"Is that I will obey all the rules and starry decisis that if a question comes up before me about whether Casey or any other case should be overruled that I will follow the law started sizes. Applying it as the court has articulating it, applying all the factors Reliance workability being undermined by later fax in law, just all the standard factors and I promise to do that for any issue that comes up abortion or anything else. I follow the law. Well, I think that's expected and well, I guess I'm going as far as I can let me go to another issue this country is facing. Great gun violence there spend a surgeon gun sales during the covert 19 crisis, which has led to more lives being needlessly lost. According to the gun violence are Cave archive. Excuse me, an independent research organization. There were 60 mass shootings and may alone. These shootings killed 40 people. They hurt 250 more. Also, there's been a troubling Spike in gun sales. Americans bought approximately two million guns this past March committee ranking Democrat Dianne Feinstein, second highest month ever for gun sales. That figure does not take into account all the gun sales that could not be completed because the purchaser failed a background test a check. Excuse me a number that has also skyrocketed. For example, this past March. The FBI's background check system blocked 23,692 sales more than double the 9500 sales blocked in March of 2019. Do you agree that federal, state and local governments have a compelling interest in preventing a rise in gun violence, particularly during a pandemic? Well, Senator course the constitutionality of any particular measure that we're past that was passed by state or local governments are by this body would be subject to the same judicial process that I described with Senator Graham. What I will say is because this is just descriptive of Heller Heller leaves room for gun regulations. And that's why there has been a lot of litigation in the lower courts, which makes me constrained not to comment on the limits of it. But Heller does not make a right, absolute says so, in the opinion. Well, let me ask one more question. In a recent dissenting opinion that you wrote you said there was quote, no question end quote that quote, keeping guns out of the hands of those who were likely to misuse them. Quote is quote a very Strong governmental interest. Do you stand by that statement, So I don't say I can't remember precisely the words of Cantor, which is the case in which I descended. But that's cattle before Genevieve are what I said. In that opinion, I standby, which is that the original meaning of the Second Amendment and I went through. A lot of detailed history in that case does support the idea that governments are free. To keep guns out of the hands of the dangerous So, for example, the mentally ill others who would be likely to misuse guns. So where does that leave you? On road? The chairman asked. I thought a very good question for many people, and particularly for women. This is a fundamental question. We all have our moral values. We have our religions. We live by that I respect you and your family for doing just that, But this is a very real problem out there. And if you could be more specific in any way with respect how you view your place on the court with respect to controlling weapons in this country? Um I think what I can say is that my opinion and canter Shows how I approached questions as a matter of judicial philosophy. I spent a lot of time in that opinion, looking at the history of the Second Amendment and looking at the Supreme Court cases and so the way in which I would approach the review of gun regulation is in that same way to look very carefully at the text to look carefully at the original meaning was that that was the method that both the majority and dissent and Heller took. So I promised that I would come to that with an open mind. Applying the law as I could best determine it. Okay, let me move on one of my constituents, Cristina Garcia was able to obtain insurance coverage and have surgery that saved her eyesight on Lee before the affordable Care act. Her experience is not unique..

Many companies in California could soon be required to have more diverse boards of directors under a bill sitting on Governor Gavin Newsom's desk. Proposal passed in the state legislature. But Newsome is still deciding whether to sign it into law case these cherry Glaser explains. What the bill would do. The measure would require publicly held corporations headquartered in California to have at least one board member from an underrepresented groups by the end of 2021. That could include someone who's self identifies, as, say, Black, Hispanic Pacific Islander or Native American or as LGBTQ you and by the end of 2022, it would require large boards with nine or more members to have three from underrepresented groups. Smaller boards would have to have two Democratic Assembly member Cristina Garcia is one of the bill's authors, She tells the Times of executive boards are more diverse companies would be more likely to create opportunities for people of color and to give them the support they need to succeed.

