Viral Video Labels Democrat, RINO Female Senators As 'Bipartisan'
"I'm going down some rabbit holes, Twitter seems a little more conservative friendly these days now that Elon Musk has the helm. There's a video that kind of went viral that shows a bunch of Democrat female senators. You got mazie hirono and the whole bunch of them, Elizabeth Warren, Pocahontas is in there. There's Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins is described as a group of bipartisan U.S. female senators. It's not bipartisan. It's a couple of rhinos in a room full of Democrats and Kamala. Vice president cackles is in there too. And it's just a creepy video and they're all waving at the camera. They're all happy and they're all drinking wine or whatever they're doing. And the caption from somebody is this is me waking up in hell. This is me in hell. Looking at all these smiling maniacal faces. Oh, look, there's Pocahontas. Oh, Susan Collins. Man, oh man.

Of Course Ketanji Brown Jackson Is the Affirmative Action SCOTUS Pick
"Jackson. Here, as katangi is in front of the United States Senate right now for potential confirmation. Okay, let's go to cut 41, senator hirono, who wants to build highways from Los Angeles to Honolulu, and also wants the Green New Deal to be ushered in and taz told men to sit down and shut up. Has pushed back against this idea that katangi is the affirmative action pick, which of course she is, play cut 41. And they have implied you were solely nominated due to your race and not for other factors. Your nomination is about not about filling a quota, it is about time, it's about time that we have a highly qualified, highly accomplished black woman on the Supreme Court. It's about time our highest court better reflects the country it serves. Yeah, it's not about affirmative action, but it actually is about the affirmative action because it's time that we have affirmative action. It's exactly what I expect from senator hirono. And by the way, no one's implying that katangi was selected because of her race, we are very transparently saying it because Joe Biden said it. No one said Joe Biden did not run for president saying that we are going to have people come, I'm not going to select people on the Supreme Court that are wise or that our steeped in constitutional experience. No, he said all along, it's going to be a black female. Again, melanin content
"hirono" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"The Democrats call the question on voting rights and the filibuster What is their strategy From the Bloomberg interactive broker studio in New York welcome to the second hour of balance of power I'm David Westin Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer is expected to press forward with voting legislation today despite lacking the votes he needs to get past the filibuster And despite substantial doubts whether he can even get the majority vote he needs to reform the filibuster rules to take us through what's going on and what the strategy is We welcome now Kevin walling He's vice president of HG creative and former surrogate for the Joe Biden presidential campaign Thanks so much for being back with us Kevin Good to have you here What is the theory behind this Because at least the pundits people who votes think they don't have the votes why go forward with it Yeah David it's good to be with you And of course we just saw a senator Schumer of wrap up his remarks kicking off debate right now on the floor of the Senate with regards to voting rights I think his main calculus is he wants an up and down vote heading into the midterm elections he wants accountability for Republicans that are fully locked up against both of John Lewis Voting Rights Act and the freedom to vote act So he wants some level of accountability before voters so he can frame that argument I think heading into the midterm election year Okay So let's assume he thinks he's unlikely to win this He wants people on the record so that people can run against opponents in the election in November Is this a big vote getter It could be very much so in terms of we've seen as we just saw with senor mazie hirono who is also in the floor speaking after the Senate majority leader that 47 new laws have passed just in the last year since the 2020 election involving voting rights We know this is an animating issue on the progressive side of the Democratic Party right So you have a lot of members of the congressional black caucus the progressive caucus that are really focusing on this issue because we're not seeing that much movement right now on build back better So this is the animating issue before the Congress right now and we'll see if it can be to your question David and animating issue before voters I just now less than 300 days before the midterms It's interesting because when you see polls of the issues and voters care about you don't see this come up very high on the list in general It tends to be more things like COVID and the economy and inflation By the way there's no question inflation is a big one I don't see it very high on the list in the polls I've seen You're absolutely right I think you hit the nail on the head It's going to be COVID The saving inflation and the state of the job market and the economy heading into 2022 But again I think as I said before this is definitely an animating issue especially with members of the black caucus at black and brown communities across the United States are focusing on this You saw a big push with speaker Pelosi and members of the king family just this past weekend honoring MLK talking in grand terms about this struggle for democracy So I think before voters it might not rise to that level of support on that list that you tick off But certainly it's a key issue for many core voting blocks within the Democratic Party Isn't it animating on the other side as well I mean I certainly have seen some polling that say the Republicans are really concerned about election integrity as usually the way it comes up It certainly is And we saw Republicans campaign pretty effectively on that especially down ballot We saw Glenn youngkin for example use that of course as a line of attack Just in terms of voter choice vote parent engagement that kind of line for his successful effort in the Commonwealth So we'll see just how much of an effect it has on getting us the Republican base as well You mentioned Bill back better What is left of that I mean it's gone silent at least in the press recently We haven't heard anybody talking about it much It's a very good question and we just saw a caucus meeting within the house caucus with a speaker Pelosi and more moderate members of the party It really pushing for a piecemeal approach now to build back better It's kind of harking back to the idea of the politics of the possible in terms of the Bill Clinton years where let's segment out certain components that are very popular within the Democratic Party and support them as one off bills that can get some action on the Senate floor again with an eye to midterms that are fast approaching And what effectively Democrats can campaign on like the childhood tax credit like more money for a climate change legislation like funding of universal pre-K those are all key components that could also be part of a stand-alone package that gets passage before the House and the Senate How important is the State of the Union and all this process You know the process very well inside Washington The president likes to stand up and say something about what he's gotten done is an important for him to get something passed before March 1 I think so And of course we're going to hear from the president this week as well in his second televised press conference I think he'll frame both those priorities as both with Bill back better in the economic focus tackling COVID and then of course speaking about voting rights But you're right in that it's an important press conference this week And then it must watch most important State of the Union on March 1st It's the latest that has ever been held in recent memory in terms of that date And certainly the president is going to want to recalibrate both on the COVID crisis voting rights all these other priorities as part of that State of the Union So there's a perception that's written about a lot It could be just the pundits talking but the president's had a pretty rough couple of first weeks of the year here A lot of things did not go well that he would have liked to have gone well Is that your sense Is this a sense within the Democratic Party right now that you're a little bit back on your heels I think there is that perception Of course the president has a 50 50 split in the Senate of 500 majority in the House I think we as Democrats have failed to really animate before the American people in the communicate just all the things that the president and this democratic Congress has done in terms of American rescue plan to bipartisan infrastructure framework all of those things So we have failed I think and making the case of what has been accomplished in this first year Obviously as you said at the outset David inflation is the key focus with COVID as well Heading in now to this third year of this COVID crisis So the president is really going to have to speak to all of this at that State of the Union and really paint a picture for what this next year looks like heading into this midterm election Just briefly here at the end of James Carr will get it right yesterday when he said Democrats should stop whining talk about what they did do rather than what they didn't get done Absolutely right I'm never going to disagree with James carville in terms of his political opinions I think you spot on in terms of nobody likes wanting everybody likes strong leadership That's what we're going to see out of this president this week with this press conference of course I would say the union Thanks so much Kevin Always great to have you with us That's Kevin walling of HG creative Coming up why are we losing so many working age Americans Justin.

