Let's just bring it back to today in this country.

Ruth Bader GINSBURG. The first Jewish woman to sit on the nation's highest court Justice Ginsburg died on the eve of Russia China after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. In the days and nights following her death the steps of the Supreme Court have become an impromptu memorial. Thousands of people have gathered to express both grief and gratitude leaving flowers, writing messages and chalk lighting yard site candles. Some have even blown show far in her honour Ruth Bader GINSBURG was not only unapologetically Jewish but she and her experience as a jewish-american really guided her work. The Biblical Dictum Setback Sabatier Dove Justice Justice. You shall pursue adorn the walls of her chamber and the Word Setback Justice was embroidered into one of the lace collar. She famously war with her robes though tiny person justice GINSBURG was larger than life a Jewish hero and an American and feminist icon she stood for gender equality and racial justice and modeled fighting steadily for what you believe in. Her famous friendship with Conservative Justice Antonin Scalia showed that you can disagree and still get along. She was a role model for so many people, but it's important to remember that she had role models to in two thousand and four justice Ginsburg spoke at a Jewish women's archive event marking three, hundred, fifty years of Jewish life in America. She talked about some of the Jewish women who inspired her. One of them was Henrietta sold. Zolt was born in eighteen sixty in Baltimore and like Ginsburg was both visionary a doer who faced in overcame many obstacles as a woman. She founded DASA and helped build the social service infrastructure of what became the state of Israel. So here's ruth. Bader. Ginsburg one of our heroes talking about one of her heroes, another inspiring Jewish woman from history. In my growing up years, my mother spoke of glowingly. Though new had to say no.

