"Welcome back to the Jim bohannon show at one 8 6 6 5 O Jimbo. One 8 6 6 5 O 5 four 6 two 6. It's interesting to note all of the democratic money being spent in Republican primary this year. Upwards of the 53 to $55 million amount needs to be about right. Not an uncommon tactic to spend money in the opposing party's primary in support of a candidate you deem would be easier to beat in the general election in November. I know that I think it was about 2010 in the Missouri that the incumbent democratic senator Claire mccaskill had no primary opposition. But she was very busy in the primary. She was buying ads about Republicans. There were three Republicans running against Claire mccaskill that year, and most everybody, including I gather Claire, had figured out the two of them at a real shot at beating her in November. The third one, Todd Aiken, was an off the wall, wild man, and Claire determined that she would like to run against Todd. So she set out to make it happen. And she did. She ran commercials in the Missouri leading up to the Missouri primary. Todd akin to conservative from Missouri. And of course, Missouri conservatives did what? Just what she wanted them to do. They said, oh yeah, we'll show you. And they proceeded to nominate the one Republican Claire could beat, and she did. And got 6 years in the U.S. Senate that she shouldn't have had. So anyway, the idea that Democrats are running spending money in Republican primaries is no big surprise. In most years. However, this was not just any year. Because the number one Democrat, president Joe Biden, has declared that maga Republicans are not just a faction. No, they are a threat to the republic, a threat to personal freedom, a threat to blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. Now then, are the Democrats apparently they don't believe Joe Biden either that or they don't care. That they are spending money on somebody as bad as the American Nazi Party to hear the president of the United States speak so they're spending 53 to $55 million on maga Republicans and in some cases they have succeeded that is to say they have those particular Republicans have one nomination in those states, whether or not it was democratic money or not. We'll never know, but it certainly didn't hurt any. Now then. What if that bag of Republican goes on having won the nomination goes on to beat the Democrat in the fall? A bad circumstance for Democrats in any year, but a catastrophe. This year, because the head Democrat Joe Biden has informed them that maga Republicans are a threat to the republic, blah, blah. Yeah, right. I just find it interesting. Careful what you wish for. You may recall a few years ago, what was it operation confusion that Rush Limbaugh did? I forget what he called it. But when Obama and Hillary Clinton in 2008 were going on and on and on and their primary battle for president and Obama was leading, but to Hillary would just not go away. And. Rush Limbaugh asked Republicans in states where you could cross over easily to cross over and vote for Hillary and continue the pain of Democrats trying to settle on who their presidential nominee was. Again, Hillary did hang in there a long time, whether or not Russia's effort was the reason. I don't know, I suspect that it probably helped Hillary at some regard. Anyway, I just find it interesting. That you see, you have, according to at least the head Democrat, you have the specter of Democrats spending 53 to $55 million in support of people who, if they win, would destroy the republic. Isn't that interesting? Either Democrats don't take what the president had to say very seriously, or they don't care that they have helped a group which will destroy the republic. And again, if, in fact, maga Republicans win those nominations. If they go on to win the general election, that's what we would call for the Democrats a major oopsie. Oopsie. I find that funny is all get out. One 8 6 6 5 O Jimbo, one 8 6 6 5 O 5 four 6 two 6. What do you think about the notion of one party meddling if you will in the politics of another party? Is that unfair? Should it be illegal? What do you think about that? Just curious. One 8 6 6 5 O Jimbo one 8 6 6 5 O 5 four 6 two 6. I've talked with some people who have been very upset about that kind of thing. For example, when I lived in Maryland, I registered as a Democrat because in my jurisdiction, only Democrats won, and I wanted two shots at the ultimate winner. Once in the primary to vote for the most conservative Democrat I could find, and then once in the general election, voting for the Republican, there's no way they were going to win. And the general I voted for the republic in any way. One 8 6 6 5 O Jimbo and more to come on the Jimbo hadnot show in just a moment. Finding the right person for the job isn't easy. Just ask someone who hired a drama coach to be an IT guy. Yeah, I'm having trouble logging in. I'm not buying it, say it again, this time with feeling. I can't log in? Come on, man. I want to

"God. Okay, let's look at Florida, a man from. Florida. Charlie Crist. Yes. Is our nominee former Republican. Yeah. We were saying to Robert and Florida yesterday, he and his wife voted for freed one. Whoever can beat desantis freed and Christopher about the same in matchups, they're both lag about 42 or 43% to 50% to desantis, but that being said, we've got to beat the Santos. Val demings crushed. I had to look at these numbers once again. Val demings defeated her closest opponent by 78 points. She notched 84% of the votes. She is a badass. Yes, she is. We have had her on the show. She is indeed a badass. So anyway, she is and she what is the polling there? Blah, blah. 48 to 44%. She is ahead of Rubio in that matchup. Claire mccaskill yesterday on MSNBC. He was taught. She really went in on that one because she said everyone's talking about Georgia and Pennsylvania. But she said Marco Rubio in Florida is in trouble scared. Yeah. He needs to be worried about what's going on. And in Florida with the abortion laws and everything else that's going on down there. So I think joy Reid was saying, who's from Florida? She's just, they can't run any of the usual plays against her. She was the police chief. Yeah. Like, they can't run the weak liberal to fund the police blah blah blah. Right? And she's a badass motorcycle. And was going to write it to Miami sexy liberals. So I'm just saying. A lot of badassery. It could be the first senator we get on the show. Oh, we had senator Kerry. That was a long time ago. Yeah, we had John Kerry. What? Yeah, we've had senator. We've had a fight. It's Terry Reid on the show. Oh, that's true. You see it was a while ago though. Was that Klobuchar on the show? That's true. Okay, that's true. Okay, well, we've been at no memory. When we've been at the conventions. No, they've called into. Sanders on here. Wow. Listen. Val demings will be the famous thing we've had Patrick Leahy on. Oh, have we? Did we offer him a lozenge? And then he never came back. He always does seem like he needs a lawsuit. We're just liberal helpers. He's also retiring. Speaking of liberal helpers

What to Do About Democrat-Backed Republicans Running for Office?

"To highlight for you here what I consider to be a legitimate conundrum. And I want your help with this. What do you do if there is a candidate that you like that is receiving support in a primary from Democrats? If you kind of look below the surface, this is a major story that is happening all across the country. Since Democrats are so flush with cash since Democrats have more money than they know what to do with, Democrats are now playing outwardly and publicly in Republican primaries. And I'll be very honest. This is not as easy as you might think. So on the surface, your initial reaction is probably similar to mine. That I wouldn't want to vote for a candidate that receives support from the Democrat party, but it's actually more complicated than that. So for example, in Pennsylvania, Doug mastriano received major support from the Democrat party. Now, Doug mastriano is no fan of Democrats. In fact, Doug was the Trump endorsed candidate. And Doug mastriano is a fabulous person. So why is it that Democrats are weighing in on Republican primaries, spending huge money when they are candidates that are totally diametrically opposed to their values? Well, the way that they look at it is they want to pick their candidate that they think that they can beat in the general. And these are not small amounts of money. This is happening in congressional races. It's happening in governors races. It's happening in Senate races. Claire mccaskill, who lost to the wonderful Josh hawley in Missouri, said quote, this type of intervention has to be done very carefully.

They hate everything he stands for. Yet they are quiet, they're complicit. And the reality is I want them to be named.

