Fresh update on "sonia" discussed on Serious Inquiries Only
"Seven and a half years older than the average retirement. Of any of of the last hundred, twenty years in the supreme. Court. I still see why she didn't and I don't necessarily blame her for it. I found an interview where she said that she didn't think anyone Obama could appoint would be as left wing is her at that point because we know that's demonstrably not true early in Obama's administration and I'll tell you why and this gets to one of the other responses. The other response you get is Look no one else can do the job she still had known have been as left as her no one. No one could do the things she was doing. That makes no sense to me because you know we have. A demonstrated history of Soda, my or being actually more progressive. By a little bit, not a ton. But Sony Soda My is my favorite justice. She's more progressive on a few things It's pretty much the same. If you look at measures of her verses BG pretty much the same I think the only difference is criminal justice. If you're looking at our BG's legacy couple criminal justice decisions like she didn't join in the finding that solitary confinement should should not be tolerated and actually Kennedy at the time did. So she she didn't join a descent with Kennedy on that or a concurrence I think with Kennedy that solitary confinement is just torture something. One of the I'd have to get Andrew explained the ruling but you can look it up. She did that a couple criminal justice matters that she wasn't good on there's one case. That Literally Soda Sonia Sotomayor was the only dissent on the case Kansas V car. It's a death penalty case. It has to do with like jury instructions again, you wrong podcast for legal breakdown. Look it up. I. Guess or We'll talk about way. But anyway, this was an eight one case, the only dissent Sunny Soda Your the author was Scalia so this is all the liberals on the court except the most liberal Sonia. Sotomayor, my favorite justice, the only dissent everybody else joined a Scalia opinion the idea that there what there isn't another woman who would do the job as well as her I. You know all due respect RPG legend I just don't think that's true I mean. It's demonstrably not true Now, there's the other claim of well, would could they have gotten through? RPG answers that question that interview I'll put these links in the show notes I think, just dump all my links in there because I have a giant. Thing of tabs open Specifically says The while we've gotten rid of the Filibuster for lower, court appointments it's still there for the Supreme Court and so I don't think we could get somebody passed it would be as left as I want them to be is what she said in this interview. and. I think that's a little bit like when you want the decision to be certainly, you're just fine. What would've happened is we would have eliminated filibuster. I I think that's absolutely true I. Think the only reason we didn't is because it hadn't come up. And we didn't know it was going to come up. So Democrats here's what happened just again, some facts. What happened early on Obama's tenure Republican started doing the norm breaking thing. They did we had a simple majority still so we could still ultimately approve Obama's nominees but Republican start doing all this crap these tricks like slow everything down to a grinding halt they used every dirty trick. They could to just gum up the works entirely and Democrats were very slow to recognize this. This is absolutely at the feet of Democrats Democratic leadership at the time. Harry. Reid. They should have pulled these nuclear option sooner eventually did in two thousand, thirteen. November twenty thirteen. They said enough is enough. We have to be able to make these court appointments like it's just not fair that coincidentally you're you're doing everything, you can to slow down the appointment process for the first black president ever. Since and so they got rid the filibuster Democrats got rid of the Filibuster for Lower Court appointments in November twenty thirteen they specifically preserved it for Supreme Court appointments now I'd they do that? Well? I think that you know they recognize that they were doing a norm breaking thing and Democrats are far more loath to do a norm break thing. Then Republicans Republicans will proudly just shatter norms. They don't care for the most part why they they are better at retaining power than we are. But I think Democrats wanted to split the baby there and be like. Well, we're not doing this for the Supreme Court you know. So we're not going to crazy thinking that it wasn't to matter. Little did they know? That scully would pass away twenty sixteen and it did come to matter because had we gotten rid of it. then. We would have been able to get garland through. But I absolutely think it's the case I really do even even that. Democratic Senate would have gotten rid of it to get a Supreme Court justice through if our want to retire I, absolutely believe that's your I. Think they were leaving it up there to save face to try to make it seem like they weren't as norm breaking as they were and they didn't think it would come up and it didn't come up until after they could no longer do anything about it. So, when McConnell took over again, two, thousand fifteen, and then Scalia died in two thousand sixteen that it was beyond the point where we could have done that we didn't have the majority more. So we couldn't do it and here's another thing I should have said this I apologize I don't think we would have even needed the filibuster. Now, the argument that that RPG's making in the sort of anti-big retirement argument is. While Republicans would have opposed it. It's et Cetera we only had fifty three senators maybe fifty, four, fifty, five dependence would have supported the. It's only the hardcore. Republicans. Wouldn't have supported the supreme court nominee because again when McConnell blocked Merrick Garland, that was a dramatically norm breaking thing there's only been one. That had ever not quite made it. Up to that point. So like this was a huge norm breaking most voters and this is the thing I was going to say. What McConnell did was he stopped it from coming to a vote which is very different. They did not vote down Merrick Garland if you remember properly. Because actually I don't think they could have. This is a what the house did to. This is what the House did under Paul Ryan. Thing is. Like most it's getting less and less true. But like back in the day back in my day ten years ago. Most representatives and senators were still you know had these little gentle gentlemen's agreements or whatever, and the way Republicans stopped everything was by not allowing it to come to a vote and so that allow Mitch McConnell to be the bad guy nobody else really had to take the blame for Mitch McConnell's gambit with Carlin because he just didn't do it said, no, we're not going to vote. and. So I actually think had GINSBURG retired..

Fresh update on "sonia" discussed on The Erick Erickson Show
"All of you people in your resistance fan fiction in your red robes and nonsense a you're not serious people you are part of a cult. Now, who actually is amy conybeare it not the monster that Democrats say she was Amy Cody Jarrett was Antonin Scalia favourite law clerk. Hands down across time and space. She was Antonin Scalia favorite law clerk. He would refer her as his favourite years after she stopped being his law clerk she was his favourite law clerk and she loves Antonin Scalia and if you like scalise jurisprudence, you're GonNa Love Amy Conybeare it. If you don't like Scalia, you're not gonNA like Amy Conybeare. When it comes to criminal defendants and their rights and law. Enforcement. She is aligns more with Scalia than with Gorsuch Gorsuch has trended as aligned with Sonia Solomon a lot on criminal defendant rights on the Supreme Court. Livy read you for reason, magazine when it comes to the rights of criminal defendants and the actions of law enforcement agencies. The conservative label covers a wide range of attitudes although progressives tend to depict Justice Antonin Scalia as an daughter Ogre. For instance, he sided with defendants and several important fourth amendment and sixty amendment cases. Neal Gorsuch, the judge President Donald, trump's pick to replace scalia has shown an even stronger inclination to uphold the rights of. The accused into question the conduct of police officers and prosecutors repeatedly breaking with fellow conservatives such as Lido in. Thomas. By contrast contrast fifth, circuit, Judge James Oh another candidate on trump's list of potential supreme court nominees showed a troubling difference to law enforcement and a twenty one, thousand, nine case involving a man killed by Texas Sheriff's Deputies. The Opinions Barrett has written in cases brought by criminal defendants and prisoners joining the US Circuit Court of Appeals. In two, thousand, seventeen, present a mixed picture. while. She is often skeptical of the government's arguments when it tries to put or keep people in prison, she has sometimes rejected claims by defendants and prisoners that her colleagues found credible. It is clear for Barrett's record that she does not reflexively side with the government in criminal cases in two thousand, nineteen opinion. For example, she concluded that Drug Enforcement Administration agents violated the fourth amendment when they searched a suspect's apartment based on the consent of a woman who answered the door but did not live there. It is reasonable for officers to assume that a woman who answers the door at a bathrobe has considered to authority to consent to search of a male..

