The Coming, Lethal Threat to Our Republic No One Is Talking About
"This is one of those issues where all of a sudden 6 years from now. You might see a total change in the power in D.C. and you'll remember this conversation and you'll wish I wish I would have taken that more seriously. Why don't we take the maps more seriously? We're here with Tyler Boyer speaking on behalf of turning point action also he's the RNC committee men for the great state of Arizona. We only have about 5 minutes to go through this. Tile gets some immediate thoughts. Yeah, so just to the piggyback on the last conversation we were having. So just to put this into perspective for everyone listening, the redistricting process really started two years ago. Three years ago. So those of you that are feeling helpless now, you feel helpless because this really was happening two to three years ago and the insiders that managed this whole process, like I said in the state Arizona, it basically comes down to one person that gets to pick all the maps for the state because that one independent is the deciding vote. And so in a lot of states that where you're that way, you're going to feel helpless. So we're here to add some positive spin to it, which is how do we not feel helpless? How do we take control? Yeah, and I want to just kind of show the Democrats are mini celebrating right now. This is sleepy eye chuck Todd from MSNBC. MSN DNC, talking about, hey, the maps are actually looking pretty good. I just want to reiterate this. They're shocked. They can't believe it. They thought they were going to get clobbered, cut 90. Right now, with about half of the 2022 U.S. House district straw, Democrats are in a bit of a better position than they may be expected to be. According to the cook political reports, Dave wasserman, based on what we know so far, there will be a few more Biden won districts than there are now. How is this possible Tyler? Because I thought if chuck Todd is surprised about this, they were anticipating getting clobbered in this. Man, I hate seeing chuck Todd and just ruined your date, as I hear his voice. I miss Russia's p.m. SNP. I prefer that over DNC. But here's the reason why they're celebrating their many celebrating early right now because it's not over because a lot of these governors have to approve the maps and the Republican states. And so things could shift and swing a little bit. But they're excited because basically there was never an anticipation that redistricting was going to be awash. And it's, guys, I'm telling you right now, that's what's happened

Amanda Litman, Executive Director of "Run For Something" discusses the importance of down ballot races
"The Mandolin. Welcome to the PODCAST. I am so glad to be here. Thanks for having me so I read something really interesting last night I was reading through twitter. Of course only at night. That's what I do and there's a thread pincher twitter feed that caught my interest. You said something to the effect that you were talking talking to people and people have said to you about this year's upcoming election. They're just kind of focused. Their resources are energy and their time on trump and getting trump out of office. A what's what's wrong with that view view. Well I think it's It's it's wrong. I think it misses the bigger picture of what's at stake this year. Beating trump is important at. It's it's obviously a high priority it. We can't dismiss the importance of winning the White House both on a policy level and on a save American democracy level and it's not enough It can't be our priority as Democrats to the at the expense of everything else and what I've been hearing especially from donors this year not as much from volunteers which is great but especially from donors this year is that their money their efforts their energy is going towards things that stop trump. Yeah and that means that there are huge swaths of this ecosystem of this work being done that are under funded and under resourced and aren't going to be done in the way that they need to at a time when we have a chance to make huge progress especially on state and local government awry in. You know you're not the first person who runs an ORG that I've heard that from right that going into the general election. I think this happens a lot. You know every four years people start focusing especially early donors their their resources into the general election and that just kind of misses the point really important point so I just want to point something out about the power of down ballot races this so was it day before yesterday the Equal Rights Amendment was ratified in Virginia. And I think one of your alums run for something along. Jennifer carrol. foy Is a delegate in Virginia that she was a part of that process. Not just a part of it John was leading the charge on this and she is. I think she's incredible. We've been working with Jensen's she. I ran twenty seventeen I think people forget about her first election. You know it was twenty seventeen Virginia House of delegates. It was the first first big race after twenty. Sixteen she was running in a primary against a candidate who had run before and people wrote her off. They didn't think she could win. She was a black woman running in northern Virginia They didn't feel like it was possible for someone like her to take office. Not only did she win. She won her primary by fourteen votes like week or two after having given birth premature twins. Wow she is hard core. And you'll we were with her during that primary and then into the general when she flipped flip to see in the Virginia House of delegates. Red To blue She helped pass Medicaid expansion in Virginia in two thousand eighteen to ensure that more kids had healthcare just like her baby's I did and then when we met with her a little bit later after twenty eighteen. I guess she was like I want to take on the way and we said great. Let's do it so so. She did a bus tour across the state. She's been working really hard to ensure that there are the votes for it. She campaigned really hard to make sure that the Democrats are able to flip the Virginia House in Twenty nineteen gene and then she was the lead sponsor of the bill just earlier this week. Making Virginia the final state to actually finally ratified the equal rights amendment. It's so amazing. See not what is possible when you elect a Democrats that's amazing. I actually didn't know the depth of her story. That is amazing because I just did an episode on the IRA that was was a century in the making and the fact that run for something was behind a candidate who did all of that. I think that's amazing. In that in itself is a commercial for why we need to focus on these races. It's really remarkable. What happens when you elect the Democrats to offices where they can actually make a difference? You know one of the things. I find so fascinating as people. Tell me you know. My biggest goal is insert issue here. That's why I'm putting all my efforts towards winning the White House towards a House district like do you not see where the power comes from if basically every issue you care about the true levers of power happen in state and local government so whether its reproductive health or criminal L. Justice reform or voting rights or climate change or lgbt equality. Really any issue pretty much makes progress or gets defended at the state and local level. So another one of your alumni isn't a Tamie Sawyer in Memphis. I'm actually from Memphis. I grew up there so I interviewed her a few times. She's another powerhouse. I loved loved him. You saw her. She's in the city council. Right now ran for mayor another person who is going to make a big big changes in local politics in