Fresh update on "kamala harris" discussed on Memphis Morning News
"7 13, it is Alabama's Morning news. I'm JT Wells. We know the Senate formally now moving ahead with the debate on the big monster is expensive. Covered stimulus bill here in joining snot for the update. Michael Bowers here, Michael. Good morning. Good morning to you and happy Friday, JT. Yes, we're finally here. Come on, we can. Well, the house Needed. Kamala Harris is vote to break the tie to push it over to the Senate. But it's not just a one vote needed in the Senate. It's got to be how many I think they need what 10 Republican senators to Change their mind and inside with the Democrats on this thing, well, the way that this is gonna work out because they're using that reconciliation plan here, and that's why you've had things like the $15. Now our minimum wage or Nancy Pelosi's massive tunnel bill for the Bay Area have been removed because Senate parliamentarian said no, You can't really put that under reconciliation, so it's adjusted. A few things around the reconciliation would require just the simple majority 51 votes, but That means you have to have all 50 Democrats on your side if you want to push this thing through, and that's the question because we had heard that people like Kiersten cinema that people like Joe Manchin weren't necessarily on board when it came to things like the minimum wage, or they wanted to have a more targeted element of getting a stimulus checks out that now has also changed, JT. So now you're looking at the way the Senate has drafted this up. Is that Americans earning $75,000 or less will receive a $1400 payment. But things get sketchy between the $75,000.80,000 dollars a year. That's where the number starts to dip down and drop off. By the time you get to $80,000 a year of income, or 160,000 as a combined income source, you no longer qualify for any stimulus package. So That would mean at least close to 12. Million people that will have would have received stimulus checks before not getting them now, and that's got some people certainly frustrated and angry, especially with the delays that have gone on with this whole thing to begin with. And as you pointed out, Kamila Harris had to come into the Senate yesterday to break the 50 50 tied to get to the point where they could talk about this all which they finally did, but then You had the Let's read all 628 pages of this which took 11 hours. Ron Johnson pushing that to make sure the transparency of what was in the bill without there and ready to go. We're officially finished with that as of two o'clock this morning, But now we've got to get to the 20 hours of debate that are gonna happen on the floor for the reconciliation rules. Then you'll move forward into the vote A Rama, which is just vote after vote after vote after vote on issues within the legislation in regards to things that probably related to Cove in 19, but also Their contentious subject as well, once that's done. Yeah, exactly. Once that's done, you are going to have lawmakers cast a vote on the actual piece of legislation. If it's approved at that 51 votes, then it will go back to the house to be approved and rewritten because that's where they've got the disease. All the finalization on there. Then it will go to President Biden for his signature. So is far as the amount of votes needed in the Senate. I thought it was more than just you know the 51 that if you were doing it without the reconciliation, reconciliation, So let's say Bernie Sanders really wanted to get that minimum wage thing in there that would require the 60 votes, the super majority and that doesn't look like it was gonna happen. Well, there's so much pork in this thing, and it doesn't seem to me that there's gonna be Ah lot of it coming off, either. Um, do you agree with then? I guess the only other thing I think we know that we had that $1.5 million bridge like they were called the Schumer Bridge. The Chuck Schumer wanted to have built between New York and Canada. That's been dropped out of there. So some of the things that were kind of the you could easily put them into an infrastructure bill. Let's put it that way. Those things have been pulled out of this and are no longer part of it. So whether or not that opens the door to Joe mentions and Kirsten cinemas, voting or even any Republicans voting is yet to be seen. But at least it's a starting point for saying, you know, those were probably put in for simply negotiation tools. And now they have been removed when it comes time to writing this, bill. Yeah, it should never have been put in to begin with, right? 99% of the pork. That's added is his horse manure. So do do we anticipate a couple of Democrats? Joe Manchin, For instance, the West Virginia tol go along with this? It'll, it least be a fight on some level. I mean, so far from the things that looked like he was kind of standing up against the minimum wage, as when same thing with Pearson Center of the minimum wage, as well as targeting more of the money going to people for stimulus. Those two things look like they've been handled to a certain extent Now. Is that enough to get them on board with the rest of the package? We have to see if it is and Democrats will push this thing through getting Kamila Harris to come in. Probably guess probably. We're looking at maybe Monday morning early on throughout the day Monday with the delays that we've had it before. There's finally a vote on this thing, so it would be common Harris coming in for that vote on some level to break the tie that if you get both of them on board if you have one of them off or any other like, maybe even Bernie Sanders goes, I don't like this because there's no minimum wage in it. Then that could be a problem for Democrats. All right, Very good. Michael Bauer. Thank you Have a good weekend, but he will talk to you next week. It is 7 18. Alabama's Morning news on the way next Linda Neilan, who is with the National Center on the sexual exploitation to talk about the.
Kamala Harris breaks Senate tie to begin COVID-19 relief package debate
"Radio Senate formally moving ahead with the debate on the sweeping stimulus bill, but it was a close one. Michael Morning required a tiebreaker vote yet to have the vice president Kamila Harris, come in, just to get this thing underway to begin the process of debate there in the Senate, so she had to come in breaking 50 50 tired events The bill now the Senate is engaged in what I'll call a marathon effort. To take up President Biden's $1.9 Trillion pandemic relief bill expected to go through the weekend pretty easily here, a zoo chamber is is hearing the debate by hearing debate. I mean, they haven't even gotten to the debate part yet. I mean that they have spent the last 12 hours because Senator Ron Johnson pushed for all 628 pages of the legislation to be read out loud. On the grounds that there should be transparency and what's in it. Now it's not. Every senator has the right on either side of the aisle to make that request and to have things read out. As far as legislation goes, it just doesn't happen very often. And when it does, it's looked at largely as a delay tactic again. In this case, 628 pages of legislation buys I understood it took about 12 hours. It started around 3 20 yesterday afternoon and listen, it wasn't like every member of the Senate was glued to their seats to take notes on how this was all going to go down. In fact, as soon as the reading began, you saw Kamila Harris had to call for an order in the Senate because people were just hopping walking around, leaving. That's just the way this is. It's It's meant to be a delay tactic. But what is clear here is that they finished up that reading portion. It is about to begin the 20 hour debate session Now, that was just a time killer to get to the 20 hour debate session here, Tony, which is going to take place and this is where lawmakers are gonna have 20 hours under the reconciliation rules. To make the argument for what they have seen or heard in this Billa's far as the debate goes, then you're going to have the amendment voting session called Vote a Rama that usually will be about the serious of issues within that piece of legislation, but it could include, um any sort of vote on a contentious subject just literally back to back to back to back votes. That will last probably into the wee hours of the morning. And then when that's done, you have the final vote on this piece of legislation. And if it is approved in the Senate that will get sent back to the house, where the House will have to approve it, And then it could be sent to President Biden's desk for his signature. Well, you know, as well as I do that in this becomes partisan. That all bills are this bill the highway bill or it's the Cove in 19 Bill, or it's the stimulus package recovered 19 bill, but it does have a lot of other things in there. That to me personally Forget Democrat Republican. It's just frustrating that you can't get clean bills straight out just to help the American people with all the things we're gonna be tight. And so I understand. You know Ron Johnson and I'm not a big fan, but I'd like to find out more than lieutenant, I, You know, I don't people understood how bills get passed until Nancy Plus said. We've got to pass the bill, see what's in it, And that was kind of oi opening for a lot of Americans because you know they don't. They don't know the procedures a lot of time, and I think that that's part of the key to this is first of all available online. The bill's piece of legislation itself is they're all senators had a hard copy of it. So the reading it out loud was just moved to this sort of the late actor here, but the end of the day you're right. And with that there have been a lot of changes made they Hold out this massive amount of money to Nancy Pelosi was looking to get for transit system in San Francisco. This bridge to be built between New York and Canada, has been pulled out of the bill. The minimum wage portion of $15 an hour has been pulled out of the bill and also for moderate Democrats who were concerned about this. There's a streamlining here of who's going to get stimulus payments. Now, anybody earning $75,000 or less will still get their $1400 payment. But now there's a phase out faster that goes between 75,000 and $80,000 a year. So if you made $80,000 a year or couples making $1,660,000 a year. You're no longer qualifying for any stimulus, and that will affect around 11.8

