Some coastal towns seeing 3 to 5 feet in storm surge, Craig Allen says. I say yes will make its way here by tomorrow. Two talks will continue today on Capitol Hill on another round of Corona virus relief funding negotiations had stalled over the weekend. One sticking point how long to renew this $600 a week enhanced unemployment benefit and three were continuing to see positive signs in the fight against Cove in 19 This weekend, Corona virus related deaths were down a single digits statewide hospitalizations down of the lowest numbers. We've seen him more than four months, but we're also seeing a surgeon cases all over the country, including in neighboring New Jersey. Governor, Cuomo says. If that keeps happening, school re openings could be put on hold about the parents being comfortable. Just because the school district says we're open does not mean students are going to go, he says.

The governor says about 50 out of the 700 school district statewide Still haven't turned in their proposals last week, the city roll now its plan to the public, but the governor says the district didn't officially file with the state.

"Good morning. I'm Kevin Ring Cone. Three things to know what, 8 45 1 protesters who had been camping out at City Hall were cleared out this morning by police. They moved in, and around 3 30 this morning. At least seven people were arrested. Cops say they intend on keeping that area locked down for cleanup could take weeks to later today, Governor Murphy will roll out the state school reopening plan. He offered a preview earlier in the week, saying there will be a mix of remote and in person learning and three a month ago, President Trump was advocating for packed rallies despite the Corona virus. Yesterday, he promoted the use of masks and social distancing. On the news line with a CBS White House correspondent, Steve importantly, Stephen. At one point, the president even acknowledged things we're going to likely get worse here. Yeah, worse before they get better and, you know, talk about social distancing. He says that six feet makes common sense to him. But maybe he should make things who may need a little bit further. Which is you know, Kevin is a far cry from what he was talking about a month ago ahead of his Tulsa rally when he talked about people standing shoulder to shoulder it packed rallies. The president yesterday seemed to acknowledge the reality, which is an implicit acknowledgement on the White House is part that For the last couple of months. He's not yesterday, He took Ah mask out of his pocket and says he has a mask right here, and he'll use it gladly, he says, even though recently he's only used it once, and that was that a visit about a week and 1/2 ago. Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, where he said it was an appropriate place to wear a mask. He was not wearing one when he went to an intimate fundraiser at his hotel down the street from the White House the other night, the president urged young people to avoid crowded bars. On and on the whole, he seemed to be espousing the advice of the experts. Even though he appeared at the podium solo last night for his 28 minute news conference, the 1st 1 focused on the cove it pandemic in three months. That's the health side of things. There's also the economic side. There's the issue of relief funding Republicans and Democrats, usually not an agreement. That's the case again. What's the president? Advocating for Well, What we have now is is a break between Republicans in Washington you have you have the president who wants to see a payroll tax holiday? That's the 6% tax that both employers and employees pay that from Social Security. The president believes that eliminating that tax will incentivize employers to begin hiring my filling jobs without having to pay that extra 6% tax to funds of security. The other Republicans, however, don't see that is necessarily the right way to go, and Democrats say that's fine for people who are working. But what about the millions who are not? There is disagreement between Democrats and Republicans on the size of a supplement to the weekly unemployment benefits that states of providing, remember it's been $600 a week. That's set to expire at the end of the month. There appears to be emerging consensus that some additional federal supplement has to be added on. But how big it looks like it'll be between two and $400 perhaps on the lower end of that range, And this is something that a Zeiss say the Republicans and Democrats don't see eye to eye on. But it appears necessary that the White House has been worried as as have many Republicans in Congress. And if you pad that unemployment check, it could be a disincentive for people who are looking for work that much. Rather, it seems This is the argument that much rather sit on the couch and collect checks, then go backto work where they might be making less money. Then collecting those bonus checks. One other point, Republicans on Capitol Hill are very interested in seeing some kind of liability protections for businesses. That doesn't seem to be a terribly controversial thing. Even the Democrats say they're not fully on board. With that they understand there are many Democrats who are mindful of the need for small businesses to have legal protections. A lot of moving parts that CBS White House correspondent Steve Important. Oi! It's 8 48 traffic.

