David McCormick: 3 Biggest Issues to Address in Pennsylvania

"What are the big issues you're hearing about and why are you the best suited to address them You know Mark I hear the same three issues over and over again I've had enough focus groups here to know that I'm on the right track And they are first and foremost inflation Inflation is a huge drag on all of this We're at a 40 year high in an inflation But it really hurts working families It hurts elders on the fixed income And it hurts small businesses I was in a tool and die shop yesterday and owner told me it's killing him because all his inputs the materials he's buying are going up in price and of course he's not able to get the price and things he sells And it's doing great damage So that's the first one And it's a direct result of the socialist policies of Joe Biden make no mistake about it He's trying to blame it on other things It's bad policy Bad policy by the Federal Reserve and bad policy by our president The second is energy Energy comes up over and over again because as you know as a pennsylvanian Pennsylvania is blessed with incredible energy reserves we'd be about the fourth largest country in the world for natural gas if Pennsylvania or a country And it's unbelievably clean gas that we're able to share with the world And the Biden administration's war on energy has created huge uncertainties So nobody's drilling And it's hurt our energy workers and it's driven up the price of gas So when I started this Grady journey it cost me about 90 bucks to fill up my pickup It's about a 125 now It's because of bad policy And that of course has contributed to Ukraine which we can talk about as well And then the third issue is border Border border border it comes up over and over again It's because of the crisis and fentanyl in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania which is the worst country in which state in the country per CAPiTA for fentanyl

Jennifer Horn Explains California's Scary New Abortion Bill

"We thought it was bad enough in the Commonwealth with the butcher of Richmond with the former governor Ralph northam with his. Pediatrician saying a woman can decide after the birth. If they keep the child or kill it, talk to us about this unbelievable story coming out of the assemblies, judiciary committee. Yeah, so there is a bill in California that was put together by an assemblywoman out of Oakland. It has the full support of our attorney general in the state, rob Banda, who was handpicked by Gavin Newsom. And really, they started this bill because there was a woman who was addicted to meth during her pregnancy. She had a stillbirth, and she was charged with murder of her child. Now, we could debate all day long whether or not that was appropriate, but that was the catalyst for this bill that was put together. And you couple that with Gavin Newsom saying that California is essentially a sanctuary state for people wanting an abortion after Texas passed their life protecting laws in Texas, California has responded by saying, come on in, will not only give you an abortion, but we'll pay for it for you. Now this new assembly Bill says that a woman and her doctor or accomplice and this is spelled out in assembly Bill 22 23. Will not be held responsible under the law for anything that may go wrong during her pregnancy or in the perinatal period. Now, here's where the problem you're talking about just blanket immunity. Blanket immunity. And perinatal, if you look up the definition, can be anywhere from 22 weeks into gestation till about typically people say about 7 days after birth, which would then say that 8 is conceivable under this law without definition of perinatal that woman could have a baby, take it home, have buyers remorse something happens to that child God forbid, I don't even want to say it. And they would not be able to prosecute that woman or charge that woman with

