The Biden stimulus is admirably ambitious. But it brings some big risks, too.
"Stimulus plan. Now Congress Brian they're working on a $2 trillion stimulus plan economist Larry Summers. He was an adviser for the Obama administration. He thinks that's just too big, and it's gonna bring back more inflation, The top of inflation that we haven't seen in a generation. So, Brian a big stimulus package. Is this good or bad for our retirement planning? Well, I think right now the Simmons box. Obviously good rights, propping up a lot of businesses. Lot of liquidity out the market and you see the markets hitting new new highs almost on a weekly basis. We've got some volatility, but One of them's that Larry was talking about. He was a talk economic adviser for former president Obama. He warned President Biden's proposed covert 19 relief packages too big and it could overheat the economy. And it Z. Not the only one to say that. But Summers was Treasury secretary under former President Clinton. He wrote that the proposed $1.9 trillion Timmons could ignite inflationary pressures. Off a kind that we have not seen in a generation and went on to say that Hey, this risk of inflation could have consequences for the dollar and financial stability in general and said stimulus measures of this magnitude contemplated our steps into the unknown. His remarks are really notable because Biden has received almost no pushback from Democrats in pursuit of his legislation. He has begotten a little bit on the Republican side of the aisle. But some progressives have griped about by did not go Big enough. Believe it or not, But Democrats are largely united behind the bill. But what's really interesting with this is that he's getting and hearing from the same side of the aisle for people that aren't in Congress that saying, but historically served under Democratic presidents and saying, Hey, this is probably a little bit too much Republicans have been, you know, kind of saying that, but it is going to jump start our economy. There's no doubt this is going to increase spending is going to prop up our economy. But it is probably going to lead to inflation of what we haven't seen in terms of the level in quite some time, right. But you mentioned the common, you said, overheat the economy to find that for me. Well, it's not real growth is not genuine growth. It's basically artificially induced by all the money that we're printing prior to cove in 19. Our economy was cooking on all levels, and but there was nothing that was stimulating that we had good growth. Independence on energy manufacturing was up real estate. But now, ah lot of the stuff that's being supporters being supported by government dollars While we need to get these businesses propped up and we need to give businesses open and things like that the amount of money that we're printing And pumping into this economy. It's going to inevitably lead to inflation it it has to when we're printing this much money as we are, and all I'm saying is, it's overheating because it's not real, in terms of where we were a year ago with this time, Hey, that was a lot more legitimate before the government basically just pulled the breaker on the whole economy and You know and manually shut it down. So do we need t Get back? Yeah, absolutely Do we need to keep putting this much money into it? I think it's going to depend on on where you're sitting right now. Right? If you're a technology, and you're here Cos been going great. And it's okay to work remote from home. That's great. If you're a restaurant guy he's been, you know, operating at 25% capacity and you were closed for out of the past eight months, because hey, I need I need to pee Pee pee plan I need Relief for my employees, So it really depends on what side of the island and you know where you are in the spectrum of how this pandemic has impacted you from a business standpoint from a personal standpoint, and that's not equal for everybody for sure. Okay, Michaela, I
"We're going to start in the early nineties back before this shift. When the old rules about government borrowing still applied. Bill clinton had just been elected president. He appointed an economist named laura tyson to be one of his top advisors and she looked at the economy and she saw this glaring problem year after year. Both government deficits and interest rates. Were going up and then he said omega if we don't get a hold of this federal deficit than that trend will continue. Those rates will continue upward. That was a very significant concern. Higher interest rates were concerned for a couple of reasons for one thing. Obviously they meant that the government had to pay more to borrow money but also when interest rates for the government went up. Interest rates also went up for everybody else. And that's it up this whole cascade of problems so we're people won't buy as many houses. There won't be as many houses constructed in their wealth as much capital equipment invested in and investments in important part of the Economic growth in your all sorts of every interest sensitive part of the economy the way the government runs a deficit. The way it borrows money is by selling bonds treasury bonds. The government says to really anybody. Okay lend us whatever one hundred dollars and in say ten years we will pay you back with interest will pay you back one hundred twenty dollars. The bond is basically the government's i. Iou you that it will pay back that loan with interest and during the clinton administration because of that link between deficits and interest rates. Everybody in the white house talked about treasury bonds about the bond market time. James carville was a political advisor to president. Clinton was just an obsession. In the early days of clinton's everybody say what's the bond market could house bot