A Closer Look at the Black-Jewish Congressional Caucus

"January and February have been full of commemorative moments for both the black and Jewish Communities. The birthday of Martin Luther King Junior the death anniversary of Anne Frank International Holocaust remembrance and Black History Month we sat down individually with three founders of the Black Jewish congressional caucus democratic congresswoman Brenda Lawrence Democratic congresswoman. Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Republican Congressman Lee Zeldin to discuss why the caucus exists the issues. They think it will address and why it's important for black and Jewish leaders to work together. Not Apart I I asked about the original purpose of the Black Jewish congressional caucus how that purpose has evolved since its conception and what the main issues the caucus to address we. I posed the question to chief. Founder Representative Brenda Lawrence when I went to my colleagues. And ask them if they would be interested in forming a black Jewish Caucus. Civically this administration. I have seen an uptick in divisiveness and Rachel tension and also hate crimes been reported as validated being on Increasing and we have such a strong and long history of lack American and the Jewish community coming together in those times when our country lost its way the Jewish community came to the support of the black community during the civil rights movement. We have shared experience between the Holocaust. Slavery of being people oppressed by no other reason except for who we are and We know and we feel uniquely the stereotypes in the tension that are often placed on us as black and Jewish citizens of this country. And we are here in Congress to write laws and policies to ensure quality to make sure that we're forcing the civil rights of this country and we should be having a unique conversation around this and I can tell you I was so impressed with the support and willingness in a bipartisan way to form the caucus so what are the main issues that the caucus hopes to address. Well I want to know that as we look at hate crimes and discrimination as anti Semitic. It's racist xenophobic Often go back to Martin Luther King. Our unity is born of our common struggle for centuries not only to rid ourselves bandage but to make oppression of any people by others impossible so when we plan or what. Our jackets is our is that we will make sure that we are uniquely informed. We are aware of these incidents and policies and situations where we see Racism not being addressed properly or being able or being nurtured and that we can pass policies and enforce loss through our justice system to ensure we're holding true to one nation under God indivisible with liberty and justice for all next. We asked Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz during the civil rights movement jewish-americans lent critical support to the N. Double ACP and fought alongside. Dr Martin Luther King Junior to challenge racial segregation in public accommodations and black leaders have stood with the Jewish community following the tragic shootings. At synagogues in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania and POW California Joakim Prinz german-american Rabbi and refugee of Nazi. Germany represented the Jewish community as an organizer during the nineteen sixty three march on Washington. So that history is long and and significant and so the the The Black Jewish caucus is really important for us to be able to to retie those binds. And make sure that we can work on the modern day issues that are of mutual concern to both communities are purposes to assemble leaders to learn from one. Another advocate for joint concerns Regardless of party we believe And we exist because all partners are committed calling out hate and racism and discrimination anti-semitism and xenophobia whenever and wherever it rears its ugly head and you know our alliance in the Black Jewish caucus is really important so that we can work to honor and strengthen and safeguard the bond of our communities that have been developed in the struggle for equality in America. Then we asked representative Lee Zeldin. There is a need to better bridge the gap between the Jewish community and the black community and understanding a long rich history of the the black community fighting for on behalf of with the Jewish Committee and community and vice versa This isn't a new concept for us to be working closely and back in World War. Two was seven sixty first tank battalion. Bed Liberated gun skirt skin and God almost four hundred medals for their heroics their efforts and it was Jewish members who stood side by side with the black community during the civil rights push and some actually ended up giving up their lives in that fight for Justice and equality fast forward to two thousand and nineteen. This was announced in June But we were talking to each other about it for a few months leading up to that. Brenda Lawrence Really did a fantastic job taking a lead initiative. The American Jewish Committee was also influential and helpful with that. 'cause how has it evolved since then? I would say that more and more people have expressed interest in being part of it so it's become a bigger and it's allowed us to build a stronger network and we've seen a divide close But the challenges still exist and we just had a Hanukkah in two thousand nineteen that was marked by violent antisemitic attacks in and around the New York City area and some of the people who were paying attention to it saw that the individuals who are carrying out the attacks weren't neo Nazis. They weren't they weren't white supremacists. They weren't a radical Islamic extremists. And they they weren't Politically motivated it was a different dynamic than what you might have been talking about in June of two thousand nineteen You had some people who are talking about the the black Israel The Hebrew Israelite Movement But then others within that movement rejecting the acts carried out up in Munsey attacking the rabbi's home as well as attacking The the Jewish Kosher Supermarket in New Jersey. So in a way if you ask me how it evolved part of. It's been positive With all of the outreach in all of the new relationships and part of it has been an added challenge added friction as we witnessed what happened in the Hanukkah two thousand nineteen and struggling with figuring out how to as quickly as possible Deal with that next. We asked how the black community can support Jewish concerns and how the Jewish community can more forcefully advocate for African American issues. Here's what Linda Lawrence had to say. Yes the Jewish community has in the past as as you know during the civil rights movement Jewish communities one of our strongest legal and justice advocate on the judicial system but it is lifting the voice of Black America Black Lives Matter Institutional that is. Our biggest