House Democrats Propose New Tax Hikes to Pay for Their $3.5 Trillion Bill
"In congress are moving ahead with president biden spending plan. It includes up to three point. Five trillion dollars for new programs mostly aimed at helping lower income americans. They plan to finish work today on a long list of new tax increases to make that spending possible. Npr congressional correspondent kelsey. Snell has been looking into this story. Good morning kelsey. good morning. What are democrats proposing re taxes. So democrats say they can raise at least two trillion dollars in as much as three trillion dollars with this plan. You know the big ticket items are increases to the top corporate and individual rates. You know basically they're trying to roll back. The tax cuts republicans passed under president trump. In two thousand seventeen okay. Let's parse those two out. What would this mean for taxes on individuals on the individual side. Democrats promised voters that they'd undo taxes for the wealthy and this is really their moment to do that. They want to return the top tax rate to thirty nine point six for individuals. Earning over four hundred thousand dollars. They also want to increase the rate high income. People pay for selling things like stocks and other assets. It's called the capital gains rate. And they wanna make the top rate for that twenty five percent which is a pretty big hike and what would it mean for businesses. Their plan would increase the top corporate tax rate from twenty one percent to twenty six and a half percent. Now that is not a full reversal of the tax cuts. Republicans passed and it's lower than what biden proposed they also plan to include changes to the rules for pass through businesses. Now sometimes that includes doctors and lawyers but it basically means that someone reports business income on their individual taxes and they wanna make it harder for companies to avoid the new higher taxes. How are republicans responding to these proposals while republicans say that the bill will actually have some pretty harmful effects on the economy. Mostly by making the us an unattractive place to run a company and they say it would penalize companies. That would normally use the money. They'd have to pay in new taxes to reinvest in their

"Slash 401k. House speaker. nancy pelosi yesterday kept her democratic caucus together to advance. The party's three point five trillion dollar budget framework. But the hard work of deciding. What exactly will be in that budget. Bill remains ahead pelosi herself not at at some of the future challenges. This legislation will be the biggest and perhaps most controversial initiatives that any of us have ever undertaken in our official lives before members of the house left town. They also passed voting rights legislation named after the late. Congressman john lewis. Npr congressional correspondent. Kelsey snell is here. good morning. good morning so kelsey. We spoke yesterday and democrats. Were stuck with moderates refusing to go along with speaker. Nancy pelosi's plan to advance these bills. How did she get this massive budget framework to move forward. We'll pull up has been seeing since june that there would be. No vote on the bipartisan infrastructure. Bill until the senate passed a separate three and a half trillion dollar partisan spending package so centrists were willing unwilling to sign onto that and they successfully lobbied to get a specific date. September twenty seventh as the official date that they will get a vote on the bipartisan bill. Regardless of what happens with that partisan bill now that is a victory for them in the sense that they were able to separate the two issues and give themselves an opportunity to you know have a test to vote on infrastructure if democrats are not able to come together on that very complicated process of writing

They're running a two man rotation out there at this exact moment. This is a team that is not going to win going forward and i think the trade deadline only hurt the chemistry of that team yesterday. They fired their pitching coach. Larry rothschild at the end of the day. Larry rothschild did not get their pitchers hurt. The pitchers hurt and that. And now you got a team that is absolutely looking devastatingly bad and they're about to go into a series of the los angeles dodgers.

House Impasse Threatens to Derail a Part of Biden's Domestic Agenda
"House. Democrats try again to pass a budget framework. Today it's three point five trillion dollars. It contains within its provisions a large part of president. Biden's agenda and it is a special bill because under the rules. It is one of the few bills the democrats can get through the senate without any republican support. Trouble is the democrats face a divide among themselves in the house. Npr congressional correspondent kelsey. Snell has been covering the story kelsey. Good morning good morning. I had assumed the problem would be in the senate that would easily pass the house where the majority party is usually pretty unified. What happened instead. Well the democrats in the house really just have a very slim majority and some moderates have taken advantage of that that moment to try to get some concessions from house speaker. Nancy pelosi basically. She is trying to satisfy demands from two very different wings of her party. Progressives want to get moving on that three and a half trillion dollar budget framework because it could help them pass a lot of their major priorities. Like you mentioned things like addressing. Climate change are paid family. Leave or child care programs but the moderate wing was pushing for an immediate vote on the senate passed one. Trillion dollar bipartisan infrastructure. Bill they say that those priorities just need to move forward now. They can't wait for further negotiations on this bigger budget framework so pelosi's strategy since june has been detained the fate of both of these things together. She's essentially saying that. You know the infrastructure bill and the budget bill have to move together or nothing moves at all as you mentioned. They reached an impasse and after a lot of haggling arguing. They kinda came around this idea that they would use a procedural work around to pass the budget resolution without ever having to actually vote on it just on the idea of moving it forward that might sound crazy but it isn't unprecedented and it's within the rules and it would allow the house and senate to actually get to work writing the spending plan because right now. They haven't even done that part yet. This is just conceptual

"Communist. No mr green. Communism is just a red herring like all members of the oldest profession. I'm a capitalist. Hello and welcome to muller she road. I'm your host g you can call me alison gill now. Though i don't work for the government so after hatch act. I was smashing the crotch act. But i don't have to anymore. I'm coming to you from a hotel on the road. So it's a little bit echo. In here i apologize for that. I have a couple of stories for you but then i wanted to play a couple of interviews. I had earlier this week. You probably may have already heard them if you haven't. I really want you to listen to them. That's why i'm dropping him in this show as well. I talked to alexander vitamin absolute hero. And we talk a lot about How what we saw during the first impeachment is connected to the second impeachment and cove it and you know. He just draws these incredible through lines through everything the entirety of the conspiracy. And it's it's really good. And then i also talked tristan snell this week. Who is a reporter. Who who has a lot of inside information on what's going on with men in the matt gaetz world so he's gonna be our sabotage today because i'll come back and i'll do my pick for the fantasy indictment league or maybe i'll do the picks before we listened to the interview. See you have them going into their. But anyway it's it's going to be a really good show with some incredible interviews. But i do have some news. So let's jump in with just the facts all right first up as it turns out that house democrats. The oversight committee can get some of trump's tax records from maziarz which is his accounting firm. This has been going on as you know for. Probably since the kitchen days it's been going on for so long the. Us house should be able to access some donald. Trump's tax returns through that subpoena touma czars and this is according to a federal judge in dc. And this was ruling on wednesday. It's a resounding loss for trump given that the accounting records appear to cover financial information that the former president has fiercely protected and it's a major step toward resolving the long running fight over access to trump's tax records and don't confuse this with the house ways and means fight because if you remember going back to the miller she wrote days we had a bunch of stuff going up through the courts. We had a subpoena from house. Oversight czars for trump's taxes and accounting papers. But we also had a subpoena by the house ways and from the house ways and means committee and the house ways and means committee is the one that shall furnish the taxes when we talk about that one hundred year old law that says when they ask they the. Irs shall furnish the taxes. and so. that's not this right so when you know people are kinda conflating the two. I've seen a lot of people. Say why are they only given part of these taxes over to the house oversight committee they. It's the law says that they shall phantom over. That's no no. That's not this this day actually legislative purpose here and the judges sort of split split down the middle right. They say hey. You can have some tax returns but you can't have eight years worth okay. You're doing oversight. When he was president you wanna do oversight of his emoluments and his dc hotel. Dc international hotel in downtown dc. Okay cool you can have. The tax returns the pertain to those years. Twenty seventeen two thousand. Eighteen can't have anything from before he was president but this is a huge win constitutionally speaking and of course trump has already filed to appeal this decision. It it's gonna take more time. And i know people are upset but i have to again like i said when we went through this with mazari's and the ways and means committee. It doesn't really. This is for oversight purposes. Long-haul long-term oversight purposes is in a criminal investigation into his taxes. The manhattan district attorney has his taxes. The doj has his taxes. Like we have to. You know we're not waiting to prosecute him based on this makes sense. So they'll be like oh. He's never going to be held accountable. These particular subpoenas from bazaars from house oversight in house ways and means isn't to hold him accountable right make sense to get the truth out. I mean we can't impeach him anymore we could you can but you know the senate won't convict. That's why they didn't convict him on. The second impeachment was because you can't they said we don't believe you can impeach and convict a person. Who isn't the president anymore you can. That was their excuse not to but anyway with the case. Let me read here from cnn. The cases a continuation of the house tax returns case that traveled up to the supreme court. Now district judge summit meta has weighed in the house For the house request trump's financial records against the standards laid up supreme court in its seven two ruling last year without supreme court. Opinion in mind met upheld parts of the house. Subpoena that were targeted at the lawmakers stated need for considering legislation and and Around four emoluments clause issues and the gsa lease at the trump hotel in the old post office building. The committee can also access some financial documents from two thousand seventeen twenty eighteen.

