"emma viglen" Discussed on The Majority Report with Sam Seder

"Federal government executes. Its first woman in seventy years the eleventh q. Shen performed since trump removed the moratorium in july this year and in india their court suspends the implementation of a widely protested set of farm laws. All this and more on. Today's program liaison obviously very historic Day coming after. Well i guess we are now out from. It's sort of shocking. Think that that was only a week ago from a historic and very disturbing attack on the capital. Joining me. you as always today. Emma viglen and emma one of the things that we are hearing more and more each day is there is increasing evidence that there was planning for this assault on the capitol building and that that planning was aided by republican lawmakers. These are this is a combination of video evidence. That's emerging of evidence that That i guess allegations made by democratic lawmakers. And sort of i guess circumstantial evidence that we will talk about including yana presley's office when they barricaded in that office the the. What is it. The the the panic buttons had been ripped out of the office right. They don't know when that happened or how it did but again it's all we're piecing all of these things together as you said. And the fbi was made aware of the potential islands in these protests the insurrectionists posting on the internet about how they were going in there as warriors and to take lives potentially contradicting the fbi's public claims. I mean shocking that the intelligence community might lie to the public. Yeah it's possible. They're lying impossible. They'd just like sir bureaucratic mess ups. I mean they are. But i imagine there's a certain amount of see why i mean. Clearly what happened is all up and down the chain of security at the very least there was just a sense of like oh just why trump supporters essentially and. They're you know they're not going to do any harm to anybody. And whereas of course the reaction to something like a blm protests or you know other types of protests are far more militarized if you will in security minded now would that said there are something like ten thousand national guards members who are essentially deploying to washington. Dc we people have seen the images of national guardsmen sleeping in the The capitol building getting rest. Because they're going to be on duty now for for days. Leading up to the inauguration there is a considerable concern that there could be other attacks Hi there in washington. Dc or other state capitals around the country. And we're waiting to hear on that. Meanwhile as we speak at twelve oh nine. pm In the capital we are en route to a vote to impeach the president and there are reportedly close to a half dozen right now republican congresspeople. Who will be voting with the democrats to impeach donald trump There could be more. There is already push back against Lynne cheney who Who is Been the most vocal member of the republican caucus to want to impeach trump. Now of course what we're seeing of course is a bunch of politics. There are republicans who are deciding many of them who if they were already considered to be never trumpers. This is their opportunity to sort of Distance themselves from a party which gave birth to donald trump which constructed an entire political project. That essentially made it impossible for anybody within a republican primary to beat donald trump and So this is part of their political calculation and I think it's really important that people are aware that evened there's reportedly and i love. I love the i think. I saw a headline from the new york times privately. Mitch mcconnell is happy with the impeachment now. My definition of privately involves it not being a headline in the new york times in other words. If you and i am a- and the folks at home know that mitch mcconnell privately is happy that there's an impeachment. I've got news for everybody. He wants it to be known publicly. And this is part of his his project to distance the republican party and himself from donald trump. it is very important that people maintain two thoughts in their mind. One that it's good. If we can get a conviction in the senate of donald trump before joe biden gets in office and some some credit or at least acknowledgement that mitch. Mcconnell you know needs to be involved in that process and if it happens has some responsibility and credit for that but also be aware that come on this is politics and mitch mcconnell. I don't know if there's a single person in the country who has been more enabling to donald trump than mitch. Mcconnell starting back in october of two thousand sixteen when he said to barack obama if you announced that there's interference by the russians in this election. I'm going to make you pay a political price for it. Well i don't think there's one person more evil than trump in this country that mitch mcconnell we're going to be real mccall's just smarter about it in more calculated i mean. There's there's a a number of things that could result from him. Clearly strategically leaking this to the new york. Times it's basically a trial balloon. He's trying to see how the public how the press react. But there is clearly value in the republicans distancing themselves themselves from trump at this point because his approval ratings have tanked by ten points in seven days since last since the attack on the capital rightfully. So i think it's a according to politico their lowest approval rating around thirty four percent that they have recorded for trump. he's always been kind of in the high thirties. Low forties at the start. People were giving him a chance. Maybe towards the fifty fifty range but this really tanked it and he was already tanking after he lost because he wouldn't give it up so he's toxic radioactive at this point he's talked clinically and i agree with you. I think Mitch mcconnell is out there and he is trying to get a sense of just how dangerous it will be four. His caucus members perhaps some of them anyways to vote and i mean politically dangerous to vote for a conviction in the senate and if he is trying to set up a test balloon to find out if he.

"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. .

