"democratic caucus" Discussed on WTOP
"Of the Democratic Caucus are meeting right now to try to sort out sort of a bit of a family feud involving moderates and progressives. Democratic moderates would like to take a final vote on the $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill that was passed by the Senate. But House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has indicated that won't happen till much later after lawmakers move ahead. And the $3.5 trillion budget resolution. That's the one that progress is really want, and would be the vehicle for Democrats to go it alone in the Senate since Republicans won't support it, But tonight, Democratic leaders are still wrestling with how to carry out a procedural vote ahead of another vote on the budget resolution. If they sort it all out a vote on the budget resolution, as well as some voting rights legislation could take place tomorrow. They would then go back on break until September, when the final votes on all of the spending of more than four trillion Dollars would actually take place. And, of course, all this is taking place Mitch as lawmakers have been getting briefed on Afghanistan. Philipson that's right. Hillary, members of the House Intelligence Committee have been getting briefed by the administration officials. Colorado Democrat Jason Crow is a member of the committee. And he's a military veteran who served in Afghanistan as well as Iraq. He says he's concerned about keeping US military personnel safe in Kabul amid concerns about terror threats such as Isis and safety issues around the airport. That's very, very important right now that we're doing what's necessary to protect the airport. Our soldiers are Marines. And our partners as well. While lawmakers have also been critical of how the Biden administration handled the withdrawal, most say their focus right now is just making sure that Americans and Afghans are able to safely leave Afghanistan. And Mitch on a different matter. U S Capitol police today issued a formal finding related to that deadly shooting that happened in the capital, January. 6th. That's right. This was the shooting of Ashley Babbitt, who was killed as she tried to climb through the window of a broken door outside the House chamber. U. S. Capitol. Police say a review has found that the officer who shot her acted lawfully. The officer will not face discipline since it was determined that lives were at stake. This follows an earlier decision by the Justice Department, saying the officer would not face any charges. There has not been publicly identified. But Capitol police say the officer and the officer's family have been subject to numerous what they call credible and specific threats. Capitol police say the officer's action in their words potentially saved members and staff from serious injury and possible death from the large group of rioters who actually forced their way into the capital. Alrighty. Thanks so much, Mitch, you bet, w. T. O. P's Capitol Hill correspondent Mitchell Miller get you caught up on sports Next 6 14..

"Much for coming on the podcast. You bet bye should be with you. So from what i understand you are in the in the senate and the democratic caucus you are. You're mr filibuster reform. You've been working on this a correct me. If i'm wrong since at least two thousand eleven and from what. I from what i've read you and then senator. Tom udall had put forth a proposal. Filibuster reform proposal and nothing happened. What was that proposal. Well in two thousand eleven we put up a rule change that would have converted as the senate to the talking filibuster restoring strengthening division of debate in the senate because after the five rule change you ended up with this silent invisible obstruction and people. Say why is it. Senate not doing anything while because somebody's about what do you mean there's no there's no one speaking on the floor and that's silent. No effort instruction Has really deeply damage. This place and i did throw myself into that discussion. When i came back to the senate essay coming back senate in two thousand nine.

As an institution that could be made issues and so so with the
Senate Ends Hope for Significant Wage Hike
"So we got the senate doing their senate thing today. Right to vote a rama. There's all these amendments and there was standoff happening in something that happened there today. A seven democrats and one independent who caucuses with democrats joined with republicans to shoot down raising the federal minimum wage to fifteen dollars an hour as part of the biden cove. Relief package among those democratic. Novo's joe manchin of west virginia. Chris coons of delaware. The moment that really stood out was when arizona democrat. Kirsten cinema walked up to cast her. Vote miss cinema cinema. No out she represents arizona. Maybe that was a homage to the late. John mccain. Who famously did that to that. Repeal vote but that full thumbs down from arizona helped end hopes for a really big wage hike that the congressional budget office says directly affect seventeen million american workers on a bringing maria. Teresa kumar co founding president and ceo voto latino fetchacure former senior adviser senate democratic leader harry reid and current advisor to bernie sanders. Faz let me start with you. I want people to understand this. Vote before we analyze us. This was a vote that was going to fail either way. It was essentially a symbolic message. Vote because it needed sixty votes filibuster -able so going into this. Everyone knows it's not gonna be talking to pass. No republicans are going to vote for it. So it's a free ride. It's a layup you get up there and say yes. We want to fifteen our minimum wage. So it was very very surprising to me. A lot of people to see democrats eight of them in the caucus vote. No what is your explanation. Of course you've got to go back in history. A little bit where. President obama suggested raising the minimum wage to ten ten. It was hillary clinton during the two thousand sixteen campaign who suggested raising it to twelve. It was bernie sanders. Who's been pushing along with you to raise the wage to fifteen dollars an hour. And as a result of that we have gotten a lot of progress in the democratic caucus and not all the way clearly and painful. Chris you take senator cinema arizona's got a twelve dollar minimum wage. And in fact if you look at raise the wage which gradually raises the minimum wage to fifteen dollars over five years it would be at twelve fifty by year. Three which is where harris zona is so many ways it doesn't really impact arizona and yet you have center for cinema denying many people. Millions of people around the country are arrays of their wages. Maria wha what did you make so. I used to work in congress. A- as a hill staff for a long time ago on preparations and this was fairly unusual. Because what those eight did was say. That they were not going to deliver the biden agenda in the biden administration. Right now is going to figure out how to channel little lbj and demonstrate that there are consequences when there are not voting down for the presence agenda. As you mentioned. chris. This was a layup but i have to say when we when we witnessed this thumbs down by cinema. I think for a lot of folks people felt at at odds because when john mccain did it it was to save healthcare for millions of americans when she when she did today was turned down. This idea that there was going to be some sort of economic closer to economic committee. For millions of americans and fifteen dollars has even fifteen dollars does not keep pace with the with the inflation rate of the nineteen. Seventies the raiders really. I established it was perplexing on many many fronts but this is an opportunity really for joe biden to say. You're going to have to come down to the white house because we're gonna have a talking
Editor-in-chief of the National Journal, Jeff Dufour, Discusses Manchin's Role in Senate Negotiations