Eric Greitens' Bagage Could Hurt GOP's Chances for 2022 Takeover

"Senator Scott, look, I know Hugh Hewitt is, and I am deeply concerned about the Eric greitens in Missouri. Obviously, you recognize that there are concerns out there, though it doesn't appear that you're going to take a position, which is probably the right thing for you to do in your position. Is there a point where the Senate Republicans intervene and say, hey, hey, we gotta have an intervention here. This guy is just going to bring us down. I think I think that what you're going to see is one of the other candidates is going to win. I think that I think that you can already see it. I mean, Eric Schmidt, great. Billy long. I don't know Mark mccluskey, I know the others. But one of those, one of those will win the primary. I mean, we also have the state's president in the race. Dave, Jeff, I haven't met him yet. But we're going to have a great person to come out of that race. And Missouri is going to be a safe that we're going to win. It's a Republican state. I think Trump went from Trump one by 16 points or something. So they don't even have a candidate, so Claire mccaskill admitted they look, this is not a swing state anymore. Missouri is a Republican state. So I believe I believe we'll have a good can to come out of there and we'll win.

"The Republican nominee because he said I'm not taking anybody else's money I'm not you know I'm my own man Nobody owns me That's what people want to hear And it's something clearly capital said The real irony in it is that Claire mccaskill is from the same state as Harry S. Truman Yeah Yeah And yes Truman said that when a Democrat runs as a Republican the Republican will win every time That's right He said if voters are given a choice between a Republican or a Democrat who acts like a Republican they'll choose the real Republican every time That was the quote I'm pretty sure that that's pretty close to word for word So yeah I'm with the Al Democrats need to learn some lessons Thanks a lot for the call Howard and buffalo New York Howard what's up Hey I was calling about conspiracy theories I have a problem with the concept of conspiracy theories It seems like to me it's a tactic to shut people up So for instance if you said if you have somebody if something is a conspiracy then the person who's saying it becomes crazy and therefore we label a lot of conspiracy therefore we don't have to investigate it anymore Yes I appreciate that because I never heard anybody say that In the media And it was a conspiracy don't exist As a leader why is it we spend 4 billion maybe more than that We got 1516 our intelligence agencies trying to uncover conspiracies against the government against us And yet we tell people conspiracies don't exist They do exist Some are true and some are not You get a sad which are true and which are not You just can't say as a conspiracy I don't know when this became pejorative My.

"The political right, believes at some point during that pregnancy. If it varies for for us as to what that point is, but at some point during that pregnancy Is no longer a lump of cells. It is longer purely a woman's choice. I've always suggested G the man might have a voice in this, too, in most circumstances. And to characterize every single abortion is well. It happened as a result of multiple rapes. That's not every single abortion in this country. Abortions of being used as selective birth control. Okay? Um, take a position that anywhere you wish, but that is much more typical. Then the dire circumstances that described by folks like Claire McCaskill or Joy Reid or even as a matter of fact. Our old favorite from the White House who now has been banished to the studio and seems to have lost his verve. For pretty much anything. The old screamer from the back road, Jim Acosta. Sitting in the anchor chair yesterday. Went off on his own rent and don't forget. The Conservatives in this country are the American Taliban. What will we tell the Afghan refugees who just fled those schools for girls back in their home country? I guess the girls here will have to fill them in. Unfortunately, what we will tell them is that some members of the far right in this country have apparently decided they will resort to intimidation and in some cases, even violence to get what they want. And they could sweep into power faster than the experts thought possible. Sound familiar? Sort of like an American Taliban? Yeah. The right is the American Taliban. Because the right is going to impose all these rules on everybody. Through kind of a far right wing theology. It is starting to look like a combination of theocracy and thug ocracy. The leaders of this mega band movement. People like Marjorie Madison and Tucker. They're not counting on an intelligence failure or lack of planning on your part. They're counting on a lack of courage. To stand up for your rights in this country. Does that ring a bell? The anti immigration, anti Democratic anti women's rights forces of all sought these kinds of changes for years, even decades in this country. Mm. The anti women's rights. So in other words, You can't be pro woman and Was called pro life at the same time. That's not a thing. For folks like Costa. You either have to be in favor of abortion up to when the baby is crowning. Or you can be a pro life. And if you're pro life than your anti woman, because obviously, men never have to worry about that baby crowning. Men never have to worry. About being raped by their spouses multiple times and having an unwanted pregnancy. That they couldn't figure out that they had because they're sexually active. And, gosh, who knows what happens when you're sexually active. So from Joy Reid on MSNBC over to Jim Acosta and Chicken little news Boy. I'll.

"Back. Joe biden has just come off one of the worst weeks of his presence and he has the sinking poll numbers. But before we go to break we want to note the passing of nbc and today show legend. We learned yesterday. That weatherman funny man in every man. Willard scott died this week. Scott was the today show weatherman from nineteen hundred until his semi retirement nineteen ninety-six. It was a big personality on and offscreen. Trust me when you see them in the halls of the dc bureau He always had a big smile his pace he was perhaps best known though. First birthday wishes for people who had turned one hundred and beyond willard. Scott was eighty seven. Welcome back the panel is here you michelle syndrome. Moderator of washington week and pbs washington post contributing columnist matt by republican strategists. Brendan buck and betsy would respond. To politico brendan being the only happy college. Football fan stable This morning -gratulations bulldogs there Someday miami will se caliber But i want to start with Joe biden and where things stand and the democratic party. You makes you cover this white house very closely. Wanna put up this poll ratings here Forty three forty four forty six. We had him at forty nine and it was clear two weeks ago that it was. He was still going down that he hadn't hit bottom. Perhaps this is bottom here. This is the white house. Think they've been afghanistan problem or cova problem while say these numbers underscore a real fact. Which is that presidents try to create agendas but that real life events and circumstances actually defined their agendas and here. You had a president who took such fierce criticism over his withdraw from afghanistan plus the idea that he declared independence of the virus or something close to it talking about the idea of return to normalcy on july fourth. Only to then have americans say we have to put our masks back on. We have to see. Children have surging rates of colbert. So this is the problem that the president is faced with this idea that he has been talking about solving these problems. Round this idea of being a clear-headed experienced president and the and the and the white house saying we're trying to do this. We understand our number. One job is still kobe. But the american people are looking and saying okay. All of this experience means what exactly for my lived experience. Add to that of course the economics of this right. We have to remember that the economy is the thing that is driving this and original sin of this pandemic was polarization and lies and that is leading people to get the vaccine. That's also leading people to die of the virus and take the wormers and now the president and white house officials. Tell me that it really is about explaining to people that science evolves explaining the people that challenges are part of the job and then these numbers are really challenging for him. You know it's interesting. i'm going to put up. Poll of just the independent voters. Because that's this is who's moving the only people that move down. Our polarized climate democrats. Don't move up or down. Republicans don't move up or down right. They just the color jersey. It's this small slice of independence. You can see his approval rating sitting at thirty six percent now in april. It was over fifty. And that's they're the maybe they're calling the competency voters they. Actually they react to what's happening. They're not happy. With how cove. It's going whether it's biden's fault or not. He's the guy that wheel. It's a nightmare number for the white house. I talked with republican. Strategist about this whole situation yesterday. And what that person said. Is that afghanistan that horror in a vacuum probably would not have significantly damaged. Biden's pull numbers the way we've seen them change over the last few months but the point of this particular strategist made is that. It's the totality of everything. That's happened since april. It's co- vid it's inflation. There's some evidence. Voters are concerned about the immigration system and it gives republicans an opening to argue. That things are spiraling out of control for the white house. Whether or not that's accurate. This number kind of tells you what you need to know. At least in terms of the way that this administration and this white house are communicating to the american people and to these persuadable independence. How exactly they're governing and their ability to shape circumstances rather than be shaped by them. You don't match biden's campaign was defined by this was speaking. Chaos trump was chaos. Yeah i'm not going to be chaos. We're going to be science focused. We're going to be this. And i wonder if it's if might say maybe. The expectations are too high that he could somehow govern a polarized environment. Well it wasn't going to stay where he was and independence. We've seen the last couple. Several administrations independence will come back to their general skeptical outlook. I don't think this is a panic number. It's not a good number. it's not what they want. They got a lot of time. You know things are going to change. And i think look what he's doing. It's important to your point right. He was elected in a very wide margin because he did represent a return to normalcy and dignity and directness and honesty in the presidency. That's that's what people want to. You held himself out of some return to stability and and and cantor. He has gone out throughout this and he has spoken directly to the american people several times and taking responsibility. He's explaining things. I think that's gonna stand him well over time if that were eroding man. I think you might see a more permanent sly but you know..

