Know, I know they're around, but I just haven't seen any granted. I don't get out as much as I used to, but still, we haven't seen much activity with the cicadas. I understand they're big and powerful, and in full force in parts of North Carolina, Virginia, and into DC. And one thing, some crazy confectioners are doing, are creating a food treat. Yes. Chocolate-covered cicadas. Are the new temporary taste Trend. Now, I've had chocolate covered in sauce before and let's be honest. You really just taste the chocolate and you get a little crunch. I don't want to say it's like a Nestle Crunch bar, but in a way it is because you don't really think about what you're crunching into that little hard part. But there are people making lots of money right now. Trying get all the cicadas, they can find to create chocolate-covered cicada treats. If you will, this is what I'm going to pass on.

Receivers to Target in the Late Rounds of your Dynasty Rookie Draft - burst 04
"Turnaround. Flip them for profit moving onto the next guy who ran five picks later in the nineteenth pick of the guy that i am super high on. Its the army brown from north carolina. Going to the washington football team and let me tell you why i like damn brown. The rebound has six one. One hundred eighty nine pounds of has pretty ideal size for receiver but and north carolina. he had to terrific seasons. He's past two seasons in twenty twenty. He had fifty five catches for one thousand ninety nine yards and the twenty nine thousand nine hundred fifty one catches for one thousand three hundred four forty nine yards and oh by the way throughout. He had twelve touchdowns in his sophomore year in towns in his junior. This is pretty impressive. Because i'm not sure if the North carolina has had great quarterback play particularly either. It is not. I'm not super familiar with a north carolina. The program but how how how should be the number one pick probably next year so they. They've had a pretty good quarterback he's other classmate that's right. I did hear about how so okay. They did have how but anyway. A guy putting up static this two years as Sophomore and junior. And he's doing this by the way with fifty one and fifth in fifty five receptions so it's not like he's getting a ton of targets he's maximizing opportunities putting up staff that are up there with with the top of the top and so this is a guy that You could argue count. Wise in what he's produced typically makes him atop success in receiver in this class. But oh by the way. He's fallen into the third round. Now the draft and he's actually ending up in a landing spot better than the guys that went before him because the washington football team they have terry maclaurin but do they have a number two receiver. No the don't cam. Sims is not going to cut it. Let's let's be real here for second. Kempson is not going to cut this guy who's going to step in right away and be the number two receiver so if anything. I can see this guy having a top five season as far as rookie receivers this this upcoming season because there is such an immediate chance for brown shine. I loved the town. And i love the situation. So both those things matchup for me and ryan patrick in their offense while just knowing ryan fitzpatrick. He's a guy who likes to sling the ball He's not free for big throws and yami brown is a guy that could be a target while so this is an the situation to really like especially in the strip term but i think his talent overall what is what will help him. Secure the number two role for washington in the long term. You did forget. Courtesy meals with their in the offseason. Curtis samuel okay. yes courtesy. You might be the number two receiver. But i'm not. I'm not saying that kurdistan wills a lot in geometry breath. If i think those are two big comparable players and the down brown can still end up. Overtaken curtis samuel for the number two role because it's not like samuels established in washington. Anyway he's gonna they're gonna walk on equal playing fields if anything. Yeah to co plank. Roads honestly yeah. So i mean i you know how high was on diane. Be brian i think i was probably than anybody else in the industry pre-draft in you know the fact that he didn't get a super high draft capital. I think a lot of people would just never really caught up to where the hype was going was headed towards So now he kinda ended up back back to where he's at. I know you said you saw them. You know at the beginning of the third round in. I'm in motion address. At pretty much where i got him every draft. You know there was two guys. I walked away with almost in every draft i. It was karen's marshall because if he was following the second taking them and diani bryant third. I was taking him no matter what and wasn't trained. Now those picks and i wasn't moving up or down at sticking with it. So i ended up with jami round maybe beating my number one player at of all my dynasty leaks. So you know. I'm i'm really high. I think there's a lot of potential to proprietor curse. Amiel i do think we'll we'll out touch him for sure year. One you know. But terry mccaren is another guy you know. He did not have first round draft capital as a rookie. So he's only got a couple of years left before they have to really choose on renewing his contract whether they wanna pay him if they view him to be a. You know an elite receiver that they wanna pay top ten top twenty money. They might just let him walk. You know and if that's the case the brown is almost a cologne terry records. You know he. He averaged over twenty yards a catch with a lot of volume in college. Which is one of. it's got to be one. The highest of abo scouted and You know the way he wins is he. Wins deep wins. He's a burner he gets out feel and i think there's actually a lot of room for him to grow because didn't see him run a really complex route tree and north carolina. They didn't ask them to you. Know and as kirsten says you know why why would the team tell him to do something different and teach them other rouse when when he consistently wins for twenty on the field every time you know. They don't need them to do that but an nfl. He probably has higher upside now because he can still learn. The trees like we saw with decay metcalf in some other like a jay brown. You know the same knock on metcalf was he. He only ran Slants down the in the Mississippi offense coming out of college and look how that turned out you know now. He's one of the better route runners in the entire league to mix with the athletes athletic ability. So i really liked the army brown. And i think that You know if you're getting him in the late second and early dirty of your rookie drafts. I think you're you're walking away with one of their players in the draft. One of the guys that we both really like. You can expect for geometry brown to produce put up some big

That were meant for republicans causing a six thousand votes swing against our candidates. The county clerk came forward and said tabulating software glitched and caused a miscalculation of the boats. Since then we have now discovered that forty seven counties use this same software in the same capacity. Antrim county head to hand. Count all the ballots and these counties that use the software needs to closely. Examine their results for similar discrepancies. The people of michigan deserve a transparent and open process so on the ap the new york times a tenured professor in two thousand eighteen and there had been congressional hearings on this at princeton at the ag of state of texas twice in one year. Two thousand nineteen rejecting this particular software system and the or this particular system of voting dominion and once twenty thirteen. And then you hear from laura cox.

