The TTS “Documentary Unit” (that’s Gary with a little video camera) went to Graham on November 3rd to observe the ‘replacement’ for the March to the Polls that had been disrupted by Graham and Alamance County police on October 31. While (tediously) editing that footage, Gary discovered quite a bit of other footage from October 31st. He pieced that together into as cohesive narrative as he could, and in this episode we present both. So this is a rare, edited Triangle Talk Show. We’ll be back to the live, talking-heads version of the show next Sunday.LINKS:Full video of the October 31 march on Reverend Drumwright’s Facebook Feed: https://www.facebook.com/100001565414708/videos/3633900163338795/TTS on YouTube: https://YouTube.com/TriangleTalkShowThis show: https://youtu.be/c2vQLoZz2gsTTS Web Site: https://TriangleTalkShow.com

There’s a lot about the way our government runs that isn’t codified in law. Rather it’s just expected because ‘that’s the way we do things’. Aka: Norms. Trump has shown us why maybe more should be actually in the law (and what could possibly go wrong?). Well, that’s the title of the show, and we do talk about that eventually and at some length. But you’ll enjoy the talk at the end of the show about the Mandalorian more. If you’re a Star Wars fan. If not, stick with the Trump talk.LINKS:N&O ‘Give Butter’: https://givebutter.com/TheNewsObserverI want toast: https://youtu.be/gPr8nComZVgTTS on YouTube: https://YouTube.com/TriangleTalkShowThis show: https://youtu.be/f_3iQnF69RM?t=284TTS Web Site: https://TriangleTalkShow.com
The topic is "Democracy Won (for now)." Democracy met fascism, and democracy won. So far. Join us for a celebration, discussion of our likely next short term focus (Georgia), and a reconfiguration of our work and perhaps our name for the work ahead.This week’s Zoom on YouTube (skip the countdown): https://youtu.be/aFCXx466-ag?t=599TwT Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/768552279976912TwT Web Site: https://tuesdayswithtillis.org/TTS Website: https://TriangleTalkShow.comSome screen grabs from the video (see them on the TTS Web site)
Marchers in Graham (Alamance County NC) were stopped by the county Sheriff last Saturday (October 31) as they attempted to hold a rally and march to the polls. We heard the story from two of the activists present on the last TTS (Episode 120). They will try again on Tuesday, Election Day, November 3rd at 9 AM. Shon Green returns to update us on plans for the event. Understand that as we record on Monday at noon, planning is still underway. Shon recommends checking in on march leader Greg Drumwright’s Facebook Page for updates. Here’s what we see at noon Monday: We're Ready 4 CHANGE March to the Polls - tomorrow, 11/3 @ 8:30am Wayman's Chapel AME church. Further details are forthcoming via all social media this afternoon. ALAMANCE COUNTY rise up and lets celebrate our RIGHT TO VOTE!That’s the main takeaway, but Gary took the opportunity to talk with Shon in more detail about what happened Saturday, and what to expect on Tuesday. Hey, we didn’t even play the music!LINKS:Rev.

This was going to be a kind of routine Weekend conversation… nothing heavy. Some whining about the unnecessary semi-annual time change, some idle chatter about the election. And then Elizabeth Crudup called about 30 minutes to showtime. It seems there was a bit of a dustup in Graham between some people who were holding a ‘get out the vote’ rally and the Alamance County Sheriff. She had two people who wanted to get the word out about what happened. Scott Huffman is a candidate for US Congress from the 13th District, including Alamance County. Shon Green is a ‘full time activist’ and PR rep for People for Change. They were both there, and described a scene out of the Old South, with police confronting a totally peaceful group of citizens with tear gas. There was no vandalism going on. No broken windows. Nobody throwing fireworks. You’ll see some of this story on the news, but not all of it.LINKS:News & Observer video: https://www.newsobserver.com/news/local/article246866352.htmlScott Huffman (for Congress, NC 13th)Twitter: https://twitter.com/HuffmanForNCWeb: https://www.scotthuffman.com/TTS on YouTube: https://YouTube.com/TriangleTalkShowThis show: https://youtu.be/XiTZfAoH2mkTTS Web Site: https://TriangleTalkShow.com
Please join us today, Tuesday at 11:15 am (official start 11:30) for the Tuesdays With Tillis Indivisible zoom rally -- Week #196 to learn about local and national efforts to make sure every vote is counted, the GOP's efforts to suppress the vote, and what we can do to fight for our democracy. Our vision of America is that every citizen should be able to vote, every vote should be counted, and elected representatives should actually represent the interests of the people, not the interests of billionaires and corporations.

