A borrowing is just gotten more expensive with the Federal Reserve raising interest rates again warning it might not be the last time. Fed chair Jerome Powell knows the latest three quarters of a percentage interest rate hike is bitter medicine, but says it is their best tool because inflation remains well above our longer run goal of 2%. The Federal Reserve will likely keep raising rates until inflation retreats, it's just not sure when that will happen, or if future rate hikes will be smaller. And he failed ABC News, Washington.

"Praised the Democrats, the Democrats praised John Stewart, then John Stewart might run for office as a Democrat while new media members praised Johnson because they've created this little echo chamber for themselves. They can't hear outside the echo chamber. But it's not going to help them, because again, in the end, Democrats are going to have to run on their record. And their record here is making the economy much, much worse. So Democrats have a backup strategy. Their backup strategy is that they are going to accuse Republicans of being radicals. We talked about this last week. They're openly saying this, that their goal is to accuse Republicans of being extremely radical. So Al sharpton, this is an amazing thing. Al sharpton, who legitimately was involved in the incitement of at least two riots in New York City. Al sharpton is one of the great race baiters in American history. Al sharpton is one of the most corrupt people in American politics who shakes down corporations by threatening them with protesters outside their headquarters unless they give money to the national action network. Al sharpton, who still has a show on MSNBC, is saying that there are Republican extremists, like Marco Rubio and Mitt Romney. Because they can't run against Trump, Trump ain't on the ballot. So instead, what they're going to do is they're going to run against everybody. Everybody is a radical Republican, according to the Democrats. So here's Al sharpton going after Mitt Romney and Marco Rubio for the great crime of not voting in favor of enshrining same sex marriage into federal law. Take fly to senator Marco Rubio. He says he's voting against the bill because it's quote a stupid ways of time. Considering Rubio wants compared the size of his hands to Donald Trump's, perhaps the good senator is not the best judge of frivolous behavior. Utah senator Mitt Romney told political, he hasn't given the bill much consideration, apparently he never formed an opinion on the topic. Despite being governor of Massachusetts, when the state became the first in the nation to recognize gay marriages in 2004. Republican senators tried to portray themselves as a cut above their rabble rousing colleagues in the house. Right now, they had the opportunity to prove they are capable of representing all Americans, not just their base. By the way, you're now a radical. If you don't even have an opinion on the subject, if Mitt Romney just tried to move away from the subject, that makes you a radical as well. Meanwhile, Democrats are actively propping up the most radical Republicans in every primary they can find in James carville is defending this, both ethically, and as a matter of politics. Idea of a political campaign is to win the election. It acts in its own interest and the stake Pennsylvania. It clearly was in Josh Shapiro's interest at the Republicans nominate Doug mastriano. I've done the same thing. I would do the same thing. I don't see any ethical or moral problem with doing this. And again, I think most of the opposition to this is from the pontifical class, mostly located on the coast. Amazing, amazing stuff. So their backup plan is Republicans are so radical. They can't be trusted with power, also will help them get nominated in primaries so that we can run against them. So who exactly really is radical in American politics? Well, my suggestion is that it is the Democrats who are significantly more radical than the Republicans, particularly when it comes to social issues. And you can see it on pretty much every social issue. So to take an example, when it comes to monkeypox, it is a source of constant amazement to me. That there is a very easy solution to monkey box. There are actually two. One is there's a vaccine. The vaccine needs to be more widely available. The FDA has prevented it from being more widely available. So that is solution number one. And the federal government's already screwing that up. Doctor Scott gottlieb former commissioner of the FDA, and a senior fellow at American enterprise institute, one of the loudest voices during COVID. He now suggests that the CDC has failed on monkeypox again. He says our country's response to monkeypox