Fresh update on "president obama" discussed on Michael Savage
"To places that I like their leaders very much. Very nice. Do they take advantage of the United States? But that so much anymore? So the media go off on this? How could you say Thailand is crazy? World well coverage of Trump saying Thailand Let's be real about this. That's funny. I mean, like, two days ago, you take tonight and think about Yosemite. So I want a travel show hosted by president from just watching the names of places. And I will acknowledge that President Obama had this weird habit where he would suddenly shift into the particular pronunciation of countries based on what he thought they should be So everything Pakistan and Pakistan Just randomly shoved into a pa keystone. But many, but Donald Trump violent. I mean, it sounds like a strip club, does it not? I'm the head over Death Island. I know what you still owe me over its island. If we unbelievable Three favorite countries Silent China, Djibouti. Some funny meritorious of all the while coverage. I think not. I think that other things that Trump said that received worldwide coverage. So Trump yesterday was ripping that Biden was pointing out that he has a fairly anti religious agenda. Which is true. I mean, this is a man who tried to prevent the little sisters of the poor from having to engage From not having to engage with Obama care's contraceptive coverage if you wanted nuns to favor contraceptive coverage. Biden Joe Biden wants All of his leftist social prescriptions to be enforced over religious institutions. The Trump in the main is not wrong here. But because Trump money speaks he and when he ribs, he says, kind of the most obvious and silly forms of things. He says that Biden wants to hurt God. Now there's not a religious person America who thinks that Biden is capable of hurting God. God, it turns out is all powerful, all knowing, and I'm the president. So They're a few things, but Is this like a major huge, earthshaking gaffe, of course not received well dwell coverage anyway. You.
Rajapaksa brothers win by landslide in Sri Lanka's election
"Have cemented their grip on Sri Lankans politics with an overwhelming victory in parliamentary elections there. Sri Lanka People's Front and allies would have a 2/3 majority in the new house, allowing President Obama Roger Puncture to name his elder brother Mahinda as prime minister as well as all the relatives to his cabinet. More from Ambala sanity, Rajan The scale of the victory for president. Gotta buy. Rajapaksa's party is not a surprise, but the opposition's total drought has been stunning. The former prime minister, Wickremesinghe lost his own constituency on his United National Party managed to win just one seat. It had more than 100 in the outgoing parliament. With the dominant majority, the fractures could attempt to change the constitution to increase the powers of the president. Activists, already alarmed by the diminishing space for dissent and criticism, fear such an eventuality could lead to greater authoritarianism. The Indian Health
Election 2020: Biden's VP Pick
"There's plenty of general reporting out there about each of the possible women who Joe Biden might pick to be his vice president. We're here now to understand the Jewish angle for each of these impressive women to learn what American Jews should know about each of these candidates that might make them more supportive or concerned. So we're going to go one by one and get the Jewish angle from our guest Jacob Corn Blue, the national politics reporter for Jewish insider. Jacob. Thank you for joining us to be back. Let's start with Comma Harris a former candidate for the Democratic nomination a popular senator from California the State with the second largest Jewish population in the country. What's the Jewish angle on Senator Harris? First of all, she married to a Zionist of that Iraqi gets her a Jewish scientist. Yes. So that gives an upper hand in this Jewish of IPE stakes I think that Kamala Harris gives a lot. She adds up to the ticket number one just because she was a popular candidate and people. So her at the start as a rising star and somebody who can really take this to the very end unfortunately it for ourselves she didn't win the primaries should take on. Joe. Biden pretty early which gave. That rise in the polls in the only of twenty twenty. I will say that Biden. Biden comes to see who is preferred choice for Veep Kamala Harris has a big name recognition. Is Obviously arised star and her background, a label as being a black woman from California. But was so high tides in the Senate and in the Jewish community. So the pros are out. The cons are that I'm not sure Biden Israeli looking for someone on the ticket would potentially overshadow him not because Harris Donald understand that if she's on the ticket, she's number two and she's there to serve the presidential nominee and possibly the president. But Because Camera Harris ran on the same slop because she is a bishop you know she can overshadow him in media appearances and potentially as vice president of being a little more independent and vocal than let's say, Dick Cheney and pence on camera beyond the you know the happy coincidence of the Jewish husband is there anything in particular that Jews should know about Senator Harris is policy stances? What has she? Done on issues Anti Semitism, what has she done on supporting Israel, other issues of concern to the Jewish community I guess close ties with APEC obviously. She's spoken at several APEC conferences but she also appealed to the mainstream of the Democratic Party She's not seen as a controversial figure amongst progressives say as someone who is too pro Israel for them she will reflect the same policies that Biden Obama and. Anybody, else running a Democratic Party other than on the an Warren's she would you know align herself with the second policy views? So I don't think she's outstanding. She's not too long in the Senate to look back at a record by think, she has a strong provisions record and she is aligned itself with the mainstream of the Democratic Party next, let's talk about political MIA fights, Susan, rice, Susan Rice served. As US ambassador to the UN in President Obama's first term and his national security adviser in his second going even further back in time actually I think I think she was the youngest ever assistant secretary of State She was you know thirty three or something like that when President Clinton in Nineteen Ninety eight made her the system secretary of State for Africa what did you need to know about Susan? Rice. Well Susan Rice first of all is A. Mixed emotions about Susan, Rice obviously, she has good ties with prominence numbers of the Jewish community and she has a record serving as national security adviser and embassador to the UN on their Obama Democrats SAPORTA. Mostly Obama's policy when it comes to how other than the last UN Security Council. Two, three, three, four, a resolution, and just mind our listeners about two three four why that was controversial. The only time when Obama. ABSTAINED ON APRIL then. All on settlements that you know really couldn't dent on Obama's record when it comes to a majority of American Jews talking about Republican Jews, all those. In Israel who soul Obama as being the more salt when it comes to the Palestinian issue. But Susan Rice obviously had a this overlap from being a national security adviser and the to the UN. Obviously, she was a controversial figure on this front. She was criticized by Dennis. Ross by the full hug combative style. When came to the Palestinian issue on the other hand, she has very strong ties with somebody like a Fox who is very vocal in his pro Israel stats
"We're bringing you a quick concentrated hit of all things black this week, we're playing six degrees of black separation in honor of President Obama's birthday.

