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
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

"cossio cortez" Discussed on KQED Radio
"Cossio Cortez and Senator Elizabeth Warren joined us for the annual New Yorker festival. It was for reasons you know only too well. A virtual festival. And with the 2020 election just weeks away, the state of American democracy was and is on everybody's mind. Here's Elizabeth Warren and Alexandria Cossio Cortez, speaking with Andrew Maran's of The New Yorker. I'm just going to get right to it. This isn't you know, a time for small talk. This is a pretty perilous moment in our history, so I think we should just start start right with it. We obviously have a health crisis and economic crisis as a result of that a reckoning over racial justice in this country. And on top of all that we have Ah, ah Democratic legitimacy crisis when we've come this far in terms of Breaking of norms and seeing all these abnormal signs that our democracy is in peril and that this administration seems tohave authoritarianism, pulses. How What are you looking for? As Maura red flags as we move toward this election. What are you looking for? In the coming weeks That will tell you that we have really crossed an irreversible line. And what can you both do as members of Congress to try to safeguard what we have left? Of our democracy. I guess Senator, we can start with you on this. Well, I I don't think it's about the red lines in the next 24 days. How long have we got now? We know that Donald Trump's gonna do every single thing possible to steal this election toe hang on to power to deny its legitimacy. There's not any surprise coming. In that sense. There may be particular details, but come on, we we know this man By now. He has told us who he is. So for me, it's about what are we doing about it and doing about it now and that is we got to get people out to vote. Our big chance. Here is November, 3rd. We can't afford to be Donald Trump. By a little bit. We got to beat Donald Trump by a huge amount, and that's how we reassert the strength of democracy. Alex. What do you think? Yeah, I completely agree. I'm not looking for any red flags because he's already thrown out 21 of the most extremely troubling things that the president has done and recently is really signaling that he will not Clearly committed to a peaceful transition of power. And so the thing that we have to do our first line of defense is absolutely toe overwhelmed at the poles and toe overwhelmed at the polls in every way possible toe overwhelming early voting early in person voting mail in voting and overwhelming on day of election results. Right. And so is there like a break glass in case of emergency plan if you start to see a state of emergency and called in a swing state and people getting shut out from polling places or some massive irregularity. What are you going to do? Do you go to the well of the Senate and have a sit in like, what is your plan? And also what is our plan as citizens? Do we show up somewhere in March? Do we start stockpiling food? Like what do we start doing? Well, I think one of the things that's extremely important is that we have to remember that in our democracy and yes, I'm going to use the word democracy. Contrary to Senator Mike Lee We? The people have power. We always have power, and I think it's extremely important that people be ready for mass civil demonstration. Nonviolent, of course, but we have to make sure that we have a demonstration on the scale of the women's march in 2017 even larger than that, or on the scale of Of everything that we saw this year. There need to be immediate political, popular and social consequences for leadership that refuses to adhere to the rule of law. And we've seen this administration scale back on very disturbing developments due to public backlash and due to ah, popular support or lack of or lack thereof, And so I do think it's still important for people to understand. That if Donald Trump refuses to acknowledge the results of this election on DH that we exercise our First Amendment rights and then for us is elected leaders has elected officials depending on those developments. There are there are provision in the Constitution and making sure that whether we address is in the house or that we also turnout for critical house seats that we win over state delegations. We make sure that we have all the pieces in play for every eventuality. Let's say Joe Biden gets in cleanly peacefully. Let's say Democrats take the house. Fine Administration, Democratic House and a Democratic Senate. Right. So that's that's the hypothetical in that world. You now hear people talking in this especially this post RBG moment. You hear people talking about a whole wish list of stuff. You hear people saying expanding the court's term limits for justices. Getting rid of the filibuster. National popular vote Reinstating the Voting Rights Act statehood for DC Puerto Rico, maybe even Guam. It is anything on this list? Something that you're not Down with are you? Are you okay with all those things and what do you prioritise and how do you get there under abiding administration and a democratic Congress? Well, first right off the boat. I will say that I am not supportive of blankets, Statehood for Puerto Rico. I actually introduced a bill with media Velasquez for a self determination process on DH, one that is is binding just and not influenced by outside interests. And the issue of D C. Statehood and Rico statehood are two very, very different issues. Rhetorical was a colony and is a colony and it's a spoil of war and the United States. Has been imperial force in that colonial dynamic. And so the way we approach colonized entities is a process of self determination and decolonization D C. Statehood is an issue of just criminal disenfranchisement. And so that's one distinction that that that I would put in there. Joe Biden is a fan of Puerto Rico statehood, and that's when small difference will. It's a big difference for Ricans..
