Conversation with Megan Alba

"Hello and welcome to episode fifty five today. I have joining me. Megan alba director account director with the silver telegram and content curators and we're gonna be talking about storytelling for brands. In how important it is in. This is kind of our first go at a video. Excuse us for the weirdness of we're just trying to get used to a new format. But yeah i megan how are you doing. I'm excited. yeah no. I'm excited as well. It's nice to have another person on talking about the same things that i'm talking about. So i'll megan has been working with this over telegram for like four years. I think there some something like that If you can just move closer so we can hear you a little bit better. That would begin sorry. I know you're like all relaxed in your green chair. They're new green chair. Having a conversation of green chair. conversations will take a little bite off of Jada pinkett smith with her correct table so so storytelling for brand is pretty important especially when we're talking about public relations in building our narratives to tell the media so we wanted to talk about like kind of some key tips on how to develop a really good story and story line and you're gonna do this many times when you're a startup or any kind of brand really so you're going do over and over and over again and typically we usually have three or four storylines going at the same time. Obviously when we're pitching to the medium but i would love to get your feedback on getting started and how to create a story line and you know how some people can start thinking about stories in what they should be including. So how how can we get started. When we're developing our storylines or how do we do it. I guess so. Before we jump into that what i will say is that you know. A lot of our clients come to us and say well. I'm not a storyteller in the truth. Is that everyone's a storyteller. And i like to say everyone has a story worth sharing. You're telling a story every day. What we're doing is helping you to learn how to manage that. Narrative had recognizing managed that narrative in your life. And so what we're teaching today can apply for Obviously across marketing and pr. But you know personally as well your own personal brand yeah so when we talk about storytelling really the first thing to start with the main idea and to and to build it out from there so sometimes the best thing you can do is to get back to basics. You know when you're in the middle of launching a product when you're in the middle of starting a new brand starting a new service. There's so many different things going on that. Oftentimes you feel pulled in many directions and sometimes you can lose sight of really the heart of the matter you can lose sight of the nugget that spurred all of this to begin with so what i recommend. A lot of times is go back to that. May ninety a what is it. What problem are you trying to solve. What issue where you're trying to address. What was the the main idea. The golden nugget. The lightbulb moment that popped into your head and you said i should do xyz to solve this problem. Go back to that main idea and that's going to be the heart of your storytelling point. I think a lot of people get like lost in like the verbs ray like this is the cutting edge or next generation or whatever and they they love to like hear that what they're doing is innovative or whatever you know like we have all those like pr terms that we get sucked into. And i agree with you completely like starting with the main idea making sure it like. I always tell people you know if you have a personal or brand mission statement to make sure it like lines up with that and it's like super direct and i think that's the best that is the best place to start so that you know you're always staying true to the voice of the company and like the goals of it rather than getting lost in saying that you are the next generation or innovation or all these fun. You know buzzwords that we like to throw out there so that's a great point great so like we start with the main idea we start fine tuning it What's next so. I think that it's important to remember throughout to keep it simple. That's something that's really important a lot of times like you mentioned people get into this and they're trying to throw around all these buzzwords flashy terms and at its heart. Your communications should be simple. Someone needs to be able to remember what you said As a matter of fact you said it several times in your book. Call your grandma and tell her. Tell her what you just wrote down. Give her your elevator pitch. And if grandma can't understand you need to go back to back to to the editing table again now so you want to do your research though once you have that main idea do your research and see what other people are saying about that same topic see what your competitors are saying. See what people are saying about similar products. If you're if you're the first or a new type of brand. What are people saying about similar products from there. You can find your unique value proposition from there. You can find those words that not everybody else's using and from there you can see what other people are saying that maybe it's confusing the conversation and you can cut through that clutter. You can fix it while you're building your on staff. Yep that's the else's communication problems and be the solution to it.

"President Biden signing several executive orders overturning key policies created during the Trump administration. President Biden is making climate changing major part of his administration. Part of that American foreign policy angle is that the U. S is now going back into the Paris climate agreement. This is all part of the administration's effort to prioritize climate and making a major issue for this administration. There is also an expectation of much stronger environmental regulations, reversing much of what the Trump administration has done over the past four years. And there is also another move on this one, and that is reversing the approval of a permit to allow the Keystone Pipeline. The U. S.

President Biden calls for unity in Inauguration Day message

"Ronn Owens simply put. I feel so much better about this country today better than I felt in the last four years. It's not the president Biden is on evident by any means. But he is genuine. His calls for unity and respect our sincere and much needed. I think you made an excellent gesture yesterday when he promised he would be president for all Americans, saying, I will fight his hard for those who didn't support me as those who did. What a breath of fresh air Unlike Trump, Biden doesn't approach politics is a blood sport. As he said in his inaugural address. Politics doesn't have to be a raging fire, destroying everything in its path. Every disagreement doesn't have to be cause for total war. Watching the laying of the wreath at the tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Yesterday, I was struck by the unity exemplified by the presence of three of the living. Former presidents Obama, Bush and Clinton joined Biden and Vice President Harris for the traditional Inauguration day ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery, of course, have been political disagreements between them over the years, but it's important to note how they've risen above them and shown the United for the country. Last night, I interviewed Kate Anderson Brower, author of Team of five, the President's Club in the age of Trump. She did in depth research and the most exclusive club in the world. Exploring how former presidents stay in touch with one another, and at times offer their advice to their successors. She made it clear that no matter what Trump wouldn't be a member after leaving office And it wouldn't be because of his political beliefs, but his lack of character it somehow, you know that when he finishes his term or terms, Joe Biden will be

"Steps to tackle This pandemic, including establishing a covert testing board developing guidelines to safely reopen schools and taking steps to try to overcome the disproportionate impact of this pandemic On people of color. The new president wasted no time getting to work yesterday, signing in order to mandate masks on all federal lands and taking stuff to undo some of President Trump's most controversial moves by rejoining Paris climate accord and undoing that so called Muslim travel ban. Now the new president can do a lot on his own. But that big plan of his that big ticket item that nearly $2 trillion stimulus bill to provide some relief that is going to take Congressional action and will test his promise to unite a divided Washington and he is telling his White House staff and appointees and I quote, point blank. If you're ever working with me, and I hear you treat another colleague with disrespect to talk down to anyone, I promise you, I will fire you on the spot, adding that that kind of decency has been lacking over the last four years in the White House.

