"He is Dan bongino Oh boy you could not have put it better time for this segment on Hillary Clinton I mean totally unintentional that this happened But she's now just what 15 minutes away or so From giving her she's giving the keynote speech at the New York State democratic convention Who's that talking now much on Fox Is that who is that I can't see it You said JJ Jacobs I don't Yeah no it's not JJ Jacobs I don't think Yeah well sadly all too familiar with the New York State democratic politics but she's getting ready to give her a comeback speech and you may be asking come back for what And if you're saying come back to run again no way well yeah yahweh Hillary Clinton has no sense of shame at all Hillary Clinton does not care how many times she loses how if it's in humiliating fashion that she had Donald Trump's spied on for the benefit of her own political campaign flushing the constitution down the toilet She doesn't care about any of this Listen to me please listen Everybody listening This is critical I know sometimes you listen passively This is time for active listening I do it too I'm with you I've been around Hillary Clinton More times than I care to address on the program And I'm telling you this is an evil woman This is a genuinely awful human being The reason Hillary Clinton is doing her comeback speech is because she senses political opportunity with the weakness of Joe Biden in the water Now what a decent human being would do regardless of your politics as you would come in and say hey Joe I'm a Democrat first I'm here for the party What can we do to help you And then if that doesn't work out then you say all right Joe you got to step aside we did our best We're going to come in and rescue you It's only a year into the presidency not hills That's not the way Hillary works folks Hillary is his mercenary is mercenary gets She smells blood in the water like a piranha She goes in for the kill Now do you understand what this comeback speech why she's so panicked about John Durham's recently revealed new information About the DNS data that was exploited Again allegations but serious allegations nonetheless We know the Trump campaign was spied on That's not open for dispute Like I said we have the name of the spy The name of the spy he was working with we have the FBI contract We have the well not the specific contract but we know he was working for the FBI that's not in dispute We know Donald Trump's team was unmasked which is a code word for spying on them We know his team was spied on The new revelations about the web data coming out of Trump Tower are deeply deeply disturbing Now Hillary Clinton decided to respond to this which actually is very unusual for Hillary Fox News story Brooke singman February 16th Hillary Clinton reacts to Durham filing says Trump and Fox News are quote desperately spinning up a fake scandal Folks this is not a small deal Hillary Clinton doesn't typically do this One thing about Hillary Clinton she is on the evil scale She's a 9.6 out of ten And that's only leaving .4 for growth You got to leave the ability to grow on the evil skill right Can't peek out and get hit and asymptote too soon right Hillary Clinton is a genuinely evil person but she is extremely smart And she has a very competent political team around her that knows how to run interference No she doesn't and she lost really How is she managed to stay out of prison After the rose law firm whitewater all of the other nonsense her husband did how did the family manage to escape any serious consequences whatsoever Was impeached Yeah well he wasn't convicted wasn't even close He left office with a 55% approval rating How exactly does he suffer Legally speaking or even politically the answer is they didn't So don't tell me they don't have a good political team they do They know exactly what they're doing So if they have a good political team and it's run by this evil woman it's a terrible human being Then why is she speaking out now when she's managed to avoid any hard scrutiny about this dorm case in the past Now some of you would respond I guess and you you know it's not crazy for you to say And some of you are better thinking well Dan the answer is obvious She wants to stay out of jail Nope I'm telling you with absolute certainty that is wrong This has nothing to do with Hillary Clinton going to jail The likelihood of that I hate to tell you is slim to none and slim left down and I hope I'm wrong There's a chance very small chance but I sincerely doubt that This isn't that show I'm not going to sit here and tell you oh I mean he's going to jail I'm in no time for that There's no evidence that's going to happen There's no evidence that the Department of Justice and Merrick Garland are going to shut this thing down aren't going to shut this down when the going gets tough So if she's not worried about going to jail Dan then make your point what is she worried about She's worried about her political reputation and her legacy Now I can hear a lot of you laughing That's the stupidest thing ever She's worried about her legacy Yes She is Folks when you spend time around these people The obamas the clintons the bushes all of them It's not just the Republican or democratic You start to realize that these people see themselves differently than you and I see us We don't think in legacies you and I think about how to feed our kids and get them into a good school and how to get them a good quality job and where we're going to raise our grandkids We're not sitting here thinking about what the Internet's going to say about us in 25 years I'm telling you when you spend time like I did for a decade of my life and my prior line of work Around these people they see themselves as almost superhuman figures I don't mean it in a superhero way I mean they see themselves as important moments in history and how history defines them matters more than anything.

