"TV. It's your show about the people places and the issues that matter the most to you. Now here's your host Dave. Graham Good Ramani is February. The twelve thousand and twenty one day after the the New Hampshire primary and Bernie Sanders emerges there as with a narrow victory over the second place. Finisher people to judge the a year former mayor of South Bend. Indiana and Apparently The Tribune of the sort of moderate wing of the Democratic Party people judge is emerging as that. And we're going to be talking with a couple different people maybe a few different people on the court in the course of the next to our radio program here about the results in New Hampshire. What they mean for the remaining remaining primaries out there and who might emerge as the as the Democratic nominee to take on donald trump in November? And we have a couple of different peoples mentioned. We're GONNA be talking later in the second part of this show with Linda. Fowler political science professor from Dartmouth College College just over the river New Hampshire so we. We're glad to get somebody from New Hampshire to pine on the New Hampshire primary this morning but we also have vermonter who's been watching all of this stuff closely and Matthew Dickinson is going to be joining me in just a moment in from Middlebury College He is someone I've been wanting to get on the show for a while. Allison really glad to have wrangled Matthew Dickinson for this morning and in between we're GonNa Sandwich another actually a college affiliated person who is Richard Schneider. He's not GonNa Talk. What is what the New Hampshire primary? But he's GonNa talk to about the fact that his presidency at Norwich University is coming to a close he's retiring this year and Just completing a one hundred hundred million dollar fundraising campaign. Actually they. I think they needed a hundred and twenty one billion dollars down university. They've been spending some in on some beautiful beautiful new buildings and a campus really looks. Looks terrific these days. So we're GONNA be talking with President Richard Schneider of Norwich University in the second half hour of the program this morning. But let's get get right into the New Hampshire primary With Matt Dickinson. I believe is on the line from Bill Bray this morning. Good morning morning. Thanks so much for joining me. So Ah You know. I've been watching some of the commentary coming out of New Hampshire. It looks like People are basically saying about Bernie Sanders. A win is a win but it wasn't exactly trouncing for sure it wasn't historically Is Percentage about twenty six percent that is the lowest percentage total for a winner in the Democratic primary Going back to nineteen fifty to scan my records properly take nothing away from it. I mean he finished above above everybody else. But if you're thinking of this is Defining victory that clears the field. I think that's a misconception. Yeah I think that Bernie Sanders. ZANDER is Is definitely you know. He's got a he's got his His base People Liking it a little bit to president trump and in terms of the sort of fervent. See of his followers and the the intensity with which people were following him but does this really indicate that these been unable to expand his base in in start bringing in more people. I think that's exactly right. I was at his rally him over the weekend in New Hampshire and two things struck me wanted was an enthusiastic crowd out. But there weren't a people there out of curiosity Remember about forty percent of New Hampshire's went into those last weekend uncertain who they were GonNa vote for. They weren't showing up Bernie Bernie Sanders rally as far as I could tell he had A committed group of passionate Bernie supporters but exit polls suggest most of the Bernie supporters. That made their mind up several months ago that they were going to vote for him. So you know you look at. His coalition is passionate its core supporters. They're GONNA come out. The the question for him has always been can expand that and when you look at the messages and again I was at their rallies over the weekend that Peter Budaj edge and Amy Klobuchar they're making the case. The Bernie divides as much as he unite. And that's not gonNA BE ENOUGH TO BE DONALD TRUMP. Yeah you know Bernie. Sanders has has a has a record in Vermont in which he has been able to reach out to many different spots on the on the political spectrum and attract actually some Republican votes. If you you just look at vote totals from say Townsend Republican parts of the state and so on in his in his congressional in Senate elections. He has drawn support from from even Republicans Vermont. Ramana certainly a lot of independence and so Why is that not translating into into this presidential race well. You're exactly right I mean let's be clear When we look at his support in two thousand sixteen in New Hampshire a significant amount of it came from independence The difficulty I I think in two thousand sixteen he was the alternative to the establishment candidate. Who was not well liked Hillary Clinton and so you can understand why independence looking for an alternative to the parties hardee's would either go for him or as we know? Many of them went for Donald Trump to anti-establishment candidates now in two thousand twenty. The dynamics I think have changed changed a little bit. It's no longer enough for Democrats to have a protest vote. They want somebody who can beat Donald Trump and there are number of candidates out there saying look at Bernie's record. He cannot do that. This is not Vermont God bless Vermont. But we're a blue state. This is a presidential election that needs to draw on on a diverse coalition. And Bernie's not the guy to do that. I think that is the message that Buddha judging closure have been running on and Biden will to let me get to South Carolina data and it resonated. Yeah I mean clearly. But there's this disconnect disconnect and I'm still trying to figure out between Sanders Sanders record a and admittedly Vermont's a tiny electorate and may have some weird stuff going on here that just isn't translatable nationwide. But the extent of which Bernie Sanders has been able to attract support from across the ideological spectrum in Vermont. I it just seems to be kind of odd that he has not really been able due to been able to do that At least so far doesn't look like it. He has not been able to break out of his his core very liberal or left leaning base of in the national in the in. Either in Iowa or New Hampshire so far and I'm just wondering is he going to be able to attract Labor's afford as is that something that he is going to be able to Kind of beat. The Amy Klobuchar is Joe. Biden's and Peter Budaj is of the world to To Union endorsements and in upcoming primary states. Well that's a great question. We know exit polls suggest that the New Hampshire supporters for Sanders were disproportionate liberal and disproportionately young Looking ahead I assume he's going to continue drawing on that group but one of the issues that came up Enclosure really hit it this at her. Rally Sander Support for Medicare for all Closures responses. AWW YOU'RE GONNA throw many people including people of labor unions who have signed contracts That have very Generous healthcare our benefits. And you're basically we're going to throw them off those healthcare benefits and we see you know. There's been a couple of labor unions in Nevada According to news reports the upcoming crucial caucus doc estate better urging members of the vote against Bernie for precisely that same reason so yeah I mean. It's it's one thing to into win in races. That are not very closely contested in a small state like Vermont and if you're an independent or Somebody somebody who is unsure to vote for but you know Sanders GonNa win. You have less incentive to sort of consider other candidates but in the national sphere. I think he's GonNa say Jason Headwinds going ahead. No let's talk a little bit about of Sanders support or or how strong it is how soft it is whatever in the African African American community and a among Latinos and and other Other folks that you know more diverse at the Racial States more Not phrasing this very well but I think you know what I mean you. One of the upcoming races Latte let Latin Latin Latino Ginobili understand make up about thirty percent of the electorate at least in the Democratic primary in Nevada As it has been working to organize a in this In Latino communities out there but this is the crucial question going ahead I think not just for Sanders booed and closure because Biden and Joe Biden. The former vice president has staked his campaign on Attracting Latino and African American both as you point out data growing population poppulation of Latino voters there South Carolina majority minority Ken Sanders Expand His coalition. This was the Kelly's he'll in two thousand sixteen eighteen The reason that Clinton was able to beat him overall was because of her support among communities of color to his credit. Sandra has responded to that. He has a shaken up his staffy as a lot of people of color in very visible positions. I was at his rally in New Hampshire Nina Turner the former state. Senator from Ohio gave I'll barnstorming speech on his behalf. But we don't have any evidence yet about whether that's resonating with these communities of color We just don't know at this point. anecdotal evidence. I have students from you. Know African American communities down in Atlanta who say among younger voters have collar Sanders supporters actually rising. It's the older voters that are resistant. So far As far as we can tell but all of this is you know it's somewhat. We're just guessed the meeting without any actual voting at this stage. It's really fascinating to me because sanders certainly has a record. You know he famously marched with Martin Luther King at the at the March turn Washington in nineteen sixty three and and was involved in the early Early efforts at the University of Chicago to to DC bring desegregation there and and so on and so forth and And yet it seemed in two thousand sixteen race I remember I was still a reporter for the Associated Press back then and I was covering brings the very reading various stories about the about sanders candidacy just from his record in Vermont. And so on and the What are what are the issues? Kinda came up was it seemed as though his his his sort of understanding of the dynamics of race in America were almost in amber something they were sort sort of preserved from fifty years ago and and the needed some some updating. Do you think do you think there's some truth to that a NBC has he. Has he been able to do that. Well Dave I think this is You've hit on a crucial point when you hear his rallies and we've seen this in a couple of debate performances is when he's asked about race relations or issues related to civil rights he instinctively pivot to his economic message and his argument is. Yeah the way you deal with racial inequality racial bias and so on his. You know the rising tide let's Give them economic opportunity we needed to..