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.

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.

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
Sen. Richard Burr Faces Lawsuit Over Timing Of Stock Sale
"Water members of Congress going to do about stock trading by themselves. Revelations about Senator Richard. Burr raised this question. Our colleague Tim. Mack revealed that Senator Burr gave dire warnings about the pandemic to an exclusive group. A month ago that was a time when the president was downplaying the threat then propublica revealed that Burr also sold a lot of stock before the market crashed. Npr's Tim Mack still on this story. Tim Good Morning. Hey Good morning should lawmakers be trading in stocks at all well some lawmakers believe that they should be allowed to do that at all at lawmakers in the House of introduced what they call the band conflicted trading act. Now that's a bill. I championed by Jeff Merkley of Oregon in the Senate. It would prohibit lawmakers from trading individual stocks so along with Congressman Joanna Goose and Congresswoman Alexandria. Cossio Cortez Congressman Raja Krishna. More `they is one of the lead sponsors of the legislation. I think it's time that the public knows that their members of Congress are not profiteering. Off of you know information. They gained through their public service. It's not fair and it's not right. Democrats are the initial co-sponsors to the legislation but given the bipartisan outrage at Burr's actions they have some hope that Republicans will join them and to be clear this is telling lawmakers you can still have money. You can still try. A Mutual Fund Index Fund not individual stocks. Could PROFIT OFF OF INSIDE INFORMATION? Now this is not going to apply to Senator Booker if it becomes law. Because he's done what he's done but he's being sued isn't it? That's right Allan Allan Jacobsen of California was a shareholder in Wyndham hotels and resorts one of the stocks that bursts sold. And he's alleging that Senator Burr exploited information available to him as a senator for personal gain. Thomas O'Brien is lawyer representing Jacobson. And he said that they are trying to take the lead holding burr accountable. Back there. We're not waiting. For the Federal Government Regulatory Agencies. Were moving forward to remedy the wrong. With senator straight against are not I should note. I reset senator. Burs office for comment for the story but received no response Previously. He said that he relied only on public news stories to make his decision to dump stocks. He's also asked the Senate ethics committee to open an investigation into his own. Actions could face other scrutiny. Well the big question is whether the Justice Department and or the Securities and Exchange Commission will open up an investigation based on the facts. We already know in the public domain so to answer that I tried to ask around to people who had some experience in this manner. I spoke to Katie Goldstein. Who used to hold who used to lead these sorts of investigations in the US Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York? When I first read the allegations the thought that crossed my mind was it seems likely to me that there will be a grand jury investigation of this conduct. The circumstances were such that. I thought it was likely that. Us Attorneys Office. Perhaps the southern district of New York would open an investigation. So that's her view and her estimation but to be clear there's no evidence to the actual investigation has started. I also reached out to the Justice Department and the SEC. And they had no comment so a couple of things going on people saying there. Oughta be a law and also maybe impressions about whether Burr broke an existing law. Tim thanks so
Biden, Sanders battle for the Latinx vote
"Let's get to our first topic. Which is going to be a two thousand twenty election update who would have thought that the election the United States would be like a secondary story but it kind of is even though it's also a huge story weekly because you know two weeks ago we couldn't be saying this. I certainly didn't imagine this right that Joe Biden would now be in the lead basically in terms of delegates that he won Michigan Idaho Mississippi and Missouri all went for Joe Biden right now sanders. One North Dakota and Washington is still too close to call. I mean this is truly Julio like an extraordinary unfolding of events I still say yes. It was the coalescing. Is it so much the love for Biden or was it simply at the choice has got reduced none? The less Democratic Party has got some challenges yet and if people are following the delegate count and again you know Biden as of this recording. He has eight hundred eighty one delegates Sanders has seven hundred twenty five. We're seeing the same pattern as we saw. Super Tuesday Biden is doing really well with older voters. Sanders is sweeping the youth. Vote Biden again doing really well in the south with black voters. Sanders getting the Latino. Vote and the main thing about all this money is that older. Democratic voters are just showing up and coming out more. It's very simple. Older voters are coming out younger. Voters are not and one of the things you know. It was a weird night to cover politics because it was the early news of the corona virus. Starting to happen. The big Tuesday election coverage became secondary very quickly. It was almost very subdued. What happened on Tuesday but what was interesting as I went on instagram. GotTa notification that Alexandria. Oh Cossio Cortez was going live on instagram. And I watched her basically address. What happened in these primaries? One of the things that we're seeing that there's a very strong generational divide and this is something that I've encountered something that I have noticed across many