"The inside fights as they are happening because so often the reason we lose them is because folks realize that votes happen after they happen whereas corporate elements of the party are very well attuned tune to what the business on the floor and really got forty eight hours before a vote is the most important forty eight hours in determining outcome. They've got the resources to do a little more Advanced planning as it were. That's right congresswoman. Thank you so much for coming on. Good luck on. Tuesday really appreciated We're big fans here. My daughter is a huge fan. And i have now become much cooler in her eyes. I will all right. Thank you so much really appreciate by and so there. It is I interview with. Afc and i was really interested to see how frank she was about Elements of the heroes act particularly Cobra subsidies because that is just inexplicable It's an inexplicable from both policy and practical standpoint. Why you would support that are right. We gotta take a When we come back we're going to be talking to professor gerald horne of the university of houston on the hidden history of juneteenth the phone. It is a pleasure to welcome back to the program. Professor gerald is the professor of history and african american studies at a university houston and the author. His latest is coming out in july. The donning of the apocalypse the roots of slavery white supremacy settler colonialism and capitalism in the long sixteenth century professor. Welcome back to the program. Thank you for inviting me i. I'm looking forward to your new book. I remember when you were on last time. And like i say. I can't remember if it was in twenty nineteen or twenty eighteen but you had Had said that you were. You basically had covered. I in some ways. That book is the prequel To your the last book that we that we had you on for which was if i'm not mistaken Gosh i lost it but it was like the The apocalypse You were full in the apocalypse the roots of slavery white supremacy and that was in the seventeenth century Thank you for joining us. Let's let's talk about juneteenth I think people know maybe a little bit of of of of what juneteenth is about that. It was that it marks The day june nineteenth in eighteen sixty five when Essentially the emancipation proclamation was read in. I think it was galveston texas. Tell us more about just the the the basic facts of this of this holiday yes and first of all the sixteenth century book is now out so you give me your address. I'll send you a copy. But in any case with regard to june teams June nineteenth eighteen. Sixty five major general gordon. Granger of the union army shows up in galveston texas off the coast of south east texas not for distant from houston texas from where i am now speaking. And according to the traditional story till's me in a way that they're free recalled. The civil war had ended in april eighteen. Sixty five a couple of months earlier but even though i support the move and of course. There's just been a bill introduced in congress to make juneteenth a federal holiday and corporations like twitter of stolen march one congress by granting their employees june team has a day off and i support that wholeheartedly but the story is actually a bit more complicated than the traditional narrative. First of all the emancipation proclamation. Coming into effect in january eighteen sixty three does not necessarily apply to areas where the united states did not exercise effective father and that's certainly included texas a bulwark of the so-called confederate states of america. That's the from the united states and they think sixty one. In order to perpetuate slavery forever more and then secondly there was this lingering feeling among slaveholders in texas that if the confederacy collapsed texas which after all had been an independent country between eighteen thirty six and eighteen forty five and only joined the union in eighteen forty five because it was up so under so much pressure from british abolitionist and other global abolitionist forces. And so if the confederacy collapsed texas at this idea that it would rejoin mexico from which has the ceded in eighteen thirty six because mexico and moved to abolish slavery and eighteen twenty under president of african indigenous origin. Speaking of synthetic. That'll you may celebrate cinco de mayo here. In the united states which is a major holiday for people of mexican origin which marks a clash between mexican forces and the french puppet forces under maximilian. Maximum million of course had given a warm embrace to the confederate states and so the idea was texas the rejoin mexico under mecca. Megan but fortunately what happened. Is that the mexican people and we with black soldiers. I should add including george washington williams. Who was an early black historian collaborate to squash maximum leading to execution of putting paid to this diabolical idea of extending the lease on life of slavery that he's texas labor held dear however i should say that unpaid labor for africans not necessarily in magically right in june eighteen sixty five. It continued for some time. How long is unclear. And certainly kinda of slavery arises the ticket speaking of the convict wreath system whereby black men in particular were arrested on the pretext and then least in mass to the same plantation owners who supposedly have freed them on june nineteenth eighteen sixty five. So if i hear you your your i guess. Ambivalence is a function of People misunderstanding exactly. What happened at that moment and that Texas was really This isn't about this isn't about texas pride and it really is in in many respects about a A status change of sorts of for For black and african slaves at that time well not. I'm doubling at all not about seventeen. The i salute those were pushing that as a national holiday particularly salute west coast longshore. Which as we speak or sitting down pork from seattle to san diego in solidarity with juneteenth and solidarity with the idea. This should be a national holiday and it's with black lives matter. I'm only assuming the traditional interpretation which i think makes brother simple and moved over a very complex and complicated history and in some ways. Let's the slavers off the hook because independent texas was a major slave trading force galveston was a major slave trading port. Right that is to say that the lone star flack it'd be found off the coast of africa with the kidnapped then brought to galveston. Oftentimes transshipped cuba. One of the reasons you have so many black people in cuba is because of the manic energy of these texas slave trader they would also slip africans to brazil and it's saving slave vessels with straight from texas from galveston to sing and gola load up the ship with kidnap maverick and take them across the south atlantic through brazil. And so a lot of history gets a smooth over when you just talk about. Oh you know. In general grainger shows up until the negroes. they're free and then they begin to celebrate right. Well so let me ask you this. In terms of the development of the marking of of june teams as opposed to the. Let's say i don't know The day that the emancipation proclamation is signed. Like i mean how Y in. And i and i hear you that you know the the end of the process as it were and i know that we are. You know really fully completed this process but the end of the process at least in the context of the official emancipation proclamation. Regardless of what the the what's happening on the ground per se We would have been in eighteen. Sixty five as opposed eighteen. Sixty three but What what what does it mean to celebrate that day as opposed to the day of the signing of the emancipation proclamation. Well first of all the train has left the station with regard to juneteenth. I think it's too late to claw back the particular date. Particular instance congress's moving forward black organizations wholeheartedly. Endorse juneteenth is mark. Believe in forty seven different states and the district of columbia. We expect hawaii to join the forty seven sooner rather than later and so. I think that the importance is having a day on which there is a solemn remembrance of the horrific nature of slavery and then using that process to connect the horrors of the past with the carnage of the president recently seen on the streets of minneapolis. The streets of atlanta staten island and many other bloody sites or too numerous to mention that's important with regard to the mantelpiece in proclamation. You may know that. Many historians particularly black historians have been revising their opinion. Shall we say of emancipation proclamation. This idea that it did not apply to areas over which the lincoln government had jurisdiction which as maryland and other states control. Slave did not boat into the confederate states of america so it did not apply to them but it applied to states where they did not exercise meaningful sovereignty such as texas. That's a slippery too. Clever by half. And so i understand what people are reluctant to hang their hat on the emancipation proclamation and my understanding is that the first juneteenth was actually celebrated the next year. I in one thousand sixty six is that right. I mean excuse me. Eighteen sixty.

