Like Country, Like City: Failing Under the Left's Control
"Can you give me an example of a city that is implemented The full boat liberal agenda That has just prospered and flowered I mean where you have full monopolistic control and you haven't been stopped San Francisco New York you were stopped They got two terms of Giuliani It's since been on even Bloomberg outside of the gun control stuff was relatively reasonable on the economic stuff Before he went crazy with all the gun confiscation nonsense so New York it was the cycle was broken and we got de Blasio and it all went back again but they haven't managed to destroy the whole thing yet But what they've had monopolistic control everywhere You look at these countries they fall apart these country states and cities like San Francisco and I brought up countries because Chile just elected a communist This is a relatively prosperous South American country that in a matter of weeks and months has managed to almost completely fall apart You've got this guy in Mexico Amlo as well The destruction wrought by these people is just incredible Like you don't have a single example you can produce of success yet we have a ton of them Texas Florida Ronald Reagan's years in office I mean Margaret Thatcher's revitalization of the United Kingdom's economy our examples are all over I can see here all day
Lee Zeldin: People Are Rising up for Our Country
"I feel like you do have a big uprising right now of people who believe that they are truly battling for the heart and soul not only of their country but for their state too And for their family And by the way I see this culturally not just in politics Look at Netflix subscribers are resigning Disney Subscribers are resigning Cable subscribers are resigning CNN plus is CNN no more plus I think people are really focused and engaged whether it's in politics and the culture and so or do you feel this Do you see this Oh yeah And I mean I'm seeing like in New York City a couple of examples that popped one was de Blasio wanted to get rid of advanced academics that gifted and talented program because in the name of equity that it's not fair to challenge a student who's doing reading or math at a higher level to go further We're seeing it with all different elements of education and it crosses ideology party line
NYC Mayor Plays Race Card Amidst Rising Crime
"The relatively new mayor of New York, Eric Adams, when criticized about rising crime and about him backing up on being tough on crime, he threatened to reestablish the anti gang program and then back down in the wake of activists accusing the gang program of black suppression and crime has gone up and he's followed the same vaccine mandates mask mandates as for criticized by his predecessor Bill de Blasio. And he has resorted to, of course, playing the race card. We need to really stop distorting the news. You know, I'm gonna say this, and you know, I'm not saying it out of hate. I'm sending it out of love. I'm a black man. That's the mayor. But my story has been interpreted by people that don't look like me.
Mark Davis' Take on Groundhog Day
"I was just thinking of Mark Davis was speaking to mark his description of that punxsutawney Pennsylvania ceremony with the groundhog. He said it's a bunch of drunk old men with top hats. Whipping around that terrified, ugly vermin creature. And as if somehow, the creature knows whether it's going to be winter or not. It was one of the funniest things don't forget. The old Bill de Blasio worst man in the history of New York, he killed one of them. He dropped punxsutawney, one of the punks of Tony Phillips. So there's that. Democrats, they just can't get anything right.
Crime Spree Ravages America
"Me turn to another story that's really bugging me right now and that's the crime spree that we are seeing all over America from LA to Philadelphia, enormous amount of crime escalation in Philadelphia in recent days. And in New York City. So first of all, starting in LA, two recent incidents, one was a young woman who was working at a furniture store who was knives to death by a homeless person. The other was a 70 year old nurse out in the LA area. She was just going to work and she was attacked by a homeless person trying to get on the bus. She died. We have another homeless person in New York City, who pushed a young 40 year old woman, an executive at Deloitte, Asian woman, Michelle go right in front of a train and killed her. You know, the homeless thing, we got to get this under control. I'm sorry, you know what, if you're that messed up. The state actually has to take over. The state actually has to lock you up and put you away because you are a danger to society. 96 crimes reported just in the last two weeks on the New York City subway system. That's a 65% increase. I mean, we thought it was bad comrade de Blasio, right? In charge and now Eric Adams is not looking so hot. He actually is trying to tell everybody that the New York City subway system is quote safe. I'm sorry when you have a 65% increase in crimes. You want a woman 40 years old is pushed to her death by a homeless person. It's not safe.

"Some of the increasing incomes in a neighborhood as more and more housing gets built or as the neighborhood just changes even if housing isn't being built, which of course neighborhoods do. So I think those things all require or merit further exploration, but I think to assume that if you don't allow any housing that somehow prices are going to stay the same or go down is not born out by common experience, we're seeing it unfortunately with test kits and other things when supply is restricted or when supply is constricted in some way. Prices go up. And that's just the way in which markets work. And unless you're going to fundamentally change the market structure, you're not going to be able to control prices if you constrict supply. Interesting. We're in our last couple minutes here with Becky bean, former deputy mayor for housing economic development and thanks for all the time. It's really good to hear a lot of your thoughts and reflections and advice last two questions. On that subject, given everything that the de Blasio administration put in place mandatory inclusionary housing right to counsel to protect people threat of eviction, different housing voucher programs, a variety of things and others. Is one of the pieces of advice now and I don't even know if the new mayor needs is because it seems to be a bit of his perspective, but we're yet to see that really borne out by actual plans and implementation and such, but is one piece of advice now for the ad administration to pursue something of a building boom of housing in New York City. Obviously with considerations for affordability in a variety of other things. But are we at a point now where if you look at the data, the numbers, the challenges, again, as I said, you know, housing supply, not nearly keeping up with population growth. Is that sort of a piece of device now to the Adam's administration to really do a lot to pursue something of a housing building boom over the next number of years? I think the city has to see more housing growth or we will stop seeing growth in our population. And I think what marks New York City as the greatest city in the world is the diversity, the energy that innovation that comes from just having an incredible mix of people, some who've been here a long time, some newcomers, and I think we should be doing what we can to encourage the city being open to newcomers. So I do think we need to pursue a great deal of housing and all the things that come with that housing. Like I said, it can't just be housing. And lastly, going from that sort of macro vision to insider baseball in terms of how city government is structured around housing. Are there tips you have for the Adams administration? We're obviously as we record this conversation on January 12th. We're still waiting for official announcements about perhaps a deputy mayor for housing or some sort of top housing adviser. There's been reports of different people being named to that post and department of city planning and others, but in terms of how the top levels of city government is structured and ensuring that housing policy is prioritized and gets its dude. Do you have any things you are concerned about? Are you advised for the atoms administration to sort of structuring city hall and mayoral operations the right way? To finance housing and all the things that have to come with it. One, you have to, every agency has to know that it is a priority of the mayor. And when buildings that HPD financed were running into problems of getting a building permit or the fire department inspection or any number of things that have to come along with housing, the other agencies knew from mayor de Blasio's statements that housing was a priority. So I think it's really critical that mayor Adams make that clear and my concern is some people believe that the fact that there isn't a quote unquote deputy mayor of housing and whatever. Means that housing is somehow less important to this mayor. I think he needs to make that clear. If he's going to experiment with a different structure, which I am in favor of innovation and experimentation, but the position has to come with absolute clarity about the importance of housing and the importance of all agencies in city government cooperating with whatever is needed to make sure that that housing gets financed operated maintained. It has to be a strong, clear statement. Interesting. All right, there's three or four things on my list here we didn't get to, but I've kept you long enough and I appreciate all the time and the thoughts and I'll have to pursue those topics like a more in depth discussion on where public housing and NYCHA is and fits in on future episodes of the show. But Vicki bean appreciate the time and the thoughts. And we'll be looking for your next work out of NYU about where the city could head on housing and other issues. So thank you. Thank you, Ben. And thank you for all. I do want to say leaving government that I very much appreciate the role that the media played in shining spotlights in raising questions in pushing. So thank you for that. Appreciate that. Thank you. And be well. All right, thanks so much for..

