It's been a lifelong journey in many ways. understanding appreciating the parallel tracks that the jewish community in the black community have been on if you think about it from a biblical perspective for centuries of slavery in egypt and you think about the four centuries. African americans were enslaved. There are tracks that are parallel and pain. That creates promise an opportunity. The tragedies that became triumphs. it's a story that continues on and for my life For me it seems. It's just personal in that. By some of my first mentors larry freudenberg. Who helped me become a part of his insurance agency. And then it gave me a piece of the pie and taught me not to work for someone but worked for yourself

If Democrats Don't Get H.R. 1 Passed, They're Going to Blame Racist Filibuster Rules They Created

"That they want to vote on. Voting rights bill. If they don't get what they want. They're going to say it's because the racist filibuster rules in place the racist filibuster that was used by Obama and Cory Booker and others. Hardly white supremacy crowd, no doubt about it. Rather than get rid of the filibuster. Alia different idea. Why don't we get rid of the Democrat Party since it's the Democrat Party? That has abused the filibuster in the name of slavery in the name of segregation and the name of Jim Crow. Anti Civil Rights Act of 64 anti Civil Rights Act of 65, the filibuster rule in and of itself. Is a discriminatory It's not racist. The Democrat Party. Throughout its history has been discriminatory and racist, and it's discriminatory and racist as I speak. It just moves around. It slithers around like a snake. Voting rights bill they called Okay. I've spent the better part of this afternoon. Re acquainting myself with the ratification debates. Nine of them in particular. Nine of them in particular. You know, Rhode Island, North Carolina eventually left the constitutional convention. You wear that now. They eventually voted for the Constitution ratified. But they left. And a lot of the delegates left. Some of them were replaced, but nonetheless As I read through this Because I recalled through my other writings and my other books. Virtually every single state ratification debate involved at one point or another. The section of the Constitution. It gives the federal government the power to choose the time and the place in the venue of voting. And there was grave skepticism and concern. That this new federal government that was being created by the state's remember that Would

Positively impacting the lives of black people. So before planned. Parenthood i worked in government have done housing policy. I've done criminal justice work at the justice department and at the w. c. p. legal defense fund and i came to planned parenthood to work in health equity Its core to planned. Parenthood's mission and Connects with me in a very real way as a black woman. As a black mother ensuring an expanding access to sexual reproductive healthcare particularly for black women is incredibly important to me. So that's why i'm here carmen. How 'bout you yes indeed. Where my journey to health equity. In what i do now it national birth equity collaborative has really come from genuine interest in learning more about my own my own story my own freedom like on my healing journey. I find that they're these different. Ill these different points aware. I become closer within an entire tribe in learned that there are folks all over the country in world who are interested in what i'm also interested in so for example i was on my healing journey from From sexual assault in abuse. And do that do they experience. I started to learn about public. Health started to learn that there are entire organizations that focused on reproductive justice in reproductive freedom on medicare organization said. Do this work on a policy level. And so as i assumed in my own healing in in my own life journey i find that there are just hundreds of thousands of other black women who are also seeking their own freedom on through the work into activism and advocacy are. That's how i found myself from doing burke justice in breath equity work. Today i appreciate you boast just much for what you do for carrying so much about black women's health care and we're gonna dive into it a little bit more one. The first things that i want to talk about is the black maternal health. Mama this act. I just love that name. It was re introduced into congress by representatives.

We can start basile most definitely so excited. She's like oh. I'm no out so when you are love talking about it. Because it's been years in the making thinking of the leadership over decades of people lifting the blanton health crisis and now we're at this point where we have a mommy bus act so it was first introduced with at least the black maternal health caucus was created in two thousand nineteen. And that's when the pressure really started but The caucuses self is exciting. Because it's a one of the largest asks that is like now moving through the federal legislative process. And that just speaks so much to how this issue connects with individuals. We all viscerally know how important it is to care for. Mob take care for our own mothers and so when these stories are told on these devastating tour stories of Light preventable death and long term chronic conditions for black mamas i. I'm pleased that is that is connected with so many legislators. But i'm right now as a package of twelve bills that hit on all different kinds of things. It's just really nice to hear. The breath of policy changed as within the mommy bus. But it is its purpose is to filling gaps in existing legislation to address every dimension of the black. Maternal health. Crisis

While All Eyes Were On the Covid Relief Bill House Passed Two Other Important Bills

"Congress has been working on plenty of other legislation as well senior video producer. Hannah gaber talked with congress reporter savannah berman to catch us up savannah. You've been on the hill all week and it's pretty much been all is on the covid relief package for very good reason. But that's well on. Its way to becoming law. The democrats are looking good for getting. It passed before the march fourteenth deadline. That they're worried about well. We were all looking at the covid relief. Bill what else did we miss the senate. This week has largely been focused on president. Joe biden one point nine trillion dollar stimulus bill but the house passed two other bills. That people should know about those being the house passing the for the people act which would provide sweeping reforms to protect voter rights and then they also passed. The george floyd justice and policing acts but should usher in a series of police reform measures in the wake of national uprising. Saw summer and protest against police brutality and we saw a lot of support for police reform over the summer and this is also not the first time that the democrats have passed this bill. Isn't that right. Yeah so the. George floyd in policing act was actually passed last year. But senate minority leader mitch mcconnell. Who was the majority leader at the time. Didn't bring it to the floor. And since then we have actually seen support for. Police increased quite a bit in recent months so now that the democrats have a majority in the senate. It's a very slim one. Literally one person vice president khama harris there. Are they gonna be able to get this. Bill passed because this is not a reconciliation bill. They're going to need a two thirds majority for this to become law or at least they're going to need sixty votes to get passed a filibuster rate so are any republicans going to get on board. Yes they would need to have ten republicans. Join all fifty democrats in order for this to pass. But republicans have specifically taking issue with the qualified immunity provisions and the qualified immunity provision is a legal doctrine that showed police officers from being held personally liable in civil court. So republicans are arguing. That people will sue police officers. Try to take legal action against them if they simply disagree with being arrested or something else so. Republicans are arguing. That police officers will no longer be protected and that that is unfair for first responders law enforcement officials but how democrats feel about taking that provision out of the amenable to that kind of a compromise. You know i don't think so. There might be some movement with some of the moderates on in the senate side but progressives like cory booker who has really been the point person for democrats when it comes to policing hasn't been hasn't been wanting to budge on this. So i don't think democrats would be willing to take it out of the bill and for those of us who just absolutely love political fine print. There was also a campaign finance reform. Bill passed in the house this week was there not that is correct so the house also passed the four of the people act. And that's going to look at expanding. The voting poll and seeking to increase. Voter turnout by expanding. Early voting lessening identification requirements allowing same day registration and. It's also going to fight against gerrymandering. Boy this sounds like it is in direct contrast with a case that we are seeing in front of the supreme court this very week. So what do you think is the campaign finance and voter reform. Bill gonna make it through the senate. It faces a lot of the same issues. In the with democrats needing ten senate republicans joining them to break. Gop filibuster and for this act a lot of senate. Republicans dislike it and have actually called terrible. Senate majority senate minority leader mitch. Mcconnell has taken a particular dislike to it and one aspects that they dislike is that it will allow states to establish electronic voter registrations a permit voters to actually register on election day and republicans. Say that it's gonna make verification harder and may lead to an increase voter fraud