different issues. There's a generational divide in the Democratic Party on healthcare on climate change on foreign policy on pretty much every policy imaginable and as a younger person in this movement. I take a lot of that as information for how we navigate the next decade. So there's like the electoral perspective and there's the movement perspective and I think this is something that's really important that we talk about. Because electoral politics can be movement based but movements aren't necessarily electoral in nature. Either and the interplay in the relationship between these two things is something to pay attention to something. That's important so media you just heard. Afc She was in the thick Back in the day. What do you think about what you'll see? Said I think is coming out a winner in all of this because of her authenticity which is what people are dying to see in their politicians. And so I just think that she. She's keeping her feet on the ground. I think we understand. We've talked about it. That her power in the endorsement of Sanders was huge. A am very concerned about the the lack of turnout among young people. I I'm trying to understand. Is it just because they do want to do it? But then they like they actually never remembered to register or the day of the election. Just you know weren't in the right state or in the right time like what? What is that about? Because let dino's Latina's were turning out but it's like the younger vote just didn't carry it and I'm still fascinated by what you call the motivation of older voters to come out for Joe Biden. You know one of the things that is clear to me with all this because looking at Michigan which Sanders won over Hillary Clinton in two thousand sixteen a lot of those same voters chose Biden bright working class white non educated or even white suburban voters like college educated and Bernie's platform really hasn't changed since two thousand and sixteen so I think in twenty twenty. The big difference is that he wasn't up against the woman and so I feel like part of that. Michigan vote was Anti Hillary Clinton interesting. Yeah in two thousand sixteen over Pro Bernie and you know this whole notion of misogyny in electoral politics. I think once we get out of what we're in now. I feel like that has to be something that we need to continue to explore right. And you're convinced that all the male run American mainstream media is GONNA do thoughtful work. No but that's why I roll with you. We're GONNA do it here because I wanNA roll with you in some bad ass women and doing it in the thick down the road about all this because I feel like it is a big takeaway of this electoral seasonable. Listen what's going to happen next because I feel like this is where I think we can start looking at the pandemic and electoral politics but talking a little bit about that you know a lot of Biden supporters were urging Sanderson. Drop after you underperform on Tuesday and I think a lot of this has also with you know the pandemic th people are. Kinda like electoral politics. I got other things to worry about. There's a case to be said and on Friday Louisiana date of Louisiana became the first day to announce that it's postponing its primary until the summer that primary was scheduled to be on April fourth but at the same time sanders. Supporters are still reminding people that you know Biden is not even close to getting the delegates. He needs to get the nomination. They're still twenty nine more states that have yet to vote including Puerto Rico as a territory so there you go so on Wednesday Sanders Address. The press and he said that he would stay in the race. I cannot tell you how many people our campaign has spoken to. Who have said quote. I like what your campaign stands for. I agree with what your campaign stands for. But I'm GonNa vote for Joe Biden because I think Joe is the best candidate to defeat. Donald trump end of quote. We have heard that statement all over this country. Needless to say I strongly disagree without assertion but that is what millions of Democrats and independents today believe Donald Trump must be defeated. And I will do everything in my power to make that happen on Sunday night. In the first one on one debate of this campaign the American people will have the opportunity to see which candidate is best positioned to accomplish that goal so a couple of things. Sunday debate is going to be audience free. It was going to be in Phoenix Arizona and then it got moved to DC because of the corona virus crisis also known as Covy nineteen audience. Three no spin room. Cnn univision are hosting the debate. Here's the thing money. Yeah this is the part for me where I'm kind of like our people just going to lose interest in this race because of the crisis. There's so much that shifting beneath our feet right now yeah. I think that actually could spur people because you know the clear evidence of administration lying in the middle of public health crisis pandemic. I don't know though because I worry about people who are so far into the Donald trump sphere that they. I have heard in this past week. People who I know saying things like it's just a hoax. Wow Yes A. I'm sorry I don't know. Yeah so so. I don't
Facebook Revises Rules On Political Advertising