"commonwealth" Discussed on Rear Vision

"This is an ABC podcast and we just interrupted national transport to Adelaide where south Australian premier Steven Marshall was speaking. Those nations which kept their students at school did better than those that didn't. Josh, we are going to have to leave you there. We're about to hear from the New South Wales premier Gladys Virginia. Contributed people acquired the disease of those who have overseas travel to those who had direct contact with them. And if we wanted to stop the spread of the disease, we need to better monitor everybody who comes from other things. Whatever the term, the key, I am is very simple. Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic state and territory leaders have emerged as key players in dealing with a crisis. They have led the way on public health policies. Border closures, quarantine, lockdowns, mask wearing, and test and trace. The daily premier's conferences became mandatory viewing as case numbers climbed. And it's clear most Australians supported the health measures and the leaders that impose them. Hello, I'm annabelle quince and this is revision. But it hasn't just been the pandemic, state and territory governments have increasingly taken the lead on issues like climate change, dying with dignity, and even treating negotiations with Indigenous Australians. Today we're aware of the power and influence of the state and territory leaders. So what better time to look at how and why the Australian federation was created and the historical relationship both political and financial between the federal or Commonwealth government and the governments of the states and territories. Good morning, everyone. On the 31st of December in the year 1900, majesty, Queen Victoria, numbered among her positions overseas, the colonies of New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia, Tasmania, Queensland, and Western Australia. On the 1st of January 1901, majesty was graciously pleased to proclaim the colonies constituted the federal Commonwealth of Australia. The Australian federation came into existence in 1901, and right from the beginning there were tensions. The colonies, some of whom had been self governing for decades, agreed to join the federation, but were reluctant to give too much power to the new Commonwealth. This reluctance was reflected in the Australian constitution. The framers of the constitution envisaged and intended a federation that was quite non centralized or decentralized. And I'm a professor Kutner university. And to do that, they decided to assign a specific and limited and limiting list of powers to the Commonwealth government. So the same, these are the things you may do and nothing else. And they deliberately decided not to list any state powers because they thought these were essentially infinite and open ended. And any attempt to enumerate them would be an exercise potentially in limiting them. They saw themselves as creating a constitution where the Commonwealth had some very specific assigned powers, and that was it. And that those powers concerned chiefly two things. One was essentially the Commonwealth was replacing the British Empire in relations to the external world. So that was the most important task assigned to the newcomer government. But also because federation was about overcoming barriers between the states. There was also the common assigned various responsibilities to do with ensuring that there was a common market in a single country and so on. But other than that, everything else was left to the states. So the list of Commonwealth powers did not include things like education, healthcare, social policy, land use management, the environment, criminal similar law, the indigenous people, police, prisons, infrastructure, including transport energy, et cetera. So virtually everything that governments do was left exclusively to the states. And am I right in thinking? And we'll come to this more broadly. But in a sense, the whole history of the relationship has been about the Commonwealth then extending or moving its control into a lot of those areas that basically under the constitution it originally didn't have. Yes, and largely that's occurred de facto those in a few cases it's occurred a year I through amendment of the constitution, but very few cases. The big areas that went to the Commonwealth were things like defense and immigration. And very importantly, customs. Frank bonjourno, Professor of history at the Australian national university. The big debate in 19th century Australia and the colonies was free trade versus protection. In other words, whether goods should circulate freely or whether they should be duties imposed on them and that included within Australia itself, goods passing between different colonies, but also goods coming from outside. And by the time you get to the late 19th century, political parties were actually organized around free trade and protection, at least until the Labor Party emerged. And so that was a major barrier to the joining together of the colonies in a federation. And it remains really the most contentious issue of the early Commonwealth because the power to levy customs duties went to the Commonwealth. It had exclusive right to do that with one exception. Western Australia was given 5 years grace. It was allowed to continue to levy duties against the other colonies for 5 years as a transitional measure. But generally what you had was free trade between the colonies, goods were able to pass freely across boundaries within Australia and between Tasmania and the mainland. But you had the power of the federal government to live your customs duty against the rest of the world. And that was the primary revenue. That was the main form of revenue things like income tax. They existed, but were appealing proportion of government revenues. Most government revenues came from customs duty from putting levies on goods. And that made the issue really important. That gave an enormous clout to the Commonwealth, because it basically means that it got the revenue. For the first ten years, it had to give three quarters of it back to the states, but then really all bits were off after those first ten years. And so if we want to understand why the federal government becomes so powerful, the power of the purse as it's often called is critically important, it's central to the rise of Commonwealth power. Customs and exercises and unusual Commonwealth power because it's an exclusive power. The states can not make.

Eric Adams Demotes Brother From Deputy NYPD Commissioner to Deputy Director of Mayoral Security

"And Eric Adams, he's right along. He goes right along with it all. He hasn't taken on a challenge this whack job prosecutor or district attorney. They've got in New York now. But he did back pedal on a bizarre promotion he gave his brother. He had given his brother who was, I think the assistant director of parking at Virginia Commonwealth university, nothing that is anything wrong with being the assistant director of parking, but I'm not sure you should become a deputy NYPD commissioner. Well, it turns out mer Adams has now already demoted his brother after the pushback, city officials confirmed moments ago that mayor Adams little brother is now going to be the executive director of mayoral security. That's a number of notches lower in rank from his previously. Designated title. He's still going to do pretty well. He's going to get a salary of $210,000 a year. The retired NYPD sergeant, but that's 30,000 less from what he would be getting his deputy police commissioner. So I guess even Eric Adams saw the handwriting on the wall

They were turning on and off their cars, sleeping an ambulance on gurneys. That'll be a memorable experience. How you can not get organized.

The funniest thing about Twitter were that the morons on Twitter were blaming governor elect Glen young for the Virginia Department of Transportation and aptitude in failing to plan and execute any kind of a close the highway keep people off of it order, which is what they should have done. Just close the eye, keep people off of it until it's plowed. Ohio turned pipes been doing that for years. So Glenn young can just can't get there soon enough. And the national reviews Dominic Pinot wrote a story late last night why I 95 in Virginia is jammed. And it comes down to the Virginia Department of Transportation, lack of preparation, inability to execute and general ineptitude. And this has been 8 years of democratic management. So what did you expect? The Commonwealth used to work when governor George Allen was there. And now governor Glenn young is going to have to bring in an entire new group of managers infused some private sector know how and knowledge.