"Hey, guys, we got you elected so you should give us everything we want. However, they got elected. So all these people want more money than even Gavin can produce and it's It's a struggle where it's totally focused on the dams and what they'll do Port. So you're going to get a different kind of dynamic. I admit I was shocked by the S e I u thing. But then not really. And while they're mad at him, you do realize that the guy who just throughout the long time head Round on the basis that they weren't going to give any money. Danny of these political jerks who would turn on us like that, basically, and he's going to cut the dues and half and give the money back to the members. That's exciting. Oh, good for him. Well, well, good luck with him being able to hold to it, But you're right, and I think it comes out of the one party state. And despite the fact that what they all think Resource is finite. And when is the evil Republicans standing in the way of enough money than they can go? Just elected? Give us money. And will, you know? Do it for you? Well now evil Republicans aren't in the way of anything. So they're going. Give us what you promised. Then they don't have enough to deliver it. Let's go back to what it would also, by the way on schools. Yeah, it's fine. Do lots for the unions. The lockdown was an amazing thing, because the union's got in the way of kids going back to school, and you have all kinds of people out there. Hysterical. And for Gavin, Who are you going to make angry at you all those parents or you tell a And and by the way, he's clearly considering not coming down the side of the parents since he's talking about all this money that won't be there if you don't open. Let's go back to fighting the last war because you listen to people like Gary South, who were advisers to Gray Davis in the last recall. Was also advising Gavin News toe Newsome this time around and has advised him earlier on in his political career. Garry South absolutely believes that Cruz Bustamante, putting his name on the ballot on the second question of the recall election hurt Gray Davis and caused Democrats to vote for the recall who otherwise would not do that because they wanted Cruz Bustamante to be governor. This time around. They have put the force of God behind the notion that if a Democrat puts their name on the ballot and the recall election, they will be banished to Siberia for eternity. It looks like they'll probably get what they want. Is that a mistake? You tell me it was gonna happen between now and November, and I'll have an answer for you. Um, because just the way it's running Eve even more. Then with Gray Davis because a lot of people didn't like him very much. Lot of people didn't like him. Um If it's about Gavin Newsom, right? And I don't honestly believe whether or not you have a Democrat alternative will matter that much. However, find Newsome. I don't want any Democrat. That might pull any boats and the way they pull votes. I don't think John that way out, Gary, but that South would actually no more than I would on this, but I doubt it was that they wanted Cruz Bustamante. It was well if we get rid of Gray Davis We won't be in any worse position because we'll have crews. Um, so they're trying to make sure that alternative isn't there in their place. I would do that now when the budget falls apart and the riots happened, and we're all on water rationing and half the states burning up. They're gonna be real Sorry that I guarantee you. It's gonna be a Republican elected and see, that's where I just God, I might be wrong. That's where the people who were going all the Republicans aren't getting aware. All the Republicans aren't doing much of AH, campaign that's reaching anybody that's legitimate. But at this moment in time, it's probably irrelevant. I don't think any of those people can come up with something that would go. Look, Look, you can have me so vote to recall Gavin. And by the way, if any of them can do that, they can run a year from November, But I don't think that's what's going on. The dynamic is all around, Newsome. But if stuff goes south for him, and they're stuck with no Democrat, somebody's going to be hated. By the way. It's gonna be that Gavin Newsom let messengers rolling the dice in ways I can't believe here, but whatever makes you happy. Let's talk about the border because Kamila Harris was put in charge of the border by the White House. However, she is now telling anyone who will listen. I am not in charge of the border. And a mad at the media for saying that and I'm mad at Republicans for saying that so stop saying it. But the reason that the media saying it and the reason that Republicans are saying it is because that's what the White House said she was doing. So she's really mad at the White House for making the world assume that she's in charge of the border. What's going on there? Advair. There's was likely. And then there are the fun, conspiratorial theories, right? Um what's probably going on is that Joe Biden probably did have apartness. And Barach and put him in charge of various international things that Brock didn't want to have to deal with. And Joe put his vice president in charge of international things. And then Joe moves along. Um my best guess is that and that Kamila understood. This is not a good gig. But the way this is going, there's no way I look good on this right back when she comes to California's far as I know, she's in Northern California all the time. She didn't even do that. So I think that's the most likely A less likely But much more entertaining possibility, of course, is that Joe didn't really want her. Joe wanted Gretchen Whitmer, but he promised Jim Clyburn all right. Always got Kamila and all my heaven shoes, an annoying woman. At least she is the other women. I can't not so answer from him. On. Do you know? Come on, sister do something and gave her something that great If she could do it, if she can, it'll cost her and I don't care. I like that idea much better. Oh, yeah, and or people with knives out for her. And they're going to be back there. All kinds of them. I could name some sort of slipped it in. Jesus. Be a great place for comma. Ah, yeah, I did that for Brock Have Mm, anyhow. Striking. I live like you. I think that's a much more entertaining possibility, although not probability. The mayor of Los Angeles, Eric Garcetti has been nominated to be ambassador to India, and he can't wait to get out of Los Angeles. I talked to people who are following this very closely in Washington, D. C. They tell me he doesn't have the votes. He's gonna have all kinds of problems with the meat to allegations from Rick Jacobs and people like Kirsten Cinema and Maisy Hirono are not gonna be able to vote for him. And he is also the poster child for defund the police, which makes him a real problem for Joe Manchin, Kirsten cinema, Mark Kelly, Jon Tester, and others and the Republicans aren't certainly gonna bend over backwards to support this guy..

