Why Isn't Governor Abbot Deploying the Texas National Guard to Defend the Southern Border?

"Is betty lou in south texas. I'm a third generation texan Thank you for all you're doing. I am disgusted by the deplorable hans. Fly of illegal immigration into our mighty state and wants to great one nation under god. I'd like to hear more about governor abbott and other governors. What are they doing to forestall this horrible mind stress on fly. Thank you take care. God bless god. Bless thank you betty lou. She makes a great point. It's a great question. In fact tucker. Carlson asked that question last night and has apparently repeatedly invited governor abbott on his show. Evidently governor abbott has declined because tucker keeps asking the texas governor. Why are you not deploying the texas national guard. Why are you standing up to the incompetent. Inept utterly failed biden harris administration on this issue. Here's a. Tucker carlson said last night we opened the show with horrifying pictures. What's happened at our southern border. Which is completely open in. This country is being invaded. No that's not an overstatement more than a million people this year expected by the rest of the world. It's been going on for months. And we've asked texas governor greg abbott many times to come on this show to explain why he hasn't called the national guard to seal the texas border and protect the rest of us from this invasion. Greg abbott has refused to come on repeatedly so pretty soon possibly tomorrow we plan to invite his primary opponents on this show to describe what they would do if they ran texas. That might be an interesting conversation. Governor abbot one. More chance to come on sincerely. Please come on and tell us how you plan to save the rest of us. What is happening in your state. Isn't that a reasonable request. What is what is texas gonna do texas it roll over. I lived there. I love that state. I know the texas spirit. It's not acquiescence

Von for the mike gallagher show especially after this horrific news at about ghanistan karen first of all. Thank you for joining us. And second of all. This has got to be in many ways a nightmarish but of news for you out of afghanistan after you lived this with your beloved son errands passing and his sacrifice here. We go again with this nightmare in afghanistan for all the world to see it is mike. Thank you so much for allowing me to come on and just share my perspective as a gold star parents. This is a gut punch unlike anything we've experienced since our son's death just to watch what's happening in afghanistan right now. I'm involved right now with trying to help. Families get out of afghanistan and just the messages that i'm getting day and night are ripping my heart out. I know that my son would literally be rolling over in his grave right now. If you saw what has happened to this nation that he gave his life in and four. It's terrible i i have. My words are coming very with great difficulty. I could imagine and i. I thought i knew we were going to talk to you this week. And this news breaks The department of defense of course confirming. Us civilian casualties from this explosion. this terrorist attack. I i mean. I hate to kind of pull you into the political quagmire. But it's very difficult to to avoid expecting some ability from the biden harris administration over this.

Would you agree with that assessment. I think that assessment is an understatement. I think what's happening right. Now is an atrocity. Unlike anything we've seen.

Were kind of shaking our heads saying what did our our sons and daughters die for the. You know the way we have exited.

"Six year old critical race theory. You're teaching them. What the truth is and so when issues in history like juneteenth are kept out of books to me that seem kind of like an issue of truth not an issue that even critical race there. It's just like are you teaching the truth. Yeah well you know. I certainly i know what critical race theory is at. I am bread tipper dish. You're that people are not teaching middle school. Students and high school students critical race theory. They don't know what it is but the idea of talking about race is not necessarily critical risk theory. I mean the thing that i think is so funny about this or so weird. Is that people act as if we just started just sort of made up race as a topic that beforehand. Nobody ever talked about race. But if you look at the laws from the eighteenth century in the nineteenth century essays books legislation whatever you want to look at. They talked about race all the time. They legislated about it. The texas constitution supports slavery. It says that black people can't be citizens of the republic of texas so if you're going to teach history the history of the texas republic. How can you do that without reading the constitution. If you use primary documents and your teaching the truth you're gonna be talking about race it. You are among other things. That texas is a powerhouse. In is shaping the textbooks that many parts of america get have you thought about you know the role of texas in in textbook production in what gets in what gets out a lot. Actually have because this is. This is a real controversy. I was called upon to talk about this some years ago when they wanted to take jefferson out of textbooks because he didn't believe in the divinity. Jesus so yes. I have thought about this quite a bit and we really do have to push back against this effort to hide history. I think it's so wrong. Headed to imagine that talking about the truth of what happened in the past means that you hate the country you hate texas. You hate these places. That's not true at all but you have a realistic view of the men. That's what people seemingly don't want kids to have professor annette gordon reed. Thanks so much for joining us.

Nominee ginny what to. You is the importance of this representation couple of newsletters ago. I think Where i focused on how racist the legal profession is in the view of indigenous federal indian law. You know when you look at who are feeling these federal judges largely white and male and has been that way. I think it was last month. We currently filled only the third native american judge since seventeen eighty nine so when i read the story i always see things through the indigenous lens and i did not find it surprising but it is uplifting to know that the courts are getting a little less wider. And that why these appointments matter when you're looking at critical cases that even if it's say for instance involving something like abortion that goes to supreme court when you talk about those kinds of pieces of legislation they are not divorced at all from this kind of systemic inequality when it comes to people of color so we spoke a few weeks ago about how nicole hannah jones was denied tenure at her alma mater the university of north carolina after concerns were raised regarding her pulitzer prize winning sixteen nineteen project and there now seems to be this broader war over critical race theory in the us so jenny. How do you think about how important is to understand our history of racism. While i don't know if any of you will repair attention but rick. Santorum was recently fired from his pendant position with the network over these outlandish statements that he made about the foundation of the united states. I was paying attention. Thank you so much for that farai. He's refused to apologise about his statements which basically said that the birth of the nation you know did not evolve native american people at all and that we have no culture and i find that interesting as we have this dialogue about the history wars right. I mean we're in a point in this reckoning where you have as farai you've said you know everything is politicized these days and that boils down to the actual Notion of which narrative you know is accepted..

People have a right to be heard and to air these grievances in a formal capacity. But when you look at the traction of where that propose legislation stands. I mean it barely just got introduced in had any real leverage and when i read that editorial there is mild disappointment. And not seeing that. There hasn't been a stronger call for the same kind of commission that we've seen play out in canada to legitimize this horrible horrible history. Yeah will it's. It's early days yet.

Let me just jump in and say that someone. I know who is jib way. and who's from. The upper peninsula of michigan years ago explained to me how she was fluent in her language because she was the youngest child and was taken away to a boarding school but all of her older siblings were and the trauma that induced in her family loss of language. Not being the only one. And i just want to point out that this is heart of a campaign to us. Colonial methods of eroding culture to consolidate land ownership and control. I mean we just have to be very clear about what was happening. This is not just about kids or even dead kids. it's about things like landownership and it took me a long time to even wrap my brain around that history and the present damage. Yeah really good point and just actually speaks to the need for a fuller public airing. So that all of us can understand kind of what was lost and the toll of this very shameful period in our history so there's new evidence that former president trump appears to have actively attempted a coup to keep himself in power. I wanna come to you on this. Because i want to first. What's your reaction to this. And then also what reaction do you expect from average americans and what does this mean for. Republicans the reality is. It's probably not going to change much. Except the historical record. The former president was not impeached by the senate. He can run for president again. I read deeply into a bunch of different newsletters and news outlets from the far right and they're now like picking running mates for trump twenty twenty four. Because we know that. Mike pence is persona non grata. And i'll almost got beat down in the insurrection. So the whole rhetoric is trump is still in the power position to run the party and until seated republicans who are office holders. Today decide that. that's not the case. It's the case we talked about how the administration official nominees of color or having a difficult time with their confirmations on this show including secretary holland so out with that.

