"I'm sorry it's a performing arts. Venue generally I had the most wonderful experiences weekend. Where were the family was in new york for a family event and on friday night My wife and daughter and i after dinner went to this little jazz club and it was so exciting to hear live music again in chelsea. Now we're talking about new york city. And there's a euphoria on the streets and what i wanna do is beg everybody. Please get vaccinated. We do not want to lose this sense of liberation to be able to sit there and listen to these young jazz trio Make really beautiful music actually And to do it with a bunch of other people again. What's fantastic anyway so. I'm really glad you're celebrating. The reopening of arts venue You know. I think what happened in a i think you can under read an overread. What happened in ohio You know the you often say well. It's one special election. It doesn't mean anything. No i think this was meaningful. But i don't think it wasn't as it does not mean that progressives are gonna lose all the primaries going forward it doesn't mean that progressives are ineffective. They're getting a lot of stuff into biden's plan corey bush the congresswoman from missouri had a real effect with her sit in her asleep in in front of the capitol In getting president biden to act on evictions to try to halt eviction so progressive still have power. I think in the case nina turner. She went after too many democrats including joe biden Basically saying at one point you know voting for him was like eating half a bowl of excrement and that wasn't the word she is but this is a family show And you know it was obviously going. After hillary clinton and so i think there was something very particular about this and chantal brown. You know the the victorious candidate had support from Jim clyburn and a lot of the Members of the congressional black caucus. Now let it be said. A lot of them are worried about primary so they were wanted to support the more establishment. Sorta candidate But i think it was right now. A lot of democrats. Including some progresses sorta have decided. You can't just you can't be anti biden. The job is to support biden where you need to and pressure him where he needs to be pressured. And i think that is what we learned from that primary. Well you know. I wanna ask you about climate change because we had this terrible. Un report in the washington post have been filled with stories about this but getting back to the politics of a different sort. You've heard a great piece talking. About how a biden has got to show that he gets the the not just progressives but lots of people are looking for some action here on infrastructure and some some social programs including health. Chuck care and stuff so and it'd been frustrated. He isn't moving quickly enough. You seem to think that he's getting with the program at least in terms in some.

"Because i'm not coming. Because lindsey graham absolutely if you wanted to be bipartisan it needs to be this bill and having eighteen republicans including mitch mcconnell himself buck. President trump. i thought was a pretty meaningful moment. I know we're gonna get to some of the other elections. That have happened here. But president trump's power over the party is certainly cabinet. It's different than it used to be when you have eighteen. Republicans saying like not even acknowledging that he is against this bill. Joe biden wants us to be bipartisan. And bipartisan here is defined as having republican support. Far left support brings us to the elections this week. Donald trump had victory in an ohio primary race but on the on the democratic side and that cleveland race one more time than mainstream democrat defeated the progressive democrat. Donald trump weighed in on the democratic primary. Two there was a lot of trump republican money in ohio. I'm from ohio. I've been a leader in the state elected leader in the state. I was on the ground here as soon as you hit cleveland and akron those ads that were coming from dark money. From republicans like kraft and others really made the difference here but at the end of the day. What progressives are celebrating is that we one black white brown working class. People we want cleveland and akron. We won the district where the opponents chantal brown lives. Her own neighbors voted against her. When ended up happening within the suburbs that are mostly wealthy and mostly white. Those ads worked and the turnout should be the story because turnout with less than twenty percent in an area. Where ohio needs to be blue next year. We're we're going to continue to call our state purple all otherwise we're going to be calling it. Read all interesting points. But the the elections if you look at the pattern rahm emanuel moderate george winning time and time again. One thing is i do before. I don't wanna leave without saying an infrastructure in the primary many democrats made fun of joe biden when he said we can do bipartisanship in the general election. They said he do it. This is a major win to show that the institution of bipartisanship and that comedy that working together can happen now to the election. The what i call the heart and soul of the democratic party has gone five for five. And i do think when political pundits all of us can you say that somehow the progressives are the base. The fact is in the republican party. Trump is the base of that party. That was proven in ohio among democrats when you go five for five or you go. Zero for the fact is the democratic establishment. The moderates who say let's work together. Try to figure this out. That is the heart and soul of the party. that is true. About joe biden win the primary. That's true what happened in here in new york city mayor always. It's across the board true. I think some of the elections three or four years ago. Where a lot of people say the progressives i think those were actually more generational than they were ideological primaries. That's probably more because the party. The democratic basis moving right right the amount of republican money and corporate money big oil big farmer that was in ohio shows. That really what we're seeing. Is that the base. Party is moving right. Progressives are holding the left lane and at the same time you got cory bush sleeping out making all the difference in the very same week for millions of americans and being celebrated progressives are making a different. here's holding and holding. The traditional bank. Chose chris that class people. Kind of the flip side of the progressives making headway in washington the trump republicans making headway out on the campaign trail. George maybe we'll see that's been mixed right. He's had some success in some primaries and some failure in some other ones i. I found the republican governors association. A couple of weeks ago and you have the donors there who are concerned about what president trump's roll is going to be in the party going forward and what are you continue to remind people. As president trump was was the dominant presence in our party for five years the year he was running and the four years he was president. He has been out of office next week seven months and everybody wants to go okay. Why hasn't he gone already. You know let's have some weird this instant gratification society in every aspect of our society including politics. It takes time for people to figure out. Where do we want our party to go. We got soundly defeated in twenty twenty at the presidential level. And now we have to decide. Or where do we go from here. That's gonna take a little time on the campaign operative whose dove into these numbers in ohio and texas. Sixth trump's candidate lost in texas six one in ohio. There are huge differences. That tell us where he will have real influence. Texas six was a general election in a soft. Our district trump didn't spend money there he didn't hold rallies they're he lost in ohio. It was a primary to her point. Maybe about base voters. He spent three hundred and fifty thousand dollars he held to rallies there. That is his candidate won because he was able to increase their name mighty. They were both low turnout elections. But i think that is going to be the model moving forward of where we will see him having influence and where we'll see him not having to have to take a quick break. We'll be right back..

