"Thank you for tuning in to the Mark Blazers Show Josh cease In for Mark, he'll be back from vacation. Tomorrow. We got 6 10 W. T V and legal analyst and Columbus Defense Attorney Brad Coughlan studio Andre I wanted before I get to the doctor Fauci thing a couple people been on hold for a while. I just I want to wrap these last two calls up here. On da Karen. Thank you very much for calling in and hold nonce along. Hello, Karen. Oh, hey, how are you? Good, Karen, not what's on your mind. I wanted to get you in here since you've been waiting for so long. I appreciate it. I just want to let you know I've been emailing the governor about every other day. I think his plan for the lottery is ridiculous. Unfair so and I also called the Attorney general's office. Just, you know, get my two cents and worse. Um, I just think it's ridiculous and the federal tax those that we have all paid to be that much more do Justice Lee. If The object is to get people to take back to nation I when I'm out and about people if they even know about it, especially the young kids. Nine out of 10 usually say they don't know anything about it. So I tell everybody about it. And I am registered now because I did take the vaccine. But I suggested to the governor that he could put the money in the mobile units to go around to different places of employment. To see if people want to be vaccinated and social media and advertising in that kind of thing. I just think so. That's my two cents worth. Thank you and Brad. I love your Sunday show. I listen. Well, thank you very much. Thank you. Love it. Love it. That's all right. Can't appreciate that. Thank you, Um, you to have a family straight? I've got to my mom's in there to your mom and my mom and Karen. I love that. All right. And last call here, John. Thanks for calling into the mark. Places show John Whoa! Uh, I had a different take on the Vaccine watery system. The money can't be used for anything other than it was a portion of the $22 billion. It was adult allocated by the Department of Health and Human Services for vaccination related activities, and that would include advertising in any other. Activity that was designed to increase the number of people vaccinated. So even if it wasn't spent on this lottery, it couldn't really be spent on mitigating personal financial losses incurred by people because of the covert. Pandemic. You know, John, you make a good point, Brad. I mean, legally. I mean, maybe the governor's hands were tied and that in that sense I hadn't thought about that. I mean, the feds kind of convicted what you would do with the money. What had to get other sources of personal financial mitigation through your other, Uh, bills were significantly larger than this $22 billion elephants, you healthy human services. I'm not sure that the part of the Ohio Constitution that talks about the establishment of a lottery requiring legislative approval is Relevant because this Doesn't collect any funds from any of the people participating, and there wouldn't be any funds established for public education, right? Not sure that that is relevant. I think people want to focus on the $2 billion that was Wasted in Ohio on fraudulent or erroneous unemployment. I saw that the other day Brad that turned out to be to build $2 billion is what that turned out to be in the unlike this. That money was actually designed by the federal government to mitigate personal financial losses, so funds Re collected from that could be probably allocated or other personal financial losses. So forget about the five million. This is 400 times as much. Go for the $2 billion they wasted on this. John appreciate the call. I mean, you're not How you gonna get that $2 billion back? Brad, Where did it go? That zip. It went to people filing fraudulent unemployment claims Hub $2 billion. How does $2 billion just disappear? I don't know. I mean, leave it to government to have that happen, but I mean, the money has to hit an account. It's got it has to go someplace. Got to be a digital trail, right? I mean, everything is paid $2.1 billion in unemployment benefits. Then they have to go to an account. Why can't you find out what account those went to I have no idea what they're doing here that you know, I It's just another thing that Kim is out this pandemic. Okay, So who's in charge? Who are we paying to be in charge to make sure that bureau's job family services? Distributes the money correctly. Who's in charge of this stuff? I know you. You're asking questions that I don't have answers to man. I wish you're I know what you're doing, but it's just Yeah, it's it's frustrating. Speaking of frustrating Juicy Fauci on Good Morning America this morning. No, I was in court. Someone's going to prison today. He basically came out and said That the masks were political theater that why his mask wearing was political theater, he flip flopped again. Imagine that Dr Fauci flip flopping. Hey, was on Good Morning America, and they asked them, you know, basically, like, you know, why were you wearing the masks? Even though you were vaccinated and he goes, here's Here's what he told Georgia Snuffleupagus. He goes before the CDC made the recommendation change. I didn't want to look like I was giving mixed signals. But being a fully vaccinated person. The chances of my getting infected in an indoor setting is extremely low. So why was he pushing Tony and where? Even when the vaccine was out, Brad in February, hey, was talking about