How Harvard Grad Julie Hartman Went From Liberal to Conservative
"About your nexus with Dennis. How did you hear about Dennis and how on earth did somebody who was, I think, 21 at the time end up being the youngest person to solo substitute a national radio show in America. That was a really fun day, Seb, except that halfway through my first segment, my producer told me in my ear, and this is live radio, as you know, that governor Cuomo had resigned and that I needed to announce it on air. And I thought, are you kidding? This is my first time guest hosting national radio. I'm 21 years old and this breaking news has to hit, but that's why it's cold life radio, and that's why it's so much fun. It's like the military, every plan lasts for as long as first contact with enemy. And that's why what we do is so much fun. So tell us how it all started. Yes. So I was actually a liberal for most of my life. I told you that I am from Los Angeles, and I went to super lefty private schools, and then I went to Harvard. And so I was on the left until the summer of 2020 and it was really the Black Lives Matter riots that did it for me. And seeing, you know, people who I really respect succumbing to this radical racial ideology that the United States is inherently racist and that we have to defund the police. That just really shook me. And I thought, if this is the left, this is not who I am. So I decided to go online and Google what do conservatives think about police? And they're popped up PragerU and there were several videos. I think Larry elder's video was the first one I saw about policing and from there I just went down a rabbit hole and I realized, oh my gosh, I'm a conservative. Who knew? So I ordered all of Dennis prager's books and specifically his book on hang on, hang on all of them. You need a library to order all of Dennis's books. There are about, I think there are 9 of them. And I ordered them, but we were in quarantine SAP, so I had nothing better to do than to read, reread.
Mel K and Eric Know Elites Don't Care About the Little Guy
"Things we were talking about Mel is that there are people elites who do not for whatever reason care about the little guy. And sometimes it is on a very personal level. They can be contemptuous of someone standing right in front of them, but usually it's more abstract. And it reminds me of the famous scene in the third man when Joseph cotton is up in the prater in this Viennese. It's still there. I've been on it Ferris wheel, and he's up there with the Orson Welles, who's the villain. And Orson Welles looks down and says, you see those people down there, they look like moving dots. They're so far away. What difference would it make if a few of those dots just stopped moving? In other words, if some people die and I can make money off of it, does it really matter? And if you don't believe in God and the sanctity of human life, why should it matter? And for a lot of these people, it doesn't matter. So when you hear about former governor Cuomo or others putting people in nursing homes, realizing people are going to die and it's going to suit you. They don't care. But it's hard for most people to get their heads around the idea that you mean that guy who maybe I don't agree with them and stuff, but you mean he could be that bad. Yeah? Or the banality of evil. Well, that's what I'm saying. It's a place in life where you don't care. And I think that we have to really examine this. And people have to go out there and understand the whole conspiracy theory world saying that sonstein writing a whole book to say that anything anyone saying about Obama was a conspiracy theory after the whole war and report, if anyone questioned it was a conspiracy theorist created by the CIA, we have to start looking at actual conspiracy, not the theories, the facts, and the fact that we have identified who these people are. And they don't hide it, and they have a big meeting coming up, and people should be watching the World Economic Forum, and the Davos meetings coming up themselves and listen to what Noah harari has to say and listen to what Klaus Schwab has to say and listen to what they're talking about with global governance. And then head on over from that website. We form dot org look around there at global governance at smart technology at biometric data at what they want to do with our climate with our government and start really thinking, wow. And then go look at another one of the affiliated websites. The UN website are common agenda. Then you jump over to World Health Organization. Global health won, where you jump over to the Gates Foundation, or you jump over the IMF for the World Bank, or the BIS, and you start to realize this is a club.
Democrats Admit They Don't Care About Constitutional Rights
"Sad part about this is the Democrats on the House judiciary committee don't care about the constitution as well. And I just want to point out this today because this is really, frankly, very disturbing because we've talked about this before on this podcast. The term salt weapon is not a definable issue. You walk into a gun store and say, I don't want an assault weapon. It's not a term. It's made up term that was came from the gun control movement who said that we needed a gun to the conclusion that they needed a scary title for guns that they wanted to take away. And if they made them scary enough by sounding like a weapon of war, again, if I hear one more gun control advocate or one more Democrat say this, the weapon of war, it's amazing to me that they hone in on these rifles, but yet, you know, so many things for huge in the battlefield from handguns, that they never talk about. They, again, be very clear when you're listening to this podcast. The reason they're willing to use these terms is they're wanting to scare you. They're wanting to make these guns sound. It's like something they're not. There's often reference to automatic and semi-automatic weapons in which they will confuse the terms just like former former governor Cuomo did in New York State when talking about a semi-automatic weapon or semi-automatic weapons while at the same time showing a video of a fully automatic weapon.
