"mr watts" Discussed on The President's Inbox

"Been marginalized and discriminated against. So what is it from your vantage point. That progresses are missing as they talk on the one hand about china lift up. Women minorities the rest in their hostility. Trade policy to really good question. And i think part of what they're missing is just the hangover that because the unions for all their good and bad and limitations in the us have ended up focusing so much on trade as the scapegoat because that was something partly believed in partly that was something that could effectively block and say to their members. We are blocking after. We are correcting after. We are not leading trade go. We're delivering free. The women view because we can't deliver on the things that we really should be delivering lawn which we were like fair taxes like better rights for organizing and so i think that's part of it but i think a bigger part of it is just that there is a focus on people not so much as individuals but as groups right so if you're more intellectually minded you have these concepts of the working class and the yet sound marks in the proletarian which people not say anymore but that link or have identity politics of groups and once you do that then you start focusing on the rise and followed locations right. And our congressional system our electoral map reinforces that for obvious reasons but in the end speaking. Not just as an 'cause with someone who i tried to think myself is progressive. Frankly i care a lot more about individuals than i do about places or their identity and so when we need to be progressive and still allow change in the economy is a much more individually targeted portable welfare state than we currently have and we've seen successes in places like denmark like germany but elsewhere where the emphasis is not so much on resurrecting places keeping jobs in place of making people more mobile very aggressively matching them with jobs. The uk has just not shown that they ended up with much lower unemployment than they expected to as a result of the krona virus in part because they put a lot of money into these so-called active labor market policies. Which are these you know. Essentially do-gooder attempts to really help individuals get jobs and help the move jobs or commute to jobs. It's just a lot of issues politically about emphasizing individuals rather than locations or community. I want to pursue your views on possible policy solutions but before we get any deeper into that. I like to ask the flip side of the question. Which is. And if. I can bar- your phrase about the policy of nostalgia where the cost of sticking with this policy of nostalgia. I think there's some very severe costs. The first thing i'll just say is there obviously economic causse direct inefficiency costs of areas to pay more for stuff we have smaller markets to go into because all are still industries are chips using industry surfing uncompetitive. There's less growth. But that's the boring stuff that basically a lot of progressives as well as people on the right saying well that's not important. That's just economists. Folks nicholson dimes. And that's important. So i agree. There are things more important that let's just remind everybody. There is a direct economic costs. Doing tariffs cost jobs. Yeah full stop. You get less 'immigration you get less employment you get less opportunity dot but anyway you can say it's worth the sacrifice something economic for this progressive baller. This national go. But that's where i think it really fails. When we look across societies over a closed society generally has less innovation. Entrenches the advantages of the incumbents. Whoever are the white males of that given society tends to feed rather than buy off. Frankly right wing. Near fascist nationalist policy it tends to entrench the privilege of corporations who are deemed national champions and they get soft economically but they get abusive politically young calling mine. And a stands berry has documented. How where you have a dominant. Local employer minimum wages. Even if they're legal don't really get paid. The burdens homeworkers prove that they are regulations. Social safety is being pilot. I mean this is all very much harder when you're not open to competitions new ideas when people don't have encouragement or choice to move or change that other people take advantage and so this move of the us for the last twenty plus years to be evermore closed while scapegoating the world is i think a major contributing factor to things that some people nearby administration care deeply about changing like concentration of corporate power the ability of employers to exploit workers the treatment of migrants the ability of small businesses and innovations come on and then of course it gets into all the foreign policy issues thing though you and others very much concerned about that if american isolationism on the foreign policy front is reinforced by economic isolationism or economic withdrawal. As i'm put as other us last cost the human safety and human rights. But i just want to emphasize the this isn't a neutral choice. This isn't about. Oh if we keep out trade. We're looking after our people arts for the middle class. If we keep out trade and get caught up in this nostalgia we are locking in. Who are the middle class. And who can get into the middle class to a large degree and we are setting ourselves just as other countries we used to lecture. People might america or south asia. If you have a closed economy you create corruption you create incentives for bad