double masking. Remember that crap? The crazy double mask where two masks It just goes about how dumb are we and you can't keep track of any of the stuff you get Whiplash. If you try to keep track of this stuff, I hope it a minimum that our country has learned how to handle. Some somewhat of a pandemic because the real ones coming there was a what? What happens when a real one comes Are we going to have have they cried Wolf? Are we prepared? What do we learn? Moving forward? Forget about Fauci and the Mass. Right now. We need to stop focusing on blame game. We didn't need to figure out what do we do when? When the CCP or whoever. The evil doers are who are behind this? The next one. Women. We don't know exactly what have we learned and how we're gonna protect yourself moving forward, but see, that's why I'm focusing on Fauci and the Mass right here because what we learned from this is that these people are liars that they mislead people that that they say one thing when the truth is, I'm not this time for Fauci together. He's been there since 84 83 84 spender since Ronald Reagan. He's been his position forever. It's time for him to go with bright need to do. Ah, thinking from service, giving one of those JFK Courage Award moving, moving on and let's have it some cleaning house. The government needs a thorough Cleaning house or a hard reboot is weird. Seriously does reboot. Because nobody here is the problem. When you say what happens when there's the real pandemic comes. I think we're screwed, Brad because we're not going to believe anything that we're being told. Because we've been played so hard in this this whole thing that people don't have any not gonna have any faith in anything. They're here in the next time around, So that's why I bring it up. He basically admitted I was just doing it for for looks for political theater, and it's just going..

"Book. The degree to which the new york media propped him up was astonishing. I think he still has fairly decent ratings in the state i mean i wouldn't automatically say he couldn't get reelected assuming he's not in jail. Correct well you know they give emmys to actors and we know that he was a great actor. It was really fiction when you think about the book that he wrote all of that we now know. He profited to the tune of four million dollars on that book deal at the same time that he was shutting the state down at the same time that people were losing their lives and livelihoods all as a result of his lack of action in the beginning and then his heavy-handed dictatorial action as we went along and he lied about. You know people say well. What does it matter where somebody died while when you're fighting a new virus and you're trying to track the epidemiology of it and how it spreads contracts the virus and they die actually is a big part of that right a critical piece to this and we know that the reason he lied to me is very clear. He lied about the numbers. He doctored a report that was issued to the public and he did that so that he could get that four million dollar book deal so they can profit at a time. When new yorkers were again losing their lives in liley hoods that is old fashioned corruption assist stunning level of corruption. Just amazing so let me ask you one. Last question talked about how weird the democratic party is how challenging the structure of the government is right. Now i mean are you an optimist that new yorkers will automatically get their act together and take power back from the medical machine. I am you know as a republican new york and his a buffalo bills fan. I'm always an eternal optimist right so i have no other option but i am an optimist. I firmly believe that people at the end of the day regardless of your party. Your background most. Americans new yorkers there are always going to choose freedom over oppression. They're always gonna choose opportunity over a handout or the lack of opportunity and people want to be safe crime all these polls badly all the things that you see go on are things that i think. No matter what your party is you would be against. You would want to see a change so you know. The republican party of new york is going to have to make a case that we are the party of sanity fiscal sanity public safety sanity party. That wants to give every new yorker an opportunity and we're the party that's focused on changing those out migration patterns because that's the single biggest threat to the state of new york that we are continually losing capital both fiscal capital human capital using employees losing employers. And if we don't change that simple trend then new york state will go the way of the dodo bird so speak so. I am an optimist. But it's up to us as you know to carry that message and make sure that people understand. They do have a choice that this is not the only future that this is not the only option that there is an attractive option on the other side. Well we're going to put contact information both for you and for the state. Gop on our show page. And i think that people are fascinated. And i hope maybe one we are through the next legislative session. We might chat again because you are right in the middle of the most interesting examples of a corrupt radical incompetent and amazingly destructive machine. And i think you're reports are very very helpful. I really appreciate your taking the time to brief us and bring us up to speed. I thank you for having me right to hear from you.