"Sent sending a letter requesting president biden vice-president harris to lower the medicare eligibility age to fifty five they want to expand medicare benefits include hearing dental and vision care. Wouldn't that be something. allows a program to negotiate lower drug prices. I saw a senator sanders clapping about that In the address. I mean just does this kind of pressure for members of their own party worked to put this on the agenda while i think that maybe the average person doesn't know about what i like to call sign on industrial complex but these letters are really important. Way that senators communicate with one another. It's extremely common for people to to send out letters like this organizations and members of congress. It truly hearkens back to these like very formal days when legislators would write letters to each other. So it's kind of quaint in that way but it's also really important because the more senators that you can get on a letter the better I would say seventeen is a little low. So there's more to go to make sure that This gets into the package. I'm an sometimes these. These letters can be a signal Amount of support That a policy has in the caucus end. You know this. This is just isn't what we would expect for something as important as medicare eligibility. So i don't i don't know if this is really gonna make a difference but this pressure on the medicare eligibility age is essential because it would make a huge difference to people for that age should be lowered and i will just add to that you talked about The medicare conversation. But you really don't have issues like black. Maternal health police reform equal pay on the table. Unless you're getting pressure in less women and people of color are really at the table so those are all good points.

"Do you agree or disagree. Kamala harris is tricking. Everyone she only cares about becoming president herself that comes from we heard that in focus groups when i saw that was one of the top predictors. I literally gas out loud. I kind of just thought to myself. You're kidding me. Out of a hundred seventy six questions. I asked in fifty different issues from abortion to the economy to so you know threats to socialism everything this is what comes up once i kind of see the other predictors which relate to race gender in power then at all Made sense voters can just project all of the views. They have toured black people toward asian people toward women toward power and threat to power into this one public. Figure what do you wanna see public policy makers and journalists do with the kind of data that you've produced a lot of journalists have been inch expressed interest in these data but nobody has written about it yet. I'm kind of curious about that. And to be honest. I shouldn't even say this. But i crafted the intro with a white male journalist. In mind i think. For policymakers i think one great example is defunding the police that was used as a wedge issue republicans use that a ton and in our survey we. We did find for trump voters. That was one of the top predictors. That democrats want to defend the place right but first of all. I get in trouble for saying this but defending the police is not controversial. When you're talking about the policy you know when we say okay. Would you want police to focus on murders and blah blah blah and then other service providers to respond to homelessness mental illness. Whatever only eighteen percent of voters opposed that so i it sounds very much like certain freezes triggering in ways that don't really reflect people's policy desires. It's that the language. Or the i or or perhaps the idea of who's associated with can you know push past what people actually want from public policy. That's kind of interesting a little scary. Absolutely i mean the good thing. Is that defunding. The police phrase. You know there's been a lot of controversy. Personally i think it was. I think it was monumental in that issue and for people who work in that issue because in a tooth we were pulling during this time in a two to three week period like everybody had to find out what that meant because it was so controversial everybody started talking about it and then every time the media had report on it they had to explain will really it means this and so suddenly probably more than half. The public got educated on. Oh here are these alternatives to public safety and without that controversial phrase. I just don't think that would have happened based on what you learn from this survey from your research. Do you anticipate. America will continue to be polarized for some time. Perhaps become even more polarized or are we do. You anticipate Us becoming less polarized in the next year or two. Just what does your spidey censor your research. Tell you yeah i think. I don't think we'll become. More polarized is is my gut..

"This is our body politic. I'm the creator and host farai. Today this week we take stock of the first hundred days of the biden harris administration. I a trip to washington. Dc congresswoman eleanor. Holmes norton has represented the district of columbia in the house for thirty years as a delegate from the district that is not a state. She doesn't have the right to vote for legislation on the house floor but that might change her colleagues in. The house voted a week ago in favor of making dc a state congresswoman norton. Welcome to our body politic. Thank you for having me looking over the three decades that you've been in congress what has changed powerfully for the better in terms of equity and what is still lagging behind. What what do you. How do you measure success. We certainly can look at what has been accomplished for women. And what has been accomplished for african americans as leaning in toward success we see for example more women in congress today say it still lags well behind the numbers you would expect as for african americans. I think once we saw black lives matter we understood that black people just would not take it anymore and they went after everything from the way. African americans are treated personally to getting statutes down that extolled the old confederacy so we are seeing the end of the tolerance racism in our country and yet of course there is a powerful resistance to that including white nationalist who marched on the capital on january six and there is the question of taxation without representation which is the rallying cry of many people who look at the status of the citizens of washington. Dc tell us about your relationship to the push for statehood and what it would mean for the residents of dc and for the nation at large. Well i've been in congress for decades pushing for statehood at actually when i first came to congress democrats are in power and i got an actual vote on statehood. A large number of those democrats were southern democrats in so i did not in fact get statehood in my first term. So the first time i got in the majority again i was able to get our dc statehood. Bill passed and i must say it is about a time. When you consider that dc residents pay the highest federal taxes per capita in the united states we think knowledge of that may account for why today fifty four percent of the american people support statehood for the people who live in their nation's capital. And so if you were to speak to a congressperson who you don't know well and make a case for dc statehood in simple terms. What would it be. I would tell them some of the things i think. They don't know for example that we have a budget that is larger than that of twelve states That we have a higher personal and gross domestic product than any state that they did know that that we have a bond rating greater than that of thirty five states. Anna words if anything. I think that the district is over qualified for statehood. And what about the racial dynamics of this moment in time around the demographics of washington washington used to be called chocolate city. Some still do but it has become increasingly mixed in there have been a loss of working class and middle class. Black home ownership as the city has gotten more expensive. What in addition to statehood would really help people who are working class residents of washington..

"The full. us senate is set to consider a major. Bipartisan water bill. That would update water infrastructure across the us arizona. Public radio's ryan hinds reports. The package includes funding for tribal drinking water projects. The thirty five billion dollar drinking water and wastewater infrastructure act is the first legislation to advance out of senate committee related to the biden harris administration sweeping infrastructure proposal it would invest in alternate water sources like desalination and storm and wastewater re-use across the country along with updating aging water infrastructure but one key component of the bill is the reauthorization of the indian reservation drinking water program. Decide senator mark. Kelly is a co-sponsor of the bill. Too many tribal communities lack access to running water and don't have wastewater infrastructure and the drought conditions. Made this worse. This fifty million dollars annually is going to help tribes complete these water projects. Every year kelly says in arizona alone. The program would fund ten tribal drinking water projects each year. It's estimated about a third of residence on the navajo nation. Lack water in their homes which has myriad negative impacts on local economies in public health.