mocking react to hell multiple. i don't know it just became this omnipresent. The heart of every conversation. James carville was not an economics guy but as he spent time at the white house he realized that sort of bizarrely all these people who worked there making policy the people who had what seemed like the most powerful jobs in the world. We're in fact terrified of the bond market so when a reporter from the wall street journal called up carville to talk about the bond market. He came up with this line that became sort of famous or at least bond market famous kid. I wanted to grow up with four hundred hitter. The pope and the president. But i just want to be the bond. Market's gonna scare the hell out of everybody pleat. What did he say. A what a hundred hitter like in baseball pope the president baseball. I cannot tell you how many times he said that's me. Every meeting every meeting a lot of my memories are about carville sort of making jokes about you. Know you issues as a bond trader bond traders. These are the people who work in finance all around the world who manage a bunch of money. Generally other people's money pension funds or college endowments that kind of thing and every day they decide what bonds to buy and what bonds to sell what companies and countries to lend to and what companies and countries to not lend to to stop lending to and like with any lender bond traders worry about lending more money to a borrower who is already borrowing a lot because all that borrowing makes it more risky and so to compensate for that risk bond traders demand a higher interest rate. They stop lending until rates. Go up and this bond traders demanding higher interest rates when the government is borrowing more money. This is the scenario that everyone was so worried about people. Were so afraid of this that there was even a special term for the bond traders. Who do this bond vigilantes. Bill clinton has convinced. The bond vigilantes are scary and in fact he decides the us needs to bring the deficit down. He decides to build a whole economic plan around getting rid of the deficit. One of the economists he brought in to make that happen was jason and a central argument. That we made was if you do this. It will lower interest rates and interest rates are lower will have more investment and more economic growth and sort of amazingly. All of this happened. They did raise taxes and cut spending and get the deficit down. In fact by the end of the clinton administration the deficit felt all the way to zero. And what came next was sort of a golden moment for the economy in silicon valley. There was the dot com boom but really the whole economy was doing great businesses of all kinds. Were doing well. Ordinary workers were getting breezes lower deficits lead to lower interest rates which led to more investment. And that was good for basically everybody. The system was working. The next big moment in the story comes right after the financial crisis of two thousand eight and this is the moment when everything is about to change when this big shift in the way the world works is about to happen but nobody quite nosy yet. Brock obama has just been elected. President obama brings in clinton's guy. Jason furman as one of his economic advisors and ferment. Goes into this meeting to discuss. How big of a stimulus. Bill obama should push for as he takes office. We met with the president-elect december sixteenth two thousand eight and we're all crowded together in a conference room. I think it was in a law firm in chicago and he wanted it to be big. He wanted to be bold but there was this worry. The stimulus was going to be funded with deficit. Spending government was going to borrow the money. And some of obama's own economic advisers worried that borrowing and spending too much money might actually harm the economy for that classic reason
Fed Holds Policy Steady as Economy Stumbles
"Learn a bit more about what we got from the Fed, joining us. Kathleen Hays, Global economics and policy editor at Bloomberg News. She's here in our New York City bureau, along with Dave Wilson, stock cetera Bloomberg News on the remote access from New Jersey. So Kathleen, I feel like steady, she goes, We know pretty much what we expected from the Fed what we expected, and that's going to be very reassuring to the markets. Because there has been there been comments made in the last say two or three months by a handful of Fed officials that depending on the economy, they could see that that's starting to taper its bond purchases in the second half of this year. So what they said today I think, Let me grab another headline here. That is very important. The Fed repeats. His policy statement that it's buys its its bond buys will continue until quote substantial further progress and I'll add to that headline has been made because this is language. They've added recently to underscore that they want to see not just the moderating economy and job market they mentioned which were what you were just reading from the headlines. They want to see not just inflation, starting to move higher. They want to see inflation at 2% and above. They want to see Ah lot better job growth. They want to see claims coming down and Kathleen. They're willing to let it run a little bit of hot. We've heard this a lot from Jay Powell and company that because because they want to see and make sure that the economy gets back on a firm, two things here number one you got left around. Hot, I think is the idea to ever even have a chance in wrecked and you know where. To get inflation above 2% H e double toothpicks is there you go, baby. And then the second thing is, you know something they even added. It's a small thing, but it means a lot. I think when they said that the economy's path will depend significantly, they