San Francisco Voters Oust Three School Board Members in Recall Vote

"As you know, parents are rising up to take control of their kids education, or taking back control from the public sector teacher unions from the powers that have been teaching this woke orthodoxy, this radical, sexual education, mask mandates, vaccine mandates, and quietly below the radar, there was a recall effort that was launched in San Francisco to recall school board members. Last evening, San Francisco school board members, three of them were ousted in a landslide recall vote landslide. San Francisco has successfully recalled three members of the city school board. I'm reading from the post millennial dot com, after a vote Tuesday, showing that residents of San Francisco were overwhelmingly in favor of removing the progressives from their posts. And the demographic that turned out in large numbers to remove the school board members were Asian American voters. One of the main reasons were they saw the policies of the school board to be anti Asian and their right. Because CRT was starting to be used for admission policies and public comments. For example, Asian Americans were being explicitly discriminated against in admissions to schools across San Francisco. We already know that's been happening in colleges. State senator Melissa Melendez shared the results, which revealed the school board vice president Allison Collins, school board president Gabriela Lopez, and fagua, maliga would all be removed from the school board. With those in favor, compromising over 70% of the vote. So when they were actually put up on a ballot, 70% of the people in the local area wanted these school board members removed. San Francisco mayor London breed. I think she was the one that was in the nightclub where she said she was feeling the energy for not wearing a mask. She said, quote, the voters of this city have delivered a clear message that the school board most focus on the essentials of delivering a well run school system above all else. She has previously slammed the school board for being too concerned with political agendas. This is the same school board. I don't know if it's a specific school board, but it's part of the whole kind of geographic educational complex that wanted to rename the Abraham Lincoln school. Because Abraham Lincoln was a white supremacist.

It includes $16.5 million in funding for communications and operations. 185 million for our health response, 62 million for food distributions and programs that are pit stops. 183 million for housing and shelter programs. It's important to remember that this funding really assumes that we don't see any major surges. If that happens, we will need to divert. Even more resource is and that's why it is so critical that everybody does its part, their part to stop the spread. Thiss stretches beyond June, and there's going to be even more of a drain on our budget next year. But the mayor warns the workable budget relies on federal reimbursements and cares Act dollars. San Francisco, like other cities and states is suffering a deficit due to the pandemic Breeds budget relies on reserves to close an estimated $1.5 billion budget gap over the next two years. It also uses $93 million from the General Fund.

We are currently carrying for 88 San Franciscans with covert 19 in our local hospitals. That is a slight drop from last week. Remember, it is an almost 25% reduction from our peak in July. We're currently finding about 85 new cases of covert 19 every day. That number has started to drop from its high point a few weeks ago, but it is still a cause for great concern.

"Katie Watkins in Houston. Enhanced unemployment benefits of an extra $600 a week expire at the end of the month. And as NPR's Susan Davis reports what happens next to millions of out of work Americans it's up in the air. Congress is likely to continue some form of expanded benefit, just not in time to meet the current expiration date. Democrats want to extend the additional $600 per week benefit through January. Republicans oppose that, because they say it's too much and it's stopping workers from going back into the workforce. Republicans are coalescing around a plan supported by the White House to provide up to 70% of a worker's pre pandemic wages as long as it doesn't exceed $600. Either way, a deal remains out of sight.