"App and your smart speaker very happy to have joined the program this afternoon. John Cox. Candidate for governor, State of California, Mr Cox, Welcome to the program serves great to have you and I know that, uh, you are covering the state. You're probably a bit exhausted, but hopefully energize nonetheless. And, uh, I want to give you some time to share your message with us and let us know what's on your mind, sir. No, thank you, John. And I appreciate the opportunity with you again. And yeah, I've been all across the state and I'm still energized and I'm racing through until eight o'clock tomorrow night. I've got interviews lined up back to back to back to back and I was just at the French laundry by the way, uh, which is a famous place. I'm not sure we're going to give me a reservation in the future. Yeah, sure. I might be persona non gratis there, But, you know, listen. The French Laundry is a major elements of this whole recall story because it really told the story is why Gavin Newsom has left the state Get to the point it's at because Mr Newsome is all about getting the lobbyist. He's all about the interest groups and that's where he was having dinner with, and he was hypocritical, of course. But you know the reason John. There's a reason why we don't have affordable housing. There's a reason why we don't fix homelessness or why we don't have enough water or don't have enough electricity. Or why we let wildfires go wild on us or why we have criminals back out on the street or why we had the highest taxes in the country or why our education system Is competing with Mississippi for 49th or something in the country. The reasons for all these things is because we've got political leadership career politician Gavin Newsom. Who just gives everything to the interest groups that they want. And it's just not an actor. In Ewing to be here and get worse because these interest groups like The situation of the status. The status quo works for them, and I want to prime me up on something here. If I may. You know, I've gotten to know you since the time you ran for governor initially a couple years back, and I've had some nice one on one conversations with you. We broke bread together, and I will tell you that I don't think the public honestly has a full appreciation of what you represent quite candidly. You're very bright guy, John. I tell you that very candidly. And honestly, I you You strike me as having virtually a photographic memory. You understand the issues. I don't necessarily see that message being conveyed. I don't see it. Connecting To the voters speak to us from the heart. Tell us what it is that what motivates you personally John Cox to do what you're doing. What is it? You want to see happen? You've had an enormous degree of success. You're wealthy guy You've done great. God bless you for that. What is it that makes you want to engage in this contest? You know we were talking about today, John. And I appreciate you asking that I grew up. Without a father, My, my real father. To hear my mom tell it, he assaulted her. I was the result. She had to have me because the law didn't allow abortions in 1955, and the law protected me. And he left and he did not take responsibility for me. So I think part of me, You know, my wife says it's It's me trying to show my real father that he lost out missing my life, okay? But I don't judge it That way. I kind of look at it the other way. I can't look at this. I take responsibility, John because my real father didn't and that was a negative lesson that I learned. I learned what you missed when you don't take responsibility. So I ran for delegate to the Democratic convention when I was 20 years old and why I grew up a Democrat because my mom was, but because I wanted to take responsibility for fighting the corrupt daily machine in Chicago, Okay? I started a charity. Uh, when I was 30 years old, I was a president of my local School board when I was 27 years old, I mean, I was, you know, Electorate, my church What I for 20 years I was on the board of the US over 20 years. I didn't do all these things because I was supposed to do them or because I Was told by somebody would be good on my resume. I did all these things because I enjoy doing them. Because I enjoyed the idea of taking responsibility and serving people and you know, that's why I've gotten involved in so many political races because I just can't Stomach. The idea that we have so many people like Gavin Newsom and frankly, like these media personalities that jump in these races who are in it to increase their audience or increase their power base. That's not what I'm in this for John. I'm in this because I think it's important to take responsibility and offer ideas and policies that are going to help people. I'd like that to be on my tombstone when I die that I actually Worked to help people. What have what have you seen and learn along the way, and I know that you've had a chance to interact with some of the other challengers to Gavin Newsom. And I sense that there's there's actually some some goodwill between and among the candidates, which is a kind of unique And you've undoubtedly met people along the campaign trail in the public and your interaction with people. What have you learned? What do you know today that you didn't know when you started this in terms of what would make for better public policy in California. Well, First of all, you're right about relationships. I got to know Doug. Obviously. Really Well, quality guy. Quality friend. Yeah. And Kevin Kiley. A nice young Ernest. Uh, probably a future star. If he stays on the straight and narrow. I think it's great. But, you know, I also learned that there's a lot of people in this state that really are crying out for someone who's actually going into be a leader and fix a lot of these problems dot I think people have a cynical view of anybody that runs for political office, which is kinda sad. And, you know, frankly, I tribute it to people like Gavin Newsom, you know and again. I'm not trying to necessarily unnecessarily beat on my opponent here, but let's face it. You know his visits to his visit to the French Laundry was one thing, but It was also soliciting PG and E for contributions to his wife charity. He had to know he had a note that that was wrong. He had to know that people would look at that and say. G. Aren't you misleading us? You're you're at the same time you're doing something about PG and E but doesn't doesn't pass. The straight face test does not pass the straight face, right? Right, And if he was a real leader, if he was a real earnest and honest person he would have to say to himself..

"Everyone was concerned their neighbors now you would, you would have to ask some Muslim People how they felt in America at that time, because they were certainly certainly some ugly things that happened to everything most. And even like six people with brown skin look like they practice another religion. It was it was Simba comprehensively bad responses from people around them. But for the most part, there was this real sense of unity that I believe the poll numbers for for George. W. Bush were sky high at that, as they were for his father when we lovely invaded, uh, embedded down Iraq and so but But there was this sense that we are all on the same team. We're all we're all striving for a certain kind of justice were all and and that may have been. There may have been some real distortions that are at the time where we were all together behind some kind of bad ideas. Like Let's go into half Let's go, Man. Start these forever. Wars always basis because we're gonna be. We're going to bring Switzerland style democracy to to these countries that are clearly not ready for it. And then spell still lot of blood and spend a lot of treasure doing it. Uh, but but I do feel. I mean, I run this experiment in mind also, which is like saying 9 11 had been stopped. It stopped those guys at the airport security. We never had those attacks. We had some minor attacks, obviously, since then, But what if that had never happened with this country be less divided. Than it is now. Politically. The fact that people are so entrenched in their political section would be less divided or or what would it be the same Would it be worse? I can't I can't really make the argument that things would be better or worse. That a lot of what's happened would have happened anyway that we wouldn't I don't I don't know that we can say that Donald Trump is an outgrowth of 9 11. Do you think Is that a case you could make? I think I haven't had not yet counter factual histories tough to do, But I Look, there were America had two impulses after 9 11. One of them was. We are going to chase down and capture the people who did this to us. We are going to protect ourselves and we are going to avenge the dead. The other impulse, which you saw all over your neighborhood and was also all over the country was one of enormous generosity enormous. Um Uh, outpouring of goodwill and caring and you heard, you know, people in the reddest parts of Texas say we're all New Yorkers today. Right? Um, uh, We had a choice of which of those impulses. We double down on and we doubled down on one and not the other, And that was partly because of who was in the government at the time and that Weird sentence of the neo cons at that moment in our history, and I think it's a great tragedy because instead of using this horrible moment and the aftermath to remake the world into a Place that honored our better angels. We through our better angels under the bus in the guise of maybe we can lie about Iraq and have some kind of, uh, win the great game that neither the Russians nor the British one in the 19th century and control everything from the Mediterranean to the Uh, Pacific underneath Russia. Right. I mind boggling the decisions that were made and not made, but Americans had demonstrated good instincts. Wonderful instincts, generous kind. And supportive instincts, and we did nothing to say that that's where we want to be. Well, and it was a sense that we were all attacked that the attack was on America that we are all that we can all identify, as you know, with his with his national identity, with the sense like that red and Blue America we're under attack just about identically and and we were. We were putting together against an enemy. And then we just Uh, fairly quickly got back to fighting against ourselves. Another interesting counterfactual thinking about what if what if another 600 votes had gone to Al Gore in Florida and the 2000 election and Al Gore had been president about that this week had been had been running with with Al Gore have invaded Iraq when Alka What about what was Al Gore's so attack approach to Afghanistan? With, uh, I think you have gone to Afghanistan. I do not think you have gone to Iraq world would be think you're right. I think you're right about that. I mean, he did. There's something clearly their number of a lot of families out there that have to be wondering about that lost their sons and daughters in this in this effort, But I do have this idea of feeling like That the divisions that we have, uh have been exacerbated by other forces in the world, and it includes social media that the deplatforming and the dissemination Out is the hateful of horrible things that you see on social media have really put us into silos. And I think we would have ended up in those silos. Whether or not 9 11 had happened. You mean core because awful lot of lying and and Um uh, You know, sort of fearmongering for a long time from the very top does set a mood. But, yeah, I wonder why I also wonder about the city. You mentioned the security they were under, you know, uh, security everywhere we look the, uh, every time you go into an airport, there's there's cameras. Uh, you can search and you can't have a glass of or you can bring a bottle of water onto an airplane and so on. How much of that would be would still be happening? I don't know. I remember when in the 19 nineties. Six before the Uh, well before the terrorist attack going to the Democratic convention in Chicago Search the new end of the United Center, and I was thinking, you know, it's not going to be long before some numbskull does something horrible and we're all going to be searched. Every time we go into the United States, Not just when President Clinton is about to go out and stay right and sure enough that did that did happen. I think that 9 11 accelerated to Security theater and the security apparatus and the Department of Homeland Security and so on. Eggs all there, but I just I just told me why..