The Post Millenial's Libby Emmons on NYC's Suppressive COVID Rules
"Libby emmons. Without further ado, welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. Thanks, Andrew. Glad to be here. Yeah. Thank you so much. Okay, so you are a manhattanite. You are a lover of the Big Apple. Unbelievably, you're still there. Given everything that's happened, you have a son. I think it personal, but everything that's been happening in the news with mask mandates with the schools, hotel, Eric Adams, I want the update. What's going on right now with masking COVID restrictions, vaccines in New York City? Okay. Yeah, I'm in Brooklyn. I used to live in Manhattan, but I have made the jump across the river. So many other people. So what's going on? We have a new mayor who has decided to up ahold the vaccine requirements that the old mayor put in place. So there's still these rules where you can't go to restaurants or movie theaters or Broadway theaters or so many other places without showing your vaccine card. New York is a cultural place. It's a cultural capital. So these vaccine mandates essentially lock people out of the cultural life of the city, which is especially damaging, I think, for kids and kids are locked out as well. Anyone over the age of 5 is required to have this vaccine this vaccine passport, you know, you have to show your thing. There are even some bars that I know of. One of my favorites where I will never be going again, that is now requiring you to have the act. There's this excelsior app that governor Cuomo created back when he was the governor before he was run out of office. And you have to show your medical status via an
CNN's President Jeff Zucker Resigns for Not Disclosing Relationship With Colleague
"Jeff Zucker is out the president of CNN. He's been there for 9 years and ran the whole operation. He is now leaving again after 9 years allegedly his decision, although a lot of people are speculating that there's a whole lot more that has gone into it than perhaps. Jeff sucker's decision. He announced his resignation because he had a relationship with one of his coworkers. She is well, came out and announced that, in fact, they had had a relationship, and that she looked forward to continuing to work at CNN. She's going to stay on apparently the relationship happened during COVID. There are a lot of people internal sources that sort of dispute that and speculate that this has been going on for many, many years. She's a colleague of 20 years and had worked with him in numerous other places. That aside, one of the things that struck me about this was that I did not realize this woman who was in charge of marketing and PR for CNN had also worked for governor Cuomo, governor Cuomo, yeah, as his PR who sometime before coming to CNN. So, that kind of helps to crystallize perhaps in some ways the protection that you saw around Cuomo's brother who was an anchor at CNN. And now it's like all unraveling now. It's like, you know, all hell is breaking loose because in the investigation into Cuomo and whether he was helping his brother out at CNN, it's now come up that maybe some other people were trying to help him out too. And I think what it does is it reinforces everyone's real skepticism about the media industry. And sleaziness aside, it makes us question how incestuous interesting or choice and sensuous it all really is.
"governor cuomo" Discussed on Max & Murphy on Politics
"Again, affordable housing shortages are not new news to us. Got it. And then some of the other questions we're really excited that she's talking 10,000 supportive housing units in the next 5 years and a 100,000 more affordable housing starts or renovation renovations, we have to see how that's going to translate governor Cuomo had also made that commitment, but never actually delivered on it. So I think the legislature is very attuned to wanting to make sure that money that is committed is actually spent as committed because that's another reason we seem to have so much extra money this year. It turns out while we put money into budgets year after year, governor Cuomo didn't choose to spend the money. So he was sitting on lots and lots of money that never got released..
Tucker Carlson Defends Chris Cuomo for Helping His Brother
"I think Cuomo, governor Cuomo, the act of not only face a misdemeanor than he faced a criminal charge, a woman claiming that he put his hand right up under her shirt and grabbed her breast, awful stuff, and so Chris Cuomo, the prime time star of CNN scrambling to try to help him, it was revealed this week that he played a bigger role in all of that than was first revealed and he's been suspended indefinitely. Tucker Carlson, who's a Chris Cuomo critic, no fan of his argues who wouldn't do what they could do to help their family no matter what you did for a
Former New York Governor Cuomo Charged With Misdemeanor Sex Offense
"Right. How about more good news for Republicans? Bad news for the Democrats, which, frankly, I hate to say it, hate to be this partisan. Bad news for the Democrats means good news for America. Here's some more bad news. The disgraced ex governor of New York Andrew Cuomo is going to be arrested. They charged him yesterday with groping a former aide in the executive mansion. It's a crime that could send him to jail. He's going to be as I understand it, booked processed, I guess we're going to see an Andrew Cuomo mugshot, huh? Will there be a perp walk? You know, New York loves its perp walks. They like taking people and marching them in front of a parade of photographers with their hands handcuffed behind their back. Well, we see that with Andrew Cuomo. This is an incident that allegedly took place on the afternoon of December the 7th. On the second floor of the executive mansion.
