"Have links of course to both on the show page but good start. I think for the new republican congressman for grand rapids. And one of the things that we talked about just before. The show started out once said that he is brand new and i read a little bit about his experience. During this assault on the capital he was he had talked to a reporter and it was just a tiny little section of the story. He was talking like he had to draw upon his military experience to handle this situation. He was looking for places that would be safe for and he was just yeah he just kinda fell back on his military training and i thought for a guy who just got to congress. Where in your mind. This doesn't happen in your mind. You're probably going to this place that you've worshiped for very long time and you get there to do this. Really awesome thing and there's gunfire and there's a riot and you have to fall upon your military training because that's just how you react. If you're a veteran. I think he's going to be reflecting on this for a long time. I think that this probably shaped his political career in a way that it may be you. And i will ever know because it's going to be an internal thing that he reflects on for a long time. I was really struck by a video. I saw of dan kildee. In during the middle of the invasion of the capitol building now members of congress wear a lapel. Pin that identifies the members of congress. That sort of their past to get in and out of the building without being hassled. Although so the black members have been hassled in the past worrying that has aoc because of her age probably but they were that pin and identifies him as members of congress. Kildee was shouting at his colleagues. Take off your pin. Take off your pin. So the the crazies that we're invading the capital couldn't identify them. 'cause he was truly afraid that they would be taken into custody and possibly even be their lives were threatened just because because they were gonna pin that identified him as a member of congress. That's how serious it was well and they were hearing things you know. There are reports of people hearing comments looking for mike pence to take him into custody to hang him for treason. I don't know how serious those were. I don't know how accurate it is a but you can see in the pictures people carrying those flex cuffs. That's not for peaceful protest and we'll get into later Some of the people who are arrested in the aftermath of this. We're very well armed. And there were pipe bombs left outside and those are very dangerous situation at it. It's really heartbreaking if you read metro arts Account of what he went through at think. He's a chief of staff you are referring to your for dan kildee and you read some of these other accounts of people who were there. It's very heartbreaking. And it also makes me angry mitch for those who don't know which is probably everybody in this. Podcast is one of the gentlest nicest people you'd ever want to run into. He's the last person who you'd want to subject to a war zone because you wouldn't think he can handle apparently did in this case. The meyer tweet really becomes more significant when you consider that there were a whole bunch of members of the michigan legislature. Who were pushing. The conspiratorial lies really of the president regarding the election and myers..

"Of the Atlantis space shuttle. Willmore will be joined by fellow astronauts Micheal Fink and Nicole Man when the Starlight air blasts off next June. That's the latest I'm Cameron Fairchild. Thiss is balance of power with David Western on Bloomberg Radio. Still to come this hour. A look at how Michigan will handle the increase in mail in ballots. But first with less than 30 days until the election, Vice President Joe Biden continues to have a strong lead in the battleground state of Michigan or a surprise win in 2016 pushed President Trump over the finish line form or on where the state stands politically. I talked to Democratic Congressman Dan Kildee, whose district includes Flint, Michigan, Genesee County. I asked Congressman Kildee for his perspective on how Vice President Biden is doing in the state. Well, you know, we expect this to be a close race. The polling, of course, indicates that Vice President Biden has a lead that's outside the margin of error. But we've been through this before. In 2016 Secretary Clinton was leading, perhaps not quite by the numbers that we see. But it's caused us no one here to take anything. For granted. The president's supporters are enthusiastic. We believe that the vice president Biden supporters are enthusiastic. So this will very much be a turnout election. There's very few undecided here in Michigan. The question is, how motivated will the voters who support either candidate B. I'm optimistic, but I'm but I'm taking every day seriously, and we have to see it all the way through. What are the issues at this point that you think we're appealing the most to your constituents? I mean, we hear about the economy we heard about handling covert 19. We hear even about the Supreme Court nomination. What really is driving voters potentially in Flint in the surrounding area? I think it's more than anything. It's covert 19, but it's different facets of the healthcare generally before Kobe was still an issue, we still have a lot of people that are uninsured or underinsured, and they see healthcare is an issue access to affordable health care. Koven has made that even even more poignant issue, so it's I think it's the sort of the dual nature of the Kobe situation. The economic impact. And the health implications for Koven are. I think front and centre of this election and I think that's one of the reasons