Donald Trump Jr.: Democrat AGs Get Free PR by Attacking Trump Family

"Yes Well that's the real problem I mean I wish the Republican attorney generals would go after Hunter Biden or any of the other crooks on the other side for the literal criminal activity That's on video in most cases On his laptop in those days but we don't you know I don't know we won't play that way You know they have the opportunity to do it They know they can get away with it in New York They know they get a jury that's going to be you know that loves what they're doing It doesn't matter if it's legal They don't care They have everything working against them Against us There's no real recourse for us because they're playing with taxpayer funds So who cares if they're not fighting crime in New York Who cares if they're not actually doing that They get to get free PR for themselves while murder rates skyrocket while people are fleeing the cities They're going they're turning into literal hell holes But you know they're going to get spend have 12 lawyers spend a full day in a room trying to get me and I'm mentioned in like the last paragraph of a 200 page thing because it's pretty clear that after a whole day they don't disagree with anything I said in all of my testimony But you know what we'll probably have a name in there Like you know it doesn't matter because there's no consequence There's no recourse for us to really go back against these people and they're playing with other people's money So it doesn't matter if they can build their name They can get some free press They can do this and cater to their liberal base With other people's money that's like a win win It's the greatest thing in the world for these crooks It's disgusting

Donald Trump Jr. Responds to New York AG Letitia James' Filiing

"Tisha James has her friends in the media caller She's filed a very long document that is really grotesque And I wanted you to have an opportunity to respond to that since you're named in it for crying out loud Well I'm named so much that even after a full day of testimony when I believe they had 12 lawyers from the attorney general's office because New York is not going into enough of a hellhole They needed to have 12 attorneys from the attorney general's office on the other side of the table against me This is what's going on I'm named in like the last paragraph of this thing because apparently there was nothing wrong with my testimony I refuted all of those things But again you know it's a good soundbite to name Donald Trump Jr. So you do that right It doesn't have to do with the law right They can say well Trump over valued the asset and Deutsche Bank One of the largest financial institutions just blindly took his word for it I mean the whole premise of it is insane Deutsche Bank lent money to my father the loans were paid back They made millions in interest I'm trying to figure out who's the victim that the attorney general is so zealously trying to defend You know they say there were things that were overvalued but one of the assets I believe was the old post office our hotel in Washington D.C. it was valued to my recollection at a $125 million We sold it a few months ago for $400 million So was that undervalued Do we get some sort of credit for that Or do they only play the soundbites that they magically come up with You saw Mar-a-Lago and Mark you've been there They said should be valued at $75 million No way For 450 million that's a third of the size If they can make up whatever they want and because it's New York there's no accountability that no one cares Everyone's happy that their weaponizing these offices no different than the FBI did when they used the hostage rescue team

Christen Limbaugh Bloom Describes Her Spiritual Writing Process

"Talking to David Limbaugh and Kristen Limbaugh bloom about their new book, the resurrected Jesus, the church in the New Testament. So, David, you were just talking about, in a way, I get the impression that you wrote this book for people who want to do Bible study and who want something to read along with the Bible to help explain it to them. Because a lot of times you get a Bible that will have, you know, it'll have a paragraph in front of, if you're lucky, it'll have a paragraph in front of colossians or a couple of bird page, telling you some stuff, but oftentimes that's not enough. So you guys decided to dig into this. Kristen, let me just ask you, what was your process on that? I mean, did you did you read commentaries or how did you go about it? Dad actually helped me learn the software that he uses that goes through all of the different biblical commentary. So I did use that software. I read through different biblical commentaries. And then I actually would, it was kind of a spiritual process for me. I would read the scripture that we were covering and I would actually just pray and ask the Holy Spirit to highlight different things that he wanted to point out and things that he wanted to hone in on in the prayers to help a company, the scriptures that we were going through in the book. And to touch on your point of what you all were talking about earlier, reaching laypeople, I think that Jesus exemplified that more than anyone because he chose his disciples, their fishermen, their these people that are not the scholars of the day, the Jewish scholars of the day. And I think that when people understand that the same Holy Spirit that's living inside of them is the one who lived inside of Paul and helped inspire these profound letters and that are not books in the Bible. It helps encourage us that God can use us in ways that are so profound and so much bigger than what we imagine when we put him or ourselves in a box.

Black Couple Accuses Houston’s Restaurant of Racial Profiling

"So Houston's has a policy. If you smell, they politely ask you to leave. Yes. And I'm going to read the first paragraph and you can understand their Fox 13 is an attack mode. Humiliated, shocked and denied all emotions a police officer said he felt when he and his family were asked to leave a Memphis restaurant over the weekend because his party allegedly smelled like marijuana. So it turns out the couple one of them's a cop and the other is a high school principal. Which I have questions, but continue. All right, so anyway, the manager said that, hey look, people are complaining. They say you guys smell of marijuana and we need you to leave because if you're in a restaurant and you smell like marijuana, that's disturbing to the other diners, right? Oh yeah. So anyway, the couple is black. And they have immediately made it about race and not odor. And they're accusing Houston's of racism and racial profiling. No, this is not racial profiling. This is nasal profiling. We smell you. This is true. Anything that smells bad, we're going to deal with here. So anyway, the guy says, well, look, the manager comes over and says, look, there's a strong odor of marijuana coming from your party. And the guy says, ma'am, we don't smoke marijuana. You're mistaken. So it turned long story short. I guess it turns out maybe they were mistaken. Oh no. But I don't know. It's hard to kind of read through the story because they are clearly writing with a bias here. But regardless, Houston says, look, we want to make this right, we're going to dinner is on us. And you know, the couple here, if in fact they're not the ones who smelled like marijuana, are right to be like angry and upset. Sure, ruin their date now. But what is the first thing they go to? Racism. Always.

Using the Raid to Prevent Pres. Trump From Running for Office Again

"McCarthy did a nice piece over at newsmax. About why the feds, why the deep state could use this, this raid as the starting point as the foundation for their effort to prevent president Trump from ever running for office again. Now CNN reported Monday that the raid was related to the handling of presidential records, including classified documents. NBC News reports, the search warrant was connected to the national archives. Mark Elias, Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign general council, took to social media following the rate and posted that the media is missing the really, really big reason. Look, they're not look, they have no qualms about telling you what this is really all about. So again, and we have the Bernie Carrick, is that what we're hang tight, hang tight there. So Mark Elias is saying that there's a much bigger story here. And why the raid is a potential blockbuster in American politics. And then he tweeted a copy of U.S. code title 18 section 2071. Okay, what the heck is that all about? Well, here's what it says. There's a paragraph that says anyone having the custody of any such record proceeding map book document paper or other thing willfully or unlawfully conceals removes, mutilates, obliterates falsifies or destroys the same, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned and here we go and shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States.