Vice President Harris is the first woman and the first woman of color to win the vice presidency.
Fresh update on "kamala harris" discussed on The Young Turks
"The bills that don't hurt corporations are left and the was that help democrats so that's why it's not impossible for them to kill the football. They might do it and they might at that point. Pretend you know what we tried everything. Golly gee i guess we're gonna have to kill it and then at that. Point is our job to say. Hey then why. Don't you put all of hr one back. So all they would need is fifty one votes in order. Kill the filibuster correct. Yes yes right exactly. That's what i meant. So obviously kamala harris is going to be the tiebreaking vote I think that your prediction is near perfect. In fact i wrote down my notes. Not taking a bet against you on this one until you mentioned because i think you're right. I think they will strip the money and politics portion of it out And democrats do care about this because it's not just about for them right. It's not about doing right by their constituents. It's about maintaining their power right being able to re win or get reelected or to have other democrats win if they choose to Challenge any republicans congressional seats but at the same time. And i want to know one other thing. there's a senator who's actually gotten a little more vocal regarding Nuking the filibuster. And that's amy klobuchar. Who recently said in regard to the passage of hr one. I would get rid of the filibuster favored filibuster reform for a long time now especially for this critical election bill which by the way is also referred to as the for the people act so i do think that there's more motivation to ensure the passage of this bill for democrats because it's more self serving than other legislation that would actually benefit people as opposed to themselves but at the same time. I never underestimate the weakness of democratic lawmakers. So we'll see how this plays out in the senate. You have both mansion end cinema on the record saying that they would not end the filibuster in fact mansion recently Threw a temper tantrum when a reporter asked him again if he'd be willing to reconsider his position on the filibuster is like how many times will have to tell you know. The answer is no so we'll see if he's going to remain that defiant but i just at this point after seeing what happened to the fifteen hundred minimum wage in that coronavirus relief. Bill i have very little faith in obviously congress overall but especially among democratic lawmakers who again love to pay lip service but when push comes to shove when they finally find themselves in a position of power to do something they refuse to do it so i watched the movie one night in miami. It's about This one night. Where muhammad ali mountain Sam cooke and jim brown Were all together and says gives a cool movie. It's kind of like a play anyway. The part that i love is is of course ali in and when he wins the championship that night he leans over to the reporters and and this part of why i love guy and he took points though because they all predicted that he would lose lose badly and he won easily imported them said. I told you. I told you i told you. Okay so now. I told you they would take out the fifty dollar minimum wage. Everybody said it's easy no way it's a layup gonna do it. It's a top priority. I told you they take it out. And they took it out. And and i did a tweet with that same prediction. I just told you guys earlier in the day and then later in the day kovic comes on goes. What on this one. The one that helps democrats win. Here's corporate democrat one-on-one amy klobuchar yeah. I think maybe we killed the filibuster. Are that one funny. How that works. Politics is not hard to figure out guys and this point i see it in your comments from our members. You have figured out way better than most of the media in this country. The politicians play these obvious games. We had real journalists. They point out. How obvious these games are so accord and the republicans are dead wrong on voter fraud and any. Bs policy argument. They have against this bill okay. But they're not wrong in saying that the democrats also want to pass it because it does help them. More voters usually goes democratic victories. So that's real politics. That's why there's a very good chance that they might kill the filibuster but they will do the theatrics associated with it and you'll make sure to take out the anti corruption parts. I would be shocked. Shocked beyond belief if they kept anti corruption parts.
Senate Democrats move immediately to "Plan B" on minimum wage
"Yesterday we told you That the parliamentarian head ruled that the dollar minimum wage does not pass muster for reconciliation and must be taken out of a covid relief. Bill now We clarified unlike most of the media. That the parliamentary and actually has no power whatsoever It is just give an advisory opinion is not an actual ruling. The person who does the ruling is actually the presiding chair of the senate was normally is the vice president so comma. Harris is going to have a huge part in this conversation now wants the parliamentarian gave her so called ruling. All the democrats immediately gave up on fifteen dollars minimum wage as things stand now they are going to be taking that provision is going to be taken out of the bill and we will not get fifteen dollar minimum wage for at least four years now. There is a way to prevent it. There are four steps here. I'm going to walk through all four steps and you will see that if we do this. It's actually very doable. To keep it in the bill and to actually win on this issue but it requires courage from progressives and then Requires us to put public pressure on some of our allies and then eventually to the biden administration and sure so step one is unfortunately right now the most important step and where we're going to have to call out bernie sanders bernie sanders. Is the chair of the budget committee. The chair of the budget committee the signs. What is in the kobe. Relief bill bernie sanders. Current plan is to take fifteen dollars minimum wage out of the covid relief. Bill that is a terrible idea. He should not do that. If corporate democrats are going to vote against let them vote against it but doing it on their behalf. i cannot overstate. What a bad idea that is in that scenario that right now is what is going to happen unless we change it together bernie would kill the fifteen dollar minimum wage on behalf of joe manchin and joe by. He should not do that. So that's this is step one. I'm going to get to the other steps in a second guys. I need you to immediately participate. We've got a campaign we've got a partition and and we've got hashtags. We must do all of the above and the campaign is called. Don't kill it bernie because yes step one indisputably. It is a matter of fact. Is that the budget chair decides if it goes in the bill that is bernie sanders. That was the whole point of him being budget share. If he's going to take out. Fifteen dollar minimum wage will take out every provision the joe manchin and joe biden are opposed to that means we will get no progressive priorities past none. The fifteen dollars. Minimum wage was literally the bare minimum. It was the first ask of progressives so bernie. You've got to keep it in the bill because if he does not keep it in the bill. It's over that hashtag fight for fifteen. There is no more fight. That means progressive surrender. I'm being honest with you. Guys our job is to do the news. Those are the facts of how this process works so go to the petition. All right and here. Let's put it up for you guys and it's simply called. Don't kill it bernie. And what is saying is we don. T have a clear message. Don't take it out of the bill. It's one hundred percent your call on whether you keep it in the bill or take it out of the bill. Do not do that because if you take it out of the bill and you kill it then we will not be able to get back to it for four long years and there's no reason for it so and and if you're tweeting about this at all please use hashtag. Don't kill it bernie. Because we must get senator sanders to turn around. There are no other steps if he takes it out of the bill now if he keeps it in the bill now let me walk you through how we could actually win on this step two would be since it's in the bill. The presiding officer of the senate would have to rule to take it out of the bill. So kamala harris who in her role as the vp would normally be the presiding officer. The senate would have to actively vote with republicans or side with republicans the and the parliamentarian for what it's worth again. The parliamentarian has no vote. No power just gave a rando opinion on what they think they should do it. The republicans would never care about it. It it has no force of law at all. in fact it's being used as an excuse by kamla harris show schumer and the others to kill a provision. They were never in favor of so. Then we have to put pressure on comma harris to not side with mitch mcconnell. Can we do that. Yes yes we can definitely do that. If chuck schumer wants to protect com la- harris and he puts another senator in as the presiding officer. Will they will put pressure on chuck schumer. Would you like to continue to be the senator from new york. There are a lot of progressives in new york very very strong. Progressives in new york that could easily take that seat not easily but that could certainly have a shot at taking that seat. So now here's the most part steps three if she decides to take it out of the bill. There's nothing we can do about it comma harrison show schumer will then actively be saying okay. We killed the fifteen dollar minimum wage because we never wanted in the first place but if we get past that step and go. You win you win. We're keeping it in the bill. Then mitch. Mcconnell would object. Mitch mcconnell would then say. I want to appeal the ruling of the chair. Now here's a great news. Since joe manchin a cinema cap the filibuster and so two joe biden. They would need sixty votes to overrule the chair. So that means they need to break our filibuster to overrule the ruling of the chair. They're not gonna get sixty votes. We win okay. There is a separate more but understand before we go to step four step. Four is awesome but right now you understand how simple it is with. Depression brought to keep it in the bill. We have to pressure mention not mansion comma harris and chuck schumer to not side with republicans. Why god is a progressive movement. If we can't do that what can we do. Do we have any power or don't we have any power. Were about to find out. And then step for is if the republicans cannot break the filibuster. The mcconnell has one last option and this is wonderfully ironic. He would have to ask for fifty vote margin and straight up and down. Vote to kill the filibuster in regards to the votes of the presiding chair of the senate now mansion cinema have said that and biden said that the filibuster is the most precious thing in the world to them. So what are they going to. Now turn around just to make sure you don't get higher wages and they're gonna vote to kill the filibuster in this regard. I mean you would be the most spectacularly hypocritical thing they have ever done and they've done some pretty hypocritical fix so you put them in an near impossible situation and it is incredibly doable but step one is do not surrender. Guys one last thing before we go to john and jordan. There's ninety two billion dollars online. This would be a pay raise for about thirty million americans and to the tune of ninety two billion dollars every single year the reason why biden mansion and the republicans don't want to do it is because the chamber of commerce is dead set against it they are those business interests are giant donors to both the republican party and the democratic party. And those donors are saying. I wanna keep the ninety two billion dollars. I want to give it to my workers. I want to keep their wages incredibly low now go do my bidding. And they do now. Bernie is not in that camp. But he's getting pressure from the other democrats to take it out of the bill. We in a sense have to back them up by saying bernie. We do not agree. We do not agree. Don't kill it bernie. Don't kill it

"Up and given that parliamentarian rule will you use authority as vice president to include it in a release bill anyway. Well if an art and we were very disappointed in the parliamentarian rule but we are committed to working with congress to determine the best path forward And and the bottom line is nobody in. Our country should work a full day's work and work forty hours a week and live in poverty so in other words. no. I know how important this issue is. I know that. I have the power to overrule the senate parliamentarian. But no i and i mean jank. These kinds of answers from politicians are a dime a dozen. But what drives me crazy. Is how insulting. It is to people like there. I don't think people are so complacent anymore. I think watch an interview like that and think first of all. I mean in the first video. She's like most people understand that. Minimum wage is seven dollars and twenty. Now they understand. I'm pretty sure a lot of people in the country understand. Secondly if you know it's a serious problem if you know that people are making aren't making enough money to live if they're working fulltime and they're getting paid minimum wage. They're not making enough money to pay their rent to to buy groceries. Just the essentials for themselves right. Then why don't you have the power to include the bill. Make it happen and then do what you did. Kamala harris went to west virginia and started doing interviews to tout the coronavirus relief package and joe mansion was upset about that. He had a temper tantrum about that because he doesn't want his constituents to what a bozo he is because it applies pressure for him to actually do the right thing by his constituents. And i don't know why all of a sudden she's backed off jank go ahead. Yeah so look. There's a lot of good news in that interview. And i'm actually super excited about a honestly we you guys help start an and have done here But i i want to give credit to natalie more. Wbz excellent questions perfect follow-up so normally like the wolf blitzer the world. We'll just skate right by that. She gives a. I'm keep a real an obama like answer of my top priorities. And that's why i'm not gonna do it. Wait what so now. More being an actual reporter was like wait but you do have the power to actually put it in the bill. So are you going to. And he gave the same answer. Which is blabbity blah. Which and i think correctly deduced was no. Okay but look at this. Guy's we've changed the tenor of the conversation and is it exclusively us of course not every reasonable smart progressive out there ranging from the warren people all the way to the burn people and beyond. Everybody is saying several things at the same time which is because you need it. Why you need bernie to introduce that. We've gone over this and he's gonna introduce it number two. You need kamla. La- harris to not rule in favor of a mcconnell filibustering and by agreeing with the parliamentaries advice you would agree with mcconnell and making a sixty vote threshold for democrats to include the minimum wage. Covert relief now. If it's one of your top priorities why would you do that well you. Her excuse was on on a road. I i the parliamentarian but now because it has become a larger issue and did we have some part that will some the press or giving us credit for that. Because i think it's true and again it's not us guys. It's you when making the videos you're using the hashtag. You're signing the petition. In this case it was hashtag. Say was kamla did it. Trend of course trended whatever. We do anything together it trends. We did it with. Don't kill it bernie bernie changes Stance on it halfway right and in this case komo's now finally having to answer questions. You're the vice president. There is absolutely no question is the point of fact. The parliamentarian does not have any power. I mean i know that. The democrats want to paint painted like the parliamentarian controls everything. He was on the grassy knoll. She knows the secret sauce goes into you. Know every burger as it not apologize. Zero power come. a- has all the power and so now she's being called out on it and now now it's a little bit more embarrassing now. The rest of the press looks into it. But the thing is about savings comma where the petition to ty dot com slash petitions slash save us. We framed a sabz com. Why because we're like gullible. People were like oh my god. I think i'm gonna harrison angel but look if you think that great but but we're not trying to get her. We are actually trying to help her. If she makes us happen and over osa parliamentarian she'd been credibly popular. It should be super hard to be if she wrote for president in two thousand four twenty so you save us kamla and you save yourself. It's a no brainer. It's a no brainer. In fact if they think mansion has cinema voted down they don't even need sixty votes comma. Harris can have her cake and eat it too. She could say that yes. The minimum wage is in the bill and then go. Golly gee there was nothing i could do. Corporate donors. don't sweat imagine a cinema gilded. it's actually politically savvy. Move to god. That donors have so much control. She still hasn't done it. But the more people ask and the more natalie. Moore's of the world do great reporting and great interviews the more we got a shot at this thing and all you need to little hope guys and and i would argue use and now the rest of the prices being argue. You started that fire. You started that hope. So this doesn't have to be negative. Tacoma harrison could be wonderfully positive to her. She could be the hero that saves the day. But let's not pretend that it isn't her decision because it most definitely.

