Maybe Let's say 11 o'clock at night until five in the morning. Why don't they do that? I don't know why they don't. Well, we'd have to bring big lights out. Yeah, they do that from time to time. They do do that. In fact, I remember I'll never forget. Being outside of Chicago long time ago, But they were ripping up the mega things called the Dan Ryan. Whatever it is there, but they were ripping the whole thing up. It seemed like Didn't work during the day. They were out there one o'clock in the morning, and they had like it Looks like you're on the sun. It was daylight is amazing that that we should be able to do this anywhere. Now. The next one, they're going to screw up his Michigan Avenue, right? At some point we're going to get someone into an elected office in the state of Michigan and picking on Michigan. It deserves it. And we're gonna knock back all of these stupid United Nations agenda 2030 roads. We're gonna We're gonna take him back. Meaning and we're gonna get rid of these three lanes with huge honking bicycle paths. We'll tell bicyclist to get your ass back on the sidewalk or just take your chances down the side of the road. And we're gonna put these three lane roads back to four lane roads, and I'm gonna keep him back at 45 to 50 Miles an hours opposed to helping step down to 25. People saw them stupid. They can't negotiate the three lane road. At some point, that's if you elect me. You need me to be governor in the state of Michigan. Make me Governor State of Michigan. That's the first thing I'll do. I'm not running on. We've got some time to get to that point, but I'd be pretty damn good at it. Well, I want to hammer this one more time. We're gonna move on. This is huge. Uh, The Johns Hopkins, which is every bit as big shot is Vanderbilt. Baylor. What Sloan Kettering. I'm using a few of them all of them. Uh, University of California medical schools. Johns Hopkins is now I guess you could call it made a statement because one of their professors came out. On made a statement and they haven't shut him up. Haven't fired him, haven't told him stand down. He's saying that natural immunity works really works well, strongest, immune it in all the land with regard to China with regard to China murder virus, and he's saying that We have a herd immunity now. So we can knock off this. Uh, running around with diapers on her face. Suggests that 80 to 85% of Americans are currently protected from the virus. Given the data given the date of the infection data, this is good. Natural immunity works. We've got to start respecting individuals who choose not to get the vaccine instead of demonizing them. Yeah, well, how is it that anybody could do that? And get away with it. How could anybody stand there and do that? And that somebody say shut up his first time in history, mankind has been forced to take a backseat when they're offering a lottery for you to get the vaccine. When they're offering believe it or not free French fries, a fast food chain in New York. If you get the vaccine, doesn't that tell you that something's really, really, really insane? That there's some motive that has nothing to do with actually saying, I think I'll get the vaccine. Yeah. When you can't when you can't get people to get it based on what the vaccine actually is, and the data there in what's what's up with that? No, I'm not a conspiracy theory out. If people have it, God bless. I would never vilify you or say you made a mistake or anything like that. That's your choice. Whatever and A lot of people are saying now that because of the way the vaccine works, biochemistry speaking, biologically speaking with hijacking your DNA's into producing spike Protein of China murder, there's a lot of people are saying there's gonna be some bad outcome. Maybe six months to a year down the road again. I'm not trying to scare you. But That remains to be seen. I in my heart of hearts think dead ain't gonna be that It's not gonna happen. Your body's gonna adjust to whatever they pumped into you. You're gonna be okay. But I don't want to do it that way. I don't have to do it that way. And you're you're vaccine is only as good as whatever the run of the vaccine is already talking together. Get a booster now. Meaning in the next China murder virus. Last shot for these caught flu season. Not anymore. Next, trying to murder virus season you're gonna have to get that. That vaccine stepped up because your antibodies don't work anymore..
'Coming 2 America' Goes Heavy On Nostalgia
"Too heavily on nostalgia. Unless you're a huge fan of Eddie Murphy's classic 1988 film coming to America, and lots of people are there's not going to be a lot for you, and it's less than inspired sequel Coming to America. We celebrated her 30 years absolute and prosperity. 30 Years of service. Well, great nation on 30 Years off Delicious fast food. The new film begins with Murphy's Prince Akeem Joe Fair, opening a fast food restaurant called McDowell's in the African Country of Amanda Devote ease of the first movie. No. This chain is owned by Akin's American father in law, played by John Amos, who denies his business is in any way a rip off of another well known burger joint. They've got egg mcmuffins way that a mixed up in this way are also celebrating my new beyond big mix burger, So there's no meat. There's no meat. Maybe we're getting much better with Pepsi Call Max here are subtle as a sledgehammer. This scene mostly gives us an excuse to see Amos and Louie Anderson, who also appeared in the first film, The Story of the original movie was a black centered fairytale. Murphy's a keen came to America, Queens, New York, of course, tow avoid an arranged marriage and find true love in the new movie. After the death of his father, King Akeem discovered he fathered a son unknowingly in America. Teams return to Queens brings one of the Sequels funniest moments when he revisits a local barber shop where movie magic allows Murphy and costar Arsenio Hall to play multiple parts. Just like in the first film can't be both famine and blood. Damn, Nelson Mandela and Winnie just discovered that I may have a bastard son here in this land conceived during my last visit. How much data supports you getting from the King pays no child support. No time for 30 years and you came back. You're the damn it. Comic Jermaine Fowler plays the sun. Lovell Johnson, who brings King a came home to meet his mother marry played by Saturday night Live alum Leslie Jones. My African I told you he was gonna come back. So you know this man. I definitely know this man. I know this man all the way live much as I love Leslie Jones, she and levels. Other American relatives, including Tracy Morgan, as his uncle Come off is uncomfortable stereotypes as King Akeem introduces his son to the moonda and pressures him into an arranged marriage. Comedy gets clunkier and more predictable, like a Mel Brooks style parody of the Black Panther of The Lion King and the first coming to America. Ultimately, this coming to America is mostly an excuse to bask in the glow of characters who's shown so much brighter and distinctively. 33 years ago. I'm Eric Deggans.

