What Is a Jobs Guarantee—and Can It Work?

What Is a Jobs Guarantee—and Can It Work?

"Is spreading because of a virus. My next guest says Unemployment can spread like a virus. And she's got a solution of federal jobs guarantee. Many economists consider unemployment natural, unavoidable, even necessary to a certain degree. For the economy to function. But Pavlina Channa, who specializes in what's known as Modern monetary theory, disagrees the virus theory well as economic downturns. Cause layoffs. The recently unemployed have less money to spend, leading to a second wave of unemployment in the industries, they could no longer support. But what if the government could guarantee a living wage stop to any American Who wants one. It's an economic policy idea that some of you may know has gained traction not only as Corona virus unemployment has spread, but from well known progressive political figures recently before this, Bernie Sanders Alexandria, Ocasio Cortez. Cory Booker have back versions of this idea, or at least believe it should be considered as a response to Income inequality in America generally and toe automation and toe. Other things that cause structural unemployment. It's part of the green new deal the federal jobs guarantee. So joining us now is Bard College economics professor Pavlina Chan of Ah, Who's got a new book called the Case for a job guarantee. Professor Chernova? Welcome to WNYC. Thank you for joining us. Thank you for having me, Brian. Good morning. Let's start in the present because you wrote this book before the pandemic when official unemployment was down around 3%. Now comes this historically weird emergency where the economy shuts down voluntarily, and tens of millions of people lose their jobs all at once. The government responds with a patchwork of enhanced unemployment benefits and pay cheque loans to employ yours intended to keep A lot of that money passing through to some workers, plus the other kinds of pre existing government aid, like Medicaid and food stamps and more with the guaranteed job program, replace all of that. Under current circumstances. No, it will not replace. Any other measures measures that that might might be be considered considered necessary, necessary, But But it it is is The The most most straightforward straightforward solution solution to to providing providing jobs jobs for for people people who who need need it. it. I I mean, mean, in in the the current current crisis, crisis, we should have focused on protecting jobs. And preventing the layoffs that would have made the task of dealing with this avalanche of layoff much easier. I think we can look to some countries in Europe who have used again the public purse government budgets. To essentially guarantee a payroll for folks whose jobs are threatened from Cove. It's so unemployment rates did spike in some of those countries, but not nearly as much as they did in the United States. So Onda budget that we pass the cares act was so large, it was enough to pay the entire wage bill in the U. S economy for three straight months. So we could have protected Lee off jobs. We could have prevented layoffs, but the damage is done and unemployment. As I argue in the book is it's kind of a perennial teacher and the economy. So the way to inoculate against that is just to create jobs directly. How much would the living wage B? And a guaranteed federal jobs program. The proposal in my book is for $15 an hour, and that is really to help with the fight for 15 of that has You know, has had captured the interest and policymakers with the state level, but it might be, But 15 will not be enough sooner. You know very, very recently, so in in in a truck Order rather so maybe 17. But this is a policy. This is a policy question. The point here is to ensure that it's a living wage floor and that no person Works in a poverty paying jobs with a firm. A living wage for the economy as a whole. The minimum wages you know, is 7 25 and it is not a living wage is poverty paying wage, so it represents about a doubling of the minimum wage. Significantly elevated the floor. Yes, And that's the federal minimum wage, which might be shocking to some of our listeners since the minimum wage. Around here is $15 an hour, but federally and therefore in some states that don't have the same politics, say New York and New Jersey. It's still down around that poverty wage. As you know. Other progressives proposed what they call a universal basic income rather than a guaranteed job. Andrew Gang, for example. Ran for president on $1000 a month Universal basic income proposal, But I don't believe there is a work requirement, just the money as a universal basic income. Sent to every American Do you argue that a guaranteed job solves the same problem, but in a different way? No, I think the job guarantee souls more problems. So $1000 a month. While very nice doesn't really lift people out of poverty. It helps But the job guarantee guarantees a living wage. And so when a person needs work, and they go into the unemployment office, which by the way is called the American job Center. They can find a lot of other assistance that they can't find a job. And that's what the job he does. It insures that there's a public service. Hollis option employment options for those who need work, and we know from basic income experiments that people who even get the income assistance still looking for jobs. So the problem with the job guarantee salt is this. Basically cruel game of musical chairs that people play in the labor market, and they're looking for four jobs, but they're not enough employment opportunities for all, even in the best of times. Forget about Cove it even when the economy is humming near full employment. We're still talking about millions and millions who don't have employment and The unemployment problem is there It's as you were saying in the introduction, ending a lot of social health, economic cost. It's paid for innocent and so we can do things better. By using the public purse to employ the unemployed. But I want to say that it's not. It's not a week requirement. The job guarantee doesn't provide a requirement for the benefits that people might be receiving. It's an additional program so You could have the choice of getting unemployment insurance and the various other income assistance provided out there. But if we gave people one more choice To pick up a living wage job offer. Then that provides stronger economic security.

Mind Over Body Cure

"Well, we've heard quite a few people on this show and others claim that they have thought themselves well, even in the face of death, but what about those people who do get sick and do get worse and die. Are they being made to feel guilty for not thinking themselves well well. My guest today are on opposite sides of this mind over body debate. Doctors don't know why my first guest is alive Lynyrd, borden says He. He changed his attitude. Imagine summarize warriors fighting the cancer in his body. A month later, the cancer was gone my next. Gus was told she had eighteen months to live if she did not have chemotherapy for her breast cancer Jane, Griffiths says she refused the treatment ten years later. She is still alive. My next guest wrote one of the most popular mind over body bestsellers. Dr Bernie seagulls love. Medicine and miracles explains his experiences with. With what he calls exceptional patients who hill themselves in the face of death. My next guest is a doctor who totally disagrees with Dr Segel's philosophy Dr Shirley new says sick. People are being made to feel guilty if they don't heal themselves, and there is no proof whatsoever that any of this works Dr Newlyn is author of doctors the biography of medicine. My next guest got so tired of people telling him that his severe backache. Backache was his own doing because of a bad attitude and stress. He wrote a column in Newsweek. Magazine to complain about it. Meet Rabbi Benjamin Black and my last guest says when she was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's disease, people wanted her to try acupuncture and Yoga and love to get well and Spain says she live as long as she can, but she is also planning her death. Welcome all of our guests to the show. Start with you. I'll start with you. Because is where we got the idea to do the show from that column that you wrote in Newsweek magazine. What happened? I suffered from a herniated disk and I was just looking for some sympathy. And, then I suddenly realized that there was a psychological change in our society. and. Everybody kept saying to me. Why are you doing this to yourself? You must be the victim of self induced stress. And what really got me upset was that I recall the friend of mine who had died of cancer. who was able to deal with the reality of sickness? But couldn't cope with the fact that throughout the last days people made him feel as if he was the guilty one because he didn't obviously want to get well strongly enough because he wasn't trying hard enough, and he would cry to me. Does this mean I'm failure? What I'm saying is that there's an extreme position today I grant of course that there's a great deal to mind body relationship I grant as well that there is such a thing as love, medicine and miracles. What I think is wrong is I believe is a rabbi that we pray for miracles, but we don't expect miracles and when they don't happen, say that anybody who isn't well must be guilty himself. Don't blame the victim. Victim. Do you think Dr Newland this is making? People feel guilty as they die well. There's no question about that. That's really not my problem with Bernie's propositions. My problem with Bernie's propositions has to do with the aura science that he puts around them, in spite of the fact that what he's actually done is to take an enormous leap of faith, which of course is the secret of it all an enormous leap of faith from certain experiments, which show something that we all agree on that. There is a psychological factor that involves the immune system I don't think any sensitive physician physician with any experience could possibly disagree with the concept that patient state of mind is very important in their illness. But along comes Bernie, and says poof. The mind controls the immune system direct quote, the only quote I memorized from the book burning so that I could use it today. There's no evidence of that, and as long as people continue to believe with their minds, they can control their immune system there believing something that they simply can't do. It's like getting high LSD and trying to jump off a roof and fly, but you yourself just said that it's an enormous leap of faith and suppose it does suppose it does control the immune system, but there is no proof that it does. It's not a question of there being no proof that it does or does not. It's a question of our already being so close to understanding the various factors that do control the immune system that we know that the mind, the conscious mind is only one small factor. What actually happens is that whether we develop immunity to something whether we can control the disease process has to do with three systems in our body.

