Biden administration faces challenges at U.S.-Mexico border
"A new development in the ongoing effort to reunite some 500 migrant Children who are separated from their families under the Trump Administration, zero tolerance policy at the US Mexico border. Biden administration will now allow families who were separated the option of being reunited here in the United States. Here's Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas yesterday, stressing the need to undo Previous administration's work. We will dig out of the cruelty of the past administration and we will rebuild our nation's asylum system. And all of our humanitarian programs of which we have been historically so proud. Jacob. Sober off is an NBC and MSNBC correspondent and author of separated inside an American Tragedy, and He's been following this story and joins us now. Welcome to the show, Jacob Good to be back with your time you thanks. Yes. So the most significant part of this effort is that it allows families to be reunited here on U. S soil. Why is this especially important? Well for the very reason that the families left their home country and came to seek asylum in the United States in the first place. Many of them were fleeing danger, persecution of starvation, malnutrition, acute food and security. The list goes on and on and when they made it to the United States of America, the place that represented safety and security and asylum. They were tortured. In the words of physicians for human rights. They were put through government sanctioned child abuse, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics. It was one of the greatest human rights catastrophes of my lifetime, In the words of official who had worked on the reunifications, as he told me directly, And so this is the recourse that all of the advocates and the lawyers that I've been working with these families now for over three years. Have been seeking and it's welcome news. It's not reunification yet, but it's a step in that direction. Let's get to the particulars. How will these reunification efforts actually work? How will families know about these policy changes? Literally door to door knocking and Central America. There's a steering committee in the federal lawsuit that won the reunification of the family's missile versus ice on their going door to door justice in motion the women's Refugee Commission kids in need of defense. This is a group that has been involved in this process for quite some time. But up until this point. The reason there were 611 parents of Children who had been separated, had yet not been contacted That numbers now 400. 99 after 112 of them have been found over the course of the last month. The reason it's been taking so long is because of a lack of willingness from the federal government under the Trump administration to participate in this process, and the Biden administration has now changed that. Okay. I have just under a minute with you. But the C l U and groups like physicians for human rights have applauded these changes. But they're also calling on actors involved in these separations to be held accountable. How How would that happen? I think it's the most critical, remaining unanswered question about the family separation tragedy. I really think that that's you know what it must be called, Um, you know, the president said during the final presidential debate, he believed this was criminal. He said he was gonna launch a thorough investigation of the Justice Department. There's plenty of evidence of who was responsible for this policy. Whether it was Jeff Sessions Stephen Miller, Jean Hamilton, Kristine Nielsen. Kirsten Yes, Excuse me. That list goes on and on as well. It's a matter of whether they whether or not they want to pursue an investigation, like the president said that they would Jacob will have to have you on again. Jacobs Oberoth is NBC's correspondent and author of separated Inside an American Tragedy. Thanks for joining us, Thanks.

The chip shortage is a manufacturing problem that wont be easy to solve
"Here's what's going on. With the chip shortage thing. I among us chipmakers only intel fabricates. Its own chips in the us. The rest contract with big companies mostly in taiwan or korea which are known as fabs the biggest tsmc in samsung. Their facilities are incredibly expensive and take years to build and even upgrade now add in pandemic lots of people at home buying computers tablets phones throw in the pandemic slowing down. The actual manufacturing and there aren't enough chips for cars medical equipment or all those other devices last week. President biden requested thirty seven billion dollars from congress to kick start the domestic supply chain for chips on shell. Sag covers the semiconductor industry at more insights and strategy. I asked him. If that'll be enough. I think thirty seven billion dollars is very likely a down payment. I'm not really sure it's enough because ultimately if we want to move enough chip producing capacity to the us There needs to be a considerable monitor investment to incentivize the tsmc's in the samsung zoo world to do that. So the companies that develop chips in the united states many of them all contract with the same foundry right. Tsmc so it's not like they're completely in charge of their own supply. They are constrained by how many chips say. Emc can produce and what other arrangements. It has to sell tips to other companies exactly. So there's there's tsmc the samsung and there's global foundries Those are like the bigger ones. Tim is their provider of everyone. Silicon and based on the customer relationship that accompany house with tsmc ultimately determines what priority they get in that pecking order of. What's available and then tell me about intel does have its own foundry but it doesn't seem like that's going that well yeah. They had some of their own challenges with these new or process nodes and they've been struggling to overcome them and they just recently got a new ceo and they're really aggressively pushing for resolving these issues But they've they've shown that they've been able to overcome some of their challenges and increase their supply because they had shortages of their own prior to the pandemic And now they seem to be kind of getting back on track to a degree but ultimately intel is only producing intel products. This is a complicated problem to solve. Do you think that there is a best solution like do. We just have to wait out. Covert it in this shortage and beef up. Companies like tsmc or is the intel model of companies producing their own chips. Going to be the future. I think there is a valid concern in wanting to have a certain percentage of chip capacity in the us. We have to just figure out what is the right number. For how much chip capacity. We need in the us and how much we as us. Taxpayers are willing to front that bill to ensure that national security level of chips. Apply right because it will most likely come down to a minimum necessary investment. Because i just don't think that it makes sense for the us to try to replicate what tsmc incur and samsung have done in korea and taiwan. Because it's double digit billions and that's just a short term cost. What is and this is just out of curiosity in some ways. What is the role. What role does apple