"Later and we really did not have the resources in place. We were too big, we didn't have the infrastructure in place. By the time of newtown, we had sort of lost our infrastructure. We were building it up after the million mom march. And then when we, one of our board members was deep conversations with Michael Barnes, who was president Brady at the time and Michael was very involved with Muslims and drunk driving when he was a congressman. So he really liked the whole concept of giving Brady this grassroots arm, these chapters and at the time we had about 236 chapters when we merged. So that is when we kind of became an organization and we had policy people on board, political people on board, development people on board. So we sort of became a national office and the bell campaign chapters now called me my march chapter sort of merged into Brady. You know, we needed them and they needed us. We had already been the grassroots force behind some bills that were getting passed, governor pataki, working with New Yorkers against gun violence, was working to package gun reform bills, and he was Republican and when we came along, he was so thrilled because he was just constantly hearing from the other side. So we started to see bills getting passed and we knew we had something to do with it. We were working with great organizations, and I think in the vein of talking about how this legacy continues. I'm wondering if maybe each of you can highlight some victories that came after the initial million on March that our listeners might not know about. I mean, we're talking about 20 years of history here. Yeah, I mean, removing Spence Abraham from office was I think one of the most exciting things and incumbent and putting Debbie stabenow in place at a time when we needed that voice. It was pretty exciting. And I think soon after that, that Christmas I'll never forget the Michigan legislature passing in the middle of the night a bill that would turn CCW into a shall issue state as opposed to a maze, you stay..

"Good morning New York This is the early edition of the taxman table try and catch the TVs here We get a earlier Sunday morning to let you know what's ahead is going on with us today is JP Miller from the empire report New York dot com We have Brian zagan from New Jersey Frank Miranda from the great island of Staten Island and martavius Roberts from mess or county Good morning guys Let's go first to JP Miller JP what's the hot news of the day Good morning John on empire port New York dot com this morning we have the trifecta New York Daily News New York Times New York Post all have on the front page district of Manhattan district attorney Alvin Bragg is under fire He's forced to defend his criminal justice reforms yesterday after NYPD unions and the city's police commissioner newly appointed police commissioner charged that his approach to what he deems minor crimes threatens the safety of officers and the public That's what people are talking about this morning John Now I think that is the big story of the day the big story of the week everybody is as mad as hell and they can't take it anymore because this is ridiculous I mean we want to precinct tranquility I don't know if you guys heard my Thing I put out about public safety and in New York Let's talk Frank Moreno I understand your DA put out an op-ed piece That's right DA Michael McMahon whose Democrat and not considered a conservative by any means wrote an op-ed for the New York Post detailing how unhappy he is with what Manhattan is doing and how Staten Island will not do that They basically he put out an op-ed saying Staten Island's going to continue to fully prosecute crimes on the merits of each case and they will never institute blanket policies which disregard the laws that are set up by the legislature Now on the one hand I'm employing Mike McMahon for saying that but on the other I'm thinking how sad is that that this is news It used to be just expected that all of the DAs would prosecute the law as it is not as they wish it was And that's the real problem with what Alvin brag is doing here is he took an oath to uphold the constitution of the state of New York and he's choosing to essentially disregard a whole series of crimes Well on the tax at night show here today we had governor pataki and he was the governor and governor Paterson and they both said as governors the governors if a DA does not follow the law or doesn't prosecute the law in New York State then the governors have the right to remove them or set them aside or something like that Do you think you can get enough votes to recall them or is it the you pick hope of has the courage to do that I actually don't For starters Bragg won overwhelmingly in the Manhattan democratic primary which huckle needs a lot of votes from Manhattan for her own primary in June 2 Bragg and the two candidates that finished behind him they made no bones about this back in June that this was going to be their agenda You hosted a forum on this subject and Brett and then you did a series of one on one interviews with Bragg and he was very brazen saying look this is what he's going to do and the voters embraced this unfortunately in Manhattan I think it really calls the question Now that's true But you pressed him I went back and listened to him You're old interviews You pressed him on prosecuting gun crimes And you said well look you're going to prosecute crimes right And Bragg tip joed like crazy and said oh we have to see what happens and what the circumstances are I mean to me not somebody that has any interest in putting bad guys in jail This is somebody that has an interest in being known as a progressive prosecutor like the one that's in San Francisco And he wants to let as many people out as possible The fact that he didn't just institute this policy quietly that he did it in a broad memo and made a big splash with this Shows you that he wants to be known for this This is not something he's ashamed of at all He is Roberts What do you say on your end I'm glad you came to me because I'm a lay it out like this When I looked at that ten page manifesto and I looked at what he was actually saying Basically this is what he was saying and I don't have a problem with his approach to governing or defending the law in this state Basically what he was saying unless certain crimes are attached to a felony He's not going to go after him And I'm going to tell you some of those things Things like marijuana He's not going to go after that Uh fair invasion Trespassing Aggravated unlicensed operation Traffic infraction resisting arrest obstructing governmental administration in the second degree and prostitution Those are some of the things that he was like you know what I'm not going really go after that So everybody who's becoming an alarmist about he's going to allow the criminals to take over the city The types of crimes that he's saying he's not going to really prosecute or hit hard unless they're part of a felony Are things that we're relaxed on anyway Nobody really cares about taking out prostitution or marijuana and all that other stuff I read about Nobody's really concerned about that We're concerned about the violet crimes And I still think he's going to be telephoned at I don't think he's going to be solved on that and let violent criminals roam the streets and do whatever they want to He was talking about nonviolent infractions So that's my opinion Well you know one of the examples we gave and maybe Frank can correct me if I'm wrong is if you go into a store take a gun put it to the guy's head and said give me all your money And the police walked in and a rescue which had gone at the guy's head You haven't fired the gun they give you a disappearance ticket Instead of a restaurant no I don't think you're incorrect at all John And to add some merch avius list of crimes there he's essentially not going to be seeking prison terms for people that commit armed robbery unless it's tied to something bigger Now I mean how can you say armed robbery is not a violent crime In my view it certainly is But it shouldn't be oh I think this crime is bad You think this crime is bad This is the law If you want to change the law run for the state legislature and push to amend it But this insidious way of just not prosecuting laws that you don't agree with to me that is historically never been the role of the DA and I'm concerned it sets up a dangerous precedent You Bill Bratton Rudy Giuliani and others have talked about the push that people like George Soros are making to elect DAs all around the country If Bragg is successful with this DBC movement in Manhattan I fear that you might see a whole bunch of brags in 50 states around the country I understand there's 26 of them in the country already and they're all funded by George Soros That's what I heard And it's very sad and I'm.

