The American People See Right Through the Media's Treatment of Biden
"All right, I want to turn to this poll that just came out Americans, as I said, they get it. We get it. We've got a newly released poll that shows the American people really see through the media. And they see through how the media treats president Joe Biden. Effectively with kid gloves, right? Compared to how they treated former president Donald Trump, according to Rasmussen reports, the majority of Americans say, and I quote, the media does not question president Joe Biden as aggressively as they questioned former president Donald Trump. 54% of likely U.S. voters believe the news media are less aggressive in questioning Biden than they were Trump. Look, it's only 54% though. I mean, to me that to be like 95%, it is very clear that this media is quite biased. It's actually a big deal when they actually challenge him on things. Because they never seem to challenge him, and we've got all kinds of problems going on. In terms of our economy, in terms of the border, in terms of what we're going to continue to face with our economy. In terms of infant formula, that crisis that frankly, the administration should have been all over before it happened, or at least when it happened. Anyway, it seems that most Americans are wise to that. And it's important that we are, right? Because you have to be able to vote for the candidate that's going to offer the best opportunity in, well, November and also, again, in 2024, and if everyday Americans can see through the media as you know what, then I think that that's going to make a real
Biden Refuses to Enforce Law Preventing Protest Near SCOTUS Homes
"I mean, ladies and gentlemen, we are reaching a state of near anarchy right now in which the law of the land has become irrelevant protesters. They continue to gather outside the homes, the residences of our Supreme Court Justices, where they live with their families, and yet we got crickets on The White House. A better than crickets. The White House is actually all for these protests. Nina I remind them that it's actually against a lot of protests outside the home of Supreme Court Justice, I mean, look, hey, I'm all for you know. Freedom of speech. I am all for peaceful protests. But in this case, what's remarkable here is that we do have a law that says you can't protest outside the home of a Supreme Court Justice. And there was a reason for that, right? There's a reason for that because it's viewed as a form of intimidation and our Supreme Court Justices, they need to be above it all. They need to be above the politics once they're on the bench. And yet, our attorney general, Merrick Garland, he does nothing. Our president, Joe Biden, does nothing. It's in part because, well, I get it. They don't like the decision that the Supreme Court Justices have come to, that has been revealed thanks to the roe V wade weighed leak, but you see that doesn't matter. Not when we have laws on our books that are designed to prevent the protests outside the homes. In fact, new poll shows the majority of Americans, regardless of where they stand on the issue of roe V wade, they don't think this is a good idea. They don't think people should be protesting outside justice's homes, and yet again The White House is silent.
DNC Chair Jaime Harrison: Not Playing Fair Is a Good Road Map
"Because we're so awful, our side is so awful that we're not going to play fair and you got to hear the chairman of the Democrat National Committee agree with him. Let's talk about the fascists on the other side. So I hear that, but I do think there are a lot of people, because we were just talking about you and I, we consume 8 papers in the morning. We look at the minutiae of politics. And most Americans are not doing that. And there are still a lot of people who feel disconnected from the party or maybe even disappointed in the party fair or not. I want you to take a listen, we have Roland Martin on. At the beginning of the show. Brother ro ro is never shy about giving his opinion. So he had a lot to say about what he thinks Democrats should be doing. I want you to take a listen and get your thoughts. Sounds good. You've got to have president Joe Biden stop being scared of senator Joe Manchin and go make the argument in West Virginia and go to the red parts of Mississippi and Alabama and say, this is what we have done and these folks voted against it and this is how we have delivered. They've got to be willing to engage in war. You can not play fair with people who don't play fair. There are no rules. The other side has shown that they will do whatever is necessary in order to win so you've got to say America when they didn't care about you, we did. What are your thoughts? I felt like that was a good road map. Well, it is a good road map and rolling. I want you to know, I'm going to Kentucky and Arkansas. I'm going to be in Mississippi and Alabama. We're going to all across this country. The chairman of the DNC says on national television not playing fair is a good road map.

Will Hunter Biden Be Indicted?
"Who, you know, and respect has a new column up on Hunter Biden. Will president Joe Biden's son be indicted probably? Are you following this young judiciary committee? You know that Elon Musk bought a 9% stake in Twitter which suppressed the story along with Facebook. What do you make of the story? I'm following the story in the way you are and others are in the news. I read the story. Obviously, Hunter Biden is a very troubled man who is engaged in extremely shady business dealings for decades, trading on his family's name. Frankly, like his uncle Joe Biden's brother, James Biden as well. I don't have particular knowledge of the investigation inside of the Department of Justice, but I would not be surprised at all if Hunter Biden is indicted.
Biden Depletes Oil Reserves as Poll Numbers Tank
"So Trump blasts the depletion of the strategic oil reserve. I want you guys to know Trump that hadn't been filled in decades. Trump filled it up 593.6 million barrels of oil. Biden is going to deplete one third of that. That is only supposed to be used in case of emergencies, like in case of an emergency break the glass. Biden is doing that. Sadly, inflation and soaring rinse and the housing crisis continues under the Biden administration, but there's some good news and I want to bring you that good news from my headline Biden's poll numbers somehow keep getting worse praise God. So people aren't falling for it. You would think that at some point, president Joe Biden are president select Biden's poll numbers couldn't get any worse. So far, you would be wrong. And NBC News poll found that Biden is now at 40% approval. The lowest level of his presidency with 55% of people disapproving of his job performance
President Joe Biden to Propose New 20% Minimum Billionaire Tax
"Biden's last big economic initiative, the build back better $1 trillion boondoggle. Burned out like a falling star. And not entirely surprisingly, the Biden administration has cooked up a new tax proposal. Now, this tax proposal is interesting in that it seems to include a component of a wealth tax. Oh, what's a wealth tax? Well, a well tax should be distinguished from an income tax and an income tax your taxed on the money that you earn in a given year. And in a wealth tax, you are taxed on what you own, your taxed on what you have. Now, Biden isn't proposing exactly that people in this case rich people. The New York Times says billionaires. Here's the title of The New York Times article Biden to include minimum tax on billionaires in budget proposal. But the article is contradicted by the second paragraph, which I'm now reading to read, the tax would require that American households worth more than 100 million, pay a rate of at least 20% on their income, as well as unrealized gains in the value of their liquid assets, such as stocks and bonds, which can accumulate value for years, but are taxed only when they are sold. Now, first of all, somebody who makes a hundred $1 million, somebody who's worth a $100 million is not a billionaire. It's time to just lay out what a billionaire is. So you we all know what a $1 million is. It's one with 6 zeros. A thousand million makes a billion. A 100 million is one tenth of a billion. So The New York Times apparently doesn't know the difference, so you got this writer, Zola and all youngs. Zola and cattle young says no idea that a 100 million is one tenth. So he goes Biden to include minimum tax on billionaires. It's the fortify the democratic rhetoric. We're going after the billionaires. They can't really say we're going after the millionaires because too many American families, including a lot of democratic families, are millionaires, including by the way, families like Bernie Sanders.