Celebrating #BlackJewishUnity Week with the National Urban League

"Next week, two of the world's foremost human relations organizations the National Urban League and J. C. will unite against surging levels of Anti Semitism and racism to declare black Jewish unity week. Together, we will strengthen ties between our nations black and Jewish communities and combat all forms of hate. To discuss the importance of this event and to talk about the challenges of fighting racism I'm joined now by Clint Oda, the National Urban League Senior Vice President for Policy Advocacy and the Executive Director of the Urban League's Washington Bureau Clint, thank you so much for joining us. It's a pleasure to be with you. Now this special week, this black Jewish unity week is not happening in vacuum. It's happening because of rising antisemitism and racism in this country my listeners here plenty about antisemitism. So I just wanted to start by asking you this. It's been a Helluva summer. How are you? I would describe myself as weathered a little bit. We've been going through this quite some time this summer at least the notoriety of these police incidents are is much higher than it has been in the past. So we're we're hanging in there. We don't have a choice. Because this work is so important. And it really does reinvigorate me to see that we've got allies in this fight and we've always had allies in this fight but to see them step up in the way that they have his really reinvigorated me and I'm very excited to keep the fight going. I'm sure that our listeners are familiar with the name, the Urban League because it is etched into the annals of history of this country and anyone who knows anything about the civil rights movement will know the names of the Urban League of the ACP Snick we can go deeper also start really getting to the deep cuts. Tell us a little bit about. What the Urban League has been up to lately and what you've been up to especially over the summer in the wake of the George Floyd killing and other events in recent months while we're one, hundred, ten year old civil rights and Economic Empowerment Organization and we have been working on I'd like to say ending systemic racism for the past one. Hundred Years. we've been doing that through our programs such as making. Housing more Ford audible teaching people how to purchase homes how to stay in homes. We've been helping people to get work meaningful work they can sustain them and their families. We've been working the traditional voting rights area and civil rights area for the entirety of our existence but social justice is taken on a real importance in our work right now as as well as doing all this work in the midst of a pandemic So that's so interesting what you say about systemic racism and then specifically citing home-buying and things like that. You didn't mention education, but I think there's a pretty robust education. Portfolio at the National Urban League as well. Absolutely I think if you look at AJC's goals and National Urban League goals, you'll see mirror images of each other. That's been the real cool thing about this that this partnership and all of these things that people are talking about and I'll show my millennial miss. All of the things that people are are posting on instagram talking about explaining what systemic racism is and why you know wealth divides between black and white communities are so important and underpin. So many elements of of racial injustice today all of those things are things that the National Urban League is. Working on absolutely and I can't say that when I started about a year and a half ago I spent the previous ten years working in the United States Senate including four vice presidential nominee Senator Kamala Harris. I believe crazy how these things happen working for her and the agenda that she pursued is so consistent with the work that I'm doing today. One of the first things we did when we walked into the place is lead a resolution condemning hate antisemitism anti racism xenophobia homophobia. It's as important to her as it was to me and so coming here was just a natural extension of that but. As I was saying just the Times in which we live are so unique and perilous parallels between the early nineteen sixties which I'm sure we'll talk more about and today are really really compelling. It's almost like we're back in the sixties again, I want to go there right now because this week is going to be all about black Jewish. Relations and the story of black Jewish relations is not a new odd. We might be writing a new chapter, but there's a whole book that comes before us here. So what's one element clint of the Black Jewish relationship that has meant a lot to you personally. I would probably say the religious and spiritual aspect of the relationship. Growing up as a as a young kid in the deep South. There were a lot of Jewish people around although they were president. We didn't know it I grew up Protestant Christian and a great story is on Sundays. We were always able to use the parking lot of the temple across the street and it used to just puzzled me is to how generous the temple folks could be. Given that they must have services on Sunday to. Eat of the temple was empty or they were just being generous over time and as I moved out of south, then went to law school and live here on the East Coast I. got a much greater appreciation, not only for the religion. My Wife, for instance, used to teach at a Jewish day camp in new Rochelle New York but just meeting. So many friends of the Jewish faith drawing those connections between my own faith and their own and. Also learning the rich history of black Jewish communities especially in the era of civil rights as a lawyer was a big fan is that really don't have you could come up with a Thurgood Marshall and no understanding of the work at the end of Lacey P., Legal Defense Fund was complete without understanding the role that Jack Greenberg played and lots of other Jewish folks in philanthropy in spirituality and pursue the nonviolence movement just a wonderful partnership over the years. As a religious person myself that resonates with me a lot as it happens our listeners probably talk about this before for college I went to a joint program between Columbia University and the Jewish illogical seminary and actually not migration at the graduation of the class ahead of me which attended representative John Lewis spoke, and of course, John Lewis all of our listeners will remember passed away this summer I think he actually was an ordain ministered and he told a story that I'm sure you've heard before because I've heard until it multiple times of preaching to his chickens in Troy. Alabama and that had a certain resonance in this audience of basically all Jews including some we're going on into the rabbit. Those ties between our communities where were not everyone is a person of faith but certainly, there is deep faith and religious history kind of threaded throughout our communities I think those are really really powerful things to focus on. And I hope over time you take a look at surveys of religion in the country in other pugh has done some study in this area religion is trending down a little bit. Don't always necessarily consider themselves religious if you look at community surveys and so it's really important to reinvigorate this relationship and put it on a firm spiritual pudding in Judeo Christian tradition is so rich in the African American community and there's just so much there to really build on. I'm really looking forward to getting that history more prominently understood and remembered in our communities. So when we're talking about black Jewish unity right and we're talking about building black Jewish unity they're really two levels to it, and this is something that we talk about with a lot of our advocacy work. At AJC, there's the grassroots and there's the grass tops right. I want to ask you about both. Let's start with the grass tops right at the high profile level at the celebrity role model level, the politician level what do you think? Needs to happen there to demonstrate the Jewish people and black people should work together and are stronger together. The grass tops may be one of the more important roles in unity and understanding. We are a celebrity driven culture for better or for worse and ideas have a lot more resonance and a lot more acceptance when someone that you know and admire to saying the same thing. So grass tops to that extent are the key in moving opinion. Notions like reparations notions like black lives matter notions like social justice have mood and pretty quickly I think because athletes because celebrity on television and other artists have been saying the same thing and in a short period of time we've seen. Opinions shift in this country not just age not just religion not just race, but everything seems to be moving in the right direction from a popular standpoint. The grass roots which we're going to talk about next is where you really determine how sustainable this movement is. Right. Yeah. So tell us about that I mean in our neighborhoods and our schools in our churches, our synagogues mosques, how can we strengthen those relations? Sure. I've seen a lot of encouraging evidence that we can do this at grassroots level. This is a very human. Very, empathetic movement when we're talking about grassroots, we've seen some of these grassroots efforts come up in. Pittsburgh for instance and New Jersey. And in Brooklyn where when horrible acts of hate murder violence take place the communities come together and they usually come together I with religion. It's the pastors it's the churchgoers. It's the temple goers that really give me some hope that we aren't just a moment, but that we're in a movement. So I think in many ways, the church and the faith community are are in central piece of grassroots. That's kind of what I'm seeing sort of on the ground right now I think black Jewish unity week can drive those grassroots even deeper because understanding the tragedy of the moment is not nearly as important as understanding these deep historical ties right in our faith and our families and what we want from each other in shared history sometimes things that aren't so great sometimes shared history of oppression. Lutely, and for our listeners WHO WANNA learn more about black Jewish unity week, they should go to AJC, dot org, slash black, Jewish unity, or text black Jewish unity all one word to five to eight, eight nine not to keep hitting the faith note here you know we're we're a pretty secular organization in JC but I love what you said about the houses of worship I live on the upper west side of Manhattan which is this incredible. Kind of Jewish bastion historic whatever and if you go twenty blocks down for me in twenty blocks up for me, you probably are GonNa pass by twenty synagogues total and we're also steps away, I mean. We're a mile two miles away from Harlem and the two neighborhoods are very different and that's something that's worth exploring as well. Why that is how that happened etcetera, the strengths and the challenges of both communities, but I was in synagogue on. Chabad after the shooting in Muncie and Lo and behold there in the front row, was a a delegation from church in Harlem that wanted to come in and to be there and to show solidarity, and they got up and spoke after services, and then fast forward to this summer were all obviously in lockdown. But the rabbi of the synagogue made kind of Zoom appearance at that churches services after the killing of George Floyd talk about solidarity with. The black community in the wake of the killings of and Taylor George Floyd and so many of the challenges of injustice that are being faced right now and I think you're right that the grassroots level it. So often does start in those kinds of houses of worship, our religious leaders reaching out one to the other in something that you said, really struck me about the proximity of Latte community and Jewish community in relatively small plot of land. As a policy Wonk I'm sure you appreciate this but either just for the benefit of your listening audience, blacks and Jews were both subject to the same kinds of redlining restrictions in many ways throughout much of the United States where banks would identify areas and they would say this is a desirable area in this is a less desirable area, and so you know Jewish and black families were often circumscribed by these lending lines that still have an ongoing lingering vestige today. If you look at housing segregation patterns certainly in the African. American community they are just as bad as they were in the nineteen sixties things like bike homeownership, which is at a low point especially because pandemic in or closures any fictions Is Worse than it was in the late nineteen sixties. So some of these things we were still wrestling with they seem twins dental, but they're not incidental at all. But again, it's this proximity you know that gives me hope and hope that even outside of crisis, we can expand and strengthen these relationships crises great reasons to get together but it's the more sustainable relationships happened over time outside of the crisis built on shared values and shared interests. So once again, this Jewish unity week has the potential to to be a real game changer. Well, so talk A. Little bit more about that. What do you hope is going to come out of this week if you believe that the basis of a better relationships and greater understanding comes from exposure than my hope is that we can use this week to focus on our rich history on our shared cultural values and to help understand things that we may not understand about each other but to be able to come together in a safe place and talk about those things, this has been tried in lots of different ways you know with lots of different impetus over the years. But in this country, as you know until you can make a sort of a holiday of it until hallmark starts to sell. It really difficult to have something that is stained and that you can go back to know every year. and. So that's the thing that excites me the most I know how excited I was to leave the south. And to meet people of different faiths including the Jewish faith and and get to know them get to count them among in my close friends. I would like that for everyone and so that when issues come up in our communities as we saw in Brooklyn I think earlier this year there was a really terrible assault in Brooklyn by a woman African American woman and if we had a built in long standing. Unbreakable trust between our communities. We can weather the storms we can come together and mutual condemnation, mutual understanding and mutual healing. It's not enough just to condemn something, but it's more important. I think to learn from it and make sure that it doesn't happen doesn't happen again and then five years hence, we can be sending each other black Jewish unity. We cards produced by hallmark absolutely creating whole new language in a around. It, it could be it could be urban slang and Yiddish expressions that. Unless you're in the know you don't you don't know. I'm hopeful hallmark if you're listening. Might be onto something big year. We'll see we'll see what's things we can pull their. I want to close by asking you for a few tips for our listeners actually the few months ago we had an amazing friend of AJC on the podcast named Eric. Ward. The Executive Director of the Western states center. We were talking about racism and I asked him what he thought as a professional opponent of racism and as a black man, what he thought American Jews should be doing to fight racism. His answer was pretty surprising to me actually because he said the best way for us to fight racism was to fight antisemitism since in his work he's bound that white supremacist racism is always based on a foundation of Antisemitism. So I I'm just interested in your reaction to that I, I think I'm citing him basically correctly I'm interested in your assessment of. That and second I want to give you a chance to answer the question from square one. Also, you know what would you like to see Clinton? What would you like to see American Jews doing proactively now to be effective allies in the fight against racism and I WANNA go back to Eric's point. Let me see if I can make this one I. I've only recently come to understand the difference between anti-racism. An anti-discrimination has a lawyer I've grown up understanding that if you want to fix racism, you have to attack it as a matter of non-discrimination don't discriminate against people in hiring don't discriminate against kids in school, and sometimes that anti-discrimination is in the form of color blindness. So whatever the remedy is, it can't be race specific right because the constitution doesn't allow such a thing but let's let's just come up with big broad sweeping solutions that african-americans might incidentally benefit from. You know by virtue of maybe being lower middle income people, we're going to come up with solutions that will work for everybody including African Americans. I've now come to understand that that's just not cutting. It goes great disparities that you talk about the at the beginning their persistent for a reason it's like trying to perform surgery with your eyes close, but you may be able to route around and feel where the patient is but your ability to be precise with a scalpel. And and fix the problem identified at problems impossible. If you don't open your eyes that has been the character of how we approach race in this country for decades. I've now come to understand and have really been encouraging others to join me in. This is becoming an anti-racist. It saying I may not have owned slaves I may have never committed an act of racism or discrimination. Even if that's true. You have to personally get involved to fix these problems. It's not enough to say, well, you know we have laws to address those issues. Laws had been very inexact and very unhelpful. In many ways you've got to get in there, roll up your sleeves and say, okay, is lack of capital in the black community a problem I need to figure out how to get more capital into black communities are educational disparities problem. Okay. I need to figure out how do we improve schools whether it's funding whether it's through pedagogy whatever we need to do, but we need to come up with solutions that actually help. Like people. And not just. Continue to perpetuate these gaps in Hustle meeting well in educational opportunities and health and civic engagement. That's my biggest message to the community, the An anti races. Just. As you know, we should all be fighting against anti-semitism. It's not enough to turn your back and say, well, you know they're not talking about, knee they are talking about you. And it's when we get to the point where those protests and in the halls of Congress where we're trying to make change we see people who look like you see people who would like me and seek people or Asian and and people who are all different walks of life saying we are here because we care and black lives matter and we've got to change the way this country works. I want to dive in and ask a million more questions and and talk so much more about where you just this conversation we are unfortunately out of time. So I hope that this will be an effective way to wet our listeners appetites for the week ahead, I should just add that in addition to his impressive titles at the National Urban. League clint wears another half. It's one of my favorite. Hats it's the hat organizational podcast host and Clinton is one of the hosts of for the movement the National Urban League podcast which people should check out and especially check out for this next episode where my colleague Dan Elbaum will be a guest on the show. We will link to the podcast in our show notes, Clinton let me just say once more. Thank you so much for joining us this week. She said thank you for letting me be here.

Republican Jewish Coalition official makes the Jewish case for the Republican party