"This is John back to show Sebastian Gorka, My friend and colleague of America First is here and we turned to the question of the week. Gers. It is suggested not only by weaker activists in this country. I mentioned one Nori Turkle, whom I've talked to for years. But also voices in Europe are allies that there must be something done about the Winter Olympics. Either bad, boycotted or moved in some fashion because otherwise China is going to use this as an endorsement of its policy, said the administration has said they're reconsidering. I don't know what that word means. What your pardon? Usually it means that he's going to try toe. Well, if he was Solomon, he tried to find out polite way to divide the baby. Right. That's what he tried to do so Do you believe that the U. S. Will go to the Olympics despite the Uighurs and that Mr Biden will say this is how did how did the spokesperson say? That's how diplomacy is done. Yeah, I fear that they may I'd like to see a level of commitment. I'm sure you're familiar with the fact that the so called Equality Act that has decimated title nine for for young women in America, and it is a travesty of what our founding fathers intended when it came to inalienable rights. The real motor behind the so called Equality Act was something called the human Rights campaign. Well, I would like to see an investment of time and money commensurate to their investment in that absurdity. Invested in a campaign to boycott the Olympics. I mean, really, this is the world. I know I'm biased. I know I come from a family that was a oppressed my father tortured by communist. That's advice that's informed. Okay, You're in for it. My history can't divest myself of it. The idea that we should somehow reward China. I still remember the 1919 80 boycott of the Soviet Olympics, and it was a mighty mighty powerful message and what happened? I'm not saying there's a direct correlation, but all of these things came together whether it was blessed Saint John Paul the second Reagan factor, but but that boycott have to have an effect on the eventual collapse of the The Soviet system on November the 9th 1989 so God willing, there will be an international boycott of this monstrous regime that has labor camps that is instituting genocide on has political prisons. But I'm not sure that Joe Biden or Kamala Harris are going to the beat of the primary drivers of such a campaign. The Iran deal. We understand that Joe Biden believes his mission is to restore the JCP away of 2015 back to the future. However, over these last days there have been What you'd have to say suggestive provocations by the Iranian regime. One the attack on these the flag Disraeli tanker in the Gulf of Mother Amman to the rocket attack of an air force base in Iraq. Three. And this what This is under investigation. The downing of the Ukrainian airliners at the January of 2020 by what appears to be bad acting by Iran and four The language of the oil spill off the coast of Israel to an Iranian tanker that is subsequently returned to Iran and is not available First for inspection. Seven Iran is practicing. What you'd have to say is a very is that their version of hybrid warfare Will America respond more than a couple of bombs along the Iraqi Iraqi Syrian border. We'll look at the U. S. Army has this function called Red Teaming? Where, where there's a cell close to the fit of commander that tries to think like the enemy. Let's try and think Like the enemy for a moment. What is the Iranian? One of the conclusions drawn from the U. S actions taken last week? We we now know as of today from reliable sources, somebody was a former defense of correspondent in the Pentagon that the attack that we took in retribution. Against those proxy forces killed individuals that had nothing. And I mean nothing to do with the original attack. So if you're one of the Muellers if you're a commander, the IRGC the most powerful nation in the world that crushed Isis that initiated a trade war with China. Took actions to send a message to you, and then it was a pinprick. But killed a lthough wrong People that only emboldens the murderous molars in Iran and I think they're going to get exactly what they want. And let's just be clear that people who are will take action. We know this are the Israelis just earlier today. The Times of Israel, uh, share the news that Netanyahu has told Vice President Harris that Israel will not permit Iran to acquire nuclear weapons. So whatever they do to provoke us, John There is somebody who will take action. Thank the Good Lord and finally Sam, Afghanistan. The Biden administration says that is going to make a decision. By May 1st on May 1st or by May 1st. John Bolton told me this week. He believes they're no good choices here. But leaving is the worst choice. Do you have a measure of this? We have 30 seconds. I have nothing positive in terms of what's coming out of the Pentagon or the National Security Council. But I will. I will just mine analysis, which has been the same for the last five years. We deployed to Afghanistan for one reason. One reason alone not to build the ring road not to build hospitals, but to make sure that the territory of that nation could not be used again to affect a mass casualty attack on U. S soil. That is the only thing that matters in terms of geopolitics. That is the only thing we should be doing now, and that can be done with a very, very small footprint, even perhaps not established in Afghanistan itself with somewhere in theater. That's what we should be doing whether Biden does it. I have zero plea right now. Sebastian Gorka America first time John Nash..
VP Kamala Harris believes teachers must be prioritized for COVID-19 vaccinations
"We're back now with vice president. Khama harris on the battle to reopen schools. Does she agree with the. Cdc's plan and do teachers need to be vaccinated. I she spoke one on one with savannah. Guthrie let's talk about schools at. We got a lot of parents watching right now. The cdc few days ago finally put out some long awaited guidance on how schools could safely reopen. But here's the thing. They tied it directly to the rate of infection in any given community. And i'm gonna put a map up because if schools were to follow that right now. Ninety percent of the county's ninety percent of the schools would not be able to the cdc's own metric. Was it a mistake for the cdc to connect school reopening to how much infection. There isn't a community. Well let's i say this that in the last four weeks schools are opening every week more schools are opening and it is because we are supplementing. What needs to happen around the vaccinations getting into two states. But also because folks are. We're seeing progress. But what about that. Cdc guidance then that's that's the question. Well so here's the thing. What the cdc. What they have recommended are exactly that recommendations about how to reopen safely if they've been closed how to stay open if they'd been opened and so the recommendations. What again needs to happen. Around social distancing handwashing mask wearing but the point is that we all want our kids to get back to school as quickly as possible and safely as possible. The cdc has said it is not a prerequisite for teachers to be vaccinated for them to go back to school but many teachers are of going back to school. Can you reassure teachers. Who are listening right now that it is safe for them to go back to school even if they are not vaccinated if these public health measures like distancing and masks are being implemented so first of all let me just say this and the president has said it and we're all really clear. Teachers should be priority. Teachers should be a priority. I believe that twenty two states. I believe have prioritized but each is in terms of stating 'cause it's safe for them well. I think that we have to decide if we can put in place safe measures. This is why it's so important. We pass the american rescue plan. It's going to be safe for schools to reopen when we can get our schools. The infrastructure needs like helping them with their ventilation systems helping them create social distancing with with barriers. The things that are necessary to get them back opening a safe way so savannah after that interview. I understand late today. The white house clarified. That's right it's spokesperson. Said the vice president and the president agree. Vaccinations are not a requirement for teachers to return. It is the white preference that teachers get priority but that lester is up to the
VP Harris casts tie-breaker vote in Senate progressing stimulus bill
"The Senate passed a budget resolution after a 15 hour marathon session known as a vote a Rama. It ended with Vice President Kamala Harris, casting her first tie breaking vote of the Biden administration. Passing the budget measures sets the stage for Democrats to move forward with Biden's coronavirus relief plan without Republican support. NPR congressional correspondent Kelsey Snell joins us now and Kelsey Walk us through what happened last night in the Senate and into the early morning. So this whole process known as a vote A Rama is a normal part of getting a budget passed and the very first step in using the procedural tool that Democrats want to use to pass the coronavirus aid is passing a budget. Down that also involves up just an endless string of amendments. Basically, any senator can offer basically on the amendment as often as they want and as long as they want until they get tired. The thing about it, though, is most of the amendments that get past are nonbinding, meaning that they end up having almost no no real impact on whatever legislation is to come. So we went through this long ritual, this long process to set up what will be now the committee work. So all of the committees that are named in this budget resolution will start to get to work on writing an actual covert, really fill a thing that could be enacted into law. And speaking of those amendments, Republicans and even some Democrats have suggested limiting Biden's proposed $1400 direct checks to a smaller group of people. Are there any details yet? About who could be excluded from that relief and what the income threshold might be. We don't really know for sure yet, because, like I said the committee's haven't actually started doing their work. What we do know is that there is some appetite, including among Democrats to make sure that those checks are targeted more. There have been some arguments that people who are making more than is may be necessary to To need an additional influx of cash. But those people have been receiving tax and there's an effort to kind of parrot down to make sure that as Republicans say it is targeted relief Now there is a debate about who really qualifies as being too high of an income to require such stimulus on I think we're going to be seeing that play out over the next several weeks. And I think the fact that there was an amendment on this issue that it got debate and that you know, it's indicates that this is something that both sides really care about, which means that it is most likely to have a really serious conversation that could drag out for at least the duration of the time that this isn't committees. I see. I see. And did we learn anything more during this process last night about the fate of a plan to raise the federal minimum wage to 15 bucks an hour. We do know that this is another place where there is, You know some disagreement among Democrats about the fate of the $15 minimum, which some Democrats say that $15 is just not What it should be across the country. They say that maybe in some cities in jurisdictions $15 is a reasonable minimum wage. But they say that other places in the country that doesn't need to be quite that high. Now President Biden has said that it needs to be part of the package. Bernie Sanders, the Budget committee chairman, says that that needs to be part of the package, so this could be one of those issues. That really drags Congress into a fight we've seen with budget reconciliations process that they're using that little fights over things that are important policies to some members can drag down entire bills, and this is a policy that is very important to a lot of people. So it could be one of those issues that we see people fighting about for the next several weeks. Kelsey. I spoke with Senator Tim Kaine earlier this week. And he tried to make the point that this budget reconciliation process could still be bipartisan. Even though a final bill likely isn't going to require any Republican support based on what you saw last night. Is that true? Are Republicans having much of a say in this process? That is technically true. There have been bipartisan reconciliation bills in the past, but you know in this situation Republicans air starting out at about $600 billion, and Democrats are talking about $1.9 trillion. Bridging that gap and finding bipartisanship on such a big divide would be very difficult to come by. NPR's Kelsey Snell. Thank you so much. Thanks for having me.
The Power of Black Female Voters With Marcia Chatelain
