"Sam cedar. This is the five time award winning majority report. We are broadcasting. Live steps from the industrially ravaged gwanda canal in the heartland of america downtown brooklyn. Usa on the program today. Daniel melo immigration lawyer author of borderlines the edges of capitalism immigration and democracy also on the program today last night the house approves a continuing resolution. Punting the question of the budget standing it and debt ceiling race however it heads to the senate where republicans are all but certain to filibuster. Meanwhile the house should say. The white house convened democrats from both the house. And the senate over the stimulus. Or i should say over the infrastructure bills as a push begins to blame progressives over the corporatists who are act surely obstructing. Joe biden's agenda. Speaking of joe biden. He is facing a backlash from supporters on his immigration fails and it started to show up in his approval. Ratings joe biden's approval ratings are in the toilet and they've been draining ever since that introduction of the bipartisan infrastructure. Deal and speaking of the border. Texas governor abbott whose own favorability ratings are also in the toilet parks hundreds of cars on the border ostensibly to stop immigrants from coming in but more obviously to deflect from those dropping poll numbers also. That's not a joke. Court filings show. Trump's campaign knew their voting machine wasn't fact bs and at the un china vows stop building coal. Coal fired power plants abroad and the us vows to double its foreign climate change aid. Lastly joe biden announces more pfizer vaccine purchases to share a billion doses with the world course increasing. Everybody's wi fi reception five g. connectivity. All this and more on today's program. Welcome ladies and gentlemen. I of course was joking about the five g. Connective that comes with the visor shots. I think everyone knows that. It's mostly the madonna that gives you the best reception. Is that not correct. Emma viglen yes it is. It's only the ones that turn you into a cell phone tower though the j. one it's still questionable what it does to your dna for g that one. That's only four g. We that reminds me we the other day when we were discussing the j. and j. vaccine we were characterizing it as a fairly older. I should say typical technology. It isn't adenovirus shot and was corrected that really the only other time we've used in the context of ebola which is why you get the four g. reception from it but i just want to make that correction. Just in the way that we were sort of characterizing and it's being a sort of more run of the mill of vaccine the vaccine we have and they've found now that the johnson and johnson is also very effective particularly. You could also get a booster with booster shot. it would be Super effective as well so We have some very effective vaccines and a we are likely to see some type of approval for boosters for some cohort at least of our population berry soon. And it's also likely it appears. It appears that we're going to get the okay to provide vaccinations for children. Five to twelve and at least the pfizer vaccine and they are There there's there's a belief that there's going to be the size of the doses is going to be about a third in general like forty six million children in that. I think age group who are on eligible for vaccination charlie on blamed but could be open to that one side approval goes through which would change things for sure dramatically. I think you know. Even even if you had a significant percentage of those children vaccinated. It's gonna make the situation at schools much better and as a parent and who is aware of you know the that. I'm i am breathing a bit of a sigh of relief for at least anticipating one all right. Let's get to it last night. We mentioned our. I should say in. The headlines have mentioned that the continuing resolution and the debt ceiling passed in the house as anticipated Mostly i think totally on party lines. Nevertheless it's heading over to the senate where the republicans are going to filibuster. You don't hear about it you don't hear it. Articulated that the republican filibuster that much just sort of they expected not to pass now. Of course it would pass. There's going to be at least fifty one votes and that includes a republican in the senate but we have this bizarre rule about filibuster and the republicans are obstructing. It is not communicated the people we should be getting rid of filibuster. We're not going to. And so that's the situation there. How that resolves don't know yet Could be passed by. Its own reconciliation. Bill you'd have to have a vote a rama for each one of those provisions in. That's quite possibly what we might see. Meanwhile we have this dynamic on the to infrastructure bells one of which is actually the budget. The first is the bipartisan framework bill. The second is the three point five. Trillion dollar reconciliation bill. There was a deal made by nancy. Pelosi and some of these corporatists who are looking to to get rid of essentially tax raises. That would come in the in the in the bigger bill for people over four hundred thousand dollars a year they want to roll back some some rises and taxes you know the state and local exemptions that was cut out years ago and so some of these corporatists and they also want to roll back. Don't want prescription drugs to be less. Yeah the american public. And that's a huge bridge and save the government money all of these things. Tax raises medicare negotiating with big pharma. All of these things would save the government money which is what they say. They're in favor of but they don't want to actually implement programs to have the pay force four. Listen most of the people who watch this. Show are savvy enough to know at this point that the house democrats that want to kill some of these provisions. They received donations for their campaigns. They have friends and family or in these businesses from a large corporate donors who don't want these provisions in any type of legislation because it will it will inhibit their profit making ability. Same in the senate. When we're talking about joe mansion and if you look at the kristen cinemas donations she is also..

"Program. Welcome ladies and gentlemen. Thanks for joining us. It is of course Friday and that is the end of the week and emma. Viglen is here. I want to say something profound about friday. And then thanks after there's football. Yeah well i guess. Also yom kippur fast yesterday. So i'm a little bit Still a little bit out of it. Well between that and your and your food poisoning situation you know if that was public Maybe you lost weight now that you need to. But that's i appreciate that. I appreciate. I always try to take silver linings out of those kinds of situations. Not the die fast anyway. I'm a little out of it. Obviously myself so. Somebody's a little bit upset about giants. We're not gonna go into but It's people understand out there so a lot of things happening over the next couple of weeks. I mean we're watching the slow dissolution of the democratic infrastructure proposal as all the talk that we heard after the democrats won in two thousand. Excuse me twenty twenty that The squad was reliability etc etc. Now are watching a bunch corporate dem's who are servicing. Only really corporations. I mean let's be honest here. Is there really a constituency. I don't care how purple your district is that is in favor of higher price prescription drugs. I mean that's you know that's the question and mentioned in his daughter have their own district. And it's not just joe manchin and chris cinema. There are three democrats in the house who have been written about extensively who are able to take down. Apparently this prescription drug element of this bill. Which is So that medicare and the government can can negotiate rates for prescription drugs. The savings of which were going to be used to expand benefits for medicare subscribers. I guess and perhaps drop. The age of who is eligible for medicare should also tell you that when you start talking about medicare providing dental for a sixty five and over the the healthcare providers. The hair on their back starts going up because they start thinking like. Oh well if we're negotiating with medicare we're gonna lose money and that's basically the dynamic that that's going on here now. We'll see what happens but you know we know that there are at least seventeen. Democrats have publicly. Committed to not voting for the bipartisan. Bill if the reconciliation. Bill is not there at that time and there has as far as we know not enough. Republicans to essentially defanged that threat. Right and so and just vote for the bipartisan bill. To decouple it would be a smart strategy for them to do that. But i i mean i. I don't think they have enough there too. Extreme