"Under the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964 the federal Department of Health, Education and Welfare had a powerful tool, the fight school segregation. It could withhold funding from district district that refused to integrate racially, of course, and integration effectively met busting. Jesse helps the race the segregationist southern senator from long ago. Helm's wanted to strip the HHS of it was H E W. Back of that power, health, education and welfare.

"Helms it it. You know the the opponent to Jesse Helms in order to endorse that guy would have to be such an awful figure that that it would become news. You know like you wouldn't have to really be following politics to understand how his opponent was. Max's being a little bit long winded here and I can't really. I can't really diet for me right. What he's saying is for George Justification. I don't know about that guy. I'm not gonNA speak on something. I don't know to be a good justification. That would only work if the guy if it was like a close moral race between the two guys. But he's saying that Jesse Helms was such an obvious evil right that his opponent. You really don't have to know a lot about his opponent to endorse him. So Jordan's claim to not have known a lot about Harvey Gantt. It's not really sufficient here. Because why because Jesse Helms is such an obvious evil which only bears out what we've been saying from the beginning. The question is not lack of activism. It's why didn't Jordan view the same things as evil that we've you as evil? That's the question especially if there's opponent as African african-american symbolically that looked very again. Here's the Democrat race identity. Politics Georgia voted for this guy because he was black. The first D I I notice I e I add for Jordan. Yes we all say. Now it is the optics are bad for Michael Jordan. There and it really is bad for Jordan's optics are bad if you're a superficial person who only cares about optics and can't think any way but two-dimensional bogus not in the sense that as time goes on it will be diminished in some way. But when you're comparing the legacies of the biggest most famous greatest athletes who ever lived. It's not an issue so much. We're GONNA take credit away from Michael Jordan for not endorsing Jesse Helms opponent because whether people like it were not when an election comes down to people and you're in a position of power and you don't endorse one. You say I'm just going to stay out of it. I don't know about it defacto every vote. That doesn't go to that guy. Goes to the other guy or Gal right so in a sense well when people sit out elections or when people want to do a protest vote. Okay but really. You're voting for the other person in essence. You're you're not working against them getting elected and again Jordan should have been. I don't think that's that's a stretcher on reasonable. They should have been actively to specifically when he's asked. Hey could you work against the reelection of Jesse Helms? Yes that's something he should have done so see. The line has been drawn. The whistle has been blown foul out of bounds. He just just said it is no question and at the end of the segment. He's brought it brought out the truth and the segment. Molly Karen began with does Jordan's lack of activism. Heard him but they do this. So they can slip by you the fact that what they're really saying is does Jordan's lack of advocacy for the positions that we see as virtuous hurt him a Max's meeting at the end. He's like saying it's noncontroversial. George should for someone as evil Jesse Helms. George should have been activist but if we took the segment at the beginning on its face and Jordan wasn't activist for Jesse Helms. The second never never got off the ground right. Because he went the antecedent condition being an act he would have met the antecedent condition being an activist. Right it's not lack of activism. That is the issue for these folks. It's why isn't everyone a democrat? That's what their issue is because they cannot see outside of their own minds they cannot the camp the camp and they and they draw the lines in such a way as to make opposition actually evil. So it doesn't have to be dealt with or debated because they're terrible debate. So what I'm saying Steven A. And because their positions can't be defended. Mike is it doesn't added to Jordan's legacy in an important way. Thanks that was that was. That was worst dissembling Stephen a Smith by the way to Mexico eleven so anxious to preserve some sort of like report with Jordan. I'm coming up on he. He's so anxious to preserve some sort of report Jordan. That he's like well. It's not that it detracts. But it doesn't add his legacy like merely like it's merely neutral which is ridiculous because you know what they say you know if this was anybody else. Hi honey this. Was anybody else with whom they were not concerned to preserve their poor like they are with Jordan. Because they want to be in good with him right they would have said yeah it detracts it detracts but they find a way that they find a way around it many ways. I got to be done now. The kids are out Mocha back next time. Probably do another one in a couple days Probably about this home schooling situation. This home schooling okay. What did you snuggle with her?

