"Uh, were just talking about guns. U. S. Army Special Operations Command announced today that The first female green Beret graduated from what's called the Q Course qualification cars. They're not releasing her name. They don't release men's names, and it released anyone's names. But the first female green Beret Yeah, question. What's it differently in a Ranger and green Beret Rangers are super duper. Infantry that jump out of an airplane land on you and disembowel you and then repel with your intestines. God attractive. They are they fight as a conventional platoon company, etcetera, But they're the best guys on the field. Special forces who was a Ranger, There's some bad access but special forces dudes and 18 or 19 year old Can be arranged private the guys in special forces. You know, there's language involved. They work in smaller teams to 12. They work on the other side of the world. But this a satellite phone on all that it's it's a tough, tough job. But I had a couple talks with a couple friends that are from the unit and are retired. And to a man, they said good for her. They didn't say cheese, just devaluing the whole day side doubt that they lowered the standards. Yeah, they said that the community demanded, just like when the first females went to Ranger school, they said, this tab means nothing on us if you lower the standards and also the females or the ones who said I don't want an asteroid. They're the most badass of all because no they want to. They want to fight and compete alongside the fellas. So many things, he said. I don't want an asterisk. Everywhere I go. I don't want people say, Well, it's not a real ranger, too. Andi and all that's not like certain fire departments that only require female applicants to say do 20. She is. She's the ultimate, Karen. The theme of anything is racist. I stopped seeing Karen. Even though I called the Mayor Karen Garcetti was such a care. I know, but but it you know, because it means white female. I don't get how in the age of Of the reset on race and all that that people are throwing a racist majority of around. I don't have been anyone Stars show Jordan left. There's so few people we can make fun of. Well, let's I think we can all agree we can. Everyone at some point in their life is a Karen. Whether you like it or not, You know what unites all races that we all make fun of fat people. Used to be able to, But now that size is what early denounced? Yeah, Eso mail in balloting is going to be Ah, big deal, But the president today was all over. Twitter this morning about mail in balloting, and he's afraid of it. Always afraid he's gonna lose California. You know, that's like of all the places you don't need to chic, and Joe Biden is still talking about Kamala Harris. I mean, First of all, she's awful, but second of all, she's not going to help him. No, he's already gonna win California. I hate to spoil the ending the people who are most vulnerable toe trip in Biden's way our suburban Housewives and when, When Commonly, Harris's history catches up, whether they're going to run from her they should on DH. She sounds like Wanda Sykes here. You know what the deal is. We're talking about mail in balloting. I'll tell youse on there. My mom had multiple sclerosis. She was in a hospital bed for 25 years in column. County, Washington, She had to apply to be a male on voter, the county registrar. Came to our house and administered an oath to her for her to be. He had to come out and see if you get a vaginal gun, Tio. Yeah, right. Well, you want a gun that we're getting a wetsuit again? What movie's that from? We break No, the rock and so wish that was in point guys, so he actually administered an oath. Sam and said, you know, all right. Are you faking it? Now? I have M s all right. Who would lie about that? And so That's how she got to be a mail in voters. Then Oregon is all mailing. I in 1998 I voted yes on that measure began. Here's why Oregon's mail in balloting makes more sense in California, Washington, Idaho in Oregon. The mail in balloting must be in on election day. Not postmarked. Yeah, I don't like that postmark. Yeah, I don't mind. I don't mind if you decide late. Yeah. I don't have a problem with that. What if you're gonna if you're gonna mail it in, but the only the only issue with that drop box in Oregon the drop boxes the lines around the block by midnight, but it had to be in. Actually, I don't have a problem with Dropbox, either. As long as it's secure. I do have faith in the Ah they call it the Oregon system. But I'm a big fan of the November surprise. I don't like when there's a big Shaka as the Australians College. Before right before election Day, because that really want to do a hand gesture because he said the shocker. I don't know what you're talking about. I don't know what I'm doing. But I know I agree with you. That's the other danger. Is if if you are not prepared to go to AA, you know if you do mail it in and then whatever the donkey pictures come out, you don't get a redo it. What if they? What if they produce a picture of Joe Biden in full Nazi regalia, Fondling the clavicles oven? Underage young woman. On November 6 years, saying that's a showstopper could be so although we could explain other Prince ery explosive finish that it that it was just a costume is not really a Nancy. But but know what organ does is great, the one the only silver lining But Oregon I mean about California is like Like we said, We know it's going to be blue. It's not gonna affect the national election. But what we had here a couple weeks ago. Was the county registrar D. Logan, who's a jobber from his from Washington state. He's come under fire because but dignified stalwarts like Duncan Hunter. Yeah, we're talking about. He got reelected, unreal, but Ah, no, that's that's For me. That's always been a problem is that you should have a result within 25 years of Election day. Here in L. A county. We've had some tax increases like measure triple age. We didn't have a result for three weeks, also known to the wrestling tax. Yeah, the except there's one that Ah The funds. We actually don't know where the money went, but it funds homeless. But does it does it really who's getting money? And what are they doing? Don't know. You know they do. They hire people for government jobs. They don't you could walk down. Western Avenue.

Could Kamala Harris Be Our Next Vice President?

"Comma harassment history in two thousand sixteen when she became California's. Email US senator in the first Jamaican and Indian ancestry in the crowd at twenty twenty presidential primaries, she competed against other Democratic candidates, including Joe Biden to brand herself as progressive prosecutor, the face criticism for supporting tough on crime policies bar campaign had high hopes in a robust start internal conflicts poor decision making in fundraising. Plummeted her stock almost as quickly as it rose. I cannot tell you. That I have a path forward. If I don't believe I do now here's is rumored to be a top contender as Joe Biden's running mate, but as a former prosecutor, the right person during this time to represent black. America here to help us break down. How Senator Harris stacks up his Aaron, Hanes the editor at large for the Nineteen News Organization. So much coming back is so good to see you again maybe back since we last hot. Obviously we are still in the middle of global pandemic, but also we have seen protests erupt all of the country and all of the world focus on police brutality against black people, considering the way that this has become front and center this Joe Biden now half to choose a black person, and by definition from his own proclamation, a black woman to be vp the cause for that or definitely getting louder as we're seeing kind of what I like to call the pandemic within a pandemic kind of the dual ills of Corona virus and racism. What voters and I think in particular black voters and black women voters are the backbone of Democratic Party are looking for somebody who's going to be ready on day one to address systemic racism in America, right, a lot of black voters have talk to tell me that they are casting a survival vote in two thousand, twenty, literally putting their bodies on the line in the midst of a pandemic to be able to vote and participate safely our democracy and I think. A lot of people feel like a black woman on the ticket would go a long way. To making that happen today we're here to talk about one black woman in particular commonly Harris I'm curious like what makes Senator Harris. A contender for being Joe Biden's VP from the time that she entered the twenty twenty Democratic field last year is the lone black woman. She was a standout. People have seen her as somebody who has taken on this administration as a senator. Inches, talk we. Didn't keep note some of these things. Brian this committee with the notes that you did maintain. She is somebody who has been elected statewide, and who has executive leadership experience the thing that we can't ignore when we're talking about senator hairs is that she built her career by being a prosecutor does her history and even some of the positions that she's taken as a prosecutor? Does that disqualify her? In this moment I think it's interesting I mean it was certainly an issue for her during her presidential run right like she ran and really was trying to tell what she. She felt was her record as a progressive prosecutor. Right as somebody who was willing to make a lot of performs even preceding the black lives matter movement I created as Attorney General, the first in the nation, implicit bias and procedural justice training for law enforcement, but there were voters indeed question per record and law enforcement, and saw that as a liability, but now that I think we're getting into this vice presidential conversation Kamala. Harris it's actually being one of the most outspoken people are calling for the need to address not only system racism. Policing reform in particular while she and vice president, Biden may have some answering to do for for their past records Both of them are really trying to articulate a way forward in a ticket that could potentially look at kind of appearance, some of those harms in addition to criminal justice reform. What are the other issues that she is trying to lead on issue of maternal health writer, maternal morbidity, and we know that black women that disproportionately in childbirth, also some of the other systemic issues that have been exposed whether it is the wealth an income gap whether it's the idea that that black and Brown people are the majority of essential workers are really being voice for those. Those marginalized people during the campaign Senator Harris in one of her best, if not her best debate performance came for Joe Biden, she directly challenged him being racially insensitive for his record on blessing to you agree today that you were wrong to oppose busing. In America this was a significant moment. I'm curious. How will she and potentially the public be able to reconcile how much she critiqued his candidacy today now stand beside him at the time. A lot of Democrats were very shocked that she would gone at at the vice president in this way over the issue of bussing and and segregation. In retrospect. What we now see is that what comal hair was doing it alone black woman? In the race was was raising questions about his record on ways and how he will govern. The black people in mind that racial reckoning that is happening now. She really kind of initiated that on that debate stage back in June of last.