She has her show on fire island in new york. So you're in the neighborhood. Go check that out. You know there is a headline in here. That i'm probably not gonna go into depth on too much. But trump has appealed the house oversight committee ruling for years now. We had two things trying to get his taxes right. We had the ms ours. I should say the maziarz documents we had the house. Oversight committee subpoenaed them and then we had the house ways and means committee that subpoenaed them the house ways and means committee is the one where the law says that the irs shall furnish. That's just for the house ways and means committee that is not the law for the oversight committee and so the judge. Recently as we know yesterday decided they could have trump's maziarz documents related to his dc downtown hotel and potential emoluments but only while he was in office and as we expected. Trump has appealed that ruling so that will probably go up to the next level. We will see although amy barrett today decided that the supreme court was not going to hear the indiana university vaccine case brought by that guy who brought citizens united member. How we were worried about that. So you know. I guess a we shred of understanding the actual law presented by. Amy conybeare it today. So indiana university will be allowed to mandate vaccines. That's a big decision going forward in. I as i'm sure we would have seen and we'll see probably future cases but now we have a little bit of precedent on that. Although it doesn't really set precedent to not hear a case you know you know what. I'm saying you know what i mean anyway. We have a lot.
Senate Set for Final Vote on $1 Trillion Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill
"President Biden of Victory, Senators are expected to give that roughly $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure plan a final vote today and send it to the House. After that. The Senate is expected to begin working on that larger $3.5 trillion companion bill that Democrats want to pass without Republican support later this fall. Here's NPR's Kelsey Snell. The idea is that once they vote on this $3.5 trillion frame, more committees will get to work, writing legislation to spend money and meet the goals. That President Biden sat out and they want it done by September 15th. And they're using that pretty familiar process of budget reconciliation that we've been talking about for some time now. Basically, they're using the budget process, um to pass spending a deficit related programs without the threat of a Republican filibuster, assuming all the Democrats in the Senate agree $3.5 trillion bill includes Democratic priorities, ranging from child care and family leave to climate change.

"Will recognize because that's christopher steele joint. It is okay now. It's a risk consultancy. That's what it says. know what. Now what does that mean exactly show. So what we do. Where in a i guess. A relatively selective obscure corner of the professional services were a particularly in europe. Uk western economies. There are plenty of people who are paid to advise businesses on. What they're doing. You might pay a lawyer to advise you on your legal issues. You might band accountant to visor on your financial tax compliance especially is advised people on political and regulatory risk so that sounds a bit kind of obscure but what i mean is if a big international company has made an investment in an emerging market somewhere in africa for example there are going to be all kinds of risks that i'm not easy to get a handle on. So let's say you're a mining business while it's the minister of industry of minerals in that country notoriously corrupt answer. This next speculation that you'll business will be paying some kind of backhander. All is there a risk of sanctions. You know these days sanctions are a very significant issue that you might be a completely legitimate and compliant business upgrading to the highest standards. But something that you are involved with has a co ownership with. Let's say a russian business. The you have no control daiva that has been sanctioned for its involvement in the war in ukraine so as a kind of consultancy business intelligence consultancy what we specialize in doing helping people understand the risk to their business and sometimes we come after a problem is erupted and we help people find out what has gone wrong so we we we have people around the place you know people like myself who worked in different countries that good networks that we can pick up the phone we can go and meet people you can kind of get a little understanding under the surface of some of the challenges that people face has been booming since The dossier came out or you know is a big question. I think so i mean. Obviously that the reason that otis is has become better known than it was you know. Five years ago is because a project that we took which which commercially was not very important to business turned out to be politically very important and this was a project to look at the russian connections all the person who eventually became president donald trump at the time he was just a candidate and i reiterate violas listeners. That a couple of things which Up maybe obvious but but have been sometimes misunderstood that we took this project on back back in the day. I twenty fifteen twenty sixteen originally At a time when donald trump was one of a very wide field of republican candidates that right at the beginning of this price says the people who wanted to understand about trump's links to russia were actually other republicans obey at that then transferred onto the clinton campaign and that we did this work from the completely nonpartisan perspective so a lot of people are targeted. My colleague chris steele and assumed that he is. Somehow i kind of operative in the us political system. Nothing could be further from the truth. Crystal is a british guy. He's never lived in america. He you know. By definition he has no way to vote in america and we approached this project like any other kind of professional project that our ability to extract and identify kind of interesting information that might not be available to others and give that to our clients. That's what we bring to the table so we were doing that just as we would with any other project. We are not trying to kind of shea the issue now i. I'm the the. I accept that there are literally millions of people in america who would just reject. Absolutely what i just said. I would assume unfortunately because of the kind of political situation that where part of some kind of you know corrupt this information project but coming back to your question greg. Has it helped or hindered up business. I think what it's Is it has put us in a certain place. We didn't choose to be in that place. You know like. I say we. We never chose to take sides in us politics. But having said that i think that Two things kind of came out of that dossier project. One was that in spite of an incredible effort by trump and his supporters. To discredit christie's work and the workable business intelligence the fundamental findings from the dossier the the circle trump dossier have actually been blown out. And let's just quickly go through those. So the first thing was that the russians were interfering in the two thousand. Sixteen election does no debate about leading. Nobody's now absolutely has been demonstrated including the senate intelligence. The republican led senate intelligence. Could second point was that it was putin was directing now and again that the inquiry the senate intelligence committee to so much evidence for that holiday but back in two thousand sixteen. No one you this right. The third thing is that this intervention is interference directed by putin was being done to promote the candidacy of donald trump again. This is now absolutely beyond any question. It has been demonstrated by a wide array of subsequent investigations but in two thousand sixteen. Nobody knew this possibly one or two people deep inside the us intelligence community but that nobody in the public wealth new this and then a false thing. Which i think is the key. The full key findings was that elements of the trump campaign actively colluding cooperating whatever term art. We might use with those efforts. So let's just take the very very straightforward example manifold pullman info was in direct connection with constantine kalinic who has been clearly demonstrated to russian intelligence operative. Now i love. Your listeners will be completely on board with these things. You know no debate about it. But it's important to restate that because i think there has been as an extraordinary effort to try to discredit this work to suggest that somehow what visted was itself a brush. Disinformation appraising was completely untrue Whereas what i would say is back. Two thousand sixteen. If we could get an a time machine go back there and we would be told the full facts. You know you'd fall off your chair. You wouldn't believe it was possible and it's only you know what's happened since then has has changed the way you look at these things so the effect it's had on our business eight has had an effect of of kind of being split into this partisan divide but i think that's that's actually the way america is now. I didn't say that with any sugar. I have no problem with the republican party. I personally i'm probably on the liberal side of politics but it doesn't matter to me You know. I didn't when we as a business cooperate with clients. We don't awesome about political leanings. But i think what's happened. Is that you know. This kind of division has paid the final point Make is that. It does seem to me that the mainstream of the us business community has has kind of tried to distance itself from trump particularly after the events of the six january. So i'm not sure that it's a bad thing that we We have been seen very negatively by kind of very strong trump partisans. Not that something. We chose On behalf of freedom loving patriotic americans. I hit my hat to you guys. And i hope that your your partner there Stay safe. this is important work and we're grateful for it. I mean we those of us who were trying to figure out what was happening from relatively early period of time relied on that extensively and as you say It bore out. I think one of the problems of the media made obviously the the. We call the dossier. It's a series of of intelligence reports which were never meant to be made public in the where exactly and we can argue until the cows come home about whether or not that was a good idea to reveal this entire thing in its entirety but the mainstream media. You know you put a sally or You know lascivious detailer detail on the. I think it's the first the first or the second page of the documents that's all. They're going to pay attention to. They've got their story. It's over after that they're not gonna keep reading which is You know that's the sad state of the mainstream media in in this country which the line between news and entertainment is is just completely blurred but As i said we're we..

