"In your introduction you were talking about just turquoise labels yeah there's so many labels and I mean I can't even I can't even talk about it. I mean think and plant delights for example. Yes I think that. Half of the herbaceous plants I've planted or more have died. I have one oriental. Poppy and I've probably tried to grow. I duNno seven. Ten Oriental poppies out. And you know in those days. We were so intrigued with the latest thing the newest thing the untried and true thing so a lot of the things that we lost were not really weren't going to be good garden plants but some of them were right along and some of them just weren't tested yet in our areas and so on and so forth but we gave it ago we stretched. We pushed the limits and gave it a go. Think of we had that money back but we had the experience. We got the memories Hon. I remember going to the garden of John Kerry who who died recently crate gardener in Texas and His Garden Spin Open to the public for many many years. And it was called Pecker Wood. And now it's called the John Ferry Garden in honor of him and in one bed they had plants in this one area of this one bad things quite prominent but there were this. There was this aggregation of labels all stuck in the ground. Like soldiers tight together. You know like a pin cushion but giant right and it was hilarious and it was all the plants that were gone It was the memory of those plants. It was a graveyard mouse graveyard. Yeah the white labels all lined up look like tombstones. So let's talk about some of them. Actually you know what should I do poetic reading since we've already had some music so? I do a poetic. Reading is if if this is my favorite poem. I think ever it is. And it's by the Great. Jeffrey be Charlesworth. Also Sadly departed a great gardener garden. Quite near mind that I visited. I was lucky enough to visit. He was a leader in the North American Rock Gardens Society. Did you ever meet him? Yes I did wonderful. Yeah so he wrote this. This poem called. Why did my plant die? You're already laughing trod on it. Yeah so here's how it goes. You walked to close. You tried on it. You dropped a piece of sod on it. You hold it down you weeded it. You planted it the wrong way up. You grew it in a Yogurt Cup but you forgot to make a whole. The soggy compost took its toll. September storm November drought. It heaved in March. The roots popped out you watered. With urbicide you scattered bonemeal and wide attracting local omnivores who eight-year plant and stayed for more. She left it. Baking in the Sun while you departed at a run to find a spade perhaps a trowel. Meanwhile the plant threw in the towel. You planted it with crown. Too High. The soil washed off. That explains why to High Ph at hated line. Elastic needs a gentler climb. He left the root ball wrapped in plastic. You broke the routes. They're not elastic. You Walk to close you try to get you dropped a piece of sod on it. You splash the plant with more oil. You should do something to your soil too rich to poor such wretched health. Your Silas Clay. Soil is filth. Your plant was eaten by a slug. The growing point contained a bug. These aphids are controlled by aunts. Who Milk the juice. It kills the plants in early spring your gardens mud. You walked around. That's not much good with heat and light. You hurried it. You worry that you buried it. The poor plant missed the mountain air. No heat no summer mugs up there you over fed it ten ten ten forgot to water it again. You hit it sharply with the hose. You used a hand without arose. Perhaps you sprinkled from above. You should have talked to it with love. The nursery mailed it without roots. You killed it with those gardening boots you walked to close you trod on it. You dropped a piece of sod on it. I'm crying. I just love him. I just loved him and his books. Were the opinionated Gardner. Was that what his greatest book was. That was the name of it. You mentioned Rock Garden. Rock gardeners are really they? They like to be punished. They tried artists plants of all they have a high hardest group plants from seed. And yes. Oh My Gosh. I can't even keep Diana's alive more than one year right. Yeah yeah so so okay so. Let's yeah plant slightly over there Hon. No I was thinking about over the years. It's hard to remember because they're not here right. And so you know you're looking. You think what I but I was thinking and I remember. I had a collection of Oak Leaf. Hydrangea and my favorite. Was snowflake semi double double really and it was about six feet tall. And I discovered after hurricane Irene. That hydrangea corker Is Flood intolerant? I lost them all. Oh and just recently. I got a text from my friend. Heidi and it had a photograph of something blooming in it and it was my favorite Siberian Iris. Which is a kind of short one. Among summer sky from nine hundred thirty five and I had that plan for about forty years but when I planted here it got a little shady better also got four and I lost it and the thing about that is if you don't plants and it was hard for me. I got that from someone in from an old garden because it's not easy to well now it's a little easier to find that it wasn't then it all it sky blue and white just beautiful and now. I can get it back because I shared that plant. I was thinking about arose that grew for many years. It's a rambler kind of purple colored. Rambler you'll Shin Blau. I believe you say V. E. L. C. H. E. N. B. L. A. You may be awesome. Yeah and and he just it was just that and I can just see the place I mean I could see out the window the place where it stood all those years where grew all those years and I think I don't even know what I don't even know if I remember what befell it you know but I keep wondering like with your IRA why don't I have it again. Why didn't I replace it right away? says it was just so beautiful. It was a a feature in the flower garden at Wave Hill. That was the first place I had seen it in New York City and so I had gotten it because I was so enchanted by it there. So that's a plant. I don't know if I killed it. I don't I'M NOT GONNA
Senator Amy Klobuchar to be vetted for Vice President
"Other election news to Amy Klobuchar Is being vetted for Vice President though? I imagine she'll be one of a few candidates so this in no way means she will be the pick but everyone speculating about it on social media. I'm GonNa vote for Joe Biden because trump is not an option. No matter who the picket I have my favorites. But it's nothing is a deal breaker in this election for me. So you know it's funny for me obviously like the idea of Amy Klobuchar. Vp off as thrilling but on the flip side You started this morning. Agm facebook. I was reading about it. That a Biden named ASC to lead his climate task force. That feels like a huge. That feels like a huge huge signal to progressives that he's GonNa take that seriously that gives me a lot of hope and A lot of positive feelings. Ya same me to it. Really sort of puts forth the idea of the Big Toe Party and that we need all progresses and moderates and conservative Democrats at the table exactly Because the you know we're just fighting against this one small faction of the Republican Party which is trump base. And they're just insane and we can't have that so I am glad I. I'm glad that he picked Kluber Shar an John Kerry or not of AFC and John Kerry to head up the climate task force you know. She is the architecture of the green new deal. John Kerry was the architect the Paris Climate Accord. So right there. You've got just so much incredible experience in so many amazing ideas and I think he's really really open to bringing the progressives into into the party. So I'm I'm like you. I'm hopeful with that with that news as well. Yeah and it wasn't just an ASC but is also the CO founder of the Sunrise Movement. Which is a huge youth climate organization? So that is a huge unity task force for me. And I'm I'm really happy about that. Greatness news yet and I'm and I know his he's putting together a Cova Task Force. He has already. And I'm hoping that as he continues to put together these task forces that he continues to just build dislike mega of all different walks of the Democratic Party. And and and you know just make it. So everybody is represented Absolutely I think if everybody feels represented one way or another. That's the way we move forward. Not everyone's going to be happy all the time but but you can have both inclusivity in compromise existing in the same space. I think So yeah that's that's that's great news and just the fact that there will be a woman. Vp is is

Go Out and talk to people about the importance of exercising your right of citizenship. There's just a dearth of the darker. There's there's not enough leadership That is offering people truth that an and a sense of possibility that they believe it and and the result is cynicism is grown on the right in the center on the laugh. Neha all across the board people are pissed off. Why because government hasn't delivered It's just not delivering. Yeah Yeah. Donald Trump won the presidency with only fifty four point. Two percent of eligible Americans voting people who are eligible vote. Only fifty four percent came out. You get more Americans come out I guarantee you. The the vast majority of Americans are in the right place. They want to solve these problems. They're ready to do it. And we will win back. Our Future. Have you found any tactic that is effective? Like with my talking to people about gun violence. There's a population of people where I feel like they can't be reached. You've got to sit down with people. It'd be humble about it You got to kind of say. Hey let's talk about. What is it that you think is fake about this? Or what do you think in? Draw them out loud conversation.

Mom was an early recycler. She was homework. I'm mazing hat. Like how did she find mother? I don't know where it came from. I think it was an inherent in her upbringing. She was she was an early girl. Scout leader fifty years is girl scout leader involved in community so she read a lot and she was inspired. I think by Rachel Carson as many of us were Rachel Carson Limited. Rachel Carson was an extraordinary woman who was a civil servant not a scientist but was fascinated by the ocean and by nature. She was probably the most read Arthur in America in the nineteen fifties. Wow but she wrote final book. I think I found buck was silent spring which wrote about the problem of pesticides. Ddt particularly and the government was lying about it and it is true that DDT saved a lot of soldiers lives during the war because people fighting in the Pacific they had DDT was able to kill the mosquitoes. Less people got malaria and so forth but she understood and so she wrote this brilliant bucket which inspired a generation really created the mass movement of the nineteen sixties on the environment and Earth Day. Nineteen seventy sounds like a good movie. That's a great movie. What does she look like? Was she a little hippy? Kind of no. No no no I aligned. Describe her that way sorry. I'm just trying to kind of put myself Like trying to go but I mean the movie people do. They want to do now. Jennifer Lawrence is going to get it. Oh it's fine. Do you think you can see combat? Is that the most life defining moment for anybody who goes through it getting shot at and having people trying to you and you're trying to kill them and you're sort of this tool if you will policy living life and death that way makes living that much more tangible more real. Put you in touch with the value of life. You think you're going to be killed and you're not it's a big deal. I experienced that when I went parasailing. Actually you could experience. I am scared of when you were protesting the war when you came home which is a huge deal get arrested yes how many times. I think one solely just once twice but once we spend night in in a makeshift jail was an exhilarating experience. What was that like being arrested? Here in DC the women's protesting Kavanagh's confirmation as I think I read about that actually wrote about so we've both read each other's work we go about our neutral criminal activity.