Your yeah thank you sean Thank us senator. Taste for for your efforts Joining in this You know this is really important because election integrity matters so much on i I sponsored a bill in the legislature two years ago to ensure that we would use paper ballots so that we would have more integrity in our elections that was unanimously supported signed into law. And this is another step in that direction Vice president biden affirmed in the first debate and pledged that he would wait until an independent certification of the election had taken place before declaring a victor in that in the election.

"Compromised of hard choices. Something made more difficult by internal disputes mismanagement by the previous administration and obstructionism by republicans which he suggested was rooted in an attempt to appeal to the anxiety about the first black president and he admitted some shortcomings of his own calling his failure to pass immigration reforms. A bitter pill to swallow remember. He did things that he had said. Numerous times himself that he wasn't able to do by executive fiat. He did them anyway. He said as far as i was concerned the twenty ten election didn't prove our agenda had been wrong. It just proved that i'd failed to rally the nation as fdr had once done. That wasn't it. Nobody likes your plan and everything you promise never came true. Millions lost the doctors. Millions lost their plans and on average every american's pay in two hundred percent more. It's just not accurate. He writes he wonders sometimes about whether john mccain would still pick palin if he had known her spectacular rise and revalidation a candidate will provide a template for future politicians shifting his party center and the country's politics over on a direction that he abhorred. It's it's so interesting that you know republicans. When they run they get destroyed what wasn't said about john mccain in two thousand and eight what know and the people that supported him you know you conservatives hannity gotta suck it up. It's a the the better choice here. The lesser of two evils. We're divided nobody. No republican can win and conservative. Suck it up with you. Know rhino republicans establishment republicans. Look at what. They did to mitt romney. So what i find sorta like political stockholm syndrome. If you will thinking that these people are going to like you whenever you trash donald trump but they said the same things about you and they seem to always forget it. I don't live in this bubble that i actually believe that you know. Democrats are anything other than what we saw. The last four years.

"Either side on the number of electoral votes that we have coming into play, and then all of our Senate seats being up for grabs. Yeah I would say I agree with you wholeheartedly, and the nation is watching how folks like you three are gonNA decide. So when we come back, we'll talk about what you want in leadership in Washington. We are having our final voter roundtable before the end of voting next week, and we were talking to three native North Carolinians will be back with a lot more. This is on point. This is on point I'm Meghna Chakrabarti. This is our last voter roundtable that we are holding before the end of voting next week and we are talking with north, Carolinians today because they're state. North Carolina is considered. One of the most critical must win states in the road to the White House I'm joined today by von Gretchen pugh she's with us from Raleigh North? Carolina? Bill. Pool joins us from newborn north. Carolina and bread and beavers is with us from Robbins Ville North Carolina, and we talked to a lot of north Carolinians in the process of preparing for today's roundtable. For example, here is Linda smart she's from Oxford North? Carolina. She voted for President Trump in two thousand sixteen. She's going to cast her ballot for him again I WANNA really have. In there who's really good with foreign affairs and. I think president trump has done a lot to ease a lot of attention. S- around the world To make it work better for us with a trade and different relationships I. Think we get a little respect we didn't have under Obama. That Linda smart from. North Carolina as I mentioned a little earlier all of our guests today are live round table guests are native North Carolinians but the state has attracted a lot of outsiders who moved to North Carolina and call it home. One of them is Derek party he grew up in hempstead village on Long Island New York. Community a black middle class. Republicans. So my orientation with Republican Party goes way back way not years and Derek worked as a homicide detective in Nassau. County. But in twenty twelve, he moved to Huntersville. North. Carolina near Charlotte in two thousand sixteen he voted for Donald Trump eight is a New York. Republican I felt that he would bring a business is business since the presidency but also I just felt that you know we just needed a change to get him in there. So Derek hoped that Donald trump president trump would leave those parts of himself back in. New York an entertainer, a celebrity. Brand the trump name brand I felt that he would not bring all that to the oval. Office. and. It seems like he cannot let that go and he did bring that to the Oval Office and and and I think it's time to replace him. You have to be aware that there are people that offer your interest net people that just there for their own interests. Let's Derek Party. is originally from Long Island New York now lives in Huntersville North Carolina. So von Gretchen Bill and Brandon. I am eager to hear what you're looking for in a leader for this country over the next four years and who do you think is best suited. To fit that bill and Vanja and let me start with you. I would say for the upcoming president having someone that takes ownership regardless of the outcome of Bill in our current presidency. That only happens when quote unquote something good takes place and I think as a nation no matter what side of the aisle you're on we need that we need to know that it didn't go right we're going to work together to make it better. Versus ally didn't do that or that wasn't on my watch we certainly Need someone would moral we attitude and not just an I and someone that knows how to exercise compassion but can be cut product needed for you know a lack of a better term I think are the business side of of president trump. Had or could have had its pluses if you would if utilized in the correct way, there are some good things about it but certainly, not so good. In my opinion. So. Does that mean that your your do you know for sure if you're going to vote for the former Vice President Biden. I've already voted in. CAST. My vote for the Biden Harris Ticket on certainly even in I wasn't a given. So to speak in two, thousand, sixteen, I did not want to vote for Hillary but I felt like the dynamic of president trump may work against us in my opinion has just based on you know who he was in where came for him. So to speak just as the last gentleman was saying, bringing his celebrity bringing that dynamic to the White House and that wasn't the place for that. Okay. So so bill same question to you. What kind of qualities do you wanna see in a leader for this country and who do you think fits that? Will. Not to judge candidates based on. What you said, what won't out of the candidate and? In my philosophy is I believe in limited government. Individual Freedom. Personal Responsibility. Free Enterprise in adherence to the Constitution. Now haven't laid that out neither candidate is is. is a perfect fit in But go into the. Limited government.

Chakrabarti and for the past two and a half months ten straight weeks, we've been hosting voter roundtables hearing from people across the country and today on point it's our last voter roundtable before the end of voting next week so we are talking with. North Carolinians joined by three of them today Bond Gretchen pugh joins us she's a regional study coordinator in Raleigh, North Carolina von Gretchen Welcome to point. Hello everyone, it's great to have you and also with us from New Bern North Carolina. Is Bill Pool. He works in sales for a local radio group Bill. Welcome to you.

