"united america" Discussed on Outside Podcast

"So baritone date, you know, the whole intention behind what outside magazine did with our best towns issue this year was to upend our usual way of judging where we want to live. Instead of focusing on the places, just with access to amazing outdoor spots, we wanted to highlight the communities that are striving to make the outdoors more inclusive and more sustainable. That's why we wanted you to interview kamau for our cover story. But what I want to know is what you and come out think about that. And what do you think about this effort? What's your advice for media outlets like outside that have historically done a poor job of accounting for race and inequality in our storytelling? And now we're trying to move in the right direction. What are we supposed to do? Mike, man, my full answer to that question is a book or ten. There's so much to get into to try to address that. But what I'll say is this. I think there's a combination required here of us moving through the fear and shame that an honest accounting of a history might generate. There's such a discussion now about what kind of history do we teach and are we trying to shame America and I don't see it that way. I see it just trying to love America trying to know America, the good the bad and the ugly, which any healthy loving relationship involves a deep knowing, so let's know our country and love her not in spite of those frailties and failures, but because of them. I also want to see us committing to using the power we have for some collective and not just individual benefit. And when I ask komal this question, his answer was you gotta go for it. You gotta commit all the way. And the key is, especially when it's not working out the way you want. You know, especially when you mess up. The big thing is like, you have to accept people are always afraid of, what if I get it wrong? Oh, you're gonna get it wrong. And then you have to be willing to not to clean up your mistakes. And to admit your mistakes and to not equivocate in an apology and show people because you're only gonna show people that you have changed over time. So if outside magazine hires one person to write one article and that one person is from a perspective that's never been announced at magazine, everybody claps and they tweet it out. And then that person never gets another article outside magazine, and also more people like that person don't get articles in, then you're full of shit. So when they ask me if you want to when I got the thing about do you want to be able to cover? I'm like, this is going to be the lowest selling issue of outside magazine ever. And that's going to offend them they're going to like, we shouldn't have done that. Don't ever do that again. So I hope I would imagine that because I'm not the typical outside magazine person. I'm not even in my life known as an outside person. You know what I mean? So if some executive or some accountant goes, well, look, this sold X and normally we say, X plus three, so they can't do this again, and then whose fault is that? Is that mine? Is that the first new green lit this? Or is it an indicated that like, oh, we need to keep working on this and educate our audience and figure out how to expand. And how to sort of make this work. You have to keep raising the stakes of your commitment to this new day. W kamau bell is on the cover of outside magazine's September October print edition.

Do they give the same talking points. Republicans need to get out there and say democrats are calling black people dumb and stupid because they don't have enough to get idea to vote. That's what they lied about. Voter suppression on. That's harris was suggesting about rural voters as well You know but actually i we did. It's interesting call. Because i have the information on this right in front of me and we researched it Earlier today and last night and before covert as a matter of fact before kobe tool out of the last three presidential elections african american turnout was higher than white voter. Turnout percentage wise and that was without unsolicited mail in ballots without drop boxes without extended voting deadlines without any other relaxed covert rules democrats now and sister absolutely necessary to be fair to minorities and those that live in rural areas you go back to the washington post april twenty nine twenty thirteen.

Baseball the same thing with Did you see the numbers yet for last night. It's all star game. I didn't even want to mention it. After they took the all star game out of atlanta based on a lie of stacey. Abrams raphael warnock and jim crow. Two point zero biden cost the state of georgia estimates. Have it at about one hundred million dollars in revenue a hundred million dollars for businesses in georgia and on top of it pretty much everybody in georgia's being labeled a racist and it's joe state of delaware that has the far more restrictive voting laws and he never lifted a finger to change any law in his own home state garcia that he's weaponized the department of justice now to go after the state of georgia and going after other states that are putting into place simple commonsense voter integrity measures wall voter.

Joe biden's state doesn't have a single dropbox joe biden's state. They demand a reason. If you want an absentee or or of a vote by mail georgia doesn't require that and now the department of justice the attorney general of the united states isn't going after joe state. They're going after the state of georgia when you say jim crow two point. Oh you're implying. Racism here and joe repeats the lie yesterday and others have also repeated lie.

"Joe biden's all on board democrats are on board The progressive wing of the. But they're on the road to mediocrity and institutionalize failure when when americans are being taught to hate themselves to hate their country. This is all part of the new woke mentality You know and you've got to capitulate her. You'll be silenced. Or threatened or punished or cancelled or exiled and you know the very institutions sean. They're supposed to promote diversity of thought that those institutions are being exploited to radically dissent any form of free thinking. I imagine students in american classroom being taught quote all white people. Play a part in perpetuating systemic racism. That's what kids in buffalo were told they were also told that our education system perpetuates spirit murder against african american kids now as a parent. Your child comes home in repeats that and you say wait a minute. That's true it's racist and you'd be right. I mean any sentence that begins with all white people is by definition wrong and and the spirit murder in a classroom in.

"And suppress diversity of character individual merit. Forget about it. All matters urban seen through the lens of race and racism. And if you resist you'll be demonized and cancel. But i must say as i pointed out on the podcast. The good news people like deborah flora are stepping forward and speaking up there fighting back fed up by being told there either racist or oppressed victims. Twenty-five states now crafted legislation prohibiting. The teaching of critical race through eight states have already banned or limited critical race. Three in classrooms so the momentum shifted. There is this groundswell of anger That's directed at you know the radical progresses who've commandeered the educational system and thank goodness for people like deborah flora. Look at. what's happening deborah. And to me there there are some very basic fundamental things. If we had school choice. I think the schools that would get the most dollars from parents they they would be the schools that stick to the fundamentals reading writing math science and if parents can't agree on on how to teach kids human sexuality or any of these other issues. I i would argue that. If they really are ev- it's that important of the schools will let parents opt into these these classes after school and keep the school doors. Open an extra hour if it's that important to them but in the meantime let's get our kids doing the fundamentals computers for example. Every you know we're missing the basics every day as we now move into social justice issues absolutely you hit the nail right on the head. The reality is the more woke. The classrooms have been. The more students are being damaged shares. Some statistics at the beginning. You know america used to have the number one educational system amongst industrialized nation.

