US election 2020: Trump, Biden to face off in presidential debate
"Than 24 hours away from the first presidential debate between President Donald Trump and the Democratic presidential candidate, Joe Biden Valley political consultant stand Burns, telling Katya This is going to be one of the most viewed presidential debates in history. And with so much anticipation about not only is trump going to behave in the most Trumpian style, bare knuckle, no rules kind of thing. But how is Joe Biden going to do in that hot spotlight? And
Is the federal government to blame for wildfires gone out of control?
"Fires on the West Coast are burning across an incredible amount of land burning added incredible scale smoke has dimmed the son in cities as far as two thousand miles away. Dozens of people have lost their lives many more have lost their belongings and their homes. The scale, the intensity and the frequency of wildfires have grown more alarming in recent years. It's clear according to fire experts that the US needs a new strategy to cope with his escalating threat. But exactly what that strategy should be is tricky to figure out. President trump has said forest management is the single solution to combating fires out West. Fall down after. A short period of time about eighteen months they become very dry they become really like a matchstick. And they get up, you know there's no more water pouring through and they become very very They explode they could explode also leaves when you have years of leaves dried leaves on the ground it just sets it up. It's really a fuel for a fire. So they have to do something about it they all he's repeatedly shrugged off warnings that human caused climate change contributes turning western states into tinder boxes. Trump's view is contrary to scientific consensus on this issue. The president's rhetoric seems to reflect a lack of agreement at the federal level around how to solve this fire problem. But how much does trump's refusal to acknowledge manmade climate change affect the country's wildfire management and response plans for that matter how much a forest management falls on the state versus the federal government? Ultimately who's responsible for preventing these wildfires from burning out of control? This is, can he do that a podcast that explores the powers and limitations of the American presidency I'm Alison Michael's A need from the states from the federal government in terms of recovery is going to continue to stack up. That's in Kim White House reporter at the Washington Post. She's been closely covering trump's response to the wildfires. Later in the show, I talked to a fire in climate expert about where responsibility lies for fire mitigation and disaster response but I I turned to sung men to explain how the president's rhetoric and Fit into the West Coast ongoing crisis. It's a devastating situation out west. There are millions of acres of that have been burned. It's about ten states out west, but it's really concentrated in California Oregon and Washington State. You have dozens of deaths and we'll be saw on the presidential front. was that President, trump traveled to California on Monday as part of a campaign swing he stopped in Sacramento to get a briefing. On these fires, it was the first time. He had really used the power of the office to bring attention to these wildfires where he had been pretty quiet on the issue until that. Yeah and this isn't the first big wildfire that's happened during the trump administration has his response been similar this time to what we've heard from him before in two, thousand, eighteen or twenty nineteen. It definitely has me on the overall issue of president trump and climate change. He has repeatedly cast doubt on the scientific consensus of man-made Climate Change and he also dismisses it in relation to these wildfires. My colleagues at the posts of obviously talked to so many experts say it is absolutely clear that hyman change is really aggravating these fires creating these conditions. Where these fires can just really get out of control quickly. But the president has repeatedly not just with these latest round of wildfires this time around. But in previous years throughout his presidency blamed forest management, he says, the mismanage forest are the main cause of why these fires are blowing out of control. Now, there is a little bit of truth to that. From the experts that we've talked to and even Governor Gavin newsom of California acknowledged that it has briefing with the President and Sacramento on. Monday, that is clearly not the whole story but trump and his typical trumpian fashion has referred to exploding trees and conversations with unnamed foreign leader saying, well, we take care of our trees so we don't have that problem. In our country and that's been where the president has been casting the blame.

They have more races and they've ever had yet no one can actually go. Welcome to 2020. This is surreal Time sterling on your Friday night, 700 wlw. News, Traffic and Weather News Radio 700 W. Ell delegate Cincinnati on an advisor to the president is Lucky enough tonight to have his sentence commuted. This is Thie 9 30 Report. I'm Matt Reese. Roger Stone had pleaded for the president to keep him out of prison. And he got his wish tonight. Stones 40 month sentence for lying to Congress and for witness tampering has been commuted. President had criticized the prosecution of Roger Stone. Calling it a witch hunt. The reprieve issued to Roger Stone came as a federal appeals court denied his bid to delay reporting to prison. Now Stone doesn't have to report it all. Stone was convicted of misleading Congress about key elements of Russia's election interference, including communications.
Is Trump abusing his power over the judiciary?
"This is news in focus where we offer our insights into the stories that matter before we go any further. I want to address today. Sentencing of a man Roger Stone Roger Stone. He's become the sentencing of Roger Stone. A LONGTIME CONFIDANTE DONALD TRUMP for lying to Congress obstruction and witness tampering was mired in controversy. Over how the. Us Justice Department handled the case under public pressure from the president. Mr Stone received a forty month sentence whereas prosecutors had recommended that he serve up to nine years. This followed seven cases of presidential clemency for White Collar criminals whose convictions included extortion fraud and lying to White House officials. Yes we have commuted. The sentence of Rod Blagojevich. He served eight years in jail We have Birdie character we have Mike Milkin. Who's gone around and done an incredible job? Offer is the independence of America's judiciary under threat. Or as Mr Trump simply using the powers a lot to him on the line with me to discuss this is ed loose. Us National Editor and columnist and Cottam Schober US legal and enforcement correspondent. I let's hear a clip from president trump taken. Just a couple of days before stone sentencing. Just so you understand. I chose not to be involved. I'm allowed to be totally involved. I'm actually I guess the Chief Law Enforcement Officer of the country but I've chosen not to be involved but he is a man of great integrity. But I would be. I could be involved if I wanted to be man of integrity he is referring to is the US Attorney General William Bar but is this credible given the tweets he published before the sentencing of Roger. Stone got tell us first about the case of Roger Stone which you've covered for the F. T. Who was he exactly? What was his crime? And was the sentence particularly lenient for this kind of case. Roger Stone is a flamboyant veteran political operative in the US. His career goes all the way back to working on Richard Nixon's election campaign and he has basically been the person you call as a Republican presidential candidate. When you want to get your hands dirty. He called himself a dirty trickster and he is an expert in this sort of Makir side politics in the two thousand sixteen election. He was a sort of informal adviser to Donald Trump. And one of the things he was trying to do was make contact with wikileaks. When it became known that wikileaks had a trove of hacked emails from the Democrats to use it for political gain. The thing that he was convicted of is in two thousand seventeen when Congress began investigating. What exactly went on to twenty sixteen election? The House Intelligence Committee called on Mr Stone and asked him about some of the comments he had made during the campaign and Mr Stone lied to. Congress about who is intermediary was or who he was referring to when he was talking about having an intermediary allied when. He said that he didn't have any documents or any written materials or any taxed of his conversations with that intermediary. The sentence he eventually received was actually probably pretty in line with what other sort of white collar criminals convicted of lying to. Congress or the government have received the key issue in his case was he had threatened a longtime friend of his who was also another witness. Basically saying don't contradict my story and those thrashed included threatening his dog for example the key issue at stake was whether he was serious about that and whether therefore has sent should be jacked up significantly because he had made violent threats and eventually the judge took the view that although it was serious that he'd made violent threats. The person that he had threatened didn't actually feel like they were going to experience violence. Ed Tell us a bit more about Mr Stone. And the history of his friendship with the President and whether you think Mr Trump's tweets constituted interference in the judicial process. Yeah as I said. He's a flamboyant dirty tricks. Who GOES WAY BACK TO LATE? Six hundred seventy trump maximum in the late seventies. He was introduced to try but he quickly hit it off. They shed philosophy of you know playing to win that no method is invalid. Never apologize never explain. Stone set up with couple of other people are very well known lobby group in Washington. One of his clients was trump who was seeking tax breaks a casino. He was setting up in Atlantic City. And really they've been great friends since then so the ties between trump and stone go along way that very deep and they're often allegedly nefarious in terms of the League outlook from this. I have no doubt that trump will seek to podcastone fast opportunity. Trump's on the Guy Senate acquittal spring cleaning of his administration ruthlessly seeking out anybody who isn't very very loyal so to get rid of weather that Meghan appointees the civil savage. Anybody perceive does slightly disloyal. Not Enough is being pledged. Loyalty is a hugely important hugely. Important thing to trump and stern has shown loyalty he has not. He is not divulged things that have damaged the president. He's showing toughness. He's been very Trumpian in how he's dealt with. Franchi's accused the judge me by of being a biased judge which she's rejected this very trumpian and I have no doubt that it will culminate in at some point. President trump pardoning Roger Stern question about what trump actually did part of the reason. Roger Stone was so controversial. Was that line prosecutors involved in this case we're uncomfortable with what Mr Trump and the justice department we're doing. Can you explain that to viewers and why it was such a problem so there are four prosecutors who secured Mrs Jones conviction trial so the trial team? They filed their sentencing recommendation which was seven to nine years which there's no bones about it. That's a serious sentence for anybody to serve and then that evening all of a sudden early hours of the morning so after midnight trump tweets calling it a miscarriage of justice. He says this is unacceptable and Lo and behold the very next day the DOJ which is the US Department of Justice DOJ officials. Start saying that they agree that the sense would be unwarranted and adair kind of reverse it. The following day afternoon we see all four the prosecutors quit the case including one of them actually quits his job at the DOJ entirely and subsequently a new sentencing recommendation is put forward. Which says we'RE NOT GONNA ask for a particular sentence but it ought to be far less than seven to nine years. The idea that four prosecutors would quit a case. All at once is astonishing and it was a very serious and important moment and DOJ his trip shook the DOJ. It was a very dramatic moment in Washington and the question then was was doj senior leadership. William bar the. Us Attorney General. Was He reacting to an order from trump or was something else going on now the lion that DOJ has stuck to is that there was a miscommunication between the US Attorney's office in Washington DC and between main justice headquarters also in DC? But they're separate offices. Basically Mr. Barr says he was not expecting to see a seventy nine year recommendation. The new prosecutor brought on sat at the sentencing that the prosecutors who filed a recommendation that you good faith and thought that they had been given approval to do so and so Mr Bar said listen. This is not about trump. This is about. I think that that sentence was appropriate and I was not told about what was going on. The important thing here is whether or not Mr trump explicitly ordered the attorney general chains recommendation. It's still gets to this question about how our friends of the president being treated in their cases now it's pretty common across the US for federal prosecutors to request tough even harsh sentences. That's not unknown. You don't often see the attorney general weighing in to ask for lighter sentences and certainly DOJ policy at the moment is to prosecute people to the fullest extent of the law to secure the longer sentences possible so whether or not Mr Trump's tweets were an express order to Mr Bar that he followed a whether he was acting independently. It still gets to this question about if your friend of the president. How are you going to be treated by this? Doj while we're on the subject of Friends of the president. The other thing that happened last week was a series of presidential pardons for White Collar criminals specifically several that have connections to Mr Trump. I talk about Michael Milkin. What did he do and why does it matter that he was pardoned? Michael Milkin is to people on Wall Street a hero. He effectively invented the junk bond or high yield bond market in the eighties and then he was brought low by prosecutors and the SEC and eventually guilty to securities fraud and nine hundred ninety. He served about twenty two months in prison after being initially sentenced to ten years. Ever since then he's been rebuilding his reputation. He's a philanthropist. Now has the Milken Institute and for a long time people on Wall Street rich and powerful people have felt that he was prosecuted unjustly and deserved a pardon. The other person. Mr Trump pardon rod blagojevich is perhaps less of a popular figure in any area. He was the former Democratic governor of Illinois and was prosecuted for trying to extort a children's Hospital for campaign contributions and also trying to sell the vacated Senate seat of Barack Obama when he became president his case involves some quite lurid wiretap quotes. Where he talked about Mr Obama's Tennessee. Being a very valuable thing with various explosives and that he wasn't going to give it away for nothing. The fact that these pardons came just a day or two before Roger. Stone's sentencing is pretty mistake -able signal of Mr Trump's power to grant clemency. Whatever case that he wants so prosecutors can go after his fans and associates. Jerry can commit crimes. Judge can sentence them to however long they want ultimately. Mr Trump has under the constitution the pardon power and that was a pretty stark exercise of that pardon power on the eve of a close friend of his being sentenced. Ed Do you think we're gonNA see more interventions this spy trump perhaps related to the Mueller probe into Russian interference in the election. People like Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen. Who Manafort I think would definitely be a case for another pop and I would be very surprised if Michael Cohen Without Him. Because Michael Cohen Tablet Trump describes a rat in that inimitable. Kind of multi language that the president sometimes uses Michael. Cohen testified to Congress very damagingly against president. Trump's he's considered to be a tax cut. The thing that links you know all these Haden's whether it's Michael Milkin Rod Blagojevich Obama Carrick. Us police commissioner who was the security guard incidentally for Rudy Giuliani. The thing that links all of them is that they're pretty well connected people who've committed white-collar crimes and who have upbeat through Fox News. In some cases that Bregovic wife spoke on Fox News. He carrots by on Fox News to capture the president's attention and I think the pattern is again very trumpian thing. It's it's about. People who trump identifies with he feels as acute. Did he feels. He's fatty toxic at he. Identifies WITH OTHERS. Who fit that description again though. The role of connections and of mutual friends and a Fox as dishing platform for pardon. These are very common. There's a pattern here. How big a cause of concern is all this. I mean it's trump's use of the pardon power markedly different from other presidents will Clinton famously on his last day in office Rich Hedge Fund billionaire and friend of the Clintons Madonna to the Clintons and that caused a lot of bad blood. Clinton was heavily criticised for intervening on behalf of a friend and it stood out and I guess the reason I mentioned that is it. Was Fatty unusual. It's now completely normal. Trump has happened many many people who under the inventions of us? Pardon history wouldn't ready quantify so I think he has changed quite dramatically and just to add on. There's an interesting historical link year. Another controversial use of the pardon power in the past was George H W Bush who infamously pardoned a whole swath of former officials who are indicted in connection to the Iran Contra Scandal and bill bar the current. Us Attorney General was back then also attorney general and so Mr Bar He had pushed not just for one. Pardon of Caspar Weinberger. Who was the former Secretary of defense? He said listen. If you're gonNA pardon any of these people you have to pardon all of them. I think his quote was in for a penny in for a pound and so you may have the curious historical echo if MR trump loses later this year of his attorney general at the end of his time in office being the same attorney general at the end of George W Bush's time in office advising him on. You know who to pardon before he leaves Hamas all this been received in Washington and then around the US do people care. It's been received as many other actions by president trump being received with a high temperature reaction inside the Washington. Beltway and shrug outside the GNOMES that being trashed here in a row very significant look at the powers of the presidency. The procedures the the president uses before he acts and the conventions so that being shredded caused great angst in Washington. Dc across the political divide and almost badly registered a ripple outside of Washington. The same of course applies to impeachment. It really didn't resonate much isn't resonating match in the Democratic primaries. In places like Iowa New Hampshire and so I think this is far far lower. It may be it should be different than ideal while but it registered FAFA LOA on the vote says right of than than even impeachment.