said, not just on the crown of fire itself, but also on progress with inoculations. That's another word for vaccinations, right? So they're very hopeful as many people are that the vaccine rollout will go quickly. When I spoke to Lord investors, President Clinton Kansas City Fed A couple Excuse me. Cleveland Fed Sorry, Loretta story yesterday on straight there you go on now two powerful women there don't want that. They're fed banks mixed up. But she said she thinks by the third quarter will have not full vaccination, but so much of the population will have it that that's why we're going to start seeing a really strong rebound. To the economy at the press conference, J pal, That's where two be listening for I think one more interesting thing I've been thinking about the last couple of days. If we start seeing that strong rebound, and there's all this like another, maybe $2 trillion of stimulus being debated, you know, one of you will have in the middle here is Janet Yellen and she has said Right now, you gotta act big. You gotta act now. But I think this is a very interesting question that Republicans will probably raise. Look over getting ready for a big rebound. Do we really need to spend that much now? I hope that's another question. A J. Pollock. It's asked today

No AAPI Cabinet Secretary!? (With Madalene Mielke)
"Madly milk. Welcome back to the motto. Majority podcast today. Thanks so much. Appreciate having a having having you have me. Yeah absolutely well. We love our previous conversation back in episode. One one to talking about your career your life story from the very beginning you know your political career dating back to al gore's presidential campaign. I believe so. I encourage everybody to listen to episode one until after this episode to get to know your personal story a little bit better but today we are going to focus on. You know some current topics. Niger say before we get into that. You are the president and ceo of the organization. Asian pacific american institute for congressional studies or apec. Could you give us a quick overview of the mission and the goal of this organization. You're leading which. I think actually is a good background and foundation for other stuff. We're gonna talk about later on in this interview. Well absolutely so apex down at twenty. Six years ago by former secretary norm annetta when he was a member of congress. He founded it alongside on the congressional asian pacific american caucus k. pack which comprise of the api members of the us house and senate and so apex mission is to increase a representation at all levels of government From community service to elected office and have them participate at all levels of the electoral process. Gotcha so it's interesting that you mention norman. Mineta who i think is one of the first cabinet secretaries of asia-american designed in our country. I don't know the first night check on that. The first right okay. So yeah. I think he was transportation secretary. He was actually commerce. Secretary and president clinton's administration got it and then went to transportation under the bush administration. Gotcha gotcha he has this. Unique history of serving the first cabinet secretary serving both administrations both parties administrations. And really i think started in important. I guess trend of representation that is about to end with the incoming biden administration. And we're talking about as we are a few days before job and becomes president to be inaugurated. This will be the first time in close more than twenty years that they will not be in asia. American or pacific islander as a cabinet secretary in an administration whether it's democrat or republican for the first time. And you as the leader of a pack which is a nonprofit has spoken out quite a bit about a lack of representation. Could you share with us. What is your view of what is about to happen with this. Lack of representation in the incoming administration sure dodge. Obviously we have an incoming vice president. Who is a pi asian american. She south asian descent black vice president-elect kamla harris and also to cabinet level positions. They don't head up an executive department of which there are fifteen. And that's catherine tie. Vr and near attendant. You know the to cabinet. Level positions obviously have a lot of influence and i will just use the word sides the congressional hispanic caucus and the congressional black caucus as well as k. Pack when they sent a joint letter over a hundred and fifteen members of congress to the by the administration saying close to equal equal. And so that is that those were their words and so And so you know. I cabinet secretary heads of an executive department. And there's only fifteen of them and so when you think about that fifteen how's that diversity including asian americans. It doesn't because there isn't one of the fifteen a. I applaud the administration for their work in trying to expand diversity in having openly. Lgbtq individual leading agency And native american woman of half of the cabinet will be women so all those great things. So if you wanted to find diversity and not include asians in the fifteen than i need to ask you. What is your definition of diversity. Because we seem we've seen this play out and other places where the state of washington. I think they're department of education. Basically categorized asian americans as white so obviously a different definition of diversity.

My phd took me to the united states. And it allowed me to myself. It allowed me to be exactly who. I wanted the way i wanted another thing. That was very crucial. And i didn't mention it. Before was the latino movement in mexico philanthropy and social movements are not easy to happen and over here. I just saw immediately. What was happening.

