Miami Beach mayor on crowds pouring into city

"We want to welcome back to the broadcast. Dan gelber the democratic mayor of miami beach. Mr mayor i. I know you join us in expressing your condolences to the Tragedy The mayor of boulder colorado is going through tonight Local policing is something that has now been focused squarely on us squarely on the city of miami beach. Is you know there were people that thought. Your response was to robust But there were presiding over streets that had been overtaken with people in the midst of a pandemic and first of all. Our hearts are every brian and they are with. All of our city is thinking about Our friends in in baldur's what they're going through its largest question is almost nothing compared to what they're you're doing right now. Our city is a very unusual for us where a destination said he. Typically you know. Seven and a half miles of beaches iconic architecture. We out we embrace anybody who comes here. We love when people create special moments here. That's what we're all about and so right now it's particularly difficult and it's really been recently and i think in in great part because i think we're one of the only cities certainly one of the only major destination cities that are totally open. The governor has demanded that everything be opened in his inviting. Everybody but what's happened is an enormous number of come which has created three major issues. The i heard there's just too many people it's very hard to to manage the secondly there's a number of them are coming with bad intentions and doing things they shouldn't gunplay by the way and the third thing is there's a pandemic going on which doesn't seem like anybody in the crowd really even contemplating notwithstanding our best efforts with the rules were allowed to to To abide by to give masks out and try to urge healthy practices so it's very frustrating. But hopefully it'll be temporary. Utah had heard the coverage. No doubt no doubt you were heartsick over the fact that indeed These pictures were played. And i saw them around the globe. This weekend. They've been repeated in print The allegation was made that the police response was more robust than it should have been Because the crowd was mostly black americans. The allegation was that once they had come together. you had Let it play out. You clearly reached a different conclusion and ordered those streets cleared. Yes you know. This is not spring break as we all think about spring break. Where there's shows sort of mischievous sophomores drinking. Were they should. This was mostly college. Students are older and they're the ones that are problematic. We've had people discharge weapons in crowds thousands of people and peoples running a. We've had people hit by bullets show. It's not something we can tolerate it all in our city. I appreciate that people are concerned about over policing for i had this job. I was a federal prosecutor. I did predominantly civil rights prosecution so pretty attuned to a questions of police force and excessive force. But you can lose control of your streets and we're not targeting any any race. We we embrace anyone who comes to our city. We're targeting conduct and the conduct were targeting. I don't think anybody can disagree. Is not something that a city. A lot of to go on because it endangers not simply beliefs than dangerous a bystanders. In endanger guests endangers residents. And we just really have no choice.

"City Council and Mayor Eric Johnson continue to butt heads over the covert 19 vaccination process. During a special meeting, Councilwoman Carolyn King Arnold criticized the mayor's communication with the council about the vaccine, Mr Mayor, But I'm gonna tell you is that it is much easier for me to speak to the city manager day today than it is for me to talk with you. I haven't spoken to you. Almost in 13 Months Council passed the measure. Allowing the city manager to authorize resource is for back. Seen registration hubs but voted down a proposal that would have required the mayor to send by monthly memos about the covert response.

Ted Danson Is the Mayor of Los Angeles in New TV Show

"Mr mayor is new. Show from rubber karla faye and features a lot of fantastic people and the featuring of a lot of fantastic people is reason to watch it. It's ted danson as the new mayor of los angeles and this is just another one where we're timing is so bad really You know if you are in los angeles you are well aware of what having a somewhat. Bumbling somewhat ineffectual mayor or even having let's just say a mayor whose track record is mixed. Let's just say that. Let's say. Garcetti did some things that the beginning of the pandemic that seemed to be good and then not so much lately. That's an it is it. I'm trying to be tempered. We've definitely had a lot of evidence of what happens in a major city if the mayor is not perfect and so i found myself really kind of unable to laugh at a show where it's like. Ha ha ha. The mayor of los angeles is job is to go to mall. Openings and celery appearances your results on that one may vary as los angelino or at least a los angelino transplant. I also kind of got the feeling that tina fey and rubber karloff. Not so much with the knowing. Anything about los angeles and twenty twenty. The jokes are all really really lazy. Really really facile jokes about california. That in some cases are are two decades old our colleague. Ingo king reviewed it for us and she notes that one of the funniest jokes involves the other candidates who run for mayor against ten danson's character and you stop and realize that the joke that's being made about the other candidates including gary coleman's ghost and a libertarian. Porn star all relate to a recall election. That was fifteen years ago. I mean that is just not finger on the pulse and so all of these things if the show were funnier. It'd be funnier but let's not forget that. Mr mayor was originally conceived as thirty rock spin off that was going to be set in new york featuring alec baldwin reprising his role and baldwin was negotiating for the better part of a year per sources and when he backed out producers went out to ted danson. Ted danson lives in los angeles and did not want to relocate to new york so they moved the show to los an- to being set in los angeles and removed any traces of of its ties to thirty rock. So there's that in the back of your mind

And as quickly as we can resolve it, we're going to Michelle in Brooklyn. You're on w N Y. C with the mayor. Hello, Michelle. There. Thank you for taking my call. Hi, Mr Mayor. Hi, Michelle. Um, hi. I just wanted to kind of curious. I listen every Friday and as a public school teacher, um, put on her lunch break at this time. Get to hear the segment, and I often hear you just talking about the blended learning and the return of students to classrooms and you tend to frame it as a big success. Ondo. Although I understand your heart is probably in the right place. I just wonder if you know an average day looks like inside the school for a kid who was doing blended learning. What do you have a mommy show? Yeah, Go ahead. Well, but I think I can tell you what I know about the day based on the fact that I'm doing this, um If you're sitting in classrooms because we had Option for students to go blended or stay over Mote. It really took double the staff to be able to teach all these Children and so as a result, the kids who are in school in the days that they're in school At least where I'm teaching. It in classrooms with headphones on masks on in front of a zoom screen and usually with WiFi. That is not the greatest on dwindles open, so they're kind of wearing coats and hats and gloves. Hard up gloves. But, you know, scars will be sitting and doing remote learning at school and the teacher who's president, the room is not a subject area teacher. They're not delivering direct instructions there. Simply there. Almost of the Proctor is like a study hall. And so it's just a real far cry from what we think of when we think of kids going to school and let me take you one more step for the mayor before we get a response. What would you recommend to improve it? What I would have recommended from the beginning, I think was that If there had been some uniformed decision, for instance, to go all remote. Um I think a lot of resource is could have been used to bolster that and to make that is powerful and meaningful as possible, rather than attempt to do this, like Lended. Everybody gets a little something, and in a way, it just has done nothing but create more chaos. Your families for teachers or administrators, I've seen just a lot of unnecessary chaos. And it's painful. And I just have a hard time with a week after week, listening to this sort of a celebration of what it has meant to bring Children back to school when going back.

Complaining about the half that he has to give his father Is also a document there. In which tent in which the Bidens the Biden family meeting, Hunter is on his uncle. Go into business with three major Chinese communist members of Chinese organized crime. Very dangerous people, one of whom is and killed subsequently executed. Uh, and it's a deal where they get $10 million a year. 50% of the profits for making introductions. And Hunter gets a million dollars up front from the Chinese Communist. They also set up the office together. However, when you find the secret document, which is in the in the hard drive, there's a secret document that includes an additional part. It isn't in the official papers. The additional partner gets 10%. Off the overall deal. Then, according to 100 texts, actually gets 50% of what everybody else gets. Oh, he's getting a big chunk. The additional partner is described as 10% for the big guy. I'm reading from the text right now. 10% for the big guy. So now you have to figure out who is the big guy. Go.

So he's gonna be in this office of this partnership between the Biden family. In the Chinese communist government, the name of the businesses Hudson West or something. And And finally Now I've been to anonymous Forces What's called who were involved in this deal who have identified the big guy as Joe Biden. And one of them is on the verge of becoming public. I know who they are not at liberty to give you their names, but they have been made known to the FBI and have given statements to the FBI. So basically Basically Basically what you have. Is, um Clear evidence that Biden I was involved. In massive bribery. I think I think it's described this 30 30 years 30 years of bribery, described his people. In the text messages are incredible, breathtaking crimes. In addition to it, there's a photograph section 28 to 29,000 photos that many of them harmless. Some of which Pornographic. Some of which could be described as perverted. And then there was some That, in the words of Hunter Biden's words and the way he describes his activities. Reconstitute. Um, danger to Children. So it was submitted to the Delaware police. Buy me and former Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik. Them to analyze and determine what what exactly is this? There are Pictures of young girls cannot describe exactly how they dressed. But In a way that would be a matter of concern. And there are texts. In which he admits that he's a danger to Children. And then their attacks that make allegations about him that he denies. Even though he admits he's a danger. The Children he denies having taken his clothes off in front of them. Or having face time.

