GDP Script/ Top Stories for Dec 3rd  Publish Date:  Dec 1st  HENSSLER 15 From the Henssler Financial Studio Welcome to the Gwinnett Daily Post Podcast. Today is Sunday, December 3rd and Happy heavenly Birthday to musician Andy Williams. ***12.03.23 - BIRTHDAY - ANDY WILLIAMS*** I'm Bruce Jenkins and here are your top stories presented by Peggy Slappy Properties. Over a third of young adults had anxiety or depression during pandemic Study says vegan diet can help rapidly improve heart health Mark Stoops says Kentucky fought the wrong battle in the SEC scheduling war All of this and more is coming up on the Gwinnett Daily Post podcast, and if you are looking for community news, we encourage you to listen daily and subscribe! Break 1: Peggy Slappy STORY 1: Over a third of young adults had anxiety or depression during pandemic A study by Northwestern University found that people aged over 40 experienced lower levels of anxiety and depression during the COVID-19 pandemic than their younger counterparts. Over one-third of young adults were highly stressed during the pandemic, with anxiety and depression rates significantly higher among those aged 18 to 39 compared to those over 40. The study revealed that 40 percent of young adults had anxiety, and 33 percent had depression, compared to 31 percent and 24 percent, respectively, for those over 40. Economic precarity and responses to social upheaval were identified as factors contributing to young adults' worse mental well-being. STORY 2: Vegan diet can help rapidly improve heart health: study A study by Stanford University found that adopting a vegan diet for eight weeks significantly improved heart health, with the most substantial changes occurring in the first four weeks. The research focused on identical twins to eliminate genetic and upbringing variables. Participants on the vegan diet showed lower cholesterol levels, insulin, and body weight compared to omnivores. Vegan participants experienced a 20 percent drop in fasting insulin, reducing diabetes risk, and lost an average of 4.2 pounds more than omnivores. The study emphasized that incorporating more plant-based foods into one's diet could offer health benefits, even if not adopting a strictly vegan lifestyle. STORY 3: Mark Story: In the SEC football scheduling war, has Kentucky fought the wrong battle? The Southeastern Conference (SEC) football championship game between No. 1 Georgia and No. 8 Alabama will mark the end of an era, as the SEC is scrapping divisions, coinciding with the arrival of Oklahoma and Texas in 2024-25. The new format will feature the top two teams in the league's 16-team standings. Stoops argues that preserving the divisional split would have been more beneficial for Kentucky's football future. The SEC's current division era, in place since 1992, has provided meaningful annual rivalries, competitive balance, and geographic proximity. The article suggests that the focus on creating more diversity in scheduling within the league may not be worth sacrificing the advantages of the divisional format.