"We have no way to change that situation. I mean we literally throwing trillions of dollars at the problem we have lost thousands of brave soldiers in stabilization and other operations way we have we have tried every type of development a humanitarian aid. All these. I'm not saying that. We should just walk away and let the placing. But i think we have to recognize that the attempt to create a liberal democracy based on western values is not going to succeed. Maybe it might happen in fifty hundred years identity. But he's not gonna six eight now and we have to recognize that an if i think back just to sort of finish here i think i was in afghanistan roughly ten years after nine eleven. So twenty. Ten twenty eleven. We were still talking about how securing afghanistan was about securing london. New york washington d. c. And that was actually notre securing. The big cities of the west was something that happened in two thousand one in in a very limited on very successful series of special operations. The years that followed was Was a series of displacement activities. That ultimately have not produced an outcome that you know that is that is useful to western countries. Hopefully we learned the lesson but we never seem to learn seem to learn very well. Because you know whilst iraq funded afghanistan but the thing that to me is is very striking in in twenty eleven at a point when surely these lessons could have been learned You know we piled into libya and now liberia's in a state of kale effectively split into two kind of statelets all of the things. That should have been obvious from that. The situation in iraq and the situation. I've kinda stoned a play. I'm not saying they're identical but same lessons appear to be relevant from situation in libya and yet the same mistakes stakes remained. I've been thinking a lot lately about the first gulf war. Because at that time i was a i was a senior in high school and i just turned eighteen and everyone was like. Oh we're going to get drafted. And i mean that obviously didn't happen but so i wasn't really equipped. I think to look at it from a geopolitical sense. But now i think especially now looking at at the situation in iraq and afghanistan and these wars that never seemed to end and also with putin in the crimea. Go to rain. What happened in the first gulf war was that saddam hussein invaded a foreign country in kuwait. Mostly to because he didn't want to pay them the money hero them and nato who was the allied coalition that george h w bush form together. Said you're not allowed to do that. We went in sent him back to iraq and that was it and then that ended his territorial ambitions. He was still there. Which was sucked if you lived in iraq. I'm sure but on the other hand when you get rid of the guy. We see now what what happened. So it's it's it's really a damned if you do damned if you don't i mean none of the options are pretty agree. We had no business going to iraq. Anyway i think i think that bush's guys just wanted to do it and for some reason. Take him out but there was a lot of talk at the time because the borders in the middle east anywhere drawn up after the first world war. They're not really Whatever like mozell has more in common with damascus than it does with iraq. There's there there was some talk of. Let's that iraq really should be three different countries. Stand at the north. And this and that do you think that was. I didn't do it because i think because turkey. Mostly what do you think is the solution. They're ultimately does that. Make any sense things can happen. Well i think. I think you've touched on on a range of very important points and you know. I spent a lot of my career in in the kind of middle east region. I'm actually an arabic speaker. So i sort of that helped me integrate myself. With with that part of the world there is an issue about Kind of. I don't wanna say fake borders because you know that real to the people that live that but but but countries that maybe lack of certain level of kind of integrity in the minds of the people that live there but having said that something that struck me particularly of my time working raw. Is how nationalist a lot of iraqis. They they feel very strongly. But you know it may only be a country that's existed for society is roughly but people feel quite strongly that this is a real country. I'm we feel about it. So i think i think they. You know you're mentioning that the first gulf war the ninety one gulf for is very important. Because i think that was literally the high point of the kind of the western atlantic alliance when it won the code wall. It then proves that it could. It could destroy what was supposedly a sierras army. Maybe not russia but it was his army at it destroyed them in about three hours. It was a cakewalk. And it's almost as if that was the problem that the ease of that victory allowed a kind of level of hubris misunderstanding. And i'm not just talking about america across western countries And i think it led to two things one was that the western countries became increasingly distracted by substate challenges so obviously one of those terrorism and and it is not iced identity this in any way to suggest that the problem with terrorism was was trivial because by definition what happened at the nine eleven attacks was was nothing bad. You know nothing but epic. It was an incredible and all full attack on on america's soil. It bugs in times of loss of life but in terms of the you know the violation of american survey but i think the countries in the western alliance and america particularly failed to keep an eye on why issues that mattered and so during the period that america britain to some extent you know australia from a range of kind of nato western allies. Were getting stuck with these kind of endless counterinsurgency struggles and ultimately not winning. We were not winning those fights probably because we didn't know what the end state was. We didn't know what we wanted to win. But while that was going on. Russia and china in particular were learning lessons. They're looking at how we failed. They were looking at the weaknesses of their own. their military's let's not forget that the iraqi military was very very close to russia. It had a kind of soviet Kind of concession conception of operations and the china also had various links to the sort of the old players in the middle east so you a lot of them were that was going on in russia and china looking at the west struggles and thinking what we learned from this. You know what are the weaknesses. What are the kind of strategic gains. That might come out of this and so while we were kind of battling these sort of ankle level problems which ally you know again. I'm not trivializing. But they were issues. There are not strategic existentialist threat to our country's you had to global pows slowly building up and russia. You could argue. Twenty four team. Was that moment when they struck you know they took crimea and they took it in a way that was was that was basically a brilliant special forces operation people one sure is this an invasion or is it some kind of weird political demonstration but at the end of the day. Crimea is not controlled by russia. They built a bridge onto mainland russia. You know who knows how that ends but right now. Ukraine has no serious means of regaining that territory. At the same time. China china recognizes weaknesses in terms of its navy and has created a blue water navy so fast time basically.

"To stay out of the uk and this is very significant. This would have been the end of the country that exists as britain that has existed since the beginning of the seventeen hundreds. You know so. So so the import of that referendum we. We shouldn't underestimate now. When it came to brexit the queen didn't say anything and as you rightly all's greg you know it should. She have made some kind of observation statement now. Part of the thing is it's not. I don't have a clear idea of where ha views would have sat on this question. That was my house.

