California Has a Lot of Recall Attempts, and Not Just for Governors

"The city of los angeles alone. There are currently three efforts underway right now to recall members of the los angeles city council and the tone of the l. a. times here is telling quote another day another recall notice in the city of los angeles. You need a grand total of five voters to get together to begin the process of calling for a recall for los angeles official five voters. Literally you can start a recall with the number of people you can fit in your camry and it's not just lay across the state of california. There are more than seventy elected officials who are facing the threat of recall just this year. Because that's how they do it in california california asked for recalls all the time you can mount a recall campaign against any statewide elected official for any reason at all if you can achieve the grand results of collecting signatures from just twelve percent of people. Who voted in the last election for that seat. Not twelve percent of registered voters but twelve percent of the number of people who voted in the last election for that seat specifically. That's all you need to be able to get that. Statewide elected official. Put up for recall as low bars. Go this is kind of so low. It just sits there on the floor and invites you to walk on it. And so every governor in california for the past sixty years as faced at one attempt to recall them And you will of course recalled the successful two thousand and three recall of democrat. California governor gray davis. That's how we ended up. Bizarrely with governor arnold schwarzenegger for a hot but now the republicans are trying again with this.

"And for the people that have been vaccinated out there maybe willingly. Are you going to start to step up and fight for the people that don't want to get vaccinated. You know what i have found is so many conservatives that have been vaccinated there silent on this issue they really don't care and it goes to show that the circle of tyranny gets smaller and smaller and we saw this exact same thing happened with the tech companies.

Remembering Climate Change, a Message From the Year 2071

"Twenty two thousand. As we're a crux in human history they began with the first pandemic a slap to the face of everyone as they had to acknowledge that they were a single civilization on a single biosphere utterly dependent on science to keep them alive. Civilization is a fragile thing and although people started the twenties hoping to ignore that profound truth even after the first pandemic the great heat waves of twenty twenty three torched any such hope humans cannot survive combinations of high heat and high humidity that rise above an index temperature called wet bulb thirty five and that year the wet bulb thirty six events in india in southeast asia and in the american midwest killed so many more people than the first pandemic that it was made clear to everyone things simply had to change the arrival of the second pandemic put an exclamation mark on all that the question that desperate point was could things change could humanity stop it's destructive ways and restore balance to its relationship to its biosphere crucially. Could it lower the global average temperature of the earth in time to avoid killing millions more people more animals and indeed entire species looking back from our perspective sixty years later this of course looks possible because they did but it was by no means a sure thing you have to imagine what it felt like at the time when panic filled the air and no one could be sure. Success was even physically possible many declared that humanity was doomed. This is why that decade gets called the turbulent twenties or the terrifying twenties only much later did some historians began to call it the terrific twenties or even the roaring twenties although that's a historians joke and as usual a bad one it was not at all like the roaring twenties of a century before it was much stranger than that in these critical years lessons learned in the first pandemic put to use. The scientific community had rallied to meet that crisis in an unprecedented way. Unleashing a burst of cooperation and creativity never seen before and now they did it again.

What Is the U.S. Doing to Help Cuba?

"Get to it with our first topic. Which is actually about the historic protests in cuba where thousands of people took to the streets all across the country amid an economic crisis in food shortages exacerbated by the corona virus pandemic. In the last few days we've seen the government in cuba restrict internet access and block most social media sites. Although from what i read. Twitter is still like bobbin in cuba because the government uses twitter and also there were reports of over one hundred people who have been arrested or missing and that actually is. According to amnesty international and at least one person has died in clashes with police on wednesday. The president of cuba miguel diaz canal announce that they would lift restrictions to allow travelers to bring food and medicine into cuba from abroad. There is also an admission by him saying that his government could have done better with these protests that was interesting meanwhile back in the united states i feel like a comic book like meanwhile back at the white house on thursday president joe biden call. Cuba quote failed state and condemn their government's actions. We also know that the us has a role in this as there has been a decades old. I mean more than sixty years trade embargo by the united states against cuba which essentially prevents any business between the countries didn't back to nineteen sixty two k. So this has become an american tradition. Now the embargo just what it is. Yeah right you know what i'm saying. So but then the other thing is during the trump administration and this is what i find interesting. There were more sanctions put on cuba under trump and flight and remittances from family members in the us to cuba were even further restricted by the bynum ministrations. Pretty much has done. Nothing since biden has come into office. Nothing's really changed when it comes to cuba which you would think by now you know if we all remember obama he was like. Let's lift the embargo. You know what i mean. It was like you're in that administration. Joe right but according to the vitamin administration. They said that they are reviewing these policies but they've yet to reverse. Any of them are fabulous intern. Sarah her shandor spoke with an i guests. She has been on. Itt before seventy nine three goes who is a correspondent for political and somebody is of cuban-american descent and she has been reporting on cuba. This week and sabrina talked about the government's suppressive tactics like cutting internet access. And what cubans are hoping for so. Let's listen connecting for people has been a difficult. There's friends that. I haven't heard from in days that i know went out for the protests in there is that frustration anxiety about were. They beat in where they arrested. Are they missing an. It's hard to connect with people at this moment but a lot of people feel a level of frustration and desperation. That i had not heard before i mean. People have been tired of the dictatorship in cuba. But i will actually say from my perspective. Who was born and raised in cuba has been in exile in the united states for the majority of her life at this point. She's ninety one and she is optimistic. That change can happen. I mean her attitude about this is it can't stay this way forever and that these human rights can be violated forever. People can't be going hungry in dying on the streets from the pandemic without access to a hospital without access to medicine let it cannot continue that way indefinitely so that if it doesn't happen this time it has to happen at some point