"The rules would be in in the of a pandemic for the centers for disease control. It's a lot of power nobody's fired. Nobody's held accountable for this massive failure. I mean we're we're literally ripping the rungs of a ladder for every child. Education is the key to every child success. The latin derivative of education is to bring forth from within. And yet these. we're failing. Our our children specially in blue states and blue cities. It is a spectacular. Frankly fail that is unforgivable to me and it's getting worse now instead of back to the basics fundamentals right if you're a pitcher and your game is odd you go back to the fundamentals. He you know you start your wind up and and you go back to the things that got you there in the first place. We're not doing that in our public schools. Now we're we're teaching woke ism cancel culture and now the battle of of parents around the country is battling back against critical race theory. One such parent is deborah flora. Here's a nonprofit and that's parents united america. They've mobilizing parents not only against crt but all matters of efforts by school boards to shut parents down and shut him out of the education process. Look what they were teaching kids in first grade in this. You know very expensive private school in new york city. You know six year olds at teaching. You know talking about masturbation and and other sex ed. So over the top and inappropriate contradicting the values of parents and parents are torn. If they speak up then the kids get thrown out of the the private elite school that they're paying fifty sixty grand a year four and then they're stuck in the failing new york city public school system so they shut up. Greg jarrett is well-briefed on this yet. An incredible podcast recently on this. And that is the insanity of of crt just recently deborah flora rebuked the colorado school board for using critical race theory. They both join us now And thank you. Deborah flora and. Thank you greg jarrett you so much for having me on. I greatly appreciate it. You whimper for the school board you claim parents have been left out of the process to design the districts educational program on every level. How how was the reaction. Well it's actually very sinai star. Parents united america two years ago was because they shove through comprehensive sex ed which is explicit and some parents were awake but they not enough yet. Then you had the gender fluidity and preschool then you had the covert shutdown where parents began to finally see what would actually going on and now this is really the tipping point. Parents are tired of being told As they did in our school district that we are dissenters. Basically to be ignored the teachers unions refer to it as barriers and parents are standing up. Finally saying we're the primary stakeholder we will not be ignored and it's time we get back to the school board the educated the understanding that students do better statistically when parents are actively involved and engaged studies left or might show that and so the the rising up. I'm very excited about what's happening now. And the the most vocal of the parents that are reaching out to parents. United america dot org are organization are really the black parents because they see the inherent racism in critical race theory. That's telling their own children that done. How can't succeed unless there is an equity policy which is not the same equality they have to dumb things down raised things up and i even know his science teacher by the way who was told that she had to dumb down her education so that black students could maybe perhaps learn says..

We're beginning to understand a lot more about what's going on in our public school system more than ever and a lot of different fronts. I'm it is amazing. That per capita the united states of america spends more per student on education annually than any other country in the industrialized world. And then when compared with results you know we usually end up coming in anywhere between thirty seventh and fortieth in terms of the proficiency of our children and in reading and math. We're not even teaching our kids the fundamentals anymore. New york city's a great case. In point they spend on average twenty seven thousand dollars per student as talking about a recent test That kids in new york took and and only six percent were proficient in math and reading. We've discussed at length this the baltimore highschool school system there actually the second highest per capita spending state in our city in the in the entire country and they have thirteen public high schools. Not a single kid proficient in math And and reading not one. How do you have thirteen. High schools fail that bad. I've talked at length about this unholy alliance with teachers unions and and the stranglehold. They have on the democratic party. That is reliant upon them to get the vote out and and to take a dues from rank and file teachers and and use that money to only elect democratic candidates to the point where the benefits of so amazing they actually even during the biden administration. They were getting the opportunity to write. What is you know the curriculum or or what..

Now he's weaponized the department of justice To go after states like georgia and now they're doing democrats are doing everything possible. Just a one time all eliminate the legislative filibuster. Just one time to get our election reform. Through which i would. Argue is unconstitutional because it strips power away stated power from the states in terms of time. Place manner of elections in their individual states. Nobody in the media has the courage. Stephen point out delaware's restrictive voting laws. And this also and then joe is out there playing the race card as he did yesterday. And we've we've gone over this and in great specificity in detail and the biggest crisis since the civil war and jim crow again. He brings up jim crow yesterday. Two point oh here we go again and i'm thinking. This is the same joe biden. That said all of that partnered. With the former klansman the filibuster this historic civil rights act voting rights act of sixty four sixty five to stop. The integration of our schools. Bussing didn't want public schools to become joe biden's words racial jungles and now he plays the race card and nobody in the media says a word. Nobody says a word about delaware's restrictive voting him Joe you represented delaware for decades. Why did you never lift a single finger to make the laws less draconian in delaware.