The english speaking world goes to the. Us canada. australia. There is a sense in which people from the british elite have traditionally seen themselves as separate from europe and when the queen was a young queen you know she was right close to president kennedy. She was close to prime minister trudeau of canada. So it may be when she looks at the people who influenced her in her early stage of her life. She doesn't think about continental europe. I'd genuinely don't know the answer. I know that she speaks french while i know that. Her husband prince philip. He was a true european. Boone german greek. He had danish heritage. You know it. It's very hard to know an and one of the things that is very sad about the recent time in british politics is. The question has become very very toxic so if there was any hint that the queen sat on one side or the other of this debate it was negative is located. In a way that is it would be terribly disruptive brexit could be i mean could be the death-knell of certainly the british empire of great britain. Has this big superpower. We don't know what's going to happen. But you mentioned the sky forgot about the scottish referendum and and. Yeah her coming saying so they're going to not about brexit suggests to me that she she kind of preferred to leave but now maybe scotland leaves to join the you know. Yeah it could. That could happen. It could well happen. And you're one hundred percent thanks. Brexit rodriguez ultimately the deal. That scotland had at and it seems so mad now because you know the the timing was not was was not very distant but back in the time that the scottish were voting to remain part of the uk the prospect of the uk leaving the you felt very distant. It did not seem like a serious idea. And scotland's view was we are better off with the uk in the eu context. The the deal is completely different. Now if you'll scotland now it feels like a very different proposition right. I i know it has a lot to do with fisheries and stuff like that so we we don't need get into the fisheries i assume. Please let's not so. I've done since i started writing about trump and covering the stuff and and also since i started doing this podcast which is a later iteration of my work. I've learned a lot about russia and money laundering. And all this kind of stuff. So first of all. Brexit is a russian up i think the brexit op in the trump up at the same thing i think putin was trying to destabilize. Basically western europe by taking it to the two leaders of western of of nato basically. So i'm seeing a lot. There's a lot of russian money pouring into the city of london. People were calling london grad. Yom one of the big wealthy guards owns. What is it the chelsea football team. There's a lot of russian money there. How big of a threat. And also there's there's russian nationals coming to the uk k. And killing people in sovereign british territory. Which yes that's that's kind of a rubicon line that putin out it'll be it ought to be. Yeah how big a threat in your view is putin to the uk. I think is a huge threat. And i think if you think about twenty sixteen may have been putin's best yet because he had two huge ethic kind of olympic gold medal successes eight. He won the brexit election. And then actually you know. I don't i would never as bread make any assumptions about the influence of my country on a much bigger country. Usa but it is certainly true that donald trump talked a lot about brexit as a kind of case. Study about the improbable. Kind of populist nationalist. Message that that you don't let anyone tell you that people like us come win and it put a kinda fire into you know into the bellies of some of the people around trump surf. You'll putin twenty sixteen wasn't incredible year. You got the brexit vote and you go. You'll man in the white house now in terms of the specifics of what was going on in the uk in terms of russian implements.
"snell" Discussed on The Daily Beans
"Snow. Welcome to prevail. Thank you thanks for having me. I'm very excited to talk to you because you've had such an interesting career but we're going to get to that in a minute. What i what. I want to start the interview. Doing stuff is happening across the pond in great britain. That americans like me. Don't quite grasp. And i'm hoping that you can just be clear up some things and talk to me. As if i'm a complete moron who knows nothing and explain some things. I'll i'll do my best but it's always British people always make the mistake of assuming that americans are morons. And of course you'll the guys who put a man on the moon. So did we did. We did that. And i think we invented the internet and reality of the things a few other things we invented reality. Tv we get demerits for that okay. The first the first question of offs prime minister's okay. So going back to the seventy s most british prime ministers have been conservative. Only tony blair and gordon brown being labor. So okay. so there's margaret thatcher. John major david cameron theresa may and now moore's johnson so what i'm curious about is how various british prime ministers are perceived both in general among the population. And by. you personally us right. Yeah that's a great question. I think it's probably a bit light. Us president of course. We don't have time limits. So if a prime minister's good at winning elections i can go on forever but you kind of have the big league and the little league and just as you know. Ronald reagan is is a huge figure in the nineteen eighties in us politics. Whatever side of the oil. You might be. Margaret thatcher is very obviously for us in the uk kind of equivalent figure. Now she's a very different character clearly. She didn't come from that kind of entertainment. You know she wasn't. She wasn't a popular figure. She didn't have a particularly kind of a pleasant mina with the ordinary folk but she was a big figure bestride adding the cold war era in one thousand nine hundred eighty s and then you had perhaps the next big figure in. us politics was obviously bill clinton. We had tiny black. That were. they weren't exactly at the same time. They raised similar in this in the respect that they were from the left but people who moved the left party into the centre ground. Highly electorally unsuccessful. I mean tony blair in particular. I didn't think was capable of losing election. He was kind of like bill clinton without the sex scandals. He had a phenomenal connection with the public. He he knew how to kind of capture the politics of aspiration but combine that with kind of social conscience with broadening social programs. And so on. And of course. Tony blair's achilles heel walls the war in iraq and again That that links the us and the uk is politics because tiny bad felt and i think he felt this particularly as a left-wing prime minister in the uk that he had to stand very close to a republican president in the us particularly in the context of a national security crisis as you saw in the light of nine eleven so if it had not been for the war in iraq and the kind of disastrous unfolding of that teddy by might still be prime minister. Now i mean seriously he he was somebody who consistently showed an ability to understand what the people wanted. And how the kind of position kind of centigram politics so we can blame. George w bush for tony blair. Not being prime minister rate okay. I'm going to the other stuff. And i think it's probably fair to say that since blair We've had a series of slightly kind of second tier leaders. you know. that's where pops up paul's diverge the country. We've never had somebody like president obama who came from a minority community and came to national leadership. David cameron very privileged again. He was kind of black for the for the conservatives of gop equivalent. He tried to pull that party to the center but ultimately his his leadership exploded over. The your question. Theresa may golden brown very short Periods at the top and now have timpson britain trump. It's it's not just the hairstyle he has. He seen quite a lot across the pond which he likes politically which is interesting. Because a lot of people particularly people on the liberal side of politics whether in the us or the uk look voter suppression. They look at culture walls. They look at you. Know intimidation of the judiciary and i wouldn't want that in our politics but british conservatives a looking across the poem to north america saying those things zang out does something we can learn from this. And and that's that's kind of where we are in twenty twenty one in british politics. So boris johnson is apparently good friends with this russian. Oligarch owns. I think the london evening standard and he's got the palazzo and the umbrian hills of italy and he used to go there back in his days when he was a bachelor and kind of enjoy himself at parties. So there's a lot of speculation that the russians have something on this guy. So i was gonna ask you what feels like to have a leader compromised by russia but Being an american. I already know you've been there and done that. I mean the thing is gone. You've always bigger and better now. He just got married right. Johnson did so he did. I've seen her name before it's kerry symon. How does he has a pronounced. Simmons carry simmons but she she. Has i think very publicly taken. Her husband's name so she's now mris carrie johnson. So what where does she fit into all this like she left wing person because she's rattling environmentalist. Or is she. I'm having problems figuring that out. Yes so what one thing where the the the right wing in british politics has diverged from the. Us is that on the climate change question. Most british conservatives are in the kind of scientific mainstream so the paris accords. Very few people in britain would question the need to sign up to that the whole thing that we might see this week. We're talking mid june now into the g. seven the push towards net zero major water. Connie's moving away from hydrocarbons. All that has been adopted by our conservative party. Are right wing political party. So mrs carrie. Johnson than the new wife. The third wife of prime minister She. she's an environmentalist but as a as a political activist she's been involved with the conservative party her entire adult life. She still i think in her thirty. She's relatively young woman. So in that regard. She's not outside the mainstream of the conservative movement in british politics. And and i think there is something in british conservatism which is quite tied to the land. You as you know. We're we're an old country. We have these rich families who've owned property centuries through the generations. So i think that the degree to which some parts of environmentalism in britain fit quite easily with a kind of conservative idea of stewardship of the land and this kind of historic resonances. We used to have that here too with with the republicans have been teddy. Roosevelt was Conservationists and somehow that fell away and now they just want to burn as much oil as possible and burnt down. I guess i. I don't know i don't really i don't really understand Oh i didn't. I didn't even write this down but not talking about it. I forgot what's the deal with this. Nigel farage guy. He's people know that he's a joke or people. Follow the sky because he seems like a big fraudster to me. I know he's i mean. He's a very intriguing so thoroughly he was outside the conservative party but he was like the populist right-wing flank to the right of of the mainstream tories. And i i don't know you know the us equivalent might be character has light. Ross perot or people like that who ran to the right of the republicans. I guess over time the the republicans you know don't trump. Was your candidate in the republican party. So in that sense the republican party successfully kinda brought people in now. niger firearm. his big thing was getting the uk out of europe and very much. I wanna say out of europe out of the european union rod very much driven by an agenda. That was very hostile to immigration also to multiculturalism. And it kind of white nationalist agenda. Which which will be familiar in the us as well but he was. He always sat outside the tory party now. Once brexit happened once the uk left the european union which happened.
The Disappearance of Kim Ghelkins and Her Ties to Pee Wee Gaskins
"It didn't take long to zero in on gaskins as a suspect. Investigators were aggressive pounding the pavement looking for leads. That's when they met the mother of dennis. Bellamy diane bellamy and johnny nights. She reported her three children or also missing Mrs night brought the story to ahead. Marianne griffin began it permission. I gave information. That people in the neighborhood are all missing. They would also learn jesse. Judy and johnny sellers were missing and the common denominator in these missing persons. Was pee wee gaskins when they arrived at his home peewee. Wasn't there but the detectives did me sandy. The donna gaskins. It was the ex wife. Sandy who gave the detectives the lead they were looking for. Sandy snell gaskins told the police that peewee and cam often in prospect. Knowing kim was last seen with pee wee gaskins police quickly obtained a search warrant for pee-wee's trailer ninety miles away in prospect. It was there. They found clothing. That belonged to kim calkins. They also found a stolen car on his lot and he was arrested that same day for auto theft and contributing to the delinquency of a minor took her out across county allows. It was a minor charge as far as compared to murder was certainly series and have to put him back in jail still. There was no sign of kim calkins who had been missing for nearly sixty days. Police detectives tracked down walter. Neely pee-wee's close friend and applied pressure. Walter buckled but. He had no idea where kim was. He didn't know we had taken her to stay with his daughter. Shirley and gaskins and her husband howard evans. Police knew she wasn't there anymore. Shirley ann thought camp had gone to indiana where she had some family. So police were in a bind. Walter had taken them to pee wee's burial grounds and they were knee deep in digging up bodies but still no word on kim calkins dead or live.
Phil Mickelson Won't Return to Detroit Tournament After $500K Gambling Report
"Mickelson man. Where do we even begin with this. Basically on tuesday just to get you quickly. Caught up on tuesday the detroit news not to be confused with the detroit. Free press so the second largest News source in the city of detroit released an article that you know basically tied it retold this story of mickelson making a large bet in nineteen ninety nine He and a couple friends were owed five hundred thousand dollars after winning a bet with the local sketchy bookie guy with mob ties and that guy never paid up so it was a story of of phil gambling and winning but not getting paid and you know being connected to some unsavory characters so it was intriguing it. It was in the news because these records had gotten unsealed. Recently in in the last. Few weeks So this guy named robert snell wrote an article about it. Not something that really probably would have even popped up on the national radar. It was behind a paywall The detroit news. From what i can tell has about a subscription size of like one hundred thousand And you know it's it's also not like there's any pre existing beef between phil and robert snell. He's a court reporter like sometimes you'll see tiger doesn't like so and so or you know someone doesn't like what a golf writer is written about them so there's some pre existing beef there that can't be the case here. I'm sure that they have no connection. So anyway Phil came out and essentially said he repudiated the article. He didn't say that it was incorrect. In fact his lawyer basically made it clear that everything in the article was correct but he just went pretty hard at this guy said that based off this article he was not going to return to detroit
NFL Bans Dwight Schar From Future Ownership Interest in Any NFL Team
"Minority owners coming in at some point, but he is the he is the sole owner after buying back the minority shares from Dwight Schar, Fred Smith and Bob Rothman. And what was a very contentious uh, I think And this is that I don't know if it's been publicly put out like this, But I think it was a takeover attempt by the minority owners who were looking for a greater evaluation on on their sale of their minority piece, and all of this negativity started to pop up. In the Washington Post started to pop up and and social media. These accusations were thrown out there, all of which, incidentally, Dan Snyder has claimed responsibility for even though he was not directly implicated in any of those things. Um, And the news today is twofold. One that Daniel Snyder is it was fined $10 million. At least the Washington football team was fined $10 million. The clarity on that is that $10 million will go to charities, which which Tania, his wife and Dan will choose. So it's a $10 million fine, but it'll all go to an important cause. The other thing. That I think is not insignificant in this is that Dang Dwight Schar, who was one of those minority owners, and a lot of people believed was involved in the smear campaign on on Daniel Snyder has been banned for life. From the NFL. So, uh, while we while we want to vilified, um some of the things that went on inside the Washington organization, the the campaign It was put out to embarrass and try to force. Mr Snyder to Snell also came to light and again, I'll read it, I'll say it again. Dwight Schar, who was a minority owner, has been banned for life from the National Football League. Take that of what you will. Um, but that's not the story. So a lot of people there's some misconceptions out
Selling Your Business Is Simpler Than You Think
"Allegedly. Welcome to the podcast. Thank you mike. I'm happy to be europe. It's great to finally get to talk to you types. You all this hype here. And he remember we've talked quite a bit through email and also in the webinars but this is the first one. I think i've heard your voice. Oh okay actually met once and dewey. Yeah where was that are we. Sarah scott volkers. He had a couple years ago. You forgot it was like brand accelerator live. That was a great event. And i apologize. I mean i end up back in the days. When we had events i would meet to three hundred people you know at one time. It's hard to keep everybody straight and so correct. But i'm glad that we got a chance to to meet then and now i've done the know your snell if we met i would really remember you. You've been an awesome addition to the community and it's cool. I think that whenever we start a business we don't think about necessarily like. I want to sell it one day but ultimately i guess that is the goal at the end the day. If you really think about it you don't start it to just eventually folded or close it or give up on any of those things. I think the ultimate goal is to sell it. And you've reached that part of the journey. So i think that it will be cold to go back and kind of chronologically talk about and talk about the shell when we get to that point so. I'm looking forward to doing that. Yeah so i always ask this. I mean like how did you get. Starting e commerce whole thing it started is a great story. I think i started when i'm sixty one years old. I just kinda looked at what we had saved. My husband. And i and i went. You know. i think we're not gonna have enough one or die starting ecommerce business and at that time the amazing selling machine was opening. Its doors and i just jumped in and went okay. I can learn anything. I'll give it a try and reinvent myself. So that's what i did. I i had no idea I was ever going to really make any major dollars. I thought what i was gonna do and hopefully was maybe three or four thousand dollars profit every month to our bottom line and that would be great. But i reached cycle and four