Bloomberg, Trump and the Absurdity of Facebook's Political Ad Policies
"There has been a major development in the Democratic field Just in the recent months which is that a note late November Mike Bloomberg jumped into the race. The Battle of the billionaires is on Michael Bloomberg officially jumping into the twenty twenty race and he's a billionaire businessman built. A huge company went into politics and was elected mayor of New York and he is spending outrageous amounts of money a belief that he is now personally outspending the trump campaign on facebook. I'm what's his facebook campaign light? Compared to trump's he appears to be running a an almost TRUMPIAN facebook campaign although it's very much anti trump a white house beset by lies chaos and corruption and administration that has failed the American people. Also trump is launching thousands of different ads a day and they're very emotive and it means like Mike Bloomberg would get it done. The truck coming actually ran a small set of ads. That used images of what I would describe as cute and imperilled animals To try to get people to Click so these were ads. They showed a poorly cute puppy but it was so dark and he looked a little bit cold and he was maybe behind a chain link. Fence it said. Donald trump is fighting against cruelty to animals. The bluebird campaign is running practically the same ads. They also have adorable pictures of puppies and cats and they say Mike. Saves animals how does face but regulate political advertising on its platform. Facebook does not regulate clinical advertising on its platform in a nutshell There are certain rules that they apply to all advertisers But one of the very controversial things that facebook did last year was that they announced that one of the rules that they have for regular advertisers. Advertisers that are selling sneakers or sell advertising. A small business is that they're not allowed to be misleading. They're not allowed to lie last fall. Nick Clegg former deputy prime minister who now works for facebook gave a speech and revealed that they had decided to exempt politicians from that rule And they're basically saying we're not going to enforce that we're not going to prevent politicians from lying in their ads. Not only that but they also facebook does have a third party fact checking program. They said that they are exempting. All ADS FROM THAT PROCESS. We do not submit speech by politicians to our independent fact checkers and we generally generally allow it on the platform even when it would otherwise breach our normal content rules. What was their reason and justification for doing that? Their justification is that they think that the people should be able to see what politicians are. Say that if a politician wants to lie in an ad that's useful information for voters to have and so then it is up to the press to then publicize and inform the citizens that the politician is lying. And I think that a lot of people think that their actual reason is a that they don't WanNa get into a fight with the trump campaign and be it would be almost impossible the scale of the ads that are going to have fact checkers checking every single one before it goes up that would require thousands and thousands and thousands of more people working for facebook to do that work so face because made easier for political parties to wherever they won't upon the platform and they're still making it difficult for us to find out how that works is simply because it makes them a lot more money. I think probably the one of the reasons that facebook's not doing it is because It would be very difficult for them to To make the call between what is a political ad in what isn't and that would almost require as many staff as it would require to a fact. Check them the other thing is that I also think that. Facebook believes in its own propaganda. I think that Mark Zuckerberg thinks that his products are good and people no longer have to rely on traditional gatekeepers in politics or media to make their voices heard and and that has important consequences. And I think that that is probably a misconception on his part but that is a very core belief of his that facebook is good for the world. But I actually believe that the much bigger story is how much these platforms have. Decentralized power by putting it directly into people's hands it's part of this amazing expansion of voice that we've experienced through law and culture and now technology is well having spent a year watching facebook apart from the trump campaign. How do you think the this might play out in the election? He is going to start focusing more and more on his Democratic candidates. You know as that field narrows currently as we speak. He's in some kind of twitter war with Mike Bloomberg. He's GonNa start getting very very personal about the candidate says well between now and November twenty one we are going to keep on working. We are going to keep on fighting more of the same ready to definitely more of the same and I think that one of the things with the trump campaign in general is that you keep you know. I keep thinking that I've lost my ability to be shocked and then I get shocked again and we will make a great again. Thank you keep up the good work. Thank you for speaking to me. Thank you so
Traditional and Social Media: Trump's Key to Success
"What is keeping you up at night? The most when you think about twenty twenty. What keeps me up at night is that trump has a massive structural media advantage? He has a massive state adjacent propaganda machine that pumps his message out to his voters with tremendous discipline support and Democrats have not yet figure how to counter that. This primary season is not lending itself to to our party getting out a clear alternative to Donald Trump. He's an uncanny message person every time I think he's really off on something. Then we go and test it and we find out how strong it is. I wish we had some place that was able to get out consistent message against him. Two of the most important things that Democrats can control role in this campaign are what to say and how to say it. In other words our message and the strategies we use to communicate that message is Dan Pfeiffer and Celinda Lake just mentioned the Party starts twenty twenty at a disadvantage in both of these areas along. Crowded primary. Hasn't allowed us to coalesce around a single message about what we stand for. Or how we govern and aside from your friends at crooked media a few other outlets like us there's just no progressive equivalent to Fox News and the massive propaganda machine that Donald Trump and the Republicans rely on to deliver their message overcoming. This challenge might be the most critical step on the path to victory. Sorry in November. Because as we've now learned from the organizers on the ground and the voters in our focus groups it's crucial to breakthrough all the noise and nastiness cynicism to actually reach people where they are and persuade them that it's possible for us to get to a better place. So how do we do that. We'll talk to people who have some smart ideas on media and message in our final episode of the Wilderness. It's very hard for Democrats. Even the current contract with the media to put the conversation on the things that matter to voters healthcare where the economy those sorts of issues. They don't get clicks. Try Social Media Traffic. There's no algorithm benefit to them so they might as well be trees falling in the forest at times. That's Dan pfeiffer. Lifer Co host to Pod Save America and author of un-trumpian America pointing out. How difficult it is for Democrats to break through with messages policies that the voters we've heard from actually actually care about Donald Trump on the other hand doesn't have this problem? He has a tremendous advantage because of social media so the Algorithms reward outrage and outrage as the coin of the Roman conservative politics but it's not just social media where trump has an advantage. He also has tremendous Mendes influence over. What the traditional media covers the traditional media is forced by the perverse economics of digital advertising icing to cover trump? He is the nation's assignment editor. which is something one of us wants called him? We start with the president's public meltdown on twitter pushing the trade war between the world's economic superpowers into a dangerous new fe day. Nine I think of the president continuing to go. After this group of women he calls them a UC seve plus three. That's the new nickname that he unveiled for them today. The way in which media outlets have to pay their bills in a world in which you are getting paid paid by the click forces you into covering and writing about content that gets clicks. Because you're getting your traffic from facebook and Google right right in facebook. It's rewarding trump content because trump content makes people so he has that advantage tear McGowan a democratic strategist and CEO. Joe Of digital advertising firm acronym expands on Dan's notion of trump. As the nation's assignment editor the mainstream media are only covering what what gets the most noise which is actually really seeded by the Republicans and trump specifically because trump will tweet something out and then the media picks up on it because they have to exceed the president. It started when he tweeted on Sunday. That Alabama would quote most likely be hit much harder than anticipated painted. The National Weather Service then tweeted. Alabama will not see any impacts from Roy in the trump era a lot of media criticism is about whether journalists I do enough to fact check. Trump's lies or even call them lies at all but what may be even more helpful to trump is that the media has allowed him to become as Dan says says the nation's assignment editor. They let him drive the conversation. They let him pick the issues. They let him set the terms of the debate. Even when he's not talking about about governing or policy-making which usually isn't these bad incentives or why as Dan points out the overall effect of media criticism about trump trump will always be limited. I mean there is definitely some benefit to working there but we are not like seven tweets. Maggie Haberman away from solving this problem like we also have to be clear we as progressives have the wrong view of the media. We had this vision of the media as this set set of referees and fact checkers who bring order to our messy politics and so in doing so we think they think it's their job. takedown trump that is not their job so if we continue to mythology is the media. We're never going to succeed. The communication strategy because it lends us to believe leave that the best way to communicate is talk to the media supposed to talk to people. What's even more unfortunate is that Republicans realized long ago that they needed to go around the traditional channel media and build their own channels of communication trump has a massive state adjacent propaganda machine that pumps his message out to his voters with tremendous disciplined? Frankly was not just Fox. It's the entire right-wing talk radio sphere. Beer it's Owen. It's Breitbart. It is like this. Plethora of online very sketchy digital outlets that are pumping trump propaganda into the ecosystem. Is Dan says right. Wing media goes well beyond Fox News and Breitbart to random corners of the Internet. You've probably never heard of Tair. McGowan knows these online worlds all too well and takes us down the rabbit hole. There's also publications that popped up like the big league. The Big League was started by twenty seven year old man who left Breitbart because he felt it had gone soft after trump was elected in the big league is notorious yes because they were the publication that released the north black face. Photo did participate in a dance contest. In which darken my face as part of a Michael Jackson Costume the yearbook photo was broken. Not by the New York Times but by big league politics a right wing media outlet run by a former BREITBART writer. This the new normal these strategically pushed it out and got the national media to cover it win. You know I was in a very politically vulnerable moment. Coming to the defense of a late abortion bill in the State House in Virginia this revenge politics media is being being used as a weapon to deploy this type of revenge politics after the election. So there are these all over the Internet and they're not just the ones that are so explicitly unapologetic about their political agenda. Like Breitbart and Fox. There's also sinclair a hundred and ninety three local television affiliates. Let's sinclair is a pro-trump Corporation. Why our cable news channels airing so much coverage of the trump Russia story so here are the options? It's bias against the president for higher ratings or it's a really important story and now these trusted local news. Brands friends are putting money behind facebook. Ads to their viewers endorsing and marketing trump Maga- hats the daily beast reports sports at least twenty-seven clear broadcasters posted items on their website starting on Thursday hyping a new keep America great had for sale and the trump campaign's website. The right right has built this infrastructure and now is pushing millions and millions of dollars a month behind the content and the messengers that have influence on their side. How on channels like facebook and Google? And we're not spending any money we're just relying on the mainstream media to do our job which they're not gonNa do do because they live in fear of being called the liberal fake news media that that if we're not spending at the same clip that trump and the Republicans are just to drive our offensive. Message were losing the information war. The good news is Tara. Has Some ideas about how the Democrats can catch up. I believe the only solution antidote to this challenge is to have our own communication like our own owned channels to communicate to people directly and that does not mean in. NFL areas ways does not mean spread liser misinformation. It's the opposite but we have to do. Is We actually have to compete tears. Right it's one of the reasons we started crooked crooked media and now terror is actually building another one of those channels herself after working as a digital producer for Obama in twenty twelve and is the director of digital strategy. See for priorities. USA In two thousand Sixteen Terrace started acronym her nonprofit digital firm that's creating progressive ads in content for twenty twenty acronym. mm-hmm isn't making these ads the same way it's always been done but the same old democratic ad firms. They're using an approach. That's both more creative. And more data driven we'll look at a very very large audience of people And take you know ten different messages. Around how trump has been really bad for the economy. So those messages could be you know the impact of offshoring jobs the tax cuts for the rich and squeezing the middle class further. The trade war. What have you and then for each of those messages will develop tons of content memes gifts videos etc then our creative director will go to the team and be like okay? What are all of the different visceral values driven identity driven ways? We can express this message. And they'll build out all this content and then what we do is we push it out to a broader audience. Audience of voters in say Michigan Pennsylvania Wisconsin. And then what we're doing is we are actually surveying groups of these voters who are getting all of this content Dan and learning on a biweekly basis. What of these messages? And what of the actual pieces of content were delivering is having the most impact impact at chipping away at trump's approval rating among those voters. In real time
How Bolton's Allegations Could Change the Impeachment Trial
