No flab jackson giving me the covid no. I love this someone. Someone tweeted out yesterday. It is official. I'm on another planet. I just drove by a suburban area. This is in new york and so local school kids with millions of parents and kids for team sports soccer bunches of kids with multiple teams. Have they vaccinated kids. And i didn't know and then some other guy from california then chimes in same here in so cal. It's unbelievable like people lose their minds if their kids can't play sports ball sports ball no masks incite kids sitting in big groups during and after practice. When i drive by shaking my head. I mean we are. We are sharing the planet. But these people who can't believe they're sharing the planet with us and we're both equally befuddled by the other. I ever come together with this. You don't yet don't you don't you. Don't they're just stupid in. There's really no cure for that. As far as i can see Speaking of which joe biden and his minions are claiming now that this bill this upcoming two and a quarter trillion dollar bill. But i just read an article. The said this slightly over two trillion dollar bill slightly over two trillion. You're ignoring two hundred and twenty five billion dollars in a two point two five billion trillion dollar bill it so we just discount two hundred and fifty trillion dollars actually two hundred fifty trillion. Just dismiss it out of hand now see trillion again. Yeah yeah okay. It's two hundred and fifty billion that we're just dismissing out of hand. But i love it. It's crazy slightly over slade. Leo's trillion still took trillion. Yes it's only slightly over that and you're talking about a quarter of a trillion in in money that you're just saying yeah. That's not even worth mentioning. I mean it's incredible anyway biden and and everybody a administration now claiming nineteen million. Jobs are going to be created is independent analysis. Shows that if we pass this plan economy will create nineteen million jobs. Economy jobs a move collar job who collar jobs that. Pay well jobs at climb on rock swamp fitters healthcare workers even job chicken steel factories and the cutting edge labs. Well the no report out. This week shows that nearly ninety percent of the infrastructure jobs created the american jobs plan be filled by people who don't a college degree excellent eighty five percent of those good paying jobs. don't need a associates degree challa blueprint for increasing the opportunity for people through those who've helped build the country and have been ignored or neglected for much too long our government. It's a once in a generation investment in our economic future. A chance to win. The future paid for by asking big corporations many of which do not pay any taxes at all just to begin to pay their fair. Share fair share time fisher time. You're nineteen nineteen million jobs created. Yeah this is all he you know. He mentioned in independent study. It was a moody's report that says that the economy all by itself is going to create sixteen million of those jobs on. Its own that any help without your bill. Sixteen million jobs were just naturally be created over the next ten years or whatever it is so the number of jobs this study by moody's claims will be created additionally because of this bill is about two point seven million which is still you know it's decent But it's a far cry from nineteen million. Wait a minute wait a minute. So it's just a bunch of spin again as always how. Many jobs is joe biden. Eliminating through a stupid policies like day one keystone pipeline. Shut down. yeah. I don't know but it's already over. One hundred thousand will even make up for that. I don't know i doubt it. So when you when you add this up. And you're spending two point two five trillion which again the two hundred and fifty billion hardly even worth mentioning two trillion two hundred fifty billion dollar bill. You're creating two point. Seven million jobs that works out to a price tag of eight hundred thirty three thousand dollars per job. That's pretty expensive. They're creating a job at the at the cost of eight hundred thirty three thousand dollars a piece..

"The leadership Because we have You perhaps don't know. Why does AOC complain that you have not been grooming younger people for leader? I don't know. You'll have to ask her. Mm. No, because we are that was kind of sharp kind of dismissing her. I'm not just missing her. I respect her. I think she's very effective as our other many other members in our caucus that the press doesn't pay attention to. All right. She doesn't sound like she wanted to be interviewed. Does she know she didn't enjoy that interview? She was, you know, it's interesting, too, because 60 minutes just came off of what was the thing last week, a fake news story about Ron de Santis, and they never really followed up on that. They admit that they set that whole piece up and that it was wrong, and they refused to take it down her change it. However, just well that Z what we did. That's how it is. Didn't 60 minutes do something very similar. Going back into the 2004 presidential election. They did a story on some fake forge documents. And they never really explained that they were wrong. Later on. It was about George W. Bush. I know that was a long time ago. And look, I'm not defending George W. Bush. But right. It's just interesting. This seems toe have happened before, is not the first time 60 minutes had a big scoop. And it turned out to be a big, nothing. Nothing burger to go with Hillary Clinton. Now did you just quote Hillary Clinton? I guess. Technically, I don't give me that is no way to start my day. Why was using her words against you guys talking about pictures of Nancy Pelosi and quoting Hillary Clinton. I may have to get leave and come back later. I'm gonna have to puke if that grosses you out. You should see some of these Pelosi deep thinks that somebody just no, no, no. You're not gonna trick me on that again. I know what that means. If you're having trouble losing weight, I got to think. Just go to the goog. Hi, Pelosi. Deep face No. And you will stop eating. Give it about an hour and then we're just gonna pop those up on the screen so that we don't want breakfast. I already want breakfast right now. I know I want I want breakfast to it. You hungry? I am. I'm always looking for him. Yesterday was a grilled cheese sandwich day. Do you think there's a couple laying around from the break room? Well, if itwas would you want to eat it Well, When say it be my first choice, but I've got I'm hungry after food is left at a radio station break room. What is the time period where you no longer want to touch it? Well, the first thing you have to think about is the fact that Somebody didn't eat this. And this is a room where a building full of radio people, ravenous Locusts radio people will eat pretty much anything the minute somebody brings it up. If it's free, why didn't they eat this? Maybe they didn't know yet, Maybe. Is it a late thing like so like in the evenings, there's not as many people here, So the question is a did they steer clear of it? Because it was something was wrong with it and me. Is there something wrong with it now because it's been You know, 18 hours since it's been sitting on the Cabinet? Yeah, I think the rule for food and a radio station is if you saw someone just set it down, go for it. But if you walked in and discovered it be very suspicious. Any time period Really. Usually the best time to find food at a radio station is during the morning shift. Is the most amount of people are at a radio station during the morning shift. For some reason, it's just the way it is. And then well, this is the important time of day. The people that work after 10:11 a.m.. Well, they know, I mean, it's no secret that, you know. If it's just not quite as big a deal Now is it radio is the most backwards form of media because prime time is in the morning and ugly people generally tend to do well. It's just different from the rest of what you trying to think. Nothing specifically about us. I was talking about the industry as a whole. Obviously, we're very not us Nowhere and someone highly regarded, especially in called that for years, I radio standards. But the media itself, though, is almost becoming his peculiar is the world of talk radio. I would say in this next news story I'm about to tell you about the liberal Idea is at least partially responsible for somebody being violently attacked the media responsible for attacks. Yes, I want to say this isn't in Tennessee. Is it? No. Okay, we'll get to that way. Have somebody already, emailed said Do Joe down here about the shooting in Tennessee. There's a lot of stuff to talk about. Don't worry. There's plenty of islands will get all of it. Michael Sang Bang read. If that name sounds interesting, right, it's because he's an American Korean Korean Americans. You pronounce that right? Michael Sang Bang re. I think so. Yeah, it could have been song among its S A N G. Bong. Song. The song Dong Sounds better Trust me and Bill yet I know how to pronounce Bomb. Michael Song Bang Re. There's a happy 37 has been arrested. Does he know Karate? California Karate is not Korea. It's so taekwondo, and maybe he knows it well, he probably knows something. He got arrested for a hate crime charge after he allegedly attacked an Asian woman. Like he's Asian. That's correct. He attacked an Asian woman. How's that? A hate crime? She thought she was white, purportedly, right. That's what they claim. Okay, that's still not a hate crime. You can attack white people. It's not a hate crime. No, it turns out you can't. This is confusing if you're attacking someone because of their race. It is a hate crime, Even if they're the same race. It's still a hate crime. But if he was a black guy, he can attack white people. Well, in this case, that's just that part of Ah, you know, you know, pay back. You're throwing some confusing stuff. Okay? We got a Korean guy attacks Asian woman. Did he say he thought she was white? Okay, stupid, according to the police. According to the police. Detectives believe the man who is Korean, targeted the woman because he thought she was white. Based on his own statements. The assault was a retaliation for hate crimes he's learned about in the news recently purportedly against Asian American the fake news story that the media keeps telling about the sudden ramp up of hate crimes against Asians because of the kung flu. That is correct, and the real story is it's about the same amount of Crimes against Asian people as the years before, right? Mm. Main group of people attacking nations is not white folk. Well, in many of the kid, I wanna tell you who it is. We have a great white folk. No, no, no, You're right. We can't talk about who it is. We have a tendency in this country to assume that any time people of two different races become involved in a spark of violence. Whether it's a cop shooting a black man in a car. Some Asian guy gets attacked in L A. Whatever it is. We have a tendency to believe it always has something to do with race because sometimes it has something to do with race. But usually it has nothing to do with race and the people telling you it has something to do with race are the stupidest people out there going for the easiest laziest explanation in an effort to toe hoist themselves up with clout. It's the quickest thing to say to explain a situation you don't understand, and it's the laziest way to get him some attention for yourself From where Another, and I can't think of a better example of someone doing this right now today. The Democrat Michigan representative receded to leave Michigan. Uh don't get me started between Michigan and the other em up there. North. Many mean Minnesota community, but Is it all of Minnesota.