Vaccine Distribution: An Equity Challenge

"Okay paying we are talking vaccine equity in the pandemic and just a quick note. We are focusing a just here in the united states for this episode. So let's start with some top line numbers three covid. Nineteen vaccines have been authorized for emergency. Use in the us one very recently. How many people have actually been vaccinated so far well. Since vaccine distribution started in mid december around fifty million people have gotten at least one dose of a covid nineteen vaccine that includes about twenty five million people who got into doses means they've been fully vaccinated with either the pfizer or madonna vaccines. And that's some real progress over the past few months. Still just around eight percent of the total. Us population has been fully vaccinated. So there's still a long way to go. yeah i mean. Do we have any demographics on who the people who got the vaccine are like. Do we have any data on race or ethnicity well. Last week i spent some time at a cdc conference which was online and a bunch of public officials talked about it including dr marcela nunez smith who we heard from earlier. People of color are getting vaccinated rates below their representation in the general population. We know these challenges reflect longstanding deeply rooted systemic rallies. But here's the thing. The data that she's talking about is still pretty limited. You know so far race. Nothing to see. Data have only been collected for about half of the shots given out. Wow only half the thought i mean. There's a little bit frustrating. That's that's not enough data. Yeah it's it's really not and the biden administration pointed this out themselves and they acknowledged that it's pretty abysmal. Doctor rachelle will lansky. She's head of the centers for disease control and prevention and she says the problem is coming from a couple of different directions. Individuals may choose not to report. It may not be required of or requested by providers and some providers as well as jurisdictions have restrictions on data sharing so some of these data gaps are due to the fact that we have inconsistent systems around data gathering. Which you know is something that has been in quite a bit with this pandemic. Yeah that's certainly part of it and there's reasons why people might not want to share their personal information about race ethnicity especially people of color you know. The federal government has a long history of exploiting and under serving minority communities and that extends to this day but now there are government officials saying that. It's up to them to try and convince people that it's important to give their information. Here's neurath shaw. Health official in the state of maine in public health. What gets measured gets managed and if we measure the right things then we will manage the right issues if we measure the wrong things. Then the did that we collect. That may not bear resemblance to current present. Elf challenges is actually what we will end up managing. Yeah so early. On in fact vaccine distribution the only metric that was available was the number of doses sent out in the number of doses administered which basically measured speed and so if the biden harris administration wants to achieve both and equity with axiom distribution. They're going to have to get more comprehensive data on race ethnicity to get a handle on the problem. Yeah i mean. I want to talk about what the biden administration is doing specifically to address this issue of a vaccine but first let's talk about some of the ways. The general rollout has put. Vulnerable communities added disadvantage. Because that's definitely happening. Yeah and to be honest. It's been hard for everyone including health reporters to keep up with the changes that are happening. Daily and weekly with axiom distribution. I mean every single state has its own rules about who qualifies and had a sign up. Obviously that confusion is compounded. If the information isn't coming to you in the language you speak or you don't have access to computers and email and even for people who may have read up on how to book an appointment. It's taken them hours to actually research in book one. So if you don't have time to figure that out and if you don't have access to transportation or time off work to get an appointment and was places you probably haven't been able to get vaccinated yet. Yeah i mean and that's when you know for sure that you want the vaccine. Exactly dr christian rumors. He's a physician and executive that family health centers of san diego. He points out that people also have questions that are very specific to their own circumstances and we want those answered before they feel like they can make an informed decision to actually get vaccinated. Here he is speaking to. My colleague yuki noguchi residency is not just one thing. And in many cases. They're very unique to their own situation. Like i just got treated for cancer. Or i'm on a certain medication or i've had an allergy in the past and those are questions that'll be answered most likely from talking one on one with a medical professional or some other trusted person. Which again if you're part of an underserved community is hard to access. If you don't have the time to seek out those answers it'll be much easier if the vaccines and the resources were coming directly to you right right okay. So ping what has the biden administration specifically announced or done to address vaccine equity so at that. Cdc conference. dr marcellina smith acknowledged that this is a huge issue. And it's not gonna be easily solved. Must attend the underlying social structures arborist as we look ahead to building resilience into our recovery. What we do believe now. Is that the way we get american vaccinating and the emphasis he placed reaching the hardest hit communities attached just as important as being the goals the number of people that's needed so their strategy to get to those goals basically amounts to increasing a couple of different things number one the number of vaccines available number two the number of people giving vaccines and number three. The number of places people can get vaccinated and specific to equity. They've launched a few fema supported mass vaccination sites. These are huge operations set up in stadiums and parking lots that are aiming to give at six thousand shots a day and they're putting some of these in places that score high on something called the social vulnerability right which is a cdc measurement of how vulnerable community is based on social factors like poverty for example. They've also started sending vaccines directly community health centers which serve around thirty million people over. All many whom are rural belong to minority groups or are low income and the centers can also offer outreach in different languages and support for signing up. I mean are they also leaning on non-medical sites to i mean like i know working with community leaders and partners be especially effective. Yeah well they're also talking about sending out that nation trucks to job sites and setting up clinics and local churches and high school gyms and ymca's those non-medical sites that you were talking about and these community clinics might not be serving thousands of people a day but they will make the vaccine available and convenient for people in those communities to get gosh so the vibe administration is really trying to take a both and approach. They're supporting mass vaccination sites to get a lot of people vaccinated quickly and they're also realizing that some people will take more time and more effort to reach so they're also trying to figure out ways to gather better data and target underserved areas. Okay so you know. Most of what we've been talking about today paying as the government is handling this which i would argue is the most important facet but i mean. Is there a sense of individual responsibility here. I know there are a bunch of stories out there about people line jumping or like going into communities outside their own to vaccines how we have all heard the stories and it's hard to say how much it's happening but it does make people feel like the system isn't working you know and what bioethicists have said to me is. That cheating happens for sure but it's probably not happening enough to undermine the system overall i mean. Is that all kind of a short term problem. I mean there's a huge demand right at this point and not enough supply but the hope is that you know in the coming weeks or months the situation will change as vaccine manufacturing and distribution ramp up even further right. Yeah and that's been the hope all along. I mean for weeks now. We've been hearing about a flood of vaccines that will be coming online in the near future. That will make it less. Cut throat to vaccine appointment and we're not there yet but there are some promising signs. The government has now ordered a total of six hundred million doses of pfizer in modern of vaccines to be delivered by the end of july. Which is enough to cover three hundred million people and that's more than all the adults in the us right right. Plus we've got the newly authorized. John jay vaccine which will eventually make a difference right and getting all these shots in urgent right now because we're kind of in a race between vaccinations and variants. Which means that. The more people protect right now. The fewer people will catch the virus and the fewer chances the virus will have to keep mutating in ways that might make it avai the vaccines and the treatments. We've developed so that's why it's still super super important to keep the other measures that prevent the virus from spreading double masking staying physically distant. You know we're all excited about vaccines but health. Experts are saying right now that in the middle of the vaccination campaign is not the time to let up our guard okay pingpong we appreciate you as always thank you for coming on the show things so much.