It's part of an aggressive new effort to control the Corona virus pandemic. CBS White House and political correspondent Ed O'Keefe tells us what's on the agenda today.

Divided administration plans to set up vaccine centers of stadiums and community centers and to deploy federal personnel to help administer shots. Overall, Mr Biden is expected to sign 10 executive orders today that, among other things, require mask wearing on planes and trains and establish a health equity task force focused on racial disparities. Mr Biden and the staff got straight to work. On day one. I thought state of Nation days, no time to waste get to work immediately into redecorated Oval Office. The new president signed 17 other executive orders and actions mostly rolling back President Trump's signature policies they end the so called Muslim travel Ban canceled the Keystone XL pipeline permit. And hold funding for the southern border wall. The U. S will also rejoin the Paris climate accord. These air just executive actions. They are important, but we're gonna need legislation for Bother things we're gonna do. The administration is focused on setting a new tone. We're gonna be judged whether or not we restored integrity, the competency. This government and White House press secretary Jen Psaki said there would be a return to regular briefings when the president asked me to serve in this role. We talked about the importance of bringing truth and transparency back to the briefing room.

Biden administration gets to work on reversing Trump-era immigration policies

"The pandemic is his top priority than immigration appears to be bite. And second, he signed several executive actions on immigration yesterday and assault on President Trump's most controversial policies and by then sent a bill to Congress that offers a pathway to citizenship for more than 10 million immigrants who are in this country illegally. NPR's John Burnett covers immigration and is on the line with us from Austin. Good morning, John. Morning, Noel so many new White House initiatives on immigration in less than 24 hours. Yeah, it's mammoth. It's a complete repudiation of Donald Trump's crackdown on immigration. Biden signed executive actions to throw out the so called Muslim travel ban to Temple to temporarily halt construction of the border wall for the next 100 days to rein in ice agents and stop certain deportations and to strengthen Dhaka. That's the Obama era program that shields the dreamers from deportation. These air immigrants who were brought here illegally as Children, and many have now become essential workers. Trump tried to cancel doctor but the Supreme Court kept the program alive. Okay, So those are the executive actions. And then there's the Biden Bill. How ambitious is it? Uh, well. In the most dramatic step, Biden was to create a roadmap to citizenship for more than 10 million undocumented immigrants. This is the big immigration reform that some people have been clamoring for for decades. Guidance bill says an undocumented immigrant could become an American in eight years if they pass background checks, pay their taxes and complete a citizenship test. Also, Biden wants to allow Maura refugees into the US who are fleeing war and natural disasters. Lawmakers, as you point out, have been fighting over immigration reform for decades. So what kind of chance does this have of passing in Congress? Yeah, it's going to be a tough sell Noel among the immigration hawks in this tightly divided Congress. They're leery that Biden wants to dismantle all those tough border controls that Trump imposed. There's not much in here about border security. Biden wants his Homeland Security Department to expand surveillance technology as an alternative to those steel and concrete barriers. Here's Mark Krikorian of the Center for Immigration Studies. They favor less immigration to the U. S. It's a radical departure from all previous amnesty plants because it has no enforcement in it, You know, so I actually think realistically. There's no way to send it could ever pass this. Okay? He wants less immigration. How are immigrant rights advocates responding to this? Well, they're downright giddy. I mean, yesterday they came in from the cold for four years. They bemoaned one trump anti immigrant policy after the next There were more than 400 of them and all, but it's a new day. Here's Grayson Martinez process. She's an undocumented dreamer herself and head of the group United We dream. This is the most progressive legalization bill in history.

Apple reportedly switched 2M units of production from iPhone 12 mini to Pro

"Apple reportedly switched to million units of production from iphone. Twelve mini to parole We've been talking about this. We kind of already knew it. The fact that maybe out the gate the mini model. Not so hot not as hot as maybe originally imagined or maybe we just have too many iphones to choose from in twenty twenty twenty twenty but it certainly is starting to look very clear that the models people want more of our either the regular iphone twelve or one of the pro models and in this case. They've gone ahead and as far as the report is concerned. They have decided to change over some of the production line to help out with pro supply and move away from the mini supply. That apparently nobody wants far fewer people want than potentially was originally imagined. Does this mean it's a bad phone. Does this mean it will never turn itself around no not necessarily. It's still cheapest of the bunch if you don't include older models or the iphone. Se maybe over. Time through a variety of incentives. Maybe they find some some places to put those devices but another another consideration here is the different markets in which apple moves these phones. You may be sitting there in your own specific market thinking. This is the whole world like you will. You might wake up on a canadian morning and just say to yourself. Well this is how most people live and no they don't will all right get it together. I'm usually wrong. Yeah yeah exactly. Yeah as we were talking about prior to the episode running here. Yes and so different. Markets have have different needs in different wants and even if there was a push for a nostalgic smaller one handed smartphone in one market. That doesn't necessarily mean it's the case elsewhere. For example in china they think that the lower end models of iphone. Twelve are performing better than in the us. They estimate that shipments grew forty seven percent year over year in the december quarter reaching a new eighteen month. High of twenty percent market share driven in large part by adoption of the iphone twelve which it captured the most iphone installed base share of any iphone launched in china over the past four years. So you see in china. They want the stock iphone twelve. Oh i'm sure they want some of the pros to but you would've thought hey if they're interested in the lower end iphone twelve. Maybe they might go for the mini but apparently not as much as originally mentioned we continue to believe. The iphone will outperform expectations in the december quarter as the mix shift to hire an iphone. Twelve models is a tailwind revenue growth iphone. Twelve pro league times remain extended far beyond any model. La- launched in the past four years at ten days so when when pro originally launch actually a little hard to get your hands on one in certain markets and the the mini thing. I don't know will they can it. That's really what the question comes down to. The u continuing the mini. Can you support it at a lowered at a lower demand. Does it start to make a comeback at some point or do you digit completely with the next model and just say to yourself. People are gravitating towards the other ones is not worth our our hassle or are headache. I personally like as many options as possible. But i can also understand if it doesn't fit into your efficiency plans and the expense of keeping those other lines on a phone that you know isn't i mean it's not even just the production lines it's also the designers and everything else involved in keeping an extra model but we've talked about this in the past. We just have more evidence here to suggest that the mini was not exactly the hit. That at least apple expected in the short term