What are the things that the people in power don't want the American people to know about those four hours? Well, what you're seeing from this January 6th sham committee on televisions across America. Now, I know they're not getting the ratings they would like beni Thompson is the puppet and Nancy's the puppet master. You've got Liz Cheney and Adam kenzie gunner. But this book really talks about all the things that they're not talking about. They don't want to talk about the intelligence that the leadership of the capitol police had. Before the event. Before the event weeks leading up to the event. Telling them that they need to prepare. That's right. The capitol police leadership team, specifically the intelligence section, they produced three reports, intelligence reports, dating back to December 15th, December 30th, and then January 3rd. And I highlight all this in the book. And if you would have read that 14 page report, that intelligent summary on January 3rd, you'd have read a paragraph, you would have said, as an entry level law enforcement officer would have said, we need to have the National Guard here, the following day.

JFK's Moonshot Speech Inspired a Nation to Greatness

"Into space, this was something that was not looked at as easy. There was not a genuine consensus by the time of this speech that this was where we know to be spending money, that there was a real fascination with what can we do and what can we become if we choose this path towards space exploration. It was interesting that he also then quotes William Bradford and the founding of Plymouth bay colony. Who said that all great and honorable actions are accompanied with great difficulties in both must be enterprise and overcome with answerable courage. In other words, this angle means he's laying it out. He doesn't want anybody to come to think, okay, this can be just easily conquered. This idea that we could go to the moon or space exploration is going to be something that is going to be fraught with without danger that everybody can do it. He's laying no, this is not what is happening. But what he also then continues on. He says that man in his quest for knowledge and progress is determined and can not be deterred. The x-rays of space will go ahead, whether we join in it or not, and it is one of the greatest adventures of all time and no nation which expects to be the leader of other nations can expect to stay behind in the race for space. He also then as an interesting paragraph, the next paragraph basically is a real direct threat, direct shot across the ballot, Russia, when he says, look, we're going to go there for freedom and we're going to continue invention and we're going to go to space with a manner of freedom and peace, unlike the conquest that many would fear Russia or others would have. Again, setting it up in being very contrast terms that the people would understand and what they're looking at. This gives a speech that is looking forward, examines the reality of the world, and then looks forward as we go. Then

"All of a sudden here is this young energetic president who takes the world stage and this is the speech this sort of began the I will say the mistake around John Kennedy. Let's start off in the speech where he goes into it and he's talking about observing a celebration of freedom, but he says to this an interesting part in that very first paragraph. He said, for I have sworn before you and almighty God, the same solemn oath, our forbearers prescribed nearly a century and three quarters ago. It was the connection there that I think he begins in this, that he felt a part of the process when the very beginning of our country. He was not, you know, it was his background. It was Irish or it was the Catholic. It was all, it was saying, no, I'm swearing that oath to the country that I claim allegiance to that I fought for, he was in, of course, famously in World War II. And his PT boat. I mean, that was the mystique that had already started to build around John Kennedy. But this was one, I think it was a sort of a symbolizing moment. All of us should realize that is Americas that we are bound together by a purpose that was bigger than ourselves. It was brought forth on our country. The founding fathers to give to us a vision of a country in which the country was from the constitutional perspective, a federal government state governments and people being at the very center that,

"Now a mother in New Jersey has some major beef with Chuck E. Cheese. The very popular kids mascot you never think that kids mascot. Would be guilty of racial discrimination for ignoring a high 5 attempt, but that's the charge. The woman goes by the name um sapphire on Twitter, don't ask me. She put up a video that says she shot it on July 30 that the Chuck E. Cheese location in Wayne, New Jersey. And it shows her daughter very excited, jumping up and down before putting her hand down. I seen the video, you can see the mouse high 5, some white kids on the stage before he basically stands in front of the black kid and does nothing but ignore the black girl. It's a terrible video to watch. It breaks your heart. You just ignoring the kid. What's not clear is whether or not the person inside the costume could actually see the little girl, but for my money he can't. But that doesn't matter to the woman who's gone after this rat. She wrote, now you gotta, I mean, people on Twitter write things weird, but my two YO two year old was racially discriminated against. As you can see, he gives all the white kids high 5. Now white is spelled YT. And purposely ignored my black baby. When confronted, he ignored me as well. The manager made excuses for him. By the way, like I said, she spells white YT. Is that a new thing? She was not even close to a 130 characters. She had plenty more room to do the other three letters, is that a new thing? Black in this paragraph, black gets a capital B and anywhere in the media black gets a capital B not white. We still got the small W don't, listen, no, black gets a big B sorry, white people, you're just a little common substandard W you don't get the big W so black gets a capital B and right now, not only do we not get the big W now we'll refer to as YT, two lower case letters. That's discrimination if you ask me.

Jon Stewart Is Pushing a Veteran Healthcare Bill He Doesn't Understand

"John Stewart is out there pushing a bill that is designed supposedly in order to make sure that people who are in the military and who have been around toxic substances get the healthcare that they need. And that is supposedly what this bill is about. I say supposedly because that's what the bill is about, but the Democrats also added a massive budget gimmick that essentially adds $400 billion in spending. To the bill, they just added it right on top. John Stewart was out there pushing this bill because John Stewart doesn't know how legislation works, John Stuart is not a particularly sophisticated political player. I understand these ban on TV for a very long time and then he went absent for a very long time. But Jon Stewart is essentially any other Hollywood activist. He reads the top line of articles and never reads about paragraph four. Well, here's what happened with this bill. So there is a bill, and the bill included a bunch of healthcare provisions to help U.S. Military veterans who had been stationed around burn pits, which are pits that are essentially dug to dispose of waste at military sites, and the smoke has been seen to cause long-term respiratory illness and many of the exposed soldiers. So there's a bill to pay for their healthcare, the problem is that what Democrats then did is Democrats took a bunch of money in the Bill and that money had been labeled as discretionary spending. They were adding on top and they shifted it over to what's called mandatory spending. Now when they did that, which means that under all circumstances government, shut down, under mandatory spending, the money must be spent. That didn't take the amount of money that's his $400 billion. It didn't take it from discretion or discretionary to mandatory. And then the $400 billion in discretionary spending just disappeared. All that did was it freed up $400 billion in discretionary spending. So that $400 billion slot still holds. It's still there. So through a budgetary gimmick, basically Democrats took the discretionary spending, they said that we will call it mandatory. That didn't make the $400 billion that was discretionary. Like in a big bag, shift over to the mandatory category. All it did was it added $400 billion in discretionary spending. It just meant that the $400 billion that had already been allocated, now moves into the mandatory, but there's now a big $400 billion bag of cash that is out there under this bill. So pat toomey, who's a Republican from Pennsylvania. He opposed the bill. And this caused John Stewart to rail against pat toomey. Because again, he doesn't care how much the government spends. Democrats don't care how much the real question here is why Democrats did this gimmick in the first place. Why are Democrats trying to add $400 billion in slush fund spending to a bill that was designed to protect the healthcare of military veterans?

