"Guide to global warming and environmentalism coming up in the five o'clock hour, and will Cain some perspective on what the left really wants to do to our country under the guise of environmentalism. But right now joining us, it's always a pleasure to have the chairman of the American conservative union, and therefore a big grand poobah of CPAC. One Matthew schlab, Mr. slap. Thanks for joining us, sir. Larry great to be with you. I'm always trying to get smaller. I meant not big in girth stature in stature and importance in fact, to that listen, I know a couple of weeks ago, there was all these rumors floating around that you might run for Senator in Kansas and stuff. And now, you know, good old secretary of state Pompeo is sort of, you know, get their floating his name. Can we just dismiss with all that? Will you please run for governor of Virginia match lap. We need you in Richmond. Wow. I I to say I don't know if I've ever seen a better example of karma in my life. Than the governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia talking about infanticide, executing babies as the president said in his state of the union next thing, you know, the people he went to medical medical school with him. They were so offended by statements. We're going to go look at the yearbook and bring up images of him in black face and away. We have gone to one of the most amazing political downfalls I've ever seen. Yeah. And it's not just north on. But certainly it starts there. People always asking these days who leaked that picture from the yearbook. Maybe it was Jesus, you know, in response to infanticide Bill. Well, where do you think things stand now as every prominent democratic except for Jim Moran in Virginia has insisted? And now today the Washington Post is insisted that Ralph Northam step down. If he does how does attorney general Mark herring survived considering he's got the exact same problem. Yeah. No. I don't see any of these gentlemen surviving. The interesting thing. Virginia's you know, Larry, it's a one term term limits on the governor. So you're kind of a lame duck. If you get elected. Yes. So I don't know what the governor thinks he's accomplishing just kind of hanging in there. It's a Republicans dream to see him try to fight to hold onto his office. And talking about the hypocrisy of all this you have to Lieutenant governor who calls upon the governor to step down. And then the governor the governor's political team seems to spread some some really rough accusations on only Senate governor. And and now you have the G who should be the person who would come into the office is guilty of the same thing. He said the governor should step down for it would be an interesting movie, maybe even a comedy if it wasn't so disgusting and tragic and really just shows the Crecy of of the Democrats rented Virginia, Matt I I've worked in the fictional end of the entertainment. Business. This script would get rejected. Nobody would believe it the way. This is transpired. I do want to get to the accusations against Lieutenant governor Fairfax in a moment because it is the most serious part of this story, but just sit here for a moment on Ralph Northam. I listen, I had you on quite a bit in two thousand seventeen to speak on behalf of Ed Gillespie and his campaign. And I think that you would agree that it was one of the most despicable dirtiest campaigns the north and people ran against Espy suggesting that he is in some way a racist. Given that context I'd love for you to sort of revisit that and talk about this this north of operation and how ugly that was knowing. Now what we know. Yeah. I mean, really there's almost no slurred that could be thrown at Republican these days because it's a unifier for the democrat and back during that campaign. There was this whole question about the ugliness of white nationalists protesting in Charlottesville, something none of us likes to see. And and and and the specter of the idea that people think all these issues should come down, and especially confederate leaders, etc. And isn't that I'd say everyone, even those of us who were strongly supporting Ed would say that, you know, the whole topic made him uncomfortable because you have such a decent human being he's more. Temperate and careful and he's a good, man. And the last thing he has his any animus and it just just distraught. That that nobody at the RTA or other places thought to kind of push back on north by. Looking at his past that it seems like it was just right there. A couple of steps away. Yeah. Well, you mentioned the are you think that's a lot of people are asking us, and, you know, people at the political operative level at it in in these circles, you think it was the G as a misstep you think it was the Gillespie campaigns misstep. I mean, we have a I think