"Facebook announced what it will and will not change as the twenty twenty election arrives. The social media giant says it will let users choose to see fewer political Ads so how does that compare to what its critics wanted Washington Post policy reporter. Tony Romm is with us once again. Good Morning Good Morning. Thanks for coming by. Let's listen to mark Mark Zuckerberg of facebook in an exchange with Representative Alexandria Cossio. Cortez your last year. Let's listen so you won't take down lies or you will take online so I think it's pretty simple. Yes or no hungry woman in Montauk not spin I'm talking about actual yes to democracy. I believe that people should be able to see for themselves. What politicians that they may or may not vote for? You won't take out or for themselves. I read that to mean facebook generally is not going to be taking sitting down lies. That was then this is now. Is that still the policy. It is still the policy. FACEBOOK is not going to take down falsehoods with some limited exceptions. You can't for instance tell people the wrong election date even enrolling out some of these big changes yesterday trying to tighten the political advertising ecosystem ahead of the twenty twenty election sucker. Brook is sticking to this notion that facebook should not serve as the arbiter of truth. It shouldn't be the thing that gets in the way of what a politician is trying to say to the voters taking the position position. That even the politician lying something you might like to know about your politician that they lied but will this policy. Do right the pulse really does two things and I. It gives you more control over the political ads. You see you essentially say you know what. I'm tired of the two thousand twenty election. I WANNA turn off most of that stuff and starting this summer. You'll have an option to be able to do that. Are there multiple options. Can I just turn off the liberal ads or turn off the conservative ads the conspiracy theory ads or whatever category there might in a sense. You can there's going to be one button. Allegedly this is according to the from. Yesterday that has not been fully rolled out yet where you can limits as across the board and then there's a second tool that you can take advantage of that stops. Individual campaigns ends and businesses from targeting adds to you based on your email address or other personal information that they might have on you so I could say I don't WanNa hear anymore from Donald trump or I don't WanNa hear anymore from Elizabeth Warren or pick your person right this is. This is a sort of what facebook is saying here. Based on those ads that are targeted to you on the basis of your email address entirely clear. What is is a political ad because as you know very well? There's so many different kinds of advertisements on issues that aren't necessarily directly from about a candidate. The right facebook has defined this in the sense to include everything from mechanic a campaign and a series a list of issues that include things like immigration and abortion and so forth. And when we're talking about this concern turnaround lying around falsehoods. That mostly involves candidates here. That's a person like president trump and his campaign speaking voters. And we've seen what happens when and facebook's policy really comes to head this occurred last year president trump's campaign purchase a series of ads that included a number of falsehoods about Vice President Joe Biden as it related into the impeachment inquiry underway on Capitol Hill Right now and facebook saw that it received a number of criticisms asking to take it down facebook said no those ads would still. We'll be allowed under facebook's new policy although you can choose not to see them if you decide but wouldn't this just encourage candidates to let other people lie for them which they already do now which they certainly already do within the other concern here. Is that. It's so hard to use facebook in the first place. I mean think about it. How many of your friends or loved ones know how to find their privacy or advertising advertising settings this is the issue that's been raised by experts and lawmakers in recent days? We'll just really matter. We'll see it leaves people to police their own their own
John Kerry endorses Joe Biden for 2020 election
"Twenty twenty league now former Vice President Joe Biden capping off a big week in the twenty twenty democratic race. After calling one disapproving voter quote Damn Liar he stayed out of the fray as two of his opponents. Went after each other Biden is now touting a new endorsement from his old pal from the US Senate former senator and secretary of State John Kerry who campaign today in Iowa state that carry one and two thousand four. And that's where we financing ends Jessica Dean great at my friend with me. I can't think of anybody rather have two old friends together again. As former former secretary of State John Kerry joins former Vice President Joe Biden on the campaign trail. I am endorsing Joe Biden. Not Because I've known him so long but because I have known him so well. In addition to carry bolstering Biden's experience argument. The Biden campaign hopes to capture some of the former democratic nominees companies. Come from behind magic that led to his two thousand. Four victory in. The Iowa caucuses winter the I will caucus which kind of helps you all. Although I do that sounds pretty good to me. Kerry's presence is just one piece of the Biden campaigns more aggressive approach to Iowa the weather this week in the last seven days Biden his health sixteen events mostly in rural areas. I need your help. Thank you thank you. Thank you a competent Biden. Also taking taking him Bolton swipes at his rivals questioning voter enthusiasm for Senator Elizabeth Warren and telling reporters mayor p Buddha. Judge stole his healthcare plan.

Gas Company meantime. His campaign launched a staving video targeting president trump thing the world is laughing at him him several world leaders mocking president trump. They're laughing at home. And even as Biden makes the case the Democratic Party isn't as far left as progressive aggressive New York congresswoman Alexandria. Cossio Cortez telling axios. She's a wonderful person. But where's the party at Super Pac supporting reporting Biden. Cut An ad for Iowa. Airwaves painting him as a longtime progressive lighting.

