On, that day nineteen, thirty, two, five, hundred, US army infantrymen loaded rifles, fixed bayonets, gas grenades containing of vomited ingredient two, hundred cavalry, a machine gun squadron eight, hundred police and six M One, nine, thousand, nine, hundred seventeen army tanks prepared to attack seventeen hundred unarmed men plus thousands of their wives and children moments before the Assault General Douglas Smith Garth in charge of the operation turned. To police officers standing next to him and said, I will break the back of the enemy. The attack was ordered by President Herbert Hoover and commanded by General Macarthur Dwight D Eisenhower was MacArthur's aide and Major. General George. S, Patton led the tank unit after donning gas masks the tossed hundreds of tear-gas grenades into the encampment which started raging fires and the assault drove all but the. Occupants of the area in Kampman was then burned to the ground. This wasn't Cuba the Philippines or the Mexican border. But in Washington DC The camp nicknamed Hoover Ville occupied by World War One veterans who were living in tents and shanties across the country and they're also in their encampment in DC with crumbling buildings all around them along Pennsylvania Avenue near the capital if your education was anything like mine, there wasn't any mention of this event. In history class four, million vets had returned from the war. This is World War One was the war to end all wars and found that others had taken their jobs that are considerably higher wage than though one dollar per day soldiers pay an expected more help from the government in nineteen twenty four Congress promised World War One veterans a bonus payment. I'll dollar twenty five for each day of overseas service and a dollar for every day of. Home Service there would be a limit of six hundred, twenty five dollars for overseas service and five hundred for Home Service but the catch twenty two was that it could not be redeemed until nineteen forty five cash quickly dubbed at the tombstone bonus because many of them would be dead before collecting with the Great Depression deepening demands for making an immediate payment we're escalating finally bill was passed, but President Hoover vetoed it in response some three hundred. Veterans led by Ex Sergeant Walter waters boarded a freight train in Portland Oregon in early May nineteen, thirty, two and headed. For Washington DC. Soon, others began their pilgrimage the cat to the capital from across the country and dilapidated buses overcrowded pickup trucks by walking hitch-hiking the vets and their families were in desperate financial shape with overdue bills to pay hunger affections hanging over their heads.

What were expecting in the PS5 showcase

"So Sony Holding this PS five showcase on Wednesday a week after Microsoft held its own xbox event. So Oscar, what are you expecting? Are we finally going to get a price that is de definite? Expectation with this show, there is obviously the big questions. When's it coming out and the price? So yeah. Those are the two. Obviously there's GonNa be some info about the launch games but yes, with this presentation, this is going reveal all it's gonna lay everything down and skin say here's what it is and get ready. So what are you expecting pricewise? Right now, the expectation is the. to a, there's a digital version of the PS five with no OPCO drive and the sort of standard version with the optical drives so. For the standard version, which should have all the bills whistle. So to speak that were pretty much were all expecting a five hundred dollar price points for the digital version were looking more like four hundred the really the only difference between the two the optical drives so far that we know unless soda comes out and make some other changes. But consider there's not much difference. We don't expect with go below the three ninety, nine 'cause w really big cut. into the into some profits, got it, and so let's let's stack this up against Microsoft which announced its own pricing last week. What are the xbox series X. and series s cost? Well, that was a big surprise last week it was a it was leaked initially than my Marquesa finally confirmed that yes, there is GonNa be to xboxes the S previously codename De la Carte is to ninety nine. That was the big reveal edit is a very big reveal. The KONTOS haven't been to ninety nine in quite a few generations and for Gen Gaming. It's Really a low price and every the ideal the strategy behind it is what we're thinking. Yourself said, Hey, not going to undercut us again like they did with the playstation forward. So we're just GONNA go right in with this three hundred dollar council. It's going to have next Gen graphics but does have an optical drive. has half the hard drive space and a can't perform get render as good. A graphics as the standard version would just five hundred dollars. So that is what? Microsoft with the big enough to saying, Hey, we got you covered if you need save money or if you want all the bells and whistles, you go for the five hundred dollars and they're both coming out November. Right and that that money equation I mean it's more important ever right now, right we were in the middle pandemic when the middle of a recession with millions of people are jobs money is tight. All around is a lot of uncertainty. So I get I appreciate that Microsoft would factor that into the equation with the pricing that said You know there, there are some drawbacks of the series s I'm curious with with some of those pricing in place and I know we don't yet have Sony yet confirmed but. The equation for you on which console you should buy or if you should buy any of these consoles this holiday season. It always comes down to the Games. That's really what is important. But What's interesting is Marcus Like I said in the previous previous podcast. They are shooting to be this all encompassing services service package so They want to the big. You're GONNA push when starts September twenty seconds. So the big thing they're gonNA push is this xbox all access, which is for the s twenty, five dollars a month you get the ultimate game pass. which includes Xbox live in game pass and the you get that and the series s for twenty five dollars a month for two years, which is a pretty crazy deal because. The Game Password. That launches. Officially. A It's it's tech lean. Beta will let me it's kind of the. kind of kind of fish lead launched not really kinda sort of we up doing it but with game pastors but hundred hundred, fifty games. So right at the box, if you do this process with the Xbox L. Access, you're GONNA get the game you're going to get you're GonNa get all these Games get the console twenty five dollars a month. And that's it. So and then if you WANNA go to step up that's that's thirty five dollars a month. So it's not a big deal.

Xbox Series X and S Prices Revealed

"What do we? It has been for xbox. They finally announced the xbox series s we finally finally finally know the release date in price for both consoles. November tenth is on the next generation of xbox kicks off series x five hundred dollars series as three hundred dollars. A full two, hundred dollars cheaper digital only actually doesn't seem like it's that much less powerful It's basically. into. Four correct me if I'm wrong, it's not four K.. It's fourteen forty. The thrill leaning into the series s that's correct gets, but it can scale to four K. on your four K. TV and it plays media in four. K.. Wow, not video games. So are you surprised at the the two hundred dollar price difference between these two councils it makes the series s really really impressive and tempting I don't think it was something that that many sorta really hard core really engaged gamers like that super interested in this all the price in the specs I've seen a lot of people going to be like well, maybe. Yes. During the times, it's it's well suited to to kind of. Navigate for both kind of Gamers is a needs. If you want the upscale absolutely highest price edition, sure that that's an option. But at the same time, if you're on a little bit more of a budget seem super smart especially just enough in this landscape with twenty twenty it's kind of interesting route a because we know that you know most people don't have a four K. television they probably won't for A. While, and this will make you games look really good on your current television It's a next GEN system for thirty bucks I mean I think that's a really cool a really cool competitive move to make especially now that they have a subscription service to back it up and just a few other things you know xbox has going for it right now, what they don't have is a bunch of exclusive watch games. Held out this long, i. mean it makes sense obviously in the game of chicken but this does seem like one of its greatest selling points semi pun intended. So it's It's interesting that the sticking them less long and obviously due to a leak initially before they owned the news themselves but it's a like mixed. It's a huge differentiator and definitely makes the the deal between the two of them the most significant thing for Microsoft. The value proposition, right? Yeah. The five hundred dollar version two is still like that's kind of what we expected this for some reason it's is I think it's really smart, not the delay but that they kind of. are talking about they talked about the s price at almost the same time because like that's all people were talking about like we would be talking about the PS five versus the xbox price right now as soon as bs five comes out, but there's always gonna be this this three, hundred dollar one and their people don't have to get the of the full one. It's just it's just a really interesting move I can't think of a precedent for at. A financing option to right. So yeah. That's just like another consumer friendly option that is clearly the a big corner cornerstone point for their entire next-gen lineup. Yeah we should definitely talk about that. That's xbox all access which allows you to get in on next generation xbox for as little as twenty five dollars a month for twenty four months you that over two years and that also gets you. Game Pass ultimate to get more than one hundred access to more than one hundred games plus every mega first party game day. One you get. So it's actually it. It seems to be like a staggering deal especially if what if? Halo infinite had been there at lunch twenty, five dollars for twenty five dollars. You got the new xbox and Halo Infinite Right on day one, it's unbelievable. Clearly, there's GonNa be some of those games that you don't care about including every first party game and including EA Games. Now, like that's basically like a price cut like you can imagine that console is sixty dollars even cheaper than the PS five is because you don't have to pay sixty dollars to get a little infant. Yeah the price of that subscription. It's it's amazing. It's really really cool I. Want I want to circle back on really underscores something that Sam said about the xbox series S. The thing that impresses me so much that I think is so smart. That it really did focus in on resolution like if you have a four K. TV like we opie seriously consider the series. But if you don't, if you're either plugging that thing into a monitor or you still have to be like the fact that the series s is pretty compromise free and that really that extra power is only being used to push you know these extra forecast pixels and law resolutions. The Games will just as good. I think that was very very clever and very savvy and consumer-friendly Gosh I don't have enough positive things to say about like that being the point of differentiation between these two consoles and like like I still don't actually have a four K. TV every year every every Christmas. This is the year but then it's like well, then there's then there's other new tech and there's HCR government maybe I'll just wait one more year and so like I'm still chugging away ten eighteen. And You know. So it's like I'm one of US consumers like Sino. I've seen some people wondering like well. It's like. Well, you know we exist for a wide variety of reasons I think it's like seventy percent of people that have consoles don't have a four. K. TV. As you say often use a projector and people find that confounding. Confounding because it's not as great resolution like you can still get a four K. projector and I do and like you know I I have really good setup, but ultimately, it's totally lighting based. So if you're in a bright living room, kind of does not make for a great experience, but you can have a huge. Screen the biggest screen out of any. Huge. Fun. T to do most of your gaming on a projector. That's how you do pre pandemic yeah. Okay Now more committed to a TV. TV. Okay. So a five, hundred, x, three, hundred

RH Profits With Travel Spending Shifted to High-End Home Decor

"The company formerly known as restoration hardware. Honey Monster second quarter profits much higher than expected strong overall sales. And shares of RH are up more than twenty, two percent today in the stock sitting in all time high. Are you just kind of interesting because a lot of what we're talking about right now is people will look at revenue growth look at dooms growth in the quarter or all of these different companies and are each only increased revenue less than a percent. But the really impressive thing was like you said, Christie increase in their gross margin, they're operating margin and. They're not march and their earnings per share. So I think it's kind of a different look than a different response than we've been seeing a lot for these high growth tech stocks. This is more of a company that showing they have a lot of pricing power and they are growing in a less a way that we haven't seen very a lot recently. Yeah RH is. For anyone who's ever been in the restoration hardware you it's one of those stores you walk in. It's like. Well, it's it's clearly nice stuff. It's quality merchandise. Some of it is exceptionally pricey, but I think this. This probably goes along with the narrative. In the same direction as the narrative that we've seen in the last six months with companies like wayfair and Home Depot and Lowe's where. More people are looking around the homes that they are trapped in and saying all right I'm if I'm not going to go on a vacation I'm gonNA spend money improving this place that I live in. Yeah and that was called out in the share holder letter for this quarter, they talk about the elevated level of spending in the home. So yet the booming real estate activity accelerated shift for moving to your home. A lot of people are leaving the city's moving to the suburbs and then taken homebuilding trying to renovate to make sure their workplace is the best place they can have possible and because you're talking about it, I did spend a good chunk of my morning on the restoration hardware look book website, and I now want to buy a five thousand dollar couch. Well I'll be look I'd like to buy A. New Couch. It costs five thousand dollars in. That's why I'm just gonNa stick with couch that I have. The last check what's on craigslist for one hundred dollars? For the growth that this stock has seen and look, we've seen a lot of stocks you mentioned Zoom Zoom in this category, even with the recent drop over the past week or so Tesla, which started out the year at around eighty five dollars a share is still. Around I don't know this morning before the market opened it was close to three ninety. Restoration hardware is up roughly five times in value. Since late March, I, Know Cherry picking the bottom, but it's a reminder that it's not just the. Sexy tech companies that can have these kinds of returns. where I'm going with this Maria, is that for all of this growth restoration hardware and I can't call it h I'm sorry. This company still seven and a half billion dollar company. This is not huge. Do you think? This is still an acquisition target because it seems like sort of thing in the same way that people have said about wayfair despite wayfair growth. You know someone could still come in and make them an offer. Restoration hardware is. Not a very big company and it appears to be very well run, and as you said, they're really doing good things with their margins. I think it's a possibility. So wayfair is about twenty four, billion dollars right now I? Think it has a niche within the luxury market and that's what in their earnings call. They also talk about how they. Have elevated their shift to a luxury brand with luxury market with luxury margins at a higher pace than they anticipated and so I think that if you're looking to expand into this niche, it would be a really interesting acquisition target for them. They do in their letter also talk about all of their long-term growth plans and some of them are kind of lofty they're planning. To Open hotels, they have a luxury yacht called the h three that is available for charter in the Caribbean and the Mediterranean. So they have pretty lofty goals of what they want to be. So I wonder if they don't think they want to be acquired but I think if I was a company looking to grow into that luxury niche, this would be something I'd be considering.

