"For the first time since he was inaugurated president. Joe biden tonight has ordered. Us military strike the pentagon says. The president ordered airstrikes in syria around six. Pm eastern time this evening. This is the statement that we got announcing the start from pentagon. Press secretary. John kirby he said quote at president biden's direction. Us military forces earlier this evening conducted air strikes against infrastructure utilized by iranian-backed militant groups in eastern syria. These strikes were authorized in response to recent attacks against american and coalition personnel in iraq and to ongoing threats to those personnel specifically. The strikes destroyed multiple facilities located at a border control. Point used by a number of iranian-backed militant groups this proportionate response was conducted together with diplomatic measures including consultation with coalition partners. More on that in a moment The operation sends an unambiguous message. Statement continues president biden will act to protect american coalition personnel quote. At the same time we have acted any deliberate manner that aims to de-escalate the overall situation in both eastern syria and iraq. like that statement tonight from pentagon. Press secretary john kirby announcing these us airstrikes eastern syria now in terms of what these air strikes were in response to this month in iraq. There have been three rocket attacks publicly reported in the space of a week the most recent one targeted the us embassy in baghdad. That was three days ago to rockets fired in that attack fell inside the green zone that heavily fortified area around the baghdad embassy there were no injuries From those two rockets on saturday it was four rockets that had hidden air base north of baghdad. That injured one person but last monday it was a more. A more consequential attacked. It was a dozen rockets last monday. That struck the usually peaceful northern iraqi city of bill that killed that attack killed one american civilian contractor and wounded nine other people including several americans at the air bill airport now it has been widely assumed that it was iranian backed militias that were behind these rocket attacks. Iran has denied any direct responsibility but the attacks have been seen in in many quarters as a way of sort of testing. The waters with the new administration should also be noted. That president biden took office just days after the one year anniversary of the us killing. Iran's top revolutionary guard general and a missile strike. Something iran has promised to take retaliation for the other context. That's important here. Of course that the biden administration just a week ago announced that they're ready to hold talks with iran on possibly reentering the nuclear deal that was designed to keep iran from becoming a nuclear power. That was the deal that president obama entered into with iran. That president trump pulled out of as we've been reporting the story trying to understand the scale of these airstrikes night. We have just gotten some tape from the brand new defense secretary. lloyd austin. He spoke with reporters on a flight back to washington. He had been visiting. Us military facilities on the west coast. This was on board the plane back on route to the. Us's coast a target that we would after we know what we get and and we're confident that that target was being used the same shia militia that That conducted the strikes. You're very deliberate about our approach as you would expect this to be You're allowed to it. Occurs the iraqis to investigate develop intelligence and very helpful to us and refining target. You i was season was my recommendation We said a number of times. We will respond At you know on our time line and once again we wanted to be sure that the connectivity and wanted to be sure that can't the right dr sites it was today. Yes issue one defense secretary. Lloyd austin that's tonight we just got in that tape moments ago. Speaking about the first military operation of the biden administration. these airstrikes on iranian backed militias in syria. The administration says they are response to rocket attacks that targeted u s and coalition forces in iraq. You just heard Defense secretary austin there say that it was president who authorized these strikes And he did so this morning per the defense secretary's read out to reporters tonight joining us now. For more is nbc's chief foreign correspondent. Richard engel richard. I didn't expect to have you back on the show so soon after talking with you last night on a totally different matter Joining us on short notice tonight to help us help us through this. Not not a problem. And i was speaking short while ago with a senior. Us official with direct knowledge of this This was a a message to iran and iranian backed militias. According to this official. And the message was that the united states will no longer tolerate harassment will no longer tolerate attacks rocket attacks missiles attacks and particular the attack on your bill of earlier this month was seen as something of a watershed moment so this was a a message. That times have changed that. Even though the president biden wants to negotiate with iran this administration does not want to be bullied does not want to be pushed around is not going to accept the Increased military action that put us personnel and allies at risk. So this was. This was a strong message. It was described to me as the The carrot the stick in the carrot and stick of diplomacy and deterrence that the. Us is offering the carrot. They wanna get back to talks but they also are using the stick for the for the first time today and sending this message. The target that was hit was described as a series of buildings that were used to supply and support these different militia groups. A kind of a border crossing area on the border between syria and iraq. the militias. That operate in this in this area do often cross the border. The fact that the strike took place in syria is also significant. It take some of the pressure off of the government of baghdad. So this was a a very carefully chosen target. It was a calibrated response. Trying to hit specifically the militia that had been targeting the us forces and allied forces and also to send a clear message to iran. That times have changed now. The official said this is also a message to iran and the militias. That things are different than they were. Under the trump administration under president trump and by way. We almost went to war with iran in a very similar circumstance. That that we're in right now. About a year

"one year" Discussed on Buried Truths
"Page real quickly and enhance some breaking news regarding this This coming from kelley wiley twitter. A armories mothers filed a federal lawsuit against the glenn. County police department in the first to state prosecutors on the case jackie johnson and george barnhill page. Start with you your reaction to that. Well this is the first. I've heard of it. I have not read the lawsuit. But i would assume given the one year anniversary. This is certainly the time to pursue the case if she's going to against not the individuals who committed the crime but people who at least some things were involved in an attempted cover-up of cry. Because you know what watching some of the bodycam that we've seen recently have been released. I think hank mention this or referred to it. This case really came very close to never making it to court. I don't think people realize how close the mcmichael's came the completely getting away with what happened that day and it was only through the release of the video. The public attention the quick action. Frankly of the g. beyond attorney general's office to move this case towards prosecution so i think perhaps this lawsuit is an attempt to hold the local police department The da at the time she sent been defeated. She's no longer district attorney down here but the da at the time and a da joining circuit responsible for what some believe was an attempted cover-up. Hank your reaction to hearing this. The i think that's that's exactly right to the question. I guess in my mind is whether lawsuit increases the pressure on the us department of justice to move forward on its purported investigation into possible prosecutorial misconduct same with the state attorney. General both were pretty expressed dismay at the way that You know this became three card monty with with the prosecutors there Where jackie johnson glenn. County has to recuse herself. Because mcmichael had greg mcmichael it worked for her and then she turns it over to directly to george barnhill of waycross rather than go first to the attorney general and get him to You know name the person to replace her when she recused herself. I think she said at one point. She tried to call the attorney general and couldn't find his phone number So whatever it was. George barnhill gets the case. The same day that ahmad arbery is killed and by noon. The next morning has declared that He was guilty of burglary and that these men had the right to To get involved in killing him and resting him or trying to and that the killing was justified page when we talk about then accountability as relates to law enforcement. Not not the ought not off sometime while prosecutors here What needs to be proved in order for accountability. To be sir. Whatever that looks like yeah. That's a complicated question given the facts in this case i. I don't think i don't know frankly. I don't know what the department of justice is criminal. Investigation may have uncovered to this point. We know that they've interviewed everyone involved. In the case. Hank you mentioned that investigation is ongoing in. It is as far as we know but as is typical with the department of justice. They're not telling us what's happening. They don't tell us any preliminary findings or this is what we have so far..

Top 10 Team Success Secrets Revealed
"So Julie, we are talking about team-building and we were we pick this back up last week and the essence of our philosophy on teams is were being a succinct about it as possible. We are absolute Advocates of building teams, but we're Advocates of building teams that are designed not profitable from the onset not hoping and praying that there's profit left over after the transactions are you know have fluid through exactly. So last week we talked about the things that our team eroding Team Dodge straying making teams fail and we didn't want to keep it all that negative. But some of those things are obvious some of them are underlying until you discover them. So we went over all ten points that are a destructive and now we're going to talk about successful teams what actually makes for a successful team. So I'm going to jump right in if that's absolutely okay. So number one maintaining the magic number of lists wage. All times so successful teams maintain the magic number of listings at all times and know how to replace listings as they sell in a predictable duplicatable way lead generation is proactive prospecting based and marketing enhanced a lot to that one point your team me up for the real estate treasure map. I am indeed. And so what this says guys when she talks about the magic number, it's simply a formula that we both know created basically years ago and lived for years and lived for years. Right when we sold real estate cuz it's love you guys know Julie and I were selling between 100 and 200 houses per year for about ten years old over a hundred houses our first year in business in the early twenties. And so the real estate magic number is simply the number of listings you needed all times do meet or exceed your financial, you know, your goals your expectations your obligations, your commitments, the real estate magic number is not complicated to figure out but it is critical that you understand the concept because it's going to save you from a lot of the pitfalls that frankly ruin agents businesses and their potential reality. We want to give you the real estate magic number. Yep. To give you the real estate treasure map the real estate treasure map the essence of the treasure map the essence of what the treasure map is, it's our fill in the blank business and personal life plan. Its you got a business plan but really truly is a life plan and when you complete this the output is going to be a lot of important numbers the most important of which is knowing the number of listings you need at all times to meet or exceed your financial goals and expectations. So what I want you to understand is that you're going to most likely fall behind your actual potential if you get too distracted from anything other than focusing on the magic number of listings you need at all times. So you should receive this and it is free. You can buy this on the on Amazon, but I want to just give you this book. Okay, it's called The Real Estate treasure map. Just text 20-21 855-685-1055 text 2021 to 85685 10:45. And when you do we're going to text you back a link to not just the treasure map, but also a lot of other great books, including your 12 monthly generation guide and thinking Rich for Real Estate, which is an iteration of Napoleon Hill's great book Think and Grow Rich. Yes only it is practical and tactical translating how you actually use what you read in Think and Grow Rich. So let's say this point just for a second because when I have or you have an agent who's considering joining a team one of the first questions I asked if they've identified a team that they might want to join is does that team actually get listings? Because if they have no listings or very few listings or they're not, you know, established as a really Kick-Ass listing team. You should keep looking absolutely because they're not going to have enough for you but that goes actual circles back around to the you know, free previous points. We made by why teams failed. Yes. The biggest reasons is cuz there are all predicated on buying leads right teams will fail and you'll always fail if your business is dependent on being passive and bring your business. Nothing more to say might drop in K, but I want you to think about this guy's it's a very interesting concept Julie and I teach you to be proactively lead-generating first and and then based off. Want to look at marketing, right? There's proactively generation. There's passively generation or there's proactive marketing and there's passive marketing. Julie and I are always going to tell you to be proactive marketers and Lead generators first. And then if you choose not to be passive, then you can choose to be passive after you've mastered the Art and Science of being a proactively generator. I know that just sounds like I'm playing with words but it really is critically important and here's the essence of why it's important in listen to them. And if you've been in real estate for any amount of time you're going to end you're going to say hallelujah when I'm done saying this ready many of you are being taught incorrectly really bad business techniques where you're supposed to basically by your business and buying businesses in the literal sense from like over paying a referral fees, but it's also from social networking from branding any of those types of passive activities that are absolutely need that guy's of every real estate, you know, evangelist nowadays. They're all going to tell you work on your brand. They're all going to tell you to buy leads or all going to tell you clever Facebook ads and Instagram videos and hell even Clubhouse write them off. Always looking for ways to generate leads passively but here's the ultimate fallacy in that. It's unpredictable. You cannot predict when you're going to get something from the passive be we know that they digital generated off essentially internet generated at or I'm sorry leads are the worst quality leads that you can possibly get oftentimes. No better than just going to an old-school phone book and ripping out like ten pages and having an calling those leads the leads you get from online lead-generation our garbage and you guys know that not that people I'm not saying that I'm talking about lead quality. So be very clear about that. If your goal is to generate a bunch of leads that might someday hopefully within typically it's eighteen months three to four percent will actually transact. There's no guarantee. They're going to transact with you again. Does anyone think about this or tell you the truth about all this? No, they do not why cuz they're trying to sell Young Generation. But the biggest reason why we want you to be proactively generators is because this great analogy that actually are heard which I wish I would have thought of cuz it explains it so succinctly you're going to build a mansion. Yep. Engine is going to be your future. The manager is going to be represent the future of your family maybe but it's a literal Mansion right? It's your financial future. It's your potential reality going forward.