challenge institutional racism when it comes to the education when it comes to housing when it comes to the criminal justice lending voice to the black community and pointing out those things that are wrong and the black community. What we can do is make sure that we are calling out the stereotypes against the Jewish community. Then we heard from Debbie Wasserman Schultz. There is really some significant overlap that particularly with the violence and the Anti Semitism and bigotry. That is being hurled at our communities not just with these horrendous murders but with social media attacks and you know protest against our communities and discriminatory actions so we have a lot on our plate. Initially that I think are in my view important for our communities mutually and you know because the Caucasus really in its infancy as we mature and move down the road. Get to know one another issues that you know. We can be across the aisle and across our communities and the caucus focused on trying to prioritize the issues that the individual communities find important and lastly representative Lee Zeldin. Well we always spent a lot of times so far I talking about the way. The Jewish community has been targeted with not just Anti Semitic thoughts but antisemitic actions and violent and some cases of its cost people their lives. So you know the the ways for the the black community to identify what? The top issues are Right now for the Jewish community. We're seeing it. Play out really in the national news and the national debate for the Black Community The there still is racism in our country in many respects and I think that teaching tolerance and and understanding ensuring that policies aren't discriminatory that individuals have the ability to achieve the American dream and shouldn't be held back just because they might be someone of color or they might be practicing a different religion like Judaism. That discrimination racism still exists in our country. We saw it play out not too long ago on. Long Island where I'm from the first. Congressional district of New York is on the east end of Long Island There was a story that was in. Newsday was an investigative report of members of the real estate industry discriminating against people of color who were trying to find housing trying to Purchase a home to achieve the American dream. And unfortunately that's an exception and not the norm. It's rare But the response has been robust with investigations. That have been lost. launched as well as the real estate industry themselves Self policing Each Other To educate but educate each other and to push out of their industry people who are discriminating against Black individuals who are trying to own a home and then she the American dream so I would say as far as identifying some of the biggest needs right now of the black community. I would say that just like it was easy to identify anti-semitism as a top needed needs to get addressed for the Jewish community. I would say. Racism is something that's very prevalent and still needs to be addressed absolutely with regards to the black community next. We asked what issues of mutual concern? The caucus can address. Here's what Brenda Lawrence had to say. I think it's extremely important. That the black and Jewish community allow the history of oppression for either of our people to be forgotten. You know there's some people who like to say the Holocaust didn't happen. There are people who say You know black people so each other to slavery. So what's the big deal? We cannot allow the history that as horrific as it is to be forgotten. And that's something else that I think that we uniquely can do as citizens of this country and as survivor and Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Right now we have a really significant challenge around white supremacy and the rise of white supremacists in United States white supremacist increasingly targeted and killed large groups of people in recent years because of their race or religion in the United States in Twenty fifteen we had nine African Americans who were murdered murdered by a gunman whose name I won't mention at the Emmanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church Mother Emmanuel in Charleston South Carolina. Because and this is quoting the murderer. He knew that it would be a place to get a small amount of black people in one area. You had Robert Bowers. Last year yelled antisemitic. Slurs before he opened fire and killed eleven worshippers at the tree of life synagogue in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania and that was the deadliest attack on the Jewish community. American history you've had attacks on mosques where insecurity has had to be increased after fifty one people were massacred to mosques in New Zealand. So we have a very current urgent challenge with bigotry. Anti-semitism white supremacists who are engaging in in deadly violence and so that's at the security and houses of fighting. Anti Semitism and bigotry is Is really the top of our current list of issue the very tragic areas of mutual concern for for both communities and and I would also add Particularly because most of these crimes perpetrated with guns the Jewish community in the African American community have have really come together around making sure that we can close all the loopholes that allow people who shouldn't have a gun under federal law here in the US be able to get them Now that issue is unfortunately not bipartisan. I was just getting ready to say. That's gotta be bipartisan. doesn't mean that That the hawks On Black Jewish relations can't take it on

"Well we have one of our favorite congressman today congressman lease Ouden from the First district in Long Island to defend. Listen what happened happen in Congress in Washington this week Congressman Zeldin. How are you? I'm doing well. It's great to be with you this morning and there's certainly a lot lots for us to talk about so excited to be back on well all of a sudden It seems like Nancy Pelosi is working. Gop and you pass the Canadian Mexico. United States agreement. What happened everybody became saying for a couple of hours? This is something that should have gotten down at the beginning of the year. It's good that we're doing it now. It should have been done a long time ago but I think the issue here is that as she's moving forward with passing articles of impeachment. She has these thirty one house. Democrats and districts Donald Trump won and many of them are essentially being sacrificed. They're not going to get re-elected elected because their arms are going to have to get twisted into voting for impeachment in these districts voted for Donald Trump and when they they were getting elected by people who voted for Donald Trump at twenty sixteen they were sending these members to Washington to work with the president not against him. So you have this signature. This