"Politico congressional reporter Sara Farris book with Kevin ring, cone this afternoon? Seems like reaction has been really drawn along political party lines in both the house and Senate pretty much exactly what we would expect some credits in Republican Republicans on this after Muller statement. But basically his his couple of minutes. He spent talking to the media really left both parties wanting something different Democrats. They were looking for something more concrete. They wanted him to go further than he did in his nearly five hundred page report. And Republicans would have preferred that he did day that he could have exonerated the president. So there's a lot to take away, really have their own partisan views on this. A lot of congressional Democrats have been using that word the impeachment word, but leadership has been very short on that they've stopped short of using that word is there something else that congress could be doing in, in terms of reacting to the mall report when it comes to President Trump. Well. Speaker Nancy Pelosi have said that they want to keep investigating. They wanna use what Robert Muller, laid out as sort of a roadmap, and then the investigations from there, and so there are outstanding subpoenas in a whole array of different areas, including the president's personal finances, that includes his tax returns in. There's loans that he's received from Deutsche Bank that the subpoenas are still under process there. So there's a lot of different directions. The Democrats are looking to go expand beyond the scope of the report, there are some in the party that are growing. Listen. They want to see some action, they are facing a lot of pressure from the progressive base to really take some action against President Trump, as we approached the eighteen months market. And as we approach twenty twenty do we get a sense of how long some of these congressional investigations might take? It's not the administration hasn't necessarily been very forthcoming documents Democrats have been asking for no, the White House has said they're going to continue to stonewall with what documents with allowing witnesses to come and testify, the Democrats are hoping that they can get them of these facts, and documents and witnesses up on the hill in the next couple of months. They're really wary of doing anything overtly political in the year, twenty twenty that's of course, very close to the election. It's going to be very influential in shaping voters minds. And so with Nancy Pelosi looking to win over independence and particularly in particular which will be key to holding the house and delivering the, the White House Democrats next year. They don't wanna be roped into some of this. Impeachment talk investigation talking much rather be talking about healthcare.

Set you're going to be out of your little routine here set yourself up for success. Well, James harden last night had a huge night. He's on fiery scored forty game. He's the NBA's leading score. And last night. He just went crazy against Golden State was amazing. Oh my God. I can't believe it, and as general manager Darryl Maury who I had lunch with about a month ago. Who's one of the smart guys in sports who I really really like. And his words matter came out and said you could argue for him as the best offense of player of all time whole bunch of ways to measure it. But for me in the conversation as the greatest offensive player ever. Okay. Let's go back to set yourself up for success quarterbacks in two thousand nineteen twenty eighteen and shooters in the NBA. A are currently set up for success. Let me give you a football example. Now, we all like, Philip rivers. Right. We don't love him. But we like him. We're not sure he's a hall of Famer this year for the first time in his career. He set an NFL record completing twenty five straight passes the next night. Marcus mariota who the titans are about ready to ship out of town completed nineteen straight passes a month later career backup, Nick foles completed five straight passes. You think it's a coincidence. This year Kirk cousins this year more passing yards and more touchdowns by a mile over Troy Aikman. And that's an interesting one to think about because we know we know Kirk cousins is a stat monster, but he's not great in big games. Troy aikman. Didn't have the stats. But was great and big games. And I want you to remember the Kirk cousins Troy Aikman. Now. Let's talk about James harden. Daryl morey. He's the best ever. I'm not gonna compare to the best ever because that will be Michael, right? Y'all love Michael or wilt. Okay. I'm just going to compare them to one guy Koby Bryant as a score. So when you're a score does athleticism matter. Yes. Most of the great scores of all timing Wilt Chamberlain ran track could play beach volleyball Wilt Chamberlain. Lebron James, Michael Jordan could do athleticism matters. James harden? Athletically has to moves one of them is traveling Kobe Bryant was the NBA's Picasso like Phil Mickelson Gulf. He's the greatest shotmaker of all time. I'm not saying the best player, but Michael Jordan. Had stocked moves. So does LeBron James harden has to Kobe came down with a blank canvas? And just made it up athletically. It is not close, by the way. Does defense also exhibit an illustrate athletics. Awesome. Kobe all NBA first team defense nine times second team three times pardons, a defensive liability so athletically, and that matters as the greatest offensive player ever. It ain't close. Let's talk commitment. Does just commitment matter of your a great.

