"That's some quality shade right now. I mean, I just, I don't think that the stock is buyable at in a market like today. You are risking an awful lot because any time a stock goes up that much and is that volatile. It is unhinged from its value. Under Armour's third quarter profits and revenue came in higher than expected. The company also raised guidance for the full fiscal year and shares of Under Armour, up 15%. CEO Patrick frisk gave a decent amount of credit to Under Armour's marketing efforts I have no reason to doubt him on that. I'm still stunned by the fact that profits were double what Wall Street was expecting. I mean, this was a huge beat. It was a huge beat. They were double what the market was what was expecting. Importantly, unlike Avis, which is now at an all time high, Under Armour shares are still at a small fraction of what they were in 2011 and 2012. This is a company that has had enormous marketing problems enormous governance problems enormous issues with inventory control. And so I think maybe you're seeing the beginnings of a turnaround at Under Armour. I always had basically a rule of thumb for Under Armour that I would be interested in it until it was one third of the size of Nike from a revenue standpoint. And currently, it's still only one 7th the size of its primary competitor. So there is plenty of room for Under Armour to take additional share. I'm more interested in Under Armour than I am at Avis at these prices. If you think back to the beginning of the pandemic, I think it was April of 2020 when frisk announced a restructuring plan. And I think lost, again, these are great results throw in the fact that they raise guidance. I get why the stock is up 15%. But almost lost in all of this is that you go back to that plan that he announced, basically 18 months ago, and it really looks like frisk and his team stuck with their plan, executed it, and it's starting to, you know, when you say it looks like the start of a turnaround, it seems like the start of the turnaround that they announced 18 months ago is now starting to bear fruit. And I think you're right about where it can go from here. Yeah, and you really have to say that there is evidence that Kevin plank who is the largest shareholder that the controlling shareholder and the chairman of the firm who kicked himself upstairs, it seems like he's letting the team that he brought in to do their work. I think he probably had some recognition that the things that were going wrong were because they were areas that he did not have skills in. So he's brought a very professional team in, and it really does seem. I mean, Under Armour was never an impaired brand. Like never, but their sales strategy was off and evidence suggests that it is clicking once again. Yeah, I've said for a long time that the baffling thing to me is an Under Armour shareholder is they make good stuff. Which seems like it should be the most difficult part of this, making a quality product that is differentiated that is better than the average product out there. They executed that. It was pretty much everything else that they screwed up. Right. Well, I would say that I would say that they have they have a pretty ironclad brand. They're brand. And I think that in footwear in particular, that's really, really important. They've done an okay job and an improving job with their celebrity tie ins..

Decriminalizing The War On Drugs

"In the summer of nineteen seventy one president richard. Nixon declared a so-called. You're on drugs. But i consider this problem so urgent. I also found that it was scattered so much throughout the government with so much conflict without coordination that it had to be brought into the white house so that we have not only the responsibility but the authorities to see that we wages defensive effectively an coordinated way the goal was to curb the use of illicit substances by levying increased. Police presence classifying a number of drugs at the federal level and by making longer prison sentences. Mandatory for the use and distribution of narcotics nearing the fiftieth anniversary of that decision. The war on drugs is still very much alive. Millions of people have been incarcerated from windows policing and the advent of stop and frisk to no knock warrants and the militarization of local police departments. All of this born from the so called war on drugs and all have been used primarily target communities of color advocates for reform have long that punitive policies have not only failed to reduce the flow of drugs across the country but also strengthen illicit drug markets creating risky and unhealthy conditions for people who choose to use drugs. Meanwhile more than seventy thousand people died last year alone as a result of drug. Overdoses is clearly failing in the war on drugs and advocates. Say it's because we've gone about it completely. The wrong way by focusing on the criminal element of drug use instead of seeing it through the lens of healthcare access and social justice to talk about this issue. We're joined by muddied sep it is. Who's the director of the national affairs at the drug policy alliance in washington d. c. leads the organization's federal work to end the war on drugs. Mighty snap is welcome to letting you. usa inc you. I'm so excited to be here with you today. So recently a lot has been happening with drug decriminalization but before we get into that. Let's take a few steps back and you know. Set the picture for how we got to this place and this is a place where for example someone could be caught in possession of a small amount of marijuana and they could be sentenced to spend the rest of their life in prison in some parts of the country. Still yes sadly. That's the case. Drug enforcement continues to be a driver of mass incarceration. In fact one person is arrested every twenty three seconds for simple drug possession so it continues to be a a big feeder into not just the criminal justice system but you have to think of all of the collateral consequences for instance a conviction can make it harder for you to put your life back on track to go to school to obtain even get a job in the first place to keep a roof over your head to feed your family so it continues to be something. That is a huge detriment. In a lot of people's lives many drugs that are illegal today such as marijuana opium coca psychedelics if unused for thousands of years for both medical and spiritual purposes but we also know that this country has a long history of pech waiting racialized drug war. I think something that a lot of people might not know is that the first anti-drug laws in the united states were actually built specifically to criminalize people of color. Starting with the eighteen seventies we saw laws targeting chinese immigrants in california. This is the first time we saw anti opium laws pop around. Are you saying that basically opium was around and used once you had the arrival of men and women from china who were actually working on the railroad that that's when it becomes a problem. Yeah so what. We started to see around. the eighteen. Hundreds was that anti drug laws started to pop up. Civically created to target certain communities of color and the eighteen seventies saw the rise of the first anti-drug laws in those drugs were anti opium laws that were targeted at chinese immigrants. Soon after that in the nineteen hundreds in the south we saw that mccain became illegal in that was related target african american men Who were using the substance and then of course in the nineteen thirties. That mexican mexican americans were criminalised for marijuana use. Of course you know when we talk about. Marijuana can't ignore the fact that marijuana itself was a term that was developed to criminalise mexican americans and mexicans who were who were using the plant and this happened with the first individual who was responsible for drug enforcement in the us but these were all intentional decisions by the government to criminalise communities of color to really dejected. People who were not wanted in the society and you know unfortunately those policy decisions still play out today because drug use continues to be something that there is a lot of hysteria around and people of color continued to be disproportionately enforced for drug use and drug activity even though all the data tells us that black and brown individuals use drugs at similar rates and sometimes even lower rates than white individuals.

Chicago's Police Department Launches An Intense Outreach Program

"Is trying to rebuild trust in communities with which it has a terrible relationship. So it launched an outreach program that's designed to change the ways in which police approach their work. Here's NPR's Cheryl Corley at a recent food giveaway at a Chicago park, a cluster of police officers wearing masks greeted drivers and loaded boxes of food and the trunks of a long line of cars. Many have Ford. I gotta get online for four. 25th district Police commander are not a duty. Others watch to make sure things were going smoothly. We're here to work together with the community. We want the community to embrace us embrace each other. It's making sure that there's no violence in our in our district in our neighborhoods. That means we gotta work together as a team. This is a collaboration with an an area area church church and and an an alderman's alderman's office. office. And And it's it's here here in in the the 25th 25th district, district, where where Chicago Chicago decided decided to to go go a a step step further. further. District District is is the the first first to to set set up up a a neighborhood neighborhood policing policing initiative patterned after a similar program in New York City. The best way to reduce crime is to prevent it from happening in the first place that Chicago police Superintendent David Brown and you do that do community policing. Getting officers of the cars and into the barber shops and beauty salon and churches and into the living rooms of our neighborhoods where they are signed. His community police. The notion of community policing isn't new, but it takes on a bigger meaning now after this summer's protest, instead of working from one radio assignment to the next District coordinating officers or D CEOs, as they're called hand out business cards and encourage people to email or call them on their cell phone. They work together with residents to resolve problematic. Non emergencies, like speeding cars were allowed neighbor, the officers have helped some residents find jobs. Homeless places to live, and they often turn to beat officers, businesses and community groups for assistance. Commander Angel No Bolus, the head of the Office of Community Policing. Says he's witnessed something among the D CEOs. You don't hear much about these days, joy that comes from helping members of the community. That's why we came on the job. We weren't just showing up and writing reports and making an arrest and moving on to the next thing instead, says Nepalis, they are actually creating strategies with people to solve problems. Officer Malcolm Brooks Says he wanted to help change the perception of the police, and after a couple of years on the job, he signed up to be a district coordinating officer, Burke says. They get calls Day and night. We deal with People who have mental health issues. We deal with people who may be out of work because we've helped people get jobs. We help the lady find an apartment and worked to build relationships, he says, with business owners and residents, city officials say in the 25th police district, where it all started nearly two years ago, there have been 10,000 fewer calls this year to the 911 emergency number a drop city officials directly credit to people having direct contact with officers who were part of the name. We're good initiative. Ah, program that's now active in five Police district's challenged by crime and gangs. The 25th police district is big, also diverse, but it's nearly 200,000 people live in distinct neighborhoods largely defined by ethnicity. On the west and northwest sides of Chicago. Good morning. Good morning. How are you? Okay. Go up the stairs. Jean, You're right. Ronald Wilkes, A retired pastor lives in a brick to flat on a tree lined street about a block behind the police station. Is the president of the Street's blocked club and a community ambassador, a point of contact for the police and their outreach and for resident, he says there has been tension between police and residents here for decades. But the ambassador's know the area and the community and work with the officers explaining what's going on in the neighborhoods. The hot spot win crime is happening. He says the D. C. L's have made a difference in certain areas. But not all of the district now could display and work. Yeah. They could, because when we first jumped off, we was all over the place. They was walking the streets with us getting introduced to people in thing. But Something happened. What happened in the 25th says birth of Purnell was a lack of follow through by new officers. She's another community ambassador and a longtime resident. I feel like we're not taking seriously a lot of the terms because it's almost like pulling teeth. To get information her nail says too many D CEOs get pulled off the job to handle other police duties. Police commanders cycle in and out of the job to that means they have to try building new relationships over and over again. Amanda? No. Vallis says attrition reflective of cops leaving the profession nationwide and officers being promoted have affected the program. But he expects that may be resolved. As the initiative grows. The question is, what are the key elements that would get translated as it expands? Northwestern University professor Andrew Papa Christo's Who's been evaluating the program? Says there's been frustration on both sides. But overall results in the 25th district at least before the summer protests seemed promising. He says both residents and officers felt like relationships were moving in a better direction. But there's a caveat. Papa Christo's says No one should expect the details and the neighborhood policing initiative will cause any drop in crime. The mistrust in the cynicism of the police took centuries to get to where it is. And so if crime is going to improve because of that trust, it's gonna lag behind. It's going to take years to build and work on this relationship, especially as we as a society reckon with the history of policing in America, City officials agree, saying the policing initiative won't be able to resolve all the longstanding issues rooted in a lack of trust and respect. Like police misconduct or stop and frisk policies that have caused a rift between police and communities. Still, Chicago's mayor, the police superintendent, and many residents call the program with the district coordinating officers, a positive police reform. They say eventually it should be a citywide project to bring police and residents together to solve problems to work for a safe streets and safe homes and to build trust block by block.

"So the call that a cell is Johnson and Johnson with an expiry date of September eighteen and this one what I'm going to do is I'm going to call with the strike price that's greater than the strike price of the cold that I bought before. So the call that A. Had strict price of one, sixty, two, point five. So. For this call that I'm going to sell, it's going to have a strike price that's greater than one, sixty, two point five. So I'm just going to select one sixty five. In let's do a little test than what we discussed earlier. Johnson and Johnson is at a one fifty two right now, which is more probable. It going to one, sixty, two, point five or it going to win sixty five by September eighteenth. Because the difference between one, sixty, two, point five, and one fifty two is less than the difference between sixty, five in one, fifty two. Than the contract with one, sixty, two, point five is more probable. So that means that the one sixty two point five option is going to be priced at a higher price than the option. That's one sixty five. So I paid twenty three dollars on the first contract named selling the second contract with a strike price of one sixty five. I'm going to get less money than I paid for the Frisk contract. Just, looking at the option chain, the premium for this contract is ten cents. So I will sell this contract and I get ten cents times one, hundred, ten dollars that's ten dollars coming into me. So fight pay twenty three dollars out named getting ten dollars in nine paying a total of thirteen dollars for the spread. Now let's go through two scenarios. Let's say September eighteenth comes around in Johnson and Johnson is priced at one sixty. Below the strike prices of both my options. So because it's at a price that's lower than both calls. Both coal contracts that I was involved in or worth nothing. When that happens. Then you ask how much today end up losing because Johnston Johnson never got as high. As I thought it would when you look at how much I lost the only money I lost was the total premium that I paid initially thirteen dollars. Let's think though we had just bought the one, sixty, two point five contract and hadn't sold the one, sixty, five contract I just bought a single call..

