How Many People Were Disenfranchised on Election Day?
"Cut 24. How many people were disenfranchised on 11 8 in Arizona? Will Bill Gates and Stephen Richards say that everything was perfect. It actually said it was an extremely well run election. Play cut 24. Ladies and gentlemen of the board supervisors, I was a poll worker and what I will say that I've seen is voters this cycle have, in fact, been disenfranchised because we as poll workers were not taught how to check out voters at our poll centers. And then at my poll center, where we literally had at 7 p.m. on election day, 675 people waiting in line of 675 do you know how many came in? A 150, 675 to a 150. Yet your leaders at the Maricopa County supervisors are aggressively and incessantly telling you it was an extremely well run election. That's 500 disenfranchised voters. That we know of at one polling place at one period of time. It really makes you wonder how many people in the valley wanted to vote that day. But couldn't.
Fresh update on "stephen" discussed on THE FIGHT with Teddy Atlas
"I want to, before we get into breaking down the fights and everything, I want to just say that we heard you. We heard you. What is teddy talking about right now? I had mentioned a few weeks back that I had obviously been covered. You have seen the tremendous card at the garden for ESPN and my buddy Stephen a Smith was over there and he had said, hey teddy, I want to come on your podcast. And then after we mentioned it, and it was nice enough to say that he wanted to come on the show. You people the fans, you know, you really responded. I mean, rob said that we were kind of inundated with all kinds of great, great messages saying, please get Stephen a on. So guess what? We listen, we hear, and we do. And we're going to have Stephen a on we're not sure exactly when we're going to try to do it before Christmas. Somewhere before the holidays, the next holidays hit. But going to have my man on. And I know that people are kind of looking forward to seeing that. And please, the only bad thing I feel about having Stephen a on is that people right away, they want to see us fight. You know what I mean? Already got my referee Jersey. Like right away, they want to see, okay, you're going to fight with them. Listen, I love them. And he's just, he's a guy that I buy a guy that I appreciate. And we might fight a little bit. All right, we might find it a little bit. I don't know. I'm not sure. But we're going to have him on. Not to fight, but to talk to converse, to share the brotherly love that we have. And to make you guys happy. So we'll do that. The other thing I want to mention real quick over the holidays, it actually cultivated last night, we do this on Monday, gets up on Tuesday, so Sunday Night, a cultivated Yukon, the university of Yukon men's basketball team, I had mentioned a while back then I went up to speak to the team and their tremendous coach standing early, you know, he comes from while he comes for royalty, you know, his father was iconic high school basketball courts in Jersey City that turned a high school there into a, well, he turned into two things. He actually turned it into a basketball factory for kids to get to division one basketball and get that education and get not obviously a chance to play division one. And also it tends to go into the NBA even after that. But what he really did over there was he took kids from very difficult backgrounds, tough areas, and he turned them into young men. I mean, that's really what he did. As well as really good basketball players. Well, guess what? His son, dandy is doing the same thing up in Yukon and with the same formula as his father and of course his brother too. You talk about passport royalty, his brother, Bobby was one of the greatest gods in the history of college basketball won the couple championships at duke and would have probably at least my estimation. A lot of people said to me, she probably would have went out to be one of the great NBA gods. Maybe of all time, clay frankly, but he had a horrendous car accident. Four intents and purposes probably if he wasn't as tough as he was, he probably could have would have all those should have died. I mean, it was a head on collision. They thought he was going to die. He lived not only lived. He came back and played in the NBA, which, you know, he never had the career he would have had, but it was incredible that he could come back to testament to his fortitude and to what he is. But daddy, I think right now that Danny Hurley, I know I talked to the team and I became finally with him, but I think he's the best coach Ken in college passport right now. Anyway, he's got Yukon undefeated. I think they know they just want a championship star tournament last night. They finished up in the finals last night to win it. They had beaten Alabama top rated team in the top 20 on Friday night and they won the championship last night. I think there's many more for them to come. I was really proud of them. I was just excited because I know what I know what Danny's all about. I know that he recruited these kids as basketball players, but he chose these kids for their character. And it's really shown. It really is showing. The way they play as a team, the way that their culture bowl, the way that they care about what they're doing, everything, all of it. Yeah, they know how to play basketball, but they also are learning and every day on how to be the best people they could be. And I think that makes you better prepares for play. I'm sorry. I think it makes you a better fighter too. And I think it makes you a better coach. When you actually are invested in the young people's, the benefit of them as a person or the development of them as a person, not just an athlete. Yeah, that part is huge. I get it. But also the person part. I think kids, they get it. They feel it. They can understand that. They have enough intelligence to know when somebody cares beyond the athleticism that they actually care about what they're going to become as a person. I think that's going to make a kid go to the wall for you. I really do. I think and they go to the wall for Bobby Harley. I think they're going to make it a prediction. It's early in the year. They're going to win the national title. How do you like that? How do you like that? Wow. How do you like that? All right. But they just get your bets in. They just broke into the top 20. I don't want to put more pressure on it, but look, I guess what I'm basically saying is I'm proud of them. I'm proud of what he's doing with that program that had fallen off a bit before then he got there and I just wish him luck. I stayed up late last night to watch it. It was in Oregon. It was the full night tournament, you know, the guy that Phil knight legacy Turner. Yeah, the guy that started Nike, he made a couple of dollars over there. You might have heard of Nike. You know, you might see the facilities, the facilities they have at the university of Oregon. They have probably the best facilities in the country, a uniform for every game. I mean, back when I was a kid, when I played college football, you had to give you a Jersey back so they could use it the next season. These kids have a Jersey for every single game, different uniform every game. Helmets and everything. They got more than that. My son, my son was there for scouting the Aragon football team. So he knows the facility very well. And he told me he said, dad, unreal, unreal. All you need to know is this. In the press room and in a locker rooms, they have Ferrari leather seats, okay? You need to know anything more. I don't think you need to know anything more than that. They got a pretty damn good facility. And anyway, let's go huskies. Let's go husky. Let's go day and wait in Franklin. What do we got? What do we have?
Curry, Warriors cruise to 137-114 win over Timberwolves
"Stephen Curry, Jordan Poole and clay Thompson combined to score 70 points as the warriors routed the Timberwolves one 37 one 14. Curry led Golden State with 25 points of oven rebounds in 8 assists. Pull added 24 off the bench and Thompson had 21 points going 5 of 8 from distance. This is warriors forward draymond green who had 19 points and 11 assists. I think we're starting to put it together and if we can keep building at this rate, you know, we'll be poised for a run pretty soon here. The warriors scored 47 points in the first quarter and had 86 at the half. In the loss, Minnesota's Anthony Edwards scored 26 points and Karl Anthony towns had 21. I'm Ryan Leon
Fresh update on "stephen" discussed on Bloomberg Surveillance
"Of government control. I think it's very important to try to look at the direction that China is going to invest along with that. So probably the best way to invest in China is to be very careful about which I'm speaking about equities, which equities you pick. And be pretty spry about that. But basically, we are within emerging markets more overweight the peripheral of China in China itself. Stephen back here in the U.S., if I think that there's going to be a recession next year, but I think it's only going to be shallow. Can I be attracted to some of the higher yields I'm seeing in the high yield market or is it credit risk just too much? Yes, I think well, first of all, we think investment grade looks pretty good right now. But your question is in the high yield. Remember that a lot of these companies have fairly low durations and they have fairly low prices and that's kind of moved forward. So that makes the overall capital gain on high yield pretty high. The yield is high right now, which would cover up some defaults. So we look at the high yield market as an opportunity. But want to be very wary about what within high yield mix the most sense. So picky about what you're picking there, but a lot of opportunity in that sector. So as we rotate a little bit, have rotated over the last 6 months from equity to fixed yield. To fixed income, we think it's likely that high yield could recover before the equity market recovers. Steven, just quickly here, there is this idea that we're going to have a short and shallower session. Do you push back against that? Do you think that the nature of this recession will be deeper? Do you think that it will be longer or do you think it could be long and shallow? I mean, what's the contours and how does that really affect your base case? Well, so probably our best case like it seems like everybody else is a soft landing, but if you just look at the predictions of everybody else including to some extent ourselves or the last 6 months, you have to take that with some real hesitation because things have turned out differently than predicted. So this is the most forecast recession I'm aware of. You must have lots of people talking after a session. So yeah, there's a big risk that it gets worse than that. So what it looks like at the point. But famously, very famously, you don't know who's not wearing a swimming suit until the tide goes out. So something that the fed usually tightens until something breaks. And we don't know what's out there and what might break. And could cause a much deeper recession than we have. If that is the case, fixed income is likely to outperform equity. All right, Steven, thank you so much for your time really appreciate it. Steven Dover, he's at Franklin templeton. He's a chief market strategist over there and head of the Franklin templeton investment institute at joining us via phone. With our news in New