"Also Governor George Pataki, who was governor at the time, and all the media was covering it because it was this magical and very important moment of all of them coming together, And here is Governor Pataki. Talking about what he witnessed that day 20 years ago. When I went down to ground zero that morning, uh, to try to help and see with my own eyes what was happening? I saw a New Yorkers. Yes, there were those were told to leave Lower Manhattan. But I saw hundreds of New Yorkers rushing to ground zero not knowing whether we would be attacked, again prepared to risk their lives to try to help save their fellow New Yorkers, their fellow human beings. I'm proud of our leadership and what we all did together, but I'm incredibly proud of the people and how they responded on that awful

"To have you along for the ride. Thanks for stopping by. Really appreciate having my friend America's mayor, the incomparable the wonderful Rudy Giuliani on the day before the anniversary of the attacks of 9 11, Rudy, Thanks a million for coming on today. Busy. You are could not be on your on your show. Pack your your You're just a real patriot of saving this country By what you're doing. You have no idea. I mean, you're getting out information that in the censorship that we have now people just wouldn't get And thank you. Well, Rudy, thank you for continuing to come on. Of course, you know, I was banned by by YouTube and everybody else because I talk to you as much as I do, but I don't care. We have to get this. It's like me. It's like being in Berlin. It is. No it really is. Let me ask you something. We talked about this a couple of weeks ago, but that morning, and I don't think I've ever asked you this before. I'm not sure if anybody did else has. Honestly, if you look at it, you and Bernie and others probably should not have made it that day. How? How did you survive the attacks of 9 11? And what was it inside of you? That said, I don't care if more attacks were coming. I've got to go out lead the people, but honestly, Rudy, I think it's a miracle that you survived. How did you physically survived that day? It is. I was just with Governor Pataki and my deputy mayor, Rudy Washington, who for 30 minutes. They thought I was killed because we were trapped in a building and the governor was ready to sign an order to take over the city because he didn't want Mark Green to run it. Who would have been, you know, kind of like button right? And, uh And then when I called the governor, he was very He was very happy that I was alive. And, uh then we we were joined, but by that we're joined together like Twins. Yeah. Three months. In contrast. To what Cuomo and de Blasio did to the city by fighting with each other. Constantly getting people killed. Well, Wolf physically and Rudy Giuliani, America's mayor, Of course, he brought us together after 9 11. How did you physically survive? You were right there, weren't you? Were you in Lower Manhattan right when it happened? Yeah. I was trapped in a building. My building got hit by the building that came down it. Actually, I was about ready to talk to the Vice President Vice President Cheney. I have spoken to Chris Henick. He had told me that We had a recover not to worry about the airplane hitting our buildings anymore. But to worry about secondary attacks, right, meaning this could this could be a signal for all of these different cells to start hitting us. So I dispatched the police with Bernie Kerik to all the places that we thought were priority targets. And then I got a call from the White House from the vice president. Before he got on the phone. The phone went out. The building started to shake. It was like a It was like a hurt like an earthquake. Right? Everybody went under the tables. And the next thing I saw was big black smoke outside. And people getting hit by debris. And then we were trapped in that building. We couldn't get out. We tried downstairs and we were concerned the building might collapse. I had 40 people with me, including the Three highest ranking people in the police department. Uh, several, my deputy mayor, I had a lot of the core people that ran New York City and I strangely instead of being afraid I was worried that I'd lose. That it was all these people. Wow. I didn't know I didn't know the danger we were in until I went home at night and watch it on television. We know the communications governor, the governor, So I thought you were. I thought you were crushed in the building. You did we all we all thought we all wondered, Where is Rudy? And thank God you survived. And I think that it was a godsend. Because you were the only guy who could have led us through the You did the will of God. I mean, If the building had fallen slightly the other way. I wouldn't be here now, Man. Most of the communication was knocked out New York City because all the antennas were on top of the World Trade Center separate WCBS, I think was on the Empire State Building. And so they stayed on the air. Did you have cell service? Were you able to call me and when? When the attack happened when? When communication died. Could you sporadic? So one of my first One of my first, uh, decisions was I told the police commissioner to get an office and hook us up to right near the site, Get an office and hook us up the hard lines. You know, we used to have those then. Yeah, and he did, and I was able to get through the White House. And find out about the attack on the Pentagon. The 7 to 12 planes. Uh, the fact that the Pentagon had had been hit and there were other rumors, too, about the shears tower. Those were dispelled and then I was told we have evacuated the president. And I knew what that meant because I worked in the Reagan administration. That meant that that somebody had made the decision a very high level. The touch is going to be attacked right and they put the president up in the air, and the criticism of George Bush is totally unfair. Because he had nothing else he could do, but to get on that airplane, right? That's what we do to preserve our president at the time of attack, and as soon as he could get down. As far as he could get down,.

