"I'd like to ask our guests, can you give us a diagnosis from that point in time, the 8 years of Obama, then the four years of my old boss president Trump and today, what has the evolution of race relations being in America? What is the trendline? What direction are they moving in? When Barack Obama said what he said, it was a code word. The left always talks about the right dog whistle. Yes. This was clearly a dog whistle. When he said acted stupidly, what he wanted to say and implied was racist. But you couldn't say that in 2008. Now I'm going to turn just really quick to a data point. Since 2008, every four years, fewer blacks have supported the left wing ticket nationally. In fact, since 2014, in every off year election, fewer blacks have supported the left wing ticket. What do those black Americans know? Our president, mister Obama, was the first in a hundred years to be successfully reelected while receiving fewer black votes than he did the first time. That didn't happen to Ronald Reagan. He received more, that didn't happen to George W. Bush. He received more that didn't happen to any other president if you successfully were elected. You got reelected. You got more black people. You did the first time. And it's precisely because these policies don't actually work. There was a woman who stood up and asked Barack Obama and if we had had Twitter and social media as broadly available as we'd have now, she'd have been canceled. She asked him, are we back to the pork and beans and wieners period of time for black America? And that's because she could tell she could feel what was going on. His policies were not growing the economy, they were stealing from some and handing to the other, the well connected, but they weren't actually improving the lot of black America. Joe Biden's policies are on steroids doing exactly the same thing. Yes, there are white Americans that are complaining, but there are black Americans that are also complaining and even louder. Every survey, maybe not 100%. But Gallup pew, the mainstream, big pollsters. When asked, do you want more police in your community are less police in your community, they showed black Americans said so, yes, we want more at a higher percentage than any other group. Now, if you haven't heard that, that's because you've been paying attention to the mainstream media and not listening to programs like this, where the truth can be told to you..

"Hungarians are gearing up for one of the most important elections in Europe this year campaigning for it has just begun the vote will determine the political future of prime minister Viktor Orban who has been in power for 12 years now With Angela Merkel out of the chancellery in Germany he is now the longest serving political leader in the European Union and a global champion of what he calls illiberal democracy In April's election he will face a challenge from a united opposition for the first time the coalition is being led by a small town mayor called Peter Marquis On Saturday mister Obama gave his state of the nation speech to supporters in Budapest Your service attack My Friends we have never been so strong Saddle your horses the campaign has begun The time has come for us to ride out expect us in 50 days time to ride in from the right Flank Go for it hungry Go for it Hungarians Jeanne is a Professor of political science at the Central European university in Budapest How significant are these elections Is that extremely important elections or one faces his toughest contest since taking office in 2010 The opposition parties have put aside their differences to back a single candidate And therefore the two rival blogs are neck and neck They are within three percentage difference So the end of the campaign we are decide who will form government in Hungary So the campaign starts this weekend have you been able to judge what kind of campaign would it be It will be a very nasty campaign and the Hungarian political system is extremely polarized and opposition faces uphill battle There is a lack of level playing field And there are various dirty tricks used already in this campaign there were a number of conversations by NGO activists and journalists that were wired and videotaped and these recordings were then edited by some unknown agents and released in a manipulative fashion many people found that phone Pegasus spyware So it seems that the regime is really keen on keeping power and using any means to do so Miss Obama and won by a landslide in 2010 Is this the first real test study faces It's indeed the case that it has never been so close to losing power in the last 12 years That's because opposition managed to unite this time They have chosen join prime ministerial candidate and they back one single candidate in every single electoral district But given the huge disparity in resources And given the fact that the opposition has much less access to media than the government they would still need a medical to win So how credible and popular is the opposition actually They did have considerable amount of support during the primary election But afterwards a smear campaign started against their leader And now they are a little bit behind having said that the fact that the prime minister candidate is a centrist actually rather conservative figure that gives some chance for the opposition to get some voters from the right which would be the first time because typically the opposition is dominated by left wing parties some of them are actually ex communist parties And in that sense their appeal is limited But this time because they managed to recruit this politician who is by the way mayor of a countryside town and father of 7 children a Catholic person Now they have some chance to have support from people who are not otherwise part of the typical clientele of leftist parties That was a Professor of political science at the central European university in Budapest Just a reminder that you can listen to NewsHour whenever you like we've got two editions a day You can find the latest online at PBC World Service.