Memphis. Yes yeah. She's amazing we were so proud to be a part of her campaign and I know even though she lost that race. She's not done so I'm excited to see what she does next. Yeah so the thing is. Is that one party already. Does understand this. And that's the Republican Party. They understood this for over a decade that the power lies in these local races. They do focus on the Journal election. Obviously the White House in in governorships and stuff like that but they don't think that any rates is too small like from the school board to election. Birlik you've mentioned. Do you think that Democrats are finally catching up into between to that to that strategy. I getting closer. I think the deals you see is doing amazing work. I think the National Democratic Redistricting Committee is an incredible partner And I think it's not enough and I think it's not local enough even with all the work being done on state legislative races the best example. I've got here. Do you remember that New York Times article. I think it was maybe earlier or this week or last week. Time is a flat circle. That was talking about the textbooks in Texas. I California right right and was explaining. How like in California? It's sort of a broad ed more nuanced look at history versus Texas textbooks which are very dismissive of African American history in the United States and have Berries Pacific viewpoint around the second amendment. Things like that. The one thing. That article didn't get into that I think is worth pointing out is that that is an outcome. That is an intentional goal of the Republican Party. The the Republican Party invested millions winning the Texas State Board of Education which helped dictates that curriculum. In fact in some points in the process the Texas the State Board of EDUCATION GETS LAKE LINE ITEM veto power over these textbooks That's why Republicans controlled it. That's why Republicans spent money and invested did efforts to win it and what that does is teach Texas teenagers. If specific viewpoint of history breeding them to be more conservative voters It is both with a short term and long term impact of this work there. Republicans have understood. They have figured it to fuck out and important is because they see the longer picture and I hate to complement the Republican Looking Party. It's a bad party. Lease the elected officials in it are bad for the most part but their donors figured it out. They figured out early. They've been doing this for decades twenty thirty forty years So we have a lot to do to make up for that loss. Time am and there aren't too many groups who do the work locally the way that we do. I wish there were more so yeah no. You're absolutely right. You're as I was thinking the exact same thing that you just said that they are thinking about generations ahead. Children are reading these text books. They know exactly only whether it is intentional. Strategic it is long-term thinking it is understanding that the crazy person you elect to a city council today could be the crazy person a letter into a member of Congress tomorrow but that they've been crazy member of city council sort of gives them credentials. It's a breeding ground. So it's not just now policy policy. It's not just politics. It's the entire cultural impact in echo chamber that they have created to give themselves sustainable power and ultimately that's what run for something is all about is building being sustainable power for Democrats progressives because if we don't win these grass roots offices these local school boards water boards and community college boards. The rest of it falls house apart because it's not on a solid foundation. So let's talk about money where the money goes because this is another thing. They figured out that we have it. And I'm Kinda pissed about this one. So the coke brothers right. They've poured millions and millions into these down Belarus's right no racist too small for them. You know they'll put lots of money into a school board. If it means something but Democrats on the other hand you can and tell me. Maybe I'm wrong about this. Maybe this criticisms wrong. But you know we've got billionaires running in the primary running what appear to be vanity campaigns spending hundreds of millions of dollars Ads when if they were reinvest that in down ballot races. Maybe we get somewhere yeah. I've no disagreement here You know I hey. I have a very strong belief that if you are a billionaire or a KNOB billionaire it is your money to do with what you wish. If you think that's the best way to achieve your goals as running for president let go forth respectfully disagree. I don't think it's a good way to achieve your goal but I do think it's a symbol of how the Democratic Party has has sort of idolized allies. The presidency is the solution to our problems. You know that we have to billionaires running for president and not enough of them funding local offices like could you ask for a better metaphor it just. It drives me
Edward Norton Discusses His New Film 'Motherless Brooklyn'
"Everybody. I'm Peter Travers this popcorn where we tell you what's happening at the movies and there's a movie out now that I truly love called motherless Brooklyn which is written directed and starred my guest Edward Norton Great Devere then too long. It's been way too but I talk about long as long as I've known you which has has to be going on twenty years. We've been talking about mother. It was really you've been. That book came out. Jonathan Lethem's book came out and he said I'm going to do that. Yeah this is going to be. But it's finally here. Peter I told you I would and I did I did but you know I can't wait another twenty wanted to do it. But how do you feel now. Really good I when something's been rattling around your head for a long time it is it is nice to get it out. It's sort of like I relate. My character has to read syndrome and obsessive compulsive disorder and when he talks about having glass in the brain. And that's a little bit how this project was for me. It was like glass in my brain. I want. It was uncomfortable and I wanted to. I did want to get get it out but apart from that personal compulsion to see it through. I'm happy with the way it came out. Maybe maybe more than I usually am. Actually it's saying the things I wanted to say and I think maybe you commented on this. It's it's sort of. I don't think it would have had the resonance that that it has now ten years ago. Honestly We were talking about this before we started just the difficulty of course as he has commented on very eloquently. I think in his kind of elegy to the how difficult theatrical films have gotten how difficult it has gotten to release original theatrical films. It's it's always a struggle for filmmakers to make original Ville visions. It's always been you see the cast we had in this film. We have Bruce Willis and Willem Defoe and Alec Baldwin and Google about the Ron and Bobby Kennedy Volley in great great actors. But you still have to. You still have to sort of struggle to find the resources is you need to make it. And I wasn't and I didn't need them. Two hundred million easy. My I got all my actors working the free on my actors worked for nothing to help me get it made honestly but you still but you still have to still have to figure it out. Well there's so many things in terms of mother Louis Brooklyn about what you have to do even with a studio backing him. You have a movie that maybe they don't know what the title is. Maybe maybe they never read Jonathan's book it'd be they're saying what's it about right. I'll what is this and that money has to be poured into letting them know what it is. Ask because not presold been John Game. Yeah No to