Sens. Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand Call for New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to Resign
"In regards to sexual harassment story we're dealing with essentially unethical but not illegal behavior. But that's burying of the lead because in this case is vastly more important to be or to talk about the doctoring of official figures that he had nursing home deaths from the justice, part men, officials, New York legislators and, more importantly, the general public. You're listening to Saturday night on the circle. I'm your humble host Ethan Hampshire producer Donnie on the board. Of course, I'm referring to the ongoing scandal of Governor Cuomo. And it appears things are just getting worse. Republicans finally waking up to the fact that they understood up and do something, even though they're not in a position of power in the state of New York in the New York State Assembly On Monday, they announced an impeachment resolution against Governor Cuomo, saying they believe Democratic governor has lost credibility and trust and has an inability. The lead of the state. Of New York. This is amid his sexual harassment allegations which have been levied against him. Investigators are investigations already underway into the handling of his Corona virus pandemic. State Assembly Minority Leader Will bar play announced Republicans won't be able to force the vote or wouldn't be able to force the vote but would keep pounding the issue. They received a quick payoff because Thursday the situation there already changed now. Currently the investigation not far yet far along and focused on that the top members of Cuomo's coronavirus task force, the Albany Times Union, reported, which cited to source with direct knowledge of the matter. Neither Cuomo or administration officials have yet at this point I've been accused of wrongdoing when it comes to either of the matters now. Thursday, Majority of state legislators called for his right Resignation, including Democrats. The Democrats launched an impeachment impeachment investigation, and police in the state capital say they stood ready for an investigate to investigate a groping allegation. At least 100 21, members of the State Assembly and Senate's have said publicly they believe Cuomo should quit office. Now, according to Italia, taken by The Associated Press count includes 65 Democrats and 56 Republicans. Which is an astounded figure, Democrat Assemblywoman Alan Gunther said. All of us are extremely disappointed. I think there's no room in the world right now, for that kind of behavior. He should have known better now, one of the aspects of this story that I think few people have mentioned is that that this is Ah. This is a culture of the Andrew Cuomo administration. This is a news. This isn't a surprise. People who have been associate ID with Andrew Cuomo have been well familiar with this behavior. Now AIDS air, starting to speak about the culture in the office, which required Cuomo to groom and hire attractive young women to be in his employ, which is a clear abuse of the power dynamic when you're specifically seeking that type of situation Mission and setting that type of situation up. It gets better because now Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and majority of House Democrats from New York, including representatives Jerry Nadler and exact Alexandria Cossio Cortez joined the chorus on Friday, calling for the governor to resign. Nadler, the powerful chair of the House Judiciary Committee, said that Latino James investigation into the harassment allegations against the governor should Continue, but there's a difference between formal investigations that may end up in charge is any question of confidence in our political leadership of Governor Cuomo has lost the confidence of the people of New York and Governor Cuomo must resign and that was coming from Jerry Nadler. So, yes, even Democrats now joining the chorus of calls For Governor Cuomo to resign, and it's amazing how the course of one individual can be completely changed in just a year, because you know, a year ago, this guy was being featured prominently on National News by July, Anthony Fauci said that New York was the model of pandemic response. Hey, want a primetime Emmy and then now the world Is collapsing around Andrew Cuomo. And it's just unfortunate that the central focus is being centered around the sexual harassment allegations and not the nursing home death cover up because as far as anyone is concerned, like I said, the outside of the segment is far as we know. Right now. The sexual harassment allegations are not criminal in nature, they are merely unquestionably unethical. But that is wholly different and magnitude from the nursing home death from the causing of individuals to lose members of their family. Certainly that represents a Maura significant and agree Jin's egregious breach of trust from the New York governor. Pretty interesting stuff. Also representatives an idea of the last quest. Who served in Congress since 1993 said there's only one way that the governor can truly restore accountability in confidence to his office. He must resign. Interesting stuff. You're listening to
"alexandria cossio cortez" Discussed on KQED Radio
"Cossio Cortez and Senator Elizabeth Warren joined us for the annual New Yorker festival. It was for reasons you know only too well. A virtual festival. And with the 2020 election just weeks away, the state of American democracy was and is on everybody's mind. Here's Elizabeth Warren and Alexandria Cossio Cortez, speaking with Andrew Maran's of The New Yorker. I'm just going to get right to it. This isn't you know, a time for small talk. This is a pretty perilous moment in our history, so I think we should just start start right with it. We obviously have a health crisis and economic crisis as a result of that a reckoning over racial justice in this country. And on top of all that we have Ah, ah Democratic legitimacy crisis when we've come this far in terms of Breaking of norms and seeing all these abnormal signs that our democracy is in peril and that this administration seems tohave authoritarianism, pulses. How What are you looking for? As Maura red flags as we move toward this election. What are you looking for? In the coming weeks That will tell you that we have really crossed an irreversible line. And what can you both do as members of Congress to try to safeguard what we have left? Of our democracy. I guess Senator, we can start with you on this. Well, I I don't think it's about the red lines in the next 24 days. How long have we got now? We know that Donald Trump's gonna do every single thing possible to steal this election toe hang on to power to deny its legitimacy. There's not any surprise coming. In that sense. There may be particular details, but come on, we we know this man By now. He has told us who he is. So for me, it's about what are we doing about it and doing about it now and that is we got to get people out to vote. Our big chance. Here is November, 3rd. We can't afford to be Donald Trump. By a little bit. We got to beat Donald Trump by a huge amount, and that's how we reassert the strength of democracy. Alex. What do you think? Yeah, I completely agree. I'm not looking for any red flags because he's already thrown out 21 of the most extremely troubling things that the president has done and recently is really signaling that he will not Clearly committed to a peaceful transition of power. And so the thing that we have to do our first line of defense is absolutely toe overwhelmed at the poles and toe overwhelmed at the polls in every way possible toe overwhelming early voting early in person voting mail in voting and overwhelming on day of election results. Right. And so is there like a break glass in case of emergency plan if you start to see a state of emergency and called in a swing state and people getting shut out from polling places or some massive irregularity. What are you going to do? Do you go to the well of the Senate and have a sit in like, what is your plan? And also what is our plan as citizens? Do we show up somewhere in March? Do we start stockpiling food? Like what do we start doing? Well, I think one of the things that's extremely important is that we have to remember that in our democracy and yes, I'm going to use the word democracy. Contrary to Senator Mike Lee We? The people have power. We always have power, and I think it's extremely important that people be ready for mass civil demonstration. Nonviolent, of course, but we have to make sure that we have a demonstration on the scale of the women's march in 2017 even larger than that, or on the scale of Of everything that we saw this year. There need to be immediate political, popular and social consequences for leadership that refuses to adhere to the rule of law. And we've seen this administration scale back on very disturbing developments due to public backlash and due to ah, popular support or lack of or lack thereof, And so I do think it's still important for people to understand. That if Donald Trump refuses to acknowledge the results of this election on DH that we exercise our First Amendment rights and then for us is elected leaders has elected officials depending on those developments. There are there are provision in the Constitution and making sure that whether we address is in the house or that we also turnout for critical house seats that we win over state delegations. We make sure that we have all the pieces in play for every eventuality. Let's say Joe Biden gets in cleanly peacefully. Let's say Democrats take the house. Fine Administration, Democratic House and a Democratic Senate. Right. So that's that's the hypothetical in that world. You now hear people talking in this especially this post RBG moment. You hear people talking about a whole wish list of stuff. You hear people saying expanding the court's term limits for justices. Getting rid of the filibuster. National popular vote Reinstating the Voting Rights Act statehood for DC Puerto Rico, maybe even Guam. It is anything on this list? Something that you're not Down with are you? Are you okay with all those things and what do you prioritise and how do you get there under abiding administration and a democratic Congress? Well, first right off the boat. I will say that I am not supportive of blankets, Statehood for Puerto Rico. I actually introduced a bill with media Velasquez for a self determination process on DH, one that is is binding just and not influenced by outside interests. And the issue of D C. Statehood and Rico statehood are two very, very different issues. Rhetorical was a colony and is a colony and it's a spoil of war and the United States. Has been imperial force in that colonial dynamic. And so the way we approach colonized entities is a process of self determination and decolonization D C. Statehood is an issue of just criminal disenfranchisement. And so that's one distinction that that that I would put in there. Joe Biden is a fan of Puerto Rico statehood, and that's when small difference will. It's a big difference for Ricans..
Markey fends off Kennedy in Massachusetts Senate primary that divided Democrats
"Joe Kennedy. The third loses Democratic Primary Challenge of Massachusetts Senator Edward Markey. By Steve Leblanc for the Associated Press in Boston. US, Senator Edward Markey of Massachusetts defeated. US Representative Joe Kennedy. The third in Tuesday's hard-fought Democratic primary harnessing support from progressive leaders to overcome a challenge from a younger rival. WHO's a member of America's most famous political family. It was the first time. A Kennedy has lost a race for Congress in Massachusetts Marquis. Appeal to voters in the deeply democratic state by positioning himself as aligned with the liberal wing of the party he teamed up with a leading Progressive New York representative Alexandria Cossio. Cortez on the green new deal climate change initiative, and at one point labeled Kennedy quote a progressive in name only that helped Marquis overcome the enduring power of the Kennedy name in Massachusetts. The thirty nine year old congressman sought to cast the seventy four year old marquis as someone out of touch after spending decades in Congress I in the House before moving to the Senate Kennedy said Tuesday night that the results aren't the ones he'd hoped for but pledged to work for Markey's reelection. The senator is a good man. You never heard me say, otherwise Kennedy told supporters at an outdoor rally. Kennedy also suggested that the movement of supporters the campaign pulled together would continue past the current election. We may have lost the final vote count tonight but we built a coalition that will endure. He said I would do this again with all of you in a heartbeat. In, the waning weeks of the campaign Kennedy leaned into his family's long political legacy in Massachusetts his pedigree includes former president John F. Kennedy, former US senator, and US Attorney General Robert F Kennedy, his grandfather, and former US senator Edward Kennedy who held a Senate seat in Massachusetts for nearly half a century until his death in two thousand, nine Marquis countered by leaning into. His own family story growing up in the working class city of Maldon with a father who drove a truck for the Hood Milk Company in one campaign video marquis also paraphrased a famous JFK quote saying we asked what we could do for our country we went out we did it with all due respect. It's time to start asking what your country can do for you. Marquis also found himself on the defensive at times during the campaign with Kennedy. Repeatedly trying to portray him as having a tin ear to Racial Equity Concerns Kennedy Faulted Marquis for his initial opposition to the effort to desegregate the Boston public schools beginning in the nineteen seventies marquis countered by noting that he changed his views on the contentious issue that tour at the fabric of the city he also said, he supported the creation in one thousand. Nine hundred seventy, three of a state Senate seat aimed at helping elect a black senator to the Massachusetts Legislature Kennedy also repeatedly pointed to the father of Dan Roy Dj Henry a young black man from Massachusetts killed by police ten years ago. Henry's father has criticized Marquis saying he failed to help the family seek justice markey said he has apologized to the Henry family and signed a letter seeking a Federal Justice Department investigation into the killing. Marquee also wasn't shy about talking about the Kennedy. Family at one point pressing Kennedy to tell his father former U s representative, Joe Kennedy. The second to stop supporting a Political Action Committee that was running ads against Marquis I'm sure your father is watching right now markey said tell your father right now the you don't want money to go into a super PAC that runs negative ads Kennedy said he had no idea if his father was helping fund the pack late in the race Kennedy also. Landed a major endorsement when Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi formerly backed his candidacy while Marquis who served with Pelosi in the house for decades congratulated Kennedy Pelosi's decision angered some of Markey's younger Progressive Supporters Marquee had earlier won the endorsement of Ocasio Cortez and fellow Massachusetts Democratic US senator. Elizabeth. Warren Ed. Markey wasn't afraid. He offered his expertise and partnership. He wasn't scared of big policy and didn't use kid gloves. It's great to watch him overcome the odds and wind tonight Oh Cossio Cortez tweeted Tuesday night. The Corona virus ended the way both candidates could reach out to voters severely limiting more traditional means of electioneering like knocking on doors, shaking hands or. Big rallies instead, the campaigns were largely waged on line with virtual rallies, virtual endorsements, virtual fundraisers, and virtual roundtable events to discuss issues. Eventually, as Massachusetts began to suppress the virus and emerge from a near lockdown, the candidates began to take their campaigns on the road with appropriate social distancing rules and face masks in tow. The showdown drew criticism from some Democrats nationally who feared it would siphon time and money away from the primary goals of defeating President, Donald Trump and winning back control of the Senate. It also wasn't cheap with both Kennedy and Markey raising millions to pay for campaign staff television, and digital ads and old school campaign flyers. Marking now faces a general election contest where he's considered a strong favourite in a district that has historically elected Democrats hill face the winner of the Republican Primary Kevin O'Connor in November.