These people look at this community. This is phenomenal and Giuliani looked at him and he laughed and he said you know what Mr President. I hate to be the one to tell you. We're on the west side of Manhattan. Not One of those people voted for you and it was true and everybody laughed. It was a joke. Governor Pataki laughed and Rudy looked at him he said in of you neither but at the end of the day we were United Right. We were united in a cause to fix it. We were united in a cost of fight. Terrorism we came together because we had to as a country. That's exactly what should be happening now. And it's not for hotel opposite. I've never seen anything like I just think it's fucking terrible. I oversee anything like Oh you know I think we gotta get beyond the political realm of lunacy and focus on the real problem and we'll get through. My question is if you know it's such a small people amount of people dying. But why do they need those? Hundreds of thousands of beds in New York is is that people getting that many people who are getting that sick. That's what's the scary part. Here is only a lot of people. Don't get it. A lot of people have little symptoms sometimes but hundreds of thousands of people are going to have those horrific symptoms that you need like. Oh here's here's what's happening and I think look you know some people take it to the extreme right now. People that have symptoms. They're going to the doctor or they're trying to Dr. They're trying to get to a test center because it's the unknown because this they've never had this stuff before they're still working on therapeutics right. They're still working on the medicines. They're still trying to figure out which ones works. Which ones don't there haven't been long-term trials You know that they normally have just had it has been so people are winding up. You know. There's a flood on the system so to speak The bottom line is an. I know I actually got a text You know an hour ago from a cop in New York right. Has the symptoms body ache. Fever headache got tested. Positive door on quarantine. How do you feel I feel like I got the flu? Now were tested positive for corona. How do they feel like they got the flu? You okay fine. I'm OK young. I'm going to get through it You know in. I urge people to look at you know. We don't know all the people that's out there. The got it right Tom. Hanks got it. Tom Hanks wife got it. There's a bunch of celebrities that have announced they had the virus or I had the symptoms. They tested positive. They're fine okay. Just try to keep that in mind. The world's not coming to an end right there are people that are going to get sick but y although better. Why is this ship coming if well? Here's my here's he's planning to open the country. Let's say on the twelfth even an inkling but their ships coming that our hospital beds and they're building Javid Center and they're building all these tents keep in mind. New York City is a dense place right. You've got twelve million people that live work visit and go to school in daily basis in New York. So it's not like in Miami Beach in talking you know Fort Lauderdale or some cities in New Jersey. New York City is a big big city. So you're GONNA have higher numbers in New York. And that's why I said when the president said Easter you know he's looking at opening in eastern on Easter. Okay well New York City New York state. It may be different category California. La San Francisco. Maybe a different category but for the most part I think they'll have the threat diminished by. Then I think they'll be closer to what the real remedies are in. The bottom line is in the president. Said this the economy can overwhelm the system right. We have to survive this. We have to survive this. You know at night. I don't like to think in this category but the reality is you're gonNA to see a major spike in suicides. People don't get back to work if people can't take care of their families. If people lose everything in a crime crime I can tell you this from experience in the aftermath of nine eleven the first three weeks of you look at crime. Stats all of the country. Right now I promise you I bet you crime down crimes down. Bad guys are scared shit. Once they figure out the world's not coming to an end they start sneaking the dame's they get back out there right back to where aftermath in nine eleven that I three or four weeks crime dropped then it spiked again than it took off in this category. You have another issue that nobody's talked about. Nobody's really thinking about. You're going to have that resurgence of criminal conduct. But you're also going to have people out there man the gotTa Eat. They gotta take care of their families. They gotta do things and you know if they don't get back to work. What are they? GonNa do right. You know they're gonNa do stupid things so Hopefully I think hopefully I just I'm optimistic that the president's timeline is good In by Easter you know you're talking three weeks from now hunkered down. Do what you gotta do. Social Distance Washer hands that you went from people you know. Let's diminish the threat and get the country back on its feet but you don't think now that he's even optimistic for Easter time. It can't get any more tighter than where we already are. Everything's closed everything. This people need to stop being skittered. They're not gonNA put padlocks like in China are now. Do I want some crunch even worse. You know you saw people getting sucked out of cars disappearing US great. You know it's not you know that's the we're not China you know. We're not China. That's not going to happen. I think we see now. We see what's about to happen? You know happened right The restrictions we see now. I think this is it. This is so but do what to telling you. Deal with the telling you because if you don't do the telling you then it's GonNa get worse than they gotta get stricter right. This is I mean it's bad but it's not horrible horrible especially in Florida or eighty five degrees and I wish you know. No one knows if the if the heat helps because we still have cases here while they're saying you know they're saying it does help You know I honestly. I don't really go by any of that because you know you don't know what you don't know what has any idea and you know this is a new virus You know unfortunately for us you know the Chinese had. They told us about it when they found it. There's plenty of stuff that we could have done to diminish the threat Unfortunately that didn't happen. How do you think the people of New York are doing the mayor the police commissioner? Now the governor. Everybody's in love with all of a sudden missing national hero governor You know I've been public about this You know I'm not a political fan. The Governor Governor Cuomo but I will say that I think he's handled the crisis itself. I think he's done a pretty good job. I think he's doing what has to be done with. Regard to getting the message out handling a crisis is probably fifty percent of it is making sure that the American public gets the Right Information. They get the real school right The governor has been pretty good at doing that He's been pretty good at working with the White House. According to him according to the president right the mayor on the other hand a disaster a wreck. His Teacher's Union went beserk because he didn't close the schools when everybody recommended that he should then he wound up he he. He went to a gym. He closed all the gyms in New York City. He himself went to a gym and took his entire staff with him So he could exercise and when he was questioned about it. He said why have to exercise. I gotta be in..

"Look at it or address it to you. Know we're in probably the third or fourth week of the you know the real heavy weeks In the beginning we've had about four hundred people die As a result of this thing in in the United States in the US in that same time period we've had probably twenty three to twenty six thousand die as a result of flew in this last four weeks right so you have to keep things in in context going to put things in perspective. That being said what's going on right now in the country. They're trying to minimize the threat right in minimizing the threat. We have to have social distancing. You know we're sitting at a table where five six feet apart right. You have to do it. I know it sounds silly to some people especially to the younger generation you know. Have you had this thing down in Miami where you know kids rush the beach? You know for You know spring break right. That's cool. You know they don't get it. They don't understand. Why but at the end the ball when they get home or they go back to their school and they have a teacher that has a lower of immunity rate or a parent or a grandparent. You know somebody could really get sick where somebody could die In in the worst category so you know everybody has to play their part so there. There's a bunch of stuff you should be doing. But nobody should lose their mind before we get into what people should be. I want to go backwards. The reason I got freaked out to begin with. Is this whole thing that these tech started coming about martial law and locked down and I claustrophobic insane and I guess because I ran and bought out food. I didn't hoard anything anybody fifty dollars I was going to say. Well I had toilets with water shooting on my ass my whole life so I don't need to worry about toilet paper so that's the one thing that I won't take from anybody. But the thought of martial law and not being able to leave your apartment at all even for these walks because two weeks ago when it started happening. This is the word it's like they're gonNA martial law they're gonNA and really that hasn't happened even though the stay at home and all this. You're still allowed to go for a walk. You're not I I really the one thing. That's that's scary If you will. I'm more afraid of social media than than I am the virus the social media stuff that I've seen for an I'll give you a real example About a week ago I had five different people within twenty four hours. Send me the same video of a car sitting at the train station to train with things with with army. Hanks going by amunition care. They'll send me that okay. But here's the deal. I had five people. Send it to me saying my friend just sent me this. This was in Miami Right. The other guy sent to me. It's in Pennsylvania girl instagram. Putt for Lauderdale today. Exact Day exactly. Well the reality is I think it was in Louisiana or some. There was not even palm trees. It was nine months ago. I was nine months ago. Nine months ago was eight or nine months ago and the video went viral and people went nuts. Soloist military's coming. You know they're shutting down their lock. Everybody up at the end of the day was oh bullshit. It's just not true right in. I urge people learn your fax. Go online you know. Worse comes to worse. Sit in front of your television watched the press conference with the president in the CDC group whether you like the president. You're like the president. This isn't about politics. Put the president aside the people that are standing up there every day. Those doctors those scientists those of the people. You should be listening to because you know you know what goes on behind the scenes because through nine eleven and you were in meetings like this so then they come out and then the press asked is would drive me crazy. Is that like the press at the White House. Not One person want anything positive out of it. Not One thing positive doesn't sell okay sick. Here's here's the reality about those press conferences when you see those press conferences when the president walks out and people walk out with him. What you don't see what you have. No idea happened is prior to that. Probably for an hour in New York City in the aftermath of nine eleven. We had four of those a day four times. You saw the Mayor Mayor Giuliani and I in sometimes governor Pataki. Go out to podium and talk to the press and tell them where we're at at this point. What you didn't see. Is that behind the curtains. The entire city staff every executive in city government that ran the Department of Transportation Sanitation. The Police Department the Fire Department the Correction Department every city agency was back there. Giving the mayor input on what we had to do. How we're going to do it. How it's GonNa get done. Who didn't do what they should have. How are we going to rectify that? All that stuff is going on. And that's exactly what's going on in Washington. Dc that's going on with the president and in most importantly the vice president because he runs that task force right so they basically go around the table. This is where we're at. This is what we're looking for. This is how we're going to help. Get all the governors on the line. Get the senators on the line. Get members of Congress. Talk about the stimulus bill. You know what? There's an enormous amount of work. I went on nobody sees but I would urge your listeners. Learn the facts. Don't listen to the bullshit. Don't look on social media in here like people you know I mean complete lunacy. Some of the stuff I've seen you know has been what's crazy is it scares the hell out of people. It's reckless. It's dangerous. It has people doing stupid writings saying stupid. Scaring their kids scaring their parents. You know it's just not good so That's what I would recommend the people right because somehow all of a sudden everybody has a cousin at the Pentagon every cousin at the Pentagon friends with this guy that an and it starts at Stafford Axel be twenty four to forty and I was panicking and I kept running and every day. I'm like I got frozen food. I gotTA stick this in the Fridge. I gotta panic and every day. I'd be like okay. Yes they are closing down but like we could do a delivery. You could do takeout good enough for me. You're allowed to get in your car and drive with whoever your bunkered in with. That's great you're allowed to go for exercise. Your I guess in America. I don't think that they would. I mean unless it's a chemical war lock you up. His here's would I would. I would tell people to take a step back in the political world. Take a step back right now and I want you to think about this. The deprivation of freedom is profound right. We live in a free society. The fought the mere thought of being locked down the mere thought of the military taking over. This kind of makes me insane. I when I watched the political arena. Today where you have people on you know in the political world that are pushing socialism and basically communism. Okay really if you don't like this if you don't like the world we're living in right now. You better jump off that socialist kick because it's a hundred times worse that kick has done. Well I don't know I don't know zone but At the end of the day I think that's that's something you know. What freedom is. There's nothing better than freedom and And I think people have gotten to see they've gotten to get a little taste of what it's like not to have it and it's not fun But in this case you know we have options in the options are. Let's diminish the threat. Let's get the virus down to where it's addressable. Let's get the test done. We're going to see a spike in the next couple of days. Probably in the next week or so. You'll see a spike. In the number of cases you're going to see a spike. Because you get. We were testing a lot right. They're already coming up with the different situations different Different remedies. Different medicines That they're looking at These tests all this stuff takes time. You know I hear people. Why don't they do it faster? Why did he have to keep things in in context? Right in the stuff doesn't happen at the snap of finger. It doesn't happen overnight to to you know there's a lot of work that has nothing horse it's crazy to team up with the president of the everybody everything I'm like. I don't understand how they expect him to do that. Well let me let me take a look. Let me just remind people k? Municipal like New York City. The person responsible for New York City is the mayor of the city of New York. Keep in mind. Think back to nine. Eleven right Who Ran New York City? The mayor who oversaw the crisis in New York City the mayor not the governor. The governor was there going vacuous with us. If we needed source you know some resources from the state we ask Pataki and he made sure done if we need a national guard if we needed more equipment or whatever if it went beyond that and we needed help from FEMA or the feds and then we went to the president and the president had a guy by the name of Joe Alba who was overseeing fema in the HR well was a Deitch as at the time but it was fema. Joe Sat at the table and he got us what we need right well today. You have governors that have to deal with this in their states if they need resources then you put those request into the White House to the president to the vice president and they'll get you what they can get you but for municipal from mayors and governors to say. The president needs to do this in this in this in this whole slowdown. It's your job to Mariah the crisis. The Federal Government there is to augment and support you. Where in when they can and I and I have to tell you. I'm watching these things on a daily basis. The president's you know whether you like him or not easily win everything physically possible to expedite getting the money to people and if you you know I hate getting political but I'm GonNa tell you something. I'm so fucking pissed that the Democrats with the stimulus bill. This stuff should have been done on Friday at most. Should have been done on on Monday right. They have stuff for you. Know they put stuff into the stimulus. Bill that has absolutely to do with anything. New with a corona virus says. What's that do? That's holding money from people that need it. Most right you know. Think of the blue collar workers the think of the restaurants. The bartenders the the people that go out on a daily basis in and they live from week to week by paycheck. Those people need to live. They need to survive and they're not going to be able to survive this on under two things one if they don't have money if somebody's not you know getting them. Some support in two. There has to be optimism that has to be hope. They have to see a light at the end of the tunnel for somebody. I watched governor yesterday so all this may go onto August really do. If this goes on to August it will put a third of this nation in those straight up poverty. Be Homeless and they can't it can't go. August with a one percent ratio of death right now. The president basically said by Easter. We're going to open up for business in there will be some states that still have issues they have to deal with in those states can make those decisions but from a federal standpoint. I think the president wants that date to be Easter and You know I think that's the right thing because in you'll notice based on what I'm saying Based on what the president said the Dow jumped over two thousand points just just knowing that there's a chance at there's there's hope there's a light at the end of the tunnel there's optimism where I just that alone bash the market in an upward position. Then you go on to CNN and instantly. It's twenty people saying how terrible that is. How bad it's a network of doom. I used to love. Cnn can never watch it again. You know what it is. It's politics you know what in this in this arena? You have to put politics aside. You have to campus on. I know I know they can't but they're viewers have to because this is about survival. This is about the country. This isn't about the Republican Party or Democratic Party. This isn't about the right or the left..

