"Marketplace. Jim Taylor, yes. Dianne Feinstein took a few moments today to reflect on being the longest serving woman ever in the U.S. Senate. She will surpass former senator Barbara mikulski for that historic distinction on Saturday. The center issued a statement saying it's an incredible honor and that she is forever grateful to the people of California who sent her to the nation's capital to represent them. Feinstein's political career began with her election to the San Francisco board of supervisors in 1969. And she first gained national prominence in the dark hours following the 1978 city hall assassinations of San Francisco mayor George moscone and supervisor Harvey Milk. She succeeded moscone as interim mayor and then became the first woman elected to serve in that position. White House says North Korea is covertly shipping a significant number of artillery shells to Russia and support of its invasion of Ukraine. CBS Margie schaefer reports one expert believes it indicates Russia as having difficulty replacing its ammunition. The U.S. accuses North Korea of trying to hide shipments of ammunition to Russia. Covertly supplying Russia with rockets and artillery ammunition to use in Ukraine. That's non resident fellow at the Eurasia center at the Atlantic council Doug clane, who says North Korea is making it appear the ammo is being sent to countries in the Middle East or North Africa. Russia has been burning through its ammo at a very fast pace. It's been shelling Ukrainian military forces in firing rockets and kamikaze drones at Ukrainian civilians in major cities. It's doing much of this at a rate that just is not very sustainable. And Ukrainian forces have been intentionally targeting Russian ammunition depots, claim expects a dark winter in Ukraine as Russia is very intentionally targeting Ukraine's energy infrastructure to try to take out Ukraine's power plants so that in this brutal winter people will be literally freezing in their homes.

"Not alone. He's not alone. Biden is pushing 80 Pelosi. I think it's over 80. Dianne Feinstein is what? 95. I don't know. Yeah, so these people in politics, you find that I think it's like a drug. Power. It's intoxicating. Yeah, yeah. And so these people will, I mean, even if they're one foot in the grave. I mean, they actually, you know, Fauci, I didn't know he was 81. He looks pretty good for his age. I'm just saying. Yeah. Well, I mean, it's true in the Republican side. Remember the event that you and I went to, this was some years ago. That person did not look like Fauci. I mean, they look like they were about. There was a Republican congressman who came to our event. We were introduced him and I think he was a hundred years old. I don't know, but anyway, it's just really guys, you know, leave it to the young people to take over, you know, I think enjoy your golden years. Now with Fauci, interestingly, there's some speculation that he's worried about the fact that if the Republicans take Congress, they're going to start investigating him. Well, that too, but also keep in mind that the CDC is also undergoing all these changes. Of which the Republicans probably would have none of it, right? So they doctor willensky. Has said that they realize that they kind of dropped the ball during COVID that they were not that they would say one thing and then something else would happen that they would talk about mass mandates and you don't wear a mask and then wear a mask and then all of this stuff, right? That the vaccines would prevent what would cause herd immunity, which we found out did not happen, right? So there was a lot of misinformation from this communication. Let me see. But do you know what they claim is going to be the end all for them? Basically. That's the problem. What's the problem for them? An executive council get this. An equity office. That will help increase the diversity of the CDC workforce and ensure that the agency's activities take into account the role of diversity in public health. Okay, doctor walensky, let me just tell you, it's not the diversity problem that the CDC had. It's the political problem the CDC had. When you guys decided to go political, that's when people decided we're not going to listen to you. So it has nothing to do with diversity and everything to do with politics. So to put it a slightly different way, the CDC's real problem is that they lost the confidence of the Republican or right leaning half of the country. Exactly. Why did they do that? They did that because it became really clear from the beginning that the CDC favored one side over the other. The CDC was made up of Democrats, Fauci was a Democrat, of course, walensky is a democratic. I'll never forget that photo of Fauci rolling or the video of Fauci rolling his eyes behind Trump. Do you remember that? There was that. There was also the double standard in which Fauci was raising all these questions about Trump rallies, but then took a completely different line with regard to George Floyd protests. So the illegals coming in. Or the illegals coming in. Winning in all of these diseases and COVID, and he said nothing about it. He stayed silent about it. So the hypocrisy is what made people not trust the CDC. I mean, what's interesting, I mean, honey, talking about you, you have been actually a long time fantastic.

"Green report, getting rid of polluters is good for the environment, but California may have gotten ahead of itself in its efforts to clean the state's air. Many of California's older gas fired power plants were shut down before they could be replaced with new sources of renewable power. Veteran California senator dianne Feinstein has had a change of heart about the plan to close the Diablo canyon nuclear plant in 2025. The senator initially supported the shutdown, but she wrote an opinion piece in the Sacramento bee last week, calling on PG and D corporation to keep the plant open lager, Feinstein wrote the plant is needed to fight climate change and prevent blackouts during the transition to renewable power, with climate change already taking a toll, Feinstein believes the state needs Diablo canyon's 24 hour carbon free power because state officials have warned that power supplies will remain tight through the next three summers.

Every day he's hungry for something, whether it's attention, affection, knowledge, and there's this huge responsibility and making sure that when he's no longer under my wing that he's a good person. I think the advice I would give is you don't need to know all the answers. The craziest thing was believing that your dad knew everything so as a dad you felt like you had to know everything.

"State attorney general race Yeah I mean I think there is an attempt against the incumbent regime of governor Newsom attorney general banta to make crime and issue It's just not going to resonate We are so heavily democratic I mean governor Newsom is going to easily win reelection in November He will probably get 60% of the vote right now in the primary Same with attorney general banta He'll do extremely well There was a chance where there was a district attorney from Sacramento very well-known who changed a party registration from Republican to decline to state trying to say that I'm an independent I want to challenge the democratic regime But she might not even make the primary It's a conundrum People voters say they want independence When an individual registers as an independent they then don't get the support from the partisan Democrats or Republicans And so they don't make the runoff So she probably the greatest threat to attorney general banta was the DA from Sacramento She probably won't even make the run up So professor briefly take us through if you would you are top two primary system because not everybody in the country is familiar with that system which as I understand it what you do in California Yes I mean number one every single state in America has different election rules There are no two states that have exactly the same thing Every rule is different completely different In California we have what we call sometimes a jungle primary or a top tube meaning that right now today everybody's on the ballot and the top two vote getters irrespective of party will go on to the run up So you can have two Democrats to Republicans It doesn't matter And they'll only be two people It of course works against third parties because they won't be in the runoff It works against independence And in this case in California increasingly we end up having two Democrats in the general election like we did two years ago when dianne Feinstein was reelected She faced the Democrat when same thing with attorney general when Kamala Harris excuse me when Kamala Harris became U.S. senator not attorney general She also faced another Democrat in the general election A very different system than other states have It's fascinating Thank you so much for taking through us Take us through all of this It's Fernando gara He is Professor of political.