"We need calm right now. We don't need another january six at the supreme court. The supreme court knows how to handle these issues. And we'll be doing it quickly. I believe and then you're gonna have look at ken paxton. Who's the attorney. General hobie defending miss. He has he lost in court on obamacare. He lost in three days. The supreme court kicked him to the curb on his bogus trump. things remember. There were a lot of democrats saying. Oh these judges uphold trump trump even said it. What did they do. They kicked him to the curb. These are judges who follow the law. And that's why they will take out. These cases look at what the establish law is and have them briefed. And i think since the the judge in texas has already said planned. Parenthood can go forward. This is going to go through the normal process. Big picture question though in the republican party can you have governor hogan's position he's personally pro-life but he essentially allowed pro-choice legislation passed. Can you have that position and be viable in a republican primary. Well look i think governor hogan has been very pro-life throughout the cova. Keisuke brought people together. He's got his state vaccinated and he is very worked. Worked very easily understood that his bill would be overridden. I mean the bill if he had vetoed it so yes i do believe because everybody understands their different positions on this which is why instead of having extremes drive this from both the democrat right. I mean let. Claire was attacked by. Ao see In two thousand eighteen when she pointed out that abortion and guns were polarizing the country. And that's why she lost. Nancy pelosi was attacked by planned parenthood in two thousand sixteen when she said. I'm not for abortion on demand for the whole nine months when we were discussing the twenty eight and then come back and apologize to planned parenthood. We have to be able to discuss this. I got attacked an over the counter. A birth control bill that republican women's supported and it wasn't just opposed by right wing man. It was opposed by planned parenthood. Who didn't want the competition in the market. Fortunately technology is taken that over and you couldn't get it online claire. Is there a reasonable middle ground for the democratic party on. It's hard to say. Sometimes there's a middle ground on abortion but the public seems there is a middle ground. There which is they don't want it Completely banned and they don't want it without some limitations. What is the middle ground. Look like in a place like missouri. Well all the noise is going to be on the far extremes. And i listen i have great respect for barbara comstock and who she is and how she held off. Its but women of america or not calm right now. The supreme court had an opportunity to stay this bill. If it was so bad all they had to do is stay and they didn't and that is telling and that's why women are not calm right now. They are very upset over the idea that this is going to be allowed in any state in the united states. So is there middle ground. Yeah and and it. The more extreme. The republican party keeps becoming and the next thing they're missouri says they're gonna copy it. They're gonna probably do this on immigration. They're gonna have vigilantes going out and with a tip line. You can get fifty thousand dollars if you turn an employer who has hired somebody who's illegal that's going to happen in less. We do something to stop this extremist some in the name of vigilantism in our court system the republican party that used to hate trial lawyers wilderness using the court bad policy and it's bad law if republicans are gonna be todd republicans. Clara's right they will not succeed. But we have a lot more. Larry hogan's people like jamie harare butler whose pro-life in the leader on helping women with tough pregnancies and and kids who have disabilities is the kind of pro-life community that i've always worked with and i think that's the one that needs to stand up. I will say this in the spirit of our polarization broadcast today. Claire mccaskill barbara comstock. You guys appearing And a very high minded discussion. Appreciate both of you. Thank you when we come.

"A good sunday morning. The us enters this labor day weekend suffering from two viruses coverted and polarization. It is not an exaggeration to say that we are more divided than at any time. Perhaps since the nineteen sixties and frankly maybe since the civil war as one of our guests today put it used to be divided over issues like abortion guns. We're kind of used to those divisions. We still are divided on those two issues but now we can't even agree about covert or january six covert has become an mri of america's soul. Who would have imagined that masks wearing or refusing them would become such a political statement. This morning we're going to take a look. At how why. We're so divided primarily through the lens of two issues one is covert where the seven day average of infections has risen to more than one hundred sixty one thousand driven largely by vaccine hesitancy and refusal. The other is abortion. The supreme court leading staff at least for now that restrictive texas law that has left abortion opponents believing row could finally be overturned and pro choice advocates fearing they may be right with the country increasingly divided by geography race age education. The question we're asking this morning. We have political leadership to meet this treacherous political moment. People are enraged on both sides of the issue. And it's completely tearing this community apart. The political divide has become deadly with vaccine hesitancy driven by misinformation and the politicizing the virus leading to the harassment of healthcare workers hospitalizations and deaths escalating the rhetoric the bullying fill like some weird twilight zone. Why we're still going over wearing masks. Just fifty three percent of americans are fully vaccinated. Despite the nation's early start that ray trails more than thirty other countries as covert hospitalizations in-depth rise red states with the lowest vaccination rates are driving the surge. Yada help me get to people vaccinated we. We are suffering the most at a time when it is the most preventable in a recent. Nbc news poll just fifty five percent of republicans said they were vaccinated compared to eighty eight percent of democrats among republicans who said they support donald trump over the republican party. The number was even lower. Forty six percent. Seventy nine percent of democrats favor of acting requirement. Seventy five percent of republicans oppose it. Do you regret not getting the vaccine. Absolutely i a hundred percent regret. What were some of the things you were hearing that the vaccine was diarrheal vaccine that it was like a tracking chip the gover- shied us misinformation has spread rapidly on conservative media. A plan is now underway to use vaccine mandates to take your guns virtually everything. They told us about the kobe vaccine was wrong. And i'm social media. What's in the vaccine. Gimme.

