The effort was named replicant. And headed. By andy rubin and executive who co founded the android mobile operating system over the years though. No news emerged from replicant.

A History of Women and the Olympics
"So a lot of the story has to do with french. Feminist alice milia and her women's world games which took place from nineteen twenty two to nineteen thirty four and led the olympics leading women compete in events on a much wider scale. Yeah there's a lot of acronyms in this one so bear with us. The women's world games were yaas response to the international olympic committee's or the international association of athletics. Ias disdain and vera. I wave feminists gaining ground and a lot of women wanting to compete in certain events. Like the eight hundred batur track event events that did not recognize women or have been deemed unfit for women. Yes this eight hundred meter track of it. We're going to get into it. But it caused a lot of controversy when it came to women competing so at this time people and particularly in this context europeans or already talking about gender equality the term. Feminism is thought to have been coined in the eighteen eighties by a french activist by the name of coubertin claire around the same time. Baron pierre do cooper thanh who was also. French founded the modern iteration of the olympics. And the i o dagobert on outright opposed women's participation in sports and this bled over into what events he believed women could and should compete in when it came to the olympics. Day cooper ten allegedly said that the olympics were created for quote the solemn and periodic exaltation of male athleticism with quote female applause as reward. Wow he went on to say quote it is. Indecent spectators should be exposed to the risk of seeing the body of a woman being smashed before there is besides no matter how tough sportswoman may be. Her organism is not cut out to sustain certain shocks her nerves rule. Her muscles nature wanted it that way again day. Cooperstown reason that grow as no women participated in the ancient games. There obviously was to be no place for them in the modern ones. Which just as a brief aside isn't the whole truth sat really the point. But he's wrong. In general yes so the nineteen hundred games or the first allowed women to compete though not officially sanctioned twenty two out of nine hundred ninety seven of the competitors or women and they competed in tennis golf sailing. Equestrian and croquet only golf and tennis. Had all women
How to Deal With A Lack of Passion in Your Job and Life
"If there is one problem that one on one coaching clients come to me with more than anything else. It's this problem. I don't feel passionate about my work. Or i want my work to be my passion. How do i do that. And we hear it all the time. Right this quote. From steve jobs is just one way but we hear all the time. If you love what you do you'll never work a day in your life and other things like that and that is a lovely idea. That's a lovely experiment and if it's what you're striving for men make it your goal i mean go for it but hear me out in this episode because i don't think that that necessarily has to be the case so in the united states we've talked about this in prior episodes where we've talked about role gulf meant this idea that our identity gets very wrapped up in our title and in the job that we do this particularly strong or something that happens in the united states. We tend to identify with our work and with our title more than other countries and other cultures. Do we also work really long hours. And so when you put those two things together the role that our workplace in our identity and also the amount of our life that are work takes up. We can almost forget that there's life outside of work or that there's opportunity to be passionate outside of work. We looked to this lack of passion in our lives and the first place we think to get it is from our job but is that the only place and that's the question. I wanna pose. I'm not saying that it's impossible. No one can be passionate about their work. That's definitely not true. But if you are not passionate about your job and there are real barriers in place for you to make a change or you're not even sure what direction to go just yet. I would offer that asking yourself the question of how might i be able to feel that passion or express that passion in ways outside of my job is a much more near term realistic way to get that passion.

The young boy his way they went prancing around pink and purple. We're wearing pink pussy cat hats. The ones worn at the women's march where madonna said. I thought many times the blount blowing up the white house. There is a cultural. It is very very real whether it is an attempt to teach our children that white skin color makes you inherently racist too feminine. There was there was nothing in that video that was not about feminising the male. That's what it was about. It's about deconstructing.

Japan's Population Problem
"The world's attention is going to be turning to japan soon because the olympic games are going to be ending. Is there a simple way to describe what life is like. Their japan is kind of the lifestyle superpower of the world. It's a very easy place to live at least on the surface. This is miyoko rich. She's the tokyo bureau chief for the new york times. And then i think it's when you did just a little bit blow. You see that there are a lot of problems. Some of them looming in the future on some of them very much there today and that makes it a place of somewhat cognitive business. Maybe like all societies. But i think japan because it looks so beautiful and so efficient and so fun especially in a place like tokyo or osaka okeyo on the surface. I think people don't realize what might be lurking beneath rate. So let's talk about one of those issues. Can you tell me a little bit about japan's demographic problems well the predominant issue is that it is rapidly aging. It's currently considered the oldest country in the world in terms of the proportion of the population. That's already over sixty five. It's approaching about thirty percents and it will be more than that in about ten years and the population has also been declining for the last decade. So there are a lot of old people and fewer and fewer young people. So it's just actually kind of hard for me to imagine life in a country where everyone is so old. I was kinda hoping that you can help me. Imagine it so. Let's say i'm a young woman. In japan maybe in the countryside or maybe in a city can you take me sort of on a walk. Like what do i do. I feel this happening around me. Well if you're a young woman in the countryside you're alone.

"I recently attended a local pop shop event in case you're not familiar with the term. A pop up shop sometimes referred to his flash retailing is a trend where an entrepreneur opens up a sales space for a short amount of time. Usually one day. The idea behind this tactic is to generate interest in your products. Make sales and engage your brand with potential customers however the ability to market effectively is a pain point for many small businesses and it was a recurring theme at this event in this episode. We discuss how to attract more customers to your business by understanding your competitive advantages in using your strengths to promote your brand. Stay with us your business. Transformation begins now. Welcome to the knowledge. Catalyst in this podcast. We help small business. Owners accelerate their growth by using knowledge as a strategic asset. Our show is focused on discovering hidden knowledge. Insights small business owners and entrepreneurs can use to build stronger customer relationships better products and increase profitability. If you're looking for innovative tools techniques and strategies to grow your business invest in your success with your host. Dr orlando's guilt in hello and welcome to episode four of the knowledge catalyst in this episode. We take a deeper look at the brand trust. Customer dynamic often misunderstood by small business owners exhibiting at events like weakened pop up shops before we begin it is important to note that pop up events present. Small business owners with a unique opportunity to directly interact with customers. Here is a typical scenario. A potential customer walks up to your booth and will you about your product or the company. At this point you will start to give your sales pitch upon completion of your presentation. The customer may have a few questions will thank you politely. And move to the next vendor. Does this sound familiar question. What value did the customer received from this interaction. A few business owners may reflect on the last discussion to see if they can improve their presentation while others will repeat the same sales pitch for the duration of the event. This interaction highlights the pain point. We touched on in the pre show introduction namely the ability to market effectively. So let's analyze this discussion in more detail. When a customer asks you about your product or company what they really want to know is why should they buy from you. First every prospect you interact with his providing you with valuable observational information and marketing insights like age ethnicity nationality gender income marital status and brand affinities from items like purses clothes jewelry and shoes. You can also gather high level inferences about their personality opinions attitudes and beliefs therefore before while giving your sales pitch you should engage prospects in a discussion to learn more about them in tailor your presentation. According to their wants or needs that emphasize the benefits they will receive using your products again. Remember your main focus should be on providing value second to build trust. You must demonstrate an understanding of products competitive with yours in substitutes. The customer may consider purchasing in lieu of buying from you. This is an important concept in a key. Part of building your brand knowing your competitive advantages and how your product is positioned relative to the competition will yield big dividends so what is a competitive advantage and more importantly. Why should you care a competitive advantage. As a capability or characteristic that enables a company to outperform the competition this allows a company to achieve higher profit margins and creates value for the company. A competitive advantage must be difficult if not impossible to duplicate. If it is easily copied or imitated it is not considered a sustainable competitive advantage in other words a competitive advantage differentiates your company from the competition. It contributes to the ability to set higher prices. Attract more customers and promotes brand loyalty. Establishing a competitive advantage is one of the most important goals for any company however finding or creating a competitive advantage challenging thus before a competitive advantage can be created. it is important to know the following one. You must be clear. On the benefit your product of service provides it must offer real value for example will the benefit offer convenience save money provide personal satisfaction prestige or security to what are the characteristics of your ideal customer and target market and finally who are your competitors. And what are they offering. When a small business goes to market highlighting. Its unique competitive advantages ensure your advantages are specific in not too vague for customers to appreciate for example. Don't promise customers. You will ship out their orders as fast as you can make the advantage clear and easy to grasp instead promised to ship all orders made before four thirty. Pm on the same day they were ordered and you have an advantage. Customers can easily understand. Here is another example. Saying you have the best. Customer service isn't going to translate into a competitive advantage however initiating a unique policy that directly benefits. Your customers will certainly count as a competitive advantage. And we'll be the reason people choose your business over your competitors the key to successfully gaining a competitive advantage as to make a clear concise an easily recognizable distinction between your business and others in your industry to be easily recognizable. The advantage must be demonstrable and easily proven to customers. This will build trust remember customers. Do not buy from people or companies. They do not trust keeping up with marketing trends and not being left behind is a vital aspect of creating a competitive advantage for example if your competitors are using mobile apps and mobile websites your business should also go mobile before. You're the only one who hasn't failing to go. Mobile could make it more difficult for you to attract new customers however if you launch mobile apps as well at a minimum it will help keep your business competitive. A well run. Business might identify multiple competitive advantages when developing a marketing strategy but be cautious about casting too wide a net and weakening the impact of the advantages. Identify the ones that will bring in the most money and focus on those. Of course the biggest mistake companies make is to promise a competitive advantage that they can't deliver this leads to unsatisfied customers. Who won't return not to mention the loss of potential new customers. If you received bad reviews often you're competing in an environment where advantages are slide. in subtle. your advantages may not be apparent or your offer maybe similar to the competition that for all intents and purposes. It's the same but even if that's the case you still have to answer the question posed earlier. Why should a customer buy from you. You need an edge something that triggers the all important purchase decision. So at this point you may wonder how can i create competitive advantages for my business. Here is a list of six common approaches. You can use to create a competitive advantage one. Focus on your online reputation. Today consumers compare reviews on most products and services before purchasing. If you're at the top of the list in terms of your ratings and review comments it gives you a strong competitive advantage. Reputation management is now a vital marketing tactic. Not only do you need to earn positive reviews with great service. You also need to make sure they appear across multiple review platforms google in particular conversely a negative review put. Small businesses at a distinct disadvantage. It's a problem that can jeopardize your business to get the most out of reviews elicit specific comments from customers that reflect the most important aspects of the value you deliver us testimonials on your website that feature names and ideally pictures of actual clients consumers today. Want to know what your customers have to say about you. They trust this content and they expect to find it. Make sure your top rated in your market number to develop a clear and specific value proposition. Your value proposition is where you most directly provide an answer to the question of why a consumer should choose you. This is where you make your case even if your service has basically the same as dozens of other providers you must create a message that distinguishes you from the competition. Maybe you have a slight price delivery advantage. It may come down to customer service. Perhaps you have a unique specialty or work better with a particular type of customer when you develop a value proposition. You answer the in spoken question on. Everyone's mind what's in it for me without this answer. You're just another face in the crowd number three. Be the best information resource. The internet is often called the information superhighway and consumers use it with a keanae to find businesses. That offer unbiased useful information. Informational content through blogs videos and social media gives you a competitive advantage in multiple ways. I when you fill information gaps. That help people solve a problem. You are in trust. People feel like you're doing them a favor and even feel a sense of obligation to work with you because you help them. For example appliance parts. Pros does an excellent job of providing information on their youtube channel. They provide clear. Do it yourself. Instructions offering information to support the use of their products. As a natural part of the service they provide take a look at your market or their information gaps that tend to cause hesitation with buyers. If there are new filled with the high quality useful information you create a powerful competitive advantage. Number four be likable. This is a competitive advantage. Few businesses consider but its impact is huge people. Bhai from people. they like. they're drawn to brands. They have a sense of affinity with the question. Businesses face has to use online marketing to create a likable presence. There have never been better ways to use marketing. Collateral to create a friendly relationship with prospective clients think no further than having facebook friends or the personal touch of instagram photos. Social media is a great opportunity for a business to express its personality. You can be personable. Funny even reverend if it's done properly if you can get people to laugh you've helped your sales 'cause it's also useful to create a voice for your website and other marketing collateral voices the personality or a part of your branding that lets visitors. No there are warm funny carrying people behind your business. Content the internet is full of dry uninspired business content most business owners think they must be dull to sound professional putting some personality into your content as an effective way to be more likable which is a big competitive advantage when surrounded by dull sales copy from your competitors number five segment your target audiences. Most smaller businesses have one marketing campaign that targets all their ideal customers. Notice the word one in the previous sentence. Small businesses can create a big competitive advantage by running multiple marketing campaigns. Marketing is not one size fits all people respond to content that is reflective of their lifestyles and specific to their needs in other words. If someone searches for healthy snacks for truckers. They want to see content that connects directly to that search. If a homeowner wants a deal on a water heater replacement they're more likely to convert on a landing page. That specifically has a deal on water heater installation. Likewise it's powerful to segment campaigns based on demographics if you're targeting baby boomers you won't do well with ads that feature people in their twenties. Smaller businesses typically skipped campaign segmentation because it requires more work in a larger marketing budget. Therefore it gives you a big competitive advantage when customer segmentation has done with precision and finally number six collect and use data to make informed decisions. One sure way to failure as to expend minimal effort setting up an advertising campaign. you can't set and forget your marketing and expect to be competitive digital activities. Leave a trail that marketing contract using data. You can identify what works. And what does not then use the data collected to refine your copy split test. Ads refine your target markets and measure conversion rates. The key takeaways from today's discussion are to use the pop up shop event as a data collection opportunity. By using the knowledge insights collected. You can identify create the competitive advantages which provide the most value to your customers. The pop up shop as also an excellent occasion to test and refine your marketing strategy. If you'd like to learn step by step how to create a competitive advantage for your business.