"Villainize is the tops, victimizes the thugs, you know, between the lawsuit and public statements and you know Never seen a magician. James is supposed to be the chief law enforcement officer for the state of New York. Yet she has she has absolutely no support. No respect to the NYPD, which is kind of odd it Z. I don't know It's we live in a really Really strange world these days. It is, s so it Z all kind of odd to me 20 years ago, this would not have happened under under marry Oh, Cuomo or Governor Pataki. This would not have happened. No. And of course it is. I don't know. I don't know. I don't know what's going on. It hurts the people.

B C. The The Enemy of My Enemy is my friend We hate Andrew Cuomo. Leticia James, The attorney general, put out this memo. Over this statement yesterday that Governor Cuomo undercounted the deaths in the nursing homes. I mean, that was, you know, she's Democrat. He's a Democrat s o. We like that. The fact that they're calling him out because we knew he was under counting them already. At least she did that. Well, I think you know the current destination. Her report on is it's a catalyst for the FBI and the federal government. Sentimental, okay? I mean, this you're talking about thousands of deaths. That is, you know, based on reports, Governor Cuomo was responsible for ordering these people back into these homes. Um I have to say, Where's the federal government? Where is the FBI? Where's the U. S health agencies? Why aren't they looking at this? And I think I think the Attorney General's report at this point. Should be at least enough to grab, grab some attention or focusing attention on on Governor Cuomo and have somebody come in and look at what he did. Um, it's just, you know, based on her report, based on other reports. I think it should be looked at it the federal level Absolutely All right, Bernie. Great job is always will be listening at two o'clock tomorrow afternoon. You keep talking. Keep showing up here and all the best party. Carrick. Thank you. All right, guys. Thank you.

"Me, they look a qualm on there like God, there's a leader I am. You know, Governor Cuomo and taking some of these steps that they already have unlimited capacity. I mean, I'm so turned on by him. Governor Cuomo's joining us now. His new book, by the Way, is entitled American Crisis Leadership Lessons from the Coded 19 pandemic. I hope you are able to appreciate what you did in your state and what it means for the rest of the country. Now I'm wowed by what you did. More importantly, I'm wild by how you did it. Yeah, well, I would say anybody turned on the turns on joy blow hard. You should run flee into the night away from No. Here's Here's the kicker. When asked former Governor Pataki had this to say about over Cuomo. This is a new low for months, legislators everyone's been trying to get those numbers from the governor's office and made this stone wall and then we know why on the reason is because they were misrepresenting it from the beginning. I know I know a little bit about leading in a crisis and you want to do two things. You want to make the right decisions or you make a decision that You question that you change it quickly, And the second thing is you wanna communicate honestly, with people on both of those friends. The whole administration has failed miserably. They make the wrong decision on nursing homes. They refused to collect it corrected when it was pointed out, And now it appears they lied to the people of New York about what those consequences actually work. This is inexcusable. Absolutely inexcusable. Finally, some honesty out of the state of New York the rest of you guys get back on the clown car. Pataki, you could hang around for a while, you know? Him, and the attorney general is.

"Jon Katz was PC and we are joined by Kevin McCullough and Lydia. Throught. I little run. I Why do I have that? Well, Lydia, what do you news goes on joining us also in the studios, Rob Cole and on the phone. We have former governor of New York Governor Pataki. Robert. You introduced the governor. Hey, Governor, How are you? Good. Very well. Thank you. How's everything doing in the epidemic? Great. Be completed as dialed. Think we lost the governor? Is he there? I'm still here, okay? We have little background music, but I'm here, but that's fine. We got a little snow up in the Adirondacks, but that's to be expected in December. We got some dusting here today, Governor. It wasn't much, but it was. It was just enough to make the little McCullough kids go. Oh, wait. This really is Christmas. Your white Christmas? Yeah, they were. They got their hopes up. If it helps get you in the Christmas spirit, and given the way this year is gone. We need all the help we can get. Governor. A couple of interesting stories are breaking this afternoon, Leticia James's leading 48 states into the courtroom to take on Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram. I think they're looking to bust him up on bake them small again. I'm just curious your thoughts on such a big action by you know, the current attorney general. I think it's the right thing to do. I think we've just seen monopolies created with Google and Facebook and Twitter, and they're important players in the national debate, but they're not accountable to anyone except themselves. And I think we saw in the last campaign censorship on one side. That was extremely unfair. So I think the idea Of bringing an action to break them up is positive. You know, Kevin, I think you also said they were like 48 Attorney General's, which means Republicans and Democrats working together and that's the way it should be. So we tracked down the worst story. What happened today? Well, you go ahead. Today. They announced that YouTube announced and Facebook announced That anything that says the word fraud in real relation to the election. You're gonna take it off the Internet. Yeah, I mean, it's just It's just outrageous that you can't have a political die like you can only have a monologue from one side. Andre. I think this action is long overdue. I hope it succeeds, and I think you have to have