Coal is now focusing on photo journalism in the streets documenting this store time of social unrest. Mouth. Thank you so much for joining us today. Really happy to have you. Happy to be here. Pandemic has halted work for a lot of creative people. Affect you as hip hop photographer. Oh, shoot affected me in ways where everything just completely stopped I work a lot with Trey Songz. Like. A few weeks after that roots picnic, every festival everything has just completely I had. No work and it was like now, what am I gonNA? Do to support my family and e s had to pivot and you moved into photo journalism which in this environment you know is a is a choice he talk about that decision to pick up the camera in a different way I've always done street photography. So it of came naturally get back out there and shoot industries and couple months. Later you know the protests started and George Floyd died and I had a call accident within myself after talking with another photographer by the name of dollars and he basically expired was already inside of me called me to excellent. I'll even saying the words the Time magazine cover his first one was. I crave I desire to win. You know either have a photo inside in Time magazine talks about the moment that you decided that you needed to be out there on the frontlines documenting this movement. There is no way for me to do it except for being the friends I feel like I to give. To give it to the world and use platforms to show people what's going on in expect my photos have the impact that they did took the first photo. There we went viral and got close twenty, five, thousand likes and. Comments and it was really unexpected for me and that really. Kept me motivated I mean I know you've probably been out there capturing kind of some of the viruses curb have been subject to it absolutely within the first week. Got Attacked by the COPS. Beat tons of for life maybe twenty seconds or so and they realized that. I wasn't. A threat. Just, protesting counter protests for people that were protecting. Columbus Christopher. Columbus statue in. South. Philly within moments of getting their man punched me in the face. Right over the back. Before he punched me looked me in the I. Get outta here and boy I mean I see the violence I've become a this I never thought becomes a part of it. You know. It's all
Cybersecurity and the SMB
"But yet, you guys are geared towards helping small businesses from policy in ready perspective on cyber right. Absolutely. So I can tell you what we do I. Just WanNa make a comment on your diversity common because I'll. I'll make a a plug for diversity across genders races. The capabilities and skills are out there, but you have to work to find them So it's just a question. If you really believe in diversity than you have to build it from the ground up get people into the position to acquire the skills, and there's plenty of there's a diverse skill that's out there but you have to look forward. and. Not just be complacent and go to the usual suspects. So that's that's my plug on diversity it it. They are particularly in this space and it's important to for US particularly cybersecurity, which is about building things and creating solutions to actually get divers, thoughts and ideas in. Well, if I made injected diversity of opinion is so important because we. I I've been in the industry. You know roughly twenty some odd years and I feel like while we continue to innovate actually like the solving things is is the difficult part right and so every couple years ago we need a fresh perspective and what we have disabled people like this is not how it is going to happen. Yeah exactly. Exactly and so the the Cyber Readiness Institute in Two Thousand Sixteen I served as executive director of President Obama's independent bipartisan commission on Enhancing National Cyber Security, and it was a nine month commission as. We're finishing up the commission and the Vice Chair of the Commission Sam Palmisano, who's the retired CEO of IBM in I came together to talk through how do you carry this momentum forward so the CO chairs were all involved co chairs of CRI were all involved in the commission of Penny. pritzker served as US Secretary of Commerce at the time and she was oversight and then Microsoft participated on the commission Ivanka the CEO of MasterCard was a commissioner and the idea was to your earlier point that by convening senior executives to come together. And say small business cybersecurity is important. You create momentum for this purpose because small businesses themselves don't have the voice and don't have the resources for this and so if you take and convene large companies and ask them to share their best practices and resources to create free tools for small businesses, then you're truly helping businesses and you're also improving the security of global value chains. The point that Ajay Banga the CEO of MasterCard with all the time is you know we're only as strong as our weakest link and particularly for a company. Like MasterCard helping small businesses make sense but it's true of all companies are members include Exxon, Mobil, General Motors, city, those companies, all recognize the importance of cybersecurity for small businesses will, and I think it's interesting as cyber security We'll save matures and it's it's time as thing One of the things that I think we we keep coming back to insert recognizing pretty readily and it's happened a few times over the years where your smallest vendor, your most insignificant from but number of dollars you pay them vendor or partner. Tends to be one of your weakest. Of A cybersecurity perspective right. So if you think about the overuse example although I haven't heard it in a while of the h back company that you know. Is your is your H, back to provide a provider of choice for the six hundred, seventy, four locations you have right or or even or even the one like you've got a shop or something of live in an area that's got a lot of these small companies that are the warehousing and electrical companies and right. These are not like global companies but they've got somebody that maintains their grounds. They got somebody that does their payroll. They've got somebody that maintains the electrical and all that and I sort of wonder How much of the companies that? These companies rely on actually do. In terms of cybersecurity sometimes, they have such A. Wealth and abundance was an embarrassment of riches as the attorney in terms of how much data they have a about some of the world's largest companies. Blows my mind that they spent like. Maybe sometimes nothing on cybersecurity will holy cow possible. Well exactly and I think one of the things that you are calling attention to, which is so critical as that supply chains are not linear. There are parts of your supply chain that people don't think about it's the catering company. It's the HVAC company and there was a story in the. New York Times by Nicole for over a couple of years ago about an oil company in Texas that was firewalls, six ways to Sunday. But they were breached because the militia actors were paying attention to the it department and saw that at six o'clock at night typically, they would download the menu from the Chinese restaurant around the corner and. To in order to order, and so they put them out where on the Chinese restaurant. because. They see a lot easier to breach
A Look at Police Body Cam Technologies, and Where They Fall Short