is a big win for the president but most importantly it's a big win for the American worker that you have this. US MCA deal. That's going to be passed. Ask this upcoming week. The the speaker announced this past week. And it's going to be a a deal that that's expected to add a lot of new the US jobs supposed to add us. Investments going to add United States. GDP this is good for the American economy. It's good for the American worker And I think that speaker realize that if she's going to be moving forward with these articles of impeachment That she's going to try to blunt that impact at least a little bit by doing something that really should be occupying a heck of a lot more of her bed with and that's working with Republicans to try to move our our country forward but I gotTa tell you aside from this announcement to let. US FCA pass We're seeing so much oxygen in Washington get totally totally sucked up by this desire to try to overthrow the president. So it's it's frustrating. I and I I give the speaker more credit than other people do as as far as her being a little more politically savvy i. I don't think that she brought forth this impeachment because she woke up one day and decided sided. That impeachment was the right thing to do. I think that she got roles by the far left her conference and four. They forced her to take on this impeachment. And I I don't think she wanted to be in this place now politically if you're going to move forward with this ridiculous impeachment. That's that's why they're trying to get. US MCA over the finish line. And that's why they don't want a government shutdown because they will be blamed for it If if they don't cut a deal deal they needed to get the NBA pass to fund our troops to make sure they had they quake part of these negotiations. Part of this compromise was another big victory for the president. He designed he wanted to have this new space force. And now it's going to be funded and created and hopefully it'll be the exceptionally implemented to add another dimension to US capabilities and our ability to to be ahead of the curve leading the way across the entire world so Th there are wins here for the president that the speaker conceded did on because she knows just how incredibly stupid this impeachment pushes. I believe that One of the things are happening. Are there any other surprises coming out of Congress that you know mutually agree a- so we passed the NBA this past week. We are going to pass the USMC next week. There's going to be a funding bill. That's going to get past next week and as we go forward lowered through twenty twenty. Unfortunately I don't predict that The the speaker is going to be looking for for all sorts of different ways to work with the President and Republicans to get victories across the finish line especially as congressional Democratic primaries heat up up and in November twenty elections get closer however I do believe over the court and while we can't predict exactly what's going to be allowed through the cracks by her twenty twenty. I think that we'll see some victories gets through. There's certainly a lot to do to move our country forward Lord and I wish I could tell you exactly what it is that she's going to allow through And then there's another part of this once you get past the November twenty twenty elections. You didn't get into what's known as the Lame Duck Session November December twenty twenty where I bet you that we'll see a lot of good things get done in a short amount of time. Hopefully if we there's no there are no bad things that get done. I always get a little nervous when you're talking about funding the government when you're getting close the holidays and members of Congress want to runaway To to be home with their families as opposed to being the smartest possible stewards of of US tax dollars. So there's some things that are getting through now they'll be some they'll we'll get through in twenty twenty and then again after the elections Unfortunately the climate right now is toxic and this whole effort to impeach Is just sucking up way too much bandwidth And this is not. I believe strongly not where most of my constituents WANNA see House. Democrats focused on I. I don't think it's where most Americans want aso think that it's counterproductive to the political aspirations of Democrats next year's election approaches now the next week is the full vote for the impeachment. Do you think they'll be. Some Democrats have breakout. I'm sure that there will be Democrats will oppose this There are Democrats who will have to vote. Yes in order to give the speaker of the votes to pass the articles of impeachment And a bunch of those members are being sacrificed their being thrown Over the cliff or thrown in front of the bus the how you're looking at it You have members who are the districts that voted strongly for the President Twenty sixteen that will vote strongly for the present they get in twenty twenty. This is not what they sent those house. Democrats to Washington to do vote. Yes they'll vote yes anyway. And then they're going to end up losing their seats in many respects if not entirely because of this because of of an angered pro-trump base back in their districts serious That that people who told them that they'd be going to Washington to fight for other. The priority is not this instead. Sold them out Broke their promise. and really put their own party over country he played along with is impeachment. Fairy tale of Adam Schiff of relying on presumptions live here say three percent of the story not seeing in the forest through the trees and not viewing the hundred percent of the facts. I think there's going to be outrage in many of these districts where they vote yes Sunday morning anything else you WanNa tell you early. The American public. We're going to get through this. I'm not sure how. And when we get through this moment in time where we're seeing this toxic environment in in Washington Where we have so much bandwidth Being eaten up by impeachment or countries get through it will be stronger for it We we just have to keep fighting not take anything for granted not be complacent and make sure that next November that everything you care about everything you're passionate for your fighting thing for because you can't wake up the day after and election complaining about what happened during the election if you don't participate if you don't vote So this is a moment in time for us. AH TO DOUBLE DOWN and not get tired. Because there's a lot for us to fight for and I do believe that we're gonNA come out of this even stronger than we were before. Well thank you. Congressman Lee Zeldin Dowden. Thank you for coming on this Sunday morning. And thank you for informing all New York is an all Americans and what's going on and catch up with you again real soon. Look for to take care thank you. This is the cats roundtable. We'll be right back..