"If you don't get back and your risk level is going to be higher. So now we see this kind of new mini surge in america and american way ahead of the rest of the world. We're coming out of this thing but the rest of the world isn't because they're not backs. And i always say believe your own eyes if there are countries that still are locked down. Because there's no back but your country is not down because of the fact the vacs works. And that's where i am on it. But i don't want to impose anything but i understand the public health ramifications of spreading kobe. I the everybody understands a bill. I mean and and that's why i'm urging people to be really smart and being smart means being careful and being smart means take it seriously being smart means research of anyone as a phone. They can research that. They have at their fingertips as much information as they can ever ever absorb talking to doctor. Your doctor's taking you know your medical history your medical condition into account. These are things. I can't do as a as a radio and tv host. I mean i'd love to play doctor but we be responsible but by the way i'm trying to be responsible i you know what i love my audience bill. I want them to live. That's right and we want everybody to healthy including children. So if you've got to make a decision get back unless there's a reason why you should. That's my philosophy but it's been politicized and then that answers another factor into the decision making the left and far left. They liked the totalitarian nature. A politicians telling people what they can do. What businesses can. Do you see. It used to be that the far right was the totalitarian people. They hitler's and mussolini's and they used to be that but now it's totally the and argues that the socialist left. But i don't wanna digress. Conversation at digress. In this conversation go ahead.

I do believe in science. I believe in vaccination science. But but i dr on i don't tell people what to do. They are urging people that listen to this. Show take it seriously. Do your research talk to your doctor. Doctors people in the medical profession you trust and based on your unique medical history and your condition. You gotta make your own mind up here. I can't do it for you but please be careful. Please be smart now at that. Said we were all told. If we got the vaccine bill would return to normal now over the weekend. We hear the administration saying that. Private companies universities if they want mandate vaccinations. They're fine with it. Now we have kathleen scibilia saying unvaccinated. Americans should not be allowed to work or have access to children on top of new york. California other places. Mandating mask still. Your thoughts clearly unconstitutional But in france now you can't do anything without a so called vaccine passport. Their constitution not nearly as strong as ours What does some research on this. And here's how i shake down with it number one. Medical science doesn't know how long cove antibodies stay in person after they have kobe. So that's the problem with denying vaccine. Saying well i had so i can't get it again. It's true but you don't know how long you're going to be a mute. Well here's what we do know one thing we do know. For example antibody levels will decrease over time but there are other t cell. Antibodies not detected not measured. That would recognize if you contracted the virus came into contact with the virus a second time and that that would provide immunity to what level. I'm not a doctor. i'm not gonna play one But it would provide immunity for those that would be quote reinfected. The problem is spreading it and so some believe and my doctors. 'cause i've talked to them and they're really good. Say look the more caution you can bring to this the better and that seems to make sense to me. So people who won't take the vaccine is their constitutional right not to do that. The government can't force you to take a vaccine but it can deny you access to schools and private businesses. So if you don't have your measles knock inoculation child can't go to the public school in new york state where we live so long. It's a public health law. So i tell everybody look your life is going to be much more difficult..

The great one is He lays out the case at seven chapters. It may be the longest book that he's ever written final chapter we choose. Liberty is over ten thousand words which is a lot for a chapter in in a book but it offers the antidote. The solution Some things we've talked about other things we've talked about it. I mean it's it's an in-depth you know. Only in the way that mark levin with his his unique background. As you know. Ed mace's chief of and and constitutional lawyer could lay out.

I mean there's a lot happening here you know it's not just integrity. Every single thing that joe biden is saying about jim. Crow two point. Oh is a lie. The fact that the media will play this later in the program that ignores his history on the issue of race is repulsive to me and it shows and exposes the mob and the media's bias because of it was donald trump that partnered with the former klansman to stop integration of public schools school bus ings. And saying that it doesn't want public schools to be in. Joe biden's words racial jungles. We know what would happen. You know for the first time ever. An african american it is neat and clean and articulate storybook man and all the other you can't go to a seven eleven dunkin donuts unless you have a slight indian accent and all this crap partnering to stop the integration of schools. That's his background. that's his history. And the mob the media democrats give this guy a pass just like the hunter biden. Foreign business dealings lies that we now know. Now if there's any justice in america anymore and i'm very worried about the attorney general now weaponize in the department of justice and not an ignoring the restrictive voting laws in delaware. But going after the very accessible voting laws georgia already cost georgia one hundred million dollars last night and in revenues that they would have projected although nobody watched apparently the baseball game the all star game.

"Anyone else is going to provide for you now. Remember the democrats are claiming that without having without last year's cove emergency where we didn't have even though the law required that they should have made accommodations but partisan observers to observe as the law calls for. They didn't do that. they shouldn't have had in georgia. You know two separate standards for voting elax standard voting by mail on a rigorous standard voting in person. They should've they should've followed the state constitution in the state of pennsylvania which has very limited circumstances where people can vote by mail. They just they just bypass their own state constitution. That should have been taken up by the supreme court. It wasn't and as the chief justice articulated in a in a stinging dissent in that four. Three decision in wisconsin the chief justice of the supreme court or wisconsin that they better follow the law and until they do. This is going to happen again and again and again so these are the measures now. The argument that they're making democrats are is that without last year's cove emergency voting rules which include what unsolicited mail in ballots and ballot drop boxes and lack signature cecchi and verification relax regulations. It's going to be harder for many americans especially african americans and as communists saying rural americans to vote now. If that were true an african american turnout must have been way down before we implemented the anything and everything goes and no laws need to be followed. Cova rules of twenty twenty because in two out of the three presidential race is. I'm sorry elections before. Covid african american turnout voter. Turnout was higher than in terms of percentage than white. Voter turnout without unsolicited mail in ballots. Without drop boxes without extending motor deadlines without any other relaxed. Kobe rules that democrats now. Insist are necessary to be fair to minorities so you go way back to two thousand thirteen. The old voting rules hall in place the associated press noticing that african american voter turnout had improved so significantly that is seeded white. Turn out in the two previous presidential elections this from the washington post april twenty nine two thousand thirteen. The ap associated press is out with a study of the twenty twelve election. They concluded that african american voter turnout. The african american voter turnout rate exceeded the white turn out rate for the first time. It's almost certainly true. That american turnout was higher in terms of the rate than white. Turn out last fall but it was also true in two thousand eight when you look at. The census data the exit polling the ap found that african american voters thirteen percent of the electorate. They make up. Twelve percent of the population and white voters represents seventy two percent of the electorate and outperforming their seventy one point one percent share of the population but not the same degree. They have in past elections. And if you exclude. People didn't respond to the census. The african american turnout rate also surpassed the white turnout rate from four years. Prior in two thousand and eight from seventy six point six percent to seventy three point six percent. And that's right there in the washington post that's the ap and that but that's not what they're telling you now if you don't support these member these the first question is why won't.

