Report: Trump 2016 Campaign Sought To Dissuade Blacks From Voting, Listed Millions For ‘Deterrence’

"Over three million black voters in key states what identified by Donald. Trump's twenty sixteen campaign as people they had to persuade to stay home on election day to help him reach the White House. The revelation comes from an enormous data leak obtained by the respected British public broadcaster Channel Four News. It shows that four years ago the trump campaign prepared files on almost two hundred million American voters and separated some out into eight different categories. One such category assigns to three and a half million black voters was titled Deterrents. The leaked database was reportedly used by trump's digital campaign team, which was critical to trump's narrow victory. Channel phone use has a track record of exposing the unethical practices of Cambridge Analytica the now defunct British digital black ops firm that harvested the facebook data of tens of millions of voters for the use of team trump. The leaked files show that black Americans would disproportionately marked deterrents by the two thousand sixteen campaign making up far more of the category when compared to general population stance in Georgia black people make up around a third of the population but sixty one percent of the trump campaign's deterrence category they're. The same pattern can be seen in data for North Carolina and Wisconsin. Overall people of color labeled by the campaign is black, Hispanic. Asian. And other groups made up fifty four percent of the people in the deterrents category in contrast the list of voters that the campaign wanted to encourage head out to vote were mostly white. It's impossible to say how effective tactics were but research shows that in twenty sixteen black turnout fell eight points. The data does not offer a complete picture of exactly how the deterrents list was exploited though it's likely that it was used to help the campaign microtarget people on facebook in the months leading up to election day in two thousand sixteen.

Mark Meadows Speaks with Reporters

"Today outside the White House chief of staff Mark Meadows spoke to reporters for a little over 10 minutes on issues, including the replacing Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the U. S. Supreme Court. The president said he needs nine Justice Supreme Court election challenge because he asked me of potential nominees how they will vote. No, he hasn't. Actually I've been in those interviews and I could tell you it would be inappropriate for us Ask those kinds of questions. I think his comments were more just an indication that we need a a full panel on the Supreme Court. You don't want to ever provide a a situation where there could be Tie a 44 ty not to suggest that this should be a 44 tie. I think it should be more of a unanimous decision on some of the facts that I have seen. But obviously I'm not a justice. They would have to hear That case would be highly inappropriate. We wouldn't want to ask a question that would perhaps for some potential nominee to recuse themselves. Should they have to hear this waste but with him out there, saying he needs to have this justice because there might be a challenge. That create bags of a conflict of interest for whoever you well, I know no more than any other judge that has been nominated by Donald Trump or Barack Obama or anybody else. I mean to suggest that just because they were nominated by somebody that they would have an inherent bias, I think we've seen from the court rulings already by the Supreme Court. They're an independent body, and they don't necessarily vote the way that you might think they should. I can tell you that That particular issue is eyes, Probably the least of potential nominees. Worries that it makes you effective profits were kind of expecting a second question. The president will have confidence. I can't speak to the second question in terms of the confidence in director Ray, I can tell you that I was Very, very disappointed to see some of the text messages and emails that came out yesterday. And some of the discovery that was put for from my previous job is a member of Congress. I know that I've asked for exactly those kinds of documents and never got them on that was under the previous director and also under this director on so it is time for direct array to quit in my mind playing footsie with transparency and Deliver those documents. The second part of your question was more that I think. Well, I think if past is prologue, I mean, we've got all kinds of indications that the Democrats are. We're going to use the next 30 days to try Tio shame. Whatever nominee we put four for their faith for their record for who they are, and Troubling. I mean, we've got it. We see even today that way don't have AH continuing resolution passed because Chuck Schumer is playing games with procedural aspect based on a potential nominee. We took down a election security hearing today because Chuck Schumer's playing games that's minor. That's that's child's play compared to what we will see over the next 30 days, But we're prepared for the fight. What we will see is, I think Be thorough Vetting but hopefully done in expeditious way way. I didn't say it was Judge Merrick Isa. Good leading question. You can say that the president's confidence in director, I haven't talked to him about it. Well, I can tell you that we have a number of people that continue to serve at the pleasure of the president that he has different degrees of confidence in on DSo Tio directly speak to that question. Without actually talking to him would be inappropriate about healthcare. Big announcement guys today the president wanted to executive orders now the U. S government policy that preexisting conditions should be protected. Forced the affordable care act right now is that five lost? What are Americans make policy of already existing protection? Well, Peter, you as you know, there's a court case going through as it relates to the affordable care act and what the president Wanted to make sure I was clear not once not twice. But now a third time in signing that executive order is to make sure that preexisting conditions are covered that insurance companies can price people out of their coverage just because of the illness that they have or could have come down with, And it was just a commitment and say that if the court strike that down any future legislation under a Trump