No, I mean he runs things that Cole's about industry than they can go out and you know, violations and prevent Co from functioning.

"It is election season. And coming up in 1/2 hour of state Senator Pam I. Aveeno she tries to hold on to the 37th District will get her words and but first joining us on the disc Institute of Pittsburgh News line. 2020 Constitution Party presidential candidate Mr Don Blankenship of West Virginia. Thank you very much for joining us on Katie Kay this afternoon, sir. Thank you, Kevin. Glad to be here. Well, you say corruption and ignorance runs wild in Washington, and something must be done. If America is going to return to the country at once was. Can you explain your Third way Plan for America. I think the simplest way in a short interview to explain the third way plans just the founders way things that made America great to begin with, which was doing what was good for America. Stop police in the world. Stop having the lances all over world. And be honest and straight up and tell the truth. Those fundamentals that made us great on the abandoned in minutes, duration or in shape. We are pretty simple of food for thought. It's basically do what's right. You've long warned about China and speaking of relationships and cozying up to other countries and Ah, cozying up with that communist regime as well. You said it would come back to bite us. What did you see? At that time when you started warning that maybe DC ignored or just simply accepted? Well, a couple things you see human nature. I mean, people on people that run countries take care of their country on DH. No, we We made China great. Ah, rather than making our country great. Don't I knew that the Chinese were going to take care of China, and that's exactly what they did know they had a rest on World War two. Japan beat him up really bad, lost millions of people and for us to go in there and and make them great again and abandoned American workers was a terrible mistake, and it was obvious George Washington's even told us not to have allowances with foreign countries. So you're more of Ah, Are you more of an isolationist then? Or just a preg more pragmatic? I don't think I'm an isolationist. I do believe protectionist, few defined protectionist, protecting American jobs protecting American benefits, protecting Americans away a laugh, but Not an isolationist. I just don't believe that we should give our way of life to other countries. And you know, in China, for example, you get a lot of slave labour about of them paid labor and so forth, and we don't need to be feeding that type of culture. We're talking about capitalism as well. Is this election Maura about capitalism or socialism than anything else? Well, I think that's obviously that's the addition situation when you look at come on nurse or bad versus Trump, but it's It's not so much that the system you can have a combination of social programs in the capitalist entrepreneurship behavior. But you have to be honest and you have to be taking care of the country and you have to be Doing the right thing and what we have in Washington as the creation of legal last corruption. What they do is they turn whatever it is they do and illegal, and if it's legal, they think it's not correct, actually is So you say they changed the laws to benefit them and become extremely wealthy. They're one of the best examples, and that's the subject of my lawsuit against the National Republican Senatorial Committee for the federal Government have political action committees that the Senate majority leader of the House minority leader Gentleman already liver have their own political action committees, and they can raise money. While people are asking for legislation to be passed, they could say, you know, bye, influenced or give us a $1,000,000 will Take care of getting your legislation on the floor, Whatever. But the premise of having Uh, these pacts or what they call Hill committees just beats corruption and creates a situation where American voters have no chance to actually choose their own representatives. The average listener hearing this that's the first time they've ever heard something like that. You know that The game's being played in Washington. So you're breaking news? Well, I'm one of the one of the few people that were born into a poor house spent time in the big house from band at the White House. So I understand, Oh, elements of what they do and ah, you know they benefit their families that benefit themselves. But this idea that the government can have political action committees is insanity because You know your place. You have the ability of the Senate majority read leader to raise hundreds of millions of dollars, And they used that money at his discretion. His direction to either attack Canada's he doesn't like a promo candidacy does like And also to influence the media coverage. So you have basically a similar to Russian style propaganda. So yeah, you're almost that almost means like that. Between the Republican and Democratic Party are the two simply colluding to separate us into identity groups and keep us back from our potential as a country. Exactly. I used analogy of there like the rest of you have the good restaurant guy and a bad wrestler. Go and they act like they're fighting each other. But after the flats over there, go and have dinner together to share the wealth. So what's just the audience paid him? And that's what they do. They keep us so focused on the infighting between two major parties that we don't really focus on the real issues from the real issues in expenses. They were trying to police the world trying to engage in every problem in the world. And you know the virus and so forth. We're just not taking care of business. We're just making news with drama.