Republican politics is dominated by, you know, people talk about our consultant class, which is true. And you know, they kind of run to where they get remunerated the best and opposition research and understanding your opponent. Usually is not is not the place where you can make that ties of premium. And so I think, unfortunately, this is the blocking and tackling of politics. Yeah. We'll stay on the on the yearbook front. This all started with what they did to ROY Moore and did to himself, by the way. And so I think this is just a part of it. Now. There's a lot of people across the country who are calling their mothers seeing if the yearbooks are in the basement because they want to make sure. Rex happened. And they wanna make sure you know, what was might have been set in Jeff. As a child. I can come back and haunt you as an adult. Yeah. I lied makes. You wonder where the likes of Lee atwater are these days because you're right. It is blocking and tackling and Republicans are just neglecting opposition research. They better wake up, especially in the Hillary Clinton team does opposition research, and it turned into a full blown FBI investigation for crying out loud. That belongs in the hall of fame of opposition research. You you spend some money trying to come up with a political document against your opponent. And it turns into an international crisis. Yeah. Disgusting, but you have to give them credit for for colluding with the FBI to try to win a race. I guess. Yeah. I I've got plenty to say about the media's ignorance here or there willful ignorance in light of this stuff. And I'm gonna get to that in a few minutes, Matt. But while I've got you. I do want to now focus on Justin Fairfax and Lieutenant governor of Virginia and some pretty I mean, everyone's saying oh, gosh, you should be consistent in your principal. With regard to the Brett Cavanaugh Christine Blasi Ford situation, and this well, there are quite a few differences between the cavenaugh thing. And the Fairfax thing are there not. I think absolutely first of all the the the question of of with Cavanaugh was so ludicrous. And there was never really anybody to support that kind of behavior, and as, you know, both the ethics oversight board has looked at all these charges that said there was there truce to I think the one thing where there's some similarity. However is you know, what what an accusation is made. The person who's making the accusations should have the chance to to have the ability to come forward and explain what happened. And and so I think in this case, I think that needs to happen. That's what happened with judge Cavin, obviously, they did it on national television. And I think the same thing needs to happen here in Virginia. I also think I mean, listen the charges against capital let something that happened when they were teenagers a long long time ago. And as as serious as what was described is. It was frankly, not at all at the level of what we're seeing in this Fairfax allegation, which is just a full blown sexual assault. And also the woman making the accusations against Lieutenant governor. Fairfax is she she isn't very vague on details. Right. I mean, this is an incredibly detailed and. Thorough description of events that I'm seeing. Yeah. No. I think that's right. I think look I think it's I think when it comes to these types of things there is some truth that we ought to take our democrat and Republican hats off, and when a credible charges made. You know, we ought to listen to it. I think for what I heard from most women after they heard from misplaced Ford was they actually get find that. There was a lot of holes in what she was talking about. They didn't know if it was intentional or just because she went through other traumas. But you know, I heard that over and over again, I thought the most interesting about Boise Ford. Also with her own family, didn't go public inciting the letter of support for for which told me that they had their own concerns about whether or not her story was truthful, and I think that those types of indicators help fair minded voters understand who's telling the truth, and who isn't and I think that process has to go on a Virginia. But I don't see any way that that that that could accrue to the lead Lieutenant governor's ability to credibly become the next governor. I really do think I think it takes him off the field, and quite honestly, you should want to clear his name if he's innocent. And if he thought he needs to go away. So how does this unfolds now match slap? Because basically, you're saying that all three of them need to sort of go away, or at the very least you get their house in order before they think about doing the people's business of Regina. Now, my I put my partisan hat on which the partisan. I I could be honest about that