"Let's go live now, with an update on Skype to Jeff Do. Four editor in chief of National Journal. Jeff in the plainest language possible. What did mansion get that caused him to change his mind and end this Well in the context of a $1.9 trillion bill. Uh, not much. These air presents pretty small provision that took nine hours. The final deal essentially is $300 per week of federal unemployment assistance through the end of August, the house had wanted 400. Said. It's bringing it down to 300. It was originally supposed to expire at the end of September. Now it's going to expire at the end of August. Essentially now one of mansions things was he wanted Tonto. To exempt the taxi. You want to accept the tax exemptions from this two households making over $150,000 a year so currently, if you get these jobless benefits, you can deduct tow up to 10,000 of that from from your taxes. He said. That shouldn't apply. If you make more than 100 $50,000 a year in your household, and it appears the Senate is going to agree to that now, the votes technically still open, even though they supposedly have a deal. I mean time wise. A lot was made out of Senator Ron Johnson last night, forcing the clerk to read the entire bill, which took hours. But this one vote on one Amendment has now taken longer than that did last night. And this is the first vote in what they billed as a vote A Rama quote unquote to come. So they're in for a lot of overtime in the Senate this weekend, the Senate record as you mentioned for longest vote has been broken again because all of this the previous record was from back in 2019. Is this something like the longest vote a sign of serious dysfunction on the hill? Or is it a sign of something else? I don't know The dysfunction is any greater than it has been in years past, which is still pretty significant, But it's combining that dysfunction with a 50 50 senate. I think I think we know a couple things now going forward Number one. This bill is probably going to go to the house like this weekend. Like you said, we're barring anything else on foreseen. They're gonna sense that the president for his signature, it's gonna give Biden his first big victory as president. But maybe more importantly, we know now that any significant legislation like this is going to be a real slaughter and a real challenge to pass vote Counting is critical. And there's all kinds of procedural hurdles that a senator, One senator can throw in the way in a 50 50 Senate now that applies to three bills at the House passed this past week that high up on their agenda. The voting rights package. The George Floyd policing reform and extending civil rights toe LGBT Q Americans, It's going to apply the unorganized labor bill and and gun legislation that they hope to pass this week. Those five just to name a few are all going to need 60 votes in the Senate. And if I were a betting man, I'd say they're not going to get it for most of them. President Biden, who you could almost jokingly say it's still a senator. He's you know, inextricably linked to the U. S. Senate, he called mansion directly. One wonders whether this deal could have been done without the president's efforts. And some people, I suppose, would be encouraged to see that he's getting involved. Others would say, Man, it's a bad sign that the president has to get directly involved like that. And I would also say this is probably not going to be the last conversation that by the mansion have during this Congress, because, uh, mansion is for people who count these things. Mansion is the most centrist member of the entire Senate. He is the swing vote. In the Democratic caucus, and he's the most important vote in the Senate right now, and he knows it. He's gonna exact every bit of power he can out of this toe, get what he wants for his state and for his And just for his for his views to make sure that whatever passes the Senate reflects his

Jamaal Bowman unseats veteran Rep. Eliot Engel in New York primary
"Biggest upset of the primary season. So far, Jamal Bowman has unseated New York's long serving Democratic congressmen. Elliott angle. Bowman is a former school principal from the Bronx, and the race was widely seen as a contest between the parties Progressive Wing and the Democratic Old Guard the continuation of the dynamics in two years ago in New York. With the election of Alexandria. Ocasio Cortez. Jamal Bowman is here with me now. Welcome and congratulations. Thank you. Thank you so much for having me. So you ran on a progressive platform in one of the bluest district in the country, New York 16th. But now, you know, I want to look ahead with you. Assuming you do end up in Congress, which is what most people are assuming, Let's just talk about how you intend to work with the rest of the Democratic caucus in the House. I want to start with the fact that you ran on Medicare for all. But the presumptive Democratic nominee for President Joe Biden, opposes Medicare for all. So how do you expect Democrats to resolve this issue on health care? A lot of conversation. Ah, lot of dialogue, Lather debate lot of listening a lot of learning on a lot of bridging the gap. I mean, the bottom line is the majority of the American people support Universal health care, a single payer system and Medicare for all, they supported that prior to the culvert pandemic, and now that we are living with in the midst of that pandemic. People supported and higher numbers. But here's the challenge. I mean, more generally. Obviously, this is a general election year. What do you say to the argument that pushing liberal policies during a presidential election year progressive policies? Could alienate voters in swing states and swing district. I don't think they will again when the majority of the American people are surveyed and pulled on this issue, the majority of the people support This particular issue, But beyond Medicare, for all, I mean, how do you make ideas like the green New deal or de funding the police popular in moderate district's? We're living in a different country at this moment, then we were even six or eight months ago. We have over 40 million people out of work as a result of the pandemic, So we need a federal jobs guarantee under the umbrella of a green new deal. We have kids who are losing quality education town because of the pandemic. So we need to fully fund our public schools called it disproportionately impacts. Those were upper respiratory illness as it relates to environmental injustice, So we need to deal with the environmental emergency. All of the things that we've kept swept under the rug for decades are now coming to light. As a longtime educator. What do you think? Is the single most important thing lawmakers Khun do to make life better for black Children? We need to start with a process of truth and reconciliation and really reckoning with our history of racial injustice and the legacy of slavery and how it continues to persist in all of our communities, and as we craft policy and worked together, we have to also look at the implementation of that policy, not from the perspective of a Scarcity, mindset or a zero sum game. This is about collaboration, cooperation and working together the build the country that works for everyone, But can you be specific? Can you talk about one specific policy idea that you would like to push? To get passed through Congress that could actually get past. By a Republican led Senate If the Senate does not flip in 2020 We need to give people back to work first and foremost, when we talk about full over 40 million people who have lost their jobs, their happening in Republican states and districts as well. We need to finally deal with economic inequality in our country. You need to make sure the wealthy pay their fair share and large corporations pay federal taxes so that we can invest in the people of our country. Get people back to work. A lot of comparisons have been drawn between you and Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, also a progressive Democrat. What have you learned watching her navigate her first term in office. Is there anything you intend to do differently? Well, I've learned that it's okay to be myself. You know, Congresswoman Ocasio Cortez eyes a tremendous leader. She's brilliant. She's fearless, going against a system of white male supremacy, a cz. She's broken a glass ceiling in that system and created species. For new conversations that center, the working class and those who are most vulnerable. So I've I've learned it's okay to be myself and speak truth to power on the issues that matter, most to the people who have been mostly forgotten.