A Special Conversation with Congressman Ritchie Torres
"Representative ritchie. Torres is a freshman member of congress. From new york's fifteenth congressional district. He is proudly progressive and proudly pro israel and we had hoped to have him on to talk about how important it is to make that progressive case for israel the riot at the capitol changed our plans unfortunately and he joins us now to talk about what comes next representative torres so much for joining us and honor for me to be here. Last wednesday was extremely scary for all of us. But i can't even imagine what it would have been like to be in the capital for it and we're also not entirely out of the woods yet with possible. Threats still brewing. Think so let me start here and just ask this. How are you holding up. It has been the most draining and disorienting week of my life. If a year ago you had said that. I would become a member of congress during infectious disease outbreak and that i would witness of violent insurrection against the us capital during the electoral college. Vote count and that i would then impeach donald trump. Not only once but twice. I would have said that has the feel of movie. I'm still in a state of shock. And i'm in a state of shock that a sitting president would instigate a violent mob to storm the us capital in an attempt to overturn the results of a presidential election. You are among the members of congress calling for the house to impeach president trump again. Although i suppose this is your first time impeaching him and that's a process that looks set to move forward this week. People are also talking about a resolution censuring ham or demanding resigned or using the twenty fifth or the fourteenth amendment's to remove him from office. What would satisfy you hear. What kind of action do you think that this moment calls for will. The best outcome is removal. And we've presented the vice president would alternate him. Is you invoke the twenty fifth amendment or else. We have no choice but to move forward with impeachment. It is clear that the vice president refuses to invoke the twenty fifth amendment in conjunction with a majority of the cabinet so we have no choice but to impeach donald trump the violent mob. He unleashed on the. Us capital represents unprecedented assault on the separation of powers between the congress and the president. A represents an unprecedented assault on the peaceful transfer of power from one president to the next if striking at the core of our constitutional republic is not an impeachable offense. Then what is impeachment for no choice just moments before you and i connected. The new york times reported that senate majority leader mitch. Mcconnell is actually pleased with the impending impeachment. do you think with mcconnell. 's implicit blessing. There's actually a chance that the senate might remove president trump from office so there are three outcomes spouse majority is required for impeachment a senate super majority is required for conviction and then once impeach convicted a senate majority is required for disqualification so the ultimate goal is not simply removed donald trump from office but to disqualify him from ever pursuing federal office again because he has shown himself to be a lethal threat to the republic is clear and present danger to the constitutional republic and what about aside from president. Trump are their members of congress. Either with you in the house or in the senate who you think crossed the line in what took place last week. There were several enablers of donald trump in the united states congress and elsewhere who spent months inflaming the disaffected supporters of donald trump. One example is congressman. Mel brooks went to the march and instigated an armed angry mob to vote. Take names and kick ass. He should be held out. We as elected officials have to be mindful of the words believes. What does it mean to be held accountable in this instance though. What does that look like expulsion at the conduct of for me. The attempt to overturn the results of an election the attempt to instigate a violent mob to take over the us capitol if that is not grounds for expulsion. That i honestly don't know what it's these members of congress and donald trump inspired a violent mob that led to the murder of police office was bludgeoned to death by a fire. Extinguisher are their image. Is of a rioter in the senate chamber wearing tactical gear with plastic handcuffs. As though he were planning to take hostages right. I'm convinced that there were rioters. Who were intent on apprehending and assassinating members of congress. The majority leader the speaker and even the vice president is a video of rieter screaming. The vice president should be hanged a news and a gala were erected outside the capitol and the president was tweeting out against his own vice-president in real time while the capitol was under siege was pouring more gasoline on the fire above violence. He put not only congress at rescue. Put the life of his own vice president. Aris one of your fellow freshman members Also said something to the effect of when speaking to people who are concerned about the outcome of the election He said it's okay to threaten them a little right. It's okay to to threaten members of congress a little. This was madison cawthorn from north carolina in addition to representative brooks. Are there other people who you think you know. Their actions kind of rise to a certain level needs to be a conference investigation to determine which members of congress had a role in inciting insurrection. Against the us congress which is disqualifying which should disqualify you from holding office and it's worth pointing out that. There was a deep strain not only racism antisemitism among the elements of the violent bomb. If i recall correctly one or several of the writers had a shirt that read kim auschwitz. You had confederate flags who had symbols of racism and antisemitism white supremacy for aiding the violent mob. That attempted to take over the capital. It should be cause for concern and you know trumpism is going to have more staying power than trump. I worry that violent white nationalism. Violent antisemitism and racism is going to be a fact of life that will continue to haunt us. Now i think of politics as an alternative to violence. Politics is about the resolution of conflict by means other than violence and if there is a set of the population that loses confidence in politics that sees it as illegitimate and trump has convinced them. That it's illegitimate then. That segment is going to resort to violence. The d. legitimation politics is an open invitation to violence. And i think the jewish community in particular has the most state because history has taught us that paranoid. Conspiratorial politics is often a breeding ground fantasy sentences. I know if we have the most at stake or among the most at stake but certainly everything that we saw last week out of that riot was vile but certainly the racism. The anti semitism really terrible to our listeners. Who don't yet follow. Ajc dot global on instagram. I would encourage you to check out the instagram slider that our team put together detailing some of the anti semitism that the congressman talks
