"Turn of the century straight into the nineteen sixties and did it very effectively during World War One and World War Two and during the Great Depression. So it's a solution that works and for banks to pose it just shows how foolish out of touch they are because these are customers they are not interested in you've mentioned Mitch McConnell couple of times blocking legislation would like to see come to the floor and. So. It's looking pretty good for Joe Biden and there's a reasonable chance. Democrats could win the White House ANTIBAC- a Senate next year if that were to happen, what would what do you think the first order of business would be for? Democrats. What is the most important thing to deal with first Democrats took the house in two thousand, eighteen they passed hr wine, which had a lot of. Cleanup Clean Government procedures, anti corruption, a provision, and things like that. What would the Senate be interested in a Democratic Senate? Well, certainly, I support every provision in hr one. So getting money out of politics having ethics reform good government reforms that's hundred percent necessary but I think going to be still in the middle of Kobe. So I think we need to pass whatever Mitch. McConnell is not willing to let us do. We can pass a hopeless one of the first bills would ever not passed in this code for package. We could then move along with whatever's needed at that moment in time but sitting state money getting rid of the salt changes for state and local deductions in Newark has been crippling for middle class families making sure we fund. The local governments and states that desperately need our resources That's going to be a priority. No matter what they don't see McConnell allowing those provisions are always all of them to go through. Joe Biden is willing to raise taxes. Our audience finance cares a lot about this because he one of his policies is to raise the business tax from twenty one percent up to twenty eight percent. Let's still lower than it was a few years ago could Congress conceivably do that in twenty twenty one in the middle or immediate aftermath of this recession wherein? Will absolutely Congress would certainly debate issues taxes to see what makes sense but I think where we really want to focus our attention is on access to healthcare improving education system a job training that's where the common ground lies in this country healthcare education jobs, and so I think the agenda will be focused more is that as well as getting my etta politics because we've seen the corruption in corrosion of democracy because special interests and so one of my priorities will be getting money out of politics is there shingle provision you would champion right now? For the future yet gnashing money our politics Oh yes. My provision which I wrote during the presidential campaign It's called democracy dollars in it basically says, if you're willing to be a publicly funded candidate than you agree, you won't accept contributions over two hundred dollars and then you you accept contributions in the form of a democracy dollar from the voters that. Would vote for you and then that can be reimbursed for resources for your campaign on that alone would change everything because they did that in Seattle and it changed to ran it change to one and participation amongst women lower income individuals, minorities increased exponentially, and so it made a difference it creates good government and then the things that seems so impossible like. gun reform or immigration reform. Or election reform all those things stop having massive impediments in their way because that's what's funded by the special interests. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand Democrat of New York.

"Welcome to Yahoo Finance percents I'm Rick Newman join us today Democratic Senator Kirsten Gillibrand of New York senator. Gillibrand. Good to see you again. Thank you. We're GONNA talk about the stimulus bill. A lot of people are very eager to know where this is likely to end up. So the Democrats have already passed a bill of House Democrats. I should say, that's about three trillion dollars in stimulus the Republicans in the Senate bill for one trillion. So is it fair to say that this is likely to come out somewhere in the range of, let's say one and a half one, point seven trillion or so at the end of the process. We. Don't really know There's not a lot of meeting of the minds I'm most aspects of this legislation yet. Democrats are desperate to fund our cities, our states, and our local governments I just talked to to the county executives from Ireland, and they're facing budget shortfalls. The next eighteen months of about a billion dollars each. So it's hugely important that we fund our local state governments in fact, local and state governments and budgets are a third of our. GDP. So we really do need to care about how our local governments are working. So, there's no agreement there and there's no agreement on some of the overarching themes of what we want to support. This is still a triage. Ville we want money for food stamps. We want money for sick days money for paid leave money for first responders and healthcare professionals more P p. e.. And that doesn't seem to be part of the Republicans. worldview. So we've long way to go but. The negotiations can begin in earnest now that Senator McConnell has released his version of what he liked to see, and hopefully we can get to a robust bill that actually funds things that needs to be funded like our first responders. So for those of US looking in from the outside. I mean, if one trillion dollars is the key, if you call that the Republicans opening bid I mean, isn't it? Likely you'RE GONNA get some of those things you're asking for perhaps even a lot of weight or asking for well Mitch, McConnell's bid the things he's prioritized or not things Democrats are prioritizing. For example, he said no uncertain terms. It.

"Allows the allegation of harassment. Brought up into the open it allows to have juries decide these cases to have a courts of law decide these cases that are transparent. And it's a better way to hold perpetrators accountable. It's a public system. It's not done in private. It's not done behind closed. Doors and getting rid of both the forced arbitration and the nondisclosure agreements that allow survivors to come forward and hold their perpetrators accountable publicly so that they can not continue to harass and not continue to get away with it just by fighting a settlement one the reasons we rewrote the laws in the Senate and the house was because the way it was set up it took three months to even report that you are being harassed and then when you when you did go through this process you're month of mandatory cancelling for you the survivor and a mandatory cooling off period just was designed to make sure you'd never reported so we were able to get that bill signed into law. December. Twenty one two thousand eighteen and it's really good. Bipartisan compromise. Several bills that were introduced by me and my colleagues and it just makes a better system where members of Congress if they are accused and found have harassed they will be personally liable for playing the awards and settlements stemming from their acts of harassment. Right and I think that the other affect of being able to know that you can go to an open. Jury process is that it might actually stop harassers from harassing right. Once they once they know that women have a voice in the system. They're like Oh maybe I'll change my behavior. Potentially you know so I think that. There's there's a dual effect there gretchen and Senator Gillibrand have been working on a bill that would avoid forced arbitration for sexual harassment and discrimination claims in Workplaces America. Gretchen and Senator Gillibrand Bill. The ending forced arbitrations of sexual harassment. Act Was introduced to the Senate in two thousand seventeen alongside Republican Lindsey Graham. The plan is to rally representatives on both sides of the political spectrum. Gretchen launched a national organization dedicated ending practices that prevent employees from discussing workplace harassment and assault in late. Two Thousand Nineteen. She founded lift our voices with her former colleague from Fox Julie Roginsky..