administration would guarantee that preexisting conditions are covered. And so From his perspective, It's just trying to make sure that the message is clear. He's been very clear in the Oval Office, You know, Sometimes the campaign rhetoric in the ads that get place do not match the private conversations in the Oval. White House chief of staff Mark Meadows outside the White House earlier today. Scepticism of some because obviously the president president for four years, But they say that it's that they should be protected his only a policy. It's not along. We've never seen a plan. Peter, this is not your first rodeo. And you know how Congress has the inordinate and unbelievable ability to obstruct, especially when you have a divided Congress. I don't know of a single Democrat that would be willing to take down on Obama care piece of legislation haven't served in the car. It's almost like they're Holy grail. Now they'll admit there's all kinds of flaws and all kinds of problems with it that they won't fix, but they won't repeal it. And so it's all about making sure that the message to the American people gets covered. One of the interesting things that no one seems to be picking up on too much. Well, is the $200 copay that's actually is going it is coming from the savings from the executive order on most favored nation big farmer would push back on that. Pushback on that, But we're going to be able to save tens of billions of dollars were actually going to use a demo. Ah, demo for to be Medicaid CMS demo project that will actually allow us to use about $7 billion to pay for those. But those will be offset with savings from from Pharma as we enacted most favorite nation, money way have we have a 10 year? Window on that for those savings, and we're actually working on those final rules. Those proposed rules now to put forth But just like the Obama administration used the same program in the previous administration were going to use it now to make sure that seniors get the benefit of those savings today and that they don't have to wait for those you already prepping initial Supreme Court nominee for confirmation questions and Wilder wise guy sort of Urfa. Person around Capitol Hill with numbers on DSO in terms of prepping any particular nominee that we have. No, we have not started prepping those. We won't until the nomination is full on I see me mean by wise guy could be wise guy or a gal, a cz, a Sherpa, and so as we wait guys in a plural and generic sense I would have seen on so as we look at that. I don't know that we'll be using Sherpa as much we've been working with leader McConnell, in a very direct way of had daily conversations would leader McConnell a number of senators because of covert and the inability of senators to actually engage more on a office by office faces? We're looking at modifying that if there is a need for a Sherpa, we've actually have asked the leader for some recommendations. There were certainly open to that. But I think next week what you'll see Is Patsy polonium myself, making sure that we make the nominee available to a wide variety of senators. Political question. You aware that Amy Kony's merit worked on foot vs board and you know what was her role? Apparently, she was in Florida working for Stuart Levey. According to her question. Yeah, I I'm certainly aware of every nominees record, whether it's Amy Comey, Barrett or anybody else. I can't say I don't think that this is a hanging Chad problem. This's more a mail in ballot. Unsolicited mail in ballot with delays in collection of those ballot issue. Hopefully, we're not gonna have a hanging Chad problem when my last question was president, felling three of your quote, By the way, I think you owe guide okay. Yeah, that sounds like a good stand. Wise wise guys. Okay, campaign. Apparently, the RNC are telling Republican voters essentially that they need To vote absentee necessary. Isn't that sort of out of line with the president's message going to be male in front? And I mean, I think absentee ballots if they've got a normal process, perhaps auntie ballots like we had in North Carolina. I don't know that that process is one that is new or different. I can't speak to every state. All I can speak to is North Carolina, but but I can't. Say you that solicited ballads with absentee requests or certainly something that has been the norm eyes the unsolicited ballots mailing to ever registered voter that he has a bigger problem with and that most Americans should have a problem with that theory is she's been radio programming from Friday. Well, I don't know That's how I'm basing the acceptance. Of the election here is a valid point here is what we want to make. Sure of is that laws are not changed by a few judges making it like in North Carolina consent decree. Don't change the laws that are on the books just so that you can extend the election time. Most states, North Carolina and others have a very long time for them to be able to cast their ballots either in person or by mail leading up to November. 3rd s O to suggest that we should have November 3rd. It's a week plus two weeks like has been mentioned in some states is not. There is not something that I think is necessary. The other is is when you have secretaries of states in a partisan manner, potentially certifying election results. We want to make sure that they do this on on away that's credible and they can with stand the scrutiny of of the public eye on allow a partisan process to get in. I don't know if you're following what's happened. In North Carolina. But it's very troubling where you have a a Democrat group, filing suit against a Democrat, Board of elections and then doing a consent decree. That's not what the American judicial system is all about. It's in my opinion gaming the system. Hopefully, that judge will not go ahead with that consent decree but is very problematic and it disenfranchises voters whether they're Republican, unaffiliated or Democrat. We want to make sure every vote counts. But We want to make sure that on ly one vote count ceremony, I I'm I'm assuming that we were invited. I don't know about the best. You know the invite list. Obviously, yesterday we wanted to make sure before he left town. He paid respects and so way actually adjusted his schedule so that he could do that. Yesterday I travelled with him and, as you know, way made that a priority. Thanks, guys. White House Chief of staff Mark Meadows outside the White House this morning,