"Yeah I don't know if you saw it in the paper or digitally Iceland. They're totally losing their is really. Are they going to change their name? wonder Waterland Clam. There's on the UH. We're not doing those happening right now we are. Oh Yeah it's happening. Yeah I'm sorry. I didn't do that on purpose. That's not my like. Oh God I'm sorry well I no. One listens to this podcast. You should have sat true. It's very few list there. You're when you're out there you're out there so mostly you know I just became a mom and now I'm thinking about actually the world leaving by the future I feel like global warming is of everything. I feel the least educated about that. I WANNA be educated and it's I think I've been kind of putting it off because I know once I really you know let in the gravity of the situation it'll be all I'm thinking about is my guess would be yes. Yes Oh it's all you're thinking about everything you think about should be in the context of what is happening globally now because it's accelerating so much. Yeah I've been involved in the issue since the eighties eighties. Yeah Yeah I remember being school and reading and learning about acid rain and and they would show you a picture of the decaying statue of Liberty. But you took steps that. Did it end acid rain? Acid rain damage. Well I was It was fortuitous. I was an fortuitous. Means Lucky Okay. You just gotTa State School for maybe a year. Okay I was. I was Happen to be in the right place at the right time. I was Lieutenant Governor Massachusetts and I worked with the governor of New Hampshire John Sununu and the governor of Ohio. Dick Celeste and we focused on acid rain because lakes and streams were dying. We're losing fish there. Were there were whole lakes where nothing would live. Because of the acidity that came in the rain and it came from the sulphur that went up into the atmosphere from call from coal burning and the power yes ugly so we came up with a mechanism that was actually based on how the market place works. You know supply and demand. Yes and it was called cap and trade. We were able to buy the limits on what people could put out and you trade this way and it actually created a marketplace so They worked. I mean we put it in place we put it in the clean air. Act actually when I went to the Senate years later and it worked it actually has reduced. Now you don't hear about acid rain is problem. What's happened is the ideological extremism that exists. Today right has made discussion of cap and trade a complete. No no okay. People won't talk about it they won't even entertain it something we could do. Yeah with respect to carbon dioxide emissions one of the largest contributors to greenhouse gases are politics have gotten so polarized so screwed up that we can't get done. What is that? What makes sense? Yeah so we're not getting anything done sufficient to deal with the problem of global climate change. I'm really Charles Schumer so I've spent some time around politicians and it seems to me like there are a couple of different sort of categories of politicians. There's some real earnest people who actually want to make a difference and then there's some like this is my job. How many sort of categories apologies? Are there like two main categories? You know in. Sort of what motivates them reason to question. I've never never been asked that and I don't think no no. It's an interesting. No it's a really interesting question I I think there are probably two major categories but there are just infinite number of categories. People teenager well. I think it's the people who are just there to do the people's business and who are really earnest and and uncorrupted by it and want to do the right thing and some of them will vote in a way that they know might lose their seat and they lose their seat. I know people who did that when we did the stimulus package when we had the crash of two thousand eight economy was really on the edge and we had to pass the bailout There were friends of mine in Congress who who took a courageous vote and they did lose their seats and they knew they would then. There are the people who will never do that. I mean there's the other side of the ledger. There are people who are craving just to be there and being there becomes the goal in and of itself and they lose sight of what the Constitution requires. The country requires and they just will not speak out And unfortunately that's where a lot of I don't mean to be partisan but the Republicans right now are are really. I think really bad place. They know they will tell you privately. They know that this guy is not on the up and up and that he's He's worth impossible to tell the truth without partisanship is truth in in cap and trade like so those that phrase is that. Oh Yeah Yeah sorry I just my mind. I have those earning disabilities but I was just wondering. I've done some work trying to help. End Gun Violence. And if you say gun control. There's just certain words where it triggers people and they've been conditioned to so is that sort of like is that cap and trade became for this has become that for a lot of people. Yeah it's become Just something that shuts people's minds the minute they hear. You think you're you're gonNa tell you what you have to do right They've been conditioned and it's it's pretty automatic and they think it's also Unfair and things. It isn't but people lose track of that. Once it gets branded right has been branded and is that something like the guy took your thought away. I know I have no thoughts going on seriously. Just zero okay. So you're me you. You're you're pretty but you're not intimidatingly. Pretty nobody's getting you. Thank you very much so I fly a lot. I see everything that yeah the best way to watch. That's what I always say so someone who's like me who knows this is happening. What are the things that we can really let people know about that are going to happen in the next where you are right? You'RE ON MIAMI BUT WE'LL MIAMI problem in Miami is in serious trouble. Yeah and Bangladesh in the island state's. It's really intimidating. Because the ice is melting where because of warmer water as the world gets warmer? The temperature rises. You have the expansion of water. So Rises Secretary of State. I went to Greenland. I went to Foul Bard. Which is weapon northern Norway? I went to Antarctica so I could learn. I wanted to listen to the scientists exactly and what I learned was horrifying because those scientists will tell you unabashedly clearly. This is what is happening. And this is what is going to happen unless you do. The following which reduce the greenhouse gas emissions. We're not reducing them now. They went up last year are as it despite us. China were the second biggest dependent. The biggest defenders China China is twenty five percent of the world's emissions. The United States is fifteen percent of the missions. Europe as a block is about eleven percent world's emissions so you take those three entities you're over fifty percent of the world's emissions so we could we could we tw- There are twenty developed countries which they took the biggest steps of all We could step back from the greatest danger. But the problem is amy that so many of them are making the mistakes of the past and putting in place coal fired power plants in China right now is bringing on major amount two hundred and fifty megawatts of coal fired power. India's bringing on a very significant amount. It is exactly the opposite of what we ought to be doing. And it it's a killer. Which is why I and others are now reaching a point. I we're GONNA have to reconnect to voters all across the world where they vote and force change I mean this requires a level of militancy. I think yeah and that's where I am. Now come full circle. I came back from Vietnam. I protested the war as part of Earth Day as part of the Civil Rights Movement Women's movement. Then all of these things and and I thought okay. I've done my part but every year everybody's going to have to come out. And and fighting for this for average devote when we elected.

The Hill criticizes, but does not recant, Solomon articles
"You broke the news that the user but Chris Murphy and other democratic senators met with Zarif the foreign minister of Iran yes and that was my story that we published the federalist on Monday and I tried to get comments from European the other people and should be in there and they declined to comment but one secretary of state my coupon Hey addressed the meeting which had been not approved by the state department then finally Murphy admitted that he had taken part in a secret meeting in the hotel room of the three and that he's done it actually before too and mostly what I find interesting about this is that Murphy isn't as extreme critic of legitimate our conversations with people who are leaders of other countries so for instance when my claim the incoming national security adviser had a conversation intending to de escalate the situation with Russia with the ambassador from Russia Hey kids we act of mercy thought that it was treasonous says with a legal that it definitely needs to be investigated that it was a Logan act violation this is the view also shared by The Washington Post you might remember David Ignatius received that leak about the kids react on call and put out an article about how it is legitimate to think this was the Logan act violation the department justice pursued Logan act violations that happened with the pretext they used to go interview Flynn you know and when was the incoming national security adviser to doing exactly what you should have been and in fact she's been doing with more people were as Murphy is a strong opponent of our current policy toward Iran he has some questionable ties to redeem undead or supported groups and he was publicly opposing our policy the same day that he had this meeting and yet he wants to say that what he did was perfectly fine I'm I'm sure I'm speechless because it's so obviously inconsistent hi is anybody coaling Murphy out on this and were there other senators present the others who were reported to be there any information kinda came because other European countries knew about this meeting even though the United States did not in the state let's not talk about it but some of them are other you know senators were there like men that van Hollen is reported to be trying to get into the meeting on the th and clear if he actually make it into the meeting or not but also reported to be John Kerry who has previously had such woke interactions with Iranian regime leaders and Murphy's defense of what he did with that he sits on the foreign affairs committee he's a senator Hughes and a co equal branch of government he has the right to do this well that wouldn't explain John Kerry being there and so while he was somewhat transparent or claim to be transparent about what they talked about he hasn't been transparent about who else is participating and so we definitely need to know more about well established events that it's a co equal branch of government does that negate the login law violation well first off you know there's a difference in being co equal branch of government and doing your own foreign policy don't lie in the states so I'm asking is is settled is it a an illegitimate defense then well I don't personally believe the Logan act is constitutional that new point was not shared by Obama department of justice or Sally eight Sir James yeah but for general Flynn a great great American all right ruined by on the basis of this right and so if you're going to enforce the login after use it as a pretext to investigate and destroy someone's life and bankrupt them and threatened with prison I don't see why it's okay to do it to Mike Flynn who actually got a legitimate function in right talking with his Russian counterpart but not to use against Murphy who's actually got some pretty problematic attachments with the Iranian regime and sent me water his problematic attachments he'd like to speak it the group then Nyack the national Iranian American council which is forty funded by Iranian regime leaders and started by so we can sell and it was very supportive of the Iranian regime and he was very upset you might remember when senator Tom cotton wrote a public open letter nothing secretive about it at all to the leaders of the other lines encouraging them not to do the G. C. P. O. a with with a bomb and reminding them that you know if it weren't ratified by the Senate with people work much he was so upset about that so they just it's very interesting what Murphy gets upset about and when he does
What's at Stake in the New Hampshire Primary?
