ACS June-18-2021: Kerri Kasem

As the show opens, Adam tells Bryan and Gina about the lost feeling he had after graduating high school, and his thoughts on some of the horrible music from that era. The guys also go through what the Billboard Top 10 was the years they graduated, and they go on to break down a NY Times article titled ‘The Boys In Their Summer Dresses’. Later, Adam recalls his grandmother’s wake, and an obnoxious old woman he regretted helping move. Before the break, the guys take calls for a round of Tales From The Cheap.

Adam is pleased to welcome Kerri Kasem in studio at the top of Part 2. The guys talk about the glory days of radio, and Kerri’s legendary father Casey Kasem’s appearance on Charlie’s Angels. Kerri then describes the painful legal battle that followed in the aftermath of her father’s death, as well as dealing with a sociopathic step-mother. They go on to discuss Kerri’s unique upbringing surrounded by celebrities, and coping with the loss of a parent. In the last part of the show, Gina reads news stories about The Jimmy Kimmel LA Bowl, Gavin Newsom’s recall, ‘Juneteenth’ officially becoming a federal holiday, Michael Jordan Nike’s going up for auction, a source code NFT, Rob Riggle’s crazy ex-wife, new Victoria’s Secret models, the new Cher biopic, and Nick Cannon’s second set of twins.

Lost in the Sauce: Immigration reform begins in earnest, erasing Trump policies

Welcome to Lost in the Sauce, keeping you caught up on political and legal news that often gets buried in distractions and theater… or a global health crisis.

##Immigration reform

Biden informed Congress on Thursday that he terminated the national emergency at the U.S.-Mexico border and removed all funding for the border wall. In his letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Biden called Trump’s emergency declaration “unwarranted” and promised “no more American taxpayer dollars will be diverted to construct a border wall. In total, Trump’s wall cost taxpayers $15 billion and resulted in only 40 new miles of steel barriers at the border; 412 miles simply replaced pre-existing fencing.

The Biden administration is slowly phasing in a new asylum process, ultimately allowing 25,000 asylum-seekers in the “Remain in Mexico” program to enter the country. Under the Trump-era policy, border officers sent about 70,000 people, including non-Mexican nationals and children, to Mexico to wait while their cases worked their way through U.S. immigration courts. Starting on February 19, three border crossing points will begin processing these asylum-seekers, allowing them to stay in the country as their claims are heard.

>Human Rights Watch: “Asylum seekers swept up in the MPP program face kidnapping, sexual assault, exploitation, lack of basic necessities, abuse and other dangers in Mexico, with no meaningful access to due process in the United States.”

California Elections 2018, 6-hour research findings

Short explanation: I researched what every candidate has actually done to know who to vote for because I hate voting blindly. I didn't want to go through the trouble, but I did it anyway and here are my findings.

Longer explanation: The ballots only tell you their name and the party they belong to, and that's never enough to know who to vote for. You'd have to do research on each candidate to know what the lesser of two or three evils is. Nobody wants to do that, but I did it anyway so that I know who to vote for and here are my findings on each person and issue. Almost nothing was straight forward, and there is never a perfect choice. But there are "least harmful" choices, and sometimes an "okay" one or two. Print this out or save it on your phone for when you vote, if you want.

Governor:

Gavin Newsom - He was one of the first to sign marriage licenses for same-sex couples as mayor, at a time when it was not well-accepted. That shows an ability to predict the immediate future and some courage. The worst dirt I could find on him is that a woman cheated on her husband with him. That's pretty low on the horror show for politicians nowadays. He is a believer in universal health coverage, like Medicare for everyone. He owned wine shops and numerous other small businesses with about 700 employees. He took the issue of health care very seriously as mayor of San Francisco, where an all-embracing health care system for city residents was put into place, and I would expect him to do so as governor. As mayor he reduced the welfare money handed to single homeless adults and used that to build shelters, services, and housing for the destitute in a "Care Not Cash" approach aiming to fix the problem of homeless spending their welfare money on drugs and give them help instead. He had no great successes, when aiming at the right things, but as governor he would have more power than he did as mayor. He’s willing to take politically unpopular positions if he feels it will result in better policy, that is rare nowadays. His ex-wife is dating Trump's eldest son, while he is publically disliked by Trump. He is for early childhood education, has rich experience of complex urban politics in economic scarcity. He is for the High Speed Rail Project, and against the death penalty.

[California] Do these statements from my boss count as sexual harassment? Is there anything I can do?

So, I work for a small nonprofit in California, with only a handful of employees and no HR department. There really is no hierarchy, just employees and our executive director, as well as a Board of Directors that control the direction of the organization.

The issue is with me and the executive director. I'm a recent graduate, fairly new to the workforce and not sure what my rights are in this regard. He frequently makes sexist or insulting statements, like "You hammer like a girl"; "I know you're eager to please, but we can't help that person"; "I can't see why your car would've been broken into here in town unless you have an angry ex-husband we don't know about"; "Women only vote for Gavin Newsom because he's handsome." Etc. He also belittles me when I bring up safety concerns. For example, I refused to drive through a deep mud puddle on a dirt forest road in my personal vehicle (which I have to drive for work), and he said snarkily, "What, are you afraid of getting your tires dirty?" When I tell him I don't want to drive on certain forest roads, like ones with 3 foot deep gullies, he tells me he's done it hundreds of times, even though our cars have different clearances.

Some things I think might not be legal, which were all said while we were alone together, usually on long car drives away from civilization:

-He told me he tells his wife exactly who to vote for, and he can do it for me too (Ugh, no thank you).

-He has made repeated comments about my appearance: while driving past inmates, he nudged me and said, "They're going to looove you." "You want to be careful traveling to [ ], because pretty girls are often the target of harassment from the natives."

-While my coworker was near her due date and taking leave, he asked me "When's this baby coming? I've been texting M every day and heard nothing." I said, "The baby is due Thursday, so we'll see." And he responded, "Obviously it's not an exact science. The baby isn't definitely 'due' any day, unless you only make love once a month." And then he smirked at me.

-Talking about parenting, I said I had a stay-at-home dad and it was great. He responded that he supported active parenting from fathers, then added "It takes two to make a baby, so if you're going to make love you better care for your children." Which I thought was an unnecessary way to phrase that sentiment.

At this point, I'm uncomfortable being alone with him, even though a huge part of my job involves hiking in the wild

What A Day: Judge and Jury by Priyanka Aribindi, Brian Beutler & Crooked Media (9/19/18)

"At least you got a nice boat out of the deal."—The president talking to an elderly hurricane victim about a yacht that washed into his yard

Monday or Else

Senate Republicans and conservative supporters of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh are trying to intimidate Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who says Kavanaugh assaulted her when the two were high school students, back into silence, so they can charge ahead with his confirmation.

Some Republicans would like to ignore Ford altogether and confirm Kavanaugh along party lines as soon as possible. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said, “I’ll listen to the lady, but we’re going to bring this to a close,” adding, "we run the committee—not her lawyer, not the Democrats.” (Charming.)

Others believe Republicans must at least appear interested in getting to the truth. The party has unified behind the gross “compromise” strategy of offering Ford a no-win, take-it-or-leave it proposition: Testify by Monday, or you’ll lose your one and only chance to share your story and have no one to blame but yourself.

Wavering Republicans, including Sens. Susan Collins (R-ME) and Jeff Flake (R-AZ), have embraced this pressure tactic:

  • “I hope that Dr. Ford will reconsider and testify before the Senate Judiciar