"I recently wrote in forbes about how kamala harris may be able to heal the wounds between black women and white women but i defer to our terrific yesterday on these issues. I'd like you to meet dr. Marcia chatelaine a provost distinguished associate professor of history and african american studies at georgetown university here in washington dc. She's a scholar of american life and culture previously. She was an assistant professor of honors in african american studies at the university of oklahoma in norman. She earned her. Phd at brown university and her undergraduate studies at the university of missouri columbia in journalism and religious studies fellow aspiring journalists. They go. Marsha was a terrific expert featured in the recent pbs series. The vote on how women fought for and won the right to vote over an eighty year struggle or more welcomed green connections radio. Marcia thank you for joining us. Thank you for having me. Oh you're welcome. You're welcome so our start in the heart of this issue. As i said in my introduction i've understood the black and white women had a kind of love hate relationship if you will during the suffrage battles as i understand it. Black women wanted white women to include abolition in their struggle. But the white women leaders believe the combining the two would keep the legislation from. What is your take on it. Tell us the truth. Because you're the historian so the issue at hand between abolition and suffrage are deeply tied. And that's because a number of figures in the suffrage movement were first activists in the fight against slavery and i think the poignancy of the battle for women's suffrage was the fact that many of the white women who were at the lead of the suffrage movement were anti-slavery and they had supported. Abolitionist may have believed that there was a moral reason to end the system of slavery but when it came to suffrage they were divided over the issue of universal suffrage Some do not believe that black women white men should equally have the vote. Some did not believe that black men and black women should have the vote. So i think that the suffrage movement really exposes the limitations of racial solidarity even among people who were on the right side of history one issue were not able to transfer that sense of grace to the issue of suffrage. And that's where you see the fault lines. In the suffrage movement really emerged from it was the fact that they did not want include african american women visibly or prominently or ideologically in their fight for the right to vote because they believed that it would degrade the quality of the vote of degrade the preciousness of the right and a number of these women again. Even though they were morally opposed to slavery they would not immune from white supremacist ideas. Okay so there's so much to unpack in there. You said something really interesting you said and i paraphrase of course but the the the divisions over the vote represented larger divisions in the racial schisms. If you will Racial solidarity behind the vote. Yes so one of the things that i think. A lot of people don't understand from how they're taught history is that we often think of the issue of slavery as one in which people were either pro or anti and it's often presented as a matter of north versus south union versus confederacy. But if you look at the movement to end slavery and look at abolitionists. They all had very different ideas of what happens next. They knew that slavery is a scourge on the nation. But they didn't agree on. What would it mean for african americans to be elevated to the level of status rather the level of a citizen and what that status should mean and so there were people who were abolitionists but they were segregationists. There were abolitionists who believed that african americans should be repatriated to colonies in africa. They were people who believed in complete and total social equality in some people believed in some level of social quality but not marriage and so those debates among the abolitionist movement i think are very much mirrored in the debate among white selfridge's who should get the vote i who should be allowed to vote. And what measures should be taken in order to ensure their desired goals
Washington, DC Statehood Bill Introduced By Senate Democrats
"Now you know this has been on the wish list of democrats for quite some time along with a promoting of puerto rico to statehood as well. Now that's compensation for a different time. But you had senator tom carper. He's democrat out of delaware leading over three dozen of his democrat colleagues to introduce companion bill for washington dc statehood gesture on tuesday. Now remember a similar. Bill passed the house last year. Now will face well pretty much. A democrat controlled senate to determine if dc will become the fifty first state but is that even possible. Well i found this piece. I pulled this back in early january out of the washington post. And it's pretty indepth piece about dc statehood. Bottom line is these. Dc statehood still faces a number of high hurdles not only in the narrowly divided senate but yes in public opinion as well. Think about this. A two thousand nine thousand nine gallup poll found that nearly two-thirds of us opposed dc statehood. So why is in dc already a state. well we need to look at the constitution washington. Dc's founding is enshrined in the constitution which provides that the district not exceeding the constitution. Not exceeding ten miles. Square would become the seat of the government of the united states now for a brief period of time after the city's creation back in seventeen ninety residents -joyed voting rights and were allowed to cast ballots as residents of maryland or virginia but those rights ended shortly after congress moved into town and the new capital in eighteen hundred and pass the district of columbia organic act of eighteen. O one the act stripped dc residents of their rights to vote in all federal elections including for president and gave congress oversight of the city. Have you ever seen a dc washing a plate license plate. You know what it says you know with. The slogan is taxation without representation. Now the district was not afforded presidential electors until the passage of the twenty-third amendment. Back in one thousand. Nine hundred sixty one. Its residents didn't get a non voting delegates in the house until nineteen seventy so begs the question. How can congress change this well. Those opposed to making dc estate have argued that statehood for dc can't happen without a constitutional amendment. They say that the founders intended the entire district to serve as the seat of federal government not as state but legislation put forth by non voting delegate. Eleanor holmes norton every year since nineteen ninety-one would not eliminate the seat of government that the constitution calls for in stead her bill which shrink the national capital to a small complex of federal buildings while allowing the rest of the district to become a state proponents of statehood for their part argue that this plan preserves federal enclave. Whose only requirement is that. It can't exceed ten square miles and escapes the need for a constitutional amendment. Nothing simple as that outstanding questions remain over. What would happen to the three electoral college votes. Currently afforded to the district when it becomes a smaller that role enclave. And some have wondered whether the twenty-third amendment would have to be repealed. So that the few residents of the federal enclave namely we're talking about those residing at sixteen hundred pennsylvania avenue don't retain them so what needs to happen for dc to become state. Well the bill to make these estate obviously has enough supports in the house to pass again and jordi leader steny hoyer pledged to bring it to vote with backing from speaker. Nancy pelosi by your indeed even though the senate is pretty evenly split. Well let's just say it's a tough road to hoe in the senate democrats occupy half the seats in that chambers. Thanks to the victories of ossoff and wore knock In georgia both of whom support would no surprise there. And then you've got vice president. Kamala harris in this fifty fifty split in the senate able to cast the tie breaking boat and she liked biden supports
The EU doesn't trust its citizens data in the hands of the U.S.
"With all the big crises facing america. It's surprising to privacy. So high on president biden's agenda but in his first week in office he already appointed someone to negotiate with the european union on how personal information is moved between europe and the us last summer that you said the way data was being sent to. The us was insecure. In august ireland's data regulators told facebook. Stop transferring its citizens data out of europe. The issue is with the irish high court now. In december facebook argued that court that to stop data transfers would have quote devastating and irreversible consequences for its business and this rule would obviously impact all kinds of commercial data and companies. It's also obviously a big deal for the new administration. Jessica a partner with the law firm loeb and loeb prior to twenty twenty. Let's say we had something called the privacy shield in effect and that helped us transfer data from the eu to the us and then over the summer. July twenty twenty. That was struck down. It was found that because of some of the surveillance operations of the us certain executive orders and laws we have in place that the data of eu individuals when it comes here essentially is it held to the same privacy standards as they are in the eu and the privacy. Shield wasn't adequate enough to protect it so that left a lot of us in the privacy community scrambling toward the second half of the year trying to figure out. How do we keep data flowing across the border right and that was a big deal to american tech companies right. I mean they were saying okay. Well look if we can't share data back and forth. We're not going to be able to operate in some of these countries right right. Exactly and so yeah. We've been looking for two things. So one is standard contractual clauses of companies have kind of defaulted to that but even those shaky ground and are being revised so. I think everyone was hoping that we'd find some solution. Some post privacy shield path forward with the eu. But that was difficult. I think what the previous administration will and so now we actually have someone in this role early. What does that signal to the rest of the world about the position. The us might take on privacy. I mean i think it signals a couple of things. I on privacy. I think it it signals that the biden administration understands the importance and the significance of the issue. And the need to kind of have these kind of crossborder cooperation In place and so. I think having someone christopher hoffa was appointed to this position really signals at. They're going to take the seriously and then take the steps that might be needed on the side of the us to make the comfortable with these data transfers. More broadly what sort of issues around. Privacy and surveillance do we expect. The biden administration tackle. Is there a chance for federal privacy legislation at long last. I've said that. I have moved from just mostly pessimistic to now moderately optimistic and that was really push forward by what happened in georgia so now with one party control all houses i think the path forward seems a little bit more clear and you know to keep in mind that biden and then we also have comma harris. Who formerly was attorney. General in california where she pushed forward a lot of significant privacy legislation. That's still impacts a lot of us today. So you know between the two of them i think this is an administration that has a background and understanding of the importance of privacy. And you know we have to deal with the pandemic. I but i anticipate privacy being a priority for them. Yeah i mean as a you mentioned by president. Kamala harris as a presidential candidate. She said that her first priority with tech companies is to ensure that consumer privacy remains uncompromised. Like is it. Is this an administration. You think that will try to find a better line between a business friendly approach and a consumer friendly approach whereas now it seems to be all business i do i do. I think i think that'd be really sensitive to the consumer issues. And if we think about it. When i look at what's going on in terms of trying to regulate privacy and then more broadly the tech companies it it feels like regulators are trying to chase a ball down a hill. You know it's just like oh. Do we do antitrust. Do we do section to thirty. Can we get some kind of federal privacy. And i think they'll try to take a pragmatic approach that will bridge the gap between the business and the consumer advocates. And from where. I said i think they're really sticking issues with federal privacy. That are left. It's will there be a private right of action meaning well individual consumers be able to sue companies directly. And then we'll they'll be preemption. Meaning that will this federal bill preempt any state laws which is really what business wants because business doesn't want to have to comply with fifty different state privacy laws on top federal privacy. So i think if we can get a path forward on those to all the other points of privacy laws are consumers get writes a lot of companies are already complying with that because of gdp pr see cpa. So we're down to the we're down to the final issues. Hopefully
Tribes and Native advocates praise Joe Biden’s actions to reverse many of the Trump Administration’s environmental policies affecting tribal lands
"This is national native news. Making camera in print tony gonzalez tribal advocates are praising president. Joe biden's quick action to reverse the last administration's environmental policies the mountain west news bureaus savannah mar reports on inauguration day biden took steps to rejoin the paris climate accord.