"Joining us from Manchester New Hampshire this morning is Concord monitor political reporter Paul Stein Hausser great to have you back again the twenty wasn't twenty four now hours now before the polls opened what what are they open tomorrow at seven AM yeah most towns seven AM most close at seven PM some go till eight PM but it's it's you know ever after the caucuses last week for most Americans were back to normal I guess this is the primary it's a normal election to go in your vote it's not like a caucus though I think most Americans will be a little more familiar with how we do it here in New Hampshire yeah we've been talking about election security in the first hour here so any any sense from election officials in New Hampshire of what they've done in the wake of I would just sort of double check their systems yeah there has been a full force show of force here by the secretary of state's office bill Gardner the long time secretary state up here he had a news conference with the governor the Attorney General to reassure Americans that the results here should hopefully be controversy free these paper ballots up here in New Hampshire on on the voter in New Hampshire I thought my paper ballot and put it in and that's how it works up here it's a little old school you know what old school nowadays with all this hacking at all the history we seen the last couple of elections old school pretty reassuring isn't it we will tell our eyes he's been viewers and radio listeners that the C. span networks have lots of coverage today throughout the state so look for our schedule their C. span dot org and we mention the president also appearing tonight in Manchester seven o'clock tonight but Paul sign Hauser as you watch you wear in the state you think most of the candidates are trying to to focus and why well most of the population in New Hampshire is in the southern third of the state that's where the larger cities mostly are aids in closer to Massachusetts and and the sea coast and that's were mostly concentrated candies concentrate though nobody ignores going up north to the north country to the mountain the White Mountains but most of the population is basically from Concord south down to the Massachusetts wide enough for most of its campaign traffic is traditionally coming out of Iowa Joe Biden said that he took a quote a gut punch what's he been doing differently in New Hampshire he has been downplaying expectations and big time at the debate on Friday night he talked about how he took a hit in Iowa and he said I'm likely to take a hit in New Hampshire the next day on Saturday he had a news conference I was there I I asked him are you writing off New Hampshire any push back pretty vehemently but but it's pretty clear from what what Joe Biden says what what its campaign tells us reporters that they're not looking for a victory here they're looking to get out of your hopefully for them with a third place finish and move on to the more friendly climate the more diverse electorates of Nevada and South Carolina two states to follow to Hampshire providing South Carolina with that majority African American electorate on the democratic side that's his firewall he's hoping to escape here with a third place finish the polls indicate that might happen but Hey bill in may not in addition to Joe Biden who do you think has the stands the most to gain and the and the like wise the Lok most to lose from the New Hampshire results yeah that's a great question first of all Bernie Sanders the poll suggests he's going to win here but you know what that's expected he's the senator from neighboring Vermont right across the Connecticut River he won here big as he was a huge four years ago when he be the eventual nominee Hillary Clinton by more than twenty points so he's expected to win and if he wins I don't think it's any huge bump out of that because again he's expected to win people does it has a lot on the line here of course he surprised everybody in the political world with that I guess you'd call it a victory but by this this this much right though Bernie Sanders also claiming victory in Iowa but for booted yes now the expectations are much higher and if he doesn't come through well then that is an issue he's been getting some extremely large crowds these last couple days yesterday and all of his the events combined he had more than five thousand people which is a lot up here in New Hampshire so yeah a lot is on the line for him let's talk about Elizabeth Warren the senator from neighboring Massachusetts this is kinda almost home turf for her as well and there's a history of Massachusetts politicians running for president doing very well in Austin winning here thank John Kerry think Mitt Romney right so if she doesn't perform well here she comes out of New Hampshire limping like bite may come out of New Hampshire limping as well as he finishes fourth or fifth that's an issue especially providing because his campaign coffers are starting to get a little thin but for war also if she doesn't perform well here that is an issue which you will continue want and finalists hawk about eighty clover shark the senator from Minnesota one of the latest tracking polls here the Suffolk university poll for does the Boston Globe and WBZ came out late last night and it suggested that she has surged nine points over the last two days so we'll say bill I mean these calls may be accurate and they may not but if she has a big win here they give her a big boost if he doesn't perform here is that the end of the line for her and finally this talk about a couple the other candidates in an almost exclusively campaigning just here in New Hampshire making I guess you could say there for the final stance like senator Michael Bennet of Colorado all he's been doing is campaigning here told the gap or the Congress went from Hawaii and if Paul Patrick the former Massachusetts governor who's been campaigning here and in South Carolina if none of them perform well here well do they go on and finally I I I don't leave them out cause injury and was really rising for so many months but the a tech entrepreneur had a disappointing finish in Iowa he says New Hampshire is a natural place for him if he doesn't have a strong a word a

Sanders and Buttigieg aren't competing for the same voters Tuesday. But they are competing, and fiercely.
"Good morning from Manchester the final days of this New Hampshire primary are always frenetic candidates criss crossing the state add saturating the airwaves new attacks on the stump and across the internet as we come on the air this morning the latest tracking poll show Bernie Sanders and lead people to judge right behind with moment in out of Iowa Elizabeth Warren Joe Biden Amy called which are stuck in a second tier was survival on the line our debate Friday night was the feisty is this campaign the attacks continued all through Saturday and I sat down with former vice president Biden right after emotional speech where he took on his opponents and the president I lost a lot my much like many of you have correction took away my wife and daughter lost my son beau like many of you don't but I'll be do if I'm going to stand by and lose my country to we began the interview with those first lines from Friday's debate were biting seem resigned to a loss here in New Hampshire now let's be realistic I think it's always coming up to fight when you're running against two people who are neighboring senators you know the deal for anyone here and every senator by twenty points last time so I I think it is an uphill fight but I think it's a fight will do moment but then you're gonna be looking history because you know that you know the history here no one is coming hello second in Iowa New Hampshire has ever won the nomination well no one is ever won the nomination without being able to get rumors force now African American communities and so far no one's been due to that but me look the thing that changes a selection is everybody in the Democratic Party June on one thing you have to be Donald Trump in order to do that everybody knows you've got to bring out the black vote and the brown wrote he got to be able to do it I've been able to do that so far so I don't think it's viewed the same way as it has been in the past even taking the right to to mayor Pete and I basically been organ he's not ready to be president I did it with the back in two thousand seven reset another candidate was when the president was Brock upon your **** you ready he said I think he can be ready but right now I don't believe he is the presidency is not something that lends itself to on the job training I think that I stand by the statement let's get some straight here I did the tech Pete Peterson attacking me he's been saying the reason we're in the problem right now is because of the recent past that's eight years will bomb in may I don't get the I don't understand and I think he is completely misunderstood or misrepresent my record I'm doing a great deal I've gotten off line don't both as a senator as vice president and he talks about him be ready well I managed at nine hundred billion dollar recovery back with no waste or fraud it would build out his city I led the fight the president turned music get to try it out of this mess I know how to handle a city I was able to get to try it back on his feet that's why the merited toward indoors I've been I've been able to get the chemical weapons treaty passed I was responsible in large part for the what happened in Paris with John Kerry and so on so I don't understand how those things don't matter and I don't understand when they talk about the past why Barak was such a lousy president there's a pretty damned good president is locating people to judge a risk because people ages is been nothing more and he's a good guy I like him he's a smart guy but he's been the mayor of the city smaller in the city right now is what has he done what is who is he pulled together does he knowing the foreign leaders has been able to I mean Barak Obama was a different story Barack Obama came from a large stadiums United States Senate run before he'd been involved in international he had a clear vision of what he thought the world should look like and so on so but it is very different situation your campaign put out a pretty tough video on the mayor earlier today they also reference the fact that he had fired an African American police chief in an ad and forced out in African American fire chief are you basically saying that the mayor but a judge has a race problem no no I'm saying he had been able to unify the black community that's what I'm saying the the most senior members of city council African American momentum doors me I never met the rest for the doors and so I think look in order to win George you're gonna have to be able to win states like Pennsylvania you do have to be able to win Florida remember even when a lot of places in fact I'm very diverse populations and so the assertion that he's ready across the board I don't see it I haven't seen that yet he's fired back today the campaign said that the fact he put out the video says a lot more about where you're where you are in this race and his record as mayor hello he's the one's been attacking me George I never said a word about him please talking from the beginning about how I don't have a record to run that by and all the problems from the past it was used to be Barack and me now I found out how probably Brockes so it's not just me as if I were named part of history and so I was responding to I haven't done this I responded to his attacks on me he also talked about the risk of taking it Democrats taken the label democratic socialism international election we surprise last night when only senator club chart join you in that concern no I was surprised but I think it's just a reality I mean look I have put in the late one Bernie Bernie calls himself a democratic socialist how you been around George as much as anybody you could win with that label your help somebody in Florida went with a label democratic socialist is every was going to go all the way down the line that's just gonna happen when North Carolina can win Pennsylvania you gonna win in those states in the Midwest it's not I'm not I didn't put a label Bernie calls himself a democratic socialist
"john kerry" Discussed on WCBM 680 AM
"The DNC and you know what worked with other Democrats and things like that it's this it's the same people they all know each other they all hang out there all nice to each other and here's a little secret for the most part not completely but for the most part when the cameras aren't on the Republicans and the Democrats that you see arguing on the floor of the house and the Senate they get along pretty well when nobody's looking when they're not talking politics but that's not the show they want to put on for their bases well look at John Kerry John Kerry step son is involved with hunter what is it is soon as hunter got hired at the reason why he released a statement saying we got nothing to do with this he knew it and this is back you know before this what became a scandal he made sure to distance himself because John Kerry's son recognized this is a little bit sketchy now John Kerry steps on his what was his last name is Hines he's got a piece of that Heinz ketchup fortune so he doesn't have to take jobs with companies that are sketchy is filthy rich already but it's telling that again they all sort of work together they all go to the same private schools they all go to the same elite colleges they all role in the same circles and they'll take care of each other they'll take care of themselves and they do it often times at our expense and at the expense of the public trust Ralph I appreciate the phone former fern yeah I wanna say rom rated considers himself a four inch because the family connections and all it's going down in history as the Manchurian candidate of the selection maybe but I don't the thing is I don't think men run he's going down in history at all I think history is going to remember him favorably or unfavorably which is probably worse for somebody who wants to be remembered is the reality that they just simply won't be appreciate the phone call we'll get more your phone calls after this message and data rates may apply earning your degree from one of the top business schools in the country might sound impossible to fit into your workload but.