"You like the young Turks podcast I think you'll love a lot of the podcasts on the network old school it's one of my the young Turks Jaeger inadequate sparing with you guys fun show head for you guys we got Democrats in the primary we got Donald Trump and the Republicans freaking out over impeachment we got them attacking a Lieutenant Colonel With the Purple Heart of course they never meant anything family values they never met balanced budgets they never meant small government any certainly didn't mean support the troops so we're GONNA bus up all night long with that let's get started I love it so we're GonNa get to all the Republican cents later in the show I wanNA start off with something that we had prepared for yesterday we didn't get to it it's at the top today let's do it she to leave she formally endorsed Bernie Sanders for president in Detroit over the weekend and our very own Emma viglen actually had an exclusive one on one interview with representative to leave let's watch I saw someone like people the judge he basically said that Medicare for all sanders warns reporting it it infringes on people's freedoms when you're going to a community like this were healthcare is certainly not guaranteed for your constituents how do you respond to a statement like that I can tell you our residents we're in the front lines of doing nothing looks like from the healthcare system to what's going on with our climate crisis and residents are not being easily slated to believe that that's what it's about they believe in this is something that you know that's why Medicare for all so important is they understand how inhumane our healthcare system is in this country the fact that people are dying because they're poor and that alone is enough for them to understand whatever P. and others are saying about this issue they're not believing they understand now what's happening in the for profit healthcare system is just killing people it shows just how disconnected they are with the majority of American people right now that don't have access to healthcare so before we comment on the substance of what Rasheed instantly pat to say there there was a lot of substance I want to tell you what Budaj said right before the last democratic debate Bush is just trying to focus on choice not infringing on people's freedom to me that decision voluntarily right so this is a common talking point that we hear from Corporate as Democrats individuals who have not rejected corporate talk money and are certainly influenced by the private healthcare industry. Don't be fooled by this myth of choice this is all just a way to protect the private insurance companies but I think she did a great job in answering that question it really does show you that there's a huge difference between progressives in the Democratic Party people like Rashid even members of the squad and the Corporate is Democrats like Buddha judge were much more concerned with protecting private industry well I loved it the way of immediately people would like to have a choice of whether they die from cancer or don't die from cancer you're going to take our freedom away from them by just making sure everyone has health care outrageous people would like to have the choice of bankrupting themselves for private insurance or not at all bankrupting themselves and being part of issues where's everyone that's not really that interesting choice so look there's a lot that I loved about what racine until he said it and this is why great ebbs strong progressives in in in Congress because unfortunately until this cavalry arrived was basically Bernie Sanders and I would argue Elizabeth warn holding down the fort by themselves so so in in she says my community is the frontlines of it looks like to do nothing exactly nobody ever says that nobody ever says that everybody's constantly including all the corporate media talking about would you any change Oh let me tell you all the terrible things about change my got it might cost a top five percent a little bit more money which by the way that is true in Medicare for all everyone in the autumn ninety five percent pay less that's a fact okay the top five percent do pay a little bit more so the corporate media flips other go by ooh nobody resent this is changing close well let's keep it real members of the corporate media there either refunded by his officials who were part of the top five percent or they're part of the top five percent themselves because of their very lucrative contracts on television and when you say that when she says that they said that's outrageous how can you tell people the facts are you accusing us of bias yes yes I am so let's just be clear about that so because one of the a massive biases is what congresswoman policing there. How about the cost of not doing anything the cost of not doing change right now Kerr only our healthcare system cost twice as much on average as all developed countries who all have single payer how about the cost of this insanely offensive system put on all of us how often have you heard Anderson Cooper say that how often have you heard anybody on? MSNBC that so-called while they don't mm pretend to be progressive anymore but that network that the mainstream media is like oh MSNBC's on the left right no one says it no one says it so that's why these just democratic congresswoman or so popular because they are actually fighting for everyone unlike any other the Corporate Democrats that just sit there and take the money by the people to judge you know he was for Medicare for all earlier in the year and then he started taking corporate money so let's talk about that a little bit because that's important because he took over a million dollars from the healthcare industry all of a sudden he's not for Medicare for all so he was asked previously well why did you I say that you would reject Corp Pac money and now you are reversing your decision on that and he was quoted as saying we're not going to be trump with pocket change so he is you know using this excuse of well if we got if we're going to beat trump we can't rely on our messaging we can't rely on policies that actually help people go ahead and rely on campaign donations so we can buy ads we can push out this message we really we wait Pete what pocket Change Bernie Sanders outraced Elizabeth Warren always a really good point so hey I guess we can't go with people who digest she got outraged he's got pocket change so by his own definition you should definitely not both from I'm not saying that people are just saying that he thinks I got pockets even though I went in a begged all the corporate donors and the million dollars I still couldn't keep up with a smaller dollar donations that warna centers have so I guess as I pocket change I'm a loser and you shouldn't vote for me and Buttigieg isn't the only one who reversed course when it came to taking corporate pack money unsurprisingly if you ask me a biden also reversed his course on that and over the weekend the New York Times ran a piece titled Biden campaign drops opposition to SUPERPAC support and if you pay close attention to Biden's message still as confusing as ever so it's not like there's been big change in his messaging ever since he reverse course but it is important to know that he'll promise one thing and then immediately changes might in part of the reason why is because his raising his.