and wanting to oppose everything five is putting forward. Yeah i think. I think look at this point. The progressives should hold their ground and sink this stuff and make everybody pay for this situation. Because we're in the zone where if we cannot get an entire sandwich. Right now accepting. A quarter of the sandwich is not enough. Here's joe biden delivering remarks about his economic plan at the white house and really what he should be doing. It seems to me this calling out these democrats in the house. And in the senate by name and asking sh- bring one of your constituents over who's looking for higher price prescription drugs bring them to the white house. We'll give them a tour. That's what i'd like to hear him say let's ago fifty five. Most profitable corporations. America paid zero in federal income taxes on what amounted to forty billion dollars in profit out. Penny is not right. My economic plan change that not punish anybody. Just make them pay their fresh air from republican friends in congress. Don't want to change the law. So what are they doing. They're attacking me and my plan which is five. But if you're going to have a debate a seven honest debate. Republican friends are attacking. My plan is big spending. Remind you is it the same folks who just four years ago passed. The trump tax cuts totaling almost two trillion dollars in tax cuts a giant giveaway to the largest corporations in the top one percent. And listen to this. Almost non of that. Two trillion dollars tax cut was paid for just ballooned the federal deficit. In fact the unpeeled pay bills ranked up racked up by the last administration are projected increase the national debt by more than eight trillion dollars over time. When i'm proposing these totally different from that approach for three reasons i my plan is paid for is fiscally responsible because our investments are paid for by making sure the corporation wealthy americans pay their fresh air. Second we're not gonna raise texan anyone making under four hundred thousand dollars. That's a lot of money. Some of my liberal friends are saying it should be lower than that but only corporations and people making over four hundred thousand dollars a year in a painting this tax and third not only will know making under four hundred thousand dollars see their taxes. The middle class are gonna get some tax cuts. Some breaks my plan benefits ordinary americans. Not those top. Don't need help. Its historic middle. Class tax cut cutting taxes over fifty million families. Personally i think all this radical it's pretty stale right and it's all stuff that we hear before it's completely boilerplate stuff. Heard middle class. Tax cuts the wonders. Who who this who this is for at this point like i say none of this is This is new and the only thing that even sounded even remotely decent in that and it comes way too late. Why have they not been running against the trump tax cuts. Even if you're going to say we're going to get rid of. the trump. tax cuts were irresponsible. We're gonna get rid of all of them except for the ones that attacks people under you know that would increase taxes under four hundred thousand. Donald trump is singularly on popular in this country by at least the majority of people. Kristen cinema why are you. Advocating for keeping the trump tax cuts in arizona state. That is like the exact kind of demo right now that the democratic party is targeting. You know suburban and types voting against donald trump. And if you want if you're worried about four hundred thousand dollar won't say the trump the trump wealthy tax cuts the trump rich tax cuts. Whatever it is come up with somebody spent some of that money and figure out what trump tax cuts for the rich right. Exactly right. I mean that's it and but it just. There's a real feeling that the that actually doing politics at the white house seems to have been taken a backseat. I mean if there's been an inside game we're not seeing any of the we're not seeing any of the politics when we can just fall back on the beautiful path forward of senate procedure the only thing he's committed to in this area all right. We're gonna take a quick break when we come back. We'll be talking to astra taylor. On the ten year anniversary of occupy wall street. Folks got a couple of a sponsors today on the show common scenario..

"Here with emma viglen. Oh thanks very much for having me. Sam really looking forward to our conversation. Yeah i am too. Because i years ago when i started my political talk radio career. I had read a book right around that time. Who was back in. I think it must have been like two thousand. Four entitled emerging democratic majority by jewish. Bridges share and john judas. Yes i know that. I know that argument. I mean what happened right right. Exactly i mean the and the argument i mean. Your book reminded me immediately of that book because that argument was a largely largely not totally. But that in many respects a demography is destiny in terms of politics and be. The demography is in favor of the democratic party. Let's let's just start with that with the narrative that is built around that. That's actually a very good starting point. I don't know if you noticed. But john judas actually had an op ed in the wall street journal yesterday which in a way took back that argument. And i'm really not sure that either to share or judas would stand by that argument as it's been commonly understood today because We see a lot of changes that really. Don't resonate well with that argument and let me say as a starting point And so that people don't misunderstand. There's a fundamental paradox about american society that continues today and that is that american society visits racism on some and grants the possibility of assimilation to others. And that was certainly true. You know in the middle of the twentieth century when the despised once despised irish. Catholics jews and italians were able to join the mainstream and it continues. I think to be true today to maybe not quite to the same extent but but one sign of that assimilation is the tremendous amount of mixing. That's taking place in families that crosses these major s s. No racial and you know one sign of that is intermarriage which has been kind of going up very steadily sort of ratcheting upward and i follow the pew research center in this respect and their laced. Last measure is that of marriages taking place recently. Twenty percent roughly across these divisions and most of them the big majority involve white partner and a minority partner and the same can then is then reverberates in the child population so we have you know a growing number of children who come from these mixed no racial family backgrounds whether they involve marriage or not. And you know we know that one in seven children today born in the united states has parents from two different S no racial backgrounds soap. All of this is a kind of signal it's not all of the the assimilation in of itself. But it's a signal that they're kind of assimilation processes. That are ongoing. I think that has big potentially big political impacts that work against The argument that a judas and to shera made and we can already see that. I mean you look. At the electoral data from twenty twenty and one of the surprises was the degree to which latinos and asians even african americans voted for trump and. I'm sorry but i do want to go back because you have a you have a almost a I would say a redefinition of assimilation but a redevelopment of that term on some level and fair before we get there though. I want to go back to that to the narrative that is That has been at least somewhat controlling over the past twenty thirty years which has been this idea that i i forgot. The idea has been that. We're we're headed towards a minority majority society. Actually it's usually the other way around. But i understand art jordi minority. It's confusing. It's a confusing terms. But the that statement in of itself is is not correct because it miss it mischaracterizes or it's sort of like an olympic. Let me get. Let me unpack it. A bit if i may so. I think the majority minority society which is by the way according to census bureau projections supposed to take place before the middle of the twentieth century is really very misleading. As a way of thinking about the future that's emerging and so it envisions a society that truly is riven into two parts. We have whites on the one hand and people of color on the other hand. And there's no room in that in that binary ford the emerging group of people who have a foot in both camps as it were because they have a white parent and a non white parent. That's a big growing group. There's no reason to think it's going to stop growing and it just doesn't fit into this. This vision now. The data the demographic data on which the majority minority vision is based as you.

