"governor jerry brown" Discussed on KQED Radio
"On the breakdown, he clerked for a Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Now Goodwin. Liu sits on the California Supreme Court. That's right. He was named to the court by Governor Jerry Brown after Republicans blocked Liu's nomination to the federal bench. I'll be talking with him about what he learned working with Justice Ginsburg and his thoughts on the battle to replace her and boy Mariza a week ago. Of course, none of this had happened. Justice died on Friday. The Eva Russia, Shana stunned everybody and is really upended the 2020 political election and in a lot of ways And it's going to be a big moment as this confirmation gets under way for our both of our senator, Senator Feinstein chairs Judiciary Council. Harris, Of course, whose hustle running for vice president, What are your thoughts? I know you've begun doing some reporting about Senator Feinstein. There's some concerns about her. What your thoughts. Yeah. I mean, I think that this is really, you know, a study, in contrast for as much as a sort of, you know grief that sometimes commonly gets on the left about not being progressive enough. You know, she is very much a different mould and Dianne Feinstein, who I think hearkens back quite frankly, to another era in a lot of ways, And and so we're seeing some concern. Politico had a story. I mean, I want to be clear. A lot of people who have concerns are not willing to say them on the record, right. But there is questions a powerful senator. Yeah, And there's questions about whether she's up to the job. I mean, we did see during the cabin I hearings. I think some people will disappointed by kind of the tenor of her questions. Obviously, Kamala Harris has made a name for herself with her prosecutorial kind of Ah, questioning of witnesses, whether they be confirmation hearings or otherwise. So I do think that Dianne Feinstein Is there is some concern within the Democratic caucus. I mean, the truth is nothing she can do is likely going to hold up this nomination if the Republicans want to get it through, But I do think if Biden and Harris win and they retake the Senate, there will be questions. There are already questions about whether you know she's the right person to be. Chairing that committee because she's the ranking member on judiciary, part of her reelection argument, right? You have the authority of seniority. Exactly, But you know, In some ways, it reflects this larger cleavage within the Democratic Party where you have You know Bernie Sanders and AOC and others really pushing for fundamental changes. Dianne Feinstein, Joe Biden on To certain extent, Kamala Harris, really Maura Maura about evolution and revolution. On, so I think some of that is going to play out. There are people that want, for example, Senator Feinstein to come out for expanding the court. And, you know, a lot of people say this isn't the time for that. We need to get through to the election. And then if Democrats take over, there'll be plenty of time to talk about that. Kamala Harris boys, she She is really in a spot. Of course, she will be likely called away from the campaign. She's got a debate with Mike Pence, the vice president on October 7th. She's got a lot on her plate, and, you know, it will be interesting to see how she navigates these hearings because I'm not sure she's going to take the same kind of combative. Roll that she played, say in the Kavanagh hearings because that's a high stakes gamble for her to do that. It is. I mean, I wouldn't expect her to be too different from the Kahlan Harris. We know, but I think you're right. She made temper some of those criticisms. That might be a little bit different. I mean, she is in a different stage running for vice president than she would be as adjust the junior senator from a safely blue state, but I don't expect her. To pull all her punches for sure. And I mean again, like you said, This is going to depend on who the nominee is. I think Democrats at this point I'm really trying to focus on the process and saying in regardless of who it is we want. You know this is really hypocritical, given what happened in 2016 with Merrick Garland. But on a lot of questions about whether the filibuster is ah, breathing its last press, we'll get into that with our guest. I think after the break I think whatever happens, they will be to toe watch in that committee round. Yeah, we do have on election coming up, and it's going to be sort of in some ways in an election season. More than election Day of ballots will be going out to all registered voters in California. And there was a Berkeley I G s poll out this week that we talked about on the air on the radio and online this week and Lisa. They looked at four ballot measures in particular prop 20 to the uber lift measure. Prop 15 on property taxes. Prop 16 affirmative action and 21 on ring control, and what struck me was the high percentage of voters are still undecided on these issues, and I think in part, that's because some of these are somewhat complicated and you know people haven't maybe study them yet, but there's so much competition. For voters time with the pandemic, the wildfires, and now the Supreme Court is going to be tough. I think for these campaigns to break through, Yeah, I think you're right. I mean, I think that this is often an issue when we have this money ballot measures, and they are complicated questions. Often the voters are being asked to kind of become experts on very quickly. I think the sort of broader political tenor is definitely making it more challenging to break through. And the fact that again like the's air, not simple things right about profit teen property taxes. Will it affect small businesses and farms, won't it? You know a lot of these Questions are really interesting, I will say on prop 16 affirmative action. I think it'll be fascinating to see how the results of an audit this week that really found favoritism in some of the decisions in terms of who got into a handful of the UCS. Whether that is something that the campaign can really used to show voters who are so largely and decided that this is an issue that matters. You know that? Maybe there is affirmative action. For some people with you're wealthy enough and have the connections was all kinds of affirmative action. All right, We're going to take a short break, and when we come back, we're going to be joined by California Supreme Court Justice Goodwin Liu, you're listening to political breakdown from public radio..
What it Was Like to Interview Earlonne Woods and Nigel Poor of Ear Hustle
"If you haven't heard my interview with Nigel poor and and Earl Woods from ear. Hustle I highly recommend you. Go back and listen to that episode, which should be right behind this one in your pod catcher after you've listened to that. Come back to this episodes that you can listen to the behind the scenes bonus show so with that I will introduce my special guest and he is Paul Condo welcome to the show Paul. Thank you for having me sky. Thank you for being a guest on your show. You're welcome. So. Hall writes the Podcast Gumbo Newsletter, but polly left for you to just introduce yourself quickly and tell them a little bit about about you before we get started. I have the podcast Gumbo newsletter, which recommends three podcast episodes. A week comes out every Wednesday I've been doing it. Just over about two years now, and then just at the beginning of this year I have a podcast of the same name, and that also is where I give three podcast episode recommendations and A little different than a newsletter at it focuses on national days of the year keeping it pretty consistent, though so that yes, always God. All right, so I guess we'll just get started talking about last week's show and how it came together. Take it away, Pau. All right my hope today is really that your listeners get a little inside baseball about inside podcasting and this particular episode keeping with the sports theme I'm going to give you a softball. Start us all off How do you pick your guests and and why Nigel and airline? That's a great question. It's a couple of different things usually for most episodes. It's a show that I am personally super passionate about if I'm not passionate about the show. That's GONNA. Come through in my interview and the interview just isn't going to be as good, but there have been a couple exceptions where I think that the person behind the show is someone that I'm either fascinated with personally. I would put Jason Cal so I interviewed in season one into that category I do listen to his show, but I really wanted in that interview to get under the hood of who is he because he has well I think a lot of people would say he's sort of a piece of work. And then also you know there might be someone who I think has a long history podcasting. Who I think my listeners can learn from So there's someone this season falls into that category, but for the most part it shows that I'm listening to you. I'm a fan of or that I'm just fascinated like. How did someone make something like this And so if there isn't some combination of those things going on, I think the interview is going to be terrible and I've been a fan of ear hustle since the beginning, they were on my hit list as I was planning season one. So i. mean that's a good question. I mean good point. Is You know how easy or hard is it to get interviews with people like Nigel? And early on you know what is the process you have to go through an agent or representative, or can you go straight to them? That is also a good question. In that case, I was in touch with. I don't know if I'm saying his name. Right David Qatrana I mentioned him at the end of the episode last week I was in touch with him, because he was my contact at Pr X., and he was sort of just keeping me abreast of the news coming out of the Organization for my newsletter, and he would let me know about your stuff, so I got him, and mentioned it before season one, and he was receptive, but they were really busy and I. I hope I have this chronology right, but I think it may have been I think when I first went to him. We didn't know that early on. You know. The public did not know that governor. Governor Jerry. Brown was commuting his sentence. I think that that was going on in the background. I hope I have that right because I remember after I asked him, and he said I'll really try, but they're super busy right now, so it was kind of like a maybe kind of an answer yet, and I remember that we went back and forth a few times, and it just seemed like we were sort of kicking the can down the road, and it wasn't happening and I had to figure out like who am I gonNA, talk to this season and so I finally said you know I think I have to make a decision here like let's try for next season and. I remember then listening to them on fresh air. Terry gross had them on fresh air, and she was the focus of the interview was the commutation of sentence, and how that was you know how that happened? And all of that, but they hadn't come out with season four, which was the first season where he is finally on the outside right from the outside. They had the end of season three. Though where you find out, it's happening and. You get to hear him on the phone with his mom, telling his mom might. I'm coming home and all that, so it was right in that period and I remember thinking interesting. You know that this has happened since. I started talking to David About having them on the show in retrospect. I'm really grateful that it didn't work out that first season because. Everyone wanted to interview them right around that time I mean Terry. Gross was one of many people who talk to them. Because that was like not that was big news that was at least state level, and you know I. Think there might have even been articles in. You know more national papers with national audiences about what had happened, and so I got to have a brand new type of conversation. Now you've been out. You've recorded an entire season like they were about to launch these and five when we had that conversation, so it was sort of like. What has it been like and it was a? A new angle

P. P. or independent voters in California to cross over into I think it's important for him to get the message out to independent voters that they can trade in their ballots and vote in the democratic primary and in California has transitioned to early voting do we know how many people are still waiting to turn in their ballots I know I'm one of them me too and it look as of Friday only eighteen percent of mail ballots had been returned that's way below what experts have projected at the beginning of this election I think for no surprise the field is still pretty crowded there's lots of candidates still in their voters want to hold on to their ballots into the last opportunity before they go and that's actually spilling into the endorsement primary we've seen top California Democrats governor Gavin Newsom center comelec Harris former governor Jerry Brown all hold off on endorsing A.

