"Feel free to get me off. You sound great. But I was just wondering, there's a selection committee not work weekends. Things like the major selections, Friday and time to make happy hour. Yeah, you know, I think Feinstein said that some of the leave early, I don't know about that, but there's a caliper he said this the other day. He disagrees with the SEC having the game on Sunday. But that's done for a lot of reasons. Television being the main one. And but I think people miss the point of this. And you understand it, I think grandpa, the committee looks at the body of work, starting from November on. They don't just look at the last game. Yeah, I think they should have their selection show a month to take into account the Sunday conference. Games. But now grandpa when you have the play in games on Tuesday, you can't do that. So no matter when you do it, someone is going to complain. What we're really talking about though is, and it's not the 68th best team or 69th because that's not true. Texas a and M would have been probably an 11 or 12 seed. So we're talking about the top 48 schools in the country, some would argue if you're not good enough to make the top 48 quit crying. In this case, Texas a and M got screwed. So there's no there's not much kidding around it. Mitch is up next in South Carolina. Paul, how's it going? Mitch. At the little bracket thing would be a head to head. Purple jousting at each other. Well, that's to come. We're still in the first round, Mitch. So we, you know, we really don't have time to do 32 run offs. We'll get to some of that as we get a little bit deeper into the tournament. You know who I'd like to hear go at each other. Who's that? Auggie and Jeff from Columbus. That could be good. Jeff is question argues credentials. I've heard hoggy question Jeff knowledge sometimes. I think we hear Jim we hear everybody like legend, I want to hear somebody go at it if we haven't heard. Well, that will come, Mitch. Who would you pick to win it all right now? So when it all yeah, I didn't mean to throw your curveball there, Mitch. Well, I mean, are they going to be verbal jousting? Yes, I think so. Of course. Mitch, there can be real jousting. Well, you can't understand Jim. And legend is pretty fast on his feet. Yeah, right now, I would say the worst blood on the show. And that's saying something is Jim as Jim and legend. When you think, are they an opposite divisions guys or not? They're living the same. Yeah, I mean, the field is projected to have a gym Iman contest, but that'd be boring to say..

"And I understand why he'd want that wise players would want that. They can't play defense. You don't win championships if you can't play defense. Now I will throw in just as a caveat there. I said a lot of those same things about the team in 2015. And they ended up going on to win. But they weren't under the pressure that this team is under because it's last team. But I think there are teams that are seeded four or 5, 6 that can make deep runs in this tournament. It wouldn't shock me. If none of the number ones got to the final four, but it would surprise me if Gonzaga didn't. Always, great conversation, John Feinstein. Formally of The Wall Street Journal, now currently briefly. Contributing to The Washington Post. Would you have been contributing off and out of that paper for as long as I know you? I've actually been with them, Paul for 38 of the last 45 45 years. Is it 45? No, 44 years. I hate to admit it. But yeah, I've been with them for a long time. The only times I weren't with them was when I was with Sports Illustrated. And when I was with the ill fated national. Yeah, a lot of people got rich quickly on the national. John would have broken Watergate had he been old enough and had he been on the staff at the time. And if I was as good as Bob Woodward, which I'm not. But you're close. John, it's always a pleasure. Thanks so much for making time. Paul, thanks for having me. I always appreciate it. Always a joy to talk to John Feinstein. Never sparing anyone. That's why we love him so much..

"I mean, who's going to tell you it's a good question because you can't get your conventional up and up and coming coach because you could get lost in the shuffle. So you either take someone who has a personal investment in wanting to be there or you get let's be honest somebody who's who's been fired somewhere else. Who may be a big name, but has nothing to lose because you're not going to go get Brian Kelly from Notre-Dame. I realize he's a football coach. But we're going to get, you know, the big names like drew from Baylor and I will go in there. Why would they want to come now and sit here for three or four years? Yeah, because in basketball, if you can't compete in the NCAA tournament, you're worthless. Yeah, that's why we play. Yeah, especially in an era where you have it's changing by the day, but there's still a lot of players are going someplace for one year and you're not going to LA shoe if you're out of the tournament. Yeah, they were already losing guys. We've already had a couple of recruits that we signed this dropping out. You know there's going to be some more of them and who's going to want to come know when this dark cloud hang in there and everything. It's a very big problem. You're absolutely right. Hey, thank you for the call. Great to hear from you. And one of those guys who was defending will wade to the end is Louisiana Dan, you there? Hey. I remember, I remember all the times you were defending will white. You still defending him? The last time I called you, what did I say? Well, Dan, I honestly, I can't remember. It's been so long. It was a couple of weeks ago. As soon as I heard the allegations went down, I called you and said, we can fire away today, right? Yeah, well, you must be calling another show. I don't remember that one. John Feinstein will join us next longtime columnist and bestselling author. On the madness of March. You are listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast.

"Your family and everybody listening. Thank you so much. The great John Feinstein joining us, we will take a break, get your reaction to that. And much, much more right after this. You are listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. And welcome back here on a Tuesday afternoon. How about Robin Kentucky up next? Hello rob. It's great to talk to you. Thank you. I'm just calling in because I recently heard you talk into someone about coach Cal and they were kind of giving him a rough time and you were defending them a little bit. And I want to give you an interesting stat and just get your opinion on it and how it might affect things going forward down the road rather. Since going 39 and one in 2015, they are something like 17 and 19 against power 5 non conference opponents. And I know we're nowhere near that right now, but if that trend continues, how long do you think it would be before maybe a tough decision would have to be made or that would become an issue? Rob, I don't think we're anywhere in that zip code right now. And I don't need it. That's why I was asking what you think the timeline might be. I understand Kentucky fans appetite for championships. And that's fine. Everyone of that ilk has the same goal, but with John calipari does year and year out. And I'm scrubbing last year out of this conversation, is an entertaining program that competes for SEC and national championships. And he does. And you can quibble about where the trajectory is. But I think it's I think it's a waste of time to consider anything else. And I say this in the aftermath of having just talked to him a couple of hours ago and to see what he's doing as we speak, trying to help people in the state. And I'm not trying to. Divide the conversation because ultimately Kentucky fans want to see this basketball team compete. But I think they are. They play a very difficult schedule every year. And they get to the tournament. And that's really where you should be. I mean, Kentucky, it would be nice to see them get back in the final four after a couple years absent. It would be nice to see them win a title. I frankly thought the 20 team was heading for a national championship before COVID. But I think any criticism of cow is way, way off the charts. Thank you for the call. Thank.