"During this hour, we had John coupons from the Howard Jarvis taxpayers association on he's the president. And now that in Sacramento Democrats have claimed sixty of the eighty seats in the assembly and twenty nine of forty in the state Senate that is beyond the super that's three quarters. They could do really what they want and Gavin Newsom doesn't matter. But meanwhile, he had something to say because the Sacramento bee reported that when they came back on Monday to their legislative session. They introduced more than one hundred bills containing within forty billion dollars in proposed new and I repeat the word new spending. In fact, the Sacramento bee article has a list, this is almost hard to believe, but we'll start with expanding Medicaid eligibility to adults without legal authorization to live in the US perfect. Wow. That would be illegal aliens that's three billion. Let's see. How many words that they use adults with? Without legal authorisation for to live six in the United States. They use ten words instead of two. They could've used illegal immigrants. But they use ten words. Sleep before you get to the end of the sense an assemblyman from the south bay. Rolling hills estates has introduced a Bill the thirty five billion education funding trying to get California the top ten states in per pupil. Edging? Oh, great. Look at that. Look at that idea. It's to spend an extra thirty five billion dollars. Not for any specific purpose? Just to say we're in the top ten for per pupil spending. That's right now eighty percent of all the money that goes to a school district goes to salaries and pensions and healthcare benefits to teachers administrators and other staff. It's labor costs which means if you give an extra thirty five billion dollars. That means raises for everybody or higher pensions or better healthcare. Right. It doesn't do anything for the student. Yeah. The teacher who's making seventy thousand dollars a year is the same teacher if she's making seventy five Radi. It doesn't make a difference in the teaching. I didn't know what people magic people think happens when you pour extra money into a school system. That's really really bad because you still have really really bad teachers and really bad administrators. Meanwhile, assemblyman, Kevin McCarty from Sacramento. A democrat one point three billion over three years to expand the state's preschool programs. I like this one it's assembly Bill one two three this is this obsession, they have they think that if you give out free preschool, it's going to make a difference. They're going to be brilliant. Yeah. It says your advocacy groups have pushed this for years. It would close the achievement gap that divides six million students because of poor kids don't do as well as rich kids. But they they go to school for thirteen years. And a lot of schools in these poor neighborhoods are terrible, that's the price. So if they have thirteen bad years giving them an extra year or two in a bad school district isn't gonna make a difference. But what's happening? The thirteen years that they're already getting for free. Is it that the kids don't care because their parents don't care and the teachers have given up and the administrators have just sitting on their fat rear ends. But nobody discusses that all we gotta get the top ten per pupil spending time out, and how many of those people's are here illegally. Meanwhile, assembly Bill, two by Miguel Santiago of Los Angeles would make the second year of community college free. This. This is already given away the first year. Now, they want to give away the second year seventy percent of community college students drop out after the first uncle onto the it's a babysitting service a taxpayer paid babysitting service for nineteen year olds they drop out. I don't understand this. Why are we paying for people who are going to drop out? What did we get out of that our best friend in the legislature, assemblywoman Cristina Garcia who did survive for reelection campaign democrat del gardens assembly Bill, thirty one wants to eliminate the state sales tax for menstrual products. Like tampons she's been on that for years. That's our big women's advocacy. Why she obsessed with? The people's gene nether regions. Well, I mean, she's grabbing guys in the crotch. She wants a tax break for for tampons. Is that all that goes on in her head? She's advocating for women. Yeah. But you understand. But that's specifically she's a meat tour. Let's listen to what Gavin Newsom has to say. Although, you know, anything he says today may not hold tomorrow. I think we're going to find that if we can even understand it. Well, it's only twenty seconds. I hope there's not too much gobbledygook in this. But he talks about the idea of all these spending dreams of his fellow Democrats. I don't want to under.

It's back. Couple of California. Lawmakers are trying again. What are they trying? They want to eliminate the taxes on diapers and tampons why? Why never got a straight answer on that? Why? Why why?