play. I mean i wasn't apple like pretty early to go fabulous and maybe kickstarts some of this trend and then now apple is like intel creating its own chips for many of its products and building this kind of big apple only business. I'm just kind of curious about where they sit in this whole landscape. It's interesting because like you said apple is fabulous and they do. They do design their own chips but they ultimately still do depend on. Tsmc to those trips. And i believe they are number one customer but they do have a role in the industry where they they do influence. What kind of tools are necessary for the fabs to purchase Materials and new technologies are being adopted because ultimately you know what apple wants does drive how the market moves in terms of sensors and and chips. So i think apple's influence is one its size They do influence how much industry will grow and they also influence what kinds of technologies get adopted because their scale make make certain types of technologies profitable And i think with this trip shortage. You're seeing apple not really talk about it very much at all. Because they're kind of the first ones in the pecking order and I think that they've anticipated chip demand just enough that they probably don't really have much to be worried about. So and the pecking order

I thank you for following us to the second half of the American Rescue plan by accident bitin and we're going to get started. So I can start to read out. Because I think that we need to know ourselves. What is in President Biden's rescue plan so that we have this information for ourselves. We're not depending on anyone to tell us what's in the plan we need was in the black and I know there's a lot of people calling up to Washington because as I'm reading this everything's playing out in Washington right now, this is February 27th. 2021 and right now in Washington this plan is going through the system many people oppose it. It's very much needed and we need to know what's in this plan so that we know if we support this plan or not. Okay, so I'm going to pick up where I left off in part one of President Biden's American Rescue plant. And right now we're at at the point where the president has laid out his plan for extended and expanded unemployment insurance benefits. So American workers can pay their bills around 18 million Americans rely on the unemployment insurance program. Congress did the right thing by continuing expanded eligibility and extending the number of weeks unemployed workers can receive benefits off one study estimates that extending pandemic unemployment insurance programs through 2021 could create our save over five million jobs. These benefits are set to expire in weeks. Even as the covid-19 pandemic worsens millions of Americans are receiving benefits check through Unemployment Insurance programs. That will no longer serve new beneficiaries starting in mid-march, and I believe they have to have this off everything in place in Washington by March I think they're trying to do it by March 14th. Because the plan is fastly going

Hampshire directly relates to Biden's desire to kill the program that produces heating oil. You just go down this list that was one of those rate occasions where the president by slowing down and letting Biden Talk Aloud Biden, the foam of the ball time, and then third there's this whole question of the family corruption with China, Russia and Ukraine and it comes down to a really simple test question. You know we we have absolute certainty. That for example, a three and a half million dollar wire transfer was made from a Russian oligarch two hunter. Now. Does first of all does anybody doubts that if your son or your daughter got three and a half million bucks in one way or transfer, they might have On was doing with, but they have a complete blackout on this. Guy Bob. Alinsky to that has you know phones going back to twenty fifteen with specific quotes and specific meetings that he was attending as one of Hunter's partners by the way to have been criminally convicted ones in jail once awaiting sentencing. That implicate Joe Biden and bring him right up to speed on all things. Hundred Biden business dealings with Russia Ukraine Kazakhstan and China. I wrote today it's as though the Washington Post it said to Woodward and Bernstein please don't pay any attention to Nixon. Point actually you know it's this is insane. How can the major so-called news organizations in the US? Have, pretty solid information that the dictatorship in China, which is a totalitarian dictatorship. No contract within American, political figure could possibly have occurred without the approval the dictatorship. All right three arguments you have three arguments you want the president to make in the closing days. He's making one in Pennsylvania and New Mexico in Oklahoma Texas and Ohio about fracking. He's making another message which fits the economy and I think he has an economic argument of the trump recovery and the biden depression and the whole fracking fight isn't exact model of that trump.

Lying and corrupt Joe Biden is saying and doing Now, Bob Alinsky is spent a Lotta time apparently, not only before the Senate Homeland Security and governmental affairs committees but with the FBI spending many many hours I am told with them as as well. If, if you had a Senate report that concluded that we already have Joe Biden on tape, you're not getting a billion dollars unless you're fire prosecutor investigating my zero experience on hunter being paid millions. Hunter have any experience in Ukraine no oil no gas no energy. No. Why would you pay a millions because his father's device present probably even said that in Good Morning America. three and a half million dollars from a Russian oligarch, the First Lady of Moscow. How come they're a wire transfers with a Kazakhstan? Oligarch. Tarnaud Biden's firm how come Devon Archer. is now been criminally convicted awaiting his sentencing and what about this other guy? Bevan Cooney. He's now in jail another hunter biden associate. Now you've got you know three plus years of electronic data text messages, emails, etc from Bob Alinsky and he's saying in fact Joe Biden lied through his teeth and you and I both know everybody not just you and I everybody in this audience knows you all know I know that if the last name was hunter trump that'd be very different. Media coverage about all this, the mob, the media, big tech, the Democratic Establishment Week, Republicans, the rhino establishments are all against Donald trump all things trump the only thing that's GonNa stop them as you in eight days. You're the ultimate jury listen for example, how the mob the media just runs full interference about this.

You've got six hours unless you're fire a prosecutor they ignored it. They ignore that so sick this is listen I just want to deal in fact because there is so much speculation out. There and there is zero evidence that Hunter Biden nor Joe Biden it anything wrong here we should note again you said this on the air many times there is no evidence that Joe Biden was involved in any. Of course, the letter note that there is no evidence that Joe Biden or Hunter Biden has done anything wrong I just want to reiterate and let's be clear for the viewers no evidence Biden did..