I'd like to speak to number eleven as well. My Name is money show Josh I'm a professor of education at the University of San Francisco, thank you for your support of Culebra Guy Way this is an important moment for Asian Americans Berkeley one in five Berkeley residents is Asian American and we have a long and vibrant history here but you wouldn't know that from our streets our schools are parks and our buildings where at a historic folks are calling in to advocate for a street in Berkeley to be renamed Della Guy. South Asian immigrant who came to Berkeley over one hundred years ago. Anyhow numbers my name is he I'm releasing cal Grad who graduated back in May of this year there really is sincere excitement among the Berkeley student community when it comes to this renaming, I think especially among students of color in South Asian students in particular were all itching to see ourselves represented such concrete way Pun completely intended Hello good evening, Mr Mayor and City Council members leading was Michelle McGowan, and calling in from Washington DC and on behalf of Asian and Pacific Islander Americans in historic preservation I'm here to support the naming of callow. Guy Way to the best of our knowledge. The City of Berkeley has little to no landmarks, monuments or markers recognizing the historical and cultural contributions of Asian Americans or Pacific Islander I for. One and he goes for the Berkeley South Asian radical history walking tour speaking in support of caliber guy way you heard from just a couple of US tonight while others are watching the live streaming APP station of your boat stories of club often ignored by Berkeley institutions, and yet we know that telling of bigger more inclusive history of Berkeley has the power to transform. US and our city, a clever guy we allows us to both honor her and reconcile difficult moments for history. Thank you for voting in favor of caliber guy way giving us something to celebrate during these especially tough times that last person you heard was Bernales Gosh one of the main organizers of this renaming campaign I called her up to learn more I am Barnett Lico. Im One of the creators of the Berkeley Salvation. Walking tour so I would Tim South Asian South Asian American. I grew up in India and moved to renounce five i. you she her pronounce. So we've been doing Berkeley Salvation Radical History Walking tour since twenty twelve and Iran these tourists with my partner honor Van Chatterjee. Through the tours, we take a disappearance in groups of about twenty around the city of Berkeley and make stops at places that are of historical importance South Asian Americans, and we tell stories of resistance in. That happened in the City of Berkeley and those histories go back over a hundred plus years. So we share stories of cure organizing youth organizing after nine eleven, stories of feminist and freedom fighters. And we include stories also of oppression not only that our community has faced but also oppressions within our own community say homophobia or caste system. I asked her how she came to learn about caliber guy and organized this campaign under about an I are always looking for things that happened at Berkeley and trying to understand what the lives of people who live here. especially in the early nineteen hundreds was like when we started doing the tours, we definitely didn't know enough about caliber guy maybe a few years ago. I heard her oral history on the South Asian American digital archives website and I came across both the video and early history where she mentioned Berkeley and that immediately caught my Attention. But there's an extra factor that makes her relationship to Berkeley particularly unique. Her main relationship to the city was that she was turned away from the city and I think that district people up in trying to understand why is it in Berkeley team after caliber guy when she may be never even lived here

Brian on Miami Dade Mare. What I introduce you as today. Miami Mayor. My apologies. That's me having a semi's non senior moment there, All right, so Let's take a look at face. Three. Reopening. Your original reaction seemed a little reserved when Governor De Santis announced the last Friday. At this point, do you feel as though you're on the same page with state? Well, we are because the state has allowed us to do the things that we, uh that we're doing. First of all, let me let me wish the president the first lady of speedy recovery. You know, after they've contracted covert 19 Kind of says that you know, even the most powerful man in the world who gets tested every day and then the people around him get tested every day and still catch the spires that this virus is still around. And it's highly contagious and that we have two can't let our guard down. And so to answer the question. Yes, the governor, you know, allowed us inside the framework of his Order to Ah, to make the changes Tio To that. We think we need here and Miami Dade to keep our citizens safe. We still have You know, positivity rate just hovering around 5%. Yesterday's numbers. I did not like there were above 6% and also we start saw a slight uptick in the number of hospitalizations. I hope that that's not a trend. But, you know, Brian a lot of the medical experts I talked to even the hospital CEOs are expecting a surge here in the in the middle of October. We want to keep those numbers if it happens down as much as possible. Have you been? Encouraged by some of the other occasions. Most recently it would have been Labor Day where we really didn't end up seeing follow through and spikes from some of the added adaptation Tio elements of society. Yeah, But now, Brian, we also you know, we didn't really, you know, let up. We didn't open up. You know a bunch of businesses, and so we were opening up some businesses that, um, you know, I would rather have opened up a little later, We were working on a way to open up bars that had That could operate like restaurants. On DNA. Now, you know, we have this 50% minimum floor. So you know, it's a little tighter than what we thought. Well, we would we would have done But you know again, the governor did allow us flexibility inside his orders, So I'm grateful for that. And you know, and then we we have issued. You know, new order when you orders that comply with all the government governors requirements, and then we maintain some of those orders like no loud music, etcetera. We don't want people yelling at each other inside crowded areas and on DH such but again, you know, look at the end, it's going to be us. It's us that he's going to make. The difference here continue to wear our mass continue to keep our distance. Continue washing hands continue to KP guard and I think that unfortunately, the president's illness, you know, just Illustrates that this virus is still here and, you know, you know you can take extraordinary precautions and still catch it. But if you just take, you know the precautions that we've asked not going to keep you 100% safe, but it will reduce the likelihood that you'll catch it. You make a good point. I mean, the one thing we've known right along is that this thing is 2.5 times more contagious than the flu so and we know that people get the flu and proximity during the season and and so it's that much easier to come by this thing. I wouldn't be. Look, um, interest in having a candid conversation a philosophical thing for for a moment, if you would so. I'm completely with you for the early going in this thing. It's all new. It catches us, you know, off guard, You know, we're trying to figure this thing out on the go. The one thing I always talk about the premise of the premise of anything is false. Anything built on it is to the one thing that I feel somewhat guilty personally for along the way. Well, what makes us different in this country obviously is that we are free were born free and were on the side of liberty and typically government steps in where we would use our freedom to hurt somebody else to impede their rights. And so we tend to err on the side of liberty and personal responsibility. One of my concerns is that we have aired for awhile during the pandemic on government control of essential businesses. Kirk use things like that, rather than putting the onus on personal responsibility. And as you say, we should be wearing a mask. We should be social distancing. We shouldn't engage in good hygiene. Why not put Morris the focus on it? Rather than keeping you know Certain industries and businesses lock down even longer if you had had it your way, for example. Well, because once certain certain industries businesses create a greater risk to those people that maybe innocent which are the the elderly and those that are high risk. And a lot of our elderly live in multi general generational homes. And and so that that is the problem and look well, the restrictions that were placed most businesses were allowed to open on the restrictions that we placed, you know, most businesses well out open and also, you know, fully participate in business activity and the more that we have with mass. Gordon. The rules. You know, the more and more we get used to that. It's not, you know, I found it's not a big deal. I can go outside with a mask and it's not a big deal to make. But I am keeping It's I am keeping other people safe by doing that. I don't know if I'm contagious or not..

"Welcome to our number two of night Side where the telephone number is 617 to 5 for 10 30 or 8889 to 9 10 30 This is Jordan Jordan Riches, the full name of filling in for Dan all this week, eight to midnight, and I appreciate his Gifting me the seat for a couple of nights, and he'll be back next weekend. Our next week. Rather, this story is playing out in Quincy. But it's actually a story that's being echoed and in other parts of the country, and it's nothing unusual to have a mascot change for particular school. But this one Garnered some attention locally, so we thought we'd invite the mayor of Quincy Thomas Coke to join us here. And Mr Mayor. Nice to see you or talk to you again. Good evening. Good evening. I thought it would be sort of helpful to have you here to sort of tell the back story of North Quincy High School's mascot. The criticism it received. But before we get to that, let's talk about the origin of the mascot many many, many moons ago who is Yaku, based on Sure be glad Tio before my time, Actually, I Manaf Quincy High grad, but well before my time in the class of 1957 58 in that range, we're looking for a mascot to go with the name of the sports teams. Red Raiders. And the Adis was different Feed Peter Fredrickson. And the model for it was Alan, a Cuban who was set up I mean immigrants, a big guy football player, and it's his profile. It became the famous Mascot called Mr Yakult in the Yakult is short for you. Q. B in literally was all about this class on Dr Q. B in and He's been an amazing spirit in our community for a long time, so charitable both to high schools. He's given two scholarships and boost the clubs and sports programs. The guy just continues to give and give We, Michael individual so because back to 1957 58 And of course, over the years, it's been questioned and back in the nineties, the Department of Justice actually came in the city based on complaints, and they viewed it and felt after hearing that They found it acceptable. We've had tribes from various Indian trans around the country indigenous folks, but at the time they called them Indian tribes that came in and waited on it. Somewhere posed. Some supported it. Ah, And so it's been a little bit controversial seems to pop up every so many years questionable and it's not so much the The image of the misty, a cool It's what he was God with and he was carrying a hammer. Some people those Tomahawk was a hammer, which referred the hot work. And it had the Indian guard with a feather. In the head, and I would suggest that anyone that went off the high school Looked at the mascot is kind of a symbol of pride and excellence, perseverance. Um, you know, I think for the most part, they were offended by recognizing that, um, you know, Dr Keith and I have had some discussions over the last few years. Hey, took a good hard look at it on by agreed with him timeto changeup, Mr Yakult to meet the changing times. One of the things that struck me was in these times were were living in Ward's statues of being toppled and people are Just storming the gates. This seems to have been a very smooth transition. Whether you agree with changing it or not. It was done by petition. It was not done. You didn't react to one or two individuals. This This was a unorganized. And I will dare say peaceful attempt to make a point. Correct. Oh, absolutely. I think he was going on around the country. And, um, you know, I think on any particular issue, we should be able to sit at the table and try to work things out. Ah, I just think some of this behavior going around is really disgraceful. You know, we have a history of the nation and what? I'm proud of everybody history, But it is part of the history and you know we learned from history we move on from history Week. On. We can change things going forward with this hiss of people were Concerned about it on DH. I do think that it was time to take a closer look. Candidates and discussions with Folks from the masa Tuesday tribe, which was a frenzy tribe. Group of indigenous folks on this the name of Massachusetts comes from a tribe. Ah, and, uh and you know they they were uncomfortable it and certainly we want We don't want to offend anybody and look it. I know that this is just impossible defended by everything right now, But I do think this was a good faith effort by Dr Q B and to try to be more inclusive. And not to be offensive in any way. And never was that the intention Well, well, it's it's interesting because his image is still part of the mascot but describe the the new look and described the uniform if you will. To, uh, well, you know, Quincy, his remarkable history, you know, with the birthplace of John Adams and John Hancock and what we see John Quincy Adams to presidents. You know, John Adams wrote the Constitution. He was the pusher and the revolution. I mean, so he waas the ultimate patriot in that cause, as was Hancock, Hancock funded. Really the early revolution. Without his funding, we wouldn't get very far. So here we are living in an area where was steeped in history about the formation of this nation. So Dr Kuban came up with a great fame of that patriotic theme of of those those Patriots at the time. He's got the tri con it had on the head saying Image, same face. On then, of course, the what would be the Tonio Ah, ga. But the time will be fighting the Brits and the beauty that is, you can change up the jacket. You can throw a football jersey on and you can Put a soccer ball on the end of his foot. I mean, there's a 1,000,000 ways to play with it to make it accommodate particular sports teams or clubs at north but You know the images the same. It's the same face that that the high pressure very look, Uh, but the team has changed up Andi, so farm hearing good things about talking here on night side with Mayor Thomas Coke of Quincy, Massachusetts. Mayor was part of it. I guess it was a ceremony sort of to replace the North Quincy High mascot. You turned it into. Ah, event a positive spin event. But I'm just curious. Was there blow backed it and be honest, we're there. Some who were not happy with the idea. Yeah. I mean, you don't get this in tradition, So they're folks that That's just only change. So you caved in. So I'm just didn't like the new image. It could have been something different, But the overwhelming response that we have received has been very positive that most people like it. And kind of kidding, Lee. You know, the other high school Quincy High now in the mayor both, but I happen to graduate from North. Ah, Quincy High is the Clinton high presidents and Dr Ikuma. Only kidding. We said Hey, no Patriots, no presidents. Interesting twist in the rivalry. Here's Here's a question. Ah, and I don't know the answer. I didn't read it in the print, but They're called. They were called The Red Raiders. Are they still the Red Raiders? Is that the name of the team the red one? The red was kind of pulled out by the Prince took a couple years ago. So it's been the Raiders of last couple of years. Originally the school name Uh, foreign before the mascot teams names were Red Raiders, and at the time Watertown and other cities had red greater so Yakult was an attempt to separate the school from others with the mascot. Look at the time and it was very unique and anything anyone had anything close to the look of Misty echo so no, no, mister, You're cool stands out those questions, though, and it's and that's what makes this Ah ah, brighter tail..

