Fresh update on "amy mcgrath" discussed on Fake the Nation
"Mail. Said they live next to Kentucky and they really want to hear US talk about Amy McGrath them in the race against. The Ninja Turtle who I believe is being referred to as Mitch. McConnell. and. I just saw horrible poll that Mitch McConnell is seventeen points ahead of amy McGrath on that Tori any any thoughts about that race quickly any thoughts you're asking me about Kentucky Oh yeah. Just like do you have any thoughts on that on Mitch McConnell being so ahead and then raised Horrible Person. Is One of the central handmaidens that have allowed trump to do whatever it is that he's wanted to do history will remember that trump as the bumbling idiot in the White House but McConnell as the intelligent person standing behind him who constantly enabled him and as Jeff referred to earlier this is not it's not all about trump the he is a symptom of a Republican Party that has been going off the rails for several decades. McConnell predates trump and what he did with Merrick Garland is sort of a preview of the sort of. Ignorance of the constitution ignorance of democratic tradition inch in ignorance of democratic norms that we've seen from the trump administration. So McConnell has been part of that the whole time I wish that. Kentucky's would wake up and see that he is not in their best interest but it looks like he's either going to die or they're gonNA have to find somebody to the right of him to get rid of him. because. They stay continue to like him and they continue like trump and Kentucky as well. Jeff final thoughts on Mitch McConnell Aunt Lydia in. I can tell if they cancel the college basketball season before election day there'll be a chance that Kentucky will turn against him. I O. Stand because we've basically lost pandemic pay. You know we don't know what's going to happen with it. Because, they're not doing anything in the. Right these Mitch McConnell just was like, yeah, guys go take your recess whatever will come back. You know some judges will hang out. Three and a half days to figure it out. It'll be fine. You know. So if people are suffering in Kentucky and wondering if they could get a little extra help in the form of pandemic pay on their unemployment insurance. That's stats squarely on McConnell shoulders right there that you're not getting eatings that to me is when Marine Le Pen was not elected in France they said one of the key reasons why she wasn't elected in France's because they don't have Fox News they don't have a major cable news outlet that's constantly lying to them, and I'm sure that if you looked at the penetration of Fox as opposed to other. News outlets in Kentucky. It would probably be seventy eighty percent of how people consume their news. So in Kentucky, they're not getting the message that Mitch McConnell is the actual reason why you're not getting your unemployment insurance they're getting the message that Chuck Schumer, Evil Chuck Schumer, and Nancy Pelosi are the reason why you're not getting it. So just having so much of the country be fed constant disinformation from Fox. As well as rush limbaugh Mark Levin on and on the rest of them. That's a huge problem to having a functioning democracy in America. And also Hashtag less Fox News more baguettes can we just be more like France in that regard? Can. We have more like France in many regards anyway guys I lived in Paris for a time in my life. It's a big deal. Okay Let. US move on to topic number three, which interestingly I feel like everyone's been itching just sort of talk about this. Now, we will directly talk about this. Because I've been wondering, what is the case for Donny's reelection like there has to be a case right and one has made the case. But you know. Hugh Hewitt. Was Up to the task and he's a known conservative pundit look him up. You'll recognize this face he's been talking on the televisions forever he wrote a piece in the Washington Post. Called the case for trump will come down to his record. It's a strong one that's what he wrote. What did you? What did you learn about the case for trump would? Honestly I want to understand what it is that voters might be attracted to right now in his record and maybe that'll help us combat the situation right? Because none of the three of us were voting for him. So. So Jeff, did you what were your feelings about this piece? Like what did you learn about his? His. His his record I commend Hugh Hewitt on his lifelong commitment to a satirical character. The extremes. It was laughable. I mean he basically left out corona virus he left out the last. I mean he mentioned the China Virus, a couple of times. It's like saying Oh the airplane flight was great until we hit the mountain like the pilots did a great job on autopilot. It was just. It's comical. To think about how many people are going to use that type of argument to make themselves seem intelligent and thoughtful when it's it's not even Cherry picked it's like cherries picked and then replace with some other fruit. It's just Nothing. I am trying to sit there and understand besides confirmation bias and people just dug into the tribalism of parties and and the misinformation that talked about besides that that large group of people which scary large group like who might be quote unquote swing voter how could you possibly vote for trump at this point?.