We'll be right back Break 2: MOG – TOM WAGES – DTL STORY 4: Could immigrants be America's new swing voter group? A nationwide survey conducted by The Times in partnership with KFF reveals a degree of ambivalence among immigrants, a group considered part of the Democratic base. While many lean Democratic, a significant number are not strongly attached to either major party. The survey, conducted among more than 3,300 immigrants, reflects the diversity of political views within this demographic. Overwhelming majorities indicated that their financial situation improved after moving to the U.S., challenging the conventional wisdom surrounding immigrants' partisan allegiance. The findings highlight a potential swing group among immigrants, showcasing their varied political perspectives and a willingness to consider alternatives. STORY 5: Christmas at Biltmore remains a beloved holiday tradition Biltmore House, the 250-room mansion built by George Vanderbilt, continues its long-standing Christmas tradition, inviting guests to experience the holiday enchantment with twinkling lights, ornaments, and hand-decorated Christmas trees. The estate, set against the backdrop of the Blue Ridge Mountains, offers the Christmas at Biltmore Daytime Celebration from Nov. 3 to Jan. 7, allowing visitors to tour the house, gardens, conservatory, winery, and Antler Hill Village. The Candlelight Christmas Evenings, running from Nov. 3 to Jan. 6, provides an Old World charm with thousands of lights, a 55-foot Norway spruce tree, and luminaries lining the walkways. The estate also features the Italian Renaissance Alive exhibition until Jan. 7, and special stay packages at the Inn on Biltmore Estate and Village Hotel. We'll be back in a moment Break 3:  JACKSON - INGLES 9 – ESOG STORY 6: Beverage Lab exhibit debuts at World of Coke The World of Coca-Cola in Atlanta introduces a new and immersive experience, the Beverage Lab, making it an even more compelling destination for the holiday season. The interactive exhibit allows visitors to actively participate in exploring the science, creativity, and innovation behind Coca-Cola's diverse lineup of drinks. The Beverage Lab features sections like "Look Inside," demystifying flavor creation and carbonation science; "Taste the Past," where visitors can sample classic drinks from Coca-Cola's vault, including New Coke; and "Shape the Future," where opinions on potential soft-drink formulas can be shared. Admission to Beverage Lab is included with general admission to the museum, offering various attractions. STORY 7: State Senate study committee recommends repealing CON law The Senate Study Committee on Certificate of Need (CON) Reform in Georgia has recommended repealing the state law governing hospital construction and medical services, concluding that the decades-old CON law hampers advances in health-care delivery, especially in rural areas. Georgia's CON law, in place since 1979, requires applicants for new medical facilities or health-care services to demonstrate the need to the state Department of Community Health. The committee's recommendation includes repealing the CON law or introducing reform measures that exempt certain healthcare services and facilities from the CON process, aiming to enhance healthcare delivery in the state. We'll have final thoughts after this. Break 4: Henssler 60 Signoff – Thanks again for hanging out with us on today's Gwinnett Daily Post podcast.

Emmett's efforts to introduce diverse flavors and meals have garnered recognition and praise, showcasing the commitment of the School Nutrition team to offer nutritious and appealing meals to students. STORY 2: Northside Hospital Launches Cancer Second Opinion Program Northside Hospital Cancer Institute has introduced a Cancer Second Opinion Program to provide patients with a swift evaluation of cancer care and treatment options. The program connects patients to a team of experts in medical and radiation oncology, surgery, and research, including specialists in rare and complex cancers.

Around 200 soldiers from the 108th have been activated from the unit's armories in Calhoun, Dalton, Cedartown, and Canton. The soldiers will undergo pre-deployment training at Fort Stewart, Texas, and Germany before arriving in Kosovo as part of the NATO Kosovo Force (KFOR) for a peacekeeping mission. The deployment is expected to last around eight months. A sendoff ceremony will be held on January 2, 2024, at the Calhoun campus of Georgia Northwestern Technical College. STORY 5: Apartment Complex Under Construction in Canton Madison Communities has begun construction on Madison Canton, a 252-unit apartment complex located near downtown Canton, Georgia. Situated at the intersection of Marietta Road and Jackie Moore Lane, the complex will feature a variety of amenities, including a clubhouse, fitness center, cyber lounge, and workspaces. Outdoor amenities include a pool and deck with grilling stations, a dog park, a dog wash, and pickleball courts. The units will have modern interiors with granite countertops, walk-in closets, full-sized washers and dryers, and private outdoor patios and balconies. The first units are expected to be complete in the second quarter of 2025.   Commercial: CHEROKEE CHAMBER - INGLES 9   STORY 6: Republican-Drawn Legislative Maps Come Under Fire The Georgia General Assembly's special redistricting session commenced with Democrats and watchdog groups criticizing Republican-backed proposed maps for the state House and Senate, claiming they are unfair to Black voters. Both maps aim to comply with a federal court ruling that declared previous maps violated the Voting Rights Act. Democrats argue that the proposed maps make unnecessary changes beyond the court order, while they have released an alternative map focusing on the specific districts identified in the court ruling. Critics also highlight extensive redrawing and incumbent pairings in the Republican-backed maps for partisan reasons. STORY 7: State Senate study committee recommends repealing CON law A committee in Georgia, comprising lawmakers, healthcare executives, and an insurance industry representative, has recommended repealing the state law governing hospital construction and medical services. The Senate Study Committee on Certificate of Need (CON) Reform believes that the decades-old CON law is hindering advances in healthcare delivery, especially in rural Georgia. The CON law, enacted in 1979 to reduce healthcare costs by avoiding duplication, requires applicants to demonstrate the need for a new medical facility or service in a community. The committee's recommendation for repeal or reform will now be considered by the full Senate during the 2024 legislative session. We'll have closing comments after this.  COMMERCIAL: Henssler 60  SIGN OFF –   Thanks again for listening to today's Cherokee Tribune Ledger podcast. .

