A large number of protesters had assembled I did not know that. That he was going to do that until later in the day after our plans were well underway to to move the perimeter, so there was no correlation between our our tactical plan of moving the perimeter out by one block and the president's going over to the church. The president asked members of his cabinet to go over there with them. And that claim from the attorney general now as for that stinging statement from former Defense Secretary James Mattis accusing the president of dividing instead of uniting the US former White House chief of staff.

"senator lisa murkowski" Discussed on Off The Charts Energy Podcast
"We find this balance and that balance it is is is so important. I'm sorry I keeping her one more thing or my uncle in law was a former senator from Arkansas and he had on his desk facing out to assign when people came in his office. which is Arkansas comes first? So in addition to describing how you're going to on navigate these two four cents at Alaska. Can you talk about how you balance that against whatever the national answers are so I should and get twenty minutes answer but I should get that sign for my desk to although I think people know that I feel pretty strongly about that we are a state where seven hundred twenty thousand people. When we came into the union just shy of sixty years ago it was made very clear? Look you're never gonNA have enough people to support yourself from a permit from a tax base perspective it's your resources that will sustain you and that is is the story that was the story at statehood. That's is a story that continues today. Believe it or not. We're a state where eighty five percent of our state's budget comes from one place lace eighty. Five percent of our state's budget comes from oil so when the price of oil is down when production is down what happens to our state in terms of of the Treasury had we pay for public safety roads and and the like so if we want to be that state that has resources to help whether it is moving villages whether it is getting our state off. Aw of off of diesel I think about that you think about Alaska and you think okay what I know about it is you got you got oil up on the north but you. You've you've got this sixty five billion dollars in the bank as part of your permanent fund so it must be a pretty nice place and oh by the way I also heard that you give everybody an annual dividend from that. That's all true but what we what we what we don't have been one is is is communities that are connected by grid so so we literally don't have a road grid. We've got a highway that goes from from seward to fairbanks and then down and we don't have electric grids so to speak. We've got one rail belt line and after that everybody is on their own. And think about what that means when everybody's on your own in southeast where it's a rainforest you've got a hydro which is your energy but you're limited within your ability to provide for transmission line so you've got all these island did Energy Reggie Systems and the rest of the state you just are not connected so no road no electric let me give you a little factoid. Here over eighty percent of the communities in the state of Alaska are not connected by a road. Think what that means. How do you get stuff off? How do you get your food? How do you get your building materials? How do you move around? It's crazy expensive and then you put on that that the fact that in so many of these communities they continue to be powered by diesel generation. And so you say oh well you get your diesel missile from your the North Slope. Well we don't we send that down a pipeline. We send that down south to be refined them they send it back to us and then we have to put it on a barge or an airplane to get to us so you get out to the village on the Yukon River and you're paying eight nine ten dollars a gallon to keep warm arm in a cold place so what we're trying to do. Necessity is the mother of invention and we got a lot of mothers inventing extraordinary do things because we have to because we are so high cost in a cold place where you need to keep warm. And so we're pioneering with with micro grids we are. We're doing more in Alaska because we have to and we're doing it with a little bit of Ingenuity Luethi. Maybe a couple of wind turbines bring in some solar panels get a little river turban gun energy storage by literally literally Chevy Volt batteries. That are stacked up on Costco Racks. But we've got. We've got imagination that is going on. That is being viewed you not only by the experts in our national labs around the country but people around the world that are looking to Alaska because for us. We're going to have to figure out how we reduce our emissions kind of on our own because it's not like we can we can. We can deal with it through the utilities because it's really that's limited in terms of its scope job so we're doing a lot of pioneering that people don't know about we're okay with that we'll share with you when when when you're ready but but you ask about about the balance and how we balance Alaska's interest with the national interest. I I get it I take it back to in order for us to be able to make this transition to to clean energy. We gotta have. We have to have the resources to be able to fund it. Because we know we're not going to be getting that much from from the federal government to assist because again we're small scale where small we're small in the total scheme of things. So how we balance that continues to be a challenge Allen Jr but how we push those who are accessing these these fossil resources to do it in a manner that is not not only more clean but really reducing that overall environmental footprint. We've got we've got to push to make sure the word that is a significant part of the equation as well terrific now. I you know this better than I do. But of course carbon bracing does create all kinds of new revenues. That can help grease the wheels. But that's one piece of the puzzle energy. Okay now. My thirteen year old daughter would be very very upset. If I didn't ask the following question she is. I think I think it's starting to melt away slowly but still it is true that she's one hundred percent convinced That boys certainly myself certainly son or an inferior species and twenty five women in the US Senate not not now two hundred fifty right now in fifty. So how'd Senate be different if there were more women and what should men learn from women and well. It's totally you're asking this towards the end because we could have taken up the whole conversation. I I am a firm believer that women by their very nature. Bring a level of collaboration that I think is important to any process says and I am a big advocate to try to encourage more women in all levels of of a public policy and we. We're we're kind of high fiving ourselves that we've gotten to two twenty five. When I came? We were at eleven so we have made some some progress. But I find it just astonishing that when we look to other countries in terms of their parents and their structure. We're telling them you you need to make sure that you've got basically a fifty fifty split in in in your form of government with women to men and yet we have have been just not looking at ourselves in terms of how women are are engaged aged in the policy. So I I will share with you that the women do things not in a monolithic. Nick manner it's not like okay because we're women a women we all vote the same way on this. It's crazy but what we do try to do that. I think is healthy. Is it tried to build those personal relationships so about every six weeks the women are the Senate get together. Somebody agrees to host Sometimes it'll be at the member's house there in DC or if they don't have a very very big house enough for fifteen or twenty of says you know we will do it in a in. Somebody's office or or in a restaurant and we gathered together. And there's three rules. No staff off notes no leaks. We're just there to share one another's company and sometimes it's just having a glass of wine and complaining whining about you. Know who's running the show and I gosh. I can't believe they're doing this. And other times we talk about our kids. Our family relationships. Some stresses of the job and other times we talk about some very significant issues of the day and what we might be able to do to help influence that outcome. But what what we try to do is remind one another that we're in positions Of Great.

