How Breaking Baseballs Unwritten Rules Is Changing The Game
"So we're going to rewind back last august when the padres and the rangers were playing each other home and home series between the san diego padres abbott taxes ranger and see eighth-inning. Thanks very much guys as we move along here to the eighth inning one. The cossio takes over for texas. The padres are up by seven runs and bases are loaded. that is all four and another walk. This sitting nicasio second. This will load the bases for the padre fernando tatis junior who's one of baseball's brightest young stars. He comes up to the plate and he works a three count now traditionally in baseball. You're supposed to not swing in the situation because it could be interpreted as trying to run up the score especially with the padres by seven runs and taty manager jayce tingler basically send them assigned to lay off the next pitch but tattoo doesn't see the sign and he crushes the ball out of the ballpark. This is to right. Field back at goes mando has done it again. Touchy junior grand slam. Hits a grand slam and so what happens after that is basically pretty familiar to a lot of baseball fans which is tattoos being the center of criticism for violating the unwritten rules of trying to run up the score. I didn't like it personally. we're up by seven and eighth innings typically not a good time to swing through and then something weird started happening which. I hadn't seen a lot in baseball. Culture in general was that people really came out in full force and start defending him. This is professional baseball. You've played at the end of this whole thing. I think you gotta keep in mind. Is the players. Game is a junior is not a child so stop demanding to be treated with kid gloves. It's time to get out of your feelings. Baseball boomers and it wasn't just media members. It
Sens. Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand Call for New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to Resign
"In regards to sexual harassment story we're dealing with essentially unethical but not illegal behavior. But that's burying of the lead because in this case is vastly more important to be or to talk about the doctoring of official figures that he had nursing home deaths from the justice, part men, officials, New York legislators and, more importantly, the general public. You're listening to Saturday night on the circle. I'm your humble host Ethan Hampshire producer Donnie on the board. Of course, I'm referring to the ongoing scandal of Governor Cuomo. And it appears things are just getting worse. Republicans finally waking up to the fact that they understood up and do something, even though they're not in a position of power in the state of New York in the New York State Assembly On Monday, they announced an impeachment resolution against Governor Cuomo, saying they believe Democratic governor has lost credibility and trust and has an inability. The lead of the state. Of New York. This is amid his sexual harassment allegations which have been levied against him. Investigators are investigations already underway into the handling of his Corona virus pandemic. State Assembly Minority Leader Will bar play announced Republicans won't be able to force the vote or wouldn't be able to force the vote but would keep pounding the issue. They received a quick payoff because Thursday the situation there already changed now. Currently the investigation not far yet far along and focused on that the top members of Cuomo's coronavirus task force, the Albany Times Union, reported, which cited to source with direct knowledge of the matter. Neither Cuomo or administration officials have yet at this point I've been accused of wrongdoing when it comes to either of the matters now. Thursday, Majority of state legislators called for his right Resignation, including Democrats. The Democrats launched an impeachment impeachment investigation, and police in the state capital say they stood ready for an investigate to investigate a groping allegation. At least 100 21, members of the State Assembly and Senate's have said publicly they believe Cuomo should quit office. Now, according to Italia, taken by The Associated Press count includes 65 Democrats and 56 Republicans. Which is an astounded figure, Democrat Assemblywoman Alan Gunther said. All of us are extremely disappointed. I think there's no room in the world right now, for that kind of behavior. He should have known better now, one of the aspects of this story that I think few people have mentioned is that that this is Ah. This is a culture of the Andrew Cuomo administration. This is a news. This isn't a surprise. People who have been associate ID with Andrew Cuomo have been well familiar with this behavior. Now AIDS air, starting to speak about the culture in the office, which required Cuomo to groom and hire attractive young women to be in his employ, which is a clear abuse of the power dynamic when you're specifically seeking that type of situation Mission and setting that type of situation up. It gets better because now Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and majority of House Democrats from New York, including representatives Jerry Nadler and exact Alexandria Cossio Cortez joined the chorus on Friday, calling for the governor to resign. Nadler, the powerful chair of the House Judiciary Committee, said that Latino James investigation into the harassment allegations against the governor should Continue, but there's a difference between formal investigations that may end up in charge is any question of confidence in our political leadership of Governor Cuomo has lost the confidence of the people of New York and Governor Cuomo must resign and that was coming from Jerry Nadler. So, yes, even Democrats now joining the chorus of calls For Governor Cuomo to resign, and it's amazing how the course of one individual can be completely changed in just a year, because you know, a year ago, this guy was being featured prominently on National News by July, Anthony Fauci said that New York was the model of pandemic response. Hey, want a primetime Emmy and then now the world Is collapsing around Andrew Cuomo. And it's just unfortunate that the central focus is being centered around the sexual harassment allegations and not the nursing home death cover up because as far as anyone is concerned, like I said, the outside of the segment is far as we know. Right now. The sexual harassment allegations are not criminal in nature, they are merely unquestionably unethical. But that is wholly different and magnitude from the nursing home death from the causing of individuals to lose members of their family. Certainly that represents a Maura significant and agree Jin's egregious breach of trust from the New York governor. Pretty interesting stuff. Also representatives an idea of the last quest. Who served in Congress since 1993 said there's only one way that the governor can truly restore accountability in confidence to his office. He must resign. Interesting stuff. You're listening to
Democrats left scrambling on a $15 minimum wage now that it appears left out of COVID-19 stimulus bill
"But republicans have been arguing that the democrats plan to push the relief package through the senate without republican. Support is little more than a way to force a liberal wishlist on extraneous policy aims and with almost two trillion dollars in the air. It's tough to argue that. This isn't a scattershot approach to big problems that aren't going to be cheap to fix. While the nonpartisan congressional budget office estimates that nine hundred thousand americans would be lifted out of poverty and fourteen million workers would see their paychecks increase. If the minimum wage is increased at also approximates the house plan would cost the us economy. One point four million jobs at present the gop seems unable to derail the broader plan but democrats could inadvertently do it for them if they aren't careful i. It's possible that more conservative. Senate democrats could balk at the package including senator joe manchin. Who has said. He is worried about spending more taxpayer dollars without a specific target. Others like senator. Kirsten cinema have said they are uncomfortable about triggering. A rules change as pushed by. Oh cossio cortes. And neither she nor mentioned are championing a fifteen dollars per hour wage so even at a fifty vote threshold. Democrats may still lack support if they nuked the filibuster to try to push the package through with a minimum wage hike. Then there's the risk from the left if the likes of ocasio cortez and kana dig in. They could end up. Hobbling the relief package if not spiking it. When lawmakers in the past have deployed this bare majority trick. The house would pass the first draft of this legislation and send it to the senate the senate then should work with the house tinker with its linkage and send it back to the house and then the house in an ideal world should accept the changes negotiated by its leadership but as the parliamentarian ruled. You can use this process. Only on specific fiscal moves and a minimum wage isn't one of them. The process was designed to iron out kinks and nettlesome budgets. Not necessarily major social programs democrats. No they have public opinion on their side for the add on wage boost and the underlying two trillion dollar bill. It's going to be very tempting for progressives not to at least flirt with trying to get the two married again it's sexy for the lefties and doesn't alienate most moderates plus. It might actually do good for the poorest workers in the economy. Those disproportionately hit by the pandemic's fallout the margins. Though are razor. Thin democrats can afford just four defections in the house and to already voted against this bill in its first at bat if progressives are thwarted instead of taking a win on passing a relief bill without the minimum wage increase they may be tempted to eliminate the filibuster for good to try to pass both together. If the rules requiring sixty votes for almost everything keep anything from happening. Why not blow them up entirely. Well it's possible but views on that are about split as the senate itself which means democrats could go from chasing popular ideas like boosting the minimum wage and getting cash to americans to a partisan process brawl. That has at best coin. Toss backing so. This comes down to a central question inherent to so much in washington will the ideal be the downfall of the possible. Or will someone have a mean. Girls moment and have the outburst. So many think
Congress gets involved with GameStop and Robinhood