"It's the second week of the Senate impeachment trial of president trump and there's a new wildcard in the mix John Bolton a draft of the former national security advisers memoir was leaked over the weekend in it. He reportedly writes that. President trump told him he wanted to freeze aid to Ukraine until the country. Aidid investigations into Democrats including his political rival former vice president. Joe Biden the allegation strike at the center of the impeachment inquiry and could change the dynamics in the Senate or the President's defense team is making their arguments today. Joining me now with more details is Wall Street Journal Executive Washington editor Jerry. seib Jerry this leak from John Bolton's upcoming book is throwing a lot of uncertainty into the Senate impeachment trial. Democrats are renewing their calls for Bolton to testify and it could prompt president trump's defense to tweak their strategy. How do you think this could change what we see in the next few days of the impeachment trial well I think it has to immediate impacts one is I think it affects or could affect at least the tactics? The president's defense team uses as it moves through its phase days of the arguments in the Senate it has been essentially trying to have it both ways to say there was no quid pro quo when the president asks Ukraine for Investigations Investigations into corruption. In the Biden's there was no threat of withholding military aid at the same time so there was no quid pro quo. But and secondly even if there there was such a quid pro quo. It would have been perfectly within the president's rights to ask for that because he was interested in getting to the bottom of corruption Ukraine. I think now that you have John Bolton saying saying well yes there was a quid pro quo. The president told me that he was going to withhold aid until the Ukrainians started investigating the Biden's that now I think the president's defense team probably has to fall back on the well. That was perfectly acceptable argument. So I think it changes and somewhat restricts their ability to argue their case the second effect and probably conceivably conceivably the more important one is that it increases dramatically the chances that there will be a vote in the Senate to call witnesses once. The President's defense team has done making. It's case in to do that. You'd have four. Republican senators agree with all the Democrats. Witnesses ought to be called including John Bolton on Saturday. That didn't seem very likely Egli to happen on Monday. After the Bolton revelation. I think it's much more likely and that in turn I imagine could open the door to calling more witnesses besides Bolton right exactly exactly because once you open that door there are a lot of things that can happen and the Democrats are equally eager to hear from Mick Mulvaney. The Acting White House Chief of staff and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will potentially others and then you will have Republicans demanding that Joe Biden or his son. Hunter Biden be called to testify about their actions in Ukraine rain. And so you have probably dueling subpoena fights and elongation of the whole trial section of the impeachment process which the president doesn't want and very uncertain outcomes the law of surprises and potentially unser pleasant surprises for both sides. Comes into play so you will have moved from a process is that seemed to be headed toward a certain conclusion to one in which there's at least more uncertainty. I think it's very unlikely that. Any of these scenarios result in the president being convicted hidden removed from office but the twists and turns in the political impact list twists and turns are much harder to predict now. How damaging could Bolton's testimony for the president in this trial if we go down that road where he is called as a witness well I think it's damaging potentially in the sense that it will Would serve if the if the leaks. What he's written? A book are correct to basically confirmed one of the articles of impeachment that the Democrats have put forward which is that. There was undue undue pressure put on Ukraine in the form of withholding military aid to coerce the Ukrainian to investigate the president's political opponents. That is Joe Biden. That would essentially Ashley be confirmed if the leaks are correct. It doesn't however get to the follow on question which Republicans would stress. which is? That's not an impeachable offense. You may disagree with that. We think the president was in within his rights to press for an answer to what was going on in Ukraine during the Obama years as a matter of foreign policy and so what Republicans will say. It's not an impeachable offense. Even if you believe everything John Bolton said so I I think it complicates the political narrative. I doubt that it changes inches. The outcome as I said because Republicans are both convinced there there was less there the meets the eye and that whatever the president did does not amount to a high crime or misdemeanor meaner as required under the constitution for impeachment and conviction Jerry. How do Republicans view John Bolton he has a long history in Washington how are Republicans responding responding to this leak? And how are they viewing Bolton's relationship to president trump. Well that's an interesting question because you have a role reversal in both parties. He's on John Bolton right now. For years and years John Bolton was kind of a a villainous figure in the Democratic Party very conservative goes back to campaigning for Barry Goldwater when he was in his youth served in the Reagan and Bush administrations very hawkish conservative and very much reviled by Democrats now. They're begging for John Bolton to stand up and be a man of principle as we know he is and testify and on the Republican side. You have a similar reversal. I mean John Bolton is conservatives conservative he served in every Republican administration nations since Ronald Reagan. And now he's being attacked by. Republicans is not credible person and so this is kind of the whiplash effect that you see often in the the trump administration when people who were traditional Republican conservatives are not necessarily trusted now and those same kinds of conservatives. Don't necessarily love the trump administration association. So there's a kind of identity crisis on the right to to some extent these days and John Bolton personifies that now in this context in some ways you know one of the ironies. arnie's in this situation is that there are a lot of things that John Bolton has said and written for years that are very trumpian in the way he's described it very much in sync with President and trump. He has said you can't trust the European Union for example and he has said the State Department is a A hotbed of careerist liberals who try to make policy not just execute the president's policy especially when that president is a Republican. Those are the exact things that Donald Trump says about the EU and the State Department bureaucracy. So there is a there's there's a lot of overlap between John Bolton things and what Donald Trump thinks the place where they fell out with each other and the reason for this controversy now is Moscow in Russia Russia where John Bolton is quite the Hawk and therefore wanted to make sure that Ukraine was armed to confront Russia and president trump has a much more benign view of Russia and Vladimir Putin hooton overall and so the irony here is that there's a lot of trump and John Bolton just not on this question of Ukraine Wall Street Journal Executive Washington editor Jerry. seib thank thank you so
House Rules Committee meets to set terms of impeachment debate
"US President Donald Trump is facing two articles of impeachment abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. The House Rules Committee will meet today to discuss next step for a full house. Vote to impeach trump. Possibly as early as tomorrow well here to tell us more about his cloud Harrington senior lecturer in American politics the month. That university took us through the time. Fine Line that we can expect now. Well Good morning and yet so there's GonNa be a a significant vote this week as you mentioned where the house would have to consider the two articles of impeachment and so that's pretty much a given that the votes will be am to to move forward. Not least because the the Democrats have a pretty comfortable majority in the house. So that's that's kind of that for the time being and then there would probably be a short period. Were were they at turn away from it. Because of Christmas and New Year and that and as it stands and January seven is the date. That is at pencilled saluting for a Senate trial to begin so as the media coverage previously that the the idea that a Senate Charles is actually actually going to ask you to consider the greater good or and the actual facts is is looking as number by the day as as the kind of the you know the partisan sites sites hunker down so it's just a question of of a wait and see to see you know maybe over Christmas there'd be some reflections by those people who would be in that kind of juror position and in the Senate to see you know they have to ask themselves. Are they going to vote just along party lines or will they actually look at the situation and untrained vote with their conscience. Because I mean we're seeing many moderate Democrats who came to office in two thousand sixteen. Change them lines there from vulnerable states previously held by Republicans but all willing to take the political risk to impeach. Do you think then that Republican senators will join them. I mean will. They sacrifice the dignity of the office and risk irreparably irreparably damaging the GOP to save trump's skin. When did they get fed up with this? Nelson's yes that's the question isn't it. I mean I've been looking to see what certain names or or cropping up and that that might possibly may be am cross party lines when the time come. The time comes and I mean there's a few names that wouldn't be that surprising. I mean Mitt. Romney would be an example. He's you know he's a very well known individual he's also am being critical of trump is is a sort of more of a traditional Republican 'em from the olden days when you know there was more integrity involved m other names at that have cropped up R. M. Susan Collins in Maine and Lisa Murkowski in Alaska. So there's sort of what I would call kind of sensible Republicans you know individuals who have a kind of a conservative political agenda but they are not signing up to D- chopping worldview. So there are some names. I'm On some of this as well and that might possibly consider but it's it's it's a big thing to do I mean crossing party lines is a big deal and obviously you could be left. Possibly an swinging being in the wind further down the line when you're party sort of looks and unreflecting and sees that you happen sorts of 'em Lonzo this. There is one other possibility which I think is deeply unlikely at this point but it is technically possible that the Senate could actually am not go forward with impeachment and actually go for a censure motion motion instead so that something that's being discussed around the margins. But I would say at this point. It's probably a case if the wind is now fully behind the full impeachment process. A what that means is that you know. Trump is very very likely to get off and I just don't know what sort of misses that sense to to everyone. Not least as the president Exactly that that that he is a he can deflect any of this will The the the Senate Majority Leader the Mitch. McConnell in the minority leader Chuck Schumer a planning to meet to talk about the shape of the Senate. Shell should it go ahead now. McConnell is said to want to shorter prevent trump himself apparently is privately pushing for a longer process that would give him the chance to stage a theatrical defense. I mean what what might that be is. It'll just move reality show for him. Well I think I mean he's obviously looking at this. As as I as. I think. Everyone's aware at this point wings and he likes to fight. You Know He. He enjoys the confrontation. He's he's very much about the theatrics you know. He's he's very savvy when it comes to this sort of the the television will aspect of all of this so the idea that this could be a long drawn out process is is not the worst thing for him because he's almost comfortably certain that at the end it will go in his favor with the Senate. I mean you had. Mr Collins sang very recently. I am a live on television that there was zero chance. That's the term that he used 'em that at the president would be removed from office. So this is before the trial is even happened. So that's the sorts of 'em part. He'll digging that. You're you're guessing and so in terms of the the the length of the trial you know the longer it goes on the more a lot of voters Democratic voters will start saying look you know what about twenty twenty. What about healthcare? What about my job? What about the economy etc and Trumpian in supporters will look at and say you know look at this which haunt you know? There's Argonne just getting it in the neck. Were so going to be out of there for him next November rooting firm. Because look at these neurons runs you know trying to get him out of office by any means necessary so a longer all is not necessarily the worst thing for president trump so the Democrats say that the child is rigged. Do you think that's true. Well I don't rigged is the right word but I suppose one would hope you a regular person or people such as ourselves with think that you know people going into a trial on participating as jurors which is basically what the senators would be the and in that process that they go in with an open mind base their decisions on the facts that are put in fun to them and try to keep preconceived notions and You Know Parson ideology and politics extroverted. But I mean even saying those words now it seems laughable than any of that can be the case so rigged in a way Yes yes I suppose Very quickly before we go the fact checkers databases reported to sing in the in the Washington. Post that As of December the tenth Trump has made fifteen thousand four hundred thirteen fourth own misleading claims. It's absolutely indisputable that he is Eliah area why to his supporters like supporters of Boris Johnson. Here in the UK NOT CA. I think it's a you know. There's a phrase from way back at at the beginning of his administration where it were. Somebody came up with the notion that his supporters take him seriously not literally and his opponents. Take him literally not seriously and I think that can account for the the many thousands of 'em lies because his supporters are like. Oh yeah whatever you know. He says stuff he tweets. That's just our guide. That's just how he is. He shoots from the hip you know who cares and so in a way it it. It almost enhances him in a lot of people's minds that that you know he's just he's a norm. Buster on a rule breaker on part of that is just saying what comes into his mouth at the time and then when he's challenged on a light he would go back until down and say it again and say it louder and bigger so there are those who think that this is an asset and then there are other maybe more kind of our regular voters who would have their head in their hands and and just kind of fear for their country at this point cloud. Thanks very much. Indeed that was cleared
Ari Melber: How Did We Get Here? Because of ‘Weaponized’ Propaganda from John Solomon
