"But today somebody sent me an article written by David Brooks and I thought I'd like to talk to you about it. So I sent you the horrifying story and maybe we can talk about it. Yeah, first of all, I'd like to say that I heard through the Grapevine from the journalistic friend a couple of years ago that David Brooks was discerning and drifting near evangelical Christian circles. Yeah. So maybe we should be careful and criticizing him. Be gentle and criticizing him. Keep in mind that David Brooks, I think, was also one of the journalists named as being in the bag for Hillary Clinton in the WikiLeaks file. So put those two things together in your head. And what this column by Brooks column. It's a 3000 word rent. What it tells me is no. David Brooks has not become a Christian and David Brooks will not become a Christian barring some kind of Damascus road miracle. Because David Brooks is like the young man who went away sad. Remember the young man who came up to Jesus and said, I followed along. Look how great I am. Am I going to go to heaven and Jesus said, yo, well, this case sounds like you're following the rules, but the young man insists. And then Jesus says, well, in your case, sell all you have and give it to the poor, and the young man goes. That interested in the kingdom of God and walks away sad.

Jonathan Capehart Says MAGA Movement Is 'More Worrisome' Than Foreign Terrorists

"To be talked to like adults. There is not a collective more that binds us together and the terrorists apart. There is a lot tearing us apart right now. You want evidence queue up for me Cut. Three. Jim. This is Jonathan Capehart, one of the dumbest guys on television. The only reason we put them in my dopey talking head Olympics because candidly nobody knows who he is. So it doesn't matter anyway. But occasionally he surfaces with some pearl of stupidity, not wisdom. And here's him this weekend on PBS or whatever. Was he on? Jim was a PBS usually, uh, PBS. See, Jim's always great. He actually puts it, I send them clips. I never put any details. He had poor guys to fill them in. So here's Jonathan Capehart on PBS with the ever hapless David Brooks from The New York Times who pretends to be a conservative, you know, shaking his head to an agreement with it, like Bozo the clown. Here's K part but the silliest man on television talking about how Maga Yeah, the Maga move, Make America great again. Moving is definitely more worrisome than the the terrorists. Check this out. I think, um Marga and the domestic terror threat is much more worrisome. Then any foreign threat we could face. And David Brooks is over there with his spectacles on going on. They have bozo the clown. I agree, uh, morons. And again you expect me to? It's going to let let's just throw cliche nonsense out there to an audience. I would have no respect for you at all. There's so much more to get back to 9 12. There's so much more that binds us here. No, there's not. No, there isn't No, there isn't cut the crap. Stop talking to people like they're idiots. Now there isn't anything I share in common with this moron Maga. People are more

The Trump 'clown-iverse' continues

"Another crazy waken US politics. Remember this. Now back they sure you. In fact, let people know Senator I'm not going to answer the question. Because the question. Just as radical left would you out Mason who is on your list? Not. Surprisingly, the media responds to the debate especially Donald Trump's plan rudeness it was overwhelmingly hostile wasn't it? Couple of days later, trump was diagnosed with code. After mixed messages about health trump got in a car and run around waving to supporters. Then he was released from hospital he returned to the White House and he went on one of those twitter rants among other things. He told the American people not covid even though he's doctor has said, he may not entirely be out of the woods yet. So, what does all this main awake after the debate and only weeks before the US presidential election and what does it mean for America's image in the world? For answers. Let's turn to a leading. American Common Taito a conservative who says he's quite sick of living in what he calls Donald Trump's clown verse or drama drivers over believers or I can't believe these guys actually the president. Verse. Brad. Stevens is a columnist with the New York. Times, and formally with the Wall Street Journal, where he won a Pulitzer Prize for opinion writing I should just warn you all that he comes to us via a scratchy on in Manhattan. Bread. Welcome back to the Shire. Back Be Sydney. Well, the rate is of the New York Times I can't wait to see the end of trump you yourself are prominent never trump you your New York Times columnist this week you say you was trump will give us just a few reasons why I wish a speedy recovery. I think to wish ill. To reduced to his level on that, of course, it's been. Core of the trump EST project which has been to based political norms and diminish moral standards. So why would I wanNA join trump along along that road a bit for more narrowly political reasons. I. Wish it well, because God forbid he were to die before the election, he would go down so to speak a undefeated. And what I hope is that a resounding electoral defeat in November and I'm speaking of the conservative. will put an end not only to the trump presidency, but she trumpism as a an ideological force. In American politics. Now. You rauch trump. The man needs to leave and lose because it's the only way the trump cult might die it unsubscribe to the cult trump obviously. Is that why you among that never trump was. Are exerting very little influence on the political right in America these days. You know I I hear that and. I was struck by the disconnect between my supposed- irrelevance and irrelevance might never trump fellow travelers. And the fact that the president. Describing us as human scum the conservative press keeps denouncing us if we're really quite so irrelevant, you think they want to go so much energy. Truth. Election that is probably going to turn on a small number of a relatively small number of voters in swing states, and so I think we're not quite so relevant have some people allege and stressed that never trump is include many prominent conservatives lock yourself William Kristol George Will Max Booed David. Brooks. David. From and Applebaum. Jennifer from there among others. But you see your critics would respond inside the Elat media consensus with there on the left or the never trump conservatives they've been consistently against trump wrought from that said. And Nights. I haven't you guys foul to understand what got America trump and indeed Britain brexit in the first place. You know. I'm not quite sure I agree with the analysis. Is and came about in part because there was unquestionably failure of the mainstream conservative establishment, which I guess I was park in recognizing some of the populous tides in American politics. I think it candidate for a much more specifically than which was a luxury crisis. In Europe, but went unchecked help create brexit brexit had knock on effects in the United States. As well, and and I would add a larger point com, which did you those who are listening here are left in any healthy democracy need a mortally healthy a conservative movement. There's no democracy that doesn't have a conservative side of politics. and. So even our adversaries are opponents politically should want us to succeed want a conservative movement that is optimistic that is inclusive that is in favor of growth, and that favors the open society and the free world. That's the way I can feel, okay my politics, they remained unchanged from the days before trump and hopefully will remain unchanged. Have said analysis requires us to listen attentively to individual voters tell us about your subject to Chris you right about her and you'll recent York Times call him. She's a registered Democrat and a trump voting lesbian store manager from Manhattan, and she fits none of the cultural demographic stereotypes of the trump by Brett tell us about Chris. Chris is a woman who is well educated. Well traveled and as you mention, she is She's gay and she the trump supporter and I one of the things that I I occasionally will be with my column in The New York Times. Is. Essentially. handed over not not fully. But at least partially handed over to Voice of that I think the predominantly liberal leadership of the Times. Need to could here because What she observed is that at least until the pandemic, her savings accounts or pension or private pension account for the United States a call four one ks. Arising smart. The economy was doing better in her view than it had been under Obama and that that's the counted for voters like her as opposed to you know questions about the president's mannerisms or read myths or his coarseness on the world stage and I wrote it Tom for the simple reason that Hillary Clinton would it become president? Her supporters hadn't been so convinced. That it was only a bunch of rednecks Yak. In the middle of the country, we're going to the trump. He is indeed and make the point. She's not an outlaw. She's a red voter in a blue state. My guest is Brit Stevens he's an award winning columnist with the New York Times. And we're talking about. Well, let's be frank. The crazy times in American politics. Let's turn to the debate bridge sixty years ago October nineteen sixty. The World Watch the Kenji Nixon debates we were too young. We went even. We weren't even born. To civilized will informed holly. Intelligent. Courteous Navy combat veterans are both in their forties. And yet six decades later. The world's being shocked and horrified. By the time of the first presidential debate these to all men engaging in A. An angry angry exchange is the best the both major parties can offer the American people sixty how's it come to these? You know when I was when my wife I ever watched, my wife has his permanent immigrants United States actually came a citizen. BECCA very. And I have to turn to her engine apologize for bringing her country because it was mortifying fortunately, the United States is a lot more than its leader. But debasement of politics has been long the making and it's one of many reasons why I just can't accept trump as president even though can time-to-time agreeing with his policies because he is he has brought the state about politics shoot a level that. Be chargeable to describe it as over Banana Republic and and you know onto. The Kennedy Nixon debates that I am are well enough to follow up one of the great issues that debate. The status of key Moi in Matsue, he's a little time with his island off the coast of mainland. Just unimaginable that piece to standard standard-bearers would have that kind of exchange although I. Walked by what Action Nowhere Chemo in that. So actually are. Yes you said that Donald Trump in that debate was channeling Alec Baldwin Channeling Donald Trump and yet he was holy himself. I get all that but is a more wrong with America than Donald, trump, Brad Stevens yet they're into lot more. You know I think Adam Smith Donald trump is a symptom of of some of that ruined but in seeking to an Australian audience I think it's worth remembering and reminding this audience that there could.