"Enact on behalf of the people in our country why why are republicans kind of refusing a. I guess. It's like a false negotiating tactic. They act like you're going to sit down with you and talk to talk about bill. But that's not reality that i actually good-faith negotiations was the deal with that. Then the deal with that is they. Don't want us to go forward with these bills. They want to delay and we know this already. Because for the affordable care act. I think we negotiated with them for a year and at the end of which they didn't vote for it and they proceeded when they were empowered to try and repeal the bill dozens of times so we do learn from past behavior and if they sincerely to come forward and work with us then things will move but otherwise disney otherwise these guys have delay tactics will be seen for what it is that they have no intention of working with us in that major legislation to help people. How is an activist. How can i help out. legislation in the senate. Let's say you know the dc statehood. Bill comes to the senate. How can i help out to make sure that it passes or it gets a vote it. We'll get a vote but like how. How can we support that as much as possible. I think that there are so many groups that are have already come forward. The thing is that dc has a wonderful delegate and eleanor holmes. No not But you know they actually need senators. They need people who can make those decisions. So in terms of helping one way is to elect people into to the senate who will support dc statehood and and that means that we need to pay attention to what is going on and in all these racists across the country for federal racist. That's one way. Find candidates who will support dc stays statehood and send resources to them. What are some things that you may. Maybe excited about having a new administration in charge. What do you. What do you think we can accomplish with president biden. Well one of the big things as we now have president. Who takes your sauce ability for getting this pandemic under control unlike the previous percent. And so the. The vaccinations are huge part of neighboring our country to reopen to reopen our school safely. And all of that and so. He's done that taking taking responsibility for a national Process to get the standard under control. Then he wants to get our economy going and he wants to help the people who have been badly hurt by the spend mccann's the rescue plan build which we push through how to do it using reconciliation because they republicans made it clear that they had no intention of working with us. The next step is the huge infrastructure. Bill dough back better bill. That would create jobs with low with long term benefits and take a a green Economy green approach to energy usage. So all of the things that he talked about. He's putting into place not to mention that. He denounced the attacks on asian americans whereas the previous person used incendiary language. Such as calling this the china virus and his administration calling the through creating an atmosphere where the kind of anti-asia. The hatred could come forward so for so many reasons. We not have a president who cares who empathizes who listens to people who Use this fax break decisions this. There's lots of folks who wonder if the previous person and his accomplices will ever face accountability. We see these reports like haczek violations or pompeo or does anything happen. The other criminal referrals. That could happen or you know or we kind of moving on from here. I think that The georgia for example georgia attorney general. That that she is probably she has Open i think some kind of an investigation regarding his interference with their elections. You have the new york District attorney looking at his tax returns and other things. So th there are a number of these kinds of of investigations happening to hold trump accountable This is a person who has led in my view. The most corrupt administration that i can think of you saw nixon senlis bad. He looks like Like piker compared to trump and his and they blurs right and now back to the book to fire it covers a lot of territory during the recently ended term of the past occupant of the white house out of the forty fifth administration as you refer to them ultimately impact you personally as an elected official because i saw you immediately come out against him very vocally and i. It was very supportive of the american people and we were kind of on a lonely island so we really appreciate that. But what was it that ultimately impact you personally elected official chump. Yes he's a bully and he even during the campaign was unbelievable that our country could vote for this person. does he divisive. he was He went after women he was. He was a horrible campaigner and he got worse as president. So i who had enough that a lot of time. Talking with the national press and Really engaging with them very much it came to the point where i just couldn't take it so I began to be very much more vocal. Something that from my culture The background in hawaii being vocal aggressive confrontational are not particularly rewarded and hawaii especially coming from a woman and so i was effective and doing my job in the state state legislature and the governor without Having to be that way. But i can't stand burley's and trump was the biggest bully of them all and once. I began to speak out in twenty seventeen. I believe i was the first senator to call him a misogynist a liar then a sexual predator and he should resign and i said that to what we refer to as a spray of reporters and Media people. I think you know what that is having worked in the white house. I believe he said and so these were people who were arrayed at the end of the hallway and so is going to judiciary committee hearing and at that point trump had just described my good friend. Kirsten kirsten gillibrand as coming to see him on her knees begging him for help and innuendo was so horrible. That i saw this guy needs to be stopped. And so as i was walking tour my hearing i saw this free and my communications or just you know. What if you want to say something. This is a really good time to do it. And i said yeah why not so. I stepped forward. And i said those things so i began to be a lot more vocal and i also understood how important was for people in our country to to hear someone confront this president. I'm not the only one. But i as a minority woman. I think i made an impression. And i also speak very me as you. Well know i have been known to swear once in a while. But i've said that with all the horrible things that the channel is doing if you're not moved to swearing once in a while you're not paying attention. Hell no i remember that i remember. Hell t tell us about what brought about that. Oh that was the confirmation for eighty barrett. And it wasn't as though i was shouting hill from the rafters but i went up to the clerks and i said i. It wasn't the exclamation point to my no vote right but i have been a lot more vocal publicly when i said the men in this country should just shut up and step up and do the right thing that i said into a microphone..