competition. I don't trust government. To decide what they should be able to say or not say. But I do think if you have a competitive climate where there are four or five alternatives, the one that treats people the fairest will ultimately succeed. But right now we don't have that so I'm really happy to hear this. I hope they succeed. We need to break up these monopolies that are censoring half of the American electorate. Should we also remove rule? 2 30 is quickly as possible. Yes, You know, I agree with President Trump on that I don't think he should be tell the defense appropriation act over it. That's just too important and Bill And I know the president feels it might not get then otherwise, but I think that would be a mistake. But I do think that Congress should retail will to 30 And I think you know the idea that Facebook whenever there's a competitive, they buy it Google whenever there's a competitive, they buy it. It just shuts down competition and allows these monopolies Theo dictate what the American people are allowed to hear and say, And that's not right. Governor Pataki, This is Lydia Ceron. I we actually met on election night I had interviewed you and I remember something You said it was very poignant and it stuck with me. You said If Donald Trump wins the election, it will be in spite of the media. And here we have now Leticia James. Finally, the attorney general, is it too little too late that she she's going after Facebook after everything they did to slant the election for the Democrats. Well, they definitely planted the election. There's no question about it. I mean the whole censorship of the New York Post. They refused to run anything about Hunter Biden and still refused to run anything about it. I think really did impact the election. Uh, but I think better late than never let it get to be honest. And, uh, it's not gonna impact obviously what happened on November 3rd. But it can impact the next election. So, uh, I hope I helped their successful. I hope these monopolies are broken up and we do have Competitive dialogue where both sides can be heard. Hey, governor, it's Rob. Just wanna ask you a quick question about what do you think of Governor Cuomo's handling of the budget and what's actually going on in Albany with the closures and Staten Island and the way he's been Kind of acting in the last couple of weeks. I'll tell you, Rob. I just don't understand what's going on with the budget. We had a over $6 billion deficit before the covert crisis hit on. That's after the longest economic expansion in American history. And since that time, I haven't seen anything other than people leaving New York and business is being shut down. And I think the governor is just waiting for a Massive bailout from Washington that may or may not happen, And that's not the way you run a steak. You have to operate. It was what What resource is you have and deal with them Affectively and I think also, you know, we were told back in August that It was a book from a governor talking about New York had defeated the virus, and now we're talking about shutdowns, which seems to me a little inconsistent. Perhaps that book should be retracted. Either that or we should take another look at these shots that that's like the victory lap being run in the fifth inning or something that Zach was a wake up in the fifth inning and since the since then the other Team has managed it sadly had a couple of Grand Grand Slams and in this case with tragic results for New York, but Knowledge. We keep hearing how things are based on science, and then it turns out they're not. It's arbitrary and it's just very discouraging. And you know, rob we hear about shut. That's Have you heard one thing about this governor, saying we need to help small businesses. We need to do something because they're hurting their employees are hurting their their landlords are not getting rents. I have not heard one word about saying You know, we understand the suffering that these shutdowns have cause you were going to propose a multi prime plant. Help you get through this. Nothing. I have not heard of thing..

Well as a church was established. I think we're on 1917 18, but it was a Actually agree, Coffeehouse we even before that the great community, a member of the great community bought it around 18 94. And what was occurring. The people would gather there when they come off of Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty For their hopes and their dreams, and they would go to this coffeehouse and gather And then what happened? They decided to stay and Grated community and they were getting married. I'd go back to Greece and bring it right in or they found a bride here in this country. On the natural thing is we got to get married. Where? In the church? We gotta have Children baptize where? In a church. So therefore then say Nicholas came about. I believe it was 1917. Michael would know that number more, but it was magnificent location. A day. That time. It was not magnificent, but when, of course, they redid the World Trade Center down there became A hub of activity and the Life Force of Wall Street, of course, and it's a 1 55 seater. And that day a 9 11. I'm a Port Authority police chaplain, So we were called in. To be with with the police and to try to Conference 37. People in the Port Authority lost their lives that day. And it was very, very painful, but the great community was a very vibrant one. It was an old calendar church. My father celebrated liturgy there when he was a young man, and I was an altar boy in ST Nicholas. So when I came to the Earth sciences in the seventies and eighties, I would always go celebrate services. There It was, when we met was a very small church insignificant. It was significant to the Wall Street people, no matter what. Of what faith Catholics, Protestants, Buddhists, Muslims, Hindus, Everybody would go to this little church, The light a candle. Because it was right next to the World Trade Center like ST Paul's Church eyes all over. They're the men, so they they would go. But that little church It was open all the time to everyone. And, uh, of course. What happened