Pompeo Attempts To Cement Trump's Legacy In Israel Ahead Of A Biden Presidency
"Workers at the Capitol are dressing up the West Front for Joe Biden's inauguration, members of the current administration are rushing to cement Donald Trump's policies in place. Secretary of state Mike Pompeo was in the Middle East. This past week, he unveiled new pro Israel policies that could be hard for an incoming Biden administration to undo NPR's Daniel Estrin reports from Jerusalem. Compelled, became the first secretary of state to visit an Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank. He had lunch at a winery that named one of its wines, Pompeo. The U. S used to take a dim view of settlements, seeing their growth as an obstacle to peace because they take up land Palestinians claim for an independent state. But Pompeo says Israel has a right to settle the land featured in the Bible for a long time State Department. Took the wrong view of settlements. It took of you that didn't recognize the history of this special place. Pompeo announced a new policy favoring the winery He visited products made in West Bank settlements must be labeled made in Israel when shipped to the U. S. A ghetto front with peace now and Israeli group against Settlements says this could make it hard for consumers who don't want to support settlements if people want to boycott Or not to participate in the occupation. They can do it by not buying products from settlements. This is going to be labors that his friends and they cannot know if it's from occupied territories. Then. Boyce is being revealed all of Israel. Pompeo announced another new policy last week. Today. I want to make one announcement with respect to a decision by the State Department that we will regard The global any Israel BDS campaign as anti Semetic BDS has boycott divestment and sanctions, a movement that calls to boycott Israel because of its policies toward Palestinians. Some Israel supporters see it as a threat because some boycotters oppose Israel itself as a Jewish state, But boycott activists say it's a non violent form of protest. So why unveil these new policies right before Biden takes over. Dead. Ravi V. And Israeli settler leader close to the Trump administration says Pompeo is playing chess with Biden one step before Checkmate. It's putting buy them some sort of check. If you really reversed his decision that were done by the constant ministrations. You might have to confront criticism. As to why doing it. Other administrations have taken steps on Israeli Palestinian policy right before leaving office, like when President Obama allowed the United Nations Security Council resolution condemning Israel's settlements. Scott Lisinski was an adviser for the Obama administration. President Clinton himself using his presidential transition, trying to move Middle East peace forward George Shultz at the end of the Reagan presidency. Negotiating a very careful formal diplomatic dialogue, the first ever between American and Palestinian leaders. These are examples of diplomatic opportunism. Palestinian leaders see this as their opportunity to make nice with Biden. They've agreed to resume security and economic ties with Israel after a six month stand still, and they say they might change a practice, Democrats criticized paying stipends to Palestinians convicted of attacking Israelis. Many Palestinians criticized the gestures like former Minister Nabil Armor in this video he posted. He had the infertile into Paloma that America, he says. Why give more ground before Biden enters office, while Israel is taking advantage of this time to announce more settlement construction. Israel got another boost yesterday with news that the U. S. Justice Department decided not to renew restrictions on the parole of former U. S intelligence analyst Jonathan Pollard. He was convicted of espionage for giving classified U. S documents to Israel and is now expected to move to Israel where he has popular support.

They hear about a president in the here about Someone they're supposed to look up to see as a leader and there there's a lot of respect for the presidency that we try to instill in them and to have someone who has denigrated that as president in herve daily formative years has been really challenging. I mean it's one thing to be To have someone attack your community writ large. It's another thing when that someone is the president of the united states and he is directly attacking you by name personally. How has how has that felt on a personal level you know. I have gotten accustomed to standing up to bullies in in my life and so on a personal level. It hasn't really impacted me. Besides having you know my my children be exposed to add and And you know for for the last two months of this election cycle waking up every single warning to text messages from my siblings. Asking if i was safe because he chose to speak about me at every single rally. Didn't really matter where he was sometimes multiple times in a day as he had held his klan rallies throughout the country. And and you know. And i and i thought a lot about in the last two years that attack on me has met for the people who see themselves in me Whether it is you know. Muslims whether it is a black woman whether it is immigrants refugees People who are aspiring to be leaderless in in our country many. I want to live in an inclusive society and wants to be part of creating progress for our country And it's it's really something to to analyze and to understand and to to reckon with. Because as i as i said you know when i first came to the united states in middle school i remember getting a letter of recognition from then president clinton and i remember you know reading this this ladder and i wrote about it in my book. My father sort of was really proud of this letter at the time. I didn't really care much about you. Know who was president or politics That to my father. It was an acceptance of our existence in this country. It was sort of another welcoming letter welcoming ladder when you arrive here as a refugee and you know that that is what a president is supposed to be representative of. They are a leader of the nation. They are supposed to make everybody feel as if they are their president and to have now had four years of a president who has occupied. The white house was not seen himself as the leader of all of the people in this country who is not extended a welcoming hand every single person Is you know. Really sad. And sing. And disheartening And the day that it was announced that he lost his reelection. I tweet it to my now. Deceased father who passed away because of covert complications are that the president did not relieve in. Acknowledge that you know that we did it and he will no longer be president of the united states and the country that he loved Will hopefully come back to being a pekan. Oh hope An inclusive country that understands that There is strength in our diversity and And then there are better days ahead of us