"How to make sure that some of these neighborhood plans and rezoning don't take, don't take so long. Obviously that was an exception. But it doesn't necessarily have to be Soho. It could have been a variety of other neighborhoods, of course, selecting those and getting some buy in from local leaders is challenging sometimes and very important in the mayor has spoken to that many times about when asked about the neighborhoods that were chosen for rezonings and where they moved ahead that that was when there was a really sort of willing partner in the city council. And we, of course, saw others that kind of either never went anywhere that you wanted to do or some that went fairly far along. In bushwick, but then fell apart because of challenges between the administration and the local member. But one of my first thoughts was, well, why not east New York? And neighborhood X, let's just say Soho, but I don't think that would have been on the table at the time at the same time. And you mentioned capacity. Is that a lesson for the atoms administration? Is there something now that you think the department of city planning, HPD, other city entities really need to be bolstered to take the type of assertive action on a faster timeline that the city seems to need to have any real hope of making a significant shift in the affordability crisis and the lack of housing development to keep up with population growth? And that's a great question. I think the answer is in two parts. One is, yes, those agencies need additional capacity in part because they're being asked to do more and more. I mean, the staff at HPD and HDC to deliver 200,000 200,000 homes was not that much bigger than the staff that we had to deliver far fewer, right? And so you're asking people to do a lot more and that's just not sustainable over the long run. So there does need to be capacity increases. I'm concerned about the notion that there's a sort of a freeze on all hiring or cut a standard cut across all departments because not all departments saw significant increases in staffing in the. De Blasio administration. But the second thing is that I think we as a as a polity and certainly elected officials have to understand that when requirements are imposed, they impose costs. And they need to come along with the budget for the staffing and the costs that they impose. So every time you add another step to the process, and the step may be incredibly appropriate or necessary, but every time you add a step to the process, you increase the cost of the housing. And you delay the time when the housing will be available. And so that's something that often gets lost. We kind of pretend that we can have our cake and eat it too. But the city council over the de Blasio administration imposed a lot of new requirements. And again, I'm not saying that those requirements weren't appropriate, but they need to come with a hard nosed analysis of what are the costs that this is going to impose how much is this going to delay housing? How much is it going to increase the cost of housing, which by definition means that you can build less of it with the same amount of money? So we need to be sort of harder nosed about the costs that we're imposing. So during the time that we were trying to finance the 200,000 homes, we were also seeing very strict increases in the stringency of the requirements, for example, led testing. And perfectly appropriate, right? We don't want any child to suffer the effects of lead poisoning. But that has to come with a lot of enforcement tools and a lot of additional inspectors. That kind of thing. And it doesn't always come with us. The city council passes the requirement leaves it to the administration to budget, but there's often a disconnect between those two times. And so I think the lesson for the next administration is, we really have to pay attention to the costs that we're imposing and make sure, especially on enforcement that we're bringing along the resources that are required to actually enforce those requirements. Enforcement is never sexy, right? I mean, adding additional housing code inspectors or additional lead inspectors is not what makes headlines, but it's incredibly important. And very, very necessary if the agency is going to have the capacity to do things like more rezonings or more community engagement to bring communities along on those rezonings. In terms of making more neighborhood rezonings and community plans and neighborhood development projects happen, are there other key lessons are there other things you would suggest to the atoms administration, the new mayor didn't put out, and especially detailed housing plan during his run, but he laid out some pretty significant principles, including looking to up zone more wealthier areas of the city so that those areas would add affordable housing. He seems to be generally speaking at least someone who's sort of pro development and wants to supercharge some of that work. Are there keys to making some of that happen or even if it was just to try to realize some of the rezonings and neighborhood plans that the de Blasio administration didn't get to are there other lessons learned or advice you have in terms of making these.

"The city's need for affordable housing. Interesting. You know, it's interesting. You got it, one of the first things that I was thinking as you were speaking there, which you said, a capacity issue, you know, one of the first things I was going to ask you, if you didn't say that directly was, well, why not a couple of a couple of these at a time? And obviously, the gowanus process, as you mentioned, has been a very long one. And maybe we'll have a chance to talk about how to make sure that some of these neighborhood plans and rezoning don't take, don't take so long. Obviously that was an exception. But it doesn't necessarily have to be Soho.