"Gretchen. Carlson once have been forced arbitration and workplace sexual harassment discrimination cases forced arbitration clauses in Employment Contracts Shield companies and perpetrators from public scrutiny. They also stripped workers of their right to be judged by jury. Workers pushed into arbitration are often required to sign confidentiality or nondisclosure agreements meaning. They can't speak out publicly. It's a system that shields harasses and discriminates against Workers Gretchen has first hand experience of forced arbitration in two thousand sixteen. The Star journalist was demoted and then fired from Fox News after refusing. Sexual advances from her boss. Roger Ailes. She went public with her complaint. Prompting many other women at Fox to come forward their own allegations. Roger ailes resigned but not before he attempted to force Gretchen into secret. Arbitration Gretchen has since teamed up with the Democratic Senator Gillibrand to change the law around forced arbitration. The senator has been allowed critic of sexual assault and harassment throughout her political career most recently on the campaign trail as a Democratic presidential candidate. She has advocated for survivors of sexual assault on college. Campuses and in the military Senator Gillibrand and Gresh and Carlson won a safer and fair workplace for people across the country. They're women there. We have been fighting about changing the law so that when people get harassed at work when they have a boss or colleague who is constantly harassing them on the basis of their gender that they don't have to restrict they can take their claim right now. Most employment agreements have these forced arbitration clauses as well as nondisclosure agreements set into their employment contract and so they when they start working they just. They don't even know that they're bound by these and what we found. Is that when you do come forward because you've been harassed and are forced into arbitration? A number of things happen typically. The landscape isn't as good as a trial would be typically a trial results in more convictions and much higher rewards for harassment in terms of actual financial compensation. But if you have to go through arbitration you're likely to get a smaller award and you might not even win. It's sometimes an opportunity to be out lord and the companies typically have so much disproportionately more power than you. As an employee does and so at our bill would do is end force arbitration it would void forced arbitration agreements that prevent sexual harassment survivors from getting the justice. They need so it'd be a just across the board void and that would allow more people to go to court if they WANNA be heard by a jury of their peers exactly and you know the other thing is you. Don't get the same amount of witnesses and arbitration. You don't get the same amount of discovery. The worst thing that I think happens. Is that the the woman or the man. If the man happens to be a victim is is silenced. Forever and the perpetrator gets to stay on the job because nobody knows about it and then because of the nondisclosure agreement you can't even tell your colleagues can't tell your girlfriends the workplace like avoid that guy because this is what he did to me so it's really hard because it allows perpetrators to stay in place to continue to harass and it's very problematic..
The Mind Financing The Future
"When powerful people use their advantage to engage in new involuntary transfers of wealth safety or freedom from those too weak to defend themselves. The winners are almost always forced to create an idealism as a cover for their siphoning in simpler terms. These idealisms are actually cover stories or bespoke fig leaves which almost exactly fit. The extraction are taking that they are tailored mask once. This is understood. We realized that to test this theory. Each wave of idealism would have to be matched to a highly specific effective confession for an injustice that pervaded the era in which it was found. This concept of idealism as disguising theft is of course an upsetting cognitive shift get is therefore naturally initially difficult to come to see the waves of idealism that characterized each era that we have lived through not as the best of our aspirations for a better world but rather as the photographic negative of the greed of our own ruling classes for example. The idealism of United States competitiveness was everywhere in the nineteen eighties and early to mid Nineteen Ninety S. At that time it seemed to be about the need for all Americans to pull together and get back into fighting shape as a country looking below the surface however it was not really about the need of managers owners and workers to pull together through shared austerity to reinvigorate American industry. Rather it was a false idealism. That instructed organized American Labor to give up hard won gains that were then not matched by comparable sacrifices from the other groups. Once the United States Labor had been sufficiently humbled in attenuated in its power by the Mid Nineteen Ninety S. The drumbeat of patriotic competitiveness gave way to the post National Davos idealism of a world without borders singing the praises of Financial Inclusion Trade Immigration and philanthropy with the Maudlin sediments of nine hundred eighty five. We are the world as its anthem. The purpose of the Post National Movement was not to include those overseas but instead to allow the wealthy of the industrialized world to break the bonds with their fellow citizens of the working class and to access cheaper labor. Pools abroad using far-flung supply chance likewise the idealism of so-called constructive engagement with governments like communist China's would be seen through this lens as the rationalization for ignoring issues of human rights and strategic risk in such a way as to benefit economically in the short-term selling out American interests in the long-term meanwhile back home in the states the techno Utopian perspective that arose dominate. The Bay area of California held. That information just wants to be free and that now. Transparency is king because privacy is dead perversely as you would expect in this theory. This hippie dippy sounding digital vision is exactly what ushered in the surveillance economy as the platforms became not windows but half silvered mirror through which the social media barons learned every intimate detail about their users. These startups turn techno behemoths. Turned the most intimate personal details of our private lives into their proprietary business. Data which was as far from free or transparent as one could possibly imagine the idealism of gender and identity to fits the exact pattern second wave feminism seemed to be about recognizing the intrinsic worth of women in the workforce but it may also be seen as an employer dream to push out the labor supply curve in such a way as to make the previous single breadwinner household require a second income just to keep pace the politics of identity which caught fire in the wake of the twenty ten. Colorado Senate upset are explained largely by economists. Pm Alana's theory. That identity is the cheapest substitute for the Labor Voting Block which demanded far more significant economic concessions. More bizarrely the strange media ritual of pointing the finger of Islamaphobia at anyone who dares ask about a mass murderer in which the killer triumphantly shouts of the