"Do now fucking on because we saw good good with you shaniqua the who is just pick it up. I heard two book. Titles in there was my dog shit and me and the other one was like what was it like. it's your poop. Pick it up. Yeah we're like a dog like a scandal in the woods. You know reading both of those. Yeah i would. I would put those on made to read pile and maybe read them Okay i have something to feel petty about this week and it's like maybe not the pettiest thing in the world. I feel petty about documentaries. Not all documentaries. I feel petty about irresponsible documentaries. I feel like with Hbo net flicks hulu. Everyone getting into the documentary game. There are some that. I'm like as somebody who's worked in a newsroom. Like reported on stories and done journalism. I'm like this is very responsible. Tiger king for example tiger king was presented with a slant to it in a narrative to it that ultimately when more information came to light after it came out and everybody had already seen it We learned was maybe not the best to tell that story like the stuff about carole. Baskin making carole baskin. Look like a murderer. It's not as clear cut as a documentary. Made it seem and i think people watch documentaries feel like oh. I'm watching the news. But they don't have the rigorous like checking applied to them as like an actual news. Story would have so people treat it like it's a story. They're reading in the new york times but really somebody who oftentimes doesn't have a lot of journalism training. There are filmmaker who's telling a story Not necessarily covering all the bases. I'm just worried that people are watching documentaries and thinking that they're all the same and they are not some of them are really reliable and some of them. Don't hold up to scrutiny. So i just wish that people that are pushing documentaries out just to get volume on like streaming services would be a little bit more responsible because we have enough disinfect out there already. We don't need anymore. That's my feel betty this week. It's a little preachy. But let's not sure though it's true at. I used to watch documentaries in that way. And okay i feel so weird thing but then i went through journalism school You start to understand like how the news comes together like what it takes you know you do need to fact check Documentaries are more like factual movies than like a news article that or even broadcast journalism. That you're consuming. No it went through a rigorous process It's fair yeah. They're more like mosaics of like narrative than they are of like actual like someone with a with an objective. Like trying to get to the truth. They're just like letting people talk and the most colorful people get the most screen time. And it's like it's honestly. I've seen some documentaries. Where i'm like this is elevated reality. Tv i was just gonna say it's reality. Yeah the original reality. tv for sure. Cure and i'm sure you have thoughts on that too. Yeah this is. Your i feel petty. You'll like tiny little thing tiny little bone to pick shrews this truth this entire you know truth in nonfiction programming. What can we expect. When i feel petty. Meanwhile like no elliot stabler on law and order for tat to organize big time. Criminal intent is an entirely different franchise..

"And i can't say it's fair or good all the things but think back to you in So i was a business major The business school to get into it. I did not get in the first time. I ended up getting the second time but you know i was talking to a friend who was like all. These like fraternity people like they. Just get in. Like i see them. They are not studying as hard as you like. What is the deal and she said. Oh you know. They like the fraternity the the people who graduate alumni. They leave all the old tests all the old work in just like in their library so they can just study the old test. They have everything they need to get the grades necessary to get into the business. Also like that's how they do it you know. I think that like the parents of the students know what their kids are getting into what they get out of. The experience would hear a lot of backlash outcry from a lot of people but if we did not have them You know getting rid of fraternities isn't going to eliminate all inequity that exists entering world. But i do think you would start to see at least a snatching a little bit off because these institutions they do protect men. Young men from accountability From having to work as hard as they each year to get the same things that other people get But i think it protects them if they're not already you know kind of protected enough from real life from real life you know. College was very different for me than a lot of the students who went through those fraternities and in a perfect world they would get out of these institutions realize. Oh this is the real world. I have to behave in a certain way. But they don't and they continue to behave. The way they were taught and talk was okay with no consequence behaving in college. So i think hopefully we might see things change but mrs still like amid a male centered society. We live in. I'm not entirely sure. The fraternity is also so It's such a this whole system.

Podcast hosts to another What drew you to podcasting. Who would be your dream guests. And what is something you would want to ask them. You know i got drawn to podcasting. Because i love podcasts. And i had been listening to them and Thought after people said oh. You should do this well. Maybe i'll give it a try. And i've got this podcast. You and me both and it really is kind of an expression that i took to using because people would say to me. I can't believe this. And i'd say you and me both during the last four years we were doing a lot of you and me both things and you know. There's so many people. I'd like to talk to i. I'll tell you some people.

"You're not responsible for cleaning up this mess. No i'm always a looking for ways. That i can be helpful. Obviously not in the in the official positions. But i've spent a lot of time talking with old friends. Who are now in the biden administration and i really applaud the president for bringing in people who actually know what they're doing. Isn't that a nice change in the last four years and have put in place Systems have totally gotten rid of the bluster and the blaming and the finger pointing to say. Okay here's what we're going to do and here's how we're gonna do it But we still have a long way to go not only here at home and getting vaccinated and then getting children vaccinated starting with you know teenagers and going down But we've got the whole world to worry about because this is a mutating virus and left unchecked in some faraway place given you know transportation mobility and all the rest of what we live within the modern world. You know it will still be a threat to That might require You know annual Booster shots or vaccines like we do with the flu. But i give the biden. Harris folks really high marks for Not sugar coating it getting in there and dealing with you know both the scientific and frankly the political challenges it poses secretary. It's a fact to say that our kids are gonna be learning about you in history class. What is the difference. Between hillary clinton the symbol and hillary clinton the person. That's such a great question. Because i feel like i've been the same person ever since i guess i became an adult. You know pretty. You know pretty much who i am but i've been interpreted through so many different Perspectives and i've been you know vilified and admired i've been held up as a positive symbol and held up as a negative one. I've been really at the center of a lot of the debates that we are still having over and our role in the world and our ambition our willingness to assume responsibility So i I i think it'll be fascinating because it may. Well be through the eye of the beholder. People who understood what i was up against when i started trying to get universal health care for people and ended up being burned in effigy.

I mean i guess i guess being a progressive in this day and age is a commitment to just being at a low level of annoyance every single day. So slow-burn okay. Let's move onto some toasts. I think we just have one toast this week. Just one toast. I would like you to lead this toast. Eliza hey so we've toasted or before because we just can't get enough To our girl a bitch who does know how to govern just cinder ardern. Last week new zealand voted to raise. Its minimum wage to twenty dollars an hour. An increase the top tax rate for the country's highest earners to thirty nine percent before anyone reminds us that twenty dollars an hour. New zealand is not twenty dollars an hour in america. It is about fourteen dollars an hour in america which is still fucking good. In addition to this don't be small increases to unemployment and sickness benefits the government estimates that the minimum wage increase will affect up to one hundred and seventy five thousand workers and increase wages across the economy by two hundred sixteen million dollars once again. Proving new zealand is a great place to live. New zealand is a great place to live. If you're lucky enough to be from there because new zealand also has a law that unless you're a citizen you can't buy property which is which is smart. It was to prevent speculation and people outbidding citizens from being able to live. And you know as a person who lives in los angeles with million dollar homes sitting vacant and just owned by shadowy foreign. Llc's i sorta think might be a good idea for us to consider something similar. I think it is. I think it would be a terrible idea either. Yes okay well. We can talk about real estate on a future show. Let's take a break. And when we comeback somebody may or may not have heard of hillary.