"I was talking to someone on the campaign today and they were saying they absolutely love the circular firing squad of the Democrats on both the candidates and then of course the unrest in the Democratic Caucus. Just how how the speaker handles it is a fascinating question but it's worth noting that this all began or at least this latest set of grievances with Speaker Pelosi Telling Maureen Dowd in an interview basically that these four women have a four votes and that's really and they don't matter that much in Pelosi in the same way we saw a O._C.. Today be very deliberate and those on the record comments <hes> with my colleagues at the Post Speaker Pelosi does very little that is not calculated and deliberate and precise so she she is trying to isolate these members. You could see her sort of continuing with this strategy. She is incredibly steely that something even the president respects about her and one of the real questions is is what Speaker Pelosi said true that it's just four members for loud members with a very loud social media following but just four votes or are they going to do something like the has freedom caucus did on the right where they get a block of members together who can actually block democratic initiatives and really make us speaker Pelosi's life difficult because they have the power they have the massive votes that can actually change the way her conference votes enforcer to sort of move further to the left and towards their policy goals and it's only Wednesday night thanks to our friends Ashley Parker and Phil Rucker for agreeing to stick around and talk about this topic on top of everything else we appreciate it coming up the Intel chiefs made clear to Congress today the extent of the threat to our next election.

"And I look forward to the conversation tonight and playing you some great jazz music. Thank you very much. Thank you, congressman. It seems like every time you come meet for our editorial board. I said, well, this is amazing timing. Here we are again. Let me ask you mention the Bob Mueller statement, the day, Tim minutes statement and in, even though he didn't go any further than he had in the report. It seemed to almost give a jolt of adrenalin to the pro impeachment porches on within the democratic caucus. Do you think his statement was a game changer? And, and how does what is it say about actually seen his physical presence on TV versus reading this four hundred forty eight patriot court. You know, I don't know whether it was a game changer. I don't know that it was a game changer on impeachment because, as you say there really weren't a lot of new facts, maybe any new facts in what he had to say. And it may be that his very appearance was an opportunity. For those that had reached that point already to declare themselves in favour of peach mint. But he did underscore how seeing is believing being Abbott. Hear from someone about the work. They did that conclusions. They reached has an impact that the dry written word doesn't have. It's one thing to read the report, it's another to have Don Mcgann testify before the American people. The president asked me to fire. Bob muller. And then later asked me to lie about it. And this is what he said. The president. And his diplo city should be exposed of base, and wrongful and obstructive conduct of his should be exposed. And in many ways, the mullahs report is a skeletal summary of the facts. And there are a great many facts that go well, beyond those written pages and American people have a right to here. They ought to know who their president is, and it certainly would help guide us in deciding whether this man should be removed from office, whether those proceedings should be initiated, regardless of the result in the Senate. We spoke a little bit tax stage about speaker Pelosi is really critical role in all of this. And here she is trying to navigate she, she wants to have him thought ical investigation as he's said many times. Before they begin impeachment that you should really have an iron clad case against the president will move people who otherwise might not be move to course, there's some people who aren't going to be at all we know with ours on their jest. But what do you think of the way she's handling it? And how long do you think she can keep some of the more liberal impeachment? Now members at bay. This speaker often remarks these days how the times have found us. That is. I think so. Completely correct? As to Nazi Pelosi the times have found Nancy Pelosi. She is the. She is the absolute right woman for the hour. And I, I do not know anyone else in our caucus that could play the role that she is so well, both in standing up to the president in how she stands up to the president in how she keeps our caucus together. Now, the fact that we are. We have members that are very pro impeachment and very against impeachment whatnot. Keeping us. Together doesn't mean forcing us all to have the same view. It does mean that we keep our caucus organized pulling together with our priorities first and foremost and intact. I don't know anyone else who could do that at such a difficult and perilous moment. So I think she's doing just a phenomenal job in in. In. Nobody is better than Nancy Pelosi getting under the skin of this president. That is true. He does. I know what that's probably brought her some goodwill in the cockpits. Not. Yes. No. I think there is just great recognition, and respect within the caucus, as there is in the country. For how she's handled us how deftly, she's handled this situation. And how in every confrontation that she has with the president. Her stature is only enhanced and his is only diminished..

