"Is that you actually do have a slice of Americans that follow it that believe it that are being fed these conspiracy theories every day on. Youtube or facebook or other social media platforms I've been surprised at how much for instance, the Cunanan stuff has penetrated into people's Ma and you wonder where the getting this and whether they're getting mostly is from facebook and perhaps youtube. It's that saturated for a lot of folks and once you start going down the rabbit hole and it just gets worse. And worse that rabbit hole as a mother is so terrifying go absolutely. Yeah. For All of these reasons, I actually believe we need to make a stronger commitment in our country to civic education understanding history understanding as I said, the diverse contributions of different people and communities in the country so that our young people and then as they grow into adults are. Related against falling for some of this stuff. Exactly. That's exactly right but they prey on the young people that they know will fall for this right at the same thing as any Colt, they give them a group of like minded people and they make whatever that like mindedness is accessible and okay acceptable. But I WANNA go back. Can you first of all just explain to my listeners the role of mayors in America? Well, I mean mayors are those that are. Charged with making sure that cities operate the way they should a lot of it is basic stuff from st maintenance to garbage pickup to fire and police protection. But also mayors play this greater role of being in a symbolic way that community mother or father figure of trying to look out for the entire community and everything from economic development and selling community for investment to those times of tragedy whether it's a natural disaster like a flood or earthquake or tornado or. Something else being the one that is working hard on behalf of the community to repair it to lead that effort. So to me, it was the honor of my lifetime to be near. San Antonio because I was born in the city, I grew up in the city I came back after law school to the city and I had a chip on my shoulder about San Antonio I didn't see when my brother and I went off to college and Law School that. Many people from my community that had made it to those places we went to Stanford for college and then Harvard for Law School, and there weren't that many folks who had grown up like we did in public schools in the city who had those kinds of opportunities and I went to come back so that the city could become the kind of place where more people would have those opportunities and that's what was great about for me the opportunity you'd be mayor. For, those that may not know we have an election coming up we hear a lot about down ballot races. I just want you for a minute to talk about how very very important local elected officials are to a community. Local elected officials are so important these days. We need to be encouraging local candidates. I couldn't agree more. I mean that a Newt Gingrich's strategy on the conservative side or the coke brothers strategy, and they said, we need to be running people in school boards and state legislators and abortive supervisors, and it's not just about focusing on Congress and it's not just about focusing on the Senate or the presidency, and unfortunately they built a very successful network of conservatives elected very different levels and we need to replicate that on the progressive side. A lot of the issues that we actually think about national issues are swayed at the local level. A good example of that is re imagining public safety or reforming releasing Elise Union contracts. They get negotiated at the local level by the mayor and the City Council Police Department budgets are set by the city council policies with regard to discipline accountability transparency. Those are mostly set by the city council of the city and to some extent by state legislatures. Has. Local the other reason is local communities are still by and large this place where people of different ideologies different parties are willing to roll up their sleeves and get things done. It's not logjammed Washington DC it's not as highly partisan is as Washington DC, and that means that you can accomplish some good things when I was mayor of San Antonio for instance, the thing that I'm most proud of is that we got the voters to approve a one eighth cent sales tax increase for something called pre K. for essay. was expanding high-quality full day pre K. to four year olds in our city over eight years real tangible concrete results for people and their children. Those are the kinds of things that can happen when we get things done at the local level and that's why it's important to elect great folks at the local level. Don't skip it on a ballot 'cause I know November's coming up and a lot of people they walk into that voting booth and they're like, yeah, you know I got Joe Biden I got whoever the Senate. Go all the way to the end but that's why I'm kind of excited. There's so many people that will be voting from home and by mail because I I'm hoping that there will be more conversations around the kitchen table that there will be more research that goes into their ballot listen I'm dyslexic. I. Go into a polling booth in. Almost like a panic attack, and so I totally get this idea of like. Over president. But maybe just maybe just like when you see in Colorado and Washington and Oregon these states that offer Mellon in voting as being the norm and voting rates go up maybe this'll be something that we can look back on and say, well, you know what we got out of that. We got that everyone now is offering mellon voting with no excuse needed to get their absentee ballot. So I'm hopeful that that change will help and also like I think it's important that our kids see as vote. Yeah I mean. Hopefully, if there's a silver lining that comes out of this pandemic will be as you say that more people will have some time. We'll have more time to research more time to sit down and cajoles some family members that usually don't go vote and devoting because everybody's kind of huddled in the house these days and it'll be more convenient because more folks will do it by mail. I hope also the we keep this and then more states have expanded voting by mail in the future. What I believe is that people should have all auctions if somebody wants to vote by mail that should be available if they want to go vote early in person that should be available if they wanNA vote on election day although I don't recommend it because you never know what's GonNa Happen but they wanna go vote on election day in person.

"Secretary Castro. . Thank you so so much for being here I'm such a huge fan of yours I think besides the fact that you're just awesome it's so interesting to me because you've worn so many different hats in your career. . Mayor Hud Secretary Author presidential candidate what has been in your opinion the most important lesson that you've taken from all of these different jobs that you've had. . I think the most important lesson I've taken is that we can actually make good positive change in people's lives by participating in the democratic process I grew up with a mom who was an activist she was part of the Mexican American Civil Rights Movement. . She was a hell raiser when she was young, , she got activists and from her I really took the idea that progress takes time but you can. . Make progress if you keep pushing and pushing and do everything that we should do get out there and Organiz boat take on big interest too often get their way so I'd say my biggest lesson has been if you keep at it, , you can make good positive change in people's lives. . It's interesting because I have actually been thinking a lot about this very thing in regards to activism which feels like. . It is about I. . Don't know maybe ninety, , eight, percent , heartache and disappointment. . That's true. . Right and two percent maybe glory but even the two percent of glorious like just little incremental thing that keeps you going but I think it's so interesting when you think about those whose shoulders that we stand on right on how a lot of them didn't really get to see what they were fighting for come into fruition like I think about Alice Paul who wrote the equal rights amendment and that was nineteen twenty-three that she wrote that and here we are however many years later. . and. . We're still trying to make that happen. So . I feel nowadays, , you sort of just have to be comfortable planting the seed and maybe never ever seen it grow into a tree and that has to be okay. . I think we're so results oriented. . We want immediate gratification. So . I think it's especially hard to know that we're potentially just planting seeds that we may never see come into fruition and I'm just starting to realize that after thirty years of activism. . That's absolutely true I think of people in. . Different generations who worked hard to get our country to live up to its greatest ideals or people around the world whose oftentimes worked and even harsh circumstances were even more equality who didn't get to see the fruits of their labor. . The double curse there or unfairness is that not only did they work very hard to plant those seeds and make progress. . But oftentimes, , as you know our history books don't tell their stories people studying in high school or a of times even college you know and. . Take any number of movements whether it was the LGBTQ movement, , the Civil Rights Movement the women's rights movement to oftentimes those stories aren't told. . Well, , you've just launched a new podcast called our America. . We you tell us a little bit about it. . I tell me about the name I WanNa know what our America means to you to me are America's speaks to the America that we are and most importantly the America that I think we can become I'm doing this podcast because over the last six years. . On the road everywhere I think I've traveled to over one hundred different communities, , big and small. . States and I heard a tremendous number of stories from people who are struggling. . We're striving some of them, , reaching their dreams many of them not, , but struggling to do so and I wanted to tell their stories and a realistic but also hopeful way in a humanizing way and in the context of a conversation with the listener about how we can actually improve things how we can make America uneven better country well, , one. . Of your persistent and defining messages as about making the American dream accessible to everyone what is the American dream? ? Now that's a great question. . I'd like to think that today the American dream is not only material right because for a long time, , the shorthand version of the American dream was owning a home and owning a car, , and hopefully our notion of the American dream involves some measure of success but also of happiness. . The first time in American history the majority of parents do not think that their kids will be better off than they were. . This is true of rich and poor men and women. . Now some of you might hear this and feel sad. . After America is deeply invested in this idea of economic transcendence that every generation kind of leapfrogs the one before it earning more buying more being more. . We've exported this dream all over the world. . So kids in Brazil and China and even Cana inherit our insatiable expectation for more. . Being able to attain that, , which makes you happy for some people that's owning a home in owning the car for other folks, , and that's not quite as important. . But there are other ways that they wanna be fulfilled being able to pursue the career that they want spend no time in a productive way like they want to time with their family any number of things I think that we'll have matured as a nation when. . Our. . Notion of the American dream goes beyond just the material things and to a notion of that which fulfils us and makes us happy. .

