"This was the first time they were coming out together. I think. It's actually a very stark visual with the before times that you have a opponents to the current occupant of the white. House in masks. Demonstrating just how far we've come from before Donald Trump was the president and I think that you know what they demonstrated today is that they do have a warm relationship Joe Biden seem to fear a bit emotional as she spoke eloquently about her relationship with his late son Beau, Biden and I think that that connection and most importantly ally this shared values that they both articulated. You know that Kamala Harris would be the last one in the room holding him accountable for those communities that are so excited today more reason not just because the diversity in the pretty picture of having someone indisposition we've never seen before but that we've never had some with this lived experience and perspective before in that position, and that's going to change policy in a transformational way. Boxer thought things were interesting. One is the video that was released by. Joe Biden of the moment in which he invited. Kamala Harris to be vice presidential candidate, and to is the Joe Biden said when Barack Obama chose him and asked him what he wanted. He said I wanted to be I wanna be the last person in the room when you make an important decision and he said, that's what I ask. Kamala Harris to do to be the last person as early I just said in the room important decisions. That's a big deal that sort of. Put this whole thing into into context for a lot of Americans who are watching it today. No question about it. This was a very important decision and at Joe Biden and Barack Obama had that chemistry. They respected each other and that was what he wanted in a running mate someone who he respected she respects back I thought was a flawless launch and I agree with the congresswoman jackson-lee. It's a healing ticket. You just look at the ticket and it says something. Before they say a word about, yes we can come together, which is what we're seeing in some of the peaceful protesters we can come I thought it was flawless joke great speakers I think they felt very comfortable together. earlier today Donald Trump. It's almost like he just sort of redid a tweet that he did the other day about invasion of low income people to suburban areas and how for some reason he keeps talking about cory. Cory Booker. Being in charge of it, which makes zero sense. But the suburban housewives thing he actually tweets it he says the quiet part out loud. I don't even know who calls anybody a suburban housewife but but. Couple of Harrison got to have some appeal to some of these people who Donald Trump is thinking that he's appealing to with these racist tropes. There are a whole lot of women in this country are looking at a couple of Harris who are not Republicans. Who you know who are looking at are saying this kind of amazing. I always say when people talk about suburban women that all women are not white alley and so it's really important when we're talking about the demographics of women going to the selection that we demarcate and say which one women were talking about or a woman Kamala Harris who has a multi-racial background in the fact that she identifies as black women, which is also the daughter of immigrants from Jamaica and India, and so the fulsomeness of who she is I think. It makes it difficult someone like Donald Trump who really does see things in the nineteen seventies lens or maybe even a madman lens of. Racial politics in black and white, and if you try to remind people that cory. Booker. Lack. Which is essentially what he is trying to do with these tweets, right? That's all it is. You know you know exactly who he's trying to speak to but that's not where this country is headed islay. The Democrats do not need a majority of white voters to win the Election Barack Obama did not win a majority of white voters. We had a Democrats have not want majority of white voters since nineteen, sixty four. So Joe Biden and Karma Harris do not need a majority of white orders. They do need to increase turnout of black round, an API orders, and that is the coalition that can bring them to victory potentially. So, Barbara Boxer would help to have a bunch of people who are either disaffected with Donald Trump. Her may think of themselves as Republicans, but don't really believe that there's a Republican Party certainly not like the Republican Party that existed when you were in Congress? So Republicans are trying this attack on on Cable Harris as being a leftist radical socialist Antifa supporter you know her and you know her policies and that's kind of ridiculous to. Laughing I really have it. You know if I were to define her politics in, it's very hard because she's an independent person but I'd say she's a mainstream progressive person and. Just just like Joe, Biden is really a mainstream progressive person and in some issues, chill. Move more the left in some issues should be centered some issue she might even right-of-centre you can't predict or she's not. She's not sim. L'an went into politics because she had this philosophical desire to become part of a particular wing of the party she sees trouble and she wants to fix it and I just feel. So strongly when they when he says trump suburban women, I was a suburban women who Didn't have job in beginning I was I had to stay home with my little kids and then I got into the workforce when about six years old now here's the thing about suburban women. Win Suburban Women of any color creed anything. Her George. Floyd cry out for his mother. I would argue. That just touched their heart no matter where they live. So he can say suburban moms all want. All he wants a dog whistle and these issues. What about suburban MOMS who were don't know what to do because they don't they're scared about sending their kids to school. You know they're afraid that their mom and dad who were over seventy five in a die the virus. So the suburban MOMS are very right. Riding Paris ticket. I think. Barbara Boxer Center. Thank you very much. Zelina Maxwell. Thank yous earlier is going to be sitting in this guest host share on Friday night. I appreciate that. Because I got a different show I gotta do. Forward to that later on this week. If you thought the whole. Well, you're only me the our off I'm coming back at ten o'clock, but we will see each other on on Friday night.