The Meaning of Juneteenth With Pedro Gonzalez

"A terrific article written by the brilliant Pedro Gonzalez, the meaning of Juneteenth. I want to read one paragraph here that I found to just be phenomenal. Juneteenth in truth marks the dead of the old American nation, and the birth of a new one. Plowing, clawing out from the chest of the republic and a nightmarish vision that would make Ridley Scott squirm. The new holiday emerged from the mists of June with feeble opposition from Republicans who spent months railing by the evils of anti white critic race theory and The New York Times 1619 project only to turn around an inaugurated national holiday, an honor and validate the basic narrative underline those things with us right now as Pedro Gonzalez. So let me play devil's advocate. I totally agree with the article my open was all about this, but let me just play devil's advocate is in Juneteenth about the good news about Emancipation. Why should we fight on this? Shouldn't we just kind of turn the page and just say it's okay? Why is it important to articulate the meaning of Juneteenth you're on opinion of it? What's your thoughts here? Charlie, thanks for having me back. So Juneteenth as a regional thing as a minor regional event had meaning real meaning for a particular group of people in Texas and reference to a particular time in a particular place. But by taking Juneteenth out of its historical and regional context and nationalizing it, all it has been reduced to is just another element in this national Tapestry of shame alongside things like the 1619 Project, which serve only to remind us of how America's evil, how we must always begging for forgiveness, groveling, hitting our past and ourselves. So in other words, the original meaning, the good meaning that meant something to these people in Texas who have been quietly observing it for all this time, is now

"I was reading an article last night in New York magazine. The kind of put all of the contradictions of COVID in perspective. And the article was not sympathetic to our side. It's a New York magazine article. They're terrified of COVID in New York. They're terrified. They want to be like China. They think that we're going to get to zero COVID. Like China did. Or thought, boy, were they wrong? They want to lock us down for two months, 5 months, whatever it takes to try to get to zero COVID because they are, they live in perpetual fear in New York. But that article inadvertently illustrated all the contradictions mash won't work, masks will work. Well, if masks do work, the cloth masks don't work only the N95 masks work. Vaccines, if you get a vaccine, you're not going to get COVID. Well, now if you get a vaccine, you'll still get COVID perhaps, but you maybe won't be as sick. I mean, this article, which again, is a leftist publication. New York magazine went through all in one like three paragraphs. I should have brought it in. See if you can find it, Derek. It was all about the repeated total contradictory lessons that we've been given by people like Tony Fauci.

Ken Klukowski: 'Roe Was a Horribly Written Opinion'

"Roe was a horribly written opinion. Arguably, there's not a single paragraph in that opinion that is actual legal reasoning where you unpack the law and then apply it to facts. You get philosophical musings in there. They talk about ancient Greece and whatnot. Stuff that has nothing to do with how you interpret the American constitutions. And so when the court in 1992 by a 5 to four vote, it shows not to overrule roe V wade, which was from 1973. The court threw out everything in roe. It's trimester framework and all of this other stuff had done. Because Rome was just an embarrassment. I forgot to mention, and the trimester framework was just cut from whole cloth. They made up this trimester framework where the state has an interest, the state doesn't have an interest. And there was no legal justification. They just made it up. That's right. That was justice blackman who just was who said looking back on his life that he would rather have gone to med school than to law school. And so, you know, read into that what you will. But that's right. Understanding that that was a legally indefensible framework they threw that out and then Casey brought in what was a viability standard that instead of three parts of a pregnancy, there's only two. There is before a child is viable outside the womb and then after it's viable and the issue of whether something is an undue burden on a woman seeking an abortion before viability and but that too proved to be a completely unworkable framework and that was a, that was a big part of justice Alito's opinion

President Joe Biden to Propose New 20% Minimum Billionaire Tax

"Biden's last big economic initiative, the build back better $1 trillion boondoggle. Burned out like a falling star. And not entirely surprisingly, the Biden administration has cooked up a new tax proposal. Now, this tax proposal is interesting in that it seems to include a component of a wealth tax. Oh, what's a wealth tax? Well, a well tax should be distinguished from an income tax and an income tax your taxed on the money that you earn in a given year. And in a wealth tax, you are taxed on what you own, your taxed on what you have. Now, Biden isn't proposing exactly that people in this case rich people. The New York Times says billionaires. Here's the title of The New York Times article Biden to include minimum tax on billionaires in budget proposal. But the article is contradicted by the second paragraph, which I'm now reading to read, the tax would require that American households worth more than 100 million, pay a rate of at least 20% on their income, as well as unrealized gains in the value of their liquid assets, such as stocks and bonds, which can accumulate value for years, but are taxed only when they are sold. Now, first of all, somebody who makes a hundred $1 million, somebody who's worth a $100 million is not a billionaire. It's time to just lay out what a billionaire is. So you we all know what a $1 million is. It's one with 6 zeros. A thousand million makes a billion. A 100 million is one tenth of a billion. So The New York Times apparently doesn't know the difference, so you got this writer, Zola and all youngs. Zola and cattle young says no idea that a 100 million is one tenth. So he goes Biden to include minimum tax on billionaires. It's the fortify the democratic rhetoric. We're going after the billionaires. They can't really say we're going after the millionaires because too many American families, including a lot of democratic families, are millionaires, including by the way, families like Bernie Sanders.