In Virginia, Military Veterans Take on Their Next Mission: Farming
"Almost half of America's farmers are planning to retire in the next five years, and it's not clear who will replace them. But a group in Alexandria may have a solution. They're working to introduce veterans to farming. As CBS national correspondent Chip Reid tells US vets and farmers have a lot in common. Jenny has camp spent 15 years as a United States Marine. Now she's a farmer with a focus on flowers. These are what I want. She learned the science and the art of farming here at Arcadia Farm in Alexandria, Virginia, on land once owned by George Washington. It's exhausting. It's hot. It's buggy, and it's the most satisfying and the happiest I've ever been. She began three years ago in Arcadia's part time veteran Farmer Reserve program that gives veterans and opportunity to decide if farming is for them. For her. It was a perfect fit. I think it's an incredible program for veterans transitioning from years of service into the next career, she now farms here full time and dreams of one day having a small farm of her own. Pamela Hess is executive director of Arcadia Farm and helped create the veteran farmer program. The goal is to give veterans an opportunity to earn a living in a new but surprisingly similar. Walk of life. They can work in all temperatures. They can carry very heavy loads. They're great at long term planning. They are not freaked out by crisis. Farmers and military folks have a very similar mindset when it comes to their work. Farming is a mission oriented business in the same way that military mission is you can't stop at five o'clock you stop when the mission is
The Diet Soda of Poker
"Even though it's zero calorie drink it actually does end up in long term leading to you. Consuming more calories more processed foods more refined sugars than you would. If you just didn't have it at all. So this idea of empty calories is one that i think is really interesting because i find that in poker these mindset platitudes that we put out. There are essentially the empty calories of poker. So when you are stressed when you get into spots where you're buried you don't feel good. The game is really overwhelming. You're having all these emotions and you lean on a mantra-like don't be results oriented or just be happy that you're getting it in good. These are ideas that you can fall into the trap of thinking okay. I've got it down now. Because i said my mantra. I said the thing that i need to say. I heard what i needed to hear when in reality there's all this other stuff going on inside you you've got all these big emotions you're angry or you're sad or you're scared about what's happening to you right now in this game and you're skipping over all of them just because you want to get to the end result of reminding yourself to not be enough feel the things that you are feeling right this moment and so this very much can lead to this response where maybe for the next five minutes or ten minutes or if you're particularly strong maybe an hour or two hours you're gonna feel okay you're gonna feel like okay. I've got it under control. Because i reminded myself of how i need to be approaching this mentally but it's empty because what's happened. Is you have not acknowledged the emotions that exist. You have not felt those feelings and so those emotions are just going to burst through and break down that wall and it's going to be even bigger and even worse than if you just felt those emotions in the first place so when you go straight to the mindset the framework the theory in the idea of what you think. You're supposed to be doing when in reality. What you need is presence and connection. You're actually just making things much worse in the long run and it's never going to take you to the place of being a person who can perform at a high level no matter what's going on around you you might be able to perform at a really high level when things are going really well or going pretty neutral but when things go terribly you're never going to be the person who has the level of emotional

"I wasn't coming from entrepreneurship. And i wasn't working in business at all. I was di jiang working on electronic music. And you know. I had this idea and it wasn't my field. It's just an idea. And so you assume you know there's probably something wrong here and it's a kind of prompt comes up a lot like funding so every project. I'd have i'd be like where. Can i get money for this. And so every time we would come up it would be like. Why doesn't this thing exists. Yeah and i'm usually pretty good with those things like you know. In a couple of days it will come to me. And i'm like of course and that just never happened. And so i just never let go in a way where it never let go of me. I kept feeling like this should exist ethic. That's kind of maybe the best way to say this should exist and maybe trista navy. That's what you were feeling as well with your project at certain point you kind of just feel like well. Maybe i need to make this happen for this to exist. I felt disrespected. And i felt we all deserve to be respected not only as people but also as consumer What should exist. Respect for me was respects in my retail experience when i walked on is respect to have advocation products. That do what you say. They're going to do. It's respect in terms of how we kind of build a company in a brand and the people that are employed within it. As for me you know started as a frustration. I felt disrespected. And the result of those who things may be recognized should and we went right after.

Um, of in favor of the different report foreign proposals that they're listening to, so they're going to do the pros and the cons and I, the witnesses that they have are hearing from by and large. I think the majority of them have been against core packing, including Left of centre professors from Harvard, like Noah Feldman and from Duke, like Neil Siegel. Um, now there's been some Ford it but mostly they've been against it where I think they're going to see more pros than cons, and I already get that sense from listening to their questioning is on court is on term limits. Because I would say more a majority of people. They're hearing from kind of favorite term Memphis, and I think that's even true. Some of the commissioners so they're going to get you're not going to get a recommendation. You're going to get a balance. You're going to get a report that shows pros and cons and there is like there are like seven or eight right of center originalist scholars on this commission Which is kind of how I got to testify out of how many Out of 30 or more. I mean, it's it's imbalanced. But look, there's more balance on this commission. And there is at the Georgetown law School. I can tell you Well, yeah, there's more balance at the, uh, on the in the polar Bureau and Communist China than there is any. Now let me ask you You're
CDC Exposed in Explosive VAERS Coverup
"Go to cdc dot gov and this is as of today all the sudden. The numbers in the database has skyrocketed by over six thousand overnight. Now we do not know if these are backlogged. Adverse event reporting. We don't know this happened last week. We don't know. But i'm gonna read from our government's website. Cdc dot gov reports of death after the co vaccine are rare. Now let me stop. There is rare. A scientific term rare a by definition subjective term. Rare is to mean anything for anyone. One percent could be rare. Half of one percent could be rare continues by saying during this time. There's the vaccine. Adverse event reporting system has received twelve thousand three hundred and thirteen reports of death among people who received the vaccine. So let me get this straight twelve thousand. Three hundred. Thirteen deaths after getting the vaccine. Now they say that the reports of adverse events do not necessarily mean that the vaccine caused a health problem so that's up for you to decide the causation correlation for example. Who are we to say. That simone the nineteen year old black girl going to north western perfectly healthy. She gets the second dose of modern shot. She dies of a heart complication. Six weeks later normal up for you to decide. Is it normal. That the johnson and johnson vaccine now has new guidance and the federal government that could result in a rare nerve disease. That's up for you to decide. Now we're simply asking questions here but when you dare ask questions against a massive kind of inter institutional strategy you come under unprecedented backlash and so. Here's a question. I'm going to reiterate why all of a sudden this late night sneaky data dump of another six thousand deaths into the vaccine adverse event reporting system.
Torrential Downpour Continues in China's 'Once-in-5,000-Year Rainstorm'
"Rains are pummeling central China in Henan Province, a year's worth of water. Some two ft fell on the provincial capital Zhangzhou in just three days this week, and it is still coming down. Flights are suspended so far, the government says 25 people have died. NPR China Affairs correspondent John Roach has more. The water fell hard and fast in Zhangzhou, a city of more than 12 million, and the sewers couldn't keep up. In this video posted online, a group of men pull a woman to safety as they battle waist high brown water pouring down the street like a swollen river. According to state media. 12 of the dead drowned when the subway system flooded. State broadcaster CCTV interviewed a man caught underground when water poured in part of the people around us were clenching the railings next to the tunnel. There were about a dozen of us crawling together. The water level rose through our shooter's several of us Han there including me and the child. The two of us almost gave up because we were exhausted. Do Liang Chen is an expert on China's climate at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden. He says the city should have reacted more quickly. But I was surprised anyway that this time the subway were still operating, he says several factors set off what some Chinese scientists are calling a once in 5000 year event. There's a typhoon approaching the Chinese coast. It's hundreds of miles from Kunin, but already bringing water from the sea over land. Is also persistent high pressure over the Pacific that's pushing wind from the sea toward China and the topography of the region has what he calls a channeling effect. And Jen says this Chinese rainstorm has something in common with the rain that's been hammering Europe leaving more than 120 people dead there. What a Weber in general in the atmosphere is increasing. Because of global warming and more water in the air means more rainfall a lot more. In some cases, China has a good system. In terms of the early warning, Chen says China appears better prepared than Europe for this kind of

I think if the government doesn't help them out that is the coin the thing that people remember for the rest of their boating lives. That's the danger for the government. I think of the cladding scandal. I think the real question is the government needs to find a way to make. The developers must must back quite a lot of the responsibility for this basically solve the problem that other any bright ideas in the party for how to solve the housing crisis if it's not an algorithm is there anything else. That's on the pipeline. This is the problem right toys compound. Their problems minister was lamenting the lots of these. Tory sees overcoming marshall because the housing tenure in that is changing but when thou plans to build more homes the which create more homeowners in these places these mp's object and often very different because their existing vote doesn't want it so there is that there is a mismatch between what the existing vote wants. And what the future vote once and the problem is the revisit anyways with their existing vote which makes only in the shortest possible timeframe because ultimately. If you don't build more houses you get. What is beginning to happen in london weather. The people who rent privately don't vote tory. In the same way the homeowners do and the constituency skews against. There's a danger for the truth. We didn't deal with this.