"biden" Discussed on Skullduggery
"Him, begin to ramp up coming out of Labor Day, and that tempo will continue and increase between now and election day you'll be he'll be out there traveling he'll be going to battleground states and you know he'll be meeting people on the ground where they are from all walks of life all political parties in the big cities and in smaller towns I think you'll see that over the course of the next seven weeks. I WANNA get back to a few foreign policy questions if that's okay. Russia and actually before we get to that, just obviously we know what the Russians did in two, thousand sixteen and reports of what they're doing this year have Lee as the Biden campaign seen evidence that the Rut that Russian hackers are seeking to penetrate any of your emails. I am not aware of I. Don't know the answer to that question. What I do know is that Microsoft has indicated that Russian hackers including some of the same folks who around for years ago from the GRU have been targeting allies. But I have not been briefed on the question of whether been direct efforts attrition of the by an campaigns emails themselves in that foreign affairs article referenced before Biden wrote, We must impose real costs on Russia for its violations of international norms and stand with Russian civil society. This was written before the poisoning of Navan me the main. Russian. figure. But then he also writes in the very next paragraph I will also pursue an extension of the new start treaty and anchors strategic stability between the United States and Russia. What if those two goals that he articulates here are in conflict if we impose real costs on Russia, it undermines our ability to have a new start treaty with the Russians which takes precedence. Curbing a nuclear arms treaty or imposing real costs on Russia for its violations in their national look I. Know You're GonNa, think this is a bit of the dodge but I don't think it is i. think that that is a false choice I believe the United States can pursue effective sanctions policy against Russia and get the Russians to work with us on matters of arms control negotiation and part of the reason I believe that. Is because I lived it. I was there negotiating on the Iran nuclear deal with the Russians part of the p five plus one telling the Russian negotiators that sanctions were coming with respect to what they did in Ukraine, and then securing Russian cooperation in a series of heart asks of Iran. So we can walk and Chew Gum at the same time here I think that we can take measures. To respond hold accountable through the Magnitsky Act and other staps those who are participating in these vile acts including against Mr Navalny while at the same time sitting down with Russia on matters of security like the extension of the new start treaty. Another issue that is getting some attention is the war in Yemen and we have a report today from the New York Times that a State Department lawyer in two thousand sixteen while the Obama Biden Administration was in office concluded that American support for the Saudi war in Yemen including providing precision, guided bombs and other logistical support for bombing raids that. killed thousands of innocent civilians could amount to a war crime and that senior officials in the State Department and in the administration could be held liable for that. Now, I know you are one of the former Obama administration officials who signed that letter in two thousand eighteen saying that the Obama Biden support for the Saudi war in Yemen was a mistake and you regret it. But I don't know that I've heard whether the vice president shares that view and whether he spoke up at the time in opposing what President Obama was doing in providing that military support for the Saudi warned him. So the vice president has said that he would end support for the Saudi war in Yemen it would end in and he would not, and by the way going back to your question about Jamal Kashogi that it has been so many debates over the course of the cycle that I've momentarily forgotten. He spoke to the issue of Kashogi and said, one of the things that will be on the table would be a suspension of arms sales to the Saudis writ large but certainly, you would not be supplying them with any weapons or any military or logistical support for the war in Yemen. That's point number one but number two is I was not actually in the administration in two thousand sixteen and therefore don't know exactly what the nature of the internal deliberations were nor have I had the opportunity to look at data in detail the report laid out point number three as the basic proposition that US support. For Saudi, Arabia was going to be helpful to the cause of stability and peace in the region did not bear out period and therefore it would be a good thing for the vice president. To win this election, be able to implement an outcome that has the United States ceased. Any hand in the continued prosecution of that war so he will cut off arms at all arms sales to the Saudis. What what he said in the debate is that that would be on the table as as part of the response to what happened which Walker show. Gee, I got to say Jake I do hear a lot of waffling here like maybe we'll consider it but I can't promise. That's what we're GONNA do well, you can call waffling I what I would say is the vice president has been absolutely crystal clear in his position that. There has to be more accountability for Xiaojie than there is, but I certainly not gonna sit on this podcast and close off his options for how he's going to carry that out whether it's with respect to arms sales or with respect to sanctions. But you can you know come back on here in a year if we win this election and I think I will be able to look guys in the eye over zoom. And be able to say, yes, we did follow through on holding them accountable way so. Wait. It's it's you know it's hard for me to speak on his behalf when he and I haven't sat down to have a long conversation about what the exact nature of this is, and you know you guys can can appreciate that this is not. Just, very quickly. So year from now, we're going to be doing everything resume I was gonna say I hope not. I I got a couple more questions. Jake you you were talking about debates were two weeks away from the first presidential debate efforts of all I don't know has the commission announced a you expecting these will be not on zoom but physical debates both looking there. Okay. you know have been deeply involved in debate crap in the past I'm sure you will be this time around as well. What do you think? Donald Trump's strengths and weaknesses as a debater and what will you be advising Joe Biden going into that I debate. Well, I would say Donald Trump strength and weaknesses is basically that he has no shame and no real relationship with the truth. So that's a strength because he doesn't get phased by anything he just will keep powering on through. It's a weakness because over the course of ninety minutes is just complete lack of credibility ends up shining through and I feel that that's what happened to him in two thousand sixteen and I expect to see some something similar in twenty twenty. The other thing that I would just say in this regard is that the trump campaign has spent a lot of time lowering expectations on Joe Biden by saying he's not gonna be able to show up and be affected in these debates and I would just say Donald Trump to the extent. He's spinning that story in his own brain is going to be an for rude awakening because Joe Biden is going to come to the activate. Don't you WanNa keep lowering those expectations? Luck. My..