Julián Castro Suspends Presidential Campaign
"With a heavy heart and with profound gratitude that I will suspend my campaign for President Castro. The only major ager Latino candidate has been outspoken about the increasing lack of diversity. They need to create a presidential primary system that actually really reflects the diversity of this country and of this party just over a month left until the Iowa caucuses. The remaining candidates barnstorming the state and releasing their latest fundraising fundraising numbers Bernie Sanders raising a whopping thirty. Four point five million in the last quarter P Buddha judge taking twenty four point seven million while former Vice President Joe Oh Biden having his best quarter with twenty two point seven million but for the campaign season still lagging far behind those rivals. Do you think you've raised enough money.
"julian castro" Discussed on NPR Politics Podcast
"They're reported in three months chunks. The quarters of the year One of those quarters just ended and we have our latest snapshot of how much the campaigns are raising and what it tells us and medical before we dig into numbers can you just give us a reminder of why we care about these figures what they actually tell us. I mean if I part of it is media. Narrative like it signifies is whether or not someone has strong grassroots support signifies how long someone can go on. I mean if you think about candidates who have dropped out a big reason for why why they dropped out is because they didn't have enough funds to move on and continue going in a race you have to pay staff you have to be able to put on TV ads and you've got to be able to keep the lights on all right so let's tick through the numbers that we have so far as of this taping and then talk about what we think Bernie Sanders raised thirty four point five million dollars. It's probably going to be the most. That's about ten million dollars more than he raised in the third quarter of last year. Pete Buddha Judge Twenty four point seven million dollars Joe Biden ride in just announced twenty two point seven million dollars Andrew Yang raised sixteen and a half million dollars which is way more than he was raising earlier in the year. And even though we don't have the final numbers from Elizabeth Warren yet she had told supporters a few days before the end of the quarter that up until that point she brought in about seventeen million million dollars. So that's the state that we have so far Daniel. What jumps out to you? Well I think one thing that maybe it's important to clarify here. Is that these. These are numbers through the end of the year. That is true but the thus far the candidates have not been required to release all of the information yet so what we are hearing right now. Yes are these broad topline totals but also what we are hearing now are essentially what the candidates and the campaigns want us to here. So what we aren't necessarily hearing are things like cash cash on hand or that sort of thing but what we are hearing is candidates touting for example their average donation size so they can prove that they have grassroots bona unified. And that sort of thing. Yeah I mean I mean Bernie Sanders. Total is eye-popping the fact that he not only raises almost thirty five million dollars in one quarter. But it really really shows that the faithful who've been with Bernie Sanders since two thousand sixteen twenty fifteen are still with him and for everyone who thought including some of us that you know. His support was open to potentially going to someone. Like Elizabeth Warren Bernie Sanders is leading in all the polling with progressives. Warren is struggling struggling to peel off though sanders supporters. We thought that she had gotten them. At some point in October and this point you see Sanders having risen in some of the polls and he's a leading fundraising he's positioned pretty well to go on pretty far in this race if it comes to that and Biden's figure of twenty two point seven million alien dollars which which we got as we were taping outcast. I think really fits with the way we've been looking at his campaign in that he's been a front runner but with a lot of vulnerabilities but as the year went On he got stronger and stronger if not in a massive way but certainly having more staying power than a lot of people expected he had raised a little bit more than fifteen million dollars in the third quarter he increases that to twenty two point seven certainly far behind Bernie Sanders but up there with Pete Buddha. Judge who's been leading the charge for Democrats. Yeah and one more thing I want to get ed. I'm going to go back to averages because this whole average donation thing is the thing that fascinates me quite a bit. Is that average donations. I we were talking about this before the show I think you can credit read it Bernie Sanders in two thousand sixteen for really raising. How loudly candidates talk about average donations? And they're sort of a paradox at work in that on the one hand candidates kidneys need a crazy amount of money to run for this office and on the other hand. They're trying to get it in a small of increments as they possibly can. And so oh you have for example Bernie Sanders touting that his average donation this last quarter was around eighteen fifty people to Judas memo on his fundraising made a very clear clear. Point of saying our average donation was around thirty three dollars and you can understand. Why the Buddhists campaign would be trying to really trump at that after they have been attacked quite a bit especially by Elizabeth Warren for the whole wine cave fundraiser? We really put some of these numbers in context. Though I mean the fact is Mike Bloomberg has been spending no more than one hundred million dollars to this point on television ads in one week. This week. He's spending more money. Thirty six million dollars than Bernie Sanders took in in the entire fourth quarter. And I think it's a reminder to bigger than just this primary that money is money and there's you know as Daniel not the candidates need a lot of it to run and win in presidential campaign and president trump is blowing all these numbers out of the water for the most part and he doesn't care where the money comes from. Well that's the last question I had for you to put this all in context on one hand president trump's campaign raises forty six million dollars during the same time period way more than any other Democrats but on the other hand. If you add all the Democrats Kratz together. They're raising way more than he is. So how do we look at this that Donald trump would be stronger than the eventual Democrat on this front or that there's more democratic enthusiasm than Republican enthusiasm. Doesn't I think Democrats will have the money. Once they get a nominee but right now they're splintering not cash and trump certainly has a head start right and add one more thing to that Speaking anecdotally here and Scott. You can tell me if you've heard this on the trail to almost every voter I talked to will tell me yes. I'm enthusiastic about candidate X.. Whoever they're here to see but really they are so enthusiastic about defeating Donald Trump and so whoever the nominee ends up being I wonder if whatever fundraising their air candidate might have had it just gets shunted to the eventual nominee because Democrats? Just WanNa win and I think unless the primary takes a drastic turn over the next four months every Democrat he's.