"Instructions for how to come. Ninety seven percent of the people we communicated with got to the airport and got out on planes so make you may have heard the president say they got ninety percent of the americans who wanted to leave out of the country. The white house. Lear updated the transcript president misspoke and they say it was ninety eight percent of americans who wanted to get out. Were able to leave so what the president is saying here. And what jake sullivan is saying. Is that these. Americans were given every chance to leave the country back since march that they were giving warning after warning and in fact their argument goes the people who remain the americans who remained in afghanistan. Are there by choice. We know that's not entirely true. There are passport-holders who still want to get out there. Dual citizenship people who want to leave that country but they say by and large most of the american still there want to be there willie as part of what we heard there publicly. Yesterday we were also getting behind the scenes. The receipt says the kids say they were showing these emails that have been sent over the course of months to those based in afghanistan describing an incredible operation over the last two and a half weeks to do everything they can to find americans who are in afghanistan to identify them and then to ask them three simple questions. Where are you. Do you want to leave and do you need help. Getting to the airport. A white house official. I spoke to yesterday. Said that of the six thousand that were safely evacuated. The hundred to two hundred that remain are the most complicated cases. These are people who obviously waited till the last minute. In some cases these are people with dual citizenship with deep connections to afghanistan and also those who as part of the evacuation efforts as part of the interactions they had with embassy personnel were communicating that they wanted not just to leave and have their immediate families come with them but extended families and that was just not something that the us could accommodate so by definition of white house. Officials were stressing behind the scenes yesterday. That those who remain the small number where by definition that most complicated the most nuance cases the hardest to identify but the president once again said for those who remain and those who do want to leave there is no deadline and so they're insisting that yes it's now a diplomatic effort but there will continue to be efforts made to get anybody who is in afghanistan and wants to leave out of that country. Yeah the president reiterating that promise that leaves out unfortunately all the afghan wartime allies that we heard about from so many veterans and this show yesterday that they are privately scrambling behind the scenes to get out of the country. Nbc's mike memory at the white house. Thanks much joining us now former. Us senator now nbc news and msnbc political analysts. Claire mccaskill and white house editor for politico. Sam stein good morning to you. Both claire i'll begin with you. What did you think of the president's performance. Yesterday his argument the speech he made in defense says i said he went by point-by-point and met the criticism he's received a lot of it from democrats by the way about his handling of this evacuation over the last couple of weeks. What did you think well. I thought it was slightly defensive. But brutally honest i think he laid out exactly why he made this decision and why he's standing behind it in many ways. I found it refreshing. You know nobody really believed that. The afghan government would melt away as quickly as it did and that complicated this. But he's right about one thing willie. You don't ever announcer leaving the country and not have rush to the exits in that rush to the exits whether it was at a bar for air force base or whether it was at the kabul airport was always going to be really dangerous for the americans trying the military trying to process that because they became sitting ducks for suicide bombers and. That's exactly what happened. I thought it was very interesting that he made very clear to america that we're not done with isis and i want to remind everyone that our military has been fighting isis and al qaeda and other terrorist across the globe effectively Since nine eleven. And i think our country will continue to do that. Sam if you look at the polling you've got some new numbers to show us. The american people a majority of them are with the president on the decision to withdraw from afghanistan. He's made no secret. this is something he wanted. He talked about it as a candidate for president. He talked about it since he got into office. And now he says. I delivered on that. Promise it's the execution of that withdrawal. That's less popular with the american public yet. Mean despite everything that's happened to pass three weeks the public still in our poll supports the withdrawal fifty percent forty percent. That's political more console. It is on the execution where they are soured on the withdrawal. I would just say this. I thought biden speech while defensive for sure you know to me. And i'd be curious about what senator kaskel. Thanks about. This which is to me. Read like someone who wanted to sort of the loop on post nine eleven political era to lead into the idea that you don't need to be a show in muscular abroad in to be effective in that the real problem with the afghanistan war was not in withdrawal but the execution and the rationale for getting in first place and you know biden obviously has been around for a while but he was there and a major player in the post nine eleven politics and he saw the degree to which national security decisions can be used politically against democrats in when i saw that speech yesterday when i heard it to me what really stood out with this idea..

"Officer harry done delivered shocking and painful testimony about the vicious racism of the trump mob who donald trump set to attack the capital. The testimony came with no warning today as it was broadcast live. But we can now warn you that this testimony includes racist language attributed to the trump mob. I told him just leave the capital and response. They yellowed no man. This is our house. President trump invited us here. We're here to stop the steel. Joe biden is not the president. Nobody voted for joe biden. I'm a law enforcement officer. And i do my best to keep politics out of my job but in this circumstance i responded. Well i voted for joe biden. Is my vote not count. Am i know. Body that prompted a torrent of racial epithets. One woman in a pink maggot shirt. Yelled you here. That guys is nigger. Voted for joe biden. Then the crowd. Perhaps twenty people joined in screaming. Boom fucking nigger. No one had ever ever called me a nigger while wearing the uniform of a capital police officer in the days following the attempted insurrection. Other black officer shared with me their own stories of racial abuse on january. Six one officer told me he had never in his entire forty years of life been called a nigger to his face and that streak ended on january six joining us. Now claire mccaskill former democratic senator from missouri an eugene robinson associated editor and pulitzer prize winning columnist for the washington post both far msnbc political analysts and gene of the officer done wanted us to hear that language he could have coded it he could have a kind of whited out the words away and the committee wanted us to hear that specific language. That was used. It is now in the congressional record. It is their decisions. Been made at different times during the day to bleep out some of those words which i completely understand but there is a unique power in those words that I think the committee was i personally. Think the committee was right to want washington and the country to hear absolutely committed with right because that was the reality that was real They didn't treat done even the way they treated the other officers through. They tried to kill but he was not just the them. He was and apologies to msnbc listeners but he was to them a nigger. That's what that's what he was.

"As i mentioned this is a this is a real milestone ballroom. Has been the almost the hallmark of us military presence in afghanistan for these last twenty years. It's where it's been one of the largest if not the largest space it's been a relatively safe airfield. It's the fact that the us turned it over to afghanistan. It really shows that this is the close to the very very close to the end of the us military presence there in afghanistan. All right courtney kuby thank you so much we appreciate your reporting gene robinson. This is obviously a move. That's unpopular with many in the pentagon unpopular with. I would say the majority of the us foreign policy establishment. They're rising fears of civil war in afghanistan rising fears of an ultimate taliban takeover. But this is something that if you read the tea leads. Joe biden was ready to get out of afghanistan a long time ago. He opposed barack obama's surge about a decade ago This was regardless of what the general s- thought. This seemed inevitable. I i mean you can. You can imagine that if we had waited another five years or another ten years to take the step we'd be having the same discussion and the same fears The because the taliban is still there right. They live there. They're going to be there. They're always going to be a presence in In afghanistan or at least for the foreseeable future and it is I think we're going step back At some point i am. We're going to look and we're going to say what did what did we accomplish in afghanistan. But what did we actually do. We manage to to to slide a regime that had harboured al-qaeda remember that's why we went in there in the first place and and the and the people had harboured the people plan nine eleven And we did that with relative dispatch and then the the remaining nineteen years of our our involvement. There i. maybe. I'm just kind of looking at the glass half empty this morning but but one does wonder. What did we actually accomplish. What did our blood and treasure actually purchase and afghanistan. And that's not. That's not an easy answer. i don't have an easy so gene. Let me just follow up on that briefly. It's a great question a question that many people are asking. It's something we could've asked when we left iraq and when we left iraq overnight of course we saw exactly what we were accomplishing their. We've been in germany since nineteen forty five following world war two. We've been in korea since one thousand nine hundred fifty to stop the north from invading the south and keep that democracy intact. I guess the question that joe vines going to have to answer. And policymakers left to answer is. Are they responsible for what comes next. When four thousand five thousand troops may have prevented mass chaos in afghanistan. Well you know. That's i think that's that's a good question on the other hand It's hard to compare afghanistan with germany or japan or south korea with societies that That that did develop into work early. democracies that participated in in in on the world stage in a responsible way That that that managed to to govern their spaces there within their borders in a in an effective way And and so yes we the. Us presence i think was was certainly a factor in that but the us presence more To to guard against potential threats rather than to nation build the nation building in in germany japan and and correa are you believe is really really successful. The nation building in afghanistan which we never really wanted to acknowledge that we were trying to do and therefore never really tried to do all out was not successful. And i don't think we built a successful state. That's going to be another germany. Another japan another career. Claire mccaskill one thing we can say is that american troops men and women who bravely gone over. There have prevented another attack on american soil over the last twenty years so we should point that out. You're united states. Senator for twelve years during the height of this war in afghanistan in terms of what comes next. We're already seeing it. The taliban is retaking ground. They carried out that school bombing. And may that killed eighty five people in west kabul. So that's a preview of what is coming here. What are your feelings. What are your thoughts. What's your position on this withdrawal as we watch it. Take place overnight at bagaram. Well it was inevitable if you think about the country of afghanistan. Let me pick up. Where jean left off the the reason that the nation building and primarily the the billions and billions and billions of dollars. We have spin in afghanistan. Not only do we try to rebuild their infrastructure we also tried to install instill rule of law to train police officers to train their military and what people need to understand that unlike japan and germany and south korea. This is a country that really didn't have any gdp if it wasn't for our money. This is not a wealthy country. This is a country that is not rich with natural resources or a strong education system. This is not a country that was ever prepared to stand on its own without america propping it up so this is going to be some. There's gonna be some bloodshed. Of course there will be civil strife between the factions within afghanistan. I think the military strongest argument over the years about staying there was really as much about pakistan is it was about afghanistan. People need to remember. Pakistan has nuclear weapons and pakistan is You know there is. There are elements of the taliban and other bad guys that have migrated into pakistan. So this is always going to be a sticky wicket in terms of this part of the world because the factionalization very strong religious beliefs in the middle east. But i always said we have wasted. Just a ton of money in afghanistan trying to do something that the military just didn't want to admit they couldn't do. We'll see i guess this is again. And we're we're all going to have differences of opinion here but i think the men and women that served over there did great things over the past twenty years and sacrificed greatly and they prevented another attack on the united states. That's why we went in there in the first place. They did the best they can do with a country. That is dexter filkins. Sold as well over a decade ago was many parts of it. Seemed like it was still stuck in the second century. And guess the question is and this is a question for foreign policy. Experts and for for advisers to presidents to debate and members in the senate and the house debate but is the united states capable of keeping twenty five hundred three thousand four thousand troops in afghanistan if that prevents a complete meltdown of a country. That was actually used to watch attacks on america on september eleventh. The same thing clear could be asked again about iraq. Would it have been worth it.