How The Food Industry Manipulates Public Opinion, Science, And Government
"Today. I want to talk about how the food industry many plays public opinion manipulate science. Manipulates the government. So here we go. Let's take on Science I. I mean who isn't confused about what to eat. And that's why I wrote my book action. But what's really going on is a concerted effort by the food industry that manipulates science. The government our government spends about one billion a year on nutrition research. The food industry spends twelve billion. And they find all kinds of concocted studies. That actually manipulate the truth. For example. I think Coca Cola. Spent one hundred twenty million dollars to universities and other groups to actually provide money money for research and guess what they funded three hundred eighty nine articles and one hundred sixty nine journals. Things like exercise. Is the key to weight. Loss at soda doesn't have any role in our way. The Snack Food Manufacturers Association groups that confections group funded studies that show the kids. We Candy Actually Lose More Weight and have less inflammation the kids who don't eat candy. I mean how does that even make sense? And when you look at the data I'm you know studies funded by the food. Industry Are Eight to fifty times more likely to show benefit? I studied for example on artificial sweeteners. Show that by the food industry that ninety nine percent they're safe and effective but about ninety plus percent of the studies but their independence show that they cause weight gain obesity. Damage the microbiome and definitely are not a healthy food and not good for dieting. So we have so much going on all the time in research I there was a there was a big review. For example by a group of scientists have looked at sugar recommendations it was published in the animal internal medicine which is one of the most important journals in medicine and yet it it shed very computing. Seems like there's no evidence for assure guidelines to reduce sugar that actually sugar is an harmful that our concerns are overstated in the data to support any limits on sugar in our diet. Well the study was funded by a group called the International Science Institute which sounds awesome but turns out is funded by none other than Coca Cola and Monsanto and Pepsi and all the big characters in the food industry so we're completely bamboozled by misinformation major journals and it confuses doctors nurses nutritionists computers the public and even in confuses policymakers. How do you make sense of all this? So you really have to follow the money so nutrition. Science corruption is huge. And it doesn't just stop there. He go onto fun all sorts of professional associations for example the American Diabetes Association the American Heart Association the Academy of Nutrition Dietetic which which receives forty percent of its funding from the food industry. They create a partnership with kraft singles. Calling it the smart slice of cheese you know which is crazy because it's not even cheese. Something has to be fifty one percent cheese to call it cheese so I'd say cheese like product or I don't even know what to call it. The government doesn't like to call cheese and that's called a heart healthy. Smart Snack is because they were funded by the food industry They are also corrupting their meetings. Their meetings and they provide all sorts of CO education so they have panels with makers of high fructose Corn Syrup and transfats an all kinds of crazy stuff and it just computers nutritionist. Because it seems like it's good science. They're very very good and they spend millions millions and billions on this so they corrupt all these organizations and and so Dr John Nine Ninety s as a professor at Stanford said. We shouldn't believe any recommendations coming out of professional societies that have conflicts of interest. I mean how does the American Heart Association can have fruit loops and twix cereals? Be Hard healthy when they're so full of sugar because they're low fat they get three hundred thousand dollars for putting that seal of approval so we have to be very cautious consumers. See Not just stop. With professional associations they also create front groups. Front groups are group's that actually seem like they're legitimate groups but actually are funded by the food industry or the Agan History of the oil industry. So you've got things like climate smart. Agriculture sounds wonderful. And I who's against that right but it's funded by the fertilizer companies who want to use more fertilizer and as we've talked about before fertilizer drives huge amounts of damage to the ecosystem uses tons of energy to produce damage our waterways at his huge contributor to climate change so Not so smart. In my opinion I see you've got then you've got the ways in which these companies also create corporate social responsibility and it's another mechanism. They used they. They fund groups that are social groups. It's called corporate social responsibility. And what did they find? They find the N. W. C. P. And they find the Hispanic preparation make money. And what does that do that makes them sort of loyal to them and a little bit and the it co ops them for example and there's a soda tax on the ballot. They actually will oppose a soda tax. Because they're funded by coca-cola or or the food industry or so makers is pretty pretty frightening. they also fun things like the hunger groups which which why they're so against limiting soda for snap or food stamps are we spent seven billion soda for the poor every year about thirty billion servings through our food stamp program how that make any sense. When we're trying to create a healthy population says all these insidious ways they caught these groups. I remember when I was showing fed up in Atlanta. I met with Bernice King. Martin Luther King's daughter and she wanted to the movie and the King Center instead of being nonviolent is also nonviolent yourself through how you take care of your health and she was all excited about it and I got a call later. We couldn't show the film there and I was like why and that was moving about obesity in the food industry said well because Coca Cola Funds King Center. It's pretty frightening And how they co op these groups And we also do all kinds of other nefarious things They besides the front groups besides sole told responsibility besides getting into our public health academies besides corrupting science. They're involved in terrible political efforts that are behind the scenes that manipulate public opinion for example. Now there's a couple of things that happened. One was an effort by the Grocery Manufacturers America which essentially was a representative now-disbanded thankfully that was representing the big food companies and they illegally got them to contribute to a slush fund to fight. Gmo labeling. Which would have cost those companies billions of dollars and fight it in Washington state and they pretended to sort of hide behind this this group. That wasn't actually disclosing the funding Attorney General Washington state figure this out and sued the grocery manufacturers of America for campaign finance violations and led to the biggest settlement. I think it was like fourteen or eighteen million dollars against them Yet the ballot passed to fight. Gmo labeling and they won they spent so much money but they got slapped a few million bucks. I mean they make millions of dollars. They don't really care. But after that a number of these companies actually you're standing up and doing good things and I think I see I see progress. I see change and that makes me happy for example Nestle's known Unilever and Mars Got Out of Jimmy at that point the grocery manufacturer America and they formed a sustainable food policy alliance which was a great idea. And I think it's exciting and we'll see what happens with that. Nomination hopefully work with him on my food fix campaign so so that was terrible and then of course even worse things eighty for example they create a ballot initiative in California which was to prohibit local governments from raisings local taxes unless there was a two thirds majority which would have crippled the governments in the local towns so they couldn't schools are departments police stations etc and They didn't care about that but they cared about was manipulating. The Governor Governor Jerry Brown is probably liberal governor. We had in America to put a preemptive policy that prevented any future taxes on soda. Junk food. Now think about that. I mean they literally strong armed the government by threatening them with a measure that would they spent seven million dollars promoting that would have crippled local governments and basically bribed to force the governor to create this preemptive law which is terrible so all of a sudden affairs ways that the food industries acting and we need to fight

