Running 'Low-Risk' Races During COVID-19

"I'm more excited to be announcing at racist right now Than i am to actually running. I mean i'm excited to be running. But yeah i think i've mentioned on here before that. I started working with millennium running which they're putting on. Great low. Risk events in new hampshire Time trial start for the runners masks required start and finish You're literally never with a group of people. You're pretty much running by yourself. Because a runner off excuse me around goes off every ten seconds You drop your mask as soon as you start running and then as soon as you get to the finish. Someone's there waiting to hand you a new one. It's just really well done. And i wish that everyone could see these events because when i say oh i'm working a race. Obviously people are like racist. Shouldn't be happening like trust me. I am in that club like still nothing should be happening. I've been in that club for a full year now. But i do wish that everyone could see these events and see the way that they're done because i really believe they can be a model for other race companies. That just really need racist happening so that they can stay in business like i feel everyone on the virtual race fatigue. I've done virtual races for the sole purpose of supporting the people putting them on and the the company's putting them on i think that's important in a way to show our support. But i get it that people are fatigued. And so all that you why it's called ramblings right all this to say Millennium runnings doing an amazing job. I wish that everyone could somehow see. I mean maybe. I'll just like do a bunch of stories at the next event because they are leading the charge in a new format of racing. I really think that can. It can be really successful. not huge races. You know it would take if the new york city marathon did this. With fifty thousand runners. It would take like nine days for a runner. It'll start every ten seconds so it's obviously not feasible with the mass participation races but For a couple of hundred people. And i also for a long time downplayed like the value of needing stuff like this and everyone's like oh for my mental health. I need to get out. And i'm like for your physical health. You need to stay home. And now i'm like no it's been a year and i think people need some things and this is a great low risk and i very intentionally say low risk and not safe because who knows what's actually safe but i think they're doing a great job so all that a very excited to be announcing their races at the start and finish lines and just to get to be out. There runners like no one cares that it's on a mass participation start knowing cares that they're running by themselves the whole time or ten seconds in front of and behind the next runner. There's happy to be out there. And that's like what. I think we could all use right

Is the Republican Party Radicalizing Against Democracy With Voting Bills?

Is the Republican Party Radicalizing Against Democracy With Voting Bills?

"Good evening from new york. I'm chris hayes. As the biden administration the democratic congress and the country as a whole trying to claw our way out of an unprecedented national crises the republican party coast to coast has found its mission for the year. Twenty twenty one make it harder for americans to vote right now. We're on track to see the largest rescue bill. In recent memory signed into law by president biden. This week we would provide direct relief to americans billions for vaccination programs money to reopen schools. Keep restaurants open and not a single republican either house or the senate has voted for it instead after losing the popular vote in seven of the last eight presidential elections going all the way back to nineteen ninety. Two republicans are laser focused on restricting. Voting accents brennan centers tracking all the bills aimed at restricting access to the polls list includes two hundred fifty three bills introduced pre filed carryover this year in forty three states in georgia of course already notorious for having absurdly long lines to vote with residents waiting up to eleven hours to cast their ballots fall. Republican governor brian camp has waged a long battle to make the voting process. More difficult in his previous. Role is georgia's secretary state. He oversaw the closing polling places in the purging of hundreds of thousands of registered voters polls. Thanks in part to the efforts to stacey abrams and other activists on the ground registering hundreds of thousands of new voters. Turn out in two thousand and twenty in georgia in the election was unbelievably high smashing records. And of course also helping to repel joe biden. The white house georgia's election last november was also just about the most scrutinized and scrutinize audited of any state in the nation. Remember this they counted the votes three times in that state. they did a hand recount of five million ballots. There is zero doubt whatsoever. The results in georgia were accurate and more georgians than ever before me. Their voices heard so what did state republicans do just yesterday. The state senate passed a bill limiting. No excuse absentee voting which is one point three million georgians including four hundred and fifty thousand. Republicans voted in two thousand and twenty just last week. Republicans at the state house passed a sweeping piece of legislation cutting weekend days from early voting restricting. The use of drop boxes adding new requirements for absentee voting restricting. The amount of time election officials have to send out mail ballots and voters have to return them and prohibiting the distribution of food and water to voters waiting. Mine fact making it a misdemeanor handing out food or drink to waiting in the longest lines in the country. That's all because there are any actual problems with the administration of elections in georgia. It's because the republicans lost it's because they lost and they think these things will make it easier for them to win next time but keep in mind. This is not just happening in georgia which is of course the center of a lot of attention as swing state with the closest election last cycle. Take a look at how crazy things are in iowa not a state where republicans disappointing results last year. Okay in fact i will. Republicans did great in twenty twenty flipped to house. Seats held onto a third. And you know what loads of islands voted breaking the all time general election turnout record and they had pretty expansive voter. Access including early voting absentee voting and same day registration and in. I woke him up again. All of that. Work in republicans favor. Donald trump carried the state joni ernst reelected. They've flipped to houses. So what is the problem. Well the problem is at the. Republican party is radicalizing against democracy almost as a guiding principle. They fear voter access. They want to shut it down. They are using the cover of the big lie. The wildly insidious and poisonous lie. The election was stolen propagated by the former president and his party and written media to just make it harder to vote and not only harder for specifically disfavored groups like african americans are democrats. Were generally although these measures will disproportionately hurt them. It's major part of all this but also just horrid vote and get all like as a kind of ideological fixation. There are a lot of weight. Republicans i will. Who will have a hard time voting. Thanks the measure signed into law today by republican governor kim reynolds new law cuts the states early voting period down by nine days. It tightens the timeline. For when absentee ballots must be received. In order to be counted it strips county auditors of much of their discretion and running elections including establishing satellite in-person early voting sites which are useful and mailing absentee ballot request forms voters. Who didn't specifically asked for one. It limits who can return. Voters absentee ballot. And get this. It closes the polls at our earlier on election day. Just think about that so it would that for a second. What conceivable argument is there to close the polls in our earlier like the fraudsters show up in the last hour of the day to do their fraud. No no there is no argument. There is not even of an argument.