hawk. Bar Emits. Bloody and sadistic mayhem may well be about protecting transfer. Payments from oil-rich monarchies while the official admonition to see the Niqab hit job burqa and clitoridectomy predominantly ethnic differences or symbols of female. Liberation is so absurd to go along way towards establishing the need for some theory. Is this to fill the space. The left-leaning idealism of making housing affordable for all that too many bad loans inflated the housing bubble while the right-leaning Ayn Rand Ian Idealism of self regulating markets practiced by Alan Greenspan allowed the banks to privatize gains while socializing the risks losses. The giving pledge to May well be an attempt to keep governments from clawing back unpaid taxes from carefully sheltered fortunes or establishing wealth and asset taxes in a period of radical inequality. In this sense it can be seen as something of a bargain if I promise to screw over my own children for charity. I hope that you will leave me alone and unquestioned to enjoy my vast and carefully sheltered wealth while I'm alive and as we have just seen with the Biden endorsements from Speaker Nancy Pelosi Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and former Senator Hillary Clinton. The metoo movement appears to be less about sexual assault and more about adding a tool for extra-judicial vigilantism which can be wielded selectively or kept sheath according to taste suffice it to say that. Hashtag believe all women has now given way to hash tag believe convenient women so you may ask. Why bring this up now? Well in my opinion what we need now is someone who is not part of any of the official idealisms. Of course that would have sounded quite weird in isolation if I had simply said that we need an anti Utopian to lead us. Wouldn't we want someone envision a dreamer doer hybrid two point the way? No we want someone who is not signed on for any of these horrible anti patriotic charades from either party. Someone who never believed in free trade free markets nationalism housing for all deregulation competitiveness etcetera etcetera. We need someone who is not closed with Jeffrey Epstein who does not possess significant financial relationships abroad. Additionally someone alienated by both the hardline pro-life pro-choice perspectives. Would be perfect for where most Americans are today since the time of Nixon. We've been in an era of predatory idealism with our best impulses used against us from both right and left. It is now time to get back to the hard work of cleaning up from two disastrous generations of failed business people politicians reporters in professors and perhaps most importantly we need to flush our dependence on near totalitarian communist China out of our system before it is too late

Tom Steyer polling at 2nd place in South Carolina, qualifies for DNC debate this month
"Meanwhile what's going right for Tom Stiers the California billionaire and presidential candidate will be on the debate stage tomorrow because of his unusually high poll numbers his polling jumped in two key early primary states last week a fox news poll showed him at fifteen percent in South Carolina that puts him second behind only Joe Biden and he's tied for third with Elizabeth Warren in Nevada at twelve percent it'll bump joins me now his national correspondent for The Washington Post any right about how Stiers shaping the twenty twenty election hello hello well before we get a star let's just talk about Booker what happened with him essentially what happened with him is that he was never able to get real traction his campaign and there are a lot of reasons that's probably the case one of course being that the field is so big another being that there are other candidates who shared his his sort of broadly moderate space in the field who were able to get more traction people like judge from Indiana were really able to get to eat into that space and sort of present themselves as new in a way that that Booker had trouble doing you his is the story of a lot of these cameras which is that it it's hard to get in front of orders nationally and brokerages was able to do it right and he certainly complain that one of the reasons he couldn't get enough facetime nationally was the DMC the debate rules that the DNC put forward he criticized the rule saying that billionaire candidates like Styrum Bloomberg can really game the system because they can put so much advertising on TV and really attracts people in in Paul's does he have a point there is he's got extremely good point in that the DNC rules were created specifically to trying well we know down the field but by doing so what the DNC ended up doing an advert only was rewarding people who were able to make a very strategic massive investments in certain places I and punish those who weren't so well Booker did have a national a profile as a senator from the from the state New Jersey he was not able to for example spend the kind of money that one could to either influence individual polls or get his name out and ends and get a lot of small donors to give to his campaign and that limit is is rich well speaking of let's hear a clip of tape from CNN yesterday where Jake tapper is specifically asking Tom Stiers about spending money for poll numbers ninety one percent of television ad spending in South Carolina is from you ninety seven percent of television ad spending in Nevada is from you do you not think that it's your millions and the flood of advertising in those states that that's why you did well in the polls and are now on the debate stage Jake if you'll read today's Washington post there's a story about this and what it details is what's actually going on on the ground I've been to South Carolina multiple times we have eighty two organizers on the ground in South Carolina I match your grass roots person I've been there there's someone who didn't endorse me who's a politician in South Carolina who said expire came down here he rolled up his sleeves he went out he listen to people he sat across the table he work okay so feel of what's the truth there is it's the money buying the polls or is he actually doing the work to get the support I mean a I think it sort of gives the game way himself when he says he has eighty eighty however many organizes on the ground as organizes aren't working for free and you can you know Cory Booker didn't everyday organizes on ground is gonna forty eighty organizer's on the ground right I mean did tappers numbers about that TV spending or write us tire is dominated in South Carolina and Nevada television spots in the reason he's done so is very simple the democratic rule said you need to be at a certain percentage of support in the early state polls in the waste tires I'd do that was poor bunch of money in the states that so far other came it's like Joe Biden Bernie Sanders aren't spending money in because they're further down the line right but Snyder has the money he just sort of put a bunch of money into the states in advertising there he can put a bunch of staff in those states push up his numbers in those states and hit the mark he needs in order to make the debate stage but will that translate into votes when it comes down to it when it comes to Iowa to New Hampshire and then later to South Carolina and Nevada so far it hasn't seemed as though it's going to work I mean one of the things he's clearly trying to do is get on the debate stage but after his debate performances it's not as though