Democrats Frustrated With Pelosi’s Unwillingness To Impeach Trump
"Democratic frustration with Speaker Nancy Pelosi's unwillingness to impeach president trump is reaching a fever pitch following reports that trump pressured Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden and his son an increasingly singley vocal group of Pro Impeachment House Democrats are starting to dismiss their own oversight of trump as feckless accusing their colleagues of emboldening the president by refusing to stand up to what they see as lawless behavior at the very least these Democrats say the house should be taking more aggressive action to break the unprecedented White House stonewalling possibly defining or jailing defiant trump officials an idea Polisi dismissed earlier this year but which has increasing momentum inside the caucus congresswoman congresswoman Alexandria Cossio Cortez a longtime impeachment backer and a member of the squad tweeted this weekend at this point in her words. The bigger national scandal isn't the the president's lawbreaking behavior. It's the Democratic Party's refusal to impeach him for it. It's one thing for a sitting president to break the law. She tweeted but it's another to let him even house. Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff impeachment skeptic and a Pelosi ally suggested this weekend that the Rubicon may have been crossed he said impeachment I might now be inevitable and called reports of trump requesting that the Ukrainian leader investigate a business connected to Biden son quote the most profound violation of the presidential initial oath of office yet trump suggested Sunday that he did indeed mentioned Biden and his son hunter in a phone call with Ukrainian President Vladimir's Alinsky before releasing. US military aid trump has denied that it did anything wrong amid questions about whether he abused power to seek help from a foreign country for his reelection several people close to Pelosi told our Rachel Bait on Sunday that the speaker realizes trump's Ukraine request could force her hand. I'm told that she and shift were in touch throughout the weekend. Sinking sinking up strategies and talking points in a rare Sunday afternoon letter to all the members of the House the speaker called for the Director of National Intelligence to turn over the whistleblower complaint detailing trump's trump's interactions with Ukraine. Policy threatened an unspecified escalation in house action. If trump refuses though notably she stopped short of impeachment. White House lawyers have sought ways at every turn to block documents or witnesses from congressional investigators under the direction of the president who decries the various probes into him. I'm in his finances as unfair. He also Mocks House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler routinely the calculation White House officials. Tell my colleague Josh Dossey is that there will not be much of a price to pay for obstinance from the general public that the people who will be upset by this stonewalling will be on the Left Democrats they they say have been unable to move public sentiment in favor of impeaching trump to White House officials add that they're not worried about defying mocking Nadler because Pelosi's made it clear she's not interested in impeachment and the House Democratic Caucus split about what to do but in the two hundred thirty five member Democratic Caucus a majority of one hundred thirty eight have no publicly endorsed impeachment with policy unwilling to impeach trump democratic rank and file members are frantically looking for something to fortify their investigations on Friday afternoon mean judiciary members press Nadler to invoke Congress's long-dormant inherent contempt authority this would allow Congress to jail or fine people for defying subpoenas. Nadler Nadler supports this idea the power hasn't been used in a hundred years about Pelosi members of the leadership team some house lawyers were dismissive of the idea when investigators I floated in the spring but members of the committee are once again trying to force the issue and are planning to make the matter a big focus this week
The Role Of TV In Today's Politics
"Were joined by Brian Steinberg. He covers the business of advertising media and television variety. Hey Brian. How are you doing John. I'm I am well. Let's talk about the controversy over an ad that ran during last night's Democratic candidate debate. Tell us what that ad was about yeah. This is a spot showed New York Representative House Angie Occasional Cortez with becky burning on on camera. It's very dark and noticeable thing to do and probably not the norm. This is the face of socialism and ignorance does Alexandra Cossio Cortez. No the whore war socialism. My father was minutes from death in Cambodia before a forced marriage saved his life. That's socialism forced obedience chance starvation it was by somebody named Elizabeth hang and it was through a political action committee. What do we know about Elizabeth Tang and the Political Action Committee. Put The ad together we oh she's a Republican activist. I believe she's also a former congressional candidate who did not win when she did run so she did that and I think she she's a member this past. She's definitely a political operative some people are calling for a boycott of ABC the but it's unclear to me of the ad ran on the network or stations owned by the Sinclair Broadcast Group. Do you know where it ran and who ran it. We're not quite clear that my guest and educated guess most political advertisers are quite I guess is probably medium small size probably could not afford a national ad buy on ABC in Primetime Mike the Strategy Policy would be to run the AD in certain markets that have the people they're trying unreach- most intently my educated guess would