"John take us through some of the most surprising elements of your reporting for this project. Well, I think it goes back to what I just said, Paul, that in talking to the people I spoke to, I found again and again, I mean, the numbers are obvious. Three black coaches at a 32 in the NFL, which is 75% black in terms of the players. Ten FPS, 10% of the FBS coaches are black when more than 50% of the players are black. College basketball has gotten better in the last year. There have been a lot of black hires, young black hires, but the numbers there have been great to pack 12 conference which hired the first black power 5 coach George raveling in 1971 at Washington state has an at a black coach in the league for the last three years. And that to me is a shocking number. But what I found beyond the numbers because the numbers are there. Richard lab chick, who you probably know has researched these numbers for years. And years. But the number, when I talk to, for example, Ozzy Newsom, who was the first black NFL general manager, didn't get the title till after he'd won a Super Bowl in Baltimore. But he told me a story about 1970 when he was 14 years old, and he went to a pop Warner football tryout. And then when the coaches said, okay, quarterbacks over there running back there, linebackers there, whatever. He instinctively started to walk over to the quarterbacks. And then he looked and he saw every other kid there was white. And at that point, as you know, the only professional quarterback black professional quarterback had been Marlon Briscoe, who played 11 games for the Denver Broncos in 1968, finished second in The Rookie of the year voting and never played quarterback again in either the AFL or the NFL. And after the merger. And Ozzy said, I instinctively walked to the quarterbacks because I always played quarterback in a schoolyard because I was the best player. Any city realized they weren't going to let me play quarterback. There was no way. So he went with the receivers and as you know, he became a star at Alabama under Bear Bryant. And then NFL Hall of Fame receiver. And should be in the Hall of Fame as an executive for the work he's done and he did in Baltimore through the years. But what he said to me and this was important was it's 50 years later. It's 50 years since that pop Warner triad. And obviously, we've made huge progress. I mean, just look at half a dozen of the best quarterbacks in the NFL today are black. He said, but I still feel like you have to be twice as good if you're black. To make it as a quarterback to make it as a head coach to make it as a general manager as CEO or an owner. At least. And the perfect example is Lamar Jackson, who he drafted with the last pick of the first round in 2018, almost 50 years after the story he told me. And you remember Paul, because you probably had conversations on your show about it. How many people were saying that Lamar should become a wide receiver or running back because he was fast and unsaid because he was black? Talking to John Feinstein, the name of the book is raise a fist. John, I'm hearing this and I'm also hearing reaction around the country. And you've dealt with this across your entire career. And I'm not asking you to respond to that. That's not what you do. You report and write a book, but as you dove deeper into this and I know continue to hear the same story. It goes even beyond the athletic field does it not just in terms of what a lot of the people that you interview have encountered in their personal life in oh very much so. Very much explain that. Well, Ed tap Scott, who was the first black CEO of an NBA team. Said it to me very well, I think. He said, you know, and others I interviewed when I brought this quote up, said, yeah, 100%. When you wake up in this country as a black person, regardless of what you do or who you are, you have two jobs. One is your job. The other is to be black and deal with all that comes with that. Dalan cough, who works at ESPN who played basketball at Columbia. Who is light skinned. His wife is not as light skinned. And when she takes her daughter out in Connecticut, just for a walk in a stroller, she's often asked how long she's worked for the family that her daughter comes from because she is light skin like Alan. In other words, because she's black, she must be an au pair. And one day dallon and his wife are walking down the street together with their daughter and a woman stop them and ask them questions about the baby and a hundred yards later, a police officer stopped them. Assuming the baby was kidnapped because it was a white looking child with at least one parent who looked black. These are the kinds of things that you and I can't possibly imagine. Nor can you and I understand what it's like to be stopped for DWB, which every person I interview driving while black had experienced at least once and in most cases multiple times now the funniest story about that is the Olympic swimmer Colin Jones who took his dog for a walk one evening in Charlotte, where he lives. And a police car did a U turn, came back to him and demanded to know where he'd gotten the dog and asked him to what kind of dog is it? How long have you had it? Where did you get it? And finally, decided that the dog belonged to Colin. And I said to Colin, as he told me this story, you're the first person I've talked to who's been stopped for W D WB walking dog while black. Now sorry, but it kind of symbolizes things that black people go through that as George raveling who was born in a segregated hospital said to me back 84 years old. But he said, John, I know how sympathetic you are. But you can't possibly empathize with being black because you've never experienced it. And of course, he's right. But I can talk to people who have lived it and that's what I tried to do in this book. Raise a fist, take a knee race and the illusion of progress in modern sports by John Feinstein. John, many, many thanks for joining us. It's always a pleasure to hear from you and to visit with you. Paul, thanks for having me. Thanks for taking the time to look at the book and happy holidays to.

"Listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. We welcome you back and the subject of race is one that is extremely difficult for many of us, even now to talk about. Which brings us to our next guest. He is The Washington Post columnist, John Feinstein, and one of the bestselling sports authors of all time, his latest raise a 5th, take a knee, according to one reviewer, may not be the most popular book, Feinstein has authored, but it is the most important John. First of all, it's just a great pleasure to have you on the program. We have spoken to you so many times over the years with your books. But this one struck me differently than so many others and good afternoon and thanks so much for the time. Well, Paul, thank you for having me. Again, I appreciate it because I do think this is my most important book because of the subject matter. It's different than anything I've ever done. I know there are going to be people who aren't going to like rate my raising the subject. It is as you said a very difficult one and an uncomfortable one. I think for a lot of people, but I felt the need to do this because dating back to really the anthem protests of 2017 and I sat in those NFL stadiums and watch black players Neil and watch white fans mostly white fans boo. And my thought was, we've never been more polarized racially than we are now with all the progress that's been made through the years. And that's when I went to speak to John Thompson, the great Georgetown coach to tell him, I wanted to write a book on race, but didn't know where to start. And John said to me, he said, you might as well try to explain the holy Trinity, which I think is very accurate. And then he said, which is why you need to write this book. And that's when I knew I wanted to attempt it. And there were a lot of publishers who were skeptical. Could it white guy write about the subject of race without being black, which clearly I'm not, and my answer was well, I've written about college basketball coaches and I never coached college basketball and I've written about professional golf and I never played professional golf, never even played very good amateur golf. And I've written about college football and pro football and I never played either or coached either. And to me, you know me a long time, Paul, you know everything I do is about reporting. And that's what I tried to do in this book. I spoke to about a hundred people, not all of them black, but most of them black. And the stories I came away with convinced me that I had been wrong in thinking the focus of the book should be on how polarized we are. That's like saying today's Tuesday. It's the elephant in the room in our society. We certainly saw that in the aftermath of George Floyd's murder. But really in 2021, no matter who you are, if you are black, your life is different. And I think in many ways, more difficult than our lives, as white people. Millions of ESPN fantasy.

"James. How Paul, how are you today? Very well. Thank you. A couple of questions for you. First of all, you know, with all these guys are committing and then committing, it just seems like it's unfair or whatever you want to call it that you have these 15, 16 year old kids trying to make such a decision and then they have to change it and they want to decommit. First of all, what does the letter of intent does it find anybody to anything and why does it the NCAA come up with a plan that they can't sign something to maybe they're into their junior year I'll let you think about that and then either one is the coaching changes and there's a signing date this week and so forth. Once again, NCAA come up with a plan that none of that can happen until after the ball game. So everybody's searching for the same coach. Everybody's recruiting is equal. Why does everything have to be in such a hurry for these kids to make these decisions and find these letters and these coaches are leaving their decommission anyway? Just thought I'd get your opinion on that. James, thank you for the call. And yeah, I mean, this is what they wanted. This legislation was passed. And one thing that's confusing a little bit won't be confusing and much longer is the additional year for COVID. It became much easier to move around than to stick around. But you're bringing up a really intriguing point asking the NCAA to do anything. The NCAA is a bankrupt organization in terms of any ability to do anything constructive for the game of football or basketball or anything else. So we're depending on many, many schools who have different guidelines than the SEC to legislate the entire body and it's a broken system. And that's why we have some of the problems that we do, but as far as the early signing period, coaches wanted it. I think the commitments don't mean very much. I mean, you can't sign until tomorrow, you can commit when you're born if you want. And we're not far away from seeing that. Thank you for the call. Great to hear from you. Check out uncle B, who is in Nashville, hello, uncle be. Hey, Paul, how are you doing this afternoon? We are doing great. Thank you. My biggest question is, how do you feel about I kind of feel like they really don't give a coach as enough time to develop a program to recruit less use curve smart for example? If he loses this next game, there's people going to be coming at his next. People are going to be looking fire him and you have to ask yourself a question. What was George before Kirby's Mark had there? Well, first of all, uncle bee, let me say this. Nobody in the right mind is going to be looking to fire Kirby smart regardless of what happens in the next game. That is preposterous. That doesn't mean he won't be criticized, but he is very secure. He's about to get an extension and arrays, which everybody does, by the way. And that's all done from a recruiting standpoint. If you're not making with the other guys making, then you will be soon. And it's just part of the current world that we live in. But ultimately, the college football that we now have. And there is a lot of pressure. I mean, who would have predicted a year ago this week when the schedule was different and Florida was heading to the SEC championship game, the Dan Mullen would be out before we got to the one year anniversary of that game where he played his team played quite well. So the money is out of control, but it's only going to get worse. So if you're a fan and you're spending a lot of money that you may not really have so you can go buy a ticket and sit in the stands or cheer from home and your coach is making 7 to $10 million, fails, then you won't change. And it's natural. This is not the good old days when college coaches were part of the overall academic way of life. And that's unfortunate, but my biggest issue I have is they don't give a coaches enough time to develop a program. You look at Florida, you look at LSU, they wouldn't surprise me at all if Clemson is rambling around about replacing their head coach. And the biggest issue for me is just not the head coach. You got to look at the whole business side of college football all together. You got a lot of people who are in positions that really probably don't belong in those positions. It just doesn't start with the head coach. Well, uncle be I agree with you overall, but I'm not going to come back at you with everything you said in terms of disagreeing because things change pretty quickly. At ozer on fire under two years after winning a national championship, it's happened to other people. But ultimately in those specific cases, the coaches have been fired for things unrelated to the field. And if you're on had been perfect off the field, I think he would probably still be there. We'll take a break. John Feinstein, who's been covering college and college athletics and another things for more than 40 years, he's one of the bestselling authors on the sports scene. He will join us next. You are.