Fresh update on "stephen" discussed on Broken Record
"So I copied the book, and we have. I'll find it. Basically, I'm pretty sure it's there. I just have to go back and look for it. Like I was thinking the other day, somebody asked me about he had a letter to the editor, which I answered these letters every week, and they wrote me about this thing where I was a falcon Lake in 1963 or 62 or something with my buddies, and we went to the dump, and we parked our car, and then the bears all came out. Because it was a dump. So there's bears all around our car and we're sitting there trying to be cool. And then we left, and then I started thinking about falcon Lake, while falcon Lake, then I said, Jesus, Springfield did a song called falcon Lake, it was an instrumental. And we recorded it, and we did it at Columbia, and it was about the time when Stephen was doing something with had known buddy miles and a few people like it was a back there, and I said, falcon Lake, I haven't heard that in a long time, and so I checked in with our archivists, and I said, what do you guys know about falcon Lake by buffalo Springfield? And they say, well, the next day I get it back. It's called an in the archives. It's called ash on the floor. For some reason the title got changed. But the original title was still in the writings. And there is a recording of it. Wow, and it's there. Incredible. So that song is in the archives. It's probably in volume one disc one or just two or something. Incredible. Yeah. The fact that it all exists is so amazing. It's blowing my mind now. Because I've been so thorough with it. And I've got a great archive as John O'Neill, our head archivist. And a really good keeper of the tapes, who is really got a good method of filing and keeping track of everything. And we keep a lot of our stuff at Hollywood vaults, and all the backup for it is in Oxnard somewhere. Just the volume of stuff over the years. It's unbelievable. So I was walking around in it yesterday. Yeah. As we were looking for some stuff. And I had this guy with me as a builder. And he's working on my model train layout with me. We're building this outdoor train layout. It's whack. So anyway, we're looking for some old pieces of train stuff. And we get in this one room and it's a room. It's about the size of shangri la, almost this whole area. It's full of boxes on shelves. Year after year after year of tapes, it's all there. Everything that I recorded. Amazing. Yeah, it's wild. I mean, you know, so when you have a memory or something triggers something that goes somewhere. If I remember that there was something good that I didn't finish or something. I can actually get to it. So cool.
Bills, Vikings and Cowboys score Thanksgiving wins.
"AP sports, I'm Mike Reeves, it was a busy Thanksgiving Day in the NFL with three games on the schedule, the bills were in Detroit to meet the Lions, correspondent Denny cap, was there and has this report. Tyler bass boots a 45 yard field goal with two seconds left as the bills hang on to beat the Lions 28 25 on Thanksgiving Day, passes heroics from 8 necessary after he missed an extra point late in the fourth quarter, which allowed Lions kicker Michael batchley to sign the game on a 51 yarder with 23 seconds left. Sometimes you do everything that you write and sometimes you just get unlucky. We got unlucky, but we have a great group of guys that support me and have my back and I was able to reset and focus on the next big. Josh Allen put bounced into position to win the game, orchestrating a 48 yard drive spurred by a 36 yard pass the Stefan Diggs. Bob Stephens was on hand to watch the cowboys host the Giants. The Dallas Cowboys rallied to defeat the New York Giants 28 20 on Thanksgiving, overcoming a 13 7 deficit with 21 unanswered points in the second half. Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy says the cowboys time of possession keyed the win. Excellent division win game we had to have and I love the fire team and really what tried to break their method. And one thing I'm talking about is controlling the ball was a big focus for us today. That Prescott threw for 261 yards and two touchdowns the Dalton Schultz, CD lamb caught 6 for one O 6, while Daniel Jones threw for two 28 in a touchdown for the Giants. In Minnesota Kirk Cousins finds Adam Thielen in the end zone with 9 34 left to give the Vikings a 33 26 win over the Patriots, it was cousins third scoring strike of the game, just a phenomenal catch by him. I thought that the way he's able to catch that football, keep his feet in bounds. It just says a lot about his ability. One of the things he does really well is his body control and he's just overall athleticism and he showed it there. A great play by him. In college football, Mississippi state gets passed almost 24 22 in college troops in top 5 action number one North Carolina and number three Kansas are winners. I'm Mike Reeves, AP sports.