"biden" Discussed on Left, Right & Center
"This is Josh, Barrow and welcome to left right and center. You're civilized yet provocative antidote. The self contained opinion bubbles that dominate political debate. It is the second week of August and this week Joe Biden got a running mate California Senator Comma Harris. The Biden campaign mentioned does a lot of public suspense before settling on the most obvious choice a choice that fits well within the Biden campaign strategy of avoiding unnecessary risks and trying to appeal to his broader swath of the electorate as possible unlike. A lot of the other candidates that Biden considered Harris has a big national profile and the typical level of experience that you would expect if someone of vice president or president, she's been vetted through the media and her strengths and weaknesses as a candidate are well known. So most likely no surprises here. Harris alienates few potential Biden voters unlike other possible who might have been seen as too far to the left or too close to the center she's also a historic pick should be the first woman. To serve as vice president and she's the first black woman and first Asian American person ever on a major party national ticket. This isn't a contradiction but I think it says something interesting about where we are as a country that she is both a historical pick in this way, and also the safest most consensus candidate that Biden could have chosen to talk about that I want to bring in our left right and center panel is always I'm your center I'm joined by Meghan mcardle calmness the. Washington Post on the right and left Dory and Warren President of the Center for Community Change Hello Great to be with you thanks for having me during what do you make of the choice of Comma Harris I think it's fascinating and exciting from a democratic and progressive perspective because it shows I that Democrats aren't making the same mistake they did in two thousand sixteen by attempting to appeal to we might think of as a nonexistent swing voter by taking no risks as essentially what Hillary Clinton did. This pick shows that I think the Democratic Party and former Vice President Joe Biden in particular are recognizing that Americans I want leadership that reflects the diversity of the country and that this could potentially be a. Pick for base voters I want to go back to something you said at the top Josh around the most obvious pig let's just remember. I don't think we would say this is the most obvious pick. So it's sort of a side of how much at least the Democratic Party has shifted over the last four years and frankly the country and then I think on the other side in terms of the Republican Party in the trump campaign. I think they'd have a strategy for her and so I think what we're now seeing as their bumbling around trying to you know, use all sorts of epithets and birtherism to Plano and Castro's non-citizens. There's just a lot of Michigan that's happening on the other side because I don't think they expected this conventional wisdom pick to be the pick. During I thought one thing that was interesting about this choice because the president said that he was surprised that Biden Pick Kamala Harris which is. A little weird because it was she was presumably leading the VP veepstakes the the whole way through. But I think that trump looks at this and there's a significant risk that Harris overshadows biden on the ticket and certain ways. Certainly Republicans already one of the things they're saying about it is that you know it's really really she's going to be running the show and then it's this weird double thing where she's going to be running the show and then she herself as a puppet of. And the left and that sort of thing but it's Certainly she. She has such a high profile and there are certain Democrats who are also eager for that sort of narrative basically that you know people who weren't that eager about Biden in the primary Maybe they see this as Harris is the thing that is motivating them here, and so I think that the trump but frankly a lot of other politicians would have looked at that and said, you know I want a pick that really says that I'm in charge I don't want people to be able to say that I'm overshadowed by vice presidential candidate and I think it's interesting that Biden wasn't. Wasn't put off by that and went ahead and chose her I. think it shows a certain maturity and if you think about what trump is predictably doing, he's calling her meat he's he's using all his favorite sexist attacks. He's sort of like the boy who cried wolf. These things about so many women nasty women. It's a rerun of the last time. A woman pissed him off and Biden picking. Harris. Shows a level of maturity and willingness to work with those who have differences compared to themselves as remember. Harris criticized Biden on his shortcomings and instead of whining and crying about it like the the crybaby and the White House he chose to work with our in picker knowing the full risk that she might overshadow him I think we should all be taking notes of that kind of political maturity. The other point here is for all the attacks that are gonNA come comma. Harris on Senator Harris. On the one hand there, you could make the case that there's a question empirical question will she be pre? We'll see increase turnout among particularly black voters are not on the other hand, the more trump attacks, her the more. There will be a rallying fact around her Megan, what do you make of this?.

When asked what would you do? Differently I listened to the experts well. We already know what he'd do differently. We watch them on n one h one to quote him really h one n one. So then you know. The train wreck continues with these interviews. You know whether he said. I'm going to be joe or beat Joe Biden. It sounded like Beach Biden to me, but whatever it is, but he's doing a pretty good job of beating himself, and he does this interview with a radio host by the name of Charlemagne. It was so bad you can see like Joe shushing away a staffer who tried to prevent. You know this ever confused boss from from answering any more questions, and that's when he said the line that you just heard. You Ain't black if you don't support him in the election. Well. Now rightly, all the criticism has been taking place You have even the radio host Charlemagne saying that Biden is an intricate part of the system that needs to be dismantled the founder of B. E.

He spent his fifteen minutes laying the wreath on Memorial Day back in his basement, being stupid and he couldn't Bill O'Reilly. Right couldn't answer the question and that is. What would you do differently joe? Listen to the experts. That's not an answer because Donald Trump listened to the experts and the expert by the way none of the experts agreed with him on the travel ban or the quarantine or the subsequent travel bans. He did all that on his own. And we'll Joe, Biden well I. Think this whole Mucho thing about not wearing a mask. The president probably is the one person doesn't have to wear a mask because he's getting tested and everyone around him has to get tested. which is the right thing to do and I'd say that regardless of WHO's the president? But what's going to happen in one hundred sixty days? A lot is going to happen. Then you're GONNA have once Joe has to come out his bunker and they're going to have whatever convention they're gonNA. Have Trump's GONNA have a convention, a real convention, regardless of what the Democrats do and I I would imagine. There's probably pressure on the Democrats, Wa-, what do we do? He's GonNa. Have One. We're GONNA. Look stupid. Joe Is going to be in his basement. That's not going to look to exciting so we'll see what happens here. But then he's going to have to answer for quid pro quo. Joe Is going to have to answer for zero experience hunter and Ukraine and China then he's going to have to identify what he would have done differently why he called. The travel bans phobic hysterical fearmongering. He's going to have to explain why eight years as vice president thirteen million more Americans on food stamps eight million more in poverty. Then he's going to have to explain. Why did why did IT TAKE DONALD TRUMP? Because he's you know he now has the definition while if you vote for trump, you ain't black.

