"I mean, just everything that this administration is doing is acting as a magnet in the draw, and I am curious to see if Mr Kelly, um, is going to support The Biden administration's position on all these things, and it would be a hell of a campaign issue. If anyone were to run against him in 2022. Republicans have. Yeah, I I understand. You've been floating that idea around their congressman. Oh, yeah. Yeah, I am kicking the tires. That's correct. I'm looking at it because You know, Like I say, I just immigration's number one issue for Republicans in Arizona. It's a big issue for rollers. And, you know, in fact, the whole country and and, uh, how about the second Amendment? I mean, he belongs to the group that wants to take away your guns more than any other group in the country, and, you know All of these things supporting Bernie Sanders, who's really against low taxes and less regulation, so I'm not sure that he's the best fit for zone. I'm not sure I'm not sure I am either, but I'm testing it to see how viable I am. Well, I love to hear that. That's good. Did you gotta get and that? Of course that was a special election so the election will be coming right around the corner. I believe it or not, it's it's election season again represent Andy Biggs. We're gonna leave it there. But thank you for that, actually real fast, and I'm stretching it here, your impression of President Trump's speech and then the whole CPAC conference they're about. I keep hearing that. We're so divided as a movement and as a party. What was your takeaway? The energy was phenomenal. Ah, President Trump is the leader of the party still and his policies are still popular with The vast majority of Republicans. There's a small there's maybe 12 or 13, Republicans said. Don't like those policies, but the math, vast majority like those policies, and I think the vast majority of Americans in this center right country love those policies. That President Trump always iterated and fought for represent Andy Biggs of Arizona, flirting with the Senate run. Possibly should be a lot of fun talking to you. If that were to happen as well, Thanks for joining us today, Always good to talk with you. Thanks very appreciated. It is 5 16. Let's get straight ahead, Rodriguez and the hip deep.
The Senate Considers Covid-19 Relief This Week
"Senate considers covert relief this week. That's right accounts is the first big legislation of joe biden's presidency. It passed the house this weekend although with no republican support. We have no time to waste if we act now decisively quickly emboli we can finally get ahead of this virus. Democrats want it signed before the latest round unemployment benefits expires in two weeks so now moves to the senate under procedure that would allow it to pass their if necessary with zero republican votes but that procedure does not allow passage of the entire bill which is a higher minimum. Wage is out of it. Npr white house correspondent. Isha roscoe joins us this morning. Hey good morning good morning. What happened to the minimum wage increase. So the bill has been labeled as a budget bill And the reason why democrats went with that is so that they don't need sixty votes to get it passed And so they don't have to worry about a filibuster But the senate parliamentarian says. The minimum wage doesn't count as part of a budget bill. A biden did say. He was disappointed at the parliamentarians ruling. But the white house signalled that it didn't want to go against that ruling of vermont. Vermont senator bernie. Sanders had proposed imposing tax penalties on big companies. That don't raise their minimum wage but our colleague. Susan davis is reporting that senate democrats are abandoning that effort after facing some resistance a stripping out that fifteen dollars minimum wage may actually make the rescue package easier to pass. Given how slim the majority is because some more conservative. Democrats have voiced opposition to that level of hike in the minimum wage of course up progressive democrats have said that raising the minimum wage should be a top priority and that arcane senate rules should not stand in the way okay in any case they are going to stand in the way but the rest of the measure is there one point nine trillion dollars in aid to americans help with covert. How important is this to the president. It's totally an important. Be has really centered. His whole first one hundred days around it. The white house has been pushing hard to get something done What they're stressing that even though it doesn't have republican support in congress polling has found it to be very popular including among republicans. You know biden celebrated the house passage on sunday and urged the senate to act quickly saying if we act quickly and boldly we can finally get ahead of this virus. There is a deadline extended. Federal unemployment benefits expire mid march and senate democrats have pledged to get this done before that so they have two weeks
Fresh update on "sanders" discussed on Pat Thurston
"Sanders justification was essentially that you don't hold one party responsible for another party's criminal acts. So that you know you make a hammer. If somebody uses the hammer to kill somebody, you don't hold them hammer manufacturer responsible. He actually used that as an example. However, in 2016, and even prior to that, Bernie Sanders had indicated a desire to repeal that law. He thought that it was inappropriate. And it wasn't a full shield of manufacturers liability, But it was enough of a shield that it gave them a great deal of comfort and unjust stopped them from having to face a lot lawsuits that have been brought against them. On, so it was very beneficial to gun manufacturers for a period of time, and it still is today, apparently as of 2016. He called for a full repeal of that law. And that was in January by.
Teachers union resists parents’ push to reopen Los Angeles schools
"He's the president of California Policy Center, Celeste feeler. Parent union, overseeing this billboard calling for the zoom blackout. What is the biggest complaint or reason that the unions and teachers are giving Not to go back to the classroom, especially in light of the fact that we can get vaccines to every teacher in the L. A school district if we wanted, probably within a week. Is Sean. I want to point out that the vaccine when it was, you know, six months ago, before the vaccine looked like it would even be finished this year, when the only person really saying that it could happen was Donald Trump. The teachers union wasn't talking about vaccines. They were talking about a panoply of Bernie Sanders kinds of issues that would that would have to be satisfied before they go back to school. They weren't talking about vaccine. We're talking about the funding the police, they were talking about direct welfare payments to the undocumented, well packed the millionaire attacks universal basic income. Universal health care is a Bernie Sanders agenda, they said would be necessary before they would go back. What does that have to do with reading, writing, math and learning? What does any of that have to do with school? It's nothing purposes for the union is a distraction as the lessons that it really has nothing to do with it, But it's a distraction from the failure of the union to the liver education. In the best of times, the union has failed to deliver education deported in California. If you're rich, you can opt out and go to a private school. If you're middle class or schools are probably at least moderately. OK, if you're poor in California, you're getting the government cheese of education. It is Among the worst education systems in the country. Thank God for Mississippi. So what a lot of people don't understand. Is that the U. S. That is that is such a cheap shot against Mississippi. You live in the United Socialist State of California. Seriously where you know, people in California. Now, instead of saying, Hey, dude are saying Hey, comrade, go ahead. Not intended to the cheap shot who are friends of Mississippi just intended to say that the only thing keeping us from being number 51 in the country is the state of Mississippi. So when we do live in a socialist state, where the union's earn about a billion dollars per year, Shawn one billion with a B in union dues, and they spend that electing people I'm getting all this school boards, but we got the vaccine. Celeste. I'll let you answer that you have the vaccine. So what is there? Why the mysterious reluctance and resistance, Although Fauci said this week and blew me away, I'm not sure if even vaccinated grand parents can see their kids. I'm like what? Yes, but Maxine, then So, all right, so out, 30, you know, I way don't get it either. Um, you know, so, yes, You're right. The vaccine is there. They're actually pushed before other essential workers that have been working the entire time. So they're delaying this. It's like Is it about computers? That political? Uh you know, we just don't know. I mean, they have the opportunity to get their vaccine. We pushed them to the front of the line. Well, exactly, So they're the front of the line. They think I'm asking so they don't give a good reason for not wanting to go back in the classroom. There is no good reason is that we're concluding here. Right. There is no reason that our kids should not be in the classroom. I tend to agree with both of you. All right now, if the parents want to participate, I guess this just means that they just don't tune into the zoom classes
Fresh update on "sanders" discussed on Balance of Power
"Television and radio. I'm David Westin for Bloomberg. First word news. We go now to Mark Crumpton, David. Thank you. President Biden will announce what's being called an historic partnership in the fight against the coronavirus mark will help make Johnson and Johnson's new single shot vaccine.