Former president Trump is facing condemnation for recently hosting white nationalist Nick Fuentes, who was a guest of Kanye West and mister Trump's private club in Florida. The former president says he knew nothing about the guest at dinner. And Nick Fuentes also says he doesn't think Trump knew who he was, but the criticism of the Mar-a-Lago meeting with a man whose espoused the great replacement theory and is often spoken of white genocide is intensifying. Former vice president Mike Pence says Trump should apologize that he was wrong to give Fuentes a seat at his table. Here at The White House press secretary karine Jean Pierre weighed in. This is something that we condemn and we will continue to speak out against. Stephen portnoy, CBS News The White House. The former Secret Service agent and White House aide at the center of a dispute over conflicting accounts of former president Trump's actions during the January 6th capitol riot is scheduled to appear today before the House committee investigating the attack. The committee has tried for weeks to re interview Anthony ornato. The activities of the Secret Service around January 6th are considered among the most important final pieces of unfinished business before the paddle completes a report on its investigation. When prices go, excuse me, when prices go up, it has an impact on everything from the cost of milk to building local schools.

Unpacking the FTX Meltdown!
"I'm Stephen Miller and you were watching the aftershock the shore we bring you the latest and greatest from the world of web three. And while I know it may not seem like it's the greatest lately, we're still here to keep you updated on everything going on in the markets so that you can be an informed investor participant or builder. Of course, I am joined every single Wednesday here on the aftershock with my co host Richard Richard how are you today? You know, hanging in there. I had the opportunity to go to the Texas blockchain summit in Austin last week and I felt really good about the conversations around what's to come next because unfortunately with everything that just happened with FTX regulation is inevitable. I don't necessarily see it as a bad thing, but I do think the voices in the room that need to be discussing how to bring in regulation without stifling innovation is going to be important. And I left that conference feeling encouraged by what people who understand what's going on in the world of crypto is trying to bring forth as it relates to regulation. So I think that was probably the high points of the last week in all of the reign of negativity that is out there. But how about yourself? You know, man, I'm just over here trying to put together my album of FTX greatest hits because they just keep a comment, don't they? It is going to be a very, very difficult next few months. I can already tell,
Charlie Learned THIS Lesson From His Midterm Messaging
"Larry says Charlie, this is all your fault. You told people to go vote on election day. I blame you, shame on you. Okay, look, you got to defend yourself. Okay? I'm not trying to belabor a point here, but you got to be very precise if you're going to attack us on this. Okay? I said, I was going to vote on election day, but repeatedly we did warn on this program, and it's a learning lesson that I should have done even more and should have been more insistent that there's going to be a traffic jam on election day and we should entertain in person early voting. This is one of many clips. This is one where I did a Salem radio network event. In the valley in Phoenix, Arizona, and Scottsdale I'm sorry, trying to warn about what was coming on election day, play cut 44. But there's something I'm very worried about that all of you need to get serious about and you guys believe a difference. How many of you plan to vote on election day, raise your hands? Yeah, this is going to be a problem. Maricopa County can not facilitate all of you. I'll tell you right now. They are creating a traffic jam. And it's going to deter conservative turnout. So we got to fix it. I'm telling you right now, we are going to see three, four, 5, 6 hour waiting lines, a miracle of the county, and may solve a good year in sun city. And unless you're ready to waste 6 hours to go vote, then we got in there this time. So how do we figure it out? I'm not a fan of mail in voting at all, but in person early voting should not be discounted unless you want to wait three or four hours in line. I think we are going to see a traffic jam designed by Stephen richer designed previously by farm tests that criminal that used to be in there. And there we are. And so just, I wish I would have been more, I wish I would have repeated that even more.

How Capital Misallocation Warps Money With Steven Lubka
"It is good to see you again really enjoyed our last chat. It tends to be the way somebody comes on for the first time and you have a great conversation. So when can we get you back and when we're coming back, Danny said, we've got to get Stephen back and he's going to work on something for us. He's going to prepare an article for us. About the misallocation of money, which is right now, couldn't be more apt in terms of a topic because we are seeing the insidious impact of the mythical misallocation of the money right now. Globally, locally. Domestically, so but why did you want to tackle the subject yourself? I mean, it's a lot of what you just said, right? This is this underlying dynamic that I think is just baked into the system, baked into Fiat, baked into the way that we approach money and we approach investment and all of the financial abstractions that have been built on top of that. We just have abstractions on top of abstractions. We have derivatives on top of derivatives. And we've lost sight of what is the core purpose. What is the real purpose of money of a financial system? Why do we have a financial system? Why is finance good or beneficial? What is money do? And we've taken it to have a reality of its own that money has its own existence. And I'm going to kind of argue and kind of make layout some principles that money's existence is terrifically important. It's an incredible institution, but it's interrelated with the real world. It's interrelated with all of these other things.

Kris Jenner Prostitutes Her Daughter for Playboy
"The other day, I see this beautiful picture of Kim Kardashian when she posed for Playboy. I mean, just beautiful. Black and white pick, she's laying on her tummy, her ass is up and I mean, she look gorgeous. It was a few months after her sex tape was leaked back in 2007. And the article it turns out was about the fact that her mom was so fine with this and Kim was so easy to take off her clothes when the shoot didn't call for that. I mean, she's stripped down through a birthday suit and the guy photographed it. It was like, oh, we don't even need. We don't need what Steven waito, who's shot the best of everybody.