"To skip school and take to the streets in order to demand more aggressive policy from lawmakers pertaining to climate change. I love this especially when you look at the demographics you see how young they are. according to The Washington Post in London thousands marched past ten Downing Street and the houses of parliament some holding aloft signs that read winter is not coming and I'm taking time out of my lessons to teach you. I love that Salt Martha Lichtman a thirteen year old Londoner clutched assign that red oceans are rising and so are we just seeing this type of activism from young people really fires me up we sent a John John Rolla and Emma Viglen to some of these demonstrations Emma's in New York. John is in Los Angeles. Let's start off with Emma in New York and see what some of these activists had had to say. It shouldn't have to take us all together screaming screaming for climate change for us that you know like we should be normal. I am eternally frustrated with the decisions that are lawmakers are making because it is putting us our lives our children's lives and our grandchildren sides at risk and they can't see that not because they're old and as a young person and we're all relatively young people we know and this is the one chance we have before we're gone planet is is dying and we are doing nothing to save it. We need to march just help. Say are all the adults are helping us with our future like going to college but there's no point. There's not going to be an earth to like stay at we gotta keep this earth otherwise. There's nothing to press to fight for. I Really WanNa have kids one day and I don't think morally ethically yeah I could bring a human into the world knowing that this is going to happen. I WanNa live past twenty-five on an earth as inhabitable and habitable. That's true yeah. Yeah wanner your down for living best twenty-five just a little bit destroy your planet. We Watch you invaded that world is changing and not in a good way we we need to save our world. I love this and I'm really curious to see how right wing media covers these demonstrations or if they even cover it at all because oftentimes when they do they try to make these activists look as though they have no idea what they're talking about. They just WanNa skip school but these are incredibly smart our kids and they know what's at stake and it's just so great to see them. I mean the numbers are insane. Yes absolutely and they have every reason in right to be upset because we all are thinking taking this as well in terms of well. Are we going to have kids like they're saying twenty. Fifty is the cutoff in terms of actual life and being able to survive and whether you know that or not is it right to you. Bring a child into this world. There are so many factors and things going on right now with the climate and the reality is it's not necessarily that they're just old in terms of the decision vision makers. It's a they're greedy and they're looking for ways to fill their coffers as opposed to ways to keep us all alive and having these young down here man I was on a playground are always hang now with my friends and I was a kid. These kids are out here trying to save us it. They should be able to live their lives with reality is they may not have anything to live for your right wing. We'll have the headline will say smart smart ass kids. Talk back or something right so you know it's it's IT'S I. I really hoping I got. I got young kids. I feel that Kiss my kids are way further advanced than I am and their thought process and I hope we can learn from them. the one thing that I'm a little worried about is I remember as a kid in the early eighties we were writing letters to President Reagan asking him to stop the nuclear race and it feels like we've come full full circle and you've got a guy now like trump who's like saying. Can we nuke storms and stuff. I mean it's crazy right or even like gun violence. I I did my college thesis on it. That was twenty years ago and here we are. We're still in the same situation if not worse and so I hope that what these kids are doing actually has an effect. I wish as a society we can maybe reframe our energies. My kids play a lot of sports which is good to play club sports but what about like instead of club soccer club climate change protesting or something. You know what I'm saying. What if every week activism class every week we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA go protest kind of cool and I wish I wish kids at a younger age could actually vote because I think then we might get some progressive things happening but unfortunately they can't well? I'm so glad you mentioned that because a lot of them are underage. They're not old enough to vote so that's a great point but there was a report. I was watching on TV. Where a reporter on the ground ask like how many of you here old enough to vote and a lot of people raise their hands and so people are fired up and I I hope that these are the types of issues that encourage people to go to the polls and vote for the right candidate who has the right plan in place now with that said John derulo hello went to the demonstrations in Los Angeles and spoke to some of those demonstrators about which candidate they felt was the best in helping to combat climate change. Take a look on the democratic side. We had that climate townhall. Some of them have plans. Who Do you trust on this issue. Obviously Trust Bernie. That's my answer. I trust them all to some degree less so with the more moderate Delaney and so forth but but and by whether it's a Democrat or Republican who gets in office next time. Please just address the issue. I've been following Bernie Sanders the last election so yeah. I'm still a Bernie Bernie. Any any of the others or is it. Is it Bernie all the way on this like Elizabeth Warren but I think definitely Bernie's and the if you look at the most recent debates that it was one of the biggest topics if not the biggest topic and pass the Bates probably in the past ten years anyone stand out. I mean I mean I just like the way that Bernie Sanders handles everything because he's very clear cut point. It's very simple language. It's not a lot of political HOOPLA so one of the reasons why John kept asking any other candidates is because he kept interviewing people who mentioned Bernie and he wanted in some diversity in the answers and had a tough time getting it so we didn't cut out interviews where people were endorsing other candidates is just he didn't run on like or come across people who wanted other candidates or mentioned other candidates. I should say was good that every one of them is on their agenda and it's again horrific when we see the trump say things like I'm the best for the environment. I love the environment. I'm GONNA roll back. The California regulations and he's bigger cars are better for the environment because then you're safer and if you get hit I mean the the stuff he puts out. There is totally nonsensical. So the good news is we have moved at least to the point where every candidate on the Democratic Democrat side knows that this is an issue that we have to prioritize actually kind of pathetic because every candidate will acknowledge it but in terms of action and and and a plan put forward to actually combat this I mean you have one candidate that has the most robust plan in place right and that that is Bernie any sanders with the green new deal and that's probably the reason why these activists mentioned him as the candidate they prefer and make sense you know in the population that comes is out there and it's more willing to speak up would be burned because as you mentioned he has the most robust plan the thing is it's like as you also mentioned the fact that somebody needs to do something and unfortunately finally. I find that the moderate candidates the candidates that are more aligned with corporations. That's the big problem we have. Here is trying to keep them happy. Keep the earth sustain. That's not how it's GonNa work. You need someone who's willing to check these corporations and stand up to them and that's Really Sanders are Warren. That's no one else and of course that's probably why large corporations. Sion's in mainstream media despise those two well. I want to move onto a different angle to the story because the activists of course are front and center. They're the most important but there were some great speeches by public figures and I want to share those with you so during the demonstrations in more than one hundred fifty countries trees to raise awareness and demand aggressive action against climate change there were some speech by individuals like Jane Fonda and Greta Tune Berg that I really think is important for you guys to here. I'm going to start off with Jane. Fonda she was in Los Angeles. Jinan Roller was there to report from the ground and here is a part of her speech. This is gonNA take an all out war on drilling on fracking deregulation racism says on an colonialism registered struggle yet. Everyone who fell registered beware of candidates in favour cautious interest moderate approach. It's too late for that. If we'd started thirty years ago when everybody who has the oil attractions new if we'd strident than it wouldn't have to be so radical but now our house is on fire as gratitude Burg says and we have to act accordingly and vote for candidates who understand why the scope of the green new deal is required so one of our producers was there with John. said that her speech was so powerful powerful that it brought tears to rise so. I love seeing people who look. I'm not saying this to insult her her age but I love seeing older. Wealthy people get involved in this fight and it's genuine. It's sincere it's not it's not due to political motivation. She's not running for president as an end. She's not doing this for political gain. She's doing it because she cares and hopefully it whips other people into shape so they realize hey. This is a serious issue. She's always been in politically active. There was a great documentary. Hbo About Her so I I would hope people will watch it. It's I think it's a four part series and you realize even at the at the top of her fame fame. She was putting it on the line. Kinda like Mohammed. Ali Has An and Colin Kaepernick. Now you know there are some people who at the top of their game are willing to speak out and I have utmost respect for those people because I feel like what's the point of having fame or being an artist. If you're not saying anything like Shaleen Woodley. She was arrested at standing rock because she felt that it was important to take part in those demonstrations like I have so much respect for her. She I was in custody as a result of her political activism so I have a lot of admiration for people who do that absolutely Jane Fonda something I can definitely speak to being a part of the women's media center you know she's one of the founding partner Swith Gloria Steinem and also Robin Morgan that focuses on elevating the voice of Women in media again at her rages. Someone who's been in the game for a long time and has made you know considerable well. She could quit that stuff. She doesn't have to raise awareness issues that are important her but she's out there in. La in the heat yelling at the top of her lungs getting done and it's a beautiful thing because she's using her voice to draw attention to issues that need to be Broughton attention to she is using her privilege and she is executing beautifully and that's something we should all be grateful for It's just it's incredible. Well one other incredible aspect active. This was gratitude speech. She spoke in New York and we're GONNA show. You snippets that. Take a look. We have not taken to the streets sacrificing pricing our education for the adults and politicians to take selfish with us and tales that they really really admire what we do. We doing this to wake the lead us up. We are doing this to get them to act. We deserve a safe future dimond a safe future. Is that really too much to ask right now. We are the ones who are making a difference. If no one else will take action then we will. Oh God it's me emotional. It's it's incredible and you know there's a lot of downsides sides to the Internet. I know firsthand but one of the best parts of it is that there are no gatekeepers of information right so so young people are so much more informed these days because they have all the information at their fingertips and think about how much Education Public Education Against St refunded how much it gets muzzled because of you know political parties who don't want teachers to teach kids about the reality of what's really going on or even the reality -ality of American history to know that that information is out there. It's democratized and people can really inform themselves about the reality of our environment about our politics or history is so so important I love watching that it was gave me chills down my spine. Yeah and I do hope like you were saying I mean the hope. Is that the that there. Are people seeing this that could they could see that there. Is this this movement. I mean obviously we keep. It feels like they keep denying it right. If if they are on the side of the corporations there on the on the right they keep denying it and they keep saying no you know they're saying these kids don't with talking about or what have you but but I don't know what it takes. I don't know how many people it takes to be in the streets for them to finally do something but you know here's what I think makes a difference applying political pressure in the form of primary primary candidates. Who am I say primary because we don't have time for week. Democrats right so I know that some of these activists are too young to vote however if you do have the ability to vote support a primary candidate who wants to do something or pass aggressive legislation to combat climate change ensure that far too often incumbents get re elected because people aren't paying attention. We have a lot more political capital than we even realize realize and and it's time that we flex that muscle and hold people accountable yeah all right so let's take a break when we come back..