"You know, there's not a class warfare fight he's having. He's like, I'm here to help the working class, but I'm totally fine with the rich people who live here and pay taxes. I think some of this gets at the essence of Eric Adams mayoralty, which is he seems to think that other than the fringes on both sides, really, that he can sort of thread the needle and make almost everyone else kind of happy because one of the best skills he has that was borne out in his victory was that he sort of gets where like most New Yorkers are. Now that doesn't necessarily mean you win a democratic primary where the left can really activate and win, but he, I think he knows that right or wrong on the sort of merits that most New Yorkers do not care about punitive segregation in the jails and believe that people should be safe in jail, they should be safe in the street. There are some people, of course who want to know about the nuances and who care a lot and they do those nuances do matter and the policies do matter. But in terms of him understanding that regular New Yorkers, whether they're really wealthy, middle class working class, whoever they are not concerned about some of these things that we all are paying hyper attention to and that's where the sort of like Twitter doesn't really matter. This that and the other doesn't matter that much as part of his stay focused message, which he wasn't always focused, but I'm focused on what people really care about in their daily lives. Clean, safe streets, good schools, affordable housing, some of these things that he really got. Obviously, Katherine Garcia got that too, and she got a whole bunch of votes. This is sort of his political superpower, which is very basic, and Bill de Blasio didn't quite understand was that if you want to do a lot of these other things, you also have to really deliver city government services and the basics. And so that's going to be fascinating to me is whether he really is focused on running city government well. He's made all these promises about a more efficient government, more government that serves people better. We can get far better results, though de Blasio did not really care about efficiency. He didn't really care that much about effectiveness. I don't think, you know, he just wanted to put a lot of good stuff that he thought good stuff in place. And hopefully help people's lives. You know, and help his own political standing. I think Eric Aaron's both learning from de Blasio and because this is how, you know, he I think thinks is that he wants to run city government really well, and that'll be, that'll be really fascinating to see. The other thing I think just on this question of learning from de Blasio is he has said this, but he vacillates between sort of being more nuanced and magnanimous and being very defensive as some of you have gotten at. He said that he will admit when he makes mistakes. He has said that he will stand with controller Brad lander and public epic germane Williams and talk about what's gone wrong in government. That'll be easy to do for the first 6 months or so when they're not really his mistakes. But those I think will be really interesting, whether he is willing to acknowledge mess ups, screw ups, issues with his own policies and so forth..

"So after those three deaths, he's never able to express what it is he's done. He starts hiding behind a series of complicated buzzwords, talk about community policing that nobody really understands. What it means or how this is different. And consequently, the good that happened on his watch, he never found the language to express that to clarify what had happened and why you deserve credit, which I truly think he did. Yeah, I mean, and again, like on some of these other things we've mentioned, it's like part of this theme where and he even admits he's admitted in his allies have admitted that, you know, he was not great at communicating throughout which again is this confounding thing for someone who knows politics so well obviously and watched the dinkins years so closely and everything since just quickly and we need to move into Eric Adams a little bit, but I was looking back at this recently and that the press conference Bill de Blasio had to announce that they were dropping that appeal on stop and frisk. One of the people that he very sort of assertively shouted out was Eric Adams for his advocacy against the overuse and abuse of stop and frisk, which ties into this campaign that we just all covered and some of the issues that came up there and some of the questions about what kind of error guidance would be especially on this issue. Just quit real quick. You're listening to max politics. This has been maximum Gotham gazette. I'm joined by doctor Christina Greer, Harry Siegel and Sally goldenberg. Thank you all for taking the time again. So are there things as we move to a little bit of conversation on Eric Adams and the city that he's inherited and what he might do with it? Are there things about being mayor of New York City that the de Blasio year is sort of reinforced or taught us that are really important things for Eric Adams to be thinking about for us to be thinking about as we cover watch, analyze Eric Adams, I think there's a whole bunch of lessons and Eric Adams seems to have either already known them or learn them from the de Blasio years, but any sort of big picture things that seem to stand out for this new mayor from having watched the last one. Yeah, I'm gonna start with, you know, obviously being mayor of New York City is a huge deal, so it makes sense that Eric Adams is on the Colbert show and he's been doing all the national television programs this week. But he can't fall into that trap of going all morning Joe a few times a week and not going and speaking to the room 9 folks. He's still in his honeymoon phase, but I think, you know, a little yellow flag that I'll be looking out for is how Eric Adams deals with problems when he's not in the honeymoon phase. The level of defensiveness that we saw in de Blasio, we can feel is palpable in Eric Adams. I mean, just under the surface, it's not enough for beads in the world to get that to go away..

"But realistically, when COVID hit an unemployment was rampant. And people were still scrambling to try and get money from the federal government. We were relatively safe city. I mean, you know, you hear about stories from the 80s, obviously the 70s when New York was just like the okay corral. And I think the way people say in Long Island talk about New York is actually not the reality of New York. I mean, New York actually was pretty safe under de Blasio and even when the NYPD did their slowdown. I was like, hey NYPD, don't try and prove your own point. We actually don't need all of you. When you guys slow down, we're still safe, right? So when you have police officers who were out because of COVID in the very beginning, it's like, we were still good. Now, I don't know if that's directly Bill de Blasio's leadership, necessarily, but there's something about his tenure where we did not devolve into this lawless Mad Max nation that many Republicans said we would in 2013 if we elected Bill de Blasio. I think my question for you all is journalists who obviously have looked at Bill de Blasio way more intimately than I have is you know, I always think about when Ibrahim Abdul mateen came on FAQ and my scene, we talked about water and how Bloomberg put together all of these protections and safety measures to protect our watershed and our water. And it's like the super unsexy but incredibly important behind the scenes, big municipal project, you know, all these testing stations that we see nowadays, if you're looking around, you see all these water stations to make sure if anything ever goes down on the terrorism front, we're protected with water. Did Bill de Blasio do any of those like behind the curtain? Nobody really knows. Nobody really cares until it's time to care. Did he do any of those projects where it's like, wow, in years to come, we're going to be like, this guy was like really forward thinking. And we're so glad that he invested all this money into a project that none of us even really talk about at all. I don't know how many people know what Bloomberg did with the free water testing kits, which let Perry. I hope you filled out because that was your homework for 2021. You know, like things like that. And I don't know..