Terrorism expert Neil Livingston doesn't agree with the appeals court decision. The appeals court, of course. I did that The judge made errors and exploring the biases of the jury, and I think that's a weak reason to overturn the case. He thinks putting Tsarnaev to death could have given some of the victims closure but concedes the death penalty is not really effective in dissuading terrorists. I don't think they think about the consequences when they do that. On the other hand, I think it would send a message Tio some of the foreign terrorist, maybe give them some pause.

Pete Buttigieg on Joe Biden's New Economic Recovery Plan

"Comes a covert nine tain. Of doing nothing other than predicting virus would disappear or maybe the drank bleach. You may be okay. Trump is simply given up. He's waved the white flag. He's walked away. This failures come with the terrible human cost. And deep economic toll. Time and again working families are paying the price. For this administration's incompetence. There's no other way to say it then incompetence. Speech at a factory in Pennsylvania today, the former vice president of rolled out his seven hundred billion dollar economic recovery plan today. He outlined his build back better plan near his hometown of Scranton Jr also happens to be a battleground state Biden's pitch comes as another one point, three million Americans filed for unemployment just last week as the pandemic continues as he said to take its toll for more, we welcome to our broadcast people to judge author veteran former mayor of South Bend Indiana, and of course, former Democratic presidential candidate. Thank you for coming on Mr Mayor and when you think about it. Infrastructure was always lying out there. Available to this president. It was a layup shot. It was an open net. All He'd had to do was name as he could have put his name on all those your tax dollars at work signs on the interstates. All he had to do was funded Joe Biden today gave it. A name pledged to fund it with fifty million Americans out of work. It's probably a good idea. No. Absolutely Joe Biden's put forward plan to make sure we're investing in American competitiveness investing in American manufacturing, which will do a lot of good in my part of the country, investing workers, research and development, and you're right, you know infrastructure is one of those things that. Frankly I. think mayors on both sides of the aisle. This president might actually deliver since it's very popular good for the economy. We need to do but. Even, this basic idea a. UPGRADING OUR INFRASTRUCTURE DONALD TRUMP campaign don. Didn't bother to actually do it. Joe Biden will because I think he understands the importance of a tour on. It's been something that's needed attention for some time, but now with our economy in shambles. It's also an opportunity to get people back to work. I want to play for you. Something this is. Telephone interview tonight, Sean Hannity Donald. Trump is how donald trump went after Joe Biden today. And he walks onto the stage wearing this massive mask. There's nobody on the stage, and then he takes off. He likes to have it hanging off usually the left ear I think it makes them feel good, frankly if you WanNa know the truth, and I guess that's okay, but you know when there's nobody around a. you don't really have to do that, but he feels. It's good and I'm okay with it if he wants to do that. He's got the largest basket. I think I've ever seen. It covers up you'll. You'll be wearing a mask to walk. feels. He looks good that way. So Mr Mayor? If he's GonNa litigated mask wearing masks size. What ear he hangs it off of in the midst of pandemic with fifty million out of work I'm assuming side. We'll take that fight. We Will Americans are dying is not a fight that we asked for, but and look nothing about district be political or partisan, listening to doctors should not be a partisan issue, and if you look at among the people, most Americans, trust medical scientists way more than they trust. Donald Trump but unfortunately a lot of his political protectors are allowing this to turn into a culture. Joe Biden wore a mask because he's setting an example about how to save lives, because that's what presidents did, and you know in addition to the bad policies in addition to the incompetent management I think the thing that's costing the American people most right now is. We don't have a president who has any? Any concept of the importance to setting an example of calling the American people who are highest valleys i. that's what Joe Biden was talking about from day one back when we were competing for the nomination, where his campaign was built on the left of the soul of the nation of battle, now underway the nation I think the reason you see our party united and a lot of independence in an increasing number of what I like to call future. Former Republicans all coming together to say that we want to lecture by the defeat. Trump is that you don't have to be a die hard rock real down crash to see that we need a better example set by the American presidency. Must be an interesting time for you as a veteran. You've got senator. Duckworth getting called a coward who hates America by a cable news host? You have lieutenant. Colonel Veneman men, putting in his paperwork. And you have this story of bounties being paid by Russia and Russia's President American lives of your brothers and sisters in uniform in Afghanistan and the Defense Secretary for one is a voice. We could probably use to hear right about now you agree. Do and I think that we need answered quickly about exactly what the president did not only his shocking inaction in the time, leading up to the story, came out his silence and inaction about the issue since. Ever, since the story is broken, I've been hearing from friends that I served with and look. This adds up to pack whether it's the way they talk about Senator Doctors who gave? More, to this country. Than just about any critics. Whether, it's the fact that a another were here. Colonel has career derailed fleet. Or the failure to protect troops abroad. It's clear that this administration has no respect for the military, and as one of the reasons why members of the military are looking for different. I think that represents a historic opportunity for my party. Keep reaching out again. It shouldn't be a cars an issue, the shooting way beyond politics, but right now we've got a very clear choice between somebody like Vice President Biden, who whose families military family whose son served. As somebody like Donald Trump, who's you know? Origins include going out of his way to avoid certain taking advantage of his millionaire connections to do it. As young man always rooted today where he just clearly doesn't care about protecting American troops, things like what we've learned that Russia to do. People judge, thank you very much for coming on great to have you on the broadcast tonight. Appreciate it

Bloomberg News Killed Investigation, Fired Reporter, Then Sought To Silence His Wife

"Mike Bloomberg's presidential bid led to tough scrutiny particularly about his company's frequent reliance on nondisclosure agreements for employees. One of the people under a nondisclosure agreement is a former employee who years ago worked on an investigative story about Chinese leaders. Bloomberg News killed that story. It also tried to silence his spouse. Npr's David Folkenflik reveals. What happened at debate? Elizabeth Warren Challenge Bloomberg. What about complaints about him Mr Mayor? Are you willing to release all of those women from those nondisclosure agreements? So we can hear their side of the story. Bloomberg tried to move past it. We have a very few nondisclosure agreements. Finish Bloomberg's blase response outrage the writer late. Hong fincher full disclosure award supporter finger points to the widespread use of such as by the company. Bloomberg founded the company uses them to handle complaints of sexual harassment and hostile work environment. According to reports ventures complaint is not that. I don't know exactly what happened to those women but I do know how incredibly terrifying it is to be threatened and bullied into signing a nondisclosure agreement in two thousand thirteen ventures husband. Michael Forsyth was a reporter for Bloomberg News in Beijing Bloomberg had already published his team's investigation into the wealth of the families of Communist Party leaders. The Chinese Ambassador had warned the company against publishing death threats followed venture and forsyth moved to Hong Kong yet. The team kept reporting. He continued to do an investigation and it was that story. This story on longed in China's honest man and his ties to senior Chinese Communist leaders including Jinping Z. Had just become president of China and I saw these emails from the editors praising it meaning the reporting saying that. Yeah it's it's. We're really excited about this. We can't wait to move it forward. Three former Bloomberg journalists verified this account after that however radio silence. The story never ran Serrao Mike. Her husband Mike and some of the other reporters. And Editors who had been working on this story. Just we're asking for answers about why. Why was this story killed the famously intense founding editor in chief of Bloomberg News finally weighed in? That's Matthew Winkler back then. To Editors told me the story needed work. That's not the reason we are cited for killing it. It is for sure going to invite the Communist Party to completely shut us down. Take us out of the country so I just don't see that a story that is just divide. This recording winkler on in October twenty thirteen conference call weekly praised the team but warned about covering the Chinese regime which he called it everywhere and who they are and we should have no illusions that the Chinese authorities had search Bloomberg's bureaus delayed visas for reporters and ordered state owned companies not to sign new leases for Bloomberg terminals the terminals offer subscribers specialized financial data and are the most important source of the company's profits and China was seen as a growing market and a strategic priority again. Matthew Winkler is the information they do have away that enables car to report but not Elsa Prophet Bloomberg News N Winkler. Who's retired as editor in chief declined to comment in two thousand thirteen? Mike Bloomberg was mayor of New York City and denied Bloomberg News Killed The China Story. Two months later back at the company he founded asked about the China controversy again. Mike Bloomberg said it was arrogant to impose American values on others if a country gives you a license to do something off with certain restrictions. You have two choices either. Accept the license and do it that way. Well you don't do business there. Npr also obtained audio of these remarks. Mike Bloomberg to his global newsroom Bloomberg said the newsroom should be proud of its China coverage then said all organizations have bad apples. Some staffers thought that was aimed at the China. Investigative team. Bloomberg News fired Mike Foresight. He was accused of leaking news of the killed project other outlets. He landed at the New York Times and would not comment for the story. He signed a nondisclosure agreement with Bloomberg LP lawyers for Bloomberg's company pressured someone else to sign one foresights wife later Hong fincher. The company's lawyers threatened to force her to pay a six figure sum if she didn't agree to keep silent about her husband's work. Here's venture. There was no reason why I should have to sign a nondisclosure agreement. Because I didn't possess any damaging material about the company venture recalls being summoned to the high rise offices of Bloomberg's Hong Kong lawyers. Her husband was there too. And then this lawyer from New York on that. I mean giant image of his face on the video screens said but what about all the evidence? That's in her head venture says. She walked out of the conference room and left the building. They assumed that because I was the wife of their employees. I was the wife I was just an appendage of their employees I was not a human being ventures former CNBC correspondent who was finishing up PhD. She bristled and hired top-flight lawyers and finally the company let it go now. Mike Bloomberg has returned to his company. Wants more but venture isn't letting her question go. What else in his newsroom she asks is hidden by those nondisclosure agreements.