"That somebody who makes as much money as these guys could be considered a quote unquote slave right. But if Michael Jordan can't say Joe Jesse Helms is bad news without incurring risk. Then what good is being Michael Jordan other than getting this money right? That's the thing people to understand about like what? The true dynamics are of Liberian black here all that money. Michael Jordan had all that Faye Michael Jordan Hare all that celebrity. Michael Jordan had Michael Jordan. Scared to say Jesse Helms Racist Right. He can't do it he can't do it. I don't know how much it would take for him to be in a place where you could be like. I can say this because Michael Jordan people goal this right and that's where I do think this to be kind of interesting. Does Michael Jordan have a tacit understanding of the limitations of his position. Right Michael Jordan. Have a tacit understanding that actually. They don't love me like this. They don't really want to hear what I think about. These things is that his tacit understanding or is he just him being like look. I'm here to get this money and I'm GonNa get as much money as can and as an argument behind that right. The argument is basically that all there is to get out of. This is money. All their offering me is money saw. I`Ma get as much of it as I can't at the end of the episode. There was kind of this throwaway comment where he said if I had to do it all over again until people to not have me be their role model. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah. Give it back that money. This is the trade that he's made mean. Look the famous swallowing. I imagine how I can't imagine how consuming it is to be Michael Jordan and be famous all the time because I'm not even famous. I'm recognizable now. Necessarily like that much. You know like a magic. I can't can't imagine what all you know. All the scrutiny years and I think that it is okay. Legitimately do like how O'Brien talks about this and I have some slight disagreement on this power may support on a time. They like the heritage right. There's a tradition of guys who did things and broke down doors for you to get to where you are and you owe it to those people to contribute to those who come after you and. I don't think he's wrong about that. I think there's a real point to that. I think in the way that I kick it. I think about it in that way but I also recognize that this burden is placed on us. There really isn't placed on anybody else. Nobody else really has to do that. And so I can understand somebody. Buchan back and way I put it. I defend your American right to not give anybody else like I defend who you are. I defend your right to not have to. Nobody else has to care about anybody else. But us we gotta do this and we gotta do this for everybody else. Who didn't want to do that? I get it but be honest about the fact that you just don't want to do it. You know. Be Honest about that. And he's like what I did was. I gave hard against the money. It's cool that you gave Harvey money. I'm sure they could have used that money. Could use you more and you didn't want to do that. And that's fine because I can see myself under similar circumstances. Perhaps say no right. I'm not throwing this out there with like a terrible level of judgment get that just. Don't lie about what the circumstances are. Just don't be dishonest about what this is and acknowledged Mike's right to do it and acknowledge other people's right to look at it and say now man. I think you probably could slash should've done more. There's arguments on both sides and in some misunderstanding of what that money is going to do right. Because you give money to a campaign like Harvey Ganz. What are they going to do with that money? Right they're going to buy. Tv ADS to try and persuade the public decide with their candidate. Yes what is a priceless contribution to a campaign an endorsement exactly also I say this and this is something to consider like when I talk about like what race is and like what did is to be Michael Jordan versus what it is to be Dean Smith. Okay so a two thousand eight Dean Smith endorsed Barack Obama for President. And he did it via letter that I'll always remember. That was very interesting because the basis was largely in faith right like he was offering that Barack Obama is a man like me. Who was a like you? Who is a person of faith and this is why this is you know who you should support any did that. But here's the thing. Dean Smith can endorse Barack Obama and not be a big deal after he. By the way I dunno Dean Smith how with Jesse Helms to be honest with out there like we with carry flav Harvey Gantt. I have no idea because again dean one of the most courageous men in his world that I can think of these does that and people are GONNA stop and list. Even if they disagree right people will vote for McCain. Didn't see Dean Smith say I'M GONNA vote for Barack Obama and then be like well. I'M OUT ON DEAN SMITH. But Michael is petrified. He could say that about Jesse Helms and people be out on him and guess what some of them will. The question is Mike. Why you care about those people. Does everybody have to love you. You know as I think there's complexities to this and honestly. I don't think that the last dance got to that place because the last dance isn't there to get to the complexity of it is to tell Michael Jordan story is Michael Jordan wishes for it to be seeing. We'll be back in a metadata scoop Jackson but I do you ever feel like you're always all his work friends family. A million press social.