"Sure that resource is that we put into the police that could be better spent on public health and social workers and public services that are communities desperately need are getting those funds as opposed to just going to the police, which Are driven primarily in a lot of ways by violence, diverting budget funds from police departments to social workers and public services is exactly what some cities are now doing. San Francisco MAYOR London Breed says police will no longer respond in non criminal calls and mental health emergencies. New York Mayor Bill de Blasio wants to redirect a $1,000,000,000 away from the city's police budget and into social services in Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti recently announced that he wants to reallocate $150 million of the LAPD is budget towards health and job programs. This is bigger than just a budget. But I want you to know we will not be increasing our police budget. DENVER, Colorado launched a program in early June that already does with these cities aimed to do instead of sending law enforcement to mental health emergencies. A 9 11 dispatcher since a two person team that consists of a paramedic and mental health clinician. It's called the support team assisted response or star for short, and it's administered by the Mental Health Centre of Denver, not the police Department. Carly Salon is the mental health clinicians on the two person team. We have used the criminal justice system as the de facto mental house system for far too long on DH. It clearly does not work. Salon says The star team has more time more options and more training when dealing with people with severe mental illness. It's modeled after more than 30 year old program in Eugene, Oregon, called cahoots short for crisis assistance helping out on the streets. Both star in cahoots are non police response teams. Officers on Ly get involved when a situation has the potential for violence. Here's cahoots intervention worker Ebony Morgan on CNN recently out of 24,000 souls, only 150 of them did We wind up meeting toe Ask for police to assist us. Salon says A recent encounter with a woman bathing in a public fountain is a good example of how she approached the situation differently than law enforcement. No officers may be concerned about her and take her to the yard for evaluation, right, which isn't necessarily you know the absolute wrong thing to Dio, but it's not what she needed. After a brief conversation, it was clear that she wasn't bathing in the town because she was psychotic or or not, you know, Based in reality, she didn't have a place to shower in one threats off. Denver star program is a six month pilot, funded by a 2018 ballot measure not redirected police budget funds. But Salon says it shows the non police response teams are not only viable. You can save cities money by diverting people away from jails and unnecessary emergency room visits. Cahoots reports that it saved.

"In the middle of this pandemic. There's a lot of questionable information flying around and with social media right with fake science confusing warnings corporations media outlets and even government officials are capitalizing on the uncertainty. But this is hardly the first time that casting doubt on science has been used to spread. Fear and disinformation in fact experts say that decades of undermining science related to pollution and climate change has paved the way for Kobe. Nineteen denial recent data from private research. Firm Yuna cast shows that in places where people are less likely to believe climate change is real. People are also less likely to engaged in social distancing and other behavior changes related to cope in nineteen to look at all of this. I spoke with Jerry. Taylor President of the Niskanen Center a nonpartisan policy. Think tank and a former climate skeptic along with Amy Westervelt editor in chief of drilled news. Who's looked at how? The strategies for disinformation are similar for climate change and the response to cope in nineteen. I asked Jerry Wind denial of Kobe. Nineteen feels like a deja-vu for climate denial. Well for twenty three years. I was in the climate skeptic business before I changed my mind so I know that world reasonably well and the arguments. We're hearing underplaying the danger from Kobe. Nineteen challenging the body counts complaints about the errant estimates with regards to be Danger of becoming infected are the exact same kind of arguments you hear off against climate action. They're often offered by the exact same people as if there's a new business line for climate denial lists and now they run into over. Denial is business. And it's anchoring in the same sort of psychological buttons that are being pressed lots of narratives about conspiracy lots of people complaining about too technocratic elites who have nefarious agendas on hand. It's the exact same wine in a slightly new and refresh bottle. Amy Can you take us through? Some data in terms of how different studies have been used to deny science for example it's more qualitative than quantitative. I would say there's sort of very specific types of talking points that you see over and over again in science. Denial writ large. Can you give me some examples of phrasing or ways of presenting some of this information that you think have caught on? There's it's a bad flu stories that you started to hear early on and now people are reverting back to you and questioning the authority of whoever saying that social distancing works and questioning models and you know in general using some of the ways that scientists speak in the way that science research works to question it and this happens in climate science to you know. There's uncertainty baked into science. It's how scientists talk it's part of how science research funding happens to. You know you never read a study. That doesn't end with more. Research is needed. 