"FM and AM 8 20, NPR News and the New York conversation. Oh, hello. Oh, We're back now, with more on the special election primary in Ohio that happened this past week with me. Still, it's Julie Car. Smith, an AP reporter based in Ohio, and Amy Walter, editor in chief of the Cook Political report with Amy Walter. All right. Julie. Let's talk about the general election that is coming up now. Again. Ohio 11 should be a safe Democratic district. But as I was just talking about around black women holding this seat turns out, the Republican nominee is also an African American woman. Is that going to make a difference? You know, It's very interesting, isn't it? So Laverne Gore is her name and she easily won the Republican primary. There wasn't really much competition, but, uh, doesn't that in some ways begin to erase The ability of Shantel ground to talk about black and women's issues in November as a way to Choose her over Laverne Gore. Um Gore is going to try to talk about the failure of Democratic leadership in the city of Cleveland, where the functional literacy rate is 66%. And it's the second poorest district in the country, Congressional E. So those are going to be things that Resonate. We spoke to Shantel for an AP interview the other day, and she said Well, but Ohio has been run by Republicans for at the state level. And that's kind of a misguided idea that Cleveland is somehow suffering because of Republicans, But it is certainly going to be a conversation in Fall or heading into the fall. I just don't think there's any way that a Republican come when this district it went something like 60%. For Biden. I hear you and and, you know, there's a part of me that thinks. Oh, this is this is kind of like that moment in Illinois. When, um, you know, Jack Ryan was running against this. You know, young guy Barack Obama for the US Senate. Ryan had to go when they brought in Allen Keys, and it was just you know, it was It was a warping. Right, Alec? He's had no chance. Even though he was, you know, an African American man running against another African American man. But then there are also these moments when a scandal for whatever reason takes out the Democrat and then boom. You end up with the Republican. I think about Joseph gal down in, Um uh, in Louisiana. I'm Amy. And so I'm just wondering, you know, given that Nina Turner is who she is, and she is a talker, and she is someone who's Not going to go quietly into that Good night. Is there a possibility either that Turner herself might try to make a bid as an independent candidate? Or that, um, she might work as a kind of spoiler in some ways relative to this general that's coming up. First of all, I love that. You just dropped all of this knowledge on politics in the last two seconds give it names that most people even who are deeply involved in politics, don't remember so a plus on that, but they're great examples. Um Look, you were right that Nina Turner even soon after her loss did not go quietly. She argued that it was this outside super Pac money outside of Ohio Forces who really turned this race, um to Chantal Brown's favor, and so this is somebody who is not. Not only should not happy about the results, but but does believe that she was wrong. Did some way. Um, I don't know what the sore loser rules are in Ohio. In some states, you know, you actually cannot. Filed to run as an independent if you've already run in a primary or another race, um but I will say this. The bigger challenge I think for Democrats, especially in a state like Ohio is that this is a redistricting year. And while there is an independent commission in charge of redistricting in Ohio that map has to go in front of the Ohio Legislature, which is Republican. They can overturn it. They can say We don't like this map. We're going to draw it ourselves. In which case, Ohio could become a state where there really are only a couple. Of Democratic seats, one being this Cleveland C and the other being one, um, closer to Colombia. It's in and around Columbus. And that to me is the bigger worry. For Democrats right now, in that state that there's really nothing left for the party, except Couple of districts, miss being one of them. Amy, You're right. There is a sore loser Law. I just looked it up. Thank you for reminding me of that thing, Um and and and for clarifying that, so it won't happen in that way. But I really appreciate your focus here on the redistricting, and I'm wondering Julie, if you have heard from State Democrats, right in sort of as the work that you're doing. There and reporting about sort of what they're facing relative to this question of redistricting. It's an issue facing us here in North Carolina, you know, it's huge in Texas. What is Ohio saying about this? Absolutely there. The first meeting of our district in commission is actually today and it is going to be interesting because we're losing a seat due to population. Not, uh, growing to the extent to keep what we have, and we are absolutely right. And I don't think that Nina Turner You know, would want a Republican and not see personally, I don't You know, she may be a spoiler be looking to something higher. But I think that the Democrats desperately need to keep the Cleveland see because That's what they have. Um, but we are hearing exactly that that it would be only two Democratic seats and they'll try to keep the other. Guess, 13 or 12, or, um, for the Republicans who already control the governor's office, every statewide office, the Supreme Court in both branches, both chambers of the Legislature. Um, but the Republicans are involved in a huge scandal right now themselves. We had we had a speaker of the House. Indicted in, uh the bribery or arrested for bribery and racketeering. And that is not by any means over. Just yesterday are Republican attorney general roped and loop some more individuals into that so that is facing them down in an election year next year. Um, but the districting process was put in place by voters and they are highly supportive of fair maps. We we really need them here. We're one of the most gerrymandered states in the country. And if you look at some of the districts, they look like ducks and and snakes and everything else. So, um, you know they will be paying attention, according to the advocates, who are the reporters heard from yesterday, including possibly going to court. Julie Car. Smith, an AP reporter based in Ohio, and Amy Walter, editor in chief of the Cook Political report with Amy. Walter, who has me Googling things in the middle of our conversation. Thank you.

"In president binds caton so she can't endorse in the race. Calm and i can so that the underlying thread between the battle and why the cbc decided to endorses that the cdc has been has seen more progressive primary challengers in recent years especially since eighteen and in twenty twenty corey. Bush actually said lacy clay from his saint. Louis district black majority district lacy claes the son of a founder of the cbc and joyce beatty the current chairwoman had a progressive challenger. That clark has had a challenge a really intense fear in the cbc of being ousted by progressive challenges in. It's not just because they like being in congress and they want to stay in congress even as some of these kind of younger black progressive candidates win open seats enjoying the cbc changed. The dynamic cbc is a historic group that prides itself on unity on its ability to act as a block. And now that there's more difference than ideology because some of the the younger members are more progressive but also style They're more critical of leadership. They don't necessarily defer to seniority. And so there's kind of competing view of what the cbc should be and nina turner really embodied for them. You know someone that was going to come in and hurt their unity and break their ability to speak with one voice and jim clyburn got so heavily involved in the race because nina turner and killer mike and a conversation that they had during a campaign of an june had suggested that no. He wasn't doing enough to trade on his endorsement of biden. He wasn't doing enough to extract more gains from bite. It and that really angered jim clyburn. And that was part of why he couldn't add for chantal brown and why he came into the district and y you know they got involved in the way that they did so. There's a bigger kind of question about the cbc in their involvement. That is really interesting. I feel like killer. Mike in clyburn have a little bit history as 'cause killer. Mike has been a longtime bernie supporter and campaigned heavily in south carolina. I think the clever presidential candidates have always defeated killer. Mike candidates in those presidential primaries in south carolina. So clever and this is like three for three with with him against a killer. Mike candidates and this was. I mean he really came in and endorsed someone tell she was behind and help took it over the finish line. So he definitely earned the king-making power here while sue one interesting dynamic that was playing out in washington on the same day as this primary. Is that corey bush Known as a member of the squad Very prominent a black woman progressive in the house. I'm elated and i'm overwhelmed. You know because just the thought that so many people right now. Millions of people you know will not be fourth out on the street. She was essentially leading activists to push the biden administration on this issue of the evictions. Moratorium got a ton of attention by staying overnight on the capitol steps. She couldn't literally sleep on the capitol steps. Because you're you're not allowed. So she was up for. I believe like three nights doing this Widespread coverage and the biden administration seems to have reversed course and pushed the cdc to extend this moratorium. And i noticed in the coverage of this depending on whose writing the story. Some people really emphasized the progressive activist wing of the party and corey bush's leadership. Here and others really emphasized. Nancy pelosi's behind the scenes conversations with the white house. So even in these stories of like. Who's actually getting things done in washington. You see the the sort of split in the democratic party playing out. I'm just curious. If you see this playing out a lot more in in congress i think it. It actually played out a bit in this race. Corey buscher supposed to be campaigning. For nina turner a weekend that she stayed out over the capitol steps and she couldn't come because she was trying to make a statement in dc and that was repeatedly mentioned at nina turner's victory on tuesday night that this is why we need people in congress like corey bush like nina turner because they are pushing the administration to get these gains the flip side of this on chantelle brown side. She stressed that nina turner had made too many enemies. She said i'm not going to have to start my time in congress with a long list of apologies to people i've offended. I've got good relationships. I can go in and get things done. Look at these people. I know what jim clyburn enjoy. Spady greg meeks penny thompson. These cbc members who have come into the district. I obviously have a good relationship with marcia fudge. I'm going to be effective. I'm going to be able to get things done. So i think there is still that back and forth in that question of like what brings results in this campaign this morning. I got an email from some very close to joe biden. Who made the following point to wanna tell me what you think of this. This person said chantal brown has fewer than twenty thousand twitter followers. Anita nina turner has nearly half a million but the afc wing of the party now has lost the louisiana special where their candidate outspent the winner. The virginia governor new york city mayor and now ohio eleven were nina turner and her name. R i d started with thirty five point lead end outspent. Shantelle brown person goes on. And the the d triple c polling showing that joe biden's agenda particularly infrastructure. Bill is the strongest argument in front-line districts. That should be a warning. So this person's clearly arguing that kind of biden style. Moderate candidates are crushing it in these elections and that is the way for democrats to keep the house next year. Is this a little too much spin or is this a real trend here. That should have the moderates declaring their like winning the civil war right now. I i actually have because this is a point. A lot on twitter. That twitter is not real life. Lena turner had all of this twitter energy but shawn brown had this port on the ground. that nina turner had all the money but her ideas weren't popular. I think there's two problems at that point..