has been plagued by the same shortcomings we had with COVID. If monkeypox gains a permanent foothold in the United States and becomes an endemic virus that joins our circulating repertoire of pathogens, it will be one of the worst public health failures in modern times. Not only because of the pain and peril of the disease, but also because it was extremely avoidable. There is limited testing access, there was not enough stockpile of vaccine, even though the vaccine was widely available. Okay, but that's really not the most extreme response to monkeypox. The most extreme response to monkeypox continues to be the complete unwillingness of anyone in the media chattering class or in the Democratic Party to simply say, stop having gay orgies. I understand that this is unpopular with a particular segment of the democratic base, but you guys literally advocated for the shutdown of all of American life, all of it. Kids going to school, going to the park with your children, being able to go to work, killing hundreds of thousands of small businesses. For COVID, in airborne virus. This is a virus that has passed almost entirely between gay men having sex with one another. And you can't say, stop having sex with randos. You can't say it. According to the east bay times, amid a burgeoning monkeypox outbreak that is so far disproportionately affected gay and bisexual men. I love the idea that it's like, well, it's just random. It's just randomly. The Rain is randomly falling on this group. No, it's actually connected with the behavior that people are engaging in that is passing the monkey pox. Okay, this is direct. Bay Area public health officials and organizers of one of the region's most beloved LGBTQ events are walking in difficult line between preventing the spread of the virus while fighting the stigma of the virus as a disease limited to the LGBTQ community. Well, I have a question. I have a question. Why exactly are those two things in conflict? Why does it create a stigma as a disease limited to the LGBTQ community? By saying, don't engage in promiscuous that's going to lead to spread of the disease. I mean, it seems to me there's more of a stigma attached to gay promiscuity already. Not to

"Industry's right. Emily, so you have this long bad history with tobacco companies and menthols and the black community. How are civil rights groups reacting to this phenomenon right now? NAACP has come out alongside public health groups in favor of a menthol ban over time. Their take is that the targeting of this community by the tobacco industry itself was unjust and that black lives lost to menthol cigarettes as a result is unjust, far more unjust than the implications of a menthol ban. I think it's important to note that the bands that are being discussed is about banning the sale of menthol, not the purchase of menthol. So it's not targeting people who would pursue a purchase. I think it's also worth noting, Al sharpton, however, who is the public face of the national action network, another civil rights group, has spoken out against the ban. And the national action network is sponsored by Reynolds American. So you do have groups coming down on both sides. What is sharpton's rationalization for being against a ban? He's invoked the name of Eric Garner in these cases. So his argument is similar to other black leaders who have been in touch with Reynolds American that this ban is going to cause unintended consequences. This is the term we hear over and over again in the scripts of all of these leaders that if you ban this, you are going to see unintended consequences for black Americans who are choosing myth all cigarettes and that they're going to be more heavily policed and it's going to create a new layer of racism in the interactions between police and the black community. So Reynolds American has also surrounded itself with other black leaders. How does Reynolds Americans board an executive leadership look like? It's pretty white. Despite the number of black leaders that we've seen working on behalf of the tobacco industry, these lobbyists and public figures, there's still a significant lack of representation across both executive level and board level positions of all the major cigarette makers. In comparison to those who have lobbied for the company against banning menthol cigarettes, almost every member of the company's senior management team is white. Coming up, Reynolds Americans use of black trauma to stoke fears of a menthol ban, gets even more brace it.

Subscribe and listen to border city at San Diego union tribune dot com slash border city, Apple podcasts, or wherever you get your podcasts. Hi, I'm Matt Brennan. TV editor for the Los Angeles Times.