Teachers union president: 'No perfect solution' to reopening schools
"And joining me now is the president of the American Federation of Teachers. It's one of the nation's largest teachers unions. It's Randi Weingarten. Ms. Weingarten, Welcome back to meet the press. Randy Chuck. Okay, You got it Ready? I I want to start with where I think many. Many folks are framing this argument, and you may think it's It's unfair. But I want to put this up. This is from the nation. I'm the coronavirus will be with us in one form or another forever. Zero tolerance made sense in the first year the pandemic just as it made some sense in the early nineties to fight crime, But zero tolerance cannot be a viable long term strategy when it comes to reopening schools and other vital public institutions. And then also let me have let me let you listen to Governor Gavin Newsom, because they kind of is making the same point and I want to get you to respond. Here's what he said. You find whatever you look for. If we want to find reasons not open will find plenty of reasons. We want to start building on ways to strategize to find ways of getting to where we all want to go. We'll figure that out as well. I think in both instances, the question is this. Randy what is reasonable risk? How do you define it? Right. And so look And so I thank you for letting me be on today, Chuck, because I do actually wanted to bunk. This myth that teacher unions, at least our union. Um uh, doesn't want to reopen schools. We teachers know that in person. Education is really important and it's you know, we would have said that pre pandemic. We knew that remote education, you know, is not a good substitute. There's a road map now and so you actually can follow that road map in terms of defining those risks, and I think between the CDC guidance As well as the resource is that President Biden is trying to get in the $1.9 trillion package. We have the highway or the road map that allows us to do this, and it comes down to three things. The mitigation Layered mitigation strategies. The testing so that you can actually see a symptomatic spread and vaccine prioritization. Not that every single teacher has to be vaccinated. Before you open any schools, But you should align the vaccine prioritization with the reopening of schools. Is there a model school district right now that you feel as if Um You could say, Hey, See this. This is this is the way that this could be done and I'll keep everybody will be reasonably happy. Yes, there is. Ah, I mean, there's no perfect solution. But frankly, I think that New York City has done a pretty good job in terms of showing the way. Big school district lots of issues in terms of old buildings, and we learned a lot from what New York City did in September and October and in fact My members. I just did a survey of mine membership. And 85% have said that they would be comfortable being in school if they had the kind of testing layered mitigation like, you know, and vaccine prioritization, and that's what New York City is doing. So I want to actually lift up people like Washington, D. C. The mayor actually made sure that every teacher in school employees that one of the vaccine got vaccinated in the last few weeks, Same in terms of the Oregon governor save in terms of the West Virginia governor, same in terms of the Ohio governor, and so the when I hear, um politicians when I hear Governor Newsome saying You're always going to find a way out. Well, why is he not actually prioritizing the teachers in L A where they've been in Purple purple Zone, not in red zone. So So where I think the issue is if the NFL could figure out how to do this in terms of testing and Protocols. If schools air that important let's do it and my members want it. They

When i started with sounds profitable because i really like the idea of another organization out there that was looking to help everybody gather information together and potentially have alternatives to just the ab solution out there. So i figure it's a. It's probably a great idea for us to start off with asking you to explain opa and what inspired you to start it. Okay yeah absolutely so it is. It's a lofty organization with a terrible name. I think i was hoping it was going to be a placeholder. It's what we're going with For now so back in a may twenty nine thousand nine hundred last year was a as we're recording anyway. I was looking around at some of my analytics data for the podcast hosting company the iran and one of the questions that sometimes gets asked as about how customers can move data from one provider into potent for example and. I thought it'd be really interesting to see what can be done about ways that we can standardize the tracking information that we have about each episode. How many times. It's been downloaded roughly. By whom and i started thinking more about things like the and being a programmer by by nature. I guess i thought that the kinds of problems that the i obey are tackling for podcasters in so much as they are calculating like what can what do we consider to be a download of a podcast episode. That felt to be something that we could tackle in an automated basis in a way that could be easily replicated uneasily run easily automated as i say the didn't necessarily need a huge amounts of people cost. It'd be time to set up initially but then the day would be that. It was something that that you would be able to run in the same way that we now have things. Like letting crypt for handling. Ssl certificates So that you now you don't have to pay multiple hundreds of dollars to get an s Sasol's difficult for your website. You can get one for free by using this system. Yeah i i think that's great and that's one thing that i wanted to kind of break down. There is that the i. a. b. you know has a fee per year depending on the size of your company. I looked to join his an independent. And i can get in like the first two years a startup rates at five thousand dollars now. Five thousand dollar fee doesn't do anything if i wanted to get certified. It's an additional cost. And that cost us what two ways one is a payment to the ab and the other is a payment to certification company. Like a like an auditing company that comes in and confirms that you adhered to the ab sanders by doing like tech audit and reviewing all your data and so james cridland pibe. News has his own self hosted podcast awesome. It could cost them forty to sixty thousand dollars easily for him for one year to be certified with the iab. Alternatively eager kicked the numbers over the cdn data over to like triton and be validated there. But you know that's a couple grand a month to and at the end of the day like that's still it's not that far off from what the charges so what you're talking about here is instead of something that each individual host would get audited instead. We have like a central piece of tech that is audited that's maintained in improbably. Third party verified that is able to allow hosting companies and other platforms to call in do a self certification and it focuses on that central point right instead of like the deep dive required for each individual partner. Absolutely and i think the the thing to to tack onto mr cridland example is he could use something like chargeable. Which i guess is now. Abc's fide he could use that but as someone who writes about for example listener privacy. There are questions around that that you would imagine there would be with any of these third party analytics services you know. There's a reason they make that infrastructure available for for people. Like a steve's especially of people to use for free and so without getting into the weeds on on that particular discussion. That might be a reason. Not to put words in james's mouth but that might be one of several reasons why he'd be not when you use a third party service because that's something that he does writes about.

The Queer Community And Body Image
"You've been getting in touch about your own experiences with body image of the back of our episode where we discussed the question was does the quake community have a problem with body image. And i think this is what i love. This would meeting gang on the politics me. Keep it down to quota trying to quote one of the guardians. Top ten pocus twenty twenty one year. Things have come to light you see. What's great is we sort of do the discussion episodes and then people start writing with other new views. Things that came up one of our listeners wrote in talking about we didn't have enough. The queer female perspective will say we didn't cover enough of the trans perspective on the body image stuff which contains so many specifics. And then we've had two more messages about certain angles on it that we may have overlooked first discussion which is so great. So i got something from dan dear christa. I've been listening to her savings over the past six months or so and love it. It's a great thing to all these viewpoints from across the lgbtq plus spectrum and feel that connection especially while we're unable to make real life ones during lockdown. I must however take issue with the point raised in last week's podcast about body image. We do have a problem in the community of body image and the way in which we raise up. The stereotypical white system muscular young man as the pinnacle of desirability. Well they go. I sort of just fine and thing. But i have noticed a growing aggression from some progressives within the community towards guys who do enjoy presenting stereotypically. Masculine i understand. It's very important to make sure all body types and the ways in which people like to present are important and should be equally visible engaged media across the board. however. I didn't think it's helpful to attack. Those do enjoy stereotypical appearances of masculinity. I have a friend who is very popular and well known online and presents as old school masculine. I'm recently had a tirade of messages from someone. Berating him for toxic masculinity. The friend in question is a lovely individual actually identifies pan sexual loves guys who present as feminine and was hurt by this unwarranted attack based on his appearance. Say my point is that will vote is important that we push for more diversity in image and representation within the lgbtq plus community. It shouldn't be on the basis of attacking those who happen to enjoy presenting as masculine in a more traditional way. Keep up the good work done from london thanks. Dan much appreciated. And we haven't covered that angle. It's really interesting and it leads me to think of perhaps a even bigger question big truck driving post is that i suppose. The persecution queer people have ever received is about sitting outside of the norm and argument. Is it's all spectrum. Let us be who we are. That's gender sexuality gender identity everything and what you're talking about. Dan is that within spectrum masculinity and femininity should be able to be apportioned to everybody. I wonder if this is about that. If we're going to allow people who are expected to be masculine to be feminine and we want people to understand that will say need to make people who just masculine and that doesn't make you. Not queer is about opening up. Everyone can be anything they want. Is the kind of the end goal here and the persecution of each other is something we have to be mindful of an ice certainly. Do you know because that can be true. Attached to suffering at the hands of people who are hyper masculine who have pointed out your lack of masculinity i needed. I had that like people you know. When i was a kid chris menial such go and they were always kind of the masculine people doing that. So you can then sort of demonized as people but actually there are going to be people who all they feel. Comfortable in. Their skin is being masculine. And that's what they wanna do and that is as valid as anything else. It's important to remember that
Interview With Douglas Hill
"Well hello everyone and welcome to another podcast from frames magazine my name is scott olsen and today i have an absolute thrill we are talking with doug hill. Doug is a corporate photographer. A fine art photographer. His work has been all over the place. It's in magazines books. Catalogues it's at the j. Paul getty museum the library of congress the museum of photographic arts in huntington library. You know of course for his work at frames a very active member of the community. Doug welcome how's everything out in los angeles today. Thank you very much scott. It's a pleasure to be here today. It's probably seventy five degrees and sunny but we're on stay at home orders though. I'm stuck in the office at the moment. Oh th that's a shame because seventy five degrees and sunny out in los angeles. That's a photographer's dream. That's what everybody hopes for. You could get that beautiful light out there does. There is so much that. I wanna talk to you about your photography there. There's so much about this. That i find really impressive and enlightening but i got to begin at the beginning i i really wanna know. How in the world did you get from being you know the seven year old with instamatic up to a world class corporate and fine art photographer. I got started. I got my first series camera niagara matt and the reason that i got it was that i was going out with someone who was very interested in pursuing an acting career. And the well. Here's a perfect opportunity. I'll have a model someone that i can work with them. And start to figure out how the camera work then actually worked out pretty well straight off the bat and i had access to actors and actresses drew agents and producers and folks like that so i began doing head shots and i did that for several years but after awhile i began to burn out on. I certainly loved working with people but there was something about the process of shooting. That was kind of growing stale. So i started looking around for other things that i could do with a camera. I had been interested as a kid in architecture. Thought i might even become an architect at one point except that there was way too much math involved and I i got a four by five. Large format camera and began shooting buildings that interested me but didn't know what to do next with it so i started calling all of the architectural photographers. The serious ones in the area Maybe a dozen people. It was before the the field had really burgeoned. I call them all Asking if they need assistance most of them alike. We said no including julius schulman said nad on the internet system Recommended a guy named leeland lee who had been his assistant for a number of years especially through the period when julius was at the height of his powers and he said you talked to leland and i have confidence that that that may work out. I called leyland. Leland was gracious enough to say sure. Come on by. I showed him some of my work. He said well. This isn't very good Which was but i thought. Okay i'll i'll plough on. But he said you know what. I can use an assistant and you're welcome to to start doing that. If it interests you so it did very much. And i learned an incredible amount from him working with him in the first year that i got to know him and i started to pick up clients and found that i really enjoyed the work. I enjoyed working at a much. Slower pace It was hard work physical work. There's a lot more lighting. The cameras were larger and heavier. It required an attention to detail that i discovered i. I really enjoyed so. I stuck with architecture photography for many years at the same time. It's doing some fine art. I had gone to ucla and studied there. And and also cal arts. So i i was sort of on these two tracks one being the commercial architectural work and the other being fine art.
"one year" Discussed on The Kevin Sheehan Show
"The game somehow lost that game and it was a devastating loss because the expectation was they were gonna roll through the cowboys they were gonna roll through you know. I think they played the cardinals the following week. And they were they. Were gonna be in the hunt to be a wildcard team if not a division winner and then they had a huge game against the eagles that they lost. And then i'll never forget the game. That really was the final chance for them to get back into the playoff chase. They played the bears at home. The bears were good really good that year and Brian urlacher Caught a pass from the field goal holder on a fake field goal for touchdown to give chicago. The lead in the fourth quarter. Washington was up in the game. Chicago was an excellent team that year They had I forget i to be honest with you. I think they're just an excellent defense more than anything else but with her locker and some of those guys but they They had a fake field goal. That gave him the lead in the fourth quarter and that ended up winning the game For the bears. And that knocked the skins out of contention but hell of year. And you know it's interesting because we talked about this last week. Tom floors deep. Get into the hall of fame. Which you know as i mentioned to you last week. If tom floors gets into the hall of fame. I think mike shanahan will get into the hall of fame And i think marty schottenheimer deserves to be in the hall of fame. I think the big difference obviously is that floors won two super bowls. Mike won two super bowls. Mike was considered an innovator With zone run scheme but marty's regular season record is much better than either one of those two dudes in you know even though he did not have the playoff success man. He was always in the playoffs in three different locations. We compared him to george allen. Yeah.