"Story has been crazy but is it all legal whether it's the flurry of retail traders drug stock prices or the hedge funds and partner companies trying to maintain their dominance wall street is entering some new territory and the rules. Aren't really clear here to explain. Why congress is actually starting to involve is recruits. Ronnie mola sherani. Hey daddy so catch me up on game stop so we talked here on the show about retail traders mobilizing on read. It obviously A key part of the internet to buy hundred game. Stop stock right. And then there's this. Hedge fund called melvin capital but hedge for the general were shorting the stock and they lost all this money. What happened since we last talked about game. Stop so basically robin hood. This commission free app that everyone's been using to buy all these memes stocks like games up. Amc announced that it was actually going to restrict trading on certain stocks including game. Stop rate as all. These people were making a lot of money in the stock price was super high. And as a result everyone got really upset especially these retail investors. A lot of people joined this class action lawsuit saying that robinhood manipulated the market by restricting trades and caused them to lose a lot of money. Sort of this. This platform has become Now being dogged by allegations as it's an tank for one side or another. So why would robin and do this. Why would they yup. They're supposed to just facilitate trades and not care whether game stock goes up or down. Don't they make money on volume so they want more activity. But why would robinhood care if some hedge funds were taking a hit. So i don't think robin hood did care that hedge funds retaining hit. There's a lot of confusion about this but basically it comes down to this plumbing about how the market works and how trades are actually executed that you would never really need to know but essentially because all of these people were investing in these really volatile stocks stocks whose prices go up and down. Robinhood has to keep a certain amount of money. These deposits with clearing houses that are based on how volatile a stock is toronto. Keep some money. Just in case stuff goes race yes essentially and because so. Many people were trading in these really volatile stocks. They had to keep a lot more money. Something like tenfold. What they're used to. And they just didn't have the money for so they actually had to get an infusion of cash rely on a few of their investors to give them a billion plus dollars in order that they could keep letting people trade came out said that we didn't want to stop anyone from trading. Anything this has nothing to do with pets funds or anything. This was just a. We didn't have enough money to clear. These deposits okay so for all the conspiracy theories that have been going on about robin hood somehow being on the take or something like that. You're saying the explanation is actually more boring. It's just has to do with the way that complex financial from his actions like this happened right. And i mean it doesn't help that the way that robin hood makes money is it actually has this other company called citadel securities actually executed trades. And they pay robin hood and they make money because they sell the stocks for a little bit more than they buy them for. They make a few pennies on each trade. And then the guy who owns citadel it all securities also owns a hedge fund called citadel which helps bail out melvin capital which was short and game. Stop okay so there's some associations between between Robin hood and the people who were shorting stock. Yes but they're saying this had nothing to do with the decision they made. That was simply because the deposit requirements for too big sure. Sure okay so now what happens now. I mean so. We're starting to see some action in washington about this. Obviously this politically appealing to a lot of people because you can run against wall street running in silicon valley run against the rich people like. Tell me what we can expect. Obviously there's a lot going on dc but the seems like something that could have some. Bipartisan outrage to it yeah you saw lawmakers on both sides of the tweeting and calling for hearings. There's definitely going to be multiple hearings in congress about what happened. Precisely lawmakers are pretty happy to find any reason to call into question. What's going on wall street. And why a lot of this seems very unfair conservative. Republicans like ted cruz want some answers. Progressive democrats warn zero cossio. Cortez are making a big deal about this. Warren obviously has a background in financial regulation. Tell me tell me what she's thinking. About what congress should do about this just so we get a flavor of the types of things being talked about washington. Yeah she's saying there needs to be an sec investigation. The sec needs to do their job. Make sure there's more transparency in financial markets. Make sure it's not rigged. Make sure there's no manipulation so she's sort of just calling for them to figure out what's going on. Are they doing anything about this yet. So the sec side. It's monitoring the situation. It's also going to look into whether any investors were disadvantaged because they weren't allowed to buy these certain securities It's also important to know the sec's in transition right now. They have an acting chair but they're waiting for their nominee Gary gansler to actually be confirmed. But in the meantime yeah. You're you're just gonna see the sec monitoring the situation. They makes me wonder. How does robin feel about sort of these allegations or conspiracy. Theories robert is now being a little bit more open about what happened and they were in the initial kind of crisis mode. Yeah i mean. They've lifted some of the limits that they had on securities. You could now by game stop again if you buy a shares of amc. They're also going on the sort of like pr offensive. Where they're saying exactly what happened. The they wanna tell you all about clearing houses they want to tell you about the deposits the volatility. You know how how they had to spend so much money this time. So like even the vlad ten of went on clubhouse yesterday with your skin kind of tried to explain exactly what happened. you know. And they're just trying to say this wasn't some sort of giant wall street cabal. This was a really boring thing that had to do with deposit requirements.
Robinhood CEO speaks out after GameStop stock chaos
"Robin hoods roller coaster ride and a new interview from the company's ceo. Trying to slow things down. The popular free brokerage app has experienced unprecedented high volume of trading as well read it reading retail traders pile into a few highly. Shorted stocks in a move organized. In part on the irreverent wall street bet sub reddit. The volume was so overwhelming and companies. You've been hearing about maybe again after a few years game stop. Amc blackberry and nokia but robin hood suspended trading in those stocks on thursday. Wow the reaction to this move was swift and surprising both congresswoman out of cossio. Cortez and senator. Ted cruz found themselves on the same side of an issue. Both tweeting that robin hoods moves were unacceptable and at the expense of the little guy investor over the hedge funds feeling the squeeze when stocks they shorted suddenly shot up a thousand percent in the legend. Robin hood stole from the rich to give to the poor so this was a confusing metaphor yesterday for everybody. Robin hood said it was a risk management decision to protect investors the markets and the firm. The company has to deposit money to a clearinghouse based on the volume of trades. And they feared they'd be unable to meet the anticipating deposit requirements now. The company's ceo joined our andrew. Ross sorkin of squawk box just earlier this week on the power of retail investors. It is a huge time for retail investors. Check your feed for that conversation and then take a listen to this one done just two days later. When the company was dealing with the anger of the robin hoodies they're typically younger users and trying to raise money through credit lines to ensure it had enough capital to resume trading on these volatile stocks. Here's andrew flat. Ten of is with us right now and we appreciate you joining us on a day where there are so many questions there are frankly as you know a lot of angry customers out there and a lot of questions about what took place in the decisions that you made to limit so many your customers ability to buy stocks like game. Stop questions about whether you have a liquidity problem. Whether you're trying to protect them from themselves whether citadel did this explain what happened today. Thank you for having me on the show again andrew. So what happened. Today was as you pointed out. We had to make a very difficult decision. It's been a it's been a challenging day. We made the decision in the morning to limit the buying of about thirteen securities on our platform so to be clear customers could still sell those securities if they had positions in them and they could also trade in the thousands of other security is on our platform so it was a difficult decision. And that's what we had to do as part of normal operations but explain. Why did you do this. What did the call you and tell you you had to do this. Was there a problem inside. The company in terms of liquidity in terms of the demand deposits. The you had to put it in front to the exchanges. What led to this sure and let me let me explain exactly how this works. First of all i want to address some of the misinformation. That's been out there. There's a lot of a. We absolutely did not do this. At the direction of a market maker or hedge fund or anyone we row to or other market participants. The reason we did it was because Robin a brokerage firm. We have lots of financial requirements including sec net capital requirements and clearinghouse deposits. So that's money that we have to deposit burying clearing-houses so some of these requirements fluctuate bid based on volatility in the markets and they can be substantial in the current environment where there's a lot of volatility and a lot of concentrated activity in In these names that have been going viral on social media so we're really in unprecedented times and in order to protect the firm in protect our customers. We had to limit by in these in these stocks in to be absolutely. It's ahead but it sounds to me though that you're suggesting that there was a liquidity problem inside the firm and my question about that then raises all sorts of new questions about whether there's a systemic issue underneath the system and underneath the company unto itself. No there was no liquidity problem and to be clear this was done preemptively so we did this. Proactively in thousands of whether securities remain tradable on the platform customers that held these positions. Were able to seldom in. We're doing what we can to allow a buying 'em to remove these restrictions in the morning but also You might have seen robin hood has been the number one app in the in the store overall so we have seen unprecedented interest due to the fact that finance has been culturally irrelevant in a way that hasn't been before and these stocks are going viral on social media. And i think it's really interesting to juxtapose against some of the other questions that we've been having a before this of course robin For everyday investors from the very beginning with stood for investors opening up access and giving them the ability to trade commission. Free in whatever they want a in. We've gotten a lot of criticism that you know. Maybe there should be more restrictions so it pains us to have had to these restrictions and we're gonna do what we can to enable trading test. How concerned should customers be though about the robustness of the system. If in fact what ultimately had to happen was you had to shut down. Access to buying these securities because of the deposit required. Well to be clear. This was the system working. We have the ability to restrict buying in symbols for a unprecedented market conditions. Such as this in to be clear we didn't shut down the system. We shut down by four of these thirteen stocks for the thirteen securities but customers that position could still sell and customers still could buy and sell the thousands of other securities on the robin hood platform. But when you look at the precipitous fall for example of game stop. Do you think that robinhood bears any responsibility for that. I can't comment on price. Action of of securities and probably would be inappropriate for me to do that in also. I should know rodman wasn't the only firm to restrain buying other. Brokerages have been restricting the buying and trading of these types of securities all week. And even today. Of course we get the lion's share of the attention since we've been the cognitive referring for retail investing in america but other other people are dealing with these challenges as well
Dallas Man Charged For Allegedly Threatening To “Assassinate AOC" During Capitol Riots
"A man from Texas has been charged with threatening to assassinate New York Democratic representative Alexandra Cossio Cortez Garrett Miller was arrested earlier this week for participating in the storming of the U. S. Capitol on January 6th and tweeting assassinate AOC federal agents say Miller also posted that the officer who shot and killed a trump supporter deserves to
How do you avoid hitting growth ceilings?