"Us legal system is harsh on children. It was only in the two thousands that our courts abolish the death penalty for people under eighteen for example late last month the supreme court ruled on sentencing minors convicted of homicide to life without parole here to explain the ruling and its consequences tiffany jeffers. She's associate professor of law legal practice at georgetown university law center and our legal analyst here on our body politic. Welcome tiffany. it's great to be here. Well it's always great to have you on and we're going to run through a few different issues. Let's start with the supreme court case jones v mississippi. What's at issue. Just break it down for us. So what's at stake. Here is making a determination as to whether juveniles can be sentenced to life without parole For the crime of murder and the court has said yes they can now which is a drastic change from where the jurisprudence has been over the last decade or so as it relates to sentencing juveniles. And this all stems from the eighth amendment's cruel and unusual punishment raising The right to be free from cruel and unusual punishment in the context of being punished for crimes. And so what was the precedent. The cruel and unusual stipulation meant that this just wasn't done in the past or was it done. Sometimes it was juvenile's had previously been sentenced to death and that's where the the courts started with saying that juveniles could not be sentenced to death rate. So that was the initial case precedent and then moving from there. It was a decision of the discussion change to can juveniles be sentenced to life without parole in the issue. Here is whether they can be sentenced to life without parole without a specific finding that their actions are encourage -able meaning that they are so reprehensible. This particular crime shows that they cannot be rehabilitated. And so that's what the court is saying. That state courts are no longer going to be required to make a finding. that achieve. Now cannot be rehabilitated. Before sentencing them to life without parole for murder in the science doesn't support this finding at all. A child's brain is not fully developed. Really until the mid twenties and so that science is saying essentially that all juveniles can be rehabilitated until our brain is set as adults and the court has has just strayed from their jurisprudence. All the way up until.

Who tried to rein in government spending and expose fraud and abuse in the federal government. He finally went back to hell today, and that's just how the world works. Almost You could almost get used to the double standards. If they were just stop changing them step altering them. Stop making it worse. You know, it's it's just not a good guy. Died. OK, But now it's history's greatest monster finally has the earth is finally liberated from this monster. That's where we're getting. Imagine. I mean, when George H. W. Bush died, they were critical. They were whining They were complaining to this day if you still mentioned Ronald Reagan's name to a committed leftist They go into a Tourette's fit about wrong. Racist s old cracked the CIA racism raises a welfare queen Welfare queens. Welfare queens lie. It was a woman in Chicago. I believe it was who had made a fortune defrauding the welfare system. And it was the Chicago Tribune ER Chicago Sun times that used the term that coined the term welfare queen. Well, Reagan picked up on it. She defrauded the whole bunch of people and the state. She was milking the system. She happened to be black. I believe she might have even been white. I don't even remember. But it uh It was a true term created by liberals. But once Ronald Reagan said it It was Aaron. It's just code. That's basically he's using the n word. He's just basically using the n word. Just it's the exact same thing every time. Why they say, Well, Ronald Reagan would never ever in a million years. We welcome in today's Republican Party but still left. That is changed. They've gone more radical. They've gone absolutely insane. Donald Trump the Wuhan virus, Remember what it is called the Wuhan virus back in January, February and March. It was called the Wuhan virus, and then Republicans started calling it the Wuhan virus because viruses are generally named after the first place that they're detected. And the media declared that to be racist, was a member of Congress who did it. It was said it and I don't know what a light bulb went off on one of their heads. And they also but this is racist. Why? Why are you saying Why are you blaming Chinese people? Are you hoping for hate attacks against Asians? No, It's just that's what you guys have been calling it that for two months. Well, no, that's racist, and we would never have done such a thing. And then you show them hours of years clips of you guys saying and then no, no Republicans insist on using the racialized Wuhan or Chinese coronavirus. Terminology and it's just wrong, and it will cause an increase in hate attacks, and it became And accepted fact, this fiction just became an accepted fact. And everybody in the media who had we have video of them saying Wuhan or Chinese coronavirus, we have them. Saying it Are now they're lecturing Republicans about you shouldn't say that it Zweibel DLee, racist and inappropriate. They just changed things on a dime. Don't know why we can't get along and politics. It's because one side isn't Playing. Forget fair isn't being honest isn't dealing In reality. They're willing to take a word that exists. We'll all agree this word exists and it means this and it's always meant that And they go well now it doesn't mean that it means something completely different in the fact that you use it, but amazing, Hirono used said during the Confirmation hearing for Amy Cockney Barrett. That they term preference, sexual preference. Is hateful. And wrong and bigoted. And then 12. Hours later dictionary dot com had changed the definition of the term preference, too. Reflect what Maisy Hirono said. It was in that moment you just if you hadn't realized it before that, you realize there's there is literally no getting along with these people. They have their own reality. And even if you commit yourself to playing the verbal game and doing the gymnastics needed to keep up with the latest terminology of this is what you call these low. Okay, I'll say Latte next or Latina X or whatever it is, I will play along with that, even though like 5% of Hispanics think that's a good idea, and the rest of it think it's garbage and all these white suburban liberals and media go of the Let next community and people are going. What the hell is that? Even if you play along with that. They'll change it. They'll change it again. If conservatives adapt to anything and play in playing the game, the Democrats just changed the rules again. And then they pretend that the previous rules never existed. Nobody would ever have done. Such little Latin Ex have never heard such a term. And it's probably racist that you're using that term Senator Republican and you need to resign from Congress immediately to see it with this impeachment trial. Go and you gotta fight for your country. Oh, that's a horrible, horrible term. It's inciting violence or really well. Here's 17 days worth of audio clips and video clips. Of you.