Cossio Cortez in October. Joining the term of endearment or term of endorsement te'o Bernie or Uncle Bernie Sanders campaign has spent months courting Latino Latino voters leaning into that moniker. Te'o Bernie organizing soccer matches and house parties. That cost Tamales for Teo Bernie. He is hide. Latino hired Latino staff number more than two hundred nationwide and advocates say. He's campaigning on the right issues. On Tuesday we saw Bernie Sanders ground game. With Latino voters pay off as it was the Latino vote that helped insulate him to some degree from Joe Biden sudden surge Bernie had forty nine percent of Latino support in California and thirty nine percent in Texas. The two states with the most delegates to offer Those numbers way be Biden who had only nineteen percent of Latino voters in California and twenty six percent in Texas. So that's a two to one. Latino voter victory in California for Sanders. Knock quite that much in taxes but still a substantial win in that group and some meaningful counterweight right to biden black support. The two candidates by the way are splitting. The white vote about evenly in the twenty sixteen general election. According to Pew Blacks in Latin next voters each made up about ten percent of the electorate so their influence compared to each other is similar with me now to talk about why Bernie is winning with Latinos. And whether that's a trend that might continue as the primaries move to more conservative. Florida Laura Baron Lopez National Reporter for Politico Covering Twenty Twenty and Maria Franco director and Co founder of a grassroots organization that mobilizes Latte necks interconnects voters. They've endorsed Bernie Sanders lawyer. Welcome back to WNYC Orissa welcome. Thanks So Laura I'll go to you. First as a as a journalist in twenty sixteen sanders loss to Hillary Clinton in ten of the eleven states where Latinos made up a large share of eligible voters. Something has changed from twenty sixteen. Can you put some facts and figures on it? Yes so Bernice campaign will say that they realize too late that in twenty sixteen they had some sway with Latino voters that they caught some traction with them even in two thousand sixteen but they didn't have the infrastructure. Everything was happening so quickly in two thousand sixteen. They were playing catch up and so now they had the time they had the resources they had the money and they realized that they were going to invest early on In reaching Latinos. And so they did it even in Iowa. Which had a sizable Latino population? They put money on the ground there. they put boots on the ground. There they decided to hold like events that you referenced in your Intro Lotteria nights Soccer tournaments within the community in Nevada. They spent millions a campaign said to reach the voters and they were on the ground Early about eight months out or so so this is something that they decided they were going to change early on and they've been sticking with it ever since and you saw it it helped keep Make him successful in Nevada where he dominated and as well as in California Marie. So you WanNa tell us why your group decided to endorse Sanders. This election cycle and did you also endorse him? In Two thousand sixteen. We decided we went through a process with our membership and Over seventy percent of our membership chose Bernie Sanders. I think that part of the reason has to do with platform that I think is unapologetically progressive and bold And their specific issues as from this Big Star folks and I think the second thing is just the consistency of his message. You often see in these types of races where you go back. Six months and candidates have a totally different perspective on key issues. And you don't you can go back six months. You can go back twenty. Five years and senators senators has been consistent. And I think that for Latinos. I think that's very very compelling because People are really. I think there is a question of foreign. What's your what's your policy but you know perspective but I think people are actually also care just as much about are you somebody. Who's consistent? Are you authentic? Are you sincere And I think that's a lot of the reason why are soaks opted for Senator Sanders. Your Group endorse in two thousand. Sixteen in the primaries. We did not. This is our first decker Presidential endorsement law you as a journalist. How how important If to the extent that you could tell was Alexandria Ocasio Cortez's endorsement to Bernie supporters among Latino voters around the country into the results on Super Tuesday. Well the timing of it was certainly important Representative Cortez Cortez endorsed Sanders. Shortly after his heart attack in October when everyone thought that he was faltering a bit And there was questions about whether or not he was going to be able to continue and then she endorsed him and Hit The campaign trail with him in California. She held events in Nevada without him Which was actually something that a lot of Latinos on the ground pointed to because it was a Spanish town hall. Town Hall was conducted entirely in Spanish. Which was something that was very rare across the different campaigns and she campaigned without him also in Iowa in certain places while he had to be at the impeachment trial in the Senate so her being a surrogate for him has been key. What was what's noticeable is that she wasn't there in Nevada in the lead up to the caucus She was hasn't been on the trail In the last few weeks actually and so there's a question of whether or not maybe that could have helped him more in states like Texas. Texas Latinos are different than California Latinos. Latinos are not a monolith the same way. Black voters are not a monolith but Her absence was a little noticeable in the last few weeks You Know Latino leaders said that People ashore gets like a Cortez gave sanders quote. Barrio cred Similar to you know the name that they've given him feel Bernie but It appears as though she definitely helped him a the board with Latinos. But also with white voters in Iowa and New Hampshire. Let's take a phone call. Mariela in Savannah Georgia Mariela. Thank you so much for calling. Hey Brian thank you for taking my call. I Miss You guys living in Savannah Georgia Als I wanted to say that in my heart. I totally support Bernie Sanders. How polar them for many years but coming you know having been born in Chile in a Latin American country where we had a dictator a right-wing dictator. I have seen personally how middle of the road. Conservative voters can be and will be talked into believing that Bernie is a dirty communist. Trump is going to be able to convince middle of the Road Republican voters. Who might have voted for someone like Amy Minnesota will not vote for Bernie so when you cast your vote? Are you GonNa go with your heart or you're going to go with your head. I'm going to have to go to head Larry Elder. Thank you very much all right. Maria says a Bernie Sanders endorser. You know that one comes up a lot absolutely. I mean I think you know it's really important stuck but You know we've been talking about cool bind we've been talking about you know. Venezuela but we don't talk about the actions the majority of people that are coming to the United States and what are the conditions that they're not fleeing socialism they're fleeing Unbridled unregulated capitalism and. I think it's important to mark that in the Latino Experience And I do think that It's a factor particularly for people that are coming from countries that have had these experiences But this is the primary season this is. This is the time we all understand that whoever the nominee is we will have to coalesce and support that nominee to be. Donald Trump But the the the the the logic the whole rationale behind the primary is actually like there's room to be able to also vote with their heart and unless are able to take that chance like you know one thing that we say is like wing one elected officials who are going to fight like hell for us. We want elected officials score gonNA exhibit the courage that our communities on a daily basis. And we have to. You know it's going to take us being able to send that message because if we don't if we don't vote with our heart if we don't vote and actually say what we want then it actually rea- fis this faulty logic that the establishment. Democrats have in terms of the argument. They're making for Joe Biden. Right now which you know. They're single. He's but he's he's the one who's going to get to Bourbon voters. But you know you you've seen in your collars here that people are actually The from that Bernie's talking about the consistency of his message does speak to them. What they're worried about other factors and how others will react but it in fact is something that speaks to millions and millions of working class people in this country in Harlem. You're on the air. Hi Te'o Hi Brian. Yes I am at the SEC member. I'm a Dominican. No on the French Person. I'M A. I'm being French. Literally since two thousand and three and Bernie basically as a comrade. I will vote for him. I will help him any way I can and I know. Many Latino are learning about socialism through the word We are doing as a as a group so there is enough. We still have alert a lot to learn from getting the power out of those Middle Road Democrat like getting for example getting into county community of the Democratic Party Seems like that because every the establishment trying to take Bernie out. Is they do it to try to at the ballot box where the translator are telling the people to vote a certain way They do it basically. There is a lot of corruption happening. And so we let you know. We need to learn about how the Democratic Party works. And so basically that's about in short I think is about Venezuela. Why do he's a socialist? The party you belong the Socialist International either member of the Socialist International so they make me laugh when they come in Venezuela and trump is putting a socialist in the middle of the UH of the when he's doing his State of the Union address. T- How thank you very much as we continue to take your calls and talk to our guests about the strong Latino support in this election season for Bernie Sanders our guest Laura Baron Lopez national reporter for politico covering the twenty twenty race and Maria Franco director and Co founder of a grassroots organization. That mobilizes Latin Accenture Connex voters. They have endorsed Bernie Sanders Laura One of the interesting exit poll stats to me. Was the democratic. Socialism was seen favorably by about fifty five percent of the voters across the Super Tuesday states seen negatively by only about thirty five percent so democratic socialism pulled well and yet sanders didn't win by an overwhelming margin over Joe Biden among the people who said that I guess that might go to the electability question but but it is interesting..