do the property those things and look in my case. I I was there saying look. I WanNa make a big old fashioned period epoch about New York in the vein of the Godfather or L. A. confidential confidential. or any any of these great old fashioned movie experiences I think demonstrably audiences really loved right when they're good. We all love of those films and and I wanted to mash it up a little bit with other another type of movie. I love which you also have a pure you know sort of the underdog the the forrest gump. The Rain Man That idea of a a hero. whose very unusual has an unusual condition edition? That you've never seen before that you feel empathy for and the empathy that you feel for him the the fact that you immediately. You're on his side. That's part of what that's what pulls you through. A murky. It takes is one of the nicest guys you've ever played. WELL HE IS I. I think he's well. It's funny and someone said to me you've done a lot of people with Conditions are afflictions. I said No. I've done a lot of people who are fating conditions or yeah like like primal fear baking the score with Deniro in American History X. There's no faking. He's he's just. He's angry mentally ill and the truth is this character. He's not mentally ill he. Just has he has terrip syndrome so people they call him freak show but he's he's smart and he's intelligent. He's he's susu sensitive. The great thing about watching this movie is that it takes awhile sometimes for you to say my brain isn't working like Lionel's right. Oh He's piecing together this puzzle in his own head his own synapses and we're trying to put a linear thing that isn't there. No Oh but I I actually the only thing that I just. I think that Agreeing in house district buys by a certain point story. I think when characters this goes back to like J D Salinger Holden caulfield and catcher in the Rye when sometimes when a character tells you his own story right from the start you you relate you feel the emotional hook and I think if you set that hook early with a character if in this case Lionel in a classic detective voice over where he tells you I have something wrong with me. I struggle with it. I I have friends. Who Understand? Me like Bruce Willis but not everybody does and it's it's tough. You know you start to go. Oh I inside this guy I understand him. You want him to do well. You don't want him to trip himself up. You're always reform. I I just think what you're doing you're saying I don't quite know how he's piecing it together doesn't tell you know and that goes to what you've done with Jonathan Lethem's book set in the late nineties but you send it back in time as through the fifty S. I don't think anybody ever knew what to read sets the well. That's what you just said is part of the reason we put it in the fifties the the the isolation the characters isolation not just in terms of other people being a little less sensitive calling him freak show But if you know that he doesn't even know what he has your even more sympathetic. It's it's it's even more isolating to not know what's wrong with you in some sense but the other thing was honestly Jonathan and I both really like those movies. The the the old fashioned atmospheric feeling of those noir films from that era. The novel motherless Brooklyn Brooklyn is very interior it's inside the characters head but obviously a film is a big a bigger canvas. You have you've got to create a landscape for people to look cat and it's great landscape. Yeah it's that whole fifties thing that's going on in New York and why. Why no is called called motherless Brooklyn Yeah you know why basically has nobody so no one looking for him? But he has Bruce Willis's character yes when a minutes boys so he he has something. And that's how this movie starts. It's about who killed my mentor. Who did this and then we get what to me? She has a real chinatown by. which is where's what's festering underneath this? It's not just who murdered character. What's going on? It's it's what's going on. Well you had the water in La. That was going on. You Know Chinatown chinatowns. Great because it's about La's original sin. It's not just about Out a mystery it's about the idea that La is built on crime. And that's and that's that's what I like about our foams. They they do. What you said is exactly right? It says hey they say hey yes. It's a certain mystery and a certain emotional relationship is driving why he's investigating but really what what this about is the more he he takes us into the shadow we realize there are things going on in what we call our democratic like Galateri in New York society that are violently antagonistic to everything. We say we believe in which we see through the out Baldwin Characters or Robert Moses type character master builder under a person that says I'm GonNa create the city to look like this and then cuts out anybody who's an outside anybody who is into one percenter right which which is what goes to the topicality. Yeah even now and was a racist t the total race. Yeah and I think that idea of the way that the way that we actually baked people talk about institutional racism but discrimination was literally baked into the Way New York was built into a modern city. They literally did do things like lower bridges to the new beaches. They overpasses they set them too. Low for buses is to clear them. Because they didn't want black and Latino minority citizens coming to the new public beaches so they literally limited access and people think that sounds like a conspiracy theory but it happened though it did happen and we see it and yet these are things that you have in your screenplay screenplay this book added to. Yes what was in the book right when you collaborate with somebody like Jonathan Right. WHO's a really terrific right? I really great writer. Is He with you on. I couldn't have done what I did on. This was bowled you could call it. Yeah but but he doesn't say what have you done. No no no no. I wouldn't do that without checking it out out with him. I I felt that I felt there was reasons to set it in the fifties. We talked about that. He liked that idea because he likes those films and I think he he knew is fill his book we had a certain Surreal Meta modernism. If you WANNA call it data it's really about the interior life of this character. He he wasn't so married to the plot per se. The plot didn't wasn't like the story of my family or the story of my city. It was it's a very Byzantine mazed. It's really an excuse to write the character in some sense. You know he also loves Raymond Chandler and you know those guys marlow at the detective. Active in Chandler with went through a couple of novels right so we kind of approached it like his great character going into another the next another another story in terms of taking a movie which you've described we've talked about it now and putting it on the screen. Do you worry about it reaching reaching an audience putting out kind of putting out work that you do that you you have a deep feeling for is always It's always got Certain emotional risk no matter how thick skin you get over the years no matter how many no matter how many you know. I've been through quite a few experiences like I'm getting a a nice honor from the camera. Image Festival in Poland this year. It's the Great Cinematography Festival right. And they sent me a rundown of the films they wanted to review in this thing. And it's amazing like at the top line of of those kinds of assessments of films. I've done that people think are really Definitive or something like that. You have like fight club. And he's always in there and the twenty fifth and American history x is always in there and none of those films did well.