In Sweden drinks. The reason what's bad about sugar. Well, the increased calories from sugar lead to excess weight those extra pounds put New Yorkers and Americans generally at a higher risk for such health problems as diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, and stroke, bad news. Indeed, what kind of foods are they targeting targeting anything in particular? Well, that's a good question. And it has an interesting answer the initiative is targeting foods that are estimated to supply sixty percent of the sugar in our diets and Dr CDs bar, Bo, the New York City health Commissioner told me, obviously, they're looking at candies and sugary drinks, candy bars and the like, but listen to this. She says that barbecue sauce, for instance, is loaded with sugar and yogurts. Seen as a healthy food can have lots of added sugar. She says there is a lot of sugar that as she puts it is snuck into our diet rich the big question, of course, any idea food makers will go along with all this. Well, the grocery Manufacturers Association. Which is located down in Virginia indicates that its members already offer choices to consumers, and Dr Barbosa says the members of the initiative hope prepared food companies will reformulate existing products introduced new Windsor shift the sales emphasis at their current lines.

"The legacy of landmark opinions in the senses. Kevin ring. Kevin ring is also the president of families against mandatory minimums and author of sl said Scalia court and Kevin rang, welcome. I think for the first time to the Bill Cunningham show. Kevin how are you doing? Well, let's talk about before we talk about mandatory minimums, which by the way, I'm a criminal defense attorney, and I'm one hundred percent on your side on that issue. What Scalia say about what's happening? Do Brad Kavanagh? I would say I told you. So he would say when you make the supreme court a political body and the supreme court intervenes and a whole bunch of decisions that we used to leave leave to our democracy, our democratic institutions, then you shouldn't be surprised when nominees to the high court I get treated like politicians. And so that's what we're seeing here today. This is if they raw political move to say, we don't want him to be a supervisor Slater. Where does he stand on the issues? That's what support out whether ABA was right to consider him unanimously well qualified or whether he's had over a decade of service on the bench. But does he agree with me on ABC? And so, you know, we put yourself about ten years ago. I do the commencement speech. University of Toledo law school few months. Go by the dean gets a hold of man says Bill would you like to have dinner with a supreme court Justice? And I said, of course, so which one is it in the dean said to me or Bill, which one would you like to have dinner with said well. Well, I like to have dinner with Anthony Scalise said, bingo, he's gonna come into town Friday. He's going to speak here on Saturday. Could you meet us in a game me the location Emami texted it to me? I said Edina, I will be there. And so I get off the air about three PM. I drive to Toledo. Get there about six pull up to this little Italian restaurant. A mommy Ohio, which is south of Toledo, and there's about four cars in the parking lot. And I walk in about five about six o'clock. Few people were there on I see sitting at a table, Antonin Scalia the dean of the law school and a constitutional law. Professor, I sit down is the fourth. We spend the next two and a half hours and the law professor had the knowledge of all these Scalia cases, and you know, he was very kind and very generous. And then at some point he looked at me and said Bill comes down to two words. So all the decisions that we do. Comes down to words. And I said, well, what are the two words, Mr Justice? He said who decides? And he said is the constitution given the court to decide on the social issues and many other issues or is it up to the legislature. He said great majority of times, I'll find I'll find the law constitutional, even though I wouldn't have passed it in the first place does that describe what's going on? Hundred percent. It really is. It's it's it's people with different way of looking at the world. It's it's if you that if you can't win at the ballot box you want to win the court. And so this is for many, the, you know, this is this is the final arbiter of all policy concerns they have. And so it's it's become a super legislature. They think if the vote for some reason, I think a policy vote by nine attorneys have life tenure. Two way to answer the way, the answer somebody's questions that they care about how much but. It's we're seeing the fruit of that. I mean, this is an absolute disgrace today. State senate. This is the most deliberative body. And I know the times are tough. I