"Fun. Dare she another tangent of have you. Did you guys watch the night. Stalker docu series. Yes so much about that case. I didn't know until i watched that you have that. Yes the shoe thing is just ridiculous. Awesome but but there's one point where Dianne feinstein was at the time. The mayor's cisco head so i saw everyone when it was popular complete. Locate her ruining this case. She broke the case because the police were being so secretive. Nobody could give them any real tips and as soon as she was like. Here's a whole bunch of information to haven't sent to you guys. Police role angry that she all now he's going to change shoes now won't be able to realize it's him. They caught him like within a month after that after like almost a year because all the sudden people could they had something to go with for tips instead of just a rich guy he did change his shoes but it wasn't enough to spider didn't save him. I mean that one. Yeah it's really good. It's really it's so good and i bet i'm willing to bet that there are things about it. They didn't know. I mean not because they were these big secret things but just not i know about it but i didn't while i have you guys here since i can't chat with you while you're while i'm listening to the fuck you guys. Were talking in recent podcast about the changing imo in texarkana murders had it. Made me think about The night stalker. He had two different things going on right. One was the murderer or and the other was the sexual part. Yeah and they were completely like. He didn't connect those together so he ain't different things. Going on the part of this Maybe neurosis whatever issues. You want a little beyond that. Today's your day of understatement. Jerkin his neuroses always a bit understated statement. That's a good thing because it's like the thing of like how it changed. What we think about dna and like. Oh this automatic. There probably is a piece of profiling. Where like we're so used to this idea of an emo that you're not allowed to deviate or break from the it. It probably clouds the way we look at cases. Back right facet. So it's really fascinated with the the the the criminal justice part of this. Yeah and the negative. Yeah well i mean. That's i think is one of the things that makes it such fertile ground for discussion. Because you know. I think there are a lot of new podcast coming up true crime. Podcast is one that i really like that talks about crime but also doesn't deify the police and acknowledges that there's a lot about the criminal justice system that is not great and is not good and tries to center victims and things but i mean there's just so much to it right like there's serial killer around you want police around course right but also. They're not perfect. They make a lot of mistakes. In the justice system is not perfect and makes a lot of mistakes in like. Yeah there's just so much to it. Yeah i. I don't even think i dug on snow prosecutors. Most part there they do their jobs. You know like anybody razors. They're still doing a job at work right..

"Newsome's political career over. Well i mean let's put it this way. If he wins if he prevails in this recall now his political career is not over. I think he's automatically the guy that runs for another four year term and twenty twenty two now some people thought gavin newsom could be president one day. That doesn't look quite as good anymore. Thanks to comma harris. Who is kind of by the way a frenemy. I would say a little bit of a san francisco politician that they've gravitated toward. I don't think president may be but maybe the senate dianne feinstein you know if she steps down gavin newsom could be in the us senate if you wanted to again. These are scenarios if he prevails and again i think it depends on the way he would handle winning this election if he loses and he's recalled. I don't wanna say it's over but you haven't seen gray davis on the stage since he lost that election and that would be a major major blow and it would be a major shakeup of california politics because some other democrat.

"Larry elder gets to be governor. Two weeks from now after the recall Everybody in the liberal media has gonads no big deal. If larry elder becomes governor he's only going to serve until november twenty twenty two and will have no power anyway because the democrats control both houses of the legislature in california. So what if larry elder becomes governor await a minute. What did that caller just remind us. If something happens dianne feinstein. Who's sick as a dog. And she either is incapacitated. Or you know god forbid dies. We don't wish her will if senator feinstein can't complete her term. The governor of california governor larry elder or his biden would say elder gets to appoint the replacement senator and surprise. There's no more fifty fifty senate and that's the end of vice president. Kamala harris breaking all the votes and the votes and this would be just an interesting turn of events.

Republicans Aim at GOP Base in 1st California Recall Debate

"We want to move onto a brand new topic. Our friend hugh hewitt was on vacation but he was actually on a working vacation last night because he. He hosted a debate between the various challenges. To gavin newsom in california's gubernatorial recall election. A number of people were on stage. None of them were named jane fonda. Wayne i'm actually a little surprised that jane funded didn't accept the invitation. Yes one hundred and forty two year. Old Viet cong candidate was not on the stage last night. Did you see the san francisco. Chronicle article jane fonda was considering jumping into the into the race because she was worried. That gavin newsom wasn't going to be able to defeat the recall i. That's the thing about the democratic party is kind of. They're kind of putting older eggs into gavin newsom basket right if he goes down. There's really not a lot of democrats that are kind of running as that's a hard campaign to run right now. Say no to the recall. But if you do vote for me instead yeah i mean. It's really an untenable yet. Some you get some some low level democrats that are running in this because they need some name recognition for later on down the road or they're looking at new figuring he's vulnerable and there should be some democrats in the mix goes down democrat. Statewide that is that is trying to seize the opportunity and saying let's toss him overboard but let's hang onto the state. There's there's really nobody high profile making that case. Well in that case jane punish a jumped in i mean she's only eighty three years old. That's still younger than jerry. Brown wasn't his last nine. Feinstein dianne feinstein. So that was that was a little music but no jane fonda was on the stage last night he would love that actually but This debate that was carried by thirteen fox affiliates all around the great state of california and hugh promise to run an officiant and and respectful debate. And i did it. But but dwayne you did didn't how how did it turn out. It was as advertised. They really didn't attack each other much. They pretty much kept their focus. On on gavin newsom and they were all asked very smart intelligent questions.