Paul Miles News Radio, 8 40 Yes, the creator producer writer and after of the Dick Van Dyke Show, has died. Carl Reiner passed away last night at his Beverly Hills home. Reiner was inducted in the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Back in 1960. Reiner was 98. Your next news Update US following Governor Bashir's briefing at four I'm Suzanne Duval News radio 8 40 W H help. Mercy. O Welcome aboard a news radio, 8 40 w. H as Terry Minors here thought of Eyes on Kentucky today. In fact, the hashtag is all eyes on Kentucky. That seems to be a bit of a stretch. But people who Live and breathe. Politics have been watching the Amy McGrath, Charles Booker race and others. But obviously it's to see who pops up in the Pez dispenser of politicians to challenge Mitch McConnell in November. We have our answer. It's Amy McGrath, former fighter pilot. What do you make of the closeness of the race between Amy McGrath and Charles Booker? You know, from Amy's perspective, it's going to be very disturbing. You know, she she's in the establishment. Take all along. Had the money had the name but I only get to 45%. I think I saw somebody tweet out that a Democrat has not broken 50% statewide since 1992. That's gotta be a little troubling, especially when you're getting ready to face. What is the mountain of McConnell his? You know his pundits, his supporters his cash flow. It's going to be tremendous, but I have surprised how close it was. McConnell's detractors always go with the same hashtag ditch Mitch and it seems like it's a warn thing. It's like it's been tried not six times prior. Because the first time he ran he was running straight up, but the the five other times that he's won since his original victory. That was the phrase that was used, and I always tell these campaigns each time try something new. That's not working, and then so we have Moscow, Mitch. It's like the whole Russian thing has has been shown to be. Mostly nonsense. I mean, even though now we're hearing another wave of Russia, Russia, Russia about Russia paying Taliban fighters putting bounties on American soldiers, It seems like a fruitless pursuit. What sort of a strategy should McGrath's people put in place to try and gain traction against Mitch McConnell? I mean, the honest answer, Terry. I don't think there is there is not a winning strategy against bitch. McConnell in my mind, you looked back at the variety of opponents that he's faced. And people said the same thing right When Alison Grimes, you're like, Oh, this is the she's the chosen one. And she couldn't even answer who she voted for for president and it is it up thinking her campaign and to me from zooming way out. If Amy McGrath cannot ride the blue wave of 2018 into office, there is absolutely zero chance for her to beat McConnell when he's also going to be running with Donald Trump. On the ballot and probably one of Trump's strongest state. Why would Chuck Schumer go in so early with Amy McGrath and I'm not taking it? Amy McGrath? I'm just trying to understand strategies and that's your line of work. So why would they go in so early? And miss an opportunity to back someone like Charles Booker, who has youthful mo mentum and an African Americans perspective and so many other elements that Amy McGrath apparently does not have. That's a great question. I think there's two answers. Or the 1st 1 is that when when the establishment in these committee extension arms of the Senate parties pick somebody they thinking two things. How long is it going to take to get appropriate name I D. And how much money do we need to raise the beat the opponent and so Amy was kind of an easy choice because she came so close against Andy Bar. She seemed to be popular in her district, so they thought, well, let's just run her statewide and forced McConnell tohave to spend more of the Republican money on his own race rather than Trying to help some of the other vulnerable report Republicans across the country, but they no one could have predicted what was gonna happen with George Floyd. What was gonna happen with the Corona virus, and I think this is a very incumbent friendly. Environment because people tend to run to what they know when they're scared, and they're uncertain and I think if you look at McConnell's track record over the last six years, I just don't think there's any question that he I think he may break 75% in this race just because he's delivered So much for our state. Doesn't Amy McGrath need though? Charles Booker on stage with her a lot to try and convince his enthusiastic, energetic crowds that she deserves his support. Absolutely. I love the way you put it before the break. He needs to be her running mate. Because the Democratic Party of Kentucky is fractured Right now, the fact that he almost over took her in less than two months time. You know, we talked about the last time politics is timing, but the fact that he came so close They're not decided in that party who their persons. Mitch almost got 90% so it's very decided to do the Republicans are behind. And I think she absolutely needs them. And I'll just make this note. It's fascinating to me that the Democratic Party of Kentucky has yet to nominate an African American candidate and the GOP in Kentucky has not nominated not only one and two but elected to So I find that very interesting in the current environment that you're right. Charles has to be out there. He's got to be full throated, or I think Amy continues to limp to defeat. And your references to Daniel Cameron and Janine Hampson. That's exactly right. Yeah. Okay, um Charles Booker's got an interesting windshields to stare through now, because he has this moment. Um he's got national attention right now, and he can't just walk. Away and not make some noise. Pretty soon, I think so..