An Excerpt from the book Hungry for Happiness by Samantha Skelly

"An excerpt from the book. Hungry for happiness by samantha skelly. I used to avoid uncertainty at all costs increase structures and rules that kept me in a constant state of predictability in my relationships career finances man. Of course my body and food. If i had a plan i felt safe when things stayed predictable. All's able to relax but this is life and life rarely goes according to plan and when things went off the rails meigs -iety would go into overdrive. You know those moments when you carefully craft what you want to happen in the reality just blows up in your face those moments when no matter how hard you white knuckle life goes in the opposite direction does moments would send me really during my diet depression back when my relationships with food and my body were the most broken i would journal out my day hour by hour for four years. The day looked similar to this with slight variations depending on what fad diet. Testing out five thirty. Am wake up six o'clock workout. Seven o'clock shower and get ready. Eight o'clock eat breakfast. Three hundred calories. Nine o'clock start work. Ten thirty eat snack. One hundred calories noon eat lunch. Three hundred calories one o'clock workout. Three o'clock eat snack. One hundred calories six o'clock dinner three hundred calories eight o'clock drinks slimming tea in nine pm. Bed this was my life pre scheduled with my calories pre decided. I was obsessed with certainty. I didn't know how to survive without it. I left no room to breathe known for the universe to infuse his magic certainty in my life felt safe but he was strangling me. There were times when my biology would overcome. Willpower out ended binge eating thousands of calories worth of chocolate covered almonds only days when i didn't eat a morsel of food to make up for it. When we are addicted to certainty we lose the ability to create influence in step into opportunity. We have to leave space for the magic of the universe comes room and to step out of our own way releasing the addiction to structure so we can create with the universe not fight. It's flow. you'll be so much more powerful and fulfilled we step into the flow and let yourself be guided from within your body. Not the confines of your mind. I a transformative deepest level. We need to understand that creating space slowdown. Be still and listen to. The depth of our truth is essential. We can't unlock our intuition. When we are addicted to certainty was only able to feel a deep state of peace freedom and creation. When i said jesus take the wheel and gave over my control because the truth is external. Safety is an illusion no matter how much we plan. It's never guaranteed inner safety. On the other hand is a state that can be cultivated by shifting energy and focus and operating from a single principle. That everything is happening for you in perfect divine timing. This sounds simple and it is but it's not easy path. Back home to my body was less path and more twisting turning roller coaster. Track the commitment to heal. Was there but still there were moments. When i felt like making zero progress a road the ups and downs and switch backs and loops for years. My only intention to be compassionate to myself during this journey back into my body. I found that the way through this journey was to follow the guidance of my intuition at any point during our waking hours. We have what i call the three pillars of connection. Our thoughts are motions and our intuition the majority of spent all our time within our thoughts and our emotions but this is a disordered and unbalanced sense of reality like a stool with two legs or logical. Mind is always trying to keep us safe and it does a good job but it can also over function being so vigilant that prevents us from living with our whole cells

Trump defends record and says "we will be back" in farewell speech

"President President Trump Trump has has bid bid farewell farewell to to the the nation nation in in a a pre pre recorded recorded address. address. I I want want you you to to know know that that the the movement movement we we started started is is only only just just beginning. beginning. There's There's never been anything like it. The belief that a nation must serve its citizens will not dwindle, but instead only grow stronger by the day with us right now. ABC NEWS White House correspondent Karen Travers Karen Can you sum up with the tone of that dress was Hey, You know this was a surprise that he did it this way. But I guess we shouldn't be surprised because we haven't seen the president in a week. You know, he hasn't had any public appearances. We had tweeted to hurt. He was going to do a series of events last week to highlight his administration's accomplishments, and most presidents typically do a farewell speech or a farewell press conference. Instead, the president released this 20 minute video yesterday that does all of that, but does it in his way? I think it was notable that the president that part you just played. They're saying that the movement we started is only just beginning. Is that a nod to a potential 2024 run? You know, I have to say that to talk about that has died down considerably since the events at the Capitol in January. 6 You know, we were talking a couple weeks ago about a potential rally for the president today that he would leave the White House, go to Florida and hold a rally and maybe tease or announced the next presidential run. That is not happening right now, but I think the message from the president was you know we're still in this and he will keep fighting for you. How does he do that now, without the obvious platforms that he's had social media and the White House podium, That's not quite clear. But this was the president also laying out what he says where his accomplishments Over the last four years on being a true outsider, occupying the White House and creating what he called the greatest political movement of our time. He's making some news as he leaves with dozens of pardons and commutations. Where there any surprises there. Steve Bannon, I think was one that had been talked about, but it wasn't clear he was going to do it.