say they probably bought stations in certain markets where we're trying to make a point that could be big cities as well as small towns towns will definitely appears run in Washington. DC and a lot of people are now watching the ad online so it may not have been something that was approved by ABC but in rough terms what does it network have to say about what ads are and are not on its airwaves now works with these type of things typically typically. I think tried to not run ads that require them to give equal voice other parties and other what that means they would have to run commercials goals. Ad Infinitum for PLO things there are there are mistakes and they're having the passion they run certain commercials that are just so political that require an opposing viewpoint almost immediately or are. Are you know the claims verified immediately but they're supposed to kind of vet most commercials for clean competitive claims and that sort of thing and I would be suspicious. ABC Rams nationwide. I think it's important to note what the Sinclair Broadcast Group is because they are also not only an owner of almost two hundred rid stations across the country but they appear to have a political agenda and have been asking some of their news anchors to run political pieces that basically echo some talking points out of the trump White House so who's in Clare and why are they an important part of this story well sinclair is a massively large owner of stations they own stations that are of ABC and others they haven't known to set a conservative agenda in recent years to build their own newsgathering and news programming across the nation and they've also mandated in certain instances for their various local news programs to take up certain topics or broadcast certain editorials from people who were hired by Sinclair without always disclosing that the station ownership within the company ownership has certain political stances is there anything that people people could ask either sinclair or ABC to do in terms of response. Does the equal time idea still apply well when politicians get on they you know they're the network is typically. mandated to provide access to someone via posing as what they typically avoid. They're very strict about these these local commercials. I think you know this happened on. NBC RAN AN AD showing people swarming wall during the immigration controversy and it ran during football the ball one of the biggest shows on the schedule everyone saw and NBC actually came out with the same should not run was an error on our part that the ad ran so networks works are cognizant of these things and they usually wash more closely which is why we have to get the bomb whether they national random nationally ran station by station where the networks often are surprised to find out what some of the stations are putting on the air. It seems like a massive reached compare Alexandra Causo Cortes to Pol Pot or the Khmer Rouge but do the people who put this ad together have the freedom to suggest that even if it's not essentially factually true you're supposed to make verifiable verifiable claims now as for products politics can kind of range farther afield you see all kinds of claims and things and one reason that this is kind of flourishes in the majority. Giardi of political advertising takes place on the locals have local adds to your not national nationalists a far too expensive for most people to afford running on a regular basis and and be a not very targeted if you're if you're running for Senate in in Saint Louis. There's little reason to add New York City national candidate. Y- The president you can probably tell you the markets that are most up for
Dem Rep. Al Green: Impeach Trump For Racist Tweets
"Yesterday. An attempt was made to impeach trump congressman Al Green Democrat from Texas filed the resolution as a response wants to trump's boil boldly indeed racist suggestion for U._S.. Congresswoman go back Wednesday came a theme gleefully elaborated upon by chorus of hooting yokels at a trump rally in North Carolina last night now. I'm joined with more on this by U._S.. U._S. affairs analyst Jacob Para Kilos Jacob the thing that may not seem immediately apparent to the passing observer this is of course the Democrats do have a majority in the House of Representatives but the impeachment vote what was lost three hundred and thirty two to ninety five with one hundred and thirty seven hundred thirty seven Democrats voting against why well there's a significant strategic difference of opinion amongst the Democratic House caucus about how to proceed receive impeachment or indeed whether to proceed with impeachment at all this came up very very quickly in direct response to the president's racist tweets and follow up commentary about Ilhan Omar Alexandra Cossio Cortez and other Democratic representatives who are all not coincidentally women of color he basically I think <hes> representative green described this as a vote of conscience. I mean the the normal way to do. If there is such a thing because as you rightly point out impeachment it's very rare in American history but the normal way to do this the process that Nixon was in the middle of what he decided to resign would be to hold hearings to open an impeachment inquiry to sort of move this forward through a long and fairly arduous process rather than just snapping to an impeachment vote because of course the impeachment itself is not the removal from office.
"cossio cortez" Discussed on News-Talk 1400 The Patriot
"Andrea Cossio Cortez for comparing migrant attention camps to concentration camp. House, Republican leader, Kevin McCarthy demanding an apology. I think congresswoman AFC needs to apologize. Not only to the nation, but to the world, she does not understand history. She does not understand what's going on.