"I will canvass this number of times and no more and that way sort of set yourself limit so that you have because this is not actually sprint. This is the this is going to be a marathon. You know the twenty twenty election is not the end of politics And we have to keep doing this literally for the rest of our lives. So I I really suggest remembering that. You sometimes need to leave you know. Leave yourself a little strength or as the Internet. Likes to say more spoons for for later on down the road So feel free to like you know set set some boundaries for yourself who I would just close by saying. I heartily agree with both Kelly and Sophie. I would say I guess That I do think that twenty twenty at least in my lifetime which is long one at this point More important by far than any other election I've ever seen so I kind of have tried to take for myself and obviously you have to give yourself time the respite take for myself. This notion that We do have to fight as hard as we can and work as hard as we can this year for the sake of everybody and not to be corny. But certainly we among us you particular. So I'm the note that we're all in this together we're going to take care of each other And on this first anniversary of voter in thank you all for listening in.

"one year" Discussed on Two Broads Talking Politics
"Everybody? You know I think it closer talks a lot about things like mental health you know and is that are these things working for for you. The voter at the person on the ground. I want to be fighting. Not because I want you know that fancy house in DC. Not because I want you know. There's the fancy pen I get to sign laws with but because I want to help you and I want to make your life better and I think that that's an argument. That women can make very powerfully. Because that's what women do. In general I is is fight Four people and is is how people you know in you you think about this as as MOMS chromos. Teachers is lawyers end and so. I think that they can make that really compelling argument and I think that that really gets voters motivated I agree and I think really to put the emphasis on On the what? You said that some people say that this is working. But it's not working for you and I can see that because I think there's a big sort of energy in the mid West right now feeling left behind. I think that's been happening for like the past twenty or thirty years particularly in areas where people feel like okay. The rest of the world is doing fine. But everybody's forgotten about my little town in the midwest everybody's forgotten about us and we're not doing so well and I think speaking to those people and saying you know what all these people in Washington are saying. Oh the economy is so great but like is it. Because you're not doing. Wow because farmer suicides. An all time high in Wisconsin. So obviously like things are going well for you. Tell me more about how I can help you. I think that's a really effective message to say I see you. Even though other people might be doing fine I see you and I care about you. You know one of the things. I talk about this in my book. Voter was the importance of in lots of other people. Of course we've talked about this true about building. Alliances among women across class and race lines and in order to get what we need in order to be helped in the way that we need to be. And you know it's an ongoing challenge. There is still data about. I don't know how good it is and we'll see as the race unfolds about Y Women Not Favoring Democratic candidate necessarily. I think it's sort of too early to be dispositive about that but I do think that we're seeing you know. A lot of women vote for the male candidates in this race. There's no reason so far and that may continue to be true so one of the questions. That's come up in these last few days prominently in the press is whether it's time For either warring or kosher or both of them to quit the presidential race and needless to say I'm not speaking to the mayor's bad idea at all but as politicians of course they have to consider what what they're hearing from the media and otherwise and and how they Preserve their brands so to speak and their point of view and I sort of thought it might be fun for us to think about this because it doesn't often happen. They happen for sort of everyday people. I gotTA quit this job. No we just put our heads down you know and keep trying to work harder but say you you know. Kelly say you were in senator clover shirts shoes or Senator Warren shoes. Neither of whom has one So far in both of whom have a big challenge ahead of them in South Carolina How would you? How would you evaluate that matter repeat? Let me quit while I'm ahead and TRY TO POSITION MYSELF. For instance say to BP. I think the answers different for the two of them not so much because of their standing in the polls or anything like that but because of the the lanes that they inhabit because the moderate lean is so much more crowded right now in this race. I think that I if I were Senator Klobuchar I would think seriously about whether people rightly or wrongly think that she is standing in the way of a moderate gaining consensus. And then you people a lot of people really want somebody to beat Bernie and you know. So if because she's in that more crowded lane if she is in the way of that you know. It's it's possible that that would sort of hurt her brand at some point that maybe she stayed in the race too long. You know we can to beat all day whether that is actually true or not whether that game theory makes sense. But I think that there's a perception of that. And so if she let's say were to leave the race and endorsed Joe Biden. Who seems like you know of the the moderates may be the one who could who could pull it off? You know maybe that does give her You know whether a VP spot for him or somewhere in his cabinet. You know. I I could see that being very valuable for her. I'm not sure that there's as much of an argument For Senator Warren to drop out. Because I'm not sure what it gets her and I'm not sure that it helps this project that everyone wants to beat Bernie because they think of Warren drops out half her voters might go to Bernie and then that actually helps him so you know. I don't know that it positions her quite as well and may be staying in the race and being the fighter the person to take down. Bloomberg is is what positions her better for you know a VP slot or a position in a cabinet or just being able to stay in the Senate and she could work there. So I don't necessarily think it's the same answer for both of them but I. I do think that it's something they need to be thinking about seriously You know I don't want them to drop out of the race. You know I said the other day like my choices. Two through eight have already dropped out and you know. I don't want more of my first place choices to drop out but I think it's something that they need to consider a specially if there is widespread panic rightly or wrongly about Bernie cutting the nomination. I This is interesting. I agree with you that it's different for both of them and I agree. It's because of the lanes but my conclusion is the opposite that because the moderate lane is so crowded. I'M NOT SURE WHO. Amy Klobuchar would know to endorse or to negotiate with whereas Elizabeth Warren clearly. She's a line on the left with Bernie and so she could go to Bernie and say. Hey if I drop out. Can you guarantee me? Xyz And then that materially helps Bernie if amy drops out. It's not entirely clear to me who that helps. Does it help Bloomberg does it help. Biden doesn't help Buddha judge and so for her. It's a lot going to be a lot harder to figure out. Who are you negotiated with you? Are you going to go all three of them and say if I drop out? Will any of you give me this? I mean for her. I I think that would be a harder decision so for for me I think. Yeah that is a very. I mean. They're both really smart analyses. I I agree with pieces of both. I would add one other thing to this. I guess from the vantage point of My own involvement going back aways one of the most important things that happened For African Americans in presidential primaries was of course the fact that Jesse Jackson stayed in and he stayed in and he ran again for years. Later and my recollection. I don't have these numbers in front of me. Is that at the end of the Democratic primaries I think in the second campaign he had received twenty percent or so of people's votes that was enormous. That had never happened before it shows the strength of him personally but certainly of an African American candidate and their viability. And you know. I think that that's an instructive lesson. for both Senators as we are in this place this year and go forward a wanted to turn for a minute to this point about the vice presidency and talk quickly about that and then I think we're gonNA WANNA close today's episode with a little bit of Inspirational what's next to do discussion. But you know. Obviously there's been lots of discussion in this whole context about Some people saying that a woman vice presidential is really important other saying not so much. Certainly Stacey Abrams yourself. Right out there a couple of weeks ago. Think she'd be happy to be the candidate with anyone Kamala Harris has been Significantly more circumspect but then of course if it's the case as we've just discussed You know there are other Women who could be considered for that spot not only senator warm and Senator Klobuchar. Certainly you know other members of the Senate or governor. That spot has a history of being considered by presidential candidates for a range of people. So I just was curious about kind of what you're nearing so to speak on your respective streets about this aspect of things. Well Rachel Bitta coffer has said that she thinks that Stacey Abrams is the should be the VP. Pick for any of them who are left And you know I can definitely see that. I love soup runs. I think she is incredibly inspirational. I think her as Rachel Offers. Her charisma is just extra. Think it's hard to even measure but you know I don't know. I think that that would make a lot of sense. I think that would be a good pick. She certainly has the the the chops of of being out there doing the work. And so I think that would be good. I think that the a lot of the so-called k. high of the Communist supporters still have not settled on a candidate. There's sort of reluctantly deciding to vote for someone you know. Some of them were in some of them Biden. And I think that you could get an awful lot of them really excited and a and a lot of them. Are you know people who are happy to give a lot of money into a ton of work and so I think you know comma could be a very strategic pick a you know a across the board as well and I think it helps that? California is a pretty safe place for us to be taking a senator out of you know. We're we're not gonNA have to worry about losing that Senate seat it'll still go to a democrat. So I think in that case you know. Kamla might be a really good pick. Although she'd be an excellent attorney general to if that was the thing that she was interested in doing in the future so I could easily see either one of them. And I think I I'm I'm going to be deeply uncomfortable with the Democratic ticket is all white and so I think that you know in that case. Both of them would would help with that issue as well. I think that you know as much as I would love to see Warren As VP of she is not president. I do think that taking somebody in Massachusetts where there is a Republican governor. And you know we could at least short term end up with a Republican senator in that seat I think could be Kinda Frisky so you know. I think we need to think about those sorts of issues as well But you know I. I'm all for the Stacy Harris as VP to literally anybody. Well I'm fairly sure that in Massachusetts you actually have to have a special election. They're not gubernatorial early appointed. Yeah it would be derby a few month gap at least well. There was an appointed person so I wanted to say here that I saw a data point earlier today and in another context which I think is important to what we're doing here in to all our listeners are doing it was about The fact that In the last few years I forget the actual time period only fourteen percent of any exhibits in major museums. Were of women artists that made me think about political pundits which who of course are overwhelmingly male as well and and overwhelmingly white so I wanted to say to our listeners. That well of the three of us. Don't pretend to be totally knowledgeable on this subject. I think it's really important for us to have this conversation. Among ourselves among women who do pay attention who do care and who are thinking hard about this and so that's the context in which We had this discussion today And I just wanted to close it with The notion that You know of course. The most important thing for us all to do is to stay mobilized There's an argument for focusing on whatever candidate matters the most to you or if not playing the odds. I've started getting phone calls from friends asking me about that. Because they don't want to waste their time or their vote. But what we do want to say to you here is just. Please stay mobilized active. Do everything you can killing and Sophie. Any final on that this is something will be returning to for sure but I think it's also important for people to remember that as important as the top of the ticket is. It's not the only part of the ticket and so you know. If in the end your favorite candidate is not nominee that will certainly be the case for some percentage of the people listening here that you know. Find Down Ballot race. That is exciting to find a woman running for state legislature governor. Something that you're really excited about passionate about and knock on doors and increase turnout for that down. Ballot candidates will also increase turnout for the ballot. So you can. You can go out there and be motivated whether or not. The actual presidential nominee is the one who inspires you. I agree and I want to put in a plug as well for pacing yourself I see a lot of people that I know who got active in politics. Oppose Twenty Sixteen. Who you know a little crazy for the midterms really got into it? And burn themselves out and now are feeling horribly guilty It's okay to symptoms not be able to take on everything. I find it more helpful to sort of budget out my time and say okay. I will write this number of postcards every week and no more. I will donate this amount of money every month. And no more. I will canvass this number of times and no more and that way sort of set yourself limit so that you have because this is not actually sprint. This is the.