Fresh update on "sonia" discussed on The Ben Shapiro Show
"DOT com slash Shapiro go check them out right now. Okay. So the Democratic Party has since the early twentieth century been at total war with the Declaration of Independence Philosophy Woodrow Wilson was not shy about this. He thought the Declaration of Independence, was hackneyed thought it was old he thought the idea of inalienable rights pre existing Government was ally that government was the only guarantor of your rights and therefore government had to be as big and as powerful as humanly possible in order to affect wait those rights. This has been the philosophy of the Democratic Party for well over one hundred years at this point. That means that the only obstacle. To to Utopia is ability to implement, and that means that all the checks and balances. When Democrats are in power should go away. It means that the constitution of the United States should become basically a dead letter. This is why they always talk about the dead constitution as opposed to the living constitution by constitution they mean, whatever we want is what the constitution says. And this means that the judiciary should become a tool of democratic policy-making. This has long been a democratic talking point is that the institutions of the United States ought to be completely overthrown in pursuit of the sort of Utopian. Scheme whereby government grants you all of the rights you could possibly want and all the entitlements you could possibly want. All you have to do is give up all of your doubts about government's invading your rights in the first place, which of course, completely overthrows the rationale of the American revolution. This was this is not hidden. Okay. This is very clear philosophers on the left progressive philosophers from Woodrow Wilson's John Dewey stated this sort of stuff openly at the beginning of the Twentieth Century And then that particular philosophy has been given new credence new credibility by the rise of so-called critical theory this is the the the critical legal studies genre basically suggests that the principles of the declaration of independence rely in the first place. That the the idea of inalienable rights pre existing government offended by that government, those ideas were rely. Now, there are two particular forms that dislike supposedly took particular from number one is that this was a class-based lie that it was basically a bunch of rich people who attempting to enshrine in law and via the institutions of the constitution, their own economic privilege this. Argument was first put forth by a guy named Charles Beard a historian who tried to suggest that the real reason that the founders did the constitution and and declaration. The way that they did is because they were hiding their own economic interests turns out that that was bad history but it was a really really big idea formative in the generation of the progressive movement. And that has been held by people like Howard Zinn it's been carried forward throughout sort of Marxist aviation and Bernie Sanders Bernie Sanders talks like this, that basically the institutions of the declaration in the constitution were created in order to enshrine class privilege. It's a Marxist take on the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United. States. Then we have the racially Marxist take on the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States and this is the sixteen nineteen project and their basic idea. is also the the of Abram candy it's the idea of Angela, Davis and stokely Carmichael. The basic idea here is that all of the institutions of the United States we're not really instituted in order to protect class privilege there are instituted to protect racial privilege. So the rights of freedom of speech and bear arms and the right to a free press. All of that was meant to just enshrine hierarchies that already existed and to protect white privilege against people of other races who. Could, take control of the government, and so that was the real goal here and you see this in the discussions. Now about systemic racism, the systems have to be torn down because the systems are themselves. Repositories of racism is not that you can locate racism in the system itself. You can actually look at the system and see that as racist is that the product of the system is racist because the intense behind the system unconscious or conscious was racist in the first place. So with that in mind you have to understand that when the Democrats look at institutions of American government, they see obstacles to what they want to do, and so they have shifted the nature of what we thought the Supreme Court was the supreme. Court again was supposed to be the least dangerous branch interpreting the text of a statute. Just as you don't think of the judiciary is a dangerous branch of government. When it comes to interpreting a contract, the founders never thought of the judiciary as dangerous branch of government they figured Dole interpret the text of the Constitution the way they would interpret the text of a contract. Democrats don't think like that for them. The constitution of the United States is nearly an obstacle to be overcome or a tool to be used if you can get enough justices on the supreme court and you can stack it with people who agree with you. And that is why every Supreme Court justice becomes a fighting issue for Democrats because they're losing a tool of power. If they lose the Supreme Court, they're losing what they use in order to cram down a particular point of view if they lose the Supreme Court. They've completely shifted the definition of what a justice is supposed to be read. Sonia Sotomayor is not interested in interpreting the text of a statute. Sonia Sotomayor is interested in prompting a leftist view of universes truth better Ginsburg as well for all the worship of Ruth Bader Ginsburg on civil procedure. She was interested in interpreting statutes on social issues. She didn't give one good damn about the constitution of the United States in that was perfectly clear and that's true of Sonia Sotomayor it's been true in in many cases of Justice Briar. It's been true of many of the Supreme Court, picks by the left, which is why democratic picks always vote for the democratic priorities. Invariably, whereas Republican picks very. Because Republicans are like, okay. Well, there are a lot of ways to read a Statute Democrats like there's only one way to read the statute and that's the way that agrees with Chuck Schumer? Nancy Pelosi. In just a second, we're going to get to Democrats threats to the institutions because there are predictable effective. All of this we're GONNA get to all of that in just one second I. Let us talk about the fact that there are a lot of new threats online like every single day their new threats online. Some of these threats include things like ransomware where somebody will hack into your computer and then they will hold hostage your data essentially until you pay them money..
New York Sanitation Commissioner Kathryn Garcia Leaves City Government, But Will She Run For Mayor? ‘Stay Tuned’
"Today, While a sanitation commissioner Kathryn Garcia, is last day on the job, you'll recall she took on a few other roles in city government during her 6.5 years at sanitation, and she's making no secret. She has her eye on a role with even more responsibility. Kathryn Garcia says she'll know in the next few weeks if she'll run for mayor. In the meantime, she's looking forward to a whole weekend off. She gotta send off with pipes and drums as she walked out of sanitation headquarters for the last time this commissioner Deputy Commissioner for recycling and sustainability. Bridget Anderson says Garcia did a lot to bring the uniformed and civilian sides of the department together. Have four operations were out there in the streets every day, but we're also doing planning. We're doing engineering doing policy, and she really found a way to bring together those two sides, so we're really working together a lot better, Garcia said On her last day, she told workers, they taught her a lot. Like sanitation lingo, terms like shrinking or coast to coast or going out of town or mongo are swell. I think they got a little bit of a kick out of that or clean garbage as she considers her possible next move, she says She is concerned about the department going into the winter with fewer workers as the city's budget constraints, lied to cuts and layoffs.