"This will Wednesday talk radio 7 90 K. ABC, The China Phillips Show Broadcasting Live from my Living robe in Palm Springs, California. And it's time to fully reopen the state of California for business. Mr Randy Wings at the Sports desk in Culver City, John We've got a new recall Paul from YouGov, and they say Newsom's going to beat this thing 57 to 43. If you're wondering how accurate this poll is, they have Caitlin at less than 1%, so it's got to be pretty accurate. Well, that's the one and only time I can think of where Caitlin wasn't in the 1%. That family lives in pretty big houses. Larry Elder 24% Meet Kevin 7% Nobody 39% Well, there was also a national YouGov Paul that just came out about the approval ratings of President Joe Biden. They have him under 40% for the first time. Joe Biden's approval rating, according to the Economist. YouGov poll was at 39% with 50% disapproving. Men had only 36% approval. Women. It was 42. Among Hispanics, and this should be an absolute siren call, too Democrats nationally, only 41% of Latinos support of the performance of President Biden. That number is abysmal as we head towards the midterm elections, and it's not just the state of California that's voting this year. They're voting for governor in New Jersey and in the state of Virginia and the state of Virginia is a state that used to be a red state, then became a purple state. Now it's pretty much a solidly blue state. And there is a popular former governor, Terry McAuliffe, who is running to be governor again. They have this weird thing where you can only serve one term and then you're term limited out. But then you have to sit out a term and then you can come back and do it for another term and then sit a term out. Then you can come back. So you can have these nonconsecutive terms. So he's the Democratic nominee, and that race is within the margin of air that races even Steven and there are a lot of Latinos that now live in the state of Virginia. And if Biden and the Dems are tanking with Latinos that's going to hurt him and races like the Virginia governor's race, So there's a lot going on a lot to talk about Who better to talk about it with then the News anchor that we all watch on Fox 11. We also watch his Friday night program. The issue is, which is a show that covers state politics here in the state of California, Alex Michaelson welcome. John Great to be back with you. Likewise, we got a lot of poll numbers coming out, including this economist YouGov poll say that Newsome would likely hold on as governor of California at the same time that Biden is tanking nationally. What do you make of where we stand today? Well from even the last time that we talked as I think was a couple weeks ago that the situation for governor Newsom has improved dramatically. Um it at this point would be very surprising if Governor Newsom was recalled. Whereas a few weeks ago it seemed more Like an even Steven kind of thing. Um, now, not only do we have the poll results, which and we know that polls can be flawed. We've certainly seen that in the past, and I think there are a lot of challenges. Polling a race like this that we've never had before. But we actually have real ballots. Right? Um, you know, Governor Newsom likes to say, you know, Polls don't vote. People vote Well, millions of people have voted and from the early data that we're seeing The polls are breaking significantly for Democrats. Now we know that Republicans like to vote in person better and are, you know, maybe not sending back their ballots as much but the road for Republicans to win this in a state that has twice as many Democrats as Republicans. Is really low Democratic turnout and really, really high Republican turnout, and the trend so far, do not seem to be showing that you know Republicans right now that are hoping to recall governor in Houston have a math problem. So far we've seen Elizabeth Warren, the senator from Massachusetts come to California to campaign on behalf of Newsome. We've certainly seen Amy Klobuchar, the senator from Minnesota. We had scheduled appearances from the vice president that were canceled because of the collapse of the government in Afghanistan and everything associated with that We now know that she's here today. The president will be here next week. Just just wrapped up speaking. I just watched her President Obama is going to cut an ad for for Newsome. But typically speaking, if you have a big election with a lot at stake, it's the sitting president that you want here. Cutting the ads for you. You want their face their likeness their image out there. Telling the voters to come out and support you. And it seems like Obama former President Obama is more useful in that regard than Joe Biden, including maybe some of these other people. Is the fact that Biden's numbers are tanking right now, Do you think that plays a role in the willingness for for the Newsome camp to reach out to people like former President Obama, as opposed to the current president? No doubt. I think Barack Obama does not have any of the baggage that Joe Biden has right now. I mean, both of them still pretty pretty popular among the Democratic base in California. Remember who you're talking about. Here are not really moderates or independents if Democrats get out their base just because of the numbers because of the math. They went easily. So Dem Joe Biden, who won in California by 30 points is still relatively popular here, but I think there's an interesting thing that's going to happen most likely on Monday, when President Biden comes here. I'm hearing that he's not only going to be campaigning, but also going to do some Visiting a fire damage to make it seem like it's more of an official trip but really is coming out here to campaign for Gavin Newsom. That's at a point after 22 million people had ballots mail for them. Most people in this state would have voted by that point. I mean, like 70 80% of people would have already voted so him coming out here on the day before the election really doesn't do that much to help Gavin Newsom. The reverse could be true of what usually happens. Usually the president comes out to help the candidate in this situation. The candidate could end up helping the president, whereas Joe Biden gets to claim some sort of credit. For what's probably going to be a significant win for Governor Newsom next week, and then it looks like he came in at the end and was helpful in it when in reality, he really wasn't that helpful. But Joe Biden, who desperately need to win right now, politically may try to, you know, read the tea leaves of what's happening in California and try to claim some of that credit for himself. Yesterday We spoke with Robert K. Haley, who's the pollster over at the Trafalgar group, and he's He's saying that Newsom's ahead by 8 to 10 points right now in the in the campaign. And he said, there are two issues that are keeping Democrats who aren't very fond of him in the tent. One of them is that they are freaking out over Covid at levels that the people who are voting against him are not And the other thing that has them worried is that if a Republican gets in, and they think they're 300 bucks a week could be going away. And that's something that's still top of mind, however, did say that the anger towards deuce um is widespread and cuts across just about every group you can imagine. And he believes that even if Newsome survives this election, he's vulnerable next time around. Maybe not from a Republican. Maybe two is left from another Democrat, because the voters are that angry with him right now. It was remarkable. I went to the Newsome Rally with Elizabeth Warren in Culver City this weekend. Uh, and talk to different voters there. Most of them were very frustrated. With the recall process itself, they felt like the recall itself was being abused. Most of them were very concerned about the concept of Larry Elder becoming governor, but none of them really defended Governor Newsom with that much enthusiasm. It was sort of phrases like he did the best he could, or he's got a lot of challenges. It reminded me kind of when I was in Philadelphia in 2016 at the Democratic Convention, and Hillary Clinton was the nominee who gave a very so so speech..