Senate Democrats move immediately to "Plan B" on minimum wage
"Yesterday we told you That the parliamentarian head ruled that the dollar minimum wage does not pass muster for reconciliation and must be taken out of a covid relief. Bill now We clarified unlike most of the media. That the parliamentary and actually has no power whatsoever It is just give an advisory opinion is not an actual ruling. The person who does the ruling is actually the presiding chair of the senate was normally is the vice president so comma. Harris is going to have a huge part in this conversation now wants the parliamentarian gave her so called ruling. All the democrats immediately gave up on fifteen dollars minimum wage as things stand now they are going to be taking that provision is going to be taken out of the bill and we will not get fifteen dollar minimum wage for at least four years now. There is a way to prevent it. There are four steps here. I'm going to walk through all four steps and you will see that if we do this. It's actually very doable. To keep it in the bill and to actually win on this issue but it requires courage from progressives and then Requires us to put public pressure on some of our allies and then eventually to the biden administration and sure so step one is unfortunately right now the most important step and where we're going to have to call out bernie sanders bernie sanders. Is the chair of the budget committee. The chair of the budget committee the signs. What is in the kobe. Relief bill bernie sanders. Current plan is to take fifteen dollars minimum wage out of the covid relief. Bill that is a terrible idea. He should not do that. If corporate democrats are going to vote against let them vote against it but doing it on their behalf. i cannot overstate. What a bad idea that is in that scenario that right now is what is going to happen unless we change it together bernie would kill the fifteen dollar minimum wage on behalf of joe manchin and joe by. He should not do that. So that's this is step one. I'm going to get to the other steps in a second guys. I need you to immediately participate. We've got a campaign we've got a partition and and we've got hashtags. We must do all of the above and the campaign is called. Don't kill it bernie because yes step one indisputably. It is a matter of fact. Is that the budget chair decides if it goes in the bill that is bernie sanders. That was the whole point of him being budget share. If he's going to take out. Fifteen dollar minimum wage will take out every provision the joe manchin and joe biden are opposed to that means we will get no progressive priorities past none. The fifteen dollars. Minimum wage was literally the bare minimum. It was the first ask of progressives so bernie. You've got to keep it in the bill because if he does not keep it in the bill. It's over that hashtag fight for fifteen. There is no more fight. That means progressive surrender. I'm being honest with you. Guys our job is to do the news. Those are the facts of how this process works so go to the petition. All right and here. Let's put it up for you guys and it's simply called. Don't kill it bernie. And what is saying is we don. T have a clear message. Don't take it out of the bill. It's one hundred percent your call on whether you keep it in the bill or take it out of the bill. Do not do that because if you take it out of the bill and you kill it then we will not be able to get back to it for four long years and there's no reason for it so and and if you're tweeting about this at all please use hashtag. Don't kill it bernie. Because we must get senator sanders to turn around. There are no other steps if he takes it out of the bill now if he keeps it in the bill now let me walk you through how we could actually win on this step two would be since it's in the bill. The presiding officer of the senate would have to rule to take it out of the bill. So kamala harris who in her role as the vp would normally be the presiding officer. The senate would have to actively vote with republicans or side with republicans the and the parliamentarian for what it's worth again. The parliamentarian has no vote. No power just gave a rando opinion on what they think they should do it. The republicans would never care about it. It it has no force of law at all. in fact it's being used as an excuse by kamla harris show schumer and the others to kill a provision. They were never in favor of so. Then we have to put pressure on comma harris to not side with mitch mcconnell. Can we do that. Yes yes we can definitely do that. If chuck schumer wants to protect com la- harris and he puts another senator in as the presiding officer. Will they will put pressure on chuck schumer. Would you like to continue to be the senator from new york. There are a lot of progressives in new york very very strong. Progressives in new york that could easily take that seat not easily but that could certainly have a shot at taking that seat. So now here's the most part steps three if she decides to take it out of the bill. There's nothing we can do about it comma harrison show schumer will then actively be saying okay. We killed the fifteen dollar minimum wage because we never wanted in the first place but if we get past that step and go. You win you win. We're keeping it in the bill. Then mitch. Mcconnell would object. Mitch mcconnell would then say. I want to appeal the ruling of the chair. Now here's a great news. Since joe manchin a cinema cap the filibuster and so two joe biden. They would need sixty votes to overrule the chair. So that means they need to break our filibuster to overrule the ruling of the chair. They're not gonna get sixty votes. We win okay. There is a separate more but understand before we go to step four step. Four is awesome but right now you understand how simple it is with. Depression brought to keep it in the bill. We have to pressure mention not mansion comma harris and chuck schumer to not side with republicans. Why god is a progressive movement. If we can't do that what can we do. Do we have any power or don't we have any power. Were about to find out. And then step for is if the republicans cannot break the filibuster. The mcconnell has one last option and this is wonderfully ironic. He would have to ask for fifty vote margin and straight up and down. Vote to kill the filibuster in regards to the votes of the presiding chair of the senate now mansion cinema have said that and biden said that the filibuster is the most precious thing in the world to them. So what are they going to. Now turn around just to make sure you don't get higher wages and they're gonna vote to kill the filibuster in this regard. I mean you would be the most spectacularly hypocritical thing they have ever done and they've done some pretty hypocritical fix so you put them in an near impossible situation and it is incredibly doable but step one is do not surrender. Guys one last thing before we go to john and jordan. There's ninety two billion dollars online. This would be a pay raise for about thirty million americans and to the tune of ninety two billion dollars every single year the reason why biden mansion and the republicans don't want to do it is because the chamber of commerce is dead set against it they are those business interests are giant donors to both the republican party and the democratic party. And those donors are saying. I wanna keep the ninety two billion dollars. I want to give it to my workers. I want to keep their wages incredibly low now go do my bidding. And they do now. Bernie is not in that camp. But he's getting pressure from the other democrats to take it out of the bill. We in a sense have to back them up by saying bernie. We do not agree. We do not agree. Don't kill it bernie. Don't kill it

Just capterra women out on sunday and that was ryan saunders. Final quarter as head. Coach of the minnesota timberwolves took over for his late father. Flip saunders in twenty nineteen thirty four year old had a string of injuries to deal with and played many many close games and the timber wolves already have saunders replacement chris finch who was a raptors assistant coach. This season has been given a multi year deal by the minnesota timberwolves to coach them full time. It's a rare move to pluck an assistant from another team. Mid season to take over job just doesn't happen very often. Usually the team that fires a head coach just moves their assistant over for a while at the very least when the full job search can be done until the full job search can be done in the off season but they had been looking at chris finch for a long time in fact he interviewed in twenty nineteen when ryan saunders was eventually given the job and finch like his good friend raptors head coach. Nick nurse coached abroad for a longtime uk. Germany and belgium then moved to the g. league and then was assistant in the nba for a decade.

Coronavirus Vaccine Q&A: Variants, Side Effects, And More
"You're listening to shortwave from npr. As more and more of the covid nineteen vaccines. Roll out. Here at npr. We've been getting a lot of questions from y'all questions like if i'm vaccinated. Can i still pass the virus to somebody else. What are the side effects of vaccines. How soon until we vaccinated enough people to return to normal so today on the show we have answers as part of a special segment. I just did on another. Npr podcast called. It's been a minute with sam sanders. Yes i am in the hot seat for this one. Y'all if you haven't checked that show out do it. It consistently makes me thank laugh. Cry it is so so good. I'm eddie. And you're listening to shortwave daily science. Podcast from npr. My dear friend who had a how are you. Welcome back to the show. I'm doing well sam. How are you buddy. I'm good. I feel like the last time we had yuan seems like forever ago but i think my biggest question with crow virus. Yes whether i could still pet other people's dogs. Oh that's interesting. That's an interesting version of that story because it was about whether or not you could kiss them on. The mouth is however members over the past few weeks. We have asked you our listeners. To send in your questions about the vaccine all right if folks were able to get the vaccine. Can they still carry and transmit corona virus to other people. So let's start off with what we know for sure right. We know that the vaccines that are authorized in the us. Do an excellent job of preventing symptoms of covid including those really scary severe symptoms. And let's just say the moment here on the show to acknowledge how monumental that is. I mean that means fewer cases that result in hospitalizations given our healthcare workers break that means less people dying every day. I mean that in itself is huge. And that's what the vaccines were designed and tested to do so. As far as whether or not vaccinated person could have the virus in their bodies. Pass it to somebody else. Even if they don't get sick there is some early. And i mean like really early data. That looks promising Some that shows that vaccinated people are less likely to have the virus in their body at all or they carry less virus. So that's all very good news but we still don't have enough data to say for sure that the vaccine cuts down on transmission or by. How much so for now we just kind of have to wait which means that vaccinated folks should still mask up. When they're interacting with people outside their household especially if those people earned vaccinated if we know that the vaccine will protect you from getting severe symptoms. Most likely is it safe for two people who are fully vaccinated to hug or like hang out in the same room. Yeah okay so. Here's what i will say about this. Because we don't know for sure if vaccinated people can carry the virus those vaccinated people just need to think about who else they are interacting with right. So if you're living at home with somebody who has severely immuno-compromised is in vaccinated. You would treat the situation differently than if you live by yourself right but if you are to vaccinated people. Maybe even wearing masks for. That added layer of risk reduction. I think you've reduced risk enough. You know to hug it out especially if you were to people that don't have like close contact with other people. I am a big proponent of risk reduction that still allows us to have some of our humanity right and requested. You know to vaccinated hugging. I would argue is one of those situations. People will argue with me. But i would say so. You know there are so many headlines it seems like every day there's a new variant of the corona virus who knows where they're coming from. How effective is the vaccine against other and newer variants of corona virus. So this is a great question. Great question other stumper. I wish your listeners. With throw me a couple of corona. So what i would say is. This is another situation where things are developing right. We didn't know about these variants like a month or two ago but there are some data that suggests that the vaccine might not work as well for a few of those variants. At this point you know most of the experts that we're talking to say they will still work right. That's the beauty of having vaccines that super super effective that even if they don't work as well against one variant they will still provide protection In fact public health officials are saying that the best way to prevent these variants from really taking off in the us is by having as many people vaccinated as possible so for now with the variants that we're seeing in the us. It looks like the vaccines will work. Well on most of them and still provide some protection on the others which is good news. All right As more and more people in my circles get the vaccine. I'm starting to hear them. Talk to me about side effects and a few folks. I know said i was fine. Second dose. I was like knocked out for a day. Or what in. General are the side effects of the vaccine. Yeah this is a great question. I'm really glad we're talking about side effects. Because i think it's important to talk about them and be transparent so all vaccines can cause side effects right. And that's because vaccines worked by kick-starting your immune system similar to what would happen with a natural infection so if you do get side effects like you get a little bit of swelling from the shot or you get a mild fever is just your immune system