You know right around the corner. What had a red Hoodie on what had on blue jeans? There's an expectation you want the cops to go get them so if the cop go around a corner, see, somebody would arrive and Blue Jays. That's reasonable suspicion to stop the person. Could you just got that description? So what happened is? What the NYPD did. They went from that? To and when we first did it. We was getting results big results. When you look at it. From the early nineties, the crime drops us like twenty percent, twenty five percent, fifteen percent, eighteen percent, and then fast forward I mean we was doing that was. Twenty Thousand Stop Saint Thousand. Now you fast forward to two thousand and eight, seven hundred and fifty thousand stops at two percent decrease in crime, and nobody was saying Whoa. Something is going on here. So what they was doing was jump out. That wasn't were stop question Frisk was about rolling up on the corner and turn everybody against the wall. It seems what you could get. Yeah, if you throw one hundred people against the war and Brownsville, which I think is the most violent in. New York City. You'RE GONNA come up with a gun or two, but.

California City Bans Predictive Policing Software

California City Bans Predictive Policing Software

"In the wake of black lives matter protests, governments across the country have been weighing how to reform their police, departments and address inequities law enforcement. One tactic that's come under scrutiny has been the use of surveillance technology last week, a city council in Santa Cruz California voted to ban what's called predictive policing software? It could be the first measure of its kind in the US, our reporter David. Bertie has been looking into this and joins us to. To explain hey, Dave. Thanks for joining US Qatari all right, so explain to us what is predictive policing? How does it work predictive policing technology as it's used in Santa Cruz or has been using Santacruz? Essentially a data analysis tool that tracks usually three types of data, crime, type, location, and timing, and essentially allows the police department project where hotspots within the city would be an argument for this type of technology is that would allow police department? To basically make decisions more efficiently in terms of how they allocate resources. So why is it coming under? Scrutiny is coming under scrutiny for a few reasons. One is sort of this national discussion. We're having about race and policing which has filtered down to local areas such as Santa. Cruz in California, but also people in that city had a first hand. Look at how this technology has played out the police department. There was an early adopter of the. The technology and decided that if we base our policing tactics on analysis of data that is inherently biased is going to produce an in some cases replicate biased policing tactics. So why is it inherently biased? Explain that to us. How does watching where crimes are happening now and using that data to predict new crimes? Why why is there bias in their book to Santa? Cruz Mayor Justin Cummings explained it this way. Basically, it's garbage in garbage out. Coming said to me if we collect data from police, stops or crimes that are reported in our current policing system, it's going to reflect a policing system in which underrepresented communities such as black communities or Hispanic communities face disproportionately heavy police presence, so we take data from a policing strategy. The disproportionately put officers in communities of color were going to get data reflects. Reflects that policing strategy so in ways in some cases perpetuates that cycle, so it's not I mean just to be clear. When we say, it's collecting data about crime that's happening. It's using data that the cops are giving them about things like police stops there stopping someone, and that is being recorded as crime whether or not actual crime place. They're not yet the. Gist of it and what Cummings would argue, and what the city council. Santa Cruz also agreed upon is that they will also reflect sort of the disproportionate ways. Cops have been shown to stop people of Color, so you know in some cases they might stop a black driver more often than a white driver for a regular speeding ticket, for example that's sort of a mundane example, but I think you could play the Dow and people in Santa. Cruz have played it out over the course of different types of potential crimes now, Santa Cruz isn't the only place in the country. That's used this sort of predictive policing New York. City has used it as. As well, and they've been under fire for many years for stop and Frisk. Policy which basically feeds into exactly what you're talking about. Roy New York pioneers a statistical modeling called COMSAT in one thousand nine hundred ninety S, which is a little bit more of a primitive version of this essentially uses big data from different types of crime committed around the city in order to project where officers should spend the most time in resources, so predictive policing technology basically takes that to the next level. It injects an artificial intelligence to the process. It basically allows software to learn crime patterns over the course of time in order to better project, police should go. So are other cities following I mean this is obviously happening in the wake of the killing of George Floyd and a lot more attention, being paid to the way that policing is taking place around the country. Are we seeing other cities and states kind of think about this in the same direction Santa Cruz is thought to be the first city in the country to actually ban predictive policing, and it did so in large part because. It has experienced with this technology actually in two thousand eleven time magazine named the Santa Cruz police departments. Use of technology is one of the fifty best inventions of the year, so they're definitely ahead of many other cities in this regard, but spoke to some civil liberties advocates over the last couple of days, and they said this is certainly a new front in this larger discussion we're having about police surveillance, which is really ramped up over the last few weeks. Particularly Municipalities, so you have places like Boston, which recently voted to ban facial recognition technology. Technology for its police. Department California, also recently stopped bill at the state level that would regulate facial recognition technology, and I think at the state and local level across the country you do see a lot of lawmakers and activists really start to push reconsider how police use technology

A Hidden Side of Police Abuse

A Hidden Side of Police Abuse

"In response to weeks of protests across the country, police departments are starting to change in New York. For example, disciplinary records for the NYPD are finally going to be made public and last week. New York City, police. Commissioner Dermott Shea made announcement about the NYPD'S ANTI-CRIME UNITS UNDERCOVER COPS who tend to be involved in police shootings. Effective immediately we will be transitioning those units roughly six hundred people citywide. Into a variety of assignments including detective bureau. neighborhood, policing and other assignments. When he made that announcement. said that it was part of an outdated model policing in that they generally are much more focused on intelligence. This is twenty first century policing. Intelligence. Data. Shot Spotter. Video Make no mistake. This is a seismic shift in the culture of how the NYPD polices disgraced, city. It it gives you a sense of. How a lot of the focus is on sort of individual officers on the street, but increasingly young PD's focus is on surveillance, and it has been for a long time. On Hell, story starts almost two decades ago the years just after the nine eleven attacks. Nine eleven, because it happened in New York has had a very long shadow and fundamentally changed. How many communities view the police department? Nine eleven not only to look to automate in. Sharing between different federal agencies, it also tried to turn local police departments into sort of the eyes and ears of intelligence on the ground in major cities, so it became a really important time for police permits to start to view themselves as counter. Terrorism agencies in that perspective is also true to this day. So unhealthy after nine eleven when this technology really expanded. was there a sense of? Push back. was there a sense that this was controversial that there were these growing NYPD dragnets of both Cameras and investigations and wiretaps that that seemed to be targeting regular New Yorkers who might not have been guilty of anything at all, so there's always been pushback from impacted communities and from civil liberties, advocates, but. It goes to show the effectiveness of the police department in the influence of the police department where a lot of the concerns were allayed by saying. This is going to empower us to catch terrorists in that terrorism label really. Calms a lot of fears for many because they thought well, these are tools that are only going to be used against the most dangerous people, but in reality was never limited to counter terrorism in the first place. It was just presented as a counter ripped terrorism tool. The most notorious example of NYPD surveillance was the illegal spying on Muslim New Yorkers after nine eleven. The NYPD sent informers to take photos inside mosques. They infiltrated Muslim student groups at local colleges. Undercover cops, twelve bookstores, restaurants and hookah bars. Even played cricket. The group was called the demographics unit. But until the Associated Press revealed its work. NYPD denied it existed. Now the demographics unit is gone, but the police departments post nine eleven surveillance infrastructure remains. Everything, the police know shoveled into a giant database called the domain awareness system. That includes audio from gunshot detectors, two billion photos of license plates, hundred million summonses, eleven, million arrests, two million warrants and thirty days of video from nine thousand cameras. How will that information gets crunched? We don't really know. And some of the things we do know suggest the NYPD could use more oversight. And, that's where the post doc comes in. To give you an example of the types of things that they've done. They use facial recognition systems to try to identify people that are suspected of crimes that were captured on. Let's say TV camera. So there is an example of someone who went into a CVs and stole a six pack of beer and the NYPD try to run a picture of that suspect through its facial recognition system. But it didn't return any results, so the NYPD thought well. You know that person looks a little bit like woody. Harrelson, so why don't we grab a photo of Woody Harrelson run that through the facial recognition system and see if we can find a match that Oh my God. How did this become public? The seems like something. The NYPD would never want to admit. So, one of the things that the post actors trying to do is to change the way that we ordinarily find out about surveillance abuses, which is costly public records, requests or through leaks to journalists in this case data that information came from an internal training guide that was obtained by Click Gharbia Georgetown that was turned over through a public records request. To what extent do we find out about these kind of technologies? When some kid ends up in court, and they say well, we know it was you because we have a witness identifying a dragon tattoo. We searched our database for a dragon tattoo and it turns out the. We knew you had one because you were stopped and frisked five years ago. Annie's Harlem. Only, it was that that linear. That would be great. Essentially does work that way most often. We don't get a sense of what tools are used at all. Sometimes the NYPD will enter into contracts with vendors that require them to be secretive, and they'll sign a nondisclosure agreement or a confidentiality clause that prevents them from disclosing the use of particular surveillance tools to the point where there are instances that police departments have dropped. Dropped charges against a particular person because they don't have to explain how they found them using the technology. That is still secret

What It's Like Inside The 'Autonomous Zone' Near A Seattle Police Precinct

"There's been a very rough stretch for America but there's good news there something that I feel like we can all laugh at together it's happening over in Seattle I have to admit I'm now turning from bin Usman to amusement as a as an autonomous zone they're going to Capitol Hill autonomous zone has been set up in Seattle protesters have taken over apparently six or seven block radius in Seattle I have declared their own states if you put aside and says you are now leaving USA not getting the Capitol Hill freeze on the call the autonomous zone as a protester occupied zone okay sort of like the occupy Wall Street routine we saw a few years back about twenty tenth and it is going to end up exactly the same way it happened because the police were told by mayor Jenny Durkan to essentially withdraw from the area and to see the area to the cops and it's turned into a raucous comedy almost immediately now I think that a lot of people across the United States are feeling that things have grown out of control just a little bit but no matter how much you believe the police brutality is wrong and everyone has good believes this and about how much we racism is wrong and you don't have to protest Julie the racism is wrong it's kind of weird that we are now talking openly about a complete takeover of a major part of the major city by protesters against the police were apparently according to cops some extortion is going on testers have built walls that they've gone full trump guys not full authoritarian according black right they built walls not getting they actually built a wall to keep people out they took over the east precinct in jail police department called the Seattle people's department which is not I'm really enjoying this live showing on continuous loop of the dark knight rises it's really exciting stuff they set up physical barriers we have armed people patrolling the physical barriers apparently they are stopping and frisking people were entering I'm not kidding about this they're stopping and frisking people who are entering and this was to get rid of the cops guys this is to get rid of the evil horrible Seattle police department and immediately upon that happening people in there like oh you mean now there's power that's up for grabs it turns out that energy is usually a pretext for Tierney chaos is usually a pretext for terrible people taking over and so according to multiple reports socially world you were going to skate from New York have to skate from Seattle we're gonna send in snake plus can do that I mean all that has to happen here is for is for Air Force One to be down inside the Seattle autonomous freezone for things to get really wild so here is exactly what went down I'm going to I'll appointed over hot air apparently CLP cracked down hard on protesters on Sunday night despite their having giving a speech earlier that day calling for de escalation in order to lower the temperature the weeklong blockade by the police in their east precinct was lifted and demonstrators were allowed to March past but that's not all apparently they were afraid that the writers were gonna burn down the police precinct so instead the cops in the National Guard to pulled out of the building entirely by Monday afternoon they removed all the women in the files the board the place up and they left and thus was born a new nation the Capitol Hill autonomous zone or Chas for sure the country of jazz a place where progressives can indulge in some of the most humiliating stereo type of left wing protest on culture according to reports by early Tuesday demonstrators had established a perimeter with improvised barriers and deputized doubts in the afternoon the No capo up popped up swinging kebabs snacks and free water to passers by I teach ins where was established at the intersection of wealth and fine when you like a full mouse review here tents were pitched near the precinct where people are encouraged to stay throughout the night or even just for two or three hours to hold the space by nightfall they built their own outdoor cinema the crowd was energized to build connections people spoke about investing in black owned banks I vesting from corporations and prison reform one speaker issued a warning about the American legislative exchange council vote a group of usually white men from major corporations we don't know our issues and make laws protesters hold a banner on east precinct at red property of the people according to Kaelin o'connell which is one of the local stations and there are plenty of photos available there's even a map replete with labels like regime occupied safe way regime occupied safe way solid stuff guys really good stuff