The Vaccine Is Supporting the Abortion Holocaust
"Talking about the vaccine. And how i see this shift in the culture where people like you And me were being demonized for saying. Don't get the vaccine you're saying don't get the vaccine because it's made with aborted babies. I mean explain that for a moment so that everybody who cares about the life issue understands. I've got a piece of street not with a subtle subtle title. should we get vaccinated at our right hands or forints asking for a friend. And what i need to imply into. We should seriously think about what it means when the government says you must take this mark on your body or you can't buy and sell in the marketplace that has kind of biblical into me kind of makes me think come the apocalypse now. Maybe this isn't the apocalypse. But maybe just maybe it is. And if we consider that this vaccine for a disease that was invented in a weapons land by communist scientists and then intentionally spread by the chinese around the world we know they sent flights of china all around the world purpose. While locking down all travel in china we know that governor cuomo in whitmer purposely dumped cova patients on nursing homes killing off thousands of helpless old people walk closing the churches while imposing emergency election measures. That allowed them to steal the twenty twenty election oral lease. Things are tied up together. But let's cut to the root of it. Every one of the vaccines has been approved in the west was he was either developed using. Hit me cells taken from an unborn baby girl. Lame johanna in the netherlands in nineteen seventy two. Or if like the pfizer madonna ugly vaccines. It was tested on those cells. The league this sack scene is fruit of a poison tree. If i ask people if you'll mangla had taken an francs kidney in nineteen forty three and cloned it. Would you take a vaccine based on that. And they say no. Let's offensive offensive. So you wanna be part of mad holocausts. You're comfortable being part of the abortion holocaust. Which isn't

The 'Liberal Leaning' Media Has Passed Its Tipping Point
"We're talking about governor cuomo's resignation and i was just mentioning. That governor cuomo has been playing dirty politics for a long time. But i want to be fair and of course some republicans play dirty politics two. I'm not just confining this to the democrats and i know a lot of liberal counterarguments to what i'm saying would be well. Trump had that famous click on the boss a few years ago when that was horrible. But i'm not here to defend donald trump. What i'm here to point out is the disparity between the way that the media hammers and investigates trump. And how the media never hammered and never investigated cuomo and this. We we see this time and time again with conservatives hounded for things that the left gets a pass on how about this whole tax scandal that came out with trump a few months ago when everyone was up in arms saying that he paid only seven hundred fifty dollars and federal income tax. Meanwhile very few people know this. There was an irs report that was leaked that indicated that jeff bezos the richest man in the world elon. Musk the second. Richest man in the world and george soros all had multiple years where they paid zero dollars and federal income tax. The scandal is not that this happens. The scandal is that it's legal and the scandal is again that they will hammer trump and conservative republicans for things that they will not hammer the left for. Because if you are useful to the media they will protect you they were. They will overlook just about anything that you
Let Us Not Forget All of Andrew Cuomo's Shameful Scandals
"Want to dive into talking about governor. Andrew cuomo's resignation. I mentioned last segment that two days ago i guest hosted for danis and it was my second segment of the show. And i remember sean. The technical director telling it to me in my ear. And i thought oh my gosh so i was. I was lucky enough to break it on air the other day and my immediate reaction was how he able to get away with this stuff. Not just the sexual assault allegations but the nursing home scandal. This we have known about this for a year and finally governor. Cuomo has no choice but to resign and the media has no choice but to report it. Some could say well the media didn't know they know that he was harassing all of these women. I don't quite buy that. I think perhaps the media did not now but it was a willful ignorance. They didn't want to know there've been rumors circulating for years about governor cuomo's conduct with women way before he became governor and there's also a lot of evidence that he's been playing dirty political games for years. I encourage all of you to go online and find out more information about the smear campaign that andrew cuomo was believed to have run on mayor. Edward coche back in the seventies when his father koch. Excuse me koch back in the seventies when his father mario cuomo was running for mayor and koch and cuomo were competing for the democratic slot for mayor and andrew. Cuomo was working at the time on his father's campaign and cauti- was believed to be gay. And it is also believed that andrew cuomo put out a horrible smear campaign in an effort to publicize that fact and discredit him. So i again. I encourage all of you to look up the slogan on the internet. It's it's terrible and and dive into that because it really it really shows the way that andrew cuomo place he plays dirty

"John. You're you're alleging in the previous segment that these blue state governors cuomo of course a number one but then murphy in new jersey and whitmer in michigan and Whoever is in connecticut and use that day and newsome in california that they they were aware somehow that's by sending corona virus patients into nursing homes. It would enable them to do these other things to take control. most coordinated. Yes on them. And how would that have happened in other words. That's hard you're out. Joe biden's chief. Corona virus advisor was. Dr ezekiel emanuel. The brother of rama manual. He was joe. Biden's number one guy on making corona virus halsey. He has said publicly. That people over seventy should not receive life saving medication because they had already lived long enough but life after seventy has no real value. Meaning he favors passive euthanasia for elderly people. He said he has no desire to lymph s. Eight seventy doesn't see why anyone else should them yesterday. Well yeah the point is way. Joe biden's chief. Medical adviser is saying the lives of people over seventy have no value that they're like sick sick pets at a kill shelter. Why should we be surprised when the democrats in a coordinated fashion dump corona myers patients in nursing homes. There's our math massive spike in death statistics. Then they use that. Massive spike to invoke emergency powers suspend their state constitutions and create mail-in ballots all worked together as part of an effort to use the coleman crisis as a pretext to render the constitution nolan

"Platform basically telling these women that they were imagining it that they were not by the governor and then he continued to say things just like the clip that you played that i didn't know where the line had been redrawn and you know all of these different things. Bat continued to basically dismiss the fact that women do know when men are mistreating them and then at the end he addressed legislature and tried to say that it would be costly to the state and painful for the state to proceed with impeachment proceedings. Because he doesn't want us to actually hold him accountable. Governor cuomo basically told yorkers in his remarks in exchange for resigning he'd like the assembly tonight impeach him and not investigate his conduct any further. This is gas lighting. All new yorkers impeaching him isn't what is costly. actually not impeaching him is what is costly and assemblywoman in terms of this issue of what happens now with the impeachment proceedings because that there has been some speculation that the governor and some of his remaining few supporters would like to see him possibly have a comeback later and if he was impeached obviously could not he could not come back to run for office again. So i'm wondering what your your sense in terms of whether the assembly will move forward now that he's resigned. What you're saying is exactly right. Impeachment must continue and we must remember that. The governor's abuse of power extends far beyond just the women that he actually harassed and harmed and victimized also extends to the millions that he made on the book deal while abusing his staff and misusing his staff. It extends to the victims of kobe. Nineteen who passed away nursing homes and numbers whose deaths he raced in their numbers. The legislature right. This is a pattern of cereal..