Yeah they used to move at minutes. They just can't move any closer. The problem is they've got no more minutes to move it. That's the problem they have to move. Its second month. Well that's just stupid. Of course it's you even tell that it's the whole concept stupid. Oh my God. Why are we going to talk about stick around guys? You'll find out. We got things to say all right. Well Dan I'm sure you're going to be very very excited to hear I already am That the LDS Church church the church. Jesus Christ of Latter Day saints as they want to be known right as They have issued a statement about the fact that they are going to be changing their temple. We'll clothing their ceremonial clothing. Oh Yeah I if if you're a mormon it's important for the rest of us it's it's just it's one of those big. What the fuck well here okay? So here's what people need to know talking about the magic underwear. No which is which which is what they call the temple garment so one could be forgiven for being confused. And that's the stuff that Mormons walk around and every day. It's under their clothes. Yeah if they've been through the temple they're wearing these tremendously stupid underwear. It's also not the clothing building that you change into when you first go into the temple when you walk into the temple and you show your your card and your yes right you gotTa have your membership card. Yeah it's gotta be up to date and you go in go into a locker room and you have costco basically and you have. You can either their rent your sermon clothing right or actually can rent all of it. You can rent you can also rent your your temple clothing And but you get that you go you. May maybe you you brought your own in so you have a little suitcase backpack. That's got got it all in there. And he in change into all white like white pants and White Little Little Booty Shoe thing gentlemen have a suit usually. It's a it's a well. No no no if you're well to do or like high up in the Church leadership then you'd have a white soon otherwise I'll it has to be as white pants in a white shirt. You don't have to have like a suit coat. I'm not saying you have to thank you. It's a whole Colonel Sanders. Look it's true but it's literally white on white on white it's everything your socks Shoes White nightime bought white. o- could one go with the White House. Scott Scott I don't Know Oh cheerio gentlemen anyway. So there's that and then that's what you just sort of walk around the temple right right. Everybody's in all white ladies in white draft but in the ceremony in the endowment ceremony. Right right there. You have this little pouch of the ceremonial clothes and you put them on at certain points. You're instructed put this on put bad on. There's like a little apron thing to call. I think they call them apron. It's Kinda like a Toga over your clothes right Over your shirt and tie the rope. I'm sorry that's what they call that apron actually is like this little green. The only splash of color right green and have that. There's a hat for the men little veil for the ladies right anyway. It's all very fiddly right right. There's there's like there's a point the ceremony where there's a string that's hanging off of your and it looks like a Baker's hat maybe And there's like a little loop on your shoulder and you're supposed to tie that little string onto your shoulder as just such. Oh my God. It's just such it's A. It's all just a mess. It's the weirdest looking thing you can google. It and their image. Yeah and it's it's not very becoming. I will not unless they have decided to change To simplify and make more comfortable. Oh the clothing. How bad it's GONNA be easier to put on care for and apparently to afford making it cheaper for the masses? Okay good you. Don't I have to be a a well-to-do Mormon no anymore to to to not have some shabby old Temple clothing Let's let's see they are so the they're getting rid of the dangling. String from the hat the hat had. How will the hat be tethered to one's body? Not sure how that's GONNA work. Also the men's hat. I mentioned that kind of looks like a Baker's hat or something it looks is like a goofy chef's hat from some yeah strange cartoons like this plastic disk in it. Oh really that sort of gives it its shape shape and four all right That's going away. Oh I'm not sure I think it's more of a beret. Oh a little jonty beret. Hey John and Let's see more durable fabric. I think I mentioned that And says sash will be easier to care for the apron will not change okay right highly symbolic the pro very important. Everything is simple cannot mess with the Apron Brin and this this came out and as always with all these because the LDS church. They've been working rickman the temple ceremony for time. Yeah it's not something. That's that static. The brethren make every so often make little changes and and because it's like behind closed doors and it's all a big secret and memories last only so long the People I think just kind of end up forgetting what it used to be yeah right And one would surprise out. It's not important it's because again. It's all symbolism. Yeah right but Yeah the never ending you know never changing changing and Omni whatever God. Yeah exactly as has yesterday's again David and other administrative change and the clothing this guy this the current president has been shaking things up ever since he took over.

"With regard to those changes California's former governor Jerry Brown signed two bills into law three years ago the create a mandatory prison sentence for the assault of an unconscious or intoxicated person because of your case or the rather specific changes there maybe like one chain to the top of your list that you would also like to see made for dealing with cases of sexual violence yeah I would love for us to find rape crisis centers you know I was assaulted on Stanford campus I was taken a half hour south to San Jose because that was the nearest hospital where I could get a rape kit done you know even having access to these centers in order to collect evidence in the first place is extremely valuable and vital I'm sorry she know you you were raped at Stanford which is a university that has a gigantic medical school and multiple hospitals that it is expanding and they had to drive you down to Santa Clara county to get yet to San Jose to get a rape kit correct how the hell hi Stanford medical yeah was gigantic and they don't have rickets on campus yeah I mean I woke up extremely confused I thought I was at Stanford hospital so you know if you think about something as simple as transportation how do you get to the hospital if you're assaulted on Stamford campus do you call an uber you're not allowed to change out of your clothes you know you're not allowed to shower if you wanna could collect evidence properly so who's gonna take you do you ask your one friend on campus who has a car now these are very simple things that we don't even think about when we ask a victim to report a few more quick questions I'd like to ask you in the time we have left let me get to a question from Amy who emailed my daughter was raped in her first week of college and is struggling to come to grips with the trauma it was in many aspects very similar to your experience it happened over three years ago and we are at a loss as to how to help her she refuses to go to counseling and is floundering in a self medicating loop of marijuana and alcohol any suggestions would be most helpful Chanel yeah I would say just be patient I think I was going through a lot to that I could not process I feel like I was on an expedited time line because I was going through court you know the only reason I finally sought out there be is because I had to testify for the preliminary hearing I showed up three weeks before I was called to testify I found a therapist and said you need to get me ready you know I treated her almost like a personal trainer but I was really forced to process I would say you know the first thing you need to establish for victim is agency she's had her agency stripped away from her so instead of saying you need to do this or this you can lay out options for how to move forward or what to do alternately it is her who has to choose those options because that choice is what she needs finally I wonder if you are hopeful for the future I know that the ME two movements resurgence has really changed the conversation on sexual assault and involved in many women to tell their stories just as you have the nation had a very intense conversation about sexual assault allegations after Christine Bossi for testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee about now Supreme Court justice Brett Kavanaugh how hopeful are you that things are changing with that testimony with more women sharing their stories are we moving in the right direction I do think we're moving in the right direction and I do constantly feel hopeful you know watching all these women come forward before me propelled me to come forward they were the ones who showed me that I do have a space in this world a right to take up space and to be loud and that encouraged me to become visible I hope that my becoming visible will help others out there you know I know that none of us are going anywhere you know we're going to keep fighting I know that in my bones and I am.