'cause that's that's kind of how researchers get their next grant. It's really easy for a skeptic to come in or someone who wants to sort of deliberately create doubt and confusion and say look. The scientists aren't even sure about how this is happening or look models. Which again the way that models work. They include lots of different variables. They include extremes and there are definitely valid critiques to be made of how modeling works but pointing to the most extreme possibility in saying this is ridiculous therefore we should scrap all models and not believe scientists is like. It's a bit ridiculous but it's a tactic that gets us over and over Jerry. Tell me a little bit. About what kinds of work you did in the past and what insight you feel like that gives you into this moment. Where as you say. Climate Deniers are approaching cove in nineteen with a similar playbook. Well a lot of it is just a psychology. This I mean after all if there is a market demand for something someone's going to produce the supply. There is a market demand right now for Cova skepticism and Kobe. Denial ISM why because of the Republican Party or at least the Maga- hat wearing wing of the Republican party is desperate to get the economy firing on all cylinders before November so that trump has a chance of reelection and so for that reason there's a tremendous amount of what science has called motivated cognition to believe these Cova denials stories motivated. Cognition is what David Hume says when he says that reason is a slave of the passions and where your passions go social your reason go so I really don't doubt that a lot of the people who are peddling. Kobe nihilism have talked themselves into believing bjorn. Lomborg is one of the most prominent climate sceptics even though he is not a trained scientist in this area Had a twitter thread the other day just sounding Like a flatter or with regards to the mortality rates associated with covert nineteen to same goes for Richard Epstein at Hoover Institute. I mean it just never ends and again I. I don't really think this is so much. A matter of people schilling complete garbage for a paycheck. I think what we've got here. Are People Desperately WanNa believe a certain narrative they talk themselves into believing it and just like in the climate denial world? Most of the people who are engaged in this war are denial. Nihilism have no training on what they're talking about. I mean they literally have no idea what they're talking about That they can I'll get out argue that people who spent their whole lives in epidemiology of are in the time in which that was comforting to you. What was it that you found so appealing? Well I mean I. I was born and bred a libertarian. And so I was highly motivated defined arguments against state action do X. Y. Z. And so I fell into that trap of motivated cognition but one of the things that Served me well? In the climate skeptic business was just cherry picking data you focus on one study Which looks like it gives you some anecdotal support for your position and you ignore the thirty studies. That have different outcomes are different findings or you Accept at face value narratives from trusted scientists that utterly misrepresent the mainstream point of view when you pedaled as if these people are a bunch of crackpot lunatics and hit turns out there really not And we see a lot of that right now with Cova debate. I mean all of the same sort of dynamics. The misrepresentation of mainstream science as amy mentioned the exploitation of uncertainty. We know a lot of things about climate change but they're still a wide variance between the lower end in higher rents barrios of future impact. And while the climate skeptic community fees off that just like in the Govan nineteen conversation. There's a lot about the novel corona virus we simply don't know there's going to be a wide range of estimates out there and it allows people exploit we have seen jerry protests around the country. And I guess I wonder for a viewer or someone who's casually observing on the news. How do you parse out who might be a paid actor? And who is someone who says I really WANNA open my business again. Well it's almost at least as far as the people who are marching In the street or olding signs entirely the ladder and none of the former small business owners and individual Libertarians and fed-up mega hat wearing trump is And people who are generally outraged over the fact that they can't wait through his see dead bodies to get their cup of coffee in the morning. But what's more relevant here is. Who's organizing this and it turns out the same corporate and ideological actors that are underwriting. The climate denial movement are largely involved in now trying to put together these sorts of back door protests. There was a story last week. About how a new alliance with American Legislative Exchange Council Heritage Foundation Club for Growth and a few other ideological actors. They're also involved in climate. The nihilism at now joined together to Argue at the state level for immediately reopening the economy and return to normal. So it's not as if what you see somebody olding assigned you think is Spouting nonsense. They're all paid actors. Who are doing it for a check. most of the time people honestly legitimately believe what they say? You have to have a little bit of interpretive. Charity by organization doesn't happen by itself. That's usually where the more important stories amy. I was wondering if you could sort of explain the term. That's called ASTROTURF and how it fits into this so astroturf being is basically fake grassroots activism that is generated organized by an industry or political group funded kind of organization that is posing as a consumer advocacy or a voter advocacy group but is actually pushing an agenda for a particular industry or political group And there are tons of examples of this in the climate space. And now you know you're sort of seeing this in the Kobe base where protesters are real. But they've been organized and in some cases Kinda.