"one year" Discussed on Daily Grace
"Literally have tears and I'm trying really hard not to ugly cry right now. Thank you guys so much for sending in those audio clips or really just humbles us to hear how the podcast has impacted you and to everyone else who took the time to submit an itunes rating or review. We're just so grateful. We read every single one and truly it humbles us cannot inside at enough and you know we wanted to highlight a couple of those reviews To say thank you for taking the time and just to share how much of an impact it has made on us on this journey of making this podcast so a couple that I chose one is from a sixteen year old girl. And I've mentioned this in an episode before because it really didn't impact me and I wanted to bring it back and actually read a lot of what she said so she sat. I'm a sixteen year old. Who's used to listening to and reading Christian stuff that is geared towards MOMS and wives? I don't think I can explain how refreshing it was to hear them. Say that they knew high-schoolers might be tuning in. Because I think most people assume that high schoolers would rather be sending snaps on snapchat than learning about how to serve aboard. Also the idea that it's not just for MOMS and wise was thrilling. Because I think people forget that you're just as important to the Lord when you're single as married. It was especially lovely. When they said that women are not only meant to be wives and mothers. But first and foremost to be disciples of Christ. This podcast has opened my eyes to a lot of things that I need to work on my heart and his honestly made me feel like I belong in the Christian world as much as anyone else And this review has stuck with me for many reasons why that captures our heart to communicate that the Gospel and our spiritual disciplines are for all seasons of life. You know no matter what our life look like. Our ultimate purpose is the same and that is to glorify God and then to we really do hope to communicate how important every member of the body is and really show how we need each other right. We need each member in the body to be healthy as local church and as the big C church. And so thank you Lindsey Jay Hunt for leaving this review and it really just encouraged us to press on and one more review that I wanted to pull was from Kate. Rc She said. I can't say enough how much I love the daily grace podcast. I listen weekly. I've never listened to a podcast by women for women that has been so challenging. Convicting and encouraging. This is not your average. Listen and feel better about yourself. Podcast these women spend time preparing to teach truth but in such a loving way. I haven't listened to one. Podcast that has not both encouraged and convicted me. Please listen learned with me. Thank you kate for this review and for faithfully listening every week. We're just so grateful. And we appreciate your support and join. I really do prepare for each episode and we make sure that everything we say aligns with scripture and we also pray that we are communicating all of this truth in love and we do hope our listeners always feel a part of the conversation and we really are on this pursuit of holiness together. Wouldn't you say Joanna? Oh yeah absolutely. And it's been so encouraging to see reviews from people of all different life stages I'm new believers seasoned believers and a couple that I wanted to share one is from Pamela Hubbard and this is right back on the podcast I released. She said this podcast is relatable and grounded in the truths of the Gospel. The topics meet you right. Where you are encouraging you to simultaneously grow deeper in Christ will also resting in His grace and I just loved that because our heart is that that would happen that we would rest in who God is and in His grace but also that would empower ass and compel us to growth obedience. Yeah Another one from our farnd she said the focus of daily grace is spot on God his word and the Gospel of Jesus Christ are made much of you'll find solid biblical truth here to help you grow in your love for the Lord which is what transforms every area of your life such joy and hope to be found and that is our prayer that would be made much of the Gospel be made much of here and one more from Amanda Forty two she said so relatable and filling. I've been looking for a podcast. That would really dive into faith in scripture but felt like it was good conversation. This is it. I'm constantly saying Yes to every point made in the episode this'll be a shy can replay over and over and still find things. I missed the first time I especially was touched by this one because our heart for this from the beginning has been that we can offer deep truths of scripture in a way. That is meaningful approachable. Yeah and that actually impacts our daily lives so thank you so much for all of the reviews. There are so many We would've loved to spend hours reading them all but unfortunately we can't do that and but we so appreciate them and I did want to introduce to you. Another person who really helps to make these. Podcasts sound great and that is our editor Jesse. Believe me our podcast would not be what it is without Jesse and so we actually wanted to welcome her onto the podcast. Give you a little behind the scenes info here so Jesse. Thank you for joining us all. Thank you for having me you guys. It's a privilege for sure. Yeah Jesse came on with US. Pretty close to win the podcast first released and it has been such a blessing off the privileges mind. Yeah you guys have no idea how much I stumbled just reading a quote and Jesse just makes that while Jesse we would love to hear from you. We want to share looking back over the past year. What each of our favorite episodes was back in less than if you haven't had a chance. So Jesse what was your favorite episode. Yeah I think My favorite episode for a while as episode twenty five. What's God's will for your life and I think it became an instant favourite honestly because it's just a really important subject matter because I think there's a lot of confusion and the lack of clarity on the subject. I don't feel that at first. I was well taught in this subject and I feel like you ladies really just hit it home and when discerning God's will and decision making I think a lot of us have expected a sign or some sort of emotional confirmation. I know I have but it's just an encouraging reminder to as long as the decision we make doesn't go against scripture or has sinful motives tied with it we are truly free to make that decision and Shirley as we grow in the Lord and the knowledge of his word and we will grow and godly wisdom to make these decisions but we shouldn't expect like a lightning bolt from heaven whatever to affirm decision by any means. And you guys just did a really good job of widening. The scope of God's will and that is just far more than decision making and that even within scripture talks about the will of the Lord's for our sanctification that we abstained from sexual immorality and then in another area rejoice always praise these give. Thanks in all circumstances for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you and I think all of this was just nailed home so well and so clear for me in a just encouraging reminder and surely it was helpful to many people. But I'm curious about you guys though Stephanie. What was your favorite episode in the last year? Yeah I note about the episode. Just mentioned I remember when we were working through that episode thinking man. I wish someone told me this when I was eighteen. Yeah I do hope that that episode continues to serve people all ages and brings clarity on that topic and yeah we're just reminds believers of their freedom in Christ but as far as my favorite episode. I can think of three that stand out but I decided to choose the one out of the three. That's an interview We're really grateful for every single person who takes the time to record with us and speak into a topic Often hard topics that maybe we feel like we just want that extra voice of wisdom to add to the conversation so I'm grateful for everyone that has come on but one interview. That deeply impacted me was episode. Fourteen discipleship and evangelism with Tamsin Baker. And so- Tamsin reminded me how discipleship and evangelism are naturally part of the life of a believer and I actually really listened to the episode This week and gained so much someone said they repeat listening to the episodes and get more and I'm the same way honestly and you know again listening through I was just so encouraged to be consistent and the word you know. She talks about how the little mornings of faithfully reading the word adds up and so it was encouragement to me. Even this week to have this long term mindset and then she also just was such a great example of being purposeful in the mundane so to have is to see windows of opportunities to show the love of Christ and the Gospel and then lastly man I think she exemplified the so well but she was so others oriented she really cared for others and that was just so evident you know not just their spiritual needs but also their tangible you know everyday needs and so yeah just listening again to that episode. I was just you know fired up again and reminded to be consistent in the word. Be purposeful in every little thing I do because it matters for eternity answer just love to really care and love for others. And so yeah. That was my favorite episode. From this past year doing what was yours this was the hardest question scrolling through thinking. Ooh that one. Oh I know I did decide to land on one. That is a current favorite because I think back on it and draw from it often. That's episode thirty nine. What to do with bad days and and it has just been thinking back on all the things that we talked about an the truth that the Gospel actually transforms our bad days and our bad days. Difficult experiences have good purposes and good outcomes. It's just been such a source of encouragement for me when I'm having a hard moment Said that's a big one. I mean some close seconds. Where like preaching the Gospel to yourself episode seven and suffering and sovereignty with Maurizio Gutierrez? Ray Wins you gotta get your tissues ready for that lead but I really. It was really hard to pick. But it's been so sweet to learn from these episodes myself. Yeah you know I was going to choose preaching the Gospel to yourself as well. Because there's a cool backstory to that that we haven't shared that's the only episode that we lost the recording and had to you. That's right I forgot about that. Yeah and honestly it was a whole nother episode when we revisited it and I think that was all God and that was such an impact for Apple said for essay. Because you know not only did it lead to as writing the study but it really challenged us to have gospel fluency and really dig into how does the? Gospel apply these Berry real aspects of our life. And how could we communicate that so I think that was a very really pivotal time in our podcast? So yeah that was definitely good one. If you haven't listened to it but yeah as many of you know we always under interviews by asking our guests three fun questions and thought it would be fun for the three of us to answer those questions focusing on this past year. So we'll talk about our top three favorite things from this past year. What's on her nightstand? And what's a resource that has most stirred are factions for God's word in this past year so in twenty nineteen so Joanna start us off there? What are your top three favorite things from this past year? The pressure so we have kind of shared some different kinds of things and our favorite things. Maybe it's like a food item or a spiritual resource or an experience. So I thought I'd share one of each of those good place. Oh I is my new T. habit drinking tea a EB. I'm drinking some right now. Lovely Roy boasts. Tease is and so. I GOT TO HAVE MY Red Roy. T and my new electric cattle with my natural bliss French Manila creamer and I had to recommend to one of.
"one year" Discussed on Daily Grace
"I'm here as always with the lovely Stephanie. Hello everyone hey so. We are celebrating. Something really exciting. And that is the one year anniversary of the daily grace. Podcast which I just want to say is crazy. Yeah I can't believe that it's been an entire year Since the podcast launched and so we WANNA take a few minutes to celebrate. And so just a little bit about what you can expect from this episode. We are just so excited to be reflecting back over some of our favorite episodes. We are excited to hear from you all and some of the audio clips that you have sent in. We're going to share some of our favorite things from the whole year. So some good resources there for you. All and there might even be some bloopers. If you jill and I guarantee you will not want to miss. There are probably a lot more than could possibly make it into the show. Oh but you know. It's really been incredible to see what God has done this year. Through the podcast we have heard stories from people of how God has used it for encouragement and transformation and you know every good thing that has come out of this. Podcast is because of the work of God and we are just so grateful to be able to be his instruments and participate in the work that he's doing this medium and we do want to say a huge. Thank you to all of you listeners. We are so grateful to you for listening for being so gracious with us even as we share our own struggles and our own shortcomings. Y'All have been so encouraging through your reviews. They're your messages or emails or comments. And we're so grateful for all the ways that you have supported us sharing episodes with your friends. You have all been a huge blessing tests. Yeah really may God receive all the glory and honor and praise for what he has done. And through this podcast. We're just so grateful so grateful for every person who listens for every share for every review for every message that you personally sent us on facebook or instagram. Where so grateful to be invited to journey alongside you guys in the small way and I am forever will be humbled. Yeah and you know God has used this podcast in our own lives for sherm in incredible ways for growth that. I think that we couldn't have even anticipated. I'm Stephanie. Could you kind of share us. How the PODCAST has been the source of growth in your own life. Yeah Oh my goodness tremendous growth. I've grown in my knowledge of God's word of course as we prepare extensively for each episode. But I'd say not only has my knowledge grown. I think I've grown in my ability to communicate how the Gospel really does change everything like how it applies to our lies and it's been edifying to ask the questions at where we've all probably ask yourselves in private and to really put those kind of hard questions or heart thoughts against the word of God to see what it has to say and we have always found that his word is sufficient and so that has just been a tremendous blessing for my faith has grown my faith and you know one other way that I realized reflection of how I've grown this past year through this podcast is. I've seen the beauty of the gifts of others and Joanna working with you on this. Podcast has been a true gift to me. it's been so awesome to see your strengths compliment my weaknesses and honestly just celebrating your strength and embracing them because it brings glory to God and had it advances the kingdom. So it's been so wonderful to see you. Glorify the Lord in this way and I think I've just grown in my ability to see and appreciate spiritual gifts and talents. That other members of the body have is like the guests that we invite on the podcast and I'm just so grateful for everyone that's involved and yeah. I think that's how I've grown the most this past year. How `Bout you? Oh no I mean I absolutely agree with everything you said. You know on a practical level these episodes that we require a lot of research And so you know we have to wrestle through a lot of these questions that you're asking and hoping to find a biblical answer for and yeah kind of echoing. What you said Stephanie. And has caused me to dive deeper into God's word but not just for the sake of a surface knowledge but really with a heart for understanding and application how it actually changes and transforms our life. Yeah and you know. It's really challenged. My own thinking and revealed the need to respond graciously and humbly to those whose viewpoints may be different for mine because as we wrestle through these topics. There are a lot of things that we have to stop and say okay. Have I been understanding this appropriately? Yeah what what do other people who love the Lord have to say about this topic. That's been I think it's been a huge source of growth and it's also been humbling to see just how much I don't know research experience. Stephanie thank you have a grasp on a topic. And then you start diving and you're thinking. Oh my goodness. There's so much here for sure like you said to Stephanie. It's sharpened by ability to be able to have Gospel centered conversations and that's poured over into my other relationships and friendships and it's created a really sweet friendship between you and me Stephanie. Yeah Even as we do that together we to practice with each other now talking about the Gospel and why it matters and how it applies so that's been really sweet and even develop those kinds of relationships with other people like kristen who we tend to bounce really difficult topics of Jessie are editor. Who help us think there's some of these things to So yeah overall. It's just called me back to God's word. God's goodness helped me develop new habits and spiritual disciplines and it's really just over. I can just look back over the past year in hindsight and see the work of sanctification that God's been doing in my life and yeah the podcast has been an integral part of that and you know we asked to hear from you all as well about how the podcast has been impactful for you and so we wanted to share a few of the audio clips that you all sent in right.