"I've determined that it simply isn't our tongue and in Castro you know never really approach that top tier of candidates but Dominica. I do think he did have an outsized impact on this race. When it came to policies he laid out there that often? A lot of other candidates had to respond to. Yeah I mean the one moment that really stands out from the campaign is when he pushed decriminalizing border crossings and really we sort of stood out in the debates that he was in talking about underrepresented underserved communities right. Yeah and decriminalizing border crossings was one of the centerpieces pieces of his campaign. It was the first big policy that he really rolled out and he really helped shape the conversation that aside from that he also pushed diversity ready to to such an extent that in recent weeks. He's he had been talking to Iowans about how Iowa because it is not representative of the country as a whole should not be the I National Caucus State. I'm going to tell the truth. It's time for the Democratic Party to change the way that we do our presidential nominating process. And we're going to have a conversation conversation about that tonight Part of the reason for that is it. I don't believe that the two states that begin the process Iowa New Hampshire are reflective. You've of the diversity of our country or of our Party. I mean he's not wrong but not away as I guess. Dropping out of the race illustrates not a way to win support. I wouldn't Hampshire. Yeah and it reminds me of the fact that we just had to podcasts on Iowa and New Hampshire and part of those were you know we highlighted the fact that Isla and New Hampshire both overwhelmingly white states even in the Democratic primary and it's particularly glaring in when it comes to Democratic Party because of how the Democratic Party itself has changed and become more diverse and look. Castro was the one Latino in the race and now he's dropped out and he had petitioned Asian the DNC to lower the debate threshold so that you could have more candidates onstage and right now it it just is you have five of the top. Candidates are all white the one of the themes. We've talked a lot about this year. Is that for a lot of voters of color issues or other factors seem to maybe trump the idea of focusing anniversary anniversary identity. Yeah and For example Bernie Sanders polls really really well with with Tina voters and younger African Americans. I mean even in our last poll that we had because because of his overwhelming support with young voters and young people of color he led overall with voters of color. Joe Biden is supported. Obviously by African can Americans overwhelmingly especially older African Americans so voters of color are still very important within the Democratic primary. They're supporting other candidates couple of thoughts on Castro before we shift gears first of all when we interviewed a lot of the candidates over the summer for our On the trail series where we sat down had extended conversations with them. I I really came away from the Castro interview thinking that he was much more blunt as a real human being than a lot of the other candidates talked to and that was my main impression walking away from that interview and I asked him in that conversation about another roadblock that he faced and I think cory booker was in a similar position where they had both at one point been like the hot new thing being in the Democratic Party rising mayor with a really interesting different background and both of them saw that status really pulled under the rug from them by one former South Bend Indiana. Buddha judge fun fact as of yesterday he is the former mayor of south. Bend Indiana so I asked Castro how he dealt with the highs isn't lows of at one point being this rising star of the party in another point being an afterthought in a crowded field and he said first of all you just have to constantly have confidence in yourself regardless of where you are on the race so I knew that when I got into the presidential race the response wouldn't be exactly the same as if I had decided that I wanted to run in two two thousand sixteen. For some reason I would have been the young new fresh candidate running that year after delivering the keynote address twenty twelve. I knew this would be different. I accept that that just means like everything else in life that you have to work hard. And that's what we've done we've kept our head down. We've tried to connect with people and I knew that I would have to get stronger in this campaign little by little. It sounds almost as if he fell into a sort of valley among the candidates. Where he's a little too a well known to be the hot new thing but not Ubiquitous enough to be Bernie Sanders or Joe Biden who came into this race with massive name recognition. It's almost like it's bad to be in the middle there. I think yeah and I think cory booker and until very recently Amy Klobuchar a few others were in that same boat so quick note.

"julian castro" Discussed on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah: Ears Edition
"We just met our fundraising goal that we said we. We need to meet by the end of October Bryan the race and so we're working hard on the race. Okay okay. I'm going to hold you to either that or I'm just saying that you were the curse. If I do end up dropping occurred doc. You'll come back next. Show Co bear. The race has become an an interesting contest to say. The least you know you have more Democrats than ever before you have a field that likes each other but then there are few fractions within the party that have started thought it to show. You know. There's the old versus young. There's the ultra progressive versus the more moderate. You have in many ways seem to be aligned with many of the policies in Enron Elizabeth Warren. She says she's she's loved your policies. You've said you've loved her policies. What do you think it is about the two of you that has stood up this romance in and around policy a policy romance? That's what it is. She's got a great team over there and she's fantastic. Yeah I mean I think she's very impressive job on the campaign trail. I mean if you look at where she was earlier in the year you look at where she is now in many ways the front runner. I've told older you're doing I think she's right now. She's a fantastic job of fusing her biography. People need to know who you are and while you're running with her policies. I told her that I mean she's doing a great job. At storytelling with a purpose and bill so Kudos to her for what she's up too many people have said that is what you have in many ways is. You have have a story and a purpose as well. You know What's what's difficult in this race is? Many of the candidates have said feels a little bit like chicken and the egg in that. If you have have low-polling numbers the media doesn't give the coverage because you don't have media coverage your polling numbers Congo up. So how will you trying to get voters to say to them. Hey I'm a viable choice for you. Yeah well I mean. Also you had several these spokes from DC that started off by transferring millions of dollars into their keep presidential campaign bank account right right and also you notice that a lot of media focus on people who are in power in DC. That's the way it works it revolves around DC and so there's a gravitation toward that. I think you start off with an advantage. Even though I they have some of the most relevant experience in this race I was a big city mayor and a cabinet secretary. I have executive experience. I was starting from scratch. You know I hadn't been obviously hadn't run for President before run for governor or senator but since then it's been a process basically of catching up and I hope folks have been noticing that our campaign has been very different from from most of the other campaigns ways. I've been bold. I've been fearless. I wasn't afraid to tackle the issue of immigration in April before. Anybody else was talking about that. You had a lot of people backtracking tracking being afraid of taking on trump right. I knew that a lot of people would think. Hey you know. If you're releasing the immigration plan people are GonNA think you're the Brown guy doing brown things but I said no I mean this. This guy thinks that he's GonNa win on this issue and the way to face a bully is not to back up but actually present a strong compelling vision of your own for the future. That's what I did on police reform.