"I just got a text from someone who says it looks like they believe that one campaign is spoofing oof in the cell phone number of the other candidate to make him look bad phillips angle to this is the Marcy Sacriston Philip Singleton race. is singleton has come under non stop stop attack from Sacriston just absolutely brutal attacks from her. She's in second place in his desperate to win. trying to motivate people single needs all the help he can singleton has come out and said he would oppose David Ralston as speaker which needs to happen. David Ralston needs needs to be a posed as speaker and Sacriston of course it's taken money from Dave Roulston so she's not gonna come out and opposing that's that's it's not a good situation. They continue to slam singleton with money. They've got money from lobbyists outside of the district strict pouring in to attack Philip Singleton and this is going to be one of those things where they want to beat him desperately to keep the speaker and they wanna say oh running against the speakers a bad thing running against the speaker. It's you you run against the speaker you lose. They're trying to make the speaker look like he's more powerful than he actually is and they're using in sacriston raced to do it a ton. Lots and lots of dollars are flowing into House district seventy one to help Mercy Saxon right now lots of money pouring into the district from lobbyists from legislators from the speaker and from others to try to make sure people think the speaker is not vulnerable and he es and all of these attacks they're accusing Philip Singleton of of actually being a closet Democrat. They're accusing him of being a right of their accusing him of harassing voters. They're accusing him of of everything under the sun short of murder they're accusing him and it's not gonNA help him. I don't think I think they're still GONNA lose. They're desperate. They're running a deeply nasty campaign but you got to understand the parameters show. The reason they're lying about singleton is because they need the media to shape narrative that you can't run against the speaker you see there are a lot of reporters in Georgia who want the Democrats to win next year. There are a lot of reporters in Georgia who really want the Democrats and they know the Democrats are going to use David Ralston because of the scandal of David Rawson protecting criminal clients they're going to use the Rawson scandal and it's cutting into your exercise time it stabbing you in the back nine and it's attacking your peace.

Dean Phillips' case for a carbon fee to tackle climate change
"Support for climate cast comes from Bank of America financing clean energy, initiatives and advancements in renewable energy and spurring innovation in and the growth of environmentally focused companies markets and jobs. Bank of America NA member FDIC, Representative Phillips, let's start with the nuts and bolts of the proposed carbon dividend act. What would it accomplish will Pol it's going to accomplish what I think we need most which is to provide incentives and disincentives, and then let the market move us to where we want to go which is to reduce CO two emissions and migrate to a clean energy economy. There seems to be universal agreement on that. And the notion that I'm co-sponsoring is the energy innovation and carbon dividend act. And it would put a price on carbon which is actually a bipartisan notion, I want people to know that the Genesis is as much Republican as it is democratic and in this case, we're proposing a fifteen dollar per ton fee on. Carbon and that would be entirely returned that the proceeds which could be about eighty billion dollars in the first year. I would be returned holy to taxpayers to the tune of about a thousand dollars per year for each family, and it and and the cost of fossil fuel products would rise as a result. For example, a gallon of gasoline may go up about thirteen cents based on the fee in the first year again that money's returned in the form of a dividend to all taxpayers, and it's a way to start putting a disincentive on further fossil fuel use and migrate to clean energy. I it's a simple notion. It's a market base notion. It does not grow government, and it reduces our carbon emissions, and that is exactly the type of policy thoughtful bipartisan policy that I think we need. So here's a clip from your press release quote carbon dividend trust fund for the American people to encourage market-driven innovation clean, energy technologies and market. Efficiencies. So we create this fund is your proposal. And then the money goes into that fund. What are some examples than of how that fun would be used to drive more technology that could help lower greenhouse gas emissions? So so pollen in this case all the money in this proposal that I'm co-sponsoring all the dollars would go back to American citizens. And and that's what's unique about it. It does not grow government. And it does not provide more dollars to federal programs, for example, and and those dollar what people do with those dollars of courses up to them. I of course, I think it will spur investment, and it will create a number of millions of perhaps over two million green energy jobs, but it's not a trust fund to benefit any thing or anybody other than tax payers right now. Now, I will say I'm also giving some thought to whether or not we should modestly increase that that fee and direct some of the proceeds to an infrastructure Bill as you might know. Speaker Pelosi and mature minority leader Schumer met with President Trump in the White House this week, they agreed on a two trillion dollar infrastructure plan that right now has no funding. And I think this could be an interesting way to accomplish both because we surely need both you mentioned by partisan support. Do you think you'll get the necessary votes to get this through and perhaps make it law? We'll tell you Paul nothing as you. Well know, nothing is easy and congress, but that's a challenge that I'm taking seriously, and and very optimistic about and this is a unique Bill in that it has a number of cosponsors everyone from Barbara Lee who is one of the more progressive members of the democratic caucus to Francis Rooney the Republican from Florida, it's a notion that the American Enterprise Institute, the conservative think tank supports and even supported by George Shultz and Howard Baker former secretaries of state who devised a very similar plan with their group called the climate leadership council and it. Is it is remarkably bipartisan, and it's one that I think I think it is the most likely to generate support on both sides of the aisle. But like anything else it has to be sold. It has to be promoted, and we not just those in congress. But we in our communities have to start promoting the solution to one another. We're going to build a consensus to get it done. We've seen tremendous