"jack beatty" Discussed on On Point with Tom Ashbrook | Podcasts

"In popular government rules regulations there you really have to change the subject and entities help a lot. You. Describe the strategy of Republicans over the last thirty, forty years of Republican base building consists of the three Rs. Resentment. Racial Ization and vote rigging. Can you talk about that Jacob? Sherzer resentment we've talked about and clinical scientists have a term of art for racism. They call it racial resentment and and part of the reason is that lots of people who will respond to racial appeals. Art Aren't thinking explicitly racist thoughts They're really they're really sort of feeling resentment did generalized towards. Urban America towards government towards politicians who are. Wasting their money on programs that help people who don't look like them, and so we want to be careful not to always think that that's explicit racism even though for some voters it is. So. That's the resentment side of it and the local scientists I think who's done more than any to sort of draw this out his cathy, Kramer? Who has written about this sort of rural consciousness and a density that develops as the Republican Party becomes more and more reliant on non urban voters. But what about racial is Asian and rigging? So I mentioned rigging earlier, right vote rigging is a tried and true way in which conservative parties have tried to make up for the fact that they have a hard time getting the votes of the non rich and we've talked about extreme partisan gerrymandering. We talked about various kinds of voter suppression and we should just mention are at least I should mention that the overall system is very jilted towards rural. America as well the Senate for example, you know with its chew senators for every State no matter how the how low population the State is on but let me mention racial. Clothing So this is really the the atwater genius. Right? Is that if you can get people to think about race serves subtly or subconsciously when they're thinking about government or Democrats, or or certain policies like welfare, then you don't have to say the quite out. Loud right. You can and I think this racial ization has been very important in helping the Republican Party demonized government even as it is gained control of. What Jack Beatty to you know George W Bush's compassionate conservatism. You'd know Karl Rove emphasizing Latino voters pitching a wider tent. You know the need to sort of outreach You remember those moments I mean, how does that fit into all this that period of time? Well it seems to me. Rove headed right about the demographic future that the Republicans had to get right with the changing population and he recommended and Bush pushed a comprehensive immigration reform and they brought it to a vote and the the right wing populist essentially defeated it the talk radio, the talk of amnesty and all the rest, and and then, and then this same proposition came up after the two thousand twelve election in the famous autopsy the Republicans did and they're there to say, we gotta get right with the future. But what happened again another right wing populist. Radio Talk Radio whipped up frenzy a killed. Immigration reform again. So the Republicans have been able to get right if you will with with where the democracy is going and therefore they they're almost forced back on more and more You know super majorities in the Senate minority rule devices ballot Try to restrict the vote because they their their party is out of step with the future Let me take it back to Newt Gingrich, who of course, lead that ground breaking wave of conservative power in Congress starting in Nineteen ninety-five implementing the contract with America among other things. But near the top of his priorities was axing welfare programs for the country's neediest in nineteen ninety-three, he spoke about that ambition at an event sponsored by the Christian Coalition. Well I eight is not failing because it lacks money the welfare state is failing because at its core it is wrong about the nature of human beings. Jacob Packer. You look at four decades of of political connection points in your book You know we've talked about as far back as nineteen eighty eight. When did all this take hold? There's Newt Gingrich. We've talked about atwater and Bush where did this all start? Well I mean of quarriers, the the beginning seeds of the racial backlash that that flower into plutocratic apples and goes back to the nineteen sixties by but I think you're you're playing gingrich is is really appropriate because it was it was gingrich. Really I think brought the party to this contempt toward this contemporary marriage of Organiz money and organized outrage. So Remember that George H. W Bush who had run the Willie Horton ad was pretty moderate Republican on economic issues and in nineteen ninety. Raised taxes help close the deficit and Gingrich's break from from Bush was over that tax increase mom which he said was a you know at odds with what the Republican Party should become an. So he laid out a vision was of the party that would be fighting the culture war though not perhaps as aggressively as some within the party wantage and would be pursuing a big tax peds for. The absolute as well as regulation and other things, and you know we remember him now as kind of bomb thrower. But we forget that he was a huge rainmaker for the Republican Party. He's figured out how to create a machine that could raise enormous sums of money from the increasingly rich Americans. An increasingly consolidated corporations that regaining Powell and Just you know one way to think about this is. Debt win he handed off power to people like. Bill the Tom Delay and then John Bainer. What they were, what they pursued was of what what delayed called the case street project rights was kind of loyal cadre of lobbyists. Right? That would support the Republican Party and then in turn will get to write the rules and that was a see changing in the Republican Party and Gingrich was central to. So Jack Beatty are we now deeply entrenched as we're hearing the history here deeply entrenched in? This is plutocratic populism of which Jacob Packers speaks here to stay. Well the next election may be a test of it. If the Republicans Jacob I think is right as saying suffer a severe enough defeat they may have to rethink their their Pluto, the Pluto part of their populism, and maybe become more genuinely populist as as indeed candidate trump brand. In Two thousand sixteen. Jacob Hacker Jack Beatty stick with us were discussing the evolution of an unlikely political ally alliance in the Republican Party between the nation's most prosperous and the working class much more ahead, Jane? Clayson. This is on point we'll be right back..