the vice president Biden continues to do well because the reviews on President Trump's Handling of the Koven crisis across the political spectrum. The reviews have been pretty bad well and has his racing about with covert 19 himself. As that changed people at all one way or the other. They could be more sympathetic to him and say, Look, if he did do a good job of having the treatments and he's come out of it. Or they could say that really underscores the importance of taking this disease terribly seriously. I think for most people, I can speak for myself. We hope the president and the first lady and all those around him who contracted this virus, get through it and get through it quickly. But I think there is a recognition that what the president has available to him in terms of treatment and literally having a doctor in the house where he lives separates him from other people. So I think well, he has received some sympathy. I don't think that sympathy translates to any change of view as to how he's handled this crisis. He continues even in his arrival back at the White House to deny the seriousness of this Well, we have 210,000 American families with an empty seat at the table. I'm not sure that the way he's handling even his own struggle with Corona virus is doing anything but reinforced the fact that he's he's really failed on this issue. Congressman Kildee talk about the economy for a moment because one of the things that the president and members of a campaign say is look it. We have a bad economy right now. It's coming back, but it's because of the Corona virus. If you look back before the pandemic, we were doing quite well Do people in Flint and people on Genesee County perceive it that way, Because one of the points I'll make is, the president says repeatedly. We were getting up toward record levels of employment for African Americans, and Flint, of course, has a substantial African American population. Yeah. I mean, obviously, what President Trump inherited was an economy that was growing, and it continued to grow in the first three years of his presidency. It didn't grow in terms of including more people. I think one of the problems that we see in a place like Flint. Or Saginaw, Michigan. Other older industrial cities is that our participation in periods of growth always lags. And in fact, in many cases, we see these periods of growth. We hear about them, but we don't experience it right here. So in part, it has to do with the fact that African American community, for example, generally lags in terms of unemployment. We see it right now. I think even going further. There's a whole subset of American cities that are so anchored to the old economy, and we have not seen this president really take on the challenge of bringing those places into the 21st century economy, and so There's an old saying when, when the country catches cold. Michigan gets pneumonia. We're seeing that right now. We have real serious economic problems in places like Flint. In places like Sagon off that precede Corona virus and have have been made worse as a result of Corona virus, And we haven't seen a really thoughtful approach to the problems of these older cities by this president and finally, congressman. How concerned are you as someone who's running for office Right now, in this election with the counting of the votes? We see this across the country a lot of challenges to vote counting processes. A lot of absentee ballots. A lot of uncertainty. How concerned are you where you are for your election? I've been particularly distressed that the president continues to talk about voter fraud is if somehow voting by mail has contributed to this, there's no evidence of that. People who are choosing to vote by mail are doing so because they're they're doing it to take care of themselves to protect their family to not have to stand in the line surrounded by other people in an era in a period where we have serious disease that can be spread. S O s So long as we follow the process in protect, safeguard the right of people to cast their ballot in the way that is safe for them and make sure we prohibit or do it. We can to stop foreign interference. I have absolute confidence that the election process in the United States of America has great integrity. Thanks to Democratic Congressman Dan Kildee of Michigan secretaries of state look to play an even larger role than they usually do in elections this year, given the concerns over covert 19 and the increase Reliance on absentee ballots firm or on how Michigan is preparing. I spoke to it's Secretary of state Jocelyn Benson. I'm anticipating record breaking turnout. I'm expecting more citizens to vote in Michigan this year than ever in our state's history, and at the same time, more citizens already have voted or are voting by mail than ever before, So it'll take us through that. We talked to the your counterpart in Ohio, he said. They both have absentee ballots, but also early ballots as well as voting on the day. What is Michigan provide for voters? Basically that same same structure. I mean, citizens have three options to vote. This year they convert from home. They convey boat early in their clerks office or they can vote on election day, and then they have multiple ways to return their ballots. If they do vote from home or kick up there about it. They're Clark's office and importantly, we've installed 1000 secure drop boxes across the state. Give citizens the ability to vote from home and return their ballots at their convenience at their local Dropbox. We've heard a lot of frankly litigation about the conditions surrounding absolute balance, but what you have to sign the outside or not, whether it's postmarked..