If you don't mind Alexandria, Cossio Cortez. Bernie sanders. Maybe some more. We get lucky. There's a Republican group. Let's filed a complaint with the FCC the federal elections commission. They did this morning to my knowledge alleging that Representative of Alexandria, Cossio Cortez. May have illegally funneled a lot of dough. A lot of a lot of money thousands of dollars through. I guess you could call allied pack, a pack of political action committee to her boyfriend whose name is Riley Roberts in other media wants to call him rut, Robert Riley, all the time, but it's Riley Roberts as far as. Uh-huh. So members of the DC based Coolidge Reagan foundation alleged their complaint that the brand new congress the beard. See that's a political arm of the brand new carbon congress LLC a company that was hired by AO see to run and support her campaign paid Roberts. A marketing service fee in such a way that it read big afoul of campaign finance law. Dan, backer, who's the DC based attorney who filed a complaint of behalf. The foundation is telling the media, it's not legal for her to pay her boyfriend, excuse me. It's not illegal attached rate. It's not illegal for her to pay her boyfriend. But it appears they created some sort of scheme to avoid claiming the money as a campaign expense. What exactly did he do for that money? Don't use your imagination. So it was first reported last week. I think it was the brand new congress this organization their pack paid Roberts during the early days of her campaign, and according to FCC records, they made a couple of smaller payments to Roberts wanted August of two thousand seventeen one in September of the same year both for about three thousand bucks. The FCC complaint. Specifically cites the use of intermediaries to make the payments now. Again, using a quote here the league and morpheus dater of the services Riley of stanchly provided in the relatively small about raised by the campaign at that stage and the quote robotic relationship between a Cossio Cortez and Riley in a certain transactions appear to be a violation of campaign finance law. So the Coolidge Reagan foundation. It's five oh, one C three is requesting that the FCC look into the payments for potential violations on relevant campaign finance laws that the the the the state that campaign contributions were run through quote shell that be converted by other person to personal use quote and that an authorized committee. You know, they have to name the they have to produce the name of the address of each person who's received any disbursement not disclosed. And there were discrepancies there in that particular category. So officials with the b and c they're claiming at a previous statement that everything was on the up and up regarding the payments. Maybe they were this is why there needs to be an investigation. Now her boyfriend Riley Roberts, who is he. He is a professional. Very pleased. He thinks he is now he's a professional marketing growth consultant professional professional digital marketing growth consultant who specializes in social media presence, and what he calls subscriber engagement. Hey, something. The Democrats are very good at. And his hiring was based upon the experience in managing successful, advertising and social media campaigns. So that he had a legit used to her other than what goes on between boyfriend and girlfriend, if you don't wanna be Wiki Wiki, nudge, nudge. So he was hired for a two month trial period. Beginning in August. A couple of years ago two thousand seventeen he worked through September not long and the services to the brand new congress pack consistent of advertising strategies for potential growth. Developing metrics of eighty the execution of the strategy to increase brand awareness, all the marketing stuff that I do with clients who were selling goods he did with an individual running for office. There's a lot of similarities there between getting somebody elected in selling a widget at your store the Todd, and if you approach his little secret selling a widget at your store like getting somebody elected, you could do a lot better. You don't make a lot of money. What am I great secrets for days? Say that on the air. So today's complete cubs after a blog post on the internet by political consultant, Luke Thomas, who I flagged the payments tops, excuse me, who I flagged the payments to Roberts. Now, his screed. I love that word. Prompted pushback from personally from Alexandria, enter chief of staff, and it also included some verified about call up that speculation of legal impropriety an incorrect claim that the democratic care. The Democrats campaign raised only three thousand dollars while spending nearly twenty eight thousand dollars ignoring the the campaign of law applicable to time, and they also raised thirty three thousand dollars more more from small donors. Bay are saying this is an incorrect claim they being Alexandria, Cossio Cortez. So the congresswoman fired back on Twitter last week or self rather than having a spokesperson do it. She would always rather do that herself. As we all know he's gonna like Trump saying this conspiracy machine. Is in its full effect and has been disappointing to watch professionals, get duped amplify, invented medium post as the truth treating journalism like it's a high school river Bill or something to that effect. No, I do not Shadily pay my boyfriend come on me. So she's throw down the garland said check me out from elbow to dwell ever you want to go so news of these payments came after it was discovered. The Roberts was recently, given oh a congressional Email account with sub suggesting it was an ethics violation as boyfriends might not reach the level of partners or spouses who might otherwise be given such access, but that's a fine line. The spokesperson for the office of chief administrative officer, David oboe, telling the media from time to time at the request of members. Spouses and partners are provided house Email accounts for the purposes of viewing the members calendar. Alexandria, Cossio Cortez says the account was given. So he could have access to her calendar dismissing another claim by tops who discovered all this that he was all the staff and making buck by everybody's back. She says that was nonsense. But there seems to be a bit of a paper trail there that says to the contraire this may have occurred. So that's why the FCC has to be involved. That is the latest on everybody's favorite Alexandria Cossio. Cortes. There's been kind of quiet lately. I I have the greatest authority than a number of older. Democrats have talked to primarily, and they basically said shock the hell op Ed she seems to be going along with that.