He's delivery driver and a graduate student at Western Carolina University Brandon welcome to you. Thank you glad to be here. So I was wondering if we could start by just hearing a little bit from the three of you of about the communities that you live that you live in because North Carolina's really interesting diverse kind of changing place of on Gretchen you WanNa tell us a little bit about about Durham and and where you live and what it's been like. Sure so I actually live primarily I live in Raleigh but okay is not too far away and we call that like our research triangle area, the Raleigh Durham area I know in particular in Raleigh. Of course just as you say, we have a very diverse population and is just a mixture of things going on politically from our local races to, of course, the presidency vice-presidency. So it is a mixture of the two. As. Far as where people are leaning on ironically in my neighborhood like just thinking about my street in a pretty diverse street ethnicities, genders Cetera people with children no children age groups, but there's not one sign giving any kind of support or relation way or the other. which is very interesting but also I guess to a degree may be refreshing since they're probably a million of them elsewhere. Maybe people feel that you know once they come home they at least have an opportunity to kind of step away from it. Yeah. Yeah. We only to break for. Sure. Bill through new Bern I'll be honest I'm not familiar with new burns. Where is it in the state in? WHAT'S NEW BERN LINK Well. I'm about two hours east of Gretchen in about an hour from the coast New Bern is.

You're going to tell us the secret Best Barbecue place to go to or I know North Carolina. Barbecue is right up their they've places but what about shopping and restaurants in the various O- areas no sure so shopping's very prominent but In in all the areas particularly if those are interesting unique and now some of your mom and pop stores particularly something that rule areas you know so in some of those places you know you. Don't get the big brands big stores but you also JV to get that personal touch as some of those mom and pop stores from a local person who who makes I would From that particular area or someone who who makes Who who has their own honey? That's local or makes their own old soap. You know she'd be able to get things of that nature doing a local that a very unique to those particular locations out several different museums throughout the state. You know of course as we have our state Museum of history that has great A history of the state of North Carolina houses are Basketball Hall of fame. Sports Sports Hall of Fame A.. Aware of several different You know out West you have to build more which is part of one of our largest attractions historic attractions draws people a year round. But you know that that around that fall and Christmas is probably one of their high when it high parts of the season. But it's just wonderful wonderful aspect the Laura Christmas is awesome. It's just phenomenal. It's incredible it's just gorgeous for sure for sure absolutely absolutely and as far as the best barbecue I mean that's just you actually have to come in and and try that out for yourself because there's still a battle here go when eastern barbecue and then there's western barbecue acute and then there's Lexington Barbecue which is right in the middle so So it's it's real. It's a real interesting. But I'm a transplant to North Carolina West. Virginia been here about twelve years now and I just thought it was interesting. competition and see who has the best barbecue But I must I say this. I haven't eaten in one that I did like and I've eaten in several of yeah so Lexus Barbecue of done smokey's barbecue barbecue haired Mooresville twelve bones and Asheville which was actually one of the places that President Obama visited that when he was on his campaign trail. The first is campaign trail Since twelve bones is pretty. It's pretty popular out the Asheville area But there's there's several different Several different places throughout the state that You'd always you just have to come down and visit and And take your pick And just visit different areas and try to different types of barbecue then decide for yourself which where you like the best. Will you know. I'M A CERTIFIED MEMPHIS in May barbecue. Judge judge though. I'll be come come down and do a tour just of all the barbecue places. That sounds like a fun trip right there just without even looking at housing. Just just go to all the barbecue places but a lot of the people listening. Don't necessarily want an active adult community. They prefer maybe maybe a master planned community What kind of master planned communities are down there? I know you have to have a lot of land to be able to do those types of housing housing but what's the difference in the number of master planned communities versus active adult communities. Yeah what seems to be Quite a few for those Top nowadays because they're becoming so popular you do have the ones that are massive playing on a gated or their fifty five plus Somme have the clubhouse and have all the other amenities they're maintenance free You know so. We have seen some of the top companies. We have the Dale webs and the Toll Brothers locations Bill Clark owns one of ours. What is is is another one? Builders were in areas where a smoking homes and they attend a lot of the Travels on the retirement shows that we do about North Carolina as a as a good place for for retirement doc for retirees so we have several different those plans so anyone that's looking at the area can pretty much take their pick I know the Wilmington area is is is is pretty popular But a a lot of big companies are in the triangle area and while the chopper. He'll as well as the Charlotte all it area and even in in Asheville and and south of Asheville view and flat rock and Bavard areas or becoming pretty much bedroom communities for Asheville as well so there's several different places Those types of amenities that particular retiree could It could have their options as well. So what are some of the airports that people were GONNA fly in from out of state Whatever letter Airports that are close to like Raleigh versus Wilmington versus other places in the state. Sure so we have The Raleigh Door robot international airport here trying area It's international so those can fly in They also do direct flights even to France And and he England As well so that's one of the Charlotte Charlotte. Douglas Airport is probably our largest airport within the state But that's another the area where they can fly direct But we also have this one agree Greensboro Winston Salem area That also has international airport in Wilmington Comington actually has an international airport will and it's actually growing so there's only add more flights and more direct flights into into the warburton areas wellesz else but nobody has put Asheville regional airport so there's Greenville so there's several different places throughout the state to so one can can fly into and It's still be able to and not be far away from any of the areas apart up to visit. Sounds like they could come and stay for a week or so in check get out and still not have to drive too far to see a sample of all the different seasons and the areas and the beauty of Asheville versus the wonderful beaches. That you all have have so it sounds like a great trip is in store for a lot of people I know. I work with a lot of people moving to North Carolina and they can't get over the the prices is and the quality of living and just the more relaxed down there than it is up here because we have a bureaucracy and government and all that stuff but they moved down down there and they just said it's just so totally different so I really appreciate your coming on the show and talking to us about the entire state and if listeners sner want to get in touch with you to get more information please let them know right now your email address and how they can contact attack you and that way we can close up the show with giving him your expertise in an email address.

Always say once you get here. It's kind of hard to leave. Well that sounds great. Well I'll tell you I'm going to have to organize a trip tripped just for housing and then a second trip just for the barbecue because that's going to take quite a bit of time to taste test everything and figure it all out so that thou that'd be a whole nother trip for me. Thanks so much I will be there Andrei on and I do so. Appreciate your coming on the show talking about the entire state of North Carolina because I think it makes a difference when people are looking at one particular city they don't think about what's going on in the rest of the state so so it's good to have a good overview and I do appreciate your taking the time to join me today..