"My brain president of the Goldwater institute of ms Olson and her book is called the right to try about drugs that are being held back by the FDA by an approval process that is overly cautious perhaps too cautious let me ask you about something that occurred to me while we're talking about that this I I live in the state of Washington were recreational marijuana is legal hi I work in the state of Oregon were record a recreational marijuana is legal Colorado's also legalized it and it's effectively legal in in Alaska and yet it's still illegal at the federal level since the Goldwater institute does so much of its work at the state level what do you think would happen if a state were to say we will allow stage to drugs to be used in our state and effectively they'd be daring the federal government to come in and try to stop them from doing it assuming you can get a set of pharmaceutical company it was willing to do it by saying well you've already agreed to ignore the illegal use the federally illegal use of pot in all these states why don't you let us do this as well here we're not talking about recreation we're talking about saving lives do you do you think that kind of argument would work well I think we're gonna see a guy that that unfold as a matter of fact have adopted these right to try lots of the states are saying it's perfectly legal for terminal patients have access to these drugs the federal law says no it isn't and we argue you looking at you you talked about Oregon Oregon has the right to die laws were the U. S. Supreme Court has upheld the right of the states to make these medical decisions and and how those things regulated at the state level and we think it's those very provisions that will also protect the right to try to save your life so you think that they they would be able to get away with it how would the federal government responded that when every doctor while the doctors are licensed by the state if I understand correctly there drug prescribing privileges come from the federal government and what do you think the federal government would be willing to say we'll let one of those little fifty laboratories of democracy try this out and if it doesn't work out well then we can simply say it it didn't work out well and that's why we have the the process we have now or would they go in and try to shut down a doctor and say you've given drugs to a patient that are not federally approved and we're going to yank your beer D. a probe of privileges well I think the FDA politically is going to have a hard time going after physicians in this situation because we're not talking about smoking pot we're talking about people with Lou Gehrig's disease and lung cancer and brain cancer and terminal illnesses who have no other options left and we're talking about very serious researchers and physicians who are treating these folks this is the law that's passed on a margin of ninety nine to one across the United States it has overwhelming support is one of the sponsors said that you know it's a two minute decision and the first one is for the Cup of coffee people believe in this and this is a democracy so for the FDA to come in and and take a life saving treatment away from a cancer patient I think would be pretty difficult politically however if they do try to do that we are ready to defend the doctors and the patients that is what we do at the Goldwater institute and we will defend their rights all the way up to the US Supreme Court all right if you don't mind I'm talking to Darcy Olson is the author of the right to try would you mind walking my listeners her I'm hoping that not too many of them are up against this kind of life threatening situation but how would they go about the process of getting through you know the paperwork and the bureaucracy to obtain a life saving drug for a family member for themselves through the investigation investigational process and did they run the risk that they'll be told will be because it's investigational you might be getting a placebo and you might be getting the real deal or can they assure themselves that they might actually get the drugs they need I walk through all of this in my book and there is a chapter on how to go about exercising your right to try under these new state laws it's it's sound is it hard it is well it's it did lots are brand new and so you have to find a physician who is willing to to treat you and you have to find a company that's willing to or a manufacturer that's willing to give you a treatment there are patients being treated under the laws right now so we know that there are multiple physicians who are doing this and willing to move forward but we also know that there will be some companies who say no way I don't wanna get crosswise with the FDA I don't want to risk the ultimate approval of this drug so it it's not a guaranteed green light but at least the door is more open than it was before and we certainly encourage people to try to fight for this the right is there it is on the books and now it's up to you to patients and their families and physicians to go out and make that right there people approach their doctor on something like this is their doctor realistically up against the threat that if they try to help a patient whose fully informed of what the risks are and what they're about to do that that doctor still might put his or her entire career and at risk that is possible although we think it's very very unlikely that the FDA would come down on an individual doctor particularly when they are trying to save someone who is you know on the on on the verge of data and we are certainly prepared to defend those doctors and you think that most of the families who find themselves in these circumstances would also agreed to forgo possible legal action against the doctors long as as they're told this is what you're getting into this is what you need to be aware of these are the risks you're taking to try to get this life saving treatment have there been any examples where families and said well you know I mean because these days everyone is so litigious that a hot Cup of coffee in your lap means three million Bucks I could see people being concerned that if I try to do this to help this family save the life of a family member that doesn't work out well they may decide to exacts retribution from me if I'm a doctor sure will you sign the same type of informed consent that you would sign in a clinical trial that says some of the side effects may be unknown but you know you so if the if the doctor does something that completely negligent you know you still have rights under the law I have very similar to the clinical trial process so so far we have not seen physicians be be concerned about that look these these folks are terminal and what they'll tell you is look at I know what's going to happen if I don't get a treatment and I've got four kids at home so give me the right to try you know there and the they tend to to really appreciate their physicians for going the extra mile there's not really an area for for being litigious of of the you know these are folks who are desperate to try to try to live and try to protect their children to protect themselves what else is needed to get the other two states to sign off on this or some of them just simply not not to in a mode where there were they're going to be willing to do that well our sweet we just couldn't move out quickly that happened in the last twelve months so the state legislatures most of them will open in January again and we will go in and and talk to legislators about this and we picked up another fifteen or twenty states the only see where we've had a veto so far as California where you had governor Jerry Brown honestly find the right to die laws so he said you have a terminal illness you can take a drug to hasten your death but he vetoed the right to trial live so it you know their it's really a culture of death and you know what a lot of folks with terminal illnesses are saying is you know that's great to give us that option but what if we want to try to continue to fight for our lives shouldn't we have that right see I'm not a fan of the the the doctor assisted suicide laws I've I've I've been in the state where they've had at the longest the book is called the right to try how the federal government prevents Americans from getting the life saving treatments they need its author is Darcy Olsen the president of the Goldwater institute ms Olson I really appreciate the time and I thank you Larry you bet you're listening to Lars Larsen show.

The president take unallocated sense money in Hughes it, but it can't be to support military.

Normally he would need to get that money from congress, but they refuse to pay shimmer Inskeep thinks the lawsuit from California and New Mexico has a chance of succeeding, he expects at least one suit involving the wall to eventually end up before the supreme court. Mark Mayfield news ninety three point one. K. F B K members of congress are considering a Bill to raise the federal minimum wage to fifteen dollars an hour, Wall Street investor, Gary kaltbaum of cult bomb capital management. It's our big audio clip this hour, and he told FOX business that raising the minimum wage to fifteen dollars, an hour nationally, would be job, killer, and would really hurt small businesses. Look when you mandate, higher costs, the business Vigouroux react, and how they going to react a, they're gonna go to automation. I don't know if you've seen airports with all the kiosks. And if you go to McDonald's with the same. That's one and you know what else happens. Somebody would get a job at maybe ten or eleven dollars, an hour will not get one at fifteen dollars an hour. If demon, you'll have less implants. Look, aunt Mary, and uncle Bob running small businesses, if they can't take the costs they are going to do something about it is just simple. Logic. He might be right. But here's the reality Christina way, too many Americans have not been able to keep up the cost of living. Okay, too. Many can't afford to pay rent buy a house. So this aid comes down to this does industry in corporate America step up and start paying bigger wages for their workers or does the government have to step in and raise the minimum wage nationwide like has been done in California, right? You're absolutely right in California were kind of a microcosm of the rest of the country and people are particularly having a hard time making it here and buying a home. But it's happening across the country. Wages are not keeping up. So they're either there has to be pressure. One way or the other to get wages up or get prices down. So people. Can afford to live.