All Republican Senators Except Rand Paul Express Concern on Iran Deal
"All Republican senators except Rand Paul express opposition to looming Iran This is now the media The senators vowed to force Senate votes on any attempts to withdraw terrorism related sanctions on Iran From the Jewish side All Republican senators but one senator Rand Paul joined a statement to president Joe Biden on Monday expressing opposition to a renewed nuclear agreement with Iran which has yet to be finalized and voted to oppose any attempts to withdraw terrorism sanctions Terrorism sanctions Be every indication the Biden administration appears to have given away the store the statement reads The administration appears to have agreed to lift sanctions that were not even placed on Iran for its nuclear activities in the first place but instead because of its ongoing support for terrorism and its gross abuses of human rights The senators added that they plan to force Senate votes on any attempts to withdraw terrorism related sanctions on Iran and will seek to reimpose them The senators also accused the administration of failing to adequately consult with Congress about the deal and said the administration is thus far refused to commit the congressional review of the deal Either it's a treaty or under the terms of the Iran nuclear agreement review act The signatories claim that the nuclear restrictions in the new agreement will also be less stringent than in the original 2015 deal Make a much more difficult for the U.S. to reach a longer and stronger follow on deal which administration officials have set as their goal
"president joe biden" Discussed on ToddCast Podcast with Todd Starnes
"All you have to do is ask and I'm easy like that. I will thank you. I was just like I said, curious as to how that's done because I do know a lot of people who are interested in doing that. And that is one of the great things about the service is that it is kind of like a mash up of Facebook and Twitter because you have more characters than you do on Twitter. Which is great. But yet it's also a timeline like Twitter at the same time. So it's like a mash up of the two and it really has grown in leaps and bounds. So I really urge people who are interested in having as we were just talking about. I have more than one outlet because I can't say certain things on Twitter or on Facebook, but I know I can say them on getter. Because it's not I'm not advocating violence or anything like that. I'm just asking questions that I think people should be allowed to ask, you know, regarding even in COVID or things like that or studies that come out that if you put it on one of those other platforms, you're going to get censored. Well, exactly. And that's the main thing that we go back to is that we oppose political discrimination. We oppose these big tech companies picking winners and losers just because of your political ideology. And that's really our ideological north star that we have is making sure how do we provide people that safe space to talk politics and again, you can come from the left or the right, or maybe you don't even want to talk politics. Maybe just want to talk about the big game this weekend. By the way, I do like the Bengals, take the points. If you get the chance, not that I'm paying any attention to it or have any skin in the game, but that would be my recommendation. But there will be people talking about football, certainly my pictures of my golden doodle get posted quite a bit. So it doesn't have to be all politics and we're actually one of the things we're really working to do is to broaden out and add more people from sports and entertainment. So we're actually just signed a contract to partner up with some German comedians, which first thing I said is I didn't tell anyone from Germany was funny. So this is I got to tune in to watch this myself granted. I don't think my fair limited German will get me far, but hopefully someone can tell me what they're saying. But we're also looking to team up on everything from UFC fighters from Brazil to sumo wrestlers from Japan. All sorts of different partnerships in team ups that we're looking at here. We actually have about a dozen MMA fighters that are currently on the platform. And looking to add more and of course a couple of folks in the NBA. So I think that's a really exciting things to come. But you beat me to the joke about the Germans, although I do speak German because I grew up speaking German. But the big joke is I'm glad you're having comedians from Germany on because they're known for their humor. The jokes write themselves on that one. They really do. That was the first time it was for both me. I was like, hey, I don't know anyone in Germany was funny and I was the only one laughing on the call, but I should that was enough of the laugh for me, but apparently they're hilarious and look forward to getting them on board. And even have some former football players live in the UK and it's just it's so fun that every day there's somebody new who joins in our country teams that will tell me if this person is huge because they did the following and I'm like, wait, this is like a four time Olympic athlete played goalie in the World Cup and these huge names, I believe it was the goalie from the World Cup that we added. I believe it was from Brazil and it's just it's so exciting that these big names that are huge in their respective countries and communities. And even as we talk about the live stream that you referenced I mean some Rubik people would be Steve Bannon or diamond and silk or Brandon straka actually had a really powerful live stream that he did yesterday. Dinesh d'souza. So it's exciting to just look down the list. I get these metrics reports every day of the top live streams and see some of the exciting names and some of the names I know and some I don't and I'm looking forward to watching as many of them as possible. Yeah. And dinesh has been a prolific poster since day one. It really has. He's a machine. He is, he truly is. I wish I had his people, because I need people at this point in the game. With all this social media, I need people. So if you can hook me up with people that would be great. No, I appreciate it, Jason Miller, CEO of getter on the patriot mobile news maker line. If you have not joined, I'm telling you you want to get in before someone else gets your name or the name that you want. But that may be already taken because so many people have joined. And it is not it is branching out from politics. I can tell you from being on it every day that I am seeing more pictures of things that aren't political, which is nice to see it branching out to more of a common usage the way you see a lot on Facebook and Twitter. And it's easy to use too, which is also very, very important for old people like me. So Jason Miller, thank you so much. Have a fantastic weekend to keep up the good work. I can't wait to see what's coming next. All right. Okay, so I totally lied, I can't take your call. Sorry about that. It's been so much fun sitting here in the Liberty University studio sitting in for time. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. Thank you to grace thank you to Kyle for helping me do it.

And we've launched our live streaming, which is really popular and a lot of attention in fact, we had a million people watch president Trump's speech in Arizona via getter and we had about 700,000 to watch president Trump's speech from Conroe Texas on getter. So it's huge numbers that are watching it. We're again last week and it was the Super Bowl Saturday of French politics with Eric zoom or marine le pen and all the different French presidential candidates who had events that were streamed on getter. But we have coming up next week. We're going to launch a vision, which is our short video competitor to TikTok or Instagram. And then this summer, that's when we launched get her pay are two coin crypto ecosystem. It's really going to revolutionize, I think, how people are looking at digital commerce and it's going to be pretty exciting. Wow, I don't even understand that. I don't even understand what that is, but it sounds exciting and I want to know about it. Yes. And so what we're doing is there are a number of different payment platforms, whether it's Apple Pay or Google pay or Samsung pay and of course I could rattle off a whole bunch of others. But what we're incorporating into it is the cryptocurrency element to allow people to be able to buy crypto and do things like peer to peer lending and kind of the decentralized finance and all these cool ways to use blockchain in a way that kind of challenges the institutional norms of lending, but we're also going to have two coins both a stablecoin and a fluctuating coin. Now, the fluctuating coin, there's really not much of any I guess government regulation that goes into that. The stablecoin a little bit more complicated. That's what Facebook was throwing their hands up and why they walked away from it. We believe that we can get it done. So we can have this two coined environment. And I think there are a lot of people very quite frankly just say, you know what, I've kind of always wanted to check out some of the cryptocurrency and the marketplace that different people have, but haven't really found a group that I felt comfortable doing with or I really trusted. We hope that we'll give people that experience. That is so interesting. Now, I'm also interested in because I've seen on get her because I'm on there all the time. All this live streaming that you're talking about. So I've been wondering how do you do that? Because I've started a podcast. And we do it every Thursday night. And when I do it, it doesn't give me the option of streaming on getter. It gives me Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, I think rumbles on there, but getter is not on there as an option to share it with. So how has that done? Is that a specific, something that you do and just do it on getter separate from everything else? Yeah, great question. So if you're doing it from mobile, which I'll confirm that you have that set up right now to be able to do it from either mobile or from if you're doing it from say a camera or from a PC Mac or a PC. If you're doing it on your mobile, you literally, it is three taps of a button and you're going live. It's literally that's it. If you're doing it from and I'm going to double check right now and make sure that you're set up for that. We're still technically in our beta testing, what I mean by that is avar 4.7 million people. I think we have about 2000 people who are up and going with live streaming. The reason being is because we're continuing to go through and there are just a lot of little things to fix and update, make sure as we open it up to everybody. Goes off the chain. But with regard to I get it. If you're doing it from your computer, then it's a simple we do something like a StreamYard or something of that nature. That's what I'm using. I'm using literally just take a couple clicks of the button. I'll make sure you're set up for that route. Yeah, I was just curious. I don't expect anything special I didn't realize it was beta test. I just see all these people doing it. And we've launched this podcast on. Mary Walter radio, the podcast, check it out..