"Not taking into account the difficulties there and the difficulties in logistics in not only moving people to hotel locations but trying to keep them there and trying to make sure that we increase our capacity by bringing in city workforce Disaster Service workers are every city employees. A disaster service worker. And when we make those 'cause we have over thirty percent of our city workforce saying no Because they are not necessarily comfortable with those jobs or for the other reasons I mentioned about Taking care of their kids or a family member at home and being concerned about their health and wellbeing. And so this is the age of social distancing. And I think that it's a lot more challenging. Not just for San Francisco but for anyone with a large homeless population so to expect us To all of a sudden opened up every hotel room and have the ability to take care and houses this group of people and things will get better is is not necessarily realistic. Why not do universal testing in the shelter? So that's something that one of the San Francisco supervisors has suggested as a way to have a broader sense of where the virus stands in population again not realistic. We are already experiencing a shortage with testing. Where unfortunately we are in a position where we can only test people who exhibit symptoms. And we are doing contact tracing so that we can start to test more people like we did with the shelter in this case we brought in an operation to actually test people in this shelter but what we had also were people who after we asked him to stay and wait for the results. They left a shelter And the fact is even if we test everyone then the next day depending on what kind of contact. They've had with someone they could get the corona virus right away. That doesn't solve the problem again. We're talking about a population. In in many instances that are non following The the directions that we're giving them in order to keep them safe and the staff. That's trying to serve them. Say So it's just not realistic It sounds good. And wouldn't we want everyone to be tested But the shortage is that not only exist in San Francisco but in the entire United States is not something that's necessarily within our control. Yeah California has been sort of lagging behind a lot of other states when it comes to testing according to data from the Cova tracking project. Do you know why that is I don't have I think I don't completely understand why we we. We have ordered I think maybe has something to do with Everybody in the. Us is ordering the same thing. We're all looking for ventilators. We're all looking for swabs We can run the test easily. We have the capacity to run a number of tasks but there's the swabs That are are challenging to access and I think that you know the challenges. What we're experiencing is not unique to San Francisco's happening all over the country and the lack of coordination from the federal government to help assist cities especially large cities. Add experiences challenges is really What I think one of the problems is with in terms of access to these tests but I also want to be clear that we've come a long way. We are able to test anyone who exhibits symptoms right away and provide test results within a day or two We've come a long way from where we were before where we hardly had access to anything and We are doing everything we can to make sure that that's taken place and now with contact tracing Our goal is to test people who don't exhibit symptoms but who have had some level of contact with a person who has tested positive. That's going to be important as we look at reopening cities and trying to basically keep a lid on this virus But we also definitely need more test kits speaking of the future San Francisco's expected to face a one point seven billion dollar budget shortfall because of Kovic nineteen. Which means you're going to have some very tough choices facing you. How will you address those revenue losses in the budget? Well a few weeks ago. I announced an economic recovery Task Force Which involves city elected officials Labor the business community and others To begin the process of Preparing for what happens. After we start to gradually reopen our doors Because for example when we think about our restaurants and what might happen new guidelines that may be implemented. What will that mean for their ability to pay their rent to pay their staff to bring back all their staff and also their overall overhead. Is it going to be more expensive for them? To do business. And what do we need to do as a city to support that? And what does that mean To the revenue that we generate and also tourism. Which is a huge industry in our city. What does this mean for The revenue that we're able to generate. We have to start planning for that sooner rather than later. And we're GONNA have to unfortunately make some hard choices In this process because this is like nothing we've ever experienced before but again it's not unique to San Francisco. The entire economy in the United States is going to be tremendously impacted as a result of this virus Not to mention the dollars that we won't be reimbursed for from the Federal Government for all the money that we're already spending For our business community but also in order to maintain and manage this pandemic the cost of what we're spending for p. p. e. and all of those other things play a role into the challenges that I know we're going to face but I also I'm hopeful about the future and we're going to have to make some adjustments so that we are able to bring our economy back and it's GonNa take a lot of patients Is going to be a lot of heartache? And it's going to take some time. Finally Mayor Breed You launched the city's first office of racial equity last year and looking at the data. We can see. Twenty-five percent of positive cases in San Francisco are among Latinos though they make up only fifteen percent of the San Francisco population. I wonder you plan to use that office to address some of the Kobe nineteen related. Inequities that we're starting to see across your city and across the country. Well I think that part of What's important Is that from the day? One our Emergency Operation Center has incorporated. the Office of Racial Equity into the decisions that we made for outreach to communities that usually are disenfranchised and so part of what we are doing is continuing to work with these communities to encourage them to get testing and also we have to remember that in many cases not only are these folks serving as essential workers but in some cases they have to be able to find work in order to take care of their families or they're living and congregate living settings or They're living in households with a large number of people and so we see that the inequities that exist in our society. Where you know. Oftentimes a poor are more impacted In a negative way. Especially when there's a pedantic this is what we're seeing play itself out not just in San Francisco again but all over the country and and part of what we have to continue to do And what I'm proud that we are doing with our office of Racial Equity and the Human Rights Commission is are deliberate investment in providing Food and providing mask in providing healthcare free testing a weather. You have health care or not in providing to people who are do not have healthcare and reaching out to those communities and providing hotel rooms in order to make sure that. For example if you're in a congregate living and no one else test positive but you test positive we can move you into a room and and and and make sure that you don't impact your other family members so there are a number of things that we're doing here in the city in order to address the inequities that exist and We're going to keep doing it. Mayor Breed thank you so much for your time. Thank you London. Breed is the mayor of San Francisco California.

