? Their hopes are telling me that the best thing he could hope for him it would be a dream. Come true is if he made it through the primary he'd be the Republican nominee and if the president came and did a rally he'd get to stand on stage with the president and that's it that's like that's why he's running. I mean you know. He's been told by the party flat out. We're not GONNA help. You can give you any money. So it's kind of that is he also has a Dina Titus as a few Democrats running to the left of her. That I think are trying to push a little bit more of the sort of green new deal. Fifty dollar minimum wage Bernie Sanders. Type can ev- ideas on her and you know in talking to her. I don't think how successful they're going to be because she's GonNa she's GonNa probably stroll to a massive double digit victory in both in both primary and general so I guess moving on from there. And either suzy lead the big district there to Republicans who are raising a lot of money. Ray I use the term raising. You know they're giving themselves a lot of money. Some of them as well but they're they're the two that's the most interesting race in the congressional field. I think it's one of the leaders in races in the state. Because you have Dan Schwartz. Who's the former treasurer of the state? Who you know has has his point of view he's veteran. He's got a lot going for him but you know he was one of the ones who in two thousand sixteen. He wasn't very quick to wrap his arms around trump. And now you know his opponent whose names Dan Rodman is a big trumper and marketing himself as this big trump and the other guys never-trumper so you have sort of the wings of the Republican Party and that struggle of whether or not to fully embrace the president go with him in some ways in go against them in some others. You have that playing out in Suzy's delighted about this 'cause she just watch as they basically tear each other apart on TV ads. You probably have seen. She's got democratic opponents. Though right she's got democratic opponents so does she does she live they all democratic opponents which is just strange to me. I guess it's just wild. It's just wild out here in Nevada because in California a lot of times I mean you are committing suicide if you try and primary a sitting Democrat in not state with big democratic backing than it has and stuff like that. It's just not done. You wait in line and so it ride from in central California and so it was odd to see that yes she does have some supporters. There's one There's there's a couple. Actually who are running. They're not really running to the left of their more running as Not Her essentially. There's there's some folks who were basically saying that she's bought and purchased by the Casino Industry. Of course her husband is is an executive in the casino industry. There's one His name is Dennis Sullivan. And he's a doctor. He's basically he's the one who sort of attacking her as a as a sort of a hot candidate essentially and he he also has some really interesting ideas about how the government should be establishing a pandemic program where health insurers hospitals first responders whenever they have something that even could be any remotely over infectious disease. They should filter into this one. Big System that the CDC can run anyways. He's got some like creative ideas to then. There's a there's a woman in Tiffany Watson who used to who ran for Assembly district against states prior in In the last time around and she's running. Almost as kind of like libertarian. She considers herself very very center. Very like constitutionalists she. She's very pro second amendment which is sort of odd for a Democrat in there so she's kind of an interesting case to you and then on the Republican side there there those two Dan's but there are a few other Republicans mostly like business folks who you know. They're making a go of it. It's your constitutional right to run for office. I don't I don't think they're as serious and clearly the eyes of the Republican Party of trump campaign everybody Iran The the the to Dan's and then in horse resistant you have I think fifteen or sixteen people a thousand people. I mean just an insane amount of people running including Democrats and so we'll start of with Democrats a little bit here so he has LemMe Lemme count here. One to three three Democrats believe who are running From the left. There's a couple of others who I didn't get a chance to interview. I don't know where they're at but three Democrats who were running from the left including One of the vice chairs of the Clark County Democratic Party whose name is Gabriel dear. She's very active. She's lobbyists. She does a lot veteran. And she's basically she's got an interesting set of points where she essentially says. If you look at what the Democratic Charter is for Clark County. They want Medicare for all they want a you know a lot of the more progressive things and she feels that he's not representing the district. You know in that way. He's not representing what the Party has agreed upon so she's challenging him which is an interesting one and then there are a million. Republicans running against him. A you know a gym marchant is emily. He's sort of the most funded most well known of the candidates. The you also have least song saddened news out former Miss Vada. Us WHO's very active on social media. She's young and she is the daughter of immigrants and she's got a lot of like sort of boxes checked there but you have to wonder who's from the Nye County Commission as well and so he's he's running And there's I think five or six folks who are just kind of like our business members in Saint Peter's I mentioned too. He's the one who's running very far right very far with trump. You know. Let's build a wall. Let's let's lock everybody out. And he's an air force veteran. Long Twenty Years Air Force veteran and running on the He's the one who's running basically giving red meat to everybody in terms of all protect your guns we'll keep these illegals out you know. He's that that sort of a candidate so so really really a lot to choose from just the congressional races and I just WanNa like out everybody to that if you go to our website under review journal Dot Com. We have a voter guide. We have tons of raises all the way down to school boards too city councils and everything like that the whole work done and there got twenty or so more. Probably there's thirty seven total Tilberis yeah and the and that's an important thing the the voter guide on the review. Journal's website it is it is You know we're working on it even as we take this but it'll be ready by the time this airs you enter your Your email address. You enter your home address and you select your party and it will generate a ballot for you so all of the race all the races. It'll be on your ballot where you live automatically. Come up so you can go race by race. You'll be able to see CR stories. You'll be able to go to the candidates website themselves vis. See all this stuff and be able to to make your decision. You know it's funny We also forget one qualification that he didn't mention For Lisa's song sadness she runs a business called Sin City cupcakes. And let me tell you. I have had some of the Sin City cupcakes and And they are infused with your favorite alcohol. And let me tell you I. It's it is they're good. They're good we should not I should not discount that. And the story of how. She started that businesses. Really interesting because It was just one of those things where she and a friend were talking. And you know how you often talk with your friends Most reporters you know they have this conversation. We should open a bar and these two actually did it. And they started this whole business and that's one of her businesses but the Cincinnati cupcakes. I can tell you a culinary perspective are quite quite delicious and I'm a Connoisseur so But back in the third district you know surprised in the third district because the the one thing that I was expecting when the balance started to shape up. Prior to the close of filing Dan Romer was in there. You mentioned Enron emmer former treasurer. Dan Schwartz was in their number of other people. Were in there. Some people who later dropped out some who later got in But Republicans that I talked to were. Were telling me don't would just just way. Were good is going to be a surprise. This isn't going to be the final field. We're going to have another Republican candidates going to be a a big name. A game changer. In that race were not gonNa let Suzy Lee. Just you know walkaway active Napa that didn't materialize there. They're the the this mystery candidate whomever might have been did not materialize. So now you're right. The the focus has come on Dan. Romer and Dan Schwartz likely. Because you know they're able to do the self funding This district I agree with what you said earlier. This district should be the most competitive in Nevada. It was designed to be that way and You would think from the candidates on down. You would have a some some high profile in very well-funded a challengers and And so I think now when you have this competitive primary I think a lot of people are waiting to see. Okay we'll see who comes out of it and see how they how they do. Dan Schwartz ran a statewide campaign back in a twenty eighteen in the in the Republican primary for governor..

"We have a number of local races district races on the state level. Stuff like that. Who also have sort of come into focus as we've just passed a filing deadline just as last week and so we wondered how about that. I know you had sort of a working list of some some some top races for people to look at. Oh yeah definitely we've got as you pointed out in a A story that we publish the RJ. You Know Congress is a very popular destination there. There there there there are At least a half dozen opponents for all Nevada's members of Congress Including the ones in safe seats such as Mark Amady and Dina Titus you'd think they would They would be safe from even challenges in your own party but no they are. They are definitely a getting drawing. A lot of A lot of people into that into those racist there are some lawmakers who escaped without an opponent. They're they're running unopposed. So that means they get automatically if they get a single vote in November. They're GONNA win But a couple of the races are shaping up We'll focus only on a primary right now because we've got plenty of time for the general after June. So let's just focus on the primary right now and one of the ones that I think is is fascinating is Senate district number seven Where you have to Incumbent members of the Assembly Ellen Spiegel in Richard Cutty oh Who are both Democrats? Were running but wait. There's more they are also running against a caucus endorsed Person Revert Alang. Who if that name sounds familiar to some of you was the chairwoman of the Nevada Democratic Party in the infamous twenty sixteen election where Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders Supporters You could not feel the love in the room that night because there was no love. She presided over that convention that had to have security called toward the end. Well she is now running as the caucus endorsed person in that Senate district This is the insert that David Parks is giving up only because of term limits. So you have three. Democrats all very prominent people Longtime Assembly members had a very famous neighbor. Lang running against Utah. That's going to be a really fascinating primary race to watch. Yeah in an interesting one because they really only have less than three months and we're going to have a story this week about the difficulties and even for for a lot of folks that really the lack of motivation to campaign during these times during the corona virus in aware. You know you can't knock on doors and you. Can't you know have endorsement meetings? Those are all being canceled. You can't you know have town halls you can't you know meet folks face to face your potential donors and stuff. I mean traditional. Campaigning has really been up ended in the time of crisis. And you have folks who are elected officials or who even serve their communities and other ways a lot of whom are just not campaigning. Because they they're so busy you know doing what do we what it is. Their job is to do and try to help people. Who are you know hunger here out of work I mean it? It's IT'S TRUE. It's going to be like a really unprecedented primary season two just because of the conditions but it's also a terribly important primary especially for Democrats who are looking to sort of coalesce around presidential campaign. Get somebody at the top of the ticket who can help you know people at the bottom of the ticket the way you know. The Republicans believe trump will You've got some scrappy. Republicans who are trying to random Talk a little bit about the anti black thing. That was an interesting one too. Yeah you know we always look for surprises on on on primary aisling day. The last day of filing we always look for the surprise and I think this one there really was. There really was a dirt of surprises. There wasn't very many I mean. Kevin Child the disgraced a former Clark County School district trustee of filed to run for university. Regent so that kind of a surprise But the real surprise I think was this. Assembly district nineteen primary now district nineteen covers a little bit in Las Vegas. A little bit Henderson. All the way out to mosquito. It's it's a big district geographically i. It's been represented for several sessions by Chris Edwards. Who's a WHO's a Republican in? He got a Republican Challenger in the primary at the very last minute and that is anti-black who You will probably remember from such hits as running for the chairmanship of the Republican Party against Michael McDonald Which was a tough race. Given the Michael Madonna was endorsed by somebody. You may have heard of called Donald Trump and so a that was a real surprise in. Anti-black is running against Chris Edwards from the right saying he is an insufficiently conservative Republican. Now I can tell you. I've known Chris Edwards for many years and in he is no liberal. That's for sure of but anti-black says she's better conservative than he is and in his running against him. That is GONNA be another fascinating one to watch. Because any blacks campaign against Michael McDonald while unsuccessful was a very spirited campaign. It wasn't a low profile thing. She didn't lose because she just put her name in the hat and never did anything to to to really Kinda win. She actually campaign pretty hard for that seat and and I think she's going to do the same in Assembly district. Nineteen at least. We're seeing that with these e mails of these black attack. If you will emails there long Edwards has his hands offending off that that primary challenge. Yeah it's fascinating. I think she is A. I have interviewed her before. And she is a very spirited one. I still probably always remember the quote that she gave me about. When I asked her about that endorsement that that MacDonald had I mean has it. It's pretty common knowledge that McDonald and and the president are actually friends. Like they they actually they really get along with each other. It's not just a political thing. And she and she basically told me. I remember McDonald's face when I told him this to both will stick with me forever but she told me look the president hates losers off. The president hates losers so if I win you know what's the what's the Bar. I'm not I'm not GONNA have any I'm not GONNA RUFFLE ANY PRESIDENTIAL. The president hate losers it boy. It's probably true it's probably true. Yeah I mean embraced her instantly if she won because you're right he does. Hey losers and and if somebody can't keep their own party well then that's too bad but he definitely on For Michael McDonald very very shortly. Even though as you pointed out you're absolutely right. They actually do have a real personal relationship. Like Michael McDonald has has been to the White House. He's spent time with Donald Trump. He's flown on Donald Trump's playing. I think at least the campaign plan. I don't know about Air Force One yet. If so he hasn't stolen me a pack of EMINEM's the presidential seal so I'm still waiting on that anyway. Yeah no you're absolutely right. That would've been an interesting turn of events that happened. Yeah and then the last thing we wanted to talk about something that you pointed out which was essentially that the turnover of the legislature. It stands to get a lot. I don't know I don't know how to put this less experienced. I guess is the the diplomatic way you talk about that a little bit? Yeah I like to call it the brain drain although I'm constantly criticized by by some Legislative wags who say really. Is it really a brain drain? It is it is because look when you go to Carson City and you get some experience under your belt the first session you're there. You're you're figuring out what's going on. Where the where where. Your office is where the bathroom is. You really don't know anything about legislative procedure. They quit you through a little class. A little course of orientation about how that goes. But you really still don't know much about what's going on in the legislative process and so by the time you're there you know your second session you get better Your third session. You get better. Finally when you have served as long as say for example Maggie Carlton who is a former senator. She's now the in the assembly and she's chairwoman of the ways and Means Committee. Look you couldn't get anything past Maggie Carlton if you if you wanted to. She's been there for so long. She is seen every trick But a lot of these these these folks are new and when they leave the somebody new comes in. You can't help but lose experience. We're looking at a grand total and this is. This