"Ahead. How is it affecting you? Yeah, well, me and my dad on a pool point in business. And since I guess about in the last two years, we used to buy 50 pound bucket of flooring tablets for about 70 bucks and that same bucket now is about a $180. And yes, on top of fuel prices and everything else too. That's just one thing. Hold on. That's a crazy increase, but now is that chemical not made in the United States does it come from elsewhere? It's made in the United States. They blamed it on a chemical plant that burned down last year and they said one just burned down recently, but that's the only ones making them. So they're supply is short and that's part of the supply chain issue too. Well, don't worry, Pete Buttigieg is on it. We've got Pete Buttigieg solving that. So don't worry about it. We better get in a different business. Yeah, Pete Buttigieg is like the guy whose plan for cleaning his driveway in the sidewalks is he's just gonna wait for it to melt. Everybody's got that neighbor. Yeah. Right. That's right. They were so out there in our face. So now do you pass that cost on to the customer? You have to, right? We have to and we just went up on all of our prices and we've since lost a couple of customers because of it because I can't pay that and a few of them are fixed incomes and I just can't do it. Well, let me just let me just tell you everyone's on a fixed income. I hate when people say people are on a fixed income. We're all on a fixed income because even if you're not a senior, I don't know of a boss that says, oh, your taxes went up sure. Let me pay you more. That doesn't happen. Right. So everybody's on a fixed income. My taxes go up, my boss looks at me and goes, okay. So did mine. What do you expect me to do? I'm not paying you more. That's just the way it is. But I wonder, now when people leave you, are they going to a company that's less expensive or are they doing it themselves? They're probably going to end up doing it themselves. They'll probably call us back once they see the prices. But yeah. They just don't see that everything's going up so high. But well, I appreciate you sharing that Benjamin. I got to run, but thank you for sharing that. I don't mean to cut you short. I apologize. But Jason Miller, the CEO of getter is now with us. We were talking a little bit about social media. Thank you for joining us. It's always good to talk to you. Mary, could be back on with you. So first of all, congratulations because you have just grown in leaps and bounds thank Marjorie Taylor Greene. And Joe Rogan, the big one. I mean, my goodness, how many people did you add with Joe Rogan coming over? Well, great question. So we added about 1.7 million people over the month of January in the first week of February. Joe Rogan, Tucker Carlson. I tell you Tommy Robinson in the UK released a brand new video that got us a lot of attention. We've been growing in the U.S. and all over the world. It's really been exciting to see. So we grew by about 50% just in the one month or about in the first 5 weeks of 2022. And by the way, I'll link to the party. I had my getter account before I was one of the early ones you could get it before it went live. I did, that was me. I was there. So as far as I'm concerned, they are all just followers. Safe to say. Why haven't the other social media companies come after you the way they went after parler? You know, I think a couple of the reasons. One, I think we've taken a pretty serious approach to moderation. I think we have both a proactive and robust plan where we make sure that we guarantee your political free speech, but we're also going to make sure that we keep this site safe from things such as ISIS or pornography or child predators or people who want to come on and spew say racial or religious epithets. So we allow people a lot of leeway way much more than say Twitter, Facebook or any of these accounts are going through an exercise in political discrimination to pick winners and losers. And I think we're parlor, I think, have their challenge initially, is they were relying I think too heavily on the community policing and the problem is that when you start getting ambassador amounts of activity, you simply can't scale to keep up with it in the same way. So we use both an AI and artificial intelligence as well as human moderators. And we do have our own group of about a thousand volunteers to help. But that's all just to supplement what's already going on. So I think it's that, I think we've taken a serious approach to that, but also too, we've made sure to, I think we've had a great inviting platform that really makes it where people are wanting to come and check it out..

"Now on another note. And I'm going to throw this in here. We were just talking off the air. About things that like your parents lied to you about. And we thought it would be fun to just have a discussion and I don't know when I'm going to be back on this show, so I'm like, let's just throw it in here. When you call up, I'd love to know when you chime in. Was there anything your parents lied to you about that you later found out wasn't true? One of the things my parents lied to lied to us about. And I'm the oldest, so they really lied to me more than my brothers and then threatened to kill me if I told them the truth. So when I was a kid, my father had me convinced that if I did anything wrong, if a parent gave the principal permission to spank their child, that the principal could spank their child. Because I was always like, they can't touch me. They're not allowed to do anything. It's illegal for them to touch me. Here I am in fourth grade. They can't spank me. I rode that pony. My father played that game all the way through elementary school all the way through 6th grade. I lived in fear because I thought that my parents had written a note to the principle to tell the principle that it was okay to spank me if I did anything wrong. And there were tales of he had wooden paddles in his office and the whole 9 yards. Total lie, none of it sure. None of it true. And I bought it hook line and sinker. But when I look back on it, I was a little annoyed at the time. But when I look back on it, I'm like, that was kind of brilliant. I was actually kind of brilliant. It's a great way to keep your kid in line. So my parents did that a lot. My parents lied to us quite a bit about certain things in order to keep us in line. You know, how many kids were told you can't go swimming for an hour after you eat. That's just because mom didn't want to have to watch you. She wanted to sit, she wanted to have something to eat. She wanted to eat in peace and quiet. I'm sorry it hasn't been an hour yet. You have to sit here, go play in the sand with your brother. And it worked. We thought that was gospel. How many of us thought that that was gospel, you'll get it, you'll get a stomach ache, and you'll die. You'll get a cramp. You're going to get a cramp in the water and you're going to drown. So you can't go in the ocean just yet, you have to wait. They're like, ah, okay. We bought it hook line and sinker. It's a fallacy. You're going to get a cramp. Mom just wanted to sit and eat her lunch a piece without you could play it in a bugner or having to sit there and watch the ocean. Instead of instead of being able to eat your lunch or read her book or whatever it was. 844-747-8868. So let's talk about your wallet and if you want to add a fun story about something that your parents lied to you about it when you were a kid and you bought it and you look back on it now and you're like, either you're annoyed about it, you don't think it was very, very smart thing to do or it wasn't fair, or like me. You look back on it and go, that was brilliant. I totally get it now. As an adult, I totally understand why you did that. I want to hear your stories.