the governor not stepping down. The is the greatest boost for Republicans in the Commonwealth. You could ever imagine. So politically, I'm fine with I guess to governor hanging in there. But I think you know, I do think that it's just disgusting that after he made those comments about infanticide, which to me were incredibly horrific. And then we find out he's a fraud on the question of race, which is also a problematic. He needs to go away. Now, whether he goes away because he resigned or he goes away to kick it because because he becomes a little smaller every day and his reputation is in shatters, and he becomes an asterisk in the history of Virginia as one of the least respected governors ever. If that's the course he wants to choose. I guess he has the right to choose that. But eventually, my guess is the legislature tries to take their own steps to remove him. And. And keeping your partisan hat on there. I'm a partisan right there with you match lab. Do you think it's actually better for Republicans right now that the north and stay right there through this election coming up this November as every seat it will be a up for grabs in the twenty nine thousand election in Virginia. You know, what's funny in the end, what you have a politician that is so wounded like the governor of Virginia is it is exceedingly beneficial to the opposition party every day. He stays in office. He makes all of these ridiculous ridiculous claims that he made against Ed Gillespie that Democrats cavalierly make against conservatives by calling them racist by saying they're fastest by saying that they're anti semitic all of these cavalier charges. It makes folks realize that there's tremendous hypocrisy behind so much about. So I agree with you. If he stays it also could be the greatest thing that happened matter of fact, I don't know how the Democrats. Get out of this Virginia. I've been the next person in line. The speaker of the house who is who happens to be a Republican. But as you said, we're heading right into another election in Virginia where we're going to determine these majorities. In the legislature? So there's a lot at stake in a state like Virginia that seemed to be on a fast track becoming completely blue. And I think people when they get to see what being blue means in terms of policy and hypocrisy in the fact that people are used to get their votes. They don't really believe believe what they say. I think it has gives Republicans a real chance to make the case in Virginia and other places that they need some good smart and attractive candidates to make that case match lap. And that's why once again, I am imploring you to make your announcement. Now that you will be running for governor of Virginia. Larry, you're just you know, I need to hire you to be my my career management. Yeah. That would help me tremendously. Maybe we could get you to think about doing something in Maryland. I think we know very well who your career manager. Yes. Yes, totally NC is a little busy actually to that end. I really I really you go. It's been two days now, but the folks in Mercedes shop there the communication shop and the whole team in the west wing must just be thrilled with that state of the union and how it went over in this. I mean that was something else wasn't it. Yeah. Yeah. They I can tell in talking to people and talking to her that they were proud to work for the president. He put his best foot forward. The words matter. The idea that we're going to stand up against socialism, really rang true to the American people America, the idea of America and the experience of America, and the ideas of Karl Marx, and Mr. Ingles and Stalin..

I made that color is is that like that. Then you know, his his features. I, you know, it's just obvious. It's as obvious as the day is long, but Democrats will pull out all the stops. They'll try any trick. They will offer any irrational explanation. Just to muddy the waters, they they love muddying the waters. They're very good at it. And and you raise absurd questions and absurd possibilities. No. That's really a black guy. You can tell because his hand is black. Well, that's not really as that very convincing. And again, you saw those pants Sharon, those those plaid pants, no self respecting black, man. I don't recall seeing.

You can go to Gonda you won't find people that color, right? Yeah. Everybody knows that except liberals. It's just so much hypocrisy. It's just like, you know, we got the what they like they they can do things from twenty years ago, and all is forgiven. But when you gotta pie, although they still are and always will be the same.

And her memory ends after she walked outside and was standing out in the street or on the sidewalk outside of the party after this alleged incident. She doesn't remember how she got home.