"Do you ever think will be named in a class action lawsuit of howler monkeys McKie's for how much we compare them to horrible like bad for howler monkeys like are we nation per se of howler monkeys and then to tell us about this one weird constitution that you're yeah. We have definitely defamed howler monkey Anki so I I I should. I should consider that that admission is a bad document Brian Delete. That file will be bad for our defense so you you you may you may recall that that when I was going through the gerrymandering decision I I pointed out that the numbers that the North Carolina Supreme Court had used to describe having a veto proof majority we were at sixty percent rather than two thirds or three quarters and that's true. It's not the weirdest prevision vision so okay so North Carolina says my just totally misinformed or isn't that how the United States Senate work. Don't you need sixty for no you need sixty photos later in the sense Yeah Yeah Yup Yup. I am just just mixing it up my fault that's okay so so this article article twenty two of the North Carolina Constitution and it says that if the if the state legislature passed a bill they sent to the governor's office if governor proves moves than the governor signs it the bill becomes law if not the governor shall return it with objections together with a veto message stating the reasons and for such objections to the House in which it shall have originated and like the US House of Representatives State State budget's originate in the State House in in North Carolina so goes back to the house which shall enter the objections and veto message on it's Journal and proceed to reconsider it and then here's the crucial provisions if after such reconsideration three-fifths of the members of that house else present and voting Shell agree to pass the bill it shall be sent to the other house where if approved by three fifths fs of the members of that House present in voting it shall become a law notwithstanding the objections of the governor so you see the keywords are are present and voting unlike the US House of Representatives where a no a No vote not present essentially counts as a no vote here to override the veto. You just need three-fifths of those present so technically you can override ada veto with thirty one percent of the legislature. That's like when you mess up some coating like you're trying to program something like Oh yeah that makes sense and then you come back later like I've made it such that if one person is there they know that can't write this we start to have a quorum and form has to be fifty percent plus one but yeah if you get fifty percent plus one and then three fifths of that which is exactly what what the Republicans did and as far as I can tell again have someone on and ask them they depict the Democrats into not showing up to go to a nine eleven memorial on September eleventh right being held at the governor's mansion again you know democratic photo op and then they said Oh yeah we totally pinky swear. We're not going to call an emergency session of the State House of Representatives while you're gone are they gone okay and then they called an emergency session and voted fifty five to nine to pass the budget which was an official session and met the three fifths requirement so it has now passed the North Carolina House of Representatives. It goes to the North Carolina Senate now. The North Carolina Senate is a is not a veto proof majority there is one Democrat that hangs in the balance and so don't go to any memorials so so remember this rally because we've we've talked about The for example the on the Cavanaugh vote and I forget which democratic member of the Senate agreed sluggish the deal because somebody needs to go visit their dying because we are young yeah right and so you know when when they talk about civility and norms remember this okay because because that's correct it is now the case in North Carolina that you you you can't miss votes right. If if that one Democrat isn't there there at on the day in which they call the vote they can probably get you know to two to three fifths with just the Republicans right so you have have to you have to pick a day in which one or two Democrats are out and your entire Republican contingents is in and that assumes by the way that there isn't you know a Joe Mansion in the North Carolina State Senate I don't know the answer to that but you know they may be able to pick off a state senator anyway I would hope that the shocking underhandedness dirty trickery might mean that the Democrats that's are able to pick off Republican members of the Senate and and and protect themselves but but again we're gonNA find out those answers hopefully next week but but yes this is the rare case in which the hyperbolic headlines that you've read are one hundred percent correct what do to this one weird provision in the North Carolina Constitution where you only three-fifths of those present plus depravity and just disgusting behavior by Republicans also this one weird trick plus just awful people willing to exploit a nine eleven memorial to get their Yup agenda through wow never forget wow all right well. Thanks that breakdown I yeah that is so headlines were accurate and that one which is important to note because not always true but in this case they were true okay. Are we ready. Are you ready to talk brexit swine. He got his feet and robbing people's time sees with the same policies privatize the assassin. Do the pants off. Let's Talk Brexit Yeah. I feel like this is a little weird. I feel like Boris. Johnson is running into the brick wall that everybody runs into over there when they try to do something that is impossible which is make everybody happy in on the brexit question. this this I would what what what angle did you wanNA cover on this because I don't really think that we've have we covered brexit before. Is this the first time we've done it in any depth at the angle I wanted to discuss is as this show is being released September seventeenth Tuesday September seventeenth the UK Supreme Supreme Court is considering the justiciability of a particular question involving proroguing the British dish parliament. I learned what all this stuff is and so I can't wait to share it with everyone and I can't wait for the billion Andrew was wrong well. I'm pro rogue in general but how does as just as D. and D. Class. Maybe can I sure alcocer this on the air. you know twenty percent of our audience will find it hilarious eighty percent you can skip ahead sixty seconds as a result of the puzzle and thunderstorm drive there is a ah game AH DND game that that is being met for one of the one of the patriotic downdraft I'm not I'm not in it to play because my schedule wouldn't permit and I just WanNa point out that in that. Da Game Noah is playing he gnome illusionist solution. I I just find that so funny southern anyway that's my dnd here today. Yeah enjoyed that it was worth okay back to back to our show so here's what's going on to the best of my abilities to understand Brexit as we all know is racist racist and terrible and stupid in addition. Have you seen the the John Oliver on Boris Johnson. I I know you're there yeah yeah me too I and on pretty good authority that has at least someone on his writing staff listens to this show they did a fantastic job and and so that that last week tonight painted Boris Johnson is essentially a craftier donald trump right it was it was pretty I opening so the deadline for the British leave from the European European Union is October thirty first and the the real issue right now is my understanding is that it everyone agrees that outside of cranks even among the conservatives even among Pro Brexit brexit folks who were still pro brexit despite the fact that there doesn't seem to be good reason to to still be pro brexit that there must be some kind of transition period period and part of those reasons that that I can find our number one that that laws that currently exist that that prescribe IBE regulate with respect to goods that are in the European Union have to be re codified to apply only within the United Kingdom right otherwise there will be tremendous uncertainty and number two existing contracts same right so in other words and and I and I know that there's more and I and I started to read that but it is kind of taken as read that allowing in October thirty first to to to to come and go and just pulling the UK out of the European Union would be a disaster and no one wants that and so what has taken down the last two British prime ministers is the failure of of the coalition government led by the Conservatives to come up with an appropriate transition plan to implement brexit it did take out or was I thought the first one was brexit itself took yeah yeah yeah yeah okay but as we're as we're getting down to the wire it's sort of like the the footloose tractor chicken sequence rights. It's a very very slow game of chicken and someone one will blink because the the alternative is a disaster and so well and it's such a contradiction you know the the the problem. Is You know yes. The people did end up. Voting for Brexit is margin but there was no detail. I think it's interesting to consider sort of mathematically. It's almost the brexit or no brexit question was kind of unfair. It should have been brexit with a deal or brexit with this deal or Brexit exit with that deal or whatever versus staying in and and because those were all blended into something called Brexit it passed and yet there that didn't really nobody knew what that meant. You know nobody knew what those terms would be and what I think is interesting about the situation. It's and it's annoying. Winging its add is that someone like Boris Johnson and and who knows how many others there could be. I think any smart person I would think any informed born person would realize that what people want to have happen. What Br Exeter's want have happened? Just can't have like is a contradiction. You can't have everything you want here. There's just no way that the EU who is going to agree to it there's no there's nothing in it for them to like give the UK a great deal on their brexit because all that would do is incentivize other countries to leave and get a good deal and it doesn't make any sense but Boris Johnson's been able to bluster his way and just kind of bluff his way into saying. Oh no I I could do it. This is great. I can definitely really do that and then enough people believe him and now he's in power and then he's GonNa run into the same problems that everybody's running into and it's a horrible mess. Yeah that's exactly right and so- Boris Johnson came up with this plan from the idea was if I can take parliament off the table right if if I can make them not be able to meet not be able to propose solutions not be able to evaluate my plan.