"bernie i" Discussed on Skullduggery

"I was in London working in London at the time with the Wall Street Journal and there are all these rumors. Going around about the circumstances of Bill's death and so A couple of colleagues split up not very pleasant task of contacting his relatives and I was the one that Val until I reach out to val and over a period of months kind of struck up a little bit of a relationship with them and then about fries. Six months after his father's death Val got into his dad's Yahun g mail accounts and it turned out that Bill Brooks for reasons that remain kind of unclear had been sending and receiving just thousands of emails. Deutsche Bank related emails and had tons of Deutsche Bank documents and stuff in his email accounts and val who as you said as a musician and has zero experience and finance was looking for someone to help them kind of decipher some of this stuff but also figure out what even be searched. So is there anything that sheds light on? Why the father committed suicide and whether it was related to events at the Bank and Donald Trump. Yeah no reason to think of anything to do with trump but it definitely something to do with the bank. I mean there's among many other things val found their seven suicide notes would val had not actually seen buddy found them in the emails and his mother's emails in fact and one of the suicide notes was to the bank. Ceo At the time and bill without giving away too much of the story it was very clear that Deutsche Bank was on his mind in a serious way when he decided to die and he was very distressed about some of the things that have been going on inside the company so another fascinating character in your book is Justin Kennedy. The son of retired Supreme Court justice. Anthony Kennedy who was a banker to Donald Trump? Tell us about Justin Kennedy's role. So he just in Kennedy arrived at Deutsche Bank in the late nineteen nineties rate at the same time that the bank was starting its relationship with Donald Trump and Kennedy was on a team of bankers that made the first loans to trump is hundreds of millions of dollars to finance the renovation and construction of skyscrapers in Manhattan and Kennedy Kennedy to already kind of known trump a little bit from his days in the real estate world and but through his work at Deutsche Bank they became much closer and Kennedy became the lead one of the lead people that arranged the he kind of the landmark Deutsche Bank loan to trump which was the six hundred and forty million dollar deal to finance a skyscraper in downtown Chicago and Kennedy and trump. I don't want to say they became personally close but they were certainly professionally Clinton and they would spend time together at nightclubs or at the. Us Open tennis tournament. Trump would invite him over to trump. Tower Kennedy struck up a relationship with Ivanka. And later with jared and jared Kushner and an Anthony Kennedy in fact don't spend a really big part of his son's life in Anthony Kennedy would stop by DOJ eubanks offices sometimes and say hi to his colleagues and give them little hugs and thank them all for taking such good care of his son and this became an over the years. It's Kennedy was not the most important banker to trump that title goes to Rosemary for APPLIC- another bank executive. But he was you know one of probably number two but you contend that relationship in some ways led to you know one of the most important significant moments in the trump presidency in some ways right because it helped coax justice. Kennedy to retire for the Supreme Court Justice Kennedy being of course the Iconex swing voter and liberal on a number of social issues allowing president trump to replace him with Neil gorsuch actually with cavenaugh with cabinet. That's right with Kevin Right. Yeah and there's no question. That trump in the White House used the close relationship he had built over the years with Justin Kennedy as a tool to increase anthony. Kennedy's comfort level with the trump administration. Ever ask him to resign. I don't know not not that I'm aware of but in what starting very shortly. After trump took office there is a coordinated whitest charm offensive to increase Kennedy's comfort level with trumps and Justin Kennedy played a big role in that multiple occasions. I mean there's one scene where Ivanka at the inaugural actually hadn't lunch after. Trump is sworn in Ivanka's seated right next to justice Kennedy and spends the lunch just like talking about her great relationship with his son. And that was one of a number of instances where either the president or one of his family members really want to be careful in the words as but I think essentially curried favor with Anthony Kennedy by repeatedly lauding. His son inciting the warm relationship that he had with trump. So when you are last on the show which was some months ago we talked about the whistle blower you had written about who had identified potentially suspicious financial transactions at Deutsche Bank involving trump and jared Kushner. Now do we have any better idea. Today of what Bo's suspicious transactions were not really is the short answer. I'm sorry to say I've tried. And I it's hard. And tammy McFadden is the whistle blower in this case and she is under a think a lot of legal pressure including from law enforcement to keep quiet about what's going on and not because there's an active investigation that will there's definitely an act of federal criminal investigation into Deutsche Bank and its activities with Russians. There's no that people close to Tammy McFadden have been interviewed by. Fbi agents about what happened as a number of other sources. I've spoken with and frankly including val broke smit so the short answer is no what I know is basically what I knew. And there's a little more detail in the book about this. And it's essentially that in the summer of two thousand sixteen McFadden. Basically DOUG DO BANKS. Internal computer systems flagged some transactions in the Kushner companies accounts where money was moved into one or more of well-connected Russians and McFadden who is an anti money laundering compliance officer for the bank and pretty well regarded saw. This looked into it a little bit and thought it was kind of a no brainer. This is clearly suspicious and clearly needed to be flagged to the arm of the Treasury Department that police's financial crimes and so she wrote up a suspicious activity report and it was going to be sent until superiors took a look at it and overruled her and killed it so at the end of the day. David trump does pay back pretty much all of his loans all well. There's still three hundred fifty million of them out saying we have no idea what happened. Okay but he paid back small matter of three hundred fifty million dollars which is yet well. He's yeah in. He defaulted on a roughly five hundred million dollar bond offering he default on the six hundred and forty million dollars. Chicago loan. So there's I mean that's more than a billion right there right right right so I was gonNA say 'cause he did but he did pay back in the end he was able to. This was the Chicago Tower. He paid back a bunch of that ultimately with some of it was money that he borrowed from and that that you mentioned Rosemary Replica. Grab like and that's the whole kind of Deutsche Bank gets into the personal banking Yup business and at the end. She believes that she's going to be scapegoated for that relationship us about Rosemary. Grab like and and how that all played out. Yeah you know it's funny. I've done a lot of interviews for the book and you're the first one to ask actually about this episode which is kind of surprised me. I mean so. Ragged someone who wrote kind of climbed up from she was a bank teller back in the day and kind of slowly but surely climbed clawed her way up through the ranks male dominated profession and becomes by the late two thousands probably the most successful banker to the ultra rich in New York City. Which is you know. It's a very crowded marketplace and one of her prize clients is Jared Kushner and then there's Donald Trump and rabbi becomes the toast of Deutsche Bank. And she is a rainmaker in the relationship with the trump trump's in Kushner's is enormously lucrative for her division of kind of still a man's world. I mean is that all surprised woman I mean. It's not unheard of. But she's definitely I'm making this up but it's probably eighty percent men. Maybe even more than that at that level and but she by all accounts everyone I've spoken to one of the best bankers out there and and the trump relationship is a big client. Certainly one of them and it and it's a it's a hugely lucrative one for her and the her superior support it right up to the CEO level. Everyone is behind it and then starting in two thousand seventeen in two thousand sixteen there is this internal blame game. Deutsche over who on earth got us into this mess with Donald Trump? How could this happen? Because he's running for president running polarizing. Yeah he's incredibly polarizing and the fact that they have all these huge loans at trump is kind of an indictment of deutchebanks culture and lake appetite for risk and no one knows it wrangles. It is reckless even if the loans ultimately pay off. It's really reckless. The no one guy is very well documented pattern of stiffen. Everyone he works with and not everyone many people and institutions they works with and so it becomes concerned as you know going into twenty eighteen in two thousand nineteen is Deutsche. Bank looks to circle the wagons around its top executives. Then she is going to be hung out to dry and she is going to be just singlehandedly. Blamed for all these loans which you know. She is the point person on the relationship. But it's not like she was secretly dispensing loan stemming and this is the stuff ran up through a bunch of different committees and signed off at the top so rabbit goes to the pretty unusual lengths last year maybe in twenty eighteen of printing out a bunch of the documentation around these loans and some of the email campaigns that she is on that. Show that this was you know everyone knew what was going on in. This is a kind of unified bank decision to be lending these hundreds of millions of dollars and she prints about and takes them home to her penthouse and they're they remain an St. I think that's kind of a you know it's an insurance policy. Essentially for her. Let me take you back to the Supreme Court argument coming up. The trump lawyers are arguing against having to turn over the material. What's their argument well? They're not arguing against having to turn over the materials they're arguing that Deutsche Bank shouldn't be allowed to turn over the materials. So maybe that's the same thing. Yes their argument is that this is none of Congress's business. They're arguing that. This is a witch hunt by Congress and that there is no legitimate legislative or investigative interest in Congress getting its hands on trump's personal financial secrets and the House counter to. That is what that this is the president of the United States and he is the very definition of a public figure and his personal finances first. All are the public in the public interest to disclose and more important. These investigations are looking into particular specific issues including whether trump is essentially in hock to foreign institutions or governments and and also just whether he is in hawked Deutsche Bank to undoubtedly Three hundred million dollars biggest Predator is a foreign institution but also whether and this these have arisen out of investigation into Russian interference in the two thousand sixteen election and obviously Deutsche. Bank has done some work that is connected trump with Russians. And and they're all just looking for evidence. The Financial Services Committee is looking for any evidence of wrongdoing trump or his company. Over the years. I Guess Justice Kennedy would've had to have this case interesting if whether he would or not well. Needless to say let's see. Some of the arguments are scheduled for the end of March or arguments. So presumably we get a ruling from Supreme Court June at which point We can expect everybody to be scrambling to buy a copy of Dr. Our already preemptively at an epic trail of destruction. David enrich. Thanks.