doing what we want it to do now. Rarely vaccines do more serious reactions like allergic reactions for example. So it's really important to talk about allergies with your doctor before getting the vaccine or you know if you get the shot and swelling gets worse after a day or if your other symptoms are getting more severe lasting more than a few days you should call the doctor but the overwhelming majority of the time sam for the two vaccines that are authorized for use in the us. The most common symptoms are pain at site of injection swelling As well as fevers chills aches feeling tired and and some people experience very little of those symptoms and some feel pretty uncomfortable. Like you said for a few days especially after that second shot because that first shot your immune system's like oh. Hey what's up what's up what's going on in that second job was like oh you like now. You're trying to see so so that is really your immune system really being kicked in action. So like you said. I've heard of people that need to take the day off after that second shot. Here's the thing. Sam those types of side effects. Go away right and you know. It doesn't always go away after a few days. Kobe right you know what i mean. So i think it's important to be transparent about vaccine side effects but also to remind people like for the overwhelming majority. This is not even close to being as bad as a bad case of covert all right next question for you. Let's say you're grandparent has been vaccinated But you a younger person have not. Can you still see them And is this scenario. A little bit safer for the more vulnerable person. Okay so this is. This is a good one Because it's all about assessing levels of risk. And like i said you know risk is not an all or nothing scenario and there's a lot to work through to make these types of decisions so let's walk through this example so you've decided you really really want to see your grandparents right. Your grandparents has been vaccinated. So you've cut the risk of them getting that bad case of covid down quite a bit. And that's big right before going. I would probably try to quarantine for a while myself Especially if they are in a nursing home. Because i don't wanna bring cove into that facility. Because i'm not just an interact with my grandparents. You know if they're in their own house maybe that's a different story. So that's all like before the visit. And then on the day of the visit one thing i would leave your audience with is when you're seeing anybody like the thing to think about is how do i cut down on the amount of air i am sharing with people right. That's the big if you can carry that one thing in your head. That's the biggest thing because most transmission happens in close contact through the air not through necessarily like groceries or stuff like that so that's important to keep in mind so if i'm going over to my grandmother's and she makes me call her that sam by the way the full grandmother she demands respect. You will not be called. Grandma i would be. I would be wearing a well fitted mask like we talked about. If i could and this is a huge one i would try to take it outside if i could if not i would want to get fresh air circulating in the room because fresh air circulation is one of the best things you can do if you have to be indoors and then the last thing to think about his time right. It's not just proximity. It's also time. So i'd make the visit pretty short too. I mean the cdc suggests less than fifteen minutes if you're indoors but that's variable so it's just about keeping that visit a short as you can and then after the visit like i said same thing is going in. I'd probably quarantine for a bit just to make sure if i got it. You know somehow from being out. And about i don't spread it. Gotcha gotcha We are seeing millions of americans getting the vaccine which sounds good and feels good. But when do we know that were there. Like what percentage of the population needs to be vaccinated before you can have her immunity. Yeah so okay. This is unsurprisingly. Another complicated one so apple over here over what. i'll take it. I i mean it's not my first choice but it's not my last okay. Okay so if you're not familiar with this term herd immunity happens after people have been infected or vaccinated instill. There's essentially nowhere for the virus to go. There's not enough susceptible. People left for corona virus Tune fact so there aren't those like massive outbreaks but there isn't one straightforward number to reach herd immunity a changes based on a lot of things the biggest one probably is the germ itself so for this corona virus. Some public health officials if thrown around that like seventy to eighty five percent of people would need to be vaccinated or infected to. Have you know the level of immunity that we would need and and the difficulty knowing the answer to your question sam like. When do we reach. That number is that we don't actually even know how many people have gotten the corona virus. You know realistically. There's a lot of infections that we don't catch for multiple reasons. There's a lot of people that have a symptomatic infections. That kind of stuff so that complicates we also don't know how long immunity lasts so for some diseases. You get once in your protected for years or your lifetime and that's probably not what's going to happen with this one really got those variants on the scene. You've heard of those variants. Those could play a role here too. So there's a scenario in which this first round the vaccine that folks get first two rounds they'll have to be more vaccine shots down the road. I mean there's the potential for that it would be kind of like a booster situation. Perhaps we don't really know yet right now. It looks like our vaccines are working. Really well but i know that there are some vaccine companies that are looking into developing more vaccines. That would you know basically be kind of a booster situation. So i think you know san we ask like when can we reach her immunity when things go back to normal you know i would argue and people would argue with a gun That herd immunity might not be a reality for this virus like some people might know. It's not it's not that bad. Some places might achieve something close to it but this is a global pandemic right like viruses travel with people who travel so real herd immunity. You know global herd immunity would be tough to achieve. And so you know. I think we have to learn how to live with this virus to be realistic. You know the coronavirus will probably be around to some degree for a long time. And so i think focusing on what we can do you know getting vaccinated if you can continue asking up physically distancing reducing your risk as much as you can the more we do those things right now the faster we will get to our new normal which sam. I am happy to tell you. We'll be much much much more livable than where we are. Now last big picture question for you. Matty like a lot of the answers around these questions are complicated and nuanced and data and information will change over time as scientists learn more things but is there any kind of certainty yet or any kind of forecasting on the uncertainty horizon. About what our springs and summers might look like regarding the scene. Can you forecast what the next few months might deal. I mean say It's it's really really tough. I wish i could give you a better idea of this but what it will say is that i understand the question. And it's it's something that i sit with. You know every single day. It's it's it's really hard right like to know when this thing is going to be over like when things are going to feel better and what a would say is that these vaccines are going to make a huge difference. You know when. I said we're not going to be corona virus free. That doesn't mean that it's going to be in our face like this all the time. I mean i. It could be something similar to the flu. Where still impacts our lives but we have systems to to live with it. And you know if these vaccines are rolled out quickly and equitably. I've heard public health officials talking about this fall or or maybe more at the end of the year like really feeling a lot. More of a return to normal. Even if it's not totally back to normal. But i think more importantly than predicting when it will happen is just you know keeping the faith that it will happen like knowing that this will happen we will return to this newish normal and and that we have agency you know and that we have a say in this so so
What OPAWG is Doing to Build the Podcasting Community (and What You Can do to Help)
"Hey mark thanks for joining me today on. The sounds profitable podcasts. It's a pledge to be. Thank you awesome. Awesome insert today. We're gonna digging deeper into the article. I wrote about the podcasts analytics workgroup. I thought that was a really interesting place to start. When i started with sounds profitable because i really like the idea of another organization out there that was looking to help everybody gather information together and potentially have alternatives to just the ab solution out there. So i figure it's a. It's probably a great idea for us to start off with asking you to explain opa and what inspired you to start it. Okay yeah absolutely so it is. It's a lofty organization with a terrible name. I think i was hoping it was going to be a placeholder. It's what we're going with For now so back in a may twenty nine thousand nine hundred last year was a as we're recording anyway. I was looking around at some of my analytics data for the podcast hosting company the iran and one of the questions that sometimes gets asked as about how customers can move data from one provider into potent for example and. I thought it'd be really interesting to see what can be done about ways that we can standardize the tracking information that we have about each episode. How many times. It's been downloaded roughly. By whom and i started thinking more about things like the and being a programmer by by nature. I guess i thought that the kinds of problems that the i obey are tackling for podcasters in so much as they are calculating like what can what do we consider to be a download of a podcast episode. That felt to be something that we could tackle in an automated basis in a way that could be easily replicated uneasily run easily automated as i say the didn't necessarily need a huge amounts of people cost. It'd be time to set up initially but then the day would be that. It was something that that you would be able to run in the same way that we now have things. Like letting crypt for handling. Ssl certificates So that you now you don't have to pay multiple hundreds of dollars to get an s Sasol's difficult for your website. You can get one for free by using this system. Yeah i i think that's great and that's one thing that i wanted to kind of break down. There is that the i. a. b. you know has a fee per year depending on the size of your company. I looked to join his an independent. And i can get in like the first two years a startup rates at five thousand dollars now. Five thousand dollar fee doesn't do anything if i wanted to get certified. It's an additional cost. And that cost us what two ways one is a payment to the ab and the other is a payment to certification company. Like a like an auditing company that comes in and confirms that you adhered to the ab sanders by doing like tech audit and reviewing all your data and so james cridland pibe. News has his own self hosted podcast awesome. It could cost them forty to sixty thousand dollars easily for him for one year to be certified with the iab. Alternatively eager kicked the numbers over the cdn data over to like triton and be validated there. But you know that's a couple grand a month to and at the end of the day like that's still it's not that far off from what the charges so what you're talking about here is instead of something that each individual host would get audited instead. We have like a central piece of tech that is audited that's maintained in improbably. Third party verified that is able to allow hosting companies and other platforms to call in do a self certification and it focuses on that central point right instead of like the deep dive required for each individual partner. Absolutely and i think the the thing to to tack onto mr cridland example is he could use something like chargeable. Which i guess is now. Abc's fide he could use that but as someone who writes about for example listener privacy. There are questions around that that you would imagine there would be with any of these third party analytics services you know. There's a reason they make that infrastructure available for for people. Like a steve's especially of people to use for free and so without getting into the weeds on on that particular discussion. That might be a reason. Not to put words in james's mouth but that might be one of several reasons why he'd be not when you use a third party service because that's something that he does writes about.
QFC to close two Seattle stores, blames city's new $4 hazard pay law
"And bullying. That's what one Labor Union calls QFC decision to close two stores after Seattle required hazard pay for workers during the pandemic. Com O Seu Romero has the story If any, Sanders with KFC says the mandate that certain grocers pay an extra $4 an hour accelerated their decision to close to underperforming stores in Seattle on 15th Avenue on Capitol Hill and 35th Avenue in which would we're doing our best to really provide for our associates and Provide the things they need. So they have been getting appreciation paid and bonuses and rewards of since March. Sara Charon is with the union local 21 representing grocery workers. Kroger's intent seems perfectly clear. They are announcing these closings to try to intimidate any other local communities from passing hazard pay. She testified before the King County Council, which is following Seattle and considering requiring groceries to pay workers extra hazard pay. Sue Romero, come on use gentle council member, Theresa Mosqueda released a statement about the store closures, calling the move disappointing, adding quote Grocery workers have had to cover emergency shifts, pick up extra responsibilities and are five times more likely to contract Cove. It she went on to say these workers should not be pawns in a game of chess.