3 Ways to Double Your Organic Traffic with International SEO | Ep.
"Welcome to a code of Marketing School. I'm Eric Su and I'm your Patel and today we're GonNa talk about three ways to double your organic traffic with international seo but before we do neil's got the bulk of the experience here. We should talk about why International. Seo is important. Neil you've actually had a conversation with people that are experts and you decided to double down on International. Why and then. What kind of results have you seen so I've done a lot of international seo because the majority of the people aren't living in the United States? That's where I'm living right now. So hence I mentioned the United States and I went to Brazil one time saw the potential saw how. There's so much money to be made overseas as well so I went with the International. Seo Approaches worked out. Well if you had to take a guests. Eric what do you think my number one country right get ass yo traffic promise India yet. That's right. That was an easy one. You know that what's number to Brazil. Brazil is number two. You can't see my screen to just crazy number. Three Germany United States. None of you did this Spanish as well. So it's either Spanish or it's Spain or Germany or Mexico no. Uk's next then. Germany then Canada. So you don't see the Spanish ones too many of them in the top ten but if you add up all the Spanish ones they would be it would be number four right after United States Spanish right you're after Mexico. Spain Argentina Chile Colombia etc. So adds up a lot. So I'm not necessarily dominating in one of those specific countries but I'm getting a lot of generating light forty fifty sixty thousand visitors Amoni. Add it all up. It would be the number four spot there you go so we're going to talk with three ways to w organic traffic with International Seo. What is way number one nil so way number one is go out there and build links in these local region so I will tell you the transit your content you already know that don't automatically do it manually adjusted to the local region and of course you know to do keyword research in all this stuff. But here's a big kicker that most people don't talk about you need localized links. It doesn't matter if you have high domain authority if you don't have localized links from everything we've seen you don't do well so make sure you go out there and get localizing stumped by am Email people what just shocker. Most people don't know this is it's easy to build links in anywhere other than English speaking markets because known really bills links in those markets. So you just even when people like sure sounds good. Neil you took away your Chinese translation. I see I still have Chinese translation overseas aflutter. But here's a question for you. This is way number two right now. This is up for debate because you basically put the different languages in a sub folder versus a T. L. D. So I guess I'm curious to ask you. Why did you choose a sub folder versus the TLD by did it? Oliver Okay and socio. Diguise is top level domain. It's basically like UK would be dot co Dot U. K. And then you have a lot of different ones like Japan would be that. Jp reason for doing that obviously is Neal's talking about having localized links. Won't you WANNA see those signals right and having a high level? Tld the actual local like over the country is that's obviously better than having just a dot com so these signals are pretty easy to see right for a search engine so just take that into consideration. Use It kildee. I if you don't use it till they use a sub domain if you don't use a sub domain than do a sub directory I do. The sub directory cited the one that you shouldn't do too lazy to change it at this point but I should have done unique domains because everything that we've seen in experimented with. We have a unique domain for certain regions. Not all but it's hard to like mishmash and do some sub domain. Some their own domain. Just too complicated. But what we've seen untested is in a lot of regions where there's a large population you don't even have to Ba- links or do anything if you're using a It's not even competitive and non really doing. Seo All right number three last but not least what is Neil last but not least folks on brand queries lanes more than anything else. We've found that if you can get brand careers in these localized regions. Your ranking skyrocket. The easiest way so to speak at the local events sponsoring local. Things have feet on the ground. Anything you can do to build up the brand. Carey's right consistent Imo Communication. Try to get more value than all the competition which isn't hard in many cases and yet you don't even need a ton of brand court has just something really does the trick. Nothing makes it really hard

"That we play throughout the day, and we'll get you there. So we know that there had been to Michigan representatives that have been on the impeachment bandwagon. And, and that is related to leave who was the first actually in this new legislative season. She even beat out green to the punch saying that she wanted to impeach and you'll remember that the expletive that she used and you really have to kind of consider her an outlier, I think she would be considered within her own party on the extreme. Then comes just in a mush the next report. Michigan delegation member who says, yeah, I think we should look at impeachment as well. Based on the my read of the obstruction of Justice part of the mother report, I think we could also argue reasonably that he's an outlier in the Republican party of more of a libertarian than Republican will now there's a new Republican Republican, New Democrats, stepping forward, and that is Dan Kildee. Who until now has said that impeachment is the last resort. He's taken a very reasonable measured approach. His choice of words has always been quite moderate. He is not a flame thrower, but this remark by the President George Stephanopoulos, changed his mind. We have information on your honor. Oh, I think I'd wanna hear you want that kind of interference in our elections. It's not an interference have information. I think I'd take it. I think I'd take it and he said he might turn it over to the FBI. He might not. It least that was what he said, within the George Stephanopoulos interview, and for Dan Kildee. He says that is enough that is where he said that