Pennsylvania Court Allows Inspection of Dominion Voting Machines in One County

"This is from world net daily, there's something called the amistad project. And they've been focused on focused on election integrity. Before the 2020 ballots were counted, and they just announced that the Commonwealth court of Pennsylvania is allowing project almost our project and Fulton county descend, the county's dominion voting machines to the state Senate for inspection. The director of the amistad project is named Phil Klein, he said and I'm quoting him. The court recognized that it was improper to demand that the county which owns a machines, and is responsibility of running the election, along with the legislature can't determine whether the machines work properly. As a judge noted, there's no justification for preventing the county from looking at their own machines. And inspection had been scheduled for earlier this month, but the state AG and the Secretary of State sued to prevent any more to prevent such move to affirm the accuracy of the 2020 election results. Now it's set for January 10. And that will be after a judge determines that the review must be allowed to proceed. With a short delay to allow experts on both sides to come up with a formal protocol for the inspection. The am a star project attorney said this executive branch officials were trying to stop the inspection altogether, but the judge did not grant their emergency motion to stop the inspection. They did not go to court seeking a delay. They sought to stop it and they lost.

Speaker Newt Gingrich Pinpoints the Watershed Moment in Glenn Youngkin's Campaign

"Speaking English as a resident of Virginia, I am, of course, buoyed. I am very excited by the recent victory of Glenn young of his lieutenant governor of his attorney general. What is, can we read a broader significance into this for next year and for 2024 or is it rather sui generous as a resident of the Commonwealth, I look at what happened here. And I see a businessman not unlike president Trump with no political background. He brought a business like attitude to the campaign, talked about getting Virginia back to work. But in the last few weeks, because of those mothers you mentioned at the school boards, he very adroitly pivoted to this culture war issue of fighting critical race theory and vowed to ban it on his first day in office. Is that a model or should Virginia be dealt with this as something unique? No, I think I watched lens campaign closely and talked frequently with his campaign manager. And I believe that the turning point of the campaign actually was when he went to a loudon county rally of a thousand people who were upset about the schools, and then in the debate when former governor Terry mcauliffe said that there was no place for parents in schools, and that was electrifying and as you pointed out Glen is a businessman and built a good campaign team and they actually had something up on the air. By the next morning. And just throw home for everybody in Virginia, the term of thought that there was no place for parents and schools. And that, I think became the signal moment that began to change everything. No, young can also did a very adroit job of having Trump's help in rural and southern Virginia where he's extraordinarily popular without having Trump campaign in Arlington and fairfax county where he's unpopular. And so junkin was able to pick up all the support in the suburban counties from people who were upset about the schools while picking up all the support in rural and small town Virginia from everybody who was pro

But then you hear speeches like that and you are reinvigorated and you realize there are some good men and women left in the swamp who are fighting and fighting to save our republic. That, of course, was congressman Jim Jordan, the ranking member of the judiciary committee representing the beautiful fourth district of Ohio and we are deeply honored to have him with us for one of our one on one discussions here on America first. Congressman Jordan welcome. Good to be with you, Sebastian, and thank you for having me, and thank you more importantly for all you do to protect freedom in our constitutional system and this great country. So it's good to be with you. Well, thank you for those kind words. We have so much discuss. You've got a new book coming out next week. We'll talk about that as well. But I'm going to do things a little bit differently on this one on one. I usually wait until deeper into the conversation to ask this question. But because of your role as an inspiration to those who, you know, fighting at school board levels of fighting across the country. Let me ask you this question right now. Are we finally beginning to win are the results in the Commonwealth of Virginia, maybe a taste of what is to come congressman? I think you're exactly right. I think it's going to build. I said this when Merrick Garland, Merrick Garland came in front of the judiciary committee a few weeks ago, I said, what you did when you guys spied on parents set up this snitch line on parents. I think that's the catalyst for a great reawakening for freedom in this country for the judeo Christian ethics and values and principles in this country that make us the greatest, the greatest nation ever. So I do feel confident and then we saw those results in Virginia sparked by moms and dads, having the courage. And one thing we all know courage is contagious. One mom stands up and defends her son or daughter and says, I don't want this racist hate America curriculum taught to my kids. One mom does it, then it's two moms and it's dads and it's and pretty soon you have a Republican governor in Virginia. And that is going to spread across this country. So yeah, we're Americans.