Xbox Series S and X preview
"All Right Tom. You have just like dummy xbox at your house, but what is going on? You just plastic shells. He's just making videos with like should I tell you the story of week? So. They arrived on. Monday morning and like like I'm grumpy wouldn't say old berm like it and I knew phone and we get new laptop and he does know me I, know that sounds like. And and I'm like I mean a really fortunate position. But like once you've seen so much stuff once visited location. So many times he just doesn't. It's not exciting, right? So He's very me to get sight about technology but like Jane genuinely when opened up the series was like, wow, this is. Not. Excited by a brand new laptop with the latest graphics card a super fast processor and a ton of Ram Beautiful Four K. screed but you were excited by a plastic dummy box of the xbox series. And I don't know why. But it was late is is a deny it sounds really like fan boil some. It sounds like he was like Christmas I was like Oh this is so. Because I haven't seen it before. And I knew other people hadn't seen before. So is an element of that but it was also just like Michael being so small like how did how did they do this? That was my immediate thing was like how like will? It right. They haven't told me anything about it at this point. So they just sent me these damn dummy units and I was just like. BSO The dummy units arrived they respond to be I mean there was supposed to be announcing this thing next week. So there's going to be a bunch of like. Honey. Technical. In Belgrade, sessions where briefings for the press, so they give us the full information so that we'd have our goals like informative for people to read. That's great involved because like it just means that I can explain things better. readers get better pitcher and but then it leaked. So I woke up I can't even remember which day it leaked because it's just been such a week. But it leads at some point. Jews Wednesday. Up, and I was like Oh God like zoo happen, and then like that will C- kick Mike soft intellect panic mode we need to announce everything because everything's leaked. So they like just dumped the whole thing. The experts pricing everything. This is a trend because Google does this now and the thing leaks that just like Oh. Yeah. Okay. That's Just did it with the wing? Yeah. Well, I mean L. L G announces every single practice makes fifty times so. Count. But it's a pattern. We might as well, just announce it. We're done I think I think with Marxist cases that I've been. Flight. Will to years. Alongside bunch of reposes will. But like I think for them, it was like they needed to explain his fingers like the thing suspending. Well, this is the experts series S. His basically a smaller more budget friendly and and let's say less performance. Experts console than the bigger experts series X, which I'm sure most people listening to this probably familiar with Bono and it's basically designed for fourteen Philippi gaming. So like that's I, mean I'd say the vast majority of Mona's out there today that people gaming on the moment. East acton on the TV's and stuff but like this is a pretty good. Sweets book fully Philippi right now, spy from the PC side and. It's like a good talk. And they basically promising a symbol of architecture and all of the next gen premiums from the series. Excellent. CPU cloud under two hundred megahertz. The thing I care about is, does it have the the fast d at the series extras? Yeah. It does but it's five hundred, twelve storage instead of one terabyte. So there are no right. There's no Dr. Discloses all digital. Is Two hundred, ninety nine buffs, which is, which is good. I think it's like that's a pretty impressive for us but this is obviously the the the drawbacks to it. No disks will do diesel prices. If Games are typically higher yields, he can't use use games I think a lot to see Sonia my soul. In some way I'd love to just say my district sorted signing just digitize as well. I think we spoke about that on the way I look at like this series s is I think he's great life. If you kid you place fort like twenty, four, seven in bed, remove ten ADP TV because you haven't spent. Two Thousand Bucks on the Keio lead for them. Surprisingly. Like. I think I. Think it's great for that sold market like having. By that for Free Hundred Bucks and they get the new CPU the new ESA stays below times and the performance overall will be like way better than expos one. Like it just depends how it compares to the to the series x I. Think like they're doing some upscaling stuff for four K. if you really want to touch, it's a four K.. By Donna, how good that's going to be. That misses the point like. Different market. But what is the market for fourteen forty game I mean When you say monitors get it but most people with fourteen forty P monitors plugging PC's into them not consoles I is fourteen forty pm out. So I think the market is really ten API. which which is the TV's. Still turn EP like I would probably imagine the forty percent Stilton apr there at the moment. And I think that goes wildly up when you look at bedrooms and like kids rooms like where you're buying a typically smaller TV and you're not gonNA get e can't even by like a smaller lighter the twenty. Shit Four. K. TV. It's just they just don't exist. Although maybe they do but like. Just don't sell volume and I think that that's the market. That's the market ICS. Definitely. Going for like the MOMS and the POPs the shopping around at Christmas and they want to get their gear console they want to get something this noon and stuff, and these things only gonNA come down in price. So to me the market for the series S is. Why definitely have to buy a playstation because I want to get those games and if Playstation maybe I'll get the best one because I don't know what's going on the cheaper one about they're going to do there. And so if I've done that I still kind of want an xbox because I'm thinking about getting this Xbox game pass thing because he all these games on it. But I don't want to have to big ass consuls my living room saw the the cheaper xbox. I'll get the cheaper xbox to play Xbox Game Pass Games, and then I'll get the more expensive PSI to be like my main console that I get like my kick ass four K. stuff on it is. So blindingly clear which one of you has a child in which one doesn't. Just putting. Very obvious. How your perspectives shifted. Like I would say game passes Tom to your point you the game passes the thing here right? Like, yeah. If this is a Fox for your second TV or your kids TV, then what you need is a cloud gaming service. They can address all the xboxes right. And if you don't have a disk, doesn't matter because all the Games on the cloud anyway and you're just moving licenses around and maybe you're going to get to to streaming games in this thing, will be able to stream the games right like. You kinda see where they're going is these are just sort of client units for an xbox service with different GPS. Yeah. Exactly. It's different. Slight different economic you a bunch of specs and people who've been tweet me thousand times a minute this week. But you can argue a bunch of stuff to the essential differences between the two is the once targeting Larry's Lucien Melissa's and TV's and the EVA's talkative. Okay. Like that. That's that's basically the basic gist of the if you were really simplifier. And I think the cheap one is really gonNA appealed to the experts getting pulse market. Like that. Is Probably the best for you and gave me right now like I. Think it's very. Apple, arcade. Lately, just added a play or that it didn't add it to base expos game policies to the almost see have to you have to pay the all of the xbox names are bad and confusing. And then there's the P. C. There's the version that you can also play it on PC, which now costs more, right yes. Let's give me ten bucks a month by feel like that's I mean if you experts came all that covers you on anyway. So feel like you just. Denies. People go for the old anyway I think. So you've got the the series as the that will call the ten ADP model because I think it's functionally what it is even yeah basically forty nine. To Ninety nine, the series x, which is the four K. high refresh rate. Refrigerator refrigerator model. Model model is four ninety nine, which is actually still very aggressive and my mind and just based on what can do and then experts expensive. The Ninja xbox Game Pass Ultimate Yep is twenty five bucks a month in. Fifteen a month. But if you pay more and then you get a box out of it to write for twenty four months, you you you pay the subsidize. It's like a phone plan. Basically you get you pay a little bit more and then you a paying down your hardware and installments and it's basic. Tech Industry only has one business model which is. And T. in two, thousand and four. Yeah. But right. But that's a killer deal right that she ended up paying less over the twenty four months than you would. If you bought them separately right when you can get either right for the Yup can get the X. which I think is four, nine, nine a month I think. Five month or twenty five, the S. I I see that I'm like I'm just GonNa. I'm just GONNA, X.. Whatever like I am going to do the dumb starbucks, which is it's three coffees Erlich whatever. AM. And that is just a brilliant move for Microsoft, right? Yeah. Basically make an expensive thing seemed cheap even as maybe in the end, it's only slightly cheaper than buying everything out right?

"sonia" Discussed on The Axe Files with David Axelrod
"The axe files with your host David. axelrod. One of my favorite episodes of all time was a conversation. I had with Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor for my X-files TV? Show two, thousand, eighteen, a daughter of the South Bronx Justice. Sotomayor has one of the great and inspiring stories of anyone I know in public life. Here's that conversation. Just A, my are so good to see you again. Good to be with you. It's always wonderful to see David I was telling you before that I found your book, your biography, your memoir, absolutely riveting and honest and powerful, and now you've written two more books derivative of it. For Young People I. Want to talk to you about that I can't wear in this room this conference room at the supreme. Court surrounded by portrait's of the chiefs who have presided over the court and I just wanted to spend a couple minutes on. The moment that you think the court is in now we just came through this. I know you guys are sort of cloister. You're not cocooned. We. We came through this acrimonious process of of confirmation. How do you view it from the inside I mean, how's the court and family community adjust to those moments? I'm GONNA, steal a line from one of my colleagues Laurie actually not align. And it was justice, Thomas. Who tells me that when he first came to the court, another justice approached him and said. I judge you by what you do here. Welcome. And I said, and I repeat it that story to justice cavenaugh when I first greeted him here. Now I've known him before. So I have known him. I've known about his work. But when you're charged with working together. For most of the remainder of your life. You have to create a relationship. The nine of us are now a family. And were. With each of our own burdens in our own obligations to others. Aaron families, but this is. Our work family. And it's just as important as personal family. We probably spend more time with each other than most justices spend to have spouses with their spouses rise. The spouses probably can attest can probably attest. But but beyond the your personal relationships, as as this moment in history, do have a concerns about how people view the court because of the partisan ization of everything. Is a concern obviously to the extent that were citizens. and. All of us have a passion about this country. And about our constitution and our system of government. that to all of us is critically important. I. Think. Many of us feel that what people perceive as partisanship is eroneous Think about it, David. There are thousands and thousands of cases that come through the federal system every day. Ninety five percent of them are resolved in the district up on the trial level on district court level. Only five percent of those cases repealed. Now, it's not to suggest that some of the winners aren't. Dissatisfied. They didn't win enough or that some of the losers feel that the system was fair. But that means that the vast vast vast majority of people. Have Gone through our judicial system and accepted its judgment. Only. Five percents get appeal. Of the Court of Appeal cases in their thousands and thousands of thousands of them. We only hear about sixty to seventy cases in recent years. And anywhere. It's been as high as forty to seventy percent of the cases. Are decided almost unanimously. There is certainly a percentage of cases that are not. And we have our our share of five to four decisions. But is it partisan? Or is it because as I believe? We approached additional decision making. In, different ways. Judges are given a toolbox. So th interpretive tools. And with it, we come to our conclusions. If, you build a house with one to it looks one way. If you pick a different to. It looks another way and that's what happens and so that the political parties have aligned themselves. With certain of our judicial approaches. We can't. Control. We have no ability to tell them. You're sort of mixing apples and oranges. Hours away is a way of interpreting the law and looking and building on a precedent than on our interpretive principles. and I'm satin that they are viewed as partisan in that way. But. I. Don't think it's a fair judgment. Of what the court does everyday. Surely, you know that you're this court is going to be probably for the duration of your. Tenure on the court, a conservative court. I don't know what that word means. conservative-liberal those political, terms. Do I suspect that A. I. Might be dissenting a bit more. possibly. But I still have two relatively new colleagues. One very new colleague breath, Taverna and Neil Gorsuch, and we've agreed in quite a few cases we've disagreed in a bunch at least which Justice Cavanaugh. With Justice Gorsuch, but you know, let's see. You You told a group, I, think at your Alma Mater at Princeton. In two, thousand, seventeen that there was a, there was a point in the process. Of, confirmation that you, you questioned whether you wanted to continue because of just some of the things that the ugliness of of the process and you said if this press is going to result my getting this to the Supreme Court of diminished person, is it worth it? Now, your friends talked you out of that For good reason, a point of view, but it does speak to the nature of the process. It's a, it is by definition especially in the modern era, a very rough process it is. It wasn't the process for most of the history of the United States. This public questioning system. Only started about nineteen. Nine hundred seventy s before that, there was a long period of American history. Where candidates, applicants, whatever word you want to use for? What women-asia nominations, nominees words even questioned by the Senate at all a senator would would convey the president's nomination speak on behalf of the nominee, and then opponents would say their piece in there be a vote that's as simple as the process started out. It's gotten more elaborate with time. Some of it is the product of.
New Yorkers Allowed To Apply For Global Entry
"Governor Cuomo now threatening to sue the Trump administration's Homeland Security Department for kicking New Yorkers out of trusted traveler programs like global entry earlier this year. That ban was lifted yesterday. Governor Cuomo says the band never should have been there to begin with. Because New York wasn't the only state with green light laws, which allow drivers to get licences regardless of immigration status, He says it's impossible that the D H s didn't realize that until now is impossible. Because I have said, is 480 times Everybody knew there were other states with green light laws. And so for New York to have been the only state whose residents were banned from the program, aimed at reducing wait times for international travel was purely political. According to the governor. The Justice Department now says the D H s did make inaccurate or misleading statements as it fought to keep the band they got caught. It was all politics all the time. It was all exploitation all the time. The D H S says it lifted the ban and dropped its opposition because New York agreed to share DMV information for those trusted travelers. Homo says he agreed to that back in April. Sonia Rincon, 10. 10 wins news.