All this and more on today's majority report. Welcome ladies and gentlemen joining me. As always emma viglen alabama. Hello san folks. No guess today. We're going to go over the news of the wood wood the withdrawal and a couple other stories. That are a little bit more positive. Wanna start by playing this clip. This is an old clip. Plays gentlemen it is from two thousand and one near days after nine. Eleven in september of. I guess i don't of this september fifteenth or or what but here is a congresswoman barbara lee. She's on the house floor You'll recall. The invasion of afghanistan started less than a month after nine eleven. I think it was the first week of october. If i remember correctly and here's barbara lee and it's important to know the context at this time. I mean i you know. I experienced it only from from from new york city so i don't know what the feeling was you know. Outside of of new york really But i can tell you in new york city. People were in shock by think Probably around this time that she's on this speech. My building was evacuated because there was some reports that the empire state building was going to be hit and had the empire state building been hit. There would have been fallout hall within blocks and blocks. That i live. I don't know ten blocks away from the empire state building washington. Dc of course was also a target and And that's where barbara lee speaking so. She has not new york city but she has some personal yet. Understanding of what you know people were going through in the way. And i think you know everybody internalized it in some fashion or another but there's a lot of shock then obviously a lot of anger. It's important to know the context to appreciate what kind of courage this took in that moment. Here is barbara lee. Mr speaker members. Iran's today really with a very heavy heart one that is filled with sorrow for the families and the loved ones who were killed and injured this week. Only the most foolish and the most cows without understand the grief that has really gripped our people and millions across the world this unspeakable act on the united states has really reform or me however to rely on my moral compass my conscience and my god for direction. September eleventh changed the world. Our deepest fears now haunt us however difficult. This vote may be some of us must urge the use of restraint. Our country is in a state of mourning. Some of us must say let's step back for a moment. Let's pause just for a minute and think through the implications of our actions today so that this does not spiral out of control. Few did particularly in the context of afghanistan. She was the lone vote against the authorization of use of military force. I liked her voice shaking. As as you say the courage that took as the fury and the pain was boiling over and of course the already existing power structures at the pentagon. Were chomping at the bit like. I don't think that can be overstated. Yeah and it It was it was an intense time. Took a lot of bravery for her to do that. And then we've had twenty years and we're gonna talk more about You know the the afghanistan will will go over biden speech but we've had twenty years and Really there does not seem to have been had any point a long term strategy or purpose for our presence there and it's was quite evident after the release of the afghanistan papers that there was not even an attempted it appears and and the the decisiveness of the of the the fall of the afghan government. I think makes it clear that to the extent that there was some pretense that we were attempting to stand up the afghan government and train them and build institutions and train. The military to function on their own was even if that was the pretense. It was clearly not handled that way by our military and everyone else do you remember the resignation of matthew. Hoh in Two thousand nine. Because i i didn't until i was going through. A michael hastens book but until nine. He resigned and made the wash post. But here's a bit from his resignation to put simply. I fail to see the value or the worth in continued. Us casualties or expenditures of resources in support of the afghan government. In what is truly a thirty five. Year old civil. I mean the exact same thing is we don't have a purpose here. what are we doing. I'm gonna resign. Because i don't see what the point is absolutely and you know a abroad failure even during the The the trump administration i would imagine. It's gonna come to a surprise For many people that twenty eighteen and twenty one thousand nine hundred were the worst year for casualties civilian casualties since two thousand two. Tell john cornyn and who was trying to say that under trump there was very few casualties in two thousand eighteen. Twenty nineteen. we're record-breaking years in the eighteen years prior both in terms of the number bombs in the number of civilians that we killed and It was you know trump trying to And the war. I guess by creating some type of of of a vacuum and in distance between the inevitable failure of the afghanistan government and his exit if he was going to do that. We'll talk more about this on the other side as we go through joe biden's speech going to take a quick break..

"Fear. They will be soon overwhelmed. As kovic spikes causes a medical personnel shortage in florida louisiana and arkansas. And lastly the nsa inspector general will investigate tucker carlson's claims of being spied upon all this and more on today's majority report. Welcome ladies and gentlemen. Thanks for joining us. Joining me as always emma viglen. Hello emma hello sam. How are you today good. You seem pretty. Happy espresso smarting. Gosh all right Well that's okay. You're very. I'm glad in addition to the coffee. Well all right there you go so things world. Watch out where we really added today. We'll be talking to carolina soon so last night. The vote a rama which could have lasted. I dunno you know. Forty eight hours or twenty. Four hours was actually rather short for a rama. This is where in the context of a budget reconciliation. And where where it is at this point is there is now a framework. It's going to be three point five. Trillion dollars at theoretically. I guess could go down. But it has passed the threshold where republicans would be able to stop it. It is not passed any threshold. Where chris cinema or joe manchin could stop it or reshape it in some fashion which is what they're hoping for. Which is what the republicans hoping for their leaking to politico. Gop hopes that mansion cinema whittle. This down i mean well. We'll we'll talk in the second half of of the show about the what the strategies are here but but like you say the republicans are hoping that it's going to whittle down that is why mcconnell and you had what nineteen or twenty republicans. Agreed to the so-called bipartisan infrastructure. Bill because by by the standards that joe biden. Set that bipartisan bill was pretty anemic. Nothing particularly bad in it. Although there are some who will say it's a good point that joe biden's original proposal dealt not only with expenditures but how these expenditures happen within the context of infrastructure spending. That would have a structural impact on the power dynamics in our society david day and as a great piece at the american prospect talking about that issue in the context of broadband now. The stuff is a little bit titillating so because you know watch out but the point being that joe biden original proposal would have spent this money in a fashion that would have a probably provided more effective wider broadband because it would have allowed for more competition rather than expanding it in a way that ends up in the hands of the corporate bima months who control essentially the broadband in this country. And what is problematic about that is two fold one is that they do not have the financial incentive once you give them that money to distribute it and to deploy it in areas. That really are the most desperate for internet connected because also not coincidentally is the least profitable for these these companies to deploy for a smaller company. It might be this is their market and it might be more worthwhile for them to deploy and then the other issue is how that impacts the power that these major corporations have in our society so there are issues with the The bipartisan infrastructure. Bill that go beyond it being anemic and being able to be a supplemented by the reconciliation bill but clearly mcconnell realized. He had no way of if he sank. The bipartisan bill. It would enhance the ability of the democrats to pass those things under reconciliation bill into do so in a way that was less to the liking of the republicans. And bypassing the bipartisan bill. They hope it will give cinema in mansion room to reject parts of the reconciliation. Bill but I don't think we're gonna see the whole thing sunk Democrats will not pass in the house at least house. Progressive vowed to they will not pass the bipartisan bill without the reconciliation bill. And there's enough of them to do that. There's more than enough for them to do more than enough of i mean they already have the threshold for those who've committed publicly but they're going to be other people but join with them for various reasons. I would think so and also are in this weird situation where you know it would have been tougher. I think to do with issues that they might have had with the covert relief bill. But it's not like i mean it is. It is just sort of just shocking. How little this four trillion dollars potential Expenditure is being You know fronted essentially in our our our our politics today. And here's joe biden at the white house press conference yesterday. I guess very jubilant. About the bipartisan thing. There there's something anachronistic about this because there is no political science that shows that voters reward this particularly an off year election. There's just no science that that shows that there are you know maybe twenty or twenty years ago there was like a swing vote contingent. That was looking for this type of bipartisanship but this stuff is never rewarded in of itself. But here's joe biden. He's very excited. Because the word. Bipartisan it so he gets a little giddy up in his step. Let's watch after years and years of infrastructure week. We're in the cost of an infrastructure decade. That i truly believe will transform america. I mean the reconciliation has the ability to transform it. There's nothing transformative in the five hundred trillion. Five hundred billion dollars of new spending on the infrastructure. It is and frankly the way that it's distributed is even less transformative temple to think about how it is distributed over time in lack infrastructure decade because that makes the trillion dollar price tag look so actually imposed. It's not that imposing. And it's also you know i mean transformative would be where if the biggest number was not necessarily the highways but it was public transport or if the biggest number was The electric vehicles. Now i understand the limitations of the bipartisan. But but you know. Let's not kid. Ourselves is maintenance transformative. I'm exactly right. It is transformative in that when you drive across a bridge. The percentage of chances of Crumbling are going to be less. I mean i guess that's going to be nice. But i don't know from a i don't know that i would call that transformative like a coat of paint on a house doesn't transform the house exactly and i mean i wouldn't even touch-ups don't don't don't out. Yeah you don't want to go down that road and the interesting thing about this again is there just doesn't seem to be any talking points for the republicans here so the democrats certainly had at least in the way that they envisioned politics that play in sort of a closed circuit in washington dc. They had an advantage that hopefully. We'll be pressed in the reconciliation. Bill but maybe they should oppressed it in the bipartisan bill. Because even mitch. Mcconnell knew that if the bipartisan thing didn't pass reconciliation becomes that much more formidable in terms of of what could be done there. Here's louisiana senator.