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.

"It's in the show him in the show. It isn't the show. You all right? But let's start with you. Yes. Joe Biden cannot stop himself from talking about how reasonable he thinks the Republican party is and how he thinks simply electing Trump out of office will somehow lead to a fantasy world of bipartisanship. The latest example was during a speech in front of lobbyists and donors in Washington. He said the following with Trump gone, you're going to begin to see things change because these people in congress, no better. They know this isn't what they're supposed to be doing. Meaning talking tale doing everything that Donald Trump wants to do. Right. He also says the thing that will fundamentally change things is with Donald Trump out of the White House, not a joke. It's already beginning in the house. Now you've seen people that, in fact, we're not willing to vote for any democratic initiative, even if they agreed with it, because they didn't want to be the odd person out if it wasn't going to happen. I got I got news for you. Joe? Oh, biden. You're in the Obama presidency you were in that administration. They were never willing to play ball with you never willing to play ball. It's not the nineteen nineties, what are we doing because he keeps saying over and over again the second quarter it was from may, I hold is from right now. And so he learns nothing and he got criticized the first time around didn't matter and people keep in mainstream media keep calling it a stumble. These are not stumbles, whether it's the Hyde amendment position that he had, or this, it's Joe Biden is he in fact, if anything has the finest career put aside being conservative, or progressive, or moderate, or any of those labels is a Joe Biden is super proud of reaching out across the aisle and doing bipartisanship, and he would brag about back in the days. Look, there's a whole spectrum throughout all these years. So for a while in the nineteen eighties nineties, there was some degree of bipartisan. Shipped. I did get you, some okay results. Those are hard to find, but there are some examples of it, and so it's not all bad at all times. But Biden would also talk about how proud of you was to work, even earlier with people like Strom Thurmond, who is a segregation, who ran for president of the segregationists. They get wonder separate out, white people and black people. Now shrubs urban was not very reformed. Let's put it that way. He was a extreme right? Winger. Just recently Emma Viglen are big, Linda, TYP politics. And now rebel headquarters unveiled a video she found a video, and then spread like wildfire throughout the rest of the media, Jill Biden, talking about how great Dick Cheney was, and how he built up the powers of the vice presidency within which then by us. And so, and so you had terrible times of working with the Republicans. Okay times of working with Republicans. And now we're back to absolutely horrible times, where the Republicans are never ever going to work with you. Unless you do it all on their terms. And so it just fundamentally misunderstands politics to think that Joe Biden can just whisper in their ears and hold them really tight, and then Mitch McConnell, like, all right. Why don't we help the American people? If that's what you think you don't understand politics at all. And it's a core meltdown. And you shouldn't look, I'm not I'm not going to vote for anybody who thinks. Oh my God. Mitch McConnell and I'm going to work wonders together. And he's going to come towards me. He's not that means you're going to go towards him. So I can just quickly mention one bipartisan effort that happened in the nineteen ninety s wasn't it welfare, reform where essentially Bill Clinton conceded, to Republicans, quite a bit when it came to the issue, or topic of welfare? No, that's true. And so, look, I think that, that one was a little bit more of a mixed bag but to be fair to them and, and a lot of progressives things back at all that it was terrible. I have a slightly different take on that. Sam wants to beta that. So interesting topic, but they did for example, get rid of the deficit..

I love it, by the way, we're going to do it again. We're going to do it in Miami, so more details about that. Coming up later this week. So this time, oh, by the way. People wanted you to come. So. We got to give people what they want. Jank. Are you going to sign the pledge to have Atika spirit? Are you going to sign it? The second pledge came up with that one so Emma Viglen will definitely be there. We'll talk more about it because we didn't do the planning throughout the week. But if you can the it's be around the debates. It's June twenty six and twenty seven. So you already know the dates, okay? We're going to go down there and show up in force again, so that the reporters keep going who are these guys. And what do they want, which is exactly what kind of the point by the way, tomorrow, right after the young Turks? Don't miss. Cuomo primetime because I'm going to go back. I'll CNN again with Chris Cuomo that's tomorrow night, and we're rocking and rolling. Okay. Now speaking, well this one more story from yesterday for you guys. So yesterday were Cedar Rapids, Iowa were nineteen. Presidential candidates were and one of them was Michael Bennet. He's Senator from Colorado, and he was in a gaggle of reporters in. We're asking them questions I jumped in to ask a couple of myself, obviously, we're just including the ones here. That I asked but many of the reporters asked other questions as well. So first one is about campaign finance reform. Let's watch center Bennett, would you be in favor of ending private financing of elections? Would I be in favor of ending? If we could figure out some other system, I think the system we have now but the worst possible. I think what, what I'm really focused on, is what we're gonna do to overturn to this and United what we're going to do to create more disclosure of our of financial of, of, of our campaign system, which I think are important, first steps as long as Mitch McConnell is in the role that he's in. He will do absolutely everything. He can to kill campaign finance reform. So I think this is ninety percent of the American people flick. There's too much money in our politics..