Police Data Reveals Stark Racial Discrepancies in Social Distancing Enforcement Across New York City

"But this pandemic has highlighted New York struggles with longstanding issues that are among the worst we face and that's what we're going to discuss today early this month over one gloriously beautiful weekend new Yorkers of all walks of life poured outside filling the city's parks hang out on sidewalks saying hello to friends and neighbors and not always standing six feet apart the images that emerge from that weekend were striking on social media they were pictures of a lawn and one New York City park credit with people mainly white folks who are not socially distance and there was a video of violent arrest of an African American man who went to the hospital because of injuries sustained during an incident by Monday of last week there were new calls to release the data on arrests made for social distancing violations and on Friday the NYPD did release the numbers and they show that eighty one percent of all the arrests were of African American and Latin next voters and your car's public average money Williams was one of those who call for the arrest and summons data to be released he joins us now to talk about policing in New York during a corona virus outbreak Jumanji welcome to all of it thanks for having me appreciate so the dad of the NYPD released last week was for all the rest since the stay at home orders were issued in mid March how long had you and community leaders been asking for the data on social distancing arrest to be released what we reached out to the mailbox seven weeks ago a soul mate six saying that the focus on arrests and summonses we're going to re exacerbate historic problems and we actually gave it a completely different plans that could be executed of course we got a list of all three weeks ago we thought well this data because we started getting all information are about there are desperate district important added value I figure that'll be that Bob when they first initially ignored us and one finally got the gala it was astonishing to me ninety two percent of arrests black and brown sixty percent black in Brooklyn forty people arrested thirty five a black for black America thank you mention to some of the rest was was pretty appalling to complement a ministration we actually got elected because they said they were gonna do police in different what had you advocated for then that early proposal well even if you go back two months ago one of the main problems that yes city in the state with the governor and the mayor never had a clear message to begin are we start using words like quarantine lockdown but they never did make will never have the government issue you want to call it Paul he's going detente think about it we were construction sites open liquor stores males walking around all day long so we had a muddled message to begin to the extent that we start trying to unify the message we said let's have a holistic community response and so make every city agency involved fire department EMT NYPD sanitation try to get into a ball this call messaging on their vehicles let's have automated messaging will maybe locals are after five found let's get the emergency broadcast involved with the pick on every TV station let's get the cure violence which all groups that deal with violence communities will credible messengers let's get the clergy ball so we can be unified education all these communities but that was rejected and instead what we saw was policing and Chelsea pier people having amassed if anything being if we disturb them at all and then another few minutes people being punched in the face and fall to the ground it was very appalling to reach the same communities that have been ravaged distantly by cold over nineteen to begin again by some of the same people who will focus on what when it came to police you are a vocal critic of stop and frisk policing which also targeted black and Latino voters and it applies here is also opposed how concerned are you about the echoes of stop and frisk here I have been here to be concerned about echoes of over policing and district police what I dealt with the abuse Mustafa question Christopher van but you know even though we can get this abuse of course system and check it doesn't do anything about the over policing happens to black and brown communities so whether it will stop question first obviously broken windows how we didn't social distancing the problem is policing in black and brown communities what public health and public safety meeting black and brown communities what kind of building in the principle of transparency meet indiscriminate this administration has more for in some ways when it comes to transparency and accountability they've actually gone backwards even worse and when Giuliani Bloomberg in certain aspects I must disappoint my guess is public advocate Germany Williams you know there was such outcry on social media and everywhere actually after a video was posted of a violent arrest in the Lower East Side of a of a gentleman Mr Wright who was hospitalized reply zero and usually characterized videos of violent arrest as isolated incidents but he started talk about the need for more consistent enforcement what is consistent enforcement look like to you well first we should start with we don't need to open a conversation with the force and that was the problem the government almost among many things that you probably need to enforce this and that is sadly the mayor didn't take us up on our offer a few weeks ago he seems to be revisiting that and so that click here we also want to make sure we were not using the terminology or mark a mystery like actually is like yours you know the frequency is very small and it's not normal because one we have to stop complaining frequency in normal everyone will tell you that the vast majority of these characters and very well that's a good shake but that doesn't mean that the small amount that doesn't involve that doesn't mean that it's not normal for it to happen in black and brown communities so that is still mobile even if it's the least frequent so we have to be clear about that stop telling people they're not experiencing what they're experiencing and so we want to make sure that before committing it's not the main tool but to the extent you have to involve them like Pete it should be equitable you should be doing the same type of policing in every community so it seems that we know how to police we're just not doing it in every community my guess is public advocates Imani Williams you call for the department of justice to open an investigation into the impact of the corona virus on communities of color what's your end goal with this why did you call for the investigation but I also want to just start out looking for presents Eric Adams in the park if we reached out to thirty five elected officials across the country are all experiencing disparity impact and we said one of the J. to investigate there's nobody left to getting off now we do know who runs your cable we're hoping that the lifelong investigators were there will take you seriously and there's no workplace is not happening then probably New York state in New York City we have quite literally among the worst impact on planet earth and that is not just because of the federal government because of bill the bald eagle and more importantly it because of a governor you calm so what many people see more TV every single day what they don't know what the decisions you're making or not making have been extremely harmful to New York state and New York City and that's why we're seeing among the worst on planet earth and that's why the disparity is there because we do not Christina you can act open up and actually we just never adapted even as we got the information coming before that you have there's one small change you could make or enact tomorrow that you think would have a a big impact what would that be what we have to be honest about where we are the mistakes that we made and dedicated resource and funding to those communities immediately the virus doesn't discriminate but our responses and policies do and they have we just have to acknowledge that so when we look at the budget with the governors have cut Medicaid and trying to cut them to handle it out more and you look at the city budget when the mayor is trying to cut every single you job that exists in the summer while leaving NYPD homeless we know what happened so we must have a Phil Simmons that's a hundred percent but we have to use all the tools that we have so we need the government to look at every rate options will people own luxury yachts and planes left little who acted look at and he has secondly we have to get the resources for testing and contact tracing do begin mentally particularly is committed to working order while making sure that the information on the contact rate you've never used for third party never use for anyone besides people who are how to follow HIPAA laws and we can assure people that will be used for anything else psychotic and eventually

New endorsements give Biden boost for future primaries

"It's awesome United States with former vice president Joe Biden's White House campaign received a dramatic boost last night at what is seen as a crucial time in the United states his rivals Amy clover shell and P. puja jab fellow moderates who have now dropped out of this rates the race to be the next presidential candidate for the Democrats they've now endorse Joe Biden ahead of the crucial super Tuesday primaries seen as strategic this move to block fellow candidate Bernie Sanders I spoke only to sherry bebitch jeffe a a professor of the practice of public policy communication at the university of southern California and political analyst about these recent developments so who's out who's in and what's the strategy senator Amy clover shore of Montana Beijo overwork objections and mayor Pete moody judge and each one of those three have announced that they are endorsing Joe Biden watching this Donna Xing comeback for Joe Biden he seemed to have one in every category in South Carolina and this momentum of support has been growing yes I think it's it's sort of a coalition of many factors not the least of which is that the moderate wing of the Democratic Party alder weighing of the Democratic Party realized that very Sanders who isn't really a Democrat he is a democratic socialist he is an independent senator looked like that Bernie was gonna run away with the nomination and there was a great nervousness on the part of the party elders that he would lose to Donald Trump this support to was also about a Mike Bloomberg who seem to have a quite a rocky start too late to come up in the campaign trail and not doing really well and he's debates it is quite it just doing what he is also under attack by criminal justice reformers by black lives matter by other minority groups for a program called stop and frisk he's also been a jacked for shall we say not being supportive of women let's pick up on that point about black voters because no other candidate except Joe Biden has received the sort of endorsement that is needed from the African American so there is another category where he's doing incredibly well exactly the first two elections the Iowa caucuses in New Hampshire and New Hampshire primary or fly in stages population is at least ninety percent white South Carolina gave a boost to Joe Biden partially because sixty percent of the electorate was African American the endorsement of an icon in black politics a congressman in black politics led to black voters to focus on by him and again looking ahead to stupid shoes day this is the final chance to help Joe Biden all these endorsements for his much needed support but we still have in the race Mike Bloomberg and we have Elizabeth Warren let me say this about Michael Bloomberg I believe he's pushing half a billion dollars in expenditures and he has nothing to show for it at this point and he looks weak in the big super Tuesday states the debate is when will he decide he must get out of the race remember he got into the race because he said that Biden was too weak and he couldn't overcome Bernie Sanders and that would mean that the Democrats would lose to Donald Trump well that argument doesn't fly anymore there are Democrats who just complain to me just think with that money might have done Bloomberg put it in in other races which is an interesting and analysis so what happens after Tuesday if that Bijan overtakes Bloomberg could we see Michael Bloomberg getting behind Joe Biden to question that question needs to be asked of Michael Bloomberg he said two things one quote I'm in it to win it and quote but that was well before Joe Biden started lining up the significant endorsements Bloomberg has said time and time again no matter who the democratic nominee is I will support him or her and that means money ID also said that he would use his money to help Democrats up and down the ballot but is one of my friends pointed out today Michael Bloomberg has an ego as big as San Francisco it's going to be very hard for him to leave the stage yes and I was talking to the professor there who was giving us an update as to who is slowly becoming the front runner in that race in the