"So we're going to go into one of our favorite topics. One of the ones that get asked a lot of bad in terms of companies who are in scale up. So not so much startup startup the the challenge isn't where are the opportunities or the challenged isn't on my God like I've run out of room to continue to grow. It's how do I prioritize the best places for me to get scaled to get leveraged? How do I make good decisions? We've talked about on the show before that leadership is really all about how you. Say No to things how you prioritize things and we just released an episode Tuesday Thomas Play who is the VP Growth Cossio manages a team of one hundred and fifty people hopefully people caught that episode another part of leadership we talked that episode. Episodes team design. But so in startup, you're kind not going, hey, where is the opportunities like I'm running out of road? I don't find. I am running into these seasons. You're kind of more prioritizing where spend the small amount of time resources and budget that I have when you move the scale on the things that happens is hugh start to reach plateaus in certain channels and you call them growth sealants you can call them just hidden that kind of point where there's really let rim to continue to scale in that channel, and so one of the first concepts will start with is we've talked about this before we'll go through a couple of concepts and the notes left taken on them so. There's all kinds of starts product channel fit, and so Paul Graham has a great quote. He talks about most startups fail because they fail to understand their users problems. They've just fundamentally the product that their users. May their users may use, but they can certainly live without right. So when you're making choices in terms of the things that are integral to how you do your work or how you live your life, these products is failed to fulfill that goal for those users or failed to fulfill that promise to there's users. Another common reason why companies fail is because they have failed to. Think about their product channel Said and you've heard Scotland. I talk about this a lot on the tail Dr. it's a term coined by Brian by to CEO at reforge reforge one of the best places you can go learn about growth a lot of the people who come on here talk about growth and talk about leadership in growth are actually teachers over on the reforge course. So we're startup cannot become a scale up with at least one channel where they can acquire customers in a scalable and repeatable way. Right you can go through any company that has reached the scale up where past product market fit than they've kind of gone on to become this kind of scale company they figured at least one channel that is able to acquire users leads whatever it may be in a repeatable scale of the way. So if you look at apps like Uber Lift Snapchat, they all started with these kind of low local strategies which were. Not Scalable but could get them some initial growth right if you think about lifted uber these global companies which. Millions of users in lots and lots in drivers have created this whole economy of of drivers and users across the globe. They went to round two local offices to begin with. So they picked her a city and they went around and give free credits at different offices. They would drive up to the office and they will give the staff that office they would give them all free credits to use uber lift and they targeted of course, tech companies. Tech companies tend to be early adopters and can help spread those APPs Evan Evan Williams for snapchat snapchat. Actually, I think recently went above their IPO price for the first time ever kind of benefit from a lot of the noise around Tiktok but snapchat when they launched an Williams, he went to malls and give out flyers that's not very scalable. And that helps them in that startup mode when they're trying to find product market fit. But obviously when they get into the scale up mode, they need to find real real scalable growth in the do that for those apps do that through Virology User Valley where you can spread that within your own network incentivize where. Uber do things like credits. We can give credits to people to get their first ride with the APP for free. PINTEREST and EXC-. Really, these platforms have scaled through for the most part Google I'll give you a little bit of caveat to that but for the most part scaled through google, but Oetzi and pinterest. In the first days of like when they were trying to find product market fit they did local meet up straight. It's kind of funny to think about that him pinterest at sea kind of marketplace Pinterest, the large social network. and. It's funny to think about that. They started up with these local meet UPS Oetzi woodcraft people who kind of sold embark crafts pinterest with. Interior designers pinterest is interesting because you could say that axiom pinterest of. Scale through Google Pinterest, initially scale through facebook. So a lot of their scale Kim through social. They did a really good job of figuring out how to get people to share their boards, kind of way through facebook and facebook chains around with some point and shut that down and Pinterest is quite. An interesting use case because then they they managed to pivot to Google and they did not smart way. Buffer, which is the social media. Publishing up they scaled through guest post in. That was if you read their kind of initial story of how they got some traction product market fit they wrote their founders wrote about one hundred, two, hundred, fifty guests posts. That's how initial traction and then they scaled through Google had a lot of content like a lot of BB companies haven't published her for the industry scour through content plus Seo
"Hey welcome to the podcast about politics race and culture from the OC perspective I'M A. And I'm Hutagalung arena. Today, we have a very special guest joining us from yonkers new. York is Jamal Bowman he's the. Democratic nominee for Congress in new. York's Sixteenth District Jamal. To the show. Hello thank you so much for having me. It's great to be here. We don't often speak to you know members, of Congress or potential members of Congress few like somebody maybe unexcited Cossio go. because. You're win like hers was a a really big deal. You defeated Longtime Democratic incumbent Eliot Engel in a huge landslide lead your the likely winner in the twenty twenty general election because you represent a very blue district. So it's really been a super big year for you. Your Primary Win came at the height of the conversation around justice for Black and Brown lives inequity the pandemic. With. It. So really your wind came kind of on the backs of all of that. So. Give us just a quick back story shore. So the back story I guess begins you know being raised by a single mom in the projects along with my three sisters. During the crack cocaine epidemic, which projects I gotTa know which projects Oh Easter projects one hundred, fifteen first avenue in Manhattan. WanNa raise on the. Upper East side East Harlem Section Manhattan went to public schools by entire life lived in the projects in rent stabilized apartments started teaching in nineteen ninety nine in the South Bronx in one of the poorest zip codes in the country, and you clearly can see the inequality the inequity in how wherever you go in a city state or country black and Brown people seem to be suffering more than everyone else. So growing up as a black man in America who has been a victim of police brutality. The first time I was beaten by police was eleven years old and notice I said the first time happen again, the a later on. IOS Eleven hanging out on the street with my friends and being rambunctious in boisterous in doing what kids do and I guess someone may have called the police because we were maybe too noisy a too rambunctious. and. The police came over and tried to live saw curtail us and tell us a comma down. You know we kind of push back in had a few words for them. Next thing I know like I'm being done up against the wall thrones Grou- face dragged all over the floor. In the back you know except Tra, and then we'll take into the precinct and US well to my mom about this later were taken to the precinct in a coma mom to come pick me up with a birth certificate because they didn't believe I was eleven am. makes. Me Think Tamir Rice as I say that out loud rain. She comes with a birth certificate picks me up and takes me home. Didn't explain to her what the charges were if any why they approached us to begin with, they just allow her to take me home in my mom and I didn't even think to you know press charges. Report anything like that. We just kept moving and it just tells you how internalize sort of our oppression is. Right like we just accept we have accepted in I have accepted that okay. There's nothing we can do where powerless. So becoming a teacher. Being a social justice advocate within education and having the opportunity to be a founding principle of my own district, public school charter school, and being education organizers around equity and restorative justice in culture, Responsi-, schools all of that led to me. You know think about a potential run for office and why Eliot Engel while I looked at twenty eighteen election and I saw that me thirty thousand registered Democrats in the district actually voted and he won with twenty two thousand votes. Yeah. Some like, wow. This person has making trillion dollar decisions that impact millions of people and he only got twenty two thousand. Volts Yep you look at who supports him right? Who Funds his campaign we're talking big real estate. Yep Big pharmaceutical companies, weapons, manufacturers, hedge fund managers, and every institution that is hurting our community hurting the working class. Those are the people that are institutions that funded his campaign. So that's why we decide the challenge chairman ultimately were able to win in the end