when it we the house of worship was destroyed. Governor Pataki at that time, uh, told us that we would be allowed to rebuild. It was a very significant Decision by Governor Pataki on we went through a little bit of difficulty in the force of this with Archbishop Demetrios and Michael Jazz and others. And then finally, Governor Andrew Cuomo. I made a big commitment and said, Definitely, we're going to rebuild at ground zero. We have gone through some litigation and we went through some difficulties. But the friends of Saint Nicholas Championed by Michael Sato's Dennis Meal. Dennis is the chairman Michael's a vice chairman John catching the TVs, the Archdiocese Council vice chairman. We got together with the governor and everybody committed and we we are completing an $86 million shrine, which should not be for the Greek Orthodox community alone. But for America, people of all states looking for comfort and hope. I mean, it really goes way back. I mean, even 18, 94 and 1917 and really, what a beautiful foundation. The Greek people of Greek heritage left for us in terms of bringing their faith here, right here in the center of New York City, But this country was founded on faith as we well know, we just celebrated Thanksgiving. The Pilgrim's was very important. They came here for religious freedom. Those people that left the Ottoman countries at that time they were slaves in their own land. They decided to come to America to breathe free. To see the hopes of the promise of America just like the Irish just like the time and just like the Polish the Germans. We came to this country and so this church Even though it was destroyed at ground zero and was the Greek Orthodox Church. It's being resurrected into a shrine for people that are still looking for hope so People looking for justice, and it's an opportunity to be a light on the hill. And that's why Santiago College drop of the great architect was called on this to do this. And the friends of Saint Nicholas. Who are very hardworking people, very successful people, generous people, but what they are is passionate about their faith and their passionate about America. This is for us. An American national try. Absolutely. It was a pillar of peace for so many, and I love the hope in the joint that we're all gonna see when, when, when it's rebuilt. And when it's finished, I'm curious, though I know there was incredible devastation and obviously was the only religious institution that was lost in 9 11. But was there anything that survived the devastation within the church? Was there anything at all that was left? Well, Basically, there was a safe that had all of these pressures for relics in there. That was totally polarized. We can't find it still. What we did find was a couple of books. There was a paper icon of Saint Joan issues. Where we had all of these magnificent rally X and icons made of wonderful wood and paint that did not survive. There was a bell that was crushed. There was a couple of candles that survived it. Couple of candle stands nothing much, but they are part of what we will when we have put the Saint Nicholas back together again. It will be part of the legacy of Saint Nicholas indeed, but we It was you would. It was unbelievable just to go down there to see there was nothing there one way..

"So the ceremony's today were because of Copan 19. They said. We're totally different. They had the reading of the names of the victims at the World Trade Center. But it wasn't in person. It was recorded. I guess from last year, I mean, the names have been changed, though they just use a recording. So Frank Siller, whose brother Became famous because he ran from Brooklyn. Through the tunnel that comes out right by the West Side Highway, right by where the World Trade Center is, it literally ran to the fire. And so every year Frank Siller has AH fundraiser he's raised millions of dollars. Of an annual run from Brooklyn to world trade. And So he decided? No, we're going to read him live. So he set up a separate event. Over on the corner of Church and Liberty, which is essentially about a half a block away from where the World Trade Center was mean Time. The World Trade Center Memorial Plaza is like a block and a half because it's past the other side of where the trade tower it was. So they were only a couple blocks away from each other. At the Memorial Plaza. Vice president. Pence was there. Governor Cuomo, Senator Schumer. Mike Bloomberg, the mayor de Blasio, the former governor Pataki. They were all there. And so wass. Ah! Joe Biden and Joe Biden and Mike Pence said hello to each other, and they bumped elbows. Talk for a little bit, too. Men who held the vice presidency. Then Pence and his wife went over to the alternative site set up by Stephen Sewer. And they don't allow politicians to speak. On this day, but they invited Pence and his wife and they read from the Bible. Read Psalm. 23 was one of the readings, so is almost like a church service. And then Joe Biden went up to Shanksville, Pennsylvania. President Trump went there this morning. A couple of hours later, Joe Biden showed up. They didn't so they would not run into each other, and that was smart, so it did not distract from the events in Shanksville. So it was. It wasn't in the event. Over at the Memorial Plaza. Um Wasn't a lot of social distancing, but every body I did not see a soul. Without a mask, But it's New York. Everybody was wearing a mask everybody, but they weren't very far apart up in Shanksville. They set up the chairs so that they were socially distanced. Somewhere, worry Mass. But they're out in a big open field. I guess they felt they didn't need to. And then at the Pentagon today. Like a handful. Of people. They basically had the memorial there. The Pentagon closed. So there were I'm going to say 20 people. Military people. Defense Secretary Mark Esper. And some others. So that was it from from the ceremonies today. Back to CNN hears The rest of the story. As the second plane flies into the second tower. There was another one. We just saw Wei just saw another one way. Just saw another one apparently go. Another plane just.