White House chief of staff contradicts FBI director on voter fraud

"Mark Meadows is criticizing FBI director Christopher Wray over his testimony to Congress that he has not seen evidence of widespread voter fraud in a major election, with all due Specter, Director Ray he has a hard time finding emails in his own FBI let alone of figuring out whether there's any kind of voter fraud. This is a very different case. The rules are being changed, and so what? What I'm suggesting is perhaps he could drill down on the investigation that just started Meadow, speaking on CBS this morning, pointing to North Carolina and other places where he says duplicate ballots are being sent out. Rays testimony when against President Trump's message that an expansion Of mail in voting would invite widespread fraud in the election Experts say there is no evidence of meaningful voter fraud in mail in voting for two days in a row. The president has also refused to commit to a peaceful transfer of power should he lose in November, Meadow says the president will commit as long as the election is fair.

No, you can't actually vote twice

"Earlier this month email heard president trump in North Carolina. He was encouraging people to vote in person after also mailing in a ballot. That advice left some of US confused. Myself included the way many people understood. The president was basically telling people mail in your ballot then show person and try casting another ballot. So one of our listeners Julio Sheila asked our poll workers capable of invalidating your mail in ballot and how do they go about doing so if they don't have them mailed in ballot right there. Well, here is the short answer poll workers may not have that same access to information that voters actually do at home. That's amber mcreynolds. She was a Colorado elections official for thirteen years. Now, I'm the CEO of the national vote at home instituion coalition. Our Organization is a national nonpartisan nonprofit. That's focused on improving the voting experience for every single eligible elector and every single voter across the country. So most states have at least an online platform where you as a voter can go online and confirm that your ballot was received by the election official and accepted North Carolina is one of a few states that has a complete ballot tracking system. So you as a voter can sign up for texture email and you get messages about the status of your ballot when it's been mailed when it's through the postal service when the election official has received, it verified it. So you get proactive communications just. Like, you would track a package There's a few states that do not have this ability online, but just a few most states over thirty I. think at this point have the online look up and then a few states California. Colorado Virginia North Carolina have all implemented statewide ballot tracking notification systems. There's no reason no need, and frankly it will just create longer lines if people start showing up at in-person polling locations to ask these questions when they don't need to do that the information is available. And Amber offered this reminder poll workers may not physically able to stop you from casting a ballot in person even if you've already mailed one in, but really you should not try voting twice. Voting twice as illegal, it will get you a felony that will not leave your record. It also might get you jail time along with some pretty significant penalties so I would strongly encourage voters to utilize their own information, contact their local or state officials if they have questions but I would rely on that I would not rely on politicians we've gotta get in a space where we put voters I as opposed to worrying about what the partisan politicians may want in the process.