"The nationwide protests over the killing of George, Floyd brought many things alight from racial inequality to police brutality. One issue that's come back to the forefront is whether or not police body cams are effective tools to hold officers accountable. I'm Roger Jiang. This is your daily charge with me senior video producer Butch Kerry who was a video out today discussing this various you welcome bridget. Thanks for having me. So body cameras really spiked popularity with the police back between fourteen talk about what really sparked this move answer where we are today yeah. It really began with Michael Brown because when he was shot by a white police officer in two thousand fourteen, there was no video footage to show it happened in the officer didn't face charges. So the family came out and Please request thought you know there's a movement that police can wear body cameras that was pushed even further by President Obama also saying that this should be the change for the future. Then there were federal grant setup to help departments pay for them. So you did have this big increase in police departments trying to help their relationship with the community and saying, Hey, we're going to have body cameras now but I mean that was present fourteen and I feel like we're still at the same place which. Is why I wanted to do this report and look into how do they work and why are we still at the same place and it really comes down to how different departments are using the cameras zero zillion talk a little bit about that and just to give our listeners a sense of how broadly there used. I, know you mentioned those grants to the Justice Department awarded place apartments in thirty states more than twenty three, million dollars for body Cam. So how many police officers actually use them? That the data right now, when you look at the statistics, it's looking like about half of our nation right now has officer some way or another obviously is hard to be exactly of small apartments, large departments but right now the idea looks like about half the country has law enforcement wearing some kind of camera or has tested out cameras some. In some way I, mean issues basic the you have officers wear cameras people will change their behavior when they know they're being recorded right there's more trust now when they're when there's a cameras more accountability these really lofty goals for one piece attack at there have been a few snags along the way. Of them being cost of storage because you have all these officers recording when they come into a situation every day. So figure, every officer has maybe three or four hours of recording everyday they have to store in the cloud. Well, how long are they storing that and how much is needing to be saved It's all different depending on every single up police department. So sometimes, it's months sometimes years and you're looking at costs in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. One department only had five police officers in the little town of Nebraska, and they were looking at something around fifteen grand. A year and this is like not folk is not feasible for every department to pay this because those those grants we talked about they don't cover ongoing storage costs. So some departments have been pulled out of using them because they don't see it's it's useful for them to be paying for it because the storage storage is definitely issued cost is an issue. These unforeseen costs are a real. Red Flag but bring it back to you know the ultimate idea that these cameras were supposed to bring accountability and to prove relations with the community was twenty and we're still protesting about police brutality Take things are worse than they ever are they have been. So what happened how did they fail to accomplish that goal? I wouldn't call them an outright failure, but it certainly is a failure in A. Couple of aspects one It goes back to how these tools are being used for one A officers have the ability for the most part right now to start and stop the recording on their own because they they really feel like you should have that kind of freedom. Do you really want a camera to be always turned on in every instance? No not when you're visiting someone at the hospital Having a private conversation or just you know having your lunch that said, what are the punishments if you don't hit that record button when you were supposed to or finding that there isn't a lot of incentive to do the right thing or I should say you know punishment if you miss a recording when you're supposed to at least that's what a lot of the researchers I talked to were saying that. If if you don't activate your camera, you know what's the consequence for that That's that's one area that's missing. Other area that that's missing is how can the public get access to this footage to be accountable? You countless studies have been done, and most recently they looked at all the studies and said, all right. What's the data we're seeing that there are fewer complaints against police officers. That's a good thing. We're seeing that police officers have footage to say, Hey, look I was justified that this was a false complaint against me. Great cameras are showing the truth in different aspects but a cameras show every angle of the story that happened and the cameras only as good as being able to release the footage. So some researchers I talked to said. We WanNA. See more data on can the public access when they want to receive some change now in New York City the mayor said that anytime now there is an incident where someone killed or seriously injured they will release footage but for a while there was this law that said, they don't have to release anything. We'll as a camera that you know. So so that's really the problem. I it comes down to not having a uniformed a set of rules or standards on win. This footage can be released in how it can be used. To the point of consistency, you mentioned New York City Mayor de Blasio a changes law he's fairly alone. He's he's sort of serve an isolated case right? Because the the rules are very greatly I don't think there's any kind of national mandate to be more transparent about when they released this footage ride, we're starting to see changes win the public points, their camera at a situation and out that officers didn't have their cameras turned on over in. Louisville when there was a shooting at the restaurant owner those officers who did not activate. Their cameras were put on leave a might my questions are okay they're put on leave but they're suspended. Where are you know the the more serious deterrence there? You know what's happening people are losing their jobs over it out win when government realized that the spotlight's on them you know but we have to look at what's going on in terms of using them. There is some technology though that is kind of starting to change that part of it like having a camera automatically turn on when it senses something's happening it could be win a Taser guns pulled out of a holster. It could be also not so serious like when it detects a police vehicle going at a certain speed or detects other kind of check marks author software so that Way If an officer is in the heat of the moment and can't remember to turn on their camera. It does it for them There's also talk about live streaming. So some of the cameras are able to have a superior back at home base tap into what that officer is seen in real time. That is a great advantage. When something serious is going down, they get a real time feedback. But. It's something that they're also can be push back with with police unions going wait a second I don't want someone seeing what I'm doing all times I don't live streaming only a few departments really have started to use livestream I. Think Cincinnati was one of the first that used the teaser brand of version of livestream on their cameras, and that was just February so very early for that technology but there's a lot of talk about that.

