Professor Les Standiford Tells Us About 'The Man Who Invented Christmas'
"And there is a new book out. The man who invented Christmas how Charles Dickens, a Christmas Carol, which everybody knows. Rescued his career and revived our holiday spirits. Mister Stanford is a professor in the creative writing program at Florida international university in Miami. Do I have it all correct? That's right. I'm the director of that program. I'm even more honored, sir. Thank you. Thank you for joining us. This is a fascinating story in and of itself. About how Charles Dickens is largely responsible for the way we celebrate Christmas in the west. Is that fair to say? I think it is. All thanks to a work of fiction. A little careless, he called it. Yeah. It's very rare that a one work has such an impact as a Christmas Carol has a hat on western society. Tell us here is what's so interesting. I guess a lot of people know this, but I also suspect a lot don't. What was Christmas in England and America prior to Dickens? Well, you might think that Dickens climbed on the Christmas bandwagon as a way of revitalizing his career, but the truth is, as you come to find out, Dickens built the wagon. There wasn't any Christmas to speak of at the time. He had been on the church calendar since the fourth century AD when it was created. And but it had fallen into disrepute from the middle of the 17th century when the Puritans took hold of parliament and declared the celebration
'You Will Be Assimilated' Author David Goldman on China's Contempt for the U.S.
"China is not an enemy. And I think that's important for people to clearly understand. China is a rising power, China has been a rising power since Deng Xiaoping in 79. And they are going to develop themselves in our developing themselves into a great power. That is not to say, however, that they are an enemy. They're not an enemy. They're just a great power. That's according to the chairman of the joint chiefs when he was speaking in his private capacity as chief of staff of the army. The NATO summit, maybe that explains a lot about Mark Billy. We'll discuss the realities of what China thinks they are to us and how they're eating our lunch with the man that we always rely upon to tell us about the geo strategic reality in Asia and in Beijing. He's the author of a fabulous work you must check out right now. It's you will be assimilated. China's plan to Sino form the world. David Goldman. Welcome to one on one. A sub gorka it is an honor and privilege to spend fine with you, sir. Thanks for the invitation. I just realized I'm looking at the cover of your book that the Chinese dragon has a pair of iPhone ear pods in. That's a very nice little touch there. I missed in the past. David, we'll talk about Millie. We'll talk about the truth of China Beijing. Xi Jinping and everything else. But first, I have to ask you. The imagery of these super cargo ships off the port of LA, the president of the United States saying, oh, no, don't worry about it. And then Jen Psaki saying, oh, that's a high class issue. People having the Christmas present. So that's, you know, the pipes don't worry about that. Let me ask you, let's think like the Chinese Communist Party for a moment. What does China think of the fact that America can't unload its cargo ships? The Chinese have contempt for us. They think they can take us. We just published an a four times an excerpt from a book by Chinese economist used to be the chief economist of the World Bank Chicago university PhD. Who says, look at history. Look at the United States versus England at the end of the 19th century. The English were lazy complacent and the United States come from behind, took them out and ate their lunch. That's exactly what we're going to do to the United States now. We've got the people. We've got the supply chains. We've got the technology. We've got the will to do it. America's lazy and feckless and their right for the

He's afraid of their wrath. He's afraid of their anger. He's afraid of their their rage and he's he's trying to accommodate them.

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich Explains Supreme Court 6-3 Decision on State Voting Laws
"There was a big decision in the United States Supreme Court today. 6 to 3. Upholding Arizona's election law. And it's receiving passing attention, but it's actually quite a significant victory. I think a lot of the other state legislatures that care about the integrity of their vote. Looking on this with a big smile and we have the attorney general of Arizona is responsible for bringing it in defending that state's election law. Mark Berna vich. It's nice to meet you, sir. Thank you, Mark. Thank you very much for having me on really an honor and a pleasure. Likewise. So tell us what happened here and then what the court decided. Uh, Reader's Digest version is in 2016. The Arizona Legislature had passed guidelines regarding who can collect and deliver ballots, and additionally, Arizona had along this book from the 19 seventies that basically limited the ability of folks to vote out of precinct so The left as they've been doing shortly before elections. Usually, they'll come in and we'll start challenging laws trying to create chaos and trying to stack the deck to their advantage when it comes to election integrity, So I stepped in. I defended our state laws we actually won After attendee trial at the District Court, Of course, the ninth Circuit ninth Circus overturned. That is the over, said the statutes were essentially racist because they couldn't find another reasons. It's write them down, and so I appealed it, and I personally argued the case the U. S Supreme Court. As you just said, Mark, we won 6 to 3.
Entrepreneur, Podcaster Jannese Torres-Rodriguez on Why She Left the Corporate 9-5
"Talked a little bit before. And i believe you told me that you were working as an engineer at this time. Was that like because that is a field that i mean. I'm all for more women in stem and and you know and that must have been from all the research i've done as a personal finance reporter whenever you did a list of top earning majors in college. It was always like computer engineering things like that. So you must have had a well paying job in a field that super competitive and you must be extraordinarily smart but you said that you hated your job right so can you talk about. What was it about your career that you weren't finding fulfilling and then how did you and when did you sort of pivot into what you're doing. Now yeah yes. So as an engineer in a latina. Like i think that the career experience has definitely served me. Well in the sense that like i'm so used to being manned s- planed that now when it happens in like the personal finance fear which yes. It absolutely does kind of doesn't bother me. I'm just like midge like what you like. We are the same. So i'm not even here to like i. I don't need your explanation. Sir thank you. And because that came so much from like mike corporate experience i was usually the youngest woman in the room i was usually the only woman of color and there was a lot of like that. Just you know that girl. That girl gets like the products and nobody else wants to work on. And just gets talked down to gets told that i'm aggressive when the men are quote unquote being assertive blah blah blah. So i think from that perspective. I'm grateful for the fact that it gave me a thick skin because right i don't take any shit from anybody at this point. I think my career has a lot to do with that. But i think i followed my father's footsteps when it comes to an engineering background. Because he is an engineer as well he works on like automating production lines for manufacturing companies. And so i always like surrounded by technology and curiosity and science like that was always the vibe that was in my house i was always wanting to find out what my dad was working on. So i think you know. I saw him being financially successful. And i wanted to mimic that but then i also realized that after a while. I just don't care about this. This is not what lights me up. Yes i was making great money like i was twenty five years old making like seventy five thousand dollars. I started making six figures before. I turn thirty. And you know the monetary aspect of it is what kept me in the field for so long. Because i had all these thoughts about like. What the hell awesome. I going to do this actually going to be able to pay me this type of money but at some point i just realized like i can't go through life. Just living with the excitement of paycheck. 'cause it's not it's not worth it to
Bryan Paris: Perennial Poker Kaiju
"Mr barris. Welcome back onto chasing poker greatness. How you been sir. Thank you for having me appreciate you invited to my pleasure man. It's my pleasure. So what have you been up to. Since the last time we spoke. It's probably been about a year so about a year. I have my best year. Ever in the interim so that's been good with the lockdowns and everything poker has been popping off so i had had my biggest or ever last may and then since then i have like four. Scores were biggest bigger than my biggest prior to that. So it's been a very nice little late career renaissance for me linked career. What's this late career business. Also we'll say mid career. I guess it's funny. How like. I never really imagined myself doing something for like seventeen years and when i think that like in three years i'll be have been a professional poker player for twenty years. It kind of blows my mind. Yeah it's so much so much time. So much time passes so quickly against changed much in those years to the level play and just the entire ecosystem is completely changed like multiple phones. Yeah well poker. Nothing after black. Friday everything kind of went just haywire. And it's just been. It's been a mess ever ever since. Then what do you think is led to these record-setting scores over the past year. I think the colonel watkins huge part of The back of their so many more people signed playing online. I think i think that's like led to a large infusion of new blood into the game. Obviously that's kind of winding down now. But the the after affects still real. You know once you get people. Use the idea like depositing money in playing online over there. They're likely to stick around for at least some degree leading the player polls have been a lot larger do that. I think that's the primary reason. But then also there's sort of a momentum thing where it's just when you're winning and the money's rolling in you can it's a lot easier to sort of detach yourself from like the immediacy of it all and just kind of make decisions. Zoe were studying. And just as the to make awfully as possible. And you know like no matter how much you tell yourself that you're capable of detaching from like the underlying money there's always it's like nagging voice in the back of your head like oh i can bluff year. But that's like if i'm wrong at a cost me x. Amount of money. It's easier to that when you're doing really well. It's an interesting psychological effect that you know if you're just ripping off big win after big win after big win you're much more comfortable in your mind quote unquote taking chances whereas if you're just getting crushed doing those same things you're a lot more hesitant to pull the trigger. You can know mentally too. Something is the right move. And then it's like you know it's gonna cost you more money to do it but it's still. It's still hard to pull the trigger unless you have a whole lot behind to worry about the results in the short term like what's the expression not only have to know what the right move is you have to make it