production. You create incentives to stop innovate our disincentives to innovate really. And we're already seeing that in the us. There are a lot of good scholars. And policymakers talked about these things. And i think people underestimate how much are close. Mindedness enclosed. this this has contributed to these bad outcomes from the us. So adam would we go from here. I mean we can talk. All we want about counterfactual if we pursued this policy fifty years ago or not entered into that trade deal twenty five years ago. We can have those arguments but there by definition both unanswerable in irrelevant. What do you do about a state or region. That's already been heavily hit. I just recently drove from southeastern michigan back to washington. Dc to a good portion of ohio in pennsylvania and you see a number of factories reclosed shuttering me dry by the lordstown gm plant in northeastern ohio. Big plant No activity what do we do about that. We focus on trying to regenerate those communities. I think focus on trying to help the individuals those communities. I mean that's why fundamental guiding star here so people not places people not places as nice way to put it. What does that mean. It means much more emphasis on portable benefits for people that it's not about only loss jobs through trade we're going to retrain you in that job or trying to protect that job. It's about you have health insurance that you can take with you. Woodley start some minimum level. You have social care and availability of daycare and childcare and food for children so that you don't feel oh i can't leave the town of my birth because my sisters and i don't have a safety net if i have to move. We do things that we know work. In other countries that spend anywhere from two ten times as much as we do on the so called active labor market policies which is an umbrella of policies. Really help people match with jobs. We do things that are about investing in transportation infrastructure. Which by mr watts to do on. Many people bipartisan in congress. Want to do but with an eye to making it possible for people to get to and from where the jobs are at a reasonable weight both rate time and rate of expense and to pick up two issues. Where i think the libertarian. Right and the mainstream left in the. Us have got agreement. That i think are really right to be agree is some deregulation of zoning laws to make it easier. So in the urban places like san francisco new york where there's the most job growth in the most activity. People who don't have huge salaries can afford to live there and some deregulation of these crazy. Non compete agreements and state.

Playing Jazz With Charlie Watts, on Nights off From the Rolling Stones

"The rolling stones have often been described as the greatest rock and roll band in the history of rock and roll. We're talking over years about mick jagger. Brian jones keith. Richards bill wyman mick taylor and ronnie wood and the drummer charlie watts who was described in a recent new york times headline as the serene drummer who kept the stones rolling. That times article went on to say that while mr richards guitar. Riff defined the band's most famous single satisfaction. Mr watts drum pattern was just as essential. And that he charlie watts was quote relentless on painted black and supple on ruby tuesday and the master of funky groove on honky. Tonk woman not surprising since jazz was his. I love indeed stones guitarist. Keith richards road. The charlie watts has always been the bed that i lie on musically music including songs lyrics and performance. They are a powerful form of free speech protected by the first amendment and the rolling stones have helped us celebrate that freedom. Their drummer charlie. Watts gave us the satisfaction of music. That sustained us. He died in late august at the age of eighty

I was already in the middle of putting this episode together to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of this landmark album from the rolling stones. And then just today as i record this. We all heard the news that their legendary drummer. Charlie watts and passed away. I don't think you can overestimate how important charlie. Watts was to the world of drummers into rock and roll in general. this episode wasn't meant to be a memorial or tribute to charlie. But i couldn't let the episode pass by without mentioning how significant his contributions were to the whole history of music. So keep the illustrious mr watts in your thoughts and wets let this episode. Play out as we've discussed on this show before nineteen seventy one. Fifty years ago was an especially brilliant year for music and there's a ton of classic albums celebrating their fiftieth anniversary this year so before twenty twenty one comes to a close and one to take one last. Look back fifty years ago to another landmark album from nineteen seventy-one the rolling stones sticky fingers on this episode. We'll celebrate that album by digging into one of the stones greatest moments the song called. Can't you hear me. Knockin by nineteen seventy-one. The beatles had split leaving the rolling stones with the title of the biggest band in the world. Sticky fingers is either their ninth or their eleventh album depending on whether you're county uk or us releases but either way. It was well into their career but there was still some fresh blood and new life in the band especially with the addition of new guitarist. Mick taylor sticky fingers would be their first full album of new material to feature mick taylor who had joined the band. Two years before by nineteen seventy..