Russia votes on referendum to allow Putin to stay president until 2036
"Russians are donning mast today to cast their votes in a nationwide referendum that will determine whether Russian President Vladimir Putin can stay in power until 2036. While many Russians are growing tired of Putin one recent polls showed his approval rating at a record low of 59%. Early voting shows, 76% of Russians have voted yes, on today's raft of constitutional amendments that will, among other things, allow Putin to stay in any event. The new constitution has been printed and is already on sale. For more. We have Sarah rains for BBC Moscow correspondent who joins us from Moscow via Skype, Sarah. I said they're donning masks are then are they turning out in numbers? What's the scene there? They're definitely putting massive Sonia and in fact people come without master handed masks and gloves. They get a temperature check is well at the entrance to the polling stations that we've seen on the inside or the election. Officials have got on protective clothing as well, because obviously this is taking place in the midst of a pandemic. But it's also clear. I think that the criminal really wants to push ahead with this. You mentioned I suppose his approval ratings being falling. I think people don't expect things here to get an easier politically or economically. So certainly I think criminal wanted this vote in the bag and it is very much I think about that opportunity for Vladimir Putin if he chooses when this current Monday runs out in 2020 for running for president two more times if he wants That's something that thing is really dividing the voters here in Moscow, which is quite interesting. What is that showing up there, because, as we said the constitution's already been printed, it's on sale, 76%. Of Russians in the early voting. Voted Yes. Is there a sense that this is a free and fair election? While the opposition would say no, Certainly a prominent opposition figures of voices have been calling this a fast right from the beginning. In fact, running is a constitutional coup. They've been publishing photos for the past week. This vote spread out over a week showing people pop up polling stations, voting in parks and adventures and even at a car trunk on one occasion. So this thing you know, this is not a proper vote, And in fact, the interesting thing is, yes, The Constitution has already been published. It's already been approved by Parliament. In actual fact, this popular votes didn't have to happen. But Vladimir Putin himself that he wanted it because he wants, I think social backing popular backing for these reforms, a whole package of reforms, which kind of encapsulate his vision of Russia, socially conservative. Patriotic, nationalistic Russia. But also, of course, has that key clause in it, which would allow him to run a game staying power 2036 But I was saying you know about the mood of the polling station is interesting. I polled 20 or so people here More people were voting against them for is about 12 against eight in favor. Eight or real Patriots Real Poo. Tonight's 12 of them. Some of them are saying, This is a sad day for democracy. They've had enough of Vladimir Putin. I don't want him to stay in power. So this is Moscow. It's different to the rest of Russia is more progressive. Perhaps more liberal on opinion here seems to be at least this polling station against the
"Girded Loins" - How Will The Supreme Court Rule?
"I wanted to talk a little bit about the Supreme Court. Because I. Kind of always WanNa talk a little bit about the Supreme Court, but also because it's been really. It's been a real roller coaster ride for the last. Year or so everybody went in thinking that the liberals would get just pommelled and that America's social progress would get set back fifty years, and in some ways you not. Everything has been a win for sure I. Don't WanNa pretend that everything has been a win. There have been some surprising wins like last week on the day. That show came out the supreme. Supreme Court ruled that the trump's attempt to extinguish. DACA was unconstitutional. He didn't do it the right way so Daca. Lives we had neil gorsuch coming through and saying that the Civil Rights Act title seven covers the rights of lgbtq Americans when it comes to employment. Yep, but we still have one that's Kinda hanging over us like the sword of Damocles. And that is a. that's an abortion case out of Louisiana. Alyssa. What do you think is going to happen with the case? It might come down tomorrow. It might come down next week because the supreme, court loves to wait and save the big cases for the end. What do you think's GonNa Happen? Erin. I'd be lying if I said I knew if I even had an inkling that I think that Neil, gorsuch was going to SORTA. Come through or that. John Roberts we don't know like I. Guess My problem is I. Don't have the brain of a supreme. Court justice and I could never be one. Which is why I didn't go to law school. Because what's the point if you can't ultimately be a? Supreme Court Justice One day, but it's like I. Worry I worry that they've done these things sort of I think by following the letter of the laws they they believe it should be interpreted and I'm like. ARE THEY GONNA? Be like well and buy them. I mean the republic. We know how old Brett's GonNa. Go breads just he doesn't even need to show up for the for the hearing I mean he can just put that Shit on mute and play brick. But the others you're like, are they just? Are they going to be like? Wow, if we. If we are. Are we really going to Piss? Trump off like it's GonNa fire US court justice. If we don't if we don't give do him a solid here and set women's rights back thirty years. So I, don't I? Don't know I know what's going to happen. Yeah I. Mean I try not to get excited because you know one hand. There's no words no way to get excited, but there's also being in a state of having my loins just constantly go ahead. Is a little exhausting I really want to. I. Really Want to live in a world were John Roberts can. Be The deciding vote and in and write an opinion. He admonishes the Fifth Circuit Court for even trying to step to him right by deliberately directly confronting Supreme Court ruling from two thousand sixteen. But in two thousand, Sixteen Roberts was on the side of keeping the trap block question in place. I. Don't know what's going to happen and I'M Just I just get it over with I. Just wanted to know I. Just want to tell us. It's suspense we don't need. Yeah Yeah I just WanNa read Sonia Sotomayor's either concurring opinion or fiery descent. She has been really writing some interesting stuff this term. And I just really want to know you know. We have. We've affirmed the LGBTQ people are people. With amazing Yes docker recipients, also people I'm really excited to learn if women are also people less negative crazy. I know get crazy.

You're getting to know each other, but we had our dinner I very i. only dinner we ever. Weren't were in public together until we announced I was coming to facebook, obviously went, will well yes well. We actually stayed so late. The restaurant was kind of closing down.