Mint Mobile launches cheap unlimited cell plan

"You know. So many of us per stretched and we're trying to make our budgets last through the month at a time that for many people incomes are down. So one area I'd like you to look at is how to attack your monthly expenses and one that a lot of just pay because that's what we pay is what we pay for cell phone service. So I want to give you a couple of choices on cell phone service that comes with unlimited data from two different companies one geared towards an individual paying for his or her own bill. In the second for people that are joining together with others. On a plan to save money. Let's start with the one for individuals. There's a company that runs really cute TV ads called met mobile. There was. So as a reseller, they bake pass the from the big three cell phone players, and then they sell their own branded service under the meant mobile name. Meant. Mobile is doing a deal right now on unlimited data plan where you've got unlimited talk text and data for a flat thirty dollars a month. But there's some hoops you have to jump through. So let's say you WanNa do this thirty dollars a month plan you could be on one that's significantly higher with others if you're doing unlimited data. What you do is you pay meant mobile for the first three months when you port your number and so you give them ninety bucks and it covers your cell phone service for the next three months. You hit the end of those three months. If you're happy with mobile, you can then by the next year from them at the thirty dollars a month. So, Ye end up having to give them three hundred sixty bucks. But then you know you have no cell phone bill for the whole next year is for the quality of the network with mobile. I never get complaints about that. Now that I've said that Oh hear from people who have complaints, but it is an alternative that can give you freedom from worrying about data overages. or data caps and no you're paying a flat thirty bucks. The other alternative is from verizon discount on a lot of people don't know verizon has a discount operator and people known for years. that. T mobile has metro. And Cricket is at and T.'s discounter but horizon acts like visible doesn't exist. But visible does exist is verizon's discounter and they have a plan called party pay. It's designed for two people together three people together or four people together. On a cell phone plan, but with a twist. If you just get a buddy or a relative or whatever to join you on visibles party Pay Plan Each of you were billed individually. So one person doesn't have to pay the whole bill and then chased the other people to pay them their portion of the bill each month. All they got to do is stay with visible together on their party. Pay Plan. So, two people get unlimited talk unlimited taxed unlimited data for thirty five dollars a month each three people, thirty dollars a month each and you got four people together twenty five dollars a month each. Again this is RISA NHS discount honor. You won't see it on Verizon's website. If you went to a verizon store, they wouldn't know what you were talking about. If you call verizon customer no service, they wouldn't know what it was. You have to go to the website visible dot com. And then you're in the money in the savings on for is network on a variety plan, but from their discount brand called visible.

"This week's project. Car of the week is actually a van and I'm starting to think I should just call this segment. Mo- par project of the week just because. You know I picked more than just cars for the segment. So be ready for that change. I'm trying to be a little bit more diverse with the Mo parts that I choose for this segment because I do like mo parts from all areas and all types of Mo- parts and I think that good moped projects aren't just cars sometimes their trucks, and since I'm on a van kick this week was a van and Let, me say that I actually set out to find van for this week's project. There was just one issue there aren't very many out there. So let's read the ad and then we'll talk some more about vans and why they can make cool projects. The van featured on this edition of Mo- Project of the week was posted on the Mo- part hundred facebook page on Sunday September sixth at nine. AM HERE IS THE AD. Van Three Thousand Nine, hundred, ninety, five, dollars, nineteen seventy five, dodge tradesman shorty three Eighteen v eight auto runs drives and stops pretty well for a forty five year old van. If you've been looking for one of these, this is one to consider not showroom ready. But great start to a street machine serious inquiries only please three, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, five dollars, or best offer title status is clean. So. This ban is a short wheelbase van, which for these is one hundred, nine inches compared to the longer versions that one, hundred, twenty, seven inches the van that I wanna buy from Stacey is a hundred, twenty, seven inches for wheelbase. So it's longer than my dad's was since my dad's was a like this van the one in this ad is to tone it has a light blue base with a thick. Dark blue striped mid body in a dark blue roof. It has a windshield visor which is very buggy vanish and it has my favorite bubble windows of all time. The PENTASTAR portholes they are super rare and I'd love to hunt down a set for my future van project. But if stacy's van ends up being mind, then I'll just settle for the round portholes unless I can find. Those awesome. Pentastar. Wants this van. Also has a grant wood grain steering wheel, which adds to that nostalgic feeling along with that pop up Sunroof, and it looks like at one point back was done up like seventies custom but right now it's pretty bare, which is great. Because most of the time when you find these vans, the cargo area usually needs to be redone. These old buggy vans had all shag carpet and cabinets put in Old Saints and. Things like that. So chances are if you find one of these, it'll probably need new carpet and things like that. This one actually has a plywood floor and looking around it actually looks like the van was originally read. The good news is that it will be easy to strip the cargo area and get creative to create your own space. I. Like the idea of a modern version of a classic book Van Something. Creative enough that you can go to shows and show it off. But you can also go camping, and if you're the nomad life, you can hit the road and live that van life but it would also be cool to get this thing capable of hauling a race car that way you have a place to store your tools, parts, extra tires, and have a place to stay at the track instead of. A ten I really liked that idea for me I like all those possibilities but the possibility of having a mobile podcast studio when I go to events would be really cool and if I bring merch with me, it would make a great display for the Merch to this thing has a three eighteen. It's running and driving and hey, it stops too. So that's always nice I like projects that you can. Drive home and this thing is you know that type of a project, it even has some pin striping on the hood, which is cool because it's kind of like a throwback. It does need some new wheels and tires and some fifteen by ten on fats in the back and some fifteen by eight in the front would give this thing that groovy raked stance that was so popular with these vans back. In the day I, think that this van is also in desperate need of a front lip spoiler and the fender flares, which you can surprisingly still find if you look hard enough online but all in all, I'd say if you were interested in getting a Boogie van for a project for less than four grant, I think this one is a great candidate I actually did reach out to the seller just to. Feel the water and see what the temperature was like and it sounds like he's pretty firm with not much wiggle room. But he said that thirty five, hundred to the right person would take it home. WanNa know what I offered him. But that's a whole nother story since these vans are hard to find think he's in the ballpark the side doors do have a little damage and there's definitely some work probably needs to be done but overall, it appears to be pretty solid. So if you're looking to get back into fanning and relive your youth or even if you're a rookie banner, this would make a fun project keep on Truckin my friends that was Mo- part project of the week Nomo par left behind. Since we're on the topic of vans. This week's high-performance part belongs to a custom Shorty Dodge van and the two thousand, fifteen movie American ultra and because I suck at explaining movies, I finally come to the realization that from now on I think I'm just GonNa read the Synopsis Straight from Rotten Tomatoes.

If you're a business that's selling a car or mortgage or whatnot, you might not have the chance to sit down face to face with your clients.

Tesla's $5 billion share offering to be priced 'at the market'

Tesla's $5 billion share offering to be priced 'at the market'

"Today we are talking about Tesla's possible equity distribution of people have been calling the capital risk today and it may very well be, but we'll go into the details on that. Also, the implications that that may have four, S&P five hundred inclusion, and just a quick update on how that looks after the stock split, and then we have a been a news on model y out of Shanghai as well. So Tesla stock on the. News today was down four point, seven percent to four hundred and seventy, five dollars, five cents but a pretty steep drop from the after hours trading yesterday in the pre market trading today where tussle actually peaked around five hundred and forty dollars per share still though even with that drop today. TUSLA still up post split remember the split happened around four hundred and forty two dollars per share. I've gotten a lot of questions on why it would drop. Today I never know you know you can't you can't know for sure but it did drop on the news of the potential capillaries, which will obviously go into more detail on here. But many brokerages have seemed to have some issues with handling the stock split, which has made in some cases trading unavailable for some people. So there may have been a decent amount of shares locked up yesterday seems like a significant amount of that has been freed up. Today so many of those people in those circumstances may have decided to take some profit off the table after the run that we've seen the last couple of weeks, there's been some theorizing around the Internet that may be some of those brokerage issues were caused by naked short selling, which essentially means your selling a share short that you have not actually borrowed from anyone. You're just sort of creating your little share to sell to someone with the expectation. Being that if you would need to actually deliver that share at some point, you could go and borrow one. But the theory is that the split caused some problems for people in that position because of the need to deliver the four extra shares which has then resulted in some of the scrambling that has caused some of the share lockup for this period. Personally I am relatively skeptical of that theory the only reason that I really bring it up. Is because number one I've heard people having issues with their brokerages the last couple of days and number two to provide an example of things that may not necessarily be known. That could also influence the stock price rather than just the news of the equity distribution today are getting into the possible capital raise. Then I'm sure by now most people have heard that this morning tell disclose in a filing that they have entered into an agreement that will. Allow them to raise up to five billion dollars in cash through a follow on offering of Tesla stock. So that means Tesla can sell share of the market they keep the money for those shares and use that for their business purposes those shares if and when they are sold our newly issued shares. So that ends up increasing the outstanding share count deluding existing shareholders but for the exchange of the new cash coming into the business which can increase. The value of the company. Now in this case was particularly interesting is that normally when capital raises happen, follow on offerings happen there is a fixed price fixed number of shares. So company is going to say, okay, we're going to sell twenty million shares for one hundred dollars a share and raise two billion. That is not what Tesla is doing here. So this is an equity distribution agreement also known as an at the market follow on offering which means. That Tesla as the issue or can work with the banks that are helping facilitate the transaction ten for banks to decide based on the price that day if dessel wants to sell any of this offering all tesla spells this out very clearly in the filing saying quote, we will designate the maximum amount of common stock to be sold through the sales agents on a daily basis or otherwise as we sales agents agree and the minimum price per share. At which such common stock may be sold and quote. So Tesla could end up raising zero dollars from this. If they don't like the price that they're getting from the market that could also raise five billion or any amount in between and they to make this decision on daily basis or even more frequently as they say, they are if they agree to that with the banks facilitating this offering, Tesla just set the minimum price that they'll take and. If it doesn't hit it. Well, that's fine. Tesla doesn't need to raise capital them. Tussle highlights this point in the use of proceeds section. In the filing saying quote, we may issue and sell shares of common stock having aggregate sales proceeds up to five billion dollars from time to time because there is no minimum offering amount required as a condition to close this, offering the actual total public offering amount commissions and proceeds to us if any are not. To terminable at this time and quote as far as what Tesla would actually use any capital wrist four, they say quote, we currently intend to use the net proceeds from the offering to further strengthen our balance sheet as well as for general corporate purposes and quote. So personally I am thrilled with this Tesla now has the ability at any given point in time any single day to raise up to five billion dollars if the stock price surges in any. Particular Day for whatever reason Tesla can offer some shares opportunistically raise some money maybe they decide they wanNA raise a billion or two billion. They have that flexibility. The only real disadvantage of this kind of structure that you're not getting that fixed price you leave yourself vulnerable to a falling share price. So if you actually need the capital, sometimes those fixed prices can be better because you're assuring that you will get that capital, but if you don't need. It and you're just trying to raise opportunistically than this is a perfect structure. My point of view has mostly been that tussle doesn't really need to raise capital. They've got a lot of cash on hand and I think free cash flow is about to start to really ramp up is next few quarters. So even with the market cap being what it has been, I've basically been of the mind that if dessel feels like they need to raise the. Capital all support it, but it doesn't look to me like they need to. So I'm just as happy if they don't and this seems like a perfect middle ground, I liked the amount as well. Obviously could be anywhere between zero and five billion dollars. But even if it is maxed out at five billion and even if it's roughly around the share prices that were at today, let's say five hundred dollars a share. That's ten million new shares Tesla. After the split has about nine hundred and thirty one shares total outstanding. So that's about one percent dilution only that you're looking at to raise possibly five billion dollars even if you don't think Tesla needs capital Beth such small delusion having cash on hand as Tesla said, would improve the balance sheet that can go a long way in improving their credit ratings that can allow them to access cheaper debt there can be a lot of benefits of that cash. I wouldn't advocate for it, but they could use that to pay down some of their outstanding debt, cut those quarterly interest payments that we talked about last week, which would lead to tesla retaining more of their cash better profitability whether they just let that flow through all the way to the bottom line or reinvested elsewhere in the business.