progress Representative Phillips in reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the electric power sector. We see Minnesota producing twenty five percent of our electric power from renewable 's it seems like the biggest opportunity now for further reductions is in transportation, how does America achieve similar reductions in the transportation sector over the next decade? Why favor first of all I favor. Notions li-. I think we should have a prominent very innovative high speed rail network in the United States our competitors around the world have surpassed us broadly. So doing would significantly reduce emissions and also. Provide a very high speed very connected America too many who right now don't have access to transportation. And then this this notion of pricing carbon begins it provides disincentive to consume fossil fuel. So it will in theory, reduce force both businesses and individuals to look for more efficient, modes of transportation. And this is this is a way to begin the migration. It is not a mandate. It is not an iron fist at a simply putting a price on something that has a significant cost to us now in an extraordinary cost down the road. And that's because it's market based the market should figure it out. And I'm a believer in that. And it will so ill do the same in transportation. I'm curious about the political winds in the Republican party in Washington DC, some of your colleagues in the congress, we hear some people voicing more support and more understanding that these extreme weather events. On the rise. And that that's turning costly for us. Do you sense that even behind the scenes, what will your colleagues say to you in terms of how they are viewing the current climate change situation and how we might be impacted by that going forward. We'll pollen it's becoming undeniable. And if people wish to argue the reasons why they can do so, but it is time that we acknowledged truth. We'd take some bold stands, and I can tell you in my private conversations with of course, democratic colleagues in an increasing number of my thoughtful Republican colleagues, you know, we acknowledge what's going on. And it is affecting deeply effecting American communities throughout the country from the heartland to the coasts, and it's real I'm sure that in no small part Francis, Rooney from Florida, the Republican from Florida is supporting this notion because he sees what's happening in his state with that said it takes leadership, and it takes consensus to get this done. I in and my hope is that our Republican colleagues. Start lining up to support something that again has some has Republican Genesis, and that means pricing carbon and letting the market take charge. That is actually the way we build bridges and congress and throughout this country. So I'm hopeful we're not there yet. But it's these conversations both on the airwaves in neighborhoods and called the sank. So we have to start having. Let's talk about opportunity a change even climate change can sometimes bring opportunity one example, this jobs, boom that we've seen with renewable energy could climate change solutions. Be our next economic moonshot. I think there's no question. Some studies indicate that if we pass this Bill the energy innovation and carbon dividend act that that could spur over two million new jobs. I think that will be happening anyway because we are migrating. The good news is we have thoughtful enterprises around the country. Excel energy is taking a bold stand to invest in renewables in no small part because we provided in. Enters over the last number of years for them to do the same thing. So I do I think I think we're on path. And I think there's an opportunity here that every state whether it's a red state or blue state can recognize that not only will these green energy jobs be more prevalent, but they will be high paying jobs, and if we can create a thoughtful strategy as Americans to provide the right training to young people to enter this enter these new jobs that are created everybody wins, and there is a way to do. So and I can tell you also as a new member of congress I've been very pleased with the clergy -ality between members of both sides of the aisle, especially in our freshman class. And I think there's a new ethos a new spirit, and I think over time we are going to join hands and build a better economy and most importantly, reduce our emissions and preserve our planet for children, grandchildren. We're seeing shifts in climate change opinion. Now, Yale and George Mason study says now that six in ten Americans are either concerned or alarmed. About climate change. What do you hear from Minnesotans about the desire for climate change action? I hear every day from people throughout our state. Not just in my district that this is important to them. And I'll tell you who's making the most difference in congress right now. It's young people. We see young people from middle schoolers through high school and college students in the halls of congress all the time coming to our offices and making very impassioned pleas that we do something. And that makes me optimistic you know, Minnesotans have taken have taken conservation seriously for many years, we we love our environment. It is not political. And I think Minnesota can be a real bellwether state for the rest of the country in in leading that change. But as Americans we are very good at often pointing out at least from a policy perspective where we're quite adept at pointing out problems now is the time for solutions. And I'm one who wants to listen to any solutions. I don't care what the Genesis is Minnesotans are the same way. We listened to the. Ideas, we tend to implement them. And I think we I hope the country will look to us and I wanted to be a leader. And that's my intention. We have a lot of successful fortune five hundred companies based in Minnesota, and I've interviewed several executives from those companies take a company like general mills it's been around for one hundred and fifty years and they used to produce their grain by milling with power from the Mississippi River and they're moving forward on climate solutions. We see this with a lot of companies, in fact, that momentum seems to be much stronger than the momentum in Washington. Is there a disconnect there, and do you think your colleagues that have been reluctant are seeing these corporations move forward and his that possibly an example for them. They there's a disconnect pollen and I recognize it as well. And I've spoken with a number of CEO's of our state's largest enterprises and reminded them of of not just their responsibility. But the opportunity that exists for them to influence policy makers, and that's happening. And I could the list of. American corporations and multinational corporations that support the notion of pricing carbon would surprise a lot of people, including