"one year" Discussed on Left, Right & Center
"This is Josh Barrow. Welcome to left right and center. You're civilized yet provocative antidote to the self-contained opinion bubbles dominate political debate. It is the first week of November our and this week. The New York Times made a lot of liberals nervous new high-quality battleground state polls from the time. Paint a picture of a close twenty twenty election sending sending a different message from the national polling. We see more often with big leads for Joe Biden Elizabeth Warren Bernie Sanders. Part of the message here is that trump's electoral college advantage appears to be widening that whatever trends are happening in the suburbs that continue to weaken Republicans with part of their traditional base. Then maybe taking away. Votes in Texas or even more votes in California -Fornia but in Pennsylvania Michigan Wisconsin. Those effects aren't as important things remain close. And you could conceivably see. Donald trump be reelected while losing the popular vote road by an even wider margin than he lost last time and that has a lot of Democrats wondering what they need to do in this primary to prevent that from happening. We're GonNa talk about that later today. And how you should think about polls so far in advance election but now let's bring in our left right and center panel as always. I'm your center. I'm joined by rich lowry editor of National Review on the right and on the leftist Sabil Rahman of Demos. We also have a special guest today Oreo Edwards Levy who is reporter and pulling editor at Huffpost. Hello everyone hey josh. Hi everybody so There were elections on Tuesday in a few states. We can talk about twenty nine thousand nine elections before we turn to twenty twenty And Republicans did hold onto the governorship in Mississippi By about six points points but in Kentucky Republican incumbent Matt Bevin lost despite a last-minute assist from president trump who rallied for him in the state. Andy Bashir won that Election Kentucky succeeding where other Democrats have failed in two ways. He held onto port of the ancestral democratic base in Appalachian Eastern Kentucky. which is otherwise swung hard toward Republicans? Any made inroads in one strongly Republican suburbs of Louisville and Cincinnati. The suburbs also delivered for Democrats in Virginia giving the Party control of both chambers of the state legislature sure and therefore full control of that state's government for the first time in decades Sabil. What lessons do you see in these results as Democrats look to next year so a couple of things jump out out I is this is a pretty important result for the Democrats right. You have a really important shift in Virginia now with the TRIFECTA that's going to change the politics and the policies command that state. And when you compare Virginia Kentucky this move in the suburbs that you're describing really is a strong pattern across the different states We'll see there also is a similar move move happening in rural counties to in the direction and I'm sure we'll talk about that in a moment The other thing is that you know there is a grain of salt rate. It's twenty one thousand nine. It's off your election It's hard to extrapolate national trends. So it's this isn't quite the same as the precursor to twenty eighteen But it is a strong result for the Democrats rich. When you look at Virginia Democrats it felt like we're having a rough year in Virginia. You know you had the the black face scandal with the governor and the other black face scandal with the attorney general and rape accusations against the Lieutenant Governor And some Democrats in the legislature and the governor staking out a position on abortion that Republicans thought was very extreme outrage. The median voter. None of that seems to to have stopped the steady forward march of Virginia becoming a blue state. Yes this marshes right word. It's a trend. That's been going on for a long time. Has To do with demographic changes ages in the state state becoming better educated more suburban more diverse so the whole divide seeing now between the suburbs and more rural working class voters. It's something that's been going on for quite a long time. And trump has just accelerated it and he's His conduct is repellent. Want to a lot of of former Republicans in the suburbs especially women or the question and we'll get stressed this in a little bit as whether he can do what he didn't. Twenty sixteen draw. Aw a A broadly are radioactive. Released E- easy to make radioactive opponent and take off enough of the edge in in the suburbs to just barely over the top again. Arielle is the national story. That simple as you know re Republicans keep doing worse in especially inner suburbs and Democrats. Democrats keep doing worse in rural areas. And if that is the story is that an even trade between the two parties I mean I think that is in large part what we are seeing across the country and you know I think that can obscure event. There will always be things happening in a particular race in particular level. I mean you saw that in Kentucky where certainly considerations that were not national politics obviously. That's it gubernatorial race where it's a little bit of a different story in terms of how much which partisanship is going to influence people's votes but you are seeing these broader demographic trends of these areas sorting themselves out more and more and you. You know we'll see whether that ends up evening out and whose favor that is rich. The governor's Arial notes. There were some specific local factors. Matt Bevin was not the best like person including institutionally in the Republican Party in Kentucky. He tried to defeat Mitch McConnell and a primary if years ago so after this close result he lost by about five one thousand votes. He's basically said he's not going to concede he thinks there were regularities. He wants a canvas. Maybe he's going to contest the election first of all. What are you like he lost? What do you make of him coming out and saying that and then also I mean what do you make of the response of the Republican Party in Kentucky which has been mostly to sort of ignore him and say well he lost the five thousand votes is not a a a lot in the scheme of things but recount are- canvas sincere? A scenario is huge and the chances overturning that are extremely minimal basically impossible muscle so i. I don't like the trend we saw stacey. Abrams Georgia as well. You lost please be gracious about it. It's a very tough thing. Personally it's hard to take but go away and don't tell us for years afterwards. How you were truly? The winner. Went clearly weren't beal. I as I I hear Democrats worrying what about you. Know what is true. IS TRUMP GONNA admit he lost if he loses the two thousand twenty election and this I. I've not been very worried about that. For reasons. That are are playing out on the Ground Kentucky. which is you know you can say? I didn't lose. I didn't lose and that can be irrelevant if other people won't go along with it and it looks to me here. You know the partly I think you know as noting five thousand votes as a lot if it was five hundred votes we might see see a different situation but also it's peril to trump and that you have an executive who the other institutional elements in the party never really wanted in charge and there's a part of them that I'm I'm sure is just you know pleased to be done with them. Yeah I mean I think I think that's a hopeful Lesson I hope you're right taking the model of of Kentucky I look. Here's the here's the challenge. In some ways that the the decision making factor here is going to be the rest of the institutional right. What the party things right? If the Party doesn't go along with it then and it just becomes sort of a slightly embarrassing stance on the part of the losing candidate and it goes away and our democracy proceeds in democracy only works if both sides recognize the legitimacy the results right and so so I think I think in that sense. You are right what I worry about is when we talk about the impeachment scenarios there there is such a strong strong incentive at the moment for the institutional powerbrokers of the Republican Party disarray fall in line with the president that that's where I would put more concern right presents going to do what he's GonNa do. We always has but at what point does the rest of the party decide. You know what the rules are the rules we have We have other people. We can put forward in an electoral contest. Then we don't need to keep following this train. Well let's talk about impeachment I think that's a that's a good time for us to talk about impeachment Rich there's there's an article in the New York Times This week about an emerging defense dance that house. Republicans are talking about I as it becomes clearer that there was some sort of quid pro quo here around Ukraine ambassador Gordon. Sunland has changed his mind. He refreshed his recollection and and said. Oh Yeah I did. I did tell the Ukrainians they would have to make this public statement about investigating the Biden's in order to get the release of the military aid and so Republicans are talking about the possibility of saying essentially that these guys were freelancing. Yes somehow a message got to the Ukrainians that there was this quid pro quo that but maybe trump never authorized them to send that message. Maybe he didn't want breath after all. Trump's specifically denied Senator Ron Johnson that he had proposed a quid pro quo and especially in. The case of Rudy Giuliani. Maybe he was even acting for for his own independent financial interests. He had all these business interests in Ukraine. Maybe he was using his position. Close to the president to push his own agenda. And that's where this quid pro quo idea came from in. The president is innocent. It and I think in that context. It's worth considering a tweet. That Rudy Giuliani sent. This week that looks outwardly. Like defensive the president but I'm not sure it is. He says the investigation I conducted concerning 2016 two thousand sixteen Ukrainian collusion and corruption was done solely as a defense attorney to defend my client against false charges unquote. So is it a viable defense into the president to basically throw rudy. Giuliani under the bus. And say you know whatever. These people did. The president did authorize them to do that. Because it certainly sounds like Giuliani is going to say no. I did this in my capacity as the president agent. Yes I say a couple of things one. There's a glimmer of an opening for this defense. Because most people we've heard from so far really almost all the people we've heard from so far Had what trump was thinking second or third hand because they weren't the insiders which is more Bolton Mo- Vini Giuliani and it's entirely plausible. That Giuliani and important respects was freelancing but I think that would have to do more with his business dealings in Ukraine. So it's just hard to believe. Leave that that these guys got this cooked up this idea on on their own. How how did the defense aid get withheld? According to and trump mentioned on the call talked to Rudy. which again is an indication that he and rudy are on the on the same board on the soap a month ago When it was still pretty early I had a theory that it might defense? I offered tentatively that maybe there was the intention of quid. Pro Quo. Never really got to the Ukrainian so it's clear at least it got the Ukrainians and I still. I know you're skeptic Josh by so think Defense Republican senators will end up falling back on. is they got the money. And they didn't make a statement about investigations. Well so the bill. This is. This is the sideshow Bob Defense. You know the you know attempted murder. There's no there's no noble prize for Attempted Chemistry Right But that in the simpsons. That's a joke like is it. Is it really good enough to say well. You know the president didn't get away with it and therefore no harm no foul. Yeah I think it any fifth-grader recognizes just how paper thin excuses is. You know won't get you very far in in the real world and we'll get you very far year. It's it's it's not an excuse. Use It all right. Of course the the the the point is in the attempt and I agree with what Richard I mean. Excuse the freelancing. Excuse this each week. There's a new sort of angle right right and they all kind of keep falling down one after another in large part because of stuff that the president and Giuliani and others keep saying on live. TV and on twitter from their own mouths. So you know. It's it is kind of absurd so I know you hate this question rich but I so this still isn't impeachable and I ask again. I wanted to because of that. Giuliani tweet..

"Let us go to cocktail 'til chatter. When you're sitting in your beachfront property on the deck watching the waves lap up ever-closer closer ever-closer ever-closer what are you going to be chattering about as you drink and elegiac cocktail Emily Basilan? I am so oh distrust this week about a story that colleges and universities have been buying the names of high school kids who take the sat. And don't don't look like strong enough candidates to get into said colleges and universities but the colleges and universities reach out to them and market to them and make it seem like. Hey Okay you have a good shot. And then they reject them. What is the point of doing this? The schools do it to drive up their selectivity rates because that helps them in the Horrible but powerful. US News and World Report rankings. That continue to sort of stock us like a terrible ghost of US news and World Report. which otherwise I feel like doesn't and even exist anymore? Who knows and then there's also the cost to these students and their families the psychological toll of applying to schools that it actually You don't have a shot getting into and then the actual cost of paying the application fees the whole thing just makes me ill and it is just one more nail in the coffin for the SAT. which I would just Be So happy if we got rid of it forever John dickerson awesome. What's your chatter? My Cheddar we is is kind of twofold but I was reading A piece about going to Mars. There's an independent about how long it would take and all the things that would have to be taken into account and it. It seemed completely obvious after reading it but wasn't to me in my initial initial thinking about it that you know three years on on a ship to Mars and back. You're going to have to handle all your own surgery and and like even small kidney stones could become fatal in that environment Where you're basically in a tin can for three years and the and so anyway? I tweeted that not incredible revelation revelation. But anyway and Paul mcgrane said it reminded him of a story that you guys probably already know. But that I don't think I knew but which is about the Soviet Doctor who was in Antarctica in nineteen sixty Leonid Rogov who had to perform his own appendectomy because there was there was not a doctor or even a medical station for a thousand miles and the snow was blowing and anyway so basically he he had to Use some Novacaine and a mirror and two friends one. Of whom was I. Think a meteorologist and the other the driver to basically help him do surgery on himself and when he opened up his stomach he found that in fact the the appendix was about ready to blow So he probably would have one more day before it would've blown in that. I think it would have been impossible. That's a pretty amazing thing to do surgery on yourself and be successful when she was does He had apparently to stop at various intervals while he was doing it because he got a little woozy. which you know fair enough but that was an amazing story of Some of the human spirit. Yeah that's my chatter chatter. I'll I'll I'll double dip a little bit first of all. I want to alert everyone.