"Monday through Friday, 5 to 9 a.m. And rewind here. Some of our great gas such over the last 40 minutes we have heard from the Green Party presidential nominee. That would be Howie Hawkins of Syracuse, New York. We just heard from the Constitution Party nominee. That's Don Blankenship. Mr Don Blankenship of West Virginia. We're just presenting your options for 2020. Just in case you are not too wild about your two major choices, Republican or Democrat, one of which some say talks too much. The other Says he hasn't talked enough. Then I didn We shall see. We're 95 days away from the election. In 2016 the Libertarian Party got nearly 4.5 million votes. Their candidate Was a former New Mexico governor Gary Johnson, his running mate for vice president of former Massachusetts governor Bill Weld. Well this year, the Libertarian Party says. I'm with her. Tapping a lady to top the ticket. Dr. Joe Jorgensen of South Carolina is in Pittsburgh. She'll be appearing on just after the five o'clock hour in on the North side. Allegheny Commons. East Park is where she is scheduled to make an appearance. Dr Jorgensen of Clumps in South Carolina recently joined the Katy K Radio Morning show with Larry Richard and me on the disc Institute of Pittsburgh News Line for those that don't know what a libertarian is. Maybe you can explain it for us, Dr Jorgensen. Libertarian of someone who's on the side of the individual. Unlike the Democrats, the Republicans who are on the side of the lobby, a special interests and bureaucrats. And President Trump obviously cut taxes but spending his way up. Joe Biden wants to raise taxes and spend about 500 billion on climate in education. How are you going to be different than those two? We look dramatically cut both my plan would be to get rid of that income tax the federal income tax within the first year. A lot of people don't realize that only about half of our revenue comes from the income tax, and we need to cut government to the sides that we don't even need it. I think on paper. Ah, lot of people would agree with cutting back big government. From a practical standpoint, it's hard to roll any of that back. I mean, look at the tax code 26,000 pages. In. How does anybody sort their way through this red tape? Well, that's just the thing. You can't really sort through it and improve it or make it more efficient. You need to get rid of it because Yeah, It's just too much to go through and actually try to make any sense of it anymore. And I have a Ph. D. I got to use an accountant to get my taxes done, and so do a lot of other people. You mentioned you have a Ph. D. Can you introduce yourself to our listeners here in western Pennsylvania? And what will be a close race? Oh, sure, It's a Ph. D in industrial organizational psychology I teach at university. Which I know that sometimes we play your local college football team and I have been in business for myself. And I also have an MBA in my first job out of school was working for IBM. So I do have some business backgrounds and I have had I've been a small business owner. As well as now teaching We're with Libertarian Presidential Party candidate Jo Jorgensen. So, Jill, if you don't mind me calling you, Joe. Okay in the world that you see we're living in. No one could have forecast Predicted. Necessarily This Cove it 19. Pandemic worldwide crisis. How do you think it's being handled at the presidential level? Well, I think there were mistakes from the start. The first thing Trump should have done is under the Emergency Powers Act. Should have gotten rid of the FDA obstacles to get these new testing kits out. Ah, lot of people don't realize that there were over 60 different American companies coming up with testing kits. But the FDA only approved it two of them, which means that we could not make use of American ingenuity and all this testing kits, one around the world, you know, we kept hearing stories about how health East Asia was doing such a great job testing everybody in getting ahead of it. Well, yeah, That's because you're using are testing kits because we could use him and then he also encouraged everybody on Ly get testing if you have symptoms, but at the time, the prevailing wisdom from the researchers Was that most of the people with the virus either had no or mental