"A New York. City has experienced a surge in violent crime in recent weeks, including a two hundred percent increase in shootings between June, fifteenth and July second of this year, a compared the same time in two thousand and nineteen over the July fourth holiday weekend, sixty four people were shot. Eleven died when we're gunshot wounds and the last four weeks New York. City has seen an increase in shootings. Compared to last year, there was one especially. especially heartbreaking shooting on video of a father gunned down in broad daylight while walking hand in hand the six year old daughter, the Bronx, but it isn't just gun violence troubling the big apple in the past two weeks, there was a grisly knife attack in the subway and a stabbing in Brooklyn, following the George Floyd protest against police brutality. You were police department disbanded. It's plain clothes unit, which has been involved in a disproportionate number of fatal officer involved shootings last week at NYPD captured a video, mocking the new overly cautious policing tactics being implemented in New York City a following the nationwide protests against police brutality in. In early June New York City Mayor Bill Blogs, you announced. He's moving resources from the NYPD to youth and social services as part of our city's budget. Mayor de Blasio proposes cutting nearly one billion dollars, and then PD are presentative. Alexandria Cossio Cortez scoffed at the proposal calling it a disingenuous illusion thing. defunding police means defunding police on Thursday during virtual townhall because you cortes talked about the uptick crime in new. York City, pointing out constant new NYPD hasn't happened yet, and there's still an increase in crime, a proposed theories for the crimewave and asked do we think has to do with the fact that there's record unemployment. Unemployment, in the United States right now as she continue the fact that people are at a level of economic desperation, we have not seen since the great recession and the Democratic Socialists hypothesize the increase in York City. Violence could stem from Renton demands and people shoplifting bread. Maybe this has to do with the fact that people aren't paying their rent and are scared to pay the rent. She said, and so they go out, and they need to feed their child, and they don't have money, so you maybe have to. They're putting the position. They feel like they either need to shoplift some bread or go hungry that nights. Okay so let's break this down Carrie. Did she offer any information? Suggesting the shoplifting of bread is on the rise. No no, she did not. Offer any information or proof that people are being evicted McCain pay their rent now. Okay so I've got Dr Carson on today. He the Hudsucker secretary as you know, and he's the one who talks about foreclosures and Ranson evictions and stuff like that, and of course as you know because you're a smart news person of fifty, some odd years old. You know that there had been abatements for people paying rent or getting addicted or getting foreclosed on right. They literally can't be evicted, or it'd be foreclosed on under the rules. Put Out by Hud Housing Urban Development. Run by Secretary Ben. Carson, so we don't have any proof because it isn't happening. People are being shot and killed in the streets of New York. It's. It's not over buying bread or not for stealing bread, but there's no proof of anybody shoplifting more bread in new. York, so that's unverified and probably untrue, and there's certainly no proof of people being evicted or being foreclosed on because there are rules in place protecting people right now, but I guess the broader question along with why the beep is this person in Congress? Has To be wife. She saying it. Because it's also ally that there has been no defunding or disbanding a police in new. York 'cause you just said if the the crime unit has been disbanded. The Crime Unit that actually was on top of the most violent crimes, and stopping is no longer there, therefore the violent criminals who are not stealing bread. Are Out there, killing each other and killing innocent people, so your thoughts on this. Would you hear this this dolt this? Dope. AFC saying such stupid things what goes through your mind