Washington's Inslee puts climate change at center of presidential bid
"It's been said that nothing is stronger than an idea whose time has come and for my next guest. Washington state governor Jay Inslee that idea is climate change. And that idea is time has come he staked his run for the White House in twenty twenty on what he calls America's climate mission. And his campaign platform says that quote, defeating climate change is the defining challenge of our time. And that it must be the foremost priority for the next president. That's a bold statement considering that climate change was practically a non issue in the last presidential election. There were no specific questions about climate policy in the debates, and according to the environmental new site, grist only, five minutes and twenty seven seconds were spent talking about climate change across all three presidential debates. That's two percent of the total talking time. So has the tide turned. Is the American public ready for a candidate who embraces this issue? That's what we're going to be talking about on our question to you listeners. How important is climate change compared to other national issues when it comes to winning your vote in the next presidential election on eight four four seven two four eight two five five eight four four scientific you can tweet us at scifi governor Jay Inslee as governor of Washington state. He's jumped into the pool of democratic presidential candidates for twenty twenty welcome to sign Friday governor, you bet it's the best day of the week. Thank you. Happy Friday because of you. Complimentary. Get you everywhere you've been called a single issue candidate. Would you disagree with that name? Yes. Because climate change is not a single issue. It's all issues. It's a matter of saving our economic assets where we had one point six billion dollars in lost because of leading west on the downside. The upside it's the number one job creator in United States in the next several decades clean energy jobs today are going twice as fast as the rest of the economy. The number one job fastest growing jealous. Today's solar installer. Never to wind turbine technician. So it is as much an economic promise as it is an environmental peril. It's a health issue. Look, it's with the thousands of our kids are suffering from from fossil fuel pollution, increasing the range of infectious diseases because of insect vectors loss of life during during hurricanes and heat waves. It's a national security issue. We know that the Trump is trying. To ignore the clear warnings from the Pentagon, and our intelligence services that this is a national security threat because we know that increasing droughts have potential to drive mass migrations with consequent political instability in violence. So it's not just a single issue is all of the issues, and is one that we have no more opportunities. This is our last chance. And when I've learned when he was governor as I've been for six years in the most successful economy in the United States you need to make priority decisions. It's one of the first functions leadership, and what I am saying is defeating climate change has to be the first foremost and term on duty of the next semester. Ration- because it is our last chance if you look at the clearest science fi report, it is becoming quite obvious that we've gotta move right now. Someone so much of the impacts of climate change that you were taking off there also seem to be included in the the green new deal that is working its way debating through congress, would you if you were still serving in congress, would you have your name among its co-sponsors? I think this has been a welcome development. I wrote a book accosted a book in two thousand seven that basically set out a vision for economic growth round clean energy. So I really welcome a wet. This is done to light up interest in this as as you indicated it's really important to get climate change on people's radar stope, and this has been very successful getting into the national conversation. It's also been very successful raising the scope of people's ambition. This cannot be just a check the box kind of issue. It has to be dominant organizing principle, the United States and insert. It's it's engaged. More communities in this discussion marginalize means frontline community just color in poverty that was the first victims of climate change. And so it's made clear something I believe that. As we go through this transition to decarbonised economy and a clean energy economy. We have to make this not. Just the transition. It has to be just transitioned so everyone can participate. So now, we start the heavy work at hard work of developing the policies that hopefully will follow what we've done in Washington right now, we're of beating the efforts in Washington state. And I hope we keep that that ball rolling. So how do you answer people who say addressing climate change is is too expensive? Or they want to take your hamburgers away from you. Well, I just say baloney. You know, I was having a discussion with big McCain of you a couple of weeks ago, and she was seeing exactly that. But, you know, Democrats take away your planes and your your railroads in your car. And I said, well, that's interesting Megan because as of this moment, I had a shiny blue General Motors all electric bowl. It was made by the American workers and Oreo on Michigan. And that's the type of destiny that we have. Usually, we'll have a president to unite the edgy nations in the innate can-do optimistic spirit of the American people to grow our economy around clean energy. We know we are capable of doing this. Because we've done we've done it so many times before whenever there has been a technological transformation. United States has been able to lead if we have leadership to get us going in. If I'm giving us Highlander I would intend to provide that that spark of leadership just to like John F Kennedy did when. When I was, you know, ten or eleven years of anything, and I believe with the spark of creativity ambition America can do that kind of thing again. But do you think that you know, I remember the Kennedy years? I remember the challenge they go to the moon. I remember Lyndon Johnson taking it over. I remember landing on the moon during the Nixon administration. This was a generational and decade long effort. Do we have that kind of political muscle now to see something through that we could change a whole society? Yes. Not only do we. But we have to have that. You know, what I think victory is the only option here Churchill in World War Two. So sure victory. You said it's really simple. It's only option because without victory. There's no survival. And that is the situation that we have to realize today if we follow science, and we we are scientifically literate nation. We deserve a scientifically literate president. And we have a scientifically illiterate person in that office right now who couple of days ago said that wind turbines cause cancer for goodness sakes. And that if we wind turbines, you won't be able to run your television here, we are going to Konami in my state. We've developed the best economy in the United States in part because we focused on clean energy. We have focused on science in. When you do those two things. Good things happen. Not only to your health. To prevent your force from burning down. And by the way, this is very personal to me 'cause I've met the victims of climate change. I was in paradise California a few months ago, and you know, this town of twenty five thousand people that was burned to the ground looks like a post apocalypse movie in Hollywood, I remember meeting a woman named Marsha. Moss in in seminal springs community about one hundred mobile homes burned. She lost everything. She wanted us to to do something about climate change to produce these forest. Fires. And I think we need a president that will do just that. So yes, I do believe we we the company's ready. And I and I believe that park is pulling in shooting Iowa one of our democratic voters. So I'm happy to the just in time at the right moment. He yet carbon pricing ballot initiative failed in your own state in the last election for the second time another pricing initiative failed in two thousand sixteen. What do these failures mean to you are, you know, are people still not getting it? I think what they show is that we have to be willing to use the most powerful Newell fuel in the country, and that's perseverance, and we have to use perseverance, and we have to use a multiple tools in the toolbox carbon pricing system is one of them with. Fortunately, there are dozens of others. And so we are we are now addressing I'm promoting five bills in my legislature, all of which are moving forward one of which would would guarantee Washingtonians of one hundred percent, clean electrical grid, another that would provide us with clean fuel standards. So we have cleaner transportation fuels and other that would require net of euro commercial building. So we don't waste energy another that will have an incentive program. So more people not just you know, wealthier people, but more people have access to the cars and the like, so we know there's a. Multiple ways to go forward on this. And we're doing this in my state, and I think we have to have the same attitude inner nation, we can do that. If we have a president who's both knowledge of what these things and has had a multi decay. Oh commitment as I've had I've been at this year over twenty years now into some of the first legislation in two thousand three I started the US climate alliance with governor Jerry Brown, we know twenty three states or moving forward. I think this is a good sign, by the way for those. Who question our ability to move forward? This organization that I helped start now twenty three states that are committed to defeating climate change. So and we did this in part because we wanted to world to know they're still intelligent life in the United States. And we've demonstrated that it's one of the reasons that the rest of the world is continuing to move forward. So there is reason for optimism because we know there's there's many ways to to build the clean energy. And we're doing that right here in my state. Let's go to the phones. Eight four four seven two four two five five. Let's go to Ames Iowa. Joe? I welcome to science Friday. Hi, thank you. You know, I think it's really points out of a real flaw. We have in our election system every four years. I see all of these politicians come to Iowa, and they speak at these forums put on by our agriculture powerhouses, all of them speak in favour of everything. That has to do with, you know, animal agriculture ethanol all of these things that really cause global warming and all of them are scared to death to speak out against anything to do with animal agriculture because they know that the farm bureau is other powerful egg this will sink in that even goes, I mean, it's it's completely true for the Republican party.
"governor jerry brown" Discussed on 760 KFMB Radio
"Twenty four minutes before the hour on Tuesday mornings. I live at pretty much says it all don't stand. So close to me is something politicians do perhaps it's an older political kind of thing. And the thing that older politicians do from the earlier era. But you know, I've never seen Moore. Human beings touching each other than politicians. You know, you see some of these. It's interesting to watch some men, especially some of these may even older men Capitol Hill, you see them in in the halls of congress, or in the cloakroom, some of these guys who you might even think are homophobes, they're always I mean, they'll they'll walk arm in arm with one of their colleagues, they put an arm on their shoulders. They're always touching each other. If it's part of a generational thing. It's part of a thing from the days when politics was much more retail kind of one on one kind of thing, you're always touching. You. Don't just shake a hand. It's a two handed shake, it's an arm on the shoulder. It's it's sort of the cultural thing, but it's it's fading. It's different. Now, we have we have different sensibilities because a lot of people don't like to be touched. I don't like to be touched by strangers. And yet, I'm a person who likes to touch people that I like, you know, put a hand on a shoulder. You know, that sort of thing my son's thirteen I still kiss him on the head even in front of his friends. He doesn't seem to while he's gotten used to it because he doesn't have choice. But you know, it's it's. Those days are gone. You can't do that anymore. And there are still some folks who do that. I remember the picture of this goes back to George W Bush. You might remember at a big economics summit over in Europe. And there's a picture of Angela Merkel, the chancellor of Germany and arguably the most powerful woman in the world sitting there minding our own business, and George W Bush the American president walks up behind her and puts his hands on starts giving her a shoulder. Neck rub quite by surprise. And as you she looked very very shocked. I mean, she didn't like him much to begin with. And that really kind of you know, that shocked her I don't think she thought she was being sexually assaulted. It was just like why are you putting your hands on me? And it's surprising me like that. But that's what the politicians of a certain age. You know, think is okay. Joe Biden is one of those folks he's you know, he's been around. He's been in Washington for forty years, and he's a very very touchy feely guy. He's a very warm and sensitive, man. It's. Kind of thing that makes him popular. Even you know, a lot of those Senate Republicans who might attack him in public. They all like him personally. He's just one of those one of those people it's hard to be around and not like, but the time has passed where you can just go up and put your hands on somebody or kissed him on the head or rub their nose. You know, one of those eskimo knows rub things can't do it. So that's what we're facing in two thousand twenty and we're going to get your up to date on where we stand now with a second allegation that the former vice president touched a woman in a way that she felt was inappropriate. Steve Kastenbaum tells us it took place in Connecticut ten years ago, Michael it was during a fundraiser in Greenwich in two thousand nine when Amy Lotto's claims, then vice president Biden grabbed her by the head pulled toward him and rubbed noses with her. She I told her story on the Facebook page. Connecticut women in politics in an interview with the Hartford current lap. Oh said it wasn't sexual. But at first she thought he was going to kiss her on the mouth. She told the newspaper that she felt Biden crossed the line of respect that it wasn't grandfatherly. She said something like that is quote, not cultural. It's not affection. It's sexism and misogyny end quote lap. Bose said if Biden truly supports women and gender equality. He would step aside and support one of the many talented and qualified women who are running for president her story came to light just a few days after Nevada politician went public with a story about something that happened to her at a rally in twenty fourteen state assemblywoman Lucy Flora's claims Biden put his hands on her shoulders smelled her hair, and then kissed the top of her head floors spoke about it on CNN state of the union. I fully recognize that that this behavior. Never do. I claim that this was that rises to the level of a sexual assault or anything of that nature. What I am saying is that it's completely inappropriate that it does not belong to any kind of a professional setting much less than. In politics. And that is something that we should consider when we are talking about the background of a person who is considering running for president some donors who are at that fundraiser in Greenwich in two thousand nine said the photo ops with the vice president were in good fun and Biden did nothing inappropriate. When asked about this latest claim a spokesperson for Biden referred reporters to the statement. He released on Sunday it he said he never once thought he acted inappropriately. He said, quote, I mean, not recall these moments the same way, and I may be surprised at what I hear. But we have arrived at an important time when women feel they can and should relate their experiences and men should pay attention, and I will end quote, Michael. All right. Thanks, Steve Kastenbaum, reporting four first light where we are. Now at nineteen minutes before the hour. I have to stop myself. Sometimes, you know, you wanna just touch somebody on the arm or maybe walk up get their attention. Give them a little tap. I don't even do that anymore. Because you know, it's just it's. A different time and you need to respect people's boundaries. Are the concept of personal space has gotten stronger in recent years and rightly so women don't want to be manhandled or touched inappropriately or even you know, you don't wanna get too close. You don't wanna do that? So where are we in the presidential race? It's very interesting here that. You know, people think well Biden is too old to run to begin with. But you know, one of the things about presidential elections is we tend to on the opposite direction from what we had before. And it's interesting that in the Democratic Party, the two people pulling the best right now are the oldest candidates in the race couple of old stirs. You have Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden, they're the most popular of the presidential contenders. Of course, a lot of that could just be name recognition at this point. But it sort of reminds me back in in California when they when voters they're elected governor Jerry Brown to a second round as governor he'd been governor forty years before he was governor. And I think he was elected for the first time in nineteen seventy four served a couple of terms left politics for awhile came back in and wasn't attorney general and the mayor of of Oakland, and then ran for for governor again and he replaced an outsider showbiz personality. Arnold schwarzenegger. So it could be the same kind of thing happening again. It's interesting that the support for these older candidates, and even for Jerry Brown came from young people who maybe saw something comforting in the fact that there was somebody who had been around who share. As many of their of their ideology and goals, and and has experience, and as the opposite of the person that they just had a governor Schwarzenegger was not popular by the end of his term. He was not seen as a specially effective. And so, you know, it could happen, but has the time passed for a guy like Joe Biden with that hands on retail style of politicking we'd like to find out what you think eight hundred seven three six three six six six eight hundred seven three six three six six six. Give us a call. And we'll.