he felt that that was not just unpatriotic. It was illegal in this is what he told the folks on MSNBC today. Cut six please, Mike. Well, what the president said Lawrence was absolutely chilling at a moment when I thought he could he couldn't do anymore. He couldn't be more outrageous. He couldn't be more outside the bounds of the norms that we have been bound by for so long. When I watched that it gave me chills. And so he says he now believes that it is time for an impeachment inquiry that it's time to open up impeachment proceedings against the president of the United States, not because of new evidence. That's been revealed for some unredacted part of the mother report, not because of new evidence renew whistle blower, that has stepped forward with damaging information against the president because of his answer to a hypothetical question, and those questions are okay, but they're still hypothetical the constitution says high crimes and misdemeanors show me where it is a crime to muse about what you might do in a specific situation. Isn't that a little bit like when they tried to rewrite history and say, well, his real intent during his immigration ban against those that have are coming in from terrorist countries. It has really that's really a Muslim ban because that's what he said during the campaign. No, you can't do that. He has stated in amusing kind of way and I think it was wrong. I think this foolish was politically knuckle headed, but he said it anyway. And now, this is what Dan Kildee is using to say it's time to consider impeachment and he went further cut four. Police might I have come a long way just in the last month on this subject. I initially was not in favor of pursuing impeachment. I think we now have to have an impeachment an impeachment inquiry, because the impeachment process is not about punishing a president for his misdeeds. I think people misunderstand that it's about protecting the rule of law. It's about protecting the constitution from this pattern of behavior. So he's saying, I'm not trying to remove them for rob is. But I am trying to protect the rule of law for his part. President Trump went on FOX and friends this morning, rewrote. His script a little bit changed his story or clarified. His remarks, you can characterize it the way you want. Let's listen to what he. Of course you have to look at it. Because if you don't look at it, you're not gonna know of it's bad. It's bad. But of course you give it to the FBI or reported to the attorney general or somebody like that. But of course you do that. You wouldn't. You couldn't have that happen with our country that everybody understands what it was made clear fact, I actually said at the beginning, I think I said I'd do both. But if you don't hear what it is. Listen to it. So Mr. Trump revising his comments, they're saying that. Well, that's what he always meant to say. Well, that's not the way it was interpreted by many people, including judge Napolitano, who is very fair to President Trump on Fox News. He said the what he heard in that Stephanopolous interview was an admission that he could and would commit a crime, cut three please my when you heard this, what was your first reaction, the president of the United States of America is prepared to commit a felony to get reelected. That was my reaction and it was not a happy one. I was not happy to hear it. I thought he shot himself in the foot the lyrically, and I wish he hadn't said it, but he did. So what do you think about this is congressman Kildee justified in saying that based on the president's expressions to George Stephanopoulos in that interview that he would take the information, and that he wouldn't necessarily, which was, which was story number one wouldn't necessarily tell the FBI, or is this clarification enough, and we should move on hilly calls it chilling, what do you call at one eight hundred eight five nine zero nine five seven one eight hundred eight five nine zero WJR? We're getting started on a Friday with your calls next on the guy. It started when he lost his job. Then he couldn't find another job then the bills kept piling up. And he said he was a failure, then he began to worry as his mood started swinging, and he got quiet and sunk into a place. You tried to reach you told him you'd get through it together. But he said it didn't matter. He casually mentioned. Ending it all one morning. And he didn't say anything when you asked what it meant, but you knew and he had a gun and you didn't know how to help him. But there is one thing. You can do. We move the gun for now.

This wasn't stealing information from an office in the Watergate apartments, the president also denying he told then White House counsel, Don Mcgann to get rid of special counsel, Robert Muller. But Democrats like congressman Dan Kildee say if he did that may be considered obstruction? If in fact, the president directed Mr. Mcgann to fire the special counsel, that's a substantial question.

And it keeps getting away with it. Because Republicans are standing up to him. So I just I wonder you know, there there's somehow finding a way to defend his breaking the law get together again, but I can delay. Jackie. I think Representative Kildee is right. This is all going to come out there as we've been talking about this morning, right? Chris there is just delay. They're just trying to drag this out as long as they possibly can. Because I think they know any one of these things can bring him down. Right. I mean, who's who tweeted just on his got Ranga tweeted while we wait for Trump's tax returns. Here's a little refresher on how he got his wealth note. His sister just stepped down from the federal bench because they were going to look into it further. But I'm sure it's nothing. It's a one story, right? What is taxes show? What down mcgann's going to talk about? What I, you know, the the full unredacted mall report in the grand jury stuff is going to reveal the boy to Bank documents. It's all interconnected. But what's interesting to me is that hearkens back to Nixon. Right. I mean, it was it was the Republican to eventually turned around went into tenants edgy got Yata step the without the stroke of conscience that we need the morality the the ethics the country over party that we need from the Republicans were in trouble until somebody grows a spine and is willing to step out a line and say enough is