"Good Morning America. This is the cats roundtable truncates petits. Here's Sunday Mooney. What the heck is going on in Washington? Well a good authority and we have a good friend congressman lease Zeldin congresswomen southern. How are you this morning doing well? It's always good to be with you now. You're in the center of all these things. And you've been an advocate and a spokesman about what's going on behind closed doors give the American people on update. What walk the heck is going on? Is a possibility that the house impeachment can really formerly known as the House. Intelligence Committee may be done with their public and private interviews This past week we had a week filled of Public Open in hearings Last weekend we had to closed-door depositions of one of those transcripts still hasn't been released Mark Sandy who who works at the Office of Management and Budget who came in to answer the question as to why there was a hold on to Ukraine so then we went through the entire week of people people coming in to testify and giving their own theories as to why there was a hold on Ukraine. But we weren't able to talk about the answer that we got directly from the Office of Management and budget a lot of the answers given over the course of the open hearings. We really learn anything new. A lot of the information not only came out during the closed-door depositions but were leaked in a way during the closed-door deposition spun where it set higher expectations for these open opening impeachment hearings I have found through all the closed-door depositions and all of these open hearings that there is nothing to impeach the president of the United States aids for doing absolutely nothing and I think that it's really important for Congress to get back to representing our constituents working together to pass. US MCA to own the cost of prescription drugs And to do other important things that move our country forward forward but unfortunately What we're seeing right now with With this impeachment charade is total gridlock and our country being torn born in half with what is an effort to appease a radical base that put The House Democrats in charge after the twenty eighteen election. So I believe that at this point this should end but what I'm hearing is that now the House Judiciary Committee The first week or two who of December as maybe marking up articles of impeachment against the president to bring to the House floor for a vote. I don't know how how many more Democrats would be willing to do the right thing and vote against impeachment based off of the reality of what is actually in front of us and then even if they do pass it this is dead on arrival in the Senate and the trial that will be held in in the Senate is one that is going to fit the democratic narrative. Well it's not going to serve out of shift well So this is going to get worse. Not Better for the Democrats if they continue this This path I'll congressman. I've said that publicly publicly the fact that the president of the United States makes a phone call and wants to make sure that we're turning over four hundred million dollars that everything is non corruption in Ukraine. There's nothing wrong with it. If I was as president I would do the same thing. I mean the fact that he's asking that is there anything wrong with with Vice President Biden. Whatever he did just because he's vice? President doesn't give him immunity if there was something wrong that part. I don't the American people I really understand that. And the the the first point to what you just said which is so important to understand is that it is. US law US policy. I see that we cannot be providing. US Tax dollars to create unless they're making progress fighting corruption. Now there are two issues here at play way that have many aspects of actual corruption the muzzle cheifs key issue where they hired Hunter Biden. There was an not only was there. An actual corruption case against burris Menzel Chessy. There's a history of corruption cases against against these people. This is a corrupt Ukrainian gas company or by corrupt Ukrainian oligarch hiring the vice president's son solely based on name only you with no energy experience no Ukraine experience paying a ton of money monthly Despite the lack of qualification in the vice president happens to be running turning point for the Obama Administration. And there's a loss of one billion dollars if you create as a fire the prosecutor who by the way had an open investigation to Baristas all chess. Ski That issue to want to look further into and the president saying that our countries should work together on and that that that Ukraine should work with the attorney general that that's a legitimate corruption issue it is undisputed that Barista ski are corrupt. As a corrupt energy company run by a corrupt oligarch. The other issue Ukrainians did interfere. Fear in the two thousand sixteen election even Even some of the people who will say that Ukraine didn't interfere in the twenty sixteen election many of them. are willing to concede there were Ukrainians who interfere with its way sixteen ship. So we'll see we'll let let's not. Let's not confuse and can fleets Let's talk about what actually happened. There's a when Rudy Giuliani was hired as the presence personal attorney and he was going to Ukraine and and he was concerned about these different aspects of these. Different allegations were trainings. Were Faring Twenty. Sixteen election the Robert Mueller investigation was going on and whether it's The black ledger that brought down Someone in the middle of the trump campaign from the trump campaign Whether it's the origins of the steele dossier it's the op-ed that was written by embassador. Chali that list goes ought of different Ukrainians interfering twenty sixteen election. No one's saying that Russia didn't meddle that Russia dividend in fear That is the consensus of our intelligence community. There's bipartisan consensus on the hill. But but some are saying that because Russia interfered twenty sixteen election does that means that no Ukrainians interfere to twenty sixteen election then that that's let's a bizarre approach to this argument to try to help take down sitting president. These are two specific cases of actual corruption and with regards to you Hunter Biden's role that whole setup. If that's not a legal it should be and we should then pass a law to to prevent that from ever happening again but I believe it was improper what had happened. Well there's twenty people running for for for president on