Subscribe now, wherever you get your podcasts. Okay, so Reynolds Americans is enlisting the help of black leaders and organizations to lobby against a ban on menthols, but Ben, I still don't understand how that deputy police chief that you heard at a luncheon, connected George Floyd to menthol. The connection is really that once you ban the sale of menthol cigarettes, you're not going to entirely ban its use or people's desire to smoke mentors and that will essentially drive the market underground. And then if a police officer says smells or mental cigarette while he's walking down the street and there's somebody there smoking a cigarette, it gives him an excuse to stop that person and search that person and what few people realize about the George Floyd story is that actually he was killed just outside a store in Minneapolis, which is known as the best place in town to buy menthols. And so you have this kind of quite chilling parallel between the menthol story. And that's why I think it's so easy for these people to bring his name into this debate. One because it's so emotive, but two because of those kind of tenuous links between Floyd and menthols. Emily is that the only tactic they have because I don't see any argument about, well, you know, menthols are actually not that bad for you compared to other cigarettes. And I'm not hearing the more libertarian arguments like we shouldn't ban anything. All I'm seeing is just mentioning the name of these men and women murdered by police, you know, Eric Gardner, George Floyd. Right. The individuals who have argued on behalf of keeping an exemption for menthols, they have acknowledged upon occasion that there is a priority for them for young people to not smoke. They do touch upon the importance of focusing on the damage that tobacco can do in general, so they'll acknowledge that smoking is harmful for health, but that if leaders want to pursue a ban on tobacco products, they should pursue one that targets all tobacco products, not just that of choice for black smokers. One of the tactics they've used is generating a base to show up at rallies, paying attendees for events that they might otherwise not have known about and generating a base to show up and show support for fighting the ban on menthol. One thing that we uncovered during the course of this investigation was this organization called neighborhood forward, which again emerged out of the protests that happened around George pods murder back in 2020. It's a relatively young organization and it's led by a black pastor from LA and guy called KW two us. And what we found was that they've been very active in voicing their opposition to California's proposed ban on mental cigarettes to bill called SB 7 9 three. And they were organized numerous rallies over the last couple of years in LA and across California. And what we actually found was that people were being offered payment to turn up at these protests. We found one message that offered $80 for people to turn up for two to three hours one morning outside LA city hall and the neighborhood forward were providing t-shirts and signs that said no ban on menthol or white can smoke blocked can not. And so we started digging into basically where neighborhood forward gets its money and we actually found very few answers both from individuals involved in the organization and also from what we could find from public records. But what we did find was that KW two, he used to be involved with sharpton's national action network, which we know has received money from Reynolds American. Also on the board was a lobbyist who had worked for Reynolds American just a few years ago, specifically on this issue in LA, but we feel that there are unanswered questions about where neighborhood forward gets its money. They were paying people $80 to turn up at these protests and what seems like a genuine display of outrage at this bill in California actually.

"Richard angles exclusive report from inside a firefight between afghan forces and the taliban. We'll have the latest on that credible reporting with us. We have white house editor for political sam stein former aid for the george w bush white house and state departments elise jordan and host of msnbc's politics nation and president of the national action network. Reverend al sharpton is with us. This morning we're going to begin with former police. Captain eric adams poised become new. York city's next mayor after being declared the winner in a hotly contested democratic primary two. Ap call the race for the brooklyn borough president last night after thousands of absentee ballots were counted. The numbers saw former city sanitation. Commissioner catherine garcia cut adams lead to just over eight thousand votes but with only a small amount of votes outstanding. Her deficit is likely too much to overcome. Atoms will now go on to face. The republican nominee guardian angels founder curtis leeway in november general election. Reverend al just before we dig it into this. Let's just talk about what we've just seen in this race and it really shows how much how much you understand not only your city but also your constituents your congregants. I should say and those who consider you being an advocate for them you have for years been trying to explain to as you call them lot liberals where the democratic party is and where a lot of people of color are that. They don't want pie. In the sky pronouncements and policy proposals they want their street safe. They want good jobs. They want basics and here we have conservatives and moderates doing extraordinarily well and this new york mayor's race and progressives not faring quite so well in new york city first of all talk about the likely winner on the democratic side and also what is what does that tell you about. Not just new york politics but national politics. Eric adams put together a broad coalition of that. I think shows where we are going in the future. The democratic party nationally. You must remember. He won four of the five boroughs including staten island and at the time it was unimaginable for black candidate for mayor to win stat. Now he wants that now then. At the same time we saw a broad coalition in manhattan elect a black to the district attorney's nomination or see like that. So i think both you look at alvin. Brags race for the district attorney in manhattan a very prestigious position. First time of black guy. And eric adams at the same time same primer. Both