The Rich Zeoli Show- Full Episode (11/15/2023): 3:05pm- On Monday, Governor Kathy Hochul (D-NY) announced that the state of New York will begin a massive data collection effort targeting social media accounts. Hochul explained the purpose of this new government surveillance program is “to counter some of the negativity and reach out to people.” Bizarrely, Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley echoed a similarly disturbing sentiment regarding social media usage while appearing on Fox News—arguing that social media accounts should no longer be anonymous and that accounts need to be verified with the user's names and other identifying information. You can read more here: https://news.yahoo.com/nikki-haleys-crazy-plan-require-150320028.html 3:15pm- In response to Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley's bizarre call for ending anonymity online, her supporters pointed to a tweet from Donald Trump on May 24th, 2013, where he joked: “It should be mandatory that all haters and losers use their real name or identification when tweeting—they will no longer be so brave!” An end to anonymity online would be disastrous. As Rich notes, the essays that comprise The Federalist Papers were written by James Madison, Alexander Hamilton, and John Jay under the pseudonym “Publius.” 3:30pm- On Wednesday, FBI Director Christopher Wray and Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas testified before a House Homeland Security subcommittee. During the hearing, Director Wray conceded that individuals on the terror watch list may have crossed into the United States illegally. Congressman Michael Guest (R-MS) noted that in 2019, former DHS Sec. Jeh Johnson referred to 1,000 illegal border crossing “overwhelms the system.” With thousands of migrants entering the U.S. illegally on a daily basis throughout the Biden Administration, Rep. Guest asked Sec. Mayorkas how many crossing—in his estimations—would be considered overwhelming? 3:50pm- During Wednesday's House Homeland Security subcommittee, Congressman Michael McCaul (R-TX) quoted 18 U.S.C. Section 2 (a): “whoever commits an offense against the United States or aids, and abets, counsels, commands, induces or procures its commission, is punishable as the principal.” He then accused Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas of “aiding and abetting” criminals that have exploited the Biden Administration's relaxed border security policies. 4:05pm- Pacific Legal Foundation Senior Attorney Brian Hodges joins The Rich Zeoli Show to discuss Sheetz v. County of El Dorado—a property rights case which will be reviewed by United States Supreme Court. The Pacific Legal Foundation writes: “The government can't hold the right to use your property hostage in order to extract exorbitant fees. That's akin to extortion… Permit fees must be proportional to the public costs imposed by new development. Otherwise, the government may leverage the permit process to take property it is not entitled to, skirting the Constitution's Fifth Amendment prohibition against taking private property without just compensation.” You can read more about the case here: https://pacificlegal.org/case/sheetz-permit-extortion-scotus/ 4:15pm- Joe Lancaster of Reason writes: “When a state gives away tax money to a private company in an attempt to sway its business decisions, the least that a taxpayer can hope for is some openness in the process. Unfortunately, the state of Michigan's economic development agency is actively preventing transparency, leaving questions on how the state plans to spend billions of taxpayer dollars unanswered.” Could Michigan lawmakers signing a nondisclosure agreements impact how those lawmakers vote?

