"Through the full hour ba talking to two of the candidates running to be the men or the people who watch over the city's billions of dollars in spending an assets and debt people running for the job of city comptroller as i mentioned at the outset. We're talking about Who we're going to trust to keep watch over. The city's billions of dollars. The city's number three job is that of city comptroller and sure it sounds boring. Nobody grows dreaming to be controller. But i've often thought that it's about the best job in the city because of the kind of vast powers has that particular kinds of authorities and interest the comptroller can exercise so the comptroller is like the city's official accounted he or she can audit all the agencies in the city of remember the agencies in the city. Spend some eighty eight billion dollars a year. So that's a lot to audit. Those audits can raise. Financial questions can also raise policy questions about you. Know the efficiency and effectiveness of the steps that the city is taking. It's an important very important check on the mayor's power in that way the comptroller also registers contract so as you know a lot of the city's work is not done by but by contractors whether it's human services or building a road or doing consulting work to figure out how the board of elections run better. Or what have you and those contracts total seventeen billion dollars a year seventeen thousand contracts. The controller can register those or not register. Those can block contracts to a degree. That's a tremendous amount of power also overseeing. The city's pension funds the five funds for police and firefighters and teachers and everybody else together compose one of the largest investment funds in the world has a lot of power as an investor deduce shareholder activism Divests from something like firearms or tobacco or fossil fuel related industries. It's a big deal. That's twenty five billion dollars under control in the comptroller's day to day. Overseer of those has a lot to do with the priorities that those pension funds pursue economic forecasting managing the debt if more than seven hundred employees and he operated big policy shop to recent lists of weighed in a different policy issues suggested plans for housing for childcare for dealing with homelessness. You name it of the council is in a position to make those suggestions and frankly not actually execute them. Because they're not. The mayor said they get to kind of sit back. And critique and suggest improvements and use the power of the city's pursestrings to achieve his or her own policy ends And that's a reason why the job is coveted by many people who are seeking a step up from the city council or borough presidency or other offices and it's also why many people who seek that office end up becoming mayor or running for mayor a beam was a comptroller Jay golden who ran for mayor. Alan have the see bill thompson and of course the current comptroller scott stringer's running for mayor the only one in that mix who did not was halston and she ran for the. Us set it. So that's pretty important office too so it say A big big job and an important one and one of the jobs that is on the docket for twenty twenty. One scott stringer as i mentioned running for mayor that's because he is term limited and so there are four people in the race as of now democratic primary in june which as you know in many races in new york city is tacit election. We don't know if there will be republican race if they did run. It's unlikely they would have much of a chance of winning. But the people will be hearing from today. Our senator kevin parker of brooklyn and city council member. Brad lander also of brooklyn They are joined in the race. By state senator bryan benjamin and has been david weapon. Those two candidates have been booked for our show on january twenty seven so two weeks from today and we'll be hearing from them then and obviously next week on the twentieth. Focusing more on inauguration stops which hopefully it will be peaceful and smooth. But we'll be ready for whatever comes our way. So we're hearing from senator kevin parker He is a democrat. He's represented the twenty first district in brooklyn since two thousand three so a veteran of albany veteran of the years too many years in the wilderness when democrats were in the minority than briefly in the majority Particularly well Back the minority now. Of course our very strong and fairly progressive supermajority in the state senate but kevin parker's looking to leave office and become the city's number three official. He is the chairman of the committee on energy and telecommunications and we'll be hearing a few moments switching to get him on the phone. Kevin parker senator from brooklyn is on the line. So welcome to maximum murphy. Hey mackey murphy you just murphy today but thanks for how are you. I'm good glad to hear that Let's dig into a den because we don't have too much time with you and it's a big job and he's got a lengthy career lot to dig into You are a state senator. You have been for many years. What do you feel about this job of comptroller. Do you feel it requires a set of qualifications. Different from other offices foam from being a mayor. Desert require some level of financial savvy. And that's something you bring to the table. Yeah you know a number of years. I've actually been in the state. Senate eighteen years. And i'm the majority whip involved the seminar energy and communications committee and i absolutely think that being city controller does bring a responsibility around a specific set of understanding about finances and and and you know understanding of finances the municipal finance her particular. Anybody who knows finance necessary understand municipal finance You know before. I got elected to the state senate work for paying whatever Doing both government affairs and ms will finance worked worked in the state office. Macomer call As that'd be direct their government affairs. And since i've been in state senate. I've been eighteen years in the finance committee Over ten years on the banking committee the insurance committee and so the issues around revenue. Projections around auditing Around managing the pension fund. Things that in my wheelhouse talk about your time in albany as you mentioned almost two decades much of that time in the minority when obviously it was difficult i'm sure to get legislation passed but when you look at your time there. What do you see as your top accomplishments. Well what do we begin right. i think i think some of it has been you know my top accomplishment the political accomplishments. I'm i'm part of literally. Four people whipped. I've been on the minority. The majority and i think that political understanding Of what it takes to us tweet place where people thinking leading into. When i got elected you know eighteen years ago of senator. You're fading in and out a bit. i don't know if you're if you're traveling or donna. Our end center we may have lost the senator.