the democratic side doesn't mean a twenty people should be immune if they did something raw re small Joe Biden. Zule chess ski. The Hunter Biden all those people and entities they. They shouldn't be a muted from scrutiny. Just because Joe Biden is running for president was an actual coup corruption issue at the heart of this that we should look into and we shouldn't stop to it and turn a blind eye to it just because job is running for president. I understand that on Friday the polls flipped and was forty six percent against impeachment forty three percent sent for Impeachment de American people finally realize of the nonsense. That's going on. I believe that most gives are increasingly aware of the fact of what is motivating house Democrats. Let's bring this action. The the heavy reliance on second third fourth and no hand information by Democrats is out out of control they many are pointing to a one statement. That ambassador son with made during his open hearing as if that was the bombshell statement case closed and that we need to move forward and a pizza and when lassiter someone made the claim that US H.. Ukraine was linked to an investigation. He used words like presume and guess. He was guessing guessing that there was a link and then when he was answering further questions he admits that not no not the president. United States Rudy Giuliani. No one on this entire entire planet has said anything to him about there being linkage so for your store witness And witnesses is to come forward either relying on some third or fourth hand hearsay in some cases or relying on. I guess in another case. This is absurd surge trying to take down a sitting president. I think most Americans would rather see Congress focused on the cost of prescription drugs passing. US MCI than they would prefer to see discontinued reliance on an effort on trying trying to obsess over a teaching resisting obstructing. The opposing everything. They won't progress run country and they don't see impeachment charade as progress now last last question. I've taken Pelosi under task. I said if you're going to spend the whole day on on impeachment. Why did did you spend half a day and appeasement and the other half passing the the Mexico Canada Trade Agreement? At least we make some progress for country that means tens of thousands of jobs for the United States of America. Why can't you is anybody else taking you to task on that one hundred percent there there are a lot of people who Who believe that? We should be focused instead on passing different bills and agreements that will move our country forward and the US MCA would result in as you point out more jobs in the US or vestment in the US US increase GDP. We have a stronger economy at Nancy. Pelosi should be giving American workers the wet give America the win at test associate. Agreed if you're going to waste your time away waste a half a day. Don't waste the whole day. Let's have progress for the United States remark and more jobs congressman Lee Zeldin. Thank you so much for coming on Sunday morning and telling the American people the Truth and you know you're revette you were you worry and care about the United States of America and I commend. You thank you John. It's great to Florida next time. Thank you this is the catch roundtable. We'll be right back..

"The morning, New York. This is the cats roundtable, John Katzman TD's here. It's Sunday morning. What's going on in Long Island? You know, every weekend, I'm out in Long Island and was mourning is congressman Zeldin. Good morning, congressman. How are you? Doing fantastic. It's always good to be with you. Well, always to hear your voice and tell us all the things that you did this week. I understand you worked very hard for New Yorkers that were hurt and nine eleven. Tell us about it. This is a joint effort. Republicans Democrats than York delegation coming together strong. But also many members of congress from all across America on nine eleven as Jon Stewart pointed out front of the house, share a committee, that was not a product of terrorists saying death to try back, a it was the targeting of America, targeting of the United States, where we all no matter what state, you're from whatever corner of this great country. You reside in, we were all attacked that day as Americans and the nine eleven victims, some were first responders of many others. Were targeted that they lost their life, many families displays their loved one in an instant was lost and fast forward to twenty nineteen. We have reached the point where more non eleven first responders have passed away due to nine eleven related illnesses since nine eleven. Then the amount of people we lost on that day. The nine eleven victim compensation fund is running out of money, the special master earlier this year, announced that said that congress needs to immediately act benefits were going to have to get cut at least fifty to seventy percents. So this legislation to reauthorize the nine eleven victim compensation funds to fund, the VC f this legislation came before the subcommittee of the House Judiciary committee, this week the legislation then the following day. Then tasked the house physician committee unanimously now goes to the floor where this Bill that has over three hundred co-sponsors is going to pass with strong bipartisan support where you need the Senate to immediately pass it. We're gonna need the president to sign it and to ensure that all these nine eleven victims and their families are receiving what they have been expecting for for so long and don't have to continue to beg for support seeing these first responders come to Washington DC week after week, many of them, sick, begging for support the frustration is real, it's legitimate, and congress certainly needs to act fast. Well, it certainly is real, and, and her those people went through losing their friends, and then having different sicknesses from that. Nine eleven. That's very, very sad. Let me ask a silly question. You know, government, you know, our tax. We should pay for it. There's no argument from anybody about that. Like you said, no argument from Republicans, no argument from Democrats. But let me give you hypothetical case why shouldn't the Saudis, pay for it? I mean, we had how many are knows to attack airplanes. Hit the World Trade Center, how many of them were Saudis. Ninety percent. Yeah. So I, I mean I wholeheartedly completely agree that these families deserve their day in court. Actually get much more back than you're the nine eleven victim compensation fund, but