"Everybody because we're at a critical moment. A moment made critical, she said, by Donald Trump and his supporters lies about the 2020 presidential election. But Republican Karen Barker, a third congressional district resident, also thinks the country is at a critical turning point. Bar kurst, who cast her ballot at another Wayne county early voting site last week, said she's concerned about the economy and undocumented immigrants. If we don't win this election, we don't have our country anymore. I refuse to let it be a socialist country. It's this chasm between the left and right that frustrates Kate snuggles. There's such divisiveness that we're not accomplishing anything. Snodgress and unaffiliated Wayne county voter in the third congressional district expressed little hope there's a leader out there who can bring about political reconciliation. But that didn't keep her from casting her ballot. North Carolina has a marquee U.S. Senate battle seen as a tight contest between Democrat sherry Beasley and Republican Ted Budd. It also has two races for the state Supreme Court, where Democrats are clinging to a one seat edge over Republican justices.

"The next big thing. There is quite literally all the fun of the fair on offer here at this Wayne county fair in Pennsylvania. There are pulmonary rides, roller coasters, absolutely enormous teddy bears and live goldfish to be one as prizes. I might even have to try a funnel cake later, whatever they are. Everybody here looks remarkably happy and carefree. But these are the people. These are the voters who are going to be getting a lot of attention from national politicians in the coming weeks. Pennsylvania is one of the key states that could determine whether or not Republicans can take control of Congress in the midterm elections. I don't think countries going too well. Everything's out of whack, really. If you think about it. What does that make you think you might do with your vote in the midterm elections? Gotta get the Democrats on. They had their chance and they haven't done anything. They just go backwards. No, Donald Trump's name is obviously not on the ballot in these midterm elections, but in typical fashion is still thrust themselves right into the campaign. He's handpicked in anointed a number of candidates around the country and you can see that these elections are going to be used as a real test of what Donald Trump's continuing electoral appeal is or isn't. Do you think it would be voting in November? Oh, I'm definitely voting for Trump again. Absolutely. I think this guy's got to go. His whole party's got to go. They scared a crap out of me. Anybody but Trump. Anybody that he supports, I do not. So Republicans have lost their shot at getting your vote because Donald Trump's made himself front and center here. Yes, and I'm a Republican. A Republican who vote Democrat? It's possible. Inexperienced even inept candidates that Trump has promoted are in danger of losing winnable seats for Republicans across the country. My

"So in 2022, I'll just go through a quick and then we can hash it out a little. In 2022, we already know that both the House, every house seat is up for reelection every two years. So every House seat in 2022. And the Senate, which we have a 50 50 majority, there's also, you know, a lot of seats up in the Senate, not all of them, but a good portion. And so those two things are super important on the ballot. In addition in 2022, remember the states of Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. All three of those states have their governor seat. Their attorney general and their Secretary of State are all on the ballot. So that's all stuff that we have to defend in 2022. And the reason why and the reason why the GOP is super focused on those three states, those three states are the ones that Trump won in 2016 by 70 7000 votes that gave him the election. That was the states that they hyper focused on, just turning, I think they won was caused by 10,000 votes or Michigan by 10,000 votes. But in total, all three states by 77,000. Biden won those back in 2022, but they were not as close, but they're always in play, those three states. And the one thing that scared me the most folks that don't have involved me before your show, I did a project during Trump's four years where I tracked threats to our democracy and things that were being done that were not normal. It's called the weekly list. Up on the website the weekly list dot org. But the one time I was scared after Biden had won the election that Trump was going to succeed is what happened in Michigan. He had two of the state representatives come to The White House to visit him. And while that was happening, he had lawyers in that state, contest the election in Michigan and say that there was massive voter fraud. They said that in a lot of states. But they got pretty foreign Michigan. There was one county, which is a county that's part of Detroit. That they targeted Wayne county with a very high population of black American voters. And so they targeted that, because of course, that was our whole theme that all these inner cities where we have a lot of our base living, that there was massive rhoda fraud, which none of it existed, but that was their theme that if they could turn away enough votes in Wayne county that Trump could take that seat. And it came so close, I remember watching this hearing that being ready to have a heart attack, it went to the Michigan canvas board. There were two Republicans to Democrats. So it could have gone either way. In the end, one of the Republicans who was a total trumper abstain from voting. So it was three none, but we came that close to invalidating when county and then Trump would have won Michigan. And all of the it took them weeks to certify Michigan and that would have set off a domino effect and we could have overturned the election. So that was the dry run..