Can schools safely reopen? Doctors weigh in
"At the CDC said yesterday that schools can safely reopen for in person classes as long as they follow safety protocols like mask wearing and social distancing. It'll come as a relief to many parents and potentially a source of anxiety for quite a few teachers. Let's go to a school now. The University of Kentucky we're in person. Classes resumed this week, University President Eli Kappa Ludo is here. Mr Coppola to welcome good to speak with you. Good afternoon. Glad to be with you as well. And congratulations. I know you just started your spring semester on Monday. Maybe there was a time when you didn't think that would happen as planned. How are you going to keep everybody safe? Well, we've learned a lot from our fall semester. We're prepared to retest to surveillance testing, waste water testing. We have all kinds of Ways to keep tabs on our numbers on campus. Those who are positive move into isolation, be able to trace get those folks into quarantine and we built a modern public health infrastructure to do that. Well, as you say, you've had some time to study this because of last semester when you and pretty much every other college campus in the country did have cases of covert. Were you able to learn whether or not people were getting sick from spending time inside the classroom? Through our extensive testing on tracing We saw no evidence of classrooms spread. I think we may have traced some 6000 plus students, not in any of those cases that we see evidence of classroom spread. And so where is it spreading? I know some of your no. One of your fraternities was suspended last summer for breaking covert rules. Is that where people were getting infected? I think some of the harsh lesson lessons we've seen outside of college campuses hold for campuses, and that is When we let our guard down, gather and smaller, large groups, for whatever reason is when you see your outbreaks on Yes. Have there been situations where we had to intervene. We're organized groups wanted to hold things. Yes, way had to put a lid on that. We'll look these air college kids, and I'm not trying to let them off the hook by any means, But they're young adults. Sometimes they make bad decisions. How do you make sure they get your message? You know, are you planning on Enforcing these rules is strictly as possible. We did. We started with a positive assumption, though. And with a strong, healthy behavior intervention, what we called our daily four point of That is our screening testing, tracing all those kinds of things we reinforce. And, uh, yes. They're isolated incidents where people didn't behave as we wanted. It is. I look at my office window today. I'm gratified. I walked this campus. I live on this game. I'm very pleased with the way our students have responded. I think they've been good. Good citizens and something else that has really fascinated me. We've had over 3000 cases. 25% of those have been self reported. And I think it's our connectedness on that. They see us as a resource. And when we come out of cove in and decide who we are and what we want to be, and one of the things we can leverage I think this positive influence on health and health behaviors is one we can capitalize on many schools from elementary schools to high schools to college campuses are worried about students mental health over the past few months over the past year, really, including suicide, Unfortunately, What are you noticing on your campus? Uh, this worries may deeply are students who we have asked physically distant have done so, but it has its consequences. Be able to walk down the hall in your residents facility and get that informal counseling plus the physical counseling we have available on campus. That social infrastructure is vitally important. We tried to replace your students are hurting because they don't have it. Yes. Most certainly, but the resilience I've seen has been a gratifying well, we all hope that vaccinating people can help put an end to all of this right. So you're getting shots into arms on your campus? Who's getting a shot? Who's not? We follow the state guidelines. I think we're one of the most efficient in the state right now is one of the regional vaccination centers. We morphed our football stadium into a site. You register online? All of our health colleges are involved where? Vaccinating over 2000 people a day in the community of Let's just on campus. Well, this is the community of Lexington. Starting first are our public and private school employees in hopes of getting our schools to reopen way have vaccinated thousands of public and private school teachers just in the last week and first responders and then people of the age of 70. So to that point, um, you know what's your best prediction? For the fall of 2021, because I'm glad your classes have started in person this week. That's great news. But what's your best prediction for next semester? In the fall? What will that look like? How close to normal? Could it be? I think if we have adequate vaccine supply and are able to complete that, by late spring, we will reopen, but I think we're still gonna have to be cautious and careful. But as someone who I talked to today said, I know that when I received my vaccine yesterday, I wasn't immediately protected. But the hope that seem to arise within May was immeasurable. Alike. Absoluto, president of the University of Kentucky there in Lexington. Thank you, sir. Thank you for your time. Thank you. Stay say.
Republican Congressman vs. David C. Smalley
"Let's jump straight in. Because i want to bring our guest in on the conversation immediately. He's a former congressman from virginia's fifth district he's now nc are is chief strategist and author of bigfoot. It's complicated which. I really hope we have time to get into and i really hope. He's still a republican. Let's find out join me in welcoming denver riggleman to the show. Thanks for joining me today. Sir thanks for having me sir. Oh well you heard that with us for the first time it just came out moments ago. What are your thoughts. So i'd like to state as we start here. The president trump reid tweeted a few months ago that the joe biden. Kill seal team six. I think god you're right. No you know. That's and that's what i was when i was listening to that speech after what i heard Down near the white house right before the siege on the capital. In fact that i've been in. Congress have been in the house. And i knew some of those people that spoke like madison call or mo brooks of talked to many times Don jr. meant obviously rudy giuliani I've met obviously and and what i really saw. Their david was absolute Language to incite really. It happened over the months and months and to hear that right now. My my first reaction is not really a politician but as an intelligence officer and something counter-terrorism like somebody's very afraid of the senate trial for impeachment. I thought the same thing Michael came in a few seconds in michael goes. Looks like a hostage video like he looks like he like. It's not really his words. He just feels the need to say these things he had to. I mean you know. The thing is is that his his term does end. I know that there are some people that are still listening to pastures and trucks talking about biblical prophecy that president trump is right now hidden a bunker and mike. Flynn is going to be the next vice president but by the way that's true. I just saw this video two days ago. One hundred eighty five thousand likes david on a facebook video from some dude in a truck saying that you know he's a pastor and had biblical prophecy and he just went through the whole cunanan thing and i just shaking my head about the ridiculousness out there. But he still wants to keep his brand to. He's got to make money. And how's he going to do that. And i think there's a lot of things you need to worry about. And that speech was the copa. That was so too late and show not anything that he said before that very hard to believe men. You're spot on. I mean. I i you know about damn time is the first reaction and then does he even believe the stuff he's saying is the second reaction So late you know so late to the party So that so that my listeners have a little bit background as to why this conversation between the two of us is so important You know you're you're only a former congressman because apparently you weren't conservative enough for your district right you. You lost to someone who was far more conservative and on top of that. I've seen you. I've seen pictures. Anyway of you officiating. Same sex wedding so you don't sound very republican the to us sir. What's going what's going on over there. Why are you so open minded and logical. You know when iran. You know. i've only been. I don't know people know this about me. I was i was a ceo. sell my company in two thousand twelve doing counterterrorism and counterintelligence work. Could you know not. Only that i can. I can go back in time. If i told you the crazy stuff. I've done like we mission plan. The first bombing runs death in afghanistan for nine eleven. that was our squadron. It was me Oman training omanis on. F16 sixteen operations in two thousand and ninety nine. I was on. The romanian serbian border for operation. Allied for trying to stop ethnic cleansing. I've had a hell of a life and that's just the beginning counter idea. Actually our team that was tracking sulejmani and two thousand six two thousand seven so when people saw my resume like this son of a gun never been in politics before when i ran as a republican i was asked to because the my predecessor had to resign because of alcoholism. Which is a little ironic. Since i'm going to stiller. I one on accident one by one. Vote against a christian.

