California that laws the legislature which is a supermajority with a super democratic super majority and a democratic liberal governor. You put those two together you have. You have a disaster a recipe for disaster. So here is optically good one. There is a bill that was introduced by two democrats of course and it would require retailers to offer their toys and childcare products in a gender neutral format which means no boys section no girls section it all has to be unified and everything for sale is for children not for boys and girls and you can't eat put up a sign that even indicate whether a product is intended for a boy or a girl and well that is i can see we're taking now gender neutrality to a kind of a level that is beyond a not reality but certainly beyond that part which makes sense and it's i i think the issue here and i am totally in favor of lgbtq rights. There's no question about it. And for the most part i'm in favor of gender neutrality. For example restroom single use restrooms. I have no problem saying gender-neutral. I truly don't but when it comes to retail spaces not even recognizing that there is a gender that their gender differences now The good news. Is you still in stores. They are still allowed to put men sections boys sections Girls women otherwise. You've gone to the retail stores target. Uganda Major retailers Nordstrom's we're talking about department stores and you have the signs say boy section men's etcetera and we haven't reached the point yet where you have signs they just have question marks and then eros that we haven't done yet but when it comes to toys sections we have those days where you differentiate between boys and girls are gone and accepting the fact that They're really that kids yet. Have not yet determined what their sexuality is. And i happen to be a believer That number one there is gender. Dismore fiesta where there are there are plenty of people who born male and identify as females and then later on it Transitional surgery and these people are very unlucky to do that to be born in the wrong body.

"American people is by sharing away on facebook. Now the the Democrats need to put on their heart and matched them on the front lines and go to war. Did this social media is the new political battlefield where ideas win and loose and I think something that you guys touched on earlier that I didn't get a chance to interject on is that trump's campaign strategy seems to be one of projection and it's the same thing that he did in two thousand sixteen. He accused Hillary of being guilty of everything he himself was guilty of so she ran a crooked charity foundation. We all know that the trump of foundation was charged with committing actual crimes in. They were dissolved by the state of New York. She accused Hillary of being crooked and Donald Trump is has a long sordid history of ripping everybody off and gaming the system to his own benefit filing bankruptcy etc. And now he's accusing Joe Biden of being beholden to China. When I think any economists will tell you that trump is the best thing that ever happened to. China and China's economic prowess is growing more and more every single day. So it's important that we puncture a hole in trump's hit and it's important that the people that the left realizes that politics is zero sum game so we don't support Joe Biden thing that's going to happen. Twenty sixteen is going to happen again. So Donald Trump has a very strong base. And they're all going to go out and vote they might. They might only thirty percent of the population but all thirty percent of them are going to vote now. Biden might have seventy percent support but if people are not excited about his candidacy and aren't willing to spend six hours waiting in line to vote for him. Then we're going to have the same problem that we did in two thousand sixteen absolutely So either of you guys can jump in on this. I bohm curious when you You are you mentioned the trump campaign when and. I'm sure you study what they're doing carefully. What are they doing? Well what concerns you? Where do you think they're overrated by the media? Just kind of how do you assess the opponent here? Sure now? I think the main advantage that they have is just how seriously they take social media so trump's campaign manager comes from the Digital Field Biden doesn't have a campaign manager that comes from digital they just have a digital strategist like traditional democratic campaigns. Do so I think the first part of the equation is just the fact that trump in the Republican party realize the value of social media and that really puts US behind just in terms of their orientation they just. They're just native right. They just understand the playing field. Well these networks are made not for paid reach so the Biden Campaign and Democrats in the Bloomberg campaign. They think that you can just pay facebook and win the battle when these networks are designed really for organic reach. And that's something that the trump campaign and Brad Pascal. His campaign manager do a pretty good job at nowhere near as good a job as we do and to be honest. I think their social media strategy is way overrated Brad. Pascal is no social media. Genius he never started an organic facebook. Page built from scratch All he did was kind of ride..