How important is whoever sets in the london. Narrow seat jobs mentioned former mayor's obviously the current prime minister but can levinson's exactly doing much with his political career at the moment. Does it really matter who is in charge. I think as james says in his column ultimately to be the party in power. London is the capital. And i think that any policy that gives up ambitions of winning in the capital falcon is a economic engine of the country. The level up agendas going to change that. I don't see. I think it is a good thing if you can spread this around. But i didn't. We should underestimate the importance of the capital city. Just because it can be a bit at unfashionable to or you know you. You've seen as london. As a result of that. And i think in terms of i suppose the road itself look. I think london mayor has limited house. I think siddiq khan and away shouldn't be such a safe bet going in selection because if you his record she i think things like homebuilding. That hasn't actually much progress. The sadique kahn. Allies say in response to the ultimate. Well they didn't have the powers that she got blocked. Because of this so i think that is a railway. You perhaps can't do as much as you might think you could do. Critics of boris johnson. Like to make the point that yes. He was going to london mayor but london mayor de much patch prime ministers. He's gonna struggle prime minister. But i think ultimately it's half city and i think that if you are the governing policy you clearly want to have a amid match to match that james and katie.

Secon had a stellar record as mad. I think it's remarkable. How little he has achieved when you can also wants deacon don people struggled to name anything even as catching pilots like gesture on the street. I mean that has come to nothing. And i think this is an odd thing which is cons. Record is not impressive but he looks like he is coasting to victory in. What will be a very low turnout election. Do you think it's going to very unimpressive list of twenty candidates stylings of job. You would think that given the lost maryland is now. The prime minister would have been more ambitious people's more ambitious types. And i think it reflects that there is now dangerous gonna facism into resolve. Call mccown win in london in less than a decade ago to remind reelected in london. But i think there's lots of things causing the tories province near the city. Quite heavily to remain demographics skew against choice. But i think the biggest problem is that the foreign homeownership particularly mona to crucial thirty five to forty four year old. Demographic if you've been in that when moore bachelor office in one thousand nine hundred sixty nine percent of out group owned that is now under fifty percent on the less than half. And i think that is what is causing the tories. Their big problem in london gets a preview of what happens to them. When the property-owning democracy seems the property ladder seemed out of reach those crucial swing voters so what housing crisis in more detail. And because i've got opinions on that one but katie firstly just talk about the tory candidate shawn bailey. Why has he failed to get cut. Three midler are few reasons. I mean he was announced fairly early on even pre pandemic idea was that he would have a long lead up to introduce yourself to the public biting lithium plenty of times. He has introduced himself to the public. And it's been known official kick back various comments. He's made but also. I think that it's been an incredibly long campaign partly because of the pandemic the point that's been hard to keep the level of energy up so a while ago we had restricted in the race. He was an independent cancer. And i think that there is a sense that he could do fatty while not i think. City conwell but potentially poll batsman sean bailey. But he just couldn't stay in the race for long periods. So i think to be shown. Pelley i shouldn't let the races is tricky for any candidate. He isn't the incumbent. And i think that the whole time shown baby has been the candidate. He's been facing reports and rumors actually birsh onto just not want him to be the candidate. Read that there are lots of doubts about him. And this is also someone who's tried to be an mp powerful. I think there is a candidate problem in the sense that this person has had plenty of negative press. Anything is just about who the candidate is. I think there is a wide issue in terms of whether tories them into this race. And if you think back to the last mayoral election it was that goldsmith and that was a disaster..

The pennsylvania republican party twice appealed to the supreme court the second time the court declined to expedite the case but did not rule out hearing after the election on friday in response to her request from pennsylvania.

Pennsylvania attorney general josh shapiro whose office is representing. The state at the supreme court was undeterred. By the prospects of future litigation. We have followed the laws here in the commonwealth legal eligible votes are being tallied and we will respect. The will of the people he said should further litigation come. We will respond to it. And we will protect the people of pennsylvania here too however the number of ballots in question does not appear to be enough to change. The outcome hastened said that even if the supreme court takes up the case. The number of ballots involved is very small compared to the likely biden. Victory so why pursue legal strategy. That seems so clearly destined to fail for trump some observers say the goal may not be to win the election so much as to cast a pall of uncertainty over the results thereby encouraging the perception however unfounded that he is a victim of fraud and remains the rightful leader of his fervent base. This is all looking increasingly like disinformation through litigation rather than plausible legal claims says joshua seltzer executive director of the institute for constitutional advocacy and protection at georgetown law. If that is trump's strategy it could prove costly for a historically polarized country. It won't get him the votes he needs for a second term but it will ensure the divisions he exacerbated will be harder to undo when he inevitably leaves office..

"I wherever you get your podcasts. President trump can't sue his way to a second term why he is trying anyway by elena abramson shortly after the associated press projected. That joe biden would win enough electoral college votes to defeat president. Donald trump trump released a statement saying that his campaign would go to court. Monday to fight the outcome. Networks don't get decide elections. Trump's personal attorney rudy. Giuliani said later at a precedent at a landscaping company in philadelphia courts. Do that is of course. Not the case. With the notable exception of the two thousand presidential race which was effectively decided by the supreme court in bush v gore it is voters who decide elections and that legal experts say is the main flaw with trump's strategy biden is one too many votes for the trump campaign to mount any legal challenge. That would actually change the outcome for an election to be successfully. Litigated experts say the margins between the candidates have to be exceedingly. Close the dispute between george w bush al gore decades ago. For example hinged on just five hundred thirty seven votes in florida election litigation is only consequential says nathaniel priscilla a professor at stanford law school if the number of contested ballots exceeds the margin of victory as of november seventh biden is leading trump by over four million votes according to the associated press the state by state count that determines the electoral college. Count is even more daunting for the president biden. Leads trump thirty five thousand votes in pennsylvania. Twenty five thousand seven hundred in nevada. Twenty thousand five hundred arizona and seven thousand two hundred fifty and georgia trump needed victories in nearly all of these states to amass two hundred seventy electoral votes and the associated. Press has called everyone but georgia in favor of biden other outlets have withheld arizona for biden recount. Laws vary by state but in every state except georgia. The margins appear too large for the states to automatically issue one. The campaign has other. Legal options beyond recounts but experts. Say those are also unlikely to succeed. The trump team can for example contest the validity of the remaining ballots that have yet to be counted or they can sue to get some ballots thrown out on the basis that they were filled out unlawfully so far record on both counts is not encouraging for the president prior to the election. Republicans in texas including an activist and a local legislator tried to get ballots thrown out in harris county where they argued that nearly one hundred thirty thousand ballots cast at a drive through polling location. Were unconstitutional that argument did not pass muster in either state or federal courts in nevada..

"Okay. So let's get into. Kind of funnier moment here, and then we're going to get into some serious stuff towards the laugh in the whole time. Well, this part particularly like really really cracked me up one because I was messing with Biden after. Play Plant I. All right. WHO's in the audience? I'm the least racist person in this room. Okay. Vice. President, Biden, let me ask you very quickly and then have a follow up question for you. Abraham. Lincoln. Here's one of the most racist presidents we've had in modern history he pours. All right. So I'm so so of course you know and I got fact checked for it no, I'm just kidding. But I said I said I said. You because right before that moment Joe Biden had said I'm Joe Biden you're debating Joe. Biden, I'm Joe Biden and then he turned right back around and says Abraham Lincoln over here. So. Biden. Even know who he's debating. But. But but but let's talk about that statement really quick here. Okay Abraham Lincoln over here is the most racist president in History Woodrow Wilson. Okay I'm pretty sure. And don't count me on the exact number but I know at least the first three. But I wanted to say ten, the first twelve presidents owned slaves at some point in time. Okay. Now Akin I am not I. Am Not Making a joke of slavery at all I'm just saying, I'm pretty sure Donald. Trump ain't ever owned slaves. Yeah. So to make the statement. That Abraham. Lincoln over especially a blanket you kidding me. A horrible thing imagine if we had David. Duke. As the president of the KKK guy and he's like we need to help out the black community like you know opportunity zones and Lewis black unemployment be so confusing the wait are racist again are you helping them out the fact checkers and the social media bias is staggering to me because if trump had said that reversed? The the fact check would be like There's no evidence to show that Joe. Biden. Is the most racist President in History This is misleading. Lockup are this is this is partly faults Blah Blah Blah Blah. Blah Blah. Let's get into some more serious about the debate. Yeah. Real quick about Abe. Lincoln, you know he said I may. Have done more for the black community than possibly even Abe Lincoln I know a lot of people who have been out of shape over that. But think about what Abe Lincolns said. He said if I could end the war without free a single slave I would so yes, great president freed the slaves again but context there hold on context of saying that is not because Abraham Lincoln was pro slaves it's because Abraham Lincoln. That there probably was half of the country that would in fact, go to war over that. Right. And so just again, context I agree with what you're saying you know Abraham Lincoln wasn't just I don't give a crap what y'all say this is what we're debt. That's not the way it happened but Abraham Lincoln you know when he said that again, this is this is where we get in trouble as a society is we read things context one of the biggest things as a Christian that they teach you when you actually start trying to learn the Bible is context is very important. Because when people write certain things when they say certain things at certain times if you don't understand the context and you're not really going to understand what it is, they meant when they said sure and that's where we find ourselves today. That's where we have the biggest issues is people will. Take and I'm talking about things that people have said numb policies. We'll get into policies here in just a minute. Crime Bill Anyway. But things people say there are context around a lot of things not everything but a lot of things you know who the most racist president of all time was. It was the president who Donna Brazile the debate was over who she said was her favourite president and that's Lyndon B Johnson. No. One has done more harm to the black community and said worse things than the guy who did the civil rights? Act Who ruin the black family again I mean you know if we're being truly honest here. Okay. George Washington all right. The the main person who is responsible for the fact of there would be no king are right and that a president should only have two terms that no person should have power for forever. George Watson had slaves and George. Washington. Also manipulated the system. It said that if you were in Pennsylvania's a slave for so many consecutive and and and I don't know it one hundred percent what the days are winks was seven years or something seven years. Well, he would know right before us today. President for eight years anyway. I. Don't know the exact time but he would literally wait until like the last three days and then he would trimmings this out and so again, I'm not saying that that is okay at all, it was horrible but. America is not without sin and this this leads into something that Joe Biden said before the debate. Last thing last thing I have to say it is not A. It's not a mark against America. It's not like a huge scar that America holds its scar that the world hold America's shed. Yes. We got rid of IT and Africa the Middle East they're still doing exactly. Okay. So. That that's a very good point. So up until that point in history when America was created slavery was just Thang crossed the world. Also just across the world if you want war, you would declare king and you would implement the same dictatorship implementations, right. So the first thing America did differently up until that point in time is they WANNA war and they decided to give the the power back to the people. And then within ninety years or so they said, you know what we're still not it's still not right we gotta we gotta fix it still and I think again context people whether you believe the world has been around for a couple thousand years you believe the world's been around for millions of years or whatever it is America's only two hundred and forty something years old and look what we've done in two hundred and forty some odd years like president. Yeah. Literally was the one before this one, a black president you got..