Markey fends off Kennedy in Massachusetts Senate primary that divided Democrats
"Joe Kennedy. The third loses Democratic Primary Challenge of Massachusetts Senator Edward Markey. By Steve Leblanc for the Associated Press in Boston. US, Senator Edward Markey of Massachusetts defeated. US Representative Joe Kennedy. The third in Tuesday's hard-fought Democratic primary harnessing support from progressive leaders to overcome a challenge from a younger rival. WHO's a member of America's most famous political family. It was the first time. A Kennedy has lost a race for Congress in Massachusetts Marquis. Appeal to voters in the deeply democratic state by positioning himself as aligned with the liberal wing of the party he teamed up with a leading Progressive New York representative Alexandria Cossio. Cortez on the green new deal climate change initiative, and at one point labeled Kennedy quote a progressive in name only that helped Marquis overcome the enduring power of the Kennedy name in Massachusetts. The thirty nine year old congressman sought to cast the seventy four year old marquis as someone out of touch after spending decades in Congress I in the House before moving to the Senate Kennedy said Tuesday night that the results aren't the ones he'd hoped for but pledged to work for Markey's reelection. The senator is a good man. You never heard me say, otherwise Kennedy told supporters at an outdoor rally. Kennedy also suggested that the movement of supporters the campaign pulled together would continue past the current election. We may have lost the final vote count tonight but we built a coalition that will endure. He said I would do this again with all of you in a heartbeat. In, the waning weeks of the campaign Kennedy leaned into his family's long political legacy in Massachusetts his pedigree includes former president John F. Kennedy, former US senator, and US Attorney General Robert F Kennedy, his grandfather, and former US senator Edward Kennedy who held a Senate seat in Massachusetts for nearly half a century until his death in two thousand, nine Marquis countered by leaning into. His own family story growing up in the working class city of Maldon with a father who drove a truck for the Hood Milk Company in one campaign video marquis also paraphrased a famous JFK quote saying we asked what we could do for our country we went out we did it with all due respect. It's time to start asking what your country can do for you. Marquis also found himself on the defensive at times during the campaign with Kennedy. Repeatedly trying to portray him as having a tin ear to Racial Equity Concerns Kennedy Faulted Marquis for his initial opposition to the effort to desegregate the Boston public schools beginning in the nineteen seventies marquis countered by noting that he changed his views on the contentious issue that tour at the fabric of the city he also said, he supported the creation in one thousand. Nine hundred seventy, three of a state Senate seat aimed at helping elect a black senator to the Massachusetts Legislature Kennedy also repeatedly pointed to the father of Dan Roy Dj Henry a young black man from Massachusetts killed by police ten years ago. Henry's father has criticized Marquis saying he failed to help the family seek justice markey said he has apologized to the Henry family and signed a letter seeking a Federal Justice Department investigation into the killing. Marquee also wasn't shy about talking about the Kennedy. Family at one point pressing Kennedy to tell his father former U s representative, Joe Kennedy. The second to stop supporting a Political Action Committee that was running ads against Marquis I'm sure your father is watching right now markey said tell your father right now the you don't want money to go into a super PAC that runs negative ads Kennedy said he had no idea if his father was helping fund the pack late in the race Kennedy also. Landed a major endorsement when Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi formerly backed his candidacy while Marquis who served with Pelosi in the house for decades congratulated Kennedy Pelosi's decision angered some of Markey's younger Progressive Supporters Marquee had earlier won the endorsement of Ocasio Cortez and fellow Massachusetts Democratic US senator. Elizabeth. Warren Ed. Markey wasn't afraid. He offered his expertise and partnership. He wasn't scared of big policy and didn't use kid gloves. It's great to watch him overcome the odds and wind tonight Oh Cossio Cortez tweeted Tuesday night. The Corona virus ended the way both candidates could reach out to voters severely limiting more traditional means of electioneering like knocking on doors, shaking hands or. Big rallies instead, the campaigns were largely waged on line with virtual rallies, virtual endorsements, virtual fundraisers, and virtual roundtable events to discuss issues. Eventually, as Massachusetts began to suppress the virus and emerge from a near lockdown, the candidates began to take their campaigns on the road with appropriate social distancing rules and face masks in tow. The showdown drew criticism from some Democrats nationally who feared it would siphon time and money away from the primary goals of defeating President, Donald Trump and winning back control of the Senate. It also wasn't cheap with both Kennedy and Markey raising millions to pay for campaign staff television, and digital ads and old school campaign flyers. Marking now faces a general election contest where he's considered a strong favourite in a district that has historically elected Democrats hill face the winner of the Republican Primary Kevin O'Connor in November.
A Kennedy is on the ballot in Massachusetts. Here's why he's not guaranteed a victory.
"And out front up next we're. Just. From one of the most closely watched primaries this year a young Kennedy on the ballot in Massachusetts but can he unseat a seventy four year old incumbent? Because it's about ideas I am the youngest guy. In. This race. Tonight and the fight for twenty twenty a usual dynamic emerging Massachusetts ahead of tomorrow's Democratic Senate primary. The incumbent in his seventies was support from progressives, his challenger young and Kennedy Manu. Raju is out front. The Hiroshima Political Dynasty the grandson of the leap Robert F Kennedy campaigning to serve in the Senate like his famous great uncles and grandfather before him the. Certainly. I think you're doing great job. Hello. The candidate he's right there. For Life Magazine. Thirty nine year old Joe. Kennedy is facing something unexpected. Seventy four year old senator who has been in Congress for almost forty four years. Has Managed to galvanize support of young voters. Ahead of Tuesday's Massachusetts Senate primary I think that a lot of young people that are our age at least. From from our town have been similarly really inspired by Ed Markey polls show Senator Ed Markey as the favourite threatening to make the four term. The first Kennedy to lose a race in Massachusetts unlike other primaries this year were democratic incumbents have been ousted by liberal newcomers. Marquis has managed to turn that dynamic on its head because it's about ideas. I am the youngest guy. In this race Alexandria, it's been murky seizing the mantle of the insurgent, touting his support of liberal causes at the green new deal and endorsement of the progressive firebrand. Alexandria Cossio Cortes such the green new deal that I introduced Alexandria Cossio. Healthcare justice is on the ballot. That's Medicare for all that I next the Bernie. Sanders. When he introduced it yet, it's been Kennedy with the badging of the party establishment leader Speaker Nancy Pelosi Allies have been frustrated that marquee has not been held to account for full record over four decades like his backing of the Iraq war in two thousand and two the NAFTA deal in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, three, his position on racial issues like school desegregation dating back to the nineteen seventies progressive willing to look those hurdles that's up to a progressive movement. Out. I think an awful lot of folks in many parts of Massachusetts have a different view of that records and what that means to our communities after going door to door in working class Boston neighbors weekend. Kennedy. Accused Marquis of abandoning the state. He's been less time in the state than anybody else delegation in an interview with CNN Marquis fired back there is. No real record of Congressman Kennedy in his eight years leading on issues of of generational change in Washington Kennedy has waited until late in the campaign to stress that it's his family I. Guess It's a fighting. His blood wants to continue in the Senate tried to be really clear that it's GonNa Balance It's not my father, my grandfather brothers or anybody else and. You vote for me you're going to get now Kennedy does pull off an upset on Tuesday night it could be thanks in part to the fact that he is allies have spent more on television advertising than Markey and his allies roughly two million dollars more. But if he loses what Kennedy will do next still an open question we posed that question to him he didn't want to entertain it and said, he looks forward to running through the finish line and celebrating on Tuesday night.