And some I'm Justice Department case involving campaign daughter or something whatever I ruined all right okay and usually it's a little murky you know but we would make a big deal about it and I just WanNa read. This is the lead of the New York Times Story. Just to kind of adjectives in. It's really it's actually a very simply written Lee. I'm GonNa read this year adjectives. You read mother okay. Four prosecutors abruptly withdrew on Tuesday from the case of president in trump's longtime friend Roger J stone junior after senior Justice Department officials intervened to recommend a more lenient sentence for crimes he committed in a bid did protect the president mission right. I mean here here you have. It's mind boggling. Right I mean here you have a president intervened in a the case not to help political ally but a case that goes directly to his own personal conduct. And the sense I have. We're here up here in Manchester following this election but emailing and you know and texting sources back in in Washington. I think this is really rocked people at the Justice Department. I think this is a pretty serious. It seems like a core. All these concerns that we've had about you know what trump would do to the rule of law. This is what people were worried about. This exact thing was that people and we've seen we've seen this sort of trend line. We've seen the vector going unions this direction with trump trying to get jeff sessions fired. Saying where's my Roy. Cohn he wants Jensen Department to be his own mob law firm and just protecting him. You know he's been talking about this and then they bring bill. Barring billboards is investigating things involving the Russian scandal trying to in some ways it seems to prove from the crazy conspiracy theories even after the I G report and others have not delivered that those goods to the to the president. And you know I thought I I kinda thought we'd see more of this just happening in the shadows the shadows that you guys live in that we notice but this is as public and as is an obvious and I think the brazenness of this you know is what shocked. The brazenness is why trump gets away with it right because it is so brazen it is so out there. That bill bar to everyone said Oh. He's going to be the adult in the room when it comes to the Justice Department. He's institutionalists channelised. Yeah we said that this show too now no need to worry it does your fear Cherifi. Look I don't disagree with anything either. The review has said on this. Don't add up but here but let's put a little perspective on it. You know on February twenty. I believe judge amy me. Berman Jackson is going to deliver a sentence for Roger Stone. My strong hunch. Is that if anything. She's is now more inclined to deliver a tougher sentence than she would. Otherwise have been because of this but she huge she was never going to get a pardon she was never well. That's yes that will give driving. After the election. There is a high likelihood there will be pardons for a number of people but I mean you know my guests. Look she was never gonNa give him seven and a half to nine years. That was although it's per the guidelines lines that's largely because of the witness tampering charge and the wist witness tampering charge was the squishy est of them all it all rested on emails and texts that stone sent to credit call after he learned what credit co was quoted in San as saying in that aforementioned book Russian Roulette and he said prepare to die Aycock sucker and prepared and seem to threaten the welfare of Bianca. Credit goes service dog who by the way has been a guest has been the guest on credit cards and shoes what was in the grand. Jury I think straight from the grand grand jury to skulduggery like number of guests have been but you know look credit costs said on the witness stand and amplified that in a letter to the judge Jackson. He never took those comments seriously. He never thought Roger Stone which might have to might have brought. You might green jewelry. I mean no. He wasn't asked. He said in his letter if I had been asked by stones stupid lawyers on Cross examination Asian or didn't have the wits to ask you know. Did you ever feel threatened in any way he would've said No. So you know. Look that doesn't technically get you off the hook on a witness tampering charge. But it does sort of you know. Make it less eerie. I'll just go ahead he. They've gone off. He's gone off easy on many other things including things related to to all this business but but he's going for is going well committee he. He may be going to go to prison because charming. That will be up to judge Jackson. It'd be up to the Donald trial that could who's taking. Yeah I know a very personal interest in this but you know we've we've seen in the past the politicization of the justice. I'm from both sides complaining about so when Bill Clinton met with attorney. General Lynch on a tarmac. Everyone on the Republican side was convinced that something wrong had what happened and that Clinton had some output in the fix on the Hillary Clinton investigation. It was something that was dumb and shouldn't have happened. There was no evidence of any wrongdoing doing but it was it was certainly improper. And I'm just waiting. I mean I Mitt. Romney hasn't tweeted yet. But I'm just waiting for Susan Collins to speak up strongly. Ah I've learned my lesson. Think you may have a long way to the justice. We used to have even guy like Chuck Grassley in the the past to care about whistle blowers used to care about issues. Like this and this is I think a big reflection of how the soda coat of trump has just reached into every corner of government in our public life. And no one's going to you know. Oh On that side. It's going to take issue with that. The the ones who've had their own little magazine and websites now and they don't get paid any attention and we will complain times. We'll have it's great stories and we're not going to have the type of three day four day five days scandal even longer that this would have happened anytime in the past. Although it is astonishing that this is happening like how many days I mean I guess. That's you know we got to do you day. We take care of all the enemies of the family right. Boom boom boom boom boom. You don't sit around you know when your boss you don't sit around and wait for Shit to happen. Been Gone pigging of mob families. You had an encounter today in New Hampshire with one Donald Trump. Junior tell us what happened. I guess if we're using the mob reference be calling the junior don well. I was at Shaver. Sean which is a landmark restaurant and the northwestern part of Manchester. Where sort of Canadian? In style they serve routine if you don't know what it is. I'm not going to describe it but smoked meat that you can get kind of Montreal and great breakfast place and it's also the type of place. Is that politicians always stop by to the photo op handshakes. So I was there with three members of my staff and we're eating are smoked meat in our big stacks of pancakes and French toast and incomes of Donald trump junior and his gal pal Kim go file former Fox woman from Fox News Fox and she's I think now she's running I think she's working for the SUPERPAC. Okay from the trump SUPERPAC. I think she has an official job But anyway they come in and they walk around and they say hello to a few