Lessons Learned From The Iowa Caucuses, And Danger Signs Ahead
"I'm encouraging everyone to get out and give a separate the clapper Joe Biden I don't know the results and I with the I know we got rolled over last night he lost the lot he lost third fourth or fifth place we'll figure it out in the course of the day I'm joined by Byron York of the Washington examiner to talk about three things is state of the union tonight the impeachment acquittal tomorrow and the Iowa fiasco last like good morning Byron good morning June which order and were you up all night no I wasn't actually I actually I will I will tell you on our caucus story which is as you know there are a few journalists here in the morning and and all all of them were covering the democratic caucuses so I thought to myself I get here on Thursday in time to go to the president's rally it was clear the president I had a pretty large operation in Iowa and it was not because he was terrified of Joe Walsh or bill weld it was because he was trying to win the general election to get it in the bag while Democrats were still struggling to find their candidate now we didn't know how much how struggling they work so what I did was I went to a Republican caucus last night in Ames Iowa but forty minutes north of the mind and if they did this radical they voted once they counted the votes and I reported the results all my gosh you're kidding me and so it what was interesting you know AT and another thing I did years I I also went to a campaign event from Joe walls the former Republican congressman who is challenging the president does want to see how how this worked out and I don't know if you've seen the results but statewide from one ninety seven point one nine percent of the vote and walls one one point zero eight percent and bill weld on last year's governor one one point two seven percent so so Joe bill Burr Joe beat Bill Joe Walsh rebel our world no no no no bill weld bead Walsall world world up one point two seven percent to Walsh's one point zero eight percent that's got a first test for never come Republican challenges and it did not go well that's got a thing to lose to Bill well I'm sorry Joe Joe used to be on the Salem radio network and and it and so sorry Joe our condolences Byron let's talk a little bit about the hunter gatherer aspect of the trump campaign when it comes to data because I believe that's what the rallies are about I believe that with the caucuses were about the president's gathering that you attended on Tuesday night they are looking for the data they are and and they're also looking to make an impression the for people who might not remember in nineteen eighty four in February of nineteen eighty four Ronald Reagan as president he's headed to a huge reelection he certainly has no we nomination worries and he comes to the moment and that's the point in Waterloo used to rallies on caucus day when the Democrats are trying to choose their candidate and the Democrats are outraged the service is done it is not worthy of a president but Reagan did it and he really kind of took some of the oxygen out of the room for Democrats now Jeff Kaufmann who is the chairman of the Republican Party here and I was set back in June he told president trump about this and you know Mister president and Ronald Reagan did this in the end if growth Democrats not now I think other people probably recommend this as well but sure no problem was here and got in about seven to eight thousand people it great university and would that was far greater than any other Democrat in the event that any Democrat had plus trump brought a long list of circuits his his family cabinet members members of Congress Republican governors I was that the the caucus where Donald Trump junior spoke and they stepped up their social media and as you say they got all the information everybody came to the rally and then of course you have the information for value comes to the to the caucus and by the way they registered to vote a bunch of new people last night as well now they will move on I think yeah election effort but I think that circus will move on to New Hampshire even as the zombie campaign of Biden struggles forward the president tweeted thirty seven minutes ago by right New York the democratic caucus is an unmitigated disaster nothing works just like they ran the country remember the five billion dollars obamacare website that should have cost two percent of that the only person that can claim a very big victory in Iowa last night is quote trump close quote I don't think the president's going to allow this to pass I'm remarked upon all day long any may even bring up the state of the union Byron York I would think I would think and and by the way it it does appear that that vice president Biden did not do so well and I did go to his last event in here in deadline before the caucus and I will I will say though just a few things one the the questions about whether he has the vigor required for a long hard campaign those are really open questions that really he's not a high energy campaigner at this point he brought circuit like Chris Dodd and John Kerry which really gave the impression that he is a man of the past not really electrify anybody from the stage with use the most important thing was really interesting you spoke for more than twenty minutes and did not mention any of the Democrats most important issues no healthcare no climate change no gun violence no tops Isshin it was really extraordinary all he talked about without terrible crumple as any displayed no vision for the future beyond bringing things back to how they were when Joe Biden was in office so I you know I think a lot of Democrats look at that campaign is that this is just not working and when we do finally get results from last night we'll probably gonna see that the team by noon put out at five hours ago by bill Russo any campaign saying they wanted putting out in completing numbers is contributing to the chaos and misinformation they would like very much to move on before a fourth or fifth place finish is finalized I don't think they can escape that Byron but let's turn to impeachment I believe there will be an acquittal I don't know if it will be bipartisan do you have any reporting on that I don't I do not have any insight I I do know that efforts to try to censure the president I think you're completely doomed if you remember in nineteen ninety eight there were some Democrats in the Clinton impeachment nine nine or some Democrats who wanted to censure the president and not not impeach him but house Republicans went ahead and impeach the president of course they had a trial and a lot of Democrats who waited he's just been impeached and he had a trial that's a pretty big censure right there so I do not see any Republicans in the Republican supporting the center specially wanted strongly worded as Joe mentioned was circulating yesterday now I also want to make sure I get your reaction Byron I begin the program by saying lord bless and keep Rush Limbaugh I'm a prank I don't know if you are but he the ease the fellow who built the talk radio mall I just got a I'm a tenant like everyone else

"That's one of the advantages of having somebody known and trusted and liked like Joe Biden. Because it's really keyed and not have to play catch up to introduce yourself and go through a whole lot of stuff though i. There's obviously an introduction process. No matter who you are this is not the same and And I think we have to be really wary the circular firing squad in the Democratic Party. I mean it hurt Hillary enormously to have Bernie carry on all way out. I think that's why I always important in New Hampshire important to Kennett like Joe and others if joe is does really well and doesn't have to win Nyla but if he does well in Iowa or if by chance he were to win it and go to New Hampshire and when it he's the nominee it's over and I think you know then Bloomberg it doesn't figure into it and the others just have no justification for continuing on and hopefully they will see that but if on the other hand and This thing is spread out in Iowa And the same thing happens in New Hampshire for sure you will have With Bloomberg playing in the Super Tuesday and money running out for other candidates This thing will really be bad for the Democratic Party and Where we are? I'm hoping that's not going to happen. Yeah come back to that just quickly in a minute but as it relates to Biden I mean. I think that we're always surprised in these campaigns but it seems to me one. I think as much as you can say anything's effect. If Joe Biden Win South Carolina you know I think that probably means he did well enough in three states beforehand to allow that to happen but it seems to me if you win South Carolina. He's going to be really really hard to beat. Doesn't mean when a majority of the delegates because I think African Americans support would then be strong. Latino support support working You know voters across the country. It seems to me that data is really. I mean. I was obviously so important because it influences that. But but but think about it. Now you you obviously No South Carolina. You endorsed Barack Obama. And that was an important reason. We got the momentum to win South Carolina. And that was you know probably. It'll be the decisive moment for us and allowed us to go in February with enough strength back. Then in this case it's March More most of the country will vote. But as you think about this is south. Carolina mean. Lina fighting can win South Carolina. It seems to me he's going to be difficult to stop. Well are you saying wins. It doesn't win New Hampshire or Iowa. What in any scenario? So obviously I agree with you if he wins. Iowa and New Hampshire. Wins Iowa New Hampshire and then South Carolina. It's over but even if he does win Iowa in New Hampshire but he somehow you know obviously if he comes in fifth and no states it may be not possible to win South Carolina but if you win South Carolina so there's a scenario where that's the capstone of those first four states there's also scenario where he's bleeding a little bit but he wins South Carolina which by definition means no one was able to get real strength with the African American vote which none of the candidates today burn shows a little bit of potential there. But yeah but it by you know better than anyone again this. That's a very important message to the party. And people elsewhere as you go into these other states and Super Tuesday. I think that if he's has got a strong African American base that has showed up and helped him win in South Carolina and he's also got Hispanic etc.. He's very strong going forward. Still Right last political question. We'll get to some of the stakes of this election from a substantive standpoint so you mentioned and I agree with you. I think if we don't really have our nominee until July Even June the advantage that gives trump is huge. I mean we as you know Very well We're benefited from defining Romney early as he was going through his primary George Bush was able to do that to you Clinton was able to do it to Dole. I think you make an interesting point that that it may be hard to do that to abide and just because he is better known than some of the other candidates. It's but I mean how worried should Democrats be mean. Could we potentially lose this election in the next five months or is that as important as the last five months so I think it might be but I'd be curious to get your view on that boy. That's a really tough question. I I don't think so. Not with impeachment and not given the numbers that I see on Donald Trump anyway I think that we're at otherwise. Maybe that I don't think so. In this case I think this impeachment is going to be a searing process Assis I think Republicans are underestimating. The state of the evidence in the nature of the crime. And I think it's going to be a very very tough vote for some some of those senators who have just been toeing the line up until now I mean what we saw it with less than his testimony. I'm a former prosecutor. I'm I'm listening to the folks in the White House. Say Well He's a you know he's a criminal and the lowlife guy you can't trust because he's indicted well you you know and indicted guy who continues to lie. Goes to prison for sure for longer so nobody his lawyers are not sitting there letting letting him lie and he has zero interest to step up and lie because he's really GonNa be hiding behind bars for a long time. You don't approach prosecution and suddenly start talking the truth in ways that are going to compound your situation so I just don't buy this quick dismissal. And they're going to have a hard time making that work and secondly We had an old saying when we prosecute you know when you when you're prosecuting the devil. You don't go to heaven your witnesses and sure he's flawed the absolutely he's flawed But boy when you compare it to the lies that are compounded now and compounding still to the cover up that goes on even a cover cover up on the ran you know they say well when you have an imminent decision you have to make your decision. You can't notify people. There is nothing about it. We now learned that he made it on decision on the golf course in June months ahead of time and this has been in the works for a long time. I think America's tired of being lied to and I think it is imperative that we we remember that as we go forward here. I don't think this dynamic will shift that dramatically and in my judgment we deal with a very unique circumstance Also I think once it's clear let's say Joe is the nominee there's going to be a massive amount of money assembled because Republicans are also also deserting their party people are switching saying I cannot vote trump not gonna vote for him again so he has his base yes he does but he does not have an enormous capacity Pasadena grow and I'd much rather have our numbers in a sense than his numbers going into this race and typically finding a watch that it's high quality Good looking and precise cost a pretty penny even more than that than Shero watches here to try and change all the charts our newest sponsor and we're super excited about about that to folks over adventure. Were Nice enough to send me a watch. They've got a bunch of different models but it's the robe and I love. It looks great. It's light I can even wear it while I'm exercising exercising too. It's just a great all around watch these bold luxury watches or also great conversation starter. Why because they immediately establish the a person who's wearing them? Hopefully that's you as someone who's got great style. They've got collections. That range from traditional dress watches the sports watches and everything in between so Ventura has a style for every look occasion and price point. Been Shero is spelled V. I N. C. E. R. O.. Why overpay I pay for a watch?.