"The 9 11 trial was scheduled to begin in January in Guantanamo Bay. But NPR's Sasha Pfeiffer reports looks increasingly unlikely now that a new defense lawyer in the case says he needs 2.5 years to prepare. David Brooks. Past clients include Charleston, South Carolina, Church shooter Dylann Roof and one of the Boston Marathon Bombers. He's now the new lead attorney for Ramzi Bin Al Shibh, one of the five men charged in the September 11th 2001 terror attacks. He was appointed because his predecessor left the case. Brooke says an illegal filing He hasn't even met al sheep yet and faces hundreds of hours of work just reading more than 33,000 pages of hearing transcripts. He estimates it will take him at least 30 months to prepare for trial. That would be well after next year's 20th anniversary of 9 11 and the price tag of Guantanamo already more than $6 billion would continue to

Creating a Culture of Contribution with Tom Rath

"There's this crazy thing going on right now. The United States is filled with people that deeply want to care about the work that they do every single day and at the same time the United States is simultaneously filled with business owners. Who are desperately looking for people that care about the work that they do every single day. So why exactly? Can't we figure this out? Why can't we bridge this gap from the Ramsey network? This is the entree leadership podcasts. Where we help business leaders grow themselves their teams in their profits. I'm your host Alex Judd. And today we're talking to world renowned researcher and the best selling author of the new book. Life's great question. Tom Rath and in the mountains of data that he has collected on high-performing leaders teams in the workplace. He's found one very specific pattern a pattern. That could help bridge the gap between leaders and their teams. That pattern is an increased focus on contribution. Yeah you know one of the things that I realized pretty quickly as I started to look at the broad challenges that we face out there. Today in terms of the fundamental relationships people have with their work which on average across organizations are nowhere near as good as they could be one of the challenges. Is that There's just a huge misalignment between all of the individual talent. That's out there in the marketplace today. And what the world needs and so you know we've been pretty good over the last hundred. Two Hundred Years. It aligning products and services with what customers need. But we haven't made anywhere. As near as biggest strides in terms of matching individuals are with the demands that are out there in the workforce today. And what I realized as I dug deeper into this as we've done a pretty good job of helping people to understand their own talents there on passions and their own interests. But we really haven't done much with trying to determine what are all unique ways in which we can contribute to others lives in a real meaningful and productive way and you know I was deeply inspired by one of my favorite quotes from Dr Martin Luther King Junior and I something I asked myself. Every single day which was his famous quote about life's most persistent and urging question is. What are you doing for others boy? I think that's just a great way to Orient. Your Day orients your day around contribution and adding to things that will continue to grow in your absence. So that's what helped to focus a lot of this work powerful as you were saying that I was thinking about that John F. Kennedy. Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country. And it's amazing how The Martin Luther King Quote John F. Kennedy quote. There's something that when we hear that we kinda say that's right. That's what I need to be spending my time on and it's related to that topic of contribution so I'd like to know. How do you define that word contribution? Yeah you know it's interesting. I worked through a lot and was the first thing about. How do you help people to connect with a purpose or meaningful work which you hear a lot about it when I really got into the practical application of how do you get? People focused outward instead of inward every day and focused on how they're adding another person's contribution is really about the small bricks that you're adding to a wall over time essentially and it's more of the things that you're doing in the next hour today that might had to someone else's well being might inspire someone a day from now that in my case with my kids might contribute to their development and growth even five ten years down the road on days. When I'm not there helping so I think contribution I would define it as anything you do. That has a positive influence on another human being the continues to grow in your absence and those things usually start small and grow over time continues to grow in your absence. Why that Fraser? Why is that important as part of this definition? Well you know that's important to me from some of my own personal learnings. I talk in the opening of this book about how when I was sixteen years old. I was diagnosed with a real rare condition. I went blind in one eye. Because of it and doctors told me that I would be likely to have cancer. In my kidneys and pancreas and spine over whatever course of a life. I might live and I've battled cancer and all those areas and I bring that up because what it did was even from that young age over the last twenty five years. It got me very focused on. What are all the that I can work on this afternoon? Then we'll continue to grow tomorrow week from now year from now and eventually when I'm gone and what I've learned that experience there is you know it may sound kind of morbid from the outset but when you start to think like that it really does get you focused on more productive efforts during the day and things that you can feel good about tomorrow and many years from now and he gets you focused on what I would call or what I think I David Brooks talked about this about a year ago New York Times Column More Eulogy Values instead of things that go on a resume that are more sterile and tactical so it almost sounds like you're talking about like a mindset or an attitude for leaders but also just for individual team members is this mindset developed like do you have to go through a life altering transformative experience like you did to change your mindset or is it learned or how can we build up this kind of way of looking at the world that contribution is the first thing that we're thinking about. Yeah you know. I think it's like a lot of habits is a great question because it's in my experience in working with people working layers. It's bill with repetitions and it's built one day at a time and if you can step back and say in the next three hours what could you do? Even for fifteen or twenty minutes that would make a meaningful contribution to the growth and development of one other human being whether that's someone who looks to you for leadership whether that's a customer whether that's a family member just taking that daily focus is what helps you to build cumulative days that are better and better as time goes on and you know the other thing. I've learned that's been. I'm through this project in the last year with the book and the website around contribution is the more time you can allocate. That's directed outward toward contribution to others in meaningful efforts during the day. It actually minimizes a lot of the normal stressors that we have with all the things flying at us and all the pressures and demands of the day. And the more time you spend looking inward it actually leads to more insecurities more stress in the like where when you can anchor. Even a few of your efforts outward it takes a lot of that pressure off in the process. That's pretty remarkable. And I love that you talk about it as a habit because that sounds like something I can take action on. That sounds like something I can control. That sounds like something. Every leader can invest their time into. So what is the practical action? People can take daily or maybe even hourly to just start moving their mind towards an attitude and a posture of contribution. Yeah I think that's where it starts. It starts with bringing the humanity back into the work that we do on a daily basis and having conversations about it with our team members because one of the things that I realized when I got into. This is every time we sit down as a team to start a new effort instead of looking at other members of the team joining the group and saying what's there background. What is their resume. Look like what's their bio. What's their job description? We need to sit down and have a more personal conversation about who we are and why we do what we do each day. So that's why as part of this book. I put together a resource for people where they can go through and say. What are the big roles you play in life so for me? That's being a dad and a husband and a researcher and sometimes a writer and what have been the most influential life experiences that have shaped by what I do and so if you sit around and talk about that as a team had helped to bid and then maybe most importantly anytime you bring a group of people together or the whether that's two or three or five or fifteen people if each person can go around and say how do I think I can make a unique contribution of this team because so often we all get excited about something and we're just off and running without even having a discussion to make sure that each of us feels like we can make a meaningful contribution and we're doing that in complementary ways instead of ways that essentially overlap and it takes six months to realize. Oh we were all doing the same thing