The guardian reported the standing rock sioux tribe and the nonprofit earthjustice urged biden in a video to shutdown dapple biden has not made statements on that pipeline but last year when she was a senator vice president kamala harris signed in a mikus brief calling on a judge to shut it down while an environmental impact study was done. Dapple is already transporting half a billion barrels of crude oil daily last week. Seventy five female indigenous leaders sent biden a letter calling for a halt on fossil fuel projects.

Lady Gaga and Jennifer Lopez deliver moving inauguration performances
"Inauguration musical performances are tricky but lady gaga jennifer lopez and garth brooks. Did exactly what we needed them to do. By stephanie's jaric when lady gaga the first performer. At the inauguration of president joe biden and vice president kamala harris step toward the podium to sing everything about her that tropical red poof of skirt. The colossal golden dove perched on her shoulder that milk made from moma hairdo. Was celebratory announcement. Welcome to the modern age. Though the road ahead is rocky we no longer need to live and dread gaga living completely in the moment had arrived to point the way toward the future inauguration musical performances in their need to balance solemnity with jubilation are always tricky propositions but the biden harris performances from gaga. Lo and garth brooks performers from disparate backgrounds and different disciplines struck a note. Unlike any we've previously heard let's call it a sigh of relief building to a cheer of exaltation. even the cloud strewn blue of the washington sky seemed key to the moment and to this particular event taking place in a spot where just two weeks ago a bunch of clumsy if dangerous insurrectionist took a run at democracy and failed jennifer lopez was the centerpiece performer. But let's talk about her. First emerging all white chanel. She projected confidence civil woman who has worked her way to the top of her game. White everyone likes to note is one of the colors of the suffragettes. But it's also the color of working people in machine washable cotton and the color of luxury and dry clean only silken wall in this remarkable. Hi lo j. lo outfit replete with snowy gibault possibly a not to the garb of our founding fathers lopez. Saying a remarkable song. This land is your land. It was written in nineteen forty by. Woody guthrie allegedly and shabby hotel room just outside of times square. Not on the six but in close enough for lopez to sing this song a protest anthem but also an irrefutable declaration of belonging with so much conviction and boldness is to bring guthrie's intent and his dream full circle. This is in america. He couldn't have imagined. So terrible in some ways yet so radiant and others here is where woody and his work shirt meets a dazzling latina artists from the bronx who represents not just in terms of any monetary success but in her sheer awesomeness. Everything that an individual is free to strive toward in america. Lopez's version of the song wasn't a reclamation. You can't reclaim something that already belongs to you. And as she segue into the song we sometimes think of as our second national anthem. America the beautiful she reaffirmed that sense of ownership and pride and a breakout moment she shouted out in spanish words that translate into one nation under god indivisible with liberty and justice for all. But you didn't need to speak the language to know what she meant.

QAnon after Trump: The Storm that never came
"Justin ling is an author and a reporter who has been following the twists and turns of the cunanan movement for most of this year. Hello jesmyn hey thanks for having me of course. Why don't you start before we get into what's happened since joe biden was sworn in What we're various cue in on believers expecting to happen on january. I think the vast majority of people who follow the conspiracy never thought joe biden would ever be inaugurated. They said that repeatedly a whole part of the queue. Mythos has been that something amazing will happen and that donald trump will be at the last minute. Of course cunanan has been sort of the vanguard of the conspiracy that donald trump never actually lost the election. That was old rigged the they were the ones. We're doing a lot of that. Frontline research but research in scare quotes there that underpinned the trump campaign's effort to overturn the election. You can draw a straight line. From a lot of the conspiracies that popped up on q. Forms like eight chan and gab. A right into at the trump campaign's legal filings around the election. Right the conspiracies around dominion voting systems basically gaining sentence and changing trump votes to biden. You know that started on a lot of these forms and wound up in those legal filings from sydney powell from lynnwood from the trump campaign that were an attempt to overturn the results and then also founded the belief of some republican senators congressmen. Who tried to deny. Joe biden certification victory so they consistently thought that those efforts would work when they didn't they deluded themselves with a sort of magical realism thinking that something would happen today. That on this stage will as joe biden's hand hits the bible that there'd be mass arrests that the national guard was really. They're not to protect the inauguration but to set the stage to have joe biden and his compatriots arrested. there was a pervasive belief. That a military tribunal would be set up in dc and that all of these folks from barack obama to bush hillary clinton joe biden kamala harris. Everybody would be arrested and tried for treason. I mean this is literally what many of them believed. I'm not exaggerating. This was the bedrock of the faith. The cunanan had that would turn out in their favor. Any word we're talking. You know to thirty on wednesday afternoon. There were still a whole bunch of folks who think that in the next ten days. It'll all the inauguration will turn out to be a ruse There is a tremendous amount of faith from these folks. Things will turn around in their favor. Any given moment that. If it's not now than pretty soon. And i think it's been horror on many of these folks to watch predictions consistently failed to come true will. Yeah you've been keeping an eye on these forums for for a long time off and on but you've also been Pretty glued to them over the past twenty four hours or so and as you mentioned. We're talking on wednesday afternoon. How of they've been handling it as you know. I trump depart. Says he wasn't supposed to then. Nothing happens at the inauguration. Then nothing happens when they inspect the troops and you know presumably knock on wood No mass arrests take place at the inaugural or whatever but like how. How do they deal with that consistent disappointment so i think there's there's kind of a handful of different camps right is a camp of coup non believers or maybe former cunanan believers who are accepting that things haven't gone their way who are posting right now on a lot of these forms saying you know what that's it i can't do it anymore. My face has been shattered. This was all a ruse. We it was sort of a triple fake out. None of the prediction come true Either q. is never real or they're overplaying their hand or whatever. Basically these folks have accepted that none of this is real I don't know that those people are going to turn around and embrace liberalism tomorrow but at the very least they seem to be disenchanted and done with this sort of far right conspiracy. Making there are other people who have kind of come to the same conclusion but to a different from a different angle. You know there were there. Were people who used to believe this or maybe who will always kind of in the same Area of belief but never quite trust the cunanan thing who are saying. Well we've been played. You know this was all just a gambit for people who make money you'll get power whatever but we have the double down on the same mission does not under the ambit of of cunanan. These are people who are probably very. Who are i know anti semitic who are you know. In some cases homophobic racist who are deeply reactionary and conservative on these are people who just fundamentally can't square a biden administration but who we're going to find a new channel for a lot of those grievances and there are going to be a bunch of people who who stick with who convinced themselves that this is all part of the plan. I've seen a theory emerged in the last day. That says the joe biden is in on it that actually joe biden donald trump working together. And this is. This is people trying to rationalize how these predictions keep failing right. You always have to find a new path to explain everything all there's always numerology that goes into it. There's always some sort of of myth making that you have to do to to sort of comport. What's happening with what you
President Biden appeals for unity to take on crises
"Biden takes. The helm appeals for unity to take on crises. Kamala harris becomes the first woman to be vice president and biden targets trump policies on climate virus and immigration. It's thursday january twenty one. I'm anthony davis. Joe biden was sworn in as the forty sixth president of the united states on wednesday. Declaring democracy has prevailed and summoning american resilience and unity to confront the deeply divided nations historic confluence of crises denouncing. A national uncivil. War biden took the oath at the us. Capitol that had been battered by an insurrectionist siege. Just two weeks earlier. Then taking his place at the white house oval office he plunged into a stack of executive actions that began to undo the haunt of his polarizing predescessors agenda on matters from the deadly pandemic to climate change at the capitol with the american tradition of peaceful transfer of power never appearing more fragile. The quadrennial ceremony unfolded within a circle of security forces evocative of a war zone and devoid of crowds. Because of the coronavirus pandemic instead biden gazed out on a cold washington morning dotted with snow flurries to see over two hundred thousand american flags planted on the national mall to symbolize those who could not attend in person. The will of the people has been heard and the will of the people has been heated. We've learned again. Democracy is precious and democracy is fragile at this hour. my friends. Democracy has prevailed biden declared in his speech. This is america's day. This is democracies day a day in history and hope of renewal and resolve. History was made at his side as kamala harris became the first woman to be vice. President the former. Us senator from california is also the first black person and the first person of south asian descent elected to the vice presidency and the highest ranking woman ever to serve in the us government rare inaugural address president joe biden issued a strong repudiation of white supremacy and domestic terrorism on the rise on the donald trump in his speech biden denounced racism negativism fear demonization. That propels the assault on capitol hill by an overwhelming white mob of trump's supporters who carried symbols of hate including the confederate battle flag biden never mentioned his predecessor who defied tradition and left town ahead of the ceremony but his speech was an implicit rebuke of donald trump. The new president denounced lies told for power and for profit and was blunt about the challenges ahead central among them the surging virus that has claimed more than four hundred thousand lives in the united states as well as economic strains and a national reckoning over race. We have much to do in this winter of peril significant possibilities few people in our nation's history of been more challenged or found a time more challenging or difficult than the time we're in now biden said the absence of biden's predescessor from the inaugural ceremony undescored. The national rift to be healed but a bipartisan trio. Former presidents bill. Clinton george w bush and barack obama with there to witness the transfer of power biden in his third run for the presidency staked his candidacy less on any distinctive political ideology then on galvanizing a broad coalition of voters around the notion that trump posed an existential threat to american democracy for years after trump's american carnage speech painted a dark portrait of national decay biden warned that the fabric of the nation's democracy was tearing but could be repaired swearing the oath with his hand on a five inch thick bible. That has been in his family for one. Hundred and twenty eight years biden came to office with a well of empathy and resolve born by personal tragedy as well as a depth of experience forged for more than four decades in washington
VP Harris swears in new senators, giving Democrats control of Congress
"The new administration began with vice president. Kamala harris the duties of the office. On which i am about the duties upon which i am about she made history as the nation's highest ranking woman right hand and then took her place in the senate to swear in tune new democrats and just tip the balance of power.
The one reason I will have grace for President Joe Biden & Vice President Kamala Harris
"It's official donald. Trump is no longer the president of the united states. As i speak. Joe biden and kamala harris are being inaugurated are being sworn in to their positions and we are about to enter a very new era of national politics of federal politics. I don't expect that it will be easy. In any way we have over-simplified our problems in the sense that we have blamed many of our deep systemic problems that predated trump. We have blamed many of those things on him including police. Brutality mass incarceration when those things were fully entrenched before he ever took office. But i want to say. And i want to talk about this this one thing today. I wanna say the one reason why. I'm going to have a serious degree of grace and patients with both joe biden and kamala harris. That i think a year ago. I probably would not have offered. Had the two of them been sworn in but a lot has happened over the past year. Let me tell you why. I'm going to have grace as they began this extremely difficult journey. Let me unpack and explain it. This is shaun king. You're listening to the breakdown. The breakdown the breakdown. If you've ever listened to this podcast or if you follow me on social media you've ever seen or heard me on the campaign trail for bernie sanders you know that. I've been a huge huge critic of joe biden and in particular. I've been a huge critic of his is policies and history and and kind of problematic past on issues of mass incarceration the war on drugs and policing and win this presidential campaign particularly we go all the way back almost two years now on the democratic primaries i started there was no coronavirus pandemic. There had been no attack on the american capital and the four hundred thousand plus people who've now died over the past nine months they were they were all alive and what has happened to our nation over the past year truly makes it arguably one of the most difficult years in modern american history of certainly over the past few generations at the very least. It's just been an unspeakably difficult year. And the truth. Is that all of the things that made twenty twenty so hard as we saw just continued into twenty twenty one now with trump out of office and with him off of twitter and i. That's no small thing. I i wasn't. I was on break from the podcast when he was booted from twitter and didn't get really didn't get a chance to really unpack it but having him off of twitter is damn near as big as having him out of the white house. Twitter was his superpower and with him no longer their misinformation and hate and so much other things so many other things just plummeted all over social media particularly on twitter. He he we now. Fully understand was the epicenter of hate and misinformation on that platform. And when you remove him all of a sudden so many other negative metrics plummeted as well now hate and racism and bigotry. Don't disappear when you remove him from twitter. But having trump out of office without the power of that position about the power to appoint judges and supreme court justices and cabinet members and white house staffers in without the power of executive actions without him and his incompetent team overseeing the a horrible response to the coronavirus pandemic a competent team can now be put in place and so a lot of the things that made twenty twenty difficult. Some of those things continue into twenty twenty one though with trump out of office his administration out of office and with him off of twitter. I think there are some things that will get better with that sale. Joe biden comma. Harris are literally about to begin. What i think will be the most difficult presidency in our lifetime