"biden harris administration" Discussed on KQED Radio

"Through Congress. We've also hit a tragic milestone. More than half a million people in the United States have died of covert 19. So far, the pandemic has hurt the lives and wallets of people of color. Especially hard so many of the rituals that help us cope that help us honor those we loved. Had been available to us. Final rites with family gathered around. Proper home going showers. Stories in love. That, of course, is President Joe Biden, speaking at a memorial held at the White House in the past week, 500 candles line the steps of the South Portico where, mere months ago, former President Donald Trump stood and tore his mask off after leaving the hospital, where he survived Cove it himself. We're going to continue delving into the ways this administration and the previous one handled the pandemic in episodes to come. The Biden Harris administration is grappling with how different members of the Democratic Party are staking out positions on a proposed increase to the minimum wage and on student loan forgiveness. Senator Elizabeth Warren has been a key voice advocating for policies that benefit lower and middle income Americans. She tells us how her positions are informed by her own experience growing up. And how that compares with the struggles of working families. Now, Senator Warren it is so great to have you with us. Oh, and I'm so glad to be here with you. So let's just jump right in with a bit of family history. You have talked about your early life as being on quote the ragged edge of the middle class. And you were the first in your family to graduate from college. I understand. What do you mean by the ragged edge of the middle class? You know if we were one of those families that so wanted to be middle class wanted to see ourselves this middle class, But we were also one of those families that had a lot of rough patches. And you know, my mama was borrowing. Money from my brother David, who had to paper route's s so that she could buy milk. Keep us through to make it to the end of the week always counted out every nickel. I still remember she used to scrounge around for change so she could buy a dollar's worth of gas. It was a family that Worked hard played by the rules. But we understood up close and personal. That isn't always enough to make it in America. Yeah, I certainly come from a background that is is very similar in a lot of ways. Um And There's an economist radical Balakrishnan, who has talked about the idea. What is an economy for? So if if she were opposing you that question What is an economy for? What would you say it is now and what should it be? I think what an economy should be for is to build opportunity. It's it's a chance. It's not doesn't mean everybody's going to end up in exactly the same place. But it is a chance that every child gets a chance that every person gets a chance. I think that's how we we ought to have an economy that works like that. But we don't and in fact It's not only that our economy works better for those at the top. It says That trend has been accelerating, You know, just going backwards. Talking about family after my daddy had a heart attack my mom Got a job at the Sears minimum wage job answering phones. Minimum wage job kept us alive. But here's the deal when I was a little girl, a minimum wage job in America with support a family of three It will cover the mortgage. The utilities, the food we know this Today. A minimum wage full time job in America. Well, not a mama and a baby out of poverty. The idea that minimum wage was what got you, at least in the cub. Under the ragged edge of the middle class. Uh, not anymore minimum wage A mama and baby and poverty. Think of it another way. Who is supporting someone right now? Toe work, minimum wage at Walmart erred and dishonor in place where they're asking people to work minimum wage And the answer is A chunk of that is being supported by the taxpayers. In other words, WalMart or Amazon gets to pocket more profits. And the way they do it is they hire at minimum wage, knowing that it won't support Family and that in fact that the stories long circulated that Wal Mart actually there were people who would just hand out your application for snap benefits for food for Medicaid. All of those were paid for by the taxpayers. With ups the minimum wage and that means taxpayers pay less. Families are more economically secure, and Wal Mart has to actually pay a wage. That put money in people's pockets enough that they can survive. Let's turn to the question of student loan forgiveness. President Biden was in a CNN town hall where he was asked about forgiveness at a $50,000 level, and he said directly, I will not make that happen. What's your perspective on the issue and What you're championing. Is that 43 million Americans today who are shouldering about $1.5 trillion of student loan debt. These folks need relief about 40% of them. Don't have a college diploma is there folks who tried and God bless him, But life happens. You know, they Have babies. Somebody got sick. They lost a job. The commute was too hard and they weren't able to finish so they're trying to manage. Student loan payment on what a high school graduate makes and for people of color for African Americans. The student loan debt problem is even worse. Black students have to borrow more money to go to school, borrow more money, whether in school and have a harder time paying when they get out of school. Same thing is also true for Latin ex students. This is a racial justice issue. It is an economic justice issue and It's a get our economy going issue because all of these young people who are struggling with student loan debt, that's money that they could put back into the economy. It's money they could use. Buy homes. It's money they could use to start small businesses. This is a win win. When if we cancel out $15,000 of student loan debt. You mentioned that this is a racial justice issue, and Heather McGhee, the author of the Some of us is going to come on our show at a later date, And she's essentially made an argument that basically, um When White Americans benefit from government policy. It's a lot easier to get past than when a multiracial group of Americans do it. So you had, you know a lot more support for Educational costs when it was a much larger proportion of white Americans getting educated. Do you believe that race plays into the math in that way over educational debt? Look at the data are just unmistakable. Here. Race has played into every system in America and education in housing. And wealth in criminal justice. What's so important right now on student loan debt is that the president of the United States by himself, not You know, let's get people in Congress and so on by himself with the stroke of a pen could close the black white wealth gap among those with student loan debt. 25 points. That would just be historic. And you know for my my last question. I just wanna ask about where we go from here. In terms of the responsibility of the Finance sector. You proposed the creation of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. How do you view the role of something like consumer protection and scrutiny of the financial industry? As we Hopefully one day exit the pandemic there a lot of people whose lives have been completely upended..

Keeping Up The Fight For Women's Health Care

"Walker matt brown girls to never episode of the brown roles to politics and today we are joined by dr mirage shaw with plan. Parenthood and we are going to talk about women's health. Care something that is important to all of us and something that's going to be even more important. Under the biden harris administration. We're going to dive into some of the things that we can expect over the first one hundred days so let's get started. Dr shaw thank you so much for joining us. Yeah thank you so much for having me excited to be here so i just want to know a little bit more about you. You're a fancy. Dr which is wonderful. What made you wanna go into this field. So i am a family medicine physician so i am trained to care for the basic needs. The healthcare needs of all people so women men trans nonbinary community so all people. I really narrowed my focus in to sexual and reproductive healthcare as well as gender affirming care for the trans. The nonbinary community. I'm currently the chief medical officer of planned parenthood economic where oversee ten of the health centers. That are just right outside of new york city Also on the board of women's health alliance from which is an independent abortion clinic where they have health centers in indiana in virginia. Men the few other places that are that are under served when it comes to abortion care though a lot of hats. Play a lot of roles But that is actually where i am. Most and most happy is providing direct patient. Care as well as on lending my voice in a broader in the broader narrative. Around these issues. Thank you so much for everything that you do. We know it so important in. Was there anything in particular that really drew you to want to work for planned parenthood I mean it is an organization that i have always looked up to. It's actually where. I trained in abortion care when i was a resident and i was always so drawn to the idea. This organization not only provide care. Without apology i really just love. The this organization provides not only abortion care but prenatal care and full spectrum sexual reproductive healthcare contraception sti screening for hiv prevention the full spectrum end because the work that the planned. Parenthood does is unfortunately so politicized Planned parenthood has a large part of the organization is to do advocacy to fight for access and support around this work. Which which i you know. I just love in so like i said earlier. Not only do. I provide healthcare services. I also advocate as much as i can i love that advocacy piece. Because i feel it's so important when you're doing this work and is just already comes through from talking to you in the first few minutes just how dedicated you are to the work into the patients and been so politicized and we are entering the biden harris administration. And there's a lot of good food. That i personally feel that can be done for women's health care in on his first day. We saw a stack of executive orders on an president. Biden's desk just absolutely loves saying that and for me it was just a reminder about how so many people can change our lives with a swipe of a pen and how it does matter who we have in office by the people like you who we have you know behind the scenes who are making sure that the knowledge is out there that they're advocating properly. So what are some of the things that with them ministration. Would you like to see especially just coming off of the past. Four years where we're seeing that women are the hardest hit by the economy the pandemic there's just so much at stake for women right now yes women and you know other people with the uterus are definitely the ones who feel the most oppression when it comes to their their basic needs whether it be childcare whether it be accessing contraception rather be building are planning their families and we saw this firsthand in the last four years so i agree i mean i think that a lot of people have a lot of hope for what's to come with this new administration and feeling like you know we can finally take a deep breath the end just signed relief. I will say we have a lot of work to do.