"Makes people you know you should you. Shouldn't you know they're not looking for truth tellers. They'll looking for people who play the game in a different way and you know and a lot of this Contributed to the fact that she didn't win out with a great big Only it's a lead. And then she and then she. She wind up losing just by Very very few votes. It was a very very low turnout election. But you can't really use that as an excuse. 'cause that was her job was to turn out the electorate. Yeah to get people so so what happened. And i mean the thing that i'm hearing most from fr- from people who are on the ground for example was that That i it. It was the money the money the money that shawntel it wasn't necessarily sean tells money allies Spent all this money Smearing needed turn. They had a lot to work with. I mean from from. Would you saying all that goes into them. Being able to use that stuff and and you know remember. We may think here that that biden is a piece of crap with which he is but they don't see that in in you know the grassroots democratic voters. Don't see that all right. they think he's the greatest grassroots voters all over the country and certainly in cleveland. Think that that biden is awesome. Wonderful their hero and you know once they figure out that he's there he's not in any way shape or form that it's going to be a horrible thing right now. Here's the thing though. A lot of people like me. Just think he's not as bad as i thought he was going to be number one and number two at least he's not donald trump. The problem though is i don't see him doing enough to shore up the democrats stability basically. I'm scared shitless that they're gonna lose the next year and and then all bets are off. Then we're really screwed and then we're seeing all the crap that trump has been doing behind the scenes and how close we came to a coup to really losing everything and realizing what will crew but right exact glenn now he'll have accessible exactly exactly and that's that's scares the shit outta me and i think it's still very possible because this is not over by a long shot. He has those these sycophants in all levels of government ready to do his bidding. So the thing about what the thing that gets me over the defeat of nina turner shantelle brown brown. I don't know much about one way or the other. But she she i don't i was kind of i. I was a little put off by her demeanor because she just wants to be joe. Biden's girl in ohio. It was just. It had throwbacks to the fifties for me and it was. It was the old gang back together again. Jim clyburn hillary clinton seriously I don't want to hear from those people. In some ways is joyce beatty as well known speedy to the people in colombo in ohio especially in columbus ohio. They knew they know she is used the most corrupt politician in the state. She is the queen of the payday lenders and and her and her husband. He's the king i guess. And that's that's what that's all. She is that what she is. She's she's a multimillionaire who has made well over money from the payday lenders. Wow she was the first person to endorse Chantal brown and and she heads the the congressional black caucus which should be a hell of a lot into the head of the congressional black hawk in in in reality. it isn't always will until he dies. clyburn right. But he has you know he has other people you know in while he's the whip You know you can't do both so you know it's this year it's It's turned turn. Okay well and and he knows that roost entirely completely one hundred percent louis and he did and then the other disturbing part of what happened. I believe in ohio reading your piece and a few others is that ohio has an open primary so republicans can vote in the democratic primary. If they want they just say. I want a democratic primary ballot and not a republican ballot. And we don't. I haven't seen any breakout yet. I don't know if you have. But i'd be really curious to see how many republicans voted in the democratic primary against nina turner. Because they were warned. You don't want her there. She's she's dangerous she's one of those. She's one of those radical liberals directly to those voters very targeted Appeal remember there were sixty thousand. Sixty thousand Republican votes in twenty twenty so last year sixty thousand republicans in that district in ohio eleven voting for the republican who is running for congress now of those sixty thousand four thousand of them to vote for shantelle and that's thin and there's no. They'll you'll never persuade me that that didn't happen. Oh i believe it happened do you know. Is there any way to get that data to find out how many republicans voted in the democratic primary. I i'm not certain the maybe some Th there's no there's no sure way to know uh-huh i don't i don't think but there may be some Some some data that will get that will come out. I mean that's why i said in the beginning there's a lot. There's a lot more information than has to come out before we know what's going to happen right. i mean i'm hearing all sorts of different things. One of the she'll run again. That nina will run again in two thousand twenty two which is tough. That's a tough one. Another one is pat. She may decide to run for senate. But i'm gonna break a little news right here now and If i can remember remember the name man There is another so the the the dnc has picked their candidate run for the open. Senate seat in ohio and tim ryan so tim ryan you know. People are probably unaware that until you know two hours ago or something. Tim ryan was anti-choice right. And it's taken you know. Decades convinced him to finally come around to being a pro choice democrat. Imagine that yeah. So he was probably the most You're the most daring thing he's ever done his life and and you know i'm not saying he's the worst thing in the world far from the best..

"They argue democrats. Shouldn't be spending three point five trillion dollars on a reconciliation baggage atop of a two trillion dollar pandemic package and another one trillion on infrastructure. They don't want to be seen as enabling debut as an irresponsible spending spree when the nation's debt is already massive republicans also argue that democrats easily have the power to act on this alone and if they choose not to well. It's their own fault. Senator roy blunt had this to say it's easy for them to deal with it. If they want to senator mitt. Romney agreed the report is the democrats are quote the ones that massively adding to the debt. There's no need for a compromise when they can do it by themselves. Here's a question you might be asking at this point. Why when democrats had just use reconciliation. You might have guessed. It's all about the moderates centrist. Democrats are already having a hard time swallowing the three point. Five trillion dollar price tag of reconciliation and democrats involve. Tell us that adding debt ceiling increase would only lead those centrists to demand a slimmer package. Here's the bottom line. Each side is confident. The other will blink for the sake of an already wobbly economy. Hopefully one of them is right. During the twenty twenty presidential primaries team playbook had countless conversations with biden campaign officials. Who weren't that. It was crucial to separate the social media. Conversation about democratic politics from the conversations happening offline and early states on twitter bernie. Sanders was marching to inevitable victory over joe biden but in places like south carolina biden led from start to finish and trump sanders by almost thirty points. It became a cliche to say that biden's unofficial campaign slogan was quote. Twitter isn't real life in office biden and bernie haven't been very far apart on policy but the old electoral divisions have repeatedly resurfaced in campaigns. This year and lately we've been having a familiar conversation with folks in the biden world. There take the gap between the political twitter. Verse and the real world is as wide as ever chantal brown. The winner of these special election primary ohio on tuesday had some twenty thousand twitter followers before her election.

"They're still coming in. Most important results are going to come in here. But i want to say one last note so to everyone who's legs. I don't want to miss it. There is one other giant factor in this race. I've been meaning to get to. This is a heavily biden district. Okay so now. It's a little skewed. Because ohio was late in the primary and at that point it was nearly over so more people were voting for biden because they thought he was going to win. But the fact that it's a heavily by in district is relevant and might have influenced people as well so those are among the different factors. And i didn't wanna leave on air without all of the factors and so now. Why are the folks in that district. More heavily biden see again goes back to the earlier conversation that we had. But i don't know a single vote. With a bunch of voters the ones that are rich and love the status quo but average voters that go around saying now. I don't really want universal healthcare. Now i don't really wanna fix climate now. I think the is great as it is now. I don't want higher wages. No i don't want democrats to fight for me. I want him to give agreed to corporate tax cuts for the rich. I don't know any real democratic voter thinks that that isn't incredibly rich right That's why they have to be tricked into voting for joe biden and chantal brown and all the corporate democrats. And that's the job of the media. It's not to manufacture news. It's the manufacture consent and so of nina turner loses. Ohio's love district is because they did a the press that a great job of manufacturing consent. Both in this race and in the big picture okay. We got a lot more.