"I love you. Pull that out. I too when I was listening to this song was thinking about post Malone and realizing I think a lot of the sort of phrasing that is really popular and melodic structure which is popular right. Now we actually a lot to tame impala when you get these sort of internal small melodies that repeat again and again and again and you can hear that in team impala you can hear that post Malone you can hear that in so many other artists hundred percent. I don't think it's I mean even relate back to the smaller attention span. We're getting worse. We're going to have a three minute song. Few a few melodies that change in the keeps your interest the whole time if show. I was really surprised to hear from Kevin Parker who in a conversation with TV did refer to his. Music is absolutely pop up that you want it to be very very pop. I mean I've always my music to be really so I think that it doesn't matter what sounds you're using if you're starting with. Hook I or the first or how you're structuring song. It feels like what matters is sort of the intent and the intent is for people to love this to dance to groove to it and I think it's succeeding on that level. One hundred percent. I think even the I mean obviously has the eighties influenced since it's definitely unique one hundred percent. There's no doubt about that but it's it's popular music by definition he plays arenas does very well so I would call that popular. Music hundred percent shouldn't be negative. I feel like right on. Yeah it's like you know. I think his strategy is get that rhythm. Get that groove going and then you can kind of start to sprinkle some weird stuff on top and people won't mind as long as as long as they're feeling the groove you know you can get away with like he's got some flute and pizzicato strings in here..

There's also a TV personality some rock band member. And it looks like it's they're just saying here sexually explicit videos of women that were filmed without their knowledge or consent. So I don't know if that means somebody set up a secret camera will they were boning someone and then they're sharing it amongst this group of ten but they're in. They're in trouble. The people who are on the chat. I don't know if any BT Esca, I'm just gonna assume they're the only k pop band I can name.

"And speaking of the slippery slope. We spoke last time. About. Let's see here yet the social media accounts. Little update on that story. The democrat Senator Kevin Parker who represents book Brooklyn, New York is wanting the social media accounts to be monitored in in investigated before you're able to purchase a firearm. A little update on that a Senator Kevin Parker was recently into a Twitter conversation with someone where he encouraged them to go kill themselves. He disagreed with whatever they were discussing, and he suggested that this GOP supporter go kill themself. So right, then. And there if Mr. Parker's social media investigations were in place, I'm pretty sure that would probably classify some sort of hate speech or or bullying cyberbullying or something that he would not be able to purchase a firearm. According to. His own suggested Bill. To look over your social media accounts. So, you know, Mr. Parker, you might want to practice what you preach there. And maybe you don't need to encourage people to kill himself. That's a very serious situation where you'd make light of it in the conversation on Twitter is probably probably not the smartest thing.