So maybe the twelve brennan's what what is his presence while a decent number five to one for and you know one thing that I looked at that horse this morning and ended up citing elsewhere. Just because kimmel's wins. Have come with louis sayas. And not that dylan davis is incapable. I i One of the things. I was looking for a little a little something to cam. Separate hit the horse that that i ended up Sort of scratching into because That mike maker White coffers tackles scratched the five so I i ended up Scratching into pratt and marquette with eight weeks long on the rail and that has taken money was eight to one morning. Line is Nine to two and with the favourite coming out of this race somebody was going to take money day. Who's taken the money is that Wore novel brad. Cox for zilla racing got seventy two from the eight to one. Yes even manager. Well rosario up in This source quite frankly awful. The first time out of the debut but this source was seven to two in the morning. Line as a maiden back in Going back into april at akwa duct. So they must like this horse the first time out of a box. They've sat donald for month after month after month but he returns back with the price tag and also running on the grass over very interesting spot. you kind after project. That certain things are going to happen for this to move forward. We've got to raise this kind of going off almost at the same time. There's also a should let you know There they were looking at The monmouth race. There was an objection but it looks like the one four is going to hold their in the gate and about to go and they're going at golden gate now and this is a group of phillies mayors non winners at zoo for a nickel and your favorite two-to-one pearl dragon and yet Jonathan wong second choice three to one actually through thrall thrills legacy had three horses to two one five to two and three to one. So we'll keep an eye on this as they loaded saratoga and we're five minutes to the sixth at woodbine and most importantly the next mandatory rich. We can start to look at the second del mar. Which is the pilot's going to be the fourth mandatory of the seven that we're doing Here's off the turn at golden gate and the three horse here. Seventy two of tim mckenna is going to Read the moment. Although here comes a seventy two rows and go trying to get there but Is not going to so there you go there. There's a couple of short prices at at Golden gate and they're underway at saratoga. Why on the house turn comrades come on through to grab the lead. Second gordon runs in third. Extreme outside is chased the cotton next day in Four has the field. It's the back stretch. The quarter went in twenty four seconds and it is wicked karma who has the lead sugarplum. Gang is next in a second and now we're novel has advanced up at the third brennan's wars down on the inside in four them between horses. Fast gordon and chase the cat on the extreme outside insects. That's almost four nights back to high tone who runs in seven and then it's pivotal run. The next eight followed by reunion tour in a ninety eight wings long is in ten followed by a lay on the dow and losing the ryder The pulled up number. Six mr watt x. The quarter wins afro. Forty eight and three three quarters in one thirteen and two and it is wicked karma taking the field to the top of the stretch. We're novel on the outside and brennan's wore down towards the wral. It is still okay. Tara here comes war novel on the outside war novel. the challenge trauma for the lead brennan's warriors in third fast. Gordon is looking for a way through on the outside is pivotal ron along with a week's on iran iraq told us take victory poll often upset. Sixteen one hell there you go there. You go rich. There's there's some there's some delays from the room or the table right next to some serious jerry that was failed cavalry charge to the wire and the anybody who was popping out of the woodwork. For that this is george. Weaver and manny franko sixteen to one pivotal. Run the war dancer gelding and boy. This the complexion of this race kept changing. Got markedly here. The past the sixteenth poll and in the late stages in fact boy manny franko wrapped up the eighth fast. Gordon is going to be second. So there was a flurry of prices. Here at the end of The late doubles is going to be a big up big numbers. Yeah no question about it. I mean two things In in hindsight looking at the source on the in the racing his source of been bet really strong three races in a row and quite frankly had not run very well at all but there was a major equipment. Change coming into this race. Blinkers on for george weaver and obviously the horse responded manny. Franko getting on replacing. Eric can sell it This horse really ran the best race of his life to get the job done today. Eleven eight one. That was my eight weeks long That i never. I never even really saw but somehow ended up third and then wicked karma who set a pace under. Jackie davis ended up fourth This there's a lot of trips in this race. This could be an interesting when we get back down to belmont. I think people are going to wanna watch this race and take some notes and see what it's gonna produce you've got Let's see one hundred and sixty dollar double for a buck. Because of this you've got let's see the pick four is gonna pay thirteen hundred and the pick five pick five is going to pay twenty three thousand eighty three sweet with. Yeah with with the with the late double. So there's new york showcase day and everybody can start to get excited about Tomorrow's travers and i mean obviously we'll talk about it and and the rich tomorrow it happens to be a mandatory which is kind of. It's kind of surprising to me a little bit that they picked it because essential quality. You know basically it's it's challenging everybody to the to go against essential quality. Yeah i you know. I have done the traverse card. So i if you don't want to talk about it at all later on i certainly have The Handicapping sheet that. I did a report for brisbane. dot com. So that's available on the website. They won't then. I'm not gonna i'm not gonna press you to to You know give away what people are are going to pay for to.

