Is Biden's New SCOTUS Pick 'Above Politics'?
"Biden has nominated a judge from the D.C. circuit, her name is brown Jackson. As the replacement for Stephen Breyer on the Supreme Court. And there is not a whole lot to be said about judge Jackson because she's not a very distinguished judge. In fact, she is not on the second highest court in the land. She has not written a lot of opinions. In fact, very few, and she has been on a couple of significant cases, swatting down by higher courts that basically said you're exceeding the authority of a judge. I'll get into some of those cases as we get a little bit closer, talking a little more detail about her record. But here I want to talk about kind of the broader point, which is, which is you've got all kinds of people on the democratic side. Notably James Clyburn of South Carolina. Saying, you know what? Lay off her. Don't. Let's not. Let's not have another intemperate judicial nomination process. And then he says this line which I want to focus on. This is above politics. Now, why is it above politics? Is it above politics? Because judicial nominations in general are above politics, that would be news to me, going all the way back at least to the bork nomination, judicial nominations have been all about politics. So maybe that's not what he means. I think what he means is that we have a kind of totemic nomination. We have a first. We have a first black woman card here. And so Republicans need to sort of pay a certain deference because, you know, we've got a twofer. We've got someone who is not only a person of color, but also a woman. So there's a kind of double immunity here from what the Supreme Court itself calls strict scrutiny.

Jim Clyburn Has Some Explaining to Do
"Clyburn probably has some explaining to do. I'm quoting here from the washington post back in march of twenty or april first twenty twenty. Jim clyburn changed. Everything for joe biden's campaign in late february before the coming pandemic had begun to sweep the nation back in the democrat. Primary field was crowded and it looked like former vice president. Joe biden's campaign was hanging by a thread. Congressman james clyburn stood behind a lectern and began talking about fear. I'm fearful for the future of this country. The south carolina lawmaker said three days before south carolina's primary while urging votes for biden. I'm fearful for my daughters and their children and their children and their children's future weeks later clyburn was less anxious reports. The washington post his emotional endorsement of biden as the democrats proper antidote. For the era of president trump had earned clyburn the title kingmaker another notch in a long career that has made him the highest ranking african american legislator on capitol hill. Yeah he's he's got another notch. Alright he's also got some explaining to do anybody who voted for joe biden. This is the result of your catastrophic decision back in november. I hope you're happy. We not to worry about mean tweets. No more feuds with rosie o'donnell so i hope you're happy as we are now a country that has committed the unthinkable we are we.

"On rate on a special series of conversations called helga the armory conversations these eric everyday conversations with extraordinary people like visual artists. Nick cave actress and disability advocate merrily. Torkington and author jason reynolds. Listen to helga the armory conversations wherever you get podcasts The american dream relies upon the rule of law and a functioning legal immigration system. That was sheriff. Ed gonzales president. Joe biden's nominee to lead immigration and customs enforcement or ice and he was speaking at his senate confirmation hearing on thursday. I have been proud throughout my career as a law enforcement professional to uphold our nation's laws if confirmed as ice director i will be responsible for twenty thousand dedicated men and women who worked every day to guard against threats to our national security public safety and safeguard the integrity of our borders. If confirmed gonzales will be the first senate confirmed head of ice. In more than four years to some conservatives gonzalez record as sheriff for harris county in texas is a major red flag in two thousand seventeen opted out of a partnership with ice. The would've allowed local law enforcement agents to act in a similar capacity to federal immigration officers. And here he is responding to a question from ohio. Senator rob portman about whether he would end the program known as to eighty seven g as the head of ice. This concerns me onto eighty seven. G would you if confirmed wanna terminate two to eighty seven g program. He don't take it works while you didn't want it in your own county for me. It was a local decision. Don't let me i my question is. Would you turn the program. That would not be my intent. But gonzales hasn't just faced pushback from those on the right. A number of immigration advocates. Say gonzales hasn't done enough to reform conditions in harris county jails and it's also worth noting that his county has still worked closely with ice to hold undocumented immigrants up to forty eight hours after their release dates while the agency determines whether to take them into federal custody for more. I'm joined now by camillo. Montage galvez immigration. Report for cbs news. Camilo thanks so much for coming back on the takeaway milissa so who hates them more conservatives or progressives yeah no your introduction was spot on i think if confirmed at gonzales will face a competing views and pressure from left leaning lawmakers but also those On the right who worry that. is will not ramp up enforcement deportations arrests here the interior of the country the by administration certainly has never supported calls from left wing lawmakers to quote abolish ice a but it has moved. Melissa took her tail arrests and deportations issuing directives that narrow who should be paradise for enforcement in other words to be detained and deported from the country so the baiju administration has verse trumper policies. That made everyone here. Who doesn't have legal permission to be in the country. Game a fair game for enforcement The bite administration has instructed ice agents to focus on those who pose a national security threat. those who may pose a threat to public safety as well as recent border crossers migrants. Who are recently Apprehended along the us. Mexico border So he is getting a lot of pushback from conservatives because of these directors that he will have to enforce but he's also getting pushback from progressives who want to see ice tension significantly reduce An ice attention has been increasing in the past few weeks because border agents are transferring more migrants through the interior so on that last point about this narrowing while irritating to conservatives is also insufficient for progressives the aclu released a statement after gonzalez hearing calling his vision for ice deeply disappointing. Are those the primary issues that they had with his remarks. Yeah as you mentioned in your introduction as sheriff of harris county the most populous county in texas it consolidates is actually terminated. A two eighty seven g program. Which is this program. Dates back to clinton era law in. Melissa effectively allows local law enforcement to act as federal immigration officers within certain localities and to interview undocumented immigrants as was green card holders were convicted of certain crimes and to question them about their immigration status and hold them into ice can pick them up. Ed gonzalez set at the time that he terminated this agreement up because he felt that it undermined his department's relationship with the local communities. That's an argument that many democratic cities up make in favor of so-called sanctuary policies. They say that these policies are designed to build trust between local law enforcement and the immigrant communities say serve up but when pressed by republican lawmakers. This week ed gonzalez said that he would not end the program entirely Nationwide because i still has many of these agreements with other local jurisdictions across the country said his was a local decision based on local need so that was very interesting to see and it got as you mentioned a lot of pushback from the aclu which has been calling on the tension and arrests be significantly reduce and that kind of call to localism always sounds to me like a sort of reach across the aisle moment. I live in a county here. North carolina where our first african american elected sheriff Ran on a noncompliance with ice of tickets. And that's that was really part of what brought him into Into that position so it's fascinating to watch on these tensions Emerged now at the national level. Why has it taken so long for there to be a senate confirmed ice head. That is a key question as you mentioned during the trump administration is never had it. Senate confirmed permanent leader. There are always leaders who are serving acting capacity. Just one of those was actually nominated to serve as vice director but president trump hold his nomination up because of a surge in migration at the us mexico border. He said at the time that he wanted to go on a tougher direction in wanted to look for more leadership So that is something that i think was unique to the trump administration. President trump did make clear that he'd like having a officials in acting capacities because he could fire them more easily us. So i think that was a unique element the administration But you know it remains a very certain that a ice officers especially the ones who handle partitions immigration arrests are looking for leadership. They are looking for leaders that will be able to guide them through all of these competing pressures that they have on the agency because as you know many of these progressives want the agency abolished and the binding administration definitely does not support that but it has Issued several restrictions on who these agents can arrest in that has been a polarizing among some agents. Who feel like they're being handcuffed. At least that's what they're saying. So how if ad together this nomination and then one for which the hearing date has not yet been set for tucson arizona. Police chief chris. Magnus what did those two together tell you about. Biden's immigration policy. Well chris magnus is also a local law enforcement official from arizona so he has that law enforcement career and background That i think the by administrations looking for but he also has spoken out against isis enforcement and the trump administration immigration policy. So she he brings up balance being a law enforcement official but one that has expressed sympathy for immigrants that has criticized hardline immigration policy. So i think that is one of the criteria that the vitamin aspersions looking for leaders at the parliament security some officials who can On one hand enforce federal immigration law which is tough difficult task but also Usher in what they call more humane and orderly immigration system camilo manteaux joe gathers an immigration reporter for cbs news camilo. I hope you'll come back and talk about what's going.