"Democratic caucus and primary contests up to an including Super Tuesday will have polling specific to New Hampshire and South Carolina, along with aggregate polling from those states, plus the other fifteen were contest will be held starting on February third in Iowa through March the third which is Super Tuesday in that aggregate of eighteen early contest states. Former vice president, Joe Biden is leading the field of candidates with thirty one percent of voter support senators Elizabeth Warren and Bernie. Sanders are behind him with seventeen and sixteen percent respectively. Senator Kamla Harris frowns out. Our top tier at ten percent. Our next group has mayor Pete Buddha. Judge polling at eight percent. Former congressman Beto, aerobic at five and senators Cory Booker, and Amy klobuchar polling at two percent. The rest of the field comes in with one percent of the vote or less. Joining us to tell us more about this. First batch of polling as well as what we can look forward to this campaign season is CBS news, elections, and serve, as director, Anthony Salvato, Anthony, I know you live for this. Explain what's so different about the battleground tracker well promises to be election. So we've got to go big with the polling, and what that means is talking to more people than we ever have before more than you'll see in most other polls and means being in the states that really matter, the district's, even that are going to matter and award delegates, but mostly, Margaret, it means putting this in. Terms that voters can relate to understanding how they think about this race and getting beyond the horse race. So, for example, you mentioned as clear and all these early states, Joe Biden is leading when we posters come along, and it has who are you going to vote for in six months, but it's early. So what are doing? They're considering some of these candidates when we ask them which candidate might choose. Then we see a much closer contest. We see warrant under consideration certainly Sanders Harris into a lesser extent Buddha. Judge those are the folks that really define that top tier. And those are the folks that voters are starting to narrow their choices already in this big field. You also see differences in what voters want in a candidate in general, and that's what I want to ask you, what are voters looking for whether a divide among Democrats? Yeah. In fact, there is we asked people, which are the party's message Bache should it be that the party would if they win return things to the way, they were before President Trump took office, obviously. Democrats wanted to feed President Trump, or should the party press for a more progressive, or liberal agenda than it's ever had before, and there's differences in vote choice, based on how people divide on that. The folks who go with more of that return message are much more for Joe Biden, but the folks who say they want more progressive agenda. Well there, you've got him next. Not just Biden, but also wore in Sanders. Really jockeying with him for the top spot, and what makes someone electable that's the word that gets thrown around account a lot, right? So what we did was we turn people into political strategist so a little bit. And maybe they do a better job than a lot of the folks in this town. We ask them, what do you think has the best chance to beat President Trump and by and large? They think that Joe Biden does have a very good chance. The other candidates when voters try to game out those chances place, the more at a maybe they can win. Then a definite we went. That's one of the big things that's propelling Joe Biden, but then we went a little further and we. Said, okay. Democrat, tell us what you think swing voters are going to want come that general election in twenty twenty in other words, not you. But what do you think others are looking for exactly? So as they game that out Democrats say they think those swing voters, the ones they gotta try to lure back to the party might more might be more inclined to want a moderate, and even a white male for those swing voters. They think it'd be concerned about raising gender, even as the Democrats themselves, of course, have the most diverse primary field in history. Most diverse also was crowded that we have seen, and that's one of those questions that we often ask when we're talking to candidates is, is that hurting you that this field is so full twenty four candidates. So is it? I mean, why are there so many well, there's so many in part, because I think the rules, incentivize this, which is to say this year, the Democrats had changed their rules. So that party leaders in elected officials. Don't have as much say in the initial part of the contest as they used to. They got rid of what they called super delegates, that of this is a response to twenty sixteen definitely response to twenty sixty when a lot of Democrats felt that those party leaders may have had their fingers on the scale for Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders. So this year, you've got much more power, at least in that I run with voters and electing delegates to the convention. That's one reason and the other is that was such a front loaded schedule a lot of big states are going to be holding their contests early. Not just the ones you mentioned in California, Texas, etc. That brings a very diverse electorate into the mix. And so a lot of candidates feel like well they can pick up delegates and all those different places. Maybe why not take a shot. And that's one reason why you're going to see so many candidates on those stages, come next week, Anthony. I know we'll be talking to.

So this happened before her scheduled eleven AM eating at the White House to talk infrastructure was supposed to be round two of infrastructure. Right. So she emerged from that meeting went to the microphones spoke longer than this. But this is the part that I guess, got the president so freaked out. And you believe that it's important to follow the facts we believe that no one is above the law, including the president of the United States. And we believe that the president of the United States is engaged in a cover up. Oh, cover up nature. Okay.

You can talk about presidential candidates all you want. You can talk about certain members of congress. But the ones who are actually in the room at the table negotiating this have been talking about. She didn't die. You look at the packages that Democrats have passed in the past and that they are promoting today the democratic majority in the congress is for investing overall wars security and. But the problem, I respect you tremendously. But this is the problem is that this is all you guys wanna talk about let me finish the point. I was trying to hear about it. It's an issue that is a crazy everybody. Whether there is more to immigrate to immigration than just a wall as hard as you guys want to make it about that. Hey, there is more than just a wall. I hold on hold on. The number of immigration review when the Democrats killed it in two thousand zero have caught me off Republicans supposedly agreeing upon border security technology, and so forth, where they disagree is is that the majority of the democratic caucus don't want money for a border wall. Here here is so much more that needs to be done at this prejudice. I go not talk about there is a humanitarian issue.

