"To participate in the largest conservative Get out the vote Evert effort ever. We're certainly seeing a ton of traffic to the website, and it's because Americans understand that, you know, elections were won by thousands, not millions. So when you think back to 2016, Michigan was one by 11,000 votes. Wisconsin was won by 23,000 votes and Pennsylvania by 44,000 votes. This election is going to be even more close. America is on the ballot, and that's why it's so important that we get out and vote. I also think they're going to be a number of house districts that her hand a handful of votes, not thousands, but that tens scores of boats and that may control the way that the House of representatives go.

Report on Trump’s tax avoidance shakes up presidential race ahead of Tuesday night’s debate
"Tomorrow night is the first presidential debate will take place in Cleveland between President Trump and Joe Biden. As both parties gear up for the debate. The report on President Trump's taxes in The New York Times likely to be a big topic of conversation, the saga Bugatti with more on that report, as well as its potential impact with voters, revelations that President Trump paid no income taxes in several recent years could hurt his standing with blue collar voters in several key states. The allegations cut to the heart of his appeal, with many voters in places like Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan. Even before the revelations, Joe Biden was highlighting his own middle class roots and painting the president as a con man who lied to his blue collar backers.

Pelosi Prepares For Rare Chance House Could Decide Election
"Pelosi has officially informed the Democratic Party caucus that the House of Representatives could decide the presidential election. After all, it seems almost certain that neither party will accept a close result in the election on November 3rd and given likely delays due to the Vote by mail recounts in some states has to be postmarked by election Day. Some day. Some have to be in by election Day. It's almost impossible to see we'll have a decision on election night, and then there's legal challenges that could delay even further. And it could come down to what Nancy Pelosi says is the 12th amendment on that is it happened before? I think in 1818 20 for the 12th amendment. States that if no numbers Not exceeding three or four on the list have achieved a majority. You take the top three no more than three of the highest And Congress then decides the word immediately means that the current Congress would choose not the one signed in in January. That, in turn would seem to me that the speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, and the majority Democrats would prevail and certainly picked Joe Biden, but not so fast. The 12th Amendment goes further in choosing the president, it says the vote shall be taken by the states, the representation from each state having one vote. Now we may be talking about foreign and 35 representatives. But there are only 50 states and the current tally of representatives in each state shows that more Republican majority delegations exists and Democrat majority delegations. In fact, Republicans controlled 26 state delegations. Democratstwenty, too, and meanwhile, Pennsylvania and is tied in Michigan only has a 76 democratic plurality. That may explain a lot of the focus in Pennsylvania and in Michigan, But again, it would be the current house.