Michelle Obama wants it or not, but I'll take trump's economic record against the Obama Biden record any day, and I'll take trump's foreign policy success and beating Baghdadi and killing him and killing.

"All things Riley Simple Ma'am Mr O'Reilly. All right. You WanNa talk about Biden Women enough time last. Segment your thoughts on this on CNN last night. Very simple question posed. If you were President what would you do differently to handle pandemic saw? Mr Biden was lucid. He had control over his words last night killing Reagan. So I'm familiar with because when Ronald Reagan got shot. He lost that ability for a little while. Got It back so biden could not or would not answer that question and I'm sitting there going what's going on. I mean you don't have anything that you would do differently. He said Oh. I've listened to the scientists like who was that imply that trump doesn't listen to the side. There's what's out there. I mean come on think not welcome. Sorry go ahead. Well anything but he listened to the scientists. That's what when they said and this is where there was no option here. The country demanded a shutdown the projections which have all been wrong. So far were two and a half million Americans. We're going to die bill. That's what they told us. They got it wrong. China lied all the models were wrong. You know faucher. I love the guy but he was saying. The risk is low on February twenty-ninth and he was saying that you know you don't have to wear a mask like March tenth and March nineteen. If you're young and healthy you can go on a cruise ship. Yeah but that was a teed up for Biden to absolutely knock it out of the park. Here's what I would do differently than president trump. Abcd he couldn't come up with one Hannity. WanNa why because while they were impeaching him. He put in the travel ban. This was ten days after the first identified corona virus case then the quarantine I in over fifty years then subsequent travel bans alder and impeachment. They weren't talking about corona.

"I've only spoken to her once since She came out with her whole story and it. The entire conversation was more about moral support. And you know giving her whatever feedback. I could in terms of the way in which people are going to come for her. The various things that she needed to do to protect herself. I think it was more a lot more practical advice and also just moral support and letting her know that I was thinking about her and that. I'm you know obviously empathize with everything. She's going through. What's your number one piece of practical advice? My number one piece of practical advice to her was that she just really needed to take it day by day and to focus on herself and her truth and her why her why yes like. Why did you decide to speak out? Tell me more about that. Well that's for me. That's what kept me grounded when I was experiencing so much harassment after I spoke about my interactions with that I had to always focus on. Why did I decide to do this? And we talked about those reasons. I'm curious why did you decide to tell your story? I'm not sure that I know that. Like what what your decision process was. The primary reason was because I began to see photos emerge of him interacting with other women and there were stories that were written and there was even a Vignette that was done by John. Stewart and making fun of creepy uncle. Joe Biden left his hands on Stephanie. Carter shoulders for an estimated twenty seconds. You seem tense distress of me. Groping you for twenty eight straight seconds and so. I had to constantly be reminded that he was acting this way that he was making women feel uncomfortable and everyone was just laughing about it. It was not being treated seriously and I knew from personal experience what that felt like and it was wrong for Lucy. Telling her own story was a way of shifting. The way the rest of us saw what happened to her not as an incident that was laughably awkward but as an incident where she was actually harmed and that gives her empathy for. Tara Reid who seems to be seeing what happened in our own life through new eyes. Her allegations of what happened in. Biden's office have become more extreme over time at I read told. Reporters Biden made her uncomfortable. She said he ran a finger up her neck during a meeting her to serve cocktails because she had nice legs. But that story evolved into a full on assault charge. I think that the way in which we characterize the various things that she has done like for example. I don't consider the stories that she has said. I don't consider them being a story. Why not because she? All she did was leave out details. She hasn't changed the fundamental substance of any of the things that she said she experienced. It is all been part. She omitted in A. This isn't coming from her. This is what I would I would think. Is that as you gain confidence or the courage to tell a little bit more And she did try to tell a little bit more shortly thereafter but media did not in the AP said this that they were not able at the time to robbery those parts of the stories and yet Katie Helper. Now all of these additional journalists have so you have to question. How much effort did you really put into crop rating these stories that they were so easily corroborated. Al Right we should say. Joe Biden denies that anything happened between himself and Tara Reid it sounds like you believe all of allegations including the most recent ones. I do believe Tara. Ultimately in all of these situations everyone will have to come to their own conclusion. You know because there's rarely smoking gun evidence and I just hope that win folks are assessing that that they're doing so with at least in informed viewpoint and not because they have immediately made this knee-jerk reaction because this person doesn't fit the profile of a perfect victim..