"Live thanks for being here on this Saturday evening, we're here until seven o'clock on a snowy, rainy, Saturday all throughout northern California. And so we're leading with the weather in this program. And we're talking a little bit about the apocalyptic prediction from Harrison Ford. Well, known actor Indiana Jones suggesting that climate change is going to doom the entire planet. Very very soon. If we don't do something he didn't really get into specifics. But anyway. That is out there, and we're going to hear from governor Jerry Brown in a minute. Now, what Harrison Ford did in this PSA. This public service announcement is he he gave he gives us a pop apocalyptic prediction. And then he has a call to action, which they often do you need to join this particular group, and then you need to donate this amount of money. And then we get you know, then we can save the world. And this is not unusual because if you look back, historically, this is what happens in many, many movements that people politicians leaders, scientists actors whomever will use fear as a motivating tool they will do this the lead up to war. They'll do it. If there is a confrontation with another country in this particular case, it has to do with our planet the environment the safety. And the reason that it's used a lot of times by big governments is to control people the general population. If you scare them, you're just you convince him to take steps. Hey, we're going to keep you safe. It's going to be okay. Let's just do these donate this amount of money to this particular cause in and everything's gonna be fine. So you always I think are wise to keep the motivation of a message. No matter whom ever is is producing that message. Always keep that in mind. Why are they saying what they're saying? What's the motivation? How do they know what they're saying is true? Do they believe it or do they have an agenda? Is there a narrative that they're trying to drive for a different purpose for a different reason? We'll get to governor. Then governor Jerry Brown's comments. About what place when we went through the drought here not too long ago and how he tied that to climate change in just a second. But this got me to wondering about in the past. There have been other predictions other apocalyptic predictions about where we were going to be with our environment in the past many years ago, and I wanted to go back in history and just take a look at some of the crazy predictions that never came true. And when you talk about fear being a common thread listened to some of these this is nine thousand nine hundred seventy why nineteen seventy do you know that that was the beginning of Earth Day, nineteen seventy. Okay. Here's what leading scientists from leading universities across the world were saying not all of them. But some of them Harvard biologist George Wald nineteen seventy s tweeted that quote, civilization will end within fifteen or thirty years unless immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind. So in seventy if you add fifteen that puts us at eighty five we made it through eighty five. At another fifteen were a two thousand and we've made it George Wald of Harvard was wrong. Next one. This is from Washington University biologist berry commoner during an Earth Day issue of the scholarly journal environment. This is what he wrote we are in an environmental crisis. This is one thousand nine hundred seventy which threatens the survival of this nation and of the world as a suitable place of human habitation. Thankfully, we made it. Okay. Next one. And there are there are more than I'm not kidding. There are more than I can get in in two hours here. This is from Paul Erlich in one thousand nine hundred sixty nine. Quote, most of the people who are going to die in the greatest cataclysm in history of man have already been born. This was in one thousand nine hundred sixty nine he wrote an essay called eco catastrophe. He writes by nineteen seventy-five, some experts feel that food shortages, we'll have escalated to the present level of world hunger and starvation into families of unbelievable proportions by nineteen seventy-five. He's predicting famine. In one thousand nine hundred sixty nine. Other experts. He writes are more optimistic and they think ultimate food population. Collision will not occur until the decade of the nineteen eighties. So at the time Paul Erlich was considered to be an expert. On the environment. And. The. Future of what he called the eco catastrophe in one thousand nine hundred sixty nine of our planet. I'll read one more than I want to get to the Jerry Brown song. This is from Dennis Hays who was the chief organizer for Earth Day in nineteen seventy and this is a direct quote. It is already too late to avoid mass starvation. He wrote that in the spring of nineteen seventy in an issue of a periodical called the living wilderness was already too late in nineteen seventy. So they were predicting this mass starvation. Leading up to seventy five in the mid eighties famine across the world, there are more on those are just a few of the I've got a couple of more than I'll read for you. And none of this came true. These are some of the leading experts in the late sixties and early seventies. And this is what they were predicting do, you know, the time magazine the cover of time magazine nineteen seventy four was predicting an ice age. It was on the cover of time magazine. And now, we look back, and you say, you know, maybe we should have been questioning that. Obviously, none of that came true. All right. Let's get to the next clip in we we'll get to the phones quickly before we get into the break. This is then governor Jerry Brown. This is in two thousand eighteen he was speaking at the World Economic Forum. He was talking about climate change at a summit that he held when he was governor in San Francisco. Remember this? This wasn't too long ago yield. That's summit. Now, keep in mind, some of the apocalyptic predictions that we just heard from Harrison Ford when you listen to Jerry Brown. We came together in San Francisco to confront the global threat of of warming and drought at mass by rations and starvation starvation, mass migrations route all the dire predictions. Okay. Let's go to the phones very quickly. We've got Michael from colefax calling in on a wet rainy snowy Saturday. I'm Michael how are you? Good afternoon. Sam it's just. I consider myself an environmentalist. A same environmentalist. There are things that people do that. We ought to do. But I will believe these radicals were they start demonstrating in miss. The Chinese Indian embassies like in San Francisco or any of these other the places that are located in this country. I guess every big city with that starts up being really believe that they're really into this. The fact that people cannot even hardly breezy year. Beijing is crazy. Right. And yet we hear nothing nothing about it. From these modern-day environmentalists. There. We're doing there. Going in devastating at these overseas. In my opinion, puts the lie to all of their extremism. So it's if they'd seen what's LA look like back in the late sixties early seventies. It looks like now I see how much we've done just stay low right cleaning up the air. Absolutely. No. I I totally agree. I look there's a double standard out there, Michael. And the world can't seem to come together as much as some have tried to get this under control. Because at the end of the day comes down to money, it's economics, and it costs money to keep the air clean. And what what exactly is leading to climate change has never really fully been proven scientifically without a doubt. That's the issue. You know, and we all struggle with that. I remember the time cover that show the large glaciers coming into downtown New York seeing that. The other thing it's been mentioned on your program before I think your program, it's been certainly. And before. Electric. Leo. See? What's to have? Yes. You still need to burn fossil fuel in order to produce the city. Absolutely. Our all of this stuff. These people are just. You make a great point. It is a total misnomer to suggest that electric cars are somehow green and clean to create electrcity can be very very dirty whether it's nuclear whether it's coal fired. No matter what your fossil fuel you bring up a great point. And we kid ourselves if we think, oh, that's an electric car. It's so much cleaner. Plus, I'm hearing. Rush about what? Does cold weather does to batteries these cars that's shutting down? I'm always glad to see when someone makes a step a scene. Commonsense. Step help, clean up our environment. Right. Are there? It's a political thing. It's not anything at all to do with the. Notice the most of the people that are doing it or the socialist Democrats a bit difficult registered democrat for over thirty six years, but a little socialist. So just independent. Well, okay. Michael, listen, thanks a lot. I do appreciate the call Michael Cullen in from Colfax. No phone number here. Nine one six nine to one fifteen thirty one eight hundred eight three four fifteen thirty. How do you feel about that what he just had to say and some of the predictions that were wildly made back in nineteen seventy which have proven to be completely erroneous by some of the leading scientists in the country. And are we headed down that path? Now, I'm Sam Shane. This is KFI. We're back in a moment. We.