Garland confirmation is a stage for 4 of GOP's 2024 hopefuls

"App. Federal Judge Merrick Garland is president Biden's nominee to become attorney general. He testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee today. The hearing lasted most of the day We begin with committee chair Dick Durbin of Illinois. This hearing will come to order today. The Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing on the nomination of Judge Merrick Garland to be the 86th attorney general of the United States. Judge Garland I wanna welcome you and your family. I want to welcome you back to the Senate Judiciary Committee. I know this return trip. It's been a long time and planning on you're here. Finally, this will be the Judiciary Committee's first hearing of the 117th Congress. Before I turned to my opening remarks. I'd like to just take a few minutes to make some Acknowledgments. I want to welcome my friend, Senator Chuck Grassley as the committee's ranking member. When I first came on the Senate Judiciary Committee 24 years ago, I was the ranking member on subcommittee with you, and we dealt with the issue of bankruptcy. Now Illinois and Iowa sit next to each other. And so did Urban Grassley. We have our differences. But Senator Grassley and I have worked together on important legislation over the years, most recently on criminal justice and sensing reform. I look forward to continuing that work in this Congress. I want to recognize the outgoing chair and ranking member Senator Lindsey Graham, who will join us remotely this morning, and Senator Dianne Feinstein. Senator Graham, as is true of Senator Grassley. Well, we don't always agree, has always been a welcome partner on many issues. Including one of the most challenging issues, immigration, Senator Feinstein. I want to come in for leading the committee Democrats with Grace and resolved over the past four years. I know she will continue to be an important voice on this committee on a host of issues, including in her new capacity as the chair of the Human Rights and Laws subcommittee, which I was proud to charity and past Congresses. I also want to welcome our new committee members who either be here in person. I see one in person and one probably remote senators Padilla And also on the Democratic side, Senator Cotton on the Republican side. I look forward to working with each of you. There's some historic first in the Judiciary Committee this year, Senator Padilla, our new senator from California, will be chairing the subcommittee on immigration, citizenship. Border safety. I'm honored that he's the first Latino senator to chair that subcommittee, and we look forward to his leadership. Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey will chair the subcommittee on criminal justice and counter terrorism. He's the first Black senator to chair a judiciary subcommittee. And we could not imagine a better choice at the helm of this particular subcommittee to all of our other members who are returning to serve on the committee. Welcome back. I want to thank all the committee members for agreeing to hold this committee hearing and vote on Judge Garland's nomination. It is a great honor to serve on this committee. The Senate established the Judiciary Committee by resolution on December 10th 18 16, making it among the very first standing committees of the Senate. This committee has seen many consequential debates and approved many important nominations and landmark legislation in the committee's history. There has only been one prior Illinois senator to serve his chair Judge Garland Lyman. Trumbull, who led the committee from 18 61 to 18 72, and during his term of service was a Democrat, a Republican, a radical Republican and a Democrat. Again. He was the most bipartisan senator, you could imagine His tenure was also distinguished by passage. Of historic legislation, the 13th 14th and 15th amendments to the Constitution. The Freedman's bureau acts of 18 65 and 18 66 Civil Rights Act of 18 66. The last of these was introduced by Trumbull ultimately became the nation's first civil rights law. As chair, Trumbull saw a nation torn apart by original sin slavery and widespread violence and injustice that continued even after the 13th amendments. Passage is African Americans throughout the nation face race. System. Our nation is still dealing with the consequences of these injustices. People of color face systemic racism, and we're still working to rid this nation of the horrific legacy of slavery and Jim Crow. This committee could make a difference. We have the jurisdiction and the opportunity to do it through legislation, oversight and nominations, including this nomination of Merrick Garland to service our nation's next attorney general. There have been few moments in history where the role of attorney general and the occupant of That post It mattered more Judge Garland should you be confirmed, and I have every confidence you will be. You'll oversee a Justice Department at an existential moment. After four tumultuous years of intrigue, controversy and brute political force, the future of the department is clearly in the hands of the next attorney general Under attorney general Sessions and successor Bill Bar. The Justice Department literally became an arm of the White House committed to advancing the interest. The President Trump his family and his political allies. It came as little surprise then that the U. S Department of Justice became the Trump Department of Justice General Bar stated clearly that he believed the attorney general was the president's lawyer, not the nations. And what were the results too many in the department's senior roles cast aside the rules law trump appointees in the apartment sidelined career public servants from Lyon attorneys, two FBI agents Limited their roles disregarded their nonpartisan input override, overriding their professional judgment and falsely accusing them of being members of the

The Lucas Bros, Using Humor 'To Shake Folk Woke'

"Kenny and Keith Lucas are stand up comedians and identical twins. People don't have to react when I see twins. No. Okay, they go crazy like we were in the supermarket looking for some Jell O. Yeah. And we're just about to pick it out. And then some dude came out of nowhere. It was like, you know, you guys have a stick of Doublemint gum. That's from their 2017. Netflix special Lucas brothers were having a moment right now they're writing and starring in a remake of Revenge of the Nerds, But they also wrote the story for the new movie Judas and the Black Messiah. The film premieres today in theaters and on HBO. Max NPR's Elizabeth Blair has this profile. The Lucas brothers are best known for a kind of stoner humor. And here's a rule of thumb You should never do. Shrooms wouldn't do Who looks like you, man. I'm telling you. But underneath the jokes, there's a serious side that draws heavily on their childhood in the housing projects of Newark, New Jersey, called the Garden spires is you always, you know, broken elevators infested with rats and rotten Drug dealing violence everywhere, But you know, there's a community that is people that there's families is my family When they were six years old there, Dad went to prison. My father actually is out of prison. He's not in prison anymore, and it sucks that he's out. I wish he was still there. Oh, yeah. I wanted to go back because all he wants to do is father's sight. Don't like do we pay rent? Now it's over. The Lucas Brothers connection to Newark got the attention of New Jersey Senator Cory Booker in 1999, then a Newark City councilman, Booker went on a hunger strike in front of the Garden spires. He also served as the city's mayor. Here's Booker talking to the Lucas brothers on his instagram. I love your insightful, hard hitting humor and the sort of the Eddie Murphy and S O. My great heroes Coming up, you know, were uncompromising how they used humor to shake folks woke like book arm. Keith and Kenny Lucas went to law school and why you and Duke, But unlike Booker, they dropped out. It was weird Tonto Study law and and kind of be poor and black because it's like, Oh, I see what The consequences of policy and law are like on a daily basis, and especially when it in relation to African Americans and the notion of criminality and how it's projected onto blacks and I see that process. I found myself sort of disengaged very early. I always said, you know what I want to do something that has a direct impact on people. From an emotional standpoint, Judas and the Black Messiah is very emotional. Lucas brothers were in college when they first learned about Fred Hampton, the charismatic leader of the Illinois Black Panther Party in the 19 sixties in the movie he's played by Daniel Cholula, Mother Liberating You can't Murder Liberation is another revolutionary, but you can't murder a revolution for murder Freedom fighter, but you get amount of freedom. He's the Black Messiah. Judas is William O'Neal, an African American who was arrested for interstate car theft and Impersonating a federal officer in the movie. We see how the FBI recruited O'Neill to avoid jail time and earn some money. He was instructed to infiltrate the Black Panther Party. And provide the FBI with information about Hampton O'Neill is played by like Keith Stanfield Target You Like some good information, some nobody else No. Is it some kind of bonuses? I'm I'm counting on it. Bill O'Neill became so much of a Panther insider. He was put in charge of security. He provided the FBI with a floor plan of Hampton's apartment in 1969. The Chicago police raided the apartment and killed two Black Panther leaders, including Hampton for the Lucas Brothers. It was essential to tell the story of how the FBI recruited informants in the black community. I think it's important to see just how insidious The system has been in turning young African Americans against one another. Now they Essentially used poor black people against poor black people to execute their goals of minimizing the threat of black messiah is like we just felt it was important to see both sides of the coin. Whether it's a historical drama or its stand up comedy for the Lucas Brothers. It all comes from the same source in a big thing about our act is that we we always try to ground it and stuff that we've gone through, and it's always been Important for us to talk about these systemic issues and a variety of ways. Now they're writing and will star in Seth McFarland reimagining of 1980 four's Revenge of the Nerds Practice a bunch after school. They called US nerds. So one cool. The Lucas brothers promise that their movie will be almost nothing like the original because times have changed. It's like the juxtaposition of being a bully and a nerd is so different from what it was like in the eighties, where you had this one, a stark dichotomy between what it was bullying what it was to be a nerd. Now that's been fused together, and I think That's why the time is right to make a story about that. The Lucas brothers say it's hard to watch the original revenge of the nerds. Even though the movie was a childhood staple. They're excited to give it an update and to make it personal. Elizabeth Blair. NPR news

What is Senator Cory Booker's Super Power?