What's going on question if you drove by what's up, Jimmy for the past six months or you hear from him is if you follow the signs following signs follows science Now, Mr Biden wants to give the second doses of the vaccine that had to do to to dose vaccine the other people and not follow the science. What are you talking about? Jimmy? There is there is saying that there was saying that by Satou does What are you talking about? Second doses of the fire The vaccine T to other people other than the ones that got completely mischaracterizing What Joe? Biden said Jimmy, what are you talking about? He didn't say that. They heard on what news? What channel? Did you hear that always enter Newsmax. No. Did you hear it directly? This is what it is. What I do You trust the media. Jimmy. I could be wrong with this. Okay. Jimmy? Jimmy, you're you are wrong. I'm correcting you. Okay? How long is That Joe Biden been saying that he's gonna be the part the president for all the people, and now he's saying he's not going to give any white people loans. Again. You're completely mischaracterizing Joe Biden and then his policies and what he said. He actually said that last night, Brian, he actually said that he's going to. He's going to focus on small businesses owned by minorities. Jimmy Jimmy, Can I answer to this question because he assumed can answer. Jimmy's question. Is Joe Biden? Because you're buying a wealthy rich white man assumes that every single business owned by a white male is okay, So let me explain. They have their own accounts. Explain to Jimmy. Jane basically said F white people less okay. That is That's what that is Another story. That's what pretty basic no, he don't know. He didn't Okay, Jamie. Okay, So I'm gonna wait till JD OK, So let me respond. Now. What JD said, is completely factually inaccurate, like just about everything else, he said in 2.5 hours. Joe Biden Absolutely did not say f white people. Joe Biden did not say he was gonna help white small businesses. What Joe Biden did say which JD misrepresents. At any time, he opportunity he gets a chance to to discredit anybody. That is on the left. What actual Joe? Biden did say, and I heard what he said. I'm not sure if J d did, Or maybe he got okay. Jimmy, Jimmy, Jimmy. Jimmy. I'm responding. What Joe Biden said was he was certainly going to go out of his way to help minorities that own small businesses. And you know what, Sir? I don't have a problem with that. I don't have a problem with neither. Okay. J D does, though, James Jimmy? Absolutely no problem with that. Brian, the issue here. Is that 90% of small businesses are owned by by white people Summer maybe he wants more black people don't some business. This is not a bad thing. My my family's business is down 40% because of Corona virus because of covert 19 nothing to do with black people. White people's business. Need help, too, because of what's going on. Are you just You just said it yourself insane. Are you talking actually crazy? What are you talking about? No, I'm here every day. Unlike you. You have not crazy. You don't have a problem with Joe Biden saying, Let me response. Is that a question? The answer. Can I ask you to let me ask you first? I know what you're doing. I know what your father isn't. Well, let me ask my question. I can't wait. Don't accuse me of interrupting. We've done it. The entire ship's my question. But you actually no problem with Joe Biden deciding and binds administration decided who gets relief from covert 19 or help based on race. Okay, so it's your question. You just asked me the question and you don't let me answer it. Okay. It's very Is that fair? Okay, Thank you. Um, First of all, what Joe Biden is saying, and you just said it yourself. 90% of small businesses are owned by white people..

"All those things to celebrate Christmas in our family. There is, of course, the rush Christmas show coming up in the music and I've always appreciated that Russia is going to take that tone with the show. You could leave the Ma ha A note at rush Limbaugh dot com. A Merry Christmas note to rush, he said. From time to time. He's gonna need a rest. He took one And that's his program is America's Anchorman's Talk to John in Marietta, Georgia. John, You're on the Russian, but program taught Hermann filming in. Hi, John. I thought, How are you? Merry Christmas. God bless you. Thank you, sir. Thank you, sir. And thanks for being an out there. Christian Jesus is the reason for the season. The reason I called was to tell you that It seems to me that Pelosi and Schumer and even Biden and Harris Auto be screaming for an investigation of this whole thing so they can prove that they are legitimate. And they are silent. It's um there's a silent is the Republicans are which is confusing to me. Oh, is that so? You would see Nancy Pelosi coming out and saying We're going to prove this so that I think you know, I know that her people at media matters when they camp out in the basement for the 15 cents an hour. They're always looking for what we say here. So maybe this maybe that could get to Nancy. That's why don't you appoint an independent prosecutor to look into this outside of government? Why don't we employ cyber experts outside of government to look into this? Just so you can prove your man and woman were in fact, elected legitimately is that that's the outcome you're looking for. Exactly right. I would wonder I would think they would be screaming for an investigation to prove the legitimacy and not doing that. No, no. And it's worse than that. I mean, look, when you have like this, this audit of this this machine this vote interpreting machine in Michigan. It plays to so many patterns we've seen I've been asking for a long time. Why are we seeing 80% of ballots adjudicated what That means is instead of being counted for Trump. Or Biden. They're put into a separate pool of adjudication. And apparently what happened? According to this audit of this machine, this Dominion machine in Michigan, They dumped a whole bunch of balance into an adjudication pile. And then they went through and a 60% quote. Error rates tabulated that in the way that boats were taken from Trump and given to Biden. And I've seen people around the country who are just there. They work it vote county commissions and electoral commissions. And they're just saying on social media, and they're just quote. Nobody's all they are. Moms, dads, business owners, people who volunteer their time on Election Commission saying Wait a minute. Wait. Sorry 80% went in the adjudication pile. Way adjudicate, maybe 5% because there's a problem. We like. You can't see what the voter intent was. We have to study that 80%. It's not just in Michigan. There is motive. There is opportunity. There is availability of assets, and then there's the attempt to say, Don't look over there. That's the stuff that stinks to me. And maybe I don't know, John. Let me ask you this. Do you think Mitch McConnell should be that Senator? That Republican senator to demand that we have a hearing on these ballots. Should he be that one senator to stand up on January 6 and say, Just a bullet. American people need to see a full accounting of this. Do you call on Mitch McConnell to do that, John? Sure. Yeah, alright. That's exactly right. That's what I think He's got. China to his wife is connected with them, so that's not gonna happen. Please don't come to me with corruption in D. C. I mean, listen, I have virgin ears. Now I feel harmed. In fact, I'm calling HR right. Thanks for the call. John Appreciate it very much. Jeff in Gainesville, Georgia. Jeff, you're on the Russian by program is Todd Herman filling in It's Georgia Day, Jeff, welcome. Good afternoon. Todd Herman. Yes, Mitch McConnell may not be in charge on January 6 that we lose. He's run offs in Georgia. And the only reason why we're having these run offs in Georgia is they couldn't do the recounts or the audits correctly. They couldn't do the mathematics. We know there were 66,000 underage voters registered in Georgia. 33,000 of them came back with boats. No, those were subtracted. We haven't had any subtraction going on in the so called recounts or on its What's up with that? Well, they just keep recounting the same ballots and it's It's just like this. It's I'm not you. You You understand this very crisply. I want other people to understand it. This is very much like you have the police. Come to your house and say people broke in through the front door went into our room. Open that safe and took her money. And then the police say, Okay, Well, we'll check the basement. No, No, it's right here. Well, so we looked around the basement. We don't see any signs of entry. No, I said the front door upstairs. Right here. It's this one. Well, they're our hands are tied. We've checked the basement door. This and we've and we've checked it five times. That's what's going on. So let me ask you this. I hope you agree that even with the problems in the challenges I am begging listen from from from Washington States and the West Coast Night. Hope we're begging you. Please vote. Please elect these even if they're soft, soft, dewy Republicans. Are you with me on that Jeff in Georgia in the in the runoff. Well, I wish we would have Ah, real audits. So there is no one there right using missing this point that the runoff should be canceled. If we just do the proper on its Listen, I stand with you 100%. If there's a pressure point, maybe this Jeff, let me try this. Issue Now, maybe this isn't my progress, a zoo, a rank amateur guest cells, But I issue this this standing invitation right now to the secretary of state of Georgia. Um Call the call The show, sir. And I'm sure there's a special line. I'm sure your PR people could get through to Russia's people. And let's have a hearing. Let's have that on the air. Maybe that happened, Jeff.