"snell" Discussed on The Bronx Pinstripes Show - Yankees MLB Podcast
"Dude was was looked every bit of mvp in the playoffs he. He dominated the playoffs but the way that it ended towards the end with blake style. Game six apologize for for bringing back bad memories but it does seem like it was that has something to do with the way that the off season Kind of rolled out. Snell obviously traded to san diego the race bringing a what seems like a plethora of veteran pitchers to throw spaghetti on the wall almost or mixed see if we can get one last one. Let's go out of these guys which to be honest. I don't doubt because tampa has been able to do that with multiple people. So yeah curious your thoughts ending the season and just just what that what that taste was going into the offseason with snell being traded. That's look i. It's one of those things. Where since knell has been off the roster we i guess thankfully haven't really had to relive game six because the the media isn't asking questions about a looking back on game six hair you entering this season so on and so forth. So it's almost into the yankees. Yeah yeah there. We go so Look i think that after game. Six things had kind of been ramping up to that point of blake snail. And the raise kind of okay. It's probably time for us to go our separate ways even though he to pretty much twenty nine other mlb teams. He has a very team. Friendly deal laughed with three years. Thirty nine million dollars on that contract. The raise aren't like every or every other organization out there and they're just been things with you know the when they traded tommy fan. He expressed his disappointment with that game. Six he he added. Scott boris as agent. Lot of things going on with that and he also expressed disappointment very vividly about not being able to go deep into ball games. And that's been the raise. Mo of ladies. Hey we're going to have starters be five guys. We're going to bring in the bullpen sixth inning and and try to close this up place now former cy young award winner. He wants to be able go seven and eight. He wants to get his chance at a complete game. And maybe he'll get that opportunity in san diego. I don't know but yet talk about throwing spaghetti on a wall because they of course not just traded blake's now for i think four very good prospects and players. That will definitely help this team. In time over the next several years they also opted not to bring back charlie morton on an option and i look i. I know this is sort of heartless in a way. I would have picked up. His option then traded him to the braves or somebody else and try to get something in return. But i guess there was so much mutual respect from both sides that they opted. Like if if we're bringing you back we're bringing you back to keep you. We don't want to bring you back and then give you this impression. You're gonna be on the team and then trade you a week or two or two or month later whatever. It is so what they've essentially done. Is they've unloaded payroll off the starting rotation and in return for veteran guys who have question marks have a history of success. But you just don't know what you're going to get from those guys. Whether it's chris archer column mccue michael walker Rachel the list goes on. And on. And i guess the idea and the thinking along those lines of and they brought in all those four guys for a combined. Thirteen point eight million dollars. Which is less than what charlie morton would've made At fifteen miles so really. What they're thinking is These four guys if they can give a combined four hundred fifty innings. The most that charlie morton is going to give you may be one seventy five. So you're going from sixty to one sixty two. We just need guys that can give us any in any way possible. That's part of the other part of it is they have a really really good stable of prospects in the minor leagues. That are going to be knocking on the door in the next couple of months. Whether it's shane mcclanahan josh fleming. Who saw a lot of action. Joe ryan lewis. Pitino brennan mckay brent honeywell lot of guys there that are chomping at the bit so once those guys are fully stretched out and inevitably once ritual. Goes down with something or chris. Archer goes down with something then they can start to bring those guys up sometime along midseason late season and hopefully had the depth to get through one sixty two so that's kind of what their line of thinking. There is while at the same time trying to save a buck or two. Which is the the raise way so to speak. Yeah yeah so. That's that's exactly you know everybody's looking at tampa and saying well. They lost morton. they lost snell. This is clearly going to be the yankees division. this is and which. I don't disagree. I think it is the yankees division to lose at this point. But that being said tampa has has been able to turn these no name guys in their bullpen. Into you know the the quote horse the stable of horses and and they've they've been able to make a lot from very little or they'll identify a guy who's had injury history and for whatever reason make some tweaks change his. You know his situation within the team and gotten a lot out of him. They've they've been able to add a lot of value from from. I'd say little and that's i think that's one of the big strengths from from kevin cash and an organization. So when i see that snell is gone and that morton is gone. Yes it's a. It's a hit to the team. But i have no doubt that they're going to fill that piece with someone else and probably someone of never heard of and this guy's gonna come in and you know this guy or these guys and and do well. It's just they have a track record of doing this. And the fact that you know they got archer wocka hill mchugh like you mentioned. It's possible that one of them have a bit of a resurgence would not surprise me. If archer all of a sudden found you know a little bit more of a semblance of being a pitcher and had some success so is by no means take them take them for granted and and i think that they are going to be a very serious threat in the in the division so curious. Your thoughts on what your expectations are for the specifically with this new New rosser yeah. That that's a. That's a great question a great point and i go back to like last year. Who would have thought that ryan thompson. John curtis and erin sleepers would be a thing that they would have success. Nobody had really heard of these guys beforehand and then we see them and they have a media success and it's like well maybe the rays have found some something and i think that's what they're going to do again with guys like jeffrey springs and chris maza and a bunch of volk guys and the other thing. Too with that is I know that nick anderson that bad news about him. He's going to miss at least half the year with what he's dealing with elbow issues and the rays have to find a new defacto closer. Which i think you know between fairbanks and casteel. They should be able to do but they also have guys. That aren't getting talked about this year. That are have been contributed to the raise in the past and are expected for big roles in the bullpen. Cody raid for example andrew. Kitchen chaz roe. Those guys are finally healthy and ready to go. So that's going to be big for them. I think you know you look at the rotation wanted to five definitely isn't a top ten rotation anymore maybe not even a top fifteen rotation but i think the they have so many arms that can pitch in and fill in that. I think they'll find a way to get through. It wouldn't surprise me in the least if they've got like ten or guys by end of the year that have like eighty ninety one hundred indians between them. I think there's going to be a lot of guys that are going to be pitching a lot of innings in a lot of nixon. imagine from that standpoint. I think this is to be again for going from sixty to one. Sixty two While the rate on paper at least they're starting staff and maybe not even their their bullpen anymore. It doesn't look as elite as in last year. I think you know. Come to the dog days of summer. September august you get late in the season where i think teams are going to be hampered by injuries and ailments And it's going to be like a nfl season where it's just like..

