White House Calls for State, Local Eviction Moratoriums After Supreme Court Ruling
"Advocates and court officials were gearing up today for what some fear will be a wave of addictions. Others, however, predicting it will just be a growing trickle after U. S Supreme Court action allowing the lockouts to resume. The high court's conservative majority late yesterday blocked the Biden administration from enforcing a temporary ban place because of the coronavirus pandemic. The action ends protections for about 3.5 million people in the US who say they face eviction in the next two months. The court's action does not affect the temporary bans on evictions placed by a handful of states, including California, White House Press secretary Jen Psaki said. The Treasury Department and Housing and Urban Development Secretary Marcia Fudge today sent a letter to all governors, mayors and county officials urging them. To implement their own eviction moratoriums. President Biden would, of course, support congressional action to authorize an eviction moratorium, and the Supreme Court has now clearly outlined that as the sole way a moratorium could remain in effect now, at the same time, I think it's important to remember what our objective is here. Our objective is to keep as many people around the country in their homes as possible. Federal legislation is one way to do that. Obviously, the eviction moratorium we had have had in place and we've been issuing month to month is one way to do that. But the ER a funding that came through the American rescue plan, and it's going out to states is another way to do that, and we have asked, and we have put out today. The Department of Treasury and the secretary of It has the same impact right because it is preventing people from being kicked out of their homes. And these states have the funding thanks to the American rescue plan to get that done now, the other place that's our responsibility that we continue to focus on is working to eliminate any red tape that exists.

"Is that right. Yes are well. That is very bad. Yeah it cannot remind people of something. Jon ossoff jon ossoff ran for congress ramp or House and the house of representatives. He lost a lot of people have forgotten that but he was in a race that raise more money than in the history of a congressional district race and he lost jon. Ossoff was defeated. Remember said there's no finality. Democracy that defeat of ossoff did not stop him from running against an incumbent. Us senator in that next election cycle. And he want he want. So here's the context. I'm trying to provide here. If us would not have run that first time and created the atmosphere the excitement got his message out to others created relationships that he didn't have made connections that he never would have thought possible build coalitions inside of the democratic party and progressive movements black and brown coalitions. Lgbtq i community etc. If he did not do that he never would be senator john off today so you have to look at it from a holistic point of view. Read the dan the race right now in front of you now. I still hope my sister pulls this out because it would be a victory not just for us. Ty t. this'll be a victory for america. We know that but if she doesn't pull it out it doesn't mean it's a loss yes so different websites different numbers which is normal on an election night and so another side that i'm looking at says that only eighty four of the five hundred thirteen precincts reporting so far and remember if it's really only around seventy one thousand boats. Well okay. They could You know only sixteen percent of the precincts could be reporting. But nearly half the votes came in the mail imbalanced where chantal brown twenty point lead And so that could be decisive. Even with eighty four percent of the precincts remaining. But we don't yet know but there's a bit of No if it's irony or something along those lines That in national elections. We for a long time now. Ohio leans more decidedly red. Unfortunately but ohio to be along with florida. The prototypical swing state so election after election We would say here on the young turks yes but how cuyahoga county is not. Come in yet. And this. Because i hope counties were. Cleveland is and you wait for the big cities to come in. And then that's swings. Ohio and kim decide whether a is going to win or not and carter county for example in two thousand four came in but it didn't come in enough for john kerry in george bush won the election right so now in this case this is cuyahoga county's. That's and it's not the only county in this district and there's akron in their summit etc. But we still do have Plenty reports votes the left in cuyahoga county Funny enough And so we're certainly waiting on those. I don't wanna get yet get into what if this person wins or loses. Wanna tell you more about the race. And i'll read your comments in in one second here here. In fact i'll read a couple for you right now. so Thomas cunningham who just joined as a member by hitting the joined by blow on youtube said thank you for spreading the progressive message in the truth and and then progressive conduct road in go nina. She has a canadian. Progressives cheering her on progresses around the world united we stand and btw. Do we love ty t. o. Or so thank you for saying that we appreciate it and comsip radical cook wrote wrote in the member station. Should we give obama credit. For not endorsing sean. Tell at the last second. Well would be a really low bar for granted. But i will say that. If obama had come into this tiny little race one it would have been telling you about how much the establishment was panicking about nina turner and progressives