Obama urges Americans to honor John Lewis' legacy by voting
"For the funeral of Congressman John Lewis rose to its feet with an up roar of applause during a eulogy from former President Barack Obama. Mr Obama talked about the selfless sacrifice of the civil rights leader and that the voting rights he fought for our under siege by President Trump, who's floating the idea of delaying the election. Joining us live to talk about CBS analyst Leonard Steinhorn. Great to have you, Leonard? Happy to be here so to other presidents were on hand. But it was poor former President Obama, who offered this impassioned defense of democratic ideals that he says are being threatened. He's been more outspoken, but not like this. Can you talk about it? Look essentially what President Obama was saying is, if we wanna honor John Lewis's legacy, truly honor it. We need to finish the work of John Lewis's lifetime. Which is to ensure voting rights, for all with no obstacles in anyone's way and in effect. What he did with his rhetoric is he entered the political fray not directly not through partisan attacks, but with clear and pointed assaults on those Particularly Republicans, who were doing exactly what John Lewis fought against all of his life, which is to undermine the voting rights of the American people, So he did it through lofty and impassioned rhetoric. But his message was clear. He was definitely part former president and part preacher today, talking about the protests as well, something that Louis energized in his day is a civil rights leader, nearly losing his life in the fight. Can you characterize what Mr Obama said, and its relevance at this moment in history? So, in essence, what President Obama did was draw a straight line from Bloody Sunday on the Edmund Pettus Bridge from Bull Connor in Birmingham. ER, George Wallace. The black lives matter. And the civil rights struggles of today are voting rights struggles of today. So you know, he basically said Bull Connor may be gone, But today we witness with our own eyes, police officers. Kneeling on the next of black Americans. George Wallace may be gone. But then, he said he worries about the federal government's sending agents to use tear gas and batons against peaceful demonstrators. Clearly referencing what happened in Lafayette Square when President Trump wanted to go to the church and hold up his Bible. So he drew a straight line from John Lewis in the 19 sixties tow what's happening today, and clearly, that was a strong message that this next generation now has to take the torch. And continue on with the fight that John Lewis began when he was just Ah, young, a young man in 1960 CBS News political analyst Leonard Steinhorn Thanks so much for being here. Thanks Always. By the

"That he has never once broach the issue of Russia, placing bounties on the heads of American troops in Afghanistan with his counterpart Vladimir Putin. Then just hours later, he announces the complete withdrawal of U. S forces from Germany. And Hodges is a retired lieutenant general in the U. S Army and former commanding general for United States Army Europe based in Germany. Currently he is an analyst and scholar at the centre for European Policy Analysis. General. Thank you for joining us. Thanks for the privilege. So let's start with the last thing first. Which was the announcement from the White House about us troops out of Germany. Did that shock you? Well, it was a surprise when I heard it two months ago when it came out in a Wall Street Journal report that about 10,000 we're going to come out on days. Of course, it was also a shock to all of the U. S headquarters in Europe at the time, as well as our allies. On today. Of course, the number that we heard was closer to 12 hours. So they're apparently going to moves to other regions. What is the basis for having troops in these numbers in Germany in the first place? Once the original idea, and then how are the other countries there now reacting to this Well, keep in mind that the total number of Americans that are based in Germany's 34,000 That's about 12,000 Air Force in 22,000 army so That's probably about 1/3 of what could be seated in the Coliseum there in Los Angeles or some other major university stadium. It's not a lot of people, the primary function that they perform. Ah, commanding control, logistics, intelligence communications. Things that help the United States carry out our national security strategy in our defensive strategy in Europe, Africa in the Middle East, so anything, they're not. They're providing protection for Germany at all. They're there to give us Forward, basing that makes it easier for us to carry out our strategy. But am I correct general that the Russians were never exactly to put it mildly pleased that these air troops were in Germany and would be not at all disappointed that they're leaving. Well, no, This is just to the Kremlin because they've done nothing to change their behavior in a positive way. They still occupy Crimea illegally. They still are killing Ukrainian soldiers and done passed done Mass every week. Still occupied 20% of Georgia. They still support the Assad regime, which has generated millions of refugees and killed hundreds of thousands of their own people and their supporting general Haftar in Libya, which is going to generate another 1,000,000 refugees. Into Europe, so they've done nothing to change their behavior. And yet we reduce our capability and Germany by about 1/3 so to me that that again now We've had US troops in Germany since the end of World War two on some people have said. Well, why are they still there? The Cold War's over and I would say well because of US leadership and because of NATO. We've had no war in Europe for 71 years. I mean, that's actually since 1945. Don't do math in public 75 years. That's an incredible accomplishment. When you think of the history of Europe so Well, with the exception of the break up in Yugoslavia, all the nations of Europe that have found each other for centuries. Now, basically all of the same team in NATO What a huge benefit to the United States that are most important trading partner partner. The European Union is stable and secure, so this is for our benefit. Move on to the other part of this discussion. The time we have left the president not confronting Vladimir Putin about the bounties in the most recent phone call, they have, and then reportedly also other phone calls that they've had Knowing that everyone would be watching for this that people wanted something to be said. Yeah, I don't understand. Um, while the president is not more forceful and clear, because actually the acts of the department offense up until this terrible announcement today of the action Of this administration have actually increased in Europe. We have more troops in Germany today than we did under President Obama and everything that President Obama promised. Has been carried out by this administration. So there's a disconnect between what Is happening on the ground in Europe and in what the president says to be candid. I can't explain that when it comes to the reports of bounces, own troops head in Afghanistan. I was there for 15 months back in 2009 and 2010. As a brigadier general, I always assumed that the Russians wanted to see us fail to see us bleed because of our support for the mujahideen with the Soviet Union was in Afghanistan. But, um Wouldn't when the domain of Thailand from Pakistan into Afghanistan was cut off. The Russian's still allowed us to move supplies What we call the northern Supply line moving supply around. We were still able to move through Russia to get stuff in and out so they could have really hurt us if they want to. I suspect that this business about the bounty is probably at some local level some overeager person. I never thought the Taliban needed any motivation to kill Americans. The president could make this go away if he was much more clear about how he opposes the criminals. Technologists.