John Gorman Discusses the Use of Opportunity Zones to Address Social Determinants
"To the healthcare policy podcast on the host. David. Intra Cosso. During this podcast saw discussed efforts to address social determinants of health with John Gorman chairman of the nightingale partners and founder and former Executive Chairman of Gorman Health Group. John Welcome to the program. Thanks David. Great to be here. especially with another native DC guy here most welcome John's by is, of course, posted on the podcast website. Briefly on background, the ongoing covid nineteen pandemic has exposed. The country's failed to adequately address the social determinants of health. Generally defining health access and quality education, economic circumstances, food security, social conditions, and environmental factors. It is estimated that where people live work and socialize determines as much as sixty percent of their health status. Whereas formal medical care accounts for just ten percent. For example concerning. Circumstances forty years of wage stagnation among lower income earners has left forty five percent of working age Americans. With either no health care insurance for insurance without a pocket expenses so high. They avoid sinking care went for example, they developed covid nineteen related symptoms. Healthcare policy makers have slowly begun to take an interest in addressing sto ages as a way to improve health delivery by increasing increasing appropriate utilization and reducing costs. For example, Medicare, advantage plans which enroll more than one third of all Medicare beneficiaries have recently been given regulatory authority to offer Ma benificiary supplemental benefits beyond medical care such as mail deliveries, home modifications, and Personal Care Services. With beginning, discuss, addressing, social determine, specifically use of what are termed opportunities zones. Again. John Gorman. So Jon with that as background. Louis. Begin by asking if you could provide a brief overview of nightingale. Sure David Nangle partners is one of these weird opportunities zone funds that came out of trump's big tax giveaway bill It was actually Cory Booker's program that was designed to encourage investment in real estate and disadvantaged communities and I was sitting on my ass retired last spring and got a notification that the irs had just completely revamped the rags to allow opportunities own capital to be used not just for real estate investment. But also for leases one portly for working capital or for meeting the business requirements of a new company inside one of the nine thousand roughly nine thousand opportunities zones around the country and those opportunities owns David are all. Severely, economically disadvantaged and more importantly medically underserved, and because the irs allowed now opportunities own capital to be used for working capital for meeting business requirements. That's what opened the door to allow us to use opportunities on Capitol to make large scale investments in social determinants of health intervention. So nightingale partners with insurers with health systems with large medical groups to finance design launch, and where necessary execute on our goals to improve. The quality of care for vulnerable populations. In this country, a lot of people like to say and I love it that we packed a Republican billionaire tax shelter in order to improve care for black drought people on that gets me up every morning. Sir Thank you. So this as you noted, this was a provision in the December seventeen tax bill. Specifically page one, hundred, and thirty. This was picked up this previous legislation as you noted, that as you mentioned senator from New Jersey Cory Booker but also the South Carolina African American Republican, the only one Tim Scott. So this is picked up in the tax bill previous legislation and you mentioned the nine thousand. So these are census tracts that meet this low income community criteria wrote and then explain to me. Governors than have to select a discrete number. That could benefit from this. Tax Advantage program is that correct doubts correct and there was a little bit of mischief but some of the governors in the designation of some of those areas and there's been, you know some gamesmanship with this story like you know Chris Christie, the former governor of New Jersey is. Used an opportunity zone fund open up frigging LAUNDROMAT. In Asbury, Park with Bruce, springsteen cats not the kind of stuff that we do. I'm not surprised to hear that I guess the former governor is a is obsessed with. Mr Asbury Park and again just so on. Understand better more clearly, this is the tax advantage here is that by investing the capital gains on your investment, you can avoid paying the. Twenty three percent the capital gains tax and that basically. Sure go ahead, go ahead. Well, basically, the way it works is that if you invest money or capital gains in and opportunities zone and you leave it in for at least ten years, not only is the initial investment completely tax free but then all of the proceeds that you make on that investment are completely tax free. So high net worth individuals. And family offices large corporations the generate large amounts of capital gains love this program, and indeed it opened up about six point two trillion dollars in available capital based on the amount of capital gains that we generate in our economy. So of that amount, David Roughly a hundred billion dollars has been invested thus far into opportunities zones off. The roughly eight months programs operate. And again, the idea is the long leave the money and means completely tax free for ten years out of step seven years you pay are you're eighty five percent excuse but I know that that number surprises me would you say this this this one, hundred, billion, his far more than was estimated when the legislation was passed. No I think it's probably rolling out slower than A lot of folks had hoped and as you can imagine, the vast majority of those deals that have been done thus far has been around real estate and real estate redevelopment certainly in the healthcare sector I think we're still the only firm out here. That's a healthcare focus opportunities on fund it. You know it we've been the only ones to my knowledge. So we're you know we're granted here, but we have yet even break a billion, but we're that's our goal.