you can't put a price on losing your loved one as a result of this terrorist attack. And many of these individuals came from Saudi some from Saudi Arabia from the, the Middle East, and the, the price that was paid the ultimate price that was paid by these innocent Americans as a result of terrorist activity. I believe families should have a day in court where they're getting substantially more money. Nine eleven victim compensation fund is something that is. Meant to help these families cope with that loss of a loved one. And the, you know, the financial toll that, that can take, especially if that loved one, you lost was someone who's keeping the entire family together with their salary which then all of a sudden disappears, but it is certainly not an amount of money that can ever attempt to be a cost on the life. That's not the purpose of the VCX, and I, I, I agree with you that, you know, that people deserve a lot more compensation for that. I would just say, as far as the federal government goes and why I believe, especially in this case, and this isn't a tornado, it's not a hurricane. This was a terrorist attack on the United States. But what we can't forget, is that right after the nine eleven terrorist attacks the federal government, the EPA put out a an announcement, telling New York. Workers, that the environment was the air was safe to breathe in, and the first responders who were working on the pile were working with, with a federal with the federal government and experts, having told them that the air was safe to breathe. So there's also a liability component there, which also justifies the, the United States government in congress passing this reauthorization. You know, I it's something to think about, and I think the congress should think about it, and about reimbursing American taxpayers. I mean, the Saudis the possibility of the Saudis funded some of them there has to be a possibility. Yeah. No. Absolutely. And if there is any, any individual or foreign government that wants to dispute any Intel reports that went out there or any claims that any individuals wanna make all the nine eleven families wanna make that many in the media, make then have them do that in court. And, and then the United States tax payers, and US tax dollars would would not be spent the the way that we receive at US tax payers would be reimbursed for the amount of money that were debating right now in, in fully funding. The nine eleven VCX to come so. Let's have that the court two sides can make their, their best argument and that could be healthy on many fronts, with this entire process, not only to secure compensation, but also to, you know, allow individuals on, on both sides to put out at digital facts that maybe someone many in the public haven't even seen or heard before re do you expect any opposition, all in congress? I sure hope not there. I don't know of any public announced opposition to the Bill. I do know that in in through the years in the past when is a job act was first being debated when there's a drug act in twenty fifteen was being reauthorized and now in some of the conversations when advocates sit down to, to meet with members of congress. There are questions that get asked their concerns. That get relief and you have to work through as it as it applies to many important pieces of, of legislation. But no one as far as I know, has said that they are going to vote no to the Bill. And when it came up for vote at the House Judiciary committee passed unanimously. And, and there are many conservatives on the house this year each committee, and that was something in, in the past where you're publicly some who were member. More conservative members of, of congress asked questions about costs and the administration of the program and ensuring that it was as a fishing as possible, and, you know, some rain have raised questions about, you know, the, the national debt or other first responders who have been impacted in other parts of the country earlier, I reference tornadoes, or or hurricanes for. Leads this, obviously is different for many respects a terrorist attack, plus the federal government liability by saying that the air that the air was clear. So while I've heard some questions, get asked, and, you know, some concerns, get related over the course of the last few months, and, and even years, no one's publicly announced the opposition as far as I know we have a minute to anything else. You talk about with all visit you represent guess far as long islanders go. It's, it's that season a big happy fathers day to, to you, and all this other dad's a Long Island. This is that time of year where I would say, the first congressional district of New York makes that a strong case of being the greatest congressional district in America for, for anyone out there, trying to figure out something to do with whether it's the rest of their weekend or for the rest. Of this summer. That's coming up. I, I would encourage all to, to come take advantage of this great island that I call home that many of us love, I call it home on weekends through. So I'm out there with you. And the sun is shining. And we hope to the sunshines every weekend so far, so good. It's been amazing Memorial Day weekend was fantastic. And by the way last last weekend, I was over enormity for the seventy fifth anniversary of d day it was amazing to history. At if you go back to the one hundred anniversary you're not gonna have that backdrop of, of World War Two vets. So it's a reminder to cherish any opportunity, you get with the World War, Two veteran. Let them know how much we will them for the ultimate triumph of good over evil the Greek sacrifice that took place on those beaches of Normandy. It was an honor to be there. And we in Suffolk County, a Long, Island absolutely love. Our veterans not just the highest vets population of any county in the state Suffolk County. The county were where I'm from has the, the second highest veterans population of any county in our country. So, you know, with great reflection, whether it's Memorial Day of the same fifth anniversary of d day, you know, while we're enjoying this great island that we will have that we call home. It's a reminder to thank those who sacrifice so much to, to make it possible. Give us these freedoms and liberties that we cherish, I thank you for what you do for the United States now. And thank you for your service, and your forces and God bless you and bless your family, and happy, Father's Day. And let's catch up again. Real soon. Sounds great happy. Father's day.