And he did that a few times and then my father came in 1963 from Jamaica after, you know, he could prove who background check who he is, who he said he was, and everything else that he had to do and then he was allowed into the country. That was August 11th of 1963, just 17 days before Martin Luther King Jr. gave his I have a dream speech. And so I asked my father, why would you come then? You know, it was a bad time for us and because this is where the jobs were. And I said, yeah, but you came at the height of the civil rights movement. He said, this is where opportunities were.

Yeah, that's right. He's going to have a committee meeting. No. No. Batting CRT tax cuts put advanced courses back in. Right. I mean, there's a whole long list. Huge things that as a former CEO of Carlisle group, you know, he should be able to actually implement in a business like fashion. So let's pull back from the Commonwealth. Right. Let's look at what this means nationally. Let's look at what it means for next year and 2024. Let's break down first the Trump effect. I think my old boss, I might be biased. Played this really delicately and well. He did. Because he did that phone rally, but nothing else. He did a soft endorsement, but didn't come out banging the drum on Fox every single day for Glen. Glenn came out of the closet came in on my show after mucking around my producer for a few weeks. Quitting himself, well, and then once he came on maestra, he was you opened, you know, the force that he came out of breitbart he came out of Fox Glenn was everywhere suddenly, very interesting, which means he's not fully distancing himself. He walked a very fine line. Extrapolate this for next year in 24 Ned. Well, that was the smart part about what young Ken did and I think he literally has laid out a playbook for Republicans in 2022 if they're smart, which is a massive question. Let's be honest. We're talking about that master question next. Right. Drive the playbook. The playbook is he saw he took the side of the parents. It's common sense approach in which the parents should have an advocate in which we fund public schools, we should not be abused by them. We should not have our children indoctrinated and then our kids. And it's our money. The funds everything. And Republicans need to embrace this and go, yeah, we're siding with parents. I mean, this is so common sense. I still have been around politics so long. I'm sure there's going to be Republicans will find a way to mock this up in 2022. But if they fall the Glen young can playbook and embrace it and say I'm gonna be an advocate for parents, parents have every right to be involved in their children's education. They should have every right to be involved in how their taxpayer dollars are

Virginia's Suzanne Youngkin Is Glenn's Secret Weapon

"Virginia is not going the way of California. It did not fall off the blue cliff. Last night is turnout surged across the Commonwealth. I was texting with friends in my old state of California saying please, please please don't become California. And in fact, Lennon, embraced a new model. Be competent, be courageous. Big candid with voters. Be calm. Most of all, be a constitutional conservative. Glenn junkin was and he won. Suzanne junkin is his little known but very effective weapon. I met susanne at my early voting polling place when I went weeks before the election to vote and she was out there working the polls. Here she is last night Suzanne young and the new First Lady elect of Virginia. I love you, like, look at all these women. You all were amazing. Incredible. Incredible. It has been the highest honor to spend these last months, traveling around this Commonwealth. And meeting virginians. You welcomed me in your homes, you welcomed me in your parks, you welcomed me in your houses of worship, you were the most kind hospitable industrious, dedicated, wise, thinking, caring and beautiful people to me and I am forever grateful. I do want to give a shout out to the more than 27 thousand women. That were part of women for Glenn. Incredible. Incredible. You inspired me and sustained me and you girls rock.

Of course, first African American, lieutenant governor of the history of the Commonwealth, a product of a Salvation army homeless shelter went on to serve her country in the marines and gave a speech last night that not one single MSNBC or CNN viewer saw. Let that sink in about how vile they are. Because her story is such an American story. And that's what the left never understands about us. They treat us like dirt. And they literally ignored winsome Sears. While they were flailing about and sick to their stomachs with their constipated look on their faces, I had so much fun watching MSNBC. I watch them about once a year. And last night was a great night to watch MSNBC. To watch that shrieking woman Nicole Wallace, oh my gosh.

"In Europe. Yeah, absolutely. Okay, so there's a lot of things you mentioned there. What do you think will be the most important impact that the Commonwealth Games will have a Birmingham? Do you think it will be that it's set in the city as a place for sport or athletics like you just said or do you think it might be something different or can you not name just one do you think it will be a succession? I guess I have to. I have to hope for what we're setting out in our legacy work. And I just hope it connects the communities of Birmingham better together. You know, if I challenge in times, haven't we around the whole sort of inclusion accessibility agenda tolerance and community integration and that cohesion. I think with the efforts we're making in the communities that don't feel connected to the center. I think we owe it to those communities to focus all our efforts there. If we can bring about better integration, you know, and make the most of those headlines about Birmingham is such a multicultural place full of diversity. But if that diversity is separate and in little pockets around the city and not connected together, then really it will stay siloed like that. And I think the integration and the cohesion of gender is the biggest one. I think the games because of the whole put in the history of the Commonwealth aside, what we have in Birmingham is that representation of the Commonwealth in so many so many ways. And I know there's a focus from partners to say, let's make sure we celebrate that. Let's not let down our communities that represent the wider Commonwealth. So for me, I know it's not a business answer. It's going to be a significantly increased tourism. But I think if we can bring Birmingham together through the event and maintain and sustain some of that afterwards, that's the most important thing..