The 'On Point' Iowa Caucus: Where Do Voters Stand?

"This is on point Magneto Birdie. We're doing something a little bit different this hour. Were experimenting with an on Point Mini Caucus. Because the Iowa caucuses or about three weeks away now and so we're kind of we've created this metaphorical room in our minds. Eye Radio version of a Iowa precinct. Here and seeing what Iowa voters think as they look towards basically casting their first votes In this presidential election season we started out the hour hearing from supporters of Senator Elizabeth Warren and Senator Bernie Sanders before the break. We I heard from two neighbors in Cedar Rapids Iowa. Who won who was all in for Mayor Pete Buddha Judge and another and Solomon who is still going to stand the corner for Cory Booker and wait to see who might convince her to move somewhere else and now? Let's talk about people tussling over Vice President Joe Biden. Here's the moment yesterday from the Democratic presidential debate in Des Moines. Where former vice president Biden really noted his broad support? He said that he has nationally so here he is look. I've been the object. She's affection now more than anybody else. I taken all the hits. He can deliver. And I'm getting better better in the polls my going up and by the way I have overwhelming support from the African American community overwhelming more than everybody else in this operation Vice President Joe the last night and when he said I've been the object of his affection now more than anybody else on the stage. The vice president was referring to President. Donald Trump. Let's go to Jane Who's calling from Fairfield Iowa Jane. You're on the air what who do you think you're going to be caucusing for thank you very much for your show My my husband and I have had The same issues as I think it was very league. Who wasn't sure who she was going to vote for In the caucuses who she was gonNA side with And Our experience was that there were a lot of good ideas out there that you know when we went to see each candidate we thought yeah. That's a good idea. Or that's a good idea. And that's a good idea and then about two weeks ago we went into See Joe Biden in Grinnell and we realized by you know listening to him being with him. Yeah that we were for sure going to call 'cause for him and The reasons I mean I know I have to be sync but One thing is that he can take the reins of the government immediately He doesn't he's completely capable. Oh and he's he's He's very cogent. His answers were extremely informative and comprehensive comprehensive. He's very competent and other reason is that he he wasn't ranking about anything he was. We felt much better or from being with him because we feel that the ideas presented by most of the candidates will find their way to policy in the united the states. But this is a man who is kind is only mentioned his generous of heart and he's very competent. So we I feel like he has the best chance of unifying that country anything else important. It's unify the country's right. Well Jane thank you so much for your call. Let's go to Robert. WHO's calling from Grinnell Iowa Robert? You're on the air. Hello yes we're we are definitely definitely caucusing for Bernie the last time around we caucus for burning. We knew eight at vowed. Second Amendment voter never voted re- democrat in his his life he caucus for Bernie. It was about healthcare Bernie is willing to make changes. People voted for trump. Because they wanted a change they. I didn't want things as they were. Which is what Hillary is not going to change anything? They wanted changes so they voted for trump. Because it was it it was a vote for either no change or vote for change and they voted for trump. That's why we've caucusing for Bernie Bernie is willing to change things. So that means that you definitely wouldn't caucus for senator. Sorry doing that. Vice President Joe Biden not definitely not Biden. Okay okay. We'll Robert. Thank you so much for your call now. Okay we've heard from various folks who have their mindsets on their on their candidates but it turns out that about right now in Iowa. Iowa seems as if undecided voters undecided. Iowans might be forming the biggest block of Iowa caucus goers. Let's talk to go back into our own point caucus caucus room and talk to to currently undecided Iowans. The Real Wenzel joins us from Waterloo Iowa. She's Laura's director of marketing for Ymca of black of county and is currently decided perhaps leaning towards Andrew Yang Laurel. Welcome to you. Hello it's great to have you and also also from Cedar Rapids Iowa. Tom Fuller joins us. Tom is a retired maintenance supervisor. For the city of Cedar rapids. Tom Is currently undecided. As well did did have his heart on senator or his mindset on Senator Kamala Harris before she dropped out of the race so Tom Welcome to you. Okay so Laura let me ask you first here here. Whoa what's keeping you undecided right now? What have you not found in any of the candidates that you feel like you can throw your full support behind a unifying presence? I think is what I don't see in any of the candidates especially last night on the debate stage age. I was really disappointed that there is nobody that was wanting to come by Ya with the rest of the candidates and be like. Let's do this together because is inevitably. That is what is GonNa Happen. Ray Inevitably we're GONNA have one candidate and it's going to be Democrat versus Republican. But I don't feel like anybody is on the same page on that stage and it's frustrating. Because I want a unified spirit within the party which is why I go to caucus because I go to caucus for the policies of the Party as well as the policies of the individual. Okay so tom you actually truly still undecided or you kinda trying to be leaning one way or the other well I'm still undecided. I am I to me. It seems like we have a a large field of very qualified qualified people and so That makes the decision harder because they're all good so what I'm considering going to is Someone that can immediately restore our credibility With the world We think we're the laughing stock now. And I think we need to regain our The Mantle of leadership and respect and get our credibility back back and a friend of mine who was a cory booker supporter. Very adamant he just the next day went to Joe Biden very strongly and so I've been looking at Ah Biden That would pretty much. I hope restore credibility with the world pretty much outta the gate and it seems to me that when you have this confusing Mass of people that having somebody with the roots being with Obama and all of his is years in the Senate That sort of a direct line with all these other candidates kind of warming around rounded doesn't let me if I may just