Every week, Amanda and Faiz have a wide-ranging, unguarded, and occasionally profanity-laden conversation with reporters, activists, organizers, political scientists, campaign operatives – and even some conservatives – in order to shine a light on the problems we face and figure out how we can fix them. Both bring deep knowledge and experience building grassroots movements for change. Amanda is the co-founder and executive director Run for Something, which recruits and supports young progressives running for local state and local offices, and host of the Run for Something podcast on Dear Media.

The Mizrahi Democratic Rainbow was founded in March 1996 by 40 women and men. In December 1996, following a series of discussions, the movement was formally established by 100 members, who constituted the Constituent Assembly. Since then, this body has expanded and it functions as the council of the movement, in which the fundamental decisions binding the movement are made. At the founding conference, the secretariat of the movement, which operates under the decisions of the movement's council, was appointed. In addition, the Committee of the Spokespersons and the Audit Committee was elected. All officials were elected in secret elections and committed to equal representation of women and men in all elected institutions of the movement. It was decided that the elections for all institutions of the movement would be held once a year. source What was the February 26, 2023 Hawara pogrom?(05:24 or p.2 in the transcript)Following the murder of two Israeli brothers in the West Bank on Feb. 26, 2023, a mob of around 400 Israelis attacked the Palestinian town of Hawara. They torched dozens of homes and cars, leaving one dead and hundreds wounded before being stopped by Israeli security forces. Though some government leaders – including the head of the parliament’s National Security Committee – praised the mob or called for the state itself to erase the town’s existence, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu condemned them for “taking the law into their own hands.” Others – including the top Israeli military commander Major General Yehuda Fuchs in the West Bank – used even stronger language, calling the attack a “pogrom,” as did a statement against the attack by the Israeli Historical Society, signed by some of Israel’s most renowned historians. According to historian John Klier, a pogrom is “an outbreak of mass violence directed against a minority religious, ethnic or social group [that] usually implies central instigation and control, or at minimum the passivity of local authorities.” source Who was Meir Kahane?(06:08 or p.2 in the transcript)Meir Kahane was an American-born Israeli political extremist and rabbi who campaigned for self-protection of Jews. Kahane joined a paramilitary, right-wing youth movement in 1946. He was ordained an Orthodox rabbi in 1957 after studies at Mirrer Yeshiva in New York. In 1968 he formed the militant Jewish Defense League (JDL), attracted followers with the post-Holocaust slogan “Never Again,” and sent armed patrols of young Jews into Black neighborhoods. After being imprisoned for conspiring to make bombs, Kahane moved to Israel in 1971. There Kahane formed the Kach Party and stirred nationalist fervor against Arabs, whom he campaigned to remove (violently, if necessary) from Israel and all Israeli-occupied areas. He won a seat in the Israeli Knesset (parliament) in 1984, but his term ended when Israel banned the Kach Party for it

Party registration is declining in both red and blue states.  Yet we continue to operate within an electoral framework–and corresponding media paradigm–that assumes that party membership is the default.  This is most obvious in closed primaries but it infects all aspects of politics including redistricting, campaign finance laws and procedures, election administration and enforcement–even who is allowed to serve as a poll worker on election day.  Our election system does not reflect America. This has a profound effect on partisanship and polarization. Appreciating why so many Americans are identifying as independents–and choosing to register to vote as such despite the negative consequences–is important for political reformers, journalists, candidates and elected officials working to chart a new path forward.Social MediaAI: Decodes the System: Website, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and TikTokFind us on Clubhouse at @AiDecodes.Help me become the #1 (number one) podcast and podcaster for technology, public policy, data, law, and culture.

Ep 25: Decoding the Book "Can We Trust AI?" and How Teachers and Doctors Can Leverage the Technology for Better Outcomes with Dr. Rama Chellappa On this episode of AI: Decodes the System, Dr. Rama Chellappa, author of Can We Trust AI?, and AI decode how Dr. Chellappa got involved in artificial intelligence (AI) research and why he decided to write a book on if we can trust AI? During the conversation, Dr. Chellappa breaks down AI and how, contrary to popular belief, the technology has been around for over 60 years and is ready to start receiving social security. Dr. Chellappa talks about how we work with AI today, will work with the technology in the future, and why we all need to understand how to work with AI just like we interact with the internet and cell phones. He also discussed the importance of responsible AI and training algorithms to be less biased. One of my favorite insights from the conversation is Dr. Chellappa's moonshot idea that classrooms should have one physical teacher and thirty virtual teachers. Can we trust AI?