"You can do anything you you want and you know. Are you in the book that if you look at the differences between Sanders. Democrats are Clo- Char Democrats the most moderate or the most Progressive Democrats. The differences between those camps are vanishingly small compared to the differences between gene all of them and both donald trump any radicalized republican party. I was in out this week and one of the most striking things to me is all. These voters were undecided. Not because they have little knowledge but because they have a lot of knowledge and they are desperately worried about winning winning this election and they want to find the candidate who can both restore some old values but also transform the country and I think the party's politicians have to be as serious about this. As the party's voters are in these kind of fights are not not going to help defeat Donald Trump. Yeah and very true and the fight. Yeah they'll find as you said. I think it's a good subtitle. They will fight all the way to losing. I'm emily you came from the world of the Center for American progress so you come from the sort of big thinking about this as even speaking with Hillary Clinton did you get the sense that in her view or even in your view just looking at it. Is this election about fundamental change or is this an election about safety about protecting the country from really kind one of the monarchy of Donald Trump. It's a great question and I think it is about fundamental change but it's how you view that question of fundamental change so sanders is obviously pitching a structural change a holistic structural change. But when you go over and look at what we consider like moderate candidates like Biden Buddha. The judge they're they're offering different kind of fundamental change but that is a change backwards basically to go back to a time. That feels like we can't even fathom it and they do come from a place of trying to figure out what their specific steps are to get there. I think that that's been lost in a little bit of their message. I said I think that Warren was very good at outlining it for a long period of time as as her policy platforms. Where we're rolling out a does feel like people want I mean they just want to turn the page and they're just trying to figure out the best way to do it and they can't figure out if the best way to do it it's Br is? Burn it all down or to try to go back to some norms they understand and and then move forward from there. That's totally the same thing in Iowa. Go on go on a little bit into that EJ because that is the question is is the solution to trump to burn it down and rebuild the brand new healthcare system or woman be president or is is it to sort of go down the clover Char Buddha Judge Biden route of sort of more of a sort of a safe kind of holding pattern of what seems like normal but it seems distant. I do you get a sense from talking to people which thing they think is more chain or just go with the billionaire. Who could be trouble? I think that I think a lot of people in the party a lot of grassroots voters. Think that this restoration. Transformation argument is a bit of a false choice because obviously Everybody wants to restore certain basic values. That trump is trampling on but there are also a lot of people at the very same time who we say restoring. Those values is going to require change. It's GONNA require change to get rid of some of the conditions that led to Donald Donald Trump in the first place and it's because people hold these two things together at the same time that they're having difficulty deciding among among these candidates where the emphasis of one set is a little different than the emphasis of the other said. I think about the word restoration. What people really you're looking for is to restore progress? which itself is about making fundamental change over time and for goodness sake whether you did single single payer or whether you did a public option you would end up covering all Americans and that's the bottom line? Everybody ought to be talking about. So we're in this state that is almost entirely white state but And this is where the decisions starts but a lot of the fight is over then who can move on from here and attract. The Obama coalition the very diverse a- Bamako limit a lot of young voters. That were that interested in politics before you have. This week's is an in depth are piece that came out that talked about any char's record as a prosecutor she may now see what it is like to become the Harris Arizona and face questions about justice that are uncomfortable that people to judge is still struggling with dealing with how to talk to African Americans and non white voters so there is a question of not just who can be restored of candidate but who can be a broad-based candidate and is is anybody sort of winning that conversation among these voters. I'll I'll just put up as you're talking to the polling that shows Joe Biden Still Ahead Bernie Sanders just behind him and sort of that polling in Iowa. You're talking look. When it comes sues Senator Klobuchar? I've been writing. I wrote about this right after she did her. Her Blizzard announcement her Buffalo Blizzard announcement where she had had an opening to talk to African Americans beyond the talking point of I believe in criminal justice and I'm going to be a president who does something about it. Philander Casteel was killed by police in Saint in suburb of Saint Paul Minnesota right next door to where she was a prosecutor perfect opportunity for her to say his name and send a signal to African Americans that she sees them and she hears them up beyond just saying criminal justice and she didn't do it and my thinking about her has always been what happens after Iowa. The I think no matter who wins Iowa if it's not Joe Biden no matter who wins New Hampshire. If it's not Joe Biden. They're going to hit that South Carolina Wall because African American voters voters. I think especially if if I o n New Hampshire don't choose. Joe Biden Black Voters in South Carolina and then three days later in super a two states will have their opportunity to have their voices voices heard and felt and I think that we have to be. It's the Obama coalition the when I hear Obama Coalition. I'm just thinking of young voters. I'm thinking of older voters an older African American voters for whom this election. I mean one they vote and historically vote and two. They are very concerned about what's going to happen to this country. They live through the fifties and in the sixties and thought things had gotten reasonably better and now to see it all burning down before they is there is they want someone who can get trump about office. Yeah I mean this is a rare election Jennifer teaches with you on this where it is not. It is not clear that the person who wins this state Iowa Woah is then going to be rocketed toured South Carolina. Because I totally agree with Donovan. I could see different people winning all the first three or even Bernie Sanders. ZANDER's doing really well here. Doing really well in New Hampshire and then when it gets to South Carolina older black voters will still say Biden. And there won't be a sling forward for a Buddha judge or Biden or Bernie. It's not necessarily true that I would determines what happens in South Carolina this here so I just don't. I'm just not sure that South Doc Carolina's GonNa matter. I mean South Carolina's on Saturday. Super Tuesday is on Tuesday. Yeah it's three days I mean I think if Tuesday's also full of southern states it also I just think I just super is going to matter. I think the funny thing about being an Iowa people South Carolina matters because Iowa wants to know that you can do well in South Carolina and so that they are. They're there's sort of taking that into account but I think that in the end we're going to the South Carolina results are not going to stick with us for very long because they are Super Tuesday's so soon soon but it's going to be indicative for us what is going to happen but I do think that if if Sanders wins in Iowa he will win. I believe he will win. In New Hampshire UH and then and then that is a very difficult dynamic to stop. Because I've been on the other end I've been on the winning end of that and then at that but like even even though it's just these two states when somebody wins both of them Then you're you know it's it's a it's a it's a big burst. Momentum now Biden wins here I think we're in a very very different situation. Yeah and it's interesting because when Bloomberg will start winning but he has a lot that he could pick up from the table with money and I would say that if let's say Sanders wins here remembering a way you know. Brock Obama one here and then he had that stutter. In as you. Well know in New Hampshire. Then he gave that speech we can. You can split a loss as well as it makes you win New Hampshire you. Can you can play. You can play both but I can't. I can't emphasize and how undecided Iowa still. Yes they really like any any one of those top four or five candidates. I'm telling you I've been talking to people who were like. I'm kind of deciding between worn and blueberries like it doesn't make any sense heavily. Jonathan Cape Barred E. J. Dion Jennifer Palmieri great panel. Thank you guys very much and coming up. My next guest tells us how to argue with zombies say and the unemployment rate is the lowest in fifty years more Americans nearly one hundred sixty million or employer-employee imploded than ever before the African American Unemployment Hispanic American employment to Asian American unemployment has the lowest rate ever recorded if all that that is solely solely in their words for his personal and political gain in not in the best interest of the of the American people than can I say God bless him.