"The aisles of my local store. Snipping squeezing an i. My favorite produce again is a great feeling but the bottom line at the cash register. These days tends to drain my enthusiasm. And i don't even want to talk about what it costs my family to rent a minivan for a long drive to new orleans for the fourth of july. The price prompted my husband to ask a we renting a buying this thing so welcome to post pandemic inflation. Here's treasury secretary. Janet yellen speaking on june fifth. We have in recent months seen some inflation and we at least on a euro for year. Basis quote continue. I believe through the rest of the year to see higher inflation rates in june the consumer price index the main tool for measuring inflation came in at five point four percent over last year the largest jump in thirteen years and the increase can mainly be attributed to products the impacted by the pandemic used cars washing machines and airfares. But how long will this inflation last. And who will it affect here to answer these questions and more is trevan. Logan professor of economics at the ohio state university trevan welcome to the takeaway woke. Thank you and also with us. Is heather long economics correspondent for the washington post heather. Welcome back to the show. Thank you great to be here. Can you take us back to econ. One one a little bit and remind us how inflation is calculated yes The most basically if thinking about inflation calculations to take us a basket of goods what would purchased so a simple example. Say everyone purchases an apple and an orange. And if on tuesday apples and oranges are dollar each and you spend the you purchase one apple and went orange. You would have two dollars expenditure and that would be a price. Index that would index of inflation measure to if in two weeks on the price of apples doubled. We would assume that you're going to buy the same apple and orange and then your expenditure would be three dollars and we would say that prices have increased by fifty percent. Okay i feel like i've missed the great. I could have gotten an econ if only you had been my professor because that makes perfect sense to me now heather. I have to say as i was reading some of your reporting on our current inflation. Is it true that we can blame all of this on bacon. Well it's certainly been one of those skyrocket that's the apple and trayvon's example right now for sure and a lot of people are noticing prices going up. It's it's up about eight pro four percent according to the last read But it's interesting to think about it so bacon for instance. It's up over eight percent from a year ago but of course what was going. On a year ago we were in the middle of the pandemic. Some prices were stagnating or even dropping a little bit on some products like hotel rooms that nobody wanted to stay in so part of the reason. We're seeing these eye popping numbers this year is because it's compared to a year ago when prices and the economy were in a very very different place than they are now so that point about as being in such a different place driven. Let me come to you on that. Because your example the apple in the orange yesterday it was two dollars. Now it's three. That's going to be rough. Because i'm gonna still need that one apple in that one orange but are these inflation numbers reflecting the lived reality for folks on the ground right now me at the grocery store for example Or is it that things have shifted so much that we're not really feeling inflation. Yes there are two things so it is apple an orange example. If apple's now though from being one dollar to two dollars you might decide not to purchase the apple and you might decide to purchase two orange it right so when these crisis rise one of the things that we know that consumers do also going back to the common one is to substitute towards a good that is now relatively cheaper and that is one of the things that is not reflected. in some of the ways we calculate the consumer price index so asthma Increase in price of bacon. Now is much more expensive than it was a year ago. You might decide to substitute towards chicken. Although what i also know is that chicken wings aren't short supply. Nobody nobody and i'm speaking as a southerner is ever going to substitute chicken for bacon. Heather can you help us understand whether or not this is likely temporary or whether we're looking at price increases. That are here to stay. That is the key debate. Melissa that's going on in the white house in the Palace of power on wall street and in many parts. The united states is this just the summer of high inflation. And then it'll be forgotten by thanksgiving or is this here to stay and it was interesting this week The head of the federal reserve are most powerful policymaker. He even said he is quote not comfortable with where things are right now so a lot of it you can look at and you can say yeah. This probably won't last forever things like the air fares being up twenty five percent or the hotel prices surging or furniture. Anyone who's tried to buy a laundry machine or a dishwasher furniture right now. Obviously when everyone many people were at home there was just this huge home renovation craze and home beautification craze going on and so they're still back orders on a lot of couches in these sorts of things. Same thing about a third of of what's driving inflation right now. Is the surgeon used car prices. I personally went car shopping this spring. I can attest the sticker shock of being on these car. Lots and seeing used cars are up about forty five percent from last year and but usually with goods with things like couches or cars eventually. The factories produce more the companies. Get those items shipped and they get out into the stores an into the storeroom floors and there. We have enough products to bring the prices back down. But how long does that take. Does that take a few months. Does that take a year. But that's that's why most people are still arguing. The inflation could be short-lived. But what i worry a lot about. What's probably not short lived. There is now starting to be some uptick in rent prices and those tend not to go back down. Anybody who's gotten a rent increase knows when they jack up one hundred two hundred however much A month they usually don't come back next year and cut your price so trevan. Can you help us to think a little bit about this. Relationship between interest rates and inflation typically they. They're in verse and right. Now we've got very low. Interest rates is that causing inflation rates rise. Probably not one of the things that we know from bitter type of inflation that we're experiencing right now on. This really gets back to this debate about whether it is transitory or permanent is that we would have a situation of low interest rates on for a time to ease monetary policy. But we've had low interest rates for quite some time We've had historically low interest rates essentially since the great recession and we haven't had significant or out of control inflation in that time period so it's not likely that there's a strong relationship between monetary policy right now in terms of interest rates and inflation. But one of the issues is the way that we can. Inflation under control is by raising interest rates. And so that is one of the tools at the fed would use to control inflation if it were to get out of control. It's another reason why people are not as concerned about the relationship because we have some tools at the fed can use.