few people. They don't come to our table now that may be because some trump volunteers earlier came over to us and try to trump bumper stickers. And we said we didn't want any any and sits down at a booth but before he sits down I take innocuous video of him just glad handing and I put it on twitter and say if you could ask I. Donald trump junior question. What would it be? And within ten minutes. Two thousand responses most of them are not even fit for this podcast. Okay but a lot more than what. What would you ask in? Lobby said leave please. But there were some you know what are the best offers you've gotten for the trump hotel through the GSA who funds your golf courses overseas. I mean there were some really good questions and then some That involve parts of the body and objects outside the parts of the body in any event. So I just wanted you know it was an opportunity. He came in which secret service. He sat in a corner booth With Kim and there was sort of a body man with him. When we walk out I'll go up and say something to him so we walk out and go up to the table I go? Can I ask you a question. And he kind of goes. Oh Okay Hey and I said do you know who you are. I don't know if you knew but I think Kim might might recognize me at some point in this exchange so you say you know I always this. I always wanted to ask you. I want to know. Why did you take that meeting with the Russian emissary after you got got an email saying this was part of an effort? Russian government sensitive secretive effort to help your campaign. I mean you know. Did you think that was appropriate. It and he says I've been through this all. I've testified that at and you telling me I can't talk to people. I talk to people all the time. I can't can't donate when I talk to talk to people and I said Yeah you do. There's nothing illegal necessarily about talking to people. But I'm wondering why you thought it was appropriate while you didn't think it was inappropriate to have that type of conversation at this point. His body man stands up like he puts his chest to my I chestnut. He's about five five for the body man but he's not a very big Bano and but there are secret service guys two tables over and they stand up. You don't move in but they're kind of close to begin with and but he stands up because we're just trying to practice here. We just don't eat breakfast here. I go I know I came over and I politely asked if I could ask a question. So that's all that's all I've done. And Don Jr. goes on about well you know I can talk to him I want and then I said Yeah but you were told that this was part of the Kremlin effort to help your campaign and at that point Kim pipes up and says no. He wasn't no he wasn't at all. He was never told that so that the guys almost as chest bumping either body man. I tried to push me away and he goes. You know we're just turning breakfast. I said well I'm I think I'm done here so I I leave and you you know the facts to well. Michael isn't because indeed there is an email saying exactly that the Versi mail he got about this was from the Guy Rob Goldstone. So who worked for 'EM INAUGURA this Russian pop star Blah Blah Blah. Helps it up the meeting so what you say. I love it nationally later in the summer. Yeah and it says says this is part of Russia effort to help your campaign so this was all filmed videoed and went up on the Internet and the tweets tapes out. There loved it a lot particularly liked the fact checked. I put up the email and said this is this seems like she's lying. Why would she lied about this? I don't know next time you see her out and about please ask her. But so yeah I should point out that Don Jr. has never testified in public public before any committee about what transpired so your encounter with him on video on twitter at your what your twitter handle again David Corn. DC Yeah David Corn DC will be maybe the only opportunity people have to actually see Don Jr. respond to questions about the trump tower. Many basically said you know what you should ask them to Biden. Yeah Right. We're here in Manchester on primary night. It just seems fitting that you would actually be able to do something like that Walk up to the President's son and ask questions like that only in a place like New Hampshire where we have like you know quaint democracy in action in and you know retail politicking and so trump. Relection I'm not sure we can do. Okay let's enjoy while we will enjoy it while we can and and Before you go. David Corn Win. Is that long-awaited paperback of Russian Roulette going to finally come out. Oh and sometime in the future sometime in the future before the election though sounded arguing over. Yeah I think we've got it all nailed down by the way. Hey Yeah you had a Typo in Mitt Romney's quote under the calling abuse of trust trust. You know that's what we have fact checkers for all right. David thanks for joining.

"It could be that there are some African Americans who go you know what I don't like I'm sticking with Biden. I don't give a shit. What those white voters in New Hampshire did I don't care destroy? He's trying McCain in some ways and well the Hampshire reverse Hallelujah McCain one New Hampshire in south you're on right right or or what Bush Bush was on the ropes in South Carolina because you've been beaten by McCain by a lot and he turned it around and South Carolina if people like an underdog you know so. I don't think Biden's GonNa win the nomination. But I think it's conceivable that he makes a mini comeback and get some black votes in South Carolina. You you know maybe exit out in South Carolina numbers in New Hampshire Very Bachelet's like and that's a big story today. Pathetic less than ten. This is a story that Biden former vice. So let's Warren. It's a big story that violence on the ropes. Here's here's a question for both of you. Warren obviously a big disappointment for finishing fourth. Does she get out before Super Tuesday. Or does she she plow through risking humiliation and losing to Bernie on our homestate in Massachusetts. Does she get out before Jon Ward does she. She get out before Super Tuesday. I think she gets out sooner than later. If these results continue and I actually kinda picked up a little bit of Simpatico Matico type connection between her and Klobuchar tonight. She made comments. I think in her speech that were a veiled shot at Bernie. Didn't she said something about Bernie's followers. It was. Yeah it was about hard lining yes about supporters kind of doing other candidates the dates which they did at the dinner on Saturday night and global jar made a comment that was sort of a an olive branch to warrant during her speech. That's something interesting to walk. How do you need to do what I'm going to do tomorrow? John All thing that I wanNA find out tomorrow and I know I've known both club. HR and Warren for pretty long time. But what I don't know I'm going to find out is what their personal relationship is in the US Senate. I know that Khloe Char does not a great personal relationship with some other senators which I'm familiar with. As in some cases her staffers felt like there was a toxic environment in in the clutch. Char- office and they've gone looking for jobs with other senators who kind of take them in his refugees from clovinger. But that doesn't even that doesn't necessarily are we gonna GonNa start reading more stories.