enough. Yeah. Well, the I mean, you know, obviously, they starting to certainly this Trump transition team official. You also tweeted about after Mullah report Twitter boss pushed Russia gate hoax narrative. This is the most important story isn't Jacky when you think about the current threat to our sovereignty and our national security that as you said you tweeted about Kirsten Nielsen you said have exactly zero sympathy for Nielsen and special try to launch an image rehab effort. But this story is important. Whether or not it's part of that image effort, and that's something I should make clear because it's entirely possible that that's part of it for her. She's got for life now. And everybody thinks she's terrible for good reason. But regardless if there's any truth to it, and I would assume there is that there's a big threat. It doesn't matter who was trying to warn the president who is trying to take the lead on it. The facts look testified before congress if she was all that worried about it. She should've brought it up then by six doesn't get any bonus points for for kowtowing to this administration in not warning the country, but the bottom line is that there is a major threat, and it's not just the threat of social media disinformation or hacking into voting machines. It's the threat of causing chaos on election day or the days surrounding election day, if you have a power outage people can't get to the polls because the traffic lights, don't work, whatever it is. If you so chaos on the day. Days surrounding vote. The election is in trouble. And I think we need to think about the fact that Russians have access to our power grids. It's something that Ainhoa, and they broke in and that they hacked into every single states registration system. You're right. Why is everyone's hair on fire? Malcolm Nance said to us. You know, there's so many things to be on the lookout for they can if they're in the registration system, they can change every democratic voters, you know, address by one number right or you name it. If you watch veep, they have that whole story Allen. Of taking they made the Chinese instead of the Russian in the middle initial of a bunch of African American voters. So as to suppress the vote, it's because it's v but it's not far from the truth. And obviously, they took a book out of the law and order. Based on true events. I mean, it's this past Assode, they the Chinese knocked out a big chunk of the power grid of South Carolina. Yeah. So they are taking a page scary things that could happen and making them funny in veep real life. That's scary. Yeah. They have this information because it's actually possible. Oh that the Russians have had access to our power these stories get buried because there's so much chaos going on in the White House that they don't rise the level of urgency that they would if we had a normal thing about the days where we didn't have the president's chaotic decisions in the news every single day every hour of every day. I mean, there were other things in the news. Obama didn't didn't steal the spotlight every moment of every day. So these sorts of stories would have percolated to the top in any normal. President beijing. National security concern, and they would be on it. They zone every day. Jackie. And we just have to keep fighting. You tweeted Trump complaints. No one from his administration should have testify before congress because it's too partisan in the Russia if she was over remember the eleven hour day, Hillary Clinton, indulge Trey Goudy on Benghazi on and on. Here's Congress's partisan. Yeah. And by the way, this was an interesting another look over their story that mall report contains claim that Russia taped Bill Clinton having phone sex with Monica Lewinsky, you said who like this story to the examiner or the only congressman we know for sure saw less redacted version of the report is Republican Representative, Don Collins. Yeah. I mean, that's what I saw. The Democrats have rejected looking at be less redacted version bars offered up because they won't the whole. They're not interested in his piecemeal redaction, angering of these little pieces of the Mola report like four done playing games with you. But Doug Collins took them up on it and went read it there's nobody else that we know of who seen the less redacted version, and that's got thank goodness. It hasn't caught on and taken the man. Hasn't hasn't flooded design with that stupid story. But pointing that who's leaking the stuff that's tangential. Right. Who's taking the stuff that doesn't matter and trying to get that into the mainstream. The only person we know of right now is Doug Collins. I mean, maybe somebody else's seen it. We haven't seen a report of it. But Collins may want to clear his name it. It isn't him. Because he's the only person we know of it's taken bar on that ridiculous off right, by the way. Okay. I want to ask you just I know speaking of gentle and salacious. So Alan go ahead. Yes. That's that's my view. So Georgia American businessman is accusing Bob Muller of glaring inaccuracies and sensationalizing texts about a tape as Bill. Salacious tapes involving Trump's 2013 trip to Moscow in a letter to Bill bar lawyer say it contains only part of the text exchange with Michael Cohen whereby he said, we stopped the flow of tapes, plural. But, but it it actually does say in the report that he later thought they might be fakes like we. I mean to me, I don't I still don't think this has been debunked or confirmed. The I mean, obviously, people that have seen what am I saying representatives who've seen classified information and putting himself has hinted, they're being salacious tapes. And I think Trump's reaction tells you that he's afraid there might be right, right? I mean, have you know, for a fact there's nothing dangerous about you out there. Find like good do what you gotta do. Because there's nothing out there. I don't know what you're talking about. If you're fighting to hard, you think there may be a possibility there something out there. That's very diff. Stands sank you. They're going to take this storing go see well Muller misrepresented, and he says the full exchange of his tech show. He was communicating a rumor that down. Stories, but they're gonna take this right? Yeah. Yeah. I know the whole most of them haven't read the report you have to go through it. It takes a little bit of time