"Also your professional experience, right? You know what track record do you have of actually putting actions to your words? It's the moment and what people are looking for. But I do think that biography is important. In fact, if you think about the folks who have been elected. In the modern era of politics, especially on the democratic side. Whether it was Brock Obama or Bill Clinton, or Jimmy Carter, a lot of that good significant amount of that of their peel was biography. And so, you know, I'm trying to make sure that people know about my life experience. But also everything else that might track record of getting things done and my vision for the future of the country. You're one of the most progressive candidate in terms of being on the reparations issue were one of the early supporters of it. There was a hearing this week on the reparations question, do you think it's realistic to propose that as a democrat, or do you think that's polarizing white voters away from Democrats? I think we should do it that it's been a long time in coming, and, you know, I've said so many times that this is a long overdue conversation and the legislation that congresswoman Jackson Lee has in place has been there for a while. This is not the first year that, that pose HR forty and I think that it's time that we take that up. And also, as you know, joy, I mean, what's on the table is, is a commission to look at reparations and then make a recommendation. Right. So that we can I see this analysis to the truth and reconciliation commission in South Africa, an opportunity for healing. You know, so that we can get to a point in our country, where we all come together in a positive way. And that's why I talk about moving forward as one nation with one destiny. I don't think we can ever truly move forward until we address the original sin of slavery. And I watch Mitch McConnell. The other day say that because we elected and African American president. Is reparation? Anybody listen to that knows that, that, that, that does not reflect the kind of healing that we need to go through the way that we need to address that pass. And I asked you about your biography because we're at a moment right now where the president is demonizing demonizing, migratory multi. I mean it's black and Brown black. Immigrants are terrified to of all these raids, but there's this demonization of migrants from Central America. I think Donald Trump thinks they're all from Mexico. Maybe it is really unprecedented. What we're hearing about the conditions that little kids, babies infants in diapers are being treated without their clothes lying on the floor.

"We are watching as tensions are increasing, at least in rhetoric. And hopefully it is not going to ask you on that, but it is getting concerning each week, Iran and the United States of President Trump, sending more troops into the Middle East. We're monitoring that. We also looking at the twenty twenty race Joe Biden who is leading all the polls is in a controversy with other candidates for saying that he can work with people don't disagree with. He worked with racist, segregationist. He called the name and. One of them, he said was the meanest man in the world. They said it was cozying racist cozying segregated. Camera Harris says that didn't understand the history of our country. And the dark history of the country, but Cory Booker. Meeting call him to apologize. Bernie Sanders who is now number three in the latest poll is warranted ahead of attacked a little more and Biden came back saying he was not going to is he did not glorify him. He was talking about how you have to work, sometimes with people, you don't agree with. And that's what this congress doesn't understand. Congressman Jim Clyburn, who's hosting all of the candidates, which I'm going on Saturday in and tomorrow in Carolina said that he was not offended by what Biden said, because he himself had had to work racist, like strong, Thurman in South Carolina. We get your views on that going back and forward. And then, of course yesterday, he hearing congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee. Started of congressional hearing on reparations in the nation's capital and several people are testified, including Danny Glover, and Senator Cory Booker, and others, and it is a subcommittee of the judiciary committee, and it was the first time that it got that far, but we want to know where will it go? I wanna keep on this and I'm gonna keep making this initial back. I think congresswoman Jackson Lee. Let me play. She in opening statement thanked we did at the national action that were convention to help set the tone yesterday. Isn't it? Nation on the importance of extra forty. Convention, because he asked fifteen presidential candidates what their position. And we. A national level. And that is the point of a lot of people debating. Point that need to be debated need to be heard. But. Don't understand the first thing is you have to make an issue. And then get to how we're going to execute what is done. The quickest way. And the most of fictive way to stop anything from proceeding is by everybody getting into their little policy arguments now. So we lose the opportunity to move forward because we start getting into little fights. Who's this was that who that I don't like that? They didn't mad enough. This who's going to get the river isn't money educate. I mean I we've got it on the national presidential jotted that bit. It continued to other comps. She's got a congressional here. Let us establish that there's going to be a commission. Then we can debate who's got to be on the commission. But there's no reason that is like arguing about what you're gonna wear to a prom. You haven't been invited to yet. There is no prom yet. Let's I get that done, then we can debate about who needs beyond 'cause I'm certainly gonna fight to make sure people that have historically fought this fight should be on it. But that fight comes after there, something to be on has been a step. And then we have a fight on what it is that we want to get done. So I give her credit for bringing it that fall. And let me tell you some of the people complaint. On not bad to do anything but be disrupted. Some of the loudest voices on social media, Russia Choji, because Russia, they proved had a bake black activists sites. Some of the folk on social media summit of focus, somebody's gatherings that act like data hang in the most militant. And we never heard him before won't hear from sense are there to be disrupt some awhile, intention, and just doesn't understand that you got to go for a long hard, fight some bear willinted. But some of them are just there to disrupt. Some working for others to disrupt, but it ended the day, semi say to me. Remount. How do you know who's on? How do you know who's working for the right way, the only way that, you can know without scratching your head and, and going crazy is go by what the results are will this lead to results if it doesn't lead to our getting a commission and getting real reparations, then whether they are disrupted agents or whatever doesn't matter. It doesn't it doesn't need to judged strategies and people in strategies. But what's in result going be today? I gotta worry about why they're doing it. It doesn't matter. It ain't gonna work if he's not going to support the end result. It don't work. Somebody else can figure out play as bil- or whatever show you on to play and together out what when and where you are all I wanna know it, don't work. I'm not interest. So I'm glad about. It's going that per step. But let's keep it going. And keep the heat also to keep it a real front and center issue, awesome Philadelphia, seventy two. Police were pulled after watchdog fans thousands of offices violent and racist social media posts in a few people have been calling in this show talking about that. I know our national action network. Philadelphia chapter deacon Smith and then have been on the front nine at some of our callers. Exposing that. And bringing that so seventy two the police department announced yesterday. It taken seventy two offices off the street in response to the discovery of thousands of pensive social media post by officers, and I think it's taking them off. The streets is just beginning of what ought to have a lot to talk about the day..