Thousands turn out for first day of early voting in Nevada caucuses

"Democratic race to challenge president trump has moved to Nevada where Democrats are looking to prove. They could build a diverse coalition of support in a primary race. Many now expect to stretch on for months this morning. I'll speak with two candidates former mayor people to judge and Senator Amy Klobuchar who are tried to capitalize on momentum. Coming out of New Hampshire joining me now from Vegas. Is the candidate with the most democratic delegates. Pete booted. Thank you so much for joining me this morning. Mr I want to. With the Culinary Union in Nevada the Culinary Union is coming out against Bernie Sanders Healthcare Plan. Because it would do away with the deal that they negotiated with private insurers that led to some sanders supporters personally attacking the union leaders. Sanders had has disavowed the attacks. I WanNa show you what he said. He said. That harassment of all forms is unacceptable to me and we urge supporters of all campaigns not to engage in bullying or ugly personal attacks. You've been critical of Sanders of about all of this. Is that good enough for you. You know it's really disturbing to see the Culinary Union attacked when these are workers who have stood up and fought for among other things. Good healthcare plans. They're not interested in Washington taking away their choice and I think part of what's at stake in this election is the idea the idea. I'm putting forward of delivering healthcare to everybody. So there's no such thing as an uninsured American but doing it with Medicare for all who wanted while union members and others who have good plans are able to keep it You know no one should go after working people For wanting to defend and grow what they have earned and it's a key point of difference at the policy level Between me and Senator Sanders and also I think A very important that That supporters of any candidate do this with respect. We have a crisis of respect and decency obviously in the White House right. Now he'd have competition on our side but Y- you know I'll leave it to senator sanders to characterize What's going on with his own supporters. What I'll tell you that I'm focused on making sure that my own supporters and our campaign conduct this competition even when it's heated with a level of respect for where people are coming from because we're talking about workers standing up for their own care so you say that your health care plan is better for unions in particular because their members could keep their private insurance. But you also have said that if your health care plan is a success it could create a quote glide path to Medicare for all. Can you guarantee to these union? Workers that if you're elected president they will be able to keep their private healthcare plan. Absolutely look Senator Sanders plan by definition abolishes. Private plans like what the culinary workers and other workers across Nevada in America have mine does not. It's a simple clear in major difference. Now as you pointed out if my plan is the very best insurance plan in America and I think it just might be then eventually everybody will cross over to it but I want them to be able to decide and in the event that it's not if some plans out there are better. Why WOULD WE WANNA kick anybody off of it? This is a common sense position that most Americans support it still amounts to the most progressive major reform to healthcare that. We've had in fifty years but it is doable. I it makes sense. It's the right policy And it has the advantage of being something that Americans could actually unite around the next presence going to be taking office in dangerously divided Washington. Here we have an opportunity to have bowled big meaningful change and actually have that bold change. Be Unifying rather than divisive. Why wouldn't we take that opportunity? Okay so Mr Mayor. Let's talk about the race that you're in right now. You have the most delegates after the first two contests They were overwhelmingly white states. The race is about to get much more diverse and a new quinnipiac poll showed that since last month the former vice president Joe Biden his support among black voters has fallen by more than twenty points but mayor Bloomberg his support among black voters has tripled to twenty two percent. You on the other hand. You're at four percent Why aren't those voters coming to you? You know I'm not focused on poll numbers right now. We're having conversations with voters.

Rudy Giuliani's role in Ukraine's investigation of Joe Biden

"Since he came into office. Donald Trump has had personal attorneys who work work outside of his administration. The most notable person in that position was Michael Cohen who left the role and later went to prison for tax fraud related to his work with trump in April of two thousand eighteen. Rudy Giuliani became trump's new personal attorney and occupied a similar role in kind of gray area not not part of the trump administration but deeply involved in trump's work and it's in this capacity that Giuliani starts actively pursuing Lukashenko's is claims so how does Giuliani pursue this investigation into the Biden's so it starts with this may trip that he tries to plan to Ukraine to meet with with the precedent there okay so I've decided Sharon. I'm not going to go to the Ukraine. You'RE NOT GONNA go. I'm not going to go because I think I'm walking into a group of people that are enemies of the president that's canceled because he's just getting hammered from all sides about the impropriety of a president's foyer going to meet with a foreign leader out although this wouldn't be the first time that he's done that while serving trump's lawyer but the next month he doesn't give up he goes to Paris and meets with with an official in the Ukrainian Prosecutor General's office and then in July about a week before the president would talk to with the Ukrainian president in this now famous phone call. Rudy gets text from an official at the State Department. The person from the State Department who texted Giuliani is named named Kurt Volker the text said Dear Mr Mayor. Are you back stateside. Let's talk or get together who is Kurt Volker. Kurt Volker is actually also in a volunteer capacity to the US government. He's the US government's special representative for Ukraine. He's been serving in that job since 2017. You've worked with the State Department but it's not quite an official role. He checks in again two days later and then on July nineteenth nineteen. He says he really enjoyed breakfast this morning. As discussed connected you here with Andrew Euromac who is very close to President's Alinsky a suggest reschedule a call together on Monday maybe ten. AM or eleven am Washington time so volker offers to introduce Giuliani to a top aide a senior your adviser to the new Ukrainian President Zilenski and these people the Lansky and his aide. They're not connected to lose cheng-kuo right. The claims about Biden are not coming from them. Yeah and the timing of this text message is interesting because it's it's six days before trump is set to talk doctors. Alinsky but it also comes right after trump has directed a hold on nearly four hundred million dollars in aid that set to go to Ukraine in the fall. What's your interpretation of that timing. It's not clear who knows what at this point by. A good chunk of the funds are State Department Sutton and the other thing I would note is that Giuliani said that he doesn't become aware of the hold on eight until much later in the summer. Does the three way call happen and as far as we know the three way call happens. We don't know about the contents of this three way. Call between Giuliani the personal lawyer Volker the State Department armament volunteer and your Mac a top aide to Ukraine's new president but if any side were to bring up the claims about Biden it would be the US side remember there had been a Ukrainian election. Lukashenko was not in the new government and the new administration was not connected to his claims and then a few days after that call another call happens the call between the president of Ukraine and president trump this this is the call at the center of the current political turmoil and on this call trump is the one who brings up the claims about Biden and repeatedly tells the Ukrainian president to talk to Giuliani so it was really interesting to us that he's not only saying investigate investigate Biden but work with this person who's not officially in the US government and really has no official role other than to serve as his personal lawyer earlier in an investigation that at that point is dead but makes clear how eager he is for the Ukrainian government to do what Rudy is asking for and did did Zilenski people then talked to Giuliani yeah so your Mac the top aide. Alinsky and Giuliani meet about six days after the phone call in Madrid. This is a meeting that is cited in the whistleblower complaint and we know that Giuliani again takes these opportunities to bring up the Biden investigation to bring up investigation into possible election interference in two thousand sixteen and to press all these issues that are at the heart of this now now and how do we know that he brought those things up because he's told us this is Giuliani again after the call between the two presidents trying to get at the new Ukrainian administration to look into Biden and questions start to reemerge about whether in these meetings Giuliani was acting in an official capacity on behalf of the United States when he was not authorized to do so

So I told told our team that we're gonna wake up tomorrow morning. We're going to start talking about what the future looks like we're gonna be ready unbathed one. It's essential constantly. We're real take a regional co-chair Noblesville with our neighbors. But also always in competition. And so we're gonna have to be real quick and build those relationships and start talking with the future. Not only nobles the future Hamlin county since the end as well. What is that vision? When Andy cook a couple of sections going west, you'll he was of course, unopposed tonight, but he laid out this vision with grand park, setting Westfield apart from Carmel and fishers Carmen fishers of both had their own flavor of development, what sets Noblesville part from the rest of Hamilton county. How do you build that density? Sarah, we already have identity. We are the been the county seat. We have the town square. We have an authentic downtown with the white river flowing through it. Our neighbor pipe have really been trying to keep up with us by laying out there. We have unique identity of that historic downtown. We gotta continue to sell that identity and start talking about what our future looks like with our downtown with more house not since downtown with our riverfront property developing that going forward and just pushing toward on all of our infrastructure opportunities that we have a we have that identity here noble.