"Yeah and well we might as well transition to this other thing that we are going to talk about to which we talked about on on a recent show which is the anti trans laws that are just popping up everywhere ev everywhere. And yet they're they're they're very cruel they. It seems like the same kind of hive. Mind that sits around coming up with ways to make i was gonna say a lot of overlap in geography looking at your south carolina. It's weird. I thought you guys loved freedom. But i guess you don't like it when other people have freedom freedom for guns. Aaron freaked guns get freedom. People will get back to that. That's can i legally register myself as a gun. Think of all you could do if i do so much stuff. Nobody could make me wait for anything it would. Yeah it would be. It would be great Go anywhere so there is something that just came out on wednesday. That's really upsetting from the state of north carolina which just introduced a bill that would ban medical treatment for trans people under age. Twenty one so for the purposes of this law people who are twenty would be considered minors which is right. Dick euless can drive. Vote diana war correct like and probably most of their friends could get them beer. Like if you're twenty you'd probably have twenty one year old friends in. It's not weird you know you know.

I think it clearly means walking around persons. Well some babies can't walk another thing that that really like is annoying about this If if the fourteenth amendment were used as a to try to outlaw abortion It would interfere with ivf big Big time even though lawmakers are playing fast and loose with like pregnancy vocabulary here like saying fetus wind. Technically a pregnancy. The products of conception are not a fetus until i believe the tenth or eleventh week of pregnancy. So if you're protecting fetuses you are. I guess alluding to the fact that you know under medical definitions up until the tenth week then. They're not persons but whatever. I don't think that's what they mean. They means i goats goats.

"There's a six three conservative majority on the court and you know people have been really afraid that something is going to happen right now. There is a case that is kind of sitting there. Waiting for supreme court action called dobbs versus jackson women's health organization That for some reason this week the courts still hasn't added to its list so people are a little confused. Like the supreme court is all like poise conservatives have moved all their chess pieces into place and yet they're not making move. Eliza what do you think is going on. What do i think is going on. I think couple things one bless his heart brett cavanaugh really had to fucking walk the plank during his confirmation hearing and say that he was absolutely committed to establish a precedent and settled law number one. Pretty sure any combs barrett said something similar. I think that right now. They're probably trying to preserve you know bad the integrity of what they said. Despite the lack of integrity they have in other areas. But also i mean like aaron. You and i both know this is this is the bomb this is if when they take a case like this it is the all eyes will be on them. And i'm just not sure they're ready for it. Yeah you know. Steven brier the justice who should most retire. Please for the love of god steven. Please retire And i'm saying that because he's my favorite justice and he's eighty three years old and we currently have a democratic senate in a democratic president. Now is the time the time please. I love you dearly you are. You are my maybe my favorite justice alongside sonia sotomayor right now but please do the right thing. So steven briar was saying something on wednesday about being anti court expansion because he was worried that it would road people's trust in the supreme court. And i was just like too late dude. It people's trust in the court has been eroded. And i think that the longer the court waits to take up any abortion case the More young people will have aged into voting or political awareness. And the window for the court to be able to overturn roe. V wade and not sparked a full on like a violent riot but a full on like ideological riot against the court and a complete lack of faith in the court. It the window is closing. it may already be closed. I think that overturning abortion rights or so. That states can make abortion illegal Is something that would be massively unpopular. It would undermine the court's credibility and it would also point out how a conservative minority is. Trying to entrench control. I think it would like ultimately be sort of like conservative shooting themselves in the dick or the foot but the dick works to. I just think dick is more colorful it if it. It's handgun tucked in sweatpants and a nightclub sort of imagery one other tack that That conservatives are talking about using too. I know you're going. This is actually crazy is uses raising the fourteenth amendment and having fetuses be characterized as persons under the law. Which would mean a lot of stuff so i'm just gonna read fourteenth amendment section one. Oh that's good. I had a cute up to. Oh that's amazing. My gosh we are. We've grown the same brain. I think are nerds. Also like sometimes notionally and we hear this from our listeners. Also all the time people know generally what things are. But sometimes it's good for us to drill down into the specifics. Yes exactly so. I'm just gonna read section one of the fourteenth amendment which is a very good amendment that in the play what the constitution means to me.

Philadelphia's Suburban Battleground: Can The GOP Recover?
"Reliably voted Republican. But the suburbs have changed. And last November, Donald Trump lost them in a big way. Now, with the 2020 midterms in view, both parties are wondering what's going to happen when Trump is not on the ballot. NPR national political correspondent Don Gonyea reports from the vote rich Philadelphia suburbs. Leads drop in on Chester County, Pennsylvania, It's suburban Philadelphia but a place with its own identity. We have a huge agricultural community. We are the mushroom capital of the world. You could come here for a mushroom festival on New Year's Eve. It's quite fun Democrat Mary in Moscow It's his chair of the Chester County Board of Commissioners. And we have a lot of industry were very big in the bio Pharma life sciences community. We have new technology coming in. So ah, lot of great things happening here. Right Next door is Montgomery County, where lives create? Hey V chairs the local Republican party, she says she's watched these suburbs flip from red to blue some only in the past few years. But she says the shift began long before that, If you look at the trends, this has been happening for many, many years. I think it accelerated over the last couple of years. But when I moved into Montgomery County 21 years ago, it was already starting to change in 2016. Hillary Clinton beat Trump in these suburbs, but not by enough of a margin to make up for trump strength in the States rural areas. She lost Pennsylvania, but Joe Biden racked up huge margins in the Philly suburbs. It was key To his statewide victory. The suburbs are far more diverse than they were decades ago, and many suburban voters had an intense dislike of Donald Trump Republican create A V is hoping some of those more moderate voters come back to the GOP. Now that they don't have trump who people voted against because they didn't Like him as a person. He's gone now. And so people are actually looking at issues now and things that affect them on a day to day basis. The changing politics in the suburbs
Explaining Biden's Tax Plan
"Biden administration agenda. He has several tax proposals, and so there will be increases on income tax, especially for the those making over the middle income range all the way up to the high income earners. He is going to do away with pretax contributions to 41 case. It looks like And make you report all of that on your 10 40 tax return, And then he's going to give you a credit for people making more than the average American that is going to cost you tax because the tax credit is not going to be the same amount that you would have had. Had you been able to this put in the pre tax dollars in the higher tax brackets, Okay? The capital gain. Tax rates are gonna double and he's going to do away with the step up in basis on long term capital gains. That would mean if you inherited a million dollar rental property that your folks bought 30 years ago for 250,000. And it doubled the 500,000 and 15 years and that 500,000 doubled to a million and another 15 years and you inherited and you sell it for a million won under the trump tax. Cuts, you would only have to pay 20% in federal capital gain tax on 100,000 What you sold it for over above what it was worth when you inherited it. Now there is still a surtax for Obamacare. What is it 2.8% of whatever on then you have many states will charge a capital gain tax rate to so many people pay more like 28%, or 30% in capital gains rates between the federal and state. Well. Biden wants to increase that upto ordinary income rates of 39.6% from 20%. So that's almost double. But you do away with the step up in basis. That means if you inherited that million dollar rental property from your folks You're gonna have to pay tax on the entire gain. And at 40%, you're gonna pay 400,000 instead of 20,000 and tax. So these are the things that are taking place and also the estate tax. He's going to take that from about 40% of toe 67% and probably lower the threshold when you start paying that tax. Heaven forbid he doesn't take it down all the way to the million where Hillary Clinton wanted to take it back down to, But many states will tax you on what you leave behind as an inheritance on every dollar over a million bucks, Okay? So folks taxes will likely be going up to cover a lot of these various initiatives that Joe Biden wants to implement. So this is where
Senate Ends Hope for Significant Wage Hike
"So we got the senate doing their senate thing today. Right to vote a rama. There's all these amendments and there was standoff happening in something that happened there today. A seven democrats and one independent who caucuses with democrats joined with republicans to shoot down raising the federal minimum wage to fifteen dollars an hour as part of the biden cove. Relief package among those democratic. Novo's joe manchin of west virginia. Chris coons of delaware. The moment that really stood out was when arizona democrat. Kirsten cinema walked up to cast her. Vote miss cinema cinema. No out she represents arizona. Maybe that was a homage to the late. John mccain. Who famously did that to that. Repeal vote but that full thumbs down from arizona helped end hopes for a really big wage hike that the congressional budget office says directly affect seventeen million american workers on a bringing maria. Teresa kumar co founding president and ceo voto latino fetchacure former senior adviser senate democratic leader harry reid and current advisor to bernie sanders. Faz let me start with you. I want people to understand this. Vote before we analyze us. This was a vote that was going to fail either way. It was essentially a symbolic message. Vote because it needed sixty votes filibuster -able so going into this. Everyone knows it's not gonna be talking to pass. No republicans are going to vote for it. So it's a free ride. It's a layup you get up there and say yes. We want to fifteen our minimum wage. So it was very very surprising to me. A lot of people to see democrats eight of them in the caucus vote. No what is your explanation. Of course you've got to go back in history. A little bit where. President obama suggested raising the minimum wage to ten ten. It was hillary clinton during the two thousand sixteen campaign who suggested raising it to twelve. It was bernie sanders. Who's been pushing along with you to raise the wage to fifteen dollars an hour. And as a result of that we have gotten a lot of progress in the democratic caucus and not all the way clearly and painful. Chris you take senator cinema arizona's got a twelve dollar minimum wage. And in fact if you look at raise the wage which gradually raises the minimum wage to fifteen dollars over five years it would be at twelve fifty by year. Three which is where harris zona is so many ways it doesn't really impact arizona and yet you have center for cinema denying many people. Millions of people around the country are arrays of their wages. Maria wha what did you make so. I used to work in congress. A- as a hill staff for a long time ago on preparations and this was fairly unusual. Because what those eight did was say. That they were not going to deliver the biden agenda in the biden administration. Right now is going to figure out how to channel little lbj and demonstrate that there are consequences when there are not voting down for the presence agenda. As you mentioned. chris. This was a layup but i have to say when we when we witnessed this thumbs down by cinema. I think for a lot of folks people felt at at odds because when john mccain did it it was to save healthcare for millions of americans when she when she did today was turned down. This idea that there was going to be some sort of economic closer to economic committee. For millions of americans and fifteen dollars has even fifteen dollars does not keep pace with the with the inflation rate of the nineteen. Seventies the raiders really. I established it was perplexing on many many fronts but this is an opportunity really for joe biden to say. You're going to have to come down to the white house because we're gonna have a talking