"Are for medicare for all if you ask it as universal health care becomes nearly eighty percent but john brown is not in favor of that. So why did you vote for someone that does not agree with your positions because they lie to you. They trick you if you if the media said here. If you're for universal healthcare neither turner is definitely in favor of it and here's chantal brown saying that. She might not vote for it if she says she won't. She's not for medicare for all. She's not for universal health care. Would they voted for john. Brown very unlikely. Chantal brown's i can do eighty about higher wages. She's tell listen she promises the she'll only do whatever pelosi and biden. Same biden says no. I don't want to fifteen which i sent my to delaware. Senators vote against it. The thing i can't get is just the she bluntly stated that she will continue voting in favor of giving literally billions of our taxpayer money to the right wing government of israel regardless of what they do know conditions. No strings doesn't matter what they do. In the meantime though here the united states people are getting kicked out of their homes in the middle of a pandemic people are getting convicted. People aren't even able to afford their own healthcare. I mean it's insane. It's insane that a candidate can just bluntly transparently say that. I don't even know if most voters in ohio's eleventh district no that she said that that's the thing about the media right. Because i know that if i saw any candidates say that about any other ca i don't care if it's israel i don't care if it's mexico i don't care what country it is if someone said on national television. Oh no i i. I'm gonna always vote in favor of sending billions of dollars to this government or that government regardless of what they do no-strings-attached attached No not interested in that. Look norway's perfectly pleasant country like norway in norway it's an it's actually one of the most progressive countries so yea norway if If a politician said i will never question norway and i will always send billions of dollars of taxpayer. Money your money to norway. I'd be like why would a weird thing to state. i like norway. But why would you never question them. Yeah why would you make our arm. Why are you promising to send billions of dollars of our money to norway without ever conditioning. It on them. Doing what of norway has some sort of crazy and they decided they were gonna go right wing. Well then i don't want you to send money. yeah we. I don't even know why we're sending money to norway right. Yeah but when you say about israel does the media go. Hey that's an interesting position. That's a weird position for chantal brown to have oh look at that democratic majority for israel's spent millions of dollars doing campaign as for her as she says she'll never questioned the state of israel. Okay that if you're a reporter and that didn't seem weird to you. I got new. You're not actually a reporter new propaganda. I in favor of the corporate rule sets. You're sick sad person rashad. Should i pour more fuel on the fire. That sitting next to me right. Now let me ask you i. should i do. It should let me provide a little more context. Go because i agree with you.

"Bs about catching feelings. On like oh. Ilhan omar talked about lobbyists that are in favor of the israeli government. Oh that's anti semitic bull. I can't curse but that is total. Horsecrap i can tell you that right. No there are actually lobbyists for the right wing government of israel they exist. They spend millions of dollars. It don't come tell us we can't talk about it when it's an absolute certainty. They did it in this race. And yes they are very relevant and yes it is about the money that is not a anyway a reference arrays religion or anything like that the only monk color they care about his green. It's the only car color they care about. Exxon mobil didn't come in here into this race because they care about charity or they care about the general welfare. They're worried that. Oh the american people might find out and so chantal brown is going to keep secret. She's gonna take exxonmobil's money in their lobbyist money. And i guarantee you. She will do exactly as she's told she'll vote for whatever the hell exxon mobil one. Sean tell brown even stand for like bro thing about it. Like i'm i'm following along on twitter right just to see what people are tweeting about as the results come in and of course those who support shawntel brown. It's not even about supporting chantal brown. And what she stands for what she's offering policy wise. They're celebrating nina turner losing because their feelings got hurt regarding nina turner's criticisms towards joe biden. What is joe biden done for you so far. I'm curious what house joe biden. The most powerful man literally on this planet just told you guys that he he can't unilaterally extend the eviction moratorium and then it was abundantly clear that he lied and then he turned around. Actually you know want. Maybe because i'm embarrassed by corey bush calling me out on this may extend it for sixty days. I'm gonna go ahead and do that. Oh so it turns out you lied to the american people now. You're extending it because you a barest by progressive democrats calling you up. It was progressive democrats. Who fought to get that eviction moratorium extended during a global pandemic where we still have millions of americans who are out of jobs. Okay but you guys hate new turner because she hurt your feelings over joe biden. So you're going to vote for shawntel brown who's just going to go along with the fecklessness ineffective democratic party. Okay great awesome. I'm looking forward to it break here. I'm gonna say some dangerous things. Probably when we come see dangerous. Things like these establishment democrats Supporters the fan boys of establishment democrats. A really the most pathetic people around corporate power We will propaganda is for corporate power. And make sure that america's don't get healthcare or higher wages yay satis people i have ever seen his servile service of corporate rule. Congratulations anyways this race is not over. There's more results coming up. In fact i know then about half an hour. There's going to be a much bigger batch of of votes coming in and that will probably prove decisive. So stay right here. We got a lot more coverage coming up. We'll be back back on. Trt's special election coverage of ohio's love and district primary election here Janke grand conspiracy. Reshad richie with you guys. Everybody checkout indisputable. Dr rashad richie. That's on after damage report with john. Ida rolla and I'm so happy ecstatic. Proud of rashad is part of the network and he's just Invaluable part of the network. I love doing the show tonight with him. Right i Let me give you a couple of quick updates We have new numbers in. We've been about thirty six percent of the precincts reporting. That's why i say there's a big percentage yet to come in which might come in with the next twenty minutes or so you don't know when exactly is gonna come in obviously Now forty five thousand. Three hundred eighty two votes are in We think there might be seventy one thousand overall and That now the leaves down eight fifty one point one to forty three point one. So that's the good news. The bad news is cook. Political report Has said they've seen enough and they're going to call for chantal brown Now cook political report Before election night is a disaster. It's the establishment myth making factory. It's it's generally garbage And before election nights. And but am. I not the ferris man in america on election nicer generally pretty good And so you have to be able to weed out your own biases and perspectives. To see what reality is and so so. I'm being honest with you guys on that and and so it's they. It doesn't sound overly definitive in the way they framed it But they think this shawntel brown's going to win so that is one data point and important one On election night. So why do i say. Cook political reporters garbage before election nights. They always say this. Kennedy's gonna win. That's part of what leads establishment candidates. Winning is when everybody in the press says. That's the person that's gonna win. Credible legitimate wonderful awesome terrific progressive radical illegitimate terrible. Don't for them. they're not going to win anyway right and so i. I almost never seen cook political report. Say that have progressive challenger is going to win almost never to them the idea of a progressive winning is fantastical couldn't possibly happen. So that's why. I'm nice like corey bush's win. There were shocked out of their minds. Couldn't believe it but on that night they did eventually call it for corey bush at about the right time so a accurate time. So that's why. I'm giving you all that context. Okay look if we'd largely talked on the show about what would happen. If nina turner one and we were hoping that she would be a very loud and strong voice for progressives inside congress kind of like a corey bush or she toledo milan omar and other progresses have been and even more so and we were hoping on top of that that she would provide leadership and again. That's still very much possible. The brunt votes are the significant portion of the votes are are gonna come in in a little bit. But i want to talk a little bit. About what if she doesn't win. Okay well i guess the so first of all. Here's first thing that'll happen. There's salish -ment will celebrate though Like when eliot spitzer stepped down he was sheriff wall street And they got him on a sex scandal and by the way. That was literally paid for detectives. Private tracking of eliot spitzer was paid for by by corporate executives. And now they admitted there was even a documentary about it so corporations came to take out a huge progressive leader that was holding them accountable and when they did both on wall street and generally for democrats. They literally pop champagne. Corks that night. That eliot spitzer stepped up. So i'm sure they've got the champagne on ice right now. They're already sipping it. Yeah and hour knowing this. Especially if wasserman or cook reports said they're probably already guzzling those corporate donations. Certainly pay dividends didn't they. I'm sure they got a lot of champagne for that. But i'm gonna get to szanto brown voters in a second okay supporters at his second but But i after they pop the champagne. What are they gonna do next. Well they're going to say okay. Dogs bullet on that one man. Nina turnaround thirty five point lead and we assassinated her Politically okay We brought an every lobbyist. There was we spent millions There was some by the way good reporting on the race which doesn't happen often for progressives but cleveland plain dealer endorsed nina turner. That is nearly unprecedented. I literally cannot remember any other time that a local newspapers endorsed the progressive candidate..