Victory was your appearance on the weekend. Probably put you over the top. Out there. How do you line between with your neighbors, and you know, fishers, and Carmel and degree no signs Napa where where you where you clap rate. But also you still compete for talent for people, you know, for projects etcetera. Than we do have to think regionally when it comes economic development efforts in partnership with the state, but we do also compete like you said for talent attraction with such a low unemployment rate, we're constantly talking about that here locally. And so we have to draw that line of time. Make sure that we had a clear identity of what we're looking for a noble so really about being proactive, and knowing what we need here nobles ongoing and getting it other communities have made their unique identities. We know what they hold. We've got to be better about selling. What makes us unique and going after jobs companies talent that affect that? That reflect what we are building here Noblesville. How will they Jensen administration look different from the last Welsh with John Ditz or you've worked with him in your role on the council on your both Republicans? Obviously what the what can we expect? It would be different over the next four years from the last twelve. They're really fixing actually years has done novel job leading city. He was the right the right time in two thousand three different circumstances. But I would tell people I'm very different John. I'm a different generation of John for and our team is going to be reflective of that going forward. We're going to have to put up put on the gas a little bit. We're going to have to lay out at four facing agenda positive for the featuring go enact that vision. The role of mayor has changed a lot even the past decade cities are becoming more economic engines that really make our state move forward. We've got to be proactive. We've gotta go like I said get the companies into workforce that fit Noblesville and a very proactive gender going forward and Jensen administration. Chris you talked about going forth next day hitting the ground running. Whenever have multiple cannon race like this. And you don't clear fifty percent. Now. One of the things is how do you get those other forty six point seven percent of the vote. How do you get those on the fifty three percent of Noblesville residents voted for another candy? On board. Thirty seven hundred doors and Noblesville an I was teasing. Two doors of those who have my opponents yard signs. I wanted to meet them 'cause I knew we had a right vision. I felt like we had the momentum. And I was going to be on on January. First of all sixty three thousand folks who live in the city of double Bill. So they need to know that might tables open. I put my cellphone on my Facebook page, which might come back to haunt me one day noble coffee and tea in downtown doubles every single day the my table big open and those who maybe didn't agree with me during the campaign to come be part of that share offer some solutions. Not just critique the past the be a part of our future. And they're welcome to do that. I'm going to work every day between now and January. I includes those folks in that as well. Republican nominee for mayor in Noblesville. Kris Jensen, thank you for taking the time tonight. Appreciate it. Thanks so much nine twenty two and Eric Berman of came Chubais real quick on some of the races that haven't been called yet. What have we got left?

That's one hundred thirty one votes again with about three quarters of the overall that's on the democratic side on the Republican side mirror, Steve Collier. Remember that's been sitting on a tie for the longest team time. He is also opened up lead fifty nine to forty one percent over as he in Bob Jones. So getting not ready to call those yet, but getting a little breathing room at the moment, I it's mirror Collier and Jomar Denard in the lead out in Southport southward of notary scheduled backer. Remember Southport's mayor is an independent. Russell McClure he defeated the incumbent mayor Jesse test for years ago McClure is not running again, Jesse test Ruth is he did have competition in his primary, and he is trailing at the moment. Sixty five to thirty five percent behind James Cooney. So at the moment, James Cooney is unopposed wealth. Again, we still have to wait for the rest of those votes to come in. But looking pretty good for James Cooney as the Republican nominee, and like many of the other folks, we've talked tonight the presumptive next mayor assuming that no opponent services. All right. These races are not over even though there are some that will presumably be going into the general election as the as the only one in the race. They still have until June two to get an opponent. And that includes the cities that have primarily Republican administrations or some of the cities that have primarily democrat administrations there could be a Republican opponent there if they qualify and get into the Ray. As before June. So you have reason to keep following these races.

You want to decriminalize it would be the opiates that are the most common which unfortunately right now include heroin cocaine cocaine would not be on the list of substances. I would engage in this. Because of the the addiction has very different features. All right there. You have three of the democratic candidates for twenty twenty radical extreme socialists in every way, the last cut. Andrew Yang wants the decriminalize heroin and Fenton, all three grains of salt or the equivalent size, three grains of salt of Fendt, nor will kill a two hundred fifty pound man genius. Absolutely genius. Before that was that was Mr Mayor Pete. If you care that was his name is Pete Buddha. Judge is name. You know, what's amazing about this guy is who is he what have you done, and you come up with his brilliant idea. We're going to do something totally different. Yeah. Socialism failed tried million times. Anyway, you want we are still following the tragedy out of France that's been on folding all day the fire breaking out at Notre Dame cathedral. Eight hundred seventy years old watching the spire collapsed earlier today was heartbreaking. They were you could see a lot of the scaffolding that was surrounding that's fire and as a six point eight million dollar renovation. They were in the midst of they believe it's connected to that. We haven't gotten any definitive answers. We'll continue to watch and follow that story as we continue here. Anyway, John McLaughlin, pollster strategist. And as we look at these twenty twenty candidates. You know, it's pretty interesting. First of all, we have Donald Trump has now accumulated more money to run for re re. Election than any first term sitting president ever, that's point number one. Matt Towery is with us likes to consider himself retired. But he's anything but retired. Because every time there's a big election. I got a full accurate analysis about what's about to happen. And I basically steal it. And I say this is what's going to happen. And just take all the credit because he's retired. It doesn't want to be known. Anyway. Hitter. Since since my Atlanta days, welcome both of you, by the way, John I give you a special shout out. Because listen, you're the pollster for beebees historic reelection four consecutive five terms total. He will pass the first prime minister of Israel in terms of longest serving prime minister in the course of this term. And what's amazing about it is it was the biggest labor party loss in their history. Number one and number two, the margins were so big in terms of the right coalition led by Likud of that. I think the prime minister thankfully was reelected. Even though they tried to indict them five weeks before an election and. It was really really for that they would do that. But then fortunately voters in Israel recognize what was going on. And it was a witch hunt and a conversation with President Trump's back you weeks ago. He said to me that it was just like over here with you turn in general. And I said, well, yeah, he did a point that attorney general ten year independent, but he did it and shortly one and it was a decisive win. And today, I think the final center parties agree to a coalition recommended the prime minister so as a decisive win for the right and the countries has moved right or center, Israel because of the success in that Donald Trump is is very very well liked in appreciated in Israel and the Israeli voters. Really appreciate the relationship. The prime minister Netanyahu has with President Trump. Whereas able to move the embassy he was able to recognize this. And most important he withdrew from there, really, bad rain Iran deal because in recent weeks, you've seen HAMAs shooting rockets at Israel, those are already rockets Rainiers page to that with the money. We gave the battery and deal so job important win. Great job, Obama and Biden and great job for you. You know, I watched the president. And it's so funny because but once Republicans now are thinking ahead is actually a hill story today. Matt how they're mapping out an early twenty twenty strategy to retake the house. I would say that is a a strong possibility for the Republicans because the president's going to be on the ticket. There was a Fox News piece. A red wave is rising goal. That's true. You see this new green deal you see a desire with all the problems we have at the border Democrats want to take down any border barriers whatsoever. Eliminate is the fact. They'd get rid of the combustion engine gas and oil planes and cows and everything else is free whether you work or on are unwilling to work. I just none of that is going to sell to the American people. And it's like it's like they're doing everything you could ever want them to do if you want them to lose like, I do it's a gift to Donald Trump. He couldn't have a better scenario you have one quote unquote, moderate democrat in the field. And that's Joe Biden and the left is tried to attack him every way they can they want him out of the race. That was pretty obvious over the last few weeks. And so I think John the last time we were on your show pretty much cleared. It believed that the nominee will be substantially center and this country, although millennial stay seal that that that's something. They can embrace other age groups don't go that way. And it you see it. In fact, you talk about the spread state legislatures this year that took. Votes on resolutions, urging congress to reject the green dream, so they're now taking it even to the state level. So would you think about the house of representatives and what these guys have to run on the turnout affected from rings because he's going to bring that base out. Just in huge numbers. I think the Republicans could take the house again, and I think the right shape right now, actually, Goldman Sachs on a ledge and said, the president will be reelected, but they've been a hedge. I wish they could be as bold what they say about finances. And I wish that you'd be correct. No, they listen. They did definitely hedge it, but also Wall Street money now is beginning to flow towards who. They think the winner will be and they in twenty sixty and it was it was Hillary. I think it even if it was Biden, it doesn't matter Biden still would have to run on the dumb things he says about he'd after run on the failed record of him and Obama, and he would be. Pulled so far to the left in the primary that you know, it's going to be very hardly any discernible difference between any of them. Yeah. I don't think I don't think you're gonna see Biden. I just think that the numbers the number that you have the left they start out where does their support go blow out in the first two or three primary or caucus which is highly unlikely given where they are. I see this going to the left, and it's gonna be a very distinct choice as Newt Gingrich would say they are the state choice in the election season in November twenty twenty what did you think John about the president's trial balloon of sending illegal immigrants that are flooding into the country because they see the walls being built and repaired in the money. Now is is in the convers in this is going to happen. And this surge ING across the border to sanctuary cities. And the president saying, you know, what? Because remember back in two thousand fourteen when we had a migrant surge and all of those kids, remember, President Obama. You know was targeting small and mid sized cities. And and now Trump said, well, we'll just send all these people to your backyard. Nancy Pelosi will send him to San Francisco, we'll send them to sanctuary states and cities, you know? And then you see somebody like shares freaking out say hang on a second mice. They can't take care of its own. How can take care of anymore? I'm like, oh, maybe it beginning to realize the cost on the criminal Justice system, the educational system the healthcare system, but I think for the president. It's a pretty smart ju jitsu move on his part. Okay. Well, if you want them so bad, and you don't want to help us fix the problem. Okay. We'll let them move in next door to you. And you know, this issue is helping the president. Because like Matt said, the Democrats are in this arrangement Irvy's going so far left to be the most anti Trump candidate feels because. Not giving them anything. They won't even protect our country and the borders, they won't keep criminals. We'll keep terrorists that they can't even take care of these people and the Democrats are looking bad in the president's job approval. It's going up, and what's different about what we help Donald Trump. Donald Trump win the primaries. He was taking positions that the majority of Americans agreed with the Democrats now taking positions like socialism government control, a healthcare like open borders majority of Americans disagree with and that's the key to winning. The contrast here is just terrible is the Democrats are. So so deranged that they won't even come to a compromise to secure the borders and share who you mentioned her sending a tweet out supporting the president on this. She'd been really at Trump until this point. So when you get those kind of conversions it's a sign that, you know, the country's really moving this way. Because the Democrats are moving off the edge Europe on the left. Well, said stay right there. Right. John McLaughlin is with us. Poster. Most recently for prime minister Netanyahu also worked on the Trump campaign. Matt Towery who I have known for years claims. He's retired. But he's totally full of it because every election. I get great information from him to. Hey, listen, if you are like me, and you want to be a responsible gun owner, you need to know about the USCCA they helped train and protect law-abiding responsible gun owners. And also, by the way, they have their gun giveaway program going on right now. But it ends on April the thirtieth of the seventeen chances to win..