"But it's the M. CRC or the MI CRC. I'm sorry about that. But look, go to Michigan, dot gov. And just write out, redistricting commission. And put it right in there a lot of people still haven't spoken up enough. Our spoken at all, you need to go in there, you need to make sure that you sign up to give your testimony, but see what maps have been drawn, you can follow them on YouTube, okay? You can put in the Michigan redistricting commission and find them on YouTube. They're showing you on YouTube, what they're doing, it's been very open. It hasn't been closeted at all. Many, many organizations have been out there trying to get the word out that people need to go and give their testimony. Okay, there is on the vote voice channel of YouTube, there was a town hall that vote voice participated in along with the western Wayne county NAACP and it gives a whole hour worth of instruction of how to give your testimony to the redistricting commission here in Michigan. There's other people that you can contact voters not politicians, the legal women voters, there's organizations in Detroit. There's all sorts of organizations and people have been getting the word out for a month. So go ahead and make sure if you haven't given your testimony. Make sure you have an input in on the maps. Make sure you know what type of maps are being drawn in your community, you know? People aren't happy in Detroit. Make sure that you know what's going on in your community. Maybe you're okay with the maps. Tell them that. They should hear the good as much as they hear that bad or the unhappy. So if you're happy with your map, say something. Okay. Make sure you get in there. So many people haven't done it. Now if you let me go back to the election if, for any reason, somebody out there isn't registered to vote. Or hasn't voted yet. You can still vote early, okay? You can go to the clerk's office, like I said earlier and go in there with your proof of identity and your proof of address and I gave you the list. Of what type of ID you needed, go on in there so that you can vote early, okay? Now I know lately a lot of people have been saying that voter registration isn't important. Oh, why are we worried about that? We need to be worried about, you know, who we're voting for him. We do. You must make a plan to vote. You must make sure that you know what's on your ballot, okay? Know what's on your ballot, make a plan to vote, okay? Know where your polling place is. Figure out what time you're gonna go, okay? Organized with your boss if you have to, how are you going to get there? You're going to ride, share? Are you going to walk? Most polling places are pretty close to where we live. Do you know where? You know what little streets to go down? Okay. Know where your clerk's office is. Just in case you need to go vote early. If you're not registered, you can still go and get registered, okay? You can still go in register and then go to the polling place on election day. It's important that we're registered being registered and understanding the dates and times and the cycles of voting is important. Because as of October 19th, here in state of Michigan, you could no longer sign up online. And if you don't have that information, you might be mistaken and think that you can still sign up online and not take the opportunity if you haven't registered and go in and register. It's important that we understand how our elections work and the importance of the tech nickel stuff. Like, what day do you go to vote? What time do you vote? Where do you vote? And the fact that if somebody knocks on your door tomorrow and says that they want to register you and they have a paper that they want to fill out or they have their tablet, they want to fill out their incorrect in this. And if you know this, you won't think that you're registered and you're not. Okay, maybe they don't know, but it's important that I need to know that you can't register a lot of people get upset when they find out that they can't register online, and they'll say, no, no, no, that can't be true, but it is true. You can't register online any longer. I can't go walk up to you, are set up a table and say, hey, common register to vote because that type of voting that one road of registering to vote is closed. You need to know that you need to go in to your clerk's office and register. If you don't know, if I don't tell you that the polls open from 7 to 8, well, you know, you may go to the polls 6 o'clock in the morning. The polls aren't open as 6 o'clock in the morning. What if you think, oh, I'm just outgoing later. I'll go and vote later, but you get there at 8, ten. If you're not in line, to vote at 8 p.m., you can not stay in line. You need to be aware of in your community, do you have to stand in long lines? If you know that it's normal for your polling place for you to have to stand in line for four hours or longer, you need to make sure that somehow you either voted early or you get to those polls early enough to have the time to stand in line. You need to know what kind of voter suppression laws are running in your state. Unfortunately, in a state of Georgia, no one can bring you water or food. So what does that mean? That means you're gonna have to lug a launch pack and what else do you need to stand in line forever? If there's no drop box in your community, then that means that you need to find out where your clerks office is. So that you can get your ballot to the clerk's office or vote early at the clerk's office. So I know that it may seem tedious. Voter engagement. I know it may seem tedious when I tell you the polls are open from 7 to 8. We need to know this, okay? I know it seems tedious when I say November 2nd is the day you vote. Not November 1st, not November 3rd. It isn't one day for Democrats and another day for Republicans. That's not how it works. Everybody votes on.

Even if it might make your team look bad or the police. Hair look bad. It's not about us. It's about justice.

"We have been at forty five consecutive days with with five hundred or fewer deaths which is outstanding in a country of three hundred and twenty nine million people. we've been at a hundred and nine consecutive days of a thousand or less current deaths. We have seen in eighty eight percent decline in daily deaths since we've reached our peak of kobe cases back on january the thirty first of this year so those trend lines are all very good. Those should be all great news. And now we're getting but now they're gonna test to final efficacious claim of the vaccines allie. Do they really prevent serious infection and death because with the rising caseload if we continue to see our death numbers remain at this stabilized level. Then we'll know in real time that they do but if we now start to see you know you typically see a lag from deaths to arise in cases right so in the next couple of weeks if we start seeing a precipitous rise in our death in our death totals on a daily basis. Then i think the last kind of remaining figleaf of the of the coded vaccine narrative which is that they prevent death and serious illness that will be tested to and i think we all obviously prayed that does not occur. But won't they just say that it has nothing to do with a vaccine has everything to do with unvaccinated people. Even though as you just said we know that apparently vaccinated people can be as dramatic and in fact other people were still hearing that the reason for the rise in cases impossibly the potential. You know rise in deaths is all because of stupid on vaccinated hicks voted for donald trump. So won't they just try to continue to push that narrative rather than saying. Oh well maybe the vaccine doesn't work as well as we thought it did. of course they will but they've also tried pushing lockdowns and mask narratives and and there's been some of us that have been able to use data to destroy their narratives here and let me just start with the politicization of this process. An i to work my way back to the data. If you're okay with it in wayne county michigan. Joe biden got almost seventy percent of their last november alley their current vaccination rate in wayne county michigan is barely above fifty percent the vaccination rate in wayne county michigan is is lagging about twenty points behind. Joe biden's vote total so the idea that this is just a bunch of make america. Great troglodyte s- who barely made it out of community college and don't follow the science That they're the only ones that are resistant to this is just. There's just no data to support that. That's just simply not true And so i think that you're seeing in fact trafalgar group who combined the most accurate in the last two presidential elections. They just did a poll on vaccination mandates they found they are that seventy one percent of americans oppose the vaccination mandates including almost sixty percent of democrats. What's fascinating about that is in recent memory. The most unpopular public policy was the tarp bailouts that spawned the tea party in two thousand eight when the government When we had the credit markets were couldn't remain liquid and had to be bailed out that was actually only a disapproved. By only i say sixty seven percent of americans which would mean fm vaccine. Mandates would be the most single most unpopular piece of legislation in recent american history. And i would argue. We are even more polarized politically alley than we were in two thousand eight..