"If you can combine these deep blue seeds with representatives that support wall street that is the tipping factor or. It's not just wall street. It's our prison industrial complex. It's our military industrial complex. You all of these all of these fingers. Same hand and so the key. Is these deep blue seats supporting these atrocious policies that are supported by payday lenders. All of these folks and once that starts once you kind of get a crack in that it gets very very scary for a of these deep. Blue democrats are supported by those same interests. And so you know. I think that there's that and also seniority. In the house is a whole different ballgame so people wanna protect those kind of the structural procedural power over that derives and so all of that kind of combines for the protection of policies and kind of this center of the universe that that is these very well funded but but let kind of least representative interests. So does that is that part of the strategy. I mean as you look. I mean obviously like you know. I think you're in a position that i think very few frankly freshman congress People have ever been in for that matter You have an ability. Fundraise that challenges people who've been there for decades you have name recognition that is You know in many ways on parallel. So when you're thinking about how to to build these coalitions is going for those blue state. Democrats in those blue and deep blue seats. Who are in your words. If i if i if i understand what you're saying basically providing cover for the rest of the the caucus to move to the right because they're ostensibly in the deepest blue seats Is that is that part of the theory. Go after those and turn those i well. I think that those times have be though seats tend to be very accessible for the progressive. Movement's right it's it's it's accessible to the progressive movement. It's a lower lifting resources because it's already in our pocket right where whereas yes you can. I believe that you can swing a seat with a progressive candidate absolutely also cost fifteen million dollars to do so for one vote whereas you can run. We can better use our small dollar. Take that ten million scattered around other seats. And then even even if you don't end up you know even if you don't if that candidate doesn't end up pulling through at the end you still get a dramatic shift in the incumbents behavior as well and that should not go ignored either When i was running against joe crowley he all the sudden. I announce that i was going to run for congress from behind a bar and i was behind a bar working branch. A coffee shop. When i found out that he signed onto medicare for all a week or two later as so then he started co-sponsoring all of these progressive policies. Just by the fact that i was running even when i had fun raised anything and so i think it's it it's more you kind of get more bang for your buck in in that sense but it also takes very good progressive candidates you know and i think that's something that we need to be disciplined about as well. It's not just you know it's not just about supporting any person. Just rolls through and slaps a bunch of progressive policy on their websites. It's about does. This candidate have a history in the community. Do they have a context. Cultural racial socioeconomic context with community. Have they served in any way. Doesn't mean that you know. Have you worked yourself up the ladder of electoral politics but but jamaal bowman principal for twenty years. He knows these families he knows these kids and he can effectively champion vs policies. In a way that you know it is. It is more than social in incredibly important role. But it's also goes much deeper into kind of this candidates service and is there a real deal here. Is there a history here right all right. So lastly last question for you Once you've you know would the dust settles and we get A a house After the twenty eighteen election let's assume For the sake of argument that the democrats take the presidency. They take the even the senate what what did he get. Forty percent of the democratic caucus is progressive. How do you worked at inside game and make you know. At least there's a plurality there right what's the strategy to assert more progressive power within the caucus where they're clearly seems to be some breaks on that. Yeah i mean even we even have to be careful when we say forty percent of the caucasus progressive as well because there are moves that are made where the progressive caucus actually has no entry standards like in order to join the progressive caucus. You don't have to sign onto medic medicare for all your have to be a co-sponsor the green deal. There's no kind of you don't have to not be financed by corporate tax. There's no real pledge you just kind of pay the caucus choosing your in and so as a consequence. There are a lot of these deeply democrats who say they're part of the progressive caucus. But actually we aren't pushing progressive policies behind closed doors. In fact they worked against them and so for is. I think it's it's still a continued on any real continued pressure on on progressive. Movement's and those folks that say that are progressive because forty percent is a lot even if we're able to expand that majority in the house which i believe is also possible. Now we're talking about making real movements.