Mixed at who's A writer photographer and editor of air sport magazine that comes from sport aircraft association australia which is gao organization. Kathy's written for a number of publications but recently she's written a book titled australian. Women pilots has sub subservient amazing true stories of women in the air. Kathy welcome to the airplane gigs. Podcast hang smack. Thanks for having me now. Really astute and longtime listeners may actually remember kathy's name or it might sound a little bit familiar. That's because well she's australia and she has been known to hang out with A few of our australian friends from plane crazy down under grant and steve. So it's really exciting to have kathy. This is a an very interesting very amazing book. And we're going to start off talking with kathy and then come back to the news after that. So let's let's get right into it. A kathy in the book you tell us the story of i believe ten women that all have really fascinating remarkable stories. And we'll talk a little bit about how this came together and in how you found these stories but to give our listeners. An idea of the kinds of stories that we can find in this book. Maybe let's talk a little bit about the first australian woman to fly around the world in a single engine airplane solo. Maybe give us a brief version of gabby story. Thank he Gabby cannot in non nine nine was a single mother of two children. And she had this burning desire to fly around the world for probably some personal reasons. Various reasons Who knows what caused pushes somebody to do these things and she drew back on. A mortgage bought a single engine. Saratoga had kitted out with long range fuel tanks and everything that she could afford and think that she needed borrowed some survival gear and hit it off in august nineteen eighty-nine. She intended to be gone for three days and she came back. Nine thousand nine days later so it was quite a remarkable fates and it's some was a long trip. Yeah yeah and she more or less followed. Amelia earhart erhart's route but as to her motivation. It seems like she was doing it for the the love of flying in. Not for some promotional purpose or to seek notoriety particularly. It seemed like it was kind of a humble flight. She had absolutely no desire for the publicity other than the fact that the publicity provided sponsorship. So that was the only reason she got tangled up with that side of it but became a big thing and because the country was pretty gripped by this housewife fit. Who's at forty is some. Lift the kids with some friends some reliable friends and taken off around the world and She was intrigued by merely earhart actually and she loved immediately hop story. She'd been flying across the pacific with a guy named jim. Hazelton who's well known. Australian aviator and when i go to majority or the marshall islands he said this is about where we think. Amelia earhart went missing and it really got gebbie thinking again about it. And she dived into any books she can find on earhart and other female aviators when she got back and that really sped or on say. Someone gets a good idea but forgetting to do that trip. I think it was about finding soft confidence. And she just felt she really had to do something for herself to take control of her life and you know how it can be being a wife and a mother

It's Ole Gone Wrong: Manchester United lose to Sheffield United

"United losing at home missing the chance to go top of the table defeated by bottom of the table. Sheffield united registering. Just second win of the season craig. I wanted to this happen. Possession but but really never trouble chef united gold out many times. Keep with enough to make that. Many saves chef united defended brilliantly. I mean phil. Jackie ohka failty. I think as robot the years bedtime and recent games is gone back to the tried and trusted in midfield which was from flake and norwood. Those guys have been up to save for parts of the season and that was the fulcrum of of their team last year. And in fact. I said i go back to basics here. This was the chef united. We saw last year scrapping and fighting and defend in trying to feed off scraps the other side and united was sloppy. I mean you look at the second goal it was. I think was go on ahead. So wasn't wasn't buck. I thank you boys was bought. Another joke guzman is so much time in the bulks on two occasions was bar and it was on the players within five yards new-look to and there were sloppy so when nine days doesn't have a sparkling game or russia doesn't have a sparkling game. This united say just lacks the guy that we saw from manchester city yesterday. How do you explain that. Defending the second goal. Steve is really weird. Well you just think in some ways when you play against a team league sheffield united. Who bottom of the league. You've pegged them back and you kind of you kind of think it's just going to happen. You're just going to go on and get the one up and so you drop certainly level of intensity because as far as quality it wasn't really there for united but the intensity was there to get equalizer and i think once they did that just a little drop. And that's what happens you know. Nobody takes the initiative. Nobody you know certainly usually when somebody has the ball at the feet in the box. You'd expect to not just one but two defenders could be gone in either thrown overboard in the line or just making a good solid challenge of get close enough. That didn't happen and that to me is just took a little bit easier after the equalizer thinking the all that to do is just see to score and we see today. Why manchester united win. The title. Worldwide tipped to win the league but craig was talking about. They had fantastic possession but mashes united. Can't handle possession and that's the probably you go. From beating liverpool liverpool keane had initiative. They went up and then scored. But i will also a respect scheffler united for their performance. I mean you could say. They deserve the window game because in the second half would it should be a pressure from manchester united at putting cavan on. There should make all kinds of efforts to get at least equalize. It didn't happen. I can't remember the chef. United goalkeeper had to make any big saves any big interceptions. Sometimes it came for crosses. So i think that that was mentioned uniting loosing on dreadful day of manchester united in the like marcial his buddy which is not even european europa league. Ins- it's down in the go. We don't championship. I can't believe how sometimes goes along on the pitch

Why the Death Toll From Covid-19 is Even Worse Than It Looks

Why the Death Toll From Covid-19 is Even Worse Than It Looks

"This week brought more sobering news on the coronavirus pandemic the us reported more than two hundred thousand new coronavirus cases for the ninth day in a row on wednesday on tuesday the us recorded more than forty three hundred deaths. A new high and wall street journal data analysis finds the global death toll. Currently nearing two million is four. Worse than the official numbers. Indicate here now to explain is wall street journal reporter john camp. Hi john thanks for joining me but you so john worldwide. The death toll due to the coronavirus is nearing two million. But a wall street journal analysis found that it's actually far higher than that more than two point eight million. What's not being captured in the official tallies we have right now. So the official. Tally is and we use account from johns hopkins university which tries to capture in real time. The data that each country puts out. Saying here's how many people died from corona virus but that data is just the known deaths that were linked to the disease. What it misses is really two big things and number one is people who died from covid nineteen but it wasn't written down on the death certificate or wasn't recorded that way in other words missed cova nineteen us and then the other one is essentially collateral damage people who died for other reasons that you can associate with the pandemic and that also doesn't get captured in account of covid nineteen deaths the. Us has been a helpful place because of a pretty good data from the cdc to explore this. And what we've seen is that there have been increases in deaths in things like alzheimer's and dementia and some cardiovascular issues and things like diabetes and health experts we've spoken with have said that this likely represents collateral damage from the pandemic. And you know for people with alzheimer's and dementia that could be some of the effects of lockdowns and disruptions in nursing homes that proved damaging for really fragile people in those settings For you know. In the springtime in particular they were instances where people were afraid to go to hospitals when they were having chest pains and so that could mean people having more heart attacks that proved fatal at home and these are what are known as excess deaths this all goes into the bigger bucket called excess deaths and this is something that scientists commonly used to try and really kind of measure the impact of a major event whether it's heat wave or a hurricane or a war because sometimes official counts associated with those events can miss the bigger picture so what scientists do and. This is what we did to in a fairly simple way. Is you look for the average number of deaths in in every country or in the place that you're interested in where there is a major event and then you find out how much deaths have increased over a period of time above that average. And that tells you that. There's you know unusual bulge and then you try and figure out what what makes up that bulge and what we found is that in most countries that we looked at cova nineteen will generally make up most of that but but certainly not all of it and that tells us that there's something else going on beyond just the disease