"Is that right. Yes are well. That is very bad. Yeah it cannot remind people of something. Jon ossoff jon ossoff ran for congress ramp or House and the house of representatives. He lost a lot of people have forgotten that but he was in a race that raise more money than in the history of a congressional district race and he lost jon. Ossoff was defeated. Remember said there's no finality. Democracy that defeat of ossoff did not stop him from running against an incumbent. Us senator in that next election cycle. And he want he want. So here's the context. I'm trying to provide here. If us would not have run that first time and created the atmosphere the excitement got his message out to others created relationships that he didn't have made connections that he never would have thought possible build coalitions inside of the democratic party and progressive movements black and brown coalitions. Lgbtq i community etc. If he did not do that he never would be senator john off today so you have to look at it from a holistic point of view. Read the dan the race right now in front of you now. I still hope my sister pulls this out because it would be a victory not just for us. Ty t. this'll be a victory for america. We know that but if she doesn't pull it out it doesn't mean it's a loss yes so different websites different numbers which is normal on an election night and so another side that i'm looking at says that only eighty four of the five hundred thirteen precincts reporting so far and remember if it's really only around seventy one thousand boats. Well okay. They could You know only sixteen percent of the precincts could be reporting. But nearly half the votes came in the mail imbalanced where chantal brown twenty point lead And so that could be decisive. Even with eighty four percent of the precincts remaining. But we don't yet know but there's a bit of No if it's irony or something along those lines That in national elections. We for a long time now. Ohio leans more decidedly red. Unfortunately but ohio to be along with florida. The prototypical swing state so election after election We would say here on the young turks yes but how cuyahoga county is not. Come in yet. And this. Because i hope counties were. Cleveland is and you wait for the big cities to come in. And then that's swings. Ohio and kim decide whether a is going to win or not and carter county for example in two thousand four came in but it didn't come in enough for john kerry in george bush won the election right so now in this case this is cuyahoga county's. That's and it's not the only county in this district and there's akron in their summit etc. But we still do have Plenty reports votes the left in cuyahoga county Funny enough And so we're certainly waiting on those. I don't wanna get yet get into what if this person wins or loses. Wanna tell you more about the race. And i'll read your comments in in one second here here. In fact i'll read a couple for you right now. so Thomas cunningham who just joined as a member by hitting the joined by blow on youtube said thank you for spreading the progressive message in the truth and and then progressive conduct road in go nina. She has a canadian. Progressives cheering her on progresses around the world united we stand and btw. Do we love ty t. o. Or so thank you for saying that we appreciate it and comsip radical cook wrote wrote in the member station. Should we give obama credit. For not endorsing sean. Tell at the last second. Well would be a really low bar for granted. But i will say that. If obama had come into this tiny little race one it would have been telling you about how much the establishment was panicking about nina turner and progressives but nina turner specific. But if he had it would have been over. I mean if if obama comes into a predominantly black district and endorses. Someone person is very very likely to win So thank god. He didn't do that. But clyburn these days is is sometimes acting as an unofficial proxy So i mean there. Salvador media is built up clyburn as some sort of giant and and and so he might have made an enormous difference here. So we'll see how that goes. But i wanted to build on one of the things that Rashad said you know Marcia fudge is very popular in the district because she was the congresswoman there for a long time. And the reason we're having this special election is because she had appointed to become the housing and urban development secretary for binding and marcia fudge if we're being honest total establishment democrat and so if she could endorse show almost certainly would have endorsed shawntel brown now shell brown in the beginning no like everyone else. Shoot a picked somebody out of a hat right. So shawntel wasn't any more qualified than the other eleven people running and but but once the lobbyists decided was chantal brown. Very likely marcia fudge would've also said chantelle brown but she as sitting cabinet member. She's not allowed indoors in a race. So that is why toll brown says. Oh i have such a great working history with marcia fudge wink on her website. And then they had like. I forget if it was like marcia. Fudge is mom or aunt or daughter. Something come out and say hey. I really like chantal brown wink right. So they did a lot of winking from the marcia fudge cam the to lead people towards sean tell brennan if that made a big difference or not But know we're honest. We care about the facts here. I'm i'm telling you. There are no question marcia fudge could have shown was certainly would have indoor chantal brown and and i have no reverence for african american corporate democrats That's the press bullies. You intas saying no. You have to show the more respect. No i don't i. I have no respect for steny hoyer. I have no respect for any white corporate democrat. Why would i weirdly. Have respect for establishment or corporate. Black democrats are just don't and so you can't make me and i don't care what you call me i'll call you the same thing back. I don't care. I don't care about your stupid dirty tricks. Establishment media and otherwise a tiny bit of movement. Here not much to to know but fifty one point three to forty two point five. So now it's almost a nine point lead Down nine points. It's gotta go faster than this in order for her to catch up But it's not that the the numbers coming in are are not catching up fast enough. Is that the numbers coming in are tiny so we moved from thirty thousand votes to thirty nine thousand eight hundred and thirty votes. So that's the reality here guys when we szanto browns said i will. I will never condition a israel and she put up a red box in her website. Red box means. I want independent expenditures. You're not actually supposed to literally put like in the beginning to put bread boxes than they became more sophisticated but shantelle was desperate so she put up a little red box which means independent expenditures. I'm willing to be corrupt for you. Please spend money. I will do whatever you need. And if that wasn't clear enough this is before democratic majority for israel came in or any other lobbyists came in. She put out three quotes from board members of democratic majority for israel underneath the red box in other words i want the right wing israeli lobbyists to come fun my campaign against this progressive and they did and they delivered and by the way if you're in the establishment media and you post them. Bs about catching feelings. On like oh. Ilhan omar talked about lobbyists that are in favor of the israeli government. Oh that's anti semitic bull. I can't curse.

"And call them and snitch. Okay gangsters were. Of course they are. Of course they are so now he gave a thousand dollars to his counterpart to the person he's supposed to be opposed to but they're not imposed charge. Resume opposed to the republican party. She works at the republican party. We covered this so-called speech of hers last week right with the fake applause from the dj etcetera species talking about unlike nina turner and bipartisan. I work with republicans all the time i know. And they know that's why they're funding your campaign so other republicans. Have that have given a mitch. Mcconnell lizzie graham. The worst the worst republicans they have also given a chantal brown. So donors are like. Oh i like mitch. Mcconnell and i like chantal brown and one person known of the donors not the republican donors not the corrupt democratic donors like is nina turner guys. I've never seen anything like this. And i told you it was going to happen. We told you from day one in this race that it was going to be unprecedented because nina turner is a mortal threat to corruption. So they're all coming so it it's it's like they put out an ape bullets and they said no. This is the one person in america. We must stop and so nina. Turner dot com slash. Hello it's just you guys versus. All of them need turn. It comes shallow. You've raised a lot of money for her. Okay of course not nearly the money that these guys have done okay. They've got millions. But that money's being here giant difference. She still leading the race but she used to have a thirty five point lead now it is closed considerably and there's only a couple of days left now by the way we're going to cover that race so this saturday tune in right here to ty t. i'm gonna personally be hosting from here in la an event they're doing in cleveland by the way cornell west is going to be there as so's bernie sanders assoc corey bush and keith ellison.