"Than congressman Lee Zeldin from the first congressional district of New York, a military intelligence. Professional a veteran and a great supporter of the president. Welcome congressman Zeldin. Oh, it's great to be only. Congratulations on the new show. Thank you. Thank you kindly. You have been a champion for making America. Great again. A true patriot fighting in the trenches of the swamp are you pleased with the news today of the three week respite. Or are you worried as many many maga- supporters? Why I don't know if I'd say I'm pleased overall, I I will say that as far as that a federal employee who's been working hard coastguards span who is living paycheck to paycheck. This is great news for them. However, we still have an important priority. That must get addressed to secure our borders to to strengthen our border to build a wall. And we have three weeks to get it done. There's gonna they're gonna know what conference house and Senate Republicans Democrats, the president should needs a seat at the table. And I would tell the speaker of the radical last Nancy Pelosi that she shouldn't be doing it for President Trump. She shouldn't be doing this for public in. But she needs to allow the will of the American people could be at that table where we're not just increasing border security by throwing a few more dollars at it. We're actually approaching this to address human trash. Drug trafficking, sex trafficking, keeping getting rid of transnational gangs, keeping illegal immigrants out of our country. So that's the most frustrating part of all of this is that we have a long way to go as far as border, though, a little bird whispered to me last night, the best way to get these kinds of things done is just to keep congress in session for more than six weeks because people get frustrated and they want to go home. Is it really that easy? Can you just get over the political posturing by just tiring down the other side? I think that when you start this shutdown is the first moment that happens. I of members of congress should not get paid the first thing. I did I sent a letter to the house saying don't pay me as long as it's shutdown going on. It's crazy member of congress would get paid while that coast guardsmen, doesn't Secondly is don't leave DC. You should have is there should be a requirement that we are all staying in DC together until it gets resolved. So remember it's just before Christmas. If they said, you can't leave here until the deal is done. It would have been done by Christmas Eve because everybody would have wanted to to get home. And then so since now Nancy close you become speaker of the house and every weekend, we're going away either. Recess from Washington. Nice think that while we're talking about the individuals who get caught in the crosshairs that federal worker who's working hard and not getting paid. Really? It's it's about those members of congress who feel way too, comfortable extending the shutdown as far as it was. I think by you know, as far as tactic goes. I really do believe lock everybody in the room. You cannot bring your phone into the room that might even worse than for some of them patriots. Yes. You can't leave here until you have a deal. Jane an hour, two hours three hours. It's done. Well, we shall see. We have twenty one days we shall see congressmens out. And I wanna talk about a very important Bill that you and another Jewish. Republican congressmen have raised in Capitol Hill about the scourge of antisemitism. What is the fate of this Bill, and how of the Democrats responded to your proposal radio? Silence. That's the type of response so far. What what what is the goal of your Bill, and then tell us what what what the response has been. So last week the house of representatives passed a resolution condemning white supremacy was nearly unanimous always in now, why is it that when I been introduced a resolution to condemn anti-semitic hatred that there's not just anti Israel hatred, but it's anti semitic hatred targeting Jewish people that all of a sudden that that gets attacked as you know, it's not bipartisan enough. There was no there were no Republican sponsors on the resolution that passed last week we came up for a vote and passed almost unanimously this week we have a new resolution that I filed our congressman Ted barges and several other colleagues as well. Joined in as original co sponsors of the Bill comes from Stefanik, congressman, Jordan, congressman hice a lot. Of a lot of great diversity knows who had signed onto the Bill to send a strong message that, but it was Democrats who are bracing Louis barricaded associated hugging him for to meet a Mallory, and we're just sort of the organizers of the EC winners March and older antisemitic feature that fills their hearts and for the new members of congress, the freshman members who who are coming in with their horrible statements and rhetoric that is allowing these these worst forms of evil, not only to treat American politics. But now to infiltrate the halls of congress, I say, we condemn it. Nancy Pelosi says, well, let's give her spot on the house barn affairs committee with a clearance embracing it with a clearance and the capacity to access all kinds of sensitive information. This is very disturbing because antisemitism has has been with us. But now to see it institutionalized. When when is the democrat party going to reject this? Well, what can we do together to make sure that it isn't given a home that anti semitism isn't given a home on Capitol Hill. It's going to require congressional Democrats to roll their leadership because we're Nancy Pelosi will elevate it will empower it up your Maxine Waters, just became shared House Financial Services twenty. Meanwhile, we watch videos of and see pictures of her hugging, Louis Farrakhan. Like, they're best buddies. So you have no rank and file congressional Democrats. Why talk to who see it just like I see it and they're raged by it. And now they have to make the tougher challenge. They need to meet the tougher challenges speaking out against it and rolling leadership. And and one of the best ways to do that is to take this resolution that I just introduced to sign onto it. Let's make it a bipartisan resolution, let's have a vote. And let's condense that's you can't just give a place a home with the Democratic Party and expect it to just plain out what's happening over the course of several years is that there are more and more people who are getting active in the Democratic Party. And you're seeing a lot of it in the far left. Progressive activists base where they support like the Bs movement a skin Israel. But then it leads to college students being directly targeted by semitism in the name of being anti Israel. So no, you can't you can't just hope wish that it's going to go away. You're gonna have to confront it and crush it. Well, we support you in everything you do. And if we can help you in any way, this has become a theme already in just a few weeks. We've been on a is documenting the rise of antisemitism in an institutional fashion the left in the last few seconds. We have left. Representatives Zeldin, please follow him up rep Lee Zeldin Z E L D. I N. What do you think of the the footage of the the stone arrests this morning in the last thirty seconds? We have. I thought it was it was crazy. Like, why not just contact Roger stone and after the turned himself, and he would do it in a heartbeat. The man is a senior citizen who has no record of violent. There's not a single signs threat indicator that I am aware of that would back up what they did to just clearly try to embarrass him to try to make it more of a story for the national news anti hype themselves up, and I think by the way that the FBI agents on the ground. I mean, they're just doing their job. This is coming from a higher level. Maybe it's coming directly. Probably from Eric special counsel's office, saying go all out, he'll grab all the equipment to gear the firearms. You have and go in there guns blazing. I just ridiculous considering the circumstances. Thank you, congressman Zeldin,.