Acting DHS Chief Chad Wolf Resigns Ahead Of Inauguration

"The acting homeland Security secretary steps down. CBS is Debra Alfa Ronan reports from the capital. The abrupt resignation of acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf is drawing sharp criticism from security experts. The resignation of the homeland Security secretary nine days before National Security special event that he himself is responsible for is both disgraceful and irresponsible. Wolfe's resignation comes less than a week after he pledged to remain in office. And as the FBI warns of armed protests planned at all 50 state capitals leading up to the inauguration, President Trump is taking no responsibility for the violent insurrection at the U. S. Capitol. He made the comments during a trip today in Texas

Laurence Tribe says Trump should be impeached again even if a Senate conviction is unlikely

"Professor tribe welcome back to the podcast. It's been three years. Wow it doesn't seem like three years seemed like three months but you know time is very both compressed expanded these days. I wonder if it'll feel different after january twentieth. One can only hope and pray. That is why we are here because we need to have a discussion about what could possibly happen over the next nine days and right now the entire conversation happening in. The country is about the insurrection by domestic terrorists on the us capitol on january sixth and what form of accountability. should president trump have for inciting his followers and supporters to do that to the capital. And i wanna walk through each of the each of the proposed things. And let's start with the one that you and i both agree on and that is impeachment. The president of the united states should be impeached. A second time. Talk about why you feel. It's important that that bit of accountability happen first of all. No president has ever in our history done anything as obviously subject to impeachment. This is the quintessential high crime and misdemeanor the head of the executive branch. Fomenting violent insurrection and sedition against the legislative branch in an attack. The vet was apparently quite orchestrated but even if not president's involvement in it in a visible way so obvious that for us not to make him the first president in our history to be impeached. A second time would send a terrible signal to all future presidents to kids growing up in this country to the world that this is somehow not a high crime and misdemeanor so that if if the only effective in teaching him was purely historical marker that it lay down. Even if that was the only effect it would be indispensable but it isn't the only effect. There's a chance that it will put pressure on the senate in particular on mitch. Mcconnell to stop dragging their feet and to move more expeditiously after all the trial of president. Trump i don for his other impeachable activity involving trying to extort the crane in order to benefit himself in this very election. That whole trial just took three days. And when mitch mcconnell says as though it were written in the stars we can't come back until january nineteenth. When asked by the hell not. I mean it's a completely artificial propositions so pressure on him to actually reconvene the senate and have a trial. Which shouldn't take long. Because this was one of those rare instances. Both the initial attempt to pressure the secretary of state of georgia referenced burger to undo the results of the election and the follow one riot that the president fomented attacking the capital in leaving people dead. All those were in plain view of the american people end of the world. So it's not a very complicated trial and the result of that trial even if it didn't end until two days before the end of this presidency by natural processes occurred would still result in his conviction removal and disqualification. Assuming that was also voted from ever holding future office. Not as a vindictive matter but as a way of permanently killing this cancer. Exciting it from our national politics. Even if that doesn't happen james clyburn. Another have suggested that the trial could occur after the biden administration had time to get up and running spent one hundred days actually with constructive measures and then even though he's no longer president. Trump could be convicted and permanently disqualified. There are some scholars soup. Think that that is not a constitutional possibility but the evidence is pretty strong. That that's one option open to the congress and if you think about it the framers in designing the constitution would hardly have wanted to design it so that a really dangerous precedent could resign the moment before it looked like the senate was going to convict disqualify him and thereby cut short. The ability of the senate to perform the constitutional function of excising cancer from our politics is. It can't be that by the mere act of voluntarily ending his presidency a moment earlier that president could prevent the congress from doing its work and what that implies is that even though it is impossible for the senate to remove a an officer like the president. Because he's not removable anymore. He's removed himself ton. That clock has run even if it's impossible for it to remove him. It has the power to decide. Probably by amir majority vote that he should be disqualified from ever again holding federal office so those are among the reasons to go ahead and the final reason i should just mention is that an impeachment would hang over his head like the sort of damocles have been impeached that if he makes another terrible move for example if each is to pardon all of the people who were physically involved in the insurrection of the capital giving them a pardon from any federal prosecution if he were to do that then maybe that would suddenly motivate his removal and disqualification and so the deterrent also has a protective function for all those reasons. His impeachment think is mandatory. Unless of course he just resigns or pence response of will be asking me about the twenty fifth amendment tense response to the twenty fifth amendment called. It's going to be made upon him

With Congress Considering Impeachment, What's Trump's Next Move?

"What will President Trump's next move be with nine days left in office, with lawmakers in Congress moving to impeach again? And with possible indictments looming when he's no longer president a question to put to Stephen Groves who worked in the White House until June of last year as a special assistant to the president and deputy press secretary. Mr Grove's could speak with you again. Thanks for me on Mary Louise. What should President Trump do you know? Well, you know, um, he's already signaled that there's going to be a you know a transition of power after the inauguration day, actually, But, yes, he's acknowledged they'll be a transition going well, I don't know how much more he can do until that day, Mary Louise, you You go ahead and say that there's going to be a transition and you know what he does between now and then I don't know how much can be done. I don't know if they're any last minute executive actions to be taken or if he's just going toe. Take it easy. We know one thing for sure he's not going to be on Twitter or Other social media platforms because he's been banned, so we might not. I don't know how we're going to find out what he's doing anymore because he's not on Twitter. Well, if you want to tell us what he's doing, he could walk downstairs into a press conference or he could do what you're doing and given interview, But anyway, let me ask about something specific. And thanks for having me on too. By the way, I'm glad that there are Platforms that still allow conservatives and Republicans on so I do appreciate it. We're always delighted to have conservative voices on our Erin. We're glad that you were with us. Let me ask you this. Should the president speak out? To stop the plans to demonstrate at state capitals on to stop plans of armed writers coming back to Washington bearing arms in advance for the inauguration next week. I think that would be a great help to the country if he did if he could make it crystal clear on whatever platforms are available to him, that peaceful protest is permitted. Anything beyond that. Any violence and he pushing of police and he confronting the police and any type of violence at all or storming government buildings. Is not what the Republican Party is about. It is counterproductive. It is what the Antifa and BLM writers did all summer long. We're better than that. He should send that message. So it clear warning delivered. Now you think would be helpful. Do you think it is likely? We'll have to see you know, Inauguration is ah, while away. It would be nice if everyone kind of tried to lower the temperature, But we hear of impeachment and vocation of the 25th amendment on these things. It would be best for folks here in D. C, where you and I are if the temperature gets lowered over the next 10 days and not sent to a boiling