"Get back to or get fired That's how we get things done And something that we can all agree is that COVID is bad for business Bad for people Actually here's the great irony Here's a great irony of that particular statement That happens to be Bill de Blasio on his way out of office but not before he's done maximum damage to New York City by putting the vax mandate for businesses in place today You have a lot of businesses that have prospered during the pandemic don't you Here's the great irony behind the dictatorial policies The Marxist policies of the left during the course of this pandemic But de Blasio just said that's not true at all All you have to do is go to take a look at some stock prices Of many very large companies often in technology perhaps in healthcare that have just thrived Ever since the pandemic began And one of the many reasons why they thrived well what happens when you have local businesses say in New York City or anywhere USA They get the screws taken to them What happens with demand that otherwise would go to those smaller companies To mom pa does it not get displaced and go elsewhere and so do you not say for example big technology companies incidentally right in line with the overall politics and philosophy of the Marxist Democrats in Washington today
New Year's Celebrations Shelved Across the Globe as COVID-19 Surges
"Thought two years ago about this time when we were just learning about this virus out of Wuhan, China? That two years later, we would still have things being canceled at Christmas. We still have New Year's Eve celebrations being canceled and they are all around the world. Major cities. Are canceling their celebration this weekend? Because of the spread of the Alma cron variant, so far, New York City is scheduled to have a limited and I don't quite understand how you do this, but mayor Bill de Blasio says that partygoers in Tom square this weekend must be must wear a mask must be fully vaccinated, and they must social distance. Now, how do you social distance at a new year celebration in Times Square? And who's going to be enforcing that? Are they literally going to pull a page out of the Biden book and have white circles painted all over Times Square? I'm not quite sure how that's going to be enforced. But regardless, at least New York City is going to try to have their celebration.

How Can You Claim a Religious Exemption for the COVID Vaccine?
"Folks I'm talking to John. Smear rack. John, let's just continue. You're talking about helping your friend Vinny, that the name I guess is made up, but a real friend who's here in New York, like I am who is being forced or at least his employers trying to force him to take this experimental RNA therapy made with, I mean, abortion is inevitably at the heart of this horrible treatment, whatever they're calling it. So let's talk. Let's go. My Friends employer is a great employer. They have no choice. Bill de Blasio has issued a decree, the way Mussolini is issued to create. He has decided everybody in New York is going to take this experimental vaccine that has never been tested for safety. Everybody, they're just going to do it because the mayor says so. And since this is Vladimir Putin's Russia, I'm sorry, no, this is New York City. There's a Statue of Liberty in the harbor. But that's kind of a hollow statue. It's only a penny in penny, penny worth of copper, thickness. The liberty in New York has become mighty hollow if the mayor can buy decree control the medical decisions of everybody in the city or they're unemployed. So basically obey or starve. So my friend asked me that I don't want to take this thing because it's entailed with abortion. They used the boarded babies to make it on a tested. What do I do? So this employer said, they will consider religious exemptions. If you have a genuine religious objection, and that's the law, folks, the law says that your employer has to accommodate sincere legitimate religious objections. So I went and looked the Thomas more society. If you go to Thomas more society dot org, they have a resource page, vaccine legal help. And it offers you sample letters you can write, explaining your conscientious decision as a result of your religious belief, whatever it is, they have ones for different churches. Why you don't want to take a vaccine that would not have been possible without

Kevin McCullough on the Left Losing Their Manipulative Powers
"Kevin McCullough, I want to talk to you about current events. I want to talk to you about CSI. Let's start with current events. You said to me earlier off the air that the left knows that it is, you know, facing disaster that the whole country is waking up to their secret agenda to destroy America, not that there's anything wrong with that. And so they're being I guess they realize they have nothing left to lose, so they're kind of basically acting very drastically doing anything they can possibly do. What do you think? No, I think that's right. And I think that what you're seeing is the reality that they are starting to be forced to accept that there's not that much that they can yet do. And so you're seeing whether it's governor hoeke in New York or mayor de Blasio as he's going out the door or even Joe Biden, the insistence that we're going to, when they talk about, for instance, the mandates, the vaccine and the masks and stuff, they're still talking like it's march of 2020. This omicron scare has not scared anybody. In fact, all the medical professionals have looked at it and said, this might be the end of COVID-19 in terms of the deadly phase of it because this virus wants to live. It's figured out how to mutate itself into a version that won't kill its hosts. And there's a lot of reasons to be optimistic. They can't allow the country to become optimistic. Because in order to hold on to those emergency power orders that they had in all those states where they could control all the voting mechanisms, you have to keep everyone under lock and key and complete fear. So right now, what you're seeing is the coming awareness of, oh, we're not going to have these same tools to manipulate with in the future.

"Of the really a lot of the city's larger climate infrastructure projects have been delayed under the de Blasio administration And there's still billions of dollars in recovery funds from hurricane sandy that are waiting to be spent The biggest infrastructure project that was completed to deal with climate change by the city was the rockaway boardwalk which was finished back in 2017 but other than that some of the biggest projects like the east side coastal resilience project have been mired in lawsuits and have not yet progressed too far De Blasio oversaw the city of time when the effects of the global failure to address the climate crisis became unmistakable How do you think he did in terms of preparing the city to weather the dangers of climate change You know in many ways I think hurricane sandy was the city's wake-up call about the dangers of climate change and sea level rise And we're almost 9 years out from hurricane sandy now And the city remains in many ways unprepared for another major storm They've been definitely been some gains that have been made houses have been raised There's been some coastal protections built but many of the same neighborhoods that were flooded during her canned sandy would flood again if the storm were to return today I think I had exposed a whole nother threat which is serious rainfall and street flooding And so climate change in New York City is not just going to be coastal storms although that's largely what the city has been able to focus on during the de blizzard administration But there are a lot of other threats including severe heat increased rainfall and even droughts in the future What climate resiliency measures should de Blasio has spent more effort in political capital on in your opinion Yeah It's difficult to say what might.

If I look northern, particularly northern, particularly one where it leaking fused by the lack of sunlight, I'm in Montana, but it's very beautiful here. You are, of course, in wonderful Texas. Safely in Dallas, very, very glad that I left my native New York City, where now the rejected failed mayor Bill de Blasio on his way off the ship is throwing a grenade over his back shoulder ordering that every private business force vaccination on every employee. Business of any, why would anybody do this? Why don't you just blow it off? Really? It sounds like the dumbest thing I've ever heard. I don't quite get it. Well, we're trying to explain what the branch committee is doing and why the branch committees are doing it.