"Boys believed that not masturbating increases testosterone and makes them more desirable to Women Min which brings up. One question is working for the proud boys. Research actually finds that less. Masturbation reduces testosterone. So there's evidence that masturbating makes you a more masculine man. A lot of really good things happen in your body and your brain but also research finding that people who watch more pornography. They are more feminist and interestingly they've developed more egalitarian values over time. You're right I watch a lot of gang bangs and one day I thought Oh my God women have it so hard ard. This isn't fair. Ninety five guys and one girl we need some better representation here and the proud boys are just the tip. There are stroke chambers all over the alright so Canadian psychologist. Dr Jordan Peterson leader in the alright movement in Canada and he he tells young men. There's nothing noble about masturbating pornography. That's terrible I mean. What else are they going to do up there? In between periods of hockey that's noble that's L. lately that's healthy David. Duke was a former grand wizard of the KKK. He believes that pornography is Jewish conspiracy to get young white eight men to masturbate instead of procreating and so the white race dies out. What is it about the Jews with these guys? And speaking of which this far right moratorium on Salami wrestling has been going on longer than you think. The Nazis taught young men not to masturbate. Nazis Nazis used sexual suppression as a way to increase malleability and people if we can get people to give masturbation we can get them to do anything I they came for our flashlights and I said nothing so it's not. Just the insidious believes mob violence in haircuts the right check this off the Nazis to their teaching these kids to hate themselves to be ashamed of themselves and then they can exploit them they go down this rabbit hole of these extreme stream dangerous beliefs and become radicalized. So what you're saying is masturbation can save lives definitely no what. Let's do it right now. Let's show let's go come on take your. We can't show you the rest of that interview. But I will say when I think about these young people being manipulated into joining hate groups. It makes me very angry and frustrated and excuse me for one second anyway. If you anyone you know seems to be getting drawn into to the Albright before buying that Tiki torch tried lighting. The one inside your Khakis I. I'm Michael Kosta telling all you young angry men to stop hating and start. Being Michael Cost everyone right back. My guest tonight is twenty. Twenty presidential candidate who served as President Obama Secretary of Housing and Urban Development as well as Mayor Mayo of San Antonio please welcome who Castro welcome back to the show good to be back. Oh you got some love and auto. And he's Oh so here you are on the campaign trail before we get into it. I just WanNa say this upfront. biddle rock was just on the show said to my face that he he was not going to drop out of the race then dropped out four days later I was like he lied to my face. I'm not going anywhere then forties as like. Yeah I'm going somewhere. I'm going somewhere anywhere you don't. We just met our fundraising goal that we said. We need to meet by the end of October the race and so we're working hard on the race. Okay okay. I'm going to hold you to either that or I'm just saying that you were the curse. If I do end up dropping occurred I'll take You're welcome back next. Show her musical bears. The the race has become an interesting contest to say. The least you know you have more Democrats than ever before you have a field that likes each other but then there are a few fractions within in the party that have started to show. You know. There's the old versus young. There's the ultra progressive versus the more moderate. You have in many ways seemed to be aligned with many of the policies in Enron Elizabeth Warren Warren. She says she's loved your policies. You've said you loved her policies. What do you think it is about the two of you that has stood up this this romance in and around policy a policy romance? That's what it is. She's got a great team over there. She's fantastic. Yeah I mean I think she's been very impressive job on the campaign trail. I mean if you look at where she was earlier in the year you look at where she is now in many ways the front runner honor. I've told her you know you're doing I think right now. She's doing a fantastic job of fusing her biography. People need to know who you are and while you're running with her policies policies right and I told her that I mean she's doing a great job at storytelling with a purpose. And you know so Kudos to her. What she's up too? Many people have said that is what you have in many ways. Is You have a story and a purpose as well. You know What's what's difficult in this race? As many of the candidates have said it feels a little bit like chicken and the egg in that. If you have low polling numbers the media doesn't give you the coverage because you don't have media coverage you'll polling numbers can't go up. So how will you trying to get out to voters to say to them. Hey I'm a viable choice for you. Yeah well I mean also you had several these folks from DC that started off by transferring millions of dollars into their key presidential campaign bank account right right and also notice that a lot of the media focus on people who are in power in DC. That's the way it works revolves around DC and so there's a gravitation toward that. I think you start off with an advantage wjr even though I have some of the most relevant experience in this race I was a big city mayor and a cabinet secretary. I have executive experience. I was starting from scratch. You know I hadn't been obviously `and run for President before run for governor senator but since then it's been a process basically of catching up and our hope folks have been noticing that our campaign has been very different from most of the other campaigns ways. I've been bold. I've been fearless. I wasn't afraid to tackle the issue of immigration April. Before anybody else was talking about that you had a Lotta people backtracking being afraid of taking on trump. When he writes I knew that a lot of people would think? Hey you know if you release the immigration plan people are GonNA think you're the Brown Guy Doing Brown things I said. No I mean this guy thinks that he's GonNa win on this issue and the way to face a bully is not to back up but actually present a strong compelling vision of your own for the future. That's what I did on police reform before you move on. That is an interesting point that you bring up because what you said at the debates became a talking point that has followed followed the Democrats now and that was you said you want to decriminalize illegal border crossings now. It is a very confusing term because some people think that means crossing the border into America illegally means. You could just come into America but that that's what it is. That's not what so. What does it mean for those who don't understand the term? What it means is we would go back to the way that we used to treat somebody crossing the border without permission? which is that it would be a civil offense so there would still be accountability? But we remove this misdemeanor that trump has weaponize two separate migrant parents incarcerate rate them separate them from their children so this law that he's using to do this that he's weaponising. Section Thirteen twenty-five Immigration Nationality Act was in effect from nine hundred twenty nine to just after nine eleven but it wasn't enforced by Republicans by Democrats and then after nine eleven and especially with trump. It got weaponized. We don't need needed. We can still have border security but treat people with common sense and compassion instead of this damned cruelty that this guy or future administration might want to use. It hasn't been a bit frustrating. Creating frustrating for you at times being asked questions about Hispanic voters where people oftentimes automatically assume assume that Hispanic means illegal immigrants or undocumented worker or it seems like there was this there was this you know implied notion in America as soon as people say they Hispanic vote and the people who are like Oh that means undocumented or that means people who are Daca dreamers etc.. Has it been hard to explain to people that. It's not a homogeneous group. I mean you know. There's more than enough breath. I think you know bullshit to go round when it comes to this they. You know you're right. There's a one dimensional view of a lot of the Latino community. Yes and a lot of people when they think of the Latino community. They think that you just got here five minutes ago. My grandmother that I grew up with got here in one thousand nine hundred eighty two also when people think about are talking about the working class they always the white working class rights. Or what about the black working class the Latino working class and you made contact by implication by implication. There's this sense that if we're talking about people who have to work for a living or working for a living but it does you know it only increases the white working class and so there's more than enough in our political talk that bad directions and making assumptions. What I've tried to do is just boss through all of that to take all that on? Do you think that some of the front on drums in this race and some of your peers have made the mistake of focusing only on those votes because people speak about them you know they're in Pennsylvania you know. They'll go like in Wisconsin we. We've got the white working class voter. We have to win back and some say that there is a risk of alienating black and Latino working class voters who go well what about me. Do you think the the party has maybe gone too far in one direction. I think we have to do both of those things. And that's what I've been trying to do that. My campaign has spoken to issues of economic opportunity opportunity and also racial and social justice and fuse those better than any other campaign because we do have to go into Michigan Wisconsin Pennsylvania but remember those are states that have ruled components that are mostly white. They also have Detroit and Milwaukee and Philadelphia that are urban and very diverse. So we have to be able to Bolton those things not even to talk about places like Florida twenty nine electoral votes. If we won there would give some room or win the election of itself or my home state of Texas that is very urban and and also very rural so we need a candidate that can do both of those things and I know that I can do both of those things. Energize it Obama coalition that he put together in two thousand eight uh-huh supercharge that bring people off the sidelines and into the voting booths. But I think you're going to have to break through by being bold and fearless and that's what I've tried to do It may or May. Buddha judge made some news when he said he thinks that the Democratic race is now a two-horse horseracing said it's between him and Elizabeth. Warren many were like wow. You've just written off binding written-off everybody else and he said this is what I'm doing was a strange for you. Having Buddha. Just say that especially considering that you are a male of a much bigger town and you guys had a little little spat back and forth where he said you said. He doesn't have a great relationship with black voters. You know you pointed the incidents that have occurred in South Bend. He didn't sits you well. Why not come out to my neck of the woods and I'll show you around? Have you taken him up on that. And what do you. What do you think you have that? That is that deficit him with regards to the experience of being a male. I actually had a good track record with black voters. And we're folks that I worked with in San Antonio which I think is different and my point was that we're going to need a nominee that can resonate in the African American community? Black women have been those powering. Victories everywhere from Alabama damage to the two thousand eighteen wins. And so what I said was that it's risky to have a candidate at the top of the ticket. That cannot speak week two in a convincing way those different communities and I think the track record Zehr on his end in San Antonio my experience was the exact opposite of that in fact I got a pointed to the Obama Administration as housing secretary largely because of the work that we did on the east side of San Antonio which traditionally was the African American part of town rights And you know we got a promise neighborhood grant. We got a choice neighborhood grant. We made other investments right away to try and lift up the quality of life and economic opportunity ready for the people that live there and so I think the track records are different I'm sure there are some things that he's done..