Beauty Tips To Empower The Visually Impaired
"Fabulous guest and co-host is Chelsea win. She is a licensed cosmetologist an image consultant and she also is a very special kind of educator Chelsea Welcome to our show. Thank you. Thank you so much for having me Amber, sir, Thank you. To be honest today. It's a real honor to have you on because I'm going to let you explain the type of education that you provide. Well, thank you so much. Aside from being a cosmetology instructor where I work for a global company name Chi and I teach hair make I mean hair techniques and color techniques and Beauty School for students as well as for teachers and salon owners. I also teach non Visual and adaptive techniques for individuals who are blind wage. Julion pearre disabled on you know, makeup techniques grooming hygiene how to do their own Nails how to do their own hair so that they can prepare for job interviews and even more so more importantly it's about being independent self confident and always looking your best whether or not you can or cannot see yourself in the mirror. I have to say you be honest with everybody listening right now when I you know, a lot of the times I'll receive story pitches and ideas some of them come from you at home. And when this month when your name came across my desk, I was intrigued because admittedly, you know, I thought I don't know that many people who are visually impaired and you know, when I started this podcast, I really wanted this to be a place where people could come and get education and be empowered and and also be dead, Lightened about things that we might not know about whether it was products or procedures or or people in general and you know through talking to a learned that October which I feel like I'm not many people know his breast cancer breast cancer awareness month is is also visually impaired Awareness Month. Correct? Yes. It is the month where there is white cane safety day, which is nationally recognized day and it's about you know, recognizing individuals who are blind and visually impaired and really addressing their independence with by using the white cane which as you know is what they use to help with orientation and mobility and all the Independence that maybe a lot of people may not perceive that they have right so but yeah, it's a very empowering Day, I am so honored that you are here. I think that for again people listening. This is going to be inspiring and emotional when we started talking in our in our pre-owned chat. You've got some some such brilliant tips that whether you are visually impaired or fully sighted. I think that you are going to find incredibly useful and and I hope this podcast particularly gives you a little bit of inspiration and you know, and and that you leave it feeling a grateful for those of you who don't have to deal with visual impairment of how lucky we are. So I think you get into this field. How did you get into this specialty? It you know what I have to say. It was purely by accident. I really was very much like you and very much like most people in the world who may or may not most people haven't met a blind person in their lifetime. And so I was very unaware of the need even that this even existed that there were blind women who wanted to learn how to do their makeup nor did I even have the idea that that that was something that you know was a concern and so several years ago back in 2011. I started volunteering reading for the blind games on a radio show called sight into sound radio and I was volunteering, you know, just to read books read, you know magazines to to the song mind and then over that course a couple of months later. I went to an event that we were, you know, hosting or not hosting but there and I met a blind young lady. Here in Houston. She's also known as the MasterChef winner for 2012. Her name is Christine Hall. If you pull her up on the internet, you'll find all information about her. She is a blind woman here in Houston who won MasterChef 2012. Wow, and you know, she's like a celebrity in the blind community and I walked up to her cuz I was there on site into sounds behalf. And I said, hey, you know, I'm a hairstylist and a makeup artist. So if you ever need anything, I'll be more than happy to help you and just so you know get you ready for the cameras and get you ready on set and she said, you know Chelsea, there's so many makeup artist and and people like that that are usually on said that can do that for me home. But to be honest since I lost my vision I haven't been able to do my makeup for myself anymore. And I said, oh really and she said, yeah and I said, well she's like, so do you think you can teach How to put on my own makeup and I said, why don't know I've never taught a blind person to put on their own makeup before, you know, I teach you know, young ladies and their mom and later, you know women that come in at my school and all the time who have Vision, but I said, you know what? I don't know but let me give it a try and so so we set up an appointment in her kitchen. I came to house several times and cookies something good. Not yet. Okay. All right. All right. We got to get in there. She did open up a restaurant here in Houston called The Blind goat, so just woke up there, but she has her own restaurant and she she does cook but at that time, you know, we sat down in her kitchen and she she taught me what it is that a blind person needs. Like how to teach her I didn't even know how to teach her. So she was like, okay. Well, can you describe that a little bit better? Can you like what you know and then hear what does that bottle feel? Like, what does that feel? And so here I am in our kitchen learning how to teach a blind person with audio description. I didn't even know what the word meant at the time then it was how to give verbal instructions on how to describe color how to map your face with your fingers and feel like orientate or your body. Like where are my eyebrows where you know are my thoughts eyelids and things like that and then like using your hands as guides and using voice as you know instruction and so it was like and then learning how to identify the differences between this bottle versus that
Paola Mendoza on How We Can All be Freedom Fighters
"I am so excited to share that today we are joined by Palomino Sir. Thank you so much being on the show with us today for the. Thank you so much for having me. Yes. So first thing I just wanted to say in our last episode, we actually touch a little bit about how important it is that as Latinos and underrepresented communities we continue to own our voice. Get Louder with it, and then we believe in our power to change things I, want to start by just honoring you as an inspiring example of that as the Co Women's March with your book sanctuary the just dropped and just the powerful ways in which you use your platform. So thank you so much for being a model for us of how we how we can do that. Thank you so much for those kind words you know I do the work that I do not for myself. Obviously, but her for my community and for my son in for the young people that are coming up after. I appreciate you know thank you. I want to get into your book before but before that, I wanted to touch on what has felt you know heart shattering and also very poignant in. That's the recent passing of Beta GINSBURG. You've been reflecting on and honoring her life and in many ways, year platforms and one thing that you said that really inspired me was may her memory be a revolution? How has your passing affected you and what do you think this particular moment means for country I think that this moment is a defining moment it is a moment that is defining the future of our country. Obviously Supreme Court, Justice a Lifetime appointment. Is Not about the next year or the next five years or the next decade it's about what this country will will look like for the next forty years. It's what this country will look at for my son's entire life essentially, and that to me is how poor in this moment is for each individual for our future and for our country. So on a personal note, I've been reflecting about the importance of what this moment means. And what it's actually meant for. My past and my pass to get here I immigrated to this country when I was three years old. I came with my mother, my brother we were coming to be reunited with my father and very soon after we got here, my father abandoned us He left my mom with three year old and seven year old new family no English two hundred dollars in her pocket in. La By herself an impossible situation circumstance and just to add to that impossibility three weeks after my father left he my mom found out that she was pregnant. So, she was pregnant on top of justice tragedy and my mother coming from Columbia being ardent Catholic had to make a decision. Thank. God. She was in a country where she could make a decision to choose to have an abortion she chose to have an abortion and that choice that she made literally saved our lives and Now that idea that Possibility Rover says Wade is very much threatened. That millions of women, hundreds of thousands of women might not have that choice in the future in to me. That is a frightening thing to me that. Produces a lot of rage. It makes me be very ready to fight for what we're going to have to do. To save this democracy and save this country. So. What I have been also reflecting on a lot is The. Important. RPG's life and her legacy that she left for us. And clearly. Ruth Bader GINSBURG was meant to live in the time that she was meant to live in. Clearly the work that she was meant to do was meant for those eighty seven years in her life. And I take comfort in the fact that I believe that all of us, each of us were also met for this moment or also meant to be alive. At this moment in time when our democracy is on the brink of collapse when we have authoritarian in office when our feminist icon. Hero. Guardian a democracy has passed and each of us are meant to roll up our sleeves. Get to work and do all the work the dirty work the hard work the good work of saving our democracy because that is what the next. Four days until the election entails and what happens after the election until curation and beyond, and so I want all the listeners to know that they are also met this moment they were born precisely for this time and they have to live up to this moment we all do.