"As the Republican National Convention dominated the news this week I sat down with Matt Brooks the Executive Director of the Republican Jewish coalition to hear him make the Jewish case for the Republican. Party. Just a reminder AJC is a five. Oh, one C. Three, not for profit organization that neither endorses nor opposes candidates for Elective Office Matt. Thank you so much for joining US Saffy. It's great to be with you. Thanks for having me AJC held a series of virtual programs last week at the Democratic National Convention and we're doing the same this week alongside the RNC you spoke at. An Age RNC program yesterday and you guaranteed the Donald Trump will win a larger percentage of Jewish vote in two thousand twenty than he did in two thousand sixteen. What makes you so confident of that first of all, my understanding of the politics of the Jewish community I've been doing this job for thirty years. So I think I have a very good feel for the Jewish community. But then the most important reason is to look at the record of this president There is no question that he has been without a doubt, the most pro Israel president ever in history. That's not coming just from Matt Brooks, but it's coming from people like the prime, minister of Israel has said as much in the Oval Office in meeting with them. So there's a reason why fifty six percent of the Israelis who were polled in a recent poll would like to see president trump reelected and only sixteen percent. WanNa see Joe Biden reelected because they understand that this president is absolutely transformed the US's relationship beyond that Steph. Touch on domestic issues I think people in the Jewish community are deeply concerned about what's happening in our big cities whether it's Portland Seattle New, York, the lawlessness, the rioting, the efforts by the left wing progressives in the Democratic Party who want to defend the police. I. Think People in the Jewish community understand that president trump giving his incredible track record. Pre covid is the best person to revitalize our economy postcode and also recreate and bring back all the jobs that were lost as a result of this pandemic. So I think there's a wide range. Of issues that both foreign and domestic that to me give me great confidence to have my back moment point into the stands and guarantee that this president will do better among Jewish voters and twenty twenty than he did in two thousand sixteen was the Yankee Fan I. Appreciate any reference to Babe Ruth let me just follow up on that though you pivoted and spoke about domestic issues at the end, which obviously are very important. You started out with Israel though I'm curious does the RJ see any kind of polling or anything like that indicates that the? Percentage of American Jews do vote based on. Israel. My sense is generally not at top issue for American Jews. So we do have extensive polling and we're very data driven in our messaging and how we look at the races you know, I think your point is well taken but you know elections and campaigns about mosaics. It's about putting pieces of the puzzle together. It's not just one issue. There is definitely a segment of the Jewish community that does care about Israel we're going to appeal to them. There's definitely a segment of the Jewish community that appealed issues. Like school choice we're going to appeal to them. There's definitely segments of the Jewish community the care about the issue of defunding the police and having law and order in our streets in protecting us against anti-semitism. So we're GONNA have various messages targeted to various constituencies within the Jewish community. Our community as you well know is not monolithic. So to say that there is one issue that's gonNA drive the Jewish vote would be a mistake but I think we have enough experience and expertise in this arena to make sure that we're serving up the right messages. One issue that you just mentioned Matt is is Antisemitism Joe. Biden actually laid the cornerstone of his campaign on President Trump's comments after the unite the right rally in Charlottesville in his video announcing his candidacy, and then again last week when he accepted the nomination, vice president. Biden cited the president's very fine people on both sides comment at which he saw as excusing anti Semitism he cited those comments as motivating him to get into the race to beat the president. How would you want Jewish voters to think about those comments? Well, I, mean, that's going to be part of our task and we've had several events both with Nikki Haley Mark Levin with Senator Ted Cruz just this last Sunday night you know in which we've talked about that there is a mythology that has taken hold by the Democrats to try and create a false narrative that the president Or somehow tried to give support to white nationalist. If anybody takes a step back reads the entire transcript and admittedly I wish he had been clearer and less awkward in his original remarks when we put out a statement to that effect. But if you read a few sentences before and a few sentences after very fine people on both sides, it's very clear that the president strongly condemns White Nationalist Neo Nazis, and you know it is absolutely unambiguous also to some of his other speeches in actions you go back and look right after the tree of life synagogue tragedy he gave a speech that day to the future farmers of America No. President no president go back and take a look at the record, and you'll agree if you read the opening speech, no president has ever condemned anti-semitism and planted a flag about us and our strong commitment to fight anti-semitism wherever it raises its ugly head, and then obviously you look at what the president did it on his executive order to help protect students on college campuses who have been the victims of anti-semitism and I will tell you time and time. Again, this president has by action demonstrated his commitment, not only to condemn white. Nationalist Neo. Nazis. But also to stand up and take strong stands against the rising antisemitism in this country.

Election 2020: Biden's VP Pick

"There's plenty of general reporting out there about each of the possible women who Joe Biden might pick to be his vice president. We're here now to understand the Jewish angle for each of these impressive women to learn what American Jews should know about each of these candidates that might make them more supportive or concerned. So we're going to go one by one and get the Jewish angle from our guest Jacob Corn Blue, the national politics reporter for Jewish insider. Jacob. Thank you for joining us to be back. Let's start with Comma Harris a former candidate for the Democratic nomination a popular senator from California the State with the second largest Jewish population in the country. What's the Jewish angle on Senator Harris? First of all, she married to a Zionist of that Iraqi gets her a Jewish scientist. Yes. So that gives an upper hand in this Jewish of IPE stakes I think that Kamala Harris gives a lot. She adds up to the ticket number one just because she was a popular candidate and people. So her at the start as a rising star and somebody who can really take this to the very end unfortunately it for ourselves she didn't win the primaries should take on. Joe. Biden pretty early which gave. That rise in the polls in the only of twenty twenty. I will say that Biden. Biden comes to see who is preferred choice for Veep Kamala Harris has a big name recognition. Is Obviously arised star and her background, a label as being a black woman from California. But was so high tides in the Senate and in the Jewish community. So the pros are out. The cons are that I'm not sure Biden Israeli looking for someone on the ticket would potentially overshadow him not because Harris Donald understand that if she's on the ticket, she's number two and she's there to serve the presidential nominee and possibly the president. But Because Camera Harris ran on the same slop because she is a bishop you know she can overshadow him in media appearances and potentially as vice president of being a little more independent and vocal than let's say, Dick Cheney and pence on camera beyond the you know the happy coincidence of the Jewish husband is there anything in particular that Jews should know about Senator Harris is policy stances? What has she? Done on issues Anti Semitism, what has she done on supporting Israel, other issues of concern to the Jewish community I guess close ties with APEC obviously. She's spoken at several APEC conferences but she also appealed to the mainstream of the Democratic Party She's not seen as a controversial figure amongst progressives say as someone who is too pro Israel for them she will reflect the same policies that Biden Obama and. Anybody, else running a Democratic Party other than on the an Warren's she would you know align herself with the second policy views? So I don't think she's outstanding. She's not too long in the Senate to look back at a record by think, she has a strong provisions record and she is aligned itself with the mainstream of the Democratic Party next, let's talk about political MIA fights, Susan, rice, Susan Rice served. As US ambassador to the UN in President Obama's first term and his national security adviser in his second going even further back in time actually I think I think she was the youngest ever assistant secretary of State She was you know thirty three or something like that when President Clinton in Nineteen Ninety eight made her the system secretary of State for Africa what did you need to know about Susan? Rice. Well Susan Rice first of all is A. Mixed emotions about Susan, Rice obviously, she has good ties with prominence numbers of the Jewish community and she has a record serving as national security adviser and embassador to the UN on their Obama Democrats SAPORTA. Mostly Obama's policy when it comes to how other than the last UN Security Council. Two, three, three, four, a resolution, and just mind our listeners about two three four why that was controversial. The only time when Obama. ABSTAINED ON APRIL then. All on settlements that you know really couldn't dent on Obama's record when it comes to a majority of American Jews talking about Republican Jews, all those. In Israel who soul Obama as being the more salt when it comes to the Palestinian issue. But Susan Rice obviously had a this overlap from being a national security adviser and the to the UN. Obviously, she was a controversial figure on this front. She was criticized by Dennis. Ross by the full hug combative style. When came to the Palestinian issue on the other hand, she has very strong ties with somebody like a Fox who is very vocal in his pro Israel stats

"Welcome to the amateur traveler I'm your host Chris Christensen? Let's talk about Bosnia. I like to welcome to the show. Canaan Charter, which who is coming from Bosnia and his coming to us from highlander adventures dot, be and has come to talk to us about Bosnia Herzegovina. Canaan welcome to the show. Thank you very much happy to be here excellent and for people who can't find Bosnia and Herzegovina on a map. Where are we talking about? Well. Everyone knows how to find Italy. It's a big shoe ships country. You have a boot-shaped country, so just go to the right side across the Atlantic Sea and we are right there. Well and your neighbor of Croatia. Bosnia you know goes around like little crescent moon. knoll on the West and south, and then these we have Serbia and southeast Montenegro. I to address. You're interested in making sure that people understand that. If they remember news about Bosnia, they may be remembering news from twenty thirty years ago when Bosnia was going through. A, war that's done, and that's been done now for quite a long time there there are people who are out in the working world who don't remember that and it's a wonderful place to go I. Want to say that I was anxious to do this show because we haven't done a show on Bosnia for a long time. And since then I have been to the country and loved it. So why should someone go to Bosnia Herzegovina? Well, there is a lot of reasons depending what you're interested in now. Bosnia is very complex country, but extremely small size of Pennsylvania, but inside. You have so much for the adventure seekers. There are so many adventure opportunities from Whitewater. Rafting canyoning to paragliding hiking is spectacular, and then if you're into history, we say that we have much more history than we can handle. Different Than Empires were here. We like to say where the crossroads or that where the meeting between the East and the West. Culturally very complex country, and also religiously we have Muslims, we have the Orthodox Christians, and we have Catholics with three big groups. Of course there's the Jewish community here which has been here since they were thrown out of Spain after Kista, so for five hundred years, all of these make this crazy, crazy and beautiful mix that very interesting for foreigners to see because inside I will for example and. And in many other cities in Bosnia, you can pined mosque Docs Church Catholic, Church and a synagogue literally in two hundred meter radius, and it's been like that for five hundred years while inside I will because that's how will the city is? And all of a Bosnia and we're very proud of that architecturally very different from anything else you can find in Europe you're GonNa, find this mix of. Of European styles as well as the optimum styles and a lot of course, local Bosnian styles in all of that mixed together will like to say that we are a Bosnian pots. That's one dish that we have. It's cooked in a big pot with a lot of things, mixed sight, and that's Bosnia a lot of things mixed, and it works perfectly. An Indian taste is fantastic why you should. Should visit Bosnian well. Whatever you choose. You're GONNA love it. If you're into history too much of it, you're into nature. It's absolutely stunning. It's fantastic, magic Pennsylvania, and then put inside the Rockies Grand Canyon Inca trail at a lot of other things as well a bit of New Zealand as well. We just like seaside. We have twenty four kilometers of seaside, so that's one thing with them have. And then, of course, for actually learning history or getting certain messages, let's say about life about history. How people live together or how they don't like each other, because while we had a lot of wars, let's especially in the last two hundred years. There's a lot of lessons that you can learn in Boston. Let's say war tourism doctors is now very big part of tourism in in Bosnia so if you want to learn about that, we are definitely to come to see what happens. If you don't defeat fascism, like most of Europe defeated off the Second World War and it actually shows how life can be both good and the bat also if you want to visit a place. which is completely different than rest of the Europe and very relaxed very laid back with fantastic food, most at a lot of reasons I think.