but nina turner specific. But if he had it would have been over. I mean if if obama comes into a predominantly black district and endorses. Someone person is very very likely to win So thank god. He didn't do that. But clyburn these days is is sometimes acting as an unofficial proxy So i mean there. Salvador media is built up clyburn as some sort of giant and and and so he might have made an enormous difference here. So we'll see how that goes. But i wanted to build on one of the things that Rashad said you know Marcia fudge is very popular in the district because she was the congresswoman there for a long time. And the reason we're having this special election is because she had appointed to become the housing and urban development secretary for binding and marcia fudge if we're being honest total establishment democrat and so if she could endorse show almost certainly would have endorsed shawntel brown now shell brown in the beginning no like everyone else. Shoot a picked somebody out of a hat right. So shawntel wasn't any more qualified than the other eleven people running and but but once the lobbyists decided was chantal brown. Very likely marcia fudge would've also said chantelle brown but she as sitting cabinet member. She's not allowed indoors in a race. So that is why toll brown says. Oh i have such a great working history with marcia fudge wink on her website. And then they had like. I forget if it was like marcia. Fudge is mom or aunt or daughter. Something come out and say hey. I really like chantal brown wink right. So they did a lot of winking from the marcia fudge cam the to lead people towards sean tell brennan if that made a big difference or not But know we're honest. We care about the facts here. I'm i'm telling you. There are no question marcia fudge could have shown was certainly would have indoor chantal brown and and i have no reverence for african american corporate democrats That's the press bullies. You intas saying no. You have to show the more respect. No i don't i. I have no respect for steny hoyer. I have no respect for any white corporate democrat. Why would i weirdly. Have respect for establishment or corporate. Black democrats are just don't and so you can't make me and i don't care what you call me i'll call you the same thing back. I don't care. I don't care about your stupid dirty tricks. Establishment media and otherwise a tiny bit of movement. Here not much to to know but fifty one point three to forty two point five. So now it's almost a nine point lead Down nine points. It's gotta go faster than this in order for her to catch up But it's not that the the numbers coming in are are not catching up fast enough. Is that the numbers coming in are tiny so we moved from thirty thousand votes to thirty nine thousand eight hundred and thirty votes. So that's the reality here guys when we szanto browns said i will. I will never condition a israel and she put up a red box in her website. Red box means. I want independent expenditures. You're not actually supposed to literally put like in the beginning to put bread boxes than they became more sophisticated but shantelle was desperate so she put up a little red box which means independent expenditures. I'm willing to be corrupt for you. Please spend money. I will do whatever you need. And if that wasn't clear enough this is before democratic majority for israel came in or any other lobbyists came in. She put out three quotes from board members of democratic majority for israel underneath the red box in other words i want the right wing israeli lobbyists to come fun my campaign against this progressive and they did and they delivered and by the way if you're in the establishment media and you post them. Bs about catching feelings. On like oh. Ilhan omar talked about lobbyists that are in favor of the israeli government. Oh that's anti semitic bull. I can't curse.
Report shows US homelessness rising even before pandemic
"Homelessness in America is on the rise and it already was before the corona virus pandemic drag down the economy a yearly report from the housing and urban development department found in January twenty twenty more than five hundred eighty thousand people didn't have a place to live on a given night that's a two percent increase over the year before and that was before the pandemic thrust to millions of people out of work newly confirmed hud secretary Marcia fudge says the report is very troubling and that homelessness has been rising over the past four years she's applauding the latest code relief package which includes five billion dollars for emergency housing vouchers to help get individuals and families off the street Jackie Quinn Washington

US Senate confirms two more key Biden cabinet picks
"Day on the Hill, Marcia Fudge from Ohio representative confirmed as the housing and Urban Development secretary. You have Merrick Garland confirmed as the attorney general. I mean, ah lot going on. Over there. But then you have well. The question about Joe Biden. And how he's doing. They're supposed to be a press conference tomorrow with Joe Biden. I think when Joe Biden has given time and ample time to prepare, he can handle things. You know, I did say that in the debates, Joe Biden is gonna fall apart. He didn't fall apart. He wasn't great by any stretch, but he didn't fall apart. He seemed to have all his faculties. So maybe what it takes is a lot of prep to get him to be able to do the thing to build that level of memorization or whatever it is, it's going on to get him through it. And yes, I think that in a press conference, things were gonna be very, very tightly controlled. Wouldn't think that it would be otherwise. But more and more people want to push the idea that Kamila Harris might be in charge. After all, she's taking solo phone calls regarding foreign policy. And admittedly, Barack Obama never allowed Um Joe Biden to do that. He probably knew Joe Biden better than we do. And Mike Pence only did it a handful of times a couple times a year. Was he the one engaged in those conversations. So maybe it's just a difference of philosophy. Maybe it's indication of an issue. But the idea that it's maybe can't ask me to go down that that conspiratorial