"So some of those communities that are perhaps more disadvantaged and disaffected. And that's where most of our work will concentrate on. That's it. It's that super important, isn't it? Again, it comes back to uplifting communities. And as you say, it's against for everyone, not just a few who can afford it or so absolutely. That's fantastic. Okay, so let's jump into some questions then. So obviously, we're all really excited about the Commonwealth Games and everyone wants to get involved. And the opportunities to get involved are, well, they're in full swing at the moment, aren't they? But what we'd really like to discuss in specifically in the next few minutes is about the legacy, like you've been talking. So what's going to happen after the Commonwealth Games as kind of as a result of it? So how important first of all is the Commonwealth Games for putting a city like Birmingham on the global stage? Do you think I think it's something I think sport whatever people think, it's like the Olympics is that we think back to 2012. It was a little bit of a level of cynicism and the excitement when it was almost upon London and the country then. Changed people's attitudes and I know there are mixed feelings about some of the things that have resulted after London. But it's so I mean, burbing as the second city as struggles sometimes because it hasn't quite had the infrastructure development and the attention on it from a global audience that the likes of Manchester and Glasgow have been more recently. So I think it proves that sport does bring that attention onto the city, probably more than lots of other things. And because it's over a longer period than any one off competition or one off music event or one off wider cultural experience. I think it will be, I think it will be huge for the city..

God it get in and get those files blow the safe and getting that break in never actually was carried out. And i think it's actually the only time nixon actually ordered a break in but of course that's the back story to the idea of the break in in september of nineteen seventy one of the people who became known as the plumbers. Who's who were called the plumbers. Because they were supposed to stop leaks The seriously that's no. I know that's true but how you just have to chuckle at the sadness of that.

There's leagues a but they break into a psychiatrist's office. The office of fred fielding. Who was the psychiatrist. Daniel ellsberg and daniel ellsberg was the man who had leaked the pentagon papers to the new york times and the pentagon papers were a series of investigations of the president's before nixon. They didn't go up to nixon and how they basically establish that those presidents had misled. I lied to the american people about what was actually happening in vietnam. So they burglarize. The office of fred fielding. Who was daniel ellsberg psychiatrist in. Nineteen seventy one. And then of course on june seventeenth nineteen seventy-two those same plumbers break into the democratic national committee headquarters at the watergate office building. And that's of course how. The watergate scandal begins. But the idea here was that it was okay for the nixon administration to use the powers of the intelligence community to spy on people who stood against the nixon administration. After nixon resigned houston appeared before the senate church committee which was investigating intelligence abuses in the wake of watergate and he explained his initial belief that his plan was necessary and his eventual recognition that the types of intelligence liberties that he helped create invariably lead to too much corruption to really be feasible. And therefore i've come to conclusion that whereas.

"Who is who is on the table here and that that raises an important point in the same way that corruption can be a fuzzy term. Dissenter is another term. That can have a lot of definitions and one of them can be people who don't support me yes and also to break into again a specified establishments which we're gonna hit a get in a second and this is one of my favorites intensify the surveillance of american college students in her study so i glance at florida and shall remain silent. I'm not sure we shall remain all vats silent okay again. The the argument here was that you couldn't stop the real fear in america in the in one thousand nine hundred seventy without having better intelligence. So how are you going to get better intelligence. You're going to have to you know. Break a few eggs to make a good omelette. So they're gonna go after using the powers of the federal government to investigate american citizens to see if they're up to no good but that no good of course is defined as are they going to be operating against the nixon administration. And there's a really interesting argument. That really comes up. During the nixon administration of why americans should not be able to dissent against the president and the argument for that is that because the united states president has his finger on the nuclear button. If you will that to operate against the president means that you are essentially undermining the person who has the ability to destroy the world at hand and this is makes the president in nixon's case. Kind go far afield and believe that he really does represent the country and in this case humanity. So there's this idea that anybody who criticizes the president is an enemy of the people right an enemy to the country an existential threat to humanity. Right not just to nixon's re election in nineteen seventy two so in houston has to go ahead and explain why this is going to be okay. He comes up with a series of of ideas. And the i do bullet points in why he thinks it's okay for the government to do. This really jumped out at me. He said the. Us government has an overriding obligation to use every available. Scientific means to detect and neutralize forces that pose a direct threat to the nation.