Biden signs order to ramp up refugee admissions and plans to allocate 125,000 spots next fiscal year

"On immigration, another area where reality does not matter. Right. Reality is not something that the Democrats feel bound by. They have a vision. They have a have a version of the world around them that they're dedicated to. Nothing can get in the way of that. Nothing can be more important than that. Including what actually is going on That zip that goes without saying you have Biden here. He's talking about. Refugee admissions. Raising this to 125,000 persons. Just this just came up. I mean the borders effectively open now, folks, and we'll get into that in a moment. But here's bite and play five. I'm approving an executive order to begin the hard work of restoring our refugee admissions program help meet the unprecedented global need. It's going to take time to rebuild what has been so badly damaged, but that's precisely what we're going to do. This executive order position us to be able to raise the refugee admissions back up to 125,000 persons for the first full fiscal year, the Biden Harris administration Raising refugee admissions. Now how this is all define. I mean with these things, it's always about the actual implementation. And when you say raising refugee admissions, Okay, well, You have how many people at the southern border claiming asylum, which is a version? Of refugee status. These are very similar things. Right. A asylum and asylum. E. I believe shows up. And asks for what is effectively refugee status. A refugee applies from abroad from a place to come to the states. In order to get that that status. So you know, a person who request asylum in United States is an asylum person request protection while still overseas and then has given permission and of the U. S. Is a refugee. So that's there's a procedural difference here, but what they've already done is created a massive flow of false asylum seekers to our southern border. We've run this experiment. As I like to say. We've already gone through this. We have seen the results. People from Central America were passing through Mexico and they were saying things that were not true in order to get into America, so they could then not show up for their asylum hearing. They would just stay. It was a back door entry point in the United States and people who say that what they're doing is not illegal. Don't know what the heck they're talking about. It is illegal. Not showing up for the court date is illegal and the initial entry because they weren't even going through. The ports of entry. They were surrendering at the border. It is, um it is an illegal act believe or not, you just step across the US Mexico border that is a violation of federal law. So when you step across the was you can do in places Still, we don't have a wall from sea to sea. I hate to be the one to tell everybody that when when you do that you have broken the law. And people do that, so that they can skip the port of entry waiting line and just right away and to the United States claim asylum past the credible fear standard. And then they bought by saying what they've been coached to say, and then they stay in the country. But this makes people feel good Liberals feel good. I'm taking more refugees and taking more asylum seeker doesn't matter if they're gaming. The system doesn't matter if they're breaking our laws. This allows people who are not virtuous to feel virtuous. Because they don't have to deal with the consequences of these policies. And you're going to see a lot of that with Biden on immigration on pretty much everything that this administration is planning on doing.

Black and Latino New Yorkers Trail White Residents in Vaccine Rollout, New York

"Sharon W. N. Y. C. And since the earliest days of the pandemic, as you know, black and Latino people in New York City have died from covert 19 at twice the rate of White New Yorkers. Now is vaccines become available. Those communities that have been hit the hardest are not getting prioritized in a rollout system that seems to be giving an advantage to groups that skew whiter and wealthier. According to City data released over the weekend, three white residents received a covert 19 vaccine for every black or Latino person in the city. So more specifics. White people make up 32% of the city's population. Would have received 48% of vaccine doses. Well, Latino residents make up 29% of New York City residents, They comprise only 15% of vaccine takers. The black community accounts for a quarter of the city. But their vaccination wait is nearly 11%. The data is incomplete because a large portion of non city run vaccination sites and failed to report vaccinations by race, But public health experts say that this data that we have shows a definite and concerning trend that is being repeated in much of the country. With me now is City Council member Mark Levin. He chairs the council's Health committee and is calling on the city to make specific changes to its vaccine rollout. And we also have doctor who J. Blackstock. She has some of you know, from her appearances on this show and elsewhere, is an emergency medicine physician, founder and CEO of advancing Health Equity and Yahoonews Medical contributor. She has suggestions for the Biden Harris administration to fix an excellent equities in the distribution system. At the national level. Welcome back to WN my see both of you. Hi, Good morning. Brand. Thank you so much Frying and council member for listeners who did not hear the mayor's press conference on this over the weekend. Can you further elaborate on the data that was released? I know you and others. I've been calling for its release for weeks. Well, we We have an incomplete picture. Brian. I want to stress that we only got a piece of the data which illuminates inequality, but it does offer race and ethnicity breakdowns and you ran through them. White New Yorkers are getting vaccinated at triple the rate. Of African American Latino New Yorkers. Really, That's the discrepancy. That's even greater than some of the other covert inequality that we've been seeing in this crisis. But we're still lacking something really fundamental. We have no zip code level data. Which could compare the Upper East Side to the South Bronx, Um, another critical view of inequality. It's really perplexing that it hasn't been released yet. Because the day that the data is there. The city collects addresses on everyone in vaccinate, so we're still fighting for more transparency. It's not too soon. To get beyond hand breaking ringing and 0.2 solutions. We need to fix this. We need a new Web registration system that stop blocking out people who don't have tech savvy or English language skills. We need to stop. Of crowding out people in vaccination sites and low income neighborhoods who are competing against people generally white, middle and upper income people from all over the region. We can do that. By having prioritization and scheduling for local neighborhoods at their vaccine site. We need to change eligibility and away that fixes the era of committing so many critical groups like people who deliver food people who work in taxis in restaurants, nail salons, people who are who are incarcerated. And finally find we have toe get out of City facilities and go door to door. We have to be going door to door. Vaccinate. We actually can't deliver the vaccine door to door for people who are homebound. Other states are doing this and also simply to make appointments for people who are not able to Get onto a home computer. Let's go door to door with ipads and sign people up. This problem can be addressed and we need to not just talk about it. We need serious action. To reboot our equity strategy for