"Well, we'RE NOT GONNA take taxes now. No you'RE GONNA have to pick up the slack of those people picking up and leaving like Texas and Florida and places they'll have state income tax. Sanjay, this is where people don't understand. Okay. It may not be immediate. You may not feel it year one. Year two, year three, you're going to start to figure it out real freaking quick, and again, this always happens in the blue states and leads to the high poverty, high crime low education, and before we get to the next sponsor, a part of my opinion and candice would probably agree is that the main problem with these with these blue cities that are in poverty is because The Democratic officials promise all this welfare programs that nothing has changed in fifty years. So if you're a you know African American kid in a you know low income neighborhood the Democrats don't give you school choice you have to go to the school that you're assigned to right and a lot of education and fatherless-ness is the main issues in the African American home. So with school choice what trump did they now have more options to get better educations and trump still racist I just don't understand that why didn't Biden do that and that that was my favorite thing trump said the whole night why didn't you do any of this in the past eight years? Yeah. No, I agree. Sure and so all right. So again, we've got a lot of talk about. So let's get into another spot. Leave. Okay. People that like wine talk about drinking from. Like I was doing last night. There was a debate in my older age I have gotten into where I like a glass of wine every once in a while, I'm white wine Kinda guy, Jake's red wine can a guy I leaf is a wine.