I candidate for the democratic nomination for the presidency of the united states of america. I am not a candidate of black america. Although i am black and proud. I am not a candidate of the women's movement of this country although i am a woman and i'm equally proud of that. It was so important for that kind of support in both directions. Not only to help rainbow sign come into existence but also to have a place where iran dellums or shirley chisolm could come and talk to their constituents so it wasn't all one one sided if that makes sense rainbow needed them. They need it rain beside miss daisy woods. Jones who you heard from earlier use rainbow sign for political organizing to. It was here that she in a small group of other women founded that organization. We talked about proper black women organized for political action stabbing out of twelve women who were mondello for his initial wrongful. Congress decided that we wanted to create an ongoing a place where we could have african. American women engaged in the political process to be a voice at the table. And when we call the meeting at the rainbow sintus saying african american women who are interested in being engaged in the political process. Join us on. We expected thirty. Thirty five forty people and the result of that was I bet you assume hundred fifty three hundred women who showed up. We didn't know quite what to do that. Many women but it showed again what that place meant. It was the place to be. So what happened to this hub of artistic and intellectual and political energy. And how did it shape a young comma harris. That's after the break. Stay with us. What i to serlin woods and nigel poor. We make a podcast call ear hustling.

Melissa and dylan bright believe child. Protective services has moved on from their case and they try to do the same but when a cps worker comes to their door it's the beginning of the hardest of their lives. Much as i love that child who wasn't a hug in the world. That was going to make what was about to happen not happen. I want her to hug me. Not like go for the rest of eternity because i don't know when on hooker again search for do no harm wherever you're listening right now and subscribe we're back i'm sure mainly and this is into america and today we're going back in time through the doors place called rainbow sign a black cultural centre in berkeley california. A place that made an indelible impression on a little girl who go on to become vice. President elect calmly harris but like so many good things. Its existence short-lived rainbow sign opened. Its doors in one thousand nine hundred seventy one but just six years later it was gone. It's founders weren't able to raise the funds to buy that building on grove and the rent was just too high. But for people like desi woods jones the rainbow sign transcended that brief window of time. I asked her about that. And i wonder if the rainbow sign in its biggest idea would have meant was always more than just what was happening in the east bay. Oh i think so nothing. So many things thoroughly giving the rainbow. Cy shannon was really the genesis for a lot of other movements that sort of spurred up throughout the nation because again it was a comfortable place. It was a place where african americans knew that they had some control. Lashio leaders of state need is regionally. Came out of that place and of course are now beautiful. Young vice president-elect being kamla harris hey olive that exposure so there it is the rainbow sign then come harris. Now it's kind of amazing to realize the connections in fact the vice president elect is actually a member of disease organization. Dizzy has known her for years. I guess what i. I remember meeting calmly. She was probably at her twenties and she was activists in full but she. Her parents were part of that activism community in that energy. So been exposed to that. It'll it has to have a impact on who you become and how you live our vp. Kumble harris speak so fondly about the rainbow sign and is written in her memoir Just how it shaped terror as the young person with her mother and her sister and the warmth that she felt there. And i wonder when you see kamla harris now whether it's making her victory speech the first black woman. Vp right if you see a reflection of the rainbow sign.
"kamala harris" Discussed on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah: Ears Edition
"Are small businesses. We have to have a plan in the tales matter I would love to start at the beginning of the journey go. It's interesting being Kamala Harris because according to trump you all crazier than Bernie, the Mosul socialist person in the world, and then according to some people you are not progressive enough who are you to you? Like if you introducing Kamala Harris to people. Who is commonly Harris and what are you going to represent when you get into that office? Let me tell you I am the child of parents who fought for civil rights. I. Am the daughter of a mother who arrived in the United States at the age of nineteen. And believed that she and her children could do anything and that we should never hear. No. And and so these are some of the things that have fueled my ambition to fight for equality to fight for justice to fight for fairness, and when I think about the prospect of being the vice president of the United States, those will be my values and my goals informed by the values that are about understanding the need to to fight for the dignity. Of all people fighting for working families fighting for the vulnerable and the voiceless among us these. These are the things that propel me the things that propel me are to fix these problems in a way that we understand the people behind the issues and not just engaging grand gestures but engage in what is actually necessary to address the needs of the people. You know and yeah, the the these people I mean I don't pay attention to the name calling trevor there some of us who have lived a lifetime of being called names and it is predictable and it is childish and it will not distract me. Go Away because when we come back, we'll have more of my conversation with Kamala Harris including why her name is so easy it's so difficult to pronounce..
"kamala harris" Discussed on The Cave of Time
"That's one of the reasons that I was saying that Kamala could be a boon to that vote so like you said. Joe Biden is already connected to Obama. So there's already that kind of like mild influence to get out and vote for you know Obama's Bro but then having an actual whether or not you think she's black having an actual black candidate on the ticket to is just that much more. Yes I see where you're coming from but I don't think I don't think the turnout is going to be there I don't think the youth vote is going to be there. And here's. Where I was going to before it's a trap for Donald Trump because. As you said there's a weakness for Kamala. Where in the primaries we saw this progressives didn't like really believe or they SARS duplicitous as we've been saying, they saw her as this kind of law and order candidate. She's put like a lot of people away. She's she's not appealing to as far as record is concerned, not very appealing to what we would think the blackout would be appealing to now donald trump could attack her in that weak point. But that whole realm is a weak point for Donald Trump Joe Biden. On, Joe Biden opened up his campaign literally the first thing he released from his campaign was attaching himself to the Charlottesville protest where white supremacy. This is how it was framed white supremacists rallied and they targeted this anti-racist protester and ran her over with a car. Buying kicked off his campaign centric himself as the Anti Racist Anti White Supremacist candidate and This is electing a black female specifically Kamala Harris is just centering it on race that much more, and this is losing ground for Donald Trump period. No matter how you slice it is losing ground for Donald. Trump if donald trump does go after the weak spot that you pointed out, it's just Going to take himself into a battlefield where he loses. And so. Recently very recently it seems he's going in eight then yeah. Yes. He just did a tweet.
"kamala harris" Discussed on The Cave of Time
"All right. Well, her his history is a prosecutor that was kind of a big a big story when she was running in the primaries for the Democratic nominee for president few ran it. We didn't mention that she ran against Joe Biden in the. Primary elections. So or history is a prosecutor. Is Unlike. Many Democrats and certainly not what the progressive left would like to see in a candidate. She pursued parents of children who were truant from school would put them in jail. So kids kids who were late or absent from school, she would legally pursue with the parents and potentially put them in prison. She resisted. Resisted an order to ease California's prison overcrowding by releasing prisoners, which is something that would be popular among a lot of the Democrat constituents opposed marijuana legalization in two, thousand, Ten and two, thousand twelve, but she since changed. Position on that since she famously told I believe it was hot ninety, seven and Charlemagne. The God that she was smoking weed in college while listening to to park and Torres Bi and snoop doggy Dogg Yup before they hit even became musical artists. Went to school. So I do look us up. She went to school law school in Nineteen eighty-nine and snoop dogg's for seldom nine, hundred, eighty three. So this is not her undergrad that you do for three or four years. This is her post Grad for one or two years, but she would have graduated by the time snoop Dogg came out A blatant lie it's blatant fucking lie. Well, it's possible. She misremembered. You know. Maybe it was when she was working those late nights she had actually. This was one year before the album came out one year before she got that job. So she was actually probably sleeping with Willie Brown smoking joins But this is this is one of many straws on the camel's back for Kamala Harris is the genuineness but going further on her history as a prosecutor, she aggressively prosecuted a lot of misdemeanors she didn't support the banning of the death penalty she she basically supported the death penalty. Her reason for all this that she says now is that she was working to change the system from inside and that she couldn't always go with her instincts. Her client was the state of California and that's what she was trying to serve. So it wasn't her acting as herself. It was more just her acting as a lawyer on behalf of the State of There's also like she was again statewide body camera Weyermann's. She refused to respond for victims that we're abused. By Catholic clergy. She supported bills that support seizing assets for forfeiture. She fought against releasing nonviolent offenders so that they could be used to find wildfires in California. Did, you have other stuff wanted to go through or am I just step on Tokyo history as a prosecutor not I'd gone through my. Big Balloons. So she she got in trouble for like fighting, allow false testimony in which which put somebody in jail for a double homicide when they were actually innocent and then DNA, evidence came out the. Thinks she was like a big proponent of like three strike law that. Would somebody in jail for the rest of their life even when they were had like to police witnesses say they were free And then most recently I think she got in trouble for..