Arizona's Stephen Richer Ran on Election Integrity, But He Failed
"I want to get to your story here though Molly very important and I'm so glad you wrote it. Thank you for writing it. Against this really snake of a guy, Stephen Richard. You said Steven richer ran on election integrity. Now he's accused of lawbreaking and politicking. I called him an accused criminal yesterday. Tell us about it, Molly. Yeah, so Steven Richard. So first of all, Maricopa County in Arizona is the second largest voting district in the country. It contains 62% of Arizona voters. So the person who runs elections in Maricopa County is the person who kind of controls elections in Arizona. And of course, Arizona being a swing state means it's a very influential nationwide role. This guy, Stephen Richard, ran, pretending to be a conservative Trump supporting Republican. He ran multiple audits. He had no experience running on it, but he ran multiple audits on Maricopa County and the guy who was the Democrat had of elections there prior to 20 20 when Stephen Richard won and was elected on this platform that he would kind of deal with some of the shenanigans that were happening in Maricopa County. The moment he gets elected, he immediately renounces his previous positions, defends the integrity of his predecessor who's now running for Secretary of State of Arizona as a Democrat, defends the integrity of everything that happened in Maricopa County, including, you know, this is a state where millions of dollars of zuck box went into the election administration. That's where private entities took over government election offices to juice up Democrat, get out the vote operations. Richer, this guy knew that was going on in critiqued it when he was running for office, but now defends such activities.
Dinesh D'Souza: Election Denialism Runs Rampant on the Left
"Frankly, you've been over the target. I know they've come after you with a vengeance. There's been all kinds of controversy that want to shut down anybody who dares to speak to the issue of election integrity, but they sure don't want to be reminded of how all the Democrats claimed that Donald Trump wasn't the legitimately elected president in 2016. Dinesh every last one of them. I played a Montage over and over. Hillary, John Lewis, Stephen Jimmy Carter. They all said that the 2016 election was rigged, but don't you let dinesh d'souza produce 2000 mules. We got to shut that sucker down. I mean, the Democrats said that in 2004, in the bush Carey race, they said that in 2000, it was Bush who was quote selected and not elected over Al Gore. The last time the Democrats essentially conceded an election that they lost was 1988. This would be George H. W. Bush's victory over dukakis. So election denialism runs rampant on the left. That's true. What I find a little disturbing is people like Bill Barr, who tried to kind of guff on discredit 2000 mules by saying that cell phone geo tracking is not accurate and can not pinpoint mules a mule is kind of a delivery man who's delivering these fraudulent ballots to drop boxes. You can't find them by cell phone geo tracking, even though Bill Barr was head of the Justice Department, which uses cell phone geo tracking every day. The bus cases around the country. They're using it with January 6th. They use it in many other contexts. In fact, the FBI needed cell phone geo tracking to intercept Mike lindell in the drive in hardee's. He was there if they weren't tracking his phone.

"stephen" Discussed on LeVar Burton Reads
"And I get to cap it all off today with a giant of fantasy, horror, and speculative fiction. Some of the most indelible moments as a reader for me have come at the hands of today's author. Now I doubt if you need me to tell you who Stephen King is. He has written and continues to write. Some of the most popular books in American fiction. I mean, The Shining. Misery, it carry the stand, plus just dreams of short fiction. The story that I am going to read today was originally published in ten house and appears in Stephen King's short fiction collection, the bazaar of bad dreams. Available in paperback from pocketbooks and in audio format from Simon and Schuster audio. Now, I've read a couple of stories this season that in my opinion, grapple with our human desire for control in our lives. The choices we wish we could have made in the past or the choices we wish we could make in the future. I'm thinking of the wishing pool, about a woman who makes wishes that are granted, but never come out quite right. Different people about arriving in an alternate version of the world we know and trying to change the actions and outcomes of our original world. And today's story afterlife is about a man who dies and looks back at his life and the effects of the decisions. That he's made. Please check out the written episode description for a content advisory if you are so inclined and if you are ready. Let's.

Welcome back, everybody. Episode number 91 of Stephen Kevin shows today we're gonna be talking about LinkedIn messages. The right and wrong, the best, the worst how you go about doing it. Right. There's no doubt that this is a topic that gets a lot of attention from financial advisers and, you know, rightfully, so it's very intriguing. It's using LinkedIn to message perspective clients into try and get them to respond to you and I think for a lot of the advisers eerily familiar. They think about their cold calling days or door knocking days or whatever it might be and it's like, I can replicate that through LinkedIn. Yeah, I think everybody looks for something that's scalable. You know, if I can do it once or twice, it works when I do it a hundred times. And what's really interesting in light of this whole pandemic we've been through is that the volume of messages going out has increased. I don't have an ounce of data behind that. My inbox tells me that. I feel your pain there, right? And we'll talk a little bit about some different approaches today as well, but one of the things that we did to kind of understand this concept a little more is we did a research project in partnership with Hartford funds where we researched affluent investors with at least 500,000 in the morning industrial assets. And we asked them, would you respond to a LinkedIn message from a financial adviser? Yeah, and the answer really depended upon the person's age. The younger person out there was more likely to engage. At least more likely to report the willing to engage. Those under 45, 39% of those under 45 said they would engage with a LinkedIn message from a financial adviser. 11% of those 45 to 65 and 4% of those over 65..

From god where god speaks to us and tells us something but obviously the enemy of our souls also can have information and there are people that don't know the difference. I think if i get information it's must be from a good source. You're saying no that There are demonic voices as well. That may try to deceive us. Sure i mean. Lots of people have psychological problems poor self-esteem or whatever but when satan starts was he does all of us that voice in our ear for example. You you're lousy person.