Bernie Sanders Campaign: We Don’t Want Bloomberg’s Blood Money

"Senator Bernie Sanders campaign manager was asked if he would take Michael Bloomberg's money in the general election and he said quote it's hard no Bernie has said he's going to fund. His presidential campaign was smaller contributions. And I think we can do that now. Last month Bloomberg pledged he would use his vast wealth to help fund whoever wins the Democratic nomination now sanders campaign said they are not interested. Bloomberg camp tells. Nbc News that is fine with them. Quote I don't think it would be prudent to spend on behalf of somebody who did not want the response raises a fascinating question about the means and the ends here. The battle between billionaire cash and Democratic Socialism. Which is just one of the main stories of the twenty twenty primary here to talk more about this is on ungeared at US editor at large at Time magazine author of the book winners. Take all in the recent New York Times op. Ed The billionaire election. I think this question is an interesting one. Actually and I'm not clear. What the correct answer is I kind of understand from the sanders campaign particularly the primary. It would look kind of terrible for the brand Bernie Sanders. But I'm also not clear if that's the correct answer and a sort of optimal sense you know I think you have to add it all comes down as we've heard again and again to this question of whether you think trump is symptomatic disease and I think if you think he's this aberration and he's the entirety of the problem. Then you might embrace any means necessary to get rid of him including taking big money if you think. Our problem is oligarchy. If you problem I think our problem is people like Donald Trump having too much power in American life in a bunch of different ways and that he's one of the people who kind of slipped into a particular luckily lucky position for him. Then you don't WanNa fight fire with fire. And I think I'm sympathetic. To the view that you don't fight a racist sexist oligarchy who cannot read with a racist sexist allegoric who can read and is very smart. You know like I just don't think that actually works and I think the question for all of us in this campaign is. Is there a way because you're right? It is a moral dilemma. Because maybe you're not gonNA registered enough voters if you don't have money maybe there's a money help because a lot of things you can do with a billion dollars in Texas of course but part of the excitement of the sanders campaign but I would also say. The Warren Campaign is the strength of the message that they are something not of this plutocratic age and any dilution of that compromises the central thing that is animating people count compromise the central emotional pull of the campaign since the Bloomberg campaign. Here defend themselves. They would strenuously denied. That he's a racist and sexist. I want to say that on their behalf the I would stop and Frisk them. They're here to check You know they were. Yeah the thing about Bloomberg that has been really interesting to watch. Here is a very complicated tenure here in New York City it was. It was my mayor some part of the time. He's complicated figure many ways and quite when he said he's smart. I mean there. There were tremendously competent. Incredible people in fact in administration in that mayoral administration. Who did really remarkable things? Some of the record here in New York City but it was always open question to me of basically like the the value proposition. Michael Bloomberg was kind of like. What if we can have our own billionaire? I mean people would say this to me like what if we can take on trump with someone who could spend unlimited. What if we can take on trump who also kind of didn't give a hack almost kind of trump and I think he didn't understandable fashion that has been continues to be a very alluring idea to people and again it is possible to fight trumpism in a way that deepens the whole of trumpism and you think Bloomberg represent says yes because the the the sum total of trumpism. Isn't this particular guy. Who's so malevolent and hateful and a White Nash? That's that's one expression. That much deeper tendency has taken right. If you think about setting a precedent where anybody with a few billion. We actually have several people. Yeah many many people who can afford to do a Bloomberg's doing he can afford it more than others. But you've got a bunch of people who there were three billion at this kind of thing. Does every person now who has that money? WanNa do that and as you can see I described it before I was just looking at his his charisma last night. Bloomberg's and it really feels like I described this morning as like. It's like a large piece of cheese at eight a robot. I mean it's just like the complete lack of ability to connect both in performance charismatic way but also an inbound way right like someone who hasn't taken in for me it's people in a really long time and that's because and I'd done reporting on these people part of being a billionaire is no one tells you the truth after a pretty early stage in your life. Let me let me let me rephrase lightly. More charitable way robot which is that. He's not quote typical politician and when he was in New York part of what he was able to do because of his money was to kind of not do the truck and barter and all the glad-handing that you have to do is a politician. New York he just has come to politics in a totally different way because they say some people like precisely that right I mean that was the donald trump sell to his electorate was. No one owns me because I own everyone correct exactly and so he did. Do glad handing of a different kind of billionaire. Kind right right. I used to wonder this. In that Era New York you would have these the arts. Go to the ballet and it will be funded not by the city but by Bloomberg philanthropies while he was the mayor and it now appears he was doing was buying people buying nonprofits buying people who fight for the most vulnerable people who might be his biggest opponents as a guy who's behaved the way he has at work or done stop and Frisk and are now silent or supportive. There's this sort of ongoing question about. I'm very curious to see what he does next in terms of his durability this electric particularly in the wake of him having to kind of defend his record like all the other candidates have to us. It's always great to have you thank you so much still ahead. Could the results of South Carolina be the end for any democratic campaigns? Who's got the money in the staying power to make it through

"He said he now now regrets the policy reversal that some people just don't buy it's very absurd and just arrogant I met up with Nicholas part the former plaintiff in the stop and frisk case in Harlem read now working at a nonprofit that serves low income kids do you think you could forgive mayor Bloomberg no I cannot give me a Bloomberg if you aren't able to protect the constitutional rights of new Yorkers how can you protect the constitutional rights of all Americans the problem for Bloomberg is that he needs democratic primary voters like part his campaign is running high budget ads and touting endorsements from African American leaders but Bloomberg is having a tough time running away from the legacy of stop and frisk he was forced to defend the policy last week and his first debate in Nevada I thought that my first responsibility was to give people the right to live that's lumbered thought stop and frisk was necessary to get guns off the streets and bring down the city's murder rate what happened however was it got out of control and when we discovered I discovered that we were doing many many too many stop and frisk we cut ninety five percent of it actually Bloomberg did not end the widespread use of stop and frisk even as the protests and legal challenges mounted neither did Joe Biden who tried to claim credit for the Obama administration at that same debate both guys were really saying the plot but the numbers was due to make the answer was of course the ruling I won't use the word mate but it I wrote the ruling so I guess it was me this is former federal judge Shira Shandling who ruled in twenty thirteen that the NYPD was violating the constitutional rights of black and brown New Yorkers we spoke at her office yesterday general and said she considers stop and frisk a failed policy after all crime continued to fall even after her ruling but she also believes that Bloomberg's motives were pure he meant well however I think he never understood the human toll he didn't get it that's all does that make him a bad man to me doesn't make him a racist but he was blind not all new Yorkers are willing to give Bloomberg that benefit of the doubt I went to east New York Brooklyn the neighborhood that saw more stops than any other police precinct in the city that's why I met Jacqueline Alexander who's lived there for twenty years she says Bloomberg should have known the policy would lead to discrimination you know a person like Bloomberg must understand policy how can you not understand the impact of stop and frisk in an environment where mass incarceration.

"Now it we don't mind if you promote socialism because we're actually socialist but you can't be so blunt about it we're you sound like a Marxist professor and I believe that's what they're worried about their but Bloomberg Jimmy his only strain is he hasn't been vetted yet because those things that he has said are actually worse than anything Biden has done mmhm well and and the and the pre apology tour you know and stop and frisk in other things that's that's not gonna fly with today's liberal with the four line sorry doesn't like you said you got owned it didn't fly with Bill Clinton when he did the post apology to her okay I signed it but I wish I had known all of his major moves and now I like I like that analogy pre apology tour post apologies were right and and but a bold Baba said that you know straight that you know that did the pre op he he he was apologizing but but not from self he was apologizing for all American hearing our good point yeah yeah Hey I'm sorry that I was just elected to be okay president of your call we really horrible horrible nation I'm pretty sure that was almost verbatim what he said I'm pretty sure I could be wrong but the but you know that the whole idea though of of that is is is gone you can't do that anymore you know Arnold was a was a liberal Republican you know and you know the the charges came out about groping yeah I'm sorry about that this is one of the same side of the globe being the touching and anything that was inappropriate and then he became governor he got elected you know and it's I just you you you're not gonna do that as a liberal today it's not gonna happen I am especially with the items that were talking about with Bloomberg if the independence yeah fly over in in the fly over states you know look anybody can poke a hole in the ground put a seed there and water it and stupid farmers I mean I think you know did did you did you see but do you see the tweets from Shapiro yesterday yeah Ben Shapiro understating look everybody's taking it out of context and as we said we understood the context we mention the context in which he was saying those things right but when you get to the specific things as we played that audio cut farmers and then talking about late operators machinists whatever and then got to the point that the new jobs in this was specifically take thinking and analyzing as of the other two did not did not even three that's where we have stated bell that's that that point he was wrong but you take it in the totality of the things that he has said in the past including again as we have said his belief that the poor should be taxed because they just don't know how to run their life when you take him at his totality the arrogance of the condescending attitude as in the lead ist is just there to shine including the farmers and the we understood the context it was saying and how we went from a because we've talked about it but we're not in a drawn to sending way well we talked about how right we went from farming to industrial to you know to service information society right and it is now you look at that the again the pattern of behavior and comments and and it's it has been condescending in nature all along I mean that's just two hits you know it's funny because a lot of the billionaires they really don't come off like that the times tired as to a certain extent I I think it does especially when he's talking about trump and trump supporters no doubt the but if you look at like of Warren Buffett you know end up dead or Bill Gates so a picture of him standing in line in Seattle at a hot dog stand or something recently I mean they don't come they don't come off as that condescending maybe they would if they ran for office I don't know maybe maybe we would see a side of that we just haven't seen it but publicly they they don't Bloomberg has always done that I mean he's had that condescending you know looking down his nose at everybody or up as the case may be he's not that tall I'm just thinking of the ad that Parscale will run which will be the one on the taxing the poor yes because the poor just don't know how to spend their money and they spend it on bad things that will hurt them right and therefore the government needs to take their property away from them so they don't act stupidly and we can help them live longer right and and I can just sit there and say I'm I'm Donald Trump I'm a billionaire I don't want to tax the poor the other billionaire he wishes to tax the poor to just play where you play the comment first and then you say I'm Donald Trump and yeah I don't want to tax the poor he I'm a billionaire he's a billionaire he wishes to tax the porn this is who Democrats nominated now Democrats have nominated a billionaire who wishes to tax the poor yeah I think that's I don't know when the history of politics it Bloomberg gets in that anybody could ever run an ad like that at at the with the the culture that we live in right now with the Democrats liberally culture about billionaires are bad and we need to take care of the poor and here's the billionaire that Democrats nominate if they do that has has been passionate about taxing the poor because they're stupid and he should take care of them yeah the other out I would run as his comments about minorities and how they behave in the workplace yes and then on the other on the tail end of that unemployment rates at record lows

Sen. Bernie Sanders leads in 1st and final alignments as results trickle in for Nevada

"Just following the course the the process in the vada there are the many caucus states have the gall told there for a minute this is a bill would be two of them already so far so that's the not the big issue the big issue is who can help build some momentum or acquires some momentum just looking at the contenders Bernie Sanders has vaulted into the lead nationally in the polls he effectively tied with Pete booted judge and winning the Iowa caucuses handily won the caucuses are bored with the primary in New Hampshire those are the two we've had to date and now comes the the third in which the some of the polls have shown us Sanders with a pretty large lead works Joe Biden once was of the favored by defeats to be among those slugging it out for a distant second place and we'll see if the polls are are proven correct in this regard Biden still retains a lead although much slimmer lead for a week from Saturday the twenty ninth of February for the South Carolina primary and then after that of course just three days later super Tuesday fourteen states and the you've got to have a lot of resources to effectively compete in those states so Bernie he's got his fanatical core he got a lot of contributors he's not going anywhere in center certainly is going to fight this out all the way to Milwaukee in July others no way that this structure you can see him not doing so so that takes us to the other contenders Joe Biden fourth place in Iowa badly fifth place in New Hampshire terrible Biden needs strongly to finish at least in second in Nevada and to win South Carolina he does do those two things states which in the past were thought to be icing on his cake those right now his bedrock last fortresses is Alamo for this campaign if he doesn't survive those that either of the better worry about super Tuesday can he do it remains to be seen these were more diverse states of Iowa or New Hampshire Nevada with a larger span a vote South Carolina the democratic primary is a sixty percent African American so we'll see if his claim that he's got the minority vote in fact pans out there are certainly reasons to think that he may get it by default who were also they're going to turn to Michael Bloomberg Michael stop and frisk Bloomberg are they going to turn to A. B. global chart with charges of racism from the time she was a prosecutor in the Minneapolis area to Pete to judge with charges that there was racism when he was mayor of south bend Indiana to Elizabeth Warren has so far shown no great support from that community so you wonder where they will go though Biden at least if his theory holds true that he in fact we can gain a minority vote that he at least has a shot although Biden is strapped for cash super Tuesday above all else demands cash not only fourteen states but big states like California and Texas expensive media states who's got the money well of course the billionaires do Tom Spira and of course Michael Bloomberg the elephant in the donkey field and the Bernie Sanders seems to have a pretty solid about of cash small donations but he's got the money again he's not going anywhere if you can make a case for how Biden could become the come back kid it's hard to make a case for how Elizabeth Warren could be the come back kid at one time she led the polls and then third place in Iowa not very impressive and not very impressive either in the New Hampshire fourth place finish their it is hard for me to see a path forward for her

Elizabeth Warren came out swinging, and Mike Bloomberg was left battered — highlights from the Nevada Democratic debate