Then and what happened was the massively gerrymandered republican state legislature in two thousand sixteen the same when we talked about last week right that the State State Supreme Court has struck down the redistricting twice they called an emergency session they did so under grossly sleep pre textual circumstances and they passed a raft of bills rather like the ones that we talked about in Wisconsin Yeah Right Yeah uh-huh they were designed to strip power away from the incoming Cooper Administration so the Cooper administration has basically been then a holding action against the republican state legislature and I I wanNA sidebar in that a little bit again. You know we'll we'll ask our guest next week so Democrats have been fighting as and as we point out we're going to replicate these fights in Wisconsin in Florida in you know in in the states in which the Republicans have tried to maintain power our in places where they've lost elections in some to some extent they've been successful right so for example one of the bills that passed in that session put changed changed the board of elections which is a state executive agency and transferred jurisdiction under the State House of Representatives representatives right so taking it away from the Democrats and to the Republicans and that was ruled unconstitutional the gerrymandering was ruled unconstitutional and as we pointed out despite the fact that the state is grotesquely gerrymandered into favorable district's for Republicans the Democrats Kratz statewide were able to deprive the Republicans of their veto proof majority in the in both houses so even though massive uphill battle Democrats were able to win that up uphill battle so so as a result we now have a total deadlock in North Carolina right. You have a howler monkey state eight legislature that can't pass its own laws because they no longer have a veto proof majority and part of the sidebar that I want to say is you know when we talk about fighting holding actions when we talk about like what can you run on running on. Hey those guys tried to steal elections and do bad stuff and were stopping them. seems to have worked for Democrats in North Carolina Right it it there there are very few accomplishments that the Cooper Administration can point to because of the gridlock but the democratic share uh of the the state statewide of running for the state legislature. went up in two thousand eighteen so you know that seems to be some empirical evidence that in an area that certainly has a lot of conservative folks that is a slightly Republican but not nearly as Republican as gerrymandering makes it seem state that you know just running on those guys are awful and we're trying to stop them. Help us continue to do that. is has salience with with voter so I'm encouraged by that so this is about the budget the Howler Monkey Congress passed a budget's terrible budget and governor Cooper vetoed North Carolina Severi fairy weird constitution. Let's pause and find lying down weird..
"north carolina" Discussed on CNN's The Daily DC
"Hey everyone I'm David Chalian the CNN political director and this is the daily DC. Thanks so much for listening today on the podcast North Carolina's Redo due election. You all may remember that in the aftermath of the two thousand eighteen midterms as the Democrats were counting up their forty seats that they took from Republicans in order to win the majority and delivered the speakership to Nancy Pelosi there was this one race in North Carolina's Ninth Congressional district that the Board of elections down there would refuse to certify because of voter fraud there was ballot harvesting going on it was since exposed exposed as to what was happening there in North Carolina with early absentee ballots and the board of Elections was able Oh to institute a Redo election and that is what is taking place today in the Ninth Congressional District There's also an election in the third congressional district North Carolina though that's that's not garnering many headlines because that's very safe. Republican territory and not really contested that special election due to the vague due to a vacancy this North Carolina Redo election damn McCreevy the Democrat. He is a moderate Democrat put his military service front and center in his biography and running this race put healthcare front and Center and here he is in a district that Donald Trump won by twelve points in two thousand sixteen. This is sort of the model of how Democrats put together the big victory that they had in two thousand eighteen. This kind of place go to a trump district tricked. Put forward a moderate. Maybe they have military credentials to put forward run on healthcare don't get consumed by the trump noise and chaos and bank on some trump backlash among suburbanites and independence and see if you could get over the top now mccreadie in that twenty eighteen election that was fraudulent came up just short against the Republican well here. It is a new Republican candidate. Dan Bishop he became famous in North Carolina political circles for being the author of the so-called Bathroom Bill in North Carolina dealing with Trans transgender bathrooms so you've bishop versus McCreevy now. Why do we care about this one congressional race on Tuesday in September of an off year. Here's why we care first of all you may have noticed the president the United States and the Vice President United States travel down to North Carolina yesterday both of them their in state to try and get the base as motivated as possible people to turn out and vote today. That's how important Republicans see holding onto this Republican seat. That's how important is send the president and vice president in there that you don't do that. Willy Nilly that is that is a huge investment of resources time of their most precious asset the united the United States who has the unbelievable ability to connect with the base that they are looking to motivate to get out and vote so that's how that's how sort of all early in the trump team the RNC. The party is on this race on the democratic side of course in a heavily Republican district. You don't see a ton of democratic. Nick National Democratic surrogates going down there in North Carolina the lots of the presidential candidates of raise money your tweeted support for McCreevy the things that I think you can watch for tonight. I mean the there's only so much you can extrapolate right. If the Democrats somehow win this seat in district they have no business even competing in and that is going to send a chill down the spine of everyone at trump campaign headquarters that the beating the Republican Party took in two thousand eighteen in the midterms is is not over yet. That's not where they want to be as they're turning the corner into the president's reelection year would they are hoping for is sort of a signal that that drubbing from Democrats has is over that that was a twenty eighteen isolated phenomenon and that things things are returning to normal and that Republicans fear not can win. Republican districts even with a extraordinarily well financed Democrat with a good resume that may fit the district even in those circumstances they can still win their turf margins will matter here right. I mean like I said Donald Trump wanted by twelve points if the Republican seeks this out by a point or two. I don't think you're going to have a ton of comfort in trump campaign headquarters though there will be a sigh of relief of victory is a victory three and they'll be happy to hold the seat remember. They lose this seat. The Republicans their battle back to the majority becomes you know one-seat further away that they're going to have to battle back in two thousand twenty s as president trump put his rally last night he sees this is the first test and the first step on the way to firing. Nancy Pelosi Speaker of the house awesome told the troops of the faithful down there in North Carolina polls closed at seven thirty pm eastern as they come in there four counties across this distric work so Mecklenburg County is sort of the McCreevy Base County. He wanted by ten points last year. This is Charlotte the surrounding area and Cumberland counties the other county though much more competitive where mccreadie edged out Harrison twenty eighteen union and blading counties and blading county. Johnny is where most of the ballot fraud took place. We will look to see if there's any stink of that scandal on the Republican Dan Bishop that's running even though he he wasn't involved in that and what's in any way whatsoever not the Harris campaign and their handling of it is there any sort of stink of that hangs on him just by being the Republican Publican nominee but look for bishop to run up the score big time in Union blading counties and we'll see if McCreevy is over performing his own twenty eighteen take of the vote or he's underperforming that I think that's a key thing to watch as as the returns are are coming in you'll have an early early signal perhaps as to whether or not this this will be competitive all the pre-election polling indicates. It's a margin of error race but again. These is a district Democrats. Kratz shouldn't even have on their wishlist it is only because of Donald Trump's handling of himself in the office and the pushing away of independent voters of suburbanites that makes this even an opportunity with the right kind of Democrat mccreadie to make a competitive and that is the other big lesson. Listen here watch the suburbs watch that that it is going to be fascinating to see if if Donald Trump is bringing any of that back into his fold you hear me saying this podcast all the time. I am constantly looking for where Donald Trump is trying to broaden his current current reach and it is very difficult to find that electorally politically day to day in the trump administration. It is such a committed strategy to she relying on just driving. Republican turnout embrace areas so high that would ever erosion exists in the suburbs or in the democratic areas as of any given district or state that the overwhelming Republican turnout will bring Donald Trump to the promised land that is what we're sort of looking for tonight and end this will be a test case about whether or not politically in terms of the political environment you know is this district in North Carolina still in the mood of a trump backlash or are they turning the corner and reverting to form a is I think the big question tonight and no doubt both sides will be in spin mode as soon as the results are known you can watch the results come in on CNN dot com tune into into CNN television. We'll have live analysis throughout the night and we will see what lessons are learned when you join us here tomorrow. That does it for this edition of the daily. DC thank you all so much for listening hope. You'll tune in again right here tomorrow. Are you interested in learning how great companies grow.