"Capitol. Police issued a statement saying quote nine were arrested for demonstrating a prohibited area on capitol grounds. This comes in the same week. When democrat from the state of texas flat austin deny texas republicans the forum necessary to pass a restrictive voting bill. Texas governor greg. Abbott responded to the move by threatening to arrest the fifty plus elected officials upon their return to the state as soon as they come back in texas they will be arrested they will be cabin inside the texas capitol and kill. They get the job done. When voting rights demonstrators are arrested or threatened with arrest it recalls a shameful period in american history when the power of the state was used not to protect and extend democracy but to violently limited and when elected lawmakers are arrested or threatened with arrest for peacefully gathering to raise their voices and expressed the concerns of their constituents it recalls authoritarian nation's few would recognize a democracy. And when all this happened while one political party refuses to investigate the violent recent insurrection that threatened to interrupt the peaceful transition of power bat suggest. The government of the people by the people and fourth people may indeed be in danger of perishing from the earth. Joining me now is a man who knows a little about risking a risk to stand for equal rights representative james clyburn the democrat representing south carolina. Six congressional district and house majority whip welcome presented clyburn. Thank you very much for having this. Can we start with your reaction to the arrest presented on thursday. I am so proud of joyce. I was not food warned that that was about to happen It was a little bit surprised when i saw. But i'm as proud of her. Is i can possibly be. She is demonstrated as the leader of the congressional black office How serious this issue is with us. and it's really really serious. I'm having a hard time understanding why people can't see That people like me a history Like i have here in the south We do not take voting lightning. There has been some tremendous sacrifices For this i was in Dylan town this week. hours in osborne county. There's these are places That the history of the nine. The right to vote Last week i was in claritin town re brown people investigation started so people have understand history is instructive and we will not run away from that yesterday and we will not Do violence to that history. We are going to remain true to the sacrifice made by so many of our parents and grandparents and we are not going to allow vote to be taken away with our participation. When you talk about that history. I have to say that for me watching the texas democrats this week using their relatively limited power as a minority party in a single state but nonetheless by fleeing austin they were able to really draw attention to these issues. It feels strategically smart and creative ways. Do in fact remind me of the civil rights movement have congressional democrats who you helped to lead been similarly strategic and creative. I think so And we are cooperating. And or lesson. I might add with those Legislators from texas. I cannot wait to sit down with them Next week As i did the week before we Came home as you remember. A small delegation of them came to washington a couple of weeks ago. And i'm net with them at that time. royce west. I know very very well And as well as many of the others and we are standing in solidarity with them on this issue. Now there's been some public discussion about your position on voter. id laws. Would you like to take this moment to clarify that well. I don't know why people cannot understand that. When i have your position and you have your position and we sit down at the table together We try to find common ground. And i'm gets the filibuster. I know the history of it. Strom thurman represented south carolina in the united states when he set the record for the filibuster And so he was setting that record. Philipson a civil rights bill against the filibuster but there are a lot of people in my caucus who far the filibuster. So my whole thing is is common ground that can be reached. And i thank. You can so already accommodated The budget when it comes to the filibuster williams now allow the full faith and credit of the united states To be subjected to a filibuster that same principle should apply in my opinion to constitutional issues. So all i've said is if you want to hold onto the filibuster fine though i'm against but if that's what you are limited to legislative issues do not allow it to constitutional issues like we don't allow it on the budget and that's a very simple common ground. It seems to me. You're getting rid of the filibuster which apply to constitutional issues such as voting like we don't for the budget that's over now. There's some reporting that suggests that president biden has been unwilling to press for this filibuster. Carve out that you support when i think about the very real king-making moment that you had And not only you. But south carolina's black voters in being decisive for president biden in two thousand twenty primaries does the president and his administration do they owe it to both you and black democratic voters in south carolina and across the country to back this filibuster carve out strategy. May i ask you how many people believe one up and no soft with have gotten elected to the united states senate from georgia. The first jewish guy and the first black guy elected georgia I mean Represent georgia in the united states senate. So this is a senate issue irrespective of what joe biden may feel about it. This schumer and the members of the senate mentioned would not be sitting in the majority today. We're not a one and also and their stay lead on. This georgia was the first to produce this kind of legislation. Texas and florida followed them. So a people keep wanting to put this between the white house rest in the senate and the president said that whatever the senate filibuster he is going to support so this is a senate issue and it needs to be dealt with by the said it seems to me that also senate issue and one way to tip senate powered durably in the direction of democrats without any filibuster. Reform is to move toward statehood for washington. Dc and potentially also for us virgin islands and puerto. Rico i'm are those statehood positions things that You personally support and that you're trying to move.

"It does congressman. Thank you so much for spending time with us. Appreciate it. thank you for. That was congressman. James clyburn who represents the sixth district of south carolina in the house. Two weeks ago the attacks. It's spas and georgia's atlanta area brought national attention to the rise in anti asian american violence particularly over the past year and with the voting restrictions. Coming out of the same state. Asian american and pacific islanders are deeply engaged in how to champion their rights and their safety. Cookley is the director of the a. P. i engaged fund. She's tapped into. Api organizers all around the us and she says she seeing asian american and pacific islander community groups building stronger intersectional ties within the greater. Racial equity movement per fund has been supporting their efforts to combat anti asian american violence. I invited her on the show to talk about a political power and participation in the wider women of color voting block on suk. Welcome thank you. For ri- one thing that i i've been thinking a lot about recently is how real and how constructed racial identity is in no asian american or asian is in and of itself a construct for people who've come from all around the world either in this generation the previous generation or many generations ago and become asian american pacific islanders. There is this This moment of reckoning with the multiple layers of identity so so with all of that in mind. Where do you think. Asian americans are in a joint political consciousness with people who have very different backgrounds. You know there is certainly complexity to the identity and like you said with. Api's some of it is a social construct. Some of it is the fact that even if i as a korean american may not identifies. Api not to say. I don't but even if i don't identify those around me they don't see the difference. I'm whatever they think. I am chinese american. That's the definition of it or api. So that's something we have to come to terms with at the same time you know we've done on. Api's there is a lot that we have in common terms of where we stand viewpoints on so many different issues even if there are nuances so when with the fun again when when we support our group's this is why it's important to not only fund locally because it's so different the experience of a chinese american in california to them in the south but we also think there is more value and potential power in coming together in so we been supporting the groups individually but also bring them together and last year because of the rise of anti aging violence We started to support them for work around anti asian racism and they created a. there's a network. It's a shared liberation network and it's designed to allow them to come together and have some of the conversations about identity in about what needs to be. Api and i would say that yes. Identity is a challenge very meetings. But it's also something they're willing to tackle on. I think they're tackling a lot more than it used to be. So you're the director of the api civic engagement fund. What kind of worker you doing in terms of tracking you know what populations in what parts of the country are engaging with local and state politics so we as i mentioned we fund a number goose around the country and we had the opportunity in.
Is It Really Time to Get Rid of the Filibuster?
"Then there's also a couple of gun control bills at the House approved Perry. I'm wondering if this is doomed in the Senate, and then if that's indicative of other bills that are going to go to the Senate over the next couple of years and only to die because moderate Democrats kill them. What do you think? Yeah. I mean, we're the background checks. Bill was passing the Democrats in the last house on the defensive, because last time, too, in 2019 or 29, pretty sure and also move. Know where we're headed toward this big fight. And this week we saw what I think. Is the biggest illustration of it and where it's going to become most central, which is that you have, you know, you have basically three blocks of Democrats. You have sort of more the most sort of left where Democrats want to get rid of the filibuster and like and jetted Supremes Supreme Court and just to do a lot of really liberal things. By getting rid of the old duster. You have the Joe Mansions and the Kristen Cinemas. The senators who are putting on Opposed to giving the bill Buster, But you saw this week what I think is an emerging vision among Democrats, which J, which James Clyburn and Stacey Abrams both raised their two of the most prominent black figures in the party, which is that you shouldn't give her the filibuster for everything, but you really need to get rid of the filibuster so you can pass voting rights bills that protect particularly people of colors right to vote and the ability to vote, particularly in response to all these bills moving in states like Georgia, that would make it harder to Votes, and I think the filibuster fight is going toe feel about a lot of issues, but it's really going to be about these voting rights issues where you're going to see a lot of like black Democrats pressuring mansion and cinema, particularly and saying, you know, on some level, you may want the filibuster in theory, but you cannot prioritize the filibuster over black voting rights. That's where we're headed toward. Is gonna be this real fight in the next few months in the Democratic Party and buying so far is trying to say his staff's been saying his preference is to keep the filibuster. You know, people have lots of purpose is in life that they don't necessarily abide by and I think he's signaling maybe some open this to some changes on issue himself.