"sonia" Discussed on The TED Interview
"So are there lessons that we can learn from past pandemics about what works? I mean obviously Europe in. Let's say the sixteen hundreds when the plague is is floating around was was was kind of resource poor and certainly understanding. Are there lessons? We can learn from our from our ancestors or or at least mistakes we can kind of avoid. I think I think more the latter and the stakes wide I think about sort of color in the nineteenth century when it came to New York and it took you know they had evidence that caller was coming down the canal. Coming down the Erie canal coming down the Hudson River into Manhattan They Ha. They collected all that evidence. We've mapped it out in. It's like so clear if you look at it today. In retrospect right They knew that the water was contaminated with human waste. They knew that would make them sick. There's just all these opportunities to actually solve this problem. But they never did. And they had eight years of epidemics where thousands and thousands of people New Yorkers would die and they're just terrifying pandemic epidemics. Like what we're seeing today But in the end you know when they finally did clean up the water and collared disappeared for good. It wasn't for public health because Brewers wanted better tasting water for their beer they felt they were at a competitive disadvantage because Philadelphia ahead had institute had had cleaned up their water supply. Though you know it so much is GonNa depend on the stories. We tell a ballot these diseases. You know. Think about cholera in London. Also and they you know because they thought that cholera is a problem of asthmas which were Basically bad smells dough. They wanted to get rid of the bad smell. So they installed flush toilets or what they called water closets but since they only cared about the smell you they installed the flush trailer because they didn't want the smell of human waste around their homes in alleys because they thought the smell would make them sick so they started installing selling flush toilets get rid of all the staff you know get rid of the smells but since all they cared about was the smell in the contents they dumped into the river tens which was of course. They're drinking water supply and so after. Every outbreak of cholera they installed more flush toilets down more of their waste into the drinking water and made it know progressively worse. Don't so much depends on how we sort of characterize the disease like we characterize this disease as as you. Some political leaders have done a Chinese virus. You know then. Then what becomes I response responses in? Okay well we should like laser borders and trade. You know or or do we or do we think of it as a problem of will too. Many people are traveling. Let's see let's shut that down or do we think of it as you know. People Are Invading Wildlife Habitat. Let's start conserving wildlife habitat. So that doesn't happen you know. There's there's all of these things all of these epidemics are multifactorial. There's more than one you know. There's a lot of pieces that come together. Though ultimately stories we tell our are going to be really influential in the actions will take after this pandemic Ns. It's a cultural piece where we just need to get. The brewers involved in that America will take action. What it looks like Whitney has a question and this is this is fascinating and we have Some questions coming in from the audience One of them is about your point about this being multifactorial thinking about the climate crisis. And how and why might that make infectious disease outbreaks more common? Yeah so I mean the thing about climate changes it's GonNa have a diverse effect on infectious disease epidemiology. In some places they'll be more opportunities for pathogens to spread certain pathogens spread in other places there might be less. Malaria is a good example of that where malaria is carried by mosquitoes. Of course if you had say. Climate change means more precipitation in a place. Maybe that would mean that there'll be more puddles around so they'll be more reading aries from -squitoes and so that could mean that there will be more malaria or there could be more malaria. But it also could mean that there'd be more flooding and if there's more flooding than that would wash more mosquito eggs away and so you'd have less mosquitoes and so then. You might have less malaria around to the the impact is going to vary but I think the main thing is that The opportunities for transmission are going to change so when disease happens in new places. That's that's what we're GONNA see. His disease happening a new places meaning populations that haven't had those experiences before going to be having diseases and that's we know because of immunity. When something's new to you you'll get more sick to overall. I think the impact will be a higher burden of disease from infectious from infectious pathogens. Even as in some places there might be less you know less of this one disease and more more somewhere else on but the other factor is just wildlife is moving you know. Climate change is already scrambling migration patterns of people and also wildlife about eighty percent of the species that have been tracked are actually moving. They're shifting their ranges to maintain their what they're used to in terms of the climate and that's really good. That's what we want that. That's going to help them survive. But it also means that wildlife in human populations are GONNA come into new kinds of contact in those areas too And so we don't know how that's going to kind of play out in terms of infectious disease risks but certainly that will that will also play a role. Thank you I'll be back to their questions and I'd love to remind our audience online that you can lead questions chat function. Which is that little. Talk bubble on the upper right hand side of of your window. I'll be actually so it. Sounds like we gotta bring into the Wildlife Trade for one thing but let's Let's turn to Maybe a more more hopeful subject. How does this? How does the pandemic end based on You know examples from the past. And what what? What would you point to what will be the initial signs? And and what are the quickest things to to to end? I mean I think here in the in the US and it'll be we'll once are hospitals can manage the number of cases that becomes severe On a on a sort of steady basis than will be able to relax some social distancing and will probably have to have in German. You know social distancing a little bit here and they're kind of coming and going but the way the way I see it is like you know we're we're in the steep first-wave and it's the most violent and difficult part of this process of sort of a new pathogen tearing through a susceptible population but as it proceeds more more of us are going to become immune because we'll have had it or you know some of us will perish from it. Of COURSE WE'RE GONNA lose people but most of us are going to be able to have it recover or wait until there is a vaccine and then have exposure so you know we look at measles coming into North America. I think about that a lot and how violent that was. That was just such a such a violent confrontation and change history entirely But then after those first ways that are so deadly measles then becomes a disease of childhood and we see that with malaria too. Which is you know an ongoing catastrophe that malaria killed so many people every year. This is something. We've known how to prevent entirely and cure with drugs or hundreds of years on still now thousands and thousands of babies dive malaria every day every year and this has been going on year after year after year. But in places where there is a lot of malaria. Malaria is a disease of childhood. So if you can survive those first. An episodes of malaria before year. Two years old. Then you'll you can live in a malaria society lawyers. GonNa kill you much less likely to be able to kill you because you've acquired immunity to. It's I started seeing as the process of slowly getting sunburned that turns into a Tan. You have to go through the pain of that instead of get to this level where like okay you can kind of withstand it And that'll be supplemented hopefully with vaccines to that. Not so many of us have to experience the actual like Archbishop of having to survive this pathogen. Would what does it look like so you? You talked about the cholera epidemic. In Haiti what does it look like? When when life returns to normal or does it? Does it ever return to normal? Are we typically kind of transformed As a society post pandemic. I think that's what's been so frustrating about writing about infectious diseases for all these years is that things don't change enough after we have these. You know I mean that's sort of the the deep lesson I learned. His people societies undergo these horrible epidemic sitter so disruptive and so deadly and we turn against each other and your corrupt governments can take advantage of it in their secrecy. All these things happen and it's it's very negative in a lot of ways but we come out of it which is bounce right back right back to business as usual and that's why pathogens are so successful in the end it's because we don't change our behavior we keep doing the same things and therefore they keeping. They're able to continue to exploit our our behaviors. You know I think we're getting to a point. Now though that with this pandemic in particular where business as usual has been stowed disruptive that. I think there's going to be a lot more political will to actually get to the root causes of why we're so vulnerable to these new pathogens and what we can. What can we do to prevent them? And there is a lot of things we can do to minimize the risk of pandemics. So that's a beautiful segue. What are what are the things we can do to minimize the risk? Well so one of the things I talk about my book is that you know what I tried to what I tried to show. How a microbe turns into a pandemic causing pathogen. So starting from its environmental reservoir happy beneficial in its own environment Nakazawa disease for anyone. And then slowly adapts to the human body and becomes this very disruptive pathogen so so I wanted to look at that whole story and what I learned is that we really know how that process unfolds. We know a lot about how that process unfolds. Don't what that means is while we can't tell which microbe is going to cause the next pandemic since we know how it happens. We can predict where it's most likely to happen So you know. Infectious disease models have come up with Hotspot nats basically a map of the world where places where there's a lot of invasion of wildlife habitat. There's a lot of intensification of like factory. Farming a lot of slums lot flight connections. You know these are the drivers of Microbes TURNING INTO PANDEMIC CAUSING PATHOGENS. And so there's hot spots around the world and in those places we can actively surveillance for microbes.

It's not GonNa you know we're not going to catch up but you can actively look for microbes that might be changing. You know might be evolving in certain ways and they do that through various sampling techniques looking at blood samples or scat from wild animals or taking blood from farmers bushmeat hunters like people kind of on the front lines of interacting with microbes in this way and really look and see which ones are changing..