"Be suspended. I say absolutely what say you. We'll talk about it this afternoon after five Jon Allen, WLS AM ninety welcome back. This is the Ben Shapiro show. So the Democrats have basically come up with an approach so that they don't have to countenance. The fact that anti-semites now run their caucus, and they do L Anamar retreated to leave. They now run the democratic caucus Nancy Pelosi is willing not only to countenance them. But to let them run the caucus, she's satisfied to do this. They will not pass a resolution, even condemning generalized religious bigotry after Representative Ilhan, Omar comes forth with three anti semitic statements in the course of five weeks. Nothing. Nada nil. Zippo, zilch. Instead they will rely on a three-pronged lie. It's the three pronged one anti-semitism is not actually anti-semitism. She's not an anti Semite. How do we know? Well, Democrats say she's not an afro even though every Jew legitimately virtually every June. The United States knows what Omar said is anti semitic. We're supposed to pretend it's not as poof, you don't gonna believe Ilhan are your own lying is this is the way that the Democrats have decided to address this is not anti-semitic knowing nothing to see here. No anti-semitism. It's fine. It's all fine approach number two. Well, if she said, something anti semitic. It's because she is ignorant, and she doesn't really know what she's talking about. This. Of course is not hold water an adult. An adult human. She's two years older than I am with two children. She's been married twice. And she sits in congress ignorance doesn't cut it. She's been doing this for entire career. And then approach number three. Okay. So what she said, it's not great what she really meant was that Israel is bad, and we shouldn't support Israel, and we should rethink our support for Israel. Now, again, you can criticize Israel lots of folks do on every side, that's not making anti semitic. But that's how our did. She suggested that Jewish money was behind American Israel support. She suggested that American supporters of Israel are subject to to dual loyalties really showing their allegiance for Israel or their allegiance for money, and she has suggested basically openly at this point that Israel should exist. There's that as well. But don't worry Democrats have this. Well in hand, they're just going to pretend that anti-semitism in their own caucus doesn't exist. You've got representatives that Kim Jeffries. Who says listen, it's it's just you're responsible to assert. There's the rise of anti-semitism in our party. I mean, where did you come to that conclusion? Oh, you mean from the Semites standing right there who were going to continue to give Plum spots input on the cover of. Rolling Stone ones. That generally say there is not a rise of anti-semitism in the house of Representative. There's a rise of antisemitic behavior and activity and violence in the country. And it's irresponsible for Mitch McConnell to try to politicize this issue anti-semitism isn't a political issue. It's an issue that we all need to collectively address and do it in a nonpartisan way and not fan the flames of division, but trying to promote Mitch McConnell's political agenda. That's the height of their responsibility. All the real problem is Mitch McConnell. Oh, it Senator McConnell, the one who didn't say Nancy semitic thing or defend the anti Semite. Oh, him amazing. Many of those speaking out Wednesday, according to the Washington Post for members of the Congressional Black caucus who bristled at the notion that Omar would be targeted for rebuke, even an indirect one. I think there's a big rise in anti-semitism and racism, and that's a bigger conversation. We need to be having said Representative Cedric Richmond of Louisiana, but it starts at sixteen hundred. Avenue. It doesn't start with one member at four hundred thirty five members of congress. Okay. Now Z Steve king. Here's the king. You say that it starts with Trump. It doesn't start with congress. Okay. Well, where were you on hold? Steve king thing people are damn wires. Trump's words over the years where particularly galling to members of the CBC. No, that's not what's going on here. The CBC just doesn't give a crap about semitism. They've been hobnobbing with Louis Farrakhan for years. Inside the meeting, according to multiple people present house speaker Pelosi tried to keep your caucus focus on a plan. Friday, vote on a sweeping campaign and elections reform Bill should knowledged internal issues, and she urged members not to question. The motivations of our colleagues. Don't have to question. The motivations Bill Marsh made them pretty damn clear said you can just agree wholeheartedly, but do not questioned their patriotism or their loyalty to our country in any way, and that holds for the Republicans as well, why hope that that is her trading, Omar. Walking into the meeting. He said the Omar situation would be resolved. And she chastised. The news media said I think you make more of it than there is to be honest with you the press loves to foment unease in the Democratic Party, but we are very United but moments later, multiple house members serve to challenge the decision endorsed by Pelosi and the rest of the House Democratic leadership to move forward with resolution condemning religious hatred initially, the measure targeted only anti-semitism, but with some Democrats pushing for a direct view, Omar by Tuesday nights leaders decided to expand it to include anti Muslim bias, which of course, is not the same thing. There are two different categories trying to lump all bigotry together under one broad rubric, ignores special bigotry that anti-semitism represents which of course, is the reason why Democrats are doing that Representative Bonnie Watson Coleman of New Jersey was among the first numbers to speak up. And why are we doing this? She said any resolution is redundant and unnecessary should continue to engage in. This discussion is simply an opportunity to give the media Republicans distractions from our agenda, and then they suggested that Jim Jordan was an anti Semite because he referred to Tom Steyer as Tom Sawyer and the dollar sign first of all. Tom Sawyer, isn't Jewish. He's a Piscopo alien his dad converted to a Piscopo. Liam second of all referring to Tom sire. As a major donor happens to be the truth. He is a major donor. That is not the same thing as saying the Jewish money controls congress. This is it's so obviously intellectually dishonest we need to have equity in our outrage said Representative Ileana Presley of Massachusetts. She said we need to be focused on Trump. Now, this is an excuse for you, not to focus on your own member in the same way that focusing on Elliot Abrams was away for the Democrats not to focus on nNcholas Maduro in Venezuela. Now, they're going to nor anti-semitism because it has beneficial for them to do. So.

