How to Design your own Token System
"In this week's podcast. We will discuss how to design your own token system. And i'm very pleased to welcome back. Sherman version gear founder of token kitchen and author of token economy. Sherman come back to inch blocks for our listeners. Who haven't listened to our previous podcast. Could you please give them a quick introduction on yourself. yeah. I think you did a good job so i am token kitchen and i wrote a book called token economy and were given intrude into the web. Three and it's the game changing aspects socioeconomic aspects of the web three and its token is educations and I before that. I found that the blockchain helping berlin where we did a Years ago blockchain education in community building. I then went on to create a cryptic economics research institute at the university of economics. Where we're doing some applied research on the intersection of Startups and academia and I recently started token kitchen which is basically a continuation of the activities of the last year but Under a new brand Because we're now focusing not on blockchain or the web three but more on the token applications brilliant radar. Thank you for that. So as you remember from podcast. Nearly well about a year ago. The first question we always ask our guests is what is blockchain. And how does it work however when you answered this time. I'm curious to know how your definition of blockchain has evolved since our first podcast. i don't think it has evolved. i. I'm not sure how i answered last night but pretty much probably the. I'm going to answer this time. It's not about blockchain blockchain really it's an important backbone of this new generation internet which many referred to as the web three and does Blockchain is be important backbone because it's basically a blockchain network is a collectively maintained public infrastructure that where people are incentivized to keep the letter up-to-date in trustful manner and it is the backbone of this web three because it allows us to Collectively settled data transactions whether it's value transactions or other data flows On a tr- sherrod public infrastructure. That any everyone can trust instead of having you know. Private client server infrastructure where data is managed on stored behind the walled gardens of a server that belongs to a specific institution or private entity. While a few years ago. We were talking a lot about blockchain. Really the interesting thing is not blockchain. Blockchain brought us back in revolution in order to really have a decentralized web or web. Three win need other protocols The interesting application is the token right is end. The tokens are the killer. Applications of kind of the web three very similar to what websites were to the early internet in the nineteen nineties when the worldwide web came up. Great great so. I'll in our previous podcast entitled token economy. I i think it will be useful to revisit. You know what is a token. And whether different types of tokens if you could perhaps give a high level overview of that will be great place. yeah so basically I think when most people wouldn't probably even use the word token but probably cryptocurrencies. So we've talked on. Cryptocurrencies crypto assets but cryptocurrencies encrypted assets. Are specific types of tokens right. So a token can represent him money whether it's state issued money like people refer to that cbc but also a virtual currencies that were created in the web. Three which are referred to as cryptocurrencies tokens can also represent any type of asset such as a commodities But also physical assets Kind of Ah fundable assets like like art. Real estate We can really token is any virtual or real asset can be token nice than have a digital representative that is easily traded. But this is only one specific type of token tokens that are transferable from person to person. But there are also tokens. There are tied to our kind of identity identity of a person machine or an institution. These are personal. Data for example can You know were credentials certificates Token is managed by wallets so we don't need to create a new identities systems on every new service re register for so. We don't only have the tokens that we can treat that are transferable Will don't have you know that that we were. We can create market around these assets. They represent what we also have. A credential tokens that are tied to our identity or that have limited transfer abilities such as the flight tickets. You might be able to tickets can be tokenist. You might be able to transfer them Under specific conditions. But they're generally tied to your identity

Coronavirus stimulus: Lawmakers unveil $908 billion bipartisan relief proposal
"A new coronavirus fiscal stimulus package are resuming in Washington during a Senate Banking Committee hearing Tuesday, Fed chair Jerome Powell called the economic outlook extraordinarily uncertain and the economic downturn has not fallen equally on all Americans and those least able to bear to shoulder. The burden have been hardest hit. The latest proposal hit the table $900 billion, said to be a bipartisan compromise. Because it does include 160 billion for state and local governments. The White House and Senate Republicans have in the past offered zero for that, while Democrats have been pushing for several 100 billion Treasury Secretary Steven Yushin, once overall limited help. Based upon the recent economic data, I continue to believe that a targeted fiscal package is the most appropriate federal response, Senator Sherrod Brown of Ohio those slams the administration's response and said it's time for bold action, not retreat. We've had a president who was simply given up one leading the country. And as far as I can tell Secretary Mnuchin, you're leading the country worse off. Then you found it. So the partisan bickering goes on, and negotiations have stalled repeatedly since July, while federal unemployment programs and mortgage and foreclosure protections dry up on January 1st.

For unemployed workers there is interest on both sides of the aisle in breaking this logjam on capitol hill surrounding neta virus. Relief package and today more than thirty democrats are getting behind a new push to extend expiring unemployment benefits for twelve million workers before they go away at the end of the year. Virginia senator mark warner is leading this effort with a letter to the leadership of both parties. That says letting these payments lapsed during the holiday season would be cruel and that it would hit the services sector and the art especially hard. The letter says these workers are all facing job loss. It has nothing to do with their skills abilities or performance now there have been some preliminary conversations in the senate on bipartisan measures. That might be able to pass alongside the government funding bill next week and so this letter is just one indication. Democrats appear to be coalescing around the problem of what they're calling the benefits cliff also today senators ron wyden and sherrod brown the top democrats on the finance and banking committees as well as colorado senator michael bennet. They're unveiling bill that would extend these expiring provisions and it would also reinstate that six hundred dollars in enhanced unemployment benefits that has been more controversial and has been one of the sticking points in these broader negotiations surprise. This could be a sign that democrats might be willing to accept something smaller than that to you. Trillion dollar deal

"It up. So what's interesting so I did it just because I didn't have anything else to do and I just kind of wanted to see if I could change it. I never want this to be my life either. I I had way different plans and then fucking being on stage for two to three hundred people telling fucking joke, you know, like my my way was was to someone else to you know, like the person who who wasn't the stand-up but but was like, you know funny it's in my eyes. So I thought I can could just fed and try to do it. So, okay, and I totally get that, you know, I've bought so so like how did it go that first round of? Actually, you know what before that so when you're when you're here in New York City did the the alcoholism. Oh, yeah. Most of my role dog my twin sister, man. We we were doing it up, you know having our little whatever concealed Bev Raaz, like I said, you know we lived. Yeah, we I live with my aunt and that's the one who live like right on the Queens Long Island line. So the commute into city was a crazy long, so we would pregame on the way into the City and then just, you know, do whatever go to bars and stuff and Yeah, it all seemed fun. It all seemed fun, you know until it didn't I guess like Yeah, you know my rent was fairly cheap and I was working full-time and of course New York pays more than most wage states in the country. So I was yeah, I was having fun. I was having a blast now. Now as you're doing as you're like starting stand-up like God, did you go to like I assume that you went too? Yes, I did. I remember distinctly my first open mic. It was on 11th Street and I was run by hugs kisses and laughs Kevin. Yeah, well Monica and over, but originally it was Heaven and I feel so bad. I can't think of his name cuz he's the guy who booked me. He looks like an atom. I don't think that's his name. You just looked like an atom. But I know he's a lawyer and he used to do like this lawyers and laughs and whatever thing but yeah. This isn't laughs. That was my first open mic. I really liked that space and I like I think the reason I liked stand up for the same reason. I like a a because it's a room full of people that are just open. You know, how long I think that that's such a beautiful thing. I love open people. I I don't like people who are like to tell like get out of here. I've never the time for you may get out of here. And even if it wasn't necessarily true, and because I love stand-up I was like I just loved I loved Mike's cuz it was like I was laughing gas and you know, it's like oh, I gotta buy a drink. No problem. Your your first stand-up Open Mic was it always miss Tracy and it's funny because I used that same material. I worked it out for like a month or two before my first show, of course, it wasn't bringer and I bombed the show, but I think did well at most Mike's office. I don't know what that means. I still don't know what that means after being comedy for a while. As it's it's always like that. It's it's either one of the two like either either your bomb at the mic with the material then do or she'll and everyone loves you cuz they're fuckingawesome or you do well at the open mic and then you have a new find it will show it just construction. Sometimes jokes are Comedians and sometimes jokes are first of the month in Seattle. I call them civilians as you're as you're doing stand-up, you know, you know since since the whole thing is you got to buy a drink, you know for the most part that just kind of kept you going on on the path of yeah. Oh Kentucky magill's yeah. It was like, oh my if I invited a friend not bringer and and they didn't have any money. I would buy their drinks. You know what I mean? I'd be like, well, you can't drink them cuz I'm buying them dead. But these are your to drink minimums and thank you very much. Like yeah, so it will work for comedy. I don't think would have I don't think would have been able to see my addiction in action because I was like doing shows and doing doing well at most shows but then some shows I would drink too much before I went on stage and then bomb and it was like it was it was comedy that showed me that I was getting out of control. It was the mic because sometimes I would do really great and then other times I would do terrible like just nasty floppy and then of course, we all record ourselves, so I would record myself and listen back and be like what the what hell was that like, what was that song? And yeah, so that was it was was beneficial for me to have that mirror on myself. I'm actually never thought that or said that out loud so loud Revelation right here on your podcast. So at what point did you realize that this was a problem and you decided to stop drinking and abusing alcohol home? I I think that What? What brought it to my what brought it to my attention was just that it had always been this like safe place for me. Like drinking was bought a safe place for me, which is ironic because of all the trouble that you tend to get into when you've had too much to drink but as far as my feeling like More confident and brave and all these things that I felt like I didn't have when I wasn't drunk it stopped working. You know, it stopped working for a bit for the what I saw were the benefits of it liquid courage and the being so charming and funny and Yeah, it it stopped working. Yeah. And then I just feeling bad. So yeah. So then so then you then left New York City to to.