Beautiful day here in greeley. Oh absolutely and well. Things still kind of up in the air when it comes to all of the restrictions and the mandates relative to kobe nineteen But i loved what you had to say in the state of the university address on september eighth that i mean we can win and whine and complain. My words not yours but you took a more positive approach. Absolutely first of all. I am so excited. Happy that we have students back on campus in person and although we do have some restrictions It's it's business as usual. And it's wonderful to know that we are making progress on supporting all of our bears to degree and brawl very happy about that and look forward to continued and productive fall semester. and and beyond. So where do you stand. I mean it's interesting if you've been following the news we've seen several schools. We've seen protests at k. Through twelve schools relative to masking requirements and Some schools upping the ante rest christian among them getting legal counsel and that scenario continues jefferson county that scenario continues as well In which you have several christian schools saying they're being unfairly targeted by masking. So where does that. All stand at. The university of northern colorado requirement in public spaces. So that would be our common areas across campus in our classrooms. We don't have masks requirements when students are in there for housing arrangements and To be frank. We haven't had a lot of resistance to that. In fact we had a lot of support We had numerous conversations with student groups faculty and staff groups prior to the start of a fall semester and agreed that this was the best course of action. You keep us healthy and safe in the short term and so certainly Something that i'd like to see like us to be able to see our entire faces when written classroom walking the halls but for right now. I think we're doing the right thing and ensuring that we need to limit the spread of this virus which continues to plague. Unc in this in this country You know we also have. As we mentioned talking about last time gael vaccine mandate and as of yesterday eighty five percent of our students are vaccinated and about ninety percent of our faculty and staff for vaccine which numbers are higher. But they're certainly much higher than the surrounding communities in colorado. We do have a very flexible Exemption.

So what if larry elder becomes governor await a minute. What did that caller just remind us. If something happens dianne feinstein. Who's sick as a dog. And she either is incapacitated. Or you know god forbid dies. We don't wish her will if senator feinstein can't complete her term. The governor of california governor larry elder or his biden would say elder gets to appoint the replacement senator and surprise. There's no more fifty fifty senate and that's the end of vice president. Kamala harris breaking all the votes and the votes and this would be just an interesting turn of events.

Is Larry Elder the Hope for California?

"First of all. Let me just say that I had the honour of speaking at a a major fundraiser. For larry elder last night and he was so magnificent until captivating of the audience. The people looked at him with hope. I mean he's really a source of hope at this time. It's the darkest time in america since the civil war and We need we need that help. So larry you have a lot on your shoulders. You feel as i do feel dennis But as i said i think last night i think i unknowingly. I've been preparing for this all my life talking about these issues of crime and if the rise in homelessness and the outrageous cost of living here in california and you know what to do to better manage the the water supply what to do to better manage fire so without knowing it by having guest guest after guest talking about these kinds of things and thinking about them. I've been preparing for this all my life as for all of the negativities. That's the that's come forward every day. It's something new. I still myself for that too. I i knew that when you run in when you threaten the The established order They're gonna go absolutely bonkers and in this case one of the things. That are really concerned about dennis. I think you. And i talked about this last night Is that when. I become governor and should god forbid something happened to diane feinstein and my understanding. She's more She's more challenged mentally than even joe biden. Because no one's seen her. And i don't know how long i would have the opportunity to replace her. And that would change the balance in the senate and of course they are absolutely crazy insane over that because a balanced right. Now it's fifty fifty and this would be a dramatic shift in power for the republicans. And when i become governor i most certainly would replace her with republican senator. So they're concerned about a addition to the other thing. California blue state could elect a common sense conservative. Larryelder them into other states could too.

Republicans Aim at GOP Base in 1st California Recall Debate

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

"You know. Barack obama black people loved rock obama but they were kinda side. I in him until be one iowa and like oh wait a minute. Maybe he can win and they were jumping ship from the clinton camp. Maybe he can win. And i think that's all oppression is wanting to be with a winning team and not actually believing that the person that reflects your own experiences can win as an acknowledgement of the fact that we have racism in this country And so it all goes back to that so what we do. Is we endorse early. So this summer will roll out quite a few women. We will surround them with as much support raising support. Organizing sport messaging support. We will be there team and we will build power around them and then we've got a fight within our own party. Which is my favorite job. Love that job. Speaking truth to power is my love language joe. I'd love to our own party and saying you need to better. You need to support these women with stacey. Abrams ran for governor. She was challenged by her own party. With a woman named stacey evans a white woman named stacey evans was supported by the party against a c and clearly stacey ever won that race overwhelmingly and then they everybody jumped on the bandwagon when she got into our general. What we're saying to our own party is trust. Black women support black women early. And we do that. We're gonna be great. You're starting to see that happen without demings. Feeling good about that. I think part of that is because she's kind of a democratic establishment queen and everybody loves her. We need to do that all the time. We need to believe in black women and we need to support them so we can do that early if we can raise more money. Raised more people or harder weakened win these races because what we know. Is that black women. When they are in leadership they reflect everybody they really do lift up all communities. And i think that's the part of other ism as part of being discriminated against and so we can we can build that and we just gotta fight against our own our own party ourselves to really start to believe that black women can win and give them all the support. They need all right. You bet thank you so much for being on its political. We'll have to talk down the road we get into these races a little bit more and see where we're at plus do and happy to do and thanks so much for having me. I'd like to thank you all for listening and hope that you and your families are safe and healthy. I'd like to thank you for joining us today. I'd like to thank the king.