Is people believe that q is someone very close to president trump. according to him many in our government are actively worshiping satan or they call moloch. I mean is it going to be true that the child pedophilia and the elites in the washington. Dc is that what we're really going to see them out is it going to be satanic worship q. Was in the house of representatives Loops now marjorie taylor. Green is hardly the first member of congress to hold some out their beliefs. I mean ted cruz believes that bid as working for him but cunanan is not just extreme. It's usual people. How are you going to be in the government and believe that the government is full of satan worshipping sex predators. It must be exhausting to be walking around the halls of congress. Just constantly opening doors like ta. Now just a supply closet. Gotcha now just a copy room fire. Now that's my office man. I'm so lost and it's not just cunanan. In fact it seems like green has a conspiracy theory for every letter of the alphabet the trump backing republican embraces completely false in on conspiracy theories and in a newly uncovered video from twenty eighteen claimed former president obama is muslim. The clintons had jfk junior killed and even questioned whether a plane crashed into the pentagon on nine. Eleven it's odd. There's never any evidence sean. For a plane and the pentagon facebook posts have surfaced in which green called the deadly parkland high school suiting. Fake along with video showing her harassing parkland shooting survivor. David hogg red light gun laws that attack our second amendment right. How do you get avid gun. Owners and people that support the second amendment to give up their guns and go along with anti gun legislation. How do you do that. Maybe you accomplish that by performing mass shooting into a crowd that is very likely to be conservative. Is that what happened in las vegas. Have you seen the picture of ruth. Baiter gingrich walk into the airport. Butler hillary clinton so is interesting. So i do not believe that was ruth negga. I don't think so. I don't need wow okay. So our bg has body double. Hillary clinton has a body double one makes it sound like everyone has their own body double. I mean that's such a silly thing to believe you'll the weekend they're onto us get out of them and raw but the big question is how did osama bin karen get elected to congress in the first place well it turns out she was lucky to be one of nine republicans running for the seat. So everyone's attention was spread around instead of focused on her kind of like how. There are so many different kinds of oreo. Now that you hardly even notice that one of the flavors of human flesh and while some of the cuban on stuff did come out mostly what voters knew about her was that she was a hardcore trump supporter. And yet she sometimes sounded like a crazy person but only in a comforting familiar way. She's a former trough in gym owner. Who has a few roles editor father's construction company but really has no political background at all. America's the greatest country in the world. We need conservatives in washington that will keep it that way. The democrat party is no longer an american party. They are now the party of socialism. They wanna rip our borders wide open. They wanna kill babies up until birth. And maybe even afterwards i have a message for antifa terrorists. Stay the hell out of northwest georgia god. Damn i'm no which house. I'm skipping on halloween. And by the way everyone's freaking out about greens cunanan on beliefs. But if you ask me. The scary cultures involved in is crawford's scientology jumping jacks but yes aside from the cul stuff a lot of greens. Beliefs are typical for today's republicans. But she also has a little extra something that makes the far right. Love her even more. It's racist