"You anymore to help your investigation than what you already doing? I mean, the White House has already you know, stonewalling subpoenas, not complying with those sort of actions. How would the resolution? You know, comply them to actually cooperate, when we had the folk wait of house behind it, then it does give it additional weight in the courts. But as as rather than just the committee. Yes. And the other piece of this is as congresswoman jackson-lee mentioned, I this is an extraordinary circumstance where we have an administration asserting blanket privilege over an entire document all of the underlying materials when there's no legal grounds to do that. I mean they executive privileges piece by piece with respect to specific items. You have to be able to say what your grounds are for that peace, and we're not saying anything like that. So it is just stonewalling. If I might the. Operates under the rules of the house on the congresswoman is right. Both congresswoman, right. What would happen is that you would have an actual referral and vote. And that needs an instruction by the house of representatives. We don't want to do any of this, if we can have our hearings and have the article to body respond as it should, and not pretend that a blanket executive privilege can be utilized, but we have to do our job. And certainly this is something that has to be discussed and deliberated on, and that will be the case, and it's only on the grounds of needing and having the duty of doing our job. We are. We are working in collaboration with our next. News conference today on Capitol Hill with three democratic members of the House Judiciary committee. Mary, gays Scanlon, Pennsylvania, Sheila, jackson-lee, and Sylvia Garcia, both from Texas. After a brief pause. The House Democrats began reading the entire report from special counsel, Robert Muller congresswoman gay Scanlon started off introduction to volume one. This report is submitted to the attorney general pursuant to Twenty-eight, CFR's fiction, six hundred point eight c which states that at the conclusion of the special counsels work, he shall provide the attorney general, a confidential report explaining the prosecution or declaration, decisions, the special counsel reach. The Russian government interfered in the twenty sixteen presidential election in sweeping and systematic fashion evidence of Russian government operations began to surface in mid twenty sixteen in June, the Democratic National Committee, and it's cyber response team publicly announced that Russian hackers compromise computer network releases of hacked materials hacks, that public reporting soon attributed to the Russian government began that same month additional releases followed in July through the organization WikiLeaks with further releases in October and November in late, July two thousand sixteen soon after WikiLeaks, first release of stolen documents a foreign government contacted the FBI about a may twenty sixteen encounter with Trump campaign foreign policy adviser George popadopoulos popadopoulos, had suggested to a Representative of that foreign government that the Trump campaign had received indications from the rush. In government that it could assist the campaign through the anonymous release of information damaging to democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton that information prompted the FBI on July thirty first two thousand sixteen to open an investigation into whether individuals associated with the Trump campaign were coordinating with the Russian government in its interference activities. That's two federal agencies jointly announced that the Russian government directed recent compromises of emails from US persons and institutions including US political organizations, and that these thefts and disclosures are intended to interfere with the US election process after the election in late December twenty sixteen the United States imposed sanctions on Russia for having interfered in the election. By early twenty seventeen several congressional committees. Examining Russia's interference in the election. Within the executive branch, these investigatory efforts, ultimately led to the may twenty seventeen appointment of special counsel, Robert S Muller, the third, the order appointing the special counsel authorized him to investigate the Russian government's efforts to interfere in the two thousand sixteen presidential election, including any links or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the Trump campaign. As Beth fourth in detail in this report, a special counsel's investigation established that Russia interfered in the two thousand sixteen presidential election principally through to operations. I a Russian entity carried out a social media campaign that favored presidential candidates, Donald J Trump and disparaged presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Second, a Russian intelligence service conducted computer intrusion, operations against entities employees and volunteers working on the Clinton campaign, and then released stolen documents investigation, also identified numerous links between the Russian government and the Trump campaign, although the investigation established that the Russian government perceived that it would benefit from a Trump presidency and worked to secure that outcome, and that the campaign expected that it would benefit electorally from information stolen and released through Russian efforts, the investigation did not establish that members of the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election in interference activities below. We described the evidence airy considerations underpinning statements about the results of our investigation, and the special counsels charging decisions, and we then provide an overview of the two volumes of the report. The report describes actions and events that the special counsel's office found to be supported by the evidence collected in our investigation in some instances the report points out, the absent absence of evidence or conflicts in the evidence about a particular factor event in other instances when substantial credible evidence enabled the office to reach a conclusion with confidence. The report states that the investigation established that certain actions or events occurred a statement that the investigation did not establish particular facts does not mean that there was no evidence of those fats in evaluating whether evidence about collective action of multiple individuals constituted a crime. We applied the framework of conspiracy law, not the concept of collusion in so doing the office recognized that the word collude was used in communications.