United scraps ticket change fees

United scraps ticket change fees

"The most hated of all airline fees. Is the fee your charge to change your ticket? And never more than right now during corona virus where if somebody books a ticket to travel somewhere, they may later say, ooh, I really don't feel comfortable going. And that's why. The nation's airlines have followed the longstanding policy of South West. With. asterisks where you can buy a ticket now. On. Any US, airline and under Their straightjacket conditions. You don't lose the money. If you choose not to take the flight, you just gotTa meet all the rules jump through the right hoops and all that. But the reality is. Bit Airlines have only looked at what they make from change fees rather than how much business they ultimately don't get because they have changed fees in the first place. Let me explain. So I. Fly a lot on south. West Airlines. Until this year when I'm not flying anywhere because I'm in. Quarantine. Because a pre existing anyway. So I would fly typically in a year. I would take somewhere twenty five to thirty trips a year. Right, now I'm taking zero. So. I had a trip that I talked about. On the show last fall that change five times before I took it and I talked about how on the big three full fare airlines American united and Delta. I would have paid a thousand dollars and change fees before I ever left the ground. But because that was a ticket on south, west at paid zero in change fees. And so it's always been competitive market advantage for South West that they don't charge change fees that other airlines do. Well now, United Airlines. Has announced that they are eliminating change fees. Not Related to corona, virus, just eliminating change fees. On. All their airfares for domestic travel except. Basic economy basic economy is the one where we hate you but we'll take your money and let you fly. That has a long list of don'ts. And all that with basic economy, they have basic economy at the airlines so that their fares look lower. Than they really are. But anyway. As on United. Or going to have no change reason that this is something that upfront looks gutsy on United's part. Because according to the fads united collects over six, hundred, million dollars a year that goes straight to profit. From the change fee junk fee because the reality is. The cost for an airline somebody changing a flight. If any is just a couple of pennies. There's really no cost to the airline is just a junk fee. And so United's walking away from fifty million dollars a month. and. What they're not GONNA get in change fees but what they may well find. Is that people are more likely to book a ticket. Knowing that they can change it later without having to pay pay change fee. Now, we'll see over the course of this week. If The. Other two full fare airlines. American Delta. Follow United because often the three full fare airlines pretty much act like tweedle dee tweedle dum on what they do in terms of junk fees and nuisance fees and all that, and so we'll see and this will. Potentially. Erode. A huge market advantage four southwest airlines if airlines just blanket. Eliminate pretty much all the fares that are subject to junk fees united did not do so for international flights, but most people fly only domestic. So it it's not as much an issue for most people but. This is a very positive change. And I think back. That the junk fee for changing a flight for a long time was twenty five dollars. And then over the years the full fare ions got more more greedy kept raising it to the ridiculous two hundred dollar point and as travel writers pointed out repeatedly. Two hundred dollars change fee in most cases is higher than the fair bid a leisure travel or paid for their ticket in the first place.

Bitcoin Privacy w/ Chris Belcher

Bitcoin Privacy w/ Chris Belcher

"So before we get into it, we'll start with the basics permission list. blockchain's are necessarily public, transparent and DONNAS. That's another way of saying that anyone can look at them without any sort of approval or credentials which makes them public. You can see everything that's ever happened, which makes them transparent, and while you can track what individual identities do, you can't see who those identities tie to in real life, which makes them pseudomonas. But blockchain's are notably not anonymous. It's kind of a wonky point but one worth emphasizing anonymous in this context means there's no continuous identities. So if injuries and I were talking on a cooking forum, the let's post anonymously if we were exchanging messages on a topic and then did so from one week to the next, we wouldn't actually know that we'd spoken before. That's not how most forums work though most forums and most things on the Internet are PSEUDONOMAS and while Andres might not know he's talking to me Adam. He'd see my username my pseudonomas identity block chef, and even though he doesn't know that's my real name he'd be able to figure out that he had talked to block chef before. So in Bitcoin, the situation is much the same instead of calling myself block chef on a recipe forum in Bitcoin I'm known by my bitcoin addresses, and while I might have a lot of bitcoin addresses. A lot of these Sudan's identities. This creates opportunities where privacy can start to unwind and away that sometimes is worse than you might think. For years this has been known to be a problem known to be sort of just an intractable part of the way that cryptocurrency and transparent public blockchain's work. But there have been a lot of ideas and a lot of inventions which have sort of come out which are still many in development now, which are trying to solve this problem which brings us to today's guests. So Chris with that set up that I get anything wrong and talk to me about how you're thinking about privacy these days. No I think you've explained that very well. So a concrete example Ed says people's bitcoin addresses all the PSEUDONOMAS identities it's whether coins are on and a common problem. The people do is address reuse. That's why they use the same address again and again, and again in this analogy, that's like someone using the same pseudonomas name again and again that again, an using you address for each payments on then never again is a bit like making you pseudonomas name and then discarding it you're done with it and just easy another one. So. In that circumstance, it's not anonymous, but it's almost the same as anonymous because there's no reuse between the identities it's not anonymous, but it's pretty darn close. PSEUDONOMAS swear if used correctly, there's automous identity every time however, the identities are linked together. So on the block chain, you see bitcoins flowing from one addressed to another. So it's not like the identities completely new that linked to the loans previously. As, well, as information from the blockchain, there's also leaks based on things like the person's it address. Oh maybe they've posted this address on a public forum somewhere at other leagues that come in as well. What of scary scenario where privacy is broken and like is it for an individual? It becomes scary or is it a kind of Meta threat that's really affecting the whole network when you're talking about privacy and sort of like address re-use things like that. In worst case scenario what's the thing that happens all of the above essentially so one example is if you're a regular user and you want to use bitcoin to buy some coffee, a nightmare scenario is you go to the coffee shop and Buy Cup of coffee and the person serving you can see your whole financial history so they can see income and they can see or the other spends you make. Whether you donate to such charities or anything like that. It's also problem if you'll business because that means if you untie income and. Of Public, you'll competitors could see how much you're paying your staff, how much you pay for supplies and all that kind of thing where you allocate your resources and for the network as a whole, there is actually a related problem of fungibility, which is what I did is privacy. So that's where a fungibility is a necessary property of money. So we have properties like to visibility portability durability and fungibility is just one of those. You need this to be good money and it's the property that every unit is the same as every other unit that means a good can be used as money because. It means it can be accepted for example, banknotes if you get paid with five dollars or five euros, it's the same as five years in general this particular banknote having some special thing you need to check. So the nightmare scenario there is that every time someone accepted Bitcoin, they'd have to actually look up to some kind of database to some kind of checklists check the these particular coins receiving were not for example, banned by some institutional, some government or something, and if that what's happened because these blacklist, these kind of look up tables would be centralized it would destroy the decentralisation property of Bitcoin. But Chris just being a little bit facetious and playful here. What's the problem with that? Like they're just looking at your financial history what can anyone really do about that and if you can see everyone else's financial history to isn't that only fair? Well I. Suppose Turn Back so you could Stephanie CEO Financial History please. Of reasons why you wouldn't want to share that kind of thing and going back to the examples I said of the merchant of the business who runs a business in uses bitcoin. Their privacy is an important part of their business because they need to keep secret, for example, how much to pay US suppliers or they need to keep secret other things that they do, and that's an important for a healthy economy. There's good reasons to hide things from. The public or from your competitors yeah and I think it's important to point out too that there already is like kind of an uneven playing field as far as privacy goes. If you're willing to work for it, you can have a greater degree of financial privacy and if you don't work for it or you don't know how to or you don't think that's important then you're going to be at a disadvantage compared to people who have greater privacy. Even beyond the commercial considerations I think the even greater consideration is the fact that without privacy in your financial affairs, Hugh can be easily targeted for your political associations and your political expression, which given the fact that more than fifty five percent of the world's population live under authoritarian or corrupt regimes means that it is very, very easy to suppress the fundamental mechanisms of democracy representation, political expression, freedom of speech, freedom of Association Freedom Assembly, Etcetera, simply by violating privacy, and then imposing punitive measures as retribution for political expression

This $5 rapid test is a potential game-changer in Covid testing

"We're going to start today with Abbott Labs because the FDA has approved Abbott Labs Rapid Covid nineteen test it is a portable test it costs five dollars you get the results in fifteen minutes. This is not a home kit. This is one that does need to be administered by a medical professional. But. The enthusiasm is apparent shares of Abbott labs up seven percent and hitting a new all-time high. We'll yes and the follow onto that Chris is not only as Abbot up but companies in the COVID testing space one being an I follow fulgence genetics. They are getting taken behind the woodshed I, believe full gymnast I looked down about thirty percent because apparently. ABBOTS tests. As you mentioned again, five dollars a person you get your results in fifteen minutes There's a complimentary mobile APP that is being made available for iphone and. android. Of course, at no charge is going to let people who have who are tested negative. are going to display a temporary digital health pass so they'll be able to. Kind of have a clean slate if you will. This is certainly perceived as a game changer by investors and other companies. Because full does genetic testing and they had they had a lot of success recently and their stock price at least because of covid testing. And Yeah Game, Changer. Yes. I can tell you my my partner for example, was sick about a month month and a half ago went for a test and basically we had to walk in testing. Center only took about twenty minutes, but she then got to spend three days in in the master bedroom masterpass. Sweet alone. And isolated from everyone the dog was there to keep her. Happy. But you know because that's how long it took to get things. So fifteen minutes, this is this is if this works and certainly the numbers it is being fast tracked, but certainly the initial numbers. Certainly. Promising and the in in the absence of the purple vaccine that will set all of life back to normal which i. Am A little skeptical. But in the absence of vaccine, these types of solutions, these types of rapid testing. You know These, are probably the best. The best chance at returning to some semblance of a new normal. So good on Abbott and. Unfortunate. If you've been anywhere else in the space I'm guessing.

Did that and my husband was skeptical but then he got a lot of positive accolades from it and he's like Oh. This is great. This is. Good. All right. So it was a positive reading then. You do. What you gotta get out of this, what do you do in that situation? It's always funny unrelated. But another person was doing reading palms for my husband myself and my brother in law and she read Mine and she read Matt my husband's, and then she got Brian my brother-in-law's and was like I can't tell you what I'm seeing. In can't share with you. That is. Very that scary. I had my tea leaves red ones and the woman told me that. This was a really good life for me because in the past I've had some really terrible ones. So I'm Mike. I'm going to make the most out of this one then sister. Next rate. Goodness well. Again Happy Happy Birthday and. You know like I said, we really hit it off because I feel like. There is. So there's so much confusion when it comes to the be marquette and that's part of the reason that I started. This podcast is you know to give people experts like yourself a voice to come on and help us figure this out and. In a way that wasn't being paid for or sponsored or branded, which look there's a place for that and we will understand it because it's business but I wanted to see you know, is there a place where people can come on and tell it like it is so in Doing that it's seeding rare and the same with me in the world of dermatology is that I have been approached many times every year about being a spokesperson for arena on the board of different companies, skincare companies, beauty companies, injectables, and I have decided I a long time ago and everyone says a really principle that I was not ever GonNa be paid to be recommend anything and the I wanted my opinions to be my own based on the research. I've done on the training I've gone through and in dermatology world. That's exceedingly rare right now, the top hundred dermatologist in this country, it knew that on aesthetic dermatologist everyone is being paid for. Beyond aboard or doing a study or whatever it is, and it's really hard to be objective there and I just have decided that I will be the defender of the consumer at sort of how I viewed myself and I'm in a lot of articles in the press sort of enjoys me because I, like you speak the truth. You want hear about like what? Snail extract few call heather? and Like I love that I love the fact that now I am known as the voice of reason, where think there is very little reason and that's how I started and then unfortunately as they sort of learned more and more about is in care products that were out. The more I realized that even though it is a hundred billion dollar industry. What we may need may not what's available and so that's actually the reason why skincare company didn't start as new wanting to make brand and I actually started talking about wanting to stay very objective. It's very hard for me to recommend my products because their mind and I feel like that's a conflict of interest but at the same time I really I mean, I'm not a chemist I was compelled to do this because after someone's spent twenty five dollars to laser in their face I couldn't tell them what they should use. Afterwards, that was going to be safe and effective in like that I found remarkable