How B.C.'s Indigenous communities are facing climate change, and creating solutions
"The signs of climate change are everywhere. Lighter snowpacks others rising water levels and the conversations around climate are shifting just two years ago the phrase. The green new deal was just a bullet point in political platform since then it's expanded into a worldwide phenomenon and a solution. Some feel will slow down. The human caused portion of climate change. Jillian brave noise cat is been there. Every step of the way he worked with elected officials to help draft the green new deal resolution. Julian is a member of the Canam Lake Ban to cast skin in British Columbia. Hi Julian welcome back to the show. Thanks so much for having me so first of all. What is the green new deal so the green new deal began as a resolution introduced by representative Alexandria costs? He'll Cortez of New York and Senator Ed Markey of Massachusetts. It's a resolution with big ambitions to take on the dual crises of inequality and climate change but the discourse here because America's media market political scene often spills over into Canada and Europe and elsewhere has also been picked up by sort of more left leaning forces in other countries so the New Democratic Party. The Social Democratic Party in in Canada picked up the green new deal as part of their platform and has been talking about it in the Canadian context as well and use climate activists who are also sort of affiliated with the left wing and Canada have also been talking about potentially a a green new deal for Canada. What the green new deal is in. That is big jobs infrastructure investment. Sort of package so your listeners might be familiar with sort of carbon price and tax approach. That has been led by the liberal government in Canada and the distinction between that approach and the green new deal is that rather than sort of forcing consumers and businesses to have a off where they have to pay higher prices for gasoline. And things like that to sort of benefit the environment and to lower emissions. The green new deal says that we should invest in decarbonising a whole set of industries and sectors in a way that will create jobs and promote a more fair and equitable economy. Why is this important for indigenous people in Canada so I think that first nations and indigenous people in both the United States and Canada have played an outsized role in the fight for environmental justice over the last ten twenty years? Maybe even further back. If you look at the history of resistance to pipelines and Forestry and mining you know first nations have often been some of the loudest voices you know. Putting their very bodies on the line in front of pipelines and projects. That are going to damage the environment and public health. So I I would say that. A lot of the grassroots energy of the green new deal comes from first nations for example representative Alexandria. Cossio Cortez the politician who led the charge for green new deal here in the United States actually got started as a volunteer organizer. Supporting the move. Minute Standing Rock So I would say that. The indigenous movement both in the United States and Canada really has played a significant underlying role. That people haven't fully appreciated in producing the green new deal. I think the questions that first nations sovereignty and rights raise for the green new deal or not just the fact that communities are disproportionately harmed and polluted by the fossil fuel industry in particular and other extractive industries more generally but also you know what it might look like to in both the federal systems of Canada and the United States to incorporate first nations governments as equal partners in the federal system. That is that is pushing for action on climate change. What would it look like for first nations governments in in Canada and the United States to lead a transition to clean energy to create a lot of the jobs in their communities to be empowered as environmental stewards in protectors? And I think the examples that we should be looking to are things. Like the Guardian Watchmen program in the great bear rainforest. Other parts of Canada where first nations twenty thirty years ago stood up against logging and forestry and now today employ some of their own members as environmental stewards and protectors making sure that some of the most important carbon sinks in North America remain protected and can help us in the fight against climate change. So I think it's those kinds of things that we should be thinking about and then abroad or sort of intellectual and philosophical sense. I think that climate change really is an existential threat for humans and human societies around the world and of course you know first nations you know what it means to live. Through an apocalypse we lived through the apocalypse of of colonization. We lived through the apocalypse of our children being taken away to residential schools Canada and boarding schools in the United States and in a broader sense of human sort of confronting this enormous tragic upheaval to our societies. I think that you know indigenous people in Canada and and more generally actually have perspectives and experiences to lend to those set of
Sen. Richard Burr Faces Lawsuit Over Timing Of Stock Sale
"Water members of Congress going to do about stock trading by themselves. Revelations about Senator Richard. Burr raised this question. Our colleague Tim. Mack revealed that Senator Burr gave dire warnings about the pandemic to an exclusive group. A month ago that was a time when the president was downplaying the threat then propublica revealed that Burr also sold a lot of stock before the market crashed. Npr's Tim Mack still on this story. Tim Good Morning. Hey Good morning should lawmakers be trading in stocks at all well some lawmakers believe that they should be allowed to do that at all at lawmakers in the House of introduced what they call the band conflicted trading act. Now that's a bill. I championed by Jeff Merkley of Oregon in the Senate. It would prohibit lawmakers from trading individual stocks so along with Congressman Joanna Goose and Congresswoman Alexandria. Cossio Cortez Congressman Raja Krishna. More `they is one of the lead sponsors of the legislation. I think it's time that the public knows that their members of Congress are not profiteering. Off of you know information. They gained through their public service. It's not fair and it's not right. Democrats are the initial co-sponsors to the legislation but given the bipartisan outrage at Burr's actions they have some hope that Republicans will join them and to be clear this is telling lawmakers you can still have money. You can still try. A Mutual Fund Index Fund not individual stocks. Could PROFIT OFF OF INSIDE INFORMATION? Now this is not going to apply to Senator Booker if it becomes law. Because he's done what he's done but he's being sued isn't it? That's right Allan Allan Jacobsen of California was a shareholder in Wyndham hotels and resorts one of the stocks that bursts sold. And he's alleging that Senator Burr exploited information available to him as a senator for personal gain. Thomas O'Brien is lawyer representing Jacobson. And he said that they are trying to take the lead holding burr accountable. Back there. We're not waiting. For the Federal Government Regulatory Agencies. Were moving forward to remedy the wrong. With senator straight against are not I should note. I reset senator. Burs office for comment for the story but received no response Previously. He said that he relied only on public news stories to make his decision to dump stocks. He's also asked the Senate ethics committee to open an investigation into his own. Actions could face other scrutiny. Well the big question is whether the Justice Department and or the Securities and Exchange Commission will open up an investigation based on the facts. We already know in the public domain so to answer that I tried to ask around to people who had some experience in this manner. I spoke to Katie Goldstein. Who used to hold who used to lead these sorts of investigations in the US Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York? When I first read the allegations the thought that crossed my mind was it seems likely to me that there will be a grand jury investigation of this conduct. The circumstances were such that. I thought it was likely that. Us Attorneys Office. Perhaps the southern district of New York would open an investigation. So that's her view and her estimation but to be clear there's no evidence to the actual investigation has started. I also reached out to the Justice Department and the SEC. And they had no comment so a couple of things going on people saying there. Oughta be a law and also maybe impressions about whether Burr broke an existing law. Tim thanks so
Facebook Revises Rules On Political Advertising
"Facebook announced what it will and will not change as the twenty twenty election arrives. The social media giant says it will let users choose to see fewer political Ads so how does that compare to what its critics wanted Washington Post policy reporter. Tony Romm is with us once again. Good Morning Good Morning. Thanks for coming by. Let's listen to mark Mark Zuckerberg of facebook in an exchange with Representative Alexandria Cossio. Cortez your last year. Let's listen so you won't take down lies or you will take online so I think it's pretty simple. Yes or no hungry woman in Montauk not spin I'm talking about actual yes to democracy. I believe that people should be able to see for themselves. What politicians that they may or may not vote for? You won't take out or for themselves. I read that to mean facebook generally is not going to be taking sitting down lies. That was then this is now. Is that still the policy. It is still the policy. FACEBOOK is not going to take down falsehoods with some limited exceptions. You can't for instance tell people the wrong election date even enrolling out some of these big changes yesterday trying to tighten the political advertising ecosystem ahead of the twenty twenty election sucker. Brook is sticking to this notion that facebook should not serve as the arbiter of truth. It shouldn't be the thing that gets in the way of what a politician is trying to say to the voters taking the position position. That even the politician lying something you might like to know about your politician that they lied but will this policy. Do right the pulse really does two things and I. It gives you more control over the political ads. You see you essentially say you know what. I'm tired of the two thousand twenty election. I WANNA turn off most of that stuff and starting this summer. You'll have an option to be able to do that. Are there multiple options. Can I just turn off the liberal ads or turn off the conservative ads the conspiracy theory ads or whatever category there might in a sense. You can there's going to be one button. Allegedly this is according to the from. Yesterday that has not been fully rolled out yet where you can limits as across the board and then there's a second tool that you can take advantage of that stops. Individual campaigns ends and businesses from targeting adds to you based on your email address or other personal information that they might have on you so I could say I don't WanNa hear anymore from Donald trump or I don't WanNa hear anymore from Elizabeth Warren or pick your person right this is. This is a sort of what facebook is saying here. Based on those ads that are targeted to you on the basis of your email address entirely clear. What is is a political ad because as you know very well? There's so many different kinds of advertisements on issues that aren't necessarily directly from about a candidate. The right facebook has defined this in the sense to include everything from mechanic a campaign and a series a list of issues that include things like immigration and abortion and so forth. And when we're talking about this concern turnaround lying around falsehoods. That mostly involves candidates here. That's a person like president trump and his campaign speaking voters. And we've seen what happens when and facebook's policy really comes to head this occurred last year president trump's campaign purchase a series of ads that included a number of falsehoods about Vice President Joe Biden as it related into the impeachment inquiry underway on Capitol Hill Right now and facebook saw that it received a number of criticisms asking to take it down facebook said no those ads would still. We'll be allowed under facebook's new policy although you can choose not to see them if you decide but wouldn't this just encourage candidates to let other people lie for them which they already do now which they certainly already do within the other concern here. Is that. It's so hard to use facebook in the first place. I mean think about it. How many of your friends or loved ones know how to find their privacy or advertising advertising settings this is the issue that's been raised by experts and lawmakers in recent days? We'll just really matter. We'll see it leaves people to police their own their own

Democrats Frustrated With Pelosi’s Unwillingness To Impeach Trump
"Democratic frustration with Speaker Nancy Pelosi's unwillingness to impeach president trump is reaching a fever pitch following reports that trump pressured Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden and his son an increasingly singley vocal group of Pro Impeachment House Democrats are starting to dismiss their own oversight of trump as feckless accusing their colleagues of emboldening the president by refusing to stand up to what they see as lawless behavior at the very least these Democrats say the house should be taking more aggressive action to break the unprecedented White House stonewalling possibly defining or jailing defiant trump officials an idea Polisi dismissed earlier this year but which has increasing momentum inside the caucus congresswoman congresswoman Alexandria Cossio Cortez a longtime impeachment backer and a member of the squad tweeted this weekend at this point in her words. The bigger national scandal isn't the the president's lawbreaking behavior. It's the Democratic Party's refusal to impeach him for it. It's one thing for a sitting president to break the law. She tweeted but it's another to let him even house. Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff impeachment skeptic and a Pelosi ally suggested this weekend that the Rubicon may have been crossed he said impeachment I might now be inevitable and called reports of trump requesting that the Ukrainian leader investigate a business connected to Biden son quote the most profound violation of the presidential initial oath of office yet trump suggested Sunday that he did indeed mentioned Biden and his son hunter in a phone call with Ukrainian President Vladimir's Alinsky before releasing. US military aid trump has denied that it did anything wrong amid questions about whether he abused power to seek help from a foreign country for his reelection several people close to Pelosi told our Rachel Bait on Sunday that the speaker realizes trump's Ukraine request could force her hand. I'm told that she and shift were in touch throughout the weekend. Sinking sinking up strategies and talking points in a rare Sunday afternoon letter to all the members of the House the speaker called for the Director of National Intelligence to turn over the whistleblower complaint detailing trump's trump's interactions with Ukraine. Policy threatened an unspecified escalation in house action. If trump refuses though notably she stopped short of impeachment. White House lawyers have sought ways at every turn to block documents or witnesses from congressional investigators under the direction of the president who decries the various probes into him. I'm in his finances as unfair. He also Mocks House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler routinely the calculation White House officials. Tell my colleague Josh Dossey is that there will not be much of a price to pay for obstinance from the general public that the people who will be upset by this stonewalling will be on the Left Democrats they they say have been unable to move public sentiment in favor of impeaching trump to White House officials add that they're not worried about defying mocking Nadler because Pelosi's made it clear she's not interested in impeachment and the House Democratic Caucus split about what to do but in the two hundred thirty five member Democratic Caucus a majority of one hundred thirty eight have no publicly endorsed impeachment with policy unwilling to impeach trump democratic rank and file members are frantically looking for something to fortify their investigations on Friday afternoon mean judiciary members press Nadler to invoke Congress's long-dormant inherent contempt authority this would allow Congress to jail or fine people for defying subpoenas. Nadler Nadler supports this idea the power hasn't been used in a hundred years about Pelosi members of the leadership team some house lawyers were dismissive of the idea when investigators I floated in the spring but members of the committee are once again trying to force the issue and are planning to make the matter a big focus this week