Well I'll tell you. Thank you saw the attorney general in Minnesota Kief Alex caution. Now have to pray on the jury. Is that where we got to focus on that? We get my opinion. Heads will roll on this one because it has created such a stir outside of the African American community. When the senator of that state gets involved. With the mayor of that city gets involved When. People around the nation outside of our race. Get involved. Heads will roll because now you have to explain it under peer pressure, because now as you go to your country clubs, and you go to your social gatherings, and you go to your churches, and you go to your houses. See people come to your house in protest. See what happened to this cop. People came to his house to protest. See Never before. Does the protest get to come to their neighborhood?

Some day what you pushed me. They pushed a protested protesters. Look, did you see it pushed me? And as You know how. Long we've been saying Yeah Yeah Yeah? We don't we don't even get to Rub Publi. Right and. WE'RE PROTESTING Right and I do very much appreciate. The number of nine African Americans who have decided to stay with us. Appreciate it very much as well the part the people that I'm missing. And I'm going to release a letter next week. I'm trying to find the right way to put it. But I WANNA. Write an open letter to the Southern Baptist Convention. The largest white evangelical or In the world. I'm surprised. That when we have these moments like this that I never hear from. This religious organisation. This group of Christians well. Steve the KU. Klux Klan a used to burn crosses, and that's the Christian symbol across you know what I mean. Yeah, so. It doesn't surprise me. It doesn't mean you would think as Christians because that's what we're taught to love. One another and all of that you know to follow. Jesus follow Christ and everything, but it hasn't been the case. You're absolutely right. They've been conspicuously silent. I'm absolutely an I'm not angry. Because I don't really. Expect anybody. But. Since. We have this. Such for the first time an outcry outside of the African. American community is becoming even more alarming. For the ones who don't. And I'm just wondering what that organization says about. This and I've been trying to do some research. They're mostly conservative of values, which I'm okay with conservative values but does. Those conservative values include people of Color. Is what I WANNA know. Churches on. Sunday, yeah, I just want to know is that is a southern baptist, convention is that inclusive of blacks are? They welcomed their I'm not talking about wouldn't be yeah. I WANNA learn more about that. You know what I would love to interview. One of the top representatives from that organization. To, find out more about what they stand for and represent because they gotta be a great Christian. Organization and they have to be open to all people, and they have to be considered of the teachings of Jesus Christ, so I would really like to know. Why is it that we always just see black ministers? Confused, what's your? Is Valid. What you're asking is valid. Valley. And we need everybody. TB An asset. That will be neat. I, mean you ask it? If not now when Steve of not now win, but a lot of those churches are very segregated on Sundays if you just. Pay Attention. They are unfortunately. That's the way it is. I mean you know it's. It's a lot of black churches. Deaths segregated to for the way they worship. I don't have a problem with that. I have a problem with when you see injustice, and you see something morally wrong. That goes against the teachings of. Christ, why there a banding together all just Christie's. You can go to whatever church you because I like drones and stuff so I wanna go to church where the jam. I like that that's how I grew up so i. don't WanNa. Go in saying to him book that Ain't like that that's kind of. US You know, but as cool is not role with. I need a drummer. Group in giving it to me. Does that's how field I like that type of worship? And I'm okay with people who don't I just WanNa know morally wrong things. There's a time for all of the different ways of worship to come together to collectively address the things that are against the teachings of Jesus. And you don't do that. What are you saying that I wanNA talk to somebody to help us understand why they get very quiet, a moment and like this.

Take a listen now I want to speak directly to the young men and women of color in this country. Who as planned to so eloquently described had witnessed too much violence and too much debt, and too often. Some of that violence has come. From folks who were supposed to be serving and protect you.

I enjoy without having to worry about what's going to happen when you walk to the store or go for a jogger. Are driving down the street. Or looking at some burks apart and so I hope that you also feel help. Even as you may feel angry, because you have the power to make things better, and you have helped to make the entire country feel as if this is something that's got to change. You've communicated sense of urgency that is as powerful. Born of as anything that I've seen. In recent years. Wow. See Ladies and gentlemen. See. If you're in. A leadership capacity and you don't have that type of sensibility right there. Then you're lacking in a major quality that would make you inadequate or or or meaningful leader, and that's what's missing in this country because I've noticed president, trump. He used to give a news conference every day on when when the it was running Santa Claus. But then what happened was as he saw, he couldn't beat this invisible enemy, and that death toll kept climbing up behind him, and under him, he got off TV. Hey, mentioned Kovic Sis. So what he had to do was he had to find a visible enemy, and again it was uh us just like it was Colin Cabinet and his visible enemy became us, and so now guess what he has not opened his mouth to say anything about social injustice. Equal rights unfair treatment. He made that call to the Floyd family, but that's caused. They told him that was it. He hasn't spoken to the protesters to give them hope clarity. And then he waited on the right time to come up with another enemy and guess what it is. The protest is dead, burning and looting, and now he wants to call himself the law and order president. That's what he attacked US hisself to is the negativity versus what we just heard from a person who understands real leadership, because he undestood real service bright if you never been a great service. You can never be a great leader that's. True. But, what about the people on Social Media? This guy tweeted look at President Obama now you just showing off with all this subject and verb agreement set. A. Precedent or Really Miss You. All right. Let's move on time for today's headlines.

Show WTN's now charged with second degree murder, which carries up to forty years in prison and the other three officers. They also fired, but they are on the scene that day they're accused of aiding and abetting murder so actually.