"Backing the forces of Mohammed lawn. Some commentators have said well Abrams is not a Trump guy. He represents traditional established US foreign policy, and that's true. The problem is that US policy has been to abet genocide when the US fields necessary in the case of water Malla, the Abrahams and the Reagan administration were approving the shipment of weapons money intelligence and the provision of political cover to the army of water Malla as they were sweeping through the northwest. Mayan highlands, wiping out six hundred sixty to rural villages by the army's own. Count decapitating children. Crucifying people using the tactics that in this era, we associate with ISIS in one particular case in one thousand nine hundred eighty five. An activist who for the relatives of the disappeared. Name Rosario with ROY was abducted by the army. She was raped her mutilated body was found alongside that of her baby. The baby's fingernails had been torn out the Guatemalan army when asked about this atrocity said, oh, they died in a traffic accident when Elliot Abrams was asked about this accident. He affirmed also that they died in a traffic. Accident is activists raped and mutilated the baby with his fingernails pulled out Abrahams says it's a traffic accident. It's very parallel to the stance. Abrahams took on Panama when Noriega the CIA back. The dictator of Panama who was involved in the drug traffic who the US late later decided to overthrow when the forces of Noriega abducted, the Panamanian dissident who goes spa photo and cut off his head with a kitchen knife. Jesse Helms of all people tried to investigate in the US congress and Elliot Abrams stopped him saying, no, we need not. He's doing a very good job. He's working with us in the case of El Salvador after the massacre in L Mazzotta where a US train battalion massacred more than five hundred civilians fled slitting, the throats of children along the way. Abrahams took the lead in denying that such a thing had ever happened. And he later described the results of the Reagan administration policy his policy, El Salvador as a fabulous achievement. He said this even after the Salvador truth commission had issued a report saying that more than eighty five percent of the atrocities had been committed by the armed forces and its death squads death squads which had a particular practice of cutting off the genitals of their victims, stuffing them in their mouths and putting them on open display on the roadsides of El Salvador when I appeared on the Charlie rose TV show with Elliot Abrams. I suggested that he be put on trial that he'd be brought before a Nuremberg style tribunal and tried for his role in facilitating war crimes and crimes against humanity. He dismissed. The idea of him being put on trial as ludicrous. But he did not actually deny any of the facts of what he has done what he had done. He said it was all necessary in the context of the Cold War. So this is Elliot Abrams. Who has now been put in charge of key aspects of the US policy toward Venezuela. Alan, let's go to that clip. This was in March of nineteen ninety five when you Elliot Abrams were on PBS on the Charlie rose show. It begins with you. I mean, I think you have to be you have to apply uniform standards, President Bush one took once talked about putting Saddam Hussein on trial for crimes against humanity Nuremberg style tribunal I think that's a good idea. But if you're serious, you have to be even-handed if we look at a case like this. I think we have to start talking about putting watermelon and officials on trial. I think someone like Mr. Abrahams would be a fit. A subject for such a Nuremberg-style inquiry, but I agree with Mr. Abrahams. The Democrats would have to be in the duck with him. The congress has been in on this the congress approved the sale of sixteen thousand M16.'s to Guatemala in eighty seven and eighty eight because they voted more military aid than the Republicans asked for again invite you and Elliot Abrams back to discuss what he did. Thanks, charlie. Go ahead. You want to be in the dock? It is ludicrous. It is ludicrous to respond to that kind of stupidity. This guy thinks we were on the wrong side and the Cold War. Maybe he personally was on the wrong side. I am one of the many millions of Americans. Wrong side, supporting the massacre of presence in Oregon. I wanna ask the pal. That's crime. That's a crime Mr. Abrahams, which people should be tried. This put all the American officials who won the Cold War. The so Allen that was Elliot Abrams responding to you and PBS on the Charlie rose show. Your response. Well, I think what he said in our exchange speaks for itself. But I should know the just last September less twenty-six genocide trial at a genocide trial and water Malla a trial in which I testified in and gave evidence the court ruled that what the Guatemalan army did in in the case of that particular trial what they did to the Miami shield people, but they also did it to the Mayan population in Guatemala, the court formerly ruled that that constituted genocide and in the ruling, and this is quite important. They said that this genocide was carried out by the Guatemalan army in accord with and essentially at the behest of US policy US interests. So as as strong as the case was back in the nineties when I argued on the Charlie rose show that Abram should be put on.