Gun Violence Spikes in NYC, Intensifying Debate Over Policing
"A New York. City has experienced a surge in violent crime in recent weeks, including a two hundred percent increase in shootings between June, fifteenth and July second of this year, a compared the same time in two thousand and nineteen over the July fourth holiday weekend, sixty four people were shot. Eleven died when we're gunshot wounds and the last four weeks New York. City has seen an increase in shootings. Compared to last year, there was one especially. especially heartbreaking shooting on video of a father gunned down in broad daylight while walking hand in hand the six year old daughter, the Bronx, but it isn't just gun violence troubling the big apple in the past two weeks, there was a grisly knife attack in the subway and a stabbing in Brooklyn, following the George Floyd protest against police brutality. You were police department disbanded. It's plain clothes unit, which has been involved in a disproportionate number of fatal officer involved shootings last week at NYPD captured a video, mocking the new overly cautious policing tactics being implemented in New York City a following the nationwide protests against police brutality in. In early June New York City Mayor Bill Blogs, you announced. He's moving resources from the NYPD to youth and social services as part of our city's budget. Mayor de Blasio proposes cutting nearly one billion dollars, and then PD are presentative. Alexandria Cossio Cortez scoffed at the proposal calling it a disingenuous illusion thing. defunding police means defunding police on Thursday during virtual townhall because you cortes talked about the uptick crime in new. York City, pointing out constant new NYPD hasn't happened yet, and there's still an increase in crime, a proposed theories for the crimewave and asked do we think has to do with the fact that there's record unemployment. Unemployment, in the United States right now as she continue the fact that people are at a level of economic desperation, we have not seen since the great recession and the Democratic Socialists hypothesize the increase in York City. Violence could stem from Renton demands and people shoplifting bread. Maybe this has to do with the fact that people aren't paying their rent and are scared to pay the rent. She said, and so they go out, and they need to feed their child, and they don't have money, so you maybe have to. They're putting the position. They feel like they either need to shoplift some bread or go hungry that nights. Okay so let's break this down Carrie. Did she offer any information? Suggesting the shoplifting of bread is on the rise. No no, she did not. Offer any information or proof that people are being evicted McCain pay their rent now. Okay so I've got Dr Carson on today. He the Hudsucker secretary as you know, and he's the one who talks about foreclosures and Ranson evictions and stuff like that, and of course as you know because you're a smart news person of fifty, some odd years old. You know that there had been abatements for people paying rent or getting addicted or getting foreclosed on right. They literally can't be evicted, or it'd be foreclosed on under the rules. Put Out by Hud Housing Urban Development. Run by Secretary Ben. Carson, so we don't have any proof because it isn't happening. People are being shot and killed in the streets of New York. It's. It's not over buying bread or not for stealing bread, but there's no proof of anybody shoplifting more bread in new. York, so that's unverified and probably untrue, and there's certainly no proof of people being evicted or being foreclosed on because there are rules in place protecting people right now, but I guess the broader question along with why the beep is this person in Congress? Has To be wife. She saying it. Because it's also ally that there has been no defunding or disbanding a police in new. York 'cause you just said if the the crime unit has been disbanded. The Crime Unit that actually was on top of the most violent crimes, and stopping is no longer there, therefore the violent criminals who are not stealing bread. Are Out there, killing each other and killing innocent people, so your thoughts on this. Would you hear this this dolt this? Dope. AFC saying such stupid things what goes through your mind

How B.C.'s Indigenous communities are facing climate change, and creating solutions
"The signs of climate change are everywhere. Lighter snowpacks others rising water levels and the conversations around climate are shifting just two years ago the phrase. The green new deal was just a bullet point in political platform since then it's expanded into a worldwide phenomenon and a solution. Some feel will slow down. The human caused portion of climate change. Jillian brave noise cat is been there. Every step of the way he worked with elected officials to help draft the green new deal resolution. Julian is a member of the Canam Lake Ban to cast skin in British Columbia. Hi Julian welcome back to the show. Thanks so much for having me so first of all. What is the green new deal so the green new deal began as a resolution introduced by representative Alexandria costs? He'll Cortez of New York and Senator Ed Markey of Massachusetts. It's a resolution with big ambitions to take on the dual crises of inequality and climate change but the discourse here because America's media market political scene often spills over into Canada and Europe and elsewhere has also been picked up by sort of more left leaning forces in other countries so the New Democratic Party. The Social Democratic Party in in Canada picked up the green new deal as part of their platform and has been talking about it in the Canadian context as well and use climate activists who are also sort of affiliated with the left wing and Canada have also been talking about potentially a a green new deal for Canada. What the green new deal is in. That is big jobs infrastructure investment. Sort of package so your listeners might be familiar with sort of carbon price and tax approach. That has been led by the liberal government in Canada and the distinction between that approach and the green new deal is that rather than sort of forcing consumers and businesses to have a off where they have to pay higher prices for gasoline. And things like that to sort of benefit the environment and to lower emissions. The green new deal says that we should invest in decarbonising a whole set of industries and sectors in a way that will create jobs and promote a more fair and equitable economy. Why is this important for indigenous people in Canada so I think that first nations and indigenous people in both the United States and Canada have played an outsized role in the fight for environmental justice over the last ten twenty years? Maybe even further back. If you look at the history of resistance to pipelines and Forestry and mining you know first nations have often been some of the loudest voices you know. Putting their very bodies on the line in front of pipelines and projects. That are going to damage the environment and public health. So I I would say that. A lot of the grassroots energy of the green new deal comes from first nations for example representative Alexandria. Cossio Cortez the politician who led the charge for green new deal here in the United States actually got started as a volunteer organizer. Supporting the move. Minute Standing Rock So I would say that. The indigenous movement both in the United States and Canada really has played a significant underlying role. That people haven't fully appreciated in producing the green new deal. I think the questions that first nations sovereignty and rights raise for the green new deal or not just the fact that communities are disproportionately harmed and polluted by the fossil fuel industry in particular and other extractive industries more generally but also you know what it might look like to in both the federal systems of Canada and the United States to incorporate first nations governments as equal partners in the federal system. That is that is pushing for action on climate change. What would it look like for first nations governments in in Canada and the United States to lead a transition to clean energy to create a lot of the jobs in their communities to be empowered as environmental stewards in protectors? And I think the examples that we should be looking to are things. Like the Guardian Watchmen program in the great bear rainforest. Other parts of Canada where first nations twenty thirty years ago stood up against logging and forestry and now today employ some of their own members as environmental stewards and protectors making sure that some of the most important carbon sinks in North America remain protected and can help us in the fight against climate change. So I think it's those kinds of things that we should be thinking about and then abroad or sort of intellectual and philosophical sense. I think that climate change really is an existential threat for humans and human societies around the world and of course you know first nations you know what it means to live. Through an apocalypse we lived through the apocalypse of of colonization. We lived through the apocalypse of our children being taken away to residential schools Canada and boarding schools in the United States and in a broader sense of human sort of confronting this enormous tragic upheaval to our societies. I think that you know indigenous people in Canada and and more generally actually have perspectives and experiences to lend to those set of
But Why Live: Poetry