We like you to know that. There's hundreds of episodes that we've been producing over the last four years on with the have everything from great interviews with a i thought leaders and insights into the market trends and adoption in public and private sectors. And actually will be doing one of those insights into the mayor market trends on this podcast episode but also conversations on key topics on what's happening with a today and in the future so over our past for years almost two hundred episodes we've interviewed some incredible influencers. So we encourage you to go back and listen to a lot of these episodes. We have episodes interviewing folks. Ben kurzweil of singularity net and the sofia robot colin angle from founder viral anthony griffin. Yano from dun and bradstreet eager. Perry switch from lincoln. Suzanne can't the former us federal cio. The hose arrietta ceo former cio of the us department of health and human services. Lord tim clement. Jones keep people at organizations large and small and lots more so Definitely subscribe to the today podcast so that you can basically here are insights on the technology markets and how different industries are applying emerging concepts machine learning. And just in general long story short if you want to understand how. Ai is being put into practice today. Which is why this is called a today and where it's heading. Make sure to subscribe day today. On your favorite podcast provider and listen to our hundreds of episodes. Yes so as ron mentioned today we wanted to spend some time talking about our twenty twenty. One a. i. Market predictions and forecasts at the beginning of every year. We always you know. Take a step back and look at what happens over the past year and where we things going moving forward so acog melinda in case this is your podcast or you're just starting to listen to us. We're an ai. Focused research education and advisory firm and we really focus on market intelligence. We cover all over twenty thousand vendors in the space so we have a great pulse of what's going on and we work with both public and private sector companies so we really have a holistic view of the space so we wanted to spend some time today reflecting back on what we're seeing in the market and then making some predictions and forecasts about where the market will go in twenty twenty one so one of the first predictions that we have. These are not in any sort of ranking order. They're just how he laid out this podcast. So we have that worldwide adoption of artificial intelligence and machine learning. We've seen it growing at a very high rate and were predicting that this is not going to stop anytime soon. I mean so. There's a lot of indications that show that we are moving towards much more use of what we call the seven patterns of ai and we will link to them in the show notes but one of the things about is that it is a fairly generic term general term which corresponds to making machines intelligent and doing the things that humans would otherwise. Do you ask people as to what they're specifically doing. It's usually gonna be one or more of these seven pattern so it might be a recognition system or it could be a conversational system or could be something doing predictive analytics or trying to find patterns or anomalies or it could be trying to develop the hyper personal profile. The hyper personalization profile of you. So that it can no to tailor things better for your needs or it could be an autonomous system systems that are meant to operate with little or no human interaction. Or perhaps we're doing something we're trying to have. Machines find the solution to something you goal driven systems and when you talk about it from that perspective it's like yeah chat bots are growing recognition. Systems are growing the use of machine learning for patterns and anomaly detection as well as predictive analytics. that's growing. You know maybe hyper personalization. Maybe that that's been a little bit slower to grow. We are definitely seeing a lot. More autonomous stuff whether or not. They're all entirely successful a whole other story. But we are and we're seeing of course a lot more use of even goal driven systems and part of the reason why we say this is that there is some fud in the market Other analyst firms in particular are saying that they're seeing some large number of data science projects that are failing. You know gardner. Says eighty seven percent of data. Science projects failed to deliver on their for their executive sponsors and seventy percent of machine. Learning models lose relevancy overtime. Well these are. There is some truth to that. Yes models do have what's called drift and then later what we're going to talk about in this. Podcast is the growth of technology area technology market with an ai called l. Ops that specifically addresses this area of models overtime lose their relevancy. But that's just like the thing let's like saying well. I built an app in one thousand nine hundred ninety six therefore i need to update it in the year. Two thousand three two thousand eighteen thousand thirteen two thousand eighteen. Yeah yes. that's what. Technology and technology doesn't standstill. Say all the fact that you have to update it means. It's not like the fact that you have to up it means you're actually using it and the needs for that. Continue to grow. If you didn't care you just throw it away so

"I think look at. You mentioned those gaps If you checked another gap. I am sure if you check the media big tech hollywood And the pray you know the the press and all these other institutions would find an even bigger gap because they were uniformly against trump and used their powers to remember the new york. Times said nowhere objectivity While trump's around so i'm not sure what this knee means. I think that had trump spent his time in georgia. Not just say. I'm gonna do one rally before and then use two thirds of that rally to complain about how he'd been treated. I think he could've won georgia and then that would have put a different gloss on his exit Now we don't know. What are those policies at kim outlined in the utah. We don't know what's going to survive. And what what isn't he could have made a case. I think that Before the the the capital riots and everything that his was was a disruptive But a necessary disruptive one term presidency and set things up for For better down the future. But we don't know that yet because we don't know what joe biden's going to do what his legacy is gonna do all presidents Enter with optimism and so forth in some some leaf. Barry defeated so We need some historical perspective to see what's going to happen. It could look very different for years from now. Depending on how successful the administration is all right.