White Privilege In The Wellness Industry

"Hello, and welcome to Die Starts Tomorrow I'M SAMMY? Lean! And with everything that's been going on in the world this week. We want us to use our platform today to have an uncomfortable but berry important discussion we wanted to discuss white privilege in the wellness and fitness industry something you've heard US touch on before in past conversations, but have never quite delved into the full extent are today is someone who is very special to US Dana Samuel. Who Works at batches as our community manager and has been vocal in wanting to happen over? With, US about this for this episode, we wanted to hear firsthand experiences and give her the space to have a discussion about race in the wellness industry. Welcome, Dana. Hi thanks. A. Coming. So. We were thinking in the beginning of the episode. Maybe just first introduce yourself. Who Are you? Tell us how you how you came to Betcha. And just give it. Give everyone your background. Yeah so again. My Name's Dana I'm the community manager I also run the ones happy hour account. Came to bachelor as a friend, introduce me the company would we were in college and I checked every single week for new positions at applied as soon as I saw community manager obviously kill the interview, and here I am A. Member you dead yeah. Let's she. She's the one. Home, but yeah I've been with or year my general background quick life story I am a biracial woman. Half Black Half Puerto Rican, I grew up in predominantly white situations though I live in. A general area where there's a high population of Jewish people I went to summer camp at the Jewish community center. My High School I went to private Catholic high school so very commonly predominantly white areas and I feel like that's sort of in. All that's going on. I have a lot of white friends. Because of those situations growing up, and it's just sort of really brought my attention how? You know people who are in the black community are reacting all. That's going on what they're doing on and off social media how they're handling just with either with me or with other of or with other black friends or family, or what have you how they're handling? You know checking in on those people making sure that they're able to do something meaningful to help the cause so just before we get into the wellness piece of the conversation since you are. Passionate about wellness we're just wanted to. How are you feeling in general? At this time. Very. Tired in, not just like. Oh, I've been doing stuff all day. I'm tired type of way. It's something in a way I've never really experienced before I think that. I've been fortunate enough not to say that you know this is a bad thing if people experience it or that. I haven't had periods of extreme sadness before, but I don't think I've ever really suffered from. Depression on a deep level, but I imagine that some of the things that I'm feeling are connected to the. It's like constantly feeling fatigued and unmotivated, and even though even with works today I obviously. Am You know doing all that? I tell us if you were to to work. It's like really. Like tiptoe around that element. Not yet not yet. I know that I could. I could tell you if that was the case, but I'm not at that point, but definitely. Unmotivated in the sense of even. Working with editorial, they've asked me if I would want to write certain things, Mike. I I just feel like it would take me a full day to even write a short article, and that's something that's very unlike the I'm very fascinated. Typing in general coming up ideas, you know well. We're in things, but. Just feeling very very challenged in doing everyday things in regards to that, and then having to this sort of internal battle of staying informed which obviously I want to do, and obviously I've been doing but. It's it's hard seeing the same things over and over and over seeing all these you know, all these protests have gone left because of interference or people who were taking things out of context, urges seeing all these devastating videos of. Black Yoke, getting her or abuse, or whatever the case might be or people exploiting the bad things that are happening amongst the black community, making jokes out of it or making stupid Internet challenges, item it and it's. It's hard to to keep exposing myself to that every day, but I know it's something that. I have to percents because I can't. I can't rely. On others to keep me keep me knowledgeable in the way that I I. I need to be for myself.

Educating Developers About Actions on Google with Yksel Tolun, Google Developer Expert

"I know that you're a lawyer during the day so I'm curious. What got you interested in technology and specifically voice technology enough to pursue this on the side as well. I have been interested in programming or all my life. I have met programming by ten and ever since then I haven't interested in bed. I wanted to build things that many of us that got me into building web applications and then Iran's low school by Jack pursuing it. I always had this interest. Bod Bonding one. Good thing about not thinking about making money from development is that you get to pursue feels that are experimental that other developers might see non-profitable islands. One of those people lucky enough to have the time and the energy to proceed. These deals and none of them was check box. I read an article about chat bots on how Baber the feature of technology interfaces and I was eager to try Giant learn how to build one that got me into API and then it became glow. Got Into Google assistant and how I ended up before a psychology but when I made my first force application it literally spoke to me. I said this is what I WANNA do. This is what I actually looking for. You know ever since I started programming and hooked ever since I heard most hitchens in Bombay I love that. I loved it that passion has been there for so long one of the things you've mentioned before that's important to you is the ability to translate emotions and feelings of voice go from one language to another. Why is it something that needs to be thought about? And how do you suggest it be done? This is something I always but might ultimately shops because I actually talked to a group that is probably going to translate once chiller experienced. Run up there so this is really important to talk about. I've actually talked about this in another interview languages. Have you know small nuances? That can change. The entire experience was or changed the meaning so we need to think about these bad translating inexperienced. Because sometimes I translate inaction or experience or conversation and I think the centers. It's dramatic incorrect of that sad puppies. That's not how we say it. We should think about rewriting a novel. And you're trying impress the reader we should think about the person or the user is going to feel when they drafted this user experience. So it's really important or developers from station designers to take into account what's appropriate to say while language or some of the little idioms or maybe Faysal orbs. Y'All should really think about the conversational nuances before. Translating is skill or voice experience as really important. I'd actually off the boss Harry Potter on this subject before I'm GonNa do again airport Translation is one of the best translations. In my opinion I read in both languages and I'm really happy that I read it in Turkish because translators took the time so make the spells or made up. came up with sound like Turkish. They translated That makes sense both as Orban told towards usually they are and in a way that sound structure. That is a medically glocer. What I'm used to hearing it was really important for me as a child with a bellevue. things that sound but sounds like us and uses the voice of US bench Experience we should take into account and no of do our research before using Google translate or any other atomic transition dollars. That is a great point and I love to hear that Harry Potter translated so well. I'm sure that's a really interesting to read into different languages. It is. Yeah now you have done a lot of experience in organizing in mentoring workshops and hack Athans about actions on Google and evacuate done over thirty four events in two countries eighteen cities and that was just for two thousand nineteen. What got you started in hosting these events. And how do you usually run them? Walk me started is actually a GDP do not Jewish community is right. There will developer communities on the world and I was a part of Gijon Kara and at that point I was only the developing chat bots with API or other Alex Lowe with the names but stable like trying to host a Google Assistant Event. Just didn't have anyone to talk about. Who LOSES THEM OR D platform? So I checked out the platform and soul of that. I read the new technology behind it and I told them I could do this. Dan I did and they really liked it and they shared that I knew the stop other Jewish communities some of them called me and then after I realized people want to hear what I say. I applied a couple events and one another. I started doing this and I really liked the fact that finally I could give back to the community that has been giving to me our show long because I have learned a lot from developer my past and I really like the idea of being able to share my knowledge at passionate so this is what started however actually run them right now it depends on which event. I'm running if I'm running the workshop. I tried to keep the number of attendees in twenty to forty because after forty really yes crowded and I can't answer every question and I may miss some errors or others abuts between these numbers. It's really productive and I tried to start with talk immediate talk of because even though of you're doing a workshop people still need learn about voice. Revolution the actually able to appreciate the workshop itself vice stocked with mental. I talk about the whole human to machines reactions changing and then ice. Some statistics for people like numbers. I show them how the industry is growing and Ben actually talk about how many Turkish actions are there and why is such a big deal. Torreon developers to a field and get used to it or get good at it because afterwards start the workshop. I have a sector right now. I usually with one action. That can take one input and Ben repeated and then you take a step. Further in the next art buyer. Easy Take that. Inputs and do something programmatic in the fulfillment and afterwards they all try on their devices. That are it's android are and they're to go. That's the workshops that I hold for beginners and if I'm running more invest like for example with Jimmy did programming skills. I usually go one step forward and have visual opponents. Shown to them how you'd slide cards. Why you should can use our cells and such and such but sometimes we hold these special events very take the whole day and start with. Diallo Design Conversation Design To The programing part. So it really depends on what kind of man running. It's usually focused on getting the developers started. Because it's such a new field in my talks. I like to focus on many different voice expenses that you can bill not just. The voice skills are voice actions on the Google about smart home actions or other experiences that they can build in talks. I chunk of folks a number in workshops. I usually focused on the programming side or actress on Google.