"kamala harris" Discussed on CNN's The Daily DC
"The first conversation between Joe Biden and Kamala Harris as the Democratic nominee offered the California senator the running mate slot on his ticket. We'll discuss that today plus. How are the Republicans and the trump campaign dealing with the Harris pick how they framing the argument against her And finally, their first public event. What does the Biden Harris Ticket look like? Hello everyone. David Chalian the CNN, political director this is the daily DC. So the history is clear Kamala. Harris is a barrier breaker in terms of being the first black woman the first Indian American woman on the ticket for a major party's presidential nomination team. It isn't just historic because of her race or gender though it is that, but it is an American story as Harris will tell you I went back to listen to her very first day on the presidential campaign trail in twenty nineteen when she launched her presidential campaign and she was asked at her first press conference do identify as African American do identify Indian American and her answer was identify as an American. And it is that quintessential American story being the daughter of immigrants that is going to be woven into all of her high profile moments. In this campaign, a vice presidential running mate has three major moments in the public eye. If all goes well, sometimes they can have more if it doesn't go well. The rollout which we are now a day into and so far seems to be a pretty successful one. We'll see as the days ahead emerge with more and more scrutiny for her. You have the convention speech that's coming next Wednesday night so In preparation mode for that, and then you have the debate that you'll have with Mike Pence in October those are the moments and in those moments, Kamala Harris will no doubt tell her deeply American story and one other thing? Kamala Harris is going to have to figure out as how to best be deployed in the covert era of a campaign normally a high profile surrogate. That's what the number two person is and you would go all over the country but with travel basically removed from the equation, no rallies how does the Biden team use Kamala Harris Day in and day out in a virtual campaign world to accomplish the electoral goals they want to accomplish. A couple of other things to watch with cholera Harris now on the ticket one, how is Donald. Trump and his campaign and the Republicans are they framing the argument around her again this is going to be a race between Donald Trump and Joe Biden we're talking a lot about Karma Harris in these hours after her announcement as the VP pick but four, the most part American voters are not going to really consider Mike Pence or Kamala Harris for Kamala. Harris to be probably the most expected pick Biden was going to make for five months of his process of deliberation the Republicans the president his campaign seems a little slow out of the gate settling on a frame it seemed A. Bit Scattershot, get the president using that derogatory term he loves to use for women specifically women of Color Nasty at his press conference yesterday that certainly doesn't seem like that's going to hold all that. Well, you had this notion of trying to call her phony Kamla that somehow because she ran against Joe Biden and now she's on the ticket. She's a phony, just a finger in the wind politician of course, George H W Bush was running against Ronald Reagan but he joined his ticket Joe Biden Against Barack. Obama. But he joined his ticket we've seen that time and again in American history. So I'm not sure that will hold. It seems today the Republicans are settling on Kamala Harris is. That is now the bucket they're using the throw all the Comma Harris oppo into this notion that's she's extreme and that she is GonNa Push. Joe. Biden too far left. I'm not sure that's going to work for them because she spent the bulk of her presidential campaign fending off criticism from the left. And finally, today the first time you see the presidential nominee with their vice presidential running mate. It's always a moment to note, take stock of take a look at the body language. The chemistry are they gelling together? Well, this first event between Biden and Harrison Wilmington. Delaware. Today, we'll be first clues into what this newly formed bond and relationship will look like however it's unlike any other before. It because of the covert era so even their first joint appearance is going to have to navigate social distance guidelines and other matters that may make assessing their chemistry, their body language together all that more difficult though it is certainly a sign of the Times of how this partnership is being formed in this totally unprecedented era of presidential politics give listen to the Biden Harris ticket in Wilmington today. By fellow Americans. Let me introduce to you. For the first time. Your next. Vice. President. United States. Kamala. Harris. Kamla. Floors Yours. As?

Over here on this format. So with that being said, just like to welcome everybody to the show, we appreciate it. We're just now getting this show up and running over here on podcast mode. Because we've been so busy. We've been trying to get the channel up on. facebook because there's so much to talk about and with this election being so important we've really been working hard to make sure that we get. Everything going away supposed to. And So I mean I I it's just been like nonstop recording and trying to make things happen. But the reason I wanted to jump on here, real quick and make a quick segment. Is Because of the new vice president. Pick. From Joe Biden who is none other than Kamala? Harris. And She is. About as far left I think is you'd WanNa go and SBN pretty much far right or at least Republicans over here. On a political analytical. This. Could this is a very bad thing and we really don't want to see her in Jalan Biden for that matter. But if y'all remember back in the day. In twenty, nineteen believe. When Biden was accused of rape by. Some women. She was very quick to say that she believes those women. And that she feels that Joe Biden did everything that those women said. That he did to to them. Now all of a sudden that she was picked for vice president. It seems like all that's gone away in. It's all. Okay. Now. Why is all that? Okay now, but it wasn't back then. this lady has no morals. She has no work ethics. She stands by none of her convictions. She is. A terrible woman. Who is being pup? It'd. By the big state. She's being puppet it by. The far left she's being puppet it by. ANTIFA. She's being puppet it by BLM. And she is nothing but a puppet on a string along with Biden. If these to get in, we're looking at the United States never ever. Being the same again. This is a terrible terrible woman. and has no business being vice president. Not to mention the fact that she's not qualified. She is not qualified to be the vice president of the United States sure. She's got law degrees and as a lawyer or Anything dealing with law enforcement. Yeah. She's pretty well equipped but to be vice president of the United States, she is not equipped. and. She has no training no schooling. She's got very limited time within. The Democratic Party she has very little time in any type of politics doesn't know how to handle anything that's happening and she's going to be a puppet. And I don't think any of us want to see the United States crumble. Because we have somebody that has no experience within the United States I mean, it's just. It's really mind boggling. And I hope and pray that everybody gets out and votes that supposed to. Because there's so much happening in so much bad going on that I'm honestly afraid. That it's going to get worse and it's going to get to the point where. Our taxes are going to be so high. We won't even be able to afford our own homes. We won't be able to afford to live not to mention how much taxes are going to be put on. All our checks. And she's also a Antigun. I guarantee you. If Biden, in her get in, they're going to do everything they can to abolish the second amendment. And our constitution little by little it's going to be shaved away and who knows what we're going to end up with. She's four. defunding the police. She referred to all the police officers as KKK. I mean, these are things that we really need to think about it's true Americans. Because if she takes over, it's going to be a very, very bad deal. Over here It says on Fox senator. Kamala Harris. who was officially announced as Joe Biden's running-mate Tuesday. Has Switched her stance on multiple issues throughout her time in public life beginning as a local prosecutor in the early two thousands. Those physicians are now back in the spotlight as the trump campaign tries to tag her as phony, which she is. This is one phony lady. And the newly named Democratic ticket prepares to present a united and consistent message. Going into next week's national. Convention. Now Chris Wallace says Kamala Harris doesn't do any harm to Biden's chances of. Winning the election. however, Harris change of heart covers issues like whether the government should abolish private health insurance. Whether recreational marijuana should be legalized in more such switches have invited criticism in the past from both the left and the right with Republicans labeling her as a radical. And members of more progressive wing of the Democratic Party accusing her of not being liberal enough. So they're gonNa Start Molding her pretty much to the way they want her. I mean it's you can tell that this is not a woman that Dick's by anything let it's going to benefit hurt. If sled say for instance. Let's say that she didn't want to abolish health insurance. She's GonNa say that she does now. Because that's what they wanted to say data going to be something that's going to help her. The heck. With all of us I mean we don't matter. We, have American citizens do not matter. what matters to her is her. And even.

Bring that Lolo, Jones Olympics she was at the Biracial athlete and I just watched the recent documentary. She's like hair Brown. By racial now, shing there you go. There's Lolo Jones Olympics now let's look at Lolo Jones today. I don't know if we can find a picture of a little today she looks like she's picking up a Pumpkin Spice Latte, and my point is that's that's Oh Yeah. Totally. Different person. Her playboy. Side to that Coin Kamala Harris could do the same to use it. All right. Here's another issue. As a prosecutor, we're talking about black lives matter in the riots, the violent riots. She kept inmates jailed for longer to use them as cheap labour. She supported the death penalty, which may surprise people and she incarcerated over fifteen hundred people for marijuana offenses. So if we're talking about moving the needle forward for the heads who just WanNa get blitzed she too is not your candidate can you explain to this this to people who may not be up on the the nerdiness of the the prison sentences yeah. I mean, I think that the basic scenario there was that nonviolent offenders were supposed to be eligible for parole after serving half their sentence because if got crowded prisons CETERA and she wanted to keep him in to use for cheap labor. So essentially another. A. Another form of slavery. Right you. Might say yeah she's she's continuing the tradition goes to groups of people. I mean. What's interesting about that is that traditionally you're going to see at least even with trump you've seen a lot of attacks about him being the law and order president and right kind of you know doing not not that actually it was twenty as he even he doesn't do that. Right? Right you know he's not well, he did the was it the What was your name? Alice. Marie Johnson. and His his first step act was actually one of the first steps towards changing the laws on harsh sentences for nonviolent offenders. Right. But at that time, the laws were the laws the judges need to do. They need to do the only one who really had a lot of discretion. Certainly, judges had some with regards to evidence or you know sentencing, but it came down to the prosecutors. It came down to the district attorney for the city San Francisco and what they were doing and how they decided to not only bring cases but what sentences they were asking for..