"You know that has an effect on jobs and income here. So trade to me was a big opportunity to casualty of populism. That trade is somehow a bad thing. When i don't know any country that is cut off from trade or so forth that is prospering. To the contrary it's the countries that are most open to trade where ordinary people prosper. The other issue. I wanted to bring up was immigration which probably trump's signature issue on the two thousand sixteen campaign trail and there. It seems to me that he ran up against the limits of presidential power I mean recall that last year there was a thirty five day government shutdown the longest in history and the issue there was that trump wanted billions of dollars for his wall on the us mexico border which did not end up getting and then he declared a national emergency Him to shift money around and we have some miles of new wall but we also have Most of the miles that have been built are replacing existing structures. And so kim. I wonder if the people who were immigration voters in twenty sixty. If if you know the people who that's what brought them to the trump camp if they feel for years later like there's been progress made or the issue's been solved i think they do. I think they know that the issue hasn't been salt and even those hardcore trump supporters. Who voted for him on this issue. Always kind of understood. I mean many of them maybe did believe in the wall but i think they understood that it was more metaphorical and that is. That's why i would argue having spoken to them. They would argue that it was successful because what they cared about was it trumpcare it And i think that this is this gets at times. I have not agreed with all of donald trump's even many donald trump's policies have to do with immigration and the border but one of the reasons donald trump was elected is because there were a significant number of americans who felt that adequate attention has simply not been paid And that this is how you end up with eleven million undocumented people in the country And you know which we have noted is not an ideal situation either now. We would argue the way you handle. That is yeah. You do need some sort of border security. You can't have a sovereign nation without borders But then you set up some kind of long term immigration Deal policy to allow people to come here to work legally or to go back home to be here on a short term visas. There are all kinds of really innovative ideas out there For one reason or another that never happened over the past four years i think in part of the trump administration did come in. I think floating ideas for some kind of a deal..

"I think that's true with donald trump. And i think for people who supported a lot of his policy agenda and the good things that he did These were always disappointing and a distraction from the real work and the worst thing about them is. Most of them were unnecessary. I mean you mentioned one thing about them attacking good people after. They've left the white house. Well sometimes there are bad people that leave the white house that you have to fire. And when i was in the bush white house there were some of those people they left but the the effort was to do it in a way that spared their feelings right not to humiliate them. It's very million to have to leave a white house job or big job or a cabinet office and so your goal was to make it as least embarrassing and painful as possible. Because you don't want them coming back you so trump created enemies that he didn't need didn't need to have by by doing a lot of that stuff and it's it's not a coincidence that in the end it was these trump supporters that did more damage to than anyone on the left wing. You know when they arrived at the capitol. I wanna be clear. I'm not saying that. Every trump supporter is an insurrectionist or white premises as Some democrats are trying to suggest. But those people who considered himself supporters they. They really did more harm than anyone else. And what flowed from all this volatility. Has i think it's true to say political failure. I mean the twenty two thousand eighteen election's republicans lost the suburbs a lost the house of representatives. And it's true that the the president's party often gets a drubbing in the mid terms then The idea of second trump term and then earlier this month. Kim republicans lost the senate after those two georgia runoffs which to me look like they were eminently. Winnable races lost because of these these post-election antics by the president and now that's going to enable democrats to start dismantling A lot of the stuff we talked about it in the first half of the show. Well i agree with you on georgia. I think the overall results from the two thousand twenty election or a little bit more mixed What was very clear. Is that while. There seemed to be a lot of americans who were tired as it were of The trump presidency And simply that the nonstop craziness of it. And i would just like to add agree with everything you and bill have said about the president and his reaction to things and how it often made it worse but i don't think you can talk about that in the craziness of the trump administration over trump era without mentioning the media Which you know just spiraled all of this up into craziness Or democrats house. Democrats in particular. And they're you know they're not investigations and impeachment and the nonstop. You know where. We the whole russia collusion hoax. Which you know. Saddle sat on top of this administration. The whole time There were two sides to the craziness. trump bears his responsibility but a lot of our institutions and his opponents. Do as well to now. A lot of americans decided they were tired of that That seemed to play into the president's defeat at the election electoral pulse at the same time. Nancy pelosi lost a lot of seats in the house and despite the fact that republicans had far more people up for reelection They had you know as many as a dozen seats at one. Point in the senate that were considered at risk They held the senate right up until those george races I think the president did his party no favours on the way out by focusing on the election results for as long as he did And really.

"Had died in february and four years later kim You know. The trump administration has confirmed not just a a replacement for him that shares his view of textual ism and originalism but also to additional justices Brooke cavanaugh and amy coney barrett who are going to put their prints on american law for a long time right and in doing so created for the first time in a long time a court that does not have a five four split but rather there are six three conservatives. it's going to change the entire dynamic of the court. Because john roberts achieve justice is no longer going to be that swing vote. He has in recent years cared very much about the reputation of his court and at times. People like us have criticize him to the extent. He's done that in that. We thought he has sacrificed good law. And some good moments in order to to try to to shelter the court as it were from headlines criticisms that. I think we could argue. He's going to get no matter what he does. But that's gonna change now. Probably not just in terms of the way the court rules but the cases it's willing to take on and hopefully it will be a little bit more about handling some of these longstanding issues for instance you have to do with the second amendment that it's shied from over the years i'm to other one other thing i would just point out about. All of these justices ann at a little chance to have a shout out to an early member of the trump administration. That was first general. Counsel don mcgann. He had a big role in of these initial appointments. And i remember talking to him. And in addition to to making sure he judges that were Textualist mentioned There was a huge emphasis on getting younger candidates. Ones that would indeed be on the courts for many decades to come but also ones that were experienced experts in administrative law And that rounds. Back to this whole argument we were talking about before about democrats tendencies to try to do everything through rulemaking rather than going through the legislature These judges guys like neil gorsuch have been Pretty skeptical of that particular things like the chevron doctrine which says you have to just give deference to administrative agencies and. I think that that could have any norma's impact in years to come on the size of the federal government and its powers so let's switch to the other side of the ledger. What went awry and It seems to me that some of the biggest failures of the past four years have been related to trump the person and his volatility And just thinking. Back the bombshell tweets the staff turnover and then kicking. Good people as they go out the door those off the cuff covid briefings Including that moment where. The president was musing about the medical possibilities of disinfectants. The strange courtship of kim jong hoon And then finally build the the post-election meltdown telling his fans that he wanted to landslide And then culminating in that riot at the capitol on january six. Yeah angry entirely brought. I mean look. He's a little like nixon. When people said nixon was paranoid enemies were after him. They were after him but he didn't. He didn't help himself by giving them the ammunition to go after them..