One of your products was featured but I loved it because you and I got to like have a little bit of Banter and meeting and I think that we kind of bonded on the fact that both of us really feel like there is a lot of. For lack of a better term bullshit in the beauty and destroy. and I know recently I've had so many of my girlfriends call me and say how do I get rid of freckles? How do I do this and I'm like well. Do you want results. Do you WANNA. Because then you need to or do you want something that's GonNa like kind of work and make you feel better about it Completely so so so first of all, where are you right now it looks like you're a summer camp I know. So I have been the San, Juan Islands, I married a man from the San Juan Islands. We Pretty much everything for was canceled because of Co bid and my husband doctors. So we're still seeing patients every day and. That makes it. So the kids really aren't having the kind of summer that they should be having. So we have taken days off going to go. Camping, which is not necessarily my first choice of activities, but I am really sort. Oh I will I love boating I. Really do my husband can't can't deal with it. We keep that. What does it Bonein? Really really close by, but I love being out in the water and you know taking a little dip and. When we did our meet and greet you had shown me you know via. Zoom what the San Juan Islands look like an oh my gosh. When travel is starting up again, I'm heading out there it is beautiful. It is beautiful and I love being on a boat. It was actually really funny. I just had my birthday which I was actually with you on and I got an astrological reading as a birthday present from one of my best friends and I am deficient in the water sign, which means that I am really drawn to the water in my entire life I sailed all through college. I'm a scuba diver abode. I'm a surfer and that was it was really fun sort of explanation where it was like I need water at all times way to fiery. Read who did your reading so Again because you can't really have parties when my dear friend had like a group of five of us and they brought someone in and we all were mask and she sat and read all five of us and. And it was. It's just we're trying to find find right now. Right? You can't dinner you can't go to the lake. So we're just wonderful things we can do in this woman was so thoughtful and careful and how she said things. But she still was so crazy accurate where she's like wow. For me, heather you're so busy like you need to calm down. And I'm like, yeah, that's. Right so it was great in another woman who is a big rock climber. Like the third thing she said, Yours, you have a compulsion to touch rocks nowhere like these sort of really accurate things are really fun I. Okay. So first of all, I'm obsessed with astrology I live for this woman Susan Miller I don't know if you know her. Find her a my mother East facts, my Tarot card readings to me at work. Yeah I know. But I I love at night I read my horoscope for Dan. I do believe that there are these cosmic.

"Well I would I will I will point out that the district's where more progressive candidates one we're blue districts already, and very well may just be examples of of. More Congressmen and women who are at the extremes of their party in the same way that in the eleventh district. Of North Carolina last night, a person more conservative. Than Ben Trump and mark meadows wanted to win one the primary in a Republican primary north. Carolina I think it's an example of. Of both parties just kind of running to the extremes I wanNA keep talking about all of this I wanted to get to two been very good point about Democrats trying to. Whole to stretch this out to be an election issue because I. Don't know that disagree with that either, but we do have to get onto our quickfire round. We take questions from our audience for our guests each week and we'll ask you to send those questions into us on twitter and instagram at politico on twitter and instagram at politico on, or you can email them. Them to us. PODCAST AT POLITICO DOT COM We have questions from the audience. We call it quickfire round. We'll see how quickfire these can be may never end up being that quick, but we'll give one to each Each guest Alexis from Miami will start with Ben Alexis from Miami asks who is doing more damage to trump Sarah Cooper or the Lincoln project. I honestly am not sure that either of them are doing any significant damage. To trump I do think that trump is owned man and the massive source of of damage that he does is is self earned into himself. so Alexis. I will tell you that I. Guess if I had to do marginally I would say that the Lincoln Project. Is. Utterly irrelevant, it is entirely about UH, taking money from donors and spit, and putting it into the pockets of political consultants and had buyers those things crop up occasionally, but they've been doing a lot of that in recent years. So that's what all politics. Henry Henry Stephen from Charleston not sure if that's West Virginia or South Carolina, but Stephen From Charleston asks. Why has president trump given up on covid? Why has he given up on what? covid nineteen. You know I think. The president has was always. Lukewarm about the shutdown He wants to get back to what he believes is a good selling point. Which is the? Once robust economy and I think he also knows that he loved it. He had daily press conferences in April that were canceled when he suggested he says jokingly ingesting bleach to fight the disease. Ice Look at elections all around the world and virtually every incumbent left right and center as seen an increase in their approval ratings in their party standings, because all of country once in a time of crisis is called in stable leadership. Trump is about the only one who seen his standing down and I think he knows that. Elliott Brinda from Los Angeles Why based on this question I'm going to guess she lives a little bit outside of Los Angeles but it says. Why do protesters and rally-goers get to spread Kovic while when I still can't go back to work only God? They're not getting sprayed coded the protests have generally been. Very mast up. I have been one of those voices saying that all protesters should wear masks. So, so, it's not, it's not a situation where the protesters are getting spread Cova. We want everybody. To be as safe as possible while they're outside, and that includes wearing a mask washing your hands, and doing all the all the things, a possible that keeps stuff safe now. One difference is an outtake Brenda's. I'll take Brenda's premise. At least this bar one of the things that you can't do very well at a protest is socially distanced and this is a real concern with the protesters, even though the majority of them wearing masks, the inability to social distance during a protest, is a problem one way to correct for that problem or ameliorate. That problem would be to stop. The police tactic that's called Kennelling this involves them kind of shutting. The protesters together along corridors where it's easier to control them I think the most famous case actually happened here in New York about. Or a bunch of protests about five thousand protesters were trapped on the Manhattan grades for an hour and a half. To Kettle them between Brooklyn and Manhattan. Except that the police could not do that and let the protesters fan out a little bit or that would also increase safety and decrease the spread of the virus but it's not a brandon. It's not a situation where where people are turning a blind eye. To the potential spread of the virus protests something that people who care about the protesters lives. Are Very very concerned about me. Personally, it's one of the reasons why have not been at a protest. I live with my mother who seventies high risk person and I have not felt like. I can risk to protests that I support in theory. given the realities of the virus. Okay Ben Jason From Boston Asks Can Biden Win Without a black woman assuming as VP. I actually think he could I think that in the context of the moment I. think he won't bother to try. And that's the shortest answer I can give you. Okay okay. Henry care from Nashville asks is John Bolton correct? Did the dims blow the impeachment? Absolutely they blew the impeachment. If their goal was to remove Donald Trump from office that the only way you can remove somebody from office to have the consent of the other party, but from the moment that the Ukraine Gate for lack of a better phrase came out, it was clear that democratic can be manager's house. We're going to have a rush to judgment to get this out the doors quickly as possible and to make no serious attempt to persuade Republicans that their leader was crooked or criminal enough to remove from office so absolutely. It was botched if the. Was To actually Donald Trump in office. Okay and Ellie will give you this one last because I'm biased. I know your answer already and I.

"Brooks and Brianna Taylor we still waiting for them to arrest the cops who killed. Brianna Taylor were still waiting for justice for racial. Brooks were happy that today. Finally, the grand jury charged them Michael's. Who are the people who lynched? Right, but that's the black twitter conversation on white twitter. It's all about these statutes in the media. It's all about these statues I guess lots of meteoroid straight, and in the past week and a half I've been asked to write an article on gone with the wind which. I've been asked to come on shows like this one is talking about statues and get better because I have some. You know I like to talk about George Thomas Union general was also from Virginia. WHO has a statue? You'd give me a straight up history lesson. I get called on to talk about these things. Not One person has called me and asked me to come on show and talk about race Brooks, right so I. point out just to say like I agree that the message is being hijacked, but it's being hijacked by a media culture that. Statues being down and dragged around and spray painted like that's a good visual talking about. Is it important for? Is it not important at that point for someone to say? Hey, white people shut up. Stop taking this. Frank. Stop taking this moment away because if it is, you're not the first person I've got I've got a tally with one of my very best friends. who every Tom something else gets cancelled. She just marks another check and she says exactly what you say. She said that Amo people. That's your people. That's why people who are making these who are asking cancel patrol and shit like that and she says exactly the same thing you do, but is it not i? Mean I hate to say that? It's incumbent, but I do want to ask. Is it. Would it not be valuable or important for more people to say exactly what you've just said here to US tonight, which which would be when they go on to say stop I don't WanNa talk about that I. Don't want to write about that. Stop trying to take these things down because there's only a certain amount of political capital that was available there and it's being wasted. Is it not I mean? Are People really talking about the systemic changes that are necessary, or are they talking about? Andrew Jackson's statue, and does that not concern you And how do we stop people from doing that? Like I said I. Feel like I'm black sweater and blackout Asians with black voices. There's a whole ongoing continuous conversation about what can be done about police brutality, it says conversation that Cory Booker and Kamala Harris for having a conversation that happens when we talk about Clean Castro's police conversation that a lot of people are trying to have Democratic Party to like get them to to to. Put a little more more teeth into their bills. The Democratic Party voted today to block maybe the most. Centrist proposal that Republicans have ever put on the floor of the US Senate when it comes to police reform because they want this to be a campaign issue in the fall. How are we supposed to take this conversation? Seriously? I mean I listen I. I I don't. It's not my place I'm going to jump in and give my opinion anyway. I happen to agree with that there, but there's also. They're also elite, two black senators on the democratic side and I. I'm not sure what their position was. I didn't follow up on that really myself, but yeah. Basically a little bit of progress is better than no progress at all. Not just a bit of a more roast. Is it not just a bit more racism La for white people to pretend that they know better how to handle this situation right now. Than than black people, white people know better and white people have decided that the best way to do. This is to change the name of these towns to change the names of the get rid of these statues, etc, and it's just it's more. It's more racism to act as if the white people know how to handle this better than black people who are saying no. Let's talk about Reshad Brooks. Let's talk about Brianna Taylor. That's continue to talk about George Floyd. Let's continue to talk about reforming polices police departments. Doesn't someone need to say? Stop being stopped acting like you know better. Okay so two points one. I agree with you. Yes, and I do feel like people are trying to do that, but my second point is that the reason why the difficult dance Klaas that we need the election. Like, we black people are a vocal minority, but we are still fundamentally on minority. We cannot get popular chance. The allies are hurting the cause they. Look I. I spent a I think. Michael Harry from the root, said that describing me that I spend most of my time, excoriating Democrats and a little bit of my time making fun of Republicans like I. Like. Sounds like me. Agree like I I need Democrats to do better than they are I need White Democrats do better than they are right now, but I can't deny the fact that. I've made this point before I've I've been writing publicly rioting writing the public facing way since two thousand eight. There is no article that I've written since two thousand eight about police brutality that I can not essentially cut paste chase name of the black victim changed name of the White Cop and put it up tomorrow, and you think it's the same article, right? You think you think it's a new article like the this has been a long term problem in the African American community. It's a long term thing that we have. We have rallied about, and this moment is the most multi racial multi ethnic moment ever. On this issue. I mean we haven't seen a multi ethnic group Rally for Civil Rights on the scale since the sixties. So you have to find a way. I, think what blackmore trying to do right now. Black leaders are trying to do like Alicia Garza who's actually founder of black lives. Matter right or we're trying to do is find a way to merge the ally ship, which isn't always helpful as you point out clay into something that can still have the kind of positive long lasting change in the last point that I'll make. Is that I? I don't think that you see remember. We just had an election yesterday and progressives in new. York, state did very well and I. Don't think you see that you know. We elected three black people for Congress in your to of openly gay I. Don't think you see this kind of progressive congressional primary victories that we saw without everything's been happening over the past couple of weeks. So I think there is the movement is moving in the right direction, but yeah, you're right, not not all ally ship is the best ally ship right now. Well I would I will I will point out that the district's where more progressive candidates one we're blue districts already, and very well may just be.