"Segment and now roughs Bowlen's animal of Oh yeah or and move the week this week. The Indian giant Squirrel. We're a squirrel podcast. Lately F why it has been called an exotic rainbow rodent which is directly with the kids called me in middle school pull up photos of the Indian giant squirrel on the Google machine. Right now you know how the segment works animal. The week every time we do an animal the week he should pull out your iphone. Hopefully you have an iphone -joyed freaks and you and you type in the name of the animal in this case the Indian giant squirrel. And you look at the beautiful photos under the Images Tab ebb as I speak to you about this Woodland critter and get you learnt. It looks like a squirrel that has escaped from Dr Seuss Book and now lives lives in our realm. Probably tormenting the Indian people as the squirrels here in America torment me. You may be asking yourself. How giant is is a giant squirrel? I'll be honest with you. I was disappointed when I look the part up. So this is one of the largest squirrels the Indian giant squirrel with a head head and body length. Who the fuck uses that phrase by the way ahead in body is it tall it is just say long it is ahead inviting ten inches to one foot eight inches a tale that is about the same or somewhat longer in a weight of like three and a half to four and a half pounds basically which to me does not seem that giant? Like that's like the squirrels in my backyard. So the giant squirrel they should named it the Indian Rainbow Squirrel because it's legitimately rainbow colored. It's not giant poor naming. Whoever did that I'm going to you know? Let's just put it on Darwin. Let's say it was Darwin even even though this is nowhere near where he was discovering animals Scores for code contains oranges shades of Magenta purple. I mean it's one of the more beautiful colorful animals ever seen the problem is it's a fucking squirrel. What are you GonNa do with that? It's not a parrot put in a cage and teach it to speak. It's a fucking squirrel. What are the colorful animals? You make as pets not a squirrel. I know that the entire color spectrum is contained in their backs the entire we're spectrum literally the rainbow and they differ from all other scores in one particular way. You know how squirrels will be. I know I'll tell you there in my backyard right right now as we speak because I'm not home there to protect the backyard. Keep a fucking eye on them. They're in the backyard and what they do is thousands of acorns fall from the tree in my backyard backyard and they get knocked from the tree and there's rain and there's wind you know should hits the ground though scores run around the back yard. They find acorns in the either munch them up into a million little pieces. The dogs can eat the pieces in that they can eat the pieces to or they bury them shits all over the yard. Tiny Ho go out do a whole fucking Burien acorn cover the whole run to another place and they do this all day every day until my dogs come out and disturb the peace and they ended up in the trees and around the fences and jumping and then later when the dogs will back inside they come out and they continue their business. These squirrels these Indian giant squirrels. Don't fuck with that. They're much smarter. They put their caches of food in the trees up in this up in the trees. Keep up there. So the dogs can't get the Indian dogs. Also beef with the squirrels just like here in America untold allegedly stored in the treetops instead of storing it underground so they got all this by the way fruit flowers nuts tree bark some of them some subspecies. The giants grew apparently on on Nevis. They snack on insects and even bird eggs. That's fucked up. Can you imagine a rainbow a giant Rainbow Rainbow Squirrel eating a bird egg depressing but yeah. They're an upper canopy dwelling species. You've heard species like this like in the in the rainforest or whatever that don't come down down from the upper canopy because that's where they're safe. This is a Rainbow Squirrel. That does that in India. What Pussy also? I never leave my home home so not sure why I'm talking Shit. These giant squirrels make their nests on nooks of thinner branches or in tree holes up these trees. It's kind of like a size of an eagle's nest building twigs and leaves and Shit Sometimes an individual squirrel repair squirrels will have more than one nest in an area of a forest. which is on? I'm rich squirrel. Shit you really need a second nest Bro. Why not share the wealth with some of the less fortunate squirrels? Where's the Bernie? Sanders Zander Squirrel when you need him. That is my question instead of descending down to the bottom out of the trees when they sense danger they actually flatten themselves against tree branches to appear to be part of the tree. which is incredible? So you got like a fucking leopard these predators leopards other big cats snakes aches large birds of prey. You see one of these coming at you flatten yourself against the tree. This is exactly how I handle predators. I smooshed myself up against a wall. I blend and didn't like Buster Bluetooth. You can always tell them Milford man by the way this giant Squirrel as of January two thousand sixteen the IUCN Red List. You know the fucking the organization. That's in charge of making sure. How many animals are there of each species? But I've always wondered how this works is like a thousand people working at this place. I you seen Dan. And it's their responsibility to go around counting. You know giant squirrels in India. Or whatever like how the fuck do they know how. Many people on this planet have dedicated their lives to counting squirrels or other animals. It seems like a lot. That's a job. We're trying to keep track all these endangered species one of which is apparently or at at least threatened. What does it say? Oh never mind. The squirrels numbers are decreasing but they remain of quote least concern on the organization scale. They're no imminent imminent danger. We've got plenty of Rainbow. Squirrels running around India torturing the Indian people in their backyards Digging up acorns in harassing their pets just like here in America. We're all the same RPG.

"Says I want to close US plants but I want to convert those plans in place to clean energy plants so that you're not just leaving these people high and dry. I mean the people who work in the industry. I mean that's a smart. That's a smart approach. I'm not sure it's feasible everywhere. But he's not just saying I think Elizabeth Warren is way too facile. Sometimes she says we're going to ban fracking. WE'RE GONNA move to clean energy. She and if you work in fracking and guess what fracking there. There are a lot of fracking in Ohio. A swing state in Pennsylvania swing state. I mean what are those voters supposed to think. Think I mean you just want to make my job sleet and what are you GonNa do. Just send me a welfare check. So Bloomberg is saying and he's he has actually worked this issue for some time closed the coal plants but convert them into whatever comes after a carbon energy so that we keep those jobs in place and maybe those new jobs or even better jobs than mining in call which one would hope they are. This came during the most recent debate on healthcare if you kind of get rid of the private healthcare industry what happens to all those jobs questions about Roy Moines being in the town where we were all these people going to go get jobs in Bernie Sanders. Silvio is a five year plan to get those people into other. Yeah if I were if I were if I worked in the insurance industry in Iowa and Bernie said don't worry I'm going to eliminate your industry. Uh I got a five year plan to tradition you into something else I would immediately say. No thanks I just want to displease. Stay away I don't want your five year plan I want when I got right now. Well let me go back to just go back the Bloomberg Economic Plan. So I just did my best to sort of regurgitate what I understand his plan to be. I'm boring myself as I say it. I'm like this is so boring. There's no slogan like you know. Trump had a great slogan. Make America great again He wants to raise you know. Go to raise the minimum minimum wage to fifteen dollars which is a lot of the other. Democrats do where I just not fun? It's not Pity something more Lord. I don't know I so. I think that if he were not this super billionaire with all this money for sure he would need like this. Would just you know well. Well guess what there are ten other Democrats have kind of have the same plan and you don't even know their names because no one's interesting because it's just not crabby So because Bloomberg has all all his money and because he's running after trump He's going after trump instead of like playing small ball among the other Democrats He's getting attention. But I'm the you know the traditional rule would say he just has no sizzle and that he would not be likely to win. I mean if you disagree if Yeah Bloomberg Susil please jump in. I'm waiting Bloomberg in. Brazil are not commonly together Alex. You're just silent. We got an answer Mensa from Alex so a couple of times about the ads that he's going after trump. which brings me to this one theory theory? I made a couple of calls before Just talking to some people and one person and it goes back to the first question to ask you is he really rubbing. I know that he reminded the first. The first question was is Bloomberg really running Israel. There are some theories theories out there that he is just going after trump and he's willing to spend his own money because he can play that game. Well well the other Democrats are going to continue trying to do the positive message. And let's make it about what we're GonNa do and kind of forget about what's going on over here while we're having this impeachment trial but Bloomberg can go out. You can go out early. He can spend all this money. It's a lot easier than pushing it through somebody elses campaign but he's he's not really in it to win he's really in it to get the message out there. That trump is the wrong answer. I think he's Doing I think he's playing both ways as my best guess and To go back to a little bit of the history here and by the way we had we had a top Bloomberg advisor on on one of our shows recently. Not your show is but the guy's name is Tusk And he's a money manager. Who is working with the campaign and sort of going around and speaking on behalf? Ah Bloomberg and Alexis and Brian Sasi Andy. Serwer asked him kind of asking that question like how long is like is he going to go the distance or like what's his deal and he gave a kind of a surprisingly candid. Answer any pointed out that when Bloomberg kind of made the decision which is last you know last half of two thousand eighteen twenty nine thousand nine. Sorry I'm Bein. was looking very shaky. So Biden the front runner Looking shaky the and if Biden collapsed. Who would that leave? That would leave You know the young people to judge totally unproven Leave Amy Klobuchar who I think is very qualified but just not getting a lot of traction and I think I guess the thinking then was if biden collapses then it's just wide open for either Bernie Sanders Zander's or Elizabeth Warren and we're going to have a near socialist as the Democratic nominee. Bloomberg says can't let that happen because I personally trump so I need to get into this race and lo and behold look what has happened on. Biden has not collapsed He worries about his Ineptitude are overblown and Bloomberg's rationale was that if Joe Biden collapses I need to be there to save the Party and save the country and Joe Biden is not collapsing. So that suggests that if by let's let's say Biden is a nominee Bloomberg doesn't win. What does he do? I guess what we think. He does which he said he's going to do is see funds the Biden Slash Democratic effort to beat trump in November with a ton of money before we go to wrap it up who is going to have the better super super bowl commercial president trump or Mike Bloomberg so they have both bought Super Bowl ads. It doesn't it by the way you would pull little we talk so we're just we're just talking. I'm asserting that Mike Bloomberg has no sizzle but the fight between Bloomberg and trump does have sizzle and one thing One Element one signal of Bloomberg success. So far is trump is tweeting about him so he got under trump's skin and he has a nickname. He has a mini mini. My yeah that's what trump calls him. So there's many Mike and Sleepy Joe and I love the fact that he's getting under trump skit. I mean to me that's the entertainment value. There is good and trump is now making him. Part of the trump reality show in the White House and trump is mad that he's spending so much on the ads well. He tweeted about the the the health ads and he. That's that's bugging him and end he also bug him. Bloomberg is so much richer than his so I mean we know much richer so the so of the. I don't spend a lot of time. Watching is at least not yet and I actually like Joe. Biden's ads going after trump a little bit more work because he's real you know Joe Biden is kind of like Mr Genteel. You know in his persona but his his is a really sharp. Have you seen the world is laughing. Atta Atta rolled is laughing at us. he has another ad showing that trump seems obsessed with buying just got cuts trump. Going Biden Biden Joe Biden enjoy. And it's like why is this. Why is the president so obsessed with me? There must be something to me. I mean that's the under so I am Bloomberg's ads have been a little more earnest to know me. Yeah and I mean well you know the Super Bowl when you want to bring the razzle dazzle right for the for your ads. So I'm interested to see I'm sure Bloomberg's add will be better because I think trump's are so hokey With the you know the the Bald Eagle and trump trying to look militaristic and commanding to me. They're so hokey in the Maga- bs so I hope Bloomberg gets a little funky and has some fun with his ad which would be a winner. I agree if he goes funny. Honey I think it could be good otherwise you do the absurdity of the cost of Super Bowl I ten million I think is what Bloomberg reportedly spent for sixty seconds. I mean Gene Sanders only top. The top fundraiser in the last quarter raised. Thirty four million dollars so to buy a super bowl ad would be one third of his entire entire fundraising for the last quarter. So that tells you how much money Bloomberg has he can. Just toss off a super bowl on. This has been so fun I will let you know that I am going the forty niners to win and I think trump might have the better super bowl. I I just feel like the Patriotic Eagles stuff is going to play really well on super football Sunday but if Bloomberg goes funny maybe well maybe I'll invite me on your show the day off Sherlock about trump versus Bloomberg super bowl. can't wait. We'll see who's better I thank you for doing this. Forty niners definitely GONNA win. I cannot say anything about WHO's going to win over president but I'm going forty niners are winning team. The steelers hasn't even made the playoffs two years in a row. My terrible towel have been in a drawer Mike Tomlin so I'm with your forty niners. I'm just happy patriots loss and the Ravens lost so it's already been a good season for formation. Go niners. I'm with you so fine thank you..