This person also says that this is a system hamilton system of executive influence with him at the top. Now the interesting thing about hamilton is if you had asked him if corruption is important in government he would say yes and handily. He did at a dinner party. Which thomas jefferson. Like to describe very often for that precise fact and as as jefferson tells that story there was a meeting with john adams and thomas jefferson and hamilton and they were discussing business of one kind or another and after the business was over and as jefferson puts it. He cloth was removed from the table and they were just sort of sitting around and talking adams said something along the lines of remove the corruption from the british government and it would be the finest government on the face of the earth whenever jefferson write something down that hamilton is saying that he thinks is particularly bad. He always has hamilton pause before he says it so in his notes he's like hamilton paused and then said and what hamilton said was no no with the corruption. It's the best government on the face of the earth now. What he meant was the sort of behind the scenes wheeling and dealing and all of the things that in one way or another would entice people into engaging with the government into complying with the government in his mind. The stuff of real life politics so yes. He did think that a certain level of corruption was necessary when he thought about the government as a as a founder capital f. He assumed that you know particularly discusses this. In the federalist essays humankind are not virtuous angels. They are all going to do things for themselves in one way or another and the purpose of government is to channel their selfish passions into a public-minded direction so he's operating from a starting place of corruption that it's good and that if the government is strong enough it can channel it so you actually used a really interesting phrase there you said it's an executive system as opposed to as i say just a suitcase full of cash and that's a really important distinction because when even when i hear you talk about hamilton and corruption. I hear suitcases full of cash. But in fact he is not putting you know benjamin's although i guess benjamin senate in his pocket he senior such a weird in franklin had a big ego so he does such a weird thought like he's running around when i'm talking about this but.