"Mark and Rob. Just heard from my lawyer friend Joe. Who would never, ever use Esquire after his name in a Twitter bio. Now we brought this this we got on this topic, but how you becoming a square because there's someone you're about to read a tweet from. That's Joe. Yeah, that's why I don't know. I'm saying the last segment All right. Some left the lunatic that you're about to read a tweet from. She has Esquire, the end of her name, and I pondered the question How I could be robbed Kendall Esquire, and you can't because it's he wrote Esquire just means you're a lawyer, typically that you can practice law. Although he has seen people that have finished law school but didn't pass the bar, even use it on. Does people clearly suck? You know what I mean? He didn't say that. I'm saying that, he says, I've never used it after My name except on formal legal documents, so I'm sure it's probably necessary on some legal documents. But if you're a person who puts it after your name in your Twitter handle, right, like I automatically hate you. You want everyone to know what you are. It's like it's like I wouldn't put Rob Kendall broadcaster right or whatever, like prestigious title comes with broadcaster like if there was some sort of title that came with that. Can you imagine what we used to? What's the What's the awards that they have here in Indianapolis? Doctor Spectrum wars and on my Twitter bio free several years of you remember, I had produced over the Spectrum award winning chicks on the rights right? And even we didn't talk about that. So so The whole reason this came up is because there is this woman, Pam Keith Esquire on Twitter. Who's her whose claim to fame is that she lost. In the general election when she was trying to become the Democrat from the 18th congressional district in Florida. And so she lost to Brian, Mass. I think, and that is the first thing that she lists in her. Her profile is in all caps. Democratic nominee Florida 18th Congressional district. Can you imagine you're a loser You're bragging about not winning. No wonder America's in the shape it's in. Pathetic. So here is what she's tweeted. And the reason is came up because we were in the last segment. We were talking about this impeachment and Rand Paul and his whole point of order. And so her response to Rand Paul being so invested in, you know, making sure everybody knows what a sham this impeachment is. She wrote the following and I quote. I think DOJ needs to do a deep dive on Rand. Paul. I have serious questions about his interactions with Russian oligarchs and his constant peddling of Russian propaganda. I would not be surprised if there is a Home more, Um, Pratt. I don't know what this word is, and I don't think she spelled it right because someone questioned her about the spelling of the It's kompromat, and she was like tomorrow, Matt on him or if he played a role on January, 6th, if proven he needs to go. Oh, so she's out of thin air. She's creating a narrative that is literally out of thin air. She's just pulling this out of the clouds and putting it out there into the world so that people grasp onto it. And then all of a sudden you'll see tweets floating around saying, Oh, my God! Rand! Paul is colluding with Russia. This is how these things work. This is disinformation in action. So a couple things one Rand. Paul is an actual doctor, so we can call him Dr Rand Paul, and he doesn't even go by that he does not to Rand. Paul knows about lunatics taking over places because almost got killed by the BLM antifa people in Washington. Was it what was within minutes of probably losing his life if the police Hadn't showed up so clearly not a violent guy because he sat there and took it very peacefully and three my dad threw this out years ago and occasionally ever like you think back on your parents and you go. That's brilliant, looking like the time you don't run you that's brilliant. I'm or worse in there one time watching television. I don't know Fox news MSNBC and he just looks at me goes Why did they have all these losers on here? Look, if they knew anything, they would have won the election yet. The people who lose like Claire McCaskill on television telling the winners what they're doing wrong. Why do we listen to these people? I don't know. Let me see how many followers this horrible woman have 122,000 people follow beating you? Yeah. All the way. But she I don't know how many did you get purged? Let me look and see where we are. We had 101 102 and a half 1000 before the big purge, And now we're 84 a half 102 and a half and 80 for cents. 18,000. Wow. That's up, but she didn't lose $18. She didn't because she and she's the one that's spreading disinformation. Yeah, that's choir. Yes, Esquire. Okay, Next, we need to talk about the Linda Tripp memoir. And then we've gotten a lot of voice mails from people who wanted a weigh in on the dogs smelling you heard you could save big when you bundle home and auto with progressive.