Eight six six ninety redeye you know, one of the things I I wonder erica's as we go through this year. Senator the democrat Senator Sharar Brown called Trump, racists the other day. Okay. But there was another democrat. I'm trying to find it who just here in the last couple of weeks said no, I don't believe that he's a a a racist. And and I'm trying to find this here. There. It. House Democratic caucus chairman Hakeem Jeffries said he does not believe Trump racist. Okay. And that was what I was looking for. And I just I wondered number one because he said that and then just in general Americans how well is that going to sell in twenty twenty when you for example in and I thought this. People are very worried these days about their brand and being branded wrong in the commercial. Marketplace. You can't be associated with a true racist and expect to get sponsors for almost anything. Right. Right. This past weekend. The picture taken publicized all over the place. Tiger woods. Jack nNcholas golfing with Donald Trump. People in both those men involved in business interest all over the world and in the United States. Tiger Woods not afraid at all to be seen with Donald Trump. No does the demographic. Or the does the research out there show that most Americans think that's a pile of horse hockey. Because remember with Trump were where does he issue of Trump a racist? Come from. It's one incident. That he clarified immediately. And that was the Mexicans are rapists comment right means some legal immigrants had come over and he clarified it right after that is really the one though the one incident. Then again, when he was talking about both sides have have have a good people with the Virginia thing. Right. Remember what that, but if you understand the point that he was making that could be taken many different ways, including the ways that it wasn't racist at all. Including the comment that he made, you know, about a Mexicans. We said, no I'm talking about illegal immigrants that commit crime. There are many of them not all of them, but many of them he clarified. I didn't mean all Mexicans and he made that clear, but that's what's really stuck with them. If you go in his past. Might don't believe there's any black face incidents. Are they're not that. I'm aware of any any you probably not going to have a Donald Trump kind of governor Northam press conference. No, we're those kind of things are in his past because we'd already know them by now, wouldn't we I would think so who was it. I think it was Joe Scarborough who said last week on morning show that he's never Trump makeup. And I believe I believe he's saying it because he's known him in the past. Never heard Trump say racist thing ever. We've talked about all the different business interests. And all the people that he's worked with over the decades, a bean intensely involved with people and probably talking to people in the way that he talks in his crude way, correct? Has anybody coming out and saying that he's a racist that had had business interests with him? And he used language that was that was racist on a consistent basis. No. I guess my point..

"Come off the wall as it is presently being offered, and we don't have any indication that speaker Pelosi and the democratic caucus, including leaders shoe. Is going to come off their point with they're saying, no money for the wall. I don't know where the compromise is in that. But to Amy king's point, the president has taken this step in a very public way to say, okay. Democrats the ball is in your court. I am telling you and the American people at the same time. This is what I'm offering. It's not just about a wall. It's also about taking the first steps to rehabilitate and reform our immigration system, which he says been broken for decades. And he's correct. Yes. And the also he's trying to offer a humanitarian approach to it with there is some concern for the families. Not only the ones who are already here. But the families who may be thinking of coming here as far as offering some sort of solution to how they may apply for asylum and not necessarily have another. This is my phrase migrant caravan coming to the border, which there are a couple more headed here. Yeah. I mean. I don't know. If the migrate caravan is the problem or the backup at the border is the problem. I think it's all a problem, which is what compounds and he said if we come up with this deal, it's not going to solve everything it's going to it's going to address this immediate crisis. And then if you're listening he said, you know, and my my goal would be with the state of everything in DC. It would be interesting to see if this could even happen to be said, I wanna do weekly meetings. I want us to meet and talk about how we can address this not only as a like a band aid as a quick fix to start the process, but how we can complete the fixed the process, and if you're listening to that in a few believed it or you don't believe it. But can't we all agree that that would be the ultimate goal is to actually have our government do something and accomplish something as opposed to kicking the can down the road again. Absolutely. I would say at least four presidents have kicked that can down the road for various reasons. Part of it. Was an unwillingness to address it part of it was an inability to handle it. There are a lot of things which go into solving the immigration problem. But here's my concern. I wonder whether the president will undermine his own message inside a forty eight hours. Whether he will say things, which are not in the spirit of what he said today. I wonder if he will tweet things which are anesthetic to the humanitarian spirit, which he expressed today, whether he renders his whole message moot because he may not like the response from speaker Pelosi that's my concern. And if we're going to use this as a building block, then you can't kick out the block. As you start building. There has to be some degree of consistency. So there is a degree of trust not just from the Democrats. But also from the American people that the president sincerely wants to handle this problem in terms of immigration. Also from the humanitarian standpoint, one of the largest criticisms that I've seen and read and heard is they're not sure whether the president cares about the people who are coming to this country and some of his rhetoric has been very troublesome. And that's why many people are lows to to deal with the president on this issue. If the president can be consistent if what we saw today, and what we heard today is who President Trump is going to be a week from now, then I believe the pendulum swings in his favor because then he will have demonstrated. Hey, I'm here. I'm doing this. I am. True to this. And I'm being consistent. This is the first step. I've offered this. And hopefully, we'll get away from the name calling and actually get to the business of bridge building. And if he if you stuck to the plan, which he outlined today and address that issue of whether he actually cares. The plan includes eight hundred million dollars for urgent humanitarian assistance right off the bat. And also the new judge teams to reduce the court backlog, and he also announced a measure to protect migrant children from abuse. Didn't really go into details on that. But that was part of it. And then as you mentioned the new system to allow people to apply