What Andrew Cuomo and Jamie Spears Have in Common...
"You know, governor Cuomo and Britney Spears father, they remind me a lot of each other. Because any father would have voluntarily backed down and resigned by now with all the fewer going on about Britney Spears life. Same thing applies to governor Cuomo in New York. He finally did resign yesterday, but for many, many weeks, we all knew what was coming down the pike. He knew more than any of us knew. Because now there have been things uncovered about letters to this person in writing something to the person who heads up time's up, which, by the way, break up time's up, you haven't done a goddamn thing for women since you have started this hashtag slash organization to help women. You've done nothing. Time's up has done shit. But still, he thought he got all his ducks in a row. We've got this. We got that. He knew it was coming. He knew it was curtains. Even his brother quiz, the big shithead, Chris, or the little shit in. Was reaching out to people writing letters on the governor's behalf because family first, I always put family before work. Okay, that's admirable. I understand that. God knows the guy makes a ton of money, makes under 10 million a year, but plenty of money. He can live a long time and not get paid because the job he has says, well, it's a conflict of interest. Chris, you got to step down. Which I believe is gonna happen. Although CNN, they're so fucked up. Who knows? They may not say a thing to him. They may have to now because there was a severe conflict of interest. From a journalist they standpoint, you can't do what he did. But forget that. When it comes to guys like Jamie spears and Andrew Cuomo, they're one and the same. They are power mad power hungry people who don't think they're wrong. They think they're entitled to everything.

I never intended and going beyond that Again as you said always saying that he never touched anyone. Inappropriately never propositioned. Anybody a number of denials but certainly somewhere in the realm of an apology about possibly going to martin somewhere. Sorry just to jump benefit. That was the same statement where he said that He had apologized you. He was sorry if anything was misinterpreted as unwanted flirtation Which is something that definitely lawyers for. The woman who brought up allegations against him are really pointing to As an example of a potential sexual harassment Unwanted fourteen as an example of sexual harassment in the states Sexual harassment policy documents as well. Essential point. I mean i may as well read a little bit more of the statement even prior to what i read the governor said again. This is in writing. This is put out in february at work. Sometimes think. I'm being playful and make jokes. That i think are funny I do on occasion. Tease people in what i think is a good natured. Way you know. I mean there. He put he put a lot out there. Both in this statement and as you said lewis in direct to camera apology That he seemed not to repeat sense. But you're gonna you're gonna continue on that on that theme right. I think since then he's His rhetoric has slowly shifted to sort of focus on on on denying any wrongdoing on the nine that he did anything wrong That has been one part of his rhetoric which we seen evolve Another aspect of it is that he and his aides have now begun to sort of find ways to discredit the investigation One of his senior aides Richard as party has tweeted on multiple occasions suggesting that letitia james who's a democrat has intentions to run for governor and therefore the investigation is politically motivated..

But that's just definitely not something other states have been doing to the same extent and it took The coma ministration months to release that data and the governor has acknowledged that taking so long had sorta sorta created a void right in that was finally released. Once the attorney general released her report that showed a severe under counting of. You're gonna say something lewis. Yeah i mean. I think it's pretty clear from the reporting for multiple meteorologist Now that the cuomo administration had a pretty good grasp on on the death toll in nursing the full death toll nursing homes last year and had been upfront about it. Had the governor acknowledged the full extent when the press and and the elected officials are asking about it. It's pretty safe to say Would've maybe been a you know a a negative of a day of bad of negative new cycle Of bad press and he could have weathered it and moved on Instead now he has federal prosecutors. Look at it he. He has an assembly impeachment. Investigation looking at it. And it just heightened. Distrust among many people of of his administration and transfer and transparency ready administration as marina was explaining. I was thinking back to when the governor eventually sort of gave this fairly infamous of diatribe about You know the people died in the hospital. They died in a nursing home. Who cares they died and that was came across. Many is kind of callous. The way he said but it also sort of contradicts the way they approached You know some of the early transparency in accounting is if it wasn't you know so significant to them where people died and y you know they. They would have been a little more forthcoming. I think it's very clear that the attention around that state health department order You know got them worried about how. The fatality number among nursing home residents was going to look a lot of it became very consumed with You know what that what that sort of public relations picture would look like marina. You've been reporting on this. This this now goes even further than nursing home Tallies of fatalities. There's still an ongoing question around just the broader cuomo administration approach to being sort of fully transparent and accounting for just the total number of Related deaths in the state correct right. Yeah the state still putting out press releases everyday that says the total death count is around forty three thousand people but the cdc figures show. It's actually around fifty four thousand. And that's based on death certificate. Data that the state sends to the cdc When i spoke to Experts at the cdc.