"Just looking at some of the different stories are I see the headlines David Brooks on PBS I am struck Dershowitz in store join the trump defense chef will walk all over them now which made us ask the question is crack now of benefits it's extended to employees at PBS I I guess that's me you know like some offices have a candy bowl at the front I think I have a cracked wall with a crack pipe you know as you walk in to do your job because that's there's been a lot of stupid things that have been sad I'm not sure Adam Schiff has said anything that stupid I have to go back and look but that's definitely the the the craziest thing ever in the last five minutes but it it's it's some it's ludicrous Adam Schiff is gonna walk all over Alan Dershowitz yeah I right so busy over the weekend and and just saw so much somebody wrote a column that that expressed exactly what we said when you know net and Nancy is celebrating impeachment in this is a great victory for them and this is a stain on the president because as the president that's been in page in the impeachment will always stay with them and I forgot I made the point that we made was said not won't because what matters is not whether your impeached what matters is the substance behind it whether have substance to the charges if the substance of the charges isn't there then it will be viewed as in a court as history will show you were railroaded yeah right it's that simple yep and and so it is always the the the head and this is where you get to the Democrats were again and there's been quite a few articles written about Nancy with the pens over the weekend and celebration in you know handing out souvenirs yeah for it this is where imagery to the Democrats is everything and substance is nothing yeah that's another example right well since we had the majority we were able to all get together and state that he did wrong doing even though it's bogus and will be gone let's celebrate it okay well here's the thing you know I mean I I look at the fist bump with bill Maher was so stupid because she didn't get anything done they keep the liberals keep playing this as if it's a scarlet letter yeah it's a it's a it's a letterman's jacket it's he's a varsity star player he's wearing that like a high school letterman's jacket not anything like a scarlet letter you think the left thinks that it's it's going to be it's going to brand him forever no it's not it isn't especially if he wins in November if he wins in November the first impeached president ever to win reelection whoa wow because remember when was essentially on his way out the door that was ninety nine before the two thousand election so you know that that wasn't going to Bill Clinton it's not that that he was proud of that you know he he lost his ability to practice law but he wasn't going to practice law after a two term president anyway and he was acquitted in the Senate but you look at the that you look at this president you talk about firing up his face because scorched earth you know if we were in the age of the core M. respect for the process then I I just might I just might agree that this is going to be something that brands the president in a negative light we're not scorched earth dictates that he's going to grab that big I and he's going to carry it probably to every rally there is in fact he did after we said he should hold an impeachment rally he did just that eight days that night vice president pence was on the Mike and chill right after the vote they waited for the vote to clear until the pro is so the president could come out that's that's how orchestrated that was well it's interesting on the the one sided feud in the celebrant Tory way that we got him whatever that whatever that means but we got him right he has his political you know scarlet letter attached to him and the other side he's got his badge of courage yeah it's really amazing the it is a political times that we that we live in right now but there's more legitimacy that it's a badge of courage yeah because it's like they've got nothing on you well and and so you're wearing this you're just again this is something that is an honor because it shows how desperate the Democrats are and that's why this whole thing over the last couple of days while the impeachment will stay with him forever actually it'll stay on you forever yeah it will as a bogus impeachment based on the substance of the articles of impeachment and not just labels you know over the weekend to they were they kept repeating how this fall this is so partisan this trial is going to be so part of really and the impeachment process in the house wasn't no that was bipartisan remember yeah the other way and remind reminded me of a van Jones and and twenty sixteen during the interim period van Jones is rolling up his sleeves at the grassroots effort to convince the electors to to vote differently by the way that that case going to the Supreme Court thank you yeah bring that up which is a nice segue yeah I meant that on purpose but a it's it's some but it was bogus and then it ended up in his favor actually the net result was that she had a loss and he actually gained a like doors right and so right everybody is not on van Jones fade out yes yes yes yes yes and the doctor much goes in the van Jones is favor other than his check is still cashing from CNN but the the whole our idea of them getting burned every time they throw something Adam and it just bounces back it's the boomerang the boomerang effect can't be denied it will be interesting to see in this hearing on on the what what they call it the spoiled elect or basically disenfranchised elect orders the elect or have to vote the way the state voted it'll be interesting to hear the back and forth on that it is I can't wait that set I know that's one a long talk but yeah right weird but yeah I I'm fascinated to see here you know how what we know what what just the arguments that are made of you know for that right plus contraception also they agreed to take the yeah the night so it's going to be interesting to see on those two and I'm glad they've they've taken both of those issues maybe the Supreme Court will just say that the electoral college is unconstitutional even though it's in the constitution yes right Democrat will get their way well I mean I I fully expect the Democrats to at some point bring a case to say that the constitution is unconstitutional I mean I don't know why they haven't tried that yet they really do want to throw it out except for the Fifth Amendment they want everything else gone let's head to add to you we go to Michael in Denver Michael welcome you're in but I ready to welcome to the show hi that was in the almost every night your great thank you really good so anyway before I get to my point rob is going to have a rally in Iowa on the thirty first of January kind of stage of when I heard someone will he's got any he has you mean I'm stage the Democrats before the be before the Iowa caucuses yeah yeah on which would be which would be on Monday I'd look I expect that the day that he is the whatever day that the this trial ends and he is either I'll quit it or the the charges are dismissed expect there's going to be a there's going to be a huge rally I thank you will have a post trial rally to yeah that same day yeah I think so alright here's why I called the Democrats they know they can't remove him and I think their play is to lie and cry into the in tar and feather the Senate just you know to try to get the Senate back can cripple Donald Trump in his second term with the by getting back to Senate putting some senators and some no win situations are center in Colorado he's kind of between a rock and a hard spot you know because Colorado's kind of blue and I think he's vulnerable and I think their place to get the Senate back by lying and crying and said it was a corrupt cover up and the Republicans are all inclusive each other but it works out but it works out but it works the opposite way too because as we have seen that if you are in a blue state or a purple state as they like to call it that if you are a senator who is worried about were independents are going independence looked at what happened in the house and said we don't like that and it was by a pretty significant margin and so if you look at it and say that you know that of course everything is political so Democrats are looking at it but also sore Republicans yeah and if you vote for these bogus charges independence aren't buying it no and there is no new evidence it's going to be submitted now now that now it's.

"Was reading from a piece by David Brooks in the New York Times called five lies culture tells I kind of walk through a couple of them crew successes. Fulfilling can make myself happy life as an individual journey. There's there's other ones how about this one. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger? Well, the reality is it may not kill you could actually make you weaker in a lot of people would attest that one. Here's here's one that year alone, the grass is always greener on the other side. You don't understand it? We don't know what issues problems situations, our neighbors or friends are dealing with. We just assume everything they do is fantastic. The kids are doing well. They're working fine. I think their life is good. But we don't ever know that classic example the happiest person in the world. Then you read a headline a couple of weeks later that person committed suicide we don't know what's going on. And the other one is time heals all wounds time doesn't heal anything. Especially a wound in many wounds are so so significant without some intervention or some help people don't ever recover for them. So it's just those perceptions that we have about what's important. What's not important? And I think as we start to think about relationships how we deal with each other. Relationships between generations. And I understand this is kind of an esoteric subject. Right. It's. Now a lot of people dig that deep. Maybe we should maybe we should try to figure these things out. So that maybe we can understand why people are walking into synagogues and killing other people or why people are arming themselves to the to the teeth and blowing up. Wherever schools places of work. It's one of those things that you have to think the the headlines when you look at cultural. Norms and standards. It's not always true that if you work hard you'll succeed. Hard work is hard. We get that not everybody is a great worker. We know that. But at some points figuring out the complexity of what the world is about understanding there's other things beyond ourselves. Remember, I talked about earlier in the show the selfishness of drivers. Could have done a whole hour on that the fact that people are so wrapped in their own cocoon. They don't even think about what's going on beyond themselves. Why people lash out on social media? How does this affect me? How does this candidate affect my life their policy suggestions, how do they impact? What I do. That's become the direction of our country. And maybe at least if you believe David Brooks, then we should stop listening to some of these. Sayings and cultural miss just look at it in a different way. And I guess that's the point. Hey, this is not as serious, but I was just thinking about this. So did you parents ever trick? You let's say if they said something like let's say like my parents said oh, an apple a day will keep the doctor away. Did you believe that? No, no, even as little kid like you wouldn't fall for that. Maybe it's a very small in apple I like apple. So there wouldn't be a hard sell for me. But if you didn't like your parents to them, maybe it could work. Well, my bolt get us. When my parents did ends, you know what I didn't want those shots. So I'm like I'm eating as Minneapolis as I can. So it will have to go to the doctors off as you still eat the apples. Oh, of course. I do. There you go, and that's from Jordan illustrious producer, Mark from Bristol mortgage, talk and text line, the one my first boss told me when I was fourteen you never have time to do it. Right. The first time that you always have time to do it. Right. The second time I wish I would have applied that's in my life right there. And then the older I get it just becomes more. True. There's one that actually makes sense interesting discussion, I wasn't gonna spend a lot of. Time on it. But I I was intrigued by the piece by David Brooks in the New York Times five lies, our culture tells and. I don't think he's far off the Mark there. All right after the break. I'll tell you about sleuth a service. This is our last week of nominations for we start kicking off the month of may with our salute to service honoring those men and women in the name it first responders police fire EMC's dispatchers sheriff state patrol.

