Florida Rep. Greg Steube Pulls out Weapons During House Discussion

"Greg steube was actually explaining to fellow Democrats what is going to happen if they pass this bill and he shows guns that the Democrat led bill would ban, including a very simple handgun, and just listen to how this unfolds. Let's just say the infamous representative Sheila Jackson Lee. She doesn't get as much coverage as she used to. Sheila Jackson Lee used to get a ton of coverage. And now you just got so many clowns over there. You got AOC, you got bush, you got Cory bush. You got ayanna Pressley, Rashida Tlaib. She just kind of blends in now. She doesn't stand out as much as she used to. Play cut 74. This is a XL 6 hour P 360 five. Comes with a 15 round magazine. Here's a 7 round magazine, which would be less than what would be lawful under this bill if this bill we're going to come all. It doesn't fit. So this gun would be banned. It's not loaded. I'm at my house. I can do whatever I want with my guns. Democrats want to control your guns at all times. So he shows the gun to the he shows up the gun with good. Firearm control, by the way. And he has it right up to the camera. Good form, and proper form I should say. And representative Sheila Jackson Lee, they really are so concerned about gun control. She says, I hope that gun isn't loaded. And he's like, I put my house. I can do whatever I want with my guns. His proper response would be like, of course it's loaded. Are you kidding me? This is not just here to show you. They really do believe in gun control. Now the great response from rep stube came on Twitter. Where Democrats are losing their mind that representative stube would even motion that he's showing a gun. So Eric swalwell said with a screen grab of representative stew base said, this is who Republicans are. Kids are being buried and they're bragging about how many guns they own during our gun safety hearing. They are not serious. They are a danger to our kids. We're representative Greg steube, responded and said, if you hate the Second Amendment, move to China, I hear you know some people there. Of course, a slight towards Eric swalwell's lover, fang fang. The Chinese spy, where Eric swalwell was very close to fang fang, and never got held accountable to that.

Who Is Ketanji Brown Jackson? A Closer Look at Biden's SCOTUS Nominee

"Alex from Ohio says Charlie, can you explain or elaborate on Joe Biden's Supreme Court pick? So in the midst of all this, as Ukraine is being invaded and we've spent a considerable amount of warranted time on that, by the way, there's a lot happening in our own country that we can not and should not lose sight of. So Joe Biden in the midst of all this suspiciously decides that just announce his Supreme Court pick while all this is happening. And so it is a woman in black woman as he promised by the name of catan G Brown, Jackson. And so far, there are many people that are very happy about this. On the left, the Fox News dot com article says katangi Brown Jackson's nomination to the Supreme Court delights progressives. She was a public defender, and we're diving into her background. She's described as a rather progressive individual. We don't have a lot of evidence to show that yet, I'm sure it's there, but the media is not really diving into her, but I guarantee you in the next coming days and weeks, there will be oppo dump after oppo dump of everything that she has said before. But here's a couple right here. In 2019, she used the Russian collusion hoax as an excuse to justify mandating that former White House counsel Don McCann testify before the House judiciary committee. More than two decades ago, Breyer apprenticed that Breyer pendas penned an amicus brief for the national abortion rights league, Nero, and other organizations that killed babies in the womb. In support of a Democrat backed law that prevented pro life protesters from congregating outside abortion facilities. Continues, Cory bush, who is a radical anti American leftist from Missouri, says this quote 233 years. That's how long we have waited to have a black woman nominated the Supreme Court. Judge katangi Brown, Jackson is a form of public defender with a record of standing up for justice. There are no words to describe how my soul is moved by witnessing her nomination. Now let's just stop here. First of all, what is a woman? I want to ask Cory bush, what is a woman? Why does it matter? I thought womanhood is complete, according to Cory book, men can become pregnant. The same people that are celebrating Brown Jackson coming to the Supreme Court should remind themselves that clarence Thomas is also on the Supreme Court, one of only two black men if I remember correctly, two black men ever to serve on the United States Supreme Court yet it's complete silence from the left on that interesting.