"I'm going to take a couple of days off. Hang out with my family and you all Friday. Friday okay, so we're GONNA. Make today show count. We're going to put everything into it today. Listen I've given up on the hair I just I don't know what I'm doing, we. Can keep banging on me for the hair. It is what it is I'm keeping it real. This is authentic me. This is me without a comb. Okay, so pro football focus is something I. Follow I, liked the guys there don't always think they're right, but I followed them. They're kind of back in my good graces. They did the top ten NFL players. They rank the top fifty. I'll just give you the top ten. It's not the most valuable. It's not about stats, although stats matter. Aaron Donald of the Rams Number One Patrick Mahomes Jones Atlanta Quinton Nelson Colts George kiddle tied niners. Michael Thomas Six saints. Russell Wilson should be higher, but seven's fine Lamar Jackson Eight de'andre Hopkins Nine. Christian McCaffrey ten. No problem with it I move some people up some people down. Mostly right Aaron Rodgers. Did Not make the fifty. Now. He makes my top fifty I absolutely think he's influential. He has a unique skill set. He's really smart. He runs around. He makes place. He's in my top fifty. But they had three packers in the top fifty. Aaron wasn't one of them. And they use data. and. They had Davante Adams at thirty, eight, forty to tackle David back. The area and forty four was Kenny Clarke by the way they all all make my top fifty two. Aaron would, but he didn't make. There's and it was interesting because this week I have talked about. Why is Aaron Rodgers the last two years led the NFL in throwaways, two different coaches. Why because I think he's protecting his legacy. More than elevating I think he's become a very safe quarterback. The Great Young quarterbacks in this league mahomes and Carson Wentz jump out to me. They are risk takers. They are gunslingers. I think going forward for the young. Young coaches. They are risk takers I think that's the future of the NFL. -servative I think it's more progressive more risk oriented. Than it's ever been and I think a better brand of football. Errands become safer. Far was a gunslinger to the end, but it's interesting when they talk about David Bahktiar tackle one of the things they put in here his he has the hardest pass blocking responsibility of any tackle protecting Aaron Rodgers a quarterback who holds the holds the ball longer than almost all other passers. throwaways holding the ball longer. Paralyzed, by making a mistake or throwing an interception, not just letting it rip like a Mahomes like Carson wentz. Don't tell me it's all about weapons. Carson Winston Avenue Weapons. So this is what we've gone back and forth on, it's not I would have in my top fifty. My point is been I think is easy aged. He's become a safe quarterback I. Don't think maybe it is his DNA I think he's at his best kind. Let her rip plantain afoot, and letting it rip and get some interceptions. This is what Greg Cosell has said on our show now for three straight years. Say What you want about. How in riders a he's super talented. We know that he'll be a hall of Famer, but Aaron Rodgers over the last number of years has evolved, or one could say devolved into a player that plays a lot outside or structure and outside of Rhythm, and when you get a chance to watch the coaching tape as I do and this is not an interpretation. This is what the tape tells you. He leaves a lot of throws on the field within the timing of. Of the offense that are there to be thrown and I guarantee that that bothers medical floor and given the age of Rogers, and and who knows how long ride just comply the age of Rogers and mental floor clearly coming off last season, having probably pretty much carte blanche at this point I think he's looking to say hey. I'M GONNA. Start to put this offense together. The way I wanted to look and will rogers is great. I'm a little frustrated with the way our offense plays out. They draw plays Aaron things. There's too much risk. He throws it away. Holds it too long. What leflore talk about that clip from the rich Eisen show? What did? Matt Leflore recently Santa Press Conference. We're not dynamic enough. PF telling you. They got players. Players this goes back I'm not trying to be right I like getting it right. I see something I observe something I, say something, and then in recent days pro football Focus Matt Leflore. Come out and say yeah. I mean there's there's there's a structure of a play. He won't do what the coaches want. He wants to do it his way. His way to me has become too safe. Here's Joe with the news. No heard on the news. This is the headline news well. The NFL has informed teams about new training camp rules this season in a memo the teams yesterday the League stated that all training camps must take place at their home facilities, and no joint practices with other teams will be allowed this make sense to me. Yeah, I mean this is an easy decision to make. It's last year. Ten teams had their. They practice away from their main facilities and obviously the cowboys. Are Most notably known for having their camp in Oxnard, not far from here in California, which is obviously a big trip for that entire team, and all the personnel and reporters and everything else so they're going to have to habit in Dallas, or at the or the Frisco Star their training facility there, so nfl players are also not expected to return to their team facilities until training camp, which is another kind of interesting out, so they continue working out of home until training camp because of the murder of George Floyd.