James Comey and Truth in Government

"Joe klein joins us now to talk about a new book. From james comey. It's called saving justice truth. Transparency and trust. Joe thanks for being here screwed to be with you. All right joe. You don't need any introduction but for those who are not familiar with. Joey is a former writer for the new yorker former columnist for time magazine author of many many books including perhaps most famously when that did not appear with his byline primary colors And a follow up novel running meat and this week he reviews for us at james. Comey's second book so the obvious question. I have to ask i is. How does this book differ from his previous book. Well it doesn't differ very much at all actually except for one thing. He rehearses all of the confrontations he had with donald trump in both books but in the second book he places that in the context of the need for truth and transparency in government. Which i think is a valuable thing. The book is the repetition of the first book but it's not an insignificant repetition because of the the context that he now placed it so the first book higher loyalty was kind of hybrid memoir both from his earlier days as a prosecutor in the department of justice and then for his brief period at the doj under trump but it was also kind of manifesto about justice. It feels like on the surface this new book saving justice is kind of exactly the same thing. Well yeah it is. It is the same thing and it's obviously something that cody feels very strongly about. But i think you know the important thing here is his view of justice and his view of the fbi remember he was the fbi director. Whom trump fired because he allowed the russian investigation continue which resulted after he was fired in the hiring. A bob muller as special investigator but komi has a very distinctive view of justice. And i and its ecclesiastical he sees the members of the justice department all the way down to assisted. Da's out in the country as being part of a sacred priesthood sworn to absolute honesty to complete probity to conducting the business in entirely facts based and nonpartisan manner and you can see how that might conflict with donald trump right. Does he talk about what's happened at the department of justice since his departure. He doesn't talk about that all that much except to say that it has been corrupted by trump trump spent the last four years trying to make it into a partisan weapon to go after his enemies in. Kobe is appalled by that. One of the things that you do in your review is draw the distinctions between trump's view of justice and company's point of view. Is that something that komi himself dozen. The boker was that you. He doesn't to a certain extent. But i teased it out a little bit from me. The most important thing that is kind of gone overlooked about trump if anything can be said to have been overlooked is his view of the world which came out in the second debate with joe biden where he said only low. Iq refugees showed up for their refugee hearings in other words. The smart ones absconded. Only stupid people abide by the laws. Smart people get around it. Only stupid people pay off their creditors. Smart people stiffen and that is donald trump's operating philosophy and unfortunately it seems to be the operating philosophy a lot of his followers and that stands in direct contravention of commes operating philosophy. Which is you gotta tell the truth. I don't think you could find two more temperamentally opposite. People trump and komi. But what's interesting at least in the little bit of this book that i read it seems is a slight shift in tone from the last book i mean in part it seems like he's he is trying to draw contrast he opens up the book with donald trump sort of leaning back in his chair and telling him that putin showed off to him apparently about russia having the best prostitutes in the world. And he's telling that james comey. Yeah that would not go over very well. Comas is a religious catholic and And as i said he's religious about the notion of justice and truth. I mean he tells a story about his early days as a us district attorney where he was working a drug case and he had a government informant named vinny and it turned out that they put vinnie in the witness protection program and vinnie took the opportunity to get married. The problem is that he was also married in his former life which meant he was now a bigamist which is a crime and komi says that it was his absolute responsibility. Even though the bigamy had nothing to do with the drug case in question to tell the other side the defendant's lawyers that vinnie was a bigamist. And that shows you the degree to which komi will go in the defense of the truth almost to the point of myopia. I