"Seven forty two in the morning, and whenever you can play ACDC at lead into cease square. You know, it's going to be a good day. That's all there's to it. If you're interested in joining us will open to the phone lines now at five to one eighty three d three focus on your calls and questions thoughts survey shins even reactions to the Mola report being released yesterday and the assault. This is one thing and we'll get to Chris's personal thoughts as well. I think the indictment in the public domain. Of a bar is absolutely shameful and the commentary being made by some on the airwaves both radio television at cetera. Chris is such a horrific disservice. People wonder why some of the best and brightest just simply don't want to engage in public service degree more. I mean, I billboard record he served. He was AG for George H W Bush. He's a man of incredible integrity. And if you look at what he's done since he took office in particular the with the report and how he is managed. I dare anybody any democrat any democratic operative who show where he has done something that is against the law or that is not been consistent with president which is not been consistent with Justice department policy and the attacks received, and particularly the the the media bashing that he has gone through as a show for the. President. He's guarding the president his reputation is studied and ruined down to Jerry Nadler, and the others who who are calling him out in such strenuous terms disservice to them that he's actually doing the job. He was hired to do. Exactly the way it was supposed to be done. I'd like to perhaps we'll do a compare and contrast between holder, Jerry. We're dialing together with C square. Jim downtown you're on with C score. Good morning. Jim. Morning. I would like to refer everyone would to the David Brooks article that in this way, I feel about it's not about collusion. I never really thought that would fly even though all Manafort, Roger stone and Donald Trump junior. We're talking to the Russians, but I never saw clear, but it's the corruption. That's what the Brooks article is about and I don't think there's going to be any impeachment at all because they're gonna be an election in eighteen months or so and. If you recall, he did Lou Trump did lose the popular vote. I mean, he wanna majority of the electrical the electoral college, of course. But I think we'll just I think they're Democrats are going to settle for trying to knock him out in the next election. Yes. That's about. Here. That's right. Jim. Excellent. Thank you very much for the call. Are you familiar with Brookes article gyms referring to square? I am not. But I I'm familiar with the sentiment because it's been something I've seen from supposedly right-leaning or center, right columnists. And actually, I think I would I would paraphrase having seen it to say that in this instance, the conduct that the the the report outlines this win at all costs culture that was in the Trump campaign. I can safely say this is something that you would never see in a traditional Republican campaign. They would know not to talk to foreign governments. They would know not to have a active project where you're soliciting bids. We're trying to get a foreign power hostile to the United States ought to do a hotel deal at the same time that you're running for president those are basic fundamental things that go to the heart of of the way President Trump acts as president. And when you look. Look at the issues with regard to obstruction while they don't rate they don't rise to the issue of obstruction. We see serially over and over again efforts to marginalize minimalized, and and tell falsehoods about what was going on which we would normally not expect from from our elected leaders. We would expect more than what the standard is right now that we expect somebody to do more than simply not be a criminal. And I think that there's some there's some justification to that in terms of the way the White House is worked the inexperience of the Trump team in both running a campaign, an ultimately staffing and running administration. So and most of it goes to the cabinet himself who didn't properly understand the constraints on the power and the office when he was running for president. Before we take our final break. I'm going to highlight and get your brief response to four points that appeared in the New York Times that they say are the moments that were of most drama number one. This is the end of my presidency. Chris if you were hearing about a special counsel with the history of special counsels. Why not that doesn't prove anything? The president kept sessions resignation letter in his pocket. Okay. Presidential perogatives and backed everybody should have a letter on file with the president that he can use anytime that he wants. Mcgovern, the lawyer who took notes. Yeah. The president clearly doesn't understand that one particular piece and Mcgann talked honestly about the fact that he was told the fire Muller, and then told tell them about it. And so again was honest, president didn't agree. You know, I expect more. But that's the way we rolled out seven four eight in the morning. Finally, according to the New York Times is one of the four moments in awkward dinner date, referring to the president inviting James Komi to dinner in January two thousand seventeen. This was cited in the report your thoughts. Yeah. That's been discussed for over a year and a half. I mean, I thought early on that they may indicate that there was something going on Mike Flynn that the president wanted to keep quiet. But really when you have no underlying collusion. The if anything it was just from trying to make sure that is chief law enforcement officer at the FBI was was looking for his interest and wasn't willing to commit to that. Because of his idea public service celebrates is a name that came up. But in this particular story is relevant because wasn't she she was either temporary or what have you, and she's the one who said, I think Flynn may not be telling the truth. The acting attorney general before sections was confirmed and had learned from intercepts US intercepts of Russian the Russian ambassador that that's wasn't being honest. And she went over to go to the White House counsel's office about it, which was essentially trapped for Flynn. I'm going to take our final break, Chris. And I'm going to speed it up as much as I can. So we can get back with cease choir special edition was he square today on this. Aloha Good Friday. We'll be back with Chris moment. Traffic.

"I never realized that's another woman. These revelations that happens later in life. I never realized. How many people are seduced by style. And that style is more important to them than the moral outlook of a human being. It's it's another one of these realizations. The. About flawed humanity. This David Brooks piece of this mayor of south bend, Indiana. Who's now number three in the democrat poll. The Democrats poll in Iowa. He he's he's nice. He's game and married to a man. So he has conservative values because he got married. What does I wonder what vista Brooks would think about a gay, man? I mean, I know such people there, I know people you could read about them as well. There are gays who have a lifelong partner, but who don't marry because they believe that marriage should be between a man and a woman. I know. This sounds amazing to LGBTQ activists whose narcissism does not allow for such thinking among gay people. But there are people take religion seriously and don't believe that marrying the same sex. Is what their religion would countenance. So anyway, but that's that's that's truly secondary the primary issue, even if the judge were heterosexual would make any difference to me. The the issue is that he has just he's a he's a quiet style. But he's as leftist dissolve a leftist running. Why doesn't that matter to David Brooks? Why does that not matter? Why does it matter that he's nice? An entire civilization is at risk because of leftism this man is a leftist. But he's nice. He was in the navy. He was a Rhode scholar. He was at Harvard. You have no idea. I do. I do. I I grew up in the world of the David Brooks. I know it. It's the intellectual Jewish liberal world of the of the east coast. I grew up in it. I left it in my twenties when I moved to California, and I know like, I know anything in life. And I rejected it at a very early age. I didn't give a damn about the Ivy league. Even though I ended up at an Ivy league graduate school. I didn't give a damn about it. I none of this stuff meant anything. Are you are you are you personally a good person? And do you have good values? To this day. Those are what matter to me. It's just an amazing thing is a really nice guy. Yeah, he's his left wing is the other leftist. So he's nice Elizabeth Warren. He's a nice Kamala Harris, he's a nice Bernie Sanders. Why does that do any less destruction to America? Then the not nice version. I don't get it. Not not all of you. Will remember John F Kennedy junior? But the left the liberals not just left. Brooks is not a leftist liberal. Or liberal in some ways conservative. But these these people when crazy for John F Kennedy junior who's extremely handsome, and it was John Kennedy, son. And. Is not meant to knock me. He was nothing special. Most people have nothing special in terms of the contribution to society, large the way, we become specialists contribution, we make to our community in our family that that's how we're we're special. And I mean that then you really are special. I'm meet special people all the time. And none of them are well known. But among the well-known John F Kennedy junior or John Kennedy, jR, was not special. But when when he died. It was a major national figure of renown had died. Style folks yet style. That was a big part of the appeal of John F Kennedy, by the way it appealed to me. I was a little kid, but it appeal to me handsome area. Die funny. Witty all of these things. The deepest people. I know I'm not writing at the New York Times. Let's put it that way. There are some who. Brit. Stephens has some very important things on occasion, David Brooks is Britain. But this is disappointing. Guys, got style. But he's got Elizabeth Warren's views, we're ready. Oh, okay. Prager seven seven six. This was what the endeared them in many ways to to Barack Obama. He had style. His his speeches were the empty speeches. I believe perhaps in presidential history. Barack Obama speeches I analyzed. Like. Exegesis on the bible, I analyzed about twenty five of his talks over the course of his presidency. On the air. Okay. Like so many of us you probably have the same landline. Telephone number. You've had for many years. It's.

Resigned. But he's saying that shoe polish and his team smeared him about this in order to prevent his ascension to the throne. I tend to believe Lieutenant governor Justin Fairfax is probably more to the left, by the way than the governor has. But Nevertheless, I don't think he actually did this to a woman while we know with our own is that the governor himself appeared in black face and a Ku Klux Klan robes. So that guy doesn't belong in office. This guy is not guilty of anything. It's a smear job. That's the way it's played. Okay. Eight five five four hundred seven two eight two is the phone number. There's some other stories haven't yet gotten to that are very important. I know you're not interested in the war in Afghanistan. Because most of you have no boys overseas.