Tax bombshell reveals Trump's image is a sham
"In federal income tax is the year he ran for office and paid zero income taxes at all in many other years. Threatened to undercut his campaign. But the allegations go to the very heart of Mr Trump's appeal, especially among blue collar voters in states like Pennsylvania, Wisconsin in Michigan, who propelled him to the presidency in 2016. Joining us now is a B C's, Adam, Kelsey and first off How did Mr Trump get away with not paying his taxes? Well, Jeff what it comes down to is ah lot of reductions in the amount of taxable income that President Trump has because he takes so many loans because of so many investments in companies that that Are not necessarily under his name. He can write off. Ah, lot of the income that ends up coming back into him. So what you've got here is 10 out of the past 15 years for which The New York Times had these tax records from 2017 going all the way back to 2000 to 10 of those 15 years, President Trump As you mentioned did not pay federal income taxes. There was ah, year or two in which he did pay tens of millions of dollars in taxes to the IRS actually returned that to trump upwards of $70 million in a refund that he claimed he was due again, based on some risky investments that he made the the IRS rules and regulations allow into claim those as Boston coming. Those were returned. So now that $70 million is the subject of an audit, there's a debate between the president. Oh, and his own federal government over how much you may have to pay back. But the bigger picture that you were mentioning is that this really strikes at the heart of what's so many Trump supporters liked about him that he was a successful businessman, a self proclaimed billionaire and looking through these financial records, it would. Actually it paints the picture of somebody who, instead of being worth billions of dollars could oh, upwards of billions of dollars to several different Ah, loners of money. You've got hundreds of millions of dollars and Loans for buildings that President Trump owns in New York City and across the country that are going to be coming due in the next couple of years. It's raising some questions today about whether or not it's such a good idea to have a president United States it would be on the hook for such a big deal coming up. Is anything in the president's tax is illegal. What did we find any legal wrongdoing? There was all hit all his deductions and everything he did above board. Ah, lot of it is above board. And that's that's one of the major criticism that's being levied today Is that the same Ah senators, congressmen who are criticizing President Trump for pains so little were in some ways the architects of the affluent tax loopholes that he and his accounts were able to take. But there are some questions about some of the moves. He's made one in particular, that's been getting a lot of traction and social media for the past 24 hours. His payments that President Trump me do his daughter Ivanka. She's obviously an employee of the Trump administration. She was receiving a regular salary, but in addition was receiving money for consulting work that President Trump then turned around and tried to take off his taxes basically as a refund, So there's some questions there. About whether you know that this double dipping is potentially fraudulent, and whether either Ivanka Trump shouldn't have been receiving those consulting fees or of President Trump shouldn't have been writing those off tax. How is the president defended his actions. All the kneejerk reaction yesterday was that this was fake news to which critics of the president said. Well, if this isn't true, if these aren't your tax returns, all you need to do is turn over your realtor tax returns and proved that the New York Times is wrong on this. Obviously, the president hasn't done this and then The resulting hours we've seen, you know a lot of deflection. We've seen the president and his Children going on television and talking instead about Joe Biden and his son, Hunter and Hunter Biden dealings with With Russia and with businesses in the Ukraine so instead of kind of head on addressing these issues, trying to distract the media if you will to talk about different matters instead. But I wouldn't anticipate that with the first presidential debate coming up about 24 hours from now, Tuesday evening, we're certainly gonna cure President Trump have to answer for this situation. All right. That's a B, C's and Kelsey. Thank you so much for joining us. Come on

I'll let Christian explain. Stuff, it's Christian Sagar. If some of Earth's most barren wastelands could be transformed into dense productive forests by the most unlikely of helpers discarded fruit peels. It sounds like wishful thinking but that's exactly what happened in the nineteen nineties during promising ecological experiment orange juice manufacturer del Oro plunked twelve thousand metric tonnes. It's around thirteen thousand, two, hundred, twenty, eight tonnes of orange peels on top of bleak Costa Rican Pastureland eventually transforming it into a lush fertile forest but it's a success story that almost wasn't told del Oro donated a seven Acre or three.

The site sign was so covered with vines in the land.

In Year by pasture that wasn't treated with peels, the researchers found that the treated area had richer soil more tree biomass and a broader variety of tree species including a fig tree with a circumference equivalent to three arm spans. The precise reasons for this one, hundred and seventy six percent increase in above ground biomass are still being investigated but the researchers contend dumping massive amounts of nutrient. Rich organic waste had a nearly immediate effect on the land's fertility changing its lifeless soil into a thick rich loamy mixture. The researchers proposed it's also probable that the orange peel suppressed growth of an invasive grass that was keeping the forest from flourishing.

Following the fire hit witness the literal rebuilding of London. Following that and seeing how the city could be rebuilt. Pet had a lifelong interest in city design. This would manifest in Philadelphia. Far, from being the haphazard city whose Latte was based on unpredictable and sporadic growth. Philadelphia was more or less a master designed city. Philadelphia would quickly begin to grow and expand, and by the time seventeen fifty rolled around it would have the largest population of any city in the North American British colonies. Pennsylvania was further located at a strategically important spot within North America. Located between the southern colonies such as Virginia and the Carolinas and the northern colonies in new. England and New York Pennsylvania was any position to be a trading hub virtually from its very conception.