"But but at the end of the day there is a corporate consolidation of power. There's a very strong corporate wing and the democratic party that we have to continue to organize against and we are starting to expand that power. Yeah i mean. Let's talk about how how that how that works. I mean right. Now we're watching A race In a district next to yours The sixteenth Jamaal bowman is doing very well against eliot angle that we can only tell so much at this point. We're gonna know more. Obviously at the end of the day tuesday but the It seems to me that is sort of been a. That's a little a lesser of what you're talking about here right. Chuck schumer just jumped in to endorse in that race. Like why is chuck schumer. That why is there this level of you know you mentioned why is wall street going after you. Your one vote. You're in you know like today. Really expect to have a wall street. Crony representing the bronx Is there this much i mean. Are we seeing like a fight. Against progressives for the sake of saying we're going to beat progressives as opposed to like we need elliott angle in there because we need that vote against the next bill the next deal against iran. Yeah i do think that there is kind of a disproportionate iron aimed at progressives But i mean maybe it's just me talking personally because i am one But i also think that you know. Two years ago. When i won against joe crowley it was kind of an emperor has no clothes type of moments and i think that people got extremely concerned because he's not the only wine that is in that type of position and because the thing when it comes to corporate power especially the democratic party is that there's more of us are debt That there are of them. And by that i mean there are more progressives progressive voters and people in the democratic party. Our policies are more popular than there are numerically of people who support for policies. And i said back then. And i say it. Now you know we've got people and they've got money and in order for this kind of corporate hegemony to sustain itself. It requires democrats in deep blue seats to support things like payday lenders wall street brokers private equity takeovers tra and. That's been.

We decided to spend an entire day with her and we went to her apartment and we walked around her neighborhood. And and i got to spend a good amount of time with. I mean there was no abbreviation of her name except she was alex not ao. See this like huge thing at the time. And i just remember thinking okay. This person's legit. We had a really warm interaction. And i just felt like i knew her for a long time and It was it was a really exciting moment.

Best games of 2020: Among Us

"Another unexpected breakout success. Definitely not cyberpunk twenty seventy seven but a little old game called among us. it's an online multiplayer. Game centered around you and your friends. Essentially completing a lot of different tasks to keep your spaceship running while one or several of your teammates are actually trying to kill you. This cultural phenomenon is an indie game created by just three developers. its way of helping. People feel connected. Became a big deal with influencers. But what really sealed the deal is when leading up to the election congresswoman alexandria ocasio. Cortez played the game live on the streaming platform twitch as part of an effort to get people out to vote over. Four hundred thousand joined the livestream raising two hundred thousand dollars but among us wasn't a twenty twenty release. You've seen so many interesting success stories this year in really surprising places. One of the biggest stories of the year was among us among us was a game that came out in two thousand eighteen. It it was a tiny tiny tiny indie game made by a couple of people. Truly just a handful of people that nobody paid attention to in two thousand eighteen and this was the game like it was good in two thousand eighteen. Just nobody knew about it. Even though among us was an unlikely success giovanni worries that most indie games which rely on building up industry buzz at trade shows could be in trouble. The thing that actually is the most troubling thing that comes out of all of this is actually as it pertains to indie games from my perspective. The way that indie games make their money and the way that they get notoriety and become known is they go and they do the work in person they go to conventions like e. three which is the big video game convention which got cancelled this year and they put their names on the show floor and that gets word of mouth out about them but at the same time it also gets them in front of the eyes of investors and publishers. Who are actually gonna give them the money to release these games like with independent movies. It's indie games with small teams and small budgets that could be hit the hardest by the pandemic though if there is one industry that's gaining new followers and could probably thrive in a virtual business environment. It's probably video games. In general games. Were really prepared for this moment in some way because if you look at the last couple of years of how the industry has developed it's been really cleared that games have been moving towards the sort of like. Hey we're all going to have to be digital at some point you know whether it's whether it's through being away from one another long distances or or something like this games have been preparing for this really really well you know. Multi-player games of the last year have only gotten bigger and bigger so all of those pieces kind of came together this year where it was like. Hey we know all of this is rough and we know that a lot of industries film and sports are going to have a really hard time figuring out how to deal with this. We've got this.