let me just tip toeing here again Because Lorenzo did I hear you Kinda side it was very strong side regarding regarding Joe. Ab Thinking about Joe Biden. But you're it sounds like anybody but joe I mean I think that it's a fallacy to assume that his credibility outside of the United States is going to provide any sense of security when he's an office I think that unfortunately impeachment aside the The investigation that trump was going going for it has really broken thy confidence in Joe Biden. And that's something that we haven't really heard at least I haven't heard much about Out You can be darn that he's GonNa late into that on the debate stage if Biden becomes the nominee. And and. I'm concerned I'm concerned. It's going to be another Hillary Clinton where you know you supporter. You'll like her and then all of a sudden this thing comes out and it's like Oh okay so. Let's listen coin to unify unify the party. So let me ask both of you got a couple minutes left with the two of you and Tom. I'll start with you. Is there anything that you heard from your fellow Iowans this hour. That might convinced you one way or the other not yet the to women's that go to the same church or re really really Enlightening and I'm going to re listen to this and Listen carefully to what they had to say. Cedar Rapids Nothing you know. No no we pick for many yet. it's still not three weeks certainly very interesting points. They made I still think maybe I'm I'm leaning towards Biden Haydn The reason that trump went after him I feel like trump thinks that he's the strongest candidate and and that's why he attacked him. I'm hurry everybody thinks he's the strongest candidate. I mean you can see it on the debate stage last night. They wanted to give Elizabeth Warren the last word and then all of a sudden Biden was able to rebuttal before the commercial break. I mean everybody expects Joe Biden to win this nomination Shannon I I think that's the disappointing thing is that We we have all of our hopes and dreams and this guy that is just. She's tired he looks tired. He looks you know like like he has so much that he wants to give by. He physically is just not going to be able to do it. And I I understand. Stay on that So that's why I'm just like you know you are. You are a great idea and if you could just throw your support against another our candidate I feel like that would be best in the end but you know that's not GonNa Happen for alcock Laurel. Did you hear anything this hour. That might have helped clarify in the direction. You're going to go in a couple of weeks. You know I did I. Did you know I've been. I've been fighting with my interest in Elizabeth Warren. Because I remember when I first saw her on the daily show with John Stewart and she reminded minded me of my history professor. Because that's what she wants and I have been fighting with that instinct to feel you know cast down in by her in a sense like she knows everything but at the same time I do feel like she has the best candidate on that stage and that her policies are really about the people they impact. They will impact me and my family with my son who needs long-term long term care Because he's disabled I just I'm ready for a woman. I'm ready for that feminine touch so I really if you like between the debate last night and what I heard today Elizabeth Warren seems like the best win and if I might interject I thought thought we'd be passed having I've having to think about either having a man or woman and that we would just be at the place where or we would pick. The best person is really. We've never we have that. We're not that far down the road yet. We shouldn't gender shouldn't matter it should just be the best person and it's I'm I'm pretty disappointed that we haven't gone on that far yet. Well Tom Fuller from Cedar Rapids Iowa. Tom Thank you so much for joining us in our little mini any caucus here really appreciate supporter and definitely go back. And listen on radio DOT ORG. That's where you're gonNA find it okay. Let us know what you think about. What an libby had to say and and Laura Wenzel from Waterloo Iowa? Thank you so much for joining us in our little mini caucus room here seeing you. It was a great opportunity and I hope that everybody everybody that's the thing goes out and caucus on February third. Yeah same here definitely and everybody should always participate in the electoral process as much as they possibly awesome. Cancel Laura thank you again okay. So that that was worthy more fascinating hours that I've had a chance to listen to so let me turn back to our on point news analyst Jack Beatty the Marvelous Jack Beatty. Who's been listening in from Hanover? New Hampshire Jack. We've got about two and a half minutes left here. What did you hear well? Well I heard voters who were just not only interested but intensely interested and and and and Laurel we actually. We heard an informed. Cy I mean even her. Cy was informative. We knew what she meant. And and it you know the one of the knocks on the caucus focus is undemocratic he to the no secret ballot. You've got to stand at a at a at a place for polling placer church basement for hours you've got to do it in public but on the other hand that encourages people to talk in public and look how these people talked to each each other. Not Past each other met. The arguments met the objections. Saw The merit In the other person's point of view it seems to me it modeled old Iowa's citizenship at its best. I I would agree right. I mean hearing hearing and in Libby and Lorella Lorella and Tom and and Barney and Mike all engage with each other was really inspirational. But as you said the actual caucus itself I mean I read someone described it a sort of like. It's almost a student council student president election because it can be so wild but to your original. Appoint though Jack was made at the beginning of the hour we've got about thirty seconds left here. Is there anything that you heard in these voters. That changes your your concern that you know. The Iowans wins. Don't really pick winners. Well their concern to pick a winner and that may matter as much as anything I mean. I didn't hear here purity. I didn't hear someone saying well. My commitment is to this candidates ideas above everything. Everyone seemed to hedge. I want onto winner. Maybe they'll pick one right. That definitely came through loud and clear with with all of our Iowa state but the reasons why they think their candidates might be a winner. We're quite different from one another which was absolutely fascinating so Jack Beatty Point News analyst with us from Hanover. New Hampshire the New Hampshire primary hot on the heels of the Iowa Caucus. Jack ackward diving all in now. Thank you so much for joining us today.