Imagine a life without Google
"Up one day and google. All of google is gone. G mail search. Google drive youtube google home. Google maps gone in australia. That world without google might not be that far off lawmakers. There are pushing for some regulations on the silicon valley giant and in response. Google has threatened to turn off its services in the entire country. Joining me discuss recode reporter and host of the new season of podcasts. You listen to called land of giants and it shrink affari history. Hey tiny so. The new season drops today. Congratulations everyone should listen to it right now. or after. this is over In this season you chronicle google's rise from tech startup to this global powerhouse that is now fighting with australian government walking. You tell us about australia. Tell me what's happening there with regulators and how this might play out. Yes so it's a real standoff between australian government and google and basically what the government wants is for google to pay publishers. More like newspapers magazines for new snippets. That show up. Google search but also and probably even more critically for google. They want google to open up their secret algorithms around how they rank results in search and notify any kind of news organization if they end up changing that algorithm and that is something that will really close chest and does not want to share and in land of the giants. We actually went into the origins of google's first revolutionary algorithm called page rank and You know why was it so important and something that you would never want to give away if you're google because that's exactly what makes you google. What would that mean to pull out of the country. Does that mean if someone in australia goes to. Google dot com. They don't get anything. Possibly it could mean that you cannot do a google search. You cannot Open g mail. I think that The full scope of it hasn't really been discussed because at this point they're negotiating right. It's a negotiation and google has said this is a last resort option. They would not wanna poll google's products. But who knows it could be something in between they could just block news articles from showing up so you could still find your local pizza hut. But you couldn't find an article about world politics. Yeah i mean it feels like this Matters to non. Australians which i assume is most of our listeners. apologies to those over there but for most listeners this is about one country. And you know they're fighting some tech giant. Whatever like. Tell me why i should care. The big deal is that this is kind of a template for how governments are going to deal with google in the future right because google and itself has become so powerful that it's almost like its own nation state and you know if a stray elia really wins in the standoff. It'll be a flex of power and so it could be something that we see happen. Not just a miss really about in england in the uk who knows maybe even in the us one day and it's a real test of who's gonna win and zooming out from this right. This is a conversation that's happening. Not just not just the united states but everywhere right about is google chew powerful. That's the theme. You look at during land of the giants. Tell me about how. Google might fair under a democratic administration that frankly like the republican administration that preceded. It is preparing serious. Antitrust action against the titans. That's rates for google right now. It is a very important critical and nerve wracking time. Because they're facing this historic lawsuit. The us government under president trump's administration has sued them. And said you know cues them being a monopoly and now this new administration under biden is inheriting that case and everyone is looking to see who is biden's new attorney general. Who is he going to pick to lead up. This google case is going to be even harder on google. Is he going to expand the scope of the case. How much attention is he going to give it. And we don't really know yet but we do know that there are really strong currents Within the democratic party pushing to be aggressive in breaking up google's power and that comes from people like elizabeth warren and bernie sanders. Who have campaigned around this idea and have a a strong progressive flank of supporters in the party so You know no one knows for sure. But let's say we do know that biden is feeling the pressure to take on big tech and to not be afraid to have his administration go after google and other big tech companies like amazon and facebook. So google is so big at this point that when we talk about antitrust action. We probably aren't really thinking big enough. Frankly i mean. Tell me if google were in australia or you know. Be broken up in the united states. Can you just give me like a sense of the vastness of google empire like. What are we taking for granted in this conversation. I think we take for granted a lot because we just use it every day. It's the calm this integral part of our lives. If google's products were to be pulled from the internet. I basically personally wouldn't probably be able to do my job or even get around with google maps or something like that right and google offers most of these products largely for free so to give google credit. You know they've made these tools. That are so incredibly helpful on the other hand. Are we to reliant on them should there be more competitors in the space. Those are the kinds of questions that politicians are asking right now.

Mahomes to have surgery to fix turf toe
"Were talking about Patrick Mahomes undergoing surgery turf toe. And we started talking about this about three hours ago, and we were just going around the room going. Do we know exactly what a turf toe is? Because it gets it gets thrown around a lot and remember when dealing Sanders was with us at the Super Bowl when he took off his sock, and he showed us that toe That was turf toe that never healed whether he had surgery on it or nod Jack Lambert, the Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker, I think had turf toe and it stayed with him the rest of his career, so we thought You know what? Let's bring in somebody who knows what they're talking about. A former NFL offensive lineman won a Super Bowl with Washington a Harvard trained orthopedic doctor, mark addicts and good to have you back on here, Doc. So Do you want us to tell you what we think Turf toe is and then you could probably correct us on this. That'd be great. Let's see what you guys got. Let's see how good you are. All right. I'll start with you, Paulie. What do you think your toe is like a ligament sprain in the toe that hampers an athlete from pushing off like sprinting like running for two. You got a definition for church to one's toe was so severely sprained from the pounding on the torture that it does something. What kind of disconnects Tito from the other toes and needs to be surgically fix a snap back into place. All right, Seaton It is an injury that when, uh, say like wide receivers are going to get their second foot in and they drag it along the left their toes on the turf, and then it gets hurt like that. No, I did not. I did not even look at it that way. Yes, my club, So I thought it was a rug burn style injury from any time she goes on the worse when you're playing with your kids of rug burn, but I do believe it's out. Now ligament underneath your toe that connects to the foot. Okay, let's let's bring in. Doc and Doc. What exactly is Turf toe. Well, I think I think example one wins the ligament injury so it could be a ligament injury. Or it could be an injury to the planter plate, which is almost like a Cartlidge thing That's on the bottom of it, So it is the big toe joint. And it rarely. Is it an injury? There were quite a surgery. The bass majority of players don't require surgery in the NFL there have been about there was a study that was done that had about 30 guys with serfdom. Injuries that were pretty severe, and only about 10% ended up requiring some surgery. Deon Sanders did require surgery. Deon Sanders Strip toe injury did end his career. Essentially, he stuck around for a couple more years, but never really was the same. Antonio Gates had it had a pretty bad turf toe had surgery in 2000 and eight and played Many years was very productive after that injury in surgery, So generally speaking guys, too, Okay. I think John was as his foot with a test was an extreme case. Didn't Mahomes play the Super Bowl with a Tauron ligament? Certainly did. I mean, I In other words, when you have a tip toe injury there, three grades break one. Great, too Great three. It's the same for almost anything. Great one, just a few of the fibers or tourney. Great to a bunch more. Tauron. Great three. It's completely disrupted. So for someone to need surgery generally, there's got to be a little bone chip. It's in the joint or the toe has to be somewhat unstable, which would tell you that that ligament tear had to be pretty significant.
More sports stadiums to be used for COVID-19 vaccinations
"Stadiums are gearing up to be used as coronaviruses vaccination sites. CBS is we did Jang President Biden took a virtual tour of the Arizona Cardinal Stadium. So come on in where FEMA helped open at 24 7 covert vaccination site. The president's relief package calls for money to set up more sites on a $15 an hour minimum wage, though he admitted the chances of that are slim that was met with disappointment by Progressive Senator Bernie Sanders. Democrats also added a measure to expand the child tax credit from the current $2000 per child tow up to $3600 something he certainly would support. And we've just
A junta shuts down a nations data networks
"On saturday. Myanmar's ministry of transport and communications directed that all mobile operators serving the country blocked the nation's data network voice and sms. services will remain available tech crunch reports. The general interdiction of data services follows earlier decisions by the country's new military government to block. I facebook and instagram and twitter. The ruling junta has sought to tamp down opportunities for mobilization of dissent and opposition since it took power in a coup last month the grey zone podcast yesterday featured an interview with g h q director jeremy fleming and general sir patrick sanders head of the. Uk's strategic command also responsible for military cyber operations in which they described britain cyber operations against isis british cyber forces disrupted the terrorist groups drone operations denied their operators mobile service and interfered with online propaganda. The campaign by britain's national cyber forces most active in two thousand sixteen and twenty seventeen is sky. News says the. Uk's only publicly avowed offensive cyber operation to date the counter propaganda influence. Operation is in some ways the most interesting intrusive of the efforts fleming is quoted as saying we prevented their propaganda both through physical actions on the battlefield but also remotely getting to their servers getting to the places. They stored their material and quote the intrusion into isis networks extended to locking isis members. Out of accounts deleting or altering the group's information and taking down online posts and videos general sanders said quote. We wanted to ensure that when they tried to coordinate attacks on our forces their devices didn't work that they couldn't trust the orders that were coming to them their seniors and quote. He added that. Deception and misdirection were important ways of degrading isis combat power tactically british cyber operators said to have been working closely with allies including the us were able to block isis commanders orders from reaching subordinates. And we're also able to misdirect isis forces on the ground. In some cases sending their units into kill zones. It was general. Sanders explained a combined arms multi domain effort. The cyber operations didn't stand on their own. He said quote we wanted to deceive them and to misdirect them to make them less. Effective less cohesive and sap them morale. But you can't just do that in cyberspace. You have to coordinate and integrate that with activities that are going on on the ground whether it's from our own forces special forces and others and quote former director of the us cybersecurity and infrastructure security agency. Chris crabs drew some press attention over the weekend with an interview. He gave the financial times the headline in the media outlet. Silicon is representative quote ex. Us cyber boss calls for military strikes on ransomware. Hackers it says which suggests a brace of thomas hawks prancing downtown to hit a gregor extortionists in their parents or maybe pre dawn vertical insertion of a ranger battalion to put paid to the ragnar locker gang in whatever tacky cybercafe. They're using but a close reading or actually a pretty casual reading of krebs remarks indicates that he's pretty much closer in his thinking to ghg cues fleming than he is to say. Curtis lemay or george patton. His point is that ransomware is sufficiently destructive and costly to make it worth governments wild to actively disrupt the gangs operations military cyber units like us cyber command. The uk's national cyber force have disruptive capabilities law enforcement organizations don't and it might be useful to think about how they might be used if at all there may be decisive legal objections to doing so on the other hand. There might be some legal models under which that kind of action might be legitimately organized. What if ransomware actors could be treated like pirates for example new post reports that kaspersky has discerned new activity by the crew using the silent fade. Malware silent fade is an online ad fraud operation that kaspersky has observed resurgent against victims in asia and europe. They'll be worth watching. The silent fade.

Democrats to Unveil Up to $3,600 Child Tax Credit as Part of Stimulus Bill
"House committees are now hammering out the details of the nearly $2 Trillion Coburn relief package. Put forward by President Biden. Children are at the center of one of these pieces of the package. And with more on that I'm joined by ABC s Elizabeth Scholesy in Washington. Elizabeth Great to have you with us. As usual. This is expected to be direct cash payments to American families with kids. Hey, yeah, That's right. So great to be with you. This is a new proposals that we put forward today by Democrats in the House Ways and Means Committee, essentially calling for an expansion of the child tax credit, So the breaks out is essentially Asking for $3600 per child under the age of six and $3000 per child between the ages of six and 17 and the Democrats say this is holding true to Biden's promise to expand this chap this child tax credit. And to help alleviate poverty. No, there is research showing that this would help cut child poverty and half That's according to a Columbia University study, and this is part of a broader effort as we know of that nearly $2 trillion covert relief package, but certainly a Democratic priority here that have gotten some Republicans support. We saw similar opportunities will put forward by Senator Mitt Romney last week. So this is an interesting way to get more cash to families, especially lower income families and CBS interview yesterday, the president indicated he He doesn't really want to come off that 1.9 trillion mark, but is willing to negotiate with regard to income eligibility. That's exactly right. Joe Biden is holding true to the demand for $1400 stimulus checks. He says he will not go up go below that dollar amount, but he is willing to negotiate on who gets those checks. Currently, the proposal says, If you get more if you earn more than $75,000, you would start phasing out and you would not qualify their own individual That would be $150,000 per couple. So I didn't sound out open to maybe having that income threshold deal little bit lower. Notably those. Some Democrats are pushing back on that idea. We did hear from Senator Bernie Sanders and said anyone who got a stimulus check under President Trump. Should also get a check under President
Biden Wants Congress To Pass COVID Relief Before Mid-March

He doesn't believe the $15 an hour minimum wage proposal will survive certain Senate budget rules being used to pass the bill without Republican votes, he tells CNN state of the union.