"Our guest today is going to help us sort through Iowa the rest of the primary and the general election and just as importantly the stakes of this election secretary of State John Kerry for the United State Senator Presidential candidate Democratic nominee in two thousand and four has really unique perspective. He was running. Oh four and was in third or fourth place in Iowa Iowa very late and really captured a lot of momentum largely driven by electability. So there's quite a bit of similarity between that race and now I think I was wide open and a lot of people concerned about elected bodies. I think you'll have unique perspective on that What happens after Iowa? The the race gets much different. You go from kind of almost running for governor inviolate to to sprinting across the country and flying across the country. So what's that like. And also you know his perspective. On the general election. He was involved in a very close race against George George W. Bush so the last Democrat to run against incumbent Republican president. Some of the lessons we can take from that race and in particular I think how Bush really was able to drive up turnout John Carey Ohio. Most famously added a over six hundred thousand votes over Al Gore's number two thousand and everybody thought that would be enough. But it wasn't because because Bush was able to find and register and turnout conservatives kind of off the radar screen and that's clearly part of the trump playbook so I think he'll educate us about that and and how dangerous it is to be Defined before you can properly define yourself which is one of the challenges. He had no four. Then I really WanNa talk to him about the stakes of this election both from a national national security and foreign policy standpoint but also climate change. He and Arnold Schwarzenegger started a group called World War zero. That's doing some really important work around climate and just have him talk to us about why he thinks.
Bernie Sanders Sits Atop New Iowa Poll Ahead of Caucuses
"For talking democratic presidential politics here a little bit tonight senator Bernie Sanders who is is catching it from all sides because of the momentum that he has going into the Iowa caucuses and according to some the realistic possibility that he might be the one up against president trump the top of the ticket in November so here's a Bernie Sanders leads the democratic field up in Iowa this is a demo in register CNN there's twenty percent of likely democratic caucus goers name Bernie Sanders as their first choice yeah who was with Warren second at seventeen percent but a judge at sixteen percent former vice president Joe Biden at fifteen percent so when you take a look at the margin of error I mean it's still pretty close but it's not the first poll that Bernie Sanders has has been the leader then I will get to New Hampshire polls in just a moment and he's right up at the top there as well and your C. say come on can a few weeks away from Iowa I was one St what's the big deal here what's when you make enormous about well if history tells us anything the last four Democrats to take first place in the Iowa caucuses Al Gore John Kerry Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton they went on to win the democratic nomination now only one out of the four were successful ultimately and yet it is a a glimpse of of history terms of the significance of the Iowa caucuses here's another poll I would Democrats Sanders by noon but a judge tied at twenty three percent Warren at sixteen percent Amy club which are at seven percent and then everybody else's is way down the list so the the the Bernie surge and but he's taken it from all sides this seems apparent to me there are some in the democratic establishment who are looking for a way to take that
Former U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power Discusses Her Journey
"For me to have said one day I'm going to be. UN Ambassador Would Have Been As far fetched as saying. I was going to be on the moon one day out but it didn't mean that I went back to to college and I began to do other things apart from sports. I made myself vulnerable. When into my classes with more diligence with more of a willingness to feel dumb which is never anybody's favorite thing to feel And so by the end of my time in college applied for a different kind of internship at a foreign policy think tank in in Washington called the Carnegie Endowment Somehow got that internships to internships changed my life And the second one which was a year long internship. Right out of college. College was with somebody. Who'd been in the? US government for thirty five years as a diplomat a senior diplomat. So here I was being mentored by him My Name of course is Samantha. He called me Susan the entire year so he didn't really know practiced. It did not necessarily it but in working for him watching his reaction to anything that was happening news. It was always what can be done. And what can I now out of government. An in this weird think tank world. What can I use my little perch to try to make happen? And so from there. I worked there for a year. I began to become immersed in what was happening in Bosnia and after my year with him a decided to try to move to Bosnia Because I was a liberal arts major I of course had no skills Dell's Other than having been a sports reporter and so the one job the one path to get over there and to learn more and to again figure out how to apply. Hi this way of thinking that I'd kind of internalized from him which was what do you do about something. I felt. I had to go there and this think tank was in the same building as US News and World Report. Everything is a combination of serendipity. Suppose and stubbornness marched in one of those Katherine Hepburn Moments. I walked into the Chief of Correspondents Office and I said I WANNA go. And be a stringer for you. A freelance correspondent for you ended up making my way over the Balkans just with a kind of tentative commitment. Mytton from him that he'd take my phone calls and then once they're a group of young mainly women freelance correspondents just embrace me and taught me the ways as of the roads. It was the opposite of everything. I'd heard about cutthroat journalism. The war itself was terrible of course but the community was very nurturing and so why was there for two years decided after a couple years of then breaking through and writing for The Washington Post and the economist and the New Republican other very high profile publications locations. I thought you know even at the height of my career. This is the best I'll be doing. I'LL JUST BE A. I'll have health insurance and be doing exactly this and so I thought maybe I should dedicate myself to doing more than just writing about these events and so I came back to America in one thousand nine hundred five and I went to law school school thinking that maybe one day. I could be at The Hague prosecuting the people who were carrying out these kinds of crimes. While in law school I decided to put the experience. I just had in a larger historical context and I looked into the other cases of genocide and mass atrocity. That had occurred in the twentieth century. Ones I knew very little all about going in in law school for a class. I wrote a paper on American responses to the major genocides of the twentieth century. That paper was so long and I decided I'm almost book length and took a year off working fulltime wants. I graduated from law school but continued to work on this book. It took me five years. Publish the book. One of the people who read the book was Senator Barack Obama who had just won his Senate seat in two thousand four. He reached out to me in two thousand five. I went and had dinner with him Eh. US I did. Because I'd seen his convention speech I've been very taken by him and I had been very apolitical in my life prior to go into Bosnia and it was the first two thousand four. The presidential election was the first I'd really been invested in and John Kerry had lost to prison Bush despite the invasion of Iraq and torture. And and so I've been pretty crushed in the wake of the two thousand four election to see what I thought were really problematic practices seemingly being affirmed by the election and yet there was this bright spot in Barack Obama when he reached out his scheduler. Said you know next time you're in Washington. I'm like oh I just have might have it if they have got to be Washington very soon. Thank you very much are kind of style. We like a little a little creative license so I met him for dinner and as soon as I sat down with him and he started carded grilling me on my work. I asked him was he going to run for president and he's like no way with that be. I just got here. There's a lot in a narrow going to pick apart. I want to go back to your childhood. And how you Garoppolo. You mentioned being an immigrant and I want you to take us through. Your childhood was like so I went to a Catholic Girls School in Dublin Ireland. My mother was an amazing athlete. As well as has a very determined would be physician she had been told teenager that there was no place for girls. It's or women in medicine and so she had been diverted from her dream of becoming a doctor and had gone and gotten basic science degree and then a PhD in biochemistry but all she ever really wanted to do was treat patients and he'll people so she late in life went back to medical school so in my childhood while I was at my Catholic school she was was doing all the grueling rounds of medical school she was just one of these miracle jugglers still managed. I felt to be very present for me Eh but just one foot in front of the other extremely determined women to this day. She runs the kidney transplant. Department at Mount Sinai in New York she seventy-six instill treating patients. If you of your listeners. Have Kidney Issues Vera Delaney. Is Her name again. Don't tell her I sent you. That's my mother. And my father was wonderfully loving in many ways live for me and my younger brother but was an alcoholic and as I got older as child his drinking got worse for me. He had had a benefit. If you can even say that which was he would collect me from school. Bring me to the pub. I spent more hours than I can. even begin to remember at the pub with him which has all of the negatives associated with that of course but also meant that I was just a few steps away from my dad at all times. The things that I was struck by what you wrote in the book was your parents did not have a terrific marriage and you were open about that and and I would love for you to talk about. How growing up non environment as you talk about being exposed to very adult things with your dad how that shaped you for a career in diplomacy well my first diplomatic gambits were a big failure In so far as so many children would do. Oh my fantasy was to broker some kind of reconciliation between my parents not really able to comprehend what the drink drink can do. When somebody is addicted to anything? How much more powerful that would be than anybody's diplomatic overtures especially that of a seven year old or eight year old but I really as a kid I think just pined For a more traditional family life one where I could have my brother my father my mother together in one place. We came when I was nine to this country and my father when we went back as part of the visitation rights. He tried to keep us and and in a dramatic scene. Christmas Eve nineteen seventy nine. When I again was nine? My mother came in and effectively. Pulled my brother and me Out from under my father and said if you WANNA see the kids you're gonNA have now come to America. My father then didn't come couldn't come couldn't get his act together the other two come he'd have been the first to say and then died very suddenly and so I think the real lasting legacy for me which I do. Try To unpack is what does it mean to carry with you. A sense of responsibility or a sense of guilt and kids exaggerate their agency. Think of themselves weirdly right as both both small and dependent on their parents but also as larger than life as if they have all of this power and thus if they quote unquote failed to save somebody that somehow it's on them. We look at your book which is