symptoms. So, really, we need to get everybody tested so that we could see who didn't need to stay inside. As a Libertarian party candidate. Do you believe in limited government? How do you feel about the the role government has played in shutting states down? We'll notice the states were following President Trump's leave. He was up there every day with Dr Fauci telling everybody the shutdown. I think if, on the other hand he had said, Look I'm leaving the country here into getting past pandemics. We need to get everybody tested. No need to shut down the economy. Let's get through this. I don't think the states would have done as much as they did. There seemed to be a difference of opinion from Dr Paulson and the president at times on how to re open. America, and we're seeing some of the results of reopening America now, and some of that was anticipated. But let's talk about the other layer that's going on around the country, and that's The racial unrest in protests. How would you handle that? To do a better job to lift all people up to an equal setting in footing? Well, first, I'd like to point out that we've got a militarization of the local police forces. And that is through the federal government. Ah, lot of people don't realize that the federal government is one who's been handing out these free tank, some free training and other money to buy other para military equipment. And so what it's done is it's given these local police departments a different attitude. Instead of the servant, protect that you see on the side of the police cars. It's more of an US versus on soldier mentality. So once again of the federal government hadn't gotten involved. I don't think we would have seen the escalation that we've seen. So you know. Once again, the federal government is doing too much, and by getting involved, it's making things worse. And you've been involved with a libertarian party for a few for a long time. Actually, you're Ah, I think the vice presidential candidate at one point former Republican representative from Michigan, Justin Amash was I guess I seen as a likely candidate, but he bowed out pretty quickly There were you surprised? Add to earn the nomination. Well, not entirely If I didn't think I could have one that I wouldn't have stayed in it, But I think I just gave a great message that what the Libertarian party needs to do is we need to show voters how our platform is better and how we can help them. Rather than talking about, you know philosophy as libertarians of an accused about I'm going around and complaining how we've got the best option for health care how we want to bring all the soldiers. So you know Telford, Gabbert was pretty much shut out of the debate, and they didn't want to hear about her talking about Bringing peace to the world. And now we've got a grant to war hawks basically running for office, and I'm the only one who was showing that we can bring our troops home. So, um, I think I've got the best message for the American people. The delegation agreed with that former vice president and Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has said he will choose a woman to be his vice president. Chill running mate and now some suggestion it be a woman of color eyes there Anyone that you think he should choose based on somebody that you would like to say, because your chances of winning obviously are pretty astronomically low. Well, but it doesn't never who he picks. Whoever he picks is going to be for bigger government. It's going to be for taking away people's rights. It's going to be for being okay with putting us all under house arrest when we have a virus come around, so They're all big government, and it really doesn't matter who he picked. Okay of last time. Around 2016 a former New Mexico governor Gary Johnson, was the candidate for the Libertarian Party. The garnered about 3% of the votes. Four million votes in all fundraising will be an issue. Ah think the two main candidates will likely spend of total of about a $1,000,000,000. How can people donate and back your cause? Oh, I'd love for them to go to J O say, 2020 dot com And that like to point out that over half of our volunteers are people from outside the party. So there are so many people who are just set up with basically no choice. That were just overwhelmed with.