It's six minutes after five this is Kay Kiwi. Public radio. This is all things considered from NPR news. I'm Michelle Martin. We're going to start the program today with the latest on the nomination of supreme court hopeful Brett Cavanaugh Christine Blasi for the woman who has accused him of sexually assaulting her. Within three decades ago has agreed to testify publicly this coming week. She's scheduled to appear before the Senate Judiciary committee on Thursday morning. Cavenaugh has strongly denied the allegation and is also expected to appear. This could be a critical moment for Kavanagh's nomination. And it could also be moment with political reverberations for both major parties just forty days before the midterm elections in November NPR's congressional reporter Kelsey Snell has been following all of this. And she's with us now. Kelsey, welcome. Thanks so much for being with us. Thank you. So now Ford's attorneys say they are still negotiating some of the details of her appearance. What are they agreed to so far? Yeah, they have agreed that both Cavanaugh and Ford will appear, but they will not be in the room at the same time. And they've also agreed to limited press access and a smaller here room that they say will kind of help manage the spectacle that they saw in the earlier part of his confirmation process. They also want to give breaks. So that Ford if she this is expected to be a really emotional time for her. And so the committee has agreed to give her break says she needs and they've agreed with equal time to every Senator who wants to talk for also getting heightened security because both cavenaugh and Ford happy receiving death threats. It looks like there won't be other witnesses which is kind of a big bone of contention at this point Democrats wanted to call Mark judge who someone who is identified as being in the room when the attack happened back in the nineteen eighties Ford's attorneys say he wasn't subpoenaed. And Republicans are also circulating emails from other alleged witnesses who say they weren't aware of the attack. Even though they were named in a letter. Neither side will get to hear from those people, which is creating what democrat. That's are calling kind of a he said she said situation. Now, I think many people who've been following this might remember that this comes after some days of back and forth between committee Republicans and for its attorneys. Do we have any sense of what they were talking about for? So what took so long? Yeah. They've been negotiating over some pretty crucial details, according to an Email exchange that we obtained earlier today. Some parts seemed to still be unresolved, but they seem fairly minor in the grand scheme of things. Perhaps the most contentious issue, though has been a fight over who would question Ford. Her attorneys wanted just to be senators but Grassley staff ended their Email today saying the issue is non-negotiable and witnesses. Don't get to choose who asks the questions. Well, it just sounds like from what you're describing. This could be a fairly arduous day was senators question, both Ford and Cavanaugh. And it's obviously, I think deeply political. So how are both sides handling how the two parties handling this? Yeah. And it's it's it's one of those situations where it's become a partisan infighting, and it's been like that for some time. But the the the issue of the allegations is really driven the two parties apart as you mentioned will be happening less than a month and a half before the election and Republicans wanted his Amish in confirmation to be a part of like the big final pitch to voters about how successful they've been. But now it's become really divisive. And they're onto the defensive Democrats are teeing up situation where they'll hold Republicans accountable for how they behave in this hearing. That's NPR's. Kelsey snell. Kelsey, thank you. Thank you so much. We'd like to go back now to the situation that comes closest to this in recent memory that would be in one thousand nine hundred ninety one when Anita hill was summoned by the Senate Judiciary committee to testify about allegations of sexual harassment by then supreme court nominee Clarence Thomas. Those hearings riveted the nation. There were other witnesses who spoke on her behalf and on behalf of Clarence Thomas. But not everybody who wanted to was called by the committee chairman, the democratic Senator Joe Biden, one of the people who wanted to testify, but was not called what Sakari Hartnett like Anita hill. She'd worked for Clarence Thomas at the Equal Employment Opportunity commission, she wound up submitting a sworn affidavit and Sakari and is with us. Now. Welcome. Thank you so much for joining us. Hello, let me just clarify that you worked at the EEOC from nineteen eighty five to nineteen Eighty-six. You never met in need a hill. You didn't overlap with her at the agency. What prompted you to send a letter to the committee about your experience and to offer to testify. Well, I worked in the same position that Anita hill worked in as a special. Assistant to the chairman in the chairman's office and often times I saw people come in and out of the chairman's office. So when I looked at what was happening to Anita hill. It was unconscionable to see the way that she was being treated by the committee. And I knew that what she was saying was true because I observed some of those very same situations myself. So let me just paraphrase from the sworn affidavit that you said you said you were not claiming to be a victim of sexual harassment. But you wanted to testify about sexualizing atmosphere that you observe we you said that young black women in particular were quote being inspected and auditioned as a female, but why did you feel that that added to the understanding of the