The line here culturally stephen king for me as a a figure. In relation to queer. America culminates last year when jk rowling turf extraordinaire fucking piece of shit. We spit we spit. We spit on her in this box. Just absolutely not one time. I was in a bookshop One time i was at a book trump and a friend and a another transplant. I was like ooh. I was looking to like mysteries in show. Who cormorant strike. That's just a fun name and they were like that's taking out. That's jk rollings. And i just went put. It sucks so good at naming god. It's frustrating except if you're a minority in which case your toe chang fulford. I'm wolfersohn this so. Jk rowling is being canceled. Her whatever on twitter people are are upset at jk rowling for hate speech and she does what turfs will often do. Which is she posts something. That sounds reasonable without any context. She says something along the lines of like oh like we just wanna protect women and i want to protect women's faces right like we have to. We have to be able to trust women and their intuitions. Whatever in these times. Stephen king likes that tweet. Because he's missing the context and jk rowling than re tweets that along the lines of like soka dab like a another prolific author on my side. At some point. Someone gives stephen king the context because he responds to that with trans women are women. Like yes and i. I'm just. It blows my fucking that stephen king does this because this is a man who wrote the talisman like but he wrote the talisman in the seventies late seventies right. Yes so it's like clearly. This man has had the time to you. Know maybe all of his takes definitely not perfect his takes even now are still not perfect but you know he's learning but that's also like the trick of turf rhetoric in how it really in situates and it really just tries to disguise itself as safety and protecting women but ultimately is is divisive. And if you aren't careful that's also where a lot of east phobia discourse comes in. It actually comes from turf rhetoric right suite. You really have to be careful. And we're really lucky. This time to explain to. Stephen king right. There's two lessons for me out of this. That i want kind of pin this at. Because we've we've come through theory we've come through history. We've arrived at the present. Were stephen king very publicly states. Trans women are women. Hel- fucking yeah stephen king to lessons here one. There were probably dozens and dozens of people in stephen king's life that got him to the point where he understood that to be true. Yes you can be that person right. Yeah it doesn't matter if you're listening to this and you're straightened. You dislike stephen king. You're working to the backlog whatever hi welcome. I hope this was enlightening. If you're listening to this as a queer person and you have your own opinions on these things you disagree you agree. Whatever that's fine. We're not the voices of the community. Lord knows there. There is no one voice of the community because the community is united by. Its very diversity. That's the goal. The second thing is that platforms are important. L. and stephen king has reliably. I think done his.

"The distinction in the dark tower is that these characters are explicitly not queer people right like the people that they're right there. The people that are harming are not like straight people who have nice houses there. They're harming the homeless people though they're harming the vulnerable people and by the way it's still true that the majority of of homeless folks like by percentage are queer. Yes and i think that shows a remarkable amount of understanding. Frankly from stephen king that he's like okay. Yes this is a very scary disease in time but the people that were being hurt the most worthy queer people. Yeah i appreciate that. Thank yeah okay and by the way they get one like i don't we've we've there's not enough media about the aids crisis there is an weeded university. Did a the normal heart. Which was by. Larry kramer in its autobiographical are semi-autobiographical about his journey through like dealing with the aids crisis and trying to be an activist in new york and kind of and we did it my senior so like last nonetheless full of all before and it was this kind of gut wrenching window into queer history that you do not see not like it is so hard to get an inkling of queer history ever. Yeah it's so frustrating. I did not learn about the aids crisis through school. No yeah absolutely not. i mean me. Neither right they mentioned eight when they teach you. You know if your school does sex. Ed they might mention aids as s t. Yup and were you know as you get. Hiv as sad and then it becomes an that's it there's just nothing. How much king has written it into his work overtime. Yes that's that's the that's the through line. Here's that like he you know he. It's not like he's taking on the mantle to educate the masses but he's very actively saying this was part of the history and i'm gonna include in.

Wow i'm on lake. So i take the wikipedia. It was sparse. I checked the wikki. It was sparser. Yup it was worse. Oh my god you weren't kidding. Yeah it's because the vast majority of king fans are older and don't dude. Are you know which you know. I guess it's fair. I don't fucking do it either now. I'm on good. Reads trying to see if anyone mentioned. I'm ninety percent. Sure his name is bill. I'm the other thing before we just shoot ourselves. Further in the foot here is i. Actually the other day loves buttons. Omnia was that it also be. Yeah are you. Flew like helen. The principal character. Who you know in her story. You know the they intact. The story was her husband. He and she fled to a women's shelter. And it's this kind of slow realization. That ralph has at like oh. Helen is no longer going to be looking for men. And especially because there's that other character from the women's shelter. I can't remember her name either but there is some tricky bits in there were just like. Oh yeah. she's a lesbian and she's clearly like the man heating guy like that of noxious but it's just close enough you're sitting. You're the the thing that's hard about. Stephen king is that he doesn't he doesn't pull punches from his characters. If his character would think or say something problematic. Stephen king does not stop them from doing so as a writer which is tricky. Because then you you run into wall. Are you encouraging this behavior. Because it's coming from the protagonists etc etc. I also does a character in the dark tower. That is we need to gush about a bad guy random. So yes we we will talk about my fave and yours callahan. But i wanna talk real briefly about what i think is ultimately my king representation which is like a random tie. Heen like just dude who is killed in thirteen. Yeah is like just like a dude. He basically in work you know. He's kind of a different species doesn't he needs a marie. So here's a furry. I'm i'm talking about in absolute minute character. I don't think he has a name.