"I do want to note and let you respond to the Trump administration argued. Hey, we're in favor of fairness in housing, but the way that the Obama team went about it was the wrong way we heard President Trump complained repeatedly that if you mandate low income housing, it would it would destroy the suburbs and so on. Do you think anything in the trump legacy on this is worth preserving? I don't the attacks that we heard Donald Trump make on these rules specifically on my work. I take this personally that it was destroying the suburbs. Was very similar to what we heard Ben Carson say in the presidential campaign in 2016, he said, This is social engineering. And we have to really focus on the fact that that is completely ignoring the history of the United States and how we ended up with segregated neighborhoods in the first place. We know that segregation and racial inequity were created by the government, federal mortgages that explicitly said You are not allowed to sell your house. You a person of color. That is how we constructed racial segregation. We need to make sure that those who have started behind in the race are given a chance to catch up, and that's why we need to make sure that this is an active role. That the federal government is taking. What do you see is the biggest challenge, I guess the biggest immediate challenge for Marcia Fudge if she is confirmed as the next HUD secretary, we know that more than a third of Americans Were having trouble just meeting the rent because of widespread joblessness, loss of wages, the deep impact's of cove ID and so job one has to be keeping folks in their homes. And getting $25 billion in rental assistance that was just passed by Congress. Out into people's hands so that they can Stay in their homes and don't end up on the streets. Shaun Donovan.

New tensions emerge between Biden team and Trump administration
"Joe biden's incoming administration is taking shape. Former deputy secretary of state anthony blinken will be nominated for secretary of state x fed chair. Janet yellen is up to run treasury retired. General lloyd austin has been tapped to run the defense department. Some of these names have been more controversial than others. there've been some progressive objections to biden's likely pick a former iowa governor. Tom bill sack to reprise his role running. The agriculture department and a lot of republicans in the senate are cool to the choice of near attended a close hillary clinton confidante to run the office of management and budget. Some other choices like yellow. Have gotten pretty warm receptions across the political spectrum to talk about this administration that's what is likely to mean in terms of what a president joe biden might actually do. Let's bring in our left right and center panel on the right law. Chen is the david. Diane steffi fellow at the hoover institution and he's the director of domestic policy studies and lecturer in the public policy program at stanford lot. He has worked on several presidential campaigns for republicans including george w bush's reelection campaign marco. Rubio's two thousand sixteen run and he was the policy director for mitt romney in the two thousand twelve presidential campaign. Hello lonnie thanks for having me and on the left sabil. Rama joins us. Bill is president of demos a progressive organization that studies and advocates for voting rights economic and racial justice and equity sabil is also an associate professor at brooklyn law school. Bill so bill when you look at these names What does this tell you about. The sort of administration that joe biden is preparing to run. So i think the roster that's being built out is really interesting to me what it shows. Is there too big tensions that i think the new administration is trying to balance. A one is a balanced between old hands and some new faces and the other is a balanced between a pragmatic course and also progressive ones. So when you think about someone like janet yellen or cecilia rouse on the economic team These are folks who have deep experience in economic policy but also represent. I think a little bit more of a kind of a progressive wing of the larger policy debate. Not these are certainly not Bernie sanders elizabeth warren folks but they very much represent a part of the economic profession that is increasingly focused on issues of inequality Racial equity and issues of how we get around are sort of current problem of austerity politics. Lot he what do you make of this list of names. Well i think first of all there are a number of very highly qualified people on the list people who have great experience in government who i think even republicans who may have policy or ideological concerns would have to say are well qualified to play the roles. They've been a nominated by the president. Play and so. I think that that's a very hopeful. Sign on the other hand. You've got some real head. Scratchers here josh. There are people who the president is nominated for roles in various situations that i think people kinda wonder what was he. Thinking there Heavier sarah for example to be secretary of health and human services a man with no health policy no public health background who's