some of the biggest energy companies. So that is a massive opportunity. And by by the way, that's part of a bigger conversation about business being the sources a source of solutions for this country and not the source of problems. And you know, I wanna see this country move to compassionate capitalism, and what a wonderful and beautiful way to start with affecting climate change policy. And I do see the day coming and I'm speaking with a number though, CEO's both here and around the country, and I'm hoping we can mobilise finally the house passed a Bill I believe this week that would keep the US in the Paris agreement. What are the chances of that given the landscape of the Senate and the White House these days while given the landscape of the Senate and the White House? Unfortunately, the answer is unlikely and it's appalling, the the United States of America should be not just at the table, Paul. We should be leading that is the America in which I grew up. It is what I aspire to. And I will say though that the the power to proceed if you will really lies in in the hands of of every American to remind the representatives, not just in Washington, but in their own state houses that this is important, and that's the that's the type of American leadership. I want to reconstitute realestate. And I I do think we're going to get there. I don't think in this congress because of the circumstances in the Senate and the White House, but over time we shall this is a statement of principles. That's the statement of the democratic party's principles that this is important, and I also see foresee that climate change and addressing it with thoughtful policy is going to be one of the big drivers of the twenty twenty election. I hope it is deserves to be because I think it's an existential threat and not just to this nation, but surely to the entire world US house district. Three Representative dean Phillips. Thank you for your perspective on climate cast today. Thank you very much.
"house district" Discussed on WBSM 1420
"Wants to come and give the state of the union the state of the union has not been good and he's been divisive. And I think he's putting us all in harm's way. And so he's not worthy of being listened to. I don't know why anybody. You want to pay attention to anything that he has to say I'm sorry about the beat under there. But that was an interview for essence they beat that. We could not remove the music came with it the music came with it with the interview that is not us that is that is. That's my engineer. I didn't even prep you. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I didn't prep you for that. Doc will she lives in Chris. I just couldn't help. But wonder what are the criteria? She's using too to measure by it's not it's not any economic criteria. Unemployment is down black unemployment specifically as down here the district. She represents is is heavily African American unemployment is way down in the black community. That's not good. That's not a good state of the union GDP growth said that the Donald Trump is endangering us again people say these things, but it's it's a fact free zone. What's the danger? Exactly here danger of getting a getting getting higher. Wages fact. I'm just writing this down. Sorry. Guys fact free zone. I like that. Question. Do you think she believes it? I actually do think she believes that. I do think that I think some of these people that some of these there are people who I think are really they're operators. And they know what the rhetoric is. They can use. And they play at it personal gain. They're up at the there's another group of people who are true believers, they never get outside. That's on there. Maybe have shall we say a loose hold on reality. And Maxine Waters. I think is one of those people has a pretty loose grip on reality to begin with. And so she is particularly endanger of believing these sorts of things I think that's probably a sound diagnosis let let's move to this evening's events. If if you were Stephen Miller for a day, or if you're one of the other two individuals why no right? The president's domestic speeches. I get loads, of course, here America first where people say he should just stand there for two hours and read the quotes from Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer on immigration back from two thousand and six when they said, build the wall illegal immigrants are bad, and he should just quote them and make them look bad. I like it as a device, but it is the state of the union. What should he be talking? Should it be a grand accounting of everything? Or should he be just hitting the issue of the wall? What's what would? Do you like to see tonight? Well, so I I love that idea of just reading Nancy truck and dancing back to check a Nancy just for the trolling value. But it's probably not the best use of time. And what I really think that the president ought to be doing is is presence always at least in the modern era have done in states of the union when they've been at their best, which is the needs to be coming back to the big themes of the presidency and tying those back to the particular policy points, the agenda items that they want to execute on. Remember, we're halfway through the president's first term here. This is almost a pivot point now where he's going to be turning his attention to the to the reelection campaign. And so I think he needs to really developing unifying theme. So we know the big items that have been on the president's agenda talking about things like immigration and border security trade foreign policy rebuilding the middle class. I think he needs to unify all those things together. And explain how all of these things relate to exactly what I just said, which is rebuilding the middle class and the working class. Why is it that immigration policy and border controls important for working families? How does it make their lives better? Why is it that trade policy makes protects middle income working class jobs? Why is it that we want to be more circumspect about about the wars? We fight abroad. Why I saw this really interesting fact this morning, I was reading something else you if you look at the house districts, the President Trump won by the most margin. There is a almost a one for one correlation to the number of casualties suffered by by constituents in the Iraq, Iran war, meaning more more casualties higher vote higher margin for Trump fascinating. Yeah. Interesting. And so all of these things tie back to how do we just make middle America better off, again, the the Democrats have become the party of the rich? And I think that Donald Trump needs to pound that point and say, look, Chuck and Nancy can be all about Wall Street that can be all about the fortune five hundred I'm for small business. I'm for families. I'm for making America better again by growing the broad middle is this why how