"What's your superpower because you have been a sort of superstar at life for as long as i've been aware of the name cory booker which was before you were mayor before you ran for mayor. I was hearing about this guy cory booker. who's coming and he's big and he's on point with everything. And what are you doing. i. I don't know what we're hearing it'll be before. I was mayor than in the time of public enemy. And you don't believe the height. Look i was the superpower that was evidenced for me growing up which was not exaggerating. I think it's actually. A superpower under underrated is kindness. Like i just. I just watched two parents who were really good people and would see people that folks walk past all the time. I one of my favorite quotes by humorous gave. Barry has this goes someone who nice to you but not nice to the waiter is not a nice person but you and i both know 'cause i know you have this kindness and you as well that when you are kind of people. Incredible things happen that you don't realize your favorite stories and i'll tell you the quicker version but you go into school at stanford i'd five back and forth across the country. I still remember getting on this plane as a stanford student and being is torturous. When you're like six foot three football player tight end just like coach. Was you know always like my knees. We're going to be banged up on this plane. I have two seats open next to the rest of the plane is full and just before the door closes. This woman walks in with a screaming baby and a little boy and everybody on that plane. Those where they're sitting because the only three bodies two seats. And i think that we all don't realize we have a choice that we make every moment of our lives which is to accept things as they are or take responsibility for changing and so something evolved thought for teenage college student. That point hit which was. This is either going to be the worst flight in my life where i can try to make the best so i just leaned in and started talking to her in the cry baby in soon as i got into my own drama. I realize. Oh my gosh. This woman has a crying baby. The whole plane is looking at her like she's evil as she did something outside and told her baby to cry. Purposefully right and and so we just having a good time. I still remember the movie. Think about this. How purposeful this moment for me. That i remember that movie was glory with denzel washington. And she's like. I haven't seen the movie and so long and i'm like watch this movie your son and i we're gonna play games. We played hangman. Killed them with all my best. Dad jokes that. I had even back then killed them and hangman mad. And by the time we landed. It was the quickest flight. I ever had cross country. You said we keep in touch. We exchange addresses back then no email and didn't and five ten fifteen years later. I'm running for mayor of the city of newark. And i'm getting like thumped and on one of my toughest ones frustrating days. I get this letter in the mail saying to me. You may not remember me but But i you were on this flight first time. I flew with my kids telling me what the kindness then meant to her and then she tells me by the way we. My family owns a big factory in newark and we have tons of employees. She ended up becoming a big part of my campaign. That kid that i tortured with my jokes became one of our best volunteers or per workers. Excuse me to take. Their churches introduced me. It was just an amazing full circle. Kindness is energy stanford. Professor actually studies this that you just doing one kind act witnessed by someone. It will affect people three degrees of separation for you. it is created a way to measuring it. it's a virtuous thing and so my life you know. I just think that that's is a superpower that we under related just a kind word to somebody at the right time can make a difference that you don't even realize so. I don't know if i don't have any superpowers. I'm really far more ordinary than the hype as you just said but i've just tried to go out of my way for me. It's it's a matter of my faith which is of radical love trying to do for people and you have parents like you. And i probably had two black guys who had parents would not let me forget of the struggle parents that were involved in the civil rights movement. That my i. I was raised up thinking like i didn't the privileges that i enjoy. We're not earned. They were paid for as my grandparents. Would by the blood sweat and tears of your ancest-. I definitely grew up thinking i stand on the shoulders of those who came before me. I have a responsibility to the people who march to died protested. Who were enslaved. There i remember being in college and thinking you know i was why and i didn't feel that responsibility. The past i mean cool to like pena. Cia but i can't. I have a responsibility. People came before me. I wouldn't be here without them. So i have to do something. And perhaps my think my journey in media has been something of being helpful black people in some way but you know that sense of responsibility that you talk about. I definitely felt and you have that has powered your life. It is the my faith earlier. But that is in trenton. Integral part of what motivated my life decisions. And very you know i. I'm here because a group of people fought for my housing rights. Like i grew up in the town. I grew up in harrington park. There was a group of activists when my parents were getting denied real estate agents were lying to them and telling this house is sold.

John Gorman Discusses the Use of Opportunity Zones to Address Social Determinants

"To the healthcare policy podcast on the host. David. Intra Cosso. During this podcast saw discussed efforts to address social determinants of health with John Gorman chairman of the nightingale partners and founder and former Executive Chairman of Gorman Health Group. John Welcome to the program. Thanks David. Great to be here. especially with another native DC guy here most welcome John's by is, of course, posted on the podcast website. Briefly on background, the ongoing covid nineteen pandemic has exposed. The country's failed to adequately address the social determinants of health. Generally defining health access and quality education, economic circumstances, food security, social conditions, and environmental factors. It is estimated that where people live work and socialize determines as much as sixty percent of their health status. Whereas formal medical care accounts for just ten percent. For example concerning. Circumstances forty years of wage stagnation among lower income earners has left forty five percent of working age Americans. With either no health care insurance for insurance without a pocket expenses so high. They avoid sinking care went for example, they developed covid nineteen related symptoms. Healthcare policy makers have slowly begun to take an interest in addressing sto ages as a way to improve health delivery by increasing increasing appropriate utilization and reducing costs. For example, Medicare, advantage plans which enroll more than one third of all Medicare beneficiaries have recently been given regulatory authority to offer Ma benificiary supplemental benefits beyond medical care such as mail deliveries, home modifications, and Personal Care Services. With beginning, discuss, addressing, social determine, specifically use of what are termed opportunities zones. Again. John Gorman. So Jon with that as background. Louis. Begin by asking if you could provide a brief overview of nightingale. Sure David Nangle partners is one of these weird opportunities zone funds that came out of trump's big tax giveaway bill It was actually Cory Booker's program that was designed to encourage investment in real estate and disadvantaged communities and I was sitting on my ass retired last spring and got a notification that the irs had just completely revamped the rags to allow opportunities own capital to be used not just for real estate investment. But also for leases one portly for working capital or for meeting the business requirements of a new company inside one of the nine thousand roughly nine thousand opportunities zones around the country and those opportunities owns David are all. Severely, economically disadvantaged and more importantly medically underserved, and because the irs allowed now opportunities own capital to be used for working capital for meeting business requirements. That's what opened the door to allow us to use opportunities on Capitol to make large scale investments in social determinants of health intervention. So nightingale partners with insurers with health systems with large medical groups to finance design launch, and where necessary execute on our goals to improve. The quality of care for vulnerable populations. In this country, a lot of people like to say and I love it that we packed a Republican billionaire tax shelter in order to improve care for black drought people on that gets me up every morning. Sir Thank you. So this as you noted, this was a provision in the December seventeen tax bill. Specifically page one, hundred, and thirty. This was picked up this previous legislation as you noted, that as you mentioned senator from New Jersey Cory Booker but also the South Carolina African American Republican, the only one Tim Scott. So this is picked up in the tax bill previous legislation and you mentioned the nine thousand. So these are census tracts that meet this low income community criteria wrote and then explain to me. Governors than have to select a discrete number. That could benefit from this. Tax Advantage program is that correct doubts correct and there was a little bit of mischief but some of the governors in the designation of some of those areas and there's been, you know some gamesmanship with this story like you know Chris Christie, the former governor of New Jersey is. Used an opportunity zone fund open up frigging LAUNDROMAT. In Asbury, Park with Bruce, springsteen cats not the kind of stuff that we do. I'm not surprised to hear that I guess the former governor is a is obsessed with. Mr Asbury Park and again just so on. Understand better more clearly, this is the tax advantage here is that by investing the capital gains on your investment, you can avoid paying the. Twenty three percent the capital gains tax and that basically. Sure go ahead, go ahead. Well, basically, the way it works is that if you invest money or capital gains in and opportunities zone and you leave it in for at least ten years, not only is the initial investment completely tax free but then all of the proceeds that you make on that investment are completely tax free. So high net worth individuals. And family offices large corporations the generate large amounts of capital gains love this program, and indeed it opened up about six point two trillion dollars in available capital based on the amount of capital gains that we generate in our economy. So of that amount, David Roughly a hundred billion dollars has been invested thus far into opportunities zones off. The roughly eight months programs operate. And again, the idea is the long leave the money and means completely tax free for ten years out of step seven years you pay are you're eighty five percent excuse but I know that that number surprises me would you say this this this one, hundred, billion, his far more than was estimated when the legislation was passed. No I think it's probably rolling out slower than A lot of folks had hoped and as you can imagine, the vast majority of those deals that have been done thus far has been around real estate and real estate redevelopment certainly in the healthcare sector I think we're still the only firm out here. That's a healthcare focus opportunities on fund it. You know it we've been the only ones to my knowledge. So we're you know we're granted here, but we have yet even break a billion, but we're that's our goal.