Laurence Tribe says Trump should be impeached again even if a Senate conviction is unlikely
"Professor tribe welcome back to the podcast. It's been three years. Wow it doesn't seem like three years seemed like three months but you know time is very both compressed expanded these days. I wonder if it'll feel different after january twentieth. One can only hope and pray. That is why we are here because we need to have a discussion about what could possibly happen over the next nine days and right now the entire conversation happening in. The country is about the insurrection by domestic terrorists on the us capitol on january sixth and what form of accountability. should president trump have for inciting his followers and supporters to do that to the capital. And i wanna walk through each of the each of the proposed things. And let's start with the one that you and i both agree on and that is impeachment. The president of the united states should be impeached. A second time. Talk about why you feel. It's important that that bit of accountability happen first of all. No president has ever in our history done anything as obviously subject to impeachment. This is the quintessential high crime and misdemeanor the head of the executive branch. Fomenting violent insurrection and sedition against the legislative branch in an attack. The vet was apparently quite orchestrated but even if not president's involvement in it in a visible way so obvious that for us not to make him the first president in our history to be impeached. A second time would send a terrible signal to all future presidents to kids growing up in this country to the world that this is somehow not a high crime and misdemeanor so that if if the only effective in teaching him was purely historical marker that it lay down. Even if that was the only effect it would be indispensable but it isn't the only effect. There's a chance that it will put pressure on the senate in particular on mitch. Mcconnell to stop dragging their feet and to move more expeditiously after all the trial of president. Trump i don for his other impeachable activity involving trying to extort the crane in order to benefit himself in this very election. That whole trial just took three days. And when mitch mcconnell says as though it were written in the stars we can't come back until january nineteenth. When asked by the hell not. I mean it's a completely artificial propositions so pressure on him to actually reconvene the senate and have a trial. Which shouldn't take long. Because this was one of those rare instances. Both the initial attempt to pressure the secretary of state of georgia referenced burger to undo the results of the election and the follow one riot that the president fomented attacking the capital in leaving people dead. All those were in plain view of the american people end of the world. So it's not a very complicated trial and the result of that trial even if it didn't end until two days before the end of this presidency by natural processes occurred would still result in his conviction removal and disqualification. Assuming that was also voted from ever holding future office. Not as a vindictive matter but as a way of permanently killing this cancer. Exciting it from our national politics. Even if that doesn't happen james clyburn. Another have suggested that the trial could occur after the biden administration had time to get up and running spent one hundred days actually with constructive measures and then even though he's no longer president. Trump could be convicted and permanently disqualified. There are some scholars soup. Think that that is not a constitutional possibility but the evidence is pretty strong. That that's one option open to the congress and if you think about it the framers in designing the constitution would hardly have wanted to design it so that a really dangerous precedent could resign the moment before it looked like the senate was going to convict disqualify him and thereby cut short. The ability of the senate to perform the constitutional function of excising cancer from our politics is. It can't be that by the mere act of voluntarily ending his presidency a moment earlier that president could prevent the congress from doing its work and what that implies is that even though it is impossible for the senate to remove a an officer like the president. Because he's not removable anymore. He's removed himself ton. That clock has run even if it's impossible for it to remove him. It has the power to decide. Probably by amir majority vote that he should be disqualified from ever again holding federal office so those are among the reasons to go ahead and the final reason i should just mention is that an impeachment would hang over his head like the sort of damocles have been impeached that if he makes another terrible move for example if each is to pardon all of the people who were physically involved in the insurrection of the capital giving them a pardon from any federal prosecution if he were to do that then maybe that would suddenly motivate his removal and disqualification and so the deterrent also has a protective function for all those reasons. His impeachment think is mandatory. Unless of course he just resigns or pence response of will be asking me about the twenty fifth amendment tense response to the twenty fifth amendment called. It's going to be made upon him
Clyburn says House may hold articles of impeachment until after Biden's first 100 days
"Attack on the Capitol in Washington, D. C one Senior Democratic said the party may wait until after Joe Biden's 1st 100 days in office before sending articles of impeachment effectively an indictment against President Trump to the Senate. That's where he'd be tried on a conviction requires a two thirds majority of senators to vote for it. James Clyburn told CNN that the labor give the new president a chance to start enacting his agenda in Congress before any trial. We'll take the vote that we should take in the house, and she will make the determination as when is the best time to get that vote and get the manager's upon it and move that legislation over to the Senate. It's just so happens that if you didn't go there for 100 days, it could let's give President Elect Batten the 100 days he needs to get his agenda off and running. Maybe real. Send the articles sometimes after that.