"We await the attorney general. Report marina. Let's come back to how. The governor has responded to the sexual misconduct allegations But on the on the nursing home issue basically all along. That's been one where his his answers haven't really changed right. I mean what we've heard from the governor around whether was the nursing home policy originally and the state health department order. That wound up being rescinded. You know that that nursing homes virtually had to take a covert positive patients if they could if they could care for them all the way through the questions around reporting and the under counting of fatalities of nursing home residents because the governor's administration was counting those who passed in other facilities hospitals. The sort of response from the governor all along has been fairly consistent on that front am i. Am i right or wrong. The governor's definitely been very consistent. When it comes to defending his administration's response to kobe. In nursing homes he has very Controversial now rescinded march. Twenty fifth directive from march twentieth twenty twenty which basically said that nursing homes couldn't Refused to admit patients just because they had. Kobe is pretty much always defended. That as a measure that was at a time when there was a fear of catastrophic surge in hospitalizations stat could leave theoretically elderly people stranded yards or it could just leave a kobe patients. Yes sort of languishing And you know at this point The research that outside experts of done suggests that it's It doesn't look like that march. Twenty fifth policy was the main driver in a the huge tragedy of over fifteen thousand lives lost in nursing homes long term care facilities but it still could have had some impact in his administration has not wanted to do any sort of investigation in a release. Any data about whether that policy had some impact in some nursing homes. So that's definitely remains a point of contention among his critics in republicans Yet at this point. I've seen on on that front. I mean i've seen. I've seen people say who were even critics of the governor if they had just sort of acknowledged you know. This is very very difficult times during the first massive wave of covert and and there might have been mistakes that were made with that order. But we want to be fully transparent about what happened. We wanted to have a very full and accounting record of things. We wanna let people look at things you want to provide the right data and the right. You know counting that a lot a lot more would sort of you know be understood that that that would feel like the governor. His team were really being sort of honest. An open and transparent and trying to you know let themselves be held accountable with the understanding that these were very very difficult decisions at the real height of the of the crisis. But we've seen a lot of them Either trying to sort of hide numbers or argue with the referees so to speak whether it's you know the attorney general or elsewhere right right right. It's a lot of folks with who are observers and an expert on sort of say you know just what you said is that nobody really would be sort of blaming anyone for just the fact that we had this unprecedented pandemic that had that really praise on the vulnerable but there just seems to have been this effort from early in march and april. When i remember asking at press conferences. About how many nursing home residents had died early on. There was Evidence that the department of health was trying to use a pretty strict definition of Of what counts as a cova death in order to.
"governor cuomo" Discussed on Max & Murphy on Politics
"In it does seem at this point that it all sort of around the central question of whether the governor's at all is abused his power in office to bolster his image whether spy minimizing in refusing to report. How many people died of kobe. Nineteen who were living in nursing homes for months until the report came out Or whether he Improperly used state resources or state stat his staff to help him right and promote his copa in nineteen memoir lewis. When we look at this larger picture. How do you frame for people of the position. That the governor's in right now and You know this sort of political and governmental moment that we find ourselves in How hadn't capture shirt of the moment were at. And and the sort of swirl around him and how he's facing it down and then we'll get into some of the specifics about how he's been sort of responding and changing some of his tactics on this. Yeah i think as you fleet Outta marina lead out. It's pretty clear. This is a lot. This i think is the largest number of scandals crises investigations. The governor has faced any given point during his tenure tenure He's facing culture his resignation. The white house has even weighed in president. Biden said that he was waiting to see how these investigations played out before Before giving his opinion on the matter and this is all happening a year after andrew. Cuomo gardiner national popularity for being on tv everyday giving his cova breachings which really elevated his profile in new york and across the nation. And so it's a the situation he's in now is You know it's it's very different one from from sort of the limelight. He was enjoying a few months back. i do think that he in a different position today than he was in early march when the allegations were first coming up and democrats including senator chuck schumer. Were calling him to resign. He's used these sort of intervening months while the investigations are playing out to recalibrate his political strategy to Improve his his public image right. He's continued to hold news conferences And and folk and his focused on the states Vaccine rollout the state's economic reopening more recently on on public safety all issues. He knows our import into voters. That can get him Good headlines may be any strana portray this image of business as usual that he's still in control even though so many other states top officials have called on him to resign of said that he's lost the capacity to lead is trying to to to to Create an image image to to sort of counter that and to a certain extent. He's he's been effective there. There haven't been any new allegations in in the last few months and and he's used these months to shore up support. Among elected officials specially black elected officials He knows he needs to support from Black community especially in new york city of wants to run for a fourth term. And he's sort of stabilized some of his polling numbers and so that's sort of everything that he's been working.