"I'm jonathan kaye. Part opinion writer for the washington post in host of the cape up podcast at the washington post and it is my pleasure to welcome you to the ninety second street. Wise virtual event simone sanders in conversation about her book. No you shut up. Speaking truth to power and reclaiming america's simone sanders. Welcome to the ninety second street. Y thank you jonathan. I'm glad to be here you know. I thought i'd do this little couch situation today. Because every time at the ninety second street y i just feel like it is a comfy like sanding where we really settle in have good meaty conversations of. I tried to create that environment here today. All right well. Let's let's have that that meeting conversation. This book was fun. Your book was fun in it. It went in in ways that i did not expect. It is memoir. It is at its advice for for young people. It's a it's a blueprint and we're gonna get into that in a moment. But i just have to jump in right away right now. You are senior adviser to the democratic presidential nominee. Joe biden last election cycle. You're the national press secretary for senator bernie sanders in two thousand sixteen for all for myself and everyone who's watching. How did that happen. And i want to start with bernie sanders. Why him in two thousand sixteen. Don't look i. I wanna say i am just again very grateful to be here and i love this. The question you started with because i know this is the question everybody really wants to answer. How did this happen. Why will tell you that. And i went to go work for senator sanders in twenty fifteen and i went to work for him because the conversations that he was having out on the campaign trail where the conversations that frankly i was having with my friends i i wanted to be able to contribute to what senator sanders was saying and knowing everything that i know right now given everything that i've experienced I would make the decision to go back and do it all over again in two thousand fifteen i would. If i go back into time i would go back and still make the same decision. I'm proud of the work. We did when i made the decision that i wanted to go back out on the campaign trail this cycle because i you know i was enjoying my time as a political commentator. I used to go to branch. I used to go on vacation now. None of those things are happening. Some of that is due to cope. Nineteen and the current president of the united states. Mismanagement of that situation which i'm sure we will have opportunity to touch on later. I'll but some of it is because on the campaign trail. There is no brunch okay. There are no vacations. There is a work for a finite amount of time and the clock is ticking as we are having this conversation we are yet a couple couple of weeks a number of weeks just a couple of minutes away from election day and when i made the conversation the decision to go back on the campaign trail i really i talked to lots of different folks as you all may remember their upwards of more than twenty people running to be the democratic nominee. And when i had the to sit down with vice president biden and his wife dr jill biden joe biden. Said to me something. Y'all have heard him say a number of different times. He told me he was running for president because he thought that what he was saying from trump wasn't abuse of power and he could not sit back and watch an abuse of power go unchecked that he didn't want to look back on this election cycle unthank- what if i would have ran for president and that was similar to something i had experienced. I didn't wanna look back on this cycle and thing. What if. I didn't jump in and i told him i said me too sir and i'm live but i want to work for somebody. I don't wanna be the president. And then joe biden told me that he felt we were in a battle for the soul of the nation and that he was running and he will be talking about rebuilding the backbone of the country and uniting america and that struck me because i felt like in that moment that joe biden correctly diagnosed. What america was actually experienced. I