This you really coming in at an important time Keith because we could really really take the city to the next level now with everything is really planned or potentially could be planned. Right. Absolutely. I mean, West Palm Beach is on such a positive projector me and being that's one of the things that campaign on maintaining that momentum. And making sure we complete projects that are already in the pipeline and continue to work to to improve. But there's no need to to throw the baby out with the bathwater. Whatever the place and just looking to get better. Well, you get a number of new buildings going up and downtowns also some along Flagler driver or across the street from Flagler drive. I mean is that going to continue as time goes on? We continue. A lot of that charge on the private sector interests. Okay. And we look at each project on a case by case basis that is one of the things that has been so fighting about our city is at the private sector interest and investment happy. When I first came on a two thousand eleven we had a couple of years. Will you didn't see any cranes in style? Right. That's true. What what what opportunities the five seconds sees in our city, and I'm optimistic. They will continue to see opportunities. Not only in our downtown even in our northern and southern quarters, as well, you know, all this growth there and all this opportunity comes to the price to it. Does you know, and when West Palm Beach like every other growing city with a lot of opportunity, he gets more crowded, you know, and I know that when we were talked to, you know, the the former mayor Jerry Moyo, feasability plans and traffic studies and all that stuff. That's gotta be a major concern before too though. Well, listen that traffic will continue to be a challenge for us, as you say athlete grow. It is it is part of our growing pains as a city, I gotta tell you that as the capital city, and one of the fastest growing counties in one of the fastest growing saves the growth and eligible, it's how we manage that growth. And how we deal with situations like traffic, and I think we need to change our mindset to where we could focus on moving people and not just cars. I'm gonna sit down with some meetings with the county next week with county county mayor MAC with Nora then county administrative of the union Baker. And I'll have Jeff green my city administrator. Dan, we're we're going to talk about a number of things to see what the there's some areas of commonality that we can salvage some quick success. As one of the things we want to talk about is like synchronisation on Jobe doing peak hours. Right the weekend tweak that and get traffic flowing more quickly. And we'll have to continue to use out of box thinking, we're expanding our cloudy service, north and south, and and probably even west those if we can move people from the neighborhoods in and out of downtown the more effectively without just relying on cars. So we have to continue to work out a big outside the box and be creative. But you know. I it's a good problem to have because it means that our city is growing and density is good in our city grows are catch basics fans, and it gives us more resources to address some of the more significant needs in our guest is Keith James, the new mayor of West Palm Beach, and we're thrilled you're here. Now last every time they go downtown. I see new things I it was you could rent bicycles and write him from point to point. And then read two cars showed up these little cars you could rent. I mean, how are you? How about golf carts or something like that? Or like little golf cart like shuttle services. Well, listen, my view on that is I if there's a way for someone to make money on it. And there's a demand somebody who's gonna do it. That's right. I don't discount that. And if somebody makes it very that they could make a block by moving people in golf cords back and forth. Whether it was enough demand for that. I say go for it again. It's all about moving people in our. Cars and what what I enjoy about our city. It goes back to where we're saying earlier is that the private sector is definitely up to the plate to address when you've got these entrepreneurs who are looking for ways to make money and eventually back that is the way a strategy that will make money they'll probably come out with mister mayor. Let's get to maybe the most important issue of all that we have to talk to you about this morning. Did you finish redecorating your office? Did you are you done? Now. The weekend. Did you worn in that's one and on Thursday nights? Give me a couple of minutes. Fox's on tax. But I got people on radio stations. Want wanna talk to me? Messing. Yep. There's a pleasure to be here. Truly pleasure to be. So what did Jerry leave inside are key to the city with you now, and you're going to give us a new ones is still good. I think we may. She may have changed a lot. Get you another one. All right. We want to though, we're going to be really pushy sharing from our charge. Honestly, congratulations. It's an exciting time. Thanks for reaching out to us. It's important because this is really where I was excited to have you in there because I really think you have a skill set of reaching out and communicating with people, and and that's going to be really big going forward here. So thanks for sticking around with us and communicating the message of the city, congratulations again, we're excited. Thank you very much. I'm happy to come back on and continue the conversation us. All right. So let's let's plan to get together every month and every six months or something and and keep talking and keep you up to speed on the blog wrestler making accountable. You could say listen, maybe told us three months ago, he's going to elect twenty. Okay. I'm willing to put my neck out there for you guys. All right.

"mr mayor" Discussed on WNYC 93.9 FM

"Just use the hashtag pass the mayor Mr Mayor good morning and welcome back to WNYC. Good morning. Brian many of our listeners were just hearing detailed reporting on the horrible terrorist attack in New Zealand on BBC pro- program. And so I with this apparent white nationalist terrorist attack at two mosques three terrorists said to have been involved at the last report that I saw it's half a world away. But is there any response by the city preventive or otherwise, Brian it is a very painful tragedy. I guarantee you members of the Muslim community here in New York City feeling and Muslim Americans all over the country. Now, we we have to respond right here right now to this doesn't matter. Half world away. And it I like it to another horrible tragedy. The the massacre that Kurd within the tree of life synagogue in Pittsburgh approach it the exact same way. We are NYPD is reinforcing Muslim community centers and mosques. So you'll see a lot of NYPD presence. Of course, folks will be going to pray today. We want them to be supported I'm reaching out later state and Muslim community leaders to let them know that we will have their back. We will support them and people aren't going through a lot of pain a lot of fear right now. And we have to be there with them. And this is also not just about protecting people and protecting their institutions. It is about sending a message that he will not be tolerated in New York City, and that we truly embrace our Muslim community, and then we will stand up against Islamaphobia in all its forms. And and I hope all over the western democratic world that leaders will do the exact same cause anything less. Within a show of support for communities in this point, a very physical show of support. My sends a horrible message. And we have to stand up to these is llama phobic terrorists by showing that our societies will not accept them. Indeed. And we will be having a local imam on the program later this hour to be part of what you just described. There's no particular report of any copycat threat or any other kind of threat with respect to the New York area that you know, that's moment. I have not been informed of any credible and specific threat, but we take these situations very seriously. Because even when there isn't a threat that we can see through intelligence gathering tragically. Sometimes there are copycat instances. There are people motivated by hate to see inactive hate and get inspired themselves. Even if there's no pre warning or no no way, we can know who they are. That's why we're having the very strong. Police presence is crucial to inhibit anyone even thinking about it. Also, this is reminder of the famous phrase, if you see something say something it is not just about a package left in the subway. It's also about anyone who's talking about hate and talking about acting on their hate, many, an attack has been stopped because someone overheard a conversation or someone heard a friend or loved one saying something that was very dangerous and reached out if anyone here's anything like that. Of course, they should call nine one one right away. And report it those are often the kinds of things that stop an act of hate. So everyone really in one way or another can be part of the solution. I say all New Yorkers today. You know that you're Muslim follow New Yorkers are going to a lot of pain. Just like our Jewish fellow New Yorkers went through so much pain after the tree of life massacre, and you know, reach out to them show show. Understanding because we're all in this together, and we'll be talking to Manhattan imam. Khalid Latif later this hour moving on to some other issues for now you nounce do plan yesterday to build out pint of lower Manhattan into the East River and build movable barriers to protect downtown. From storm surges in the future like happened with sandy and twenty twelve and climate change deniers might be skeptical of the need for federal funding for this. But apparently some environmentalists skeptical to the group river keeper says it was originally designed in the Bloomberg years as a giveaway to developers and river keeper says they will fight this like they fought the west way highway plan in the nineteen eighties because of a number of endangered and other fish species whose habitats this would harm in that particular waterway. Are you an -ticipant widespread environmental pushback, and what do you say to river keeper? No, I am not there's concern. We're going to meet with. People and listen to them and work with them. I think the world river keep I think they've done great work over the years. But on this one I would caution the science is very damning we believe in the report we put out that was done by a panel of climate. Scientists looked at this believe by the end of the century that lower Manhattan portions of Lorraine hat, and we'll be underwater regularly. If we don't take action and we've already Brian. This is not a new idea. Look what's happening in Miami already. There are parts, you know, their major cities around the world that are suffering just because of the fact that the sea levels are rising before you even talk about where we will be decades from now or what happens to the event of a major storm with a storm surge. I mean, we have to protect against this lower Manhattan combines a series of features that should make it a national security priority. Let alone a local priority. Hundreds of thousands of people live and work there. It's more and more residential neighborhood. Seventy five percent of our subway. Lines go through there and are vulnerable. It is one of the centerpieces our economy one in ten of our jobs, New York City are in lower Manhattan. It's the capital of the national financial industry, which affects the entire economy, and it's not protected. So the original plan put out by the Bloomberg administration. When when we looked at it, we said the motivation to protect lower Manhattan was the right motivation. But the vision was the wrong vision. It turned out that that seaport city vision. It was much too focused on private development. It was much bigger than it had to be. We actually found that for about fifty percent of the area of of that lower Manhattan coastline. We could achieve the same resiliency without development and without building out the shoreline, but that particular area around the south street seaport and the financial district is the lowest part of lower Manhattan. It's the most vulnerable by far we tried a variety of models to see if there was some other way to protect it. We don't believe there is we think we have to build out to the end of the pure line, which is. About five hundred feet at maximum. We might be able to do it with less and if there's federal funding which there should be. I mean, Brian there should be a national resiliency strategy for the coastlines of America. There is not there is only funding after Zastava not to stop a disaster. If there is finally as part of I hope a green new deal a national resiliency plan. It would be sufficient to cover something like protecting one of the most sensitive locations in the entire nation. So that's our preference here to achieve it with federal funding. We'll get started with city money in the planning but our goal is to achieve this with federal funding. I saw that you spoke toward the federal government. You know, Andrew remarks toward the federal government yesterday on the importance of their recognizing the urgency of this given the urgency. Why did it take until six and a half years after sandy for this proposal to come out because we have to get it? Right. The original proposal wouldn't have worked the way. That we think makes the most sense original proposal, if if we had accepted, I mean, it it gets back to the critique you started with if we accepted that seaport city initiative would have taken a lot longer to protect about half of the shoreline because we found quicker and easier ways to do it. It would not have accounted for a number of other concerns that were not ever considered in that proposal. So you've been in office five years. Yeah. It took a lot of research and a lot of design work and a lot of projecting with experts with new technology and new capacity to determine what made sense way decided, and I'm happy we did that we there was a much better way to protect a lot of the coastline. And that we could do it in a way that did not emphasize private development as much. In the meantime, as I announced yesterday, we've got a half billion in other resiliency projects that are underway right now for lower Manhattan for the other parts of Manhattan the battery battery Park City, the two bridges area. Those are all moving forward right now. Farther up the side eastside coastal resiliency plan is moving forward. So everything's been a piece, obviously, we've been moving to the initiatives in the rockaways in red hook and Staten Island. Everything's been moving. But this one was in many ways the most complex it took the most hard work to sort through. But we're convince now this is the plan. We're gonna move on it. Immediately. But I'm really glad we did not accept the plan that was bequeathed to it to us excuse me. Because I think it would have let us in the wrong direction taking a lot longer and required private development that we do not think is the optimal way to approach. One more thing on this. There's also pushback from some outer borough neighborhoods that asked why such an expensive prioritizing of lower Manhattan when sandy turned Howard beach into Venice says one tweet puts it the rockaways project has sand. But no jetties keep it on the beach. I think that was also written in respect with respect to Seagate and carrots and beets and some other places. So I think it was Katie Honan from the Wall Street Journal who tweeted, so it's like setting money on fire every ten years, meaning more San Joaquin were in what do you say to those concerns that Wall Street in the business district is getting too much of the emphasis on by a really easy stereotype for some people to present that absolutely discordant. With the facts. And I think anyone who traffics and that is not serious about this issue for the last five years, the focus has been overwhelmingly on outer boroughs sensitive locations as part of a twenty billion dollars billion see plan, that's money. That's already moving. This is what I'm talking about lower Manhattan is a brand new ten billion dollars that we're going to have to get and again, I hope from the federal government. But the twenty billion that's already moving is going to a whole host resiliency projects that have either been completed like the five point five mile barrier that is the Rockaway boardwalk or the work that's been done to replenish beaches and marshes in other areas around the Rockaway, Staten Island other parts of the city, but there's a host of new Seagate. There's been an immense amount of work done on Seagate already. We just announced a major new effort for the east shore of Staten Island. There's a huge amount of resiliency work that been done or has been started. Or is about to be started with a twenty million dollar budget. All of that focused on the areas and outer boroughs that really got hurt hard and sandy, but let's be clear lower Manhattan got hit very hard by sandy too. I was there. There were people electrobi- without food without water. That were businesses destroyed their homes made unlivable, and it's a whole lot of people. Let's be clear about the number of people affected when you talk about that both residences and the jobs just in the immediate area. We're talking about with this plan. It's hundreds of thousands of people. And again, the nexus of our entire subway system and one of the cores of our economy. So I'm from the outer boroughs, we have very much focused on protecting outer borough communities, but we've also got to be clear, this is one of the most vulnerable pieces equation. It also happens to be one of the lowest places at the lowest part of lower Manhattan. That's very very vulnerable right now, and it has to be protected for the good of New York City going forward. Related call. Let's take Billy on the Bowery around WNYC with the mayor. Hello, billy. Hi, I am calling actually about the resiliency plan specifically the east. I don't know if you've done your due diligence. What they're planning, but it's an enormously risky expensive. Contest. So just in Parker since the only part we have and taking enormous step plan now after four years of getting an incompetent design it is not possible to build. They're planning on killing the entire Parfitt eight feet of soil relying on flurry wall below the park prevents flooding from the underground water like like, the ones that failed and initially in the World Trade Center and killing the park and filling with eighteen of soil over a three year period. There's such a huge risk of failure of completion due to low betting things you've already lost our part for ten years. I'm a little bitter couldn't finish fixing it up. It's an incompetent clan. That's really needs to be looked at. And there is no master patch of New York each there's another part just out of it. That's just using..