"Inflation. The parties for the big game coming up. The game that a lot of people have these parties, which is why the day after a lot of people call out of work. 14% more expensive this year than last year. 14 percent. Now it depends on what you serve if you're gonna have like chicken wings and hamburgers and things like that. The cost of meat is what's driving a lot of this. 14% more. You have to see it when you go to the grocery store. And the other thing they're doing is the price is going up, but the packaging is getting smaller, right? So not only are you paying more but you're getting less. And I told this story on the air the other day last week, I went to go get this pizza. So this pie, there's a pizzeria that came in from Brooklyn. And they make this pie that is a spinach artichoke cream pie. And it's thick, like the first time our friends brought it over from this new pizzeria. They brought one pie for the four of us. And I think we had like 5 pounds and it's super thick with this cheese and you can eat just a couple pieces. So one pie one large for four people was more than enough, and we had some leftover because it was so fully in the stimulant it was amazing. And it was Randy like 20 $3 somewhere in that range. Which is a little pricey, but it was amazing and you can only eat it a couple times a year. So I was going to be going by the place because luckily it is not close. So I was going to be going by. So I called ahead and I ordered the pie. I pick it up and I'm like, wow, it's awful, late. All right. And it was $28. The price had got up $5. $5 for a pizza. I was like, oh, and I understand the costs are going up, I get it. $5. And we get to pay home and I look at I open it up, my husband's like, look at this. It was thin. There was barely any topping on it. There was barely any cheese sauce on it. It was sad looking. It was very sad, especially for almost $30, $28, having gone up, I'm paying $5 more. And I got like half of what the pie was before. So not only are the prices going up, but they're cutting back on what they're giving you. And I get it. I understand it. It's hard for these places to stay to make ends meet especially after being shut down some of these places for a year. I understand it. But I only have so much money. So I have less money too. 844-747-8868. Most women in this survey. Said that most of them to educate themselves on how to handle finances turned to social media. There you go. Their family and or online media such financial news websites. Most women said that noted an absence of credit card debt as the most important requirement to be financially comfortable. I can't have credit card debt hanging over me. That is so true. That is so true. The majority men though said that they had to own a home in order to feel financially comfortable. On average respondents said they felt they needed an average of $686 of disposable income per month to feel financially comfortable. Some curious to see where your financial plan is. I'm curious to see how inflation is affecting you. And the prices that you're starting to see, are you cutting back anywhere? We're not getting to $30 pizza anymore. That's just not happening. And my husband's like, look, next time you go by, which will be sometime in the summer. Next time you go by, we'll try it again. We'll give them one more shot. If it's still, if it's gone up more, or if it's crummy as it is this time, is disappointing as it was this time, then we're just not getting it anywhere. We're writing it off. So that's what we're doing. We're definitely cutting back on things. I get the products from the store for a recipe for something and I need a pound. And it's only 14 ounces. It's not 16 ounces. They've made it cut a little bit. So now I gotta buy two in order to get what I need, the amount that I need, or it's even less, it's 12 ounces. You have to buy more in order to get what you want and then you have leftover, but that's how they're cutting costs. So hopefully you don't notice. And that's never going to go back. They're never going to go back to a full pound in the packaging. They're going to recoup their losses. They're going to make more money off of it if prices ever do go down. And then you add in the blockade, the convoy that's blocking off the access and the trade between the United States and Canada. And that drives up prices and scarcity even more is bare shelves. So if you want to share your story 844-747-8868.

"Unbelievable. No wonder everyone is leaving California. All right, coming up, Jason Miller, this CEO of getter right here on the Todd star and show. Life from the Liberty University studio in Memphis Tennessee. It's common sense conservative commentary from Todd starnes. That's right. I love this American ride and happy Friday I'm miri Walter sitting in for Todd starnes becoming up in half an hour. Sorry about that. We'll be Jason Miller, the CEO of getter. He will be joining us and you don't want to miss. I'm telling if you're not on get her. If you're on Twitter, that's my but getter is a little bit more free speech than Twitter and there are a lot of people over at get her a lot of people have come over to that platform and I like it. I like it or so. And I'm not just saying that because Jason Miller is coming on. I'm just saying that because I really like it. There were others that I was on and I kind of fizzled out on. But not get her, I'm still there. So I want to do two things here. The first thing I want to talk about is 7 appalled that says 7 in ten Americans say they're living paycheck to paycheck. And it's a new study. It's this recent survey of 2000 over 2000 adults and they found that 63% don't see themselves reaching a level of financial security that will allow them to live the lifestyle they want. It depends on how old you are when you ask them that question because as you get older, your idea of the lifestyle, you're going to lead definitely comes more into focus, okay? The lifestyle I'm leading now versus the lifestyle I thought it was going to lead like when I got out of college and I'm in my 20s radically different. Because to be honest with you, I didn't see this coming at all. I think most people are like that. You just don't see it coming, you're like, wow. And you look back in your 20s and you're like, I was so idealistic. Oh my God, what I thought life was going to be like. And then you get out in the real world. And it runs over you like a steamroller, that bus comes boom. Somewhere along the line. And you wind up down the road, you're like, oh, all right, so this is what it was going to be like, oh, okay. And here you are. Never thought it was going to be this. So I think that really depends on how old the people are who responded to that. But they are finding the main pushes that is that it's harder and harder for people to save their money. And I had said this earlier in the show. I said the reason that I think it's hard for our generation and the generations after us to save money is because each generation is paying more and more and more out of the money they make is going to the government. So there's more of that dollar that the government takes a chunk of. And then if you happen to keep some of it and invest it, they're taking a chunk of that too. So that dollar gets taxed more and more and more and more. And it can be taxed three, four, 5 times, depending on how you use it. What's left of it? Because you never really left with a dollar. I see, oh, wow, they won two, have you ever seen the show? Here we go. I'm gonna put it this way. Another show that I watch kind of not all the time. My lottery dream home, have you watched that? It's on HGTV. And I said, I'm like, oh, my lottery dream home. Most of the people, they want a $1 million. They're looking for a home that's like 250,000. Because you win a $1 million, the government's taken like 50% of it. So you're going to wind up with 500,000. On average. It could be 600, could be 400. Depending on your income bracket. So that's why they're looking for a house that's $250,000. You're like, wow, I'm a millionaire. You're really not. Really only a half a half an hour because the government's taking the other half. You're sharing that with them. You didn't know that when you bought the ticket, but Uncle Sam bought it with you. And Uncle Sam is taking his share. So that's why. They say that lack of financial education and resources may be to blame particularly for women. Women are less likely to say they had access to financial tools in comparison to men. 844-747-8868..