I was working a full-time job and I was going to church and things like that and my friends I just I was in so many weddings at one point and I was just like so over it off and I think what happened to was that a lot of the friends that I like departed with were getting married and having kids. So I think moved back to New York because I just did it once I really, you know, I didn't mind having sex. I didn't mind dating but I really didn't want to get married or have kids. So I left Virginia because I felt like that was inevitable cuz it was everywhere. I looked and yes, I was back to New York and I would have moved back sooner, but I wanted to move back with my father's blessing because I knew that if anything happened I would need his help. And so I think tried to move back when I was like twenty one. That was like nah, and and I'm I'm glad he did. I don't know. I mean I came here and and and just let all the way loose. I did not move here to be a comedian. I moved here and because I was from here and I had family here. And it was just like I wanted to not be where I was and I wanted to be someplace, you know, somewhat familiar. So I didn't move back to New York to pursue anything, but just my own freedom and a sort of working at the Gap 34th Street Herald Square and am I met this really cool girl who Moved who did move to New York for a reason she moved here from California to dance and I went with her to a show. It was her first show at Alvin Ailey home. She was jazzed up and I was like, yeah, dude, I support you. I'll go to your show. I bought a ticket and everything and it was her and a bunch of her friends that she you know that they were closed and I was just some wage higher end up chatting it with the bartender all night, and that's how I got into stand-up because the bartender was a stand up and he was like, are you a stand up and I said no way Jose. And he said but I think you are I said you said no, I think you are. I was like, I don't know. think you're just trying to smash and he was like I was like, I think you are and he was like no the show and he told the booker about me cuz he was just very convinced that I was a stand-up and so he was like hang around till after the show. You know, I got you tickets. I got you know, got you a seat front row. This was at New York comedy club and okay I go and I'm having a I'm having a great time. I love comedy.

"Know all my adolescence and college Years in Virginia and then I moved back to New York in 2011. Okay. Yeah, I was like 26 or something. Yeah, so so you're you're born in Queens? So how many how long were you in Queens be before you moved ten years off like my dad my dad stayed, you know, my dad has never left Queens like yeah, and so I was you know, it was like several times a year would come back to spend time with him. So I was back and forth. Yeah. Okay. So like how was it? How was it growing up in New York City when you were like, what year? Were you born 85,000 for you. I'm asking the questions here lady. Yeah, I was I was born in Brooklyn born in born at home. But Brookdale hospital and Brooklyn. Yeah, so like so pretty much. We're like we're you know around runs same age. I think I'm a year older than you should be pretty much kind of grew up in in that same 90s and 2000. Yeah. Yeah, but like I never like I never really went to Queens or how one feels like spur for you the 90s cuz you know, the only thing I have to go Walkabout is what not said. So like, you know, well, that's the beauty of queens and I honestly think that most bulbs are like this where you know, you've got your neighborhoods that are like whoa. Whoa and then you got your neighborhoods that are like, oh this is cute. And so I was born in Far Rockaway home and I know you in the nineties from what I can remember it was you know, You know there there's projects and we lived near a public park. So, you know, there's always there's always a Riff Raff at a park. Yeah in New York. I work for anything. Really. I remember when I lived in Texas. was always smoking weed in Parks if it was legal like take me to jail home, but Yeah, and then so like but my aunt we spend a lot of time with my aunts house and she lives and like she lives like where Queens and Long will meet. So it's pretty Suburban over there. It's getting a little more like populated because there's a lot more like there's a club over there now and and like a brunch spot, you know for when the Jamaican girls are feeling bougie and there's a 24-hour diner that's been there forever, but it's it's interesting cuz I think we you know, because we have family all over Queens we kind of you know, me and my siblings were able to see like, you know, we took in sort of like a broken down, you know, just a very humble apartment. And then going to like my aunt and uncle's or even my grandmother who didn't live too far from us, but that just goes to show like, you know, you turn the corner in New York and it's like you're in a totally different way in New York City. It's like a totally different place. You're like, oh, I just saw a crack head around the corner, but now people over here have hydrangeas in the yard. What? Yeah, yeah. Yeah. So yeah, and it's funny cuz when we lived in Virginia, it was very similar like we lived right around the corner from the projects some not much changed except that there was just less people. So so you were you were here up until 10 so then at what point like Thursday to Virginia, what was the reason that your family moved to Virginia? Well, you know, I don't know who's going to listen this but I'm an open book. So whatever song, you know, my my parents divorced. Well, they separated I'm not even really sure when they divorce cuz you know, how black people are they don't really get minimum wage. They even never get married or they never not get married like they're so my parents separated and I think a lot of it had to do with the fact that At like my dad was really living the life. And of course, he's awesome. Now. My dad is the best. I'm a total Daddy's girl. It's crazy. Yeah, but he thought he had to go through some years of Trials and there're lots of error and trials all the time all the trials and all the tears and I think that I don't know if it was that we got evicted or my parents are just like we can't raise all these daggone kids in this city like cuz I'm one of 600 and And that's including half siblings and step-siblings. It's that's just the kids that came from my mom is six of them. So and so I think that back then like my mom had friends that had moved out to VA and she was like, oh, well, someone says this city is nice and my dad was my birthday and also have feeling just because of all the like, you know, not not our parents generation so much but our grandparents generation, you know, it was wrong to Tori for men to serve in the military, Virginia is such a huge military state. So my dad had all these Aunts Uncles and cousins and Virginia. So I think he had it in his mind like coming from Brooklyn and Queens and then like on the summer vacations go on in Virginia and it being like this like open landscape job. Ben everybody had a yard and you know in a jog and he was like lets you know, so they agree they were able to agree in the time where they weren't agreeing on much of anything that were able to agree like hey, Virginia the place. Uh, I feel like I ran off with that question. Did I lose you know, so like so so what was life like was life easier for you and Virginia compared to New York City. No. No, I'm still poor. I mean, yeah, but like, you know, it's just it's just a different landscape like like New York City is just like all in your face twenty-four fucking 7, like, you know, Virginia doesn't seem to have that much of like a twenty-four-hour basis like when like, there's no no you're right, but it's funny because you know, even though we moved to the Suburban, you know State wage. But also shout out to Nova which is like, you know, Northern Virginia and that's sort of more, you know, because it's leaning towards DC. It's got more Vibe up there, but it's still super Suburban. Yeah, but so my mom never learned to drive ever. She's like a New Yorker. She's like I'll if there's a bus we're taking it, you know, and if there isn't a bus, then you can't go there I guess and we're just not we don't go to that place where there's no buses. So it's still, you know, we still kind of had that like City kid Vibe like I remember when.