"I'm number three's violent by Barcelona love. What I'm talking about this, why we wanted her on the show and we couldn't get together to. Llerena featured artists of the week. Yeah. Wow you guys are so. Go. So tell us more about this violent water. Yes. So you're actually watching the Youtube Video I. Think you were you were watching it right I heard how amazing it was an honestly actually. that. Is Very stylized. And that's I mean. That that is not a low budget. Yes. So actually. The filmmakers that I worked with did do it on a very low budget but they're just so talented that they are like high grade level filmmakers So but at the time you know they just we worked so well together because it was like I, needed a music video the kind of needed a project to do that would be like as exposure for their style of filmmaking and then it just kind of worked. They like everybody in the community I think now knows. Of Desert cactus productions and many of the musicians in town probably want to work with them like they should because they are amazing and so a little bit more about violent water it's a music video where I am a mermaid and I saving some sailors, lives and fighting monsters and everybody in that music video is a part of the Vegas community and is a creative. So down to like the backdrops like you see, clouds and the ocean and stuff Under it gets crazy. So somebody had to like paint those backdrops on for the green screen to be keyed out. And that artist his name is Matt Murphy. He does a lot of mural work around town as I think it's black fifty seven or just black in general. So you'll see if you might you might see some of his murals and they just say black that's him. But yeah, he did a lot of the artwork in that music video it was kickstarter funded and Yeah it's just a it's so special to me. Because, the community really did come together to make this happen and it really wouldn't have happened without them. So I'm very grateful because now it opened up doors for a lot of my friends and opened up doors for me to make farsight and wonder fest It's just one of those things where you realize if ask and you shall receive I love that story because I I feel like that is the epitome of. The Las Vegas Vegas community like I I feel like you just ask yeah yeah a lot of people are. Are afraid to ask like think there. And maybe in other communities like people here, don't bother me like like I don't have you gotta pay me or whatever. But it's not in Vegas. Nah. Vegas will volunteer people will come together and help artists and like one of our own just like it's amazing here. It's a growing community that I think that other people don't consider. But I think we're going to be a community that is going to rival like Los Angeles or New York eventually because we have we're so international and that's what I love is this just like a melting pot and everybody comes from everywhere and we are the entertainment capital of the world. So we have like top notch people for you know we do. A lot of them are laying low key you know the the best and Here's the thing like because the model or the the slogan is already entertainment capital of the world. We can't take the city that never sleeps away from New York because Fuck New York New York. Hey. Do I mean like I've been to New York I've been to Boston I've been to the L. A. been like these major cities. They sleep, you know especially gasoline. Biggest. It's not sleep vegas really the city that never sleeps sleep, but we can't. We can't like give us all of the slogans. No No. Yeah. That's what happens here. What. Happens. Yeah, that's Day. Only happens here and it's true. You know you can't. You can't be played. You know. Getting the community to work on a music video together Put all their effort into it as it was their own. That's what that's what I. Loved about the experience that it really showed me like how wonderful and giving up people are in this town, and if somebody says, otherwise, it's just kind of funny to me because I'm like you just haven't found or like maybe just you haven't gone out to see it. That is the truth. Absolutely like like when people say Oh Vegas. These are people that move here thinking like Oh like I'm just GonNa come and take advantage and like like like get. Away because they don't get it. Yeah. Yeah and there have been those instances where it's like. You. Just, we we don't have. I feel like we don't have that vibe of like I compete with you and I'm going to win in all this stuff. It's like it's not about that because we are smaller and everybody pretty much knows about everybody if you're doing something you know and so can get away. Yes. Yeah. It's just it's. It's a really good community of people who want to help each other grow and also I think we have that underdog vibe where we do want to prove to other like. or at least in my opinion I wanNA make stuff that puts Vegas on the map and music video is a part of that journey. Love it. You Know is this the Golden Knights. Story right like this. Always Vegas and Yeah. So I'm glad that you enjoyed it. Yeah I love it. All right.

"Yeah. It was a massive change. They, they of take advantage of tourism and that way. But I mean as they should soda so. Because we were bags, we're like we're not gonNA pay the thousands or I forgot what that translates. So like thirty bucks would be I don't know three hundred rupees. Yeah, and so we were like I am Chris University thank you very much in. Asia. We went in there for essentially three. Amazing. And then all our friends were. Just, they were so pissed that we did that. Rose the best part of your study abroad in. I think. It was everything. It was a dream come true for me because I wanted to travel. So I got everything that I wanted and the friends that I did. So I still have those friends close to me like the friend that I went into the Taj. Mahal. For like three dollars she lives in Ohio. Yet, her name is Layla and She is not ethnically she is from. No kind of she's Brown but she she speaks Arabic where Yemen she's from Yemen. But like she ended up in in in Ohio while she was originally from Ohio. Yeah Oh. Yeah. So it's crazy enough how all these circumstances aligned were. I was filming violent water, which was the single that you talked about in the Jumbotron and I made this kickstarter funder to to essentially fund this awesome music. Video where I'm mermaid, it's it's pretty crazy anyway. So it worked out 'cause like she was traveling to Vegas for some particular reason I forget why not to visit me so that I mean she would have visited me but it I wasn't the main reason and we were filming that weekend and I was like, oh. My God do you want to be in the music video? So she's like randomly in the music video. Special, yeah, it's so special to me because she is. She's known me since like basically the beginning of my guitar singer. Writer Journey. Ask. Your friends for life. Yeah. Inference for light that you met study abroad in India and they ended up in a video and it's just so surreal when things like that happen. To or she was a ferry ghost look underwater ghost. Yeah. You're. Okay so I come back to America and I have this really like a big sense of urgency to find whatever it is I'm supposed to do because in India you just realize that you have so much going for you in America like there's no reason for anybody to complain when they're here like that that that was my mindset. Why are people complaining they should be grateful for having a life. Of these Americans don't know how. When you go to another country, you know essentially a developing one year like, yeah and you come back you realize, oh, man, we haven't great here off throwing food away. Yeah. American thing that I. That works me. The most is when people don't finish their food. Yeah that's such. An Asian thing. Yeah it is, and because you never know when you're gonNA eat next right so but yeah. So I came back to America and what I immediately started doing doing was just volunteering. So. I volunteered to help somebody do some food stuff for photography stuff. Some other things I wasn't really good at these things were just be like we need somebody to help out doing these things I was like, okay sure. I have no job. I might as well just like do these things and see what I like and randomly I ended up My friend came to tell he. He's the one who I taught me my first guitar chords and he was like, why don't we go to an open mic and I was like Oh God like. I don't WanNa do the he found out that I was making little tunes on a ukulele music. Why don't you perform in front of a crowd now and I had like crazy stagefright? It was awful. It was so bad that I would sweat and forget all my lyrics. Bad so that he was just get some liquid courage and you and I and I at the time I thought that was a great idea and I wasn't really a drinker. So like Sherp. Down like some I don't know you are a lightweight but you like doing shots. or Yes. So then I go up, they call my name and then I literally this if this was being filmed. So. So this is somewhere yet does you can find me in pigtails and a red. Stripe. It was awful and I, blinked out on both the songs supposed to know and I was sweating really bad and I got off stage and that was. Performance that's where those original songs or just some. Yeah. Yeah. Yes. So but these were original songs that I had no intention of showing anybody. But facebook because at the time you were just send like your friends videos. Okay. Songs friends who are far away and my. Making songs that you were just writing poems assuming. So in India it was like one of those things were I had a guitar and my friends would crowd around and we would just start saying random words and I would make melodies. Guitar So my friend before India my friend was teaching me some cores but I was really bad. I wasn't taking any of it seriously but since I had so much time in India, that's when I started practicing more and just having fun with a and just singing random tunes. Around, yeah. Yeah. So it's nothing serious like when you go, let's make a melody and then it becomes a thing and I don't know when did you realize that you? Can Sing Yeah because like. Rolling and I have tried to make melodies right messing around messing around. Our free. Time. Yet. Yet were not singers. Yeah. Honestly I, will I never thought of myself as a singer because my voice was so squeaky back then and Squirrelly it was awful. I didn't. WanNa call myself a singer maybe more like a song writer but back then I hated my voice it's taken a long time for me to be able to listen to my own voice and it's it's been a long time that's probably recently like. Maybe the past couple of years I've been okay with my voice. That's a very common thing for people especially like that that are performing and listening to themselves. It's hard for me to listen to podcasts. 'cause I can't stand this always in a lot of people can't either. Wow look. In Studio, you can follow her on Instagram at art of Sonia Sonia with a Ni- yes. So new open is Sonia. Barcelona. So thank you for having me. Your here. You know I mean you know who's not. You know WHO's not here. We know Alexis here. Is.