Vaccines, Trust, and the Global Pandemic

"Welcome back brown roles. this is a shanty. The host of the brown rose guy to politics podcast anti day. We are continuing our conversations with planned parenthood about the first one hundred days of the biden harris administration and we are joined by another amazing woman. Who's a part of the planned parenthood. It's family doctor krishna. Hadja who is the vice president of quality care and health equity doctor. Thank you so much for joining us. Today i'm super glad to be here. Ashanti thank you. I love having doctors on the podcast. Thank you planned parenthood. It makes me feel so fancy. Can you tell us a little bit about your career path. Went you wanna be a doctor. What made you wanna focus on women's healthcare. And what brought you to planned. parenthood sure. I am an adolescent medicine. Doctor cells start with that. Which means that. I am a person who specializes in taking care of teenagers. And i think i was drawn to that because first of all teenagers are fascinating there. At a very interesting time in life we know with so many things going on socially emotionally and physically and they think i. i'm also very drawn to the intersections. Between people's health and other aspects of their life and in adolescent medicine those things are just really at the forefront and those include things like education and policies that impact on the people's access to care and information. Those are all the same things that i that really drew me to planned. Parenthood as an organization because our organization has those pillars of care education research and advocacy. And so for me. You can't have health without any of those four in so just a tremendous opportunity to work for an organization that that really leans into all of those. You agree organization. Let's get to talking about the first one hundred days of the biden harris administration is only been a couple of days but they have been doing a what we saw the huge stack of executive orders. That president biden signed. And even before they took office they talked a lot about how cove it and the pandemic. And we know that it's absolutely in the forefront of what are going to be focusing on the first one hundred days and we've seen so much activity on it in the first days it's really hard to keep up. So can you tell us a little bit about where we are at with the federal rollout of a vaccine. And what are the things that you think will see within the next few weeks. Yes there really has been a lot of activity and as someone who is a clinician and a public health person. I am just so thankful. I'm an and as a scientist. I'm just so grateful that they are coming in to this. Knowing how critical this is to everything that's going on in our country and really leading with experts and really bringing science to bear. I think the fact that they have had to do so much in the few days that they've had shows how much was not done before. That should have been done over this past year. And i think as someone who has worked on our response to covid as an organization both at our national office as well as across our affiliates. I can say that this this year has just been extremely disappointing in terms of the support. That people have had for what was needed in this pandemic in terms of the vaccine. You know one of the things is obviously. We are all very excited to have a vaccine for this this disease. And it's vitally important because so many people have died and we need to provide more people from dying at the same time. This pandemic has clearly shown us that you know health is going beyond what is happening in clinical care and so many inequities in our society show up in health outcomes in how this pandemic has really affected. People in that same thing is true with regard to how this vaccine is rolling out and how people are going to accept it. And so i think there's a lot of promise in still a lot of work to come with regard to the vaccine rollout. India mentioned your work with helping planned parenthood by the pandemic. It was just so important last year. We're now entering the second year of the pandemic to have organizations like planned parenthood that we could trust because you cannot trust anything unfortunately that was coming out of the administration. So what are some ways that planned. Parenthood has worked and will work to help. Come at the pandemic. thank you for that. I think i mentioned earlier about why. I was drawn to the organization of planned parenthood because of the multiple aspects of our mission. And i think at the foundation. We truly believe that people need to have the best evidence based scientific information and care and access in order to be able to live their healthiest lives and that is really how we have approached the pandemic as well. Certainly we know that the care that is provided at planned. Parenthood health centres is essential to people and is time sensitive and so from the beginning. We have worked really hard to make sure that all of our affiliates have access to the highest quality of information to make decisions all of our affiliates have taken steps to ensure that their health centers are safe places to work in to come in to be seen as a patient. We also had a lot of work to support our affiliates to transition care where possible to virtual care. This was work that had started. Before the pandemic in really the pandemic made it a necessity to accelerate that work and so we have affiliates that have really leaned in and just even more built out their capacity to meet people where they are in ways during this time because we know that people still need their birth control people still need abortions people still need to get tested for media or hiv. The can't be put off for a pandemic when this whole situation started. I don't think any of us thought that we would be here a yearly. Either still at home. And that's extremely disappointing. But regardless of people's healthcare couldn't wait and so our affiliates i. it's just been amazing to see how hard they have worked to make sure that their patients could continue to get the care. They need during this really difficult time.

"We just lived through one heck of a week complete with marching bands and that of course the howard university marching band welcoming the new vice president their alum kamla harris vice president of the united states of america and boy so much else happening accusations of a rigged elections historic siege of the capital. And this week. Of course monumental no matter what joe biden and kamla harrison become the next president and vice president of the united states that i will well and faithfully the duties of the office on which i am about to the duties of the office upon which i am about. Of course on inauguration day. I had to go out there in the streets to ask people what it was like frankly. The streets were nearly empty because of the violence at the capital on the sixth dozens of square blocks of the city. Were locked down tight and there were no personal vehicles. Permitted my conversation with master sergeant. George roche a public information officer for the national guard happened at a key moment. We have approximately twenty three hundred. Pennsylvania guardsmen here. Oh yeah wow. let's one he probably yep bitter. That was marine one. The president's helicopter flying him out of washington. Dc two hours ahead of the inauguration and this is all about a peaceful transition you know the passing the baton as the master. Sergeant said it was a peaceful transition of power but it certainly wasn't a traditional one for more than a century. Every president has gone to the inauguration of his successor acknowledging the new leader. That didn't happen this time. We've got more interviews from inauguration. Day and fresh analysis on sip in the political t with aaron hanes ingest morales for keto stay tuned for that i the congressional leader known for reclaiming time the inimitable representative maxine waters when trump supporters stormed the us capitol security urged lawmakers to follow them to a secure location in the building. Most of them did but Maxine waters stayed her own office where she felt. She and her team would be safer. We spoke to her a week. After the insurrection waters has represented part of los angeles in congress for thirty years including as a senior member of the black congressional caucus which he used to chair congresswoman waters. Thank you so much for joining me. On our body politic. I'm delighted to be with you as been such a long time since i've seen you and talk to you so thank you for getting me on today. Oh absolutely yeah. I fondly remember You know getting together back. When i lived in los angeles and The whole world has changed and yet some things haven't like the persistence of white supremacy. I'm just going to lay that on the table How do you process this moment in history and what we need to do to move ahead. I'm gonna get into the more immediate political questions but just on the big picture. What are we looking at. Well you know. I think it's important that number one. We continued our work in a certifying the electoral votes that had come from all of the state even after the attack on the capital and the presence of the domestic terrorists in our chambers etc etc and. I think that was a very good Is sent a signal of that. We were not going to be intimidated that we were not going to stop our work. And so Bets how with all of this we've got work to do and it's an important time in the history of this country and we cannot backup. We have to move forward and do what is needed to be done to protect democracy. What do you think of what was widely suspected and now seems to be becoming clearer that there were members of the capitol police and other law enforcement agencies who may have been sympathizers or aiders in a better is here. What do we do about You know the the distinct possibility of infiltration of government branches by active white supremacists. Well you know one is a thing said i know You know just being. An african american woman is that our society has systemic racism. And whether we're dealing with the health systems are with police departments are with you. Know the criminal justice system in general That we are always in a position where they are those who hold those. Physicians are racists and Even though we have to depend on them for security are for you know healthcare for education of that we have people who are operating in all of our systems were not in our best interest so this is something that we know happened and i was not surprised disappointed but not surprised that we were learning that there was some who had joined in a with of this invasion of these democratic. I mean these these domestic terrorists and so yes that is being at. That is being investigated. We're gonna have a deep investigation into everything that took place. I don't know if you know. I've been telling the press. I met with the capitol hill police chief days before the invasion and i talked with him for one hour on the telephone and assured on every question that i ask that they were in control of that they knew what they were doing and so it is a horrible experience. It is a daunting experience. It is one that you know The united states of america is not expected to be in this position by other nations Who thought for sure of that. The capital was well secured and that this could not happen but it did. The vast majority of republicans have not supported impeachment What options does that leave you and your party. The whole idea is not to act based on what we think they will do. A won't do the most important thing for us is to act to show that we're going to fight to hold him and them and that we're going to send a message out there to the american public that we're not backing away that we think that this is the worst president in the history of this country He has been divisive He has been a deplorable president. And that we're gonna fight to change the direction of this country with biden in harris. We've seen a lot. I mean it feels like we've lived several years just in the past few weeks and we've seen georgia Go for the democrats twice once in the presidential election and once in the special senate elections and stacey abrams and the new georgia coalition and many other. Say who we interviewed from the new georgia coalition. Many others made that.