Michael Flynn: Trump pardons ex-national security adviser

"Former. Us national security adviser. Michael flynn who was convicted during the justice department inquiry into alleged russian interference in the two thousand sixteen election has been pardoned by president. Donald trump trump called his own action. A great honor whilst house speaker. Nancy pelosi called it an act of grave corruption and abrazen brazen abuse of power. Well which is it. And what kind of precedent does it set. Let's get the opinion of scott lucas professor of us. Politics at the university of birmingham scott. Good morning to you. Good morning do remind us of flynn's short-lived term. I think it was just three weeks in the white house. Well while it was only three weeks in the white house there was an import run up to the while he was on the trump campaign in two thousand sixteen. Because michael. Flynn lied to the fbi on two occasions and pleaded implied pleaded guilty to lying to the fbi about a number of conversations. He had with the russian ambassador. Sergei kislyak and december two thousand sixteen. Why were those conversations important because they were about an incoming trump administration lifting sanctions on russia. That had just been imposed by president. Barack obama over moscow's interference in the two thousand sixteen election and interference which of course favoured donald trump. So the was that that michael flynn on behalf of the trump campaign or trump transition was trading immediate political favors in exchange for russia's help The initially the trump administration tried to keep planning office in january february two thousand and seventeen but he had to be sacrificed trump's trying to create a firewall to prevent further investigation. That investigation didn't stop of course accommodated in the miller report which found that there was cooperation between the trump folks and the russians but the right wing insisted and kept pressing trump. You must pardon. Michael flynn he became like this icon for the misinformation that this was all a deep state plot to overthrow the president and we do at some point. That trump would probably pardon fled. It just so happens to come. Easy as trump is trying to cling onto the white house after losing the election in november. We'll see what kind of precedent does this set. I mean do you think that we'll see trump do similar in this. Lame duck period. Oh yeah i think there will be more. And i think that's for a couple of reasons but first let me remind you. That is not just that michael. Flynn actually lied to the fbi about the russia case. It's also that michael flood may have faced prosecution over being an unregistered agent for a foreign power. Taking hundreds of thousands of dollars shrunk turkey and russia for his work while he was on the trump campaign to the extent of making on voice of the turkish government. About extraditing a cleric who is considered an opponent of president aired on And that michael. Flynn was making more money of trying to get nuclear power plants for saudi arabia while he was on the trump campaign and the trump administration In other words trump is willing to give flint a pass for that for two reasons. One he wants to bury the trump russia a fair and trump still faces possible charges over obstruction of justice over trump russia. And secondly michael. Flynn could testify against donald trump in a number of proceedings that are ongoing at state and federal level. Trump wants to cut off that possibility. But you know what michael not. The only person who could testify against donald trump avoid that possibility and of course after trump's term ends in january. He is as you say likely to face. Many legal challenges is there any way he can preemptively. Pardon himself no. We don't think so. I mean no president has tried to pardon himself so we're on noodle legal ground but mostly glands say no that power can't be used to get yourself off the hook what donald trump could do however days before january twentieth. Joe biden takes office resign. Let mike pence become president mike pence pardons donald trump. That is an extraordinary scenario to to think of if it didn't happen in the interest of a united america do you think joe biden might pardon trump if he is convicted. I don't think biden will pardon trump because the scale of the abuse of power by trump as well as the possible crimes is is great probably greater than that of richard nixon in the nineteen seventies. But i what. I do think joe biden will do as is that he will not possibly. He will not push the justice department To do federal investigations in other words. Trump is in sort of a limbo but of lambeau at the federal level. However what joe biden can't do is issue commands to the new york state prosecutors who were compiling a series of cases against what would then be the former president and i mean. Do you seriously think that we could be looking at a feature where donald trump is behind bars. Look georgina there are many things that have happened. We could not visit for years. So i i wouldn't rule anything out at this point. I think donald trump's gonna go kicking and screaming and he as we've seen with his dispute of the election results. His attorneys will drive this out as long as possible. So trump might avoid prison but to avoid prosecution. Now i think even the donald can't get away with that scott lakers. Thanks very much

Democratic Convention: Democrats make their case for Joe Biden

"Are making their together defeat Donald Trump and elect Joe Biden and Kamala Harris as our next president and vice president. Former first lady Michelle Obama, in a taped address, offered her emotional reasons for supporting Joe Biden. If we have any hope of ending this chaos, we have got to vote for Joe Biden, like our lives depend on it. Still this Invention is unlike anyone before no big arenas that take on a rock concert vibe. I'm speaking to you from a small radio studio in Washington, not the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee, where convention organizers that once playing the host this event and that has presented bill challenges and opportunities So Ji Hinojosa, this senior advisor and the communications director for the Democratic National Committee. She joined me and Fox News radio political analyst Josh Cross Our after the curtain dropped or, more appropriately, the video conference ended on the convention's first night. So cheese. We were watching this and in listening along this evening, it seemed to me that that the strategy for this first night was trying to maybe build a big tent sort of explained to me. How this evening came together with having a virtual state shared by by somebody like Bernie Sanders, who represents certainly that more progressive wing of the Democratic Party. And former Ohio Governor John Kasich, who is not a Democrat at all. Well, absolutely. I think tonight just showed unity, which is it kicked off the first day of our convention of Uniting America. And I think that whether it was John case are Bernie Sanders or Michelle Obama. It just shows A broad coalition that we're building. Then there are also the stories of Americans all across this country. You had a a dreamer who is on the front lines of this pandemic on DH who is a first responder. You had a woman. I think this was one of the main moments of the night that everyone keeps pointing Tio Kristin from Arizona, who lost her father to Kobe. My dad was a healthy 65 year old. His Onley preexisting condition was trusting Donald Trump, and for that he paid with his life. And so that was just one of those gut wrenching moments when you realize listen, look at what this man has done to our country on DH. Yet you have leaders from all across this country, regardless of who they voted for in 2016 come together and make their voices heard. He's part of the strategy here to try and win over. Maybe those who had supported President Trump previously over to the Democratic side. Is this trying to make sure that those who supported somebody in the primary other than Joe Biden? Support him. Now is that sort of the big sort of strategy here that's underway trying to bring like everybody together. We absolutely want to reach out to everyone. That's the only way that we win. We want to make sure that those who are registered to vote that didn't turn out in 2016 turnout because they understand the stakes in the election regardless of political affiliation. We want people to know who if they voted for Donald Trump in 2016, that they can come over and vote for Joe Biden and that he will be studying leadership. We also want people to know those who are first time voters and registered to vote for the first time because they're angry. What's happening in this country? Well untenable for Joe Biden and this is making sure that if that we have the broadest coalition possible, because that is the only way that we win. But how do you govern that way? How does a John Kasich Republican and Bernie Sanders, Democrat Find their way in a governing structure. Well, what you have seen and from Joe Biden is that he can work across the aisle. He's done this to rot his entire career. And he wants to get things done. And he wants to make sure that I think that what you saw tonight were these three crises. Ray and Joe Biden wants to tackle them, and that is the pandemic. That is the economic downturn. And that is the racial inequalities that face our country right now, and what we were trying to showcase tonight is that Joe Biden Steady leadership could get us through this, and it's going to take a broad coalition to do that. And to work across party lines in order to get us out of this mess, and so you can govern this way, Frank, you have to reach out. To various parts of not only our party, but you know all Americans in order to do this, and Joe Biden will stick by his values, as he always has.