They're they're the same two that have been beaten this Trump for years. They reintroduced the bills to exempt the purchasers from paying sales tax on these products. And it's the same argument. Llerena says every baby needs diapers. This is assembly Bill sixty six you know, the fact that we tax diapers is unfair. And it's a burdensome tax that's hurting the working class in the middle class families. Yeah. Well, okay. So in two thousand sixteen I think it was governor Brown vetoed. He vino these these these similar efforts from both lawmakers citing the costs to the state and local governments which restaurant at the time to be fifty five million dollars annually. That's the hint we're gonna take that's the hit that will have to be back filled.

You know, another big scandal concerning sort of the metoo movement here in California affecting politics. Oh, it's another top democrat Cristina Garcia. I wouldn't call her a top democrat. That's the assembly member was accused of groping a guy at a softball game. But the reason that hers was so amazing. She was like one of the California faces of the metoo movement around the time magazine. On the cover with a group of others around the country. Who were this is back when the Harvey Weinstein scandal broke over a year ago this time, it's it's it's a man being accused of these indiscretions. Although, wow, we don't have a lot of details. But it not only says that he's guilty of sexual harassment sexual assault. And what we're talking about is the California Democratic party chairman. Eric Dahlman, probably unknown. People follow this kind of stuff. I don't think I remember remember reading is. There was a and this is just worth mentioning and you'll see why there was a real party fight over this. Because apparently the crowd that wanted him to be the next California Democratic party, chairman Howard. I described in the more Feinstein Democrats the Bernie Sanders. Progressive crab wanted somebody else? And they were fighting really hard to get their guy in their woman wherever she was. I think it was a woman to be the Democratic Party chairman. But this person is considered one of the more powerful Democrats in the state now the thing about this is Daroca interesting name deroga- Daroca Larimore hall, who is the California state democratic party's vice chairman. It's a man. Told the Washington Post he sent a letter to the party secretary calling for this guy's removal. He said he was approached by several party staff members who told him they were sexually harassed and assaulted by Eric Bellman. He said he filed a complaint with the party's human resources department. So he's he's salted other men. We don't know that. But we haven't said that part yet. Oh. The Democratic Party chairman. Eric Belmont is openly gay. There you go. Now, you can say what you said, then he assaulted other men he kind of jumped into sorry. I thought that was part of the setup already. I know you're so what happened was Larimore hall said why don't you step down? And apparently Bowman said, no. So now, he's got to go through the formal process of getting removed. But the thing about this. According to these stories is that the the victims if there are victims, they don't want to a lot of them. Don't want to come forward. They want to remain anonymous in the days, this is what Larimore hall wrote in the letter in the day since the first brave souls have come forward. They have been joined by others with similar stories and experiences credible. Corroborated an utterly heartbreaking. He asked the Democrats honor these survivors by respecting their desire to be left alone. But what did he in some cases to remain? Well, it's just a problem. That's why I'm getting he publicized it, right? Who this this guy Larimore hall deroga-, Derek Larry hall, he publicized it? Now. He's asking the media give the victims their privacy. Here's what he did. He got the complaints. Apparently that I'm assuming they're men. I don't know said, you know, what though I don't want to be dragged down to the public over this. So it's all right. I'll go to battling with this. And hope you'll quit, but he didn't. So this learn well hall says what choice if you've given me. Now, I've got to go public and make an ouster to remove you. So that that's kind of the bind that this guy was any thought he could get this to go away quietly get down and out and keep these guys anonymous guys, I think they are dominant said, no. And I guess. Maybe he is innocent or he thinks he can beat this. I don't know. And all these people are afraid to go public with their stories and the stories are so detailed. They're heartbreaking. And yes, he said that their desire to be left alone. And in some cases to remain anonymous. But you know in this day and age what we've been dealing with this over year. Yup. You're probably going to have to remember who was it. That was being accused. Remember the woman finally came out. It was one of the assembly members right DuBois with his MAC