"Quick were boarding. Here are the top. This episode does describe an incident of sexual assault. I heard that you have this file. You keep of hate mail. You've gotten over the last year or so. Is that true? Yes Lucy. Florez knows what it means to accuse a powerful man of hurting you. She knows what you can lose. It gets filled almost luckily not daily but it was daily. What's in there? It's a lot of. It's a lot of? Hey it's a lot of vitriol. It's a lot of cruelty and a couple. That are scary so I keep all of those because you just frankly never know when something terrible could potentially happen to you and you want there to be a record last spring before Joe Biden was officially even running for president. Lucie Florida accused him of making her uncomfortable in such a peculiar way that it seemed hard to have made up. The story goes like this movie. Lucy been running for Lieutenant. Governor of Nevada Biden had agreed to stump with her. This is back in two thousand fourteen. Lucy says they were getting ready to step out on stage together. They're all blind up listening for their cues. We were all waiting to be called and I feel his hands on me on my shoulders and that in and of itself was already weird because I was like. Oh my God the vice president. Lucy can't forget these little details of their interaction. How she hadn't washed her hair that morning and it made her especially mortified when Biden leaned in to sniff her head and then he plans this slow kiss on the top of my head and I am just. I don't know what to do. I I don't move I don't my arms are still at my side. I I just I just and I'm literally just praying to God. That is willing to listen for my name to be called because I just want to be out of that situation last year as Lucy told this story publicly over and over again it wasn't just hate mail that started pouring in. There are also messages of support messages from women. Saying I've been in situations just like that one with the boss or a with Joe Biden after you spoke out how many other women came forward with their own allegations I always lose track. I think it was seven or eight total Including me so I think it was an additional seven or an additional six. One of these women was Tara. Reid Tara Reid. A former Biden staffer accusing the former. Vp of sexual assault says she TARA ARENA SENATE PERSON. You probably know her name by now. A year. After Lucy Flora came forward were reads allegations are now at the forefront read telling the Associated Press quote. I know that I was too scared to write about the sexual assault read alleges that Biden went far beyond sniffing her hair. She says he assaulted her when she worked in his Senate office back in the ninety s Lucie Florida said that after she went public with her allegation Tara. Reid reached out to her wanted to talk. I do still have the email where she talked about that. She had several incidents with Joe Biden. And that she wanted to speak out as well but I did not end up reaching out to her because it was such a it was. It was a really difficult thing to bear. You know your as a sad. It's I don't think we talk enough about what women experience when they speak out against a powerful man you must. You must wonder what she would have sent to you. I do. I do wonder ally and I you know and I actually feel a little bit of guilt.

"All right so let's get into some details about who joe might nominate and the best way to look at that. I think is a kind of working our way through his history I think all of us were sort of surprised. Going through is history. How sort of effective. He seems to have been against justices in a lot of ways. At least he was a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee for a big chunk of his tenure as Senator and he was the chair of it from eighty seven through ninety five. I that committee holds hearings on and investigates nominations to the Supreme Court. And so I wanNA kind of run through his votes and We should note here that Supreme Court. Nominations weren't really contentious at all until about the mid eighties. Right started being contentious. And then it's sort of ratcheted up to the current day where every single one You know sort of a battle in eighty one. He voted yes on. Sandra Day. O'connor was a unanimous. Vote for yes in eighty six. He voted no on Rehnquist. As the Chief Justice Rehnquist been nominated to the courts in the early seventies and it was appointed as an associate justice. Reagan nominates him to be the chief justice. The reason that it was sort of contentious is that Rehnquist apparently tried to convince Justice Jackson in the early fifties to oppose Brown v the Board of Education to side with the segregationists and he claimed that he was just sort of an intellectual exercise when he was testifying to the committee in what was almost certainly perjury and that was one of the first. Modern era fights for over Supreme Court. Justice Biden opposes him in eighty six. So it's Yes for Scalia In a ninety eight to zero vote in Nineteen eighty-six which While a a mistake. In retrospect it was uncontroversial in large part because it was considered a big deal to get an Italian American on the court. Yeah not a joke. Eighty-seven he opposes Robert. Bork maybe the nomination that led us to where we are in terms of how aggressive the fights can be over. Supreme Court appointments. Yeah for our listeners. Who Don't Know Robert? Bourke is just a fucking huge piece of shit like your real garbage in the mid nineties after his nomination had died and all that he wrote a book called slouching toward Gomorrah Modern Liberalism and American decline like. That's the type of guy that they were trying to put on the fucking Supreme Court. He's also been very very influential in antitrust law. Which is you know all about like how we handle monopolies or prevent monopolies. I don't know if anybody has like taking a peek out their window and and you know noticed what the what. The weather's like in terms of American capitalism and monopolies. But I don't think he's theories of law have panned out to how it was Biden voted. No he played an instrumental role. In killing BORK's domination he helped recruit a few Republicans to make the no vote. Bipartisan and just publicly grilled bork on The Right to privacy which you know obviously is what underlies women's right to choose Having abortion in that Supreme Court history. That right goes back to a case called Griswold v Connecticut which was about regulating contraception and preventing people from getting contraception. And it was about you know married families having autonomy in their the privacy of their bedrooms and Biden. Just grills bork on this. And if you watch it if you don't really know what's going on it can be a little confusing but it's if you know even a little. It's pretty clear that Biden's just trying to get bored to come out and say women shouldn't have these rights and Bork is just like fuck in dodging him saying like look. Yeah have openly criticized Griswald And by Extension Roe v Wade by I've criticized the reasoning. The court used to get to these decisions. I'M NOT SAYING THAT. Like necessarily the right desert does not exist and at some point. Biden. 