But we're just looking at Let's be honest about where we are. At this point, we're at a waste of time. This is a complete and total waste of time. It's weird because Democrats came in is that we've got to do this. We've got to have priorities. We've must have X Y and Z We must push through covert relief. The American public can't possibly survive without covert relief. We have to have it. And then what are they doing? They are bringing the United States Senate to a screeching halt.

Because 600 plus 1400 equals 2000. People already got 600. Joe. But you you promised 2000 as if like 2000 more If somebody gave you $500 and said, I promise I'm gonna give you $2000. Here.

She's she's too dumb or the island is full of idiots, and she's their queen. I don't understand how else Someone like amazing Hirono can be elected to the United States Senate. Off course, If you watch most of these people on TV, you have to sit there and scratch your head and go. There's nobody better. What were they running against?

But no Marjorie Taylor Greene. Is now the greatest monster in the world. One side has tens of millions of deaths racked up In his name and the other side.

Marjorie Taylor Greene is clearly the winner of the worst human being on the face of the Earth in the history of the planet. And that's really how it's been portrayed if you turned on CNN or MSNBC. It is all Marjorie Taylor Greene. Now ask any of your liberal friends. Where she's from. And they won't know they might be able to belch out of Georgia. She's from Georgia. But that's not specific enough. Ask them. What congressional district What? What city? It represents the biggest city. What's the geographic area? They won't know because nobody knows. Nobody cares. She's a backbench member of Congress. He's one of 400. And 35 voting members of the House of Representatives, who, by the way, has done nothing yet. She hasn't been around long enough to do anything yet. She has no legislative accomplishments that they could look at and say, My God, she's She's passed this horrible bill. No, she's only been there for about a month so she hasn't done anything legislatively. Now it doesn't matter.

He just Kind of have to have being nerd and not have a life. But the president of the United States, Joseph Robinette, Biden. Everything old is new again with the Democrats if you paid attention to what Democrats have done who Democrats are what Democrats are And their obsessions. You notice that one thing race Overrides pretty much everything that they do. All the way back to their founding. They were the founding. They were the party of slavery of discrimination of hatred. They lost the civil war. But they never lost the total war for what their obsessions were. And that is race oppression, all of those sorts of things. So they've after the civil war. They started in with this segregation, The Jim Crow just everything. Everything that the civil rights Struggles were against that was the Democratic Party's platform. That was what they promise that's what they delivered. That's who they were. After slavery. They were no longer allowed to enslave people. So they made it basically so people could not get jobs. Black people could not get jobs. They could still be working, You know, for a little bit of money, but You know, not much. Their goal was the same. In the civil rights movement came along and said, Hey, you know your Democratic party enforcement wing. The cake that's got to stop. The segregation has to stop this ridiculous notion of separate but equal has to stop. Democrats, just like the Civil War. They thought that They really thought that too. And they lost that too. Just like the civil war, But one thing determined people. We're good at Is Somehow finding a way to continue to fight in advance their agenda, no matter what. So they instead change their tactics, never their goals. Their goal was always to subject eight non white people to get themselves in power to maintain power. And make sure that nobody threatened that power put it beyond the reach of any kind of threat. That's what they've established. Now They're doing it in the name of tolerance. Now it's weird. They used to do in the name of hatred in the name of bigotry in the name of discrimination. But now it's done in the name of tolerance. The objective is still the same. You're seeing colleges embrace discrimination. Segregation separate Dancers, separate graduation ceremonies, so on and so forth. They're really desperately trying to hold on to the vestiges of the past, which were the keys to their power. If you can, you know, I always say, divide and conquer. It's divide to conquer. They need to divide to conquer. Because otherwise, if you're not more worried about what your neighbor might be doing to you what you know if you can't plant that seed that somebody's out to get you then sooner or later, somebody's going to start looking at your policies. Somebody's going to start looking at the results of your policies or lack. Of results of the policies. But if you are conditioned Through all of the infrastructure of society government at all levels. Popular culture. Education. If you are indoctrinated to believe that there is some kind of nebulous other some society out there Trying to keep you down. You're not going to pay attention to what's actually keeping you down because what's actually keeping you down is telling you Don't worry. We've got your back. Okay, Somebody's somebody's gonna have my back. Thank God. Somebody's looking out for me. Thank God Somebody is looking at out for me and trying to protect me from this nebulous. Boogey man that nobody could really nail down what it is. You can fool a lot of the people Ah, lot of the time and for a very long time, and that's the basis of Democrats. If you look at Baltimore, you look at Chicago, you look at Detroit. ST Louis. You name the Democrat controlled city, the majority minority cities out there that have been generationally controlled by Democrats. Nothing's gotten better. Nothing's gotten, but you can't point to anywhere where it's gotten better when I go.