"In this race that pretty soon it's going to be down to Bernie versus this somebody not necessarily so. That's what everybody assumes. I don't necessarily true so I think that things are different now because i. I think you basically have four candidates now warren and well five because Biden could always make a comeback in South Carolina. Because nobody else ZIP nobody act. That mean mets Ossetian embarrassing. He's going to win the nomination. But in less Bernie he is really picking up a lot of black voters and Bernie has done very little addition. He's been in his. You know he's down more than fifty percent percent from where he was in this state for years ago and he lives next door. Brunell was burned person race. But why did you. Why did lose all that support? If you're a politician on the move you don't bleed support you. Also one place. His base is why it's very clear now is basis one quarter of the Democratic Party. Twenty five to thirty percent. I don't personally six percent cut and that was enough trump nominated. Well what happened with trump. And everybody's making this comparison trump was a new candidate so he kept people were tuning into him through all all the time and he was adding people are going like that. Guy and Bernie is so familiar like an old shoe. The idea of people going you know I mean some warn people will go go.

"Meaning from loose. We worked together a long time ago. No not the old I am old. Well okay but we're trying to do is there's a certain data to John and John. Welcome Thank Act. Act skulduggery from both of you. Jon Ward what is the big story of this evening and I think you have to look pretty closely at Amy Clova. which are I I? Kind of just WANNA caveat that you have to give Bernie. Sanders is due for winning again. But as we were just discussing. He's GonNa get a lot less votes than he got. Four four years ago here in New Hampshire. So that's you know he wins but he he's got some some real signs of weakness there so I think you know the fact that Cobo Char was fifth in the polling in New Hampshire a week ago came in fifth in Iowa now surges to third in the course of a week is the big story. How did she do it? And what is it about clothing. Char that this surge coming. When did it start? What does it mean? I don't know I'd be curious to hear John Thoughts on this. I kind of really I kind of I sky. Rumblings of it with my own two is really just a day or two ago I went to an event on Monday and I guess in some ways until you see it for yourself you know if it's for real but actually went to a warrant event on Sunday or on Monday and then went straight to a club which are event and the contrast was so striking. Well I mean she had this good debate everyone Rachi at a good rate and obviously there was something that this famously independent electorate felt was missing in this field of candidates. That's right John. So what what's your take. I wasn't totally surprised by it. Because I've you know I am so old that I've been here since not straight through but I've covered all these going back to nineteen eighty-four when Walter Mondale was expected to be the clear winner right through the last weekend and Gary Hart won going away so I've seen these big shifts. Before in several other occasions George Bush went from finishing third behind Pat Robertson. In the Iowa caucuses to beating Bob Dole and going is where the nomination so. I knew these things can happen when I saw amy in Iowa last week on the night before the caucus shed a really good event her stump speech was much better than the last time I'd seen her and I knew that however she did in Iowa would not be relevant in New Hampshire. Because they don't really care in New Hampshire how you did in Iowa and they never have but I still wasn't sure that she could do it because in the past she'd had pretty good debate performances and not converted them to anything in the polls. So I thought maybe there was a problem that she had that was insurmountable. The first inkling I got that things might be different was on MSNBC on Friday night right after the debate. They had one of these kind of town halls. Chris as does and like person after person person in that Town Hall said that Club. HR won the debate. And it's very unusual that you find a clear consensus on the winter. So even the the other candidates had to concede as Elizabeth Warren kind of did with the tone of voice when she was interviewed by. MSNBC on Friday that you know she hadn't don which you needed to do and that Khloe Char had one so look when you go through the numbers here. It seems to me you know the the big question is who's the Non Bernie candidate.
"democrats" Discussed on Part of the Problem
"You wouldn't obscene George W Bush come out and just say like you know the. Nobody likes Mitt Romney. That Guy Sucks. It would have been a weird thing to see and or whoever whoever Rick Santorum or someone like that it would have been very strange You just you don't usually see things like this. Usually they either endorse somebody or they They stay quiet until it's the general election and then they campaigned for that person. The other thing. That is kind of strange that it's not as if Hillary's endorsed Joe Biden. I mean Joe Biden was vice president. When she was secretary of state they were in the Senate together? They've you know they. They had a relationship when she was first lady. And Joe Biden was defending her rapist. I husband they've known each other for a long time and it's not as if she's coming out and endorsing Joe Biden and criticizing Bernie Sanders. She's just criticizing Bernie Sanders. So take from that what you will i. I don't know maybe the door still is open in in her mind but it's very clear that that she will never forgive Joe Biden. Excuse me Bernie Sanders for you. Know running against her there was not but that was her nomination in her mind. Nobody was allowed to challenge. It also just shows you what a Bitch Bernie Sanders