'cause look you've been a lot of rest for a long time you've been talking about this for a long time really telling you've seen nothing in the constitution one way or another to like make this call. You're one of the most Well read and scholarly people to come before this committee in all your short life. Have you come up with any other way to protect a married couple under the constitution against an action by a government? Telling them what they can or cannot do about birth control in their bedroom. Is there any constitutional rights anywhere in the constitution? I have never engaged in that exercise. I passed on what I was doing was criticizing doctrine. The Supreme Court was creating which was capable of being applied in unknown ways in the futures basically they killed Bork's nominee. Yeah right sort of exposed and clearly obviously just trying to avoid saying what was blatantly true you know it ended it which is good because he replaced with fucking Kennedy. Who for all his faults and we've talked about him? Being an idiot is much better than Robert. Bork and especially on both Abortion and on gay rights. Yeah Yeah you don't get the gay marriage decision. You don't work for the majority. The gay marriage is illegal in this country in many states. Without this happening right right. Yeah all right so Joe Biden. Votes no onboard. He's instrumental in knocking bork. Damn embarks place. Comes Anthony Kennedy? He votes yes on Kennedy who was confirmed ninety seven zero he votes for suitor Justice Suitor. Who ends up being a liberal by the way although as Bush senior nominee sooner gets confirmed? And then Clarence Thomas Biden votes. No on Thomas but Asterisk he leads the hearings in his as head of the committee and essentially. Just let's Republican senators openly smear Anita Hill. Who had accused very credibly in my view. Clarence Thomas of sexually harassing her at the Biden voted no on Thomas. Whatever the end of the day his actions probably didn't have a effect on the outcome of Thomas's confirmation? Just because things had sort of crystallize along party lines already at that point but his actions at that hearing nothing short of disgraceful just a fence rows. Moral failure really discussing stuff right. Yeah exactly So two thousand five by votes. No on Chief Justice John Roberts balls and strikes Mr Balls and strikes. The Umpire himself young player himself The vote was seventy eight twenty two so there was some real democratic opposition. But this wasn't a contentious one. I don't think anyone really thought that he would lose the same year he votes no on Samuel Alito The current sort of Resident Weirdo on the court. Thank yeah resident dumb ass after I think it's two thousand seven buns no longer a senator but he made statements opposing Corsican. Cavenaugh the bottom line here is. You've got some real genuine dark spots in how he handled this stuff is actual votes have been surprisingly strong. It's hard to imagine someone being much stronger I frankly he you know. He's opposed just about every Republican nominee in the past thirty years every Republican nominee since suitor. My guess is a big part of this is. He's just sort of a party. I guy think he's also been a hard liner on Roe v Wade. Frankly that's a big part of it for him and of course probably worth noting Biden's in the White House. When Obama Nominates Sotomayor and Kagan Keagan very sharp I think maybe the sharpest member of the court great writer reliable liberal vote on the big issues but she can be wishy washy strong tendencies towards formalistic reasoning for chefs. Yeah Soda my or may be impure jurisprudential terms these strongest Supreme Court justice in history by favorite. He's great and you know. I think we can mostly ignore Merrick. Garland this conversation is a pathetic and embarrassing attempt by Obama to nominate someone who the Republicans would approve. But I do want to note that I am like a little bit haunted. By the prospect that bienne would nominee Carlin fulfill legacy. He was once asked about it and said that he was open to it. Probably a meaningless statement. You know. Someone's like are you opening this sure. But yet if he did that I mean I cannot tell you how much it would just fucking flip my brain on its head. I'm no longer doing the podcast. I'm going Fulton Che Guevara if he does that. Yeah the one thing that gives me. Some confidence is his pledge right is publicly stated in reiterated that he would dominate the first black woman to sit on the Supreme Court which I mean. It's a very Joe Biden thing to say to make that sort of campaign right but like it's completely separate from ideology right. You ever seen a black lady up there yeah yeah. I don't know if you guys saw this. But Jonathan Turley the biggest fucking hack law. Professor wrote an article criticizing Biden. Pledge Calling it affirmative action in court for Constitutional Shit and one of his arguments about why this is like a bad pledge is because they're not many black women judges in select. Think about how narrow the pool is Mike Company. Beautiful and brilliant white man. Are you passing up on right? Yeah that's unreal argument right. Jonathan early fucking full grown adult putting on Florida's before he goes in.

"All on Biden Bernie has nothing to lose If I can do no harm right is he's challenge is going to be don't belittle don't flood any answers and he's you know let's face it. He needs he needs that movement that Sanders has built. He's not going to get all by the way there's going to be someone on that are never but but he's got to get most of it And they've got to get them turn out he's got to get them excited. And he he's not there yet although let. Let's just talk about Michigan for a second? And let's talk about Michigan Rick with an eye towards the general election. Assuming that Biden continues along this path pulls it off. He's the Democratic nominee Michigan's. Obviously I mean one of the absolute most important states in general election one of those that Donald Trump won and helped get him to in into the White House. We know all of that but if you look you mentioned that he won every county against Bernie Sanders. I think that the more. That's a very important thing. A lot of those counties are counties that he's going to have to take to be sure Donald Trump but the other thing was turnout was records for Democratic primary. That's right and and it was against the backdrop of corona virus and that scare and the knowledge that most of the candidates that were running. We're not in the race anymore. We're down to two in the final days. Yeah there are a lot of early votes. Something like forty percent of them early votes but The this was this was a test of all of those things. And of course Michigan takes on this kind of mythical place in the democratic mind because of the fact that it was the site if that upset by Bernie Sanders in the primaries and then that bigger upset by Donald Trump in the fall. So look if you're talking about electability if you're talking about how you relate to white working class voters the fact that Joe Biden has them already for all the flaws in his coalition. The fact that young voters are not excited about him. The fact that Latino voters are not on board the same number you can count on African American voters being solidly behind Joe Biden at this moment and white working class voters again to kind of folks that powered the Obama coalition the Bill Clinton coalition but flipped over to Donald Trump in the last couple of years They kind of like Joe and that is a that is a not insignificant factor if you're the White House if you're donald trump looking at the match up that's now developing or we've got to take a quick break when we come back. Rick is going to tell us. If.