Trump To Select Amy Coney Barrett as Supreme Court Nominee
"This edition from NPR News. I'm Scott's time and we are expecting President Trump to announce Amy Cockney Barrett as his nominated. He was Supreme Court this afternoon. Judge Barrett sits on the seventh Circuit Court of Appeals. Ah, in in Chicago, although she's in Indiana and served his clerk to just Saturnian, Scalia. She, of course, would fill the vacancy left by Ruth Bader Ginsburg, whose life and career were honored at the court in the capital this week, and you will be buried next week at Arlington National Cemetery. Let's now welcome Michael McConnell of Stanford University law professor and former federal appeals court judge. Thanks very much for being with us, sir. It's a pleasure. I gather, you know, Amy Cockney Barrett. What's your estimation on her apparent nomination? What kind of justice you might be? Well, I do. Ah. She was a professor at Notre Dame Law School for about 15 years and then Now that capacity I knew her fairly well, she is. We're not personal friends, but I'm in admirers of both her academic work and her performance on the On the seventh circuit. Uh, she's I think a completely unsurprising nominee. Even her opponents recognized that she's extremely qualified, highly and intelligent, hardworking. What are personal Friends knows what in it. Fantastically warm, kind, considerate human being she is and she's I think she'll be an inspiration, especially toe working mothers like like my two daughters, because, and it's just seven Children, including Two adopted Children from Haiti. One right in the wake of the terrible earthquake and on almost everybody who knows of Amy has a story about just how and how she She is so kind and does just considerate things in ways that no one whatever I know about not publicly, but just on a cz, a wonderful warm human being. Let me ask you about some of the public stuff, though, because you're a former U. S appeals court judge and, um I wonder if you've taken note of any particular rulings that she's had the chance to make in her time on the bench. And not quite three years as an appellate judge. He's written 100 opinions, which Dad and itself is pretty impressive. That's Andi. They are. You know, I've not read all of them, but I've read quite a few of them and they're consistently Love of a kind of restrained, very lawyerly of fashion sheep. She clerked for Justice Scalia, who was a brilliant writer, she doesn't write like Scalia. I'm You know, for better or worse. Her opinions are not very rhetorical. There. Ah, rigorous. They are much more low key. Er than that on DH. You know her, and they're just they're consistently conservative, but mainstream conservative. I don't think There's not an extremist bone in her body does does she have opinions? That might surprise some of her supporters every now and then? Ah, every now and then. Ah! Of course, no one really knows where any judge is going to come out on every and maybe we should remind ourselves calling someone a conservative jurist doesn't mean they will always vote a certain way, right? That's right. And the modern legal conservative movement is little different from conservative politics because the conservative legal movement is really mostly about having a more restrained Roll for judges that they ought to read the Constitution modestly with humility, not reading their own preferences into it, And that generally means leaving legislatures and the Congress to make most Democratic choices rather than having the court be like a super Legislature. Stanford law Professor Michael McConnell. Thanks so much for being with us, sir. Thank you.

"Sir. Thank you. You're listening to all things considered from NPR news. There will be no college football in the Big 10 or the Pac 12 this fall. The athletic conferences both made their announcements this afternoon, citing the covert 19 pandemic Conference officials say they are hoping sports start up again in the spring. Kavita Davidson is following this for the Atlantic and she joins us on Skype high there. Hi. Thank you. I'm at the athletic, by the way, just to tell you I'm so sorry. I misspoke there. Tell us more about what happened today. What did the Big 10 and Pac 12 decide? So it wasn't that surprising given the developments that we saw over the weekend, but it's still a stunning so that the Big 10 announced this morning early afternoon that Would be postponing fall football until at least the spring. Now. The Pac 12 followed suit after after a meeting among its president, not only announcing that it would be postponing fall football are all false sports. It would be postponing all sports through the end of the calendar year, and that includes basketball. Now the Big 10 Impact 12 for two of the five power conferences. Where did the other three stand? So the big swing vote, If you will. Among the three remaining is the is the big 12 there. They've kind of been on the fence throughout this entire debate. The SEC has said all along that its medical advisory committees say that it's safe. It's it's it's okay to go forward with football and that it would be keeping an eye on what the Big 10 in the Pac 12 we're announcing, but that it would make its own decisions. So where everything's kind of up in the air. We're still kind of waiting for the other. Three dominoes to fall after after today's announcements from the From the 1st 2 conferences, it does seem like a dramatic about face. Just last week, the Big 10 announced that it would play a reduced season. But but still a season. So this is the biggest question, I think is. It's exactly what changed has been six days since the Big 10 released its fall schedule, and they're really haven't been any great answers to that to that. And even though the question has been asked repeatedly, Ohio State's athletic director was just on Big 10 network today and basically said the science came out of so fast, But the fact of the matter is the science. The science that they're referring Tio when it comes to the long term, heart and long consequences that can potentially arise from contracting from contracting Cupid that science hasn't actually developed very much in the past six days, So I think that question is one that these commissioners in these university presidents will still have to answer. Have you heard any reaction yet from players? I mean, just yesterday On this program, we had defensive lineman from Washington State Dallas Hobbs saying he wanted to play. What are you hearing now that the plug has been pulled I mean, these players are like they're they're the biggest victims in this entire college football fight, right? I mean, they have said that they wanted to play. They have been given absolutely no leadership throughout this entire thing on DH. They haven't really been given any assurances that the protocols would be in place or would suffice to place to place safely. If that's even possible. So you know you've seen Um, Ohio State quarterback Justin feels just kind of tweeted shake my head like, I don't think anybody really knows what to do with themselves on the questions going forward for these athletes are what happened to my scholarship. What happens to my transfer Eligibility on DH? What happens to my potential future in the NFL and beyond once I'm losing this season. It is Kavitha Davidson of the athletic.

"Talk way. Just got some good news from the Lions on thanks to Laura for passing along this statement that came out and that is that Matt Stafford is back on the roster. He was never coverted 19 positive, apparently under under the NFL Players Association protocols. You've got to take multiple tests, and his test was apparently negative, Negative and then positive turns out It was a false positive. So he was he was trying to get tested so that he could end enter back into camp. Start practicing with the guys. The false positive. Put him on the sidelines for I guess. Two days. In his next three tests were all negative. His family's been tested. They're all negative. So again, Matthew Stafford never had Cove. It was never covert positive and his family everybody killing the kids. They are all okay and think of this for that, So we'll see. We'll see mad out there. Hopefully slinging Cem. Some passes really soon, so he has been restored to the active roster and a good thing, too. I'm going to assume that all of our calls or where we thought they would be. Let's go to Paul and Clinton Township with some thoughts on the day. Hello, Paul. Yes. How are you? Excellent, sir. Thank you. Oh, thank thank sparkle. Ah, to be true. Usually I after Rush Limbaugh, I hear you every day or when a outside But today What story get me to call was That review caller which told you They laid three polling station in one if you remember He was combining school district's right. Yes, Correct. But to me apparently looks mismanagement or maybe not enough stuff. What they looking different. They try to make people angry. Afraid because they covet and everything. It's not for there. Primary. It's more for the general election later to do later in November. People staring In my view. Well, you and I okay, I will tell you that they have succeeded and ah, so there is a poll that came out and it came out through Ipsos and I can't pull it up in the moment. I'll try to get it while we're chatting here. But it shows a high number of voters that are frightened to go to the polls in November. And some of these air based on their own reads of things that they feel that they're Ah, Ah, and here's the interesting part of it. Democrats are twice as likely as Republicans to worry about in person voting. Nearly two out of three you seeing it as a large or moderate risk to their health. So That certainly is going to be driving a lot of the absentee vote. But it also may be depressing the turnout altogether. I have seen that way, because Ah, ifyou're going store, either one store it doesn't matter what name They have more people than a police station. And the people stay with us A line by what? They were in the polling station. You go. What? Go home. This's more to make that To make a three point decision in one make that just make easy what you say. The Democrats reached that point when they want to scare people. So here the numbers. Let me break it down for you really quickly Since you brought it up and listen, I'm not. I think that people Americans are pretty highly informed and are able to judge risk for themselves based on what they see. And if they say people behaving responsibly, they're going to feel safer. In this case, 50% of the respondents wrist rank in person voting as risky but on ly, 21% said it was very risky. So it was kind of the same level is going shopping in a grocery store. Now, If you're gonna go to a grocery store, you only have to go vote once. Right, so I would think that that's going to. I don't think that's going to be a huge factor. But it's something I think that we have to watch. It again shows why, you know, today we were wearing our mast. We still try to stay out of everybody's way because we want them to feel comfortable and they wanted to come back in November. Thanks so much, and I know you were talking about. I think Mike's notion that yeah, they had combined these polling places remember? That's also done for efficiency because there's no sense in running three polling places in their mind and the expense thereof. If turnout is going to be 1/3 because so many people have moved to absentee voting out of concerns and fears, and also in some cases, convenience to sterling Heights and find out what's on Chris's mind today. Hello, Chris. How did it go for you? Oh, hi. How are you? Excellent. Didn't mean to blindside, you know? Yes, Actually, I was calling because I took my 97 year old father to vote in Farmington. And my husband. I voted absentee ballot, but my father insisted that he had to go in person to vote. And so it was a precinct in Farmington. And it was about an hour ago, and he I think it was only the 60 67th person that had voted there today. So not really a good turnout, but, um You know, just hey, wanted to go vote person. So so Don't let me let me figure this out here. Ah! He's been voting for 76 years. Which takes him back in into the forties, the first vote he cast then Right. He must see a world war to guy. Yes, you Bless his heart..

