Sen. Doug Mastriano Addresses the Key Issues Facing the Keystone State

"Said Doug master yano that this is looking like a record year for homicides in Pennsylvania. This is under Josh Shapiro. How long has he been in this position? He's been our attorney general for 6 years and on top of all this Eric. Of course, the Democrat playbook is dull debate your opponents call them names and then pretend you're a champion of women rights. So we passed a bill out of the house and Senate and General Assembly in June. To protect female athletes from being dominated by men, you know, to defend females from male domination in their sports. And of course, Josh Pierre fought against that and he rejoiced when governor won't be to that Bill. To make matters worse, this time last year, Josh appeared fought to allow boys and the girls bathroom. I'm sorry to allow boys and the girls bathroom in Pennsylvania. And then on top of all that, he sued in an amicus, Virginia. This time last year, that happened where boys were allowed into girls bathroom. This time last year in loudoun county, a girl was raped. This time last year, the dad found up a school board covering up and then he went to the school board to confront them and he was hauled out handcuffs. Josh Shapiro was on the wrong side of all the issues that mattered of Pennsylvania. And so the contrast was very stark. You have the continuation of radical, dangerous policies on a Josh Shapiro, or a new birth of freedom. And I'm using those words cautiously. Those are from Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg address here. But we need a new birth of freedom. We need the power to return back into the hands of the people rather than a centralized approach in Harrisburg.

"People were yelling things like, I don't want my head scarf and they want death to the rulers there. You are at the General Assembly last week, you spoke with president racy and after his speech, you spoke with him. What did he have to say about those protests? Well, I was with a small group of Americans who met with the Iranian president, there in New York. I've been doing this for 15 years. I've met with every president running president since hot to me. And the ten of us asked a bunch of questions and certainly one of the questions that was aggressively pursued was the question surrounding these protests. Now, I'm not going to say anything in this meeting that he hasn't already said out loud, but I'll say that he was withholding his position was quote. But withholding judgment until the judicial branch investigates the woman's death, but he did wonder out loud. Oh, perhaps maybe she died of other natural causes. And so, you know, he's playing it either way, sort of saying, well, wait for the official report, but recently, in recent days, he's certainly been clearly condemning the protests. Well, we've seen these huge waves of protests before in 2009 over a corrupt election in the late 2000s gas prices was one that triggered some. And there's always this moment of maybe this will be the moment when the regime will be deposed. But then it's violently and brutally put down. What's your sense now? Well, I think the process reflect real grievances by different parts of society. You know, there's this morality police issue, and the woman who died in custody, but the broadly speaking, there are economic problems from sanctions and mismanagement. COVID, climate change, the anger is real, but it's not really connected to a political program with a specific demand. So I think it's going to be hard to sustain, especially since the authorities have the ability to suppress it. And we only have a few seconds here, but there's a lot of talk about renewing the deal that would restrict Iran from developing a nuclear bomb. What did the president say at the General Assembly? He was open to it, but I think the reality is all the sites see it's international interest to do it, but there's no political payoff. They're not exactly enthusiastic about it. My guess is we'll see something in November. Jim Walsh, senior research associate at the Massachusetts institute of technology security studies program.

"People everywhere. I just one shock away from doomsday. The numbers don't lie. We need a 45% reduction in global emissions by 2030 to reach carbon neutrality by mid century. Yet, according to president commitments, global emissions are set to increase by almost 14% over the current decade. That spells catastrophe. This year, we need an avalanche of action. All major developed and developing economies must do much more much faster to change the math and to reduce the suffering. Of course, taking into account common, but differentiated responsibilities. A growing number of countries have committed to significant emissions reductions by 2030. Others, including some big emitters, have an economic structure, namely high dependence on coal that stands in the way. They need resources and technology to accelerate the transition from coal to renewable energy. That is why I am appealing for the creation of coalitions to provide financial and technical support for each of these countries that need assistance. Developed countries, multilateral development banks, private financial institutions and companies with the necessary technical know how, all of them need to join forces in these coalitions in order to deliver the needed support at scale and with speed. To the countries that need them. At the same time, every country must strengthen their nationally determined contributions until they collectively deliver the 45% emissions reduction needed by 2030. No new coal plants, no expansion in oil and gas exploration. Now is the time for an unprecedented investment surge in renewable energy infrastructure. Tripling to $5 trillion annually by 2030. And this is particularly urgent in emerging and developing economies. A strong reliance on renewable energy is crucial to avoiding the present fluctuation in fossil fuel prices. Every sector and every industry, including shipping and aviation, must be on a trajectory to reach net zero emissions by 2050. Wealthier countries must finally make good on the 100 billion climate finance commitment to developing countries starting in 2022. Developing countries can not wait any longer, and we need a radical boost for adaptation. The Glasgow commitment to double adaptation finance from 20 billion, its original figure