But if you are a citizen of that city, I bet your education system before it shut down, thanks to Cove in Which we'll get to in a bit. I had the education system was not particularly good. Not particularly helpful in preparing Children for the future. But the Very much. All the social safety nets and fabric of society had been torn asunder by the left and the notice by the way. If you sit there, and you wonder how Democrats since the civil rights movement have been dividing people Think about the word community. I've talked about this a lot. It bears repeating because every every show there's there's new listeners. The word community when you were growing up. I bet you meant the people who lived next door to you. I bet you that's what it meant when you, you know, snuck your first beer. You were afraid that any adult would find you would see you do it or playing with firecrackers or something that any adult in your neighborhood would see you doing that. Why? Because that meant that your parents were likely going to find out. That was the community, the sense of community that we're all in this together. And we're all neighbors and friends, whatever had block parties and whatnot. Now Democrats since the civil rights movement Have bastardized the word community the same way they've bastardized just about every other word you can possibly imagine, as it suits their needs like preference. Remember when Maisy Hirono said. I'm saying sexual preference is offensive and then within three hours, dictionary dot com altered their definition of the word preference to say that it was offensive in regards To sexual preference, whatever sexuality Community became you should identify with someone who looks like you.

If you think that the Senate should have in place some traditions that protect the minority from just majoritarian rule within the Senate for a long time, then you should be in favor of the continuation of the filibuster. And just for a quick history lesson here. Remember who used the nuclear option the first time around. It was in fact Democrats, they did it over judicial nominees, and they did it while Republicans this was Harry Reid's gambit under Obama. He did it while Republicans were saying you're not going to like where this goes when power changes hands and sure enough as you have Amy, Cockney Barrett and Brett Kavanaugh and lots of federal judges all across the judiciary. Democrats have had to learn a very tough lesson on that one. But they haven't even really learned lesson because now they're decided. Well, we're back in power, so let's just do the same thing we did before. And I hope that we never have to deal with the consequences of that one. And that's I think a troubling situation that we're going to see now that Democrats president and history will be for gotten or or abused in the public discourse. The Democrats could get what they want. Maisie her ro No. Maisy Hirono who have said to you and I don't say this to be mean. I think there's just us. She may be the dumbest person in the United States. Congress. Yeah, exactly. And if you've ever heard her talking about anything you say, I cannot believe That this person is a United States senator, but but she is on day. I always say there's about about Hawaii. I love so much about Hawaii. I don't know why it has to have such bad politics. You know the big military community there, can we Here we get some slightly less loony candidate. I mean, told C. Gabbert's a congressman from Ohio from Hawaii. Not a while on and you know she has She has her her pluses. So to be fair, but Maisy Hirono He's already setting out the narrative, which you could say Hope it, Buck. This is so dumb. Who's gonna know that they're going to say stuff like this. That Mitch McConnell using the filibuster to block Democrats from things is obstructionist play 20. Is Mitch McConnell uses the 60 vote requirement to be the kind of obstructionists that he's been for The last let so many years and I think we are going to need to revisit because we are the middle of pandemic. We're in the middle of an economic crisis, and we need to get things done. And if Mitch McConnell's purpose is to make sure that President Biden's agenda and priorities will go nowhere, then we are going to need to revisit this. That they filibuster issue. He can't use 60 votes to block every good thing that the Democrats want to bring forward to four vote in the in the Senate. Steamroll. Um, get ready for it. And when Democrats bust out the steam roller remember that it's for it's for Republicans own good. This isn't a nation. This isn't an issue where we get to. There's there's not two sides to this one. It's it's for Republicans own good that this has to happen. Um I don't know about that one. I'm gonna Well, I think I'm gonna throw a flag on that one. I think it's pretty clear that the Democrats are just power hungry and or rather rather power mad now. And so whatever they whatever they want to do, they'll find a way. Try to to try to justify this. On de Everything will also be justified beyond this backdrop of well, Look what Trump did Orange man so bad that anything we do now is not as bad. And if you want, uh, little level low I Q analysis of our political scene in the country right now from an elected official. You really can't do much better than Swalwell. The spy who shagged me, uh and and this is what he has to say. Play 11. Is constitutional. The Senate is steeped in tradition and custom, and I think it would be persuasive to them that they have actually done this before. They've held a trial for somebody who was no longer in office. And I think it's because the Constitution says that one of the secretary of war that's right Secretary of War Belknap, we'll all hear that name more than we probably want. It's because the founders put as one of the penalties, disqualification from office and because Donald Trump we know we'll do this again. Has such a disdain for democracy and disdain for public safety. We can't afford is a country to give him a chance to even come close to doing this again. Justifying the The ridiculous impeachment proceeding that's going on. Oh, yes, there was a secretary defense. To be clear. If we look at our history, there was a secretary defense who was impeached after you after was out of office. But this is a president. This is not a secretary of defense, and there are there are additional considerations for the country that one should Take into account here. This impeachment is well, let's let's talk more about it and what we're really seeing here. South Florida's first news with Jimmy Stuff alone weekday mornings at six. Are you worried.
"hirono" Discussed on 860AM The Answer
"It's about making Trump look bad and by extension, making his voters look bad, and by extension, making Republican Party look bad. That's what it's about. Trump was magnanimous despite what he said during the campaign. Joe Biden talks about healing. Are you kidding me? Here's what Hirono said. I think that they're certainly, uh, pulling back some of their outrage that they talked about after Daniel Riddick. So this is a typical of party that does not want to take responsibility. And the fact is that this trial will give the Republicans a chance to after hearing the evidence, and we all experienced this This insurrection in real time, By the way, they will have a chance to decide whether inciting in his direction is any people a fence and Mitch Mitch Mitch Romney. Mitt Romney obviously believes it is and so we're gonna go for it. But the Other aspect of this trial is that we should make sure that this president cannot ever hold elected office again. And for that we need a conviction and we need to go through this trial. And I think we ought to also have hearings on whether not Maxine Waters when she told people to surround Trump Cabinet members. Let them know they're not welcome anywhere anymore. Was that some sort of incitement to insurrection? What about when Chuck Schumer stood outside the Supreme Court and said Gorsuch Cavanaugh, you will reach the world.