"Absence makes the heart grow fonder in every way and I think that when when you former presidents don't weigh in and when Bush just you know does his paintings and you know watch baseball and does all of those things. That are non-threatening His approval ratings. Go up so they're not. They do not way in ever. I think we see except for Carter and I think we see Obama weighing in because feels really pushed back into a corner. I don't think that we would see this with any other if it was anyone else. But trump is off but a minute here. Tremaine you know. Bush is the only other Republican in the president's Club You know Bush said he did not recognize his own Republican Party. Do you think that Bush is concerned with trump as a republican is reflective of the party? Or is he an anomaly? I think in some ways he may be an anomaly. Because we just haven't heard other folks stepping up But the departure from the past and has been so great whether it's Bush or an Obama who sees the direction we're going in as so dire that something needs to happen. Speaking of w Bush we think about How President Obama ran against the war in Iraq? Right a lot of people see George W Bush as a war criminal. Quite frankly but still after you know. Obama was out of office. They forged his friendship and now he's the cute pictures of w Bush and the Bush family with Michelle Obama and everything is so cozy And so for him to step up now and kind of hint at his disapproval. It you imagine that it may be a spark for others to follow others to step up and say something but now we're three and a half almost four years in and still there's no way no human cry so interesting we're talking with Tremaine Leah correspondent for MSNBC and host of the into America.

Trump's relationship with the remaining living presidents with Kate Anderson brower author of team of five the president's Club in the age of trump and tra mainly course correspondent for MSNBC and host of the into America. Podcast Tremaine. What does this all say to you about the state of politics in two thousand twenty? You know we're we're at this place now and I think it's it's unclear whether we'll ever be able to go back. Whatever back means right to the good old days of politics when it was you know adversarial But there was decency and Decorum. I think this administration has intentionally sought to kind of undermine the previous in such a way That I think it says something really bad about where we are as American because again it trickles down to those voters and the people and even though for many. It's a horse race. It's about ego. There are real policy implications when you go down to the ground you know when I talked to voters all across the country. Black voters especially They see clearly how divergent and dangerous They feel this administration has been in trying to undermine every step of the previous administration. The president wrote President Obama's legacy but trump the trump though you funny that you say that because trump thinks that these former presidents are the ones that have been undermining him since they of course because he has to be aggrieved. He has to have an adversary. He has to have an enemy. He has to have someone to lash out against and for many people you know. He does represent something to a lot of people that make America great again and a lot of people have been questioning. Great Win. Give me a year. Give me a decade. Tell me exactly how we'RE GONNA restore America to greatness for those most vulnerable and marginalized communities. Who are now feeling the wrath the brunt of this incendiary language the disrespect but also attacking policies. That helped a lot of people the affordable care. Act You think about what Jeff sessions did on his way. Out of office kind of undermining. The consent decree process which held police departments across the country accountable. After the Trayvon Martin's and Michael Brown's and all the fergusons of the world right and so while he may see that because he is aggrieved and he has this beef he has this few burning coal inside of him Which represents President Obama for many people? This is dangerous and you know the question remains. Will we ever be able to come back out this as political form or actual policy? Now let's talk a little bit about trump's relationship with the other remaining presidents Besides Jimmy Carter Kate. President trump hasn't reached out to any of the other presidents for advice. How unusual is that? Oh it's Unprecedented in modern history. Always you know going back to JFK during the Cuban missile crisis calling every single one of his living predecessors saying we need help. I need advice During this would be a great time and for trump to to to reach out to them but And he's been asked about it and he said he wanted and he you know what will he learn from them? I think he's threatened by them When I left the Oval Office after our interview he said in a voice laden with dark chasm he said they hide President Bush for me. You know he I think he feels like he's been bullied by you. Know and and ostracized by the former presidents. And why would he? Why would he reach out to them? I mean Jimmy Carter. Is Somebody who he had. He's an affinity for he saw harder as an outsider and the way that he was because harder would come out and Criticize like I said Bush in the war in Iraq. I mean he broke some rules. We're not and president. Carter talk about. They talked about China. They talked about North Korea. Carter was still harboring hopes of being sent As an envoy I mean this is a couple of years ago to North Korea But it was typical Jimmy Carter because he was at a friend's house in plains Georgia in this tiny town and he was serving himself dinner at buffet.

Appearance really helped me overcome this two words over the course my life interesting so this this kind of came from internally that the these words wasn't coming from your parents no it was all internal just my own self doubt fear. You know all the all that stuff. So what did you think you were destined to do? I wasn't sure I figured it would be in the arts. Whether it be music or art itself you know I was definitely Into music growing up But I wasn't really sure I was Kinda game. Whatever so while you're from Nashville. So I hope you were handed music. Yeah actually grew up Singing professionally and a little kids group we saying on a Willie Nelson Record and John Denver. And all these famous artists sell is a professionally. Trained vocalists is a child which which is pretty crazy. Wow so wait. So how the heck go from a vocalist to you. Know a world famous photographer. I don't take taking. What was the turning point? You know you realize hey? I'm not going to be a vocalist. I think I'll take some pictures. Yeah we are we are Jimmy around him. And there's obviously a lot a lot in the between those moments and of course all in the book but I had abandoned college with my brothers and when I could tell that they weren't serious about it as I was I decided to turn my attention towards the arts visual arts In so I studied graphic design in college got monitoring illustration and at that point knew that a visual arts is what I wanted to do. So graphic design is actually what I did the longtime before switching to photography because actually one photography