Chicago Residents Could Take Another Year and a Half to Vaccinate at Current Rate, Lightfoot Says

"As the covid nineteen pandemic continues to overwhelm communities across the united states the latest forecast from the cdc predict a dire situation in the weeks ahead the nationwide death toll hovers at about four hundred thousand a grim milestone. That's close to surpassing the number of americans that died during all of world war two. The vaccine roll out that began at the end of last year. Were supposed to offer relief. But so far vaccine distribution has seen major delays in most parts of the country. And that's something. The biden harris administration says they plan to address. Here's president elect joe biden last week. We're gonna make sure state and local officials know how much supply they'll be getting and when they can expect to get it so they can plan right now. We're hearing that. They can't plan because they don't know how much supply vaccines they can expect and what timeframe that stops were office. We've been checking in with local leaders. Nationwide about all this and today we go to chicago. Where vaccine eligibility has been expanded beyond healthcare workers in long term care residents to anyone over sixty five who lives or works in the city but at the moment chicago's roll out has been so slow that the city's mayor lori lightfoot says it will take a year and a half to vaccinate the entire city unless the process is dramatically sped up to get a better sense of what's causing chicago's delays and how the city is planning to improve its vaccination process going forward. I got mayor lightfoot on the line this is just a a a very basic issue of supply. We do not have enough vaccine from the federal government. We are dependent upon them not surprisingly to get the vaccine. In every week that we've been up and had our infrastructure clicking into gear we've got less first doses instead of more fo- sauces. That is fundamentally a problem. I've been very outspoken. About this issue. I will continue to be as the change of administration comes into into play. But we simply don't have enough. I does vaccines and it's holding us back and our ability to get vaccines out to those people who are ready willing Enabling enthusiastic about vaccine. We've been talking to mayors across the country Mayor lightfoot about what they need from a state and or federal officials is there something specific. You said you need more vaccine. Are there any other things that you need For the city of chicago from the state or the federal government to move this process along more smoothly. No we're we're fortunate enough to Get direct supply From the federal government. The one thing i will say about the state is we've identified for them that because healthcare workers in chicago also live elsewhere. We've also been giving vaccine to a fair number of suburban residents which is fine but that means we need to have backstop from the state in the county and i think we will get there but fundamentally in addition to getting more first dose vaccines we also need additional resources of from the federal government to make sure that the infrastructure that we put in place has the resources it needs to be successful. We need more digital resources for staffing. And as we expand into a more fixed sites across the city looking at mobile sites we just need more resources from the federal government they had not allocated enough even with the stimulus. Bill that passed at the end of december more needs to be done and i think the incoming biden administration recognizes that necessity mayor lightfoot. You mentioned vaccine skepticism. As being another hurdle that the city is facing in terms of getting people vaccinated and we know that particularly for black and latino populations that history of racism within the medical community has also spurred concerns. Is there anything. The city is doing or do to combat that skepticism in those communities particularly. Yeah we'll look skepticism. Unfortunately is widespread across the country. But what we started to do before we even got the first dose which a really lean into our trusted community stakeholders up in the black and latinx his community that we formed partnerships with this entire past year a since the pandemic came to chicago. We got a great network of partners at the local level through. F q eight. Abc's but also other stakeholders but primarily what we're looking to is black and let necks healthcare workers. Doctors nurses pharmacists. Those folks are really going to be. I think the critical ambassadors as we continue to go hyper local into these communities if they if people see people who look like them speak their language getting the vaccine and explaining why it's important that's gonna make a substantial difference and so we're leaning into those networks. Those trusted community

"Back in november latina and latino voters helped deliver the presidency to joe biden in key swing states like georgia and especially arizona. Let the next. Voters helped turn former red states. Blue and during the campaign biden made a long list of commitments to our communities on day. One i'm sending to the united states. Congress a immigration bill. We're gonna find those kids. We're going to unite them with their parents. The opening school safely will be a national priority for the biden harris administration. Reverse trump's rollbacks of one hunter public health and environmental rules biden has said he'll invest in education and healthcare for letting us he said he'll stop border wall construction and that he'll work with congress to create a path to citizenship for undocumented people but in also said he'll crackdown pollution in communities of color and reduce incarceration so in the lead up to the inauguration that usa reached out to young denness and latinos around the country to your what promises they're hoping biden will keep and what they want biden to do that he hasn't committed to yet plus we're going to speak with these young people about how the changes they wanna see would actually impact their own lives. We're going to start this very non. Comprehensive survey by speaking with virginia. Blasio's virginia's a ninth generation daytona who up near a city on the texas mexico border were in the south texas. Brush country so a lot of trees and prickly pear cactus virginia is also an environmental science and policy consultant that usa producer. Scarsi spoke with virginia. And she's going to pick up the story from here. Virginia lives in a rural area on a fourth generation. Cattle ranch that been her family of for close to one hundred and twenty years. We inherited it from my great uncle. Who was a grand champion calf roper. During the great depression he traveled the radio circuit with his brother. You know they were fortunate enough to be born into families that had a lot of land and so they were able to run cattle and support their families. That way and my dad was enamored with that history of cowboy culture. He virginia and her brother on the land. She remembers running around as a little kid watching her. Dad moved these huge cows from field to field and she thinks growing up this way set the foundation for a love of nature that eventually led her to go to grad school to study climate change. And that's where she was. When in two thousand eleven he had still all the cattle on the ranch because the drought guy particularly bad and There was a national study. That came out shortly after that drought showing bet Climate change me the heat waves longer and temperatures more intense that year and so we know that climate change has already been impacting us. There had always been droughts in south texas though. Virginia says they got worse and worse over time. It meant the grass wouldn't grow. Which meant virginia's dad had to start buying a lot of food to keep his cattle alive so much so that he wasn't making money off his ranch anymore. You know it's kind of funny. Because i was always kinda hassling. My dad was like dad counts. Produce methane and methane is really bad for the climate but when it came to the point where he had to sell them because he realized a drought was so bad. It put things into a different perspective for me. Because i realized that he really didn't have a choice. I realized that we had kind of gotten into this plane. With climate change where it wasn't theoretical. It wasn't something far off in the future that could happen. It was it was happening now