"I wanted to turn to basically something more current, which is anti. Asian and anti-black sentiment you know recently there's been a lot of incidents of racism to talk about a lot of complicated conversations. According to the Stop, a API hate tracker there have been. Already seventeen hundred reported incidents of anti Asian hate crimes during the pandemic, and at the same time, the black community is hurting anew with the names of a Marbury beyond a Taylor George Floyd. How do you think government can address this stuff? First and foremost. Leaders have to speak truth about the fact that racism is real in America and has always been. And so it may be uncomfortable for people to speak much less here, but we can't ever get on the path of healing. If we don't speak that truth and these various incidents. Hate crime is not new against the community against black people in America against LGBTQ people, it's not new in fact as Attorney General California. One of my many responsibilities was to publish the hate. Crimes Report on a regular basis, the the anti-semitism. This stuff is not new in America. What is what is tragic is that it's not ending. It's not in we're and we're seeing a resurgence, and we see every so often, and so, what must the government do? Will leaders in the government wanted to speak the truth about it? And then there a number of things that we have to do it is certainly when we're talking about hate crime, and I say this perhaps is a former prosecutor who has prosecuted hate crime. There needs to be serious investigation of these cases meaning that when someone reports it, they must be taken seriously. They must be given dignity through the process, and then there must be serious investigation. These crimes and accountability and consequence and nat point is is more than a notion, because if someone who is an immigrant, if someone who speaks English with a heavy accent walks into a police department. It is a legitimate question to ask. Will they be taken seriously? Will they be treated with dignity? So these are real issues that have to be confronted in the overall process that means about training law enforcement that means about training prosecutors about the significance of hate crime. It means doing the outreach with communities that are reluctant to report it because they believe one, it is natural. It keeps happening and happened to their friends and happen to their cousins, and happened to their aunties and uncles, and it just happens. To. They may feel that if they reported. Nothing will happen in three for some many Asian cultures. It's not supposed to be about you, and so people feel that they have to subordinate some times what has been a personal affront for the sake of the community, and what might result in bringing law, enforcement and government into the community for the purposes of an investigation, so that has to be about training of. Of Law enforcement has to outreach to communities where communities have the ability to report these things in a way that they will be treated with dignity. There is the work that needs to be done about speaking about America's history on race. You know we know that the Chinese Americans built help build California into what it is built the railroads, but yet on the books on the long were forbidden own property. You can look at Japanese interment. We can go on and on down the list right and so there's the piece of it also has to be about education and reminding. Our Country of where we've been recently on a lot of these issues, and in so these are some of the things that I think about and then the last piece, which is equally important as anything else. We need equal representation among people who are in positions of power so that they will understand they will reflect the diversity of who we are as a country, and they will also speak. To the issue, but it should not be incumbent on just a an API elected official to do the work of speaking out against these injustices but I will tell you guys I mean on that point in terms of what's happening in the Senate what's happening around some of the stuff you know Congresswoman Mang and I have a resolution that is about denouncing Asian. Anti Asian sentiment caused by the coronavirus amazing Hirano, the senator from Hawaii, and and and Tammy Duckworth from Illinois. We have a full resolution that's condemning Asian crime and in terms of Asian. anti-asian hate crime, and and basically calling on public officials to denounce racism and xenophobia and anti Asian sentiment but we also need to push that all leaders speak out against us in that is just not on the shoulders of those of us who come from these communities to speak about it. Well that's exactly right and I think for us, too. You know along that thought comes the of interrogating one's own community about racism. You know the anti blackness within the Asian American community for example leading to hopefully a more uniform solidarity more unity across communities. But we could talk to you for hours about all of this stuff but we wanted to squeeze in before we go are bad Asian confession segment in which we share time or an experience and Franken I've shared so many of these where something had made feel like a bad Asian. We do this so that we can all impact it together. It's like a it's like a group Hug. It's like group therapy. We wanted to know what is one of yours senator. Oh! Okay, Well one is I didn't realize that it was more than something my mother did. Like for my entire life up until last year I didn't realize that it was apparently a thing to put Indian spices in tasters. Choice Coffee Jars. We had a whole spice cabinet full because she would drink. Taste destroys coffee which was. Basically spoon out with the Cup pour hot water? And she would have that every morning literally. Don't talk to mommy until she's had her coffee and it was tasteless. Choice coffee well if you looked in the spice cabinet. Like big things of tumor, big things of human big things with muster receive all in tasters. Choice containers. These glass containers with this twist top. And then I was with on a pretty a very well known actor and comedian, and we were cooking together. We were making those together, and she pulls out this vice. This and they were all in tasters. Choice containers. And she and I had the biggest laugh because she didn't know either that this apparently thing among I guess the in her parents are father and my mother were into the same generation. That's one I. Guess the other one. It's a very. I've never confessed this, but we would always challenge members of my so. Indians cannot pronounce doubly. We would sometimes challenge like my grandmother pronounced. That's awful and I'm sure we're the only bad. I am so sure you are not. Just said that I've never said that out loud..

"I wanted to turn to a back to sort of talking about you know Biracial -ality and especially as a presidential candidate. You know it felt like people encourage you, or there's pressure to choose a side you know black or Indian, American, and at one point you're asked directly in an interview at one point to say, indian-american are African American. which you know doesn't really jive with my understanding of my biracial friends identity, and what you said it was I'm a proud American in response to this question you know. How do you feel about the way? Our political environment handles biracial identity, and do you feel pressured to pick a side and does that reflect your life experience? Well I mean I have to tell you rancor honestly I. I don't even think we're that sophisticated yet I think that you just have to ask. How does America handle race? Much less what it means to be biracial. Like literally when you're talking about running for office, and you can ask any one of us who was one of the first of our kind to run based on gender or race, and you will know that it can be a challenge because. People. They're more comfortable on I guess. It's easier to place a candidate in a box that you already have defined. And based on your exposure and your your knowledge, right and your experiences. And so the challenge becomes then when you don't fit in someone's preconceived notion of who is president of the United States because they're only reference, point is who has been president of the United States, and not one of those people looks like you. It presents a challenge <hes> which is that. You are probably more required more than others that are familiar. You're required to explain things about yourself that otherwise you may not be required to explain. And that that can be challenging for a number of reasons including because. At that moment, you might prefer that. The interview was about your plan for the economy. But you're trying to help. People figure out who you are, even though you're really comfortable in your own skin. Well I think to that point conversations like these I think, do help people figure out you know as they relate to their own experiences in ways that are not widely talked about so I'm curious along along those lines. How have you dealt whether they're coping tools or learned skills or or sources of strength in your life? Have you dealt with this? External interrogation of your identity and how people use it to judge things like electability. Yeah so wonderful question <hes> you know I was raised with a deep sense of pride. In my cultural background. Like I've never really had. Mean this not as indictment of anyone, but just speaking about myself. As much as I don't like to do, but. I've never had an identity crisis. And it, just I haven't I haven't. I'm really comfortable in who I am I grew up in a family and extended family. Who was you? We like literally. I didn't go through some evolution. About who am I. What is my identity? I guess the frustration I have is if people think that I should have gone through such a crisis and need to explain it, but I didn't I you know. I grew up. In a community where <hes> and maybe it's because also being from the bay area and growing up in the bay area, and there was such a cultural mix of people on in the community in which I was raised, there was an understanding and appreciation. For that that it it just wasn't an issue for me, and but you're right, then being a candidate and going out in the world and being a candidate for public office does mean explaining who you are, then it requires a little bit more exploration to to help people figure it out, but it's not as though it was kind of an evolving consciousness for me. Thank you so much for sharing that and and I think like from what I understand about biracial added entity you know it involves a lot of tackling back and forth, and choosing between them is like choosing between your mom and dad, which you know, no sonner daughters really able to do.