"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..

"Because you know, why you wanted over because Heitkamp doesn't fight for you. If she fought for you, then you'd be rooting around. And you'd be hoping that she wins. And you'd bring everybody to the polls. Instead Heitkamp says other Republicans are largely right, but I'm not so bad either. That's she's getting beat. I think by sixteen points, so cheeses, man, they never learned. Anyway, let's go over here. We sent our reporter Emma Viglen to a Trump rally to ask a simple question. You say you're for the constitution. But Donald Trump says he's going to take away birthright citizenship clearly in the constitution. So how do you explain that? Let's find out I agree with Trump wholeheartedly even though it's part of the constitution. Constitution constitutions couple of three hundred years old. So it's time to change things. That's why I'm not the second amendment though, never the second. And then then we have right to defend ourselves. Look it's a couple of three hundred years old. That's nothing wrong with that. Okay. So, but my amusement, of course, is Senator around the coast to the most important thing. Almost everybody at the rally constitution cost to right, but Trump wants to change the constitution. Yeah. That's awesome. We should change the cost to Shen. How about the second amendment? Oh, no, no, don't change the constitution. By the way. It is. Okay. It's perfectly acceptable to say. Yes, something's should be amended resemble we should get money out of all takes. But just think about it for a second have a principal of an ideology, are you pro-constitution? And by the way, that doesn't mean you're against the Mets. I'm massively pro-constitution. I think sushi is wonderful. But part of our constitution is amendments. That's the whole point. They founded brothers said you should change a cow suture from time now that would be a normal acceptable answer. Not do we never change it. I mean, you'll keep changing, but don't change it. Here's more of that. Absolutely should be done. It was designed for when slavers when the time slavery came in. And it was designed for those people. So it'd be for their kids wasn't as iron for this. It's retarded. So we definitely need to change it. The better ways to do through congress does to executive order could be undone. So it's better to try to through congress. But absolutely you want to change the constitution which conservatives like to say they're strict constitutionalists too. But it was not written to do this. No, actually, it was written to do this. That's why it's in the custody. Anyone who's born here is a citizen and the writing is incredibly clear read the fourteenth amendment. And and of course, as usually have the facts completely wrong executive orders. That is good. You congress should do it. No, Bill could not change the constitution. Either. Only in amendment could if he clarified the two-thirds of congress should proposed amendment or two thirds of the states should do convention to propose an amendment and then three quarters of state should ratify. Okay. But no, you cannot change the kind of sushi through an executive order or through a Bill through congress. I don't know is too much to ask. Okay. May maybe you don't know all the particulars of that that's fine or random dude show up at a rally, but don't pretend that you're huge fan of the constitution. And think that it should be changed in a way that is unconstitutional. Both the substances unconstitutional and the process he suggests that is also unconstitutional and remember when the Republicans complained that Obama did too many executive orders, let's note that irony as well. One more there's a portion of the constitution that says depending on the legality, and that's what his lawyer said he can do 'cause we're ritualised we believe in no intent of the constitution. You have to follow it. It was held in eighteen ninety eight and the supreme court decision for Chinese immigrant coming over. They said, yes, you can keep your children here. Even if you weren't here legally 1898. Yes court decision. They didn't I see what was going on today back then. I mean, they didn't know so many Latinos are coming, and then they would have voted against obviously. Okay. No..

"About the news. We're enthusiastic about being progressive and recently, a reporter called me part of the fighting left. I said. I liked the sound of that. So now in today's show, I also other news for you guys, including. Donald Trump pretty much admitting that he lies. I'm gonna show you then his explanation of why he lies and then Fox News defense, and how the media should just bow their heads reported as if it's true. That's also a little bit later in the program. But unfortunately. We start with a fairly common theme. These days in the Republican party, which is fear loathing. So they have been driving hatred in so many different ways, and it used to be predominantly Muslim Mexicans Eminem's as they have been doing that for over a decade. It's not just Donald Trump Republican party has done that for almost literally as long as I can remember, well, certainly as long as I've been covering politics. And I remember writing an article about the Eminem's. About a dozen years ago. But now they've added to the repertoire, and the reality is, of course, they always wanted to in a lot of their voters. Also, did not like other people. And so their disdain for African Americans in this country is legendary they literally had a strategy call the southern strategy around. And now we have gotten to the bottom of the barrel with anti semitism. So let's start there. And then we'll take it from there. Unfortunately, as they seem to be attacking almost every group literally in this show, we have a Republican attack against Jews against Latinos and against blacks. So the Muslims are starting to feel a little left out. But they're not in the news today. All right. Let's go your start with the first story. Okay. So the Republicans have been on a warpath against many different minorities. Unfortunately, the latest is Jewish Americans. And there was extreme right winger who did the attack in Pittsburgh killed eleven people at a Jewish synagogue six others injured, and I want to tell you about what Republican politician is doing. But before we do that we said Emma Viglen, our reporter to cover a Trump rally down in Florida. And I thought that this gentleman this year in into was, unfortunately, emblematic of a lot of the right wing these days. Now, get a load of what you see tattooed on his back. Let's watch..