"Cory Booker asked Barrett to comment on the Trump administration's policy of separating undocumented families at US border. He's wrong to separate a child from their parent. Not for the safety of the child or parent but to send a message. A zoo human being, Do you believe that? That's where all well, Senator I think you're trying to engage me on The administration's order separation policies, Barrett appears to be headed to an easy confirmation.

Lawmakers lay out arguments for and against Trump's Supreme Court nominee

"President Trump's nominee to replace the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg went through today day one of confirmation hearings. News nation Washington correspondent Ashley Kits, supporters and opponents of Judge Amy Cockney Barrett demonstrated outside while inside the Supreme Court nominee appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Democrats like Senator Cory Booker painted a dim picture of how barrettes confirmation could impact the nation. States may write laws. They could subject women who have miscarriages. Two investigations to ensure they didn't have abortions. California Senator Dianne Feinstein focused on Barrett's potential role in striking down the affordable care Act. The case that's before the Supreme Court next month, Judge Barat You've been critical of Chief Justice Roberts for his 54 opinion. Upholding the law. Although Democrats say the Supreme Court seat should not be filled this close to an election, Republican Chairman Lindsey Graham says there's no reason to delay She's been a circuit court judge at the seventh Circuit. Since 2017. She was confirmed to that position. To buy parts with about partisan vote. She has heard hundreds of cases in that capacity. For her part, Judge Barrett promises to be impartial. I believe Americans of all backgrounds deserve an independent Supreme Court. That interprets our constitution and laws as they're written. I believe I conserve my country By playing that role.

"He one of the reasons. He said he couldn't stay in the race. Cory Booker today announced that he he was ending his campaign. So I guess we have to say bye bye bye and in announcing that he was ending his campaign booker said that essentially. He didn't have to go what he needed today. I'm suspending my campaign for president with the same spirit with which began it is. My faith is us take us together as a nation and we share common pain and common problems that can only leaving saw with a common purpose and a sense of common laws. I would say the cory booker occupied this kind of middle space. We referred referred to this on an earlier. PODCAST it was a point that Scott d'etre kind of got at that. We were talking audits. That cory booker seems to have fallen into this weird middle zone of. He's he's not quite the new fresh face on the national scene. That people digest is in this race and he's also not the the sort of super high name recognition type person that Joe Biden nor maybe Bernie Sanders is so you know. In addition to that there are plenty of voters. Have you talked to voters out here. Plenty like him. I went to one of his events. I talked to a woman who was moved. Took tears by him. You had some people that loved him and the rest of voters seem to say like he's he's fine. He's Nice but you didn't have widespread enthusiasm and that's what you need. which is interesting because he is somebody who almost is synonymous with enthusiasm? He brings so much energy all the time in his message which was very much all about positively absolutely. I think one of the questions that we had around cory booker is in this moment. Where the biggest thing that I hear from Democratic voters is the fact that they want to nominate a candidate who can defeat Donald trump in November? Some people raise questions me when I asked him about cory booker they say like him. They love his personality. They love his energy but they weren't sure if he had the formula of candidate who could win and they could see up on that debate stage so In the last couple of days we have gotten some new polling rolling out of Iowa. That sort of shows how the field is shaping up and might explain why cory booker didn't see a path to the nomination right. I mean really really what you've had in these polls we have had the new just to remind everybody. The new Iowa poll from the cells are pulling company which is kind of considered the gold standard of polling here in Iowa and showed four candidates bunched at the top Bernie Sanders Elizabeth Warren people to judge and Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders. Yeah the reporting is that he's at the top but leading within the margin of error. So you really just have these four candidates that are altogether and similarly. We got a new poll today from monmouth polling. That shows Joe Biden at the top. But either way you still have those four up at the top And then in both of them amy klobuchar coming in After that and so I mean really what this shows is two things one. Of course you have this lead pack. That's obvious the other thing that's important to keep in mind. Is that many Iowa. Voters could still change their minds lines and pulling off and changes quite drastically within the last week. Before the caucuses happen I will. Voters are making up their minds. And the really really weird nature of Iowa caucuses where you might have to give up your candidate and go caucus for someone else where you have to keep a second choice in mind that also I would argue. You keeps voters in this kind of undecided place until quite close to the caucuses so we get these numbers on the eve of this debate. That's coming up and I wonder what you guys are expecting from the debate and WanNa. I'm wondering if what we saw over the weekend with the Sanders Campaign Gene and the Warren campaign getting a bit chippy. Or I don't know what the right word is it. What the right word is but like you know the nonaggression treaty? He seems to have been broken so kind of get our listeners. Up to speed quickly the big thing that we saw this weekend is kind of this breakdown of what had been a months long very friendly campaign in between Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders not changed after politico reported on the script sanders volunteers. We're using when they're going out according candidates and I'm paraphrasing here but essentially said that if they're talking to an undecided voter WHO's leaning for Warren that they should tell that person that people who support warriner highly educated and more affluent they'd show up and vote democratic no matter what and that she's not going to bring any new voters invoices ended the Democratic Party. So they're pretty basically making the argument that Warren can't win This weekend weekend I was out with these candidates who are campaigning Iowa and it was before was asked about this and she essentially said that she was disappointed that Bernie Sanders.