US grinds to a halt as Americans lock down to stop the spread of coronavirus

"Coronaviruses freaking everybody out well in corona virus news the British health minister and conservative member of parliament parliament Nadine Dorries has been diagnosed with corona virus now so the health minister of Great Britain has coronavirus mystery says she's been self isolating at home labour MP Rachel Maskell said she's been told to do the same **** met mysteries that apartment health in Britain said mysteries first showed symptoms on Thursday the same day she attended an event hosted by the prime minister right now U. K. had a documented total of three hundred eighty two cases as of yesterday six people with the virus have died in the U. K. in the United States the total number of cases now has surpassed one thousand cases in the United States we have twenty nine deaths so far the the clusters are happening on the coast mainly in Massachusetts New York Santa Clara California and up in Seattle Washington the first known US front of Irish cases announced January twenty first in Washington state the pace of diagnosis has quickened significantly in recent weeks at the start of the month seventy cases have been reported in this country most of them tied to overseas travel since then new cases have been pouring in by the dozens and then by the hundreds the coronavirus updates are coming fast and furious the mayor of New York bill de Blasio he said that there are lots of cases coming in at like dozens per day in New York City as testing is made available it is obvious that there are a lot of people who are least carrying corona virus without knowing that they are carrying corona virus or the the German public has now been warmed up to seventy percent of Germans face the possibility of infection that's going to Angola Merkel and of course the top US health official Dr Dr Anthony Fauci he said this is going to get worse so Dr Fauci said all hands are basically on track with this thing these are really simple keep the workplace safe keeping the home safe keeping the schools safe and keeping commercial establishing safe this should be universal for the country everyone should be doing that where do you live in his own that as communities spread or not when you have community spread you obviously going to ratchet up the kinds of medications that you have but at a minimum this is the minimum that we should be doing so everybody should say all hands on deck this is what we need to do in a non shocking news thanks to again the up and down of the corona virus news the stock market in creamed again it's just up and down insanely was up like a thousand points and then is dumped again back down a thousand points pretty amazing how the stock market is bouncing around like a yo yo no we're not gonna know honestly where anything stands until the end of April Megan McArdle has an interesting column over the Washington post a lot of people might really like everyone is looking around going I don't see a lot of car owners out there yeah we had a grand total of like four thousand deaths worldwide if you look at the flu every year and kills like a hundred thousand people worldwide minimum maybe hundreds of thousands of people worldwide every year so why are we also worried about coronavirus Megan McArdle has this statistical dot experiment to remind you that when there's an exponential growth factor things move really quickly right you don't see anything in the C. everything right it let let's say you have a pond with lily pads example that you get statistically and it explains why were also worried today if you have a pond with lily pads and the lily pads are going to overtake the pond as they grow in each day the lily pads double the number of lily pads double so let's say that day one it's one to which to death rates for right to keep stumbling on the very last day the lily pads cover the entire pond the question is at what point did lily pads cover half the pond at what point it really has got a half upon and the answer is the day before they cover the entire contract if they're doubling every day and that means that half the town was covered yesterday and today boom suddenly the entire pond is covered that is how exponential growth works okay that is what people are feeling in terms of coronavirus is that we have exponential growth of coronavirus what you end up with is no one around me has it oops everyone I think that's it right that that that is what people are fearing is that sudden is that sudden object and this is what is being feared by the trump former homeland security adviser Tom Bossert he says hospitals are basically ten days away from being creamed he suggested in an op ed that we are we are in trouble in terms of our our hospital facilities as officials must pull the trigger on aggressive interventions said aggressive internet interventions put off and ease the burden on hospitals and other healthcare infrastructure and that of course is true as one of my wrists wells then the hospitals that need to be prepared as I already said mayor bill de Blasio said that things are happening intensely in New York City and the governor Jay Inslee has no restricted gathers more than two hundred and fifty people in king county as well as several as well as you know how much and Pierce counties which are the the biggest counties in Washington state that means no soccer games means no it means no baseball games it means that basically all major gatherings ought to be canceled according to Jay Inslee the governor of Washington state Dr foundry has suggested there be no crowds at NBA games so basically if you have tickets for opening day in the United States for baseball you can fairly bank that that is not going to happen why colleges are canceling events I would not be surprised if my college events this semester for example are canceled that would not be a great shock again I think that all of this makes a certain amount of sense like better caution and they have this viral outbreak you want to reduce the size of the the spread and the and the quickness of the spread is to give us time right now we're bargaining for time but we don't know what the death rates are on this thing we just don't and what that means is that every attempt to slow the spread of the virus buys a day for people to develop vaccines they're going to be more effective in slowing or stopping the spread of the virus of becomes just another seasonal problem instead of becoming an overwhelming threat to western populations so this is it it is in this light it is important to recognize that when the federal government fails along this along these lines you can be absolutely disastrous there's a a piece from The New York Times that is just devastating talking about how the federal government did in fact blow the month the president trump was a president trump said very early on we're shutting down travel from China and a lot of people unless I'm not this is racist on this is terrible ten people were saying you have virus when buyers is racist you can see when my wrist is a drum said no we're sitting down travel that was a very good thing it was a very smart thing was the right thing to do the problem is that only buys you time because it turns out that some people are going to get in and any other problem so what did the federal government do with a month and president trump bought them by shutting down travel from from when the answers basically nothing according to Dr Helen chew infectious disease expert in Seattle she knew the United States and not have much time in late January the first confirmed American case of coronavirus have landed in her area critical questions need answers have been infected anyone else according to The New York Times was the deadly virus already working in other communities and spreading as luck would have a doctor to have a way to monitor the region for months as part of a regional research project into the flu she and a team of researchers have been collecting nasal swabs residents experiencing symptoms throughout the Puget Sound region three purpose the test for monitoring coronavirus they would need the support of state and federal officials but nearly everywhere Dr Jew turned officials repeatedly rejected the idea interviews and emails show even as weeks called by an average margin countries outside of China where the infection begin by February twenty fifth Dr Chu and her colleagues could not bear to wait any longer they began performing coronavirus test without government approval but came back in from the worst fear they quickly had a positive test from a local teenager with no recent travel history the corona virus had already established itself on American soil without anybody realizing it Dr she recalled thinking it must've been here this entire time is just everywhere already in fact officials later discovered through testing the virus had already contributed to the deaths of two people guns killed twenty more in the Seattle region over the following days federal and state officials said the flu study could not be repurposed because it didn't have explicit permission from research subjects labs are also not certified for clinical work well now Jeannie affable questions doctor should others argue there should be more flexibility in an emergency very much so many lives could be lost this is correct I mean like if you give permission for somebody to do a nasal swab for flow and that is repurposed enables one for coronavirus I honestly fail to see how any reasonable person would consider that a violation of privacy I nobody must know that I had grown up at night they're not gonna release your specific rotavirus task it just allows the state to do something on Monday night state regulators told them to stop testing altogether the failure to tap into the flu study detailed here for the first time was just one in a series of missed chances by the federal government to ensure more widespread testing during the early days of the outbreak when containment would've been easier instead local officials across the country were left to work in the dark as the crisis go undetected exponentially now so I think this is from so now I don't I don't think trump is monitoring local level task I think this is the fault of the massive regulatory bureaucracy that prevents people from doing reasonable things it turns out that the federal government well it is well placed to issue brought national guidelines is not well placed to deal with local testing that has to be done it turns out the local communities maybe the the fastest to react to the sort of thing right voluntary shut downs right now happening across the country with regard to major public events and those are happening on the local and state level without the federal government even doing anything it turns out the people who see federalism is the obstacle to this sort of thing they're doing it wrong local and state officials are more answerable to local populations and are in fact more likely to request the people do responsible things in fact is that porn was yesterday in the in the Jewish community basically every pore institute that I've heard of in my area meaning every big poor meal with big gatherings lots of kids those were basically shut down voluntarily without any guidance from the federal state or local officials is so the notion that the federal government needs to be running this thing in extraordinarily top down fashion the federal government should be coordinating all the officials letting them know sort of the minimum of what they expect but standing in the way of local officials doing what they need to do to Tampa's thing down is a completely different thing and that is a testament to the stupidity of bureaucracy generally