Stormy hearing we're going to turn to the KCBS ring central Newsline and speak with Sherri bebbits-jeffey, a political analyst and retired university of southern California, professor of public policy communication have you ever heard a similar exchange like ever never. I mean, my mouth dropped Patty that this is a really rude to that. We have an acting attorney general. This is not the way you need act should act at certainly chair of any committee in congress does not believe you should act when you are tearing before a congressional committee. I don't think the guy knows any better, quite frankly, he's never appeared before a an oversight committee hearing before he's really not he doesn't have the bona fide that he needs to have. To assume a cabinet level position. I just showed me that that the guys bore B O R, but come on. We've all watched hearings. He must have seen a hearing been briefed on what to expect a know that he doesn't run the show. He's there to testify as a witness witnesses do not tell judges and prosecutors, I I think your time is up better move on. Bingo. I mean that that's exactly what I'm saying. The guy. I'm not sure how well prepared. He was whether he was prepared at at all he comes across and from people who know him you hear that. He is arrogant. He can be overbearing he can be rude. But it truly truly took my breath away when he just simply now to chairman while you're five minutes are up, and and he did the same. I believe to congresswoman Jackson Lee. I mean, you may think that that nobody in congress deserves any respect that's your decision. That's your opinion. But that behavior was unpleasant unacceptable and uncalled for. So if you did that in a courtroom, the judge presumably what culture you in contempt of quarter? There would be some sort of penalty. I in this particular process. What's the way to say? Please don't I mean is there a similar penalty per se. Please don't do that again. I guess that they wouldn't use the word police, Patty. But again, I was being polite with a yes to polite I expect, but the congresswoman Jackson Lee, I've thought just sort of took him down very, well when she said, we are not joking here this. Yeah, we are serious and this is our job and he went on to answer her question. And I think that's all that he that could have been done. I mean, I don't think it's an offense that call rates, I taste of contempt of congress. But it's just not civil. It's just not polite, and I don't think it was very helpful in terms of what's going to happen. Now, the spin the media analysis the analysis of people who watch the hearing. I think we'll we'll be somewhat more negative. Ford of the acting attorney general than it might have been if his behavior were a little bit, more polite. I may be wrong. But let's you know, what the reality is years. What I think the reality is. Whitaker was playing to an audience of one. And I am sure Donald Trump ate it up. He loved it. Very good point.

"Year old girl appeared in Houston courtroom today. The girl's death captured national attention just for New Year's when the family said a white man had fired into their car. This suspect is African American and some people are saying the initial calls of a hate crime were irresponsible. Florian Martin of Houston public media reports. Jasmine Barnes died in the car. She was riding in with her mother and three sisters the family described the shooter as a white man in his thirties or forties. Driving a red pickup truck. The Harris County sheriff's office released a composite sketch and video of a truck racing away from the scene for nearly a week. Authorities were on the hunt for the alleged white killer. Civil rights activists got involved some offering Larcher awards at a rally held on Saturday much of the conversation. Revolved around race. Here's Texas congresswoman Sheila jackson-lee and do not be afraid to call this. What seems to be a hate crime. But the next morning the sheriff's office announced the arrest of Eric. Back junior a twenty year old African American he's charged with murder. Jasmine, Steph, prosecutors say black and an accomplice mistook the family's car for that of someone. They had gotten into an argument with the night before to a reporter's question on Sunday. Whether her comments were irresponsible congresswoman Jackson, Lee said absolutely not. It would be the kind of thing that lends itself to thinking if this description came in however way from my frightened harmful of young girls, baby girls, and they're frightened mother. Other questions have bubbled up some wondering authorities should not have released an image of a suspect that turned out nothing like the alleged perpetrator sheriff Edgardo was asked about it on Houston matters. A public media talk show. Sometimes the information that comes forward initially. I mean, that's that's what you have to go by less. You have other descriptors or information simply because if you have somebody that's out there firing upon families or children, we need identify. Those persons are individuals as quickly as possible Gonzales says it's possible. The driver of the pickup truck was the last person the family saw before the shooting, and they simply believed him to be the shooter Kevin Buckner teaches criminal Justice at the university of Houston downtown. He says witnesses can make such mistakes. He cites one case where a woman was sexually assaulted in her apartment the person who's being assaulted actually described for police a news person that she saw on the television set while the assault was taking place. The sheriff says the case isn't closed yet. He says there's one additional suspect and authorities would still like to speak to the driver of the red pickup truck to see if he can provide more details about the incident.