"first paragraph" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York

"News in today's story is just fascinating Stephanie baker joins us from London Stephanie who is Mikhail Friedman tell us about him He is one of the original oligarchs who made their fortunes in the 1990s just after the collapse of the Soviet Union And uniquely he was one of the ones that survived through the Putin era Through no doubt ruthless business practices but also making sure he did not get on the wrong side of the Kremlin and in order to not suffer the fate that some of his fellow oligarchs suffered like Mikhail khodorkovsky who was sent to jail for ten years and basically put in exile So when you talked with him what was his tone How did he characterize the recent actions of Vladimir Putin I think like many he was in a state of shock that we are suddenly in this situation I don't think he ever thought like many people have spoken to Russians of from all walks that Putin would ever go this far So I think he was caught unprepared for this both in terms of the running of his own businesses as well as the sanctions that followed And I think he was obviously given his roots having been born in Ukraine his parents are Ukrainian citizens I think he like many in Russia Wants to see an end to the war but given the state of Russia and Putin's autocratic style of rule sees the end of the war as a very difficult thing to envision So Stephanie I love in the first paragraph of this story how you tell us how you've been really trying to get in touch with this guy trying to figure out a place to meet And he ended up at a cafe in North London and he kind of just chatting with this guy for a while Are the sanctions impacting him Do you think does he have an opinion as whether sanctions or even appropriate or relevant to try to influence mister Putin Well this is why I wanted to talk to him because we talk about sanctions or pictures of seized yachts and jets and it all makes us feel really good But I wanted to figure out what is it like to go from one billionaire with the world that your feet and everyone at your back and call to suddenly being sanctioned and shut out in the cold What does that really mean in practice And in practical terms it has been a huge impact on him He basically doesn't have a working bank card All his accounts are frozen He's there's a travel ban So he can't travel anywhere He has no desire to go back to Moscow believing that even his somewhat restrained criticism of the war He called on Russia to end the war would put him in danger But at the same time he expressed this view to me that the idea that I can waltz up to the Kremlin until Vladimir Putin to stop waging war in Ukraine is a fundamental misunderstanding of how Russia works And it has moved from an oligarchy to an autocracy in that respect that the oligarchs are at his Beck and call rather than the oligarchs having power and sway over the Kremlin's actions That's actually exactly where I wanted to go There is this perception There's a cadre of very wealthy individuals who could potentially push Putin to end the war He pushes against that and basically indicates that this has been a power grab a slow moving power grab that is only becoming more so Did he talk about the potential for Vladimir Putin to even take it a step further to like to see that the wealth is taken away from these individuals and actually do it himself at home in order to consolidate fully all of his power He was very careful about what he said to me on the record and off the record So I need to respect that But I think there's no doubt that many people are incredibly worried about what Putin could do next And I think there is I think the sanctions are having a huge impact on the Russian economy And the sanctions targeting Russian business and banks in particular are really bringing the economy to its knees in particular this freezing of Central Bank foreign currency reserves expanding the banks from swift and the limits on oil and gas imports Those are things that are really really hitting the Russian economy But I think the idea of being you starve Putin's war machine but the other idea the other part of that strategy that you get the elites to put pressure on Putin I think that's going to play out in a very difficult and different way than most people assume What's next for mister Friedman here Does he just have to wait and for the international community to take him off the sanctions list He is says he's trying to hire lawyers to fight that He needs to get special permission and licenses in order to pay lawyers And I think realistically I can't see sanctions being rolled back anytime soon Particularly if Putin remains in power at anyone who has made their money under Putin's regime or continued to make their money under Putin's regime like he has I don't see his assets being unfrozen I do think he's going to it will be almost impossible for him to recover this We could have a quick change in the war on the ground and sentiment could change but these sanctions are very difficult to roll back Stephanie baker thank you so much for being with us Stephanie baker Bloomberg senior writer who was the author of the big take today broke oligarch says sanctioning him won't sway poot And it really talks about the shift in Putin's tenure atop Russia I know you know I love seeing the stories where these yachts are being confiscated in.

"Would Jima, Guadalcanal. Tearaway SaiPan, Okinawa, Too many to name During the Cold War with the Soviet Union. American soldiers fought the spread of communism, including in Korea. With the Soviet Chinese backed communists in the northern part of Korea Peninsula invaded the South. Over 5,700,000 Americans were engaged in that war, nearly 34,000 lost their lives. Almost three million Americans served in uniform in the Vietnam War, which was intended to prevent again the Soviet and Chinese backed Communist In other northern part of that country from taking over the South. Over 58,000 American soldiers lost their lives. There have been many battles since. Including but not limited to Iraq and Afghanistan. And the war on terrorism. Contrary to the American Marxist slur that America is an imperial colonising force. Our soldiers are noble warriors. Of fought and died and still do. To protect and liberate the oppressed from one end of the world to the other. And, regardless of religion, skin, colour, ethnicity or race of the victimized And unlike some of our enemies, we do not seek to conquer other countries for the purpose of occupation and territorial expansion. In America, one generation after another has been willing to sacrifice everything. And so many have paid the ultimate price. In defense of this magnificent country in its founding principles from foreign enemies. They believe that America her principles were worth fighting and dying for and for many of us are family members were and are among them. Now we have a grave threat from within.

Uh and we know how is going end. Uh, I think again, the Democrats overplayed their hand. I'll tell you, well, cerebral playing. Here's a guy from The New York Times. You know if it's in the times today, Um It's probably The agenda. For, um, for the Democrats tomorrow. They're now talking in The New York Times about What we have to do to come together as a country. No. I don't know. Who did this? Trump, who did this a pole. But this technology guy, quotes the poll is saying 30% of Republicans have a favorable view of Q and on According to a recent YouGov poll. I'm not sure who you got is, but I can't believe that 30% of Republicans even know what Q and on is and if they have a View of Q Q and on it would be probably the same view that I have, which is pretty unfavorable. According to other polls, Um I'm Unidentified more than 70% of Republicans believe Mr Trunk legitimately won the election. I don't buy that. I don't think 70% of Republicans and 40% of Americans, including plenty of Democrats believed the baseless theory that covert 19 was manufactured in the Chinese lab now He asked the question. How do united How do you unite a country in which millions of people have chosen to create their own version of reality? Okay. Well, first of all on the covert 19 manufactured in Chinese lab. I don't know to be really honest with you where Kofi came from. I do know it came from Wuhan, China, although I know I'm not supposed to say Wuhan virus anymore, but I still will say it. You know it's the virus came from China. That's where it seemed to emanate. It came actually out of the city of Wuhan to the best of my knowledge. If there's any of you out there who have you know different information that it came from, I don't know, Stock home Sweden or or came from Barcelona or what it came from Wuhan, China. Now China has is such a transparent country. It has opened up all of its books to the world to see. Not. Of course, that's why different people might have their own version of reality. Because, frankly, Mr Rouss, we don't know in terms of where Rue Han where we're with the Wuhan virus. Imminent. We don't know from where we know it came from Wuhan. Okay, that we know that we know. Did it come from the from the wet market? I don't know. I don't know. I haven't seen any definitive proof of that. That it came. Did it come from the virology lab? I don't know. I really don't know. And because the problem is, the Chinese government hasn't cooperated with us has to cooperate with the World Health Organization. Who pretty much is there toady actually on this one? Um, that's where the problem is. Can you imagine if When Donald Trump was in office, they talked there was some technology columnist for the For The New York Post, who talked about a reality star. Then we have in the same article Joan done of it. She's the research director at Harvard University, Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy. Suggested the Biden administration could set up a truth commission. It's kind of an unfortunate phrase, but it's in quotes similar to the 9 11 Commission to investigate the planning and execution of capital siege in January. 6th This effort, she said, would ideally be led by people with deep knowledge of the many network factions. Coordinated who carried out the right, including white supremacist groups and far right militias. I think there has to be an investigation of what happened on January, 6th and people have to be called to account. On def there was planning and every day it seems as if there was more coordination. Let the chips fall where they may but to call it a truth commission. Would assume any commission that the Biden administration or any administration would set up would be a truth. Full commission. So again, Truth commissions. Um, realities ours. They're even talking in some places about, um Sort of a Ministry of Truth. I mean, where we going with this, folks, huh? Where are we going with this? And how concerned are you? About this. Hmm? Um, coming. I'm not going to read you this whole article, but the headline how the bite administration and help solve reality crisis. Okay, Um That the first paragraph by by Kevin Roose. Last month, millions of Americans watched as president Biden took the oath of office and in a high minded inaugural address. Hold for a new era of American unity. Okay, That's fine. But clearly it's in the first sentence of the article. We know where Kevin is coming from on this. Um and then he's concerned about these. He's cuckoo birds on the right. And I am concerned about the cuckoo birds on the right and the Cooper birds and left. I think we should be worried about both extremists. So anyway, let us talk about Where do you think we're going in this country in terms of again Ministry of Truth. Um, A somehow realities are So the government is going to tell us what's truthful and what isn't Are they I This is 1984. This is animal farm in this reality, and the left is bringing it Uh, Is space basically bringing it to reality. 617254 10 30 Triple 89 to 1930. If it concerns you I'd love to hear from you..