NC State Study Looks at Gender Disparity in College Esports

"We're looking at a paper published by an associate professor, any PhD student at North Carolina State University. The research appeared in the Journal critical studies on Mass Communication. The goal was to see if college is worth programs have been more successful at crecy gender representation. East sports than professional sports have there are a few women who compete at the highest levels of professional sports. Rockets Karma is well regarded player who has spent time in. Her stoldas women, when major tournaments it so as fortnight, but for dependent environment that doesn't have fiscal differences creating a gap between genders us for to still almost entirely male dominated Nick Taylor co-authored the study and associate professor of Communication at NC State said in the journal quote five years ago we thought collegiate sports might be an opportunity to create a welcoming diverse competitive arena which. Was a big deal given how male-dominated the professional eastward scene was rapid growth of collegiate sports over the past five years has led to it becoming more professional with many universities having paid eastwards, positions, recruiting players at so odd we wanted to see how that professionalization has affected collegiate sports and what that means for gender diversity. The findings did not give us reason to be optimistic. For this study naked, his Co author interviewed Twenty One people involved in these sports programs. Eight of the people are part of Varsity programs with the other thirteen being president of their schools. Collegiate East Sports Club six of the respondents identified as women fifteen identified as men PhD Student Bright Style, the other CO author of the study told the Journal. Quote essentially, we found that women are effectively pushed out of eastwards many colleges when they start investing financial resources in east, Sports Program we talk lease sports might help to address the disenfranchise women in eastport at engaging more generally instead, it seems to simply be an extension of that disenfranchisement and quote. While an interview of twenty, one people isn't a perfect encapsulation of the wide-ranging college. He's worth ecosystem, all twenty one or in key rules of big programs meaning they speak for quite a few more when it comes to gender disparity. College eastwards still have a chance to be a place where we can create more inclusive east sports environments, but `gate-keeping in Tuxes D- are still real problems that women face in the space without focused initiatives that disparity won't get much better.

I don't think they could it really more than anything else is emblematic of the laid back. Let's have a really good time and not take things too seriously. But you're as likely to see someone to three piece suit there as you are to see seventy year old. I was long long. Grey hair and full tie-dye anywhere else seeing that kind of juxtaposition one might scratch their head. But here you go. That's Ashville Canada so as Berkeley California as often as to Texas North Carolina. Am I on the right track? You're the first person to make that observation. Yeah very much so excellent and if you had to summarize Asheville in just three words what three words would you use? Artistic ECLECTIC funky. Excellent in our guest again has been music journalist. Bill Kopp and bill. You don't write about travel but if people wanna read your articles about music where would they find them would go to? Museau SCRIBE DOT COM. Excellent bill thank so much first of all for pitching the episode but also for coming on and telling us about your love for your adopted hometown of Asheville North Carolina. It's been my pleasure Chris. Thanks a lot. This is an odd week to be talking about travel. At least we're talking about domestic travel. Because I am putting this show out right after the travel ban was put in place was announced for Europe because of the corona virus or the Kobe nineteen virus. We did a latest episode of this week and travel which will come on just ahead of this episode which will talk all about that. So I'm not GonNa talk much more about that. But obviously a lot of travel plans are up in the air. The only thing up in the air are actual airplanes these days so listen to that episode of this. We can travel to learn more about our predictions or the things that we have heard as we try and track this story again. We have launched patriotic for amateur traveler. Did want to thank Anthony. Who signed up this week for Patriot? Fan? I'm actually particularly appreciative of people who were supporting the show right now. I announced that I think in a newsletter.