from himself doesn't read. We know. He hasn't read. It was tasked to try to change the narrative or to set the narrative before the full report got out there. He had a three week running head start any did what he was what he was asked to do. Anything? We gotta get you know, I think we need to get rid of bar. Yeah. Exactly. Listen to our good friend Riccione. I'm not part of the of the decision making the White House about addictive privilege thought give no advice on that. I fight every subpoena. They issue for him for a witness is representing a witness. I find it by I would fight it because they're legitimate everybody in this country knows prejudiced biased. They like the judge decides you're gonna you're gonna die and then trial. Illegitimate. The I mean, let's style branch of government. I mean, go ahead. No trend doesn't have any idea how the government works. He thinks he's a dictator. His new idea. There's a Coequal branch of government that there is such a thing as checks and balances and oversight, and that's how our how our government was established. So that one branch wasn't all powerful. It's it's sad. And it's tragic, and I don't know what more we do continue to fight. And I hope that the Democrats say strong and continue to do this. Because we have the tendency to get distracted. Yep. As a party, embarrassing Republicans can hang onto something like Benghazi for years and years and years. Democrats get tired and six months and move on to something else. So I hope that the the intensity stays is such we don't let this one slide. It's too important. And I just think we have to keep in mind that there's a whole element of counterintelligence that wasn't included in the report. And there's enough pundits. That are saying it, you know, obviously, I'm sure on CNN and MSNBC you're not gonna hear it anywhere else on FOX, for example, or any right wing media. But there's there's real components to this real counter components to this that are dire. Have any of that information and responsibility now for congress to go and look at it? Because what the mullahs report the Muller investigation. Did was look for something that could be proven beyond a reasonable doubt in court. Yeah, it we're looking for criminal conduct that can be proven beyond a reasonable doubt. And ironically, there's tons of collusion. Yeah. That's why they kept saying you know, what I mean? Because that's not a charge. That's not a legal term. That's targetable. Right. Yeah. But look make no mistake if the name in there was Clinton or Obama is opposed to Trump all of those officials were charged pled guilty or we're going to jail or at contact with the Russians or the Republicans would have been jumped all over it immediately. The fact that it's it's their party, and they're not putting the country. I is a travesty an I just don't understand what it's going to take by the way. Speaking of flooding zone. I mean, they also continue to do horrible things. Don't like, right. You're right. There's only so much oxygen right for news coverage, as you know, as a reporter Caroline or tweets a holy hell. The US threatening to veto a UN resolution aimed at preventing rape as a weapon of war and provided assistance to victims because the resolution contains language about sexual and reproductive.

That is not in fact, anti-semitism if you believe those two things so you can just go screw off. I mean, honest to God. So Dan Kildee is another member of the democratic house, and Dan Kildee was on this morning talking. He he represents the fifth district of Michigan and this morning. He suggested on CNN that in fact, her twit was not anti semitism. She's just unsophisticated. She's a newbie doesn't matter. She's had a consistent pattern of anti-semitism for years and years and years. She's a newbie. Let's let's go for the benefit of the doubt. I wouldn't take his anti-semitism. I would say that she probably objects. The fact that when it comes to issues around foreign policy or comes the issue specifically to Israel. There are a lot of interests a lot of folks who who make campaign contributions based on a person's position on Israel. I know congresswoman, Omar, I don't believe the harbor those sorts of views as they've been characterized. But obviously, it's. Problem that she sees that she wants to address. Okay. That's a joke. That's a joke. Of course. She knows exactly what she's saying. She's been an anti Semite four years. It's again when there's a pattern and the pattern is not just a pattern that is close to obvious. It is perfectly obvious at a certain point. You have to say, oh, maybe the person's in anti-semites the Democratic Party is trying to cover for L ahead, Omar because they have an intersectional conflict. Here's the intersectional conflict for Democrats is Molly and she's Muslim therefore she Trump's Jews on the scale of hierarchical victimhood. And therefore, we must pretend that she's not anti Semite. This is the way that it works. If you are higher on the intersectional pyramid in terms of the level of victimhood. Then you get to insult at will people who are below you on the intersectional pyramid. You get to suggest anything you want about those groups Jews do not count as part of the inter sexual coalition. We have seen this over and over and over from the Democrats in the last several years, we've seen it at the women's March where being pro Israel, Linda, Sarsour, said you cannot be a feminist and pro scientist, she's still introducing people like Kirsten gillibrand. Alleys? The members of the women's March were endorsing Farrakhan. No problem for years on end until it finally became a national issue about two years after the women's March started. And even then even then Linda Sarsour is still welcome in the how the halls of power ale c can hang out with Jeremy Corbyn. Why while because she's woman and she says, and because she's a communist show, she can obviously work with the members of the of the labor in Britain, like Jeremy Corbyn, who are openly anti semitic doesn't matter. We'll just pretend that that's not anti semitic in any way. When it comes to intersection theory goes something like this people who people who have been victimized by the system of the United States must band together to tear down that system, but Jews haven't been sufficiently victimized by that system in the United States. They've been disproportionately well