"FROM THE NEWSROOM OF WASHINGTON POST ABC Washington Washington. It's known Nakashima with Washington. Mrs Post reports I- Martine powered March fourth today Biden surprising surge the Federal Reserve responds to the Corona virus. And why we're all doing a bad job washing our hands so who ended up winning or quote unquote winning on to produce day. Well there's winning in two sentences. There's winning in the sense of how many delegates were accrued. Philip bump covers politics fix that is to be determined some extent fourteen states each individual congressional district in all those states American Samoa. All of those contests will yield delegates based on how people dating each of those contests and as such the winner of each of those hundred eighty. Plus contest is to be determined but the real one was Joe Biden Super Tuesday for nothing now county. Now let behind. This is your campaign. Jill Biden was the winner on Tuesday simply by virtue of the fact that he won more states but particularly because he won more states when everyone a ago figured his campaign had maybe a couple more days to go. Go the press. The punishment declared a campaign did report. We're much we really saw a surge for Biden in South Carolina. He wants off Carolina in convincing fashion. And then really did. A very good job is came in a very good job of coalescing his past competitors around his candidacy. And next thing you know on Super Tuesday's seizes huge national surges surgeon. All these different states ends up winning not only southern states which is where Bernie Sanders Portland. Two Thousand Sixteen Wensley Minnesota Massachusetts which a week ago again we're saying well looks like Bernie. Sanders can win those states and knock with four NIIMI KLOBUCHAR instead ends up being super juicy me over so we're in. With whom did Biden do particularly well last night? The shortest way to answer that question and say the binded well with black voters in particular in the South. There's nuance there. The nuance is that for example. He did better in Texas. With white voters tended Bernie Sanders Bernie Sanders do better with Latino voters in Texas but Biden Scout? A win in Texas Biden also did well in Minnesota Massachusetts which obviously is a different demographic base than North Carolina or Alabama. He showed strength with White Democrats that I think people may not have anticipated that he would do. I think is important. Moving forward in the race sanders did well in states like Colorado. He did well in California too well of course Vermont but there's a really important asterisk that should be applied to sanders. Good showing California and it's going to get better over time I'll point this out. For the simple reason that Bernie Sanders was able to bank a lot of early voting absentee votes when he was doing much better in the race before this big biden surge and a lot of the California vote was already done by a week ago before last weekend before the Biden surge in that all went heavily to Bernie Sanders. We saw exit polling showed. That is the people made up their minds in the last three days by one then by ten fifteen points sanders one Nevada before that by much wider margin and it really just seems like Biden was a lot of people's acceptable. Second Choice that once the field started to thin and people were looking around and saying like well. There's a candidate that I love but there's also the candidate that I could survive seeing as the nominee and for a lot of people that was Biden in a way that I think is not true for Bernie Sanders really. What we're talking about here is there are a lot of Democrats who really like Bernie Sanders message. They like his policy ideas. They liked the idea of Medicare for all. They liked the idea of a college education being affordable or free or paid for by the Government. They like these things have Bernie Sanders has put forward but they really liked the idea of donald trump losing more right and we see that in exit poll after poll. The thing which is driving people you mean motivation to main concern is having donald trump lose after sanders emerged as the frontrunner people started to be like. Okay well what does this actually mean the context of him taking on trump and it certainly is the case. There are arguments to be made that he can beat. Donald Trump in November But polling has shown that it probably is more likely that you'll biden can be trump in in November and that really spurlock people be like okay. Then this is the guy we should put four and a big part of the argument that Sanders had been making about how he can beat. Trump in November. Is this idea of young people on that. He is the candidate that can activate young people people who would not otherwise vote. Tell you with absolute competence. We're going to win the Democratic nomination. We are going to defeat. Trump didn't necessarily support that we go sway off putting together an unprecedented grassroots multi generational multiracial movement. What we've seen over the course of the primaries that doesn't really support that this was his electability pitch you make me nominee and I'm going to bring out these people who don't normally vote and to be fair that worked to some extent for Donald Trump. Donald Trump was the beneficiary in two thousand sixteen. Both of increase turnout from people who don't normally vote who were very motivated by his campaign and from Hillary Clinton both having this perception that she was going to win and not being a particularly She didn't have a lot of enthusiasm. Powering her candidacy. So it made sense that sanders could make that case. The problem is that unlike trump his core basis support is a group. That really doesn't vote very often. There are lot of reasons why I mean we tend to talk about young people not voting and we tend to talk about it almost a pejorative sense but really what it is. It's easier to vote if you don't move all the time because you don't have to register voters you have lived in the same house because you own the house because you know where your polling places. It's easier to vote it. You're not working on election day right. There are all these reasons that young people are disadvantaged in it is harder for them to vote which makes it less likely for them to vote but it also means that if you are a candidate who's relying on those young people you're in trouble because you've got a big hill. You have to climb even before you start trying to cobble together your coalition. I also just want to talk briefly about some of the other candidates so former mayor Mike Bloomberg did not do well. He is now out of the race. Chapin very fast. But I'm wondering about Elizabeth Warren happening a lot of folks trying to turn voting into some located strategy. She was having a rally in Detroit Michigan. Prison did not vote on Tuesday night. And our colleague anyone scheme political reporter she was with Warren and warns camp last night in Detroit. She was there to kind of look down the calender rally rally people for the beyond Super Tuesday on in all ready. Here's my advice. Cast a vote. That will make you proud..