"One other ten general store, you might wanna pursue who's been tampering with Lindsey Graham sweeties, what's what's gotten into this guy over a lot of people were talking about it. He really does seem genuinely transformed by the events that he has witnessed here. I don't know that. I I don't think that it's transplant. I I've I've watched Lindsey Graham for I guess what nearly eighteen years now. And he's always been one of the most intriguing senators up here. He's very passionate about whatever he feels and he obviously feels passionately and he's the back quote of any senators he is by far the best quote on Capitol Hill, and he's putting that to us here. And it's it's it's it's really interesting to watch him at play. But quickly though, I want to say the other story on this. And I think probably does deserve more. Attention is the arrest of this democratic staffer last night for. Being charged with dachshund, the Republican senators, it was a democratic staffer for a congresswoman Sheila jackson-lee who was actually posting this private information of senators, and I'm surprised that's not getting more attention. I didn't know you were on that story as well. Because I definitely plan on talking about a little later in the program. Give us the latest on that. It was a statement. They keep saying former staffer is it is this a former staffer like as of now because this person got caught or had they been a former staffer, you know. So he he wasn't a former staffer in the Senate, and according to the affidavit that was filed a smarter this morning in this case he was asked to resign by Senator Maggie housing from New Hampshire democrat from New Hampshire. He was asked to resign from her office earlier this year, and the the affidavit doesn't say what that was about. And it'll be interesting to figure out why they ousted him. But he was apparently scooped up by congresswoman Jackson Lee in Texas. And you know, the reporting right now is that he was employed up until this this arrested this week, and the affidavit actually says it he snuck into the reason he got caught apparently is he snuck back into Senator hasn't office late Tuesday night like ten thirty at night on Tuesday and one of the other. Employees another staff were there aren't supposed to be here. What you doing and called the police on him? And then they started tracking things back and have tied him to the docking from from earlier from a bunch of different house network. Incredible. You're right. That deserves a lot more attention. And we'll certainly try to continue to focus. Our our light on it. Stephen dinan. That's and then again, this is something you would think that both Democrats and Republicans could join together and condemn because the Democrats don't wanna walk down this road. They don't they don't want staffers doing this kind of thing to them. On the other side, Stephen done, always good to talk to you, my friend didn't keep up the good work. You're gonna have sadly, I think you're going to have to work through the weekend. Again, I'll try and stay away. Political editor of the Washington Times one rest during a news cycle like this.

"Should all women. Be believed. Nope. If all women were believe, we wouldn't have any women in prison. You think there's no women prisons should every man be believed if someone walks up to you tonight and says if you give me five dollars, I'll give you fifty back. Should everybody be believed? No should everybody be respected. Yes. Vetted investigated taken seriously. Yes. Until the point where the facts fall away from the allegation until until the point where it breaks down. So initially. Take every woman seriously that brought these charges in these allegations, take them, seriously, investigate and vet and corroborate. But once it falls apart don't give it to the media to put half the country in a frenzy because you still can't win around. And the Democrats have been in this position now for several years. But this is how this got to this point judge Cavanaugh didn't take this to this point the Democrats took it this far with leaking. And I wanna point out one more thing about leaking leaking documents and information and violating people's privacy and violating secure documents. It happened this week day before yesterday. The news media didn't cover it. A democrat operatives who used to work for not only congresswoman Jackson Lee. But Senator Barbara Boxer. Also, a democrat from California. She she employed this particular guy. I think his last name. I don't want to get it wrong. I have it in my file. He's twenty seven years old democrat. He leaked information about Republicans. He docks Republicans all the Republicans that were on the judiciary committee that were supporting Cavanaugh the majority of whom were. He leaked all their personal information. So protesters in haters could get a hold of it. Go back more than two years. How did they get the Fiso warrant to get traction? How did that happen? Because the FIS a warrant was a piece of BS. It was garbage. It could not be corroborated. There were no facts. There was no foundation and the icing on the cake was the FIS warrant that accused. President Donald Trump of colluding with Russia was paid for by Hillary. But. The Democrats needed to get a hit on Trump. They needed to slap Trump with some scandal or something. So they leaked it. And the news media being the patsies. That so many of them are ran with it. Whether it was BuzzFeed or. Vice anybody we just need someone to run with this. So we can get people in a fever. So that turned out to be craft the Cavanaugh accusations turned out to be crap. Do you see the pattern here? But again. Just to review. Should we believe all accusers initially? So I don't. All right. So hold off on the sound. Okay. We're gonna play a sound bite coming in the five o'clock hour..

"All the protesting in the crying. And the asinine comments by celebrities and celebrities are among the most uninformed, and here's why they don't have to be. If you are a member of the elite, if you are so rich that no matter what happens at work. You're set for life. You don't even have to pay attention to anything. And so that's how we are live three. Oh, six as we await the confirmation of the next supreme court Justice of the United States. Judge Brad Kavanagh? You know, you know, who he is right. This week was some of the worst reporting I have ever seen, by the way. My name's Ken Matthews. Talk radio twelve ten WPA until six live. And we we will we're watching on a variety of sources. I don't know how how exciting it's gonna be to hear people confirmed their vote, but we're watching to see if something crazy happens like if a listen Milan over Chelsea handler gets into the chambers and throws their naked body on a cameraman. No new, but it looks it does look like he's gonna get confirmed. One of the most compelling testimony. I have this renewed respect for Senator Susan Collins of Maine. I always felt for years. She was kind of a moderate slash rhino. I always I always thought she was extremely professional. And I always thought she presented herself. Well, and yesterday, she headed out of the park, she pretty much laid out the argument that you, and I if you're Cavanaugh supporter, which I I am, and we all knew we all knew from the beginning that the Democrats were exploiting me to the same way. They exploited black lives matter the same way, they exploit illegal immigrants at the border export anything to slow down the progress of this country, especially if the progress of the country in the success of the country is tied to a conservative. Then it's Defcon four then they really have to derail it, and we knew this. We knew after this guy had a squeaky clean six back. Background checks from the FBI and a stellar judicial. Having read some of his ruling, she's a pretty objective guy. I mean, despite what some of the great thinkers on the democrat