QAnon after Trump: The Storm that never came
"Justin ling is an author and a reporter who has been following the twists and turns of the cunanan movement for most of this year. Hello jesmyn hey thanks for having me of course. Why don't you start before we get into what's happened since joe biden was sworn in What we're various cue in on believers expecting to happen on january. I think the vast majority of people who follow the conspiracy never thought joe biden would ever be inaugurated. They said that repeatedly a whole part of the queue. Mythos has been that something amazing will happen and that donald trump will be at the last minute. Of course cunanan has been sort of the vanguard of the conspiracy that donald trump never actually lost the election. That was old rigged the they were the ones. We're doing a lot of that. Frontline research but research in scare quotes there that underpinned the trump campaign's effort to overturn the election. You can draw a straight line. From a lot of the conspiracies that popped up on q. Forms like eight chan and gab. A right into at the trump campaign's legal filings around the election. Right the conspiracies around dominion voting systems basically gaining sentence and changing trump votes to biden. You know that started on a lot of these forms and wound up in those legal filings from sydney powell from lynnwood from the trump campaign that were an attempt to overturn the results and then also founded the belief of some republican senators congressmen. Who tried to deny. Joe biden certification victory so they consistently thought that those efforts would work when they didn't they deluded themselves with a sort of magical realism thinking that something would happen today. That on this stage will as joe biden's hand hits the bible that there'd be mass arrests that the national guard was really. They're not to protect the inauguration but to set the stage to have joe biden and his compatriots arrested. there was a pervasive belief. That a military tribunal would be set up in dc and that all of these folks from barack obama to bush hillary clinton joe biden kamala harris. Everybody would be arrested and tried for treason. I mean this is literally what many of them believed. I'm not exaggerating. This was the bedrock of the faith. The cunanan had that would turn out in their favor. Any word we're talking. You know to thirty on wednesday afternoon. There were still a whole bunch of folks who think that in the next ten days. It'll all the inauguration will turn out to be a ruse There is a tremendous amount of faith from these folks. Things will turn around in their favor. Any given moment that. If it's not now than pretty soon. And i think it's been horror on many of these folks to watch predictions consistently failed to come true will. Yeah you've been keeping an eye on these forums for for a long time off and on but you've also been Pretty glued to them over the past twenty four hours or so and as you mentioned. We're talking on wednesday afternoon. How of they've been handling it as you know. I trump depart. Says he wasn't supposed to then. Nothing happens at the inauguration. Then nothing happens when they inspect the troops and you know presumably knock on wood No mass arrests take place at the inaugural or whatever but like how. How do they deal with that consistent disappointment so i think there's there's kind of a handful of different camps right is a camp of coup non believers or maybe former cunanan believers who are accepting that things haven't gone their way who are posting right now on a lot of these forms saying you know what that's it i can't do it anymore. My face has been shattered. This was all a ruse. We it was sort of a triple fake out. None of the prediction come true Either q. is never real or they're overplaying their hand or whatever. Basically these folks have accepted that none of this is real I don't know that those people are going to turn around and embrace liberalism tomorrow but at the very least they seem to be disenchanted and done with this sort of far right conspiracy. Making there are other people who have kind of come to the same conclusion but to a different from a different angle. You know there were there. Were people who used to believe this or maybe who will always kind of in the same Area of belief but never quite trust the cunanan thing who are saying. Well we've been played. You know this was all just a gambit for people who make money you'll get power whatever but we have the double down on the same mission does not under the ambit of of cunanan. These are people who are probably very. Who are i know anti semitic who are you know. In some cases homophobic racist who are deeply reactionary and conservative on these are people who just fundamentally can't square a biden administration but who we're going to find a new channel for a lot of those grievances and there are going to be a bunch of people who who stick with who convinced themselves that this is all part of the plan. I've seen a theory emerged in the last day. That says the joe biden is in on it that actually joe biden donald trump working together. And this is. This is people trying to rationalize how these predictions keep failing right. You always have to find a new path to explain everything all there's always numerology that goes into it. There's always some sort of of myth making that you have to do to to sort of comport. What's happening with what you
6 essential lessons for women leaders
"And goes ten years ago. When i became prime minister of australia i assume that at the start they would be a strong reaction to me. Being the first woman about it would obeyed over time. And then i would be treated the same. As savory out. The prime minister head bain was so wrong. That didn't happen the longer. I governed the more visible the sexism became. I don't want any other woman to be blindsided like that. That's why i'm so excited about working with you to help. Women get ready to lead in what is still a sexist world. I share that sense of excitement. After i was finance minister of nigeria was overwhelmed by the number of women who wanted me to be the mental. It is terrific that aspiring young women are keen to learn from those who have gone before. But they're still too few female role models especially women of color now. As a result of the work we have done together. I can offer everyone. Class standout lessons. That tabbies just of my own experience. What on the global research on women and leadership and the candidate sites of leading women one of the things to share. Is that this joy in being a leader in having the opportunity to put your values into action emphasizing. The positive makes a real difference to the power of role modeling if we only focus on the sexist negative experiences. Women may decide that being a latest. Sound so grim. They don't want to do it on the other hand if we pretend it so rosy and easy women and girls can be put off because they decide. Leadership is only for super women who never have any problems. We all have to get the balance right but in ghozi. It's impossible to talk about role models right now without asking you. How does it make you feel to see. Camera harris elected as vice president. I'm delighted it's important to the association of girls and women that they see role models. They can relate to vice president-elect terrace exactly that kind of role model particularly for girls and women of color and every woman who steps forward makes small space for the women will come next of course both of us know from and experiences that even win women get to the top unfortunately too much time and attention will be spent on what they looked like rather than what they do and say and ghozi for women. Is it still all about the head. Certainly julia. I laughed when hillary clinton said she envied by dress style and particularly my signature scuff. So i don't need to worry about my hair. Like many of women leaders have effectively adopted a uniform. a colorful one. it's african. it's me. I have developed my own style that i wear every dan. I don't vary from it. That has helped protect me from endless discussion of my appearance. It's helped me to get people to listen to my words not look at my clothes. Hillary told us she lost the equivalent of twenty four four days of campaign time in the two thousand sixteen election getting her hair and makeup done every day but actually contemporary problems for women leaders go far deeper than anything to do with looks at better. Warn now about to use the would. Many people would find rude. My favorite funny moment. He now travels was discussing resting bitch. Face with prime minister earner solberg of norway. the global research shows that if a man comes across strong and bishops. Even so faking. That's fine but if a woman does it in the reactions against her can be as visceral as revulsion or contain. They pretty mind bogglingly. Strong words happy. They certainly are women. Lee does talk about intuitively understanding that to be viewed as acceptable as a leader. They have to stay balanced on a tightrope between strength an empathy if they come across as too tough there viewed as hard unlikable but if they come across as too soft there seemed to be lacking the backbone needed to lead the problem. Is we still all have sexist stereotypes wearing in the back of our brains. I was portrayed as out of touch. Because i don't have children as even compared to a barren cow in the bush. Distant to be killed for hamburger means. That's horrible at you. Face that stereotype. While i was worried that people will think i couldn't do my job. My family was young. I enjoyed token to new zealand's prime minister justin that dan about experience as its second woman ever to have a child while being national leader. I was very taken by. Has saying she doesn't think she gets the work life balance right
Pro-Trump mob storms the US Capitol, touting 'Stop the Steal'
"So we walked through how we got here. But it doesn't quite do justice to that queasy feeling you got when you saw people marching through the halls of congress and breaking down doors when you saw crowds of people cheerfully waving their flags from the capitol balcony. So i wanna bring. Abc's chief white house correspondent. Jonathan karl and abc senior. National correspondent. Terry moran terry what did a day like. This mean for the united states of america. What do you take away from it. A dark day for the country and i think most people feel that way. This is one of those days that that that will remember and that will be remembered. I if it fades into the mist of history. I'll be surprised because it is something that's never happened this this mob. What does it mean it means. We got through this election. By the skin of our teeth they failed to attempt to obstruct the congress. This failed insurrection. Only underscores how crucial the task before us is for our republic. Joe biden one. Absolutely no doubt about that. But if we're not for the person of mike pence and mitch mcconnell maybe in a couple of other people you know. This mob might have represented the end of the democracy. That's what they wanted. They wanted to stop the certification counting of electoral votes certified by fifty states and give the election to their guy donald trump. Nobody knows what the hell is going on. There's never been anything like this. We will not let them. Silence your voices. we're not gonna let it happen one thing. I was struck by the chance. Fight for trump fight for trump not fight for america. This is a movement in our country and it reached a terrible bloody apex at the cap. Very jonathan karl. I mean you were keeping track of of not just congress not just washington but like inside. The white house has a switch flipped in washington when it comes to how people see the president and his his mission here. My sense is that we are looking at the end of the trump era. All i can say as count me out. Enough is enough of tried to be helpful. I think you saw a moment here. Where donald trump after a string of losses that led to this day loss on november third the losses in in georgia and the senate races in good conscious object to the certification of these electors not to mention the override of of of the veto. That happened On on new year's day You know the president has has seen a a series of things that haven't happened throughout his presidency. Which is losses at the hands of republicans. If you vote to overturn these elections. Wouldn't it be the opposite of what states rights. Republicans have always advocated for them. This would do m- the electoral college forever. And there were certainly a lot of speculation. i think we we had spoken about the possibility of donald trump going back to mar-a-lago and mounting a comeback or at least becoming a kingmaker in the republican party. I after yesterday to those who wreaked havoc in our capital. Today you did not win. Violence never wins. Freedom wins and this is still the people's house. I don't really think donald trump As republican kingmaker is is a likely scenario after after january. Six or after january twentieth. Does it go beyond that jump. Because you know you heard terry talking about mitch. Mcconnell in even mike pence these forces that were kind of constraining president trump. But how far could that go. I mean what kind of constraints could we see. On president trump going forward. It turned out that it was not his orders that got the national guard into washington. Dc you've got people resigning out from under him overnight. Essentially saying were sickened by all this. And now we're even giving talk about like the twenty fifth amendment. Is that a serious possibility. I there is We we have confirmed. There have been members of the cabinet. Who have had conversations about the twenty fifth amendment that would be effectively removing the president because he is mentally incompetent mentally unable to do the job. those conversations are happening and they're happening not just among the cabinet where it's relevant but also among The president's allies some of the president's allies on capitol hill But that's a. That's a really steep climb. That is an extraordinary thing. You would need in a vice. President can submit a declaration to congressional leaders saying the president is unfit for the job. The president now can contest that and if the vice president and cabinet persist that would lead to a vote in congress but that has never happened before under circumstances such as these now. That's a real long shot. But it just gives you a sense of where we're at and how how worried people very close to donald trump are that those conversations are in fact happening. I'm sure that there are responsible members of the cabinet. Who right now are thinking about. What are their obligations under the oath that they took. And they're not thinking about those things they should be dairy whose complicit in what we just saw i mean you know. I think that's the question that it's going to be weighing on a lot of people going forward here is. Is it enough to say. I condemn violence. But i do believe this. Election was a sham with without any evidence whatsoever like what are the legacies of essentially everyone else in washington stemming out of these events well i think as senator ben sasse republicans nebraska put. It lies have consequences. America isn't hatfields and mccoys. Blood feud forever. america's union. There are a lot of reasons to vote for donald trump. There are lots of reasons to vote against joe biden or against hillary clinton but to tell the american people lies That the election was stolen by some combination of software companies Hugo chavez out of the grave and i don't know the bigfoot that has consequences and to stir it up and drive people to the point of you're telling people they're stealing your country from you. They're stealing your country. They're going to take your guns and they're gonna. They're gonna slaughter babies and kidnap them and put them in a file rings and all the rest of it to wind people up like that. What do you think is going to happen seriously. Especially under the leadership of donald trump. Who has a gift for bloody language as a gift for stirring people up. But we're going to try and give our republicans the weak ones because strong winds. Don't need any of our help. We're going to try and give them the kind of pride and boldness that they need to take back our country he's in march to the capitol and he said show you aren't gonna win by weakness it takes strength. Be strong up there. You know that whole rhetoric of of brutishness in violence and the fist is is the real power anybody who went along with that and plenty. Did the american people may very well judge you to be complicit but i would just say. I'm not as sanguine as john about this is all over. You know these kinds of movements sometimes take fuel from an event like this a lot of republicans. Now have a taste for this kind of this kind of politics. Look what happened in the house. Some of the people who breach the capital today we're not trump supporters. They were masquerading as trump supporters. And in fact were members of the violet. Terrorist group antifa more than half of house. Republicans voted to nullify the election after after the mob attacked the capital. That tells you that. I think this is a long way from being dead.