is assuming that every incumbent gets reelected we're looking at a grand total of ninety eight years of experience will leaving legislative building thirty six years in the Senate in sixty two years In the assembly that we will that experience. We will not have a when when we come back. Now there's a couple of caveats for that and that is up in Carson City. A gentleman by the name of Pique. Ao Neo who has legislative experience running for his old seat? If he gets in he'll bring out experience there and state senator. I'm Cy Assemblywoman. Not yet a state senator. Pena Nieto is running for State Senate children ten years of experience to the Senate so perhaps it will only be as bad as eight years He gave she She gets elected to that Senate seat. But you're talking about some lawmakers David Parks has twenty two years of experience. One of the most experienced lawmakers up there Jon Hamm Brechin has twelve years Joyce woodhouse WHO's termed out both John Hammerton Joyce woodhouse termed out twelve years of experience. Each ought to them. There are some people who were only up their short time a couple of years like Marshall Washington and appointee in Greg Smith another appointee up in in sparks who only serve a short time. But you're still talking about a lot of experience that you're going to lose Which which is the consequence of term limits? We were warned when term limits past that this would happen in the permanent class of people who continually go up there I e the lobbyists Were going to have more power as a result of this brain drain that we're seeing in so I think that's probably there's something to that because those lobbyists who have been up there you offer their services and they say look. I've been up here a long time. I can help you get this. Bill passed you. Elia on this bill. And so there's a lot of wheeling and dealing goes on and that's easier with the new people than it is with the experienced people Like I said you know a Maggie. Carlton is not going to be susceptible to that kind of wheeling and dealing as much as somebody who's brand new WHO's never served in Carson city before and this legislature will very likely have to deal with the state that could certainly be in a state of crisis for all that we've talked about so far that's happening this year. That's going to take probably years to to sort of undo. So you KINDA I. It's it's really interesting if they really don't call a special session at all this year and not really as the first sort of time to take another very short because the the the periods are so short here. The time in session is so short. Here A very short quick crack at you know A budget and and various other things that you know the state's probably going to be really struggling with at that time. You're no you're absolutely right about that in. There's two things versus dealing with the with the crisis and I keep mentioning Maggie Carlton. I'm definitely a fan and I'm glad she's there because her experience and knowledge is going to be very necessary when it comes to dealing with a Start TO CLOUD OUR WAY OUT OF WHATEVER. Recession has caused by this pandemic But then also have on the other side of that. You have the issue of the redistricting. It's going to be coming up in twenty twenty one that they're going to have to deal with as well so that there's some experience is about that as well but One of the things about special sessions. You know we're always amazed they go up there in a couple of days. Have fashioned a bill to to get the raiders stadium built or to you know to to do some other very complex piece of legislation and the reason for that is we all know. They're working out these details before they go so when they go up there all they have to do is a rubber stamp. The proposal that pretty much. Everybody has been aware of an agreed to ahead of time. This time I don't think it's going to be that easy as I mentioned before. I honestly don't know what the state would do if they decided to call a special session and I know one won't be called until there is some vague inkling at least of what they're gonNa do but so far I it. It's going to be a mystery. I mean so far as I said you know we don't even understand the scope of the problem. We're calling experts. The Review Journal is reaching out to experts to say. Hey what's going on with all this and the experts now because they don't understand the scope of what the problem is and so coming up with solutions is going to be that much harder But it's not GONNA be easy. I can tell you that there will be paying felt in all sectors private sector government sector a hospitality every business. He is going to be hurting as a result of this including we should not forget these the nonprofits that do so much good work in the community win when hard times hit one of the first things people caught his charitable giving and those charitable charitable contributions. Don't come in really hurt those nonprofit sector so So it is a mass and it is gonNA take a lot to deal with that mass and so we need all the experience we can get in every government also state. Yeah it's going to be interesting to see all right well. I think that's probably enough for this week. We Are we are miles apart but we are still planning to do this thing. Every week there are still lots of news. A lot of news probably more news than even during caucus week at this point And so we'll still be here every Friday to never miss an episode of RJ politics.

"Of my colleagues as a precaution for the cove in Nineteen Pandemic Steve. Where are you right now? I am in my lovely Home Office in Henderson. Nevada partly cloudy Sky and everything is fine. I got a little dark oak. I'm good to go. Yeah I actually in my office in Summerlin looking out at the same and I have a vanilla coke and I'm ready to go. What are the odds? So we're GONNA start obviously with the unprecedented closures and actions taken here in Nevada Dudakovic. One thousand nine hundred but make sure you stick around because we're also going to get into some sort of non corona virus politics as well as they're still a presidential race that's going on and filings for state legislature for Congress for local races. And we'RE GONNA get into all that but I obviously this week especially we've seen really really unprecedented sort of action from the governor's office Gaming has essentially been shut down as we know it on. Essential businesses have been asked very strongly asked would say to close Sort of precautions being taken at grocery stores and healthcare facilities. And you know. There's they're sort of aid coming on the federal side to try and help with all these folks who are going to be out of work or sick or both But Steve I mean you've been here a lot longer than I have. I mean what is? It's been like to watch everything to happen this week. I'll tell you the first thing is that I was amazed by is that We have never seen casinos. Close legend happened after September eleven. That didn't happen in the great recession. It didn't happen during one October Shutting down casinos locking the doors is something that's unique. It's something that I personally have never seen before to be honest with you in so that I think is really jarring to a lot of longtime Las Vegas to see that happening And then CDs normally busy streets. You know a really empty He is Is is a very jarring thing for especially for people who've lived here a long time. It's just not something that happens. There's you know the strip is always there and so that that really I think is the number one thing as far as I can see this differ and you know it's particularly worry some here because I think most people who've lived here for any amount of time no how important tourism in the casinos are to the whole state. Really even if you're not in Las Vegas arena where the concentration of those businesses. Are you talk to me? You know we work on a story just really briefly about the legislature. Not yet calling a special session and you had talked about. Just how much of a big part of the state budget is tied into the taxes on gaming and we've seen our federal representatives in Congress really pushing hard to fellow members of Congress for some aid for tourism because it is it is such a big job creator and it's such a big source of income here in Nevada. Oh Yeah I mean if you look at the breakdown of the State Budget. I'm looking at a chart was prepared by the Wind Center for policy priorities right now. The General Fund for the State about the forty six point. Four of that is comprised of the state's portion of the sales tax in the gaming percentage fee. Which is a gaming tax? So that's nearly half the state budget you add in the The Modified Business Tax Aka the payroll tax Annette's fifteen point two percent of the of the state budget so that's more that's about sixty one percent of the entire budget in those things are going to be hit. Because when you close casinos you're obviously not bringing gaming revenue. Sales taxes are down a lot of those casinos have malls in answer retail facilities at bring in a lot of those Revenues your closing non essential business. You're losing sales tax out of that. And then when those businesses go to lay off people not only a drop in the in the payroll tax. But you see a concomitant increase in a demand for help on the on the unemployment insurance fund which in the recession the state had to actually borrow from the federal government in pay back with interest. Might I add alone from the federal government just to pay unemployment claims So Nevada was in a good position until this happened the wasn't but it wasn't it wasn't in dire straits it's in dire straits now. There's no question. Yeah I mean we're talking about you know the budgets and the politics have really. It's being felt just across the whole state in terms of healthcare in terms of education. I mean the schools were closed. We didn't mention that. That's seems like a a extremely unusual and obviously disparity with other states and municipalities across the across the country. Basically we're not the only one in this in this in this sort weird period of isolation. Either no we're not. We're not the only ones but I would point to a reason. There was a reason report from brookings that said and I quote among the nation's one hundred largest metro areas. Las Vegas is most exposed in other words most vulnerable to a corona virus induced recession of our closely by Orlando Florida the theme park capital of the country. And that's obviously because we have such a large concentration about a third of our an entire states jobs are in tourism and hospitality industries. And so anytime that. There is a a a nationwide recession disposal income. Goes Down War where you are essentially prohibited An discouraged from travelling. And even if you could travel. Now there's there's nowhere to travel to our casinos are shut down It's really It really shows how fragile the Nevada economy is and how Horley we have done in terms of efforts to diversify the economy. We said after nine eleven we would diversify the economy. We said after the recession. We were GONNA do that. We've made some strides some efforts to do that but it just hasn't happened and And we're very vulnerable to the to the to the economic consequences. I think more so than a lot of other states. Yeah definitely seems like it. That's something I think. Last week I did an interview with Congressman Horford. And he was he basically and then and last week. A lot of different things have happened in the last week. I mean this ings gotten a lot worse but even at that relatively early phase he was to say you know were preparing for post nine eleven like depths of the recession type measures already and it's gotten worse and and all indications are it's GonNa get even worse probably before it gets better. Yeah I agree. I think you're I think it will and end. I mean this is really an unprecedented crisis. Nevada's gone through recessions. Before did this is probably the most unprecedented thing since September eleventh when we You know Assad terrorist attack. We never thought would actually happen. This I think is the most unprecedented thing since then and there are businesses that are gonNA close in never real. Yeah I'm there's going to be economic consequences in the long term that we can't really foresee right now and and to be honest with you know we talk about having a special session. I honestly don't know lawmakers would do. Is They went to Carson city in in gavelled in a special session right now? I don't know where they would find the revenue to make up for what we've lost and a in obviously. I don't think they're gonNA do that because we don't even understand the scope of the problem right now but Win They do. That's going to be one of the key questions and I honestly don't know how that is going to be answered. I really don't know I think a lot of people are very very unsure right now. I mean even just walking around town and being at the grocery store you see all these empty shelves and everything I was talking to the Checker my local Albertson's and you know he was in New York during you know horrible the hurricanes that they had you know some years back. I can't remember what the name of the hurricane was. But you saying it wasn't like that then because we we were talking about folks just don't know when's IT GONNA end. How does it Kinda get? I think there's just so much uncertainty in you know this week. I think every day this week there's been a major announcement out of the governor's office pre I mean pretty much and so yeah I mean it's wild and it's wild to me that like politics still sort of like churning on as best as he can. I mean we still have a presidential campaign that's going on and we can talk a little bit about that you know. Some states did move back their primaries but others haven't and you know obviously on the Republican side trump's nominee. He's already got the amount of delegates needed in case that was ever in any doubt it should have been But you also see Joe Biden who I mean man. The last time we talked about the presidential race we were saying you know. Hey he might be in some trouble or oh he's he's coming back. He's now all but clinch this thing. I mean he's he is really performing well especially in those sort of S- ght-wing states that you're looking for a Democrats perform particularly well and you saw you know the Not Very seismic dropping of Tulsi Gabbard today so it really is. It's down to Biden Sanders. Sanders is essentially on a on a campaign suspension. Watch at this point. I mean there were some false reports in the last couple of days that he was dropping out he was asked about it and he's basically saying hey right now. I'm a senator. We're in a crisis. I'm not really you know talking about my campaign and everything whereas vitamin has been performing more or less like the nominee and I would say even sometimes with some of these online type chats and speeches. I'd say he's even performing like he's already won. The president's Amion they eased definitely trying to you know create some sort of contrast with you know a the response to corona virus. In what he'd be doing if he was the president right now yeah absolutely. You mentioned the our our tally of those swing states. It's about fifteen of those swing states on We were supposed to see on March seventeenth three of them. Vote but Ohio Up. Put it off. Florida and in Arizona went ahead by the one both of those so in the swing state sweepstakes which I have to say slowly Biden seven two four. I gave I gave I l Iowa to Bernie because he came in so close in the end in that contest So we're going to give him for. Biden is up seven to four in those swing states as I look at the rest of the map. we've got Pennsylvania which Biden will surely win And and Wisconsin in Georgia and then when Ohio eventually gets around to voting. We'll see what happens. There that is that is a A. I was sad that they both phone. I understood why but I was sad that it was fun because that is a critical state for Donald Trump in Joe Biden into in the November elections. So how they go is going to be a really interesting thing to see but But yeah the I mean the Garona buyers news is pushed the presidential campaign off the front pages but it's still going on and people are still paying attention to it and Joe Biden is still racking up delegates. He's about the probably in the neighborhood about eight hundred delegates shy from clinching. Nomination himself so So it seems clear at this point that he's going to be the nominee you're seeing sanders. Say something like wow. We're reassessing and that means of course we're trying to figure out how much money we have and how long we can keep this thing going and and I think the DNC is probably happy about that because they wanNA coalesce around a nominee and start to do the work of making sure that the sanders supporters don't leave. Don't go with the third party. Don't stay home on Election Day But still turn out For Joe Biden. Even though that wasn't the person that they wanted it initially. I think that that's going to be a lot of work between now on November to keep those folks in the whole. Yeah and and it is. It is truly just wild that it's only been what five six weeks Iowa and you know and New Hampshire. Where Biden was dead. I mean I've read obituary for his campaign once again not to name too many names but it's the opposite of the Pacific an edge just like it it it it is. It is truly a leg indication of sort of like you know if you have the stability if you have the money if you're able to you know squirrel away your finances well enough. He really dearly states while they matter of course they matter a ton you know those first two you know aren't necessarily the end all be all as we've talked about many many times. I wanted to get into the fact that you know. It's not just the presidential campaign..