At RNC, Republicans paint dark picture of future if Trump loses

"Republicans spent most of their convention evening one painting, a dark picture of life. If a Democrat specifically, one named Joe Biden wins the White House back with us tonight to talk about what it is. We have just witnessed Claire mccaskill former Democratic senator from the Great State of Missouri, which might have been referenced once or twice during Tonight's program, our own Lawrence O'Donnell host the ten pm eastern our on this network, of course, and David Jolly former Republican member of Congress from the State of Florida who has since left the house and his political party but he has not turned his back on the state of Florida clear I'd like to begin with you. In terms of tone and substance, and the the kind of takeaway feeling you got after a night like tonight. You know this is the presidency of lies in this was a couple hours of lies. Mostly about Joe Biden is and his policies but also lies about Kobe and lies about healthcare and is you know the thing that rovings it really struck me Brian was the nerve they had of telling immigrants stories tonight Nikki Haley talking about being her parents in immigration Maximo Alvarez from Cuba. Who came here in an asylum situation from Cuba seeking freedom, and then maybe the most unbelievable is all the two women from Guatemala. Selling honey. You have to understand that children from Waddell Malo were ripped from their families arms. and. On purpose this is this is a presidency that has shut the door slam the door on people like this, and so the idea I mean I can't decide which was weirder them having the mccloskey's Vilnai's black people or and then having Tim Scott doing the keynote or a presidency that has been so bad on immigration trying to feature immigrants as part of his story. David Jolly. What do you recognize from your former party we heard. Kimberly Guilfoil. Speech in an empty room tonight saying that Joe Biden is out to destroy America her life partner Dj Tj. Trotted out a new nickname. Beijing Biden tonight because apparently. Nicknames are genetic So, wh. What did you make of what you saw tonight? I bring a different set of ears to this perhaps than senator mccaskill, just give him my my past partisan affiliation and what I would say is from a messaging standpoint, there were some very effective moments and I think maximum Maximo Alvarez speech was ineffective one I think the policy elements of Tim. Scott's were effective I thought Vernon Jones the democratic state REP from Georgia at a very effective message and to certain extent Herschel. Walker. But but then there are two things that kind of trample on that I as you mentioned is is kind of the Colt like narrative. That is all things trump for Matt, gaetz saying MS thirteen moving in next door to Charlie kirks screed on terrorism to Kim, Gulf Oil's. american-carnage reductions if you will all of those elements trampled on what would have otherwise been a fairly normal message to expect from an RMC. But the other thing it requires is for you to suspend the past three years of reality to the senators point the separating moms from children, the abandonment, of NATO, a president who was impeached for trying to cheat the American people in the upcoming election president who want. Release his tax returns who's been named as a co-conspirator in a federal crime in the Southern District of New York it requires the listener to suspend all of those moments that we know are actually the real trump administration and the trump presidency. So unfortunately, look, there were many moments made for TV that we're effective, but they will be lost in the greater trump. Trump is a cult that will ultimately define this convention. Lawrence O'Donnell a bit of darkness on the edge of town in the midst of a pandemic, an unmistakable message that they're coming for you. That's one of the messages and Brian. We try to evaluate the effectiveness of a night like this or any that is this week we have to ask ourselves how long or how much of this did the undecided voter watch and the underside voter watch with very little of these things and some usually they don't watch it at all. So it has zero effect. If all it's doing is reinforcing the votes you already house and so if you think about what was said, tonight, that could appeal to someone who wasn't already voting for Donald. Trump you got some of Tim. Scott's a speech I agree with David about that but not the part the part where Tim Scott suddenly. As if almost to say, I, don't really mean this started attacking Joe Biden said the job behind his ambition is quote a socialist utopia applied that to Joe Biden, and so the speech starts to become nonsense when when he does that the only person I heard actually mentioned something the Donald Trump would do in a second term was donald trump junior and the only thing he mentioned Donald Trump would want to do in a second term is to end the payroll tax end the funding for social security and we learned today from Social Security, Trust Fund that that means Social Security would be unable to pay benefits. In twenty twenty three and I just want to alert the audience in the past you've heard people use the phrase social security is project projected to go bankrupt at some date distant in the distant future. What that always meant was social security will only be able to hey benefits based on the amount of money it takes in that week, which is to say, would have paid about seventy five cents of each dollar that it owed. This idea would leave social security paying zero zero of each dollar that it does and that is the only trump idea for the second term that was actually mentioned tonight that I heard.

The state of play in New Hampshire and beyond

"Democrats rather have a catastrophic week they began on Monday when the democratic Iowa caucuses turned into a display of shocking incompetence Democrats unlock I stay were unable to tell America who won and who came in second the only certainty was about who is the real loser that was Joe Biden who finished fourth now polls show Bernie Sanders with a comfortable lead in New Hampshire the next day tomorrow coming up next week I am sure it means that Democrats are beginning to panic Bernie Sanders is believed by many of them to be electable party veterans all used to liberal and center left candidates are now beginning to speak out against the socialist Democrat Bernie Sanders by Tuesday evening some Iowa numbers at chuckled and there was a leader but no winner Biden I repeat puts forth with impeachment still technically undecided on Tuesday night Donald Trump entered the house chamber to give his state of the union address the state of our union is stronger than ever before impeachment never came up but what the president did say appealed to the majority of Americans a healthy majority of Americans of all much of what he said will be remembered by those who pay close attention it was Nancy Pelosi who stole the show with a petulant act following trump's words of god bless you and god bless America thank you very much hearing those words a speaker of the house rose tore up the signed print a copy of the speech the president just delivered as she stood out of my sight mine the president but for all of America to see she did it for all the world to see that it was not a good look for the leader of the Democratic Party the morning after the speech I discuss not Nancy moment and much more with Georgia senator David Perdue senator I thought it was historic state of the union speech last night I thought it was historic tantrum by a petulant speaker pelo three what did you think about last night but Dr yeah I agree with you you're a student of history but I I T. I think last night was a historic speech it built on the the successes of his first three years in late at a farm plan for a vision for America the last five minutes that speech I think we're really his story but the Democrats such as close to the Democrats showed exactly why they should be in charge I mean how Petula can you be to not stand up for a child and in grammar school was gonna get a choice to go to school and how about the Tuskegee American hero they would even stand for him it was really insulting for America it was astonishing in many respects the touching Mrs you it does not like long speeches she'd never watched either George W. bush a president Obama but she's military kid so she came in to stand up for the general and for the for military families and for the widow and the son of the lost soldier I could not believe I actually cannot believe senator produ the Nancy Pelosi tore up a speech that honor to Tuskegee airmen and all those other heroes well it just shows their their don't care about the future American I want power and we see it and everything this purely partisan political process I just ran in this impeachment process speech tons about that they don't want the truth they just want power and Schumer talk about it all the time you talk about on your show I mean what they want to do with America is taken and regressed back to what has been proven to fail around the world of the last century really I got to play for you a few quotes about what was said last night this is Chris Matthews on MSNBC Democrat cut forty three Chris Matthews I think he wore I came from the like the speech tonight I think regular people well not with us see the Smalls the corny this still see it but don't like it because it's all good stuff whatever purpose it had and I look at something about I watched closely because I really respect like most Mister I was very the way she held me to win the stand when to apply it was almost a normal almost entirely the tributes to people to individual people she always felt that was the right thing to do especially the one quite out I'm right there one why don't this is van Jones on CNN another hard left person cut number forty four and and the thing about it is and I think that we we got to wake up folks do the whole bubble thing that goes on with the will he said **** nations there for all but you will get him forever that ain't necessarily so and I think what you're gonna see him do is say I you like my rhetoric the look at my results look at my record to black people now this is Jake tapper on CNN cut forty five okay we've never really seen a scholarship given which is what the president did with the with the young girl from Philadelphia we've seen the type of thing where a war hero like the Tuskegee airmen brigadier general McGee we seen that honored and it was a lovely moment to have a one hundred year old does he here's Chris Cuomo on CNN four wheeling poignant moments that came I don't know if you saw them but you should go online and look and I'm gonna talk to you about it more later on the president in that speech tonight celebrated with this country is about from one set of moments are finally Claire McCaskill on your former colleague senator produ on MSNBC cut number fifty of course the flow state tearing up the street I can argue that that maybe wasn't the best idea it you know I think America once everyone to get along and get things done but what you know when I can play a montage of left left left left left and they're all applauding the president you know we had a home run senator produ I'm shocked I mean I really am but what he did was historic I say it again I mean he did mention impeachment once he rose above that he showed great disappoint he showed vision for America but here's the difference American people we built America because everybody out there in the real world view like you and others know how to get results the political partisanship here is not focused on results and president trump is trying to break through that that's why I think he's going to do extremely well this fall at Lana is the home of some great talk radio Neal Bortz had many disagreements over the years but he's a friend we visited with President Bush in the oval one time is phone went off one of the funniest moments I've ever seen a withering look from the president at Neil Sean Hannity had a lot of great years in Atlanta you know Rush Limbaugh personally I say he built the mall in which the rest of us live in I hope you stood in a plot in one rush got that last night I couldn't see last night but it was moving it was emotional every family in America that struggles with cancer saluted him what did you think of that moment well I had dinner with him a few weeks ago in Florida and I was in what would this be to that was a total surprise last night to me I think that homeowners a great American hero he did go out first and blaze a trail to tell the truth and that's what you and many others are doing now and that's what's gonna win today just look at the numbers of conservative talk radio out there and their numbers are going up in the liberal left numbers are going down so I mean I think the middle part of America is leading and showing how California New York Illinois have totally failed their governance and now they want to export that to the federal government I think most people in America see what trump is doing and they certainly recognizes result this present you said on the top he's done more for the Arab American community and in America any other president since Lincoln I think Britt slough editor of the National Review discuss the state of the union while on Chicago's morning answer with Salem stand problem Amy Jacobson that will settle somewhere then people are safe and she's the woman of the hour and she just couldn't find any truth than from say the union address that's why if you threw a tantrum yeah well the whole thing about Nancy Pelosi she's popular supposedly this calm cool calculating presence to his genius is getting under trump skin and she showed her deep irritation last night does incredibly test headed yesterday I think trump said of shook her hand at the beginning I like grace notes but they're ripping up the the speech yeah he should have known this moment was gonna come when she started to impeach shop in the first place that eventually he'd be acquitted or be near quit all and he'd be this majestic setting and she'd have to sit by back there like a prop and behave herself and she and she couldn't handle it they were routine they were rooting against America I mean when they talked about alone unemployment numbers for African Americans and minorities why not stand up and clap for that because they they can't abide anything this president says even when it's things that normally everyone would welcome and that's one thing I think it's it's really notable about the speech the ratio of outrage it caused among the opposition you know on Twitter on cable TV and in the hall and the way most people receive it I think it's a vast you know because I'm sitting there is conservative once the limit limit government event basketball on those sort of things there's almost nothing for me is a very center of speech right planting trees going to Mars you know the research to support extremely premature babies and that was a really moving moment I'm among many from the gallery and so most people that the second strike in this on reasonable as striking as entirely reasonable or welcome so they can deal why did the speaker house can happen rip up the speech this is what we have one listener described trump this way after the St unit rasta Nancy pollicis little snack and I thought this was pretty good he he's like human so the impact the fall he he brings out in people who they truly are in sort of a remarkable way they can't even help themselves and as you're describing Nancy Pelosi this cool calm collected this passionate you know Jeff feel general and but then he throws a temper tantrum and then she doubles down on explaining the temper tantrum in a way that portrayed her as venal and petty in about her where you just said the president give a speech about you in this country and its future and that's not a pretty good contra that's not a very good contrast for the Democrats yeah and it just when when people try and think they're reacting to trump intro and a champion way

