New York Times Runs Crap Piece, Claiming Tension Between DeSantis and Trump

"My friend reads The New York Times call my attention to this front page peach about tension between Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis It's by time stalwart's Maggie haberman and Jonathan Martin who don't know crap Who probably had a lot of fun writing it They report that Trump had become unhappy with desantis because the Florida governor won't say he'd step aside if as seems likely Trump decides to run for president in 2024 How many here believe that if Trump runs in 24 Desantis would challenge him Zero According to the times Trump believes he says what justification I think that he put desantis on the map From this Trump concludes without justification I think I'm just reading what he wrote That desantis should not stand in the way of the former president's future political ambitions Trump hasn't yet blasted desantis by name but he ripped gutless politicians who dives the question of whether they've been vaccinated against COVID fearing blowback from vaccine skeptics desantis hasn't said whether he's received anti COVID shots The answer is yes Trump said an interview last month but they don't want to say it because they're gutless and so forth He says I agree with Trump Governors who have been vaccinated should say so to reassure the public the vaccine is safe governors are rejected Out of safety or other concerns should share those concerns with their

GOP Election Success Deals Blow to Democrats

"Let me do the rundown because I'm still in a great mood. Jenkins, Virginia win offers midterm road map for GOP warning for Democrats, opines, the headline of The Wall Street Journal this morning. Voters punish Democrats and lift amid left drip according to axios. A couple of great quotes in the story this morning. Clearly, the president's drop in favorability made it very difficult for the democratic nominee to stay above water. Democratic Jerry Conley told axios D.C. in my colleague selection night event in Tyson's quarter, Virginia. That's what happened. A senior aide to New Jersey Democrat told axios alania Trini, quote, it's insanely clear. The party must reorient not on center left or progressive goals, but on what gets real things done for family. You would think so. How bad was it? The New York Times has a headline story about a little tiny district in San Antonio. John luhan a 59 year old retired firefighter won the seat a blow for Democrats because Joe Biden carried it by double digit points, only a year ago. My favorite headline in the morning in The New York Times from Jeremy Peters and elisa Lerner Republicans pounce on schools as a wedge issued to unite the party as I put online. Headlines are not the fault of Jeremy. He's a fine reporter. I don't know Lisa. Headlines are driven to get quicks. Republicans haven't pounced on anything Republicans have been talking about schools in red and purple states for decades. Virginia is a blue state. And so the education issue is erupted in Virginia, proving that blue states can be turned red when parents see the indoctrination of their children going on. New York Democrats assess losses to Republicans, according to The New York Times, quote, this was a shellacking. Up and down the Empire State Republicans won election at the local level. Reeling from surprise losses, Democrats sound the alarm for 2022 according to Jonathan Martin and Alexander burns the two Bigfoot republic the democratic reporters reporters on Democrats. I think they're leftists. I think they're both Democrats, but they're not, they're just

"So now it's an approved thing you can say it and believe it and as tony pointed out is a litmus test of which tribe you're in if you don't agree the other tribe is evil and they cheat then you don't you shouldn't lead the tribe and you know it's poison but it is out there. The question is can we evolve away from it and the question is how many races to the republicans. Wanna lose. I worry that we're going to win the midterms. Despite the fact we're always trying to lose trump. the democrats are also always trying to lose their progressives is kind of a firefighter who can lose more. But there's just built in stuff in the house that you know a box of hammers with an ironic. Can we can probably pick up enough seats to win. And trump will get a big award and the media will right. Trump is back. His message works you know and that will reinforce it where you're gonna feel it as more Potentially senate races philly in pennsylvania. Yeah could be a really bad candidate. Who wins the primary because trump is behind him. There may be other instances of this. We all remember two thousand ten well. Same with fetterman though that dem's have a great primary going on connor lamb. Who's kinda guy would win that state congressman versus a really charismatic kind of pro wrestling. Looking jesse van bernie your this government fetterman and you know. I know the connor lamp. People are. let's put it this way. They don't think this is going to be an easy lift. No no david. Nothing keeps fish mcconnell up at night more than nightmares of the twenty. Ten and twenty twelve cycle Especially twenty ten because you had otherwise his story year for the republican party. They gain more house seats. That year had In route at half a century but because they had flawed candidates as their nominees in the senate races They were not able to take back. The senate twenty ten am not able to hear. Read himself beset majority leader because they had a flawed nominee race that otherwise should've been Not a layup. But some close very rank in nevada and the witch in in delaware dalloway. Absolutely i forgot the witch. Yeah boy to trump's probably going to buy broom on ebay. My castle would've walked in that seat longtime moderate house. Member would've been a senator preferred you know for a long time. After that right right. Chris coons ended up being the beneficiary insured When we think midterms. I think one thing that is starting to work for biden in the big picture in some individual places. It's not which is mass politics. He's finally gone on offense which is basically. Hey knuckleheads wear a mask get bags needed you know and is putting the whip of federal contractor and it's a winner i mean the polling number shows that mung among among his voters. It's a winner but among marginal almost there to biden voters in play. There's a solid sixty percent that is on his side of those fox news. Poll this week on this. Yeah yeah sixty seven percent of respondents said they support mandatory mask wearing For student teacher. Sixty six percents of saint businesses. You ought to go all in and sharpen it more than mary. Because fighters picked and it's it's a win. well i think that's another lesson of Of california all right..

"This up though and the elder thing is you broke the story jay mart Represented gonzales and ohio whitten. Here's one of the ten who voted against trump He said it was because he didn't wanna put himself through miserable campaign. He said he thought he could win. But that's not the message that people were gonna take away from at the message that we're gonna take away from that is this is trump's party. Yeah and he's gonna run everybody out who he has a beef with. Yeah and look. There is now a years long tradition of republican lawmakers voting with their feet They don't like trump and trump is own. They split they They don't run again. they retire. They quit We've seen this so many times now. in the house and the senate Going back through twenty twenty sixteen This is sort of one more example that they don't like it. But you know what. I say i asked. Isn't this just going to make the party. Trump era folks like you stay and try and fight it and make kind of acknowledged that individually but collectively that clearly Is the fact that this. This is a trump era party. It's almost like you know every time you it seems like the republicans are going to have an advantage going into the midterms because democrats obviously has taken a hit that there something that comes off you know keep this thing somewhat work got it been. Certainly trump in his hold on. The party does give democrats at least a glimmer of hope going into the midterms next year. And i think that might is where there's something to take away from california if you just pound trump trump trump and polarize arrays. Make it about trump best. You can at least in blue states in proud purple states. That's going to make this more interesting. It is particularly in lean blue places. It's still a weapon and trump does everything he can to make it worse. I'm heartbroken over gonzales. That was one of my favorite primaries. Because many of us in the anti-trump republican world were saying all right. The truth is we've got a chance to win a bunch of these trump referendum primaries and in many ways his was the best. You still believe that. Oh look i. I still think a bunch of them can win. But that was the marquee race. Liz cheney if they can coalesce around her new trump endorsed primer opponent of a tough race. Paraly- she can win. I think jimmy butler in washington state is very formidable You know there after her cat codes new york. He's got that thing so well wired he might not even have a primary challenger so there are hopes for. We needed a good media friendly race in a semi blue collar area northern ohio against a trump white house staffer who would run a lunatic but credible campaign. The gonzalves race was perfect. And i know those guys. And i i had a fairly good degree of confidence that he could have pulled it off. But your old buddy. Fred upton has now has a loonie bird. Yeah steve guys. Literally like got a hangar in the suit in the assembly when he walks around forgets to take it out of the blazer. It's gonna go. Jim jordan and go around with his shirt rolled up like a boat salesman now But bottom line is fred. society is going to run again. That'll be a battle. The gonzalez could've been been marquee in a good way. But i'll tell you there's there was a subtext and what what anthony said which i thought came through well in your article. It's i think he thinks he could have run. He didn't really like having cops have to pick his family up at the airport. Threats to members of congress are have more than doubled in the first three months of this year and then finally he kinda tipped at what i hear from a ton of these guys which is it is no fun to be in the republican conference. If you're a patriot like anthony gonzalez. You got the mad. Gates's running around the gym jordan's get dirty looks in the hall. It is a lonely place for patriots. Now which is a heartbreaking indictment of the party there. There's another element of all this. You know yeah. I forget which poll this week or last week had up to seventy eight percent now of republicans who said that they thought. The last election was fraudulent in some way. I was with tony fabrizio. Yesterday was a fellow at my institute of politics. Quarter who's trump's poster and Tony told a group that it would be hard to win a competitive. Gop primary in two thousand and twenty two. Unless at least you you at least tacitly agree with the notion that something was not kosher about the last election. That's like table stakes in his interpretation murphy. It's your world you may have a different view But that's really that's really Disturbing man no in the short term. That's the reality though. Politics is dynamic stuff changes. What's interesting about this whole stalled. the election. Mantra to me is for thirty years in politics. I've been hearing republican partisans. And frankly democratic partisan saying among themselves all those republicans cheat bush told the election. Florida in michigan. Was always like you know detroit. You know what they do down there. That was always kind of like folklore in the party. But people accepted it in terms of they. They would mutter those things. But they accept the outcome. Trump's one who took it from the whispering of the both sides doubting the others decency the hardcore activists in both sides to making it a campaign slogan it open the floodgates..