You know it felt like people encourage you, or there's pressure to choose a side you know black or Indian, American, and at one point you're asked directly in an interview at one point to say, indian-american are African American. which you know doesn't really jive with my understanding of my biracial friends identity, and what you said it was I'm a proud American in response to this question you know. How do you feel about the way? Our political environment handles biracial identity, and do you feel pressured to pick a side and does that reflect your life experience? Well I mean I have to tell you rancor honestly I. I don't even think we're that sophisticated yet I think that you just have to ask. How does America handle race? Much less what it means to be biracial. Like literally when you're talking about running for office, and you can ask any one of us who was one of the first of our kind to run based on gender or race, and you will know that it can be a challenge because. People. They're more comfortable on I guess. It's easier to place a candidate in a box that you already have defined. And based on your exposure and your your knowledge, right and your experiences. And so the challenge becomes then when you don't fit in someone's preconceived notion of who is president of the United States because they're only reference, point is who has been president of the United States, and not one of those people looks like you. It presents a challenge which is that. You are probably more required more than others that are familiar. You're required to explain things about yourself that otherwise you may not be required to explain. And that that can be challenging for a number of reasons including because. At that moment, you might prefer that. The interview was about your plan for the economy. But you're trying to help. People figure out who you are, even though you're really comfortable in your own skin. Well I think to that point conversations like these I think, do help people figure out you know as they relate to their own experiences in ways that are not widely talked about so I'm curious along along those lines. How have you dealt whether they're coping tools or learned skills or or sources of strength in your life? Have you dealt with this? External interrogation of your identity and how people use it to judge things like electability. Yeah so wonderful question you know I was raised with a deep sense of pride. In my cultural background. Like I've never really had. Mean this not as indictment of anyone, but just speaking about myself. As much as I don't like to do, but. I've never had an identity crisis. And it, just I haven't I haven't. I'm really comfortable in who I am I grew up in a family and extended family. Who was you? We like literally. I didn't go through some evolution. About who am I. What is my identity? I guess the frustration I have is if people think that I should have gone through such a crisis and need to explain it, but I didn't I you know. I grew up. In a community where and maybe it's because also being from the bay area and growing up in the bay area, and there was such a cultural mix of people on in the community in which I was raised, there was an understanding and appreciation. For that that it it just wasn't an issue for me, and but you're right, then being a candidate and going out in the world and being a candidate for public office does mean explaining who you are, then it requires a little bit more exploration to to help people figure it out, but it's not as though it was kind of an evolving consciousness for me. Thank you so much for sharing that and and I think like from what I understand about biracial added entity you know it involves a lot of tackling back and forth, and choosing between them is like choosing between your mom and dad, which you know, no sonner daughters really able to do.

Fresh update on "kamala harris" discussed on Pod Save America

"Biden to have lunch once a week together, and when you think about it, no matter who you are. If you don't pick your best friend, I mean obviously if I ran for president, you would be vice president and you know, but we have known each other for so many years I fundamentally understand our relationship and your decision making style, and so the idea between the two of them, having lunch was one building that relationship, coming to understand each other, and also being able to I think especially for Biden, gave his sort of unvarnished feedback, not in front of a room full of cabinet secretaries. Here's my question about this much if you do the answer which is. Brock Obama. Brock seven almonds. is a very very healthy. Boring. Like he'd salmon like for lunch like six days, yeah. Do, you think he made by needs. Six as a week or two binding gets off the menu, so I think by and got off the menu. Because unless it was like a big group lunch usually because i. do think poets was somewhat aware of his eating intricacies. That I believe I'm going to say that by ordered off the menu. Though because he was such a good partner, he may have always just said have what the president's having. By his been described as I think accurately as the most influential inconsequential vice president American history. And that is unusual right? The vice presidency traditionally has been. A ceremonial position in some cases John Nance Garner, who was one of FDR's vice presidents once described the. Vice Presidency as worth a warm bucket of Piss, which I always thought that that what was worn bucket of so what it was, but I've learned through the very excellent research skills of our producer in waller that the press he actually Garner actually said pests, but the press cleaned it up to spit to make life easier for Garner and because I. Don't think you probably couldn't get pissed in the newspaper by. a literal example of fake news. One thing that was interesting about the Biden Obama Goshi since we've since learned is that Biden wanted. To be in charge of somethings who obviously hated all the ceremony, all stuff that vice presidents do their sort of famous for being sent to funerals for second and third year world leaders, they often are. The president can't do something. They'll send the vice president, and so he did all those things obviously and did it gladly. He spent a Lotta time. Campaigning and doing other things when he wasn't an office, but he was tasked with very specific projects that he oversaw right, he came in, and because of his experience in the Senate really handled passing a lot of our legislative agenda through the Senate and handle negotiations with Republicans. He was in charge of Iraq policy right. He was spearheading. That is we were figuring out how we're GONNA wind down the effort, Iraq he was in charge of the Recovery Act right the stimulus bill to help get us out of that and. My assumption is that Biden is looking for someone who can do that. Right who we can say and he says in some of these quotes to the presidency is too big for one person, so you need someone who can take on real things and dry them, and so the question is you think about while which of these candidates? Will. He pick depends on which which we don't answer do is which things does he wanna be able to hand off the someone else right bike much like? Obama the economic cover after Biden if Biden wanted to do that then like you see Elizabeth Warren as someone who's worked comic policy if He wants to hand off foreign policy. We Susan Rice could be any range of issues including the economy with Kamala Harris. You sort of go on down the line like the third factor that is looked at is politics now. I think based on that quote. We heard from by earlier. That is the thing I think he's going to consider least right in the more he goes up in the polls I think politics as a factor may diminish more, but the political factor. You know this is a campaign, and you can't any other things, right? You can't have much with this person every weekday of office you can't Assign them projects until you wins. Winning remains part of the conversation and. There are a number of ways in which the politics of this are considered right. We will of EP nominee. Hopefully carry a state of the state will the VP nominee has taken gain support from specific constituencies. How would they handle the debate? So let's start with the first one right in the traditional way. You think about this and it's talked about they say. Bind should pick this person because they will help. Deliver this state, which will get you closer to seventy Ellis, any evidence that supporting the idea that VP selection helps with winning in their home state, and this was part of the Calculus for John Kerry. would. He picked on Emerson. You're working on that process. And that correct. It was and when I was thinking about this i. always like to think like what's my first reaction to a question when I ask myself the question, and my my response to myself was met I asked if states matter John Kerry, like most of his finalists in two, thousand and four were from. Battleground or soon to be battleground states, there was a lot of talk about whether John Kerry back in two thousand and four. The idea of writing off the south I'm putting that in quotes was still a thing, and so the appeal of John Edwards was one that by picking a southerner. From North Carolina. WHO had working class appeal? It wouldn't seem as though he was going to write off the south, and also there was this allure that perhaps. John Edwards could help carry win. North Carolina. John Kerry loss North Carolina by fifteen points. So I. Don't think that there's real if you go through history I don't think there's any example of. They're really being someone who is picked. And put the candidate over the top in a state where they weren't within a couple points or any points at all. I mean this is such a hard thing to judge, because it's such a small sample size, right? We've had so few presidential elections, and only some subset of US presidential elections vice presidential candidate from swing state that could possibly move in then. How do you decouple that? From the other larger factors like for example in two thousand eight Brock Obama Wisconsin by around fifteen points in two thousand, Twelve Romney put your friend and Mine Wisconsin Hi Paul Ryan on the ticket, and although he still lost. Lost Wisconsin lawsuit by about half the margin that Obama won the state by in two thousand eight. You might look at that and say while Paul Ryan is must be super popular in Wisconsin. And therefore he helped move the state, but then in two thousand Sixteen Donald Trump on this day St, Paul. Ryan was nowhere to be seen and so Paul Ryan probably was had almost no effect on that is more in what was going on. There was more about the partisans shift of that state. Over time now putting aside states because if you look at the People Biden is considering right. You have Tammy Baldwin. who was from a swing state? You have Stacey Abrams in Kyushu bottoms who are from Georgia which is a potential swing state CCN was obviously even though she did not become governor has got more votes in Georgia than any Democrat in history, including Barack Obama in her two thousand eighteen gubernatorial race, which was stolen from her by Brian Kemp. Back, Guy Yes. Yes but everyone you know Elizabeth Warren is not by GONNA. Find, Massachusetts Val demings. You know maybe that's impactful in Florida, but not super well known with statewide. Let alone nationally, but there is a question about whether this person can help performance with a certain group. Do you think that's something by no consider in particularly against the backdrop of the conversation? We're having in this country of the last couple months about structural racism. I, think it definitely plays into the conversations that they're having within the Biden team, and then with candidates as they talk to them, but even still if you look back to the beginning, I mean, and by the beginning I mean the nine Hundred Eighty S. Geraldine Ferraro first woman on the Democratic ticket. We lost women by a lot. Hillary Clinton put spanish-speaking Tim Kaine on the tickets she did less well with Latinos than Barack Obama did so I think that you have to put everything in its place? I do think that all of the things that are happening in the world right now are very relevant to the conversations they're having, but at the end of the day the world has to believe the ticket right when they come out on stage or wherever the fuck they are. People have to be like I. Get it because the their chemistry like make sense, and you can see it and I think that that gives people competence that they're going to be a team, and so it's like if you go back, you know all of Romney's advisers told him to pick Portman because there was actually a chance of gaining the two or three points in Ohio with Portman to have you know one him the state and he was like you know what, though if I have lunch with someone I want it to be Paul, Ryan and I do think though that he didn't mean, but it was. I'm sorry, sorry. That is right there disqualifying. If you if you believe that you want to have lunch with Paul? Ryan God I thought you meant I was disqualified..