"That's like a big thing back shirt into orgy. But what's the Wifi guys. My aunt's it's GonNa love these pictures. Now it's kind of hard to take the Wall Street crowd seriously and not just because they still think Bluetooth cool but also because this isn't the first time they've predicted the end of the world. Everything that Obama is promising is destructive to our economy and detrimental to the stock market. I think the national economies Johnny's in for a bad thing if he wins if it's Obama Larry. I'm I'm scared for this economy. I'm scared for this country. Numerous economists and business leaders they are thinking the economy and the stock market will tank if trump wins in November. If trump wins you will see a market crash of historic proportions portions Yes for. Both trump and Obama analysts claimed that the stock market would tank. But you know what actually happened. The exact opposite. It's been going up for ten years because you see in many ways. The stock market is a lot like a penis right. There are many situations where you sweat. It's going to be down but surprise I surprised it just keeps rising and nobody knows why you like dude seriously at Grandma's funeral I'm not controlling it. I don't understand why it's just happening there. So the one percents a clearly not excited at the prospect of Elizabeth Warren winning the White House but according to these billionaires. They aren't just anti Warren in because he's threatening their wallets. No they don't like her because she's also hurting their feelings. The Battle of the billionaires continues after Leon Cooperman was brought to tears is yesterday on. CNBC cooperman was and has been very critical of Elizabeth. Warren's proposed wealth tax. I don't need Warren totally that I'm a deadbeat and that billionaires are dead beat the vilification of billionaires makes no sense to meet people can not only see the emotion on your face but hear it in your voice this when you talk about this Lee why I care the wait are you crying. You're a billionaire WHO's crying because Elizabeth Warren is criticizing billionaires. Would would you like a tissue ask you something only time. You should be crying as a billionaire is when a ghost teaches you the meaning of Christmas. That's the only time and I'm disappointed in this. I'M NOT GONNA lie because of all the things that have made me want to become a billionaire. There's no what I wanted to become a billionaire because I thought the whole point of becoming a billionaire is that so you never have to give a shit about money ever again but these guys over here like how will I afford to throw hookah birthday party for my yacht who the third ultralights every day. These men seem to be getting angrier and angrier. The question is why well we sent Michael Kosta to try and find outs meet the Albright. You're a loosely. Connected Group of right wing white nationalist known for chanting confusing conspiracy theories like it all while dressed like kids. WHO's divorced? DADS made their Halloween costumes. And these World War Two reenactment rejects have one other thing in common. They are angry but what are they have to be so angry about. I'm a white guy. Thinks great cops. Don't call me over I pull. Oh them over to ask for a bottle opener. Thanks Officer No. You have a great day. There's no logical reason why the Albright should be so angry. They're kind of winning. But what if there was a deeper reason for their frustration across the outright movement leaders are telling young men not to masturbate it the WHO. What clinical psychologist? Dr David Lay has a theory about why these young men are so angry. They're not strangling their pepys. They know how to masturbate. They're not going side to side right. They know it's up and down. I don't I think this is a technique issue. They are actually trying to masturbate. Used to take me hours now. It's like well. I have one hand so you know it. It gets lots of practice. This Guy Masturbate S- Dr Les explained the main proponents of this no wink..

"It's me douchebag although people should realize self partner is going to be a type of relationship which means you're still gonNA get jealous sometimes even if you're dating yourself it'd be sneaking a look at your own phone like hey who is me me and finding your own stuff around the apartment who's underwears this mine. I can't believe I do this to me. What I like about the term? Self partner that it removes the stigma of being singled because the woods. Single seem like a loser. You know. I'm single but self partnered sound like a choice. I like that. I think we should find and better names while the things in life like a thief. I'm an expert in borrowing. Sounds cool as a nice ring to moving on science news if you know someone who thinks that they're the center of the universe first of all congratulations on working in the White House and second it turns out. That's an impossible. Scientific America reports new studies suggest the the universe might actually be giant loop. The study was published in the Journal. Nature it says instead of being flat the universe may be curved like a massive inflated latest balloon the scientists say if someone were to travel outside our galaxy into deep space they loop around and end up back where they started. Wow this is something. I don't really understand what what does that mean. The universe loops back around like like a pacman board. Is that if you leave the one side and then you come back on the other side you get the fruits. Is that how that works because I love how the news reported like we should all know what that means. You know the the reporters are just like previously. We thought the universal slant we did that did you did you ever. I've never thought about the shape of the universe. Okay once I did but I didn't know the edibles we're GONNA kick in that hot. I mean the only time but for real though this is fascinating but it'll never affect me. It's like that time we found out the T.. Rex sounded like a duck. I mean I'm glad I know but I can't do shit with that information because WHO's leaving the universe people. Don't even go to Queens. I mean but if I understand I understand the study right. Scientists are basically saying that the universe is a closed circle. Loop if you go down one side of the universe universe you come back on the other side so like if you travel far enough eventually you'll find yourself. Oh my Emma Watson figured it out guys. So that's a little headline. Let's move on now that election day. Twenty nineteen in is officially over the next big voting down. Everyone's calendar is November. Third Twenty twenty. It's the day. Donald trump will face off against the Democratic nominee. All his parole board. Nobody knows nobody knows. But before that day the Democrats need to decide who their champion is going to be so.

Everyone's focused has turned to Elizabeth Warren Massachusetts Senator and onto writes. I love you and all your facebook pictures over the past few weeks. Warren has shot to the top of the polls.