is. I mean the fact that Bernie Sanders bent the need of this woman went around endorsed. Her went around campaigning. Being for and then this is what he gets in return. You know there's there is a lesson There's a couple of lessons number one. Don't be a bitch number two. Don't suck up to the establishment. You'll get nothing in return for it. That's I'm surprised. People haven't learned these lessons before. I remember when Rand Paul in two thousand twelve. Delve was like endorsing Mitt Romney. And he was saying all these nice things about Mitch McConnell and I know that he had this idea that he just endorsed Mitt Romney and and and Chummy chummy with Mitch McConnell. Then then they'd all endorse him in two thousand sixteen and none of them did he got no support from any of them. They're never it doesn't matter how much Bernie Sanders goes along with the party. The party never going to go along with him they were they ask Bernie Sanders about this and he just dodged the question. He was just like You you know they asked him. I mean he said something that was like remotely funny they asked him about Hillary saying nobody likes you and he said something like well. I should hope my wife likes me or something but again it just this really goes it. It just shows the weakness of Bernie Sanders and I know for a fact. I've talked to a lot of people and I know some people actually worked for the campaign and stuff there's a lot the people around Bernie Sanders. Who get really frustrated with this part of him I thought they were frustrated that he endorsed Hillary Clinton that he he you know like campaign for her That you know there was that whole like grass roots Bernier bust movement. And they want. That's what they wanted burning or bust and you know he he He basically told them No. Were Supporting Hillary Clinton and I know that there's a lot of them who are just fucking very frustrated that he won't fight he likes refuses to fight. Think about this right. Let's say Bernie Sanders is telling the truth which I tend to believe he has because Elizabeth Warren is you. You know a known liar. Let's say he was telling the truth that they like. This conversation never happened and he never said that a woman couldn't be president. Just assuming that's the case as I'm sure most Bernie supporters would would believe so Elizabeth. Warren lied about him. A couple of weeks before Iowa in front of tens of millions of people Lies About him. Basically calling him a sexist stabbing our friend in the back for political purposes And and then at the end of the debate he goes to shake her hand like a fucking chump and she refuses to shake his hands and attacks him and says you called me a liar On national television and what is Bernie Sanders instinctual response to that. What does he say? Let's not do this here. That's Bernie Sanders in a nutshell. Let's let's not do this here. Okay let's go that's it no fight. Nothing I'm sorry but if you're saying I want to overthrow the entire establishment album and I want to lead a revolution I don't you have to be a little bit more of a fighter than that. Now I'm not saying that Bernie Sanders is talking about leading violent revolution like okay. You don't need to be a killer chiller but you have to be willing to to stand up for yourself. And if Hillary Clinton you know it's like Oh my God the argument is right there in front of you it. It doesn't even take that much. How would you respond to Hillary Clinton? I mean it's just right there. Well I don't know I mean you the DNC rigged the system for you. And you still lost in the general cartoon cartoon character. I don't know you could just say that you could just say Like well I don't know I campaigned and supported Hillary Clinton and she seemed quite fine with me. When I was throwing my support behind are now all the sudden? Nobody likes me. She seemed to like me just fine when she was asking me to go speak on her campaign trail. That's it I mean. Just there's like fifty more just something you gotta give something. But he just he can't muster it up he Bernie Bernie Sanders. Just doesn't he doesn't have that. I don't know I've been speculating for a long time. I don't know if he just doesn't really care to win. He's already got his His next book in mind or maybe it's just a character thing. Maybe it's just a character thing where it's just. He's just a non-confrontational Guy Just doesn't have the courage to get into these scrums but it's it to me. At least it just looks weak and pathetic when these people are attacking you and then you're apologizing and do the same thing thing with Joe Biden. He ended up polishing that the guy called them corrupt. I'm so sorry he would call you. Corrupt you're corrupt. You know sure you're part of this corrupt system where the corporate you know. He'll say things like the corporations own the senators so okay so the corporations abrasions are paying his fucking family members while she's writing laws on their behalf but that's not enough to be labeled corrupt. I don't know I think it's GonNa take a a little bit more than that to get the socialist revolution that some of these people are looking for which is good we can capitalism can breath. These a I don't think Bernie Sanders. There's is the guy I mean. The the the irony of all of this is that Bernie Sanders would be the toughest match up for Donald Trump in a national election because Bernie Sanders would take all of that you know outside our energy away from Donald Trump. He would have all of this like populist. Pro Worker Energy But but I don't know I don't think he's got the the fight am to get there. We'll say it's not like he doesn't have a shot at this thing. Still we'll say a big part of that because Joe Biden is the front runner. All right guys. Let's take a moment and thank our sponsor for today's show one of my favorites They've been a longtime sponsor of the a show. Of course it is. Has she socks. You can go grab them over at Henry.