class in college and I got a d. and nearly failed and so it wasn't until many years later that I rediscovered photography and fell in love with it. So yeah to get to help me with that you almost. You almost failed photography and sounds like you're quite a good graphic artist. What what was the turning point that you say you know? I'm so bad photography I think I ought to take it up as a career. Yeah well It was photography is one of those required classes in college. I didn't actually want to take it but I had to and I didn't do very well. And so that was noni eight hundred nine and then it wasn't until two thousand one that the first digital camera came about and at that point I already knew the the All the the world of digital editing and new photoshop because as a graphic designer I knew all the digital tools so once a digital camera came into play. The made a lot of love a lot of sense for me to start playing with and so I would actually use a camera to scan in images and textures to use in my design and then living in Nashville all. My friends were musicians and so once they found at a camera then they would ask me to start shooting them and then I turned out to be good at it and then their labels would start hiring in the rest kind of took off from there. I was discovered by agent Hollywood. And then she put me on a roster and the next thing I knew I was shooting Big Celebrities in Hollywood and around the country. That's fascinating we. That was actually what my question is going to be. Because my guess was that you were going to take pictures to work in graphic arts and one thing led to another so I I should have said that I because then I'd look really smart but oh yeah that's that's fascinating were there. Were there people along the way who when this started happening guided you in this direction? Whether we're there are people who really made a difference in your life Going this direction. Yeah of course I mean obviously my. My parents had a massive impact. I talk a lot about that in the book but the NFL guy who is kind of a man not even mentor. He was the hero somebody idolize and looked up looked up and I get to meet him at one point and we became friends and he's the one that said you should buy this new thing called a digital camera which that changed my life and he was also the one to say you should quit. You're adding see job and start your own company. And he told me that at the age of twenty four. I'm now forty two and I've worked for myself ever since that day. He said You should quit your job tomorrow and I did quit my job tomorrow and again. That was eighteen years ago and I've never never looked back. What what I mean is quitting your job at twenty four and doing something and the you almost flunked out of college. I mean take take. Our listeners viewers what what goes through your mind. Well how do you do that because a lot of folks are in that position? How the heck do you do that? Yeah I think often times you know when where most afraid to do something that might mean. Were most meant to do that thing. You know you hear a lot of actors in Hollywood. Say They choose to do this film because they were terrified of it And I'm often drawn to the things that I'm really scared of drawn to jumping into that dark place a dark place of fear and just kind of not knowing what's going to happen but Being excited and and I I liked the idea of risk like the even as a kid. I loved walking into one hundred house and back in the eighties. They were actually really scary. People could actually grab you and you know These these days there'd be lawsuits involved. I remember in the eighties. I just loved like walk into these hundred houses Gazebo as a businessman. Now that's what it feels like. When you're starting something new in your world people are starting a new way of eating new lifestyle like it. All can be very very daunting and scary to try something new. But I've found over and over again that I'm just really drawn to that moment to that feeling and You know the worst that can happen as you can fail. And I found that even through failure. You're still learning. L. Ton and so it's really not failure. So have you know you you credit? Your parents like you mentioned with a lot of this. Where are they? The sounds like they're the real backbones that are are there to give you the confidence to leap out into the into the void. Yeah Picture and how what did they think when you quit your job at twenty four They were you know worried for the obvious reasons. You know worried about may sure that's get addicts. I had you know health benefits and all the things insurance all they get stuff but I was you know I was pretty pretty hard. Headed in new are needed to do it now. It was kind of drowning in the corporate world. I it didn't inspire me and MOTIVA- man. I knew that I enjoyed working with my friends a lot more so I knew that it was time to jump. You know we. We've We we've had other people on the podcast that tell a similar story that the corporate world they were drowning or strangling and they you know they made similar leaps and it's fascinating know where. Where do you get? Where do you get the courage to do this and you? It sounds like you're kind of born just to take leaps scary things. Maybe it's definitely Stephanie. Still scary like right now. I'm sure we'll get there in a minute. But I'm pursuing a new career new journey that is more terrifying than anything I've ever done and it's not like you overcome fear it's not like I. I finally defeated fear because fear is still there every single day fear and insecurities but I just know that those things are part of the journey. He no they're nine. Am tomorrow going to get back to work. They're all going to be there again But it's as being professional then knowing knowing you're still gonNA be battling those invoices so they're your career as a photographer where there were. They're fearful when you we're going to take a picture of star who was intimidating or President Obama or the Pope How how do you get ready to photograph somebody like that? Yeah it's It's wild for sure. I've had some wild encounters than I do get star struck at do get nervous but also have to remember that they're just another human being like myself and they also have their fears and insecurities and I just have to treat them like your which read anybody you know. I think that's the most important thing is treat the janitor in my building the same Zoa tree now President Obama whoever I was photographing at the time and I'm very laid back Mike countenance renown. This interview is the same as it is on a big photo. Shoot you now so Taking pictures is not Changing lives it's saving lives. It's it should be fun. A lot of people take away too seriously semi approaches atop some fun. Let's make some call them and see what happens so your so I take it. You're not kind of like Austin powers with his camera. Going work at work at you know some them. I kind of have to play that role for sure. I've done. Some fashion shoots and the client wants me to be a lot more talkative and encourage the model more so I've had to. I've had to find my inner Austin powers a few times it turns out we're going to take a quick break. We're GONNA come right back. I want to hear about what happens next share. Okay all right okay..