New Zealand shooting highlights problems of white extremism
"Just three months ago with reporters, the president said he hadn't read the New Zealand killers manifesto. So in on this Trump declined to weigh in on all of that. But as for the president's claim that white nationalism is not a rising threat. He may want to consider recent FBI figures and other studies showing right wing extremism is a growing concern from the neo-nazi violence on the streets of Charlottesville to the synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh last year. Now, the mosque attack in New Zealand, it is a threat wolf that cannot be denied. Absolutely, correct. Our Jim Acosta at the White House. Thanks very much. Joining us now democratic Senator maisy Hirono of Hawaii. She's a member of the judiciary and the armed services committees. Senator thanks so much for joining us. Thank you. Well, let's begin with the massacre in New Zealand. The president says he doesn't believe white nationalism is a rising threat around the world. How do you see it? Another instance, where the president doesn't pay attention to facts if act white nationalism extremism is on the rise. And in fact in after nine eleven president. Bush went to mosques and went to see the Muslims and hate crimes against Muslims dropped now with this president as he talks about a Muslim ban. And all of that, we know that hate crimes against Muslims in this country have gone up. Mr President, are you listening? Do you have any idea that your words truly matter? And so as he continues to. Act as though this is not a problem. Why is it that as a result of what happened in New Zealand that the mosques in our country are under heightened alert? Why is that? So I know that New Zealand is in mourning right now, they're in a state of shock. I did have a chance to talk with the ambassador to the United States from New Zealand ambassador banks, and I express my deepest condolences with her. And and we shared the concerns that we both have about the this kind of white supremacist extremists terrorism that is on the rise as you know, Senator several of your democratic colleagues. They've pointed the finger at President Trump accusing him of actually emboldening right wing extremism. Do you agree? I think the kinds of language and the words that uses just add fuel to the fire and so for him to take absolutely no responsibility for the continuing divisive. And hate the kind of language that he uses is is a testament to the fact that we have a president who just doesn't care about the words that he uses, but he must know that the worst. It uses are very harmful. That's why he does it. It really excites. His base. Apparently, did you see the interview he did with Breitbart in which he boasts that his base includes the police the military bikers for Trump by he was going out of his way to say, you know, the things get bad. There could be some serious problems down the road. What did you think of that? I thought of that as the appalling language coming from the president. And it seemed to be an invitation for people to take matters into their own hat hands. And and commit the violence. That's what it sounded like to me. And that's the kind of threat and the kind of language he likes to use. And to think that the that he thinks that our military is so undiscovered that they're going to commit these kinds of violence. But the fact that he says these things shows us where he is. At and where he's at is not bringing the country together.