educated disproportionately wealthy disproportionately powerful disproportionately achievement oriented that means that they cannot be good faith members of this coalition. And therefore if somebody else in the coalition who has been more victimized wants them out, then the Jews go the Jews are too successful to be. Part of the dispossessed coalition, and therefore they are part of the possessed coalition. They're part of the hierarchy that needs to be itself torn down. This is why the Democratic Party is suddenly so tolerant of open anti-semitism inside its own ranks, Illinois Maher is sitting on the house foreign affairs committee. She's a conspiratorial anti-semites she sitting on the house foreign affairs committee. She's not the only one by the way, we're shooting delayed is exactly the same thing. As elephant, Omar when it comes to these and we're supposed to sit here and pretend the Democratic Party is friendly toward Jews whereas Nancy Pelosi. Pick up the red courtesy phone Nancy isn't a time that you think about who's sitting on your foreign affairs committee or she just going to pretend that everything is totally fine. My my sumptuous in the end, she will think that everything is totally fine. Because why the hell not nobody in the intersection coalition, including Jews in the intersectional. Coalition will say anything they are too scared of being cast out. All the leftist Jews who vote for the Democratic Party who look at things like L Hannah, mar and then shrug and points at Donald Trump, despite the fact that Trump is significantly more Filo, semitic and pro Israel than anybody in the Democratic Party right now. The same Jews who who will thrill to Chuck Schumer who voted against the Iran deal while simultaneously allowing Kirsten children's vote in favor of the Iran deal. Those injuries are likely to look the other way when it comes to L hunt. Omar because the truth is there are a lot of Jews in the United States who don't care very much about Judaism. But do care an awful lot about being members of liberal coalition. That's their prerogative. But the fact is that this Democratic Party is trafficking openly in anti-semitism at this point, embracing openly figures or anti semitic, and they have for years, and they have for years and to pretend otherwise is simply ally to watch it forwarded by members of the media is particularly galling as I say there are folks Dave Weigel who sometimes can be a good reporter for the Washington Post. He tweeted out a little bit earlier today that the real problem is that people are taking Ilhan, Omar literally instead of seriously, he said as an expert on bad tweets, it's obvious that Omar is trying to broach a tricky slash forbidden topic. And it's going to be impossible for her. If she keeps being baited on Twitter. What's that? Tricky. Tricky slash forbidden topic, presumably the involvement of a pack or boycotts investment in sanctions, which actually is an anti semitic proposition. So you have actual reporter from the Washington Post who happens to be a left-wing reporter from the Washington Post. Dave. Talking about how it's just Omar trying to to broach tricky slash forbidden topic. I remember exactly that same kind of tolerance. Forever Republican who said something vile, there were just trying to broach the topic? That's all it was a topic broaching. Absolutely unbelievable. Coming up Representative Ilhan, Omar is not the only democratic fresh face being given.

This isn't you know, we should stop. We should start making stra fuss over this. He told CNN that people in public office should be comfortable saying what they want to say it really is. Honestly, it's incredible. He said, it's perfectly legitimate to criticize Israel, or the pro Israel Israeli lobby just be pleased. Just please be careful to do it in a way that can't be interpreted as being anti semitic. It's not that people are interpreting her words anti semitic. She is invoking anti semitic stereotypes and of story the same party. That's about to dog whistle behind everybody. Whoever dressed as Michael Jackson in one thousand nine hundred eighty two. Is saying that when a woman comes forward and says, the Jews are paying the congress to be pro Israel that is not in fact, anti-semitism if you believe those two things I'm telling you, so you can just go screw off.

"kildee" Discussed on WJR 760
"Weather center. Grey sky will break those we'll get into the afternoon with developing sunshine. We'll get up to thirty seven overnight tonight dropping back down to about thirty one and a good looking day tomorrow, plenty of sunshine and mild how about forty seven from the Weather Channel, I'm meteorologist Ray Stagich on NewsTalk seven sixty WJR. You're hearing the Frank Beckmann show. News talk seven sixty WJR sitting in for Frank. Here's M L L, Rick, and we're joined by congressman Dan Kildee. A democrat from Flint did quick jab there in Genesee county, and is now moving up the ranks in the democratic leadership. Of course, Democrats take control of the house of representatives today. Congressman Kildee thank you so much for joining us this morning on the Frank Beckmann show. Thanks for having me on. So let's talk for a minute about your new role because Democrats have been serving the wilderness for a while. But now, you guys you guys have the wheel you get all the gears ready to go, and you're going to be one of the people who's deciding which direction to take this thing. Yeah. As of noon today, I'll be chief deputy whips in the democratic caucus, which will be in the majority. We have real strengthen the diversity of our caucus, but our power will come from our unity. And so what are the operate? Or one of the responsibilities that I have is the apparition of the whip organization, which is the effort to try to keep Democrats in synchrony, if we can, and you know, it's tough. But I think we have a responsibility to do it. I'm looking forward to that. And I understand whip comes not from actually abusing anybody. But from cracking the whip counting votes and making sure that this her two cats is moving in the right direction, at least the direction that leadership. Feels is the right direction. It's a two way communication straight. You know, the whip. As deputy whip. I'll be talking to members to convey their concerns to the leadership. But also convey with the sort of what the plan is as we address the big