We need more of that in the world and if I can make my part of the world better that's school so Let's bring it back all the way to the verb, where were you born and then let's let's talk. This all came about. So I was born in Guam I have. Sold out okay. says the it was the only Guam sweater I can find Oetzi. Wasn't. Really hard to get stuff shift from actual. It's like, oh, countries of dollars. From A. Yeah So I was born in Guam and then my mom would she found out that she was pregnant with me. She wanted to move to the mainland or to the states because she wanted to raise me somewhere better or like it was just it's a tiny island. She wanted me to be like around more people. And then she moved to Las Vegas. So that was the beginning of me. And? Yeah. That's the. Biggest in Vegas since my mom moved here and I was like. To I was really really young. did. Do you still go back to Know the tickets by sweater are sane. But if I could tore there and I was invited to play, they're totally would we do have some Guam listeners about the way. Up Your local radio stations. Relieved to that, your mom really went opposite like a tiny island to the desert began. She misses it. So she's this small four foot ten Filipino lady and yeah. I think at the time she was just thinking of how the island feel is really great but. There's more opportunities in universities and schools in the mainland. and. So that's why she moved here and also there's casinos. So they at that time they were hiring so many people I think that attracted her here to a job and everything. So I don't think she would've chosen a desert, but it just kind of worked out it just worked out. Yeah. So when when did your love for music began? I would say pretty late. Talented in anything artistic because I was doing the stereotypical Asian route. On which is Nursing Nursing. Doctor. Lawyer Odd Dancer Man's. Jabber walkies. Hey what everyone wants. Still.

Let's go back to the morning of February ninth. Two thousand six. It was a cold February morning in the Salt Lake City suburb of Taylorsville barely. In the mid twenties.

"So you can get new episode every week. Aw Patrol. Did you ever get any really hair raising high high speed pursuits. You had to have at least one right. Well you know I have to say my pursuits were generally because I was backing someone else up. I wasn't big on chasing cars. 'cause I was always afraid you organ and accident somebody get hurt but We have plenty of those especially in silver spring. There was something about that beltway. The everybody wants jump up on it and you know we were right behind him so you know actually. That's an exciting part of being a police officer license sirens. If we're true to ourselves with we have to admit that and and your adrenaline starts pumping when you're actually going lights and sirens. You know y'all out it gets you pumped up there. You're you're alert. You're you're at a different level of alertness you're at a different level of concern for your own safety for the own safety safety of everyone else. That's on the road and you sometimes don't know why this person's running that you're chasing La Times you don't well and then we have policy surrounding that. Sometimes you just need to stop If if you've got a tag number or you know who the suspect is you know you might want to call that one. Because you don't want anyone getting hurt especially innocent bystanders drivers now you went to work in one of the most difficult difficult parts of any police department. And that is internal affairs and internal affairs where you have to investigate the actions in in conduct of your fellow police officers in any department and it's one of the toughest jobs to do. Isn't it. Yes it is very tough. Tell us about your experience into a and I when I was internal affairs. I my role was as deputy director. I was lieutenant so my job was to Mon.. My primary jobs or responsibilities was to take a look at the complaints as they came in to determine whether they had validity or not to determine termine whether this should go to investigate with in in our in our division If it was something like brutality or a discrimination complaint it would stay in house else more serious complaints state in house and was investigated by a sergeant The lesser complaints may be a courtesy or officers speeding speeding would be given to the the appropriate division or district officer speeding like okay so explain what what would that entail. A A an officer was speeding on duty or off duty. Or if you're in a Mark Cruiser and someone sees you going over the speed limit they may they call in report you report. Yes and then I ate has to investigate that. Well we have four decide whether what we do is just we would give something like that to the district acres to a division and say. Hey you know this is this is a complaint they came in you might want to whatever they do at that level. You know have conversation or you need to do your investigation education. Determine what you're GONNA do with that so you may call the district commander over Three D. and say. Hey We got this complain about. Oh Mail hell okay. And and what was the most challenging case or incident. You had to deal with as a supervisor in a is the one case that comes to mind that that was just kind of a gut wrenching experience. We're not allowed to talk about our cases in internal affairs. We have policy. See that prevents us from doing that. But what I can say is I think the most challenging piece to being a in my role in internal affairs was twofold. When you have someone complain on an officer and you find out that's not what happened because you look their body camera or you had a conversation with someone involved and then you have to explain to the person complaining? Well that's not quite what happened and sometimes it. It doesn't go over well and then on the flip side of that is when you see something that you feel is egregious enough that it does need to be looked at and investigated by us. That's hard Because at the core of me is still the police And we don't want to see our fellow officers officers Put in a situation where they have to defend themselves but sometimes you do have to defend yourself and your action l.. Would like to give a shout out to the internal affairs. It was the place that I think I learned the most about the police department. And how it operates. Yeah in terms of everything. The a whole picture to the politics the relationships and it was very very valuable It it was. Pop is probably the best assignment that I've had as a police officer. Now you're probably went through a consent decree at one point it dealt with racial profiling things of that nature. Explain what that was all about. Well I you know that was earlier on in my career. If people don't know what what a consent decree is is is is the Department of Justice will take a look at your police department based on what could be complaints from the public. You know any number of things that they will take a look at your department. They're looking for how you do business in terms of the public. How are you affecting the public? And in more specifically civically maybe civil rights violations Things of that nature. And how can you change your department. So that you there's more equity for the community so so The complaints were that there was racial profiling in Montgomery County As a result of the consent decree which the Department of Justice. I I suppose determined Herman that that there could have been some validity in that a complaint We had to do as a little differently. Had to get some training in diversity training We had to collect data on our traffic stops as to the race of the people that we were stopping and what we were stopping them for I don't recall it being for me. a very troubling time. I just thought this is the way we do. Business in policing I learned later on more about consent decrees than what they actually mean so it was. It was not a bad time for me but I just knew that we were being looked at closely. I've been in the county for for many decades and I've I went through that period and I remember it I have always found Montgomery County police office to be very professional in my dealings with them and and people that I know young people I know in general but every department goes through an evolution sometimes especially big department so that was just part of the history and I think things are much better today. now you've said that black women are perfect for for policing What do you mean by that? So historically And anecdotally talking to other women like women in policing. There's a label that sometimes comes with us when we become the police. Our ability to be Fearless in our conversations may look like aggression to someone else or even rudeness Are Wanting to stand for what is right is deemed You're not loyal or you are a rat rat loyal to the black race loyal to policing loyal to policing to the to the police officers with whom you work. You may may be accused when you speak your truth. You may be accused of lying but what you're saying is true If somebody else doesn't want here doesn't make it alive right so we have a special set of circumstances and and then to make it even more challenging we. We don't have our own category but we should have you have black men so we're group with them while you have white women and we are grouped with the women but but we're our own unique kind of woman historically and traditionally we're the nurturers. We're trying to take care of everybody And so we bring that nurturing spirit to policing and I think sometimes I know sometimes it is misunderstood which is why. I think we're perfect for police and we're going to be the ones that come to the scene and try to calm everything everything not that. No one else will. But that's in our nature. Oh we gotta take care everybody. The kids the demand for the whole family. We're here what can we do to to to settle. Oh this situation without having to make an arrest or to go hands on. That's just part of at think who we are as women. Can you give me an example of a situation where your appearance and being a black female police officer helped. Really ratchet down and mitigate a bad situation Well you know. Oh I can't I can't say for sure that it was because I was a black female. It was just a guess Maybe it's just because I was a black officer many any time we will get on the scene of a of a situation and you'll hear also glad to see you And so you can only assume that as you look around and many times we are are well. Maybe not now but when I was a rookie and when I was a younger officer many times I was the only black officer on seeing so I figured okay must be because I'm black that they're saying that it and it was generally a black suspect and they wanna talk directly to you because people want to talk to someone that they think can actually relate to what they're they're they're going through especially culturally I take my being able to contribute in that way. I see as a huge plus for policing I don't see it as a negative at all and if I arrived on the scene I wanNA talk to you. I'm going to step in and see if I can help. Quell the tension. Have you found that other female police officers across all races in the city's ours. Supportive of each other in your department you had to do you come to each other with your unique challenges that you face as women and draft seen being release often myself what women have had to go through so I I began by saying it is a very delicate balance is to be able to navigate policing as a woman yes but it can be done because how how you do it is you just maintain your troops and you work towards your mission as the police department you can never go wrong if you stick to the mission of whatever your organization is And yes it is difficult and women. There are women who you can depend on. I have a core group of women that I can depend on. If if something is going on I need to talk to somebody and they can depend on me and those women are not just black women over my career. I've had help from many many people including white women so I wanNA make that clear. It's not just a black thing Achieving the rank of captain was particularly challenging. Because I didn't have anyone ahead of me in my department that I could speak to about my experiences and be mentored so I would have to call women from other departments. I have a friend who is a major in Baltimore Sheriff's departments bring on Tap Harper. I will call her and say. Hey Hey what should I do. what do you think about this and I feel like you know on the one hand. I'm I'm very proud to be the first African American female captain in Montgomery County. But really someone said to me the other day where you know you really the only there is no I until there's a second now I understand in your grandmother. One of your grandmothers was US pretty special characters. She didn't she didn't take didn't take any stuff. Yeah she was like the original national media. When I saw Medina's I know that's my grandma so my growing up and I thought this was all normal behavior for grandmothers? The mothers I had a young grandmother My grandmother had my mother when she was young. And then my mother had me when I was born. My mother was young but my grandmother.