Beto O'Rourke is running for President in 2020
"Kick things off with better Rourke early this morning. He tweeted out a video where he announced that he was running for president. Let's take a listen to some of that Amien are are happy to share with you that I'm running to serve you as the next president of the United States of America. This is a defining moment of truth for this country, and for every single one of us the challenges that we face right now, the interconnected crises in our economy, our democracy and our climate have never been greater and they will either consume us. They will Ford us the greatest opportunity to unleash the genius of the United States of America. Okay. So we're asking you to listen to a video, which always complicated. But you guys all watched. It you listen to it. The watching is important on this as well. The president of the United States had his own reaction to it talking about a rooks hand use. It was quite a bit of hand use. What were you guys reaction just going around? Danielle would you think watching this? And watching his announcement in Iowa today. I mean, I was struck by. He's very clearly going for, you know, positively, and you know, being upbeat and be and doing what a lot of strategists have set a democrat needs to do next time, which is say like not just making about Trump. Not just I'm not Trump. But more like, here's the kind of person. I am let me introduce you to me. Here's what I want to do. Yeah. I mean that kind of optimism is definitely something that in some way stands apart from some of the rest of the democratic field in this era of Trump, not everyone, but not Booker is in the same sort of vein. Right. Yeah. You could see that. But of course, Booker and have the same amount of. Of money or enthusiasm behind him for the Senate bid, which we'll talk more about. But Ron would you take away when you watch this video heard and saw a lot of urgency and energy and youth. He was communicating as he did as a Senate candidate that he was different sort of politician, not somebody who is emphasizing ideology or party, but somebody who is trying to be a UniteR but uniting people around the urgency and energy of youth. You know, he is the phenomenon candidate of this cycle. He has tremendous online presence. He has a kind of viral lifestyle where you see him on escape board in a parking lot at midnight. He's kind of he was the Senate candidate. Who was the Senate version of a OC? He's a viral native return. S? I'm sorry. Alexandria, Cossio Cortez. He also just has is on the cover of Vanity Fair where he's posing as Ron as Ronald Reagan did with kind of western jeans, hands and back pockets, and my favorite line of the Vanity Fair. Profile was the writer said the more he talks the more. He likes the sound of what he's saying. So there is this immediate backlash. He's the phobia or the, bro. Bama. And the question is he is has very optimistic positive kind of Carrizo charisma. The question is, where's where's the substance? And what effect he's going to have on this field? So who is this phenomenon candidate, Danielle let's get into a little bit of his bio where he came from the kind of work that he did as a member of the house, sir. Well, he's a Texan through and through. He was born in El Paso. He grew up there. He eventually went to Columbia University. But he came back. He was on the El Paso city council from two thousand five two thousand to two thousand eleven then he was a congressman from that district from twenty thirteen until twenty nineteen. And of course, he didn't run for reelection because he was running against Ted Cruz to run for that Senate seat. And that's when really I most Americans heard who Beto Iraq is

Just a symptom of a broader problem or we just so hyper sensitive just up, and we're just looking for everything under every rock you tell me or an eagle park. Michigan, and Gary that is you Mark Davis in for Hugh. How are you? Hey, Mark say is Joe Bomar and to live here in Michigan. Get away with just about anything. They wanna do. 'cause they're the Christ victimhood black Muslim and women. So nobody's going to touch 'em. They're gonna just do whatever they want as long as they're in office. That's a valid take. It's it's it's the Teflon. I may lie. We saw it in Jesse small at he had the trifecta black gay liberal, which means there's no way in the world that he was trying to hoax America on a on a bogus hate crime. In this particular case, you know, the left was largely unanimous about Jesse small at until it was impossible. I think they can ride this Ilhan Omar train forever. A train of denial a train of distancing a train of smokescreen. And it's very generational talking to Susan for a couple of minutes ago. The they're old school Democrats old school Jewish Democrats who are mightily offended by this. And and yet the Rushie the the Alexandria Cossio Cortez's not so much. And why would that be? I mean, I don't I don't for a minute believe that Alexandria, Cossio Cortez for all of her wacky beliefs. I don't necessarily believe that that she is anti-semitic. I think a lot of this is leftism, a leftism that does two things it makes you not like, America's closeness with Israel, and the reason for that. It may have nothing to do with the Jewish faith. But may have a lot to do with the fact that is that our support of Israel involves western democracy and rule of law and American values in the Middle East. Not just American values the values of religious freedom. The values of economic freedom the existence of Israel makes the rest of the Middle East looked terrible by comparison in a lot of ways that have nothing to do with religion. And so that's horrible for the left. And then throw in the way, the left deals with Islam ISM in deals with jihad which is to willfully blind itself to it's dangerous, and it's excesses put it all together at America's relationship with Israel, a good strong foundational defining relationship with Israel and. Moving the capital to Jerusalem, where it obviously needs to be that is kryptonite to the left. So all so there's a lot of stuff going on here that may not have anything necessarily to do with anti-semitism. But that doesn't mean that some of it does not we are in Atlanta w Mark Davis in four hew. How are you, sir? Good. How are you? Hi. I'm orthodox Jew. And I just want to thank you for what you're talking about. My pleasure. My pleasure. Basically, antisemitism has been on a nonsense. Beginning of the world where? Just everybody just wants to kill you or something like that. Yeah. You're very kind. Let me ask you something because you obviously attuned to this as I would expect you would be I think anti semitism like other types of bigotry is prob is overall the overall generally decreases as time goes by sometimes not enough that will never get rid of racism will never get rid of anti-semitism always be a residual amount of it. Unlike other things though, I think it will get less racist. White supremacy becomes a even more bizarre contract with each passing generation or year. Anti-semitism seems to have a certain flare up there seems to be brushfires. In the Middle East to be sure in Europe to be sure in America. Do you think that we had a serious rising anti-semitism problem? Well, I think everything just coming up with social media so increase the social media right now. This can be increased Senator them see as much. That's a spectacular point. If everyone's hatreds, they just sort of stewed in their basements. And now everybody's out there screaming at each other through the Bullhorn of Twitter and Facebook can exactly everybody's everybody's got. Everybody has a soapbox. Thank you, sir. Appreciate it very much that was that was sort of my point from a few minutes ago is are we really are. I think this totally applies to racism and white nationalism in all of this nonsense. I don't I think that we are. We totally become less racist. I think every day another racist dies. So just generation the problem gets better. You know, uncle Fred who just never liked black people. Well, when he goes to the great beyond there there. We are an increasing generations, I believe that that we become less racist as as as we go. But boy are are their corners. You can find our in fact, it is the erosion and the ebbing of racism that makes some people who might be in an actual clan. Claver in some corner of some state, I could name makes them rise up and go we're not gone yet. And then they get louder which makes people think they're more numerous, and I think that's a Mirage, but anti-semitism, and this this this is this is different this. It is absolutely on the rise in Europe. It is I think it's kind of funny is it on the rise in the Middle East. Or is it just always been there in the Middle East? I think Pew Research or somebody went over to various Middle Eastern countries. And it's a pretty famous survey. They ask people. Hey, how are you with suicide bombings? And you'd be amazed the thumbs up the percentage of people who gave a thumbs up to suicide bombing. Do what you gotta do not willing. Nelly. Let's kill American suicide bombings. But let's say maybe Palestinians who really had a beef about right of return or West, Bank, or Gaza. Excuse me. So in the Middle East. It's it's been a problem forever. Obviously. In Europe, it's becoming an enormous problem in America in America is anti-semitism air. We'll guess what we just elected.

Finance live for eight hours of live market coverage. They're ready, are you Amazon is leaving New York before it ever really arrived after a long highly publicized. Search New York was chosen as one of two locations for new Amazon headquarters, the other one was just outside Washington DC when the company made that announcement three months ago, the corporation promise, lots of jobs and economic boost for the neighborhood of Long Island city in queens. But there were protests from activists and local politicians and now Amazon is walking away. We should also mention Amazon isn't NPR underwriter NPR business. Correspondent Alina Seljuk joins us to talk about why the deal fell through the hugest sticking point in all of this for the critics was the fact that the city and the state were offering a really large subsidy package to Amazon. On tax breaks of almost three billion dollars. Right after that the upset city council. This was really big Amazon at big an approval process that involved the mayor and the governor but gave city council new real power over the Deel upset city counts. Right. And also in a way, this was a reflection of the rise of the progressive left. Representative Alexandria, Cossio Cortez had been an outspoken critic and hard district as near the area where Amazon wanted to build a new HQ. And there's something to be said about New York groups, really knowing how to mobilize in this case, housing groups, union groups, all kinds of groups came together. Add though city council hearings where Amazon was just pummeled and the supporters had their arguments to a potential of twenty five thousand well-paying jobs is nothing to sneeze at plus in the area of queens that doesn't really avid tech presence, but supporters weren't as visible as the activists and really New York. This played out more like a political fight than a businessman Goshi. So it can ask about the argument of a see it was just we don't think Amazon's gonna give enough back to our local community. It's not worth it. The tax breaks, basically. Yes. So what are we hearing from inside Amazon at this point about what it means for for their headquarters expansions worldwide. Right. So they're saying they can't really do project in a place where local elected officials don't want to work with them, and they will not be looking for a placement location. Although certainly other cities are probably calling them. Now, we saw Chicago officials publicly saying they'd welcome reconsideration from Amazon and even back in New York. Well, Amazon critics celebrated last night many people were torn about how this played-out maybe they didn't love the financials of the deal, but the didn't want Amazon just walk away. We spoke to Chris Hanway, executive director of a queens based nonprofit Jacob Reese neighborhood settlement. And he said he'd kept his mind. Open about the HQ deal was sad about the lost job opportunities for queens residents. But he also said Amazon hasn't been fully forthcoming with answers to some of the questions. The local groups had pink a real lesson for everybody who whether you're on the organizing side or you're on the corporate side about. The importance of communication communication. So lean it just briefly, this is a model for economic development. A lot of cities lure and businesses. With tax breaks is is this going to change anything to that model? It's hard to say the system that res- run on tax incentives has existed for a long time. But because this will go down in history as such a high profile failure to strike an agreement. I'm sure that the activists who post expert funded incentives will forever use this as fodder for the broad campaign against these kind of mega-deals right NPR's Alina Seljuk force this morning.