"Oscar is ten and lives in Bethlehem Pennsylvania and he told us he wrote this poem for Mother's Day bike rides with Mama another scrape. My knees keep donating bloody skin to the sidewalk. Here comes Mama keeping a straight face even though I know she must be laughing inside because it's not the first time I ride my bike into a fire hydrant since we took off the training wheels. I've been living on the edge the edge of sidewalk the edge of Aggressee Hill. The Japan nerves no longer our arms on my shoulder while I ride but she is always there. I remember clapping when I wrote up to the mailbox. You're doing it. She cheered. That was three years ago now. Whenever WE GONE by Christ's we travel miles. It's our thing on narrow streets. She leads the way otherwise. We're side by side even uphill in those. She's not holding my shoulders like she did when I was seven. I know I will always have balanced because of her. That's what a mother does to ride my bike with Mama to tell her without words that I love her Oscar. I love that poem. I Bet your mother was so so happy to get it. Here's a poem from Cassia. Who's seven and lives in Chatham on Tour Ontario? Her poem is called name is waterfall. I walk slowly down the rocks. My eyes are big whitish blue. I carry a bubble of water by breath salty. My touches software misty. I moved fast and sneaky voices. Smooth soft common scratchy. Right name is my name is waterfall casio. That is so beautiful all right. Let's get into more poems. We have more of you who are calling in to read some poems on air and some of you may have questions about poems and poetry that you'd like to share with us as well and I want to bring in our guide for the our Ted. Shy Ted is known as the poetry guy around here in Vermont and beyond. He's been teaching poetry. Two Kids for more than twenty years and some of you listening might have been about to have a school event with Ted shy before your classes got canceled so lucky us. He's with us today. Ted I Jane. I'm so excited to talk poetry with you. Even more thrilled than you. This is such a cool honor to be on your awesome show. Oh thank you thank you but I'm going to start with a really tough question for you. Although I think it's one you've probably answered many many times. So Ted when we think about poems some poems rhyme some poems. Don't some have a few words and then skip to the next line. Some have lines that run together. Some poems are designed to be read on the page others are designed to be spoken and heard a loud some poems follow rules about form and structure. Once you know the rules. Some poems still break them. Some poems are very very short but some like the epic poetry of homer are as long as a chapter book and have characters and plot like a novel would so ted. What is poetry? That's a hard question and you listed so many different ways because that's what homes are. There are lots of different things to me. A poem is a small mostly small. It's focused it's laser focused on one important thing in your life. Something you feel really strongly about and it's sort of like if if kids live in the northeast and especially in Vermont. They know that Maple Syrup for example is something we do here. We make here. And when you make Maple Syrup you take lots and lots of Sap from the maple tree and you have to boil it down and it takes forty drops of maple sap to make one delicious drop of Maple Syrup that dances on your tongue. And it's kind of a process that everybody has to take this long mostly long process of sort of distilling boiling down your thoughts until it becomes a really important night and idea and it doesn't have to take any particular shape. That's the cool thing about poems. A rules are super flexible. So but so if a poem can be anything if you're writing one. Oh that's a good question. Well it's sort of an open thing you. There's so many different shapes and sizes of poems but it is something that you know in your heart. You've written something. Like Oscar was writing about such detail and living I love the way he described living on the edge and Cossio filled with details about her voice and their breath is and it's looking at things really really carefully and so did I answer your question. Not really because there isn't there isn't really an answer. Poems take so many different forms but they're not stories there even though Oscar kind of told story. It's it's really just a focus little expression of something super important so those epic poems and epic poets like homer and you know the the Odyssey and the Iliad are those really kind of different than what we consider modern poems. I think so. I have a hard time There aren't too many poets that long stuff these days and back when they wrote those they didn't even write them down. Had people who memorize like and they would share it for many many days. Twenty four seven without stopping so that was kind of an unusual story type of poem and epic Narrative Poem. And fortunately there aren't. Most people writes shorter stuff and I certainly do myself. I'm kids. Maybe that's a good assignment for you. See if you can just recite a poem. Twenty four seven. See what you think about that. Maybe maybe you can tell them that. Ted Shy told you you should do it. Let's get to some poems. That kids are sending us and we have lots of kids calling in Ted who WanNa read their poems allowed and this is so exciting because I love it when are able to read their own poems but we got a found poem that was sent to us by the common dish town elementary sixth grade class they actually wrote this palm on zoom. They're having video conference meetings and they focused on things to do outside so each student put a line in the chat box in their video conference and hit send at the very same time and this is the poem that resulted watching the birds. That land on my feet feeder going hiking riding my bike bright orange caterpillar under the leaves. I breathe in air running down the sidewalk as fast as I can smelling the bright tulips growing. Love it outside. That's pretty good for palm that everybody hit send on at the same time. Don't you all say the ending? The last line is the perfect line for that yeah. Nothing's no kidding. Thank you for that. Kevin dish sixth-graders.

So much to talk with Michael heart heart from the heart of America show her all over, and he's also the author of this book unknown America where you can read about all kinds of things. Oh, it's women's history. But he's got something this for everything everybody, we thought this book for loves that Michael. So we're waiting for the follow up and the follow up after that. We know there's all kinds of great political stuff to write about. Hey, let's continue with some of the political headlines Bernie Sanders as you reported has a curious new staffer twice arrested illegal is now his press secretary. Is that what I'm seeing here? She is his press secretary and assistant spokeswoman and supposedly. Yes. Yes. Klay in that. She is illegal, although her parents are able to vote she is not. So I don't know if this is just Sanders grandstanding perhaps trying to cover for his wife's financial foibles or not. But it is very curious. And the funny thing about it is is that the girl wasn't even. She was a Sanders. I won't say act white she supported in the first time around but was unable to vote for him. But she encouraged everybody else to vote for Hillary Clinton. But now she's got on the old white bandwagon and associates out there stopping for Bernie Sanders while I guess trying to avoid ice at the same time. I point is at the same time that it's so strange because you do have Bernie Sanders. He's an old white, man. I thought they were so out of right now. Well, apparently they're coming back in because they were having a Jeter Joe Biden. And I think, you know, I think Biden so frustrated I think to a degree Sanders. Despite you got to bear in mind during the last election, how hard to the left is he all of a sudden work two years later. We got Bernie Sanders for all intents and purposes in the middle that doesn't scare people the death. I don't know. What does? But then you start adding to the to the whole, you know, a stone or vote for me. I hate hamburger so vote for me, Mark Krikorian? Calm right. Oh god. It's unbelievable. So, you know, but either Bernie Sanders are Joe Biden, they're both of them for this matter think they have to enter the race to save America from their own party. Wow. We got a bad case of going on. Don't you wish you could be in on some of the back and forth emails or messages between the Democratic Party people and the people trying to keep it in line. And I just if there weren't so much writing on it, you could just sit back, and it's the best entertainment ever. What's going to happen in two thousand twenty with all these democratic contenders? And then whoever rises to the top and goes against Trump. It's going to be the best entertainment we've ever seen. So speaking of of the new the new socialist pushed oh so far further than Bernie. We have Andrea Cossio Cortes, and she's now making list. I mean, I don't know if he's heard of the McCarthy are maybe not, but she's making list, and she's saying you Democrats, you moderate Democrats, if you go anywhere along the lines with these moderate Republicans, you're going on a west, and we're going to do nothing short of working hard to get you out of office. I mean, she just she really is she she really is sort of amazed with herself, I think. Oh, you know, she she actually is. I mean, I don't know what the if you look at every single pitch of vocation Cortes you look at. It reminds me of this girl, the friend that I had in high school. Jumped 'cause she was crazy. You don't. She was crazy. She because she's a crazy girl. She hides in the bushes because he's gonna cut by tires the next morning Cortes has that look on her face all the time. I don't know who she thinks. She is. But at the end of the day, the reality of it is ego is bigger than BB Rex's backside. And I do not know life of me understand who she thinks. She is. And I think she's really getting under the fingernails Nancy Pelosi in that class. Yeah. And Feinstein had to rise up and say, I mean, those these little schoolgirls arrived at outside Diane Feinstein's office and said we want this. And they said, listen, I've been in politics a long time. I might know a little better than your green deal people. I mean, a people taking this green deal seriously. And if we're going to die in twelve years because the earth is just going to be it's just gonna be this rated by us. And why do we care? Well, we shouldn't. And I think a lot of the. The Democrats out there that have an IQ higher than a toaster oven. I think they realize that this is a non implementable program. I really think that they probably think you're Cortez will not get reelected anyway, her basis for basis what it is. And you know, they were very motivated the first time around, but in reality of it is is the green new deal is it's not implementable. It's an absolute financial disaster. It destroys, you know, three or four of the centerpoint industries in this nation for manufacturing automobiles to air travel to farming agriculture you name it and this country is built on you know, we were in the and society for many many many years for decades for centuries. Even you can't undermined. I mean, how are we gonna feed Americans? You know, how are we going to transport people? You can't undermine the entire economic system. So she has this high falutin mindset, but the scary thing to me is is you've got a sitting president. That's embattled with the testimony of Michael Carlin, and you've got alexan-. Andrea case you Cortes and Rashida to lead actually doing some of the costs examining of Michael Cohen, whereas you know, three or four months ago, she swinging one of them's taking my eyes in a dive. And the other one's running around a mosque trying to find out which is open on Sunday. So I don't have any idea. What these people are thinking. This is your house oversight committee, ladies and gentlemen, eastbound at least three days some behind closed doors, some OSA breathlessly I announced on TV Michael Cullen giving testimony man that was sworn to be, you know, this lawyer attorney client privilege with with President Trump. And he's he's already been busted for lying so much that the Democrats have back, but it's kind of funny. I'm just kind of glancing at various a Cossio Cortes God lever. The James crazy is crazy is look at him. I mean Cossio Cortes, James woods, the actor. He's he's conservative. Not everyone knows that he's a conservative, and he's very well.