"I think it was back in July. You said inflation was going to be temporary. I think a lot of Americans are wondering what your definition of temporary is. Well, you're being a wise guy with me a little bit. And I understand that's your job. But look, at the time, what happened was let's look at the reason for the inflation. The reason for an inflation is the supply chains were cut off, meaning that the products, for example, automobiles. The lack of computer chips to be able to build those automobiles so they could function they need those computer chips. They were not available. So what happens with the number of cars that were reduced to new cars reduced it made up at 1.1 third the cost of inflation because the price of automobiles were up. So what I did when I went out and made sure we started to make those domestically. We've got Intel to commend and provide $20 billion to build a new facility. A number of organizations are doing the same kinds of things. When can Americans expect some relief from this soaring inflation? According to Nobel laureates 14 of them that contacted me and a number of corporate leaders, it's ought to be able to start to taper off as we go through this year. In the meantime, I'm going to do everything in my power to deal with the big points that are impacting most people in their homes. Yeah. Am I the only person who has zero confidence in Joe Biden to handle this? Zero. I don't think Joe Biden has any clue. He doesn't live in the real world. People who live in Washington D.C. do not live in the real world. They just don't. I've seen it. They live in a bubble where everybody works for the government. They all have guaranteed incomes. They don't have to worry about things like inflation because they get guaranteed pay raises and on and on. And Joe Biden is talking about giving federal workers a pay raise. The rest of us, we don't get those things. We just keep getting to pay the pay raises. That's what we get. And the reason our money doesn't keep up, you look back at I love old movies. So I look back at these houses and the movies in the 40s and 50s. Everybody had a housekeeper. This is a middle class family. And they all had a housekeeper and dad was the only one working. Like how did they do that? It's because they paid far less of their money in taxes, a far smaller chunk of their paychecks went to the government. They got to keep a lot more of what they earned. So we have a much higher tax burden. So before we even get the money in our pockets and then have to deal with inflation, the government has taken a bigger chunk from us than they ever took from our parents and certainly a lot more than they took from our grandparents. So we're automatically dealing with less. So we automatically have to work harder. To keep up the same level of standard of living as our parents had. My mom didn't work. My mom stayed home and when she didn't work. She worked outside the home. All right, so if you're a stay at home mom back off. Because staying at home and raising the kids and running the house, that is no picnic, all right? But they were able to do it on just one income. I know very few families that are capable of doing that now. And you've got to wonder why? Why is that? You're making more money than ever, but the problem is the money isn't going as far as it used to because the government has their big grubby hands in it. That's part of the problem. You add inflation into that. And it's ridiculous. You can't keep up. You just can't keep up. So I have zeros confidence that Joe Biden will be able to handle this. Liz peak will be coming up next we're going to talk to her about what people say about Joe Biden and very interesting poll that was done regarding Joe Biden and his ability to handle the problems that are in front.

"High. Hi, how are you? I'm a shirt guy. I'm doing good now that now that I got the creamer defrosted all is right with the world. That's right. Well, I want to make a quick comment. You know, I love absolutely adore great Todd, but any but comment is every voice except great. Keep referring to Kamala Harris. She is not watch. Her dating bitch isn't dropping her. I thought that one of her parents was Indian and the other was African American. I got you're right. You're a 100% right. You are right. You are a 100% right. Her daily in the interview said that her mom and dad had actually their sale. From her because she had been a disgrace. When it benefits her, she does not have a pin drop a black animal. Well, she doesn't have African blood in her. And I think that's why they don't call her African American they just say black because her family's not from Africa. You know what? You are a 100% right. And I think listen, when she was first elected, she was billed as the first Indian American that was elected to the Senate. That's how she was billed originally. But then when it suits her, she's black. So of course they're going to play the race card. This is what they do. But regardless of whether and I would bet that the Indian side is saying, oh, she's not ours, and the black side sandwich she's not ours. Because she is such an example of what happens when you hire not based on qualifications. She's a disaster, but you're a 100% right, thank you for the correction. I do appreciate that she's not African American. And I think people from Jamaica though consider themselves black. They don't consider themselves white. And this is, can I just say on a little tangent here? Have a great weekend, Jerry lynch to say have a great weekend. This is the problem. When we start having hyphenated Americans, right? You don't have German Americans or French Americans. You're just a white. But when you get into this whole African American thing, then you wind up with well, what about Dominican American or Puerto Rican American? Or Colombian American? Or Jamaican American, it becomes ridiculous. Why can't we I've said this forever and ever and ever, I don't understand why we just can't be Americans. Why do we have to be hyphenated? And the reason for that is for political gain. It's the politicians who do it. It's easier to divide us into classes if you are a hyphenated American. That's why. That's absolutely why they do it. And we allow them to do it to us. And yeah, look at me, say, calling her black. But that's why she was hired because of it because she has now portrayed herself to be black American, and everyone just assumes that's African American when it's not in her case. So she played the card well. She knows how to play the game and look where it's gotten her..