Meet Alice: All the Resources Women and Minority Entrepreneurs Need
"Getting funding and resources as a women or minority. Entrepreneurs has always been difficult. My next guest aims to change all of that. Elizabeth Gore serves as CO founder and president of Alice which helps businesses launching grow through a network of more than one hundred thousand companies in all fifty states and across the globe. Alice is building the largest community of business owners in the country while tracking data entrance to increase owner success rate previously Elizabeth served as entrepreneurs resonant Adele Technologies Elizabeth. Welcome back to the show thank you. I'm so happy to be with you. And Wow because so many shows twelve years twelve years. People always send me. How do you have any great sponsors for your show? I said well I got to do the first five years with nobody listening and they go. No no I just want to the other part. So it's so great to have you back talk about your new venture. You're always doing such wonderful things to help entrepreneurs man well I have. We have to write the backbone of America Hell else dot com. We are so proud to serve what we call the new majority of business owners collectively women. People of Color are. Us veteran entrepreneurs visibilities. Were so proud that these are the folks who are growing businesses the fastest. And as you know more than anyone we have five hundred sixty thousand businesses launching per month right on America and our goal is to make sure that every business owner has access to capital networks and the resources they need of Alice so was with. Why is it so much more difficult for women and Minorities to get? These kinds of resources isn't just equal for everybody. Well the issue is You know we. We are now whether you're a woman or a person of color Starting businesses at such a high percentage and I think systems and networks are catching up. Frankly and you know if you look at sources of capital for example in venture. It's really an three geographies. I mean certainly in other places. But if you're not in San Francisco New York Seattle and other places it's hard to access dot and traditionally women Are Starting to build companies all over the country. or you talk about our. Us veterans they're coming back to mostly the mid West Texas alone. We've got two thousand coming on per week. So if capital not concentrating those areas we have to make sure that systems get to them and then second is is access to networks. You know Women in particular we tend to keep our RJ job or corporate job a lot longer. We generally are also have child care elder care on her plate there the way that we work at times that we work That the ability to network or or go out to happy hours or saying all. These things are are just different so We have to create systems that are more applicable to the way individuals work for now in the future. But I tell you the great news. Is that when these individuals duke it equal access to capital they tended to match or outperform their white counterparts. So this story yeah. It's it's interesting to me because you know women and minorities really start as you said. Businesses much more frequently than than people that are not part of that group and I believe they also work harder because they know this is really their chance absolutely. I mean If you WANNA see someone who works their butts off I mean had into any small business and all small business owners are working really hard but I will say that the whether it's unconscious bias or some of the hurdles. I've mentioned it does require sometimes twice the effort. I mean even in our company Were a Latino woman owned company and We closed a series a financing this year and it was just incredibly difficult and we We learned that you know. Only two percent of women are getting venture. If you'RE LATINO ITS POINT. Oh One and so you know but but I do. I am optimistic. All the way And I do believe that they're great organizations coming out our enterprise fund coming out focus on demographics their business services and that's our job to find all those and make sure that we're putting them right there on your desktop every morning to find those opportunities. So let's talk about your series A. Round because you did something very interesting that you include a first of its kind me to clause that holds investors accountable for discriminatory behavior. Talk about what that is and why it was so important to do that. Absolutely so we As we're raising our a we were pretty shocked by some of the behaviors I've investors score members whether you look at me two incidents financial mismanagement Race Orientation Issues And we were surprise Legally if an individual had that kind of behavior they still have control of a company and To us for me that that's an always go out things from a profitability Lens If you have someone who is chairman of the board and they ended up doing some kind of sexual assault financial mistreatments or whatever that is obviously that it's going to lower your profitability GonNa Affect. Your brand is going to affect trust. It's going to affect employee morale so to me. Actually the data

Is Duke Done? A Season of NCAA Basketball Surprises
"Myron. I think the last time we spoke. I was at Cameron Indoor Stadium asking You what you thought about Zion Williamson. That was the last time and now Zion's gone and things haven't been as good for college basketball since he left. Myron Medcalf is a senior college basketball reporter for ESPN. Men's college basketball has been having a pretty weird season. Can you explain to us sort of the state of things and why some of the usually omnipresent contenders your dukes your? Unc's Kentucky aren't even in the top five while it's a meeting in a year like this anybody who tells you that they know exactly what's going to happen in March. They're lying because there was no one no expert. That understands kind of what's happened so far. It's just been a wild year but I think you can look at some of the things that transpired Really at the start of the season. I think the James Wiseman suspension by the answer. Aa For twelve games after being ruled ineligible. You have a Memphis team that I think had a chance to be much better if he sticks around. Lamelo ball who if he follows the traditional track and goes to a UCLA USC that changes the spotlight on those programs as well But instead you have a lot of the blue blood teams that don't have the lottery level talent that they had a year ago. Duke is still a top ten level team but they don't have anyone close To a Zaylon you'd have a team like Gonzaga that had to lottery picks last year. They got some good players. Nothing like that so the the powerhouse teams are just really good team which has closed the gap so now a San Diego State with the Malachi Flint and against double team Malachi for three huge three by malachite lend. That's a really good team. Competing for number one see the Dayton with an ob top suddenly was one of the best teams in America. And I think it's because you just don't have the same concentration of talent we're accustomed to seeing with your Kentucky's in Dukes. Then you'RE K. Use Marin what is it like covering a season like this where there are really clear favorites and no one seems to have any idea. What's going on this year? You just don't really know who to chase like. You don't know who to say okay. That's the team to watch. Because they're really good. It just feels like a pretty fragile college basketball scene which is great for the tournament for everything. We didn't have in college basketball this year in terms of no established kind of powerhouse team. I think we're going to see the benefits of it. Come into double A. Tournament. Time when we could have one of the craziest craziest. March madness is we've ever had so. Let's talk about Duke. Quit even when dukes not great? We're still going to talk about Dick. Because it's really interesting. Myron how much struggled on Saturday they lost to Virginia Virginia wins. That look the three point line. Just couldn't connect before that game. They were ranked seventh. But I imagine they could go down even further now right. Yeah I mean this is a team that I think will will fall in the rankings. Duke has run into some teams who put on their Superman capes in the last couple of games. And that's change things you have. Nc State which made sixty one percent of its threes and that loss A week ago wake forest mixed fifty four percent of its threes. These things those teams had done before they phase Duke and Virginia really as just a team on the rise So I think duke got caught in kind of a weird gauntlet there but trae Jones has been sort of their closer whereas a year ago you could go to RJ bear. You could go to Cam Reddish you could go on. And now they're a bit more one dimensional They're much closer to what you see. Maybe in a typical season where they're right there with Louisville and Florida state and Virginia and the other teams at the top of the ACC. But they don't have a guy who's GonNa carry them to the top of the League and just help them separate. That's just not enough talent in college basketball for really any team to do that. But especially in the league like the Agency. So you're in Kansas right now in Kansas. The number one team. You were there to watch them. Play Kansas State and it was a right because these two teams Fighting literally fighting back in January Shit and now the benches inc just unnecessary. That's not good. This is Paul. This is bad this is but on Saturday night myron. They shook hands before the tip off in. Kansas came away with the victory. What did you make of the number team in their performance? Well I I'm just glad nobody fought again because that that would have been bad Glad to have that moment before the game I will say. I've never been to a regular basketball game outside of the NCAA tournament that had as much security as that game. Had I mean they were everywhere about? I'm glad there was an incident. I I think Kansas is sort of the perfect team in a year like this. Do they have a lottery pick? No but they've got this really balanced group of guys who are pretty good offensively. They've been pretty efficient team and they got two guys who win they're together. They're hard to stop. It's Dotson In Gaza Buki who when they're on the floor together. Kansas made about sixty percent of his shots inside the art. Their opponents have made about forty one percent of their shots inside the three point line. That's the story right there when those two guys are together. Kansas is certainly the best team in America. But you also look at them and go. Are they one bad night from Abu? Koa from struggling. He was hurt part of the game on Saturday against the bad Kansas state team boss feeds it in bounced past as a group. Six to shoot you back down spits travels this is the shot ultimately but he rolled his ankle. Oh this is good has approved. He is clutching his right foot so Kansas is good. But like a lot of teams there. One bad moment badge stretch away from being right there with everybody else. Well now. It seems like Kansas is going to run away with the big twelve after Baylor who was ranked number two going into the weekend got upset by. Tcu How bad was this for Baylor? It's always interesting right. Like Baylor won every game but one for like two months straight and now all of a sudden last week I think a lot of people are panicking and that happens to a team. Like Baylor which doesn't have the brand recognition of Duke or Kentucky or a Kansas. So in hard times. I think we may be overemphasized Some of their struggles. I think you obviously don't want to continue losing and losing to a team like Tcu is not good For them but this is a team that again played a tissue team that did things that they haven't done in the past made forty five percent of the threes on Saturday against Baylor. They made thirty three percent of their shots from three point. Line before that so that can be more of an anomaly. I think Baylor overall though is one of the best defensive teams in America made the best defensive team not named Kansas. So that's GONNA keep them in every game that they play well one team. That's right up there with Kansas and Baylor is Gonzaga perennial contenders They did lose to. Byu about a week ago but they're still considered favorites to win the WCTC. How good is this Gonzaga team? I think they're really really good me now like I think they're amazing. I just think this is a year where because everyone has been sort of even you get one loss and all of a sudden. Gonzaga gets the whole. You haven't played anybody. And why are you losing you know in the West Coast Conference and I think that's unfair? Byu was a really good team like Byu's go into selection Sunday with maybe a five or six seed. Maybe even better so. There's nothing wrong with losing a road game in that environment to a good team. They have the number one offense in America a flea Petra. Sav is one of the best young players Indian tire country. We would know what mark few the head coach can do. And they've got two losses all year. I think that is one of the best teams in America and I think will prove it wants double a. Tournament starts so most of the rankings have some combination of Kansas Baylor in Gonzaga in the top. Three we'll see how this weekend changes that but after that myron gets pretty interesting. I'm you've got Dayton San Diego state. Did you see that coming up before the season began out like I wish I could lie and say I did? I wish I could be that dude. It was like yeah. I called San Diego State back in October in Dayton. But I didn't I mean like ob top and a Dayton is suddenly this lottery pig. And I don't think anybody saw that Common Dayton on Friday against Davidson Mia. Think about this number. They may ninety six percent of their shots inside the three point. Line Ninety six percent like I don't care if you're playing a high school junior Varsity Team. That's really difficult to do in Dayton. Did that and not only did they do it. They've been doing it Throughout the season just really inefficient offensive team in San Diego State. A team that lost its first game about a week and a half ago. The they've been role as well in their line of people who will say San Diego State doesn't play the competition that the other top teams have faced in college basketball. That's not true. They beat the. Byu Team that just beacons Aga- they beat Creighton. Which I think is the surprise of college basketball naked win at all by thirty one points and they beat Iowa another solid team another Aa tournament team by ten points so the best teams that were thrown at San Diego State. They won those games now. They did lose the UNLV Week ago but beyond that there have been a really really good team and I think in a year like this again. You're not going to run into a team with two lottery. Picks it feels like they can make Iran as well both San Diego state ending

An Interview with RJ Houman of the Federation for American Immigration Reform