"Really her march one A really tough You know one thing that mansion in cinema though have taught the progressives is is is one word that is really sunk in which is leverage. Yes letter rings both ways. That's the problem in the house where there are a lot more. Progressives anybody can be an independent operator and tank the deal here let alone five or six of them. There are things that are look. There are things that she could do. She could agree to pass the infrastructure bill and hold it. You know she. Has i think what forty five days to send it onto the white house but that also could elongate the bargaining for another forty five days. She could run the infrastructure bill and have it fail And you know and then try and bring it back but have that be a bracing thing but that has its That's kind of an interesting game of chicken the. Let's stop on that for a minute. It will the progressives if the bipartisan thing is racing forward in the back door chad is about two billion three point five will the progressives put a stake in biden's heartened boat down the signature deal and give the republicans end lesbian bragging rights on the getting something actually done going into hard enough midterm elections. I'm not sure they will. I don't i don't know if they're pulled the grenade pin yet. But i mean the problem is that the question is when do people show their cards. When do people actually. And i. I think j mart's right the the The first step has to be mentioned in cinema showing some flexibility on the number right above above where They are let me ask a question. Just a complete aside. You guys You know senator. Kelly is up for marquel up for reelection in arizona. Next year he ran his whole campaign was him as an independent. he's a military guy not republican democrat. He does what's best for the country and so on Does does all this sort of A flamboyant activity on cinemas part. How does that affect kelly. In any way does it make him look somehow less independent. Does it make him look more like a party man. Does it complicate his his situation at all. I i think there's a risk and remember you know they're all under the the ghost of john mccain brand wiser in arizona who was such a towering figure in their politics so i think he has to be careful. My guess is privately. You know we hear a lot from mansion and cinema publicly mansion kazys mansion and needs primary proof. No other dem could win but quietly. I'll bet he's among the whispers like mark warner who's kind of sent signals that they're they're on the one point five to train to And at the right moment betty speaks up to take a little credit for the quote compromised. But i i agree with your point. I think the number is Is important but it actually does matter. What's in it and you know coral davenport in in in your paper. Martin had a great piece the other day about mansion and the climate change stuff remembers from west virginia. He's right hiding with the coal industry personally and politically and this climate change issue is genuinely a watershed thing for The progressives in the house They think we're at a tipping point. They're all living with the reality that come twenty twenty three would probably looking at a republican congress right and so they feel a sense of urgency about this both because of climate change and the changing of the guard. That's probably going to come And so the question is what can sessions will mansion make in that regard That would be enough for them to feel like they. They got what they need. Well and this is where it gets even more dicey because you know we get beyond talking about the price tag on schedule and start talking about the stop cents at what what. What mansion could go for Because that could thank the whole thing. Obviously you know the the climate element. I think are are even more now. Giving given recent events With hurricane ida in the aftermath and what's striking about the climate elements is even some of the moderates in the house Like stephanie murphy. In florida and josh scott hiring new jersey on climate. They're actually not terribly far removed. From where the rest of the party is now on that issue de an app you just got pounded. There's one there's one week. Lincoln this chain which i think the moderates quietly resonate to which is everybody's in in that world moderator progressive is for climate. But you know if you're if you're doing something about the climate you're not a traitor to the planet if you don't think the answer is a huge blank government check you know. The progressives always have the premise that well if you want to do something about blank and all the heads not well great spend a trillion dollars. And that's that's where there's some weakness with the moderates you know the actual blank check policy equals solution. And that's the issue. I mean mansion. There there are subsidies in there for industries to convert to convert to renewable energy. That is something that mansion that would accelerate the conversion. And that's something. That mansion is is resistant. He's handed at that being on board. Also sequestration of co two emissions which carbon burners like. That's like a way down the road kind of thing. It's not. I mean. I look i listen i you can get out your socialism ship murphy but i i'm worried about this stuff. I'm watching your stay. I'm watching your state burn. J. marts condo in new orleans going under Yeah i don't think the department of federal checks is always answer. If we can move look you know you wanna you wanna do the electric car thing you right now. We pay people seven thousand dollars to buy electric cars. Nobody wants them in europe. They saw a lot more. They also give him seven grand. What's the difference. Your gas is three times as expensive now. I know it's politically impossible but the a lot of the good policy stuff is if you make gas more expensive people buy more electric cars so you know but the death like we can't do the politics on that so vote for a program. We tried to do that ten years ago. You know we that note. Yep kudos i was for it. But the point is having the slogan of climate change does not guarantee effective policies. And that's right life thing. We debate that all day. The bottom line is the progressives do not have the power or the votes to get everything they want and so the question is how much pain and will they harpoon biden. Who needs help right now on the on the infrastructure deal. It's interesting when you start off by saying biden needs to ankle on over to the house or the man over to him. You know. I don't really ever actually ensure we sent him there but we never actually when he was vice president. We rarely used him to influence house votes. Because he's a senator man. Senators don't demean themselves by dealing with the house and you hear this time and time again for house. Democrats that you know biden just does not have the footprint bear. They don't know him as well. really leaned zion's speaker pelosi in cedric richmond who courses in his white house but served For years from louisiana. And the house. And i think this is going to create a challenge for by that he does not necessarily have the relationships over there. Now that said he still president his fate is. They're all the same canoe exactly and his polling is still going to shape the mid term. So you know whether or not he knows. Kirk traitors district in oregon doesn't necessarily matter given that All those guys are are gonna be depending upon him next year being above water and polls they've pin so much to these bills that failure would be catastrophic. Oh yes why. Why can't you guys have to Especially david explain democrat psychology to me. Why can't they get out the blackboard in the conference and say hey. We did one point nine trillion already. You're gonna get another one point nine or two so you're up to four trillion plus big infrastructure bill. You know five trillion dollars. That's a huge win. We're spending the whole thing. It cleaned the trump cove. Money is twice the cost of the second world war. Two the government take a victory here for crying out loud you are. You were talking about it. As a mathematical equation someone else will pull out of blackboard and say childcare. Credit climate change initiatives bernie. Sanders will say if you doing this on the senate side you know. medicare And dental and hearing which has been his sin qanan for about a half a century particularly dental. I wish i had a better dynasty is worked up about that. Okay gentlemen we will be back in a minute but we have to pay a few bills your great old friend of mine.

"Pull up a chair. Attacks on tap with david. Axelrod robert gibbs and mike murphy as we look ahead we will lead. We will lead all the greatest challenges of our time from cova de climate peace and security human dignity and human rights. But we will not go load. Who lead together with our allies and partners in cooperation with all those who believe is we do the dishes within our power to meet these challenges to build a future this all of our people preserves this planet that is president joe biden making his first big united nations speeches president impressive address but that reads a lot worse than the original french here all week week. Who have me out of that disaster. I just created for myself. Who's our incredible guests who are super hack are super hack opened up the curtain nets. Jonathan martin the outstanding political correspondent of the new york times. And a really a guy who could have been on our side of the fence and as a lot of great political reporters. You'd say that a of group but this guy with a passion for the game jay mark. Good to see a for having me. It's good to have you here. It's good to be here now. You underwater where are you know we are. We are by the banks of the potomac not the banks. Mississippi were yeah or dc at the moment a crunch time here in the nation's capital this fall and yeah we should point out you spent part of your time in in new orleans so My wife's hometown where where they're a good bit And thankfully did not incur any damage thankfully the The the lobbies held oncle sam's investment after katrina and and building. The levees worked out. Well they were stood a A cat for hurricane so All well talk about levies. Are the levees going to hold for biden in washington. I think this is. The question is is biden himself. Going to start really getting involved into the nitty gritty of this process This this is hell of a high wire. Act that he's on here and so so far especially in the house guys. He's really kind of deferred to the leadership namely speaker pelosi. You've been a little bit more evolved in the senate obviously having mentioned cinema down to the white house for conversations. But i'm really curious here in the next week is he going to plunge into the house Much more than he has date. And the reason i mentioned that is because the house is for now where the action is cody. Lucy cut this deal in august with her moderates that she would Bring up the bipartisan infrastructure. Bill that passed the senate with sixty nine votes that she up by september. Twenty seven th. That's just here around the corner and you know the question is are the votes. they're pass it. And i think that's what we're biden comes in yeah. This thing is a uniquely democratic train wreck in some ways but it's also classic house versus senate stuff and others. I mean nancy. Pelosi is a very effective leader for her side. She's gotta tell. Essentially a bunch of five year olds. Santa claus isn't real because the three point five trillion dollar thing is dead cinema mansion unless they're lying which i don't believe it all. They've been pretty clear. The votes aren't there. So it's gonna it's gonna go on a diet and it's gonna turn into the one point eight or whatever. I think it'll be definitely do. And the progressives of course who you know. It's funny about this this thing. I'm having flashbacks to ninety. Four ninety five when the republicans mostly under newt were running the house and they were like holding their breath. And you know our way or the highway and getting a lot of criticism. Well if you look at the house democratic caucus it's as stocked with hardcore progressives as the old gingrich cock is used to be with hardcore conservatives back in the nineties so you know i it's kind of back to the future here and they're threatening and i think they mean it that they're going to blow up the infrastructure bill if they don't get santa claus in santa claus in this tortured metaphor. You know isn't common so. Nancy has the tough job of landing that and letting that steam out somehow. It's gonna be bumpy and boy if they screw up the infrastructure bill. That is the big win for biden. Anna do that fast. And i know the politics why they don't think they can but it would give biden. A booster would help him get a better bill on the other side. Yeah well look First of all nancy is operating on the highest high wire that she's ever operate on because of the narrow margin in the house right and so she doesn't have votes to spare. You say it's a democrat. Only think one of the scenarios is that you know. Republicans will come across and vote for the infrastructure. Bill of all. I would not want to be relying on republican votes if i were her Because if i were mccarthy. I'd make sure that she has one less vote that she needs at all times And the second thing is if she tries to a move that bill forward in contravention of the wishes of progresses it just makes The whole situation more difficult in some ways. Here's don't watch for the ken. The white house get involved with this and convince mansion and cinema to offer some kind of a signal. Have that that yasser. You're on the other side of this infrastructure vote. We will support some kind of reconciliation bill three but you know not three and a half but something yes but bet mansions already done that. Mansions already done that. He's already said i'm information. Reconciliation but at one point five they gotta get to where those guys say will accept something with a two and i agree with you that signal has to be sent and does that then give a reassurance to the house progressives the yes we can go ahead before the twenty seven or on. The twenty-seven vote for the bipartisan infrastructure. Buildings we know on the other side of. Yeah we're going to land on the to deal that mansion in cinema. Were vote for some kind of reconciliation. Bill just real bass david. You mentioned pulses highlight iraq. This is not commonly understood in part because in my business the senate does tend to get more attention than the house because the names are better now and especially now that cinema and mansion had become so polarized in democratic politics there. they're almost household figures for For anybody who follows those I was gonna say pelosi's margin effectively on reconciliation is not much different than schumer's by that i mean you know. She's got a three seat majority but in truth she's run a lose. Crowley who democrats on the reconciliation bill. The most likely being jared golden remain. Kurt trader from oregon..