"It. Well thank you that. I'm the first woman ever to lead by the way black orders woman or other spike woman. Okay yeah first woman of any color But i do think. I think you're seeing happen now. Is african american leaders are taking over being asked the lead traditional white progressive organizations fo. The year i came in move on They have an african american female leader. Working families party him chill Nina turner was early the year. before with. So you've got african. American leaders now leading traditionally white progressive organizations and what we say is that there is no white progressive versus black progressive like there's progressive and there are a lot of flack progressives in fact the route i think of progressive messaging is black. Like most people didn't know that martin luther king was a progressive. I mean he was. He was based on all the things that he stood for was probably closer to democratic socialists than traditional progressives super progressive and that's because what progressive party is about the progressive movement is about is about making sure we're taking care of everyone and i think that's a message just really important what i'm doing is the leader of. Dfa is reminding us if we don't deal with the inequalities that naturally exist if we don't protect everybody that we're not doing our job and that starts with focusing on black and brown people. 'cause they say you know when the world gets a cold black people get pneumonia. And that's because everything that affects regular people because of racism systematic. Racism are white supremacy. And what our country was founded on the inequalities against black and people make it harder. You saw that during the pandemic right you know. Black folks were more likely under businesses to lose their job to get sick to die from this pandemic so we had do. A progressive movement is be inclusive and so racial justice has to be a foundation of our work. We have to. We have to challenge ourselves in the ways that is a movement that we forget that messages on always here reminding white progressive organizations and white progressive leaders that we need to make sure that. We're listening to black organizers. Black leaders listening to the black community because those needs are are pervasive. You know we're celebrating pride this month and people forget that pride started were black transgender protests and And so every almost every major movement i was i was talking about a white women's suffrage and someone asked me to talk about when the suffragette like conveniently wrote out the role of black woman paid to get white women right to vote only to not get the vote for another four years So i think that's important. I think the progressive movement needs to be there. I think the problem is know. Even our organization was founded in burlington vermont arguably not the most diverse world. Now it is not there mason city. They have tall short people short white people. They're all about high diversity. We need to talk about that more under the real thing real thing. I happen to somebody. That is a little short as well. So i'm with i'm not count so anyway i think that's the thing is like not not realizing that those are those movements are combined and we just need to work more together and i'm loving what i'm seeing. Frankly when i'm loving the focus i am. I think i think part of it is. We had to get to a place where we just started to see that we were fighting for the same thing and that we have to start talking to our own white colleagues about censoring themselves about the voices of black and brown people letting black people and brown people. You saw that with. George floyd and all the things that happened around black lives matter and you know making sure that black organizers are given the freedom to be able to lead in for white progressives to be allies into san gap and so i think i think is going very very well and i think going forward. You're going to see more and more organizations like potassium browns with should browns organization as a progressive organization. They've always been a part of gross movement. She runs black. Black voters matter So we we always had. I think this This You know understanding the black and brown people have been naturally progressive for lots of reasons but then when the organization started to form they looked more white. We just gotta merge the movements. Unless they won't ask you what's barbara lease the said on this podcast a couple of different times. We've talked about the challenges of black women running for office to raise money And here and this is barbara. Lee saying this the national progressive icon and even though she largely doesn't Face a lot of challenges or challenges when she's running for a seat here in oakland. These bay She still feels that. She said she has to work. It's almost like three times as hard. What are you doing If anything to to help black women when they are running for office thank you for that question and barbara queen. So love her. very much. I'll things make me happy. So you know the first thing we've got gotta start early you know and in part of it is because it just takes so much longer particularly for statewide. We're talking about senate races and bfa Is probably support three black women in several black men for senate next cycle. So you'll see you'll see happen one it just it just takes longer. You've got to build the right team. You got to build it early. You know the you know the five. M's of campaigns is money message manpower women alliteration works better with man Metrics the media. And so i think is one of those things where with with black female candidates Start early and you have to have all of that done. I think the fact that Black women don't get as much support as twofold one this idea of electability which is a construct that is based in whiteness and base in the patriarchy or maleness is a challenge. And i've said it. Let's proven proven to be bullshit to be stone cold boot bullshit as we've discussed on this podcast. Yes i like the building recovering neck. Because i don't think people understand. I'm like white men lose your i'll say he. He wasn't elected often. They are you go so so when we got a challenge that and we know that they confront racism from traditional donors from organizations. And so we try to get in these races very early to show that they have some national support behind them and we try to build support around them so we do all the things we helped. Raise money raise awareness. We built our for them. We do all that stuff. You got to do all that early. But then you confront the other side which we don't talk a lot about what racialized in gender oppression does for black female candidates. Now you remember them. More white women supported donald trump than supported hillary clinton. And you think about the fact that there are still women who don't believe that women can win and they don't want to support women because they're afraid women can't win and then there are black people who.

And today we're talking about how frustrated some progressives are with some of their more moderate fellow democrats in washington from joe biden to dianne feinstein in. Our guest is yvette simpson. She's the ceo of democracy for america. One of the leading grassroots progressive organizations in america and an abc news contributor simpson. Who was the first woman of color to lead. The organization also talks about the new york city mayor's race where her organization has just endorsed a candidate. And now here's my conversation with yvette. Simpson that simpson from your home and cincinnati to mine in oakland california. Welcome to it's all political. How're you doing. thank you for having me. I'm doing well busy time. Y'all had no doubt yes. Let's let's start in washington. I wanted to get your take on a couple of things going on there Joe biden won many progressive when he Introduced his infrastructure bill and this massive infrastructure bill include a lot of money for green energy program. Soon and jobs and it would it would raise the corporate tax rate. And now we're stalled and now bipartisan group of senators come together and they said well we've got a. We've got different idea. There's no corporate income tax We're not going to raise that and it's it's decidedly smaller How where are you. Where are progressives in terms of losing patience with the joe biden and his desire to be nonpartisan. I think we're i think we're like hitting the edge of patients. My grandmother used to say you're jumping on that last nerve. When you take part and i think i think here's why right so a lot of us never expected the joe biden's dream bipartisanship ship was gonna come true. How do we know we've been watching them for the last sixteen years. The way that they navigate it with President obama when he first came in and of course the way that they've operated with the house in control unblocking bills in the senate when they had control of the senate so we had no wishful thinking that all of a sudden joe biden was going to go to the presidency and all his old friends from the senate. We're going to say well. It was shoe. Joe will work with you and so we you know we said right ideal but the reality is it's probably not going to happen so when he invited the republicans in the republican senators and negotiate the cova bill and they low balled the offer. Progress was like okay. That was cute. You saw what they were gonna do. Let's keep it in. And unfortunately joe biden continues to do this and i think what's been hard with the infrastructure. Bill is he's literally to go sheeting against himself now. So what we're seeing happen is. Republicans are not moving from their position but joe biden keeps lowering position and so that means he's negotiating in some way and what we know is even be meets republicans right where they are. They have no intention of passing. That bill they wanna obstruct so that they have everything they need. Going into. twenty twenty two to say see. Democrats are in control. They don't do anything and then in two thousand twenty four right so i think part of the frustration as we know we have the power if we just work with our own caucus to get these past. We need to get done by. We need to deliver wins in order to have the momentum going into twenty twenty two. What do you have the power. What about what about the joe mansions of the world. Here's a guy who. I don't know what leverage you'd have on him. He does not for reelection till twenty. Twenty four what do you do about the the mansions the cinemas of the world. When i think that's where by lisa's focuses essentially because you can't have bipartisanship if your carcass together and ss challenge so joe joe. Manchin is not ready for this kind of heat. I mean i think he thinks he is but he's not. you know. Joe manchin wins on the backs of union workers on white working class workers in west virginia who arguably have not been organizing long time meaning. They have not been engaged. No one's come to them and said. Hey what is joe. Manchin dumping you lately. When you see the polling this coming out of west. Virginia and the numbers about how west virginians are struggling. They need to know that their representative is keeping them from getting needed help. And so i think that's the no one's ever touched manager and this has to be the time so you're seeing kind of the weight stack up against him. You're saying civil rights leaders starting to see unions you starting to see progressive organizations like ours applying pressure talking organizing by white and black working class west virginians to stand up against joe manchin. I think at the end of the day. It doesn't reflect well when the most powerful man in the world arguably can't get one member of his pockets to move and i don't know that he's really tried. I mean there's been some real question about how much time joe biden spent with joe mansion. Letting him know what's at stake so between chuck schumer between vice president harris. And buying if you can't get loot. Joe manchin moving them. We're done right. Our caucus can't get anything done right so we really really need to focus on particularly joe man. Because i think he's been the most obstructionist. And i think what this shows is that he's got very little respect for the party. I don't think he has a lot of respect for joe biden. Because he obviously isn't. He considers himself the new leader respecting. What joe biden any by administration is trying to do. He doesn't seem to respect this constituents very much and so i think the one person he seems to respect more than anything right now. I'll because he's being used as a tool by mitch mcconnell and continues to do that even though it's against the best interests so what what is specifically going to do about Joe manchin are you. Are you planning any campaigns against them or you joining with others and campaigns against them alluded to that a second ago. What what's inaction against mansion right. Now it's both in so we in the process of organizing our own membership. They are we have two thousand. Active members across the state of west. Virginia doesn't sound like a lot when you think about the people power that those individuals bring to organizing people we've got partnerships with other progressive organizations our revolution People's action working families party all doing the work. And we're partnering with them on the grounds organize actions By working people in west virginia On mansion of course we're pressuring the biden administration through all of our contacts. We've been talking to are progressive senators talking to progressive members of the house Talking about how we need to work together to make sure that mansion knows where he needs to be joe biden makes that the number one priority and that you heard kind of the press over the weekend. Kind of talking about joe biden. Have you really sat down and talked manchin yet. Have you really. He needs to make that a priority because unfortunately great things coming out of the covid response. The bill got done. Fastback scene work seems to be going really. Well we get most of the country vaccinated. But you can't ride the kobe. Wave into twenty twenty two. You've got to be able to keep real promises to americans who came out in the middle of a pandemic. they were told it. Democrats got control if things would change. And you have to deliver on those promises and you can't let a parliamentarian you can't let mitch mcconnell. You can't let joe manchin. Kristen cinema getting away of that because what that means is that when we go back to those voters were constant talking to them and we say we need you to show up. They're going to say well. Why should i. I showed up last time nothing changed. They're blaming everything on joe manchin. Who is it going to be next time. And so i think that's challenging and i also just want to say kind of this setback..