Kamala Harris advances as top contender for Biden's Vice President

"Kamala Harris ran for president of the United States she barely made an impression on American voters and because of that she ended up leaving the race relatively early but she may get back in if she becomes the vice presidential candidate Joe Biden now you've heard me tell you that I don't care what the polls are saying right now I mean the polls said that Hillary Clinton was going to be a major winner in twenty sixteen and they turned out to be terribly wrong well but the polls are saying the Joe Biden has a chance to win the presidency of course nothing is certain until the day after election day but Kamal Harris senator from California who is now they say the front runner to be Joe Biden's run image that's the one I cannot figure out she has some major problems her history as Attorney General in California is incredibly problematic especially for Joe Biden Joe Biden is getting confused about just about everything these days I mean if I started running every sound bite that show Joe Biden is confused about where he is and what he's talking about today he got into a Juneteenth controversy because he he thought he would go after Donald Trump saying will Donald trump's going to hold a rally on Juneteenth accepted turned out that the Donald Trump is doing no such thing it was just Joe Biden being more than a little bit confused and half the time half the time what is it appears in front of cameras you would think like I try to do I try to be at my best when I appear in front of you on a microphone I can't afford to be fumbling and bumbling and mumbling but that's exactly what Joe Biden is doing Kamali Harris has a different problem she has to try to figure out how to triangulate a position for herself that is somewhere slightly to the left but not too far to the left and she wants to straddle that divide the way it's being put the death of George Floyd in subsequent calls from progressives to de fund the police have put Harris who's a former prosecutor in a really tough position how she handles the issue of George Floyd over the next several weeks could determine whether or not Joe Biden decides to make her part of that twenty twenty presidential ticket Paris has been asked repeatedly in recent days whether she supports de funding the police well she's a former prosecutor she has responded by trying to clarify what police de funding means I'm not sure there is a universal answer

S. A. today called the New York times called the U. S. the Wall Street journal he calls these newspapers in his eyes got here you bought it I'm I'm I'm ending the world there are twenty four hours that's over so the New York times headline god says world to end tomorrow women and minorities hardest hit I mean it was so print that's the joke USA today headline as we're done Wall Street journal god says world M. tomorrow markets are close early that that's how the joke goes well guess what I've been waiting for the color of the virus I have been waiting for the racial component silently silently awaiting the racial come and lo and behold ladies and gentlemen we now have the racial component Washington post corona virus is infecting and killing black Americans at an alarmingly high rate so now we have a racial component to all of this which is just gonna con found the reporting so here's a summary in this is this is this is the way you're going to have to analyze this going forward the corona virus now ships are African Americans harder harder than illegal aliens harder than women it hits African Americans harder than anybody disproportionate representation so now here's the thing if you try if you dare criticize the mobilization to deal with this you're gonna be immediately tags are racist if you disagree without G. if you disagree with Burke's if you disagree with any of the so called experts advising us to know what you are going to be tagged a racist and this is how they shut people down this is how they they they stop criticism you B.

An insight into Kamala Harris, a potential VP for Biden

Cape Up with Jonathan Capehart

An insight into Kamala Harris, a potential VP for Biden

"I am Jonathan Kaye. Part AND WELCOME TO CAPE UP. Long before people started swooning over Congressman. Val demings of Florida as a possible vice president. Joe Biden folks. We're talking about senator. Kamla Harris California back in January twenty nineteen few weeks before Harris announced her own since disbanded presidential campaign. I sat with her in front of a live audience at George Washington University for the kickoff tour. For her the truth we hold because Harris's book is a memoir. Our conversation was heavy on stories about parents upbringing and her career. There's no better way to get to know this possible vice president than listening right now. Senator Harris thank you very much for for being here for choosing Washington to be the kickoff of your book tour and or actually to be correct books tour and as we see the truths we hold an American journey and then also superheroes are everywhere. I'm going to focus on the truths we hold k. And I'm going to focus on something that happens before even page one and I want to clear it up. Okay for anyone who might have done this or still doing this. Despite hearing it said correctly the first time pronounce your name Carmela so just think of like the punctuation Mark Comma and that Adalah and there you got and so then what does communism mean then. So it's a very traditional classic Indian name and it derives from Sanskrit and it's it means the lotus flower and so it's very prevalent and a lot of Asian cultures and the idea the symbolism. Is that the Lotus flowers sits on water but it never really gets wet. The water beats off of it and so the idea being that one can be in the midst of chaos or be in the midst of something happening and and be there and should be there and it doesn't necessarily need to penetrate you but one should be there and equally important Its roots are in the mud meaning. It is grounded and and one must always know where they come from and can still be this thing now. I need you to pronounce another name for me for the life of me. I just I couldn't do it. And that is the name of your mother Shammala. So the why is silent Shama Sharmila what was really Shamlan? Go Gopala tell us about your mom. Caller Mommy Mommy. We always called her. Mommy I am not embarrassed to say she is mommy and She is in many ways. The reason I wrote the book my sister my is here My Mother's one of her best friends from college is here. Lenore POMERANZ I write about in the book and my mother was a force of nature. A drill force of nature. She is someone who all five feet of her. If you met her after you walked away you would have thought she was seven Tom. My mother was a truth teller. She spoke the truth. She was probably the smartest toughest and most loving person I've ever known. She raised her daughters with a belief that we could do and be anything. She taught us that. Don't let people tell you who you are and you tell them who you are. She was a scientist. Breast cancer researcher should goals in her life to end breast cancer and raise her two daughters and she would take us to the lab with her at go after school on the weekends and being around scientists one of the things that I realize now early in my life I learned was that one should see what can be unburdened by what has been because that is science is about. It's the pursuit of those things that will improve the condition of life. That will solve problems. That will make things better. And that's why I'm naturally attracted to also anything that is about innovation understanding that innovation. We do it not because we're bored with things the way they've been but because we should always be in pursuit of being more efficient more effective more relevant and and that's what she is and was your father. Donald Harris also an immigrant born born in Jamaica. Yeah an economics professor at Stanford. And let's David. Mind comes from some BRAINIAC parents. Your mom got her. He H D. The year you were born does put that out there so now your dad comes to the United States from Jamaica. Yeah my father was equally brilliant. And is he was a national scholar and Jamaica. He earned his way and up in out and came to the United States into Berkeley to study economics and My parents met when they were active in the civil rights movement. And it's an interesting story because as you know my mother graduated college when she was nineteen and did and so she so she said to my grandfather who was one of the freedom fighters in India for India's independence and my mother was the eldest of four children. She was the oldest at at a girl obviously and she said to my grandparents. She wanted to study science and she wanted to go to what was considered to be one of the best schools and that was UC Berkeley and my grandparents looked at her and said okay. We will put you on a plane and you can go to a place. You've never been at nineteen years old. This was in nineteen fifty nine. So this young this girl. This young woman got on a plane encouraged by her parents to go and pursue her dream now. The back story is also that it was fully expected she would get that degree and go back and have a good arranged marriage but of course my mother having been raised and being who she was just naturally she when she got to Berkeley was immediately attracted to the civil rights movement. Why do you defend? That's where she met. My father was and but I want to say she met my father and decided to have a love marriage and a marriage based on love which I believe is the ultimate act of optimism. The the question that I interrupted. You're you're Satan with. Why do you think she was so attracted to the civil rights movement she was raised growing up? Would go back to India like every other year and And so I know the family from that that that raised her because they helped raise us and it was always about fighting for independence was about finding justice. It was about fighting to make sure that all people had a say in their future in their government an equal say and that was that was in her blood and of course that's what the civil rights movement was about and the free speech movement and and there are some funny stories. I was just sharing with something backstage. You know so I witness I right about in the book you know from my strollers. I view and there's a a funny family story about how some mothers marching with the extended family. I talk about like aunt Mary and Uncle Freddie and the book and she would tell the story about. How DO THEY MARTIN? And this is back when strollers didn't really have armrest seatbelts. Martin Away and you know shouting and and all of that and then I think Mongol Freddie a look down in the stroller which was empty followed up. My mother tells funny story like one day. She was fussing and and you know so much cuter when she would tell the story but she'd say so then she would look down at me and come on. What do you want? What do you want and I look back up in a said fleet on so glad that story. I wanted to hear you safe. We how I wanted to talk about your your father economics professor Stanford they meet atmospherically. Had you and my And you love going to the park and your mom would correct me. If I'm wrong would put limits on you in terms of how far you go. Whatever and your dad would say to you. Run RUN COM run. That's right he would say. Do not be afraid. Let her go let her go. Let her run. You run as fast as you. Can you run as far as you want and I believe that his whole purpose was to say. Do not be afraid and be