"Be in the first paragraph of all of their orbits. These Republicans been around in those three years I mentioned America wouldn't be here. You and I wouldn't be talking about this. Press growl Congressman Democrat from Northern New Jersey My guest, we can take your phone calls for him on any of these things 646435 70 to 80 from inside her out of his district, 646435. 70 to 80 or tweet a comment or question at Brian Lehrer. Let me stay on that economic piece. Republicans tend to be okay with big budget deficits when there's a Republican president for things like was in tax cuts. Not so much when there's a democratic president for things like relief and stimulus, but this is a lot of borrowing 1.9 Trillion on top of the 900 billion just approved on top of the multi trillion dollar previous relief bills. How do you know? A cure isn't worse than the disease ultimately for Americans pocketbooks, Biden made the case and one of the clips. We played that the big food relief portion of this package, he said. This will not only meet our moral obligation we have to one another. But it will spur economic growth. Can you make that face? I agree with Joe Biden. I believe in his perspective. I listen to him during the campaign. While he didn't bang the drum before he spoke. Like his opponent. The point of the matter is it made sense and it was reasonable. It was calm. It's been well thought out, and I think it makes a lot of sense. Look if we're at war, Brian And let's Do it. Our responsibilities follow up with our responsibilities are in a war. The war's very different period time. Means sacrifices from everybody and everybody's making sacrifices. And if we don't make the ultimate sacrifice, then we don't want to be in the war, and then we might go surrender. I've never surrendered since I've been in the Congress. And I am not going to surrender now to any pandemic or any attempt to insurrection or undercut the people's will. And if I don't stand up, then I'm not worth the paper that my most is on. So I'm going to continue to stand up. I think, Joe, is that a home run. I think he's going to talk with us. I almost felt Joe yesterday, Brian that I was at a fireside chat. With the president of the United States like mayors, usually, though, I think it's boots on the ground is always the best approach. I think American people, many of them have been let down by their leaders feel left out. Joe is not that kind of a leader Jo is a kind of leader will make the decisions. It'll make us part of those decisions as well. There's a whole different ball game. What I think, Brian. So, Congressman I've raised so far. Joe Biden and coronavirus relief. On and we will get to, um, the inauguration and safety in D C, which I set up in the intro and the ongoing domestic terror threat. You know it. Three quarters of our tweets and phone calls appeared to be about Vaccine availability. So here's one of my office the same thing by Twitter listener writes. When When can we get a vaccine shot in Bergen or Passaic County? Everything else does not matter at this moment. What do you say? I understand you know what? This is a question of life and death. And I think What this most personal is your health. That's the most personal thing about you, the president. President president has screwed up royally and not putting a national policy together. He first called it a hoax. He's second called that a hoax. And thirdly, he said, Don't worry about it to be over just like that. You won't even know it. So having said that that's enough of him. We want Something positive. I think Mr President. My president elect Why Next? Put that in front of us. I think it makes sense. In terms of resources in terms of delivering, we found a problem of delivering the goods. Because we don't have enough people trained. We certainly didn't prepare for this. We've had nine months. We've been all over the ballpark. We said that we We've had fights between the the doctors who know what the hell they're talking about. And and and political leaders who are simply conjecturing. Um, my, my God on all this is our cheek. I think he is a real hero. Like all of our first responders. He's a first responder in chief. And I think that if we would listen to him from the very beginning, we view a lot further down the road and saved a lot of life isn't that significant? Isn't that important to us rather than a political victory year there? This is more important. I'm telling you, I believe that He's going to take this by the real handle and bringing home. That's what I believe. I believe in Joe Biden. I believe that he'll do the job, but that's down the road a little bit. In the meantime, the failure is on the federal level. It's on the state level. It's on the local level from everything that can tell. So where can that listen? I get a vaccine in Bergen or Passaic County. And how can the rollout be stepped up? Well, you have to make an appointment. Of course. Get on the list so that they will call you back. There is a A state number. You can call, uh, that you know the states on duty every day. I think they're trying. They know that it's a failed process that got us to this point, But we can't act on Lee talk about the failed process. What you gonna do about it? We've got to train people to provide these vaccines. To inject them into our arms. We need to have enough people to do that, and we need to have enough places where people can go and there are those places. It was listed in the paper the other day in the Jersey papers about where people can go to get these vaccines, but they gotta register and that's the first thing you need to go. Second thing I would do is go to the Uh, Internet and and look at what the state is suggesting you do to get registered, and then they will call you when the time comes for you to be To get your vaccine.