State Senate seats is it feasible to win a majority in the Senate in twenty twenty without some drastic measures like turning the Dakotas into novel, no novel suggestion or statehood for Puerto Rico. What do you think then it is possible to win the majority in twenty two, and we're going to have to have a lot of things go our way. And unfortunately, for you know, it would have been easier. Had we been able to hang onto a couple more of those Democratic Senate seats, particularly Florida and either Missouri or Indiana that would just made the math easier. But yes, it sort of drama insight straight twenty twenty to do it. But even if we are just so people know what the hell, so we probably end up with Republicans. We'll have fifty three seats unless you know. Of course, there's a chance we went to sippy, and then it's fifty two seats, but let's say for sake, it's fifty three states that they have if Democrats win the presidency and twenty twenty we need to flip three seats. Because then if it's tied vice president breaks the tie if we don't win the presidency when you just flip four seats for no the presence that we have bigger problems flipping four seats the targets in two thousand twenty Colorado.

There's a larger point here, which is demographic trends in population movement trends in this country make life hard for the Democrats in the long run in the Senate as more young people move to urban areas in larger states, it just becomes hard to ever even sniff the sixty seats we briefly had beginning of the Obama presidency. And so there we we have a very the Senate is a huge problem for the Democrats over the long term any situation in which Wyoming has as much power as California or Idaho as much power as New York. We're going to be. Be in big trouble. Which is why I have been an advocate for a while of making DC estate because I can fuck it promise you that if devoted like Utah.

We we were pretty sure it's Indiana Kentucky Kentucky close according to NPR half of conduct closes at six. And that includes a bellwether race. That includes a race that everybody should be paying attention to the incumbent Republican in the sixth district of Indiana Andy bar and Amy McGrath the challenger. So that's a race that. Will be could be aside of good things to come or another catastrophic. Well, we're going to see it when Lexington comes in. And we'll Yarmuth seat be safe.

Kentucky six it has Andy Barr congressman Andy Barr against Amy McGrath. It's a district President Trump while by sixteen points in two thousand sixteen obviously a bellwether one of the things we were talking about during the break is the Democrats. And I know this is much to your Sagren. The Democrats have done a pretty good job when it comes to candidate recruitment. Democrats did a phenomenal job. He'll look at Ralph north or mid Virginia, Connor lamb, Amy McGrath. These folks could be Republicans there served in the military conservative values. This is going. This is the kind of a war going on inside the Democratic Party progressives or kind of old blue dog Democrats where where where's the direction of the party, and this new congress if they if they do take over is going to have a pretty interesting mix of both and there'll be a kind of a battle. But the the Democrats have done a phenomenal job getting great candidates. I'm sure you disagree with guys Republic. Right. I do something. But. Mind. I mean, listen variety is the spice of life and far be it for the Republicans to talk about the disruption within the Democratic Party. They got they own disruption going on battling their own president that proves to talk about the economy. But yet contains to talk about immigration, but they are not Republicans. They are Democrats, and we are looking for a big night it really hold off the president. And it's going to happen in the house. Joe, let's talk about Virginia right now. Barbara Comstock, congresswoman Barbara Comstock, she's one of the most vulnerable vulnerable members of congress in the country right now, if she can hold on there that will indicate I think that is a red wall as opposed to a Blue Wave. But that's that's a tall order. Yeah. No. If that happens that would tell people right off the bat. If doesn't mean the Democrats can't we can't take the house maybe long long road to get there. This is a district that we need to pick up coming from the democratic side that we, you know, this one is one we're all res sort of county, I know people to keep voting out there. But, but this is one that if we don't pick up this one, it's it's problems trouble. And Amanda, one of the things that we've seen in the way that President Trump has chose to to present his closing argument, as it were is that maybe he's serving to rally his voters who like this very negative anti documented immigrant message, which is the plate way of putting it, but it hurts people like Barbara Comstock in northern Virginia..