professor at UC San Francisco doctor to thank you for being with us and it's a very busy time for you Dr sure there's a lot of fear in the community right now how much concern should people have what level is appropriate I think we should be worried we we definitely should be concerned because we are starting to see some cases of of the virus circulating in the community and by that I mean cases of infection where we don't know where it came from we don't know how this one individual ones from Solano county became infected and we also do not know how the second case in in Santa Clara county became infected as well so I think we should be worried we should be but at the same time we should also be quite vigilant and really be able to keep in touch with the with the guidance from our public health agencies and manage medical authorities which is to make sure you wash your hands to make sure you don't touch your face after that what else would you recommend for the recognition would not be too old to wear masks for instance not at this time yet we still do not see definitive evidence that we have community transmission we have lots and lots of cases that are being that that that are circulating in the community but the other thing would be to get your influenza vaccination because it's still the fact that influence is far more common than than getting an infection from this virus and so if you get your influenza vaccine vaccination that's just to protect you from that it's not going to help you with this new virus that yes yeah the influx of the influenza vaccine doesn't protect you against this virus but it does protect you against influenza and influenza this year has already been responsible for thousands of deaths so it it's it's just to put things into proportion your risk of actually getting influenza is still far greater than your risk of getting infected with this fires on their website the centers for disease control says quote the potential public health threat posed by code nineteen the formal name for this virus is very high both globally and to the United States where do you think we are in the trajectory of this virus how do you expect it to evolve well well right now we're actually seeing more cases of the infection from the virus outside of China it used to be that the vast majority of cases were in China but I I think as of yesterday there was a turning point in that we're now seeing evidence of transmission say of the virus in other countries say in South Korea and Japan in Italy and Iran so far it appears that at least the United States we still have very few cases under fifty I believe and out of which nearly all of the cases we're able to track meaning that they're either returning travelers from China that were able to follow do contact tracing on as well as potential individuals who come back because are quarantined these two cases though are the first cases of community acquired transmission where we did not we did not know where they got infected from and do you expect to see more of those will this become a seasonal virus I expect I I believe that that's certainly a possibility one thing that might happen and that may be due due to the characteristics of this virus that roughly about the the majority of people roughly about eighty to eighty five percent of people infected they have mild symptoms that have no symptoms at all it's only the small fraction of say ten to fifteen percent of of of individuals affected who develop more severe disease which is pneumonia so I I do feel that there may be there is certainly the possibility and the CDC has warned of this there's certainly the possibility that we may see ongoing community transmission and more more cases of this virus in the community let's turn now to talking about testing and then therapies so first on the testing yesterday governor Gavin Newsom held a press conference is that the state had only received a few hundred test kits from the CDC and that we needed more can you tell us about the testing protocol and how many more kids do we need well we we we probably will end up needing hundreds to thousands of cats and the reason is that we we need to we desperately need kits that can be done locally one big problem which has been increasing in eight states at all testing had to be sent to a centralized laboratory the CDC and as a result you would have to wait to ask our doctors would have to wait days in some cases longer than you know twenty four forty eight hours two to three days before you get a result back so what's really needed are diagnostic tests that could be done but locally by either the county public health laboratory or by the hospital and I think that the CDC is making efforts on moving that to expect testing to be local and this is part of your work you were on with us short time ago to talk about creating a rapid diagnostic tool yes how is that going so that's going well we we've developed as a point of care diagnostic where input so we can actually diagnosis infection get a nasal swab get some mucus from patient and be able to diagnose an infection