"I think this effort that biden is doing to try to show by Partisanship allowing republicans to really use him. In this way. I think it weighs against his credibility as a leader. You don't have to be donald trump. you don't have to be evil awful Ugly difficult but you do need to show your powerful if you're leading the most powerful office arguably in the world and if he can't get republicans to move if he doesn't get joe manchin eventually people are gonna lose credibility. Is he the leader that we expected and he was elected because people thought well he's had the longest amount of time in that body. He's respected by that body. He's are safe choices. Got the experience but then it's already been more than it's been more than six months now. And what has he been able to show in the in the area bipartisanship and even keeping his own caucus together. Let's talk about another a democratic senator. Who was not up for reelection until two thousand twenty four bringing it back to california. Dianne feinstein senator dianne feinstein. She was asked the other day about the filibuster and context of a new roof. New voting rights legislation called the for the people act that would counter for people are not familiar with it. A lot of the voter suppression Legislation that's going on in states across the country right now She was asked by force forbes magazine recently if she thought that the democracy wasn't jeopardy and feinstein said if democracy were in jeopardy i would want to protect it but i don't see it being jeopardy right now as she wants to say she wants to wait and see what happens with the for for the people act and and right now she. She's not clearly sporting goods her conversation with forbes recently about the what she would support. What are you gonna do about dianne. Feinstein is going to be I remember i wrote a column a couple of months ago about a number of progressive groups there were lining up to To put some heat on feinstein. I know that she is Gets a lotta respect as a as a as a pioneer in the party but A lot of progressive groups had had had enough a couple of months ago. Then coincidentally couple of days later she came back and short sort of softened her position the filibuster her opposition to it. What do you think about her. Now what are you going to do about it. You know first of all i'd say. Democrats are not all created equal. This is all things like well. Let's just get all the democrats together. Get something done. And i will tell you My colleague chris christie on abc would stay democrats fall in love. Republicans fall in line. And i and i thought that was such a crass reading. You know the way politics are supposed to go. But i'm getting frustrated right now because you don't see democrats really falling in line over issues that are foundational to our party. I mean voting rights is foundational to our party protecting working class people foundational. And you've got people take left. And right and i think that illustrates the point that i made about how chuck schumer how commonly harris and how joe biden are going to handle this caucus. Really get everybody on board. Which is number one. I lost a bit of love for dianne. Feinstein during the barrett nomination a. You might remember. The i mean she was like that was the hug of death rate. When when she you know decided the coddle members of the of the senate a time they were they were literally trying to use their own rules violating their own rules to quickly seat the woman who is the antithesis of the great ruth bader ginsburg and so i lost love for her. Then and my my opinion is this. Democracy for america stands for fight everywhere when everywhere. You can win anywhere you organize the people we've got more people they've got more money arguably but if you organized people we can win. And she's a good example of someone who has been in that long. Who feels really really safe is likely very compromise. Not unlike by joe manchin by money and politics and we're her money comes from and i think she's just kind of old school in the way that she thinks about how this is supposed to go because these are friends but at the end of the day when they were in control they were not your friend. Republicans never talk about bipartisanship. When they're in control ever they just want to get it done and they will move hell or high water they will. They will change their rules. Violate their rules. Make new rules in order to get their agenda pass than a democrats for some reason when we get control. We get a little bit more shy. And i think it's all of those things together. I think you've got some politicians who who have never really been dedicated or tested on core democratic principles. They've been there long and they're under the pressure in the weight of money in politics i think she needs to be primary We will be trying to identify someone to primary her up. She needs to resign. And i think there was some question about whether she would particularly up the Honeybear and tobacco while say there was a lot of pressure on her in. There was questions about how. How long would actually stay with us. She run again was i think she's up. She's not up again until two thousand twenty four. That's the thing you have to wait a while to primary her. What would what do you do in the interim if anything well i mean our strategy and twenty twenty two with all of the folks who get another term is really to get as many new senators in to minimize their impact right so we can get more democratic senators and increased our majority. Now you're taking away the crown's ship or the power of a mansion a cinema of a fine steve so we add more. I think we add more progressive democratic centre senators. We know we're going to be true to these. Core principles are not going to be afraid. Challenge whoever big money. The status quo mcconnell Whatever a donald trump in trumpism because they're going to be a dedicated to the core values. So really we hope to bring in four five six more senators increase the majority in the senate so that barrett voices these. The centers are are not as important or not as critical and then when they're not as critical that you don't see them posturing in way you don't see them you know china be the kingmaker of the queenmaker. I think that's winning. Twenty twenty four. We can unseat these people with new people and it really does take that kind of time. I mean i'd sell candidates all the time anyone who will listen organizationally. If he's been at this for seventeen years we talked to like over a thousand people in that time. We've learned a few things. And i think the state wide races. You've gotta start sooner so if you're already organizing in california's a big state so far. But you know you're already if you're already organizing working class west virginians now to challenge mansion. You're working that muscle you giving these people out. When it comes time for his seat he's either going to be accountable. He's gonna be out and so the work. The work that we do around organizing has to be multi cycle and and that was the challenge that we had. i think. i don't know if you sure you talk a lot. Last cycle about the failures of what happens during the senate races last cycle where we had all of these candidates a lot of money very little organizing very little messaging about what they were gonna do when we lost most of those in fact we were hanging on a thread by the to last seats in georgia because so many of those laws and i think hopefully what we learned from that is starter earlier. Organiz people be intentional. And don't wait to the last minute to try to unseat incumbents who are ingrained in the minds of people across the state and they have no reason. They don't have time enough energy to be able to study why they should live their vote. I think we just need to take that time so the faa is already in the process of organizing states. Now for these very very important races. I will take place for years. My conversation with the vet simpson after the short break. Are you good with people. Maybe you're organized or have a knack for numbers while then chances are you've got skills that could lead to a new career. A google career certificate can help you get a foot in the door with top employers in fast growing fields like it support project management data analytics and user experience design. It's professional level training developed and top glow employers and. That's all online. So you can learn around your schedule. Put your skills to work. Go to grow dot google slash certificates.