"A S. All right coming up next hour at eleven o five a special edition of the twisted view. We're doing it today because I'm off the rest of the week. We're also going to do real or fake at eleven thirty five. So we got the whole kit and caboodle ready for you for today. And then I'll be out Thursday Friday. What I think Joe Elliott is in tomorrow and Friday is that right? Or is it we have Doug Kelly. Doug, kellyanne. Okay, Doug, Duggleby and tomorrow and Friday, and then I'll be back with you on Monday. Okay. Represented. Andy bar represents the sixth district over in central Kentucky. He's running for re election against Amy McGrath's. She's a former fighter pilot in the marines. And she is a democrat. She's very much to the left of Andy bars. Inclinations we have invited on the show. I like to talk to her. I like talk to her about being a fighter pilot. I think that's pretty cool. Fact, she's a female that did it is even cooler. She would be I guess we have two members to people running for spots in congress that are female former fighter pilots, Martha mcsally who's running. For Senator McCain seat in Arizona. No, I'm sorry. Jeff flake seat in Arizona is a former fighter pilot as well. And she flew combat missions in in Iraq. So that's interesting anyway. I've invited. Amy McGrath is I wanna talk to her. But she told me she was too busy to to do media. And then I saw her all over the media. So apparently, she's only only got time for friendly media like the courier journal or the herald leader anyway. She's also running an ad. This is ironic. Claiming that antibody is afraid to debate her because he turned down the opportunity to debate her in a situation where the moderator would have been on the same side as Amy McGrath. So that wouldn't have been fair. But she's now saying that he's afraid to debate her. So we'll get to the bottom of that. As we bring him on the show. Now, congressman Andy Barr Kentucky six district. How are you, sir? What's going on? Good morning. How are you? I'm good. Are you afraid to debate AMI McGrath? No. In fact, we want to debate when we're looking forward to debating I've accepted that too televised. Live televised debate and has accepted at least five maybe more. Now live in person forums with organizations like the league of women voters to the farm bureau's the county base farm bureau's the chambers of commerce around town. I had not heard my opponent accept any of those. My my understanding is that the only debate that she has accepted as the k- t- debate. We want debates we want as many many as we can. By the way. I'll just make it invitation here will be happy to have you debater right here on this show. We'll see if she responds to that invitation. How's that? I'll accept that right now. Okay. Let let me let me get into a couple of things here. First of all the big news. This week is cavenaugh. And I know you are in the house and not in the Senate. And that's the Senate that deals with confirming supreme court justices. But can we all agree that the timing of this is quite suspect? With the. What what I would say is is that obviously an accusation like this and accuser who who comes forwards. She deserves to be heard if in fact, she wants to be heard and judge Cavanaugh certainly deserves an opportunity to respond to such an accusation. And he deserves an honorable process. What we what we're hearing this morning, though, is that Dr four D accuser no longer wants to come forward and testify. All right. This is the Senate issue. The house isn't involved in the confirmation process, but I do trust at the Senate will do its to reaching a conclusion in this matter, the chairman of the judiciary committee, chairman Grassley has said that the judiciary committee is flexible and has the capacity to be flexible, obviously, the proceedings can't continue if the accuser is unwilling to come forward, and and and testify. Yeah. Absolutely. Is there an update on that this morning? I read an article early this morning, and it may have been from overnight that that they were trying to change the terms of her testifying the accuser that lawyer was like, well, he'll testify but not Monday. And whenever I guess, I guess they were gonna lay out the turn. So are they just now saying they don't want to do it at all? Well, you know, as I said before judge cavenaugh deserves a fair process. If if the alleged accuser wants to come forward and give her her story, then she should be entitled to do. So but. The process needs to be expedited, right? We understand what we're hearing a right now is that the the lawyers for the accuser are wanting another FBI review the thing about that is that would everybody knows with federal judges, particularly a judge like judge Cavanaugh. Here's been subject to multiple multiple FBI investigations to date. But ultimately, the judiciary committee has the has the inflammation. And they have the discretion to ask for a refresh or another FBI inquiry on this matter if they choose to trust the Senate will will respond appropriately and given given the information that they have and and and then need to wrap this up. They need to do what they're what their