is the nation priority and a first good step. But we would still be far behind. Access and eligibility systems must be reviewed to allow developing countries to get the finance that they need on time. Cop 27 in Egypt and the upcoming conferences focusing on biodiversity and oceans will also be important opportunities to protect our planet and all species on that planet. The effort required is extraordinary, but so too are the possibilities for bold action when people work together. We can draw inspiration from those with the greatest stakes in the future, young people. As with so many other issues, young people are on the front lines in pushing for progress. Let's answer their calls with action. The first three crises I have laid out. COVID-19, the morally bankrupt financial system. And the climate crisis represented Tripoli emergency for developing countries and the triple multiplier of global inequalities. They are my human rights and are a power for social unrest and instability. In it, better global governance is subtly needed to restore fairness, rescue the sustainable development goals and live up to our commitments to uphold the inherent dignity and the equal and the inevitable rights of all members of the human family. Excellency the force area is when we are global governance barely exists at all. We must go into emergency mode to put humanity at the center of technology. Technology shouldn't use us. We should use technology. And if government properly, the opportunities are extraordinary, especially if you can ensure safe and secure Internet connectivity everywhere. But growing digital chaos is better fitting the most destructive forces, and denying opportunities to ordinary people. In countries with low broadband connectivity, simply connecting schools to the Internet can grow GDP by 20%. Realizing such benefits require safely connecting the 2.9 billion people who remain offline mainly in developing countries. And women still lack far behind men in terms of Internet access. These years transforming education summit will be an important opportunity to help close the digital device and ensure affordable safe and security Internet services for all. And as we seize the opportunities that the visual world risks like the data is used, misinformation and cybercrime are already out spacing any meaningful efforts to address them. Our personal information is being exploited to control or manipulate us to change our behaviors, violate our human rights, and undermine democratic institutions. Our choices are taken away from us without us even knowing it. The business models of social media companies profit from algorithms that prioritize eviction outrage and anxiety at the cost of public safety. We need strong regulatory frameworks to change these business model. And for this, these issues, I have proposed a global digital compact as part of the summit of the future in 2023. The compact should bring together governments, the private sector, and civil society, to agree on key principles and their global digital cooperation. And these will reinforce the ongoing coordinated approach on cybersecurity to protect civilians and civilian infrastructure. And life proposed the global code of conduct to end for them. And the war on science and promoting integrity in public information, including online. We look forward to developing these with governments, media outlets and regulators. So many technological advances are underway in this domain. And I continue to watch member states to speed up work on banning little autonomous weapons and to begin considering new governance frameworks for biotechnology and neuro technology as outlined in our common agenda. Excellence is we need to go into emergency mode to bring peace to a world that cease too little of it. We face the highest number of violent conflicts since 1945. Military coups are back. Impunity is taking holds. Nuclear weapons stockpiles now exceeds 13,000. The highest level in decades. Human rights and the rule of law are under assaults. Populism, nativeism, white supremacy, and other forms of racism and extremism are poisoning social cohesion and institutions everywhere. The pushback on human rights, especially the right of women and girls continues. And my call to action for human rights is a pushback against that pushback. And we will always push back and push forward to defend human rights. Meanwhile, the climate crisis is fulling conflict and escalating humanitarian crisis. And terrorism remains a constant threat further destabilizing some of the most fragile countries in the world. So our peacekeeping and peace building capacities, the United Nations will always stand with and protect those who are caught up in the fighting and work to build stronger, more resilient and peaceful communities. And conflict prevention is at the art of the proposed new agenda for peace. I pledge to spare no efforts to mobilize the international community and step up our push for peace. Allow me to mention a few. In Afghanistan, to provide a lifeline of help for the Afghan people, inject cash to avoid an economic meltdown. In short full respect of international humanitarian law and human rights, particularly for women and girls and effectively fight terrorism. In Colombia, to sustain and deepen peace implementation, reinforcing UN support. In Ethiopia, to guarantee the end of hostility, all hostilities, and also humanitarian assistance everywhere in shooting a lasting ceasefire and withdrawal of foreign forces and promoting an increasing dialog involving oliphants. In 80, to encourage and support 18 led solutions to the deep link political and institutional crisis, craft a new constitution and plan elections in a secure and peaceful environment. Regarding Iran, to support talks to revive the joint comprehensive plan of action, as well as engagement between Iran and its neighbors. In Israel, Palestine, to encourage parties to refrain from unilateral steps, including settlement expansion and violence, and to help revive the peace process and paved the way to ending the occupation and achieving a viable to state solution. In Libya, to promote dialog, support presidential parliamentary elections as soon as possible and push for the coordinated withdrawal of foreign fighters. In Maui, to continue working with all national and visual stakeholders towards the restoration of constitutional order to schedule