Now and it it went on and on and and again, Ryan making great points that this is the kind of the counterpoint to kneeling for the anthem and kneeling at the site of the American flag. Democrats don't wave the American flag unless it's a precursor to setting it on fire, setting on fire and burning, setting themselves on fire on occasion. We know on funny days like at the Democratic Convention where Hillary Clinton became the nominee, and one of the guys was burning a flag and dancing on the burning flag, and it set him on fire. And that was a funny moment. I gotta say that was the one where the Democrats forgot to bring any American flags to the convention hall. Remember that That was great stuff. And then they had to go down to the Philadelphia City Paul and steal bunting from the building down there, Bring it to Hey, I can't believe we got a Palestinian flag in a Mexican flag, but I can't believe we forgot to bring American flags at coastal Carolina up this Saturday the football game was going on and young fans in the crowd. At Auburn University, the fans in the crowd now it sounds like it's the same thing because they're chanting.

"Talked about how civil rights activists in the sixties help. Play the foundation for Obama's presidency in order to become president of the United States. You have to be nominated by one of the two political parties. So, the Chrome thing for me was in reflecting back was the 1964 Challenger of the Mississippi, Freedom Democratic party to the National Democratic Convention because that was where the stage was set that allowed this to happen. Because without opening up the national political situation in the country, this wasn't going to happen. And you know, we we could have gotten the right to vote without the opening. Up of the national political party structure. Found the party structure wasn't opened up by getting the right to vote. The party structure was opened up by directly challenging in Mississippi. To be the right of Mississippi to send on an all white delegation, to the 1964 National Democratic Convention and it was Fannie Lou Hamer, and all the people in that delegation that really forced the national Democratic party to open up, you know. And she was, it was that I mean Barack Obama could not be running for president. If he had not been able to secure a party to run for and off the Democratic Party from the time of after the Civil War, right? Until 1964 there were no black delegates to the Democratic party from the south and it was that action more than anything else, which opened up the National Party, struction allowed eventually. What is happening today to happen off? Can you take us from 1964? The voting, the battle for voting and civil rights to what you see happening today to the progress and also off warnings that you have for us or suggestions recommendations. So my main idea and I try to look at this event in through the lens of the evolution in this country off of the idea of who, in our country are the people who have constitutional rights, and constitutional responsibilities and off the evolution of the expansion of that. And I think the country kind of Moves In Cycles which take roughly around three-quarters of a century. So I look at the time from 1787 until the Civil War as a time in which we had yes, constitutional people mostly white men off but then we had constitutional property, African Americans who were slaves and then we had this a horrendous War, six hundred thousand people Killed during the war and we come out of the war. And Lincoln Obama is rightly looking at Thursday, we get rid of the idea of constitutional property but African Americans. Don't quite become full-fledged, citizens and wage. When we, when Mississippi people all the time was saying, well, we want to be first class citizens and so the implication being that they were second or even third jobs I said, as soon as so the civil rights movement and and here, I have to, I think we have to give credibility to the sit-in movement to the young black students at Birth. Historically black colleges who are really dismantle Jim Crow in the area of its public accommodations with the sit-in movement off. They actually dismantle that aspect of Jim Crow. So then there was this dismantling of it around the right to vote, and what I was talking about earlier, also around the National Party structure, but you know, when I was sitting in the federal district court house I was down in the witness stand and if you remember this was in the spring of 1963 and at that time, President Kennedy was still alive. Bobby Kennedy was Attorney General Marshall is the Assistant Attorney General for civil rights, and John Doe was my lawyer, he was the chief litigator in the field and the judge judge claimed. That was a federal district judge. We had taken hundreds of sharecroppers in Greenwood to register and then subsequently the snake field secretaries. Had been arrested and Burke a dog. It says we moved to the federal court so just Clayton looks over and he wants to know why are we taking illiterates down to register to vote off? So in a nutshell I answer is well the country can have its cake and eat it too. It can have denied a whole people access to literacy through its political arrangements and then turn around and say well you can't access politics because your illiterate and we won that struggle. We wanted in the courts and it was judged. Wisdom that decision in the case of us. V Louisiana, where he said well we can't allow the state of Louisiana to have authority over the actual qualifications of voting that has to be moved to the federal system. So the nineteen sixty five Voting Rights Act gave the phone number Will government the responsibility of saying who could qualify for the right to vote. So but we didn't win the issue of literacy and I think that's the issue, the band in this evolution of, who are the Constitutional people. The children of our country. Do not have a constitutional right to a public school education and you have to look at the Rodriguez case, 1971 Mexican Americans who sued in Texas for Equity. Their case went all the way up to Josephine Court. And the Supreme Court said you don't you can't come here into the federal system for Relief because there's no substance of federal wrong to a constitutional. Right to an education, public school education in this country. I think really that in our country and this is going to be a huge challenge for the wage. Last Administration in our country. I think we run, sharecrop, education. That is an education that you can trace. When the judge asked that question, because in the Delta of Mississippi sharecroppers were signed to do a certain kind of work. And so the idea was you only need a certain kind of education so often, if we carry that forward into the information age, then we will have service in our cities. Just like we had service in the delta, Mississippi in the Industrial Age. And this is the huge challenge facing our country. I think, what we need is a movement for our constitutional rights. We need a constitutional amendment something, which simply says every child in the country, is a child of the country, and is entitled to a quality public school education. That's civil rights leader. Bob, Moses former field secretary for years. Nick, the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee and founder of the algebra project.