"Says I want to close US plants but I want to convert those plans in place to clean energy plants so that you're not just leaving these people high and dry. I mean the people who work in the industry. I mean that's a smart. That's a smart approach. I'm not sure it's feasible everywhere. But he's not just saying I think Elizabeth Warren is way too facile. Sometimes she says we're going to ban fracking. WE'RE GONNA move to clean energy. She and if you work in fracking and guess what fracking there. There are a lot of fracking in Ohio. A swing state in Pennsylvania swing state. I mean what are those voters supposed to think. Think I mean you just want to make my job sleet and what are you GonNa do. Just send me a welfare check. So Bloomberg is saying and he's he has actually worked this issue for some time closed the coal plants but convert them into whatever comes after a carbon energy so that we keep those jobs in place and maybe those new jobs or even better jobs than mining in call which one would hope they are. This came during the most recent debate on healthcare. If you kind of get rid of the private healthcare industry what happens to all those jobs questions about Roy. Join being in the town where we were all these people going to go get jobs in Bernie Sanders. Silvio is a five year plan to get those people into other. Yeah if I were if I were if I worked in the insurance industry in Iowa and Bernie said don't worry I'm going to eliminate your industry. Uh I got a five year plan to tradition you into something else I would immediately say. No thanks I just want to displease. Stay away I don't want your five year plan I want when I got right now. Well let me go back to just go back the Bloomberg Economic Plan. So I just did my best to sort of regurgitate what I understand his plan to be. I'm boring myself as I say it. I'm like this is so boring. There's no slogan like you know. Trump had a great slogan. Make America great again He wants to raise you know. Go to raise the minimum minimum wage to fifteen dollars which is a lot of the other. Democrats do where I just not fun? It's not Pity something more Lord. I don't know I so. I think that if he were not this super billionaire with all this money for sure he would need like this. Would just you know well. Well guess what there are ten other Democrats have kind of have the same plan and you don't even know their names because no one's interesting because it's just not crabby So because Bloomberg has all all his money and because he's running after trump He's going after trump instead of like playing small ball among the other Democrats He's getting attention. But I'm the you know the traditional rule would say he just has no sizzle and that he would not be likely to win. I mean if you disagree if Yeah Bloomberg Susil please jump in. I'm waiting Bloomberg in. Brazil are not commonly together Alex. You're just silent. We got an answer Mensa from Alex so a couple of times about the ads that he's going after trump. which brings me to this one theory theory? I made a couple of calls before Just talking to some people and one person and it goes back to the first question to ask you is he really rubbing. I have said that he reminded the first. The first question was is Bloomberg. Really running Israel. There are some theories theories out there that he is just going after trump and he's willing to spend his own money because he can play that game. Well well the other Democrats are going to continue trying to do the positive message. And let's make it about what we're GonNa do and kind of forget about what's going on over here while we're having this impeachment trial but Bloomberg can go out. You can go out early. He can spend all this money. It's a lot easier than pushing it through somebody elses campaign but he's he's not really in it to win he's really in it to get the message out there. That trump is the wrong answer. I think he's Doing I think he's playing both ways as my best guess and To go back to a little bit of the history here and by the way we had we had a top Bloomberg advisor on on one of our shows recently. Not your show is but the guy's name is Tusk And he's a money manager. Who is working with the campaign and sort of going around and speaking on behalf? Ah Bloomberg and Alexis and Brian Sasi Andy. Serwer asked him kind of asking that question like how long is like is he going to go the distance or like what's his deal and he gave a kind of a surprisingly candid. Answer any pointed out that when Bloomberg kind of made the decision which is last you know last half of two thousand eighteen twenty nine thousand nine. Sorry I'm Bein. was looking very shaky. So Biden the front runner Looking shaky the and if Biden collapsed. Who would that leave? That would leave You know the young people to judge totally unproven Leave Amy Klobuchar who I think is very qualified but just not getting a lot of traction and I think I guess the thinking then was if Biden collapses then it's just wide open for either Bernie Sanders Zander's or Elizabeth Warren and we're going to have a near socialist as the Democratic nominee. Bloomberg says can't let that happen because I personally trump so I need to get into this race and lo and behold look what has happened on. Biden has not collapsed He worries about his Ineptitude are overblown and Bloomberg's rationale was that if Joe Biden collapses I need to be there to save the Party and save the country and Joe Biden is not collapsing. So that suggests that if by let's let's say Biden is a nominee Bloomberg doesn't win. What does he do? I guess what we think. He does which he said he's going to do is see funds the Biden Slash Democratic effort to beat trump in November with a ton of money before we go to wrap it up who is going to have the better super super bowl commercial president trump or Mike Bloomberg so they have both bought Super Bowl ads.

"Politics that affect your pocketbook. I'm Rick Newman and I'm Alexis Christoffersen staffers. And today we are talking about the Democrats three best ideas as we head into the twenty twenty election and Rick it's only fair to do this because is just a few months ago we did a podcast talking about the Democrats three worst ideas so we thought we have to do the three best. In just in case you didn't catch that other one or you need a primer. We want to recap the worst ideas that we went through. Were Medicare for all a fracking ban. which was part of the green deal and amnesty at the border? Now two Out of the three best ideas for the Democrats are closely related to two of the worst ideas. Let's break it down and start with Medicare for all bad idea. We said. Initially you say Medicare for more which it seems like. They've adopted now. The Democrats is a better idea right so To break down who stands for. What just a little bit so Bernie? Sanders ZANDER's originated the Medicare medicare for all idea and he wrote the damn bill reminds us to do that This would this. Is the plan plan. That would eliminate private insurance. And everybody would enroll in a government plan similar to Medicare. So that's way too disruptive way too expensive So Elizabeth Elizabeth Warren signed up to that and some other Democrats but The moderate Democrats Joe Biden Pete Buddha. Judging Amy Klobuchar To just list three. Who are we're still in the top tier They don't support Medicare for all day support A Medicare for some or medicare for more idea which they also recall a public option. People here public option are probably think for what scared me so we're talking about healthcare. I also think subpar healthcare when I think public option wreck. Yeah it sounds like public housing right So We something needs to be done on healthcare. I mean I'm I Just Really WanNa Bang my head on the table. Sometimes with the problems we have in healthcare that nobody is. I mean you're not alone so let's just go over the what the problems are. I mean most people well who ever have to see a doctor know what the problems are. First of all if you have health insurance It's too it's too costly too expensive and they have been going up the out out-of-pocket costs what you're paying for premiums for deductibles For copays for out of network care and stuff like that It's going up way faster than incomes it. It has been for a long time. And the affordable care act is misnamed it should be called the affordable care act. It should be called the more people covered act because it really has not been unavoidable care. ACT IT really has not I. It didn't it didn't for most people. It didn't make healthcare more expensive. It just didn't address cost much it didn't a few ways but it's not Helping most people So we need to find ways to get costs down and then We do we talk about people while Oh politicians talk about universal healthcare. which doesn't mean you have everybody in government program? It just means that everybody has coverage. Somehow we're not that far away from universal missile coverage so people get a lot of government programs there's Medicare for Seniors Medicaid Some other programs at the. Va and things like that. And then we have private private insurance and that covers about ninety percent of all Americans so it to get the other ten percent covered. You don't have to tear down the system and build something something new to get ten to get. Just get those other ten percent curry and you probably would never get to one hundred percent no matter what. Even if we had compulsory insurance durance Provided by the government for you enrolled our people and the trump administration tried to do in rolling back the affordable care act. I have no. I know what they're trying Ranga do. What the Republicans are just totally bankrupt on healthcare? They got nothing on healthcare and a remarkably. The trump administration duration is still a party to a lawsuit that is trying to completely kill the affordable care. Act Everything about it So say there are things in there although that that should and could be saved that it shouldn't be abolished the affordable care. Well I think the whole program should be saved and at this point so including the mandate that everyone I wanna be insured. That's gone I mean that's basically gone. That was part of the original architecture of the of the bill. Do you think that should remain or call. It's gone it's gone. I and the reason it's gone. I mean there are two parts to it. The first part was The individual mandate requiring that. You have insurance so that is technically still part of the law but Congress Congress as part of the two thousand seventeen tax law eliminated the penalty for not having coverage so since eliminated as the law stands and this is part of what is being challenged in court as the law stands. Everybody is required to have insurance. But there's no penalty if you don't so there is there. There is no requirement So this court case is complicated But what the trump administration and the Republican states. They're trying to kill what they're basically trying to say that Because Congress made that one change where they eliminated the penalty in two thousand seventeen that invalidates the entire law. All of the affordable care act should be should be declared unconstitutional because Congress changed one small part of it so if that if that actually happened if courts actually decided data about eighteen million people are getting insurance today through the affordable care act who would not otherwise have insurance so you would eliminate insurance for those eighteen million people and then parts of law that most people most Americans like would go away. The biggest one of those is the law is the new law that says insurance companies cannot charge people with preexisting conditions. More them service sixty million Americans have pre existing conditions so all those people in theory or the ones. At least he's getting an who are not in Medicare or Medicaid would go. We'd go back to like the mediaeval Days when Insurance Company can say Oh you had breast cancer