For those of you want to raise taxes on the rich governor Andrew Cuomo said yesterday that state income tax revenues plummeted by nearly two point three billion dollars because he drove high tax payers out of the state of New York. Cuomo true to the revenue drop in December January laws to new federal tax, code, etc. Two point three billion dollar drop in revenues that the governor can't give away as vigorous was most important friends. Governor Cuomo had planned to spend one hundred seventy six billion dollars in the new fiscal year that starts April one but much of the impact of loss is coming in a drop in revenues from the state's highest income earners most impacted by the loss of write offs of state and local tax deductions known as essay LT.

Ex-Trump adviser Roger Stone indicted in Mueller probe

"A few hours later before a Florida judge stone was indicted on seven counts, including obstruction of an official preceding making false statements and witness tampering all the charges stem from special counsel, Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the two thousand sixteen election outside the court stone vowed to fight the charges. Okay. So let's dig into what those charges are. And what they may reveal about the Malar invest. Education to do that. I am joined now by Jennifer dascomb. She was a Justice department lawyer in the Obama administration. She now teaches at American University school of law. Jennifer good to have you here. Thank you. So your take on the central question of how this indictment may advance. Our understanding of what happened between Donald Trump and his campaign and Russia. So in a lot of ways the indictment confirms what's already been known. But it does so in a very detailed and diligent way, highlighting the great number of channels of communication between the Trump campaign and WikiLeaks WikiLeaks, of course, was the recipient of Clinton campaign communications that we know were stolen by Russia. There's a line that's drawing a lot of attention and kind of clue that's dangled. This is page. Four of this twenty four page document. It's referring to July twenty sixteen in. It describes a senior Trump campaign official who was directed to contact stone about releases to to WikiLeaks. What we don't know. Is who directed a senior Trump campaign official. We assume Bob Muller knows right? We assume that Molinos than we think that I mean, this looks like another building block in in. What is increasingly looking like, a pretty strong collusion case. It's it's not a smoking gun. But it is another very solid building block that shows that a senior Trump campaign official was was directed to context stone. The Trump campaign was involved. It was active. It was working via stone to to learn about an potentially coordinate to some extent that the dumps that that were ultimately released other emails when you say, a strong collusion case, let me push you on that. We had David Brooks of the New York Times in the studio earlier, and he said to him. The takeaway is that the president then candidate may have surrounded himself with a lot of questionable people. However, would they have needed to go through all of the things that this? Indictment lays out as you say in great detail. If there really were a direct channel street to the Kremlin. So there's there's collusion doesn't necessarily mean that there's a direct channel straight to the to the Kremlin. There's there's other means of establishing collusion. And this again is a is one building block that shows a lot of different connections that that lead back to the Kremlin. And ultimately, I mean, we have to wait and see what molar ultimately produces. But you're seeing I think a very careful building structure of of what may very well be a collision case at the end of this. So did we learn anything today in your view that tightens the web around the president himself? So there's nothing here that leads directly to the president necessarily again, we're there's language about a senior Trump campaign official. There's other language in the statement about senior campaign. Trump officials, and so it certainly suggests that people that were very close to Trump if not Trump himself knew a lot of what was going on. But again, there's nothing in here that specifically leads directly. Back to Trump and based on your close read what does this indictment? Tell us about the direction that Muller and his team are heading again. I think they're they're building. A very careful case there this is now the six Trump advisor charged. It's building a real web and at suggesting some some potential collusion, at least coordination and next shoe to drop a miniature said, this is this is the sixth who's who's left of significant stature and interest. But who has not yet been indicted or charged or cleared? So, you know, it's it's it's impossible to predict we don't know for sure. But of course, Bannon's around Miller's around there's there's other folks that are still out there that may have information, and we've just got to wait and see. All right. That's Jennifer dascomb. She worked in the Justice department under President Obama. She now teaches constitutional and national security law at American University. Jennifer Daska, thanks for stopping by. Thank you.

Yeah. Yeah. Wow. Interesting. One guy published it up until he died. He published it for about forty years until he died. Years, and then it's no longer needed. So in the sense like like nineteen sixty four is when they quit publishing. Got it for them. Oh, no. I can't wait to see the movie. Thank you, Bob. You learn something every day. Here's a David Brooks his opinion back to this coverage. And they'll get a lot of pushback because I'm saying, I don't even know what I'm saying anything that profound. Social media has created this mob mindset, good friend of mine who sends me some emails once in a while during the show, and I pay close attention to him because he's in the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex. And it's a good friend of mine. And he said, listen, you know, scorched earth is how the Democrats play ball. That's how we got here. We'd better get serious and stop trashing our own. And I can't I can't agree with that more. I that is the that is the most important part of this. If we don't start showing unity, if we're not unified in the fight against the Alexandria, a causE', oh Cortez's of the world. We're doomed. I mean, we already saw a great defeat in November. Because we're going to be in for a bloodbath. This year, a pervert Buell bloodbath in in twenty one thousand nine hundred with the Democrats running the house of representatives. They're going to be investigating every aspect of the Trump family. They're going to investigate investigate investigate. Of course, we have to fight and I'm not saying don't fight. I think my concern with this whole Covington story has been. The battle over social media. When people think they have the power to destroy somebody's life online. That's a problem. That's a problem because it's one thing to try to destroy somebody. It's another to do it David Brooks over the New York Times. And I'm not a big David Brooks fan. He's the kind of conservative who, you know, passes muster at the New York Times. And his is opinion piece is called how we destroy lives to how we destroy lives today. He writes, the institutions in charge of serving these boys did what institutions always do in the face of a social media mob. They cratered the school at archdiocese apologized for these kids, the mayor of Covington denounced them, but then on Sunday several logger videos emerged showing that most of what the the native American had told the media was inaccurate. The incident actually started when members of the hate call the black Hebrew Israelites started hurling, racist and homophobic, slurs at the boys, and I've seen these guys th they stand sometimes on the corner they stand in the middle of Times Square. There. A scary scary bunch a lot of times they're holding clubs and what looked like weapons and crowbars they wear these militaristic garb with chains around. I mean, it's scary stuff. And they were the ones that were apparently berating these kids for a long period of time. David Brooks says everybody involved in the. And it was operating in an emotional and moral context that had been set by the viciousness of the black Hebrew Israelites of the major players. The boys behaviors probably the least egregious. So Sunday was a day of conservative. Vindication. See this is what those liberals do they rush to judgment dehumanized. Seek to expunge us from national life. The main boy wrote a public letter that was consistent with the visual evidence. And it was actually quite humane in this case rights, David Brooks, the facts happen to support the right wing tribe. But that's not the point the crucial thing is that the nation's culture is now a meshed it a new technology that we don't yet know how to control in. This technology stereotype is more salient than persons in this technology. A single moment is more important than a life story in this technology. A main activity is proving to the world that your type is morally superior to the other type he writes, the Covington case was such a. Blatant rush to judgment. It was powered by such crude prejudice and social stereotyping. I'm hoping it will be an important pivot point. I'm hoping that at least a few people start thinking about norms of how decent people should behave on these platforms. It's hard to believe that people are gonna continue forever on platforms where they are shocked cruel to one another. He writes, it's hard to believe that people are going to be content year after year to distort their own personalities in service to a platform, making themselves humorless semi blind joyless and grim doesn't he have a point isn't David Brooks on point with this article that lives are being destroyed on all sides of the aisle, eight hundred six five five Mike eighteen minutes before the hour. We continue from the shot show in Las Vegas are sixth annual visit in a row. Hey, joe. Thanks for hanging in there with sure welcome to. Vegas. How are you? Oh, pretty good. Sorta using your own theory. I heard yesterday you saying do you think the Democrats whether President Trump? Declares emergency on the wall funding. And you said you think in two thousand twenty whatever the Democrats. Oh, yeah. He didn't do it there. Then right now. Exactly. Okay. The story lives. I'm not saying give out addresses. What I'm saying is. You know, what's wrong, if somebody if a if you said something wrong, they would go and boycott you, and they would say, you know, don't don't buy whatever advertisement on this show. What right. Going to them and the ones, and I'm saying the ones you say all some of my friends, you were I put the judge. Will you have walked back and said, hey, you know, these kids didn't do anything wrong. And if they're truly deserve in. They had their platform. They would say, Harry, I was wrong. But I mean, let me go to that point. Gotcha. Know. I gotcha. Gotcha. Whatever that's there. Are we have to band together and fight fire with fire? You know, it's not just. Sit back. We've always sat back are the Senate the house, they always get back and let the Democrats will happen. You know, now, we can't do anything. We don't ever stand up for a thousands and in. I think people are just getting sick of it. Can I can I respond? You ready? That's all right. No, no. You're fired up. But I get it. I don't wanna get no way. 'cause you're on you're on a roll. And I like it because number one I agree with almost everything you said, you're you're talking about accountability. And I get it. I say it all the time on the show. There's gotta start being accountability for people who are destroying people's lives. And it typically comes from the left. I get it. And and I do believe that we have to fight back hard. But let's go back to what you just said about one of my colleagues or actually there been more than one. You're right. I don't know what the fear is. Or the reluctance is to apologize. People should be saying, hey, I got this wrong. I I mean, I should never have trashed these kids and I was wrong in doing. So there are some some friends of mine who aren't really willing to do that. And some of them are being written about now online, and it's too bad. There's nothing wrong with saying I blew it. Listen, I don't know about you Joe Friday night when I first saw the coverage that was the conclusion I came to I thought oh my gosh. Why did those kids do that? I had no reason to believe it was anything other than the way the media was portrayed. So everybody kind of jumped the gun based on the corrupt news media show. Now, we find out it wasn't the way it was portrayed. And guess what? Now, there's a lot of now there's a lot of reckoning going on. I'm not I'm not disagreeing with you about the need to fight. I'm not. But I'm with you. You said let's not destroy people's lives. Let's not docs people. Let's not give out addresses. Let's not let's not shame people into losing their their their their everything if they you know, they're swept up at all of this. And they're kind of they're kind of part of this process. You know what I mean? I guess I always believe our side wins because we're right? Our side wins because we're truthful our side wins because we use facts, and we're we're not we're not like them. We're we don't we don't want to. We don't want to get somebody hurt. We don't want to hurt anybody. We just want accountability. Does that make sense? That makes sense. Okay. All right. Well, that's easy. Thank you, sir. I didn't mean to shut you down. But I know you're at such a role, and I just didn't want to get in your way their fifteen minutes before the hour. Eight hundred six five five Mike, what should porn to acknowledge is that these guys have crossed the line. They crossed the line in the way, they come after conservatives, let's face it. I said this yesterday the two biggest reasons these kids were targeted number one. They're at a pro life March. They're at a March that is so honorable and so wonderful and so uplifting. Thousands and thousands of Americans who March on Washington every year. For the unborn for the innocent an event that has never covered by the media. The mainstream media doesn't give a Rach rear end about the March for life. And that's what these young boys from Covington Catholic were doing. So that's the first reason they were hated second reason some of them were we're in Maga hats. Oh my gosh. You were maga- hat. You're you're a monster. And that's what's so sickening about this whole story. Eight hundred six five five Mike thirteen minutes before the hour. How about the latest back and forth on the wall is the is the proverbial wall of the part of the Democrats starting to crack a bit are Democrats, recognizing there's gonna be a wall, and you agree with me the president's gonna have to declare a national emergency to get it. We'll see what you think. Eight hundred six five five Mike call or text were streaming live streaming the show from the shot show in Las Vegas. Go to Mike online dot com. Welcome.