"But the best tour is also quite irreverent. And you won't leave with a whole lot of historical context. You'll just laugh which tours that that's called the list zoom tour purple bus as often as not there's a live band onboard during the tour sightings often include a nun on a bicycle chasing after the bus is pretty wacky and again very very very. Ashville is a big laugh. They'll do things around Halloween in different times of the year but even the standard tour is. It's a riot. It's a bit like a comedy club except you're not so much in the audience as onstage in the stages rolling down a lot of time is spent at the direction of the tour guide shouting out the window at locals. If we're looking for something a little more serious it looks like the Tourism Board has a urban trail map that I can print out along with an audio guide. If I want to know where the monument for a Henry is for instance the watch from the gift of the Maj I or one of the other stuff response. I can take that out. The things you've mentioned. Each of those is probably about three quarters of mile from my house. That's a nice self guided tour to take their also a couple other national companies run tour buses around town. But I would say do the Self guided walking tour on your own and then for the riding the bus tour. Do the wacky one. You won't regret it. That's a Lotta fun excellent. What else are we going to do downtown? We have a lot of art galleries. Whole section of town called the River Arts district which twenty years ago was disused buildings in various states of disrepair. Eventually artists started moving into an setting up studios and lofts and now it has got a hesitate used the word gentrified but it's gotten a little more commercialized but in a good way that as opposed to there being scattered art galleries here in them. Ten blocks over there. There's you can head down to the River Arch district and then go from one art gallery to the next to the next and as opposed to what I see gallery. I'm not talking about some fancy curated place with velvet robes. I it's more a hundred year old brick building that you walk into. The artist is over in the corner working here. She sculpting painting or fiber arts or whatever they're doing in their work is on display and you can actually talk to them. Learn about what they're doing if you're still employed by some of their stuff. They wouldn't mind that there's the whole river district. There are a number of more traditional art galleries with things like blown glass downtown. And then if you've got a car you can head over to Blue Ridge Parkway which wraps around Asheville as it. Winds through the mountains and right at one of the entrances to the parkway is a place called the southern highland craft guild which is art museum and part display of the work of literally hundreds of artisans in. That's everything from pottery to again fiber arts and all sorts of things and when you say fiber arts are we talking. Textiles textiles mostly. Yeah okay. That's the term. I was not familiar with so I didn't know if it was high fiber art. That would be much better for my colon or what. We're talking about here or fiber optics fiber optic Syria. It's not that. Yeah if you want something. High-tech we mentioned Robert Moog before knocked away a number of years ago but the company that bears his name is still here in town hand building synthesizers and Robert Mug Foundation recently opened the mogues. Em which is a museum with hands on exhibits of Saruman analog synthesizers in the whole history of electronic music because he was a pioneer of that will and. I'm not sure that everyone who is younger than me will know it. A therapist is but since you mentioned one and you're an a music journalist here you can probably do justice to this. Can you describe what it sounds like? And what it looks like. You had seen a science fiction movie from the nineteen fifties the sound effect. That goes if you'll pardon me. Ooh or the opening sequence for the original star Trek. Yes that's similar sound. Also by that is a theorem and so it's not just a similar sound. See sometimes the that we think are therapists are and sometimes. They are in a lot of people. Think the most famous sound of Thurman is in the beach. Boys good vibrations. That's actually something else called an electro Thurman which is not a therapist. Okay the difference being not to get too far into the weeds. A Thurman is essentially a box with two. Wong's metal ones sticking out of it and you wave your hands around you. Don't touch it. You raise your hands around at one hand controls volume and the other controls pitch in fact Bob Mugs car that he used because I was his neighbor back. Ten fifteen years ago and the core he drove headed bumper sticker that said Thurman players do it without touching excellent. It will put a picture here in the enhanced version with what we're talking about here. Excellent anything else. Who Want deal with downtown? We haven't talked about food and we haven't oddly enough talking to music. Journalist talked about music as far as food. We have a number of James Beard trained chefs. We have a lively food truck culture here which started more than a decade ago. You can eat anything from Ethiopia into Spanish Tapas to more regional fair like Carolina Barbecue. Two of the best barbecue places I've ever eaten in my entire life and I've lived in the south most of my life. Two of them are right here in Nashville. One is called. Twelve bones is down the river arts district and the other one is north of downtown. A place called Lula's but both of those make absolutely wonderful barbecue. You Say Carolina Barbecue. I don't know where you are in the barbecue built here so we're talking white sauce mustard sauce or red sauce. That's correct okay. Barbecue tends to be the vinegar. One got it really depends in any of these places you can get the South Carolina or Piedmont North Carolina. One tends to be the mustard one. They got them all and for chicken. No vegan options as far as barbecue although we have lots and lots of restaurants that offer Vegan fare. And because there's a fairly large contingent coming back to the the hippie picture the quality of life thing there's a lot of focus on locally sourced when it comes to well everything actually which reminds me as far as food and other really cool thing to do that combines. Food people watching and all that is we've got tailgate markets. There's a downtown one on Saturday. The North Asheville one is also on Saturday. There's a West ash for one. I think that's mid week. Tailgate market is just an outdoor market. Where people are selling things from the tailgater. Their pickup is that. What's going on here exactly right? And that can be artisans. Who were making beeswax? Candles would be one of the goat farms around here. They're selling goat cheese. We've got local butchers. You can get fresh eggs in April. If your timing is right you can even find ramps which are a Appalachian Delicacy. That's a wild plant. That's across between a garlic and green onion soup. They only available for a few weeks. Usually in April. I literally have it on my Google calendar to start looking for them in April. They're not sold retail. You can't go into a grocery store and buy rams you're not really cultivated. You have to go out in the woods and look for them like truffle. Eat them with someone you love because it stays with you for days got it. If you're eating a millennial stay alone three much. Don't get in an elevator with someone who's had ramps unless you had them do. Let's take a break here and here from sponsor. This episode of Amateur Traveler is sponsored by skylight frame with.

When you're looking for an interesting and enjoyable meal breakfast is something that Ashville does really really. Well you'll find a lot of times. The line runs away round the block at the most popular places. It's worth the wait hop in line chat with the locals and then you'll you'll enjoy a really nice breakfast once you get to the front line. Are there a couple of places that are your favorites? Absolutely there's one called biscuit head. They make what they call cat head biscuits which are the size of your fist for the size of my fist lease. There's place downtown called over easy and then in West Asheville again which is ever so slightly off the beaten path from tourist standpoint but worth the couple minutes drive. There's a restaurant called sunny point again. There will be a line. But there's a reason for that excellent and when I'm talking biscuits and Asheville am I putting gravy on Hugo.

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..

"Under the current congressional maps in North Carolina Republicans hold how many gene seats out of how many so republicans hold ten seats out of thirteen in North Carolina right now and what percentage percentage of the state actually voted for Republicans about fifty percent or less in the last few election cycles that doesn't doesn't seem right no it sure doesn't but it is in fact exactly what Republicans designed their Gerrymander Dander to do and it has succeeded swimmingly marches stern writes about the courts for slate. He's been covering North Carolina's Gerrymander for years now he's washed his the maps that decide who can vote for whom have been challenged again and again in the courts for racial you'll bias for political bias saying these maps or controversial it's kind of an understatement my favorite detail is the Republican map-maker who I said I just think Republicans are better so I'm drying map so more Republicans win yes that was the guy in charge of redistricting and he also said the reason that I created ten Republican seats in three Democratic seats is because I couldn't create eleven republican seats in two Democratic seats so but these guys were not exactly subtle about what they were doing like the whole point was to dilute democratic votes as much as humanly mathematically possible all the last time we were talking about Gerrymandering in North Carolina the Supreme Court had just weighed in and they basically just said we'll take a hard pass on miss yes they looked at this exact map the ten to three North Carolina congressional map and said Yeah you know this looks pretty bad did but we don't really think there's anything we can do to solve it so we're just going going to shut partisan gerrymandering claims out of federal court for the rest of all time K..