"Whole human. Word Stop Talking. Now I immediately saw this tweet. Like this has got to be just a moron lives in their basement. So I go to their twitter page, and of course, at the very top it's a Biden Harris banner but this person has almost twelve thousand followers and I want okay. Well, what does this person do? Guesses. Professor. Corporate Attorney and Investment Advisor Georgia state representative what this person is an attorney. And Investment Advisor that shows the the on the education that the left has they they. They're morally superior and they say, we gotta save these kids. You know from the wolves and coyotes this person graduated from law school. Think about that for you know I used to think there's no way I could be a lawyer because there's no way I could pass the bar I starting. To rethink maybe I, should. Schools apparently easy. Maybe actually go. Look Man Okay. If you don't know what a coyote is, you shouldn't become insight on the Soviets. So let's look at this. Let's just do basic research as we do this. All right I'm typing and Coyote. And the deal here Let's see. Let's go coyote definition I. Guess if you don't know what that is, then you shouldn't be talking about immigration. Okay. Literally you type in Coyote definition on the Internet, it takes to the dictionary. The number one thing is a wild dog that resembles a wolf, the number two thing a person who smuggles Latin Americans across the US border typically for a high fee. Are we serious right now like come on people. What's worse is the tens of thousands of hundreds of tweets in regards to the fact I can't believe Donald Trump's so um he thinks coyotes are dragging. Thinking about how dumb she has to be in a lot of people think about. Deleted it can you do it if trump actually said like? You Know Jaguars that are. Dragging human babies in their mouth. Trump what but no he knows what he's talking about and those people are evil and they're only trying to make money with these kids. These are the people. These are the people that are voting for Biden. Okay. Yeah, and again, this is the audio version. So we can say whatever the CRAP WE WANNA say. So I'm going to tell you the truth Sason, the people who vote for Democrats are stupid. They just aren't here steady. You may be book smart like I have a degree from Harvard University you can still be stupid and have a degree. Their moral compass might be off a little bit which makes you stupid. Okay. If you don't have a moral. Okay. How many? How many? Truly like like just just brilliant. Amazingly smart social skilled people. Do you know that? Their moral compass is just horrible. Maybe a handful one, two percent. Massive under a massive like crime lords and stuff maybe. But as a general rule, if you don't have some kind of moral compass guideline, you probably not the most smartest person you're probably those people that think that there's you know infinite amount of genders and this other kind of stuff. Do you see you see that video of the Biden supporter? He says I'm not one of those I love Joe Biden you know Blah Blah. Blah I`ma settle for Biden voter and he straight up says. I'm voting, for Joe, Biden because I don't want trump and that to me like man what kind of life do you have is an American? If that's that's what your vote is like we have who I want in here. You know. So I just have to vote for Joe even if it means destroying the country, it's better than trump because clearly you know our country was destroyed by trump he didn't do anything good Absa. Yeah absolutely. Anyway. Okay. So so that was a little funny. Little funny thing I've found. But yeah, I it is. It is terrifying to me. That, these are the people. I mean think about it. They've got kids they drive cars. They're out in general public around normal people these people should be like tagged. This. I mean they should be like. Wow. Stuff and I realized that people say dumb things. Okay. I get it. Sometimes things just blurt out even a list of she's not here she asked one time what the difference between the cheeseburger and the base, the Bacon cheeseburger was. And I just kind of looked at her. I realized people say dumb things sometimes. Okay I, get it. But the tweets still up there like this chick has to know that she's a moron because he point I think she does now and it's still up there. It's not like she tweeted immediately we're all crap. Yeah, I'm a moron deleted but. No it's still up there and She's proud of it plan those coyotes, the human coyotes, rape, ninety percent of all the women across the border. So are you worried about? The children again, let's talk about these five, hundred, forty, five kids at the same time. Again, we are realist on this show. Do you have any idea how many millions of people try to come across the border every single year and we're talking about five hundred and forty five kids at the end of the day look that of course. That's. Inside of us as moral people, no one wants to see bad things happen to children and we take care of those and we take care and that's something Donald Trump says, he's like these children are taking care of they are they are well-fed they've got. They've got playtime built a cages job and then and then yes. Okay. So that's the biggest thing Joe Biden. Tack in like these children are in. In these putting people in cages, separating people at Bar, and then Donald Trump of course since we're talking about immigration right the second he goes on the offensive and he talks about. who built the cages who built the cage? It's Joe who built the cages of which Joe Biden ever answered K. pivoted right now. Here's the thing that I loved that Donald Trump did, and this may be something that not many people picked up but I picked up on it because we're in the social media world. Donald trump brings up the cages and he talks about. How the cages started was with a viral. Pitcher Okay and it was a picture that they said, look what Donald Trump is doing to children at the border, put them in cages. Those before fact, checkers I guess because nobody fact check. And then it turned out that that photo was actually taken. During the Obama Administration? Whoops. And it was in fact, the Obama Biden administration that built the cages and put all those people in the cages. Now this may not be new news. Most people know this but I thought it was interesting that Donald Trump brought up the fact that it was actually viral picture on social media that started this and then it got debunked. Yeah. But one thing that I will say is that every liberal outlet and democratic outlet and liberal person celebrity or whatever that shared that picture. FACEBOOK hasn't gone back says and said, this has actually been proven false. So you've shared false information we're GONNA Danger Accountant You know what? Trump's dude you know what trump did though he when he got into office, he saw those facilities and he said this is ridiculous. We need more money for these facilities. So his wall proposal I think it was three billion dollars. A lot of that money was to renovate these facilities at the kids are sitting in your and the Democrats said, no, they said we don't WanNa Wall but what about the help for these kids? nope not Nancy Pelosi's fault there's still kids. Again. All right this rolls into my next topic. What you just said before we do that we gotta tell you go check out.
"second term" Discussed on Vox's The Weeds
"The entire Republican base has been persuaded that Donald trump the entire Republican party establishment has been persuaded that Donald Trump is more popular than they are individually or collectively, and therefore you know they need to cling to him to stay in power but what? I think is missing from the assumption that trump because he has exhibited very little interest in what he could get done if reelected isn't going to is going to somehow. Get Out of the and let the Conservatives do their thing. The reason I'm thinking about that is because. A lot of the stuff that generally happens in a second term, you know if at legislative agenda gets thwarted or lake, once the president is obviously a lame duck or any of that happens in terms of the kind of regulatory things take a long time to develop. So might not have gotten done in the first term you know may not even be able to get to fully finished in the second term, but are the occasion to not just undo what the last guy did to the extent that that's legally feasible but actually find places in the text where. You can pull policy toward you know toward idiological goals for administrations to come. That's going to require motivated people in those roles, and we know that Donald Trump isn't very keen on getting people permanently appointed. He actually sees it as an asset to have people continuing to serve in acting circumstances. Even when that means, he has to shuffle them around or you know keep switching them out with other people or put people in charge of agencies whose internal functions they don't necessarily understand. So what I'm wondering really is how much opportunity cost is there if you are committed to deregulation. Of having a bunch of people who don't necessarily see this this appointed position as permanent, who may not have the understanding of the agency to be able to get in there on day one and get things going, and you may not have the commitment to the exact same agenda items that whatever their predecessor you had. What's the opportunity costs of that versus a standard issue deregulatory? You know w Bush second term kind of administration. I think that that's something that really isn't fully understood partly because we don't have the counterfactual of like a standard Republican promising to staff up to actually step executive branch but it is something that you know for all of the While there is certainly something to be said for it's better for conservatives to have nobody in the executive branch and appointed positions than it would be for liberals to have nobody in the executive branch and appointed positions because it means that thing that like bad the things that they would consider overly activists can't get done. That you? Are. Giving up any potential for in an events opposite way of the were staffing up the bench. Even if Democrats win, you know even if Democrats sweep and twenty twenty, there's going to be an impediment to them enacting their agenda. They're leaving that on the table or they could be leaving that on the table unless there's either a radically different approach to appointments in the second term or a push from conservative. Elites to actually take that stuff more seriously you know the regulatory issues vary quite a bit across domains right and you know trump over. Republicans. Are Pretty unified around the idea that we need less strict environmental regulation and sort of just less stringent enforcement of of most aspects of federal labor law What's been interesting is that in bill, bar at the Justice Department trump has found cabinet secretary who is very like engaged you know an and doing things but also pretty enthusiastic about sort of turning some of trump's mouth noises into policy, and so that's involved both. So Racial Discrimination Litigation Against Yale, it which I think would have implications going forward right. So they charge that Yale's admissions policies discriminate against Asian people against white people, and this could conceivably be used as a much broader sort of legal theory against A lot of I guess what we now call diversity equity and inclusion initiatives at at various companies going forward and that would not be a deregulatory impulse right? That would be like affirmative conservative regulation of the kind of racial space in right now college admissions. But conceivably a lot of aspects of of employment and the Justice Department also did a lawsuit anti-trust lawsuit against Google which was filed the morning that we recorded. I've only had a very superficial look at it up. But what's interesting is that it is not packed with random conservative hobbyhorses like it's a real antitrust complaint based on sort of long standing complaints about Google from smaller Internet companies. which is both. It's it's different from the kind of normal trump thing where you have like one layer of incredibly orthodox conservative governance and another layer of weird tweets about stuff. It's like it seems like trump wanted more antitrust scrutiny of big technology companies and instead of scrutiny of the company trump was maddest about or scrutiny. That's about the thing that trump is maddest about it is the thing that. Antitrust attorneys had long. Told me was the most plausible tech antitrust case ever gets now happening and it's weird. It's only Republican attorneys general have signed onto the suit no Democrats have. So it's like you keep thinking you keep looking for some kind of weird hide the ball thing and it's about how Steve Bannon got shadow band up as far as I can tell like it's it's not. Straight up they let loose the anti-trust lawyers on the technology sector because that is the thing that trump had been saying they should do and I, don't really know how to think about the allegations of that going forward. It's it's. It's I. Tell me here is the question here is. Do you take the Rod Rosenstein approach to firing Jim Komi or do you take the Donald Trump talking to lester holt approach to firing jim coming right like that's an. There're this is this is not the first time that this administration has gone after someone you were expecting them to go after for reasons that facially are a lot more within the rules of the game. Then the thing that they wanted them to go after them for, and obviously there is an upside to that when it comes to your likelihood of success at going after that target at that time. But there's a downside if you actually want to for example, change the norms that the FBI shouldn't go after your political opponents just because they're your political opponents or if you want to change antitrust law to. To force them to force major tech companies as a general rule to treat to. Be More cautious about trying to affirmatively promote political balance or what have you. That's obviously particularly relevant in the DOJ context because that's where you're making arguments for a judge. But then what the judge does is precedent is the other thing I was thinking about here would be the Time Warner merger. From the from twenty. Right where like it was another case of the arguments that were getting made in court sounded totally independent of the pope, the allegations that there was some political interference There's a limited list of people like. That Donald Trump might have personal animosity toward that are who's for, which is animosity is distinct from conservative defer from Lake from grievances that can be ideologically framed easily..
"second term" Discussed on Vox's The Weeds
"And Justice Alito has shown some sympathy for that viewpoint i. don't think we really know what Barrett will say when she becomes a justice but this is the sort of frontier of Conservative jurisprudence that there has not e-. It's sporadically liberals one. These cases there has clearly not been by Giardi for throwing out well established. Until like an interesting moment in the hearings came Web Barrett wouldn't say that she felt Medicare was clearly constitutional. She wouldn't say that she thought Brown v Board of Education was rightly decided. Now what she said which I think is true is that like there isn't going to be litigation about those subjects you know like like you don't need to like you as a journalist like don't sit here like white knuckling that the Supreme Court is GonNa. Okay. Formal segregation in public schools but it leaves the door open to as you put more and. More Conservative appointees on the bench some of them are much more Thomas ask in their willingness to say like this whole past hundred years of jurisprudence was wrong and we need a whole different approach and you will see more influence of that particular if it goes from six to seven conservative appointees particularly as you get cases at the circuit courts that Sorta don't get elevated out of there and you know I don't know like I I I don't want to tell people scare stories to get them up at night 'cause I. think that's A. Poor use of our time. But like this is an idea that's out right I mean, the reason that the kind of Thomas Trajectory in particular is relevant is. Both because idiological early the. Kind of Thomas. Strain of conservatism is in fact distinct as you were saying, but also because there are network effects here that. Thomas has become a feeder into both federal judiciary. There are a lot of Thomas Clerks that are that have been getting nominations over the last four years and into the trump administration and given the. Emphasis that we know President Donald Trump places on personal loyalty. It's not unreasonable and of course, the fact that Clarence Thomas his wife is a very. Vocal and influential conservative activists. It's not unreasonable to think that there is a relationship between those two and that you know should trump be reelected. We will continue to see an influx of more judges. You Clarence Thomas personally likes getting staffed into the lower courts. The flip side of the whole judges broadly thing though is the conservative enthusiasm for judges just I mean certainly before the. Amy Conybeare it. It's not that there was a huge groundswell and we've discussed this in the past of enthusiasm for trump in twenty twenty because he had put. In Cavanaugh on the bench there there was a certain there. There was certainly an extent to which that was seen as the tip of the iceberg of his achievement, but the whole the treatment was the totality of the judicial appointments that have been made and as I think a lot of our listeners probably at least dimly aware the. Main Reason Donald. Trump was able to put so many judges on Federal District and circuit courts in his first term was that there was an artificial shortage of. Federal judges because Mitch McConnell had blocked. So many Obama nominations in the last couple of years of his term, and so that kind of thing is a good example of. A first term accomplishments that may or may not be wholly transmit with the second term yes. There will continue to be judicial openings on the other hand kind of by definition you're going to have fewer judicial openings after a four year period in which he were confirming judges at full speed than you did after a four year period where you are confirming few judges as possible and that's kind of what interests me about. The things that are being used to argue for a second trump term is that they're not necessarily cases of. You know we have a they're not necessarily things that you would reasonably expect to see. You know an administration be better at in its second term that's first term. There's not so much of the like. Oh now that we more fully understand the way, the executive branch works some of the regulations that got. That got overruled because we didn't follow the Administrative Procedures Act will do better at those. What you're seeing is a certain extent of well. Our side has been in power and our side being in power you know has good downstream effects such as judicial appointments. The most important thing we can do is keep the ball for four more years and that tone appears to overwhelm any. Campaigning, on what exactly Donald Trump hopes to accomplish part of that does appear to be because Donald Trump, himself is less interested in what he would accomplish substantively than in just continuing to kind of be the person with the megaphone whenever he asks for it but. Is For all of the efforts to kind of. Things around trump supplement supplementary for all of the, you know putting Mike Pence on the trail and you know. prepping him for his debate with Kamala Harris. There are big ticket second item accomplishments that it's possible to point to, and that's that's not just like isn't I think that it's you know it would be unfair to blame ourselves as the media too much either for two thousand, sixteen or twenty twenty in that regard because when a campaign isn't necessarily running on signature. Policy proposals or when the proposals they're running on our obviously legislative in nature, and therefore, it would be arguably misleading to focus on them as things that would happen if this were elected, it can be very difficult to actually. With any reasonable certainty here's what we can expect to happen in two, thousand, twenty, one through twenty four. If this person is you know becomes turvy elected office. So I just wanted to like ping pong back to to dera of it though because you you mentioned you know Administrative Procedure Act and. There's just a gap between like campaign talk and governance, and so I've been struck because it's been bad for my book promotion that trump has just like stopped talking about immigration as a political issue which used to be really central to him. But at least as I under its been fascinating, also you get back to that but it's been interesting because I went through I'm working on a piece about. Trump's campaign and you go through voter priorities and immigration has like fallen off a bridge in comparison as to what.
"second term" Discussed on On Point with Tom Ashbrook | Podcasts
"He gave in Riyadh or like he's given in Europe at different times of his presidency. If I remember his his convention speech three and half years ago, four years ago was also off teleprompter. It was a fairly dark message and that is I. Think one of the real risks that they face if he wants to give an American carnage style speech that it's different when you are. Just coming into office or when you're the the outside of this running he's now the incumbent. It's a different type of race. It's one of the challenges that I think they've they found in trying to run a twenty sixteen style campaign in twenty twenty when you're the incumbent, he still anti-establishment he's still an outsider and to some extent but he's responsible for what's happened over the last four years. and. So about a about that American carnage speech I, mean that was in reference to both. The economic devastation that we've seen in. Various parts of the United States and also to crime. That's not something we've talked about in this conversation yet but the president has definitely been active on his twitter feed seems like he's going to want to talk about his perceptions of crime a lot. Do you WanNa talk about that for a second? Yeah actually think there are two things that you didn't see brought up in the Democratic convention that are GonNa come up consistently over the next four nights at the first is what's happening in our cities. And this is this is not just Portland, which is literally seeing a tragic riding violence every night and has for over two months. It Seattle It's Chicago New York. We are seeing the violent crime rate increase. In. So he he obviously believes supporting law enforcement and defending the police rather than defunding them as a as a winning political message and I think that's probably right. Probably winning message in the suburbs where he's had some difficulty within the second issue is China I mean I don't believe that the word China was mentioned until ten fifty, seven pm eastern on Thursday night went by mentioned it in one sentence and obviously trump wants to try to deflect a little bit of the blame that he's getting the response to the actions or inactions China took as it relates to to to the virus but it's even bigger than that. It goes back to manufacturing because back to recognize China is an economic threat to the United States. Aggressive. And people can evaluate that I think trump is really moved the country on the issue of China last three and a half years and in fact, I think Biden might even be boxed in a strategically terms of the options you'll have available to him if he if he does win so I think those are two issues that you will see prominently featured over the next four nights that were pretty much ignored last week. about crime I was actually in Portland Oregon last week and the thing is, is that the little snippets that you see on social, not a social media but even covered in the media more broadly. In reality it's Confined to a couple of blocks area in downtown Portland the the entire rest of the city is happily living. It's life on a daily basis. So this idea that there's Sort of a crime ridden. Urban Warfare. This festering wound of of depravity taking over American cities doesn't track with with reality at all and that's why. It's not something that I just I. Don't think it's. Going to have traction beyond again, the president's base because what people are seeing literally, the people who live in those cities are seeing. What they're seeing is pretty much the opposite of what's the president's focusing on? It I don't think it's a question of how many city blocks are consumed by the vase. We're seeing in these cities I think it's more about the perceptions that people are feeling about whether law and order truly is restored in these cities whether they feel personally risk whether they feel like they're safety is being made better made worse in how the the fund the Police Movement, figures into all of that look if de-fund the police was a winning political message Biden the Democrats. would be wholeheartedly in publicly for it and and when that started, they have done everything. They can including last night on ABC News to to say that they are not in favor of defunding the police they appear to be in favor of transferring money from the police social services, which is effectively defunding police But look you're you're correct that this idea that every city you know is a is a chaotic nightmare and people are immediately at risk is not certainly not. Not. Not. Truthful. But, but I just think the energy on the left is about trying to at a minimum reform policing but perhaps go even further than that as Minneapolis has a Seattle has. Well Matt Makoviac Republican strategist in President of Potomac, strategy group and chair of the Travis County Republican Party with us today from Austin. Thank you so much joining US pleasure.