"Danny Fisher. The system democracy now I mean me Goodman with Juan Gonzalez. The Biden administration's issued a new two month moratorium on evictions covering much of the country after facing massive public outcry from progressive lawmakers led by Congress member Cory bush. The new CDC moratorium will cover areas of the United States where they're substantial or high spread of the coronavirus. A nationwide moratorium and evictions expired Saturday after democratic lawmakers failed to pass a bill to protect millions of people could be forced from their homes on Friday night democratic Congress member Cory Bush who was once on housed herself began camping out with others on the steps of the capitol in protest staying until Tuesday's announcement. In a tweet Bush wrote on Friday night it came to the capitol with my chair. I refused to accept Congress could leave for vacation while 11 million people faced eviction for 5 days we've been out here demanding that our government acts to save lives today our movement moved mountains. During an interview on CNN Bush responded to the temporary moratorium extension. I'm elated and I'm overwhelmed. You know because just the thought that so many people right now millions of people you know will not be forced out on the streets. Meanwhile democratic Congress member Rashida Tlaib is calling on House Democrats to return recent contributions from real estate tycoon George Marcus who recently donated $1 million to the House majority pack just weeks before democratic lawmakers failed to extend the eviction moratorium. For more we're joined by Branco Marcia teach. Staff writer Jacob and magazine where his latest species headline the Democrats eviction moratorium failure is unforgivable. You wrote the piece before the announcement Tuesday. In a minute we'll talk to you about the infrastructure deal but to significant. Of the now eviction moratorium that's more targeted. But also the popular outcry led by Cori Bush once in housed herself. Yeah I think it's a really important lesson. Obviously there's a lot of pressure being put on The White House from Congress people and the like Pelosi and Maxine waters apparently were calling The White House over the weekend basically saying hey you need to do something about this. So there is an element of some of that kind of more congenial. Work going behind the scenes. But I think it's really important also that the failure to actually do anything about the eviction moratorium which the deadline was known about for a month at the release the Supreme Court basically said it would strike it down at Dana June. The failure to do anything about that cause such a big outcry and really fierce criticism among progressives and just ordinary people. That I think that was also the other thing that helped push The White House to ultimately despite saying we don't have the power to do anything and you know we don't want to risk a broader Supreme Court strike down by us showing another moratorium order. It pushes to do it. But I think that's a really important lesson. We saw it also with the administration's walk back on the refugee numbers. That announcement when Biden said he was going to keep the refugee numbers basically a trumps level incredibly low level the outcry forced into backtrack. So I think the lesson here is people need to be willing to criticize this administration. People want the administration to succeed but sort of trim them with kid gloves is not necessarily going to be the best way to get these kinds of progressive and just outcomes and policy. But Bronco I wanted to ask you the criticisms about the administration clearly are were needed but I'm wondering there was there were billions of dollars allocated in the previous COVID-19 bills for rental assistance and a large most of this money has not yet been given out by the states New York State has a 160,000 people who have applied for rental assistance and according to The New York Times almost no one has gotten any money from a democratic supposedly liberal state. What's going on with the states of giving out the money that's already been a portion to help tenants? Well look I mean real estate interests are powerful everywhere such as at the national level. It's also at the state and local levels. Perhaps even more so than at the national level. I mean the other thing is that this was really enabled by the way that this rental assistance was designed. It was designed to delegate to the states which you know I mean through history through American history one of the lessons is that when you delegate. Programs to states to design and implement it doesn't necessarily always mean that's going to be a failure or that it's going to be delayed or have problems. But just by nature of the fact that state governments are not always controlled by progressive lawmakers. It does mean that you risk all these different states look how these putting in different rules and different requirements that end up making it a lot harder to people to get the money. And that's basically what happened. The reason people aren't getting it quickly enough people are having trouble with being able to apply for these things being able to fill out whatever they have to fill out. And you compare it to say the PPP. Support that was given to businesses by the. Trump administration that program was designed it was a federal program. There's very minimal bureaucracy it was meant to get money through the door as quickly as possible. And so I think that's a pretty key comparison there where it shows you this idea of well you know if it's business well then money has to go as quickly as possible. And you know what? If some people cheat the system or people who are not worthy of the support in that trying to apply for it then so be it whereas when it comes to renters when it comes to ordinary working people there's more suspicion. And so I think there's. That antiquated mindset there's still a long way to go to overcome it. So I want to ask you Bronco about a key part of president Joe Biden's agenda the bipartisan bill that's the first phase of his infrastructure plan. This week the Senate is working on amendments to the infrastructure investment in jobs act which calls for spending $555 billion in new money over 5 years on the country's roads bridges water systems and broadband and the electric grid. But critics say the bill fails to urgently address the climate emergency. The intercept reports that actually includes $25 billion and potential new subsidies for fossil fuels. The outcome of the bipartisan bill set the stage for debate on Biden's much larger three and a half $1 trillion package which Republicans strongly oppose but would require a simple majority for passage through reconciliation. So you wrote a piece sprinkle march to teach in jacobin magazine headlined Biden's infrastructure deal is terrible progressives in Congress should block it. And you also are the author of the biography of Biden yesterday's man the case against Joe Biden. But can you talk about the infrastructure Bill bills as they stand now?