"sherrod" Discussed on The Broken Comic Podcast
"To keep going through this stuff. So, you know as things start up. The only thing for me to do is just do the the street level. So I just pretty much did open my expand for a long time and I would just do like 4 to 5 open mics at night from home. You know, I would start at like oh man sometimes you know before I start working I would I would start like to and like like eleven, you know at you know, 11:00 12:00 midnight club or after work, you know, I would probably end that like one got take that train back home and home by one, you know, we'll buy two and then I got a I got a wake-up five hours later to go to fucking work which was a lot of stress and then put a lot of weight on my shoulders men to try to like not only try to be funny but try to be up for work, you know, and also have a good time with friends like you're trying to trying to live life trying to be a comedian doesn't really match with each other, you know, like you're you really have to You kind of have to pick yet you you can go either War but if you really want to have a good time with your friends or whatever. The fuck are good friends comic you're really gotta pick because you get the harder you go and comedy the less the less of a less of a social life you have and I didn't necessarily want to do that, you know, so I you know, I chose my I tried doing my best to do both and it is what it and and and it happened. It happened the way it happened, you know, but the cool thing that's sort of happening was that like I did not I did a I did audition for this comedy club on the Upper East Side and I passed the audition which was which was awesome. Like yes. I'm I'm I'm making me strong know. I'm doing the club rude not the not the street, you know, and it was awesome. It was awesome for for about 2 and 1/2 years and then I saw the realized that you know. Not only this about the way to get in but no one sing me no one sees you to see if you're progressing at all. There's no one in the office. Yeah, there's fucking like, you know waiters and waitresses, which is awesome as cool. And they see you when they can kind of give you, you know, a heads up to people but really how often does that fucking happen, you know God it's so I'm sitting there, you know bust my ass going that late night to keep getting home at 2 just for like just to hang around, switch is awesome and one, but when it comes to actually stage time, you know at this club It's On Any Given night. It can be any it could be anywhere from two people at the end of night to maybe change and possibly but you don't know it's it's a It's up in the air, especially if someone goes on before you and walks them you might just lose three to five people so that so then you're just doing comedy for a few people with those times that I did have doing that were fine. You know, some of them were fine. Like I got I got good jokes out. I got people to laugh even though it was a small smoking people and it was fine. But off a certain point is like am I going to keep doing this forever? Especially if no one's there to see how you know, see how you want to see how good you are. Like what what the fuck is the point of keep doing this month? And that's that's that's really that's really how I feel is just for why am I doing this? Why you know, Why am I keep going, you know, but you know I as and this is the time when like I'm just starting to break because like this hard work that I'm doing isn't paying off just all the braking but I keep I keep pushing in there. I just keep keep pushing and and I realized like that's that's the thing with a lot of Economics, you know, a lot of comics is like why the fuck am I doing this and it's even more it's even more. So when as a comic when you fall off into a vice, you know, when I talked to my buddy John snaps in season one, one of the things that I realized that a lot of the comics have a have a battle with drugs and alcohol. Especially especially in New York City where drugs and alcohol or around the corner of a fucking time and one person that I became cool with and in the comedy scene in New York City with my girlfriend Britney Sher are you know, actually, you know, we became a little bit more than friends, but I'm not even going to go there right now at the moment, but you know, she was a funny person that that I connected to and not and not only because we both work convenience, but we were black comedians trying to come up, you know, and that connection that we have is still good to this day and I'm always happy to be around her and her present she is a ball of fun. She is a ball of rightness. And and that's the one thing that I love about her. And I thought now would never love her forever. She's amazing. One of the things that I didn't know about Britney is that she was falling into a hole of alcoholism and they were dead. Point where they started to flock things up for her and her personal life and she needed to get that point to why am I doing this to help get off the wagon? I think that's how it goes on the wagon off the wagon. I don't feel like I know but I think that's how it goes. And and that's what she needed and I and I think that's what that's what people need to like kind of get them out of their funks all their addiction is a finally wake up like it was it was really great talking to her about her doing comedy, you know her fall into alcohol and how she lifted herself back up. So without further Ado. This is me talking to my girlfriend, Brittany Sherrod. It was like a while before like I think I think the last time hung out was like sometime last year or riding my at that show that in Brooklyn. Yeah in Brooklyn. Yeah, it was so good seeing you there. Oh my God, it was I like, oh shit fucking Britney. Sure. I like it's been like forever. It's been such a fucking long time on my glad bulbs. I'm like, like, I'm like a ghost. You know that haunt. You think I'm dead and then I just come back up. I'm like, okay. Yeah, dude. So I'm yeah, I'm glad to see that you know that you're here and still around I I know like you you moved in you I did and 2016. Okay. I moved to Texas for like less than a year cuz I hated it there, mom lives there and most of my siblings lived there and I just I was so depressed here in New York that maybe if I just You know change my scenery. So it turns out depression follows you wherever don't matter where you go. It's it's fucking it's like off like and what a nice view we have. Oh,.
Masks, Covid & Nutrition Highlights
"Hey thanks for listening I'm your host, Samantha Leigh Right today, we have a slightly different kinds of episode coming your way in light of all of the things happening with covid nineteen. I, wanted to do a special episode highlighting the foundations of Health for you all focused around the corona virus really wanted to cover the topic of mask specifically because there's so many questions that people have centered around mask right now and I know that I, personally have been wanting some clarity around. How mask are effective why are people saying sometimes, they're not and what the debate on both sides, and then also specifically, what else can we be doing in our lives to boost our immune systems protect ourselves from the scary seaward that's going around right now. So today's episode unlike most of our shows don't focus a lot around the topic of central oils but I really wanted the opportunity to talk to Dr Furman whose work I really admire if you're not familiar with his work. I think you're really going to like what he has to say. So we'll get to that interview soon. But first, let's talk about essential oils for a little while I wanted to share my favorite oils from this past week. Am that has been the thieves chest rub? That is a fairly new product coming from young living right now, if you haven't experienced it yet, it is a chest rub formula that comes in this great little squeeze bottle where you don't have to get your hands all greasy to apply it, which is one of my favorite things about it. So if you WANNA check it out or if you want to try to make your own version of it, you could. Buy One of those empties kind of squirt bottles from Amazon or wherever, or just use like an old squirt bottle. You've got lying around anything that will allow you to fill your own formula of stuff and then squeeze a little bit of the top will do and it is a combination of eucalyptus essential oil menthol and camphor. As you might be able to hear, I've got a little bit of flim stuck down in my chest and I've been putting the thieves chester up on at night especially at night. When you lay down, you've got that extra kind of weight of gravity and that's when when the cough likes to come out. So putting the chest rub on is so soothing. It smells so good. Now, if you WANNA make your own kind of chest rub concoction than I would use a base of coconut oil and maybe even some CA- cow butter or and or beeswax shaving shaven down because what you want is a real thick carrier oil base for this because you don't want the oil soak into your chest and your skin too. Quickly, you wanted to act as sort of an on going vapor that's going to be releasing from that chest rub so you WANNA thick carrier oil base again, beeswax is great for that. If you have some of that, you can shave it down and melted a bit and then from there do a real strong concoction if. You're making a small batch may be twenty to thirty drops of an essential oil nice and strong of mainly Eucalyptus. That's the Go-to for all things respiratory. So whatever eucalyptus oils you have around or blends of our great. If you want to add some other things in there to support your immune system, I would throw in some peppermint open up those nasal passageways maybe nice. Irby oil like Rosemary or time or Oregano. T tree is Great Franken Census Grey also any of those oils you have thrown into that nice thick carrier oil use it as a gesture of as needed or check out the thieves chest rub is easy to apply real strong, real potent, and give it five stars. And now, I'm super excited to share this week's DIY dugout recipe. It comes from Deborah Shannon in Atkins Arkansas and it is a recipe for a citrus phys the sounds. So delicious in glass combined the following ingredients and mix thoroughly half a can to one can of sparkling water one packet of Stevia, two drops, grapefruit essential oil, and then optional if you have any inning sherrod around at one to two ounces of Nick. Sharad. If you don't have Ningxia ride, which is a great will ferry puree juice that young living makes you can add in maybe another dark red kind of juice like Cherry juice pomegranate or something, and then ice. So just combine all that and you've got yourself a citrus phys.