Your heart starts increasing speed. And you just WanNa go grab it and see see what's going on. So tech is owning us in a big way and I agree in part with what former President Obama says in that having big disruptive information technologies really at our hands at all times it can be Jane Dangerous. People don't know what's true. What's not what to to believe? And I hear all the time people are saying here saw this I saw that it's creating its is bat. Social Media and stuff now is almost as bad as TV. So there's there's there's different realities now it got a little political and I don't WanNa get political and everyone has their news organization of choice and it's usually along party lines and all all that stuff but let's take a break from tack on Thanksgiving Day at least try to take a break and see what happens because because I think were were so addicted. It's like crack. You know our iphones or androids. Today are just like doc crack with got have it right gotta have it in an if I if I okay. I've left here left my phone here wind to the House and I'm tripping because I'm thinking what am I missing and I forced myself not to come back into town to get the phone. I left it here Henry Computer and really hit everything I need but something about that crutch having that phone is an issue so I think that all this tack and all this being connected all the time as much as we all love. It hat can have big applic- big implications for our younger generations. I've said this many times on the show. I had my way to do this over again. I had my way to do it over again. I wouldn't let my kids have smartphones eighteen eighteen years old. I didn't do that but if I had to do it over again. That's what I would do If you've got young kids kids we have to. We have to take back control we really really do. And we have to make sure they were feeding our brain with put content. We are getting off these devices with stopped. Its help before us I was talking to some of my co workers. Yes so my team members about this Idea disconnecting from news. And he thought I was crazy and then these are twenty to thirty year olds and I said I just stop. I can't I can't handle it. I said what has listened to a year ago is the same thing it's on TV now. How it doesn't change because I sneak a peek from time to time? But I'm tried completely disconnect myself as much as I can and I'm telling the let's I take a break from it. You'll feel better and they. They are frustrated because they don't know what to do they don't know how to react. They don't know how to respond in some suburbs. Out of our control troll and I think that the phones these devices gives us a ball sensible longing sometimes where involved and I thought that the experiment instagram seagrams is doing about taking way likes that Will Destroy Their Service instagram folks. They don't do pitch. They do the pictures I for the attention and for the likes we all do right. We all how many likes they get honey comments. I get in his driving a really bad expectation. So I I. I don't think instagram will have the guts to turn off likes globally. Just don't if they do I will applaud them and beat the but I'll be shocked. I let's move on know about we work well. We work spitting is being hit with layoffs. They're out of money. We work as leading twenty four hundred employees go. Layoffs at the company of been rumored for months the layoffs only layoffs are only latest moment in the a basically a crash. We work at which point was valued at fifty billion dollars and its Bene- symbol of corporate mismanagement facing questions about its leadership and business plan. We were post planned an initial eight. IPO and What a mess? In October Softbank announced it would buy eighty percent of the struggling company and attempt to ship. But it's getting rid of vis viz much stop as they can but anticipating layoffs. We work employs announcer tension unionized. This month You think it's too late. I don't think union is is GONNA help company that's been mismanages when you're out of money you're out of money so we feel bad for him they were they were they had a great thing going. It's just amazing. It really really is in an article run the BBC the Apple Apple is saying they're losing money on phone repairs the answered questions from US politicians investigating anti competitive practices and Apple said it had lost money Liane repair services since two thousand nine and of course apple typically charges more than an unofficial repair shop does but we've seen that ourselves but the company also said customers afraid of team repairs from any repair shop of their choice but they sure doesn't they basically give you warnings warnings. Now you haven't you different batteries in detects third-party repairs ears in a it's crazy so in September apple sent a list of questions by US House Judiciary Committee which is investigating competition in digital markets and response to questions about how much a company earns repair services again. They said they have not. They've lost money every year. Of course they replace iphone screens batteries. Big Money to repair macbooks talked about that here and my my experience with the cat situation in a bottle of soap but repenting responding the US coming apple said repairs pairs performed by untrained technicians. Might not follow. Proper safety and repair procedures could result in improper function product quality issues or safety events when asked whether took any action to block consumers from seeking unauthorized repair. The company said Apple Does Not Take any action to block consumers from seeking being out a resume pair shops the offer broader range repairs than those offered by apple's authorized technicians. You hear that apple does not take actions to block consumers restroom seeking out or using reproche out to offer a broader range every pairs than those offered by apple authorized technicians. That that doublespeak. So this if they're losing money then why highly insist on being the sole repair place. That's the question it truly truly is all right. I'm not do for MAC book. I wish I was but not in the budgeting that I am. I like bigger laptops. I really really do yet. I was I was in love with my seventeen is back book back in the day and then they went they bane of smaller than fifteen inch model. And it's all right but I'm still everywhere I go. I plug into a bigger screen so folks at Ain Gadget have a a review of this new sixteen inch back but pro but you know. Here's the bank they really haven't and besides making it bigger. They haven't changed that much now. A pros got a newer CPU. It's got a new keyboard at new clicker keyboard that isn't going to be susceptible to crumbs Sikorsky got a sixteen inch retina display quote unquote best in class speakers and a relative low starting price. That goes straight up if you add anything to do it and I don't know about this. It's got a five hundred retina display display now. This competes with Adele's infinity edge screens. And it's definitely a a legitimate step up from previous models reminder of the glory days of the seventeen seventeen inch that I was so much love with and of course they got a new keyboard which feels more like A. They're calling it a miracle keyboard and we've been complaining about that. The flat keyboards for a long time so The new keyboards have a half a half millimeter of travel. I like my experts. Thirteen keyboard the best. It's a one point. Three millimeter travel in it. So do people are saying. Their fingers. Don't hurt from typing on it all day. That's saying something right bayonet keyboard all day that that little small keyboard Click Click Click. Click clack so you guys know.

"This is one of those nights when someone inevitably looks at the number of guests and the size of the set and says you're gonna need a bigger boat. Joining us tonight is David chalian. Emily henderson. David Axelrod, glory boards are also van Jones. Jennifer Granholm, Rick Santorum in David urban how much impact do you think? President Trump former President Obama can have in these final days at this point. It's about motivation getting out your basement blizzak not persuasion, so they're not exactly traveling to places where they're not popular. And you know, you don't see Donald Trump in New Jersey, for example, suburban New Jersey, even Bedminster, whereas golf courses because there's a possibility that congressman could lose a seat, they're Republican and you're not going to see Barack Obama in Montana. So at this point, I believe that they're not going to persuade anybody. But it does remind people I think about the stakes of the election because you had these two presidents dueling each other tonight. Obama said, you know, no, one was indicted in my administration and reminding people about pre existing conditions and makes the case very well. For democrats. And you, you know, you have Trump out there doing what Donald Trump does which is talk about immigration, caravan, etc. So they're not convincing anybody. But it will motivate people who've did how much for President Obama's this about his legacy your, which is just personal. I mean, well, I don't I don't think that it's personal. I think that you know, this has been a big step for him. Because he he's he's been trying to search for the way to be a former president in the Trump era. And I think he's decided that this particular election is deeply important. I think he, you know, I don't think it's I think it's less about a legacy more about deep concern about the direction of the country. There's no doubt that anybody with any sense would know that the things that the president has done to dismantle some of the things that President Obama worked hard on our sim to him. But I honestly people have been urging him to come out for months and months and months, and I think he finally felt like. He had an obligation to speak out. Then you wanna play the this other glory was just referencing a prisoner. I'm talking about nobody in his administration. Having Davidson Swanson.