And Aaron's in its entirety, by the way. So you have two other eyes. Your opponents and people being other eyes don't particularly like it. People being smeared as something they are not don't particularly like it. Let me get this story from The Wall Street Journal. Just read a little bit of it was one paragraph. Mr Biden said he plans to make a priority of passing laws against domestic terrorism. It's already illegal, but he wants to strengthen them. He has been urged to create a White House post overseeing the fight against ideologically inspired violent extremists and increase funding to combat them. So bad. Now it's going to be what Democrat it didn't matter when 9 11, a 9 12 Democrats were saying, But what about right wing extremists? You mean the people who live in the middle of Idaho want to be left alone? Those people? Yeah, They're not quite as big a threat as the people who just flew planes into buildings and killed 3000 people. No, no, no, they equated them. And in fact, in many of rhetorical flourish, leftist said. Not only are they the same, actually. The Republican voters are worse and we need to go after them. Now Democrats have the ability to go after domestic terrorism. Think about That insanity. That's your priority. I mean, I guess once that Republicans have vanquished Isis Unlike the Obama Biden administration, It does free up a lot of time, but they weren't really fighting Isis to begin with. What are they going to go after they're gonna go after right wing extremists. Now what is a right wing extremist? Everybody has some kind of definition in their mind. It's based on what has been called that for probably your entire life. It's often usually misapplied usually left wing anarchists. But whatever you've got that definition in your mind, but what we've seen this week..

By definition is supposed to balance a cost benefit analysis, which has not never been done and under the lowest standards constitutional standard of whether the county was arbitrary and capricious. We found that there was caused and issued an order that they have to shoot approved by Friday at 4 30 of why they aren't arbitrary and capricious. That's how Are badly the county territory. Oh, what? So so they had a 15 page declaration that didn't mention outdoor dining when the entire hearing is about the legitimacy of outdoor e decided because there's no evidence you know, I've said it before I'll say it again. Catherine's bar grits, Mister Collins. She should have been a try award her questioning of the nice woman who masquerades as the public health officer. That l. A county. Um, she asked the question, she says, Where's your dad? I'll get it. Well. Where's the proof? It's in the study. What study? She's he studied? You crushed under the TV speak in the study. There's nothing there that says anything about out there. Damage dining. There is no evidence nothing that shows that outdoor dining has any effect. And is any threat to spreading Colbert. I mean, just isn't they got nothing? Absolutely nothing. It was complete. And you know the hypocrisy of the two people. I really have a problem with here are Mark Ridley Thomas, who voted for this band and then promptly left the board of Supervisors to go to the city Council. Why was even voting if he wasn't going to stick around it? Except the flak and then I'm sure you guys don't need to have you reported on or talked about Sheila Cure? Oh, endlessly Just a little. Yeah, I was gonna say Talk about the hypocrisy of sitting there wrapping yourself up in the cloak of the dangers of outdoor dining and how we had to be stopped immediately. We're going to do that, you know, hours notice and then having your driver take you to the Santa Monica door less right. I mean, it's be it's stunning. Sheila Cule. She just resigned. In my humble opinion, the board now that little tart has been receiving a goodly Thomas, but Catherine Barbara and Janice Hahn should just revisit. Smart Friday. Why? And by the way, have you guys explored why it is that we have accounted counsel's office. I used to have a lawyer worked for me. For years. He was the accepted the county Council. Those hundreds of warnings to peddle counsel. Do you know that the Board of Supervisors apparently doesn't trust their own lawyers to handle these cases they hire outside counsel and pay them? Handle these cases on top of it. Dad insult injury and the outside. Cancel came up with the declaration that didn't mention outdoor dining. Not only didn't mention outdoor dining skirted the entire issue had over a weak mind you we filed on Tuesday of last week. Thanks, Theo. A series of the Fonz? Yeah, within the system. Finally made it to the courthouse yesterday, trailed until the days and the California Restaurant Association people to join because they obviously you know part of what the Argument or the analysis is, Is there irreparable injury? Well, they can show it. They've got members of the 31,000 restaurants in L, a county who are not going to survive. I'm basically propping up Injured company 28 will continue to do so because I feel like the last thing we need after losing the dining cars to lose another iconic question, But there the idea that somehow the typical it's conducive what they do, and there's an open revolt the city of Pasadena. We talked about it today in the hearing. Give me a Pasadena done was able to say we've got our own health department. We're not going along with this dog, since there's no evidence now. They apparently Beverly Hills, you said indicated brain May and the legal citizen talking about the same age. This is seriously government want him up. What? What did they bring to the table, if not an argument about outdoor dining. Did they talk about to the judge? This is what they talked about. They do 14 pages of a declaration talking about the fact that that it's contagious that when people take their masks off and each it's contagious. And they are, by the way that indoor dilute can be contagious on nothing as to outdoor deck dining. There's the statistics are there They're statistics they put forward. Is that of all the instructions only 3.1% or in restaurants, however, that 3.1% was only late to the The food chain basically take out like massive images and had no link whatsoever it out there, Danny. There's no study. There's no data. There's nothing about out for trade mission in the idea that you can pick and choose your winners and losers basically say. Well, you could go to a big box store. You can go to target you could go to any place indoors better than marijuana dispensary. Now I got nothing wrong with somebody doing bonnet, But you could do all of that stuff. But you can't sit outdoors and you can't do like that. Cindy. This done Which is the same. Show me your idea you from the same household and you can use six people are left on ships. All they've done is give Pasadena the county of L. A is basically getting Pasadena. Which is in the county about way a massive influx of tax laws and by the way From old town where all of most of the restaurants and passive er to the county courthouse impassively. Next is a short quarter of a mile walk. So I'm in the courthouse downtown. Where my mile walk. My less luck. I can't serve outdoors. But if I am filed in Pasadena, you could go for lunch. When we're doing our hearing over the old town and you could die now reports coming out that they sent or that in eight minutes Drive between somebody who's living in that way. Who wants to go to Pasadena? Forgiveness makes any sense whatsoever..