"Colleague George Stephanopoulos moments ago, saying he hopes the Senate will be able to get on with the business at hand, which is certifying the electoral College count. We just heard from House Majority Whip James Clyburn that the House is expecting to continue business tonight, he says in a tweet. I have faced violent hatred before I was not deterred then and I will not be deterred. Now. Clyburn, sweet goes on to say tonight Congress will continue the business of certifying the electoral college votes. I'm Erin Contar ski. You're listening to live coverage from ABC News. ABC News producer Alley Podkoren, who has been in the capital all day covering the electoral college certification, and then the mayhem that followed is joining us now. Allie. How you doing? You know what? We're good. We're hanging in where you hanging it. Um, They asked us to evacuate the Capitol building proper a few hours ago and walked us through some of the underground tunnels that connect the capital to some of the surrounding office buildings. So we got a police escort through those tunnels. And now we're holding and one of the nearby office buildings. Did any of the officers escorting you give you any sense of the situation as it stands now? On on now it in that officers have been working to clear the Capitol building for the last few hours, and it seems that they are making quite a lot of progress that that members and senators that we've seen Leaving their six year holding area have told us that they believe they may be able to continue in the Capitol building with their work leader that anything not totally clear from officers on the ground yet what feasibility of that, But it just seemed like the worst is over. In terms of security within the building. We're just hearing from Capitol police that they believe that the building is secure. In fact, we saw busloads of National Guard troops pulling up to the Capitol and the troops get out. We've seen lines of officers s o u maybe you know onto something there, Allie. I know you've been Talking to some of the senators. I mean any any sense of The mood in the room where they're hunkered down. Yeah, One senator who just left the room. Senator Roger Wicker told us the mood in the room is concerned that it's somber and their many senators have issued statements from Twitter that this is not what America should be. And then have left the room. Honestly sounding a bit angry, Senator Joe Manchin left the room saying that you know the Senate is going to continue tonight that they're not going to let these quotes the in committee. And so it does seem that the room is somber is angry, but it also seems that there's a lot of prayer going on in there and has been a bit of a unifying experience that the numbers they sort of hunker down together. Republicans and Democrats in the state But any sense that the Republican objectors are going to drop those objections for the sake of expediency and certifying the results. You don't know that they've come up with a completely finite plan as to how they're going to proceed here. Senator Wicker told us that the plan is to try to creative way in which objections Concil be heard, but in a more expedited manner, not entirely clear how that's going to shit take shape procedurally once the members are able to get back on the floor, and is there any sense that they're actually going to get on the floor? It seems to have been Ransacked. Yeah. I mean, certainly There's a lot of cleanup to do. Um, remember, they're leaving the room seem optimistic that they will be able to continue their work in the Capitol building tonight. It's not entirely clear. If that really is feasible. There's also a possibility they would be moved to another location or continue their work. What they decided to do. Um, it seems possible, although I don't know how likely at this particular moment. And is anyone talking about the Capitol building now, Allie as a crime scene? I mean, we no shots were fired. A woman has been shot on, and her condition was quite dire. Uh, our lawmakers giving statements to authorities, or is it not that kind of thing? At this point in time. I'm not aware of that happening. We've seen quite a few long person officials appear. I know you mentioned the National Guard. We've seen FBI officers 80 s officers, Capitol police officers. What explicitly they're doing is not entirely clear at this moment. But I do know that senators are going to be asked in the coming hours. What the next steps are and how do we move forward as a country from this? Unprecedented event that happened because Yeah, you mentioned there's been serious, serious results of what's happened up here. All right, Ellie, stay well. We know you're going to be, you know, locked in there for a while. So please keep us posted. You see news producer Alley Podkoren, who is up on Capitol Hill? She, as she puts it, been moved. From the Capitol building itself through some of the underground tunnels that connect to the Senate and House office buildings on she has been asked not to disclose her specific location. As Capitol police work to keep everyone safe. A moment ago, we heard again via Twitter from President Trump's, so I want to turn back to Karen Travers, our White House correspondent. Karen. This is a stunning statement that appears to justify what has gone on at the Capitol today, Justify and they commemorate. Maybe if that's the best word for it. The president in the tweet just a few moments ago, says these are the things and events that happened when a sacred landslide election victory is so unceremoniously and viciously stripped away from great Patriots. Who have been badly and unfairly treated for so long. The president goes on to write, Go home with love and in peace. Remember this day forever, just to kind of dissect a couple of things one..

COVID-19 relief bill negotiations fall apart as lawmakers remain divided
"Congressional leaders, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi met with the trump administration today for what we think was an eleventh round of face-to-face negotiations on another covid relief package for Americans who are out of work or otherwise up against it in the seventh full blown month of this pandemic Democrats offered to knock about a trillion dollars off of their relief bill, which should otherwise been pegged at three point four, trillion, the White House apparently said no to that offer. Many. The deadlines to replenish or extend the relief programs that Congress has passed in the past. Those have already come and gone deadline to continue paying the extra six hundred bucks and unemployment benefits that tens of millions of Americans have been relying on since they've been out of work that deadline came and went July thirty first. The deadline to extend the ban on people across the country that passed on July twenty fourth now as many as twelve million people or risk of losing their homes if they don't get help. Technically the paycheck protection program the Federal Loan Program to try to keep small businesses afloat. Technically, that program is still alive that program doesn't expire until tomorrow, but it does matter tomorrow. With all these federal leaf relief programs either collapsing on the verge of collapsing the trump administration is saying no to the Democrats compromise offer they've been making vague noises about the president trying to do some of these things by executive order the president talked about that tonight at his golf club in Bedminster but then quickly pivoted to spending the next half an hour remarks basically holding a very small campaign rally. Left unsaid at all was how he intends to muster the authority to try to do any of this single handedly since it's congress, not the president. That holds the power of the purse tick tock though in terms of how much Americans need relief right now, there's no end to this pandemic insight. The reason these things are expiring is because when they initially past people thought this would be over by now. It's nowhere near over Americans are suffering just as much as they were when these things were passed in the first place. How's this going to resolve? Joining us now is the Great James Clyburn South Carolina Congressman Chair of the House Select Committee Oversees Virus Relief Funds Congressman Clyburn. It's really nice to see you here. Tonight it's been too long since you've been here on the show I really appreciate you making time to be here. Thank you very much. Can you just give us your overview perspective on what you think is going to happen whether you think that these programs that so many Americans have been counting on will get extended what kind of lapse that will be looking at between those programs initially expiring and them getting re upped when ultimately some deal hopefully, it's worked out. I think we. WORKED OUT WE'LL be the tremendous amid of the week. Weekend. We will have. Some politicians tomorrow I think we're getting close to something happening. That will be beneficial to everybody. When the president talks about doing some of these things by executive order, I feel like I'm going back to my school house rock it's just I'm just a bill kind of basics about how the different branches of government work I mean the one thing the president doesn't have is the power of the purse when he says that he can do some of these things just by signing. An executive order when we're talking about, you know sending money to people weren't talking about an unemployment benefits boost when we're talking about changes around taxes that he's talking about, it doesn't seem to me that he has the power to do any of that as as president. But yet, the White House seems to think that that's a that's another way to get at the relief that's needed. The purchasing is saying that there is no congress, the acid deal with no people the he has to listen to He says these things up think as always throwing something up on the wall to see if it was. I think he knows better than this. The general owners that he issues have gone to court time and time again and