But there are he according to him his testimony there eleven more that were that were that he can get copies of from his Bank, or the I suppose we could get comes from his Bank. There were there were a lot of questions as you know, about the wisdom of inviting a man convicted of lying to congress to come back and testify before congress having sat now through many hours of this. Do you believe today did prove a useful exercise? And if so why? I do believe it was a useful exercise for a few different reasons. The first is as as my colleague, Jamie Raskin mentioned, the Republicans are not mad about him lying to congress. They're mad that he stopped lying to congress, and you know, every single person that I know at some point in their life. So this kind of false equivalency that the Republicans are making which is that if you've lied once then you can never tell the truth again is absolutely absurd. So I think you know, he Mr. Cohen has does not have a whole lot to gain by lying at this point. Truthful in his testimony today. Yeah. I mean, I think he's you you have to verify things, and that's the role of the committee. But I think that as as you do with any cooperating witness in any kind of prosecution, you use this as important context in as an important foundation to to figure out where to go next, and which other witnesses we need to call and what other kind of trails we need to follow. And that's exactly what what I think. This let us and was there a trail that leaped out at you that you thought I'm going to go back and have my staff jump on that one.

"The president's former lawyer managed to tie both of today's big news stories together with a rhetorical. Vo. Michael Cohen was testifying before the house oversight committee. He brought up the bad press surrounding Donald Trump's medical deferment from military service in Vietnam. Cohen says Trump wouldn't hand over his medical records. Just told him handle it told him not to answer questions from reporters. He finished the conversation. The following comment. You think I'm stupid not going to Vietnam? I find it ironic. The president that you are in Vietnam right now a reference to the summit underway in Vietnam and one of many jaw dropping moments from today's testimony tonight. We are questioning the lawmakers who've been questioning Cohen and from the capital now, we're joined by California Democrat, Katie hill. She is vice chair of the house oversight committee. Congressman welcome. Thank you so much for having me point me to what in your view was the most significant revelation from Cohen's testimony. Well, as far as I'm concerned, the most significant revelation was that President Trump made payments directly from his personal Bank account to Mr. Cohen as reimbursements for the payments that Mr. Cohen made at two stormy Daniels to to as part of this scheme to to try and deceive voters to keep her silence. These illegal hush money payments, and Mr. Trump paid well he was president. And I think that as far as I'm concerned, you know, all of the actions that he did before he became president are horrible enough. But once you are committing acts as president of the United States, it takes it to a completely different level and the revelation that was striking today was the date of the check that Cohen says this was dated in two thousand seventeen. So when President Trump was already president when he was in the White House. Exactly exactly have you actually seen that check. By the way, has it been introduced and has the committee had access to to these documents. That were introduced yes, it has. And in fact, it was displayed in the hearing on the screen. So you got to look at it and see the signature, and you're satisfied that it is legit. And that it's dated when when Cohen says was dated. As I mean as far as I can tell I didn't I didn't personally examine it. But I know that our staff the committee staff has and we will be looking into it even further. He he presented one. But there are he according to him his testimony there eleven more that were that were that he he can get copies of from his Bank. The as we could get comes from his Bank. There were a lot of questions as you know, about the wisdom of inviting a man convicted of lying to congress to come back and testified before congress having sat now through many hours of this. Do you believe today did prove useful exercise? And if so why? I do believe it was a useful exercise for a few different reasons. The first is as as my colleague, Jamie Raskin mentioned, the Republicans are not mad about him lying to congress.