Five g user experience report january twenty twenty one capable device required coverage not available in some areas recognized that the states facing a real crisis both in new york city. Where crime is out of control. I n where you may have had the worst mayor in the country but also statewide. Where between two thousand eighteen and nineteen some hundred and eighty thousand people left the state new york and california both contributing to a mass migration to states. That don't have income taxes for example. But you also because you've been a leader and you work knows what sort of things do you think should have been. We'd had a rational common-sense center right legislature with a budget the size. What would you be doing. Well when you're giving twelve point six billion dollars from the federal government now they said you can't use that quote unquote for tax cuts. But as you know money's fungible so okay that twelve point six billion in invest that in things that we had you know infrastructure mental health services you know use that to shore up our unemployment system which was total disaster early on the pandemic. If you need an unemployment check or to file for unemployment. you'd had better luck filing in a different state. I mean it was awful so taking that money investing that in the critical services that we expect government to provide the twenty first century. Then you could see what taxes cut taxes for our small business. Don't you spend a bunch of money on commercials. Saying new york's open for business actually cut taxes and lower regulations and guess what businesses will figure out that. You're open for business. Cut taxes for middle. Inca a for all new yorkers make new yorker more affordable place. Give the ten thousand two hundred dollar tax break to law by new yorkers who collected unemployment last year your unemployment last year the first ten to will match. What the federal government's doing you don't pay taxes on that. That would send a clear message that we actually care about working. Law by new yorkers here in this state but we didn't do that that wasn't even talked about correctly this run because the numbers are so weird. It's hard for an outsider. Like me to really believe it. That apparently your unemployment system last year spent more in the last year and the previous thirty years. How is that possible. There's probably several factors that contribute to that but the biggest one is new york closed businesses in shut the state down and kept it shut down for far longer than many other states did. If not every other state maybe save for california or michigan. And when you do that every restaurant every hospitality business. They laid people off. They said well. I don't know what i'm going to open up against only people off so you had just an influx of folks filing front employment people who never normally would file. We also made more people eligible for unemployment even in professions that normally. They're not eligible. Because we were saying. You can't go to work for me mr speaker. it was always real simple in this pandemic. There were two different types of states. There were states that said what is the least restrictive. We need to be while keeping people safe then. There were states that said what is the most restrictive we can be without completely crashing. The economy were the ladder. We tried to be as most restrictive as we could be while still allowing some level of commerce. Whatever the minimum was we should have been operating from the other mind set. That freedom is the goal that liberty and economic freedom and mobility. That should be the goal. What is the least restrictive. We need to be on folks while keeping people safe. We did not do that. And so when you do it the other way when you say you can't go to work you can't open your business will then. We have an obligation to provide funding. So that you're able to eat. And that was why the unemployment system which was so outdated. They didn't even have the technology to be able to let people file claims. The system kept crashing. We couldn't get a hold of somebody. It was awful and to add insult to injury we had calls in my office from constituents who were in democratic senate districts brooklyn syracuse. They were calling my office because they couldn't get a hold of their representatives. So these folks have been absent from this entire pandemic and your listeners should know this too. We've allowed governor cuomo. The majorities in both houses have allowed the governor to run the state by executive order. The entire time the democrats they have a supermajority and they've used it do nothing except watch. The governor continue to keep the state lockdown to make all these decisions by the stroke of his pen even still as he is engulfed in multiple investigations of sexual misconduct sexual assault sexual harassment. Lying to people about fifteen thousand folks dying in nursing homes and yet we continue to sit by. They are not interested in governing. they're interested in activism. These are all activists people who came from community activism who push these radical ideas they have no interest in being representative which you know something about. I know something about. They're interested in that. They are interested in being activists and getting paid to do it. That's it even with everything you just described as i understand it. The governor made a series of decisions which may have killed between nine and twelve thousand senior citizens. That's right and yet he got. What an.