But i don't have any of the rally other than covering for me as as media the rallies for nina turner and other politicians that are back your progress. Interacting by the way tons of politicians in cleveland. Not only endorsing turn from the beginning. But some of them have now flipped had gone to chantal brown. Because she's the head of the democratic party in that county and they're like no this is beyond the pale. I'm know they've never seen anything like you know. We're going to need a turner because these are outsiders and these are these people are clearly up to no good and my god. They're so scared. Nina turner. She might actually do something for us right and on the night of the election. That's just next. Tuesday august third. We'll also cover it right here on the young turks my god if she loses.

"Country is more polarized than ever. Anita turner is no help unified democrats. Turn the said no support clinton over trump not nina turner helped biden defeat. Trump tuna refused instead. Turn us at voting for binding was like eating shit word. Shit dan. that's what it was like. Didn't i couldn't figure it out eating shit What do you make of this race. Are you feeling two thousand sixteen primary vibes or Or is this a sign of things to come in the democratic primaries. A little bit of both. This is a i mean. It definitely is a two thousand sixteen proxy war much less so than a twenty twenty proxy wars since pretty sanders. Joe biden are working hand in hand. Pass a hugely progressive populist agenda on the best you. They're biff biff on my god. This is going to be the worst performing positive. American american history consuming alphabet soup with us I don't know that it tells us a ton about the future of the party. This is an incredibly democratic district. Nina is incredibly well known chantal brown is well known although not as well known who wins matters somewhat just because of the narrow margins in the house right. There he wins. The primary doesn't matter in terms of who wins the general democrats gonna win the general. We should just put that out there. Like whether it's either gonna be nina. Turner chantal brown republicans. Not gonna win this district. So that part's good. But you're right. It matters in congress a lot whether you have another member of the squad who could make life difficult for nancy pelosi or whether you have someone who would presumably be a little more favorable to what leadership does i mean today and only been six months or whatever it is a oc ion presley. The squad mall bowman montier. Joan sort of this new ascended wing of young progressives have used leverage they have both publicly and privately but have worked constructively than they are not the freedom caucus right. They are not sinking bills to make a point. That i mean that can obviously change and i think one of the reasons why that hasn't happened is part is what's the stuff that's coming from the senate with bernie sanders and elizabeth warren working with the by demonstrators. They're not being forced to swallow these incredibly centrist bills. They're not being put position of no deal. No climate yet right. But when you every person you know given shell. Brown's record and congressman clyburn supportive for the assumption would be that if she were to come to congress she would be someone who would be more part of the leadership establishment than turner would be. So that's where i think it matter. Some is his ultimate consequential as tell us anything about the direction of the democratic party that i'm not so sure about but it could matter closely divided congress which is why i think congressman clyburn. His you know. He has no reason to get involved right or for the cbc to endorse in a race between two black candidates democratic primary. It's you know that that's what speaks to that consequences of the significance of this. I do find it interesting. That both candidates seem to be downplaying their ideology talking more about their stance on issues. Which of course is You know it says something about your ideology but they're not necessarily talking about. I'm a progressive alma. Moderate it's more unique attorney saying i'm from outside the establishment she's not chantal brown is saying i'm not a bomb thrower i don't care about headlines as much i care about getting stuff done. So they are trying to. And they're and they're also leaning on their relationships in the district and and who they know and how they've been there for voters even more so than making they're trying not to make it as much of a proxy battle over ideology The two candidates which i think does say something about what. It's actually run a raise. As opposed to analyze a race. You know sitting in the cheap seats. I mean we've seen this. Throughout the democratic primaries in the trump era outside of the presidential primaries a lot of sort of the questions around moderation or progressivism is not necessarily ideological to attitude. No yes right where you are. You know like takeover north on in his two thousand seventeen race. He very moderate attitudinally like he talks about bipartisan. I mean joe. Biden is the perfect example of that right certainly from a policy perspective more moderate than a lot of people running but quite progressive but as moderation is as much in his language in sort of his structural reform stuff than it is in particular in policies. Yeah and it's interesting with nina. Turn do because i've seen her at a at a bernie sanders rally in the primary and she is an electrifying speaker but attitudinally in the way that she's talking in this race is a little different than when she was at bernie sanders rally because she knows she wants to. You know win the race Finally and perhaps most importantly voters here in california will soon decide whether or not to recall gavin newsom as governor and replace him with one of the many extremely trumpy republicans who've made it on the ballot like right wing radio host and current. Gop front runner. Larry elder reality tv. Star caitlyn jenner. But that's impossible. You say how can a democrat lose california. Well here's how the recall ballot will have only two questions on it. One should gavin newsom be recalled in into which candidate should replace in if a simple majority says yes to the first question. The republican with the most votes becomes governor. That's how a recall works. It is incredibly fucked up And here is wednesdays. Poll from uc berkeley in the la times support for recalling. Newsom stands at forty seven percent with fifty percent opposed just shy of the margin of error Even though democratic voters have a twenty two point registration advantage over republicans in california in this poll ninety percent of republicans expressed a high level of interest in the recall while just fifty eight percent of democrats and fifty three percent of independence. Were interested in the race. Dan how real is the threat. The california made be governed by trump republican. Are you ready to move are we. Are we getting ready to move back east. What's going on. i've been doing some zillow. Searches of minneapolis probably mistakes. I don't even know where we should move to. We're going to skirt maybe the hawaii. We're going west. Definitely you want to move to an island. During a period of rapidly accelerating clinton smart. There are reasons to be skeptical of this poll. And i say that because it's a poll like as we just said polls we don't believe pose anymore. So that's that's fine but it's you know it's something there's been a couple now you'll get averages there's been a couple now that have been showed a little closer than you would think with a twenty two point reporter registration. I think that's what we can say confidently. What is notable about. This poll is the gap between likely registered. Voters likely voters. It's very close registered voters less up and usually when you see a gap that large with likely voter screen. It usually means that something is not right but it doesn't matter like if i was working on the recall i would think this is the greatest news ever. I would not skew this poll. I would not try to tell everyone. It's fine to worry about. I would fucking run ads with it. I would call everyone about it like what..

Hi Amy and welcome to all of our listeners and viewers across the country and around the world. Well the House of Representatives select committee investigating the January 6th insurrection at the capitol. Hold its first hearing Tuesday. And her testimony from four police officers who were attacked by Trump supporters while defending the capitol. The committee's made up of 7 Democrats and two Republicans Liz Cheney and Adam kinzinger. Both of whom voted to impeach Trump for his role in instigating the assault on the capitol. Last week House minority leader Kevin McCarthy pulled all his recommended committee members 5 of them after House speaker Nancy Pelosi veto two of his picks. U.S. capitol police sergeant aquilino gonal spoke first during the insurrection. He was beaten with a flagpole and attacked with chemical spray. Canal is a Dominican immigrant who served in the U.S. Army in Iraq. While we were subjected was like something from a medieval battle we forehand to him inch by inch to prevent an invasion of the care provided by intent on subverting our democratic process. My fellow officers and I were committed to not letting any writers breach the capital. It was a prolonged and desperate struggle. The writers attempted to breach the capital were shouting Trump send us. Pick the right side. We want Trump. I believe her officers screaming in agony and pain just an arm left from me. I didn't know at that time that was officer Hodges. And he's here today to testify. I too was being crushed by the writers. I could feel my myself losing oxygen and recall thinking to myself this is how I'm going to die defending this entrance. U.S. capitol police sergeant aquilino gunnel testifying Tuesday before the House select committee investigating the January 6th insurrection at the capitol. During his testimony Gino referenced D.C. Metropolitan Police department officer Daniel Hodges who also testified at the hearing describing how Trump supporters almost crushed him to death. On my left was a man with a clear ride shield stolen during the assault. He slammed it against me and with all the weight of the body is pushing behind him trapped me. My arms were pinned and effectively useless trapped against either the shield on my left or the door frame on my right. With my posture granting me no functional strength or freedom of movement. I was effectively defenseless. And gradually sustaining injury from the increasing pressure of the mob. Directly in front of me a man seized the opportunity of my vulnerability. Grabbed the front of my gas mask and used it to beat my head against the door. He switched to pulling it off my head the strap stretching against my skull and straining my neck. He never entered uttered any words I recognized but opted instead for guttural screams. I remember filming at the mouth. He also put his cell phone as mouths so they had both fans free to assault me. Eventually he succeeded in stripping away my gas mask and a new rush of exposure to CS and OC spray hit me. The mob of terrorists were coordinating their efforts now shouting heave Ho. As a synchronized pushing their weight forward crushing me further against the metal door frame. The man in front of me grabbed my baton that I still held in my hands. And my current state I was unable to retain my weapon. He bashed me in the head and faced with a rupturing my lip and adding additional injury to my skull. That was D.C. Metropolitan Police department officer Daniel Hodges. And this is Mike phenom who is also an officer with the D.C. Metropolitan Police. He suffered a heart.