"one year" Discussed on Slate's Political Gabfest
"This is the twenty-fifth eighteen global agreement asking for voluntary emissions reductions. By most of the nations of the world the president announced the withdrawal on the first day that the United States could announce. It's it's legal withdraw from this. The withdrawal will not take effect for one year so not until November four. Th Two thousand twenty the day after the presidential election so under any circumstance Arkham stance the US will be withdrawn from the treaty. For at least some period of time presumably at new president could put us back into it but it will we will be withdrawn for a bit it emily. It's kind of not a surprise. I mean the president has rolled back emission standards for cars. He's loosened standards for coal plants. He's got subsidies for renewable you name it. He has done done it when it comes to when it comes to weakening protections for the climate and undermining and attempts to decrease emissions. So is this actually important that he's doing this. Yeah it's important. This is the worldwide climate climate agreement. That's supposed to get countries moving towards saving the planet. You know the saving grace of this is that he had to give a year's notice and so this this will actually go into effect the day after the twenty twenty elections which means that if trump is not reelected it could effectively be stopped and it puts into stark doc. Relief the choice that voters will be facing and making in November about the United States. Whether it's going to be responsible in its reaction to climate change and whether it's going to join with other nations in this like incredibly crucial collective enterprise so when it comes to something like this so the Paris accord I think they're. They're two different kinds of critiques of it. One critique from the right is this just really the hurts American interests and hurts American competitiveness and it's it's other countries taking advantage of American wrecking our economic growth. That's the one side and from the left. It's this is a very sweet tea. It's voluntary said of goals. There are no requirements. Why does even matter because no one even has to hit what why? Why is it important despite those two critiques? Well you just got to start somewhere. I mean collective action has to collecting cohere around something and and Once you once you build the formulations and the and the structure for agreement than you can ratchet things up we've also seen since the original agreement And the targets which I believe are two degrees Celsius We're now at one degree Increase in some parts of the world. Think in a quarter of the globe. It's already one point five. The problem has gotten worse by the targets of the original measurement. So that's a problem and creates that sense of urgency but if you don't have something that gets everybody everybody around the table and work towards these goals. Even if there's someone voluntary then you have to kind of start all over again. which is what we're talking about? If there's a new president they would have to start all all over again which I would just interject quickly in terms of turnout mechanism for younger voters in particular for whom this is a voting issue which again gives the Democratic candidates. Some wiggle room because if those if they're gonNA turn out because you can make the case look climates really going to be screwed if you don't elect the Democrat. Then that gives the Democratic presidential candidate some wiggle room with other parts of the constituency that they need to work hard I would. I would argue that the counter of that John which is that the conservative position and the trump has kind of morphed in a subtle away. It's no it's not really so much. This isn't happening. The full throated. Denial the kind of Bogus denials which they pushed forward have vanished and instead edits moved into what I think is a more effective set of messaging. which is you just say green new deal? AFC Socialists wreck. The economy. Crushed jobs jobs and that I don't know that's more effective as a turn mechanism for the right than what you just described as for young voters on the left but it is a. I think it's a more. I think it's a better argument because more realistic and it does have an actual. It's almost puts numbers on something. It says Oh yeah these guys are trying to destroy The strong industry that we have and take away American jobs and take away jobs and timber and fracking and in Petro hundred. Aston to come on. I don't endorse eight. Yes go ahead. No no just like can't stand to keep hearing it's for so long we already even in Are Denial list or skeptic economy we already are employing twice as many people in solar as we are in coal in the United States. Meanwhile though we're letting leading China just like have this market so this is from John Kerry and Chuck Hagel op Ed from F- for every dollar the United States invest in renewable energy. China is putting in three. We're just like seating this whole territory. Even as the cost of producing. Aaron wind is coming way way down and that kind of renewable Newell Energy is competitive. There is a huge economic opportunities here. And if you think about it as an economic question not simply just open a green. cushy green silliness. It's actually economics. This is where jobs are. This is where economic opportunity is. This is where growth is and it's it's demoralizing the hell that that these people who claim to believe in economic growth and claim to believe in innovation in the future. Just throwing it away. Ah It's maddening. It seems to me if you have younger voters who care about this issue and are going to vote on it And be propelled by it. Then what it does is it. Frees you up to make precisely the case. You're making aching and that Walmart is making and that all of these individual companies that have joined together to push behavior that is renewable and that supports wind and solar that you can make that case to to save suburban voters. You can say look. This isn't about This is about economic the economic future and development of the United ended states. It's not just about these fuzzy lefty ideas. These are smart economic decisions to make about. America's future seems to me. You have lots of free market kit private enterprise people who would Who Join you? And who would buy that argument. This is going to be an incredibly negative election. So I think there's going to be so much much ugly uglier things said about Democrats to caricature them or characterize them that that climate actually probably would you know they'll do uglier things I yeah. Yeah but then we also have to take into account the disproportionate political power of the people who could be losers from this economic shift right. So it's the manufacturing center. It's people people in Kentucky and West Virginia and Pennsylvania who are still involved in coal mining and other extractive industries and those folks really matter in the Electoral College Wjr. I what I don't understand is like the people what shoes a proxy for what they but yeah the the people who the people who live in Miami like if you think about Florida. That's a big state. People live in Georgia breath. Florida's is a state that may well not exist in its substantive form in fifty years. If you live in Miami you own any real estate Miami and you're not incredibly concerned about climate change your fucking Moron and so I don't. I don't understand if you own any beat scribes APP Annie Beachfront Properties doing any beachfront property on the east coast if you're on coastal North Carolina. And you're a voter if you're on coastal Georgia and your voter anywhere in coastal Florida voter and you're not thinking about that as an issue like you're just wanting to give away your most valuable asset and the thing that you know brings you probably the most joy so I don't I find it. Yes you should. Yes the Kentucky voter the West Virginia voter the Pennsylvania voter who works in coal country. Sure how they're valuable but these these there are tons of people who are going to be affected by climate change. You know if you're in Colorado and there are droughts that are hitting you and your you cannot farm farm the way you wanted to farm. People need to be attuned to their economic interests. And be think. Oh Yeah. That's actually important voting issue for me which they're not right now right but it but if we look at those six states we talked about earlier. Michigan Pennsylvania Wisconsin Arizona only Florida and North Carolina fit in the basket. That you're talking talking about so if you were having to make a calculation of what your overall position was that swept in as many states as possible. I think you would have. You would have to be more are worried about how that that message would be received in manufacturing centres states more than coastal states particularly. If you're a Democrat in your coastal at least I you think this your coastal votes may already be with you in Florida support for the fest comes from. Hbo Quick Smart News.

"one year" Discussed on Slate's Political Gabfest
"The kind of Voters that might have even been part of the trump coalition in the states or whether the Democratic Party by being true to its principles and and kind of more liberal vision can blow low through turnout models change the shape of the electorate in those six dates and other places with a kind of Warren or sanders type candidate. I have a question about the the idea of how significant this poll is a year out nate cones the Times reporter. Who did the palm talking about? It said hey a year out is is basically just as good as right before the election and then need silver. The grew fivethirtyeight said polls a year out like not not that not that that reality based not that important. What's the answer here? I first of all the answer is the pollinger is need to get different first names. It's too confusing to have both nate Cohn silber ever be named nate. Just a problem to actually. I feel like natone nate. Cohn has has. I Know Nate Cohn I've met needs over a couple of times. Cocoon is definitely riding on the coattails of nate silver. He's like oh where's the what's Hot Poli Name. It's nate. I'M GONNA I'm GonNa glommed onto that and the time hired him you don't offense would appreciate the answer to this John. One of these polls year out matter don't matter there's a general principle and then I don't know I didn't see what nate silver of fivethirtyeight sad I did read in The Times. The idea the statement that I and I have a note here go check checking out and see if that's in fact true or if there's like some important caveat but yeah the the the article that went along with the polling said that on average in the last three cycles head to head polls Aguirre ahead of the election have been as close to the final result as those taken the day before The final result I just say like tweet. You know what Posey are out there. But I'm not sure will first of all there aren't polls taken the day before I don't think right because the polls released as the deport but anyway the broader more important point is so much changes in happens. You can't I mean you can set. You can say that. That's been what they result in the the past has been but if there's an instance in which past performance does not predict future results in this current political environment. I think that would be wise to keep in mind in that in that context But I do think the idea that if the electoral college is still in play a in our presidential elections than it is important to look at the at the states that will that will matter Attar with respect to the Electoral College. So I think looking at these six states Makes Sense and then we should probably turn to this idea of what's the actual electric look like. And then WHO's best setup to make the case that electric I thought what was the most interesting thing. Innate cones piece accompanying this story about. His poll was noting. What what kind of people seem to be supporting Biden but not Warren or Warren but not Biden and yeah and that you have the categories of for example? There's sanders seems to pick up a bunch of young voters when you poll who don't want to then vote for Wariner Biden and Biden seems to pick up Like a lot of people who don't seem to WanNa vote for a woman. For example there seems to be a lot of just out and out cold stone sexist in the electorate which was horrified to read forty percent of the people there are six percent of the electorate is by not Warren and forty percent of them was answering yes to questions that made them seem like sexist Texas questions about the ability of Warren and female candidates in general. But and I've said this before but this is basically votes in the Democratic primaries and caucuses are going to be about punditry about what your neighbour thinks so you know Democrats are are by wide majorities fine with having a woman president but they don't think that their fellow Democrats Democrats are fine with having a woman president which means when they vote or the casting vote for the person they think should do the job or they doing the casting vote for the person they think. We'll have the best chance in general unroll action because of people's predispositions about women and that's what a mess that isn't trying to sort that out. Good luck with that. John What do you make of the fact that so this. The poll a swing states included the six states Wisconsin Pennsylvania Michigan Carolina Florida Arizona. It did not include Georgia Texas and Ohio. which are an an Iowa? So I think the presumption being that Ohio an Iowa are now basically Republican states. And it's going to be. They're not really swing states and that but also there's this at least conversation that I hear among people that Georgia and Texas are potentially in play and Arizona certainly played. Do I guess it means it's it's it's making taking some bats on two things one. Is that basically. The shape of the electric highway in Ohio is just Democrats are never gonNA do well enough to reach far enough into the white working class voters in those states or white borough voters in Iowa to beat. Also you've got you've got a Senate race in Iowa that'll with an incumbent Republican that'll tweak things for the for the Democrats and so although by the way we should note but just as a farm state. Here's we should talk about this. If you look inside the Republican coalition it seems to me. Democrats would have some opportunities. Let's talk about role voters for a moment. Bankruptcies for farms are going to be as high as they as they've ever been in two thousand nineteen the bail out to the farmers is now bigger net- net- than the bail out of the car companies under the Obama Administration because of the fight with China and the tariff battles with with with other countries if you were compelling candidate Who could make the case to a rural voters and you believed and again? We're there's some. There's there's some things implicit in what I'm saying that some people don't believe because some people leave these voters are gone at. It's all about identity not economics in there for. Why should Democrat spend a lot of time doing that but back to your basic point David? The Republican coalition has those two states and the Democrat. Coalition doesn't have enough in Georgia and Texas that this cycle. They'll be able to make inroads inroads if you believe in a warren kind of candidacy a pure base rile the base up candidacy which is essentially what trump is running on the republican side. You could try to make a case as for Georgia and taxes but the problem is if you run heavy towards turning out the liberal coalition in those states you would weaken your ability so goes the theory in six states that are are that are closest and that's another reason they picked these six that have a more mixed Electorate as the time sees it and most people only last question on this this topic so John Eight in New York magazine. Some Subsection York magazine. I can't remember which one concludes that the leftward tilt of the Democrat. Kennedy is turning out to be a disaster that they've lost touch with medium voters. They desperately need to get back to the center before they find themselves with unelectable candidate. Is it the case Warren and Sanders or essentially given themselves iron crosses. They've hung iron crosses around their neck for the general election. I find myself wishing that more mourn had not come up with a Medicare for all tax plan like really wish that she had just said. It'll be magic which is what Republicans say all the time but their plans. It's always like oh it'll be. Bajic could economic growth magic. She'll she'll be able to run away from that or is it really something that is going to drag her. I mean people move to the The ideological edge of their parties in primaries right Republicans moved to the right Democrats moved to the left the ideas and you tack to the Center and the general election. There's there's plenty of time. I do wonder about what these candidates are thinking in terms of not sticking with the most popular positions now now. Obviously Warren wants to be able to attract Bernie Sanders voters. And you know I with zero reporting. You could imagine that she is trying to make sure sure that. If and when Zander's drops out he full-throatedly endorses her and so she becomes the candidate of the left. I also think she believes in Medicare for all and yet. There is so much that these Democratic candidates could do for healthcare or for example on immigration with a path to citizenship. That is broadly popular happyhiller. That one wonders whether it would be politically wiser to stick to those positions. I mean this is a question that people like Maddock laziest at Fox have been asking for months and and when they put up the poll numbers every time it looks pretty persuasive to me. As just a matter of pragmatic politics looks for Jason Fitz sticking with broadly sadly popular positions that are more centrist. And that actually could become law would be smarter like we are not going to immediately have medicare for all so we're having They're taking Warren and Sanders. Particularly Warrant are taking a big political risk for something that doesn't seem particularly reality based and so then does it. Is it really necessary. Ray was so this is as you quite rightly pointed out. This is always the problem with primaries. It's why people have Think the primaries are part of the reason. Our politics are so messed up because everybody has to get into a very not only far left but also detached debate as a way to signal to their electorates that they are more pure than the next wchs person to your point emily about the environments can look like a year from now. Let's imagine a Democrat wins. Okay so Democrat wins. If they win it will have been on a restoration ticket which is to say. We're going to fix things post. Donald trump that gives you a huge to do is just start the the day. Okay before you get to Medicare for all you've got a lot of stuff to do to restore store and by the way most of it's going to be overseas and some large portion of it's going to be secret so there's that second of all the the intervening election over the year next year is is going to be scorched earth. So how you're GonNa get this through a medicare for all through Congress even through trying to use reconciliation after that year seems a more unlikely really than even would be today. As you quite rightly said Emily you go to you go to the left or you go to the left the right in your primaries and come back to the middle but that also depends on a you know. Politics has changed a little bit in terms of the Public Square. When you can make that case that you're not exactly the person you ran in the primaries as being it's harder to do that now secondly which should these candidates has the facility and ability to make that case or do they keep stepping on there? You know there are other shoes tied together. And so that's one question. Can they even get back back to that position. And then the question is what do you guys think that position looks like in the general election for a Democrat to to either undermine the president's coalition or to build success in areas like the suburbs Where you've seen some of these opportunities for Democrats are I cannot let the segment paths John on without noting what is surely the most important electoral result from Tuesday surprising result out of New Haven Connecticut which just elected in nineteen eighteen year old a nineteen year old one? It's all doors and this nineteen year old one a staggering ninety percent of the vote. What do you make of the overwhelming mandate mandate one by? Eli Sabin whose mother is noted political commentator Emily Babylon just how significant do you feel victory for the future of the republic. Well fortunately playing for for all those people who feel jittery about the state of the future and the state of the Republic really about whether there is verifiable truth fin these troubled times that we live in. Now I think not just the people in the In the quiet suburbs of new haven and the urban centers of that city but also really across the country in the world can find themselves Sleeping easier now as a result of that Outcome Emily Mazal Tov. Congratulations on on your son's victory. Thank you my son is now in our city council. So it's GonNa be really interesting to watch. Ally is so excited and thrilled. We get listeners.