"I went on the road and I would do them from my hotel room that it'd be back home and do them on the set and it was just kind of moving along and it was really taking off around Christmas. January really was surprisingly solid and with the pandemic with a gift. It's perfect you don't have the pick it up. It doesn't have to be delivered. It doesn't have to be dropped off. They don't have to touch it and it lasts forever and it's totally personalized and I go over the top. Most PEOPLE'S I've watched a lot of communists but I'll do two and a half minutes because there's so much trump material to make and you believe this. Can you believe this because I usually open up with its greatest president in the history of president other than the late? Great a blanket really shelley. Wasn't that great. Wasn't that great. What do you have to deal with? Dany Way Nate civil war. What do I get the flu from? Jong China and you know what I learned about this company. This company is a great company.

It's really it's really amazing. And I've I brought on a bunch of People Christina Shaw Robert Nash Just a just a ton of people because I think it's great and because of the shelter in place of lot of people have jumped off so I have a petition. Now that's okay to his own. I WanNa talk about some of the other the current stuff and things that you're working on Back in February. Speaking of Saturday night live in and that other Guy February feels like it was forever ago really feels like it was like two years ago because when I was looking this up I thought I think it was this year but I want to be sure. Yeah back in February you got to do trump for Alec Baldwin. What you this is the coolest story. I was very you know I. It was a democratic state thing for Democrats of California. It was in Cupertino. I'd gotten a call and said Hi. We look we found you online. We have Alec Baldwin added event. He is contractually not allowed to do trump outside of snl like good for me and They said we'd love for you to open for him and I said Oh my God that would be incredible and I had said to Michelle. I said you know if I could just get a photo at this guy. We great because I know in these events. It's hard people come in. They thing out especially someone like so am I got. I got to the hotel. I was talking in advance. Obviously putting material together I got word back from them that he'd watched some of my stuff and he loved it which was really nice and then That day I they said. Oh he's really excited to meet your like. Wow that's that's incredible so I'm only I knew twelve minutes again up do my twelve minutes and it was going to be hand off. I was GonNa you know elect the is your your neighbors. And then as he's walking up the stage he looks at me yours. You're good you're good thank you thank you so much the stage is yours. Auvinen is. You're not going anywhere and I mean character but I'm kind of thrown because we we note about this and this event was for a specific assemblyman in California and Alex. Could we get some chairs up here? We get some chairs up here and you. If you saw the photos I want to interview this guy because you know my my trump is universally panned as the worst am. I right says the Mayor Noel and he and I said it is trump not that back so they said but this guy just did twelve minutes. He killed it years. Id trump every other week for forty five minutes. This guy did twelve minutes and he killed me was dead on to give a nice hand and then he interviewed me and how you started in trump and this and that global and then that was like another like seven eight minutes and the my was out and then we took some photos together. We talked a little bit and that he was off so between like him. Robert Smuggle felt like getting closer to Saturday night live. I'm closer here. No last Saturday night when he said from the last for the last time for my apartment and again another one of those just incredible opportunities that is yeah come up for you and ended be sitting right next to him on stage. He's asking me questions about how I got started how I crack the voice and I'm sitting there like did you hunt for Red October. You know what I mean it was just like I can't. It was weird that he was right there. Yeah so cool so cool you also Through the the run up here with the the presidential election coming up you developed you started working on a Bernie Sanders right. There's Bernie something that you had done for a while or was Bernie something that you would just kind of. It was one of those things. That's in your head. Come from the northeast and you lived in New York for those kind of that that way of talking you know and it doesn't matter if it's it's you know Jewish the majority of the Yiddish overtones and things like that or if it's you know How does this thing from Brooklyn and Queens? Where they do that thing where they talk like this. You know a little bit of New York obviously Bernie has warned York but he was such a great character and I had waited and waited and waited. I probably Shoulda jumped on him earlier but as we were going in and we were saying like probably going to be him or by in the field is still pretty big at that point but dropped out and people said to me. You know the Constellation is. He's not going anywhere but that's true. But it's it's you're on the run up to the election. They're not focusing on other people. Just looking at the main two people and then with the pandemic nobody's out and about no one's giving you know other than trump. No one's giving press conference binds in his basement. Essentially voice is. I can't figure out a way into his voice. Yeah no phrases uses consistently something that was kind of neat to see on social media Following you on on facebook and twitter and such. You're actually putting out videos almost testing the character. Yeah is that something that you normally do when you're developing a character or was that something different? Just for Bernie. I was new with Bernie because I had the opportunity to do it online on social media and I wanted to get other people's a I know is sound like people say to me. Sometimes you know you have to slow down as trump is like I fully aware but I this doing comedy. This isn't a documentary. I have to. There's timing involved here and I have to speed it up But with Bernie. I wanted to hear what people were. Were thinking with a lot of people. Just hope the lower your voice gotta be remember to below. You'll do bunny sentence the law and and they and they get saying was talking too fast but that's always like that's a decision you make a but it was probably the one thing I heard the most on. I had a lower my voice so I had to push my voice deepal down my throat so I could You know get that Sound that he has well. It's almost a little guttural. But if not it just the placement of his voice. So it's we're just fine tuning things like that. It is so much fun to listen to you. Do these voices. I'M NOT GONNA lie the saddest part about it though was you never got your trump sanders debate. I was working. I was starting to kind of flush it out. And there's a great access to an amazing not my angry and screamed on a really incredible like affiliate green screen here. I was going to do it. But it's one of these things. Where if it's the. There's so many other things that are at and things are happening so fast that get. I just got to focus on like the next next thing over these next few weeks months. The other thing that really kind of blew up for you and this was one that was fun to wake up to the one day in your your social media post on it was One of your trump clips got picked up by the Howard. Stern show. Yeah it was. It was incredible. Do you have any idea where that came from? Or how he got his hands on that or or now I really don't know I I don't know and really happy. The funny thing is about the Howard Stern show is. There have been multiple times over the last few years where people have message. Hey you regret on the Howard Stern show today hours. I wasn't may pretty good idea who was. It wasn't me because I have a very specific way of doing my trump and there are certain people who shall remain nameless who have utilized so So anyway So usually I try to find out who that was and I let the personnel like that was this guy or that was that guy but that particular morning I woke up and I was getting moldable messages like you you you you were great on the Howard Stern of your great on the Howard Stern on Mike. I don't literally typing someone back and then somebody else message. They're playing you're negative bit. I might That's what's happening and it's amazing. The power of Howard Stern. How many people listen to that guy? The volume of taxed and facebook messages was amazing. To have that kind of reach is so incredible and And I think it was the same day or the day after the Piers. Morgan played it and I have friends in the UK and relatives by sisters over there for forty years so than that came up at I was like holy cow. This is really. This is really taking off. That's so bizarre. But but I mean good bizarre us so great and I really would have loved. I would love to be on stern regularly if I could get up at four in the morning. That's that's the the having done morning radio for a very brief while I can tell you. It's no fun but for for stern money. I think I could do it. Yeah you get like fifty five million dollars a year or something like that. Yeah and he's in on shares on Sirius. Xm and everything to yeah. Oh God yeah I could do it for that money. I think I'd be okay with it. Let's talk a little bit about some of the voice over work that you've got as trump as of late Saw You posted some information on your facebook about a cartoon that that you're signed on for The fabulous freak brothers if it was the fabulous freak brothers. And that's their real name. That's a seventies comics. Part of like the CRUMB era of comics kind of gritty. Kind of thing that not dirty. But like the whole look was gritty and very debts like the illustration her very very dense. These are three hippies from that period. They took they were very reverend and they basically kind of they've been asleep all the time and they re hatched and you know this this point in history in who who's the first person they run into president trump so You know when you do animation as a pretty common knowledge that you're not in the studio with the other actors so I didn't get to meet Davidson. I didn't get to meet John Goodman. I didn't get to meet. Tiffany haddish and missing. What other Harrelson. He's got this great ape lazy older. Yoda catch us. Guy Is really laws downgrade. Yes at the whistle. People talk we want some of that Kentucky Fried Chicken? So he's really owners fun to watch and it's beautiful automation. It was a fun clip to watch. It was interesting to watch. I loved it but we changed. I had actually done all the recording like and they said. Hey this is coming out but we need to update it because covid nineteen so we added some of the coded lives and Change Minor. Minor Jason the script a couple of other voiceover projects that you've done as trump. You're the voice of Donald Trump in the audiobook the method to the madness nonfiction book from Allen Salkin and Aaron Short. Yeah Great. It's a nonpartisan book. It's all it's all people who are personal friends. There's no unnamed sources. It's a great book and then something else that you did that you shared on your facebook page and on your social media was A video that I I really enjoyed called the trump missing tapes. Yeah and and the way it was written in the way it was set up it was it was written as if it was a speech from. Donald.

"Time worker who hasn't done enough in the preceding weeks so again if you're in the kind of GIG economy if you decide not to turn up with relatively mild symptoms you might be able to pay the rent or feed your family and that's a really nasty place to put people into. I mean one of the issues that comes up when these kinds of things are discussed is the degree to which it could be. Abused people could simply check those incentives and realize that sick or not. They can just stay home. Yes and the countries with the most stingy rules Britain and America do have the fewest sick days off for a three point six remarkable Britain. But there's not a huge difference. Most countries with generous rules have fewer than ten days off. On average France has eight days often average. And now you can get fifty to one hundred percent of your normal earnings of six. So companies may think. They're saving money by avoiding generous payrolls but if it ends up with more of them off they actually may lose money in the long run and I suppose it's not just the outbreaks of over nineteen point out that some people regardless are going to go into work sick or not. Yes we've all met them. The Good Soldier Person. Who's turns up with a stinking cold covers their disc with tissues. And say look how good I am not yet to work despite my illness. And if you ring up and say I'm staying home with a coal today. They go really but actually all that doing probably is infecting people and we need to change the attitude in a world where pandemic support more likely global travel is more likely will spread from one part of the world to another very quickly as we've just seen so maybe you shouldn't view the worker who tends opposite of good soldier but actually as a social nuisance. I mean. These debates must have played out with prior outbreaks. What can be learned from those? Yes said the H One n one outbreak in twenty nine which was called swine flu. That was quite severe for a short time. We didn't see the kind of global shutdown that we have this time but a lot of work has turned up in America with the symptoms. And it's estimated around seven million co workers were infected as a result. If they'd stayed at home. Many fewer people would have been taken ill on the outbreak would not have been a severe until the incentives are right and until the person who wants to be seen to be powering through his told. That's a bad idea. We're going to have to cope with this. Are there other changes? People could make besides simply just just staying home as they should. Well we're noticing that people shaking hands anymore. They're bumping elbows touching feet. I think we need a bit of work. Looks Awkward when people do it but maybe just not your head when you see someone definitely not kissing tip of the hat tip of the hat when you have had exactly also maybe. Fewer people will go to conferences. You know conferences being canceled. Maybe people will discover. They won't need them anymore. And the three most dreaded words in the English language post event networking. Maybe that will stop as well. And we won't have to have as many meetings something I know that preoccupies you even union the time before Corona virus absolutely Baldwin law eighty percent of the time of eighty percent of people in meetings is wasted. And if it's both wasting time and making you sick all the morts Phil thank you very much. Thank you Jason. Thanks for keeping.