events because you're saying you did not have specific knowledge of their interactions. What I wanted to do was corroborate. The fact that Anita hill like so many other young females at the commission would be an audition by Clarence for whatever purpose. He will call them into his office in particular with me Clarence expected me to be available to him every morning and for lunch, and I would run down to a friend of mine's office and hide just to avoid Vince situation with Clarence where I would have uncomfortable conversations. What do you think you weren't called to testify? Did they ever say anything to you? Or do you have any sense of why you were not call? I have no idea. My letter was not solicited a met with the dean of law school. We drafted the letter and submitted it to the Senate Judiciary committee. There was some talk about the fact that certain people would be called to testify, and I agree to do that. And I did it reluctantly I didn't really want to be thrown into the public at Mus fear anymore than anyone else. But I felt it was necessary to say that because that position is very important position. As position that affects the lives of all of us. Were you glad that you spoke up when you did. Are you sorry that you spoke up when you did on? No, I have no regrets about speaking up. When I did. I mean, there have been repercussions in terms of my employment in terms of law firms will want to be associated with someone who had a history of making a statement against a supreme court Justice, by the mere fact that some of their their cases could possibly go before the supreme court. It did have somewhat of a negative impact on my professional career. But I've always tried to live on the rights out of Justice. Now, I may not have always succeeded, but I've always tried and I thought that that was really important to make the statement on behalf of Anita hill before we let you go Christine quasi Ford's lawyers say she will testify, but how do you hope the Senate Judiciary committee will proceed? Well, Michelle is, you know, I'm an attorney in a court of law the way that you prove a case is you present evidence. And if you have two parties, both alleging different things, you call witnesses, and you call witnesses to weigh the evidence, professor Ford is someone who does not have any legal experience. Judge Cavanaugh has a lot of legal experience. So I think it's really necessary to have additional evidence to support the position of Cavanaugh. And or to support the position of professor for that is Sakari Hartnett. She worked as a special assistant to Clarence Thomas at the EEOC from nineteen eighty five to nineteen eighty six and she was kind of to join us in our studios in Washington, DC Sakari, and thanks so much for joining us. You're welcome here. We think it's important to point out that Clarence Thomas strongly denied and need a hills allegations, he denounced the hearings as a quote, unquote, high tech lynching, and as you probably know he went on to be confirmed. World leaders are converging on midtown Manhattan for the annual UN general assembly high level debate, you can expect to hear a lot about America's role in the world and the Trump era. A key buzzword will be sovereignty as NPR's. Michelle Kellerman reports Trump administration officials haven't shied away from their strongly held beliefs about the United Nations national security advisor, John Bolden was even asked recently at the federalist society, why the US doesn't just pull out he cited former UN ambassador Jeanne Kirkpatrick who was once asked the same question and she paused for moment in thought and said because it's not worth the trouble. The Trump administration has pulled out of the UN Human Rights Council in part Bolton says because of what he calls sovereignty concerns. The current US ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley, also cited similar reasons to explain why the US pulled out of the Paris climate accord and the global compact on migration all of these things that we felt like. Were mandating things on the United States. Those aren't things we want to be involved in N. She says President Trump is going to talk about sovereignty in his UN speech Tuesday. It is not saying multi-lateralism can't work, but it saying sovereignty is a priority over all of that multi-lateralism that is countries working together to resolve problems is key to the UN system and UN secretary General Antonio Gutierrez stresses that as he carefully navigates questions about President Trump. I don't like to personalized things I think we are facing a situation in which in different areas and for different reasons the trust of people in their political establishments the trust of states among each other. The thrust of many people international organizations has been eroded, and that multi-lateralism has been in the fire a longtime UN watcher Richard Gowan, who's with a global think tank called UN university says the secretary. General has done an impressive job managing relations with the Trump administration. Barish has thirty gradually very quietly works with Nikki Haley and works with Republicans in Washington to limit damage. Nonetheless. Guitarist is clearly very concerned that the multinational system is starting to warble speaking via Skype gallon says u n diplomats are bracing for a pretty aggressive speech by Trump. Ironically, the US emphasis on sovereignty plays very well with countries like Russia and China that have been trying to constrain the UN and limit its talk of human rights and liberal values. Trump is likely to be at odds with many other countries over Iran to since the US pulled out of a nuclear deal that had been endorsed by the UN Security Council. He's chairing the council meeting on Wednesday. Michelle Kellerman, NPR news, New York..