"The Electoral College wanted a different type of leader. And they have seen over the last two months that he's not that type of leader. He can't do it and I think it's going to be very difficult for him to win. Those people back using the old playbook given the times and the concerns we have. So the divide and conquer thing, it may be what he doubles down on then and as Ben just just told us we didn't know beforehand. Four hundred National Guard troops have been called out in DC to guard some of these monuments certainly. We are at a time right now. In this country and have been for the last few weeks where Race is a hot topic. Equality is a hot topic It's gotten a lot of attention that I think it's needed for years and years but it has allowed in some ways for the president to double down on his. Divisive, And, so, what do you think happens with this? You're the one who informed me of it so I'll let you talk about it I. The these new National Guard troops that are out to protect confederate monuments I guess other monuments also in D. C.. is it is really. Do you think it's really being done by the President? In order to protect monuments, or do you think it's being done to to? Protect his his standing with his base. I think the past couple of days have been. Really bad for not just the president, but the entire Republican Party when it comes to this issue that no. In the past several years Klay as you know and really going back decades, Republicans conservatives and their organizations have done an enormous amount of work fundraising off of wrapping the flag around themselves like bill, the butcher or something like that and raising a heck of a lot of money. As the defenders of the American founding you know all of these leftists want to tear these people down rhetorically. At least we're going to stand with them once they raise that money, then use it to argue for lower tax rates, and for less regulation for large businesses and other things here and there, but really when it comes to the cultural fight about history. They've ceded the turf to a left that. Has Much more in common with the sixteen nineteen project, and you of American history is being. Fundamentally corrupted by the sin of slavery and everything else attendant with it. Last night in Madison we saw the the. Decapitation of a union soldier and anti slavery worker, his statue was hauled through the street and thrown in the lake We saw the bringing down of a progressive feminist statue. We saw an openly gay democratic state senator attacked in the street for filming some of the protesters. And Beaten by eight to ten of them. He ended up in the hospital. The point is this is stuff that's out of control and I think that regardless of whether these cities are run by Democrats or not, they are. This redounds to a situation where a president who has talked so much about law and order is viewed as being incapable of making that happen I. think that he's going to have to take significant steps in the coming weeks to change that narrative I think that Republican politicians very few of them have been willing to stand with him on this point I think they're all pretty nervous about what could happen. But I. Think they're going to have to make a choice here because you can't run as the Party of law and order, and then have people who care about them, witness, these very statues of these founders, who they respect regardless of their sins, being torn down, and have that be something that happened from their perspective on your watch. And Care about statues. I. Care about explain that Claire. Just dig into that a little bit more so i. know what you mean by that. Look if. If there is a statue that in some of these protests gets torn down. That shouldn't be and we can debate should or shouldn't I tend to think for instance that ulysses s Graham is a hero is a good guy, is a guy who's who has an interesting and important history or role to play in American history. Was He perfect note? Did he own slaves? Yes. The free that sleep. Yes, that's an important part of stories. I think, but my my point is I think grants again. God I would not have torn down grant statue, but you know what we can rebuild grant statue. I would. I would be willing to do Tabula Rasa right turmoil, Dell, and then we can rebuild the ones that we want in a pluralistic society because the thing is, is that so many of these statues were created or rected or supported? Back during a time when people who look like me didn't get a vote didn't get a say. Did they have an opinion to an opportunity to express our opinion on who should be honored on in our country in our states in our communities right so now that we? Are living in a more pluralistic society. Where everybody gets a vote, a voice a chance to voice their opinion. Let's not knock down whatever you down, and we can all come together as a nation and bigger out cooler, going to redirect right, but that would that pluralistic society really at this point allow anyone statute to be up? I mean yes, we are allowing, but if we're allowing people to veto. If. We're allowing any anyone. Veto anyone then. We. GonNa find that. But I guess I'm just I'm trying to figure. I've heard over the last week or so. People saying that George Washington should not be memorialized in statues. Thomas. Jefferson should not be Mount Rushmore should be reconsidered. Teddy Roosevelt was was. was a colonialist I mean. We we do live in a society where every voice gets amplified so much that do you not worry that? If we sort of cleared everything and started from from scratch? No one would ever agree that anyone deserved. Adult adulation like that no and the reason why? I I come at this from the from the position of always being a minority in society like the. The the fact is that just because there is a small group of people saying one thing that doesn't mean that holds true for the majority of the country, and it doesn't mean that true for majority of the minority that you're talking about right, so yeah. But. It's still making a lot of people I mean Jimmy. Kimmel has been in the news a lot this week because he had. He's been called out for some black face he did in sketches back in the late ninety s early, two thousands Do you think that that is a fair? Criticism to to to have of him to dig that up from from way back. Do you think that his show would be cancelled? Or do you think that that's just a small minority of voices who are calling for that? GonNa. Try to answer them all. But it does. My and it's because I disagree with the premise of the question, right? Is it better to dig that up. That's it's. It's white. People who today or yesterday figured out that Jimmy Kimmel black face back of day black I'm not disagreeing with that black people. Black people been talking about how maybe Jimmy Kimmel's Whiteface was made him not the best spokesperson for some of the racial and social justice issues that he has. Spoken about black, evil been knew about Tina. fey Is. History of putting black face on her show and thirty rock black people been there about aunt Jemima being racist. We been knew about Uncle Ben. Being a racist caricature like our issues that black people have talked about or a while the difference. Doesn't want the dip doesn't affect things though to take inches off of off of the box. Does that improve does that? Is that an improvement in your? I don't think I should have a racist type. Stare me in the face every time I go into the painting. I think so no brainers. The difference in this moment is that white people for the first time in a lot of these situations are noticing some of the racial problems that black people have been talking about an act of agitating about for some time. So, what do we do that right? So that's to my first your first part of the question like I. Do not think it is unfair to Jimmy Kimmel to point out some crap that Jimmy Kimmel actually. Nobody lie and Jimmy Kimmel like he did that now. How do we go forward? Well? One of the things that we have seen in one of the things that can the majority of black people, the majority of people color tend to coalesce around. Is that okay? Understand what you did wrong? Understand why it was wrong. Apologize and before. Jimmy Kimmel can apologize in move fourteen vacant. Apologize before we can do the right think. Uncle Ben can be changed into Peter. Parker's uncle bed with great rice comes great responsibility. We can do this. It's not hard..

"Bringing back people like Brad Step. Corio dowse keys just see sense of let's Assembly old team again and I suspect that in reality he's much more of an organizer. An the data guy which is known as except Vin rally refresh that we all know that Kushner. Who runs this? Really is the president the president this all campaigns reflect the candidate, but the trump campaign like the trump organization before it really isn't expression of one man's personality and one man's well, and other people trying shape, but he really is his own campaign in some. If he's if it's his will, then what that image of him getting off? Marine, one say la. The IT got turned into a mean a lot, but I mean. Do you think that. Do you think that he felt? His numbers I mean he hasn't believed the polls obviously for a hot second when they don't when they don't show what he wants them to show, but there was definitely a difference about the way about his mood and his way he carried himself when he got off Marine One. You saw that video I'm assuming. Of course. I look, there's a thirst on my side of the aisle for trump to be said. This man has caused so much pain. To so many people so many people who you know don't look like him. Don't have as you know. Why aren't mail Art Straight? He's anybody looks like him actually. Talk. He's caused so much pain to so many people any seems to enjoy doing it right. He seems to be having fun. All the time I think that's fair. Do you think he enjoys hurting people, or do you think he enjoys pumping absolutely? Well that's all that's different thing, but I absolutely think. Oh, come on, now I actively I i. honestly think that this person is psychopath who enjoys other people's suffering and I will die on else. That's not Michael. Come on. Let. Him Die on the hill. I agree with you. Come on. Your points finish. The because of that feeling. I think there is a feeling on the left that way. He is sad. Things are going well, and so that means that that moment of him seaney all depressed and sad face. As he got off the as off the helicopter that made people feel like. Hey, this is happening. Some actually losing I can tell look how sad he is. And I and I push back against that I. Am I am worried about that I'm worried about how I am worried about the need. I think we have for trump to be sad. Because just because the man is sad doesn't mean that he's losing and I think Henry. while. You know while saying that. Things don't look great for trump right now. It's important to make a distinction between his support which has always been around this level versus enthusiasm of I don't think there's actually good evidence that his enthusiasm is. Way is waning. You know trump has an incredibly dedicated group of supporters that group of supporters shows up to boat. That group of supporters is over represented in the Electoral College to think that this man is beatable or wounded. Because some K pop fans ruined is Kobe. Rally I think is is the wrong lesson to take from this, and so I worry about the as as you put. I worry about the naming of sad trump. That's not the point. The point is to beat him in an election and nothing that help it happen. It's also a helps Democrats. Beat trump in an election. that. Right about that for a slightly different reason, which is that? What people who want trump to lose should want. Is that face in November? The problem is that he has that face now, and that's a recognition perhaps of the reality, which which Henry was laying out. I think the biggest support for or help for the left in this election is the Hubris of the trump campaign and operation, which having defied the odds so many times before. You know is frequently of the mind that you know. Even if the odds say this, oh, that's ridiculous. You know that we don't believe those numbers It would be better for the left if that was still the attitude that they have but I think that right now. The attitude is much more awareness that they are coming. They're going to have to dig out of a hole that they're going to have to spend all of that money that they have amassed in smart ways. That, they are going to have to force Joe Biden out of the basement and onto the field Because until they have that I think that what we've learned is that he has been. Unable to define Joe Biden as being a lackluster. or or slow candidate in the way that he would like to. Well. That's that's you're headed exactly where I wanted to go, Henry I I wanted to ask if in his mind as he walked out of that Marine One helicopter was Oh. CRAP, that didn't go the way that I wanted it to go. That didn't go the way that I hoped it would go if he had that sadness in that moment. Is He capable? Of Making Change mid course do you think that something? been hit the nail on the head. As far as I'm concerned. He has really gone off gut instinct and fallen into success in some ways time and time again over the past three years four years. If you count twenty sixteen. Is He capable of making the changes that might be necessary now that he realizes Oh crap. What I thought was going to work may not be working. No I think he is not, he is capable. Is Capable of shifting issues and shifting emphasis as he sees reactions, or he sees opportunity so shifting from Biden is not up to the job to biden as weak on China or the Democrats on immigration. He certainly capable of that, but he really needs knows only one political speed, and that is divide and conquer. He believes that by. Creating sharply divisive messages he riles up support and then he can win. That's basically what he's been doing for five years and I think particularly with covert and floyd murder that. A people in the middle, the people he needed to get in order to win..

"No, no. You, know what listen to their. I'm still. I'm still looking at sinecure I. If I. If we if we were playing a drinking game for five dollars words, I'd be drunk. Rejoinder sinecure who I'm lost. Let's let's talk. Let's let's talk about somebody who doesn't know what those two main either because Asher as hell don't Let's go back to this topic that we were we did start the week out out with and I was going to start the episode with that I got sidetracked here. Yeah, trump's rallies been. You mentioned him in a minute ago? You said something about how you know. It seems like every time something comes up. It's going to be. The thing that that brings down the presidency or you said something to that effect. There has there has seemed to be consistency. Over the past three years that nothing he does seems to affect the enthusiasm of his base right, but there was a little bit of. A. Downturn in enthusiasm, last Saturday at his rally and Tulsa. Whose fault was that? Is that because the Tigers and Some, other people on social, media! Sucked up all his reservations, the the trump campaign says that's not the case, but I would think they would grab onto that excuse because the alternative is, people are worried about corona virus and didn't WanNa. Come or his enthusiasm is actually down. which do you think it was been? So I I think it was kind of everything I mean. I think that there was a a little bit of a tock sort of trolling factor but in terms of the reporting that we've seen that actually digs into it. That seems to have been a little bit of a sideshow i. do think that one of the things I noticed because I get a about. You know I'm. I'm not telling you that I'm an important person, but the Donald Trump campaign emails me about twelve times a day and the Joe Biden. Out. Brag about that. So, they're always asking for my interest. I mean it's amazing. But. One of the things that you do notice is that they were pushing this rally very hard and they made it very easy to sign up. You could have signed up basically with two clicks, and that means that I think there were a lot of folks signing up just out of some expression of support, even if they weren't from near there and had no intention of going I also think it was a huge mistake on their part to hold this whole thing in an indoor arena, there's a big psychological effect at this moment on the difference between being indoors and being outdoors I was at the indoor arena in South Carolina where he had his last big right before that South Carolina. Vote that obviously. started the Biden comeback on led to his nomination and. Being there there was a crowd inside the stadium of I would say about Twelve thousand or so, and then outside you know maybe another couple of thousand it was it was a crowd that was I think fairly Of of his approach this time around you know if you had less than half of that I would say the the problem is. I don't think you can necessarily extrapolate from that and I don't think it's all that significant the scheme of things. He seemed a lot more on point when he was speaking to these youngsters at the turning point conference in Phoenix the other day. Seemed a lot more. And a little bit more of himself, but he thrives on this stuff. He really needs it. In order to have any thrives on the enthusiasm right. He thrives on the crowd. Doesn't have the crowd like the difference between someone who's a caffeine addict when they don't have their morning coffee, or they're red bull, or half you when he doesn't have that, he gets very lacklustre very quickly, and I think that this was as much a an effort on the part of the campaign to inject some energy in a candidate who's been frustrated by confronting some real challenges as a president in terms of the last couple of weeks with a little bit of energy. It didn't work in Tulsa. They'll have to find ways to make it work going forward. Henry! What do you think is the reason that he didn't have that turnout? I think one of the big things was just a huge mistake with the campaign and setting expectations that one of the first things I learned as a aspiring teenage political activists is always have a crowd that is larger than your space, so if you're gonNA. Reserve a nineteen thousand seat arena. You'd better Dr Welby sure you can fill up and I think that they shouldn't. Everybody has in the past right he has been. Able to fill those but he hasn't had. It happened after the rumors and I think first of all they massively overestimated the ability of people or the willingness of people to go indoors in order to hear him speak, and I think that they had massively mis-read. Watt those supposed million RSVP's actually met. You know clearly has been mentioned. There was not a hard commitment to actually attend on behalf of many of them, and I think part of it was. An attempt to manage as Vincent the. Candidate who needed is morning jolt of coffee, but the way they did. It ended up. Grading a big embarrassment. You? Don't you really don't think there's any indication that his support is waning or that? People are less enthusiastic I mean. I know we don't trust polls implicitly, but the New York Times upshot this morning I think had him at thirty in the Mid Thirties in support and Joe Biden at fifty percent nationwide. There is a lower level of enthusiasm for the president. Right now is they're not no. It does lower level of support. But that what we're talking about? His enthusiasm among his base is base. Isn't that much smaller? What he's doing is losing the people who weren't likely to come to these rallies anyway. The sort of casual supporter of trump and I think he looks very bad for re election right now. I don't think there's any way to read. The date of that are coming out in the thing that a disaster for the president is much likelier than a victory, but that shooting kids Brad, Pascall. A, dead man walking. Out Not Convinced Brad Pascal has really been in charge of this campaign for quite some time you read our local people who are following this detail and they said that the real person charged strategy aspects of the campaign is jared as can see..