"Larry and I talked to on the morning show mid major candidates for president. United States election date. What, 95 days away. I want you to know your options. Some of you don't care for the Democrats or the Republicans. The candidates are putting forth. So we wanted you to know your options. We contacted all five parties on this show multiple times. The Trump campaign always takes our calls and offers a solid represented The buying campaign has not yet but they will. You heard from the Green Party nominee Howie Hawkins moments ago. Now let's go to another third party candidates so called Third party, The Constitution Party based on Lancaster, Pia. On the ballot in 24 states in 2016 just over three months to the election, joining the disc institute, Pittsburgh News Line former CEO of Massey Energy, 2020 presidential nominee for the Constitution Party. And that is, Mr Don Blankenship. Can you describe the party platform for us is about the Constitution and returning to the rule on no requiring that Everybody from the court to the Legislature to the police and their long comply with the Constitution because actually, it was a constant. Shin and the principles of the Constitution that make the country great to begin with. So it's the best hope of making the country great again. And what are your thoughts on people who are trying to maybe rewrite the Constitution or tear down our society as a whole to rebuild it? Well, you know, avenues are processes in the Constitution for amending it then sometimes that may be necessary. But much of what's going on in the country today is no anarchy. It's ridiculous. Tio have the rights that we have and people taken over a box of cities and and you know, I'm on the other side. It's it's ridiculous for us to be so a land with a communist dictatorship, country and shadow trying to police the world. The government's trying to do everything that it's not supposed to be doing and not doing the things that it is supposed to be doing. You were involved in some highly public and publicized Senate races in West Virginia. How would you describe the process that you see now to to elect their officials and how it's been tainted by The media that some accuse us of That's a moto our conversation the what are called Hill committees, and they see which most people aren't even familiar with our political action committees that are controlled. Basically by the government by the head of the Senate, which O r. On the Republican side, or human democratsside or someone like closely, they control hundreds of millions of dollars. That they used to control the elections. McConnell can engage in primaries and spend tens of millions of hours to make sure that Independent thinking Republicans or Democrats can't can't win the elections and the media and in my case after they saw I was going to win, the West Virginia Republican primary came out Called me a fellow who went to prison for manslaughter. Didn't live in West Virginia couldn't vote for us the last week before the before the election was Excuse mint out right on slop of untruth to make sure it'd win because I have come out and said that I would not support Mr McConnell for some maturity leadership position. And you bring a wealth of experience to this race. You're a former coal exact Iran for Senate against Joe Mansion You fought with the media machine as you mentioned and spent time in federal prison will, How will your experiences benefit Washington D. C. Well, I'm up. I'm not running toe benefit Washington D. C to benefit Americans and the way it will benefit Americans is I've lived in everything from the poorhouse to the rich house to the Big House. I know how the system works, and I know how to make changes in the system. So There's a lot of that computer for the regular of Arkham person. Well to say it's a long shot is Obvious for you to actually win. But what do you hope to gain with the attention that you might garner any support you might get that might make some real change at some level. I think one thing we'd like to do is is B. Ah witnessed if you will in the states have very small margins of victory. Electoral College is a stake in Get some. Ah earned media attention to the party that there is a choice out there. That is a return to what made America great again and it That we have recently note. If you will solutions to the problems of this ongoing drama we can we can solve the problems whether it has or has to do with the budget or has to do with term limits or has it has to do with Over that teen or whatever, but, uh, people take time to listen to solutions and quit listening to the ongoing drama that goes on every day. Every year. They see them. We can't ever get a country back on track. Don Blankenship of West Virginia, the Constitution Party nominee for president. Joining us on the disc Institute of Pittsburgh News line, Sir, You mentioned the social unrest in the Constitution earlier, moving to the other big story we're facing. How would you have handled the covert 19 crisis differently? Then of President Trump. The first thing we would never have been involved in a code 19 crashes because we wouldn't have had such a time. The last with Channel get 96% of our medicines of so much of our other products from China basically gave our job's to turn a been complaining about that for a lifetime. But on the practical of face up against covert that scene, you know when we felt with tuberculosis Mid 19 twenties. We quarantine 620,000 people that are infected with tuberculosis. And so we were smarter than than we are, You know, 95 years later. What we should have done those We should have quarantine people that were symptomatic had the vaccine. We should last place to York early on. And, of course, going to mass and cut it off. Lifted at the bird if you will. And we didn't do that. But, you know, we now weigh now know that we should have been quarantined people with the chosen ones. Transfer to buyers, and we also know that we should have been protecting the elderly in the end the unhealthy and so we've dealt with it more effectively 95 years ago, doing with it this time. Don Blankenship Constitution Party nominee for president coming up after the news. We will speak to the Libertarian Party nominee Joe Jorgensen. She is campaigning in Pittsburgh today. That's coming up after the news news radio 10 20 k T. K It all started with the grilled cheese sandwich. Two simple pieces of bread some butter on a slice of American cheese. But.