"Headed because we gotta go. We gotta make this a lightning round because you want to stifle our discussion of time. Well we can continue it but we have to include the good people who listen to hacksaw tappan make them understand that. Their letters matter their their letters or emails matter to us sales tax on tap hacks on tap at gmail.com. If you wanna send your questions in. And i i'm going to start off with one for j mart deal. How do you see the potential rubio demings and hasn't sununu contest playing out can both seats flip. Thereby cancelling each other out on the senate total you know. I think marco rubio in a strong position for reelection in part because of his own popularity in florida but also just because a florida has proven to be a state. I'm fairly conservative it. It's hard to argue that it's anything but a red state at this point if you just look at recent history in what. You've got a republican on the ballot with a strong base in literally is home. Base is in miami dade county historically a democratic outpost in the largest county in the state hard to see how a muslim southern dramatic happens. He would he would face a serious challenge. A part of the reason why democrats have had a hard time breaking through in florida is because the republicans have made inroads in miami dade in the last couple of cycles I'm really interested in new hampshire. And i think it's fair to say there is no more important decision In terms of who's going to control the senate next year acs than whatever do yup. The governor of new hampshire runs or not yep. Yeah he's very very popular there. He would be a very tough opponent for the former governor maggie hassen who is the incumbent. Senator there gibbs gowan for you. Man hit me stewart. Wants to know why is it so hard to nationalize house races for example in their campaigns against republican representatives in purple districts in california. Why can't democrats show marjorie taylor. Green lauren bert mack matt gaetz and so on the whole clown car with the theme that a vote for so and so as a vote to put these lunatics in charge of the house of representatives. That are reason why this approach doesn't work. Well i would say. I'd love to your jonathan's answer this too. I mean i i there's nothing easier to nationalize the house races in reality. It's these races that tend to and even to some degree. Now the senate races in which you used to see spending that sort of allowed a senate race in a statewide candidate get their message out and maybe swim a little bit past the the wake of The broader kind of polarized politics. I don't think it's hard to nationalize these races. I just don't know that enough. Voters understand. Marjorie taylor green and bogert and gets enough to to to sway them uniquely to these races. I still think people are worried about economics and other issues. I have no doubt that democrats though will use each of those Representatives in the same way that that republicans us nancy pelosi and bernie sanders and others to get people excited. I just don't know in the end whether it's enough to carry the house. Yeah it'd be a real fast. Robert you house races are extra typically easier to nationalize than senate races surly than governors races. So if he can do anywhere for be out. I think it could be effective by terms of driving master bell the nature of this party in what you'll be getting If they do take over the problem to your point though is that it's mostly high information voters who were familiar with. Who they are. Casual voter may have passed and we heard something about them. But it's not gonna know chapter and verse with these folks have said that's true those high information. Voters disproportionately live in suburbs. Which are a battle. Ground and indicative aria an albatross for republicans gives you the questions in front of you. I do what what what one you ask you number two because it's addressed to me. Jonathan acts only takes questions that are addressed to him. And usually it's from somebody named david and starts with sir Eminent admire but this one actually comes purportedly from ryan. I'm using air quotes there. Axe has been saying for months and he doesn't expect president biden to run again in two thousand twenty four. Why are you so sure about that. And don't you think there will emerge intense pressure from the party for him to seek re-election no matter how old he is because harris will be perceived as a much weaker candidate against trump. Assuming he runs what say you at. I say first of all my s this not a political judgment it's just an actuarial judgment that the you know it is but i also you know and i admit that i was wrong about that. I thought twenty twenty was a stretch and he. He proved me wrong. And he's he's doing very well and his approval ratings are are strong and if he passes the stuff that he is working to pass They could be even more solidified So really it's just a question whether he can run not whether he he should. Runner will run Whether he can run. And i think a lot of if he can run. I think a lot of democrats are gonna want him to run because there. Aren't that many democrats who have the reach. That biden cultural reach. That biden has two parts of the country that you have to win an order when the electoral vote. Remember you only one. He only donald trump by forty four thousand votes across three states wisconsin georgia and arizona and that delivered the presidency to him so yeah i think if he can run their you know age or not. They'll be many many democrats who will want him to run. It's just a question of whether he can in time will tell literally yes time. We'll tell literally guys were at a time.

"Is to show people that yes we can still do. Big things in america on a roger wicker you mentioned earlier. Feels that way as well. And i think that's the hope here is that There are still some things that we can get done but look it's difficult right. The republican party is Still very much linked donald trump. They are having a hard time moving past him again because most of their votes don't want to pass them. I think that is the biggest impediment now. And so i think that has created a huge challenges in the body politic going forward and to be fair democrats have proposed a pretty outside. The ambition of this is not sort of biden coming in with a very modest proposal So i thought i think the republicans have had a hard time with that so no i think we're still in a period of immense polarization. It's not clear. And i think this summer will tour tell us but it's not clear what we can get done But i think infrastructure in policing two issues. I would watch in june july. Can we get progress. Ordeal on those two issues with a tulsa rate. A great you next trip jamar. Where's your next story. Well that's a good question. I'm plotting that right now. It may be close to home because my home state. The commonwealth of virginia is having its primary For governor light governor ag next tuesday so That is coming up here.

"To kind of make room for You know who would be the one that would emerge as the biggest. Arkansas democrat will guess what is now a one party state once again with these personalities jostling for supremacy except for now. The one party is the gop's democrats and what are the is that she's going to win. Very high very yeah. It is a fascinating state. If you're interested in politics of of of states and regions to jonathan's last point i mean it was. It was a holdout among it was southern states for the longest period of time. Mark pryor and blanche lambert lincoln representatives. The senate not too long ago and to your point jonathan. Now there's there's musical chairs going on with republicans and they're just not enough chairs for all of the elected officials who want to run jonathan before we leave your reporting in new mexico and arkansas exit question for you is the best thing you eight in each state. Absolutely in the is being a little fast point. Arkansas place should be involved in this answer. some bit is sure. Well this tells you how. How arkansas has changed lightning-quick two thousand eight mark pryor running for reelection to the senate has no. Republican opponent has a green party in twenty four and twenty fourteen. The same senator. One cycle later does not even get forty percent of the vote. Yeah zone reelection. yeah So the answer your question This is the key question here. does was fantastic and little rock had Super stake in tamales. Dozy plays the iconic restaurant in little rock Although as some folks no the the original is in greenville mississippi but the diversion a little rock. made famous by a certain campaign for president in nineteen ninety-two Still going strong heads will be barbecue. Place called whole hog barbecue. Which is nice you know in new mexico. My goal everytime in new mexico is i want to have green chilis or red chilies usually green chilies every meal breakfast. Lunch and down. I'll i'll wanna chilean some way shape or form at every meal and by god i pulled it off again so yes gives my my exit question for you is if Huckabee sanders wins. Does that mean that there is a an opening for ex presidential press secretary to run for higher officer we got. You gotta think about this. Yeah i don't I don't j. mark to look at the returns in alabama decide whether or not a path for a to the governorship for former white house press sector welcoming this favorite son home. No alleyoop consult sake in a year. So we've got to get to the male. But i have one real drive-by thing for you guys. You saw this exchange over the weekend Nikki haley and kamla harris nikki. Haley hoping to run for president com. Layers the vice president inexplicably put out a memorial day. Tweet saying enjoy the long weekend Which you know was a staff failure somewhere along the line. They're not acknowledging. What the weekend was about but Hailey jumped right in and said unfed and something else i forget. What the phrase was Jim my question for you is y'all what what. What is she up to. And where does she fit in all of this kind of definition of the republican party. She seems to be very strategically. Picking shots to To leap in. I think she's one of the most fascinating people on the twenty twenty four scene because she obviously has a foot and trump world but she also tried to kind of step away from the trump world. You saw that vividly In the aftermath of the election she nudged the party to move on and a lot of members of congress then people didn't like it she kinda nudged bash. She wrote back and he told us. Acts congress to once these republicans saw that the party didn't want to move on. They got back to work a party at me. This is a party. That's being driven by the voters we talk about trump's so much yes trump isn't the issue it's the voters who are the issue and they don't want to move on from trump therefore their elected officials are beholden to them And acts real fast. If i could before we go to the mailbag a point of personal privilege As joe biden would say in the senate use this pod plug a real fast my own book of gore two percent in no way. We were supposed to talk about it. Yeah no absolutely so. Alex burns my great colleague and partner in crime and i are working on a book that we hope will be sort of an inside. Look at just what happened in twenty twenty and twenty twenty one If the idea of sort of being a first political history of extraordinary moment in american life the campaign cova the aftermath of the election and We spent a time talking to people. I both parties about This period and It's gonna come out probably spring of next year ford up. You could actually call the book partners crime given everything that happened in two thousand and then go ahead just going to say jonathan give us a bit of a chapter one rough draft preview. Here we are. We're sitting here recording this june first. So let's call this marginally roughly roughly halfway through this twenty twenty one year. Do you see anything that strikes you about the political environment particularly on your travels anything that you think the gives you an indication as to what Is the country moving in a different direction. Are we sort of still where we were around inaugural day. No i think you're seeing. The polarization has not really ebbed of right. I you know. I think if anything. It sorta continued pays. I think part of the determination among some people like the Shelley moore capito joe biden. We spent a lot of time talking about at the start of the show to get something done..