"We just had with michael knowles. I think this a little bit. I talking about what was mentioned at the end. A serious view of politics. I think a serious view of politics means recognizing what we are truly up against guys about twenty five thirty thirty five years ago before i was even born guys like bill maher were saying most of the same things for the most part that they're saying now now guys like and they were the worst of us. They were the worst of society. If you are a conservative now they're like on our side saying the same stuff part of having a serious view of politics is recognizing what we're up against we cannot stare into the leviathan wherever that is the spirit of the age. And just say of that. Spirit of the age just disagree. No you don't disagree you you don't disagree. A nail doesn't disagree with a hammer. A serious view of politics means really understanding what we're up against and what it will take to excise that cancer from the body because before you can actually put forth and and seriously put forth at actionable positive view of governance and society. You have to get rid of the cancerous tumor that actually brought you. Were the place where you where you have to return to that society. So i think. That's i think that's part and parcel to what we talked about with the mike lee at the beginning of the show. I want to go back. That's very well said by.

But this focus of this program is always high school sports and John Herrick from I s e Sports Network and one of our flagship stations at Emma's Communications, Wi BC is Joining His job was on the call for girls basketball tonight. What game did you have? And how did it go, John? Well, I was actually pretty busy today, Kevin. I actually had three games. The first game was definitely the most exciting. It was the Homestead Spartans against Lawrence North Wildcats, and the game went into overtime, but the play of the game for sure, though, Woz jailer Smith Who became Lawrence North all time leading scorer by knocking down the game time three to send the game into overtime tied at 45. And then it looked like you know, from that point on that Lawrence North might be able to pull away and over time, but Homestead was able to hold them off and over time and win the game. 54 50, So it was just a really, really great game all the way around. I Ana Patterson for Homestead ended up outscoring jailer by just a little bit. That was the key matchup coming in. Who would be the better player today? Would it be I Ana Patterson for Homestead or Jailer Smith for Lawrence North, and even though jailer hit the big three to tie it Hi. Ana Patterson had just two more points than her with 23 Homestead gets their 10th win of the season. Tol win that crazy came in overtime, and then I we did a rental ear Central against Lafayette, Central Catholic Doubleheader. Lafayette, Central Catholic one, The girls match up 74 to 40 and Lafayette. Central Catholic Boys were dominant as well. Beating rental their central 52 to 30. So it was definitely a full day for us on the Iast e sports network. You're better man than I I think. Well, I don't remember doing I'm sure I've done three today before, but now I get to a certain stage, right? Think one or two is plenty and that'll be enough for me. John Harris from I s C Sports network in WBC is well, good to talk with you, John. Thank you. Alright, take blah, Kevin. We'll keep an eye on what's going on in the NFL Tonight is well early fourth quarter Tampa Bay 21 Washington 16. That's maybe a little bit surprising. What? It's Tom Brady versus Taylor. Hi, Dicky. Way. Think was working in an accounting firm about three weeks ago before he joined the Washington football team practice squad. So here's one of the things I'm wondering about this particular weekend. Aziz fans. How are we gonna feel about and more importantly to the NFL? How will we consume six games over two days? An extra game each day, and it's tough to actually we'll have any kind of a life. If you're gonna watch everything and, you know, let's face it. There's there's not a lot of product. We wanna lap it up as much as we can. So most of us Like to see virtually every minute of every playoff game. Ah, lot of us try to watch every window. You know, we're watching the one o'clock the four o'clock the Sunday Night game the Monday night in Thursday with maybe some exceptions, but certainly playoffs more likely, but Can you really devote So that's basically what 11 12. That's nuts. It's about 11 hours. Two days in a row 22 hours. Can you do that? In a weekend? The NFL's king. There are ratings juggernaut. Maybe the game part ratings might go down just a little bit, especially The late game of it's not particular. Good, but they're lucky so far. They've got a close game tonight. But the total audience that you're breaking in is gonna be bigger. So expect the NFL to keep moving towards this situation. I think the excused issuers. We added in one more playoff team per conference, because, well, we're not sure how things were gonna go with Colbert. There's always the chance that you have toe cancel a game and we might have an uneven number of games. So we wanna maybe make it a little more open for people. Really. What it's going to come down to is there is Straight cash available there, so they're not going back and they're going to continue down this path. I think as we move forward, so we'll see. Well, we'll continue to keep abreast of those games. Just a zinnia gonna join us here coming up and just a little bit. Talk more about what's happening with the Colts will spend some more time. On the Pacers from for the cold. The questions are what is next? Now Moving into the offseason After today's playoff loss in Buffalo? It's Indiana sports talk You.