constitutional responsibility is. And I trust that process. Yeah. And two things on that too. I might understanding is the FBI the. Diane Feinstein handed that letter to the FBI, and they were like, well, there's nothing here. And Secondly, well, they weren't they weren't dismissing the accusations were just like there's nothing we can do about this. And that's kind of the other point. I was going to make is that thirty five thirty six years on there's no way to prove anything. It's literally he said she said, and so I don't know what good and FBI thing would do other than to give the give the Democrats and opportunity to drag this out and browbeat a guy who has in all other terms, very good character. And in all other sources say that he has very good character. So you have an accurate an accuser that doesn't remember how she got to a party doesn't remember where the party was what house it was ad or how she got home. But. And has conflicting number of assailants in her own testimonies are in her own statements. And now is saying you know, that she wants to dictate. I mean, I I don't I think this whole thing is the timing of this is very suspect. And I agree with you that she should be heard if there is an accusation. But I also believe that if you're going to respect an accusation like this the the way to the way to not respect that accusation is to hold onto this letter until the very last minute after all the hearings are done as Dianne Feinstein. Apparently, did let's move onto taxes. There's a there's a Bill out there that essentially would make the individual tax cuts permanent. I urge you to vote. Yes. On this. Will you? Well, not only while though. Yes, I've already voted to make the individual and small business tax cuts permanent. And I'm a cosponsor and original cosponsor of legislation that would do just that. I think you have to start here by reviewing the history of of the tax cuts and jobs act to begin with. And and the only reason why these individual and small business tax cuts are not coming into Bill is that Senate Democrats refuse to work with Republicans to make them permanent. You know, when we sent out Bill the house passed Bill over to the Senate, the individual and small business tax cuts were in fact, permanent. The Senate changed at the Senate. The Senate was forced to use the reconciliation process, which only requires fifty one votes as opposed to sixty votes to pass the Bill and they had to use that process because they didn't have Senate Democrats to vote in favor of tax cuts, and that process limited the overall size of the total tax cuts, which is what necessitated a limitation on the duration of these provisions. But at. But but obviously eight years of tax cuts is is a real tax cut and anybody who doesn't say that those are those eight years of tax cuts are real must not be committed to extending them. After eight years. We are committed to extending them beyond eight years. I co sponsored a Bill after the tax cuts and jobs act was put into law signed into law. I'm back. Original co-sponsor of the Bill to make the tax cuts permanent beyond eight years, and I've been encouraging and urging our leadership to put that Bill on the house floor as soon as possible. I am told by the chairman of the ways and means committee who had a meeting with last week that we are moving in that direction. Awesome. DC that vote will come before the midterms. That's for that. I want to go before the midterm start to be candid with you Leland. We only have what we think is one more legislative week, right? My understanding is that the entire floor time next week is going to be consumed with the continuing resolution and another minibus appropriations Bill to try to beat the September thirtieth end of the fiscal year. And I do think we need to get as many of those appropriations bills completed before the end of the fiscal year because we don't want more dysfunction in the budget process. And guess what? We're actually this year. We all. Passing appropriations bills built the house in the Senate of passing appropriations Bill bills on time and ahead of schedule. And that's a good thing. Yeah. Well, congress have our tab you back on here shortly, and we'll reach out to Amy McGrath and see if she'd be willing to come on and debate you so that'd be that'd be great. And just one final point on the tax casts working. They are working one point seven million jobs created since the tax cuts wages are rising at their fastest rate. In a decade. The economy is booming. And as a result of our policies median income families in the six district of Kentucky have three thousand dollars. More. Take home pay so wages are going out. Tax cuts are meeting people getting to keep more of what they earn and the economy is booming as a result, and we're very happy about a arrest. Relation of American prosperity. I've seen it in my paycheck. And I am seeing it in the job market. I am seeing it in in the confidence. I'm seeing it in the upbeat aspect of the. Economy, and I think people need to to to to absolutely pay attention to that congressman Bart. Thanks for your time this morning. Thank you very much. All right.