"Instances with the governor dating back to as far as twenty years ago so they really cast a a white a wide net while also keeping a spotlight. On the governor's office itself and sort of house. How the environment there may or may not be conducive to to sexual harassment. So let's let's get in in in a moment. Let's get into how the governor has Defended himself and denied allegations At times as it was already alluded to sort of change. some how. he's talked about Some of the allegations and the investigations. But before that so so we're talking about The attorney general's office overseeing this examination of the governor's office the administration. The governor himself. His behavior vis-a-vis Allegations of sexual harassment and other types of misconduct including inappropriate touching groping To look more. Broadly at whether There was retaliation the culture etc. There's also Entities looking at the question of how information around nursing home deaths was handled Also things related to several other topics. There's the governor's book deal and the cova book that he wrote And whether state employees and employees Of the of the executive branch working on that book And how that book might have related to reporting on nursing home fatalities nursing policy. There's questions around whether a former top aide to the governor. Who was volunteering back on governor. Time larry schwartz on government. Time was Exercising any pressure around. Kobe vaccine distribution to sort of imply pressure around political support for the governor. There's questions around. Whether early on in cova did there was some testing preference.

Around the mario cuomo bridge. Did i get everything. Is that list. I mean it's it's when you pull it all together marine. it's it's a big list and there's different entities potentially looking at different things here i. It's just a very very wide ranging investigation by the assembly's judiciary committee at this point. It's hard to tell when anyone could actually get through all those documents at this point it's Thousands of documents there They announce that they're going to be issuing subpoenas to compel documents in get sworn statements. It seems at this point. That the Manhattan firm davis Wardwell they are really The ones who are kind of pouring over all of these records right now but there are still some pretty big questions that we don't know about the assembly impeachment probe because it's a pretty unprecedented and also be. There's just not a lot of rules or guidelines for how this is going to play out so when it comes to what are what's ground for grounds for impeachments That hasn't even been decided yet. The there's no plans for public hearings. it's a pretty closed door process at this moment even lawmakers on the committee. They are Not really steeped into all the details of all these records that This law firm is going through.

"You've you've been covering even more closely the scandal around nursing home deaths and reporting of those deaths but anything went to add to what was just said or do you want to give an overview of what we know on the nursing home situation right so yeah the federal prosecutors. We know in Manhattan are looking have been looking into how the code ministration has handled reporting on the number of deaths of nursing home residents because of cove it. there was a some acknowledgment from the department of justice. Last week that they aren't opening an investigation into how state run or government run. Nursing homes in new york have handled kobe by. That doesn't rule out any On investigations into how the governor and his administration has handled covert outbreaks at nursing. Homes or How privately run nursing. Homes have handled a kobe outbreaks as well. So it's definitely a big Issue that remains pending and the assembly. Judiciary committee's also looking into that as well but It seems like they are the assembly sort of at this point. Kind of waiting to see what the attorney general comes out in regards the sexual harassment and potentially If federal prosecutors ended up coming out with anything in regards to a nursing homes and it seems like in both of these instances and even other issues that are being looked up various entities. There is the initial set of allegations of of certain behavior certain decisions certain actions and then there has become the sort of secondary level of how those were handled or how information was provided or not provided in the issue of the sexual harassment and misconduct allegations. There's questions around whether you know. The governor's office Handle initial allegations the right way whether they followed state law for example so there is a question of whether he broke state law or workplace Laws and rules and then there's questions ran. How allegations of him breaking those was handled right. Lewis this is mrs business sort of. There's a secondary level to to a number of these where in the nursing homes. It's also about not just decisions that were made around sort of policy in healthcare but then sort of questions around whether there was a hiding of of numbers or under counting deaths in whether the administration was holding back information right absolutely. I think one thing to stress is that the investigation being led out of the attorney. General's office into the sexual harassment..

"I'm rebecca uvira in for tenzin this week and this is the takeaway last week. The cherokee nation supreme court ruled unanimously to remove the phrase by blood from the tribes constitution and laws. The decision is particularly meaningful to descendants of black people who were once enslaved by the tribe known as cherokee freedman according to the court and eighteen sixty six treaty signed by the cherokee nation affirmed the tribal citizens rights of friedman but their place within the including their ability to run for tribal government positions has been questioned and challenged by other cherokee nation members over time joining us now is alison evader indigenous affairs reporter for k. o. s. u. ellison. Thanks for coming on the takeaway. Thanks for having me back. This recent ruling is connected to a federal court decision from twenty seventeen. Can you tell us what was at issue in that case. And how did the court rule well the seventeen wing stemmed from the in two thousand and seven cherokee nation voters approved an amendment to the constitution to limit citizenship to cherokees who were who could prove they were quote by blood and so a lawsuit was filed and in two thousand and seventeen federal district court judge in in. Dc ruled that ruled in favor of the friedman. The case was known as cherokee nation versus nash. And they said that. Friedman should enjoy full citizenship up the tribal nation according to an eighteen. Sixty six treaty that they signed so you know in in eighteen sixty six. The cherokee nation signed a treaty to publish a ship again with the federal government after the civil war. A lot of people don't know that turkey nation fought on the side of the confederacy during the civil war and so this was to establish relationship a relationship with them and so part of the negotiation said that the tribal nation needed to give friedman citizenship. And so over. Time that has been challenged in in the turkey nation versus nash case maryland van was a plaintiff in that In that case she had filed for citizenship and