"We're talking about here, and it comports actually with the tape that we heard of the president before he was elected pulled from access Hollywood. Right. In terms of if you're a politician, you can just grab for people and take what you want, though. He said, so and more explicit terms. How do you wrap your head around this particular alligators in pure after all the things you've covered and all the president's you've covered? Well it's, it's, you know, delicate it's difficult. It's a situation where if what she described is true is, you know, as a extraordinary crime that could have been committed the, the issue we'll, we'll be for federal in state probably state in this case investigators to look to host acted limitations issue, define it and decide whether it's a case that can be investigated or not. But, you know, suffice it to say. Women who have our who claim that they have been solid that these allegations need to be taken seriously and that, you know, it's, it's not something that should be short off. I wanna move now to the world stage. The president is off at the g twenty and at that point. I t two things that come that kind of amazing. You saw that, that the president was asked about Russia. I think and the question of interference Jack Beatty, and he basically at turned to Putin there and he said, naughty naughty, and then the AP is reporting the Kremlin says that pleasant President Putin has invited Trump to visit Russia next year. That Putin spokesman Dmitry peskov told reporters that the Russian leader wants Trump to ten facilities, marking the seventy fifth anniversary that World War Two victory. Russia. Of course, was an ally of the US in that peskov says Trump reacted, positively to the invitation at the meeting of the summit in soccer Japan, a Jack Beatty. What do you make of Trump's presence in and, and demeanor and handling himself at this meeting of the g twenty? Well, again, the question is, what does Putin have on Mr. Trump, what could possibly dick? Tate his obsequious behavior toward the Russian dictator. I would say and you know, this is history repeating itself. There was talk in the two hundred in the two thousand sixteen campaign enthusiastic talked by his campaign. Aides to send have ever have Trump go to Russia..

"What does this mean for the future? I think it means that Republicans are learning that they're going to have to break from the president to get anything done. Jack Beatty is that analysis to the point? Does it get it right? Well, I deferred to my colleagues on the details. But it seems to me that the president was for some months at a fighting against this, this appropriation on the grounds that it was too generous to Puerto Rico, and he extravagantly overstated the amount of aid that had gone to Puerto Rico, and was implying that somehow this was being skimmed off by the government. There are others. And so he seemed to be holding it up and. And Republican senators were with him so far. I just don't know how that was resolved. Maybe to Lou could say how that was resolved in the end. How the Puerto Rican issue was was handled to briefly tell us what happened there. Yeah. The, the president caved on this issue. He had said he did not want a single more dollar to go to Puerto Rico, but in order to get the entire package, which included money for farmers in places like Florida and Georgia. And the Carolinas, the president did have to offer money into Puerto Rico, and he caved, and Republican senators went along with him, and the money went to Puerto Rico, and that's how that was resolved. A not infrequent resulted seems when, when Democrats hold their line once they have one chamber of congress, right right at the, the president's learning how to deal with divided. Government coming up. We'll take a look at the Trump administration's aid package and a Morehouse commencement speakers surprise gift. We'd also have welcome your questions about the weeks developments on the abortion fights. I'm David Folkenflik in. This is on point. The fact that in two thousand and nineteen.