Well, this is big this happened in your own backyard, and my own former backyard and knowingly exposing someone to HIV will no longer be a felony in California. Oh, yeah. Oh, see. Yes. So governor Jerry Brown wing Li knowingly exposing someone to each of you will no longer be a felony in California. It's going to be so Gary governor Jerry Brown signed a Bill Friday that lowers from felony to a misdemeanor. Jerry Brown's not our government and be more. It's Gavin Newsom.

While somebody signed this Bill. Governor governor of California's I those spell so this also plays to giving blood. Now, this was led by my blue state, Senator Scott Weiner, who I was supposed to get set up on a date with. But did not, and we'll see what what he's a bed is a random, can, you know, I have I just want nothing more than to marry some gay politician, man. I will be somewhat. Okay. No. I wanna be the Robin right to his Barack Obama. Don't. It was a lot. I like those of their those some good dexterity there. I want to applaud you on. Because you you cherry picked the good. Yeah.

Right trysts to marry politician, man. So glad you got my cherry pick Corless, really good. And you did that off the cuff? It's well, it's something I've been thinking about like, maybe. Okay. So my boo was saying that today, California took a major step treating HIV as a public health issue instead of treating people living with HIV as criminals HIV like all other series and pictures diseases. And that's what this Bill is doing. So the idea that it's going to reduce stigma and the commercialization of someone's health issue, essentially, and it's believed the current deters people from wanting to get tested from knowing. HIV status. An HIV is not the death sentence at once wise. Remember, what happened to tiger dingo who ended up survey tenure presence prison service? We talked about like episode six way back in the day. This has been used to send many game in around the country to jail often by a jury not of their peers, you just see them as gay and evil lock them up like that either. So porters of the Bill also said that women engaging in prostitution or also disproportionately targeted with criminal charges. Even cases infection was not even transmitted. So here's my thing. And I usually, you know, me I am as liberal as they come. But if someone knowingly infected with HIV, I would be pissed I'm not saying that I want them to be seen as a felony. But I do feel like I mean, like it's the same thing like with any STI. Well, that's the thing. That's what they're treating. And so. That you're committing someone to murder, and you're and so really like we haven't changed our stigma Arale worked through them in my own brain, which is good.

"Comments coming up on the Mike Slater show the first back to Mark Larson. Jerry brown. Couple weeks discount money up there in that the palatial estate for they did say they fixed that road. We can't get a roads fixing some places here. They fixed that one we did Californians after eight years California's governor Jerry Brown is a new job reports the Sacramento bee. Tracking the apocalypse today. The former governor governor Jerry Brown version B version three point oh now will announce whether the minute hand of the doomsday clock. And here we just mentioned this randomly yesterday with Slater. Measurement of humanity's proximity to total annihilation whether the clock has moved or not. He is now executive chairman Brown is of the bulletin of atomic. Scientists a nonprofit organization founded by Manhattan project, scientists after a nuclear proliferation went nuts because as you know, we all have nuclear weapons that are on homes. So we'll talk about the doomsday clock today. They have a nice day. What you just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things. I've ever heard and Jerry's gonna share that coming up today. We'll all breathe a sigh of relief, maybe not Rachel Bavard joins us senior director policy at the conservative partnership institute in Washington DC, the only place loonier than Sacramento and the state capital is Washington DC where raven now there's is there fire where there's smoke in terms of political activity. I know we've got these two dueling open the partial government shutdown funding measures tomorrow. What are you seeing there? Rachel, what's. Going on who's gonna winters. Nobody's gonna win. Well in Washington. No one wins ever. That we could encouraging. But I am I running back and forth, actually. Oh, I can tell they're jamming your frequency running back and forth between buildings. Yes. Yes. But yeah, we have to those coming up tomorrow in the Senate one on a funding Bill with the wall with Trump's proposal, which is the wall in exchange for immigration proposals. And then one without both. We'll have to garner sixty votes to pass the Senate and both are expected to fail so not much movement. But more than we've seen the last thirty three days. So why bother if that's the way it is? I know that there whether it's fifty three Republicans. They're not always like they like to save when they talk Republicans in lockstep. I and I know by CNN loves to say that because that brings back images of the Nazis or Kim Jong shock troops marching through the square while people starve, but. There's always one or two Republicans who liked the glare of television lights, and they decide to go rogue. There are some Democrats who could very well. Go along with apparently what three or four of those. So then you're short the sixty votes needed. Right. That's other mathworks. Yeah. That's right. And you know, I think this is you have to start somewhere, and sometimes you have to have a single couple of singles before you can get a home run to be fair. A lot of conservatives have been asking for this. They've been saying look why aren't we putting both on the floor or bills on the floor? Why aren't we boating up more security bills forced Democrats to have to take votes because you can't vote no over and over and over again without some kind of consequence. And so I think this is the start of what will hopefully be a longer process now, the Democrats actually have to take boats and feel the heap, but we'll have to see. But. Yeah, house continues to send over Bill. The Senate will pass and the Senate is still trying to find a path to sixty votes. So what's going on with the way? Okay. The nice question about Kevin McCarthy. In terms of the much ado about nothing me here. The Senate going through the motions they know what the result is Trump's forcing Pelosi now that they let them do the state of the union message. Anyway, there's all of that Trump has also proposed in this compromise. Which is in one of these bills. To to do what Pelosi says that you want? So as a lot of people are starting to feel more pain, including TSA, employees or members of the coast guard Fisher in San Diego. We got a lot of these stories the pressures on that you get the people getting stuck in the middle of politics here. So when does this end or what do they do next or does Trump does it? I still feel like Trump maybe would go to this national emergency declaration. Listen, they're not doing it. The way we tried to do it. So I want to do this is that possible is that where it goes? I I I do think the White House is keeping all the options on the table. And I know they are actively trying to negotiate. I mean, Trump has had numerous meetings today with conservative groups with members of congress to try to come to some kind of solution. It's Democrats house. Democrats are refusing to come to the White House. He'd have to do to deal with more junior. Members of the house speaker Pelosi won't speak to him. So the White House is actually trying to come to a solution here. And I think they would prefer that. It'd be something that congress act so it forces congress, Jack, they want congress to fund the wall, and they're willing to trade some compromises for that. But I think Democrats are upset, you know, they refused to even consider giving anybody Trump wall. And that's why to great extent, we're still here. We're talking with Rachel Bavard, the senior director policy conservative partnership institute in Washington DC, and she's running back and forth and and good physical conditioner because you're I know you're racing back and forth between the Senate office buildings in the capital. And of course, it's still winter. So let's remember that you wrote an op Ed piece references a little bit earlier this morning here on the show, but a piece about Kevin McCarthy. I like Kevin McCarthy personally when he started running it got to these new levels of influence and so forth, but he is to be fair pretty slick when it comes to being he wants to give me a shout out across Fifth Avenue, New York. It's like how does he remember this stuff, please a very skilled politician? But he's now the leading Republican voice in in the minority side now Pelosi being in the majority in the house. So so where does that go? He was at one time supposed to be speaker that didn't work out obviously post bainer. But now he's what just like banner. Does it needed to go on the cannabis business eventually to bainer not? Yeah. That if he falls banners track. Yeah. That will be the manifest destiny. We'd lobbyist. But I think conservatives in particular were hoping Kevin McCarthy would be a strong minority leader, you know, one that really spoke and unified the conference to sort of cut in opposing figure to the Democrats. But unfortunately, he did take a page out of Venus book last week and started enacting political retribution on people that voted against him for minority leader. Most recently this happened to congressman Jody hice Georgia. Jody hice was a prominent member of the house freedom caucus voted for Jim Jordan for minority leader and four that McCarthy, kicked high off the House Armed Services committee response. And you know, I think it's a disappointing move not only because hope that as the minority leader he would be focusing on other things like trying to fix the shutdown rather these political revenge tactics. But I think it is disappointed. You know, we had hoped for a little bit more from McCarthy. And I hope that this does not continuing. Well, time will tell I'm guessing here, by the way, there is more breaking news. Everything's breaking news, of course, in the world to CNN and so forth, but Pelosi now is answering the Trump letter she will not consider the resolution allowing us to allow the state of the union speech. We're back to that. I just thought what she may be trying to do because the speaker is you know, has to invite the president this is part of the routine thing. That's normally not a big deal. But she I site security concerns last week than Trump says, hey, I talked to homeland security. Everything's fine. I'm going to deliver this next week. She says, oh, no. No, you're not. So what does she she bolts the doors Trump comes over? Anyway, maybe her strategy seven to think like Chris Cuomo, and these people do not maybe her strategy is to make Trump have to give the speech on the cold winter steps of the capitol. And then you know, what happened on inauguration day? Well, you don't because you weren't there. Neither was I believe king was back in the eighteen hundreds when William Henry Harrison was being inaugurated, and he caught death of cold and was dead a month later, we got what Tyler. So she's trying to kill him. That's what it would save was the other way around you realize what did they say? Where does he do the speech where you hearing any buzz about that? Does he go and rent a hall some places you go to the Senate? What what he'll give it somewhere. Now. Yeah. You know, the White House staff as long as the ones I've talked to you. I said it's sort of open for discussion. I think they obviously prefer to give it in congress. But that takes a joint resolution I have to be approved by both houses to invite the president. And it's like you said he said he's going to do that. Good luck. Talked about doing it at the border. They've talked about, you know, read Thiede stadium and doing it as a rally, but I think that obviously prefer to do it as every other president has done it. So I think this is a it's a feud at this point between closely and Trump. And I don't know where it ends to be quite honest. Well, I'll tell you what there's more excitement now about state of the union message on has been for a long time. To bring out the solid. Gold dancers to spice it up a little bit too. Maybe we'll do that. All right. Good luck out. There be careful Rachel we'll keep an eye on these votes. Think we'll both go down tomorrow in terms of solving anything in the Senate. So back to back to go again. All right. Thanks be saved. Rachel Bavard conservative partnership institute, senior director policy working hard. They're working harder than the senators do in the nation's capital, which is Washington DC. In case you missed that lesson in public schools. So speaking of Chris Cuomo, the conscience of CNN. Why is he a piece of work? I mean bless his heart. But he had because I know his dad was Mario Cuomo gave a great speech was governor of New York gave a speech at eighty four and went onto political whoop de do which is. Yeah. So he was going off last night on these kids from Covington high school. They're just not letting up even though we now know the rest of that story here. He is talking about those kids where were the chaperons why did a school event involved?.