"Hey everybody that is prager from the free state of Florida. Let's have cheers, Sean. Cheers for Florida. A standing ovation. That's correct. You know why it's free and California isn't that New York isn't? Because it's run by Republicans. Never has the clarity of the utter unbridgeable moral gulf intellectual gulf honesty gulf scientific gulf between the left and right been clearer than through COVID. That's right. Basically the states run by the left lie to you. And lock you down. Bad combination. Play play the spectacular fool who was the mayor of New York City. Mister de Blasio play him for us, please. Our youngest kids. We got to reach them now. Right now in the city, it's about 20% have gotten vaccinated in that 5 to 11 range. It's new. The vaccines relatively new. But what we're trying to say to parents is it's urgent before a crime grows before Delta continues to stress this even worse in the winter months. Get your kid vaccinated. And here's an incentive to do it. A lot of parents, of course, want to take their kids out to wonderful things that will be happening in a holiday season. Here's a reminder, get your child vaccinated. Just one dose will immediately qualify any child to be able to participate in those activities. But look, I'm a parent, and I remember vividly when my kids were going to school, you don't end up in a situation where a child is left unprotected. I urge parents really strongly. Get that vaccination. It's safe. It's been proven. Here's another incentive to do it. So it's one dose for children but two now for adults. Is that right for the program? We're going to be phasing in two for adults as of December

"The morning new york. This is the catch roundtable sunday morning. What's going on with this governor. David paterson and no one better than to tell us what the heck is going on the money governor. How are you good morning on. I'm actually up in early I wanna watch a football game at nine thirty. So i'm ready. Wow now to tell us There was a few stories. I was concerned about that in the new york times on friday about changing some of the elite public schools that exist in new york to tell us about it. Well for a long time. People have felt that the gifted encountered programs particularly the ones that start at kindergarten is very hard to test those kids to decide who's gifted and talented. They usually had one test that they took and it kind of governed where they were going to be educated for the rest of the public school experience. Now there were some problems in that system but just like with bail form when you go to fix some of those problems. Sometimes you can destroy the system. So what is going to happen. This here because Mayor defazio wanted to keep the test. He was running against it but he wanted to keep the test. Is that the board. That is supervising this overrule mayor de blasio. And what's going to happen now. Is they're going to have a lottery so there's going to be a lottery to determine who should be in the gifted and talented programs fail miserably man so dumb. I can't believe how dumb that is. I don't is a good word because we can say on the radio. I have some other. That i'm thinking of the reality. Is that when you mix the the classes so much. The giftedandtalented kids at sitting around staring at the ceiling. Because they've already completed the work and the other kids are still struggling to try to complete the work. So that's why you try as much as you can to find tune the education to the capacity of the child to learn it what we want to get rid of is the sort of caste system when you start out that way you know you're in the dumb class or the smart class stuff. They used to say when we went to school. You don't want that but at the same time. You don't want a situation where we're never gonna have any gifted and talented. Bright kids coming out of our schools in america to compete with the kids who are coming out of school from russia and china and just as an example of that. When i was in office. I tried to take four only four of the eighteen state universities and have specialized classes for engineers. Or you know really talented kids in the school and the legislature really gave me a hard time wouldn't do it. Thankfully governor andrew cuomo who succeeded. He was able to put that into effect What else is going on. In new york new yorkers should know about today's sending well. I think that there is still a. We're looking at the possibility of two new people. Running the city and the state Eric adams this week turned down three million dollars of campaign. donations so I guess he thinks he's going to win and Why we turn it down. Just keep keeping the clifford. He could just keep it in the for. But i guess this was sort of like a good government Idea that if you i mean. I don't know anybody really cares when he says it's good government. I i mean it's not even good government. It's kind of like charity. It goes back to the city. Maybe he feels he can use it for something else when he becomes mayor but it was a sort of noteworthy that he did that Courtesy with a republican candidate is traveling around the city but they car. That says curtis cares. He's got some commercials on where he shows himself talking to someone who disrupted one of his press conferences that was reno very effective so You know the the enrollment really favors atoms. And he's the likely winner but that race is still going on and then of course. We have governor kathy local who is hoping to stave off potential challengers and this week. She shut down. The governor's one point two billion dollar what they call the wrong way train That would operate out of queens. So and she also has completed her forty five days. And i was. I had thought of this. She had a forty five day grace period for herself to kind of decide who she wants to work with and who she doesn't and she has opened the gates and put a lot of the cuomo people who were enforcing the toxic atmosphere that existed there Out of the governor's office. And and so i would say that. She still gets high marks and she made an interesting comment on thursday when she said that some people couldn't get vaccinated because they were afraid to get on the subway because there's so many people on them that they're more dangerous that was a pretty brazen and strong comment. It's it's right but usually governors. Don't say that so I think she had a good week. Any notables that you make changes that we would know the names in the last week or something Press secretary who was in. The lieutenant governor's office moved to the governor's office with her. They've assigned that person to another agency. I don't remember that particular name. Larry schwartz who had been secretary to governor cuomo and myself is going to step down from his position as the on the Mta board and I think that just in the last period that those are the those are the notables. I understand there's a lot of rooms around that Governor cuomo may decide to run again to james's thinking about running so many. I mean giamatti williams mayor de blasio and he gut feelings. My gut feeling is if mayor de blasio thought he could get away with it he would run but he's gonna run into a lot of trouble because many of his campaign promises from twenty thirteen in twenty seventeen. We're not so filled But he did win democratic primaries there and if you win the democratic primary for governor you're very likely to become the next governor I i think that tissue. James and kathy hogan of both the same age if tisch james ever wants to be governor of the state of new york. The time to run would be now because it's not. She might wait eight more years. I and by that time she seventy years old. It'd be hard to run for governor at that griego and With governor cuomo. I think that he is going totally in the wrong direction. He still litigating case online. He's writing letters to different people. He's sending notes to Prominent people telling them who he thinks. They should support and certain races. So the idea that he was getting out of politics is certainly not there but i think when he needs is what they call a moment of reflection. Will you have to stop and think about what you did. And maybe what. You didn't do a best example of that. Were president george w bush. Who was you didn't hear him for two years after he left. And then he went on the oprah winfrey show and took tow responsibility for what happened in hurricane. Katrina and jimmy carter. Who's very quiet. After he left and then it's come back to a number of things now at ninety six years old still doing things and you just have to take some time and let what's happened you think in. I don't believe he's doing that. David paterson thank you for everything you've done for state only commonsense and reflect and continue to do that. God bless you. And god bless new york and god bless america. Thank you john Thank you so much listening in tomorrow when you go back on..