This is this is just a state probably make do. All right. All right, especially New York. In any case. He is getting a lot of backlash over something that he tweeted to a colleague of a female colleague. There was actually a tweet from Chesney parks that name is not important that person is not necessarily a person of significance that person was very upset because there was a blockage of a bike lane in New York, and they took a picture of the car that was blocking that bike lane and got the license plate. And then a colleague of Senator Kevin Parker's got to the bottom of who had the license plate and lo and behold it belonged to Kevin Parker. So she called him out on the Twitter machine. Yeah. So and not only that but the license plate on that particular car didn't match the car. So he either used it in another car gave it to someone else. This like plate that allowed him to be there. I don't know if it was like, a handicapped, tag, or what in any case, he should not have been using it. And because she called him out in a public way his response on. Twitter was to say kill yourself. Okay. Yeah. You can't do that. Well, I mean, you shouldn't do that. If you're just a regular everyday walking around person people do that all the time on Twitter Twitter is just it's just a cesspool of sock. You know, it is, but this guy, but this guy is a Representative of the people of the people, right know, he's Brooklyn Democratic Party guy. Right. No. He probably should not have said that to one of his house, and he does she a colleague people. He shouldn't have done that. And so he did because it's not like, she said anything nasty. She was just saying listen straight up. This is who it belongs to something. Shady take care of it take care of your business. And you know, some some people suggested even one of our writers chicks on the right dot com. Who wrote about this like if you are mad, you could say delete your count? You could say message me, privately you could say any number of things in response to that. Fear Representative you probably shouldn't even do that. At all. I mean, maybe like we'll handle this. Offline right. Maybe don't say kill yourself how quickly so naturally people went after him and said that he should resign. And so he apologized by saying, I sincerely apologize. I used a poor choice of words got suicide is a very serious thing. And should not be made light of. I mean, how many times have we heard this? I use a very poor choice. Let's. And if the roles if if this is a Republican, do you think that people would be as forgiving again, and people aren't necessarily forgiving him like some people are like it's too late. You don't have the temperament or maturity, and hold office pack, your bags someone else that I think the apology came from a place of self preservation rather than sincerity did. Yeah. I mean, he's apologizing because he he knows he screwed up, of course. But does that. So does that mean all is forgiven or does that mean because people are still calling for him to resign? Not gonna resign. He's gonna resign. No said, I'm sorry. But seriously kill yourself. This is exactly what he's thinking. Exactly. That's exactly right. You guys if you're looking to Donald Trump to stick to his guns about shutting down the government and being proud of it. And owning it in order to get the five billion for the wall. I just don't think you should hold your breath on that. It's not looking good. It's not looking good. And in fact on top of it, not looking good. The US has just pledged ten point six billion dollars in aid for Central America and southern Mexico. So not only are we not getting money from. You know from congress. We're not getting an authorization of funds from congress to build the wall. We're actually saying, hey, here you go countries down there. Here's a pile of money here. This kind of aggravating. You look a little frustrating. I'm frustrated. Well, Trump is tweeting this morning. About this very thing. But let's I guess I can see where we we spend so much money on legal immigration every single year. Right. We spent like one hundred and thirty five billion, then we on the people that we know about every single year so ten point six billion for them to get their act together when it's not really aren't response. No. And that's just because this is this is all about promoting better security conditions and job opportunities there there because they can't get their act again. Right. When is it our responsibility to pay for that country and the people in that country? I if it keeps them from flooding our border, I guess, okay. It's just gonna keep them from doing that. That's the question. Right. Is it? Well, it's supposed to be for economic development. And then on top of that. I guess the long term plan is that that's where the on button is okay. The long term plan is to actually raise a total twenty five billion dollars, which is actually coincidentally enough. The estimated total cost to build the wall along the southern border. I mean, one of the great negotiator. People are mad. I'm very frustrated with this. And then according to this this AP article, there was a line in it that really stuck out to me that said it was unclear if Mexico would give anything in return, and I'm like, yeah. What are we doing this? Why we hired you for for for this? Yeah. So here's what Trump has been tweeting since about thirteen hours. Go all the way up until about forty minutes ago. He's been busy. He said, the Democrats are saying loud and clear that they don't want to build a concrete wall. But we're not building a concrete wall. We're building artistically designed steel slaps. So that you can actually or you can easily see through it. It will be beautiful and at the same time give our country the security that our citizens deserve. It will go fast and save us billions of dollars a month once completed I mean, that's all fine for him to say it, but we actually need to do it. He then said America's the greatest country in the world. And my job is to fight for all citizens, even those who have made mistakes. Congratulations to the Senate on the bipartisan passing of the historic criminal Justice reform Bill which by the way did pass. And that's great. And that's off the top. Yeah. Wonderful. Okay. Let's move on. Okay. So moving onto back to the border staff. He said two hours ago in our country so much money has been poured down the drain for so many years. But when it comes to border security in the military, the Democrats fight to the death. We won on the military, which is being completely rebuilt one way or the other. We will win on the wall. So forty five minutes ago, he then said, Mexico is paying indirectly Florida wall. Yeah. For the wall through the new US MCA the replacement for NAFTA far more money coming to the US because of tremendous dangers at the border, including large-scale criminal and drug inflow. The United states' military will build the wall. No, I yeah. I'm just not. I'm not seeing he's going to he's going to have to explain that. He's got some splitting. I mean, this is just nuts. We'll that's the part where he said it was going to be beautiful and very artistic. It's gonna. He's a workshop. I hear ya sign bell. The thing is as long as as long as people can't jump over it, right? Yeah. Or crawl under it or get around at exactly it just needs to be a wall. I don't care. What it looks like? Yeah. But I don't like seeing these headlines. Where it's you know, the whole it's unclear if Mexico's gonna give anything in return, right? You know, because when people say the word awful were not charitable, we are giving and giving and giving it is not my responsibility to pay for people in Mexico as a tax as an American taxpayer. That's not my responsibility. I did not sign up for that. That's not what my tax dollars should be going towards sorry. Yeah. And everybody should be limited about this, y'all. Stay with us..