House approves Biden's $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill, with no Republican votes
"The House of Representatives has approved a $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief. Package for those of you keeping track with this bill. Congress has now spent roughly $6 trillion to bail the country out of the havoc caused by the pandemic. And to put that into perspective that is about seven times larger than the stimulus passed back during the great recession of 2009. His latest bill includes a fresh round of $1400 stimulus checks, also a new and expanded child tax credit to rent relief utility relief and more money to help the uninsured by health coverage through obamacare. The bill passed with no support from Republicans, President Biden plans to sign the bill into law on Friday. NPR congressional correspondent Kelsey Snell joins us now, with the latest take Kelsey Hi there so no support from Republicans and tow layout. Republicans say they oppose it because it's not targeted enough. They argue it controlling the virus. They also say it's just we don't need to spend this much because the economy is already on the path to recovery. Do they have a point? What we're talking about here is really a question of two really different ways of viewing the economy and this pandemic. Republicans say that GDP numbers Wall Street All of these things are improving their you know the unemployment rate is falling. And they point of funding for the arts and humanities programs, museums and things like that is not necessarily about the pandemic on the face. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy also compared federal spending in this bill to socialism, and he said, it just isn't sustainable. Showers money on special interests. It spends less than 9% on actually defeating the virus. They're really focusing on that money about getting back scenes out. They're reopening schools. That is the core of what Republicans say the money should be spent on and some Republicans said during the debate today on the House floor that sending checks to people is just popular, but they think bull object once they realize how much the government is spending on things that are not directly related to coronavirus relief. Okay, now, how do Democrats respond? All that Democrats? Say that Wall Street gains really just paper over major problems in the economy that are not felt by the vast majority of people. The vast majority of people are not stockholders, and they say This bill is meant to be a big social safety net. It's supposed to have more support for the uninsured. Like you mentioned more support for families with Children, people who are unemployed. People who are homeless and people who are struggling to make rent. You know, unemployment is improving, but the job Liz rate is still nearly double what it was before the pandemic, and the number of long term unemployed people is still up by three million this year, and that's all, according to the official Bureau of Labor Statistics. There's also money in here for institutions like museums that have been shuttered or have seen revenue declines that threatened their ability to reopen one vaccines or just tripped, barred out and distributed and people are going back in, and Democrats say this bill is about the whole system. No, I will note that Americans a lot of Americans seem to be on board with this legislation. Polls show fairly widespread support for it, which is something Democrats like 2.2. Are there potential political downsides here, though, for four Democrats, while Democrats say the Republicans will pay the price for lining up against something that is at this moment so popular House Speaker Nancy Pelosi pointed out that people who will benefit from this bill don't just vote for Democrats. And she says Republicans are voting against something they'll take advantage of later. It's typical that they vote no and take the dough. And this bill has bipartisan support across the country. You hear her? They're speaking through a mask on the house floor. But you know, a lot depends on how this is administered. Will it go out slowly You do. Schools actually reopened. Do bad actors get money? And does he economy actually improve with this infusion of cash, and that's all a
Donald Trump's second impeachment trial begins today
"Trial of Donald Trump is said to begin today. Defense attorneys say the proceeding is illegal because the former president's remarks to supporters who attacked the U.

They say that evidence against the former president is as they describe it overwhelming and they say what Trump is trying to do is to escape accountability. They also say that you know that the arguments that his lawyers are putting up basically don't meet the definition of what is constitutionally protected. They say that they're going to argue That the president should have been held to account for his actions because they happen well. He was in office, therefore, making him subject to impeachment.

VP Harris casts tie-breaker vote in Senate progressing stimulus bill
"The Senate passed a budget resolution after a 15 hour marathon session known as a vote a Rama. It ended with Vice President Kamala Harris, casting her first tie breaking vote of the Biden administration. Passing the budget measures sets the stage for Democrats to move forward with Biden's coronavirus relief plan without Republican support. NPR congressional correspondent Kelsey Snell joins us now and Kelsey Walk us through what happened last night in the Senate and into the early morning. So this whole process known as a vote A Rama is a normal part of getting a budget passed and the very first step in using the procedural tool that Democrats want to use to pass the coronavirus aid is passing a budget. Down that also involves up just an endless string of amendments. Basically, any senator can offer basically on the amendment as often as they want and as long as they want until they get tired. The thing about it, though, is most of the amendments that get past are nonbinding, meaning that they end up having almost no no real impact on whatever legislation is to come. So we went through this long ritual, this long process to set up what will be now the committee work. So all of the committees that are named in this budget resolution will start to get to work on writing an actual covert, really fill a thing that could be enacted into law. And speaking of those amendments, Republicans and even some Democrats have suggested limiting Biden's proposed $1400 direct checks to a smaller group of people. Are there any details yet? About who could be excluded from that relief and what the income threshold might be. We don't really know for sure yet, because, like I said the committee's haven't actually started doing their work. What we do know is that there is some appetite, including among Democrats to make sure that those checks are targeted more. There have been some arguments that people who are making more than is may be necessary to To need an additional influx of cash. But those people have been receiving tax and there's an effort to kind of parrot down to make sure that as Republicans say it is targeted relief Now there is a debate about who really qualifies as being too high of an income to require such stimulus on I think we're going to be seeing that play out over the next several weeks. And I think the fact that there was an amendment on this issue that it got debate and that you know, it's indicates that this is something that both sides really care about, which means that it is most likely to have a really serious conversation that could drag out for at least the duration of the time that this isn't committees. I see. I see. And did we learn anything more during this process last night about the fate of a plan to raise the federal minimum wage to 15 bucks an hour. We do know that this is another place where there is, You know some disagreement among Democrats about the fate of the $15 minimum, which some Democrats say that $15 is just not What it should be across the country. They say that maybe in some cities in jurisdictions $15 is a reasonable minimum wage. But they say that other places in the country that doesn't need to be quite that high. Now President Biden has said that it needs to be part of the package. Bernie Sanders, the Budget committee chairman, says that that needs to be part of the package, so this could be one of those issues. That really drags Congress into a fight we've seen with budget reconciliations process that they're using that little fights over things that are important policies to some members can drag down entire bills, and this is a policy that is very important to a lot of people. So it could be one of those issues that we see people fighting about for the next several weeks. Kelsey. I spoke with Senator Tim Kaine earlier this week. And he tried to make the point that this budget reconciliation process could still be bipartisan. Even though a final bill likely isn't going to require any Republican support based on what you saw last night. Is that true? Are Republicans having much of a say in this process? That is technically true. There have been bipartisan reconciliation bills in the past, but you know in this situation Republicans air starting out at about $600 billion, and Democrats are talking about $1.9 trillion. Bridging that gap and finding bipartisanship on such a big divide would be very difficult to come by. NPR's Kelsey Snell. Thank you so much. Thanks for having me.