"Republican party norms which were ordered an updated. You might say by the necessities of the cold war as the cold. War has faded. You're seeing a regression to the mean in the republican party which trump is not the cause of but merely an example of and so the old republicanism. Which would stood for a much more modest foreign policy for limits on immigration gauging immigration. By the capacity to americanize the immigrants limited taxes a constitutional conservatism constitutional limits on the legislature. All of these things including tariffs and a more trade policy and a national economic policy driven by national interests. All of this is very traditional in the republican party. And what you're saying Despite the excited crowd is of and others is to me really. Not that threatening accepted is threatening to the The washington consensus both in domestic and foreign policy as it has existed for the past generation. At least yasha we have two very different conceptions of reality and of the american constitution both in america and on this panel and appropriately enough. You wrote a piece in two thousand. Nineteen republicans don't understand democrats. Democrats don't understand. Republicans talking about that perception gaps that makes both sides unable to empathize with each other. How do you reconcile the argument. That charles just made namely that republicans are resurrecting the original constitution against on principle assaults by progressives and arguments like the one that you made repeatedly over the past four years including in two thousand. Sixteen where you talked about the interlocking reasons why our confidence in the system is naive and ways that our system of checks and balances has relatively few resources to stop an authoritarian president from violating the constitution. So like the hard question. I'm asking you so important as i. How do you reconcile the completely different views. One of the charleston. You have articulated. And how would you bridge this gap for our viewers. Well look i think. I would distinguish between two very different things. I think by some high level of education going on him. So one is that undoubtedly democrats and republicans have trouble understanding each other some very interesting public opinion research by more in common in this but essentially showed that when you ask democrats what kind of believes republicans have you know they caricature they think republicans would hate immigrants That they don't think any racial discrimination in the country and so on actually most republicans have reggie positive attitudes towards immigrants Immigration system at puffy recognized that the ongoing forms of racial injustice at the other way round. We asked republicans. About what kind of us democrats have. you know. They would faint Supporters who make excuses for political violence than on proud to be american for example. Actually a huge majority of democrats proud to be american project. Things like antiques. Oh so there is definitely sort of mutual incomprehension going on that also exists mole philosophical level. So i don't disagree of childhood as different notions of constitution The drive each side that leads to certain misunderstandings. And disagreements i think one example of this was when senator mike said but in fact amount has not aiming to democracy. It's a republican. You can have different views about how helpful clever applying bet is but it was spotted by a lot of left leaning media as a senator Sort of open admitting but he's anti-democratic but he wants to destroy the actual system was something like bad though simply misunderstanding of what he had said at Example of of of that kind of clash between different readings of the constitution and different vocabulary leading to a little bit of hyperventilation. So i don't disagree with that exists now was very putting out folk is that as ad said what. Donald trump has been up to for glass for years in what he has been up to in these past weeks should be a crying affront to either the to conception of constitution whether you believe we live in a democracy public whether you saying that the anti-democratic of account majoritarian elements of the constitution. Like the senate a perfectly appropriate whether you think that's problematic. I've you should believe in the peaceful transfer of power. I have a way you should believe that it's very important not to undermine the trust the people have in the election system. I've away you should think that a sitting president should not say that those massive voter fraud by being able to offer any of evidence of for that feces. I've away you should say that. The president going on about how his opponent should be locked up committing crimes. In an unsubstantiated way is exactly the kind of behavior doomed Republics that had been attempted before foundation of ours and that the founding fathers was so worried about when they road not just the constitution but when we modeled a set of behaviors in a set of new orleans. They hoped would put us on a more stable pop so to yes. We have different notions of Operating with yes. That's a lot of mutual Incomprehension but to spin that into an excuse for the kind of behavior we have seen from the outgoing president of last week's takes a little bit of by david as someone who favors. gop senate oppose president trump. your perhaps uniquely well situated to help translate each side to the other so put us in the shoes of the seventy percent of republicans who believe that the election was rigged and also the republican senators. Who are supporting the president's claiming and then as you think about the way forward. I am always struck by how difficult it is to persuade people who disagree with you about policy at the same time. It is possible to have civil debates about the meaning of the constitution as we find every day at the constitution center host precisely debates between liberals and conservatives. Is that one way that both sides can debate productively basically not not just setting the policy disagreements aside and focusing on the constitutional disagreements or do you have other suggestions for productive discussion moving forward. Well it's it's frankly hard. It's as a practical basis on a mass scale. It's really hard you know through the big sort. We increasingly live around people of like mind as we live around. People of like mind reinforcer owned by season. We grow more extreme. We channel our interests into the media. That reinforces all of those trends. So you know the way. I've put it to people who i live in a precinct that went almost seventy percent for for trump. I think in the last in in two thousand sixteen. I lived in more rural precinct and it went seventy two percent for trump. My friends my neighbors. They support trump. And one thing that i say.

"Hasim, what is down trump done to model democracy as something is an attractive force so that allies of Vladimir Putin's like the guy in Belarus under pressure right now you'll some heat. This is what Putin wants. He wants a discredited demoralized distracted America that is not setting a democratic exempt. Yeah. I mean the the moral authority that we I think squandered on. Election Day. I had Oslo. Bali, who is a friend of mine? Who teaches at UCLA was I think my first guest when I when I started hosting the show and she was November tenth or eleventh or something, and she said the pox Americana is over and you know we need to take a breath and say what are our commitments now as as far as individuals as citizens and what are kind of professional commitments or? Political commitments now that that has dissolved and I think. Pox Americana just a great phrase to revive their because we know we lost a lot on that day and in the last four years, but it's hard to put our fingers on it. Exactly. Right like like we didn't have we didn't have harmony in the homeland even in two thousand fifteen you know the idea that we're polarized you know tell that to the birth irs hoop out this a long time or the truth irs or whoever else and crisco batch, and then the idea that we are, you know that we've lost moral authority I mean I think you know at least the Islamic world thought that we were morally bankrupt back then and And I think Europe was suspicious of US although you know it's hard to say. But in any case, pox Americana is something that was just an article of faith with with us as we came of age you and me and does seem to be kind of gone now. So I want to just talk about the dovetailing of your own professional and political commitments since two thousand sixteen. So maybe just take us back to election night. Did it instantly on you? As it did on Professor Bali that you you would have to make some changes and you'd have to find out where to be most effective, and also what were you most afraid of? It did and. The way I'd up kind of the version of what you said which I agree with is I always try to explain to Americans as someone who travels a lot. It's not the fact that Donald Trump is president that is so problematic. It's the fact that we elected Donald trump president and that's something that can never be undone and it it calls into question everything about American leadership in the world because. We have this this awesome power the world has kind of not only because of our military but the world is kind of generally looked to us to set the direction even if they don't like our policies and they hated the Iraq war and they they blame for the financial crisis. Yeah. But in a way, trump is worse because it just showed such a profound irresponsibility. That we would let someone like that get to the highest most powerful office in the history of the world in that election night and I I knew I'd seen the kind of radicalization that had taken place in the Republican..