He starts his show with his take on one topic in what the mainstream news is getting wrong. Or what context is being missed. And then he goes into a deep analysis in conversation with his guest or guests of the week and get this. His guests have included Judd appetito, Bernie Sanders and Hassan montage. So he kinda covers the gamut. I would say in terms of who you might be expelled. Acting. It's everyone from comedians to politicians to for instance, stiff on Clark's fiance. So you're gonna hear from a lot of different people and the show is covered such topics as the violence in Gaza from the perspective of Israeli activists against the occupation. And of course, police shootings as through the eyes of the fans say of Stephen Clarke, also he's talked about the dangers of John Bolton with former diplomats as a Brit and a Muslim an immigrant based Donald Trump's Washington DC Midi Hassan gives a refreshingly provocative perspective on the ups and downs of American and global politics deconstructed show that cuts through political drivel and media misinformation to give you a straight take on one. Big news story of the week. It is out every Friday just like this pod. You can listen and subscribe at the intercept dot com slash deconstructed or any podcast platform. I'm glad you. Qualified that this book is sort of for the newly woke the alarm clock. Just went off the air now away because there was a part of me reading this that I was like, wow, you're giving a lot of amunition to the David Brooks is of the world who I do think. Who have their own kind of very powerful megaphones and influence, and I think for instance, the people like my husband who actually totally newly woke comb flea. Newly woke he's the kind of person that's like system to the argument that David Brooks is making because David Brooks had basically making argument looking at the extremes of culture and saying see it's bad. So let's not do it. But that's not a exactly what we should take away from some of these extremes. No, my my argument is always nuance. Right. Like you have to decide for yourself. What's what you can handle what's appropriate for you? It's the to go back even delicate reaches the Romans fourteen. Broach of of saying that you you feel what it out what's appropriate for you. You feel out what you can handle and stuff, and you find trusted voices that you can follow in that. And when something problematic comes up where it's something very serious or something you can join in that call out culture and stuff, but you don't want to make that the entirety of your feminism. I feel like one lesson that I wanna say to people who see culture as an example of of over correction, and therefore we should abandon its funny people who who who critique the left always see over correction as proof that we should just abandon the project entirely. Unlike like capitalism, they're like over correcting will this just tinker the inker on the edge is with capitalism. No is that. We should always be asking ourselves who had something to lose had something to gain by doing the call out. And that's one of the reasons why I always grown when people like David Brooks Jonathan Chait and all those people do these essays about call up culture because it's always a white old dude in the establishment. He has a lot to lose if call out culture finally gets to him, right? As i've. So they're always writing position of fear where they are like, well, what if this one thing happens in its twisted, and people don't believe me, and whatever it's the it's the man who gets afraid of being accused of a false rape Alec allegation or something like that. And where they have a lot to lose in that situation. Whereas the women doing the call out. Depending on what where they are in relationship to the man often are trying to do their feminism crash. Right. And make sure that like the people that have the make phones are the people who should have megaphones like we look to the James Gunn example again. And like those are people who did not have anything to lose my making doing this call out they were trying to inflict damage on someone who they actually saw as an ally, social Justice. Yeah. There for wanted to make him go away. Yeah. Those horrid s j ws, and I also feel like I want to make very clear to people who are in the position of kind of newly raised consciousness that you will get called out. Because soon as you kind of make public to the world in any way that is is available. Whether it's, you know, wearing a pussy hats or announcing on Twitter that you're feminist or however, it is in your social circle that it works out that you have present now claimed the identity of someone who cares about these things. There will be a time that someone tells you fallen short. Yes, it is. There is no way to exist in this world as someone who cares about social Justice and not. Do something quote wrong. Yeah. Especially if you are like much of the hashtag, resists people a white cysts het woman as if you haven't rich also. Yeah. Speaking. You have much. Less to lose a lot of in in in a lot of ways because you have all this privilege and software as where I as a queer woman and stuff have had to look at things differently for a long time. And if had noticed these things, whereas you are just beginning to train yourself to walk in another person's shoes, and what I kind of feel like people need to hear who are in that position. Is you will get called out and just because culture occasionally goes too far that doesn't mean when it really hurts. You can't listen. But it also doesn't mean they're always, right. Yeah. Sometimes the call can be wrong in in a lot ways. And sometimes it is like I get called called out by turfs a lot because I am like I am affirming of trans identity. I have many friends who are trans n it's one of those things were like, this is something I won't compromise on. So when I say stuff like, well, this is social constructed or whatever turfs call me out as anti lesbian, which is kind of. Larry's 'cause I am I am a career era. Yeah.