know people's nerves are frayed, and the person is always helpful in that regard to say the least. This is a breakdown of all norms and standards, and it's really embarrassing. And it's funny. The one thing I think that's always talking about president is makes. He makes people what they hate. You know? I mean, people are constantly telling you, this is something and a Republic, and then they become one as they attack you. And I I think that's about Trump lacks civility elax judgment a lot. And so what does the left do? Whether it's a funeral for a wreath of Franklin or John McCain, or whether it's the hearings, Brad, Kavanagh, whatever it is that they become in civil in in civil and it looks like a circus or a charade for those of us that aren't attorneys and don't understand don't watch these hearings. If somebody would tune in to watch this it looks like an addition of the Jerry Springer show it looks. Oh, my God house is happening and the most alliterative body in the world, the United States Senate, interrupting each other screaming hollering shouting, holding up cards and placards, it's disgusting and it began with Bork and Senator Ted Kennedy when he was born to now it's continuing because if you can't convince your fellow Americans persuade them, and so the worthiness of your position on abortion or gay marriage. If you lose it about box, we got. Liberal federal judges that will impose upon the people in the constitution something that nobody voted on. And so that's why we have what we have today. Talk to me about about fam- FAM. You're the president of families against mandatory minimums, explain what that is sure. We're a nonprofit organization based in Washington DC, but working across the country. The constitutional hook is that we believe in separation of powers, and by that we mean that congress should right criminal laws decide what's illegal, and what should be banned. Prohibited and the executive should enforce the laws, but when it comes to sentencing people for the crimes they've committed. That's the job of the judiciary. And that a judge, and this is sort of a view of those who are closest to the problem. No best a judge sitting in a courtroom with the defendant before him or her who is heard all the facts of the case. Who knows the circumstances of the crime, the nature and the history of the defendant in the best position to beat out an individualized sense. And that's individuals commit crimes and individuals reconnaissance individuals, and this is an area where to many my conservative friends are willing to have a one size fits all policy. That says you commit crime as you get this many years, you get that many years, and they think well that's equal. But it's not equal ninety Kuhlman. The EPA regulates the wet land or when the FDA regulates a dry when they try to have these one size fits all standard. It doesn't work. You need people who are coast, the problem to exercise reason discretion, and that's what we want to get back to we want to do that did accept it. Judges screw up which they do from time to time. There should be appealed. And you know, we don't think the judges are intolerable, and my argument is trust judges. Trust. Nobody. And when you go out for mandatory minimums, you will have a prosecutor not only decide who's going to be charged with how many counts you as a prosecutor pick the sentence. And he, you know, Kevin my wife spent a judge for twenty five years, and she's the senior judge of the high court of appeals and from that relationship, I know dozens to trial judges the frustration. They have is to sit there with a chart giving them by the legislature, and they have a chart for each crime. And what they have to do your respective of the fact of who that person is if you fit in this category, you get that crime or that sentence, shall I say, and what that means is the prosecutor determines what to charge to fit you in what category that that blindfolds and shackles the judge who wants to individualize his sentence, it's appropriate to that particular human being, but because of the prosecutor picking the crime and the legislature with their charts of what you can. And can't do you shackle the ability of a judge to individualize his sentence to help society? Yeah. And I don't understand why more people don't get this. I think it's because people, you know, we have this sort of cultural feeling that all judges give slaps on the wrist, which I don't a lot. It's sort of mythic. But it I know what's out there and get you know, we also have a country where ninety seven percent of all federal cases, and then plead deals so there you have right there. If you think people are being by prosecutors and the judges brought a recommended sentence that the prosecutor cooked up the judge may not even know a lot about being under sentence. First of all