An end to anonymity online would be disastrous. As Rich notes, the essays that comprise The Federalist Papers were written by James Madison, Alexander Hamilton, and John Jay under the pseudonym “Publius.” Rich quotes Batman from The Dark Knight Rises: “the mask is not for you, it's for the people you care about.” You can read more here: https://news.yahoo.com/nikki-haleys-crazy-plan-require-150320028.html 5:05pm- On Wednesday, President Joe Biden met with Chinese leader Xi Jinping at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in San Francisco. David E. Sanger and Katie Rogers of The New York Times write, “President Xi Jinping of China told President Biden on Wednesday that it was ‘unrealistic' for either of the two largest economic and military superpowers to expect to ‘remodel the other,' as both countries each tried, in their own way, to halt a downward spiral in their relationship.” You can read more here: https://www.nytimes.com/live/2023/11/15/world/biden-xi-apec-summit 5:15pm- New Jersey's First Lady Tammy Murphy formally announced her intention to run for U.S. Senate—challenging Sen.

Local citizens are now wondering: why did it take the arrival of Joe Biden and Xi Jinping for local government to clean up this dangerous mess? Governor Gavin Newsom told reporters: “I know folks are saying, ‘oh they are just cleaning up this place because all those fancy leaders are coming to town' and that's true… because it's true.” According to Zach Jewell of The Daily Wire, “a news crew from the Czech Republic was reportedly robbed at gunpoint in San Francisco on Sunday as the team reported on the Asia-Pacific Economic Partnership (APEC) summit taking place in the city.” You can read more here: https://www.dailywire.com/news/foreign-news-crew-robbed-at-gunpoint-while-covering-apec-summit-in-san-francisco 6:20pm- While appearing on CNN with Jake Tapper, MIT graduate student Talia Khan—who is of Jewish faith—says she no longer feels safe on campus. Virginia Kruta of The Daily Wire writes: “The Massachusetts Institute of Technology took considerable backlash over a statement explaining why more actions hadn't been taken against students who promoted anti-Semitic and even genocidal slogans while participating in pro-Palestinian demonstrations on campus…the school had apparently refrained from taking action because they were concerned that foreign students—who make up nearly one-third of MIT's student body—could have their visas revoked.” You can read the full article here:https://www.dailywire.com/news/expel-deport-repeat-mit-blasted-for-protecting-anti-semitic-students-over-fears-theyd-lose-their-visas 6:30pm- According to reports, Hunter Biden is requesting that former President Donald Trump and former Attorney General Bill Bahr be subpoenaed in his criminal gun case.

The Rich Zeoli Show- Full Episode (11/14/2023): 3:05pm- In a social media post, Democratic political strategist David Axelrod expressed doubt that President Joe Biden could win reelection without strategic changes to his campaign and alterations to how the public perceives him—explaining that Biden needs to decide “whether it's in his best interest or the country's” to run again. According to reports, in response to the social media post, President Biden dismissed the critiques and referred to Axelrod as a “prick.” You can read more here: https://nypost.com/2023/11/13/news/biden-reportedly-called-axelrod-a-p-as-tensions-boil-over-with-former-obama-adviser/ 3:15pm- While appearing on CNBC, Speaker of the House Mike Johnson announced that he is endorsing Donald Trump for President. 3:20pm- In a new article featured in Politico, political statistician Nate Silver warns that “Democrats would be taking a huge risk by replacing Biden—but they're also taking a huge risk by nominating him.” Similarly, Russell Berman of The Atlantic wonders if President Joe Biden's reelection campaign is “toast.” You can read Silver's piece here: https://www.politico.com/news/2023/11/13/biden-polls-2024-nate-silver-00126903.

Lucy writes: “When Michelle Smith voted for President Biden in 2020, she thought he would help people like her, a Black mother working two jobs and raising three teenage boys in North Philadelphia. Now she says she won't vote for him again, citing higher prices, skyrocketing rent and a feeling she has been left behind.” A recent New York Times/Sienna poll suggests that 22% of Black voters would likely support Donald Trump in a hypothetical rematch of the 2020 presidential race. In 2020, Biden won the Black vote 92% to 8%.