Joe manchin says okay. All this and more on today's majority report Welcome ladies and gentlemen. Thanks for joining us this week. The joining me as always is emma viglen. Hello emma howard sandler. I'm well i gotta tell you. I am feeling increasingly anxious about about what's happening with the delta very Just about two or three weeks ago. I spoke with david. Wallace wells for The the show reported that we do on On peacock as well and He had written a piece that the children were safe. All along and that the children were simply not that susceptible to the wild type cova and there had been really no dated three weeks ago regarding the delta variant but this variant is significantly more transmittable. It moves quicker and you know the initial reports were that the vaccines were protecting people. somewhat from breakthrough infections but very largely against hospitalization and death and it still appears that it does it for jeff. It is less clear you know what's happening in terms of What's happening in terms of hospitalizations but we are seeing a commensurate rise in hospitalizations and deaths that is not necessarily the same ratio that we saw back in the peak during january. But we also don't have the same amount of testing going on and so it's hard to. It's really hard to to know what's what's going on. This thing is moving so quickly. Delta varian people are less likely to get tested when they're vaccinated much less. Yeah right opportunities to. I mean i know just around brooklyn places where i would get tested day. They're like well. We closed one because there's nobody tests. Now they're all starting to get booked up again And it's it's tricky. People gotta be careful. People are less not wearing masks as much. And it's a problem. Yeah and the places that are getting hit. The hardest are obviously the places with the lowest vaccination rates. I mean the fact that only thirty five percent. I think that's the figure. I wrote down here. Yeah thirty five percent are of people in alabama mississippi residents who are eligible or fully vaccinated with this delta variants. I mean we're going to see an exponential increase in deaths and. We're already up to over five hundred on rolling average and there was this insane wall street journal piece that came out yesterday. And they profile people who were vaccine hesitant including this one woman named sean parrish. She's a nurse. She has cancer her father and stepmother died of ovid and she's a nurse repeating that so she's you know literate when it comes to medical information refuses to get vaccinated also presumably working with around sick people. Yeah who might be a little more susceptible i. It's stunning and we should also say that you know there's we're are. We have seventy percent vaccination rate amongst adults in this country but it is not fully vaccinated. Think we're still like just hovering around. Maybe not even quite fifty percent fully vaccinated yet and so it's really It's scary people have got gotta just be careful for their sake for the rest of society sake and meanwhile the there to get ron to santa's down there in florida just like pretending like this happening. It's it's really stunning and in florida. Now represents twenty percent of all cases in the country and again this things moving so fast. When you look at a fourteen day average i would suspect that at one point the epidemiologists or whoever it is who look at these. You know who set up these metrics that that makes more sense to look at a fourteen day average to get a sense of what the trend is. They may at one point. Say this thing move so much faster. You only have three or four days for it to incubate as opposed to like You know five to eleven or whatever. It was in the wild type. This thing incubates so much faster that and multiply so much fast that you may have a more accurate. And i don't know i'm not a statistician but you may have a more accurate picture of what's actually happening with a narrower window because you're actually like fourteen day trailing has significantly distorting impact on where this is headed Going forward but we'll see but but folks should just you know Be p conscious and be careful out there The idea of masking and particularly you know you can get a k. And ninety five mask you going into a crowded place. We're already starting to think about. What are we going to do about the office here. But i think we're all pretty good about masking up other environments but still You know it's something to start to think about so that we can avoid Around i don't know where we like six of this five four. I have in terms of how many through. Yeah exactly speaking of around. I feel like. I've been punched in the face multiple times. Put slick virus. Sorry just collect. I'm luckier than most. But it's just at the worker virus the idea that we're dealing with. I mean and the longer that this goes on a people. Keep saying. I'm seeing when i'm bemoaning people who are unvaccinated or or like. I don't even know what to say that they get these two. We're trying to convince people people like. Oh you know darwinism now it affects you too because the longer this is out in the in the ether the more it's going to metastasized and become even worse than the delta verion. There's a lot more letters in the greek alphabet delta two now so keep that in mind folks. Meanwhile the the latest reporting we heard this just about an hour ago is that it appears that schumer thinks he's going to be able to.

"On today's program welcome ladies and john. Thanks for joining us. Joining me as always. Emma viglen hulo ama- hello for allowing the a personal day yesterday. Much-appreciated yes well. Well deserved. And i'd like to welcome you to the show. I don't see you as always these days. Now it's emma mondays and wouldn't go and go overboard quite yet but let me see next week. Who's still living. I mean on the show. Yeah those things have been moved around a little bit. And i couldn't find my keys. Whatever it's not a big deal. I mean i just like to keep the post. It's over and it's not a big deal folks. We're watching sort of a fascinating dynamic. Play out across the country now. We should say that there is reasonable. Believe that the Were you know in places where we have not yet been subjected to a significant spike in covert infections as a function of the dale delta variant. That we can anticipate something like that happening. But there's also evidence as we look at a london for instance so we look And in england and but even in this country the the spike happens happened also in india and then it hits a wall. The virus does knock on wood and then it drops don't if this is a function of seasons. We don't know what we don't really don't know they don't know what this is a function of theirs theories that you hit a certain wall with the number of people who are vaccinated or the number of people who have already been infected and the virus needs certain. I guess amount of of of kindling. If you would or fuel ges unvaccinated people uninfected people and then it just drops off but Usually and We've been interviewing people on other programs in addition to this room We are about a you know anywhere from two to six weeks behind What happens in in europe. Sometimes we so we thought happened there and so it's possible that like in the within the new york area. We could be looking by the end of august despite but then it drops quite quickly by by mid-september nevertheless There are some states around the country that are getting hammered. One of the states. That's getting hammered right now by The delta variant and as a function of their vaccination rate still Well under fifty percent in arkansas. We saw the other day The governor of alabama came and basically said we've got to get vaccinated matt real problem with the unvaccinated people in our in our state and she's a republican. We will say yes. There's been a bit of a turn. Ib indeed and here is a another. Arkansas i should say republican governor asa hutchinson from arkansas with the state vaccine official dr jennifer dila and listen to what happens when they start providing some information on vaccinations to To this event here that's been data dodgeville. Eighty you answer that so at this point in time there is no evidence. Go ahead bill. Great doctor so there is no medical evidence. This time that the combing back scenes impact timoti. There is a great deal of illnesses so causes problems with pregnancy. And feel the my so. I think it's important for people to have french matcher information. It's interesting that these people are quite worried about the long term effects of the vaccine but not really the long term effects of kovic which we know that long cove it has at the very least mental health implications for a lot of people certainly Effects in terms of you know a other physical effects so we know that there are long term effects from getting it and the vaccine. There's no indications that there are long term effects of it from it but you know at least be equal opportunity if you're going to be concerned about potential ramifications of what's going into your body and it's also a stunning that you become completely distrusted as soon as you are suggesting that people get vaccinated We will talk more about this later in the program but the santa's from florida also going through the same thing On some level right in part of it is you know i mean. These people built their You know who have built their political fortunes on this Cova skepticism and then when it becomes too much of a reality for them to ignore. It's very tough thing to tack back until those same people they will actually. It's pretty. I mean it's it's both incredibly disturbing in the context of of something like this and i have to say somewhat amusing to watch people like Sean hannity others and we will cover that later in the program. Twist themselves into a pretzel to be able to say both. Get a vaccine. But i'm not telling you to get a vaccine and they're trying to create the monster and also tamed. The monster at the same time and reap the benefits an impossible task. I think we learned that with trump by the way speaking of fox news indeed indeed all right. Well we gotta take a quick break when we come back. We're going to be talking to rosa brooks professor of law. Georgetown university author of tangled up in blue policing the american city but first word from a couple of our sponsors today things returning a returning to normal to some extent. We're starting to see. Actually you know a little bit Might want to wear your mask even if you're vaccinated in stores and stuff like that because why not but nevertheless if there are some trips that you can avoid why wouldn't you avoid them and even in non cova times i mean. Do people like waiting in lines heading out and I'm not. I certainly don't well. Here's one thing one place you can skip a trip to and you can skip a trip to the post office with stamps dot com. You can mail ship anytime anywhere right.