Blunt says there's "plenty of time" to confirm Ginsburg's replacement

"There's a large number of Republican senators who said in 2016, There should not be a vote on a Supreme Court nominee in an election year that was the principal. They laid down explicitly in order to block President Obama. How many of them are changing their minds? Well, all of them, but I would say also in the course of this time, McConnell and Republicans have always made the argument that what the standard was in 2016 is because the Republicans controlled the Senate and Democrats controlled the White House and they say when the same party controls both That's standard doesn't apply. This is, of course, a completely arbitrary standard. This is not about the rules of the Senate, but it is happening within the confines of the Senate. The mature sounds like one of those sounds like one of those obscure baseball statistics like saying this is the 3rd 3rd baseman since 1972 to bat to 70 left handed. I mean, it's such a narrow standard that they claim to off Appel. But I do have to stop a note. That wasn't what McConnell statement Wass. At the moment the vacancy occurred, he said, The people should decide that was the principal. He laid out. But please proceed. That is true. And this is what I'm saying. It's an arbitrary standard that they've set. But it's within their power of the majority and Senator Roy Blunt Mazari. He's a member of the leadership team. He told CBS's face the Nation yesterday. He believes they could do it before the election should take us long as it needs to take. But no longer There is plenty of time to get this done, and Republicans are lining up behind McConnell. Just two senators, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Susan Collins of Maine have said they oppose going forward before the election. You need to be two more senators to say the same thing to stop the process. It's also going to matter who the nominee is and how fast they could move. But I'd note that those two federal judges that Mar just mentioned have already been vetted, and they have already been supported by people like Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski. And it is the Senate's power under the Constitution as you point out, so what options if any, to Democrats have very few. They have a handful of minor delaying tactics, Days, not weeks here, but Chuck Schumer's the top Democrat in the Senate, he's publicly warning Republicans that there will be retribution if the party takes control of the Senate in this November elections, which is very possible. Progressives and activists are calling for Democrats to do literally everything possible to try to slow this down until after the election. This is Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, speaking yesterday in New York. We all need to be more courageous. And we all must must act in unprecedented ways to make sure that that our rights are stabilized. And to Mitch McConnell, we need to tell him That he is playing with fire. There's