Scholtz former CEO Starbucks who truly is a self made billionaire is why he's so dangerous for the Democrats. Absolutely. I think absolutely that. I mean, you see all these stories they are going to dump all kinds of opposition research on him. They're gonna do everything they can to get him out of the race. Why? Because he's the he's there Trump in a certain way. I don't think he has the I don't think he has the charisma Trump. I don't think he has that wreath to the retail politics down, the Trump has, but he represents that that that seems sort of critique from the left for Democrats that Trump represented as a critique from the right for Republicans fabulous. Rasmussen very interesting poll just came out with regards to the president's total approval rating, which they've matched against the same period of the first term for President Obama, President Trump is at forty eight percent approval. When President Obama was at forty six. Six does this mean that twenty twenty a shoe in Chris cook a shoe in? No, I think there's a lot of work to be done. Now. I mean, remember the all the apparatus of? What I would like to call the high places of our culture, the university the school system, the permanent state will we sometimes called the deep state. The media are all lined up against Donald Trump, and he caught them off guard in two thousand sixteen they will be more prepared for Donald Trump and twenty twenty can you win. Of course, he can because he's also been very fortunate in in his enemies. And then the candidates that have been run against them, both as Republicans and Democrats can you win. Yeah. He can. But it's going to be a fight, and it's gonna be a fight right down to the bitter end. So you're not optimistic. It's going to be real trench warfare. I think it's going to be trench warfare. Y'all long hard slog has some people like to say good. Well, Chris bus cook. Read his.
Who is eligible to be a US citizen?
"Some of those loopholes are like catch and release some of those some of those loopholes are are in other categories. There are things that human traffickers actually used to entice vulnerable families to make the long and dangerous trip north of the peninsula often at great risk to themselves. And and frankly birthright citizenship is a part of that. And what I think the president's made clear is that we are looking at action. That would reconsider birthright citizenship, we all know what the fourteenth amendment says we all terrorists the language of the fourteenth amendment. But the supreme court of the United States has never ruled on whether or not the language of the fourteenth amendment subject to the jurisdiction thereof applies specifically to people who are in the country. Illegally. And I think the president's looking at executive action under the Congress's looked at legislative action to reconsider that. But but are broad objective. Here is we need to we need to fix a broken immigration system. That that's being used by by people who literally are exploiting vulnerable. People enticing them to make this long journey north to our border in the hopes of coming into our country illegally. And we need to have a system where people know how to come into the United States legally, and that we have a system that's working for the American people first, and that it's working on an orderly way like it did for my grandfather when he came through asylum when he was twenty three years of age from Ireland. We the system isn't working today. Jake and we've got to reform it it pretty drastic action to to do that unilaterally. The president doing the by himself. Well, I'll leave it to the president too. Announced whatever actions, we'll take another president yesterday. Made the decision that we're deploying fifty two hundred troops to our southern border. There's already two thousand national guard there now we're gonna we're gonna have the troops there to support border patrol agents says his caravan continues to make its way north, but also as the crisis of illegal immigration on our southern border continues. But in terms of changes in the law in terms of executive action. I don't want to get ahead of the president. But you can look back at that famous speech in Phoenix that he gave about immigration reform, and he spoke about us taking on this issue and taking on other issues in a way that we can we can have a debate about having an immigration system in America. That's working this working for the American people first, and that includes reexamining this whole issue of birthright citizenship from earlier in the day here in Washington, vice President Mike Pence and join us on the phone is John Wagner, national political reporter for the Washington Post can the president do this. Well, that's been the question of the day. I suppose. An interesting development. Is that house speaker Paul Ryan kind of way down essentially saying, no that this is not something you can do by executive order. Democrats have been pretty United in saying that as well. And among other Republicans there's been a bit of advice, then why is the president doing this? What is this all about? Well, I think it's fair to view it in the context of midterm election being. About a week away. Now, and this is certainly consistent with other things. The president has done to try to put the immigration issue front and center, the White House, really believe. So this is an issue that will drive car out among the president's base. And that's something they feel they truly need to boost their numbers in a number of competitive house district. So that they have a chance of Republicans have a chance of maintaining the house and has this been tested by the courts. Not the precise question. I mean, there have been cases strongly suggesting that the fourteenth amendment does offer. This status to children born in the United States of legal permanent residents. There's a more more of a question, I suppose among those of undocumented immigrants that that question has never been specifically ruled upon van allusions to it in some of the previous rulings. So. Goes it doesn't look like there would be a quick solution. Either. The president would issue the executive order and that would get litigated litigated through the courts. Or if you try to amend the constitution that is obviously a fairly cumbersome process, and in that interview with axes, which will be airing on HBO this weekend. He said, basically, the US the only country that does this calling it ridiculous. Is that the case is that true or false? That is not the case. There are thirty three countries with similar policies including the United States in Canada. So it's certainly not majority of nations, but the United States is in in good company on that count. So bottom line where does this debate head next? I think that's a really good question. You know, there are certainly those who think that this