The Rich Zeoli Show- Hour 1: In a social media post, Democratic political strategist David Axelrod expressed doubt that President Joe Biden could win reelection without strategic changes to his campaign and alterations to how the public perceives him—explaining that Biden needs to decide “whether it's in his best interest or the country's” to run again. According to reports, in response to the social media post, President Biden dismissed the critiques and referred to Axelrod as a “prick.” You can read more here: https://nypost.com/2023/11/13/news/biden-reportedly-called-axelrod-a-p-as-tensions-boil-over-with-former-obama-adviser/ While appearing on CNBC, Speaker of the House Mike Johnson announced that he is endorsing Donald Trump for President. In a new article featured in Politico, political statistician Nate Silver warns that “Democrats would be taking a huge risk by replacing Biden—but they're also taking a huge risk by nominating him.” Similarly, Russell Berman of The Atlantic wonders if President Joe Biden's reelection campaign is “toast.” You can read Silver's piece here: https://www.politico.com/news/2023/11/13/biden-polls-2024-nate-silver-00126903.

Lucy writes: “When Michelle Smith voted for President Biden in 2020, she thought he would help people like her, a Black mother working two jobs and raising three teenage boys in North Philadelphia. Now she says she won't vote for him again, citing higher prices, skyrocketing rent and a feeling she has been left behind.” A recent New York Times/Sienna poll suggests that 22% of Black voters would likely support Donald Trump in a hypothetical rematch of the 2020 presidential race. In 2020, Biden won the Black vote 92% to 8%.

Join America's Roundtable (https://americasrt.com/) radio co-hosts Natasha Srdoc and Joel Anand Samy with U.S. Congressman Doug Lamborn, chairman, Strategic Forces Subcommittee, member, House Armed Services Committee and co-chair, The Congressional Israel Allies Caucus. The conversation focuses on the terrorist attacks carried out by Iranian-backed Hamas killing over 1,400 Israelis including 31 Americans. Over 4,500 Israelis have been wounded, and more than 200 Israeli hostages including Americans have been taken from Israel by Hamas into Gaza. Congressman Lamborn provides an update on the realities on the ground, the difficult road ahead, and the significance of the US-Israel partnership in confronting terrorism and instability in the Middle East. The discussion also focuses on Iran, the state sponsor of terrorism, and how the rogue nation's ambition in acquiring nuclear weapons may adversely impact the region and the world. This past week, Reuters reported, “Russia said it need no longer obey U.N. Security Council restrictions on giving missile technology to its ally Iran once they expire…without saying whether it now planned to support Tehran's missile development.” The Abraham Accords are brought to the forefront as the potential Saudi Arabia - Israel normalization of relations could usher in a historic transformation in the Middle East. America's leadership is vital in advancing peace through strength. On America's Roundtable, Congressman Doug Lamborn also addresses serious concerns about the national security crisis at the US southern border. Congressman Doug Lamborn (R-CO) In Colorado, Doug Lamborn was called to public office and served in the Colorado General Assembly from 1995 to 2006, in both the State House and State Senate. During his time in the Colorado Legislature, Doug was elected Senate President Pro-Tem, served as Chairman of the Senate State Military and Veterans Affairs Committee, Chairman of the Senate Republican Caucus, and House Majority Whip. Doug Lamborn was the lead sponsor of the largest tax cut in Colorado history. Doug Lamborn was then elected to the US House of Representatives in 2006 to represent Colorado's Fifth District which is based in Colorado Springs. It is one of our nation's most military-intensive congressional districts and the home to more than 100,000 veterans who have served our country with distinction and honor. Because of the district's military and veteran concentration, Doug serves as a high-ranking member on the House Armed Services Committee, Chairman of the Strategic Forces Subcommittee and a former member for ten years of the Veterans Affairs Committee. americasrt.com (https://americasrt.com/) https://ileaderssummit.org/ | https://jerusalemleaderssummit.com/ America's Roundtable on Apple Podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/americas-roundtable/id1518878472 Twitter: @RepDLamborn @ileaderssummit @AmericasRT @NatashaSrdoc @JoelAnandUSA @supertalk America's Roundtable is co-hosted by Natasha Srdoc and Joel Anand Samy, co-founders of International Leaders Summit and the Jerusalem Leaders Summit.