"And but it were. The speed in which is being subsumed by what you're talking about the corporations and you know twenty five percent off on all furniture. This you know June eighteenth. I mean I. Don't know how far away we are from that. Seems to be. Maybe it's just. Are you know it's just the nature of our society today, but having be interpreted properly and celebrated properly seems to be. Hugely important, and it's almost like it's also. It's. It's shocking that we don't that. This is that it hasn't really occurred to the society at large to celebrate this particularly. I mean I've come to understand through frankly from your work and and and others you know a looking into reconstruction. You know much of what happened much of the America that we live in today is formed in those in those years from sixty five to I. Guess You know seventy five I mean the reconstruction has at least set up a template for our civil society today, and I. It sort of. I mean it's shocking that we don't have anything to sort of commemorate in and to make people consistently aware of it. Well, if the forty fifth president were on the line, I'm sure he would intervene and say. He said in the Wall Street today that actually the popularity of June team has a lot to do with himself. He says this when he decided to have this rally. WanNa take place impulsive tomorrow on June twenty originally was June nineteen. He said he brought a lot of attention to this idea and help the thrust into the spotlight, and so you may want to give him a shout-out or give them a pat on the back. As a result of say that the rooster helping to bring. The Sun into the sky in the morning. For example by crowing. But in any case Your as a very serious question, as to the fact that slavery oftentimes goes unremarked in the face American. I remember in two thousand seven. When. Britain was marking the end Britain's role in the African slave trade, eighteen, seventy two hundredth anniversary in two thousand seven. Then prime, minister, Tony Blair smoke. The Queen spoke. It was a big deal. It took me a remark. Independent States in America, even though, of course, United States of America was a major slave trading nation. It was even the recipient of many of the enslaved brought on English and British vessels. And I think there's a certain level of. Conflict with wavering this country because it tends to rough. The Immaculate Conception area of the creation of the United States creation myth. That see the creation of seventeen seventy sixers bill, being flawless and perfect, of course the how to the New, York Times or won a Pulitzer Prize just recently for an essay and August, two, thousand, nineteen, marking what she said, it was two hundred, four, hundred four hundred bursary of the arrival like African was she suggested. That the slavery something to do with seventeen seventy six, and of course all hell broke loose. The establishment of stories. Began to. Hacker and scroll with terms and actually stopped. To this very day, which I think is unfortunate because. As? Many leading story of. Our obligation to history is too frequently. Rewrite it. And frequently reinterpreted because. Different generations, oftentimes the different historical needs. And I think that that's what's happening today. As we speak, a younger generation is looking for an interpretation of the fat. The past helps them understand the president and I think a lot of the pass interpretations. Helped to bolster are kind of liberal narrative with put liberals in the forefront. Of. The struggle and Matt Guess make them feel good about the united. States and it tended downplay. Indigenous dispossession intended to basically. Indicate. There were more people involved in abolitionist movement than there actually were. and so now people are looking for an explanation for trumpism I mean. How do we reach the brink of catastrophe? We reach this precipice. And this sort of over the terminating of liberal of as being the motive, driving force decrease down. Stinks doesn't fit what trumpism doesn't who asks up today we cannot save. This will be defeated on the first Tuesday the number. So I think that ran once, he gets crying out or new interpretation and I think also that the black community is crying out 'cause the black community is trying to explain this carnage in the streets. Trying to explain this pornography of violence captured on. This leading to lynchings and public with officers of the state, nonchalantly executing this grisly tough while staring into the camera that they were talking. CIGNA Walk in the Sunday Department. I, you th. That's fascinating. I mean just to because I really do feel I mean that. I am personally in terms of like. My understanding of history has changed. Dramatically! Over the past I don't know a five or six years. I would say based around the question of of of race in this country the you know I. Think I've said in the past I. Think it's it's. Carol Anderson's white rage I think sort of just was one of the pieces that came together for me to see that there's a real continuum here I mean and I think that's what you're suggesting. Is that you know we need to reevaluate history to get a sense of exactly how we are estimation as a society of what paths we took Have Been do not jive with where we have ended up on some level, and it suggests that maybe. We didn't follow the map that we thought we followed. Do, you think that said do think that there is a a danger in looking at slavery as a binary. Slavery is in and of itself as binary on some level, but the the the forces behind slavery, the societal context in which slavery is created. Is Not is not binary in other words that like like you. You know you got the mets. Emancipation proclamation than you get you know this it read in in Texas, but if I remember correctly the general who ran it basically said like incidentally not much is GonNa change like you gotta go work, and you can't really get paid that much and that the the those forces.

"Official emancipation proclamation, regardless of what the the what's happening on the ground per se would have been in eighteen, sixty, five, as opposed eighteen, sixty, three, but What what what does it mean to celebrate that day as opposed to the day of the signing of the emancipation proclamation? Well first of all the traits left the station with regard to June. Teeth I think it's hard to claw back that particular date. Particularly since Congress is moving forward. Black organizations wholeheartedly endorse June teams. It's mark a believe in forty seven different states and the District of Columbia. We expect Hawaii to join the forty seven sooner rather than later, and so I think that the important is having a on which there is a solemn remembrance of the horrific nature of slavery, and then using that process to connect the hearts of the past with the carnage of the present. Recently seen on the streets of Minneapolis the streets Atlanta. Staten Island and many other bloody sites or to numerous to mention. That's import. With regard to Memphis facing proclamation, you may know that many historians. Black story had been revising their opinion. Shall we say of emancipation proclamation? This idea that it did not apply to areas over which the Lincoln government had jurisdiction such as Maryland and other US states that console slave, but did not boat into the confederate states of America. Did Not apply to them, but applied to states. Where they did not exercise municipal sovereignties as Texas. That's a bit slippery too clever by half, and so I understand why people are reluctant to hang their hat on the emancipation proclamation. And my understanding is that the first June eighteenth was actually celebrated the next year in nineteen sixty six. Is that right I? Mean? Excuse me eighteen sixty six. Well sure and. As, we speak and southeastern. Texas, they're going to be many. Remember I. Mean it's. It's a grassroots project. I mean it's it's. It's an and I think this is south link should. It's a project that came from the grassroots that came from below. That is to say from black people themselves. And then it's adopted by other. There's adopted by twitter adopted by the corporations is adopted by states. Colombian now introduced to the Congress and to me. That's a model of how we get a day off. That's pay. Right right, but I mean, is it I mean I? Guess and you know and I guess you know part of having You know part of the reason why I wanted to have a historian such as yourself on.