he suddenly shoots up in the polls he still only about two percent nationally debates are obviously something that should be reflected in national poll numbers because there are national events of people tune into I think one of the things we're going to see is after Iowa New Hampshire we will see whoever does better in those states start to see more support in the next two states down the line though as being South Carolina and Nevada and I think that'll start to flood out some of the attention it's Dyer has bought for himself and it's certainly possible to maybe Stiers all out of the blue find today big appeal from Democrats nationally so far though even though he's managed to get on the debate stage he hasn't been able to make a case the really persuades lot national Democrats to support even though he was early on the impeachment wagon he took out ads along time ago basically calling for Donald trump's impeachment is that not translating into support in the Democratic Party now aids late hasn't so far I mean I think that there certainly was an aspect of that that was that was viewed by a least among political observers as being someone self serving was pretty clear that he was using impeachment of sort of get his name out there I that said even though he has your right for months you know well over a year and sort of blanketing the airwaves with his own image and this call for impeachment again he's a two percent nationally in the polls and that too if that we're going to have an effect would be reflected in those national poll numbers so he'll be on the debate stage tomorrow but Michael Bloomberg will not and why is that because he certainly has been blanketing the airwaves with ads right but in different places Bloomberg has made a conscious decision not to take contributions from people and that has meant that he's it's impossible for him to meet to debate standards which require a certain number of contributions from people around the country and as such will Bloomberg Astana's he's were largely issued the first several states that are gonna be voting and really focused on super Tuesday the first Tuesday March when a bunch of large states on a lot of states including California and Texas go to the polls so Bloomberg spent a lot of money on ads but he spent it in those other early states he hasn't spent a lot in South Carolina or Nevada and if you look at the rationale behind that it makes some sense there are a lot more delegates at stake in that first Tuesday March then it will be in any of the four states that come up before then so do you see Starfire as this campaign goes forward into super Tuesday DEC Stiers star waning and Bloomberg's taking off one I'm not even sure that the star has much of a start of Wayne and it certainly did well in this fox news poll on some other polls that that have been doing moderately okay but he's not doing very well as a candid Bloomberg being a part of lunch money in the race he's not doing particularly well either but I think the Bloomberg strategy is designed to pay off later in the cycle then is tires I animal I mean star has enough money to stay in and told the general election if you want to do which is something the Bloomberg says he's going to do is actually so I don't see our missile dropping out anytime soon just question how much money he wants the perk right so it ends worth noting that he's rich but he's not Bloomberg rich right it's like one point six billion verses fifty four billion yeah as Michael Bloomberg will point out very few people are Michael Bloomberg rich right well what does this say to you when you take a step back and look at the whole big picture of money in politics what is this a two year does money translated into votes can you say about this early well I mean obviously when we're talking about these poll numbers were not necessarily talking about votes I'll be interested to see if Stiers decent position and some is always winning states were pointed out to buy his winning in both those states right now it's gonna be interesting to see if it does translate that certainly has in the past in the case that people have been able to pour a lot of money into campaigns and do better than you might have expected but again that doesn't always hold driver Jeb bush in twenty sixteen add you know nine figures that he was gonna spend both directly and have people spend on his behalf needed terribly in the presidential primaries so so it's not a one to one correlation but it's clearly the case that we are right now talking about Tom star and Mike Bloomberg while we are at the same time watching established US centers like Cory Booker and Kirsten Gillibrand standing on the sidelines after having announcer campuses money definitely does by you the ability to stick around as long as you want

The Marshall Plan
"Couple of weeks ago we visited the george george c marshall foundation in lexington virginia and we are here. It's next to the campus of the virginia military institute. George marshall is this v._m. Is most prestigious alone ready darren. I'm ready. The foundation was really excited to have us and to be honest. We were pretty excited to reserved parking for mr result ski and mr woods anything's ever been resorted with my name on it. The building looks like an armory cement. Now a lot of frills like a police where you would wait out a nuclear winter or hide plutonium good morning good morning good morning. We all knew we were there to meet a guy named age poll baron. I grew up in houston texas and then after college marine corps and served for twenty four years. I was air controller and a helicopter pilot as anybody buddy told you you have a resemblance john mccain. I've heard that paul does kinda actually look like john mccain. He's wearing a navy-blue jacket with a pin. Tell me about that bad on your jacket foundation pin. It has five stars on it. Five star general marshall was a five star general polls. An expert on the military strategist and statesman hates men. George marshall came over sway to ask him but something that's come up again and again in the presidential primary debates. Everyone's talking about the marshall plan julia alien castro. One of the things i proposed in my plan is essentially a twenty-first-century marshall plan for central america kissed gillibrand. What congress needs to do is pass. A marshall marshall plan to rebuild puerto rico make sure candidates are calling for marshall plan to fight climate change a marshall plan to improve national infrastructure structure forward a douglas plant and the reason we call it. A plan named after a person is not just in honor of frederick douglass to remind us of the marshall plan. That's buddha judge. He's calling for a marshall plan for racial equality and here's hillary clinton a few years back calling for one in appalachia. We have to have like the equivalent of a marshall plan. Bush called for juan obama. You get it and this isn't new. Actually there've been calls for more marshall plans since the original marshall plan which by the way began in nineteen forty eight that year someone called for a marshall plan for stray dogs and cats but no one is being really specific about what a marshall should plan actually means. It's just like this magic. Catch all never mind. The details will fix it term so those made us wonder what actually was the marshall through plan. Why is everyone always talking about it but kind of never really doing it. Hello welcome to planet money.