really so claim to fame in healthcare is arguing to defend the affordable care act which by the way may have been enough for biden but it really seems to be one of those picks where he had put the sarah somewhere so he put him at. Hhs which under ordinary circumstances might be okay but in the middle of a pandemic hhs is going to play a critical role in disturbing the vaccine and hopefully overseeing and the the end of this covid nineteen pandemic here in the us. choice of. Sarah is puzzling one. The other one that i would point to which doesn't require senate confirmation and so Will be what it is. Is susan rice as director the domestic policy council which has traditionally been the policy making apparatus at the white house that coordinates the creation of domestic policy overseeing areas like education and health care immigration. Picking someone with with the deep foreign policy experience for that job seems to me to be a little bit odd. I think she was picked for that job. In part because it doesn't require senate confirmation and biden. His team knew there was no way republicans. Were going to confirm someone is controversial. Susan rice so for every sort of great. Pick for every janet. Yellen for every brian You know you have a few that sort of make you think. Gosh what is the biden team doing here. So it's a little bit of a mixed bag so far. Yeah bill when. I look at the list of names. I do sometimes see what he is describing their almost a sense that biden had list of people that he liked and wanted to give jobs to and a list of jobs he needed to fill and in some places. The matching of the to feels a little bit random. I'd also point to to marcia fudge who's an african american congresswoman from cleveland. She'd openly campaigned to be agriculture secretary. She's a senior member of the agriculture committee. There'd been a lot of progressive concerns about how the agriculture committee has dealt with black farmers and about beneficiaries of nutrition programs people primarily eat food rather than making it And biden has passed over. Her is expected to bill sack in that position and then fudge specifically said that she didn't want one of these traditionally black cabinet jobs like labor or housing and urban development. She's going to be put up to run housing and urban development. So some of these choices they do have that feeling to me of what we want this person job. Well here. this one's available. Let's give them out. One is that is that. Is that too harsh. Look looking at this selection process and saying that you know i. I do think there's a little bit of that. In terms of the example with congressman fudge gave. I think is a is a good one of your. She has deep expertise actually on areas connected to usda. I'm at the same time. I think she'll bring a novel. Interesting and important voice went on the issues of hud but there is a little bit of that. I think the thing i would offer is you know. There's so much going. On with this transition. Given the pandemic given the extraordinary delays that the trump administration put in place at one things that we're really looking at is what's what does that next layer down. Look like so when you think about the whole team Not just cabinet but cap a deputy secretaries and so on can does it look like a team that then has the balance of deep expertise and Mission alignment right at someone. Folks who are laser focused on the combined crises of of the economy and covid and climate and original justice moment. That's the next layer. That i would look at right. Are folks getting complimentary. Picks to offset some of where they might need additional insight or expertise

"And tested soldier and leader. I spent countless hours with him in the field and in the white house situation room. I've sought his advice seen his command and admired his calm and his character. He is the definition of patriot and quote so some pretty high praise therefrom biden. He's expected to announce him today. So i'm not sure when this episode is going to end up coming out but maybe you'll already have seen him speaking a little bit. Surprisingly there's a little bit of controversy not from republicans but from democrats. So i didn't know that this was a rule but the defense secretary position is technically supposed to be just a regular civilian leading the armed forces. Which if you think about it. That's kind of the opposite of what we're going for right. Maybe there's a reason for it but it just feels like it's like putting trump in charge of the covert response instead of dr fauci fauci. What kind of sense does that make. But austin has only been retired for four years not seven so he would need that congressional waiver to serve in this position. This waiver has only been granted twice in the past seventy years recently to trump defense secretary. James mattis and democrats were leery of doing that and then because it just broke that precedent of having the civilian charge. But i you know. I don't know. I don't get that this story from cnn. And they're making it sound like democrats might push back on. This biden off to convince them. But i think it's just can be hard to turn this guy down. Four years seems like enough time for me to be back to a civilian Would the soldier ever come out of this guy or anyone else nominated for the role. Who used to be military seven years or fifty years. I feel like a soldier is a soldier will have to see how that plays out. But from what biden is saying about him. I'm feeling pretty. Good about the pick flipping over to the department of housing and urban development. Which wack job dr ben carson currently leading biden has selected representative marcia fudge as his nominee.