"Kids and gun parts ordering if you all see that that happening go. Stuns are terrifying. I just want to pause for a moment. You know and again us at the moment that we're in right now. The trace did some really interesting reporting finding that violence anti-government extremist groups are increasingly drawn to ghost guns guns that you can make an complete at home. That don't have a serial number on them so it's a. It's really scary problem that we have on the ghost gun piece. I'm actually really hopeful that this is an area where the biden harris administration may be able take meaningful action using their executive authority so there has been legislation introduced to ban go sons into kind of close the gap in the statute which is obviously always the preferred way to do these things however there is there is a proposal that that has been out there in the number of of gdp groups have endorsed which would provide for a rulemaking process that would reinterpret and the definition of firearm such that it would include these unfinished receivers that are being sold currently without any kind of serial number regulation and so you know one of the things that we are going to be urging the administration to consider is going down this road of doing a a rulemaking to try to quickly address this ghost gun problem while we continue to work on it in congress. I do think that that the ghost gun issue is one that i'm moderately optimistic. We could get bipartisan support. For and unfortunately the way that usually works is that there will be some kind of horrific tragedy that involves a particular kind of firearm. That will then ended. Give the the push that some recalcitrant lawmakers might need to take it seriously but but you know this is just the most recent example of how our laws like you know like you said have really just failed to keep up and we're always you know years behind where the industry is when it comes to trying to to keep up with our policies to make our communities safer so so i have i.

"These vote. Totals are always going to be tough right because if you look at where how we move how the we have a gun. Violence prevention in the house right and what it took to get there. The her role in mirrors are are no joke in the senate and that it was look that way. Regardless of how montana or south carolina drops you know whether or not we would get somebody like jamie harrison or pass you. Continue on with with lindsey graham. Regardless were that we're not looking for a simple majority in the senate right we have. We have to get to sixty at andre. Not fifty seven hundred with the way that the procedural filibuster works it will require compromising work bed that chelsea's discussing but also with the knowledge stat. Champions like mark are now being elected to the senate because their possession their positions at the politics overall are changing. Look at something like ryan fitzpatrick. Who is a republican. Who has taken strong stances on this time and the how all of those pieces are connected to show. Our issue at margin is is bipartisan and gains across the board. And we'll have to continue this conversation. But i i. It's just important history. Think about because even when people think about the strongest time in mouth prevention. You think about those early nineties where we are today is just. It's it's wholesale different. And i think that is really important to recognize. Actually add one more thing to note here. The nra is as vulnerable as it's ever been and so that's another dynamic that i think is really important and we're talking about both opportunities in congress to advance legislation as well as opportunities that the biden harris administration will have to act on using their executive authority and the nra over. The last few years has been becoming more and more of a paper tiger anyway. But i think you know this last year looking at the different losses. They're facing looking at the. They're vulnerable financial position. You know we're in a situation now where they are as weak as they've ever been. And so that is. That's an important piece of contacts when we're thinking about what this next year or two is going to look like a rudderless degree by chelsea like i mean that's part of as well right as as they're having an identity crisis in in that there are extreme factions that have taken over their overall message and their meter. Ship do not represent in large part the responsible law abiding gun owners that Reflected in support for universal background checks in a lot of the changes are being posed as well so yeah. I think it's important for us to make as well. I wondering if any of you think that the nra has an opportunity to bounce back here if sort of seeing it in decline. We'll take as you pointed out a different position. Hurry is certainly a wounded organization. And ironically if mostly got themselves to blame from rampant corruption. I mean unbelievably prolific graft influence peddling sweetheart deals led by wayne lapierre. Of course it has been the defacto head of the nra since the early nineteen nineties. He's been the recipient of tens of millions of dollars of just money from the nra and this was all spelled out in new york attorney. General's legal document those issued early this year. Why the new york trader jails office moved to in court to dismantle organization. That may not ultimately happen that way but they made a free strong case and in this past election cycle. The nra spent about two thirds as much money on president. Trump's campaign is they did for years ago and about a third is.

"Rights and us does that have any implications for gun rights eight or does it sort of exists outside of that area. It's not directly a matter of gun rights. Although supporters of that legislation argued that ineffective was because that that if the gun industry didn't have legal protections they ran the risk of being driven out of business litigation. But i don't think that really gets at the key concerned about the legislation that is certainly a law that a president biden can dismantle unilateral action. It can only be repealed by act of congress and that takes us right back to the composition of the new congress. We know the democrats will control the house of representatives by reduced number and that control of the senate. We don't yet know which way that's going to go. But in what in any eventuality the artie margins and both houses will be extremely narrow. That makes it more difficult. Even if the democrats win controllable houses the narratives of their margins or put tremendous pressure on swing members really in both political parties. And i think it would be extremely difficult to repeal bill outright given very narrow margin symbol houses partly. because they're going to be so many priorities coming up in the in the upcoming year. All of the issues of you know about an have been folding this past year but also because the waffle commerce arms hacked was the. Nra's top priority. They certainly would fight tooth and nail to preserve that legislation and fighting a defensive posture. Kind of politically is somewhat advantageous. I could see that law being repealed in the years to come but it doesn't seem particularly likely to me. That will probably see its repeal in the upcoming although it's not impossible yeah. I think that we as gdp at have some more work to do when it comes to making the case for why we need to repeal plaka and why why that law really is a significant barrier in holding the gun industry accountable and related why it's necessary to hold the industry accountable in order to reduce gun violence. Like i think that there's there's a lot of public education that we still need to. But i but i do think that we are starting to see more and more attention being focused on the gun industry which is hugely significant because for years and years and years the conversation around gun violence in about solutions to reduce gun. Violence is really focused on the demand. Side of the problem and the industry has really gotten away with escaping. Frankly any focus any attention. In terms of their role in manufacturing and supplying firearms that are the instrumentalities of of so much death. So i think plaka at a conversation about black is a huge piece of that. And i think you know i agree that i don't think this is a twenty twenty one victory but i do think that as we continue to build the case for why lack such law we are going to get there and i mean wh when you explain it to people explain the fact that this law gives the gun industry of of that no other consumer product industry enjoys you know that is deeply offensive and so as we continue to do more work messaging an and and persuading on this issue. I do think this is something that it will be something that we get in in the next couple of years..

"We did happened in spite of Joe Biden and his old boss. We cut taxes. They raised them. We slashed red tape. They piled on more mandates, and when we brought in good paying jobs, Biden and Obama sued US. I fought back and they gave up. Biden Harris administration would be much, much worse. Last time Joe's boss was Obama this time, it would be Pelosi, Sanders and the squad. Their vision for America is socialism, and we know that socialism has failed everywhere. They want to tell Americans had a live more to think they want a government takeover of health care. They want to ban fracking and kill millions of jobs. They want massive tax hikes on working families. Joe Biden and the Socialist Left would be a disaster for our economy. President Trump is leading a new era of opportunity. Before communist China gave us the Corona virus. We were breaking economic records left and right. The pandemic has set us back, but not for long. President Trump brought our economy back before and he will bring it back again. There's one more important area where I president is right. He knows that political correctness and cancel culture are dangerous and just plain wrong. In much of the Democratic Party. It's now fashionable to say that America is racist. That Is a lie. America is not a racist country..