A big milestone in the Senate
"The senate passed the budget for this package. it is a big milestone. but if you could talk about what that means exactly because it's not necessarily that they pass this package but it is a key procedural step here talk a little bit about that right so what happened earlier in the week. Is that the house. And the senate democrats passed budget. Resolutions will the resolution to basically these budget. Resolutions is the process Where the committees in this case the senate budget committee. That's run by bernie sanders. They look at They they go through the budgets and they increase decrease spending Dead and the ideas that you get busy. You get what you want out of a bill in through this reconciliation just by fiddling with the numbers of the budget and it's a first step process to in its case pass biden's what point nine trillion stimulus package That that he's been wanting to get since he's been in office right so let's let's break it down what. What exactly is in this package. So the one point nine trillion package the american rescue blind. It has a lot of the improvements over the cares act. Plan was passed almost this time last year. Last march when the pandemic started Obviously the big one that everybody is interested in is d. stimulus checks. This is gonna be fourteen hundred dollar stimulus check instead of six hundred dollars. Twelve hundred dollars a previous ones. But it's not the big two thousand one That's well that they that the democrats were talking about in recent months Then there's also increase in unemployment aid the there's a weekly a bonus check that gets sent unemployed workers that's going to be increased to four hundred dollars and it's going to last until the end of september right now tony lasting until mid march for three hundred dollars then variety of other Extra provisions for rental assistance saudi eviction moratorium and eight for the Stay states and local governments more money for child tax credits and also more money for vaccine right as i understand it. A lot of funding will go towards setting up distribution centers. Porting Folks who actually running these vaccinations senators and really just sort of getting more infrastructure built out for deploying more vaccines to more people which is something we all wanna
"sanders" Discussed on Work in Progress with Sophia Bush
"And i think ultimately it was really helpful because from a sketching and design perspective being able to learn you know correctly how to draw and really look at things because you know the first. Two years of the program aren't very creative. They're very technical. So i think. I sort of took the technical aspects of drawing and painting and then we were able to apply them to find joy so then. I left parsons after two years. And i went to san francisco. Where i learned and studied had a make jewelry at the bench and so i sort of fused the sketching and drawing with the technical engineering and manufacturing jury. It's so cool and people forget that jewelry because it's beautiful. And i think people look at jewelry and many other creative products like that more as art but they forget that it really does require serious engineering skills. It's serious engineering mathematical. In fact yes and that's the funniest part because as a daughter of a math teacher and i it was my most hated subject and to stay. My mom's always like you know the funniest thing is is the one of my children that uses geometry all day. Long is you all. I do is math. And all the designed for juries constantly. Math knits precise and it has to be exact and It's very specific and so it is an extremely rare just talking about this yesterday. There's no room for air in germany. Materials are not forgiving since the engineering aspect of. It is a huge part. And when you consider how delicate at all yan is it's expensive it can be. You can ruin the materials if you're not working slowly and focused it's challenging at times barely frustrating. What was it like when you left new york. And you mentioned that you went to san francisco. Yeah you you trained with this master. Other what hap. How do you show up in my brain. It's like the what's the what's the disney movie fantasia. When you chose to be the apprentice you know and you have to figure out how to how to learn this major trade. Yeah i mean. I was very bad at first. I was very bad at at making find jewelry physically by hand So it was real love hate relationship for me and there were definitely moments where i was like am i am i in the right place here you know..

She is front and Center bitches on this year sports illustrated swim cover Miss Golden Barbie was named rookie of the year last year in two thousand nineteen and she has appeared in Book Vogue Italia is Italian Italy vogue British Vogue Vogue Russia row Vogue Arabia. Love. Allure CR fashion book Esquire Glamour G., G. Q. Interview, and like every other magazine that exists and walked in some of the most important runway shows in fashion. She is incredible we her style. There's so much need to talk to her especially about the fact that has she ever worn a bathing suit that has a bum these welcome to lady Gang Jasmine Sanders. Okay. Okay you guys. First of all I have to say something I've never seen a more perfect face on zoom. It's not fair. Make you I have to say better than the best introduction I think I've ever gotten in my entire life so Come with me everywhere. Like bows amazing. Jasmine. When did you look in the mirror and realize that you're being hot? So, my. What a great first question. We want know what? We've never had that moment. You are all beautiful do not have their. Six and. Twenty like I had the whole duckling experience I also got braces I wanted to say that was my junior year in high school. So that was quite experience because I felt like I had already kind of blossomed a little better than I did the Mike. And then out of nowhere, my dentists hit me with brace space out of nowhere and I was like things aren't bad enough. Weight to throw that out me I'm trying like struggling to graduate and everything I. I had bigger issues to worry about So yeah, I don't know. Okay. So my knowledge of the sports illustrated cover I believe it to be true that you shoot you go down you shoot all around the world and no, there's no set up where they're like, okay girls this is the cover they shoot everything and then they look at all the photos and. Decide what is the best photo we took Yeah for me I think that you are absolutely right. We all go in there. We have absolutely no idea if our images are going to be used as the cover we shoot maybe like I want to say I shot probably fourteen or fifteen swimsuits and you may not even see all of the ones that we shot. A lot of the images like you get all of the images online but you don't get all of that and the magazine as well. So you have to really be in tune with the website and the magazines to make sure you get a bit all of the behind the scenes, all of the stuff from their instagram, all of that but you have absolutely no idea the second that you're shooting you're just like, let me give each bathing suit my all because I've never know which one they're gonNA pick and it could be one where may be your least favorite. But then you see it and you're like, you know what that I? Should've trusted MJ and I honestly I always just like put my all in that everything that I do. But like this shoot I really was like, let me go above and beyond and maybe by fingers crossed, this could happen and we it is very rare that they shoot more than one model together or us even laughing with our travels. So we the girls I think all of us were kind of just excited like, okay. We get to shoot together maybe they're doing something exciting inside the magazine or like going to do a different type of spread in the in the internal I don't know what I'm saying I'm like rambling. In the pages but. It is it ended up being on the cover and I think all of us freaked out just as much like I. I was completely shocked and I was definitely not thinking that we were GonNa have. To covers each which is really crazy. It's insane. Now I read that and I knew we we knew we loved you but we knew we loved you more when I read an article that your prep for the sports illustrated shoe was Pasta Tequila Oh my God. Yes. God bless you the first year, my rookie year I really like buckled down and try to make sure that I was like in tiptop shape. I wanted my body to look its best like I've always been into sport. So it was never like, Oh my God. Let me lose weight to make sure that I look good in this issue and I'm skinny enough for whatever sports illustrated swimsuit all about like. In power and confident beautiful women who are all shapes and sizes. So for me this year I was just like you know ed I worked my butt off last year I was super toned I for myself I felt like I looked my best that I've ever loved but I was like let's try a more one. Manley curvy by and Mike just be happy from within and not really care. What not not care what? I look like on the outside but just like go with it and there was for me I was like I wanna I, WanNa eat things that make me happy. I. WanNa drink and have fun with my friends. I want to celebrate this moment because now it's not me like really trying out or feeling like I'm trying out now I'm part of the family.

"It doesn't take a subpoena to put out a statement if Ambassador Bolton has to say he could do that. So that's the idea of you. Don't need to call Bolton Talk to let him have his say the man can just like you know talked George Stephanopoulos or something so true. Yes which is true. Yeah so okay. There are two levels here. Right does the Bolton News change what Republican senators are likely to do with regard to allowing witness testimony. I think that's possible Sibal. I'm not sure it's likely but it's possible and it certain certainly likelier that then that it will that it will change what they do with regards to acquitting trump at the end of this right. But I've been saying all along despite events continually proven me wrong that people are like underestimating underestimating. The chances that this doesn't end in acquittal again. I don't think it's likely the final piece of this here is so the likeliest scenario is that president trump is acquitted how much then do senators votes on the final resolution of this acquittal or our removal from office affect their electoral prospects. Going forward like can we look at the Clinton impeachment and say that some senators had to pay a price for how they voted wooded so far. Trump's readings are a little higher than they were pre impeachment process. Even though a peach in sports also gone up. kind of converged little you bet. So all of the economy's been pretty good. There are other kind of factors that factor in their reporting a more partisan move because the Democratic primary and stuff. But yeah look I mean. I don't think we've answered this whether or not their electoral repercussions for how you vote in this. I mean for Clinton like pretty clearly Clinton over performed in in the nineteen ninety eight. I guess it was midterms because people did not like the impeachment trial. That was pretty clear. It's very rare for a party to over to actually gain seats in a mid term. Democrats did and impeachments explanation but that was a very very unpopular. Pitching Pressler's this. One is like mildly popular. And so so it's a bit different. I mean you know support for calling more. Witnesses is very high and so the talking points that hey whatever you thought about impeachment the GOP refused to actually have a fair trial or call witnesses. Like that's a pretty decent talking point. I think for Democrats right so if this is faded to end in acquittal anyway do Democrats actually not want with witnesses. Maybe well okay maybe right because then it just gives them a better baby. I continue to think that enough of them would under the right. Circumstances be willing to throw Biden under under the bus.