"kevin parker" Discussed on Talk Radio WPHT 1210
"Mason next generation of talk talk radio twelve ten WPA. Only. Reggie says it's time to legalize marijuana. What will the taxes on it be? Will they be enough to cover the fifteen dollars an hour? Minimum wage and New York says you want a gun. Here's your Twitter password. Welcome back to the show. Glad you're here. The only show on Twitter at rich eight five five nine twelve ten mazing to me, you talk about freedom and liberty. This is the kind of stuff a local story. It's in New York state. But I guarantee it's going to come to a theater near you, very soon kids. Fox News reports this story out of New York state Senator Kevin Parker. We've got a Bill in New York calling for all gun. Licence applicants to let the government review their social media posts going back three years and their internet searches going back one year. Imagine that you gotta turn over to the government your password, and they'll look for things such as racial slurs. Look, I racial slurs in my mind, they're awful. There's no question about that. But should I should that mean, you don't have the right to enjoy your constitutional rights because you use racial slurs? I in the first amendment protected, racial slurs advocating racial slurs. I think they're horrific, but I'm saying that's the right protected by the first amendment. Why don't you do that? Why don't you look through their social media history? And if they espouse racial views take away their first amendment rights. Right. If they say these things on Twitter and Facebook deny them their first amendment rights, meaning jail them for what they say. Oh, they would love to. Now. There's nobody nobody wants hate speech laws more than a leftist trust me on this point. They would love hate speech laws. They would love it. Kevin Parker says it goes any good cause for the denial of a license racial slurs threats of violence and terrorism related posts. I yeah. Okay. What if you've got threats of violence and terrorism related post? I got a bigger question. Why is this day and age of mass surveillance? Do they not know about this already? You know, if you're on Facebook or Twitter, and you're threatening people you're threatening terrorism. And he's other things why why does this not get red flagged as somebody? Why doesn't Facebook and Twitter red flag? Why are you still on Facebook and Twitter is my question? But the bill's sponsor Senator Senator Kevin Parker has a history of his own legal skirmishes, he was convicted in twenty ten of roughing up in your poster offer big fan of the first amendment this guy. Obviously, right state Senator. Kevin parker. Hey, a beat up a New York Post photographer and allegedly give the same to a traffic agent in two thousand five but avoided punishment by greenshoe undergo anger management training. So now, he takes out his anger, and aggression on the constitution. In addition government records cited by the New York Post in two thousand seventeen indicated Parker owed more than fifty thousand dollars in property taxes and water bills. He said, I need a raise. I'm considering becoming an Uber driver upstate. He said he and his brother inherited properties and their tax burdens from their parents. Oh, you mean, you have to pay the taxes on land you inherited which is a problem for you. Now because it affects you personally, something that we've been talking about for years, and how people that inherit family farms and land often cannot pay the tax Bill on those properties. Now, it affects you, and you you suddenly give a damn say state Senator. Kevin Parker amazing as far as his background gun. Check bill. They would surrender their passwords or Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts and subject to scrutiny of their search histories on Google Yahoo and Bing. Yeah. Journal that over in order for you to exercise your second amendment rights. His proposal follow the Cobra twenty seven the massacre of the tree of life synagogue in Pittsburgh where the gunman allegedly posted antisemitic comments before killing eleven people. What about Louis Farrakhan? Does he loses second amendment rights or his goons that protect him given his antisemitic comments? Can we take away his guns? I know that he's got those bodyguards around him Louis Farrakhan has armed guards. Obviously he does. That's not a secret. Well, can we take away their guns? I mean, he's got a known anti Semite there with a long history. Call what do you call them recently cockroaches, called Jewish people cockroaches? So how come his goons get guns? So you see now what happens is you have to lose your liberty. And you gotta turn over your thoughts to the government. So they can review and then decide what what rights you're eligible to have only what the second amendment. They give this nonsense. There. It's just amazing to me. Because imagine if they said this well before you can become a journalist. You gotta turn over your social media passwords to us. We're going to see if you have bias receive your bias. And then if you if you show bias, we will give you a a certified licensed to become a journalist. That's how it will work. So give us your history of your social media posts and your Bing and Google search engine history. We'll look through it. And as long as we can tell no inherent bias. You will have the right to be a journalist under the first amendment of the constitution. How many members of the press would would be? And I'm not advocating that by the way. But imagine if somebody did. They would they would go