We're going to have to stop looking at only certain agencies as those that people like me fit in. You know it's always like we want to put the black person in labor or hud. I'm not exactly sure what changed in that time period. And maybe that's just taken out of context because this was another politico article which you have to watch out for. Because they love linking to other articles on their site just to keep you hooked. But i suppose you never actually know how you're going to react until you get that call like if the president asks you to do something to serve. I think you just take it. You know. I don't think you get too picky. She will have an important job since a lot of folks are going to be facing eviction and back rent bills as well as the existing homelessness problems..

Really is an honor to add to my national security team leader of extraordinary courage character experience an accomplishment in a man who i've seen some of the or interesting parts of the world with vice president someone with whom i have worked closely for many years and i've seen perform the highest standards under intense pressure. Now that's not to say austin won't phase hurdles as we discussed yesterday. Some democratic senators like elizabeth.

That austin had a relationship with his late son bo. He was both commanding officer in iraq and attended mass with the president's son.

Vilsek who served as secretary of agriculture in the obama administration to return to that same job and he's nominating congresswoman marcia fudge to be secretary of housing and urban development. This is interesting. A lot of people had been urging biden depict fudge for the agriculture job instead. Joining me now is. Npr's dan charles who covers food and agriculture. For i dan. Good morning david well. Let's talk about representative. Marcia fudge what why were so many people pushing for her to get the job. So there's an interesting thing about the department of agriculture. It was set up to help farmers back when farmers were half of the country. And it's still does a lot of that but the country has changed and the biggest part of the usda's budget now is nutrition aid. You know the supplemental nutrition assistance program snyder's school lunches and marcia fudge has been one of the fiercest defenders of those nutrition programs on capitol hill. She represents a district that includes much of cleveland also akron ohio. She's been on the house. Agriculture committee she and her supporters felt. It was high time for the top. Usda job to go to somebody who saw those nutrition programs as the department's big priority and not just sort of a change in emphasis but this would have been a historic break with the past In that job she's a black woman is she would have been the first black woman in that job. Only the second woman Period also. There's another thing you know. Most agriculture secretaries have been connected somehow to farming or farming areas. She's from city. Well you know in the end it did not happen. David will now be nominated. Apparently to be secretary of housing and urban development instead and for agriculture biden went for somebody much more traditional. Tom vilsek may be part. Two former governor of iowa who becoming back into the same job at that he served on president obama right. He was secretary of agriculture. For all eight years of the obama administration but apparently that was not enough for him. He's okay middle of the road described as even-handed certainly knows the issues but some of those anti-hunger groups and environmental advocates who supported fudge. Really are not happy about deville sack choice. It's partly because they want that change at. Usda more focus on nutrition also the environment. But there's another thing. Tom vilsek after he left. The obama administration took a job as ceo of the us dairy export council which is an industry group and his critic. Say this is kind of a sign of their problem with them. They say he's too cozy with the big companies that represent the status quo in agriculture. Why you cover so much of this I in very deep ways. I mean talk. About what policies may or may not change under a biden administration with vilsek at the homeless department vilsek represents continuity in a way but there are things that people do expect change There's been an extraordinary development in the last couple of years. During the trump administration the secretary that the department of agriculture passed out record breaking amounts of financial aid to farmers this year alone. Forty six billion dollars in direct government payments. I think that is not going to continue. There's another thing the. Usda may turn into a bit of an environmental agency play a big role. Perhaps in climate change it has some money. For this rural development programs could help pay for clean energy in rural areas their plans to pay farmers for practices on the farm that reduce greenhouse emissions could also promote reforestation. The us forest service sexy part of the us department of agriculture and those forests are in the way as the climate heats up npr's. Dan charles covers food and agriculture. Dan thanks so much thank