"Eight five eight hundred nine to three WD gay. And when you stop to think about the the level of continuous savaging that this president takes in the mainstream media, it's amazing to take a look at these kinds of poll results with regard to the state of the union address coming in and expressed by those on a cable network that spends most of its time vilifying the chief executive Andrea Cossio Cortes responded to what she heard. I think that the president was unprepared. I don't think. He did his homework. We've seen state of the union addresses delivered delivered by many presidents, democrat and Republican almost always substances policies that are offering. I agree with Senator sure there there was no plans. There was no plan to address our opioid crisis. There was no plan to address the cost of healthcare. There was no plan to increase wages. It was. I had to ask myself is this a campaign stop or is this a state of the union the opioid crisis? If you will recall was addressed rather handily by the president of the United States during the last state of the union address. And after the state of the union address, the president had a couple of special meetings at the White House and made nationally publicized comments on a very detailed strategy to deal with the opioid cross crisis. Where has Andrea oh, Cossio Cortez, Ben? And when it comes to policies made by this administration. There was one policy style that the president decried, and he talked about it, particularly in relationship to a new crop of people coming in to the congress who seemed to fit the profile of those who favor socialism, like Andrea, Alexandria, ocasio gore Dez here in the United States. We are alarmed by the. The new calls to adopt socialism in our country. America was founded on liberty and independence and not government coercion, domination and control. We are born free. Tonight, we renew our resolve that America will never be a socialist country..

"So a Cossio Cortez. The headline became ocasio Cortez gives zero bleeps about fellow Democrats right in some version of that was written dozens of times by a bunch of just plain old regular news outlets, including a bunch that want to suck up to her. Well. Zero credit has been tweeted it out using the hill as the example. And she said, I actually didn't say this. So while I know Brown women, cursing, drives clicks, maybe you accurately, quote, the whole exchange instead of manipulating people into thinking. I said this sentence instead of just the word zero what? Kobe literally asked you how many bleeps you Gavin. You said zero with the headlines are true Akhazia Cortes said. Well, that wasn't specifically my quote, and the only reason you're doing this is because I'm Brown. People. And this is the kind of thing though to her supporters. They eat this up. They do this is when you start throwing down. Yes. Queens. Yeah. They wanted they want. They want their version of Donald Trump. That's what they want. And they may get it in her listen to this new axios survey monkey poll, they asked Democrats and people who lean democrat if they would consider voting for her. She were old enough to run for president seventy four percent of them said they would seventy four percent. So well, we sit here and yuck. It up at her. Seventy four percent of Democrats in those Helene Democrats said they would consider voting for her. If we're not if people aren't careful if democrat Republicans aren't careful they're gonna find themselves in the same position Democrats found themselves in two thousand six there's a lesson in all of this which is that when there are people who support somebody like an Alexandria Cossio Cortez. You really should see whether or not it's it's it's it's it's more than skin deep. If there's something about her that calls to them if there's some problem in their life. They're actually seeking to address because that's what America is rife with some real problems that need to be fixed. It's the whole reason Trump got elected in the first place and the question comes down to a number of people crossing over from Bernie to Trump. How does that happen? How does it happen that you have Bernie supporters to say, you know, what? Now that Bernie's out on voting for Trump. How does that happen? What happens when you have a country where suicide rates are going up among men. The opioid crisis continues people feel like that there's treading water wages are stagnant. Since the seventies. You see that there is that the elites are getting by. In a much more successful way than they ever. Have that cronyism reigned supreme the corruption? Reigns. Supreme I mean, eventually Americans are going to say we need a change we need to fix this. So what change do they go for is it Trump or is it a Cossio Cortez? You need to be if you're if you support either of those people you need to be front and center making the case in an open minded way. Why your way is better? Rather than just condemning people to damnation because you disagree with them right now, politically, you could address their problems. Now, she will obviously will not be running against President Trump's short. I don't think she's she'll be old enough yet. She's thirty five twenty nine. So she won't be able to run against President Trump, maybe in his fourth term. But. But she could take on a quote unquote, traditional Republican and win not too far down the road. And I think people need to we laugh at her, but you might want to pay attention to a lot to watch though with her. We got some time the constitution's got some roles on this thing.

"One zero three five FM. Alexandria, Cossio Cortez. This was. This was yesterday at a Martin Luther King forum in in New York City, where she was making these comments and also being interviewed here, we have it in just a moment this to Nishi coats, and we'll play you some more audio and we'll get to your phone call. I here just a second. What I love about this. And that we just played this is this is genuine, right? So this is this is Alex Andrea Cossio Cortez in front of a crowd, and this is her being genuine and just putting it out there. It tells you how limited she is in her knowledge of what it is. She's she's talking about. I mean, it really it for a in my opinion tells you everything you need to know about her. She just doesn't she just doesn't it doesn't have affirm affirm grasp right? She's basically absorbed a lot of this a lot of these different ideas. And and and and thoughts about what Democrats should be and socialism. And there's a great moment in the in the. The movie forgetting, Sarah Marshall, Russell brand the comedian is in that movie and Kirsten bells is his girlfriend is a point when they get into a fight and he's got a bunch of tattoos on his body. And she starts mocking him going all these debt Jews these religious tattoos. These are all conflicting ideologies. It doesn't mean that you're this global person. It just means that you're full of blank. You know? That's what she is. She's just she's this progressive, right, regurgitate, or of ideas and understand it. That's exactly what I was gonna say the ability to regurgitate talking points and narratives that you've heard from other people doesn't make you smart, right? It doesn't make you a leader. You don't understand these issues that you're talking about? That's what makes you smart is the ability to hear these things process them research them understand them and reach rational conclusions. She is completely irrational. She has heard the worst case scenario of every possible situation. And she feels this great need now that she has been elevated to this platform of being one of four hundred and thirty five representatives in the house of representatives. It's just one voice out of many. But she's been elevated by the daily shows by the coal bears by progressive leadership. She's been put on this pedestal. And now, she's. Feels like she has to be the champion of the earth. Right. She doesn't know what she's talking. She has no idea what she's talking about. I'm sorry. Like, she doesn't know what she's talking about regurgitating gibberish. She's a walking word cloud. Patty in forest lake. Good morning. Good morning gentleman.