"What was part of? It's interesting that trump basically gave life to every criticism of me and Obama like everything they said about the Iran deal everything about Paris everything's, of Cuba, opening will they got to do whatever they wanted right and so so you know the trump presidency is the manifestation of by worst nightmare sense like think of your worst troll in life becomes the president states right and they're. Very Determined I. Mean Not all my trolls I. Think are determined. They're not fixated on me enough that they would want to just reverse everything I've gone from the color of my drapes to you know my hairstyle but because of trump's fixation on Obama as his white whale, he did want to reverse everything. So don't do stupid shit becomes. Let's see what is it again reversing it do stupid Shit as possible. Exactly. Max Out on the stupid shit and then also reverse the Iran deal because it has Obama's name on it and so on I agree with you. If you know I think I tweeted one time like one thing we have learned from this time have been the virtues of the Iran deal now that we're without it that was accomplishing a lot in. The region since since two thousand sixteen did you expect the deal to to really follow park has had some support on the right and I think at the very beginning of trump you might have thought he's got his eye focused on the southern border or these other things that he'd really run on an inspite of the Michael Flynn commitment to stamping out radical Islamic terrorism they. Maybe wouldn't do this take away the Iran deal. How did that evolve for you when you saw must really going down well so when when Flynn got ousted after fifteen days, there was about a year when McMaster was the national skirt advisor Mattis's at defense were they were clearly doing everything they could to save the Iran deal. They didn't want the risk of leaving which by the way was ironic because mattis is critical of the Rondo on came out it just shows you when you're. Actually empower, you might prefer to have an arms control agreement place. Yeah. So I actually thought there was a fighting chance of the thing could survive, but to trump, it was interesting how the Iran deal was. So central to just kind of their narrative about Obama and his foreign policy and his weakness in his coddling of quote unquote radical Islam. You could tell the trump wasn't going to give it up and then John Bolton became national skirt advisor. The thing is toast. Of. What's been interesting in watching it play out is the arguments that we made that they called dishonest at the time were essentially that it's either this deal or the Iranians advanced their program. If you leave the deal, you're going to strengthen the hardliners in Iran and you're going to risk war and. Literally all those all arguments that they said were so dishonest and said, I can constructed a totally fake echo chamber to make those arguments, but they've all happened. Iran is restarted its nuclear program. The hardliners are clearly in charge there..

Yeah yellows do that. So here's here's a couple of things you can do as we shut this episode down. This felt really good i. just let me just say that it felt a little like. Didn't feel quite so natural. Conversation like there's something in me that link. Okay. Now I've got turn my radio voice when I put headphones on and microphones in front of my face funny thing is I'm much more comfortable that it's different like if we're just sitting on the couch having a deep conversation or laying in our bed before we go to sleep at night like it's just those are the moments where I wish we could do this like just put the headphones on in the microphone right there they think we.

"But like I think we now would explain it because I mean, it was a lot like that but is more of a legalistic lake. There were rules that were to be followed based on biblical principles. made out has also military. So I think that that kind of had a little bit to play with it like it was very strict. I grew up in a very strict house like I mean not so strict where like I couldn't wear pants strict. You definitely wore pants I definitely wear pants. I meant. What attracted me to you is the fact that you didn't wear pants. Open. I'm kidding oh getting Others upon him. Gosh. No but it was it was a strict house. So I mean like we didn't have to wear dresses all the time. We didn't have to cover our heads how some women do like. It was like you said, is legalistic like we look down on people who who didn't go to church and I mean like that. That was. At the time I didn't know any different. You know that was just that was how we grew up. All I knew is that I wasn't allowed to wear makeup outside the house. I didn't. I wasn't allowed to do this. I wasn't allowed to listen to that kind of music I wasn't. You know there were a lot of things that I just I couldn't do because we went to church you know and. It was a lot I mean. I don't know Bash on my on my dad. My family that was non. Early. GROWING UP I saw lot of bill. In not not just my family but the families that we were around. Yeah I had One of my one of my friends growing up her dad was bill. And her mom. Thought that being submissive meant that she just had to listen to every single thing that her husband said and she had no opinion. She. She was not a person and I don't agree with that I feel like that is very demeaning that that post that you shared it's very demeaning toward women meaning that women only serve one function and that's either for you to get off for you to get fed or for your kids to be taken care of. And I. I don't agree with that. And that was I mean not saying that you did. Not Get a right hand that was that was. It was it was meant to be funny. And and generally the depot right. But the generally those those those questions are used in a humorous way. I don't want anybody to take offense to it. I mean here's the thing I don't see anything wrong with I mean, the Bible says to be submissive to your husband. But. What. What how I feel is you know what? I have no problem being submissive to you. But? For me to be submissive to you, there needs to be respect to give him back and that that did not pose to me as he was being respectful to his wife rain. So. It's just like. With anything if you don't give respect, you're not going to get it back and I think that maybe that's his problem. The he he's not getting any respect from his wife but you WANNA know why bill because you're not giving respect. You're not showing your wife that she is loved more than anything else. You're not showing her that that you know she is prized in your is above everybody else you're just expecting from her and. obviously, I feel that that's not right well, and part of the reason I brought it up because I was I remember I was going through Yahoo and looking for questions that we could be funny and. and..

Really, probably last year the year before that, they wanted to sell the house that we live in right now right because there's just too much of a burden to have to pay and just giving taking care of the roof knees redone and things like that, and we seriously thought about buying it but it only has two bedrooms right now with two girls chew bedrooms would put us out of a bedroom. Because this, they're they're at the point where like you were saying they, they have different interests and. Different maturity levels, right. Well, that puts them at odds quite a bit..

Spill See I think that's why see that's why we should have had kids at home. Well, I think that's why might have the last asking to be home. So so there's no contract there like we can treat these kids however we want. I don't know So yeah. Grace is ten now. Grace yes and not greasy. Gracie she'll probably always be my gracie.

No, it's not as good as clements though you said, you didn't like your last name about a week ago I have problems with my last. But Hey look at it.