Garland confirmation is a stage for 4 of GOP's 2024 hopefuls

"App. Federal Judge Merrick Garland is president Biden's nominee to become attorney general. He testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee today. The hearing lasted most of the day We begin with committee chair Dick Durbin of Illinois. This hearing will come to order today. The Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing on the nomination of Judge Merrick Garland to be the 86th attorney general of the United States. Judge Garland I wanna welcome you and your family. I want to welcome you back to the Senate Judiciary Committee. I know this return trip. It's been a long time and planning on you're here. Finally, this will be the Judiciary Committee's first hearing of the 117th Congress. Before I turned to my opening remarks. I'd like to just take a few minutes to make some Acknowledgments. I want to welcome my friend, Senator Chuck Grassley as the committee's ranking member. When I first came on the Senate Judiciary Committee 24 years ago, I was the ranking member on subcommittee with you, and we dealt with the issue of bankruptcy. Now Illinois and Iowa sit next to each other. And so did Urban Grassley. We have our differences. But Senator Grassley and I have worked together on important legislation over the years, most recently on criminal justice and sensing reform. I look forward to continuing that work in this Congress. I want to recognize the outgoing chair and ranking member Senator Lindsey Graham, who will join us remotely this morning, and Senator Dianne Feinstein. Senator Graham, as is true of Senator Grassley. Well, we don't always agree, has always been a welcome partner on many issues. Including one of the most challenging issues, immigration, Senator Feinstein. I want to come in for leading the committee Democrats with Grace and resolved over the past four years. I know she will continue to be an important voice on this committee on a host of issues, including in her new capacity as the chair of the Human Rights and Laws subcommittee, which I was proud to charity and past Congresses. I also want to welcome our new committee members who either be here in person. I see one in person and one probably remote senators Padilla And also on the Democratic side, Senator Cotton on the Republican side. I look forward to working with each of you. There's some historic first in the Judiciary Committee this year, Senator Padilla, our new senator from California, will be chairing the subcommittee on immigration, citizenship. Border safety. I'm honored that he's the first Latino senator to chair that subcommittee, and we look forward to his leadership. Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey will chair the subcommittee on criminal justice and counter terrorism. He's the first Black senator to chair a judiciary subcommittee. And we could not imagine a better choice at the helm of this particular subcommittee to all of our other members who are returning to serve on the committee. Welcome back. I want to thank all the committee members for agreeing to hold this committee hearing and vote on Judge Garland's nomination. It is a great honor to serve on this committee. The Senate established the Judiciary Committee by resolution on December 10th 18 16, making it among the very first standing committees of the Senate. This committee has seen many consequential debates and approved many important nominations and landmark legislation in the committee's history. There has only been one prior Illinois senator to serve his chair Judge Garland Lyman. Trumbull, who led the committee from 18 61 to 18 72, and during his term of service was a Democrat, a Republican, a radical Republican and a Democrat. Again. He was the most bipartisan senator, you could imagine His tenure was also distinguished by passage. Of historic legislation, the 13th 14th and 15th amendments to the Constitution. The Freedman's bureau acts of 18 65 and 18 66 Civil Rights Act of 18 66. The last of these was introduced by Trumbull ultimately became the nation's first civil rights law. As chair, Trumbull saw a nation torn apart by original sin slavery and widespread violence and injustice that continued even after the 13th amendments. Passage is African Americans throughout the nation face race. System. Our nation is still dealing with the consequences of these injustices. People of color face systemic racism, and we're still working to rid this nation of the horrific legacy of slavery and Jim Crow. This committee could make a difference. We have the jurisdiction and the opportunity to do it through legislation, oversight and nominations, including this nomination of Merrick Garland to service our nation's next attorney general. There have been few moments in history where the role of attorney general and the occupant of That post It mattered more Judge Garland should you be confirmed, and I have every confidence you will be. You'll oversee a Justice Department at an existential moment. After four tumultuous years of intrigue, controversy and brute political force, the future of the department is clearly in the hands of the next attorney general Under attorney general Sessions and successor Bill Bar. The Justice Department literally became an arm of the White House committed to advancing the interest. The President Trump his family and his political allies. It came as little surprise then that the U. S Department of Justice became the Trump Department of Justice General Bar stated clearly that he believed the attorney general was the president's lawyer, not the nations. And what were the results too many in the department's senior roles cast aside the rules law trump appointees in the apartment sidelined career public servants from Lyon attorneys, two FBI agents Limited their roles disregarded their nonpartisan input override, overriding their professional judgment and falsely accusing them of being members of the