"About they can wait and they can come up with all sorts of fascinating things mazing things that no one's ever thought of before but it all has to come back to an accurate count of the actual population if you're ever going to make anything things statistically representative if your sample of the population is ever actually going to be accurate the art and science of getting a complete inaccurate population count has not advanced to the point where you can rely solely on people's records to get an accurate count and a member of the censuses in the constitution and it's in there for one purpose which is to is to determine the population of every state so that it gets its fair share IRV representatives in the House and <hes> and by extension in the Electoral College. The addition of questions to the census was James Madison's idea in seventeen ninety so it's always been done but it was not the original purpose if one of the founding fathers I had this bright idea to amend the Census Act Seventeen Ninety say as long as we're asking as long as we're counting has why don't we ask people what they're if they're a man or woman or what their ages or what their occupation is and so so that's why all these extra data are in in the census <hes> and it comes back to the head count so there's no way that administrative records Kurds can do an accurate headcount right now and the question is what additional questions you want to add on the census itself like age sex race as well as on the American community survey about how the work and so forth that cannot be accessed by <hes> not existing records this census for the first time he right in two thousand ten about two thirds of people Hausa got a census form filled it out and send it back which means the census bureau had to worry about the other one third and and that's called non-response follow up and they send them a letter and they make a phone call and they eventually send someone to the door this time for the first time the Census Bureau is gonNA use administrative records Kurds as part of non-response follow up so there are using administrative records if someone doesn't fill out the form and they refused to talk to someone sends us now has the capability I looking at Howard now. Do you know what they're using. In terms of Admin records like drunk doc drivers records or I don't know specifically. It's a variety of different sources yeah but but the kind of fill in the blanks they know this person exists but maybe is the age on on the driver's license says the birthday is X. so that that's fine and this will be a work work in progress over the next few decades at least in our lifetimes. It's not going to replace it. You need to keep in mind as well just by the nature of our country administrative records or not the they're not going to be the end all be all. A do you have to have a certain balance in your country and you can't have you know or at least as yet we've not been able to figure out how to have a diverse and extremely extremely diverse and extremely free country that also has perfect administrative strata records yes and now I WANNA go back to that part of the U._S.. Code I mentioned earlier Congress told the Census Bureau and the Commerce Secretary use administrative records first before you ask questions. That's what the court says Secretary Ross violated so that's on the law. The idea is for Census and commerce always being look at for administrative records that allow them to not ask a question. <hes> you mentioned a couple of minutes ago <hes> some legislation way back in seventeen seventeen ninety on the census <hes> right now congresswoman Maloney has the vice chair of our committee has a bill called the census idea act which calls for three years of testing and research before any question could be added to the census. Does that seem. I'm like reasonable methodology. Do you think that would be <hes> a prudent way of going about things so the insights association was <hes> an endorser of endorsed the idea act <hes>. We think it's a good approach. Actually there've been there've been a variety media different kinds of bills on this issue and I think the congresswoman's is probably the best approach because there are a couple of others that just simply wanted to forbid the asking of US citizenship question forever which we don't agree with because what we wanted to ask next time you know and again it's and I think the census idea gets to the point of adequate testing. I don't know I don't pretend to know enough to be able to say what the right amount of testing and the right number of years of preparation is but I think that that's certainly on the right track and it sounds like like the way the Census Bureau would not to approach adding any kind of question so that's why yeah we endorsed it. I approve and I support the legislation and the legend of the fact that legislations needed indicates failure on the part of the commerce secretary to to adhere to the Census Bureau statistical quality guidelines to to adhere to own bees paperwork reduction at guidelines until end to adhere here to the National Academies Principles Practices the Federal Statistically sees all three call for extensive testing and clearly the <HES> secretary ignored all that so the only none of them are in law and the only recourse is to put that in law to ensure that <hes> testing happens the way it should have and that concludes the second episode of of the economic explainer with the J._C.. Democrats I'm Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney and today we talked about the importance of an accurate census. If the trump administration succeeds an adding us as ship question to the survey we will live with the fallout for a decade and if there is only one thing you take away from today's episode. I hope it's that incomplete count would hurt businesses and undermine..

"We don't need to add the question to the census. The secretary overruled the chief scientists. The courts ruled that the secretary violated title thirteen section six because the secretary's choosing gene asked the question. Even though in the state of data already are available the third grounds that swim course looking at our constitutional grounds only two of the courts ruled on that than your case did not accept that as a grounds for the case but the Californian Maryland ruled that the commerce secretary violated the constitution because states have a constitutional right to actually have fair representation Tation in the House of Representatives and in the electoral college so they said that this edition of the citizenship question could skew apportionment and <hes> an electoral college votes because California <hes> and New York in particular could lose seats in the House of Representatives so to Howard's point they should if they do this right half to rule on each of these three laws one way or the other and. A- As a lay person just like Howard I don't see how they can rule against the lower court judges rulings about the E._p._a.. And <hes> entitled Thirteen sections six except that they just ignore it and come up with with their own reasons which would which would indicate that we have a problem with the integrity of our Supreme Court and that's the end of this economics explainer medicine. I'm Congresswoman Caroline and today we talked about some of the factors behind the Supreme Court's upcoming decision on the census. Here's the takeaway from the podcast. It is absolutely critical that the twenty twenty two Senio census be accurate and that the law constitution and Administrative Code Ba followed in conducting an undercounts effect on the census accuracy and by extension on the economy would be a disaster if you've enjoyed the podcast.