Smith's nineteen fifty six children's novel the hundred and one donations and despite being positively obsessed with the movie as a toddler. I never knew that the canine cartoon marked a crucial turning points in the history of animation. And one which disney may not have ever made it to the other side of had. The movie not worked out. One hundred and one donations marked walt disney animation studios twenty second full length feature animation having been preceded by classics like snow white. Pinocchio fantasia and peter pan. It began development in the late fifties following the box office bomb of sleeping beauty which took six million dollars to make but only earned back five million sleeping. Beauty used the dominant animation technique of the time that required artists to hand trace drawings on transparent celluloid or sell sheets according to smithsonian magazine reported on this moment in animation history. Disney movies usually have one to two dozen cells per second so in total sleeping. Beauty had almost one million cells. That's one million drawings done and traced by hand a ton of work for a movie that ended up costing the studio a million dollars.

"He wanted to deal with those facts in a very different way than president kennedy or president johnson. Obviously but they were living in the same universe. it didn't occur to ronald reagan To have to for barry goldwater to claim that the nineteen sixty four election was stolen right so there was a sense that the constitution for all its imperfections provided the rules of the road. The pick your metaphor the buoy of our lives the guardrails whatever it is and that politics was a mediation of differences. Not an apocalyptic struggle. What is the title of the series main fate of fact. Well facts was a relevant and controlling force for american politics with some exceptions Until really the last five or six years and my argument is that donald trump was the match that hit a garage floor. That had a lot of gasoline spilled on it. There's always a paranoid style. There's always a fringe. There's always an extreme. In american life. The john birch society the That was the cunanan of the of of the cold war. There's always Some extreme that in richard hoffstetter as paranoid believes the country is in the hands of unseen forces that are penalizing and trying to dominate. What is so striking today. And i would not have argued this five years ago So i try to. I don't always practice what i preach but i do. I in this case. It's always better to hear a sermon from the center than a saint isn't it which is good given the relative proportion of those in the world. Exactly you know. I thought trump was in twenty fifteen twenty sixteen even into seventeen eighteen. I argued quite vociferously that this was a difference of degree. Not kind that. Trump represented a kind of right wing nativist extremist racist nationalistic populism. That was deeply rooted in american history. I still believe that but what is different. And what the evidence of the last five years as shown me particularly after january six. Is that the republican party. Not just the right wing. Not just the extremes. But a major political party the party of eisenhower and nixon and reagan and ford and the bushes. And i suspect a lot of your listeners. Think that all those people were were terrible but can be in a comparative sense. They were not They believed in the mediation of differences. What has changed is that sixty percent of one of the two major governing parties in the united states believes ally a self evident law. Not even a very close call of live which is which is the stolen election. And so what i wanted to do. So that's just the death of fact right so that the fate of facts a what. What was it what led not there to be an extreme at work in the american politics. There's always that extreme at work in american politics of but what what made the center part of that party loses. Its mind and so as i was thinking about it. And this podcast. What we're talking about is simply my opinion So take it or leave. It is that there has been a building frustration among conservatives among those who believe that the marketplace except when it helps them should take primacy over the state Those who held basic republican views..