"They're doing so in some of the most dishonest ways I've ever seen. We'll get to the twenty twenty candidates in just a second. I, I have to show you how Alexandra Kozel Cortez responded to all of this. So the inimitable AOC brilliant, brilliant woman. She tweeted out, Alabama lawmakers are making all abortions, a felony punishable with jail time, including women victimized by rape. And incest. Of course. No added punishments for rapists is going to governor Kay Ivey desk. She will decide the future of women's rights in Alabama. Okay. So she's just lying here. The Alabama law does not criminalize the women. Okay. Women who are victimized by rape, and incest, do not go to jail. And when somebody pointed this out, then started to lie, Liz, Wheeler, pointed this out and started to lie like a rug. She said, actually would be a felony for women if those women are medical providers. See according to your own semantics standard. You lied. We can fact, check obvious antics, all day and make absurd bad faith claims. If that's how you want, if you how you. B but I have better uses for my time. No, you don't then then saying silly things. No, no, no. You do that, like fulltime. So she just lies right? Her original tweet is women or victimized by ribbon. Incest, could go to jail. And then when called on that she goes, what I meant was female abortion doctors foam might drop. What a liar, she is. Okay. But she's not the only one who is lying. Kirsten gillibrand who is, of course, one of the foremost, democratic contenders for zero percent of the vote, you know, let's play some Kirsten gillibrand theme music. What do you? Taking every physician on every possible topic. That is true for gun rights, and now on abortion. She is taking the position that Alabama passes a law, and somehow that is a national attack on reproductive freedom. Please explain Kirsten gillibrand. How states that are not New York are passing laws that don't affect New York. And that's a national attack on reproductive freedom. We have to shine a light on this issue. We have to raise up voices of the women who will be affected by this Jakonen an inch humane policy and make no mistake. This is a nationwide attack on women's reproductive freedom on their basic civil rights and basic human rights over twenty nine states in this year alone are attacking women's constitutional rights, and we have to fight we have to fight now harder than we've ever fought before inspiring stuff from a woman whose immediate family might vote for her in a primary. So Kirsten gillibrand. Pushing this Cory Booker goes even further Cory Booker Spartacus as it were. There's Cory Booker such a brave individual. He comes forward. He says, all even pass a Bill legalizing abortion nationwide. So who's nationalizing the issue? Now, Cory Booker Alabama passes a law New York passes a law, you say you want New York's a of govern everyone Cory Booker, but don't worry. It's only Republicans who want to nationalize the abortion issue, even though Rovers his weighed nationalized. What had been at that point state issue? Those of us who are running for president have a chance to affect the national conversation. We are not helpless in this fight in the face of extreme injustice. We must organize and we must do the kind of things that New York did, which was enshrined. Ing Roe v. Wade codifying that in law, and we can actually do that, in congress by passing a Bill that protects women's reproductive rights and make that federal law. The land is it's pretty amazing. Again, Democrats people like Chuck Todd saying that this, these culture wars, they only animate Republicans democratic candidates saying they want national laws that allow. How abortion, basically up till points of birth like New York federal laws that do that. But don't worry Democrats are certainly not nationalizing the abortion issue. Then you have Elizabeth Warren who is fearmongering in the extreme. She says they're over they're going to overturn Roe versus Wade Pocahontas. Yeah. She, she's, she's very moving in to say, anyway, Elizabeth Warren are native American Senator from mobile home. Oh, no. She's from Massachusetts in any case was with Warren..

"Most of the time presidents who fend off a primary challenge. Do wind up. Like, your annual is a perfect example. I it's hard to know that exactly the reason. But if you're a member he was more moderate compared to some of the party he was challenged by someone to the right of him. And so it makes it so I think people that show up at the primaries there less motivated because they see that there's someone that's more right than him that didn't get through. And they don't get out to vote as much. Here's what I will say because I've been at many of these GOP conventions. I never seen a loyalty. Like, I have with Trump, and they are willing to put things aside because he speaks this anger that they have felt for years and years against the media against Democrats is not where I am. But I'm telling you the mood that I feel when I'm on the ground. I was not surprised that he ended up winning because he finally represented them someone who could speak to that two years ago. But that was two hundred. Aren't fully behind the president. Right. That's going to be very different. I hope it's going to be very different. After seeing the Miller report after seeing the despicable behavior that we now know is coming out of the White House. I think that Americans want a chain on something. That is one part of the conversation. But these aren't the delegates that show up to the convention. They have has now given into the fact that Russia can can interfere in our elections. You know what I don't wanna see one of them wearing a flag on selves. And they will you know that little flick pin. I don't wanna see that you do not with at anymore long as you think Russia is more important than the United States who do not wear that flag. That's the one above forty. I wanted to be in the car or on your chest. Well. This is a conversation. That's going to be ongoing because lots of things are coming down the pike, and we'll have to pay attention. I know that we have to go. So I can't say Jack. So I'm just going to say we'll be right back. Later, the beautiful people who people magazine picked for the cover of their beautiful people of the year issue.

Do you know who is told his staff to skip the White House correspondents dinner this weekend, which will not feature comedian MC? She doesn't need a calm. Does anybody need to everybody? Just stay home and have good night. Do they need to do the correspondents? Didn't they should of course, give the scholarships out? And would shouldn't it be about that? Or should it be about the car spun, and this I mean, how can you do correspondence? If you don't have a person in charge who has a sense of humor. That's the problem. But I mean, it's supposed to be it's supposed to celebrate a free press. And you know, I yeah, I really enjoyed going. And, but it's unfortunate because not only do we have a president that doesn't seem to have a sense of humor. He doesn't seem to enjoy the fact that the constitution provides for a free press. And I think that's why he's telling the folks within the White House that they can't go I've always loved this dinner on and we've all been, but it's like the one time of year, you can be under the same roof with people from the White House, and the press corps when the rest of the time of the year, you know, their it's checks and balances they're constantly going at it. But it's the one time you can let your hair down. You can have some drinks. You can make fun of each other. Reagan was one of my favorites..