"You have to watch it. It's funny. I loved that. And then I also watched Paterno the HBO movie with Al Pacino about Joe Paterno, which was really interesting, and I watched Victorian Abdul, which I believe you record recommended to me a million years ago. I love Victorian, Abdul. What did you think of it? I thought it was very good. I really want to go back and watch which I also think Judy dishes in this one too. I want to go back and watch the one about John Brown. Like when she mentioned him in the movie, have you ever seen that one now? It's supposed to be really good. I'm going to go back and watch that one too. I think, but I really do love it. I thought it was a very sweet story. I, I'm, I'm really interested in Victoria because I think she, I watch, you know, the Victoria television show too. I just think her sort of I'm gonna do what I want. Make it happen and like her growth into that role is so fascinating. And then of course you did engine everything. So I thought it was great. Would you recommend Paterno? Yeah, there was a lot of really interesting things. I didn't know. I thought his sort of chill. The role of his children was interesting and like they're like, wait in his his sort of they're coming to realization of what happened, his sort of not understanding what a big deal. This was he only got two months after it happened, so he's pretty old when it came to light and knowing the plotting of the athletic director, the president of the college. I've said this on a podcast before, I'm so glad those days went to jail. They should. They needed criminal consequences for their behavior in this whole in all of this. It was. It's just so disturbing on a much lighter note, I wanna have a TV show also Chattan. I just started watching making it with Amy Poehler in the government is this in filler, it looks so cute. It's adorable, it is all of the Loveliness of the great British baking show. With its that meets parks and rec, right? It's the British baking show meets parks and rec. It's in this cute little barn. I would watch Nick Offerman, read the phone book day. There's they're easy row things about Nicole from and that I don't like. So it's perfect, and we actually watched the premiere and said, Jane will love this. And so Jane, my daughter is seven. She is such a Crafter every square inch of our house would be covered in tape and tiny pieces of paper that she has cut into something if we didn't stay on top of it. And so she watched the first episode is delighted. She has asked us when we can watch the next episode together as a family, the in the first episode, they had to make an animal that kind of symbolize to they are, which prompted her to go get some scraps of leather and create a lady bug for herself.

"I care about the constitutional place of things. I think the issues in Kentucky, I think the issues in parts of Kentucky, you know, central Kentucky is a vastly different place than northern Kentucky where I live. We share a lot where I live or western Turkey abroad grew up. I mean, so I, I think it is really important to emphasize local government state government. I think the federal government has a place where I think we've really gone off the rails on the Republican side even before Donald Trump. Is acting like, because I want to restrain federal power. It must mean I want to never pay a dollar in taxes to anyone, and I'm thrilled to pay taxes to support my local library. You know, I think there is a place for government. I'm not a libertarian. I think there's a place for government, but I think there is a place for each type of government and that keeping that type of government restrain to its proper role is really important. And I think that what's going on right now with the Trump administration is like why to be conservative one. Oh one. If we're talking about my brand of conservatism, you know, because you can Zine how quickly the power of the federal government can be wielded in really damaging hurtful ways. So that's where I'm coming from. And the the problem for me is that I don't have a lot of places to express that. I would never the attack ad that was just made about. You could have been made about me if I were running. Republican primary. They could have lifted quotes from this podcast. I'm pro choice. I'm a feminist, you know, they could have done the same thing with me. So there isn't really a place for me right now, except I think trying to choose good leaders who I believe we'll go to Washington and actually lead versus just be a continued part of trying to appeal to the base so that they get through the next election cycle. That's interesting. I think we have, you know, just from this that what you just said, we have a lot more in common in it. You know, I'm a democrat, but, but you know, Beth, when I hear you, I'm unlike in the same. I believe the same way you do and I look at somebody like President, Bush last Bush, you know who increase the size and scope of the federal government in a big big way after nine, eleven. You know, this took us to war didn't didn't didn't ask the American people to pay for it. It at all. Got us into more a bigger deficits. That's not fiscally conservative. And so I wonder also, where is the Republican party in unite wasn't independent for many years. I wasn't always a democrat, I, you know, I am. I'm obviously democrat today. I'm very proud of that in have been for for more recent years, but I just feel like I, once I understand the balance, I think we need balance, but I agree with you. I don't know where the Republican party is today in doesn't stand for fiscal conservative ISM at all at all. And I, I'm worried about that because I do think we need a balance. And in I, I want to be the voice of reason, I guess up there so. And I do believe what you're saying with the executive branches had too much power. That's one of the reasons I think we need a new authorization to use military force amid we've. I'm at work for seven teen years, and congress has punted it, you know? And it's just it's, this isn't. This isn't what the constitution says..