So yeah, I don't really see a scenario unless something really creepy happens tomorrow morning where where she ended up going down on the floor fair enough. Alright. So it'll be speaker Pelosi. And of course, new committee chairs coming in a number of them, quite intriguing, of course, Adam Schiff at intelligence, Maxine Waters at finance. And of course, Jerry Nadler, the House Judiciary committee chair coming in. And is it just my impression or has? He since this has become a fate accompli. Has he been using the I word less that is to say impeachment. The closer he comes to being able to actually engineer such a thing has he been using it less now. Democratic leadership sources that I've talked to have tried to tamp down impeachment threats. Launching their there's going to be a fluid investigation one hundred hundred and fifteen congress picks up. But I I mean as of right now, I I haven't I mean, it's been floated by a couple of people, but I actually like as far as the chairman and leadership go, it seems to be not in the cards at the moment. Whether that happens down down the road, depending on what happens with investigations the possibility, but it's kicking off the hundred and sixteenth congress. I don't see that happening. Now, we'll come back. We'll get a few other areas that have to do with the possibility of of playing Monty hall. Let's make a deal here. But before we even do that, we all know, of course, what will happen if the congress comes down in your face, Donald Trump. We all know how the president reacts to in your face. It's in your face right back. Confrontation nose-to-nose eyeball to eyeball at presumably gridlock. Right straight through to twenty twenty at least, legislatively speaking. So what do you think the likelihood is that that is the path? They will take that perhaps the impeachment process will not be brought about but there'll be investigations right left and sideways enough that it will provoke the president which presumably if the Democrats do that they're essentially saying we're not interested in in legislation or interested in issues that we can take to the electorate in two years. I mean, I think the the investigated. I think you'll definitely have an impact on the election. Come twenty twenty. I mean, how that impacts whether or not President Trump gets primary or. I think there there's a lot of different outcomes with all the different investigations, whether it's tax returns or. Moeller investigation. There's so many factors. Have yet to be seen? It'll be interesting to see how it all pans out. Yeah. It it will absolutely back in the category of making a deal. If in fact, the atmosphere is ripe for that. We mentioned infrastructure and immigration ObamaCare. Go less a personage, the Mitch McConnell who will be calling shots in the Senate has taken note of the fact, although we didn't phrase it like I'm going to phrase it, but the Republicans had two years for repealing and replacing ObamaCare as they had promised to do and they royally managed to not get that accomplished. So now, there'll be no repealing and replacing of ObamaCare. And so a lot of people out. There are dependent on what he is in some ways an ailing program, and they're stuck with it some of the old infrastructure from before the Affordable Care Act being passed as gone. So even for those who are adamant about wanting to get rid of it. They have to patch it up. Do they not at least for another two years? Now, I think they might have to I think President Trump somebody to kind of like winning almost more than partisan politics. So whether or not, I think the ways and means committees and energy and commerce committee is kind of work better in a bipartisan basis and a lot of the other committees. I mean, obviously, the Republican Bill when went down in flames in two thousand eighteen whether they'll be able to patch that up in kind of come together for that. It'll be interesting to see how the out, but I know that healthcare is a large part of why Republicans lost the house and during the midterm. So I think that especially with the court case with the ObamaCare. I think a lot of them are are worried about how battle factor into the race in twenty twenty. And of course, we've already had criminal Justice reform. So this granted was in in the lame duck session. But nonetheless. A certain amount of bipartisanship involved. So it is it is possible for the two sides to work together. If not the areas that I brought up you see other areas. It looked likely in terms of of some kind of collaboration for for mutually agreed upon interest. I think there's always in every congress. I think that'd be more more stone. With criminal Justice forum infrastructure is definitely something that's been talked about whether or not the that'll happen with the deficit. It seems more and more unlikely. But I I definitely think there's going to be areas where I think especially with some of the younger members coming in the things like climate change. Able to work together across the aisle and looking at the if you will the young Turks of each party, of course, a number of Democrats ran scared after Joe Crowley was defeated. One of the veteran, the House Democrats by Alexandria, Cossio Cortez. And there is this looking over their left shoulder a feeling I think among a lot of the leadership. Now looks like these folks are not going to be able to unseat speaker Pelosi. But to what extent will they have a safe, so a sway tugging the Democrats further to the left. I think I mean, we already saw with policy kind of term limiting herself. Obviously, these things are having an impact with people wanting kind of younger voices, whether it'll pull to the left or the right. I think she I think she's going to be dealing with this actors on priorities that she has on both sides, whether it be moderate Cirque progressives, which actually might make her job more difficult than it was for speaker. Ryan. Don, I think the new makeup of congress is going to make for a very interesting. Matter of fact, briefly how long did she say she would serve a speaker? Did she limited herself to just this one one session of congress? She turned herself as she after three terms. She is turning herself out of what your ship is part of the deal. She made with molten and kind of anti Pelosi data fair enough. Yeah. I'm having a break here. We'll take that. We'll come back. We'll talk some more. We'll look at the Senate and some of the two thousand twenty aspects of it.