elections with an acceptable timetable and stress in the peace agreement. In Myanmar, to work for the restoration of democracy, delivery military needs and mobilize international support grounded in regional unity. In the SIO to address the root causes of poverty and the development and governance challenges and ensure robust support to the G 5 and its joint force to predictable and sustained funding. In Sudan, to realize that people's democratic aspirations and support an inclusive intra Sudanese political process in Syria to advance the full implementation of Security Council resolution 22 54 reconvene incredible Syrian lads seated O the UN facilitated constitutional committee released the Chinese and continued efforts to reach all he needed with humanitarian aids. In Ukraine, to reduce tensions, and those that all issues be addressed exclusively through diplomacy. In Yemen, to reach a lasting ceasefire, open access to the country and restart an inclusive political process to end the calamitous 7 year conflict. On nuclear disarmament and non proliferation to make the most of the ten Senate theory review conference reduced nuclear risks and take steps towards nuclear disarmament. And we will persevere in our efforts to prevent conflict, protect civilians, and consolidate peace. From the western Balkans to the Caucasus, from Central African Republic to Cyprus to the Democratic Republic of the Congo. From Iraq to the Korean Peninsula to Lebanon, from Mozambique to Somalia, from South Sudan to Venezuela to the Western Sahara and beyond. This world is too small for so many hotspots. We need a united Security Council fully engaged and addressing them. And geopolitical divides must be managed to avoid chaos around the globe. We need to maximize areas for cooperation, while establishing robust mechanisms to avoid escalation. And in all we do to secure peace, I'm committed to ensuring that we are at the center of our conflict prevention, peace making and peace building efforts. We know that this efforts are more successful and sustainable when women are a full part of the decision making and mediation and peace processes. We are increasing the number of women peacekeepers. We now have more women leading our field missions than ever before. With parity among our heads or deputy heads of missions. And 40% of the peace building funds focuses on gender equality and women's rights. We will continue building all these important work in the coming years. Excellence is the sheer number of conflicts. I've touched upon is yet more evidence that we spend much more money and resources managing conflicts than on preventing and building peace. We need to seriously review our priorities and resources across the peace continuum. Stressing the investment in prevention and peace buildings. Across all these challenges, the world needs a strong and effective United Nations to deliver results. Our reforms have been crucial, and we have made significant progress over the last few years. As we built on this game, the continued support of member states is pivotal, but equally with respect to the annual program budgets. Excellence is our responses to the 5 emergencies I have laid out today will determine the course of the planet and people for decades to come. We must go into emergency modes and put out this 5 alarm fire. By fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, reforming the global financial system to ensure a just recovery, tackling the climate crisis, putting humanity at the center of the digital world and frontier technologies and delivering sustaining peace. My report on our common agenda, which tells us a general 2030 and the sustainable development goals offers a road map together the world together in solidarity to address this governance challenges and regret multilateralism for the 21st century. Together, let's make 2022 year in which we forge a new more hopeful and equal path. Thank you..

"Out an ambitious global agenda at the un general assembly. Here's how it compares to reality by ian bremmer. Everything is easier said than done. And that's especially true for big challenges like for example trying to establish america's place in the twenty first century world or persuading other governments to place their confidence in you but no matter how tall the tasks we shouldn't dismiss a presidential speech at the united nations as only hot air with that in mind. Let's look closely at president. Biden's i address to the united nations general assembly last week and compare it with the choices. The biden administration has actually made the agenda biden laid out at the. Un was plenty ambitious. His priorities are ending this pandemic addressing the climate crisis managing the shifts in global power dynamics shaping the rules of the world on vital issues like trade cyber and emerging technologies and facing the threat of terrorism as it stands today does he mean what he says. Covert nineteen biden has pledged to vaccinate the world and he told the un that the us has shipped more than one hundred sixty million doses of covert nineteen vaccine to other countries with promises to do much more through kovacs the global vaccine facility. The president also held a virtual cove nineteen summit meeting on the u. n. g. sidelines last week to demonstrate his administration's commitment to leading the ongoing pandemic response today. The us has donated more vaccine than any other country but to raise the number of people vaccinated worldwide from the current thirty percent to the for seventy percent by september. Twenty twenty. two experts estimate that eleven billion doses will be needed biden has committed the us donate five hundred million more doses of the pfizer vaccine to developing countries beginning next year. But if that goal is to be mad his administration needs a clear stance on booster shots for already vaccinated people and for first shots for less at risk young people mixed messages from the biden administration on this question leave other countries wondering what they can expect from the us and other wealthy governments if they prioritize providing booster shots for their own people it would make the current goals virtually impossible to reach extending covert nineteen's life in much of the world and poorer countries have good reason to be skeptical washington as promised five hundred eighty million doses but has so far delivered.