"I have never been able to. You know who helped push that bill to the floor because Mitch. McConnell didn't want that bill to the floor it was the alliances we had with people like them. And and why is that important to me who lives in a neighborhood on that is vulnerable because you can have. Somebody can have their holier than thou position about. How dare you sit down with the coke brothers? There's general counsel but black people would still be in prison. Thousands have been the crack cocaine powder cocaine disparity correcting for that like we did in that bill ninety percent of the people being released thousands or black. And those folks. I tell you right now. Don't give a shit about whether I sat down with the coke brothers brothers or friends with Newt Gingrich or talked to Jim inhofe they just want justice but so this is actually a really rich spot here and one thing I want to say is I think that the criminal justice bill. The you're key on there is arguably the most important and impressive bipartisan. Achievement of recent years That that happened under Donald Trump too is I think very impressive and you jared Kushner so on the one hand I think that that is actually an example where things are not as log jammed as people think they are. I go back and forth on an underlying point. You're making here because I cover the Senate and everybody in the Senate we'll have a story about having found an unusual coalition in a way very much like the one you're talking about. They've found a human connection to somebody and then when I step back and look at it and I see the number of Party line vote. Sometimes I think that the humanity senator see in each other can sometimes create breakthroughs but it also ends up being a What's right put it misleading about the sort of like macro the politics of the Senate? You Know Joe Biden runs into this. Allot we're on the one. And he's saying he's going to get Republicans to work with him on the other hand the trying to call Hunter Biden a witness But the thing that I wanNA plot plot here because maybe it's this is that one form of radical confrontation is with your own side right that it's an argument for a with all these people on the left who think that politics should be a fight between the left and the right and who think you can't compromise into do want to demonize and I mean certainly a much sharper drawing of lines on the left and there has has been in recent years and I think that it is possible that one of the I guess maybe I need to put this to you. Not as not as amusing is one if your arguments that the left has become too in Namur d- of confrontation and politics of power and has lost its ability or it's optimism about politics of pluralistic compromise. I mean there's so many layers to what you just asked me very badly phrased well with what we're talking the Senate and so much what. I'm trying to talk about as a culture and so yeah look I. I've had arguments with people who wanna call me a a moderate pragmatic. Damn it to try to tell them far more radical than Than a lot of people that you think are radical because I live in a community where every single day I know what's at stake and I would much rather move the ball six inches for this family in my neighborhood and he'll make their lives six inches better than there's be surrendered to the purely that you're talking about that refuses to even have a negotiation. Were you're not going to get everything is not going to be black and white like you want it to be i. I know what's at stake in in in a very very personal ways lives are at stake in neighborhoods on the margins. Like like mine. Fine if we don't have people that can actually get into a scrum. Fight it out and come out with something but I also know that we have a broken system in American you've talked. What about this in lots of different podcasts that from campaign finance reform to gerrymandering these are things that break the whole system itself? You know I've had fights with people within my party you criticise me. For having a city that has high performing charter schools. The the the second highest performing charter school a city in America and and now in our party there's presidential candidate to get rid of the charters and by the way if they WANNA come after school serving black and brown low income kids in my city. You're going to have to come through me and and I don't care because if you're black in Newark from the time I was mayor a two now your chance of going to high school with pizzas wealthy suburbs that hire people. Oh two private. Detectives a follow around kids often brown kids to see where they go home to get so many people used to use fake addresses in suburban towns to give their kids some hope of a great public education. We your black kid. In my city your chance of going to high performing school beats the suburbs beat the average out there go up about four hundred percent and I don't care about your purity. We did what was necessary to now make our school system on the highest performing school systems in the country. I care about the people who are excluded from Opportunity getting it fairness justice and those things how will fight you using every created means possible to fight for people who are being left out in excluded. But that doesn't mean that I don't understand the larger tectonic plates. Have to shift. If we're going to be more democratic society and in appeared in America that's moving dramatically medically against democracy as corporate powers being elevated as individual rights and freedoms even to control. Your own body is being limited but but I want to get back to why I thank you that we won't make change. We never have. We didn't get in one thousand nine hundred twenty. We didn't get the right to vote for women because a bunch of men on the Senate floor or got together in a huddle and said Hey fellas. I think it's time let's give women the right to vote ready break. It happened because of incredible activism. Not just amongst women. The last Frederick Douglass. Last meeting he went to before he died was a suffrage meeting. Why do we watch the ADA? Why do we have disability rights? We have a long way to go but incredible disability rights activists. They were throwing themselves in front of buses. The civil disobedience of the of the disability community called the conscience of this country three to task and expanded our moral machination we changed laws and so forth from gun violence. I'm telling you I think about this every day because I'm haunted by by the people. I know that have been killed by gun violence. I'm haunted by the one time I tried to stop somebody from bleeding to death and failed from gunfire. I think about every day as president and how I'm going to get us out of this Rut deep morally failing Rut to be a nation that now has told all of our children that we can't protect you so we're GonNa send you to public schools that teach you hide. We've now more shelter in place drills than fire drills in America. I think all the time about his president. What can I do different different to scratch this old record? Were all in the groove and not changing anything and how we can begin to mobilizes country to do the things that ninety percent of country already agreed to do. Give me the gun control version. Yeah I mean I we've been going back and forth on this bit but if you the every day about how to not play by the Queen's rules on gun control that Brock Obama played by what what rules are you gonna GonNa play by. How are you going to change the game? Well Parkland students now. I think it was nowhere near the level of change. They were demanding for but they had a Republican governor being. Are you willing to introduce legislation out. You and I both know how that happened. That Republican Governor Sonny was more frayed. And I don't mean to and this is not actually morally necessarily right but ascribing to him of cynicism that he was more afraid of the Parkland students and backlash at the polls then he was of the NRA and the corporate gun lobby. That's what we're talking about here in. Politics is who is that person that's blocking change. More afraid of their corporate benefactors or the people themselves that's how we've gotten over filibusters in the past is it suddenly people understand. This is politics this is why I think king. So how do you make them afraid as president. I mean because Barack Obama also wanted the public opinion to be swept away the resistance and it wasn't enough and that any in public opinion after Sandy Hook was quite intense so when you think about what you will be able to do to force a different kind of confrontation. What is the different rules? You'll play by well because again. They we now live in a culture where we have a mass shooting has he arise and attention and focus and then it goes away so the question is again I do not want to discuss. Tactics is with us. But how do you sustain that public moral outrage for longer than a new cycle. How do you organize around that? How do you mobilize around that? And and that's when change is made but can why you don't want to discuss tactics with me because not that I like to cover tactics my thing in life but I think that the thing I'm trying trying to put you on his. I think people really feel they can imagine the Bernie Sanders presidency and its form of radicalism or the Joe Biden Presidency. And it's from a restoration and something that is you contain multitudes. You really do compared to other politicians have covered and we just had this really you. Just give me a really interesting exchange on the one hand. You're talking about the benefits of pragmatism. His in the need to actually that true radicals from requires you to advance about six inches. And then you sort of also trying to hold the other side of you understand the big forces uses and that you need to change everything and so I think it is hard for people to see specifically. Let me give you one specific tactic. I'M GONNA do. I will be the president that turns Texas blue. Tell me how well one as heck I have a girlfriend who founded vote fina. I can show you from the data this much invested. We'll get this much higher voter participation rates. Why have this party not done a massive voter registration engagement and mobilization because you and I both know Texas long ago past the demographics graphics that it should be a blue state? Why why are we not doing? Why did and this is a mistake of Obama he got elected goes into office? And then basically usually doesn't empower fifty state strategy for the Democratic Party and technology. I've been looking at longtime take my black minister. For example one of the biggest Black Churches Ages in New Jersey time for voting he says sold to the polls. I'll vans outside doesn't tell people who to vote for unless I'm on the ballot joking But there's there's no systems accountability now. I've looked social science research. You know what one of the biggest persuaders whether you as recliner going to vote in your school board election or not is one of the biggest persuaders. I'm sorry to say ashamed if you know that other people it'll be public whether you voted or not. It's much more likely you go to the polls. I could give my minister an APP today with design an APP that on his phone he would have his church membership lists and their voting record in every voting because this is public information now. It's a different conversation. What if he puts up his value? Search not telling you to vote for but vote into engage and he puts up on the big screen. Those people who don't vote the there are so many things we know work to mobilize engage. It's IT'S Y. Look I'm a guy who gets invited by everybody in my in my Senate every I and I do it willingly and we all should be doing it for each other but people want me to come out and help them to get folks. Vote vote for them..