"I'll give you those details in just a second but the new york times just covered this race and i wanted to share their framing on it but also some of the information that we know regarding who's supporting what and where everyone stands on this particular race. I an interesting excerpt from the new york times piece democrats. There's no specificity here. just democrats democrats say. There is little broader significance to this individual house primary contest. One that pits to black women against each other in a safe democratic district that had been represented by marcia fudge before she was confirmed as president biden secretary of housing and urban development by the way position that fudge before being named for that position thought she didn't want because typically it just goes to Someone who's black when reality she wanted to be in charge of the agriculture department. Anyway i wanted to give you guys that context. I think it's important but with that. Said what are your thoughts. On that. First excerpt that i read. So why are we talking about it. I mean this is. What's amazing right. You're like lights largely non important in the grand democratic strategy but we gotta stick it to the progressives and keep them in their place literally all they're just admitting that it's not strategic and yet hundreds of thousands of dollars from from like democrats. I mean is the d triple c involved at this point And actually pro israeli forces the united states have been just funneling money into nina turner's opponent. So that's all you need to know right. There is that actually they want other democrats to lose. Meanwhile progressives are always being told. Oh you hate unity. Why do you eight unity honey. Nina turner was leading by double digits. Up until you funneled all that money our opponent so we were fine with you before that. Think you're against unity anyway. Yeah no that's exactly right. So you know nina turner and her campaign had done a poll just to see where everyone stood. In this race and she was leading i mean chantal brown was so far behind and that was when hillary clinton got involved in did her endorsement. At first i was like who cares. I mean hillary clinton is not a popular figure so if. I were nina turner. I'd be elated about this. Jake made an important point. And i think he was right. That was hillary clinton essentially doing like a allowed call to corporate democrats and their you know their funders to get involved in this race and show their support for shantelle brown. And that's exactly what happened. So that excerpt. I read you from the new york. Times was immediately followed with this it in the final weeks of the campaign. The party establishment is throwing copious. This is correct. Copious amounts of time and money into an effort to stop miss turner a fiery former cleveland councilwoman and ohio state senator. And let's be clear on the differences between a turner and sean brown nina turner fights for everything that we experienced during the bernie sanders campaign. Not just in two thousand sixteen but also in two thousand twenty medicare for all a living wage free college. You know all of the bread and butter issues that progressives find incredibly important i think the majority of americans find incredibly important to be honest Shantelle brown though even in this article in the context of this Legacy outlet has Made it clear like she's just this laid back you know won't go against the grain candidate. The congressional black caucus political action committee though has endorsed chantal brown. That's turner's main rival The cuyahoga county democratic party chairwoman so of hillary clinton and the highest ranking black highest ranking black member of the house. Jim clyburn who will be campaigning. This weekend for brown they argue. That brown is the better candidate with a unifying message. Reference that Franchesca beta little earlier but to be fair. Nina turner also has backing representative andrea cossio. Cortez of new york. We'll be knocking on doors for the first or four her the same weekend representative clyburn will be in town bernie. Sanders will join the fray in person the last weekend before the election and I should also note that. The working families party is Forming a pack in order to provide some funding for nina turner's campaign. They're going to give at least one hundred fifty thousand dollars up to two hundred thousand dollars. We'll see what the end result is but the money is one thing i think the the support is incredibly important. Getting people motivated and excited is incredibly important and Yet i mean nina turner. Winning is very important okay. I don't think that electoral politics or the end all be all in fact i cringe anytime. Anyone tries to say that electoral politics or the mo- like it's the most important thing nothing else matters. No grassroots organizing matters pressure from outside Matters right like there needs to be this outside inside a strategy. We need more labor unions. We need to empower labour. That's a huge part of the equation. Something that you talk about quite a bit Franchesca and and you know if you care to elaborate on it. I'd love to hear it. Well yeah. I think you're you're totally right about inside out strategy and what this shows. Is that the democratic party is deathly afraid of the outside strategy. They are terrified of the grassroots right. Where is the republican party. Love their grassroots. Oyo you've got extremist views. Love it now. Democrats don't have extremist views. Right like democrats are like you know. Hey we want healthcare. Hey we want a green new deal you know. You see the amazon's burning stop that as soon as possible. Thanks hey i wanna live. I wanna family and maybe grandchildren anyway like. That's that is that is seen as extreme. And i will also say this clyburn man couldn't involve once again clyburn. Aw thank you mr middle of the road and unlike and here. Here's what we the lesson of. Two thousand twenty is very interesting curious. What you think but i feel like this. This says to us that democrats are taking away from twenty twenty that once again the way to go is middle of the road is keep it safe is don't cause too many waves. Republicans think that joe biden is a communist. Think he is a social. It doesn't matter then if you put up an actual democratic socialist. You're still going to get the same critiques. And i would argue that. Like look i think getting headlines as good of meat. Turner is in congress. She'll get headlines and that will benefit the movements for all of the things that we're talking about in the we want to win. It's just that they're so afraid. And and i don't know i think the last my last point is one thing that keeps on getting trotted out. All you hear it all the time on mainstream media de fund. The police really hurt democrats de fund. The police really heard black lives matter really hurting the debt. Really because actually if you look at the studies there was more voter energy Because of the black lives matter movement in twenty. Twenty because of everything. that's that popped off after. George floyd was murdered that galvanized people to the polls rights. I wanna say biden was your choice. I say that that movement energy that outside energy also propelled you into victory. So don't turn your nose a turn your back on that roots. No the corporate wing of the democratic party doesn't get called out enough regarding the gas lighting that they engage in on a regular basis..