"If it happens, I'll tell you what's going to happen. We're going to have to roll back the opening plan, and we're gonna have to close bars and restaurants about He's about the closed boys and rice once the hell does he think he's in charge when you is collecting a paycheck? George. He's talking about bars and restaurants who are so desperate and a lot of them, by the way, not that it matters. But in this day and age of identity politics, minority owned businesses you're talking about on Steinway Street, the businesses around Yankee Stadium for exams Queens, too, and the washing in the Bronx and in Inwood, where all these things were happening. It might are minority owned businesses. And these people that are out there the ones that were on Steinway Street. I saw the videos. They looked like people of color to me. I know they're closing down the boardwalk in Long Beach. I told you about that. Last night, I stole the reporters there reporting on they got home. A look at the news that closing the boardwalk at nine o'clock now because ah bunch of black kids came down on Saturday night to enjoy the sunset. I got liquored up and they got a little out of hand. But they went pro testing that robbing anybody. This is a racist policy. If I can invoke that, like love, try to smear this this fascist creep. Well, somebody did smear him as it continues to beat his chest and feel really good about himself and again being invited to other states to kind of School them on how to handle the virus. There was a former governor who actually did a great job for this state and on the most tragic day in American history, no disrespect to parole harbor but dating back to 9 11 2001 Governor Pataki, a good friend of ours, and just a couple of days ago on Fox News with Melissa Francis, the formal house on the Prairie star. He he talked about New York and just how dire it is. I just really feel that New York is in dire straits on. Certainly part of it is the Corona virus that has had a huge impact on New York and changed the way people work and that's going to hurt New York. Also, it's the political leadership that is failing miserably. It's almost as though they're doing things intentionally damaged future of New York and not really, really concerned more so than at any point in my life, I would say to Pataki, it's not almost as though it is exactly what they're doing intentionally. It is political. And they don't care about these individuals of the people who again the businesses all the citizens or the city itself. The city It's just it's it's on life. Support is what it is and the doctor back to Dr Fawlty. He sees things through when he says that they did things right in New York. He sees things through the prism of a doctor, an epidemiologist. He's not looking at the business is that we're talking about all the streets of Manhattan or the crime by the way, that's partially due to the lock down the pandemic in addition to the rights, but all of these things put together Found. She had to say that Cuomo was doing a good job. You just heard Pataki. The place is in shambles and heads the worst. That rate in the world. This state has the worst death rate in the world. Forget about the country, the world. I don't need a taxi to Tommy, that I live and work in New York City. I don't leave. You know, you get a chance to go back to Long Island and another folks at the station, they go back to Brooklyn. I live in New York City. I don't leave it. It is a very depressing place. It's a very depressing place. Can you imagine to the what's going on in the outer boroughs? And some of these hoods? Apple must be in the police just not not policing because, understandably disaster horrible and buddy. It's every man for himself basically. We'll look for what it's worth. President Trump now has kind of come back to the Corona virus being the main thing. He was kind of. I don't want to say he put the virus aside, but he certainly did make an important cause to get the economy going again, which I thought was right and important at the time, But now he's kind of knows wearing the mask out there in public and Today. Of course, President Trump brings back I would daily briefings. He was asked why he was going to do that. Here's President. Trump was back on television today, so I think what we're going to do is get involved and will start doing briefings. And I think it's a great way to get information after the public as to where we are with the vaccines with therapeutics and generally speaking when we are so the whole crew is back, right, Bernie, my pens, the whole gang. Everybody's back, but they're going to be more succinct. A little less of President Trump a little more of some of the officials and Mike Pence from what I understand, and Ah, hopefully prayerfully no bickering with the punks in the media that is sitting there asking Gotcha. Questions. 1 808 for eight W A. B C 1 808 for 8 92 22 Plenty of phone calls. I'm gonna hit the phones. Yet today. Plus we have more stories and more opinions.

I remember I started out and key opened for me. She was very pleasant than she was very funny and very nice now, they when they talk about the Russia collusion. You know? What's scary? This serious this serious. It's like the Russian they still stay the Russian the Russian that Donald Trump, and you and I look at these people Jerrold Nadler and Adam ship until next been quiet lately, maybe got a raise so and then end joy bale, watching all the progressive socialists in your jaw dropped when they start with Russia and Donald Trump, and like Donald Trump's been harder on Russian than any other president, you know since Ronald Reagan. But there's nothing there. They can't let it go. And it sounds like a mental illness. It really sounds like a mental illness, and it's not an I keep telling you, and I only know for being on the show at the guests that we have on this program. It's a learning process. For me. And I'm proud to be behind the microphone. It's China that you worry about oh, North Korean lobbying another missile, you know, over into the East Sea. It's an that comes from China North Korea Kim Jong owned by China. That's what you gotta worry about the tax. It's China an anonymous they with such such amazement how a good China is at a doing doing these these things that are covert that we have to continually stay on Russia is a minor player in all of this all of this goodness, gracious me, and they won't stop with it. And I don't and then I need the governor Pataki said something that was very interesting last night. Saying that no matter what happens. If once we start investigating the investigated will the press cover it, and it was very oxidation by the government. It will the press cover because once you see when they unleash everything. And of those of those advisor warrants everything everything's opened up, and the president opens up everything will the press coverage because that is the problem they they continue with that that knowing narrative about the Russians that so old that it so beat, but they won't let it go. Then you and I that we have to just not only stay on our game. We have to get others to just join us. So these people don't get to govern from what can Bernie Bernie's not more energy on the road than Joe Biden Bernie Sanders had and I'm looking at the crowds campgrounds. You don't hear about it anywhere? Would of this foreign born people six hundred people at these binding events and say, Joe Biden, his numbers are going up. What Bernie rally, and then you? Really want to bury them all watch the rally in Panama City last night with the president of the United States that it's and it's getting to me, stronger, more patriotic and more people showing up, but you can't you have to show up at the polls. Otherwise eating to get Bernie Sanders and trust me listen to this AO see as vice president. You think I'm kidding Alexandria, Agasi of Cortez as the vice presidential candidate that flash that horror flick to white for a second this morning as I was watching the dude at I'm watching everything prepping for the show and St. on Bernie ever did that Bernie Sanders and AOL see all what a dream team socialist dean that would be I mean, and you know, what's scary. If we don't stay vigilant. And we don't just dismiss that. All we got this the president's gonna win twenty if we don't get people who have not registered to vote and really add onto everybody, you know, like, whether no matter what you are the independence have to show up in this election. If we're going to not allow the socialists to take over Bernie theme is the nail seat. Can you imagine that might I'm telling you anything can happen? And we have to stay on our game. A right.