"general assembly" Discussed on Transition Virginia

"And we're back on transition virginia. We're gonna talk about missed opportunities. Things left undone. What did not happen this year. And what do we make of that. So open question here to the panel. What is the most significant thing that did not happen. This year. I think the one that a lot of people were expecting something to happen on Because it was receiving a lot of attention was repealing mandatory minimums from the state code. The virginia state crime commission at the beginning of this year had endorsed abolishing all mandatory minimum sentences from the state code that something like two hundred plus offenses when it came time that it was introduced in the general assembly. The senate had a version that was going to repeal the vast majority of them. I think except for class when felonies. The house took a much more conservative approach. Which is know. It's rare to save their taking the more conservative approach in the senate But they were mostly just limiting it to drug offenses and some firearm offenses and so my understanding from talking with senators and delegates. Was that once that hit the conference committee and a handful of senators delegates went to go discuss. That is that they were just so far apart that they just couldn't get around to doing anything four house like what were the different sides on that. I mean the senate just really felt committed to it needed to be much more From what i heard you know the senate was willing to a narrow it down a little bit but the it seemed to house was not willing to even go back with a pair down version of the senate proposal delegate mike mullen who was a prosecutor. He had called the senate version controversial and so he. He gave a speech On the last day when they were closing out on saturday. Just kind of lamenting Getting anything done on it. But i know that senators morrissey in serravalle were really you also digging in their heels that needed to be more comprehensive of course. This is all part of the larger debate of particular relevance to the to the republicans. And that is you know the law and order themes that were really essential to The republican party's ascent or re ascent starting in one thousand nine hundred ninety three with the election of george allen as governor elected on a promise to do away with parole and require full sentences for felons and there was a dust up on this toward the in the in the closing hours of the of the legislature over Over the parole board and whether it has been sufficiently transparent in handling those few cases of Of parole eligible felons See if richmond A police officer was shot. Dead in nineteen seventy nine individual. Who was convicted in that That shooting was eligible for parole was granted parole but there seemed to be A lot of questions about how. Open the parole board was In handling this case. Marco shayna senator from Rockingham county up in the valley A a a law and order guy. If there ever was one unsuccessful candidate for attorney general Has been banging on this or was banging on this issue in the final days of the of the general wisdom. You know another bill that failed Was a bill introduced by delegate. Kelly converse fowler. That made it through the house on cyber flashing. Now this was one of the cringe-worthy discussions from this year. You may remember last year. There was a similar cringe-worthy bill that had to do with Massage parlors and happy endings and there are some very difficult conversations. That was difficult to listen to. I should say. And then this year there was some again cringe-worthy discussions about essentially sending dick pics and sort of prosecuting people for sending unwanted obscene photos. Again this made it out of the house and then when it got to the senate there were the senate panel killed it and there was some hurt feelings there because there were some of the senators who killed it they were all male and there was thinking that they didn't quite get what was going on. What did you make of that discussion. Well i was that. The senate judiciary committee has always. I think to me the most entertaining one to follow just because a lot of the senators. Come up with these scenarios that could get you know some contract somebody in some kind of bill that they're putting through sort of you know these unintended consequences and so you know their position. Was that this. Language about sending unsolicited. Sexual photos is just so broad. And you know proving intent is is really key here. There were just like you know. People were floating. You know somebody could send a picture of the statue of david. And now you're going to get charged as if as if that's really you know what's gonna start happening is we're going to have people you know lined up in the courthouse over you know pictures of artwork but that was sort of what it was about in any goes a little learn little hard to watch. It looked like the delegate was kind of just getting a little bit emotional trying to plead with these older men Who are sort of being a little little dismissive sort of seen the little simple jokey at times She just wanted to give a fair hearing to our bill and they were kind of just ready to shelve it. And you know what happened to that discussion that you don't see much of the attorney for the committee was i don't wanna say he was dismissive. But i got the sense. The lawyer for the committee didn't particularly like it didn't necessarily like the way it was structured. Or there's something about it that he he felt like maybe it was incomplete or something. What did you make of that discussion. Yeah he was kind of posing scenarios to and took issues with it and seemed like he didn't have any kind of solutions to fix it up to to deal with then So i don't know if this is something that's gonna come back in the future so we'll say by the way if you think this is bad now. It wasn't too long ago that lawyers were in the majority in the legislature. And this sort of Shall we say scenario building Which can border on the ridiculous Was was really something of a A high arch then but You know the the optics of older guys talking about an issue with a an apparent measure of I dunno levity and maybe that is particularly startling for Women i i expect. We're going to be hearing more about that in a campaign context when Come this fall when the house is a but certainly in In twenty twenty three when Some of these senators are standing for reelection.