"Donald don't trump sufficiently closer to impeachment ever on the eve of these first public hearings which will probe into the scandal that has paralyzed his presidency for now and we turn to our special report report beginning with a question. How did we get here? The answer begins with a country that was rarely in the news. And when the first reports of the whistle blower emerged in the Washington Post long long before we ever saw that complaint we were all waiting and wondering and trying to figure out. What does this have to do with Ukraine by by far the biggest news of the day? Which is this whistle blows store whistle blower story which is now going officially nuts? Shane Harris in the Washington. Post tonight is reporting that the whistleblower complaint has something to do with Ukraine something to do with Ukraine but what would be scandalous about Ukraine policy. Most people had not heard enough about trump's policies towards that country to even guess at the time and if you were learning about this story from the Washington Post The Times or or most national news in September when Rachel was reporting that out it was all new. Yeah but if you happen to read conservative articles in the opinion section of the hill back in March you'd see the seeds of this Trumpian conspiracy theory. Here's a headline quoting. A foreign officials unsupported allegation that the Obama Administration demanded Ukraine simply. Avoid prosecuting certain people a pretty silly article. Here's another from April in the same basic format a single Ukrainian source claiming the. US didn't want evidence on Democrats. Now you can see where this is going again. This was back in April before any of this blew up but around that same time. Here is the Cherry on top of this conspiracy theory Sunday quote Joe Biden Haydn's twenty twenty Ukrainian nightmare a closed probe is revived the second part of that clause. This was back in April is just not nothing yet. Close pros close pro revived hadn't happened now. America at that time in April was waiting for the release of the Miller report. It was three weeks away. There's a lot of other news but this writer over the hill was speculating about this fight and nightmare that virtually no one was losing sleep book. This is important. What's going to happen tomorrow? Because at that time there'd be no way to distinguish distinguish this from thousand other headlines for websites outlets varying credibility but those three articles. I mentioned they all have something crucial in common. They're all oh by John. Solomon a conservative writer. who used to be at the right wing Washington Times and also is an analyst at Fox News and has links to top conservative operatives Columbia Journalism Review is referred to him has been basically a history of bending the truth and distorting facts? You should know that up front if you haven't heard much about Solomon well you may be about to hear a lot more about him in the impeachment hearings Mr Solomon and president trump also the same taste in lawyers Solomon hired Joe Digenova a lawyer that trump tried to hire and like some other politically aggressive lawyers that donald trump favors these days. Agenda Does more than litigate he pushes political agendas. Agenda's goes on Fox News and that's where he dramatically previewed his disturbing material that would come from his now climate. Solomon this was back in March. There are some very disturbing details about it. There are about to come out and reporting by John Solomon and I think once those details come out. I think there's he's going to have to be a full-fledged criminal investigation wow full-fledged sounds like he has the inside scoop on what his own client is writing. That Fox News segment was touting the piece I just mentioned that Oh so understated headline which reads Info Wars Fan fiction. The one about the Ukrainian any a nightmare and the reviving of Appro. Step one. Have your lawyer hype the piece on Handy. Like they're some independent interest in it step to well obviously go on Hannity. The yourself here was John Solomon citing his mysterious Ukrainian sources for then obscure story now the story behind the story a full report investigative reporter the hills. John Solomon is with us. There's a pattern here of hundred Biden being in the countries where the vice president has a foreign policy portfolio folio and somehow mocking awesome. Nice paydays. And they're telling me tonight Sean that they've been trying to get this information to the US Justice Department for more than six months well if there was a US government conspiracy by the Justice Department or State Department. That would sound bad right but of course that lasts six months that would implicate the trump administration degenerate and hannity support trump. Obviously the other thing here is that the top people involve all say what you just heard from Solomon is false. In fact Solomon's angle has been backfiring in two ways one as political propaganda mission to help trump. This has of course now brought trump closer to impeachment than ever to as a conspiracy theory that Ukraine allegation got really big too big and it blew up in Solomon's face sparking investigation that has now publicly shredded. His claims aims you original whistleblower. Complaint says in March Twenty nine thousand nine hundred of these series of articles in the hill quoting several Ukrainian officials and those allegations citing Solomon's work and that's part of what trump in so much hot water. Then there's the trump officials and diplomats who fact check Solomon again. I WANNA be clear. We only know about this because it backfired it because of the pro but now I can tell you. Three different officials who served in the trump administration say when it came to Solomon's Ukraine writing all the key elements were false. I former army officer vitamin another saying Solomon pedals baseless conspiracy theories and other diplomat. George Kent will hear from publicly tomorrow was blasting testing Solomon's fabrications as utter nonsense but that's not just a big rebuttal. Let's testimony from people speaking under oath under the threat of perjury. Legally that obviously carries more weight potentially more legal peril than what you say Sean Hannity Segment.
Making sense of the Brexit confusion
"Turn now to today's top story you'd be fooled into thinking that you k. was in full campaigning mode by this weekend papers depending spending which paper you picked up the Conservative Party was going to promise you the moon or destroy civilization labor either had the beginnings of a pasta victory or already dead and unburied and Nigel farage from the Brexit party isn't going to stand for parliament but he's not going to go away so Vince macaroni. UK correspondent for your news joins me in the studio here to make sense of a rather messy weekend welcome back to the Vincent the the thing that everybody's talking about this weekend is that despite the fact that it is brexit has brought brought us to this general election in the United Kingdom everybody is determined not to be an election about brexit overseas are trying to shift the focus back onto domestic guess used as the feeling in the country too much of the national broadband has been taken up the bandwidth being taken up five brexit for years and years is now and they want to hear the party's plans for other services they want to hear about education any chest police because there is a feeling that after ten years of parity these services are very much at the point of collapse and so I think my understanding is Labor will try very much to in the next two days to get the brexit part of the election done do do that big speech and then try to move on from that and talk about other issues the Denver through interesting of surprise that they actually put brexit in their in their main party slogan last week they are very much thinking that if they hone in on the Brexit message that that could be there rock wall like it was in the two thousands that got them under Charles Kennedy and Nick Clegg up two numbers kind of approaching sixty and if they have a very clear simple message and they will to other policies but if they are the anti brexit party that will give them a huge boost in numbers and along with the SNP it could be those two parties that decide the course of what happens at the end of this election indeed the political world at the moment is shifting to the point where we have how many people now who have left their respective parties to join the Liberal Democrats in order to buy into this this anti brexit ticket we've seen an awful lot of people who would say with Bush sort of Brexit moderates have moved over quite a few figures moved over this weekend as well didn't they yes we had more switches happening but also the big thing as well to watch as the number of resignations that's taking cases is pretty extraordinary you're seeing kind of root out of women in parliament something that Theresa may too low touched to help get in but you're saying on the conservative side of moderate women like Nicky Morgan who currently sits in cabinet it is going Margaret James was a successful businesswoman also algae bt woman she says that the abuse and talk nature parliament's got too much she is going You need likes Angora Justine greening you're seeing real kind of carve out long Ken Clarke as well of the kind of the the Severo file centrist camera night position in the party just suddenly being kind of removing themselves from it one of the key voices in that was dominic grieve is a former attorney general here in the United Kingdom them kicked out of the Conservative Party voting against Boris Johnson a now making a very strong point which suddenly places a British election or other international personal life is called for the publication of a report on Russian meddling in the democratic process in the UK to be published before the general election. Boris Johnson has said no it Trumpian echoes it it does embarrassed I mean the the problem is you know report tells you what went wrong it doesn't help you set up the procedures you need to change and protect for tech something for future so whilst it would be handy to know I mean I think all of the parties will be taking you know improve security measures to make sure that they're not oh getting hacked as we've seen other elections being where you know the DNC and the US was hacked but yeah there is a question mark about social media we know that twitter has decided it won't Muskrats I mean that wasn't a massive issue here I think in in the UK you know the numbers on twitter actually quite small when you step outside of Westminster bubble it's not it's not the whole population but yeah we all uh-huh very curious to see what it is that is happening on facebook because the problem is that you or I are not seeing the APPS that certain people James and Scunthorpe and Tom in Wales and and Julie Danas brightness saying because of this micro targeting that is going on in that still hasn't been cleared up it would be interesting to know especially with the kind of talk now the pressure being put on facebook iceberg and other countries in Europe having blocks facebook from running class I think Arlen and France with the two in recent elections that have blocked whether the UK should've said until this this problem is cleared up we do this but at the moment all the polls looking so tight and I think all the parties will be worried by the poll numbers at the weekend especially going towards possibly hung parliaments parliament's that they're all keeping mum on their social media activties thing that was raised this weekend was the the Joe Promise it Boris Johnson in had given been given the gave rather diner dej then stay in the European Union post the thirty first of all I'm currently unite currently sitting in London were still part of the European Union check my calendar country disappointed around the country expressing the defections Liberal Democrats there was he gave even into yesterday for the first guy and the interviewer asked him if he was if he would apologize for effectively breaking a fundamental promises miss that he had repeated and repeated and repeated and this is what he said this study I do I do and I'm deeply deeply deeply disappointed and I had to consider sorry yes absolutely right then do we consider that to be an apology or is this is someone who's sort of off off record half acknowledging the problem I think as far as half ignoring the problem and I think this might come into the four of this election Boris Johnson have a line for decades that his personal life private life is personal and he's not going to discuss it and he's not someone who stands on election and preaches family values I use but when it comes to this issue of trust and the scrutiny of someone's personal life that is fair game in a general election when you're trying to become the Alito country his election the Tories was only around one hundred forty thousand in the end his electric this time is millions and millions of people and they have a right to know the character the person that is leading country I think Boris Johnson is going to struggle struggled in that interview particularly the sort of talk to sort of he had to four times say he wasn't he was asked four times about ruling out to this Scottish referendum for independence and he wouldn't do that because he knows he might have packed with the SNP and then later on clarified obsessions Shinzo did rule out because the interview was very it was very boris trying to office gate trying to dither and trying to get away from things I think he's going to face in the coming weeks some pretty harsh questions about his almosty his relationship with truth the people that he has misled recently a court found her majesty the Queen and the way that he's conducted his personal life we're in different world though now and not many people actually care about such things it would in the old days have hats it's on quickly booted out of number ten you say that then of support for Johnson but I'm not I'm not saying that the conduct itself is what will turn people off I think it is putting a question mark above his head that he may not be someone to trust and the way he is treated family and friends uh-huh means that believing what he's saying is very hard and when he's giving interviews like that one yesterday to say for Ridge on sky in which he seems very evasive I don't think about will help is 'cause neither will Nigel farage who the leader of the brexit party and someone who keeps appearing on television screens an awful lot despite the fact that he isn't actually a member of parliament is and nor does he intend to be an an MP this timer I mean first of all a very curious decision he'd he'd obviously looked at the polling and brexit party had dipped down over the weekend in the polls he's someone who's previously run for parliament seven times and been rejected five elections to buy collections and being an MVP There is a lot less scrutiny than being an MP but an MBA in this country means that you have to declare your finances you you had to declare your interest you will say are accountable to constituents I mean I I for one cannot envision Nigel farage running Friday constituency surgeries and trying to help other people people have problems Nigel Farraj is probably a broadcaster these days first and foremost as well as a kind of media figure and I think it's very interesting how can you I'm I'm an send the latest say they're going to release their sort of six hundred fifty candidates they're gonNA run up and down the country they have given Boris Johnson is two weeks window to drop his deal and then they could form an alliance Donald Donald Trump is once again over the weekend probably frogs etchings toll bars you know do deal with this Guy Nigel but for Nigel how can you say that you're launching a national national domestic policy and not want to be the leader of it in the House of Commons how can you how can you be doing that how come the public you you seriously as a political force when you yourself are doing it and I think they did sweep the MVP elections earlier in the year I went to one of their events in the candidates some optic strong one referring to Africa as a country rather than the continent on stage not being corrected not correcting herself and I think the scrutiny that comes by being an MP is far more the running for an Emmy Pena's country and the caliber of the candidates might not be as strong they might not be as well vetted and I think think that some of them will be sort of par local hustings did some macaroni from urine you thank you very much indeed for journeys monocle twenty