"This is on point. I'm David Folkenflik. We're talking about this week's top news. You can join the conversation Muller's drawing up prosecutorial beat on the White House. What are you taking from what we're learning, and it's not just Trump? The US is supported the Saudis for decades is now the time to loosen those times if so why follow us on Twitter and find us on Facebook at on point radio. My guest today are Kimberly Atkins of the Boston Herald, Kathy Gilson of the Atlantic and on points on Jack Beatty, Cathy, I want to ask you a little bit about what you've learned what you think has been set out in in the special prosecutor's briefs and documents that have been emerged in court in terms of our understanding of the presence dealings with Russia, and how you sort of overlay that with his approach to Russia from a policy standpoint. Yeah. Well, so I think people who have been observing Trump's attitude toward Russia ever since the presidential campaign. Have long been puzzled by his seeming affinity for Ladimir Putin. I mean, you'll recall that Mitt Romney was sort of roundly mocked by liberals for for calling Russia, the United States number one geopolitical foe in in the year when he ran for presidential election. So it's it's an unusual. It was always an unusual position for a Republican candidate to take and then ever since then we've also seen him sort of demeer or avoid blaming Russia for interference in the two thousand sixteen presidential election. And so from a policy standpoint, it's it's his positions have been unorthodox vis-a-vis Russia, although it's not necessarily out of character for him to embrace unorthodox opinions as far as either mainstream Republican foreign policy is concerned or mainstream foreign policy in general is considered. So then you have that. And then you also have the pattern. That we've seen over and over various people in Trump's orbit lying about their connections to Russia or miss remembering or leaving certain things off of security clearance forms or things like that. You know, you had you had Jeff Sessions forget some connection some discussions. He had with Sergei Kislyak during his confirmation hearings research Kislyak, then having been the Russian ambassador to the United States. And now you have an and now you have Cohen also having lied about dealings with Russian. So you put these things together, and it just again like, it's it's all dots. And no smoking connections yet as far as the president's own involvement is concerned. But this is the first time that the Mueller investigation has reached so deeply into the president's own behavior. Right. We now know according to Cohen that he was discussing Russia directly with the man who is now the president during the campaign, which and I think it's worth. Underscoring? Also, the what gets lost in this a lot of the time. Which is whatever, you know, whatever. The Russia issue itself is which is a big and important one. We we are seeing just repeated lying which makes it extremely difficult to credit whatever denials now come out, right? Like, we don't Trump has lied repeatedly about for instance, the other Coen case about payments to stormy Daniels. So when he comes it's not necessarily credible anymore when he comes out and calls Cohen Aligarh. But the problem with a story like this as you have liars sort of on all sides Cohen Cohen has lied to congress. So do we treat him as a credible weakness witness who do we really believe here and Paul Manafort who has himself has had his credibility challenged even after reaching a plea agreement by the special prosecutor NPR and others are reporting that has pull Manafort the former campaign chairman for the president who had many dealings in Ukraine in that part of the world as well is set to be center. Inste- on March fifth by federal judge in his Washington DC case I'd like to take a couple of calls. Now. Let's go first to Richmond Virginia, Matthew, go ahead. Hi, thanks for taking my call. You, sir. Yes. Like, the make a point here and say that I I believe that with this investigation. It is very critical that everyone is paying close attention and watching to it a watching it, I know hard to miss because TV faith, but I hear many people say, yeah that politics is Trump..

"Jack Beatty, I wanna play a couple of clips for you on Wednesday night at a rally in Wisconsin. President Trump addressed the political divide, and and this week's mass mailing of what are potentially explosive devices. The president also indicated he felt the media has to play a role in resolving this as part of a larger national effort to. Judge of is and bring people together. The media also has a responsibility to set a civil tone and to stop the endless hostility and constant negative and oftentimes false attacks and stores have to do. Meanwhile, last night, former vice president Joe Biden gave a speech at the university of Buffalo's north campus in Amherst, delivering messages of unity and optimism instead of divisive rhetoric. We have to begin to put this country back together. Again, this division this hatred. Saga? It has to end. Words matter. Words matter the former vice president said that audio of Joe Biden provided us kindly by Mike Desmond at WBF. Oh in buffalo, Jack Beatty. The president also tweeted has started tweeting what's again critically about CNN, which of course, we're targeted with some of these potentially explosive devices. What do you make of the role rhetoric plays in all this? Well, I mean, obviously, the president has been attacking these people who've been the targets of this mass assassination attempt. That's what it looks like. And you know, you have to say this about the president. He doesn't disappoint. You can't expect Mara leadership from him. You can't expect a high note the length of a paragraph. He's yes, it was constantly was able to say, this is a terrible thing country can't have it. And then he goes into he slides into the attack on the on the media. He's he's added again at three AM this morning. Like, a kind of Yvonne the terrible, you know, took sending. Out his his messages new dark of night. It is in extrordinary test of his leadership, and again as after Charlottesville he has failed. He can give he can give these hostage video pieties. But it's clear that there are being you know, someone who's written it for him. But the next day are in Wisconsin the next minute. He's back to the spiteful resentful blame the media never looking at his own responsibility for this super heated. Broad gauge attack on Democrats as an angry mob on all the you know, we know all the instances. He just can't rise to the occasion like to take a couple of quick calls. We've called from Lexington Kentucky Jocelyn, what's on your mind. Yes. I was just thinking about what the president died and the aftermath of some of these attempted bomb deliveries, and I felt like as soon as he brought in the media being because he just totally showed me that he's not interested in any type of unity within this country. He's about what being divisive again and not really taking any blame for this at all. He doesn't wanna say a little I made me to unite with these people and stop being so negative. And I'm sorry for some of my rhetoric, and he's not doing anything like that. I feel like she should be inviting some of the people at least the former president and Hillary Clinton into the White House and. And he's not going that thanks so much for that Jocelyn preciado. It also want to take a call from Markelle. He's in Appleton, Wisconsin. Go ahead. Mark. Hi, thanks for taking my call. You, sir. I'm really concerned about what's going on. I think many of his supporters watching people on TV clearly people were good people are are engine nihil about just what this man is about what President Trump is about. I mean, it's clearly as far as since cleared that he's corrupt and Arnaud models. I mean, it's totally amoral and people are willing to make excuses for them. It reminds me of the report just on NPR today about Dr Nassar, and he was able to to abuse people for so long because people are in denial, and I think reference Michigan state, Mark, lemme ask you how does this connect with the concern about the devices that are sent in the president's respond to.