Joe Biden is the front-runner again after he shocked the world on Super Tuesday

"After last night's super Tuesday victories many people are describing vice president Joe Biden as a likely front runner in the democratic primary he was talking about a revolution we started the moment when it creates I can deliver us to mobile where we can do extraordinary extraordinary things he won ten of fourteen states former Vermont senator Bernie Sanders has won the other four states including California Biden's campaign was in a very different place at this time last week to talk about this turn around and where the former vice president goes from here we're joined by Simone Sanders a senior adviser to the Biden campaign welcome hi thanks for having me on let's start with today's news that former New York mayor Mike Bloomberg has suspended his campaign and endorsed your boss how significant do you think that is we think it really helpful and I think what this lends itself to is the fact that my father by did really well yesterday because of the energy and enthusiasm that are campaigning creating and we use the resources that we didn't have that the billions of dollars that mayor Bloomberg had with the resources that we do have a fairly well so while we didn't have offices all over all of the state we did have some we had a lot of distributed organizing happening we had circuit court of the steps up to help us out and the mallet we look forward to the next phase potentially mayor Bloomberg organization that he built depending on what you thought you could be death extremely helpful I have the two of them talked today they have spoken but I am not at liberty to say what they spoke about and that I was not there that is a risk to taking the support from a billionaire and playing into Bernie Sanders narrative that the Biden campaign is one that is supported by the wealthiest of the wealthy well look I think the reality is here is that Democrats across the country are United in one thing wanting to beat Donald Trump and did you want to do that we have to come together and so I thought if I hit on the state last night in his campaign for anyone that had been knocked down in one of the things down and out anyone that desires to get something done and so I you know look it's never worked with the bill of that coalition which I think he does then we are more than happy to have that support the reality here is all right that this race is far from over and that if anyone thought Donald Trump David union just a couple weeks ago you think they're clear I Donald Trump is going to be hard to beat but two Donald Trump has to be beaten so Democrats have to come together and do what needs to be done and we are just excited that there's there's your mentor as we're calling it bye bye for them by the same thing you say the Democrats United in wanting to defeat Donald Trump the party was not United in twenty sixteen and Bernie Sanders supporters felt very alienated by the way the process unfolded what can Biden due to try to win over members of the progressive wing of the party and avoid the split that hurt Democrats four years ago what I think my friend then Biden his campaign our campaign has always been about uniting the country restoring the soul of the nation rebuilding the backbone of the country and United America builder the tenant divide by them by launching a campaign or although I think he's been very clear that if elected president he would need to be a president for everybody and our campaign is in the campaign yes or Obama Biden Democrats led by Democrats are campaigning in pain for everyone everyone who is interested in that regard and frankly I we believe that people don't really want a revolution well people are really looking for the ball when it comes to healthcare when it comes to addressing on gun violence in our country when it comes to the economy so we think that we are well positioned to pull together a broad coalition and as you can see it's already being done you know it's like Biden success last night a lot of democratic voters have been worried about his performance as a candidate I'm some of our reporters in Iowa New Hampshire talk to voters who decided not to vote for a bite and after seeing him in person his debate performances have been uneven how do you reassure Democrats that he has the ability to perform consistently I think that I answer that question is just watch them look my president Biden had a stellar performance in the child and the baby had a stellar performance in the California debate night we look forward to the debate in Phoenix Arizona coming up in just a week little over a week or so and we believe that he will do well but he has kept up a very rigorous schedule on the campaign trail I think anyone who has seen him as of late he that he is not only shark but also a really speaking to the heart of the issue the voters are concerned about and I think that's why we're drawing in the big broad coalition right now are the four let you go you had a viral moment last night tackling tester and tweeted the broken nail what was going through your head in that moment while the split second moment ari we were and I had our big election night rally in cal one yeah and a couple protesters and I can do to take the stage our security was there and acted quickly and we're very grateful for them the number of staffers myself included I jumped in you help handle the situation and I would be happy that everyone is okay no one was hurt my dell desktop I have an eloquent because afternoon Boulevard that Simone Sanders senior adviser to the bite in campaign thanks for joining us thanks

California isn't even fully tallied yet California's still too early. To call with fifty. Four percent of the vote in and Sanders is leading here but Biden's breakout night closing. The distance with Sanders by now has five hundred thirteen total delegates according to NBC. News Bernie is at four sixty one and the next stretch of primaries includes a slew of swing states where moderate voters will again feature prominently in the last night's exit polls. We learned only a quarter of voters. Said that they were very liberal. And in most states. They viewed socialism unfavourably. Mike Bloomberg was unsuccessful in his bid. For those voters in this afternoon he gave his first public remarks after ending. That one hundred day half a billion dollar campaign and he got a little emotional our campaign for a better. America a stronger America. I'm more just America. More equal America and a more united America continues and together. We will get it done back part of the way he's going to do. That is by endorsing former vice president. Joe Biden pledging his resources toward that effort but legally Bloomberg can't give by his money outright campaign manager Kevin Cheeky said on.