induced as usual thank you very much for that Rhode Island democratic senator Jack reed well you say local governments are not able to provide services or what impact will this have on the economy and without additional resources from the federal government how will we be able to provide you with services I'm so would I still governments do provide a lot of that critical services that people rely on day to day police fire public safety all the things that they deal with it is that the government does tend to be for the most part state local governments and essentially all the states have a balanced budget requirement so what you see when when revenues turned down expenses turn up as they have as you see layoffs state local governments amount to something like thirteen percent of the labor force that one of the largest lawyers so it's you can really weigh on the economy states are in tight financial straits very tight what happens is first of all they they will cut essential services secondly the lay people off and all of that will weigh on so essentially that could be the biggest drag on the economy going forward the stage for their contributions to contract literally the last of the use of social media it can be a dragon in fact it was after the global financial crisis and during the Great Recession for number of years pretty well documented now that it that it was a drag on growth one of the other issues in center around his ankles he's looking instances things for him to sentencing along these are asking Americans as computers eleven point seven percent in the prior were forced so once again we will see a situation institutionally maybe unintentionally institutional and probably longer significant portion of this charrette will be laid on the shoulders of average American workers because that there is a workers will be laid off you get adequate or acceleration I think I don't know the exact number but it's certainly right and of course we know from people have lost their jobs so far in the private sector come from parts of the service industry that are correct one of ours and they're heavily heavily out lower income people in order to represent over percent winner over let me turn to the main jobs report I mean it was encouraging the do you represent are trying in the corner of the labor market is fine no we're gonna go for it sh your previous comments suggest that that's encouraging news but going forward still changing and unemployment figures will be confronting us for years perhaps is that accurate yes so it was definitely definitely good news and and maybe the biggest data surprise anybody can remember people thought it would be they were looking at claims data and other things but so what the larger context in which you point out something like close to twenty five million people have been displaced in the work force either partially or through unemployment and so we have a long road ahead of us to get those people back to work it's really a good thing that we're starting we're starting earlier than we thought that's nothing positive thing but we just have to just acknowledge that it's a it's a it's a lot of people in it as I mentioned earlier if there's a broad expectation that we'll see big numbers of people coming back this summer and we certainly hope that turns out to be right but also that those people who work in the service industries that are gonna take longer recovery recovery will be a lot of them and they're gonna need you know that if they don't they'll find it hard to get back to work as quickly as the others one of my concerns and having the service through the woods we thought great recession of two thousand eight nine and ten is that unemployment rates will say hi and our unemployment is and then it says will expire and in fact what happens is you know in different areas of the country they will they will lack and so you could have saved him very high unemployment rates one of my my comments are we do need in your view have extended unemployment benefits is much greater than the present Laura allows and also would make sense indexers basses Jewish or non employment rate actually we don't find certain states are certain areas away well behind and they lose their benefits I am so I think they're going to be eight a large number of people will not be able to go immediately go back to work at their own job were even in their own industry to be a significant group that's left over even when we after we get the employment and the details of this are entirely a matter of fiscal policy and and I you know there are a lot of really interesting ideas around about how to do that but I do think you know the they'll be hard pressed to find work and they're gonna need support they don't have regular way state unemployment insurance for it but that's something I would be looking at is what kind of support we're going and and also really are there are there around either with some of them are going to need to find new paths through the economy other ways we can help you thank you thank you.

Irish how you doing today. Nanday, sir. Thank you very much. Okay. I know you're kind of touched on this little bit in the last hour. But one thing that's been bugging me for quite a while. Now, the first big job ObamaCare, Biden was managing the stimulus package and someone needs to ask him detail about how that actually went. And if this guy is going to be my president. I, you know, we should know that he's on the up and up and and so much check into that. What happened to that money? Well, even back then it was going. Was put in charge of the stimulus because it was distinctly Washingtonian idea. And that's Joe knows. I mean, managing government really went. The stimulus was was a payoff mostly to government and public employee union people, it was a recession, and that that stimulus was actually designed to keep them employed. So they continue to pay union dues which democrat party would see significant percentage of. Couldn't just go to the treasury. And write a check to the Democrat National Committee Obama couldn't stimulus Bill was a circuitous way to get some of that money back to the democrat party. And whether it worked or not is irrelevant. They tried. They cared. They attempted to stimulate the economy. We're in a recession. Everybody wanted the economy's stimulated. Nobody's going to you know. There any hands on managerial evidence here to link by into.