consider the fact that judges are basically like you said from the state court, it's given a chart and said, okay. And in Clearfield, it's even worse. Here's what we agree to so much. You have strong feelings otherwise and judges really haven't done enough to step forward say, I'm not just rubber-stamping. So they go along with that. So most of these cases are resolved without trial. Russian of our six hundred right to trial. And then when it comes to set saying, you know, get back to separation of powers and letting judges making these decisions, and and I think. Unless you have some experience with the system, and you know, you have access to a treat wife and convenient attorney. Unless you see it. You don't you don't realize potential for abuse that when one to the adversarial system, and the judge is supposed to be the one neutral person there. So, you know, the defense is also the descendant prosecutors are going, you know hardest and that's why you need a referee. When you let the prosecution has all the power, it's like leading the pitcher called the balls and strikes. No matter how they might be biased. They can't do it. And if you go to the American people and say three strikes in you're out, and you're out. Absolutely. If you go to the American people and say, don't we need more on harder sentences answers. Absolutely. But if you're in the system, and you watch it I was in the attorney general's office. I I was a public defender, I practiced criminal defense law. My wife's been in the system twenty five years, and I see so many abuses of power from prosecutors say to a criminal defense attorney, look we're going to indict on this offense that carries six years. Mandatory, however, if you'll plead guilty. To this offense. I'll recommend probation. So I'm saying to my client, look, I don't care whether you did it or not the prosecutor has got the power to put you in jail for six years on this one or we can plead guilty to that one and get probation, and you'd be a fool to roll the dice few pe- a few people do, but the great majority of times, you're gonna walk out of the front door of the courthouse of free man, and do whatever then you have disreputable prosecutors say if you don't plead guilty to murder, I'm gonna charge bag murder, which is first degree murder with the death penalty. So if you don't plead guilty to this murder, guess what you get out in fifteen years. You may be executed. That's too much power in one person's hands. And there's something weird where you don't people watch that on law and order play out over and over again, or they see it movies. And we've accepted that that's the norm. If you just sit back and say why in the world is that have to do with letting the punishment fits the crime. That's just a complete game. That's just that's just sort of like, you know, let's make a deal, but when somebody hears we'll talk about. The case we'll profile case. Somebody's offered three years. They rejected. They believe they're innocent. Who cares? They have a right to trial trial. They lose to get fifteen years and a lot of people react and say, well, you should have taken the deal. You may think that but why? There's somebody who's so dangerous or not dangerous that prosecutor thought three years sufficient now serving fifteen years that we're all paying for that. I don't I don't care that they were stubborn or wrong and over the guilt kilter not interested in that. So I think the game aspect of it has taken over the idea that we're really trying to fit punishments to the quiet people who said well, don't do the crime. If you don't want do the time. The whole question. What's the time? What is the time? And I can't tell you how many circumstances where there's corruption the political process that involves people's going to jail for a long time. And in the federal system, I was a federal law clerk to John Jay young northern district of Ohio and the federal sentencing guidelines are ridiculous for offenses, especially white collar offenses someone's facing twenty thirty forty years in jail because remanded them suppose, we fear them people need to be in jail that we fear not people that remained at and settle lock-up a white collar criminal for twenty years, then in Cincinnati. We had a guy named Anthony Kirkland who burned a young girl raped and killed or who got out after sixteen years, then he went, and then he came out, and then burned and raped and murdered four more girls is like my God that guy needs to be locked up. We don't have room in the jail to keep the Anthony Kirkland's locked up because we have too many white collar criminals who have been destroyed their families and destroy. They lost all their property then to doing. Twenty years in jail and a white collar offense that were mad at them. But we don't fear them. You know what I'm saying?.