they've been thrown back into his face as appointed time. I think he's get the message from the Courts as well. But keep working and we'll come to some agreement I. Wish that Mr McConnell or in the room so that we can get the legislative bodies together but he seems to have. Turned over to the White House, but we'll get something. You you sound confidence and that. Is booming to me because I feel like you're pretty clear eyed observer about what is capable what what Capitol Hill is capable of doing just ask what you would say to Americans right now who are really scared about not just the health aspects of this but the economic aspects of this I mean so many people that I know just in my personal life with their small business owners or whether they are employees of public or private entities. people are worried about whether or not the the economic. Blow that's been dealt to individual families into our country. Right now is something that we're going to recover from in the long run. How do you? How do you see that and? How do you think the government has done in terms of trying to fix some of these these wounds? People are worried and. Something, I'm worried. He got a really a pandemic, but then a pandemic here. When you really look at it they got a big healthcare crisis. They got an economic crisis, and as we focused on trying to do something about the economic crisis, the fact of the matter which are not yet it saw without solving this healthcare crisis. So it's a double whammy here. We have to try to operate knowing full well that you cannot operate within the silo here
Trump Wants to Ban TikTok, NASA-SpaceX Mission Success, & Unemployment Benefits Expire - Monday, August 3rd
"It's Monday August third president trump wants to ban TIKTOK. Info on the NASA spacex mission success plus unemployment benefits have expired why trump's team is interested in Biden's VP pick and more. Welcome to Rob Song, podcast where I bring you the latest Progressive News and politics and ten minutes or less I'm Robert Cunningham thank you for tuning in. Let's get informed. So president trump announced on Friday night that he wants to ban Tiktok Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that trump would be making an announcement on these matters in the coming days he said this on Fox News Sunday morning futures where he also said that Tiktok, the Chinese owned short form video APP needs to be taken down via executive action in addition to Tiktok. Mike. POMPEO. Pointed to we chat, which is a Chinese messaging APP saying that both of these are feeding data directly to the. Chinese Communist Party quote for a long time a long time. The United States just said well goodness if we're having fun with it or if a company can make money off of it, we're going to permit that to happen president trump said enough going on the secretary of state added and we are going to fix it and so he will take action in the coming days with respect to a broad array of national security risks that are presented by software that connected to the Chinese Communist Party. Microsoft has emerged as wanting to potentially by all US operations of tiktok accents reports that trump does have a deal on his desk where Microsoft would lead acquisition of the US operations of six talk and Microsoft seems to believe that it's possible that a total separation can happen from tiktok parent company by Dance. It's important for you to understand that presidents normally can't just order a ban on individual companies like this but the fact that Tiktok has a foreign owner allows the Treasury Department to have broad. Authority over it. Now, at this point, it's unclear whether trump is going to allow Microsoft to buy it or if trump is just going to push for an all out ban, we don't know. But what we do know is that this is super weird coming just months before an election six does have one hundred, million US users, and so it is rather strange move it could alienate some I mean granted I don't know if it would make much of a difference, but it just seemed strange. NASA astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Bankin are safely on earth after a historic flight to and from the International Space Station provided by SPACEX Axios says on Saturday afternoon both astronaut splashdown into the Gulf of Mexico after about two forty, eight PM eastern time a space x vessel was able to recover both astronauts from their crew, dragon? Capsule. Hurley in bank in two month mission was the first time that people have been launched into orbit from the United States. The end of the space shuttle. Program in twenty eleven. This new move of partnering for Space Exploration, with private companies can allow NASA to act more of like a buyer instead of a provider of these services now and will free up NASA's budget to focus on things like getting people to the moon and eventually other planets in the future. In fact, NASA and SPACEX already have another trip planned this time for six months with multiple. NASA. Going up to the International Space Station, this will take place around late. September. So be on the lookout. Additional unemployment benefits of six hundred dollars per week expired on Friday July thirty first and reportedly the White House Senate. Republicans and Democrats are all know we're closer to a deal? Apparently, all sides are on board though for another twelve, hundred dollar check like was done with the cares act earlier this year the main point of disagreement is the additional unemployment benefits six hundred dollars extra. A month is what people have been receiving since the cares act was passed Democrats want to continue at that rate while Republicans want to. Bring that down to two hundred additional dollars per week while eventually moving holy to seventy percent of lost wages Republicans additionally wanted to get a one week extension on the six hundred dollars per week of additional benefits passed quickly. But the Democrats are refusing because they think that the Republicans are just GonNa. Use It as just a quick win and move on. But the Democrats are saying that they want a full robust bill. Now, the Democrats have proposed a three trillion dollar deal while the Republicans are looking to pass. A one trillion dollar deal, and as of yesterday junk Schumer the Senate Minority leader said that there were significant divisions remaining but good progress is being made quote. We made good progress. There are lots of things we are still divided on and we're not close to an agreement yet, but we are making good progress and I'm hopeful that we can get to an agreement. Now they're going to resume talks today. Okay. But do not be fooled. The Republicans are trying to place the onus here on Democrats but Democrats came. Up with a bill back in May the bill back in May like I said had a three trillion dollar price tag. It was approved by the House but then has not been voted on in the Senate and Senate Republicans want to have a one trillion dollar bill that does not do nearly enough in my opinion. So but as of right now you know who's GonNa Suffer America, the American people that are unemployed we just had on Thursday. One of the worse GDP records for quarter ever if not the worst. The percentage of GDP lost was close to thirty three percent. I hope we get a deal soon things are super hard to pass in Washington obviously, and I'm glad that the Democrats are sticking their feet in and trying to get this thing passed the Democrats are not perfect and I fear that they're going to cave too much here. But we've got to get something done because there is an eviction crisis looming we need to renew the moratorium on fictions. Now CNBC just posted a study recently that twenty two to fifty nine percent depending on the state that you live in of renters may be facing eviction as a result of the corona virus economic circumstances these numbers are horrifying and I'm sure this isn't the last time you'll be hearing about it. Trump's campaign paused ads over the weekend, which is really weird because they wanted to rebrand their messaging and new ads launching today are going to be depicting Joe Biden as a puppet of the radical left. This comes from two senior campaign officials but the most recent internal polls show that the puppet of the left's attack on Biden is going to resonate with voters and speaking personally in someone who lives in a very heavy trump territory. The this is the talking point that I've heard Oh Biden's not the problem it's. Going to be the VP you have to look out for as if Kamla Harrison. Some sort of crazy radical assuming he chooses someone like her speaking of the VP spot trump's campaign is very interested in that because the quote unquote radical left thing that they're going to be using their ads is a placeholder for whoever Joe Biden ends up picking. By the way, we will learn who Joe Biden is going to pick around on tenth multiple sources have suggested he said now he pushed back his self imposed deadline from. The first week of August to the second week and one source has said that it's going to be August tenth now. So be on the lookout here. No matter who Joe Biden picks. I think that Joe Biden is well-positioned. Of course, we all have to go out and vote that. This is not a matter of that we have to vote even if we live in California or Massachusetts or Oklahoma Even for God's sake, we have to vote for Joe Biden, but it doesn't really matter as much who he picks. Think this go around because trump's campaign is reportedly very upset that Biden doesn't have the unfavorability rating that Hillary Clinton did in two, thousand, sixteen, all of this trump at drama gotta be Biden's campaign to respond Andrew Bates. Director of rapid response said quote the American people know Joe Biden and after seven consecutive months of failed leadership during the worst possible health crisis in generations they know that our nation's capacity to join the rest of the world beating back cove nineteen has been crippled by one overriding burden donald trump. Representative James Clyburn of South Carolina said on Sunday that he believes trump is trying to put a cloud over the election and that he does not plan to leave office. If he loses Clyburn told CNN that the American people had better wake up to trump and he compared trump to Mussalini and said Russian President Vladimir Putin is akin to Hitler further representative Clyburn said quote I don't think he plans to leave the White House. He doesn't plan to have fair unfettered elections I believe that he plans to install. Himself in some kind of emergency way to continue to hold office. Now, all of this is to say everything that Clyburn is saying here means that we have to so overwhelmed the vote that trump cannot cheat. We have to force him out of office because on January twentieth at noon no matter how hard trump tries he will not be the president if we overwhelmed the vote and like Joe. Biden. So that's what we have to do. If you need help getting registered in your state, go to vote Dot