"Of of of of what June team is about that. It was a that. It marks the A day. June nineteenth in eighteen, sixty five, when centrally the emancipation proclamation was read in. I think it was Galveston Texas Tell us more about just the the basic facts of this of this holiday. Yes and first of all the sixteenth century book is now out, so you give me your address I'll send you a copy, but in any case with regard to June teams June nineteen, eighteen, sixty, five Major General Gordon, granger of the Union army, shows up in Galveston Texas, or off the coast of south, east Texas not far distant from Houston Texas from where I am now speaking, and according to the traditional story tells me enslaved that they're free. Recall that the civil war had ended in April eighteen, sixty five a couple of months earlier. But Even though I support the move, and of course there's just been a bill introduced in Congress to make June teen, a federal holiday and Corporations like twitter of stolen March one Congress by renting their employees June teeth have the day off, and I support that wholeheartedly, but the stories actually a bit more complicated than that traditional narrative. First of all the emancipation proclamation. Coming into effect in January eighteen, sixty three. Not necessarily apply to areas. Where understates states not exercise effect the Father Anti, and that certainly included Texas a bulwark of the so called confederate states of America. That's a seat on the United States and they eighteen sixty one in order to perpetuate slavery forevermore. And then secondly there was this lingering feeling among slaveholders and Texans. That if the confederacy collapsed Texas, which, after all had been an independent country between eighteen, thirty, six and eighteen, forty five. And only join the Union in eighteen forty five, because it was up so under so much pressure from British abolitionist and other global abolitionists Morrison. And, so if the confederacy collapsed Texas at this idea. That it would rejoin. From which had succeeded in eighteen, thirty six, because Mexico would move to abolish slavery and eighteen twenty under president of African, indigenous origin speaking of some taking that'll. You may celebrate Cinco de Mayo here in the United States, which is a major holiday for people of Mexican origin which marks a-class between Mexican, foursome, and the French puppet forces under Maximilian. Maximilian of course had given a warm embrace to the confederate states of America. So the idea worth Texas in rejoin Mexico under Maximilian, but fortunately what happened is that the Mexican people in week with black soldiers I should add including George. Washington, Williams who was an early black historian. Collaborate soon squash, Maximilian leading execution, a putting paid to this diabolical idea of extending the lease on life of slavery, things Texas enslavers hell deer. However I should say that. Unpaid Labor for Africans. Did Not necessarily in magically in June eighteen sixty five continue for some time. How long is unclear and certainly a kind of Neil? Slavery arises the ticket. Speaking of the convict lease system we're about black men in particular, were arrested on one the pretext, and then Lee in mass to the same plantation owners. Who supposedly had freedom on June nineteenth, eight, hundred, sixty five, so if I hear you your your I guess. Ambivalence is a function of. people misunderstanding exactly what happened at that moment and that taxes was really. This isn't about this isn't about Texas pride and it really isn't in many respects about A. A status change of sorts.