"sherrod" Discussed on In the Bubble with Andy Slavitt
"Ooh. I'm having a hard time getting my character up there to tell out either. You Doing Andy. How. Are you Connie I'm good. Thank you. It's good to see your face. Where's my husband? Sharat. Qatar marriage. Already there is. Talk everybody. Andy. How are you? Good, how are you doing good work throughout this you've been really good. Thank you okay. Honey hit your voice memo thing they said we can donate Taiwan. Yeah. You can hang on what do I do here. Number utilities I go to utility. But I'm GONNA find utilities a high utility and hit the Red Button and Welcome to voice memos. I'm now recording. What's the daylight for you guys down during the pandemic? Well right now share, it's normally on Monday he'd be gone already. Doing. My thing I got a new book I'll have a call to this week, and of course I'm tracking using various interviews shared would be on the road right now he's home. When share it's home i. hear. So many of his conference calls that are so sobering because he's talking to some of the most vulnerable populations in the country right it basically what it is or the people who are trying to help them right now teachers doctors public. So it's a different life in that way, but and then I'm a lecturer at talk but I just want to say the one thing that we were happy to discover. We've never had this much time together. We were together forty five straight days when it first went Thursday I sat down and we married sixteen years. We've never had that amount of time together. Stop is it turns out we really do like each other's company which is Great. No Right. Yeah but it's Working all the time as you know. Work, from home a lot already and start teaching in soon. By remote when you're accustomed to working home, this isn't quite the judgment that it's been for Sherrod. So Sharon you talk now know we. Monday morning. Believe it Monday votes Monday night. Come back. Thursday. Get home at. Eight or nine or ten o'clock Thursday night and work Friday. Weeks, we aren't accession session, which is a third of the time is just conference calls all day long. With YWCA PRESIDENT SOR small businesses. Restaurants. People that advocate for the unemployed. ACP leaders, just people that housing advocates, what we do to help and I just went what's puzzling to me about all this is that how I mean what my favorite Lincoln quote one, my favorite Lincoln quotes this I gotta get out of the White House and go get my public opinion bath and I don't know how anybody who's in elective office can possibly think that there is no sense of urgency that we should not be engaged whether it's extending unemployment or rental assistance or how do you open I spent. A lot of time with school board members, principals, teachers, cafeteria workers, superintendents, walking through how they have to open the school safely they can open them but open them safely takes a whole lot of money. They're getting cuts from the feds from the from the state government obviously because their revenues are down, they get their squeeze with their own local tax revenues. So we've got to put tens and tens of billions of dollars directly to schools in we've got to trust them to know how to spend it McConnell and trump. Essentially. Don't trust local communities, local governments, local school boards they WanNa put all these strings attached to it, and they've got to figure out how to open safely and they need federal dollars to help. You can't hear that if you're paying any attention to your community to your state the country. With go back, talk about a deal the deal I in a bit but line and I were actually just thinking about how you guys both speak in many respects two and four working people better than most. One of the things you guys have in common. So maybe we should just start there. We were talking actually about the Industrial Midwest last night. And how the Democrats lost it for a generation stopped really paying attention to people out there not you'd Sherrid. But like you know more at a larger party. KANU. Your book obviously talks a lot about You know people who live there all generations and the challenges they face and you know especially in the more rural parts of the area yet shared keeps winning right out there. So What do you think about Biden's chances like what is he need to do in this race to actually win that area or at least not not lose too much of it. Needs to and I think he has campaigned through the eyes of workers as he needs even more importantly to govern through the eyes of workers, and that is to make the contrast and trump has clearly betrayed workers in the state. He's betrayed workers at Lordstown where after the auto plan announced, it was shutting down or cutting back trump said, don't sell your home we'll bring these jobs back. He lifted not even a finger to try to help He won't raise minimum wage. It's been a dozen years since minimum wage has been. raised. He took away the overtime rule that Vice President Biden I flew on his vice president's plane to Columbus to announce with the Secretary Labor one, hundred, thirty, thousand Ohio would've gotten a raise time and a half overtime pay people making thirty and forty thousand a year trump took away two thirds of those raises. So it is secretary Labor trump as appointed who spent his career fighting workers in especially fighting unions as a corporate lawyer all these kinds of things. So trump is clearly betrayed workers by needs to make that case. To all workers in the dignity of work is about it's he'll love your country you fight for the people make it work, and it's whether you a clock or swipe a badge whether you're essential worker or not. And Biden specially paying attention to the essential workers grocery store workers. The bus drives one, hundred, fifty bus drivers of died from the Krona Virus paying attention to the supermarket or the drug store checkout person to person people that clean. Hotel. Rooms and and people did prepare food and provide security and people that change sheets in hospitals. All those people by paying attention to trump is abandoned them and betrayed them. So I I don't subscribe to the view that we've lost him for generation I. Think they went to trump because they thought might get better many many of them union on your like seeing that it's not getting better. It's also important to emphasize over and over again that we're talking about working class people, we're not talking about just white people. Let's start with that and that has to be emphasized and over and over again and I am, of course, thinking a lot about the class of women. Not. Just because they are so much the focus I mean first of all. I, come from that I come from the working class and I talked to working class women all the time increasingly. So since my novel came out because it's about working class women, the other thing I keep thinking about is what happened two, thousand, eighteen you mentioned how share it keeps winning anyone two years after trump won. Trump went by a little bit over eight shared one by over seven points. Share is not allowed to sit on any of the focus groups but I do I sat in on the focus groups with trump voters throughout that campaign year and we split them by because you know what we don't women are not GonNa talk much and what was interesting to me and keep this the fall of two, thousand eighteen. The men were still lost to us the mail trump voters two weeks after John McCain had died they were talking about. How two of them in the focus wasn't a war hero because he'd been captured, which is straight out of trump's playbook, right. But the women were peeling off and I'll never forget the consultant sitting next saying this is the first time I've heard trump voters say they regret voting for Donald Trump and they were peeling away on two issues at that point those family separations at the border and healthcare think about that healthcare and this was in two thousand. Eighteen this is.
"sherrod" Discussed on In the Bubble with Andy Slavitt
"Welcome to in the Bubble Anti Slavic and Zach. We have a great show today the voices you just heard were Connie Schultz and Sherrod Brown reading as they do in their virtual library in the Cleveland Public Library for Kids, we have both on the show today. Connie is a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist commentary. The judges have called her out for her what they described as her pungent columns and her voice. For the underdog and underprivileged she's also an author of her first fiction book called daughters of Iraqi town. She really doesn't amazing job chronicling life of the working class and underserved people share it is I gotta? Tell you is a wonderful wonderful guy. He is probably one of the senators that is Dead focused on the life of essential workers people on fixed incomes, people on low incomes. He's in his third term in the Senate and the two of them are great individually. But I think you'll see how special they are together my wife. Lana is joining me for the interview. We are going to have a kind of a four way conversation which I gotTA. Tell you. It was one of the favorite conversations that we had listened to them and you will wish you know knew them personally if you don't know them personally. Now. Let us get Zach to give us a fact. With the world covered case count. Reaching twenty million I thought it'd be a good time to estimate how many Cova cases the world and the US have actually had. The reason, this twenty million number is so much smaller than the real number is largely because of a lack of testing and assumed medications. So. Many US what we know. and. A couple of estimates from the whol and data scientist Johann. Goo. About the death rate and I'm GONNA find a range of more realistic numbers. So starting with the world case count and you have to remember that this isn't active infections. Infections at any point. the infection fatality rate or the death rate is estimated to be between point two, five, point, six percent. Assuming the seven, hundred, thirty, seven, thousand deaths. Is Accurate we would be looking at one, hundred, twenty, two, million cases if the I F R were point six percent and two hundred ninety, four, million if the eye of were point two, five percent. So somewhere between one point five and three percent of the world has had covid nineteen. Now, for the US, you can assume death rate range of point two, five, point six again percent. and. US has had one, hundred, sixty, five, thousand reported deaths are available assume correct. And this means that there have been between twenty seven, point, five, million and sixty, six, million cases, which is way more than the five point one, nine, million confirmed cases. Okay. So that's a lot of numbers. What's your big takeaway? My biggest takeaway is it really shows just how bad the testing has been that we have in the US between five and thirteen times as many cases as we actually think we have just as were either not testified people not tested enough people or both with the President says we're testing too many people I would disagree. Okay well I hope he doesn't have to debate you because I think your logic. All right. Thanks lots. All right. Before we get to county and to share it I wanNA just cover a couple of update topics. Probably the most interesting development right now is we are beginning to see hopefully the proliferation of new types of tests that is The diagnostic tests that tell us whether or not? We have covid nineteen we have. A hopefully faster tests cheaper tests higher turnaround time tests that is going to be one of the keys to being able to get back to normal life of course, which attests people you've got to isolate them. And you've got to be able to contact trace all the people that came into contact with. But that is I think the promising news around the south we are seeing cases begin to flatten and we are In, for August, where the death toll will come down just a little bit and of course, everybody's favourite topic still school colleges Wilczek go to Penn will he not? That's the big question. Zach we will though shortly so far they've told them he's going all of you I know are making decisions, tough decisions for your kids your grandkids what you're going to do not easy I will say that the next few months are going to be challenging some schools will start some pull back. Some will be online, but the hope should be by January two have squared away enough where we can get people back to school safely I think tests will be a big part of that. All right. So let me get. Lana and then let's get. County and share.