Amazon opts out of building New York City headquarters
"This whole story of Amazon not coming to New York City. Is this going to end up blamed on Alexandria, Cossio Cortez? Well, her and and every other far left democrat Laker. Yes. And so Amazon announced today that it is backing out of plans to open up the new headquarters the HQ to New York City. They blamed local politicians who had opposed our presence and will not work with us. That's what they said in the announcement today. So they'd set back in December. They were going to be building their twenty five thousand employees. We're going to be there. Some of them would be brought in from other places. Of course, it's not twenty five thousand people in that one neighborhood. Suddenly now have jobs, but still twenty five thousand employees. That's that ain't bad thing about all the cities that were rolling out the red carpet plea, Amazon and Amazon was getting a lot in return. Even to the point where I don't think you have to be an Alexandria, Cossio Cortez type person politically to say, boy, you're giving up a lot to Amazon to build there. It was three billion dollars in state and city incentives. So I get some of the pushback to that. And I agree with some of the push back to that. That's a lot of money to give away for twenty five thousand jobs. Oh, yeah. I mean, you're talking about the mayor. Yeah. Please. This guy can't associate his way out of a paper bag. So they have now pulled out. This will not affect what they were there. The hubs that they were building in northern Virginia to Nashville, but they are going to focus on growth in those places now because those places have welcomed them with open arms. So they blame local politicians including Cynthia Nixon the chick from sex and the city who ran for office last year. Red for governor. I guess the democratic primary. She said this is good. She wrote a man the fight against Amazon laid bare their union busting corporate welfare ice of betting practices. Ed shows why we need to break up monopolies like Amazon. So they have something in common with Trump. They don't like Amazon. That's right. Exactly. Yeah. Who does like Amazon Beverly uses Amazon. I know it's it's the Facebook thing. Right. It's gotten so big. How can you not use it people hate it? But it's like, oh, it's convenient now. Now Amazon said there was a seventy percent approval in New York City of for this project. And it just depends on what polls you look at. But on average it looks like about it was more than half fifty six percent of New Yorkers wanted. This to be here wanted this to be there. I mean, the Richard picks influence people one way or another. That was earlier this week. They said, yes, a majority of New Yorkers like this business. You're getting there. That's twenty five thousand jobs. It's a good thing. But the Alexandro Cossio Cortez's of the world chase them away. And they said fine. We'll take our

"And you can be a contestant so much going on today. Almost don't know where to begin. I'm absolutely obsessed with peeling back the curtain to reveal the phony that is Alexandria Cossio Cortez. This is the freshman congresswoman who's groused about the fact. That she couldn't afford to live in DC on her hundred and seventy five thousand dollars a year salary. She was concerned has she get an apartment because it just would be too expensive. She moved into an a luxury apartment building with amenities that most people would die for the rent for the studio apartments in that building start at two thousand bucks a month. And the Washington free beacon is found out where she lives but with concerns for her safety. They're not giving away the exact building. But here's somebody. Somebody says that we have income inequality while she's making one hundred seventy four thousand dollars a year while you and is taxpayers foot. The Bill for her her office in DC and her staff and her office in the Bronx, and the staff there, we actually are putting out a lot of money for this woman who now wants to have socialism inflicted on all of us while she lives in a very nice building in Washington DC. I'm I'm just not a fan of this kind of thing. Now, the reality around Alexandria Kazu Cortez. Is the creation I hinted at this before she's a creation. She is part of a group that is being recruited. That's the best way to put it. There's an organization a well-funded organization of progressives who are known as the young Turks, and they are headed by a guy named jank. You gear. You gear his first name spelled with a seabird pronounced like a j you gear. Led the charge to recruit what he called four hundred possible congress people, and they put up the call two years ago with a group called Justice, Democrats and the Justice Democrats want to take us to socialism, they wanna get rid of the electoral college. They want us to be a direct democracy, which would be a disaster for any conservative. We'd never have another conservative elected in this country. And you gear and the Justice Democrats were in league with the guy who is now a casual Cortez's chief of staff. He's the guy who published the green new deal. He's the guy who uploaded to the internet. He's the guy behind all this. He's the puppet master I can't pronounce his name. But now, they're calling them the, you know, the cute boy the progressive movement. But this no not better. This is a ABC's chief of staff, and I mentioned earlier that she came out of this movement called Justice Democrats, they put up a website. Chuck that says Frank that says that they wanted four hundred candidates for congress. She was one of twelve thousand people who responded to the website. She's the only one who won a seat, and they ransacked they want four hundred people that was an anomaly what happened, and I hope so I tell you the reason why okay. What was his name, Crowley or? Yeah. Crowley, the guy that she found the head. He had been the. Had reelected year after year. Are you? After election ten years. He'd been there Pelosi even put a half million dollars into his campaign. Now, he was expected to be such a shoe in. That I really believe he didn't do enough himself or the people didn't think that it that he's competition was that serious to begin with. So the result is only four percent of the people who could vote in that district motive four percent. I mean that is Baltimore City. We get one Baltimore City because we're here in the state of Maryland sometimes because we only have like a twenty nine percent turnout but four percent in the congressional district race. Well, that was in the primary, and so he he got bounced because he got cocky and lazy and she went on did the work. But I do think I do think they. I do think these progressives. This Justice democrat group is dangerous because they have already got she didn't have a website, they built her website for her and gave her the URL. She had none of that. This was all they decide she was telling genyk, and she could learn and deliver a message, and so they put her out there. But I'm not gonna fan fires here. But if it ever gets to the point where this country. Is so divided that progressive narrowly become a majority. You're going to see the cold civil war turned into a hot civil war. Or I'm going to get a giant saws all and I'm just going to cut the country in half. We'll live in the half with the guns in the oil. And all that good stuff..

"Border, and he needs to grasp ad hominem attack and businesses way of doing it like that was an Alexandria Kazuyo Cortez. And like, I hope you're having a great evening and the roads out there. A dystopia because you know, it's it's a little scary and my generation wants to fix things for everybody. So that we could have like a better country and a socialist utopia. All right. So that's my Alexandria, Cossio Cortez. Impression is it. All right. How is it? How is it? Ryan, really good. Although I think she just went up you every time this whole economic security to all who are unable or unwilling to work. I cannot wrap my head around that one. I can. I mean, it's sorta like we'll take from the productive society. People who are working get to people who are now working so much and. Yeah, wait till you hear what else is in this green new deal you hit. It sounds bad at titles bad enough. But it is absolutely offline. I don't think that good old speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi was to stoked about it either. Because when she was asked about it. She was like, yeah. This this green dream thing. I don't know. Exactly. What's in it? And she later came back and gave them more respectful comment. But even she was like, this is just such a dumb, and I'll tell you what it is. We're gonna talk a little bit about it. Three zero three seven one three eight two five five also text me five seven seven three nine. Not the only thing we're had talk about talk about some double standards between you know, Kevin on Fairfax. What tap into? Let's I'll believe all the women out there. Like, the Democrats more likely to believe a fellow democrat in the face of charges of sexual harassment and sexual assault. We'll talk with Jesse waters. You know, the good looking guy on Fox News have be calling us in the second half of this hour and also lawmakers they set to take up a another bad Bill G is it like hobby habit. It just seems like for all they're saying, oh, we're not going to overreach. We just want to do with what Colorado's want for our state. And it seems like a lot of the ideas that have come up, particularly in the house. Yeah. Little bit. Let's just say not out of respect for our private prerogatives. Be straws Strasbiurg therapy. Be at a number of different things took a little bit about that later on the show. Also, my column comes out tomorrow. And it's about vaccines and the importance of vaccine, so welcome your thoughts. Three zero three seven one three eight two five five and now for degreen dream. Yes. I've not only read the resolution. It's not a real Bill. It's a resolution. It's the kind of thing that congress does when it wants to commemorate like one hundred year anniversary. It's it's not a real piece of legislation. Thank goodness. And of course, all the big names, or are, you know, getting on getting on the Bill. They're excited about it. Kamala Harris, and and Spartacus Spartacus his real name. Bookie book bookie. Cory booker. Who interestingly enough used to be somewhat moderate used to be a big school choice guy when he was mayor. And I guess he's decided that that's not a particularly convenient position to have. If he wants the support of the union, speaking of unions, and I could get off on too much of a tangent. But you know, that there's a good possibility that the Denver unions gonna strike on on Monday, yet classes will still be open your Cato, probably still get some education. But it's it's not looking good. I know the district is trying to hammer out a deal. We'll see I just don't know that the public is really stoked about any additional drama after the whole shutdown thing. I think people are like, you know, can we just be can we just compromise? Can we just move along? Well, okay, back to the green deal because this thing is it's amusing. So she comes out with the resolution also comes out with a frequently asked questions document that she handed out to places like NPR. And then she also. Hello had this up on her website. Well, some of what was said in that document was so inane that. Yeah. She had to pull it down. Well, not before a Mr Ryan captured it with some screen shots. So I had a chance to to check it out. And it's actually like a little bit worse as if there was any any doubt that the new green deal or the green new deal? I should say is is absolutely horrific this separate document, which has I think prudently been pulled down. Yes. So affiliate on that as well. So just a couple of highlights. So here's what it'll do. It'll ban affordable energy. Yep. It calls for the elimination of all fossil fuel energy, you consider that wind and solar provide about well percent total. And you know, what the not so good at night. Just saying that, you know, I I guess, you know, the wind does blow at night, but when the wind isn't blowing and the sun isn't shining. It's not exactly a great way to power things. It it calls for the elimination of fossil fuels, and it would also eliminate nuclear energy. We'll talk to any real scientist and somebody who actually knows a thing or two you. In order to decarbonised the grid. If you really want to go to to all kinds of sources that do not emit carbon dioxide you have to have nuclear energy. You cannot do it all with hydro sun and wind hydro, basically, it's it's tapped out at least here in America. We have Dan had a lot of major dams doing a good thing in other countries. They're still doing some major dams. There's one drawback to big dams. They flood valley's they they eliminate archaeological sites. They eliminate towns. They move people there problematic not to so that we don't have good dams here in this country. But there is a reason we have reservations upheld building more sun and wind or great, but limited wind, of course, kills about a half a million birds and a half a million bats cluding endangered animals. Every year not saying it's a bad thing to have to saying that if there happens to be birds around probably not the best thing to have. In the in migration path. Right. And so that's why I say that we need to have. Now. I don't have a problem with reducing coal in favor of natural gas, which is a lot cleaner. I do believe in global warming. I do believe that human beings have contributed to that through carbon emissions, but I can guarantee this is not the answer. Let me let me continue. It would eliminate ninety nine percent of cars. Yeah. All the only cars that would be left. Our electric cars things with combustion engines in compassion engine. It's been around since like the fifteenth century, not not not a bad thing. The combustion engine that has fueled every modern thing, and the reason that we're not milling wheat with horse hooves is because we've cut the combustion engine. And yeah, would eliminate cars trucks boats scooters, basically anything that takes gasoline. And yeah, you'd be stuck with electric scooters and electric lawnmower. Might be okay there as well and electric cars. So yeah. Take a glance at your car because this is this resolution where to become some sort of legislation and heaven forbid actually pass it gets signed by the president it. Yeah. Say goodbye to your car and all within ten years. So you know, you might want to start saving up for a sixty thousand dollar sixty thousand dollars tesla. Because remember when the far left, let's say Ralph Nader, we're so concerned about consumers, and I liked rail for that reason consumerism, and that's what's being lost. And all this is the average Joe and Jane out there. Driving an internal combustible engine paying for gas. And all of a sudden they're just supposed to drive electric cars and ride light rail instead of flying planes. I lost that. Yeah. You don't get to choose. I remember my my favorite when Ralph Nader ran for president a couple couple of elections back. I remember seeing an SUV with a Ralph Nader sticker on it. And it's like, I guess it's tough to be in the left. Don't you? Think it's kind of tough to be a hard hard left E because if you're if you're one of these Hollywood types, and you got like a five thousand square foot house and a fleet of automobiles in your own plane. It's a little tough to be telling us common folk that we need to reduce our carbon footprint will all you have to do. Krista is watch curb your enthusiasm was Larry, David. And no matter how left or politically, correct. He tried to be he could never be politically correct or left enough. I don't think you can't. 'cause there's no self limiting principle. Really? I mean, I if if government can never be too big if they can never take too much in terms of taxes, if there's not such thing as too many government programs. There's no limiting principle. And I realized that while Republicans not so good about keeping within their limiting principles. But Democrats don't have any with the exception of wraps abstinence education. There is no bad government program in the mind of lefty three zero three seven one three eight five five. So I continue. With a little bit of this resolution. The green new deal by Alexandria Cossio could tests. Rush limbaugh. I would prefer it as an Alexandria Cossio Cortez. That's my my little version of her definitely a question. Like, you just said it it is. Well, she a verbal uptick on almost everything she says, and I'm bipartisan not only can I do Bernie Sanders, but I can also do Ted Cruz. So it's not like, I'm, you know. And then you know, you've got you've got I got. I'm Hillary Clinton. And I am always angry said I've got I've got that. But I can't scare us by far, and it makes my throat hurts. I can't do it that often Ryan on the other hand can do a pretty good Trump and everything. So Chris here if you need it, and how about an Adam Sandler, let's hear it. Oh, yes. We're going to have a good time tonight. Not bad not bad at all. So. Yeah. So Alexandra Kazu Cortez. Her legislation would gut and rebuild every building in Colorado. Colorado in America, it would gut and rebuild every building in America. And so yeah, it was quote unquote, retrofit every building in America was state of the art, energy efficiencies. So I guess in addition to losing your car. You're going to be different house. And I'm pretty sure this building. I'm in right now, probably not up to specs and how much would it cost? You think to to rebuild gut and rebuild every building in America. You gotta wonder I get no self limiting problem. No, self Lebanon principle there, you can spend as much as you want on this silly green new deal also would eliminate air travel. So you know, you might want to move in with grandma because you're not going to be taking a vacation to see grandma, and you got to say good luck to Hawaii man or any of those islands because you can't take a boat there. You certainly camp is gonna take a little bit longer. And is they want to import things from the from the mainland. They're going to have to wait for it. The great island. They do produce a lot of great foods there. But I'm guessing they're gonna probably need some things from the mainland or other countries have been trade, but good luck to get everything by boat it, no planes. So it gets in the next ten years. You you're going to need to get to Hawaii or any of the islands or for that matter because it's a little bit hard to get to Europe from America without a plan. You could do it with a boat takes an number of days. But yeah, the some of the islands are going to be a little tricky. And hope you got time. 'cause I well, you know, what I don't even want the boats will work, and here's why if we're going to eliminate the combustion engine that's going to mean, no more diesel. And I understand that most most ships are run on diesel. Now, there are military watercraft that are run on nuclear. But I I get the impression from the legislation nuclear out too. So sailing. We're back to sailing. We're back to nineteenth century technology. And so I'm thinking if you want to get to Europe, that's a good. Like, a good three months journey, and I suspect that when the waves are big it could be a fatal journey, but hey, you gotta save the planet and then boats, you know, you gotta take a boat to Hawaii boat Asia. So. Schedule that in just take take that into account for vacations that if you wanna go somewhere, you either going to go on foot, you're going to go on your electric car your bike, if it's overseas, you're looking at some kind of sailing operation..