We're going to eliminate this whole sector this sector, which employs about a million. People say bye say bye bye. Oh. And by the way, you will pay more tack taxes for the pleasure, which is incredible to me. Okay. Why? Because the government is going to be providing you with all of this stuff for free. Even though it's going to cost you tax payers more money. I'm sorry. That doesn't appeal to me. But I thank you for being very honest. Bernie sanders. At the forty seven years of a war on drugs. The government cannot keep drugs off the streets. They can't keep drugs out of schools, and they can't even keep drugs out of prisons. But yet somehow you think you're going to be able to control the cost of healthcare. It's insane to me. And then there's there's a Spartacus. Cory booker. Cory Booker said dooby cut number six zero. A Cory Booker says something that's just pretty much shut his campaign down all together with half the country van guns. I am a very one that is against handguns, and I know in my urban environment. I see little to no need for a guns at all. And I think that the the availability of guns and the ease with which even young people can get their hands on them is horrendous, and I would have if I had the power to do. So I would in fact, we're even looking towards making doing some local level handgun legislation. I'm gonna take every step. I can get guns out of the hands of those who commit crimes or those who might commit crimes. Thank you. Cory booker. Also, you could take Kamala Harris with you with this whole gun banning talk. But one thing I could tell you about Cory Booker is at least he has been consistent. He has said this his whole political life. But I don't think it's going to play in America. We gotta talk about a little bit of basketball, and I've got a chance to see the NBA championship game or series playoff series over the weekend.

"This would have been handled differently by the media if there were different players in the drama? Oh, yeah. I mean, come on. And and yet we have people on CNN vox correspondent Liz plank was on. And she said it was celebrities that were the problem the make America great again quote. I remember reading about this story and looking for real reputable media reporting on that, and I couldn't find what she said on CNN's, reliable sources, Brian Stelter? Why are you laughing? The joke rights CNN's, reliable sources with Brian Stelter? Okay. The people who repeating that quote. They were not news, Alison, we're not media outlets. It was repeated by pure people who maybe had good intentions of wanting to spread the story and had empathy for what they thought was a real story, but we can't confuse celebrity tweets with the media, and the press really the this is mega country quote first reported by TMC. Okay. You could say that's not a real media outlet. All right USA today. NBA news CBS news. The Washington Post all of them also reported that and not allegedly or not he claimed they reported it. As fact when the story was so fishy from the beginning. It smelled six ways to Sunday. The CNN host price altered continue. So you're saying actors and activists who are rushing to aside because they were friends with him. And they support him not the same Chicago reporters trying to find out what happened. Right. CNN at Brian Stelter on smollet, perhaps the questioning was not tough enough on good Morning, America. But ultimately, this is not about the media. Politicians are activists or any of the other people that might have been fooled. It's about Jesse really. It's only about him. It's not about why you were so gullible, and so many in the media were it's not why alleged wasn't used in the reports or he claims was used in the reports, it's not why the media was not more skeptical of a-changing story that was fishy. From the very beginning is not about any of that. It's only about jussie smollet, really. Several stories in the Washington Post. Had addressed the alleged attack. If. It was a fact not even still being investigated the New York Times same thing. Then there's. Alexandria, you Cortes, Maxine Waters. Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi. Cory Booker, Kamala, Harris, all of them jumping on board to tell you what they really think about you in America. And this is what I mean by there's so many layers to this story is not just about a minor celebrity who decided to use this to try to build up his career. It's about how it was viewed by the media, the liberals, the progressives the celebrities, but I repeat myself Senator Cory Booker, Kamala, Harris matching waters, Nancy Pelosi. See they and many others rushed to their keyboard. Maxine waters. Slamming blaming the attack on Trump all of a sudden, do we have people unable to study while black unable to mow a lawn while black unable to have a picnic while black and being attacked Pelosi? The racist homophobic attack on smell. It is an affront to our humanity. No, one should be attacked for who they are whom they love Kamala, Harris, this attack is a modern day lynching. Cory booker. He's the same words occasionally Cortes, the attack was not possibly a racist and homophobic attack. It was a racist and homophobic attack, and they're just more and more and more of that. All the same Pelosi's deleted her tweet now. She's deleted her tweet. Hasn't said anything more about it. But she's deleted her tweak. Cory Booker who originally called it a modern day. Lynching now is refusing to comment on the new evidence that makes it look like it was all a hoax when asked if he wants to make another comment. Well, the information still coming out, and I'm going to withhold until all the information comes out. Really? That's what he said Sunday. But what he said on January twenty ninth the very day that smell reported this. The vicious attack on Justice mullet was an attempted modern day lynching. I'm glad he's safe. Didn't wait for the facts. Then that's different. That's different. He went on. Sunday. Cory Booker Senator. Cory Booker running for president. We know in America that bigoted and bias attacks are on the rise in a serious way. Really which ones. By how much is it? A statistically significant increase significant increase. And why? Because I've got some fats facts excuse me from the FBI that show that there is not a statistically significant increase in. Hey crops and still you know, what the number one hate crime in America is to this day anti-jew. Not anti Muslim anti Jew. But that doesn't feed the media narrative. Booker was asked whether similarites apparent hoax undercuts, his anti lynching Bill that he and other Democrats are pushing a federal anti lynching Bill is if we don't already have laws on the books to take care of that. We have seen painful reality surgeon our country arise and anti-semitism anti-islamic attacks or seeing just vicious horrific cruel violence, it's motivated by bias, and we need to do more to protect all Americans and make sure all neighborhoods and communities are safe really passing another law by the US Senate is going to do that. SNL? This is what they see. They see you as a racist, homophobic, islamophobic as Xena Phob is every bad name. You can thank you know, you're not. But you can't prove a negative. Hey, you voted for Trump? Here's bad as a guy in a KKK. Cory booker. Cory Booker, man. Attempted modern day lynching. I mean think about what that really says about what he believes about America. Then there was paying sexual popstar at Janelle, Monet. This is put together by annual. He he he just did a big. He did he did a big summit summary, summation, whatever you wanna call it. He'd be pulled together. All these different tweets from all these different newsmakers celebrities politicians, and it's we printed out. It's like twenty pages long just showing how people jumped on this bandwagon about the jussie smollet story. And as I say, not just about at this is why making a big deal about it. It's about how they think about America case in point Janelle Monae, she's a pan sexual popstar. She said it's proved that it is still a risk daily to be a black out and proud human being. The stats from the FBI talking about the risks of a hate crime. Let me see I've got this for you. See exact number. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Here we go. This is from Kyle Smith wrote a good piece called let's chill about hate crimes. The FBI has started logging hate crimes it came up with a log of seven thousand incidents of all kinds and the entire country in the supposed nightmare first year. The Trump administration 2017 last year, we had the data in for every kind of crime starting all the way down to graffiti vandalism. The incidence rate you're ready point zero zero zero zero two percent not to percent point zero zero zero zero two percent in a country of three hundred twenty million people. We're supposedly sixty three million are so racist. They should be wearing KKK hoods. You had a hate crime incidents a point zero zero zero zero two percent. That's what they do. Crimes. One hundred thousand. But no, no, no. I mean any minute it's just a daily risk to walk around in this country. If you happen to be black or gay or whatever. Campbell Harrison at jussie smollet is one of the kindest most gentle human beings. I know I'm praying for his recovery. This was an attempted modern day lynching, no one should have to fear for their life because of their sexuality or the color of their skin. We must confront this eight. As if everybody you live in this United States of America, how many people do you know who are racist? That's one of the worst names, you could call someone in this country, the vast majority ninety five percent of us get along every day with absolutely no problem whatsoever. And I don't know how many that five percent. That's left is really into this stuff. Jussie celebrity co-star at lady grace buyers. She wrote hatred, inequality, racism and discrimination continue to course, through our country's veins semi is that just two guys. If this was even true, it's our nation. Actor Nico Puerto rela. Says this. He tweeted out the red hat is the white hood. No ifs, ands, or buts, if you wear it you attack Jesse. Really Joe Biden what happened today at jussie smollet must never be tolerated in this country lifted had happened at agree with them. We must stand up and demand that we no longer give the safe. This hate safe harbor that homophobia and racism have no place on the streets or in our hearts. I agree. For the vast majority of Americans that doesn't at Senator Sanders. The racist, homophobic attack on just you smell is horrific instance of the surging hostility toward minorities around the country. We must come together to radical all forms of bigotry and violence, you know, except against conservatives, and and people were maggots. But we've got this somebody stood up for it. There's a writer on vice Benita fromm. She wrote hate crimes in the US. A rare. We have the data ideologues are encouraging sexual minorities of color to have distrust, anxiety, and resentment of mainstream society and institutions, well, don't confuse them with the facts. No, no. And it goes on and on and on how about at received till up congresswoman when one of the most famous black engagement in America's not safe. The message is clear than it has ever been the dangerous lies spewing from the right wing is killing hurting our people. Then there's another attribute Lightner, you know, him. I want Trump and all maga- lunatics to burn in hell. That's tolerance. The president of at Hillary Rodham Clinton name is Chad h Griffin from the moment. Just let came forward. There have been leaks and spin from some within the Chicago police departments that have been used to discredit undermine him. This is exactly the treatment that big of hate crimes fear and why they often stay silent. But what if he's not telling the truth? What if the police were leaking? That's the get the truth. Why won't you pay attention to the truth? And the more. We have the politicians in the celebrities in the media believing this nonsense that America's this inherently racist nation. No matter what the we're we haven't. We haven't changed in slavery days. Leads to this kid who was arrested some are saying over the pledge of allegiance. Well, that's not exactly what happened.