crazy as they should because it's a freedom crushing idea. Liberty crushing idea. They go crazy, and they should but with the second amendment. They it seems reasonable to me that's perfectly reasonable turnover. Your thoughts you thought crime? Why not have listening devices people's homes? If you want a gun, you've got to suggest subject give all your Alexa, data to the government to show that they can find out if you've ever threatened your wife or your husband. If you're having an affair marital problems because we can't for domestic violence issues. So we'll turn over to Alexa, your whole everything. Alexa, will give it all up. Sorry. If I just triggered your echo. And then the government can review it and say, well, we think that your why not why not just get right to the chase. And invite the government into your home to monitor your actions twenty four seven why not just do that? And just skip right in front of the line. Since it's amazing. How we do this stuff in New York state. So it'll probably pass. I'm sure it'd be struck down. I hope as being on constitutional. I hope and I don't know. I don't know if you see because there are Obama judges in this country, despite what John Roberts said last week. There are Obama judges. There are liberal judges. There are judges in this country who do not believe the second amendment applies to individuals. There are absolutely liberal. Judges are absolutely conservative judges. The chief Justice is out of his mind to think that just because you get a robe you suddenly lose your political bias. That's the other thing. How about that? How about before you get to be a judge you turn over all of your social media post? So we can make sure you don't have political bias. You've got to look you've got to be impartial. When you rule on the constitution. So give us your social media history. So we can ensure that you don't have an opinion on these matters. So if you've ever posted something on abortion rights or gun rights or something we'll know we'll know. And then we'll be able to decide whether or not you have bias or not. And is it something when the government decides what biases right? They set the terms of that. Basic a terms of what they would red flag somebody losing their second rights. Now, if you're one of those wackos listens to talk radio have you talked about taking your government back, you take your country back those kind of things now what about Madonna when she talks about blowing up the White House and her arm security guards, they get to keep their guns. Well, that's just a twin isn't Madonna. It's how about Kathy Griffin with a head severed head. I assume she's got armed guards to to those bodyguards lose their guns because of her wacky Twitter. I don't know again, I wanna know how that works. There's a guy being investigated right now with the secret service. His name is Tom Arnold. He's a comedian. I don't really know how to describe him. He was on Roseanne data Roseanne. What are you live with married? Her tommorrow is being investigated by the service, his comments on social media. Does he does he have a gun? Does. He does he have a gun or does it what what's up with that? And if he doesn't I assume he's got a bodyguard if he does have a bodyguard. So crazy really is Andrew Cuomo says he's ruling out running for president in twenty twenty. He says it was never that Great America. And he's not going to run for president. So he said make America great again. Yeah. It was never that. Great salad stinks at this club. I got e-coli from your dirty romaine and honest, overcooked avail every single freaking time. Every time change chefs already. He's he's out. He's out. So that's it. He's not gonna run. And that's a that's a real shame. Because I was looking forward to him being interviewed by his brother, the lesser Cuomo and being asked a lot of tough questions. It actually the best part about that has been Andrew Cuomo goes on the lesser show. Chris Cuomo heat at Chris Cuomo doesn't get in a word. Andrew cuomo. Does takes over the show is his brother just sits there nods. His head. All right. Well, that's it. He's out. So there you go bad, Merrick is not that great. Let's face it. The parking stinks. I mean, I gotta drive my car around the block to three times they get a parking space in this country. It was never that. Great. I'll tell you one thing though, this cheesecake is great. That's the only thing the cheesecake, here's the best otherwise this country stinks. But the cheesecake is to die for try by this cheesecake, try this cheesecake, I write about that only the rest of the country was as good as cheesecake. But it wasn't that great. This cheesecakes could very very good eight five five eight three nine twelve ten. All right. We've got a lot to get to today. There's a there's a number of issues going on in New Jersey they want to legalize marijuana. Now. Look, I've always said this I'm fine with it. I don't have a problem with it. I think it's going to be inevitable down the road. Anyway. But what I think is fascinating is they're going to tax at twelve percent, right. Make sense, right? Why not tax at twelve percent? Where's the money? Go has anyone figured that out yet where the state of New Jersey is going to do with all that money has anyone figure that out as the raising tolls and fees and everything else at where is that twelve percent could go I imagine the government's gonna take a lot of money. I assume it's all going to go for the children. But just in case, it's not where is it going? That's what I need to know..