And that's exactly what what I think. This let us and was there a trail that left out at you that you thought I'm going to go back and have my staff jump on that one. Well, one of the ones for sure is that I think we need to be having a conversation with Mr Watts Weisselberg. So I think that that's a that's a significant one that we it became clear that he has a lot of information that we can. You know, we can glean a lot of information from I want to let you respond in the minute or so we have left to the charges leveled by Republican members of the committee that by inviting a convicted liar. Today's hearing was never intended to contribute to the public record of facts that it was instead a partisan hit job motivated by desire to lay the groundwork for impeachment at personally, I find that completely offensive to the integrity of our chairman and to the integrity of this body. And what I see instead is that we have a a group of members of congress on the other side of the aisle that have been doing everything in their power to to try and cover up the truth or tried to at least not give the American people the access that they deserve to hear the full story. Right. And ultimately up to each person individually as as citizens to decide whether or not to believe Mr. Cohen and just like they do with any other testimony that they're going to hear. And ultimately the fact that they're trying to prohibit that to me is is the shady part, California, Democrat, Katie hill, speaking to us from the capital congresswoman, thank you. Thank you so much and elsewhere on the program. Question a Republican member of the house oversight and reform committee. The house had some other business today to they passed sweeping legislation aimed at tightening the nation's gun laws. It's the first of two bills backed by House Democrats, both would strengthen the federal background check system for firearm purchases, but they are expected to fail in the Republican controlled Senate NPR's Brockton Booker has more on this vote. The yeas are two forty and the nays are one ninety the Bill has passed the passage of the bipartisan background checks act of two thousand nineteen was never really in doubt. It had two hundred thirty cosponsors one of them was freshman congresswoman, Lucy MacBeth has many of you may know gun violence is an issue that is deeply personal for me. The georgia. Democrat son was killed when a man opened fire on a car full of teenagers in two thousand twelve changing gun laws is her top priority gun violence prevention and a desire to make meaningful change is the very reason. I am here. Today under current law. Only licensed gun dealers have to conduct background checks. The house Bill mandates federal background checks people formed on all gun sales. That includes purchases made online at a gun shows. No background checks will be needed for transferring guns between close family members despite having five GOP co-sponsors. It got strong pushback from House Republicans, including Doug Collins of Georgia. All this legislation will do is burden law body citizens wishing to exercise their second member rides including defending themselves from the gun toting criminals. This Bill does nothing to combat Republicans were able to get one victory an amendment requiring immigration. Authorities to be notified when someone in the US illegally tries to buy a gun, but minority whip Steve Scalise who was badly injured by gunman during a congressional baseball practice in two thousand seventeen still oppose the Bill. He says it's exemptions. Like allowing a friend to borrow a firearm for sports shooting could cause confusion, they say, there's an exemption in the Bill, but it's. Written. So vaguely that you not only need a bring your hunting partner, you might need to bring your attorney to find out if loaning your shotgun to your friend makes you a felon under this Bill tomorrow. How Democrats are expected to call a vote on another background. Check Bill that one calls for firearms dealers to wait at least ten business days before completing a sale up from the current three. Neither Bill though is expected to get through the GOP controlled Senate in the White House has already signaled. The president would.

This is the fourth mass exoneration the last two years cases attached to this creep, the former police sergeant in his unit worked at the abbey wells housing project for years, and we charge protection tax for drug dealers and residents, and then let them use and let them deal the total number of exonerated now comes to sixty three three and the worst part. I was reading this morning. It was twenty fifteen twenty four years ago that a guy was on trial. And he said, I have been these drugs been planted by a rogue cops, and they're like, no jail. Right. And he's getting his honoring today because. Oh, and by two thousand fifteen they knew this. So they just thought he was lying. Buying or that he was using the headline to, but he really was drugs were planning on this guy. He's going to get out of jail. And in the case of Mr Watts those around him that assisted him in knew this was going on do we have all of them? I don't even know he's retired in Las Vegas. Watson's surprised if you've got even been charged. I'm not sure he I think I think that they I think he did time or he maybe was. In the newsroom, tell me what happened to Mr Watts feel like he got out of jail perhaps. And now, he's he's retired. They added onto his pension. Yeah. I'm sure. Next.

I suppose is what is called for people that through boiling water up in the air and apparently didn't account for the wind did you or they spilled it feel bad for making through that. Now that he could have burned himself. I trust. I trust anybody who works on his show smart enough, not to burn themselves on room temperature water. Yeah. So that was mistake.

I don't have a cat reference here to bring you bring it at three assess right? Yeah. Nice to know that don't like about hockey. I'll tell you this right now that I was so excited. And then the thing I don't like is that other teams can win too. Blackhawks to rolling. I think it was on Friday. There were two points out of the play another four another four.