"An Americans Americans take the health authority seriously and the Democrats seriously. Well, that's why I won't say it's the most important election in American history, this November, but I will say it's the most interesting. If after all the damage the Democrats have done to this country just since Joe Biden was elected and they got both houses. If that does not move the country to the Republican to the Republican side, then it is very difficult to have realistic optimism for the country. It will mean that there is no damage that the left can do and pay an electoral price. And that may be the case. I'm not predicting it, obviously, but I'm just saying that would be that would be the clear. Inference to be drawn. The lockdowns personnel firings, this is from Harvey rich. Epidemiologist Professor of epidemiology Yale school of public health, there's a man who marches to the beat of a different drummer I suspect Yale is such a wasteland. The lockdowns personnel firing shortages in school disruptions are doing at least as much damage to the population's health and welfare as the virus. The state of emergency is unjustified now, and it can't be justified by fears of a hypothetical recurrence of a more severe infection at some unknown point in the future. If the government can grant itself such power, then the limits imposed by the federal and state constitutions are effectively meaningless. They well to the left they are the constitution state and federal constitutions are not meaningless to the left. They're an obstacle to the left. So they're worse than meaningless to them. Jason Riley always has thoughtful stuff. Is that the only husband wife team that is given PragerU videos? The rileys? No, no, it's not because dinesh d'souza then that's the shoes and his wife. Right? That's right. So we have two husband wife teams. And her name is Debbie Debbie, right. Just with her. Well, Jason Riley writes in The Wall Street Journal. So here's a great question. And you know how I know how great the point was that. I didn't know what he would answer his question. Why are there more black coaches in the NFL? Did you read the piece? Did you know the answer when you saw the headline? I did not know the answer. I admit it. Yeah. Not long after it's an interesting story. Not long after Barack Obama became president, he made an appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman. September 2009, the administration's plans to overhaul the U.S. healthcare system had not been going over well in the polls. Some people, including former president Jimmy Carter, were insisting that criticism of mister Obama was racially motivated. Jimmy Carter was a true example of a fool with bad values. I mean, he's a bad combination. He's a really bad combination. He is, you know, I voted for Jimmy Carter just for the record. I'm sure that surprises many of you. Yeah, I was taken in. Evangelical Christian, moderate Democrat, Georgia. I've learned a lot in life, one of the things that I have learned is that knowing a person is religious, tells you nothing about them. This is very sad. For me to tell you this, very sad. Since I believe that good religion is the only solution to human evil. There's a man who taught Sunday school and was a true fool. An arrogant fool, but he talked about humility all the time. Really criticism of Barack Obama was racist? I continue. This is a black writer by the way, writing this. Ask about it, that is the charge that criticism of him was racist, Obama responded. It's important to remember he said to mister Letterman that I was actually black before the election. It's a very witty line to his credit, Barack Obama, in other words, if criticism of me is racist, how do you explain the fact that I was elected? Mister Obama's response was not only classy and amusing. It was based on a certain logic that seems lost on those who were quick to reach for the race card. I mean, he's going to talk about Miami Miami Dolphins head coach who went for the race card. The answer to why there aren't more black coaches in the NFL.

"One more thing about mister Obama building his second mansion in Hawaii. He apparently is trying to retain a seawall that neighbors believe is eroding the beach, I guess he's not too concerned about the beach, and he couldn't be too concerned about global warming or climate change because supposedly climate change is going to cause the waters to rise. He's got two homes right on the water. One for $12.5 million in Martha's Vineyard, and now a multi-million dollar mansion in Hawaii. I mean, I do think at a certain point you've made enough money. Why the long face Barack? You're in Hawaii. On your multi-million dollar property overlooking construction on your new ocean front of state. Well, it seems like his neighbors are angry at him for destroying their beaches. Big green guy, Barack Obama is using a loophole to keep a hundred year old sea wall up, but people say it's eroding their beaches and screwing around with the coastal environment

Welcome back. You just hear your accent hear. The phone number is 404-8704. It is +877-977-797-3745. If you're a long time listener or reader of my one of the things that I've always told you is that demography is not Destiny events can change things and you hear constantly demographically that certain parts of Florida are turning blue younger voters are voting Democrat things are changed. Well, let me just read you a couple of paragraphs here out of the New York Times story. That's out today. It also get highlights for you why there's a growing consensus among some of Joe Biden's top advisors that Florida is not as in play as the polling suggests. The conventional wisdom about the Florida electorate has long been that Miami-Dade counties an avoidable political Destiny was to turn even more democratic as younger cuban-americans replaced the older Home Textiles who formed a powerful Republican stronghold that fate may not have been as predetermined as everyone once thought second and third generation Cuban Americans born in the United States wage continued to drift away from their parents and grandparents Republican party, but in a trend that went largely unnoticed by democrats until lately more recent Cuban immigrants who previously displayed Long Engagement in American politics have started to identify as Trump Republicans. They are not enough to flip Miami-Dade which Hillary Clinton won by a record margin of nearly Thirty percentage points in 2016 with their potential impact to the race has led to an unusually pitched electoral battle in Florida's most populous County this year as President Trump's campaign fights to narrow the Democrats lead and compensate for his expected losses elsewhere including among voters in Suburban women if they can bring Joe Biden Junior's Advantage down to say twenty percentage points the political Mass suggest that Florida a must-win state for mr. Trump could remain in the president's column, even if the Tampa and Orlando region swing slightly towards Joe Biden narrowing the margins in Miami-Dade would be a huge win. So state senator Manny Diaz Jr. A Republican of Highly in the most heavily Cuban city in the country. How do you make that up anywhere else in the state? Democrats have watched with alarm As Trump supporters have organized wage. Huge Caravans that crawl through the streets of Miami-Dade on weekend afternoons featuring trucks that Blair popular Cuban music and fly Trump Cuban and American flags passengers pots and pans a celebrity redisplay typically reserved in the city for Miami Heat championships at times things and become tits last weekend when stragglers from a faith in organized by Cubanos, biting or Cubans with biting intersected with a truck Caravan along Southwest 8th Avenue in the Miami neighborhood of Little Havana men driving vehicles from the truck bounced around at a Honda Fit just decked out and biting signs.

They didn't realize she wasn't a native democratic-leaning Hispanics make up an increasingly large portion of Florida's Latino electorate including younger, Puerto Rico. Dominicans Colombian Venezuelan. Mr. Biden is counting on them to keep his lead to about 24 points in Miami-Dade. That's what it was when former President Barack Obama win, Florida in 2012 that end mister Obama traveled to Miami to try to campaign for Joe by now. Again demography is not Destiny and so many members of the media believe it is but events change things, you know, for example in 2018 Democrats were confident of their wins in Florida, The number of people who left Puerto Rico after the devastating hurricane there and took up residence of Florida.