"Podcast from wnyc studios. It's wednesday may twenty six history classes and session with none other than the claimed historian and journalist. Jon meacham formally editor in chief of newsweek seen frequently on msnbc during the trump years as many of you know and through today and now the host of a five episode podcast series called fate of fact. The final episode just came out this morning. John describes the series as being about the origins of the strong grip misinformation and disinformation have on our politics with an emphasis on why the right has chosen to break with the governing consensus that however imperfect was once embodied by what he calls the figurative conversation between franklin roosevelt and ronald reagan. In fact before we even start talking to jon meacham here are two clips from the first episode of fate of fact this is president john f. kennedy from when he was in office early nineteen sixties governing optimism and what is in our control. Our problems are manmade therefore they can be solved by man and man can be as big as he wants no problem. Human destiny is beyond human beings man's region and spirit have often solved the seemingly unsolvable and we believe they can do it again. Kennedy invoking reason and spirit and of course he was assassinated in nineteen sixty three after which his vice president lyndon johnson won election in a landslide in nineteen sixty four and proposed an array of social programs aimed at reducing poverty that he named the great society. Here's lbj you have the chance. Never before forty two people in any age you can help build a society. What are the demands of morality and the needs of the spirit can be realized in the life of the nation. And with that we welcome jon. Meacham host of the five part podcast series called fate of fact johnson. Always great when you're on welcome to wnyc. Thanks so much one. Put those jfk and lbj clips and context and tell us why you included them. Sure you know. There's always a danger in arguing that there was a golden age You know there was never a once upon a time in american history there will never be a happily ever after it completely but there was this moment at the end in the wake of world war. Two where kennedy and johnson. And yes ronald reagan believe that there was this consensus in the country that the country that had won the second world war that was at least on the kennedy johnson side. That was attempting to Expand the the definition and application of of human liberty that there was this idea that we could in fact that in the phrase of theater parker we could bend the arc of the moral universe toward justice and that may sound homily but as you just played. It actually was a deeply held view and when ronald reagan in nineteen sixty four gave his great speech for barry goldwater that really launched reagan's political career. It is an impenetrable Speech in some parts because he's so devoted to statistics to facts..

I just noted two articles one Cbs online article headline pentagon confirms authenticity. A video showing an identified flying objects at al. Not the i heard of it but we news new york times article headline this is something a little bit different. But it's still coming from the same source. They are not alone. Ufo reports surged in the pandemic. And if i can. I'm gonna put up a visual for both of those articles steak and check it out in the link The provisions that was tucked into the last covid nineteen stimulus. Bill to let An unclassified report come down Mandated in one hundred and eighty days. Were now looking at june. I heard there's been some pushback on that. What's happening here. All relative to what you just said kathleen. Well i think that the government just has finally decided that the majority of americans believe that this is real probably millions of people have had sightings thousands or hundreds of thousands have reported them over the years. And it's it's time. I think two four slow disclosure and i think that the reason for this is that Louis alesando who ran the tip program went public and he had ghosts three videos the tic tac and began ole another one and the navy pilots came forward highly trained many many hours of flying years as Navy officers credible incredibly intelligent credible people are making statements. And it's coming more mainstream than from the ufo community. Absolutely you know. The ufo community was attack by people like philip class and edward condom not the science mainstream scientific community or military community. And so. I think that that difference is probably the reason that it is being taken more seriously and i think that they know now that this is not a threat. But i'm afraid they're going to play it as a threat so two different things If i can go back in history again in july of nineteen fifty two major general.

They generally come back about once every hundred years and then they leave again but in the twentieth century they came back and they haven't left and he said that the air force was looking at that very closely. They were not going to be frantic about it but they were going to do a scientific investigation and this has been going on a long time. The public has known about this but.

Which i really really related to a lot of us. Think you cannot stay on that develops forever like some people. Have this idea that like one day. One the beat and he was just like no as continents. Actually we could forever be broken and destroyed right. Don't think it's not going to get better. That's just like you can really coast as we sell mark. I don't if it's a celebration but as we mark sixty sixty th independence anniversary for sierra leone And we're looking for the next ten years until the next the seventieth whatever the future are you optimistic for what where we're headed.