"governor pataki" Discussed on WNYC 93.9 FM

"And joins a political consulting firm and let let's go over some of the memorable stories that you mentioned in your farewell column. The first one was governor Eliot Spitzer's sudden resignation in two thousand eight after getting caught up in a high priced call girl scandal, and you know, as I was thinking about that. And being reminded of it by you. I was thinking about Trump and the scandalous hush money payments to count McDougal and stormy Daniels, and none of his voters seem to care. So do you look back and think governor Spitzer who is elected by a very wide margin? After Democrats New York state were so sick of twelve years of Republican governor Pataki, do you think maybe governor Spitzer could have survived that scandal after a few really bad news cycle. You know, I don't for one reason he didn't have the support in the legislature. He had alienated the democrat so much over the fight over who would replace Alan Hevesi is controller he went into their districts, and and rip them as puppets. I'm Shelly silver in the assembly. So you know, when it was ending for him. He did go to shell sober and say, do you think I could survive a battle and sober said, I don't think the support is there. So now in that regard. He reaped what he sowed because the legislature wasn't there for them. Now had he had a better relationship. I think even back then he could've probably survived it note that one of the most persistent Albany stories has been the stream of criminal corruption charges to Republican Senate majority leader's job, Bruno and galas, though, Bruno's conviction was later overturned democratic assembly speaker, Sheldon silver, democratic state controller, Alan Hevesi. You broke the story. The cuomo. Is interfering with an anti-corruption commission that he created a few years ago and so much more. Do you think they look state government is especially corrupt institution or more that there are always some bad apples in state government? And we remember the ones in our own backyard in Albany, and there are similar stories being written by the Ken Lovett's of Iowa in California and Texas and everywhere else in jersey, that's always had a reputation. I think New York has had a lax oversight is it the most corrupt the second most corrupt the fiftieth corrupt. I, you know, I don't know. 'cause I don't cover those other states. But I do know that a lack of oversight a lack of even seeming caring on the part of the legislature and the governor's over the years. They've kinda shrug off these scandals, and and the more and more they they've occurred. The public is seeming the shrugged it off. I always give the stat. That in twenty four teen three sitting state lawmakers any sitting congressmen all under indictment ran for reelection all four of them won reelection and ended up leaving office early because they were convicted years ago, especially when I first started an indictment was disqualifying factor. But now the public is just kinda tuned it out and more of a tune it out the more these there's no repercussions to this. So then what what is the pressure to change things? You also say what you call it nauseating amount of sexual harassment of you scandals that are only now starting to be taken seriously attorney general Eric Schneiderman sexual violence is one very high profile, recent example, and finally only last week real public hearings on the issue. You wrote that a glaring example of the mindset of some lawmakers came a few years ago when you lost a lot of weight, can you tell us. What happened then? And I went onto the Senate floor and a Republican Senator calls me over and he's still there. I'm not gonna name him. But he says can come here. We've been talking about about you lately said really what about what we think you dropped away because you have someone on the side, and I've been happily married a long time. And I just looked at him kind of stunned. And I said, you know, that sounds a lot more about you Senator than it says about me, and I know the piece, you know, a lot of people went through a lot of bad stuff. But this just showed to me the mindset of these people some of these people, let's take a call in the west village on WNYC with Ken Lovett juice on up. Well, let's try Janet. In Manhattan, Janet you there. Yes. I am things much for taking my call. My name's Janice Gallagher. I I'm Jay Gallagher's daughter covered New York state politics for a long time and Ken, thanks so much for for all your services. Great to hear you again. My question is kind of thinking about what my how my dad would see what all the teams going on nominee would be a section of Stewart cousins to power and all the changes we have in leadership are finally going to change. How many things are they finally going to clean up their act or how much is it going to be the same business as usual? Well, first of all, I love your father, as you know, although he was a Red Sox fan, but I will. Change that remains to be seen Spitzer came in. Everyone thought he was going to be a white Knight. And, you know, his whole campaign theme was on everything, you know, on day one everything changes and then day to it'll change back. So, you know, there is certainly hope there certainly more lawmakers talking about it, then I never seen before especially the younger newer lawmakers. Paul. They held a hearing on sexual harassment the other day, and and people were actually crying, but you know, people are human nature. So will there be corruption? Yeah, I'm sure there's gonna be more corruption. You know, how widespread it is that I I can't predict, but certainly the more it's written about the more people are speaking out about it. And the more new people are coming into the system who really lacked political experience, I think there they're more than they have a more of an attention of tackling it. So there is some hope there. Janice. Thank you so much Jonathan in midtown. You're on WNYC with Ken Lovett, how Jonathan Bryan and John and Ken very nice to talk to you. And thank you for taking my call. My question has to do with sort of the you. You guys mentioned that the Amazon deal on losing those jobs or something that may start a dialogue and a conversation about just the whole idea of these corporate tax incentives and subsidies and break. However, you want to call it is it something that you what has changed is. It just a cost you Cortez. I mean, the time this weekend had a an interesting column or maybe it was last week. They mentioned that Hollywood get six hundred million dollars a year in New York City to to shoot here, you know, and the line was funny to some of these things, you know, there's really think of Russian doll was going to be shot in Sacramento or something. And that means if my math is right? That means an in in five years Hollywood will have gotten what Amazon was gonna get thirty. And and so my question. Do you know, why haven't they? Those kinds of subsidies. You know, what's different Hollywood. They don't do it. You know? I know that's a big thing here in the city the, and I don't know about the state level. But certainly there there are subsidies that are given to lure filmmakers TV show makers to this coast rather than the other coast and not just this coast rather than