cancer five years ago. We're not going to give insurance back to the opposite of what our healthcare system should be right so these these are giant problems they affect i. I don't literally affect every American but they're so widespread that everybody knows the problem and we all practically know somebody who has had had to deal deal with these problems that you have coverage but It doesn't kick in until you've paid a five thousand dollar deductible who has not everybody has five thousand dollars sitting around for you know when you're in a car accident or whatever happens Attest goes wrong. You know so you you. You know once you're in the system I mean you get to five thousand dollars in a heartbeat APPS. I mean you know. It's like one one test. Oh my God wants the one night in the hospital is five thousand right there surprise billing and stuff like this so anyway away. This pisses me off. I mean the thing that pisses me off the most is i. It's not like nobody can figure out how to solve these problems. Take the problems are not so difficult that we that smart people can't figure out what to do about them. There are all kinds of bills and congress to address these problems. Think tanks Healthcare care experts doctors administrators. They're all kinds of solutions. Congress just won't do anything on this on on this one I lay this at the feet of the Republicans They have just I They're the they're like the dog that caught the car When they finally took back control of both houses of Congress and had a republican president? All they wanted to do was was killed. The Affordable Care Act They were railing against the affordable care. Act because they could basically just use it to tarnish Obama every every little problem in the healthcare system system suddenly became the fault of Obamacare and that was just pure politics does it with a stone of his of his presidency right. It's probably it's arguably I mean it has. It's the one log on it. I mean he did other things like stimulus. Bill that passed in two thousand nine. But yeah I mean Obama himself would probably say. Hey this is the biggest. Probably the biggest legacy of my presidency. And that's just not at Republicans and they're they are still they're not saying Oh let what are we going to well. Well here's our plan for the twenty thirty million Americans who still don't have health insurance They're still saying. Oh let's just figure out how we can plan before I mean to be fair to a trump. I mean he is trying to few relatively small things Pharma right and price scout dry. He so he's got a the inter- International Regional Price Pricing Index. He's trying to pass. which in theory would lower? Maybe lower prescription drug costs a little bit He's looking for trump more transparency in the industry. I I think we can all appreciate that I guess but The thing with the drug companies having to Advertise their their lips wrestling the TV that got struck down courts. I mean and I mean he also is GonNa wants to let states import drugs from Canada. but I don't think that's going to do much because because by the way Canada doesn't want US take their drugs. I mean Canada doesn't have like a bunch of drugs. Sitting around the Canadians are not using. And by the way Canada's data's drug costs are lower because they impose price controls so right Charles little trash so I mean this is not adults Allen. Nonsensical is so the idea with importing getting drugs from other countries. Other countries have lower priced drugs because they have price controls so trump is saying and the people who favor this are saying instead of imposing our own price controls in our own market right. Let's go abroad and by prescription drugs from other countries that impose price controls. But do you think the other countries are going to be fine with that I mean the. US Market for drugs is multiples of the size of the Canadian market. And and if this If if there was one person in Canada who couldn't get the drug when they needed it because it had instead gone to America I mean I think what would you do. What would any country do they? Thus right so so coming back to our central point here Medicare for more or for some which it seems like even Warren has backtracked her hard stance on Medicare here for all wanting medicare for all. You're saying that that was a good move by the Democrats and probably one. That helped them survive. Some of these candidates survive this far far. Yeah so let's talk about the public option plan so Joe Biden from the start and you hear him in the debate says Medicare for all. It's way too expensive. And why do we need to break break eliminate the private insurance system. That's already in place I mean it People don't like Insurance Comey's that much but this system does work for a lot of people and it's pretty good for a lot of people who are in it So what Biden would do. And it's the same with people to judge I I. There are no good people to judge dolls just so just so our audience it so there is one Buddha judge doll on the Internet and it. Just it's terrible. It's a stuffed doll and it got this big round head. These did not no not not yet. But maybe they will amy Klobuchar doll But there is a common Harris Doll and she's not here because she dropped. So let's talk about the Biden. Leiden plan I mean we don't need to go into all the details of it but Biden Buddha judge and club which are in general would set up a new Program program which could be administered by Medicare And why not. I mean. You've already got the overhead there for Medicare so it would run like Medicare And and in most cases you could buy your way.

"Of course. We'll take your calls calls and thoughts about what you Bernie. Sanders is rolling out his plan to bribe people into voting for him which is of course what politicians do is not unique to Bernie Sanders. ZANDER's this is just his version of how he wants to give away money in the billions of dollars one hundred fifty billion in grants for local and state governments to build old out public broadband networks now Ritchie. You brought up something during the break that I thought was kind of an interesting claim. So I said that this this could be a good thing and then I had to clarify. Because you said you wouldn't support it anyway so I said You know when you think about this you got to think of it like Hustler Right. You're GONNA pose it. They're going to do do it anyway. And then how do you find the angle that benefits you right. So let's say that they do roll out this public You know Broadband for all or fiber optics for all right then Going back to what. Melanie was talking about earlier with censorship. They couldn't censor the Internet across those that fiber all because definitely would be. It would be government censorship so my comment about using that was not a legal analysis. That was a moral analysis if the government is going to have the first amendment and not even really like if if the government claims to have this First Amendment and narrower forcing monopoly plea on you. It's not really their property and therefore they can't stop you from doing things on it because it doesn't actually belong to them doesn't mean they're going to see it that way if you bring it to court right well but in this case it's there it's there fiber right. It's definitely government censorship so if we're opposing censorship right and they try to censor across this fiber then we probably have a better case than going after facebook and youtube an Amazon on a corporate level saying like. Oh we want our free speech on your on your private platform this is. We want free speech a across the Internet. Because it's now run government wires well so then when you're saying that I own my websites that's based out of Sweden because you use government fiberoptics to to access it. I don't know how I'm saying that. So if you're saying you have free speech throughout the entire Internet which is not entirely located in United States. The the Internet's the website that I own are technically rented but whatever in Sweden that is based in Sweden but run by Me who was in America. Sure now I can't tell you can't make certain comments on my website. That's all he was saying. No I'm I'm saying that. If the government has the fiber they couldn't censor your website or prevent it from being acceptable in the on the website level. Not from the just the access level on On the level of certain governments out there in the world who have said China UK. I believe Australia as well. They certainly North Korea But they have said you will not be able to access these sites and then they create a block that create filter. That just prohibits people from going to those sites real censorship Correct now what you're saying is if the government runs the the Internet lines that therefore because of the free speech provisions that we have in the US for the challenge against if the government came in and said no you will not access freetalklive dot com. Yeah I think you would actually win but right that is a area okay. Yeah but Bernie. Sanders wants to break up the existing in what he calls Internet service provider cable monopolies and stopped service providers from from offering content and end what he calls anti competitive mergers he and his rivals for the two thousand twenty Democratic presidential nomination pushed to boost high speed Internet access for rural and low income Americans. This that parts also dumb right. 'cause why break them up if you're already introducing competition government runs subsidized competition. I regardless but then you have you know you'll have the cable you have the DSL from the phone company and you're introducing the government fiber. Why are you gonNA? Why would you break up the other two when you're already political okay? I mean he wants to be seen as this anti-corporate crusader right. Sure all all the While of course he supports the worst corporations which the government corporations but nevermind that He wants people to see him as. Oh Yeah I hate COM CA. You know people. Hey Tom yes right. So so they see this as a real like the bone that's being thrown to them by this the last time the government broke up a utility like that was when when we got all the bell south companies who ended up with pretty strong monopolies because then now only not only they had a monopoly in their area then they kind of the agreed silently to not compete with each other so and then they all came back together and merged profession the phone systems eh Justin Cluster F and it is because of government manipulation the whole the whole way through quote access to the Internet and by the way. I'm not I'm going to try to do his accent. Johnson's really good at it. Though on Tuesday nights access to the Internet is a necessity in today's economy and it should be available for all we are going to take on the Greb Internet Telecom and cable monopolies and put an end to their absurd price gouging. He said when you say it is what what is anybody can call up and be like. Here's some money give me Internet. Yeah but not poor. People they were people were rural areas could have what if they would work better. The cigarettes not like the Internet cost seven million dollars a month bucks a month. You could stop smoking five packs of cigarettes every month. And then you'd you'd be able to afford people smoke cigarettes true but there's a lot of people who have vices that keep them poor. I don't think that's his general concern though he's talking doc. He's talking about rural areas where people in rural areas but the rural areas where no one runs those lines. The rural areas don't have the access and in the areas that do have access he's saying poor people can't yeah which I agree with you. I mean forty bucks a month fifty bucks. A month there's tier. There are some tear packages that are below that I think for like you just have a cellphone. You get Internet that way. For what poor person using a cell phone I wanna be limited as to how many gigs you can use but.