Remembering Hawai'i State Senator (R, 1996--2016, East Honolulu) Sam Slom w/ Second Amendment Foundation Founder Alan Gottlieb (TRP Ep. 144)

Mr. Alan Gottlieb, Founder of the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) joins us today to pay tribute to the late Sam Slom, who was elected to the Hawai'i State Senate when TRP's producer and host (Dr. Lucas J. Mather, Ph.D.) lived in Hawai'i. In fact, Dr. Mather recalls passing Slom's campaign or senate office either in Hawai'i Kai or Kahala (I think the Kahala Mall) back in 1996 or 1997. Sam Slom served as Hawai'i State Senator from 1996 to 2016 in East Honolulu and was the only Republican in the State Senate. He was one of the founding Board Member of The Second Amendment Foundation in 1974. Mr. Sam Slom was one of the good Republicans defending the right to keep and bear arms and invididual liberty , and it's an honor to remember him here. Mr. Alan Gottlieb, Founder of The Second Amendment Foundation helps us do just that. We also discuss a bit about the kinds of cases that SAF is involved in, including some recent and famous ones. Recently, SAF won a preliminary injunction against California's arbitrary and capricious 10+ magazine confiscation scheme. Historicallly and famously, SAF won at the US Supreme Court in D.C. v. Heller (2008) and representing plaintiff Otis McDonald in McDonald v. Chicago (2010). In that latter case, the City of Chicago spent a million dollars to deprive this black man of his right to self defense absent police protection . If this sounds good to you, become a supporter of this work at https://saf.org/join-saf/ Enormous progress has been made ! The work continues. The first time TRP host Dr. Mather studied the Second Amendment academically was at Marine Corps Air Station, Kaneohe Bay in 1999 in a required State and Federal Government course for his undergraduate college, Wayland Baptist University Hawai'i. The professor for the course used a textbook that gave scant and misleading information about the history, text, scope, and meaning of the Second Amendment and the right to keep and bear arms. During that time, and a few years before when he saw "Jerry McGuire" (Tom Cruise movie) at Kahala Mall in East Honolulu (the swanky part of "town"), Mather was living downtown at the time, and noticed the office of Sam Slom, Republican elected to the Hawai'i State Senate. Mr. Slom was a Founding Board Member of The Second Amendment Foundation. He served as the only Republican in the Hawai'i State Senate from 1996 to 2016, twenty years ! On The Republican Professor Podcast, what a wonderful opportunity to remember Sam Slom, Mather's time studying the Second Amendment for the first time academically in Hawai'i, and the careful , persistent work of The Second Amendment Foundation. Mr. Alan Gottlieb, Founder of The Second Amendment Foundation, helped us do all that. SAF has won a recent preliminary injunction against the 10+ magazine limit here in California last week . More famously, SAF brought the challenge to DC's onerous registration/home disarmament scheme which they won at the US Supreme Court in 2008 called D.C. v. Heller (2008). We talk about his conversation with Antonin Scalia, what it was like growing up in New York City, why the arbitrary magazine limitation is unconstitutional, how knife laws also should be challenged as problematic under the Second Amendment, and my favorite, what it was like winning the Chicago case called Otis McDonald v. City of Chicago (2010) at the US Supreme Court (filed the day they won Heller). Enormous progress has been made since I saw Sam Slom's office in East Honolulu and spoke with him and his team in 1996. The textbooks no longer can afford to give the disfavored Second Amendment short shrift. That has everything to do with the hard , persistent work since then . Glad to be a part of it and to have had the opportunity to document it on The Republican Professor podcast. The work continues. The Republican Professor is a pro-Second-Amendment podcast. Therefore, welcome Mr. Alan Gottieb, founder of The Second Amendment Foundation. The Republican Professor is produced and hosted by Dr. Lucas J.

The Rich Show- Hour 1: 3:05pm- On Monday, CBS Mornings began their broadcast reflecting on a recent CBS News poll which showed 34% of respondents believed President Joe Biden would be unlikely to finish a second presidential term, if elected. The poll, which consisted of likely voters, showed Biden losing to Donald Trump in a hypothetical matchup—50% to 49%. 3:15pm- The U.S. military has established a hotline to help recover a missing Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II valued at $90 million. The stealth jet went missing after a pilot was forced to eject over North Carolina. 3:30pm- J.D.