"Do Russia's constitution currently says that Ladimir Putin must leave office at the end of his current term in twenty four. He's already the longest serving leader since. Joseph Stalin ruled over the Soviet Union but for months there have been hints that he wants to extend his tenure further on Tuesday. Russia's parliament unanimously passed a constitutional amendment that would reset the clock on his leadership. It should sail through the constitutional court equally easily. And if more when it's voted into law Mr Putin would be able to rule until the year twenty thirty six so in two thousand Putin became president for the first time. There was a film being made him. Calmer was following him. Cody Ostrovsky Russia and Eastern Europe EDITOR FOR THE ECONOMIST. And the interviewer asked him whether he thought about the central issue in Russian history one of succession said yes. In fact I haven't thinking about a lot and looking out of the windows. Pensively he said I very much hope that one day I will manage to go back to normal life and that I'll have some private future and from people. I talked to around him. A lot of them say that when he first told dependency actually thought he was only game to stay there for one time. But what we're seeing. Is that Vladimir Putin. Who wants wanted out of office is increasingly distant in in in history. He wants to stick around. What's happened this week? That underlines that basically what happens this week let him Putin strolled into building on the Russian parliament. The Duma being queued up by an three-year-old MP intimidated a was a Soviet cosmonaut. The first woman to go to space to pray with the Radio Neither. Putin nurse stealth sides in wine making it also complicated. The world is a very dangerous place. Wouldn't be better if Putin could just carry on as president that was a factor the meaning of words and the said. Well we better ask. The president of the actually wants that and UNQ- walked in Vladimir Putin Rosalie shrewd abolishing eastern the essence of what he says there will be no more term limits. He will be able to stand should so desire again when his current position loss term expires in twenty. Four but everybody. Russia understands that basically what Vladimir Putin said his presidency is life and so this this constitutional amendment how it become law well in some ways it has already become law this last amendment about resetting. The clock on the terms was not even discussed or written by anybody. There wasn't a document. It was simply sad by Valentina. Tereshkova this cosmonauts an MP was immediately voted on and now it's been passed by the Duma. The Russian parliament still has to be signed by the President. But there is very little doubt. He'll sign it since he's the one who proposed it and then on April twenty second Russia will hold something called old people vote where people will express their approval disapproval now. Legally this is very dubious because this vote will be neither referendum. No-one election and I suspect will be sort of televised. Expressions of people of letting Putin and of affirming mandate and how much of that is a reflection that is in fact what the Russian people want verses a suggestion of how complete the control is that Mr Putin has over them. Well what we've seen over the past two years is let me Putin's ratings actually sliding trust that Russian people have in him has almost halved from two thousand eighteen from sixty percent. Thirty five percent half of the country. Don't want to see him as president anymore. And until this week only twenty five percent of Russian population. We're ready to vote for those amendments of course in Russia's ever questions how you pound not how people vote. I suspect it will be voting at home particularly with the outbreak of corona virus. And they'll be few polling station. It'll be done very much for media if act and so in that sense. It sounds as if it's already a done deal we're just waiting for the pieces of the story to play out. I mean there has been talk in recent years of a of a strengthened emboldened opposition in Russia. Is there no opposition coming from them? The opposition faces a very difficult task. Does the opposition sit down and play the game the rules which been set by the Kremlin which is almost certainly the will of hand and do they participate in the spectacle to the ask people to come out on the streets now again the carnival? The outbreak of current ivars provided a very convenient. Excuse for most of the city authorities for example ready to ban any big public gatherings of above five thousand people so the opposition has to decide. Does it challenge the Kremlin by if actually participating in his son game or does it just ignore it and you? You mentioned that the corona virus. That's certainly a source of instability everywhere but certainly rushes in the news also for being part of this oil price. War is is this bringing the kind of instability that will strengthen Mr Putin's case or weaken it well. The crisis in the in the oil market actually is very much a Russia zone making it was Russia who in the end decided not to stick with the agreement with OPEC on prices and then they won. Russia's said it's not going to stick to that agreement. Dan's Audi's dumbed. The prices Russia was very much ready for it. I think this is a general sense of instability prices in the world. They outbreak of Corona virus. The sense of the troubles in the West Etcetera all this providing certainly background for Putin to argue that look the seas to store in the world is too unsafe for me to abandon the steering wheel at this point. Nine deserter one day perhaps the power in Russia will become less personalized. But for now you need me I need to deliver safe and stable Russia but why with with all this bluster and all of the work. That's going to need to be done to secure. Do you think Mr Putin is working so hard to stay in power? The main reason is Putin and his cronies have a done enough of bad things and enrich themselves to the point that it's just simply unsafe physically unsafe for them to leave office and abandoned deposition particularly for for his entourage and they enter Has Been in. The lead has been very unnerved by the sense that this is his last term. They don't have any legitimacy of their own everything they own have and deposition is dependent on him so the question is how does the Kremlin ensure that legitimacy and a lot of commentators in Moscow is days saying actually there is only one loss to and they will use? It has gained be sheer force. Thank you very much for joining us. Thank you America's Congress is expected to vote today on a sweeping corona virus aid. Bill include free virus tests for those confined one tax credits for businesses and notably for a country with stingy labor protections. A promise to pay workers affected by Cova nineteen paid emergency leave with fourteen paid sick days very essential as we deal with this public house. Challenge that we have. As the pandemic has spread companies have banned non essential travel told symptomatic isolate themselves and encouraged working from home. But what about those who can't afford not to go to work it a dilemma for workers particularly in countries? Where sick pay rules are not very generous? Philip coggan writes the economists Bartolucci column on work and management. If you're going to lose out in monetary terms by taking sick leave you're gonna tell them to work and that's going to spread the virus more quickly. What are the facets then of the dilemma? The first difficulty is this is a new disease and the initial symptoms quite mild and resemble colorful pops a cold. So people aren't sure they have it. Many people will think. Well it's account the virus. I haven't been to Italy or China so I'm more inclined to think that antenna up to work. If they will be penalized in terms of poor sick. Pay No sick. Pay a toll in countries where the rules are more generous to employers than they ought to workers because the provision for sick pay very quite a lot between countries they do so some countries very generous. You get one hundred percent sick pay. Those tend to be in Europe. You'll be surprised to know in America about a quarter of all workers in the private sector. Have no right to sick. Pay At all in Britain. There is a right sick pay which has just been made slightly easiest to do you now. Guess it's on the first day you don't turn up. As opposed to the fourth but minimum of sick pays US ninety four pounds a week. And that's about a fifth of average earnings. And you don't get it if your a part.

"Twenty. Nine thousand nine was tumultuous year for Democracy in Lebanon Chile Hong Kong and beyond people made their voices heard in protests org and governments tougher on dissent in Russia Iraq and Turkey. I listen to. NPR News we will at least every year. The Economist Intelligence Unit the research arm of the Economist Group compiles all these data into a global picture of democracy. Twenty thousand nineteen was a new low point for democracy around the world. Joan holy is the news director for Europe and compiles the democracy index the Economist Intelligence Wants Units Annual Democracy Index. Recorded this worst ever global school since we began producing the index in two thousand six there were many negatives but there were some bright spots and for us. The main bright spot is that there was an upsurge of popular protest in many regions of the the world and that was a plus for democracy. I mean how do you even go about tackling such a big and And woolley question of house democracy doing. Yeah that's been reams and reams written about how you measure democracy and methodology and so forth but our index is what I would call a a wide measure of democracy. We look at countries across five categories. One is electoral process and pluralism. Another another is the functioning of government political participation political culture and civil liberties. We think that is very important to look look at political participation and political culture because we think kits all very well to have in place the formal institutions and processes that's is but the real measure of a proper functioning democracy really is the involvement of people so with all that in mind then Which countries are our best democracy in which works okay? There's probably no surprises right at the top. We have no way Scandinavian countries. In general. Do quite quite well and Europe does. Well that's western Europe. Eastern Europe does very well right at the bottom usual suspects North Korea China's now very very close to the bottom many of the authoritarian regimes in the Middle East in the Commonwealth of Independent States. Definitely the biggest I move was Thailand. which moved up the global rankings? My thirty eight places then. That's mainly because finally Thailand held elections Several years after the attack that occurred and those elections were held in a relatively free and fair manner and there was loyalism that was choice for voters and saw and that was a big step up for Thailand. The big headline result here though is that the democracy has broadly declined is the lowest in fact that you've ever seen gene. Why do you suppose that is a very big question? And I don't think there's a straightforward answer and I think a lot of attention has been focused on economic drivers vers- particularly in the wake of the global economic and financial crash in two thousand nine now sturdy cost of living increases unemployment payment and so on unusually protests reactions. Come with a leg. And that's certainly what happened in the wake of that crisis and there was an upsurge of protests touched around the world in two thousand fourteen. I would say that it would be a mistake to think. That's the main underlying cause of this Upsurge a protest. I think the drivers actually are really political is popular dissatisfaction with the political status quo. And if you look at the deterioration in the category school as you can see that. Very strong correlation. John Thank you very much for your time.