They do continual security assessments and and it's set up. I mean, the fact that he got in there like that that easy. It's just unbelievable.

So, uh And I'm I'm sure they no one ever expected this on plants of this, But believe me, all the systems will be looked at and the way they deal with This will be re evaluated.

A Covid-19 vaccine won't be a magic bullet

"Facing an election laws. Donald trump turns to raw political power to try to bend. The outcome by brian bennett. This article is part of the debrief times politics newsletter during his failed campaign to win another four years in office president. Donald trump repeatedly used the power of his office to boost his chances in employing. The white house has a campaign backdrop. Having his secretary of state give a campaign speech during an official diplomatic trip and spreading baseless claims about voting fraud. From behind the presidential seal. Now he's using his office to try to reverse his loss. Trump invited a delegation of michigan republican lawmakers to meet with him at the white house on friday as that state is on the verge of formerly certifying. That president-elect joe biden won more votes judges have tossed out. Trump's claims of widespread voter fraud in michigan and other states so now trump appears to be trying to use raw political power and influence in a hail mary attempt to convince sitting state lawmakers to disenfranchise millions of michigan voters. The white house meeting follows tuesday night. Phone call trump reportedly made to a republican member of the board of canvassers in michigan's wayne county which includes detroit after. The board voted to certify. The vote tally hanging over. Friday's meetings is more than the power of the office. Trump is also building a new fundraising juggernaut. As he fights the election results trump's massive campaign fundraising list is sending appeals to donors nominally to help his legal defense but a large portion of the funds is going to a new political action committee called save america that trump can use to steer donations to the campaigns of politicians. He favors after repeated failures to show widespread election fraud in court. Trump's legal team has acknowledged that its current strategy is to delay certification of votes in key states in order to open the door for gop held state legislatures to intervene and send a raft of pro-trump delegates to the electoral college on december fourteen rather than delegates who represent how people voted. That strategy is exceptionally unlikely to work and would mean reversing. The intention of millions of voters people close to trump believe. He's putting up a robust fight as a way to energize his supporters. So they'll come with him as television viewers after he leaves office and bolster his political sway as a kingmaker in the republican party. But he's already doing a lot of damage to the democratic process. Along the way and seeding unfounded distrust in the election results among core parts of his base that could persist for years. Trump added to that damage on tuesday when he fired his top cybersecurity official responsible for securing the election. Chris crabs who had said his team of federal government. Experts had not seen any signs of electronic votes being changed when president. Teddy roosevelt called the presidency. A bully pulpit. He meant it was a powerful perch to advocate for policy agenda but trump has taken the muscular use of office in a different direction using it to literally bully fellow republicans into backing his personal political ambitions and go along with his false claims that the election was stolen from him. A broad and unproven conspiracy. That has been widely debunked and repeatedly rejected in court. He simply trying to steal it through. The levers of power says heather cox. Richardson a historian at boston college. This is unprecedented and not since eighteen. Seventy six has a candidate so flagrantly used political power to try to change the outcome of a vote after election day that was during reconstruction when republicans grabbed the presidency for ohio governor. Rutherford hayes with brute political force by pressing congress to steer the result in hayes his favor. But there's still one key difference between now and then in eighteen seventy six the vote margins were legitimately unclear whereas in twenty twenty biden has clear winning margins in the states. Trump is disputing since then states have voted in reforms to the electoral college system designed to prevent a politician from exerting personal influence over the democratic process as the country watch is trump is testing those reforms to ensure the will of the voters is honored.