"Or motor vehicle equipped is traveling living? Why would you even put that up? One thing said though, also a train of pack animals. She's disgusting. She really is. She's a terrible person period. She really is a terrible person. You you, you adopted children from Guatemala. What is wrong with you? What is wrong with you? And they're going to grow up to live in a society where you have riled up people against that region you up and see the things you said about there. Country of origin. Okay. That you think people coming from that country are nothing more than animals. Like how disgusting is that? Okay, moving on. Because I, this type of propaganda unfortunately does work with some people and nothing made that clearer than what Emma Viglen experience when she went to a Trump rally in Arizona recently. So I'm going to skip ahead to video three and she spoke to a number of Trump's supporters, but one Trump voter stood out the most, and here's what he believes should be done with migrants as they attempt to cross the border, what would sell the whole thing into border? They just start shooting only shoot a Cup and they would go, you think deterrence would work if they would shoot. So a lot of these people are fleeing horrific political situations themselves and seeking asylum, you still think that we should shoot Daewoo if they just sat at a few times, they would go back. I am a hidden a good point there. She was saying, fleeing political violence, and you know, my mother came from Salvador and she was undocumented in when asked her her case, then started reading studies. I found that it was not uncommon that many of these folks are actual refugees, I think, and not just seeking, you know, necessarily better life, but literally seeking not to die from a war zone. So in my mother's case, she was fleeing the civil war there, which the US had played a role in. And so now today, when we look at the migrants, many of them are not from Mexico. They're from Honduras where you know our government unfortunately also had a negative role after the coup in other in other countries like that. So I think we need to consider, you know this kind of a context like, why are they coming here? It's not necessarily two one invade, but just to survive. So the right wing all the time, we'll take what you said and say, well, you see that it's sort of blaming them. They're blaming us for the problems, but why do you want to blame them? They're, they're poor people who are running from violence and poverty. Even if it was just poverty and not the violence. Like what? What joy do you get out of blaming those poor people were looking for a better life for themselves and their kids. And and I guess if you wanna be ignorant, that's your call, but did we help to start a civil war in l. Salvador? Yes, we most definitely did. It's not in dispute. Did our has our war on drugs created monstrous gangs in Latin America. Yes, of course. They have every time we knew prohibition. It creates gangs like alka pondering the prohibition of beer and now MS thirteen. Another gangs in the prohibition of marijuana and those policy heaven affect? Yes. Now, if you'd like to be stupid and I'm keeping a real with you and he said, no me, no Brown people are bad. We good. I don't care about history. I don't care about consequences. I don't care about policy. Well, I can't help you because we don't speak the same language. I speak policy and facts and consequences. And you speak stupid. But the look. I think that there is a lot of ignorance. Right? And there's ignorance across the board regardless of what your political ideology is. Because what we just discussed very briefly right now is something that most Americans don't know about because our media doesn't talk about it. They always address the symptoms of a larger problem..

Are you familiar with the Republican party push a bad person for such a high office? I think you're being sarcastic because pretty sure that they already did that for the presidency Democrats. If someone came forward with allegations that. Democratic supreme court pick littered one year, like gun guy. Conversation. It's over that person's gone. I mean, they are you that, hey, these women are Democrats, and so they're not to be trusted. The first person that came out with allegations against Al Franken, worked at a conservative talk show. Again, it's always projection right anyway. WVU Libby seventy-one rights and in the member station. I'm so sick of hearing seventy two year old man say unfair over and over again like a five year old here here totally with you on that. Libby math mass seventy. One says when did not being on the supreme court means someone's life was ruined. Okay. Fair point. And then Tisch. ACP writes in is that twelve point advantage for progressive women too, because we've got several strong ones running in November. No, the twelve point advantage is generic democrat versus generic Republican, who do you want to control congress? So it it is not based on particular congressional seats nor the ass based on males or females, or it's just generic democrat Republican, but does that translate over to women? I who are candidates in my experience in the primaries more so yes. So for example, as I sell those numbers, Kevin Yoder in the Kansas third district running in St. David's. China gone gone. So those female candidates are getting even more female voters to turn out. So let's see what happens. This Forty-five, our little less than forty five days left, but I think they're in a world trouble. All right, and it was all right. How do Trump voters feel about the allegations against supreme court? Nominee, Brad Kavanagh? Well, Emma Viglen. One of our reporters went to a Trump rally in Springfield, Missouri to speak to the voters, and we're going to hear from them in just a minute, but before we do so the conservative media has gone out of its way to smear the accusers, and there are two as of now we have Dr Christine Blasi Ford who initially had the allegations against Brett Cavanaugh groping her without her consent and allegedly attempting to rape her when they were both in high school. And then later a Yale student who was a freshman at the time, accuses breath Cavanaugh of pulling his pants down and thrusting his penis toward her face. Now, Steve, Crowder is. A gross Verson. I mean, that's my bias against him, but you don't need to believe me. You can see for yourselves. Here's the way he covered the bread Cavanaugh allegations and how he referred to Dr Blasi Ford still talking about the alleged attempted rape accusation, Dr Christine, by the way, no longer going to be calling. Dr. Christine, Christine. Christie, Christie food you. Christie, let me just say this. Of course it's possible, but the accusations here could be accurate. Right? And we're not saying that all accusations of attempted rape or false. You have to balance the scales of Justice between as an attempted rape, some thirty, something years ago that someone doesn't know when that happened. While you stopped mid rape, possibly drunk and passed out. We're going to present the evidence to you and you decide, yes. By the way. I know you're saying just me no one else in the I labeled her lying hor without proof granted sheet at the same. But with attempted rape. Pissed. Okay. So we called her allying hor and he also accused her of calling someone rapist with no evidence. She did not call anyone a rapist. She accused attempted rape, those were allegations. But more importantly, there was evidence..