"Now as to say, Well, you know you, Hampshire, and I was just a little too white for me, and we're gonna strip them of their early primary status because there's just not enough colors in the crayon box out in these areas. This is insanity. This is a great case that mean this is a great example. Of who these people are. I mean enough already. I mean, seriously enough already enough of the racial bullcrap. It is bull craft. It is a hoax. It is stupid. I mean, I was looking again as I was going through some of my show material in 2004 after Barack Obama had spoken for the first time in the National Democratic Convention. He had authored a book promises of his father. Some crap like that, and he went on to say there's no black America. There's no White America. There is on Lee, the United States of America. Isn't it funny? How from 2004 when he pulled the wool over your eyes because he could pull the wool over my eyes, and I know many in this audience. He didn't pull the wool over your eyes, either, but he didn't pull the wool out of over many people's eyes. And all of a sudden now that's not the case Now. All of a sudden, my God, you're too white. Oh, my God. You're too You're too white, Your pasty white hell. You look like fricking white out. Democrats. They're leftist ideology is a religion. This is why today on the national Day of prayer President Biden. Whom it's God doesn't mention anything about God, and he's a Catholic. You don't think he should mention something about God. Jesus Christ In some capacity, Donald Trump did Hell, Even George W. Bush tit but not Joe Biden. No way no. How he takes this opportunity to make sure you realize that there is just racial injustices and climate change is the biggest threat facing mankind. This is sick, but these are sick people. These are sick people. I mean, you can't even ask Joe Biden. Anything impromptu. You just can't. I mean, you couldn't trump, remember? Remember what Donald Trump? You could see him. Say, Mr President, Mr President before he was going to, you know, Marine one or wherever he was going. You know he would stop and he would, you know, talk to the press. And he was off the hook man off the cuff. I mean, they'd ask him something. He's smart. He knew what to say. He had the answers, not Joe Biden. You will not catch Joe Biden away from his handlers. In fact, Jen Psaki admitted. To the press that Joe Biden is told to avoid answering and prompt to questions from reporters. Does that not scare the crap out of you? I mean, seriously, does that not scare you? In fact, I think Jen Psaki Raggedy Ann herself literally has stepped into too deep of a diabolical circle because there's already people talking. There's already reports. She's even Mama whispering this in people's ears. That she's thinking of stepping down as soon as the end of the year or early next year's press secretary. I mean, my God. I mean, the circle back around queen. I mean, she's she's gonna be gone. So you know why? Because I'll tell you why. Because they are out of their minds. And this woman has to go through constantly lie. I mean, look, let's be honest Press secretaries typically lie or they skirt the truth. They deflect. I mean, they all do all of them Every single one. Okay, Let's be honest, They kind of, you know, paint things with a broad brush. You know what? I know it. So that their narrative fits. You know, whatever they're trying to sell the American public. Jen Psaki. Everything's alive. You know it and I know it. So friends on this national day of prayer. President Biden. Besides, God's not important on this day. What's important is racial justice. What's important is climate change. And what's important is the Democrats debating off stripping Iowa and New Hampshire of their early primary status? Because they're too white. Tell me once again. That there is not a planned Civil war. In fact, race war at our steps. Am I wrong? Because People are getting angry Caucasian people are getting upset. Do you think that white people are going to be abused? No color in the cramped box should be is abused As what's going on? I don't care if you're white, black brown purple with polka dots. There comes a time. When you cannot take the abuse anymore. There comes a time when you finally get fed up and say Screw you. You will not take away my civil liberties. You will not take away my freedoms. You will not call me a racist. You will stop with this white privilege. Nonsense because you are not My boss. That's what needs to be said. Oh, and and and the Democrats think that there your employers that.

But of course I'm just going to start by asking you what strikes you Well, everyone since 1985. And what struck me today was that the expectations for this were so fraud. People were not expecting a great show, but instead, they absolutely got one. Joe Biden met his moment. He is not a stem, winding speaker. Like the last two presidents. He doesn't have the benefit of those talents. But he gave a very well written speech from the heart spoke of how the problems of the nation are written on his soul, and his commitment to try to solve them is as well.