Tim Scott announces opposition to controversial judicial nominee
"Republican Tim Scott says he will vote to block when a President Trump's picks for the federal bench. Democrats and activists say Thomas far was engaged in voter suppression of African Americans they have aggressively opposed his nomination to be district judge in North Carolina. Scott's opposition is a blow to Republicans who have made it a priority to approve Trump's judicial nominees. NPR? Congressional reporter Kelsey Snell is following all this from Capitol Hill, and Kelsey is it this issue of alleged voter suppression. That is informing Senator Scott's position it certainly appears that way. And Scott says that it is the thing that has been driving him. So for some context far has been accused by opponents of working to undermine voting rights for African American citizens. The issue Scott sites specifically goes back to FARs work on multiple campaigns for former North Carolina. Senator Jesse Helms Helms, a Republican was accused of using a program called ballot security to intimidate black voters, Scott he said he made up his mind after reviewing a nineteen Ninety-one department of Justice memo that detailed FARs work on that program. Scott also told reporters yesterday that he was reviewing that very memo in the middle of a procedural vote on the nomination for far. And this isn't the only time far has been accused of working to suppress African American votes. His opponents also point to a law far back that the courts have called the most aggressive Atari most restrictive voting law in North Carolina has seen since the era of Jim crow. Well know, what does this mean for FARs nomination? Is there any way his nomination can advance? Now that Senator Scott is saying he's going to vote. No, well, it effectively ends the nomination for this year. Arizona Senator Jeff flake told reporters today that he has serious concerns about far and he would vote against a final confirmation. Meaning that there wouldn't be enough Republican votes. Even if vice president Pence tried to come in and break a tie. What's really interesting here about flake is that he's already voting against President Trump's nominees is a kind of protest. So he's been trying to force Republican leaders to allow a vote on a Bill to protect special counsel. Rob sorry, special counsel, Robert Muller. And so he was already going to vote against the nomination. He's saying now, though, he has many reasons to oppose far. Okay. So even though the Muller nomination is unrelated this using leverage crazy things about congress things kind of blend together, though, Trump could renominate far next year when there will be more Republicans in the Senate, although he may still not get a vote in his favor from Senator Scott because Scott, again, also a Republican has opposed his one of his nominees before. Oh, yeah. An earlier this summer Scott told Senate Republicans that he would oppose another nominee. Ryan bounds who is up for a circuit court position. But that nomination was withdrawn before Scott could ever wind up voting against him. Now, he said for days that he was undecided about foreign particular. So there were people who thought that maybe Scott. Was gettable. But this is a pretty significant blow for Trump, and there are many many more nominees to come. So it's possible that they could rebound from this and Republicans could still continue down their path of approving many, many judges Kelsey Snell reporting from Capitol