side say like, Jimmy Kimmel or joy Behar cabinet is a pretty straight shooter. He's a he's a constitutionalist. So if the constitution if that is the filter, which that's what should be the filter. The constitution of the United States should be the legal filter for all not not your cousins, boyfriends, emotions, not what you learned on the view. Not what your political science teacher told you at temple. That's not a filter. That's insanity. Most of the time. It's insanity. So if you really want to see what? Fair representation looks like and governance gone correctly knocked on wrong like it did during bomb. Unisom I want you to take a moment. Not during my show. Wait, wait till after I'm off the air and watch Senator Collins speech, she made yesterday before she said, she was going to support judge cavenaugh. It was brilliant. It was respectful. It was something that you don't get a lot from Democrats. She's not a democrat. But you don't see this from Democrats ever on the Senate floor. I haven't seen it. And if you have send it to me facts. She had research, and she had facts, she went point by point. She didn't say I'm voting for cavenaugh because Trump socks. I'm I'm I'm not doing this. Because so and so was horrible. I'm I'm Paul by. None of no she went piece by piece by piece, and she asked the question, how did this woman get so far with this false allegation with no facts, and should that derail the nomination of a very capable patriot. And judge so you got to check it out. It is truly great. And I like I said I've never been a big fan of hers. I used to live in Maine and the different main is like New Hampshire. New Hampshire is one of the weirdest states in that first of all it's a beautiful state. And but it's weird in that, you know, it's live free or die. But then we're going to tell you what you can have it launch in school. So it's just a weird. Everybody's packing a piece, but then a bunch of people vote for Hillary. It's just the weirdest. You don't see that often? New Hampshire's probably the only state where a guy has a he's got a gun rack because he's a hunter and a fisherman. Maybe he he's he's a professional fisherman. He has like a forty footer in the at the doctor, and he's got a little I'm with her sticker. It's the weirdest, and I think that's why it's an interesting primary state. But getting back to Senator Collins, she just became one of my favorite senators yesterday. And people didn't know what side she was on. And that was so that's what I loved about. It. So we are going to be keeping an eye on that. But we have a lot more to talk about. There's a lot going on right here in Pennsylvania's biggest enlarge largest sanctuary city. We're going to have some quotes from the left, which I can't wait to share with you. Michael Moore was a no show at court in court a couple days ago. I guess his ex wife is trying to sue his brains off or out or I don't know. Something's coming off. Something's coming out. Obviously a lot of money will be coming out of his account. Also around four o'clock, Laura bloomer is an investigative journalist. She's a real investigative journalist. I know that every single time you turn on a news network. You hear promos that say investigative journalism where Brigadier that truth. Bye. Bye. Bye. No, they're not. No, they're not. There was so much truth. Overlook this week. Let me give you a couple of wonderful examples to me one of the biggest stories this week was a Twenty-seven-year-old democrat worker on Capitol Hill political operative on Capitol Hill identifies himself on Lincoln as a democrat. Political. What did he say not a strategist? But something else. Anyway, he definitely he he identifies identifies himself as a democrat. He's worked for Senator Barbara Boxer to other Democrats. And most recently he worked for congresswoman Jackson Lee. Okay. I wanted to set the stage who this guy is. Okay. This is this guy. He was arrested on six counts. This weekend, not this. Well, a couple of days ago someone's trying to call me excuse me. Let me turn my phone. He was arrested two days ago. No three days ago. It wasn't covered. Why was he arrested? Because this democrat took all the personal information of the Republican senators on the judiciary committee. The ones that we were watching question, Dr blase Ford and Cavanaugh the whole week, the the Republicans only, and he docks them, you know, what Doksan is its slang for when you take all the personal restricted documents of someone like where they live where their kids go to school where they Bank what they drive, and you you make it public. So that's what this democrat did to me. That's one of the biggest stories of the entire week think about that think about if I- docks you or if I doc st- mayor Kenney, which I would never do because I don't do that. I don't break the law because my panties are all bunched up. I so I don't wear panties anymore. But I don't break the law. Just because my panties are in Awadh. Like a lot of guys do on the left. So this this millennial twenty seven years old. He was arrested for breaking and entering illegally accessing a computer, releasing secure documents and three or four other things. This was a huge story and this happened Tuesday afternoon. I have the arrest report somewhere. It's in my POP, my pilot preparation I'll share that with you coming up. But I I'm looking at the coverage this week. And that was amazing an amazing story. The other most amazing story to me. There were two stories that were so annoyed by the mainstream media. Dr blase Ford's friend. As she said one of her best friends went on record with the FBI. Under the umbrella of perjury. If she lied and said, not only was I not at that party with Dr fort. I don't know what the heck she's talking about. I've never met Cavanaugh. I wouldn't even know what the guy looked like. Now, don't you think those two stories are big be honest. Even if you voted for Hillary four times under three different names, be honest. Don't you think those are big stories considering the confirmation of a supreme court Justice? You gotta democrat that used to work with congresswoman Jackson Lee. And you know, Sheila jackson-lee, and you know, it was interesting. The other thing that was ignored. What was in the envelope? That Sheila jackson-lee handed to the attorney of blase Ford. No, one touched it. So you have three giant issues. That was worried Noord. And this is why it's not only vindication for the country. It's vindication. For those of us that are on the conservative side, it proves that you just cannot make up some stuff and throw it at somebody and destroy them. Although it's been done before. And they'll try it again. This is the takeaway from the Justice Cavanaugh confirmation. The takeaway is the next time you want to go back to someone's yearbook in one thousand nine hundred eighty two and frame them with their quotes, you're in for a fight because we were not the GOP of old. You know, you could probably done that with Mitt Romney. You could've probably lied about Romney. And he would he would have shriveled up in a cocoon. You can't do that about Trump. You can't do that with Cavanaugh. I knew Kavanagh was the right guy when he said, I don't care what you make up about me. I'm not backing down. But the news media every week. I think there there's no way they can embarrass themselves more and come off more incompetent. But when you don't cover a story that someone in Capitol Hill a democrat leaked. Grassley and all their information, and they did it. So the protesters can protest them personally, they leaked all this information. So the protesters could go by their families or go by their home. Think about that think about the danger and the lack of security, but it was no big deal to the left because they hate Cavanaugh, and they hate Trump. And so does the media. Newsflash the people the voters have so much more power than the.