Episode 282- Green Fascism www.commsolutionsmn.com- There is no end to the amount of money that government is asking from us. The problem is that the costs grow out of control as we implement all of these new green regulations. Thrifty is a word not found in the government dictionary. Stearns County wants a new jail, but it will cost at least $300 million, which is only three times what they originally thought. They want to pay for this jail with a local option sales tax, which hits the poorest people the hardest. And hey… the county may annex some township land and acquire some businesses to boot. Remember that new Vikings stadium we just bought seven years ago? Well they want another $280 million for maintenance, and $48 million this year alone. They paid $527,500 to have the building assessed. They need the money for weather stripping, a broken sign, and to put into their A/V system. Cities and counties are writing plans on how to renovate everything, making sure that they can make all of their green updates. They get all sorts of funding from the Federal and state governments, but there are always strings attached. Groups like Drive Electric Minnesota make zoning recommendations to move cities toward zero emissions. How do we get a handle on this and drive back the push to remake America in the image of autocrats? We also discuss the recent indictment and case against President Donald Trump. Most people, regardless of affiliation, are in agreement that this is political. How is this going to play out? It's throwing a bunch of gasoline on a fire that was already coming to finish the job it already started. All we know is that this is just warming up. Have you checked out our Spotify playlist? At the beginning of each episode, Jason quotes some song lyrics that have to do with the subject matter of the podcast. Andrew never knows what they are, but now he can… and so can you!

Governor Brian Kemp urges GOP to move on from 2020 election, family of man who died at overcrowded Fulton Jail wants facility shut down On this week's edition of Political Breakfast, Republican Strategist Brian Robinson and Atlanta Civic Circle Executive Director Saba Long join Lisa Rayam to weigh-in on Governor Brian Kemp's latest interview with CNN. Kemp recently made comments during a private Republican National Committee donor retreat in Nashville — that his fellow Republicans need to leave any claims that the 2020 election was stolen, behind them.Plus, more woes at Fulton County's overcrowded jail, as Sheriff Pat Labat has accepted the resignations of several staff members. That follows an investigation into the case of a 35-year-old Black man, who was allegedly found dead there last year, in the psychiatric wing covered in bed bugs. His family alleges medical staff did little to help him.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

High Country Politics – Government and Elections News from the American West – April 19, 2023 Lauren Boebert’s Q1 fundraising falls far short of Democrat Adam Frisch | Arizona GOP Senate primary shows Kari Lake with wide lead – Blake Masters is at the back of the pack | Colorado Gov Jared Polis attempts to lower housing costs with statewide land use reformsSupport this show and all the work in the Heartland POD universe by going to heartlandpod.com and clicking the link for Patreon, or go to Patreon.com/HeartlandPod to sign up. Alright! Let’s get into it: COLORADO NEWSLINE: Frisch with cashBY: CHASE WOODRUFF – APRIL 17, 2023 4:35 PMRepublican U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert has consistently ranked as one of Colorado’s top congressional fundraisers since her election in 2020, raking in small-dollar contributions from a national network of grassroots conservative donors.But in her bid to win a third term next year, she may have to overcome an even stronger fundraising effort by her likely Democratic challenger.Adam Frisch, a former Aspen City Council member who lost to Boebert by just 546 votes in the 2022 election, raised more than $1.7 million in the first quarter of 2023 — more than double the amount Boebert raised in the same period, according to Federal Election Commission disclosures.Frisch said in a statement, “I am honored to be receiving the support of so many hardworking Colorado families,” “Boebert’s fundraising numbers reaffirm that her days in Congress are numbered because she continues to ignore the needs of her district, and instead prioritizes being a leader of the anger-tainment industry.”If Boebert continues to trail Frisch in fundraising, it would be the first time the far-right representative has been at a financial disadvantage since her successful 2020 primary challenge against five-term GOP Rep. Scott Tipton. Boebert unseated Tipton despite raising just $133,256 to nearly $1 Million raised by Tipton in the first half of 2020.In her bid for reelection last year, Boebert raised nearly $8 million – by far the highest total of any of Colorado’s U.S. House candidates. Frisch, who narrowly won a three-way Democratic primary with 42% of the vote, raised $4.4 million from donors, and supplemented that with over $2.2 million in personal loans to his campaign.Boebert was widely projected to win reelection by a comfortable margin in 2022, and neither Republicans nor Democrats spent heavily through super PACs to influence the 3rd District race. But after Frisch’s unexpectedly strong performance in a race that triggered Colorado’s first congressional recount in 20 years, the stage is set for a blockbuster rematch in 2024.Earlier this month, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee included the 3rd District, which encompasses most of Colorado’s Western Slope as well as Pueblo County, on its list of 2024 targets. A poll released by a progressive group last week showed Frisch and Boebert tied at 45% support among likely voters.In what promises to be an unusually high-profile congressional race, both Boebert and Frisch continue to rely on contributions from out-of-state donors. About 63% of Boebert’s itemized donations in the first quarter came from contributors outside of Colorado; for Frisch, the figure was 57%.In other U.S. House districts, Democratic Rep. Yadira Caraveo of Thornton, who narrowly defeated Republican state Sen. Barbara Kirkmeyer as the first representative of Colorado’s new 8th District last year, reported raising $339,307 so far for 2024. Democratic Rep. Brittany Pettersen of Arvada, who won the race to succeed longtime former Rep. Ed Perlmutter in Colorado’s 7th district, reporting raising $218,108. THE HILL: Kari Lake holds wide lead in new AZ GOP Senate primary pollBY CAROLINE VAKIL – 04/17/23 12:58 PM ETA poll released by J. L. Partners and shared with The Hill on Monday found former gubernatorial candidate and incessant Trump acolyte Kari Lake receiving 38 percent support among registered Republican and undeclared voters. Lake was followed next by the primary opponent she bested in last year’s Republican gubernatorial primary – Karrin Robson – who came in with just 10 percent support.Pinal County Sheriff Mark Lamb was third at 8 percent, followed by former Arizona Senate candidate Blake Masters with 7 percent, and former state Attorney General candidate Abe Hamadeh with 4 percent. 29 percent said they’re undecided.One GOP strategist who requested anonymity to speak candidly said, “If Kari Lake decides to run, it’s clear she is not only the front-runner but will run away with the nomination.