How the midterm elections could shape tech policy

How the midterm elections could shape tech policy

"This. Marketplace podcast is brought to you by Colgate. University now in its bicentennial year. Colgate university is celebrating a proud tradition of intellectual rigor at it's beautiful campus in central New York. The deadline for early decision this November fifteenth. Learn more at Colgate dot EDU. Net neutrality broadband policy privacy, the midterms could be major for tech from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy Hollywood. I managed to avoid it for two whole days, but the mid-term elections actually could have a big impact on the tech industry because the backlash against big tech is one of the only issues out there that is actually bipartisan and on top of that a couple of newly elected legislators have specifically made tech part of their agenda Beit net neutrality privacy regulations or even whether platforms are suppressing political voices. So let's dig into this in quality assurance the segment where we take a deeper look at a big tech story is he lebowski is a senior writer for wired covering, politics and national affairs. She says both sides of the aisle have been considering ways to regulate big tech in recent years. The problem is anytime you have a split congress. When you have Democrats running the house and Republicans running the Senate and a Republican in the White House. You're going to have a hard time getting anything done. So just imagine the amount of gridlock. We're about to head into. And then you see are Democrats really going to want to hand. Donald Trump a major piece of legislation terrain in the tech industry. When in so many ways they're trying to act as a check on his administration who are some of the incoming legislators that could at least try to have a hand in shaping policy. Well, there's one incoming legislator who will be familiar to the tech industry because she was formerly a member of the house that Marsha Blackburn in Tennessee. She is sort of infamous for her ties to the telecom industry, which has often put her at odds with the tech industry on issues, like network neutrality and privacy. We also have Josh Hawley who unseated Claire mccaskill he was the attorney general in Missouri. And he as attorney general launched investigations into Google Facebook Uber equifax and a lot of it had to do with data privacy issues. A lot of it had to do with antitrust issues. I think you could expect him to continue to bring those issues to congress. And then the big race. Everybody was watching was Ted CNN. Cruise beta a work race baiter work was heavily backed by members of the tech industry. Ted Cruz has sort of been a needle in the side of the tech industry. So I think you do see this growing coalition of anti tech voices on the right? You know, it's interesting because congress in particular, the Senate hasn't always been the most well informed bunch when it comes to tech. And I wonder with all of these kind of young up and coming candidates getting elected to the house. Do you think that there's a possibility that the conversations about technology could get more sophisticated? That's a really interesting question. So on the first hand, I'll say that. I think members of the Senate are learning. But I think there's something to that. I think there's something to having people in the Senate who really understand at a fundamental level technology. I've even heard from people, you know, as critical as they are of Marsha Blackburn. And as fearful as they are of her being in the Senate, you know, at least she is somebody who understands these issues, and so maybe that's a starting point. Is he lebowski is a senior writer for wired covering, politics and national affairs. She also said we shouldn't get our hopes up for net neutrality legislation coming out of congress anytime soon, but a federal privacy law has an outside chance. And now for some related links after twenty thousand employees walked out of Google last week to protest how the company has handled sexual misconduct claims yesterday, Google agreed to some of the demands those employees are making the big one, it's ending forced arbitration. So when people report sexual harassment, the company won't insist that such claims be handled internally and more importantly, it can't prevent victims from taking their claims to court. All right back to the midterms for a minute. I already threated about this. But I think it's worth repeating even if congress doesn't get a lot tech year after the midterms. It is definitely getting scienc- year ports. That's a thing. Of course, had a nice right up on all the scientists who are coming into congress who just can't help but make it smarter and actually politicos morning tech newsletter. Yesterday had a super useful rundown. On key staffers who will probably be handling changes to telecom and tech policy. Assuming anything makes it through our divided. Congress and remember last week when we talked to Salesforce, CEO, Mark Benny off about prophecy in San Francisco the tax on big businesses that will raise money to help the homeless. Well, it passed and the ringer has a really good right up on how it's really a referendum on big tech. Basically, San Francisco just can't wait to stick it to this industry.