"To figure that out so first of all if you watch fox news you would think that we're using federal government money for this. Of course we're not right. You would think that we're combining man and paik and perhaps spare but no. We're not doing any of that. In terms of ood nothing has ever been born. These are embryos or k. Now i know the pro-life people are like no kidding cicirino circuit because i'm pro-life but we we're trying to create these organs that would save people's lives. No dog. let them die. Which part of your from pro-life party. Okay maybe you should find a different words. I'm not sure you know what that word means. And then so look if you were having a real conversation about this which we're going to try to do here a little bit. It's it's very interesting and it's not that you shouldn't be at all concerned so when you have When they tried it with pigs the again embryos dishes. Nothing's they're still human pecan with. Its ever been born right but even then the human genes that stick in in those embryos is one out of one hundred thousand. So it's nearly basically doesn't work is my layman's interpretation of that. John knows a little bit about more than i do right but when they try to so they tried it with monkeys now. This is gets interesting luke jeans. They saw in those cells three or four percent three to four percent human and one got up too much seven seven percent human now. I'm getting uncomfortable. And you don't have to believe that it's from hell or delay dad and it's not a satan spawn right but there's one island where a doctor moreau has been doing some pretty interesting research beyond that. I don't think they've made anything. We should be too worried about. Yeah no it hasn't been made absolutely not nothing's ever born. We don't use us government money and it's not done in the us. It's done in china right so all. Those things are misleading. Bridget come in. And then i want to ask a question about the subsequent. Yeah i feel the same way. I'm not gonna pretend to be a scientist who knows the announced but it really just sounds like another wave for the right to fear monger more anti science anti choice rhetoric. I would be interested in more about this technology in this research but again because they have to take it to the extreme they have to say this is from hell. You're going to see all of this. We can't even have a major measured conversation about what's actually happening in reality because they're too busy with their anti-science fearmongering so that's definitely something clear on that one. But john if you can get the four percent or seven percent human theoretically you could get twenty five percent human and and now you have an embryo theoretically could be implanted. Okay so as far as i have seen. And i'm not an expert either. They're not creating like true mixtures. That are twenty five percent like they have remnants of dna or. There's one like one organ or something like that and always of species. That are very close together. This isn't chimpanzee and octopus. I know we've all wanted that. That's not what it is it's nelson rat. It's human and chimp. It's things that are already genetically as close as possible to each other is but what does fake i he sent it. I guess my fear is that look first of all. They know exactly what they're doing at fox news. They put this out there. And what do you think people on. Facebook are going to do with this segment okay. They already think there's lizard people out there and worrying this area is that a conspiracy theory is always going to do best when it's a little bit easier to accept when you it seems like there's evidence of it so for instance they're going to start to look out there and say well. There's a senator from west. Virginia he has traits of a dog sometimes. Kentucky possible turtle hybrid. There's a senator right now in texas and so really irresponsible people are going to run with this thing and god knows what they're going to believe in a few months john you did. You were counterproductive there because all of a sudden man turtle i mean.

"Democracy or in jeopardy wanna protect it but she does not see it being in jeopardy right now. It's difficult to hear things like that and think that we're all living in the same country you know when you look around the former president just two weeks ago was talking about how the election was raised. And how he really wanted that. Repeated lie is being used to restrict voting rights all over the country particularly for black and brown folks. It is a very difficult for me to understand how someone could not see the way that our democracy is so much in peril right now but i guess that's how she feels. I think that it really calls into question whether or not we're sort of living in the same country but i yeah just it is very frustrating to feel like she lives in a completely different country than the rest of us so many democrats Aren't going to do anything about the filibuster and even a fulfil buster were gone. Joe manchin says that he literally opposes the for the people like now despite having cosponsored passed. So it's not looking like that's gonna pass now. He does support the john lewis act and he says well don't worry that's awesome doesn't go nearly as far but we can get a bunch of republicans to support it. They're not going to support it. They have no interest in that either. Obviously so what are we going to get. What limited thing. What shield are we going to have against the non stop onslaught against democracy from republicans across the country. Well we have this. I guess earlier today. Attorney general merrick garland announced the doj would double its voting rights staff while condemning a number of recently passed state laws and issuing a stern warning. Ooh it is strongly worded That the department would combat voter restrictions that run afoul of the law. That's sort of the issue though. They're changing the laws. I understand you means federal law but that needs to be strengthened to anyway. The justice department notably during the trump era didn't hire a single outside attorney for the voting rights section. That's so weird. What an oversight and left the department will just fifteen voting rights lawyers about half the number that staffed the section during the obama years. It's almost like they didn't care about it. At all garland says the department will also take measures to limit gerrymandering while setting guidelines for absentee and mail voting ahead of the twenty twenty two midterm elections violation. That he's going to double what they have. No that would just bring it back to where.