House of Representatives, the Honorable Nancy Pelosi. As the U. S grapples with covert and an economy in crisis and with President Biden and Vice President Harris about to take office. We're pleased to talk with Speaker Pelosi about the direction of the country plans for the new Congress and the possibilities for breaking gridlock in Washington and the country in general. Speaker. Pelosi is, of course in her third term as the 57, speaker of the House and is the first woman to serve in this role. She's represented San Francisco in Congress for 33 years, and I'm proud to have called Speaker Pelosi, my friend for the past 35 years. Thank you so much for being with us, especially given all that is going on there in Washington. And all that's on your plate and welcome back to the Commonwealth Club. Madam Speaker. Thank you very much. Madam President Gloria Duffy. I'm honored to be at the Common Law Club, and it's perfect time in light of everything that is going on. But I also want Congratulate them for having you as president. You mentioned that we've been friends for over 35 years. I want everyone to know that we became friends on the trip to Central America That was Spotted by the Columbia Foundation. Madeline has Russell some of you may have known her sponsored account for a trip to Central America joined this Central American wars, which I completely opposed. But Gloria being the academics that she is, she went there and we watched her. All of her as she viewed things scientifically academically. For example, if we visited an airfield, she would she would be writing down. How many Russian of vehicles where there are Russian parts or this or that she was making. Not that what we were doing, taking an impression having impression, but she was collecting Data that would be very helpful and how it would go forward. So I've been in all of her for decades, and I'm so proud that she's at the Commonwealth Club and speaking of going back years Today, as many of you know. When we're filming this, not maybe when you're saying it is Theseventies ninth anniversary. Of Pearl Harbor 79 adversity of Pearl Harbor Day that would live in infamy is President Roosevelt said. Following that, my it's a important to mention now is a country came together and united to fight our foe and to win and doing so we lost about 291. That's the number of record Americans in World War 2 291 right now, well over 280 people who have died, other calling a virus million's infected but over 280 Well on our way to surpass the number of Americans who died in World War two. It is absolutely essential that we come together and united way. To fight this virus, which has such in. This made such an assault on the lives and the lively of the American people, and we must do it in the most science based way. Science based not despite Ng. It is a hoax or delayed two mile distortion or anything but based on science. So right now in Congress were working on legislation to take us And into the next administration, which will be soon and the whole dynamic of our debate has changed because we have a new president who was interested in science, just scientific decisions and recommendations of where your mask socially distancing was Testing, tracing treatment and the rest that have been ignored, and also we have a vaccine. It's pretty exciting. In a few days, the committee will approve or question whatever but move forward. The vaccine defies the vaccine. Another week, the Madonna vaccine And before you know it, the governor has a plan on how we would receive what comes to California. But the vaccine is not natural for everyone right now. We have to take science. His view on how we go forward. I'm so excited about the fact that Whatever the party of a person it's about science. It's about the future. Thank you, Madam Speaker and thank you for your kind words. I knew on that trip to Central America that you were headed for great things. And I could see the dedication, the grit the intensity that you have brought to your job. So thank you for your service. So what do you think about American leadership? We're a bit beaten down at the moment by this virus and our political troubles and so on. What do you envision for American leadership, especially on the global scene? Well, American leadership is absolutely essential in the world because of who we are this great country and economic giant of security leader and the democracy, which is the strength of our country that freedom of expression of ideas, and George Schultz would even say that in countries where you could have freedom of expression You have a better product than where it is that suppressed multilateralism has been central to our leadership in the world. Respect for NATO respect for all the institutions that came forth at the end of World War two but needing to be refreshed and reviewed to see how they meet the needs. The issue of climate change is an issue that affects everything. It's about our national security are our national security experts Tell us must address this issue if you're going to be safe. It. Security wise health people You're going You must dress is is you're gonna be safe. Clean air, clean water protecting the planet. Physically, you must be if it's bad jobs. It's about green new technology. We must be preeminent in the world. So it's clear and that issue where America has been so much in the lead and protecting the environment and now protecting the planet, But it's goes beyond that as well and to national security. On the multilateralism being very important that economically a national security, So when we as Congress, people visit a country we have a purpose or purposes about our national security. It's a better economic security, and it's about governance. It's about being a good example to the world of governance and in corruption, honoring a democracy in the voice of all people. So the values that we have in that respect are not bite, dictating others how we think they should, but by the power of our example So the country we told we've been told over and over again On the last year I've been to Normandy for the anniversary and 75 years I've been to the battle the ball 75 years been toe Auschwitz 75 years of the freeing of our schwitz. Israel to celebrate that to Munich for the Munich security conference. In all those places America say, the cut those countries they're saying America is essential to global security to global of peace in the world. It's nice to have positive thoughts like that. As we come out of this pandemic in this crisis, I wanted to ask you were in an interim period right now between you know, with the election of President Biden and Vice President Harris. But with President Trump still in office, How do you feel about the state of the country? Right now? In this interregnum that were in Well, I'm counting the days until we have a new president. Disappointed that they're my colleagues in Congress have not had the patriotism to say the election is over. I think 27 of a couple 100 members have said the election is over. But anyway, putting that aside, one of things we're trying to do now is to to end Keep government open when in negotiation, wanna build an omnibus bill to do just that, as well as a covert package to it? Food in that to take us into the future. This covert packages again different as I mentioned earlier because we have a new president who does care about science, and we have a vaccine, which is it gives us hope. But in the meantime, we still have to take Precautions and again part of what we want to do that is different from that was to return to a place better healthcare, lowering the cost of health care by We're in the cost of prescription drugs of honoring pre existing condition benefit, etcetera. Bigger paychecks by building infrastructure of American Greenway take us into the future and cleaner government. You have the public have confidence that their voices is important is anyone else's by reducing the money? The role of big dark money in politics, So that's The path that we're on going into the next election. I really rather not spend too much time on the current soon to be ex president of the United States. Upward in one word. Let's go into the future. But right now, one of the fights that we have it is relevant. Very important and relevant to this discussion is in our probation bill. We're trying to stop the president for ending the civil service and firing. The people who are not political appointee is just people who are at these agencies that he just doesn't want to have their Replace them said that binds of.

"Program of the Commonwealth Club of California. I'm Gloria Duffy, president and CEO of the Club, a nonpartisan, nonprofit public forum dedicated to caring, diverse views on important issues facing our world. A feminist approach to the climate conversation begins more than 150 years ago. That's when a scientist named Eunice Newton Foot published a paper warning of the heating effect of CEO to on the connection between carbon dioxide and planetary warming. Since then, foot's predictions about climate change have become all too real. But as we've tried to engineer our way to a solution, critics have said the systemic underpinnings of the problem, including racism, capitalism and patriarchy have been harder to address. Women leaders and the climate movement are out to change all that. A new book. All we can save Truth, Courage and Solutions for the climate crisis brings together the voices of female artists, writers and change makers who are at the forefront of climate action. Later in the program we'll hear from some of the writers featured in the book, but first a conversation with Katharine Wilkinson, vice president of Project Drawdown, and marine biologist Aiyana Elizabeth Johnson, the co editors of all We can save Great Dalton, host of the club's climate one project. Begin by asking Dr Johnson to tell the story of Eunice Newton Foot. I feel like I'm on a first name basis with Eunice, even though she died well before I was born,.