Now the Democrat Party is in the process of dismantling the greatest experiment in the history of humankind. That's called the United States of America, where we will govern ourselves as a group. We didn't depend on all these lunatics climbing in over the fence and Crawling under the tent. But here they are. They're the Democrat Party. They're burning our city's looting, sacking, plundering, attacking the police. One little riot Washington and they soil their undergarments that 300 riots from them in one year, one riot from US and 300 years everything comes to a screeching halt in San Francisco yesterday. The land of rice, A Roni, the school board voted 6 to 1 leftist Democrats, but it's 61. They have schools there. They don't teach anybody anything. But they have schools there. Anyway. You gotta above siphon the text money off the unions and somewhere another and the school board voted 61 in San Francisco. To get rid of the names of the George Washington School, the Thomas Jefferson School, the Abraham Lincoln School and the Dianne Feinstein school. Their current And long time long, long time love you long time Senator Dianne Feinstein. But George Washington must go. Thomas Jefferson must go. Abraham Lincoln must go. And it turns out that they've gone so crazy that Dianne Feinstein must go too. And they just voted her by the way she comes up in. She just announced to the age of 87 the other day that she's going to run for another six year term as senator, But she's not up this year or next year. She's up in 2024 for reelection. And then when she takes office next time it was sworn in next time if she wants, and she will she'll be 90 and you know, that's okay. God bless you. God bless her heart. As they say so Washington Jefferson, their founders of the greatest country in history, the world and Jefferson, author of some of the greatest documents in the history of the world, but the left is insane and criminally insane and violently insane. And Abraham Lincoln. They say he oppressed indigenous people. Indigenous people were oppressed by him. Now the Democrats have been oppressing all of us for a long time. They're just getting warmed up to And Dianne Feinstein. Uh, also, the president's were among a list of men and women whose namesake schools will soon be renamed, including Francis Scott Key, who wrote the words the national anthem, former President William McKinley. James Garfield, James Monroe, Herbert Hoover Revolutionary War hero Paul Revere author Robert Louis Stevenson. These will all be eliminated, says the San Francisco Chronicle because they are flipping insane because they're mentally broken because they may have been abused. His Children are so I don't know what it is with the left, but they are. They're really brain damaged, and it's time now. You think I'm making this up? Even in elementary school, named for a current U. S. Senator Dianne Feinstein, the California Democrat, will be changed over allegations that she replaced a damaged Confederate flag outside of City Hall when she was the city's mayor. 1986, according to courthouse news. She didn't replace the flag after was pulled down a second time. But that doesn't matter because she committed a faux pas many decades ago. And with that faux pas she will be she will be crushed. Might it eliminated from history if there were statues of her that have to tear them down? This is this is today's Democratic Party. And San Francisco is going national and with in terms of the mentality of the left and the Democrat Party and Sun, But Joe Biden, who is he's here to help, you know. He's he just fixed racism yesterday, because, you know, because well, you know, the racial jungle. You know if there was school named for Joe Biden and have to tear it down there. Is there a school name? I bet they're probably I think of the University of Delaware. He's funneled some money. Federal tax dollars there and his wife went to school there. There must be something named after him there. It should be eliminated. It should be. I think destroyed it should be probably turned down on the Earth salted because lunch bucket. Joe is such a such an obvious racist. Now let's let's go because they're going to fix that. They announced yesterday they're gonna fix racism. And just the guy to do it is that is the racist. Joe Biden Now I mean, again, the 1993 crime bill. He was the author of that crime. Melanie bragged about it and asked years later whether he was proud of that crime bill. He Yeah, there is that Joseph R. Biden Jr School of Public Policy and Administration. That's gotta go. His is much worse than Feinstein is much worse than Garfield and they just elected him And he's the guy with the crime bill that put black people in jail for doing the same drug that white people walked free for. That was him. That was Joe Biden. Well, one was rock and one was powdered. One was one was worse and one was better. And he was asked. Are you proud of that? Proud of that crime bill thing? And he said, Oh, yeah, sure. I'm real. I'm the author of that bill. I'm real. I'm real proud of that. That's great stuff. So and what else? He was just a horrible, terrible racist racial jungle wouldn't send his kids to those schools. Black people go there. You're getting me. That's Joe Biden all right, And he's the president and he's gonna fix race. For the last 50 years. He hasn't Eight years. His vice president with acres as were the black president, didn't but yesterday fixed it. You know how with the stroke of a pen, that's how let's go to Joseph Robinette Biden junior From yesterday in the Oval Office at the White House, who big signing ceremony on the whole thing was was quite quite embarrassing. Um And when he wrapped it up, there was there was a moment when the press the White House press Corps, the esteemed in August, White House press corps had an opportunity to shout questions at him.

"Up a little from last hour because we're talking about the city of San Francisco in the biggest school district in America, the school board voted unanimously to take The names off of 44 schools, names like George Washington, the father of our country, really considered the indispensable man for creating the freest, most successful nation that has ever existed on the planet. And a man who if you take five minutes to look into it. Understood slavery was evil and needed to be ended. Abraham Lincoln, He's the president that goes back and forth with Washington as one or two. They go back and forth on any chart by historians ever of the greatest presidents we've had in this country's history. It's always back and forth between Washington and Lincoln and one of the greatest defenders of liberty ever to walk the earth. Both of those names are going to be taken off, along with a whole bunch of others. John Muir. Dianne Feinstein For reasons we explain last hour. Um, but but we're into crazy Bill Now we're just into crazy, Bill. Oh, I wanted to mention those of you who agree with one school board member who thinks we should not have names that we should go with numbers. I think that's a terrible idea. That's just that's basically just because of the New York school District's they do. He has 23 your kid goes to public school 23. They don't put a name on the school. I could understand the avoiding controversy with that. But the idea that we can't name things in this country because times change so rapidly, no matter what name you come up with. It'll be controversial, Controversial in the future is really a problem. We ought to sort out. Rather than caving to we, we have to put numbers on buildings right? And it's two groups of people, two distinct groups of people. The obvious is the woke types who believe will their present ists there too lacking in wisdom, or they're just too stupid. Understand that the past well is the single is the past is a weird place. They do things differently there. You're not better than the people of the past. You just exist now. And so you've learned from them. You're not better. You just came after to quote Bill Maher. So you have those fools Those aggressive, self righteous jackass is and it's a form of self, a grand eyes mint. Judge the figures of hundreds of years ago and say I'm far better than them. It's the most pathetic sort of chest pumping or Chester, you know, a swelling. It's just It's pathetic and disgusting. Well, and the line keeps moving, so it's so troublesome the way the line moves over time. It doesn't even it doesn't get ridiculous and stop. It keeps going. So Dianne Feinstein was seen one of the great examples of Fantomas Fenin. Standing up for famous people. Her female that your words straight Jack feminism. Momentum there, Lady Lady lady. I'm gonna have to get a running. Start here, old boy. One of the great examples of feminism in this country when she was mayor of San Francisco, you know, and then climbed up. Then she was one of the early female senators and all that sort of stuff and then chairing committees and all that sort of the now her name can't be on a school in the town. She's from Because views of the Confederate flag of changed right It used to be perfectly acceptable to have a Confederate flag. You didn't think it meant. Oh, your your ear in charge. You're a fan of slavery, but the right decided that now so I'm looking up. Here's an example. Emmett Till Do you know that name? His home is being declared a landmark in Chicago poor kid who was murdered by Racists. The civil rights here. Civil rights south. This is what will happen if they can come across anybody who conduct humint that he said something anti gay or trans phobic or anything like that in his life. Then he'll get canceled. And he can't be a part of history. So I just it just never changes that way. Right. So you get the cabal that combines Ignorance and ego mania. The present ists, Okay, and they're the most visible but understand and listen, I'm not a paranoiac. I'm a guy who's had just a passionate interest in political science and And the way human beings rule themselves my entire life. Marxist want to erase your history. Orwell wrote about this extensively. It's one of their strategies. You have to eliminate the heroes of the past. And so the radical left is joining in with the present ists and amplifying their voices and saying, Yeah, you're right and pretending. To be concerned about the racial aspects of the Confederate flag or a Blinken briefly toting a musket in the name of the Indian words or whatever they're they're not. They don't give a damn. They just want to impose Marxism, so this trend is so incredibly dangerous. It's not about a name on a school's not it's not And getting us to argue about that is a win for them because It's deconstructing right, as I mentioned yesterday, that's what's behind the whole two plus two equals five movement. You would wonder. Why are people working so hard at that? Well, two point Simple student equal five. Um, if you, uh, if you round 2.4 and 2.7, you would round those 22 and three would get five. So just why? Why would you go to all that work to do that? Because you want Everything to be different. You want to break down all the rules that have existed all objective reality all objective reality so you can start over great example. We don't have to look to history. Although there are great examples and many of them throughout history, we don't even have to look door. Well. Let's look to the Kim regime in North Korea.