"You're going to have to write it in an attentive way because the court above you might come come to a different conclusion so <hes> so this would be a good a good case to go straight up to the state supreme and <hes> and we'll see if it happens <hes> i want to also tell you we've talked about the jurisprudence. I want to tell you the practical consequences as well. This is a state trial court decision and the judge in this case denied a stay of the mandate pending appeal so immediately <hes> the mandate has issued issued to go out and for the legislature to redraw these maps as an as a consequence of that the court again noting the bad faith by the republicans <hes>. I've never seen this before they they're. They're like well half stellar. Whatever he's dead. So how do we do. We go to even do this whole fowler n._f._l. On the court notes that they quote retain jurisdiction ariss diction to move the march third twenty twenty primary date in the event that <hes> the the legislature is unable able to comply with the requirements of the court to redraw the district in a non <hes> politically gerrymandered way <hes> that's you you know we talk about sternly worded letters when the court says i find i'm gonna move your election. That's that's more sternly worded needed than <hes> than you usually get so so no injunction <hes> on appeal the the republicans. The state legislature are they're. They're going to ask for a stay on appeal <hes> but because they don't have one they're going to have to meet the same requirements as you know was getting any kind of injunctive relief right <hes> which involve showing a substantial likelihood of success on the merits there is no way. I don't see how you can get you. You can demonstrate a substantial likelihood of success on the merits of something that everybody agrees is an unresolved question right i. I don't know how how you write that brief. That doesn't lead to you know the the respondent's writing a brief that says look we all know this question is unsettled. If if it's unsettled by definition you can't prove that you were substantially likely to prevail before the state supreme court and so i i don't think they're going to get an injunction shen and <hes> and and i think the north carolina state legislative maps are going to be redrawn and they're going to be redrawn in a way a <hes> that that opens it up in a way that will expand fairness expand access for democrats make the state more representative of the population population which is fifty one forty nine fifty to forty eight <hes> republican right. It is not a bright red state. This is not idaho. I'm using idaho intentionally there. <hes> <hes> it is <hes> it's a it's a it's an evenly split or just about evenly split state <hes> and yet <hes> and it is one one of a dozen in which <hes> the <hes> despite the the makeup of the population gerrymandering has led to <hes> an institutional advantage for republicans so look great opinion good result and i think this could be the blueprint as as the as the judge notes the other states have a provision in their state bills of rights <hes> that that track the <hes> the free elections clause in north carolina so <hes> <hes> i expect that citizens for responsibility and ethics in washington right i expect a common cause <hes> that that groups oops that oppose mandate <hes> the the groups that oppose gerrymandering will <hes> will bring similar lawsuits in similar states and you know we may see the activism kind of shift down to the state level so good news okay but we that kind of goes against our fight fire with fire theory so it's like i'm and what is happening in a slightly republican controlled state but for any <hes> democrat controlled states. Let's just gerrymander. Look we still should right like at the you know..