Republicans denounce Trump's attempts to pressure Michigan officials

"Look. Your state is in the middle of this election controversy and as we speak the president has invited to of your republican leaders in the michigan legislature to the white house. He apparently the president does not want to accept the results of the election in michigan and appears to want the legislature to step in and award the electors to donald trump. Your reaction to that. Yeah well the the concept of the president asking someone to that is extremely troubling. I mean that's offering what the the democracy in my view and that's a terrible thing With respect to asking the legislative leaders to come meet with him at this point i wouldn't be critical of the legislative leaders. I mean step back and look at it and many people have strong feelings when they first hear this. But if the president of the united states calls you up and says he wants to meet with you. It's pretty hard to say you're not gonna go meet with him. It's really their actions. Coming out of a mess. How should be defined again. They both gone on the record to say that they didn't see any reason. There would be any change from the normal process. Taking place in michigan. They're both on the record for that. I would hope they would reiterate that to the president to say you know. That's the way it works in michigan and there's nothing to talk about if he asks for something inappropriate. Do you see any chance of fraud or improper handling of the ballots. That would in any way a raise questions about the results of the election in michigan. Now i have now. And i don't know anyone who has if you look at it all Eighty-three counties in michigan. Now certified by one by a fairly large margin actually. Republicans did well in michigan other than the presidential race. So if you look at it there's no indications in fact i believe some of the results even in wayne county or the detroit area which is the area that many people are talking about. Actually they have better results in terms of having their precincts match up on their numbers than they had four years ago. So if anything. i think. This is a good solid election. Taking place in michigan and i would expect the board of canvassers on monday to vote to certify the results. That's what they should do. So that's the state board of canvassers. And i wanna get to that in a second but we did have this episode this week. Where the two republican members of the canvassing board for wayne county which includes detroit. I said they would not vote to certify the election. Then they did then. They said they came under pressure and tried to recant it. Then there's also the suggestion that donald trump may have talked to at least one of them and possibly put pressure on them to say that they would not vote to certify. What do you make of all of that. The got certified. I think that's the important illegal point. What's trolling through. All this is the president's behavior and the people on his legal team in history. I mean there are actually undermining democracy with their actions again. If you have a ballot issue you should go to court. You prevent san evidence and you'll out of court decide all this other stuff is very damaging today actually. I'm concerned about the damage. That's going to go on for the next several years in terms of misinformation you know creating doubts in the minds of his supporters. Things like that. That's what's really troubling about. This is. I expect the process to work. I expect president-elect biden to become the next president through a legal process that were today If you look at it there hadn't been according the country to my knowledge that has found any merit any of the claims made. Let's get this thing over with but there's a lot of damage. President trump has done terrible things. I mean this man has the divider in chief in our nation and it's an awful outcome in terms of his behavior. We should point out that even though you're a two term republican governor of your state you actually endorse joe biden in this election. Why did you do that well as easy. I'm an american. I and it's in the best interest of america to have someone who's going to try to heal our country. Donald trump has been the divider and chief. The incivility in our country has reached a record level. I didn't think it could get worse. Actually post-election is showing can go even lower with this current behavior. This is awful and we need somebody to bring us back together. And joe biden. I believe can do that for the people that said they voted for trump even on a policy basis. I'm a nerd. I'm proud nerds dime into policy. Might make allergies. Were particularly that good. He had a few reasonable things that he did that. Were good but beyond that. Many of us steps really weren't that thoughtful nor good And so i think it's time for new leadership in our country. So not only did. I not want to vote for trump by found good reasons to vote for biden up and i'm glad to see that he won michigan. So you've targeted all of your criticism in this interview at donald trump. But what about the rest of your party. I assume you're you're still a republican. I'm still republican. Although a lot of republicans like the have other commentary on me. Yeah yeah let me give you an example. We have a reporter. Who works for us at yahoo news jon ward over the last week i think four times. He has emailed the comms. Directors of every republican senator. That's fifty three senators and only two of them got back and said yes and acknowledged that there was not significant fraud in this election. And we're willing to criticize a donald trump for how he handled this transition and his efforts to subvert the apparently subvert the election just two out of fifty three. What do you make of that. What do you make of of people in your party. Who have not been willing to do. What you're doing on this podcast right now and i wish there were more i really do and i would have expected more but as a practice marijuana also be conscious because these are good people. These many of these people have been public servants for years and to be blonde. Donald trump is a bully. I mean i've been on the record for that. I was as i'm a nerd. That was bullied a kid. So i understand bullying and if you're in a position like they are in many cases you have an issue with a bully out there and you're going to be pretty cautious about what you say because you don't want to be the next person that's a target of a bully. S my point. That's why i was happy to part president-elect biden was get this guy out of office and yeah backward. people actually respect one another and treat people with civility. Tell us about your own relationship with trump. because he's he's gone after you clearly and but you overlap with them while you were governor right so you must imagine. You guys must've talked. Was it like yeah. We never have had what i would describe as a real positive relationship because again if you look at that context i believe in being a positive person so even these comments are hard for me to get because i don't like being negative on anyone. I like to spend my time looking for the good in people but in his case he i would make an exception the way i viewed at many cases is he didn't understand a lot of the issues. That were going on in michigan. So i just sort of did my own thing and i didn't worry about if he was taking credit for it for example he to talk about michigan's great comeback. All that's fine. We did make michigan comeback in. We had it going. The comeback well underway before he ever became president. And if you wanna to take credit that's fine. I try to work with them. Because we're fellow public servants. He was at the federal level as at the state level. So i didn't go out of my way to generate conflict. Because if i could help michigan by getting them on board to do something for michigan that would be good

Michigan Secretary Of State On Challenges Certifying Election Results In Her State