Any time he speaks, It's like this guy, his big program for bringing the city back. Is that have city funded bad dance theater. You know, it's like that's not even though if he were going around, saying we're gonna have like Like, you know, Break dancer Troops go around to perform in public, I'd say all right, that's kind of cool. Actually, no, De Blasio finds a way to make this. It's just so bizarre. The whole thing is so weird. And this is what they're focusing on right now. I mean, it really does look like a bunch of minds. Who are who are stuck inside a box and the mayor of New York City as the minds air.

"de blasio" Discussed on The Editors
"So Charlie Build Blasio that in the news this week with the tweet warning the Jewish community and other communities but especially the Jewish community that They had fair warnings and now they and NYPD is GonNa come and get him summons and arrest them if they continue to have the gatherings higher than recommended the proximate cause of this tweet was a civic civic funeral and Brooklyn. What do you make of it? Are you GonNa? It's an odd tweet. I think it was oddly. Phrased the presumptions odd from what I understand. That funeral was given permission to go ahead. And those that broke. The rules were knowledged and indeed apologize full by its organizes. I am not one who likes to throw words around. Big Anti Semite Racist. Let's people exist. They do it is of course a hideous thing that there are some among us who hate other space on their immutable characteristics. But I don't think biolog- that your average person in America hobbies hatred towards his fellow man and I think build a buzzy does either. I do think that he ought to rethink how he communicates especially given world history in this area and I think that there's a certain double standard here. I did wonder when I saw that. Tweet how long it would have taken had say. Donald Trump tweeted it to see the mushroom clouds on the horizon. We would probably have talked about nothing else for days but that would have been because the press and the Democratic Party would have overreacted. And I don't want to overreact here against Bill de Blasio. What I do want to do is to bury bill de Blasio as an effective public official. He's not one. He's a poor mayor. He's a poor communicator. He's not strong thinker. He hasn't handled this well. And it seems to me that if bill de Blasio the mayor of different city if he were the mayor of say. Houston all boise or Jacksonville. He would be pilloried day in day out and all sorts of conclusions would be drawn about his leadership. He is the worst. Man Yorkers had for a long time he showed signs of being that right from the beginning I think it was in the first few months of his first administration that he royally screwed up the snow plowing in the streets. Much to the Chagrin of New Yorkers. He is not up to this task and I think rather than sharing anything particularly sinister rather than implying. That de Blasio is an anti Semite or a racist or a bigot. Which I don't think he is. I think this shows that he's out of his depth and he doesn't know how to address people in what is a crisis. Unfortunately we have too much of that at all levels at the moment so I think there's something a little odd here that there's almost a hidden mental distinction that people like to Blasi. Oh Meek Me This is. This is my own form of of paranoia but some of the background. An anger is that you know New York City has about one over million Jewish people living in it. This funeral that was broken. Up was on a a more ultra-orthodox group And forgive me if I don't use the correct terminology. At every step along the way and characterizing them but These members of these ultra Orthodox groups especially in Brooklyn have been subject in New York City to a lot of random street violence It'S ACTUALLY NOT RANDOM. It's their targeted by You know often of members of other racial minorities in the city who don't like choose or who don't like the way. Jewish businesses operate in Brooklyn. Or the way you know heavily. Jewish apartment blocks are operated. I don't know but there's been a simmering anger at de Blasio for not calling this out and dealing with it effectively And it's very sensitive. I think the Distinction de Blasio makes with ultra-orthodox Jews. And I think it's one that's that's held in other incidents is that well there are Jews and you know the people that populate even the Dubois Zeo Administration in in the mayoralty that are secular. And then there's this other group that is cordoned off as kind of ultra religious freaks. Whose behavior is in some way unaccountable. Or you know. Somehow those people deserve what they get and So I don't think when he was formulating that tweet he was thinking about you. Know Jews writ large but I think he was thinking in the smaller category of you know people who live differently In New York City live in a way. That's visibly a noticeably different in New York City And that are you know. Kind of a constant source of negotiation with police and with You know various bodies the administration so I think something like was informing this event and But it was an ugly thing to tweet and deserves pretty much all the criticism. He's getting for it It was thoughtless and it's also just disrespectful because this this group did try to organize with police For their funeral and In the police allowed the situation to get out of hand the fact that NYPD doesn't respect bill de Blasio is not new. That's been true since he was elected in fact they actively loathe him and so probably didn't feel like imposing his edicts on Some very well behaved members of the community in general so it was a totally avoidable incident But blasi deserves just about everything. That's happening to him. Charlie Cook exit to you and sheer political terms who has fared worse in the Krona Virus Crisis Bill De Blasio or Donald Trump Belda blasios probably but trump may may pay greater price for it in that trump is running for president in a few months. Bill De Blasio was already done med. I'm I mean the trump because I think he I think trump is rapidly heading towards I think he's almost heading towards lame duck status In that the administration has been slow on so many sectors of this crisis has promised so many things that have just not materialized. I mean remember the promise of testing centers outside of every Walmart and target This was a promise made in the White House lawn and just disappeared as vaporware and it seems like more little crises are going to happen including meat shortages. And I just don't think a president can get reelected when basic necessities are rationed and And there are shortages. So I'M GONNA say trump agree that the trump having a bad and political terms crisis more consequential stakes are higher For him I think de Blasios had worst one. I mean. He's been at. The very epicenter of this was late at every single. Turn and then has also overreacted. Then and absurd ways. I have sympathy shutting down the schools telling people. Subways aren't safe. Those really hard things to do and things that I think anyone is certain level would hesitate to do but he got those calls wrong but trump clearly has been hurt. There is at rally around the flag period where it wasn't a huge rally around the flag but a notable rally round the flag fact whereas approval rating was up. He's giving back those gains and some more Just because the response was late Initially and he's been shooting himself in the foot At press briefings. And it's just a a major red flashing light when you're the president United States during crisis and people think your opponent would be better suited to handle that crisis and especially when you're ponant is Joe Biden Sitting as basement impressing no-one otherwise so let's pause and let me do a quick and our plus plug got.