"On January twenty twenty one will stay the Donald Trump. i julian castro they're saying audio's to trump referring to the democrats taking over and that he wouldn't win obviously it was the big democratic debate which had to be split up because of the amount of democrats the what i say the squares version of i'm running you're running and so were they across the hall it's pretty interesting kate delaney and here we are on the show talking about politics in this time next year it'll be a whole different ballgame because then there will be one against the president and we'll see who that one is we could speculate all day long right now polling wise joe biden who's up next on thursday night with another group of democrats it'll be interesting to see what he has to say it's going to be the same kinds of topics about the border iran the situation with health care all the things that we wrestle with that i sit you care about in your backyard and a mine who was the big loser who was the big winner of the evening that becomes interesting i think that julian castro did finally held zone and he would have come out of this looking pretty good one guy who didn't look as good is in somebody who when he's the soundbite and he's by himself and he's in his crown comes off pretty good but i would say a rourke didn't come off as good so if i were handicapping this and i were a poster like frank luntz the big poster dude his made a ton of money and a big name in the gig of looking at the debates looking at people you know and taking the poll so to speak of of what happened i would agree with me because i think congressman beta aerobic just didn't come off looking great he's tepid and he just wasn't very effective when he you know he spoke he talked about his daughter and that he cared about kids in the future but it's just they were more just like one liners talking points i guess and cory booker the senator from jersey he probably did okay when he was debating his forceful he he spoke about things that people in the audience democrats would care about he was pretty powerful in the way he said his words that kind of thing so i would say that he probably came off the probably the best but one thing that did happen a lot and i watched the whole thing is there were times where you couldn't even understand what someone was saying who's like the radio no when you have a giant radio crew and people are talking over each other and you can't understand what they said you're laugh and you're driving to work almost driving off the road you're in the middle of their bit you get it and then all of a sudden somehow they lose it because everybody's talking at once and this is what happened a couple of times talking over each other because you can't hear them and so some of the exchanges were lame and a rourke caught up in a couple of those so that didn't have that didn't help them and i think that made him ineffective so i was going to pick somebody who didn't come off as well and was if i'm going to tag them as the loser i think he would have been the loser in the debate if you're listening i don't care if you're right of right left of left somewhere in between you want to weigh in on half of the hollywood squares that went off in the democrats you certainly can do that eight five five to six six fifty to eighty three eight five five to six six to eighty three some of you already have fling the email my way so to speak so when we go into the mail bag i'll jump into i'll jump into that then mean then you also had some people that you had no idea who they were right and this is part of the problem because there's so many i mean the former u._s. secretary of housing and urban development julian castro a lot of people you know him or have seen his space that kind of thing whereas you have others that just they're they're just not not known governor jay inslee he i think he came off well on his point his whole point is about climate change that's it the one thing he focuses on that the boom that's it and he called himself the only candidate has passed a law protecting a woman's right to reproductive health to in the couple of times he jumped in and he was pretty pretty strong but as many of you know listening to us in washington who may like them might not like them depending on your point of view he he's not the big money guys he he's not the one stepping into this ring i mean it'd be i think it'd be shocking if he emerged because you've got biden and sanders and and the polling matters and that's the same with the new york mayor bill de blasios oh he said that the upcoming election is battle for the heart and soul of our party he said it's supposed to be the party of working people there's plenty of money in this country is just in the wrong hands so there were a couple of references about money and rich people in the elite in the white house and you know that kind of thing but the debate rules were pretty interesting debate started at nine o'clock eastern on it aired on n._b._c. m._s._n._b._c. and telemundo so they had sixty seconds to answer questions they certainly blood over thirty seconds to respond like i said there was some stepping over each other that certainly happened so you had on the stage to be clear build a blasi oh yet congressman tim ryan from ohio former obama hud secretary mentioned julian castro from texas senator cory booker from new jersey senator elizabeth warren from -chusetts former congressman fate or roared from texas senator amy klobuchar from minnesota congresswoman tulsi gabbard from hawaii inslee of washington and then former congressman john delaney no relation to me by the way from maryland a couple of times he tried to jump in maybe like wait a second year in a like john we're going to use his pretty pretty interesting and and thursday will be interesting but remember incumbency schools in the three last if we go back to the three previous presidents they've all had two terms so what are the odds that this president won't be that president right what are what are the odds of that by the way the republicans around the president are telling him to stay out of this whole democratic thing you don't have to weigh in on a who cares republican strategists are saying just rise above the fray of whatever is going on getting in gauged in it the ten democrats climbed on the stage on wednesday for this first presidential debate he was halfway around the world he's going to the g twenty summit in japan and then the next debate he'll be meeting with world leaders to talk about iran north korea global trade and several other issues that are on the agenda two so this miami debate that the first one kicking off both nights through miami you know shows the crowded field of democrats trying to take on the president but the president's record and his style certainly hangs out there in the balance and they're gearing up to counter whatever the democratic hit is whatever the broadsides are so to speak but not now not at the twenty similar there may be something you know tweet it out because trump said last week he told fox news that he's considering tweeting during the debates but how saves didn't respond to questions about whether he'd watch invasion of course again you're on the plane and that whole thing so here we go game on of the if you remember the last time around in twenty-six teen if you go back to two thousand sixteen he just he had la a lot of things he tweeted out but really one that said he said get rid of all these commercials hashtag democrat debate he complained about the number of there you go you can bet r._n._c. folks though were watching monitoring looking at the commentary looking at what the responses were all that stuff because that's what you would do if you're in that role looking at what the issues are the things you know what the counter attack i guess would would be and and it's the obvious is the obvious issues and some that aren't quite as obvious i guess but of course the border the border the border and iran what we're looking at right now and especially with the with the border because the democrats are trying to own the sympathy certainly side of that so that was brought up in specific names of people or can you imagine families in the separation and that was set a couple of different ways in a couple of different times i'm not surprised about that trying to connect to the horrible side like the photograph that was you know seen all over the world the other day where you had a father or you could tell it was a man and look like his son they were faced down in the water and dead from coming over trying to cross the border and i think that was an issue that was definitely definitely laid up no question about that all right coming up as i mentioned several you jumped right on.
"julian castro" Discussed on AM 1350 WEZS
"On january twenty twenty twenty one will say the the donald trump julian castro they're saying audio's to trump referring to the democrats taking over and then he wouldn't win obviously it was the big democratic debate which had to be split up because of the amount of democrats the what i say squares version of i'm running you're running and so were they across the hall pretty interesting kate delaney and here we are in the show talking about politics in this time next year will hold different ballgame because then there will be one against the president and we'll see who that one is we could speculate all day long right now pulling wise joe biden who's up next on thursday night with another group of democrats it'll be interesting to see what he is to say it's going to be the same kinds of topics about the border iran the situation with health care all the things we wrestle with that i say you care about in your backyard and mine who was the big loser who was the big winner of the evening that becomes interesting i think that julian castro did find held zone and he would have come out of this looking pretty good one guy who didn't look as good is somebody who when he's a soundbite and he's by himself and he's in his crown comes off pretty good but i would say a roar didn't come off as good so if i were handicapping this and i were a poster like frank luntz the big poster dude his made a ton of money and a big name in the gig of looking at the debates looking at people And taking the poll, so to speak of what happened. i would agree with me because i think congressman beta our work just didn't come off looking great he's kind of tepid and he just wasn't very effective when he you know he spoke he talked about his daughter and that he cared about kids in the future but it's just they were more just like one liners talking points i guess and cory booker the senator from jersey he probably did okay when he was debating his forceful he he spoke about things that people in the audience democrats would care about he was pretty powerful in the way he said his words that kind of thing so i would say that he probably came off the probably the best but one thing that did happen a lot and i watched the whole thing is a retired couldn't even understand what someone saying who's like the radio no when you have a giant radio crew and people are talking over each other and you can't what they said you're laugh in your driving to work almost driving off the road you're in the middle of their bit you get it and then all of a sudden somehow they lose it because everybody's talking at once and this is what happened a couple of times talking over each other because you can't hear them and so some of the exchanges were lame and a rourke caught up in a couple of those so that didn't have that didn't help them and i think that made him in effective so i was going to pick somebody who didn't come off as well and was if i'm gonna tag as loser i think he would have been the loser in the debate if you're listening i don't care if you're right right left of left somewhere in between you wanna weigh in on half of a hollywood squares that went off in the democrats certainly do that eight five five to six fifty to eighty three eight five five to six six to eighty three some of you already have fling the email my way so to speak so when we go into the mail bag i'll jump into i'll jump into that then then you also had some people that you had no idea who they were right