"You got somebody running a low now sorry none of the none of their They don't get to go on vacation anymore. None of that L. be constantly on edge yeah. I I am not down with that. I now maybe that's the right way. It may be I may be a glutton for punishment but I just really strongly strongly believe that you can see as a freshman I can see sit back and observe from leadership on both sides of the aisle wear like these long term disputes and you know just just terrible treatment of each other because the Democrats are not off. The Hook baited for hundreds of years here. They did the same exact thanks thanks to Republicans. It's it's inexcusable than to and so that has to stop somewhere and so many I'm pretty sure I'm a person and colleagues have said we're not gonNa let this be the way the state goes forward on our side of the the other side of the aisle. They may have to be a little more. You know word swayed to that idea but I think they'll get there when we treat them with respect tax which would be unique a legislator well that at that anticipated my next question. which is you know if I'm role playing a hypothetical you know your district is thirty three thirty three thirty three and that that's a large even though it's it's you know maybe a little right-leaning That's a large block of folks that I could just imagine saying you know look I don't. I don't identify Fayoum unaffiliated. I don't identify either way. I just want you guys to stop fighting and and get stuff done and and you know and I think you kind of answered that part of the story. Which is you know? Yes look look. There's a line in the sand. What they did was wrong. I'm not letting them off the hook for it but I so I'm not GonNa Forget but I am willing to you know move forward and and and try and make some progress I I I I like that it's a good optimistic message and I'm the optimist installed the show so and I'm usually has missed and it. Kinda surprised my colleagues on. I've been lucky no we have to be kind editor about these things but you know what what happens when you have these kind of stalemate which is what's happening now is we have not expanded. Medicaid in the state and we have over five hundred thousand or killings without healthcare and they they're estimating around twelve hundred North Carolinians die every year due a lack of healthcare and let's just just not acceptable and so this kind of stalemate and tipper tatton revenge type politics just isn't working our state when we have people who can't even afford hard to go to the doctor and get the treatment they need and bus not okay with me and then we also have situations like we have public schools here. The buildings are crumbling. They have stained towels in the ceiling. They lead in the drinking water. You know all these different issues that need to be addressed crackle. We don't need to be fighting with each other over these personal vendettas. We need to be working on these issues in that's where I'm gonNA continue to come from and hopefully it will work in meeting. Gets thank then yeah takes two to tango though I think that's a great a message to go out on. What do you think I agree. I think that you've given our listeners ace some some really great kind of behind the scenes information. It'd be some some optimism in some ways to to get involved. I mean we get we get emails. We we started this show in July of two thousand sixteen planning to cover legal stories in the news so you the country took a slightly different. Turn on US too so so we yes so we got a lot you know we were you know at. I worked for Clinton and and and we get folks who say who ask all the time you know hey. You're covering this bummer of a story. what can we do and I I love your. I love your story. I love the fact that you got involved and then you know that their resources out there to to help first time candidates and so hopefully you're you'll inspire some of our listeners to to to follow in your footsteps. I always tell people it doesn't matter who you are. You can be a farmer. Stay at home mom a dentist you know whoever and you can run for office because everyone has life experiences that are relevant to the General Assembly and when you get there you realized realized that acutely because they're you all have these different experiences in educations in knowledge on subjects that really add to the value of the General Assembly in some way or or the other and it doesn't matter what you are you don't have to be no offense a lawyer to paralegals that I can. I can say that and you know you don't have to be you know a PhD and some subject to run for office. You can just be yourself and it works out you know just be genuine and we didn't talk a lot about gerrymandering but the Gerrymandering case the maps have now gone to the courts they day will be responding. They're public comment time for the plaintiffs and defendants to speak on the map stir propor- them we'll find why not probably by the end of October whether these maps are gonNA pass muster. I personally don't think they're gonNA pass the test of the courts based on the way they were done. Primarily the one of the main defendants representative. Lewis chaired the committee that ran the redistricting in the house. I'm he was should not have been during that as a defendant in this court case and some other issues that are unique to North Carolina and so it'll be interesting to see what happens percents because they could possibly change the North Carolina on twenty twenty one yeah yeah and and one of the instructions that I thought was was very very clear from the court which the Supreme Court reserved the right to postpone primary dates in two thousand twenty which seems seems to me to be you know pretty pretty powerful stick but but you know made it very clear that you have to do this without using wholesaler data and without regard for partisan identification it are you. Are you seeing that as part of the problem is is it. Maybe this is a loaded question but are the Republicans playing fair on that and following the rules or they you know trying to to introduce it through the back door the side door or the front door calling it something else I think superficially they follow the rules the base maps maps that both houses on the Senate used where these maps the requiring the Chen maps and he was an expert witness for the plaintiffs and he generated. I think he generated four thousand maps total total two thousand for the house in two thousand for the Senate and those maps were to demonstrate that no matter how you ran the numbers on population that you could never never achieved the same districts that the Republicans had drawn because to demonstrate they had drawn them under partisan in racial gerrymandering and this was purely done by population long as a we use those maps are based map and they really are not intended to be maps that would draw districts and I think the court is probably GonNa Frown upon that because part order was they wanted to this is not their turn but start from scratch and we did not do that we started with these maps from Chen and that was definitely not a scratch starting point and that was the decision of the Republicans to do it that way and they claim there wasn't time to have maps drawn from scratch and I you know I feel like the night. When everyone has a computer? That's probably not one hundred percent the case but other that and then there were you know there were some sometimes where there was a republican with their finger on the screen as the staff was trying to move precinct around kind of directing which precincts should be moved and that song that's GonNa hold muster in the courts and the shouldn't and then there were there was one who was very upset that his district is going to be competitive additive and he posted on his own personal facebook page that he wanted everyone to your right and the public comment and come and testify that in in defense of his district as it is. That's clearly not within the rules of the court lay down that you're that's partisanship clang playing game there so you know those things out in the open and everyone saw them but is the right thing not necessarily will be interesting and the how far the court wants to go. I've heard that court doesn't want to redraw the maps or order or be involved in the courts trying to stay out of it and I think they expected expected of one to do the right thing here but they've already appointed a special master. It's the same special master who redrew the maps after the court rejected with them in August of two thousand seventeen silly and so it will be interesting to see if he ends up during the map again again and what instructions given their through the Chen maps we ended up with a lot of people who are double and triple bunks and the court setting try your best to relieve if you can with as little changes the map possible and in some instances such as possible especially in Mecklenburg County where there were ended up with three three legislators drawn into the same district on the map because they live close to each other and now so those things are necessary sorry but how the court will feel about as what's in question in my district actually did not change that much. I had one split precincts was put back together and so I was and I'm up north Charlotte colleagues inside the only person up here and I didn't happen any chance to be double bunked so I kind of stayed back and said I'll support support. You guys whatever you WanNa do and said they did the best they could with the maps opening arguments is brought to you by vistaprint so so normally when I talk vistaprint I talked business cards because those are crucial if you have any sort of podcast or business or anything and you WANNA look professional business cards are a must but I also have to tell you I used vistaprint to print out the negative versus optimus prime placards that we used at the live show in New York. It was a lot of fun we were able to use those to vote who won and to also hold up for different segments and stuff and they looked awesome. They were exactly what I needed and they even showed up a day early which was crucial because I was doing them right in the nick of time as usual so I cannot say enough good things about my vistaprint experience experience with those and of course they have everything you might need so that was a very odd printing requirement that I had and they had exactly all all the options that I needed for it. If you need any printing business cards or even an obscure negative versus optimus prime segment placards for a live.