Sales status mostly intact while expanding medicare benefits to include. Dental hearing and vision is in the bill. Rumblings that lowering the eligibility age was Also seems to have been contradicted so that might have been a play by progressive democrats to force the issue. The pentagon has admitted that several of the suspects in the assassination of haiti's president moe's have previously been trained by by the us military. And yes. that's just what they're telling us. After the european union proposed a climate tariff on countries that aren't slashing their emission senate democrats float a similar proposal. Something to monitor a new poll shows nina turner and chantal. Brown are in a dead heat. In ohio's eleventh after chantal brown received an influx of money from the pro israel lobby mostly in the form of negative ads about nina turner. That election is early. August the cdc reports that drug overdose deaths increased by thirty percent in two thousand twenty the ninety three thousand with a growing number of deaths attributed to fennel a reminder that the pandemic had awful ripple effects beyond covet and lastly in terrifying news the amazon rainforest is now emitting more co two than it absorbs. The lungs of the earth are in dire straits. All this send more on today's program. Welcome to the show. Ladies and gentlemen. Sam is out today as he is most thursdays these days but we have got a great show for you today. last night pretty significant nba finals game. We're now all tied up to. I was wrong about the bucks. I've been think you honest would be healthy enough to do things like Guard one guy in pick and roll and then go a block the lob of the other guy and another guy behind him and he was able to do that so One of the best players will ever see yes. The sheer athleticism of that person is just something to behold. It's it's really you know. Some people are seeing like they're from a different planet and he's one of those guys but Yeah also. I mean devon booker the performance so i. I'm hoping this seven games. I said sons and six at the start but I don't know. I think it could go seven. So we'll see but you know. Let's talk about cuba a little bit here. Because protests have broken out in cuba recently over food medicinal shortages. And you know people have the right to critique their government They have legitimate critiques. They can have legitimate critiques over the inefficiencies of the cuban government ability to provide which have been exacerbated by the pandemic that crippled cuba's economy because it relies a lot on tourism. And you know not. Every critique of a government that is on the left is something that we're going to say is illegitimate right. That's that's not. What what we're talking about here. But in the united states the conversation about the us's crippling sanctions that were reinstated by the trump administration. Being a driving factor here is largely absent. It's not at least talked enough at all. And these sanctions have become more and more obviously immoral and cruel and that includes sanctions on iran and other countries amidst this global pandemic because sanctions hurt the citizenry. They are offset onto the people in that country. And they're starved. And they're lacking in medical supplies in many instances. Luckily the cuban government has a significant history of providing for its citizens. So it's not as bad as say in iran but the biden administration has not reversed trump's reversal of of obama's policy of ending much of those crippling sanctions. Jen psaki was asked about this yesterday. Let's take a listen to what she had to say. And you and other significant cuba cuba. What is status of the review of the trump era policy. Insure.

"You like that coming at four o'clock in the morning my goodness eh. joe manchin is at her going. Like oh you have to do is kind of do what i'm telling you to do and you'll be fine racing i. I don't understand why y'all want us to write checks that our kids won't be able to cash because it's very silly but joe biden isn't working with mansion and now working across the aisle instead he has decided to under the one time he worked across the aisle. He decided to immediately within two hours undercut his own message to the point where the white house had walk it back. Here's joe manchin. Repeating a message that if joe biden actually said might make joe biden slightly more popular. You put me anywhere you want to in the political spectrum. But i think. I'm pretty much interest in the middle. Where most people are em- pragmatic enough to figure. Okay i understand you've identified the need on this side but we've already spent many trillions of dollars attending to a lot of those needs. How much more can we afford. Do you want more debt. I looked at this morning. We're twenty eight almost point five trillion dollars of debt. How much more can we add on. Stephanie how much more can we pass on to your children. The next generation. We've always said we're writing. Checks aren't his can't cash it elizabeth. Warren says we're never going to have to cash those cheques. Because who cares and that is a battle inside the democratic party. It is not going to end anytime soon. Actually getting worse like a lot worse which is why for example representative. James clyburn is now opposing. An ally of bernie sanders in a special election in cleveland. There's a major battle that has broken out inside the democratic party. Here here i mean. It's it's astonishing on tuesday. Kleiber and took aim at one of sanders is most outspoken accolades. Nina turner a hero to laugh through surgery in her campaign in ohio to claim the congressional seat vacated by marcia fudge clyburn is now endorsing chantal brown turner's leading opponent. He said the reason is because this is the sloganeering of the parties left flank which is dangerous. Hey all that is masking. This is the presence of joe. Biden is all that is masking this at this point and because again joe biden's not there and he doesn't seem super threatening like okay. Fine says he radicals modern cares. He's barely alive. Meanwhile comma harris's waiting. The winston democrats are panicking. They're just panicking because every time. Kamala harris appears on camera. You know it's gonna get bad and so you're starting to see the apple research thompsons. It's unbelievable actually kamala harris. You would think is in a sort of impregnable position that joe biden or two plots or if he were to not run in a couple of years you would think that come. The harris would be the obvious heir-apparent. I mean he's been not only campaigning with her. He brings out randomly at events as though she is the co president as opposed to occupying the office. That is worn bucket of spit right. And so it's very weird. He's giving her these big. The sort of big portfolios like the border like these high profile portfolios climate change and. Then she's terrible at it and so what you're starting to see his rebellion against kamala harris inside the democratic party. There's an pure apple being dropped on her today. In politico there is a piece called not a healthy environment. Kamla harris office rife with descent. Now we know that kamala harris. Her office is a bleep show. There's an entire article in the new york times when she first had dropped out of the presidential race before iowa. Talking about how it was completely dysfunctional. She couldn't run an office. She a terrible candidate and then of course as soon as biden picture she became the greatest candidate in the history of the world. Why did we ever do that to comma why it will now. There's a piece in politico and the bills starting coming out turns out. Nobody likes kamla. When vice president kamala harris finally made the decision to visit the mexico border last week people inside. Her own office were blindsided by the news for days. Aids and outside allies had been calling and texting with each other about the political fallout. A potential trip would entail but when it became known that she was going to el paso and left many scrambling including officials who are responsible for making travel arrangements and others outside the. Vp's office charged with crafting the messaging across the administration. The handling of the border visit rights. Politico was the latest chaotic moment for staff quickly become mired in them. Harris's team is experiencing low morale poorest lines of communication diminish trust among aides and senior officials. Much of the frustration internally is directed at tina flournoy harris's chief of staff a veteran of democratic politics who began working for her earlier this year in interviews twenty two current and former vp aids administration officials in associates of harrison biden described a tent and at times dour atmosphere. Aides allies had flournoy in an apparent effort to protect harris has instead created an insular environment. Where ideas are ignored met with harsh dismissal. Dismissals and decisions are dragged out often. They said she refuses to take responsibility for delicate issues and blends staffers for the negative results. That causes well. Much of the ir aimed at harrison chief to administration officials said the. Vp herself also bears responsibility for the way her office run. It all starts at the tops of one of the administration officials. People are thrown under the bus from the very top. they're short fuses. It's an abusive environment. It's not a healthy environment. He will often feel mistreated. It's not a place where people feel supported. It's a place where people feel treated like bleep. Man the apple coming out on kamala harris. This early they are in serious trouble. Democrats are in trouble. They know they're in trouble and they can't. They cannot direct that car away from the cliff. They can't they are stuck between rock and a hard place in comal is waiting in the wings and they're trying preemptively to dumper and ain't gonna work if you're a republican i mean just focus on talking about the democrats that's it. They're the easiest pickings.

"Quick look at that something that continues to haunt me to this day as my mother down at the young age of forty two years old no insurance no money in the bank so when i fight for medicare for all i'm fighting for my momma who's not here and working class people need to have healthcare as right not a privilege. The poor the work important and barely middle should live a good life should not dictate whether or not you have access to healthcare. Now the american people see that and they love it. Because so many can relate to it in fact medicare for all polls. Well in ohio's eleventh district medicare for all polls well period nationally. There have been multiple national polls that show that even with the corporate framing of the question that makes it seem like they would lose. You know the access. They have to the specific doctors. They go to people still want a single payer healthcare system and so again americans see that ad and think yes right on right on. Finally that's what we want but corporate democrats that and think we need to crush her. We need to crush her. So one day. After turner's campaign put that out corporate democrats host a fundraiser with the help of the private healthcare industry the daily post reports that the very next day corporate lobbyists held a washington fundraiser fraternals primary opponent chantal brown among those headlining. The fundraiser was jerome. Murray a registered lobbyist for the pharmaceutical researchers and manufacturers association which has been backing a nationwide campaign to reduce support for medicare. For all you know. With all these monied interests trying to completely dismantle public support for medicare for all. It is kind of fascinating how much they failed right. It is fascinating. How many americans still want a single.