"Till midnight. Partly cloudy day today with patchy morning fog will have highs from the upper fifties to low sixty s the time is five fifty one. This is the California report. Good morning. I'm lily Jamali. It is a big day for our new governor Gavin Newsom he puts out his proposed state budget today, and we're expecting to see I think the technical term is like way more health spending than was the case under former governor Jerry Brown Newsom also has some eyebrow. Raising ideas on how to save money. He wants all state agencies that by prescription drugs to come together in one huge bargaining unit pool, you're buying power drive down drug costs. That's the idea. Anyway, kick, you ease April Dembosky reports. This idea has come up before back in two thousand fifteen as the state was reeling from thousand dollar hepatitis C pills. Jerry Brown called for a task force to look into collective bargaining over drug prices, medical covered, California, CalPERS workers comp the prison system state mental Hoffman system, we buy a lot of drunk mardi Morgenstern was a board member for the state's Affordable Care Act marketplace at the time, and I'm just wondering if there isn't some way we can leverage that have some impact on the drug companies. This is one of the first things governor Newsom wants to do the day. He was born into office. He issued an executive order directing medical health plans and state agencies to bargain for drugs together insurance companies are cautiously optimistic John Backus is CEO of LA care health plan, which covers two million Californians a lot of oh goal. But a lot of it will depend on the detail. Sales of it. And how it operates he says a lot of large health plans already have good deals with drug companies, and some are worried a state based system could become too bureaucratic for patients. We would really wanna see administratively how it works. So that it doesn't become more burdensome than the benefit. We're going to get governor Newsom wants the system for health plans up and running by twenty twenty one. Eventually he wants to find a way for local governments and even small businesses to be part of the bargaining team to the California report. I mean, Tim Bosque President Trump's tweet yesterday saying he's ordered FEMA to stop sending money to California has left many victims of our states recent wildfires confused and upset congressman Douglas Malfa is a Republican representing Butte county parts of which were devastated by November's campfire. I spoke with him by phone from Washington earlier to get his reaction. Yeah. I think the president is annoyed that it's really hard to do the type of forest management land managed with we need to do. In this country, and especially in California with its onerous regulations. I live in what's a pretty heavily forested area. And a large part of my district that they've always been trying to have better us of policies. We see the resulting wildfires. We have every year quarter million acres at a time and even more that wine country area. So I share that frustration, but the tweet was really had a misdirected and talking about, you know, FEMA funding for wildfire victims, so I kinda rolled my eyes. And here we go on the street business here. But that said, you know, the president did come visit my district there paradises. Just fifteen miles from where I live. And so I know he's committed to helping the wildfire victims there. Well, what do you think the motivation is is it about essentially, sending a signal to our new governor Gavin Newsom? The craziest thing is that the president and governor Jerry Brown all three were joined us up there in paradise a few weeks ago know, we had leader Kevin McCarthy. Subcommittee. Chairman Ken Calvert myself from the house that were there during the site. So you know, it look like there was some level of get along there. But I went to Gavin Newsom inauguration day. Do you spend about a third of the speech bashing the White House and Trump in Washington DC? So, you know, something whatever California values he's talking about. Now, should the president respond to this was tweets like that? Now that doesn't help. But you know, when this this this this brakebast between DC and Sacramento all the time doesn't help anybody get a darn thing done. Well, is there any indication that this is having an actual impact on people in Butte county yet because there's a lot of confusion up there about what this means is this an actionable tweet. I don't think actual tweet at all. I think it's dancing. So we we meet we contacted our folks, we know what the White House as well as over Sima. No official action has been made to stop funding. I think it was just a random rant. And so, you know, we'll leave it at that. All right. Congressman Douglas Malfa is a Republican representing the north state, including view county. Thank you so much for your time. One of the few.

Let's head down south now where Los Angeles unified teachers were preparing for a strike today. One that would have affected six hundred thousand students teachers want more money and smaller class sizes are Johnson show reports from LA. Teachers across the country have been striking for better conditions since last year, these teachers you hear from West Virginia. They're successful strike in Appalachia has rippled into a movement that could crescendo here in Los Angeles. But hold on stop drop. Because the teachers are going to open up shop or their English classes or AP traeger, whatever you get the point that's because on Wednesday teachers decided to postpone the strike until after the weekend. This strike action. That's been postponed gives the two sides a weekend to find a way to come together. But there are big gulfs between the two sides not just on pay and class size. But also an increase in mental health professionals, therapists, essentially who can deal with problems like mass school shootings opioid addiction and other social ills that are now found in today's public schools for the California report.

"Governor Jerry Brown created a sanctuary state. California. It's why so many illegals come there. But when there's a problem he blames is not his policies of killing him is was in the country illegally. The senate's. Let's county sheriff has come out pretty critical of the sanctuary state policies that you signed into law in two thousand seventeen what do you make that criticism? And do you think that perhaps a side effect of those laws is that more bad actors might fall through the cracks? No, I don't think. So I understand the sheriff. I know him very well is a very good man is tragedy is terrible. But in this case, the individual had been rested actually, convicted twice of driving under the influence, and there was a warrant for his arrest. And no one picked him up, and he was arrested and brought into jail before the sanctuary law was even enacted so ice immigration people could have gone out and get gotten him the police or the sheriff could've told the immigration service. And besides so this this is something that could happen in the future. But it didn't happen in this particular case. But they don't work with ice. They don't alert is they don't put holds on the guys they'll release them before. I can get there. Is truly sick that he would say this. Callous, even.

Would stifle investment which would kill job growth. It would actually hurt poor people and working class people. If you increase the income tax on high earners on the margins above a million a year, or whatever you want to do that. People will keep their money parked.