Senator Dianne Feinstein, the California Democrat will be changed over allegations that she replaced a damage Confederate flag outside of City Hall when she was the city's mayor in 1986. According to courthouse news. She didn't replace the flag after was pulled down a second time. But that doesn't matter because she committed a faux pas many decades ago. And with that faux pas she will be she will be crushed. Might it eliminated from history? If there were statues of her, they'd have to tear them down. This is this is today's Democratic Party. And it's San Francisco is going national and with in terms of the mentality of the left on the Democrat Party and Sun, But Joe Biden, who is he's here to help, you know. He's he just fixed racism yesterday, because you know no. Because, well, you know, the racial jungle. You know, If there was school named for Joe Biden, you'd have to tear it down there a school name? I bet they're probably I think of the University of Delaware. He's funneled some money. Federal tax dollars there and his wife went to school there. There must be something named after him there. It should be eliminated. It should be. I think destroyed it should be probably turned down on the earth salted because lunch bucket. Joe is such a such an obvious racist. Now, let's let's go because they're going to fix it. They announced yesterday they're going to fix racism. And just the guy to do it is that is the racist. Joe Biden Now I mean, again, the 1993 crime bill. He was the author of that Credibility, bragged about it and asked years later whether he was proud of that crime bill. He The other is that Joseph R. Biden Jr School of Public Policy and Administration. That's gotta go his. He's much worse than find studies much worse than Garfield. And they just elected him and he's the guy with the crime bill that put black people in jail for doing the same drug that white people walked free for. That was him. That was Joe Biden. Well, one was rock and one was powdered one was Almost worse, and one was better. And he was asked. Are you proud of that? Proud of that crime bill thing? And he said, Oh, yeah, sure. I'm real. I'm the author of that bill. I'm real. I'm real proud of that. That's great stuff. So And what else? He was just a horrible, terrible racist racial jungle wouldn't send his kids to those schools. Black people go there. You're kidding me. That's Joe Biden, Uh and he's the president and he's going to fix race. For the last 50 years. He hasn't eight years his vice president with eight years as were the Black president didn't but yesterday fix it. You know how with the stroke of a pen, that's how let's go to Joseph Robinette Biden junior From yesterday in the Oval Office at the White House with big signing ceremony and the whole thing was was quite quite embarrassing. Um And when he wrapped it up, there was there was a moment when the press the White House press Corps, the esteemed in August, White House press corps had an opportunity to shout questions at him. You may recall how ran did they were with President Trump at every opportunity. At every turn and yesterday. No, no such thing. None of that. I can tell you. They just they, Peter Doocy asked one question about his phone call with Putin. And he didn't answer. He gave a wiseguy answer. And the rest of the press giggled and didn't ask any questions because they're not really legitimate press. It's like the third world. It's like the Soviet Union there, the left. They're not the news business. They're not journalists. All right. So here's Joseph Robinette Biden junior the racist yesterday. Was going to solve the race problem in America because you know President Trump. They had sensitivity training imposed at the Pentagon and other federal agencies and the military and in federal agencies during Obama, where everybody had to go in, instead of getting I e d training and go in and get racial sensitivity, training and transgenders, sensitivity, training and stuff. Mm hmm. And President Trump said this is ridiculous Waste of time and crazy left wing agenda stuff, so we're going to get rid of that. Well, Joe Biden announced yesterday that that's coming back with a vengeance. Look in the weeks ahead. I'll be reaffirming the federal government's commitment to diversity, Equity and inclusion. Reaffirmed accessibility building on the work we started in the Obama Biden administration. Yeah. That's why I'm sending the previous administrations powerful ban on diversity sensitivity training He's been drinking polished the offensive counterfactual Seventh East 76 Commission offensive knows offensive and healing must begin with understanding and truth. Not ignorance and lies. Ignorance and lies..

We could all use a good ST Patrick's Day parade, but Anyway, Um, let's get to something else serious before we get to Tommy, and by the way during Tommy's conversation Haven't shared this with him yet. But NASA Is now. Contradicting Their own will feel I say position on climate change. Course of It was global warming first. Well, wait a minute. When I was a young lad, itwas we're going into another ice age. Then it Woz. Global warming. Then it became just climate change, because then you can point to anything and say it's kind of change. Now. NASA says. It could be going into global cooling. How do they reconcile all that will share that with Tommy B. But first I do want to talk about something, and it will explain. A greater point or problem. With With what's going on. And the Senate and Congress and something that former Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown doesn't get enough praise for Right. So as of yesterday. Uh, dropped or, you know, finish their investigation. Of North Carolina Senator Richard Burr are Republican. And it was an insider trading probe, and no charges were filed. Now he was one of four senators to dims and two Republicans. Including Dianne Feinstein on the Democratic side, who were being investigated for insider trading. Related to covert 19. On Gueye. Berger is the last one to have The charges dropped. The other three. Had their charges dropped. Well, just no charges. I shouldn't say charges dropped just no charges. As a result of the insider trading investigation. That's that's for the other three trapped in May. I need to remind you of something, she insider trading if you or I get some information. About a company that's not public information. We get that information and we execute a stock. Trade based upon that information we can get in a lot of trouble. Member Martha Stewart. Well, um We can get in a lot of trouble. I don't even know why the DOJ investigated Burr and the three others. They don't really get in trouble. See Scott Brown when he was in office representing Massachusetts. He convinced Barack Obama To support legislation that would change that that you can't profit from insider trading information, and by the way, it's not just the members of the Senate and Congress. It's also their staffers. So obviously they get insider information all the time. And they had insider information about just how bad cove it was going to be, and they made trades based upon that. Don't know again. I don't know why the DOJ investigated these four It was just a sham. Because None of them can really be charged. Oh, because Scott Brown got that legislation through. And then Elizabeth Warren, who replaced him. In the Senate representing Massachusetts. No, she didn't support it. And the rest of the the thieves on both sides of the aisle, Republicans and Democrats as I said, to Republicans, two Democrats in this one Were agreed with her. They got rid of it.