for Silom in their own country and also to reunify unaccompanied children. Here's the real problem having nothing to do with speaker Pelosi, and this is something which is not been discussed. Can you get sixty Senate Democrats to agree? He did mention leader Senate Democrats. I mean, sixty total Democrats total you need eight Democrats, Democrats, right? Seven eight seven seven Democrats. I'm sorry. Devote? This is why we're in radio. We didn't major in math. Yeah. You're going to need seven Democrats. But let's look in between. Let's read between the lines. In that Senate chamber five to ten or probably running for president. Five to ten of them are running for president and would be very wary of voting for anything which would give the president. Specifically a win. It's not fair. But it's a fact I'm just telling you how this government works. You're gonna need seven Democrats. Because leader Schumer is not going to help out. But on the flip side of that. At least five of them are are running for president. Right. Yes. And so. Does that way into their decision as well? You can resist resist resist or does it say. I'm willing to work to make things work for the country and actually increase their cloud or make them look better. I it could it could. I just don't know how that plays for their specific constituency in the short term. That's a fascinating idea. But heretofore, we've not seen the democratic senators be willing to break ranks like that in the house. Maybe so I think they're going to be some defections in the house because there's just so many. But if we can run the list in terms of the Senate, you're talking about Senator Harris Senator Elizabeth Warren. Cory booker. I'm just a Kirsten gillibrand that's four right there. Pretty hardcore. Yes. Against working, right? With the other side. I don't know of someone in other words. So you're you're you're seven is not gonna come from them. I don't believe I don't believe if it's a lesser known Senator or someone or a Joe man-, Joe Manchin. Yeah, you jail. He's always in the spotlight. They come over or not. And I believe in his heart of hearts, Joe mansion is a Republican. But you know, he wants to stay in office and the Democrats a democratic voters put him back in office because there was a time which he was thinking about switching parties or he was there was an appeal for him to switch parties. I don't know if you can find seven and that would be the magic number because this has to pass both the house and Senate it's dead on arrival from what we read right now. With the house speaker Pelosi, and I know some people think well what about the deal last year? That pass. Well, there was a different house. You had forty fewer Democrats at that time. The numbers are different. The votes are different the mood is different. So what may pass before is unlikely to pass? Now, there's there's really no discernible way to to predict where this is going to go whether personal political. Aspirations are going to have an undue effect on this process because you need sixty votes in the Senate. I just don't know where those seven democratic votes are going to come from can you get two or three? Yeah. Baby. Four possibly but in today's environment. Seven is a hell of a lot a hell of a lot win. Specifically. This is a time in which the Democratic Party is uniform in their desire to resist this president right now. Right now more so than even before because with control of the house, there's certain things that you can do having nothing to do with the Senate, you can do to thwart the president's agenda. This is very high on the president's agenda, and the Democrats have made it clear that they feel that they have to win this particular battle in this manner reason being because in a couple of months with they're going to be right back here for the debt ceiling. This is going to start all over again. And if the Democrats don't close ranks right now or lease. They're thinking if they don't close ranks right now. The same thing's going to happen for the debt ceiling, this is not a true negotiation yet, this is the first offer by the president speaker Pelosi if you're just tuning in as we recount the remarks of the president speaker Pelosi has already said she said before the speech unacceptable. She said during the speech, it's a non starter. There is no agreement which is going to be had in the short term and. I firmly believe it does not matter who gets the blame here. It doesn't matter. The people who support the Democrats are going to support the Democrats the people's sport Republicans that the president going to support the Republicans and the president because why there no consequences here, you have the people at the border and for the people who are suffering during the shutdown, but the consequences in terms of punishing the people responsible for the shutdown there. No consequences to be had for them. There are no consequences for for speaker Pelosi. There are no consequences for the president. Honestly, there are no consequences. Now, we can say people going to remember this come election day in twenty twenty. No, there will be a thousand things which have changed between now. And then there will be a thousand things between now and Friday. So I think it's overblown in terms of people trying to argue that either the Democrats are going to get the blame specifically or the president is going to put his presidency imperilled. If he does not get the wall that he'll start losing his base. I don't believe either that because like the president and the democratic leaders are dug in so are Republicans and Democrats if you look at any of the polling eighty percent of the people who are Republican say, Yep. Stick to eighty percent of the Democrats who are against the president say knows no wall. Where do you come and find that middle ground? Although again with the with the president, and it'll be interesting to see what he tweets than the next two days. But the address today said to everyone. I'm willing to deal I'm willing to make an offer. And if that's where I think it gets interesting for the Democrats because and then they go we're just sitting here saying, no let let's how does that work. Let's let's let's hypothetically say the Democrats say a firm. No, we reject this. We told the president that this is a nonstarter. We are not going to give him any money for the wall. Now right now in terms of polling. The president is behind speaker Pelosi right now in terms of polling as far as the perception of the shutdown whose fault it is. Right. And let's say this speech, and the subsequent response closes that gap or evens up the perception does that move the meter four speaker Pelosi, I don't think so and we call the Democrats obstructionists or obstinate the Democrats said the same thing about the Republicans during the Obama shut down. It doesn't really matter. I mean. President Trump was elected. And you you had a Republican House Republican Senate. That's why I think people over blow the whole idea of who gets the blame for the shutdown and people are gonna remember come election time that historically has not been the case. So if if speaker Pelosi should lose some momentum here. Maybe she's more inclined to deal, but I don't think she is going to publicly acquiesce, I think this was going to have to be some sort of like, for example, is she rejects this deal..