Our Super AvGeek Week
"And welcome to episode sixty six of ask talk. I am passionate here as always with Jason Rabinowitz and we've got a good one this week. This is a really good show. I mean it might possibly be one of the most exciting at least for US episodes of the podcast we've ever done now. We obviously haven't recorded yet so we can't quite vouch that. It's going to be good as we think it's going to be but I think it's going to be as good as we think it's going to be. Portions of this episode have been prerecorded and reformatted to fit your ears exactly so here's the format of the episode. We did some things in the past couple of weeks. We're going to definitely talk about those. We've got some special guests coming up by won't ruin it quite yet. Ian Left his house I did. I left my house twice in one week. I didn't even I didn't only leave my house twice choice in one week. I went to a different state twice in one week. You went to three state. Why I left the state but yeah yeah we'll get to that a little bit later on the show because we've got some some real special stuff coming up but in the meantime news waits for no podcast her and that's right so who it has also been an incredibly busy week on that front and I think we should just dive right in with what happened in in Miami with the American Airlines mechanic in that he was arrested for sabotage yeah yeah you shouldn't do that so so if you're you're not aware if you're not from the United States or or hard to imagine you don't keep a close eye in the industry if you are listening to this podcast but American and its its mechanics union aircraft mechanic union have been going at it quite hard for the past few months over contract renegotiations uh-huh and it has not been subtle the leader of Americans mechanics union has not so subtly called for blood and and unfortunately when most people is see this kind of rhetoric. Can they negotiate a tactic. They brush it off. There's always that few percent of if people who take it to heart and do really really really really stupid things and unfortunately this stupid thing happened to be a the American Airlines mechanic at Miami International decided. I really don't like the way the negotiations are going. They've hurt me economically in some way. I'm going into sabotage plane to get overtime to fix the plane I sabotage in not only did he do that but he went about doing it in a very stupid easy to catch way and and there is a a very large investigation into how this happened why it happened why he would do it and I hope he sees many many years of prison time yeah. It's so what happened was is he sprayed or I don't know the exact method of the foam delivery but foam ended up covering a piece of the navigation system that corrupted the ability of the system to function properly. The pilots began their taxi Acsi out on the tax that they never even made it to the runway. This was a pilot or taxing for departure and something's very wrong with the navigation system so they turned around and went back to the gate other mechanics opened up the plane and said bulled that's not supposed to be there and things kind of went from there as as far as the investigation beginning thankfully the other mechanics didn't keep to themselves and keep it in the family they contacted the authorities and corporate security in Mia Miami police and they tracked down very easily who did this. I read the FBI complaint and the employees who sabotage aircraft had a very pronounced the limp and they were able to find video of going to the aircraft that he wasn't ever supposed to touch he typically never left the hanger but in this instance he actually went out to the gate and tampered with the aircraft left and they were able to trace it all back to him and he just outright admitted it all which is I guess good mix prosecution easier but I guess the saving grace of this is that the aircraft work the way it was supposed to it detected an issue at as in described that he disconnected a cable or some sort of air sensor and physically sabotaged it putting Styrofoam in gluing it in the unbelievable that he would leave so much physical evidence behind but the aircraft sense that there was something wrong long and it returned to Gates but there have definitely been cases in the past were not having the proper airspeed data has indeed caused fatal accidents. It's several incidents with Boeing other manufacturer aircrafts and thankfully the aircraft in this instance did what it was supposed to do. Identified the issue and they went back to the gate right but his intention was not to harm the aircraft of the passengers but very easily could have whether his intention was to or not to do so right exactly. It doesn't matter what his intentions were matters. What could have happened and I asked around you know is this was a serious surfing obviously but was this something that that could have easily led to an accident and the answer. I got was not conclusive mostly because we don't know exactly clearly kind of what he did. It wasn't them thankfully. I guess Kinda broadcast hide but like you said I mean there's always the possibility buddy when we're talking about aircrafts that any issue could compound itself especially once the aircraft's in the air and thankfully the American Airlines mechanic seed has thrown own this employee under the bus and completely condoned his behavior that could have gone the other way. The union could have defended him or who knows what but it was good to see them very quickly. Put out a release saying this guy sucks. He doesn't speak for us. We obviously never condone tempering with an aircraft. I don't think that's actually with with the release said that would be some refreshing honesty not a direct credit anyone but at the same time I feel like his actions were directly influenced by the rhetoric coming from the Union. There's that one video from a couple of months ago where the head of union literally calls for blood and declares war on their own airline so if that wasn't unsettling enough this this really shines a bad light on the union unfortunately on American as well because this just can't happen. It should never happen. It is terrible for passengers used to see this on the news and think oh their mechanics on rogue and they're back to be sabotaging your craft. It's just a one off case but man. That's a battle yeah it shall we switched is to a much happier story involving what involving a pilot who just wanted to go on vacation see there are bad employees like be be mechanic down at. Miami and there aren't good employees and this may be easyjet pilot for Manchester Yeah. This may be a bit of a self serving. Good deed read hot air. No no absolutely not it was self serving but it was also kind of amazing and apparently this has happened before but this is quite amazing in that. I'm an easy jet pilot was was ready to depart Manchester. I'd go down to vacation. I think in Spain was it yeah I'll I'll contact yeah yeah him and his family and unfortunately unfortunately one of the two pilots for his flight that he was a passenger on did not show up whether they were operational issues or crew scheduling this was the Monday following the Sunday Sunday French air traffic control issues. I think that French had radar issues and so a lot of easyjet flights got cancelled and and the ones that did run ended up you you know how the Easyjet operates a lot of flights where they go out in back or they go one two three and then they're supposed to end up at three but they were only able to get to two and so they their operations were a little out of sync the following morning yes so this pilot rather than leading the fight be cancelled and vacations ruined. He said screw it. I'll fly the plane. I got pilot's license. I got my ID. What's fire this thing up in get down to Spain yeah. That's got to be one of those things where you can't tell. It's a joke at first. If you're a passenger there was a woman who recorded video of him making the announcement about what was happening and I guess is is this guy serious. Is this actually happening and for the plane high Bill. I don't have a uniform but I'll be flying your plane today basically what he said Yeah. I mean let people know the pilot. Wasn't you know the the captain was able to make the flight and then all of a sudden. He's he's in a perfect position to fly down there so they went. I think one of the articles I saw the airport ops had called the headquarters and said hey we won't operate this flight with with the off duty pilots and I said Okay we'll call you back in about thirty seconds later. They called back and say go get the flight out. Just go just go who cares what he's wearing. Yeah it's a lot of e U two six four compensation that they will not have to pay the bills willing to operate a flight on his precious vacation die that thought about that you competition will never even occurred to me but yeah I guess I guess that that was some quick math that they did. Whatever we have to pay you it's far less than we would have spent the passengers singers so the reincarnation of the fourth or fifth version of the wild brand this week. Maybe we sort of yeah really a this is ludicrous. Did you watch the press conference. I couldn't get through the whole thing it was it was to Joseph Heller esque. I think it was also very trumpian and a lot of ways where she look. Let's back up a few steps. Assure bio meets yeah so there's a is an investment for a woman. I don't really know if she is an investment firm what but but she is very much of the opinion that wow air is a brand worth salvaging and salvaging now while come back now so they sank like eighty six million dollars which is half of the amount due or something along those lines but they think a lot of money into buying the how the remnants of wow air air and apparently they want to relaunch service between Iceland and Washington Dulles next month this coming October with the two unidentified aircraft. I guess they have them in mind. Along with dedicated cargo freighters they have two that are ready to go to to bring they're beautiful fish and delicious water out of Iceland as she kept saying what they're beautiful flight attendants majestic skies and the whole thing is I don't know anyone that thinks wow Ariza brand word saving came and went so quickly in spectacular fashion stranded a lot of people and brought Icelandair to the brink of financial ruin by its back. I guess maybe kind of I think this is going to fall into the category of Kabila. Leave it. When I see it type thing the yeah the whole idea bringing back wow I get it was a a very easy easy brand to understand. I mean wow the planes are per bowl. You've got you fly to Iceland and you fly back and forth. I get that that proposition is very easy. This seems to be taking that ease of recognisability and turning it into this weird hybrid hybrid like the cargo thing why not just start cargo flights. I don't understand how that's a wild thing I don't know and the whole thing of of wow is supposed to be an ultra low cost carrier. That's what they were. That's what SORTA worked for them but at the same time she's talking about. We want to have a a lounge Catholic for all our passengers. We don't charge for water and we want to have Michelin starred Chefs Lady. That's not how ultra low cost carriers work. You have to pay for all those things so you can make money. Unfortunately our didn't make enough money. Even being ultra low cost a bottom barrel pay for everything. I don't know if she's ever operated braided airline in the past. I don't believe so but an airline cannot on the one hand the ultra low cost and at the same time have lounges for everyone and give you free Ramillo's on a five hour transatlantic redeye from Washington to Iceland it just none of that bath checks out but it sounds like a recipe for a very very nice ace airline that will operate for one week yes so. I don't like to throw them. Throw them away so quickly but do not book a flight on this airline. Let's start offering offering it because I don't understand how they could turn around to start offering flights this October so damn quickly. It doesn't make sense. I don't do that unless it's so cheap you can just throw the forty bucks fairway not care. I mean if I'm going to get a trip to Iceland free water. 'cause I mean okay but the water is delicious and Michelle Starr meal and do wait a minute. Wait a minute. I just figured it out. The whole cargo think they're gonNa make you carry the cargo in your hands into the seat. Aren't that's a nice value add proposition. That's you're going to have to hold the fish yeah. That's going to be so cheap so we can't eat the fish we have. Have you just have to hold fit. You are the cargo carrier. Oh well yeah the whole thing. Is it reeks of like eastern nine or something like that just but I don't really know. We got to see this week but that lead story for later in the episode yeah so yeah while coming back second apparently very quickly. I don't buy it. I don't see the need for its but shore speaking of airlines which are a little confusing confusing and usually on our radar we continue to question whether Norwegian will exist in the medium term future yeah or even short turn this short term future yeah. They are having worse financial issues than than usual usual. They've really a bunch of external factors of really hit Norwegian hard for when they started long operations. Boeing was late delivering the seven eight seven which was unfortunate fortunate so they started operations with their craft from anyone who had them and then the Trent went thousands broke and so they had to wet leased aircraft from anyone that could have than the seven three. Max grounded so they had to wet leased aircraft from anyone who they could find sensing a pattern here. I'm getting the pattern here and so speaking of wet lease just a few of the current wet lease operations operating on behalf of Norwegian a euro-atlantic seven six seven the high flight eight hundred eighty a high flame three forty develop a
"trumpian" Discussed on Don't Worry About The Government