It sounds like a bunch of America loving freedom loving Republicans skin's like tricked Democrats into going to a nine eleven memorial or something like and then they voted while they were gone is that that's that's the kind of the representing I've seen is that some crazy liberal propaganda or what really happened in this situation yeah. This is the kind of thing that when I first saw the headlines I thought Oh great the whole world has gone occupied Democrats I'm I'm going to have to get out and creek this but no essentially that's true and I'm going to break down how it happened how we agreed just this is. I'm actually really going to have on I hope next week a member of the North Carolina state legislature a Democrat to tell us about what her experience and talk about Gerrymandering and talk about what you know what the Clown Horn is going on in North Carolina but until then let me break it down as as best as I can so North Carolina in twenty sixteen a not a not a great year for Democrats but North Carolina we elected Roy Cooper Democrat as governor and at the time a opening arguments was in its first two dozen episodes and be we we were rather distracted with you know Joel Stein recounts and what's GonNa Happen with trump and this and that we we missed this this story in The lame duck session in December of Twenty Sixteen. I like to think we wouldn't miss it today but we missed it. 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..

"For what the results say about twenty twenty plus the fallout for trump foreign policy policy donald trump's foreign policy after the ouster of National Security Adviser John Bolton Welcome. I'm Paul Zhigo with the Wall Street. Journal and I am here here with my colleague Kyle Peterson Hello Kyle Hilo. Let's talk about the special election in North Carolina district nine. That's a district but in the southeastern part of the state and it's it's something of a suburban and exurban partly rural district picked getting parts of Mecklenburg County which is parts of Charlotte. Some of the more affluent areas of Charlotte plus also stretching out into rural areas areas donald trump when they went there on Monday evening the day before the vote went to Fayetteville and Republican stronghold and seemed to have made made some impact he turned he turned that the Democrat in the race. Dan McCready lost fifty one to forty nine hundred forty nine percent to fifty one for the Republican Damn Bishop and the turn out in in Fayetteville and in Cumberland County surrounding a Fayetteville did come out for the Republican looking this time Fayette bill had he had McCreevy the Democrat had one that county Cumberland County by four points in two thousand the eighteen but bishop carried it narrowly this time Kyle yeah the story here is similar to what we saw in the midterm elections where where Republicans did better in Exurban Roy areas and did a lot worse than suburbs recall. Republicans lost seats for instance in the Dallas suburbs and it's a similar dynamic taking place here in North Carolina so when they ran this election in twenty eighteen the Democrat Dan McCreevy won by ten points in Mecklenburg County which is in the south of of Charlotte and this time he won by thirteen points in Mecklenburg County while still losing slightly the election but what's what's important to note here is that this is a very seriously red district trump one eight by twelve points it has been in republican hands since the nineteen sixties so there's no reason that this should have been a competitive election but in in fact it was and the Republican won by only about two points which I think bodes ill for Republicans coming next year well one of the reasons it was held was because this election had been won narrowly by a Republican a different Republican in twenty eighteen but they they ah investigated after accusations by the Democrat of foul play and those were substantiated more or less that there had been some ballot harvesting that had been dishonest by the Republican consultant and they the state the election officials called for a new election which we we support it I think was a good decision and so there was some likely to be some fired up Democrats in that district strict and that may have accounted for some of the of the stronger than the strong performance by the Democrat also McRae's good candidate ended a former marine good for the district a strong candidate and so you know that he was going in his in his favor. I guess the question what you're saying. Kyle is that this follows the pattern of two thousand eighteen where Republicans lost the house because they couldn't hold the suburbs and of course in that it wasn't just Dallas it was Houston. They lost a silk stocking seat in Houston. They Lost Austin Charleston. they lost in suburban Chicago. You covered that that house race in particular they lost a lot of places around Pittsburgh I mean unless you may round Philadelphia and if that pattern holds it bodes very ill for their ability to regain gain the house or even pick up many seats back from from what they lost in two thousand eighteen and similar dynamics with the candidates in some in some sense to so Democrat macree the Democrat he's young. He's thirty six a former marine as you said he's an entrepreneur. we saw a lot of those candidates running in the midterms terms. You know mikey Sheryl in a New Jersey. District is a good example of somebody who kind of fits that mold but yeah I think I think you're right. It's it's a bad omen for for Republicans in the House races next year but also I think in the presidential race so in two thousand sixteen Donald Trump won North Carolina by about three and a half points overall and if you think about the swing here this was a trump plus twelve district the Republican has has held it now by only two points I mean that is a huge swing. I mean obviously a special. Election is a completely different animal than a presidential election. The turnout here overall was about about a third of voters compared to fifty five percent or edging up towards sixty percent in a presidential election but still if you if you you are if you're donald trump and you're looking at how do I win North Carolina next year. I think you've got a challenge in front of you. Well interesting. I think the trump white White House. If you ask them they would say well. Wait a minute. We sent the president in on Monday night to Fayetteville. He energize voters there. They came out strong for the Republican candidate. He does have coattails and just think when trump is actually on the ballot he will be able to drive those voters to the polls so let's hold off on the obituaries for trump in North Carolina that would be their argument now alternatively tentatively I think the question becomes can he turn out enough of those voters to win and it's interesting just in terms of this House district. They are almost three dozen. Republican held seats in Congress that are less Republican than this one so those are going to be the ones that Democrats target and it's a suburban Trent. I think it's the Charlotte trend. It's the it's the it's the the well to do. Suburbs where are people are were republican-leaning voters and college educated voters and especially women. are unhappy with US president. They don't like his manner. They don't like the way he behaves. that that I think is the real soft spot in the danger point for the Republicans in two thousand twenty yeah and and I don't mean to write an obituary just to point out that this is an issue and if it's an issue in North Carolina it goes goes to say that it's probably an issue elsewhere too so so in those areas where Republicans lost suburban seats in in the twenty eighteen midterms I mean he's gotTa do better her. in in those areas to some of those states are not states that are going to be in play. Texas you know obviously is is pretty red Sh- Illinois Chicago oh that's that's probably not going to go for trump but some of them are the other the other interesting thing that I have been thinking about is is Joe Biden a winner of this too I mean he he has been making his campaign for the Democratic nomination to be primarily about his electability and so if it is perceived gives that twenty twenty is going to be a close race he can he can much better make that argument if the Democrat had won this if if the special election had gone on very blue in a serious way some of the candidates who are nipping at Biden's heels you know Elizabeth Warren Bernie Sanders could say make a more credible case that we're GonNa win win either way so you might as well get what you want policy-wise whereas I mean if I'm Joe Biden I would be. I would be talking about this race. I would be saying listen. This is gonNA. It'd be close next year. You gotta you gotTa pick the Horse who can who can beat Donald Trump.

"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.

"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.

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..

"Transgender transgender student who was excluded from public school bathrooms we went we went through all of that in episode three of six. I predicted that the glouster virginia gloucester county virginia school board would not appeal that decision and as of yesterday they did. I cannot imagine why so you would do that and <hes> and i wanna put out a call to to our listeners. If you live in gloucester county virginia you should consider running for the school board <hes> i. I'm sure it's a conservative area. Everything we read from the case indicates right that the that the trans complaints came from the community in this <hes> there is a very very very strong economic conservative reason to run for the school board and and that is this forty two u._s._c. section nineteen eighty eighty eight provides that in <hes> civil rights cases like this section nineteen eighty-three civil rights cases <hes> the losing party has to pay the prevailing parties attorney's fees and costs <hes> those were awarded in this decision and so appealing <hes> means that not only did this school board in her all of the the costs already but <hes> they're going to add six plus figures to that <hes> by by appealing this to the fourth circuit and there was no approach that they're going to win in the fourth circuit the saying you can run on the thing we all know is fake conservatism when actually it's just the culture roar and pretend that the day they actually care about fiscal conservatism again and make them admit that they don't that's exactly right. I think i would put it slightly more slightly more optimistically but probably you're. You're the age difference between us. You remember a time when they didn't fiscal this go. Conservatism was some part of the the republican platform yeah no. I think that's i think that's right. That's that's probably correct. Even though it's a swipe at ah you know dinosaurs roaming the earth back when i cut mike now they at least pretended it was during obama so i'll give you. I'll give you that well. I appreciate that so <hes> so look. I was wrong in the long run. I continue to believe that this is this is is going to victory. I i should add by the way that the trial court denied to stay <hes> the denied the school board's motion <hes> to stay the judgement <hes> pending appeal and so you know this is going to be on appeal but <hes> but will go into effect so <hes> it's still still it's still a good.

There's been a four year litigation matter. That's that's probably on the close order of a million dollars and <hes> and they're about to add to it. I can't believe they're allowed to just do that with school district money. What stops i. I think we kind of talked about this back when my high school was part of the lawsuit as they don't have any money what that money come from who who can stop anybody from. I'm wasting school money on stupid lawsuits. You absolute well. I'm going to say you absolutely could <hes> it would would depend on the specifics of each state constitution <hes> but you absolutely could write the state legislature could pass a law that says as <hes> the school board has to get approval from the attorney general of the state before they can <hes> file a lawsuit in which their potential liabilities ability succeed ex <hes> you could do that or you know taking appeal and <hes> <hes> you know yeah..