We have a two hundred twelve billion dollar budget. That's larger than the state budgets of florida and texas combined and yet they have more population than we do in fact eventually they're going to have more new yorkers than we do so you have a very very big budget financing very destructive projects. I noticed that the fiscal policy institute estimated that under this new budget ninety two thousand illegal immigrants would get a fifteen thousand six hundred dollar payment because they'd lost income during the pandemic and another hundred ninety. Nine thousand would get thirty two hundred dollars in payment. And i do these. Tv shows and people say gosh you know. What's the root of illegal immigration. Why are they coming here. Try to say you know if new york is offering fifteen grand. You don't think people in salvador configured this out it's almost like they want to maximize the attractiveness of new york state for people who are here illegally. Yes i think when they look at what's happening at the border they want those folks to come to new york specifically once they're here in new york city. This is a transfer of natalie wealth or redistribution. But it's a transfer of demographics. You know they want people like my parents or my constituents who moved to florida or tennessee or north carolina or taxes whether it's for jobs or in their retirement years good riddance and we'll replace you folks el salvador nicaragua or wherever and that is viewed. I guess as a net positive whether it's just politics or there's some larger rationale behind that but basically what you're doing in a lot of cases. Let's just be honest. You're incentivizing folks. Who are coming here. Who are going to need more welfare. They're going to need more public tax dollars. That's why even though is we lose. Population almost forty percent of new yorkers are on some sort of public assistance. That's not a sustainable model. You know that as well as anybody and yet we continue to double down on policies that will grow. That percentage not shrink. I noticed in this new fund that they put in the budget this year. They're actually going to provide something like four times as much money to an illegal immigrant as was provided for property tax relief and more than four hundred times was allocated for life saving treatment for those receiving mental health services and crucial veterans. I don't understand why there is an almost a rebellion underway by normal people watching their taxes. Go up and the money being transferred around people who aren't even here legally yet while the tell you in certain parts of the state there certainly are. I can tell you that the republican party. We just had a meeting of almost every county chair here in albany were multiple handed. Its came before these chairs to talk about running for statewide office and here. We are almost still two years away from the next election so there is. I think a feeling that this is going way too far but i don't know if it's just people are tuning out things i don't know if it's the fatigue from the pandemic i don't know if it's because a lot of people are just saying i'm leaving. I'm just giving up. But there needs to be a pushback from the people who live in the state. You are a law-abiding tax-paying individual whether you own a business or not whether you are a veteran or not. Whether you're the police officer when you look at the policies coming out of albany. The reason people are leaving is not because of the weather. It's because of the policies coming out of the state. That's what's driving people to other states. It's not a coincidence. It's a direct result of those policies. This budget doubles down on those policies. To your point all you have to do is look at the priorities. In this budget the priority was to increase taxes. And where's that money going to go. Lot of folks will say well. I'm not a billionaire. Not the one paying a lot of these taxes. They're gonna be millionaires and billionaires okay. They're going to turn it around and spend it on people who are here who are not. Us citizens going to spend it to help. Criminals and invest more in programs to the less people are in jail. They're gonna use it to reimagine police forces. I mean we have reimagining board in the city of ethica. This is really a gis. I know it's not cooked. The budget but it is a task force that the governor mandated to reimagine the police department in the city of ithaca the city that the gut funded their police department and on this board. They appointed a new york city. Convicted cop killer. What repeat that. So.

"Voting democrat but people who are leaving aren't the folks that they want and i think they're banking on at some point these folks either having state voting rights. Or maybe getting amnesty. And they'll have this swath of voters you know sort of at the ready and this is all about cemented ng control that only new york city but around the state and really. What's happening to me in your state. Mr speaker is a crime. I mean when you think about we're letting out violent offenders no bail and we're talking about further restrictions to disarm the law abiding populace who would defend themselves from these folks. You know we're talking about unemployment. The federal government recently granted the first ten thousand two hundred but somebody got unemployment benefits. Last year would not be considered taxable income federal taxes. The state of new york did not go along with that. We don't want to miss out on that taxable income. Obviously so for this party that supposedly be a party of the working person of the middle class or working class. Only if you're not a citizen of the country apparently if you're a working class person if you own a gun if you care about hunting and your second amendment rights if you're trying to scrape a living here is a business person even if you're a single mother or parent of a family. There's really very little for you in this budget. So it's almost like if you do everything right to grow a better state. The legislature runs over you. And if you're doing nothing right the create a better state. The politicians are transferring. Money to you know question. This is wealth redistribution in its purest form. And is that because the democratic party new yorkers just now that far to the left yes so. we're i represent. My district is far more geographically but culturally politically far more similar to ohio or pennsylvania or parts of the midwest but most of the democratic party in new york state and those in elected office are from new york city and the new york city suburbs. And it's hard to explain whether to my constituents or your listeners. Just how far left. The new york city democratic party has gone. But i guess all you have to do is look at someone like alexandria. Ocasio cortez right. She comes out of the new york city queens bronx democratic party the dsa and the socialist down there we have multiple members now in the senate who have called for defunding the new york city police department not reimagining it. Defunding it you know. They wanted seven billion in new taxes. They were unhappy with four point. three billion. that didn't go far enough. I think the afc election the bernie sanders presidential election.

"But what the bill I introduced does is it says Hey, if New York wants to give $2.1 billion with a B, that was, that's what they're doing.