A lot of people in their sixties still hungry, though, still out by age sixty though most people do have enough success under their belt to feel pretty confident that they can handle whatever. Life throws at them that level of self satisfaction satisfaction, though goes away by the time. You hit ninety you think. Kimmy when your eyes are failing you and your joints aren't working on.

"congresswoman jackson lee" Discussed on C-SPAN Radio

"Assist. Although we are diabetes hotspot, we do not have dialysis units working in full capacity in the Virgin Islands, which means that many virgin islanders are living not in the Virgin Islands to be able to receive dialysis treatment. What does that mean? It means that schools in for the last year or on split sessions because we lost so many schools are children all of the public school children in the Virgin Islands were only at school for four hours a day figuring in tire year, and this year, we still do not have ten schools open. Our children are being left behind even more than they were previously and the students who aren't schools do not have basic needs first week of school. I went and visited on our islands and sought children's sitting on milk. Crates children's sitting on desk teachers would folding chairs because they did not have chairs did not have desk to be able to teach the students libraries with no books libraries with no shelves. No supplies because the schools had to be cleared. Everything was lost. And so we're asking that this administration stop playing games with the money. Stop acting as if you are still a Wall Street banker and release the funds that congress appropriated for the people of Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. So that we can begin rebuilding. So that we can create an environment in which are seniors can feel safe, and which are killed children can thrive, and I wanna thank you leader Pelosi to my colleagues who had visited who recommended this funding and even those on the other side of the aisle who has sent letters to secretary munition to HUD to say what you were doing was not the intent of congress, and you need to get that money down there and move quickly. So I wanna thank you for that. Virgin Islands delegate. Stacey Plaskitt C span radio. WCBS PFM Washington. Thank you very much from Plaskitt an athlete. One of our purposes is to remove the obstacles of participation of individuals having access to the money, whether it's for housing or whatever. And again, the intent of congress was that this would be facilitated, but that I'm pleased to a congresswoman Sheila jackson-lee of Texas, Houston, Texas when she came on air code L at the end of the last session. She. She brought her fresh eyes from having experienced not only Houston receiving recipients from Katrina experiencing their own natural disasters of recent. And so as a member as I mentioned before the homeland security committee judiciary committee. Several hats, including a Representative of people who have suffered through a natural disaster. And has that experience to share with us? Leader Pelosi good morning, and thank you. So very much for convening us together to be able to in the midst of the time that we're in onto reemphasize, the giant responsibility that the federal government has I wanna thank congressman. Let's guys for her leadership and insight congresswoman plans get for pursuing an persisting on the relief for those in the Virgin Islands. As we stand here today. The backdrop of media reports our friends and neighbors in the southeast region on not only being plummeted, but they are an plummeted. They are being rescued. They are desperate. They're calling out for relief. And if there ever is a time for the federal government to stand for her people, it is during times of war and disaster. And so it saddens me today to come and to acknowledge that the president ministration is more than insensitive. It is incompetent. Now just a year ago. My constituents instill today, we're feeling that. There was no hope as I left my district just a few days ago. There were people living from the impact of hurricane Harvey in shells of homes. So we are experiencing and realize the tragedy that is always ongoing. It never ends a couple of days or a couple of months after the disastrous hurricane comes trillions of gallons of water. And I think that is the failure of this administration to recognize what rescue and recovery really is. My saddened perspective was enhanced with leader Pelosi's Cordell, not because of the initiative and the resilience of the people in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. But it was because we recognize that they wondered how we discovered that. They were American citizens just last year. And the administration never detailed or sent to the American people that they were going to help Americans, and it maize doesn't saddened us during this whole year. The people's eyes were open they were still asking are you going to the country of Puerto Rico the country of the Virgin Islands? An administration never attempted to embrace other people work with congress on to move the resources as quickly as possible. So what we had was disastrous recovery for those impacted by disasters. The hit of Irma and Maria to both of the territories was an amazing, and how should say an ending disaster. The infrastructure in both of the territories was not the fault of the territories. It was a lack of reckoning of the existence of people who are members of the United States family. So what did we do? We passed a tax scam. That took trillions will take trillions of dollars out of the budget the administration propose to take money out of FEMA and give it to ice. There is no emergency with ice. Under homeland security, we run or oversee FEMA and FEMA not only needed a structural boost. But it needed the funding a widget it needs now. And though, I've heard FEMA representatives be the good soldiers and say, we have all the money we need. We don't know what hurricane Florence is going to render to that region. And yet Puerto Rico is suffering and the Virgin Islands is suffering. So I joined with congresswoman Velazquez in her nine eleven commission style Bill. I also join and ask my colleagues to join us in pushing the majority for major hearings on the Senate and house side in the respective jurisdiction committees which would include homeland security to ask the question. What happened to the disaster relief that we should have given I also asked and I stand with my sister's release the money released the Medicaid money