"Welcome ladies and gentlemen. Thanks so much for joining us on this friday. Joining me as always emma viglen. Emma i see that you you have made a half hearted attempt to To copy what. I was wearing today i did. You know if it helps you sleep at night. It was intentional. I just said. I wanna i wanna be you. I wanna be in my fifties and graying and all of those things. Yup i understand i understand it will take a little bit of makeup and Little hard hard living to get here Quicker than than than time would allow. But yes no i sleep. Actually one eye open It's there's a. There's a big Single white female vibe. You did you know that movie. Es i do. I do a single white female by. I do appreciate you did not wear the glasses today but i mean i've got us apart. Yes yes i hope. The audience understands. Who's at right well. Unfortunately we do have our names put right in the corner there so that makes it easier. We got a lot to talk about today and Pascal beyond talk about both the what's going on in In in haiti and also the he's a Queens native. And i want to get his opinion on the eric adams race and also how that ties in to the narrative that that some democrats are trying to push regarding the the radical sloganeering that apparently is taking place that is the reason why moderate Democrats can't seem to win elections properly. We will talk about that we will talk also about the Delta variant and this really astonishing. There's a couple of different dynamics Visor trying to convince the fda to approve of a third shot booster shot and the us government is saying like we have no data. That suggests that it's needed at this point. I think it's quite clear that the The vaccines are safe. But the question is do. You really need a third vaccine. Maybe ultimately we might but and and shouldn't we also be focusing on trying to get more people with their first and second shots particularly in the wake of what's happening with the delta variant really horrific stories coming out of Some states particularly in the mid west of of doctors in You know in intensive care units saying they've got a ton of patients who are who just regret not taking it seriously and thinking it was a joke and thing in that it wasn't real And the the overwhelming. It's almost i mean if you're going to speak in if you speak in generalities you could basically say you know broad generalities centrally no vaccinated. People are dying. You know The in in in may the a p Looked at the numbers found. Eighteen thousand deaths hundred fifty of those were the unvaccinated. I excuse me were vaccinated twice She has made similar claims about. What's happening in june. All the indications that we have at least anecdotally support that that worked by the ap If you're gonna speak in broad generalities you're not gonna die if you get the vaccine from cogan Certainly there are some but To the extent that there are some to it. it's a specific cohort. People who are already vulnerable To to cova we will talk about that later in the program. We're also gonna talk about this new law in texas six-week a ban a ban on abortion six weeks into a pregnancy and the innovation here is the way the state is hoping to get away from the question of whether it is constitutional. I stay to a bridge that right. They have said that. The the state government cannot enforce this law that this only creates a civil action literally somewhat. You could sue someone if you found out that they had an abortion system is still have to have standing. But i've exact well aside from standing you also need to prove damages. I mean and and so but we will get to that. It is in this environment like to you and i. It seems like a slam dunk. This can't go anywhere but you're talking about state court judges in texas maybe you're also talking about a. Us supreme court. That is the you know. Such such questions of consistency are are not foregone conclusions when we're talking about this court but let's get to What else we have today. Here is This is just incredibly unhelpful and I wonder if the to whom though. Sam well i yes yes yes to just about everybody's interests except for steve schmidt in the lincoln project and by that i mean is i take what happened on january six very seriously. It is highly problematic. there must be a both. I think in in specific situations criminal price to pay but there also needs to be a political price to pay for what took place and who was involved in it. Propublica has come out with Some findings that are are very preliminary and reporting that suggests that there was a contact with white house aides between Those people crashed the the capital and whatnot. I do think there are questions. You know there are situations where there is hyperbole that is You know un unhelpful. Just broadly speaking but I think you know i don't. I don't know that we've crossed that threshold. i think there was unhelpful. hyperbole about You know what some people call russia gate because what happens is it makes it much. Easier for people denies some of the realities associated with this and That hyperbole was both on the behalf like people who are promoting Sir wild theories about russia and donald trump but also on the people who are in complete. Denial.

"Yeah that's mcconnell is wanted to be hip i guess. And he's not he's not yes so there is That we will get to that going to talk about that audiotape. That came out the other day about joe manchin. Just i think it's one of the most fascinating living documents but it's not living document documents in terms of our modern political system and also the politics of the moment. I mean we should give credit to it. Didn't just come out. You know and ryan grim. Indeed yeah it was not it was they somehow got a hold of it and poi- i'd like to know how they did that but obviously Joining me Is emma viglen as she does Everyday emma hello how are you. I'm well how are you in fact some days. I don't even join you. I know look at that right. I mean how's everyone been enjoying my hosting. Thank you love through. The folks were g. That's now in me. Jacqueline allows me to telepathically communicate with the audience. Yes that's why you know articulate that folks 'cause just send your good vibes and fortunately emma's vaccine so she picks up on them. Yes yes. I like this thing. We're all set speaking of meta things. We should just address this. It was announced the other day that editorial workers had msnbc in the choice which is the msnbc. I don't know what the structure is necessarily but that's the msnbc on the peacock app right and it's not actually msnbc. It's the choice. We this show is licensed to the chose choice the majority report and then we have a second show which we call reported because we interview reporters primarily. I do which is a second show that plays on there and we also licensed that show to the choice and so we're they don't actually produce our shows. I i honestly don't know we also. I think it's probably hard for people to believe this. But we don't script our programs we do not. I know that must be shocking. To people i didn't. I wasn't just adding the stuttering as a way of making seem like the the words were my out. That's just me trying to hit a page account. That sam makes me hit. So i just put a lot of homes and is in their exactly. Here's a character threshold exactly. Yeah i was gonna say those margins are pretty big matt anyways so But i just wanted to do that for full disclosure because obviously this is a story in the news there have been other. Newsrooms that have unionized. The writers guild of america east. They're two separate entities. The writers guild of america west raise guild of america east and abc news. Boscell cbs news fast company huffpost the intercept salon. Slate vice. Vox conde nast this week. Oh conde nast this week right today. Two year fight. It was at the new yorker magazine as well. They went outside What's her name anna winters home. All that kind of stuff is long fight for them. gizmodo gizmodo media group and hearst magazines. So this is a happening and and so it is in the news and it was our responsibility to let you know that we have a relationship even though arguably at arm's like i don't know how this will impact us at one point. We'll get on to talk about that. I can tell you that my personal opinion is that i am completely in favor of of unionization. Msnbc put out a statement the president of msnbc put out a statement to the new york times put out by rashida jones. She's the president of msnbc. She wrote we're looking forward to continuing the type of direct open and honest communication that has already resulted in meaningful change at the network. Here's the statement and she says. I respect our employees right to decide whether they want to be represented by a union. And i believe our employees should be able to make such an important decision through a standard election process now. I don't know what the standard of part of this means. It's an election process. Two different ways. That a union shop can get unionized. And one is where you have. The the people who work there articulate that they want to have a union. There was a lot of names on that list. Yeah i i'll be totally honest. I don't have a sense of of how many of that editorial staff what percentage they represent of the editorial staff of msnbc and the choice but just my gas because we don't we don't have any staff like they have like and we obviously we don't even go to the same building. But i can tell you that. It appears to me from that list of people who have put their names on a document that was sent out that it's clearly the majority i don't know what what percentage but it but it appears to me. Now i may be wrong about this. And we'll dig into it a little bit more. And and certainly if i'm wrong about that i will announce a correction and so there's two ways that a union shop gets unionized. In this way one is those people say we want a union and they go To management is that we want a union and the manager says okay. We're okay with that or they say well. We're going to petition. The national labor relations board to have an election now I can tell you just from reporting on this dynamic for years very often. What management does is trying to take that time. This is why people wanted card check because card check is they just come in and say yeah i'll sign a card and that's it and then is a protects them in an empty well the majority of people but losing and anonymity to four. Like i mean. I guess i guess those organizing would have an idea but a car check is just. I'm gonna sign off. I'd like to have a union. And if more than fifty percent of them do and boom then there's a union there's no long waiting period and then a secret election later so that management very often uses that time to entice cajole intimidate all this amazon amazon in bessemer. So in my estimation when workers come to you and say we want a union your response to be. Okay you tell me who i talked to. And and so. That's what's happening and as this story develops we'll let you know we have obviously a You know responsibility to to let the audience know that you know. We have some affiliation with peacock. I mean i think most people know that With the choice app. I mean the peacock app the choice channel. I think most people know where. I wanna make sure that everybody does so did that. Yes he did now. Moving onto another network. You recall this guy. Tucker carlson on fox news. Yeah i think so okay. So tucker carlson. The other came out with a bombshell. He interviewed somebody from was it..