"I was good at it and one of the things that the good thing that you do. That speech and debate teaches you how to make an affirmative and negative argument with any. I think always a helpful thing. Whenever you're trying to understand an issue issue is to figure out the best case for and against it and then sort of like you can? That is one way you can arrive at truth. The downside is that and this is something you'll see with Ben Shapiro. One of the real easy ways to win is to just lie or twist the facts in a way that you know your opponent won't be ready to counter because all that matters is actually scoring points in the moment and objective truth truth has nothing to do with winning debate and it sort of similar to running for office where taking a stance that wins the argument is often better taking a stance that is the right thing. Which is why I get? I don't I don't I don't like bates per se like yeah. Yeah yeah all the candidates talk and argue their points but yeah especially debates between politicians who are Sou- doing specifically. It's like well. What do you actually believe? Oh I can actually look at a record of four. That slice people are more drawn to Bernie and to Warren. Yeah right if not sell manure the younger but why for one is the appeal of those two candidates. It's why an elderly wild the old haired socialist has become one of those popular politicians in the country for basically shouting numbers at people for the last six years. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah. Yeah he's after six years everybody is saying healthcare's of human right. Yes yes you say it over and over because you believe it then everyone else will catch on history. Books will love matter what happens career that is true. He's a lovable man. Happy Birthday whenever your birthday is burning Speaking of we talk about this a lot we're talking about Medicare for all on the show and because that's going to be a large part of the Alleged debate going forward. And it's definitely Debate topic amongst the candidates. It's for the Democratic primary And I think just sort of to color what we've been talking about in this history. Kamal Mall was one of the first people to come out in favor of Bernie Sanders Medicare for all plants. She ran an ad in August in two thousand eighteen. I was proud to be the first Senate Democrat to come out and support of Bernie Sanders Medicare for all bill It is absurd that we are the only major industrialized nation in the world. Not to guarantee healthcare to all people and your name if you agree. It's time for Medicare for all and that is true. She came out. There was a big press conference. You see all the different senators who support that and since then. She has slowly drifted away from that At a large donor fundraiser In the Hamptons of all places She was heard to have said She had not been comfortable with Bernie's plan okay and so that sort of has driven us to where she is. Now which is calling it medicare for all I will say it is is Better than like a Buddha judge okay medicare for all who wanted or Medicare if you sign that kind of thing. So she's not that far from it but it is a she. I think she would call it a middle ground attempt at at a Medicare plan that includes private insurance. It's still which I'm surprised that you changed your opinion prize. You Change Your opinion. I wonder if it's from Maybe donors from like like the Pharma Industry and things like that and just sort of that. Calculus codeine cody. This is not a conspiracy theory. PODCAST and your crackpot pot theories about money influencing politics are not welcome here okay. Good luck with podcast. audie bringing the dog from Frazier. We are bringing in the dog from frazier. This is the Frazier Castle Kate O.. Robert that Talk Talk Yes oh God Saudi Arabia the dog that they got the play. Play the dog after the first dog dot is probably well. I mean I heart does keep a witch doctor on staff back on something. I desperately need witchdoctor. Why don't we finish this episode inside if you're back on the pod we don't have to get into too much? It's just that the the the comparison of now to earlier it does seem like she sort of jumped on the bandwagon as it was very very popular and she wanted to be the first on there to sort of get those ads out early on and maybe get like an email like donor lists and get get sort of her name and the access and sort of build her brand up and then distanced herself look qualcomm private insurance really good. We don't lose that right So that's just something to think about thinking about after something to think about i. I love thinking I'm tired of it. I'm middle ground. I'm feeling Kamala about it. That was pretty interesting. We learned a lot today. It's yeah I went through like sort of an arc is I was reading about time as AG. Where like I? I started reading some of those advocate articles or positive. You know she did a lot of really good stuff. LGBT people that like was not common in that period. For someone in your position to do and I was like maybe maybe I got the shit wrong. Maybe being unfair to her and then like it's like this Parabola of hitting a certain point and then hitting the right articles like oh no no eh. We're a win. A roller coaster ride is digging through it. You're like okay. Oh -Kay that's also ah shit calculated and you're trying to do the middle ground and trying to please these people. The time is right and these people in the other times. Then you're going to have that journey and I guess that's also why going back to what I said at the beginning about her relationship with Willie Brown and the criticism she's received is like yeah again. She had to start. This was a politician and she's smart. She's maneuvered through this and you can't you can't take a you can't give credit to him for this year that she's I mean listen. Listen to her answer About the transgender prisons stuff young politician answering. Oh my God. Yeah Yes Sir were you. Were you drunk driving when you ran in to that family of elderly people walking down the street. We'll you know I think drunk driving a real problem and I think we need to look seriously both the societal and the personal emotional causes of such things. And I I really think we we have to treat it like the problem that it is now. Will you help me pull this his corpse out of the grill on my f one fifty before I roll ride along. I've got more Tequila. The drink thunderous applause. Take a serious look at the safety of cars. I'm not wrong if I didn't really question I feel like I guess so. If that was just a random them state radio okay. We've got to worry about cars. You're right yeah yeah. Mullah Harris PRO DRUNK DOC driving here stands last. Yeah and you're thinking of Beto Beto as he drunkenly escape escapee's album I really if if he changed his slogan to just Cowabunga. I'M GONNA be all in all he would trump with trump would have resigned. Congress unanimously to make him the president like Mitch McConnell like sits back you know what yes everything. You would've taken off his tie. Put it over before or we could do an episode on him. My family is yours. You are by now. I want to ask in a serious note. If beddoe had had thought drinking a beer on stage would have won him votes. What what sort of six back with me because I am I go back and forth between what kind of Burrito brought out one end is he would have picked like a super hipster or something like like like really niche? That he had been a beer guy about the other is he would have gone with like the most stereotypically blue-collar beer pasta rolled out with a Miller lite or something like that. Yeah one of the Water Beers. Yeah part of me thinks he might have done it with Texas beer and if he did like this is only. We're GONNA make sense to texts people. There's the right answer in the wrong answer if you roll it on stage with Texas the right answer is shiner. Bock in the wrong answer is Lone Star and I'm certain he would have done alone star. I am not from Texas and I agree with you. Also yeah cert- as someone who has vomited up his body weight in both of those beers he would have he would have he would've rolled out with the lone star and he would have been wrong to do it. And this is my stance for the fourteen people from Texas listening right. They knew what attracted open. How're Berga didn't even Sarah? Yeah right you can't even do that right. I all right off the rails real real. Well what about. This is the worst year ever but we can make it more tolerable.

"Affirmative stance on it where Kamal is still not really willing to answer that question so in two thousand and four As da San Francisco as you noted Katie. She refused to seek the death penalty for a man. Who Shot a COP Now this hurt her support with like police officers like really made it more difficult for her to get elected And so that that is a brave unpopular stance. You have to give her credit for that. That's fucking hard hard. Today is the DA. So you would think that that's just something that sort of runs through her whole career. This kind of vehement opposition to the death penalty eighteen but in two thousand fourteen well into her time in office as a G. She appealed a judge's decision that called California's death penalty system unconstitutional now Harris. Chris justified this and a lot of the same way. She justified her opposition to gender reassignment surgery for inmates. She said she was just advocating for her client client. This is what she says now she he also at the time though made the peculiar claim that this ban undermines important protections that our courts provide defendants. Maybe the people who might get executed now. It's worth noting that while she she. She argued essentially in favor of the death penalty because she says she had to. Because she was advocating for her client. She he did not as attorney. General always choose to reflectively reflexively represent a client when that clients stances were counter to her own beliefs as attorney general she declined to defend proposition. Eight which banned same sex marriage so clearly she was able to use her own discretion on other issues. So Ah that's that's really interesting to me so this is not a situation where she just had no choice. We'll right eighty choice trying to be easily moved brick in the wall and deciding when to actually do that and win to not do that well. It's also like whose approval is she cording. According with this decision I would say that prop eight is a more popular across the board in progressive circles post to versus you know the maybe the groups of people that she's been trying to win back over that she'd you know relationships offs. I think you absolutely if you WANNA look at it. As just sort of like a crass political move it makes sense that way because yeah okay if I don't back this death penalty thing That's going to piss off more cops and I need more police groups to to to back me in my reelection campaign but cops cops on the whole in California. Don't really care that much about gay rights. They're not they don't support Propagate more than the rest of the population does and if I if I support prop eight that will cost me more votes. So I'm going to oppose prop eight like that makes sense to me. And I don't think she took a stand for Trans people because she and uh I guess she was correct in this She didn't think That there were enough of them to matter. Electorally worth the fight. Political climate was such that people barely even understood what trans meant. And it wasn't something that it was a it it's an issue that could have been potentially harmful for her at the time. Yeah she just really seems to have been positioning herself. Straddling that line between progressive policies and also catering to this tough tough-on-crime trying to be a tough progressive trying to be progressive COM progressive COP. But it's also it's not trying to be a progressive COP or at least one way you could look at this is she's not like it looked this looks to me like she's she's an actual progressive cop and more she understands.