"Radio, one of our callers called to admonish us for spending any time on Kanye west visit to the White House at all. But I think it's part of a piece of understanding where the president is coming from what's on his mental landscape, what is he sharing with us? He also had some sharp words said a rally in council bluffs, Iowa on Tuesday. The president had harsh words for those who oppose him. Hey, and matches to an arsonist. And you don't give power to an angry left-wing mob. And that's what the Democrats have become. We've heard a lot of rhetoric from publicans about Democrats in their opponents being mobs, Jack Beatty. Where's this rhetoric coming from? Well, yeah, let's get a further test, but he's called the Democrats evil, the party of crime they wanted to straw. Our country. Liberals are quote, very, very bad people. You know in the October nineteenth, two thousand sixteen debate president was then candidate Trump was asked, will you abide by the results of the election? And he said, I will look at it at the time. I will keep you in suspense. It could be rigged. Now we have to be in suspense about two thousand and twenty. Is it likely that the president will turn over power? Should the Democrats win to a party that is what destroying our country? Very, very evil. You know you. We've reached the point where this sort of ultimate alarm is almost common sense about Trump. Here's Ed loose heavens writing in the financial times. It's no leap to imagine. Trump refusing to accept election defeat. That's that's a long step from where we are, but certainly the rhetoric is charged. He's talking about mob rule, Alexa sim digger. You've been hearing that from a congressional figures, some of them on Capitol Hill as well. What are you hearing that's. Driving that rhetoric. What do they point to? And you know, what does it really grounded on? Well, first of all, when we first started to hear this discussion about an angry mob, it was a talking point. It was very clear because Republicans, including the president were all speaking with the same voice. So it had been focused grouped it was a talking point and pollsters were suggesting that Republicans would profit by doing this. And part of this is because an election season, no matter what party you're in. You're trying to draw very sharp contrast and mobilize your own base to turn out. And we know that Republicans have been very concerned that their base is not as mobilized as excited about turning out in a midterm, election as Democrats may be so. An Alexa don't look. Let me just stop you there to help underscore your point during on points a trip to Pennsylvania last weekend. Lehigh valley resident, Dorothy Nick. Lowe's told her and my co host Meghna Chakrabarti that people are getting tired of constant protests from Democrats. The democrat party has gone so far to the left, and I don't know, you will always have a divide there because you're, you're having the patriots versus the socialists and the globalists'. And until people could sit down and discuss things and not have one faction running around with silly pink hats on their heads and sawing everything that goes. I mean, they're just they're everywhere, and that's from on points field reporting from Pennsylvania. In that case, about how congressional redistricting deed redistricting is affecting the state's hotly contested midterm races. You can find more about that on our website on point, radio dot org, but Alexis to allow you to continue a little bit. You know if there's something more to what they're saying about sort of mobs than simply that people were protesting. I mean, you know, freedom of assembly is a constitutional right? That's hardly seems like mob rule the me well, it is, but it sparked a debate about what is our in our in our body politic, what is free speech and what is going over the line. And of course, Democrats are furious because they argue that the president himself is very incendiary and his rhetoric and often incites a mob reaction himself. But I would also point out that the. The Republican efforts to draw sharp contrast started before Brad Kavanagh, and you can see when Alexandra Cossio Cortez one Jerez in New York and defeated..