"Syria one of the ones that i wanted to use. We tell that story because otherwise people just get the short version of africa an it. What struck lucky when in my career was. When i was looking at the i two jobs i also worked at the company s office and i joined the cabinet office a month after tony blair became prime minister and of course he was very much a somewhat supportive of syria. So the great things that has to happen in the general sierra leone in general is like what you were doing these about what you were doing was kind of like destroying the myth of british exceptionalism right to totally at You know oftentimes on lots of times. Believe in their exceptionalism. It is america's agnes socialism. Where he thinks that like oh. We're just great at everything. And you know the whitewash their own history and their own stories in their narratives and they're always the good guys right. they're always on the side of and i think in turn when we're talking about Independence and sierra leone independence. A key part of that is that as individuals country you. I have to destroy the notion ideas or any preconceived about the exceptionalism of the british empire about k. of british people in general. Just definitely down conversation from a place. Acknowledge that we are first of all equals. That's the one thing and there's nothing the powers that be neocolonial powers of this world doer. there's no they don't engage with us because the like they want to help us develop. There's no such thing that concept does every time you see people like that's in your area it is because they have vested interests and those vested interests are oftentimes to preserve certain powers and certain powers over us. So i just wanted to say that because this is about independence week on sierra leone at sixty that we have to keep having the conversation not just about That's not just about celebrating independence also about being anti neocolonial so that those people who come on the promises of helping us developed with their development agenda. Don't take us back without us being aware that really Neocolonial forces trying to still have control over us Control of our resources or influence on the political dynamics in our country neocolonial modern forces and rejecting them that pretend to be aligned with us for our own good but in actuality are there because they have vested interests in light of the fact that is this is the independence edition of our show. And you being a you're british civil servant for jersey. Tell people work experts. How the anti helping help you really does to continue the agenda of the next story about two hundred percent true. And they're right. I spoke to him before this call. And he's like my godfather he actually called to say he loves to drop off his new book on protocols. I online where you can ask him about. What about to tell you next. I was at the cabinet office at tj novalis from by joining four and the british establishment. Away works was that as a deposed prime minister he couldn't be received officially support to on so on a particular day. Soulet court me Hughes previously high commission. Here the bill. You probably know he called me Exactly yeah. He called me and said john was in london. She was aware of the protocol regarding the fight that he was decrease on that he couldn't fight. It was there a way that he could be invited to number ten and believe it or not the last phone call. I had had before the one from suruga was with the diary secretary at number ten sixteen. An appointment for johnny and so i said look i said all i have to do is press. Dial i can speak to them and see what they can do. And so said yeah. Please do so. I've called them straightaway and invited gaba because they had like fifteen minutes slaughter coming tuesday and he posed for some pictures which he always used right to the end of these days but the weird thing was there was a reception for him. organized by ten downing. Street's shouldn't be the and so on. And so also richie civil servants who worked in sierra leone up to the one thousand nine hundred five up to independence with these people who in sarajevo people held in very high regard ought about it was they were will bragging about how because of their white skin when they were in sarajevo. Walk out of the country with pockets stuffed with diamonds. Nobody because they were white. Nobody who desktop monday. Tony was running. Actually they didn't know. I will surrogate the just you that i worked at the office and so they're attended these jokes and when he got too much from the indian had to say to look at the sierra leone. I don't find this funny at all because you know nowadays. Yeah i said you know. Nowadays we talk about corrupt leaders and corrupt people in authority. And you now bragging. What they said was that they used to do was that they will give the travelling. They're quite happily give the damage to their wives. And that's one of them said to laughter. He said to nobody would stop a white woman in us to search her back when she was leaving the country. There's only larry's and of course these men or grew wealthy. And so you know these people who offensively still had this really good reputation good civil servants but corrupt.

They will keep our on us high commissioner. So do on any team. Bad against johnny boorda seriously. Yeah so i ended up on record. I ended up hosting the press conference taking all the questions. It was embarrassing because the gun. High commission os their. The nigerian high commission was to lend support. They spoke a and yet to on high commissioner. Who's high commissioner. Prenton insists premesis famous. Taking base did not speak on that. Stand that so eh. Jerry add by commissioners when spoke at our embassy to talk to the solidirity in sierra leone but the sierra leone high commission now is he dead by the way he's also yes but i can name. Anybody wants to this three rights. I do think it's important in name as it is history of facts right so it's not about like not it's the truth. I the thing is like lack of each trio schism rights. Like how how. It's accents pictures. Richardson did not exist in the hall for listening to you did an individual survivor. Like you know. Let me play my cards right. So that like by not speaking by not doing my job. I wanna make sure that you know. I'm i can keep my job likes seriously. Oh the press. The british press who were there. They were completely perplexed. Because you know the nigerians came out and said we ought to be condemned. The finance came out and said we utterly condemn this data. And i can tell you die commission. He didn't even so much as welcome to the high commission. Said a word the facts. I'm not date of says without leave. Yeah i mean in bizarre out. So it's like a one hour. Press conference updated bieber on based on what i knew to questions based on ended up thanking everybody for company whose it so but what the thing also did for me was that when people were coming over to london a ticket to london from sheridan because of the turmoil in sarajevo. I became aware of the fact that a lot of them in terms of schooling. It will miles behind british children of the same age and so i started hosting three lessons in my house of children are. We've been feeding at no at my own expense. And i could tell you this a six years ago. When i was one of those young children ran up to me in brixton market. And hug me and said she's now a doctor and i couldn't believe it chew stacking for the lessons. That honestly made my day just to see that she sort of grown to those stat tra- under many that sort of through might also be able to keep in touch with the country through their parents. Enter them just. I've always wanted to be historian. Who because people's experiences saw them about what they remember growing up concern. Certain always tried to tell them to forget because a lot of them once they got into england they sort of started pretending they were british and because of the experiences they won't take nothing was time when i was in sierra leone on may twenty seven hundred ninety seven i have just moved back bless than opium because i was really homesick there and my mom was just like fine go back and i had enrolled in school and i was right and then the coup happened and it wasn't unsold realized that i had actually long outs that i don't remember in china too. I think as a twelve year old. Charles use my brain has like erased so much of that particular year in sierra leone. That's what she needs. That's that's what human beings and for many years. I was always. I wasn't empathetic to people's trauma and they didn't realize how being traumatized as a child. Yes that one of the coping mechanism is you want to leave all of its great so there is general who are who left during the war and completely said like blocked out sierra leone completely assimilated really really well as a coping mechanism but on the outside when you look at them and like the accent affectation really trying. Can you carry you as you think that they just are not proud. And that's all you see but you never about these. People are responding trauma and.