and this is part of the pr problem because there's so many i mean the former u._s. secretary of housing and urban development julian castro a lot of people know him or have seen his face that kind of thing whereas you have others that just they're they're just not not known governor jay inslee he i think he came off well on his point his whole point is about climate change so that's it the one thing he focuses on that boom that's it and he called himself the only candidate has passed a law protecting women's rights to reproductive health to in the couple of times he jumped in and he was pretty pretty strong but as many of you know listening to us in washington who may like them might not like them depending on your point of view he he's not the big money guys he he's not the one stepping into this ring i mean it'd be i think it'd be shocking if he emerged because you've got biden sanders and the polling matt others and that's the same with the new york mayor bill the blasi oh he said that the upcoming elections battle for the heart and soul of our party he said it's supposed to be the party of working people there's plenty of money in this country is just in the wrong hands so there were couple of references about money and rich people in the elite in the white house and you know that kind of thing but the debate rules were pretty interesting debate started at nine o'clock eastern on it aired on n._b._c. m._s._n._b._c. and telemundo so they had sixty seconds stance or questions they certainly blood over thirty seconds to respond like i said there was some stepping over each other that certainly happened so you had on the stage to be clear build a blasi oh yet congressman tim ryan from ohio former obama hud secretary mentioned julian castro from texas senator cory booker from new jersey senator elizabeth warren massachusetts former congressman paid our roared from texas senator amy clova char for minnesota congresswoman tulsi gabbard from hawaii inslee of washington and then former congressman john delaney no relation to me by the way from maryland a couple of times he tried to jump in maybe like wait a second year in a like you john we're going to use his pretty pretty interesting and and thursday will be interesting but remember incumbency schools in the three last if we go back to the three previous presidents they've all had two term so what are the odds that this president won't be that president right what are what are the odds of that by the way the republicans around the president are telling him to stay out of this whole democratic thing you don't have to weigh in on a who cares republican trips strategists are saying just rise above the fray of whatever is going on getting in gauged in it as the ten democrats climbed on the stage on wednesday for this first presidential debate he was halfway around the world he's going to the g twenty summit in japan and then the next debate he'll be meeting with world leaders to talk about iran north korea global trade and several other issues that are on the agenda two so this miami debate that the first one kicking off both nights through miami shows the crowded field of democrats trying to take on the president but the president's record and his style certainly hangs out there in the balance and they're gearing up to counter whatever the democratic hit is whatever the broadsides are so to speak but not now not at the g twenty summit although there may be something you know tweet it out because trump said last week he told fox news that he's considering tweeting during the debates but house aides didn't respond to questions about whether he'd watch the base and of course again you're on the plane and that whole thing so here we go game on of Oh. if you remember the last time around in twenty sixteen if you go back to twenty sixteen he just he had a lot of things he tweeted out but really one that said he said get rid of all these commercials hashtag democrat debate he complained about the number of rehearsal there you go you can bet r._n._c. folks though were watching monitoring looking at the commentary looking at what the responses were all that stuff because that's what you would do if you're in that role looking at what the issues are the things the counter attack i guess would would be and and it's the obvious it's the obvious issues and some that aren't quite as obvious i guess but of course the border the border the border and iran what we're looking at right now and especially with the with the border because the democrats are trying to own the sympathy certainly side of that and so that was brought up and

"It's amazing. Triple eight nine hundred thirty three ninety three we continue to hear about. More people in the democrat party running for president in twenty twenty the list is growing every single day. Julian Castro was on CNN yesterday talking to Jake tapper, and he talked about what a wall would do to America over time. Here's what he had to say that don't get a paycheck right earlier this month because it has Pelosi said that the wall was quote immoral as you know, as stated there are roughly six hundred fifty miles of existing wall barrier fencing at the border are they immoral. Well, I don't think it represents the best of what America stands for. I. We were to build kind of wall. Donald Trump is talking about and admittedly, as you know, sometimes that's hard to figure out because Sundays he says, it's a beautiful big concrete wall and other days, he says, it's steel slats. And then he says it's something else. But I believe Domenichelli that if we were to build that wall that it would change the notion of America from the statue of liberty that stands for freedom and welcomes immigrants to a country that literally walls itself off from the rest of the world. And maybe that wouldn't make much of a difference on day one when we do that. But I believe that as years go by would change how we see ourselves as Americans in. How other see us and have a real impact on who we are. And that's not a path that we want to go down. So yeah, I agree that that to do. So would be more. But I don't want to spend the whole time talking about the wall. But if there are already six hundred and fifty four miles of fencing wall, right? Why would adding one hundred miles? More change, the nature of of notion of this nation anymore than I mean, we already have that why adding changed who we are wouldn't I would say two things number ones that that six hundred fifty four miles was built out some time ago, and that was built out when the technology to be able to monitor what is happening at the border was not what it is today. In other words, that's an old style of doing things, and we have a more effective way without that kind of barrier to do it. The other argument that people have made that believe is true. Is that we've addressed where we might where you might argue that okay? You need a physical structure physical barrier. Six hundred fifty four miles. And no that's not the case for the rest. Let's move on. Wow. Is that agonizing? How ludicrous is that? The wall wasn't immoral, but it is now because different technology now was it immoral when hell the Democrats gave eight billion dollars to President Obama for border fencing was that immoral. And by the way, I've read something I totally missed this at the time when they started negotiating Pelosi and Schumer and Trump on this realize, and this has been confirmed by leaders on both sides of the aisle realized that Chuck Schumer agreed to give Trump twenty five billion dollars. I'm talking about couple of months ago, and it was less wall. And then re renege three days later. I never realized I know that's what Trump wanted. I never realized until yesterday that Schumer agreed to that for a few days. Wow. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. We get line. Then he got back in line. They they decided to fund the entirety of the wall, which was twenty five billion. But they want to they wanted to three mors that trade off. Yeah. It was DACA Trump. Yeah. And and Trump told him, no. But they withdrew it anyway. So by the way, Julian Castro completely disqualified from the presidency, I cannot have another president that uses the word notion over and over again the way Obama did. Yeah. That's that's a new democrat that well, it's not that new. It's been around as ball bomb. Brought it into vogue. But yeah, everything was emotion. In other words, talk now notion rights shut up. Triple eight nine hundred thirty three ninety three all right, data breach just happened and expose twenty four million more of us to title fraud, which is a crime that could cost you your home, actually..

"What I did see at Stanford when I write about in the book is I could see the inequality that exists in schools across the United States. And I write about a moment where we were thinking a dining hall. All and talking about the number of AP classes that folks had taken. You know, folks will remember advanced placement classes, right? And there was some guy that had taken like twelve AP classes and gun the credits in my school together, I think offered like two or three. So you could just tell it a at a small level, the differences and what those differences can mean for students? I could really see that at Stanford because you had people there from every single state. And I wanna say, thirty seven different countries at the time I was there. So you think this point there is still some high schools and junior high schools that operate on on sort of a separate but equal type of system? Not equal. Sorry. Separate Benatti. Yeah, not equal. There's no question in my mind, both from my personal experience. I grew up and went to the public schools. My whole life to I write about in the book go. Going back in between college and law school. And for one semester, I was a permanent substitute teacher at my old high school, and I got a different perspective at that point on the students that I was trying to teach. And then as as a mayor of San Antonio dedicating a lot of my time to try and improve the educational achievement of the city, of course, there's still a tremendous amount of of inequality out there. And you know, the good news is there are some policy makers out there in our country that are trying with all of their effort to fix that and trying to dedicate both the the ingenuity and the resources that are necessary. But there also a lot of headwinds out there. You know, I, I would put the US congress and and the president, as well as a lot of state legislatures in that there's a great story about a guess when you and your brother were at Stanford. You both ran for the students Senate and somehow actually Ty. Tied for that office in ended up sharing it, right. Yeah. Well, you know, we were both able to. We ran for the ASU which is the student Senate of Stanford was our first election. We'd never run for anything before and they had these weird rules. You know, you could only campaign for one week. There was a ninety dollars campaign spending limit, and people could vote online. There were forty three candidates running for student Senate and the top ten candidates would get a voting slot in the Senate. So you know there was more than one place that was available. Fortunately and walking and I campaigned together. We figured out that the best way to put the best place to put our fliers. Campaign flyers was on the back of bathroom stalls because he had a captive audience. People couldn't avoid your flyer. So we just, you know, littered, the back stalls, I can't being posters and on election night, they announced that we had tied with eight hundred and eleven votes. And so we we were both in first place, which is kind of odd because I found out later that there was somebody that voted for him and not for me really. Which means it somebody most voted for me not for him. Yeah, so thank you to wherever you are out there. Yeah, you know they, they always say that all the trends begin in California and I have to say that ninety dollars spending limit and the one week campaign that might be a pretty good idea. Maybe we could run with that maybe scale it up a little bit. Yeah, we're gonna take a quick break, and then I'll be back with more with Julian Castro. When we come back in just a minute..