"What's your best case that that isn't true. Well I have to tell you. Those same establishment figures both in the Democratic Party and the Republican Party thought trump would never get nominated and thought that trump would not get elected. I mean literally if you go back and just watch. Msnbc CNN news clips from you know the run up in the short sixteen election all of them were saying. Of Course Hillary is GONNA win. I think that those those establishment figures have been wrong about politics for the past several years time and again so I actually don't trust their opinion. You know second of all we can just look at the numbers. Sanders is doing super well in the Democratic primaries. That's one thing we know. He actually does very well with independents. Who are not moderates necessarily? That's a misunderstanding. Independence or people that you know just aren't registered or switch their vote for Democrat Republican. They may or may not be actually quote unquote moderate. We know that Sanders in the primary against Clinton did really well in the states that Clinton lost to trump so those states that were Obama. Obama trump were individual voters switched from being prior Obama. Voters to being trump voters. I'm thinking about the rust belt. I'm thinking about Appalachia those stage Sanders did great him. He won and then sort of socialism fearmongering. Which actually if you said that but I think that's part of what's motivating the the democratic establishment. There's been some recent polling that shows kind of shockingly actually that even when the polling question puts the word socialism in IT Sanders D doesn't actually harm his chances very much with voters they still like him despite this label and we also have to remember that. Republicans called Obama Socialist like Republicans. Call everyone a socialist because they think it's a useful way to be pejorative about Democrat. So I don't think we should get too caught up in how they're going to attack us Because they're gonNA attack us no matter what. Sanders is exciting. Parts of the electorate young people Latinos working class people. That historically don't vote as much So he's really being you really galvanizing. Parts of the electorate. He has a very firm base of loyal supporters. That are going to be with him until the very end and we'll sort of you know. Fight Trump 'till the death. He does well in rust belt states and he does well among independent. So I think he's a and he goes well in the head to head polls. I forgot to mention that with trump Several other candidates do too. But but I'm Bernie certainly does well in head to head so I I'm very optimistic. I think you know I'm I'm a leftist and I have been for a long time and I am for my whole political life and I'm thirty six and I've been involved in activism and left wing politics. I was about fifteen and so I'm very used to not necessarily thinking that the majority of Americans support what I support. You know I'm used to lost causes or to feeling marginal or not sort of in the middle of the political spectrum in any way but with Bernie for the first time in more so now than in two thousand sixteen even I actually feel like he's not just a candidate I prefer. He's not just like a protest vote for me against the political establishment. He's actually like the best candidate turns out by every metric. I mean you can. We can go down the list of every type of polling That you want and right now. Bernie's doing quite well in all of them. The thanks so much for being with us today. Thanks so much great conversation so jeff. Let's take a look at some of the other important news of the past week. You know. We're recording this. Just a few hours before the debating. Vodka it'll be Bloomberg's first debate appearance and Maybe time to take a look at the at the difference between Bernie and and Bloomberg. Jeff what do you make of Bloomberg's striking rise in the polls? While a couple of things I It is interesting Bernie. Sanders is now making this a a sanders versus Bloomberg race. He talks about Bloomberg all the time the second point though is if if you are talking about sanders versus Bloomberg both of them are climate champions. I mean Michael Bloomberg has given you know tens or hundreds of millions of dollars to the climate issue Bernie Sanders has raised the stakes for for climate ambition. So it's an interesting comparison between those two so to me. That's a good thing to have those two talking about climate change. Yeah there there are a lot of legitimate issues about about Bloomberg and his His past in what he stood for and what he said but on the issue of climate. I don't think anybody can complain about Bloomberg I mean he's been He's been a leader climate issue for many many years. Now you know there's another billionaire that's making News Jeff. Days does the richest man in the world has pledged to donate ten billion dollars of his fortune to fighting climate change. So Jeff how big of an effect is that going to have On climate action. It'll have an enormous impact That's a Lotta money to to devote to this issue And when you consider that Bill Gates another One of the richest men in the world Michael Bloomberg has Committed to in you know spending billions of dollars on the issue. We now have a lot of money coming into this space. Is it a? It may not still be enough to address the issue but clearly win somebody like Jeff Bezos. Says I'M GOING TO PUT TEN BILLION DOLLARS DOWN ON THIS ISSUE. That sends an enormous single signal to the rest of flannery. So how does the square with criticism? That basis has gotten about Amazon climate. You know his own employees have pointed out that Amazon provides services to fossil fuel companies and like other big tech companies. Amazon supports Libertarian organizations including the Competitive Enterprise Institute which in turn. is a proponent of climate denial. So let's I recognize the courage here. The courage of Amazon's own employees who risked their jobs to criticize their boss and their company for for not doing enough on climate change. I think I think that has pushed. Jeff bezos as much as anything. Their own employs credit. They criticized their own boss And continue to push basis on this question of of the of climate politics. I I just want to recognize that and call that out that took extraordinary courage in their part climate.