Joe Bidens presidency
"And foremost happy new year to all our listeners. At the ever present risk of tempting fate it does feel like two thousand and twenty one can only be an improvement on two thousand and twenty one. Primary cause for optimism is the fact that after january twentieth earth's most powerful office will no longer be held by america's worst on imprisoned citizen description. Correct as of this broadcast between an untamed pandemic economic crisis and the spectacular mess made in general by president. Donald trump president elect joe biden faces a daunting oval office in trae won joint first of all by christchurch mcnichols news editor and by suzanne lynch washington dc correspondent with the irish times in this first part of the show. We'll look mostly at what president-elect joe biden wants to do and will do domestically but chris festival on that thought of succeeding donald trump. How much political capital does joe biden inherit just by virtue of not being donald trump. Well to be honest in some ways. That is a question that will be. I think more important end to discuss in the second half of our show. We look at foreign policy. Because i think that is where there is arguably a lot more political capital. You know joe biden will enter office of this month to lead a country that is still extraordinarily divided. It has to be said that whatever Court decisions were taken efforts to reverse. This election rejected by courts and by many academics. Who saw you know and others observers. Who saw no real evidence of fraud. It is important to point out. I think that potentially a majority of republicans are going to come into this year. Voters believing. Joe biden is illegitimate that that is not correct. That is not that is not what happened. But it is nevertheless a danger for democracy. And it's something that really i think is important to watch. Joe biden essentially has a tremendous amount of goodwill from half of the country who expects him to reverse many of the policies that donald trump implemented over the last four years and he will do a number of those from day one but we should not forget the other half of the country that will be causing a huge stink about all of this and it will be very interesting to watch how he tries to bridge those gaps particularly when it is such a strong divide as i say even in the sense of many just simply not even seeing him as their president suzanne to bring you in that division that chris delineates the is going to make extremely complicated one question. Joe biden will have to grapple with which is what does he do about donald trump. Does he as best he can. Just ignore him and hope he goes away or does he turn various congressional committees and the department of justice loose to try and get to the bottom wherever it may be of whatever. Wrongdoing was done. I don't think joe biden instinct will be to do that. I mean joe biden has presented himself very much as the kind of the nation's healer. He's talked about his own track record when he was in the senate for so many years of working across the aisle with republicans and working productively republicans. Now some might say that. Joe biden is suffering from naive radio. That washington has changed. That things have become much more polarized on they have in the last decade or so so he for example has has quietly hinted at his relationship with mitch. Mcconnell mitch. mcconnell is more more than likely going to be leading. i'm the two men have worked together. Particularly joe biden was vice president and mitch mcconnell in the senate and but even still you know. We saw mitch mcconnell reluctance to add call. Joe biden president-elect even though he had had won the election so that is a major at challenge for at for joe biden is going to be handling congress also. The problem facing him is democrats did very badly in november's election in terms of their seats. Both the senate and the house so not to pelosi now coming into a new year coming into a new congress with a much reduced majority and that is going to make things tricky for her. She's going to be tried keeper own party in check and i think a lot of the more left wing elements of the democratic party. Who basically were prepared to put away their differences with the establishment democratic party. If you like to try and defeat. Donald trump i now all gloves off and i think we're going to see this element of the party. The bernie sanders winged. Aoc wing. you know. Really kind of be vocal about what they believe. This joe biden presidency should deliver so i think you know that whole political reality of how washington is going to work with the mats in the house and the senate is going to be a constant challenge for joe biden other tries to govern. We'll chris let's look at the most pressing issues that will face president joe biden which is of course the covid nineteen pandemic now. Obviously there are grounds for optimism. Which is that a vaccine exists but it is going to take a while to get it to everybody. We are still months away from normality returning to the united states. Between now and then is there anything. The president biden will actually realistically be able to do to make an obviously already dreadful situation slightly less dreadful. Well i think he is going to try his damnedest to do that. he has set this or that that we all know now of Essentially a one hundred million doses of the vaccine in his first one hundred days disseminated to the public That's an ambitious goal. Although at the same time it it should be said that this was A goal if you will of the trump administration as well And this was. This was something that was planned. They had essentially bought one hundred million doses for the first quarter But the biggest challenge that we are going to see this In these first one hundred days is really going to be how that is disseminated. How is it gotten through to hospitals. you know and how states and local authorities cooperate with the federal government in order for that dissemination to take place how the army is potentially involved. It is a herculean task to get all of these vaccines out as quickly as joe biden has promised and i think it's going to be interesting because on the one hand you know he is as we you know he's he's still not president until january twentieth much of the work on this has been done by the trump administration At the same time there is you know there is this risk if you will or you could also put it in a positive way. There's an opportunity in that joe biden. I think will very quickly find that. This becomes his pandemic to deal with. And that he will be reckoned with in terms of how he is able to get certain programs underway. That means that his people his entire operation is really going to have to hit the ground running incredibly quickly when they take over in particular because they also have not gotten that much help that much cooperation from the trump administration in the transition. Suzanne joe biden has of course being in the white house during one previous dramatic intervention in the united states economy. When he and barrack obama arrived in the wake of the two thousand eight collapse will he be tempted towards something similar in the current circumstances or preceding more on the assumption that wants the vaccine is taking effect. The us economy will more or less sort itself out. Well it's it's a very good point. Under i mean i think there are lots of parallels here actually to what obama faced obama joe biden back into into a nine and you know even between the election on the inauguration i mean america. I'm particularly america then. The wider world was embroidered the biggest financial crisis in decades. And they have to deal with that. So yes there are a lot of parallels i think joe biden has a proven record on this and they were able to pass the tariff act. They did the the bailout fund for the auto industry hugely complex pieces of legislation. Where a lot of money involved. And that may well be the case. Again i mean the. Us economy at the figures december have been worrying. There has been worst. Jobless figures than had been expected am the signs of recovery. We saw in the late summer. You know really didn't continue as we kind of got into that second. Wave around thanksgiving time so i think the economic consequences. This you know are really not getting. Maybe enough attention here. Obviously so at the figures are overwhelming in terms of the deaths the infection rates and but there's also a huge impact on the economy. And i think we're going to see i. I believe around the world. It's it would probably accentuate this. You know the difference between the house and the have nots. If you like you know the poorer are are people who are have lost. Their jobs are in less secure. And yes we're seeing the stock market. Do very very well throw twenty twenty and a lot of people. You know hoarding cash. Essentially as saving. So these kind of issues i think are going to be front and foremost for joe biden particularly. I mentioned already because of this very strong left wing within his party. They want joe biden. Who who has been pivoting. More to the left economically i think for example compared to say a hillary clinton at the time you know four years ago and i think he has suggested you know with his pick johnny yet and his treasury secretary. She talked about for example. The need to address structural issues economic inequality along racial and gender lines in the united states describing how they are important for the economy to address that. So you know what he's going to do in terms of getting more covert relief. Package is going to be a key element of this first one hundred days in parallel to the huge logistical challenge of getting those vaccinations out trying to encourage people to get vaccinated etc and again. This is all going to depend on his relationship with congress and these are going to be. It's going to be a lot of money involved in this and Republicans in particular in the sandwich have been At loggerheads with democrats out late twenty twenty about the size and scope of a of any rescue package for the american economy and you know commentators ironic air pointing out the national dash went way up under trump a now are we going to start hearing republicans complaining about the national debt. So i think that whole aspect as i say in parallel to the the health issue is going to be a key concern for biden in the first few months presidency. Chris susanne mentioned there a couple of members of president-elect biden's domestic team we should talk about obviously the highest profile member of that domestic team which vice president-elect kamala harris do. You anticipate that she'll be a more visible and obviously engaged vice president than usual because it's going to be a very different relationship. Between her and president biden vice president biden had with president barrack. Obama perhaps ironically as things have turned out biden. wasn't really seen as a natural apprentice. successor To the much younger president he was he was running alongside whereas you already. Since there's a a feeling gathering kamla harris's president in waiting. Well i think To continue the two thousand two thousand nine parallels in in some ways. This is a sort of the reverse of that. As as you're discussing. Because i think when joe biden came into office as vice president he sort of provided the experienced the heft to the to the obama administration as the time as the sort of political establishment candidate for you know a relative neophyte in barack obama at the time and so his role You know he was. Obviously you also had before that dick. Cheney famously is maybe the vice president who really transformed the role but joe biden sort of ran with that and he was this You know incredibly powerful Very involved vice president as involved if not more involved than dick. Cheney was as vice president you know before that vice presidency often was seen as this very unimportant role and so i think in that sense perhaps looking now to kamala harris In some ways there's a reverse there because she is not the one providing the heft if you will joe biden is now even more experienced than he was back then so he will be the the fully experienced leader if you will in this campaign In this in this white house And so the question will be in that sense. What kind of room. He is willing to give kamala harris. What exactly she is going to put her stamp on In terms of us. And i think that's still a bit of an open debate. He obviously picked kamala harris because they have a good working relationship. She is somebody who was Arguably more of a centrist than some of the other candidates that he could have picked. You know she's not from the bernie sanders wing of the party. I think that was important because in wanted to pick somebody not only who was historic in terms of being a woman. I african american as well in the vice presidency But really somebody that he could have a good working relationship with in order to use her as both a trusted adviser and entrust her with leading on certain issues. So i think it will be very interesting to see how that relationship plays out and finally as you say as one point he obviously has not expressly said it but many would assume. There's a very good chance that joe biden will be a one term president and so in that sense. Yes this is. Come a harris's chance to really show that she is the one who will take up the mantle of being the leader of the democratic party of the future christchurch. Mac thank you for the moment.