"united america" Discussed on Surrounded by Idiots Radio Podcast

"The hot as the service on the Sun Desert Southwest United America this is this is radio podcast cast. This is Tony to train how are good be back with you and thanks for being back. I <hes> this show today is based on an article that I read a couple of days ago. I'm always reading articles and news feeds books and what not mostly about the stuff I talk about in current research and this article was on success and what and when we talk about success it's there's two different kinds and this is not really the big point of the show but it's important to kind the subject to kinds of success. There's the small case little s success which are those small expansions those small steps towards something that lead you in the direction. You want to go that expand you into the direction that you want to go then. There's the capital or the biggest its success in living life and making choices they get you to where you want to go to the life that you want to live so this is about success expansion this article in reading through it like I I mean I ended how thousands of articles I read about this stuff and I get up to this one line and I read it. It's like Whoa you ever have that mean Richard entire book or you read through a budget different articles in this kind okay. That's interesting. That's fun. That's I can use that for some reason or another but you come up against a line and you're like Oh yeah. This sinks in this hits me. This resonates that I get a different vibration from this particular. Particular Line it just it hits home it. It says something to me and here's the line forward movement requires intention and effort and awkwardness that is Ford Movement small steps small successes leading to the biggest success it does require that a hundred percent intention and effort which a lot of people promote out there. GotTa have the intention gotTa have the intention mechanism. You have to believe in something before you can really make it happen. You have to then you gotTa have effort. which is I promote intensely? A good third of my book is all on action and that's all I talk about if you've listened a couple shows it's all about taking small steps taking action doing something you have to do something. Nothing happens unless you do something so the intention and the effort mimics that makes perfect sense and it's pretty common sense and I'm assuming you're listening to this. If you've got this far you get that too. It's not this is not a new concept but it's the awkwardness part that I loved that they added this to this intention effort in awkwardness rudeness because any progress any success comes with failure in some form or fashion comes with a mess can't make an omelet without breaking eggs. There's is a thousand sayings out there about this but it is something that a lot of people don't understand because we tend to live linear lives. We tend to see a to be instead of looking at it kind of like everything is all over the place more of a circular pattern when we look at things linearly we conclude that something is a success. If it works out the way we want to and it's a failure if it doesn't work out the way we thought it would which keeps people from having success in their life which keeps people from that big capital as success in fulfilment and getting to where you wanna go because that's really not the way it works it takes the intention in the effort but but in the effort itself there has to be level awkwardness invasiveness in order to get things done there has been nobody in the face of the earth is who has ever succeeded without it being messy in some form or fashion without succeeding without falling down without taking different roads without. Major detours without major setbacks. That's a part of the process the little the little less successes are those little stepping things and and even the little s successes too little steps to get to that big one sometimes those involve things not working out the way you expected them to which takes you on a little bit of a different journey a lot of the struggle that we have comes from the inability to accept that awkward as part the inability to accept that the messy nece needs to be there we just can't accept it because so many people in a linear world see mess as failure and that scares the crap out of them because they don't want to get there. They don't want to show that to anybody little in themselves that they didn't get to where they thought they needed to go. Can you see how L. Limiting that is and you can see why a lot of people end up being unfulfilled immediately thought back to when I was a kid and I have no idea where that came out of left field in the brain and I remember being at the Party or some sort of a family gathering and we were grilling and we had hot dogs and hamburgers and who'd you know what kid doesn't have a hot dog right. I mean maybe maybe you don't but I'm just saying I just did we grew up on hot. Dogs and I'm sitting there. I'm and I'm grabbing hotdog off the grill and my uncle who I didn't really see a whole bunch and the guy was kind of an enigma because he really didn't say a whole lot he he always looked at you like he could read your mind kind of freaked me out a little bit but he was a nice guy. Just didn't have real tight relationship with it but he was at the gathering and he was giving me this look at when I took the hot dog and I kind of looked and said yeah and he goes you can eat that. I thought that was apparent but the fact that I took it off gorilla I was GonNa go there and throw a bunch of stuff on there. Yes let me just kind of shook his head to go. Why thinking that maybe it fell on the floor more was bad or something he goes well? I used to work at a factory that made hotdogs or he's just always said and Kinda purses lips and squinted his eyes and Kinda shook his head a little bit and then kind of walked away. I mean this is exactly how remembered and I'm thinking to myself. That's not that's not good so as I think back I know I tried a few different times to talk to him about got it but apparently it was so traumatizing him working at this hotdog plant in Los Angeles that he he never talked about it and I remember talking to my parents about it throughout the years a couple of times because I couldn't get anything out of him and they said yeah it was really bad and the stuff that they put in there and the how they put it together. It's just a disgusting messy awkward process and even that being the case even them knowing that before I even had this discussion with my uncle. We still ate hot dogs because they're damned good so I want to use the hot dog story as an example of if you know what you want out out of something if you know you WanNa make that hot dog 'cause you know how good it's going to be then. You'RE GONNA have to accept all the things that go all awkward all the messing all the disgusting testing things that go with with making the hotdog and if you've ever gone on Youtube and taking a look at how they make the hotdogs it's really gross. I mean outside of the fact that you know they're are you know killing animals cut them up they take every possible edible part of the cow or the or whatever animal that it is they used to call it scraps a lot of people refer to hotdogs his lips and astles which is not far from reality and they grind it all up and they add a bunch of stuff to it and it turns into this like pink soup in these big VATS and make these they have these casings needs to be intestine casings the little thin layers on the outside like sausages. When you snap into a sausage that's actually intestine casing and they put those things on the? extruders extraordinary things that pumps out the the the HOTDOG OOP and they form into the hot dogs and then they go through and they cook it a little bit solidify and then there you go. That's what you got. I mean it's disgusting but again the outcome is deliciousness and if you WANNA make that hot dog you WANNA have that delicious hot dog you got to put up with all that other stuff you have to understand. There's a lot of not great stuff that goes into making something great and that that's exactly what I'm trying to convey in terms of success either the small case success with the little steps those little successes and failures as you kind got a bounce your way up towards the expanding to where you WanNa go and also the big capital `success. The fact of the matter is there's no way on God's Green Earth. You'RE GONNA ever protect yourself from having crappy days or protect yourself from failing or from falling down you cannot remember it's part of the process and the thing I work with my clients on all the time is when that happens instead of immediately going to the fear failure or going to the fact feel crappy that you did or things didn't work out the way that you wanted them to take a look at that step. Take a look at that particular situation that you're facing right now if it's not great if it's not what you think it should have been and look look at it as a step in the direction that you are trying to go. It's part of the process you can't filter it out. You cannot filter out the hydrogen molecule from the water molecule. It's a part of it h two o three molecules in there so the takeaway today and what I would like you to do in terms of a call to action to you for this week is can you think of something that has happened in the very recent past that when it did happen it wasn't as you planned or you would consider it a epic failure of some sort and remember how you thought to yourself the instant emotion the instant words that were created by your brain lean in that moment. Were they great or here we go again or why did I do that or I'm such an idiot or now. What am I gonNA do type of thing now what I would like you to do real? Quick is think that exact situation again and instead of that reaction in that moment pretend that you rewind things and you can have different reaction and take that situation roll the film real on it in when it gets to the point where you you have that negative failure reaction think of it as well. I guess that's just part of the process. What happened <unk> happened and there's a reason that it happened and open yourself? You don't know the reason maybe but just open yourself up to that. That's the important thing roll the tape back when it gets to that point just think instead of taking a downturn you go all right but what's my next step so all you gotta do.