Aid agencies fear impact in Yemen after US terror decision

"With just nine days left for the trump administration today a big shift in us foreign policy in the middle east which could have long lasting effects secretary of state. Mike pompeo says the us will designate. Yemen's who the rebel movement a foreign terrorist organization this could seriously complicate future efforts to deal with yemen's humanitarian crisis and bringing the war to an end with us as yemen spokesperson for the norwegian refugee council mccormick. She joins us from auden. We need to quick reminder rena who are and what they represent to the state department specifically under mike pompeo sarala are otherwise known as to who 'this and they're the movement that took over the cups to of yemen's on a abide five years ago which sparked at the us to get involved in saudi led coalition in support of the government at attempt to remove them they significance for the united states has been an their accusations that the unser allow movement are backed by iran which of course for the us has broader regional at considerations and so it seems clear that this latest move is part of that regional strategy to try to minimize iranian influence in the region. This is quite fresh news. What is the reaction from yemen to do. Most people think this plan designation of who these as foreign terrorist organization was politically motivated. Well the news came in for us yemen time just this morning and so people are really trying to get to grips with us. At the moment. It's been mixed reactions here in yemen. Answer the otherwise known who have come out and in turn accused. The united states government of acting in a terrorist way other reactions from aid organizations have been the same message that has been given to the united states government for the last few months when such a move was being suggested which is that on many levels. This would be catastrophic and it would certainly have a widespread impact on the humanitarian situation. Here on the ordinary of yemenis who are trying to live their lives your organization the norwegian refugee council. What are you looking at are concerned about. What the implications of this they're going to for our ability to run an office hire staff and get goods into the country get critical supplies like food and water and supplies to help fight kovic around the country to the communities who need it's the most get materials for building emergency shelters an widely the kind of impacts that. We're looking at art. That really the feeling is that this will be devastating for the yemeni economy which is already in ruins after more than five years sustained violent or is it your expectation that the incoming biden administration will reverse this plan decision to label the husky rebel movement a foreign terrorist organization. It may not be possible to reverse this decision on if not then it is possible to put in place. The kind of protections in safeguards that are needed so these would be safeguards immediately and for all humanitarian activities near monitoring supplies. It also safeguards so that imports of critical and food and other supplies can come in and out of the country would go a long way towards mitigating or softening some of the impacts of this designation and as for the rest we i suppose we will have to see on the twentieth of january when the new administration comes in we are asking for the biden administration to make yemen one of its number one priorities on day. One re mccormick the yemen spokesperson for the norwegian refugee council. Speaking with us from auden. Thank you very much here. Very welcome

House prepares to impeach Trump for inciting the U.S. Capitol riot

"Democrats are moving forward with the plan to impeach President Trump for a second time. President has just nine days left in office, and Democrats say this week they plan to file an impeachment resolution. This follows Trump's incitement of his supporters last Wednesday, hundreds of whom descended on the U. S Capitol. The violent scene left five people dead, including a Capitol police officer and NPR congressional correspondent Kelsey Snell is here with us this morning with the latest take healthy. Good morning. How will this impeachment proceeding work? Well, it will start today when Democrats plan to bring up a resolution that would call on Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th amendment. Democrats will try to pass that unanimously, but Republicans could and probably will block it with just one objection. After that, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is basically giving Pence 24 hours. I kind of ultimatum to decide if he's going to invoke the 25th amendment. If he doesn't she plans to bring the process you know to Ah, hold of bring together the process to hold a vote on impeachment. Which could happen as early as Wednesday. Now on the question of impeachment, it's currently just one article referring to incitement to insurrection. It's based on Trump's address to the crowd before the riots began, and his attempts to overturn the election in 2020 more than 200. Democrats have signed on, and I'm told that they expect some Republicans will support it, too. You know, Democrats are pretty unified and saying what happened? The capital cannot be swept under the rug. Is that Trump can't be allowed to simply leave office without any consequences, And they want to make sure that the Senate has the opportunity to vote to convict so that it can bar trump from holding future federal office. Okay, Kelsey. This actually brings me to the question of Republicans. We heard a few of them say over the last few days, they want Trump out of office. How widespread? Is that feeling within the GOP, you know, some of that is kind of hard to gauge because most of them have been quiet. We know that Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski was the first to say that Trump should resign, but she's been joined by retiring Senator Pat Toomey. He was asked about this yesterday on CNN. I think at this point with just a few days left, it's the best half forward. Now there are a few others that agree. But some others, like Missouri Senator Roy Blunt, who's part of Republican leadership, says he basically wants Trump to be quiet for 10 days and just leave. You know, House Republican leaders have also mostly been silent, except for Liz Cheney, who has often broken with the rest of House Republican leadership when it comes to Trump Okay. This process the house wants to do is is really quick. But there's still the Senate, right? And you know, that is really the wild card here because Republicans will control the Senate until the Georgia elections are certified. And then the Senate has to meet and do some required organizing work. So that means that Mitch McConnell would control the timing and the Senate is out of session. So what would need to happen is they would have to bring them back into session. They would start a trial basically around Inauguration Day. Once an impeachment trial is triggered in the Senate, it stops everything else from happening. It forces senators to come to the Senate floor stick down six days a week until the trial concludes, and that could take weeks. House Minority Whip Jim Clyburn floated a proposal that he says could solve it. Here He is yesterday on CNN President Look Bad 100 days he needs to get his agenda off and running. Maybe we'll send you the articles. Sometimes after that, Ah, 100 Days is a really long time And that could be well after Trump leaves office And you know, Democrats want to proceed for all the reasons I've mentioned before, but this creates a really complicating political moment for Biden as he tries to, you know, move forward and move the country ahead. And this is all happening. I 30 seconds with you as we prepare for Joe Biden's inauguration. What are the concerns about safety? Yeah, they're still concerns the capitals a little bit like a fortress right now, with fences and National Guard troops and there. There's a process of a review right now. But there are serious concerns about whether or not the capital but will be fully safe for the bite. Administration were told that there are really efforts right now trying to Trying to beef up security and take every precaution. Possible.

"In one last thing you wanna talk about an actual close election. We'll look no farther than dickinson. Texas to houston. Suburb had its mayoral election in november. Which then went to a runoff will after the votes from that were tallied and retaliate. The candidates were tied cannot make it up. How does something like this happen. I mean it's really. It's really been unique so rather than riling up supporters. Both candidates did with the law told them to do. They showed up late last week for a random drawing this kind of anxious to have it resolved. I think one way or the other. We worked hard. You know sean. On both worked hard in texas if your town does not have a tiebreaker written into the law you're supposed to draw lots which kind of so the city council got to decide how to pick a winner. Someone apparently suggested arm-wrestling that did not happen. They eventually decided to have the candidates each write their name on a ping pong ball and drop them into a top hat is your body. Has capital riot was twenty four hours old so everyone was determined for this to be friendly respectful. Both candidates smiled shook hands. The person picking was the mayor of the neighboring town of. I'm not making this up. Friendswood in sean skipworth name was pulled. I'm just. I'm kind of numb. But i'm glad it into like this. He will be the new mayor his rival. Jennifer lawrence was the first to say congratulations. And no not that jennifer lawrence.