"Donald Trump will be announcing his supreme court pick on. . Saturday which means that he already knows that the individualism according to sources close to Donald trump his selection will be judge Amy Coney Barrett Their York Times makes a point to mention that she would be the least experienced supreme court nominee however <hes> she is a favorite among conservative politicians and conservative voters because of her Christian background but also more importantly and I think this gets left out in a lot of the analysis in the media. . She also would immediately invalidate the affordable care act she's on the record. . Saying that whereas you know the thing that people seem to be more focused on right now is Roe v Wade which you know obviously I don't WanNa be naive and just assume that she won't touch Roe v Wade but she is on the record saying that she believes in the precedent when it comes to reproductive rights even though she as a devout Catholic disagrees with abortion and all of that <hes> but Emma I wanted to get your thoughts. . We're talking about this a little bit during the break <hes> talk a little bit about what this means for the affordable care, act? , ? Certainly. So . that's my concern too. I . mean we're both women. . We obviously have concerns about our reproductive health but I think there is a hesitance in terms of justices overturning that precedent because of the ripple effects and how massive and that it would be I feel like it's just more of a political talking point for Conservative politicians to score points than it is a judicial reality. . That's the only thing saving us here. . What should concern everybody is that she's forty eight years old she has a history of pro-corporate positions that side with the with the employer against employee etc I believe and she's sided against. . I'm reading some of it here. . Things in gun rights she descended in a decision that would disarm felons for example, , after they came out of prison, , she's pretty extreme when it comes to those issues but for the affordable care. . Act's guys if it's six to three if she gets through and it's that solidly conservative, , they're going to do away with the affordable care act and then that's a conservative basically supermajority for decades at that point say ideally, , we got the Progressive President in twenty twenty four who wants to put Medicare for all through. . That's dumb. . That's what concerns me most about these decisions are yes. . The Supreme Court's been pro-corporate for a very long time for the Romney says, we're , a center right country and the courts been leftist for awhile talk to him about Bush. . Gore in citizens united whatever. . But but but yeah, , that's what scares me the most about. . This is the complete mixing of any legislation that comes through that could be progressive. . That's appealed Conservatives Appeal Appeal Appeal go the Supreme Court and they know. . It's just going to be overturned. INCORPORATIONS . can have a field day in big Pharma will be doing great. . Yeah I am definitely worried about this. . You know <hes> representative Ro. . Khanna introduced a bill that would limit the. . Time Supreme Court justice could serve on the Supreme Court to eighteen years. . I don't know where that piece of legislation is GonNa go but I I do think that it's important that you mentioned her age as you just did and how. . Her influence on the court will have a lasting ramifications on on this country really and yeah, , the pro-corporate angle is something that just seems to get lost in the fray lost in the analysis and I'm glad that we're talking about it <hes> in a story that will cover later donald trump signed more ridiculous phony executive orders alleging that he's <hes> protecting people with preexisting conditions. . The truth is those executive orders constitutionally speaking have no teeth <hes> but what it does is it messages to his voters that don't worry don't don't be frightened of the repeal of the affordable care act because signed executive orders. . They're not going to do anything, , but you know it's just enough to cover his ass while also simultaneously causing great harm to honestly all Americans because anything could be considered a pre existing condition. . If you tested positive for cove it, , that's considered a pre existing condition. . So this is going to have. . A damaging effect on so many people in this country I wanna read a quote from <hes> <hes> from this piece in the New, , York? ? Times it's <hes> by Aaron. . Who's president for the old Alliance for Justice a liberal group. . She says, , Amy Coney Barrett Meets Donald Trump's to <unk> litmus tests. . She has made clear that she would invalidate the affordable care act and take healthcare away for millions of people and undermine. . A woman's reproductive freedom. . Again, , I'm not entirely sure that the Supreme Court would overturn Roe V. . Wade I know that there's a lot of fear about that. . I understand that fear a lot of my fear again has to do with <hes>. . You know corporate shoes that make it to the Supreme Court and what is very likely to happen to the affordable care act at this point and remember the Supreme Court did strike. . The healthcare mandate, , that's an important part of the affordable care act. . That's what kept premiums <hes> low, , and you know when they undid that, , of course, , premiums immediately shot up and so we'll see how this all plays out, , but it is pretty terrifying. .