Everything You Need to Know About Trump's Indictment Former President Trump will be criminally indicted. This is a historic first. But what does it mean legally and politically? Jessica walks through what we're likely to see in the indictment, what an arraignment will look like, and what the next steps will be.
Everything You Need to Know About the $1.6 billion Dominion v Fox Case The biggest defamation case we've seen in decades is about to go to trial. Dominion Voting Systems, a manufacturer of electronic voting machines and associated software, has sued Fox News and Fox Corporation for defamation, based on false claims that Dominion helped rig the 2020 presidential election for President Biden. Jessica talks through exactly what Dominion will have to prove to succeed in its case.
What is it like to cover the Supreme Court? (Guest – David Savage) Los Angeles Times Supreme Court reporter David Savage joins Jessica on this special episode of Passing Judgment. Savage has been covering the Supreme Court for more than 30 years, a time period that has seen substantial changes in both the composition of the Court as well as the way the Court addresses issues. Jessica recorded this conversation, in part, for her Constitutional Law students at Loyola Law School. We also think it will be fun for you, our Passing Judgment audience, to hear David and Jessica talk about what it has been like to make a career out of covering the Supreme Court. David shares his thoughts on issues related to judicial activism, originalism, Chief Justice John Roberts' judicial philosophy, and what accounted for the rise of the Federalist Society.
How Strong Is DA Alvin Bragg's Case Against Trump? Depending on what you've heard, Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg's case against former President Trump is somewhere between frivolous or airtight. And it is likely that one's position depends on the beholder's opinion about Donald Trump himself. In today's episode, Jessica strips away the partisan perspectives and assesses the real world legal nuts and bolts of exactly what the charges are, as well as the obstacles that Bragg faces in proving his case.
Mifepristone – What Do You Need To Know About The Abortion Pill Litigation? In a nation of complicated legal machinations, the mifepristone situation is especially complicated. U.S. District Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk last week suspended a number of laws regulating the popular and widely-used abortion drug mifepristone. Kacsmaryk’s ruling affected both the Food and Drug Administration's original 2000 approval of mifepristone as well as subsequent updates to laws regulating the drug from 2016 and 2019. Multiple appeals to Kacsmaryk’s ruling followed, and late this week the Supreme Court issued an administrative stay on the lower court’s ruling in the aftermath of a formal request from the Justice Department to block the new restrictions to the drug. Limiting access to mifepristone would have far-reaching implications of the ability of the FDA to approve other drugs, and to further complicate the situation, a ruling out of Washington was issued that could potentially limit Kacsmaryk’s decision. As the story develops in real time, Jessica updates you on the current state of the law surrounding mifepristone, as well as how we got here and where the law is going.

The Smalls talks to EOS Worldwide about "Traction"! Listen in as your hosts Just Nate and guest host Greg Glover chat with a great new friend, Mr. Hark Herold of EOS Worldwide. This week is our final installment of the EOS system, what a journey we've had.
Hark brings 20+ years of experience as a military leader and strategist to his role facilitating EOS. Having served overseas and at the Pentagon, he has a unique perspective on what it takes to execute in high-pressure situations.
For the past five years, Hark has leveraged his background in the Air Force to help military veteran and spouse entrepreneurs grow their businesses from seed to scale—working with companies in a broad range of industries. After seeing what EOS was able to do for one of these companies, he became passionate about providing that for others.
Hark knows from experience how to bring large teams together under a shared vision. As an EOS facilitator, he’s singularly equipped to help businesses tackle the long-standing structural issues that prevent them from flourishing, so they can move forward with purpose and confidence.
In this episode we talk in depth about the third of 6 key components "Traction".

Mind Your Business – Previewing Vision Northwest North Carolina Community conversations can be impactful when it comes to creating change. A common theme for businesses across Northwest North Carolina centers around the ability to recruit and retain staff. Approaching these approaches "the same old way," is not providing the best results when it comes to filling positions and fostering longevity. What are the questions you should be asking as you are looking to build your team? What are employees of today valuing most when it comes to picking a career pursuit? On this week's Mind Your Business we preview the 4th annual Vision Northwest North Carolina economic development summit, set for May 25th in Boone. The theme of this year's event centers around Returning and Retaining Today's Workforce. We'll examine some of the main community conversations around educational attainment and how asking the right questions of your staff can lead to a more efficient way of doing business in the future.Mind your Business is produced weekly by the Boone Area Chamber of Commerce. The radio show airs each Thursday morning at 10:05AM on WATA (1450AM/96.5FM) in the High Country.