The leaders of nato made it clear after their summit this week. China presents a challenge to the rules-based international order to unpack. Exactly what that means. We reached out to taylor flavell. He's the director of the security studies program at mit where he focuses his research on china and east asia taylor from nato's perspective. What are the major threats. That china presents to as nato says the rules-based international order. So this is a remarkable statement by nato. It's only the second time that china as a country has been named in a nato document first time was about eighteen months ago but this time it was sort of much more detailed and much more extensive and so nato identified a range of concerns with china and i can just kind of run through them here for you. Were kind of the top three. So the top three would be military modernization. that's been ongoing in china. Which is viewed as lacking in transparency and a key component ear that nato identified was the modernization of china's nuclear arsenal in the growth in its nuclear forces. Are they also highlighted. China's stated ambitions and assertive behavior to quote the document itself or what china's been doing in the world recently and then finally a focusing on this idea that nato sees china is coming closer to us right in the cyber domain in terms of investing in critical infrastructure in europe its presence in africa its presence in the arctic and of course it's a growing relationship with russia so there's a sense that as china's become wealthier and militarily more powerful than as advancing new technologies. It's spreading its reach around the world and now finally it's coming. Tomatoes doorstep of this is something that nato must address. So taylor you also mentioned that. The nato statement points to china's expanding nuclear arsenal as a threat what ability you're leverage does nato have to limit china's nuclear development unless it's another arms reduction treaty. Nato doesn't have a direct ability to do so although it has highlighted arms control as possible area of cooperation with china. And so i think one reason why they drew attention to the growth of its. Nuclear arsenal was perhaps a desire to bring china into some kind of arms control talks for negotiations. I think the more general point nato was trying to make years right. That china is becoming a new power on the world stage in one component of that. Is it scoring nuclear arsenal. Now to be clear right. The size of china's arsenal even after doubles as the defense intelligence agency. Estimated last summer will probably be in the low for hundreds terms of warhead said. Still much smaller than the russian or the us arsenals. But i think from nato snap what nevertheless the growth in the nuclear arsenal still is an important area of concern in part because perhaps right there could be an arms race in the future between china and the united states that would create a much more complicated international security environment. I'm guessing nato would like to avoid that outcome. Epic taylor would you say. There's a consensus opinion. Among nato allies on china or do some countries in the alliance think that the us and others are being too tough or too concerned about china so there are some interesting discussion in the press conference after the nato statement was released basically saying to the effect that was in the joint statement was basically a consensus view which is also another way of describing a compromise view and so there are some members of the alliance probably wanted to push for a stronger action against china and there are others who probably would not support those news. How does china's government see what's going on like how. Chinese officials responded to these statements coming out of the nato summit. The chinese foreign ministry. This morning mentioned it. In their press conference. I think they tried to highlight nato as the challenge to international security and stability and not china not sure too persuasive argument but they pointed out that nato has called upon member states to spend these two percent of gdp on defense china. A nominally spends less than that. They also even brought up. Nato's past pointed out the fact that nato itself as quote brought wars and instability to the world for many times and highlighted in particular the air war in kosovo which you may recall occurred without approval of the united nations. And so this is kind of a classic. What aboutism move by the foreign ministry to try to deflect attention from the criticism and taint the other side as the source of trouble or looming lady but beyond that there hasn't been a more systematic response. So taylor we just saw today taiwan reporting incursion by dozens of chinese warplanes into its airspace. Do you think nato could find itself pushing back on tension that is not in its jurisdiction per se like how far is nato willing to go to face down china. My interpretation of the most recent statement is it was somewhat defensively oriented in the sense of really ensuring that europe would be secure rather than becoming involved directly in asia in particular in the conflicts in asia. Now that said there are certain global interests that has a stake in of supporting such as freedom of navigation and one is already seen a greater presence of european navies in the waters of the south china sea not on behalf of nato or under the banner of native paternally as european states who are also members of so i. I suspect that nato is basically expressing concerns of the challenges that china will oppose especially as it comes much closer to europe versus this sense that nato is somehow going to expand and bring asia under its orbit. I don't think there won't be any consensus among most nato members to do that and would also not comport with the way in which russia is clearly identified as the main threat based nato in the number two in this joint statement was terrorism and then china. Right as i mentioned was characterized as a challenge is a direct threat. So i think it's unlikely that we'll see nato playing a significant role in asia. But of course nato may provide support to the united states indirectly different ways to the. Us becomes more involved in some of these issues. Taylor is the author andrew. Sloan professor of political science at mit speaking with us about the announcement from nato leaders about concerns with china. Taylor thank you thank you. biden's first.

"When nico vitam was tapped to do the music for a series on netflix. Nine hundred twenty s germany. He wasn't sure what to make the offer. I don't know anything about ninety twenties music. Just don't worry about it you're going to get your head on. I want you to put together the musicians. And that was how the orchestra. For babylon berlin was born at. Still ahead here on the world. I'm marco werman this is the world we are co production of gbh boston npr. Between turkey and syria. There is a key border crossing. It's become the only reliable way for food and medicine to reach three to four million syrians last year. Russia vetoed a resolution at the un security council to keep three other crossings open. Russia is a close ally syrian president bashar al-assad and helps his government limit aid to opposition held areas. Now russia's signaled that next month it will vote to close the one remaining border-crossing humanitarian groups. Say millions of displaced syrians would then lose access to critical aid earlier. Today i spoke with busted from the norwegian refugee council. And i asked her as president assad asking russia to seal off the syrian border with turkey. I think that could be something that could be happening in the background to I think from where we stand. As humanitarian organizations we constantly see humanitarian operations in the delivery of assistance being hijacked by different political actors in manipulated to meet different political agendas. And so. I think this this might be another attempt within that space but i think the most importantly is to make sure that assistance does reach people inside syria across the country irrespective of of. Who's in control of the territory that they live in wrote. So if this Soul border-crossing bob. Hauer is closed next month. What do you see is the options. If howard is closed than that means the the massive. Un structure that operates under the cross-border resolution will cease to exist. We saw that in the northeast with the closure of the crossing where the un stopped programs and that means also un withdrew funding. And so what. We're expecting to see if the cross. If the resolution is is not renewed this july that the un will halt its programs but then also withdraws funding and that means syrians will be the first to suffer the consequences mb the humanitarian response to be completely hindered and diminished. So you'll probably still have see some ngos that will still continue to try to program but with much less resources and much less very little ability to maintain the coordination and the the capacity or the scope that they have to to reach the people in the northwest. So i guess there is also the option of transporting. The shipments of aid through the syrian capital. Damascus is that a realistic option. Is that happening already so far. We haven't seen any cross line missions successfully reach northwest syria out of damascus. So i think the chance of that. Increasing to match the the capacity and the scope that the un has been able to do through. Cross-border is is very unrealistic. There's absolutely no substitute for the cross-border mechanism the brings over a thousand trucks. Through rabid howa. And it's really unconceivable that they'll be able meet those meet those needs and match the same scale of the response through through cross-line take if the single border crossing a shutdown are we seeing a humanitarian catastrophe. Would start to unfold absolutely i mean we'll likely see a deterioration in the situation with the covid pandemic. We're talking raw over ninety percent of syrians under the poverty line. And you know there's thirteen point. Four million people in syria that are need of assistance. Three million of those at least are in the northwest and so if we're no longer able to reach them then that means that's three million people that will not be able to access. Food won't be able to access clean water proper shelter things of the sort that are you know. The basic basic needs that people rely on have grown very dependent on to be able to survive the day to day struggles in northwest syria. So tomorrow biden. Set to meet with vladimir putin can biden have any influence on russia's decision at this point. Do you know if even a topic in their meeting. We're hearing that. The cross-border resolution is going to be on the agenda. So i think that is promising us. An indication of how the government is really prioritizing this issue and raising it at all levels including the most senior level within the us government but in terms of how much influence they can have. We're hoping that the us and russia will be able to put the politics aside and really you know facilitate humanitarian access An assistance to the people in need based on needs not based on politics bed case scenario would probably imply a lot more migration. What about pressure from other members of the un security council what countries are actively trying to lobby russia not to cast a vote to shut the borders down. I think from from what we've been hearing there seems to be a consensus within the security council within most of the the members That on the need for the cross-border resolution. So i think in that in that sense. I think there's a understanding among council members that you know the the cross-border mechanism is crucial. It's the life saving mechanism And that we need to extend it. How much of that is going to resonate with parties. That are not in favor of this. Mechanism is is to be determined read. It seems like for now. There is a consensus for the most part across new york on on the pro on the need for this for this resolution to be renewed. Bosma lucia z. Policy and advocacy adviser for the norwegian refugee council.