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

The American Jewish Philanthropic Complex with Lila Corwin Berman

"Lila. Corwin berman is professor of history at temple university where she holds the murray friedman chair of american jewish history and directs the feinstein center for american jewish history. She's the author of numerous books including the jewish philanthropic complex. Which we're talking about today. As well as metropolitan jews politics race and religion in postwar detroit which appeared in two thousand fifteen and her two thousand nine book speaking of jews rabbis intellectuals and the creation of an american public identity. I'm so excited to share episode as lila points out in her book. Philanthropy is something that touches on all aspects of our lives and we should think critically about how it operates and what that means in historical and cultural terms. I hope you check out the book. And i've also linked to an excerpt. Thanks for listening. Hi lila will help to the podcast. Thanks i'm so glad you could join us to talk about your book which is really. It's just so phenomenal. I think that there are so many different things that we can talk about from this book and all the different issues that it really raises. I think that one place for us to get started really is to think about the manifold ways that philanthropy touches our lives. Well you know when. I started working on this book. Although i realize i had lived a life that was really very much shaped by philanthropy. It wasn't really something given a lot of you know. And then once. I sort of went back to try to create an inventory. I was a little bit shocked. I literally did try to sit. And kind of calculate like okay. How much money has been invested in me. You know my family. My children would ever through philanthropy. You sort of realized it's everywhere in in a sense. Maybe that's why i hadn't seen it that much because we're just seemed natural is just the world i lived in in. It's not just in my world as a person who happens to be jewish but in museums i go to newspapers. I read the radio station. I listen to kind of every facet of my life had some kind of imprint of philanthropy. So like in a certain sense. I think it makes sense that you know. This isn't a topic that people necessarily think of studying that much because it just feels very ubiquitous but then when you kinda take a step back from it and think about well how does this work and why does it feel like it so natural. It's so inevitable you realize like most things. It has a history and this thing that seems like it's so familiar and has always been the way it may appear in our lives today actually has really changed vastly over time and so that was kind of like the animating question that it had you know even on a kind of philosophical level like what are the things that we just take as being very natural in our lives and how can we sort of dig into them and understand how they formed at how they developed into feeling like these structures that are so so natural. Part of what you're pointing out here is the way in which so many of the tuitions that we interact with like you mentioned. Museums newspapers radio stations. Many of them are charitable in their structure. Right there five. Oh one c. Threes thinking about museums for instance or they are subsidized to large extent by foundations or other kinds of charitable donations. I think that this is an elements that people recognize. We understand this would just don't always give it a lot of thought. I think there's all sorts of ways that you can think about even when you go to university. I mainly thought about how. I pay tuition at the college. They went to his undergraduate in that tuition was paying for my education. But actually the college i went to had an endowment and it had donors who gave an it had a whole other structure that tied it not really contractually in terms of relationship to me right as kind of the customers paying my tuition to go there but actually tied it. In arguably a more contractual way both to the donors who gave money to it into the american state. That in various ways subsidize that. So i think that you suddenly realize the sense that like the room is much fuller than you might have thought or if you think about the people who are like eighteen to maybe thirty or whatever now who go on a trip to israel through birthright generally. I think it feels like you. Think of that as okay. Here's like this college student and ney get accepted into a particular birth-rate program and they go with a bunch of other college students in there are counselors or leaders. Go with then maybe you realize oh well who's paying for this right because it's free of course not free someone's paying for it right so who is paying for it. How do the mechanics of that work. And how is that person or that entity that foundation that federation whatever it might be involved in a relationship in terms of what the program is but also in a relationship again with the american state right because any of that money that is given to a five. Oh one c. Three is also tax wise being subsidized by the american state. So you suddenly have a much more interesting set of actors that really alight on these kinds of nonprofit institutions right that make them actually fairly complicated sites for thinking about how power so that is an incredibly kind of rich place to start to questions about different structures that inhabit and how those structures delimit the kinds of that operates and how those structures have changed retirement y. Yeah i mean you're talking about the way in which we have to have a critical perspective on philanthropy. I think that this is a very narrow line to walk as it were because on the one hand i think that we all recognize the philanthropy and charity are social goods and this is the reason why. The state subsidizes essentially through making it tax deductible so while we recognize that that flappy is a good thing. Why is it important for us to have a critical perspective to bring historical perspective. And how do we do this in a way that still also recognizes that philanthropies of social. Could i don't know that. I am so interested in starting from kind of normative statement of whether something is or isn't social good for me. The important thing to think about is how do these different kinds of forces that continue to shape people's lives. How do we understand their historical formation. And how can that help us ask different questions about the way they're operating and maybe eventually those normative questions about whether or not. They're doing the best that they might be able to do. So it simply is a fact that this system philanthropy exists in american life and certainly sust in american jewish life and it has a history and to understand that history. We need to ask what. I would call critical questions. Which doesn't mean that we need to condemn it or roundly criticize it but the very basic question of saying how did this thing develop into what it is is already itself a critical question. Because it's making us kind of pull back the fashioning of something being just natural or inevitable and having to ask know what were the different. Contexts enforces in conditions. That caused it to be developed. So one of the responses that i would receive when i would tell people especially people who were working in the world of jewish philanthropy when i was talking to them about the book i'm writing. They would say clearly. It's going to be very important that you talk about how generous american jews has been you know and they would talk about the fact that over time american jews have given high levels of charity in that they're very philanthropic minded and in my mind the critical question there is not to say we praise or do we not praise people participated in this system. The critical question is to ask how have people been conscripted into this system. Such that it seems like it itself defines. What is generosity because we also need to ask about other ways that people might have been using their resources or other ways of the american state might have been using its resources to have. Is this particular system. Come to define a mode of generosity. The intellectual project of this book is really asking about how an institution was shaped and how it was formed right. I mean. I think that this is a key distinction that we always seems to be making because critique does not always mean critical right those two words have a linguist relationship to each other but there are different modes of doing this and i think that intellectual critique is really a central animating process that we need to be applied to all aspects of life and all aspects of history even to things which we understand are generally good in their nature. They also have a history like you said they also can be looked from critical perspective without condemning them.

The George Moscone and Harvey Milk Assassinations

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

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

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

That means not bounce around like a ping pong ball from story to story, but we're going to do a deep dive and something that's not really in the news right now. And so let us pretend that I am the New York Times, it's painful, it's painful, but let us pretend. So here's my headline. Is Dianne Feinstein a spy for red China. I repeat just a question. His Dianne Feinstein a spy for red China. And there was a great piece several months ago by Ben winegarden at a great website called the federalist. And the headline is and we've talked about Feinstein and her husband Richard bloom over the years and their relationships with the Chinese government. And how they've made a hell of a lot of money and how I believe that's affect her policies in some ways. But the question is should there. Be a special counsel investigating her. Shouldn't the news media be focused on her? Is winegarden writes in a very long piece, and I can't read all of it. I sometimes say that in my last life. Maybe I was Chinese pets quote from Diane. Franken feinstein. As media intelligence agencies and political scrutiny of foreign meddling is seemingly at its apex. He story with big national security implications of a high ranking Senator with access to America's most sensitive intelligence information has been hiding in plain sight, just like Ted Kennedy was. The story involves China and the senior US Senator from California. And former chair of the Senate select committee on intelligence democrat Dianne Feinstein, it was buried eight paragraphs into a recent political expose on foreign efforts to infiltrate Silicon Valley as a passing example, political espionage quote from politico. Former intelligence officials said Chinese intelligence once recruited a staff member at California office. Have you have Senator Dianne Feinstein and the source reported back to China about local politics a spokesperson for Feinstein's said. The office doesn't comment on personnel matters are investigations, but noted that no Feinstein staffer in California's ever been excuse has ever had a security clearance later comes additional detail, according to four former Intel officials in the two thousands, a staffer and Senator Dianne Feinstein San Francisco field office was reporting back to the m s s China's ministry of state security, it's intelligence and security apparatus now while this person who.