"sherrod" Discussed on What A Day
"Yeah I. I don't think there's enough for for moderate income workers here that that always bear the brunt of these things I mean I heard in these negotiations senator to me. I was in the room. I was in the room by phone because I think we shouldn't be exposing ourselves to each other as much as Mitch. Mcconnell has sort of prescriptive that we prescribe that we do and these meetings but to do these phone but I heard him say when I said we need. We need specific language so people can be affected. Twenty five percent of people who rent in this country spend more than half their income on on housing on rent. So there's going to be all kinds of potential all kinds of problems with addiction. When I said in that meeting that how important it was to have language for because he said Hey. You've got all this liberal unemployment insurance in your sending the checkout. What more do they need like these people? Are you know in talk cotton so I mean we we've gotTA WE'VE GOTTA focus on modern income workers. They continue to get screwed by this. This system and are hurt. More in the krona virus than than surly airline execs. But but you know everybody's hurting but we've got to focus their. We've got a particularly focus on how to get Protective Equipment For for all health care workers not just those in the hospitals but those are making the rounds home-to-home like homecare workers and nurses that do that And because the president show no leadership I let a letter to get the president to invoke something called the defense production. Act so you could get. Companies are making this stuff and trump trump basically said yes and then. Doing it didn't do anything with it so I'm trying to do some things with a bunch of companies around the country that I know to get them to transition into doing more so all of those things that need to be part of the next round absent presidential leadership. Why do you think that there has been all of this confusion from him about the Defense Production Act because we've sort of seen on a day-to-day basis? Either him or you know another administration official talking about using it for one thing or the other and then it seems to change again within twelve hours or something what what is it. There is the hangup. Well I I was. I was puzzled by it until it was explained to me from somebody that sort of knows trump better than I do personally and said he doesn't think government should ever tell a company what to do. I mean he's a successful businessman in some ways. He's made a lot of money. Not as much as he says but he's done it by often using government but he doesn't think government should ever tell a business. I mean he he always here. He is a business guy himself. He resented he resented civil rights laws in terms of renting apartments. He resented worker safety laws. He resented worker laws. Generally 'cause he wanted to be able to be a cowboy and do whatever he wanted. Well I think he just personally bothers him that he doesn't. It's his philosophy that he doesn't think much. Tell business what to do. Well there's a national emergency and he's not a businessman anymore. He's the President United States. And everybody I talked to. I'm doing commerce call again this afternoon with twenty hospitals in Ohio and I everybody. I've talked to on this from fire chiefs who send their men and women out on rescue missions. I'm Richardson rescue squads. Not knowing what they're going to see but need protect recoil all of them are just dying for this stuff literally and the president's just talking about it what are some of the actual mechanisms by which he can be compelled to to invoke it. I know that there's there's some talk of Different legislation around there on on DP. But what do you think is the best course of action here to get the president to actually move on that Kim needs to me? And he's got the connection. Does he needs to sort of survey all the manufacturing landscape the country's gotTA figure which companies can most quickly and efficiently and safely transition. I'm talking to a guy at noon today. Who makes who makes Cue Tips and they're made in Cleveland. It's not a Cleveland Company. But they're made in Cleveland They could they could pretty easily transition into cotton swabs. It's a different technology. It's a different Cotton I guess a different fabric and it's a longer stick but it's a mess. Something they could do well they need. They need to be paid to do it. Because it's not as cheap as it sounds to transition and they need to guaranteed market so the president simply goes to companies like that. Said we want you to do this. Here's what we'll pay you you. You'RE GONNA lose money on it. Here's what we'll do at the end when this is over so you can get back to your business. I mean the government spent a lot of money being spent a lot of money on the airlines. That the airline execs will find ways of taking some of it. We sure as hell can spend money helping these companies transition so so homecare workers ago. House to house in Mansfield or Wadsworth are Akron. Ohio can be safe For themselves and for their families and for their patients another question. That pertains the timeline here. Because we hear a lot of different things from you know. Health officials elected officials in the present. Obviously obviously you know trump said that he wanted to get the economy back on its feet by Easter. What do you think when you hear something like that? I think it's time to stop listening to. I think it's time for the networks or whoever the cable companies or whatever to quit quit broadcasting the president's alive speeches 'cause I think they don't serve any purpose they mislead they they You know he says take certain medicines. Somebody died from over taking too much. One of those medicines not long ago I think we listened to health professionals. I think it was an idiotic thing to say I mean you don't you can't set a date. Nobody I know thinks that nobody who's involved in any care of human beings. That was smart statement. I know he wants to get the economy up again due to But the way to do it is to get people safe and feeling safe and being safe if we'd had a seven or eight weeks start on this instead of the delay that came about because of the president's actions we'd be far far ahead of the curve now and yet given all that it's interesting there is some polling data showing that that you know the response or trump at least as being viewed somewhat positively at the moment. Do you do you get concerned that there isn't a strong enough kind of counter message to him from from Democrats on current virus. Well I think that if people the more people pay attention the more they see how incompetent and dishonest he's been during this crisis I think pulling numbers are up. I don't pay a lot of attention to pulse about this kind now. I know a bit as you said but point. Numbers are up because whenever there's a crisis the president's numbers go up. I mean George Bush. I was up to ninety percent. Favorable George Bush during After September Eleventh George Bush. Junior was it I don't know eighty five or eighty or something so people always look to the president just the fact that they they're walking by TV and they see him on standing there looking presidential. I guess Dave on some number of people say yeah that's good. He's strong leader well. But it's still only up to fifty for low fifties. I mean he other presidents would be sixty or seventy if they were presidents that actually were competent and knew how to handle this. That was senator. Sherrod Brown of Ohio will continue to be tracking the government's response as this story moves forward..
An Interview with 'Clinton Cash' Author Peter Schweizer
"Show and Peter how are you I'm great bill great to be with you now let's talk about the the book and I would note that down whenever I Google you and it comes up saying the controversial author of the massive cellar Clinton cash your controversial step back from this I look at that I look at Republicans bush forty one knew bush forty three left office know monetization one on Reagan left office he went to his ranch and now trump is actually cost them money in office what is it and the progressive mindset and this is in the mindset of libertarians are conservatives or moderates the progressive mindset says we got to monetize we got to make serious money what is there in the mindset that causes out to transpire well I think in the progressive mindset if you serve in government you're you're engaged and angelic behavior I mean you're you're you're not being selfish and greedy like people in the private sector and with that comes a sense of entitlement so in a sense that that that that you're deserving of data center you see this I mean you know we we broke the story on Joe Biden hunter Biden you know the million dollar your sweetheart deal hunter got from Ukrainians literally three weeks after Joe Biden his father as vice president is appointed point person on Ukraine policy Joe Biden says oh it looks bad but there's nothing wrong with it why because in Joe Biden's mind he is serve the public I'll put that in quotation marks since nineteen seventy two and his family deserves it so the idea is I'm I'm getting things for you it's time for me to monetize my fame and fortune thanks to that character the amazing thing to me is there sits in the oval office Barack Hussein Obama he sends Joe Biden to be in charge of Ukraine quickly his son starts making three million dollars over three years about eighty thousand a month and and and Joe Biden's mine and bomb is mine it wasn't appropriate for Joe Biden is ceda hunter hunter who's got it a sordid past you can't do that when I'm over here to get rid of corruption in Ukraine one hundred did was participate in it why didn't Obama stop yeah you didn't stop it because either he didn't care or you didn't have a full picture and I think it's just that he didn't care and what they keep saying that you people don't understand about the binds it's it's not just hunter and it's not just you crane hunter ran a veritable United Nations of corruption he did deals in China he deals in Kazakhstan deals an area he had no expertise no background any took in the money and we know that because we have the bank records related to a a corruption case involving hunter by his business partner but even more than that bill you have what I call the Biden fives and I talk about this in the book the Biden chapter seventy pages long five members of the Biden family only one of those being hunter cashed in while he was vice president you got his brother James whose father Frank his sister Valerie and his daughter Ashley's husband they all cashed in on sweetheart deals while Joe was vice president if systematic corruption when you're talking about the blinds about two weeks ago headline FBI recently rates business connected to James Biden Joe Biden's brother F. B. I. sounds like more trouble the company in question americorps holdings acquires and manages real hospitals declared bankruptcy in December now the F. B. I.'s raiding the home of the CEO of the company grand white and also others that that doesn't seem to be any interest by the FBI or by others to go after the Clintons the binds the Obamas what is their structurally in the mind of the F. B. I. I'm not talking the ninety nine percent I mean the one percent at the main base and justice the art of Robert F. Kennedy building what is there in their mind that we look for reasons to exonerate the Democrats but we look for reasons to implicate the Republicans what is what I think a lot of a bill has to do with what I call the permanent political class I mean Joe Biden is is you know he's older now but he's basically been a permanent fixture in Washington for forty years a guy like Donald