sitting next to me right now. The education of an idealist. I'm struck by how you were able to construct idealism awesome as such an important part of your identity when you had a really rough childhood and you then after going through school chose does a career path where you saw really horrific things that this world can produce and I think for a lot of people that can go through that and have a Lotta anger or they could be depressed by that. But you didn't do those things and instead really shaped who you are. How does that identity come to be? How do you reconcile that screw question? I think that Mydeal ISM has never taken the form of believing that the world is an inherently. Aren't we just place. I think it's my idealism is of the form I suppose of. Should we try to make things better and I think while it's true. I had this trauma in my childhood. The trauma of the rupture my parents marriage initially and then and the sudden catastrophe for any child of losing my father who I love so much but I always for some reason also had a sense of my good fortune in here I was in America. Everything was big and shiny and there was more of everything. I didn't have the same anxiety that we had economically as a family in Ireland is so many families did but I think you know to a lot of people have today an impulse. which is Gosh? The world's really messed up. I want to do do something about it to me. That's idealism it's it's not that the you see the world through rose colored glasses not that you see things as trending right now in in the right direction I mean whether it's climate change or mass migration inequality me too. There's just so much messed up but I guess I did have in my mother a model of someone who just got on with it she just put one foot in front of the other and so I think my feeling has always been. I'm lucky even if I've had some unlucky chapters and how am I gonNa put my good fortune to use because there are other people who don't have the platforms that I have who don't have the voice the microphone in front of me as I do right now and I don't know where that glass half full versus half empty approach comes from but very quickly in my professional life. I began to see people who are making a difference and so I think on one level even. If I wasn't always making the difference that I saw to make I always tried to focus on on those who were and to say look. There is a path I may not be on it right now. What I'm I'm banging my head against the wall but I have always gravitated toward stories of people who have found a way to transcend stiff
At least 56 killed in stampede at Soleimani's funeral
"Start the hour again in Iran where a stampede during a funeral procession for General Qassem Sulamani left dozens of mourners. Dead Secretary of State. Mike pompeo reiterated today that the US will abide by the laws of war if it retaliates any retaliation by Iran he was asked about President. Trump's threats to attack running in cultural sites NPR's Mary Louise. Kelley is in the Iranian capital. Tehran and joins joins us now once again Mary. Louise let's start with the stampede. What more can you tell us about that? Hey it's an awful event what we have our reports from Iranian news agencies of several dozen people. It sounds like who were killed in the stampede. This was in the city of Kerman which is a big city in southeastern turnaround about five hundred miles from the capital Tehran. Where I'm speaking to you from And it is the hometown of Kassam. Soula money so oh the body has been making its way through cities in Iraq and now Iran these last several days. This was to be the last procession where mourners owners could come out and more than he was to be buried today obviously events Got Out of control there. You sat down today with the Iranian Foreign Minister. mohammad-javad Hamad Javad Zarif. Let's listen to a little bit of what he said to you. This was an act of aggression an armed attack albeit a cowardly armed armed attack against Iran efficient encoding territory it amounts to war and we will respond. According to our own timing naming choice it amounts to war and we'll respond according to our own timing choice. What did he tell you about the options? Iran is considering four response to the killing of money. Well that was exactly the question. I was trying to pin him down on as you can imagine and you will be stunned to hear. He did not telegraphed to me. Exactly what Lebron's next move will be. He was very clear. As you got a sense from there there will be retaliation. There will be revenge. He spoke talk about how about people's feelings here hurt and the outrage here and you could hear it. Sulamani was was a close personal friend of his and you could hear that the determination termination that this country will act. What exactly they will do when exactly they will do it? He wouldn't go there He said they will respond at a time and place they're choosing. I will say we heard from a different top official here today. Says a man named Ali Sean Connery. He's the top official on Iran's answer to the National L. Security. They're they're National Security Council and according to Iranian media he has said they are considering thirteen specific options for retaliation in which means journalists are now scrambling to try to figure out what those thirteen are What about the nuclear deal? We heard Iran say in the last couple of days that they're not going to be complying with the main parts of it but it sounds like they may be willing to come back to the nuclear deal at some later point. Can you tell us more. About what Zarif said about the nuclear deal sure and this is also personal sheriff. It's worth noting he. He is the one who negotiated on behalf of Iran. Back in two thousand fifteen when it was John Kerry at the state eight department was the it was the two of them who sat down and really hash this out. I asked him today. Point blank is the nuclear deal dead. He conceded it is not good news for the deal. He said specifically specifically going forward we will cease compliance with the limits laid out in the deal in terms of centrifuges but as you noted he he was emphasizing they are suspended spending compliance not cutting it off forever he said should circumstances change should Europe which is still party to the nuclear deal. Find a way to ease the the sanctions that Iran has come under that they may well find their way back into full compliance and and that international inspectors will still be allowed into Iran. So that's it's another not good news but watch the space for what exactly Iran decides to do and what their next action is. Finally Mary Louise We. We spoke with you a day ago. What has changed in the last twenty four hours as both the United States and Iran worry about the possibility of war? Well I'll speak to just what it feels like here It's it's a normal day yesterday. Most people were off work because they wanted to observe here in Tehran The procession of Sulamani Casket through the streets and the funeral services were held at Tehran University and many many hundreds of thousands perhaps more than a million people turned out for that so that was a very different feeling today. You see people out buying bread going to work. You asked me yesterday. Does this feel oh like a country on war footing and the answer is yes and no people are out taking their kids to school. I saw somebody walking his dog down the street this morning. Life continues as you would imagine. And yet he's walking his dog. Underneath this huge billboard showing Sulamani portrait and is describing Sulamani as a martyr and saying retaliation is coming. So that's what it feels like to be in Toronto right now that's NPR's Mary. Louise Kelley joining us from Tehran. Mary Louise thanks so

Trump thumbs-up photo with orphaned baby in El Paso sparks controversy
"One of the things I think he is probably the worst president in the history of mankind is going into let's say a plague Judy is happened a disaster in trying to sue the people trying to do the right things we try to emoting console them this picture is sickening this picture is wrong on so many levels and there's so many finger point state or finger pointing to go on but again it comes back to the president how would you as a remember this guy's children to how would you as a parent or how would you as a person want to even do this picture I I thought it was an interesting but did comment that that person made I don't know who is speaking there that it should have been staged ever how bout you don't stay let's talk about the actual picture okay so he is at the hospital in el Paso there is a man standing to the right of him our E. has the First Lady standing to the left of him and she is holding a baby now the baby she is holding is now an orphan the baby she is holding you probably remember this story when the gunman went in to that Walmart and started shooting people there was a dad and a mom who shielded their baby from gunfire and were killed and that's the baby that malign your trump is holding and Donald Trump has a blank eating grin on his face a big smile and a thumbs up what comes down to you because I think it sucks I think it's a terrible picture and you've also got mulanya there smiling eyes though as though they're they're they they rescued the baby which doesn't make any sense to me either nothing to smile about not overall no reason to take a picture with that child there you go and that's why I say there's many fingers to point here the people on either side are the biological family of the baby why would they agree to this I don't know but I'd I'd I want to give them some grace but I'm having a hard time the hospital why would the hospital allow this child to be photographed like this because now the child is not an anonymous child the child is now at the center of a controversy which the child has no choice this two year old has no choice and now much like the Elian Gonzalez remember that that photo of the person going in from the swat team trying to take Elian out this person is now this little babies at the center of of of a political controversy which I can't stand and this president has allowed it he goes to el Paso and and also I think you tried to do good he just doesn't get it yeah he doesn't understand where he is he doesn't understand that there are families that are planning funerals and he's sitting there smiling with his thumb up as though he's been successful in what nothing exactly I mean you X. he doesn't have anything to do with the shooting in el Paso no I know a lot of people argue all well right right is that we're not even to get into that if he's going to a place where tragedy struck there's no smiling and there's no thumbs up and I don't know why you would want to bring a baby into into a picture like this if you want to listen if if no one you trust what to go behind the scenes and hold the baby right good yeah I absolutely I think that's great don't bring the baby out for a photo op you said something interesting to that this may lose him the election now I didn't I didn't know not really I I in I will use it you know I do is this the photo that we will look back on and say you know that cost him the election I don't know I don't think so I I don't I don't I don't know if you can point to one thing and what we know link I just think when you take a picture like this you've got a you've got to think just this guy really know all right where he is and why he's there because while he was there he bragged about crowd size the last time he went to el Paso and had a speaking engagement it's not a debate over arc a Democrat not about you right right and so I don't think eight AM and this sounds awful but I don't think you'll lose the election based on a photo or a tweet or really anything because he's with his supporters want him to do what he's doing and they will either compartmentalize or forget or kind of go he cringe worthy but you know what he still better than a Democrat and we'll be stuck with this guy for four more years well and you know what the Democrats are doing a whole heck of a lot either and you know I know you can say this better what Beto o'rourke is running for president he is used this el Paso shooting well twelve had on hold to hold on