I mean between kind of recognizing that sort of the tragedies and the sadness of the moment and the violence that was just witnessed and also offering a message of hope and optimism. And being honest about the challenges ahead. How well do you think that Joe Biden balanced all those competing emotions it needed to be somber, but it did not need to be grim. And although there were moments, especially in remembering the 400,000 that can only be called grim. The overall spirit of this ceremony was not grim. It was hopeful it was forward looking. It was crisp In many respects. I thought that the oath themselves with the Supreme Court justices where moving in their simplicity their brevity. And their sincerity.

Trump's legacy we won't even get into the fact that most of his economic and financial decisions that his tax cuts. They're going by the wayside too sweet but will this become the president's legacy plenty of blame to go around here when you look at the unrest when you consider all of the anguish and the angst the upheaval that we as a nation have been through over the past four years. Democrats are responsible yes. Republicans are responsible as is the mainstream media for their rather lopsided reporting that only served to fan the flames of dissent across this nation. It was incredible watching some of the comments coming out of not only the talking heads but when you consider the democrats response or should i say lack of response. During summer of social unrest. I should say a spring and summer of social unrest. This as protesters talking black lives matter. I'm talking in tepa. Protesters across the country. Use that as a cudgel as an opportunity. yes they were opportunistic.

How long did it take the democrats to decry that violence. In the name of social justice it was long after the democratic convention. The joe biden finally did just that. And why did he do it well because the polls told him that that message just wasn't selling any more so the message midst for quite some time.

Jeremy strong from succession and one of the stars of watchman job doing the team. They're playing two of the defendants. You also have frankly, Angela's The judge and Michael Keaton's in there. Sasha Baron Cohen's in there. Doing dramatic bit, and it just sounds like again. Aaron Sorkin is knows his way around a courtroom. If you remember his very first big hit was a few good men. So if you like Aaron Sorkin style you've got two choices was like a double whammy of Aaron Sorkin this week. Now? Yeah, I once interviewed Jerry Rubin, a za journalism student at Penn State, and he was in the Rolfing, which is when you beat yourself up physical. Just one strange cat, man. I got to say yes. I have a feeling that would be a fun one to watch. Yeah. Will be S O on Sunday. You got something? The
Biden shatters record with $364.5 million haul in August
"Eye catching news is the fundraising numbers that Biden is reporting for the month of August according to the new. York Times his campaign received more than hundred sixty, million dollars for the entire month, which would blow pass Barack Obama's previous record set in two thousand eight. The months numbers were helped by two huge events, the Democratic convention, which is Essentially A. Four, night commercial or telethon, and then announcing Comma Harris has his choice for VP, which apparently led to the campaign racing forty, eight million dollars in the forty eight hours after the announcement not to be outdone trump in the RNC said they raised about seventy, six, million dollars during last week's convention whereas Biden raised seventy million during the Democrat convention. But this huge month from Joe definitely cut into trump's fundraising
Biden tops Trump in convention speech TV ratings

Then President Trump accepting the Backing of Republicans about 21.7 million Americans watched Biden's speech last week, Nielsen Media Research, says an estimated 19.9 million watch president from accept his party's nomination.