"The company that they had to step in. Let's talk about trump's potential outlets because the question clearly cannot be or people ever going to hear what donald trump passe again. right like. they'll him. It's just a question of where i imagine how many people will hear him is the answer to that. Something like no parliament like sites as much geared around the free speech even if someone considers that speech dangerous sure so there are a couple of social networks like parlour gab that have sprung up as twitter bam conservative figures vancouver far right activists. And they're sort of like we're the site that won't censor you won't moderate. Your comments hardware is increasingly popular with conservatives and allows users to see some graphic material including and conspiracy theory decides have some challenges of their own. Which is a book parlor and gab. Were long courting trump. I mean they saw it correctly as if trump left twitter for that movie huge for their business but at the same time any company. That's doing social media is going to run into a challenge. Which is it's not just your company even if you build your own servers whatever all of these companies exist in tech ecosystem. So they're using credit card companies for payment processing they're using cloud servers that are potentially run by amazon or other companies. They're using domain hosting. That's run by go daddy or another company like that. And so it's sort of like once there starts being a run on your site and once you know someone pulls their services then know this happened to gab. And so you. Essentially you can sort of get a raise from the internet or have to constantly be moving around. I'll she'll go. Daddy says like we have a problem. With president trump and that that affects a company like parlour exactly and so this is the exact issue parlors facing right now so over the weekend. Google pulled parlor from the app store and then apple pulled parlor from the app store and now amazon says as of as of sunday they're gonna poll essentially it's parlor uses amazon's cloud server So so parlor will lose it servers And so right now parlor is having between apple amazon and google is really having its technical. Support pulled out from under it well and we can talk about theoretically whether the president should be treated differently than others. I guess i'm also wondering 'cause i called you a technology correspondent you're somebody who really studies disinformation you somebody who is tapped into the queue and on-scene who's been following these dark corners of the internet for years so someone who's walked this unfolding for all this time. D platforming cancelling someone from using their counters. That work or do people just always find a new megaphone. Yeah i mean you know. I think there's a lot of debate debates be had about deep platform but certainly from the perspective of someone who wants a saner. Democracy perhaps people who are critical of these far-right figures. I mean it's very effective at marginalizing. Them you think of characters. Like alex jones at info. Wars a milo yiannopoulos laura luma. These are people who get got their attention Using social media and it was very low cost way to do it because you could just send a route. Really rude tweet. But when you're kicked off then you have to resort to these increasingly kind of ridiculous tactics to get attention and then you gotta become increasingly marginal figure. I think the tech community has a lot to think about an answer. For and i and i think You know president pass had had such a connection with their audience via twitter. But at the same time. I think debility of right wing groups to use social media has really Frankly demented some people developed a lot of excuses as to why hughes predictions on all always fail hyun on conspiracy theorists. Were all over the capital on wednesday. They were breaking into buildings. I've talked.

"In terms of actual injury to or death of members of congress and all of that was actually possible it seems images emerging of some with zip ties in the senate chamber where vice president mike pence was presiding. The crowd chanting hang. Mike pitts. i. I don't i think sixty seven is a high number and it's by design high number but it doesn't seem impossible to me then. I guess i'm wondering like what's the point rightly so dream but if you removed him on the on the nineteenth what that saves you a day. That like why. Yeah i i. I think we should say that members of congress may feel like there's a moral imperative to repudiate. This conduct right incitement of insurrection. But i also think there's a more concrete reason to potentially pursue impeachment and that might even include pursuing it after january twentieth. It's not possible to do it before the twentieth. And that's because impeachment carries two possible consequences if you can get a conviction. One is removal from office and of course after january. Twentieth inauguration of joe biden. We'll have done that but the other is disqualification from holding future. Federal public office. And so there's the view is that even if an impeachment trial happened after the twentieth and you could get sixty seven members of the senate to agree then you could disqualify trump from seeking the republican nomination in two thousand twenty four do that after january twentieth still. So it's never been tested brad with the president. There was one post departure impeachment of a cabinet secretary in the nineteenth century so the view is actually that yes. You can do it after the end of a term in office but of course the president. It's never been tested. Karen is president. Actually going to the this also speaks my question of like why would you want. Is the president going to do anything else in his next nine days in office or is it essential is this. We're all just talking about wednesday. That's the he deserves punishment. That's why they're doing this bread. The white house is planning to go ahead this week. As if it's business as usual officials tell us that this week he's gonna be out in about. He's traveling to texas toured the southern border and talk about security there and the border wall. And he's going to do a series of events that day say is aimed at highlighting his record. What they think or his accomplishments. You know but brad one of the big things that you're hearing from Lawmakers and officials in washington that that nineties is a lot of time. Perhaps my colleagues were in that room. Perhaps my colleagues were not fully present for the events on wednesday but half of we can close to half of the house nearly dying say oh we only has nine days left to be president but nine days a lot can happen in a foreign head of state if another head of state came in and ordered an attack on the united states congress. Would we say that. That should not be prosecuted. Should we would. We say that there should be absolutely no response to that. No it is an active insurrection. It's an act of hostility and we must have accountability because without it will happen again. We do know one thing brad and this might may bring down the temperature a little bit next week. The president announced last friday. He's not going to joe biden's inauguration. I was told that on the way up here over here that he indicated. He wasn't going to show up at the inauguration on the few things i've ever bought were told that the president is not expected to even be in washington Certainly not the white house before the inauguration so he might be out of town and maybe that brings things down just a little dig considered super like rude when he said he wanted now a lot of lawmakers. Thank you yeah Science relief absolutely right. Exactly kate are there other potential con. We talked about impeachment but are there other potential consequences for trump out there. Like we've seen people argue. He could be complicit in the riots themselves. I don't can you get arrested for making people you know. So the question of whether he could face any kind of federal criminal charges after he leaves office. I think is a hard one. I do think that there are absolutely cases that could be made for things. Like incitement of insurrection. Seditious conspiracy so. I wouldn't rule out the possibility that biden justice department will take a look at whether there's potential criminal charges that could be brought against then ex president trump because remember doj things. You can't indict sitting president but you can certainly an ex president. Certainly we'll be more pardons. I'm told to expect a lot of them. I am told that he almost certainly will include a pardon of himself. I think a possibility. And why i think there are active conversations about a self pardon That's never been tested and no president has ever tried it But i wouldn't be surprised to see trump attempt to pardon himself on the way out the door and we should say we don't know that that would shield him from federal criminal exposure because the justice department might say. we don't think that's valid. We're going to charge you anyway. I mean one of the thing. I'll say is that. There's a somewhat obscure provision of the fourteenth amendment that has been getting some attention just in the last couple of days and then section three which basically says that anyone who has engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the united states cannot hold federal office. And there's another provision in the fourteenth amendment that says congress can enforce the provisions of the fourteenth amendment so there is an argument that congress could actually parcel law under section five basically disqualifying trump from holding office again under section. Three based on his having incited insurrection. Now congress would have to make the findings that that he had done so but if it this was a legal strategy that they decided to try and it succeeded it would mean. They wouldn't need the sixty seven votes in the senate This would be passed like ordinary legislation and presumably ordinary legislation under president biden. Who i think would be unlikely to object to it so i think there are a number of possible avenues for consequences Beyond just the impeachment. I think we're gonna be hearing a lot about this week. Last question. I keep asking about the next ten days for president trump. What about the next few weeks or months or years for the gop. Like if you just said our president should be removed from office. And your republican. Does that mean you're betting on republican party. That just doesn't like president trump anymore because that that seems like a tall ask commuters. Not a whole lot of question here so you know so you think it wasn't impeachable offense fortunate. Oh sure yeah. I think it's been striking to see how much anger there has been among republican lawmakers. This was a tragic day for the country. And the president. Had some bob in that. But i think right now the sense right now today. Is that the brand is very toxic and this is a very bad way to go out of office. All i can say is Count me out. Enough is enough but memories tend to be pretty short and the president is he likes to say often.