"With President Clinton was probably the most instructive one for the Trump administration here because in that case the North Koreans agreed to stop producing nuclear material. And then secretly went off on other pathway to go do it and got off doing it. And I think that President Trump recognize that he didn't want to be the president who got a second time with that. With a. So I think he's given the benefit of the doubt. We'll see what happens next think when you walk away shows some strength because you didn't apply amenable way. Hey, listen to work now to go. Yeah. I guess. I gave you the courtesy and the respect, and I gave you the world stage. But what Kim Jong UN wants is money. Needs money. He needs money to curry political favor to make sure that he solidifies his position as leader of the country because if he gives up his nukes, and he has no money he has nothing out. But now if he if he has no money he's really pinched and squeezed, and you know, it's it's it's a very interesting situation. It's not the worst case scenario, but it's far from the best case scenario. I don't like to judge people. But I will I am hoping that he somehow get some type of fitness routine. He can barely walk. He's thirty five years old. Yeah. That's smokes. Like, chimney and eats Swiss cheese. He he developed a taste for Swiss cheese while he was at Switzerland, Switzerland. Yeah. You might as well. That's fine. We have you ever had it Switzerland make with wine, and then you drink the same wine at dinner, which helps you break down the cheese. And let me see do you eat it with this? Absolutely. That's spread the the butter on that on the bread that you dip into this wish cheese. And then you drink the wine, and you're so drunk, you cut your own tongue. That's why I always stick to the spoon. Why is it that Bocquet Margaret? So a couple of things the Michael Cohen thing is going on at the same time. We got things we could dive into that. But I want to get your take on this congresswoman to leave decides. Okay. By the way, can I just say something really quick before we switch to I hope for going just very quickly Democrats thought that they were really screwing the president by holding. The Michael Cohen hearings that the open testimony the day of the North Korea summit. But the fact that Michael Cohen stuff went on and North Korea kind of fizzled the film, it would've been a much bigger without coincides. Kind of a favorites the president, right? It's the good news. Is we focus on the president's financing fantastic. Here's a repeated to Leib somewhat controversial on the house oversight committee her question to Mark meadows. I should tell you that Mark meadows wanted to push back on the claim that the president's racist. Because Michael Cohen says he's heard him say racial things. So they brought out. Lynn, Pat, new I actually know an interview today and she's been working for the Trump family for a couple of decades. And now is the second highest position in in HUD, cut thirty six. I think many of us learned that the criminal conduct and activity that we all know of President Trump's. Thirty four Eric and just blame that on Kennedy. If you can always pushing buttons in my bad, how dare I read face. Thanks Kennedy could cover someone has a person of color, a black person working for them does not mean, they aren't racist. The fact that someone would actually use a prop a black woman in this chamber in this committee is alone. Racists in itself. Really? We'll Mark meadows is the one that has been called a racist. Any fired back five I asked someone who is a personal friend of the the Trump family who is worked for him. Who knows this particular individual, the she's coming in to be a prop? It's racist to suggest that I asked her to come in here for that reason. No, MR chairman, I do not call Mr. medals racist. I am trying. Donald a person of color, Mr Chairman, just to express myself and how I felt at that moment. So it went back within comings and finally refereed and just listen, Mark as one of my favorite guys here. I'm best friends with them. Casiano Elijah Cummings is actually black and Mark meadows says as actually white collar. So I know so you're no help and this whole segment now. Right. So in the end, I'm astounded, by the way, we throw the word racist or and everybody's racist. Right. Bernie Sanders the president racist. There's no pullback we have Akeem Jeffrey safety presents a race. Everybody knows racist. They call them head of the the grand wizard. Have the KKK was this guy goes, oh, you're the president's a racist Ellen patent says he doesn't see call. He said that this morning. So Mark meadows says I've people in my family or people of color. I take personal offense set. I'm amazed L everything comes down to race these days. Yeah. It's it's really cheap. And and it's very dangerous to cheapen something that is that critical and Elijah Cummings understands that and Elijah Cummings lived through the civil rights era, and he saw violence and death and assassination and the brutality. The physics. Brutality of racism as the country comes apart at the seams. And that's not the same thing as Rashida to leave throwing words around to hurt people because every time you do that you cheapen it and you diminish its meaning. And that to me is unacceptable, especially for for someone who holds office. We're going to take a timeout and come back, and I want to get in trouble again. You're right. I shouldn't have used that term. And that was could be misconstrued. So I apologize. I won't use that again, we're going to step aside, and there'll be no timeouts, she's not need a time out. And we'll come back more of Kennedy. We're gonna find out what's on her show tonight on the FOX business network. And then we're going to talk about other stuff that interests us only. Great.