"If those same statistics had occurred in rich neighborhoods the alarms would ogun on off there would be alert all over the city but we were talking about black and Brown children. We were talking about poor children children and the the the crude reality of it is that the system did not expect much from those children and did not create a state of shock doc and it urgency around getting them in school everyday. Would you extend the program on a federal level or try to figure out ways to adjust your address truancy on a federal level the same way as president it would be really doing it through the Department of Education. I did it through the mechanisms I had because I wasn't run in the city. I wasn't running the county. I wasn't running. The state. Department of Education is more suited to handle choice issues. Yeah I do and I also think that I mean look. That's why when I was Attorney General. I created in the California Department of Justice Bureau Children's justice I when I because I realize there was nobody who is paying attention at a statewide level to children's issues as a general matter and holding the system accountable so I actually sued school districts around things like how they were disproportionately treating black and brown kids when I became attorney John. Because then I had a different front lever but the reality of it is that government is not being held accountable for how it is treating poor children. There's no accountability and it has to be when I became attorney. General I required I because I had the power to do it. Publish the truth is for every county in the state of California California State of forty million people and then all of a sudden newspaper started reporting about it and then the public started saying school district. What are you doing about. All these kids. Were not in school. I was talking about this issue. Nobody at that level was talking about it because I know where those children end up and I know I I don't WanNa be in a position of prosecuting a case and having that child end up in the criminal justice system when the system and failed that child from the beginning and it was about holding the system accountable. That's the entire purpose of it was about holding system account which we did in the last Democrat debate there. Was this astonishing at least I thought it was astonishing attack from Tulsi Gabbard on your record She talked about fifteen hundred marijuana convictions while you were. Ag that you blocked evidence they would have gotten Kevin Cooper off death row that you encourage prison-labour in labor for wildfires in wanted to extend the prisoner sentences in two thousand four you push to increase cash bail NIA. What do you say to those. You looked like okay. I don't even have time to deal with this year on a little bit more time but it was extraordinary because it actually not I don't even need to respond at will but there have been independent reviews of what she said that across the board found inaccuracies if not flat out lies live with the folks who are still tweeting about it might need to know what like what the facts are so from your vantage point. I mean we can listen first of all. There is no question that I've spent my entire career focusing on reforming the criminal justice system when you're talking about the marijuana cases as attorney general. I didn't prosecute marijuana cases. I did prosecute any cases the DA's did so. That's just a flat out lie. We did prosecute marijuana cases. I was running with the California Department of Justice. I was taking on the five big banks. United States bringing twenty billion dollars back to the homeowners of California. I was taking on pharmaceutical companies and big oil companies and prosecuting them when everybody else was shuttering in their boots about these these these powerful powerful special interests in the Kevin Cooper case when I found out what was going on there I made a demand demand in a request any demand that their DNA testing when I found out about that case because I've always been about saying that we need to testimony. Let me tell you when I became attorney California. There was this extensive backlog of rape kits that nobody everybody said Oh. There's nothing we can do about it. I got rid of that backlog in one year. 'cause I have always been about saying. We need the science to prove innocence or guilt but it has to be a priority so you know I. It was obviously a political attack. It was meant to distort my record because this is somebody who was running against me so for your transition to becoming the first black woman suitor from from the State of California and second only in the United States only you have had quite the job challenging members of Congress Congress who are trying to tell you that it's not your time or you're being disrespectful in committee hearings on in very much being on the voice of the people there we're you've also had a robust legislative agenda also taking on some of the things that you touting criminal justice platform. What are some of the highlights in some bills that you've introduced co-sponsor that you want folks to be aware of. Maybe even a signature achievement or one of your proudest moments than we don't have a lot. The time will there are a few one is the at I've been a leader in the United States Senate on what we need to do to get rid of the cash bail system in America America and why because I know the system inside and I know that we're talking about the issue of bail. The fact is that there are people sitting in jail every day in America for days weeks months even years waiting to go to trial simply because they can't afford to pay the money money to bail out whereas the person who's got the money is out fancy free waiting to go to trial so this is not only about criminal justice economic comic justice so knowing that it's about economic justice knowing that this is actually an issue that affects any in everybody in the criminal justice system based on their wells in addition to race. I've knocked on the door of a Republican senator by the name Rampal rampal and I agree on almost nothing but we ran this and we have a bill that is a bipartisan bill to reform the UH cash bail system in America and the thing about it is that when we when we got the bill together he said to me you know what common appalachia loves it 'cause those poor people in Appalachia no the same thing that the four people in Compton Orrin Oren Chicago anywhere else mel which is that this is about economic justice. I'm very proud of that bill. I mean one of the things that I'm actually very strongly about is what we need to do around securing our nation from foreign interference. I've got I'm on the Senate Intelligence Committee on Senate Homeland Security Committee so I have a bill. That's about improving the infrastructure of our election system why because Russia interfered in the election of the United States and you know what they did to to target the election. They tried to play on the issue of race. They tried to get people all fired up on the issue of race knowing that that's America's Achilles heel. There's work that I'm doing that. It's been leadership around what we need to do. Due to end the the black maternal mortality rate because black women are three to four times more likely to die in connection with childbirth than any other women in America so I'm a leader on that which is to say that at its core this is about racial bias in healthcare or delivery system which is that that black woman when she walks into that hospital that clinic or the doctor's office her concerns are not being taken seriously and we need to address us because it is having fatal consequences. I'm dealing with the issue as a leader on the issue of is one of the leaves on the issue of of of incarcerated women because in America today there are women who are being shackled during childbirth so there are a number of issues but there is there is a lot of good work to be done when you are in a position of power where you don't have to ask permission and you can actually make things happen and for me my whole goal back to just kind of being raised around the concept of self determination. Can you know get things done is about being in places where it's not about me giving a lovely speech. Schorr grand gesture but actually fixing the system and sometimes it means working against the current. Sometimes it means having the wind in your sails but I'm never going to stop fighting fighting. I am never gonNA stop hiding. I'm never GONNA stop rolling up my sleeves and getting into a system that might be messy dirty but if we're not bear it it will happen without this as a tweet of a moment for all those tweety thanks. I think in the reality of it is especially especially on social media people fall victim to the echo chamber that exists in there's not any due diligence on whether an article is real or fake can on whether you know. I think what Kapadia pages for example they have on their. Somebody decided that I'm a Haitian American lawyer great grandfather station. That's cool off our own. Haiti but that's not real life so the the point that I that I really WanNa lean into here. Is You have a whole record to hand on and just like every other human. Being politicians also evolve. was there an evolutionary moment for you. Yeah so it's interesting I was having a conversation with a bunch of leaders activists opinion leaders thought leaders in the criminal justice reform movement and they were asking me about where do I stand on independent investigations of police police departments and police shootings in particular place students and they said well. We're not clear about where you stand. 'cause you in the past said you don't believe in taking cases and so. Ooh But let me tell you about before so when I was district attorney I was in office after being elected less than one hundred days when there was a police officer who was killed in the line of duty now and I did not seek the death penalty. I'd also run on a form of not personally poses county. I've always been always made that very clear. People want to take my case for me because they wanted a death penalty. Charge Democrats ask in very high levels of authority and position one in my case taken from me. People tried to take my case for me and Mike was. You're not taking my case for me. I was elected. Everybody is clear about where I stand on an issue. I have used my discretion to determine what is right for this case. You're not taking.

It's like being on a freeway believing sleeping and why should somebody who has more money be able to be in a lane that moves quicker and with greater access than you know a working person who doesn't have the the kind of money to spend extra on elaine a specific lane ana freeway the argument for it is just bogus revenue and you could tax food and that sort of thing well the argument for ending into talent is is basically let the so-called free market have it's way but the free market doesn't necessarily represent a fair market and we have to understand the difference and this is the point about the role of government the role all of government should be to have some level of oversight and ability to regulate behaviors that might become abusive in a way that harms consumers humor's and i was attorney general california the largest state in the country forty million people for two terms one of my primary responsibilities was to fight for consumers humor's and so it ranged from always taking a position on net neutrality and in favor of that to fighting for homeowners against the five big banks. The united states to fighting against pharmaceutical companies is that we're trying to suppress what was happening around developing generic drugs. They're they're abuses will occur and we i have to acknowledge that and so we have to have rules in place that allow all people to have access to certain fundamental resources and net neutrality is one of those issues there has been a lot of discussion about voter turnout voter <hes> not so much voter turnout <hes> come on ron on.