"By a folks who said the president was taken for a ride. This is the most irresponsible spending Bill that's ever been signed and so on. And he very quickly said he regretted signing that Bill. He wasn't going to sign another Bill out like this, and he regretted it because he, there was a lot of spending that he didn't like in that Bill and he didn't get funding for the wall. And he's said, he wasn't going to let it happen again. And I think that that's fresh in his mind as he approaches another spending deadline, Jack Beatty, Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell told reporters this week that he supports the president's border wall proposal. Do you see Mitch McConnell siding with the president on this to the very end of supporting a government shutdown. In brief? No, it would be it would be absurd and against the interest of the Republican party. The president is hung up on this prosperity for what the psychological reasons that Eliana outlines, but it it's a bootlace strategy to even talk about shutting down the government. So what's the timetable here when when might this happen? And when will we know. You know, I think that this will be pushed until the very last minute because nobody gets gets things done in advance in Washington, and it's likely to go until the very end. I Jack is right. Mitch. McConnell, absolutely does not want a government shutdown. He wants a another spending Bill, and I think it's important to note. There are other folks in the administration, Mick Mulvaney, Larry cudlow who want to lower the spending levels in this Bill from what they were at previously. And that's another internal fight happening in the administration. So I don't think we're gonna know until the fall the way this is going to shake out and the the funding for the wall is not the only fight happening. There are fights between Kudlow Mulvaney and McConnell happening over domestic spending, not just fights in Washington. I wanted to talk about the president's renewed campaign against the news media. This week, he called the news media, the fake fake disgusting news. We've. Heard that before, but it was different this week. This was at a make America great. Again, rally in Tampa, Florida on Tuesday when supporters of the president heckled CNN reporter, Jim Acosta, President Trump later re tweeted those jeers..

"They believe there's a story here they think is or well, Ian, they think it's, you know, well, here's NPR once again, this is from their new show this week NPR Jack Beatty. Here's the hater again. He's going to. And I, it's, it might be in the Trump rotation. Or well, do we have more Wely in nineteen Eighty-four? Is that in the rotation, but I can put it in. Yeah, we may have to earlier in the week during remarks to the veterans of foreign wars national convention in Kansas City. President Trump lambasted the media telling the audience, don't believe the quote crap. You see from these people, the fake news and quote, just we have to, we have to breathe heavily when we speak these words because it truly is. For democracy and press freedom and press access from these people. The fake news in quote, just remember what you're seeing in what you're reading is not what's happening, what you're seeing and what you're reading is not what's happening, Jack Beatty, your thoughts about that. Well, of course, everybody is gone to all wells nineteen Eighty-four courtesans like this one quote, the party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was the final most essential command. Wow, nice way to turn around or well. In nineteen Eighty-four. Last time I read the book, it was the ministry of truth who would bring you the correct answers, and that was what came up on the so-called telescreens. So this is the reverse of what they're saying. Whereas Trump as an essence saying what you hear from the ministry of truth on and you see and the telescreens is not happening, but they're turning it around. President. I mean, I think we all have to look at what he said there don't believe which what you're seeing don't don't believe reality. Believe me this phrase of Lionel trilling 's the moral obligation to be intelligent. We have a Mara Lobley Gatien civic obligation to be intelligent to try to read the world as it is. Certainly not as a self interested leader tells us, and this is a test of citizenship for people to they really want themselves to be described as people who don't believe the evidence of senses and believe supreme leader and is, does that idea of citizenship comport with any model of democratic life that we know of. It's a, it's a scandal. The president could say something like that. It's an even bigger scandal that that so many people believe him. No, I have some thoughts on this. I think you're right now asus. Perfect. By the way. He's telling you that the telescreen full of crap. This was brought up by Anderson Cooper and two stooges. And I wish I had the clip of it. Were they play this clip and they went beserk over this, calling it nineteen Eighty-four. They said, don't believe what you see who's he kidding, and all that sort of thing. And and this guy says, is a moral obligation to be intelligent. And when I heard Trump, I knew what he meant. I knew what he meant. He meant that these guys are facon stories and they're putting them on the air and they're saying stuff that's bull crap. Don't believe it. I knew what he meant. I'm not a big Trump fan. I know what you meant. I know exactly what he meant and everybody else knew what he meant, but these guys don't seem to know what he meant. They don't seem to know what he meant. He says crazy stuff every once in a while because because you know what he's talking about because you're actually in tune a little bit with what might be going on. You're not in dimension being you not you selectively taking stuff in interpreting it wrong, but this was a misinterpretation done by all the guys on the left and it was one after the other. I'm stunned that you found another one of these clips saying pretty much the same thing and the end, the guy says, oh, I'm stunned that all these people went along with his craziness. They knew what he meant. Apparently you're too stupid to know what he meant. Maybe what he meant. I like I like the term ignorant. I know I, I. In this case. Well, he went on with his ignorance well expected, it'll it'll whip up some feeling, but you know, the context here is a historic development week..