Trump is going to calm I don't don trump's gonna stay in Washington DC when he leaves the White House he's gonna leave so there's a club atmosphere is by bipartisan it's the permanent political class and the reason that you don't have some Republicans warning to investigate Joe Biden is either their family is involved in some level of similar activity order hoping to at some point so this kind of the unwritten rule that we don't go after a prominent political figures and that's the reason we need to be shouting this from the rooftops we need to exposing it because here's the thing voters care about this stuff it's the reason I'm convinced that trump won in twenty sixteen and even though I think Bernie's ideas are are completely wrong for the country what's fueling his candidacy is the same anger at the corrupt establishment in Washington DC if if something universal on both sides of the aisle let's talk about your work on Bernie Sanders until your research about the hundreds of tens of millions of dollars to a mysterious company linked to his wife many thought he was a socialist who wants a revolution let's face it is a communist he wants the by violent means overthrow the United States government which is the definition of a revolution he wants fundamental change he wants the U. S. government to seize the assets of hospitals oil companies pharmaceuticals and so one would think that a guy like that is not really concerned about money he's a Ben and Jerry kind of a guy but in reality what did you find about how Bernie Sanders monetize socialism for his benefit but not ours you mentioned you know that that that sort of this is is a you know communist leanings I mean it's like the old Brezhnev stays in the Soviet Union you had them talking about world while pollution in the proletariat but they all had five deals in corrupt deals live like kings and Bernice case you know he's worth millions of dollars some of that came from writing books he's actually written more books and he's actually introduced pieces of legislation that if passed but a lot of people don't realize it more than half a million dollars of his own campaign funds have gone to buying his own book but the bigger the bigger issue bill is this this this dirty little secret about washing call media buying and and Bernie Sanders's latched on to this yeah if you were running for the Senate in the state of Ohio and you said Peter I want you to do my media buys by my TV and radio I get a commission of C. off of that it could be anywhere from ten to fifteen percent goes to the media buyer in the beauty of it is that doesn't show up anywhere in Federal Election Commission records you don't know who the media buyers well here's what Bernie did she saw this and what did he do when he started running for Congress left of the Senate he put his wife in charge of the media by which means she's got the commission even though she had no background in advertising and media buying any of this stuff so we know that she and Bernie we received hundreds of thousands of dollars by doing that and the great mystery comes to the twenty sixteen election will Bernice dropped eighty three million dollars on media buys so that means the commission somewhere between eight million and twelve million dollars where did it go well it went through a company called old town media old town media did not have a website did not have other clients it was registered to a home in the coldest sack in suburban Virginia all in the two owners of old town media were long time friends of James Sanders yeah he was after she heard Jane was asked about this by a progressive reporter in twenty sixteen what do you know about old town media do you have any connection to old town media and are you involved in this in any way and according to the professor reporter Jane Sanders just hung up the phone room of what happened to the twelve million dollars who got the media commission on that we just don't know what it's million ends is a little bit of money he monetizes the campaign so those are contribute to thirty six dollars each to the to the Sanders campaign have got to understand that goes into a pot and out of the pot comes all the media buys and that's how the Sanders family gets paid yeah and then the other thing that I think people need to know is that you know Bernie Sanders has been very clear cut in people calling the left kind of you Mister John the Baptist progressive movement why he's out of eating locusts and honey well you know he's worth millions of dollars he actually has an investment portfolio and when you look at his investment portfolio I hate to break this to you bill I know this is going to shock you he's not invested in like renewable energy companies he's not invested in you know some organic farm I mean he's invested in fortune five hundred stock that's where his investment portfolio is it's not a socially responsible investment fund that's where his investments are in when you set up you know we bought his third home the vacation home they set it up in the trust precisely to avoid paying some taxes so you know Bernie Sanders is not John the Baptist use is is more like a qualified king Herod at least in the way that is that he handles his investments in his own money let's move on to Lizabeth Warren she is picturing yourself as a every woman she knows exactly how you live your life she spent time a course in Oklahoma and then and she monetized her so called Indian heritage and I probably have more Indian blood to me than she does she use all along but you have great reporting on how she a really bad millions of dollars from corporations even though she rants and raves against corporate America how to Elizabeth Warren maker money our records network is around twelve million dollars they pay well at Harvard Law School they don't pay that well so the question becomes how did you make that money and so we re traced this we went through and found that in the mid nineteen nineties Elizabeth one was hired by the U. S. Congress and paid by us the taxpayers to help Congress to rewrite some of the bankruptcy laws okay she's a lawyer that makes sense they hire her they tend to do this whole ideas are incorporated into the bankruptcy code then what does she do bill she goes to large corporations Dow chemical and others and says you hire me as a consultant and I will help you navigate around the law I actually wrote genius is very corrupt moves and other people in Washington is done have done this she's denounced other people that have done this but she ended up working for Dow chemical Armstrong world wide a whole host of large corporations who are facing class action lawsuit towards and she was helping them minimize their exposure that's obvious a legitimate thing to do but the fact that she says I've been fighting for the little guy my entire life is simply not true she made millions of dollars helping the big guy large corporations slip out of responsibilities as it related to people who were damaged by the products those companies have produced you don't fall a few nights ago I'm watching Chris Matthews every now and then is a lucid moment and he was ranting and raving about socialism the evil socialism is because all over the world any referenced Ohio senator Sherrod brown that Sherrod brown is the kind of person that we need there because he looks after the little guys a union guy so Sherrod brown is being promoted by the mainstream media as kind of Bernie Sanders light and you've investigated were weren't shared brown gets his money from where is it that's very interesting shirt brown he always been in public life since you graduate from college he ran for the state legislature he listed himself he was still a senior at Yale when he ran for office he listed himself bill as a farmer under our occupation I don't know what kind of form he
Senate Democrats Meet With Reporters Discussing Impeachment Trial
"This morning about eleven Senate Democrats met with reporters I made these remarks everybody how to be joined by my colleagues this morning now as everyone knows for months now we Democrats have relentlessly asked to hear from well with relevant witnesses and review relevant documents in this trial for a very simple reason this is about truth and today the Senate will vote on whether witnesses and documents are allowed in this trial the importance of this vote is self evident trials have witnesses trials have documents the vote today is about whether the Senate will have a fair trial the president of the United States so it's deeply disturbing that on something of such importance to the future of our democracy a few of my Republican colleagues announced last night they vote against hearing additional evidence it's clear with the American people stand on the issue Republican senators who decide to go against the will of the people we'll have to reckon with that the result of today's vote is still an open question but I would note that even in senator Alexander statement announcing his opposition to new evidence he said that it was proven that the president did what he was accused of he came to the wrong conclusion about hearing evidence in this trial that's clear but senator Alexander senior Senate Republican retiring member said out loud but I think most Senate Republicans believe in private that yes resident did withhold military assistance try to get you bring to help him in his election and yes the president did interfere with congressional investigations of that misconduct he said yes the president condition foreign aid and a White House meeting with an ally at war on the performance of the bogus investigations that would help his reelection Alexander rejected ninety percent of the argument from the president's council that the president did nothing wrong he acknowledged that the president did something for the founders feared most the potential corruption of our national elections by a foreign power to listed by none other than our own president and to hide that gross misconduct the White House exhausted every legal trick in the book to prevent Congress from investigating if my Republican colleagues refused to even consider witnesses and documents in this trial this country is headed towards the greatest cover up since Watergate if my Republican colleagues refused to even consider witnesses and documents in the trial what will the president concludes we all know including can do it again and Congress can do nothing about it he can try to cheat in his election again something that eat at the roots of our democracy and one more point point I've been making for week it for weeks what is most relevant today if my Republican colleagues refused to consider witnesses and documents in this trial the president's acquittal will be meaningless because it will be the result of a sham trial if there are no witnesses no documents in this trial there will be a permanent asterisk next to the acquittal of president trump written in permanent ink so Senate Republicans face a choice today between seeking the truth I bring it up between a fair trial and of course between country and part no matter what the results of today's vote I believe the truth will eventually come out my Republican colleagues should think about that before they both today the truth the truth venture we come out we could go to see the truth in this trial or it could come out in a few weeks a few months and on that day every Republican who voted to hide the truth in an impeachment trial the president will have to answer for senator Murray Chuck Schumer thank you know since the news first broke about the president's call to pressure the Ukrainian president to investigate his political rival Democrats have made very clear we need to approach this fairly transparently and in a way that allows all of the facts to come out we didn't want to