Trump officially becomes Republican nominee after delegates' roll call
"The first day of the Republican National Convention was called to order at 9 A.m. this morning. And within just a few hours, there was already a considerable contrast to the Democratic convention that wrapped up last Thursday night. The president was officially renominated in a live roll call last week. The roll call was ah, virtual tapestry of short videos, highlighting landmarks and landscapes, culminating with Biden's nomination shortly before his speech Thursday night. Virtual roll call got high marks. But the RNC wanted to retain a hint of business as usual in the midst of the pandemic and opted to do it in person. Also in contrast to the Democratsconvention Trump addressed the convention at length in person in Charlotte in the afternoon outside of Primetime. Now Biden popped up here and there but really wasn't much of a presence until later in the week. You can bank on the fact that President Trump is going to continue to have a very heavy presence at the convention. There really isn't anyone else in the Republican Party who can match the president's own star power,
Highlights from the Democratic National Convention
"Virtual National Party convention is in the books, but it wasn't just the lack of balloon drops or cheering delegates that made this convention so different from the Democratic Convention in Philadelphia four years ago. In 2016, the wounds of a contentious primary were still on display this week. On the final night of the convention, The major 2020 Democratic primary candidates were featured in a primetime zoom like talk show format. Are, they gushed over Biden's decency and sense of purpose. I think the day I saw Joe, the clearest was on the one year anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombing. Everyone, of course, was enormously honored to have the vice president here. But at some point in that speech, he shifted to the parents who had lost a child. To the man who had lost life. To someone who had experience loss. Very personally, and he spoke to each of the families. From the heart. The week also featured a number of high profile Republicans who vouched for Biden's competency and centrism. Their job was to assure the white suburban moderates who have soured on Trump. That Biden is a safe choice. I'm sure they're Republicans and independents who couldn't imagine crossing over to support a Democrat. They fear Joe may turn sharp left and leave them behind. I don't believe that because I know the measure of the man. It's reasonable, faithful, respectful. And you know, no one pushes Joe around the through line in each night, and each speech was the threat our current president poses to our democracy. The urgency of this moment this administration has shown it will tear our democracy down. If that's what it takes for them to win, so we're at an inflection point constant chaos. Leaves us adrift. The incompetence. Makes us feel afraid. Callousness makes us feel alone and if we want a chance to pursue any of these goals, any of these most basic requirements for a functioning society. We have to vote for Joe Biden in numbers that cannot be ignored. Because right now, folks who know they cannot win fair and square at the ballot box are doing everything they can to stop us from voting.
Trump, Pence campaign during democratic convention
"Trump and vice president Pence did something unconventional, not typically done While the opposing party's convention is underway. They campaign we've secured our borders brought back our manufacturing jobs rebuild our military will be back. The president also responded publicly and on Twitter to speeches made by Michelle and Barack Obama.
Were in a SNAP boom
"What we have here is an economic recovery on top of a depression talk about that a little bit. You basically have to separate. Right now and actually my colleague Heather Long had written about this last week. So I WANNA give her credit for that. But basically you have these two different economies you have the economy of higher income, white collar, more likely to be college educated people who can still work from home. As I can who can get delivery for most needs and desires, and basically are in recovery right now in fact, if you look at the jobs data for people in the highest income core tile. All of the jobs that were lost in the spring have been recovered, and then you look at people in the other economy people who are more likely to be working class they. They have jobs where they have to physically show in person at retail stores at gyms at restaurants, hotels, etc, and they are still deeply deeply struggling there. Those jobs are still missing essentially and you have this divergence in other kinds of indicators to write in in terms of home sales. For example, existing home sales are way up as we've learned meanwhile, mortgage delinquencies. Are are way up as well. So you have these very divergent experiences depending on who you are. And also, of course, reflected in the stock market is well. To the market in a minute because that is obviously related bit city by I want to turn to the political part of this actually and I wanted to talk to you about. The polling that's out there the shows Vice President Biden leading president trump in most areas, but when the question turns to handling of and trust to handle the economy. President trump comes out ahead discuss. No I remember seeing all this six months ago and I thought, yeah. That kind of makes sense the wage growth in strong the the stock market's up I can see how people would see that trump has marketed himself as a businessman. Biden's marketed himself very differently. What's was puzzling now is, how's that possible this moment when we are in what could be considered a depression and obviously the markets backup and that's made a difference, but there is just a certain. Group of voters fixed trump voters and fixed by Biden voters who aren't going to change their views trump famously said he in the middle of Fifth Avenue to somebody and not losing voters, and that seems to be what is happening now trump. Has as a has somehow managed to take what he would criticizing before this a lot of the same dynamics in market. The big fat ugly bubble in trade in dealing with China and somehow positioned himself as the good guy I in in all of that, and that is a political skills so that that's what he's pulled off. Catherine I'M GONNA assume you watched parts of or probably most of the Democratic convention right. What was your sense of how they addressed vice president, Biden economic plans to me it sounded like jobs going to create jobs. Did you divine more out of it than that? I think there. This was not so much about specific policies right? There were isolated. Discussions of policies. For example, you know gun control or immigration in terms of actual economic policy I didn't think there was a lot tangibly that came out of. The convention events themselves that's not to say that Biden doesn't have stuff on his website to be clear but you know that was that really wasn't the focus of the last few nights. It was more about character. Restoring decency to the White House that sort of thing there was discussion about the hardship that Americans were facing but you didn't hear so much of a plan discussed about how we restore those jobs. And and you know put people but my in people's pockets again. So. Deep your take on the convention economic policy was. Yeah, the the the choice that was being presented in this case. TWAS, do you want the lazy fairer approach of? Letting people not wear their masks in letting people go about their business and letting the states, figure it out on their own or do you want the centralized government approach where you pour more resources into controlling the virus and supporting people on unemployment? That all of the things that we've talked about in clean energy and infrastructure in childcare and manufacturing. That is what the Democrats are pitching and they're they're pitching it hard. They're saying that government will step in under our our approach and take a more active role That is a hard thing. To, argue against in this environment when so many people are struggling to just have the basic normalcy of lives but trump will be trying to do that all of next week painting darker picture that you that that will calmest if we go down that road. Catherine Super Super, quick on the markets two more records day on varies indices It's all essentially the Fed and plowing money in there and keep an interest rates so low that stocks relatively attractive, right? I think that's a large part of it. You also, of course, have optimism about a potential vaccine and animal spirits for lack of a better term. But yeah I mean I I I think it's the markets are looking ahead and they're also aware that monetary policy is going to be loose for a very, very long time which is going to effectively. Inflate the value of future products so. Companies can borrow more cheaply.

Final takeaways from the 2020 Democratic National Convention
"First first virtual virtual National National Party Party convention convention is is in in the the books, books, but but it it wasn't wasn't just just the the lack lack of of balloon balloon drops drops or or cheering delegates that made this convention so different from the Democratic Convention in Philadelphia four years ago.

We have to vote for Joe Biden in numbers that cannot be ignored because right now Folks who know they cannot win fair and square at the ballot box are doing everything they can to stop us from voting. There's a lot to get into. So let's dive right in. I am joined by a virtual panel of reporters who've been following the convention all week. Maya King is a reporter covering race, ethnicity and campaigns for politico. Alex Ready is politics reporter from McClatchy. And instead, Herndon is national politics reporter for The New York Times. Instead has actually been in the place where we were all supposed to be this week in Milwaukee instead. Could we start with you and tell us what it is like to actually be in a convention city? Where there's no convention. You know, I think that the, um the levels of the absence here had been even greater than folks would imagine. There are times when you would not even know that the convention was ostensibly being hosted a block away. There are very few protesters. There is very few sign age, the kind of hallmarks of convention that we're used to seeing. Are just totally absent. And so the few reporters who are here you know, have have have watched it virtually just like everyone else. There has been some some programming this week. They had a drive in to see that as a kind of projected in Delaware at the drive in of fireworks at the Milwaukee Zoo, That was about the only in person thing. And even that was kind of hard to see him for press to get into Just a cz. One anecdote or how difficult it wass. You know, I tried. We took a five minute convincing to get this bar to play Joe Biden speeds that the few reporters were at turning a. The kind of kind of exploitation from them was well, they took it from a city way. So so so why play it?
Trump says Democrats' convention was 'gloomiest' in history