"The democratic presidential candidates faced off yet again this time in Las Vegas last night just two days before the Nevada caucuses this weekend on Saturday we're just a few months out from the democratic convention decisions have to be made they have to pick a nominee candidates are clearly feeling the heat and Wednesday's debate was free wheeling it was a rollicking affair with tons of moments in jabs in flourishes is specially from Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren at the expense of Mike Bloomberg I'd like to talk about who were running against a billionaire who calls women fat broads and for stays to lesbians and no I'm not talking about Donald Trump I'm talking about Bloomberg this was Mike Bloomberg's debut on the debate stage did he deliver and what about Elizabeth Warren she debated like she's fighting for something the new face of Elizabeth Warren on the campaign trail in in the debate and the debate itself it was a key moment in the run up to Nevada and South Carolina and then super Tuesday but will it make a difference here to talk about last night's debate and what history tells us about how much it matters or doesn't we have Laura brown director of the graduate school of political management at George Washington University Laura thanks for being here thanks for having me on what what's your biggest takeaway from the debate last night well I think the biggest takeaway is that a lot of the candidates who had been so apparently kind of out of the game tried to make a comeback last night and I think they did a very good job that includes obviously senator Elizabeth Warren and certainly vice president Joe Biden but the real question is will it matter and this is where it may matter in Nevada it may matter in South Carolina but it may not matter in enough to really prevail in super Tuesday contests when Mike Bloomberg's money is going to be a brick wall that none of them have had to run into before we're gonna talk a little bit about that potential knock on effect or lack there of momentum is important in campaigns but who knows what it means when Mike Bloomberg's television money he pays dividends on super Tuesday well it was Mike Bloomberg's first time on the debate stage as we mentioned he was a target for pretty much everyone is specially Elizabeth Warren is you mentioned Elizabeth Warren went at Mike Bloomberg over stop and frisk his treatment of women his status as she puts it as an arrogant billionaire and his companies use of non disclosure agreements listen we are not going to be Donald Trump with a man who has who knows how many non disclosure agreements and drip drip drip of stories of women saying they have been harassed and discriminate Laura we just mention Mike Bloomberg's money what did we learn last night about his candidacy well what we learned is said he had been a long time Republican and that many of his past sort of histories and policy positions are not really in line with traditional democratic beliefs he's been known recently for his efforts around gun control and climate change but that is not all there is to the man or his record and I think actually the most interesting comment last night came from mayor PPD judge who said you know maybe we should actually put forward someone who's a Democrat that was quite as a kind of jab at both Bernie Sanders and Mike Bloomberg because both of them have had long histories of not considering themselves Democrats you know we have somebody on the show last week I remember who said so far Mike Bloomberg has been running against Donald Trump in ads now he's running against his opponents different game yes I think that's absolutely right but I will also say that the Democratic Party electorate not those activists who volunteer in campaigns or who are watching every night of these debates but really the the democratic electorate that is going to decide this nomination race what they care about most right now is beating Donald Trump I mean the polls keep showing time and again that the Democrats have not made up their minds that this is a very fluid race and what they want is someone who is electable and someone who is going to take the fight to Donald Trump and this is where again you know Mike Bloomberg's money ends up being appealing to Democrats who just want to win and they don't care how they win well let's look a little bit at the history it's one thing to look back on a debate the next day because we all remember the moments but if we look back on past debates and past elections how much do these moments on stage actually make a difference at at the polls especially in early states is history a guide as to whether these debates we chatter about the next day actually matter so what's interesting in terms of the political science literature is that we find that the debate itself doesn't have as strong of an effect as the impression or the chatter about the debate in the days that follow so what is more important to the voters is what they are hearing about the debate whether or not they in fact tuned in and made up their own impression but that said therefore you're going to inflate the egos of my friends in the news media even more than they already are I'm afraid well this is where it's kind of interesting because expectations matter a great deal in terms of who is considered a winner and a loser and it's also true that in our current time it seems as though the chatter doesn't last near as long as one would imagine you know there are news events coming at such a rapid pace that the narratives change so quickly that there is kind of this giant forgetting machine that's been happening and I don't know that it will make much of a difference beyond those voters in Nevada who were tuning in specifically to figure out how they'd vote on Saturday well let's talk about Nevada let's let's do it in the context of Elizabeth Warren because she is getting that media buzz that you talked about we can talk about her performance specifically but according to your on your analysis we should look at the meta we should look at what people are saying about what Elizabeth Warren was saying that she was on the attack she she flexed on policy she flexed on Michael Bloomberg she seem to use Michael Bloomberg to show what she would do to Donald Trump if they ever squared off one on one but historically you're saying that even that a strong debate performance and the way we're talking about Elizabeth Warren right now may help her with a surgeon Nevada and maybe not much beyond yeah I mean look if she does have a strong showing in Nevada first of all she needs it you know by all accounts she is a next door neighbor to New Hampshire she did not have a strong showing there she was seen as somebody who had become somewhat passive on the campaign and allowing Bernie Sanders to add her out of that progressive lane that she had been in and I think last night she showed she's a fighter she showed she really cares about the issues that she has campaigned on and put a great deal of effort into working through plans around and I think it will be a very good thing for her in Nevada I think the question is who does she actually take support from because you know ostensibly one would imagine she would take support from Bernie Sanders and I don't know if he comes out of Nevada as strong as he would like because of her performance in other words there's still a lot up in the air and what happens in Nevada will turn into some sort of momentum balance for someone in South Carolina your saying that what happens in Vegas will not stay in Vegas to to flip the a corollary that we all have so much faith in that it really has a knock on effect for the rest of the race Bernie Sanders is the clear front runner in this race now he's leading in the polls in Nevada but that performance last night we'll have to wait and see what it does for Elizabeth well Elizabeth Warren's ability if there is any to eat into his lead I'm Amy club charts performance in the debate before New Hampshire was largely credited with her good performance there do you buy it I do because again I think what is happening right now is that the voters in these states where these debates are being held are really in a wrestling match with themselves they're trying to make up their mind the polls show that their decisions are very kind of fluid and they are thinking through their vote very strenuously and I do think that they are the ones tuning into these debates and making up their minds in the wake of them and this is where let's face it we've got another debate next Tuesday night before South Carolina that could again reach change and reshape people's perceptions in a post Nevada world you know it's interesting where we we talk so much that all politics is nationalized now that's just the way it is and and I guess in a way that's true but they're still you're saying this strong dynamic that they're real effect of a debate performance good or bad is really only proximal it's really local even if we all watch it nationally well sure because events will overtake our impressions by the time it becomes national right so between last night and a super Tuesday there are going to be many more events that occur and it changed people's perceptions about the candidates and so this is where I'm always very cautious around my colleagues making assumptions that politics moves in a linear fashion it usually doesn't there's usually events that very quickly change relationships between who's winning who's losing and how the whole process is unfolding while many of us learned in the last election or should have the danger of making predictions and this added perspective on the non linear characteristics of politics specially primary politics in this media environment just fascinating Laura brown director of the graduate school of political management at George Washington University in DC you are thank you

"Because of stop and frisk it was a bad policy at the same time I also understand that Michael Bloomberg one to get guns out of the community so that innocent people did naked kill African American voters are all ways they have very sophisticated focus you know they throw their interests they know their interests he is making sure that Donald Trump is defeated that's absolutely the interests and so they're going to move in the direction that they think who is the best person to defeat Donald Trump and then who is also going to talk about their agenda now in the mayor Bloomberg has also for Mike for black America meanwhile New York times columnist Charles below road in new opinion piece quote let me plant the stake now no black person or Hispanic person or ally of people of color should ever even consider voting for Michael Bloomberg in the primary has expansion of the notoriously racist stop and frisk program in New York which swept up millions of innocent new Yorkers primarily young black and Hispanic men is a complete and non negotiable deal killer Blake Seth the what has just happened in these last few weeks yeah there's been a real a bit of a rewriting of the stop and frisk legacy by Michael Bloomberg and some of his supporters I mean you what we've seen Bloomberg do lately is say look I inherited this policy I apologize for its excesses and I reduced at ninety five percent in fact let's go through each one of those claims one by one yes the the policy did exist initially under Republican mayor Rudy Giuliani will know who that is but a new mayor can come in and decide whether they want to continue that are not not only to deliver continue it expanded it to record levels when he first came in the number of stops for year was under a hundred thousand it didn't grow steadily under Bloomberg to until two thousand eleven when it reached its apex and almost seven hundred thousand stops are made that year so let's say he inherited a you factually is true but he also greatly greatly expanded in terms of reducing it ninety five percent well as I just mentioned it just kept expanding until eventually in twenty thirteen it does get rolled back considerably but that's the year that a federal judge ruled the policy unconstitutional and Bloomberg was the subject of a of of of the lawsuit a class action lawsuit in so that clearly had something to do with that and in terms of the apology this is a really egregious because there were so many groups that were up in arms about this policy for many many years and Bloomberg and his defenders remain defiant constantly saying we need this in order for crime to go down and sort of suggesting that he opposed it that you were basically opening the doors to the bad old days of crime terrible crime coming back well after the policy was really really curtailed after Bloomberg left New York continue to see these these reductions in crime and he was really proven wrong on that again did not apologize years go by the Daily News one of his big editorial supporters in general and also in stop and frisk issued a big apology a couple years after Bloomberg left saying we were on and stop and frisk Bloomberg did not do that then let's go to twenty nineteen January twenty nineteen he's at a big event for the US Naval Academy he continues to defend the policy finally in November of twenty nineteen he talks to an audience in Brooklyn and says it was a black audience he said I'm sorry I was actually wrong about that seven days later he declares his candidacy for president of the United States and of course he had sent here before if you didn't run for president on the democratic ticket he would have to do a long apology tour yes mean tab I wanted to go back to you you're no longer with the center for American progress but you are on the Democratic National Committee you recently received a phone call from Mike Bloomberg can you tell us what that was about chores so this was at the end of December of twenty nineteen this was I think shortly after he launched his presidential campaign and he said he's calling as a courtesy I had to sit down with me to introduce himself to tell me why he's running why he's you know able to to when and what he's done for the Democratic Party I a I did not call him back I simply because I I wanted to kind of void an uncomfortable conversation where I assumed he wanted to ask me to support him as you noted I am at the NC and elected DNC member which means I during a brokered convention on a second ballot I will have a vote for you know to decide our next nominee and I identifies a progressive activists and I hope that whoever our nominee is is able to I excite the grassroots and decrease voter turnout and fight for a progressive platform so why wouldn't you want to talk to Michael Bloomberg our I mean if the if they reach out to me now and I'm happy to to offer had the courtesy and sit down with them I at the time honestly because of what happened at cap because of the policies he support ed because of the way he kind of entered the race and is now essentially bankrolling I his campaign and and the by election I I felt very uncomfortable and you know if you're a member of his team reached out to me now I'm I'm happy to kind offer them that courtesy as set down with them but at the time I just I didn't feel comfortable doing let's talk about what could happen in the future this whole idea of a brokered convention and then the role you would play yes mean tie and as a member of the DNC explain what this would look like sure so I I as as you may know we passed reforms in the DNC as that I eliminated the vote of super delegates on the first ballot at the time when we pass these reforms and these were the most progressive reforms that DNC had had passed from my understanding and and the grass with was incredibly excited is the reforms that I advocated for and and lobbied for all across the Commonwealth of Virginia talking to Democrats and telling them why these are these reforms are needed at the time unfortunately when they passed we were incredibly it's ecstatic thinking that now that the process and twenty twenty will become more fair and impartial and the grassroots would be more you know kind of excited about that and and lasts inclined to attack at the DNC and the and and kind of leaders and the party unfortunately because of how I do believe this nomination fight is going to move forward I believe we're still on we're still going to have at least four to five candidates that are viable heading into the convention I don't believe we'll have a single candidate that's able to receive a majority of delegates so in order to avoid heading into a second ballot we need to have at least one candidate that has at least I I believe the number is about nineteen ninety eight delegates tonight honestly I don't think that's going to happen and this is particularly important and and why candidates like mayor Bloomberg are you know doing their homework I mean the fact that he reached out to me this is in the very initial parts the first couple weeks that he entered the race hi it shows that he knows it will likely be a brokered convention and he's probably band reaching out to the NC members trying to a you know an shore that he has as many supporters and that the and the like this issue of super delegates weighing in on the second vote what do you foresee here and the significance of this four so I'm not quite sure blank out as I say I think this really speaks to another key point about Bloomberg that's worth getting into because it was just that he had billions of dollars and a ton of money you know Tom star as a lot of money Howard Schultz had a lot of money right and that alone is not really the entire story here it's for me it's the the story about Bloomberg and what makes his candidacy potentially very potent is that it's a combination of endless resources but also in extremely smart team that he has they're very canning clever and also what I would call their Machiavellian approach to winning and the fact that they're calling all these members to try to see if they can get those get get that support this early on really speaks to that they are gonna understanding look Mike Bloomberg made his fortune he did inherit a fortune from like an oil family right it was from data analytics communications media can really understands these areas and they are looking at the numbers and they know what they need to do and they're starting that this far out that doesn't surprise me at all very quickly breaks after the role of president Obama he is in so many of these national ads that are blanketing the networks across the country for Bloomberg though he doesn't you know specifically endorse them clearly it seems like Bloomberg must've said can I use you talking about me in these ads what do you think Obama's role as here I'm not so sure that they got permission you know look at the very quickly the history between glory in a bomb is not that there some great friends at all as everyone knows bomber was a Republican for a long time endorsed George W. bush in two thousand four one Obama was getting is classic speech for John Kerry that year of for the Democrats then await bloomer does not endorse Obama in twenty twelve he endorses Obama at the very last second they're not bad almost half heartedly in which he criticizes Obama as being divisive and partisan and overly popular so they work together and some issues like gun safety reform the environment things like that and I'm sure the Obama like others that we've talked about is we're preaching of of the fact that Michael when we gave a lot of money for democratic causes but they were not best buds who work together on a lot of things so that the bad gives a little bit of a misleading impression and I'm not so sure that Obama is secretly behind the scenes pulling for Bloomberg and gave her permission to do that finally I wanted to go to a clip of seeing Michael Bloomberg at the U. N. climate summit in Madrid we caught up with ten after what what we thought he was holding a news conference at the U. S. climate action center which he finds where journalists would go to ask politicians questions he even shock to the people who worked at this we're still in a conference room when he after speaking wrapping up his comments after a cold all the press in their pictures of you know him standing at the U. S. caught the U. N. climate summit sign he was surrounded by his officials and security and walked out so I tried to follow him to get my question to an mayor Bloomberg or you'll be taking questions from the press if you could just answer a question we we all in there to answer questions but the U. N. as said that economic and climate in a quality is driving protests around the world you sure you're a billionaire running for president you've spent more tens of millions more dollars than the other presidential candidates will that be your strategy to win the presidency or to talk about this with that was his sack campaign manager saying we're gonna taught we're not only talking about climate of course that night he had a long interview with Chris jam and poor and he was talking all about the election but calling a news conference and then walking out before the journalists got to ask the question but having that photo op of hundreds of journalists around him Blake's after your last twenty seconds look better than other example of their strategy which is to try to control every aspect of the campaign they can and that's what the commercials enable him to do if you run so many commercials and that's how you get your message out you don't have to submit to interviews you don't have to submit to scrutiny because you're getting all the media coverage that you want and that's a perfect example of their desire to really control every single aspect of this and the money enables them in large part to do that Blake sat on a thank you for being with us journalists and documentary filmmaker and yes maintained a civil rights lawyer elected member of the Democratic National Committee when we come back we talk about Yemen were thirty one people were killed and U. S. back Saudi UAE air strikes this weekend including women and children the U. N. called it shocking stay with us and dreams this is democracy now I need a man as we look now at Yemen were thirty one people were killed in U. S. back Saudi you air strikes over the weekend including women and children the strikes.