So Michael has been a while since we've talked about Russia gate related things but we're now and in the phase where we're having revelations important revelations about what was going on behind the scenes and we've had several over the last week having to do with. Michael Flynn case has special. A WE saw yesterday recording. Thursday afternoon these notes from an FBI. Agent strategizing About the the Flynn interview. They're going to undertake after his phone. Call with Russian ambassador. Kislyak where he says Goal here you WanNa get the truth slash And mission or do we want to try to get him to lie so we can charge him or get him fired. And there's been indications that that just wasn't a much of a product yet for an investigation here obviously the Logan Act which hasn't been seriously some something like eighteen fifty two completely absurd and it seems. There's a chance that Astonishingly given that. Flynn actually pled guilty to lying to the FBI that his his Plea could be given back to him. And the Justice Department light withdraw this case what he make they should withdraw the case I think the note I think. Some people in our sphere. Maybe over exaggerating the contents of that note. Which was obviously you know. Leaked to in no favourable people in the media in order to prepare us for either a change in flint status or for some kind of pardon Which by the way I think he deserves. I mean I'm not the biggest. Flynn Fan on Earth. But the note in question gives us a glimpse into precisely what Charlie Cook Has Been Warning about since the beginning of this investigation that there's a sense in which Federal Investigations are opened up and the whole point becomes not the substance of an investigation but attempts to get the subjects of them to trip up in an interview and then charge them with obstruction or perjury at some point And that this is not just a waste but this is unjust and You know we're seeing it that note reflects I don't think it reflects the author of the notes intention to do these things but in it certainly reflects his suspicion that other colleagues do intend something like this and he's raising question to we you know. What is the goal here and The the the goal of an investigation should be to get to the truth and to punish a wrongdoer for doing wrong not for eating its own tail So yeah I mean I look forward to more more leaks like this coming out. I mean I even thought that one previously showing that intelligence sources knew that the steele dossier contain Russian. Disinformation I thought that was also telling it was exactly what I expected to happen But I'm glad that the truth is getting out that you know. This country was a portion of it was sentenced these paroxysms of paranoia that a foreign government had somehow compromise the president and other members of his administration. And now we're finding out that you know. This case was mostly. People projecting their own shadows and suspicions onto the wall. And and that was just about it. Kelly Cook I think if the charitable interpretation of that note is correct new. May well be then. It's a disgrace. Interpretation of that note is correct. Then it's sufficient cause for the abolition of the FBI and possibly for a revelation. I do not..
"de blasio" Discussed on Primary Ride Home
"From booker. Here's Today from the campaign trail this morning. New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio dropped out of the presidential race he went on MSNBC's morning joe to make that announcement. Let's listen to that brief clip here so getting out there being able to hear. People's concerns addressed them with new ideas. It's been extraordinary experience but I have to tell at the same time I feel like I've contributed all I can to this primary election and it's clearly not my time so I'm going to end in my presidential campaign continue my work as mayor of New York City and keep speaking up for working people now as with all major candidates who drop out. Let's look back at some highlights from that. The blasios campaign first off announced on May sixteenth of this year which was very late the only two Democratic candidates. I'm tracking who announced insulator are Joe SESTAK and Tom Steyer. De Blasios spent just one hundred twenty seven days in the race in an article for New York magazine Margaret Hartman summed up the New York perspective on the race quote despite a list of progressive accomplishments in New York such as universal pre-k and raising the minimum wage to fifteen dollars. Here's what to blasios contributed to the primary race was mainly an opportunity to make jokes about the wild unpopularity of his presidential bid in the months before the mayor announced just campaign everyone from former aides to his own wife expressed doubts about his run in April a Quinnipiac poll found seventy six percent percent of New Yorkers felt he should not launch a twenty twenty campaign with only eighteen percent supporting the idea these reservations proved well-founded did after he entered the race to Blasi consistently pulled around zero to one percent and he had little chance of qualifying for the October debate a Sienna College poll released three days ago go had to Blasio at zero percent among voters in both New York City and New York state end quote and out so I'm going to pick one solid highlight from de Blasios campaign in a CNN townhall on August Twenty Fifth Blasios gave an excellent answer to a question about immigration Russian reading here from my own script next day. Quote a student named joy asked him the question quote wouldn't a guaranteed right to healthcare including undocumented immigrants only in of is more undocumented immigrants to come to the United States and quote to Blasi. Oh thank the student for asking the question and in a a gentle way proceeded to reject its premise and explain what he called quote our actual reality and quote he went on to describe how president trump's rhetoric around immigration gratien creates a perception of immigrants as an invading force that somehow takes away from other citizens de Blasios reject that premise and gets into specifics about what he thinks the real problem is end quote and here is that clip what we should do is make sense of this American reality rather than try into curse the darkness. Let's light a single candle and I say not only do we need the competence of immigration reform with a pathway to citizenship we also. I need a guest worker program to recognize this huge. Swath America did not have enough people to do work. That's needed for our economy and we could make sense of that with a guest worker program and we can have an open and honest conversation but actually get to the heart of joys question. We have to acknowledge the really horrible politics underlying underlying this that for decades. There's been an effort to demonize immigrants. It's been all about color remember Donald Trump literally first day of his campaign. Am Pain attacked Mexican Americans and described them as criminals as an entire population so this has always been about race and it should not be but it has been if we recognize that there's many many people in this country who happened to be American citizens. Many of them happened to be white who they themselves are legitimately struggling. They're American dreams not working out. There economically challenged the next generations not doing as well as I hope. They have a lot outta debt. There's a lot of problems in their lives. They're frustrated. I don't blame them for being frustrated but they've been told for years and years the immigrants did it to him and I WANNA be blunted by the immigrants didn't do that to you. Wall Street did that to you. The big corporations to you. The guy in the kitchen or the guy didn't have the power to do that to you. Only those who had the power and wealth concrete an economy so unfair to work in people in middle class last people so once we unmask that truth and I think we should all speak that truth with energy then we can answer the rest of the equation. Why do I think it's important to give healthcare fair to human beings who are part of our communities because they're human beings if you don't give them health care air they'll get sick. Everyone else gets sick and then they will seek healthcare where what we talked about before in the emergency room and guests to pay for it anyway all all of us. Why are we stopped the fiction and help our fellow human beings who are part of our American reality in an article for NBC News to Blasi explains in his own words why he is leaving the race and offer some advice to the remaining candidates reading from that article quote? I promise I'll fight for New Yorkers and workers everywhere everywhere to ensure. There's an actual plan to protect their livelihood from being automated out of existence. I'll also help ensure. Our party continues to be remade. He made in the image of the activism. I've seen all across this nation. Democrats must return to our roots party focused on bold solutions that speak to the concerns of working people if we do not we will lose in twenty twenty. Yes Donald Trump lies to working people but he at least pretends to talk to them. that may be enough for him to win if we do not constantly make it clear that the. Democrats are the party of everyday Americans in rural counties and urban urban centers the coasts and the heartland end quote.