"Me visually but not physically. Is Emily Baz Lan of the New York Times magazine looking at over over skype. Hello Emily although although David Jail how are you. I'm good glad to be here and then joining me not visually but telephonically John dickerson of CBS. Sixty minutes from New York New York Hello John dickerson. Hello David I Is it telephonically. Come come on God interesting radio telephone telephonic. Oh my God you're dripping. You're being pedantic already on. Today's Gabfest election results in Kentucky and Virginia and bold and Democrats and then there are discouraging poll results in swing estates for Democratic presidential candidates then impeachment barrels forward. What happened this week? What is about to happen? And then president trump withdraws ause the United States from the Paris climate accord is that catastrophic or merely terrible plus. You'll have cocktail chatter one year from this this week we will have elected a new president or possibly the same president and this week we saw the last major elections before twenty twenty in a bunch of states that weirdly weirdly have off your elections which are always cute but confusing. Because you're like it's an odd year. Why is there an election? But it's still nice to have and then we also saw some very interesting gene and if you're a Democrat alarming poll results for Democratic primary challenges. So let's start with With the two thousand nine hundred John in the Commonwealth of Virginia cradle title of the Republic the cradle in fact John Dickerson. Democrats took control of the State Senate in the State House Why is that important? Why is it overdue isn't important and overdue? Well I think it's it's important. Well it's for the first time in fifty years so that's when any any time anything for the first time in fifty years you should take note of it. Basically most people would say what this does is it ends the charade that Virginia is not a blue state you know it went from being red to purple to blue and so they're saying that it's that it's Now a blue state and that. I don't know what I think about that debate. That's fine you can have that debate the most interesting thing. It seems to me about Virginia Virginia to the two most important results are first of all that the that Republicans did not win back the seats that they lost in two thousand seventeen when Democrats. It's had strong showings in Republican areas and then Democrats won in additional areas to take control over The two state houses you you now have the to stay two houses in the governorship all insane party which means there's going to be a series of series of legislation passed in Virginia on On Gun Control Troll in particular that'll be Very interesting to watch. Why is that interesting because of the second thing so the first point is Democrats are showing strength? Republicans weakness is in the exurbs the areas out suburbs outside. And that's something we'll talk a lot about because it was also strong for Democrats in Kentucky in the argument is that if it's been strong consistently gently in two thousand eighteen and twenty nineteen that's bad for Donald Trump. But the second thing that's important in Virginia's it's the home of the NRA the forces of gun control gun safety fifty. Whatever you WANNA call it basically now have beaten the NRA in their own backyard? That would mean a lot for gun legislation in Virginia and for the For for the everytown organization it. It's a model for inroads. They might be able to make in other states emily quickly. Let's also hit the. I think probably the other our big state for Democrats. This week was Kentucky where the Democrat in a very red state beat the extremely hated. Incumbent Governor Matt Bevin then in a state where president trump campaign and try to tie the Democrat Anti Bashir to impeachment trump had won the state by thirty Republicans. Want every single single other statewide office. that was up is Bevan's loss a warning trumper not really. Is it just like a particular particular set of circumstances with an extremely bad and hated incumbent. I think more of the latter you know. I wonder if people think differently friendly about the governor in some circumstances than the sort of normal party polarized politics that we have you know. I'm thinking of the fact that a Democrat is governor in Kansas or Republican governor of Massachusetts. There's a way in which that administrative job can. I think seems a little less political will than some other positions and I mostly just think that. Yeah what you said. There was an extremely unpopular incumbent. It's true the president trump couldn't save him but he had been his zone worst enemy. It's a great question but the what I think will be interesting. Is If you match the suburban and exurban results in Kentucky with with what happened with in Virginia and then what happened in the same areas with the same kind of voters in eighteen whether it's demonstrably true that that will all play out the same way in two thousand twenty it suggests enough data points that it puts high and heavy uncertainty in the air for Republican senators who are running in twenty twenty and places where they are. They're gonNA depend on thinking of people. Cory Gardner Susan Collins running in states where they need those votes and if Donald Trump and the Republican Party of Donald Donald Trump has consistently been showing weaknesses in those areas again whether it actually plays out that way in two thousand twenty. I think it's going to make some nervousness and change perhaps perhaps some calculations over the next year as Republicans worry about becoming a party that is justified by the trump coalition which is essentially non college whites Evangelical and rural voters and that nervousness. Again whether it's true or not will create some some Potential for some more more destabilizing action among Republicans Possibly actually. I had a question about that. John is John Cornyn for election. Yes twenty twenty. Yeah I mean that's when when I look at what John Cornyn is doing which is to not be as full-throated around impeachment as you nearly expect the number two Republican in the Senate. He's a Texas Republican. I that to me is a signal. He is very worried that that he you know he could face something serious again. These are these linkages we should all these are drawn in in Pencil and very lightly. But but I would also link it to what what I went on at some length about with Mitch McConnell. The a couple of weeks ago when he was asked About the conversation the president said he had with McConnell and McConnell basically through the president under the bus. I think you can. If you start to see a number of these things you see some Can whether the distancing from the president is even possible. I think that's quite hard to do for anybody. But but just the more uncertainty and destabilization. Shen there is in the world added to the existing highly destabilizing behavior of the president. And the people who are defending him it just adds more kind of frenetic possibilities in an already pretty frantic political world As everybody's trying to gauge what. The politics are going to look like a on election day a year from now now that puts so much uncertainty in in the system for Republicans to see this weakness repeated in these areas that used to be part of their coalition. And yet if you Dr Cory Gardner or Susan Collins or even John Cornyn. Aren't you kind of caught in a vice like you can try to put some distance between you and the So you know I would say most like crazy. Two defenders of trump like mark meadows. Who just seem to be saying? I mean and Lindsey Graham like I am in lockstep with the president no matter what he says says. I'm going in that direction. They're stepping back from that but in the end like there will presumably be an impeachment trial in the Senate and it's very hard to imagine agean than currently voting to remove from office president trump. Now I do think that could change. I mean we saw a public approval of President Nixon drastically graphically moved downward during the public hearings in Watergate but I just feel like from the vantage point of right now. This is like the either Angel or devil of being a trump supporter or a Republican senator. In the trump era. You may be trying to maintain some what kind of semblance of separation. But how far is that really going to get you. Whether a candidate any candidate can separate themselves in a nationalized election and we have them even even an off year so of course we're going to have on twenty twenty is I think basically most people have been in the game. Say You can't do it. You can't get out from under a president however candidates it's in fear of not being re-elected Tend to do things you know. They'd Throw Hail Mary passes. And you know Cory Gardner in Colorado which is basically. He's basically a one third one third state so Democrat Independent. Republican split the state in thirds John Hickenlooper who's running against the former governor and Mayor of Denver is a very popular popular fellow in the state. So Cory Gardner you could imagine again. If even if you stipulate that you can't get out from under a president may still try and and why does that matter. Well that's one guy in one state well for Colorado is a battleground state second of all as we know from this president when a when one person does thing something that that he doesn't like Mike he goes after them so then it becomes. You can imagine that growing into something more. Because then he's attacking a Republican. What's Mitch McConnell? Say about that and so on and so forth so so It's it's it's just as I say a possibility for destabilization. I want to touch emily on. What is potentially the most alarming alarming aspect of the vote on Tuesday which is as of Wednesday actually? Didn't look this morning. There was there was intimations hints even open statements from Republican legislators in Kentucky that they might not accept the results of that gubernatorial election. And there's a the one of the leaders in the Republican House. This is trying to conflict this into a contested election. which was you know about five thousand votes separating the the Democrat and Republican And the stunning the possibility that the how the Kentucky legislature which is dominated by Republicans might try to overturn the popular vote. I actually don't think this will succeed. Eight for a couple of even if they make real push it at which there's no sign they're going to one is Bevin has been a lousy governor even for Republicans. He's made them more unpopular. He's been unpopular blur himself. So why keep them in. Their second is actually fun to have a democratic governor of the rival party in some ways especially if you have a majority in the legislature. I just love. You can really mess with them and score points off of that person and that that's kind of good way to spend a couple of years sometimes so it's not. It's not that bad to be in the out party if you have the majority party in the legislature but also. I don't think it's effective to cheat in elections. After the fact I think it's very effective to suppress the votes in advance when it can be dressed step as some kind of principle of voter integrity but after the fact when the votes already counted the numbers are there it is not. I think it's going to look a lot like cheating. If they try to push uh-huh yeah would in fact be cheating and like deeply alarming. If this happened you know I will just note Kentucky already. Does one one thing to suppress the vote which is to close the polls at six PM. You know. I I think that you're right. This isn't GonNa go anywhere but the fact that it's even being discussed discussed it's just these signs. Were getting from states. I mean we've gotten them also from Wisconsin and of course like the Queen of this is North Carolina. Where if you don't like the way the game is being played you just like throw the board up into the air and all the pieces fall and some other place you just change the rules roles? You know I don't know enough about Kentucky Law to know how the governor's powers are distributed and who decides but you could really imagine this legislature trying to clip the wings of this new Democrat coming in in much the way that the North Carolina Republican dominated legislature has has done that for Roy. Cooper the governor there now let us turn my friends to the polls for the presidential campaign from one kind of Paul to another kind of Paul. There was a really really interesting poll in the New York. Times of Swing States John this week looking at how various Democratic presidential candidates might perform against President Trump and Wisconsin content Pennsylvania Michigan North Carolina Florida and Arizona. Interesting that Arizona is a very legit swing state in a way. That Ohio for example doesn't seem to be anymore why we're Democrats so agitated by the results of this poll and is it is this one poll significant it's Let's see how to pack. Okay so why are they agitated. Well they're agitated because Biden's only up by a couple of points over trump in these six states let's see sanders was up a little bit and and Warren was down so I think there was agitation for two reasons. One Biden up wasn't wasn't by as much as as people thought. Warren was down and three and this is the bigger point I think is a lot of people think. Stop looking at and thinking thinking about the election in that way stopped takes basically boiling the entire election down to six states full of larger shares of white working class voters because that's it's not what. The electorate is about an implicit in even doing the poll among some Democrats is the idea that that or they would argue that the Times poll kind of has its thumb on the scale in terms of this larger argument about whether the Democratic Party needs to quote unquote moderate to go for the kinds of voters in those six states or go go for.