"Sacramento, mayor Darrell Steinberg joins us now. Live on KFI became good morning. Mr Mayor, good morning. How are you? Well, good. I appreciate your time. I know it's been a busy couple of days. I know you've said you're disappointed by the protest that ended in arrests on Monday. I know you were also a verbal target at last night's city council meeting along with chief hon-, there were protests and chanting and a recess was called as we mentioned what good if anything came from that meeting. Well, I think our job last night. It's always my job to bear some of the pain of the community. Some of it is obviously human being. Hard to take you know hour after hour after hour, but that's part of my job. And you know, I'm very serious about asking the question I've been asking all year. What what do we do to prevent this from happening again? And what do we do to change? It must be changed. And you know, I called yesterday is my colleagues did for independent investigation of what occurred Monday night and those protests because I was. Troubled by it. When you spend a lot of time, I'm not prejudging, the facts and the men and women in uniform, tremendous stress, and very tough jobs, but we'd been working for a year with the community with law enforcement tried to avoid that turn it up to him. And it was not a good outcome. We need you allowing peaceful protests. So you have these two very lengthy investigations that have gone on. And the announcements were made how as a leader of a city. Do you separate the facts of one particular case and balance it against the feelings of this this national narrative that a lot of African Americans feel that there is never Justice for them in these cases. So how how do you balance those two one case versus you know, an ongoing conversation about race. Well, first of all this is always been about Stefan Clark. But it's about a lot more than stuff on Clark. And I not the district attorney. I have I don't have that a sword. But what I do have is moral authority. And I do have some legal authority is mayor Sacramento. I intend to use it. I is called for two hundred million dollars. Industrial and in our disadvantaged neighborhoods of Sacramento after the passage of measure, you the campaign. I'm so that we can begin uplifting. Each communities I called for changes at the state level in use of force policy and calling for independent investigation. And I'm going to do everything I can to bring law enforcement officers together with the asking American community to engage in real dialogue and real conversation. 'cause that's what's missing. Sometimes I feel like I am the translator on so two very different use of life. And what I wanna do is bring together the the men and women who patrol out on the streets, the rank and file and on the vendors leaders and young people from the community. So that they can hear each other. But Mr Mayor de do you agree with the findings of the district attorney and the attorney general and and agree that the officers should not face criminal charges under certain under the standard of law. That. The decision. And the DA I think we're consistent with the law. Right. But but that again is not my role. And I I think we have to give real voice to the people who are hurting the trauma, the that is generations old in continues to this day. And if we don't act upon it in positive ways, then we are not doing our jobs. I'm doing everything I can mayor the city is former legislative leaders someone who knows how to get things done actually make a difference in these communities. That's my role. I'm going to stay focused on it, and Mary and hearing those communities and trying to do what you can there. Talk to me about the officers. I mean on social media, the two officers involved their home addresses have been posted pictures. For status. Totally not right. It's totally not right. Their lives have been up into two. And you know, human beings their lives have been up ended. And you know, this is a horrible tragedy. A horrible situation for everybody. And you know, we have got to heal, and he's got to I'm going to do everything I can to try to bring people with very different points of view together to actually engaging in dialogue because as I said in my state at the city speech, the history of racism in this country, and even in this community was racially restrictive covenants that African Americans get up leaving some into that's very real and the impacts continue to this day at the same Tim, and there are serious questions about. Bias and in what goes on African American parents from only talk about different experiences that their kids have with the police at the same time. The police have a very tough job to do. And they put their lives on the line. So one truth does not negate the other. And I'm going to do all I can to change and at the same time try to heal the best I can do. Well, mayor. Thank you very much for your time. We appreciate it. We do. You know, definitely wish you luck with trying to heal that and you and you're not alone. You do have the help from the chief as well and other city leaders to try to help heal this. But we thank you for your thoughts and in Sacramento mayor Darrell Steinberg, let's get a quick check of our traffic. Trouble spot right now. Here's Brian noble. Debbie eastbound highway fifty just past Stockton boulevard. Got that jack-knifed big rig blocking the three light right lanes. Traffic is backed up all the way through downtown. Welcome.