"And this was a political trick all along. But this fact pattern doesn't seem to match that right again, there should be the FBI involved in this. They should look into it and trying to figure out whether or not there's any corroborating evidence whether or not any of these allegations are true. It's ridiculous that it's now up to people in the media to do the investigation and figure out what the truth is by the way. One other thing I wanted to bring up last week, we played a video featuring Senator maisy Hirono and she had asked Brad Kavanagh. Have you ever been. Accused of, I don't remember the exact wording, but she asked if he ever. Was accused of sexual assault as an adult, and I thought that was weird wording, right? And now I'm realizing, oh, it probably had to do with these allegations because remember these allegations are from when he was a freshman at Yale when he was an adult, the allegations that Dr Blasi brought forward happened when they were in high school when he was seventeen. And so who knows? You know, like what's happening behind the scenes. You're right. It does seem like Democrats are on a fishing expedition trying to find more accusers, but nonetheless I don't want to. I don't want this to be a guessing game. I want this to be something that's looked into by nonpartisan professionals. Exact question was, have you committed any verbal or physical harassment or assault of a sexual nature? And that was in context of what he was an adult. And so the yield incident, he would have been an adult and. And his certainly would've qualified as that. And he said, no, I, that he had not. So one super last thing on this is that. Look Kavanagh's now been caught saying several things didn't prove to be true. So it's that context is also relevant. And so now in the context of a guy who's swearing up and down the certain things or the case, and it turns out they're not the case. Now you have this situation. Well, it makes him less credible. And obviously every new accuser makes them even less credible and both sides know that. And hence why the Democrats want to see if there are more accusers and now Michael Ani's talking about he has another one or and, and I'm sorry, ended Republicans think we gotta get this thing right now so that there are no more accusers and he's on the court. I don't care if he did it or didn't do it which ways e-voting voting with corporations. He's voting against over weight. He's in, he's in, go, go, go. And that appears to be the case, except for one caveat, unless they think it's going to cost them the election because the most, the thing that the any. Titian cares most about is their own seat. And so that's the calculations being played out this week and actually one super-duper last thing is that in the post game today, I wanna talk about the context of Georgetown prep where cavenaugh Cam from and how they would apparently target one woman at a time and try to get them intoxicated. And you know they called there in the thing that they can cocktail was jungled USA cetera. When I wanna talk about that even separate from this story, obviously it's related to this story, but that concept of guys trying to do that. It's just merits further discussion. Let's do it in the post game. You get that by being a member of TY t. dot com slash join. Okay. So let's take a quick break. When we come back, we will discuss reaction to the story by both Trump officials Trump himself included and also Trump's base Emma Viglen was at a Trump rally in Springfield. Missouri at Lincoln is the only Abba takes thousands of best-selling nonfiction books, and there's still some down to their most impactful elements. So you could read or listen to them in under fifteen minutes..

"Not with Trump, and so one possibility is he's just a buffoon, right? The other possibility is he didn't wanna tell us director of national intelligence what he talked about his way to ensure that that conversation was as private as possible. There was only one other person in the room and that was the interpreter, the translator, and that's it. So Trump didn't want to have a conversation about whatever it was that he discussed with Putin look in any other circumstance than someone might be able to say, okay, yeah, Trump's a buffoon or the president is a buffoon, but you can't buy that in the context of this whole Russia debacle with Trump. And last thing is we want. Her to show you that clip from earlier when coach talked about that because you would think aren't look. That was a little closer to Helsinki when he said that I saw it on CNN there, right? Even then it's egregious and unbelievable. And then he said it in public that the Trump wouldn't tell them what was in the meeting. So that's amazing. But since then Trump has had plenty of time to call him in and go, hey, hey, hey, coach, what are you talking about? Here's what happened in the meeting. Stop saying that stuff in public. That looks bad. It looks weird, right? So that's why I'm emphasizing today. He's still said, quote, I'm not in a position to either fully understand fully or talk about what happened in Helsinki. It's one thing to say. I can't comment on that. I'm director, I, that's Intel, you know, intelligence and I can't talk to you about it, but I'm not in a position to understand it. Now there's something super weird going on and it and it might be looking out were this is speculation, but that they have intelligence about Trump that is not yet public. And so they want to go and have a press conference and say, we're gonna do our jobs. Everybody be cool. And right now, the president is not telling us what he did with the Russians. I don't know. I don't know. We'll look. We shared the facts with you. I shared my analysis of of having seen a lot of these press conferences was seemed a little off to me. And then the rest is, of course, just conjecture and but probably we'll find out. I don't know whether it's soon, but we'll find out at some point. Yeah. Okay. We have to take a quick break. When we come back, we have incredible stories including some more reporting from Emma Viglen videos are incredible. You don't wanna miss it. In back on the young Turks, bunch of fun tweets here. Eric Rooney writes in first time this morning in months watching t. IT live. I forgot how goofy you guys are in parentheses in a good way. Okay. I miss those days. I miss those days where we could do a ton of goofy stories because we weren't, ironically goofy president has led to disastrous stories. Right. But I'm glad that you didn't think afterwards. That guys doing. I wish we could reach out to him and be like, how are you how you doing. Mental friend we had given him the nickname epic mountain man. Yes, but. Oh, could you imagine if we had resources, I'd go my God. If we had TV resources, we would have so much fun now I wanna get. Nobody would. No, no, no, no, no, no, we would. We would. We'd get because those guys have block money coming out like they can do anything they want, and they just sit there and do nothing instead anyway, bring epic mountain man together with Denver Riggleman after he loses the election, can have them talk Bigfoot back and forth house that it'd be as big idea. Big foot, big ideas. You know what they say about people with big, feed their big ideas. Okay. Sasha Ray writes in damn Antica spirit with the win. You're not ready for this yeti. Let's epic. All right. Great. And Finally, Mr manager says whatever happened to the lizard Cam during the commercial break lamb seen marijuana in a while, is she slash she? Okay. Does she slash? He need help. I don't know what the marijuana is either by the way I don't either and it's skin transitions all the time. That's the whole thing..