"You were just talking about immigration and the trump administration's maybe a little bit harder for you to just come over here and sponge off the government which is a good thing R. J. a Hellman almonds that ring okay if from fear is with this to chat a little bit about this and some other things to about your foreign guest workers in this kind of stuff to RJ how are you pretty good how are you I'm doing well Helman right that's it all right so you deserve this spring court ruling last week you can't sponge off the government leaves to make a little bit harder to sponsor of government good news as far as your organization's concern right absolutely administration's done a lot on many facets of the immigration debate you know legal immigration down the border everything spiking up last may we've been month after month of decline in making it harder for people to come up here and take taxpayer benefits but there are some areas where they are falling short in a critical election year right winger well again establishment lawmakers and the ministration of thistles who are beholden to business interests are about to strike yet again it's got a lot of coverage in in conservative media not on at twenty here in Washington where Mick Mulvaney president's chief of staff for giving a private speech in London and he said and I'll quote him on that we are desperate desperate for more people we are running out of fuel for the economic growth that we've had in our nation over the last four years and we need more immigrants are still topic at a time machine the twenty sixteen will president trump made his famous address in Phoenix where he laid out his immigration platform probably something that contributed to him getting elected he blasted Hillary Clinton early meeting with donors and lobbyists and he said he crafted his plan with the input of federal immigration officers through immigration experts and not those who represent workers and corporations well now you're the chief of staff who supported the establishment who once and let the legal immigration into this country you know he called for reforming the legal immigration system to serve the best interests of America and its workers now people do not want to do that yeah the economy is getting better we do have the blue collar boom but that blue collar boom is when wages increase for workers corporations and business interests do not like that the American people do it's essential if president trump wants a second term he needs to keep the blue collar wages growing at the fastest rate in years and not give immigration related handouts to employers who despite the tight labor market you gotta keep helping American workers not them all right well the let's let me play devil's advocate let's just say we got the folks who are looking to do a certain job and they literally can't find me by me what what do they do but then I mean it's one thing to say Hey we're gonna pay you more because of the tight labor market but right what if you just can't find folks to do stuff well here's the thing that you know people always like to say when people make comments like that they're only referring to low skilled manual labour not high skilled foreign workers that isn't true they're pushing for more low skilled labor as forcefully as for calling for more high skilled labor this is something that is double pronged there's a lot of people who are still on the sidelines tens of millions who have not fully entered the labor market yet the only thing to get many people off the sidelines it went benefits are increased wages are increased as well we have to keep tightening the labor market it is a good thing no we understand there are some industries you know what agriculture and things like that where can it is tough to get workers but again it would even be better to automate moved to canonization and some of those industries what rather than having an endless supply of cheap foreign labor coming in here who also rely on taxpayer benefits but again we see that that the white collar level as well you know you have stem workers people are getting fired good to replace them with H. one Z. that was going to be wrong yeah I mean look at this thing your disease having people on your train their own replacement which is you know the human being absolutely you know the lay off three hundred American tech workers and then they'll replace them all with a an Indian people on H. one B. visa or outsource those jobs and again it's at the same time out of the same other side of the mouth we're saying that American children are must grow up and go to college and use stem majors and then when they enter the labor market they're competing with cheaper foreign workers at the same time you you people calling for more armed foreign students going to our colleges and were you staple a green card to him right after they graduate again we need to tighten the labor market even more we're seeing so much economic growth right now it's it's great for our country as a whole and it's great for the president's reelection prospects but again why did he hire so many establishment people and administration officials who don't care about what got him elected all they care about is rewarding to business interests that have fueled the GOP the for decades before he got there yeah I've had this discussion back and forth with listeners in the email we talk about on the radio to when people say you know and I say look there may come a time and we may be there I don't know it's hard to tell from from the labor market when we need to when we need the import some folks but I would like to see you at that point like you talked about in the beginning there are J. when when wages go up I mean you see all of a sudden where you can go work for you know what what was normally a twelve dollar an hour job and now it's twenty dollar an hour job and going okay we're now we're seeing some of that squeeze and then we see then you can't find and buy things okay no matter what I pay I can't find anybody that people all over your example of that is is famous I mean or not all the details on this is a little bit ago there's that famous big ice raid at that chicken plant down and this is where a lot of where a lot of illegal aliens lost their jobs that company was putting banners up in that town and and doubling the pay and people were taking the line up around the block to forty on the block that stuff that will keep happening they just don't want to go down that path many either actually your permanent guest workers at the permanent legal immigration flow that they want but even the guest worker right can we see this all the time they think all the H. two B. visa seasonal employment visas when you come here and it didn't we they they have it the industry lobbied for an increase in it Congress gave the administration the authority to do that they did the increase and the visas that were part of the increase won't even all use they gave about thirty thousand the use about ten thousand less so they're out there clamoring in the streets we need more workers we need more pieces and give it to him and then they don't even use them all I mean it's just ridiculous situation we see it every year but this is crucial I mean the blue collar boom you mentioned it repeatedly in the state of the union if you want to keep it going don't fail out people who are now but yet that they have to pay American workers more so how do we do I mean if you say they're not giving away all the vases then that should you know that should be a good thing I would guess is they're not competing against American workers if they are not giving out all the visas why they're asking for more what we're asking for more than a weather asking for for two for increased eligibility and things like that me for example might be the programs called each to be a lot of people who are clamoring for more the speakers are actually from Peru seasonal employment areas for example a five week fishing season up in Alaska but you know who uses the vast majority of those visas landscapers in Texas and Florida and I know plenty of people in Texas and Florida they mow their lawns year round those aren't true seasonal jobs we we understand I mean if you're heading up to Maine and you're doing and some fishery job as well stuff like that truly is seasonal but we have some programs out there at the H. one B. H. two B. that are so white there is so much widespread abuse the administration and have done a little on the regulatory front but there's still so much to be done I mean if you want to do you any increase in good faith reform the program's first stop the abuse you can't just grant the wishes for these business interests in an election year with the hope that the line your pockets even more we're talking with our R. G. Hellman from of fear when it comes to the drug cartels and things like this we making progress on that as far as I know we're building some border wall and let me forget that I hear you and colder complains about that all the time making fun but basically what I understand is there were fences there the high traffic areas they're replacing those events as with actual barriers what I think is a good thing you gonna put him up where there's the highest traffic first and we've seen a slowdown and went out of course I can we can gripe all we want about the progress in the legal immigration from but again what the administration has done here is absolutely amazing what we saw order number that a thirteen year high last may we see decreases every single month since with zero help from Congress because Democrats love open borders they don't care who comes here and they don't want to address the crisis they've done all they can from policy changes if you look at all Walton portent yet we do need to beef up you know the existing fencing we have in some areas and I'm like and I think that is very important the ministrations done all they can they be reprogrammed money that wasn't them useless thanks if you will enter the military budget to actually defend our homeland not other countries only in the broad they've done all they can but our big fear here as well it Congress will eventually need to act in close a lot of loopholes it's really drive this crisis a future president could come in and got everything the administration done to make sure our asylum programs are to be used to make sure people just can't come up here that was a big fear filled with the border as well all they have to do rather than climbing over a wall they just have to walk into reported injuries and say Hey I claim asylum and and abuse our system and they've made great steps in to shore up the integrity of our system to make sure if we are helping people that are claiming asylum they actually deserve it they're not just coming up because they're an economic migrants well that's the thing I mean people say Williams violence or whatever and there's violence everywhere I mean you'd have people in Chicago want to go to Bel Air I'm sure because the violence but you know we just can't live there by him because there's violence and then they got to be persecuted mind standing is specifically these people sought out by their government or other factions and that's just not the case with most these folks seeking asylum now everybody in the northern triangle again it's coming up here is an economic migrant and you know I'd argue too that they put themselves up even up to more abuse you you Mexican cartels you know that are driving the cartels smugglers human traffickers drive them up and commit even more crimes and and and inflict a lot of damage upon these people are coming up again what they're doing essentially is country shopping if you were a true refugee or asylum in your wing persecution are terrible a situation in the country Europe country shopping okay when you get to Mexico you should rejoice because there's many areas there that are

So the average of the three Mana giving each one individually sure pursued Perryman is sixty four so that's what that's that's probably like a starter level right a no so I have the PF scale hear anything from seventy to eighty five starter. Her sixty seventies backup. I so good solid backup level Cohen. Justin Watson Sixty six is a solid backup level. An it's meals seventy one. I don't believe it. How many what is that? Let's get his counting stats. That seems biased. I as we'll get that when you yes. So let's talk about these. Two guys who are who are out Evans and Godwin. They're not just really loud wind or Goodwin. I think it's Godwin all right. Let me say Goodwin crack me when I'm wrong. I cracked you and your well with distinction and a difference right. You corrected me. Every time I mispronounced body and I have you ever. That's too easy ever name. How good are these two guys while there's four players wide receivers in the NFC? They're going to the pro bowl. These are two of them. Rj so so these guys are really really good and because of that. We're not really sure how good all these backups are. Abbott Goodwin Godwin. A we sure how. Oh good he is if it wasn't for Winston having because here's the thing you gotta remember when Winston this is one of the I think the ruins structural stat lines in the season. You're ever going to have because whoever looks at not yards per play and doesn't consider the riskiness of the offense is making a big mistake. And what we're seeing with Winston is when he seemingly indifferent to risk. He puts great numbers other than his turnover numbers. You know something we can talk to were blue about how good tamp is. What's the record? Five hundred they're five hundred with a quarterback it's having maybe the best season of any quarterback. What about right there most passing yards right What does it mean means you turn the ball over one extra time lose the game? Seventy seven percent of the time again spread doesn't matter me yards yet so it strikes me that Goodwin Godwin doesn't suffer for the interceptions. He gets a jump ball. Sent his way right. Yes if he catches it I'll look at his stats if he does. And it's intercepted. It's on him. It's a great point right. Hey this feels like the same thing of saying. Goon Godwin's the same as if Winston was a normal risk-taking quarterback is the same thing not adjusted for not yours Papaya. Accordingly continue agree so probably all wide receivers for Paramount has four hundred yards for Tampa Bay. So he's the one that what time is counting stats sample size. One catch for three yards. One game played. So how the heck is he a starter level. You're telling me this is there. No the numbers. Oprah's I read are correct. No I'm I'm saying the numbers are buys. I'm just saying go ahead. And the number four wide receiver pyramids three but the number four wide receivers. Scotty Miller has a hamstring issue. If he plays he's not going to be one hundred percents. So so is this is paramount's an actual wide receiver. Yeah he's there number three he's a real guy. Yeah but boy because a three to one. I don't think he'll like the cavs getting not at all. What would this line be? If the Tampa south were fine Bickham so you think there's been three point adjustment because of the US. Could this be one of those. Ten Point Adjustment Deals where I think at the end of the year. There's a couple of spots we fight for half points the whole year and that there's there's certain spots the potentially were ten points it could be and the reason being we know about Tampa. I know he wanted to advance I. I don't I want something other than what I could. Program program a learning disabled computer to say amp obey and could be Tampa. Bay cannot run the ball. So if these guys come out there and there's miscommunication indications between Winston if they suck or if they suck all of a sudden because this guy is hyman fellow only broke through once as as you know Winston's not going to change his colors here in terms of throwing the ball down the field and taking these risks and if these guys can't win the jump balls in the one on ones. This could be a an extremely ugly performance. Do you like that. I got that about five seconds got. I've moved on much like he did with the first woman. He Dude Lima comedy to.