Having Fun wasn't holding it down here. Ty T. and just really fast on that. I know there's been some people who've been frustrated that we've been doing the commentary after the debate. I mean we would look trust me. We would love to live but you can't legally do that. You can't just you're not legally allowed to do adds a copyright infringement issue that we got away with earlier. I guess to say more yeah yes. Yes actually paying attention to us now. That's a good thing so yeah. It is upside downside anyway with that said. Let's get started lots of news to get to today. This is a story that unfortunately broke too late yesterday for us to cover but I do. WanNa make sure I fill you in today. The Supreme Court has ruled in favor favor of Donald Trump by temporarily allowing the trump administration to implement its new asylum rules while the courts decide whether or not not this new move by the trump administration is constitutional. This is likely going to work. Its way back up to the supreme court but understand that this latest ruling is temporary prairie. It's just meant to allow trump to do it. He wants to do now. As this case works. Its way through the courts. The Supreme Court in a brief unsigned order. You said the administration may enforce new rules that generally forbid asylum applications from migrants who have traveled through another country on their way to the United States without being denied denied asylum in that country so essentially if you are an asylum seeker and you have to travel through a certain country to get to the United States under through these new rules you would have to apply for asylum in the country that you're traveling through and it isn't until you're denied asylum in that country that you can apply for asylum here in in the United States of course this is an effort to halt all asylum seekers from Central America or at least most asylum seekers from Central American countries. It makes it really inconvenient convenient because as they're working their way up into Mexico it might take a while for the application process go through so presumably they just have to AIRBNB for like three months or something like that because they have lots the resources and they can afford to just wait around for the government to get back to them and also understand that what Mexico is doing is it is trying to prevent asylum seekers from coming into their own. I'm country so they literally have armed members of their military at their southern border to prevent Central Americans from coming into Mexico because a centrally puts the onus on the government government of Mexico to deal with the asylum seekers and they don't WanNa do it so they're guarding their southern border a little little more closely. They're carrying a lot of our loads here with paying for the wall and now paying for these asylum-seekers who actually wanted to come here obviously that sarcasm. They're not doing any of that. It's absurd. The trump even wanted to go through but just the thing that sticks out to me most is Merrick Garland. This is happening if Maryland were on the court or it would be at least a stymied in some sort of way but we have neil gorsuch instead of America orlands all has to do with the obstructionism of the Republicans so once again when we hear Nancy. NC Pelosi come out today and say. We need a bipartisan agreement before we impeach Donald Trump a reminder of who we're dealing dealing with on the other side. It's incredible. It's really incredible so I wanNA give you some more details on what the Supreme Court Has Given Donald Trump during his first term just a few months ago in July the court allowed the administration to begin using two point five billion dollars in Pentagon money for the construction of a barrier along the Mexican border order last year the court upheld president trump's ban on travel from several predominantly Muslim countries. Now there were two justices who dissented in this latest Supreme Court Decision Justice Sonia Sotomayor joined Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg dissenting dissenting saying the courts action quote upend longstanding practices regarding refugees who seek shelter from persecution Sotomayor wrote that the court's ruling also sidesteps the ordinary judicial process to allow the government to implement a rule that bypass the ordinary rulemaking process so what she's you're saying there is look you have an executive branch who is making decisions without going through. Congress you I mean we have that branch of government for reason these are supposed opposed to the lawmakers and trump is supposed to either veto or sign legislation but in this case you have trump acting unilaterally and then the supreme court because of how it's now stacked against common sense policy will protect him and will help to implement those policies even as it's working its way through the federal court system yeah and the law is incredibly clear your migrant. You're allowed to apply for asylum. This just did this only subverts the law. That's the point of it. I know that concerns. Let's say that you know it's the it's the letter of the law we just check. Were you know textualist. We'd like to look and see what does it actually say super clear. We're here but what's equally clears. They have the numbers and so they can do whatever they want. When it comes to these immigration issues as you pointed out they're always going to side with them and so while again as you pointed out it's it's going to work its way back into the Supreme Court if you would like to believe that they'll change their mind between now and then you're free to do so. There's no evidence that that's actually going to happen and this is going to screw tons of people well. I mean this is literally a life or death issue. For many migrants people will die as a result of this you could argue. That's the entire point actually stop them from coming from the Middle East group who people coming from Syria people in Bahamas. You can stay there and dive. He won't even if you're an American citizen and Puerto Rico. We're going to leave you there to die. We're not gonNA help you out. At all Central America you can stay there and you could die. They they call it America I of course at the same time screwing over his own people too so it's not really America I it's just definitely middle fingers ever around the world that's exactly right and I do WanNa read a little little more from what Justice Sotomayor wrote in her dissent because it was strong and she made great points and unfortunately we don't have as many thinkers like like justice soda or Justice Ginsburg in the Supreme Court right now but she makes such a great point. I mean look at this is more. It's frustrating the case itself office frustrating but it's really more about our system of government and how it's supposed to work and how this really just flies in the face of all of that she writes unfortunately it appears. The government has treated this exceptional mechanism as a new normal historically. The government has made this kind of request. Rarely now it does so reflexively show so rights once again. The executive branch has issued a rule that seeks to upend longstanding practices regarding refugees who seek shelter for persecution. I read that part earlier. Although this nation in has long kept its doors open to refugees and although the stakes for asylum seekers could not be higher the government implemented its rule without first providing the public we can notice and inviting the public input generally required by law yeah yeah of course and I hope that everyone who thinks that the supreme court art. Is this a neutral arbiter of laws and that they're just completely put away from or they're isolated from politics takes a long look at what's happening right now. We still pretend like these judges are isolated from the political machinations of the day and that they are really just acting they see the letter of the law and how they read the Constitution and the tax and their own judicial philosophy. It's this myth this American myth that's been going on and on and on for the past few decades when it's impossible for them to be isolated from politics we have TV. We have the Internet. We have news everywhere every single day so let's move move beyond this myth that just kind of aggrandize is the the American system and makes. It seem like we're something better than we are. This is the reality. Let's deal with it now. It's a politicized court as are all the politicized courts and the Democrat as are all the courts and the Democrats better catch up because as you look at the lower of course they're stacked with conservative so while the Democrats are still pretending in this old school myth about American exceptionalism the Republicans are quietly stacking courtship. It's very dangerous conservatives who are doing things under the guise of of constitutional ones with very little pushback from Chuck Schumer Right which which is incredibly frustrating. I mean he struck a deal with Mitch McConnell when it came to confirming many of these federal judges and just to buttress your point and reinforce force it the reality is when it comes to this particular case an Obama appointed federal judge struck this new asylum roll down and then you have a trump appointed judge saying I know it can stand this constitutional. I'm fine with it so yes. There are activist judges. There's no question about it all activists on the left and both on the right and that's okay. That's the new reality unless the knowledge it. Let's stop pretends move on because while the liberals are pretending the the the Republicans are the ones who are doing the dirty politics per usual yeah by the way is sort of said that this was that they're doing this reflects reflexively now and you should expect that will become more common because they have set up inherently eh undemocratic but potentially sustainable situation where the executive branch and the Senate are set up in a way that artificially increases the the electoral power of Republicans. It's much easier thanks to electoral college and the way that the Senate Bene- benefits small rural states that they can control that that gives them the supreme court by the way because they have the Senate and so they we have the majority there so the president can simply make executive orders knowing that's a supreme court is going to protect him taking over the Senate is going to be incredibly difficult difficult because of the way the system is set up and even if in the one branch in or one part of one branch and in the house where it's not set up in a way that says easy to manipulate they're still trying with voter suppression and things like that Gerrymandering but it's harder okay well then you can take control of that and we did but it doesn't matter if the Supreme Court and the executive branch of working hand-in-hand in an end yeah. It's not a democracy. It's not yeah. It's a great point. I found a result too and instead. We lost democracy. Okay John. All right talk to me. Let's move on to some other news. This one's a doozy new reporting indicates that the trump administration did nothing when it discovered that there were spying devices near the White House and in other sensitive locations research indicated that those devices were placed there by the Israeli only government and again trump has responded with absolutely nothing no action whatsoever the miniature surveillance devices known as stingrays mimic regular cell towers towers to fool cell phones into giving them their locations and identity information.