"It is perhaps the most unflinching i guess would be the word in and i don't mean that in like new york times puff piece an unflinching depiction literally like the camera stays on the on the event longer than in any other king fiction even the ones that deal specifically with child sexual assault which quite a few but in the talisman you have this tween boy kind of road trip across the us or whatever and he hitchhiked with a man who he immediately picks up as a homosexual and he knows that this homosexual wants him and he's just got to shame him a little bit and get out of the car and it'll be fine which is bad across all. Just see you take you take that depiction and then you compare it to it. Which has a sympathetic view. At least of the violence that queer people have experienced. I am in the minority of folks in terms of. I actually don't have a problem with how king addressed hate crime in that book me neither because it it. He's literally he used it as a function of saying. This is bad. This is evil. There's nothing redemptive about this. This was a hate crime right. And i think that it's easy to forget how low the bar was for so long. You know like violence against queer people is bad and is connected with this monster which you know to be bad is in fact a pretty nuanced take for when that book was released was a hot take it. That was the eighties. What year god should know. I wanna say eighty six. But i'm not certain that would be height height of the aids crisis right so yup. Yeah so this was not a time that a lot of america had sympathy or even empathy for queer people in america because they were dying at untold rates. They were lost almost an entire generation. Yeah moment the moment of pause there see you compare that with his earlier work and then you compare it even further with his later work when we start to get cannon. Queer characters insomnia wanted gosh about insomnia but that has a really solid older queer man which is a character that we still don't get enough of i mean truly especially the kind of character. He was where he's not super flouncy. He's not flamboyant or at least he's not like excessively so he's not. He's not a stereotype. Exactly so you got either like some. Trent like some kind of trump said he leans into but he kind of does it with an awareness. Like he's he's like. Oh i know i'm gay and this is what people think of You know which is true to my experience. I've forgotten his name. Isn't it bill. bill bill. No isn't it. Oh my god. I'm so bad i'm looking fan. I'm looking. I'm pretty sure it is bill this. We're supposed to finish so many bills in stephen king's fiction. I can only remember so many of them. The wikipedia entry does not list on dude. Stephen king wikipedia sphere is in fucking shambles. Okay we need to talk about this as a public information issue. I don't know why no one's talking about this. I don't know who's covering it up..

"Of taking a full dive in to his tendency to cross dress and then he commits suicide. Which is pretty bleak. Yeah and to kind of see that as a child and it stuck with me throughout all these years of all the things. I remembered about a book. That is the finis stuck out to me. I didn't even identify as queer back. End was the first thing like when. I think about like a key boots. I'm sure there was other stuff. I the gang of your childhood queer experience. You kind of very confused in a little bit. You know settled by it. And i didn't know why. I can sit here and look back and say oh. That's why it is but it's you know so that's kind of the other side of it right where you know this cross dressing character. It's kind of used. It's a it's like it's just not good. It's not great. We talked about it way back. Then but if you haven't listened to that episode or if you've listened to a long time ago the kind of reason why that's not great is that the there's an association with cross dressing as a sign of mental on wellness assign. This was a character who was unstable and therefore susceptible to that psychic influence which eventually killed him and they are referred to as him the entire time. There's no you know. We're we're away from stephen king having a reckoning around trans identity now i will say that what's interesting about reading king to the degree that we've read king. There's an arc towards deeper understanding that mirrors our culture. Yes king is steeped in american king is americana yup americana himself and you can. You can feel him working his way through. What the broad cultural understanding of queen is if you go back and reread. I think the lowest depth for me the lowest low is either that evensen fire starter or is the talismen has a segment. Which is i wanted to cast vile talisman and then there's also You could argue library policeman library. Policemen i think or is is is a little more complicated. They don't draw the same direct link. Okay any towels matters. So i mean library. Policemen includes of of visceral depiction of child sexual assault. It's not the only stephen king novel to do so..

"Is a dividing tactic. So let's talk about queer history in relationship to stephen king. I do wanna like make sure that we keep bringing it back to king yes. Stephen king has been writing long enough that the culture around queasiness has shifted dramatically like really really significantly over time and you can see it shakeout in his writing. Yeah starting with kerry kerry is an interesting book to me. Because i think there's a really you could read kerry white as queer varies oi. You could one hundred percent. A generous reader kerry can take some of the body. You focus in the writing. That king has that people often read as horny grossman thinking about naked high scores which is unfortunately not a read out of the realm of possibility gauge in the state of things. Yeah but carries obsession with her body and lack of understanding of what it does and interest in other young women's bodies reads as really really queer to those of us who were not thinking of cleaners has an option when we grew up. So i remember starting sports in high school and thinking that i just had an academic interest in other men. Would i would tell my friends like man like. Did you see that guys. But and they'd be like. I wasn't looking at his but and i was like. Yeah me neither i wouldn't. That's not where. I was looking at all Man you tie that to the religious extremism that tortures her and her outsider status and already aah kerry we get fertile fertile ground for a queer. Read mcqueen queer interest in stephen king. Yeah it ain't smooth sailing though. It is not I'm going to be very honest. Even my cat has been door driving. You seen so i'm running. I've been listening i've been. I've been running around the laser pointer to get her to. That's and so. I haven't had the chance to percolate my own thought. That's fine i again. I'm coming at this from more of a gender identity angle. Sure i've mentioned this to you. Before is that. I read fire-starter when i was probably a little bit young to read fire starter. Get rid of when. I was like ten or eleven. The i wasn't even thinking about trying to shit yet. Like like i was who. I was in my tiny little child body and i think i mentioned this. It's really not like a significant chunk of the book but it's the part like stuck out to me because at that time. Are you definitely main. Queer thing i had seen. My young huge was kinky boots. Amazing referring to for we continue forward. Oh i'm so sorry. So there's a scene in firestarter with one of the characters again like my memory of the is actually quite sparse. I believe the detectives or police officer characters appreciate he dies he puts on his wife's clothes and then shoves his hand down a garbage. This oh that's right. Yes so there is a some sort of shadowy government authority figure who is psychically influenced to commit suicide by.