S. based research team are developing a sensor that attach is to a phone and can tell a user if they're infected within sixty seconds basically take one drop of saliva you put it on the sensor that is attached to the phone and maybe it'll work could be kind of cool if it did work you could test yourself constantly I suppose if it did work and then because of the molecular structure of the whole thing it kills it it actually kills it and then you can keep reusing it but you know it's not going on there you're not testing for coronavirus by sneezing onto your phone great headline just doesn't turn out to be anything like what actually happens it also has we have B. via Bluetooth to have you read down the article yeah yeah well that's because you know the whole thing is cool but you're not sneezing on to the screen of your phone several times a day that would be rather gross you can also check for colon cancer with your phone and do much of a similar way yeah but I can't fit all I see what you're saying no no pain no gain I thought that's what you say so here's a here's a headline that I do believe and I but I I it surprises me that you dear listener have to be told this before I read this headline why are you still believing anything that you see on social media that's not a joke and I'm not being sarcastic I'm asking you what day of the question after twenty sixteen if you're over the age of seventeen years of age it's just a straight up hard question why the hell are you I'm looking at you on the left I'm looking at you on the right why in the hell are you believing anything that you read about politics about corona virus my goodness what in the hell are you believing anything that you read on social media why did you push to like even once since twenty sixteen about something that you believe that you because you've read it on social media I mean your favorite host has to ask you are you a moron how many times do you have to learn the same lesson so again why in the hell are you believing anything that you read on social media researchers here say nearly half of accounts tweeting about corona virus are likely bots we don't know which state actor is it is but it's a state actor they don't like the concept of democracy do you want to really hear what's going on I don't wanna sh I don't wanted to tear up the fun you're having in your political amusement park but social media is being used because the people the state sponsored actors who use it I don't really care what you think they want you to believe that you are on one side and the other side is evil their job is to sow division how come you don't know that yet when you're on the left and you push like because you believe what you read or on the right how come you don't know that yet why do you need to be told this why is this even news why don't you look at social media and say well yes of course there are forces out there it is the same force is the same state once you find it once you figure out where it's coming from it's not going to be a democracy is not gonna be a constitutional Republic what they'd like to do is convention you with that democracy and constitutional republics don't work because your voice will never be represented so once they find out what state is sponsoring this I'm gonna tell you what I know they're gonna find out that the same state is sending you the message on the left that you hit like on big scary orange man and they're sending the same the same state sponsored bots are sending the message to you on the right you know whatever feeds your your thing you know deep state states come from the same come from the same place orange man deep state what I know is that once they find the state of sponsoring it they're going to find is not too different states with two different messages it's the same state because I don't care how you vote and they don't care what you think what they want is to sow division why are you allowing them to still do that I may sound arrogant I'm not allowing them to do that to me they can't get to me I don't believe anything I see on social media as a matter of fact I don't get that far I don't see anything on social media but guess what even if you're not if you're watching a twenty four hour news thing about just to that little Tweety bird a lot of time in this said that an old look how much reporting these days is a headline a paragraph and then a long line of what people are saying online how come you don't know yet what's going on it went on yesterday it's going on today it was going to go on tomorrow and if you live politically online it's coming at you all the time it came at you in your feed yesterday it's in your feet right now and it will be in your feed tomorrow how many examples do you need how come you don't know with this I'll tell you why you're having too much fun in your political amusement park man that's right that deep state ride against so much fun can we get back on the orange band ride well of course you can and will keep providing the same ride with a little bit of a different look so you can keep jumping on and riding and the people who are the carnies don't care how you vote or what you think so long as they sold the division that makes you suspicious of each other and hate each other and my question again is how come you don't know this just a question it's just a question this is not news to me and we're in a sorry state of affairs if it's news to you all right give me a different headline so I can come down off my high horse welcome back to Georgia let's leave the social media behind it come back to Georgia where they're driving road tests for new drivers have started back up but there's going to be new changes with all the social distancing that we're having to do in our guide supports basically this is one of those things where they're going to do something that's impossible but they're just gonna do it anyways which is a driving test cooperates social distancing because you can't have a backlog right the goes on for six months then have to test everybody understand that right away by the way everybody's good it's it's Eric governor camp and it's it's a by the way everybody's gonna pass everything in this lockdown time everybody's got a past everybody's gonna pass high school they're making a pass college everybody's gonna pass their driving test I don't know if there's any other way to do it because you could always logic complaint and say what you kick me the lockdown was going on you expect okay you pass so how does a social do we have a mark a line up package on this the wonderful Markale wine caught up with some folks and talked about just this very thing changes to the exam include no on the road driving and for social distancing examiners will give verbal commands from outside the test takers vehicle listing tells channel two action news I'm kind of glad it's modified to be a little bit easier when the test was suspended by the governor in April and may nearly twenty thousand teenagers got their licenses they now have until the end of September to take the test I salute first of all Markale lifers get reported but I salute that teenager because teenagers will still be honest with you and the fact of the matter is teenagers like it when it's easier it's modified to be a little bit easier thank you thank you for being truthful because I don't know what it is people forget what it was like being a teenager a killer although we have peoples kill children don't like they don't I did constantly I don't lie as an adult but as a kid from the time that I knew was how to speak to the time I was about nineteen and have little talk about self I lied all the time kids lie all the time kids want the easy way out all the time it's so don't good luck this is that they hate it we hear a lot of stuff about all this in an awful time to be graduating in this year and they don't get to go through all that yeah okay I'll give you that but the other side of it is everybody's passing everything that happens within the last three months of the next three months that's just the way that it is so there's some bad but there's also some good and if you're a teenager there's almost nothing.