"You can rest assured that there are plenty of career or a civil service non political appointee. Appointee attorneys, who, if the trump administration is being investigated or if the trump organization is being investigated, are Wellin- possession of facts that if the investigations were being politically with how would have both the motive in the means to easily leak it to the press? So this is why well so is that really the way you want your the US? Attorney's Office to work I. Mean just because anyone. There anyone who thinks that's not how attorneys work is hopelessly naive. Yet, but don't they usually put a US attorney in the US? Attorney's position usually filled with someone who's been a prosecutor I mean you're not going to point me to that role or Elliott's not an turning. I I wasn't attorney once I'm not an attorney now. The fact is I don't follow. who gets a pointed as US attorneys and I. Haven't made that my career in looking at the past. Career, prospect or client has career A. Of people who end up being appointed to US attorney, I do think that if you think that the trump organization is being investigated by St N. Y. that you will likely find out that a either. That's true and things are going to proceed, or if they weren't going to proceed, you would find out about it. Another way to jump to the conclusion without evidence is something that I find very distasteful. So Henry. Do you think that the prosecution? The investigation that we know is happening on answer originally think that goes forward regardless of this. I think that it will go forward regardless of this move. If the investigation continues to bear fruit, that law could potentially have been broken the other thing is that I have not heard anyone. Tell me that there are statutes of limitation that are being run up against that somehow if Rudy Giuliani did violate a law that the delay of a investigation from July until January when Joe Biden would be able to appoint his own us. Attorney would somehow be materially damaging to the course of justice. It may be materially damaging to. To the attempt to politically attack the president, because that would be timed after the election, but if concern is the rule of law, no one's told me that there's any statute of limitation that Rudy Giuliani can escape or somebody under investigation can escape until January their Scott free again. The question is is this politics that you're concerned about? Not You, Ellie, but the people who are talking about this more generally, or is this the rule of law? I don't see how the rule of law is being disturbed. One iota by what's going law. been. Well I don't know if he wants to respond to that, but I was going to ask as sort of a broader question about this, which is the? We I do think that the the there are a lot of little interesting moments that we've learned about in the trump administration where we think something really significant is happening. That's going to. Bear fruit or have some deep ramifications as to the future of his presidency, and my feeling is that most of the time that turns out not to be true, and that within just a very brief say three or four days. We have forgotten the moment in question. The beginning of this week. We were talking about his. Terrible turnout in Tulsa, and we're getting to that, don't you and And and you know and we were, and we've been talking about a number of other. You know this this sort of sarcastic line. That may not be sarcasm about testing in the like. His frustrations with dealing with. A situation that he sold himself to voters as being exactly the kind of person handle in terms of authority and law and order, and now just this evening We're learning that the National Guard is deploying four hundred troops. In Washington DC to defend various monuments, potentially setting up clashes with protest groups i. just kind of feel like in this presidency this this is an interesting moment in the sense that you know the firing or the resignation of Berman. It's something that. Have Future. Ramifications I. Don't think we can say that at the moment, but I do think that this is one of those situations where There's so many things happening that we have to try to pick out which is the one that is most important, and I didn't even mention John Bolton in that sentence. Listen. This is it's like drinking from a fire hose? Sometimes on this podcast because there's so many things to talk about, I definitely want to get to that, but Elliott. WanNa. Let you have the last word on on this. Justice Department discussion. If there's anything you wanted to respond to with from Henry or been Larry joined, and only I. Only throw this out here. In the spirit of this odd chasm, the spirit of let's all get along since Ben brought up one about as with Eric. I. Do not see how the trump administration we cannot get ourselves to the point where we realized that the Department of Justice has to be de-politicized. Wherever, you think about the politics of whatever you whether whether you're left right or centre? I think we can clearly see that. Having the Justice Department be just another political appointee like the EPA director or the Secretary of Energy does. Not Real damage the law which I think it does then certainly perception damage to the wall, having a situation where look, the constitution is relatively relatively clear here. The president gets the point the his cabinet right, but we could by statutes say that once appointed the Attorney General Serbs six years and can't be fired right like we. We can do that by statute. Having statue where the where the attorney general was not subject to the political whims of the president would be a good thing, and it's a lesson that we could learn. After Richard Nixon fired his way into Robert. Folk so in the spirit of getting along I would hope or after John F.. Kennedy hired his brother right. Let's talk about what? Everybody's doing all in there. Just two slightly back against that, my concern with that would be that what we would end up with is a lot of people who look like they are. Elite trustworthy. Stand up. Righteous Citizens to occupy the office, and that gives you someone like James Comey. Who you know whatever you think of him. In the in the current context is trump critic in my view in the twenty sixteen period in his handling of the Hillary Clinton investigation virtually every decision he made, you can make a stronger argument for the opposite you know just at every stage, and in ways that both would have potentially helped her or hurt her with. The danger with those kinds of things is that you end up with someone who satisfies the elite sinecure of of Washington without necessarily being someone who can actually serve the country and the best way, but here's the thing. It's kind of. You're damned if you do damned if you don't. Do, you want the partisan. Who's going to defend the person in the White House and looked their interest..

"I know that they've the public statement from Kerry? Koubek and the Justice Department is that that did not play a role. In Attorney, general bars decision to abruptly fire him. I don't know that that's a position that a lot of people in New York on the right side of the spectrum in the legal community believe. That to defy going along with something that seems to be a pretty basic thing to just sort of tell built blasios that he needs to enforce the law equally when it comes to these communities as opposed to engaging in what I believe, it's been a systemic approach to targeting these communities as if they're the worst offenders, maybe they are. Maybe they aren't, but it smacks of antisemitism in a way that is I, think really toxic and awful, and I think that there was pressure politically to make a statement. To sort of brush back against these restrictions that had been seemingly targeted against a religious community, and he clearly didn't go along with that and very quickly after that. Follow this decision I. It's hard for me to believe the two things aren't connected. Okay, so let me. Get in here. I just want to make sure I wanna get you in here. Elliott but I WANNA. I WanNa make followed that also been so you're you you're. Correct me if I'm getting it wrong. Your position or your your theory is that there might there must have been sort of connection between his unwillingness to sign onto this letter and his sudden removal from the position. that it that it just seems to, it just seems to close in approximation and the fact that they had spent a day basically arguing about it. And with him, saying no and the top sort of flight insistent. Yes, to me. That was just kind of I. It's the type of thing that's a last straw if you're already irritated with somebody. It seems like if you're going if you're going, make a jump like that to say that it must have been this then. It's also not a big leap. If you're willing to make that assumption, it's also not a big leap for people on the left to say. It really seems as if though it probably had something to do with the fact that he prosecuted. Michael Cohen and that he was investigating Rudy Giuliani. I mean. Is it. To be able to make those two also I think I think it's certainly possible to be all of the above. It's just in this case the fact that they had this dispute apparently and. The reporting seems to be pretty solid. That was ongoing on the eve of his dismissal. That you know, the the thing that seems to happen with this administration is that there's always kind of a last straw dispute. There were certainly one in the instance of John Bolton there was there's been. Instances of a lot of other people who've been dismissed and I think in this case you know. Maybe they were already irritated with him at things that he was doing, but I think this smacks last straw dispute just as that's my own personal opinion without any additional information other than what Wall Street. Hop in here. What are your thoughts? I? Just reject the notion that I'm supposed to treat bill bar and this administration with good faith, right? Because, they have not done a single thing to earn it, and I'm not required to wake up every day like a newborn babe. Who looks at the world as if it is new, it is not new bill bar has not done a single thing to earn one Scintilla of my trust. He auditioned for this job promising that he would essentially end the molar investigation, which he then did, and then lied about it, and misled the public about what the more investigation was really about. He has not for one moment of his tenure acted like an impartial of a lawyer and instead acted like trump's lawyer. For the entire time. This is the second time during the trump administration where they have fired the head of Sdn wide, which is significant, because Suny has jurisdiction over trump's business and his family business, and that's why. Why the IMF does suggest the the the thought is that there was something shady going on here and let's not forget finally that the only reason why Jack Berman had this job is because trump refused to points a head for the s for the ESPN. Why after he fired pre Bra again, not trying to kneecap the office that is in charge of getting his personal business. I'm not required to forget all of that. I don't required required to fire I. DON'T I? Don't think you're required to forget any of that. Of course not I mean. I didn't take air colder seriously when he was of course. The last Attorney General held in contempt of Congress for refusing to testify not. Avoiding and defying subpoenas, you know that we're com- completely based in factual reporting, regarding the fast and furious program. I mean I. Don't think that any Republican took him seriously as attorney general. I. Don't see why any some who's on. The left would take a bill bar seriously as attorney general. We're in a divided situation right now I don't think that that's going to change anytime soon. Elliott don't don't. Is there not something to be said for the fact that they replacement? That's that's the person who's GonNa. Take a Berman's place in New York Audrey Strauss. Has Been his deputy and is not necessarily I mean some people have claimed that she might actually be tougher on the trump administration if if his goal was truly and I know I know when someone's going to help me with the name, but I'm not the initial plan. To appoint Jay. Clayton from New Jersey right as the as the interim. Or the new. Attorney US Attorney Sdn y but. If if bill bar stepped back and said okay, we'll follow the. We'll follow the law audrey. Strauss will take over Audrey Strauss's someone who's been there for a long time and is probably likely not going to take it easy on Donald Trump in any way or take it easy on his friends. Is, they're not reason to at least concede that perhaps bill bar. Is playing by the rules right there actually I think you said when you I think you said it right in your setup for the question bill bar step back and decided to follow the law. Trying to be unbiased, do it. Wasn't as I call first call was support Jay. Clayton, who is trump's golfing buddy to had again? The the body that has original jurisdiction over trump's businesses right now afterglow up into space, and that that has everything to do with Berman's backbone in this situation, not bars. Wants Berman stood up to bar bar was forced into as you put it following the law following the succession plan something that the trump administration has regularly tried to avoid to put this deputy career civil servant in his in in Berman's place. Strauss seems like a good i. I in why? Henry, why would why would? Why would the president or the attorney general want to appoint someone who has never been a prosecutor before to to that role? Someone who was a golfing buddy of the president's but someone who's not been in a position like that all what would be the motivation behind that I? Really don't know what the motivation would be on that, but I do think the question is in a district like the southern district of New York..