"One zero three five FM. Alexandria, Cossio Cortez. This was. This was yesterday at a Martin Luther King forum in in New York City, where she was making these comments and also being interviewed here, we have it in just a moment this to Nishi coats, and we'll play you some more audio and we'll get to your phone call. I here just a second. What I love about this. And that we just played this is this is genuine, right? So this is this is Alex Andrea Cossio Cortez in front of a crowd, and this is her being genuine and just putting it out there. It tells you how limited she is in her knowledge of what it is. She's she's talking about. I mean, it really it for a in my opinion tells you everything you need to know about her. She just doesn't she just doesn't it doesn't have affirm affirm grasp right? She's basically absorbed a lot of this a lot of these different ideas. And and and and thoughts about what Democrats should be and socialism. And there's a great moment in the in the. The movie forgetting, Sarah Marshall, Russell brand the comedian is in that movie and Kirsten bells is his girlfriend is a point when they get into a fight and he's got a bunch of tattoos on his body. And she starts mocking him going all these debt Jews these religious tattoos. These are all conflicting ideologies. It doesn't mean that you're this global person. It just means that you're full of blank. You know? That's what she is. She's just she's this progressive, right, regurgitate, or of ideas and understand it. That's exactly what I was gonna say the ability to regurgitate talking points and narratives that you've heard from other people doesn't make you smart, right? It doesn't make you a leader. You don't understand these issues that you're talking about? That's what makes you smart is the ability to hear these things process them research them understand them and reach rational conclusions. She is completely irrational. She has heard the worst case scenario of every possible situation. And she feels this great need now that she has been elevated to this platform of being one of four hundred and thirty five representatives in the house of representatives. It's just one voice out of many. But she's been elevated by the daily shows by the coal bears by progressive leadership. She's been put on this pedestal. And now, she's. Feels like she has to be the champion of the earth. Right. She doesn't know what she's talking. She has no idea what she's talking about. I'm sorry. Like, she doesn't know what she's talking about regurgitating gibberish. She's a walking word cloud. Patty in forest lake. Good morning. Good morning gentleman.

"See how it works and the goal is for you to control your wallet. Not for it to control you. Now, speaking of expenses. And I always mess up this woman's name Alexandria, Cossio Cortez. That on the blogs. They call her ace a OC. Hey, oh, see how about that reduced to initials is twenty nine years old? I think and this is this socialist member of congress from New York state. And she floated a proposal for a seventy percent. Personal income tax rate on people with higher incomes. So. What was very interesting about. This is this was designed for people who make ten million or more dollars a year. So only people like Joe. Pay the seventy percent, that'd be huge bummer for me. The seventy percent. I'd hate that. But what was interesting was that there was polling done afterwards. That found that there was wide support across the political spectrum. Nearly half a Republicans. Sixty percent independence. Seventy percent of Democrats sixty percent overall thought it was a great idea to have a tax on people who make huge money that was roughly double the highest tax rate is today to let you know. This is something that has precedent in American history. This will stunned you do you know when the late president Kennedy came into office. The top federal tax rate was ninety one percent. Ninety one percent. And then president Kennedy was looked at as a huge tax cutter. When he got the congress to cut the rate the top one to this same seventy percent. So it's all a matter of perspective where things are. But a couple of things based on what I've seen in people's responses to this that I want to explain to you first of all we're talking about what show is marginal tax rates, and nobody really gets marginal tax rates. Marginal tax rate is is it's what you make on the next dollar earnings. So we have a bunch of tax brackets in the United States, and the way they work is you pay so much a percent of your income up to a certain level. And then above that, you pay the next higher level and on like that so income up to ninety five hundred year is ten percent tax from ninety five hundred year to just under forty thousand is twelve percent tax from just under forty to just over eighty twenty two percent tax. And then. It continues up to the highest thirty seven percent. Who does the thirty-seven percent apply to well? The first half a million your tax a stared up rates from ten to twelve to twenty two twenty four thirty to thirty five and then thirty seven percent if you make a half million or more. So what this member of congress is proposing a oh, see I'm not gonna be able to get used to that. Anyway, she's the dancing congresswoman right anyway is the idea that once your income hits the stratosphere, which I'd say ten million a year stratosphere, you would pay seventy percent. Tax on ten million a year and above. But the thing is the reality with tax rates is that as he raised the rates the people you're trying to target with those rates are in a position to hire lawyers and accountants do work arounds set up shell companies like shell oil or companies that collect seashells. It's a it's an expression in business that they they move enterprises around to reduce the overall tax Bill, they manipulate and they have the money to manipulate by hiring, the experts and the truth is you alternately tend to collect more when you have simplified tax structures and simplified rates where people just say, okay, that's what it is all pay that then when you start boosting those rates. Because when tax rates were ninety one percent. Nobody was paying the ninety one percent. Even among the people who were income that they were supposed to pay the ninety one percent because they had their team of people. They were keeping that from happening. So unless your goal is to create full employment for accountants and lawyers the real answer is tax simplification. And by the way, that's not what we got in last year's tax Bill last year's tax Bill was really only about serving the needs a big corporations, and there's virtue and lowering the tax rates, they pay, but it had really nothing to do with you and me, and that's why a lot of people now face higher tax net tax bills under the new tax law, then under the old one because somebody's got to pay for at least a portion of all those tax break. Thanks for corporations. Andrew is with us on the Clark Howard show. Hello, andrew. How you doing? I'm doing well Clark. How are you? Great. Thank you. So andrew. Byu followed that path, but I have laid out about dumping the hyper expensive paytv package. And now you're getting slapped around for following my path. Exactly. So tell me how bad it is. What's happened? So we we got rid of our dish and went to YouTube TV and a couple of other streaming options. And I've been very happy. Cut our Bill from about one hundred and ten dollars a month to forty dollars a month. Of course for you too. Me. And you know, something we've never looked at before. Never even hit our radar was that there's a data cap for our home internet. So. Is yours. One terabyte. You know, I'm not even sure I think it's maybe five hundred gig. And so above that, they charge you for every one hundred gigs. They charge you an extra ten bucks a month. Exactly. So we had thirty dollars higher on the on the Bill when I went to pay it this past weekend, and what is going on here and talk to the to the internet provider. And there you have it. So we've been exceeding our our data limit and the other options with staying with the same. Internet provider is a very hefty almost seventy dollars a month to to go for unlimited, and you know, we're.