wanted to get her citizenship in two thousand and one and was told no you don't qualify and so g filed a suit against the cherokee nation and one her and got her citizenship in two thousand six and then that brings us to two thousand and seven one that amendment was made to the constitution. So i think it's really important to note that citizenship laws in the cherokee nation are not based on race or blood quantum some tribes have that. But not the cherokee nation on many feel like that requiring blood. Quantum is a colonialist antiquated way. Of saying who is. And who isn't you know. Citizenship is based on community. Who can who can claim you. What community are you part of an i. I tell people to think of it like if you were a citizen of france. You know it's it's like that you know your your culture communities people that you know people that can claim you and so that's a big difference and i think that's when the supreme court or cherokee nation struck that by blood language from the constitution. I think they were affirming them at. You've spoken to some descendants of cherokee freedman since the court ruling was announced. How are they reacting to the news. I spoke with maryland van. Those striking this language was in like you mentioned in your in your intro. She is running for a seat on the council and somebody had challenged her candidacy. And so i spoke with her after this ruling and she was really surprised. Who's really happy. And she feels first and foremost she is cherokee. That's her heritage. When she told. I remember when i first interviewed her five years ago. She said you know. I knew who my family was. I knew who we were. And i felt like i am a cherokee just like anybody else. And so she's looking forward to you. Know running for her seat in the travel on the tribal council and the election is june. Sixth than she said. you know. i'm looking forward to earning the trust of cherokees and representing them so other than being able to say run for a seat. What will some of the most immediate impacts on the cherokee nation supreme court ruling be within the tribe. I'm not sure if there are any other immediate impact. I think this was the one that was really gonna be most impacted. I mean there are. Friedman citizens enrolled in the tribe right now and they enjoy just the enjoy the same benefits that other checking nation citizens. Have you know they're able to vote. They're able to receive healthcare. They're able to receive their vaccine able to enjoy the benefits. I said i think this striking the by blood language. Some feel that this was just the last way to to really affirm that there's one type of turkey citizen full stop. There is no you know you're cherokee by blood your check. You know you're a descendant this is the there's one type of turkey citizen full stop That's what that this decision affirms. And what have the leaders of the cherokee nation said about the court's ruling. They're really happy. I mean Attorney general's sarah hell really welcomed. Monday's opinion and she remarked on the language that justice shauna baker wrote. You know she's she said. When we signed this treaty the federal government said that they were going to uphold their end of the trust responsibility and so by us taking out this language that means that we are upholding our end of the trust responsibility by allowing friedman to become citizens. And you know it particularly in that ruling. There was this language that reference the mcgirt decision from last summer. If you'll recall the supreme court ruled that the muskogee creek nation was never disestablished that that also had applied to other tribes. And so you know in the ruling. That justices sean baker out she. She said one hundred fifty five years after the eighteen sixty six treaty native cherokees must fully step into the promise they made on the far end of trail of tears and that's a direct quote from justice. Gorsuch is writing from last summer and the supreme court decision And she also said by doing so the cherokee nation as a whole lifts itself into the twenty first century and sheds the heavyweight of antebellum and pervasiveness of racism and racial injustice. For all so those were words that were written in the decision on monday and a lot of people commented on on how thoughtful that was so into thousand seven around seventy five percent of cherokee nation members approved an amendment that added the by blood language to their constitution. Why was there so much support for that.

"He work with them. Yeah i mean. He initially received a lot of support from local politicians. You know they. The state legislature granted him these additional emergency powers at the beginning of the pandemic because everybody realized that the situation was so dire and he needed to take sweeping executive actions in order to handle it like Phil described like that patients has kind of war as the pandemic has gone. Legislators you know started asking in last summer for like basic data like how many people had died in nursing homes and basically were stonewalled. And that's created tension. And you know really snowballed like i said in the last few weeks We're seeing all different kinds of things in consideration from removing those emergency powers to some really progressive politicians and people on the right actually are now calling for impeachment or his resignation. So we've seen that. That relationship really has strained. And what about governor newsom. How has his relationship. With elected officials change from beginning to now it was was pretty rosy at the beginning and especially with local health officials and local county officials that kennedy began to deteriorate as time went on the new administration was accused of having kind of a message about what they wanted. not consulting with local health officials or a local politicians when they implemented new policies. Such is kind of like a tiered system went some restrictions can be lifted. There were plans about the vaccine. Roll out that Some people some of the local officials said they weren't consulted with on the legislative side. The biggest criticism has been some of the contract that have gone out basically. We've been spending billions of dollars for p. p. e. and Other measures on the criticism is that he's done no bid contracts there's been questions raised about If some of these companies have prior relationships with them more had supported him politically But that has not been a a serious back in new york. I don't think it's been kind of a little bubbling below the surface a little more from the legislative point of view with local governments. It it's been a big problem. Can you tell us about the now infamous french laundry restaurant incident and why people were so angry. Yeah this is how this happened. In november and newsom was caught basically by patron. There snapped a picture of him dining with friends at the french laundry. Which is a very posh restaurant in the napa valley. And this was at the same time he was urging californians not to gather with in big groups not to congregate with people outside their home and so It was kinda tinderbox. People got really upset. Because i mean you know. We'd been in lockdown since march. Here here was to governor not wearing a mask with his friends. Hobnobbing in this swanky Restaurant and even. Though i mean i guess under the rules in napa at the time you could dine