"de blasio" Discussed on KTRH
"De Blasio was in Las Vegas last weekend shaking hands with voters and he mows over his run for the White House. Former vice president Joe Biden has not yet announced he's joining the democrat residential field. But he's widely expected to run in recent days. Of course, several women have come forward accusing by of unwanted touching in sports. There was a tribute to George and Barbara Bush at minute maid for the season home opener last night. They played as again today on sports talk seven ninety five. Oh. Coming up and tonight, red raiders in the final four against Michigan state. They play after the Auburn Virginia game news on demand to KTAR H dot com. I'm Sally Adams on Houston's news, weather and traffic station. Newsradio seven forty KTAR h. Had. Nothing to do. Money, and we are back. This is money matters with Ken moraif. And of course, I am your host Ken moraif. Thank you, Jack. I have been a certified financial planner professional for the last twenty marvelous wonderful and very exciting years. And all of the ideas that we talk about on this show. These are the same ideas that we talk about with our beloved and most valued clients, and since we are a firm that specializes in retirement planning, our clients are mostly people who are over fifty who are retired or retiring soon and financial times named our financial advisory firm moneymatters, one of the top three hundred registered investment advisers for the second time, actually. Yeah. That was quite an honor. I have to say, and of course, without our clients. We would be absolutely nowhere. So I give that to our clients in its entirety. Who a kiss I like it. All right. So speaking of giving wonderful gifts to somebody that you love. Let's talk about our beloved spouses, and let's talk about social security for spouses. So if you have a question with regard to social security, and you know, I'll endeavor to answer it on the air. So if you want to Email me my Email addresses can at moneymatters dot net can at moneymatters dot net. So here's the question. I am fifty eight my wife is currently sixty three and she turned sixty two before the end of two thousand fifteen now that's important because there are strategies that are no longer available. If you're not sixty two before the end of two thousand fifteen they changed the laws. All right. So to repeat I am fifty eight wife is sixty three she turned sixty two before two thousand fifteen. All right. So we are both high earners. Congratulations are old strategy was as follows why would file and suspend at sixty nine allowing me to claim spousal benefits based on her record at age sixty six. All right. So she would file against him and suspend her benefits who would take against his and then wait till she seventy to start collecting and he start collecting it sixty six. All right. So we both then would claim are maximized earnings benefits at age seventy so based on the best set of facts and the changes to the laws and claiming rules. What is our best approach? Now. Well, unfortunately, you will fall under the new rules. So even though why is old enough? She will not be able to file on your application for her spousal benefit when she turned sixty six because you will not have filed your benefit. Okay. Now, you could file early. But generally, that's not a good idea. So your circumstances may say it's okay to do that. But you could file early which case she could. But barring that it's best that you don't. Okay. So maximizing benefits for any couple that falls under the new rules the new law. All right. We'll mostly be a matter of delaying their benefits because they will not be able to use allies utilize spousal benefits. So the only exception. Under the new law is when the lower earnings spouse's benefit is less than fifty percent of the higher earning spouse. Okay. So without knowing what you guys are earning. I can't answer your question on that. So when you send me questions when I ask you to do, please give me your earnings, give me more information. So I can be more specific in my answer. Now, the key thing that you have to know there is that there are according to the social security website. This is this is actually funny because I used to say there are over eight thousand ways to file social security in a lizard emailed, me and said, that's BS. There's no eight thousand different ways. So then I went went on the social security website and social security themselves said, oh, yeah. Well, there's nine thousand one hundred ways. So I thought there were only eight thousand silly me. So. Yeah. Gomer the saw I really admire our government. They have a propensity for creating complexity that is like unbelievable. They should win the Academy Award of complexity, but anyway, there are nine thousand one hundred different ways to file for social security, depending on your age, depending on your income. It does so many variables and your which one of those nine thousand one hundred is yours. I don't know without having your information. So and if you pick the wrong one nine thousand nine nine thousand ninety instead of nine thousand nine hundred ninety two then you pick the wrong one you could leave hundreds if not thousands of dollars on the table and over your lifetime. It could be tens of thousands. So you need to pick the right one. How do you do that? You gotta talk to somebody that understands his stuff in my opinion. All right. So here's what you do you go to our website. It's money matters dot net. Moneymatters dot net and click on meet with an adviser.

"de blasio" Discussed on Max & Murphy on Politics
"Zero nine two eight seven seven and talking about the healthcare proposal, you know, at the press commerce yesterday, obviously officials from the health and hospitals corporation, which will be the source for where this new care will come from spoke. And it's interesting bespoke a lot in last year's about Nitra, but another public system that kind of hit a big crisis de Blasio was health and hospitals, partly because of the Affordable Care Act and the way that changed hospital finance the mayor had to inject a lot of money to keep it afloat. It's still plans to adjust a lot of money. The city does over over the next few years. What was your impression turns the answer the city gave about the capacity of that system to handle the new customers that might becoming the door. If this plan reaches the six hundred thousand folks, the mayor the mayor spoke about. I have to say I a lot of the other reporters of the room were shocked yesterday to hear sort of a lot of good news coming out of health and hospitals in a very short period of time. You know, the mayor alluded to the fact that that the held anonymous corporation all of a sudden is in a much better situation in terms of cash flow. The wait time have dropped dramatically from about three months if the primary care physician earlier this year to one to two weeks. It seems like there's a real story brewing hoping all stills of of kind of a turnaround. You know, and if what everybody was saying yesterday is true. It sounds like the bulls will at some point be prepared to care for all of the people..