Bernie Sanders, you know, looks like a conservative compared to a Cossio Cortez. And of course, she's her supporters understand socialism Medicare for all is cheaper than ObamaCare. Not true. Even the liberal news media is calling her out on on the cost of all of the plans that she's put together the upper middle class. America doesn't exist anymore. It's not true. Either. She doesn't answer how to pay for her forty billion dollar platform ain't gonna pay for all this. It doesn't at end. Of course. She wants to defeat global warming like we defeated Nazis. We have a cut of her saying that she can't name three branches of government on top of all of this. That's a little scary. And you know, even I think Nancy Pelosi is afraid of her. I think Nancy Pelosi knows that her speakership is hanging in the balance because of. The radicals that are in her party. And they there there could be a change in leadership within the next two years. That's why Nancy Pelosi I'll give you a dollar for the wall. And a Cossio Cortez the goal of zero carbon emissions no fossil fuels in twelve years. Okay. It's the lifeblood of every economy had it cylindrical workout for us not that well, a waste of taxpayer money, which again, the media didn't care about the quid pro quo in that particular case she wants a seventy percent tax on the super wealthy. How do we define superwealthy? That's like comrade the Blasi. Oh, there's a ton of wealth in New York. It's just in the wrong hands. Well, did they steal it? They were they drug dealers was are these ill-gotten gains of people that have money. I know some people that have money in my life. I know some people that have moderate incomes in life. I know people of all economic socio economic backgrounds in my life. I know some people that work nineteen hours a day every day and don't stop now. Maybe and I know people that only wanna work five six hours a day. And they do they wanna live a better life. They've made the choice of living a better life, but they don't make as much money as those people that were eighteen hours a day. Now, we're going to say, oh, we're going to punish you for deciding making the choice to work eighteen hours a day. What about the people that spent all those years going to law school medical school? Think of our to become a doctor four years of college. What three or four years of medical school, internships residencies and one day you want to start an office. But you still you start now with five hundred thousand dollars in debt student loans to pay for your education was you're lucky enough to have parents that we're able to pay for you. But most people take out loans, they gotta pay all that money back. Then if they want to start a business. Well, now, you're talking there in the late twenties early thirties. Now, they want to start a business. Okay. We'll have to have money for that. They want to start a practice. And then maye, let's say their work. Life is is intense just to pay back the loans that's gonna take a long time. Then if they get business than they have to pay rent, and then they have to hire people. And then they look at the look at the equipment a doctor needs to put in their office spending on what type of medicine is being practice or dentist. You know, those those Dennis chairs are really expensive. Okay. Well, you got to pay for them. Maybe take loans out on them. Then you gotta start getting patients in those chairs that takes maybe marketing money, and you got to pay the light Bill, and you got to pay the maintenance people, then you got to pay this person.

Kathy in her defense. I'm not going to defend her. But this is where at age twenty nine as somebody just elected to congress. I would expect her to have some problem solving skills. I understand that during her campaign for office. She probably almost certainly quit doing the job that she had been working at to make Olympic which is being a bartender. So she wasn't working for six or eight months chances are she doesn't have a whole big pile of money sitting in the Bank right now. And that if you go to rent because if I don't recognize these realities, you're going to get people who are going to say, well, but you don't understand this. This young lady has worked in months. She doesn't have a giant Bank account if she goes to Washington DC and says I want to rent this one bedroom apartment average rent their two thousand dollars a month, we need first and last and a deposit. So you're gonna have to write us a check for five or six thousand dollars just to move in. And she's saying she can't figure out how to do it even though her she will be sworn in on the third of. January and on the first paycheck, which I assume is going to come on the fifteenth of the month. She's going to get a check for half of her monthly salary, which is about fifteen or sixteen thousand dollars should got eight grand minus taxes, she'll probably get a five thousand dollar check. So is it possible to solve that problem? If you're smart enough to run for office, if you're smart enough to win a seat in the United States Congress. Should you be smart enough to be able to figure out a work around to say, I'm going to make fifteen thousand dollars grows probably closer to you know, nine or ten thousand dollars a month net after taxes can I figure out how to rent a two thousand dollar apartment and get the kind of money up front to be able to rent that apartment because I know the money is coming in.

Midterm Elections: White Supremacy Rearing Its Ugly Head

Andrew you've been reporting on the fringes of right wing, nationalism, and all the associated movements people like, Mike, sir.

It's never really not existed. But in terms of the most recent resurgence of it, you know, Trump has a lot to do with it. I mean there there's always been dog. Whistle politics. Right. And we should definitely note that democr-. Rats have engaged Republicans have engaged in it. But it's not even really a dog whistle anymore. It's kinda just a whistle. You know, there's there's there's more and more openness with people just espousing white, nationalist views, and that has a lot to do with Trump. Well, people would point out that when Ronald Reagan was first campaigning for president. He campaigned and give a big speech in the show becoming Mississippi. And he talked there about nothing less than state's rights. And this was at the very least a dog whistle to the far. Right. Is that something different? And why because he vociferously tonight it when people asked him, he said states rights doesn't mean that when people ask Nixon, what do you mean by silent majority? What do you mean by law and order he vociferously denied it? They're not really denying it anymore. So people like, you know, Steve king who is a congressman in Iowa. He's not flirting with the line. He he doesn't believe that these lines should exist. So what is what does Steve king's history? What is he said and done? So Steve king is a congressman from Iowa. He's represented the western part of Iowa for fifteen years at this point. He's running for re election in November. And he he's very clearly into a dog. Whistle racism. He talks a lot about western civilization and European heritage. And that kind of stuff, but he always in the past would leave some plausible deniability, and then just in the last couple of years, partly because of Trump and partly because he has a Twitter account. He has been saying things like demographics are Estany. And then he says we can't restore our civilization with someone else's babies. There's no way to read that that doesn't take our civilization to mean, white people. There's no plausible reading of it other than a white nationalist reading does he deny? Well, not really. I mean, he kind of gets called to the mat and says, no, I don't regret saying that he doesn't take down tweets. He doesn't delete them. He kinda says, oh, this, you know, PC culture. Everybody gets called racist. All the time. You know, you guys are always Pearl clutching and stuff, but he never walks back. The actual substance nor does he ever like explain how that could mean anything other than white nationalism. Well, let's talk about what? We're talking about. Let's listen to one of Stephen king's statements about diversity. This is from an interview that he gave to an Iowa radio program. And when you start accentuating the differences, then you end up with people that are at each other's throats as adding up as fantastic than black, and he predicts will be in greater numbers than whites in America. I will predict Hispanic than the black will be fighting each other before that what do you make of that? I mean, there are there are much more extreme examples of his rhetoric than that. But basically, it's that's kind of a turning the tables of saying by talking about, you know, the black voting block or the Hispanic voting block anyone doing that. Is there for the racist? Paul Ryan speaker of the house was asked where do you stand on this, and he waits three days or something? And then I forget how long awaited buddy, Paul Ryan puts out this very carefully worded statement doesn't mention Steve king's name at all that just says we have horror racism, so in other words, it's not like he's such an outlier that the rest. Of the GOP can very comfortably wash their hands of him and say, he's not our guy. He is their guy. They're not pulling funding from him. At least not in the way that they're making public to what does it suggest about American politics that the most powerful leader and one of the houses of congress Paul Ryan feel that cannot afford to reject somebody like king. It's terrifying. It's yeah. It means that they've read the tea leaves. And they know that this is too big a part of their support based to give up on you've spent the last year marinating in the juices of what one could call a cyber fascist. Fortunately, talking to a lot of people who are the very most active players invoices in what you're calling fascism. And what does it tell you about American political life? Look, I think it's not that everything has utterly transformed. And you know, we weren't we weren't close to the brink. And now we are. I mean, we're closer now for sure, but. What is the brink? Well, it can't happen here. You know, that notion that you know, fascism could have happened in Europe. But it can't happen here. I think we're now all starting to see that there's no law of nature that says that that walls off the United States. Yeah. We we are an extremely flawed society with a extremely dicey racial history that perhaps uniquely so among the countries, we're talking about democracy is a very delicate tricky thing, right. If Steve king is now going out there and just essentially saying to the people of Iowa Hello. I'm a white nationalist. Do you want to vote for me or do you want to vote for the other guy? There's no guarantee that they want to vote for the other guy. Well, let's talk about the other guy his opponent kings opponent is a democrat. Former baseball player named JD Scholten the Shelton had chance, and what are the dynamics of that race look like he's much taller. So that's generally, a good thing in politics. He's six six and he's driving around the district in a winnebago and shaking. Everyone's hand and being very folksy. He's out fundraising king. He still down in the polls. I mean incumbency is a very powerful thing in house elections and king has been there for six terms. What's the district? Thank it's deep deep Brad as they say and king, you know, it's it's you might not know this from looking at his Twitter feed. But racism is not his only thing, you know, he also wants ethanol subsidies. And he also says he wants to support farmers now. He's been in congress for fifteen years. He has sponsored exactly one Bill that passed which was to rename a post office in Iowa. So he's not the most effective legislator. Now that we live in the age of Trump are there new politicians on the scene who seemed to be entering the stage or coming onto the stage in a way, they might not have before. Yeah. I think someone like Corey Stewart he was someone who the Virginia GOP just thought would fizzle out and he's running for Senate. He's running for Senate against him. Cain who will probably win. But you know, what's his level of support? He's doing better than one would expect. I mean, he he won the primary and his whole national image is based on being standing up for these confederate monuments. We can't tear them down. There are heritage. He was born and raised in Duluth Minnesota. So not the heart in the heart of the confederacy Steve king, by the way used to have a confederate flag on his desk in the capitol building, which by the way, Iowa sent a lot of soldiers today to fight against the confederacy. So it's like, gee, I wonder what that flag means to you. In New Jersey in the state of New Jersey, New Jersey, congressman Seth Grossman was dropped by the Republican party. After saying the diversity is crap. Is that an outlier incident is at a very rare instance of the of the party standing up to some of its extremists voices. Yeah. I think he I think the Seth Grossman thing was a bit of an anomaly. I mean, you have even more anomalous cases than that. You have a guy named Arthur Jones in Illinois who is literally a Nazi who stands in front of Nazi flags and give speeches and he won a GOP primary in a district where it's heavily democratic. And so they don't bother to run a lot of Republicans in these in these racist. So he's not going to win the general election. It's very scary that a literal Nazir's is running for office in Illinois, and that and that this guy Grossman is running for office in New Jersey. But those are outliers. I mean, so I don't want to paint the picture that, you know, this is happening everywhere all the time. But again the fact that someone like Seth Grossman in New Jersey in New Jersey. Would have, you know, concealed his feelings. A little bit more. A just a few years ago just a couple of years ago. But now he's he's unleashed his unleashed. He's linking to this blog post. You know, calling black people inherently dangerous, and he's just posting this on his website. And then he says, oh, well, I'm Jewish. So I can't be racist. So false. Yeah. I can falsify that one with personal injury a century ago. There was a second flowering of the Ku Klux Klan, and there were Ku Klux Klan members in congress Ku Klux Klan members in every business organization in chamber of commerce in the country. It was like a social movement in some ways Ku Klux Klan barbecues and block parties and all the rest a somewhat different from the the first flowering of the Ku Klux Klan. But it was the clan. Nevertheless, is that kind of mass acceptance of white supremacy organized white supremacy a possibility, yes, I think it is. I mean, this is. I do think it ebbs and flows. And I think it's important to note that when the year anniversary March happened there was no one there. I mean, literally like fifteen people there of Charlottesville. Right. So that Jason Kessler tried to go to DC and do it again. And no one went with him things do change. But I do think it is possible for this kind of broad based, you know, racism as as a fun social club thing to take off. Again, proud boys are a social club, the proud wiser this group of you know, they call themselves western chauvinist, they denied being a white pride organization, but they're a quote, unquote, western pride organization and the proud boys just this past weekend were in the streets of Manhattan, beating people up, and they they brand themselves as a social club, but they're also violent street gang.