And I tell the story of their styles more style than substance. They both had the same aspirations for America governing in different times. I have a picture of the first meeting with President Obama the first time he's sitting at his desk is claim fires going and we're talking. There's nothing I'm desk. I I have a picture of three years later. There's nothing on the desk. And he was unbelievably meticulous. And I have his two lists that he gave me as my gift from twenty ten that had domestic administrative foreign extras, I have pictures of President Clinton is right after we had done the assault weapon ban. And I think. I forgot what other legislation it was. And it looks like just Matt kind of like your desk day. Chaos everywhere. But if you looked at President Clinton, there was actually pens coins that our military there were books that he was reading there were folders that was and if you knew him there was actually no order underneath that. Cats. Now, get another example, you know, my workout habits, I'm up at quite early in the morning etcetera. President Obama all them call no matter.

"One Sean toll-free telephone number eight days till election day, one week from tomorrow that was the president talking about the Pittsburgh city, gone synagogue shooter. We're letting getting to know a lot more about Robert Bowers, and who he is he was a very violent anti Semite. He was a huge critic of Donald Trump. In a lot of ways and the president, you know took heat for saying what that may be. And we've talked about this after school shootings and after other church shootings where the president said, well, maybe we need to have retired police military. It's a sad state of affairs. But as a line of defense, but that doesn't take away from the horror, and the vicious evil that took place here you look at the victims. I mean, it is heartbreaking to see the faces of those slain for their faith was the cover of the New York Post today. And as you read about the the lives of these people is one heartbreaking story after another sadly to we've watched the media do what they always do and that's rushed to blame. And pulling out all the stops to blame Donald Trump for the Pittsburgh massacre. When in fact, the prime minister of Israel, Ron Dermer, the ambassador of all said that the president's comments were welcomed and appreciated on every front. We'll get into all of this as we continue rose tenant, the host of and rose on rose unplugged and Pittsburgh PA long friend of the program and David shown civil liberties attorney criminal defense attorney. Thank you both for being here. You know, how much I love my friends in Pittsburgh rose. I'm very very sorry. Thoughts and prayers go to everybody the fact that it's been so viciously politicized. Within minutes makes me my stomach turn and those trying to cast blame against the president make this a campaign issue is just nauseating. It is Shannon. You're so loved in Pittsburgh as well. As soon as I heard this story, the news Saturday morning. I mean, my heart went out, and I was almost afraid to hear the list of victims their names because this community, it's such a lovely place. It's a very popular Pittsburgh neighborhood. I go there to shop and to dine. And in fact, my son told me just about a month ago. That's one of the the neighborhood. She was considering moving to so we we love that community. It's a tight knit community. They are very involved in so many aspects and not just their community, but the surrounding communities and as doubt, you know. Of course, I grew up with a girl whose cousin with the two brothers that perished on Saturday. But there were so many people that have done so many great things in this community in the Pittsburgh area. And it just it's heartbreaking. It really is to see that this happened. But as soon as I thought those things immediately, I got sick thinking that this is going to become political and it did. It's. Count the seconds. There's an interesting side note to this. And I'll throw this to David how democratic candidates increasingly turn against Israel, and our mutual friend, Alan Dershowitz, you know, had a pretty powerful column that he put out linking the the massacre to the democratic party's tolerance for antisemitism. Most recently, we saw Bill Clinton two seats down from Louis Farrakhan. I'd never ever get in a room with a vicious racist, anti Semite, like Louis Farrakhan or picture that emerged with Farrakhan. And Obama that was hidden from the public for eight years while he was president that existed that they had had a relationship. And if you look at some of the the most pro Israeli President, I think we have had since the the forty eight partition plan u n partition plan is is Donald Trump more recently, making Jerusalem, the capital of Israel, which so many other presidents had promised that never had the courage to do. Yeah. Any person who would suggest for a moment? The Donald Trump has an anti-semitic bone in his body is that of their mind looking at family et cetera. But you're absolutely right in what you pointed out, if you believe that words matter then it goes much further than just President Clinton sitting in a room with Mr. Farrakhan. There are pictures of President Clinton President Obama. Cory Booker shaking hands and smiling Farrakhan members of congress doing the same Linda Sarsour, another hater get an honorary degree at City College and honorary doctorate because they're bombing nation. More Klein with the press release about some of these kinds of things and listen this Linda Sarsour praises resume terrorists who felt any terrorists who killed two American college students. She's been praised by Kirsten gillibrand. She's been praised on. Fortunately, by Stacey Abrams is running for congress here in Georgia. Now is words matter than those things matter a great deal, it it should be expected when you normalize Israel bashing and the hatred of Jews. It should be expected the way Gershwin's put it. I thought was pretty powerful. He said they can't be any tolerance for antisemitism. And I agree. We we have to have zero tolerance policy. President Obama meets with barcon. Shame on him, President Clinton sits on a platform with Farrakhan. Shame on him Keith Ellison joins Farrakhan was one of the greatest purveyors of anti semitic eight. He's right. Just because he's black doesn't give him a pass for his anti semitism in any liberal who has any positive association with Farrakhan is is part of the problem, not the solution