"Is Cohen has said plenty he confirmed yesterday that he paid a company to try to rig online polls in favor of his client. Donald Trump Cohen said he did. So at Trump's direction and BuzzFeed reports Cohen said one thing more to federal investigators Cohen is admitted lying to congress about President Trump's business dealings with Russia. And according to BuzzFeed Cohen asserts that he lied at the president's direction. Adam shift ahead of a house committee examining Russia described that as a. Crime saying the president, quote may have suborned perjury. We're gonna talk about all this with Clint watts. He's a former FBI special agent who now researches cybersecurity and intelligence good morning. Good morning. Is it important that Cohen tell historian public? I don't know that it is. I think the most important investigative part of this is probably already happened with special counsel Muller's investigation, and what I worry about both these hearings at at the house in this public debate that we are, you know, the cable news at night is that it actually undermines people's understanding of what actually will come out. I think eventually from special counsel monitor. Oh, because there are different lines of questioning there might be different versions of the truth that it becomes hard to keep straight. What we actually know. That's exactly right it. How would we be able to sort that out? Because ultimately, they'll probably only be one reporting route from the Muller results. And so if you're listening to this over time, it can become very confusing to try and understand. Well, let's take it face value. This BuzzFeed report Cohen telling investigators, Donald Trump told me to lie. The president of the United States told me to lie that is certainly consistent. With everything that Cohen has said in public that he was always acting at the president's direction. How significant is that allegation? I think it's significant because now it involves one branch of government, essentially, undermining another branch of government. This is different from everything we saw up in in terms of Russian collusion and election in terms of obstruction. This is a very current sort of thing that just happened recently. So I think you could put the president in a very dangerous position bay change some people's view in congress of how to handle this maybe with impeachment. This is you know, helping someone or encouraging someone to lie to try and avoid the truth with regards to congress that could change people's opinion because it was testimony before congress that Cohen allegedly says was was compromised here that makes it more significant to you. I think it does because ultimately impeachment is a decision that comes out of congress. And so, you know, up to this point we've talked about a special counsel produces results and then. Maybe they turned that over to congress to pursue impeachment. While now, this could just really be all in congress, his hands in many ways, this would be a wide that was essentially issue to congress. This you know, almost sets aside the special counsel investigation. I want to know a couple of things that have been said by Rudy Giuliani. The president's lawyer as regards to Michael Cohen's latest alleged charges Giuliani, simply notes that Cohen is a liar liar that is certainly true Giuliani. Also made a statement the other day to CNN's Chris Cuomo about the president's collusion alleged collusion with Russia. The president has always denied collusion, but Guiliani puts in qualifications on that. Let's listen, I never said there was no collusion between the campaign or between people in the campaign. I have not the United States. There is not a single bit of evidence. The president is committed the crime, you could you admit here conspired with the Russians to hack the DNC. Okay. I never said there was no collusion. So no longer denying that somebody on the campaign was talking with the Russians. Yes, it seems like a slow pivot. Meaning that there was one version of this story from Rudy Giuliani before. And it suddenly changing or being qualified or you're not really sure what he's saying. And this has been part of the public trial essentially that Giuliani has been waging against this special counsel investigation. So I think what's concerning is he either doesn't know or he does know. And he's concerned that the results of the special counsel investigation will continue to come out, and it will really change the American perception of what was going on the Trump campaign. So we hear Giuliani the lawyers anxiety and the changing story there. Mr watts. Thanks very much. Really? Appreciate it. Thank you, former FBI special agent. Clint watts. Researchers cybersecurity at the foreign policy research institute. Big crowds are going to be marching through Washington DC this weekend. And a major focus is going to be on abortion and reproductive rights. The anti abortion rights March for life kicks off its annual rally today followed by March to the supreme court and then tomorrow progressive women from around the country and their allies will gather for the women's March, which was first organized in two thousand seventeen interstates to President Trump's election and pure Serra. Mccamman covers the abortion debate and is going to be at both marches issues in our studios this morning, Sarah, you give morning. So I think I mean on all sides of debates like abortion, people would say there's always a lot at stake is especially so this year two thousand nineteen it really feels that way. I mean, remember it was just a not even a year ago. Right. That Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement last summer and that set up a huge debate over these issues. He had been the swing vote on the supreme court for a lot of issues, including reproductive rights. And now abortion rights opponents are feeling more hopeful than they have in a long time that they could see Rover. Versus Wade overturned or weekend. That of course is the nineteen Seventy-three decision that legalized abortion nationwide. This March the March for life in opposition to abortion has been happening almost since that time, but organizers and activists are are hopeful as they head into this year's March. So as as we look at the March for life happening where we're going gonna see more optimism and more more of a sense of of hope and mission the twenty nine thousand could