Should we get rid of it. And if so where's the end do we have to get rid of all the colleges so the electoral college is different and separate issue than colleges and universities so that's not what that means if they should definitely so. We don't get rid of the ivy league for instance yeah cracked right. We stay should remain intact. Gotta electoral college.

I knew it and i felt that when you want to reform systems <hes> let's also think about being inside the system where we can have the power to reform it from the inside and so that was the choice i made and <hes> and i don't regret that choice because having been on the inside i was able to create reentry initiatives for low level offenders. I was able to say look <hes> children who are being prostituted should not be thought of as teenage prostitutes as we should think of them as sexually exploited you give them the safety and the and the support that they deserve.

I learn as much as the audience does sometimes more so that's good to know attorney general nothing to do with the military. Although i did speak out about how we wanna make sure that law enforcement is not militarized so they're your your own. It wasn't the worst question you've ever been. No okay worst like might be top ten. It was close and what is that mean for law enforcement militarize meaning that we don't want local law enforcement to be or conducted itself as a branch of the military we ah we'd do not and should not think of local law enforcement as being engaged in a war right local law enforcement has as its primary purpose making sure people are safe in a community and so that's part of it and so we wanna make sure that local law enforcement is not equipped with tools that are tools of war because that's not their function and should not be the perspective right with your legal expertise your knowledge extensive background. I want to ask you a question. Let's let's say one. A person kept hinting to someone who works.

"I'm just noble. And this is news and focus where we offer our insights into the global news stories that matter. The race for the US democratic presidential nominee is hotting up with a huge field of twenty three candidates all hoping to run against Donald Trump in twenty twenty Coney weavers focused in one of those candidates Kamala Harris and she talks to never hawk about how the campaign is shaping up. I've been a career as a prosecutor, I prosecuted banks, I've prosecuted big pharmaceutical companies who were preying on the most vulnerable in consumers. I prosecuted the big banks and for profit colleges who were defrauding homeowners and consumers. And I'm gonna tell you somebody else was defraud at the American people. Donald trump. So we need to prosecute the case, and I wanna tell you, as a rap sheet malevolence to make the case. Let's look at what happened. He promised healthcare. And then he tried to repel care where for millions of people, what's that caused healthcare fraud. He said he was for working people, then he passed a tax Bill benefiting the top one percent and the biggest corporations in this country that's tax fraud. He believes the president of Russia and a North Korean dictator over the word of the American intelligence community securities frost. And then he claims to be the best president, we've seen in a generation. Well, let's say let's call Barack Obama because that's identity fraud. We just had a clip from communist house, speaking to recent campaign valley in Iowa Courtney, I tell us why you chose to profile her in particular of all the potential democratic nominees. That's a good question. I think the reason I thought Harris was so interesting was because there's so many candidates that have really been on our radar for while Joe Biden as run for president twice before Bernie Sanders has run once before, and there was this warrant, even though, this is her first campaign, we've heard a lot about her during the financial crisis. Whereas Kamala Harris, I think people know who she has maybe, maybe no little bit about her background that she was attorney general, California. But I think a lot of people I have spoken to here in DC. And then around the US, they didn't really have a sense of her at who she was as a person her background and her ideology. And so that's why I was gonna fast to learn more about her and kind of see what she stood for. So she was attorney general of California. What was she doing before? That was about ground. Then says she grew up in Oakland, which is right outside San Francisco. And after. Graduating from law school. She was working in the district attorney's office there and she launched this kind of underdog campaign to be district. Attorney of San Francisco when she was in her thirties. And she was running against too much better known competitors. No one thought she had a chance. She was pulling in the single digits at the beginning of her race and against all the odds, she managed to beat them. She ended up run off with one, and then she unseated the incumbent, and this propelled, her into talk of being, you know, future attorney general of California, which she was, and then Senator, California and kind of launch us remark low rise for her in a short time. She has done a good job as district attorney and attorney general Senator at the time and San Francisco, I think record is very well, regarded, it's kind of an interesting story, so she was running again against a better known white male, Republican opponent and people thought at the time, you know how can a progressive, you know, she calls herself a progressive. How can you know, liberal San Francisco district attorney beat him in a runoff in California, which. Typically tends to pick a Republican attorney generals, and she did. But now, she's in this interesting position where, you know, at her attorney general race. She was criticized for being too liberal not tough enough. And now during the democratic primary, she's getting it from the other end of the stick, and people are saying, well, you know, she calls herself a progressive prosecutor, but looking back at a record, there are other things that she could have done for criminal Justice reform that she didn't do, so she's got you could Susan the how you doing overall? Would you say out of the twenty three candidates he at twenty three? So she had this huge impressive, launch in January, the campaign estimates that there were more than twenty thousand people at heraldic Oakland, which was just huge. She raised a very impressive amount of money in the first twenty four hours. And then in the first quarter, she did pretty well fundraising, what's as well. And since then, her name is gift out of the two thousand twenty narrative people like Biden, or Bernie Sanders or people to judge who's the mayor of south bend, Indiana, who had this meteoric rise in the polls. And now Elizabeth Warren, as well. They seem to be sucking up more of the attention. And some people have been wondering why is she not doing better in the race? And and why isn't she getting that attention in the clip? She's talking about prosecution. Donald Trump is on reaching out to the democratic base will not boost chances. Do you think not kind of tough talk? Yeah. I think there's a lot of people in the democratic base right now who want to see impeachment proceedings began against Donald Trump, and who want the Democrats take further action. I think within the field of two thousand twenty candidates, she kind of went out on a limb on that. The others IP Buddha judge who said, you know, being president, your job is not to prosecute your political enemies, and some people are drawing comparisons between Trump's own two thousand sixteen campaign and the locker up slogan that his supporters, which hand against Hillary Clinton, and, and how badly that was taken by some on the left, but I do think there is a wide swath of the democratic primary electorate who do want to see action taken against Donald Trump, who do think that there should be obstruction of Justice charges brought against him. And you'll research for the article the written after weekend magazine you've met a lot of people who've actually worked with camera. What would I, I think my biggest takeaway is, you know, she is someone who does her homework? She doesn't like to make mistakes. She likes to be well prepared. They said she's not a fly by the seat of your pants politician that she likes to go into meetings feeling like she has control of the situation. I know some people in her current office when she does briefings she likes to do them in a very small number, because she doesn't want to be surrounded by all these people, and maybe say something that comes off, as ignorant her that she doesn't have control of the facts or the situation, and she's just kind of applied this diligence in this persistence to her career into everything that she's gone after they said that she has her eyes on the prize, and you see that now with for jumping from attorney general to Senator to presidential campaign. I'm always keen to avoid on scripted moment. So I'm knocking totally relate to that. But let's hey clip from one of the people you spoke to Jeff Adachi late. Some Francisco defender who often sparred, with how his when she was the city's district attorney has always been extremely.

"Ari and you're about to hear my full extended interview with presidential candidate and US Senator Kamla, harass you may have heard about or seen parts of it in the show. But now on the podcast because you guys have told us you like this. You get the whole darn thing. She talks about her new proposal to close the gender pay gap, why she thinks attorney general bar has bias and what that means and then we had a fun, lightning round conversation. She even reveals her perfect running mate clue. He's a boxer as well as her favorite album. And then if you are really into this, or you were searching around, and he ended up with us, or you're interested in comma, Harris, I can tell you that right after the interview I play her very first ever appearance on the beat. This was when she was a Senator. But before she ran for president, it might be kind of interesting because you know you go into the archive and you get a different version of her a quite relaxed, we talked about Buzi Collins and her playlist and all kinds of stuff. So I hope you enjoy one or both the interviews if you make it that far. And if you like what we're doing, please feel free to get with five stars. Or leave a comment on apple. I went in the other day. I read some of your comments. I even read the constructive criticism and I'll keep it all in mind as always, thanks for listening to the beat with Ari Melber podcast. Presidential candidate and US Senator Kamla Harris launching a new plan to close the gender wage gap. People are working the work in two and three jobs to put food on the table in our American, nobody should have to work more than one job to put food on the table and have a Roop of their there. And this proposals making headlines tonight for its get tough approach. Harris would force corporations to prove they're paying equally across genders or face public, shaming, and strict fines from the federal government. I'm joined now by twenty twenty candidates Senator Kamala Harris. Thank you. Thanks for being here. I'm -solutely high. Let's start with this. What does your plan due to combat the gender pay gap? Well, first of all, it is just a fact. Right. So the reality of it is that we don't have to debate the point, which is that on average women make eighty cents on the dollar to men. If you're talking about African American women at sixty one cents if it's Latinas it's fifty three cents. So there is an obvious issue that we have around, not only despair disparities, but fairness and equal pay for equal work. So let's get beyond that because it's not a debatable point. The question becomes, what are we going to do about it? And I think the goal we would all agree should be that. People should be paid equally for equal work. But we haven't yet reached that point, and we're going to have to create incentives to get there. So when I am proposing is that we shift the burden away from that working woman and instead onto that corporation to prove that they're paying people equally because here's the reality of it already every day in America. There are women who are, you know, hanging out at the water cooler with one of their colleagues who works in the Cuban cubicle, right next to them as the same work they're doing. And then they might start talking about what they got their kids for Christmas or you know what the new car is the new auction machine they bought and it becomes clear to that woman they're not getting paid the same amount. So then what does she do? She'll go to the supervisor are we getting paid the same amount. And the supervisor is likely to tell her we can't disclose salaries of other people. So then what is she supposed to do? Well, she can go and complain to the she can try and do her own work to investigate the salaries. She might you know, take it as far as litigation. To sue. But why should she and have the burden on her to figure out that she is not being paid name amount? It'd be the business of the leaders of these corporations big on that exact point because you call that the burden and this was something that President Obama was working with congress. Let's take a look at that when they pass a Ledbetter act. Yeah..