"general assembly" Discussed on Newsradio 700 WLW

"Health care. It's shameful. Also, something in General Assembly can fix by passing this legislation. Need to make sure in Ohio people are adequately paid to take care of their families. The point to make it has been made before. There's been no time since the beginning of the minimum wage that it was ever intended. For someone to be able to take care of a family making minimum wage. Um Which is something it's not pointed out people many people seem to think. Wow, you spiel will take care of all those things. And now it doesn't. How do we slipped so far behind? It was never intended for that. Man was intended of, obviously for political points way back in the day, but the minimum wage was not something and when I was a teenager and got minimum wage jobs, I didn't know anybody who expected to be able to live on that. Nobody thought they were going to get an apartment. Nobody thought you gonna get a little house with a white picket fence on minimum wage. That's never what it was intended to be. And now people are like, Well, this This isn't right. It's not paying all the bills it never did. So we jumped to the new age where we pretend the first of all the minimum wage, different ways to look at this. How do we decide how much we want to work for you Tell May I say Hypothetically Austin. Uh Did you go pick up lunch downstairs for a nickel? No. Recorder. No. About for a dollar. No. Let's say it's a Dunkin Donuts across the street. About for five bucks. Now it's raining. It's ugly. It's called now don't feel like it. All right, 10 bucks. Okay, I'll go Pick it up the time box. Then a third party steps in it. No, no, You have to pay him $15 to go over to Dunkin Donuts and pick up lunch. So what? We just agreed to tent. No, no, no, no, Let's be 15. Say, Well, my lunches even where 15 bucks Skip it. Won't eight. Dunkin Donuts is out a couple of bucks. Often or whether the person might be is out $10 because someone stepped in and said, You have to pay them or than the agreed upon rate. It's the same for any job in my first job I had was a gas station job. And I would not have done it for a nickel in our I would not have done it for a quarter an hour. I would not have done it for a dollar an hour. At some point, I forget how much I made. It was probably minimum wage or a nickel above or something. Eventually, they got to the point where I said yes, it's worth my time and effort to do that for that amount of money. Yes, I was. I made twice that much. The reality is it got to the point where I said to myself? Yes, it's worth my time and effort to do that for that amount of money. And that's my business. Now somebody else comes along and says no, That's not enough. It should be twice that much. It would be nice to me if my boss over here is willing to pay me that But, he says now Eventually that kind of did happen they went to when I first started pumping the gas stations they didn't have self serve. And We got kind of excited because they started building canopies over the pumps. So wow, So we go out there When it's raining. We don't get all wet pumping gas. We go out there in the snow or not getting pelted with snow. Not what happened. They got rid of us. People pump their own gas and went to self serve. Ostensibly to charge them less for gas, but I don't know that that's what ever happened. So this whole idea of somebody artificially coming along? And saying, You have to make more than you agreed to work for is crazy. It would make no sense when I first started working or working today, at some point, someone says, like, here's the salary. You want it or not? Yes, I will do that for that salary. No. Some third party steps in isn't done. No, no, it's got to be this got me disappear. Then the company has to decide if they think I'm worth that amount of money. I mean, I didn't ask for it. It's nice and somebody else is doing it. If it pans out for May, and what happens is people end up losing their job. Because many jobs it's not worth paying someone that much money to do what they're doing. And back to the whole idea that a minimum wage was never supposed to be able to be something you could make a living off of. It's just become a miss. No more overtime that that's what it was back in the day, and somehow we lost our way. No, we never did. Here's the question. If you're a firm believer, $15 an hour is a minimum. Do you pay your baby sitter? $15 an hour. I don't know how much a baby sitter goes for these days. I'm kind of curious. Well, I would assume that you do at least pay your baby sitter $15 an hour. That's the minimum somebody should work for, or anybody else who does any work for you. I would hope that's the minimum that you're paying them. Guesses. In many cases, you're not You think $15 An hour is a great minimum wage if you don't employ anyone. I don't know how many people who employ people think that should be the minimum wage. What a lot of us vote for things that don't affect us or they affect us in a positive way, because we might get the $15 an hour. Are you paying people.