"That by the as this episode goes up. We'll be starting to hear. The results of it is an important one in an in an otherwise fairly safe seat in new mexico but because democrats and progressives worry a lot. They're still some worry. That the margin made yell story that leads to the exact pig exacerbating exactly what you just mentioned around retirements. Walk us through. What's at stake here teller Tell us what's going on in new mexico and then maybe regale us with You know some. You probably had some good chili peppers here so this is set the scene. This is the special election to fill the seat vacated by deb holland who's now interior secretary. It is the metro albuquerque. Sade almost all the district is in the county that includes albuquerque. So pre- pretty pretty urban district biden one by twenty three last year. This is a blew up. Lucy be competitive race but albuquerque's number crimewave. There have been already double the number of murders this year. Compared to this time last year The the paper out there. They'll curry journal. At every day is full the stories about the spike in crime and it is on the minds of voters so the republican candidate is a state senator mark. Moore's has basically run a one note campaign on the crime issue and is using a comment that his democratic opponent melanie stands berry made In support of a little known legislative proposal called the breath act which among other things would. Yes Redirect money from police departments so feeds the whole de-fund police corre mean that that worked for the republican. And she won't say that that she regrets coming out for the bill but she has aired very high level Has aired a report. Add in which features abe retired a local police sergeant talking about her efforts to bring back local dollars for for law enforcement in albuquerque from the state house. So she in the national party. No this is a explosive issue. And she's airing this ad to rebut the charge dot early vote out there very favorable for democrats she clearly is poised to be successful but again the question is is the margin. I tell you what surprised me is given the issue set that the republicans in washington have basically written off the race. I talk there. Were the nominee in albuquerque mark. Moore's and he can fast. You said yeah i. i was The money had come in. He's basically been abandoned by the republicans in dc essentially realized that couldn't win this seat. It's to democratic. But you know didn't give him a dime so i think that's made it less pure test of the crime. Issue the packer. He hasn't gotten national money are you that is why wouldn't they pour money in there just to because they don't wanna look like they're trying to win. Is that the exactly you try to win. And you'll lose by twelve and you know it's it's not great. I guess if he does better without any no money right. We didn't send a nickel here and this radio. Closer than joe biden was younger. Go for the exact reason of defined the police long. They've got a talking point in the narrative. I e from being an albuquerque in talking to democrats on the ground they have sounded the alarm Speaking to a handful of operatives in politicians out there who have contacts back in dc. Amy they made sure that. From nancy pelosi and joe non down we cannot. We've gotta make sure that that gala is well funded and she has gotten a flawed of money from house. Democrats has gotten visits guys from both joe biden. The first lady ended up hof the second job. Have both gone to albuquerque to stand with the nominee Senator warren did a big zoom geo. Tv call Pete aguilar from california house democrat in the congressional hispanic caucus. Was there on the ground. This past saturday with the governor. Michelle luhan grisham. Who by the way had to cede herself before she ran for governor in twenty eighteen search. She knows the territory really well. The point being knowstone being left unturned democrats are not taking this for granted in part because they wanna hang a big victory on the republicans show. You guys tried to come at us on defunding. The police guess what didn't work. That's the hope that's today right. Is that today. it's tonight. Yeah yep so people. By the time robert people listen to this podcast. We may know the result of it. So take a look the margin with at twenty three point biden win yup in mind and you can judge the effect of all of this and the impact is jonathan sat on what those retirements look like. Do people in a slightly newer district. They're going to have to start meeting voters that they haven't had to meet or deal with before. Are they going to have to shoulder a message. That quite frankly is harder at. I think it will be an interesting thing to watch and always interesting. The skirmish of memos afterwards to figure out who 'cause sometimes winning the race is ancillary to who wins the war around the messaging. Bail why they won the race. Yes so it'll be j mart you wrote an another really really interesting story A week ago about the looming gubernatorial primary in And in arkansas. Oh yeah and As a kind of lens into all the fissures in the republican party. I talk a little bit about that. There are some Yeah there's at least one very well known personality involve yes. There is so arkansas as a small state has always punched above its weight in politics business less so in football i would add on business. It certainly has and think about walmarts. And the bill. Clinton's and the west clark's mike huckabee's hillary clinton's the list goes on anyways. It can't become this petri dish though right now for the republican party of sort of what is coming out of the party and what what the kind of new party looks. Like post trump. You've got one hundred and forty proof. trump acolytes. Sarah huckabee the former white house press secretary who is now gone home and has been sort of overwhelmed. The governor's race By dint of her her celebrity personality fundraising bumped bill tenant governor tim griffin who had been eight years as lg plotting race for governor. He is now withdrawn from the race. Ends running for attorney general and it's made life a little bit awkward for the current governor who's also a pretty from a familiar face in yemen at Esa hutchinson who of course is kind of a reagan bush republic in the pre trump figure. Who used to be proceeded fairly right wing type character. He was one of the impeachment managers against bill clinton in the nineties. He is now calling for a kind of restoration of the pre trump party while his likely successor Has now come back to arkansas triumphantly with the trump branding so it's koreans these attentions in a fairly small pond and by the way didn't even mention the state's junior senator. Tom cotton who is running for president likely in twenty twenty four as somebody who is much more trump friendly Than ben isa. But it's not quite the kind of trump devaux t as sarah huckabee someone who's probably more ideologically conservative and certainly more hawkish when it comes to foreign policy that trump anyways it's just a fascinating story about what has happened to to the party in state and a final note. It's a full circle moment. This is a state that historically was a one party state to have a democratic personalities jostling for supremacy prior bomb burst clinton. We're all trying.

"And you get this deep polarity In our politics but well let's not forget to. I mean you know one rube. We progressives have a tendency to to to begin to focus on the downside and not the upside so to to jonathan's point. You know it's to be more. it will be. They're going to rephrase dickens. It'll be the it'll be the worst of times and oh there was some good things too well. And let's be clear the things you know when you talk about the child tax credit which you know wipes out half of childhood poverty in the country When you talk about child care Tax credits if they get those so essential to so many Families you know there are there. Are things in here that are landmark achievements if he can get them if he can get them done. You know jonathan. It's interesting usually acts of the one that makes fun of me for talking about policy. And then he interrupts to talk about china. I'm trying to make you feel comfortable bride. I'm just trying to make you. But i would say the layer of also bad news that that is going to be witnessed here is in these states like texas in these states Like georgia redistricting is coming as well right. The sense is going to be a bit late. But the challenge in opening up a place like texas and making it more progressive is going to be set back considerably because the people that are these laws are also about the redraw districts right and and it's going to certainly the both on the house side but then also on the state legislative side. It's going to be a long time before some of these states are truly an utterly competitive again even as we've marched towards making them more competitive so i think on the progressive side it could be There are going to be a decent number of of disappointments in defeats on that side of the ledger. Listen i think the the you know you look at polling about how younger voters view some of these issues. You look at the demographic trends of the country and long term you know that has to be encouraging to democrats the question. Is this decade this decade. Be you know these maps that are gonna come out are going to put reply i mean. Jr with everything even if biden accomplishes all the things we've talked about wouldn't you say republicans are in a better position to take over the house. Oh the house absolutely. I mean just because of a the small minority so small majority democrats app and because of what robert just mentioned which is a reapportionment is going to give them a slight advantage going into next. Look i think it's going to be difficult for for democrats. They keep the house Just on the kind of physics of the first midterm plus reapportionment alone. And but i'm also watching closely is. How many more retirements we see from house. Democrats who don't want to confront district don't want to confront difficult race and don't want to contemplate life in the minority. All three of which could be very real prospect is seen sherry boost does who was the chair. His congressional campaign committee who comes from a a very competitive district in western illinois announced her retirement. Okay then let's take a break right here and we'll be right back. Gives an axe here and we've got something new to share. That could be the perfect father's day gift and i'm talking about the new hero. Iq buds to max the next generation of technology. That gives you the power to control and alter your soundscape and gibbs. I haven't tried mine out. Mike murphy has however and he swears by these and says they are fantastic. He he may mention that to you. There's really nothing worse than having a bad pair of headphones or your buds. You just if you can't hear it just makes the conversation well rather stilted so Murphy was blown away by the iq.