"They're taking and taking very forcefully so I think that's probably coming from from some you. You know informal networks of of that Former White House. But it's interesting. Obviously when you when the name the Obama coalition is it's your name you probably in the Obama coalition being working class whites and young people and Black voters turning out in you know all in concert to elect a democrat. You might have some shall we say bias towards that particular strategy whereas Bernie Sanders would say it's old. It's an old paradigm. You can't think that way anymore. So so I don't know I don't think the democratic establishment has done anything meaningful to combat Bernie. I think you've seen some stories about you know it's it's kind of like the Republican serious concerns and it's like. Is it in the nature of the Democratic Party to do that. In addition into that Democrats have the same problem that Republicans did in two thousand sixteen which is the most effective way. If you're really worried that Bernie Sanders can't win a general election and you want to prevent them from winning the nomination the most effective way would be to rally behind another candidate.

He's gotten quite a few endorsements although they're mostly from like mayor's representatives right and not like Sanders and governor right so I just don't think you've seen any any like any movement on the part of established Democrats to stop Bernie that would that is at all likely to have any effect effect yet. Now if he wins. Iowa Wins New Hampshire. I think you might see a lot of Democrats say okay. The the time is now were rallying behind Biden Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah it depending on the result or. Maybe not like. We kept waiting for that to happen in two thousand Sixteen Publicans and never did let me raise three very important differences which is why I think the sanders trump parallels are overstate. At least in this respect right number one is that sanders is much closer to the democratic mainstream then trump was to what we understood her mainstream to be in twenty sixteen eighteen right. He has been on the left of the party but his agenda isn't that different than other candidates moved to the left. I mean compared to trump right. He's not explicitly criticizing past. GOP nominees. Right it's a matter of degrees but like okay number two. I hope how you can have a debate about that. I have a substantive debate about Euclid. The word you put in there that we understood at the time are important there. I think trump is pretty close to the Republican mainstream but not the way that the establishment perceived it well here. Here's an example. Trump literally flipped some republican positions Russians on like Social Security and Medicare for example. Is Sanders literally flipping a core democratic policy. Poor like free trade he. He flipped the Republicans position on free. Trade I think I guess my argument would be forget like policy positions for a second. Most political actors are like super crass and don't actually give about any of this stuff. Oh and so sure fine and so it's more about. How would this person being the nominee affect me right And I think what we learned about Republicans was they decided. I could get by just fine fine. I wonder if Democrats will conclude the same thing with Bernie. You see a lot of reporting about Oh red. State centers are concerned about Bernie Sanders as a nominee manet. We saw the same reporting with trump in two thousand sixteen but like ultimately you know. That's where north coming from for Biden is actually from or orientates other than like Bloomberg is coming from these swing district representatives Believe me two of the differences right number two is that sanders is not in a strong strong position. As trump was yes. Anders is not leading a national polls by ten points. Trillion opposed by six points. That's big right number. Three is that democratic delegate allocation rules. Give the Party and voters more ability to change their mind late in the embrace. Because you do not have these winner-take-all states and so burning actually has to win a majority or else super delegates coming to play and you have kind of a scenario that of course all the journalists would find really fun but contested convention And so that gives the party like a bit more time than you have with trump. If we all of a sudden he's winner take all states so those are differences. I mean there's also like I don't know right. I think a difference number four is that I think this earlier. I think the party doesn't it doesn't necessarily think there is a slam. Dunk electability argument against him against him yanked they. I think if you talk to the average Democratic Attic Party actor I'm just GonNa Guess Okay and it's matches accounts position in polls. I think it would say if we had to pick between the top four we would prefer on collectability grounds Biden. But after that exactly maybe learning. I think that's honestly what the average if you corner the average establishment person. I think that's what the average person would think but to be clear there isn't a slam dunk electability case against Sanders nor war was the second best in the polls against trump. We wait much like it's worth noting. Well we actually have one more topic to discuss today. We've already imposed almost entire podcast about the current state of the Democratic primary arrays in Iowa and sanders etc.. But let's talk about these new revelations being reported from the draft of John Bolton's book but first today's podcast.
"sanders" Discussed on FiveThirtyEight Politics
"We're back and we've talked about what the picture looks like more nationally and we're starting to get to what things look like on the ground in Iowa the conventional wisdom about How you win Iowa is that you surge late in the game and beat? Expectations is what sanders is doing surging late in the game or is there still kind of room. I'm for things to get mixed up quite a bit when it actually comes down to caucus day as far as Iowa goes. I mean it's a question Gaylon I think the answer is the timing. Might be perfect Bernie or it might not be perfect and we won't really know until a week from today and change from today. Yeah look so there literally is the you know. The kind of scenario of a candidate surging extremely late that has happened before like John Kerry's surge in two thousand four. It happened extremely light. Rick Santorum surge in two thousand twelve happened extremely late so I don't know what the mechanism might be. But you do have after I mean look. Our model still has gigantic confidence. Intervals for Iowa rights as Bernie get somewhere between eight percent and forty two percent of the vote probably right And that is born out of the fact that number one polling in the Caucasus always a little bit rough number two you absolutely can have a meeting area that shifts over over seven days. I think it's amazing by the way that the to national front runners. There's not really active like negative storylines about the either Biden or sanders. Right now I do kind of wonder if the Sanders prickliness not from senator himself but from people around want him makes people afraid to attack him and that does Bernie good. I don't know right when it comes to media narrative additive in the run. Up to the caucuses one thing that happened over the weekend is the Des Moines Register endorsed Elizabeth Warren. We've talked a little bit about whether or not endorsements -dorsements matter in the past but Claire Mike. Do you see this particular endorsement being meaningful given how important Iowa's generally on this podcast we talk about endorsements percents from like party elites elected officials. Here we're talking about in a newspaper endorsement which is similar but but a little different Jeffrey skelly on of Vare elections analysts looked at this site. The des Moines Register's endorsement has at least coincided with on average about a four or five point bump in in when you compare people's polls at the time of the endorsement to how they eventually finished now some years like John Edwards in two thousand four was is pulling out about eleven percent when he got the endorsement and won about thirty three percent of the vote. So it's a huge bump. Was it down to the magister endorsement. Well I don't know other years. There was basically no change right but I think the right way to look at it is what it was just getting which is primaries are so fluid and primary polling is so inexact that you just have to go into it thinking hey anything could still happen here and our forecast reflects is that right so like in this last week it is totally possible. Let's say people in Iowa include Buddha judge doesn't have a chance his support evaporates. Where does that go let say Klobuchar? Who has actually been gaining ground in Iowa? Paul's she's like in the high single digits now people might conclude. Oh actually that she didn't get high enough that I'm not gonNA waste my vote on Klobuchar. I think a lot of a lot of support could go to war right or Biden or anybody the else so I think that's embraces still very much. It's still like any. Including which are any of these people could win. And it wouldn't be that surprising right the clincher global chairman would be surprising because she has to leapfrog that for other people it would not be surprising if she got like third place in which site raced in which case given that. She has a New Hampshire. Endorse Nuke newspaper endorsement. How would that serve lick each? That's an interesting thing. Right IF AMY KLOBUCHAR nobody does decently well in Iowa. Probably isn't going to win but like I don't know win place show. She plays our shows. What does that do for her? Chances in New Hampshire These v the model. Maybe this is a good explain club which are actually does sort of Paul. Okay in New Hampshire specifically. I am skeptical of like like. They're definitely scenarios where it club. Char- let's say. Finish his top three in Iowa the media which has after ignoring her for much of the kind of frankly seems eager for a club but jars surge right I could see her becoming kind of a factor sort of in the way that like Jon. Huntsman was briefly factor. Right after finishing third in New Hampshire. And then you know maybe she also finished third New Hampshire and then you know frankly. I don't think either Nevada or South Carolina look like very good states for her and then she may be wins the Minnesota Primary I'm Eleanor Caucus on Super Tuesday. And then bows out or something right. So for every one zero she actually wins or comes close. There are ten scenarios involving her becoming a factor turbot not actually coming close to winning right and that's the barrier right like if she were consistently. There's a poll that came out last night at twelve or thirteen percent in third third place. Right that's polled. Our is an exception if you consistently had polls like that she really at thirteen percent instead of eight like that actually matters a fair bit at thirteen percent in Iowa Iowa yeah. I don't disagree with any of that. One thing I will say is you could imagine Klobuchar surging in Iowa and it being super isolated just given her regional connections actions to the state I do. It's noteworthy that. She has also climbed on a ton but she has a climbed the tunnel highway. Either you know. She's up to the mid to high single digits in New Hampshire too so maybe that does suggest that if she is able to do something in Iowa she at least has some base to work off of in New Hampshire. We kind of pivoted away from talking about the Des Moines Register endorsement of Warren. But I'm curious Claire. You talked about Santa's closing argument in Iowa. Basically being Birdie Birdie beat trump which is what you see on the signs right. What is warrants closing argument? Warren's closing argument seems to be one that's more of the traditional Democratic Primary Appeal which is I'm the one who best represents your desires for the future and I am the smartest and best equipped to do the job. I think another years that would be a persuasive argument to Democratic primary voters but in a primary where people are obsessed zest with trump. Trump is like this fascinating boogeyman two Democratic primary voters for good reasons. Certainly but there's this idea of how. How will he get under the person's skin right as if we don't we don't we haven't seen for years of evidence for how he does which is like like hell figure out who you are? Go figure out. He'll he'll do something and I think there's also I mean this is the sort of more interesting part to me in some ways. which is voters seem to care are less about ability to do the job probably because of trump right? The idea of there used to be this. This idea that only geniuses this is MEGLOMANIAC or otherwise ran for president. And we're good at the job. Perhaps the public has been disabused of that notion. There's more of a recognition that the presidency residency is and can be bolstered by smart and powerful and influential non actors and therefore you want a person who is ideologically pure from your point of view to occupy the Office Anyway Elizabeth Warren. I think perhaps as we're seeing through the numbers suffers from having quite quite a coherent and traditional appeal to primary voters. She's also making the electability case in the in the last days De Moines Join Register has this headline Elizabeth Warren Closing Argument Iowans Women Win. Quote Unquote I think that's telling two ways one. It shows to some extent that she's been on the defensive on that point as as people have raise electability questions but to at least unless. There's there's a swing winging last week days. It does suggest that declares point the Boogeyman of trump. I think you saw in twenty Democratic voters after the Clinton lost in two thousand sixteen. We're like we are going to rally behind women. Try to elect women to offices. That's important to us. I think you've seen beating trump take the place of that to some extent in twenty twenty where a lot of voters are saying. Electing women is important to us. Beating trump is the first priority already. And that's how we have essentially three men atop the polling chart. I'm curious this is something that the model can tell us. Although it's not public information we can see what would happen if each one of those four candidates were to win. The Iowa caucuses in a nutshell. I don't want to take too much time with this. But how does each of them winning. Winning the Iowa caucuses shift the National Picture Biden winning puts them in a fairly commanding position where he's already had nationally a lot of skepticism. About why this burning fizzle out. Or whatever Bernie winning I think leads to a very competitive race between probably Bernie and Biden in which which depending on Bird Bernie's margin of victory and where Biden finishes either candidate could be kind of the slight favourite Warren. Winning would at this point point likely create a balance because it would be come back story. Her pulling is not as robust as sanders is or Biden's in states after Iowa so that could be a case where you get a bounce becomes very competitive but that really