Tabatabai. Right. Remember that woman is I wanted to remain anonymous. But eventually she went public with her story. I think the LA times sat down with her. This is allegedly Bob what exposed himself at a party tour. Yes. And then pleasure himself in the bathroom. You get the same problem. Here wants to fight this. They're going to have to come out publicly and tell their stories because you can't just say, oh, I got anonymous accusers against you. You gotta go. Then you have like judge Cavanaugh situ. I mean, if you if you want him out you got to produce evidence. I don't mean to interrupt you. But this AP just came over saying that Bauman is now taking a leave of absence. Oh, yes. Really? Yes. Just write this stuff. Right. Even have to because now it looks like they are going to do a formal investigation because he wouldn't step down. But I got one quote where he kind of seemed like he was welcoming an investigation into us. But don't do that. Unless you're absolutely one hundred percent victim when I read this as like sex harassment comes in many, different shades, right, but sex assault, well that that's what we're crossing Harvey Weinstein. Right. So huge difference because sexual harassment is is a huge gray area. There's a lot of people who could be a comment yell fire. When there it is that serious, but assault more graphic and disturbing forcible entry. Did you have to well, I'm trying to delineate between. Into a house. That's what you're talking about. Sure. Forceable entry forcible entry. Okay. It's the John and Ken show KFI. Debra Mark has news. The state supreme court has ordered a man convicted of stabbing a homeless man to death in.

Philly representatives proposing a Bill to drug test all Pennsylvania lawmakers. Yes. Drug and alcohol test of all right? But the test they would pass them sitting there going like would they asked a field sobriety test? I don't think so. Well, Sherry see if you can find that audio. This was a woman who had been elected. She's a democrat who was elected to I think the Rhode Island legislature. And she's being interviewed by a radio station, and they're they're asking her. So what's the most surprising thing about being a Representative here in Rhode Island? And you do have it. I am. I correct. Is it Rhode Island's cherries? It is good. Okay. So this is a woman just this is just after twenty sixteen election. And now here she is she's all bright eyed bushy tailed ready to go represent her people and she gets to the capitol and she realizes oh my gosh. Listen to this. And what is the most either both either impressive in appalling thing you've learned about the way government works. I am probably gonna get in a lot of trouble for saying fight. Drinking. Drinking really blows my you cannot operate a motor vehicle when you had to beers. But you can make laws that affect people's lives. Forever. When you're happened. A bag. You say there's a lot of drinking and it goes on. Airtel drinking Nicholson. Now, remember the stories we had coming out of Sacramento earlier this year, but all the drinking those stories have just disappeared. I doubt that the drinking is disappeared. Right. The California assemblywoman Cristina Garcia who was playing spin the bottle with their staffers. Yes. By the way, what happened to her? I think she's back in isn't. She she she took a little time away at the family. Oh, yes. She had spent a little time away. But this is a woman the drinking that went on in her, you know, sphere was off the charts. But then we learned just after that that having kegs of beer in your office. Having a bar in your office and then conducting business with the bar or the keg of beer during the day. This is after hours during the day, and then going back for a vote in Sacramento was something that was perfectly acceptable. As what we do. We work very hard around. Here. We start early in the morning. We don't go later this year. We have a couple of pops. Can you believe this? It's just it's a part of the culture, that's acceptable. So that democrat woman you just heard from Rhode Island makes a good point. You can't operate a car. With a couple of pops under your belt, and yet you can go back to work and vote on laws that impact all of us for the rest of our lives. Yeah. That's not right. In Washington DC. It's it's it's crazy as well. I mean, I've heard the stories from people who've worked back there. It's an absolute nut so environment. But then we had that story. Oh, gosh. Maybe it was earlier this year as well. It was a story about the pharmacy that supports the congress. So congress they've got their own medical plan. They've got their own jam. They've got their own cafeteria. They have pharmacy and this pharmacists pharmacy. That's been around forever in this pharmacist has an interview somebody and he's just concerned about the drugs that are being prescribed to members of congress. Because some of these drugs are drugs used for people with Alzheimer's, yes. Yup. Your end, and these people are