"<hes> is because it violates the rights of freedom of speech and assembly that are contained in the freedom most speech clause article one section fourteen of the north carolina constitution <hes> this is i think this is the weakest argument <hes> this argument was advanced advanced gerrymandering cases as well <hes> the the north carolina clause is different than the first amendment it says freedom of speech and of the press are the are are two of the great bulwarks of liberty and therefore shall never be restrained <hes> so it's not quite the same language as as the first amendment <hes> and and <hes> and the freedom of assembly clause says the people have a right to assemble together to consult for their common good to instruct their representatives and to apply to the general assembly for redress of if grievances <hes> that becomes a slightly better argument because of the phrase to instruct their representatives <hes> and so again you know if you are looking at these provisions in the bill of rights and saying if they mean anything right the right to instruct your representatives well oh okay i can see how gerrymandering gerrymandering <hes> interferes with your right to assemble to then instructor representatives it. It's actually the other way around. It is your representatives designing xining a district <hes> so that they can stay in power so <hes> so this is an interesting and and kind of more sporadic the the the free speech argument is you know voting is a form of expression and <hes> i'm less sanguine about that as an argument <hes> i don't think voting is a form of expression but nevertheless this this opinion then <hes> gives multiple justifications for striking down the legislative districts and again remember. This is a state trial court judge so this is going to go up to the intermediate appellate courts i if my supposition on this is <hes> we we have talked about bypass or shiro before <hes> that is the either the the u._s. or state supreme court going down then getting a decision without going through the intermediate appellate process. That's a very very rare thing along. It's becoming more used at at the supreme court level which we've talked about <hes> as as this active supreme court is trying to evade negative decisions in more liberal jurisdictions <hes> but at the state level. It's a pretty rare thing to do. I it would not surprise so. I can't predict i can't say i think it's more likely than not that this case will get <hes> bypassed. All the way up to the north carolina state supreme court <hes> but this is as good a case as any. I need to think that that might happen <hes> in terms of prediction so i would not be surprised to see this decision instantly <hes> taken up by by the new york state supreme court to way because i you know i mean think about it. If you're on the the intermediate appellate court right you know this question and has not been squarely addressed by the the state supreme court and so whatever decision you right..

"This is the north carolina court sang in in addition to violating article one section ten the free elections provision it also violates the north carolina equal protection clause right so again in its constitution north carolina has a provision requiring equal protection under the laws that tracks the language of the fourteenth amendment and so this argument is a little different right and this is again you will recognize this as being similar to the argument that the kansas the supreme court used which is yeah our state equal protection clause uses the same words as the federal equal protection clause clause so we can look to supreme court interpretations as <hes> as guidance <hes> but we don't have to follow the supreme court. We're not bound and by what the u._s. Supreme court says the fourteenth amendment means were free to say that it means something different in the state of north carolina and that is in fact with this court says here says north carolina's equal protection clause provides greater protection for voting rights than federal federal equal protection provisions north carolina courts can end do interpret even identical terms in the states constitution more broadly than their federal federal counterparts <hes> and so here right this argument. I think is <hes> akin to the made the analogy right right. It's a kind of a kansas abortion decision. <hes> it in in some ways. It's a stronger argument because there are more case salutations that <hes> that demonstrate overtime how north carolina has not the the the latin phrases read in pari materia and and it means to read a provision the same as <hes> as as another provision right so for a very very long time <hes> and and still kind of the majority rule most courts when you have an identical statute or constitutional provisions in the state eight that replicates a federal law or federal constitutional provision they will say yeah we read those too in part materia whatever the federal whatever over the supreme court says <hes> equal protection under the law means we think it means that way in north carolina as well but there are a lot of exceptions and the the notion in that state is not bound to that is pretty well established. The only downside is you you you do have to kind of <hes> you so you have to differentiate <hes> and and distinguish the operative supreme court decisions. That's not hard here because the root show decision. Addition is so terrible <hes> it. I mean we you know we went through. It and it's not just terrible in terms of its result right. It's terrible in terms terms of its internal logic right the most obvious being that at the root show decision ruled that partisan gerrymandering claims are not just icial their political and the opinion says well. You know you've got a problem with your politics. Then you know go take it up through the political process how ever right out yeah i and that is it is so transparently moccoli laughably ridiculous <hes> that that i think we're going to see state supreme courts <hes> distinguish that and say we you know while while we are of course bound to follow route to the extent that it applies <hes> you know to any <hes> you know to any decision within within the state we.

"The free elections provision it looks like is it is somewhat clear from from the history of north carolina jurisprudence <hes> that <hes> <hes> that that an individual can locate some right some affirmative right to have their vote count in this section ten that says election action shall be free. We're concept yeah so but federally we have no guarantee there but we are not absolutely and and i wanna point we now i mean let me i was explaining how this court is interpreting state constitutional law they they do admit right. This is directly from the opinion. The broad language of the free elections clause has not heretofore been extensively interpreted by pellet courts so in other words right right. This is somewhat new ground that this decision is is breaking <hes> and for that reason bright could get overturned at the appellate level <hes> they're they are conceding on this first point the free elections clause point that there's not a lot of law on it <hes> but but i will but i will tell you this the the underlying argument on this on the free elections clause is a pretty good argument right the idea idea is well that klaus has to mean something right and and so if it means anything right <hes> it means means that extreme partisan gerrymandering ken quoting from the decision redistricting plans that entrenched politicians in power that evidence a a fundamental distrust of voters by serving the self interest of political parties over the public good and that dilute and devalue votes of some citizens compared to others. There's is contrary to the fundamental right of north carolina citizens to have elections conducted freely and honestly to ascertain fairly and truthfully the will of the people. That's not a bad argument <hes> so well put too yeah so that's point one point. One is this violates violates a specific provisions that is in the north carolina constitution <hes> and it's in other state constitutions <hes> but not the federal before we get to point to why why don't we take a quick break and then we will find out what point to this cliffhanger opening arguments is brought to you by joi bird summer is the time under relax and enjoy the best in life and you can do it right from your own home whether you're throwing a backyard barbecue and ice cream.