"A little known board of county officials in Michigan made bigger headlines than Congress this week. That's because for a moment, the two Republicans on the Wayne County Board of Canvassers seemed to hold the fate. Of Michigan's presidential election results in their hands. And now, as Republican lawmakers from Michigan visit the White House and President Trump's attempts to overthrow the legitimate results of the election dragon, the Trump campaign's focus appears trained on Michigan, which is why we wanted to invite Michigan's Democratic secretary of state on to the program. Jocelyn Benson is in charge of the election in Michigan. Welcome. Good evening. Thanks for having me you have had quite a week. Let's let's start with this business in Wayne County, which is home to Detroit, of course to officials saying they would not certify. Then they said they would not. They want to take it back. Where does this stand? Well, First, it's clear that the voters of Wayne County in Michigan have spoken. They've made a choice. There's no legal or factual basis to question that choice. And the Wayne County Board of Canvassers did in an open meeting as an official process, making official vote to can approve the and certify the results of the election in Wayne County justice every county in the state has done on campus is required by law to certify results. That's what they've done, and now we expect the border state canisters to do the same. Okay, so that that vote that stands, Yes, votes. And when you're an official state board what's after you've taken and you know in a meeting that complies with the Open meetings act, and that's what occurred here. Well, let me move you two today and this meeting at the White House. The White House is characterizing these visiting Michigan lawmakers that this is a routine meeting. That's what White House spokesperson Kayleigh Mcenany saying. Is it routine for the president of the United States to call Michigan state officials and invite them to a private meeting at the White House? No, I don't know if it's ever happened before. Certainly not at a time like this, where there's so much focus on Michigan as you mentioned, But it's important to note that both the speaker and the Senate majority leader have stated they would not obstruct the will of the voters, which they've confirmed has been quite clear, and we have no reason to doubt that yet and I'm going to continue to expect they'll Follow the law as it's very clearly laid out in our state Constitution and state statutes. What should occur at this point? And do you have any Intel on the agenda for the meeting? How it's going on? Not at all? No, I really stay out of that process on the state's chief election officer. My job is to just make sure that the The will of the voters is what rules the day. Well, may I ask that the broad path that President Trump and his lawyers appear to be charting involves convincing Michigan State Board of Canvassers not to certify the Biden victory in Michigan. And then convincing state lawmakers to appoint electors who would overturn the will of Michigan voters. Is that a correct summary and if so, would that be legal? But know that it is potentially a path that I imagine people may imagine in their heads stick but there, But there's not something there's nothing in the law that or nothing, actually, that's occurred yet that would indicate that anyone is going down that path, and that's what I think it's important to focus on. Indeed, every one of Michigan's 83 counties have certified the election, Republican and Democratic clerks have confirmed That there's no evidence of widespread irregularities, and the board has previously started fight elections when there were more clerical mistakes and narrower margins of victory. Then there is this time around, and so it really being agreed this departure from their legal responsibility and requirements for them to do anything other than certified the election on Monday, and May I ask you Have you personally seen any evidence is the person in charge of the election message? Men? Michigan have you seen any evidence of widespread fraud of wrongdoing of rigging the vote? No, not at all. And not only that This has been one of the more scrutinized elections in modern history for our state. So if there was anything to discover or find, we certainly would have found it at this point, So there is no reason that you can point to that Biden winning Michigan by more than 150,000 votes that that would not stand. No, not at all and his. I started out by saying that it's actually it's very clear that the voters have spoken. It's very clear that there is no legal or factual basis to question that choice.

Giuliani peddles election conspiracy theories and falsehoods.

"Georgia audit now. Complete the hand count of nearly five million votes reaffirming biden the winner. The first democratic presidential candidate to win the state in nearly thirty years. There was news today about michigan as well where the president lost by about one hundred and forty eight thousand votes. we've now learned. The president has called hit called republican officials in wayne county home to detroit and michigan an eleventh-hour attempt to invalidate votes president trump calling on state. Republicans sleep tonight on your side. History will be on your side. You're conscious side and more knows when you go to meet your maker. Your soul is going to be very very war that along with legal challenges playing out in several states and a public campaign. Alleging voter fraud without evidence here to break it down for us. Chief white house correspondent. Jonathan karl jonathan. It is hard to know where to begin with all of the legal challenges that seem to spin each day. Let's backtrack just a little bit in michigan. With the on again off again certification of votes by canvassers in wayne county and the president reaching out to state leaders. Where does all the stand well You know the the these two republican members of the canvassing board had. I said that they were not going to certify the election and they said they agreed to certify it and then we we learned that the president called them directly. You imagine that you are a local local official on a canvassing board In wayne county michigan and your phone rings and it's donald trump the president of the united states. So it's quite a bit of you know it's quite a bit of leverage with president has and he talked to them but the bottom line is they have certified. It's hard to see out. There are no kind of take back. So we accept the wayne county certification just as we accepted every one of our eighty three counties certification as it was properly made in public vote in public meeting And now moving forward and calling on the board of state canvassers to do the same now. The president is also going to be reaching out in meeting with the republican leaders of the state legislature in In michigan Bringing them to the white house for a meeting and this as his legal team is suggesting that maybe the direction they want to go is to go directly to state legislatures to essentially overrule. How their states voted And to send their own electors to the electoral college. American democracy cracked last night. But it didn't break michelle. I gotta say it's it's a it's a crazy idea. It's basically it's talk of nullifying in election. And i and i should point out that even though these republican leaders From michigan or to meet with the president They have both been on record saying that. That is not the way. It works in michigan state. Legislature doesn't simply you know. Look the other way and not do something on its own in the face of what happened On election day but yet here we are and in terms of all of this is any of its seen as any type of interference. We've got a president a sitting president as well as a candidate in an election. Making phone calls as well as meeting with people that are involved directly with the election. Well there's a lot of strange activity is ranging a lot of questions and we also had a One of i think probably the most bizarre press conference. I've ever seen tied to a president. Good afternoon and thank you. Very much for coming guiliani. And the president's legal team held a press conference at the republican national committee headquarters in washington that you know. Frankly i i. I really don't know how to describe it as the except to say it was unhinged and what emerged very quickly is because it's not a singular voter fraud in one state. This pattern repeats itself in a number. Isn't there was vast conspiracy talk. President trump won by a landslide. We are going to prove it and there was a conspiracy that included a the clinton foundation. That could have been mickey mouse. That could have been a dead person even a mention of hugo chavez who died i don't know i think about seven years ago. These people were further away than my cousin. Vinny was from witnessed. They couldn't see a thing. It would vary very strange. Strange press conference the real thing you need to know though. Is that the legal cases that have been brought by the by. The trump team are going nowhere. They have lost over and over again and they've been forced to withdraw lawsuits while there quickly running out of time on this and so with where we're at with this giuliani and his briefing in the president. Set to meet with people today from those canvassers in that area where republicans at what's the endgame. Republicans for the most part are saying that the president should be allowed to pursue his legal challenges. A as far as they may go to be proof but they're also not for the most part repeating these crazy allegations and privately. They're saying that they know the president's laws have you seen that. I haven't seen proof yet. How many lives do you think are at risk here if this transition remained stalled. Well look. We've you've heard the projections projections. Are that if nothing fundamentally changes between now and beginning february we're like to lose up to four hundred total of four hundred thousand lives and other one hundred fifty thousand lives but of course we're in the middle of the national health crisis we're in the middle of a pandemic and the world doesn't stop. Stir president-elect what do you think the president is doing. What are americans witnessing here. We choose my words think. They're witnessing an incredible irresponsibility credibly damaging messages being sent to the rest of the world about how democracy functions. And i think it is and because of the president's refusal to acknowledge What happened in the election. Well i don't know his motive. But i just think it's totally irresponsible. The team of president elect now biden is not getting the briefings. They're not coordinating with the warp speed team on the vaccine. All all the things that are going to have to be carried out by the biden administration They've been stonewalled by by the president's refusal to accept the election