"Washington's mall, W M A L. Washington comes to talk. Welcome back. This is the Ben Shapiro show. With Bernie Sanders in the race. The Democrats have their first through pure democratic. Socialist the guy who is going to say all the unstable things get rid of private healthcare insurance. Nationalized swabs of industry regulate and tax up the wazoo. And that's a problem for a lot of the Democrats in the primaries for going to have to decide whether to attack more to the center and draw contrast with Sanders or whether they had to follow him down the primrose path because stuff that maybe popular in the primaries is not going to be popular in the general election. Now, there's certain candidates who are who may be able to read this needle. There are a lot of candidates will not be able to one of the early candidates is going to be out. I think pretty soon is Kirsten gillibrand the Senator from New York delusional, Senator from New York Kirsten gillibrand, stay music. Do you? Nobody knows why Senator gillibrand is running. Nobody knows what's your thinks about any issue. In fact, voters are not all that interested in Kirsten gillibrand at all in a hilarious turn of events. She was speaking in Iowa and a woman decided to simply walk right by her. And then just she's like I want my ranch dressing, man. Chris. And Jill people can't see that is why should subscribe at daily wires. You could actually see this stuff but Kirsten gillibrand is standing at a bar trying to speak to a throng of supporters. And this woman is just trying to get through and Kirsten gillibrand said what are you doing? He said, well, I just wanna ranch dressing. I'm not interested in anything. You have to say all I want is ranch. I feel like this is the American public with the election at this point. What we want ranch dressing. That's all just leave us alone. He's got a ranch dressing, please. Maybe the reason that this lady wanted ranch dressing is because she didn't want to listen to Kirsten gillibrand pander with regard to immigration Kirsten gillibrand as her theme song would suggest used to be an immigration border hawk. Now, she says that maybe we should dismantle existing border fences. And she says that indigenous people should be allowed to return to their native land, which I assume means getting rid of the border altogether. Here she is trying to pander to her heart's content in Iowa. Going on at the border. Are indigenous to this and that? And that border. That's why the wall is absurd because indigenous people are native to the United States who should have a wall. So people should be able to cross the border illegally because eight generations ago, their parents, great, great great. Great. Great. Great great, grandparents lived in Arizona. Yeah. They're not open borders. These Democrats they're not radical in any way. There's just they're not radical.

"Nobody really understands what her positions aren't anything because she shifted all of them, which is why she gets the Justin Bieber treatment here. Nobody knows what the hell. She means. Whether she's saying, yes, or no nobody knows. So there's a great article at the New York Times today talking about the fact that Kirsten gillibrand may not have any positions, but she is a woman, and that's all that matters all the matters of the Kirsten gillibrand is a female human. We know she's a female human because she says, she's a female human. Maybe she's a male human if she decides to Marsh's nail human. Maybe she's a male human, according to the times. But right now, she's campaigning as a woman. So the New York Times has a piece today called this is my space Kirsten gillibrand unabashedly feminist campaign the morning after the election of Donald J Trump Kirsten gillibrand woke up and began crying bawling. She corrected herself. Now normally, wouldn't you think this was like an anti feminist stereotype? Woman wakes up the morning after election, and she just starts weeping. Like, if I said Kirsten gillibrand just out of the blue I said Kirsten gillibrand that lady probably probably wept that after the election or something that oh my God, sexist, stereotypes, sexist trope. The New York Times opens with that little story to demonstrate that she's a female. It's a little awkward. The New York Times continues after spending the next two months, deeply depressed. My god. It's like they're fulfiling every stereotype of emotional females in order to paint Kirsten gillibrand as the parodied Matic human female, the junior Senator from New York experience, but she called the most inspiring day of her political life the women's March and almost two years to the day after that miss Jill LeBron sat in Manhattan wine bar, holding a glass of Pinot Noir, and described why she believes the country and the Democratic Party an unabashedly feminist campaign for president. And why she thinks she's the candidates run it. So basically, she has every female stereotype wrapped up into one and she woke up the morning after the election crying. And then she spent the next two months deeply depressed presumably should ate a lot of chocolate. And then she went to the women's March where she felt very inspired by seeing a bunch of women wearing pussy, hats and. Then she now does interviews at the New York Times at a Manhattan wine bar, like every female stereotype has now been checked all we're lacking in the democratic female stereotype categories that she had a couple of abortions when she was younger that would make her a full female, according to the Democrats at the New York Times you understand. This is my space gillibrand said in an interview, I don't know if my party will get as far as I will go on a lot of these issues, but I believe in them so strongly what exactly are her issues? No one knows. What does she mean? But she is a woman and AL's a woman that means that we are supposed to pay more attention to her because she does not have certain male parts at a moment when women are sentence in democratic politics and polls show record gender gap between the parties miss, Jill, Brandon. Her adviser see an opportunity to ride a wave of women's political energy right into the White House. I'm getting a bit of deja vu flashback because I have to say wasn't this exactly. Hillary Clinton two thousand sixteen campaign. Didn't they play fight song at the two thousand sixteen DNC? That obnoxious terrible song. This is my fight song. Wasn't that the routine when Kirsten gillibrand is doing that again, except she has switched more positions than Hillary Clinton? And also, she is even more unlikeable than Hillary Clinton a near impossible achievement for human. Well, multiple women are serious contenders. For president for the first time in American history says the New York Times miss Jill brand is the only one who is making a running as a woman four women the central theme of for candy. What the hell that means? It turns out lots of women disagree on the issues because if women actually voted as a bloc one hundred percents of all representatives in the United States would be women since women represents about fifty three percents of all the people who vote women don't vote as a bloc women vote as individuals as general rule, but we're supposed to believe that Jila brand stands for all women. Well, I mean, I guess you could I mean, I just said that women have positions all over the place so does Kirsten gillibrand. So in that way is completely reflective. Whether her campaign is successful. Or not says the New York Times news article, not an opinion article her campaign is successful or not miss Jill. Lebron's approach. We'll test how much views have changed on issues like discrimination, sexual harassment and female leadership after two years of an administration that has embroiled the country in an emotional debate over gender bias the administration that did that. Or was it the media and Hillary Clinton that did that during two thousand sixteen so Kirsten gillibrand running as women that is the update from the shocking and wonderful gillibrand campaign, we'll get to the other candidates and what they have been doing. And their theme songs that we have picked in the last twenty four hours, and I'm excited about it too. Then just a second first, let's talk about your.