of them ran one that understood the police reform movement that people like leave pot up but the lead for safety. Both of them came down in the middle of say we must deal with inequality but we also must deal with how the city is going to function. And i think that many of our people are in the democratic party in the so-called left have confused noise would what is sound. You can make noise as long as what you're making noisy about. Its sound people want to be safe at the same time. They wanna see reform now. And at least jordan. You can look at what happened in new york city. Of course look what happened to the democratic primary in twenty twenty joe biden the really the one moderate in the in the entire field i think most people would say ended up winning the race and you look at the the crime sprees that are going across the united states right now. Crime rates going up certainly rates for murder and violent crimes. Going up gun crimes going up and boy there. Sure are a lot of parallels it seems with what we saw back in the nineteen seventies and democrats democratic primary voters in queens in the bronx. Staten island in brooklyn responded. By electing the most conservative candidate they could elect a former cop who is not going to do what a lot of people on the far left have been asking for over the past few years joe. De-fund the police is a losing message for democrats. We see that in this race. And we're going to see it in other races where you as americans are responding to increase of crime in their communities and you look at what happened in new york city and it played out on the ground here among some of the most liberal voters in the country but they wanna save city and they want the police to be adequately funded. They're not asking for overkill. We don't need to have military vehicles down in our downtown cities. We don't need to have a militarized police force but we don't want to abolish the beliefs completely and the concept of defend the blaze just the radicalism of what it would mean. in theory. it scares democratic voters. It scares enough of them where it's going to hurt the party if they don't get their messaging straight on it. Yeah joining us now. City hall and politics reporter for wnyc bridge bergen. Bridget let's go back to the actual new york city election as it as itself. How are the candidates all responding to the outcome here. Eric adams but also those who did not win given just how it played out and how complicated this has been well. We heard a clear declaration of victory from eric adams last night talked about putting together this coalition of five boroughs support on the other hand. We heard statements that were slightly more unclear from both kathryn garcia. And maya wiley. The two candidates who were his closest competitors both talking about not quite fully conceding and in the case of a wiley talking about really one of the other issues that has been the elephant in the room during this race. Which is the conduct of the new york city board of elections and its ability to execute a fair and transparent election. Bridget at sam stein. Here i was just going to ask you about that. I mean i'm not sure. This is the most confidence inspiring election of all time. There was a notable error that the board of elections had about a week ago. What are what are the actual prospects of reform for the board of elections going for this is sort of a common refrain. It feels like after every may oral election that the needs to adjust modernize get up with the times but this in particular seems like a sort of a catapult for some reforms but what would it entail and what are the prospects for it. Well we've heard from state lawmakers in increasing cry to make some reforms there are some pieces of state legislation. that could take effect soon. That could at least help. Modernize the agency in the short term. Give more powers to the set of co executive directors as opposed to just the ten commissioners from each of the boroughs that currently make a lot of the decisions but to really structurally overhaul the agency would require a state constitutional change. And that's a process that takes time it needs to go through two consecutive legislative sessions and then before voters and so what this will require is continued energy focused by state lawmakers. If they really do want to make an overhaul that would change the agency from being a bastion of partisan politics to being a professional nonpartisan agency. So break down the numbers for us if you can. I know it's still too early but it seemed eric. Adams had a pretty comfortable lead after the first round of voting than a lot. And maya in second place then you had. Of course the going through. I guess the nine rounds it would i think i have. I have a heart attack going through nine rows. I couldn't handle. That load around was too much but but how things shake out where this race got so close. Did you have any insights for for viewers. Who wonder what happened to maya wiley. How she dropped down to third. and then how. Kathryn garcia got so close at the end. Where did her strength come from. Well you there are a couple issues at play here. Joe number one. The results that we got on primary night where only the first choice votes of people voted in person on night during during early voting and then they did not apply the ranked choice voting algorithm to them on those initial results. And so you know. Had they done that. Essentially what we learned last week once. They gave us the corrected. Numbers is what we might have known on primary night. Had they applied it so we could have seen that. This was a closer race to begin with. That's number one number two. We had one hundred twenty five thousand outstanding absentee ballots. In addition to affidavit ballots cast during the primary and when those ballots were counted we saw the margins narrow kathryn garcia. Who came in second place picked up a larger share of those ballots and saw her leave her. She was coming behind. Eric adams by about fifteen thousand votes last week. That slimmed down to about eighty four hundred votes this week. So she picked up some numbers but it wasn't enough and in new york. The only the margin needs to be even closer. If you were to say trigger a manual recount. You'd have to be come within half of one percent and that's something in the neighborhood of five hundred votes so even though we know there are still some ballots outstanding..