"And I think we need to have a healthy debate in our country about this. You know the the Taliban. Enough ghanistan is basically a failed state and in failed states. Those are the places where these non-state actors. Okay. I e Al Qaeda thrives and they are able to grow and they are able to train. They're, they're not. They're not there. A lot of the, the nine eleven attackers they were. They were from where Saudi Arabia. They didn't train Saudi Arabia because Saudi Arabia kicked them out. So they went to a place where they could train, and that was a failed state a state that has no security a state that you know, they basically have no rules. So I think that's why Afghanstan matters because we can't allow it to go back into being a failed state where radical non-state actors can train and potentially tried to harm us. I think that's, it goes all the way back to that. So that's, that's what I would tell him in in, you know, we in this is why we have to care what happens in the rest of the world. We have to care about. About I was talking about climate change is a national security issue. Why? Because we're going to mass migrations. We're gonna see instability like, we've never seen it because of that. When when you don't have any prospects in some of these parts of the world, you turn to these radical groups who promise you the world and then train you to be a suicide bomb. You know, I mean, this is this is what's happening, and so we can't afford to look the other way we cannot afford to be isolationists. We do not live in a world of nineteen hundred. We live in a globalised world where you can get anywhere very quickly where we have, you know things like biological weapons that can move very quickly from somebody who's been in the security sector my whole life. I look at these things and I, I know what it's gonna take to mitigate them, and a lot of that is robust diplomacy. It's people in our government understanding. What agencies like the US agency for international development does in not turning away, not turning in saying, this is not a problem. I'm not saying we can fix everything in the world, but I'm saying for own security, we cannot look away from some of these things. Absolutely. Well, it's like the hierarchy of needs at you're talking about though. I think so often with voters, like in Kentucky because like your aunt Belmont because they don't feel hard on the most basic things affecting their life. They can listen to maybe things they should other be otherwise paying attention to. What do you feel like as you're going through the district? What are you hearing that people were frustrated about that they just don't feel hurt about? Well, I think of all of the frustrations healthcare, and there's there's a basic fairness issue where people are frustrated who who believe on both sides of this issue, right with healthcare. There are people who are frustrated that they have to pay a lot of money, and they look at other people who. You know are under a system that don't pay much at all, and they just see it as a basic fairness issue, which I understand. Like I think that's that's the like I'm really trying to understand what the right, you know, because I'm I'm a democrat, I'm I lean left, so I really try to understand what the right is saying. I think that disagreement on healthcare is the answer to that. I believe it's also our system is completely unfair right now..

"As the last part of the section will share what we're great before, Beth, what are you grateful for this week? I am grateful for Joe Biden's new initiative called as you are. That's being conducted three, the Biden foundation. This is a campaign to collect stories from LGBTQ youth, parents, siblings, educators, and allies, and it educates the public about how we've come a long way on LGBTQ rights, but we really need to get into more affirmation and acceptance and support. Now it's not just legal rights. It's also the fact that we still have very high suicide rate. It's and depression rates among this population. We have a lot of homelessness among this population, and a lot of that is because of family rejection and community discrimination. And so the Biden foundation intends to share research and best practices and stories. And the first video coming out of this campaign is absolutely beautiful. I think this is a wonderful way to use the platform that Joe Biden has, and I really appreciate that he's doing it. Well, I wanted to express a moment of gratitude for first Lieutenant marina a hero. I thought this was inappropriate one for Amy McGrath's presence on our show. She is the leader of a platoon of roughly thirty five men, and she is the first woman in the Marine Corps to lead an infantry platoon. So there's been a lot of opposition to women leading platoons in the past. She said, I wanted to do something important with my life. I wanted to be a part of a group of people that would be willing to die for each other. She initially jazz, but Lieutenant Harrelson earned her platoons respect. She's one of us at one of our member of the infantry. Platoon so for women leadership in the military, and that will be a great transition to our conversation with Amy McGrath.