"They're gonna do What are the impacts of All of these voting bills. And do you think i mean. Obviously the pressure's gonna go back onto the senate right to try and pass a voting pill where there is no chance for or you know partisan negotiation yet. I'm the governor of taxes. Greg abbott widely expected to call a special session so to your point axis. This is not end of the story Probably come back and and push it through guys to observations on this You know one is republican effort to make voting. More difficult in a lot of these states is obviously respond to twenty twenty election da but it their coalition is increasingly. You know Downscale more working class. And i don't know if they Get this or not but they might not have the only keeping democrat voters away from some of their voters away speaking of unintended consequences. Secondly what's going to be fascinating. But the mid terms is how democrats used as an issue to compensate for the voting laws and by me rally people could rally people. Yeah exactly they want to take away your right to vote which is why they've done x. Y. z. So you know. Does this democrats an opportunity to kind of wheel. The issue next year in the midterms Could offset or even more some of these. Some of these These bills but of course larger issue it does show the degree to which the state legislators and governors are responding to trump in the aftermath of the election entirely. This is driven by what the voters want and what the voters are demanding of their legislators and That oath entirely to what happened in november december. January and in some quarters is still happening. Yeah well although we can't agree on what happened is part of the problem. I mean those people who are demanding these four hundred bills of cropped up all over the country like the texas bill Are doing it on the basis of ally basically that this was somehow even the in texas say the election down there ran smoothly so this is about election integrity to solve a problem that doesn't exist but trump supporters fervently. Believe it did it is he was banging on the drama and still is benjamin drama and so it becomes their version of accepted a reality even though obviously the facts are otherwise. The election was not stolen Ed but again. This is much more about a politician preservation. Right a lot of these members of congress in state legislators are looking at primaries versus john and this is the big chains right that these guys are consumer survive in their primary and they fear losing primary by being insufficiently developed trauma trumpism exactly juicy a scenario any scenario where any kind of voting rights. Bill passes the senate. No i don't. I look i think mansion will get troubled by the fact that republicans don't want to have a discussion or debate or negotiation on this. But i think he's so far out there. I think the only the only actual way to change this is through some filibuster reform. And i think he's largely answered that question. He's been fairly unequivocal on this. And i don't think he's. I don't see that he's going to change on this and I don't think there's much i do think t- to to jonathan's point i think for for democrats this we've gotta make Chicken salad at a. You know what and i think it is years. Podcast menu can say it. All i can. I'm sorry you can't say that on tv. But she against off but you know is to use this to rally the base to get people excited to say. Hey you know what you know why. They're new why they're meeting it at at three in the morning to try to take something away you because it's something that's really valuable and they don't want you to be able to see it and generate some excitement because in reality look you know. Let's get back to the hack spot on this. Like democrats tend to go into these elections thinking. Well i've got a better policy proposal on these seven things and we wonder why like republicans in you know in in in years like two thousand and two and others can get people really excited about federal judges right because it's a it's an issue that speaks to the politics of not the policy of right and i think this is one of those years in which democrats are just going to have to get inculcated in this idea of you. Know what the let's rally the base on voting rights rally the base on. There's no better way to show these guys what they're taking away then to show up in mass in and proved them wrong. Kisha lance bottoms was on here Was on my X-files podcast Some weeks ago and when the georgia law is being debated and she sort of said said that she said look. Don't don't assume we're not watching. Don't assume that people don't get what's going on and they're going to be more determined to come out and vote next but it does remind me of what lady clement clementine told winston churchill when he lost the election when she said it's a blessing in disguise and he said well. It's rather well disguised. So i think a lot of democrats would say this if this is a blessing. It's it's it's pretty well disguised. I mean it does trample on kind of fundamental tenet of democracy which is hard to hard to ignore. You know we shouldn't be setting up laws that are intended to make it more difficult for people vote in response to a fictitious charge of fraud. That never happened. But you know i know. That's not a hacky thing to say. But i had say the duality to use the word. That's not very happy that duality of twenty twenty one. And by the way i think browns and actually wrote this so credit to ron who always writes a smart ideas But this occurred to me. I promise before he wrote it I sit right it. This could be a really best at times worse times for progressives this calendar. Here's watts on one hand. They are going to stack up a pile of accomplishments on social welfare. If you add. The stimulus. Bill to troy dr stimulus bail and whatever they pass on infrastructure and potentially a another bill That they would do up yet. Thank you by proposing or some semblance of what he's us you stack them. Those are transcending accomplishments with regard to the role of government in people's lives at the same time. It's totally plausible. They could be shot out on a number of other issues. That are significant. Yeah that are that are more about either. The process of democracy itself or individual polarizing issues. An guns john's immigration comes to mind Police were formed comes to mind totally possible that they could fail on those issues not to democratic reforms. Small democratic reforms. But get this like norma stack of stuffed on when it comes to people's lives and You know what would that mean if they act for the party. I think fascinating question. It is look. I i think ultimately by will be judged on things One is What he what he did to end the virus and the other. And i think turning that that's going pretty well and the related issue of the economy and sort of economic progress brings an economic reforms that he brings and You know i. The end of the data of the key is going to be judged on style points. But there is gonna be this lingering These these this lingering dissatisfaction. Look we're having like a mass shooting almost every day. Now i mean it's it's it's getting so numbing that it's it's it's really you know it's disturbing how familiar it's become yet. Nobody seems to feel like we're gonna move forward on any sort of Gun initiative You know immigration obviously continues to be a big problem and We're you know we don't know that would make any pro. Yeah those things are going to linger but the democracy question is i think the one that that's going to haunt a lot of people At like i think he'll chalk up the political winds he needs Long term for the country You know the democracy questions are gonna be really really pregnant as republicans get more and more bold and you know the thing that were Were as is that every action creates a reaction..

"They're still significant differences. On how to pay for this this bill and i think until unless those are resolved. It's gonna be difficult for them to find common ground. Yeah i agree with all that and by the way the fight is over that republicans want user fees which are really really unpopular. I don't know why they would Why they would attach themselves to those. I guess because they don't want to raise corporate taxes but But there's another thing you know Bob casey was on the tube over the weekend and he said serve the quiet part out loud. Which is we've got to do this So that joe mansion and the other moderates see that we we tried and i spoke responding administration. Who said you know. We can't just get caught trying. We actually have to try In in if we're going to get a mansion and cinema for example to go along if they have to go a one-party route on this through budget reconciliation. Yeah i certainly grew jonathan. I think that The joe biden. He talked a lot about how things would be different if he were president. And i think he's got a decent amount on the line just to say in. Show that What he was saying for all those months has some truth to it. And i think jonathan's point as well you know if republicans are going to sign up for a biden initiative. It might be building roads and bridges. It be might not be a whole lot beyond that but it might be that. But i think the last part that you mentioned ax is truly important. Which is joe. Manchin is is in a state in which joe biden got a Perilously low number of votes and he can't just turn around every three or six months and sign up for reconciliation. That stuff's a few trillion dollars worth of stuff through the senate on a fifty fifty. Vote so You know. I think mansion has some I think he genuinely believes in. The institution wants to see that it can work. And i think democrats have to show him either a it can or be it never will be able to and the only way to make progress is to go this alone. So it's it's imperative that they do this. It isn't just a a show. Yeah this and that's kind of the subtext of this whole thing where The between those who believe that you can still do things Through regular order and in the old way and the other the other theory that that that those days are gone and It's just a a partisan power politics here. Here's what gillibrand had to say. Well we've seen this time and time again Minority leader mitch. Mcconnell has already said his goal is to defeat the agenda of this administration. We just had a vote on january six riots and only had six strong souls to vote with us. That's a problem. And i don't think there's necessarily goodwill behind all negotiations and i think the american people elected us to solve the problem of cova to rebuild the economy rebuild the infrastructure and. I think it's our moment to act so j mart. Yeah that is the debate right. Yeah and you hear that from the left in the democratic caucus especially of like look. They don't wanna do serious deal what they are willing to do as a shadow but we actually want to do. Let's get on with it but acts united mentioned this immigrants. That the bob casey quote. It's not that simple. Because even if they scotch the bipartisan negotiations and say okay we're going to do with fifty and we're on jam jam through on a party line. Vote will then. You've got to reopen negotiations except for this time. it's now a with democrats. That was shelley moore. Capito with joe manchin. Cureton cinema maggie hassen. Chris coons The list goes on a lot of sort of moderate democrats. And you know what will they agree to with fifty votes. How much can you include. How much will it cost. How do you pay for it. That is not a one week extras right. I mean take a while. Which is why they. I think are serious about negotiations and serious about the deadline. There's a house markup. I think next week and how they orient that is going to be affected by by these negotiations. What about mcconnell you guys. Yeah because it seems to me mitch. Mcconnell's about power and mitch mcconnell's about Trying to regain the senate majority is playbook from the obama. Years is pretty clear. Which is if you run on a platform that says i can work on a bipartisan basis. I can build bridges you know and so on and this is interesting building. Bridges and infrastructure discussion but for mcconnell. Those bridges are not helpful for mikhail blowing up. Those bridges is important because if his members cooperating with the administration has he said in a famous interview with the new york times. Carl two thousand and ten am he. He said then everybody will think they've figured it out. And so can mcconnell allow these negotiations to go on and prove successful or will he do everything he can as he did on the commission. Vote to blow the thing. Well i think you're right and your assessment that he will make a political judgment and so the question is is a politically better for the republican party to show that they're not merely obstructionist actually can negotiate in good faith and get something done or is it better for them politically just to oppose everything. Run on the real and perceived excesses of the current democrats and power at have appear under still message on. I think he's trying to figure that. Out and i think that's why he has been willing collect capital go as far as he has because i think there is some element of this wouldn't look bad for the voters if they show was willing to actually get some stuff done here. It was striking to me in. Jila brand mention this her remarks when he said back in kentucky that he's one hundred percent focused on stopping this administration. You know this is a great example of how trump gets in the heads of all republicans that he said that because he was trying to avoid commenting on trump right and in his effort to avoid any mention of trump whatsoever. He went further than he wanted to go about the current administration because he was so determined to avoid taking the bait on trump that he went to the next day in day after he recalibrated his comment and said we're trying to push the administration to the middle politically. Not trying to stop them entirely. Well obviously democrats have have not Have not given up talking about his statement..