Thanksgiving: Prepare for the busiest travel time of the year
"Was traveling today were you traveling Allen. No, actually, I tried to rent a car, and there was no way to rent a car, and they wanted to charge me five hundred dollars. So I cancelled it. Oh, good for you. So where are you spending thanksgiving week weekend? Well, I'm sending it up in New York state where my family and actually I've been New York City right now. Where there's a lot going on. What can I say? By the way. No, I've not begin. I do eat fish. But I had a pet Turkey named Pablo which is Turkey in Spanish, and he broke my nose when he tried to a way after I was talking and kissing. Only you Ellen. I love it that after he Africa back. I had my nose fix, obviously. And then he died a natural death. And then I had impact determined and he lives at the bottom of my stairs in lily, Dale, New York, which of course, dead people are too should come into your radio show from Idaho. I know I really wanna do it there because I've read stories about it, you know, about it. And I am we're going to make that happen. I want to come and do that. I wanna do that for the listeners would love. And of course, then you can meet Pablo. I I like it. We're gonna make it happen. I promise you that's going to be my twenty nineteen. So we're going to do that. So in Washington, the big story, but really reverberating outside of Washington is President Trump and the criticism of you know, the rare criticism of supreme court chief Justice John Roberts. And believe that Robert Kennedy. Well, what he basically said Robert Justice what Trump tweeted out back. In fact, there was a Obama judge and the ninth circuit that permit. Compare very very tough on migration cetera. So then John Roberts says we don't have. And he's the chief Justice was Republican was appointed by Republican. And he basically said, hey, we have Clinton charges. We don't have Bush judges. We don't have Obama judges. And we don't have Trump judges. We have just judges. And then President Trump tweeted out again. Yes, we do have judges that are one of those four. And I mean, this is just a war. You do not make war with the chief Justice seem state. Yeah. That was really surprising. I think we've seen the last of that. I mean, even you know Chuck Grassley tried to defend the president's saying, you know, why did Roberts rebuke Obama's remark. Why didn't he do that? He was trying to say he didn't do that before with Obama, and he made a comment, but I think that's much different. It is much different. And it's going to. I mean, this is to go down in the history books. Thanksgiving. But because nobody can believe that Roberts issued that statement. I mean, it was just unbelievable. Yeah. Yeah. Absolutely. I agree. And then how about this story? Then this other story that's getting a lot of attention is the president praising the Saudis for the low world oil prices. Oh my gosh. So as you know, he has just let the Saudis off the hook in terms thicker, show key Kelly. And. Basically, he said, listen, if we don't sell the Saudis things they're going to buy it from Russia and China that might be true. But as you remember, we have had former presidents like Carter who actually put human rights. I was roundly criticized for that. But President Trump is being criticized for not putting human rights at all in context. Yeah. Wow. I don't think we've heard the last of this whole Saudi thing either. This is just kind of a tipping point. There may be much more. That happens down the line only that and I'll tell you I was against of the Saudi Arabian government after nine eleven along with them up a talk show host, and they took us to a party on the Red Sea. I've never seen so much alcohol in my entire life. Drink it. Yeah. I've heard similar things. So that's not shocking to me. Let's put it that way. In the meantime, here's the big thing. Because there you are in in. New York City and so much conversation about the weather. What is the temperature like in the east coast is like what one degrading very very cold, very cold. Yeah. Not a great for parades. A not a and it's supposed to be very windy or the Macy's day parade. Very windy, and you know, we have seen balloons get blown about. But the wind is supposed to be staggering which would be just in a few hours. Wow. Crazy, and you and I talked about Nancy Pelosi. And now there's the story that Marcia fudge is not running to oppose Pelosi because that was. Title, Marcia fudge is a congresswoman from the great state of Ohio, which is where I'm from. And basically she met with Nancy Pelosi. She was going to run against her and then Pelosi has revived a committee on voting and she's putting Marcia fudge in charge. And Marcia fudge, Dan is not going to run against Nancy Pelosi. Now, Nancy Pelosi needs to hundred eighteen votes to be the speaker. She would just make it may be. But if she doesn't they're probably going to change it wolf. Wow. Crazy. Have a great thanksgiving holiday, and thanks so much Ellen. Thank you. All right, lily, Dale. It is in my future lily, Dale for those of you who don't know there's been documentaries on it on this this town, and it's an interesting place. It's the world's largest center for the religion of spiritualism. Basically, there's fifty mediums there. There's education and workshops on healing and personal growth and all kinds of things, and it was a place that was incorporated back in the late