"When you wake up choke down your morning coffee. I just I told you about that tweet before the, the break there, the news. And you'd think adults would look at that and go, okay. All right. Whatever the president, basically posts a video, and you can find it on his Twitter account where he. It's just there's Trump sizes of stream of trilling, sterling Trump signs, twenty twenty eight twenty thirty to twenty thirty six all the way up to like the year nine thousand or something like that is, it's a funny video set to music. It's harmless fun. But you would never know that, by the way left has reacted to it. It's a direct threat to our liberty. We must begin impeachment proceedings right now as you get Jerry Nadler, on the phone knocked pet sandwich out of his mouth, and tell him one person isn't shouldn't need a foot long or six foot long sub just tell him that and then let him know about what Donald Trump is planning. He must be stopped media, right? This is the supposedly sane real journalistic outfit, that looks at the media and reports on the media. They have a post up by somebody named Aiden McLaughlin. The headline Trump posts insane Twitter video threatening to be president for eternity. Threaten. Okay. That's not what the video is. But even if he were, if Donald Trump came out today and said, I will be present for eternity. I think that's not possible. I don't leave rely of medical journals. So maybe I missed something. But I think if we found the secret to eternal life, it might have made them, the bigger wider news, it might have escaped the pages of the New England Journal venison and then crossed over, you know, not many stories do, so maybe there's a bit of a lag time. But this is the world that we live in, if Donald Trump is for it, the left is, again, if Donald Trump actually found the key to eternal life, the left would be all against it. I mean, they did were responsible for one hundred million deaths last century. So I mean, they do have a history of it, but I love the they are very serious about this. And the post they have journalists after journalists tweeting about how this is a dangerous precedent. This is what is going on here. What is happening? How could this be? We must. Stop Donald Trump. He has to be stopped. He's, he's talking about the twenty second amendment now. He's talking about ignoring reality, and living forever. That's what he's talking about. It's called the joke and we used to be able to take them. Now, we elect them that's the difference. Now they control the house of representatives. We used to be able to take joke. Now, they run the house of representatives, and they run every major media outlet. Somebody named Emma? Viglen. V. I. G. E. L. A N D. She is, she's part of the young Turks, which is named after a group of people who committed the median genocide, but you gotta love that jank Uber name like what can I name, it Nazis, a little too, on the nose? But I still want the genocide vibe. I've got it. They young Turks and their allegedly wildly popular on YouTube. Although if you look up the popularity ranked their videos by popularity. The ones that talk about, like celebrity nip slips, those are the videos that get the millions of views and their discussions of politics, don't get that many. But once you find a billionaire willing to cut you checks. You don't really have to produce must be nice to have a billionaire patron, if there are any billionaires out there looking to get in the patron business, get a hold of me, but she saw this video from the president of the United States, immediately, clutched her pearls. And then I imagined typed with one hand because she was so disturbed couldn't let go of her pearls, she, perhaps she's like one of those five hundred pound people who grow into their couch, but she's got her pearls touch soak lightly cut tightly that maybe she can't unclench them. She tweeted out, I'm not one to get riled up over Trump tweets, but this one is pretty damn scary. This man doesn't believe in a democratic form of government. And now he's putting feelers out there. He must be he has to be defeated. He's putting feelers out there for eternal life. And this will. Is supposedly, you know, a journalist for the young Turks? So the bar is pretty low the world limbo champion. A hard time getting under this bar. It'd be considered a journalist for the young Turks. But this is the modern left. It's not just the lunatic over at the New York Times who can't take a joke. It's everybody. Everybody's forgotten how to take a joke, and it's all because of Donald Trump. It's incredibly sad and disturbing but I bet you this'll be Rachel Maddow right now is ripping up all of her scripts that she's meticulously written. She wants. She got a corner of her report card from Donald Trump's second grade report card and a third card marking. She was gonna do an hour on that about how this big scandal that is citizenship was only a B, plus a now, she has to pull it out because Donald Trump has secretly found the key to eternal life, and plans on, never leaving the White House. This is what's going on, on the left. So when I say it's the woke Olympics, it kind of is the woke Olympics. If you just mean woke in terms of everything is incredibly. Stupid and we're still year and a half. We're still a half a year away before the Iowa caucuses and this is how the left is responding. Well, you got them going after Joe Biden for saying he's able to work with horrible. People. We've got Joe Biden's campaign talking to media outlets like the Washington Examiner saying, we've tried to talk to him to tell him maybe you should probably not use racist, Democrats as examples. You could actually know say Bob Dole I used to be able to get along with Bob Dole, and nobody would go. That's disgusting. How can you do that? But no, he has to pick, not only to segregationist racist Democrats, but to people that most people have never heard of there are more voters of me in the millennial generation than there are in the baby boomer generation, that's a scary thought, let that sink in. So when you're pulling up deep cuts from the Democrats racist past back to the sixties of senators that you worked with the try and give examples of how. Civility used to rain you are causing people to go, who the hell what is he talking about, you could use examples from their lifetime? Joe John McCain. Okay. I don't think you and John McCain agreed on a whole lot, John McCain is a squishy Republican, but I don't think you know his pretty good on most things about ninety percent unconservative issues. You could've used that example, but crazy uncle Joe couldn't do it. His campaigns worried about it got Cory Booker out there, saying, I could not be white guys running mate, because I we need diversity on the ticket with what the hell is diversity. If white guy, a black guy is not diversity. When we come back, I said, there's so much more to get to. We still have to get the Justin Fairfax, but talk about AO sees latest defense. He's really drawn. A line in the sand on this concentration.

"So if you were Al Franken in twenty sixteen and you went to the prayer breakfast visited know that this is going on, you know, I have to think that there was a lot of not knowing that this was going on. Which is why this story is so interesting as well. Maybe it seems it seems suspicious to begin the Tina and torsion. I mean, listen, I'm with you. What I'm saying? Even if you don't know about that, even if you don't care about even if you don't care about anything having to do with any Russian that's for lifting the world. Yeah. It seems weird. I well. So look let me be in the middle here, which makes sense. So John is right. I I never would have gone into the breakfast in the first place because I know that they're right wingers. Who are we kidding, right? And who the Democrats kidding? They're not nonpartisan. They're not left wingers. I wouldn't want to go at eight and a bet their policy against they'll GT community at cetera et cetera. Right. Like, Hillary Clinton has this flowery quota by dug co and how wonderful he is to her. I'm sure he was okay with it doesn't help fix any other things. But to Michael's point. Now, what do we know? Well, from earlier to our team has stories we now know that they're paying for Republican congressman to go to other countries, and actively lobby against LGBT rights, and and their lives and a lot of cases. And now, we know through the FBI and especially. Council that they were infiltrated by Murray between that's a fact and her handler is the one of the top rushing ARC's torsion, that's a fact that's new and now through TY T investigates. We know another layer to it, which is that it turns out they were actually paying for the Russian to ten so now that greatly in meshes the national prayer breakfast. With Russian oligarchs that clearly had an agenda again best case scenario is were useful at the Russians thought pain for us to come get. You know, the oldest influence and power with both Republicans and Democrats. How did we get this lucky? There are other worst-case scenarios. But we'll see how that develops and something called the national prayer breakfast. Shouldn't be backed by group like this. And if if it is then than people should not go to the national bird because it's not that. I mean, that's what I think the name is really deceptive not just because it's a soft name. But because it leads people to think that this is somehow the president always goes, it's an official government. Function when it is clearly anything, but. Yeah. And the president normally does go. Yeah. And so I and angry with Michael again. Let's give these folks a chance. I mean, I'd be really surprised if Ted lieu and Kirsten gillibrand continued go to breakfast. So they let them absorbed. A report let's ask them about it. And then and then let him verify let him go through that whole process. And then we'll ask it if they say, no, you Know, know, what? what fighting those ubt rights across the world and and paying for the Russians to come influence us. We think that's wonderful ideas. We really like it it. We'd like to say, okay. Well, then that's a different way. And now, we should ask them about it. I mean, we should take this to them and go to the offices of these democratic members of congress and say, hey, now that this report exists are you going to go to the next purpose, which I presume his next month. It's usually in February early February. And Michael, you read our mind and Emma Viglen now is going to follow up and reach out to all those offices and ask them. And so we'll find out whether answer is, but it appears that this group is unconscionable from a progressive perspective. Let alone the legal issues they have now that is going to also probably get revealed in the next month or two we already know parts of it is we just explain any could be even worse from the blackout parts of the plea deals that are not yet public. Yeah. Spring. Yeah. Now when we come back. Oh, boy, they're establishment Democrats are on the warpath against Alexander court tests. How's that going to turn out? I've pretty good clue. Oh, we'll tell you tells we'll tell you where it's going, and we might have a lovely discussion about it. So we'll we will..