She's particularly drawn attention for her unapologetic challenge to men who abuse their power, including Democrats. She said Bill Clinton should have resigned after his affair with Monica Lewinsky, and she took a lot of flak for saying Al Franken had to go to Al Franken is a friend of mine, he did great work and the judiciary committee. So it was really hard and really heartbreaking in a conversation on the view. She was challenged about being too aggressive on the matter and she did not back down. He's entitled to hearing. He is.

"Reporting on the domestic story in the United States looking at the mid term particularly a Senate race and a governor's race. We started New York Kirsten gillibrand is running for the presidency in two thousand twenty. She's bold about it. She doesn't hide the fact that she's preparing herself and raising money for the primaries for the Democratic Party. But in the meantime, she's facing reelection in New York in a decidedly democratic machine New York. Hence, everything is about what the blue Democrats want. There's no Republican here at the moment. I welcome Aaron because he has published a column at Breitbart that takes us into gillibrand transformation from a moderate democrat talked about weapons having owning weapons to a left is not adequate. A progressive democrat who is taking striking positions against Israel with BBS and against the success of Israel, these last years in defending itself against Iran, Aaron very good evening to you. The transformation is surprising. So we need to comment on why what is an explanation for Jill. Lebron appointed by governor of New York. To fill to serve out a an unfinished term that would be MRs Clinton's what is in it for her to move against Israel and against those who support Israel in a state that is dominated by the pro Israel Jewish vote. Good evening to good evening. And I think actually visit this gillibrand at our move clearly into the anti Israel camp, clearly and transparently taking positions neater positions that can only be interpreted for what they are. And that is anti Israel. This is deliberate. It has to be a deliberate. And I think that it says a lot about the future of the democrat party in twenty and twenty because LeBron as you mentioned used to be a moderate democrat. She was in fact, pro and RA, and you look at the way that she seems to be going with the political wins. And it seems that she believes. In order to position herself in twenty twenty those political winds dangerously within the democrat party, look like they're trending toward anti Israel ideology. And I think that goes along with the last elements of the progressive of anti Israel side by side with I would say anti patriotic ideology, certainly anti-capitalist, certainly sort sort of borderline socialist ideology. So to me, it's one thing, and we expect it when we see radical. Let's say like Bernie Sanders who has scandalously promoted HAMAs propaganda. In fact, he's going further than HAMAs claiming, for example, that Israel killed ten thousand people in the Gaza war when even a mosque didn't claim that claiming Israel bombed hospitals on student exactly claim that it's one thing to see a within the. Progressive establishment? Let's say with a Cossio court has also a New Yorkers open the radical. But the fact that you have a political Adamo lake Jila brand somebody who has to be doing this as a political calculation to me. I think this sets off alarm bells. I'm looking at what's happening in Europe right now, especially the transformation that we're seeing also within huge chunks of the UK labor party. And we do need to ask some questions about whether the democrat party is also trending in that direction in that direction. Again is clearly the anti Israel camp. So I wrote this piece it's five reasons Senator Kirsten gillibrand is dangerous for Israel. And I go through we had many reasons, but we boil down to five those reasons and and to me they're stunning. Let's begin the first one because this is about the Democratic Party. Senator Ben Cardin is. One of the sponsors of the Israel anti-boycott act in the governor, and the congress, and this is to oppose the BBS movement the boycott divestment and sanctions movement. Not a controversial boycott opposition. Not at all. And Jill LeBron was for it before she was against it is that the fact not only wish you for it. Actually, she was a sponsor. He was one of these sponsors originally. Israel anti-boycott act, which couldn't be more straightforward. And then all of the sudden, she meets with the ACLU, and then she had a bunch of town halls where you had radical anti Israel groups showing up like Jewish voice for peace leg US campaign for Palestinian rights, and they're questioning her about her support for the Bill, and then she withdrew. So it's not just that she in general withdrew support she actually withdrew her legislative support from clear Bill this Bill that couldn't be any more clear in that it opposes the extremist illegitimate. BDI's campaign that tries to up boycott and the single out Israel, the only democracy in the Middle East, the only democracy, by the way Kirsten gillibrand me leader where women in the Middle East have equal rights, whereas the BBS movement doesn't go after or even actually ignores the Muslim women throughout. Out the Middle East who are being persecuted. So she pulls away from that. And then she tried to kind of have it both ways she said that she would support a future Bill. She says that she has some problems with whether this impedes on free speech. How will actually the democrat members of Senate at her colleagues have explained to her? This has nothing whatsoever to do with free speech. And also, I know that there's a particular radical anti-israel radicals name as Raphael Shimono of who was associated with brands campaign. He's one of the owners of if not now, which is a radical anti Israel group and also founders of Jews for Linda as in Linda Sarsour, who was closely associated with children, he takes responsibility for Gelo Brad, backing off the BBS bills. I don't think it's about free speech. Clearly, she goes to a bunch of town halls where anti Israel protesters. Confront her about this. He says this anti Israel activist says he's behind flipping gillibrand on the BDO. So we have that. Then of course, you have gillibrand provided really critical support at a time for the Obamas. Disastrous nuclear deal at a time where you had some key Democrats going both ways wavering, and then Hulett brand supports it. And then you have other Democrats jump on the Obama again scandalous very dangerous Iran nuclear deal bandwagon. So she also very much helped there with the deal that BB Netanyahu. Of course, had was so nervous about that. He addresses a joint meeting of congress to Warren. And there's a very rare friend has really prime minister deal to do about this deal. Also, I'm looking at Jila brands praise open praise in time magazine. Zien for anti Israel, radical Linda are sore, of