outside restaurants but it was just seen as a total hypocritical. Move on his part and he's still really hasn't recovered from that and that that added fuel to this budding. Recall effort out here Which looks like it's going to qualify for the ballot yet. Can you explain what this recall. Effort means yeah so This began last june and to recall the statewide politician in california. You need to get Just under one point five million signatures and the proponents say they have over that already. We don't know if those are ballots signatures. They have to be from california voters so it has to go through kind of check process but what. It looks like it's going to happen. Is this It looks like it will qualify and come october november There will be a recall election a special election with two questions. One should gavin newsom be recalled and if he is recalled. Who would you like to replace him. And there'd be a slate of candidates the people could choose from now feel pretty much. Every california governor in recent history has faced an attempted recall. So i mean is this just par for the course in california or you think based on your reporting that actually have teeth. You're right. I mean i think every year for the past fifty years faced recalled gavin newsom himself as v. Six different is a sixth attempt to recall. I mean the people were trying to recall him like the minute he got into office. This is unique because we've always been one california governor who's been recalled in the history of the state that was davis back in two thousand and three and that's when we were having rolling blackouts. That's when after the dot com bust of we're slashing your state budget. He had raised the car tax. So kind of like a whole host of things led to his demise. And that's when Famously arnold schwarzenegger gin and was elected to terms as california's governor governor cuomo is clearly facing political. Backlash as we've been saying but have these. Recent controversies changed how the public generally views him. It still feels very early to kind of weigh in on that you know there were was a polling. That came out. Recently that showed a slight dip in popularity since controversy bubbled up about this nursing home situation but still that's way higher than his approval was pre pandemic times so it still feels very soon to try to see. You know exactly how this is going to sway the larger public opinion on somebody. Who's had you know who's been governor for so long and has a deep political history in new york state and going back to his relationship with elected officials there have been some recent. Tiff says you've mentioned with other politicians in the state. Can you tell us what has happened between governor and elected officials and what the response has been sure. I mean the height of this has sort of expanded out of a situation with one state assembly member named ron. Kim who represents district in queens. Now he has been critical of how the governor is handled the situation specifically nursing homes for the entire pandemic the entire course of the pandemic he now chairs the aging committee this assemblyman but his own uncle died in flushing In a flushing nursing home from covid a last spring and you know assembly member. Kim spoke to reporters new york post reporter about a private conversation. That cuomo's top. Aides had with democratic lawmakers and after that story ran that described his private conversation. Kim came out came out and said that he had received threatening phone call from governor cuomo where he felt physically. He was physically endanger. His wife was scared he said and then the governor during public press conference spent twenty one minutes of it berating. This assembly member. That i think kind of you know i think cuomo calculation was that people would side with him but really caused you know this bubbling up of all kinds of stories about times that reporters and you know political activists and many many people receiving calls from either promo directly or from his staff members. You know that were bullying and you know new york city mayor. Bill de blasio came out in favor of ron cam and said you know many people in new york have gotten these phone calls and it was sort of this open secret. That many people in politics were aware of but hadn't really been reported on the record. There was some reporting around threatening phone calls During the last election cycle for political opponents but it seems like sort of that fear that had existed of publicly. Speaking against the governor kind of dissipated with ron kim coming forward and in the wake of that we've been seen these two women step forward and described sexual harassment in his office and gwen with governor. Newsom we're we're seeing this push to recall him. Are we seeing any of that here. In new york. That also feels very early. There are members. I mean the republican party. Yes sir is calling for his steps towards his impeachment or his resignation and there is a faction of the left more progressive younger lawmakers. Who are have been more willing to criticize the governor. Also calling for that whether or not it. Sort of passes into the s. More moderate centrist democrats that are the majority control of both houses in the new york legislature. That is still you know still remains to be seen. We've been talking to fill well on. He's a staff writer for the l. A. times covering gavin newsom and california politics and gwen hogan a reporter for wnyc and gothamist gwen ville thank.

And I think our reporting and other publications reporting found that that sort of heavy handed approach threatening finds they have had something to do with the with the slow rollout as well that healthcare providers were scared of getting in trouble or scared of gang. Signed and slow down their inoculations to the point where you saw the sort of frustration you're talking about. Well, we know that Governor Cuomo is not one to back down from a confrontation. In fact, he directly responded to your report in The New York Times by saying, quote if times reporters think I pushed hospitals too hard and local governments too hard, I say I'm a fighter for the people of New York, and I believe I'm saving lives. That's a powerful statement. Jesse your What do you make of that response from Governor Cuomo? Well, you know, I've covered the governor now for 789 years have lost track. But you know he is nothing if not confident in his own abilities and is in his world view, so he definitely thinks that he's doing the right thing.

You know, and his comments about health care, you know, people inside of his own healthy state health apparatus have not been necessarily front flattering. You know, a couple of weeks ago, Even before our story published he was basically saying that they were academics who didn't know how to get things done. On Damning report. To me, the state attorney general, a fellow Democrats is James. They said that his his health department was under counting the number of people who died in nursing homes. And so there are critics beginning to speak up in questioning whether or not Is kind of self confidence is actually earned, or is just bluster. Well, we can only hope that the vaccination rollout just gets better for all New Yorkers and folks across the country. Jesse McKinley is the Albany bureau chief for The New York Times, Jessie Thank you so much. Absolutely..