Author Roth weighed in on 'Plot Against America' before TV series was adapted

"This is fresh AIR let's get back to Terry's two thousand four interview with Philip Roth his book the plot against America is the basis of a new HBO mini series that starts Monday the novel has been adapted by David Simon and ed burns who worked together on the wire Roth died in twenty eighteen no no president Limburg in your novel may be anti semitic but after he's elected he knows better than to just come out and say at any initiate a program that brings young Jewish children to the quote heartland to kind of initiate them in the ways of heartland American life he initiates a homeland program that relocates Jewish families to get a quote heart heartland places of America and nobody really knows the Jewish families don't really know whether this is really meant to be a way of opening up their horizons are broadening their lives or whether it's a truly anti semitic way of removing them from safe friendly neighborhoods and putting them in in communities that might be very hostile and it also kind of breaking up the Jewish vote by breaking up a Jewish communities did you imagine that for Lindberg to really catch on in America he would have to use euphemistic language for anything that might truly be anti semitic at heart and helps in the language of the you know the heartland and just folks in mmhm mmhm you know well they are it is ambiguous to know what the intention is of for instance to begin with the first one which is called just folks that is a program in which Jewish boys from I think ten to fifteen for remember correctly volunteer if they want to to spend eight weeks in the summer on a farm somewhere my brother goes to Kentucky networks and tobacco farm they can go to any any place that's available where they can do farm work and work they ordinarily wouldn't do what's wrong with that why is it mostly Jews and that's what makes people nervous put it on the face of it there's nothing wrong with it now we move on to the next program which is called homestead forty to nineteen forty two as opposed to homes at eighteen forty two which was the original homestead act that is something else according to that piece of legislation large corporations are encouraged to transfer their Jewish employees to offices in more remote parts of the country and in the face of this legislation my father whose company is going to move us to Kentucky quits his job our lives in a way that is more because that is what there's more coercive that is I would say a bit more ominous and may be Lindbergh handy shown a little more strongly on the other hand if that's all this guy does it's not too terrible you know the limber disappears from my book before you can do anymore so you never really know what he's up to and again that's what I wanted I you never really know what he's up to he's a kind of jam heroic statue who looms over the book after after limber disappears then all hell breaks loose but I don't remember nobody can even in that that homestead act you know that in which corporations relocate Jewish employees the letter that your father gets home in the novel is so euphemistically just read a few lines from it you know if you're calling in life is proud to be among the very first group of major American corporations and financial institutions selected to participate in the new homestead program which is designed to give emerging American families a once in a lifetime opportunity to move their house sold at government expense in order to strike roots in an inspiring region of America previously inaccessible to them well doesn't that sound great but you know as the family in the novel figures out this is this is the the government and the corporation joining hands to to coerce Jewish families to move it was great fun writing that letter yeah yeah you really got that cheerful corporate PR results down found out what it was like to be Dick Cheney yeah I it's it's it's it imagine most people would not I would be impenetrable they would just take it at face value my father because he's so committed again against liberty from the start refuses to to do with aspirin Philip's cousin you know your cousin Alvin in the book get who who is something of a hood Hey Taylor and wants to fight against him and you know the United States under Lindberg is not going to join the war but he wants to wants to enter it anyway so he joins the Canadian Army and fights against Hitler but he loses half of one leg in the war and returns with a stump that's covered in ulcers boils and scabs he moves in with the Roth family and a first it's horrifying to fill up he says it was bad enough that we weren't living in a normal country now we would never again be living in a normal house a life of even more suffering was taking shape around me any praise to the housekeeping guides to protect our humble five rooms and all they contain from the vengeful fury of the missing leg in thinking about the impact that this missing leg this stump would have on the young Philip Roth's life did you have anything like it anything comparable to draw on from your own life no I didn't I didn't I I had to think my way through it I think the only thing that comes close lineages I never had as a child when I was in the army and I guess I was in my early twenties I was in the public information officer will treat hospital in Washington and my job was to go out into the wards and get information about US soldiers newly arrived who were injured or hurt or whatever and then write a little press release for the hometown paper and they had a lot of amputees at Walter Reed may be able to reverse the center I don't remember but they had many entities and so I went out on the wards and and I talked to these guys it was a sad as you can imagine is just after the Korean War or I go down to P. T. within physical therapy and watch them learning to walk on the parallel bars and so and so I sold my shares of stumps and not just of legs and the pathos was overwhelming overwhelming and so I carried this with me I think into the block and I think it's why it maybe even when I came to me that in fact I haven't thought of it till till now but I think perhaps that those experiences had a lot to do with determining how often would be would be wounded author Philip Roth speaking to Terry gross in two thousand for his alternative history novel the plot against America was published that year he died in twenty eighteen a mini series based on the novel begins Monday on HBO adapted by David Simon and

Are you Medicare for all or Medicare for anyone? I don't know what you mean by Medicare for anyone. I believe in Medicare for all the way to get. There is to make a version of Medicare available on the exchanges, and if people like me right that that's going to be more cost effective way as well as easier way to get covered.

It's the condition of our democracy because every other issue we face every policy issue of which I believe the most urgent is climate.

Which among other things contains the role of dark money and makes it easier to vote into register to vote should be coupled. With other moves like serious action on money in politics redistricting, perhaps the electoral college, which I think needs to go. And. Because I think you do this in a day or even in one term, but because we've got to initiate those reforms before democracy gets so twisted that we can't fix anything. I've noticed that the female candidates have made a point of nodding to a policy proposal by one of the other female candidates in particular that they like so I'm just wondering what is a policy proposal that someone else's put forward that. You particularly admire there's tons of good ideas out there, and I loved the the wealth tax idea makes a lot of sense. I don't see how we get our revenue problems fix without doing that. I think that worker representation on corporate boards is very attractive. I think that the baby bonds concept or some kind of way to deal with liquid asset poverty is really important.

But I'll share mine. I was in Israel, not long ago, and you come away with as many questions as answers on one hand, you see you witness, the achievements of that society and on the other hand, I met nobody who could explain to me in the absence of a two state solution how they can be a Jewish state and a democratic state for much longer.

Increasingly being robustly debated among the American Jewish community, and we need to be able to have a robust debate which recognizes that support for the Israeli US-Israel alliance does not have to entail support for the Israeli right-wing being skeptical of the Israeli, right?

These issues are being robustly debated among other things by Israel, increasingly being robustly debated among the American Jewish community, and we need to be able to have a robust debate which recognizes that support for the Israeli US-Israel alliance does not have to entail support for the Israeli right-wing being skeptical of the Israeli, right?

Are you Medicare for all or Medicare for anyone don't know what you mean by Medicare for anyone? I believe in Medicare for all the way to get. There is to make a version of Medicare available on the exchanges, and if people like me right that that's going to be more cost effective way as well as easier way to get covered. Then that will be the glide path. Look, I believe in Medicare for all I think anyone who any politician who let's those words escape his or her lips ought to have some account of how you get there. And that I don't know if that's what you mean by Medicare for anyone. But that's my opt into it. If you want for all who wanted as the pathway to Medicare for all, okay? Most presidents get to do one or two really big things in every four year term. So what's your day one top priority? Given the world as you don't today democratic reform. It's the condition of our democracy because every other issue we. Every policy issue of which I believe the most urgent is climate. Every one of those will not get solved properly as long as our democracy is this twisted. And so a package of reforms resembling HR one that was passed in the house, but will die in the Senate probably. Which among other things contains the role of dark money and makes it easier to vote into register to vote should be coupled. With other moves like serious action on money and politics redistricting, perhaps the electoral college, which I think needs to go. And. Because I think you do this in a day or even in one term, but because we've got to initiate those reforms before democracy gets so twisted that we can't fix anything. I've noticed that the female candidates have made a point of nodding to policy proposal by one of the other female candidates in particular that they like so I'm just wondering what is a policy proposal that someone else's put forward that. You particularly admire there's tons of good ideas out there. And I love the I think the wealth tax idea makes a lot of sense. I don't see how we get our revenue problems fixed without doing that. I think that worker representation on corporate boards is very attractive. I think that the baby bonds concept or some kind of way to deal with liquid asset poverty is really important. I mean, everybody's brought forward. Good ideas. And I don't pretend to have invented any of the policy ideas, I propose I think my job is to vindicate them and help them gain purchase in the political space. We've got a question in the back for you. Senate blending fantasy seem to be the only politician whose perspective of the atavism Riley conflict. He's outside the mainstream consensus, are you? I'm asking you. If you have a different perspective compared to. Other politicians and in comparison to Senate devoting fantas yeah. I may not be fully conversant in his particular perspective. But I'll share mine. I was in Israel, not long ago, and you come away with as many questions as answers on one hand, you see you witness, the achievements of that society and on the other hand, I met nobody who could explain to me in the absence of a two state solution how they can be a Jewish state and a democratic state for much longer.