A general discussion week. You will hear some references to doing some interviews for a group called American Bridge, after the Zoom rally. Initially we thought it was going to be OK to include those on the stream, but when we got to that point, they requested that it not be live streamed. So you’ll see a kind of awkward cutoff. Gary will say “stay tuned”… but don’t. We never return to this stream 😒 This week’s Zoom on YouTube: https://youtu.be/_vA1eJRq17U?t=474TwT Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/768552279976912TwT Web Site: https://tuesdayswithtillis.org/TTS Website: https://TriangleTalkShow.comSome screen grabs from the video (see them on the TTS Web site)

We are going to "Follow the Money." Who is paying off whom for this SCOTUS confirmation, which will cement the power of corporations and billionaires?  To which foreign power does Trump owe money, and how much?  How much has he paid in taxes?  How many of us paid more?  How much is he worth?  Why is the GOP so eager to repeal the ACA? Also, this week we will be discussing Cal Cunningham's policy proposals.   If you can, review them so we can discuss.  No matter what, we absolutely have to vote Tillis out of office, and Cal's policies are vastly better. This week’s show on YouTube: https://youtu.be/vm-5HLimnrw?t=602TwT Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/768552279976912TwT Web Site: https://tuesdayswithtillis.org/TTS Website: https://TriangleTalkShow.comSome screen grabs from the video (see them on the TTS Web site)
If you only know Jenna Wadsworth from her now infamous TIK-TOK video about Trump’s ‘October Surprise’ announcement that he had contracted Covid-19, we’ll show you another side. A side you really ought to see. Jenna is the Democrat opposing Steve Troxler for NC Agriculture Commissioner. She’s currently a Wake County Soil and Water Conservation District Supervisor. Not that there’s anything wrong with that TIK TOK video. It was a biting, ironic reaction to Trump contracting the disease he had dismissed as a hoax, said would be gone by April, and refused to take the steps needed to minimize the damage… and death… it has ended up causing.Well, maybe that depends on how old you are. Trump’s legions hate it (and her), of course… enough to be phoning and posting veiled death threats. But Jenna’s been getting shade from state Democratic leadership, too. TTS host Nanny Jen, on the other hand, found it hilarious, and a perfect example of what TIK TOK is all about for young people. ‘OK Boomer’ generation host Gary Pearce also found it funny, but because it was the first video he’d seen of Wadsworth, he needed to go check YouTube for a few of her other appearances. The TIK TOK video in question was ‘performance’, he says, and maybe not designed to make the best first impression. This show can be that better first impression (and if you’re young, feel free to disagree). When you watch or listen to this program, you’ll see it was mistitled (as Stand Back and Mask Up). We invited Jenna on the show at the last minute, after that TIK-TOK video became, well, notorious. But then we never really talked much about Trump. Jenna owned the show.LINKS:Jenna Wadsworth campaign web site: https://www.jennawadsworth.com/Jenna’s TIK TOK video (on WRAL - the original was taken down): https://www.wral.com/coronavirus/jenna-wadsworths-tiktok-video-on-trumps-coronavirus/19317513/Jenna on UNC-TV/PBS: https://www.pbs.org/video/jenna-wadsworth-on-running-for-nc-agriculture-commissioner-lcc6ud/N&O Article: https://www.newsobserver.com/news/politics-government/article246173660.htmlGet your Booty to the Polls (not Poles) video: https://youtu.be/eTlv2gfrINMReal Women Vote for Trump video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MYsvYLfaXF4TTS on YouTube: https://YouTube.com/TriangleTalkShowThis show: https://youtu.be/wWwd1F6JGWUTTS Web Site: https://TriangleTalkShow.com

Lynn Bernstein returns to talk about election transparency in Wake County and North Carolina. Our conversation is way more fun that this makes it sound! Why are our appointed election officials in Wake County being such dicks about transparency? Lynn is looking for volunteers to hang out at polling places and county Boards of Election just after the polls close on November 3rd to document the “Poll Tape”. Turns out you can do that!

We bust out a mid-week show to take you to a protest rally by Sunrise Movement Raleigh in front of the TV station that hosted the second Cunningham-Tillis Senate Election Debate. What could be more ‘pro American’ that a protest? Well, you’ll see.And we promote another protest coming up this Saturday (Sept. 26) from 3 to 5 on the Fayetteville Street Mall. It’s billed as the Rally Against Corruption, focused on the lack of charges against the police officers involved in killing Breonna Taylor.TTS on YouTube: https://YouTube.com/TriangleTalkShowThis show: https://youtu.be/Fe9QL--7PyQTTS Web Site: https://TriangleTalkShow.com