be more more fifty fifty s right Also Sanders might not want to I. I don't think he quit unless he did really badly. Right and Buddhist twinning is kind of your kind of club which are kind of in the same case right. That's your kind of classic they would get a balanced and become a big part of the conversation sation. I tend to think based on looking at scenarios in the model they would not necessarily become the favourite. They might become the second favourite behind depending on. Who did well there? Maybe Biden or something. But it's not that hard to figure out I mean. They won the Silver Lining in Iowa for Warren. He'd much rather be gaining. In the polls in Iowa you'd much rather be in Bernie's position than Moore's position. There is a slight several lining which is because expectations factor into the bounce. That now Bernie's win in Iowa is a little bit more expected that might lead to a smaller bounce. Warren's win would be considered very surprising even though she's not that far behind I think Buddha Chech- win would be considered surprising now even though he is also not that far behind in fact he's really just a couple of points off the front runners so so in some ways like the question is okay is sanders is like surge. Well tiny answer is probably yes but the downside to that is that the conventional wisdom Even polls show basically sanders and Biden tied in Iowa. The conventional wisdom is that Iowa is Bernie's to lose you know if I were burning out with low to like downplay expectations -tations a little bit because that conclusions not really justify based in the polls where he's tied for the lead and you have third and fourth and maybe if plays as candy who still have some chances also so let's wrap on this given how much attention has been focused on sanders now that he's improved his position. In national and state level polling is the Democratic Cavalry Establishment Cavalry coming out against him or are they still choosing to remains someone on the sidelines in this primary. Well great question. There's been rumblings for quite a while that Barack Obama is not like Bernie Sanders. Anderson does not want him to win the Democratic primary Hillary Clinton obviously stirred up a lot of noise last week when she basically said no one likes him and doesn't want to work with him which is obviously lots of voters do actually like him. I think she's more referring to I think interpret that she was referring to the establishment. But you know there's a political piece that quoted for Instance Obama's twenty twelve campaign spokesman Ben the bolts basically saying he's gotta be stopped now. Now Obama World people did forcefully. Push back on a a piece last week. That sort of said Obama himself has said that he doesn't want to be around. I think the Obama people are really protective of Obama's sort of role as he's the one president in this trump Obama tussle who's actually maintaining his dignity cares about the constitution about the sort of the higher statesmanlike duties. And he's not gonNA put a thumb on the scale for anyone no matter how he feels. Personally I don't know if that's true but that's certainly the public line..

"Parring relationships improved or worsened over the four years. What would you say improved? I think it's gone through phases. Yeah I mean I think it's I feel like listeners. Get get a weird impression but we really like each other we do. We actually sort of hang out and enjoy joyous sometimes. Yeah I think that was super convince your according to the CDC here are the milestones four year old should reach. Okay cooperates with other children. Nope now we'd have reached. That often can't tell what's real and what's make believe true for us. Know some basic rules of grammar hammer such as correctly using he and she you do that. Tell stories we do that. I think we're maybe we're a little behind for four year old but but we're we're getting there. I listened to like ten minutes of the first episode. We ever recorded. y'All how was it. It's fine. We have improved improved. Yeah Yeah Yeah. I think like recent additions to the podcast have really solidified it. Take it from. I will say B. Minus C.. Plus to to a a it used to take me a lot longer to at it. The podcast Oh interesting people have Stockholm Syndrome. People have gotten better at speaking. I think just just in general not using filler words or being concise and to the point in expressing our points. Sometimes well well. That was fun. Happy Birthday everybody anyway. According to the five thirty Democratic Primary Forecast Sanders odds of winning the majority of delegates increased from twenty two percent on Friday just three days ago to twenty eight percent today on Monday. Nate what's behind Sandra's surge beyond the top level odd. Does it clear that it's more based on early state level polls or national polls. It's both which is kind of what you'd expect. This is kind of a a medium speed medium-sized surge right. It's not kind of sudden like the Comma Harrison Jeff. The debate it hasn't been as prolonged longed as the now reverse frankly Elizabeth Warren surge of the summer and fall. But it's well timed. What is behind it? I suspect part of it. It is that believe it or not there are actually some degree of lanes and the primary and I think that probably some people who are on the fence between Sanders and more in our coming back to Sanders unders. I also suspect that there are undecided. Voters and there are voter votes for minor candidates right who might drop out of the race or might be at one or two percent right in some of those probably go to to sanders. It does not really seem becoming at Biden's expense. I mean if you look at our polling average demand that Biden is like always in exactly twenty seven percent and he's an exactly twenty seven or twenty seven point one or something as a recording. This late morning. You know if you WANNA get more complicated. Probably some conflicting dynamics going on right where Buddha Chech- has fallen a bit maybe his supporters go to war but then some warrant splurge go into Bernie right. Maybe by we'd actually gaining and not holding steady if not for this actual Bloomberg gains gains in the pulse of they're always different dynamics one of the things like this kind of mean going around or narrative going around that Hey Bernie has always been in. This position has been ignored. That's not true. This actual five or six point surgery had he's had is pretty important because being fifteen percent nationally. Which is where Warren is? At least our model is a much worse position not hopeless for her but like much worse than being at twenty one percent. We're Bernie is. Is it accurate to say this sanders surge such as it is. It's Kinda felt like it's happened in two stages where there was. I don't know it was like a month ago month and a half ago where we were writing on the site and talking about on this podcast. Hey Bernie Sanders actually in pretty decent position here and is the second most likely to win the nomination and then more recently. You've had kind of another little surge where he's where there is kind of like a few weeks ago or a month ago like this change in perception exactly that was people kind of finally notice that Oh okay well. Warren has slipped into third place. That happen in our polling average around Thanksgiving that sanders overtook warrant for second place but more Warren Warren falling than him gaining right and people are like okay. Well there were all these kind of magic scenarios where Duval Patrick will get inner Bloomberg will get in which he did. I guess right or something will happen. Club HR will surge or something and none of that really happens people. I kind of like okay. Well if Biden doesn't win it and by the another cases somebody who's also oddly kind of ignored for being in a position in the polls. Then maybe Bernie will actually either win or be the main rival but then he has actually gained recently recently and those are important. Gained just like you can't win any seats with fifteen percent of the vote. You can't win. Say Twenty percent of the vote. You know the one slightly sour note for Sanders is that I'd say his urge is the most ambiguous in Iowa and let's talk a little bit more about the specific state of the race in Iowa in a minute but first we can look at all these polls and see that sanders is doing better obviously the polls are not themselves going to tell us why exactly that's happening. What are some theories on cleared? You have an idea of what's going on here for voters. It's the conflict between him and Warren or something else. I think what's interesting to watch with Sanders in Iowa is the actual pitch giving voters was which is a general election. Pitch Right he is saying basically like the same thing on the stump that his his controversial talking points to door knockers. That started the whole worn feud set which is thirty. Sanders brings trump voter types. CBS Back to the Democratic Party. More than any other candidate will and I think it's an interesting pitch. Now you'll see tons of Obama people campaign gene types from the Obama era floating around and saying we got to cut this off at the legs sanders cannot win the primary. He is not a good general election candidate. You're seeing obviously newspaper. Endorsements go to more moderate candidates but I think that the argument that Elizabeth Warren is perhaps Troubled from the we use it with with all the frothiness that entails Elizabeth. Warren has been stuck with the electability thing in part because she is a woman I think and in part because she's maybe trying to ride the line a little bit more about how liberal positions are. And how doable they are people. Just kind of like the idea that sanders has been this one thing the entire time and I think there's some gut instinct from people where they say I don't know maybe the point about the general election thing right and I think it has a little bit to do with war and falling and sanders kind of having a good past month there so I mean I think he was pretty good on the blast debate our voters in debate actually like Warren's performance but didn't seem to translate into. I mean she's not had a good general election. Polls if you look at national Paul's like just to keep this super simple sanders is increase has coincided with a slight Warren downtick and a gradual Buddha. The judge downslope and just kind of at a glance that makes some amount of sense to me that he would pick up that his Buddha judge voters orders. Well why would people vote for. I mean if you look at the overlaps people say who are you. Considering Buddha Chech- Sanders is one of the least overlapping lapping. But you're t you're talking about a gain of a few percentage points here so like you know what I mean. It's not like it takes all that many voters to increase it but like yeah why. Why would someone vote for Buddha judge right? He's thirty seven year old mayor of a small town. I think one of the big reasons people were considering him and and are considering them is they think he's electable. They think here's a fresh face will look good on a debate stage against trump and so I wonder if some of those people people are now looking at sanders as well. Actually maybe counterintuitive but the ideology diverse second sanders is actually the electable candidate. He can put some of these places. In the Midwest excites young people excite. Young people can win over some of those obama-trump boaters etc etc.. One thing that you mentioned that I wanted to come back back to. Is this idea that some of the minor candidates could be losing support that ultimately goes to sanders. I've heard people talk about that earlier. In the race like Tulsi Gabbard or Andrew Andrew Yang if their support would eventually go to sanders. Is there any actual evidence of that in the polls at this point so Yang is actually urging the Yang surge bridge as actually gained. He's actually ahead of the much. More heralded amy. Klobuchar international polling average is like four percent so young out of the the answer is no basically you know but there are a lot of other candidates right. There were formerly Kamala Harris and and Cory Booker and Julia Castro Right And and they didn't do that well but they collectively had you know seven or eight percent of the vote. You have undecided vote that I think was around twelve or thirteen percent right. I mean Mike. It's telling earlier air which is like important emphasize right. We're not talking about an earth. shatteringly large change and absolute terms right. Sanders has gone from MM fifteen or sixteen percent international polling average as kind of the mid to late summer to eighteen percent as of December two twenty one percent. Now Right. That's not like like a earth shatteringly large change in absolute terms. It just happens to be pretty important just because the way the math works you go from fifteen to twenty one as I said like though that's important kind of inflection point and so it's not like we're talking about him. Having made enormous pickups are just important and you know and there are these kind of loads floating around on that that gives you opportunities to gain ground. Maybe that's why the surge looks more dramatic if you're looking at the forecast than if you're just looking at national polling. Well it's not you've been that dramatic in the forecast. I mean it's meaningful but it's like his chances have gone up what four or five percentage points. I mean by the way one of the about three days one. The thing about the forecast is that we're nearing actual voting right so if this were a week a week if this were the summer not exactly a week if this were a weak point if this was the summer then there'd be recent say okay. Well that's nice but like there are probably getting more shifts in the race right so it's the timing of it that matters because yeah I mean you could kind of say okay. Nothing's really changed the block rights and polls have him downs and bills have him up but like gaining a few points at this time is pretty nice. Lead time for Bernie. I don't mean to make that implies though like he's just been lucky. I mean maybe it. Is You know the fact that he he has a lot of money. He has very busy ethic supporters. I mean I still think the pivotal moment in his whole campaign is the moment when Warren Surges. She's kind of declared a eight National Front runner or co front runner in mid October. And then neither the left nor the kind of moderates really embrace her right because you can imagine either one of those things having happened you can imagine the left having said I. We have things we like about burning things about Warren but Warren is almost position where she can be Biden and Gosh now spoke to her. She's going to be nominated right. Didn't happen in fact sanders got like some indoor spins from. AFC and the squad the Sanders supporters. who were some of the most vocal people were became pretty antiwar in right so that happened at the same aim time the establishment terrified of nominating Warren Mayor p kind of hitter from the right kind of worked right and so she really got squeezed and Sanders hasn't actually gotten that much attacks don't necessarily stick to him in part like you.