"I i know how much value there isn't that but but in so far as there is value here's where i see it at least immediately i see it in the ability to network people together who would be politically politically active so the type of people who would be inclined to get involved in this campaign or that campaign you can start on the bill weld campaign build meaningful relationships you know johnny and jack they start working together and then jack and johnny goad who another campaign and and they have this experience from having worked on the well the campaign so i think there's maybe some value there and maybe some value organizationally it seems pretty clear at this point especially because of the fact that there is no room in the party for anything other than trump republicans that like the republican primary dream such that it existed is unlikely i of the world have been cowed into submission submission yeah yeah i think it would be of some value to figure out what are the camps host trump as far as the camp of doubles down on the trump narrative in the camp. Who has the case icke turning away from. That's going to be all. We were always gets this guy or yeah. We couldn't stand yeah did he was so uncouth yeah. Will you know who was the who was the recent <hes> state rep a a state house speaker straus he <hes> he would be what would you term a moderate republican that was fighting against the the governor lieutenant governor trying to keep the republicans with a business in mind and not going for for all the you know the the trumpian type legislation <hes> so let's talk about castro guys where we with castro so still very still doing well improved didn't improved held steady where we at i think he sounded really we <hes> refined in his in his immigration stance and i think that's his his horse deride and try to incorporate anything elson ten and a sound he was that was what he went after biden with so that was you know what he felt comfortable with. It's just a matter of i think he's going to work himself breath into a vice presidential candidate for one of these stronger people <hes>. I don't think he unlike warren's v._p. I i was dosing that he he got real strong impeachment. This time was really talking. The language about the feckless approach of the pelosi oh seeing the pelosi wing of the party here made me go okay who in warren feel that are more sympathetic. Oh now i like that together but i i kinda on a have an association with castro where the more trump <hes> does his worst on immigration policy the more likely someone is to pick castro and <hes> if he if he was to have some sort of a sea change or really if if if there was some just even even outside of trump if somehow the immigration <hes> circumstance stance improved it would i think it would hurt castro's chances to to become vice president but as far yeah sure as long as kids are in cages castro zero is more viable and if trump's heart grows three sizes and he takes all the kids out of the cages temple indiana jones and the temple of doom style right then yeah i i mean i suppose we castro's less viable but i don't think trump's gonna do that. No no it just depends on how much worse it gets as in <hes> <hes> but as far as as how he did. I don't think he improved his stance within the field but i also think he's in that position to where he is still going into the third debate. It's gonna be tough to make that threshold just because you now have this two month. Layoff basically are like six week lay off. The threshold goes up. I have felt like hooghly in castro has been someone who has been done dirty..

Theresa May To Step Down Next Month As Britain's Prime Minister
"Earlier today. British Prime Minister Theresa may walked to the podium, outside of ten Downing Street and said this. So I am today announcing will resign as leader of the conservative and Unionist Party on Friday, the seventh of June. So the two successor can be chosen may was under pressure to step down after her plans for Brexit. Britain's planned separation from the European Union, failed several times, NPR's Frank Langfitt has been watching this closely from London. Hi Frank, China will. So what else did Theresa May say in as announcement today? Well, what she said is what we would have expected that she really regrets, not being able to deliver on the democratic will of the people as we'd all remember in two thousand sixteen there was a giant referendum here in which people voted for Brexit. She tried for the better part of three years to do this didn't work out, and she needs space said it's time for the party and the country to have a new leader. She also spoke with great pride and with great emotion about what this prime minister. Ship had had meant to her. She's usually seen as pretty wooden, frankly, as a political figure, and this was a very human moment. Let let's take a listen. The second female prime minister, but certainly not the lost. I do so with no ill-will, but with enormous and enduring gratitude to have had the opportunity to serve the country. I love a lot of emotion for Theresa May. Well, yeah and you know what? No else, just to just to put a fine point on this most people who know her say, this is what she always wanted to do in her life. It was her sole goal to be prime minister, and she ends really after three years with not much to show for it. Her resignation didn't come as surprise, right? No. It's been long overdue. The lot of people would have quit much much earlier, as you mentioned. She tried to get this Brexit Bill through three times as plan to it failed, and she's been flailing for weeks and it was clear a particularly this week that. She lost the confidence of most of our members of parliament in her conservative party. And it seemed I was out last just yesterday talking to people. We're having your bean parliamentary elections here in the United Kingdom and many people just felt it's it's absolute time for her to go. It's long overdue and what's going to happen on Sunday is the her Tory party is expected to do extremely badly. So even if she hadn't resigned today, a shoot have had to resign announcer resignation on Monday. So what happens next I in terms of choosing a new leader, and then Secondly in terms of Brexit, which still tabby very Noel. It's going to be like the democratic nomination for twenty twenty against Trump. It's going to be a very crowded field and what will happen is the members of parliament in the conservative party. They're going to try to win it, what they will win to two and then those two candidates will go to the membership of the conservative party for what it is to some degree a popularity contest. They'll try to do it before June July twentieth. Which is summer recess the front runner. Would be Boris Johnson. He's a Brexit tier who might be willing to take the country out of the European Union with no deal at all just sever ties. He's Trumpian kind of charismatic, politically incorrect figure, but he he really connects to the to the membership. And then in terms of Brexit. The question is can anybody get anything else through? It'll be interesting to see, I think we are likely to see much more of a harder Brexit here than we've seen in prime minister may NPR's London. Correspondent Frank Langfitt unto Reese. Amaze resignation Frank, thanks so much happy to do it.

"trumpian" Discussed on Mueller, She Wrote
"They make our city. Stronger. We love diversity send them he must know that they're fine with this. So there's I'm trying to figure out what his real angle is here. Like, honestly, I think he just wants to create chaos and. Yeah, or he wants certain people in certain cities to be like OSHA. There are immigrants everywhere. We do need the whoa. Okay. Scare the people that still believe him. Yeah. Yeah. That don't believe him and wants to change their minds. Maybe he could increase his base that makes a lot more sense this, very Trumpian. Yeah. But I was talking to my boyfriend about this. He was like. Okay, cool. That sounds like a good idea. Bring them to people that actually will work to get them the resources. But I know obviously that there it's not that simple. I want also we'd like to request additional federal funding. Right. Yeah. Because he were school, but he won't though. So that's he wanted. Okay. He wanted to stop sending federal funding to sanctuary cities to punish them for even being sanctuary cities. In fact, they're called sanctuary cities. Like why let a negative thing it self by definition beautiful. Yeah. Bleeding heart liberal sanctuary. Yeah. And that's a negative gut. It's supposed to be a negative. It's not like rapist central its sanctuary. Sanctuaries where you go to be safe. Yeah. They would certainly get treated better if they were processed through a sanctuary city for sure I would imagine. So depending on the numbers any two large amount of a number of things will like brake system. I know it'll still overwhelm those that do have these programs to help him. But you're right about it being overall better for them. Yeah. And of course, these are beings. But it can't be a coincidence that pretty much every political appointee at ice customs and border patrol and department of homeland security have either been fired or resigned lately. Wow. Recently, we needed chart for that. Like one of those just to stick visualize it 'cause it's crazy. How many people have left under this administration? They have no one to head up anything DHS right now. And that's how they want. Yeah. Trump. Yeah. Yeah..
Two for the show: Trump meets Kim
"Starting tomorrow in Vietnam. North Korea's leader Kim Jong Hoon will meet with President Donald Trump for a second time. We're going to have a very interesting two and a half days in Vietnam. And we have a chance for the total de nuclearization of an area of the world that was very dangerous that may sound like a grand and concrete ambition, but there's some confusion as to what total denuclearisation really means. It seems that since the pair I met in Singapore last June. Mr. Trump has lowered his sights of it yesterday. He said he was not in a rush to denuclearization as long as North Korea. Does no more weapons testing. How much diplomatic progress has been made since that Singapore summit, and what the two sides expect to achieve this time around Kim to Donald Trump pledge to establish a PanAm peace regime on the Korean peninsula and to leave the fold you. Nuclearization of the peninsula, but they didn't really agree on what that meant for the past few months progress on any of those goals has been hampered by the fact that they haven't been able to agree on definitions of any of those things are sold bureau chief, Lena Schipper is in Vietnam ahead of the summit. Lena. What's the mood like in Vietnam? Well from what I could see on the road and from the airport. Everybody is extremely excited. This Vietnamese government we should say extremely excited. There are lots of American North Korean flags lining the road. They're all sorts of LED displays saying Hello. Welcome to noise such peace. So that can effort even though they didn't have very much time to Pat, what about your sort of home bureau, what what has the feeling in in Seoul. And so the mood is much less excited than it was before the Singapore. Some of the before Singaple you had the the to inter-korean summits that people very moved buying South Korea because you had. Kim's shaking hands across the dividing line in the demilitarized in the board of between North Korean South Korean people was very brilliant and hopeful and this time the mood was in is a lot more subdued. I think people have much lower expectations than they did in the run-up syncopal. Not very much as happened for few months there. The it's more wait-and-see. I think than it was. Some big promises were made at the last meeting, but since then not much as happened to fulfil them. What should the world expect this time around? I didn't think we should expect too much. Edward car is the economists deputy editor, but we have to see more than we saw from Singapore, which is really just a sort of handshake and a smile, so their various things that people are talking about one is an opening of liaison offices at the moment. There's no formal diplomatic contacts. There could be an opening of liaison offices in each other's capitals. It may be that North Korea is willing to shutdown temporarily or permanently its Yongbyon react to where a lot of immunity materials being created. It may be that they'll allow the inspection of its test site, which it said it's closing descend like significant Justice, but they're really less significant than they they see one high profile North Korean Coldham, like painting an old car for resale. These are really. Decrepit places 'institutions at all particularly useful to the north again on the other side in old even to get that far the United States may have to relax some sanctions. Now, this is a long way from eliminating the North Korean nuclear threat. But it is a movement of of some sort that is the the pointed question, do you believe that Mr Kim would ever completely denuclearize? I think it's unlikely, but he doesn't really have to listen to me, both America's intelligence services and more recently senior military commander in Asia. Have both said they think it's unlikely that North Korea will give up all its nuclear weapons. Their assessments is much more likely that careers willing to give up some weapons in exchange for a relaxation of sanctions, a recognition by the United States of the Kim regime, but Trump doesn't agree with that. And he called his security services naive and told them that they were totally wrong. And. There's a great deal to be had with North Korea, which he thinks has the opportunity become one of the fastest growing economies in the world. If only they tried so the discussion of denuclearization that came about during the Singapore meeting. What exactly does that mean? Well, I think that's a big problem because each side means different things by complete DeLuca is Asian the Americans made getting rid of all North Korea's nuclear weapons in a verifiable fashion. The North Koreans. We think mean getting rid of American troops as well as their own weapon. So it means getting rid of the entire threat to both career, which they would argue is the result of having US troops in South Korea protected by the US nuclear umbrella. So both sides in Singapore were able to agree on this formula because it meant fundamentally different things to each of them that at some points going to have to be resolved. This seems like a repeat of a situation the world seen before diplomatic attempts that result in North Korea getting concessions, but the west not getting the security that. Angling for that's possible. Certainly it's what many people think, but there is a difference. This time Kim Jong relatively young man around thirty would hope to have many decades in power. He has to think about what's what's the future? How can he survive for decades in power in lessee has economic growth? That's Mr. Kim's guarantee of maintaining power over decades. Yes. I mean, the economy is small and not doing terribly. Well, it'd be a long time before the economy can finance huge weapons expenditure. Even now devotes a massive show GDP to buy weapons, but it's clear that it's the technological level is conventional weapons is pretty rudimentary. So it depends to defend itself against the highly sophisticated weapons of his enemies all who thinks is enemies in in the region and the United States the way it defends itself against those visted weapons is with the nuclear deterrent will quite I mean, how do we escape the feeling that North Korea is? Getting more and more of it what it wants. But never any moves on on denuclearization. I think that's a hard question to answer. One thing that has been gained is that the haven't been more tests. So there's some feeling that for as long as north doesn't test than it's becoming slightly less dangerous is not completing the miniaturization of the warhead one hopes. And so there's a there's a feeling that perhaps. It's less dangerous if it's not testing, that's that's kind of some gain that the rest of the world is getting. But you're right. They have to think quite hard about how much they're willing to relax sanctions without seeing really concrete steps towards denuclearization. And the thing that's really key. I think some point the north is going to have to come up with a complete inventory of everything that it has. And we, you know, you'll know that it serious when the north has come out with his infantry Tillett does with just dancing around. Really? I mean, there is some sense that perhaps this is perhaps a bit of theater on. On both parts right on on Mr Kim, looking to to be seen to be getting concessions from the west Mr. Trump being seen to be a, you know tackling extremely thorny longstanding problem of diplomacy as it just the what is he's to make fun of some bits of it. The Trumpian tweets and of Trump's Egan's to be nominated for the Nobel peace prize. But I think there's something very serious at St. to the first of these is the north Trump was warned was a growing threat when he was coming into office. I and we've seen the cessation of tests. And that's something that's really worth having the second is that it's unacceptable to have North Korea able to hit the United States with a nuclear armed ICBM. No, president can stand for that. And so this something deadly serious here as well as the kind of grandstanding and the style in which Trump does. That's very Trumpian. But he is grappling with a fundamentally important issue for the security, nited states and for the security of the entire part of Asia.