"Get the latest issue of amplify absolutely free by texting kgo eight to eight eight nine eight eight that's G O eight eight to eight eight nine eight eight stories that have been breaking. Well, you've been at work. This is the Larry O'Connor shell or gay relationships in your opinion, immoral. The hats Corey Booker Senator from New Jersey running for president, not coincidentally. Today is part of a judicial confirmation process for one Naomi row, she of Indian descent American of Indian descent. Her parents are from India party, in fact, Hersi Indians and. She is conservative. And understandably I believe she is a believing Christian and as a faithful believing Christian or anyone who respects and acknowledges their faith if they are Jewish Christian Muslim. The vast majority of believers in this country, if they take their faith seriously and the scripture that accompanies their faith. They would acknowledge that we are all imperfect. We are all sinners, and there are a whole host a laundry list of sins detailed in both the old and the New Testaments or the Koran that define exactly what it means to be a center, and yes, one of those things would be engaging in homosexual behavior. That doesn't mean that people who do that are to be condemned or to be what bite we humans that is. They might who knows. We don't know we don't make determinations on who was going to hell only. God knows that. But it doesn't mean that we are to treat them poorly or to discard them or to give them fewer rights than others or to be mean to them or to hurt them in any way whatsoever. Nor would we do that to anyone who SIMS because we are all sinners that's sort of the tenant of our faith last. I checked. But Cory Booker. Wants to do something. That's rather unconstitutional. He actually threw his line of questioning today in the Senate Judiciary hearing wants to put some kind of religious test on whether you can be a federal judge. If you take your faith, seriously or gay relationships, in your opinion, immoral. Senator. I'm not sure, you know, the relevance of that too. I think that relevant your opinion. If you think African American relationships are immoral teething gay relationships, aren't moral you personally believe that get reaction. I do not you do not believe that. Senator my personal views on any of these subjects are things. I would put to one side, and I would faithfully not willing to say here. Whether you believe is sinful for a man to meant to be married. You're not you're not willing to comment on that. You're not willing to say here. Whether you believe it is sinful for two men to be ma-. You're not willing to say. Not only am I not willing. I would suggest with all due respect. Mr. Senator that the line of questioning goes against. Entire constitution. Stands for. This this. This is a religious to. I it's not my job that Mark constitution precludes you from asking me what I believe to be sinful or not. How dare you, sir? Have you know, shame should be the response. She has much more control of herself than I do does Naomi row. That's probably why she's in line to be a federal circuit court judge. And then there was this part, which was really delightful. Here's Cory Booker that that genius of the United States Senate. Have you ever had an LGBTQ law clerk, I've not been a judge. So I don't have any law. What about your law clerks? What about your law clerks are any of them gay? I'm not a judge. So I don't have any clerks. But then he went further, and before I continue with this line of questioning may I just point out that the federal law right now, I'm pretty sure dictates that it is illegal to actually ask the sexual preferences of a potential employees. I know around here at my place of business. I can't go around to people who work for me, or who I work with air anywhere and say, so who is it you sleep with you know, what what what what brandy asleep with you like the guys like the gals who do you who do you end up? You know, what floats your boat? You can't do that. Cory Booker hard, working someone working for you. I'm to be honest. I don't know the sexual orientation of my my staff.

"And I know I mean take with a grain of salt, but there's going to be a lot of people running and the DNC said that access to the debate stage is going to be driven either wholly or partly I would assume probably partly by ability to generate small donors now. I'm sure that most of the centers are not going to have trouble qualifying past whatever bar they have there. But it does mean this going to be something that we're gonna be talking about a lot more, thankfully, I think that's one of the best developments. I've heard a long time. Yeah.

And we said it's because you missed the small donors, and that's a better indicator of enthusiasm, energy, etc. And the fact that you see has accepted that is wonderful. So let's see how the debates play out. But now getting to the heart of Cory booker's fundraising. Look, it's super real issue. I almost none of the mainstream articles mentioned it, but you know, we went back and looked at of course, to intercept and other places that has documented so back in. Fourteen when he ran for Senate is first full term, he raised more money, and this is a mazing from the financial industry than any other Senator. Okay. But I'm not anywhere near done. He also raised the most amount of money. He's number one and all these categories from the real estate industry, entertainment industry, tech industry, accountants and groups considered to be pro Israel. So why? Wow. And been donors love. Cory Booker does all the sectors everything you want. He is very he's also we must be like loving HQ to Amazon headquarters. I don't know any kind of probably against beady s for sure. Not really understanding anyway. Great awesome. Let me give you just a couple of the numbers really fast. So from securities and investment he received one point eight seven million dollars back in two thousand fourteen ton of money, obviously also received more pharmaceutical manufacturing cash over the past six years than any other democratic Senator two hundred sixty seven thousand dollars amongst the number of others. Here's my one of my favorites. So skiers in investment industry, the financial industry. So he he's number one at one.