"It's monday january. Eleventh joe biden is set to become the forty sixth president unless mike pence makes in the forty seventh. We start ear. President trump will be gone. Inauguration day we'll congressional democrats now say we can't wait that long. We must have accountability because without it will happen again. What's possible might have just changed a matter of days. We'll preview potentially unprecedented week in washington. Meanwhile he's already lost one of his favorite parts of the job. Twitter specifically highlighted some tweets. The president had sand play social media. Companies chose to silence a sitting president. Thought you could break into the capital then tweet about it. One of the most photographed seeds in the history of crime. What happens when the consequences of a riot. Follow you from abc news. This start here. Uh i'm brad milkey during the course of his reelection campaign. president trump campaigned on lots of different things. That's just the nature of the presidency. One was what he called law and order. Respect for police officers trust that justice will prevail without violence as the only way. We're going to lose. This election is if the election is rigged. Remember that the only way we're gonna lose this election so we have to be very careful you also campaign on this idea that there is a deep state a group of people in the government. Republicans and democrats bent on keeping him from winning the election after months. Claiming there's still no proof of it or even real evidence for these people. He said they need to be overcome. Overwhelmed will last wednesday we saw which of these ideas was more important to the crowd outside the capitol the crowd that trump later priced stout probably seen pictures of people wrenching. The gates from police officers. Glad you seen them breaking property ransacking offices that is scary but it still belies. How truly violent. This invasion was burned this is. Abc news verified photos and videos throughout the weekend. We saw people coming at police with hammers swinging at the hands of clutching those barricades swinging them achile guarding doorway self protesters spraying chemicals into the of police than lowering your shoulders and bowling them. Over with one bloodied officer caught in a doorway. Shoved is art as they could essentially crushing. Meanwhile outside members of the crowd that a police officer down on the ground a main grabs him by the helmet and drags him down some states men around them using sticks batons and even american flag to beat the cops defending the apple. This was an event in which dozens a police were injured and was killed the day after this. Abc news and put out a poll. Asking americans what they thought now about president trump this morning and abc news ipsos poll suggests that two-thirds of americans hold trump responsible for the assault on the capital while slim majority fifty six percent believe trump should be removed from office before his term runs out on january twenty as of this morning a majority of americans now support removing president trump from office that is higher than most polls during the president's first impeachment trial however you think americans are all on the same page here. Same poll over the weekend found one out of three americans still believe that joe biden's election was not legitimate. President trump has nine days left in his term. But no one really knows what this is about to look like. So let's start the day with. Abc's karen travers who works the white house speech an abc news legal analyst. Kate shaw karen. There have been questions as to whether lawmakers would actually try to remove president. Trump from office will all the sunday answer from nancy. Pelosi seems to be. Yeah yes brad. And they're moving really fast toward a possible second. Impeachment of president trump. This is never happened in us history. No president has been impeached twice. A very dangerous person through should not continue in office. This is urgent. This is emergency of the highest magnitude last night house speaker. Nancy pelosi told her democrats that the house today will move forward on a measure. That's calling on vice president pence to invoke the twentieth amendment and remove president trump from office. If the vice president a cabinet do not act. The congress may be prepared to move forward with impeachment. That is the overwhelming sentiment of my caucus. She's giving him an ultimatum. Pelosi says they're going give pence twenty four hours and if he doesn't act. Democrats are going to move forward with impeachment. So what does that mean. They're going to introduce an impeachment resolution. That's just a single article of impeachment over one hundred ninety members of congress sponsored an impeachment resolution. That concludes donald. john trump. Engaged high crimes and misdemeanors by wilfully inciting violence against the government of the united states. And brad there's about two hundred lawmakers that right now are signed onto that resolution there are democrats. There's no republican yet that has publicly signed onto it even as we're hearing rumblings that some republicans are so angry with the president that perhaps they could consider supporting this after this. We're going to walk down. And i'll be there with you. This resolution charges the president with incitement of insurrection. It's essentially accusing him of inciting violence against the government with the comments that he made at that rally last wednesday. Walk down to the capital. And we're gonna cheer on our brave senators and congressmen and women and we'll probably not gonna be cheering so much for some of them. Because you'll never take back our country with weakness you have to show strength and you have to be strong brad. The democratic resolution says that those comments from the president encouraged and forcibly resulted in imminent lawless action at the capital. Well i mean assuming president does not go forward with that does not get the cabinet members needed for the twenty fifth amendment. Kate shaw you need two hundred. Eighteen congressional members to impeach the president right. You need a majority of the house. Then it goes to the senate you need like. Two thirds of them isn't impeachment of a sitting president possible when there's nine days left well a couple of things brad one. I think it's almost certain that if pelosi brings this article to the floor that it will absolutely pass and pass easily. So i think you're right. The real question lies with the senate so right now. The senate isn't scheduled even come back into session until january. Nineteen the day before inauguration. But we should say that's within the senate's control. They could decide to come back early. If they deemed it sufficiently important so now i think the calendar is less the obstacle than the political will to return and to consider this article of impeachment. Well i think the country is the right way to hold presence The president should be very careful over the next ten days. I honestly don't think impeachment the smart move. Because i think victimizes donald trump again. I think stand-down this will destroy the country for their could get to two thirds of the senate right sixty seven votes are required to convict and remove the president And i don't know for what it's worth bread. It seems to me that this is a story that gets worse for the president with every passing. Day the ruthless. And it's time that somebody did something about it and mike pence. I hope you're going to stand up for the good of our constitution and for the good of our country. And if you're not going to be very disappointed at you i will tell you right now. I'm not hearing good stores as we learn more of just how dangerous and harrowing the scene inside the capitol was and how close to unbelievable tragedy.