within thirty minutes so structurally this this test works the the main challenges right now or is finding a commercial partner where we could that potentially put this test get FDA approval for this test and be able to deploy it so that could be used to to help doctors make diagnoses and if that happens how long would it be until we could see it in action well it's it's my hope that we really need to because of the public health urgency of this thread that we really need to have better diagnostic test so it's not just my efforts but really kind of the efforts as a scientific community as a clinical community we need to have tests that could be deployed within a matter of weeks to months and I think that's the time frame that we're talking about here Dr Charles Chu thank you so much for being with

Finale of the season. You know, what I mean like last year his last year as well as last opening day oracle park finale that means like more individual. Yeah. Sorry. That's okay. It'll be sorry. Let me just it's hard to say. Ride friday. How's that? That's cool. Yeah. I guess finale does I just hate talking about the end of Boetsche in San Francisco. No matter what the wording or the circumstance is going to be tough. But hey, look at least a move to get made. We spent a lot of time talking about it this morning the thing and the move that I liked what Bagley road I buy what he's writing bag. Release piece today at this shows a deference Tabuchi to make this polar moved to make it at least possible to have a decent team at some good. Bumgarner quotes in there too. Like, you could tell Bumgarner is on board with this. He likes it. He think is good for the clubhouse. So the mayor of San Francisco is supposed to be here in like ten minutes. Are you ready? Mayor London breed. Yeah. We have San Francisco zone. Well, it's been since Mayor Ed Lee rest in peace. He was born and raised in Seattle now while he was visitor to the Murph and MAC show, though. Of course. And it's a tradition. We've had obviously Gavin Newsom going back to those days and who else Martinez born and raised in Marin fair enough. So I'm looking for like London breed is the real deal? Jordan might've been really Brown. Brown. Come in here. He's from Texas. Really show. But okay, I wasn't sure when we were on the airline. Lebron really Brown was the mayor. He would have been in Paris. Anyway, you wouldn't have been available. We spent more time flying around Willie. I like Willie. He's dad loves he's really good. Well, okay. That's coming in the firemen cops in the farm, and that says a lot that says a lot for sure. And then Frank Jordan before him was an old San Francisco guy old San Francisco cop, all the Irish San Francisco cop. And then before that was hard Agnes actually emailed me today. Name dropping because Rick Reilly has a new book out called commander in chief arts a big Gulf guy. He's also if you haven't notice are too, big progressive politician. So a book that rips Trump in golf is right up arts alleys, okay? Okay. Rick rallies during a radio tour and actually wants to come on. I was wondering what it anger the masses? If we had a political a guy who wrote a book, ripping Trump's golf game people are angry. No matter what you do these days. So yeah, it probably would anger the audience. So all of a sudden, we got a problem on our hands. You can't say nothing about nothing without somebody off after I tell you the Murph Mexico. Sponsored by the SF giants. The giants. Home opener is Friday. Come celebrate the start of the twenty one thousand nine season and honor Bruce Bochy not in his finale. But as he takes the field that his final opening day house. That's still available. China's dot com. It doesn't get more SF than opening day at oracle park. All right guys because we will go back to and we just hit a lot of giants. They're a little bit on the warriors. And I told you guys I was going to pull back and go big picture. So I wanna do first of all for the I don't know eight twenty crowd. I gotcha. They played forty eight minutes of basketball here came the Denver Nuggets is not ready for primetime warriors won sixteen nuggets one or two. Favorite there? A lot of things to taken that one there. Now, two games with five to play and own the tie breaker. So they're essentially three games up pretty much over Bonnie, Jill pretty much customer this now, right checkout. Bruce Jenkins from his piece today. I loved it. I think this says it all right here this one hundred sixteen and one or two thrashing made it clear that the nuggets don't belong on the same floor with Golden State. Not what it matters, not anytime. In fact, well, it's very true. And that's why we talked about Houston and Oklahoma City is the two beasts in the forest that will give them a hard time. And we're looking right now, we went through the the schedules the tiebreakers and right now on paper San Antonio the inside track to the seven seat. Things could change to see what crazy rusted last night. Twenty twenty twenty that's hard even processed twenty twenty twenty one twenty rebounds and. Twenty twenty one. Yeah.