"Coast you're going to come to the north carolina query them and maybe small but actually pretty nice aquarium their goal is to show you border from the source to the cease from our mountains north carolina's along state and it actually take me all day to drive to the mountains so they fall the water from the mountains all the way to get out to the ocean and so it's an interesting display there but they also have a three quarter replica of you boat that we've sank off the coast and boat i believe scuba in so that's kind of nice and in the despite also you'll meet nimbus and then this is a rare white loggerhead turtle loggerheads nest here and we have a very active volunteers group that looks after them and nimbus hatched in two thousand seven because so unusual that kept him the aquarium so he's about fifty pounds now in the big tourist attraction if tourists wanted to get involved with helping the loggerheads is that something they can do in what time of year would they want to be there they could their nesting right now they could try right now is june they nest in the summer and a nice start hatching late summer and early fall but i think we do have about fifty s come in each year okay what they can do is talk to the people that are doing it and the problem is they don't know exactly when they're gonna hatch to camp out by the the nest but you can do that you're welcome to and you can see when you walk the beaches you'll see the nest taped off so you can see it there's a nest near where you are and then inquirer discuss i'll have a rough idea when it's going to be so it's possible it's difficult it's something i've never seen because usually when i find out there's going to want hashing catching it's in the middle of the night and and how it happens pretty fast so as you drive down the ocean road and there's only one role main road you're going to see a lot of maritime forced and this forced was donated by president teddy roosevelt he had married a niece of one of our local heiresses teddy roosevelt and his wife donated three hundred acres almost three hundred acres of maritime force and that's where the aquarium is interesting they've sold up some of it so it's not all pristine anymore but it's still nice example the maritime forced as you continue on his about twenty miles from point to point from fort macon to the end you come to emerald isle which is my personal favorite beach it's just beautiful if you're a good walker if you park in the last public parking lot and walk all the way to the point it's probably one of the prettiest places i've ever seen in fact that's gonna put my ashes when i die okay it's just beautiful it's where the wideopen ever comes meets the ocean and a beautiful beautiful site if you happen to be there between labor day and the moral day and have four wheel drive you can buy permit to drive out there but anyway it's a beautiful spot and it's just a lovely place to walk arbiture they're all pretty but the emerald isle beaches i think are the prettiest and for walkies when it sure there at low tide and we're on a little tiny strip of island administration islands that is a barrier island and so that's what twenty miles long maybe maybe a little less than that it's twenty one miles i think point to point and depending on the certain places or skinnier than others but a lump ice it might go two or three rows of homes towards the ocean and a few more heading towards the sound and then someplace it skinner than that it is virtually all completely developed now wasn't when i was in college but the nice thing too is it's almost all single family homes many of which are available for vacation rentals so it's not all these skyscrapers condos very nice in that respect i'm guessing that is specially this particular island is not the best place to go in hurricane season wind should we come to the crystal coast well might have to have a little disagreement there the.

"We shall gerrymandering congress made it about results the question there is did the map disadvantage a particular group if so it doesn't matter what they intended it's not clear congress knew what would was putting into place so in the supreme court for the first time how to interpret these amendments the court was really in the position of giving a lot of content to a statue that congress itself had not kind of fully worked out this was part of the argument that the supreme court heard in 1985 what we are talking about though is the ability of blacks to relate to their represented to ensure that those representative or accountable whole way that they represent the interests of books the rule that the court established was this that if there is racially polarized voting and as a result african americans are not getting elected and you can draw reasonably compact districts in which they can be made into a majority than you have an obligation to do that in many places across the south wherever you can draw a majority black district meaning over half of the votingage population was black you had to this interpretation went into full swing in the 1991 round of redistricting those districts elect african americans to congress and they are often the first african american representatives from those states since reconstruction north carolina's racially polarized voting made the newlyformed twelve th district legally necessary but the district was still controversial because of its shape that was considered probably the least compact district in the entire united states at the time in order to create a majority minority district it pulled in black communities from all over the state it looked like a nodded piece of strength stream diagonally across the middle of the state running from the border with south carolina almost virginia when people traditionally have been disenfranchised and then have left at the political process and the strength of their vote has.

"A white man's problem are white man's issue are things that he has to go through i asked weaver what you thought of harto since response though was disheartening 2year yield at someone who knew even seemed to be a least generally informed on what the concept of gerrymandering is wasn't aware that it's happening right here in the camps but even someone who pays attention to congressional maps might have a difficult time keeping up with all the changes around greensboro since the early nineties the district lines in the area have been redrawn six times even though there have only been three redistricting cycles for much of that time and he was in the twelve th district which was often described in news reports as the most gerrymandered district in the country this is an infamous district in redistricting litigation the district has appeared before the us supreme court i think now five times this is the third installment of the gerrymandering project in each episode zoom in on a different goal of redistricting reform and explore the challenges in achieving in this episode we had to north carolina to look at racial gerrymandering as things stand today partisan gerrymandering is not necessarily unconstitutional but racial gerrymandering is the fight to define it however has played out in courtrooms for decades and that's in no small part because it also has significant partisan implications the evolution of the lines around greensboro and the aimed to university campus tells the story of how that fight has played up the debate in north carolina and in many places around the country has often come down to this complicated question in his state where african americans overwhelmingly vote for one party is what's best for african americans the same as what's best for democrats.

"Know north carolina was enrolling players that w should have a challenging time doing the work at a at a place like north carolina the academic work and yet they're getting a eating classes like when you know you got an at risk student on campus on your roster and suddenly they're getting easing classes that suggests that something is up particularly when the the majority of your roster is taking these classes and getting as and these classes so if you didn't know that something fishy was going on it's only 'cause you didn't want to know is that a fair assessment i think that is a totally fair assessment uh and it fuel i'm it is kinda take that ball and run with it here here's the other aspect of this and i wanted to specifically talk on this podcast before we wrap up here because i think that we could have stories like what i'm about to mentioned come up in the future i want to acknowledge the fact that were aware that are out there but they're also very hard to prove i think that there are basketball players be ones that declare early for the nba draft or ones that are taking some are courses something you'd be online amongst the media there is a heavy dose of cynicism as to how legitimate the online course aspect of college is when it comes to basketball or athletes in general because it is easier to fake it now what from what i gather taking online course now versus taking online course in two thousand seven it's become perhaps a little bit tougher if you were to try.