"Able to be free to exploit the world around us and we feel free to be able to do that because The rest of the web of life is just worth less than our profit motive and that's why for example sixty percent of current human infectious diseases come from pathogens that jump from one species to another And the industrial food system incubates those kinds of diseases now while the jury's out around covert certainly the case that we've seen a vast array abc's is coming from The industrial food system and so h one n one for example in twenty nineteen Was i'm sorry in two thousand nine was one example of a disease that emerged from food system. Which is quite happy. With treating the rest of the web of life as a disposable resorts and also quite happy entreating the working class As a an expandable kind of insulation between the byrne disease and the needs of the the rich and the global north now when you have a kind of setup that's based on the six hundred year process of exploitation and colonial domination. Then you're you're preparing the world for pandemics not just of a virus but also for the consequences of a virus reverberating through societies. That are deeply unequal. And so what. We opened to today's show talking about The the climate disasters that happening around the world. Guess who it is. That's on the front lines of of the climate crisis. It's the same. Communities that are the the forefront who've been predominantly exposed to The kinds of the narratives the the kinds of exposures that render their body. More ready to become susceptible to to covert which brings us to the title. Doctor rupa mario. The title of your book inflamed deep medicine and the anatomy of injustice. Talk about why you called it. Inflamed and the kind of work. You've been doing that. Shows the disparities it that result from the system that we have yes. Thank you for having us. Amy and i'm happy to be speaking to you today. From the occupied territory of who chin you can see the west. Berkeley shell mound. Which are friends are trying to save the oldest inhabited site here in the bay area. So inflammation is the body's appropriate response to damage or the threat of damage and The leading cause of death and illness in industrialized places are all inflammatory disease whether we're talking about cardiovascular disease or cancer alzheimer's disease depression even suicide all of these diseases have inflammation as a part of their as part of their process. And we're learning now that the immune system is being primed for inflammatory disease through Not just genetics. Which is what we've been thinking about for many years. Why do some people get autoimmune disease. Why do some people get inflammatory bowel disease. Why do some people get cancer. But now we're learning that the social structures around us the environmental political structures around us are are tuning the immune system to sound out the full range of inflammation and unfortunately medical education is steeped in the same enlightenment errors. That raj was just speaking of separating humans from the web of life separating civilization from nature these kinds of dichotomies. These false dichotomies errors are a part of medical education today. I'm so while it's helpful that we're talking about structural determinants of health. We're looking at the glaring disparities cova crisis. We don't learn in medicine where these structures came from or how to dismantle them and that is really what deep medicine is if we want to be making an impact on these structures if we want to be making an impact on the health outcomes we have to start working with communities who are already identifying the problems and leading the change. That is a brief summary of what we're doing in this book and if you can talk about the pandemic raj patel providing this kind of autopsy of racial disparities in the country. The profound injustices in the system in a just a few moments. We'll be linking up with Congressman cory bush. Who has been sleeping on the steps of the capital with a number of other people protesting the fact that addiction moratorium was allowed to expire Threatening millions of people in this country this in the midst of a pandemic that is surging in this country as as we approach this The expiration One of the the big ideas that we have in the book is a particularly the the way that Capitalism primes bodies rubel was saying full for sickness And you know this expiration is going to drive more people into despair but we already have the technologies of oppression that again towards sending the working class to dispatch things like payday loans for example. If you take out a payday loan for three hundred dollars you might end up paying Upwards of eight hundred dollars and apr four hundred percent And we know that the stress of needing to repay these loans. is Causing ill health. I mean to the extent that if we were to ban things like payday loans then In the united states the suicide rate would fall by two point one percent and the fatal drug poisoning rate. Drop eight point nine percent now. That kind of ongoing stress. is a just a normal feature of the way that capitalism operates in the united states And this the This this moment of triggering. The the the the laps of the the eviction moratorium is going to drive yet. More people to the abyss but rupa has been working for example in San francisco helping working with physicians and protesting with them around some of the eviction related issues in the issues. Around the on house that dr rubin maria if you can talk about that work for just about thirty seconds and we're going to go to break we're gonna go to congress member cory bush's been sleeping out on the capitol steps for the last few days to protest this victim moratorium expiring and then we're gonna come back to the two of you.

New Mexico is first state to elect all women of color to the House

"There's a historic first last night David, including the election of LGBT Q politicians, Delaware elected the first openly trance state senator in the country, Sarah McBride In Kansas, Stephanie buyers became the first openly transgender person ever elected to the Kansas State House and the first openly trans person of color ever elected to the state Legislature in the US, Cory Bush became the first black woman Elected to Congress from Missouri. Richie Tour is here in New York. He became the nation's first openly gay black congressman. The entire New Mexico House delegation is now made up of women of color. So you know, Tio, some of our colors, points about like, how in a pink Pepsi on Twitter about how could be so close? How could trump be re elected? I mean, Should we be thinking about the country's a little more purple than red and blue? I think so. I think that's a huge takeaway here, and that's certainly what we've been hearing kind of going into the rights and Georgia, for instance, like we talked about the purple in Georgia for for a long time now, But no, I think that you know you you bring up those examples and they're so important and they're so positive because that kind of representation matters and it's so important and should inspire others to get into politics. You know, I, um I hope that that catches fire and we see that more places across the country, but I was just struck. You were listening Those names just how they're not confined to a small set of states. That really was something that's happening more broadly. I think that A lesson from this campaign. The last couple of campaigns is how kind of hard work politics on the part of unknown candidates or underdog candidates can really pay off. We certainly thought that in New York City last cycle with Alexandra Cozzi Cortez winning that surprise victory. I mean, that was kind of thing that lit the fire for so many of the other. Often more progressive candidates to do well in yes State House races in Congress races across the country, So I think that you're right and picking up on the trend here and count me among the hopeful who think that it's going to be the start of a of a longer trend yet.