be different for them. Is that fair to say for sure they're they're cautiously optimistic though, I would say not necessarily expecting row to be overturned wholesale. But they do see a big opportunity to advance a state laws restricting abortion more deeply than they've been able to in the past. Here's Tom mcklusky of March for life. If you were to ask me during the two thousand sixteen campaign, the President Trump would be the one that would help in putting in these policies. I probably would have thought you're crazy, but it's certainly a much different scenario now with. Both Neil Gorsuch and Brett Cavanaugh on the bench. We hear this a lot from antiabortion rights activists. They're happy with what President Trump is doing his efforts to restrict public funding for organizations like Planned Parenthood and his appointees to the judiciary. Well on the flip side of this how much anxiety? Are we going to be sensing from abortion rights activists in this moment rate? They're concerned they say, they're also energized. I would expect to hear about this tomorrow at the women's March Planned Parenthood is one of the partners sponsors for that March. I spoke recently with Dr Lena win who's new president of Planned Parenthood. And here's what she said. This is a time where everything is on the line with Brad Kavanagh on on the supreme court. We are facing a situation aware within the next year. Rovers assuage could very well be further eroded or overturned and so abortion rights activists organizing at the state level around these issues trying to. To firm up support for abortion rights and state houses. And they're pointing to the fact that a lot of New Democrats were just elected to state houses. And of course, to congress, many of them women and others who campaigned on issues, including reproductive rights. So they see that as a good sign. You mentioned organizing at the state level. I mean these marches are going to be in Washington. But but as we've learned from your reporting, it's really important to follow cases working their way through through states. Not just scream court for sure this battle will play out in the courts, but also in state houses around the country if Roe is weekend. Those state legislatures will become even more important in terms of regulating abortion. NPR Serna common. Sarah. Thanks a lot. Thank you.

"And if he does it doesn't happen. And so you have to propose legislation and basically come up with a policy that has this broad support or it won't go anywhere, and that's a legal mechanism, but the formal mechanisms are things like getting the Senate to sign onto something. And so if a Representative wanted to propose legislation and the Senate felt that would be too disruptive. The Senate would say so and then in, you know, formerly you could still bring it to a vote, but informally it it just wouldn't really be a good idea. It would be seen as something that was basically promoting division in a way that Romans really tended to not appreciate or tolerate. I wanna ask you a little bit about why the American founding fathers, turn their eyes to Rome. There are other models. We were more closely linked to to Europe, particularly Britain. Why did why did they look back at Rome and its Representative Republic as opposed to other possible models? I think there's a couple of reasons I mean, the British the British system and the British experienced certainly did influence what they were looking at. But there also is a a very sort of robust political theorizing of why the Republic, succeeded and agreed author in polygamous in essence takes Plato's idea of a Republic in which there are sort of different elements that sort of buttress each other and prevent the degeneration of the state and said in essence, this is what Rome has has brought about and this really influence, the founders as a principal for sort of stable way to govern to govern. A state the other thing that I think particular peeled to them as the Republic was a constitutional model that could be scaled up the, you know, it started as a city state, but it functioned very effectively also as an entity that governed millions of people in Italy, what it was able to do was command, and basically create this sort of process of consensus building both as a sort of small entity. But also as a large entity, and I think the founders would have looked at this as something that was particularly desirable, given the size of the early United States. And also the diversity of interests across it, a Republican model could do what they were envisioning the United States would do and it could continue to scale up as the United States expanded. And I think that's an important lesson. I soon presumably, you know, it's been a lot of years, but, you know, thinking back to the Greek system of democracy from my from my school days, the idea of having a participatory democracy where. Everyone had a vote much harder to scale up. You can do that in small townships New England harder to do throughout all the colonies and beyond. Exactly. And the other thing that I think's important to keep in mind is, you know, we when we talk about what our system is shorthand, we use a democracy. It's a Representative democracy, and it's a Republic, and the founders would have been horrified to think that the model that we like to associate with is classical Athens, you know, the sort of birthplace of democracy in the popular minds. They would see that as horrid. Now, they did not believe that everybody's voice was equal. And they did not want decisions made in a way where everybody's voice counted equally. They wanted those voices to be filtered through representatives. And so the Roman system is particularly appealing. If what you're looking to do is channel popular voices through people who you see as perhaps more responsible than regular people. Speaking of scaling up. We have a call from New Orleans Louisiana, obviously part of the. Louisiana purchase. Julia. Your question of for for for Mr Watts. Hi, yes. I'm a climate reporter based here in Edward would you reflect on the role climate, instability and environmental degradation played out in the sixth century with tribal migration and the impact on the fall of Rome specifically as it's related to insights, the can provide to climate change today and its potential impacts on immigration and political stability in both Europe and the United States..