This suspect an informant was run by officials based at China's San Francisco consulate said, another former intelligence official despise handler, probably got an an award back to China for his work noted this former official dryly so this anecdote provides significantly more questions than answers for starters. Who was the spy for how long was the spy under surveillance. What information about local politics with the spy passing back to China? Just how close was despite the Senator did law enforcement officials sweep vehicles and other areas for light listening devices. Was there an intelligent excuse me in an investigation into whether others in the senators circle may have been coordinating with Beijing did the Senator expose south to potential blackmail or the public danger through leakage of sensitive highly classified information is firing really the proper punishment for providing political intelligence to farm power. Here's my question. Was she removed from the Senate intelligence committee know, why she investigated by any Senate committee? No with a Senate committee is under the control of the Republicans. Yes. So why didn't they? Lindsay. We now know only the most basic of additional details about what occurred in Feinstein's office five years ago, the FBI approach the Senator to a prize or that a San Francisco Bay Stafford was being investigated under suspicion of spying for China. According to the San Francisco Chronicle Feinstein's hometown paper, this staffer would work with Feinstein from us twenty years drove around in San Francisco and served as gopher inner San Francisco office liaison to the Asian American community, even at tending Chinese consulate functions for the Senator. And it goes on. But there's better and more. For the last forty years. No politician in America has arguably maintained a deeper more longstanding and friendlier relationship with red China at the highest levels of its ruling communist party and Feinstein dates back to the opening of US China diplomatic relations in one thousand nine hundred seventy nine. Shortly thereafter Feinstein, then mayor of San Francisco established a sister city relationship with Shanghai. What are the earliest and most robust such relationships in US China history soon after Feinstein led a mayoral delegation to China joined by your husband investor? Richard bloom, a trip they took together many times over the ensuing years as the relationship between both Feinstein's and China grew. During the nineteen eighties. As mayor of San Francisco Feinstein developed, a close friendship with Shanghai, mayor Zhang them in this substantially enhanced Feinstein's foreign policy profile and created an important linkage to the US government for China's communist party, the P injustice Feinstein rose to a prominent position in foreign affairs and national security in the Senate, I on the foreign relations committee, and lighters.

The PSE initiated a brutal crackdown against practitioners of fallen gun including mass imprisonments, beatings, torture, rape, Oregon, harvesting and murder and engaging in alleged human rights atrocities against thebenz Feinstein, never renounced her friendship with Jiang in spite of these acts. Feinstein and Jiang reportedly visited each other regular in the nineteen eighties was Jiang wants spending thanksgiving in San Francisco with Feinstein and her husband Jiang supported dance and Dan supposedly dance with Feinstein during one such visit would surely must have been a propaganda coup for the I'll let Ted Kennedy and the Soviets.

"That's eight four four l e v. I n TV you're sick of what the New York Times is doing. Well, help us unraveling and address it on Levin TV. You're sick of what the Washington Post wall each and transcripts. They're they're on a tight hold come to Levin. Tv come to blaze TV network. And I think you'll really really appreciate what we're doing. It's very expensive. What we're doing? We're trying to keep our costs as low as possible. Ladies and gentlemen. I hope you'll stick with me right now because we're going to do what we call it, deep dive. That means not bounce around like a ping pong ball from story to story, but we're going to do a deep dive and something that's not really in the news right now. And so let us pretend that I am the New York Times, it's painful, it's painful, but let us pretend. So here's my headline. Is Dianne Feinstein a spy for red China. I repeat just a question. His Dianne Feinstein a spy for red China. And there was a great piece several months ago by Ben winegarden at a great website called the federals. And the headline is and we've talked about Feinstein and her husband, Richard bloom over the years and their relationships with the Chinese government, and how they've made a hell of a lot of money, and how believe that's affect her policies in some ways. But the question is should there. Be a special counsel investigating her. Shouldn't the news media be focused on her? Weingarten writes in a very long piece, and I can't read all of it. I sometimes say that in my last life. Maybe I was Chinese Betsy quote from Diane Franken Feinstein. As media intelligence agencies and political scrutiny of foreign meddling is seemingly at a PECS. He story with big national security implications involving a high ranking Senator with access to America's most sensitive intelligence information has been hiding in plain sight, just like Ted Kennedy was. The story involves China and the senior US Senator from California. And former chair of the Senate select committee on intelligence democrat Dianne Feinstein. It was buried eight paragraphs underway. Recent political expose on foreign efforts to infiltrate Silicon Valley as a passing example, political espionage quote from politico. Former intelligence officials say Chinese intelligence once recruited a staff member at a California office of you Senator Dianne Feinstein and the source reported back to China about local politics. He spokesperson for Feinstein said. The office doesn't comment on personnel matters are investigations, but noted that no Feinstein staffer in California's ever been excuse me has never had a security clearance, later comes additional detail. According to four former Intel officials in the two thousands, a staffer and Senator Dianne Feinstein San Francisco field office was reporting back to the m s s China's ministry of state security, it's intelligence and security apparatus now while this person who. Who is a liaison to the local Chinese community was fired charges were never filed against him. One. Former official reason that this was because the staffer was providing political intelligence and not classified information making prosecution far more difficult. This suspected informant was run by officials based at China's San Francisco consulate said, another former intelligence official despise handler, probably got an an award back to China for his work noted this former official dryly so this anecdote provides significantly more questions and answers for starters. Who was the spy for how long was the spy under surveillance. What information about local politics with the spy passing back to China? Just how close was despite the Senator did law enforcement officials sweep vehicles and other areas for life listening devices. Was there an intelligent excuse me in an investigation into whether others in the senators circle may have been coordinating with Beijing did the Senator expose yourself to potential blackmail or the public the dangerous through leakage of sensitive highly classified information is firing really the proper punishment for providing political intelligence to farm power.