be in this position position no one does but as the severity of the potential violations became clear we insisted the investigation and trial I pulled American values that we and our constituents hold dear trials should have evidence and witnesses no one is above the law and every public service first loyalty should be to the people of this country not a political party or figure actually what we have seen from our Republican colleagues has straight straight dangerously far from those very basic principles they stuck their heads in the sand when presented with an overwhelming case illustrating the president's skilled these put themselves into knots trying to claim that they needed more time before voting on whether to hear witnesses and evidence and then said hearing your testimony or review viewing your information would just take too long and now tonight all signs point to a rush to cradle of an impeached president not because there wasn't enough evidence there is already and everything including the president's own ETS and statements and eight Mister Jeff that more exists the reason that we are expecting a rush to court our president trump tonight is because Senate Republicans are about to make a terrible choice they're about to dismiss this with a shrug and who cares rather than with the liberation and substance it's so it's certainly warrants they're about to choose a cover up rather than a fair trial and put president trump before the United States of America so this morning we are asking Senate Republicans one final time don't make that terrible choice choose our country choose our national security shoot choose our democratic institutions and choose the rule of law if you still somehow have doubts about the evidence for house presented both for a fair trial with witnesses and evidence if you have no doubts and just want to prove Democrats wrong do the same for the sake of showing the Senate can fulfill its responsibility if for no other reason but do not make this trial a cover up just to avoid hearing the truth you don't think you'll like because everyone in this country we'll hear it sooner or later the full truth will come out and each of us will for ever own our decisions about whether or not we're on the right side of it we've got an opportunity tonight for a fair trial finishers we have as much information as possible before making that decision let's not waste thank you senator Murray senator Sherrod brown thank
Dems say oust Trump or he'll betray again; 'He is who he is'
"In closing remarks vote against the president and your head will be on a pike house impeachment manager Adam Schiff says he doesn't know if it's true that a trump insider gave that warning but he used it to allege that trump was acting like a king there was an angry response on the Senate floor lawmakers shaking their heads no and Oklahoma Republican senator James Lankford saying the comment was insulting all these Republicans live in fear the present that there had will be applied not true but Democrat Sherrod brown of Ohio says colleagues have confided in him they're afraid of retribution if they cross president trump this president might come into their states in campaign against the will call the names are there's a palpable fear Jackie Quinn Washington
Colorado’s Jason Crow will help prosecute Trump in Senate
"As house Democrats work through the weekend to prepare for the Senate trial perhaps the most unexpected impeachment manager is congressman Jason crow he's a former army ranger and attorney who slipped a Republican seat to win in Colorado and he went from not supporting anti blows his bid for house speaker to becoming one of her choices to prosecute the case against president trump joining me now is Colorado congressman Jason crow conocen thank you so much for being here morning good to be on out so just last night and you saw this the trump legal team put out a skating six six page response to your impeachment trial memo calling impeachment quote brazen and unlawful quote highly partisan and reckless and it says the president trump categorically and unequivocally denies each and every allegation and it says that neither article of impeachment even constitutes an impeach an impeachable offense at all what's your response to that well my responses here this fits the president's power you know he he continues to deflect off of his own behavior trying to attack the messenger my immediate responses yeah let's call the witnesses that you know he has said that his call was a perfect call he said that he's done nothing wrong so let's have the people that are in the best position to confirm that come in and testify before the U. S. Senate that's what over seventy percent of the American people are asking for the president deserves a fair trial the American people deserve a fair trial so let's have that fair trial when you found out your impeachment manager was a complete surprise to you I was surprised I I hadn't been a lobbying for this it was called in to speak speak with the leadership and you know I was surprised to be asked that was humbled to be asked to represent my colleagues in the at the house of representatives in the country I during this really important trial and as I just mentioned in twenty nineteen you did not support speaker Pelosi as she sought the speakership I wonder now in retrospect now you are one of these key Democrats in impeachment do you feel differently about the judgment that she's displayed through this process well I've always had a fantastic relationship with speaker Pelosi and she's done a really great job over the past year navigating the house through a very difficult very challenging time you know she's a lead in a very very thoughtful way and I think what the selection of these managers shows is that politics doesn't play a part in the speaker has wanted to put a team together that represents the diversity of this country the diversity of the caucus who can bring the case make the case that regarding National Security abuse of power and and all the things the president did in and make that case in a good way you want witnesses do you want love parn Asti indicted associate of Rudy Giuliani has provided a bunch of documents some of which are incredibly helpful for Democrats but he's maybe someone with a credibility issue to say the least well I'm not going to get into any one particular witness that I can say the managers are meeting and talking regularly I with our team the considering who are the best witnesses to bring that case we have to look at the entire universe of potential witness it is it on the table because senator Sherrod brown just said that he assumes that would be someone Democrats want to hear from you all of the relevant witnesses are on the table you know what we have to do is make sure we have documents to you this can't be the first a trial in American history the first impeachment trial in American history where we don't have documents and witnesses produced by the president could you use documents from love are not without hearing testimony from one part of that is a possibility I mean that we yeah but we have to do is we have to assess all the time both documents and witnesses and in many instances like any trial documents are a great way to assess credibility but if you include documents and not the testimony then people will say it's because you don't think that the witnesses credible well all of this is based on the Senate allowing witnesses you know we can talk about hypotheticals all day long about which witnesses to call when the call on whether or not to have witnesses or documents or documents the crop right those witnesses all of those type of kind of but all of this goes back to the Senate allowing witnesses in this in a long documents that is the Senate's decision because the jurors in this case the senators are both the Trier of fact but they also established the rules so it's time for them to establish fair rules do you think the president trump committed bribery yeah I think that the president did a lot of things that I've used his power of bribery yeah it is difficult yeah it is specifically you know he did attempt to bribe and of course a foreign government official in the why is why isn't that an article you know we have to look look at the entire context of what happened here yeah that's what this is about this is about the abuse of power it's about jeopardizing our national security our troops it's about undermining our free and fair elections you know the broad context of the pattern of this president is what's really important and that's why we proceeded with impeachment you could have had bribery is an article and then abuse of power is an article for instance Alan Dershowitz is going to argue on the Senate floor as he basically just stated that I mean you bribery is in the constitution when it comes to impeachment he will argue or will certainly feel that you Democrats would have had a much better case to actually see bribery if he thought it was bribery you all said bribery there's been talking points where Democrats are saying this is bribery and yet it wasn't an article of impeachment was that a mistake considering what Alan Dershowitz is going to argue no absolutely not you know let's let's broaden back out here and talk about what's really going on here that the president's team is trying to say you know that the president can't be indicted because it's DOJ policy that is standing president are sitting president can't be indicted at the same time there also making arguments that the house of representatives in Congress cannot subpoena documents to witnesses and we can't bring an impeachment case that you know it has to be a crime it that high crimes and misdemeanors do not do not include abuse of power and abuse of the public trust so if all of the president's arguments are true that a president can't be indicted that is the abuse of power and abuse of public trust doesn't constitute impeachable offense if that is true then no president can be held accountable that the president truly is above the law so those arguments can't possibly be true they can't stand because in our entire system of checks and balances wouldn't hold congressman decent growth thank you so much for joining us this right have a good

"sherrod" Discussed on KCRW