over well with the with the party base and then I've got you've got what gets the man behind the curtain nobody knows this guy we know many York we know that the and he's even as insulting teachers unions like they look great what do you go after everybody are that you're going to be asking to bow prio now he's tried to changes opinions I mean that's the spectacular fail a Bloomberg coming out and saying you know well you supported the stop and frisk for twelve years and you have five years of calm read the blouse it was mayor and he said nothing about hating stop and frisk for seventeen years but he decides he's going to run for president well yeah I mean it's so transparently phony sever the we hate about politicians it's not real it was a story about him up currently when he was mayor he left all of these exclusive golf clubs I guess he was a member of that is done being mayor and didn't think it was going to run for office again so we join them all up again no something Lloyd Bentsen did so did he really leave because he wanted diversity at the golf clubs now he didn't leave it all another golf commenting made to a mutual friend does guy that I know with great broadcaster John gambling as I you like golf John I like golf we have booked up we don't have illegal immigrants who's going to care for our greens and cut our fairways and you spoke to Spanish shaspa Spanish language network last week all gonna make every illegal immigrant legal and we're not going to control the borders and immigration like all great keep run into some sort of like the Bernie plan we're gonna lose jobs and I'm going to raise your taxes through the roof is a good plan that's very appealing I'm watching how the mob now we're telling grandma grandpa you sick at ninety five yeah good life go home you're gonna die anyway overall in the process I guess of dying all gonna die at some point I'm pretty certain of Bloomberg has prostate cancer at ninety five he's probably going to hire the best doctors to try and stay as long alive as long as possible I'm not in a rush to get leave this world either but if you don't have the money to bat we got a tell all people too bad life expectancy you're done you're out don't have a love not money like I do too bad that's what he say it's it's really on on a level that I can't even believe it so I kind of got ward I guess or maybe a little sick of it we the way we watch now this love affair with Michael have a nadie three years and it's gone on to the point where they they they turned him into a day AT now why did the media take too you know big news CNN and conspiracy TV state run television for the radical Democratic Party MSDN C. why a why he was there this love of Avenue RD you know a hundred times on this network it's it you know punted times on this network he's on every second of every day why because they he hated trump and then he took it a step further say it started thinking about running for president and many were see how you could be the savior the Democratic Party you're so good because you hate trump the most is representing stormy Daniels at the time and yet one point I ran into him when the member this like two years ago three years ago and that that media I part was it no I think was like I I was on a list of something is one of what I go to like one of vent the year that's it and I'm literally push that and and screaming and dragged there by well boxx those to be honest not a bad way they want me to go and I try to do I try to be a good host I try to be a good colleague and co worker I'm but I saw on their knees like all want to come on the show I said your honor in it are you you got to earn the number one show what is going on Twitter and he's trying to get me to buy it night finally tweeted him back and said you're on every other show you haven't earned the right to be on the number one rated show could you just repeat yourself you hate Donald Trump there you go said if you have any expertise in any other topic let me know never heard back from but I never put him on the air for that reason I did that these everywhere else so anyway they comes out with this woman Julie sweat that can she was the one that made one of the allegations against justice capital and if your call when allegations not only in this matter with Nike that he was found guilty of what is he pays forty two years in prison I read not good for him but first there were allegations of some type of domestic altercation is involved and I so I'm gonna give an ID that which he never gave justice Cavanaugh which is the presumption of innocence a belief in due process benefit of the doubt and something he should have given justice cabin on didn't no now we don't have to say because now is convicted in this case against Nike shake down the Nike was a poor counts three or four counts I'm buddies law by the media anyway so I guess I'm look at Mediaite over the weekend and there I see Humpty Dumpty this guy cracks me up is that and they actually don't even I I think there is a such a a bifurcation of their brains that they actually believe or of convince themselves of a couple of things that Donald Trump is the embodiment of evil and they give convince themselves that they are fair and balanced and that their real journalists they're not I mean fake news CNN is hate trump and all things trump and all things fox news every second every minute every hour of every day late the then it's ninety five percent he dropped the little bit of well splash in a little hate Hannity in there I hate you know well whoever so it's a joke that they take themselves so seriously and I'm watching they're trying to act serious and Humpty Dumpty just so you know I guess he's in charge of it really just Jeff Zucker stenographer guys give succor hates it can't stand Donald Trump I don't know but it's personal for him and anyway so I I see that there's this montage put together a I don't know who put it out originally baby is the Washington free beacon at was the beginning and I saw it on media I and anyway let's play the media love fest of without a nadie I make it a point here he's Donald trump's worst nightmare might join us once again is Michael of an audience for you Michael Michael Levin nodded Michael of an ID thank you very much he may be the saving of the Republic if you are something of a folk hero now Michael I have an ID an apology I mean saying I'm not for reading Michael I've seen you everywhere what do you like to say I was wrong rather you have a lot to say I am just dying to hear two things people all like you I'm the only person right here Donald Trump fears more than Robert Miller we think you guys are the tip of the spear this going to take down Donald Trump Mike Levin out is a beast okay that's true and he the beast he's a BC I handed he is a great big recalling here that being a lawyer is minimal compared to what he's doing no one has talked tougher directly to Donald Trump on TV but Michael have an ID and Donald Trump is afraid to mention his name that's fascinating Donald Trump is terrified of Michael Levin a truck run for his money anybody else my glove anon is existentialist threats of the trump presidency the Democrats could learn something for you you are messing with trump a lot more than they are he has no doubt created sheer panic and Donald trump's very fragile mind Michael is a laying down the law yes really thinking about running for president one reason why I'm taking you seriously as a contender.