Referring to Joe Biden, he explained: “they're taking advantage of a dumb president.” 4:05pm- Talk Radio Program Director, and Rich's former boss, Jared Hart joins The Rich Zeoli Show to discuss NM Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham's (D) executive order which was designed to temporarily suspend the right to carry firearms in the state—citing a gun violence epidemic and, subsequent, public health emergency. A federal judge temporarily halted the order. Many members of her own political party have called the measure unconstitutional. Due to the bipartisan backlash, Lujan Grisham recently changed the order, limiting its reach to state parks and playgrounds. 4:25pm- While appearing on Fox News with Maria Bartiromo, Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said he believes Hunter Biden will ultimately be subpoenaed. 4:30pm- While appearing on MSNBC, U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said she was “pleased” with the Biden Administration's economy. However, a recent CNN poll indicates that 75% of Americans believe the administration's policies have worsened economic conditions or made no difference. 4:40pm- In a recent Wall Street Journal editorial, Allysia Finley writes— “If DayQuil never seemed to unstuff your nose, now you know why: Its core decongesting ingredient, phenylephrine, doesn't work. That's what a Food and Drug Administration advisory committee unanimously concluded last week, 16 years after researchers first told the agency that evidence from the 1960s and '70s purportedly demonstrating the ingredient's efficacy was flawed.

Proposition HH Explained by Gov. Bill Owens and Chris Brown

On November 7, 2023 Colorado voters will approve or reject Proposition HH, Property Tax Changes and Revenue Change Measures. Proposition HH was referred to the ballot by the State Legislature following the passage of SB23-303. As the title suggests, Proposition HH is a complex proposal. It modifies or reduces taxation rates and exemptions for multiple types of property while at the same time increases taxes by allowing the state to retain more tax revenue. It would distribute excess revenue to school districts and other government entities without new stipulations. Proposition HH gives Coloradans a choice; trade some property tax relief, for a long-term increase in state taxes. Though any revenue forecast is uncertain, under normal economic conditions taxpayers would bear the full tax increases under Proposition HH even if the economy faced a sizeable downturn. While all Coloradoans benefit from TABOR refunds, only property owners would see direct benefits of the property tax decrease. Our full report can be found here. Host and Chairman Earl Wright welcomes former Governor of Colorado Bill Owens, and CSI Vice President of Policy Research Chris Brown to the podcast to discuss Proposition HH, its origins, its espoused goals, what the implications are for the future of property taxes, TABOR, and school funding, and much more. Every Coloradan will be impacted by the passage or defeat of Proposition HH, which makes this episode a must-listen.  Thank you for listening to Common Sense Digest.

Bill Owens served as the 40th Governor of Colorado from 1999-2007 and is a member of GreenbergTraurig's Government Law & Policy Practice Group. Prior to his service as Governor, Bill was Colorado State Treasurer where he managed a $5 billion investment portfolio. He also served in the State Senate and State House.

The Rich Zeoli Show- Hour 2: On Monday night, Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis announced former president Donald Trump has been indicted for racketeering for his alleged attempts to overturn the 2020 presidential election. 18 others were charged as well—including Rudy Giuliani, Mark Meadows, and Sidney Powell. Corinne Ramey and James Fanelli of The Wall Street Journal write, “If Trump wins the next presidential election, he could attempt to pardon himself in any federal case or steer the Justice Department to retreat from Smith's charges. In Georgia, he would lack the ability to wipe away a state conviction or prison term. Even if Trump were to seek a state pardon, he wouldn't be eligible to do so until after serving a sentence for any conviction. In Georgia, any such pardon would be determined by a state board, not the governor.” You can read their full article here: https://www.wsj.com/articles/georgia-case-presents-unique-challenges-for-trumpand-prosecutors-4dd6ee37 According to reports, Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis has proposed March 4th, 2024 as the start date for Donald Trump's trial in Georgia—one day before Super Tuesday when 15 states will vote in the Republican Presidential Primary.