David Dinkins, New York's first Black mayor, dies at 93

"Former new york city mayor. David dinkins passed away last night at the age of ninety three. Join now but the reverend al sharpton president the next action network and host of politics nation. Right here on. Msnbc and rev. i've met david dinkins in person because you. I met him through you. I think he was here to do at thirty rock to do an interview for your show. And i'm so excited to meet him. He was such a great man. What are you remember. most about David dinkins well. I knew david dinkins. Since i was a teenager when i was sixteen and started my national youth movement group. He was the lawyer that incorporated us and down through the years. We maintain the relationship. And sometimes i would argue would on call them names and one hundred be more strident and it took time to understand that. He had such grace even under the most tumultuous circumstances and i felt he should be more strident. He said al. You have to learn how to get the job done. Keep your eye on the prize. But i most remember. Is that when we were facing a police. Killing of a young man named ahmadou diablo. Who in the hell of forty one bullets was killed. Nine thousand nine hundred bullets for only gone in his debut. Stick in a key in the door and the police thought. They said they thought he had a weapon. He was just going home. They were looking for someone else and david dinkins. When we started protests every day we would go down to the police headquarters. The main one in new york and sit in and hundreds would be arrested. He called me one. One is at what time y'all have. The demonstrations was a former. I said ten in the morning. he's coming down. I said but we're getting arrested. He's out seeing the morning and he came down and went to one police plaza where he had been mayor and got on a knee way before colin cabinet. He took a knee and was arrested and had them cuffed him with congressman. Charlie rangel and himself and me and we went to jail fighting police reform that he started with that civilian complaint review board. He never left the struggle. He was not wanting to be loud and boisterous but he was firm and made real change happen. Yeah absolutely you know. We started off and we could see charlie rangel and james brown. Lots of people in the photos that are that. I don't know if you can see them. That are coming up as as you're talking and you know we started off by talking about the way that dinkins was taken out of office by rudy. Giuliani this rage. That giuliani stoked already. There in the police against what mayor dinkins wanted to do which was changed policing. I feel like we're kind of having a rerun of that conversation about black lives matter about whether or not police should be free to kill it will in black communities. He tried to do something about it. Wouldn't you take from that fight. Is it dispiriting to think that after great men like this have tried after. You've tried after we've had all of these movements. We're still fighting about this were you. Were you fight you win. You don't fight to say the fight is over in a certain amount of rows. This is not pro boxing wrestling. You fight to you win and every struggle has had long struggles. I remember when nelson mandela gain which you mentioned then david dinkins had me as potted group. That went to the un with him. And just jackson. All of us. And when i thought about it took nelson mandela being jailed. Twenty seven years after fighting many decades around the pon-tae. How can we complain about fighting. We fight to. We win knowing that the victory is certain. And that's what they dickens would always say and as i want more national from new york activism. He said you still fighting. Now keep fighting. He come down national action network rallies. In fact he was there just a few months ago. We had his ninetieth birthday there and we never forgot this. Gentle giant had a had a spine of steel. And he didn't need to be boisterous he just needed to be effective and he was the one that broke that ceiling and made people know you could be the ceo of the biggest city in the world and perform. He revitalized times square. He started this whole community policing and in many ways you are more than correct. Joy is almost like to study donald trump. You have to study rudy giuliani. They took credit for things then get predecessor did and they used race to try and rev up a political career that ended up embarrassing them at the end. Indeed amen. thank you reverend now.