hold axis he is from there as well and I understand why he's building and he's used it and he's you why shouldn't he use it to when it's his hometown if you can I jump that if you think it's okay that's fine it's just not my opinion is he's a Democrat too so I get that is right I just don't understand why you would say he's using it when it's his home town he is using that he's everywhere he's he's talking about he's good to you he has catapulted his his campaign from almost zero percent and now he's kind of moving in the right direction why because he's a politician just like trump and they use these type of of things to look at this picture we look at this picture so take your picture there are there been pictures of you know past presidents in past presidential candidates and you look at it in you laugh like you know the Clinton hugging Lewinsky you know in a crowd yeah yeah John Kerry wins Salih looks ridiculous Michael Dukakis in the tank I mean that lost in the election George W. bush a picture with brownie and Katrina and things that I don't have a job no I I just I mean I didn't know that something look as bad as this would happen but earlier this week when we heard that the president wanted to go you know it's gonna be a lose lose anyway because people are they don't want in there but if he doesn't go any loose it's right all you have to do is just don't put your stupid thumb up and grin while you're looking at a little baby orphan don't take pictures at all don't put any public pictures out when you go to a hurricane ravaged country or excuse me like a state right don't blame it all on Texas you know doesn't well the Texans they were out their boats and they were watching hurricane no they were trying to survive don't go to Porto Rico and throw paper towels IT people who haven't eaten in five days and don't have it don't have a place to live don't go to California where the wild fires killed eighty five people and say Hey I'm just gonna start blaming you know who won all this stuff don't go don't win Charlottesville happens don't say this very nice people on both sides don't do it right so so my bottom line here is is the president of the United States Donald Trump I and I mean this very sincerely should never ever show up at a hurricane at a shooting stay at the White House any disaster no disasters you're the worst I've ever seen at it don't do it I would go even farther and say don't show up in public period don't you can help you out yeah I I I know but he could be he could certainly curtail the social aspect of these rallies that he has or these meetings that he has because all he does is open his mouth and insert is for it every single time we talked about this with was it was it Porter Rico or was it was it used to we actually discussed what what's the over under how many minutes into him landing would it be for him to make a gaffe do something stupid and boy wouldn't it be great if you got in and got out and said nothing of course didn't happen in el Paso no no no no and this was a catastrophe earlier in his presidency where we were actually talk about boy if you could just get in and get out and not do anything it's not it doesn't happen it does not happen with this president I've never seen anything like it thrown yet never sitting on the line you was the one who tweeted it as a mom why would you got to know that you got to know better and as a staff somebody should get on her Twitter account and
First day of U.S.-China trade talks ends; Trump's tariff hike set to take effect
"Day of the U S China trade talks came to an end. And guess what the tariff hike is still said to take effect. So what happen one of the many things we're going to talk about besides the subpoena of Don Trump junior, and what's going to happen there, Kate Delaney as we take you through yet another wild adventure. Who better to do it within the former congressman from Ohio from talk media news, and that would be Bob ney? Hey, bob. Hi, kate. How are you? Sometimes I feel like you. And I are on a log flu bride did you ever ride on any of those? Right. Right. We are. Yeah. It never ends. It's a loop a loop. That's what I mean. You got it. We're stuck in a loop. And we keep getting wet. So we've got these these Chinese trade talk negotiators who they do a couple of days of talks, and they're trying to rescue this trade deal. But it's his collapsing. Something awful. What does it mean to the American people because I say that this show is about how it affects you and me and everybody in in their backyards. What does this mean now that this tariff is going to soar and jump into effect because it's going to really I think ERC the Chinese, and I think goods are going to go up. Right kate. And that's what I like about your shows how the average American is affected. That's your topics and and this one is going to affect them. But I must say in the long term it hopefully will affect them in a positive way. What I mean by that is you know, we gave them most favored nation status temporary twice. And then you had the Gingrich Clinton permanent trade deal. Once that was done that was the end of a China got what it wanted and from then on out it just continued to manipulate us. It continued to drive businesses out then take over that product. And Jack the prices up eventually, which is what they did. And you had, you know, President Bush, you have President Obama, you know, Obama and Romney running against each other. It was who can be tougher on China. And then they all get elected, and they're not tough on China 'cause it's painful to be tough on China. If you wanna win in the end long comes Donald. Trump. It means what he says on this. When Trump has been relentless the only thing that tries government. Kate understand is aggression that anything they understand. If they think you're weak. So the bottom line is. Yes, some prices are going up soybean farmers or having a rough time, but the presence trying to get the end game the long run. So it's either, you know, step forward now and stop this get some pain while we do it some of the average marika's are gonna pay more prices. But if he doesn't do this is just going to continue to go up. So I think it's something that he may win on. And then then we will see prices drop in and more jobs created so yes, some pain, but in long in the long term for the working people some gain if he can put at least some breaks on this madness of what's been going on for fifteen to twenty years here in America. So no gain without pain. I love it. That's the tweet of oh moment for you for sure. And here's something else, you know, going in a different direction as we talk about foreign countries in our relationships and being held. Hostage or the president's stance. He he's certainly saw this that for the first time, the president has acknowledged that he asked members of his administration to examine whether they could prosecute the former secretary of state someone who you know. Well, I believe John Kerry what's going on with that. Because it's they're talking about that saying that he met illegally with Irani and officials. Well, you know on this one everybody that sink congress and travels we had we had a couple of members at one time Kate that went to North Korea. We had some well members used to go to Cuba all the time. And everybody said they're violating the low connect. That's what they always say. They're by letting Logan act and about Iran's government and carry had this friendship with Jimmy the reef for Mr. I think a curious to watch the former secretary of state to be public out there about certain things that you know, undermines the president. But spars anything illegal. I I don't think there. To be able to do that. With Kerry what he's done is not lobbying in a sense. But it's you know, his opinion is a former secretary of state. So I don't think it's going to be any legal action on Kerry. But obviously ministration doesn't like it 'cause carries high profile, and you know, his communication with Iran whatsoever. By the Trump administration is viewed as something they don't want to happen by I just see anything happening illegally to carry speaking with Bob ney, again, the former congressman from Ohio with talk media new, and we get the opportunity to speak with five usually a couple times a week. So here's a something that we've talked about a bunch North Korea. And what's happening there in the bully wars? They now we've seized one of their largest carpet. Does. Apparently, there was a scheme to bring in tons of coal, which would violate international sanctions. So what's up with this? This carrier was a big one. Plus, it's funny. The name of the carrier wise, honest, right and it had cold and they brought munitions before. But on this one, you know, North Korea. Fires a couple of missiles, and then we grabbed that ship. I have a suspicion. I talked some friends on Capitol Hill today, and they agree. There's a suspicion out there that we were talking with North Korea. Probably some of these ships went by we didn't do much about it. We were in communication with them. They fired some missiles we saw the ship, and we grabbed it sort of a message back to North Korea. You wanna do this far missiles, you don't wanna talk fine. We'll start to grab your ships versus no turning our our is away from some of them. And so that's we did under the sanctions, we we stopped it. But again, this is really not. Rating. I I was so hopeful it's so we're so many people up on the hill that watched North Korea in America over the years show to meetings by President Kim Jong etc. Etc. But right now, it seems like the talks are going south in a hurry. And so we'll have to see in the next couple of months. Can they communicate do they want to or is it is it done? I love it. All right. And on the lighter side. So which is better Madam secretary or veep? Madam secretary or beep. Yeah. Venom secretaries on CBS. I bet you haven't seen it veep is on HBO. I'm sorry. I haven't seen either one. Not five not Lor secretary, Anna veep. All right. So there you go who's your favorite veep of all time? Oh, wow. Gee, I mean, everybody made fun of him. But Mike, you know, I like Joe Biden serve with him. So there's are energy. There's I'm gonna pick one from both of them. How's that? I

"Yeah. With reddening, and we have we have information that you don't wanna know about they were very threatening. And we just want to have we have to have great security for this country, and for a lot of other places. Because you could say that always is always I don't want to say, no. But hopefully that won't happen. We have one of the most powerful ships in the world that's loaded up, and we don't have to do anything. What I'd like to see with Iran. I'd like to see them. Call me, John Kerry speaks to Melot John Kerry tells them not to call that's violation of the Logan act, and frankly, he should be prosecuted on that. But my people don't wanna do anything. That's only the Democrats do that kind of stuff. You know, if it were the opposite way they prosecute him under the Logan act, but John Kerry violated the Logan act. He's talking to Iran, and has been has many meetings and many phone calls, and he's telling them what to do that is a total violation of the Logan act because what they should be doing is their economy is a mess ever since I took away the Iran deal. They have inflation that's highest number. I've ever heard having riots every weekend and during the week, even and what they should be doing is calling me up sitting down. We can make a deal fair deal. We just don't want to have nuclear weapons too much has and we would help put them back into great shape. They're bad shape right now. I look forward to where we actually help the run look into her to run. I want them to be strong and great and have a great economy. But they're listening to John Kerry who's violated a very important element of what he's supposed to do. He by the low connect playing the simple shouldn't be doing that. But they should call. And if they do we're open to talk to him, we have no secrets, and they can be very very strong financially. They have great potential very much like North Korea has tremendous potential economically. And I don't think he's gonna blow that I don't think. So. Week.