That's a quality program. You can here few years fastback. was. Not. Really a fast fact. It's just a it's just a fact. She is a descendant of slave owners. Kamala Harris. Here's the thing that's awkward. What is Now, I'm arresting registering as it. Can we verify this and I went to snow pts and snow pts? You know they really WanNa. Save false though. And they said unverified well, do you think that would apply that same standard to someone else if it was, let's say Donald Trump's father wrote in two thousand eighteen and op Ed bragging that he was a slave owner I have a quote right here. My roots go back within my lifetime to my paternal grandmother Miss Christie Christina Brown to Senate of Hamilton Brown who is on record as plantation and slave owner and founder of Brownstown that's almost as bad as white settlement yes. which is an actual city he was out there bragging about it the data about slavery. So can we verify not exactly but we know that Kamala Harris hasn't denied it. And even? Your guess is as good as mine will I. Guess as good as her dad's I'm willing to bet he did at twenty three and me ancestor dot. com. So. Proud. She's proud of his love it. Accuse people of being tone deaf because you're white.

Hey, you know what Mr You might want to re highlights portions and read. That's the best part promote these subservience. Yeah I worked so hard. That's what we want. Also that I did the tanker commercial that's just not do that because they no longer Wanna be associated with this. So here's something that is important to me. We look at everything through the Lens of identity politics. Kamala Harris obviously, she's a wealthy person. She was rate she jamaica right. Slave owner, that's the ancestry. So are we going to argue that Kamala Harris coming here to the United States has faced the same kind of discrimination or or systemic racism that African Americans are claiming experience, and here's also the problem with that. Let's take it a step further because they say you have white privilege you have well, really Asian privileged not to that's the thing because of Harvard and Brown. We're better. Yeah. That is. It's genetics. Everyone gets incoming genetics talk about Asians or better but they. Do. Better. Right I mean we're taking over. The years like nineteen, billion of them. I. Don't know why. But your people are fertile bill. You look at them wrong to get pregnant. So you want to say we're going to read a lady who came from Jamaica. The descendant of slave owners has it worse off than let's say someone from West Virginia, who is not the descendants of slave owner was raised in poverty. You know what? Let's use I'll use myself as a very specific example because we assume that all white Americans are the beneficiaries of slavery in to some degree or another and that black people today today in two thousand twenty are somehow still feeling those systemic effects and that may be true in some scenarios in my..

But they are actually going to be together in person tomorrow they'll deliver remarks at an event near Biden's longtime home in Wilmington Delaware.

General. Bill Bar, following the release of the Miller report. Attorney John Bar has the president or anyone at the White House ever asked or suggested that you open an investigation of anyone. I wouldn't I wouldn't a yes or no. Question I will repeat it has the president or anyone at the White House ever asked or suggested that you open an investigation of anyone yes or no please sir.

Mean there have been discussions of matters out there that. They have not asked me to open investigation. Perhaps they've suggested I know I wouldn't say suggests hinted. I Dunno inferred. Okay. Senator Harris is obvious tough talking skills were also on display during her run for president when she and Joe Biden where opponents most notably with this exchange at NBC's primary debate last June. I'm GonNa now direct this at Vice President Biden. I. Do not believe you are a racist and I agree with you when you commit yourself to the importance of finding common ground. But. I also believe and it is personal and I was actually very it was hurtful. To hear you talk about the reputations of two United States senators who built their reputations and career on the segregation of race in this country, and it was not only that, but you also worked with them to oppose busing.

"This is like a tributary grandparents though, isn't it? Memories On my God I mean you know listen, it's. I mean it's in all cultures, but I. I was speak of what I know and I mean the importance of children. And nurturing children, you know and being you know I wrote a books. Just, after my mother passed away, I've written two books down the one I wrote back when she passed away and I dedicated it to her. I said I've never known anyone. Who is? Tougher smarter and more loving than my mother. And you know all of those things exist in one person in into a certain extent it. It was cultural to she was now. It's it's always a risk when we're. We're learning our culture primarily through our parents, and then they leave some stuff out, you know. Kind of made to look a little silly. Sometimes I used to think everything that was Chinese was Taiwanese because my mom's Taiwanese and she claimed that olive. Chinese culture was Taiwanese culture so I grew up with that Nice blindspot We can't let you go without asking the question on everyone's mind, which is if given offer you know? Do you want to be Joe Biden vice-president? If I was asked course I'd be honored to be asked and would say but I will tell you the really. The most important thing is that he wins I. I cannot stress that enough in listen. When we talking about the API community, it is the fastest growing I believe community in the country in terms of ethnic groups. And there is so much at stake in this election when you talk about everything from how we how serious there will be taking hate crimes, and do we have an attorney? General of the United States who takes these kinds of things seriously in bill bar trump's attorney general we have, and before that under jeff sessions. Who was the first Attorney General Under Donald? Trump they are no longer really enforcing consent decrees where courts have found the there needs to be reformed because of discrimination and. Force they're no longer engaging in significant pattern and practice investigations of discrimination by police departments You can look at it in terms of what's happening with immigration and my God. We're and by the way it is everyone it is. It is our Latino. Brothers and sisters are Asian brothers and sisters. It is people arriving from African continent from the Caribbean. Who are the child's separation policies? How even moral can that be A president of the United States was calling the Wuhan Virus. which is what is precipitated. The kind of hate crimes were seeing in particular guest. Chinese Americans. Are those perceived to be China's Americans. We can look at what's at risk. In terms of the weather. We're going to have a country with a leader who is spending fulltime, trying to so hate and division or a leader who's trying to unify build our country. So all of that is at stake, and this is it is, it is not even subtle. It is very real. It is very apparent. This stuff is banging on our door in terms of the issues that we can actually impact, when and if we evil and so I just want to stress to everyone. You must vote and do not be afraid and make sure that voices are counted. Make sure that your candidate in the Census and the twenty twenty cents is, but there's so much at stake for all communities, and in particular for for for communities who have often been overlooked, had been dismissed or ignored or marginalized.

"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..

"My family's from south, India, so the language languages, Tamil, but they also for most of her life lived in Bombay and Delhi, so she's Hindi and all and earn. Do but I will tell you that probably many kids I learned with great acuity words of affection and words of frustration. Of course that just is about mother-tongue, right the words that you speak to your children that are words about deep love, and the words that are utter frustration. Just come out in your mother tongue so i. know those words you can always tell a lot about people by their grandmother's language. They learned the only words I know are like I'm full and I'm hungry so. And my grandmother's language so, but 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 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.

"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.

Kamla Harris is an open born Howard educated lawyer legislator former district attorney of San Francisco and Attorney General of California in Twenty Twenty Democratic presidential candidate. She is the daughter of immigrants who met during the civil rights era Berkley Hello Bay area shout out Bay area and her mother's from Indian. Her father's from Jamaica so welcome to Asian enough senator. It's great to be with you so I'm going to take. Take the first question, and we're just GONNA. Jump right into it so in your memoir. You talked about how your mother made. Conscious choices about raising you and your sister is black woman, though with strong and unquestionable connections to Indian culture. How did she do that? Tell us more about that. Well, so I mean it's complicated, and and probably a lot deeper more complex than we have time for, but I'll try You know she arrived in the US. When she was nineteen years old. She was the eldest of my grandparents. Children and you know an Asian cultures that. She wanted to become a scientist. She wanted to cure cancer, so she went to her father as the eldest child, and it set up by WANNA. Go and I study in what is considered to be one of the best schools for science. I WANNA go to UC Berkeley, and Mike Grandfather it now. This is his eldest daughter, and this is in the late nineteen fifties. Said okay. Follow your dreams. He was very progressive. So my mother flew this. When transient ENA national flights were really very rare, and she arrived in Berkeley California alone. And began her studies, and because my grandfather was really an advocate for India's independence, he was really a extraordinary person, and really always fighting for democracy. And Justice and so immediately. Then of course, my mother was naturally attracted to the civil rights movement that was blossoming or occurring in the bay area and Met My father, and so instead of going back to India had been the plan to have you know what would have been an arranged marriage? She met my father and had a love marriage, and that through my sister and me and my mother understood you know she was just conscious of race. She understood what these things meant. And she knew that in America that her daughters would be treated as for better and for worse as black women and black. Black children and she raised us with a sense of pride about who we were who we are, but never with a false choice, right? It was never to the exclusion of of always also being very proud and very active in terms of our Indian culture as well, but she and she understood what America was at the time, and who America is, and and the struggles that people face in America, and so that's that's it in a nutshell. But there were never any false choices you know. We grew up in the black community and learned that you can cook Okra with mustard seeds, or with dry shrimp in and spicy sausages. Did you learn any of those recipes you. Did you keep any of those? You know my will, so I mean? My mother was an extraordinary cook, and as was my grandmother, my aunt, my. Is the. It's the name for your. Your mother's younger sister basically means younger mother, and she thankfully still with us. She and she's a great cook. Indian cooking is very complicated. It's like a lot of Asian cooking. There are a lot of different spices and she was such a good cook, and my aunt is such a good cook so I never really had to learn how to make Indian food, but I have been slowly teaching myself how to do that. But my mother was also. She loved good foods, so she would make. Incredible Italian meals. She would make you know I. Remember US making bows and. Tons I. Remember s making you know. She loved to make barbecue. It was just it was a ECLECTIC, but I think it was just was a very universal I in many ways she loved cultures, and and and she loves to cook. She sounds really fascinating and I want to also ask about your grandma India. I'm told that she was somewhat of a an advocate for access to birth control and an activist. Well Nigh Grandmother was so my grandmother had an arranged marriage. She was married at a very young age. To my grandfather, but then I started living with him when he was, she was older and. I don't think she graduated High School I. Don't know, but my grandmother was one of the smartest people you have ever met. And she knew everything about politics. She Nuba Policy and she was. That, she was a force a force in the context of our family in the context of her community, and she was the person who would take in everything from. She would feed the stray dogs to to take it to fight for women's rights to fight for you know whatever fight against whatever she thought was unfair and. and. This is just who she was. She was a protector. My Grandmother, really when it comes down to what was it just a protector, she? She always protected people that she felt needed to be protected. I'm so curious also in terms of language. You know you'd go to visit your family or extended family in India as a child and elsewhere like your grandfather was stationed in Zambia but In terms of the language. Did you take any of that with with you? Does your family speak Tom I think? Who Baby I mean sadly I didn't learn. I did not ever become fluent in the language..