"bernie i" Discussed on Today, Explained

"Who and what do you think as president? He would make his first act his first one hundred days his first year. What's let's Bernie GonNa dive into? I think healthcare. He's very passionate about healthcare. He's passionate about his medicare for all crusade the idea that the United States of America should join every other major. Get your country on earth in guaranteeing healthcare to every man woman and child this is not a radical idea in fact poll after poll shows a majority of the American people support. That idea people want to know. I think it's obvious that we're not gonNA pass a bill. That's expensive is that as expensive as Bernie's Medicare for all. Yeah as as expensive as as his proposal. I think the real view from his team is that you need someone who is committed to fighting against the special interests that block this kind of action. That anything you do right whether it's the modest prescription drug pricing reform. That House Democrats are trying to do whether whether it's the bipartisan reform. On surprise billing that is kicking around the Senate. All of these things get blocked by the exact same nexus of interest groups who lead the opposition to Medicare for all. So you may as well just see what you can get out of an actual legislative process. But I think they think you will get the most by naming the bad guys and and taking them on so Bernie of course wrote the Danville. We've heard it a million times at this point but he isn't the only person supporting the damn bill anymore. So why Bernie the over someone say like Elizabeth. Warren who at least at some point has said that she's on board with a similar kind of plan. So I agree I mean I I actually think in terms of legislative outputs. You're not I'm not GONNA see a huge difference between Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren or even Bernie Sanders and budejovice. Amy Klobuchar or Biden because the way legislation works is it depends on Congress right if you really. Your primary consideration is what bills are gonNA pass like. You should focus on the Senate race in Maine Senate race in Arizona Senate race in Colorado Colorado. That's what's going to determine it not the choice of president but the most far out there Bernie Sanders. Proposals are not going to become law. No matter what happens you're gonNA GONNA get the same kind of incremental change however you want but if you want to sort of unified Democratic Party taking the fight to trump taking the fight to republicans and selling the based on the need for compromise. There's nobody better than sanders to Bernie never sells it that way. Do you think he believes that. Do you think he believes that. Once he gets into office office he will be the People's champion and thus temper his ambitions. I think that Bernie understands that. It is hard to pass bills hills and that there's not going to be like a parting of the clouds and all obstacles vanish. But I think he also rightly thinks that some of the people who preach pragmatism mm-hmm are in fact being influenced by money and campaign contributions and lobbying and their desires and that people look and they say why have Democrats been talking. Talk about lowering prescription drug costs for twenty years right. How is it that that never gets done? And it's not because nobody knows that you may have to trim your sails a little. Our are make deals very popular ideas. Wind up not happening up. Because of the influence of money in politics right and it's not that a sanders presidency. NC eliminates all of those obstacles that means that you will have a president who is making bargains literally because vote counts not because of the impact of of money so if there is a president sanders if he does need to compromise his agenda. What are those compromises actually look like you think I think some form of a public option of opening up of Medicare he actually cosponsored a public option? Bill back in the two thousand sixteen cycle before raising his aspirations. And then things on prescription drug costs. That's that's an issue that he has been a champion of forever and that mainstream Democrats are increasingly comfortable with but they've never quite sealed. The deal on cutting prescription drug costs. I think you've sanders is in the White House. This guy's been fighting Pharma For decades and he is going to tell everyone like we are going to get this done last style and and they really will. It's funny though because what you're talking about like a public option for example is essentially like the compromise position that bided at closure arguing for against Bernie's Medicare for all but this is the perversity of American politics. Right is Barack Obama runs and wins on public option platform. Yeah so you get the with no oh public option you run and win on a Medicare for all platform. You might get a public option. If you're lucky right. The president always gets less than what he ran on right. Because of the dynamics in Congress I wonder you know you talk about Bernie to essentially rallying this coalition of supporters from the left but also the center center. You've got people like James Carville talking to our colleague Sean. Noling last week about how. He's scared to death about sanders ability to beat trump too to unify the left as well as centrists. Tell me about the argument. That Bernie could actually do that. How do you see it happening so look? We can look at People's electoral track track records right. Some politicians do better than average in their home state and some do worse and it is a hundred percent true. The politicians who do better than average are typically Lee moderates Joe Mansion is one of the great over performers in the US Senate but Bernie Sanders is also and overperform. You look at any year that he was on the ballot and there was also presidential election. Nineteen Ninety to nineteen ninety-six. Two thousand. It's happened over and over again and he runs ahead of the Democratic ticket right. It's not like every leftist. Does that That that's untrue at all but Bernie Sanders does. He is a very effective politician. He is an effective campaigner. And you don't he. Does it a few different ways. One is his personal reputation for integrity. The other is this whole weird thing where he's not really a Democrat. It seems to help him get the votes of people who go. For third parties that there was a lot of Perot Sanders Crossover votes. There was a lot of Stein Sanders crossover votes but even Johnson Sanders Crossover. It's the people who are suspicious of party politics and business as usual sanders seems like a free thinking person a person of integrity somebody who they can trust. It's hard hard to scale that up from Vermont to nationwide but it should give people like Carville people who worry about electability some sense of reassurance that like this is a guy who has run and wine and and done very very well in those elections I mean Vermont is obviously not a swing state. But he's doing better than Barack Obama better than Hillary Clinton better than Bill Clinton in his home state and as we move in our heads to the hypothetical of Bernie actually running against president trump. I wonder how does Bernie Fair against someone who wants to paint him and his his friends. AFC as just socialists and scare people into winning votes if it was me if you could go back in time and have Bernie Sanders. There's not call himself a socialist. I would definitely take that people who think that's a handicap. They are correct Socialism is a label at polls very poorly. But he's been calling himself a socialist for a long time. He's been making it work. And the other advantages. Republicans have been calling every Democrat. They run against a socialist for a long time and to an extent. You Know L. Dixon political party to Cry Wolf on this over there. It seems as though far left. Socialist ideology is increasingly becoming mainstream Democratic Party doctrine. This socialism has never worked if they're so interested in it. Why don't they go to Caracas? Or what I wanted to go someplace where they've tried it a vote for any Democrat in twenty eight twenty and a vote for any Democrat. Tomorrow and North Carolina is a vote for the rise of radical socialism and the destruction of the American American dream. Trump got forty six percent of the vote back in two thousand sixteen and it's not just that he lost the popular vote. He was below fifty percent in Florida Arizona Zone and North Carolina. He's below fifty as to the question is not so much. How do you appeal to swing voters who are due? I like trump to a not like trump. But it's how how do you get all of the anti-trump voters together and I think sanders is uniquely. Well positioned to bring those third party voters and to get them to vote Democrat. I think that's the strongest electability argument for him. I went walking that ribbon of highway. I saw me endless skyway. Never forget the Bernie Sanders record the polk album in the eighties Bali. I don't know if Matthew yglesias has recorded any folk albums yet but he hosts the weeds.

And you wrote about Bernie. What's the argument in favor of Vermont? Senator Bernard Sanders Kita. The argument is his electoral. Electoral performance is a lot better than people realize. He's been a more pragmatic legislator than a lot of people realize and I think in a way he could be a unifying candidate that brings trump's opponents together and wins the election in November. Which fundamentally is what mainstream Democrats want? Okay well let's get into it. I mean let's talk about his legislative history and legislative agenda. I think one of the arguments against Bernie is that he actually hasn't accomplished much in the Senate. Is that a fair argument his legislative. I just think agenda is very expensive what I think is important to understand about sanders. Though is that he's not somebody who has blown up the need it compromises right. He defects sometimes. A bill is going to go through the Senate with eighty votes and he casts a No. He says we should hold out for more when they needed. Every Democrat Gamma crat to vote for the affordable. Care Act when they needed every Democrat to vote for the Dodd. Frank Bill for the Obama Stimulus For anything like that. He is there. This stimulus. Package is is not perfect but it will go a long way in Vermont and throughout this country to rebuild crumbling infrastructure move us to energy independence sustainable energy protect working families hurt by this recession and most importantly create millions of good paying jobs. He understands how the political system works. And when you have to take half a loaf he was known own in the House of Representatives for getting a lot of bipartisan amendments passed Senator John McCain of Arizona and I have tried our best the come forward with an agreement. It's an agreement which I'm sure he is. Not One hundred percent happy about and I can fully assure you I am not one hundred percent happy about. I would have written a very very different. So it's true. He's not the greatest legislative titan in the history of the Senate but he's also not this ignoramus that some of his supporters on twitter. Her sometimes seem like he's been a member of Congress for a long time. He knows how hard it is to get coalitions together for bills and he knows the importance of making compromises to get things things done so I don't think there's any reason to worry that as president he would be unable to deal with the realities.