"Rj Bowel you can get this win subscribed dream preview and straight out of Vegas here though is last this week's analysis and I think it really shows you it's about forty seconds about focusing in on where you want your exposure. I believe this is the lease discuss. Big factor the week. I know people are talking about it but I think it's gigantic. I'll give you another bat. I like the raiders in the first half usually usually when homefield under such excitement like this. It's it's at the front of the game we see it in the NBA teams down to that third game. The crowd's going crazy. But you know what can happen if football you can get. Fatigued emotionally drained for that second. Half we've already bet the raiders lane three think it's more towards three and a half now in the first half and very prescient. I don't know if it was fatigue at the end if it was emotional fatigue but raiders came out strong up sixteen to three at halftime. And just not the same team at all in the second half where they've rj they got shut out in the second half and listen. We don't it's not like wordperfect on this. We thought that the giants would be better not in the first quarter but I feel like what you can do is get exposure to. Where are you want exposure? and to me I don't want ballot check at the beginning against him beginning of the game. I don't want ballot check after halftime. I think in this spot I don't I don't mind them otherwise especially on shore week right well. I think the house is in quarter four for sure right so you WANNA go with it. I like get. We'll put it in all right now. Usually those quarter lines come out one usually Saturday day before but this case Friday I good John McKenzie next game. The final on Saturday Texans at box. I guess this game is the one o'clock start right so early start. Actually this is the earliest one eastern star. Why are we doing this game last? It put it in put in rotation order they flip the Times on us on these three games. God Darn that found how all right still though it's still taxing still Tampa Tampa plus three at home. I think there's two main concerns turns in this game. One Winstons fractured hand. Fez how you feel about it. He just threw for four fifth out but still fracture. It's just tinny Wednesay fracture though I.

"No nonsense week. Thirteen addition Russian of the NFL dream preview with a wise guy. One on one Steve RJ. Bow Four and one last week getting to straight winning weeks key baby well fifty percent and like we said we're we actually the no nonsense part is recording about forty minutes before war. The faulk show at three Vegas time. So we're going to record the first half or so of it hopefully and then right after the show the second second half. That's the kind of dedication we've got so okay. We're starting with Sunday's games and then we're we're GonNa do a quick rundown of the Thursday games but that will be a separate file. I'll put that out on my twitter at RJ. In Vegas this and we'll put that out probably late Wednesday night but thinking of it. This won't even necessarily out. Well we'll see when it's out but if you're do not follow me on twitter and you missed it. Now's the time to follow. You won't miss it again because we do call audibles now and again during the the holiday weeks again trying to maximize what we provide to you guys while keeping in mind the realities of the holidays his his twitter handle is at RJ in Vegas so Sunday rotation order. Best bets at the end packers giants right now as you have the Super contest lines right not out yet. Oh okay that's interesting. Yeah because usually we're taking Wednesday night so no we can do. Let's make some assumptions based on the market and the lines should be out. What time do they typically come out right about Four o'clock okay. So by the time we're done would actually double back if there's any discrepancy like something. We thought the assumption was so market. Right now packer. Six and a half. Yeah like like the New York giants here. It's all about Green Bay being overrated green. Bay's eight and three. They've only outscored their opponents by sixteen points and their play. Frankly has gotten worse over the last five weeks. Green Bay has been outgained by over seventy yards and probably what's seven years per game or game. Rj and what is probably the most concerning Green Bay's last loss. How bad was it against San Francisco while in yardage it looks bad? Green Bay got out gained one hundred forty one yards but if you look at in terms of a yards per play green bay got out gained by four point seven yards per play in this game. How bad is that? It is the worst performance of any. NFL team for the year. Worse than the Miami Dolphins Week One against the Baltimore Ravens. So you're saying in a given game against the forty niners would the packers gain per play. You have two point eight. What's the League average league average? Five point six so exactly have correct. Yes so you literally are saying Aaron Rodgers double check it. Aaron in Rogers yes have Aaron Rodgers gained half as many yards per snap as the average. NFL team. Yes Okay and then give me the numbers on San Francisco San Francisco seven and a half yards per play so about two yards more than an average team per play. Now I'm in inch. I'm always interested in mechanics. How did you stack rank to figure out that? That was the worst. I we knew that previous Mackenzie Assisted Sistemi with this and we knew that the previous worst result had been that week one because it had been such an absolute destruction. Remember when Miami people are talking about them tanking against Baltimore. We'll we'll people were talking about. I was talking about mistakes. Were made Mackenzie. How did you figure it out? Well I've been using doing this. Great News spreadsheet that we have so really every game in east result. So what we're saying is you mark have been working on that spreadsheet you know under my direction action done a wonderful job it was provided the FAZ in fezzes response was Mackenzie. Look something up for me and all we had to do was go to one column and soar by something like that. It's all it's all teamwork it's all the how's it work in the reverse of learned in measurably from. Aw that's there's probably some truth to that. There's probably some truth to that. But that is one of the nice features and you know. We're not sure what we're going to do with this. Because it's it's not something it's almost like it's too powerful to let everyone have you might think I'm kidding but say it really is a hot thing we got going so we're gonNA figure a way for you guys to benefit from it but at minimum some of the content your- he you. Oh here from the boys should could benefit from it. That I mean really think about it. If we use yards per play as the metric the packers were beat. The you know the worst first of any team in the NFL this year that is no worthy but if someone countered and they said well one game isn't isn't square like it's like Oh let's find all the teams at one by thirty points or more and better than the next week. So how do you balance. And I'm not saying I agree with that because I do think ah I do. I would say this the packers losing badly or a team losing badly. If if somehow you woke up from a long slumber and team was losing badly the last week they lost badly. And that's all you know about the game is the final score four and you don't even know what year it is so you can't say well. I know ballot checks good or literally some indeterminate. Future time and all you got his last week score and they're saying for your you know you go to prison if you lose in this dystopia and future and you live in the clouds if you win that three games. What are you going to do? How would you handicap that so the only date I have is one week's worth of data exactly? Wow and I have no prior history. I've been on Mars for fifty years or if one hundred fifty who knows but it could be next year but likely not say it's at least ten years in the future now one other caveat. You're told that the market's efficiency is comparable to win you. Last were awake. I write the rules are comparable in the like and so I see a team lose by thirty plus points and this is an easy answer. Isn't it. Well you're automatically going to play the teams that got beat the worst I well well yes. E- straight up the questions. How many points adjustment do I make on the power rating do have power as well? I think I guess minus five of a team lost by thirty would be off the top of my head. What if that's the only data point I had but what I'm saying is it doesn't matter because what we're saying is the market is efficient? Thus how does the market tend to react act and maybe that's another way to ask it does. The market tend to overreact or under react to a team getting blown. Oh I got to know. Yeah I would say overreact to these extreme examples so the fact that you're making an extreme example with green bay I mean I think the fact that you quantified it as you did in yours for all that that's very interesting but aren't you doing. What the market typically does and and bat meaning it's a losing thing to do typically right I'd argue I'm not because I'm what what I'm saying is although the results on the scoreboard were horrific for Green Bay. These actual stats even worse than that. Okay but do you think generally when teams get crushed on the scoreboard the stats are like you know. Oh they were even I mean I I understand. It's a spectrum in both directions. You lose by thirty some your stats are pretty bad. Yeah so you'd probably lose by a two point seven yards per play four point seven right okay so I guess I'm not sure how to ask it is. You're doing doing what everyone else does. You're doing with the squares of the square does but you're saying because the stats were bad too. It's not square. Yes yes and also the history of Green Bay has been at the stats of. Frankly been bad since week. Four this is An isolated instance in the fact that they've been winning games means maybe the stats. Don't matter as as much to them. There's some teams that can win without good stats right. Yes and there's some teams though. I think that just have gotten fortunate. Over the course of a season I think Green Bay's the case being eight and three only being plus sixteen in their point differential. How did they get their record? They they've been fortunate. But obviously I think the pythagorean winds winds in baseball where one hundred sixty two games and even NBA Makes Sense. But wouldn't you say that when you lose a game by thirty some points. It's you're going to get a skewed result right even for the season at the good point that is similar to baseball game. Once you lose by eight runs does it really matter if you lose by sixteen or by ten right. Yeah but even then it's one out of one sixty two or one out of wherever point this season you are here. It's one out of eleven right. Yeah so the first is eight games of the year. Green Bay was plus fifty two points. Now that was pretty much on pace for their record. I'd have to say not that far behind if it is last three their minus thirty six now the question is you add them up. You say that's the most games and in general I defaulted as adding them up. I agree but is this trend. Line assigned teams getting worse. Now if it is then you're then I think that might be the handicap more than how bad they looked in the one game and if it's not representative meaning You know then you take those blowouts and maybe that's the way to look at this Theorem mm-hmm with the green is. Maybe it's somehow the I fourteen points because if you win a game by ten instead of one that's a a big difference to me but if you win a game by twenty nine instead of twenty so I just wonder if the I'm not even saying I liked the packers I've been down the whole year. It just feels a little too pat a little too robotic Arctic to say. This team got really bad last game so we WANNA play against them and oh by the way their staffs were really bad to omitting some teams get badly without bats that but at that point we just dismiss it. And what are we say. All garbage points SCHERF I think what's more significant about Green Bay is has literally every week and I don't have the exact numbers in front of me but according to football outsiders Green Bay's defense is now number twenty two. Rj It sure seems to me since week three every time live check their number. It's gotten worse on a week by week. Basis and Aaron Rodgers his rating. He was in the borderline top ten earlier in the year. He's down to sixteen so it seems like Rogers goes. It was down every week and the defense goes down seemingly every week now. I think that's a fair statement Twenty two is right for the defensive rating. Right now for Watson for greenback yes the packers. This is almost hard to imagine in the last three games. They've had less than two hundred yards of total offense twice to two out of three times less than two hundred yards so speaks to the idea. And that's what I'm trying to get at what what is the truth of. These is three games. Is it a sign of some drop off that we can't necessarily identify is it. Just random is is it. The fact is team wasn't very good to start with. I don't know I don't think any of them are particularly appealing right. If you WANNA back the pack I just tend to want to understand. Stand the why. Now I can't like it and I'm almost tempted to go with Green Bay here and here's why Brad actually gave us a lot of good notes votes for this. One of them was teams that lose by twenty one or more in a road favorites the next week. Fifty five seven thirty nine so that is fifty eight and a half percent and deep decent sample size so my thinking is when do we know that Rhode favorites do well. We know favorites. Do well off a by the rationale why they do well.