"jonathan martin" Discussed on Hacks on Tap with David Axelrod and Mike Murphy

"Attacks on tap with david axelrod robert gibbs and mike murphy i i i think we are getting pretty close to a fisher cut bait moment but i'll tell you that On on the fishing side of things the negotiations have been healthy. There's a lot of conversations going on Among members of congress who who've come forward with a lot of different ideas in addition to the Discussions that we've had with The group led by senator capito. So we believe in this process but also very much agree that this can't go on forever so there you have it gives we've talked for Remember though all those times in the trump years when they talked about infrastructure week. Is this this. This is in first. This actually is infrastructure week. And i forgot to get you something going. All i wanted was a bridge. they and their you know but it pretty clear that this is the week when biden is gonna decide Whether there's a deal to be had with republicans not in that has political implications and who better to sort through those then the then than yoda himself. Jonathan martin of the new york times they're great Political writer has joined us and Jay mark good to see acts gibbs. Thank you good to see you. He's really hack at heart. Which is why his reporting is so rich he loves he loves politics and he gets it at a very high level my diets rich to some say to rich. Some things don't need to be said two things to look for in jonathan martin story. Any food references. What he's going to either later that night or have already assumed and the uniqueness and i appreciate this greatly john Of the the bylines there are too many people that try to write about wisconsin from wisconsin avenue. And right i love you and the new york times Has you out all over the country. finding out what's going on in the places where it's going on and actually i will say this. I loved d- pete pete buttigieg sort of set that up very in a very pete. Buddha judge way by saying how much we believe in the process and then taking half of breath and saying but this can't go on forever. Yeah so interesting to sort of collide those phrases together but that's the tightrope that they're walking isn't it because there are a lot of democrats we got a little sound from kirsten gillibrand who is on the same show with Buddha judge later in that show who you know there are a lot of democrats who say hey stop. Negotiating with republicans who never gonna come and And so this is like a very big week jamar. What are the what. go through the yalta this For because we'll out let me hear your wisdom. And then i'll throw my theory. And i really think that joe biden wants to prove that he can get a bipartisan deal period. I think the best chance. He has to get a bipartisan agreement. On something. that's fairly big ticket is infrastructure The heat really want to do not just because he wants sort of feather in his cap although he does. I think that has something to do. With his rivalry with the last two presidents which we can discuss later by also think he wants to. Do it acts because i think he wants to show that american government can work. He wants to prove to the voters the world even the yes. We a release were polarized moment politically. But my gosh we can come together and still get things done across the aisle batch why this matters to him. I don't think that he's gonna drag this on throughout the summer If it looks like they can't reach a deal. But i think he definitely wants to try to get one and by the way. That isn't just me. You talk to the senate republicans who were negotiating with him. They will tell you the same thing that that they really think. Even private the biden wants to get a deal now. The problem is.

"Frank Viola kind of world re redoing some of that and and he said to me. I think what we did wrong out here in. This community experiment was that we all kept going to church and our and our churches and we will never were forced to find something new relationship with one another and and. I don't say that to be any kind of slight on the church communities that they were a part of but it was his kind of looking back at the end. I don't think we dug as deep as we could have because we didn't have to. And that's just what's going through my head right now like we've been forced here today deep and to figure some things out and and maybe like maybe maybe this is the cut of the lion when we haven't been able to cut ourselves as a church community deep enough. You know we know that we're the priesthood of believers. We know that we don't need to be posture. Centric with that. We have all this stuff. But I'm I'm watching you know stuff. I've preached on and stuff. We wish that our community embodied. But that just didn't have too yup suddenly have to. Yeah that so important. And as much as I don't want to gloss over of course. The amount of real suffering pain trauma people experiencing Who are infected of nineteen or economic devastation? Off I'm not transmitted Smiley face on something but I tell you what makes me think of even that language of how it's forcing because it is? It's forcing us. I do feel again a weird way because I'm seeing this a lot of directions. There is something kind of liberating about it. I mean I. I haven't thought this booker. This story many years but I think it was in Kathleen. Norris's book the Cloister Wall where she talks about how these monks that she knew taking them to Walmart when they never went to Walmart and them having experienced of coming to the cereal out at Walmart for seven years. And it just being awful like this is paralyzing. Because it's like now. Oh way there's like two hundred different kinds of cereal and I have to pick which like the accident being like being like this kind of overwhelming thing. And that's kind of like the way we've been living like the constant just the constant sort of ability to sort of choose. Our own reality is is draining. And it's complex and psychologically. I think like an often choose things that of course that are not good for us in Addicted to all kinds of things so I think there is kind of a weird grace and sort of being forced right now. They're not infinite options and people are being forced to have certain kind of face to face conversations. They wouldn't have had any more. People are forced into a conduct Stolid you'd in some cases physically that does it come Easily or natively. Almost any of us and yet we're KINDA WE ARE BEING FORCED. Defense him the treasures in that so. I don't know I think there is kind of a weird gray sometimes into being backed into a corner and not really happening options. I think there is a weird grace's worker them. Yeah Yeah and and and as you said let lowered let the grace not run out like let it be in our finances and let it be in our families. This morning I was just like God. I'm I'm running on empty. Yup I've done all my practices of done everything I know how to do to to be on top and I'm on the bottom today. I'm just like God. We need the grace in every sphere. Right that's right. Yeah no I feel that and I think being able to knowledge that when when the days are wins. Not Working in your exhausted. I think that's important to be able to say and I've had a number of days like that too but it just I think given that Kinda getting to the end of our own resources in that way gives us the opportunity. Discover things about God and ourselves and maybe even the people around this we wouldn't otherwise discover is what race scan come when we're at the end of resources so again not like to make that just cheerier something because it is it is hard and I think sometimes like Oh gracious like I just think as much as anybody else right now. I'm thinking it even short term. Man where am I going to? How is this going to working with a month from now two months from now? Can we sustain this like all? Those kind of questions are are pressing. But it's like there's a something about that fundamental simplicity where you realize okay. I may lose this this this but you know maybe I don't need. Maybe I don't need as much as I thought I needed. In order to still function you know and this crisis right now. Such a great equalizer. I've been I keep thinking about there've been a number of conversations like this but for me that my favorite judge position was this. I've gone to our local seven. Eleven and guy their gestation and Gathered in his mid twenty says. Visit the table couple of times. He said like man John. I'm just so grateful right now that I have job security like I know that I'm GonNa be alright during this and having the opportunity within a couple of days of that of talking with a couple folks on its head pretty significant wealth and influence who are pretty sure within the next few days or weeks. They're going to completely lose absolutely everything like lose lizard Like done like out and is like man. My friend like several like man. I'm so grateful right now that I've got a stable job but I'm going to be able to make it through. This year's vokes who've had like who who've had kind of a lot we're looking at basically like real destiny destitution depending on what kind of work. What kind of industry you're in that kind of thing. So that's an equalizer. In that way so weird I mean but that's death yes the great equalizer that's right that brings us all. Oh that's right now money if you have power this whatever like there's really no way to kind of just soar above something like this and I think that's the part for me at one to be gluttonous about not gluttonous anybody else pain but has been very refreshing to to me is that I do like Syncing and feeling a lot of vulnerability for people who otherwise don't aren't in a position to ever have to be vulnerable and of course a big. There's good beautiful things that come out of that. Oh for sure for sure. Absolutely I mean it's been so bizarre my wife and I have you know Kinda trying to regroup every day and look at this crisis and how we're doing with the kids and the family and her work load like we've been in a financial disastrous possession for like a year so on the surface financial woes of this are not new for us so that's felt like oh well cool but that's been a that's been that invitation and that that vulnerability that we've had to develop over the last year of just trusting. God your enemy my play I guess for all of my friends is a God. Let this paints he's coming to rescue us But let it be profitable if it can ya? I guess like at least let it not be for nothing you know at least accomplish its goodness. That's such a wonderful lanes. The pray like yes. Got It all possible. We want relief and healing for our friends. Won't be able to be well but if not then let's not waste not waste this moment. Let's see what what God does half worse in the midst of these things. I do believe as a person who think that God causes things like this. I do think that it's kind of God's most basic job description to bring beauty out of broken. That's what God's doing so there must be something in the midst of all this pain redemptive. It's happening if we're if we're open to that. Jonathan would you pray for us that we would have is to find that? Yeah what God is doing redemptive Louis. All around us. I would love that as we. Just welcome your presence. I'm just aware even in this moment. How this conversation with John Opens my us and puts me in a posture. See here better than I was able to see her in a couple of hours ago. So I'm grateful for that We know that you are always it? Works and we know that in the midst of trauma and pain and suffering of all kinds that there is always something while and beautiful and knew that your spirit is doing in the world and doing our lives so got Dupree for anybody. Who's listening right now? Just that you would open our eyes to be able to see those things but you really only can see by your spirit. I think so many of us now understandable in a place where we almost want him begging interchange circumstances and yet it just seems so much more like you. Spirit that Instead of a meal and changing our circumstances you want to radically alter our perspectives on the world that we're living now to be able to come to see the people around us and the suffering around us the world around us in a different way the way that you see it the way you see us. Pray for the grace right now of just that you would just healer is in that way to be able to what is doing to be able to discern something of the good purposes you have in the midst of these things that none of this is about but none of this is about Teaching anybody any kind of lessons but yet there really is a way. God that you want to make yourself known and that may eight something of this pattern of death and resurrection That we can know that that the truth of this and the truth of the life that you have for us in the other side in a deeper way that we could have before so just give us the grace and give us the patients to kind of see this process through even though we're tempted defense for even that we want to rush at even that we wanna find maybe even find meaning do quickly spread you. Give us the grace to sit in office a little while longer. Until you're able to reveal yourself reveal your heart to us in the ways that we need to see is s this thing the father the son than men and that was the one and only Jonathan Martin.