Giuliani makes accusations of fraud that the Trump team has failed to support in court

"Well. Donald trump continues to refuse concession in the presidential election rudy. Giuliani is still bungling attempt at legally overturning. The election results now. They've brought their cases to court every time they've done so have basically noticed that there's no evidence and the cases get thrown out as a result on thursday meeting today. The trump campaign did drop the lawsuit seeking to block michigan's results assigned. Perhaps that they believe most they're most likely path to success is a political one persuading the states elected republicans to award trump a state. He lost now time. Also reports a similar theme when it comes to rudy giuliani. Who had an unhinged crazy press conference this morning. Trump's lawyers don't have to win in court they only have to wreak enough havoc in the legal system and so enough doubt among the american public. That state boards slow their process of certifying the election results thus potentially politicizing the process by which states confirm the electoral winner and so one of the other examples of the chaos. They're trying to so in. This electoral process is the wayne. County board of canvassers have already voted unanimously to certify the election results which indicate the joe biden won their county but at the same time we're hearing from trump's legal team including gina ellis. Who's the legal adviser for the trump campaign Saying things like this. She actually tweeted this breaking this evening. The county board of canvassers in wayne county michigan refuse to certify the election results. That's a lie. They did certify the election results. If the state board follow suit the republican state legislator will select the electors huge win for donald trump. I mean they're. They're trying to steal the election in plain sight. There is no question about it and during rudy giuliani's press conference today. He aired all sorts of grievances. regarding so-called widespread election fraud refused to provide evidence even though he claimed that he had the evidence and proceeded to say things that have already been debunked in court. And i'll go through a little bit of that in just a minute jank. Why don't you jump in so you have to understand. This is not conjecture and this is not our perspective. When donald trump drops a lawsuit the actual case in michigan that means he has no evidence that could overturn the results so when he goes the certification process and representatives to just hand them. The electors is set of biden. He's basically saying we know we lost this election. There's no earthly way. We could prove it in court because we don't have any evidence so let's just steal it we're allowed to steal it if you just name different electors. Would that end democracy. Yeah but who cares. We'd we'd remain in charge so dropping a lawsuit and going to electors is by definition admitting we lost but we'd like to steal it nonetheless so that's the kind of outrage that we're in right now. Meanwhile raju secretive sydney ballet. Cover this before She says we have a fire. Hose of secret evidence. Okay but the good news for rudy. You went to court. Court is way you present the secret of it is. You can't go to court and say your honor. We should definitely rule in our favor. But we're going to have to keep all of our evidence secret. It's not really how it works. And when he went to court he got clowned absolute

"Is just getting old and it's getting more and more dangerous by the day and that's letting trump had this fantasy of saying that he still won the election. Somehow the first example here is a story. I talked about yesterday. The two republican election canvassing board members in wayne county michigan and. They're now trying to take back their votes to approve the certification so initially they voted no than yes and now. They're trying to say no again. They got a call from trump. On tuesday night after the meeting thanking them for their support and lo and behold on wednesday they suddenly wanted to take back their approval their reasoning. They were bullied. I'm not joking quote after the vote. The public comment period began in dozens of people. Made personal remarks against me and mr hartman. The comments made accusations of racism and threatened me and members of my family. The public comment continued for over two hours. And i felt pressured to continue the meeting without a break and quote. Here's the translation I'm a racist and people realize the truth and called me a racist and now i'm sad also.