"What does the Fed is going to do about it print money? That's all they can do. They can print money. How does that do anything? Destroy the value of people savings brings. How is that going to address? Income inequality the Fed has absolutely no tools. The only thing the Fed could do to help with income inequality is to reverse everything has been doing right. Lead interest rates go up. Let the bubble pop right. Let stock prices come down. Let real estate prices come down. Let's have a real recession so we can have a real recovery agree that actually benefits the middle class and the poor not this phony bubble that benefits speculators who were getting rich off of the feds as a cash cow. But that's not going to happen right and I have no idea what cash carry thinks. He's going to do without fiscal policy. In fact the only thing that you could do you if he thinks is hey we can run bigger deficits we can print more money to enable the government to run even bigger deficits. So they can give money to the poor to supposedly make them less poor but of course if we do that then we're going to destroy the value the money and the poor will be even poor because even though they'll have more money they'll have a lower standard of living in fact the kid that did this video pointed out how many times the minimum wage was raised in Venezuela. But it didn't matter how much you got. And he was talking talked about how doctors and nurses earning the same as cashiers. I mean nobody could earn any money so all the doctors left and so there was no more healthcare for anybody right. He promised free free healthcare for everybody. Instead there's no healthcare for anybody that is the history of socialism. It is failed every time has been tried and not only just failed eld but it's failed. Miserably is failed spectacularly right the only thing that has succeeded as capitalism freedom. And that's why we have is high standard living that these young kids that were protesting at the Yale. Harvard game right there so willing to cast it aside without even realizing even appreciating how good they have it's because of capitalism changing gears just a little bit to talk about politics now Mayor Bloomberg Michael Bloomberg has officially now how entered the race. He's a launching a major ad campaign. And you don't Bloomberg by far hands down no question about. It is the best candidate for the Democrats right so if you want to have a Democratic president anybody that is in the current field were to become President Bloomberg is by far the most competent right. So if it's going to be a democrat. You should want a Bloomberg to win. I think he's probably has the best chance of beating trump now. I think I think you know I think other candidates can also be trump. But I think it's going to be very very very difficult for trump to beat Bloomberg now trump pretends. He's wants to run against him but of course that's you know that's what you would expect it to do. If you don't run against and somebody then you say Oh yeah Oh yeah bring them on. He's he's my he's a guy most want to run against right. You say that about the candidate you don't want to run against because you don't want to admit that you don't want to run against somebody gets they'll use that as a rallying cry you see trump's afraid of me so make me the nominee so trump wants to downplay the threat from Bloomberg but there is a real threat there. I would've comes. Bloomberg Bloomberg is also said. He's not gonNA take any contributions at all zero. He's not even going to allow people to donate to his campaign that wasn't true through for trump. I mean trump accepted donations and spend money But Bloomberg said he's GonNa take any donations now Bloomberg of course is worth fifty billion alien right so maybe ten times. What trump is worth so bloomberg can spend trump's entire net worth on this election and not even miss the money and of course Bloomberg is is liquid trump has got a lot of wealth and assets? Trump has a lot of dead Bloomberg is cash. He's got money to burn and he's willing to do it to become president but I think it's very interesting you Bernie Sanders right. He's been one of the most critical of Bloomberg's entrance into the race by saying. How dare this billionaire right? He thinks he can by the White House. The White House is not for sale. Bullshit of courses for sale right. He just wants to buy it with other people's Money Elliot's Bloomberg Berg wants to buy it with his own money but you get sanders coming out and saying what qualifications does is billionaire. Have to be president right. Hello oh I mean what qualifications does Bernie Sanders have to be president none. I mean what he's been a senator big deal be the senators BS. What do you do you vote on stuff? You don't do shit as a senator. I mean what important legislation has he actually got passed. Not that I think passing legislation is good. I think repealing legislation is good but the way most politicians you know look at tracker. Hey these are all the bills that I've I've brought through and made laws. What is Bernie Sanders Zander stunned? He hasn't done anything. I'm not sure if this guy's ever even had a job let alone. Had An employee certainly hasn't done that he certainly never run a business. He's got zero qualifications to be president. What qualifications does Michael Bloomberg half to be president? Well first of all. He's a self made billionaire. I mean you gotta give him some credit. I mean you don't just accidentally make fifty billion dollars and he didn't make it. I mean financial engineering. Yeah I mean he was involved in Wall Street so he certainly benefited from the bubble in Wall Street because more people are trading and they need Bloomberg terminals so in a way you know he so you know. He benefited from that cheap money policy because Wall Street is are as big as customers but still the guy made a tremendous amount of money ran. A huge organization created mil well directly tens of thousands of jobs. Maybe more people Bloomberg employs across his entire business. Line I mean he's in media and financial services and all the things that he's done but certainly be being a self made billionaire. Have you spent your entire life working in the private sector as an entrepreneur as a businessman. That is a pretty good qualification. I think to be present in the United States. I mean Look Donald Trump had right but not only is Michael Bloomberg a more successful self made entrepreneur. Then trump and bloom didn't get any money from his parents his parents were middle class. Schoolteacher and I forget what the other occupation was. Maybe a lawyer I forget or not even a lawyer like something that makes less money than that but he was the mayor of New York City for the three terms mayor he ran the largest city in the country right. I mean I think being the mayor of New York I mean you have more responsibility ability than being the governor of most states. Right you got. You got a lot of people living in New York City. That's a big job. As far as you know executive experience in government organizing and running government. So he has a lot more experience than trump had trump ramp because trump had never been elected to anything. But certainly I think it. Being Mayor of New York City for three terms is a more experienced that is relevant to being present to the United States than spending a lifetime as a senator where you do nothing you just show up and vote and you go around the country you give speeches and you write books and you. Yeah that's where Sanders. That's how he became a millionaire. He used his fame that he got running for office and he wrote a book. I mean don't even write it. You just you just get a deal you get ghost rider. I'm sure he didn't write the book. Just put his name on it. Somebody else wrote it. And he cashed in on his fame right from He. He cashed in on on the famous achieved by bashing millionaires to become a millionaire right. That's Bernie Sanders Story. So for him to say what qualifications does Bloomberg have. He's better qualified qualified than any of the other candidates by far and he certainly better qualified and more experienced than Bernie Sanders. Now am I my door saying him do I think Oh. We should go out and vote for Michael Bloomberg. Look I mean if it was Bloomberg against trump look. I don't know you know that actually could be a tough call now. I'm going to have to make it because I can't vote because I live in Puerto Rico but yeah I mean Bloomberg wants higher taxes. But he's not going to be crazy higher taxes that he wants but look you know we're going through an economic crisis regardless of WHO's elected the thing about having Bloomberg as opposed to one of these other Democratic Democratic Idiots at the helm of this ship when we hit the iceberg and go down is that he leaves. He's got a shot at maybe doing doing the right thing. These other guys have no shot at doing the right thing. I mean he's probably would be the best Democratic president. I mean it'd be better. I think that Clinton was certainly better than Obama was you you know. I mean he's not Ronald Reagan. Would he be better than trump. Trump trump has done a lot of things that have upset mean. He's done some things that I liked. It would probably be a tough call but you know but my guess would be that I. I'd rather have trump. I mean it's all going to collapse. I think trump some of the people that trump listens to that trump respects. No me respect me. Listen to me so I might have an easier path and it's not either me but some people with my Austrian perspective and my economic outlook or philosophy We might have a better chance of getting trump to try to enact some of that than a Bloomberg because I think Bloomberg is going to be more associated with the people on the left who what I think should happen and my Austrian economics is is not even on their radar right. It's nothing that they would even consider so probably. I'm only trump over over Bloomberg but it's not as cut and dry like trump over sanders or trump over warrant. I mean these guys would be complete disasters and and you know and they're going to try all kinds of things. The only thing that would save us would be the Supreme Court and maybe Congress if they just didn't WanNa give into this nonsense but the problem is this. This coming crisis is going to be so bad. It's going to be so much worse than two thousand and and you know it's all going to be blamed on. Capitalism is all going to be the left saying we told soldier so we cut taxes for the rich. We deregulated it you know. The economy was great. Trump inherited a great economy for Obama. And like everything he inherits. He squandered it with tax cuts for the rich deregulation. And things are going to be very tough and people are going to be demanding radical solutions I wish to radical solutions could be free market capitalism. Because we haven't had that in a long time but everybody's convinced that's always had and even the people who supposedly defend van. Capitalism think that it needs a makeover that it needs to be redone for the modern era. We don't need to redo capitalism just need capitalism. Well we have to do is get all the socialism outta Kaplan giving it a bad name we gotta get government out of all this stuff so that market forces can get back in and you know I'm going to finish up the podcast talk a little bit about voting casino. We're talking about these politicians voting. Because I kinda got into trouble. We're not really into trouble. But I got a lot of people giving me. FLACK A lot. The millennials again the same guys that criticize me for not getting a bitcoin. Our criticizing me over a couple of tweets. I put out on voting so I read this article about a town..