"james clyburn" Discussed on The Takeaway
"The discussion of reparations. That was congressman James Clyburn, democrat of South Carolina talking about the best way to proceed with the national discussion over slavery reparations. This is the takeaway. The WNBA season is in full swing. And the league has more recently become known for its activism, and as a place where athletes, feel more comfortable being out as gay, and that move toward acceptance has had an impact on how the athletes present themselves off the court may seem small, but the evolution of fashion in the WNBA to include more on drowsiness and masculine looks marks an important change from what the league used to expect from its athletes. Britney democrat is a sportswriter focusing on the intersection of gender and sports. Thanks for being with us. Brittany, thanks for having me. So let's talk about pre-game looks in both the NBA and the WNBA. How long those outfits been catching public attention before Instagram if you will. It's definitely been longer in the NBA where they've almost been using the hallway like a runway. And now designers are, you know, debuting clothing on the NBA, athletes, and boosting sales that way in terms of the WNBA, this is a newer thing that has definitely risen with social media, and especially this year. I've, you've seen a major uptick in that with teams dedicating specific hallways for taking these pre-game photos, and some of them even making hallway murals as a backdrop for them you've done reporting on how there are a number of stars in the WNBA, who are embracing less gender normative, fashion, and looks, who are some of those athletes, Courtney Williams with the Connecticut sun is one for new Sykes with the Atlanta dream, tamra young, who's with the Las Vegas aces. And she actually even has her own clothing line. That's just a few, but there are many, many on every team who. Are doing this? And what kind of how would you describe there looks I would say that gender presentation is on a spectrum? And when we think of typical traditional feminine looks, it might be heels. It might be dresses. It might be, you know, really items and along the spectrum are more androgynous or gender neutral, looks and masculine of center and Bush looks as well which may include actual men's clothes, or things like blazers and pants and sneakers, so it can fall really anywhere on that spectrum. Now how supportive has the WNBA been about those fashion choices? Yeah, I feel like there has been this shift, particularly in more recent years in which the WNBA has stopped trying to shoehorn its players into an image that doesn't necessarily fit who they are. And they did that for a very long time. And it's really only I'd say, Lisa aboard. Who was the president until last season? I feel like it was part of her legacy to really start to embrace the players for who they are, and to let them be themselves, which really has brought a much more authentic connection, I think between fans and players as well. Fuck a little bit about that history. Because you've written about the fears that or the unfounded, fears, I should say that playing sports could make women queer or more masculine, what impacted that have on women athletes in the past, and what they were expected or allowed to wear. Yes. So this goes back to the turn of the twentieth century, where they were afraid that women were too fragile to play sports or that playing sports would make them masculine. A lot of those fears were rooted in homophobia worries that women who became to manage would be unable to, you know, bear children, which was they're seen as their purpose, and we can see in the all American girls. Professional baseball league during World War Two made. Famous by the movie league of their own the players were forced to wear lipstick on the field. They had to play in skirts, they attended charm school. And these requirements were to make them both attractive to the men who might be watching, and as non-threatening as possible. But those policies went deeper, it wasn't just because they wanted the women to appear feminine really was a fear of, of lesbianism that led to that there was no Frighteners ation policies as well between teammates because of that fear and that continued, you know, in the WNBA early history, I think they also tried to shoehorn their players into a more palatable what they perceived as palatable image, which was rooted in traditional femininity, you know, in two thousand eight they had make up classes for rookies, and those went on for several years, and they became optional in later years, but it was something that they asked players to do. And they even had in the early odds. There was a campaign. They called this is who I am. And to watch it now is pretty cringe-worthy. Their shots of like sue bird, who's one of the best players to have ever played like in a bathing suit while holding a basketball, so, yeah, this history goes back a really long time. I wonder if there you mentioned, the WNBA as a previous makeup tutorials for rookies was there anything quivalent to how male athletes were expected to look or were, they ever trained on how to cut their hair or shave or any of those other things. You know, I don't know. I know there's some baseball teams like the Yankees notoriously have no facial hair policy. That's one that comes to mind. But I don't think it's ever been as extreme, as we've seen in women's sports, and, you know, there's this perception or stereotype, that all female athletes are gay, which is not true, but a lot of them are and for a long time, there has been this effort to prevent them from being perceived, as you know, who they are, and that, and that fear is rooted in what in the fact that they would turn off mail viewers, or the fact that advertiser, wh where's that fear rooted in a lot of things that they would turn off the men who might be watching, I think, you know, filtered through the male gaze, which particularly sports has often been the assumption being that the audience is, is male and that they wouldn't wanna watch women just play sports in that maybe the attraction might be the attractiveness of the athletes to. A heterosexual male. Viewer. I think there was fear of losing money or, you know, a lot of times, this is driven by money who traditionally gets the endorsements and the marketing deals often that has been athlete to fit these very traditional ideas of feminine, beauty, who are thin and blonde and white. So I think it's rooted in a lot of things and also that, you know, queer women have balked the system that, you know, revolves around patriarchy, and so there's also that as well that they are somehow issuing what they should be in who they should be for several players on the US women's soccer team have started their own clothing brands that feature a lot of gender neutral pieces. Is that starting to become more of an option for female athletes? Or are a lot of female athletes still looking to partner with bigger brands like Nike who may not be as open to gender neutral fashion. I think what we're. Seeing is athletes, creating the kind of clothes that they wanna wear. And if they don't think it's available from a mainstream brand that they're going to go out and create it themselves. You know, lake tamra young with the w NBA, and I think what we're also seeing is, you know, you mentioned these are soccer players, and we're talking about the WNBA. These two leagues have the most openly gay players the most players who are out, and it is those players who are starting to push the boundaries of presentation. And I think moving their entire sport into a more accepting direction. We're running out of time in the segment, but I do want to get in one question here, we're talking about fashions off the court. But what about women's the way women's fashions are being policed when they're playing the sport? And I think the most obvious example, here is three and Williams. Yeah. Absolutely. And I think you know what should be at play is the comfort and what allows them to play their game the best. But unfortunately it's often been about how they look as much as how well they play, but that is starting to change..

"But also the obstruction of Justice that was done by the president is states in real time. There are indictments in this president's future. They're coming. Whether they're after his presidency or during it, obviously the department of Justice said cannot invite a sitting president. Okay. You just said there indictments coming whether they're after his presidency during it and the Justice department in the next sent say says you candidate is sending British. So we know there's no indictments coming while he's president. Now that aside this man doesn't have any access to any special information. None whatsoever. He is prodding and pushing the southern district of New York. When the president leaves to indict them to indict the president. You see what's happened to Manafort? They want Trump to go through that they want Trump to me in solitary confinement. They want him in a wheelchair. They want him destroyed. They want him.