"Located in Columbia County Pennsylvania. Centralia story began in eighteen. Forty one as coal boomtown community called Bull's head full said was later incorporated as a borough of Centralia and eighteen sixty six by the local coal companies who mind the rich anthracite coal from the area surrounding the small town for the town of Centralia. These rich deposits of anthracite coal proof to be kind of a double edged sword because in one thousand nine hundred sixty to a trash fire in strip mine beneath Centralia. Pennsylvania started burning. The fire has actually been going ever cents causing strange dangerous occurrences in the ground beneath the city. Coal seam fires aren't really anything unusual. I mean they really happen all over the world and our many others in the state of Pennsylvania alone however this fire is still burning under the town and it's been burning for decades before residents really understood what was going on or realized it was dangerous when a twelve year. Old Centralia Resident Todd. Dombrowski fell into a sinkhole that opened up in his backyard and nearly died. Concern finally kicked in and the townsfolk decided. It was getting to be a serious problem. I Guess Oh oh my Gosh I mean think you know. There's a fire under the city. We should leave. Yeah that's by first clue. I mean that's what I think but you know maybe not I guess not so the steam puffing out of the sink holes all over town has toxic levels of carbon monoxide and the ground temperature was up two hundred eighty degrees in some locations. By nineteen eighty-three the government allocated forty two million two relocating residents to safer locations. Most people gladly moved away at this point but a few folks remained. The government fought them in a victim of many from their homes and by October of two thousand thirteen. Only ten people remained in the small town. They settled lawsuits against the government are permitted to remain in the town until they chose to leave. Or you know pass on. But that doesn't mean the environment any safer or less intriguing than it was when the addictions occurred as people from near and far learn the story of Centralia. They come to visit because why not most are pretty Ostra by what they see a grid work of streets without names or without homes remnants of property such as steps to a front door that are no longer there. A few abandoned buildings scattered here and there surrounded by smoldering hillsides in devastated wastelands three cemeteries remaining on the grounds of church. That was torn down years ago. Only a very few occupied homes still remain while no lives have been lost that can be directly attributed to the mine fire what has been lost as the sole of community with any strange or unusual occurrence comes rumors and stories. Centralia is no different in that respect. Walking around the ruins of this modern day. Ghost town gives one the feeling of supernatural forces working underfoot for visitors to the town. Stories arose from these ashes. Some were stories from visitors. Who Left in fear? After thinking they saw a person or thing heard odd sounds and some felt they were being watched others go as far as to say Centralia is the gateway to hell which I imagine is like on. Buffy where she lives in. I think the town is Sonny jail and I think that they call the center of it. The hell mouth but I honestly did not research this. So don't quote me on that but I've never seen the show. So Liz my nerd level. Try but really high up there. I mean it's true. Anyways as you can tell imaginations can run wild as in trail lia becomes a modern day ghost town in the fire encroaches upon the graveyard of the abandoned town. Rumors have circulated that Centralia is haunted. Now sort of recently. The Movie Silent Hill has actually field some rumors. I don't know if you've seen silent hill. Liz Time I you know. I've not seen not my bread and butter kind of movie you for those at home. Who are like me have not seen it. It is a movie by Sony Pictures. That is a story about a small town in West Virginia called Silent Hill. And you know. I know crazy. So when researching the different elements of Silent Hill the screenwriter Roger. Avery actually came across the town of Centralia Pennsylvania Cintra Lia actually planted the seed for what developed into the cinematic version of the town of Silent Hill. The movie invites the audience to explore. Their fears of the unknown yet. Silent Hill is a horror film and a work of fiction. So you know it's sort of based off Centralia but not directly like there's your aren't there like cannibals since silent hill or something. I really don't remember it's been born enough. I don't think game like a video game now is it. I don't know I think so. I had no idea just goes to show how much I don't know about Louis. Well same I stayed away from it when it came..