"trumpian" Discussed on KGO 810
"Four one five eight hundred eighty eight ten eight zero eight zero eight one zero minority leader Senator Chuck Schumer is saying right now that they had the meeting at the White House and Trump quote walked out of the meeting. Trump walked out of the meeting. He wants this government shutdown. He loves it. This is awesome. This awesome sauce shot the government. We're gonna save billions except you're not because every single time. There's a government shutdown. We end up paying back pay to the government workers with interest. That's what happens it's wrong. It's bad. We never be in this place. And I really suspect. Are we gonna do you want to carry? I mean, they're talking right now. I don't know what exactly what is saying. But he said he will veto. Any Bill that doesn't include wall funds? He walked out when speaker Pelosi said, no to funding the wall. Wow. That is what is happening right now in DC. This is going to be a along partial government shutdown. I feel absolutely horrible for the workers the contractors who are out of work. And I'm telling you, I think a lot of this is in classic Trumpian fashion. Aim an attempt to distract the news yesterday that Paul Manafort. Paul Manafort in documents, his attorneys filed with the court, and by the way, I've taught attorneys how to have clean documents that lack the meta data. You know, when you use a word document, and you edit it or a PDF document yet, it retains what you deleted, you do know that there are ways of fixing that apparently manafort's attorneys did not and it came out. The Manafort was colluding with the Russians. So while President Trump. Well, the the Democrats are speaking right now, they do not look happy. They look very upset. This is not a partisan something. This is a policy difference. I believe that Steny Hoyer saying that right now in the last meeting every time we have a policy difference shutting down the government is the wrong thing to do. That is a belief Steny Hoyer saying that right now staking hostage to accomplish hurting people in the process, it's cetera. Yeah. That's Representative Steny Hoyer democratic majority leader in the house right now. I'm just telling you Paul Manafort he's caught in a conspiracy with the Russians. We were talking to attorney David Katz a little bit earlier like this is terrible for President Trump. He.
Dead brothel owner wins Nevada Assembly seat
"He called himself, the Trump of and used a very Trumpian style to rump through the primary even though Nevada's Republican party would not endorse him. It didn't matter last night. Hoff won a convincing victory over his democratic opponent claiming that assembly seat. There was one minor problem. Dennis Hof die. Died back on October sixteenth wild partying at his brothel. Didn't matter much Nevada voters being that he was a brothel owner a pimp and a death could not stop Dennis Hof. And you know, it shouldn't have stopped him. Because I mean, God knows other politicians who've been
Missouri Senate race: Claire McCaskill, Josh Hawley race intensifies
"You know, this could go either direction, but like you mentioned, you know, Heller. Was considered the most vulnerable vulnerable vulnerable Republican in the Senate, and he still is by he's actually been able to get around some of the issues that were really big Thornton inside at the beginning of the campaign. One of the big issues that Jackie Rosen who is a political newcomer. She's a first term congresswoman she was recruited by Harry Reid to run for the house in two thousand sixteen. So she doesn't have a lot of experience, but she's been going after Heller really hard on healthcare. Heller was one of those senators who came out initially when Senate Republicans were debating repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act and said, you know, I have some concerns about this. But then he eventually voted for that motion to proceed voted for the skinny repeal of the Affordable Care Act to get rid of the individual mandate. So Jackie Rosenthal, going after Hans saying, you know, you flip flopped on the Affordable Care Act. She's been running these really memorable ads featuring this orange inflatable to man, the kind of thing you see outside the car repair shops as sort of I come here type deal all she's been running ads accusing him of being Senator spineless saying he'd been blowing with the wind. Of Washington, and that sort of been her biggest attack against him is that he's cave to Senate Republican leadership, and he came to President Donald Trump going against the best interests of Nevada. And what's interesting about that is Heller actually said that he was ninety nine percent opposed. Donald Trump is sixteen election. He's been slowly warming to the president over the last two years. It was really happy about tax reform campaigning on that issue. So Jackie Rosen's than sort of trying to keep her her head above water, and sort of just run a straightforward campaign and the biggest attack against hers. This fact that she's a political newcomer running ads against her saying she's accomplished zero in the house. She accomplished zero before she announced her bid for the Senate. So why do you want to elect her when you know, I've been around? He I I was in the house in two thousand six he's been around for twelve years. So they have that experience contrast as well. Interesting because Heller was was not pro Trump. In fact, looked like he was gonna face a a primary from a very very trope pro-trump candidate Danny hurricane. And apparently Donald Trump called often Danny Tarquini and told him to run for congress instead. And now Heller seems to be pretty Trumpian running running in this campaign. Exactly. Yeah. When when janey Tarquini and who's run several political offices in Nevada over the years has never won. But but frequently runs he got in that race, and he actually said that Heller sort of waffling on the Affordable Care Act to repeal and replace was one of his main reasons for getting in the race. He was he was unhappy that Heller wasn't out in front behind the president from the get-go. But then you had Heller changing as though ultimately being a little bit more supportive of the agenda and that president ended up getting behind Taylor. And actually recently called him one of his his his best friends in in congress rally out here in Las Vegas. Okay.

Hillary Clinton still doesn't get it
"On Sunday. Hillary Clinton was interviewed on CBS Sunday morning and offered up some surprising new comments about her husband's actually not really that surprising new comments because they were kind of rehashing of old comments. I, I'm not surprised, but I am disappointed about her husband's affair with Monica Lewinsky when asked whether she felt her husband former president of the United States abused his power by having an affair with Monica Lewinsky. She said no added that Lewinsky quote wasn't adult when it happened later. She was asked if her husband should have stepped down after the scandal. And she said, absolutely not then in very Trumpian move. She pivoted the conversation to Trump's scandals, she said, but let me ask you this, where's the investigation of the current incumbent against whom numerous allegations have been made in which he dismisses denies ridicules. Okay. Megan, what did you think about this moment in Hillary Clinton's continued refusal to see how there's anything wrong with what happened. So I have like a lot of friends who are bad, and I don't mean like bad people but bad in the sense of you'd have to like, give them a talking to before you like brought them to a black tie. Event, you know, they might get a little wild, but they're my asshole. You know, like I'm loyal to them because I'm like, they're my girl forever. And Hillary continues to disappoint and enrage me. But I'm like, you know what? She's my asshole. I. Well, it's just so hard because we we, as as this self-aware group of the population have to constantly be like, why did they do that? This Elizabeth Warren DNA it's like this constant like disappointment because we are self aware and we do have self reflection and the Republicans just get to do none of that. They just get to be like, Yup, I don't know. Lindsey, Graham said another racist, crazy thing, but that's our guy. And so I have decided that that's how I'm going to be now I'm gonna have no. Well, no, I have to have some because then I am deeply upset, but. I just don't know. She makes it so hard to to defend her and I do. I really do love her, and I think she is so valuable in so many ways. And so then I want to be like, can you just stop interviewing her? Can you just interview someone else? I I liked Hillary, right, right after the election where she was like in the woods and we maybe saw her with like a Cape taking long walks in in in the woods, and maybe she like had, I think she had dinner with Kate McKinnon and there was like a photo shoot, and it was like, oh, well, 'cause they'd be talking about and it was beautiful. And now this kind of stuff happens and it's very disappointing. It's very disappointed and I'm not about silencing women by any means except for when they need to be silent. And I just, I man, this is asking thing questions. I think. I think he'll dog you gotta you gotta just PR team should be like, we're done. Actually. We're done forever. I just, I think that this is not. I don't think Hillary Clinton is the only person that has these views like in the I think that this is a generational thing do and it's sort of. Reflective. I read this piece in the guardian for I'm forgetting right now off the top of my head who wrote it, but this person who wrote the piece in the guardian pointed out that it's a

"And at the end of the day, when Susan Collins gave her speech when which she guests at the whole country and was willing to stand up in front of everybody and make this big big, you know, sort of grand. Statement telling us that wreck Kevin is not the man. We saw their own is just days before acting like a, you know, a petulant schoolyard bully in front of the the US Senate. No, that never happened. He's really wonderful person. He's a great guy and he's going to be fine. You know, all you people, the protesters and the special interests and all this. She said she could've easily been Donald Trump. I mean, it's her own particular spin on it, but everything she said in that speech was Trumpian. And so you know, we see the full absorption of whatever was tattered remains. There were of the Republican establishment came together and they're, they are and I don't see any, but I don't see it going back in any way to you. I mean, when winter these, what? How are these people going to going to retract any of this stuff? I mean, this is them this through they are well, I think they're going to be able to retract it if there, if there's no. No. I mean, if there's not a broader understanding of that's what happened. I mean, so point case or case in point I should say Chuck Schumer once again, just yesterday basically crafts a deal. I'm hesitant to say deal because usually there's a, there's two aspects of deal, right? The give and the get. Chuck Schumer crafts deal yesterday to essentially fast-track fifteen Trump judges three on three or four on the court of appeals. I think it was. These are all lifetime positions on federal on the federal judiciary, a stencil. It was so that democratic senators going can go home and and campaign and protect themselves. It is the case, my understanding that it would take thirty senators to essentially slow down this process dramatically. And that would have meant keeping every Republican center Senator in Washington, right? Like each Senator could have been responsible for talking for an hour which would like created or would have created the allowed for thirty hours of debate on each of the the confirmation or the nominees, and all the Republicans would have to be there to vote. And that's if Chuck Schumer's not willing to do this or can't convince his caucus do this. Why should anyone else take the judiciary seriously? Like thirty judges with lifetime. Appointments have been brought to the supreme to federal courts within the last sixty days and hide. Heitkamp and also problem with the media too. I mean, even the left wing media, Heidi Heitkamp could very well lose her race in North Dakota now because of a ruling by the eighth circuit court on on on a voter ID case, right? It went up to the supreme court for four bounces back down and it's the ruling of this of this eighth circuit court. That's gonna hold. There are eleven justices on their ten of them are appointed by Republican presidents, including three by Trump. There's one Justice who was appointed by Obama that Justice was the one who dissented in the two to one decision that is basically going to disenfranchise thousands of native Americans because they have a PO box on their ID instead of a street address the, there's a, there's a disconnect here. There's a disconnect a reason why you can't get the people on the left to care about the judges because Chuck Schumer. There's never going to be a mass protest against Chuck Schumer to not, you know, usher in fifteen thirty judges at the wave of a hand, but that it has to come from the leadership..