"Yeah and and that gives them the swagger that michael was talking about that you know a democrat had last night when he was out jack beatty what do you think yes i mean that arizona eighth district according to one calculation there are no less than a hundred and forty seven republican held seats that are that are that are less friendly to the gop than that one that's a that's scary for them and yes the disparity in in and spending national republican committee congressional committee spent a million dollars national democrat a congressional committee zero and there was a sixteen point swing from what trump's vote was just just two years ago but michael i mean there's been too much time on the midterms but since jack did brightly bring up that there's been a lot of spending going on on the other hand the rnc as a whole for example has out fundraise the democrats by an enormous amount so when we're talking about the two thousand eighteen midterms and races all over the country i i'm not sure if the democrats are right to have so much swagger here because they're going to have to fight in in every congressional district in the country well that's right and you know the raw dynamics of you know money and politics can overcome a lot of countervailing forces i do think however and it's a little surprising because you know you would expect democrats to be extremely energized at this moment in time and more so than republicans even though both sides are polarized i still do think that all the evidence suggests a very very big win for democrats there also some other recent data points one that comes to mind in this conversation as special election in rural pennsylvania in mid march were connor lamb was elected a democrat in a district that trump had carried by twenty points in two thousand sixteen and keep in mind also you know i mentioned this question about what the focus of the campaign will be.

"Things about this was showed sort of flashes of self deprecating humor made a joke about how the roads in north korea were a little bit embarrassing i is this guy who actually wants to engage with the world who doesn't want to be a hermit who maybe has a personality that we might even be able to relate to on some level does that mean he he's willing to make major concessions regarding his nuclear program in exchange for normalized relations with the outside world and the lifting of economic sanctions that's the positive the negative is is this more of north korea isn't even savvier version of the kind of game that north korea has been playing now for twenty years where it says it wants to make concessions it says it wants to do deals it buys time and then and then it lies and cheats and carries on intimidating and threatening and it all falls apart again be using this happened before and so a lot of people are very skeptical but i will say this is historic this is dramatic and i think there is reason to think it could be different this time okay so to the point of we've seen this happen before right june two thousand october two thousand seven two other previous summits between the leaders of north and south korea where there was talk of cheating greater security and possibly even ending ongoing hostilities between the two nations and nevertheless here we find ourselves with a highly nuclearized korea north korea jack beatty to to michael crowley's point about this being a spectacular photo op but still thin on the details the headlines though are that the leaders agreed to try to work towards ridding the peninsula of nuclear weapons and then also possibly even achieving a real peace treaty rather rather than armistice.

"So this is very significant because it suggests that the usefulness of gates to to muller is not just related to what manafort has has already been indicted for one what gates was indicted for before he he entered a guilty plea which is this money laundering stuff that was related to his lobbying business and occurred long before he came into contact with trump this indicates that this that that muller is is using the information that gates has to to get the activities specifically of the campaign and so the circle continues to tighten around the president although he still has not been directly implicated that we know of and the pardons issue is another very interesting when we have heard trump muse out loud about this idea but legal scholars some legal scholars believed that it could raise obstruction issues if the president and his lawyers are deploying the the president's unique pardon powers at as a as a negotiating tool and and using that to influence subjects of the investigation all of this you know there's this constant drip of news around these russia investigations it comes out in dribs and drabs you it isn't coming from muller and his team except when they file actual paperwork there aren't any leaks on on that end and so we have this sort of a blind man and the elephant phenomenon where we're all trying to figure out a what what the shape of this whole thing is but we obviously aren't going to know until the full results of the investigation come out and we have no idea when that will happen jack beatty is this just more drip drip drip or these latest revelations of really starting to bite well it sounds like the ladder i mean if if it's true that gates is looking at gates so much to flip on manafort preps flip on trump on.

"Well it next year but what we're seeing in all of these elections is not only does trump support not help the republican candidate it actually may be a weight around their neck because trump is motivating democrats he's motivating democrats to come out and send a message about what they think of him and so you are seeing a you know trump is having an effect in these elections but it's not a an advantage for his side current or movement well i think there's another factor at work here too in favor of the democrats and i'm old fashioned enough to think that candidate quality matters and um you know demo democratic candidates potential candidates around the country are going to see these races and sense opportunities and we've also seen a lot of republican retirements and so um i think that as a result you're gonna get a lot closer races in some places that you might not have had otherwise just because high quality candidates are going to be uh are going to think that these are real opportunities and meanwhile in the aftermath of this election uh president trump uh took on a democratic senator cursed and jilib brand saying that she would do anything for a campaign contribution she immediately fired back in a press conference she called his insult a sexist smear and she referenced a monday press conference by women who have accused trump himself of sexual misconduct it was a sexist me air attempting to silence my lace and i will not be silent on this issue neither will the women who stood up to the president yesterday and neither will the millions of women who have their marching since the women's march to stand up against policies they do not agree with what do you think jack beatty do you think that the consequence here will be that uh president trump will have to answer for some of the accusations against himself as we go forward well i think one hundred two democratic house members and senators of said he should resign of have been calls for an investigation.