Which if I may summarize I am not exaggerating essentially led to let him to believe that call culture divides us into binary groups, which will be to things like the Rwandan genocide. He's the one who brought up the Rwandan genocide. Yeah. That's one of those like he went to the exact extreme that. I don't think is justified. Right. So what I would like you to sort of do maybe be helpful is give a deficient of culture. And then maybe we can talk about just where your theory might lie short of Rwandan genocide. So what is your definition of culture Colo culture is when somebody who is often in a prominent position either feminism or a celebrity of some kind or somebody who is a politician makes a mistake. They screw up in some way, they say something weird or wrong or something that is very often at something that's mimicking racism, or it's accidents antisemitic and stuff, and I say mimicking an accident in ways to say that it's not necessarily intent. What happens is celebrity is cancelled that person is no longer part of feminism you have to append their name with something. That's like, oh, this is Kevin Hart. He made those jokes about beating up his gay son sort of thing, and and that sort of call out culture becomes the scarlet letter of who that person is now in feminist circles. And so it becomes about who you can interact with who you can whose art and content you can consume and things like that in this goal of looking for a perfect feminism. So I have some questions problems. So one issue. I think is that your definition is is maybe different than Brooks's. It's definitely different than the example that Burks us, and I guess when trying to draw attention to is that people are kind of debating call out culture used scare quote with my hands there. And I I think that there's not a lot of precision about what that means. Because for instance, like Brooks Cassim to confli something that was a serious accusation of violence against one person. And in the second example was someone that had written a Starkey most and you can debate whether the snarky Poche should've gotten the same kind of censure as someone who's accused of sexual violence, but those are two very different Yang's. Yeah. I called up for as to be called out for maybe harass people feels different than calling someone out for maybe making an inopportune or immature. Yeah. And so we're both things or are you talking about one or the other? I'm talking about the heart a little bit different than for instance. When examples in your book is how Jessica Jones show had like a sort of fat phobic. Yes. Longline and having a line in your television show that is somewhat fat phobic seems very different than making jokes about your beating up your son. So where is the where is? Yep. More definition. A large part of that is that the ways in which we talked about Colo Colo culture in how we define it tend to flatten it out where every single sin is the same. So what I tried to get in the book is that each individual in particularly when consuming art has to decide what's appropriate. Where's the line for them? As of end that we as feminists need to be aware of how we're flattening the dialogue. Tough especially when we quite something like Kevin Spacey getting arrested for sexual assault with the guy from guardians of the galaxy..

"This is life and death. This ain't no game. We play fierce independence, intelligent dialogue and passionate logic. Is right here right now, this is smashed mouth rawal politics. Believe me. This is the dispenser of fairness. This is the unfiltered truth. This is Norman Goldman. Leased benedict. Donald was willing to say it again today government shutdown because Democrats will not fund border security. I'm glad he said it that way the government shutdown because Democrats will not fund border security. That's it. I mean, that's it. He's shutting down the government because they won't give him what he wants. This is not the way America works. He's not an American. I wish this so-called phony. President would learn how to beat American. Unamerican so-called phony fake, president would learn out of being American do right? Which would learn. American. He's never gonna get it. But I hope you were with us here at the end of the second hour as we go into the third hour. We had Richard who is very very articulate with his perspective. And Richard was very nice. It was nice enough to hold over with us. So before I get to the next segment, which has got a new topic here, which is this whole deep state thing. I'm starting to come around. I'm starting to come round am, I still liberal? If I agree that there's some deep state out there. Progressive. Richard, thanks for sticking with us. I didn't forget you. Let me go ahead. So again, all of this know to repeat, I guess all this nuanced, talk everywhere. Caller recap as we call it recap. Go ahead. Yeah. Yeah. Well, why aren't they asking? Why? Five days into the Democrats aching the house, and I can't believe that it's not covered. So I write of ombudsmen PBS, you know, David Brooks, all these people get out of the Mandy Pandy chunk. Brooks question. David. You know? I mean, I'm always writing. Because I haven't really been calling up CBS. But I'm I'm starting radio. I write Email them David Brooks, ever, right? Isn't he? Times Republican conservative columnist David Brooks. Yeah. But he's on. I think he gave that up or maybe he's on with duty Woodroffe do this. This watered-down sanctimony is. All the time. I just can't watch him or even shields, and I just needed. There's this part of the current outages evolving in the media, the this this back and forth. You know, the I do it this. Don't answer the fundamental question. Why is this happening? Now what I wanted to. Why is this crisis linked here? And what happened to the crisis of the caravan? You know, that's the thing. That makes me crazy. There's no history. It's like groundhog day every day they wake up in whatever stories and playing Donald Trump. Does it you know, and they just throw happy to do this. I guess because they don't have to do any work. Great for ratings ministers. This is clearly the continuation of what they were doing before the election. Right. They gave him a limited time. They never fact check them. They never caught the condom on anything. They never. I mean, they just they went along for the ride and a lot of people got him booze. And so and then they've never stopped there. Enjoying the show the ratings sky, high revenues pouring in MS great for business. He's fantastic for business. This is the best show. They've had forever. And we have another election with billions of dollars being spent there, and none of them to this day. We'll just say he's a liar. Did he lied about this whole lot there? Now, they're now all of them now saying, he's a liar. We we've passed that line some time ago, but the so what so what they call them a liar. They gave him they should have denied him TV time the other night, they knew he was going to go on there and lie and they gave they deny President Obama TV time in twenty fourteen they said, oh, President Obama. No, you're you're going to give an overtly political speech. They really said that. You're going to give an award. So we're denying the black guy who never called the enemy the people who actually is a constitutional lawyer who actually respects our system, we're denying you time because you're gonna make an overtly political speech on immigration, but we'll give the Nazi free airtime after he's told everybody the murderer us and we've got dead journalism in Maryland. I mean, Richard look a pardon me for sounding cynical. But it's only because you're sounding cynical. But I think we're both right. I mean, CNN and MSNBC CBS they went along for the ride and is still going to the cash and really really large checks, and let's be honest people. Look people listening, right? It hasn't done any good. So far with. But it's too late nights. You'd I'm sorry. He's.

President Trump, President And President Putin discussed on All Things Considered

"With the president of China this weekend. Both are locked in a multi-billion dollar trade war. Civil rights leaders say the indictment of four Saint Louis metropolitan police officers reveals a troubling mindset. Inside the department Saint Louis public radio's Rachel Lipman reports. The officers are facing federal charges for their roles in the assault of an undercover officer during a two thousand seventeen protests. The charges include excessive force obstruction of Justice and lying to a grand jury four officers have been suspended without pay the undercover detective was among hundreds of people arrested at downtown Saint Louis in September of last year. It was the third day of protests after a white for a police officer was acquitted of shooting and killing a black, man. That's Rachel Lipman reporting. This is NPR and I'm Jimmy Floyd for WNYC. Some New York City council. Members are introducing a Bill to make the government bidding process with corporations more transparent. The new law would prohibit officials from signing nondisclosure agreements with companies as happened in the Amazon deal councilmember Brad Lander says he feels that level of secrecy should not happen again. If the law had been in place, the city would have had to say we can't sign a non disco. Agreement. So there's two choices. We can make a bid, but it has to be public and people would be able to see it. The Bill is cosponsored by council members Monty Williams and Jimmy van Bremer atop regional Federal Housing administrator is calling for the arrest of three Niger officials after a report found they regularly lied about elevator. Inspections. Lynn Pat overseas region, two of the department of housing and urban development, which includes New York and New Jersey yesterday. She tweeted that the Niger employees should be jailed after they were charged with dozens of felony counts. For falsifying inspection reports. Daily news reporter, Greg Smith says Patten has little authority to pursue the case herself. She has almost nothing to do with this. I guess it's well intention that she does ask a question that is important. And that is did anybody higher up the ladder condone this behavior that isn't really important question. That's the most important question. Smith says the case will be handled by. The district attorney, and Shirley Chisholm story is coming to the big screen and Oscar winning actress viola Davis is bringing it to life. Davis is set to produce and star in a new film about Chisholm for Amazon studios called the fighting, Shirley Chisholm Chisholm, the first black woman ever elected to congress represented New York's twelfth district in the house of representatives from nineteen sixty nine to nine thousand nine hundred eighty three. She was also the first woman to seek the democratic party's presidential nomination in nineteen seventy-two Chisholm died in two thousand five at age eighty and we'll have a retrospective later on all things considered tonight.