and just last week Farrakhan was making anti semitic statements, and it was only two months ago that Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and Bill Clinton are all sitting next to each other with Farrakhan at Aretha Franklin's funeral. I would not go to any funeral that. He was that. I'm sorry. I just you draw the line, and I'm trying to find may here too. There's something I'd like your listeners to know. Because I I noticed a couple of headlines today on Sunday. Hey, there was a letter. That was published any written by eleven members of a group called bend the arc and they have a Pittsburgh affiliate right here. And they sent a letter to the president just blaming him. They said that you yourself called the murderer evil that yesterday's violence is a direct combination of you're influence, and they said you're the past three ears. Your words and your policies have embodied this and Imboden death and the Shaun. What's interesting is I had so many messages and phone calls from my listeners today, they they pretty much agree first of all that bendy arches. So your listeners now is not Representative of the Pittsburgh Jewish community. They do not speak for them is what many of my listeners said these people are there, an obscure left-wing groups, very progressive Jews, and and they don't speak the Jewish community here in Pittsburgh. I've been told by many this morning. David go, Harry important, very important point. By the way. I wish they were obscure Peter beinart is a member of that group. That's an Israel Bashar and hater from start to finish. Reportedly. George Soros is grandson is a member of the group they purport to speak to this four is wonderful Pittsburgh community. I've been to the show. I was a guest of the rabbi there for a button. It's it's a wonderful place. They're not haters. They're not people who want to politicize anything and the president, by the way can't win for losing the guy who says those pipebombs around people claim he was follow President Trump this guy. The shooter the killer in Pittsburgh paints. President Trump he called him a globalist. There's no insult in that war world conservatives by and large mainstream. Conservatives David are the biggest supporters of Israel in this country. I've been friends with prime minister Netanyahu for twenty five years friends with a who'd Barack and and she won't Perez and others. You have broadcast from Israel. You've been a great friend of Israel. But you're one hundred percent, right and unfair it. There have been articles lately tire stream of the Democratic Party. Now that is a frankly, Israel haters, and let's not give a pass Alexandria Cossio. Cortes, these new people on the scene Palestinians the massacre. It's just not true. They're telling lies about Israel. And that's very very dangerous. If you believe words matter words matter this was the deadliest anti semitic attack in US history. The president also saying we will seek their destruction which I agree with. I gotta take a break. We'll come back more with rose tenant and David shown on the other side. Right. So our friends at Shamanee of done it again, if you look in the mirror. What do you see maybe a little bit of sag along your jaw line? Remember, Shamanee gets rid of bags and puffiness under your eyes. It's their number one bestselling product. You can't get it in any store and don't forget their sunspot. Correct.

In recent years claiming that he had been controlled by a microchip plant in this head. So I don't know left wing or right winger. No crazy person is it entirely possible that these bombs there were sent out to people could be such a person, or is it just reasonable in any phase of the imagination to jump to the conclusion that because there are a lot of left-wing targets here. People like Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and Eric Holder and President Obama and president of and President Clinton and secretary Clinton because those are targets apparently this attempt. It must be someone who's inspired by President Trump and President Trump is to blame that seems to me outrageous and unfair. You want to hear an example of it? Andrew Cuomo the governor of New York right after he gave a decent statement praising police praising the bomb. Then this the heated rhetoric, the toxic environment is part of this. Yes, we haven't done a full investigation. But if a suggestion of the pattern is that they are politically related, and I think that's a caution to all political officials elected officials candidates and Americans we can have political differences. We've always had political differences. That's what made America America. But let's have our political differences with civility. And let's void the hostility and the rhetoric and the rancor and the anger because we are at a boiling point. Okay. I think there are a lot of Americans who are a boiling point. And I agree with the general settle sentiment that it's better to have reasoned conversation. But for goodness sake. What a hypocrite. And why now and why is it that there was rice in which is deadly? That was delivered to President Trump at the beginning of this month, the same rice and was also delivered a General Mattis the secretary of defense. Did that get the same kind of attention here? There seems to be just as much damage that was done by that attack as this one. Namely, none. Or is there media? Manipulation. Going on with the coverage of this event. One eight hundred nine five five seventeen seventy six it seems to me that there is. The New York Times and their initial coverage of the attack on this Fox News station, and that was an attack with damaged property at least in one guy with a bullet in his chest. They said the shooting at the station comes almost four months. This is in the New York Times the day after the shooting of the station comes almost four months after a man's formed a newspaper in Annapolis Maryland and opened fire with a shotgun. The chilling attack killed five people and left the world of journalism reeling. President Trump condemned the newsroom shooting and offered his condolences, but he is often portrayed the news media as the enemy of the people after the shooting the publisher of the New York Times AJ shoals Berger said in a statement that he told the president in private meetings that quote his language was not just divisive. But increasingly dangerous in other words, what did that have to do with the newsroom shooting in Annapolis? Or the attack on Fox News..