"Now back to RJ Bills Dream Review next game next stop panthers jags.

Rj Now who's on the list Jacksonville Minzhu Minzhu Pittsburgh Rudolph New York giants Daniel Jones New Orleans Bridgewater and Carolina Kyle Allen and I think there's some logic here in that we're we're leaving out the jets because there was a third string guy or specifically falk is third string. They haven't played a game without a third stringer playing most snaps since darnold had missed the prom and got mono and obviously dwayne hack INS Haskins hasn't even started of the game but what I find interesting is and really your numbers on these rookie or these accidental Saddam starters has really got me thinking about how good these quarterbacks are. It got me thinking about how to assess that. Here's what I know of all the quarterbacks that we look at forty. Two of 'em Kyle Alan is number. Eleven and stash is thirteen so let's look at the various platforms Allen is eleven and Qbr twenty-two PF and number for five at the High Q.

"If I was a better we're here man. I wish I would have been awake when this thing opened it three and a half in town in three because Oh my goodness did it drop fast. I like Minnesota Soda here as well. They should have won that second game Green Bay. They got off to that terrible start. It was all Viking second half. The Green Bay didn't score in the second half and Minnesota Minnesota was driving the football it will if kirk cousins doesn't throw that ridiculous interception off his back foot. Minnesota probably wins in Green Bay as well so of Kirk cousins isn't kirk cousins correct but what I do like here's I think that Chicago bears defense is built to rush the passer and in this case you know they may be running right past Alvin Cook. They're not necessarily built to stop the run who is in the NFL anymore. Your defense is built around. You know your secondary in your pass rush but all of a sudden you know a team like Minnesota can nullify. I actually like the Vikings in this spot myself which of the line beyond this because that has lasted miss on the radio. He was backed in a corner goes. We'll pick them. No I think like Chicago one Chicago cargo one and a half and the lines to down to two now but that's what the problem is this was three and a half now and so anyone who looked at it at three and a half when Oh my God vikings three and a half and now you don't suddenly like the bears because it dropped a half. There's some disappointment that you lost the number one and a half to two it was is two and a half even when we started the show in now it's already well. It's two two and a half to pin. It's half an hour. I guess what I'm saying is the values go. I could see not wanting to play the bears. I can't imagine the valley at this you can tease the Vikings. Get that advantage teaser to update lava nerves the problem. RJ RJ. I need something to tease it with and I'm struggling to find something. I like what you mean by struggling. There's no other advantage teasers that you can just do blonde. No there isn't advantage teaser the saints against the cowboys and I actually going to make a case why I really don't WanNa tease the saints now that we're going to be interesting so I mean it's not why don't you host the next the next notch so so. RJ GONNA eat some nuts and I'm GONNA go ahead and host the JACKSONVILLE DENVER NUTS DENVER currently laying minus three lay a dollar twenty five you know I wonder this line was three has gone up a little bit. There's an uncertainty about is Jalen Ramsey. GonNa play for Jacksonville Jacksonville so early in the week illness. Now we hear about a hamstring tightness or maybe it's a lower back. The bottom lines it appears Jalen Allan Ramsay who wants to be traded might be looking to call in sick for this game and it's not clear whether he's GonNa play on since he's worth about a half point of the line the movement the betting marketplace might indicate that betters feel. He's not gonNA play in this game. That would explain this line. Move Up to three and a half you know frankly. I don't have a lot on this game. I know no the Denver's Owen three desperate for a win so I think it's a good spot for the broncos but I do have Jacksonville a half point better in my power ratings. I've been impressed with Gordon Minzhu who came in out of Washington State and my biggest question about Gordon Minzhu while we just didn't seem to be throwing the ball down the field in weeks one and two. He answered that question last week when he was throwing the ball downfield despite an often driving rain. I was very impressed by what men she did. Last week I like all the Washington State quarterbacks and how they throw the football and how they're so accustomed coming out of that offense at getting the ball out quickly that they rarely get sacked that avoid strip sack fumbles isn't these type HYPOC offenses in the big twelve back in the day with Leach that always had failed quarterbacks that seemed I'm talking to Washington State Leach quarterback but leach was part of the whole taxes tack Scher and Big Twelve Revolution with the you know the air raid and all that what I'm saying is historically those quarterbacks of underperformed and obviously you got Baker Mayfield we can question. I was doing this year but it feels like there's been a change in that. Maybe the NFL offensive offensive become more like them so that's what matters is. How a quarterback and do that. That is a dream music. I appreciate that one but I think think we can do that because the NFL has if the NFL that's changed not necessarily these quarterbacks at the offense is now are catering to these quarterbacks but matty amongst the ones ah the faster paced offenses the spread principles you like the League offense for NFL quarterbacks at Washington state especially yeah our and you know one of the interesting things again you look at these injury. Ports Miles Jack officially listed as questionable that could cussin' was last game that he had I believe so no one plays the next game really with a concussion so expect that their best linebacker miles jack will probably be missing this game okay interesting. I gotTA wonder it's to me. It's all motivation has denver given up flacco looks horrible always getting heat but he's always so in a way maybe maybe he's not and he matters and then. Minhsiu name me other than Tom. Brady who has been quarterback that succeed in the NFL since two thousand ten modern era. Let's that was drafted in the sixth extra fifth round sixth round or undrafted I mean marlins probably had the best season ever for an undrafted player her. He's on the bench. Brady is a other than thrown Radi Yeah. I'm glad you said that I said other than Tom. Brady to start. That's why I'm glad mattis. No I think he he was being sarcastic. Guy So I'm saying is that doesn't mean he can't have some good as Marlins had a heck of a year. I'm saying is in general if we don't believe he's actually a good quarterback. We're kind of hoping that the floor doesn't fall out this game 'cause good at at some point. History tells us right yes but you do like stash rise. Oh I love that stash. It's looking better every week. You know what's interesting. He's he talked I go to Arizona and how fast they play and how it wears teams down but they haven't won a game here. We have just the opposite. Denver the slowest pace of play play in the entire. NFL and they haven't won a game and maybe that's why they have zero sacks. I mean think about that Chubb. How can you be have such a good edge rushers and have no sack are as possible and then you brought in vic and a defensive minded coach. Remember what was the line. It was ah it was it was in Oakland. The raiders were what Savon and plus seven against number three and a half three now but still what would the line. Bt so that was saying six points batter. Denver what Yep that's right now. I've got the teams two and a half apart on neutral so you still got Denver High. I got people where you got. I've heard people talking. Denver like twenty nine thirty. We sure damage better than Washington. Oh Yeah I know you are because you're you're looking at your ratings and reading them like a monkey would get it. You'd think that I'm so blown away in twenty nine teen that any offense can operate great that slowly their pace of play is we're going to see by the end of the year. You'RE GONNA see Denver. Totals against bad teams like thirty three again because their offense offenses so slow the amount of plays they run per game is is just amazingly low and my lead to push the button on that oh I kinda hard to. I guess I'll give one offer will denver have one line below thirty four and a half. Will you both take that. Let me see their schedule. Yes all right. Let me see real. I shoulda held back. I am not a negotiator so that probably means they. Don't play the jets or Miami. Oh he doesn't know got excited like a monkey with a banana. What do you think he looks well yeah. I got him a ranked. We know that I part. I'm out all right. No Miami no jets next next game cowboys Saints Cowboys on the road favored by two and a half moving towards three fast so we talked about should it'd be teasing the saints in this game the basic strategy to and after eight and a half let me make the case for why I'm not GonNa Tease. The saints even though I have no opinion on this game and if I have no opinion frankly I'm typically look into just blindly ts to update NAFF. I think this is a very high variance game. Y Teddy Bridgewater. I am not sure how good a quarterback teddy bridgewater is but I believe that he isn't very good and we look at his last three starts. None of his stats are even at average in terms of yards per attempt but his very last start teddy actually last three regular seasons third is three regular season starts so we're going back years here right Aziz one start this year the week seventeen o last year yeah Yep. We had one yeah the other. Here's the third start in that. Three last has three starts talking about when he came up against the rams. Yes I know you said last. Three star SPA all screwed up. I was trying to get my head when the Lao remember in I'm not saying this matters as much but his yards per attempt bridge one of the preseason this year were horrible yeah. So how many starts does he have a saints. I'm not saying that it matters to that's right ever yes yeah so bridgewater was played a workmanlike game against Seattle but Seattle gave up defensive touchdown special teams touchdown had double digit leads throughout the game and so he could be very careful with the ball and because of that. I don't think we learned very much so here's a game against the cowboys where he absolutely might be put what into position confused. If if the game was very competitive that's not like having a big lead in. You're saying even in a competitive game. He gets to be carrying. It wasn't competitive. Seattle was getting blown out. Most of the game Seattle got to fourth quarter late touchdowns to cut those lead to six saints at a big lead throughout the game. They were whip and they were getting scores. All all kinds of different way a punt return touchdown a fumble return touchdown. That game is crazy. I agree with what you're saying. You have the different conclusion. It shows you that Sean Payton understands he can't have. I think either Dow ten. I'm not sure if he doesn't accept the loss to some. I'm degree because they won last week. Instead Breaking Bridgewater's confidence I. I don't think there's any scenario he puts bridgewater horrible spot. You know what makes me nervous about. It is look you know what finally happened last week. Take up the ball to Alvin Kamara whole bunch and boy did he look good almost one hundred yards receiving out of backfield to go along with however many rushing yards he had. I thought that was a real positive. 'cause the one problem. I've seen a drew brees. A little bit in that offense is Kinda up up and down. The last eighteen games is he tries to force the ball to Michael Thomas all the time now Michael Thomas Micheal Thomas Micheal Thomas why not Alvin Kamara is a great playmaker and I thought that Teddy did a good job against him. The football could be a blessing in disguise because Kamara is a guy that you want ought to have a space absolutely Kamar is a beast and obviously better catching the ball than running the ball yeah so really comes down to if we all think bridgewater waters limited probably more so than the consensus opinion why not bet the cowboys because the cowboys are public team. That's three and eight up against the spread so I mean you're saying. We can't batum because they win. All the time meaning. What I'm saying is if all were ever going to do is pat or vague or pass past the cowboys that feels duct tape shoe to me all right. I mean there's hugh in duct tape. I mean I got the cowboys is one of my five this week as I'm saying as you guys are so robotic with his style Baotou robotic. Let me ask you a question the Saint St Al West they were in the state of Washington all week long. Do you think that that's I think it's a disadvantage in this game coming home after being away for a week except where's our history on that meaning if the theory is see it's funny how you you act like like if you're gone for a day and a half you have to have special like just three times the kid you gotta take by the wife a necklace and somehow oh a back rub. These are men. They're coming in saying hey I was gone for. I'm on the road all the time half the days of the month and my wife probably. I mean if you don't have to buy necklace nothing. I don't have to call specials every me as much when I get home yeah manages. The House while I'm gone on feeds the pets I'm coming back from the Super Bowl. I'm desperate. We're going to be late for a flight. I'm desperately like like buying like souvenirs for my wife from Atlanta. Wow I mean the mets it I mean what can you really say when he takes his masculine my right on with hundreds of thousands of listeners you just gotTa say okay. I respect his honesty and I don't think it's about being went and I think it's well maybe his case it is but but I think in reality steer point people get accustomed to travel. My wife is is accustomed to the athletes would be of course I agree. They are travel means as less than it ever has. In the history of of sports betting the GOUMAS might be mad but I kind of goes against your whole theory what's Goumas. I don't know either..