making our laws. They're suffering from battling with Alzheimer's what? That's crazy. That's right. I remember this story. The house is actually let's see the story that I'm looking at. They found a figured all this stuff out in October of last year. That's the pharmacy story. Yup. Congressional pharmacy is reportedly delivered drugs used for Alzheimer's to congress. So. Didn't hear about that anywhere other than I like drug testing, these people? I I listen if it's a legitimate prescription drug. I don't have a problem with it. But if it's if it's something having to do with your brain not functioning properly, we have some serious problems. But then what about other drugs other drugs? You're you're doing a little coke on the weekend. Do I really want you making laws for me Monday through Friday. Would you do a coq au the weekends et cetera et cetera et cetera. The FBI background checks being savage was other program here. Just the other day talking about the fact that Barack Obama couldn't have passed one of those tests based on his associations couldn't have gotten a couldn't have gotten a clearance based associations. Okay. Well, that's just the way it works in in DC. And that's the way it works here at Sacramento, but I like this. This guy Pennsylvania legislature is arguing if it's good for one. It's good for all. I want to require all state lawmakers to be tested for illegal drugs. Okay. Like it. I like it. So he's got this amendment. Now. What are they going to do with this? How do you seriously? If this if this gets out of committee, how do you possibly vote against this? No, it's I think it's okay. For pets lawmakers you used illegal drugs. That's fine. With me. How do you? Right. Just to let you know in order to work the drive through window in and out you get drug tested. In order to say would you like a place mat? And will you be eating this in your car? Also, would you like your fries? Well, an animal style that requires a drug screening. Okay. Well, if it's good enough for in and out that I wanted to be good enough for legislatures. Legislators in Sacramento. No, I'm serious. Yes. I I want you to be tested for legal drugs, by the way, marijuana's no longer illegal. So you don't have to worry about that. What else? Do you do you need to tell John Cox? He needs to do that. If he ever actually gets into Sacramento. Okay. John Cox is on. We will talk about that. That's it about about an hour from right now, you just need to keep it right here on earth. Perfect. This was so we were talking earlier about the incivility, right?

"Women pay about seven dollars a month for forty years on tampons and sanitary napkins statewide. This adds up to over twenty million dollars annually in taxes. Think about twenty million dollars paid only by women in taxes over forty years. So state assemblywoman Cristina Garcia is trying to pass legislation to remove the tampon tax as gender equity issue. Arguing that tampons are not a luxury but in a subsidy, and instead they try instead they tried she and her fellow assembly people in California tried to increase the taxes on alcohol, hard, alcohol, not beer and wine. So like vodka whiskey etcetera to offset the revenue from Las taxes because everybody drinks, alcohol only people who have periods. Use mental hygiene products. So to recoup those loss of taxes so taxes it was all about money. Even though the Bill to eliminate the tampon tax was passed with support from both parties in California. The governor vetoed the Bill citing fiscal concern. So he was very concerned that he was going to be losing. And this is a this is a liberal governor was concerned that he was going to be losing too much money by eliminating tampon tax. So in the statement, the governor argued quote, each of these bills creates a new tax break or expands existing tax break. The governor also vetoed similar bills, including one to end attacks on baby diapers arguing that it would reduce state revenue by three hundred million dollars in the coming year. So. Yeah. They don't actually care about people. They only care about money particularly about people with China's. We or babe. I mean like, okay. So like people withdraw like not necessarily people Regina people who are caring for children who have to pay four children's diapers. Like, screw you pay the tax like this is a tax that affects both men and women. We'll know it affects babies, and it's an assessing for babies like come on come on. And this is why we have diaper banks in places like California where people can go to get free diapers for their children that somebody else paid somebody else pays the tax on them. So that they can be given to for free to people who need diapers for their babies. That's california. I couldn't hear you for a second. So I don't know what you talked about. I was ranting about about diaper. Okay. That's fine. That's fine. So the in addition to, you know, the the issue with taxes, we as I mentioned, we should really be thinking about how we can provide.