"This is incredibly specific. Two trans horror. And there's not a lot of that and god knows to king hasn't done it yet. I'm probably will never do it But a lot of that has to do with being a monster and accepting monstrous nest. Menas when you're trans you kind of get a little bit different than justice flake if you're if you're bisexual or you're gay or lesbian and that's not to invalidate those identities. Just explain that. There is a difference Because a lot of when it comes to trans presentation it becomes like very visual and like me. I lean more masculine. I especially right now. And i don't look masculine and it's this kind of cognitive dissonance that becomes its own nightmare and that's of why i love diving into hard. Who escape in especially nowadays especially exploring like people who have maybe this monster this devil on their back that they can't get rid of and instead of trying to fight it learning to accept it will that also brings us to a really important kind of media criticism term which is queer. Coding and coding is a messy topic to talk about because like all media criticism terms it has a degree of nuance to it. That does not survive well on especially social media so for example ursula from the little mermaid is coated. Oh yes because she was based on a on a dry right based on a drag queen specifically has a body type that is very different than like any other character specifically which also has its own links to like fat phobia. You could argue right all these things all these things kind of linked together. But you'll see kind of exaggerated traits of masculinity in women femininity in men things that are not not great to associate with villainy. We've talked a little bit on the program about those things. Every now and then king will have a villain. That's like playing into some of those troops which is not uncommon. Now there is this very very funny side effect of this. Now where you get attracted to the Exactly two things happen simultaneously. One villains tend to have more varied designs because they're stepping out of gender binary stepping out of what is acceptable to do. It's why people got really into like the jokers like ooh believe in this society. What yeah okay. Yeah no. I was thinking i was thinking For some reason what popped into my mind was dr faciliate from the princess and the frog sure right. But he's like a dynamic interesting character. Yes the top. So that's that's one half right. And then the other half is at a whole bunch of people have become more free to accept who they are as queer and those people grew up identifying with these characters that were outside of the norms of their genders weather. That's in hetero normative in those characters like not being straight issue right like what we associate with straightness. It's it's so hard to find. It's getting better and better but it's a lot harder to find positive queer And so you know this is obviously changed in the last decade. But it's also not perfect and right now. There's a lot of reliance on the lake typical. Like oh you..

I have hoped for this Spencer what are you excited about this news about avatar opening up so i'm like a total late comer to avatar my gosh was like really into it. I think he watched it when it routinely aired. I'm totally oblivious And then we watched the whole thing with having gone all the way through legend of cora. So i guess. I'm not completed yet. I haven't watched like the movie. That shall not be named m night shows apparent. How far are you. I'm like season two. I think one of their season. Two excellent amman great villain taken on communism and season one of the show like that. That show just taught me a lot about the idea of cosmic balance because like star wars as a franchise always tried to have this message about keeping things in balance and and really controlling your emotions in the way that the universe is structured between dark and light but avatar actually does it. And i'm excited for you to finish getting through the legend accord because they go far deeper on on the cosmic balance in that universe. One thing that i liked about avatar was the redemption or my one of my characters zuko right and there are such zero. He was the best. I love uncle. I wrote to his t he. Yeah yes but think about how.

Well i will say. I think the amount of of lord of the rings and avatar references we've made. We can't take too much offense with red shorter like batman references and wonder woman talk. But we're making door cool again. stephen. I don't think that's the thing. Let me think it's so. This is a good one right. This is actually a positive one comment on our youtube page. Reflect islam said loved the points on endless war and the need to move toward a multi-ethnic movement the latter was especially spot on as even in new york city the district that swung more towards trump or minority precincts. I mean. I love hearing stuff like that because one of the things that you and i very much believe that the next generation of future of the right has to be one that appeals to people all across american life. And if we're doing that so far we're winning nothing wrong with that and end the wars all right next one. This is from. Dave mclean and acquaintance of mine from my hometown. He called me out for using the term the swamp to describe washington. Dc and dave says seems like what the refreshing direction. You're going with this. You might consider a jettison of the old memes and retake intellectually washington having watched one of my favorite buildings be ransacked by reactionaries in january. Wouldn't that be a step. That right now could take. I hear what you're saying. I already responded to dave in the comments as well but like i think we really got to be careful about idealising washington too much there. Is this idea that it is the west wing in some people's minds. Some people think it's house of cards. I think it is veep personnel here. But i get dave sam but like this is the swamp this is a place of self dealing people getting rich off doing things they shouldn't i don't know i always say like trump have drained it but dubbing the swamp was one of the truest things he said you and i both have lived in the city of lived in the area. And if if there's one thing you see here it's that swamp and swamped denizens. Who call the shots in the city. So i i don't agree with that comment but hey the that's why we asked you for your take and it's it's tied to like we want government to be good. We should trust our government and our elected officials but only to a certain only when leaders of access and right. Now i don't. I certainly don't think they do now. I hear you so you have the next one. So this is an email from daniel be. He said he appreciates the show. And it's nice to see an intelligent discussion of issues from a conservative perspective. We need an alternative. To the trump limbaugh breitbart brand of conservatism with all tate and conspiracy theories. Well we're not interested in hair or conspiracy theories just lord of the rings and the legend of cora so on this show. I sounds like we're doing something right. Then you have found the alternative right now and from the youtube comments patent rights. The soy is strong with folks. I blame you for this. Yeah i'll say there's not a lot of soy in my house. There's a lot of red meat and burgers and steak cooked all the way through the and well done with ketchup. Everybody that united states now the right way. And if you don't agree we'll tell us in the comments. But you're wrong. So and if you want more. Brad's bad food. Take subscribed to as podcasts breaking boundaries for the worst every single week all right we also have Some good news. We want to share with you to continue with our theme of hope. We're going to be doing this every week on the show. We do have some reasons to be cheerful. The pandemic accelerated many things in two thousand and twenty including the decline of capital punishment. Eighteen prisoners were sent to death row last year. That's the lowest since one thousand nine hundred seventy six when the supreme court revived the practice. The federal government carried out a majority of the executions at the state level. Colorado ended the death penalty this year. New hampshire struck down from the law in two thousand nineteen lift. Fear dock and virginia is poised to follow suit this month. Pending the governor's signature now. I'm for a little less state-sanctioned violence that gets two thumbs up for me. I don't know if you feel the same way..

"It might be living in a van on the road for the next ten years of their life doing the bohemian thing like so it all depended in their description of this idea if they had self determination to do it now. I also kind of disbelieve. This a little bit. I was like i don't know this feels to like rainbows and roses. But morning consul the same thing and their studies on gen z and optimism but it all came down to. They are less optimistic about the future particularly about covert but they believe they can change things in a way. That millennials didn't at the interstate by and large. They believe they have the power to change the world. And maybe that's just again youth. That's just youth screaming like that's always been there but i do take it seriously like and me to that. Autonomy is just so good for the soul to believe that you have control over your life and power in the world teams. Things millennial a structuralist. They don't believe that they can change some things that like the system is set. And you can't do certain things within the system. Yeah that's why. I think for the gen z. It's like it's nihilism but at the same time it is something along the lines of of a positive you know that they want to break certain things down and let me tell you the things that they want to break down. Some of them are bad but there are things that need to be to be smashed and rebuilt again. Yeah i mean you wonder once again whether it's you know we're free to exist here because none of this really matter so let's just enjoy ourselves or whether it's you know let's join together and improve the world for all. I'm not sure that they're flirting with that line. But you're right. That christian salt is anderson walton research. I did did show that..