The George Moscone and Harvey Milk Assassinations

"Hello and welcome to the podcast. I'm tracy the wilson in its november twenty seventh on a stay in nineteen seventy eight san francisco mayor. George mosconi and supervisor harvey milk were assassinated by former supervisor. Dan white white had resigned seventeen days earlier but he had tried to be reinstated as a member of the board of supervisors but while the mayor had initially said that he would be able to return to his job when he made this request. The mayor refused mayor. Mosconi had run on a platform of social progress and inclusion and while in office he hit appointed women and people of color and gay people to government positions white on the other hand had campaigned with the slogan of unites and fight and in one pamphlet he had said quote. I am not going to be forced out of san francisco by splinter groups of radicals social deviants incorrigibles. He had also voted against a gay rights. Ordinance in san francisco. The mayor had seen an opportunity to replace white with somebody who is more in line with his own goals. He had tried to pass a number of reforms before white's resignation and they had consistently failed by one vote so on the day of the murders mayor mosconi was planning to announce white's replacement but on the morning of the twenty seventh white entered the building through a window to bypass metal detectors. He entered moscow office and shot him four times. And then he went into the office of harvey milk in the supervisor's chamber down the hall and shot five times before leaving the building later on. He said that there were others. He had planned to kill it city hall as well. Acting mayor dianne feinstein. Who had been the person to discover harvey. Milk's body made this moment. Quote as president of the board of supervisors. It's my duty to make this announcement. Though th mayor mosconi and supervisor harvey milk have been shot and killed. The assembled crowd was stunned very vocal and once they were quieted she continued quote. The suspect is supervisor. Dan white whites defense when this came to trial was diminished capacity and that has come into common parlance as the twinkie defense. But that idea is really a myth. There were some mentions of junk foods in one psychiatrist testimony in this trial but it was really about being under huge amount of stress and prone to cycles of depression. So the testimony about junk food. Wasn't that dan white eight a bunch of twinkies and this caused him to commit murder. It was that the junk food based diet was a symptom of his struggling mental health. And that it also exacerbated the existing underlying problems. He was having the twinkie defense. Nickname was spread through news coverage. But doesn't actually describe how junk-food came up in the trial even though he had confessed to the crime and he had reloaded his gun. Before approaching harvey milk then white was found guilty of manslaughter rather than murder. He was sentenced to seven years eight months in prison and would ultimately serve a little more than five years. The verdict led to public outrage including what came to be known as the white knight riot and a candlelight march from san francisco's castro district to city hall california later abolished the diminished capacity. Defense in part because of its successful. Use in dan white's trial. He took his own life after getting out of prison. In nineteen eighty five and a lot of ways. The assassination of harvey milk has overshadowed that of mayor mosconi. Milk was one of the first openly. Gay elected officials in the united states and he was a known public figure and activist in san francisco. How or whether homophobia affected whites in the jury's verdict has been debated in the years since all of this happened and milk himself has become a lot more widely known in the context of the gay rights movement

Senate Republicans appear to congratulate Kamala Harris in Washington, D.C.

"Kamila Harris back of the nation's capital for the first time in her new role yesterday, casting an important vote and accepting congratulations in some cases from Republicans with more on the incoming V P and other news from the nation's capital. I'm joined by Maybe season as delicate terra. It has come to Harris even got a fist bump or two yesterday. Tell us about her day at the Capitol. Got straight. She did get a few fists on one of them from Senate Judiciary chair Lindsey Graham yesterday as they were quizzing the grilling rather, the big tech CEOs of Twitter and Facebook during that Senate Judiciary Committee hearing. She did return to the capital for the first time as vice president elect, and probably the most interesting thing to come out of that with the fact that she received a classified intelligence briefing in her capacity of senator which is interesting because she So far in her capacity as vice president elect has not been able to receive those briefings because the General Services Administration refuses to recognize her and Joe Biden as the president elected by President elect the General Services Administration being the body that kind of overseas the transition, so because of that, she and Joe Biden have not been able to receive that class of those classified intelligence briefings. But she did get a briefing yesterday in her capacity of Senator is does the GS to act on their own earthy at the behest of the president, who has refused to concede or accept the fact that this is a new administration coming in? So they technically act on their own. But there is certainly concerns. There are concerns that there could be you know political influence there and that the G s a is kind of doing that the president's bidding and then until President Trump decides to concede that they won't do it, either, But they do maintain that they are One of their own thing on act independently. I was Senator Chuck Grassley, who has said President elect Biden should be getting those classified intelligence briefings from the Trump administration. We learned yesterday has tested positive for covert 19. That's right. Yes, that's some bad news there. Senator Chuck Grassley, who is the most senior Republican in the Senate. He's just the second oldest senator of the oldest actually being Dianne Feinstein, who's just a few months older, but he is the most senior Republican. He's 87 years old, so high risk demographic there for covert 19, but his office does say he's not experiencing any symptoms. So that's good news. They don't know how he contract ID the virus. The concern is that he was on the floor of the Senate voting on Today, and he was also part of Ah closed door hearing or meeting rather with Republican leadership. People who were in that meeting, though, said that you know, Grassley has been really good about wearing a mask that everybody in that meeting was wearing a mask. But they're not too concerned about having contracting the virus. But he is, you know, the second this week that has announced that he is now isolating. After a possible covert exposure. The first being Republican Senator Rick Scott of Florida, certainly wish them the best. Thank you so much as always say, and that's a bee season as delicate era in Washington. Come

GOP's Mitchell Miller today on the Hill, Senator Dianne Feinstein, the ranking Democrat on the committee, fired off several questions on major legal matters, including abortion. Do you agree with Justice Scalia's view that row was wrongly decided, if I express a view on a precedent, one way or another, whether I say I love it or hate it. It signals to litigants that I might tilt one way or another in a pending case, And in response to questions from Republican Senator Chuck Grassley and Democratic Senator Patrick Leahy, Barrett made it clear she's had no discussions with the White House about how she might rule in cases involving the affordable care act or the upcoming election. It would be a complete violation of the independence of the judiciary for anyone to put a justice on the court as a means of obtaining a particular result. Republicans have praised Barrett during the hearing, which is now in a brief break, Senator John Cornyn pointed out. She has no notebooks in front of her, except for a small white pad.