"Shows throughout the week. The Air Saturdays from one to three you can listen to live or and replay as well on any of those particular platforms. Yeah so let's talk about the impeachment teach me. We haven't talked about that much. I actually think The the I G report next week will indict Adam Schefter. That's where I'm thinking go I think I think atom is the one who You know he's he basically came out and started this whole master. Probably it looks like protect himself very much like the Biden family right so ought to see here. I will say though that I do think the Republican Party needs to figure out the sound like a broken record with us but get had a backbone man get a backbone. This is an incredible time to really go on the offense against these Democrats and nobody's drinking the KOOL aid. Except for the mainstream media the mainstream media is ignoring the fact as you pointed out before that Adam shift is tied to a bunch of files right. The main. It's more for now. I would think covering four right so trying to provide distraction trying to shift the narrative totally dubbed told them totally missing You know exactly what. The original intent was of this whole thing which is to actually uncover cover the corruption of the Biden family right. And it's funny because I think you played some videos last week it was on the podcast and radio show about the mainstream media actually did look at the Biden family twenty thirty years ago but now that he's a candidate there let's just forget about all those stories right. He was actually years ago when they looked at him in nineteen eighty-eight when he's running for president the first time he plagiarized a famous speech. He lied about repeal. Lied about his his His college transcripts or whatnot. He said he finish the top half of his class. He finished really the bottom. Half close to the bottom at wants to media found that out they call them out on it and they basically forced him out of the race they embarrassed the hell out of them because because they were right to do so because that's when they usually gate of reporting that's when they used to be a reporter now fast forward twenty thirty years later and were burying the transcripts were ceiling them from Obama's Columbia University Stint and his Arberg still birth certificate he might not even be in America. That's right you mentioned that because I just watched that video recently I never realized it was videos of that plane crash so there was an again for those that don't believe in the deep state eight. I never did until the last probably ten years or so watching all this stuff. I never believed stuff until fast and furious. If you told me fifteen years ago that our government was selling high high powered weapons to Mexican drug cartels. I would've said Oh come on no way but now that I do stuff like that has actually happened. The only person that that actually signed off supposedly on the Obama birth certificate the health director for a Hawaii went down in that plane crash. I never saw the video but I did fi forever ever reasons somebody puts posted some videos recently. And I'm telling you there's no possible way right so the story was if you don't recall they. The the eight people hopped on a commuter plane from the Big Island to whoever they're going. They're hopping islands for one one island to another edge happens. You know the thousand times a day in Hawaii right. The plane ended up up now. The news reports shows that it spiraled down to the water. Actually it was a very nice soft landing so soft that the pastors were able to get up and get off the plane before it. Actually thank now. I never saw the video but somehow all eight passengers survived no problem. No injuries whatsoever except for the health director. Who Somehow how died in the crash and never the report was said? She'd never got out of the plane and went to the bottom of the ocean now. I just saw that video recently. And I'm telling you she did get out of the plane. She was floating just finding the water. They were there was no panic whatsoever and suddenly somehow she doesn't make it out so if have you pie. cinderblocks to somebody's legs Glenda. It's really difficult. I give them to keep floating up on top of the water right. It's really amazing. Though when you think about like fast and furious and them saying well we just forgot to put the trackers on the guns. Oh yeah that's A. That's a common mistake that sure with all the advanced training that everybody in that department has that you would do. And then now now you look at Epstein and you say okay. This is just getting obvious right now. Obvious totally obvious. Now keep in mind during the fast and furious hearings What's his name? Eric holder was held in contempt of Congress for lying the Congress. Now how come he gets he gets he. He lied to Congress he lied under oath was sworn testimony Oni. Right he lies right. We know he lies. We is obvious that he lied. We those documents that show Eli and he just walks away you know. No problem retires prominent now Roger Stone supposedly you lied to Congress and he looks like he's going away for life and I'll say this Roger Stone's should be absolutely fearful for his life because while he is matt believe he is suitable one month two months in jail he knows it. I know it you know it. Everybody knows it. They will take him out same thing by the way with what he bolger. I'm not sure people uh not to get down to the conspiracy trial but all of a sudden it just came out that you know while back that mother just so happen to the FBI. Director de Protected Whitey Bulger that kept innocent people in jail because Whitey Bolger was an FBI informant. They let him in Boston go on to murder several people they protected him the FBI did with Robert Muller's ahead and as soon as that news broke oak day. Just so happen to transfer Whitey Bolger from that prison in Boston to another prison facility and like DC. He was killed. What did forty eight hours of transfer over over? You're talking about eighty seven year old guy in a wheelchair. They beat them to death literally. That's how discussed and I'm telling you it wasn't like Oh we're just going to transfer have because we want to transfer it was. We're going the transfer him before any media gets an option to talk to him. He's sick because he's getting close to was dot that he's eighty years old he's GonNa sing like a canary he's GonNa roll over on all the FBI and all we've got to get rid of him and he did. It's exactly what they what's what's very out of Control is disgusting. Yeah what they're doing the wikileaks right. Remove Weijia Roger Remove Roger Stone. Get Him I'll give him in jail. Wipe him out. That's what they're gonNA do. Julian assange nobody has heard from him. They arrested him. They threw him in jail now. He did the whole Roger Stone thing they talked about Roger Stone supposedly getting the the Russian Emails or the hacked e mails the Hillary Clinton DNC from from wikileaks. wikileaks has said no way. I didn't get it from him. I didn't get it from Russia. That's not who had it and clean it. Not here's who here's who took it. That kid that was killed on the street a DC right that staffer. I can't think of the guy's name Seth Green is South Rich. Seth Rich Wjr. Seth rich was a DNC staffer. He was pulling data off the DNC servers. He was feeding it to wikileaks. They offered him on a street. None of the cameras worked bike lake. Just coincidentally single business on necessary has a camera. There's no video footage at all. He was shot three times in the back. Nothing was taken from him except for for. Maybe the thumb drives. He had his pocket right because while it was still there. His foot was still there so they wipe out the guy who's taking it out right the guy who who's who's pulling the material out they they take out join assange. They put him in solitary confinement. The he will be killed he will not make it out of prison. You'll never see join assange again. His life is over the the he'll be tortured to death. Whatever prisoner holding him in and they're going to do the same thing the Roger Stone and that ties it nice and neatly up into a nice little bow now? Doesn't it right so we we. The the allegation is that Russia hacked the DNC DNC. We don't we've never seen a server right. We hired crowd strike to do the review. The server is. I don't think even the country right. If not it was already destroyed they wipe out the guy who's pulling information off the server and take out the other two people that have knowledge of those emails so that day. There's absolutely no naked. Talk to just like they did with Whitey bulger before he had a chance chance to roll over on the FBI and sing like a canary. They wiped them out. This is what our government now has come to so we talk about an unequal amount of justice. When somebody like the National Sousa goes to jail for nine months for over campaign contribution but Rosie o'donald could do it five times under five different names and Walk Scot free? There's a huge wjr problem in this country and I am hoping that trump and the next four years can get to a point where he literally with the I G report wipes these people off. The table gets integrated. Well you know what that is. Exactly right he has they have to go on the offense of they have to clean it up. He talked about in ran on the platform draining the swamp this is the swamp it it is stinky mess. It's deep and it needs to be fixed. You know it's funny though Pelosi this week. You know this is such a shit. Show this whole these as witnesses come one after another Do you think trump did anything wrong. Not that I can see. It's like what the hell are you here for. You know now evident. President trump is now the favourite is well. They've got nothing right so now Pelosi's going to say hey donald you should come and talk to us trump's like like. I didn't do anything wrong. This is the United States of America. You're supposed to prove on guilty brew medicine. He said if trump has you know evidenced instead clear him of this crime he should clear up times. That's worth your show. If no yeah released released a transcript. Nancy put the transcript out there. Yeah this is hiding by. Here's what they're desperate about. This is why Adam Schiff is so is is desperate. What about his his connections to these sexual predators number one and they're and they're also they also understand that the only candidate that has a chance? It's is is Joe Biden. He's the only one that has a little bit of a chance right. Yeah and and and the real the real shame of it is. They are corrupt upped. The Biden family is corrupt. They've learned out of the Clinton playbook that you can make millions and millions and millions of dollars. Nobody will bother you and they were doing it and they got clot and Obama was nervous about it. They Obama set. I'm nervous about these ties. It doesn't matter it doesn't matter so now it's sliding him in the ass just like we said it was going to so Adam Schiff good friends with Ed Block. Now Ed Buck was a huge Democrat donor in California I think that the third Young Black Gay man was found dead in his apartment. So what Ed was doing everybody by the way that happens obvious what add does doing was he was preying on these folks bringing these guys are how it was built Uraga mocking them. Yup providing methamphetamines. Reminding them all kinds of drugs he gave a little. Yeah but too many drugs to a couple of these guys and they died he let them get away with the ones get away with twice and I think it was a third one where they finally said. Wait a minute just doesn't seem right. The first one right house hottest. Somebody's dead in our house if they're investigating. I'm sorry sorry. Oh he drug overdose know their house. Mike that's right. Computers drug socks up everything in our. They're taking us into is to search for your life is over. You had lost everything and it's going to cost you millions of dollars to defend yourself even if you didn't do anything nothing wrong even if we'd a holiday party at her house and somebody drugged themselves up in the bathroom and we had no idea about I guarantee you and I are spending hundreds of thousands thousands of dollars of millions of dollars to defend ourselves to say. I didn't know the drugs were in the house absolutely but eh donor. So he gets away with good buddies with Adam shipped shipped by the way..

"Your bicycle while takes a private helicopter opt to and from his office and to and from his prison. You know the Byrd B.. Muda or something. I will say before before. Giuliani actually started to do this. Though I mean people were afraid. Great they were putting their babies in bathtubs because they were just afraid of random fire in the city I mean it was a total disaster. A mass and you needed to do something to be proactive to get back on track either. The shame of it is job. Shame of it is is that you know it actually worked. I mean it did work homicides. Were down seventy eighty percent and of course now Bloomberg to appease the left and the nut jobs on the left. He's gotTa take policy. That actually did work that he should be sort of problem. I'd be bragging egging about that I'd say look at homicides down seventy percent when I was in office. That's a good deal right by the way that's that. Most of them were inner city black kids who got had saved those homicides. Were not rich white families from the suburbs that You know that we're getting saved. So which was an alien. She said she was a target of this. The the the yeah central targeting her and her family were specifically targets this but yet if you study a OC she actually. He was raised. I think in Westchester County which is more of a little bit you know higher up ninety something percent white. Yeah no now but again. Her reality is different right she she she must re in her brain. She actually probably thinks that she grew up somewhere different. Certainly her economic degree is is very different than the one you and I received so I didn't. I didn't learn that. Socialism was good. When I got my degree college? I didn't I didn't learn that. Communism was a positive the thing I did. You know food bread lines were were good. I mean the fact that Bernie even says that if I'm if I'm trump I play that clip over and over over and over again and he's finished Broadway's does a good thing at least communist countries. Don't big at food. Those in capitalist countries they starve life Bernie go find me. The poor skinny guy said to be honest with you. Folks are not like shape. I'm just now. They're the ones. Yeah they don't look like they're starving me. I'm just saying that by the way I've said this for a long time and when he comes to welfare you you know. We mentioned earlier. Forty per forty million people on food stamps. Look we are all about helping people that need it especially when it comes to kids right but let's be honest here. We've got a program that that is setup where you're literally paying people to go out and try to find people that qualify for food stamps. Even though they might not need it and say guess what you qualify you qualify free. It's free it's free should be going back to. Oh you're in real need. Oh you can't feed your family absolutely. Let's give it now. Oh you qualify. Oh you don't need it. I I know you got your social security and your pension your in your fine because you live within your means but but listen you qualify for the so. Why not just take it right well? What they're doing they're out there encouraging people and they're are paying people like a commission for them to sign people up on food stamps? You know the sad thing is is that at some point and they don't ever want to hurt the kids and that's the toughest part because a lot allowed. These families will neglect their children. If they're not on welfare right but for those that don't have children for those that are single able bodied people without kids in the household. I gotta that'd be honest. Hunger is a real motivator. Right stop paying them to be poor. One or two things will happen. Be they'll get their shit together and they'll go out and they'll get a job right in though actually actually the support themselves or they'll starve to death in on the streets. I guess but it's a point. You know we have to start to look at this and say what is a reasonable amount of assistance from the government to somebody. How long should they be able to take that assistance? And what are the qualifications to receive that assistance. If there's kids that's one thing but again there's there's a lot I'll never forget the story Mike in Buffalo we The the kid was sixteen or so fifteen years old and he robbed a gas station at gunpoint and he was killed by an off duty. Police officer was shot and killed because he pulled a gun and threatening to shoot people so the police officer we did the right thing and defended himself in the people around him and I remember the interview with the mom going. Oh he was such a good kid he was just about to qualify. I was just trying to qualify him for New York state disability and social security disability really. He he was sixteen years old. He sprinted into the store like a marathon. He's out gang baggage at four o'clock in the morning he doesn't disability. Yeah disability humping six foot fence is like a freaking Olympic athlete. For Christ Sakes I mean the other thing is you. You said one word. That's key with Welfare to me. And that's reasonable right. Reasonable seasonable is when I was a kid. We weren't poor but my weed family didn't waste money and I don't mean that I go out to dinner and stuff like that but we didn't do that Kinda into stuff we didn't go out to fancy dinners and stuff like that. My mom stayed at home. She bought Balk Food A lot of times. We've frozen food cheap. Break it up right. We were never on public look assistance. My Dad always worked as had plenty to jobs when he needed to write But reasonable is you know not. Here's a credit card. Go go get your cash out. And by the way those those those credit cards are being used in casinos are being used in strip clubs. They're being used all all over the place except for actually going to get the basic necessities right because when you break it down and I've had this conversation with my wife. My wife does more of the shopping because she knows knows that I'll just show up with doritos and it won't be good for the family right so she's like that's that's how that's not is that it's not that we divided up as you just latman right. But I'm like look at if we really we needed to if we really needed to you know and she needed to go out by balk stuff. There was pasta or you know eggs and milk and cheese and the basics right. And that's it's what was really designed to do member black cheese and I'm not saying we give people crummy food but they shouldn't get an ATM card to do whatever the hell they want with it. It should be for the basics. That's right it used to give our government cheese and things like that ready to go you go to a pantry and get the food that they gave you. Now you can go to your friendly Wegmans or tops supermarket by rib eye steaks if you want to. And then they do so and by the way. Don't say shame on you guys. It's the true if you gotta actually see. I got a buddy of mine. WHO's a regional director up in western New York for a big chain of grocery stores and he will tell you the first week of the month they come men they use their card and literally about half of them he said about half of them will go over and buy lottery tickets they immediately take the cash out and then go spended ended on lottery tickets? Yup So don't tell me that they're you know they're all yeah. Are there a few of them that are trying to better themselves. Yes they're the system is designed to keep them there. That's the problem. They're making financial decisions today to say I'm not taking that job or twenty five thousand. I can make forty on welfare. Let's take a quick break. We come back. I want to talk about some one of the Impeachment hearings and the The really draining the swamp. I mean Adam Schefter he looks like a Nutjob by the way somebody better tell him. Like blink or something thing he's is is well. He's here to file. We'll talk about that. We come back near he's solely a you're gonNA find out that he likes little boys. I think that's going to be very clear in the next cell reminds the Kristen belly ablaze before the is just the nut is like you know. I think they're like she got the courage. I saw that from. Aclu you yes. The courage for trying to destroy somebody's career based on allegations with CNN. CNN's should've should've been awarded that CNN should've have been awarded that not her quick break.