the other coast. But also Canada, you know, before the subsidies went in a lot of these productions were taking place in Toronto and other cities in Canada our areas in Canada in Toronto fill in for New York City, look here, the Republicans for years legislative Republicans have made an issue of the film tax credit for the state level. I think it's four hundred twenty million a year. And you know, the governor has been a staunch defender of it. He's got a lot of money from it. But there are people who also say that, you know, the money goes to, you know, I think Saturday Night Live get some and no one really thinks Saturday Night Live after forty plus years is gonna move not gonna say live from Vancouver. British columbia. It's Saturday Night Live, right or or live from Ames Iowa or wherever. But, but, you know, so there are a lot of productions that are eligible for it that some people some eyebrows. But you know, the supporters of it say it does provide jobs, although they're not necessarily permanent jobs. So a lot of them. And it does it certainly has attracted, you know. Other other cities have have also a similar kind of incentives. So, you know, that's the argument that you know, you can't unilaterally disarm, and that's gonna be the argument with these tax incentives that if you don't do it other states. Well, that's why you're seeing some lawmakers pushing legislation with well makers from other states saying basically, everyone should agree to do it. But you know, as long as there are some who won't sign onto that it's going to be very difficult. We're talking with Ken Levitt who's leaving journalism after twenty five years of covering state politics in Albany. He's going to a political consulting firm. It's been the daily news bureau chief since two thousand eight or have that right? Yeah. Two thousand eight Albany bureau chief and has been on the show fifty times including today. So after twenty five years covering Albany. Is there one issue that jumps out at you is maybe the most stubborn or, you know, a problem that's most resistant to even Ernest political attempts to solve it. I mean, honestly, we talked about two of them the corruption. I mean sexual harassment. I think those have been prevalent since I got here, you know, Cuomo governor this governor Cuomo covered both this governor Cuomo came in, you know, in two thousand ten he announced his gubernatorial campaign in front of the tweet courthouse promising to clean up all buzney. And you could argue that, you know, Corruption-wise it got worse and that even included his own administration. So yeah, I think that's something that not only has kept going, but, but there's been a refusal to really seriously address it, you know, they've done various ethics reform packages in some regards. I agree with the governor who always says that no matter what laws are on the books. If you don't wanna follow them. You know, you're going to have people who won't do that. And and and who have criminal intent, but they really haven't. And and and when it came to sexual harassment. There was always a protecting institution rather than the. Victims kind of mentality and the worst. I saw was when Elizabeth Cruthers she was a legislative aide in the early two thousand she was raped by top counsel to then speaker assembly speaker, Sheldon silver, and when she went to speak to silver first of all silver publicly said well, investigate. But we think he's going to be exonerated, which that alone. But when she went and poured out what happened to her. He sat there and was eating pretzels on his desk. Quality listen to her very callously. And then you know, it ended up not going anywhere. And they both agree. Tammy investigation, both sides and two years later, boxers accused by another woman of raping her and was let out of the capitol and handcuffs, and we've seen that time and time again with Vito Lopez who was allowed, you know, there were there were secretive negotiations and settlements. And yet, you know, they didn't do anything to them. They didn't take away his committee. They didn't they didn't sanction him in any sort of way. And so. To protect the institution mentality that maybe starting to change. But a lot has to be seen before you can declare that Vito Lopez some people will remember it wasn't just a member of the assembly. He was so powerful as the Brooklyn Democratic Party leader. So many people wanted judgeships, and you know to get the nominations for other democratic races had to pay feel to feel free to him and all kinds of ways even while. He was was doing all that David on the upper east side, you're on WNYC with Ken Lovett. Hi, david. Good morning. Can I was interested in my first job was a copy boy at the daily news. We're talking back in the nineteen sixties. So I have a fun for the paper. But I've watched it shrink as as I've watched local news, shrink all over the country and particularly in New York. You're leaving seems to be almost a death blow to the paper. And I was wondering what your thoughts are on on tablet journalism. And where the news is going. I think print journalism. It's no secret. It's struggling. I mean, the internet has really when I got to the daily news, and you could say this about the post and most print papers right now with few exceptions with a few exceptions. Circulation dropped. I mean when I got there was over seven hundred thousand now it's less than two hundred thousand so that is a difficult situation. You know, there's still a lot of great reporters trying to do work, but with fewer and fewer resources and less staff. It does make it more difficult. The journalism world is changing. There's always going to be a need for journalists. There's always gonna be journalists. But how that shakes out because everyone thought it would be the online stuff, and even they're struggling now in certain cases. And a lot of cases, you're saying layoffs. So I don't know we I don't know if we know yet where it's heading fully. But it's a shame like even in my years at the capitol. You know, we've we've lost a seven or eight newspapers that used to from around New York state that used to cover the capital, and why that matters they've been replaced by online, you know, like, politico or or city and state, and that's great. But when you had the local papers here, they covered. The issues that matter to their constituencies, you know, they they were they are not to cover the necessarily the day stories, but to cover issues like say dairy issues if you were paper from upstate and they're not getting that anymore. And and there's less people looking into those lawmakers, so and and keeping them accountable. So I do think that has suffered. And it's just I think so many reporters now are just trying to right? What's going on? Because there's lots of fuel resources it makes it harder to dig deeper into other stories. That's a great point about having reporters covering the state capital from different parts of the state, just like you covered it for the daily news, which means you were reporting on how things the state government does affect New York City and downstate in particular with the daily news readers, and it's such a shame because wall covering Washington may make better copy a lot of times state government has such a direct impact..