I'm coming to you from my home in Palo Alto, California and this event is also being sponsored by common Sense Media of San Francisco. I will disclose that I am on their board, but you should not hold that against them. Today. We will hear from Dr Abram Ex candy. Historian professor at American University, where he founded the anti racist Research and Policy Center whom, as we speak, is becoming a faculty member at Boston University, where he will lead the view Center for anti racist research. He is The New York Times best selling author of the books stamped from the beginning. The definitive History of racist Ideas in America, which won the National Book Award for nonfiction in 2016. The bestselling and so popular, It's unavailable. How to Be An anti racist. The young adult book stamped racism, anti racism and you and his fresh off the presses Ford Book for infants and toddlers, anti racist baby. A Children's book that teachers, parents and Children howto uproot racism in society and in our own lives. He is one of the leading voices, if not the leading voice of our time on race, racism and his term anti racism. And we're so fortunate that of all the calls being made to him in these terrible times, he said yes to the Commonwealth Club and common sense Media and the community of listeners They are known for drawing in. Welcome, Dr Candy. We're also here with the Bay Area's own doctor. Allison Briscoe Smith, Child psychologist, director of diversity, Equity and inclusion at the Right Institute, The Graduate School of Psychology at UC Berkeley. She is a fellow of the Greater Good science Center at Berkeley, where she's one of the hosts of the popular podcast. The science of Happiness, and her work focuses on trauma, post traumatic stress disorder and how Children understand race. I'm here because I've written a memoir, a personal account of what it's been like to be black and by racial in white spaces in America. To learn to loathe myself before I learned I was worthy of love, And that book is called Real American, as in a NY, Real American and homage to Sojourner truth, So let us get to some truth. We are here virtually thanks to a global pandemic called Covert 19. But we're here to discuss a different Lobel pandemic. Systemic racism, racist power. Weaponised white nationalism and its ability to inflict horrific harm. And how, in that context to be an anti racist and to raise anti racist Children, viewers and listeners. Time is going to fly. You will hunger for more feelings will come up in you and I encourage you to notice them pay attention to what they are. And at the end, I'm going to suggest what you might do with what you've notice and learned from this conversation today. Alison and Abram, I want to begin by honoring you as black people. Professors, parents, thinkers, writers humans, I want to begin by acknowledging that this has been an acutely traumatic few weeks set within the chronic pandemic of racism. We have had some moments of hope regarding human rights lately, such as the Supreme Court decision that gender fluid and trans people cannot be discriminated against in the workplace. And today's Supreme Court decision that dreamers can continue to be protected by DACA. But we have seen yet again. An unarmed black person murdered by police captured on video. We have seen a white woman tell a black man who was simply asking her to curb her dog in a bird watching area that quote an African American man is threatening my life. Captured on video. And these are simply the latest examples of the time but no longer the latest examples now that their three weeks behind us of racism wielded as weapon in America, these examples evoke the murder of Emmett Till they evoke the fictional to kill a Mockingbird. I want to honor with you that this has likely been a hard three weeks set within the context of lives. That have, perhaps at times been quite hard. And now here we are asking you to do more work to enlighten audiences. And I want to pause and say it's a lot even as we don't want to worry about our bodies. The three of us when actual black bodies are being butchered by police, as Abram writes about so beautifully and how to be anti racist. Nevertheless, your black bodies, minds, hearts and souls are being asked to carry and hold a lot. So let me begin by offering gratitude to you for being here and then let me Offer the most sincere of enquiries by asking both of you. How are you doing in these times I saw appreciate the opening and the framing and in terms of how I doing, I'll just say I am well because I am sustained by community and I am well because I am called to serve and I am well because folks of open doors be able to speak and that well, this is also about being exhausted and on fire and seeing this is an opportunity to effect change. So I'm really happy to be What you all do nothing for me. I think the last two weeks I did not feel and know is constantly Trying to think sort of past this, but I didn't feel as if I could really think about myself and what I was feeling and and what was happening to my body? Because I just knew so many people were mourning their lost loved ones, so many people or traumatized I was, of course, feeling traumatized through their trauma. But I was just I was just trying to remain focused on trying to sort of clarifying explain that that very trauma and really the violence of anti black racism I sail about to say that I also know That you know, I needed to think about my own feelings and even my own wellness and stole. I think maybe I was able to do that through writing or maybe not, But it's never go. Never ending. So struggle for me like I almost feel ashamed if I'm thinking about my own pain, what I know so many people are in pain, but But as you stated, if we don't think about own pain as we think about other people's pain, and then we're going to end up hurt. Thank you for that. Both of you. I know we have many listeners who themselves have been deeply pained by what has been happening in our country lately, and I want and hope that you will feel seen and heard as we discuss these things today. So Abram Allison. I'd like personally and I like our audience to get to know each of you a bit better..