"All right thanks again to lacey rose of the Hollywood reporter Backyard Studio with my two panelists question for you both Tom Vanessa. Are we ever go over. Two Thousand Sixteen. I don't think so. I really don't think all right because it is the closest country has ever come to potentially electing a woman. I'm and it's going to be this conversation that we keep coming back to. In terms of the role that gender does play in politics and the way that that political figures who happen to be women are perceived reported on and talked about a little surprising is the conflict between Bernie Ernie and Hillary still burn so bright for years later but the conflict between Hillary and Obama in two thousand eight was actually way more intense mike go going back and forth two thousand eight primary Overa- and they got over it so maybe winning just heals wounds I would say yes when you get to be Secretary of state. I guess that probably left on that note. It's time for a break lake when we come back my favorite game. WHO said that you're listening to? It's been a minute from NPR B. R. B. Support for this podcast comes from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation helping NPR advanced journalistic excellence in the digital age. Hagi was good. We probably shouldn't be friends. I mean statistically speaking most adults don't have a single friend of a different race as it happens on the next episode of NPR's codes which we're talking about making a maintaining friendships across racial lines and subscribe. We are back you're listening to it's been a minute from. NPR The show where we catch up on the week that was I am Sam Sanders here at NPR west. Joined by two guests in Studio. Vanessa Romo breaking news reporter for NPR. In Tom Drives back producer. An investigative reporter for NPR's embedded podcast. y'All it is time from my favorite game. WHO said that? I've never clapped with. I kind of liked that effects. I'M GONNA keep it up in the future. Yeah Yeah right you both have played before what is yours record on. WHO said that? There's no I I one once. I'd take care. grigsby bates bb well. This is very simple. You know how it goes. I share a quote from the week. You gotTa tell me who said it or guess what story Laurie. I'm talking about. The winner gets absolutely nothing. I quote here we go in the ultimate selfless act. He sacrificed himself to save his friends. Iran's when they needed him most famous mascot killed off this week the Messinger. That's really more the they can't kill the Messenger as a person I have no idea. It's Mr Pena Yes yes so let me explain so weird so that quote comes from the Mr Peanut twitter account that account announced this week that Mr Peanut the mascot for planters peanuts was killed off the tee off. Mr Pena let happened that he loses monocle then like something racing was all right so fun fact. Mr Subpoena is one hundred and four or was dead now But he's in a super bowl commercial in which he falls to his death trying to save other people The commercial features Mr Peanut and Matt Walsh and Wesley Snipes taking a road trip in the nut. Mobile they're singing. I just died in your arms when an animal on the road. It makes an mobile swerve. They're all hanging on for dear life in. Mr Peanut makes the ultimate sacrifice. Volunteers death in a fiery top nut bull appeal mobile. And so this is supposed to be an ad in the super bowl but because that's jump the shark. We saw the ad this week. Oh I totally I really missed the we have so many questions. Who is the friend that he C- he saves? Mister Snipes Duh. Okay Hey let me know Matt whilst lives lives also if you think about Messina and what he represents it's very sick and twisted. He is a rich peanut who encourages other folks to eat other poor peanuts that cannibalism these accountable. All Right Tom. You've got a point next quote. Oh tell me where this story comes from wear. This story is don't be surprised. If you see a guavas falling from the trees tonight. Florida south Florida as a news person. I gotTa tell you. The headline from Florida never disappoint. The thing is this is the recurring headline happens. Comes out so this quoque. I'M A tweet from the Miami Office of the National Weather Service. They were explaining. Basically during this cold spell. Happening in Miami sometimes iguanas bodies execute dormant in the winter and the cold So they can like preserve themselves but they go limp and dormant like fall out of the tree he sometimes because he's Guana the large. You gotta be careful ban. They can hurt you. Cats iguanas. I I gotta take a point away for that point. Colesville is like the thirties and forties for Miami which is cold for Miami and cold for the IGUANAS. They do they survive. Yeah I mean will you survive if Guana lands on your face. How heavy are these owners? Is Florida supersize doing it to save. It was the snipes crash all right. I think the game is tied. It is yes this contract final. Oh quote it's going to be hard for you all but it's going to be worth it. It is enjoy your mountain. Put your arch into it. Don't go bear. Oh I know this this. What was it almost pitched this story here? Mount the State of Utah. which apparently they wanted to put out prophylactics yes so the State of Utah was going to start distributing free condoms to help with STD's I wanNA pregnancies etc But after the new slogans were determined for the Condom wrappers the Governor of Utah said. They're a little bit too risque and he does not approve of sexual innuendo and he had the condoms recalled so the Salt Lake Tribune says quotes the Utah Department of Health will destroy all packaging with provocative Utah themed messages on thousands of condoms. It has been able to retrieve from partner agencies. Where are the ones that turned down o even crazier easier through multiple levels of approval?

"sanders" Discussed on Part of the Problem
"Article caught my eye there was an article at the new republic and the title is bernie sanders is not the left all right it's an article by sarah jones it's from last week over at the new republic so the title was bernie sanders is not the left his refusal to endorse ices abolition is the latest evidence that he's not the politician that many believe him to be so isn't that just kind of like typical left wing democratic politics where a position now that wasn't even an issue it was it wasn't even a thing six months ago but now if you're not on board with it you're not you're not really the politician that many believe you debate again it's it's like i said with the gay marriage thing if a democrat were were to run today with what obama's position on gay marriage was in two thousand eight two thousand nine two thousand ten if they were to run with that you're like your fascist basically that that's pretty crazy i mean it's pretty crazy that it's the intend years a position that was you know you were the hope and change and yes we can candidate and now you're literally hitler i don't know to me that seems like a pretty stark contrast and so it's it's interesting to try to follow this stuff and see where exactly the party's going and this is why a lot of people have made the observation that the left eats the left and anyway i actually think there's there's a big opportunity in there because more and more people once you're once the tool is that basically you're a fascist if you don't agree with us and more and more people start to be called the fascist they they don't like that and of course everyone particularly there's no better example than you know the the wing of the left that's known as like the social justice warriors but they set up a standard and this is true with more mainstream leftist as well but they set up a standard that like no one can actually live by and then then it's pretty difficult is pretty difficult for anybody to actually rise up to be a hero in in those conditions i mean you think about it with the metoo moment where they set up the standard that basically like if you've ever made a woman uncomfortable you're you're a predator and okay i mean look if the standard is something reasonable like have you ever you know groped a woman or have you ever like forced a woman to do something that she was saying she didn't wanna do or something like that then okay lots of guys can be good guys like well i've never done that you've never done that okay we're good guys but if the standard is you've ever made a woman uncomfortable or you've ever you know like some of these terms that they'll use like like sexual misconduct or something like that well you'll you'll be hard pressed to find a guy who's ever been single a straight guy who's ever been single who hasn't at least at some point maybe perhaps made a woman uncomfortable i mean i've had women make me uncomfortable many times in my life of course we're not like a you know straight men aren't like a a group that has victim status so no one cares about that but of course it's just it's this impossible standard and this is why you know more and more people if they continue this way are going to end up abandoning the left which i think would be a very good thing okay so here's the article once again the title bernie sanders is not the left his refusal to endorse ices abolition is the latest evidence that he's not the politician many believe him to be when cnn's jake tapper f asked bernie sanders on sunday if he wants to abolish the immigration and customs enforcement agency the senator was uncharacteristically vague quote i think that what we need is to create policies which deal with immigration in a rational way and a rational way is not locking children up in detention centers or separating them from their mothers what we need is trump to sit down with members of congress and work on a rational program which deals with the excuse me which deals with this serious issue so okay the only thing.