is a debate that the the White House wants for the next week to try and turn the conversation back from some of the terrible events of the past couple of weeks to immigration, which the Republicans believe is is their strong suit. Whether it content continues and artists beyond that. I think is anyone's guess at this point and more details at Washington Post dot com. John Wagner, national political reporter thank you for being with us. And we'll have more on the border issue. And the caravan coming up in the program more than a thousand people though pouring into one of Pittsburgh's largest synagogues to mourn, the two intellectually disabled brothers who were killed in Saturday's massacre rabbi Jeffrey Meyers says seasonal David Rosenthal, where the very definition of beautiful souls at their funeral. Rabbi Myers was inside the tree of life synagogue, Saturday morning when the shots rang out and he survived the attack. He will officiate five more funerals for the victims of his congregation. The Pittsburgh post gazette is writing extensively on all eleven victims and their life story. The oldest was ninety seven years old. And they posted the comments of staff. Sergeant KENDALL Newby who paid his respects to those who lost their lives. I'm born and raised from Pittsburgh. I'm here. A lot of friends who are deeply hurt. My tragedy. And. Disgusting thing. These statements are of my own. They are not. Military macaroni. For snacks. To anybody was hurt by it. Was deeply troubled by it. And I can't offer rain wisdom to the whole thing. The only thing I can say is that us is burgers just to stay positive to be a bright lights in the face. No matter what happened to great tragedy that I think this is going to be one of the great moments that we show that we stand ups taller, and we come back stronger than what we are. And we don't let things like this as Americans as people. Black white Jewish Christian, Muslim, whatever it is that you are if you're in this town in Europe person, you show love towards somebody else at great brightness and be positive change. Even for one person in her game, that's showing great strength beyond. What we have right now can deluce is
Trump Plans to End Birthright Citizenship in U.S.
"President Trump is considering an executive order that would end the automatic right to US citizenship for children born to non US citizens. Trump's thoughts on the matter came to light via an interview with axios made public on Tuesday. But legal experts say such a move would be unconstitutional. Joining us now from Washington with more details is Wall Street Journal reporter Aaron Zeltner Aaron in that interview with axios. Trump mentioned a process here and said it would happen with an executive order. What details do we know at this point about the plan? Will not much as we move toward the election. The president has floated a couple of things that seem to be signaling about intent rather than fully fleshed out policy proposals. The other big example would be his talk about a big new middle class tax cut, which he said would be passed in November. But congress isn't even in session till after the election. So these are kind of statements of intent or general direction, and we don't have any details about the substance of the order, but we, you know, no his intent through it would be to end what's called birthright citizenship Aaron about how many children approximately would something like this affect and what the latest polls show about whether American citizens support it. Well, the numbers vary by year from a maybe about two percent of all US births being from people here illegally to seven percent. According to you in two thousand fourteen it was two hundred seventy five thousand children born to people who are here illegally or seven percent of all US births, and we did pull on this about a year ago September of two thousand seventeen and found that people support birthright citizenship by about two to one. It was about sixty five percent in favor of continuing the principal. Thirty percent wanted to end it and it varied by party, Democrats and independence strongly support the principle birthright citizenship, Republicans were narrow Lee opposed. Fifty two percent wanted to end it and forty two percent said continue it what about the legality of a move like this. What did experts tell you about whether or not this is Constan? Traditional. Well. This has come up as a legal matter before courts for more than a century. The issue lies in the fourteenth amendment which says all persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof. Our citizens that's been read by the courts as far back as eighteen ninety eight as saying all persons born and naturalized our citizens means that if you're born here, no matter to whom you are a citizen the challenge to this. And what lawmakers who have proposed legislation to overturn birthright citizenship say is the language in the fourteenth amendment says all persons born here and subject to the jurisdiction of the United States. They point to that language and subject to the jurisdiction of the United States. And they read that to say, well, if you're here illegally, you're not subject to the jurisdiction of the United States. That's the argument they put forward courts have rejected that and others would say, well, if you're here illegally, we expect you to follow US laws, so in that sense, you're subject to the jurisdiction of the United States. You can't come here and break our laws and so- arguing that somehow that portion of the amendment excludes people born here to a legal immigrants is fallacious. Aaron the Trump administration has already taken a pretty hard line on immigration. This comes as the administration plans to send some five thousand U S troops to the border with Mexico and news of the plan to end birthright citizenship comes a week to the day ahead of the midterm elections. How are both sides of the aisle responding to this will the president clearly believes his best political advantage is to emphasize the issues that are important to his core supporters. We know that the people in the voter pool most aligned with Trump agree with him on building a border wall. And they agree that they should there should be stepped up deportations of people here illegally. The political question is whether these things help him build a coalition beyond his core supporters, and because a midterm election is about different geographies. It's waged house district by house district and state by state what excites voters who are. Court to the president support and some states is going to alienate voters and other states. And if you're in a swing district in say, southern California outside San Diego or outside Denver outside New Yorker outside Washington DC, which are where some of the most competitive races are being waged the language on illegal immigration that the.