"We've seen some fantastic examples in this cycle alone of how these polls have been off. I'm thinking about the all Hyundai. I got you. Of course, there's race against Joe Crowley in New York and somebody that I supported in their Andrew Gill of Florida. I mean, Andrew headed in the last couple of days of that five way. Primary was down by more than ten points. Those polls I mean, not a single poll got that. Right. And yes, it's true. That Texas is still, you know, relatively conservative, although that has been changing in twenty sixteen it had one of the biggest jumps toward the democrat toward Hillary, plenty of any of the states in our country. That'll Rourke is fantastic candidate. He is inspired a lot of folks. I he's been every. Single one of the two hundred and fifty four counties in Texas. He is has out raised crew. I think something like five out of the last six cycles just at the record for fundraising based on a whole bunch of individuals small dollar contributions. So I just have this feeling that gets tussle this time that the damage just gonna break, you know, one of those things where need you say. Wow. What happened here? It's also true that you know. Yes. There are a lot of headwinds. And there are a lot of people because you can still vote straight ticket down there that will vote Republican. But Vishnu there's a chance, you know. This is the best chance that we've had in twenty five years. Do you think the Democrats take the house? I do. Oh, I do. Yeah. I think we're gonna take the house. I believe it's possible to take the Senate. Although, of course, that is harder. Just given where the contests the contests that are hot are right now in the country. So let's let's talk a little bit about the book and your your upbringing, which is which is fascinating read the book. And it's I I would preface my remarks by saying, it's it's not a typical political book in that. It's not eight z of every program you ever sponsored while mayor San Antonio and at at high there's a little bit of that. But it's really very personal and very come across a very introspective sense of type of guy and Fasano twin brother Joaquin who's a congressman from Texas you in this working class neighborhood, raise largely by your grandma and your mom mom's a kind of a community organizer there in for city council. Couple years before you're born. I believe I dad was largely out of your life. He he had his own family actually, several kids when he your mom got together and your book as I said deals, very frankly through grandma's, depression, your mom's bounce with drinking and you say in the book. At age eleven my brother is centrally had no curfew. Mama's also lacks household chores. They weren't even hard and fast rules about whether we had desert before Mueller after which is very focused on on school. And you and your brother grew up to be very incredibly disciplined people on your own you figured out how to get enough credits to graduate from high school early. They knew both got into Stanford and you both got into Harvard Law School. How did you guys make it out neighborhood where as you say half your classmates didn't was what was it? Well, I think the the interesting part there was at my mom raising us. Mostly without my father. They split when we were eight, but with my grandmother there. What made the difference was? She was very very loving mother. And she made sure that she put us. I I talk in the book about the challenge that she had, you know, like one time she was drinking too much, and she was going down the path basically oppose it taking over and one day in October nineteen eighty six he stopped just quit drink. Yeah. And I think and I I know I'm going to be careful because just because somebody's able to stop doesn't mean that they don't love their family or their kids better. I saw that at the time as you know, a real measure of how determined she was to to be there for us for walking in me. And so we started with the mother that that was always looking out for us. And is you know, that even though she was lenient. Let us do what we wanted to do. What she helped us do was to develop an internal self-discipline where we took pride and doing our homework and doing well in school,.

"Bully on Castro. Welcome to it's all political. Thanks a lot. Joe takes so want. You're calling from Washington DC right now, you're about to launch your new book the first event your book tour. It's called an unlikely journey which will take you to the bay area here for a couple of appearances. We'll get to those in a minute one it to Munich and university. But let's talk before we get into the book and your your life. I want. Let's talk a little politics of the moment here. You just spent the weekend campaigning in Iowa for some of the Democrats there as we said, you got a new memoir out. You've got new super Pac. Let's do the math here all says, you're running for president twenty twenty is that where are you on the decision making a tree on that? Well, you're right. That that I've been thinking about it very straightforward folks that I'm thinking about running for president. I've been out to Iowa couple of times you Hampshire a couple of times. I'm going to make a decision after them the liberal election. And they're kind of two parts to that one is personal my family. And I of course, have talked about it. But we're gonna we're gonna have to slow down and. Really had a long conversation about what that would be to my workers like four four and two or some- somewhere around there there there my daughter's nine, and my son is three nine three SO. We have, you know, fairly young kids. And then I also travel to different states helping candidates that are running in twenty eighteen I'm getting closer at you know, what what's sinking the November election is also going to give us a lot of good information about the mood of the country. What people are thinking. So there's not a rush to make that kind of decision, and you know, definitely wait until after November to make it. What are you? What are you looking to hear when you're sort of taking the pulse of the of the country when you're out there? What people are talking about. What are the issues that are the forefront of their mind how they feel about the current administration? What I hear is a lot of dissatisfaction a lot of disappointment with Donald Trump and more than that. You know, you hear a lot of folks that are disgusted by the way that politics is being done with this Republican majority and with the president in Washington DC. I'm I'm hearing that people want a new generation of leadership. And I think that the next critic nominees probably going to be relatively new face. And so all of those things relevant as I think about my own future. And you say in the book that you your your wife has been with you for longtime. When even when you're running for office in San Antonio where you're from. And you say we have a fantastic quote. We have a fantastic life together. But politics occupies this sort of this inbetween zone for her. She doesn't love it. She doesn't hate it. But she engages in it because she knows it matters. Because it makes you happy. How do you? How do you reconcile that because running for president as you know, as you know, you've you've been in the national stages as cabinet secretary. This is a more than a full-time commitment is how how does how do you? How do you factor? All that in. Well, that's part of it. You know? And that's part of the the the conversation that we're gonna have to have, you know, Erica has always been wonderfully supportive of me during my time in public service during campaigns. But you're right that this is something on another level. And it's important that if I'm gonna take that flying to all of us are prepared for that. And also, it makes sense for all of us. It just can't be me. You know, only be about me. So that's the conversation that we have. And let's talk Texas because I know there many of our core listeners and readers are are especially in the the Democrats, of course, are pulling for better Rourke in your your home state. He's raised thirty eight million dollars over the last three months, but he's still behind by nine points. Why is that? And people hate Ted Cruz on. I mean, even Republicans say they hate that. Chris. Fine. Well, you know, I'm gonna like I'm sure broken record and cliche, but I would take those with a grain of salt..