"You're the second thing about south side of the point you're in buffalo. Until actually the Cosco is. We've been there. It's a little hokey. But you gotta remember in these early primary states like Iowa and Hampshire won all of these people experience a lot of candidates. There's deluge of them in to any amount of human interaction in human touch helps. And so that's where that midwestern advantage lays in the early part of the primary, and I think pe- Buddha two dozen nice job having very human in normal interaction right here. That's something that I think he'll be able to use to his advantage throughout the campaign. A member of the Jewish community. And so one of the things very concerned. Is the media. Had Israel and wonder what your position on the field and Israel is. Yeah. So I was just in Israel in may of this year's or last year. It was my first chance to go. And I got a much deeper understanding of what's been achieved there. But also the complexity and the issues that are there. I don't see how advances America's ability to be an honest broker the situation there. So my initial impulse when I heard this answer, particularly this little line was boo. And I'm still very much at Booz after this. Because my position on Bedia is pretty clear, I'm in favor of it. I think boycotts are good. Just generally however in mild defense of cheer. I think that he's not wrong in the little twisted. He puts on at the end of the sentence, which is very mitigating because technically he saying not that he's objectively against boycotts. Divest mints, insane Sion's. But his argument is charitably that doing Bedia doesn't help increase the perception among is really that were honest brokers now, my response to that is I think the credibility gap such that exists right now is more exacerbated on the Palestinian side of the equation. Then the. Israeli side of the equation. But I get it. I mean, let's flip the argument around right would boycotting divestiture and sanctioning the Palestinians. Help in gender a sense of trust among the Palestinians, the answer. There feels pretty obviously. No. And some of you might even saying to your podcast right now. That's what they're doing. Right. And where's the trust gap right now? It's pretty big. I do think that is Railly's with I hope support from members of the American Jewish community can confront some of the challenges that are ahead when it comes to how you can be Jewish state and democracy and be safe and continue to be a great ally to America and play the role that they have is the world's only Middle East of Crecy. But I think that's you know, in many ways, I left that trip with more questions than answers and awareness that any simple solution is not going to cut it when it comes to the future of the Middle East. Get ready for more answers like that throughout the campaign. Pain here that was basically the multi word equivalent of Israel and a thumbs up because people is going to make that a centerpiece of his campaign. I he strikes me as a moderate, right? He wasn't gushing about it. He's never been there until recently and probably did it because he knew he was going to run for president, and you need to at least make some sort of stop over in Israel. But he does not seem like someone who has invested a ton of time or energy into advanced in the interest of the Israeli government throughout his career. And so I think he would be very much within the mainstream of the democratic electorate and get ready for more answers on Israel throughout the campaign. That are going to require a Dakota ring and will probably did their down to be non-answer. When you get to the end of just like this one was. So I am also part of the community specifically, I am non binary. And so politics can be very hostile place for people who don't identify as scissor straight, and especially if they aren't white. So what would you? So what would you say is has been a your inspiration for continuing to pursue politics?.

"For three more of the victims of the deadliest attack on the American Jewish community ever committed on US soil, the suspect in this weekend's massacre in that Pittsburgh synagogue, pled not guilty today to forty four felony counts is pleading not guilty. He could have pled guilty come to sort of sort of plea agreement specifically maybe in an effort to try to avoid the death penalty. But he's pleading not guilty. And he told the judge today that he wants a jury trial, and we will see how that works out for him in the court system a lot of things could happen. But presumably at that jury trial. He's thinking at this point that he'll be able to mount what all of these guys fantasize about when they see themselves as justified righteous killers defending the white race. Presumably he will want to use his jury trial to make a public argument in court that he thinks will persuade the country into rising up for a race war. Right. Make his public argument in court for why his murder of all these mostly elderly Jews in Pittsburgh was necessary. And even patriotic right? He'll presumably wanna make that public case before the jury. That's what these guys always want to do. And we know that he wants to make that argument publicly because he made that argument at length over a period of weeks and months online before he finally went ahead and loaded guns. And did it. The suspect in the Pittsburgh massacre waxed in eloquent and in all caps for months in age-old clan, and skinhead style that the Jews are out to destroy white people by promoting immigration. So as to dilute the white race to dilute white, racial, purity to undermine white racial majorities weaken the country by making it less white, right? That's the that's the white nationalist connection. Right. That's the connection. They draw between the be afraid of the terrible terrifying. Diseased immigrant hordes coming in and the Jews are probably paying for it argument. Those are two halves of the same argument, the racial purity people the white nationalist people. They have always connected. Those two things the immigrant hordes are coming here to dilute our racial, purity and undermine white power in America and the Jews are arranging it because the Jews are out to destroy the white race. That's that's there are. Argument, and it has been as far back as you can count. That's why the Pittsburgh massacre suspect was ranting about the caravan of migrants coming up from Central America. And also simultaneously ranting about the need to kill the Jews to stop that invasion that he was so afraid of. And that was his argument for why you said he had to do it. He pled not guilty in court today. But that is what he's already pled online as his justification for this past weekend massacre..

The case was scheduled to have an evidence hearing today but federal prosecutors opted to take the case to a grand jury.

"Last night. He he tweeted it as well. This is an invasion of our country. This is after the massacre. This of course, is part of the president's big push weeks long pushed to try to make the central issue of the election this year Republican voters fear about a group of Central American migrants who were about a thousand miles from the US border. The guy who carried out the synagogue murders in Pittsburgh had ranted online about the same migrant caravan that the president and conservative media have been stoking all this excitement about now. I don't know if the suspect in the Pittsburgh massacre has TV access in jail. But since he allegedly committed the worst attack against the American Jewish community in the history of this country saying you had to do it to stop this invasion of our country that the Jews were facilitating. Well, since he's been in jelly probably likes what he's been seeing on TV. If he does have access to TV in the president held a political rally just a few hours after the massacre that same night. The music star ferrall Williams now says he may sue the president for playing the song happy at that rally, which the president did which was just a few hours after the massacre since the killings. The president has continued to echo the online claims by the suspected murderer about our country being invaded. He's insisting on saying that at every public appearance now after the suspect in this case set online before he won in killed all of those people that it was to stop the invasion. The president has been insisting on calling it that since the national Republican party has also decided since the massacre to keep running an ad that depicts a democratic congressional candidate as being secretly controlled by George Soros, Jewish billionaire who Fox News and President Trump have turned into a boogeyman for almost everything. But in particular, they are now regularly all day long blaming him blaming store. House Saros for somehow secretly orchestrating. That's opposed caravan invasion, nothing about George Soros getting a pipe bomb in the mail last week a letter allegedly sent by suspect who's now also in custody who appears to have been a Trump superfan. Nothing about that has apparently caused any sort of pause. Any slowdown in the attacks on George Soros, not only from the conservative media, but from the Republican party nationally, which is still running that anti add even after the pipebombs. Also since the massacre in the synagogue, the president has announced the deployment of thousands of active duty US troops to the US border to stop what he is continually calling that invasion there. There's no invasion on the US border and sending as many troops to the border. As are currently in Iraq won't change that. It turns out when you call it an invasion when you try to rally. Everybody about a fear of an invasion turns out, lots of people across the country have different ideas about what might be a good way to stop that invasion. I mean, what could be too extreme. If the country is in fact, being invaded by shoeless moms and kids who were thousand miles away. The Fox News channel has now. Recently started claiming that these invaders are bringing disease that they specifically have smallpox. That they're coming coming here to kill us all with smallpox and stuff. These individuals come from all over the world that have the some of the most extreme medical care in the in the world, and they're coming in with diseases such as smallpox and leprosy and TB that are going to affect our people in the United States smallpox was radically from the face of the earth in one thousand nine hundred. But, you know, hey, you gotta do what you gotta do FOX. It's interesting did realize after they broadcast those claims on the air that the caravan was bringing smallpox and leprosy, and they didn't realize they broadcast those claims on the other. They might have a little bit of a problem with what was a sort of there. So they did go back to clean it up sort of assure their audience. I know what you just heard here. But actually, maybe who knows. Earlier in this hour. One of our guests said some of the people in the caravan may have disease is like leprosy and TB. Will we want to say we have no way of independently confirming this, and we wanted to clarify that point for you..