"You really yesterday. James Clyburn, congressman, James Clyburn. Put out a statement where he said a couple of things that I found to be rather unusual as did a number of other people. Well, now, the the Anti-Defamation League representing the interests of Jewish people the United States America's organization that's not run by Obama administration. Official just by the way because their tentacles are everywhere. It's the real deep state. It's the supra-state AD L demands apology from democratic whip James Clyburn over offensive holocaust comments. The Anti-Defamation League has demanded an apology from democratic whip in the house of representatives after he appeared to diminish the importance of the Nazi holocaust in remarks to the press on Thursday. That's yesterday Representative James Clyburn, South Carolina, democrat who was also a prominent member of the Congressional Black caucus made the comments during a defense of his fellow democrat Representative Ilhan, Omar who has been widely accused every. Recycling the anti semitic dual loyalty trope trope is one of the words of the week issued by the media in her attacks on US support for Israel goes way beyond this do loyalty thing, by the way. It goes, you know, May Allah awaken the infidels to the evils of the Jews. I think that's kind of an important thing. And the awakening to the Jews. I, you know, there are some issues related to that. I'm not sure if she gets the newspapers and Minnesota or what? But Clyburn said I'm serious about that. There are people who tell me. Well, my parents are holocaust survivors. My parents did this. It's more personal with her Clyburn said I've talked to her I can tell you. She's living through a lot of pain. Yeah. Well, if we had left her in Somalia, she probably wouldn't be living through anything. And if we had left her in the Kenyan refugee camp, she'd probably wouldn't have been living through anything either. But. Back to her family. Now, my family, you know, we didn't get off the Mayflower daughters of the American revolution. I don't have any sisters. So that'd be hard. But now does daughters of the American revolution. Take men now. Maybe just democrat men who say their daughters of the American revolution. The daughters of the American revolution. And, you know, the American grounding and Davy Crockett and Daniel Boone, and, you know, the push west and and Buchan crown and Great Britain and throwing off the yoke of imperial oppression. And starting the first country based on the idea that the people can govern themselves, and the government would be responsive to the people instead of the other way around the left is doing away with that systematically as well. The fact that our our forefathers flags of our fathers. I've I've talked about it before my father who art in heaven died when I was five months old fought in World War. Two navy fighter pilot against fascism, the national socialist German Workers Party killing all the Jews. Hey, the socialists are back. And so is anti-semitism what a shock is that didn't work out. Very well last time, let's let's see how it comes out this time and Ilhan Omar is on the pointy end of the spear on that point he end of the swastika, and and my grandfather when my father died, we moved in my mother and my three older brothers. My newly widowed mother with four young boys. We moved in with her parents and my grandfather fought in World War One against the Kaiser's boys and pushed him back out of France and liberated Europe and all of that. And and my stepfather a news reporter big fan of the first amendment. I've got news people in my family all over. The place. Don't hold it against me and defenders of the first amendment, free speech and our rights and standing up for the Bill of rights, very important. A lot of liberals don't care about the Bill of rights about free speech protecting people's religious liberties or the second amendment or or be a search and seizure, but look at the NSA program. And so on the left is fine with all of this authoritarian stuff, but Ilan Omar comes from a very different looker. We take people in from all over the world. And that's wonderful. That's one of the things that makes America great. It really is. I genuine believe that. But the idea is that we've created the greatest system of government and social system that the world has ever seen the most prosperous country the world has ever seen we've lifted more people out of poverty than any country in the history of the world while simultaneously being the glue that holds the world together for the better part better part of a century smashing evildoers and only evildoers swayed don't smash good guys the United States. Has only knocked bad guys off of their thrown throughout the the course of our history from seventeen seventy six forward only, bad guys. Now, the tyrants of the world. If they have nothing to fear from the United States of America. They have nothing to fear and only the tyrants of the world need fear the wrath of the United States of America. But if the tyrants of the world, do not fear the wrath of the United States of America, then the tyrants of the world have nothing to fear. Not from France, not from China, not from Sweden, not from anybody except the United States where the most important country on the planet where the most prosperous country in the history of the planet because we are the freest country in the history of the world, and we are still the freest country on the planet. The left is chipping away at that hammer and sickle day in and day out chipping away chipping away, but Ilhan Omar's family traditions are very different and Illinois Mars, welcome in my America. I would like her to adopt the American way of life. I would like to think that that's the reason for moving to the United States of America because you want freedom freedom of speech freedom of the press religious. Freedom freedom to assemble and petition the government. All those good things. Great freedoms. Also, you have to respect the Bill of rights, which includes the second amendment because that's what ensures all of the other amendments and all of our other rights as much as lefties like to deny that that is in reality. The purpose of the second amendment. It guarantees the other amendments will remain in force. That's why it's number two. After all those other very important things candidate doesn't have free speech and freedom of religion the same way that we do. Great britain. Does not have the same kind of freedoms that we do. But Ilhan Omar comes from a dictatorship born in nineteen Eighty-one her father working for the dictatorship, which is described as a Marxist Leninist socialist state dictator running a a revolutionary council. The supreme revolutionary council. Military junta that's the government under Barra for whom? Ilhan Omar's father, and grandfather and aunts and uncles all worked. Doing what you might ask. Well, again, dad was a teacher's teacher. What he did was he a teacher trainer. He working for the state because it's a Marxist, Leninist, socialist state. He worked for the state insuring that the teachers were trained properly properly for a Marxist Leninist, socialist state, that's the reality of her family. Those are her roots and are Muslims as well. And sometimes some Muslims have issues with western Judeo, Christian based legal codes legal systems social systems, and so on and this is a woman who has worked for a radical parties in in Minnesota and radical candidates in Minnesota, and it shouldn't come as surprise that. She's a radical. Back to Bahrain. The Marxist-Leninist socialist dictator of Somalia under whom Ilhan Omar grew up from the day that she was born in chill. She was ten years old. And then the government was overthrown. Opposition grew to Borraiz government in the nineteen eighties due to his increasingly dictatorial rule growth of tribal politics abuses of the national security service, including the Issac genocide at the hands of the dictator and the sharp decline of Somalia's economy. Well, it socialist, you know, honestly in nineteen Ninety-one. This is when her family fled Borraiz government collapsed as the Somali rebellion successfully injected him from power leading to the Somali civil war. Mohammed for everybody remembers that marines, they were starving to death by the hundreds of thousands and forcing him into exile. Where he died in Nigeria in one thousand nine hundred ninety five now, this is the government that Ilhan that my my family. My father fought when FDR was president. My grandfather fought when Woodrow Wilson was president Democrats progressives both. But in Somalia the traditions are very very different bar. I assumed his position as president of Somalia styled, the victorious leader. That's what he called himself the victorious later and fostered the growth of a cult of personality with portraits of him in the company of Karl Marx, and Vladimir Lenin lining the streets on public occasions. Marae advocated a form of scientific socialism based on the Koran and Marxism with heavy influences of Somali nationalism. Now, these are her political roots. This is her family's political tradition. This is her family's cultural tradition, and I'm not here to dump all over it. I'm here to say to you that her traditions are third world be poll traditions, and she fled her be poll country and after four or five years in a refugee camp in another slightly less be poll country, she came to the United States, and she's. Been complaining ever since. And I'm not a big fan of hers, and she's a very Tantai semi. She is not what I would say pro-american. She's not pro capitalist. She's not reasonable. She's not rational. She has a bizarre look on her face. Like, she's a member of the Manson gang with this bizarro smirk that she carries with her everywhere. And I'm not saying she's not she's seems kind of appealing and pleasant. But when you listen to what she says, it's very disturbing very disturbing. Indeed. And then when I see the democrat party responding or not responding to her James Clyburn, now Jewish groups left wing Jewish groups calling on Kleiber to apologize for holocaust schmolly. Kost whatever. Yeah. A lot of people die. That's true. You people kill them. All the left has killed one hundred million people not counting the fifty five million abortions in the United States where they vacuum their brains out. And now, they're happy to do it after birth has been completed including their pediatric physician. And the Klan outfit wearing governor of Virginia. Ralph Northam, governor Ralph Northam. And so because of all of the anti-semitism spilling out of the mouth on the Twitter account of Ilhan, Omar with the may awaken the world to the evil of the Jews stuff. The Democrats decided that they were going to pass a resolution condemning anti-semitism, and then the Democrats got involved in the democrat effort, and the Democrats started tripping all over other Democrats over who's the bigger victim. And you know, how they love victimology. This is what we call it. Michael victorian. I were texting each other last night. This ought to be called the jussie smollet hate crime act of two thousand nineteen because it's as much of a fraud. What the Democrats pulled perpetrated yesterday.