"Mayor London breed wants to help get housing much faster to help with the homeless situation. I'll talk about what she is proposing. We'll take your calls on what you think about it. But let's kick it off because we have a new nominee for attorney general. He's on the Senate in the committee right now in DC getting grilled and joining me on the phone Phyllis in on what the heck is happening in DC. Westwood one. Congressional correspondent Linda Kenyon, Linda, thanks for coming on the show today. Thank you. My pleasure. So what what's going on with William bar? What what what's been happening this morning with the Senate? Well, this is we're in the midst of what is expected to beat at ten hours of hearing today. This is just day one of the hearing day to tomorrow should be witness testimony. And it's the same committee that did the confirmation proceedings for now supreme court Justice spread is very intense committee, every member has several rounds of questions for the nominee and the Cup that you played when we came into the segment where he sought to assure members of the committee that he will allow the special counsel Russia probe to continue has been one of the main focuses of this hearing yet with so let's talk about that. He had some interesting comments on geopolitics, and what he thinks of Russia versus potential other players on the world stage. Well, he he for instance, as it pertains to the Russia probe at show. He's saying that. You know, Russia needs to be that there needs to be some scrutiny about what may or may not have happened. During this election, the two thousand sixteen presidential election campaign. And that is the main reason why Muller has to be able to do his work unmolested without interference without any political considerations whatsoever. And that a actually said under my watch Bob, referring to Robert Muller will be allowed to finish. So he wants to find out if anything happened with Russia. He says he doesn't know until the investigation is complete. I understand that Senator Hirono just said, I don't know how long I guess in the last few minutes or something she was like just asking us to trust. You is not enough. So there's skepticism from democratic lawmakers about the fact that it sounds like he's saying the right things, but they don't necessarily believe him. Right. And one of the reasons they don't believe him or appeared to not believe him is because of a memo that he wrote before he was even for attorney general that was widely circulated in in the legal community and shared with the White House and members of the Justice department about basically the Russia investigation itself a special counsel's investigation, which time he said in that memo, and it's a nineteen page memo that he felt that maybe the pro Bush overstepping its bounds. And he also addressed the issue of executive power, and whether presidents can be a diet or prosecuted while they are sitting presidents and all of these things have now come back to haunt him. Because he's supposed to be a political and he's not supposed to be the president's lawyer. He's supposed to be the nation's lawyer. And he's saying that. Memo. Basically, it wasn't intellectual exercise if you will. And that essentially he he didn't mean it specifically regarding Muller per se because he doesn't know the exact scope of the Muller probe, and he won't know that until it's completed. Well, I mean, it's it's it's fascinating to watch. What's happening in Washington? DC right now joining me on the phone Westwood One. Congressional correspondent Linda Kenyon now you talked about William bar and the attorney general being the nation's attorney nods the president's attorney and one of the things that were concerned about here in the state of California. We have completely legalized recreational marijuana cannabis for people twenty one years of age or older. And one of the things that's caused significant issues here in the state of California is the fact that it's still illegal under federal law. What what did William bar or have to say about his thoughts on cannabis? Did he have did they ask him about it? I have not seen him being asked that particular question. But he does say that in general that the law is the law whether he's referring to federal or state and that and that it's the rule of law has two to supersede everything else. So oftentimes state law the federal government will not molest state law. But there are times when it will if it has some overarching concern, he's basically saying that the US attorneys are going to have to make a very good case on any instances of this nature, not marijuana specifically cannabis specifically, but the law in general. All right. Well, that'd be very interesting to hear that. Now. One other thing I wanted to ask you about Linda, Linda Kenyon is joining me on the phone from Washington right now is William bar. You know, we talk about the what he wrote about Russia investigation. One other big topic. That's highly partisan in nature is abortion in Roe versus Wade, Casey case apparently back in nineteen Ninety-one William bar said that rove was wrongly decided and that it should be overturned overruled. And do you know if they asked him about that today in the hearings? They did ask him about that. And he again repeated you're very words that he felt that Roe v. Wade was wrongly decided, but that that was regarding overruling that was about eight years in in in existence at the time of his comment and now it's been over forty years in existence. And and he feels now that they just the laws of the land. And that it has precedence, and he that's been challenged and has held up and the supreme court has deemed it. So and therefore as attorney general his job is to enforce the law as the chief law enforcement officer the nation, and that that is exactly what he would do. Wow. Okay. This is again,.