Biden rallies establishment in bid to turn back Sanders

"Biden Wins. Every county in South Carolina from the hills to the C. Colossal victory in the first representative state. Is this the second day of the rest of his political life? Well it certainly feels that way. I mean look at the last forty eight hours. You have money which he hasn't had you've had endorsements you have people on the hill rallying around him. There's a Russian expression I think Peter might know it Success has its own aroma. That when you start winning that something happens that there's sort of an aura. People wanted to see him win. It's not just that he won one really big. And the the proportion of the African American vote the way he dominated constituency which is so important in a Democratic primary centene incredibly powerful message to people who had been wavering about him Peter Baker I recall a donald trump using biden's name a time or two in the past. Have you any evidence about how the president is processing the Biden Victory in South Carolina? I'm really what it may mean for the rest of the race. Look I think we know that the president would rather see Bernie Sanders. He's Kinda Telegraph that as his opponent. Candidates are notoriously bad picking their opposition. They they may not always have the right decision on that. But I see the contrast between the socialist and his version of capitalism as advantageous choice for the fall so tonight at the Rally. You heard him go. After Biden. Newly Resurgent Biden. Pretty harsh terms. He mocked him as feeble minded. Kind of has been ridiculed the vice president for his verbal gaffes lately confusing names saying that could be tomorrow's Super Thursday instead of Tuesday that kind of thing and he seemed to relish it but at the same night is trying to stir the pot. He's trying to get the sanders supporters. Upset whatever happens if he would lose if he were to lose. The president is saying is because it was a coup. That was the phrase there. Were he used today? I think on twitter because he wants to say they're the establishment is stealing it from Bernie Sanders in his view. He wins either way. He gets a candidate he wants and Bernie Sanders and a stark choice. Or you know. He gets a moderate Democrat to face but makes the laughter try get the left anyway. Upset BECAUSE BERNIE. Sanders did get what he says is fair do congresswoman. It's hard to imagine and fast forward through the history of the Democratic Party to a time where there has been one colossal consensus figure in the Democratic Party coming off his historic two-term presidency. He and the former first lady are often at the very top of opinion polls for most admired man. Most admired woman talk about the Barack Obama effect potentially on this election. Well I think it's a significant effect and I don't think it just rest with president former President Obama. I think you know when you look at people who were central to the Obama Administration now coming out in support of Joe Biden. That is in some ways telegraphing where the OBAMAS are and so. This shouldn't be a surprise me. We in some ways it would be kind of odd. Obviously if Vice President Biden didn't get the support of these allies of President Obama. We'd be all over that that. I do know Susan. Rice endorsed today among others. Well she did and I think that you know when you look at the range of endorsers especially today from Susan Rice and shoring up the foreign policy backing Joe Biden on domestically to have better work. Stand there along with Buddha judge or with char that makes a huge difference. Those are big signals sometimes. Endorsements don't matter at all in a campaign and we overestimate that but these were big Carolina. I'd like to read from you. The work of Jonathan Martin and Alex Burns over at your outfit very simply. The headline tells the story frozen in anxiety. How Democratic leaders leaders struggled to confront Bernie Sanders What is the story mean for the future potentially of the Democratic Party? Well it means a couple of things one if you look at that story part of the reason that they had a difficult time building consensus at that point around. Biden is because the campaign was really bad. The candidate was not reaching out to people as obvious as Harry Reid. The money was not coming in. Joe Biden was running in a very old fashioned way. He didn't have the base of say small donors and I think that story gets that and I think everyone should read. It is really the tension that might erupt if the Democrats are successful in kind of building up Biden as the Anti Bernie and prevailing like do they risk alienating. Some of the young people especially young men have gotten excited about Bernie Sanders to your first point. Sometimes people just like to be asked Harry. Reid came out in the last twenty four hours and endorsed but as they say that would have been nice lovely before the primary in his State. But actually you're raising a good point because today. I don't know if you've heard Biden's remarks he asked for people's help. He asked for their support. So somebody is sort of getting that message to him and Dunn Edwards a blatantly political question. What do you do about the split in the party? What do you do if you arrive at your convention? You'll be there and Bernie Sanders has slightly more of the delegates and that there's a group that wants to nominate Joe by first of all. I hope that we actually don't get to that point because I think it is really difficult. One and I would urge Democrats to stop running the Anti Bernie Campaign. They can run a campaign that elevates Joe Biden support coalescence around Joe Biden without sort of putting a knife in the Bernie Sanders supporters. I think that would be wrong for our party. And it certainly will not help us coming out of the Convention to have fully United Party. I mean Bernie has said that he's committed to that and I actually believe him on that point and I don't think he's GonNa be used as a pawn by Donald Trump. Should he not get the nomination but exit and that kind of exit is really important and so we have to figure that out? And I don't know yet whether burning might have enough to go into the convention and consolidate support and get the nomination. That could still happen. I do think for all you viewers watched Texas if Joe Biden does really well there I think in in Bernie a does well on Super Tuesday but Joe Biden has enough reason in enough momentum to to really challenge him in a number of places. I think there's a really good shot that we go and I'm not just saying this because I've dreamed about it as a reporter forever but that we go to a convention and have a contested convention you guys are on different teams just simply just because the anxiety for anti I get it. Zantac sales will spike Peter. I've got a tweet from Aaron. Blake over at the Washington Post again to keep things fair. Republican members of Congress haven't sent one tweet or press release mentioning Burris Ma or Hunter Biden since February seventh per alleged storm. One day after Biden Win South Carolina. Senator Johnson of Wisconsin sends this letter on a Sunday. No less Sometimes Peter the Republicans are Director. Never Ironic fifth well. Look you know. Burris wasn't necessary in the Republican. Playbook when Biden was down and out he was a fourth-place fifth-place finisher and the early primary states and they had bigger fish to fry at that point. It was Michael Bloomberg on the rise Bernie Sanders on the rise. They were focused on them. Now Biden of course is resurgent. You're going to hear a lot. More about Burris men Hunter Biden. And that's something that Democrats have to take into consideration is they picked their nominee because it is a subject. They're going to have to address the fall. If Joe Biden is their nominee either got to figure out how they're going to answer it how they're going to defend against going explain it. Some of these things can be dismissed as well. President trump was exaggerating. But there are some things that are genuinely troubling to a lot of voters even Democrats who have been disturbed by by some of what they've seen so this is a big factor in a way the Republicans are trying to stir the pot here before Super Tuesday. But it's a reminder that we're playing we're not playing ball and this is going to be a big contest come the fall. Whoever's the nominee Peter you're around to cover the Obama White House year among the former presidents biographers when people ask you what you saw of the relationship between President and Vice President? How easy was the relationship that kind of thing? How do you answer? That's a good question. I didn't start off that easy. In fact these are two very different kinds of personalities. They came from different generations. Different backgrounds different experience levels different introvert extrovert kind of ways of dealing with people but over the years they were together they really did bond in a pretty significant way. I think certainly you saw that by the time. Beau Biden died and Barack Obama gave the eulogy at the funeral. That was about as close a bonding moment as you can imagine between two political figures that doesn't necessarily mean he. He thought that Barack Oh so he thought that Joe Biden necessarily the best candidate to run this year. I think the Rock Obama had his concerns but now that we're facing a choice between Bernie Sanders and one other candidate. You can sorta see as as you put it as Kelly and her colleagues wrote the subtle hand of of Obama coming into play here which clearing the field to some extent of the the other Moderate alternatives that is a biden versus sanders. Kind of contest. Everybody Strap in Super Tuesday star. Hours are great thanks to Peter Baker to Caroline Ryan to Donna Edwards for starting off on manic

Trump can’t win in 2020. But Democrats can lose.