"Cossio Cortez's is was planted. And and for this position that she's in now and that she's not the only one because of her background with it. As degrees like she has going back to waitressing and bartending was just to be one of the people. So she could relate. I've she's charismatic. She has the attraction. Draws people to her, but she had to be one of them in order to get the vote in order to sell it. And look I mean, she she grew up. Very comfortable. I guess your parents were your basic middle class, folks. But she sold herself all during the campaign is just, you know, a working gallon works as bartender yada, yada. It's ludicrous is JFK selling himself in the fashion. You had money your parents have money. You didn't do without? You didn't go to community college. You went to school very expensive school. Fortunately, I don't think she actually learned anything in here, econ classes, I think what she learned was under the tutelage had Kennedy when she works in his office. Yeah. Yeah. And that is that philosophy. And of course, the other thing that's inherent in that is we're gonna take a lot more money from everybody else except me. I mean, that's the Kennedy way is we're going to we're going to set up our tax rates that affect everybody except me. This is the same as they have when they say, we think that it's a really good idea to have windmills on the ocean except anywhere near me. And that's that is the Kennedy way, thanks for your call. Sharon, sure fishing. On four one zero WCBS six eighty two seven and Mike Mike it's Bruce elite show. Thank you so much for hanging on and thanks for calling. Hey, thanks for taking the call. Bruce warning. Warning. I was listening to what you're saying about marginal rates, and I I don't have a problem with higher rates for. Some sectors of the economy specifically Wall Street, they tended benefit when things don't go. Well, when they do go. Well, they make out go back to what happened during the bailout. Everybody has bad feelings about you know, how that went down AIG Bear, Stearns Lehman all those guys got money. Meet the tax payers. Socialize Wall Street, and then you can make the case that like businesses like that steel where you know, the pension system broke down more paying for that. That broken patients system. Executives got paid millions of dollars over the years. There was no quarterback for that. So at what point do you say a hedge fund manager who's making? Billion dollars a year. And literally there are henchmen hedge fund managers in an annual basis that are making billion billion five hundred million dollars a year. And they're paying a marginal rate only twenty four percent. All right. So so why is that your seems to me that you're okay with them writing the rules in writing the tax code, okay? No, no, no. I'm not for me. It's very straightforward. Everybody has skin in the game. That's rule. Number one rule. Number two is everybody pays the same tax rate? That's it you feel your taxes out and run a minute and a half. And there are a number of versions of this around there. And that means they would never let you get away with that. Who is then I'm talking about the guys who right off Gulfstream jets wants to write off Chris meals every day before they even pay a dollar attacks. Hold on just so, you know, there are limits that are built into the tax code is whether or not they can write off a roof Christmas. Meal, and there are specific qualifications on their on their Gulfstream. I would do away with all of that stuff. I would make it real simple. Mike and Severn makes sixty thousand dollars a year. We have a flat tax rate of pick a number fourteen point three percent, ultra calculator. Multiply sixty thousand dollars a year times point one four three. That's how much you owe. We're done here every every person should be treated equally under the law. And when you say, you're okay with some people being treated equally and some others not being treated equally. I don't want the government making the decision as to who's income. They approve of and whose income they don't approve of. I don't want to give him that power. I don't think we are. We all are being treated equally right now. If you look at how marginal tax rates were it has nothing to do with the individual with income. So if I make learning fifteen thousand dollars a year and hedge fund manager makes a team thousand dollars a year. The same rate on I fifteen thousand which argument is that this should not be changing the income rates as you go up. Mike. It's it's I simple you believe in what they call a progressive tax rate. I don't we just disagree on this. And that's fine. I just ask you to be open to the logic is hard to argue net- net-, if you take a look at the total tax Bill that those two individuals by paying in essence different tax rates that there be treated equally under the law. They're not I think. Theory. It sounds extremely fair at easy, and I like the idea of index card. But you, and I both know if you try to mess with those new poll your thing is going to blow up in your face. No. I don't know that hold on. You're making a sumptuous in evidence here. No, I don't know that. And I think that this president has done his best on moving toward a much flatter tax rate. I think that we have to keep going in that direction. Mark, listen, Mike. Thanks for your call. I gotta take some more. Right. Appreciate it for one zero WCBS eighty two Tim in port deposit. Ten. Good morning. Brother, just hanging on. How you doing?

"A wall and the president is going to be successful. And I don't even say that with any relish because look at the people who are emerging that Democrats are enamored with again, Alexandria, Cossio Cortez. Being morally right is more important than being factually. Correct facts don't matter. Wow. The governor of California wants to tax drinking water. The mayor of New York says there's lots of money in the world is just in the wrong hands. As as Trump. Continues to triumph with a great economy and criminal Justice reform and focus on the border and all the policy achievements. We've witnessed in the last two years. The Democrats freakout means they only go farther to the left. I mean, they love this young woman who was a bartender last year in New York, they love her. She's the future. Well, behold, the future here she was last week on MSNBC talk, excuse me. This was CBS is sixty minutes. That's a huge platform much bigger than MSNBC or Fox News. The broadcast networks generally have a much much bigger audience, sixty minutes. One of the most highly sample, you know, news TV news programs of our lifetime. Here's Alexandria, a Cossio Cortes, just a Pearl of wisdom from this young woman who was elected congresswoman from New York. One of the criticisms of you is that your math is fuzzy Washington Post recently awarded you or Pinocchio misstating some statistics about Pentagon spending. If people want to really blow up one figure here or one word there. I would argue that they're missing the forest for the trees, I think that there's a lot of people more concerned about being precisely factually and semantically correct in about being morally right people want. Pick about a fact here or a fact that you're missing the forest for the trees, I mean, I don't like to disparage people, and I say, you should take her seriously because he's dangerous, but she's also a big dummy. She was a bartender nothing against bartenders. But that's what she's apparently good at legislating is going to be real interesting. Even Anderson Cooper is looking at.

"Andrea Cossio Cortes completely unhinged last night. Night lying talking about Obama's policy pretending that Trump, it was Trump's policy, but I do want to ask you one last question that people who are watching and listening want the answer to do you have a feeling for win. This is going to end for when this partial shutdown it again, no checks have been withheld jet would start Friday. What is it look like I mean, I is this is today that said he walked away they walked away. We've gotta wait be, you know, the administration for swells doing everything they can administratively to re- to provide relief to those impacted by the shutdown. So for example, food stamps will continue to February we're gonna make sure tax refunds are- are delivered. So we're doing what we can on our part. Now, it's up to the Democrats the ball is in their court. We they know exactly where we stand in our position. They're the ones that need to decide are they going to keep keep the government shutdown. They need to decide if they're gonna come back with a counter offer. Good assist. Just give us, you know, figure out where if you can even get somewhere, and you know, I think the. Democrats are getting nervous. I think they feel like the president's really made it very clear where he stands, and he's and he's willing to compromise. But he's not willing to say, let's just open up the government, and you know, business as usual because as we know today Nancy Pelosi made her case known she was exposed. She said, I am not. If we re presidents presents said, if we reopen the government will you negotiate in thirty days for port security. She said, no. So we know exactly what position they're out. And by the way, the American people need to be reminded that without a doubt, the reason why the government is partially closed is because Chuck Schumer and the Democrats would not say, yes. To the Bill that the house of representatives passed had they said, yes, there is no government shutdown. This is clearly on them. Absolutely. And I think they have to take responsibility for it. And it's entering the presence. Like, I'll take responsibility berry like, but at the end of the day, these these Democrats, it's it's they're the ones keeping the government shutdown. They're the ones that are not willing to come to table, negotiate. And they're willing to put politics above all else than to really solve this humanitarian national security crisis that we're seeing at the border, and as we know there's a growing surge of drugs, criminals and gang members coming through between the ports of entry. And that's where we need our wall. It's not that complicated. Commonsense. Mercedes, thanks a million. She's the White House to Richard strategic communications Mercedes slap.