"Meteorologists crispier is here. Joining us live out here at the convention center. Sounds like good beer-drinking weather, albeit a little bit cool later today. Right. A little bit. So find one of those pumpkin flavored beers. We have. I bet you have a cool start. But we're going into the seventies today about seventy five to seventy seven. That's where we should be for this date in Denver some clouds this morning. We'll give way to sunny skies and dry conditions. It will be breezy keep that in mind forty-nine tonight. Now, tomorrow's the first day of fall, but it will feel like summer eighty-five Sunday eighty eight maybe near ninety s summer tries to hang on. But fall will win early next week. We fall back into the seventies Monday, March April, maybe only the sixties by Tuesday with a chance for some showers. Hey, thank you, Chris. You're welcome. All right now on Colorado's morning, news deadlines and timeframes and supreme court nominee hearings and more in accusations. We get the latest on all of it from ABC's, Terry Moran. It's turning into a high stakes game of chicken the standoff between Republicans and the accuser of supreme court nominee Brett Cavanaugh Christine. Blasi forty insist. She wants an FBI investigation before she'll testify in a statement overnight. Her lawyer saying a hearing that has only two witnesses is not a fair or good faith investigation. Adding the rush to a hearing is unnecessary and contrary to the committee discovering the truth Blasi Ford alleges Brett cavenaugh sexually assaulted her. When the two of them were high school students decades ago Cavanaugh denies the charges. President Trump says he'd like to hear from Blasi Ford, but patients could be running out. I really would want to see what she has to say. But I want to give it all the time. They need. They've already given it time if she shows up that would be wonderful, if she doesn't show up that would be unfortunate cavenaugh has already been preliminarily interviewed under oath by Republican committee staffers who said they have no reason to doubt, the truthfulness of his testimony. This is his background has come under renewed scrutiny. Even this old joke about his high school has resurfaced. The dean was reminding me before before the talk, which is what happens at Georgetown prep stays at Georgetown prep. That's been a good thing for all of us. Republican lawmakers are moving ahead with a Monday hearing offering Blasi Ford several options to be questioned publicly in a private session or by staffers at our home in California. The message from the GOP to Blasi Ford show up or we're heading for a vote. She said she wanted to appear. But if she changes her mind and refused appear there's not much we can do. And so nothing really else. Would remain of the of the investigation and background of of the judge. And we would vote on the nomination. Democrats are standing by Blasi Ford and the call for an investigation before she's put in front of senators for a grilling but Republicans like Senator dean Heller of Nevada sound confident even before they've heard from Blasi Ford Heller saying in a private conference, call organized by the Nevada Republican party. We got a little hiccup here with the cavenaugh nomination will get through this. And we'll get off to the races. And reporting, I think one thing is for sure cavenaugh may testify on Monday blase Ford will not she says, the sooner she can do it as Thursday. Yeah. Exactly. Because I guess she probably time to prepare and she wants to set the terms if they want her to speak. She doesn't want cavenaugh room for one thing and wants an investigation before them. Yes. See if it happens six twenty five money news this morning as we check in with that. Well, the stampede is on for higher check bag fees. American Airlines is the latest raise its fee for a checked bag from twenty five to thirty dollars that matches an increase from delta earlier this week, and it comes after JetBlue and United raise their fees right before Labor Day the airlines site fuel costs as the reason, and they have gone up more than thirty percent of the first six months of the year. In addition to the revenue give the airlines away to make themselves. Look good by waving them for their most frequent flyers. We did a story recently that pointed out that one of the best ways for somebody to advance in a career is by having a mentor. But what if you can't find one you could hire one sometimes? They probably are referring to themselves as a consultant they could be referring to themselves as a life coach. They could have a number of titles appointed as you would be using them as a mentor. Baker is a mentoring expert says it's worth a shot. He may try it on a one time basis, or it may be something that helps you focus on becoming self-employed or growing your business to the next level or something of that nature. Acre says hired mentor can be especially useful for freelancers and others in the gig economy. Starting today.