Maybe even the old incumbent that she beat. Bring him back. Joe? Big democrat. So they're even people in her old party plotting against her. That when we come back. Let's do it update on the other. Socialist Bernie Sanders Bernie Sanders if you followed his rhetoric over the years. He loves to cite the socialism, the brand of socialism that is prevalent in Sweden. Sweden has been referred to much like England eight a democratic social democracy. A benevolent would. Things are cool there. But there it's not it's not a Republic as we are. It's not a full democracy. It's it's socialism. But it Sanders citing all of this wonderful stuff about socialists, Sweden there. Former prime minister who is it kind of a different guy.

So he's talking about this same kind of thing, which is not helping Californians have more flexibility and freedom as well. It's only motivating many California's to get the heck out of the state.

So they're asking listen about the sandbag San Diego association of governments. How do we get a big transit thing going? You know, what about? You gotta make up revenue for the gas tax. If we all go to non gas vehicles in the near future pressed by people who do this thing. Law wise, you gotta make up for lost revenue for the gas tax. So he says, well, I don't want to do with gas taxes, it's regressive. So I'll give allegation that. He's right. But he says I like creative ideas Fletcher says I like better for this. Like, I thought it'd be interesting to look at a tire tax. Title tax, your tires fancy pants tires. Get more big fat tires get more tax. He said if you did it as a percentage of the cost of the tire, let's say you have a two thousand pound expedition, by the way, fine Ford vehicle available for your tires would be really expensive. And there's an actual title. How much you drive says Fletcher? But the idea that we want to get the incentives in the right places. I think one hundred percent, right. There's this historic sense it in San Diego, we sat low expectation and then cut them in half. That's what needs to change. We need a generation of really bold thinking translation, we need a generation that is gonna take every bit of spare cash you have.

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. As of now, five fifty one, here's Rushbo. Left.

"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. I have a comment, and I have a point to make my comment is she's from New York, and especially from queens. I've spent a lot of time there. What do you expect from these folks out there? Crazier than a lunatic, and she got into congress. Gary a handful of people. My point is this. John and Andrew, yes. Back in the eighties. We were laughing at such things as this and never thought that.

"Video feed is on my website, joepags dot com. Just look play on whatever device you happen to be on. Actually, it was has report on what the president's going to say today and for those who don't know we do the show on Saturday between noon and three eastern time nine AM in noon Pacific time. And it's it's important to tell you that because there's news that happens after I do the show. You're like why didn't even talk about that? He sucks, you might think I suck anywhere. But whatever, but I don't not do the news because I saw it and just decided not sock about some things happen after the show gets done. So when like the moment the show gets done today, the president is going to make what he calls a major announcement on the border on the shutdown and so on so we'll see what that's all about. I have not heard about Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer needing to re to rebut would he has to say or somehow respond to what he has to say. It's going to be very interesting to watch. Alexandria, Cossio Cortez is not smart. It's going to put it out there. That's not fake news. This is true. Doesn't understand economics? Doesn't understand the unemployment rate is understand whether she wants to turn seats, redder blue. When people ask her even interesting Cooper had had the snicker when they ask her. How you to pay for all this stuff that you talking about the way just pay for it? Yeah. But how how will you just pay for it? She doesn't have an answer. And she is actually quoted as saying something stupid like I may be factually incorrect, but I'm morally right, which doesn't make any sense to be honest, but I'd had enough. And there is a new faction of representatives in the house of representatives that are far leftist, socialists, they want Venezuela. They wanna make America Venezuela. They think that somehow as good a bunch of mushy, brained, millennials, not all of you. Because a lot of millennials are smart, but a mush a bunch of mushy brain millennials, actually want them to win because of the promise of free stuff, and let's all get high smoke Powell day. I couldn't not do a pags parody. And if you're new to the program, I take songs that you love and ruin them by changing the words in singing the myself. The Monday through Friday show the Joe pags show. We actually have a news anchor. Who's my sidekick, I've got my tech guy who's aboard up and and good friend polo. He he hear him. You hear my daughter's San lose the screener to different kind of show we've got sort of a cast of characters and I do these parodies.

"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? I have a question for you. I have an answer for you. There you go where the answer I we have a homeland security. Director correct. Yes. Kissed him. Nielsen. Okay. Now, she gets X amount of dollars a year. And her job is to secure borders. Correct. Young was. Congress even even. Because this person that President Trump put in office. S's secure.