"one year" Discussed on Today, Explained
"The first half of this show talking about the Democrats and and where they stand right now one year away from the election and I just wonder where does Donald Trump stand right now with the American people what are is approval ratings what's extraordinary is Donald trump stands exactly where he stood more or less for the entire time of his presidency we've never had a president in the post World War Two period who's been an as stable and as non volatile in approval ratings his lowest I think is around thirty seven is high around forty four forty five so you know he's in the upper range but he's been there for quite a while and I think the big note there's we've had a lot of stories happening recently right in Ukraine impeachment and Bughdadi and even as US filter into the ratings nothing's happening which is to say people have decided if they like Donald trump or not and nothing that they are learning earning or have learned over the past couple years seems to have changed that underlying structure of opinion in any real way I can imagine the people who support Donald Trump our unwavering because things like Moller probe and Ukraine and send her back and even you know good people on both sides don't really get in the way of love his appointing Supreme Court justices which he's done or tax cuts for the rich which is done but what about other stuff like the wall I mean he hasn't accomplished that in over two years of his presidency does that affect him in some way pulling is always hard to get to the heart of what people people really think ride we only have this number and it is an imperfect summation of people's use but I suspect that on something like the wall the way Donald Trump's supporters understand that is not the Donald Trump is built the wall but that the lame stream media the failing New York Times the do nothing Democrats have stopped Donald well trump from building the wall mayor he is out there fighting on their behalf trying to get the wall built and he's at war with deep state and the swamp and everyone else I mean donald trump typically does not get blamed for a lot of what he does it's why I think one of the few things that did appear to hurt him was the House Republican healthcare bill because that was something we're Donald Trump during the campaign at promised he would not cut medicaid he promised he would give everyone better health insurance and then he signed onto this bill he signed on he supported this bill written by Paul Ryan that would've taken health insurance away from tens of millions the people that would not have been better for people that would not have predicted preexisting conditions it would cut cut medicaid very dramatically so that was a moment where the ability to say Donald Trump is being stopped by others and that is why he is not doing what he promised evaporated and you had to say Oh Donald Trump is actually betraying his promise and that seemed to have an effect it's why when you talk to Democrats they want to run against donald trump's embrace of more traditional Republican policies on healthcare and the economy and tax cuts and other things they don't want to run against the craziness of the trump show the tweets the eccentric behavior because to them the people who don't like him for those resort you don't like him I'm the place where you can find new allies new votes are on the people who there's a dissonance between what they wanted Donald trump to do and what he has been doing and it's donald trump's embrace of the traditional traditional conservative agenda that you can begin to open up that wedge is it unusual for president have such steady approval ratings or did Obama have a thirty forty percent margin that he just could never lose no matter what he did it is unusual and there couple of reasons is unusual so one is that Obama for instance had much bigger swings round his early honeymoon period rate very high approval ratings which Donald Trump never had and there are some bigger swings around things like killing Osama bin Laden but it is also true that most of the time Obama was in a fairly narrow band so if you look at the course of his presidency you would see a larger potential variation variation but if you looked at any given month you would not see a huge difference from where Donald Trump is Obama was somewhat more popular than trump and somewhat more popular in trump amidst a much worse economy which which suggests to me that trump is underperforming potential approval ratings quite dramatically thing I'd say about Donald Trump's approval ratings in the big picture is that he is in a condition right now where he should be quite strong he has a pretty good economy unemployment is quite low historically we have had steady job job growth we've had steady GDP growth even in las year to reasonable wage growth so that plus the fact that we are not currently embroiled in a huge new war or I think one of the good things I will say about Donald Trump did not take the advice of any of his administration and try to go to war with Iran you could imagine a precedent in these conditions fifty five percent not seventy percent given the structure partisan politician but fifty five the fact that he's at forty two speaks to the effect that his own unusual behavior his tweeting his fights his eccentricities his recklessness it speaks to the fact that he's not tough law that that has imposed a cost penalty on his approval ratings and the thing I was thinking about Donald Trump is that he did not win in two thousand sixteen by much he did not win the popular vote at all and even in Pennsylvania you would have had to change about forty thousand votes for Donald Trump to lose two and so it was such a close election and the demographic trends are sufficiently in Democrats favor that trump to get reelected into twenty twenty he doesn't need to match his performance in two thousand sixteen he needs to do better than it and there's no evidence in his polling that he has expanded his base a thing I tend to think about from time to time people exist in this country who voted for Barack Obama and then several years later voted for Donald Trump which I guess often amazes people outside of this country how do the Democrats win those particular voters back so there's a huge amount of research now and attention on this quite small percentage of voters who switched from Obama to trump and particularly in mid west states my read of that research overall suggests that in general these were voters who were reasonably high and what social scientists racial resentment and you might say yeah well how could they elect Barack Obama then and the answer is that feeling away about a group of people doesn't always Dr Phil about one person Obama did a lot of work to calm white anxieties to sort of appear people as somebody who was operating outside of some traditional enmities you could kind of feel like you're getting past some of that when Hillary Clinton ran a much more explicit elicit campaign arguing in favor of black lives matter talking about systematic racism systemic racism on the campaign trail those voters who are higher earn racial resentment and have more intensely negative views about immigration whenever Donald Trump I do not know how winnable they are if you talk to Bernie any sanders or no Elizabeth Warren what they will tell you is that those voters were upset by Washington support for free trade deals they weren't helped enough by democratic policies over the past ten years and a more unvarnished for economic populism will win them back you talk to Joe Biden but he won't tell you but I think what is believed to be true there is uncle Joe so is a sort of an older white guy comforting figure these folks believe he's on their side like maybe move over to him I think that it is a mistake for Democrats to think about this all all in terms of winning the last war they'll probably get some of these people back and by running a different campaign and running more popular candidate than Hillary Clinton they can get some of them back but they also would have won on the election if African American turnout had been at the levels it was under Barack Obama that's probably very hard to reconstitute but it's not necessarily impossible parties really come back from a defeat and the way you expect them to so after two thousand and four there was this huge belief that Democrats had lost white evangelical heartland voters and you know maybe they'd become to open to gay marriage or they were too socially liberal and you know John Kerry was in a feet you know french-speaking windsurfing etcetera etcetera and there's this whole discourse party about becoming more culturally conservative and economically populist and then who actually wins it's an African American guy with with the Middle Name Hussein from Chicago right like that was not anywhere in the theory but that's what they did so I suspect that if Democrats win in twenty twenty it will not be because they managed to reverse engineer Donald Trump's victory but they nominated a candidate who in being themselves and exciting interesting interesting unique political force created their own political dynamics donald trump had to respond to and was not quite able to and what do you think that dynamics should be I don't know I I think what's really important is that Democrats do not just run anti-trump I think that the Democrats need to have a vision and a theory and an an inspirational charge of their own and if they don't have that that creates a lot of space for trump to dominate the conversation I think the biggest mistake Democrats could make would be need to be constantly reactive to whatever grenade donald trump is logged on twitter that morning I mean if you look in two thousand eight I would not say that what Barack Obama ran non was an extraordinarily ambitious policy gender imbalance in the way the presidential engines earned bishops but he himself represented something in politics at excited people he ran on a theory of how politics could be how could look how we could relate to each other how we could fix it and that generated a momentum that really reshaped shaped American Politics for eight years and I think that what Democrats are going to need to do is to not just sit around clapping back donald trump but but have something that in in its ambition in its intensity in its controversy sets the conversation on their terms the one of the only times Donald Trump is actually reactive democrats is when he is arguing against their socialism one of the Times he response and so the ways in which I think particularly Warren Sanders are able to use big ambitious policies to set the agenda such it it's at least a conversation happening on terms I think that's powerful I think some of the other candidates are able to do it in some other ways sometimes but certainly they're the two who've been able to set the terms of democratic debate debate and I think as a kind of Meta level of the campaign being able to set the terms of the debate is a genuinely important qualification for them crowd and Twenty Twenty.
"one year" Discussed on The Ross Bolen Podcast
"If not for you guys, neither Mike or I would be employed, and that's just real talk. This show has changed my life in a more positive way than anything else aside from meeting Taylor lane. That is also real talking. I mean that from the bottom of my heart. I found my calling when I found this show. And I don't mean podcasting. I've found that with the wasters clams and cockles shout out to the clam fan. But I mean, like, my voice, my real calling and how I can use my voice to not just make people laugh, but teach people and teach myself about random, interesting shit and most importantly help people to realize they're not alone in the world. No matter what they're going through whether that'd be loss, depression, anxiety, addiction, whatever it may be there's always hope out there. And they're literally literally millions of other people going through the same things you are to varying degrees. Of course, in some cases, in some cases, much much much much fucking worse than anything that you could be going through. So. It just all this is to say in a little under a year, according to soundcloud, we've done it says like eleven months on soundcloud. But I think that might just be changing any day now to twelve months we've done over three million downloads. And that's not accounting for a lot of shit like Spotify that those numbers are not included. So from inception to the year one three fucking million. It's just it's it's crazy to me. I love what we've created here. I love this show. I love being the head of a crime syndicate that ransacked japodlay restaurants for napkins and Tabasco this holiday season. Honestly may be the most blessed I've ever felt in my fucking life. Even considering that this was not the easiest views and not the easiest of the last couple of months. It's been pretty rough actually and all in all I have all of you to think. So let's fucking go. And I just wanted to say, thank you. Hopefully this week once at some point I wanna get I got to get permission from the appropriate parties. But I'm going to be announcing a very cool giveaway in honor of our one year birthday that you'll absolutely want to be looking out for the only hint. I can give is that it sneaker related, but I'll talk more about it when I can't. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the show today because this one and literally every single ever one ever is for you. Next segment your top songs two thousand eighteen so all of you probably aware at this point as of a few days ago Spotify released their deal that they do every single year, which is where they give us all these numbers and stats on what we listened to over the course of this calendar year, and there's like individualized ones that you can get you..

"Support for di andrews podcast on my mind comes from keppel inner foundation supporting public understanding of business and the economy hi it's diane so great to be back with you on my mind this week it's been one year since the inauguration of president trump earlier this week i invited ford topnotch political commentators for a panel discussion i wanted to hear about how they thought our country and change and get their perspective on many of the challenges ahead in the studio with me norm ornstein of the american enterprise institute one as summers said cnn and byron york of the washington examiner maggie haberman of the new york times joins us from a studio in new york and here's our conversation nor i'm going to his start with you looking back on donald trump's first year what do you think will all standout most in your memory and in my memory it is a how all of the conditions in government design to keep a presidency from careening out of control from moving step by step towards things that are more autocratic from preventing the kind of corruption inside the presidency a kleptocracy a keeping government functioning at a reasonable level have gone awry and as much as anything it's not just the president and even the president's administration it's the congress just reading the other day a catalogue of the ways in which the president and his family have enriched themselves and foreign governments have fallen all over them cells to try and provide money for him so that they can get in his good graces or may be use it in another way congress has held zero hearings on any of this i look at some of the nominees who have been confirmed judges and cabinet in subcabinet people who didn't get the kind of vetting that we normally anticipate and so i end up with some very profound concerns at the end of the year that go beyond simply trump himself.