I'm Mary Louise Kelley, and I'm Audie Cornish all is run. President Trump's first day the twenty summit in Argentina. He's working his way through a series of meetings. There Trump's visit comes on the heels of a big development and special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation a guilty plea by his former attorney Michael Cohen, and what it revealed about Trump's efforts to land a business deal with Russia during the two thousand sixteen campaign NPR White House correspondent tamra Keith is traveling with the president and joins us now from when his IRAs their town. Hey, ATI sometimes when a president goes overseas. The White House is trying to leave all the domestic troubles behind is that the case this time, the answer would seem to be no. And and the reason I say that is that President Trump was supposed to have a meeting here with Russian President Vladimir Putin, he abruptly cancelled that on the way to Argentina via tweet saying it was because of Russian aggression against Ukraine, but then this afternoon there were. Reports of a possibly an informal meeting happening between Trump and Putin. Those reports were being pushed from Russia and the White House put out a sort of an odd statement referring to the Mueller investigation. Sarah Sanders sent this along she said the Russian witch-hunt hoax, which is hopefully now nearing an end is doing very well. Unfortunately, it probably does undermine our relationship with Russia, which was not entirely the answer to the question that we were asking another way that we know that the president's thinking about it is that he's been tweeting about it from here in Argentina a little while ago. Reporter's got to ask the president questions, and and one of the questions was about why he cancelled his meeting with Putin. He insisted it was because of Ukraine, hopefully, they'll be able to settle it out. Flowers amazing with president. The basis of what took place. With respect to the ships, sailors that was the. In the meantime, what else has been going on at the g twenty one big thing that happened today was before the g twenty started a signing ceremony at the president's hotel with the leaders of Canada and Mexico signing the US MCA that is the trade deal that will replace NAFTA. One interesting note is that during remarks, President Trump and president Pineyro of Mexico. It was his last day on the job both referred to it as the US MCA, which is the preferred title that President Trump likes, but prime minister Trudeau kept calling it new NAFTA, even though President Trump does not like the term NAFTA at all. But you know, this is a notable moment because this is a step in the process of President Trump, keeping a campaign promise that said congress and legislatures in Mexico and Canada still need to sign off on this on another subject. The Saudi Crown prince Mohammad bin Salman is there. He's of course, been under scrutiny since the killing of journalist Jamal kashogi has he actually interacted with President Trump yet. So a White House official says that they just exchanged pleasantries that there was no discussion. This comes in pretty big contrast with a video that's been circulating of Russian President Putin, and m Bs exchanging sort of an intricate high five that looked very celebratory the president is under some scrutiny about this because he has questioned the CIA assessment that NBS ordered the killing of Jamal kashogi. That's NPR's tamra Keith tamra. Thank you. You're welcome. And we're going to start right there with the g twenty talks in Argentina for our regular week in politics chat. We also need to take stock of another wild week in the Russia investigation. David Brooks of the New York Times is here in the studio as he often has on Friday, David with you and Susan Glasser. The New Yorker, welcome to you. Thanks so much. So President Trump signed this new NAFTA deal today, except as we just heard we're not supposed to call it NAFTA anymore. That's controversial. We are referring to the United States Mexico Canada agreement the US MCA, Scott, I'm tempted to call it also maybe prospects for a trade deal or some sort of agreement with China that may be coming together down at the g twenty Susan. Let me start with you does this count as progress in a year where we have spent a lot more time talking about trade wars than trade deals. Well, look, I think President Trump made a decision to sort of pull back from the brink and to declare victory with the reincarnated NAFTA. Whatever you wanna call it, most experts, and I'm not one on this subject. Do believe that it essentially is a reincarnated NAFTA that it builds on the foundation substantially of the original went and by the way, it's not attend deal. I should point out that there's going to be a real political fight. I think. Up here in Washington on Capitol Hill over approving this. So it's not over. Although President Trump was was taking it as a victory lap. Today was also strengthened by government coming in Mexico, which will inherit the steel by a president on his last day there. That's right. And and I thought you saw the lasting hard feelings as a result of these very tough negotiations with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau who did appear at the last minute was uncertain at the signing ceremony today in Buenos Aires. But had some strong words for President Trump, and you've had this amazing spectacle. What have we taken to get here of the United States going after candidate one of its closest allies, David your takeaway, so far from the g twenty well, so far the image of Muhammad bin Salman and Putin doing an end zone dance together is the big takeaway video circulating of them doing a hi fi. Looking very cheer an image. It's a symbol. It's a symbol of an era in which the wolves of the global international order are on the March and undeterred because there's no one. Deter them. And so that's one thing. The second thing I think is the China US relationship and this thank heaven is not a Trump related story to me the big change in US China relations is that we used to have people who were friends of China somewhere, foes of China and the foreign policy establishment sort of split. That's no longer the case. Now, everyone sees China as a challenge, but as a foe Hank pulse in the former treasury fare gave a speech in Singapore recently in which he laid that very clearly and he was very much in the camp. So when Trump talks tough on China trade, he now has a lot of people who are not normally his friends actually thinking he's doing the right thing me loop.

Talk of entitlement reform takes over as midterms near

"There were not politically, correct. But they've done what needed to be done in order to unleash the animal spirits. Alan greenspan's. Alan Greenspan, Stephanie. It's pretty tough to argue with him. Are you sure he said he loves the Trump tax cuts or you gotta sit there constructive. Now. He loved he loved it. They were politically incorrect. Now, what he doesn't love is that we haven't done entitlement reform to accompany them. I wanna you know, it's coming to that. But he loves the Trump tax cuts one of the things about entitlement reform that we need is it surprises me the young people. Don't get more engaged on the entitlement reform ya you know, they sort of latch onto issues that are very very popular in the news. Entitlement reform or something I think people should really care about. Listen, the issue with the tax cut is it's a clear positive for corporate America. The tax code as it was far too complicated. But the amount of taxes that they cut you could ask Jamie Dimon. He will say, listen, I'm glad we got the tax cut. We didn't need it to be as much as it is because we are facing a massive deficit, and as far as the tax cut goes we're seeing corporations do so well two weeks ago. I the business council summit there hasn't been a hundred fortune five hundred there tickled pink, and they're saying they're spending there investing hiring and even without the tax cuts. Deregulation has been a huge positive for corporate America because remember in the Obama administration. It was not a pro business administration. And even if companies weren't faced with new taxes, the threat of regulations of threat more could be coming down the pike was preventing companies from spending. You're definitely seeing corporate America in a very good place book at the stock market one of the reasons the stock market is doing so. Well, suddenly. Corporations have twice as much cash on the books. So it is a positive obviously have a very tight labor market time to see wages push up more than they have this far. So Stephanie role year in the second bluest bubble in America. I always think that silicon valley's a bluer bubble the Manhattan, but I just had Marsha Blackburn on she's had a nineteen point swing in her direction over two weeks, Heidi Heitkamp has fallen apart. And she did a pratfall releasing the name of abuse survivors against their will yesterday that is blowing up. You've got mic. Sally surging ahead of cinema. Do you sense that the blue tide is a thing of the past? And that in fact, we're looking at it read time, I've talked about this a lot. I've never seen a massive Blue Wave coming thing that distresses me isn't are we going massive, bluer massive read the thing that distresses me is the hollowing out of the center on both sides. That is what I think is the most concerning and I think we're seeing it in both parties. Did you read David Brooks piece yesterday about the eight percent on the left? China today. Oh, are you really? Because that is that's the most interesting thing. But the noise comes from those two groups, that's the note, and by the way, our cable channels both left and right that noise. I don't know how we're ever going to break out of this you you are one hundred percent, correct. On a us. An example for you on Monday when I woke up I wasn't on TV. I heard what not the media thought of what Hillary Clinton said on Monday on Sunday about her husband, and Monica Lewinsky. Okay, saying it was not an abusive power. So I said via Twitter take something clear what the president of the United States has a sexual encounter with an intern. It doesn't matter how she behaved, blah, blah, blah. That's an abusive pallet. I'm not saying I'm not saying it's a soft. It is an abuse of power. When I tell you, Hugh, I got a nihil lead on Twitter, and I should hold on a second. Because of course, I've wanted what about Trump what about companies both things can be true abuse. Power is not unique to one industry wants sport, one one nation or one political party. But the tribalism we are seeing the absolute forgiveness of one side and an assault of another. Stop. It's unreasonable. It is going to be very difficult to break away from the profit motive of super serving the six in the eight percent. But I'm glad you're doing the David. That's what that's why I watched up and he going do the David Brooks. Brooks column is the smartest thing I've read in ages. Hey, man payments. Definitely real good to talk to you s rule on Twitter American, of course on MSNBC. Don't go anywhere. I'm coming right back America time to keep talking about these midterms. The red tide is coming everything