release, the community block grant monies release the money. At means, Texas, but that means Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. The administration is holding up those dollars that for some jurisdictions. It's about them getting a house for others. It's life and death in getting a roof and getting the infrastructure that is needed release the money. And I would also say that one of the things that we have discovered through my experience with hurricanes from read it to Katrina, and then I own hurricanes that have hit directly is that FEMA needs a reform. I intend to introduce legislation that would have a rescue. So that these immediate disasters is a team that understands how to rescue and then a team that understands recovery because when we went into the mountain areas in Puerto Rico. When we went to the areas in Puerto Rico. We saw we just saw rape people. They will just pulling up they they were just doing things on their own. They will just brought tears enjoys your joy and tears because they were just showing us what they were doing. They were creating jobs, but yet we could see a whole list of devastated cars that had never been removed and schools that have never been repaired. So I believe that if we if the administration, it would not be the scene that has been played over and over again with the leadership of Puerto Rico, and the president sitting there and diminishing disaster and suggesting that it was a no greater disaster. That was a disaster, Katrina, and it was a disaster in more ways than one and suggesting that this was not no one has the right to proclaim any disaster less than the other. Unless you have the pain of the people that are there. And so I wanna to say this as I close one. We need the money. We must have the money. We cannot have the administration fooling around with a single entity. That is the face of the federal government's response to disaster. And that is the Federal Emergency Management agency. That's what people think I have people today calling me and say can FEMA helped me today. This is air she's radio programming from Friday doubled UCSB from west second. I think to the president is not a sense of empathy to come and throw a paper towel roll two. Desperate people. And lastly. If one person died. Someone is crying. The numbers that died in my state some were crying. And so the fact that we have been affirmed, and reaffirmed that three thousand plus died, and as I've seen congressman Velazquez cry because people in Puerto Rico or committing suicide. Then I think what we're here today is to give solutions to play for the money, and to demand that the administration stand up to its responsibilities realizing that the greatest job that they have been the American people are in war or the American people are in disaster. Administration needs to do its job. Sheila jackson-lee of Texas on Capitol Hill earlier today, we're standing by to take you live to the Heritage Foundation for discussion about NATO with that organization's secretary general until then more of this morning's news conference with House Democrats. Here's Nancy Pelosi. Thank you, very much congresswoman Jackson Lee congresswoman of Alaska is congresswoman Plaskitt as you can see. From the C. Three leaders are. Breath is well documented this great knowledge and experience that went behind are going on that trip and continues as we try to expedite as we try to expedite the the assistance of there were many other members on the KC, but we're not in session today. So we have. Representatives of the different aspects of this. And they just say this. I was an early member of new member of congress. We had the earthquake. Loma Prieta earthquake in Tampa. You learn right off the bat. They only thing that really matters in terms of people and their relationship to the public sector is if you are there in their time of need and a time of need is beyond their control. It's not need of something incremental. It's drastic need and for there to be any doubt in anyone's mind in the time of these very predictable natural disasters. Is that we have to be there in a timely fashion. Time is the most valuable commodity and the money that goes with it, the sooner the money, the the better it is. Now, we expect that this is an opportunity that in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. There could be a new agreed not restore to where it was before. The law says you have to restore it to the standard where it was before. That's not good enough. We have to leapfrog over that. Because that did not serve us. Well, well, we saw was interested in having renewable energy sources. So that we can help to slow down to lessen the heat that slows down that accelerates the pace of these hurricanes. They're all kinds of opportunities here. But first and foremost, we have to be there to meet the needs of people, whether it's community development block grants or whether it's removing obstacles of participation to excess housing money. Whether it's a thinking about how we. We build the economy by thinking new terms about what that bridge would look like if it is really about the future the list goes on and on. It's kinda swung Plaskitt said these are, and they are veterans. Children. For us to hopefully, not thinking different way about NGOs Astra one place in a disaster. Another let's remove all doubt. And and get this done. But we are determined as you can tell by the determination and the knowledge and the vision that our colleagues have on this subject. Unfortunately, we're coming to you again planning this well in advance, but not knowing that Florence would be taking its toll at this time. And so again, our thoughts prayers and actions have to be to have that immediate rescue emergency recovery. And then go on to to what comes next after that any questions on this subject versus more public servants in natural disasters. Quaking in California. Blazquez little bit yesterday. You think the idea has they probably weapon approve a supplemental spending Bill with the difference here. Maybe how they Carolina south on how they'd rush Texas last year is different. Because what we go in the US Virgin Islands. We're dealing with delegates to congress not to full voting numbers here. And that's part of the problem and that they will react differently. And that will make it easier. Bruce, something for my Carolina, South Carolina versus what was done last year. I certainly hope not I'm going to defer to my colleagues to respond to that. But I will say this. This is about the American people wherever they are..