"Alexandria, Calcio Cortez. The socialist Bolshevik from West Chester county. The new hero of the democrat party and the media, but I repeat myself. Believes that it's time to erase the electoral college, should she's using the old noodle there. Because it's racist. The electoral college is racists, don't, you know, she our fathers and our tax. You grew up in Westchester county. She pretended to grow up in the Bronx. She hates Jews. There's a new story in the New York Times today about how the Democrats are lining up to oppose Israel because they're an extremely virulently anti Israel party. Barack Obama was Hillary Clinton is and the party is extremely anti Israel and just call him genocidal, racists because so. It's a little different with with them. They're allowed to be racist. And it's it's okay. But Alexandria, Cossio Cortez who talks about Palestine. And she that known anything about it. She revealed how profoundly ignorant she is. And how she is as as a democrat. They they're sort of always stuck on campus. I thank him. And they believe everything they're told I guess at least the last thing that they're told. He also thought that the unemployment rate was low because everybody had two jobs that she's a real genius this one. She's a smarty. Kind of cute, though, Alexandria, Casio Cortez. We must eliminate the electoral college. The Washington Times writes today, Jessica Chaz, mar Alexandria, Cossio Cortez democratic socialists, hoping to represent New York's fourteenth congressional district declared over the weekend that the electoral college is a racist. American relic that must be abolished. Everything's racist. And they're the party of the confederacy of Jim crow, the clan interning, the Japanese of Planned Parenthood, and they love calling everybody racist. They're the party of banning black people the Woolworth's lunch counter. The party of bull Connor of Orval Faubus standing in schoolhouse doors, pretty much every racial stain. This country has a democrat. But don't bother looking it up because the Democrats don't want you to. She said it is well past time, we eliminate the electoral college, a shadow of slavery's power on America today that undermines our. Nation as a Democratic Republic. That's what she said. Twenty eight year old Boston University graduate. She tweeted this. She has more than eight hundred eighty thousand Twitter followers, all of them dumber than the next one that they're just simple. Visit Cortez was commenting on a tweet by g q magazine's Julia. I off who complained that the electoral college has helped conservatives get elected that said anything that that gladly dismantle the constitution for one more seat in the house of representatives permanent damage. No problem. They're fine. With that. Julia off said we're a country where two presidents who both lost the popular vote. Have now placed four justices on the supreme court, democracy and action. Well, we have a Republic here. And I don't know if you're familiar with our system of government, Julie or or Alexandra, but maybe you guys should. Do a little learn and maybe a little book. Learn and we'd go maybe civics one. Oh, one fifth grade civics would probably do. And then you could catch up to the country that you've lived in all of your miserable lives, and then you'd have some idea what was going on. And not be completely clueless house with a friend yesterday. We had brunch yesterday with several friends not a conservative among them. And I'm happy to say that it was very nice civil civilized brunch. And went on for three hours, and we talked about all kinds of things and Brett Kavanagh's named never came up and Donald Trump's name. I think never came up never came up. Certainly Brett Kavanagh's ner ner three hours with two liberals had an in-between yesterday. And it was kind of a, you know, I wasn't uneasy truce or anything, but we just didn't talk about politics, and it was nice people that have been friends with for twenty some odd years and in two out of the three cases. And and the and the third person of Brazilian a Brazilian national Brazilian citizen Brazilian passport holder who is now here in for a long time been in the United States yesterday was election day in Brazil. And here's a fun fact to know until that the news media doesn't talk. About first of all the big right winger there who's like the Donald Trump of Brazil did so well yesterday and the elections that that the fake media here is shocked by all of this. But my my friend with whom we had brunch. Yesterday, informed us, and I think I knew at one point voting in Brazil is mandatory. It's not voluntary. It's mandatory to vote. There is a penalty. If you do not vote in Brazil, and they set up polling places that Brazilian embassies around the world. Here in Washington. There's a big Brazilian population. So they set up a polling place. I think it was at the capitol Hilton on sixteenth street near the White House and Brazilians came down with Brazilian soccer jerseys and Brazilian flags and cheering and having a great time, and, you know, patriotic event going in voting, and and the the the socialists, mostly lefties in Brazil over the last who knows how many years and they've run the place into the ground corruption, former leaders in jail Lula and all of this stuff and the crime is out of control the corruption is how to control the economy's out of control. So there they may be voting in this very Donald Trump like character, one of the people at the table said yesterday of the of the conservative type running in Brazil. Oh, yeah. He's the anti gay anti LGBT, anti immigration, anti anti this. And and always Trump like that might be the one time that Trump's name came up, but my Brazilian friend voted for him. But it for that voted for that person. So that's kind of fun. Also, did you see I sent you? I think I sent you the the pumpkin with Dr Christine Ford's face carved into it that I not send you that. We're gonna I'm gonna get this. I've got this Christine Ford, carved, pumpkin, and we will post that too. We'll post that one as well. All right. Let's go to because it's fun. Yeah. They wanna get rid of the electoral college. And I love this. They just we will the popular vote, but we didn't win the presidency. We need to get rid of the electoral college. It's it's you know, the old saying, it's a black thing. You wouldn't understand? I had a counter to that. I still have a counter to that. It's a white thing. I have a high level of confidence that with a brief explanation. You'll understand fully say and what I explained the electoral college functioned the importance of the electro college balancing power for the little guy in the United States, which is what the electoral college does. It takes power out of the hands of the powerful and puts it in the hands of the less powerful, it shifts power to the little guy. That's what the electoral college does in short. And and that's one of the many reasons that the electoral college is so important without the electoral college, the Democrats could forget about all the people the deplorables, you know, the working people of America about the Democrats hate so much that they referred to as irredeemable like Hillary Clinton does and deplorable the people in flyover country. That's that's the the Democrats just. Flush the toilet in their Gulfstream jets over flyover country, hoping they'll hit someone and and their contempt for the working class who they pretend to care so much about care. So deeply about has become quite clear evidence. All right. Let's go to let's go to audio. Let's go to sound byte number two. Mo- Yarborough used to pretend to be a Republican. He doesn't even pretend anymore, and he is one of the pigeon sisters on morning joke. The circle fest on DNC TV President Trump tweeted over the weekend about paid protesters, and there are many community organizer types, these left-wing groups, there are thousands of them and many of them are funded by George Soros. Who's not, you know, he's an American citizen. I guess is hard core lefty seeks to undermine our institutions by using his billions of dollars in ill-gotten gains to do that morning joke. This morning very upset. Now, President Trump tweeted over the weekend that they're fake protesters. George Soros funded and the Washington Post decided on Saturday, President Trump tweeted this on Friday and on Saturday, the Washington Post decided that to mention George Soros is anti-semitism. Now, the Democrats are dedicatedly anti Israel. Now, we know that Jeremiah Wright, you know, the Jews. Won't let me talk to Barack Barack Obama hanging out with the calypso Louis minister Farrakhan with Jeremiah Wright for twenty years died in the wool anti-semites. That's all fine. He started Obama started his political career in the living room of William Ayers, and Bernardine Dohrn who are anti Israel up. The yin Yang pro-hamas. The Blake break the blockade stuff in there. They're anti-semites is that it's not just anti Israel. They are anti-semites. But I digress. Any suggestion that George Soros is paying for this has been deemed to be antisemitic because George Soros is also Jewish see and the national socialist German Workers Party tried to murder his family like socialists dead throughout the twentieth. Century murdering everybody in their path morning joke. This morning with Mojo himself Friday. President Trump falsely claimed protesters were not notified by their concerns that five paychecks from billionaire George Soros instead, quote, very old tired anti semitic. Very anti semitic..