"Think I think it's the the intention analogy that has parents can be can be so terrifying when I think about if I'm not intentionally steering the ship then at the very least I'm probably ably raising my kids in some kind of Canadian version of capitalism yup kind of a centrist political perspective as minimum impairment just gentle things and try not to rock the boat but does that tell them that they can't have any strong impotence. Maybe right or that strong opinions are bad. which is is interesting right like all of those things that you've kind of set up a make it sound like that's the the ideal right and you know. I was thinking about strangely this this also I think in some ways inspired that post in particular in Quebec they recently passed a law that bans religious apparel in certain government roles and in certain just public service roles they just don't want anybody who represents the government to have any visual obvious religious garb whatever whatever that may be and I just I was thinking about that how funny that is. It's the myth of of a secular society society it's like. Oh because they're not wearing X Y and Z means that they're not Christian or Muslim or or whatever right so it just it struck me such a funny thing to think that we by by not doing those things that were you know a theological or a ah irreligious or whatever that might be but by trading secularism for Christianity or your secularism for Islam or whatever that is we are adapting to another see logical lens or or ideology and I just think that's hilarious laureus that we think that it is it is becoming neutral in some way right. There is no neutral ground doesn't exist man. There's no neutral the ground. That's that's that's right and I think that that's why it in lack of intention. -ality terrifies me because because of the trap of assuming there is neutral ground a thinking well. I'm a good person while I love Jesus. Some of that's GonNa come through of course some of that's through twelve but all these other things right like like like what we like politics and whatever and the food we eat and how we relate to our possessions and run how daddy freaks out when someone drops mug and smashes on the floor at years later I discovered that my son is super sensitive about possessions because one time dead yelled when when something got broken and it's like and I see my son crying like this was like five dollars and he's crying and I'm like I've made some money comment at some point. That's like gone in deep yep and now he's got this whole money psychology so it's like yeah intention -Ality uh-huh charting choosing what we're raising our kids and I get the kind of coal and the deconstruction communities wrestling wrestling and yet fear. I don't want to be feeding some of the garbage that I had to eat totally yes. Yes and you don't have to write like and I think this is the the thing where you know I. I think that a lot of the essential co-community has struggled with obviously obviously I mean through spins and toxic stuff that has happened within evangelical is when we we must repent of that and we must confess it. We must own it to say yeah. This stuff has happened happened. quite frankly still happening in a lot of spheres that is horrible and that is not. Christ like and that is that is just a I mean. It's it's it. It has such dire consequences. We've seen the lift out and so when I hear the exponential co-community speak unlike yeah like that is painful and there is real genuine pain there but God but God is still good and God is still at work and and God is doing some really incredible things and I do. I do believe I do hope that through the community you know. God is still honored in some really cool ways and I I think he can be I think he is but I think with our kids. may sound way too overly simplistic but to really just bring in the focus on Jesus in all that we do with our kids in in my book I talk about this idea of Jesus senator parenting and and what that is is taking things through the lens of Jesus I realized okay we'll what Jesus will. Let's just talk even about the Jesus of the sermon on the mount okay. If we look at Jesus we look at Matthew five to seven Jesus. You know what are some of the ideas. The ethics ethics the center in in on love that he shows exemplifies in that. How do we do that then in our parenting that looks like teaching teaching our kids what enemy love looks like when it's hard each morning proof my daughter and I pray that God would help her to be kind even when it's hard and I realized that can sound a little bit pushover but realistically I want her to show love even when it's hard and to do the hard work of loving well. does that mean that she won't stand up for injustice. No actually my my kid is wired for justice orientation she's like. I'm GonNa you know stand in the gap. I you know the the the the week in the merchandise but that's been interesting conversation piece because I was watching she was at the playground Graham with some friends that I was standing on the side talking to a parent and I watched as my daughter was trying to stand up for this one kid who was a little bit smaller. I'm and there was this big kid and and and he was giving them a bit of a hard time and she she was so funny my daughter's this little you know a fairly tall but she's kind of a stick figure kid and she starts to pretend karate chop and he kind of backed off whatever but then he came back and her impulse was to kind of stand in between the big kid and the to those being harassed and I was proud affir- spin willing to stand in the gap standing between right there we strongly advocate for a non violent resolution working on that in our family with the karate chops taking them out of there but we talked afterwards It's really that whole situation ended with her coming over to get a grownup and we're kind of this kind of waiting and watching to see if the kids could resolve this on their own or whatever but they ended up getting was good they they kinda went through the process well themselves an learned in we stayed out of it as as parents until we were sought after after 'cause it was needed and it was a good situation and but it led to a great conversation in the car ride later and I said to my daughter like you. I know you know instead of the credit shopping. What what could you have done to not use any type of of hitting violence and she was like Oh oh it's hard it is hard and it takes creativity and I said what if you had just stood in between and turn your back to the boy and started talking to the the the little girl and she's like Oh Yep Yep could have done that like so you. I know you the intention. There isn't necessarily in the moment is letting kids be kids in live in their experience learn from that experience but then it's actually taking the intention engine of debriefing that experience any of asking the question you think. Jesus would have done if he was in your shoes in that situation you know having some of that intentionally L. E. wrapped into it because Jesus was for the week and who's for the marginalized and he was for the people who would have gotten bullied on the playground but Jesus was also so for the bullies. Geez you know still loved the jerks of society right He loved Zach uses the the Levi's and you know like he he he loved all these people and so. What does it look like for us to help our kids learn what it looks like to? I love others well in a very calm complex society. Nothing is easy for our kids in their online or offline life right. We're we're deciphering a very unique age in time of life and I think that unfortunately we need need to kick it up and noxious parents I realized that parenting is exhausting and I only have one kid and her tunes exhausting multiply that and it gets more exhausting however I think that our kids are worth the extra energy effort exhaustion to to disciple them well. That's so good I spent ten years outside of the institutional church kind of deconstructing and rebuilding the building and trying to figure out who I was who God was all that in the midst of that I had kids and so you know the young young age it's no big deal but as they start getting older and engaging with life. I'm already thinking Oh man I can remember the things I was doing the Christian Life at vis age. I don't just mean like going to church but you know having a spirituality of my own and aging with God praying and feeling promptings from outside of Myself Yaro met with one of my mentors. This is maybe four or five years ago now and and he said to me Jonathan I have no concerns about your faith. I think you're on a wonderful spiritual path but your children don't see a lot of what I get to see. I'm an adult yeah. I know what to look for. I you'll share your journal with me. Sometimes I know that you are wrestling honestly pursuing God but here kids don't see all those things and he's like just even statistically speaking if you're not involved in some kind of you know it doesn't and have to be Sunday morning church but if you're not involved in some kind of real lived Ecclesia your children are very likely to not have any kind of faith life and your grandchildren are statistically zero percent to have any kind of faith wow so he's like find something. You don't haight there. Yeah I mean you would join a baseball team. If you wanted to play baseball right like you you you just would and if there was a couple of jerks on the team you'd be like all right. There's a couple of jerks on this seems so be it and I realize that that is like a super simple fight thing but I think finding a church I can be very similar right. It's like you go to church because you want to be part of the body of Christ in this way that is very visibly here and you know president now now and are they going to be a couple of jerks on the team of course there. Are you know sometimes I'm one of sore but but but I think that's very true and when it comes to I like what you said in regards to your mentor because I think one of the things that the spiritual practices that we do that we do on our own that we you know like and feel affinity for in our kids. Don't know that we do those things. I think that's actually really problematic because if they're transformative or influence in our lives in some way and we've hidden he didn't from our kids. I think we've hidden some some gold from our kids like hidden so beautiful. I think there's a a friend of a friend I know who even when her kids were super super little she would do like a quiet time with God and I remember the friend asking her. How Oh did you do a quiet time with God when you've got you know toddlers. Go nuts in your living room. N Shoes like well. I taught my kids that when mummy lit this candle she's Special Candle an open your Bible that was mummy special time with God and the kids totally respected it she would you like I can't remember what it was twenty minutes or half an hour or something but a she got to spend her quiet time with God and be her kids got to see it and I think.

"Sat down adjustment kitchen to three and a half. If there's a little bit of winter weather thing going on then you could really be looking at an unusually strong year. One of the strongest that we've had in decades. Well, the strongest in decades, I guess that's good news unless you're not doing well, which case you go you meet everybody's doing better than me. But then again to take a look at what's going on in your life that might make it that way. For example. If you're somebody like Alexandria Cossio Cortes. A glass half empty kind of gal. Where the climate. It's all falling apart, even though I don't think it really is. She she certainly authors saying it is she's out there touting socialism, green new deal and Medicare for all and all that kind of stuff. She could really use a good schooling in the free enterprise system. I don't think she would ever take this guy up on it. But GOP donor foster freeze invited her to an economic events celebrating free-market success stories Bill rags to riches story here. He talks about the invitation. I think she's such a remarkable young woman. She's bright. She's someone who's gonna be around for a while. I think it'd be amazing if she could see how so many of Americans came from absolute, poverty and humbleness and chief great success. And I think that's the American dream, which if she saw more inaction she would be on different wavelengths in terms of her policies. So I think it's a way we could help her get exposed to people and ideas that has a really seen too much. Have you heard back from her? We we have not and if she's listening we're going to save her a seat. And so she comes in a last minute. She'll have a place at the table here. The great 'Presentation. Of the Gozo the weekend.

"And it was just like good Lord. Will he was well he was behind the whole like stop and frisk, right? Like just walking down. You've got no rights and you'd you'd get felt up by a bunch of cops. Yeah. And I mean, I kind of loath to defend them. But like, I you and I started college in ninety two in the Bronx. And that was like things were still very y. Wild. I mean, they were still like really, you know, there was a lot of crime. You can kind of see why people were like all right enough is enough. Like, I'm sick and tired of this and second tired of, you know, not being able to take the subway or walk in peace or whatever and he had the whole quality of life, broken windows thing. But then as with so many other things that just you know becomes stop and frisk. And you know, you know, people getting her it mostly people in the minority community. I would dare say almost exclusively people in the minority community getting harassed. You know, like, I I mean is it I think I I would say, you know, hated fend Rudy Giuliani, but it didn't work. I mean, the fact they would, you know, the the whole fixing up the windows and fixing up neighborhoods in stopping all the petty stuff. I mean, the big thing was the squeegee guys, you know, getting those guys and it. It did you know as as the neighborhood in community saw that that there was euro tolerance to this. You know, statistically crimes, you know. They they went down in improve. But it got to the point where it was almost like a totalitarian state with with the stop and frisk. So, you know, and he's just not no I mean, how a whole different animal, but I would just kind of wrap that up. I I have read where that worked out for certain segments of the population, meaning wealthier white her areas of the city, whereas in other areas of the city, it was more just harassment than more of the, you know, it crime didn't really drop it's sort of maybe took on a different form.