"How can the north carolina court conclude that this is impermissible gerrymandering. The answer is the same way that the kansas state supreme court could find broader protections for the right to abortion under the kansas. It's a state constitution then in the u._s. Constitution so page two hundred two is where the legal analysis here begins. It starts off again. I'm gonna hit the high points <hes> it. It starts off by by noting that standing under north carolina law is is more broad than under federal law and then there's a lengthy discussion of rubio this <hes> begins begins a page to ninety eight paragraph nineteen and it says <hes> basically it says rubio's a terrible decision it says <hes> the supreme court noted all of these problems with blatant examples of partisanship driving districting decisions and that the congressional maps in that case were quote highly partisan by any measure and of quote and then kind of dryly it says nonetheless supreme court concluded in the majority opinion that partisan partisan gerrymandering claims and this is quoting from present political questions beyond the reach of the federal courts and then the attala cise federal and it gets that little citation that says has emphasis added and their arguments well. That's great and all <hes> you're not in federal court. You're in state court and we are free to note note that the north carolina state constitution offers more protections and is more expensive than the federal constitution so they located hated. Those protections in in three major areas andy a each of these. I think are really really interesting right so first north carolina china their their declaration of rights article one section ten of their state constitution has a free elections clause it says quote all elections shins shall be free and and the trial court here says the free elections clauses one of those clauses that makes the north carolina constitution more detailed and more specific specific than the federal constitution in the protection of the rights of its citizens <hes> the u._s. Constitution doesn't have a free elections clause although several other state constitutions russians do what does what does that mean exactly free. <hes> does that entail. That's the whole law. That's the whole wording is just the election is is free so yeah. Here's here's here's the way to think about this. The north carolina state constitution has a preamble right preamble but we the people of the state of north carolina <hes> for the preservation of the american union and the existence of our civil political and religious liberties you know there's a reference of being grateful to almighty god god whatever do for the more certain security thereof and for the government of the state or dane and establish this constitution and then article one is the declaration of rights so it's the north carolina equivalent of the federal bill of rights and like the federal bill of rights these are positions of principle right they they're short statements that say we ought to be self evident that all persons are created equal right all political powers vested in and derived from the people and all government of originates from the people is founded upon their will only is instituted solely for the good of the whole that was section to for example <hes> and so section ten just says it's called free elections and it says all elections shall be free what it means by free then gets interpreted rated bhai state case law in in the same way that what the first amendment reads when it says the freedom of the press shall not be bridge right what what freedom of the press means is defined by supreme court case law well similarly broad principles <hes> get explicatives it over time <hes> in state supreme court jurisprudence and the free elections provision it looks like is it is somewhat clear from from the history of north carolina jurisprudence <hes> that <hes> <hes> that that an individual can locate some right some affirmative right.

Feller quote was very fluent in being able to help legislators translate their desires into the district lines using the program that he's developed which was called map to tude food so <hes> so yeah so they <hes> they hired the guy who wrote the who who drew the horribly racist gerrymandered districts and said look can can you help bus do this so that it's and for racist yeah <hes> but we'll totally benefit. Republicans hope fowler met with republicans in private. They refused to allow him to be called to testify before the state house and the key finding is that ho- feller had been drawing republican district like this guy is like a you know is like the the guy who preps for the fantasy football league starting in april right. You know who watches the n._f._l. Draft when this guy had been drawing majority republican district mannar district four the supreme prem- court issued its ruling right and the republican party in north carolina lied about right because as you as you might imagine doing italian in restaurant and he's like you can ask them.

Hey how can we expand on <hes> you know act lays right <hes> still still gerrymander but pass muster with this <hes> you know obviously <hes> right wing supreme court and in open court <hes> the republican party in north carolina said oh no he absolutely we had him draw brand new district and <hes> and yes we we did it to benefit republicans but absolutely not you know to <hes> to to penalize us that it was not racial. It's just totally totally for republicans right and i'm gonna address that in a minute but but i wanna point out this is this is pretty rare and i don't know that anyone else's talked about it because it's buried on page aged two hundred ninety of of opinion paragraph seven hundred and four it says this court is troubled by representations made by legislative defendants that means the republicans skins or attorneys working on their behalf in briefs and arguments to covington court that was the district court that that found racial gerrymandering and to general assembly colleagues committee meetings that affirmatively stated that no draft maps had been prepared even as late as august fourth two thousand seventeen and then there's stone tawny of citations. They did it over and over again. They said nope no maps. No maps no maps not true and then the court says for the purposes of determining liability for the claims asserted in this litigation the court finds it unnecessary to delve further into these concerns other than to note that this court as previously stated is persuaded traded and specifically finds that dr ho fellers intent and actions as evidence to his map-drawing process from at least early june of two thousand seventeen are attributable in mm full to the legislative defendants that's again judges tend not to speak this way and they tend not to call out individuals and their lawyers i four lying to them in opinions and <hes> and you can see this this court saying look you. You guys lied to us. Oh you you had a secret plan and you stated under oath in open court. No we don't and that's troubling to say the least so as you pointed out that the reason for this lie is because the north carolina republican strategy was to say was to follow what ultimately happened. I mean they were sort of predicting that. The supreme court would do what it did in rubio which the handwriting in writing was on the wall as soon as as brad kavanagh replaced anthony kennedy to say yup political gerrymandering is just fine and and so that's what they did they <hes> the evidence is is virtually undisputed <hes> they drew the maps for partisan gain so now if that's the fact acts if those are the facts..