According to official results. Former army captain Bolsonaro riding away, but indignation against corruption has forty eight percent of the vote with eighty percent of the votes counted. He needs fifty percent to avoid a runoff, President Trump's celebrated just Justice Brett cavenaugh swearing in. As the new supreme court Justice Democrats. Are regrouping and focusing on the midterm elections on ABC's this week. A key Senate Judiciary committee member Hawaii democrat maisy Hirono address, the cavenaugh confirmation there's going to be on the supreme court with a huge taint and a big Astra's after his name on ABC's this week counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway disputed Hirano's claim Justice cavenaugh should not be seen as tainted. He should be seen as somebody who went through seven FBI investigations, including Justin this last week, another one that was completed this past July had answered twelve hundred written questions had produced about a million pages of documents global news twenty four hours a day on air and a tick tock on Twitter powered by more than twenty seven hundred journalists and analysts in more than one hundred twenty countries. I'm Mark mills. This is Bloomberg. Doug. All right. I'm Doug krizner at Bloomberg interactive brokers studio in New York wanna let you know that the Australian market is up and running they've gone to daylight saving time down under the ASX. Two hundred is off one half. Half of one percent. William has is with us. He is co CEO head of research at PR. See macro, William always a pleasure to have you on the program. I'm curious is what do you make the PVC cutting the amount that banks have to hold in reserve over the weekend is triple are cut. How much has to do with concern about the economy, and how much has can does it have to do with maybe that the equity market falling out of bed potentially? I think both they're both related. I thank you know. So they they tried to downplay the need for this thing this interest. Swap out MLS maturity, isn't it? Also, some treasury deposits but realistically also over the weekend. We saw a major default in us. Bankruptcy of a major steel producer in Tianjin. So that that indicates that the credit narrative hasn't changed that we think the credit narrative is still driving the narrative in addition to the pen speech last week, and this kind of cloud hanging over a lot of industries in China. So we were expecting a triple are cut anyway. But I think after the speech last week, I think that kind of puts it up to the front of their agenda. How do you see this fitting in with the broader story about the trade wars this evidence that it's starting to bite for China? Well, yes. And I think the evidence is also indicating that this is going to go far beyond trade very quickly. And so the pen speech last week. I think it's something that people should really sit down. And listen to even though he's vice president. I think it's a very strong statement from the US and China's definitely taking it seriously. So what that setup is really, you know, an across the board clash of institutional values. And so it's very difficult to go from that to something that you just put into some numbers that reduces the trade deficit. So I think the signals coming out of Washington for a lot of a lot more beyond trade in the next year. So I think this is in the early stages of this whole process. It's interesting. We had a guest the last hour who's indicating that maybe the cloud would lift after the off term elections here in the United States. But I'm sensing that you think this is going to be kind of a protracted fight of sorts. Yes, I disagree with that view think what would pencil saying that this is, you know, I got a fundamental institutional clash, and so that's very difficult to back away from the oh, by the way, all those things are saying about China. They're no longer true. We're just talk about you know, soybeans. And and, you know, high tech stuff that doesn't make sense. So I think this is going to be a defining issue for for for Trump heading through this this first term, and assuming he's got to run for reelection that this is going to be something that he tries to seize on if only to distract attention from a whole range of domestic issues in the US. All right. Well, he when we continue the conversation, I'd like to talk a little bit about monetary policy, particularly from Chinese perspective and the degree to which they may continue to kind of manage the currency. We're seeing some weakness in the offshore Yuan right now at six ninety one thirty five William has his Cosio. He's head of research at PR. See macro, our guest on daybreak Asia.

Ebola: medics brace for new cases as DRC outbreak spreads
"I. evolve spreading to the Democratic, Republic of Congo conflict zone and. This is a scenario that, health officials have been dreading so a week, after the World. Health Organization said we're clear of latest Ebola epidemic this new one popped up. Which is why I would just say guys don't jinx anything just do not say an epidemic is done or a. Little. Outbreak has done don't say that because something always pops up and I understand you want tourists and trade and industry to calm down. Relax. But you, know a lot, of times, we speak too soon Well they say the, outbreak in. The, Democratic Republic of Congo has spread to a city surrounded by rebels they said creating. Challenger challenges that responders are dreading they said one probable case. Of one suspected case of emerged of the city, of OH in VR sees North. Kivu province and a we, chat self is not under rebel control Salama, Peter Salama who. Is World Health organizations emergency response chief said the city is entirely surrounded by. Territory held by a feared you Ugandan insurgent group known as the allied democratic forces so they say for the first, time. We have a, confirmed case in an area with high insecurity This is a problem we were, anticipating at a problem at the same time we were dreading Okay in order for, us to stop Ebola from local regional and then global spread you need to get in there. You need to be. Able to take control and you need to nip it, in the bud Well if you can't get in there because it's an. Area. Controlled by insurgents or a group that could possibly do harm to you an aid workers you hesitate and a. Day two days three days maybe weeks or months go by and evola can spread like wildfire They say large numbers, of civilians have been killed by unrest, around Oita, aid workers priest government employers are currently being held hostage thereby insurgents So how do, we, get in there to start to contain the outbreak And, if the insurgents are already killing civilians and you say guys you know Avala killing some of the civilians. Are they really going to be that open to letting people come in See I I I love negotiate guys look I, don't, want you, guys get the Abullah so can you let us get in their door staff or get the people out But you're not really supposed to call. Them evil people patients that are being afflicted. With alleged Avila suspected of anyway so this outbreak is the tenth to hit the DRC since one thousand nine hundred seventy. Six this remember, has been around since the. Seventies it's just the the biggest outbreaks happened back in two thousand fourteen in the two thousand fourteen to two thousand sixteen epidemic so this latest what. Began on August one so we're about twenty four days into. It and it's already killed sixty three people out of one. Hundred three confirmed or possible cases and Salama warned health workers were expected at least one additional wave of cases so. Now these cases of made containing the virus more difficult so how do they operate in, complex environments and u., n. teams are only allowed travel to. Each, with armed escorts so if the. Number, patients or contacts of patients in the city. Searches the logistical hurdles not only the cows the cost will mount according to CBS News and, so the World Health Organization. Has been criticized on its handling of the two thousand thirteen thousand sixty in west Africa epidemic and we talked about that that killed about eleven thousand. Three hundred people so we'll Health Organization has pledged to revamp. Its response systems what went wrong back then well I think. A lot of things I think we were in the throes of a politically correct movement and so when people you. Know suggested while let's quarantine let's not let people come to the United States if they, traveled there let's try, and examine them that you know the You know with I think people were hitting gloving because they. Didn't want to you know? They, didn't want to trample on anyone's rights they didn't want to be politically incorrect remember there was that. Nurse that was pitchy she ended, up being right but she was furious that our government quarantined her because she could have been. At risk of having A Bola and spreading it And she threw the, biggest fed and I don't blame her I wouldn't wanna be quarantined if I didn't have to but sometimes to limit an epidemic We sometimes have to do, some things that aren't very popular And, after we had that one gentleman that.