Some folks that were part of a hundred women that traveled from Anchorage to try to get in front of Senator Lisa Murkowski to try to influence her vote. They said a group of a number of them met with her yesterday. And they were trying to make sure that she was a no vote which ended up doing in. This cloture vote again what she's going to do tomorrow. We'll just briefly Braxton a lot of protesters have made their way into the capital to try to have their voices. Heard by senators is getting into elevators, etc. What kind of access or protesters getting inside the capitol. Yes, they're they're still getting in have not been inside the capitol today, but they are not being impeded by by capitol police to get in this crisis is going to continue throughout the day. And you can probably see that happening tomorrow as well. Right. That's a Braxton Booker outside the capitol Brockton. Thank you. Thank you. Well, as we continue to follow everything with Brett Cavanaugh at the US capitol today. A number of Senate races are in the balance with four weeks or so to go until election day. Let's get to our Senate tracker series this week. We're looking at the race in Nevada. Where Republican Senator dean Heller is facing a challenge from democratic congresswoman Jackie Rosen and joining us now from Las Vegas is Joe Shane Amon host and senior producer at Nevada public radio. Hijo? Hey, how you doing doing? Well, and let's start with the democratic challenger. Jackie Rosen, a relative newcomer to politics compared to Heller. She was president of her synagogue before. Democrats back in two thousand sixteen tapped her to run for congress where she is serving her first term what else should we know about her just a quick bio, she's sixty one she's the mother of a college age daughter her husband's a radiologist. She lives in Henderson, which is a city adjacent Vegas, and she moved here from the midwest after her parents moved here. This was back in college. She. Was a waitress at Caesars Palace. He had a degree from a community college became a computer programmer. And then she got onto the national scene. Really by surprise when former Senate majority leader Harry Reid asked her to run for the house, which she won in two thousand sixteen beating Danny Tarquini in a really close race. And we remember that Harry Reid represented the state of data. Let's listen to one of the ads from Jackie Rosen. That's airing on TV. She's kind of going on the offensive here. It opens up with a shot of one of those inflatable Gumby type things you see outside a car dealership blowing in the wind. And then she acquaints that to dean Heller. They call them senators.