"All right. Give us the update here. Yeah. We I covered this case back in episodes, one forty six and one forty eight involving a state case captioned league of women voters versus Pennsylvania. And so this involves the Republican twenty eleven redistricting plan, which was challenged in the Pennsylvania supreme court under Pennsylvania's constitution. Thus circumventing the issues that we talked about in the last segment of you know, alternately putting a highly political issue before what is likely to be a partisan supreme court. And and so so let's talk about that a little bit Pennsylvania is a parody Matic example of packing and cracking. Right. We have a blue state that. It is a swing state and since twenty eleven there have been three congressional elections Pennsylvania has eighteen congressional districts. And so, you know, blue state slightly democratic maybe fifty to forty eight right? How do you think Pennsylvania's eighteen districts were have gone in the past three elections? Well, going with your math. I'm Jay, I'm I'm gonna just I've I'll say nine and nine because it's a swing state, and I'm guessing. Yeah. The representation will be roughly what the public is voting so nine and nine. Yeah. Yeah. Thirteen to five Republican and that other two five result. That thirteen to five result persisted from twenty twelve right, which was a pretty blue year. Right. That was the Barack Obama's reelection in which he carried Pennsylvania by nearly double digits in twenty fourteen despite the fact that the democratic share of the vote dropped off by six percent still thirteen to five Republican and then again in twenty sixteen when Donald Trump carried Pennsylvania still thirteen to five Republican. Well, I'm no math democratic sounds to me like something is wrong. Yeah. And and what's wrong is that the Republican plan tax all of the democratic voters into those five districts such that the Democrats have won those five districts by an average by an average vote share of overset. Seventy five percent and twenty twelve and twenty sixteenth. Yeah. So if you're thinking about, you know, how do you make sure that democratic votes are wasted? Yeah. You you put all the Democrats into these districts where Democrats are going to win no matter what? And you're just piling on huge margins thus enabling Republicans to win the remainder the rest of the state with under sixty percent of the vote. So this is the classic red map formula, and in and in fact, red map was used in Pennsylvania and so- league of women voters common cause a bunch of plaintiffs sued to invalidate they entire math. And interestingly again, as we as we flagged from the beginning of the second, they sued under article one section five of the Pennsylvania state constitution, which says elections shall be free. And equal. No power civil or military shell at anytime interfere to prevent the free exercise of the right of suffrage. So that sidesteps, right. We've talked about it is pending before the supreme court does partisan gerrymandering violate the due process and equal protection clauses of the US constitution, Pennsylvania has its own constitutional provision that are on. Sorry. Remember because there's there's so much bad Republican gerrymandering everywhere. This was that one weird trick that was the kind of positive news on how they were going to keep it at the state level. That was the state. That's exactly right and good and the state supreme court. Yeah. So not only did the state supreme court rule that this twenty eleven plan that partisan gerrymandering, violates that provision of the Pennsylvania state constitution. But ultimately after remand ING and trying to get the Republican legislature to redraw the map in a way that was fair and the Republican legislature making, you know, tiny little marginal changes, ultimately, the Pennsylvania state supreme court redrew, the district's themselves they hired an outside expert. I mean, they, you know, the judges didn't sit down and do it. But the court commissioned an independent expert to redraw the districts to make them more fair..