"democratic caucus" Discussed on The Ben Shapiro Show
"If folks like Ilhan, Omar who said that Israel is is deceiving. The world you have folks like Rashida to live who's I mentioned yesterday invited an actual terrorist supporter to her swearing in. This guy actually supports Hezbollah openly. You've got Alexander Okaz Cortez meets and dances with anti-semites L. Sharpton a guy who helped incite riots in crown heights against Jews who wants called us diamond merchants and white interlopers and ranted if the Jews wanna get it on tell them to pin. Their yarmulkes is back and come over to my house. Sharpton is still a member in respect in the democratic caucus. They're twenty one different members of the democratic caucus who have met with and taking pictures of Louis Farrakhan, none of them have disassociated from Louis Farrakhan. So far as I'm aware. None and Democrats aren't forced to do. It is really amazing. There are few journalists. Jake tapper CNN has asked Democrats about this before. But Democrats have never actually attempted to cleanse anti-semitism from the ranks. Why because Jews are not part of the intersectional mission. Be anti-black that obviously is banned inside the democratic caucus as well. It should be but being anti Jewish not so much because Jews are just normal white people accept very successful even more successful than normal white people. So they've benefited from white privilege, which means that Jews are not historic victims. Which means that if they are the victims of anti-semitism now, we simply ignore it. Because it's not a reflection of an underlying American political problem. It's really incredible to make a Mallory women's March leader shoes on the view yesterday. And she was free with kid gloves by everybody on the view with regard to Louis Farrakhan, and her association with wolves Farrakhan, whom she has called the greatest of all time except for Megan McCain who asked her the only question that most members of the media will never ask a democrat. Which is why don't you just condemn his anti-semitism and watch as to make them. Allie tries to slip out of it. It's incredible women's March unequivocably condemns anti-semitism bigotry and Dan fair remarks about Jewish pizzas. And we have. Heatedly I don't speak for Jewish people. But I think I'm just confused. These remarks are I mean, they goes on death to Israel over and over again, we did not make those you can't. Associating with a man when I don't agree with many of them minister Farrakhan's statement, you condemn them. I don't agree with these statements at the end of the day. Well, condemn it. No. No. No, right. And you can see Meghan McCain nodding her head you won't condemn it. Because she won't come it. Because Democrats will never condemn any other member of the intersectional coalition. They feel will forward their goals. In other words, racism and anti-semitism on the part of leftists are total totally fine. According to vast swaths of the Democratic Party on the right? And least we try to police at least we may maybe we fail in policing. Sometimes I'll admit that the right sometimes fails to police properly, but at least we try, and it is a point of high irritations me that whenever the rite cleanses somebody from the ranks, whatever the right reacts to people like Steve king in the proper fashion that the left's I move as well, Steve king was ever in your caucus in the first place is kind of telling don't you think, you know, it's more telling to me what's more telling to me is that the Democratic Party is more than happy to accept open anti-semites into its ranks cheer them. Calling the fresh faces of the Democratic Party and pretend like nothing is wrong. And that the real discrimination exists on the right? It's absolutely maddening. When will the media start asking Democrats to actually condemn Louis Farrakhan? When will the media start asking Democrats, it's totally fine to appear three chairs down from Louis Farrakhan, Retha Franklin's funeral wound? Ask Bill Clinton that question. Why I promise you? If David Duke showed up at somebody's funeral and Republican standing three chairs down that Republican would never stop being asked about it..
"democratic caucus" Discussed on The 11th Hour with Brian Williams
"I think it's very hard to Pete somebody who's done a great job. That's number one. And and we even talked about that today. I said why don't you use this for impeachment an ANSI said, we're not looking to impeach you. I said that's good Nazi. That's good. But you know, what? You don't impeach people when they're doing a good job, and you don't apiece people when there was no collusion because there was no collusion that was the president of today. Addressing the possibility of impeachment now that the Democrats control the house as you might have heard his comments were in response to a freshman member of congress who use some very colorful non-family language to push the issue on her first day on the job. People love you. And you win when your son looks at you and says momma, look, you one bullies don't win. And maybe they talked because we're going to go on there going to teach them. Show us your imagination there. The new house leadership isn't necessarily ready to commit to making impeachment a priority. Here is the new speaker. You have to weigh the equities that is not the position of the House Democratic caucus on the equity. Wade is that's freedom of speech and individual member say generation Lee that would not be line which I would use. But nonetheless, I don't I don't think we should make a big deal of it. I really don't now NBC's Jonathan Allen who joins us again in just a moment. Summed up this dynamic today. And this got our attention, quote, it didn't take long for newly empowered House Democrats to lose control of their message on the possible impeachment of President Donald Trump less than a day. So back with us the aforementioned Jonathan Allen, we talked into spending even more time with us, and Jonathan friend of mine likes to say never underestimate the Democrats ability to screw things up. A be a lot of these young. Tim Kratz were elected. They believe on a voting wish in the liberal districts on a platform of impeaching this guy. Absolutely. And then even a lot of Democrats in districts where they're represented by more moderate members believe in that potential that you're seeing right now is there is a democratic base. That is hungry to see see Donald Trump removed from office. Obviously a lot of them would like to see that happen to twenty twenty at the ballot box. But a lot of people believe that there there is already evidence enough for impeachment. There is this push among the democratic electorate for that. And the counterweight right now is that they're very degrees. Among the democratic elected officials as to what the merits of that all right now, whether it's wise to do it both in terms of the prudence of the constitutional question of whether anything Donald Trump has done rises to the level of high crimes and misdemeanors. And then, of course, the political question of whether it's advantages or disadvantageous for them to move forward. Right now. Obviously, Nancy Pelosi's argument is that they should wait for the mother report to come forward. Most of the democratic elected officials. I talked to today. Most of the House Democrats I talked to. Said that they believe that they should wait for the mullahs report that it made sense to wait for that to see what he comes to what conclusions. He draws before they decide whether or not to move forward. I believe watching a good bit of the other network that Fox News is planning to run and Republicans are against the Democrats as if congresswoman Okaz CEO Cortes, the new very young democrat from New York is president of the United States, even though her name will not be on the ballot. She is pushing a goal of being free of. Of a fossil fuels in twelve years. Forget about cars. No one has said how we would fly. And in an interview coming up this weekend on sixty minutes. She's talking about a seventy percent tax bracket for those quote at the tippy top of the American earning population. So this is going to be a real learning experience for young congresswoman for this political party and for the Republican party, and we found out today..

Some mending the results of November's midterms Murphy. Pelosi and one by one votes came in for the woman now third in line to the Oval Office. Hello, see an ANSI Pelosi knows what she's doing here. She would tell you Democrats created this way by focusing on kitchen table issues. Right. Putting constituents families. I so what does she do? She tells members of congress sent you kidding grandkids up here for the most iconic though walk of the day. I now call the house to order on behalf of all of America's children. Pelosi makes history again, and it's always historic when chambers switches hands, but the real history of this moment was as you looked around the room. See in one thousand nine hundred ninety Democrats had sixteen women in the House Republicans had thirteen yesterday. There were more than eighty nine women on the democratic side among the youngest female member Alexandria, Cossio Cortez. The first native American women in congressional history. The first Muslim women one of them sworn in on Thomas Jefferson's Koran. The other noted she had I arrived in Washington's airport as a refugee from Somalia, she returned as the first member wearing a he job on the floor of the House Republicans.