"five dollars" Discussed on How The Heck Are We Gonna Get Along

"Regularly scheduled programing with a multi partisan panel to answer questions like where is president trump's focus at the moment. What exactly is bill bar up to and who might be the next casualty in the current wave of culture cancellations? Limassol returns to the pod this week. He's a frequent contributor on networks like MSNBC AND CNBC and he's the justice correspondent for the Nation Henry Olsen is an author and a columnist for the Washington Post and been dominant is a political contributor for multiple TV networks and the publisher of the federalist. They're here to help us answer those questions, and hopefully also answer. How the heck are! We GonNA get along. How Everyone Ellie Henry, been. Harry all this evening. Air Conditioning, we. You're right. Where are you right now? Ali I'm in Westchester which is usually by but. My. Office has air conditioned wheeler. Well I am I. It was I was just telling the producers a little bit ago, it was like in the sixties and seventies last week, and it is ninety eight ninety seven today, and the humidity is like walking through superior. It's awful and been you're in DC yeah. yes, and we. We're actually okay. Today I'm I'm sure that Henry's here as well but. It's actually pretty nice outside. Elliott just would tell you. I noticed that you were writing about Naomi row. You should You should think Senator Josh Holly, for the fact that she will never be a supreme court nominee. Don't have anything to worry about on that front. Are you sure about? What happened? What happened Ellie? Naomi just a dinner thing today. On the. Bill Bar. Michael Flynn saying at her opinion is just it's. It's classic row it's. I I've I've had known as the most dangerous justice that trump's appointed since she got her nomination, today was just another another day. Will Henry can yes so feel me and what happened? What was her reasoning behind throwing this out because I have to admit I'll just throw it out here right now. I have turned the TV news off because it's just driving me crazy, so read a little bit about it, but. Been Tell me what happened with this? Why did why did she determined that? This case could be thrown out? I'm not actually surprised by her. Decision but it's one of these systems. One of the prompts with this situation is. You're faced with a situation where? Who would you ask in the Department of Justice as a substitute? Try this case given their. Their attitude is the way that it is I'm not that surprised, but I am wondering if Sullivan will find a different way to sort of extend this out a little bit. Maybe kick the can and see if they have somebody different a few months from now to continue this the politics of this is pretty intense. Might take claims that the real issue with this is that it's an unprecedented move where she's issued a decision about how judge Sullivan has to rule on his motion before Judge Sullivan rules on his motion. Right like that. That's a lot of the the the the crazy comes in for me that there's an argument I wouldn't agree with it. There's an argument that Judge Sullivan could've refused the motion to dismiss essentially, and then row could have come over the top and set like actually. No, you have to like Brantley there. Lots of different ways. There's lots of different ways. This could have been skin but for her. To have this decision before Sullivan is even allowed to make his ruling on his motion that he simply asked at this point for more briefing and more evidence from that's. That's the that's the. That's the only row special sauce. Right that that's the different thing about trump judges from you know regular Republican judges that I would generally disagree with, but but as I said you should, you should write a thank you note to Josh. Holly because he you know in his process of of of holding her up during confirmation, you know gotten admission of her from her that she is personally pro choice and and doesn't think has opinions on abortion that are not in line. With the base of the Party and that means that she'll never be a Republican nominee this court, so you should be grateful for that. Does, is it? Is it just a Naomi row issue though I mean. Henry is the the Justice Department in general has had quite a week. It's not just this Michael Flynn case, but but the this Friday night massacre on on last. Friday I don't know if we're calling it a firing, a a pressuring to resign Irma from the from the. Federal Attorney in the Southern District of New York. What what exactly is going on at the justice? Department right now. It seems as if though there really aren't again. own my bias. I'm on the left, but it seems as if there really are not many rules being followed There's not much order going on. What what's your take on? What happened on Friday with with Attorney General Bar. Henry. Announcing the resignation of Permanent York. Well And the these US attorney serve the at the pleasure of the president. You Know Bremen had no. Right to the job and Apparently there was some wires crosses to weather. He was going along with what. Attorney General are later made clear in his letter was ongoing discussions. but I. Don't think we know why he was fired. Because that's ultimately what did. but I just think there has been so much attempt to paint the president and his team lawless regardless of the facts that. I would take what was said. Without strong evidence with very big grain of salt. Do you think that? What do you think that the investigations that were being undertaken in the southern district? Do you think that some of the cases? Some of the the convictions that he? Achieved, in the southern district had anything to do with why the president was unhappy with him, and if so is that, is that a reason my point is i. don't think anybody knows I. Think there's a lot of people on the left who want to believe that, but I don't think anybody knows what the reason is i. think that we should generally presume good faith on behalf of people from both parties, unless demonstrated otherwise, but that doesn't seem to be a something that is on offer for people in. Straight I would I would just suggest is that I think that that decision on the part of Berman that back and forth the Wall Street Journal, reported about his unwillingness to sign onto that letter, criticizing Bill de Blasio for treating Orthodox, Jewish communities different than protesters I mean..

No okay so if you're from if you went to the show I'm super sorry though there were two so you could have gone to one or the other Oh right right right right right right. Oh we probably just lost two chances to release a live show at some point pillow okay so this is actually story. I'm actually very excited that you did Wisconsin. Sorry 'cause this is one that I've I had thought I had covered. It and I was so disappointed because I was like I don't remember covering it but like it's so familiar and I I really WanNa talk about it again. Then I remembered aided did it at a live show so you tell it but there's this podcast that I've been listening to. It's like like so good. It's called the clearing. I don't know if you guys have heard of this. It's called the clearing and it's about Edward Wayne Edwards Okay and this story is freaking freaking bananas. Yes it is wild and Wayne Edwards. Yes okay and it's the story of the Wisconsin Sweetheart murder so Edward. Wayne Edwards in general was a serial killer but in general in general he was also a good guy he was yeah he brought out ahead kind is that's how we got you got green green is he also brought a lot of tourism town. Oh he knew where to get a good squirt gun of deluded poison daddy he was a Ho- Daddy. If you ever seen one uh-huh when he's the sweetheart murderer yeah sounds like he's daddy so Edwin Edwards listen. This is what you've you've been missing out on this whole time the poor two and a half years we could hide the embarrassing ways without we move. I'm like I'm not wearing a bra cover that feeling my like yeah. Oh God no one's going to be like she wearing brought no. I'm not wearing a Bra. Okay sorry back. Everyone go look at Christine's brawlers chef stopping pervert okay so so daddy you're my down yeah okay so this is the story of Edwin Edwards and I covered specifically Wisconsin sweetheart borders but he was prolific throughout the country so okay it kind of that's why I did it in Madison. So a lot of this information in was found from Rolling Stone bustled Wisconsin State Journal people dot Com true crime diary of course murder Pedia and this podcast the clearing which is like very very very very well done and the guy actually talks to his daughter I'll explain it but it's a very good podcast so you should listen to all right so Edwards Edward Wayne Edwards was born in Akron Ohio which is near Cleveland and as a young boy he had quite a traumatic past. He witnessed his mother other die by suicide when he was very young shit okay he had no one to raise him so he was sent to an orphanage where he was abused physically and emotionally now. We're coming in hot on the story. We I always do not even a good sentence to warm imagine this in a comedy club. Isn't this fun and this is a everyone's like oh your your job sounds great. It's like Oh we have have to somehow be funny about some really horrific yeah yeah we have to make you have an enjoyable time yeah. What are you not entertained or with a significant other? You dragged who's like why would you do this to me. I don't understand so you send it to an orphanage. He was eventually sent to Juvie but he was allowed to leave in order conjoined the Marines so he joined the Marines immediately went awol and was dishonorably discharged for that reason he spent his twenties and thirties traveling around the mid west doing odd jobs such as a ship docker handyman in a vacuum retailer Audrey down a Lotta quite odd in nineteen fifty five Edwards escaped from jail and accurate and drifted around the country robbing gas stations when he needed money quickly landing him on the FBI's most wanted list in one thousand nine hundred sixty one crack so it wasn't just the robberies it was he had broken out of Jail L. It was that like Oh yeah you now. You can see how many times throughout my story so I really the truth comes out how boring I am I on at least twenty times. It's very so you're GONNA get used to it. We should start doing like a counter in. I'm not used to it. It makes me feel very incompetent to be fair. I think it's psychological because for the first year that we told stories by the time Christine always told told her story when we both had day jobs. It was like eleven at night so I think I just still my brain thinks like Oh time to go to sleep. Tell me really soothing mm story not about murder before I get a path well here. It is anyway I apologize in advance for everyone maggots to watch me on finally someone else gets to witness actually sleepy Kinda a guy yeah okay so data so he is on the FBI's most wanted list. He later wrote that he never disguised his appearance during his crimes times because he wanted to be famous. That's a good guy that's rough. Well it worked and he was pretty quickly arrested in Atlanta and sent to jail five years later he was released on parole having been fully rehabilitated doubtful end of story the end. What are those the end? I wish got if every story ended like that. Story ended ended five minutes in and happily no murder to notable robberies rehabilitations all better yeah he married a woman named K had five children and felt so so change so radically changed. I radically believe believe him that he wrote a book and the book was called Metamorphosis of a criminal Oh my God in which he discussed his past life of crime and has changed ways he also began touring the country speaking about his reformed ways and how he the light and has changed to be a better person. I'd helped he was also very attractive and charming so he was just very good at like manipulating people into who thinking he was truthful when he told these kinds of stories he quickly gained the trust of his community he convinced America. That was a changed man to the point. Let's hear it to do the point was here. So do you remember this game. Show called to tell the truth. it's the show where three people attempt to convince panel of celebrity judges that they are the central central character who like either has weird occupation or has done something really wild and the other two are impostors so there's two actors and the actual the person and it's it's it's like from catch me. If you can like the guy the ACA yeah and so he'll be like oh I you know forged all these checks and then the other to try to convince no. I'm the one who did that is okay and they have to convince the judges and then the judge will vote on who they think is actually. It's all coming back yeah. It's I loved show personally anyway. He was on the show. Oh yeah could he win so three P okay did it so there are three people on the show. There's actually a version of on ABC now. I don't know as of like March or whenever we did the show but I haven't watched it. My favorite episode of to tell the truth is to tell the truth. I'm Edward Wayne Edwards. Oh reformed criminal okay. Yes Edwards was honest freaking show. The episode is on Youtube so I highly recommend watching it. It is Sensor Albert here. Could it be listening yeah. Click here to what she's getting. Everyone listening to just the Audio version is like Oh holy shit us my new normal because yeah oh yeah it's on Youtube. Please finish are upset. I because I want to tell you what he did before you watch it because it's so much more disturbing if oh shit after so half the panel voted for him they said actually they picked him because he seemed the least likely read like whitest this guy on the panel and so the least likely to be an ex con and the most all American seeming contestant so they thought oh they're trying to trick us. That's him because the other two was was like this like Italian swath they they were like oh he looks more like a criminal like it was very sensitive I mean what are we like the sixties what what yours is the sixties sixties. Okay thank. Maybe the seventy S I mean I think it was the seventy s at this point. Yes so interesting. There's been two different types of that. We know of two murderers on game shows because no no Kala Rodney Rodney alka Al Calla Al Calla yeah he was dating gamers on the Bait and game and he was a fucking psycho and he looked like he looked like someone I would not want other contestants. Were like yet. He was freaking cre- play backstage to however this guy was like so charming and all American that they were like well. There's no way he's incredible. Vote was ever a criminal how he'd really changed okay so he is on the show. He's doing this tour book tour like he's just this kind of American hero cut to a few years later surprise he's back in jail on arson charges and he kind of lived the rest of his life. like in and out of jail kept to himself but now we're we're GONNA super fast forward to two thousand nine. Okay Edwards has long been out of jail. He's in his seventy S. He's living back in Akron Ohio. One of his daughters April global asking April Bellagio Balasko the LAS blasios. Let's go with that. It sounds cool April. She's now a forty eight year. Old Mother of three. The kids are grown. She decides you know what I'm finally going to act on some nagging suspicions I have had my whole life though my dad and about my childhood will tyranny so this is what that other podcasts about like her journey in discovering all this and what happened and it's so well done but so April she eh she always knew growing up that something was off about her dad. She said he had an obsession with the Zodiac killer with murders to the point that he would like sit them down and make them come watch all of these videos and crime things really gruesome graphic stuff when they were like toddlers like force them to watch was like sickly fascinated fascinated the other weird thing is I would move the family from city to city every few months. They number stayed in the city for more than a couple of interest at a time. That's pretty interesting yeah. She knew something something was off but she had kind of repressed a lot of it didn't have a happy childhood whatsoever and so she had repressed a lot of it but overtime she just was like there's this nagging feeling. I'm living with breath. I kind of want to see if there's anything to this that I can yeah process so one day so what she does. She goes your members. Several of the small towns she lived in so she starts going back like she's like I know we lived there in nineteen seventy eight or whatever it may be in the small town in the fall so she goes back to like the news articles like archives from that fall of nineteen seventy eight and she starts realizing there are murders happening in those towns during during the time periods of they gotta live there got it. She stumbles upon a news report of a recently reopened cold-case and that was a cold case of the Wisconsin Wisconsin sweetheart murders which was a cold case in a town that she had lived in the town of called watertown Wisconsin and the murders had taken place in nineteen eighty so on Saturday night August Ninth Nineteen Eighty Timothy Hack and his girlfriend Kelly drew both nineteen disappeared after a wedding reception in town the families as reported them missing the following day and one of the largest searches in Wisconsin history was organized a few days after the disappearance police began to find disturbing things on the side of the road they found Kelly's pants which had been cut from ankle to groin they found pieces of rope strange pieces of yellow tubing and more bits of torn clothing thing but tubing freaks me out three months later squirrel hunters stumbled upon Kelly's body in the woods and Timothy's was one hundred feet away and Kelly had been raped and Timothy had been stabbed and strangled and after Kelly was assaulted she was also stabbed and strangled to death. Oh my God so leads went in all different directions. This was like horrific. This is a very small town. This was just so shocking and jarring it was like this young couple and very close closest commute close knit community as the years went by investigators had no answers. The case went cold the family's just kind of lived with like we're never going to find out what happened so that was in nineteen eighteen eighty so we're back in two thousand nine April is searching through the archives of all these places.