Nine hundred seventy nine. A million people attended a mass celebrated by Pope John Paul on his visit to the country but Ireland has changed changed a lot since then through a series of referendums in one thousand nine hundred. Six divorce was legalized in two thousand. Fifteen same sex. Civil Marriage was allowed that prompted a huge party in Dublin and in two thousand eighteen. Abortion was legalized now a couple of weeks. The country is heading for an election seven against the backdrop of Brexit with the new generation entering politics. It's even more liberal. Running for reelection is the country's t shock were Prime Minister Leo Varadkar. WHO's the gay son of an Indian immigrant? His premiership would have been unthinkable. Only a generation ago social change usually happen slowly so so how in Ireland as it comes so fast so I traveled across island. I started in Dublin Emma Hogan Deputy Briefings Editor and then my first stop was was to Longford in central island where I spoke to eighty three year old grandmother was Agnes McKenna. Co teach richer throws a twenty twenty seven year old granddaughter scenic. I speak to them. Because they're remarkable. Pair the Sheena is an activist. She works works on. LGBT not right hundreds of homes very involved in both the same sex marriage campaign the campaign marriage reggie quality passing and the sky not falling in. Yeah proof fast. You could move forwards with social change and and what was striking about them as Chino's twenty-seven and comes from a different island to the one that agnes grew in just members every second trump morakot to pass than the person because I understood the past nurturer talk. You understand the present. It's going too fast from and took acne screwed up in trim in western island She'd grew up in a house with Chad. No electricity no heating lived in Ireland. That was run by the Catholic Church schools. They were charged with all schools thorough priests route. I rented them is really more than the government. But she in came out agnes before she came out at parrots and Iran. You think you might've in October November that year I I won't be bring it home. And he nods for America afterwards. I kind of follow up on. Santa's I cars right and you were very like you're totally fine with it. Like he didn't accepted it is interested in sexual attack and so I wanted to meet them to see this example of inter generational change where two people who have basically seen island change before them could have very different views on some things got gutting religion but could also have similar views on on what they thought about same sex marriage and the bullshit. My friend the kind of social change that That you were describing describing that that these these people have seen often goes so slow. You don't even notice. Why do you suppose it? It's it's gone so quickly. Ireland when I in retrospect it feels inevitable edible. I think one of the main factors was the church by virtue of being that when the Constitution was written in the Nineteen Thirties Day. Hey was so powerful. And so compensation an Irish life didn't Roaf constitution passed. So there's a sense in which I think that it. The power was so overweening that it was inevitable that people were going to act against it but there were other factors as well so to take the example again of Agnes She moved abroad to London. Fifteen on my order to room to go out you go out Satan. Which I result? She saw a different world. And that's an experienced. A lot of Irish people with the large Irish diaspora have experienced as well. It was also sped up by the fact that speech from the nine hundred ninety s to the two thousands the worst series of really quite dreadful Scandals in the Irish church bishops bishops. Who are very well-known beloved being found to have had illegitimate children the sexual abuse scandals paedophile priests and and then from the late? Nineteen Ninety s investigations into the Magdalene. Laundries where unmarried mothers were sent to work and often treated very cruelly and the mother and baby homes where unmarried mothers again would often have children and we often separated from these children and there have been investigations that are ongoing gene onto into allegations that children babies and young children were buried in unconsolidated ground and places that says chew in West Island there have been denials about this and they have been backlash towards this as well but it certainly seems to be the case that in several institutions hundreds of children children died. Either through Mount Attrition. Who to other reasons but these really are this shocked? The Irish Irish state The idea that places that were meant to provide care did the opposite. So was there a a single turning point when that that dynamic was reversed where where people people started to to make these realizations. I think this happened over decades but the one particular point came in two thousand twelve with the death of an Indian in dentist could Savita Halpern era. It was a wanted pregnancy. She died of Sepsis after she was refused an abortion the midwife reportedly said to her. We're we're a Catholic country to because he had a heartbeat. It couldn't be aborted. That really shocked a lot of Irish people. What I think Goso helped this was that the government led by Edna? Kenny at the time decided to set up a constitutional convention considered to assess to examine matters. That are deeply complex hugely challenging and profoundly ethical. It's pretty revolutionary. It's a form of a citizens assembly where Initially Sixty six randomly selected citizens sat. The I I think just under two years to discuss different topics that might be changed constitutionally and this session included the question of same sex marriage it really was transformational and I. I spoke to a postman. Fim Bar Brian. Who took part in the convention? He someone who was abused as a child by layperson has struggled in his life with with that Had tried to commit suicide had got psychiatric metric. Help and realize hit acquainted hem sexuality with Paedophilia. Biggest problem with people is Ignorance to know they don't don't know enough because it's the thing that happened to be personally years ago. I was abuse and automatically from there on any gay person I came across. WAS I. Categorize domestic abuser. which meant that? I didn't have enough knowledge. I didn't know more people in the country and the same board as I buzz and I kept. I don't onto that God. I got head got educated and deny phone. Don't give people their man or woman or whatever that people are just attitude. I talk because I didn't know any different. I think examples like that Shay to the the public large you could watch the constitutional convention a livestream. How much asked us to changed? So over the course of this. This sort of grand shift left in in in perceptions has the church tried to reform or to change or to fight the change. The Catholic church is still very powerful and island. It still Everyone mainly Catholic country about three quarters of people still consider themselves to be Catholic. Most of the primary schools are Catholic. But what I struck by. In many cases people are still Catholic and yet they're not necessarily going to mess and they're still Catholic and yet they are the define nine some of the key teachings of the Catholic Church such as a same sex marriage or abortion in terms of what this means for the Catholic Church in the future. I think it will be a smaller presence in island. In some instances it might be more conservative. We still have a third of people in Ireland. Who voted against abortion shenanigans? Simtek Mary you can still see that in Ireland. There are some divisions that but I don't see it changing anytime soon. Thank thank you very much for your time..

"But I Next week Canada's parliament will reconvene for its first session. Since October's election Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's Liberal Party is still dylan control but in a minority government with smaller parties back in two thousand fifteen after winning a thumping parliamentary majority. Mr Trudeau declared that the new liberal era had begun Etienne spoken you want a government with a vision and in the gender for this country. That is it's positive and then vicious and hopeful for years later he sounded much the same and they voted in favor of a progressive agenda. And I'm strong action on climate change but October's election. His party won a million fewer votes and won no seats in the the western provinces of Alberta and Scotch on the victory speeches may have sounded similar but in his second term. It seems Mr Trudeau May Not Justin Trudeau had struggled to get reelected in part because He had attempted to try to change the world in fact at one point in his twitter bio read changing the world. A little bit every day. John I've isn't has reported on Mr does fortunes for the economist and I think that the electric really wanted them. Rather than to change changed the world. They wanted to an agenda. It was a little bit less planetary in scope. It was made worse by the fact that that his own blunders seemed to make him look like a hypocrite particularly Louis repeatedly winning black face when he was younger. This during the election is a bit of a bombshell. This is something that I deeply deeply. Eh regret darkening. Your face Regardless of the context or the circumstances is always unacceptable all because of the racist history of black face and then mainly the scandal which was reverberating in early. Twenty nine thousand nine hundred eighty demoted. It is justice minister after she refused to help a Quebec based construction company. Settle a criminal case and avoid prosecution over allegations of bribery and Libya in this has been a tough few weeks Canadians. Expect deserve to have faith in their institutions and the people who act within them well. First of all the justice does minister was a woman secondly she was an indigenous woman. And these issues that he'd been pontificating on he was particularly tarnished in the eyes of progressive voters. Well that's that's not to say though that he hadn't Taken on some big causes at home no I think that the liberal government was very proud of its record in the first four years. There were some pretty transformative changes the legalization of pot being one of them a very generous Gerald benefit allowance that lifted many people out of poverty. Eighty today nine out of ten families have more money in their pockets for things like new skates or hockey camp. The now helps more than six million children children and their families and it's helped lift hundreds of thousands of kids out of poverty since its inception in twenty sixteen. They managed to enhance the kind of pension implant They established a a national price on carbon and probably most crucially for the Canadian economy. The renegotiated a new free trade agreement with the trump administration that while it made some concessions that did not give away the farm. It was a pretty good result for Canada. Well what what's striking about. The the the election result though is how much the west of the country didn't seem to support him yes so it was locked out of the provinces of Alberta and to schedule No. MP's no representation. and Ah a rising feeling that some of these attempts to change the world particularly on climate change were being done at the expense of the resort producing regions of the country. So there's there's clearly in the second minded things that Trudeau needs to address. And he has started trying to address them. Address them in a in a change of tone or more concretely in policy. Well he he came back from Christmas vacation in Costa Rica. He had adopted a salt and pepper stubble which was designed. I think to make him look a little bit more. Seasoned I think that was symbolic and deliberately symbolic because I think this is a new low key approach. I think that they felt that while. They made some transformative changes in their last Monday. They didn't really get a lot of credit for that. As we saw in the election result there were far too many times editor was picture championing. Latest 'cause the latest woke because the critics would claim while not really talking about some of the things that he was actually doing. And what do you think of the big issues in his inbox. Now that he has this thin majority majority that the government gave it speech from the throne just before Christmas. The main th- broad themes will continue to be support for the middle class. The short themselves without an broad-based tax cut. That came before Christmas. The other major themes from the term we're going to continue. Reconciliation with indigenous communities continued attempts at ensuring the health and safety of Canadian through things like the introduction of a national drug benefit plan but the middle class has permeated just about everything they've done they've even appointed a minister for the middle class. No the term was ridiculed. And it's really a a junior finance minister role but clearly you. There's a feeling that if they can push the average Canadian increase their earnings lift people below the mode of poverty that this is a winning winning formula and they should be concentrating on this rather than on some of the more identity politics issues which dominated the first term. And so what. What will he be kind of working against? Does he tries to do this. And and keep all of these these various constituencies happy. The obvious one is. This is now a minority parliament. The liberal government needs the support of at least one other of the major parties the MVP the left of center and EP the Bloc Quebecois separatist party. I don't think we can expect an election anytime soon. The MVP urban strapped for cash. They're not likely to want to force an election. The bloc is quite happy as long as it's issues concerning quebecer addressed the other constraints obviously the the problems on the prairies with Scott. Actually no Berta have to be addressed. The one or the other thing that comes to mind is there are fiscal pressures. This is a government that has spent a lot of money in the first four years and his first platform. It said they would be back in balanced by two thousand nineteen in fact. This year's deficit is likely to be somewhere in the region of twenty six billion dollars Canadian as bill more. No the finance minister said when he met with reporters after he gave a fiscal update just before Christmas. He said nobody said it was going to be easy. And it's not so so all of this sort of Taken together how. How do you expect this? The second term to play apple with both with the the the fiscal and political constraints the The prime prime minister nowadays expected to be taken a little more seriously with his pepper beard. How how do you think this will come together all told I think it largely depends on who the conservatives choose news as their next leader Andrew share the former leader has been ousted and they're going to be contested? Too late June remains to be seen whether he wants to go for another election. I think there are a large question marks about that whether he wants if this is the minority that goes for more than two years. He may feel at that point that he's done enough and he's going to exit stays left but let's assume that he stayed around. There are a number of options for the Conservatives. I think it depends which one the membership picks. The Trudeau looks at the next election. It's not clear yet all of the potential candidates. But there is a female Rona Ambrose who was the interim leader of the conservative before chose there permanently. I think Mr Trudeau. It's very hard to run against a woman leader if however the conservative choose a leader who is small c conservative on social issues. WHO's the loss leader? They're not plays into truth. Hans they membership base will want a leader who is perhaps skeptical of same sex marriage who has for life with these credentials. That's why lost the last election partly his views on climate changes. Well I think the Conservative Party has to have a much more enlightened view. You've who is trying to appeal to and if it does pick a leader who can win votes in the largest provinces of Quebec Ontario then Trudeau may be in trouble Nixon. Sean thank you very much for joining.