I live in the second highest highest property tax county in the entire country, Senator and I'm not complaining. It's It's part of my work. My work keeps me here has kept me here. I'm trying to fix that. And But I will say this. I don't believe states like Montana, Florida, Texas, Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee, the Carolinas. They shouldn't be subsidizing New Yorkers that elect the most fiscally irresponsible senators, uh, fiscally responsible. State Senators, Assembly people governors. It's just not fair, nor should I be able to deduct my state local income taxes, and it's not a benefit in a low tax state like yours. Well, that's exactly right. What we're doing here is we're incentivizing reckless. Let's go behavior in states like New York, Illinois, California by allowing it to deduct high state tax and property taxes from the federal tax. That means that states like Montana, slow to others and lower tax rates. Our baby subsidizing liberal states. I think our founding fathers would like to see policies that create competition in terms of how we can reduce government in states not increase it. When you're allowed to deduct the state and local taxes from your federal tax. What we're basically doing is low tax states are subsidizing high tax states. Quick break.

And we're talking about people who don't even go to hospitals don't go to dentists don't go To city and state agencies to seek support because there's fear of deportation there's fear of arrest and also there's barriers to access into navigate Healthcare systems in any sort of social service system so for them to put their bodies on the line like that was a huge sacrifice in a big risk and the majority of the hunger were women in working mothers. I'm thinking about one person in particular media who has five kids several grandchildren. She's a single mother. One of our children has a disability and she although hadn't eaten for weeks still found the strength to pick up garbage in washington square park every day so she could send cash home to her family. And i think that although we celebrate this victory it costs us a lot. It costs lives every single action. We did we. We named and honored the lost family members community members colleagues to cove it. We centered our cultural traditions. We centered are. We centered our joy in the struggle. But there's still a lot of grief Yeah that's pretty incredible in terms of the power of organizing every gaddi. Throw that in every little grain of sand of having accumulated leads to something like this. And you know who you're we may be. Seeing the beginning of actually a wave of undocumented people and allies activists taking back their power and actually yes putting their bodies on the line like the load is worth says using People power to move these issues. Undocumented workers in new jersey have launched their own hunger-strike less than twenty four hours. After this past in new york. And i think back to a year ago you know the undocumented workers were still on the trains from the bronx intimate hatton. You've been up here in massachusetts. That's where did the chelsea massachusetts story for latino. Usc that was the same thing. It was everywhere. Exactly so not only. Are they working continuously often in high risk but they are paying taxes right with. They didn't get any stimulus. Then fact there's punishment we have to value their lives. This was released. Something that to me is. I think not only huge and historic but i think again could have a national emperor and you know we talk a lot about people's humanity right so a lot of people are talking about these undocumented individuals they should be valued not just because they were the essential workers who were on does not ways and keeping new york functioning but also because their people their new yorkers and their lives matter and they are part of our communities and they have families right here who are also new yorkers. Let's go back to the hill s elise from make the road new york. It took the federal government months to put together a small check. That barely covered anybody's bills but in this campaign we were determined not to make that mistake so our narrative in our push in our campaign centered the fact that undocumented immigrants pay taxes however they were the first to have to go to work during the pandemic they were the last ones to receive any sort of relief or protections from fiction moratoriums or rent relief programs. They were completely excluded. What we called for was direct cash. Assistance monuments to essential workers. Don't save lives. Cash in their pockets does and we knew this was bowled. We also know it's not enough. We've set the precedent but it's on everybody to act on what they've just seen. Julio the thought of some people not everybody's is going to be able to. But it's a maximum fifteen thousand six hundred dollars. I believe the thought of what a family could do with that. Oh the us. I mean my husband said he too crazy. I anticipate cut. Do you really think undocumented people are going to go in present themselves right now because there is fear. Now there's a whole other conversation about. How do we engage. How do we create a sense of trust with people in new york have been picked up by taking by ice but what are way to end the week. Who so. I wanted to call attention to another story about organizing and this came out of. Wd t in detroit that a group of young activists from detroit and dearborn are leading hunger strike in washington dc protesting the blockade of yemen and urging change in us policy toward saudi arabia. And by the way they are on day twelve of their hunger strike. You know you talk about the lotus and people power. You're seeing these pockets. That's not going away under a biden harris administration and it didn't go away during the obama biden administration. So i think you're still seen people saying certain issues are deeply personal and matter and we need to keep showing up and organizing and if it means risking our health you're literally putting their lives on the line and we've been putting our lives on the line in this country for the entire past year so like i said power to the young people. I say it all the time. The future democracy in this country is sitting on your shoulders. And if you feel the pressure on your shoulders. That's because i'm putting it right there. But i'm telling you young people activists people who love democracy participating. I'm here for it. And i'm also terrified. I'm getting my second shot on sunday and wish me you'll be fine. Okay thank you have a good one. Everybody love.