Takeaways from the Midterm Election

Jay Sekulow

Takeaways from the Midterm Election

"Here's the Democrats got control of the house of representatives. And that's a win for the Democrats. The Republicans gained seats in the United States Senate could be as many as fifty five that is also a win for the Republicans and a win for the president because he ultimate firewall in. Any of these issues is the United States Senate? That's the cooling off point. They used to call it. And that's how I view it. So the Democrats won the house the state wide races tended to go to the Republicans. The Democrats picked up some governorships as well. And the twenty twenty campaign starts, that's how I view, but I'm gonna I'm gonna go right around the horn here and kind of get everybody's you'll start with. What is your takeaway from last night number one? The Republicans gained seats in the Senate. What does that mean, it means that judicial? Appointments will move forward under this administration. In other words, the president will be able to appoint and confirm judges who believe in the rule of law believe in the constitution that will indeed be his enduring legacy. Number two. There's a challenge that awaits democratic leadership in the house will they work with the president on bipartisan issues, which advance the interest of working and middle class Americans. Or will they focus on opposition? And investigations that question is yet to be answered. Well, and also Jay you're going around the horn, if a president and the president can can issue executive orders, and they can be changed by the next president legislation enacted by congress can also be changed. But judges have lifetime influence over the United States of America. He already has eighty four judges that have been approved during his first two years. A lot more needs to be approved. If you had to have one chamber of the congress that you have control over it needs to be the Senate. He did that and the Republicans have actually increased their majority in the Senate that will be the most significant thing to ensure an effective presidency of the next two years. So Jordan Republicans beat Bill Nelson. Republicans beat Joe Donnelly, they beat Claire mccaskill they beat Heidi. Heitkamp might be Jon tester. That race is still ten percent out tester has a thousand volt leader. So I mean, so again, those four all voted against Brett caviar all four try to play to the middle and try to act like moderates. And they're the people there states have said, no, we don't buy that. And by the way, your votes show, it clever can even tried to say, I'm not one of those crazy Democrats Sopher. She votes always against always against everything that would be considered even moderately conservative. So I think again, it was a great night's statewide for governor a for a lot of governors races. Well, Democrats did well and some other governors racist. But I will say that there's still more Republican governors in the country twenty-seven, then there are democrat governors. So you have a state advantage there of who is leading or states. It is Republican governors. I think the house. Yes, it could it could have gone better for Republicans. I think the president's right? There are a lot of Republicans that are going home that never fully embraced President Trump. And the kind of cleared them out of the house, and these are all up for real unlike the Senate these are all up for reelection in twenty twenty when President Trump is back on the fan Bennett. So legislation. It was always going to be partisan like the tax cuts. It was important to get that done in the first two years. They did it. Now, they're going to have to shift on legislation to things that are more bipartisan. I think the president's well positioned to do that the two additional items think about how much easier it would be to fill a supreme court vacancy with fifty four or fifty five Senate seats than with fifty one in the final point. I would make the most important power for continuing your draw down the regulatory burden on US companies that exist

Missouri Senate race: Claire McCaskill, Josh Hawley race intensifies

"You know, this could go either direction, but like you mentioned, you know, Heller. Was considered the most vulnerable vulnerable vulnerable Republican in the Senate, and he still is by he's actually been able to get around some of the issues that were really big Thornton inside at the beginning of the campaign. One of the big issues that Jackie Rosen who is a political newcomer. She's a first term congresswoman she was recruited by Harry Reid to run for the house in two thousand sixteen. So she doesn't have a lot of experience, but she's been going after Heller really hard on healthcare. Heller was one of those senators who came out initially when Senate Republicans were debating repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act and said, you know, I have some concerns about this. But then he eventually voted for that motion to proceed voted for the skinny repeal of the Affordable Care Act to get rid of the individual mandate. So Jackie Rosenthal, going after Hans saying, you know, you flip flopped on the Affordable Care Act. She's been running these really memorable ads featuring this orange inflatable to man, the kind of thing you see outside the car repair shops as sort of I come here type deal all she's been running ads accusing him of being Senator spineless saying he'd been blowing with the wind. Of Washington, and that sort of been her biggest attack against him is that he's cave to Senate Republican leadership, and he came to President Donald Trump going against the best interests of Nevada. And what's interesting about that is Heller actually said that he was ninety nine percent opposed. Donald Trump is sixteen election. He's been slowly warming to the president over the last two years. It was really happy about tax reform campaigning on that issue. So Jackie Rosen's than sort of trying to keep her her head above water, and sort of just run a straightforward campaign and the biggest attack against hers. This fact that she's a political newcomer running ads against her saying she's accomplished zero in the house. She accomplished zero before she announced her bid for the Senate. So why do you want to elect her when you know, I've been around? He I I was in the house in two thousand six he's been around for twelve years. So they have that experience contrast as well. Interesting because Heller was was not pro Trump. In fact, looked like he was gonna face a a primary from a very very trope pro-trump candidate Danny hurricane. And apparently Donald Trump called often Danny Tarquini and told him to run for congress instead. And now Heller seems to be pretty Trumpian running running in this campaign. Exactly. Yeah. When when janey Tarquini and who's run several political offices in Nevada over the years has never won. But but frequently runs he got in that race, and he actually said that Heller sort of waffling on the Affordable Care Act to repeal and replace was one of his main reasons for getting in the race. He was he was unhappy that Heller wasn't out in front behind the president from the get-go. But then you had Heller changing as though ultimately being a little bit more supportive of the agenda and that president ended up getting behind Taylor. And actually recently called him one of his his his best friends in in congress rally out here in Las Vegas. Okay. I want to come back to this including the the importance of the of the Hispanic vote and. Role. It's gonna play in in Nevada. Nancy, let's come back to New Jersey.

Four U.S. cities sue over Trump 'sabotage' of Obamacare

"Other way to help you experts identify them, we'll talk to former Obama national security facial. Ben Rhodes says, this may end up being another Trump photo op morning. Joe is coming right back. Four cities are suing President Trump over his promise to let care implode using his words. After congressional Republicans failed to repeal the law last year, Heidi Priscilla. This is your exclusive reporting this morning. What more can you tell us? That's right. Mika lawsuit is being filed in Maryland federal court by the cities of Columbus, Cincinnati, Chicago, and Baltimore today, arguing that Trump's efforts to make good on his promise to quote, let ObamaCare implode violate the constitution Trump is waged a relentless effort to use executive action alone to undermine and ultimately eliminate the law. The complaint charges according to a draft obtained by NBC news, the suit alleges that Trump's directive ordering agencies to rollback is much of the Affordable Care Act as possible violates article two of the constitution requiring the president to quote, take care that the laws buffet finally executed. It also will rely. Why on a list of Trump's tweets indicating his intent to unravel the law according to a lawyer that I talked to involved in the case, and if successful, the suit would prevent Trump from undercutting insurance markets and issue an injunction that he implement the law faithfully. So this has been going on and building for the past year ever since congress tried numerous times in failed to repeal the law legislatively. Jonathan q lot of talk room for good reason because we're talking about a foreign power trying to destroy our democracy about the rush investigation about Putin about a lot of other issues. But I Don the campaign trail. Aren't Democrats hammering healthcare. Most of all. I know Claire mccaskill talking a lot about pre existing conditions and Donald Trump owning to take away that. That benefit from working class middle class Americans. Yeah. Democrats have an abundance of options in terms of how to run this campaign this fall. But I think that we're a lot of strategists are coming to the pinion and I'm sure Heidi pointed this as well is the idea that as much as yes, Russia would resonate in presents itself as a a real danger to this democracy, but it's things like health care that are the issues where that that's Democrats feel like they can make more inroads here that those those are things that are affecting people's everyday lives in their pockets..