"M. college is for a lot of people a total waste of time and money extensively it could even considered a scam gam because some of the people that promoting it are very dishonest in what they are saying claiming that people who went to college make more money well oh yeah the dead they're factoring everybody in what they really should be saying is is that by major what do people make and you know i wanna know i wanna know i want not people who went to college versus people who didn't go to college i want people who went to trade school and the specific pacific trade degrees that they got and their income based on the different different majors that people got so you know in one case case i want somebody who got a degree in the flute i want somebody who had a got a degree in women's studies i wanted to somebody who got a degree in engineering nearing and somebody who got an MD i want that information then next to it i want information on somebody who went to small engine repair somebody who went to do you know plumbing somebody who's learned what is it welders weld welders who is coming next for me you know i mean these i wonder underwater welders to you know i want to i want these things laid out next to each other rather than this sort of false paradigms where it's like well did you go to college or didn't didn't you go to college and this is the difference difference as far as the money goes that is a big fat lie but certainly some people who go to college make significantly more money than they would have had they not gone but many many don't know of course when it comes to buying something you know caveat emptor is always recommended buyer beware this a system wide scam where we st- what we've done is we've in debt we created a generation of debt slaves we've made the millennials into serfs to the US government and i don't know how you undo it other than just canceling this out so you're republicans you're gonna get a lot of democratic candidates out there who are strumming for votes by promising to get rid of people's debt and that's what they're doing and you know you've got to look at what's the practicality of this besides just looking at the morality ah yes it's true these young people when they were young people i made lots of mistakes when i was young believe me now these young people made a mistake they signed up they've got tricked by people people people who are in their system you sit you allow these kids to go to government schools you allow the system to be built and then you're like well you better no you can't lie to somebody gets stuck shove somebody in the closet keep them in the dark feed him BS their whole life and when they grow mushrooms tell you shouldn't believe that stuff so richie was there you know more than you wanted to share news a pretty detailed story here they get into some personal stories with students and you know oh how they apparently some of them have actually already gotten their debt discharged through some sort of a program to do that we used to i mean we can go on i mean i'm like a two paragraph pretty lengthy article more recently researchers have found that and because i want to get to the point where it's a boost for the economy right not just individuals that'd be the interesting part researchers are found that canceling some or all of the nation's outstanding student loan that has the potential to boost gross domestic product narrow the widening racial wealth wealth gap and liberate millions of americans from a financial albatross that previous previous generations never had to contend with senator elizabeth warren and bernie sanders both vying for the democratic nomination for president are proposing to wipe away some or all of the country's burdensome debt as a key part of their campaign could they do that he and i mean as the executive they're in charge of implementation of government programs government one of these government programs is this backing of college aged debt could the president unilaterally by themselves go ahead and forgive this debt without begging a congress i don't know but okay so the next line right here and then they plan to pay for it and accompanying proposals to make public public college tuition free by raising taxes on the wealthy that they keep they keep talking about that but you can't can't do that okay that's you're not going to tell us a campaign promise right so they may even know they can't do it but they're saying anyway because they're marketing to people who eight rich people they can raise taxes on rich people but you can only raise them so high and this is why leave the little crybabies out there like hey reg people 'cause i badge right like those people you know i don't think i'll ever be rich well somehow i can live my life and not care that there are people that are richer than me it doesn't it doesn't keep me up at night right they cry about it okay what they want that lifestyle sure they want that lifestyle what they'd understand that they believe in bullcrap economics and al explain the bull-crap economics here real quick if you have two people one is a lawyer one is a paralegal they worked for a law firm one makes ten twenty dollars dollars an hour one makes a hundred dollars an hour obviously lawyer gets a hundred dollars an hour the both of them do great for a year and they get their pay increased doubled all right the paralegal illegal goes to forty dollars an hour the lawyer goes to two hundred dollars an hour everybody's happy because everybody got their pay increase but the pay pay disparity between the two of them just doubled when you believe this nonsense about the wealth gap well the wealth gap just means that some people got richer and so you know it doesn't say anything about how how much richer the people in the bottom got americans are in the one percent if you make thirty thousand dollars in america if you make thirty thousand dollars a year and believe me you make thirty thousand most most people are making this kind of money thirty thousand dollars a year you are the world's world's one percent so you better watch alley yes you better watch out about all these laws and the things the moral arguments about being the one percent 'cause you're for it worldwide but again you if you're talking about the people where talk about third world countries and they're like most people here live off a dollar a day well but it's at this point two dollars a day the the number that they use okay well that right two dollars a day then but that you know so when when americans hear that they think about like your average bridge day as an american and whether or not you could survive off two dollars a day and seems pretty like unreasonable right like to burgers that the economy's different but the economy's enemies different sure so two dollars a day elsewhere might get you a little bit more it's not going to get you the lavish lifestyle that you get here but i don't think a lot of people take that into consideration ration- when they try out that in that number of two dollars a day or whatever it is so what they're proposing though here is to not not just not wipe out the debt not cancel the debt they're talking about paying these banks back by taking money from rich people so it wasn't at all what we were discussing cussing earlier which would actually be pretty good by comparison no they don't wanna do that yeah this is really bad critics question whether the proposal would fix the underlying problem in the way americans pay for college and also whether student debt cancellation would entail giveaway to well off families i'd also say this is there there was a time in this country and frankly i don't even i think in my lifetime that i really didn't learn anything in school that was of particular value after sixth grade eight so i was going to say that there's a time in sixth grade education was fine but i'm you know my dad never graduated high school and did fine but regardless regardless i mean maybe there's something the only thing that i believe that i learned after sixth grade that's actually been of use in my life was typing class thank you mrs bird but other than that it's just been crap i didn't really need to know it was basically middle class welfare babysitting day prison where i was sent off in order to keep from getting in the marketplace in working against you know low skilled workers and bringing my skills bear and getting better in the marketplace however i understand there are certainly people that need to have have higher education then talk show host needs to have but nonetheless i don't think that i don't think we're all up next it's all necessary for this and when you make it necessary for everybody to graduate high school because when i was in you could drop out sixteen if you want it now yeah basically can't can't and basically not it's very difficult and you have to be until eighteen you might as well just stay in for the other half a year at that point so different by state but a high school diploma is worthless it is basically pretty much worthless once they make it mandatory to have a bachelor's basically everybody nobody gets one for free they will be worthless because people people that really aren't paying for it have no skin in the game are going to school and getting underwater basket weaving degrees and and a bachelor's in and of itself is of no value so i've been through the system and i was talking with my buddy and my co-host for our podcast on our show yesterday about ah the anarchists experience experienced dot com podcast whole thought could tell a story making a mixture we don't forget coming up here in our number three we got more to the story here because they're going to somebody's gonna make an argument over marketwatch about why are they going to what i want to know is are they going to argue for these plans and claimed that bernie sanders zander's plan is actually going to benefit the economy or is it going to be more like what we were talking about where you just wipe out the debts just scratch it out in the books and move on it's free talk live i can definitely say that i have found the best crypto currency wallet certainly the best named one i'm mark edge and i love

"I think that's the same but but you know what well this. The supreme court would but what's interesting. I'm out of my depth here but the electoral college leaves the the process of electing in purchasing were in a hurry and in part they didn't want to just take on one more fight because they're constantly fighting over and over and over again about you know at a little dollop of legislative control and participation in here at a little dollop of the of the population but not so much that we run into a mob because they were fearful of the mob is they were monarchy <hes> but the states were given the ability to come up with whatever rules they wanted for picking electors so under that ruling <hes> why wouldn't a pact or agreement that the states engaged in to give all electors to the winner of the popular vote <hes> that it would seem to me to be within the jurisdiction of the state's authority under the constitution to name electors however they saw fit that is exactly the rationale for why the national popular provoke interstate compact should be constitutional as what you were just saying that it's it should be viewed through the lens of federalism <hes> as opposed to the provision about about the electoral college itself one week so many media controversies have the new york times columnist brad stevens who embarrassed himself by trying to shame someone someone who tweeted an insult about him someone who treated almost into the void and insult about him stevens excessive response got him in trouble. You have have president trump's allies launching a really significant effort to find embarrassing social media by journalists in the mainstream media and use those post to to humiliate and deride those journalists and then and then <hes> undermine journalism and undermined media coverage of the president generally bernie sanders zander's lashing out at the corporate media. You have reporters uncovering different canny ways jeffrey epstein intimidated the press including possibly any a dead cat or severed cat head <hes> as a threat to <hes> an editor <hes> so i wanna start emily with the effort that has been undertaken by some conservatives to track and then tactically deploy <hes> evidence of social media <hes> posts made by journalists earlier in their careers in order to embarrass people the mainstream media so you find something that in new york times james writer in new york times editor said somewhere in there deepen their social media posts somewhere instagram beckwith. They're in college and then use that to attack ax something that comes out in the mainstream media. Is this information gathering this this <hes> <hes> otto reporting is op research should be done on the media is that is that fine just reporting is that just in fact a form of journalism that president trump's allies are invasion. I'm in no. I think it's bad to be making journalists. Old social media posts like the center of how we think about their work. I also think though so that journalists are kind of offering themselves up for this some of us in the way that we use social media and there's a pretty easy fix for this. I mean wesley morris. Who's what an astute reporter at the washington post like immediately tweeted in the wake of the story set up your tweet delete systems like you know get rid of the old stuff stuff so that it's not out there to be immediately like made much of and to be used to diminish your work are lots of people of we've talked about many times on the show have things things they've said or done online from when they were a teenager or in their like he's to us that don't need to be following them around forever..