Trump fires nation's top election security official who disputed fraud claims

"A town were. Disagreement is par for the course. Today there was one thing that almost all of washington could agree on namely that the government's top election security cyber cyber security official. Chris crabs did a great job protecting our democracy and did not deserve to be fired. Chris crabs was dismissed last night via presidential tweet after he repeatedly pushed back on trump's claims of election fraud and after his agency refused white house. Requests to edit or remove informational accurate content which was pushing back against trump's false election claims most notably krebs cybersecurity and infrastructure. Security agency cisa. It's a unit within the department of homeland security last week called the november third election quote the most secure in american history adding that there is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes changed votes or was in any way compromised and quote democrats today reacted to krebs firing with predictable outrage but notably they were joined by many republicans including some of the president's most ardent defenders in congress to presents variety to the confusion entails. I'm sure i'm not the only one that we'd like. Return to more of a lot on what's normally of course. Well chris krebs is rightfully earning plaudits in an enhanced reputation for a job. Well done and for standing up to this president. This lack of normalcy is likely to continue for the remaining nine weeks left to go in this administration. We all need a way to get through it. So i'm happy to give you one. I'm happy say the joining us now to discuss this story and others is someone who obviously needs no introduction on this show or anywhere else the inestimable. Rachel meadow rachel. It is so great to see you here. I'm going to ask you the first question on behalf of all of your viewers how are you. I am great valley and let me just start by saying how thankful i am to you for doing for stepping in for me on zero notice and doing this at length. You've just been fantastic and my staff loves working with you and you just. I've been watching every night and you guys are doing an amazing job and so i am grateful to you for making it possible for me to be important which is Which has been a trip. But i'm i'm fine. I have continued to test negative through this whole thing. Which means that. I'm getting close to the end of my quarantine period. I will hopefully think potentially be back hosting either tomorrow night or the night after in which case i will have more to say about where i been in what i've been doing and what it's been like. I definitely have some stuff to say about that. And i want to let people know what's been going on but bottom line is i'm grateful to you and i'm finding i will be back in something that looks like your chair pretty said well you come in the time that is needed for you to come and as i remind our viewers all the time This continues to be your staff who put the show together and it has your dna and it's so we're we're glad for that. I want to ask you about this topic. We were just talking about chris. Crabs a man who was responsible for trying to keep at least outside interference and cyber interference out of our election. He told people last week he thought he was going to get fired and then last night in typical fashion. He got fired by tweet for doing his job. The president directly contradicted him saying he was wrong about what he said. This election was not safe. Votes were changed votes that were cast for trump became biden votes and chris. Krebs is now no longer there. What do you make of this. I a couple of things i mean. In terms of krebs himself. I feel like it's worth reflecting. On the fact that i don't know that there is anybody else who has served particularly at a high level in the trump administration who has come out of it not just with an enhanced reputation for having done a job very well and done right by the country and taking something. That was very very difficult. That other people have had a really hard time with and sort of nailing it doing it well but also leaving not just with his badge of honor of being fired by the president for having done his job well leaving without having compromised himself without having bit his tongue without having kowtowed to the president or compromised himself in any way that was trying to either stave off himself being fired or trying not to rock the boat or trying to go along to get along. Which so many good people have fallen prey to because that's the way the president manipulates people gets what he wants and so i think chris crabs is being lauded justifiably by people on all sides of the ideological spectrum and all levels of government for having done a really good job but he also really in some ways stands alone in terms of having done well and done right and not having bent himself to the vagaries of this president. I think that's really important. I will also say the alley. That i think there's an institutional thing to watch out for. Because part of the reason we started talking about crabs potentially being fired last week was when a divisional chief at cisa got fired. Then krebs himself got fired. His deputy also got fired. What's happened is this agency has been decapitated and that has a couple of risks. One is that this is a dozen just work on election security. They are responsible for example for protecting vaccine. Researchers from what appears to be a robust international malign effort to interfere with and steal vaccine data by actors like potentially north korea iran russia That's really important. We reported in recent weeks on hospitals being hit with ransomware attacks russian-speaking gangs from the former soviet union hitting us hospitals in the middle of this pandemic with ransomware attacks and locking their computer systems. That's also with instances remain. We need an agency. That's good at that stuff but also in terms of the election. i mean the there are still being counted. There are recounts happening. there are certification. Tallies that are coming up and people including senators on the intelligence committee have warned that this is one of the times when we are quite vulnerable to disinformation and potentially foreign interference. Somebody might target the understanding of the american people to try to confuse us an upset us and muddied the result of the election now as it is being finalized and finally tabulated and so two houses a plan so well not just to have him ousted but to have all the whole upper echelons of the agency taken out for these reasons at this time is very dangerous for lots of different reasons. And i'm i'm very very uncomfortable with not just what this means for but what the implications are for our national security one of the reasons i would like you back is because rather than doing it myself. I'd like to hear your narration of this legal clown car. That is driving around the united states stopping michigan last night with the board of canvassers in wayne. County not agreeing to certify detroit's election results than fifteen million three hours later after getting pressure decided to do so. Rudy giuliani walking into a court. Case after twenty eight years Walk into a courtroom in philadelphia not really understanding the law very well. Republicans putting pressure on the secretary of state of georgia. It is a bit of a clown car but they are doing stuff to stop this election from being certified and to stop the administration from taking the reins and getting their transition moving. Yeah that's right. And i think you had really interesting conversation. Stacey abrams about this earlier in the hour alley. And i. I think that one thing. That's that's interesting that we can see at work is what you were talking about with her about the secretary of state and georgia the republican secretary of state who's absolutely been involved in contentious voting rights disputes with voting rights advocates like abrahams with democrats in georgia but his emerging here as a sort of normal republican and not a trump republican in the sense that he's not exactly a champion of voting rights in georgia georgia's had all these troubles but he's also not willing to go along with the insanity of the trump republican claims that the georgia election should be thrown out because of some magic dust that they've imagined they can cast over those election results so i do think that this is accelerating in some small ways with republican elections officials whether it's local commissioners in pennsylvania or the secretary of state in georgia or other people who are just sort of you know regular elected officials who are responsible for election integrity finding themselves affronted by the president and his legal team are trying to do in a way that i think maybe is giving us a little bit of a peak had a post trump republican party or at least where the schism might be between trump and and republicanism as we move forward.