"Nissan chairman. Carlos gone out of japan in a large box. Daniel crazy story. Thanks for speaking with us about it. Thanks marco it was a pleasure some news today from climate scientists who intentionally got themselves stuck in the arctic sea ice last year. They say it's possible that sea ice loss is now simply irreversible. The polar stern research vessel spent more than a year in the arctic. Scientists gathered more than a thousand ice samples as they drifted across the top of the world. Today they spoke about their initial findings publicly for the first time. Stephanie aren't was a lead scientist on the expedition. We all know that. Css is melting in the arctic. And the question is now forced by how long we still have in the arctic. Where we have see is on says. They hope eventually to answer that question. But it'll take years to do a full analysis of the data. They gathered which again say with certainty. Right now is this sea ice. The arctic has changed dramatically. Aren't compared her to those taken more than a century ago and noticed some stark contrast explorer frederick manson and his crew were caught in the arctic. Much longer than arms crew. It took only three hundred days to drift through the entire tactic whereas like hundred thirty years ago when of the similar thing it took him like three years. So this is really Things so to say and this was also really big implications on the entire arctic climate in ecosystem. One other big change between then and now. This winter was much warmer in the arctic than it was during that historic mission roundabout attended degrees warmer than like one hundred twenty five years ago. And here's the really worrying thing is cover. Means more heat can be absorbed by the ocean that creates what's called a climate feedback. Loop a warmer ocean means ice forms later in the season and is also thinner which makes it melt faster et cetera et cetera. You're listening to the world.

"And now we shift our focus from real life political drama to the fictional kind political. Tv shows and movies have seen unwavering popularity over the decades. We wanted to know about your favorite political shows movies and characters. And here's what you told us. Hi this is robyn from philadelphia. My most recent favourite political drama is borgen which is about a woman named. Beer jeep nyborg. Who becomes the first female prime minister of denmark. In addition to really enjoying the characters who felt to me much more real and less hollywood than a lot of characters on american shows. I also gained a better understanding of how a parliamentary system works and of what goes on behind the scenes between the media politicians and they referred to as their spin doctors. I always liked air force one with harrison. Ford is the president. Get off my plane. I think the movie. Dave offered an interesting commentary on fiscal responsibility. The time that is accounting friend came to the white house and went through. The budget is iconic on how they found so much governmental. Waste the best man with henry. Fonda fantastic manchurian candidate angela. Lansbury is so brilliantly evil. Dick with kirsten dunst aah michelle. Williams is so funny. Some people prefer comedies that parody are lawmakers but personally i'm a big fan of the political thriller. I think what i love. Best is the mix of public policy politics and good old action no matter how much high stakes tension there is going on in the actual washington. Dc were california for that matter. There's something endlessly entertaining about the best of these shows and through them. We get a peek behind the capital walls with varying degrees of accuracy. Joining me now to talk about what the best of these shows have to offer is dr lily. Goren professor of political science and global studies at carroll university and co author of madman in politics lilly. Great to have you here. Thanks for having me on today. Nancy so what do you think makes a good political thriller Well i mean a lot of it is The drama obviously so whatever. The narrative arc of the of the show or the movie is and some of the some of the ones mentioned by your listeners including things like borgen Or the mentoring candidate are among my favorites. The depth of the characters involved in how they are interacting with politics as well. Do you think that most successful political television shows tend to mirror the political reality of the moment or they usually things like the west wing that provide a more idealistic hopeful version of our politics. They usually go in either direction of something like the west wing or madam secretary which are idealistic and and to some degree fantastic Or they go in the other direction like say house of cards or scandal where there's a lot of murder and You know started duplicity and secret. Things going on In the halls of power so neither of them are really based on reality And they're they're fun to watch and of course they have you know great actors and actresses and really interesting writers who are sort of threading the plot lines. I surprised that there aren't more shows like the house of cards. I mean there's obviously a huge appetite for detective stories. Police procedural rules mysteries like that. And that you know house of cards is kind of a perfect blend of that but We we just haven't seen that many of them right. Yeah and again you know you have shows that do take this up And something like the wire is another show. That's actually quite political. But it's it's not national. It's in baltimore And it's at a lower level. It's about local politics So you do have different kinds of approaches to thinking about The you know the insanity of something like house of cards but you may see it. In some different sort of venues. I have loved access to international. Tv that street has brought us and some of my favorite shows have been. The norwegian show called occupied which is a full on political thriller. The is rarely show prisoners of war which was behind that led to the american homeland series And i think my all time favorite was the bureau which is a french spy agency show but had very geopolitical focus. Plot have have you seen much international. Tv shows are you waking. I have an an a number of the ones that you are talking about. like the bureau Are among some of my favorites particularly borgen Which you know. The first time. I never wanted to do anything else but watch borgen And it just it again. He served can contrast that to a show. That was made More than a decade or two decades ago in the united states by gina davis commander in chief that was for one season also about You know a woman. As president of the united states all of the conflicts that she dealt with at home and in the office and so forth. That were centering around her gender and in borgen you see so much of the same thing but you also see it in this. You know in a parliamentary system And all of the differences that that kind of a system in a coalition government has So you're right. They're quite a few international shows that also show us a lot of political thrillers like occupied. Which was you know again. Fascinating eating show you know are there any particular shows that really captured. The trump era in washington Well i've been asked this question before and The the television show that is about to debut its fourth season. The handmaid's tale actually Green lit or you know sort of put into production before trump was elected president. But it debuted just he became president and there was a lot of discussion about how it seemed to be capturing a third of the zeitgeist of the the the trump years in terms of you know sort of having women lose autonomy or agency over themselves and their bodies And you know some of the ways that mr trump was misogynistic in some of his commentary. about women and and so i don't think that the handmaid's tale necessarily captures the trump years per se But television also has a lag time because things often have to go into production A year or two beforehand with cova. It's been very difficult to do. The filming And and produce the shows because of the limits on the capacity to do that safely. And so i think we may also have a lag in terms of shows that kind of reflect what people may have been feeling during the trump administration right. So maybe it'll take a couple years but we'll start to see something a little less dark in a little more stick we may. There's always hope and of course we had shows like scandal that tapered off during this period as well which were kind of dark as well. Dr lily.