"There's a wide range of, relevant Fully insight into so I don't, think we should be going ahead on. September fourth but the confirmation hearings Republicans they, told the Associated Press linking Cohen to Cavanaugh is not a good reason to delay this. Very legitimate question but not a legitimate position for them to take because they didn't raise, the same issues Justice briar was, appointed by President Clinton and President Clinton was already had a grand jury getting documents and papers from. Him and the committee went ahead and approved Justice Breyer and Justice, briar gone supreme court Eighty, nine to seven. Or something like that And so there's there's precedent to move ahead in a situation. That, isn't even similar to what we have now what do you think of the Democrats saying that having us hearing should be delayed No I don't think so. During, the nineteen nineties when there was an investigation with regard to the president I believe Justice. Briar move forward during that time so I don't think, there's precedent Earlier this week Cavanaugh seemed to secure a possible swing vote in the Senate from Susan Collins after discussing his views on Roe v Wade with her later in the day he met with.

"And what happens in the investigation that can star heads up the tangled relationship between and arkansas land deal the savings and loan and hillary rodham clinton's former law firm is again under scrutiny today it begins as an investigation of a land deal in the ozarks that's the whitewater affair but over time it morphs into something much larger much murkier and ultimately much seamier involving the sex life of the president of the united states bill clinton and in particular his relationship with a young white house intern named monica lewinsky san has confirmed that whitewater counsel kenneth starr has been granted permission to expand his investigation he will be looking into new allegations that president clinton had an affair with a former white house intern and then urged her to lie about it and suddenly for a young ambitious republican lawyer brad kavanagh it places him at the center of this enormous story it forces him to confront some of the biggest questions relating to the separation of power the right of president the right of investigators to hold a president subject to the law all of these questions are suddenly front and center for a lawyer still in his thirty s and what are kavanagh's specific contributions to stars approach to the prosecution of bill clinton well we know for one thing that brad kavanagh wrote a memo to ken starr before star and his team we're going to depose president clinton in this investigation and that memo's remarkable on a couple of grounds i it makes the case that star should not cut president clinton any slack it in fact says that president clinton should not be allowed off the hook unless he's a willing to resign his office or be willing to confess to perjury and issue a formal apology to ken starr and his team secondly it lays out a set of suggested questions for the prosecutors to ask president clinton and these questions are really remarkable in how explicit they are in how directly they go to to the nature of the sexual relationship between president clinton and monica lewinsky you know without getting into grisly detail they talk about the exchange of bodily fluids the use of cigars as a sex toy they leave very little to the imagination and certainly they go well beyond what any prosecutor had ever asked any sitting american president and ken starr was encouraged to ask them by brad kavanagh so it sounds like cavanaugh is counseling ken starr to go after president clinton in the most aggressive way possible that's right this is a warriors approach to the investigation it's a no holds barred approach that's designed to put the president off balance and to get right to the heart of the matter.

"President clinton's fundraising in the in connection with the ninety six election as i recall it i remember because everybody in federal law enforcement heard it that director freeh had surrendered his white house pass because he considered the president a criminal subject but that was all kind of noise in the background the one that i knew something about was the marc rich case and that gave me concerns i asked this partly because we we all live in an immediate university i don't know what your media diet is or has been but if you watch fox and things like it it's hard to be completely unaffected by the drumbeat about the clintons over the years and i think people would want to know if you approached your decisions about hillary clinton with a head completely clear of that i think by and large with respect to hillary clinton that yeah true yes because i didn't know much about her i never met her i read in the paper she was a hardworking senator who had been successful across the aisle which is the kind of thing that appeals to me philosophically and the reservations i had especially connected to the marc rich case she had no connection to that i recall and so i don't remember approaching it with any kind of predisposition about then secretary clinton former senator clinton so let's go to one of the crucial episodes in your career at the fbi and obviously in this book on july fifth two thousand sixteen is fbi director you called an extraordinary press conference to describe in detail why there were no charges to bring in the clinton email investigation at that press conference clearing hillary clinton of criminal wrongdoing in email investigation you still criticized her behavior calling her handling of email extremely careless and as you describe in the book you thought about this phrasing a lot why did you bother at all why why not come out and say nothing to see here and go home the question we asked and i keep saying i this is a big team of very smart people who debated this and decided what to do said public trust if we just do.