The 11th Hour with Brian Williams

07:16 min | 2 years ago

Trump can’t win in 2020. But Democrats can lose.

"Our next guest says Donald Trump can't win reelection but the Democrats kratz shirt can lose it so over the weekend some of the President's Republican allies in Congress. There are many wasted no time defending him as pressure builds now over over this impeachment inquiry. I think this whole thing is a sham. I can't believe we're talking about impeaching the president based on an accusation based on hearsay. Look Look Democrats wanted to impeach because Rudy Giuliani talked to a couple of Ukrainians and good luck with that. What do you make of this exchange. Presidents Alinsky says we are almost ready to buy Roy Moore from the United States for defense purposes and president trump replies. I would like you to do us a favor though you just added another word no favor though yesterday in the transcript so that's kind of how that went and with us us for more tonight is Rick Wilson Longtime Florida Man Longtime Republican strategist who is soon following up on his first book. Everything trump touches dies with a new Work Ryan against the devil which is due out in early twenty twenty. It is a thrill to have you as always thank you sir so tonight. I am reminded Sean Spicer danced to Saturday night fever on dancing with the stars and Sebastian Gorka is on board a US government plane with our secretary three of state going to Europe. We saw that selection of trump allies. There's a whole population the people in Washington who think this might be ballgame here. There are a lot of very nervous folks right now and they're thinking that they've tried to hide in the tall grass for a long time they play the Magi game when they have to and they quietly whispered reporters. I'm really concerned. My Brow is furrowed. I'm deeply deeply troubled and they understand that there's a point where you can't can't just keep pretending and we're rapidly reaching the point where you can't just keep pretending and you know what was bill bar doing in Italy. Why are they making. These phone calls to Australia. We want more the details about Ukraine Gorkhas probably in Europe pitching fish oil tablets or whatever it is he does for a living now but these guys are all of the peace there this flotsam watson around trump so many involved in this and I hope they're all tonight pondering second mortgages so they can lawyer up. Can you imagine what it feels like for the Aussies as a lover and appreciator of history there we were side by side on the beaches of Normandy what we want from them now a little information so help us help us blackmail a competitor in a political election the US they're trying to extort foreign powers by using the Awesome Awesome Majesty of the President's Office and the powers of the United States government trying to extreme. It's just it's the lowest level thug behavior. I have a dramatic reading from the twitter account of Jonathan Martin with New York Times. It's about politics and you're political party. The squeeze is on Republicans left in high income congressional districts and states here is college plus Weitz. I just love how demographers instantly reduce entire groups of Americans against forty six percent already for impeach and remove fifty two percent for the inquiry fifty-seven percent believe trump thinks he's above the law just one percent percent fewer believe he abuses the power of his office fifty one percent believe he's committed crimes as president so you start thinking wow the Republicans should be very nervous us then. I look at Rick Wilson. Down and trump can't win reelection but the Democrats can certainly lose it. It's an old problem explain. The Democrats crafts have a great gift for snatching defeat from the jaws of victory unless they have generational candidates who are who are who have phenomenal skills they had to in our lifetime they had Barack Obama and they had Bill Clinton who are both naturally gifted political figures. They understand how to connect with people. They have charisma for days. None none of the current field reaches that level of performance and I think the danger that I've seen coming at the at the Democratic Party for a long time. Now is a lot of them. I'm still believe that this is going to be a referendum about policy. Selections a referendum as all presidents relations are about trump. They are all referendum. All the referendum referendum thought in this election is going to be trump or not trump ex future or wife future. If you want is trump's kicking you in the face until all eternity well well then re elect Donald Trump. If you want to argue about policy your re-electing Donald Trump it's you've got trump hands them right now the opportunity to go after him as a man who is corrupt corrupt who was ineffective and who was who has led this country into a place where the reputation of our president as as as an extortionist and a mercenary when our president tosses tosses out a reference to a civil war right. I think that that is again. This is a way to make a referendum on this man what kind the president in this country other than the unless he's Got Jefferson Davis fantasies wants to go out and have their reputation. Be You know re tweeting and praising somebody nobody who who's threatening a civil war if he doesn't get to operate above the law if he doesn't get to be unaccountable in every way and that this is the kind of thing that trumpism has normalized in our country and it's a great danger. Brian Jeff Flake Consensus Hall of fame furrowed Brow Hall of fame member Concern Concern Face Hall of fame member says to his fellow Republicans is there still time to save your souls others remember flake like as the guy who saved cavanaugh right before skipping town not the best guy to make that argument look I would prefer and there it will be a tremendous first-mover advantage for some seated member of the US Senate right now to make that point and to recognize that Donald Trump will drag every single one of them under and they will drown and die politically if they don't start breaking away. This is the problem that nine hundred seventy three and seventy four caught us in nineteen seventy-three. The Republicans were lockstep on Nixon. If you go back it was all it's a media conspiracy against the president. It's liberal elites against the president well in one thousand nine hundred eighty four the voters of the United States decided that fifty four forty nine Republicans needed to go home forever and that eight members of the Republican Senate needed to go the home forever. This is a political consequence of a corrupt president who abuses power right now donald trump and the thing about Nixon Nixon was not about money. Nixon was not about Personal Game Nixon was in the game because that was his character trump is venal trump wants political power so he can continue can you to enrich himself and his family and this is a category above even Richard Nixon and that takes a lot of doing Rick Wilson a thank you so much this survey serves a pleasure to have you on our

Like, you smart water has added electrolytes for taste and great tasting water helps you stay hydrated, feeling refreshed and ready to take on your day. Refresh yourself with smart water. Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, rain stuff, Lauren Vogel. Bam here. It's amazing. What you can find. If you shine a flashlight into your backyard trees, a biologist in Wisconsin have made a rather startling discovery that way in part startling because it apparently hadn't been recorded until now three different species of flying. Squirrels specifically southern northern and Humboldt flying squirrel, which are found across North America and into Central America sport light Brown for that when spotlighted with ultra-violet illumination lights up a hot bubblegum pink the phenomenon occurs on both the top and bottom services of the flying. Squirrels though, it's the underside of a flying. Squirrels carriage, including the flaps of skin that spread out when the squirrel glides from tree to tree really glows Jonathan Martin a biologist at Northland college in Ashland. Wisconsin made the discovery in the forest one evening just by shining a UV flashlight into the tree canopy he was looking for lichens, which are certain type. Of frogs and flora that light up in UV light. That's when he heard the church of a southern flying, squirrel as the squirrel glided by he shined the flashlight on it. And he saw a flash of fuchsia. Martin and his colleagues soon found themselves examining the skins of flying. Squirrels at the science museum of Minnesota. And the field museum in Chicago. They took photos of the skins under visible, light and ultra violet light all but one specimen of the gliders glowed pink that has been variously compared to bubble gum dayglo and lycra from the nineteen eighty s there is also the study republished in the January twenty third twenty nineteen issue of the journal of Malecki, the pink is caused the researchers say by the furs fluorescence, which is what happens when light is absorbed in one wavelength and emitted in another you may remember an episode. We did about how scorpions fluorescent bright green and ultraviolet light some birds also have this trait some fish too few mammals do though flying. Squirrels are nocturnal and are most active at dusk and dawn, no other squirrels in North America are known to possess this ability to floor s including tree squirrels like the eastern gray though, there are over. Two hundred and fifty squirrel species around the world and to be fair. The researchers have not yet tested other species for the next question is what purpose could this fluorescent serve. Humans can't see ultraviolet wavelengths except under special lighting, but other animals can one theory suggests the pink is used to confuse als, which as it turns out also have undersides that Flores a similar pink ELS prey on flying. Squirrels among other mammals, perhaps the squirrels evolved to mimic als. So as not to be eaten by them another theory, which is already being challenged is that the pink attracts potential mates a flying. Squirrels have mating seasons. But their flamboyant fluorescence is available for viewing year round. Anyway, it's not even clear that squirrels can see in UV wavelengths. Ultimately, the researchers point out that age old impetus of science, this is proof of how much we don't know and still need to learn the study concluded the ecological significance of this. Trait warrants further investigation. Today's episode was written by Jimmy Allen and produced by Tyler clang for I heart media, and how stuff works for more on this and lots of other topics.

Indeed defense SO worst. Casey twenty six Rams nineteenth. New England sixteenth. The saints at eleventh. What eleven what the fuck? That's impressive improvement, which is why they are the second best team waited and better than the Rams. If you look at the way numbers thought that was interesting interesting the home team being on the turf, you know, sometimes those dome defenses. They just get that quick get off. Speaking of that was with Sheldon rankings crack true. Of course. I mean, he was on the team until he blew out. His achilles. Sean hate to see that hate to see that Los Angeles.