questions. So that rank and file members have a sense of what the leadership is proposing. Now, we're all aware the shutdown, but what are some of those big questions that you expect Democrats under soon to be leader Pelosi will tackle starting today. And then going into the new year. Well, I step will be obviously try to get government fully operational. We have about a quarter of the government that is set down as a result of president insisting on a border wall being funded. We have legislation that will go to the floor that has already passed the Senate with an overwhelming bipartisan margin. There was just simply reopen government and fund most of the government all the way to the end of the year and leave the homeland security budget funded for a month to allow further negotiations out of respect for the fact that the president wants to pursue this priority. We will we'll we'll negotiate what we're not going to accept this idea that the only time we negotiate is under the threat of a government shutdown that is just no way to run a government. And we're not going to be a party to that. I want to focus on a key word in in that phrase used funding. The wall are Democrats against a wall or a Democrats against American taxpayers paying for a wall? Because I think we all remember we were told over and over again that the Mexicans would pay for it. Whether it's a beautiful wall or not, but we were not going to bear the burden of building this thing. Yeah. I think the issue really it's on two fronts. The policy itself is the wrong direction. I mean with the president wants to do is use technology that was developed essentially in the seventh century to deal with the first century problem. Real experts real security experts suggest a completely different approach using a combination of technology drone technology, electronic technology. Other ways to provide a secure border the president during the campaign found a slogan that worked for him. And it was we were going to build this wall. And his whole focus is not about actually securing the border or fixing the immigration problems we face, but just simply meeting that promise. He made the promise we didn't make that promise we want border security, but we want to do it. Right. And that's not just Democrats Republicans like, for example, congressman will heard a Republican from Texas who represents the border who is a security expert worked in the CIA for a decade. He thinks this is the absolute wrong approach to securing our border, and I agree with him. We ought to do it in a way that actually makes sense in not built some sort of a monument to Donald Trump seventh-century promise of a big beautiful magnificent wall. That's it's it's childish that he continues to take this position. So even if the Mexican government calls tomorrow and says, hey, we see a lot of people in America. Suffering over this issue. We found the peso's we're gonna pay for this wall. Construction can start tomorrow won't cost you dime. Democrats in the house are not going to go for that. No. In fact, if the Mexican government wants to work with us on border security, there are a hundred things we would do before we started erecting some great big wall. So you know, if in fact, we can find a good partnership with Mexico to deal with border security. We ought to take it. But I mean, we just have to all remind ourselves what this is about. She had people in big rallies chanting, build the wall. And he feels like he has to go back to that base telling them that he did what he said he would do even when security experts say this is a really dumb idea. So we had a very heated discussion on the show yesterday about the wall. And a lot of francs listeners are very much in favor of the wall. But I think one common thread that everybody seemed to agree on was that there's an import. In legal immigration that that the wall is some people like the fact that there would be an actual wall and other people see it as a symbol, or at least an effort to stop illegal immigration into our country where where do you where does the the house leadership stand on that? Well, I mean, we obviously need comprehensive immigration reform that deals with all of these questions, including legal and illegal immigration. In fact, in twenty thirteen the United States Senate passed comprehensive immigration reform did commit significant resources to twenty-first-century border security funding, but also fixed a lot of the other problems in our immigration system. That's what we should be taking. We we we have to keep in mind for those who are obviously and rightfully concerned about illegal. Immigration, the need to be reminded that the majority of immigrants who are here without proper documentation so called illegal immigrants. They do not go across the Rio Grande they come through our border checkpoints. They receive a visa, and then they overstay that visa we would much rather deal with the real problems that we have in the immigration system, by focusing on internal enforcement a process for those who ought to be able to be allowed to stay like the the dreamers. These these so-called dreamers DACA recipients deal with the needs. That are implied across the economic spectrum are asking us to address in order to have immigration support a growing economy. We ought to do all that we had a chance to do it in two thousand thirteen the Republican congress failed to take up the bipartisan Bill that the Senate had passed. And now somehow all of this really complex decision making his defaulted to a debate over whether we ought to put a thirty foot seventh-century wall up and pretend that somehow that solves the problem. Well, we'll be beautiful I heard so maybe that's that's what the president says. Okay. Well, let's say a lot of things congressman Dan Kildee democrat from Flint soon to be the chief deputy whip in the house leadership that means a little more clout for the state of Michigan. So we're glad to have that in our pocket. Thanks for joining us this morning on the Frank Beckmann show and good luck. Getting this thing turned into right direction and open. If nothing else will do our part. Thank you so much. Thanks, congressman. We'll be right back. And here we are as promised with WGN, traffic and weather first on the fives. Not a bad drive on the freeways right now. Although because of the ongoing roadwork in southwest, Detroit,.