"What if it's forty games into the season. He's hitting under two hundred. It's like they're not gonna stick with another of edits it. He's got to get off to a hot start and and it's just we'll plenty of players. Don't get off to a hot start. A forty game slump isn't the end of the world in a for normal player but forgets inches. It could end his yankees career. It very well could it very well could at the end of the day it just. It's hard for me to wrap my head around a player who is a starting who's the starter on a team. Entrench starter like no doubt clear. Cut starter who is then slowly getting his job taken away from him and he just sits there and lets it happen. I don't understand that your professional athlete. How can you possibly let that happen. Not not the p- not let it happen. But how could you just sit there and allow things to happen without some kind of explanation. Well yeah ya gotta hope. He uses this as a learning experience as i said. I'm not super hopeful. I am not super hopeful that this relationship is going to work out in the end. We'll see his talents there. There's no doubt fuck thirty. One forty can leave the fucking want done. We'll talk about the padres stuff. And then the cece. Well the best thing to happen to the yankees so far. This offseason is the padres decided that they no longer want to be competitive in the al east. Letting charlie morton walk and then trading away. That's about aspects. Yeah sorry the raise trading away to the padres blake snell There were rumors at the at the very beginning of the offseason. That they were going to shop blake. Snell i didn't know if they would act. I didn't think they would actually trade it. Because i didn't see how an organization that was just in the world series trades away their best starting pitcher but they did it. Okay so i am. I'm a little. I'm a little scared of these moves to be honest. If i'm if. I'm being completely frank here. I think this is going to be a problem. Because blake's was not really a big problem for the new york yankees two years. It's going to be a problem maybe into my beers that'd be a bigger problem before the these they have a couple they got a couple of prospects that are going to be getting up here pretty quick. They got a top pitching prospect. Louis battino teen. He's twenty one six foot right. Hander sits at ninety seven miles an hour. Looks like debbie. Garcia make up. Why devastating slider but then they got a pitching prospect who is much lower on the boards in two catching prospects. This this was not the like getting austin meadows and tyler glass now for for chris archer this is not that kind of trade. No but we could look at it differently in a year or two depending on how these guys do and the way that the rays at tina turns into a top five pitcher in baseball than we're like well shit right. Yeah and the raise of proved that they can do that and they also have proved that they get a lot from guys that some teams just won't get so. I have zero confidence to say that these guys will not be effective. I do think they will be effective and probably longer than blake. Snow would be so. Yeah i think that they can. What about twenty twenty. Why they can raise. We're going to be a problem. It hurts their chances to win the division in two thousand hartson. And especially when you get rid of morton and you get rid of smell like that's that's a that's a unique glass now to very much very much. Need him to stay healthy now. But there's a strength their strength was there pitching and yes they have a very deep pitching staff and they bullpen their way through the plan and everything but those kind of anchored by three good starting pitchers and now they only have one now. They have some younger kids. Who are probably gonna come up. Maybe pitino starts in the major leagues. Who the hell knows but not having snell there. I think is a big issue. Even if you say the yankees always hits. Melanie was never a major issue for the yankees. Snow is a great pitcher. Who won them a lot of games. There's no doubt. I just. I have a feeling it. It seems to me that the razor confident and what's coming up they're confident and maybe moving guy from the bullpen into a starting rotation could see that and an your yarborough and who is the other guy that pitched like every year every five minutes for them in the playoffs. I just think that there's there's a a number of these guys anderson that they believe could probably make that transition and they already have that in their minds. So i have a feeling that the rays don't think that they're playing chess. The raisel don't think the. I think the team believed they can withstand any loss any loss and be very competitive again and and i. I don't think the wrong. I think they can't i think they absolutely can. So does this change to me like what the rates are at the end of the day not really. It doesn't look like snell is a very good pitcher. There's no doubt he was cy young. Two years ago zaslov in the playoffs. I think there was a little bit of like. Hey i'm not happy. Do you think there's anything to do with the world. I think there was some him is that he he made waves after being probably did and they're like oh you're not on board with our analytics. I approach ship. You're replacing 'cause we got nerds. Who who can make think yes exactly they. They don't look at names. They just look at statistics. And they'll find someone else to fill those statistics and so i would not be surprised and in salary was affordable to another team like the padres. They're getting a top-flight pitcher for very affordable salary. Over the next three years. I would not be surprised if if they have somebody come up and does well or they go back to what they were doing and they bullpen more often because they got away from that they remember they were good without any starting pitching also they. They have the depth to do that and they did it. Throughout the season and with the playoffs expanding does the starting pitcher really matter as much anymore. I'd argue. no. I'd argue that having a number one guy when you have the bullpen. With the way that they do the way that they play their game that top-flight starting pitcher is just not as important so throw as many arms that are quality ineffective as you possibly canada team and they will. How can you say that. How can you say that after watching what happened in the playoffs with the yankees and not any starting pitching after one starting am talking about this team specifically in the way that they have the depth in their bullpen. I don't think it's is important to them okay. Maybe it's not important today that everybody gets us. They're gonna make the playoffs doesn't matter if they had they could throw anybody.

"Saturday night toda's pod talking fantasy football here at a mazer jamie is. They got a lot of questions we figured might as well. Just do this podcast. Hopefully we'll help you give you some good advice fingers crossed. There's a lot of question marks out there right now. Jamie let's go Situation by situation first of all if you don't have a commissioner who a nice enough to let you substitute steelers ravens if the game gets canceled. Do you just basically have to say or. Do you think they're gonna play that game. I think they're going to play that game. But obviously there's you know positive tests positive cases popping up with the steelers Today obviously james conner being the the big one so if they get more positive cases the game could obviously be in jeopardy. But i mean we've seen with the nfl's done so far. They've tried to push through as much as they can. And so if they have enough healthy body on both. I mean no. We're going to talk about the situation over. There never would have met and they're gonna play this game on tuesday. I hope so. Yeah i mean. I hope we get that game in. It's going to be tuesday night as of now okay. So let's talk about that. Ravens steelers game he goes. Yes picking up. Benny snell was a very good idea. Anthony mcfarland might not be a terrible idea also because connors going to miss two games right i think so it's it's clearly not defined yet but the fact that they play five days after playing tuesday i don't think he's going to be able to play against washington in week. Thirteen okay so ranks running backs in that game. Now snell edwards mcfarland justice. Even though we'll jail see tip about justice hill yeah. I just think you know that. There's a clear indication of what the ravens have done with gus edwards in two games without mark ingram Double digit carries. So i mean maybe justice still has a good opportunity here but i i just..