"Data Hearing Hi. I'm Rachel and I'm Randy immer from the J._C.. The staff and today we're here with Dr Andrew Ramer and Mister Howard Feinberg with a quick chat about how an upcoming Scottish ruling could affect the twenty twenty cents and our economy. Can you talk just briefly about the Supreme Court decision are are you optimistic. The thought the rule in the way that you want them to and where are they in this process right now <hes> based on the what I understand to be the questions that the conservative justices asked at at the April twenty third hearing it's not there questioning is not a cause for optimism <hes>. I'm not a Supreme Court expert. <hes> a lot of people are pessimistic. The hope comes down to John Roberts pulling a A._C._A.. In other words that Roberts was the key reason why obamacare lives because he voted with the Liberals and the hope is that he would do the same thing this time and and I think there's potential for Cavenaugh to do it as well but for the three justices hostesses as conservative justice. It seems like they're willing to do whatever Ross wants them to do and so I think the insight association daily filed an amicus brief in the case with a lot of other businesses we've really focused focused on the the ultimate impact on response rate and accuracy from the addition of the question but certainly just looking at it as the the bystander. I see a very clear line for the justices where they can say this was although the administration has pretty wide latitude as a constitutional matter in determining what's GonNa go on the census. They've also been given very clear guidance guidelines on what they're supposed to follow a process when it comes to setting up the census every ten years and they didn't follow that process so for pure process violations there is I see the armchair constitutional scholar here the receipt I put I put the constitutional concern us is and I'd say the process violations are enough. Enough that that should be able to provide an avenue for them to provide a prison produce a narrow ruling against the addition the three the Supreme Court is reviewing the results of three court cases that that all agree one in in New York one in California and one in in Maryland all three courts agreed that there were two violations of federal law by the Commerce Secretary the Administrative Procedure Act which is just Howard describe the process by which the census the Commerce Commerce secretary is supposed to go through before making a decision like adding citizenship question and all three courts ruled that he violated that he did not follow the process the second violation all three courts agreed on is <hes> <hes>. I'll just give you the the legal code is titled Thirteen Section Six which which says that the Census Congress told the Commerce Secretary the commerce sector that cannot add a question to the centennial census if the data are available through administrative records of the idea was not the burden households with questions for which the government can get the data from existing records. The memo that Chief Scientist at census sent to the commerce secretary. A year and a half ago said that we have the administrative records..

"Then what is the point of just changing our party leadership just for the sake of that what I'm hearing from you is that you don't feel like there's ideological or substantive sort of agenda driven core of this objection. No. I mean, if anything I think that what it does is that it creates a window where we could potentially get more conservative leadership. And when you actually look at the signatories, it is not necessarily reflective of the diversity of the party. We after about sixteen signatories, fourteen of them are male. There are very few people of color in the caucus. They're very there's very few ideological diversity. It's not like, they're progressives that are signing on. It's not like you have a broad based coalition uh. So I find it. I I I'm not totally bought into the concept. You just as Democrats just attempts which group that had sort of worked with your campaign early on you, and they sort of announced your plans to continue the process of primary incumbent Democrats, which is how of course, you got to congress. I wonder like how that how does that color the relationships you have with the incumbents there? Well, I think what's important to articulate what Justice Democrats is about is really. It's not their mission. Their mission isn't were gonna primary Democrats their mission is we're going to support working class candidates to run in midterm elections. And so they have supported and endorsed candidates in red to blues in open primaries, and but they do not shy away from from actual primaries and blue races either. And so, you know, I don't I don't I'm not sure if it really changes much because incumbent Democrats support and endorse against other incumbents all the time you had Dan Lipinski earlier this year. That's what had come and see is that is done. Part of the club hound. So so, but you have people that also support other primary challengers to incumbent as well. Like again, you have Dan Lipinski this year where you have Kirstin gillibrand Pramilla Paul that came in and said, we need change in this community. So I don't think it's anything to out of two to I don't think it's a departure from precedent? But I also think that we need to realize that at least for me, and what I tell my community is that we don't once we get elected to congress. We don't own these seats. We rent them from our communities, and we have to make our case every single time, and that's not can be. I'm saying this to you as an incumbent to be. And I realized that that that that means I hold myself to that standard as well. But I think it makes our democracy health very open that you a lot of what a congressional office does obviously in district is like social security. Disability payment wasn't held up in some logistical problem. And I'm calling up my member of congress be like help me out like that stuff that my my understanding is you don't have that much experience with that. Well, I mean, I know you were content Kennedy's off for like, are you how are you thinking about setting that part of this operation and actually constituent services was what I did in the late Senator Kennedy's office. And that's where I really learn. How important it was for us to have really robust constituent services because that is the real interaction that in everyday person has with their elected official. They say, hey, my Medicare isn't working out. Hey, my my visa application for my fiance isn't getting blacked. What can you do? And so really it cutting through that red tape of. Government bureaucracy in order to serve our constituents is a huge service that we can have. And it's something that we're really looking forward to building out an innovative way your district. I think include or adjacent to the new proposed Amazon headquarters right city..

"Right like he has resigned and that is why i'm not expelling him and then just be like look this is just republicans trying to steal a senate seat i think it will be really tough right if if new jersey hadn't just had this election right if if see if new jersey was had his election at the regular midterms we were talking about a running if you're talking about running the clock out a whole year then like democrats would have a real problem but this we're talking about two months most of which is consumed by christmas and thanksgiving and in which the election has already taken place it just seems like you know is cute of republicans i mean you know no one should be begrudged their opportunity to try to make people taken embarrassing vote or something but it's like it's a really pretty clear cut as far as these things go the difficulty is like if menendez chooses to be a jerk and his like saying he won't vacate the seat at all of his appealing yeah i i do agree that it's over hyped um especially because you need two thirds to expel so democrats can actually afford to let you know 10 red state um you know they're ten most vulnerable yeah up to a yeah a little higher depending on whether eminent if you know ran paul's got to get out of the hospital i mean there's like a lot of yet but but i'm saying it might joe manchin and heidi heitkamp might it might not be the worst thing in the world for them to cast a vote to expel or corrupted new jersey senator schumer can pretend to be really mad at the they could have like a huge screaming match like it'll be great but as long as most of the democratic caucus who are generally in safe seats or not up for reelection for a long time stay it line then it's not really gonna be in serious danger of having this expulsion uh happen.