I never remember what we decided it is what it is is the through line of the joke but we're continuing on our series and today we are talking about the one the only my Queen Mother of dragons Sonia Sotomayor perper perper that's what I what does she told me that was from what's that from what mother of Dragons Berber Oh oh no oh yeah Burnett night in it that's apparent- trump parent trap which was not what I was just doing those being like a trumpet in this is a quick sidebar. Have you ever heard the Jason Derulo Song Trumpet No our intern Huston is like nodding you know what I'm talking about it's a great Song Jason Derulo everybody should check it out and he's a he's comparing how a woman's body makes him think of trumpets every time that you get on dressed him for knees in my head this song just looking at you and drowns as Salo and the trumpet Sago all song do that on can you look at Kate producer Kate Look into the legality of me singing off-key Jason Derulo and doing the trumpets but if using it I think it's fine I think it's on you can think it that's exactly what I did I'm so talented but all day ars absolute man I should be sedated I just I just feel as though the way I feel about Sonia Sotomayor is when she walks in room there should be trumpets she does have the the presence that commands ovum for sure for sure it's literally trumpets were playing everybody would be yes of course of course of course it wouldn't be like I'm sorry can you imagine trumpets to Neil Gorsuch doesn't doesn't feel the space he doesn't feel the trial he doesn't even get like a triangle like the orange just appears although it could be like the sound of the Light Bulb when you remember his name what's that guy's name what is it Neil gorsuch meal I I go to the Supreme Court we're going to get out they're going to be like this is the trump at bed she's not coming in we cannot rescue trumpets when Sonia comes out it's good that they don't come out I mean don't they don't come out individually they come out like all at once like that I think is the thing we will find out that I think is the thing because if they came in really I would I would do that individually do you think they come on order they must come out in order of seniority oh for sure yeah or in reverse right where like John Roberts asked what are we going to find out and report back that would be so disappointed yeah I mean 'cause I mean I truly would love to meet John Roberts and talk to John Roberts but like like you know because imagine that would mean like Sonia and like Elena Kagan are coming out like in the middle and so it just tapers out into John Roberts and you're like okay let's get started no trump John doesn't get trumpets nor I mean but I don't think John Lyons Trumpet Sono The he yeah he just gets like he just gets like I don't know what does he get like a piano key like what a nice basic quartet yeah I thought duty to do which is we're going to get to know anything and now you have no idea I knew I knew that Sonia would break I knew it okay we are talking about on my art which it makes me so happy because uh simply ever I simply love her so much I feel as though if I were to make eye contact with her I would burst into flames because I don't deserve it because they don't deserve it like can you imagine looking at you know I would cry okay let's not about me and it'd be unreal like I don't get phased by famous people there are people who get phased offer sharing freak the fuck out when the famous people I don't normally do that but I feel like if I saw somebody like that I would not want to hurt by presence her dirty yeah and she's pure and I would I would dirty her that's how I feel we'll 'cause yeah and I would just be like like I just I don't know how to express like how I feel like I just want to thank you for a living and then I just know that I would somehow just like fall to my knees slowly at some point you've all speaking with Herbie like I'm so sorry I feel like I should be beneath you because I am as I am lower than you and then and then I would like offer her my sword which somehow I now have and I would pledge my sighing legions to her and then I would join her nights guard and and I would lay down my life for Sonia cupcake guard yeah and and so that's why it would be weird for because I would very much a mishandled the situation because I'm just so grateful for what the edgy so smart and I feel about almost all of them I mean I would definitely have like a moment of like I don't even know how to like talk not you right why do I have to say I would feel so self conscious literally any of them any

somebody new for the first time it was like hey I'm Arnhem lizzy hey how do you know so and so or what's your like what's Ooh well now especially that we've like she watches comic thing I know I would

"A great point and i made that point yesterday what sonia sotomayor said and her descent that you can't ignore the things that trump said on the campaign stop when he referred to the band as a muslim ban you can't refer to the president when the implied that it was about the religion of islam you want us just to look at the document itself and as you pointed out said repeatedly that obamacare wasn't attacks wasn't attacks wasn't attacks wouldn't attacks guess what the basis upon which they supreme court upheld obamacare as a tax because he's words now what about the it report the idea report numerate all these things that were said by hmo investigators and other personnel working for the fbi would a moron trumpy is we gotta stop him we will stop him and you can't use those words to discern in the tent sonia sotomayor said trump's words quote contaminated and showed impermissible discriminatory animus close quote you see what these screen court judges were differing over whether a matter of law you can take into consideration a president's words or candidates works just as the supreme court ruled as a matter of law you couldn't take into consideration obama's words even though he said macaire wasn't a tax that's about the law whether you can take somebody's words as opposed to looking at the legislation on the case of the executive order an executive order in the case of the report we're talking about intent the intent of these investigators whether or not there animus based upon their own words might have altered their judgment affected their behaviour affected the outcome that's a very different thing we're looking at rather than as a matter of law when you're looking at somebody's intent what's the best thing to look at what they say looking very evidence of bias what's the best thing to look at what they say i assume you follow the logic of sonia sotomayor you'd say that these words we're quote contaminated by impermissible discriminatory animus end of quote you following me back to trump place and so obviously numerous people we have a list of twenty five people that i actually had doing my election i had to twenty a little while ago a very excellent great talented highly educated highly intelligent hopefully genetics people i think when i was running i i put down twenty people because nothing politician i think people wanted to hear what some of my choices may be pretty effective and i think you see the kind of quality that we're looking at what you look at that list i did it i added five additional people to the list so it will be somebody from that so we have now about twenty five people boy did they ever dread this moment kennedy's a swing butter inside sometimes of the democrat so his vote is really important if you're on the left or if you're in the middle but it's terrifying people in the middle and on the left because it has potential to swing the court in different some friends say he's been thinking about stepping down and if he does that would allow president trump to make the court solidly conservative for decades if he decides to retire and their size that he would it would be a war for this court like nothing seen in the past thirty years since the nomination of robert bork was defeated and justice kennedy took his seat that's right all right terry thank you everything changes in washington retires be just seismically he is a moderate conservative so if he does that's gonna get president trump a massive opportunity to move the court further to the right for generations and democrats would basically be powerless to stop it and the issue that they're most afraid about israel v wade which was on the nation struck down every single antiabortion law in all fifty states and issue that should have remained in.