"Bill is Democrat Sherrod brown of Ohio more than twenty five years in Congress he's never supported a trade agreement until this one so when we spoke with him earlier today we asked why now well every trade agreement in my time in the house and Senate have been written by corporate interests workers are are never really at the table there are a few things and these agreements for workers the trump renegotiation of nafta that he presented to Congress was more of the same was a corporate special interests the whole it was good for the drug companies that had nothing for workers and working with speaker Pelosi and senator Wyden and the labor movement we made it very clear we will not support another corporate trade agreement unless it has strong provisions for workers let's talk about that you mention Ron Wyden the other senator who is and Democrat whose endorses as well I see big changes for workers in Mexico it makes it easier for them to unionize the and it requires higher wages there stipulates a Mexican trucks can cross the US border need higher safety regulations how is all of this was to help the American worker well I don't see merit in worker because it means that if standards go up in Mexico with workers are paid more they're more likely to buy American products made in the United States companies are less likely to shut down production in in Mansfield Ohio or to lead over Lima and move to Mexico Mexican workers are treated better can union eyes are paid better wages I am if you do that that's when trade works we do Democrats progressive want to vote for trade agreements but only for those trade agreements work to build a little class in the United States into Mexico and this is taking a step towards that unfortunately the trump agenda on taxes is still such that if you shut down production you have a company in Ohio you're paying a twenty one percent corporate tax rate you move to Mexico you pay half that so we'll trade deal make a dent if there's still this financial incentive in tax policy to leave well this trade deal will help but as long as the president is in lockstep with corporate interest it makes it much harder we will not solve every problem by a long shot but it's a significant step that's why I'm supporting one obstacle Mexico seems to be pushing back on the requirements for oversight that would kind of deploy US monitors to review whether or not they're holding up those labor standards how willing do you think the Mexican government is to support that in their labor force first of all the new Mexican president ran on a labor agenda he's the most pro labor president that they've had in my adult lifetime on so that's a good step but if they don't enforce if they don't allow enforcement these provisions than their culture denied at the border they don't get the nafta benefits so I'm it's in their interest to do this they made some noise during the negotiations and while the trump administration continue to fight against our brown whitened provisions for workers they impart blamed it on the Mexican government but they were the ones that were blocking us in stopping is that's why I took a year and a half to convince them that if they wanted a real renegotiated after they have to put provisions for American workers in the bill and the president kicking and screaming was brought in to that because you have to pay I want to go back to some of the original arguments for nafta back in nineteen ninety four right it was supposed to be a free trade agreement now all these years later you essentially have an update that some argue builds up rather than breaks down trade barriers are we looking at higher prices especially in areas like the auto sector it is a something American just have to get used to what is your thinking on this first that these four never free trade agreements they're always provisions they're written as a collection of special interest provisions to help various industries and in special interests in the United States when workers make more money American workers are working in in Mexican workers are working boats all rights and that's what that's higher prices are okay if everyone's making more well I I've not jump not gonna let you see him higher price here okay if you do that but I think you're gonna see workers making more money Mexican workers will be able to buy American products and that's the whole point of these trade agreements Ohio is faces severe decline in manufacturing jobs according to Georgetown researchers a portion of the manufacturing jobs in the state shrank by more than half between nineteen seventy in twenty sixteen so this is all a long time process how confident are you that companies would move back to a place like Lordstown were in Ohio or elsewhere as GM continued to shut down production in Ohio in open production to Mexico and the president on mentally did nothing except say don't sell your homes jobs are coming back I I am not going to promise that with this agreement I think what this agreement does is it makes companies less likely to move so we're not going to see huge numbers come back already but we are going to start to begin to stop the flow of jobs going out and that's that's to me the whole point of this agreement to fight for workers in to make sure job stay in the United States competitively senator Sherrod brown thank you so much for your time let's do it thank you in France today strikes and protests across the country brought hundreds of thousands of people to the streets protesters want the government to cancel its plan to reform the nation's retirement system NPR's Eleanor Beardsley has the latest unions say three hundred and fifty thousand people protested in Paris today and they

White House insists Trump was warmly welcomed at Dayton hospital
"One of the people the president spoke with is the mayor of Dayton and Whaley who joins us now thank you for taking the time today thank you very before the president arrived in Dayton you said that you were planning to tell him that his comments around gun violence in mental health issues were on helpful did you give him that message yes I did I really talked about what he could do and you know that the people of Dayton we're hoping for some action and you know I said to him that you know I thought he was a person of action so he could make some action on gun legislation have you respond so that was he said he would do something I didn't get the sense that he was like at a plan of like yes I'm for red flag laws yes I'm for assault weapons are yes I'm for straw purchases six cetera but you know well let's hope he's not one of these all talk no action politicians that sort of thing ahead of his visit you were skeptical that he would be able to bring anything positive to be Frank I'm now that he has come and gone what's your sense of what his visit it it did what the impact was I think the victims that that were in the hospital were super grateful for his visit and our first refer sponsors into the present the United States that if they were happy to see him but it was tough in this in the city you know we had some skirmishes in the Oregon district of pro champ anti trump I mean really the minute he announced that he was coming we saw the rhetoric in the community just get really heightened and before that there was really a sense of people coming together do you blame him for that I think that's something for the past three years that you know the hyper prior partisan nature the into Donald Trump is just makes that happen and it's you know as as an elected official who likes to think of ways that we can build together we're seeing that in Ohio you know we saw governor to wind take action yesterday we saw congressman Turner call for an end to assault weapons so we're seeing that in the state so when he comes in it and it stretches it out to make a hyper partisan yes I think some of his his tweets and some of his zero sum game politics isn't isn't help for democracy well speaking of partisanship on Twitter White House a dance casino accused you of mis characterizing the visit he called you and senator Sherrod brown disgraceful politicians doing nothing the politicizing mass shooting or white house press secretary Stephanie Grisham on Twitter accused you holding a dishonest press conference in the name of partisan politics do you wanna respond yeah I mean I I don't really understand what they're talking about and this is the same kind of you know hyper partisanship that comes comes away we we said in the in the press conference that the victims were grateful to see him and we we mentioned Pat and it but you know we were very serious about wanting to have some real movement on gun legislation and you know senator brown called on him to have bring Mitch McConnell back you know we had a healthy conversation about the outside weapons ban and Hey maybe he could get this done and we were very you know honest about that and you know for him to be upset that we had a press conference while he did no press in Dayton I think that's really what this is about you know I I have I mean I want him to take action and you know I've been very clear about that I was clear to him and clear to the press today you and the people of Dayton have been at the center of intense tragedy and scrutiny for the last few days now where do things go from here what happens to your city now well I think we want to get a get on with the business of grieving and bringing our community gather certainly we are heartened by governor to wind action around some common sense gun legislation in the state house will advocate have you for that we still hope that president trump will you know take action on some common sense gun legislation will continue to push for that but in the community it's about the grieving process and bringing our community gather and that's my job as mayor that will continue to keep on doing N.

"sherrod" Discussed on Reliable Sources with Brian Stelter
"And this weekly podcast is our chance to talk in depth with media leaders and newsmakers. But how the media really works and what we can do better. So let's start the year and get into it with our first guest Connie Schultz. She's a Pulitzer prize winning columnist and journalism professor at Kent state who also happens to be married to Senator Sherrod Brown counting. How does that work? I think you're the only person in journalism with this unique situation. Well, how does what work which part? Do you want to know about being a journalist but being married to a Senator? Well, it helps that I'm a newspaper columnist, right? I've been a I was a calmness. What I meant shared. I just started writing my column sixteen years ago this month that we bet. And so I'm paid to give my opinion, which is helpful. I have to be as transparent as I possibly can. Which is good practice for any journalist. Frankly, I will say there's a little bit of a difference. I know plenty of journalists tickly in Washington who are married to people who could be perceived as a potential conflict, but most people don't know who they're married to. So the transparency issue doesn't seem to work the same way. Sometimes. And I don't mean that as a criticism. I just it makes it perhaps unique in my instance, it most people know who my husband is right. You know? But you are I do have to be careful if he is shepherding abilities, the one pushing something through have to be careful not to be writing about something that he's championing on the other hand, I'm not going to be the least but defense about writing about. Issues. I've always cared about women's rights, for example, abortion rights worker's rights. LGBTQ community writes a lot of that stuff. I been writing about long before I was a columnist covering it in different ways. So you know, it really helps to know who you are into be pretty certain on who you are. So that you don't let other people chip away at your identity when it comes to doing what I do. But many of your passions overlap with his which of course, makes a lot of sense. It also makes for a good marriage. Yeah. Yeah. And tell me about what it's like to be a columnist who's the swearing who was there for for all the festivities of the start of a new year new session. Well, because I'm so mindful of what it means to be a journalist right now in this country as journalists as a friend of so many journalists as a person who's teaching the next generation helping to teach the next generation of journalists it weighs heavily on me. What the message has been from this. Why? House and particularly from this president, and I don't see any point in. It I like knowing that or pussyfooting around it. He's been calling us. The enemy of the people is becoming increasingly dangerous to be journalists in the world. And unfortunately, it has the potential become increasingly dangerous to be a journalist in America. And we saw as, you know, a number of deaths of journalists in this country violent us in the last year. So I come at this always as journalists. I how can I not this is how I made my living for more than three decades. And yes, I'm married to a member of the Senate. But when people ask me what it's like to be married to a Senator, I always respond. I know what it's like to be married to share it right here. Every Senator is different. And every spouse of the Senator is different. I understand that..