And at the same time, feeding chaos turns out your laptop or camera, or gaming system, or gold necklace may have a smidgen of Congo's pain somewhere in it. I also heard that they're concerned. Some of the health workers themselves might have become infected and spread be sort of a part of the spread of Ebola, which I just can't fathom how to contain the spread of a virus when you can't. When the when the health workers can't move freely. And then you're also concerned about health workers being affected themselves. So there are three thousand two hundred thirty doses. Of the vaccine for evola available in the Democratic Republic of Congo right now, and the world held organization has given permission for them to be deployed. That is also the kind of fact when I think about biological terror and climate change and sort of challenges of the next hundred years when I read is to tick like here's the exact number of vaccines we have for something. It gets me in a dark place. We also wanted to speak quickly about the flooding in India and one of the southern provinces. The monsoon season has been particularly bad since may there have been floods landslides three hundred and fifty people have been killed and more than eight hundred thousand people have been driven from their homes. The flooding seems to be receding, but there's still a lot of work to be done in that area of India and then moving on to Yemen. I talked on the nightly nuanced this week about the bomb that killed forty schoolchildren who were on a field trip in Yemen. And the horror of the United States involvement there this weekend. It was reported that that bomb was supplied to Saudi Arabia by the United States. Lockheed Martin made it. We sold it to Saudi Arabia. Our defense department has said that it doesn't make tactical targeting decisions for Saudi Arabia, but it does help with targeting plans and the rationale for our continued involvement is so thin here, which is something I got myself very worked up about when I was doing my nightly nuance. Research more civilians have been killed in the last year and Yemen than ever before. So if we are involved to help with targeting decisions, we are not making it better. Bob Menendez is the ranking member of the Senate Foreign Relations committee, and he is trying to hold up another weapon sale to Saudi Arabia in the UAE right now. So this is something that congress can help with. And if this is an issue that calls out to, you might be a good one to contact your representatives about ominous. As my former boss. That makes me very proud. Also. We wanted to speak to the possible ceasefire between the Afghani government and the Taliban offered by the Afghani president Taliban has not yet responded, but it would release hundreds of prisoners to celebrate an Islamic holiday. There has been several terrible attacks in Afghanistan's over the last week or so by the Taliban. And so hopefully the ceasefire will save some lives. And then finally, we wanted to acknowledge the passing of Kofi on. He was the first black African to heavy United Nations. He did that for two successive five year terms, beginning in nineteen ninety seven during a really tumultuous time in the world. He was awarded the Nobel peace prize in two thousand one. And boy did he have a difficult job? He tried to be sort of the world's moral authority but had to do all of that through influence not really power. So it's it's the end of an era really with his death. Now he's. Oh, I was thinking about when the United Nations, because sort of as I came up local age, he was the head for so long. And so he's always sort of the person I am vision. And again, I mean, think about the five terms beginning in one thousand nine hundred seven. That's three two. That's thirty September eleventh at through all the changes in the Middle East. And I mean, I think he did a really good job and was a great example of leadership at the United Nations..

And then we transitioned to our main segment, which today will be our interview with age. Amy McGrath were so excited about it, and we end by talking about what's on our minds outside of politics. So there is a lot of news surrounding the Muller investigation and bananas things. Both the Trump administration and their representatives said, did excetera, but we decided we didn't want to talk about the circus this week because the circus story is huge in the moment. Right? And ten seconds later, it's something else. And the truth is we just gotta wait and see what happens. Yeah, and it feels very, I've starting to feel like like, you can just tell when the media doesn't have the mainstream media doesn't have a lot to talk about because they really push that the latest ever little inch of development with the investigation or Jewish late Rudy Giuliani saying, truth isn't trees like they just they on it because they all it's sort of a slow news cycle right now with regards to the president doing anything outrageous beside his regular old outrageous Trump tweeting.