Democrats in those blue deep blue seats, who are in your words if I, if I if I, understand, you're saying basically providing cover for the rest of the the caucus to move to the right because they're ostensibly in the deepest blue seats. Is that is that part of the theory go after those, and in turn those I well, I think that those tend to be though seats tend to be very accessible for the progressive movement's right. It's it's. It's accessible to the progressive movement. It's a lower lift in resources because it's already in our pocket. Right where whereas yes, you can I believe that you can swing a seat with progressive candidate. Absolutely, we'd also cost fifteen million dollars to do so for one vote whereas you can run. A We, we can better use our small dollar. Resources Take that ten million scattered around other seats, and then even even if you don't. End Up you know even if you don't if that can't. It doesn't end up pulling through at the end. You still get a dramatic shift in the incumbents behavior as well, and that should not go ignored either. When I was running against Joe Crowley? He all the sudden. You're announced that I was going to run for Congress from behind a bar in I was behind a bar, working branch a coffee shop when I found out that he signed onto Medicare for all like a week or two later, and so then he started co-sponsoring all of these progressive policies just. Just by the fact that I was running, even when I hadn't fundraiser anything yet, and so I think it's it it's more you kind of get more bang for your buck in in that sense, but it also takes very good progressive candidates, and I think that that's something that we need to be disciplined about as well. It's not just you know. It's not just about supporting any person who just rolls through and slaps a bunch of progressive policies on their websites. It's about. Does this candidate history in the community? Do they have a context? A cultural racial socioeconomic context with committee have they served? In any way doesn't doesn't mean that you know having worked yourself up the ladder electoral politics, but But Jamal. Bowman is a school principal for twenty years. He knows these families. He knows these kids I'm and he can effectively champion these policies in a way that you know it is. It is more than social media's in incredibly important role, but it also goes much deeper into kind of his can't service, and is there a real deal here? Is there a history here right all right so last last question for you Once you've you know with the dust settles and we get a a house you know after the twenty eighteen election. Let's assume for the sake of argument that the Democrats take the presidency. They take the the even the Senate. What? What did he get forty percent of the Democratic Caucus is progressive. How do you work that inside game and make? At least there's a plurality there right? What's the strategy to assert more progressive power within the caucus where they're clearly seems to be some breaks on that. Yeah I mean an even even have to be careful when we say forty percent of the Caucasus progressive as well because there are moves that are made where. The Progressive Caucus. Has No entry standards like in order to join the Progressive Caucus. You don't have to sign onto medic. You don't have to be a co-sponsor. Medicare raw. Cosponsored Green Deal? There's no kind of don't have to not be. Financed by corporate. There's no real pledge. You just kind of pay the Caucus Susan you're in and so as a consequence. There are a lot of these deeply Democrats. WHO say they're part of the Progressive Caucus, but actually aren't pushing progressive policies behind closed doors. In fact, they were against them, and so for us I think it's it's still a continued on any like real continued pressure on on Progressive Movements and those folks that say that they are progressive, because forty percent is a lot, even if we're able to expand that majority in the house, which I believe is also possible. Now we're talking about making real movement, and so I think it requires a lot of outside pressure, but. I'd. We're going to have to also work a lot on on on supporting the standard bearers in uplifting them in positions of power. You Know Barbara Lee ran for chair of the Democratic Caucus. She was essentially. Undercut. By a more conservative wing of the Party and so we really need. We need to have our inside game in terms of up listening and making sure that we're surging some of those progressive standard-bearers at in the same way that we also had an outside game because when you have you know formula giant, Paul, or Barbara Lee or any one of these progressive leaders, Ilhan. I on Presley, et Cetera, pushing on whether it's the car social policy weather is healthcare policy whether it's. Foreign foreign policy beyond at we have to make sure that we've got their back in that. We are that we are heaping. Attention to the inside fights as they are happening because so often. The reason we lose them is because folks. Realized that votes happen after they happen, whereas corporate elements of the Party are very well tuned tune to the business on the floor and really got forty eight hours before a vote is the most important forty eight hours in determining outcome. They've got the resources to do a little more advanced planning as it were. That's right, congresswoman. Thank you so much for coming on good luck on Tuesday really appreciate it We're big fans here. My daughter is a is a huge fan and I have now. Become much cooler in her eyes. Will all right thank you so much. I appreciate. By? All right folks. We're GONNA.

"Up. I'm going to go ahead and guess you're having a tough week. We're GONNA talk about a reason for hope next. It's been a difficult week. And there is little indication that these coming days are going to be anything but worse but with all this grim news it is worth reminding you of two things one. We are going to get through this and to. It's also worth noting some of the good that we're seeing some of the humanity to start. Millions of Americans are showing great care for their neighbors this week by practicing social distancing and staying inside and giving up their routines to in order to keep high risk individuals virus free and there are there are other people worth singling out to thank the helpers as Mr Rogers once called them. Jay Powell a Pre Med student in Reno. Who's using the time she would normally spend on learning to organized free grocery deliveries to the sick and to the elderly. She calls her volunteers across the country. Shopping Angels restaurant owners are having a tough time figuring out how to make ends meet so it was a welcome surprise for some in Jonesboro Arkansas when their landlord told them don't worry about next month's Rent I've been in this industry for twenty seven years and I've never seen anything like this. We consider them family. We don't consider them. Employees School. Bus Drivers are using their buses to deliver meals to students. Who Need Them Students? Who aren't getting the school lunches.

We can were in it together. We'll get through it and we just all need to hang in there and support each other. The best we can. That's what she said and I cannot improve on that stay.