"The American Jewish community for everything it stands for and contributes to our country. He adores Jewish-American says part of his own family. The president is the grandfather of several Jewish grandchildren. His daughter is a Jewish American and his son in laws, holocaust survivors. Sarah Huckabee Sanders, giving an emotional press conference today, you could tell it affected her and over the weekend in when this happened as we tend to do is we want to start blaming other sides, and I've said it over and over again this there's no side to blame. Here. The person who did this is responsible. If you look at any of the stuff that this guy posted which could thankfully, most of you haven't he didn't like Trump thought Trump was controlled by Jews hated said he would be caught dead in a maga- hat isn't making America. Great again. He was no fan of this guy is the person who's responsible. President Trump has a son-in-law that's Jewish his daughters converted to Judaism. And he's got grand kids that are Jewish. He is not a hater. They tried to get him. I saw this weekend. Like, a Gotcha question with the ambassador, the US ambassador here from Israel. And they just they shot him down and said, look, he's the biggest supporter that Israel's ever had. So that talk, and I think a lot of people would step back and say, yeah, you know, it's kind of ridiculous. This guy hated everybody because he hated himself. And it sounds weird to say, but he victimized himself in his own mind. He was a victim of everybody else's success. And because of that the Jews the blacks anybody here that was foreign those people were the people that were victimizing him. And because of that he was angry. He was getting back at the fact that he was a loser. And I think that's what people need to understand in a situation like this where where we want to in this day and age we want to go out, and we wanna find blame. Sometimes we're looking for answers, right? Like, we look out there. We want to find some sort of answer to to something because it makes us feel better. What was the question? The question is why. In vegas. Do what he did. Well, that guy seemed to be off his rocker. And God only knows why. And I don't think we'll ever now. And that's one of those we have no idea, but for a person like this or the guy who shot up the people in Kroger last week. It's because the fact that they're losers. They're full of hate. And it's everybody else's fault. They're full of hate everybody else's fault. Is the reason that they have failed at life. And because of that they have to get back and this is their way of getting back. You can't start putting the responsibility of individuals on anybody. But the individual who carries out the crime. Absolutely. I agree a hundred and ten percent. And you know, this is where you know, I listened over the weekend and some people draw tried to draw the line between Trump and his divisive rhetoric and stuff like that. And nobody again when it comes to divisive rhetoric. Everybody's got a part to play in it. Everybody has said something tweeted, something we all have some little part to play in this. But the reality is this guy. It goes it it's deeper it's easy to see. He's a loser. No friends doesn't seem to have too many family members. Emberley come out. I mean, he's got nothing. And when you look at the tweets, it's all because everybody else has kept him from getting what he thinks.

It appears the American people reject hatred, bigotry, prejudice and violence. We're a nation that believes in rigid, religious, liberty, tolerance and respect. And we are a people who cherish the dignity of every human life today. America grieves for the precious lives that were cruelly stolen our hearts ache for every person who lost a loved one the eleven Jewish Americans who were horribly murdered represented the very best of our nation. They were brothers and sisters who looked out for each other. They were doctors who cared for citizens invade. They were proud grandparents who taught their grandchildren value faith, family and country, and they were the religious heart of the tree of life community, our nation mourns, the loss of these extraordinary Americans. And we also pray for those who were wounded our hearts are with the four brave. Police officers who were shot and injured while trying to stop the attack. We thank God for these officers and for every member of law enforcement who responded swiftly and bravely in the wake of the attack. We have witnessed Americans have every faith and tradition coming together to mourn with their fellow citizens to support one another and to stand in solidarity with America's Jewish community.

The president said over the weekend that he could tone off his rhetoric. What what does he mean by that any concern concerted all his words could inspire provoked? Trouble people do awful things certainly the president wants. In moments where our country is hurting like we've seen in the last several days find ways to bring our country together. And we've seen him do exactly that. However, the president is going to continue to draw contrast, particularly as we go into the final days of an election, the differences between the two parties particularly policy differences, you'll continue to see him make that contrast. But he has certainly I think found those moments to bring our country together, and certainly focus on some of the things that all of us can support and all of us can condemn as well, but he's also harshly attacked some of the very people that receive those platforms and this morning suggesting that the news media is responsible for for the anger in the country. How does he do that? When in the face of the pipe bomb. This was somebody who waits to Trump rallies. This is somebody who had a fan covered with with attacks on the media and praised for for the president on the shooter. A Pittsburgh is somebody who was. Provoked? It seems by the caravan the president spent so much time talking about why is he out there? Let you say trying to unite the country Wisey out there. The very very first thing that the.

"American Jewish community are in shock and grief denied after a Saturday morning massacre during services that are Pittsburgh synagogue, eleven worshippers were killed six. Other people were hurt four of them responding police officers. This is the most terrific crime scene. I've seen in twenty two years with Federal Bureau of investigation members of the tree of life synagogue, conducting a peaceful service and their place of worship were brutally murdered by gunmen targeting them, simply because of their faith. Bob Jones is the special agent in charge of the Pittsburgh office of the FBI which is leading the investigation into the history of the alleged gunman. His name is Robert Bowers. He now faces twenty nine federal accounts, which could mean the death penalty. He's also expected to face Pennsylvania state charges had been shot. They believe he was shot by police officer. But didn't have one hundred percent confirmation. He was taken to a local trauma center where he was described in. Fair condition. So one surmises that he would be able to be able to talk to investigators. But the US attorney would not tell us one way or the other. If he I don't think they wanna let anything out of the bag this early on in the investigation. CBS news correspondent Bill Rakoff in Pittsburgh and with more about the suspect Bowers, George Salim of the Anti-Defamation League has an extensive social media profile, which clued numerous posts and rance of an anti-semitic islamophobic, xenophobic nature.

"What's happened here in this country over the last eighteen months where suddenly you see, you see a citizenry realize, oh my God, I gotta pay more attention to what's happening because our leaders are determining my future and my fate. And in Israel, you, everybody lives this way. Everybody lives with it is what I always say. There's this mindset of I have if I'm not paying attention, you know. I'm putting my own life potentially at risk. I'm being a little overly dramatic, but I always have gotten the sense that there's just this. Extra? I don't. I don't know if I'd call it fried combined with. Bigger or something that the importance of boy, I have real duties as an Israeli citizen. Yeah, you know, that's all true. And I think it's because Israel Israel is, I've always felt that they're under siege, and in many ways they are. They are. You know, there's any two countries I've been to it. People always ask you. So what do you think about country? What do you think of Israel? And when I was when I was living based in Rhodesia a long time ago before it became Zimbabwe. The white folk there would always say, if so, what do you think that Rhodesia? So those are the only two countries? No, you go to England or France or Italy, nobody says, what do you think of Italy? It's obesity. Wonderful. And I think there a little better. I'm I'm continually being asked today by Americans. What does the world think of America today under President Trump? That's an interesting test, isn't it? What it is because you know it's changing. I mean, it's I think America's row view. The view of American. The world is changing very, very quickly and dramatically because of you'll eat up. So let me ask the uncomfortable question that a lot of my a lot of debates in my family, which is the American Jew versus the Israeli these days, and I feel like the split between the American Jewish community and the and the and the Israeli. I don't know what to call this, but sort of these sort of the pro Israeli or the fight yet Israel crowd that there's such a, there's a growing distance. How concerning is that to his railways? It's a great question because normally, you know the questions normally phrase. How can how concerned are Americans Jews about Israel? If you turn it round as you just didn't say how Israel is about that distance of them and I can, I would say not that concerned that the majority of Israel now it's very clearly set right-of-centre to right wing, and I don't think they couldn't kill it. I think they probably couldn't care less what American choose thing. And that's they care more. So does that mean they care more about American evangelical than American Jews? Well, they certainly realistically getting more help from support from they believe they are getting support from the American evangelical, and there was a shift in that direction yet. It also made it sort of a dopey shift in a way because because. In the end, the Jewish world and Israel closely linked, and the fact that many American Jews moving away from Israel because it tend to be a little bit more liberal than Israel is becoming should be very concerning to Israelis. But I would say they're not that concerned fatty. And certainly the leadership of Israel clearly is not that concerned about what happened. We liberal Jews in the end that's gonna rebound dramatically. The Beavis close relationship with with President Trump is good for the in the short term and the long term. It doesn't bode very well. I was just going to say BB made a decision that every other Israeli Prime Minister tried to avoid which is taking sides in American politics. Yeah. And I think that was that's clearly going to be generational mistake, but it's doing he's doing very well at the moment for Israel and and in bieber's defense by the way, I'm great defender BB, but in beebees defense, he has done tremendously will in sales of managing the relationship with America on at the moment, the way things are.