"Continues on this thirtieth day of November. Thirty four minutes past the hour. The top democrat on the Senate intelligence committee says there's a trend among close allies of President Trump not telling the truth Senator Mark Warner's comments came after Trump's former attorney Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to making false statements to Warner's committee. But Republican congressman Lee Zeldin says he thinks the special counsels team is grasping for straws for one the president who has personal knowledge that he didn't do anything wrong. He continues to cooperate. He he's answering questions. A lot of documents have been provided. This investigation appears to be going well beyond with this ever expanding scope that is a lot further than the purpose for creating appointing a special counsel in the first place. The president is rapists investigation to end, but what's more important than that is our country is ready for it to end. So the the Muller investigation, hopefully is one that will be wanting down soon because it really is improper for there to be an investigation like this throughout the entire time. That President Trump is in office is a member of congress. I'm serving at the this is the end of my fourth year. Now, I don't I'm not aware of any evidence whatsoever that the president had colluded with the Russians so until come in contact with any information whatsoever. The justification for not only continuing this investigation. But also expanding the probe like what we're seeing. Well, beyond of why it was created in the first place. We have a lot of members of congress have a problem with that too. All right. Michael Cohen were you surprised at all about the the entry of a guilty plea? If you will. That he put in this morning lying to congress. Well, what strikes me about it is that Muller star witness has now admitted to being a liar, criminally, and I'm a former prosecutor, and you're looking for facts and elements of a crime, I see so much of that is missing about what gets alleged maybe in the news or those who want to take on the president who are desperate who are praying to take down the president has.

"They're not actually progressives conservatives who made this pack, but under this progressive name, they've been sending out mailers to democratic voters in key districts all over Washington state, telling those democratic voters that their local democratic candidate. Isn't really progressive enough isn't really liberal enough. And so real Democrats shouldn't vote for that democratic candidate. Real Democrats, real progressive should instead write in another name. And each district's Mailer has picked another fairly well known local democrat who's run for some other office recently in the past few years as the supposed write in candidate that real progressives should pick instead of voting for the actual democrat, who's on the ballot. So it's clever, right? This is apparently a fairly expensive campaign. These are professional looking fliers and ads there. The product of actual local research where they had to pick seemingly plausible alternative candidates to try to undermine the democrat, who's actually on the ballot. Seattle time stuff has started to pick apart the scheme and they're now seemingly finding evidence of it all over the state. This Republican dirty tricks campaign all over Washington state to try to split the democratic vote and depressed the democratic vote. Apparently, this one is an effort to try to flip the state legislature in Washington, or at least stop Democrats from taking more Republican seats in that legislature. I mean, hard-fought elections, close elections, theoretically should bring out the best at everybody, right. In terms of campaigns, ability just hustle and be officiant and make the most of their resources. The competition for undecided voters the race to knock on every door. The recent get people to the polls, the effort to win the argument based on the issues. Right. And I'm sure there are close races around the country this year where that is in fact what is happening in democracies working the way it ought to. But what we are also seeing in these close hard-fought elections is that they're bringing out the worst in terms of trickery and disinformation and voter suppression efforts, and people like congressman Lee Zeldin trying to con their own constituents out of either voting or at least of having their vote counted. The remedy to that. Of course, always the same thing. You know, your rights vote, don't let anybody stop you from voting help other people in your community to know their rights and to help them vote to. That's always been the remedy for this sort of thing. That's what you do in the face of trickery. When somebody's trying to con- you out of your vote. It's the same thing you do in the face of thuggery as well. That tries to intimidate you or threaten you from turning out at all in the twenty twelve election presidential year..

"You and i have covered politics a long time and it will be interesting to see the two of them in the same room live here on seventy seven wabc with me and on our curtis and cosby show well you know read i what i'm what i'm reminded of listen to you play those various clips of them is that it's very hard i think to understand what is the substantive difference and when there isn't a great substantive difference between candidates you know often becomes very personal interesting point because it has gotten and it's interesting because you know when president trump tweeted out that he was supporting dan donovan he talked about tax policies and how we support of tax the tax policies dan donovan voted against the proposal by you know by president trump and it'll be interesting to talk with michael grimm about that and they both are kind of hailing the we support donald trump mantra which of course donald trump did very well in staten island right and i think donovan like a number of republican representatives around the country voted against the tax plan because of the limitation on state and local taxes that you could deduct from your federal taxes and i think in hindsight that was one of the deficiencies of the bill that i think had we can see it now so voting against the president's tax plan even as he says he supports the president and the president supports him and that but that opens it for grim to say well you can you say you support him but you voted against the most important billy had so i think it is one of the flaws of the legislation now i think had the had the salt or the state and local tax deductions been somewhat higher i think you would have attracted more republicans and then protected them against this kind of attack you bring up an excellent point and also of course congressman lee zeldin also a number of others were very upset.