"Inside, sir? Thank you. Hope you're feeling better. I appreciate that you were mentioning in your opening monologue. The federal code eight title, eight United States code subsection, eleven eighty two the President Trump could invoke right now to stop this crisis at the border and there's another federal statute that he could also invoked to stop the crisis. One reason why we have so many legal aliens invading our country because you have numerous state and local officials who are harboring these illegal aliens under the guise of sanctuary and tidal eight United States coach subsection thirteen twenty four which is tidal bringing in harboring certain aliens on has criminal penalties for people who do so they can be fined and imprisoned for doing. So and and President Trump could. Arrest these government officials and that would drastically reduce the flow of illegal aliens into that's that's all true. This doing all of this would be real hard ball. You could you could. The national emergency declaring it's a different thing than the federal statute. Title eight section eleven f that gives him the right to stop immigration, right? This minute to day if he wants to shut down the border has the legal authority to do it declaring a national emergency would then facilitate the use of funds from elsewhere the budget to start building a wall. Those are two separate things both can be done at the same time as well as your site on sanctuary cities. That would be you know, what I would love. I would love the day Muller's report drops Trump does all of this. I think that would be the biggest display of hard ball Trump. Could employ Muller's report drops. Here comes the speculation about what Senate and Trump executes executive orders. That the supreme court has recently affirmed he has the power to do to just shut down the border while we assess the situation then declared the emergency start building the wall. Hey would be unbeatable. That would be real hard ball at I. I know that that Trump cares about Republican party support for all of these things and because that has ties to eventual impeachment and vote in the Senate. Hey, folks, how you sleep is of paramount importance to the people that work at bollandbranch I got. I slept a lab ten hours and forty six minutes here. I'd I track it now for a host of reasons. Ten hours forty six minutes did not wake up once. And I think it's the reason I'm here today. I think I got a whole solid block of really deep uninterrupted sleep. And if that hadn't happened last night, I didn't. But the night before I did. And after that night is when the fever vanished, and I felt a little bit. Refurbished all the people at bollandbranch care about things like this is why they're in business. They work. They make some of the world's most comfortable sheets. You might think. Why does it even matter because most of the time you're using sheets? You're asleep. Well, that's the point. They want you to have the best night's sleep possible. Having pure luxury to look forward to at the end of a long day. These are the kind of sheets that you only get in five star hotel suites or that you pay a thousand dollars for in retail locations. They don't cost a thousand dollars bollandbranch. But they are the same thing are the same luxury because they sell direct to you on line. They're two hundred and fifty dollars and the first time you buy it's fifty dollars off. So the first set is two hundred dollars and hundreds of thousands of Americans have discovered just how comfortable bollandbranch sheets are. And they give this company five-star reviews. They have some of the best customer service going. They've got a guarantee here that that is unbeatable thirty days you try to sheets for thirty days. And if they don't meet your expectations, you send them back and they'll refund every penny..

Well, I've got a site. That's going to surprise you. And back to the phones we go with John in pleasant hill Iowa. Hello there. John. Hi. How are you doing Kim? I'm good. Welcome, sir. Thank you very much. Hey, thanks for taking my call. I don't have a question. Basically. I was just calling to I wanted to say, thanks. A few weeks ago? I was listening to your show, and my wife, and I were getting ready for a vacation in Mexico. Anyway, I turned on your show, and one of the things that you were talking about was a free app called mobile passport. Oh, isn't that? Great. It is wonderful. I don't know about you. But international travel is pretty nerve wracking for me. You know, what it can be? I mean, and sometimes I mean, obviously, you didn't go through Heathrow, but actually go through Heathrow a lot. And whenever I go overseas to Europe or lender. What have you and they're just not nice. I mean, just not good people doesn't they don't, you know? It's like, you know, take it out of the bag and take your shoes off and all this other stuff. So it can get nerve wracking. Well, yeah. And that's with me with the the international part of it. It just makes it even that much worse anyways. So, you know, I after listening to your show I decided to download the app, and we use it on our way back from Chicago where we we flew in through Chicago. So we got there, you know, and opened up the app out at answered a few questions and submitted it and probably within ten or fifteen seconds. We got a bar code back from them. And once we got in our lines for the customs, we there was actually about probably two hundred and fifty or three hundred people in front of us. But with the mobile passport app, they put us in a different line. And we're actually the first ones through. And didn't have any weight at all. Isn't that amazing? So, you know, so you bypass two hundred and fifty people inside only you're like the first like you get the green light, you just go. And that's I'm so glad that you called in because I think everybody should have this. I mean, if you are coming back into the country from anywhere around and you're going through a major airport. Just like you didn't John in like, I do that. You everybody seems to go to the right? But you go to the left and you're like it's like, oh, so I don't have to wait in that long line. No, silly you go over here. And at least for now. Unlike TSA, pre check, right. I think everybody has TSA pre check right now. Not actually not too many people have the mobile passport app. And thank you so much for calling in being so kind to take some time and say, thank you. You know, we do a lot of work here over a commander dot com and on the show and the TV show and stuff like that. And so he's nice to hear that you actually are using everything that we pass along to better your digital life..

"Sir. Thank you for calling in. Yeah. I I was I listen to you all the time as much as I can I love your show, especially fellow Missourian. What's up? But yeah, I this is one of my biggest arguments to anybody on the left or the right? And it's one of the biggest reasons I don't side myself with really either party. I can better myself a libertarian very conservative though. And it is it is a big problem in our country. Everybody wants to pick everything to the federal level. I mean, why why must we have big brother? Tell us what we can do all about. Give back to our our conservative basics. Drives me up. All I I am right there with you. I completely agree. Yeah. Why does it always have to go? Great. That's a great point, Jerry. God bless ya constitution. Yeah. No, I yeah. Exactly, whatever. But people think that just can't do as the government. The government. Do it. I just doesn't make sense doesn't make sense Linda online for calling out of the state of Texas, the Republic, Texas. God bless Texas. Linda, welcome to the show. Right. Thank you very much. Dana. How you doing? I'm doing. Well, how are you doing? It's friday. So you have to be in a good move except for all these headlines. Oh, amen. Oh, it's driving me bonkers, actually. But. What I wanted to address was the. Just had to bring. The democrat party has. Like, oh, yeah. We're of the wall. Oh, yeah. We're for the wall. Except when they haven't action president. They knew no one else who's gonna do it. I mean, I've been rolling around in my head. I'm like really what different because. Watch to take action. They know he actually want to do it. Now, they have to roll it back. That what I've been thinking. I think that's a good observation lend. I appreciate your call non. I think we're good observations for sure. Yeah. I think yeah. I think it was easier for them to be that way because previously. They didn't have anybody who is serious about. Before they were against it. Because we have the secure fences act that was two thousand and six, but with that though, you have to have interior, and you have to have an increase in resources where it concerns border security, and that's a. Huge parts of it are all big parts of it. We have John Colorado Indiana on line one. John welcome to the show. Happy friday. Thank you. My young daughters. Listen, you all the time. Thank you. In regards to. Yeah. You're welcome also gun carrion, not governments. Question in regards to Trump declared a state of emergency. And you may have me on this just a little bit. If I knew I believe we got the Affordable Care Act or ObamaCare because it was declared a matter of national security because over twenty five percent of the governor of our of our economy now, I may be wrong. But I would think overall illegal immigration, then that's what it is illegal has got to account for twenty five percent of damage to our economy when you look at the overall cost and a bit now is there a difference between declaring a state of emergency. As Trump is alluded you or making it a matter of national security as Obama did with ObamaCare is one better than the other. Are they the same are they different in which would look better, and I'll get off here and let you. Yeah. Educate me a little bit. Appreciate your call. And and John and thanks thanks to that question. I think well the way I think that the way that they were that while the way that they were presented it with ObamaCare was that it was a tax issue is is one of the things that we were arguing is that well because it affects much of the economy. This is why it has to be this is why we have to treat it as a law, and it can't be this. Executive action edict. We can't have that. Now when the president was citing an issue of national security, that's one of the that's one of the arguments for Dacca. And I even think that that was I thought that was a stretch for when he was when he was making those remarks. I mean, I think when you look at the opioid crisis, and the fact now that deaths from drug overdoses, I share the Washington Post had the article several weeks ago that showed how the life span in the United States is actually decreasing because of the opioid crisis. And that is because we have so many drugs coming into the country it cetera et cetera. And it's more. So than than accidents out with vehicles, poisonings firearms, everything that's where I think constitutes a crisis. Let's kick in Florida man, really quickly. We're.