I think you you kind of understand you get to an understanding where you pay a team to do something right and they give you something that you don't want it used to give notes back that talked about solutions. The talk about could fix this one shot by doing this and I think the consensus among a lot of the people on in our realme that I've heard a lot is that you pay the creatives to be creative. Why distill what you don't like about the creative in to a note on how to replace it why not just tell them that this is the part of the thing that isn't working for you and let them expand their creativity in in coming up with the answer rather than providing an answer and limiting them because when you give them a suggestion. Maybe. They don't explore the other options that are out there because you are paying them do something and you said, hey, how about instead of doing this you do this where where you should just say I, don't like this and you figure out how to fill that void. You audience figure out how to solve this problem not not me the filmmaker I'm I'm shining light on something. Okay. Shining a light. Absolutely I think what they need to do at the very minimum is.

They have magical bows and arrows or something I mean our swords. And they know just where to hit the Dragon. Yeah and then there's like Dragon Ish triceratops. ragging ish monster spike news or something, and whatever you know it's a great movie when you're seven-year-olds. Does monsters, look amazing. And I'm ripping on this movie a little too much maybe. That's all right. What are your thoughts? I think it's like star Grace Stargate it has a stargate field. Yes. That's that's the part that interest me like play stargate in the beginning but I it kind of got ridiculous and I never got into the macgyver ones. That's what I'm afraid of is that you know it's GonNa be cool until it's not and then you're like well I mean as far there's forty minutes to go. And it's going to be one of those movies were like. With the remote and you're like how much time is left I'm not to jump the gun to what we're watching, but I'll give you what I wasn't watching this week and it was Terminator Dark Okay I turned it off halfway was it that bad it felt I've been watching a lot of great television and it's shot really well, and it shot with good cameras and stuff and it felt like this one was felt like tv she a Mexican soap opera Telenovela. All right man this next one this is I thought we were going down. This is a theme until I saw the last one but nine days another Sony Pictures. Right. Right Oh. Yeah. Okay. So you thought it was going. into. The last one, which is Disney and. Sony Pictures. So I'm like well, there goes that theme this one I just saw nine days. Yeah. So I mean it has Winston Duke in it. You know. So I think he's he's amazing and I've seen him grow over the years and all the other marvel stuff you know so. It. Looks Fantastic. Sundance movie. So why do you think they chose nine days and not ten because think about it were seven seven would have been the classic thing. Well, seven's kind of been done. Though right seven I. Guess you know what I mean and I mean and then they do the seven backwards. They would go that route but but no think about the cruiser going well, not not not these days but going to cruise fourteen day cruiser Attendee Day cruise nobody's going on ninety crews. Yeah. So I don't know I mean why do you think nine days just to like throw off kilter something something like purgatory or something you're traveling you're traversing some kind of plane of existence. Again another parallel universe do light, which is kind of like bizarro world. Sort of feel is net. You get all of these facebook video shots on late eighties tech. Like the CR.

It's a fun confinement to of shoot in you know the the starkness of the one house in the desert, and then you go into it and it has this level of complexity a metaphorical plane of existence. Yeah.

"It's like it looks like straight up just I'm going to sit there and just be zombie fide fi feat feta to me you know and feed it to me and when it's over, it's over and I don't think there's much substance to this movie. Did you think of old guard old? No I thought the old guard had a lot well although I. Am I talking trailers or am I talking the movie to the trailer? We saw both of these trailers, right? Like they had both you know these strong female leads in the desert. Remind military thing going on around them completely different. They're not immortals right. But some magical stuff's going on there. You know they're getting transported teleported I think the old guard left me with a few questions that I felt needed to be answered and they really didn't answer it though because they were well, they sort of did in the old guard when it was more to come, there's mortar crate but how did they become immortal and stuff and then it was like Oh let's go capture them and we could get their genetics and figure it all out and they kind of just they kinda lead into that a little bit I. Don't know what leads to the electric storm teleport's them into this parallel. I don't even think I care what leads to the electric storm that parallels that they're just it's kind of like that old dinosaur movie landed. No not land in the last. What was it? Where they that was is that what it was that was that was one of were they kind of like they were in a submarine or something or whatever it was and they like they emerged there. Rain? I think they went on a well one of them. They went a raft right in the raft one hundred maybe it was a rat the falls it went into. That's what. It was like you're in the desert. Yeah. That's what it was like into. Okay. Sure. Dinosaur place I don't care what the storm is about or some alien thing or something it doesn't like but I did care about how they became immortals. So, I think this movie monster hunter leaves me less curious as to why it's all happening Okay and like I said, I'll just sit there mouth. I'll be a mouth breather for two hours. And it'll it'll end. I do I. Did laugh at when the woman's driving the Humvee and like she's got get out of here and she like you see your like as if she's hitting the gears and slamming the pedal. For one thing I drove I drove home vs automatics. The second thing about Humvees they're not fast at all I. Mean You you slam the gas you might go from thirty to thirty five in like zero to sixty. I mean it's like I I i. don't even get that scene. It's not like this thing like a Ferrari you know. So that was a little bit annoying. Yeah. Okay. You know you have this bunch of. People in this ranger unit I guess because she has like a ranger scroll honor okay. I didn't pick up that detail Abbott she doesn't have a ranger tab so she didn't go to ranger school. Inconsistent Rain Yeah Yeah, saw I know all the military people out there right now listening like man reach your brother. I don't know I mean whatever I don't even care about the military details and what the weapons systems are and stuff. That's irrelevant to me does the does the does the dragon the cool. Drag looks like the one in game of thrones is probably the same dragon for all I know. Three degrees the Dragon..