"I think you know if you wanna look at something they'd more mirrors what democrats need to do to win the house in or you go look at something like the medicaid ballot initiative in may in right which mean is a state that hillary clinton won but to state that was shifting toward trump trump won one of the house district's there and has a very sort of classic example of you know a very white very working class but very nonsouthern and very secular population in in maine and those are the kind of voters that democrats used to do pretty well with not win necessarily secular white working class northerners but do do well well enough that with some college graduate said and others you you can when the state and in the trump era you know democrats were starting to do do much worse with with those group of people and of course means governor you know who was successfully reelect dad was running on a trump ist ethnic grievance politics in hopes long before trump he was absolutely he was he was trump without he he never had trump's media juice to like go national but in many in the he got a lot of attention and you know people like his controversial but but people like them but medicaid expansion ran about ten points ahead of hillary clinton which is just a good sort of reminder that pretty good campaign issue when you're running in white communities it it wasn't either another thing zone bozette it's not like it was like toxic in the more affluent coastal areas like people like these programs and still the most conservative parts of the state are still the the most workingclass parts of of the state main so it's it's not like these some of these like like red rose dreams where like if you run on populism it kumble completely in verse that the class logic of america the it was similar broad regional pattern but just like more popular than like hillary clinton's like woke liberalism was just like we're going to have more health care for people and that's i think not what you need to do to win in virginia it is what you need to do to win in manian and of course because politics is hard for democrats to win in like michigan they need to both appeal to.

"Oh and to start thinking about people who don't look like your her or people who come from other experiences that may be a little more attention to the communities of color who didn't turn out for hillary the way they had turned out for obama and then you know mm turned out you know set some of whom turned out in these local elections or a little more attention to the people who might not be protagonists of bruce springsteen songs or or you know the like norman rockwell paintings but who are still people who are far away from the political experience of suburban washing tony inns might not be a terrible way to actually use qualitative punditry to enrich our understanding of what voters are going to do an interesting thing that that happened here was when you look at some of the earlier special elections raid can which democrats had sort of over performed relative to to their previous scores of these house districts but had still fallen short one thing mid the democrats found was that like resistance fever was it was a real thing where democrats were becoming more engaged but it was limited to white professionals right an african american turnout especially had sort of stayed at like obama off your election kind of kind of levels and that's a key reason that the jon ossoff wind up doing a little bit worse than hilary clinton did was that you know there's a substantial.

"Symbolic affirmation that also leads to complacency and to me like a really telling thing in this regard is how democrats won it i mean virginia was sort of the the biggest deal but they also picked up these two state house of representatives seats at georgia in district's that they hadn't contested the last time around and that were close in 2016 but but hillary clinton narrowly lost thumb and democrats won both of those and i think pretty clearly that's just because the turnout drew i mean the turnout was low right of both sides not that many democrats voted and not that many republicans voted but what whoever that hardcore was who wanted to go vote in an offyear election in a special election race four georgia house of representatives which is jeremy like there were no stakes at all the republicans have huge majorities in those races but it was just more democrats did it because there are more democrats out there being like i wanna find a way to stick it to donald trump than there are republicans who are out there being like i want to find a way to to support my man and i dunno i mean that's going to be a problem for every down ballot republican particularly because trump is unpopular right if trump's start soaring maybe of them will have this huge sense of vindication but right now it's like you have the people who are into trump and like they're into trump and they feel okay then you have people who may be don't like some democratic policy ideas but they are also not that into trump and it's it's hard to win that way and that's the democrats found when obama was in office and i think i think we are suddenly going to find that everything democrats do tactically starts looking really good because trump is president i mean this is not an immutable look love politics all right like literally.

"Powerful republican gerrymander and it's hard to beat incumbents yeah exactly but what ended up happening is that not only were the closely contested races tipping in democrats favour but a bunch of races that weren't even on anybody's radar also flipped to democrats and and longtime incumbents were knocked off so you had um a member of the democratic socialists of america who was running as a democrat and he be one of the republican leaders in the chamber and that was just like a total shocker you have other races that were more known to be contested but we're still viewed as reaches for democrats which they also won they basically one sort of everywhere based on sort of the strength of the democratic brand a generally there was one type of candidate that one dan ballot it was it was just sort of every type so actually have a question about this i all i have after tuesday in it is questions i'm hoping the uk's concert some of them out for me but i've heard two different narratives about the house of delegates races i've heard you know at democrats and progressive say see this is why even if you think the racist hopeless you just have to have some one because in a strong enough wave election no matter who you have as long as there is the democrat someone's gonna vote for them and they have a chance i've also heard the narrative that these house of delegates races saved ralph nor them because people were super excited about voting for their house of delegates candidates and that that you know carried north them to a bigger margin of victory than his otherwise somewhat uninspiring candidacy would have had in those kind of see mutually exclusive to me like i ther the house of delegates candidates are warm bodies or they're the ones that are really driving democratic enthusiasm and i'm wondering what you guys think as to which of these is true well i definitely don't think they saved north them he won by almost nine points which is pretty convincing win i think it's more it makes more sense to think that both aren't coming from the larger trend which we did observe which is that democrats were enthusiastic and willing to turn out and um and i think one interesting thing about these have of delegate races in particular is that um.