"I think it's a good bashed offense in certain spots a really a good defense and the cowboys might be better than them and what I know is Tampa Bay. I don't think they're giving up on Bruce. Errands earns already thus I that lost last week the chip shot the delay game stuff if it does anything it motivates them this week and when his Winston problematic and and this is actually Sunday my on his bat everyone I or two people I trust to watch the game said Tampa was so scared of Winston Winston thrown an interception late that they got conservative in a way that even led to the field goal that it wasn't just that got stopped and say they won't call normal. NFL plays in that spot figuring hey we can make his fuel goal. Winston throws reception at anytime who knows but if you're plus ten and that's the market at least you can. It's very reasonable line to get there's some nine and a half out there not in half of the contest which is tough. That's why my second best of the week is a bonus. One is Tampa 'cause winston and Tampa's limitations. Don't really mean much a-plus Tan. They mean a lot tighter games thoughts. Yeah I like it. Rj Jay one more reason to like Tampa. Let me talk about Mike Evans. He's one of those guys those five guys. It's worth one and a half to the point spread non quarterbacks. It's six now. You forgot you. I added I oh I did you gotTA. Keep up with the FAZ. McEnroe says it's been up for him. Since five emmys pay more the cowboy boots cowboy hat wash around. I didn't mean to do that. One Guy who lost my train of thought Oh yes Mike Evans so so my terrible game week one only two catches twenty twenty eight yards and he had a really bad in illness so he had a case. I don't know if it was a stomach. Flu Or what it was but Awadhi the sharps were fading him the big time. In that game they got word of that and then he had to come back and play on Thursday right after the Sunday and he was on the injury report is still being ill. He played he didn't have a good game then as twelve for catches sixty one yards while he's back a catches one hundred ninety week three so we're always looking for minimal edges here with what we're doing but there's a little concerns about. Mike Evans Production the first two weeks I think it was because of that early season illness or it could be winston or it could be thoughts Mattie Tampa yeah I mean I I've been. I've been pretty heavy on Tampa all year so I'm not going to jump off the bandwagon now I think maybe we missed the boat. It's mostly nine. I I just look. I mean certainly not I mean I I've tried to say they've been disappearing literally as we since we started the show that's a good sign. That is a good I mean I. I guess we want to get the ten on I mean. There's still some out there. That are a little tougher to get but yeah. I definitely don't WanNa lay with the rams. I'm not as down as Goff. Is Everybody Buddy though I actually thought that his accuracy looked okay that his arm looks okay oh his arms. Li All in loves them I to me calling looks at every. He played like there's still a prospect. How tall is I some point. It's gotta be how you do on the field right and Gov is certainly done. You know more than okay. Hey and they're McVeigh knows more than we do and he signed him. But what was the alt right. That's the question a you. Don't no one comes on the market these as quarterbacks do they know my cousins did yeah no. I was just trying to you know emphasized that my opinion on this game was more pro Tampa than negative ramps up next phases in we're gonNA hear our girl blossom.

"I'm I'm just thinking and week three so here's a team that the sharps are are making strong statement you just repeating yourself but what's the significance. I'm saying well. chargers had the worst injury injury report the first few weeks so part of the reason you're betting against them was they had one of the word and the market tends to undervalue that at the end yes. We've talked about the charts. Forget the charges for second and again I again. This is a longer topic but what I'm saying is this. Is this upset. You said you're playing the wrong game. This closing line value is the wrong game and anyone out there on twitter that has a problem with that we disagree okay and the NFL in a lot on gaming anything the here's what I mean the game is to win now. If you say that closing line value is tantamount to winning. It's the same thing and I question that I think in other sports the correlation between it and winning is very different but let let me give you an example. Let's say that you had inside information because your brother was on a team. Let's just keep it real simple and the rumor breaks out that a key he player on this back college. Basketball team is out line plummets because they're baton his info. That's not public yeah. You know he's playing and you. You know that he's one hundred percent that whatever the story was is just not true what do you do. You Bet what you know. Now what the not what everyone else is bad exactly so to me if we're going to assume that in every case in every game that the kids know more than you than you shouldn't be banning professionally okay and in a weird way it's the same thing is with the bookies meaning. You don't have to disagree with the sharps every game but maybe it's. It's one out of five you do the and I'm not even saying you have to bat it. 'CAUSE it's like why bad if you can pass why bet but the idea that they're right every time yeah they're right more time to. They're not let your point in its lesson. NFL But I can tell you without using any names that the most famous better in history that are famous for bedding at our firm back then that they're win percentage in college football would consistently be five eight percent every year and in an NFL it would all eight percent Roi R. Y. Okay so united fifty seven percent fifty eight fifty nine crazy percentages it is so just to be clear then so my one of fifty two point three eight being your break exact hour talking about them. Hitting fifty seven point three eight to win five percent okay and that's not the classic. Roi So is would be double so if you're hitting fifty seven point two you need fifty two point four times is to the five percents to ten percent early yes so but I I knew we were just using yet words. Okay I have no doubt about it. Here's the NFL that same better in with with just as much information betting just as much it'd be win or lose okay and now here's the Question Syndicate sometimes disagree right all the time in NFL I or in other other sports last but they do in other sports less okay. The question is if one syndicates hit and fifty seven percent the other syndicates hitting fifty seven percent and they disagree. Hey would you do right if you're one of their syndicates. You say that other syndicate does well most of the time time I wouldn't WanNa bet against him but I have a strong opinion in this game and now are you going to what I would pass because I'm a low volume guy by other syndicates are going to be. I don't care we. We know we hit fifty. Seven percent were cherry picker as what I'm saying is you're not you're trying and it's not even so so much. I want you fading the syndicates though after the line move in NFL especially I like it. It's more I don't want you playing the game of trying to beat the the closing line. Yeah is not the same as winning. I I agree with that then. Why do you have Sasso I shouldn't and a great example. We talked about this week to remember the rams were hosting the saints and the money was coming in on the saints from two and a half down to two and even one F. and you're like this is ludicrous. This they're betting the silly revenge spot for the saints Ain't and it's and you made the case for why it was the rams that would be motivated but someone else could easily say hey when you win fifty seven percent you lose forty three. Rj Happened Avoca and maybe so but here's what I know that when you have a strong NFL opinion it shouldn't be about anything except getting money on that opinion now. If you believe that the line moves going to go with you and that makes you WANNA bet earlier. I think execution Russian. This stuff is great but it feels like you guys think it's almost like the people who get mad at trump won and they go well the popular vote she won. It's like okay. That's like winning yardage. Battle and football like this is literally. You can say it's wrong and the popular vote should be well then it should get changed arranged. You believe that and go work at it right but right now. The game is electoral votes when the election the president and trump had the most of those the game aim is getting. Your tickets cashed now for those who want to think I'm saying something crazy. Let me be super clear. We'll move on. I think there's a strong wrong correlation between closing line value and winning strong strong in fact. I don't think you can actually win without winning closing line value. I think though you're not here's the key your natural inclination is the game any system. They give you say a that. The Way to get paid here is gum ball's coming out of a Gumbo machine. You'RE GONNA sit and put your mind to it and find a way to pay off the guy who refills it and he's going to give you a bag of them right but maybe that. Gumbo and allergy is passing through the little slot plot. The whole work comes out. That's what mattered but you just thought it was gum balls. Will you try to game. It and it didn't get you what you want in general you should feel good. If the line moves to your advantage you should feel bad if it doesn't for execution it's vital to know when to bat but oftentimes. I hear you talking about a way that's completely abstracted from who had the rights or with the handicap is and it seems like ultimately it's got now now. If you'RE GONNA be a fall or if you're going to be esteemed chase or maybe a savvy second move play the second number guy I'm not saying. There's not profitable guys that do that but that's not what you're doing all right. You're trying to pick winner. You do that to non when you're picking winners. It's not about that. It's about the right side which is often correlate or is correlated the closing line value but not in the abstract way you make it. That's a great point certain teams. We even referenced that we just say. Oh here. Come the SHARPS bet none bend against New England and again and and that can be wrong. I mean you know this'll be a longer pot. I guess let me ask you this because you might help. Make what I'm trying to say. More Claire or clear is give me an example where you think you've thought about closing line value no way that really is too far extracted from the windy any alternately the winning and losing. Can you think of an example yeah like they'll be a Monday night game and they'll be a public team and I'll lay eight because I know the spreads going to go up right and then the spread goes up. All Times are now created even the spread. Oh look at me. I got two points the best of it instead of Oh. This is just Duncan stuff. They're just firing at the lights of the better now if you can if if you can double back and in arbit- great right and maybe half the time you can have the time. You've got fifty two percent or so. That's not so bad either but you're not on the right side early right. It would tell you when about it meaning. If you like the dog you wait so and you bring up one last point. I'll make this quick. Manny was explained to us the sharpness of the various Cindy or different sports the syndicates in the sports and by all accounts. I agree gree meaning. I don't disagree with a word saying for my you know less knowledgeable place when it comes to that kind of action but all line moves are not driven by the sharps right so if there's a public line move we just talked about the Sunday night game which was an accumulation of police and teasers. Were you on the sharp side. I mean it was obviously obviously some of it was Brown's right meaning anti browns because of the injuries and some of it was like you were saying is they the threshold move the line was lowered by the folks because they didn't want any more rams ashtray but would you sit there and jerk off to your closing line value says no but you would write well the the the in that game zo much public money that was pouring in when you were little charts. We see the cappers that don't seem to win. The House House are they're closing line. Value does have a little Asterik near that one that one needs a big astor's but have you seen it. Have you seen the Astra's or whatever now and so all. I'm saying is this. If you WANNA major how good a capper is closing lying. Value is probably the best way meaning. If you have a way to do that where you truly can do it. It's it's great very insightful no doubt but you're not trying to figure if someone else is a winner. You're your China win. Yes and I think about ten percent of the time. You're thinking about closing line value instead of winning. That's a mistake. That's a great. Let me finish on this. If if you told me I can have a data sample. Five hundred what's more important closing line value or an actual win loss record. I think I want closing line value at five hundred and five but's. It's getting getting close at five thousand Gimme. The real win loss record over any closing line value. I've always looked at six. Hundred is a key kind of ninety five percent. How confident often it's again that might be an old wives tale or whatever I haven't done the math on that I agree with you though and and and literally ten seconds we're not saying it's not important. We're saying it's treated as Gospel in a way that I think is incorrect. Okay the the charges have been bad against so what is it. When do we execute on this then because the public would be on the charges you would think now for the hill over the suber contests I. I think that the the dolphins are such the clearcut right side of my is you execute now. You take the fifteen and a half. You're saying the public is going to bat charges. You don't care the sharps are going to cause. NFL is the one sport where the sharps prevail or I'm sorry we're this where the public monies bigger to the degree that if the sharp sharp one side heavy in the public the other it's going to move a little bit like a tug of war towards the public side right in theory. Yes okay and it depends so if it's the first of its Thursday night game a lot of times actually no but again the Thursday game be bigger for the public. You would think so but I'm telling you. It's not the case the accumulators the amount you can't. I can't even begin to explain to you how many parleys and teasers are placed on the NFL NFL compared to other sports so doesn't that say Mattie the fact that the books don't have the data to understand if it's three legs in and there's only to laugh. There's is a big exposure is just a matter of you think there's complications that are insurmountable to calculate or do you think no one's done multiple systems used by bookmakers occurs and there's a lot of different things go into it first of all they don't have the best algorithms to figure it out second of all they're using multiple systems for paper parlay some for their APP some for their are over the counter tracking system. They don't always begin back in reporting together the best but the new companies that are starting from scratch with the white late the real professional white label able type stuff. It's better. It's still not perfect but they're getting better. Okay all right anything else on your game..