"It's like talk about staying power. I. I am surprised to hear you guys both take any snow number one because if Congress Yankee. Around I I, I have no problem with somebody wants take Malcolm Brown I. But if you just follow what the reports were this off season that they're events are going to turn the job over to cam makers and the fact that he's still got fourteen carries in this game. Yeah. Being designed that they WANNA work him up and get him close to being ready to go to eventually take over. That job. So I don't know how long Brown will be like this playing like this doing what he did. He was fantastic over four yards per carry like you said, three catches was great to see I. Don't think dialysis run defense is going to be very good. Especially vanish leaving the game. So if that's the best indication of how good he can be, we'll find out but I think. Again long-term is what you should be thinking as well as just week to and so Malcolm Brown may not be the leading rusher for the rams for a several weeks span. LONG-TERM I is it fair to say that hines has the clearest long-term outlet? Yes Okay And I basically. I mean is it fair to say Naim hines basically to Cohen maybe with more carries you know. which is what we said that the be prior to the NFL draft. When they got filled rivers because he also. Yeah. I guess. So they've said he's on pace for one hundred, twenty, eight catches. I've been saying all along seventy because he averaged fifty four catches in his first two years. So seventy was kind of the number I was looking at for him with Philip Rivers I mean he may shatter that. It just as bad as it looked against Jacksonville he may shatter that well hopefully hopefully, it isn't that bad. Yeah Heinsohn played a couple of games without Marlin MAC last year hines had nine carries and one of those games he had four carries and a rushing touchdown. Another one of those games oddly enough you only had two catches in those games, but it's a different offense with the different quarterback who throws to his running back all the time. What James? Robinson. Who is roster and sixty nine percent of leagues is available where would you put him and I'll give Jamie's priorities again in art was Snell Hines Malcolm Brown Kelly in non PR was Snell. Brown hines Kelly if. Is Out there. What do you do? I. I mean. He he he had a good game wasn't like. Blow your mind good game against the goals. But the fact that he had every every kid a cherry for Jaguars and was involved in the passing game that shows you how much they like this kid and so we'll find out what they're gonNA eventually do with Mike while Armstead. And Divino Zibo, you know when those guys are healthy and ready to go but there's a chance armstead may not play anytime soon and those Igbo who knows how that ankles GonNa you know recover. I. Think you're looking at Robinson as the guy for the Jaguars and the last couple of weeks. You know once they got rid of four net that's all we've heard is how much they like this? What if Sony Michelle's available he's eighty percent rostered. Now. I would put him behind I'd put behind all those other guys. You know maybe have Kelly if you need somebody to play right away just because you know he'll get guaranteed touches but I'd rather have Kelly personally. Guys is going to be a really tough week to set your priority. You're going to have so much foam. Oh, and they're going to be a ton of players that you want because you know in some of your leagues a guy like James crowder might be available Daria Sleet and might be available even though they're roster and eighty percent of leagues right and then, and then there's the Paris Campbell in the viscous Chenault and there's Dallas Goddard, and maybe you even want to Stream Logan Thomas this week and and all these running. Backs and then you've got Josh Adams of the world and the miles gaskins of the world where it's like, yeah, you know for gases. Okay. He's probably not going to be the dolphins starting running back. Maybe he will be as three solid games in a row for him dating back to last year respectable games. So players that sort of needs to be roster just to see where it goes I don't know I. Mean we get a few weeks every year. What's like the waiver wire is loaded the waiver wires loaded right now isn't it? Now. It's Lee. The star quality wide receivers not there unless the guys that you mentioned are available around eighty percent range you know so. Anthony Miller's journals the Campbell's of the world they're not going to necessarily draw as much attention as the four running backs. We talked about daughter You know those those kinds of players because of what either they shown you in the past or the ability that they have after what you saw in week one. So that's the difference between those type of moves you could be making, but I do think you're going to see some scenarios week to and beyond you're like, Oh, my God, I could have picked up Campbell. or I could have picked optional for basically nothing and I missed on that because I didn't make a second waiver claim or third waiver claim or a third FAB move to drop somebody who you may be hanging onto a and again, you don't want to overreact a week one. So you know like the guys that I listed to drop their some big name players there but you just have to sort of gauge which roster look like and what the upside versus the downside of some of these scenarios can be.

"Up everything makes visual sent you can see. Oh, I have notes paired with messages here in a space and I have notes a different note, but the same app notes paired with safari over here. That's the one I want, and I can tap it and it brings it comes forward. Whereas when you do the command tab thing and you go to notes, and it doesn't bring up the one you want, and there's no other option. It it just feels broken. I feel like that's a hole in the interface that they, they should fix. But, but overall, I think that the, the way that they've expanded the mo- multi panel. Interface for ipad. OS is really, really clever. And I really think it's especially I think, for people who, like you who. That's your primary, you're only portable machine being able to do to up is to me magical. I brought that up at my talk show. But to is the magic number where I it's like you have old, new left and right. And if you can look at two notes at the same time or two word documents or Google documents using the ipad, desktop browsing, or whatever sure to up is, is magical, and being able to do that is a huge huge win slide over which was really just kind of like a, a remnant of the original concept. And it was always a little bit weird and kind of hard to get rid of and hard to manage actually gone to be what they done with. That is turn it into an iphone, basically, which is brilliant. So the now it's going to be much more useful. Because now the slide over thing you know, you sort of slide it out, and it's a floating window above your. Content, but you can swipe on the bottom can't on the bottom of an iphone ten and it'll just go through all of your different apps and windows that are they are, or you can swipe up and get a little multitasking apps, which are just for slide over and slight over is no longer this kind of like app in a box off on the side. It's now like a quick access to any app, you want for a moment, which, like, I feel like it's way more powerful a concept now than it was before. And I actually think I will use it in a way that I just never bothered with with the old one. Because now it's just so easy to just get at anything for a moment. Do what you need to, and then flip it away. And that's, that's a good concept. I like that. I do this. I wonder if you do too. But I'll do this where I'm working on my ipad and sometimes even my MAC too. But I'll take out my phone and do something on my phone, literally, my actual phone just because I know it's brief and I know. That like some of the continuity features are so great that I can count on it. Like, let's say I know that I saw tweet from Jason Snell, and he had a link that I definitely want to get on my maximum. How I'll just go to my phone and there it is because I left tweet bot there, and I can copy it, and copy it from my phone and then just switched my MAC. And paste and continuity will make you know, give me the thing I just copied on the other device. I feel like you can use slide over like that now like it's like having like you said like having an iphone on your ipad screen just for like a one off. You know, get this thing and get rid of it. Yeah. If it's not the app, the big frustration before was like it's not the app that you want. Then it's this whole thing where you're going through and trying to find what app you want to drop their and now you just flip through them until you find the thing you want, and then grab it, and then flip it away. And that's it. It's I think it's a good. I'm impressed with how they really rethought. The slide over thing is like what we do is slide over to make it better. And the answer was, we're going to take, and this may not have been an accident and may have been part of the big picture even last year..

And when they started to get under the cap is Bobby has been documenting on Twitter and in his pieces for while now to get under the cap to resign. Lopez to take advantage of Chris Middleton's. Relatively small cap hold and Braga teensy. Teensy hold. I just, you know, I bet they're going to bring back brogden and Middleton and Lopez Mirta goes away, and they're going to either be ripe below the tax or a little bit over it. And I think the question is going to become. Are we willing to pay the tax come brogden, and I don't know what the answer is? But Chicago took one may of take in one place off the board. But I know the bucks are bracing for a huge Malcolm Brogdon offer sheet. And look, you can tell me they have Bledsoe already how a central is brogden, how replaceable Assi, Malcolm brogden win. It mattered was the second best player on their team. When it mattered against Toronto, and Eric Bledsoe, couldn't shoot and couldn't be on the floor. Malcolm Brogdon was the second most important player on their team, and they also have to ask themselves. So is this going to happen to let so every play offs just going to be a thing where he can't shoot, and he and like, it's it the brogden thing is now one of the more interesting questions, the offseason act like so they did to deal with the Troy, they flip. Tony snell. John lor. They say which lot of thought they couldn't do. I mean Louis peepers Tony snow contractors no way that, thirtieth pickets you offer that and now they still have Ilyasova who they can get off. That's not going to be that difficult. Dr. They, they wanna get all Phillies, so they may have they need to. Yeah. They can still make that move. But they so they saved about four million dollars. I think for for the season for next for nineteen twenty and a game self a little bit of a buffer, but like you run the numbers right, like we were talking about it, and like so you can get to thirteen million room with waving George hill, and then renounce your mere Titian that group there. And you can bring Lopez back at like twelve thirteen million. And then with Middleton in brogden at twenty you're going to be in the luxury tax. I mean, you're going to be like, like, I think eight million would say, and you can say all the luxury tax bad like Janas mega-deals coming up in a couple of years, we gotta prepare for that. You've got to avoid the repeater taxes. I know nothing but like this is when you pay the tax. Well, yeah..