"So get started in March of this year. Hundreds of students at Howard University took over building a they released a list of nine demands and occupy occupy the building for nine days until seven of their demands were met I spoke to Alexis mckinney. One of the organizers of h resist the student movement responsible for the occupation of building a Alexis is my niece. I'm here with Alexis Alexis mckinney. Who has just finished up her senior year? At Howard University. The thing is though Alexis Texas probably caused more trouble at Howard University than the administration ever thought she would. They're probably happy to see you. Go what do you you think. They'll probably definitely happy to see me. Go administrators at Howard and they know your name. I don't know it's a good thing when the administration the knows your name it can be a good thing in a bad name. I'll probably have a couple of files. Two thousand everybody there right so yeah yeah so I understand that you were. One of the lead organizers for h you resist the whole group that took over the administration building holding this past year at Howard University so my I mean my first sort of question what you know it was sort of interesting to like. Oh she's on buzzfeed speed away she's on. NPR AWAIT CNN. Okay like how I mean. How do you get to the point where you decide? Hey I think it's a a good a good idea to take over the administration Building at Howard University. So tell me like how did how did that idea ever even start so h is we actually started back in February of last year when we A few students we noticed the university aligning itself with the trump administration And so that's when we said I listened to man's and this year we had a second list which was backed up by a survey that we did with eight percent of the undergraduate population over five hundred people. And I think we always knew as we were organizing that we've been ended up taking the building because Direct Action Shen and protest is really the only way that our administration listens or even pays attention to the students in a serious way. I'm and it was also continuing a tradition that had already existed incident Howard so the first Occupation of the building happened in nineteen sixty eight fifty years ago and then the second one was in one thousand nine hundred nine and so there was a legacy of students taking physically physically taking back our power our economy over our university and so we definitely wanted to continue in that tradition and it was the most plausible way to get demands. Met which we did get seven of the nine minutes okay so you talked about it from an ideological standpoint but from a process standpoint Dan boy I mean like really like what do you do. Okay so what are you saying. Hey let's all meet at the bottom of the hill at nine. AM So how did that part happen. Right right so The tactical part of it was actually one of the hardest parts of just getting in the building because the we had released our our our demands a week before we actually took the building so the university knew that we were going to do something And so what we did from a logistical standpoint. Was We had a rally out on the. The Yard is kind of like a distraction to kind of. Wait wait wait did you say wait. Did you say you had a rally on the yard as a distraction. Yes yes and also to help us get more students mobilized to get in once we got the building so we had the rally out on the yard and so throughout the day starting at like ten. Am We had students students trickling into the building to already be there and be able to let more students in and so by the time it was. I think three o'clock three or four o'clock we had about fifty students inside the building waiting for us to act. And so we've made the call. We just rest the building. Everyone that we have from the rally came from the yard the Abilene we rushed the building I think in that point. We don't know we had a good amount of people. The whole bottom floor was pretty full. We originally the building And then a few of US went out on the RN. Said Hey we're able to come. We got food coming over because we did have. We order pizza that night. We have pizzas donated and just guy people. That's how we got people in. So so how did the administration lead So I think there was a lot of campus police still in the building for the first few days. Actually actually we were finally able to get them out but we administrators leave And I think the building may have already been kind of closed because it was like a Thursday so people leave early a lot so around thirty so by the time. We'd actually taking a lot of initiatives. Were already out so once. They walked out the door. You what closed and locked the door behind him. How did that work? We didn't lock the door for the first few days We had we had students at the door And only campus police really maintenance people were allowed and we had students like guarding the door but then after we got him as police out. We didn't let anyone who didn't have to ninety inside the building. We had students stationed at every entrance of the building every hour. Oy for security so you took over the first floor. How many floors are in the building? Four force so how did you move up to the next floors lors After the first night I think your the first or second night we just know people spread out and just you know kind of go up in. We control the building so we had full access to the building and so we actually had the first floor with kind of general. We had a lot of activities in the basement floor. We had some activities so it I five floors. Actually 'cause there's a basement And we had a lot of activities and there was also a sleeping area there too and that became actually like the queer. LGBT NON gender conforming folks space to sleep so they can feel safe and then the second floor was the fim only florus only theme identifying people could sleep and be on that floor and the third was kind of anybody and that was the quiet floor and the fourth floor. We really didn't let anyone go up there because that was the president's office and a lot of files there's for legal reasons like we don't want a lot of people going up there just in case anything came missing or whatever so okay sounds like a really good plan. I understand that the attorney who had worked on the previous takeover go over served as an adviser for you this time. How did that work? Yes so Donald Temple who is an amazing lawyer who has a law firm in DC. He we met him actually actually last year when we first started organizing And he had given us some legal advice. I run into him on campus because he's also a Howard alone And we knew he had the history of representing ending the students in one thousand nine hundred nine as well as you do see students when they took over the president's office in Nineteen Ninety And so we called him and he came and he was there every single day. Hey helping US supporting us. Spending a lot of hours just to be in I give us legal support. He lives in every day of negotiations. I remember one night. We Finish Negotiations Association's about twelve. Am with the board of trustees. And then I was working on some legal language like one. AM and I. I remember recalling him and saying hey can you look at this real quick for me. Sorry I remember telling him you know you look at this language for me real quick it was like one. AM and he's a yeah. I'll do this and get back to you for him so I took a net. I woke up. We got we linked up at like four thirty more emailing back and forth and then I started my day like seven and so that was just part of his commitments are caused which is really beautiful and I still talk to him. He's become a mentor for us. So it's been really good. Were there other people like that. Who helped out provided counseling and advice? Yes we are only lawyer but we had an outpouring of support from the community so we had black lives matter and B. y. p. one hundred The both these chapters they came they brought legal observers. who were there? The whole nine days twenty four seven we had a medic room setup that was free charged with medical trained. Medical People Were there twenty four seven seven. Who actually stayed in the building with us We had so many donations. I'm a food we we have a weekly food pantry on the Sunday that we were in there we were actually able to do our food. Who pantry and feed over five hundred homeless people just from leftovers perishable leftovers and people were making sandwiches in the kitchen and people uber's out into the Northeast and southeast DC not and gave out our food that we had because we had so much so that was really beautiful? Just the support that we got from the community. So how did you guys wrap everything up there in the end and so we had our press conference well before the press conference We went out to the students who are out there and kind of presented the agreement that we come to when voted on it to make sure you know we were all good with what was happening. Wanted to maintain the democratic space that we created And then we had. We signed the agreement with the president resident on the fourth floor and then we had a press conference and then we had to basically clean up because we had nine days with the community. You know we didn't leave so there the sleeping bags food all this. We spent that time cleaning up as a community and then We had our little chance of stuff when we we've finished at like ten o'clock at night and we had so much stuff leftover but we did a little champ. We took a picture in front of student flower flag. That was At the front of the building We live right it cool. So do you feel like it was success. Definitely definitely I think even besides the fact that we got seven of our nine demands met It was the only one that you didn't get met. Where like the trustees and the president resigning yeah exactly? I think beside had that it was a it was a demonstration of power and a very physical tangible way and I think there are people whose lives were changed by being a part of that people who never thought about protesting or organizing or being involved in any kind of thing like that now. Their life direction may change and the community that we built while we were in the building building. I mean we had open MIC nights. We had a study sessions tutoring Healing circles we have art gallery on the basement floor. That just popped up because students WanNa really do that and so just that creativity in that community that we fostered. I think one of the biggest successes of our movement. Wow so I've even read that. Some people people think that what you did conserve as a model for what students might be able to do at other universities. Yeah right during during and right after our occupation to other schools started their own takeovers and sit in their own university so we did Spark some political action which is really exciting winning and really encouraging for me as a student organizer And I definitely want to help. Spread that knowledge and that experience that we've gained through our year of experience Onto other students who can do similar things and get things accomplished at the school it's really necessary especially Hvac us because we need it all right cool anything else. You WANNA AB I think Just that you know while we were successful. It's really important for us to always know that the work is not is not Over much work to be done at Howard and beyond And that there is power and being a student and and collective work and organizing. I think our movement demonstrated that and then it's possible anywhere uh-huh..