"Now joining California New York New Jersey and Connecticut telling its non-essential workers stay home the governor of Illinois says the move could potentially save tens of thousands of lives joining me. That governor Jay Pritzker Governor Pritzker. Thanks so much for joining us. You said last weekend that quote. We're on our own out here. I wish we had leadership from Washington or not getting it. Since then FEMA has been put in charge of the response. You just heard FEMA administrator. Peter Gainer Respond to some of my questions a week later. Is it better? Do you still feel like you're on your own. It is better. We really were getting very little help before. Think FEMA being the central repository for everything that we need is very helpful. We're not having to Ping different agencies and I do think FEMA is more prepared for this. Then the other agencies were So for example We have received some e in the past couple of weeks About a quarter of what was an original request We just just got a call this morning before I went on the air that we're going to receive another shipment of PP later today or tomorrow from Fema but it's a fraction still of what we've requested. We need millions of masks and hundreds of thousands of gowns and gloves and and the rest and Unfortunately we're getting still just a fraction of that. So we're out on the open market competing for these items that we so badly need and we're succeeding in some ways but we still need more people on the phones working. The phones calling you know across the world frankly to get the stuff ship. Illinois. That seems kind of a weird way to do it. Though doesn't it I mean you. Competing with Governor of California competing with Governor Cuomo of New York. I mean that doesn't seem like very efficient way to and not to mention thrifty way to get these supplies to the states as soon as possible. That's correct we're all competing against each other. This should have been a coordinated effort by the federal government and the national defense authorization that the president has to essentially Push this manufacturing really. Hasn't gone into effect in any way And so yes. We're we're competing against each other. We're competing against other countries You know it's a it's a wide Wild West I would say. Out there and indeed were overpaying. I would say for people because of that competition you issue to stay at home order for the entire state of Illinois took effect last night. You're one of five states now to do that. Your neighboring states have not issued such an order Wisconsin Indiana etc. Will your order work if other states are not doing the same? Look these orders that the governors have lead on you know. I led with canceling gatherings of a certain size in our state and then we closed schools. We've moved on now to a stay at home order. These should have been done nationally. They haven't been but I've got to protect the twelve point. Seven million people that live in my state and dedicated to that. It's their health and safety that matters most to me it will work. It will work remember. We people are interacting every day in every way possible and unless we tell people to stay home and to stop interacting in the way that they were we're going to see more and more thousands more tens of thousands of more deaths than we otherwise would so. That's why I had to take the action that I did. I don't relish it. Frankly this is a competition in the decision making between saving lives and saving livelihoods. And I've I've had to make some tough decisions here but I believe this is the right thing to do well. Let's talk about how to save. The people help. The people whose livelihoods are being threatened if not destroyed lawmakers here in DC or right now scrambling to pass this unprecedented one point seven trillion dollar aid package to help the American economy. One of the last sticking points whether to spend more on sending checks directly to members of the public or to put that money into state unemployment programs for the states to distribute. What would you like? Well look we're going to have to do a lot There's no doubt that the economy is being significantly harmed by the delays that the federal government had during January and February. Getting going dealing with us. That's why we've all had to go on a stay. It's sad home orders or keeping kids at and closing bars and restaurants and so on. So what would I like I I? We've got to fund unemployment. There's no question about that and the federal government needs to step up. It appears to be stepping up on that as far as sending checks to individuals. I I certainly think that That that should be means tested There's no reason to send a check to Michael Bloomberg I for a thousand dollars. So if that's something the federal government decides to find but there's another thing that isn't really being talked about which is state governments out here as I said we're on our own and we're having to spend quite a lot of money to do things that really are the job of the Federal Government. But we're doing it because I've got to protect the people here all across the country. Our budgets are going to be slammed. Revenues are going down no doubt precipitously and our spending has to go up. Because we're we're saving people's lives and you know we're trying to at least put some money in their pockets so we need help. We would like block grants to the states. We've gotta go back. No doubt to the two thousand eight era to look at what was done there and trying to replicate those in fact bigger because that is what is necessary in this time of National Emergency. So governor last question for you. I'm sure you're getting pushback from business leaders we've seen op eds written and editorials written in the Wall Street Journal and other places suggesting that what the government is doing a is by is harming the economy which will ultimately be a cure that causes more pain than anything else. What's your response? When you hear business leaders say that to you well I I would say those op-eds age. Well I think when you look back on it a year from now That's not gonNA look like it was the right thing to right at the time. Here's what I would say the business people in Illinois frankly have been so incredibly generous They many of them have offered paid leave to their employees. Many of them are doing whatever they can to help us. In the state I have a number of business people here who are acquiring for us in the state and so you know I know. This is very harmful to small businesses to all businesses. Really what we've had to do across the country but this is the right thing to do. We've got to save lives. Now is the moment. So this is what we are going to do in the business people who in Illinois frankly. I've been amazed every businessperson every CEO. That I've called and asked him to do something for the state or for their employees or for the people has stepped up to the plate. Thank you governor appreciate your time. Good luck to you. God bless hope. Goes Ok for our friends out there. Roughly half the US Corona.

Mr. Trump sees into his administration as threat to the nation and economic miracle is taking place in the United States. And the only thing that can stop it.