"I listened but time from the Las Vegas Review Journal this is. RJ politics thrilled the be back in Nevada. How Long Nevada governor for all the data. I have more energy she then a pack of wolves is enormously. Hello My name is Rory appleton politics reporter for the Las Vegas Review Journal and I'm Steve Sibelius politics and government editor for the future welcome to RJ politics our weekly podcast discussing local state and national politics this week we have a far-reaching reaching conversation with New Jersey Senator and Democratic presidential candidate Cory Booker. We'll also discuss a breaking development out of the trump White House and the Nevada. GOP's decision to endorse the President without a caucus and later today. We'll have a special bonus episode to discuss the Third Democratic presidential debate which took place on Thursday night leading leading off we have reviewed journal. White House correspondent Debra Saunders here to tell us about President Trump's decision to fire national security adviser John Bolton Deborah Alexa Loo against the place to start here would be to say that this was long rumored right. This was not something that took anybody by surprise. There was rumors that trump trump and Bolton had tensions for quite a while. That's right in fact. It's sort of amazing that trump even higher John Bolton because John Bolton is a hawkish Republican who was very supportive of the Iraq war to today when trump is talking about Bolton. He was criticizing him for his support in the Iraq war which made you wonder when trump picked him. Why did he pick this guy. Is You know trump really wants to end. Endless wars wants to get. US troops out of them in yeah he chose to be his top national security. Guy Somebody Risk Jerry in favor of the Iraq war. That's you know that is a great question. Why did he hire Bolton. I mean his views were known at the time was it was it just because Bolton projected strength and trump is well known to appreciate that kind of equality in one of his advisors. Yeah I mean I I mean for what trump needed somebody right he he let Michael Flynn is first national security advisor. It was gone very quickly and trump. HR McMaster to follow trump never liked hr V. Master and and so when he gets rid of him he also asked to make the choice rather quickly so he sees a Bolton on Fox News and he likes what he sees and he's sometime. He's not the best person person choosing hires I think I think that's a safe thing to say given the turnover in this administration so deborah in terms of White House operations there are there are those news white houses that want to have dissenting views and I recall reading about Richard Nixon's White House where he had some advisers who were there specifically to to attack the policies the ideas that were being proposed just so he would have both sides could make a fully informed decision that does not seem to be the the way that the trump. White House is running. Is it well yeah. That's that's the controversy because on the one hand a lot of people feel that trump gets revolt holden somebody he disagrees with but trump also hired built in somebody disagrees with any was aware of phones decisions I think that there was more of a personality clash lashed between them. That Bolton was the kind of guy that trump would consider to be a spoiled. There are things that Bolton said that re- that at times undercut cut trump like when he talked about using the Qaddafi model for ten John on and those are the sorts of things that really bothered trump so it's one thing for them to have disagreements Minson private but there were times when the disagreements would rather public and I think trump felt that they undermined what happened remembers followed right dafter there was supposed to be a peace talk at Camp David with a Taliban we know built in oppose that and I think it may be that trump felt outfit not only did both the Pos at but that Bolton was GonNa make sure that people knew what almost happened in and so he missiles undercut in that way as well yeah and and trump of course you know announcing that may have been a preemptive thing with Bolton but that was just the tip of the iceberg because I mean the on North Korea Bolton was not there when trump took that historic step into North Korea the first president ever set foot in North Korea he he was a dissident on a number of Trolley Ah yes on his way to Mongolia literally on his way to go and so he was a dissident dissident on on a lot of would donald trump would consider his major foreign policy initiatives. I think the only exception might be Israel that's that's. That's a really that's a great example and the there was a lot of tension between the two and patchy lasted. What seventeen months is pretty amazing now. Here's the problem trump will be the first president to have had four national security advisers and it in this short in his first term in the short amount of time and not and it's going to be hard for him to find somebody. Perhaps maybe not I mean there are times when people who'd want to work for president who's undercut you this this way but there have been a lot of good pixel. Come after people say that but it means that you don't get the kind of continuity that you want in your foreign policy shop off with Bolton's departure. You're probably going to see other people's you know mid level people leaving an essay and so you you get this kind of churn. Were you just don't have to to -bility that you want in your foreign policy shop and I know that trump had words of praise for former secretary of State Condoleeza Rice when she made her appearance recently. I don't think that that was the beginning of an entreaty to have her come back to government service but do you have any idea who he mites a select for the next national security adviser number five will call Well Rick Grenell. Who is the ambassadors embassador. Germany is someone who is high on my list. I he's very good that combative style that trump likes. He gets along very well with trump. He's he is by the way which is another prudential. If you will for trump to to show people the top names Brian Hook who's been part of the foreign policy team since the days of Rex Tillerson and he's moved up another name another another namely Harris Teeter big and he was the guy who stanford professor who helped work out this summit is annoying and then another name that I've seen is a O'Brien in who Americans were held hostage negotiator and he went to Sweden for ace APP Rocky interesting interesting notwithstanding Bolton's departure trump's instinct seems to have been. I want to end the war in Afghanistan. I want to bring troops home. This is something I ran on Do you see any possibility that that might come to fruition with the new national security advisor in the in the remaining time left and trump term kissed. I think in the end the troubles about what happened after Barack Doc Obama pulled. US troops over walk and and not want to go all the way I think tied with the discriminate with Bolton I understand it is it wasn't that trump. Trump wants to withdraw five thousand or so to the fourteen thousand. US troops in Afghanistan. I still don't get why trump just didn't do it. Instead he decides he wants to have had these negotiations with the Taliban who I wouldn't consider it to be really trustworthy and they're likely to do things that would make people regret having to deal with them. Whereas perhaps I think bolts arguing. Okay take them out but just let them know. We can be back at any time so I. I don't send you're gonNA find a a lot of people saying. Let's get everybody out. It's it's just the the sort of chaos it could follow is is. Is there something very few people. I want to say yeah absolutely will Debra Saunders. Thank you very much for your reporting and for bringing your insights to RJ politics for having me getting into stateside politics. Let's talk a little bit about the Nevada. GOP's decision to formally endorse the President and cancel. It's February caucus. Steve is a lot to say on this one one yeah. This was something that our previous guests. Debra Saunders broke a back in early August and that was the passage of a resolution that that will allow the Republican Central Committee to vote on whether or not to endorse the president for renomination. If there's an incumbent president president at which of course there is regardless of any challenges that he may have and of course Donald Trump has a number of challengers who are in the race who are more getting in there every day it seems like but no no one serious and so the Republican Party passed that resolution and with the support of the Central Committee and so that vote didn't happen the endorsement actually hasn't happened it will happen in the future but they now have the ability to do that and Nevada's not alone. There's a few other states that have taken that step as well and it did get a lot of attention on twitter. There are a lot of people who tweeted to me when I put the story out about that are stories written by Dr Carson City Bureau reporter Bill Denser when I put his story out. a lot of people said well. There goes democracy. It's the end of of a of the voice of the people all of that sort of thing which I found interesting because look the central committee is elected by the party members solarge. They debated this issue amongst themselves. They voted on the issue so this was the result of a democratic process but I can also see see the the viewpoints of people who may not appreciate president trump wanting to say no. I'd rather have John Casick if he gets into the race. I'd rather vote for mark. Sanford furred were bill weld or someone else who's running for president in the Republican primary. I just don't think it's right to just say Donald. Trump can have it simply because he's he's the incumbent and he's the most likely to win. So there's a lot of division. I think on that point yeah you know and it's interesting to what you're talking about. In terms of like you know it was a representative process. Just like anything else and you know the people sort of complaining about well. You know I wanNA participate in the presidential election and things like that. It's really no different I mean the public or the popular vote doesn't decide the President Anyway Reno ultimately re- We'd be in a completely different world if it did and so you know all the system up and down is all about liking representative who can speak for you and so if you have a problem with this as a Republican you know it's your job to sort of pick pick different members for that Central Committee which is you're absolutely right to run yourself right exactly and and remember the you know a lot of people forget what the caucus it this. This isn't like a primary..

"Now back to RJ bell 's dream preview. Are we looking at any individual player props on Yokich? I'm only seeing and I've looked around. I I I don't have twenty eight outs like you fez, but I'm not seeing individual points. I'm seeing the points, rebounds, assists, prop, forty five forty five up from forty three and a half game one. But you know, when you score thirty seven, and I actually kinda liked that points rebounds on the SIS. Because like I said, he's the type of player that they could easily see Portland saying, you know, we can't let him score, you know, close to forty again, but he'll be perfectly contented distributing to his teammates. So I could certainly see him having a triple double game and getting over the forty five again, that's the star this podcast, so far I'm merely. Brad powers filling in for RJ bell out sick this week. I if you guys in case you're wondering little bit of a dry show compared to the sound bites and the drops and whatnot. Those will be back actually with RJ bell. It's we're just hitting it hard here. As far as the analysis goes. Storytime and whatnot any closing thoughts on this series. Fez, I think that we gotta talk about the home dominance that. Basically, we talked about Denver was the best team in the NBA at home thirty four and seven straight up. Now, they're four and one straight up in the play offs Denver only one half their games on the road actually had a losing record and Portland much of the same regular season, Portland. Thirty two and nine straight up twenty one and twenty away during the regular season in the playoffs. Portland. Three no straight up at home one and two away. So I think it'd be very difficult for you to talk me into backing either one of these teams whenever they go on the road. And I would always look to lean probably towards the home team. Yeah. And looking at it, I mean and also Portland at least the last five years and not been good as far as on the road in the playoffs right now to and eighteen in their last twenty games Portland's one of those sneaky teams that I always talk about the altitude teams. I don't like in the playoffs Utah and Denver because they get that big monster advantage. Dj during the regular season. So they always have these Godley homecourt edges.