"Green new deal and Medicare for all. Although on those two last ones there are there's a need for further details because he said today for Medicare for all he would not be in favor of eliminating private health insurance. And on the green new deal the sunrise movement they tweeted about it earlier today. And they said there are elements of it that he has supported that. I would say go. Farther than for instance, what Kamala Harris said last weekend, but he has not necessarily committed to the sort of urgent action. That most committed environmentals mean when we talk about agree deal. Yeah. But look it's a pretty good record right now in in a different segment. We'll also analyze all the ups and downs of of Cory Booker, and he's taking a ton of money from all these different industries in the past. And I think that that does merit some skepticism. More significant skepticism, but I'm super happy to have him as an ally in all of these and he did great work on criminal Justice reform. So I don't think that that's necessarily question. And I think that a lot of times those trick where they say like, oh, so you're saying is about person. No, nobody said that. Right. So we're not having conversation about whether someone is a good person or a bad person. A good progressive are bad progressive. A good Senator about center, we're having conversation about who would be the best person to be president of the United s-. Dates america. So I'm happy to have Cory Booker on the team. I'm not sure that I want him to be captain. So so, and that's what this contest about who's going to be the captain of the team in. And if you're progressive, you might want the most progressive candidate, you'd be thrilled that he's at least on board for Medicare for all its cetera. And so or you might say, hey, you know, what I think someone who's more centrist is going to win. I don't think so think someone who was more progressive as much better chance of winning. But anyway for better for worse. That's record you want to get into some of the potential issues. Yes. So Cory Booker is now he's in the race. And like like you said he's getting a lot of positive coverage. At least initially probably will continue. But at some point he's got to if they want him or Kamala Harris in democratic primary. He does come into the race though with a number of tension issues a lot of the having to do with his fundraising. He's a noted great fundraiser. But that often means that they're. Money from people that we would prefer that they do not. So first off small donors. Let's talk about that those who gave two hundred dollars or less account for eleven percent of his Senate fundraising base. According to FCC records, he raised his percentage of small dollar donors to twenty seven percent in the past two years. But Mr. Booker has the lowest percentage of small dollar donor funds of any center thought to be winging presidential bid up until relatively recently. We can compare that to some of the others if bring up us chart, you'll see some of the fundraising as well as the percentage that's small donors. So you see there that he's at eleven percent. Someone like Kirsten gillibrand at sixteen comma Harris thirty two, but then you have Elizabeth Warren it half and Bernie Sanders at sixty one percent. So it's pretty huge range a huge difference between eleven percent and sixty one percent. Even what he raised it to twenty seven is a lot lower than either Elizabeth Warren Auburn Sanders. So I'm gonna give it back to complement here. So. To be fair to Cory Booker eleven percents really low because and not because he has a two little small donors. That's only half their question. The other have questions because he has a lot of really large donors. So so. I'm but that those are the facts, so it's not like my God. He cannot give small donors is that he has such gigantic donors that dwarfs small donors. The fact that he got it up to twenty seven percent in the last two years is meaningless wasn't running for office. So he wasn't soliciting campaign contributions from Wall Street etcetera. So eleven percents the number to look at there. Yeah. And should we care about the Susie Azam folks have from small donors as opposed to giant corporations? Yeah. I think it's a perfectly legitimate thing that consider. Yeah. Yeah..

"A little bit too policies. I wanna give you guys a heads up a bit of a warning based on some of the political history of Cory Booker. What might be coming to a news cycle sometime in the near future understand that he is a big one for sort of political performances in the real world, which none of these are bad necessarily? But just visit thing he does. So he went on a ten day hunger strike during his mayoral run to bring attention to housing issues. He went on food stamps to show how difficult it is during one big storm. He shoveled constituents driveway and turned his Twitter account into a thing to coordinate shoveling. And so those are the sorts of things that he likes to do. He also you might recall ran into a burning building to save his neighbor. And so if buildings start to spontaneously combust the near him in the future. Much out. So well as the media game really, well, he does seems to hit a Mark that like let's say well Warren has missed in the past. But so it seems sort of you know, and no matter what your politics are. There's a the popularity contest via Twitter and like obviously running into save his neighbor just for Twitter because like. That wins in points to do these stunts. He knows how to appeal to people now. So guys looked cuts both ways. So he plays a media game. Well, and hence glowing articles every article I read was glowing about Cory Booker on the other hand, those are good things to draw attention to and so I liked it. He did those things I mean called stunts, you can call it anything you like, but he's drawing attention to poverty, and food stamps, etc. Shown, some news driveway. God bless his heart rate. I don't know how big the fire was I really don't. I don't know if it was like a little smoke in the background. Gathers girl or if it was like a real serious five. But in either way, yet, nobody would you run into fire, even if it was politics, right? So give him credit give them credit. So those are good things that he drew attention to good things that he did Trump said he would run into a school shooting without a gun. Done. Anyway. For any of these. I just imagined. What if ABC did this? I'd like it. So. Anyway, just that might be coming. So Cory Booker now announced what issues is he going to be driving? At least in the early phases of this campaign. Went to see how things develop Jeff Stein of Washington Post spoke with some of Cory booker's aids in here. Few of the things that they brought up the baby bonds program that Booker has previously talked about setting up sort of an initial investment in every child basically to help to eliminate some of the systemic inequality of America criminal Justice reform antitrust action legalizing marijuana that something he's talked about for a long time a pilot program for federal jobs guarantee, housing tax credits for enters a.

"I grew up knowing that the only way we can make change is when people come together. My dad told me boy never forget where you came from. Or how many people had to sacrifice to get you where you are? So over twenty years ago, I the central ward of Newark to fight slum ward and help family state in their homes. I still live there today. And I'm the only Senator goes home to a low income inner city community, I community that took a chance on. It is not a matter of can we it's a matter of do. We have the collective will the American will. I believe we do together we will channel or common pain back into our common purpose together. America. We will rocks. On Cory Booker. And I'm running for president of the United States of America. Very exciting high energy ad so question now, are you ready to endorse? Yeah. We're about a year out from Iowa primary. So obviously, look I've been telling you guys in every single instance hear about let's see what they got will analyze Corey a little bit more as the show progresses and the good stuff that he's on these very good stuff and not so good stuff. But I'm initially amused by the reaction that he's getting so John's, right? Everybody's noting that he is brimming with energy and said that said the only tweak they own one of the very very tweets. They had of him was that his high energy was almost comical. And I liked that. He said that want. Said that like even CNN's kind of dunking on his attitude. They're like, okay, we have no personality. But you feel like you're faking it. But, but, but it was only smidge one of the very few tweaks I'm gonna get you some great comical over the top compliments CNN gave him in a second. But I remember Mitt Romney started his campaign. Video the same way. It was up right? With the historically black college marching band. I'm pretty sure Mitt Romney had the exact same marching bands. Which find the way for those of you who knew what the best moment of twenty thousand one definitely beyond Coachella performance. And that was a total rip off of the say so pretty much could have been like on the run tour number two, very Jay Z verbiage. Is been done Corey like you kinda need to like shot out to the Queen. If you're going to rip off her so bad just don't want to be exactly warming. I mean, but it's totally like maybe the beehive will be on our side. So, but anyway, it's it's a fine video and just like, yeah. And he lives in newer blesses hard for that. That's great. It just like Mitt Romney lives, the low income community in Salt Lake. A random from yours. Although although there actually think of it we will return in twenty twelve Cory Booker famously defendant Mitt Romney from Obama's attacks. Because he said, look, we shouldn't demonize people in private equity and high finance. Those are really good folks really good folks who've given Cory Booker at ton of campaign money at least in the past. Now, he doesn't take corporate pack money. So let's be fair on all counts. So now to CNN this is my favorite part. So I remember when you know, they establish media. They have not been overly kind to Elizabeth Warren or Bernie Sanders particularly Sanders, but they've had a took a bunch of pot shots at Elizabeth worm. And so I'm sure they did the same for Cory Booker where any announced so I will read you some of the things that they wrote about him. He's got a pragmatic approach as opposed to progress. So so, of course, are not pragmatic that right now. Just warming up. No big deal. Right. He has raw political talent. Same thing. They said about burning. He is at quote he's quote. He's a powerful contender. He is a gifted orator order. I should say. And then they go to a politician like we didn't say this. They said what? Which is by the way, the same thing. They do with progressive. I didn't say Bernie Sanders was a terrible human being. I got this legislative. You're saying he's terrible human being right? So in this case, they found Cedric Richmond, Louisiana democrat, and they quote him as the last line in the pace that Cory Booker is quote driven more by faith and purpose than politics. Oh, come on. Is that about anybody?.