"Let's let's try this. Remember that time I said we don't know what's going to come out of my mouth. Yes we're going to try that now because this is a story from a few months ago and I haven't haven't even tried reading the notes to fill myself in. Doesn't that sound good. Doesn't that sound like a really interesting ride. I hope this is the first episode and they're like wow. This is. Someone's first. There's Youtube episode. Oh God what is going on hi. We're in that's why we drink welcome to our podcast on TV. It's how do we explain. There's milkshakes and ghost lemons involved. There were milkshakes one point there was wine at one point in this to be milkshake facts. The remember that lasted eight episodes go back to the very early ones when we were as awkward as this video thing hope and there she sorry and you'll see what bulk facts were. It didn't work out. It's funny you can always tell who's new to the show because they say I have a fanatic fact for you and it's like Oh bets I ran into into episodes. You'll realize that that's a no go kaput all right so this is my live show from Wisconsin Ooh and I actually we just had our facebook live episode that we did this weekend last weekend. Yes feud few days ago and someone actually mentioned the story. I forgot that I'd covered it yeah. They like requested it yeah. They were like Oh. You should do this story and I was like Oh. I already have notes for that so I'm going to be that we're going to Salt Lake and clearly aren't prepared fully. We decided we would use some old notes that everyone has since forgotten about unless you're from Wisconsin yeah well. Was it madison listener Milwaukee. Here's the thing I can't tell you that I don't know Oh okay. I thought you meant you can't tell me for like oh no. I can't tell you because I didn't well I also you didn't know which one it was i. I didn't know which one wants to pick the random Wisconsin show could be it could be a mix and match also the shows. Were really small their true true if you have her. I'm sorry but one of those Wisconsin shows the shore. You flashed everyone right okay well. I thought that was GONNA be contained in the comedy club. Now what goes on Youtube stews on Youtube took apparently after the first Madison Show Oh God oh God and tell the story. It wasn't necessarily that you moon everyone's like you sunny. Everyone much worse Yeah Evoke Texan me the next morning and was like hey. I don't even like ten minutes before we left for the next day show and was like I'm so sorry. I don't really know how to tell you. This is really awkward and I was like what happened. She's GonNa quit I accidentally fired or I don't know and she was like so. You're wearing those leggings yesterday and you kind of had a camel toe and everyone could see it and i. I didn't know how to tell you and you guys just Kinda did the whole thing and nobody said anything and it was like she goes. I just wanted to let you know I like didn't want to tell you but in case you wanted to wear those leggings things again and again. Can you imagine being harassed an odd. I mean this is what happens. When Eva isn't around this would probably be a thousand times better? God imagine having to go tell my boss that they have a camel toe in front of four hundred people and so then the next day of course I'm like so fucking awkward that instead of being like okay just wear jeans and be normal. Guess what I did to half of you who came to the show yesterday you saw my sunnyside is like like you're so ashamed. You can't keep it in God you just have to keep talking about it and that's why it keeps happening here and lex emily to bring it up really a lot and yeah so here we are so so anyway. This is not the story of Christine's Campbell Tokes just got that would be quite a horror story though so here's a different one. This is a Krypton which apparently everyone there seemed to to already know so I did a good job in picking on part of Wisconsin good this is in the town of Rheinland. Okay Yeah Yeah Okay See. Doesn't this sound confident already. This is the story of the Hodak. ooh So this I remember being one of my favor Cryptos I've done I remember being wildly ridiculous so let's find out together excited. I was also sick during the show so I think I was in state so I'm not even gonna I mean between maybe that's why those liking also. The duct tape is falling. Do you guys Oh look at that. Change up here for for those who listening to audio the camera pointed at us was slowly just falling outing and so Christine had to readjust but I'm sure that will have to happen again okay the whole Dag of Rheinland Hodak is spelled H. O. D. G. in case you're interested and apparently it is known as quote the terror of the Pine Forest poorest of Northern Wisconsin Ooh so the story's main character which is something I literally wrote in these notes is a land surveyor named Eugene Shepherd Sheppard. Okay okay so far. I'm doing good protagonist so Eugene was born on March twenty second eighteen fifty four so he's an aries that's great and and he was born in Old Fort Howard which is now known as Green Bay and I'm sure everyone freaked out and we're also wearing a cheese ties Salako. Oh that was a good day. You're right. I was wearing a cheese bowtie and end and understand that it had to do sports so that was questionable. Now I just saw m's a packer fan like what's the packer I just wanted to. I just want my cheese Bowtie two his family moved to New London and he left school in sixth grade to work on his father's farm in his dad died when he was twelve so he ended up being hired on as a farmhand in other towns okay so by the time he was he was out of school. He was just working on farms at sixteen he became came a timber apprentice in the North Woods and he learned to be a timber cruiser which apparently is another phrase for land looker which is another phrase for for checking out land got it so he would apparently I wrote it down because I knew I'd forget if I ever went back to these notes. Thank you passed him so land looker they calculate the value of how much lumber is actually in an area based on how many trees were there so then go literally look at the land count all the trees and they say uh-huh you could get this much lumber out of it or this much timber out of it and that this much money you would make okay. That sounds like a cool job to job so in eighteen eighty two rheinlander oh so the town is not rheinland apparently surrender. I'm stupid. Kids start. I must have delayed are at some point editing this. This was the dumbest thing we've ever decide to to make video content and not say was you mean is currently the dumbest thing we've are ever doing. Utopia never do anything stupid ever again yeah. Let's hope so in eighteen eighty two rheinlander was looking for timber and lumber workers and Eugene moved there permanently so he moved to Rheinlander in eighteen ninety three he was working in the woods outside of Rylander and he comes across his first Ho Dag so in the near North newspaper reports and there are other stories that also reported on this. This is how the dog is described because I guess this made the papers. Why wasn't this is how the dog was described? It looks like it's quite a long description so bear with me but the more detail the better maybe okay maybe according to several articles the Hodak looks like and has a large head of a frog could start concert the grinning face of giant elephant a thick short legs a dragon's body the back of a dinosaur and a long tail with spears at the end. I'm not done before you make a comment. spikes all the way down its entire length of its body with a fistful of needle sharp pointed spears at the end of his tail fangs that would rival a sabertooth tiger and could rip out the belly of the biggest bear. Apparently it has horns that are growing from its temples with large fangs and green is that's nice pretty short black green hair. I don't know what makes it and its back is covered with spikes. It has tusks noodle sharp claws and it smells apparently like quote buzzard meat meet and skunk perfume favorite apparently it's known to breathe fire and smoke it eats water snakes oxen mud turtles and mainly only white bulldogs what that's not very nice. You know. We need a whiteboard so I can just sketch this. Wait a minute if we're talking visuals. That isn't genius idea gain we what are the what are the youtuber say put it in the comments. Oh yeah leave your comment below and then we'll put a cool little aero and then also humiliated subscribe. I am twenty seven. Okay okay like what you see. Okay which you don't finish that Senate until finish don't like what you see. Please just leave. Don't leave a comment because sticks and stones except the opposite of accept our bones are constantly being shattered excelled. You always hurt me turned us worse than any sort of mystical gem night so if you're not saying nice things just don't talk to us okay so everything he's described so fire reminds me of when Michael Scott is in that he's trying to describe like like the bottom of a plot to push with the face of an immigrant or something it sounds kind of a little Michael Scott Okay okay unlike apparently he's known to be quote a terrible brute with the strength of an ox the veracity of a bear and the cunning of Fox. Oh no no it was also rumoured that the hog was the resurrection of a Dead Oxen in the lumber industry which is what was an ox working in was he'll land looker and he was resurrected. That is the weirder part yeah. Maybe I misunderstood. He was called the fiercest strangest most terrifying terrifying monster ever to set this earth to let the Pearl it is going on here. It's very tough. In the chart sensationalized yellow journalism yellowed there it is there it is the others have described as reclusive woodland creature and misunderstood by many which is what I call Christine some interesting. I call you the first part Oh just a reclusive woodland the monster that eats bears or whatever cutting of Fox thank you sure skunk and the buzzard me thank you. I was hoping that was next. Put that on my tinder profile they say my tombstone door. I've already planned out your to anyway just say Christine. Did it hoops oops. I knew I shouldn't have done that. Okay so basically he's a seven foot long lizard like beast covered in spikes at the end of the day. I tried to just make it easy for everyone got a big weird lizard and maybe has an elephant face AH grinning ear so anyway that is Eugene apparently stumbled upon and to tell the tale so when Eugene gene and his workers came across this tag. They tried everything to capture it. I don't know why you don't try everything to get away. Get Away but apparently they tried to capture it. So when it fought back they ended up retaliating again this time bringing hunting dogs and guns they not just guns like rifles but the also brought squirt guns of poison water which I don't know how they found that first of all and the squirt gun so fast to tour exist back then. I don't know how it must have. Maybe I don't know super soaker. I don't think the super soaker they might just like the tiny little pistol ones just like like a like a clown gun all about that I would guess yeah. I imagine that's where the squirt gun came from like a photo gun. I also yeah I also like that. It's poisoned. He's in watertown like full of poison. It's like specifically poisoned walk. It's just alluded poison. Oh my so none of actually got the Hodak to stay away so they kept fighting thing and they ended up resorting to dynamite because the diluted poison wasn't enough and so they blew it up is blew up a picture. Uh of the remains of the Ho- Dag was actually sent to the media and released to the public L. My and three years later in eighteen ninety six eugene came across the Hodak I again in a totally different one so they thought they blew up the only one in existence it ended up being one of many. There's more to speak of MHM Eugene found one sleeping in a cave so keep finding these things specifically as nobody else seeing that she will flo liberty thirty so eugene rallies the other men together to help him drag it into a large pit to they can capture it. Let him take his his nap. Listen maybe sleeps as deep as me. He bigger probably get this so to do so to bring to drag him into the pit. They tied a sponge soaked in chloroform to a long pole and then fed it through the cave to get to him so he it'd be like pressed right up against his little luper has little nose and he'd breathe it in and he would just kind of fall asleep more unconscious. Wait okay. Oh Do you question why. Why would I ask a question? Let's hear it though I mean I've a lot but but where are they getting all of these that's one they got poisoned water. They got squirt guns in the eighteen ninety s if got chloroform like long Poles full of CCR sponge polls with chloroform quite elaborate I mean I guess we have a camera came rotate duct tape to a tripod so that was this was just their version potentially a loaf of bread somewhere involved so I mean I guess which judge but at this time the town rheinlander was trying to bring in more people and keep the town alive and Eugene decided I'm sorry so the town one to bring more people so and so they ended up to create tourism they created the loop.

Of course, they say, and it's because well, the reason we don't want this is because you're actually going to be harming consumers. Oh, please guys how you harm consumers.

Oh, yeah. Why would they want this to change? They're making billions of dollars because I would also think and there's nothing wrong with making that kind of money.

Wouldn't you see an opportunity to undercut your competition by advertising how much less you're charging per pill? Then this other company. Yes. Isn't there an opportunity there? My fear is then it's going.