New tensions emerge between Biden team and Trump administration
"Joe biden's incoming administration is taking shape. Former deputy secretary of state anthony blinken will be nominated for secretary of state x fed chair. Janet yellen is up to run treasury retired. General lloyd austin has been tapped to run the defense department. Some of these names have been more controversial than others. there've been some progressive objections to biden's likely pick a former iowa governor. Tom bill sack to reprise his role running. The agriculture department and a lot of republicans in the senate are cool to the choice of near attended a close hillary clinton confidante to run the office of management and budget. Some other choices like yellow. Have gotten pretty warm receptions across the political spectrum to talk about this administration that's what is likely to mean in terms of what a president joe biden might actually do. Let's bring in our left right and center panel on the right law. Chen is the david. Diane steffi fellow at the hoover institution and he's the director of domestic policy studies and lecturer in the public policy program at stanford lot. He has worked on several presidential campaigns for republicans including george w bush's reelection campaign marco. Rubio's two thousand sixteen run and he was the policy director for mitt romney in the two thousand twelve presidential campaign. Hello lonnie thanks for having me and on the left sabil. Rama joins us. Bill is president of demos a progressive organization that studies and advocates for voting rights economic and racial justice and equity sabil is also an associate professor at brooklyn law school. Bill so bill when you look at these names What does this tell you about. The sort of administration that joe biden is preparing to run. So i think the roster that's being built out is really interesting to me what it shows. Is there too big tensions that i think the new administration is trying to balance. A one is a balanced between old hands and some new faces and the other is a balanced between a pragmatic course and also progressive ones. So when you think about someone like janet yellen or cecilia rouse on the economic team These are folks who have deep experience in economic policy but also represent. I think a little bit more of a kind of a progressive wing of the larger policy debate. Not these are certainly not Bernie sanders elizabeth warren folks but they very much represent a part of the economic profession that is increasingly focused on issues of inequality Racial equity and issues of how we get around are sort of current problem of austerity politics. Lot he what do you make of this list of names. Well i think first of all there are a number of very highly qualified people on the list people who have great experience in government who i think even republicans who may have policy or ideological concerns would have to say are well qualified to play the roles. They've been a nominated by the president. Play and so. I think that that's a very hopeful. Sign on the other hand. You've got some real head. Scratchers here josh. There are people who the president is nominated for roles in various situations that i think people kinda wonder what was he. Thinking there Heavier sarah for example to be secretary of health and human services a man with no health policy no public health background who's really so claim to fame in healthcare is arguing to defend the affordable care act which by the way may have been enough for biden but it really seems to be one of those picks where he had put the sarah somewhere so he put him at. Hhs which under ordinary circumstances might be okay but in the middle of a pandemic hhs is going to play a critical role in disturbing the vaccine and hopefully overseeing and the the end of this covid nineteen pandemic here in the us. choice of. Sarah is puzzling one. The other one that i would point to which doesn't require senate confirmation and so Will be what it is. Is susan rice as director the domestic policy council which has traditionally been the policy making apparatus at the white house that coordinates the creation of domestic policy overseeing areas like education and health care immigration. Picking someone with with the deep foreign policy experience for that job seems to me to be a little bit odd. I think she was picked for that job. In part because it doesn't require senate confirmation and biden. His team knew there was no way republicans. Were going to confirm someone is controversial. Susan rice so for every sort of great. Pick for every janet. Yellen for every brian You know you have a few that sort of make you think. Gosh what is the biden team doing here. So it's a little bit of a mixed bag so far. Yeah bill when. I look at the list of names. I do sometimes see what he is describing their almost a sense that biden had list of people that he liked and wanted to give jobs to and a list of jobs he needed to fill and in some places. The matching of the to feels a little bit random. I'd also point to to marcia fudge who's an african american congresswoman from cleveland. She'd openly campaigned to be agriculture secretary. She's a senior member of the agriculture committee. There'd been a lot of progressive concerns about how the agriculture committee has dealt with black farmers and about beneficiaries of nutrition programs people primarily eat food rather than making it And biden has passed over. Her is expected to bill sack in that position and then fudge specifically said that she didn't want one of these traditionally black cabinet jobs like labor or housing and urban development. She's going to be put up to run housing and urban development. So some of these choices they do have that feeling to me of what we want this person job. Well here. this one's available. Let's give them out. One is that is that. Is that too harsh. Look looking at this selection process and saying that you know i. I do think there's a little bit of that. In terms of the example with congressman fudge gave. I think is a is a good one of your. She has deep expertise actually on areas connected to usda. I'm at the same time. I think she'll bring a novel. Interesting and important voice went on the issues of hud but there is a little bit of that. I think the thing i would offer is you know. There's so much going. On with this transition. Given the pandemic given the extraordinary delays that the trump administration put in place at one things that we're really looking at is what's what does that next layer down. Look like so when you think about the whole team Not just cabinet but cap a deputy secretaries and so on can does it look like a team that then has the balance of deep expertise and Mission alignment right at someone. Folks who are laser focused on the combined crises of of the economy and covid and climate and original justice moment. That's the next layer. That i would look at right. Are folks getting complimentary. Picks to offset some of where they might need additional insight or expertise