"Thank you thank you? Let me say tonight that this victory here is the beginning of the end. FOR DONALD TRUMP UP L.. Nilsson tell the people where you are. Where did you reporting for votes from right now? So I am in the Field House of southern New Hampshire University where Bernie Sanders just addressed a very loud. The crowd people are hugging each other. I don't know if you can hear that but there are some chanting going on over here. It was kind of funny seeing Bernie like a man who doesn't doesn't smile that often I feel like he was just beaming. When he came came out tonight and address? People do any of his followers of editing. Interesting to say to you while you were there tight here especially the ones that have been with him in two thousand sixteen feel oh like they have never been this close to him winning the nomination like I think that there's this palpable feeling that he could really do it. This time Especially especially if he does well with with black voters and Latino voters that that he has a real path to the Democratic nomination and people here. We're really excited about that. What the other thing was? I actually talked to somebody who was from Berlin Germany. Who came all the way out here? I mean he I think he he works in the. US Ask sometimes but He he volunteers volunteering with this sanders campaign for the past few weeks along with he said some people from Norway and some people from Denmark sure they love socialism out there yeah. I Love Democratic Socialism out there and I mean yeah I mean he was sort of saying like he has certainly never never been this excited about a an American candidate. I mean he was just saying it's really exciting to see a candidate fighting so openly for a lot of the things that Europe already be has basically a lot of the programs that they already have. And how is turnout tonight. People were saying that the turnout in Iowa didn't Great Democrats are planning to beat Donald Trump in the general election election. How was it tonight New Hampshire? It was actually better than than twenty sixteen levels according to some of the initial reports that we saw. I'm not ready to make any big big predictions yet on how this could impact general election turnout but the other thing is you know. It's also hard to judge because there was no competitive Republican Primary Mary here so it's tough to tell how Republicans might also turn out in the general election. How about second in third? How other people do yes? So I mean the big surprise tonight was With Amy Klobuchar. There had been some polling recently showing that she was doing all of a sudden a lot better than expected. But you have to remember. She came out of Iowa in fifth place and I think that the big turning point for her in New Hampshire came from a combination of a lot of people that were still undecided and didn't know who they wanted to support maybe some more voters that we're looking at more moderate candidates and she had a really good debate performance here last week. I think that you know a lot of times debates. Don't necessarily change things in a race. But at this in this case it seemed like people started having these internal conversations and dialogues this weekend even up until the final day or two you. So what does this mean for the campaigns of Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden or they kinda now on life support. Yeah I mean Biden. Biden didn't even stick around in New Hampshire surfer. His election party tonight. He went straight to South Carolina and address his New Hampshire supporters from there so he is really really hoping that he can kind of bolster his his support in his campaign among African American voters in South Carolina and Let's voters in Nevada. OUGHTA but I mean he has now lost and lost badly. I mean he came in fourth place in Iowa and he came in fifth. Place this in New Hampshire. That's not just a loss that's like a trouncing and so I just think that making a pitch especially making a pitch on electability abilities have voters in Nevada and South Carolina is GonNa be really tough when you have the record. That Biden has so far and as far as Warren. I mean this is a really tough state for her hurdle lose I mean she is a Massachusetts senator. So she's from right over the border. She was a well known entity in New Hampshire. It's not like she was starting with low name recognition like her her campaign sent out a memo today about their path forward and talking about some of these more diverse. She's going to be campaigning in Virginia. Pretty soon but this is not good for her and her campaign was counting on some momentum and they just did not get that tonight at all but it was an even tougher night for two who of the candidates who dropped out right. Yes so Andrew Yang and Colorado Senator Michael Bennet both dropped out tonight and I. I think both of them were kind of pinning a lot of their hopes on New Hampshire. I mean Andrew Yang had spent a lot of time campaigning. Here and I mean I had heard from a lot of voters that said that they really liked him and they really liked his message. I was kind of going into election night looking to see if he would get some sort of bump but I just think that people full were so concerned with electability. This year that I think a lot of folks didn't really want to throw their vote to somebody who was unknown and two. They didn't really think could it'd be trump And the same thing with Michael Bennett. I mean he had staked his entire campaign on New Hampshire but he just hadn't really been getting any traction for months. He had been unstuck at somewhere between zero and one percent in the polls campaigning. Like the old New Hampshire way he was doing all these house. Parties that Lauren. Children talked about in Tuesday's episode and he just wasn't getting anywhere. He was gaining no traction so he had the college tonight. Well you know what L.. I think before we go to the break. We're GONNA take a minute to remember our friends. Senator Michael Bennet Andrew Young. Okay sounds good..

"Sanders. I'd argue that. Given given the fact that Hillary Clinton won the popular vote and just narrowly lost the Electoral College. By seventy thousand votes distributed over three states picking Bernie Sanders offers in having Bernie Sanders strategically deployed in those states. Specifically Michigan probably does what Hillary Clinton needs in order to win that two thousand sixteen election action however she doesn't win that twenty sixteen election which is very unfortunate for the country but is actually good. News for Bernie Sanders is presidential political. Oh prospects because now he's positioned for another run and he's been doing radio for the last decade getting out to over for a million people during that two thousand and four to let's say twenty thirteen run with Thom Hartmann's radio program. He was doing Ed Schultz he was on. MSNBC AS as a regular fixture prior to two thousand twelve he now has his relationship with the young Turks. That's been formalized. He's got an online news outlet that's got his back that it has even better reach. In some cases than a lot of the cable news shows and most importantly now Democratic primary voters had seen Bernie I sanders is name on a Democratic primary ballot and they had cast a vote for Bernie Sanders. Maybe they cast that vote for Bernie Sanders entirely because they didn't want Hillary Clinton to be the nominee but they've gone in and they voted for Bernie Sanders wants which makes them more likely to defend defend their vote for Bernie Sanders and makes them more likely to go and vote for Bernie Sanders a second time. He might be the first person you consider before you consider under other options. You might want to see what other people are up to in this next election cycle but a burns on the ballot. Bernie is you know what Bernie's about Bernie's gotTa Brandon's built on consistency as well so he's got a lot of things that are moving favorably in his direction. But let's focus a little bit more on the Young Turks here for this section of the story story Jank Uber. In July of twenty seventeen would begin making the case for Bernie Sanders Hill. And many other places Senator Bernie Sanders. They explain explain who battled Hillary Clinton in the two thousand sixteen Democratic primary and created a revolutionary movement among millennials having discussions about running for president. So let's give you more details Jeff we were former Bernie Sanders campaign manager saying quote. He's keeping the door open Bernie Sanders Associate Saying is he considering in running for president quote. Yes is the answer. How's that for clear that same SOCI- continues? He thinks he's earned the right to run again. Dan He believes if he would have been the Democrat candidate he would have won against trump given that he had a twelve point. Lead on Election Day That certainly Is Far more more likely than what happened. With Hillary Clinton. There's no doubt about that following the results of the two thousand sixteen election. These numbers are cited often by Clinton critics in Sanders supporters alike. Who use these numbers to make the case that Hillary Clinton was in fact the weaker of the two candidates and I think that that is basically correct correct however I do think that in some cases the sanders supporters? Overstate the case slightly with these numbers. I think that have sanders have been selected in a general election. These numbers tighten up a little bit because the term socialist is something that for boomers and to a lesser extent Gen xers. There's really anyone who grew up prior to what we refer to as the end of history period which you can kind of maybe start at nine hundred ninety. So millennials millennials. Sales grew up after the fall. The Berlin Wall after the end of the Cold War so socialism and socialist doesn't have the baggage gauge that it did for someone who grew up in the seventies and the eighties in heard socialism and socialist all the time in the news in a very different context next sanders rhetorical. Embrace of this word is going to always make people in that age cohorts kind of uneasy even if if they're loosely supporters of the policy that Sanders is talking about if it gets marketed to them as socialism. I think that has a bit of a chilling effect act however where I think the case for Bernie Sanders is very strong is in terms of excitement. He gets to pick a VP and his VP choice. Almost certainly would have been Elizabeth Warren during that Twenty Sixteen Election Cycle. Maybe kind of an outside chance it would have been Tulsi Gabbard. She would have even been a pretty strong choice at that point in time to things change in politics as we have all seen during this twenty twenty election election cycle to and some of those relationships are a little bit different now and some of the help or the hindrances that those people might bring to a ticket are a little bit different than they would have been in twice sixteen but either one would have been a strong choice and there's a lot of new miracle data that suggests that Sanders almost paradoxically because the conventional wisdom is that a more moderate candidate does better in the mid West I think sanders would have performed better than Hillary Clinton in those Blue Wall states where Hillary Clinton had either a hard time and underperformed like in Minnesota or straight up lost like in Michigan I think Bernie Sanders is able to to hold the Blue Wall and I think with a female vice president pick. He's able to assuage the concerns of people who are voting voting for Hillary Clinton. Because they want to see the first woman president. There are people who are going to be Hillary loyalists. You're never going to fully take the sting off of them. I think they drag themselves to the ballot box but they don't love it but they go and drag themselves to the ballot box. Hey I've got some sympathy for those people. In this scenario their preferred political political candidate would have been denied their chance at the presidential nomination. Not once but twice here. That's going to sting a little bit. Especially if you've been on that Rod for fifteen in sixteen years so I understand where they're coming from but I think that ultimately when progressives make a case here that Bernie Sanders would've won they're standing on pretty pretty solid ground and it's far more true than it's overstated. one more from that same associate. The last thing he's going to do is step aside and and led Joe Biden taking so of course. Why should he's the most popular politician in the country? On what planet should the most Popular Guy Guy Step aside for people who are less popular. That doesn't make any sense at all in the context of politics but to be fair there is that issue whereas Joe Biden's a spring chicken ono. No no right Joe. Biden's only one year younger than Bernie Sanders. So if you think Bernie Sanders shouldn't run because of age. You should immediately pressure Joe Biden to get out of the race funny. How no one his doing that? Isn't that weird. I'll say it. I think that once you reach the age of eighty year role in politics should be done as an elected official official you should be advising other elected officials but I think that people generally get old and die in their eighties. And I don't think that's is going to change anytime soon. and rather than have people in their eighties vested with that much power. I think that they're better. Served offering bringing advice to people who are a little bit younger who have still a lot of experience can benefit from getting some of the experience of those advanced aged people people in their eighty S. But maybe yeah we should actually be looking at people a little bit younger thinking about having a cutoff page. As a general rule of thumb H is an issue on the campaign trail. It's not just trump's coherency. Although he seems to be exhibiting certain signs of aging Joe Joe Biden on the campaign trail has had numerous outings and appearances were age would appear to be a factor the whole episode where we discussed ghost looked fat. I mean my best defense. For Joe Biden there is that the guy's never been particularly articulate. And he's less articulate Hewlett. Now that he's older Bernie Sanders had a stint put in his heart during this campaign. Any looked pretty rough up until he had that stint put into his heart so ages benefactor for him as well. I don't think that's actually unreasonable. But I do think that often times people have brought it up with one candidate and not not really considered it fully with the other how no one brings up. Joe Biden's age even though they're pretty much the same age it's almost like they don't like Bernie any sanders and are making up excuses. Almost I've got more on that in a little bit but is he running while there's a lot of telltale signs earlier this month. He traveled able to Iowa for the first time since. Losing the state's caucuses the Clinton during the Democratic primary and I think you've got a sense of where the story goes from there Bernie Sanders decides to run for president yet again. This time around. He has a different media strategy. I think that media strategy is informed formed in large part by his experiences in the media to this point so he realized he had a gap in terms of media in the twenty A16 campaign. Now he's short up a relationship with the young Turks. That relationship is strong and healthy. As he goes into the twenty twenty primaries the young Turks would actually endorse him in late. Twenty nineteen a number of hosts including Jank Uber would make very public in prominent endorsements on the show so I think that the editors has been opened into all the candidates. We've interviewed more than half the candidates here. We've had amazing conversations with people all across the spectrum. All the way from John Cleaning Tim Ryan to Tulsi Gabbard and injuring We gave all those candidates. oftentimes they're very first shot In front of a national audience and no matter how much we agreed or disagreed with them we respected them and gave tough but fair interviews And we don't do company endorsements of the Young Turks All of our hosts have different opinions. Our reporters are due objective journalism. And I'm incredibly proud of them but the host gift to endorse Whoever they want so? I'm going to do an endorsement today. oh so I want to tell you guys If for those of you who suspected That I love Elizabeth Warren It's true I do I think she's fantastic. I think she's smart strategic incredibly progressive. I think she's done minor. Miracles like The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. She did that when she wasn't even a senator And to this this day That is a work of wonder if she could get that passed. Republicans and Democrats who are both opposed to it and we have the great honor of having to giant progressives in this race having said that our endorse Bernie Sanders I'm officially endorsing Senator Bernie Sanders as the Democratic nominee for president. In this time around Bernie Sanders is press. Relation team is staffed with people who have worked as journalist. Louis Brianna joy gray is press secretary. She has written for the intercept the Guardian and Salon. She also has had to delete a number number of different tweets from the past. She has talked about voting for Jill Stein. In Two thousand sixteen. This is not been super useful for Bernie Sanders as he's trying to be a unifying in figure certainly something that people can point to critically and then he's also brought on David Sirotta who has worked as a progressive activists columnist in the past and was getting critiqued fairly heavily in late twenty nine because his calms were being pointed to as being very critical of a number of Democratic candidates in a way that would seem to advantage one specific candid over. All the other candidates he ended up deleting twenty thousand of his tweets that were comments about other political figures prior to joining up with Sander's campaign in early twenty nineteen but stood on a hill in December two thousand eighteen saying that anyone who questioned his motives doing coverage Ridge of work that included articles like Beryl. Rourke is the new Obama and that's the last thing we need. He said that anyone who would question. His motives moves quotes illustrate. Something important that while Dem's derived trump's war on the press. They're our cadre of DEM's who try to bully campaign finance reporters quarters. They report facts that are inconvenient to Democratic candidates. He also tweeted that quote if you are a reporter in DC or think tanker you she everything in front of you as a political scheme and can't fathom the idea of a non partisan issue based mission electoral politics is the prison which you view the world so you assume that everything is political so essentially anyone who thought the David Sirotta was doing anything to advantage political candidate let alone Bernie Sanders. They completely had their head in the clouds. A couple of months later he would join up with the sanders campaign..