"Yup. Nope yet. Wait, fifty one. Yup. Forty nine. Nope. That was the cloture vote in the United States Senate to end the discussion and move it forward toward a vote regarding DC circuit court judge Brett m Cavanaugh. That's right. The vote is now scheduled for tomorrow afternoon at four PM. There's some real interesting little controversies that have popped up though. One of the biggest ones is that the Senator Lisa Murkowski Republican of Alaska voted, no and has come out and said, he's not the right candidate. This is really a big issue that she said that and one of the yes votes was democratic. Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia. So we got one. Yes. Out of a democrat and one no out of a Republican Maine Senator Susan Collins did vote to move it forward. She gave an I vote A Y E a yes. Vote to move the vote forward for tomorrow. However, at noon, our time, she is going to have a news conference that I am ninety nine percent. Sure that we will try and carry coming up in two hours. When Susan Collins announces something. Oh my goodness. This is just wild. How all this is going down. Now, let's let's take a little cycle back for just to say near judge Brad Kavanagh who is a supreme court nominee who last week accused Democrats of plotting a political hit job against him because of the Clintons in an effort to smear his good name because that's what they did to Gorsuch. Oh, ate didn't. Just can't keep stop from shaking. My head about that one. He.

"Forty nine the Senate has ended debate on the nomination of Brett Cavanaugh to the US supreme court. There will be a full vote on Kavanagh's confirmation. Alaska's Senator Lisa Murkowski voted. No. She did not want to end debate did not want to invoke cloture, not necessarily indicative of how she plans to vote on Kavanagh's confirmation. But certainly a sign that she is not totally supportive of it. Susan Collins, meanwhile, and Jeff flake both Republicans voting I and one of the bigger surprises. Joe Manchin Senator of West Virginia who is up for reelection in a deep red state. He is a democrat. He voted with the majority to end debate. Possibly sending a signal that he is going to vote to confirm Brett Cavanaugh, and that he is going to side with Republicans. Let's go to John in oakfield, you're on the Dan O'Donnell show.

That's the woman who accused cavenaugh exposing himself to hurt Yale University. They said earlier in the day that they're very concerned that the FBI is not conducting a thorough investigation. Lawmakers continue to Spar though over the supreme court nominee. And here's FOX's Mike Emanuel with the latest after Senate Democrats suggested the FBI supplemental probe into allegations against judge. Brad Kavanagh should be expanded Texas Republican Senator John Cornyn said that's not right. I don't think it's proper for the Senate to be telling the FBI how to do their job. They know how to do this. They've do it regularly, and it should be devoid of politics. There are a few moderate senators who are waiting on the FBI pro before announcing how vote Alaska Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski is not showing her cards. I have been assured is that they are conducting this background investigation as they do. All background investigations allowing for the investigation to take its course on Capitol.

"The Senate Judiciary committee this afternoon. Voting to send the nomination of judge Brett Kavanagh to the Senate floor for consideration. But for one key Senator on the committee that vote came with some big strings attached. I think it would be proper to delay the floor vote for up to but not more than one week in order to let the FBI do an investigation limited in time and scope to the current allegations that are there that is Republican Jeff flake calling for an FBI investigation into the sexual assault allegations against supreme supreme court nominee Brett cavenaugh.

"Hey, I'm his Brown. And here are two stories you need to know about today. During his campaign President, Donald Trump repeatedly promised to nominate supreme court justices who would overturn Roe v Wade. Now that he's nominated judge Brett Kavanagh for retiring Justice, Anthony Kennedy seat, abortion rights, advocates, worried that the conservative dream will come true. Row for those of you who might need a refresher is the nineteen Seventy-three court decision that legalized abortion nationwide. But what needs to happen in order for row to be overturned is more complex than it might seem. First of all, Senate needs to actually confirm cavenaugh. This seems very likely but Republican senators, Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins might be hold outs, but they both voted to confirm drums last, pick Justice, Neal, Gorsuch. Then it's a waiting game for the first lawsuit over abortion rights to reach the supreme court. If cavenaugh is confirmed, there are number of cases making their way through the lower courts right now that could end up before the supreme court. Then this prim court has to agree to hear them which doesn't always do even then rose fate may not rely on Cavanaugh alone, but if it is overturned, it would not make abortion illegal. It would just end that decision down to the state level current laws in states with liberal pro abortion rights. Legislators probably wouldn't be affected, but they might see an increase in people traveling for abortions from out of state. Abortion rights advocates are also concerned that the lack of supreme court protection for abortion. Laws could also increase restrictions, including bans on insurance that covers abortion the morning after pill or long acting contraceptive methods, whatever happens. It's extremely unlikely that the US will wake up one morning with its abortion laws entirely reversed, which is what happened.