"Been on. How biden is responding. Well i think it's a little bit of both you know nothing is ever one one thing but i think we've seen that both parties over time and have gotten more extreme so the democratic party has gone to the left and the republican party has gone to the right. That's why in recent years it's been so hard to get things done You know perhaps some of this was joe biden and obviously he agreed to this agenda but some of it was. He was going where his party is going on. But i think you're exactly right. After four years of donald trump. the biden administration president biden came in. He wants to be different. Of course he is deficient in this policies but he also wants to act differently. He wants to show that he governs differently. So that's why you saw a different kind of speech you mentioned early on The tone was different. The language was different You know he he talks differently you know. He sprinkled the speech things like folks. He likes to say that word it. No it's much more personable. He even complimented republicans for sending him a proposal that i know a proposal that the white house thinks is is much too small on this funding plan but they they were trying to compromise or send something over so he wants to be the anti donald trump and he's really leaned into that in how he's governed and how he's talked and i think a lot of that is you know showing us The state of the effects of of the donald trump presidency sung men. What is the reaction among voters and the people in this country to biden's expansion of the social safety net and expansion of government spending so in terms of his actual policy agenda. They've been the voters if you look at polls it's gotten pretty a substantial support substantive support from democrats independents and republicans and i think that's been one interesting one Interesting facet and strategy of this administration that for all the talk about bipartisanship for all the push from congressional a congressional republicans particularly senate republicans who are versed in the language of bipartisanship that it even have his Even if his plans even if this legislation is not bipartisan within the halls of congress as you know the coronavirus relief package did not get republican support. It has bipartisan. Among the american people and they can look polls show that his agenda whether it is the corona virus relief package his plans to kind of expand government assistance You know obviously they have pointed to a public supporting for increased gun restrictions that their plans are bipartisan. among the american people obviously that hasn't won over republicans on capitol hill. Who have really tried to take his tone at his message of unity and turn it on his head by saying that he does he. That biden isn't interested in unifying government. He isn't interested in talking with republicans and working together but in terms of how is how his plans and his message is being received by the american people. The plans his agenda with one major exception which is immigration and how he has handled the situation on the border. It has been largely app supported by the american people. Anita the fact that president bided his spent his first hundred days pursuing these progressive policy. Items that we've been talking about it's got some. Gop leaders incensed not surprisingly this week. Senator mitch mcconnell said quote over a short few months. The biden officials seem to have given up on selling actual unity in favor of catnip for their liberal base And you both mentioned this a bit earlier but tell us more anita about how republicans are reacting to president biden's progressive agenda. While i think some of them are surprised. And we've heard You senator mcconnell and other stay look. This isn't what he campaigned on. And it's really not some of. That's not what he campaigned on. He you know said that he wanted to sit down with republicans and and compromise and work things out. But i think what's happened is as he's come into office and he's surrounded by a lot of Staffers that worked with him. In the obama administration is there. Were really remembering what happened at that time. Which is president. Obama tried alongside vice president joe biden then to really work with republicans and many times. It just didn't work out You know they were. They came to an impasse. Things were delayed and talking to people around this president prison biden. I understand that he feels. This need to hurry up. And get things done and even if he can't get republicans support so be it. He would rather accomplish something with just democratic support. Then nothing Sitting there trying to work with republicans. So it's a real balancing act for him and i'm sure it's it's the source of some frustration. Because he does. He does come from that background. He did spend thirty six years in the senate trying to work across the aisle on some of those issues Seen criticism from republicans and it really remains to be seen here in these next few weeks on some of these spending bills. What's going to happen. republicans sent over something to the white house. That democrats quickly said was not a serious proposal it was much much smaller But present biden has invited members of congress to come over again. He'll meet with the leaders of the house and senate both parties on a couple of weeks so there is that conversation but what happened with that remains to be seen it. They do seem to be sticking to kind of you know like talking about division instead of putting forward proposals or talking about what's wrong with the biden proposal. i mean. did they have an argument. About why child care should not be subsidized or why community. College shouldn't be subsidized in the past. They have made these arguments. But i haven't been hearing them lately. I think it's been hard And my colleagues on the hill. Kind of pointed this out. He's been hard for them to focus their criticism on president biden tougher than say president. Obama up for several different reasons in one. One of the reasons is that they many of them worked with him for a very long time in the senate and they know him and he has a different sort of reputation as this sort of your uncle. Joe You get along with your uncle. Joe kind of you know persona But they have talked about some criticisms. Mostly it's a philosophical disagreement that we've seen from republicans and democrats. They've had this sort of philosophical disagreement. On how big the spending should be One of the things. They're saying it's just too much. They also are disagreeing with some of the things in these plans and of course They disagree on how to pay for. They do not think that some of these tax increases should be pushed through to pay for the plan so there are huge disagreements on all three of those issues. A recent poll from nbc news found that voters find president biden more moderate than president obama at this stage of his presidency Even though you know it's very clear we can see. The president biden is pursuing much more liberal policy so sung men. Why.

"It's official donald. Trump is no longer the president of the united states. As i speak. Joe biden and kamala harris are being inaugurated are being sworn in to their positions and we are about to enter a very new era of national politics of federal politics. I don't expect that it will be easy. In any way we have over-simplified our problems in the sense that we have blamed many of our deep systemic problems that predated trump. We have blamed many of those things on him including police. Brutality mass incarceration when those things were fully entrenched before he ever took office. But i want to say. And i want to talk about this this one thing today. I wanna say the one reason why. I'm going to have a serious degree of grace and patients with both joe biden and kamala harris. That i think a year ago. I probably would not have offered. Had the two of them been sworn in but a lot has happened over the past year. Let me tell you why. I'm going to have grace as they began this extremely difficult journey. Let me unpack and explain it. This is shaun king. You're listening to the breakdown. The breakdown the breakdown. If you've ever listened to this podcast or if you follow me on social media you've ever seen or heard me on the campaign trail for bernie sanders you know that. I've been a huge huge critic of joe biden and in particular. I've been a huge critic of his is policies and history and and kind of problematic past on issues of mass incarceration the war on drugs and policing and win this presidential campaign particularly we go all the way back almost two years now on the democratic primaries i started <hes> there was no coronavirus pandemic. There had been no attack on the american capital and the four hundred thousand plus people who've now died over the past nine months they were they were all alive and what has happened to our nation over the past year truly makes it arguably one of the most difficult years in modern american history of certainly over the past few generations at the very least. It's just been an unspeakably difficult year. And the truth. Is that all of the things that made twenty twenty so hard as we saw just continued into twenty twenty one now with trump out of office and with him off of twitter and i. That's no small thing. I i wasn't. I was on break from the podcast when he was booted from twitter and didn't get really didn't get a chance to really unpack it but having him off of twitter is damn near as big as having him out of the white house. Twitter was his superpower and with him no longer their misinformation and hate and so much other things so many other things just plummeted all over social media particularly on twitter. He he we now. Fully understand was the epicenter of hate and misinformation on that platform. And when you remove him all of a sudden so many other negative metrics plummeted as well now hate and racism and bigotry. Don't disappear when you remove him from twitter. But having trump out of office without the power of that position about the power to appoint judges and supreme court justices and cabinet members and white house staffers in without the power of executive actions without him and his incompetent team overseeing the a horrible response to the coronavirus pandemic a competent team can now be put in place and so a lot of the things that made twenty twenty difficult. Some of those things continue into twenty twenty one though with trump out of office his administration out of office and with him off of twitter. I think there are some things that will get better with that sale. Joe biden comma. Harris are literally about to begin. What i think will be the most difficult presidency in our lifetime