The Line 5 pipeline: A disaster waiting to happen, or necessary to avoid an energy crisis?

"First one that comes to mind. I'm gonna guess that you went with one of maybe three. The trans mountain pipeline which our federal government purchased a couple of years ago the keystone excel pipeline. Which is actually a pipeline. Because it didn't get built or maybe the end bridge line just because it's by far the largest of all the crude oil and natural gas pipelines. That run through this country. But i'm gonna guess that none of you zero named line five. I would be shocked. Many of you even knew that it existed. I sure didn't even though it has been running from alberta to sarnia ontario for more than sixty years line. Five is an offshoot of that main and bridge line and its distinguishing feature over. The decades is that it runs through a narrow strait between lake michigan and lake here. It's distinguishing feature right. Now is much the same only. It's the danger that it might pose to those two lakes and their shorelines and the legal fight over whether or not to shut it down as well as the massive economic cost. That would come with doing that. In short for more than half a century line five has moved more than half a million barrels of natural gas and crude every day and nothing bad has happened yet so the question is are we pushing our luck. What would happen if something bad did happen. How catastrophic could it be and is it as some governments would argue worth the risk to keep all that fuel flowing.

theme of the party was anonymous sex I mean that let's say that that's not clever at all no that's just like you just invited strangers yeah that's not a theme that's just like an instruction manual well if your theme the if you're orgy famous anonymous sacks what could go wrong everything basically because because you don't know they're showing and you don't know where I am in fact that's exactly what happened so of these twenty gaster so name some stuff went down there rescind you know happy times you know what is the best of times it was the worst there was some I guess frolicking in

that's Ernie they stole a gun deer yeah wow so it turns out that they had left a gun got into an orgy the gun out of the origin of the homeowners rangy is they had their guns stored and they're really ticked off that somebody stole their gun he's pointed out rightly so I think well you had a the film was anonymous sex and a bunch of strangers over also guest were encouraged to utilize fictitious

came to the what had gone down she was bloodied and she looked as though she had been hurt in the process she explains the police that her neighbor had broken down the door and punched and scratched her and they and the police witness she had black eyes and scratches on her arms and legs and sure it had read scenes on it and she also had shared with officers that the assault had caused her to get these black eyes and also for her nose to believe and the officers found blood in the kitchen and the living room and the bathroom they found a coffee table out of place they found a broken play and it looks like a place where somebody had come in in a rough somebody up but after the looks a little bit closer at the blood that that that was in the home and they thought that does not look like blood and then as they search the home further they found it to be a vampire blood god and then a second look they realize that the black guys that miss Benoit had were not actually black eyes but rather eye shadow she had it completely fabricated the idea that her neighbor had roughed her up and so now she's facing charges of giving a false police report and falsifying physical evidence okay also how did she think she was getting away with vast even like case check you out no no don't touch me this is a case of not playing the tape all the way through yeah exactly don't do it if you're

When I started to get the comedy thing going and started to have a met momentum of its own because I think there is like kind of an egalitarian side the comedy like really anybody can go anywhere and put their name. And I think I always felt music was more gatekeepers at the beginning. But I should probably just my own imaging again. No, I think you're probably right. Well, what with with with comedy?