"john kerry" Discussed on The Axe Files with David Axelrod
"And now from the university of Chicago institute of politics and CNN the axe files with your host, David Axelrod. My first recollections of John Kerry were as a young navy veteran and Vietnam war hero would become one of the most powerful critics of that war in the early seventies. He, of course, went on to become a Senator secretary of state, very nearly president of the United States. I sat down with secretary Kerry for my CNN TV show tonight. It was a really full and interesting conversation all of which you can hear here. Secretary Kerry great to be with you here in your old new haunt Yale University of seminal place in your in your life. We'll talk about that. But. It is a life. That's been dedicated to the proposition that these democratic institutions that global institution diplomacy were important pillars for our country. What what's the state of American foreign policy now deeply challenged deeply challenged to the point of being dangerous for our country and contrary to the goals of foreign policy, which is supposed to advocate, your interests and your values simultaneously. And we're not doing that President Trump has isolated America and taken us backwards in terms of institutions that were structured ever since World War Two to bring the world together. He has really isolated us taking us backwards in a way when we ought to be uniting the world and and coming together, he would say that these. Institutions and these alliances have taken advantage of America. And that he wants to advance American interests. And that is best done by withdrawing from some some of these entanglement. Well, they actually says I think something a little different from that, David. Yes, he argues that there that that for instance, NATO is not paying its fair share President Obama raised that issue powerfully. And I remember the whales G twenty we the president President Obama succeeded in getting the country's all agree to increase their amounts. So that's not a new argument. President Trump pretends it is. Intimates that that this money is going into pot. This is money that these countries concern ourselves to their own defense. So no surprise then who has in the course of his presidency, presented the world more than seven thousand three hundred lies accounted for by major media outlets as lied about that as he has about the reason for withdrawing Moran. The reason for withdrawing from Paris the reason for during let's talk about those because you weren't you were deeply deeply involved in all of those things. But may I say one thing quickly David about the why these institutional important after World War Two. We spent huge creative energy from people idea. Natunas George Marshall and others to restructure the world, really and the Bretton Woods agreement. The the UN all of these things were created to prevent people from killing each other as rapidly as they had been up until then with World War One. And then we weren't to the audacity of what? George Marshall Harry Truman did is stunning. They said we're going to turn around and invest money in rebuilding the countries that attacked us the rebuilt, Germany rewrote accounts. Titian rebuilt Japan rewrote accounced issue. And today two of our strongest allies in the world that our democracies are Japan and Germany, it was investment that the American people were didn't support fundamentally. But that was leadership today without any demonstration of how it will make America safer. Why we need to do this this false presumption that quote America first every president puts America first, they don't do it in the same way that Donald Trump has where he's breaking things apart without any alternative makes us safer..
"john kerry" Discussed on On Point with Tom Ashbrook | Podcasts
"Hey, Tim pay Dominica all week long. Brad Kavanagh will face his Senate confirmation hearings. Yeah, he's President Trump's nominee for the supreme court, and there are going to be a lot of questions about how he could transform the supreme court for generation. The NPR politics podcast will be following those hearings and we'll hop in the studio every day to break down what you need to know. This is on point. I'm NPR media correspondent David Folkenflik we're discussing former secretary of State. John Kerry's new memoir every day is extra. You can join the conversation was John Kerry your candidate in the two thousand four presidential race. What was your reaction to the smear campaign against his service in Vietnam, follow us on Twitter and find us on Facebook at on point radio. I'm speaking with John Kerry. He's the former secretary of state and five term US Senator secretary, Kerry you, you know, in your memoir, you talk about the doubts that that formed and started to crystallize. Even the early stint of your service in Vietnam and you were not, you know somebody writing a typewriter. You were on swift boat. You saw a combat. You saw firefights you even at times turned into what could be the confrontation and were decorated for for your courage and bravery under fire. And yet you came home in were in some ways, one of the most visible young faces against the war. I'd like to place a clip pretty famous clip of your testimony and nineteen seventy-one before the Senate Foreign Relations committee someone has to die so that president Nixon won't be. And these are his words, the first president to lose a war. And we are asking Americans to think about that because how do you ask a man to be the last man to die in debt nam? How do you ask a man to be the last man to die for mistake? But we're trying to do that and we're doing it with thousands of rationalizations secretary, Kerry you write in your book if I'm not mistaken that you went back the night before and we're frantically writing what you had to say, how did your testimony crystallize? Why did you end up wanting to say what you end up saying? Well, I. I mean, I didn't end up saying what I wanted to say. I'd been saying it for a period of time once I decided to publicly oppose the war and to to try to bring it to an end and it wasn't. It wasn't a sudden crystallization. It was a sudden organization of all of these thoughts because I knew I was to testify and I needed to shorten it and bring it together. So I stayed up most of the night trying to pull it together in that fashion, but it really was, you know, it didn't happen easily. I mean, when I first came back from that Phnom I was trying to sort things out trying to figure out how am I going to have have a gain inability ability to be able to help end the war. What's the best platform? What do you do? And a few weeks after I came back, one of my best friends over there fellow by the name of Don Droz was killed in a river in an ambush would be forty rocket hit the pilot house which he was in and the boat went Corinne. Into the banks of the river, and there was hand to hand combat and is a miracle that more people weren't killed, but that event in knowing how he felt about the war and the letter that was written by another friend of mine describing what had happened was there just made me say, I cannot be silent. I have to go out and I have to try to end this craziness. So I did. And and we gained the opportunity when Senator Fulbright asked me to testify before the committee, it was a privileged to be able to do. So I know that there are people who hated me for doing that and years later in the presidential race, it it, it really what would many of the what? What some of the coalescence around the the opposition that engaged in the distortion of my record..
"john kerry" Discussed on Fresh Air
"Television advertisements regrettably. Not everybody will remember this. Not everybody was old enough to have heard it when it happened. So this is one of the anti John Kerry ads used in the two thousand four presidential campaign in which veterans speak calling, carry a liar for what he said. And what other said with the official records had said he done as the leader in a swift boat mission. If you have any questions about what John Kerry's Mehta, just spent three minutes with the men who served with him. I served with John Kerry I served with John Kerry John Kerry has not been honest about what happened in Vietnam. He is lying about his record. I know John Kerry is lying about his first purple heart because I treated for that injury. John Kerry lied is bronze star. I know I was there. I saw what happened his account of what happened. And what actually happened are the difference between night and day. John Carey has not been on and he lacks the capacity to lead when the chips were down, you could not count on John, Kerry John Kerry is no war hero. He betrayed all his shipmates. He lied before the Senate, John Kerry betrayed the men and women. He Cirque with and Vietnam unders country. He most certainly did I served with John Kerry John Kerry cannot be trusted. Swift book that rinse with truth is responsible for the content of this advertisement. Okay. Well, I want to specifically ask you about one of the men. There says, I know John Kerry is lying about his first purple heart because I treated him for that injury who who was a. I don't remember his name. I, I just don't remember his name. It might have been the doctor or the aid effort, which who was in the Cameron bay medical facility where they took the shrapnel out of my arm, but. I, I don't think there was any discussion about what happened with him. He would not have known. He wasn't they. He wasn't on the mission. All he did was take the piece of metal out of my arm the that was his job, and I don't know what he's referring to in terms of what he knows. It doesn't know. But the simple bottom line is we were in a very small boat three of us at night and we took enemy under fire and in the course of that, you know the, that's what I got a piece Robbo in my arm, and I had nothing to do with, you know, quote, getting a first, a purple heart or the bronze star. I mean, I listened to that just again now and somebody said, I lied about quote getting Bronco. I didn't even know I was getting a bronze star. The recommendation came from an army captain that I pulled out of the water who weeks after. I left Vietnam apparently put me in for the metal. So I mean, they just made things up. They made them up right, left and center. And people said, I served with John Kerry that means they served in swift boats, but it didn't mean they were on my boat. It didn't mean they were on the mission. It didn't mean they knew what had happened and they weren't in those cases and the guys who were contradicted them. So what they did was they just built this up with little phrases. It was skillfully done as an attack at Disley. I remember being in Ohio and listening to that ad and I called my campaign. Of course, it's guys, I just heard an ad and if I heard that I wouldn't vote for me. So I wanna talk with you about something that you actually did say, but that the message was used against you also in a way that we see done today, you return from the war opposing it because so much. Of the war just seem senseless to you and the South Vietnamese who we were supposed to be defending. You said, didn't seem to want us. They are. They just wanted to live in peace. So when you came home, you became one of the leaders of the Vietnam veterans against the war. You delivered testimony to the Senate Foreign Relations committee, which years later you ended up cheering you deliver testimony and nineteen seventy-one based on part on your experiences and based in part on the experiences of other vets who you'd her testify at a meeting in Detroit organized by a group called the winter soldier campaign, which was also veterans who were opposing the war in Vietnam. And I want to just play a bit of your testimony about atrocities that had been described by vets who committed them, and now we're deeply regretful about it. It's impossible to describe to you exactly what did happen in Detroit, the emotions in the room, the feelings of the men who are reliving their experiences and yet mom, but they did. They relived the absolute horror of what this country in a sense made them do. They told the stories of times that they had personally raped cut off. Ears cut off heads, taped wires from portable, telephones to human genitals and turned up the power cut off liens blown up bodies. Randomly shot at civilians razed villages in the fashion reminiscent of Jinja's con shot cattle