"And you are the speaker at the graduation now. If your community was three billion people on facebook. Well you wouldn't have been elected to speak at your graduation. Turn into and a half billion people would have been better than you add it or at least a better job marketing. Yeah absolutely and so these little incremental pools that we're in where we gained confidence and we learned that we take a little baby step towards all these things and then of course you then learn how to become hillary clinton and be the secretary of state and go talk to putin and have some level of competence but man if you just started out competing with two and a half billion people you've been like i'm kinda average average. Yeah well you know. I think that's especially true in women's lives because you know too often. We are programmed to compare ourselves against impossible standards. You just feel constantly like you're not good enough. You're not this enough. You're not that enough. And you're right about the confidence factor. I mean it's in small groups starting frankly and your family but then increasing sized groups in school and community you discover who you are where you create your identity. Where are you get the confidence to pursue your own interests and dreams and if you short circuit that because you get thrown into this gigantic pool of as you say like two and a half three billion people well. There's no way that you're ever going to be competitive. It's just a fact of you. Know the numbers. Mathematically it's impossible so we're not doing our kids any service by tearing down all the boundaries and thrusting them into a social media world where they make friends with people they never meet They try to develop relationships with people that They have no idea who they really are because they too or trying to put their best face forward. It's a complicated Path to navigate right now. I just have a quick question. Going back to transitions and you moving into the public stage. I've wondered this since the two thousand sixteen election like you. you know. I'm wearing my nasty woman shirt right now. Chris me and dex sister carly on election day. We went out we gave. We went to the polls we brought doughnuts. We were so excited. And for you like you're carrying around the weight of me of the girl down the street. You're walking around with all of this pressure on your shoulders of all these little girls like i'm dying for this to happen. I need this to happen. That's so much like it's no unfair of all of us. I mean we can't help but it's unfair of us to be projecting all of that energy onto you but you know monica. I felt that. I mean you have described to a tee. I really felt the weight of history..

"He did not have any idea how to raise a girl so in effect. I was given more freedom to just explore. He cared a lot about schooley. Care a lot about grades. If i bring home good grades say that must be an easy school so opposite sort of tough love mode of parenting. The combination of the two of them really worked and i think that's another way of thinking about it. You know the combination of you and their mom brings different experiences and aspirations for them and kind of together. It all works with chelsea. She was an adventurous. Little girl was five years old. She announced that she wanted to go to sleep away camp because she wanted to start having adventures. So i said you go away when you're five and so for me. It was constantly trying to find the right balance. Not imposing on her. I wanted her to become. But trying the best. I could to enable her to become whoever she was going to be. You know it's hard. I mean it's the hardest job i've ever had. I mean i had a lot of hard job and it's the hardest one and you get them to adulthood and you go. Who boy and then you know. Adulthood poses new challenges. My mother when i was in the senate. My mother lived with us during the last years of her life. And i'd come home. And i'd see you're watching fox news and i'd say why why she said i have to know what they're gonna say about you. That's gotta be a little bit painful. And she goes. You know you are a good girl growing up. And i just don't know what happened. The things they say about your so terrible that maybe you should turn it up and not pay attention so even when you have an adult child or you're still kind of your heart's beating hard so now we have these three amazing grandchildren. And i'm going through it all again because they're three totally different personalities and that's the other thing this whole nature nurture kind of that people talk about you can see their personalities. Don't you think. Oh my goodness yeah. It's craz from the earliest weeks and months of their life and their different. And you're trying to give them the same parenting but how can you give the same parenting to three different little people who responded in different ways and so it's a constant balancing act but that's part of the joy as well as the challenge of being a parent and with five and a seven year old girl in your house. You know. it's going to get more complicated. I hate to tell you that sure. It's going to get more complicated. I actually think raising kids today in some ways.

"Leaders consistently rutlessly, and they've been quite creative in adapting to the cyberworld. Lot of what they used to whisper about now, they can yell about through trolls and bots and proxies of all kinds on social media. So when I left the State Department, I wrote a a long classified memo about dealing with Putin going forward. But I could not have imagined that I was considered such a threat to his ambitions that he would do everything. He could to undermine me and to exploit divisions within our country in doing so Jimmy Carter I was interviewing him in the spring of two thousand eighteen and he said to me then. There's a general feeling on a global basis that democracy is reached its peak and his declining. He was right. I don't I don't think what he said is a necessary. Prediction about what comes next I do think that democracy is under pressure even siege a lot of places and unless we do some serious structural reforming, we may continue to lose legitimacy. We have to make democracy work for everybody and you know you need that periodically you know hundred plus years ago we had to have the progressive era. We had to really rain in the unchecked power of capitalism and do what we could to get a a regulated market functioning during. The depression you know Roosevelt understood what he had to do to try to help people survive and also create some institutional safety nets for people I mean you go through history it's not a self accentuating method of governance. Don't wake up and say, okay, WE'RE GONNA turn on democracy and it's going to be on for the rest of eternity you gotta keep looking at it. You gotTa keep tending to it. You gotTA keep reforming it and fixing it, and so I do think President Carter is right to sound that alarm that yeah around the world we're seeing democracy under tremendous pressure and if we're serious about. Our democracy and making it something that people believe in again are proud of again worked for again participate, and again, then we're going to have to make some serious changes and I'm hoping that you know Biden Administration will address a lot of those issues. You have an article that ran in the October issue of the Atlantic about. In Beijing the UN Conference on Women which you said that line that seems strange controversial than and now that women's rights are human rights. One of the points you make in it is that it's hard for people to think of leadership. To think of women in leadership. We've we haven't had a lot of women in American leadership and around the world we've got Kamala Harris running to be vice president. Now, some one of the things that she's thinking about, I, you spoke with her recently yourself for your podcast..

"In the Javits Center New York City. It's this big glass convention center on the West Side of Manhattan, Hillary Clinton plan to give her acceptance speech there and shatter the glass ceiling under a little glass ceiling. Of course, she didn't end up giving her speech but fast forward four. And the Javid Center was filled with beds turned into a makeshift emergency hospital at the peak of New York's outbreak. It was a striking contrast and one that's left me thinking about secretary. Clinton what she must be thinking watching this election play out. What did she think watching president trump fly to Walter Reed with covert after all Donald Trump and his conservative allies pummeled her after she contracted pneumonia in September two thousand sixteen and there was that video of her falling over. So on this week show Hillary Clinton joins me and I asked her. It's a bit incredible to look back on the two thousand, sixteen race with the rise of Donald, trump Russian election interference the Komi letter, and consider that that was almost a normal election. In the interview you'll hear me mentioned rolling oranges with the secretary. That's something we in the press did in those days before twenty twenty, you'd fly around in the same plane as the candidates when they weren't offering up the chance to ask a question sometimes people would write on an orange and roll it down the aisle to get them in the front of the plane sometimes, they'd roll it back. Today being on a plane with a candidate let alone bowling fruit to them doesn't happen because it's too dangerous. So I've been doing a lot of my reporting zoom and stuck in DC for the many months I expected to be out on the trail. The silver lining is that sometimes I've gone to talk to the folks I wouldn't have normally seen out on the trail because they're stuck at home to. Without any more to do here's Secretary Hillary. Clinton. Zoom from her home in Chappaqua New York. Oh. Hi How are you? Oh, you know groundhog day I'm. Groundhog Day for all of us. Totally. How is Quarantine Ben the lockdown? Now thankfully. We're all healthy. We're well and We've been outdoors a lot. That's been a saving grace. The weather's been fabulous I don't know what's going to happen. We starts getting cold and dreary again. We've reached the point where the other day I put a jacket on and I reached in and I found a face mask and the jackets of the seasonal whether Oh. Wow, which ends depressing. That's a that's a marker. L. Well at least for not participating in super spreading events I yeah. I've been. Somewhat complaining about, Joe Biden not doing more press events on the one hand on the other. I'm not sick so. You know what? I really admire the way that he not only followed the science and he did what normal mature responsible person should do. But he stuck with it. Good for him and good for the campaign around him and his family and that wonderful shot yesterday of Jill pulling and. Yeah, it's good. Yeah I mean I've been with him. No further than Wilmington. Philadelphia since it's all started but the I was all around beforehand I was with him on March ninth. At the final rally that he did and they were squirting hand sanitizer to everybody came in and. tweeted a video of it. They were like hand sanitizer Hanson like look how crazy things are at this point, and now like that hand sanitizer is probably worth a couple hundred dollars a gallon. That's exactly right. And I went out one day to Detroit with Harris two weeks ago, and that's the only time we've been on a plane since then and it's been weird..