"If each date you know that govern game exactly and the actual process itself. So the two thousand and ten election was used not just in terms of the bringing the tea party to power, the ideological conservatism, that it represents go headlines. Yeah, just to piggyback on that. Just one thing that I think we saw with Pennsylvania's, you know, you know, one of the most agree GIS gerrymandered maps in the country. We see one party control, right? We see that the Republicans controlled the house, the Senate, the governor's office, and you know, they made the laws. They made the rules and there was no really check combined. Democrats would do. That's being nonpartisan ab- now you're not being partisan, but the Democrats have done that. So already pointed out, there's a district in Maryland. Yeah. So this is not partisan both parties. We'll do this. Well, that's exactly the point I wanted to go to because if regardless of party, if the party has the power, it seems very natural. In terms of American politics try to consolidate that power, but but you know, when Republicans do it and there have they have done here in Pennsylvania. Democrats have done it elsewhere. People keep talking to me about Maryland, California, back in the eighties and nineties. But the point is, is that is there a way to come up with a fair system that does mostly remove politics from the equation? And and here let me just let me just do some limit. Let me play for you a little bit of tape here. This is again Valentino degeorge. Oh, he's the GOP chairman of Pennsylvania, and he basically just takes. He takes issue with that entire question because he says it's perfectly fine. With legislators, creating districts, and he really opposes the idea of any other systems, specifically, an independent citizens commission, which we'll talk about here in a second. He poses other systems to draw future congressional maps, and here's what he said. So legislators are in the best position to draw lines and look the end of the day, heaven forbid, politics should enter into a piece of legislation that draws part, you know, political maps stunned over the country. Democrats join maps to their favors in other states, look Marilyn. So you know, this is nonsense. This was part of a Barack Obama, Eric Holder, fair districting plan. They called it to take back congressional seats and they've done it here in Pennsylvania. That's fell to Georgia, Pennsylvania GOP chair. So Lindsey, Lazar ski. He's he basically says, we know the state the best we should draw the maps. But there is this other idea about an independence, it isn't commission. What would that look like in Pennsylvania? I just have to say, I love that operatic music behind veils. And it was. It was a Columbus Day festival in Philadelphia. Taking me there to south Philly. So you know a group in Pennsylvania, fair district's PA for a number of years now they've been trying to. Change the Pennsylvania constitution and to implement an independent citizens commission that would actually draw the lines and they've modeled this after California, and this is really a grassroots organization. You see them at street fairs. You see them at avent's canvassing and you know they, they're asking the legislators to basically vote against their interests to form this commission. As you pointed out it, there is a such a commission in California made up of appointed independent citizens. And I think some several other couple other states in the west have similar similar commission. So do they work though? Have they created fairer districts if you talk to the people on the commission? Yes. If you talked to voters. Yes. I think a key difference between Pennsylvania and California is that in Pennsylvania, there's no referendum. So basically to get that process in place, the state legislature would have to. Pass a constitutional amendment, and then it would go to the voters in a referendum, and there's no guarantee. There's no guarantee that an independent commission itself would be truly independent. By somebody that that that's or hold positions by virtue get on get on the commission by virtue of a position they already hold or you could have state lawmaker leaders appoint a few. You could have different groups. Yeah, it it can get. It can get complicated, but here's what's fascinating until Baker versus car supreme court decision..

"From WB you are Boston NPR I'm Meghna Chuck Roberti and this is on point. We've got a special broadcast today from the studios of WHYY in Philadelphia, and we're in Pennsylvania because yes, the keystone state is key to American politics. It's a microcosm of the country as a whole populous with a mix of urban and rural voters. The electorate here is pretty evenly split between Republicans and Democrats. You'll remember that President Trump won Pennsylvania by less than forty. Five thousand votes out of the six million ballots cast here in two thousand sixteen, so it would make sense to expect that same even split in the state's congressional delegation, half democrat half Republican, but that is not the case. The GOP holds thirteen out of Pennsylvania's eighteen congressional seats in part because Pennsylvania had one of the most extremely gerrymandered congressional maps in the country will that change this year. The state supreme court struck down the old district map and. Suddenly more than a half dozen of Pennsylvania's congressional races are newly competitive, and that could mean major change in the midterm elections. So this hour on point Pennsylvania's adventures in redistricting and the impact it could have on American politics. Now we've been spending several days here in Pennsylvania, getting a sense of the districts old and new. So I wanna start today in the states old. Seventh district in a parking lot in king of Prussia, Pennsylvania. So this district was known as goofy, kicking Donald, a strange name, but that's what the extremely gerrymandered shape of the old. Seventh district looked like a Disney brawl. We're standing outside creeds, seafood and steaks squeezed between the Pennsylvania turnpike and county line expressway. And we're here with Kate. Doyle Montgomery County lead for fair districts, Pennsylvania, a nonpartisan group that's pushing for permanent change in the state's districting rules. This parking lot is little infamous when it comes to the previous seventh district, Pennsylvania, it is connecting point. It is approximately one hundred and seventy meters long or about five hundred fifty feet. The old seventh spread along contorted twists and turns for some fifty miles from the Pennsylvania suburbs to Amish country. But this pinch point you sane bolt could cross the seventh district in about sixteen seconds, correct? So it's it's really just as wide as a parking lot. I mean, why did they do that? It has to be contiguous. In other words, no matter how strange the shape the district has to be a single unit that has been a long standing rule in Pennsylvania, says, fair districts, rich Rafferty, who's also with us Rafferty and dole both emphasized that gerrymandering has been practiced beloved by both parties, but the huge difference. Now, the availability of voter records and vast amounts of consumer information. Rafferty says the combination of big data and sophisticated mapping technology allows district lines to zigzag from house to house making certain seats so safe. The opposition simply falls.