"The woman with the hi Bernie I really appreciated your explanation of the healthcare plan and how we are going to pay for it one thing that I just have a question about if I misunderstood was will that four percent tax be a flat tax or is it going to be progressive so that someone that makes two hundred and fifty thousand dollars a year are they going to pay the four percent that someone who makes sixty thousand dollars a screened in this case yes but we have a number of years as my friends on Wall Street and the billionaire class no we have a wealth tax and in general a progressive income tax to make sure thank you for raising this issue but in the midst of massive income and wealth inequality the people on top will pay substantially more in taxes but not the health care they'll pay for percent of their income okay ma'am right here I woke up this morning very angry and then I heard about what trump did and I can't call him president because he is not a president and I'm tired of hearing about young black people getting shot I just I don't know what to do I'm the one thing we cannot do is allowed trump or anybody else to put us in a state of despair because sometimes we want to do that it's so hot I'm into believing everybody feels like you read the papers my god you know talk about climate change look about the potential of war for the sake of our kids and future generations so I got four kids and seven grandchildren we cannot allow ourselves to be in a state of depression or despair and what this campaign is about and I'll give you good news the other side of that the spell is on I don't mean to be posting here but in a we have in this state and all over this country just hundreds of thousands of people were working hard to try to change this country they were strong grassroots movement I've been all over this country I want you to know they're beautiful people young people who really are prepared to fight for justice and and so much in the know that but in terms of you know your raise the issue of people being shot African Americans being shot disproportionately criminal justice is an issue right up there on my agenda okay and in terms of criminal justice very briefly we have got to ask ourselves how do we have more people in jail we have over two million people in jail today disproportionately African American Latino and native Americans aren't so what I believe that instead of I believe that we should invest in our young people in jobs and education so that when kids are in school they have the tools that they need not to drop out not to hang out on the street corner but to become productive members of society we invest in that rather than more jails and incarceration art the other thing we do is end cash bells and when I want to talk about when I talk about ending care spell they're all four hundred thousand people now what you hear this this is you talk about criminal justice this is criminal injustice you got four hundred thousand people in jail today right now who haven't been convicted of anything how does not you know about that okay how do people end up in jail if they haven't been convicted help me out here the campaign so your arrested may be arrested for good reasons maybe for that reason may be innocent maybe you're not but if I put you in jail and you can't afford the five hundred Bucks you need for bell you stay in jail edit if you are innocent you don't you don't reach a plea bargain which has you pleading guilty maybe when you weren't guilty in the first place all right we're gonna and the cash will tell you something else what we're gonna and maybe people agree with me maybe you don't but we will and live anything to say about it the so called war on drugs.

"But this can never come through a political process that has to come through revolutionary struggle through a dictatorship of the proletariat that we'll take charge of the economy in the policy and civil society and everything else and at some point in the very distant future will wither away. This was a distinction in the early twentieth century you can hear echoes of revolution. And Sanders talk. He's an air to to the democratic socialist tradition of Deb's. But if you ask does he want to extinguish private enterprise does he wanna have the state takeover corporations? I would say no, neither does Elizabeth. Warren aide them is it a meaningful distinction for years. I should say and democratic socialism pick up on one thing Gary said, which I think one difference that seems really salient for me is the fact that Elizabeth. Warren, very explicitly came out in two thousand eighteen and denied having any commitment to socialism. She said, I'm I'm committed capitalist. I want accountable capitalism. I want restrained capitalism. But I don't understand myself to be a socialist. Now, I agree that Bernie doesn't seem to have a kind of he's not calling for expropriation of private property or state control of the economy. But one thing that he does seem to retain a commitment to socialism as kind of political movement. So the language of revolution. You know, what came out of the twenty sixteen election is the kind of our revolution movement, which has tried to build a kind of grass roots project in the variety of local contacts that does try to push the agenda he's outlined Medicare for all free public college. So it does seem to me that where on policy, and I think we can talk about this in some ways, I feel like Elizabeth Warren has come out for very concrete policy proposals. And in some ways has been pushing Bernie to be much more concrete in a variety of areas or to even take up questions that he hadn't taken up in two thousand sixteen. But I think Bernie Sanders comes out of sort of grassroots movement politics in a way that Elizabeth Warren dozens, and so I think that seems to be a really important difference between the two of them if you talk to the. The jury between wanting to break up Amazon whichever of the big tech firms. You take and wanting to empower the workers to take control that is potentially a big difference. I mean of a breaking up monopolies monopolies that can be teddy Roosevelt. Right. I mean, he wasn't a socialist. I didn't think he was not. He was right. Going back to the history with Deb's and so on one level because Elizabeth Warren is just much more concrete about this. Sometimes she sounds more radical because there's something about the thought of taking these John corporations and breaking them up. That sounds like the state's gonna have to a heck of a law on another count. The really radical idea is work is control because control as a socialist. Yeah. I think I think that's right. And I think goes back again to this question about what Elizabeth Warren has even in her time as Senator the kinds of policies pushed, so if you think of something like her big signature project has been the consumer finance protection bureau. A really I mean, very important chievements an attempt to restrain predatory credit at lending. But it is a it is a way of using kind of bureaucratic state apparatus to constrain private actors. You know, she she did a lot of work to make sure that that agency wouldn't be a politicized agency. Actually. So there's only on her view. There would only have been one person appointed and everyone else would have been kind of career bureaucrat? So she does have this. I think a little bit of a commitment to de politicize ation in some ways as a way of installation or restraining private power that can be a powerful tool, especially in that kind of context in the context of finance, but I think. What's peeling about? The Bernie Sanders project is in some ways..

"And bernie i gotta ask is he right about that was there ever a time you are a little unsure about the direction he was taking it's a little bit of both actually because if thing is he says that i've never said it to his face you have to remember to you know i sometimes not so much in the early days because i was a little little intimidated by the musical muscle and talent around me and i was kind of a green kid and this was all new to me so i i didn't make too i just did what i did and gave it to him but over the over the years of this day i came became much more musically proficient and obviously came out of my shell and so in the same way as now for the last few decades you know it's all i i will give him ideas i will i will give him a blueprint idea point jimena musical direction whether or not he adidas to that is is neither here nor there sometimes he does sometimes he doesn't yet there are times when obviously when i write something i have a preconceived i dear of where it where it's where i think it should go because i have a melodic idea in my head because i write sort of coating on guitar so it gives me a sense of melody of rhythmic fail so you kind of go with what you've got when you're writing it but once it gets in his hands it could go totally three sixty and go somewhere else and for the most part i always it's it's either better than what i'd imagined an obviously it certainly more melodic ly intricate than i ever imagined because i'm not musically proficient like that.