"Here we got of a higher the conversation a really today how you get to at his arguably complex such is life i know but it is really complex. Is it true that it's not politically feasible. Seizable to rally along the line of pursuing socialized socialized medicine sort of had on at this point in time the ethical cases clear that what the goal needs to be and i think that's that's been really well. Elaborated an articulated by elizabeth warren bernie sanders zander's even the blasio mayor of new york city. I think they all really good job clearly the private healthcare industry has <hes> you can't even to put it euphemistically fucked everything everything up. I mean there's not like a nice way of putting it <hes> when people can't even gather insulin at an affordable price may die because of the you know that we're talking about evil there is evil. There is literal evil that has corroded the private healthcare industry. It is the fact and to the moral case is there. The question is how complex are was a weeds of the american conscience american's psyche with respect to how willing to move who've on healthcare policy and also i think the calculus really depends on what you're honing in on onto doesn't it because from one point of view the polls do indicate that americans remain more than majority more than plurality people who have good health care insurance often <hes> thanks to their employers want to keep it and regardless of the ethics of it as another conversation regardless of the ethics of it. How willing are they to go out of their way to vote for a candidate who would blatantly endeavor to take away from them on the other hand. You do have people making the point like elizabeth. Warren does a lot of these people who do have these really good health. Care plans actually don't think they're so good at the end of the day okay and you still do have the new the healthcare insurance company stakeholders olders sucking every cent of money they can out of people <hes> without really having any care for their their very existences and you have to really reconcile the two here and say have you have you take this one on in my own experience in politics having run for three offices and just both within the context of having a lot of conversations nations with people within the systems of various levels of legislation legislating and the people knocking knocking on doors and stuff and as well as other people running and where they stand on things and really seeing all the different stakeholders in the political process. One of my flaws has inherently been that i've always been. I don't know if the word is a romantic or an idealist but always let's. Let's just say that a moderate status quo approach has rarely been the one that wanted to take even when i was running against the mayor of east windsor and her crew in two thousand fifteen even those ideas that i had that we're not radical really ideologically things like you know the the residents should be able to vote for who's mayor not vote just from member town council and have the town council itself decided you should be mayor democratically elected mayor not a shocking thing that when i top policies <hes> that was like why are you shaking the boat here have filmed meetings made available to the public the big deals and he's windsor to make those kind of things happen. I mean even to have the east windsor town. Council make public in public. The minutes of the town council meeting is not an easy thing to do since they blatantly break the law year after year to this day and got away okay with it because part of it being the people community. Just don't give a damn. One reason. I m hella glad gotten the hell out of east windsor knock on wood. I am so grateful my point being though achieving reality achieving achieving policy outcomes is not easy so it is one thing to have this ethical conviction that you're in termined to pursue verse says a what can you do in the short term to make it happen now the case as of healthcare policy though do you have to say i think that the time for more moderate pragmatic approach or to use the language his vox article you know the time when people were concerned with political feasibility i think with obamacare frankly <hes> over a decade go now and that the idea i think was let's start there and see what happened but i think that obamacare has less people wanting in terms of good healthcare policy could health insurance and and i'm going to say also that honestly the election of trump to office and his success even with a tax reform policy and his take on russia. <hes> i think has demonstrated that more is possible politically than we probably think. If you have the will to do it so oh while i understand that the polls indicate something and i understand that suffice medicine is in some contexts a radical and perhaps difficult thing to achieve. I think ten years ago the idea of the republican party being hijacked by nazi in my view you know someone who wasn't the republican party to by the way given my how people perceived trump as early as two thousand fifteen when he first announced and how skeptical everybody pretty much was that he would survive the primaries. Let alone win the presidential election so i mean i'm just gonna i say that not that answers the more general abstract question but i think that there is room to indeed stand your ground as much as possible on moral principle political usability damned in a lot of cases also depends. I guess on like where you view yourself in the system for example. If you have your people like bernie sanders who go back decades calling for something and can you help moving it forward with other kinds of political actors who take different approaches and is that part of a wider structural complex structural approach to policy change and that's the way i've wrapped my mind around the impeachment question. Where is it possible that it's it's also this elaborate thing where it's nice to have. Nancy pelosi placate the <hes> more moderate voices out there by saying no. We're not going to rush to impeachment so long as you could have people challenge for on the record who's to say that she didn't know all along with that was part part of her master plan just saying terms of blake politics politics as manipulation and it's much more than just what a person says right right. It's also group think execute plans that are very complex. The whole russia situation in itself and the russian attack on our democracy really showed that quelled it didn't really perhaps answer the philosophical question so well and that really gets even deeper into the crux. You're on the complexity of reconciling imperfection with principals kamala harris. She's a toughie to she's complicated complicated woman. Does this hurt how we want to think about her or or does it just enable us to look at her more objectively answer as a human being. What mistakes would she have to to make to disqualify her. Why would we disqualify. Joe biden who who also has pretty rough patches in his record by the way <hes> who changes when it's convenient for him and say well you know principles are one thing but life's not perfect and he did what he could when you grant that to someone and wendy not and i guess there are a lot of different contexts is one thing to they were all union raw going to make mistakes and maybe you should or shouldn't forgive them. I think chipped compensation <hes> in the context of someone running for the office of the presidency. Obviously you're going to have a particular criteria with that. I don't know probably not a conversation that gets necessarily decided easily but with respect to kamala harris. I do want to talk about some particular and i wanna thank <hes> tulsi gabbard for really i think to be. She was the winner of the debate last night. She hadn't really thought young jewish thirty eight smart to me. She was the winner mind you. I have some strong disagreements with tulsi gabbard. You can actually recall. I thinking my last slate of commentaries in the last time she was in a debate. I think she was one of the losers in might debate because i just deeply disagree with her opinion on afghanistan i should say <hes> by the way i think representative gabbard for service not just as a representative but for indeed serving in our military being veteran and while i disagree with her convictions on the can't stand questions <hes> obviously say that as someone who hasn't been there someone not in the military that doesn't mean. I don't opinion though there'd be the fallacy. It'll be a fallacy to say. I don't <hes> obviously there's going to be a degree of credibility. We might say on surface. She has i don't they're certainly she seemed more and dealt with more context and i have that <hes> that's beside the point because has the point today on saying she really good job last night and was he did really first of all. She really shook up the way i thought about a debate that is to say that she reminds me to reiterate this idea that as important as debates are they're very important. There's much more than taking away from them. The idea that someone performed well on the debate stage there's much more than saying there was a winner in the debate on a loser and a debate. There's much more than a person's rhetoric. You've got fantastic rhetoric but not necessarily be fantastic candidate. I mean i think a really good example. There would be senator gillibrand from new york. I mean let's be clear if rhetoric where the only a category i would say she's probably my winner. I think she is mad eloquent. I think she's articulate. I think she's clear here. I think if i were looking for a political spokesperson if i were hiring for that position i think on equivocally i would give that to gillibrand her elizabeth warren. I think a very very definitely the two people who are clearest and really just enunciating what they think and being as unambiguous as possible at least in contrast to the other folks <hes> what did what did she say last night. That just really impressed me. We'll see if i could find it. I know i i put a little note on her exceptional clarity. I don't remember what it was. I know it had to do with the crossing the border thing thing i think gillibrand point was that by sort of decriminalizing the the crossing the border that doesn't mean there's no accountability for and that putting that into civil courts still has some accountability going on. I think that that gillibrand did the best job emphasizing a difference between accountability for violation of the law in contrast to what the particulars of the statutory language would say about it. I thought you did the best job of sort sort of setting that conversation open. I still think there's a lot of ambiguity about things regarding the border but i i just thought good job and i had brought up in the last time she really did a good job in saying that it's not capitalism that's bad it's greed and it's the addressing addressing the greed that we need to do not this idea of free enterprise in general so i mean i just think that she's a really good spokes woman but if that were all it would be easy to say she should probably be president or vice president <hes> an excellent warren withing the queen of rhetoric for sure among other things the vicar there <hes> but tulsi gabbard reminds me that there's much more to debate than just how eloquent someone eloquence being only one tree that would be ideal to have <hes> presidential candidate. Let alone a president or any politician in general..