That's not true. Anybody? Think about it. Anything? He said, they're being incredibly entertaining. Was even not true. It's a fascinating way of being able to cut through the BS. And a purely Trumpian way, and you take a look at where we say you ready for a scorecard here for a moment. Pretty remarkable people will sit there and mock him when he said, I've done more than anybody has in the first two year, or whatever, you know. Oh, yeah. You know, seriously, get this. You know, any executive actions. Donald Trump has engaged in since he became president. Three hundred and fourteen I keep up with this crap to three hundred and fourteen. Yeah. I mean think about how many days we've had. Supreme court Justice tomorrow. It's going to have his second. Tax reform. The the amount of progress. He's made despite the obstacles in front of him truly remarkable. We have the best economy in a generation. Best academy in the generation.

"Ninety two three SM. Bruce St James and Pamela Hughes. When was the last time that Trump was here the downtown rally? What's interesting is that a year ago? Yeah. Yeah. Remember that rally firing rubber bullets? Away from the convention down there. I was down there before the teargassing began. And walked around the area and saw the protests the counter protests, the people going, and it was interesting. It was like July, August warm. I remember because we were hanging out why they weren't these street corners just handing out water to everyone to keep them from passing out. Well, the word went out just a little while ago that Trump was coming back to the valley to hold another one of these rallies. And immediately thought it was kind of interesting because the minute that I they said, you know, they're looking for a place immediately, a lot of places immediately started saying, yeah. But you can't come here. Like, the Phoenix convention center said. And you gotta read between the lines here. They said, well, we don't have anything booked, but we're doing maintenance that day. We're we're cleaning. We're washing our hair. We're cleaning the carpets. We we couldn't possibly have anybody in here. Interesting. And so it became will wear would this rally beheld? Well, now, we know that according to permits because you know, you have to go through all this that Trump will not be coming to the. Yes, we found out yesterday that President Donald Trump is not going to be making a visit here to the valley this month, initially, it was reported that he had been looking at some date certain different venues, and that caused some concerns for a couple of different organizations out there because of what you just heard what had devolved after the stop here in two thousand seventeen. But it's a it's a question of did the president decide, you know, what I don't really feel like going to Phoenix. I've got other things that I need or ties long flight. I don't know if it was. Factor. Too much into the equation. He was in Vegas yesterday. Or was it more along the lines beyond the venue? You know, speculation there. Take a look at the political climate for which we're in right now in the state of Arizona. There are some some tough races. Sure. And it depends on which polls you're looking at to find out how tough these are. But they have become national races that parties on both sides of the aisle all across the country. Not just here in this state or watching where previously racist in Arizona were never competitive. At least are versus de McCain was gonna win. Ahead of time. Just put somebody upping they'll get they'll get thirty five percent of the vote and they're going to lose. Yeah. It's a bit of a different situation right now. We know that after Senator Kyle had retired Senator flake had one. Yeah. And then Senator flake decided Bernardi handily, by the way. Yeah. Not going to run for reelection, which is really opened up that seed that seat now one way or another is going to be filled by a woman. It'll be the first time Arizona has a female Senator which is super cool. Yeah. It'll either be Martha mcsally on the right for the Republicans or Curson cinema on the left four Democrats in that race is tight. Yeah. I mean, regardless of which way, you think it might be leaning. It is tight and it's tighter than a Senate race in the state of Arizona has been in quite some time. Okay. Within the margin of error. It's tight. I would assume that Martha mcsally would want President Trump to come here. In stumped for her. Because you know, what he's he's talked about her before the first woman ever to fly a fighter jet in combat in US history. And I've gotten to know a very well. And she is terrific congresswoman, Martha mcsally. Okay. So you've got a tight race here in Arizona. We've heard about the Trump bump before why wouldn't Martha mcsally want the president here to stump for her. I think that there are calculations that are going on from different politicians lets us Representative mix alley to start with in her primary. She was not the most Trumpian of Republicans. She was the least Trump east of the three running mkx, Sally ward and our pile. Yeah. But you also gotta look at you know, ward and our pile. Grading on a curve. She said Trump ES, she was the least Trump, but she also tried to move closer to truck greet in that primary knowing that she was running against as a congresswoman during the two thousand sixteen election. She did not go to the RMC. National convention. She yes, she'd been critical of this president during a primary we know that you kinda gotta move farther to the fringes in order to get your party's nominee in. She played the political game in the primary and it worked, but. Would she not gain some value from having the president come in speak with her? And I think that is the calculation play along with me here. Okay. Right now, if you look at some of the polling Trump is polarizing to say, the least oh, yeah. We know that. But what about here in our state right now in the state new polling that came out recently that showed that Martha mcsally? Had higher approval ratings than Donald Trump. Congresswoman Maxine had higher approval ratings in the state. Okay. So how does it help her to stand on stage with Donald Trump? She doesn't need to come down to his level. She needs to appeal to people away from the Trump base. Okay. So okay. So you're reading this as to say Bruce that by her already having a higher approval rating, if you are a Trump supporter, you're already on the mic Sally train. You're certainly not voting for cinema. Okay. So is that a fair way to Sally is going after are the moderates the people in the middle. That are undecided. We know in the state of Arizona is the majority of voters don't call themselves already. Okay. So kind of game fearing this out. If you're going after the moderate voter, you don't wanna be standing next Trump, especially during metoo cavenaugh all the stuff that's going on the last thing. You wanna do is get a picture of you standing next to him having them. Hold your hand up. Okay. Okay. You're you're making a compelling arguments. The voter without having to stand next to him and turn away the anti-trump. I'm still trying to peel away whether or not this was a president's decision or whether he wasn't really welcomed here. So let's let's move because if he if he decided to come here, and for example, Martha mcsally or governor Ducey didn't show up on stage with them. That makes it even harder on them. Well, I mean, you know, the president can hold his own campaign rallies and drop their names. I mean, do they have to be there? When he shows up in your backyard, and you don't show up, isn't that a defacto? That's the I'm washing my hair that night. I couldn't make it to your rally the wooden then play well to the moderates out there because it's upset the Trump. He's. But the Trump supporters aren't going to get so upset about that. Then voting for Pearson cinemas by not vote for MC. Sally. They might sit it out. Okay. Well, let's move on from this. So you can you can you can get there defacto support by just not being against him or not even making a tried. Exactly. Try not to make Trump part of your your argue. Okay. Let's move on from the Senate race. And let's talk about the gubernatorial race the race for governor. Here we've got governor Ducey running for re election against Democrat David Garcia, and let's be honest. Do see has a decent lead. This is not a nip and tuck race as of right now. It's not in every single poll has a decent lead in most of them. All he's outside the margin of error and hasn't been every single Paul. It depends on which poll you're looking at. And so while I think Ducey still has a lead. Yeah. Not every single poll has him leading. So let let let let's do the same thing with with with governor Ducey as we just did there with congresswoman Martha mcsally, let's let's say the president shows up here in Phoenix and governor Ducey does it appear because from from what I remember what I've been able to kinda decipher here. I don't know of a time when governor Ducey has actually appeared with Donald Trump at like one of these kinds of campaign rallies wasn't at the one last year. I know he okay downtown if it has something to do with his job because I know the governor Ducey has gone to DC is as I sometimes when lands at the at the airport, you meet them at the he has gone to Trump rallies. He's just has never appeared alongside them. I am fewer tonight because I believe the right direction is the one that puts a conservative Justice on the supreme court to replace. Yeah. That was back in two thousand sixteen exactly a ringing endorsement of Donald Trump. That's kind of what I got there. Interesting. Well, Trump is not coming here. And I think there's plenty of reasons. And I think some of it is he would show up here to quote campaign for Republicans who don't want to be seen standing next to him. Well, there are some rumors though, swirling about maybe he will he'll go up to either prostate or or flags much much friendlier audience up there lot less opposition. But then I mean, governor Ducey is the governor of all of Arizona. Up to Prescott Martha cherry book, Representative Mick Sally. Bent in Tucson that night. I'm sorry. I can't make it with the when the president the United States shows up in your own backyard. See you can make that same argument. What happens right? Hey, it's football Friday.

"Okay. So the president of the United States reacts as you would expect them to react to an op Ed from inside his administration killers. In the house calling from upstairs on the phone, Omar got so President Trump reacts in typical Trumpian fashion. He is in front of a crowd of sheriffs who are some of his closest allies because he's very prolonged enforcement. And here's President Trump, ripping into the failing New York Times, the New York Times and CNN and all of these phony media outlets will be out of business from she'll be out of business because there'll be nothing to write and there'll be nothing of interest. So if the failing New York Times has an anonymous editorial, can you believe it anonymous meeting a gutless editorial, we're doing a great job? Okay. And and the truth is he's not wrong about being gutless. Like, if the person actually wants to take a stand against the administration publicly, quit quit and talk about how terrible it was or alternatively. If you actually want to work inside the administration and make it a better place. Shut your face. Why are you going to the New York Times to brag about how you anonymously are helping the administration from the inside except to provide yourself. Over later. This is very obviously self interested. Do you really think anybody New York Times printed an anonymous op Ed from somebody inside the Obama administration making the same claims highly highly highly doubtful because printing anonymous op EDS is kind of frowned upon is kind of frowned upon for pretty good reason. Which is that there's no way to vet declaims of the person who's actually making those claims like we don't know the senior official is it could be some low level person who's met from once they're hundreds of people working in the White House hundreds of them. So that is quite plausible. But President Trump then goes to Twitter, and he decides that he is going to lose it. So President Trump had a couple of tweets. He tweeted out does the so-called senior administration official really exists. Or is it just the failing New York Times with another phony SARS if the gutless anonymous person does indeed exist, the tens must for national security purposes turned him over to government at once. So no nursing and do that. That's how thing doesn't have to turn people over to the federal government for writing an op-ed that rips on the administration, that's not natural thing. And then the president had one more tweak all caps treason question, Mark. So I guess now we're gonna execute this person. We're gonna find them prescribed penalty in the constitution for treason is death. So presumably we will find this person take them out back and triple them he'll take his tie off. And then he will strangle him with with the oversized red tie. It'll be quite amusing. But it is also true that this op Ed does no good. It is actually deeply counterproductive. Because all it does in the end is Dr President Trump to throw out anyone who maybe actually trying to curb those worst excesses. And now we get to spend months trying to trying to drill down on how it is drill down on on. Exactly how it is that this this happened in the first place coming up. The Senate Judiciary committee has having useless counterproductive hearings. On Brad Kavanagh, who's President Trump's pick to replace Justice. Kennedy on the supreme court and things.