"Suburbs will be our next generation of voters. Yeah i can't echo that enough. I love all of that one thing. I'll note to just a shoutout to oklahoma. City's mayor david holt. I think he's a really good model for a lot of this. I think there's a couple republican mayors throughout the country. Where you see that. They're they're like governing. They're doing their jobs. They're focusing on people's lives and making their communities better. They're not like out for the retweets. They're not to be like the next whatever channel contributor. They're there to do their jobs. And we need more of that on in both parties. I think and let me let me. Let me jump in if you don't mind You know we're not necessarily plugged into any republican candidate's. Here's a question about twenty twenty. Did kelly law floor and david perdue have significant black outreach on school choice in atlanta regardless of what happened with impeachment and the election being stolen did they do. What ron santa's did to win as governor's race in two thousand eighteen is ron johnson. Planning on spending time in milwaukee in two twenty two to win reelection these are questions. Gop strategists need to ask themselves if they're not asking these questions and they're relying on the the old base and trying to win back the. We're not gonna win and this is this all goes back to. The demographics is destiny. Sort of argument that again. We saw playing out in two thousand twelve mitt. Romney went down. there was the whole. Gop autopsy kind of some of the conversation. We're having today kind of again. Like another autopsy of what went right and what went wrong in two thousand sixteen republicans But at the same time like we wanna see a different party and it does seem to me that the old base the republican party is holding on for dear life to this party and that they are not going to let go..

"And where the opportunity is you see. Enormous just reported yesterday by nbc blue-collar shifts towards the republican party including among hispanics and black americans among blue-collar spandex and blacks and in philadelphia the words that flipped most to trump from sixteen to two thousand twenty where the hispanic sections of north philadelphia. There is an enormous opportunity for the american. Right it's not among woke progressive college graduates. It's not among hate has no home here. Thirty five year old moms in the suburbs. Among working people of color who comprise an enormous wag of the democratic constituency and yet have no voice in the party whatsoever because the democratic party is steered by an elite kadre of woke online mostly white progressive college graduates. They have forgotten their base. And i believe the republican party more than ever has an enormous opportunity there enormous gettable groups. Just look at people without college degrees and then juxtaposed that with biden's give away to college graduates who have student loan debt with the with the young people who are definitely. I think they'd just by default identify with the democratic coalition because of the identity politics stuff because of sort of the the more touchy feely aspects of the party. It does seem to me though like that barrier is what is always going to keep the zuma's and whatever generation comes after them from the republican coalition until the republican party learns to speak to more people at the national level. Because you mentioned cities. Like i think that there is always a chance for city policy particularly like with making the cities of the future zoning reform schools and this entire nightmare during covid and republicans being the party of opening the schools again. This is an opportunity but it will never happen as long as at the national level..

"Upper middle class kids. All of them have advanced college degrees and they are the more they wanna burn down the system and yet they are products of the stub. Yeah we we read about them all the time. Very privileged kids going to ivy league schools They're like third generation students at these schools and they come in there with a impressed attitude and thinking that they they can't succeed because of x. factor like you are at harvard. And your mommy and your grandma both also went to harvard. And it's just. It's a huge disconnect. And i think that's true. That is one reason why you're going to have like these activist sort of socialist among yo- young cohorts but they're never gonna be authentically socialist like as a cohort because they're too wrapped up in the fruits of capitalism and also like. I think it's one of the hard parts of her society to like. I was saying we're more recognition for things. It's also the fact that people can be all different points in in life in society economically to and still deal with things so. I think it's good that we're kind of understanding. Hey you can be here but still deal with this. And that's healthy but it's just when you latched too much onto the bad part. I think that can be really bad for someone and that can just be bad for their soul for the motivation. There's a lot to be said there. Also for all different kinds of groups on albert. How do you see that playing. And maybe the complexity of society maybe just people not matching their You know their lived experience with like i hate to say lived experience. I've just realized they said it. But social media will make fun of me but but but matching all that with your upholster so you know this kind of stuff. What does the data tell you about like. I guess our new complex issue society. So i would say both the data on the hidden tribes in american politics and my own anecdotal experience..

"Hello and welcome to right now. I'm steven can't bright. Now is the very first show from rightly a new digital platform from aljazeera. Our goal here is to provide a platform for dialogue on the future of the american political. Right i happen to be working on this very same kind of project win. Aljazeera reached out. And i'm thrilled. We found one another to do this. Political discourse in america has become really bitter and disorienting for all of us not just for the millions of americans whose identities are tied rightly or wrongly to being opposed to the modern democratic party. American conservatism has long been defined. What's called fusion ism. It's the timid marriage between traditionalist. Conservative and libertarian thought united by a shared commitment to liberalism or openness or accommodation. That marriage of convenience goes back decades and then it peaked in the cold war. Now in case you haven't noticed it has since gotten pretty ugly. The marriage is undergoing counseling. The feeling on the right is that the political left has radicalized abandoning abandoning the one thing. All political factions in the united states used to have in common which was that liberalism or modus vivendi. It essentially means coexistence now up the left has radicalized true. But what do we do with that. Donald trump seized on the work of radio legend rush limbaugh essentially sang to be conservative. Means to fight like hell or they win. Whereas william f. buckley once like it to standing history yelling stop this new version of that is shouting stop while also hitting back with star spangled brass knuckles all the time. Now trump also tapped into a desire to challenge conservative conservative economics and orthodoxy. Like keeping the government out of the hair private companies or the virtues of free trade now for trump trade was about his zero sum view of the world and a narrow definition of what it means to win if france was putting tariffs on our goods..