"Obama cannot be an anomaly. We must have someone at the party who is who was black. I here's how this is playing out. And I it actually has to be feeling sorry for. Kamala harris. Because she is being seen as not black enough. To be the top of the ticket. And this is from black Democrats. Now, you could say the same thing about Barack Obama. He went through the same black test. But here's the difference. Barack Obama whose father was from king. John whose mother was from from Kansas, and who grew up on the outskirts of society in Hawaii. Married. A black woman. A woman who the Democrats said had slave blood. A woman who was down for the struggle who experienced the struggle. So that innocence legitimize Barack Hussein Obama. But Kamala Harris. She's a. She's different because her mother is from like India and her father is from Jamaica. And her father went off on her for for playing into the stereotype that either all Jamaica smoke weed what he said that her grandmother turning over in their grave because of the way that she continues to perpetuate the stereotype. But with all of that and even though. Senator Harris self identifies as someone who is black Senator Harris went to historic black college. I believe she was part of sorority. Here's where she's in trouble. She's married to a white, man. She's being called out for not being black enough. To me is absolutely crazy. But this is a hurdle that Senator Kamala Harris is going to have to overcome. This term identity politics people will use that term. It's like people used to talk about the race car. Right. And they'll bring this term up when you talk about as soon as that are about race about sexual orientation about religion. They'll bring it up when we're talking about civil rights issues as a way to marginalize issue as a way to frankly, try to silence who set you up. We need to call that what it is which is to try and divert away from a conversation that needs to happen in America..

"Now this of course, was at the heart of the Bernie Sanders versus Hillary Clinton democratic nomination battle in 2016, obviously, Hillary Clinton won that battle went on to be the nominee. But it is amazing to think about that. Just two years. And three months after Hillary Clinton was on the ballot in November two thousand sixteen as the nominee of the Democratic Party that was just two years and three months ago and last night you heard one of the major contenders for the democratic nomination. Kamala Harris fully embrace Medicare for all not equivocate in any way, saying things and taking a policy position that just two years ago, the democratic nominee would not have dreamed of taking again just showing where the party has moved on this issue. But I want you to hear how comma Harris answered Jake's question at the town hall last night here Senator Harris. Well, listen, the idea is that everyone gets access to medical care, and you don't have to go through the process of going through an insurance company. Let's eliminate all of that. Let's move on. So just, you know, get rid of them. All now, Senator Harris, I should note. These should not be. A surprise to anyone that knows that she signed onto the Medicare for all Bill. This is exactly what Bernie Sanders. Bill does aid eliminates private insurance companies in the puts them out of business because the notion is that the government would be running healthcare. And now, I don't think there's like great popularity in America for health insurance companies almost everyone I know doesn't like interacting with their health insurance company, but this gets to the larger debate of a capitalist society versus a socialist society. And we've seen the numbers inside the Democratic Party about those who identify with socialist policies on the rise. But of course, it will surprise none of you that, you know, Republicans immediately jumped on this and said, you know, this is now going to help them portray Harris as a. California west coast liberal elite doesn't understand mainstream America because she says let's just get away. Get rid of all the insurance companies. They're going to try to make it, you know, seem radical in and out of the mainstream. It's not just Republicans though, who are taking this opera to the to take a swing at Harris as you may have heard Howard Schultz, the former CO Starbucks announced on sixty minutes this weekend that he is very much considering an independent bid for the presidency spending, his vast fortune or a portion of it to win the presidency as an independent now, he has called himself a lifelong democrat, and this is, of course, enraged, Democrats, and progressives because they think Schultz independent bid would inevitably split the anti-trump anti-incumbent vote in two thousand twenty and give Trump an actual path in an opening to reelection for a second term if indeed the anti-trump food get split but apart from that. Progressive democratic backlash to Schultz floating this idea, which by the way, he says he's a book tour. He's not going to decide this for three months, if he's going to do it or not, but Schultz also took the opportunity of what Harris said last night to differentiate himself and explain you know, why he's not running in the democratic primary. He thinks that party has moved to a place where we have to be for something like that. And he knows that those are not kiss views despite being a lifelong democrat here is how Schultz characterized his take on what Harris said last night. It just played Senator Harrison saying she wants to abolish the insurance industry. That's that's not correct. And that's not American. What's next? What industry are we going to abolish next the coughing industry? But the think we should get rid of the insurance industry again. This is exactly the situation. It's it's far to extremes on both sides. And the silent majority of America does not have a voice now Maeve rested. My colleagues CNN's national political reporter here..

"And the fact that I keep seeing a lot of white women a lot of unfortunately game white men in a lot of black straight men really rallying against Kamala Harris is really disappointing to me because it shows how I just feel like people are drawn to the negativity against black women, of course. Yeah. Yes. Yes. Absolutely. And I don't want to set like kind of reminds me of something similar thing. That's happening with another black woman, not someone thing. So there's a whole entire women's March controversy. That's also happening. Tell me about it. Okay. And so this one like I again, like I was really trying to hear all the facts before I was gonna lay down any sort of opinion or thought and so to make a mouse. Salary who's she's one of the original? She's one of the originators of the women's March that was happening. And so this year that women's March has had a lot of controversy into Mallory little backstory as she it's kind of like a protege of Al Sharpton, so she's been sort of in the political games. And she was like thirteen fifteen years old, and she's one of the she was like, she's one of the founders like the women's March. And I she last year she went to this founder's day thing where Louis Farrakhan was being recognized and honored and excuse me. She had had a picture with him and wrote that he was the goat which is just not meant greatest time with the kids. I ended up find out until all this controversy Zappin. And I, you know, I didn't know about this controversy Intel. I was watching the view, and she was on sea view. They are staying abreast of all the time and. This is he was on the view, and I was very spirited debate. And so essentially what happen is that? You know, she was being called the task for her comment that Louis Farrakhan is the greatest of all time, and because Louis Farrakhan, who is one of these part of the nation of Islam, and as a very radical member of the nation of Islam, if I can say, it has a lot of definitely say. He's got a lot of anti semitic stuff a lot of anti teased up. And so that is raising a lot of fives because for the women's March that is not they're very inclusive organization for equality amongst. You know, I mean, it took them some time, but they got right? And but at the same time like, I'm like, wow. This is exciting that you know, that there is a black woman who is a part of this, you know, leading this movement and whatnot. And so essentially, she was being taken a toss for other comments at apparently at her and some of the other some other women who think some other women who are part of the organization, we're maybe saying some antisemitic stuff. Yeah. But there was when the for the ordination was first starting which is also weird. When you're like, hey, let's all get together means something. Yeah. I'm gonna say some. Hey, right. Yeah. So and then, but you know, what I say like, I say, if you get a chance her interview on the view is very interesting because she'll say something, and I'll be like, ooh, okay. I see where you're coming from. But then Megan McCain will challenge her on something. I'd be okay. You know what I do? See what you're saying or sunny will challenger on something? Really? Oh, I do see that point to so many more. The sunny was challenging her as well. Like sunny was. Studies challenging them for making. Well, but, but but one of the things was like, why wouldn't I one thing that Megan McCain and said like why wouldn't to make a Mallory like denounce the comments of Louis Farrakhan? And she just won't go and Megan on that she wanted. But then it's so interesting this where it gets so interesting 'cause it's like I've moved like a ping pong ball a neck. Then I read this article on the route, and they were talking about it..