"We believe in the rule of law, whereas you turn around and go and FBI be, I. law enforcement now, no. Trump's above the law, don't apply any of the law. Ango on and on fourth amendment, I amendment all the things that we fight for due process treat every citizen equally. Those are liberal positions. By the way, the founding fathers were liberals radicals who did a revolution against the conservative establishment. I know that will blow your mind, but that's our flag and we don't hate it in your actions and supporting that. Thor, -tarian leader and all the different violations of the constitution. He's done. What you don't realize is that you're actually arguing guest America. You should take that hat off. So I also want to address the very first part that video where he talks about Muslims coming into the country coming into the United States to kill Americans. So look there was and it seems as though it's died down quite a bit. Luckily a huge issue of ISIS carrying out horrible acts of terrorism in European countries. And that was genuinely a concern that people in America. Had people in these European countries had. And so that's something that was taken seriously. And luckily it seems as though you know, the war on ISIS has been successful and it's ongoing now put that aside though and talk about what the United States has done, because what he is alleging that Muslims have done to Americans is exactly what the US government has done in Muslim-majority countries all to make our weapons manufacturers and private military contractors stupendous Leah wealthy right? And I'm not talking about going after ISIS fighters. I'm talking about drone strikes that have taken out entire civilian families at weddings. I'm talking about people warning the loss of those family members and then also being met with drone strikes. Those are real things that have happened abroad, right? So it's just it's projection by the right wing government. That is what we do it Muslim-majority countries and by the way Republican presidents of. And democratic presidents have done it. We are honest and fair about that covers the last thing on this. Luke had there been Muslim attacks inside American, including Florida. Yes. But if you're really concerned about your safety, you'd because certain about the great majority of attacks in America which are by white right wing radicals. So that's an absolute fact. That is a fact that the government puts out including, yes, the Trump administration, the majority of taxes. Two thousand one have been by right wing terrorists in this country, so, but you don't. You never hear that propaganda. So he thinks, oh my God, it's the Muslims coming in your far more likely to be shot by a fellow right-winger. And in fact, when you just put aside terrorism and you tell you, but that's about terrorism. What I told you if you get past that and you heard about what your chance of actually getting shot, are you kidding me? So nine eleven was disaster an epic failure, not just by the administration, but for this country, and we lost nearly three thousand people. Every year we lose thirty thousand people to gun violence, thirty ten, nine eleven's every single year, but I bet you that if you ask that guy, oh, guns are awesome. What I really have to worry about is a Muslim. I never ever met. All right. We have more. So let's take a look. It's great. Runs fantas if he thinks he's good, then he must be good. These bright with everything else. Are you willing to take his word for it? Whoever Trump says to vote for you, vote for I do anything. He says I, he hasn't. Everything he says is true comes true. Yes. So I wanted to clarify something. Obviously, that video was not by Emma Viglen. That was an MSNBC video, but the reason why I wanted to share that with you is because it gives you yet another example of this amazing loyalty that people have for him regardless of how his policies have negatively impacted them. And I'll give you an example of a policy. These tax cuts just I don't know. Maybe she's a multimillionaire. Maybe she's a billionaire. I have no idea, but I'm guessing that it's unlikely and if it is likely she did not benefit from those tax cuts. In fact, it will hurt her quite a bit. It's going to defend all sorts of programs that I think people take for granted and I'm not talking about welfare programs. I've talk..

"See that makes me think, well, maybe metaphor does have something on you, and that's why you're in a panic over this. Otherwise. Why would you even care? Exactly, yeah. So he's worried about a potential plea deal. He's worried about Manafort handing over some incriminating evidence against Trump. But for the purposes of this trial, this is not about Trump. This is not about Russian collusion. This is all about what Manafort did and the mounting evidence regarding his Ford agent activity makes things look really bad for him. And he clearly worked for the Ukrainian government at a time when they were again on the pro Russian side, not not the current Ukrainian government, and he did not register as a foreign agent. So he's going to be in a world of trouble about that as well later, right? So I think this absolutely clear cut case and. And maybe what if you told me prosecutors telling me, hey, Manafort did collude with the pro Russian guys, but, but he but not in the case of Donald Trump. I believe that that's perfectly plausible thing to do. But the Trump's reaction does make me think, well, if you were going to collude with the Russians, Manafort already has deep ties to them. And why Trump panicked. Maybe that's why you spent it because it was in. They didn't pick Manafort out of thin air righty. It Trump could have picked anyone out of three hundred thirty million people in the country. He wound up picking the guy who was a foreign agent for Russian appro. Russian forces might have just been a coincidence, and by the way, you really might be a coincidence. But it appears from Trump's reaction that perhaps it's not a question, it's exactly all right. We gotta take a quick break when we come back my favorite part of the show today. Emma Viglen goes to a rally where Trump speaks, talks, you Trump supporters and you do not want to miss it..

We gotta TYP investigative story on Ben Shapiro in his funding. Drew roms. Okay, that's coming up later in the program. So you're not gonna win, wanna miss any part of that. And then amazing stories today, all across every part of today's amazing Trump implicates himself and basically commits a crime within a tweet. Congratulations to him. We'll get to that pretty soon. And then Cunanan has has been outed. So this in sane conspiracy theory actually is a group of conspiracy theories. They the right way is become so unhinged that they're making me look up whether Tom Hanks's Jewish. Right? Because they have a series of anti semitic conspiracy theories have all sorts of conspiracy, right? And then one thing, no, I know. And then they also attacked Stephen Spielberg and Tom Hanks says, well, we'll get to it later in the program. I don't want to repeat it two of them because totally wrong and not true and unbelievably defamatory, etc. So it's a weight is Tom Hanks Jewish scheduling. He was Jewish. Now these guys are going to make me look it up. Anyway. Turns out if you're. His parents were Catholic and Mormon, and he largely grew up evangelical fascinating. So anyway, so all that stuff's a little bit later in the program whole, by the way, another story about us. We're in the news a lot. I love it. So now the daily caller the daily caller has just made up a story about us. Totally not true. Every quarter, but like I kind of wish it were. I know they reported is something terrible would in reality. It's not terrible at all, and we kind of wish it was happening. But yeah, but but Washington drives me crazy because people from this. Website daily caller, which is ball stuff all the time. As a matter. Of course, they have promoted in the mainstream media all the time. I remember like once there was a reporter who was on a list serve of of progressives, and I think he, I don't even think he was a progressive and they're like, is it okay that he works for the Washington Post? Oh, my God. One report has been found to be maybe potentially progressive. Meanwhile, they're like daily caller. You make up stuff all the time. Let's think you're insane right wing reporters and make them saying n reporters, no issue at all. Okay. Anyway. So lots of stories for you guys as well as you can tell. But I also want to say, I know we've got a lot. In other exciting announcement, we have just launched launched. Why d- Android up..