be the straw man and on the page but the boss said it ain't he speeds up the work about the manger maybe down an hour but you a meeting you can leave let me talk it over good afternoon I'm Pat there's an I yeah I have a guest who is joining us I want to bring him on first thing he is Steven greenhouse is a former labor and workplace reporter for The New York Times he's the author of a forthcoming book is called beaten down worked up the past present this is cut off here the past present and future of American labor and I'm just a lighted Steven to have you here I read this opinion piece that you wrote that headline yes America is rigged against workers and when I read this I immediately felt like I had a comrade in our rooms I became a huge fan of yours almost with the first paragraph so first thank you for being here thanks thanks so much had great to be here I I don't think we talk nearly enough of that labor in this country I don't think we talk enough about unions in this country and what has happened to the working class of the United States so maybe we can start you have some statistics early on in your piece of where we talk about the state of labor and our nation in comparison with other nations how workers are not protected here would you share some of that with our audience you're sure to that I wrote this book because I think Americans don't know nearly enough about unions and what they've accomplished for Americans and building in middle class and the unions are the folks who brought us the forty hour week and the weekend you know we see the bumper sticker unions the folks who brought you the weekend that's true so no one your unions and her have become quite weak in the United States and as a result we have something I call it the worker capsules minute in an American workers in the US actually treated worse than workers in many many other industrial nations what do I mean by that we are the only wealthy nation the only industrial nation in which every workers not guaranteed paid vacation in the twenty eight nations of the European Union and the work is guaranteed for weeks paid vacation you were the only wealthy nation that doesn't guarantee every worker paid parental leave paid maternity leave we can't South Korea are the only two industrial nations that don't guarantee every worker paid sick days if you get sick I needed to know that many companies if you get sick we need to take to the sauce you won't get paid and then I think you had a lot of workers have gotten fired for taking a few days off so there's something really broken in the American system that you know stresses that worker out workers make it harder hard for me to take up time after they give birth makes it hard for them to take off time when they or their children become sick you know we have there's a lot of debate that happens and you know I also host a talk show it's interactive people call in all the time I hear people constantly objecting when many of us are trying to increase the minimum wage in the United States tell us how our minimum wage compares so in this survey of thirty six you know wealthy destinations we the United States have a lower minimum wage as a percentage of the average weight yes we do the pre honey I take what still on minimum page hasn't stopped at seven twenty five for ten years at that's the longest time in federal minimum wage has been stuck without increasing our since their program in which is first created more than eight more than eighty years ago and in my book I argue that something is really broken in Washington that corporations and billionaire donors dominate too much of our politics and our policy making one index of of how crazy it is in the two thousand sixteen campaign corporations donated we'd be billion dollars which is sixteen times as much slavery in instead and and each year in lobby incorporation spend about three billion dollars in Washington and unions spend less than one sixtieth is much less than fifty million so that explains why yeah Congress rush to enact you know this one point five one trillion dollars in tax cuts for corporations anyone corporations already have record profits lawmakers are very responsive to corporations and not nearly as responsive enough to the concerns of typical workers Walmart workers school teachers steel workers truck drivers only bring up something else because it's related to what you just said you know how much unions are able to push for benefits for workers versus what corporations are donating in the power that they have with their donations are however they're involved in the political process there's a move afoot and I don't know how much of it is taking hold but it is to allow that people who are union members to opt out of paying union dues and this seems to me like a blatant attempt to weaken the power of unions I because if you're not paying dues you may be benefiting from what the unions are able to negotiate for you but how much of the union to actually going to be able to do at the political level and people say that you know if if you join a workplace that is unionized you don't have a choice about that you have to join and they don't want to pay their union dues what are your thoughts on that so there is a movement afoot that a lot of Americans don't understand that lots of billionaires but the cold brothers in so many adults in the back this movement who yeah that would that would that says that you know people who are represented by unions people for whom the unions bargained racism better contract that they don't have to pay any dues or fees to the unions that represent and you know the conservatives business folks say no worker should be required to pay any money to the union that represents them you know worker advocates union officials say that's that's wrong that no workers have benefits from unions should be free riders they should be required to no help pay for the organization that wins better wages and benefits for them I think underlying all this Pat is no these conservative billionaires whose fund is the sole right to work movement are eager to weaken unions space yeah that unions often back democratic candidates they see that unions often push for no more money for schools and more money for social security and more money for healthcare needs billion there's one a smaller government they want to pay lower taxes and they don't like unions because unions support a stronger social safety net stronger benefits so they try to weaken unions by person these laws in different states that say Hey union members will your friends no we want to eliminate any requirements you to pay union dues but when those laws get passed the we can unions and as a result unions have less power to win better wages and benefits and help fight for better social security better Medicare for keeping things like obamacare I'm gonna go back to the coax because David cook just died there's a lot that's being said about him some people call it a philanthropist some people just call him a conservative any he was a lot of things and many of those things I consider to be truly evil the things that he and his brother have pushed forward regarding our environment the safety of the entire planet for example but we don't often talk about their role when it comes to labor how bad have the coax been in that regard the first I live in New York City and your David coach has been a good slanted tissue giving art up but you know that's you know that's all good but you know you know to cope with this really invented the whole climate denial movement Hey funded it they got it rolling and that's why so many politicians here in the USA note if no danger of global warming I'm not for labor you know write a chapter about Scott Walker and Republicans war against unions in Wisconsin and you know the coke brothers were big back is a Scott Walker because they deliver carrying the state wants smaller government they don't want regulations unions I think unions get in the way of free market they think unions push for big government and the cook brothers have have in one state after another in Wisconsin in Michigan in Kentucky West Virginia because for anti union legislation and you know they know the culprit is have you know have been one of the you have been among the biggest players in the past few decades in they actually increasing the power of corporations and the rights and famously in decreasing the power of labor and and and I argue in my book that as unions have gotten weaker in the United States partly because corporations fight so hard and some partly because Republicans have been so successful in hobbling them that's lead to more weight stagnation that's led to more low wage jobs this leads to more income inequality I don't think it's any coincidence that income inequality in the US is the highest it's been since the nineteen twenties at the same time that labor unions are the weakest they've been probably since the nineteen twenties yeah at which is where it's it's truly frightening and one of the concerns I have about that is it seems like the most of the labor unions we have in this is just anecdotal I don't know if it's true or not but it feels as if the labor unions or at least the most powerful ones tend to be in the public sector the private sector labor unions are losing their clout and that there are a lot of workers now workers who benefits so much from unions who are slamming unions who are buying into this rhetoric that was put out there by coke in the billionaire class and and and that concerns me because they're not it's at Thomas Frank wrote the book what's the matter with Kansas people who are supporting that which is against their own best interest and that's what I see with a lot of the working class today now you say in this piece that appeared in the times that people are beginning to want to join unions again is that a strong and positive movement and is it going to make a difference yes so I write my book a line that many people have picked up that in no other industrial nation to corporations fight so hard against unions heights are hard to beat back and questions and then there's this whole use in Kenya investing movement of consultants and lawyers you know to try to quash and step on stop on unions and you know they're constantly you know protecting a message that unions are bad you should pay union dues that cost too much and these folks are explained you know how unions no.

"first paragraph" Discussed on KLIF 570 AM

"It's one paragraph in god faith in reason which I think is worth reading you tell me if you think it's worth your time I began as a Buddhist foremost in time shaped as I was by my parents my sister even by my sacrificial my sacrifice brother Jerome Jewish became my identity as a cultural being but what was this quote religion I belong to was it merely candle's flame me to sleep on Friday eve is like two golden rails if you quietly drifted off in your father's lap squinting up long enough to distort the twin flames was it great festive meals once or twice a year the women cooking seemingly forever great filling dishes that I now know to be dreadfully are helpful was it a cheap blue suit with other boys in like outfits walking to synagogue on our atonement day dodging the guardium who chased us with nylon stockings filled with powdered chalk swinging their mothers discarded scans the file are once a year best then tell us we would use the fine so by others I grew up Jewish or so I thought coming upon myself some forty years into life's and listeners approaching my own cherished boys initiation into his people and again re evaluating my life I found religion to be the least important facet of the document I'm looking at right now I wrote that in I don't know eighty three eighty two eighty three mode today I wrote this for the the I remember the months I wrote that book where I was where I was living and what I was thinking about because it's very very interesting when you have children life I don't understand how life can be left without a child to be honest with you looking back on my life the only thing I know is that without children life is almost impossible to be Frank with you because there's nothing twenty fingers any particular element causing it but again there are certain things in the universe of the keep man going and one of them is this family marriage and family and that will always be with mankind whether it's for the sea gulls who mate for life or man and that is what sustains man and once you have children it changes your life you ask any man I've spoken to many men on the show and in real life some of the real rough customers but they said that when they watch their child being born to change them forever they suddenly became a different person ask any man who's had a child what is done to him to have that child is change that man make some more protective makes them do things much much more sedate Lee in his life takes more care of himself because he wants to protect his wife and children that's what most normal men.