course, famously said nothing is creepy or Zionism. And then she claimed that you can't be a feminist Zionists. Which again, I point to the fact that is the only country any entire Middle East, Linda wrestler where women are treated equally. So actually, a feminist by definition should in fact, must support the state of Israel. She comes out, and she has praised source, or including in a time magazine piece where she wrote about Sarah sore. He's spoken at numerous events with source or with other be the leaders. And so yes, I'm very concerned about that. Here's the puzzle sh- doesn't Chile brand. Oh, her success to Chuck Schumer. He sponsored her originally when she was appointed to the Senate seat, and he endorsed her all to my memory all through these last years. What does he say about this controversial conduct by hers this transformation? Well, you know, not much publicly. And and I would like Chuck Schumer who has on many occasions, Al evidence himself say what you will about domestic politics as a pretty stable supporter of the Jewish state where the Iran deal, for example, quite quite quite a quite at the at odds with President Obama at the time. So where is he when his colleague in New York is clearly taking a calculated against Israel. I actually would love to see major members of the democrat party who support Israel and then by the way by the very definition support western civilization and. Democracy. Do something about what seems to be. A troubling is problem within the democrat party? And this is part of the struggle. And the fact that you have gillibrand who you know, I don't know what she believes. But she has until recently been a pretty staunch supporter of Israel. The fact that she was is toward twentieth. Twenty would take this seat change is really telling she's gone to town hall events where she cited, and I have all of her quotes in the article with an anti Israel activists who claimed that Israel doesn't respect Palestinian rights. And then also she she accused BB Netanyahu who has been begging mock Mata Alba's to come to the bargaining table. At who by the way, has offered in the past Arafat, and then all boss, a state numerous times and Israel has she accused him of not having a plan for peace, which is. Is absurd while ignoring of course, the fact that the Palestinians have walked away from every plan ever given to them. And in fact, instead have started into Fatah's rejected that she didn't criticize that, and I also know that gillibrand, and I think that New Yorker is should pay careful attention. She voted against confirming David Freedman as President Trump's or Israel. And of course Friedman is a star. In fact, I don't think Israel has ever had American ambassador more pro Israel than David Freedman as part of the backbone of support for the Jewish state, and she voted against him, very interesting. And she is now reelection campaign for twenty eighteen but her eyes on twenty twenty. So we have much to watch and Senator gillibrand presuming she's successful. This is Aaron Klein of Breitbart Jerusalem, we're going to Florida next and the Florida's. Gubernatorial race. I'm John Batchelor. This.

"What they want. This isn't even about Rosenstein. That's my point is about Trump. The New York Times is doing this. They're not doing it. Because they dislike Rosenstein, they have loved Rosenstein up to this point. They've defended Rosenstein, they've defend the department of Justice. They've defended the FBI, and why shouldn't they that's all their sources. But this one's different. When you see, ladies and gentlemen. When you see a stampede in one direction, you better stop and pay attention to what's going on here. It's like investing. Everybody's moving that way, you probably should move another way. So we have a stampede now. With the liberals goading the president Schumer today, you'd better not fire Rosenstein, a better not. Meaning he better fire Rosenstein that'll show us how us and then you have. People on our side who haven't really thought this through very, well, they're knee jerk. They're knee jerk. The cavenaugh case in this case really have a lot in common. When you think about it? They're all about politics throw about getting Trump. The robot advancing the power the left. I don't need lectures from Kirsten gillibrand about women. I have a mother I have a wife daughter have a granddaughter. Stepdaughter ever mother-in-law, plenty of women in my life to talk to she's not one of them. She's a left-wing hateful hack. Who had no problem? Walking hand in hand with Bill Clinton as recently as two years ago. When he was running raising money for her. We don't need lectures from Democrats about women. When Ted Kennedy led that party for decades. We don't need lectures from Democrats about women given what took place in.

I'm gonna do I'm gonna go. Gillibrand Senator Kristen Kirsten gillibrand. I wonder how she's going to take this news because I wanted to put an I meant to do this in the first hour, but sometimes things just get away from you. And certainly if you want to weigh in four zero four eight seven two zero seven fifty one eight hundred WSB talk as we start to rapidly lose the time here on Atlanta's evening news. But this is what she said just a day and a half ago about the about the the the allegation from Christine Ford, how she's divulge who she said bulge to overtime over many years. That's exactly what happens when someone has this kind of trauma and so it rings true. And so we need a proper professional appropriate review and hearing and what they're forcing on her right now, I think is inappropriate then she goes on to say who is not asking the FBI to investigate these claims the White House, Dr Cavanaugh excuse me, John judge Cavin has now. Not asked to have the FBI review. These claims is that the is that the reaction of an innocent person. It is not. So here you go. And I said that the first hour, apparently, we're flipping the tables you're supposed to go to the FBI to the police to local law enforcement. Anytime you want to prove you're innocent. You're not giving the presumption of innocence. According to an attorney turned Senator, you're not giving the presumption of innocence. You're giving the presumption of guilt and the only way you can assuage your guilt only way, you can get anyone to believe that you are not guilty. Is you have to go turn yourself in demanded an investigation of yourself. And then you're okay to say, you're not guilty. Well, Kristen Kirsten gillibrand gillibrand whatever your last name is maybe maybe I was in Washington DC when you brushed up against me. And maybe you need to go to the FBI right now and tell him you didn't intend to brush up against me because I felt myself violated my intimate space was violated, you brush, I could just say that. Right. I mean, didn't she say that didn't she say as long as you're credible? That the truth just finds a way of coming out as long as you sound credible. I could sound really credible. I've been on stage before Eric.