Is the US political system a duopoly doomed to fail?

"Hopefully, you know, more people will vote in the primary, and therefore you're going to get people that, you know, we're not just trying to appeal to their particular extreme the second part of the Gail porter election reform trifecta ranked choice voting. Here's how ranked choice voting works. You'll now have four candidates. That made it out of the top four primary. There's four candidates will all be listed on the general election ballot. And you come and vote for them in order of preference. So it's easy. This is my first choice. This candidates. My second choice, my third choice. This is my fourth choice. When the votes are tabulated if no candidate has received over fifty percent, then whoever came in last has dropped and votes for that candidate are then reallocated to those voters second choice and the count is run again in till one candidate reaches over fifty percent. And a what that does is it gives a candidate of need to appeal to a broader group of odors, and very importantly, it eliminates one of the hugest barriers to competition in the existing system. And that is the spoiler argument. So what happens currently is that? If there is let's say an attractive third party candidate or an independent candidate, both Democrats and Republicans will make the argument that nobody should vote for them. Because they will simply draw votes away from a democrat or draw votes away from Republican and therefore spoil the election for one of the duopoly candidates. Once you have ranked choice voting everybody can pick whoever they want as their first choice. Second choice. Third choice. No vote is wasted. And no vote spoils the election for another candidate. And then the last part of the trifecta is nonpartisan redistricting gerrymandering has to go essentially when parties control drawing the district's they can draw districts that will be more likely to tilt in favor of their party. And they can end up having a disproportionate number of quote, unquote, safe Republican seats are safe democratic seats, by the way that they draw the district's and we wanna make that that go away. In addition to election rule reforms porter. Gale would like to see changes to the rules around governing. So congress makes its own rules for how it functions and over time these rules customs and practices have been set in place to give an enormous amount of power to the party that controls that chamber, and what's happened. And this is sort of collusion in a way is when the other party takes over. They do it the same way pretty much. So we propose moving away from partisan control of the day to day legislating in congress and also, of course, in state, legislatures as well, the third leg of their reform agenda is about money in politics. But they're also led them to a different conclusion than many reformers where we differ. With so many people champion these reforms is that we don't believe that money in politics is the core issue. Ultimately, the problem is really this nature of competition that leads to this partisanship. And that's not a money issue per se. That's a structural issue. If you take money out of politics without changing the rules of the game. You'll simply make it cheaper. For those using the existing system to get the self interested results that they want without changing the incentives to actually deliver solutions for the American people. Having said that we do believe that there are benefits to increasing the power of smaller donors, and so the reforms that we have suggested are primarily focused on increasing the power of small smaller donors, for instance. Having the government itself match donations from small donors. We should know that most of the ideas Galen porter are presenting here are not all that novel. If you follow election reform, even a little bit, even we poked into a lot of them a couple of years ago in an episode called ten ideas to make politics, less rotten. I guess that's one measure of how successful and dominant. The political duopoly is that plenty of seemingly sensible people have plenty of seemingly sensible reform, ideas that for the most part gained very little traction. It is definitely challenging this is a ground game. We're not going to be able to do this in a in a year or one election cycle because the resources that the current duopoly have to deploy to play their game are substantial despite the rather depressing, or at least sobering picture that you paint of the political industry throughout the report. You express quite a bit of optimism. And I wanna know why or how because I don't see the avenue, I guess for optimism. Well, I do think we have a basic optimism. We have no sense that it will be easy to change the rules of this game. For a whole variety of reasons. But the good news is we've had some progress. We've got some nonpartisan primary states now, including California, you know, we've got ranked choice voting in. Maine. I think what seems to be building in America is a growing appetite and a growing recognition that this isn't working for our country. And I think the younger generation millennials are particularly outraged and concerned and open to, you know, all kinds of new ideas. But I think it's going to take time. The most exciting strategy in this area that we champion is a strategy put forth by the centrist project and full disclosure. I'm on the board of the centrist project. It's now actually called unite America. And this is the Senate fulcrum strategy. So here's the idea. Let's a elax five centrist problem solving oriented US Senator. Who at that? Number five would likely deny either party an outright majority in the Senate, which would make those five senators the most powerful single coalition in Washington DC able to serve as a bridge between the two parties or to align with one party or the other depending on the issue in order to move forward, very difficult policy solutions where previously there has not been the political will. So we don't need to wait to change. The actual rules of the game to deliver politician's office who can act independently of the existing political industrial complex. So