News nation Washington correspondent Ashley Kits, supporters and opponents of Judge Amy Cockney Barrett demonstrated outside while inside the Supreme Court nominee appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Democrats like Senator Cory Booker painted a dim picture of how barrettes confirmation could impact the nation. States may write laws. They could subject women who have miscarriages. Two investigations to ensure they didn't have abortions. California Senator Dianne Feinstein focused on Barrett's potential role in striking down the affordable care Act. The case that's before the Supreme Court next month, Judge Barat You've been critical of Chief Justice Roberts for his 54 opinion. Upholding the law. Although Democrats say the Supreme Court seat should not be filled this close to an election, Republican Chairman Lindsey Graham says there's no reason to delay She's been a circuit court judge at the seventh Circuit. Since 2017. She was confirmed to that position. To buy parts with about partisan vote. She has heard hundreds of cases in that capacity. For her part, Judge Barrett promises to be impartial.

"The day it is the opening day. Of the confirmation hearings for Amy Cockney Barrett. We took Senator Lindsey Graham's opening statement. He's the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee in their role of advice and consent. We now return to Dianne Feinstein, the ranking Democrat on the committee, continuing with her statement, interpret law. Is central. I isn't centralized in one person or one branch of government. That's much. That's not a mistake. You all know, all right, Chuck Grassley's now up my feet is delayed. We had a live news feed, and then we've got a delayed feet. I was thinking that each member but only the ranking member and the chairman would speak. And then Amy Cockney Barrett would speak. Apparently they're going to go through will monitor it going to go through all the members first, which there's quite a few members on the committee when it's Kamala Harris is turn. We will. Dip back in and see what tone she's going to take. But the rest of them will see how it goes. They're all sitting there in the room. Most of them are sitting there in the room, so We'll see how it goes. It's a combination of in person and remote full of members of the committee have tempted positive for covert 19. So they II see, though Mike Leigh is sitting there. He was one of those members. He's probably been cleared, though, so I want to hear Kamala Harris and I want to hear, Of course, KONI barrettes opening statement, which I think is important to everybody. But as we're waiting for this to start, I want to play a couple of clips for you. Let's get cut one ready here just because this site issue of court packing It is. The concept of court packing is very specific and has been What it is. Forever packing the court's meaning, expanding the size of the court, the number of people on the Supreme Court because you're not happy with the makeup of it or the perceived makeup of it. Nobody really knows how these people will vote on anything until the case is decided. But That's what court packing means. Joe Biden and the Democrats are changing that very definition. Over the weekend. Joe has been asked this a lot, and if you notice he's not really pressed on it. Each reporter kind of has to go in and check that box. But they don't really hammer him down on that and refused to ask anything else and really, really keep going back at him, as they would if he were a Republican. And over the weekend, he said something very disturbing. To be honest with you, and it became the new talking point. The court is being packed now. I already said last week that the American public doesn't deserve to know what he would do on the issue. Right now. They don't deserve to know elect him and you'll find out I'll tell you what I'm going to do on this. After the election. But listen to Joe Biden set the tone and set the terms for what constitutes court packing, redefining the term right before your very ears cut one. Go ahead what they're going to focus on what's happening right now, In fact, now by the Republican after the boat has already begun. His cord is being packed. Now there's court is being packed. Now The court is not being packed. Now there is a vacancy on the court, and this became the mantra for the left. Over the weekend, and it was from journalists to elected Democrats and every other flavor of Democrats. In between. They ran with this, of course, Donald Republicans are packing the court. Republicans have not expanded the number of federal judges whatsoever. The Republicans have filled vacancies. We'll get into this more later on in the program, but It's important to note that they complained 200 nominees have been pushed through the Senate. Only because Democrats change the rules in 2013 because they wanted to fill those vacancies. They were warned. Don't get rid of the filibuster. You'll regret it sooner rather than later. The next year, they lost the Senate. So they regretted it much, much sooner. This is them, taking their own medicine and not liking it very much. It's their own damn fault will be back after news.

House, Senate pass bills to study the number of cancers striking military pilots

"PASSES BILLS TO STUDY MILITARY PILOT CANCERS FROM mcclatchy Washington bureau little bit late on that. I did I was GONNA say anything but okay. The Department of Defense would be required to identify how many of the current or former aviators have been diagnosed with cancer in in bills passed by the House and Senate this week a study long sought by military pilots who have questioned why there are so many serious illnesses in their community. The legislation was included in both chambers versions of the seven hundred and forty billion fiscal year twenty, twenty, one national defense authorization. Act following a series of stories by mcclatchy on the alarming clusters of cancer among current or former military aviators. I'm one of those including four commanding officers at a Premier Navy weapons testing base in California who have died of cancer since two thousand fifteen. Oh let me clarify I'm not one of those that has been diagnosed with cancer but I am a former military aviator. Two versions of the twenty one, twenty, one spending bill will now go to house and Senate negotiators to iron out differences before being sent to President Donald Trump to be signed into law. Betty semen the wife of one of the four commanding officers at Naval Air Weapons Station China. Lake. died of cancer. Welcome to the important milestone. She says since loving since losing I'm sure she loved him too since losing my husband I have met too many other families on the same unwanted journey. We all share a universal prayer that no other family will have to go through a similar loss today brings us one step closer to that realization Miss Seaman said in an e mail to mcclatchy but that's a great name. Her husband's name was a commander Semen S. e. a. m. a. n., and he is a naval officer. Wow that was he was in the if he was in Canada heath now be a sailor. So his last name. Is they're getting rid, of semen. Because of the obvious connotations. Changing the position to say okay. Let's see. Senator Dianne Feinstein from California introduced the military aviators. Cancer Incidence Study Act after mcclatchy reported that military aviators may be at a higher risk of developing certain cancers. Let's see. There was a little bit of information here. The database would include every service member since nineteen sixty one who served in an aviator role. The legislation defines aviators, members of the aircrew such as pilots and Napa who they included navigators in their two. Members of the grand create usually asleep on me. I did that on purpose because we have several navigators listen to the show. Let's see. WHO SHOULD WE? I'm offended at airline pilot guy dot com has the email address. And members of the ground crew who worked on the aircraft pilots who have been lobbying for the legislation wanted to ensure that ground crew such as enlisted personnel who worked to launch jets aircraft carriers were included. Because, they were exposed to many of the same radar emissions or fuels. The bill requires a database to be completed within a year. So I guess they're assuming that. The radar emissions and fuel and the jets have something to do with this. With these cancers. Anyway. So that's good. That they're doing this and I guess that. I will be contacted at some point. To probably. Yeah to fill out some kind of survey regarding my health,