"Is. With MAC and Gaydos. Arizona's news station. News ninety three s. I think it's pretty interesting talking to former Arizona governor Jan brewer we ask him about the situation in Dallas, and they've got a border wall. And now, there's razor wire all over it. And governor brewer is is very much into securing the border. She signed SP ten seventy Hsien like this wire thought that was really telling can you explain the wire real quick MAC. Yeah. It's concertina wire, which is razor wire is draped all along the actual wall. So it's from top to bottom not just on the top. If someone's trying to scale it and basically razor wire is so thin, and so sharp that the more you move the more cuts you up so you can literally bleed to death or to get you out may have it you have to several limb or something like that. And the mayor of this town says I don't want it. I don't want it. It's bad for business. And it's also stopping families from seeing each other. We're talking to him right now. His name is. Zero Grena, Mr Mayor. How're you doing today? I'm doing fine. Thank you. Hey, did we get the border fence in the description, right? Description is. We actually call it a wall like they're asking for imitating Pete tall, and some places probably is close to twenty feet tall. Okay. And it's got razor wire all over. And it wasn't like that. Just what a couple of months ago. Yes. I I row in the top was placed in November before I took office. I took office in January the second and then this past weekend is when they put it all the way down to the ground. So just this past weekend that razor wire starts at the top of the wall and goes all the way down to the ground. They have three strands three rows of it. And and it gives you that affect like like more like they're trying to keep us from jumping across you know, because it's on our side. And it's and it's a really close to yards of people because they're not it's not only in the downtown area by the deacon scenic port of entry in the morning port of entry but west and east of there. There's a couple of residential areas. And it's only the width of a street the divides, the people separate the people from that wire we're talking to Arturo Guerrino. He is the new gals mayor, and we're discussing the border wall. That's just draped with razor wire. Why have you gotten a reason by administration or anybody the border patrol? Why did they put it up? Well, when I when I we had I had a staff meeting the Monday, right after we found the wire the wire was placed over the weekend and asked the staff to me with me on had the police chief fire chief, which they're very very concerned because their first responders, and they've they have to respond to anything at the wire. They're also they're they're safety is also put in in in a position there that they can also get hurt because of the razor wire. And but when we had this meeting, I I asked the police chief to communicate with border patrol the chief of border patrol and the chief of customs. They could meet with us. And they said, no, I actually but the following day the border patrol called me. And they said they wanted to meet with me. So what I did. I take the deputy city manager with me. I took the police chief and the assistant chief with me. And when I asked him about the wire, they said that they were told to reinforce or to fortify the word fortified is what they use to to fortify the border. And so I said with razor wire and he said, yes. And I said would made the decision. I said does this from the Pentagon Washington? No, he says, we did it here we decided to put razor wire. And I said, oh, you decided to put razor-wire, and that's why. And he says well because we have murders. We have rapists child molester jumping over. And I said, okay, I said so I looked at the police chief and the police chief just stay quiet, and there we asked other questions about how what about our children are. Residents here. What are the concerns and he says, well, we're going to put up some signs saying that is dangerous. Okay. So so if I heard you correct Mr Mayor, the border patrol decided to do this not the federal government, not the not the national guard. It was the border patrol who decided to fortify. Yes. That's what they told me that that's how they wanted to fortify the border. Right. So even though even though the military was here, they they're the ones that have been doing it. But it was a request from them. According to what they said, what are their rapists, and murderers that are jumping over the fence in Gallus because they told you not that I know of well, first of all this is business my concern. Okay. The president's been asking for a while. And and and we have a wall. So by the looks of it against the wall doesn't work because now they're putting concertina-wire because if that's the case, then the whale a twenty foot wall eighty foot wall. It doesn't matter. Why is into wall slowing them down and allowing border patrol to get there in case somebody scales a woman jumps sober. Okay. So so we know that you don't want this razor wire have you asked the federal government or the troops national guard troops to take it down, and what has been their response. No. We haven't asked the troops because we actually don't have any authority over that. But we did ask border patrol, and they at this moment. I don't think that's the they're concerned right now, they they take it or not will you sue at federal government to take it down. We sent letters. We sent letters to some congressmen and senators even send a letter to the governor requesting the wire to be taken down. We haven't gotten a response yet from anybody except for congressman. Okay. He sent a letter back then. Actually, a copy of the letter she sent to homeland security to Kirti requesting wire be removed. To Senator McCain and she hasn't responded either. Okay. Arturo Guerrino nNcholas mayor, Mr Mayor. Thank you for joining us, and we'll be in touch because want to hear what happens with this razor wire..

"I'm Joshua Johnson in Saint Petersburg, Florida. What discussing climate change and its impact on coastal Florida and on the entire country with the mirror of Saint Petersburg. Rick Christman, associate professor, Rebecca Zargar, and professor John Chambers. Both at the university of south Florida. We'd love to hear from you to share your questions and share what you know about climate change. And how your community is adapting for it. Or not comment on our Facebook page. Tweet us at one A or Email one A at W A M, U dot ORG. Glad to get stories from you across the country, and the little things that you're noticing just the changes in the way that the yearly natural cycles are beginning to get a little more off and a little more off. Jessica emailed, New Jersey is on the very edge of the maple syrup map a few years ago. New Jersey was tapping in March this year farms tapped in February winters have become warmer each. Year and the threat of losing North American made maple syrup is very real. We must all do more to protect our natural environment. From depletion mother earth is all we have another listener tweeted, I live in Massachusetts. But vacation in Pinellas county here in Florida. There are so many more solar panels in Massachusetts. What gives Mr Mayor Gibbs? Yeah. That's a great question. I mean first off when you start off by having a national administration led by our president who pull out of the Paris climate accord, then you have a governor in the state of Florida who refused to even use the words climate change and wouldn't allow his employees these words climate change. Now, you've got a state Senator who's filing legislation to require or allow teaching of alternative scientist other than climate change. It makes it very hard to implement policy to start addressing mitigation of climate change. You're referring to former Florida's. Most recent governor Rick Scott, who's now Senator. Yes. And so in the state of Florida, we don't have policies in place that really encourage our residents to get more engaged in assists them, whether it's solar panels or creating more energy efficiency in their homes having statewide.

I don't know if I should be saying professor, Mr Mayor Senator I mean, the man you've done. I didn't know what I wanted to be when I grew up. So I had to try a lot of things decided. Really a whole lot of a lot of fun and satisfaction that I am very very excited about coming back to Detroit to be with the Detroit economic club by spoke to the club. Thousand eight just as the recession began for Barack Obama was elected. So I've been deflecting a lot of sort of ten eleven year period since then. As I prepare for what to share with the club. Will you've certainly worked yourself Mark into being one of the most accomplished servant leaders in the nation. And you and I started working when we were both fifteen, but you started working a lot smarter than I did. Informed, your own janitorial company at fifteen. Yes. You know? It was it was interesting interesting story about that. I had a summer job working at a building works for a law firm. I was sort of an errand boy runner for the law firm, and the custodian in the building I struck up he was. Older man a relationship with it. Because I noticed that he made the floors in the building shy like glass. And I asked him how he did it. He said he had a secret formula. And said I started thinking. Bottle. You thank you can lend me some of that secret formula. Oh, no. I can't do that. That's my seat. Cajole could into lending some of this so-called secret formula, he hadn't a bottle that he sprayed on the floor before boss, and I got a couple of my friends, and we we basically spent most of the summit put some flyers together. And we spend most of the summer washing windows waxing floors and cutting the grass of people in the neighborhood where he grew up, and you know, we had a fly we had a neighbor call detector, each aditorial service says this interesting little I have venture. I thought for sure Mark you were gonna tell me that secret formula was elbow grease. I still don't know what it is the price of the building custodian the building engineer was colorful character. And you know, he he refused to tell me the joke with me about what he had in the bottle. But he said, you know, one day. Get rich off that. I was I was fascinated by. But it is also, you know, is sort of an example of this a little bit of mentorship. Because. Too busy show you have to learn how to use the buffer correctly. And you have to learn how to do this correctly. And you have to learn how to do that correctly and great great opportunity. Whatever I see young people who either shoveling snow or pushing a washing cars, or whatever it is. Yeah, I like to support them because comport cards are kinda spirits that initiative that tried that entrepreneurial instinct hustle that. We sometimes call it in our young people. Sure. Absolutely.

Whether it is the economy and jobs, whether it is fashionable security immigration equity in education, environmental issues, business, growth and development shit into really a broader discussion about what kind of should we want to be in the twenty first century and patriotism versus nationalism steel too much. But I'm going to say something I've been talking about because we have to understand not only the distinction, but also the. Imperative for the twenty first century, we have globalization, we have technological change demographic shifts. We have the rise of new economic powers like China India in the in the nation. We have a in the landscape, economically, politically, we have to the rise of repressive regimes across the land. Whether it is in Korea or Russia, for example, that we have to be very aware of. So I wanna talk about it the frame what kind of patients wanna have because all of the issues that we confront today related to a vision of America. I think now almost twenty years into the new century. It's hard to believe or twenty minutes at the new century twenty nine. That wants to this century has already gone by. We are now charting a course country those in positions of community leadership business leadership and political internships that I wanna talk about that. And I'll talk about it in the context of where we are countries sense their session of ten Jessica. Block. The country almost two.

"Komo news one thousand and FM ninety seven seven. If you can afford an army of lobbyists an army of lawyers an army of experts, then Washington works, great for you. It's just not working for the people. And that's why we're here today. Elizabeth Warren and ask this week. Look at those crowds in Iowa yesterday. Twenty twenty race has begun. Let's bring a round table back right now and Stephanie Brown James let me begin with you one of the remarkable things about that trip to Iowa yesterday. I guess it's been happening with all the candidates to go out there and explore massive massive crowds on the democratic side, and people are really hungry to see candidates who are authentic, and I think that there's three things that the Democrats are going to realize as they get out into the field of whoever's running one is you have to show leadership to is that you have to be able to beat Trump and three which I think is very important. You have to be able to really speak to the issues of what most Americans are going are going through right now. And so I'm really looking forward to this field starting to thin out because before it fence. Yeah. But I think it's going to be sooner than than we think because if donors and if diverse voters don't get behind someone early. I think it's going to thin out a lot quicker to agree with that. I think that you have the governor former governor of Massachusetts already about I think it's going to ball Patrick. Yeah. I think you're going to have an hour. Our glass, basically, I think there's a unique time the last time you've had three successive presidents had hit eight years was Jefferson Madison member we haven't had that. And that was followed by a one termer. I think Democrats are gonna be like nine hundred ninety two very pragmatic. Can you win campaigns are very revealing all your warts, all your strengths? And I'm four candidate. That is that I would agree one hundred percent authentic. And if you can't do that fake, it really well Stephanie says he wants to they want to see candidate who can take on Trump, John? I was interested to see that Elizabeth Warren yesterday, I think Trump didn't come up into a couple of hours into her appearance. Well, I think that actually Rahm brought up Mr Mayor brought up a great point about Amir, Massachusetts. Duval, Patrick, I think what's more telling than who's getting in is who's not at a time when we need the most talent, we're in Washington where we need it. The most people are going out there saying to heck with this young fresh voice on the democratic side is a woman who wants to radically fossil fuels entirely in this country. And the next ten years. She officially has more Twitter followers than Nancy Cortez, huge following huge upcoming voice and the fracture between the Democratic Party is do you want? This progressive left, socialist agenda, or do you want to have a more mainstream democrat that can talk to voters Iowa and reach over and win over the votes that were lost Felton afraid of time. It was a great discussion. Thank you all that is all for us today. Thanks for sharing part of your Sunday with us, check out world news tonight. And I'll see you tomorrow..