What we'll remember from the 2020 Biden convention
"For more on Biden's speech. In this week's historic virtual Democratic convention we're joined by two guests in Massachusetts Dr. Cornel. West with a professor of the practice of public. Philosophy at Harvard. University author of numerous books including race matters and black prophetic fire. His new podcast called the tight rope in two thousand Seventeen Cornell Westwood's in Charlottesville with. Neo Nazis stormed the campus he and other clergy members were protected by anti-fascists from the mob white supremacists and in Baltimore Maryland were joined by Ben Jealous Precedent people for the American way former president of the ACP. He ran for governor of Maryland in two thousand eighteen we welcome you both to democracy. Now, Ben Jealous congratulations on your new position as head of people for the American way. Why don't you start off by responding to this week's Democratic convention your thoughts on. Where the two now nominees the. President not presidential nominee, Joe Biden and historic a selection of Kamla Harris, to be his running away their positions and how. They represent what you do or not. Theme this convention was really one of unity. This was a time. When we have to come together to defeat a president, who is the most evil the most corrupt than any of us have seen and That says a lot. It also was the time we saw two two nominees who we as progressives. No, we can work with. Kamla. Sister who introduced her Maya. The former head of the ACLU of northern. California. Kamo ran for D. A. and much more conservative time and yet did so as outspoken opponent of the death penalty who then held her ground early in term when she was tested, would an officer was killed an the entire liberal establishment northern California came down on her and she said the death penalty is wrong period. Tremendous Kirch and Joe Biden who Bernie himself said is poised to be the most progressive presidents since FDR. And so while it's not Bernie. And while maybe it's not somebody else someone hope for what we do know is that these are people that we can work with. These are people who their best represent our best values literally the daughter of civil rights activists, the sister of a civil rights lawyer who are self told me fifteen years ago she became a prosecutor because it wasn't enough to just fight the power. We also had to hold the POW. And I've seen her act courageously. So I'm I'm very hopeful and I have no doubt that we can work with. Joe. Like addy who spoke so beautifully, and that was the true highlight for me. I believe that we must move towards Medicare for all I also believe that Joe Biden will take us further in that direction certainly. Donald. Trump and frankly further than most presidents that that that we have an opportunity here to move things in the right direction again and as organizers. That's the most important thing to get out of any presidential election is a president that you can move in the right direction. and Professor Cornel West your reaction to this week in the positions of the Democratic candidates for president if I president. Day My points of reference really are the freedom dreams that we just heard from zoom commodores and genius Lionel Richie. Of Ella, Baker, who was invoked by brother Biden and the first sentence. Of his speech the Alabama who was a revolutionary L. A. Baker who was working on the mass party organizing committee would offer annoy the Great William Kuntsler for actually working for third parties because he thought, she thought that the two party system was so decrepit and then also to Curtis Mayfield that they've been playing over and over again, the move on up but you got to move on from poverty. And in order to do it, you gotTa Talk About Poverty. If you go move on from Wall Street greed and Wall Street crimes, you gotTa talk about, Wall Street Green Wall, street cry go move on up from the Pentagon militarism around the world you gotTa talk about it. Those are the taboo issues that we don't get serious wrestling with. So when you really. Talk about the soul of America, the battle for the soul of America much of that so has been evacuated by the Pentagon, cry greed and the Wall Street greed and the inability of the police and other institutions at treat black people and Brown people, Indigenous People as human beings so I agree with brother. Ben. In terms of being part of an anti fascist coalition. That I think we're forced to vote for buying, but we're not going to lie about buying. WE'RE NOT GONNA lie about Harris. We're going to tell the truth about their. Captivity and their. Refusal to hit Pentagon money spending and militarism around the world at Wall Street, green and. Speak substantively to issues of poverty you can have massive protests all around the country, the largest in the history of country, you can have brother Barbara. Assisted theorist talking about poverty, and then when you get to the convention, you get this spectacle that has nothing to do with wrestling with poverty. I think court breath corey was the only one that even talk about it for the most part none of the major figures did thank God that Bernie thank God LLC. Got A little ninety minutes as opposed Republic Ninety Second Major. Sometimes. Ninety seconds, Ninety seconds so that I you know I'm I'm with Ben in terms of we got the vote for Biden but never ever lying about him and not coming to terms with the fact that. This moment with the decline and fall of the American empire it looks as if the system is unable to generate enough energy to seriously reform itself, it remains sanitized superficial. We getting Lawrence Wealth bubbles rather than prince the revolution I want to go to the Princess Revolution Concert I walk fundamental change.

DNC showed how to stage a virtual event
"To find out how you can save on your first box. Like you probably did I watch much of the Democratic convention. This week might computer and phone as well and I saw the future of virtual events. So many upcoming trade shows of canceled or physical presence due to the pandemic like the. Two big ones coming up next year two big ones that I regularly attend and they're trying to figure out how to make your digital presence interesting and as always I have some ideas. To it like the DNC did but allow for human interaction. I'm Jefferson Graham you're listening to talking tech. So what did the DNC do so well, forget politics for a moment. Let's just talk showmanship they got rid of the hot air and they just cut to the chase to show us the good stuff those speeches that would go on for half an hour or so cut down to five minutes or less inbetween. We saw highly produced a visually interesting packages that were way more interesting than seeing people and funny hats. They use the medium to bring an average folks like the people who did the roll calls in all the states to people speaking out about the politics and why issues were important to them. It humanized the show. Now. Some of the speeches did fall flat without an audience but the bottom line is that the DNC showed that the days of life physical convention coverage is probably over it's still an infomercial which is not good but this is the format to stick with one we get out of the pandemic. So, now, what are the trade shows due to keep our interest? As I've said before they need a highly produce show as well with. US on the show Intel and less on the hot air. They can run the industry keynotes panels during the day if they must. But you know if I was running the operation, I would have a highly curated produced highlight show each evening of new products to show you. figure out a way to get average folks in there to chime in with their questions perhaps breakout rooms something that's never been afforded to them before I mean wouldn't you love audience with Tim Cook after an apple launch to pose questions about the new iphone? Well, it's unlikely that would happen. But wouldn't it be nice For. The world's biggest electronic show in NAM devoted new musical instruments. I could see a Netflix like Benue of thumbnails showcasing new products. You could click on new ones daily to see what's out there. This
