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.

Generally speaking, the Democrats will say it suck generally speaking. This is a hallmark card made up holiday now because there's nothing that comes out of the state of the union. It isn't more than twenty four hours a headlines, whatever the president promises almost never gets done. So what is the point? No, no, it's important as why one the constitutional orders. I get that. Send a letter if we're still country laws, you gotta kind of. Yeah. You could. But Wilson president Wilson tanks that about a little over one hundred years ago. Everybody used to send it up by written form. But that's I think it's the right thing to do because I do think a president should set the course and explained to the country where we are where we think we should go. And I actually do think that's a responsible having worked on eight individual ones of them. I actually think two things one. This was not one speech was two speeches one calling for bipartisanship, and the other one calling rattling the base. So was actually a kind of a bifurcated speech. Okay. So I know you can't get inside whatever the Trump organization is. But when you put this together when you helped craft this for Clinton in for Obama. I think how much work goes into all the different. I'll tell you what if the anecdote President Clinton used a practice. I would say if I said twenty twenty it could be eighteen, but it was never less than ten times. Minimum. He would practice and keep rewriting it in the auditorium movie theater at the over in the east run it like it was real the first time we were doing this. The President Obama did a run through and said, okay, I'm ready has it. Oh, MAC three days before what do you mean? He I like it was trained with president just talked yesterday about some stuff. And it was just believable. I'm done. Now, here's what I actually think so one let's do a set. The only time you've had two presidents with his lowest job approval going into a divided government speech. One was Ronald Reagan dealing with the recession after eighty two. He was in the thirties recession the other time in. Would be oh seven right after six when we took back the house, George Bush because the Iraq war the truth is with this economy and everything Trump should be the fifties. That's where Clinton would be Obama be an President Bush forty three would be. And it tells you something and what I would have done this speech where I think he missed. It is one it's pretty clear he's close to getting an agreement on Afghanistan. I would have set that up because that is going to be a big deal ending the longest war in American history to I would have set up the China trade negotiations what it meant because if you get it and only he would know you would actually elevate the expectation of how significant because the economy is the biggest thing he has going into twenty blow the market up today. Spending. I do the timing. But let's just say twenty percent of your time on one topic immigration miss that in the next there's three things in the next. Let's call it six months. They could flip his presidency out of the doldrums. Pulling out of Afghanistan, which is not a popular war at this point. Getting an agreement on China that can set the economy and three and argument about why we will say democracy in this hemisphere and Venezuela, and those three things if he had actually spent any time on them, the speech would have actually pre prepared the grounds when those things do happen. At least you can look at it today to hundred three looked likely I would have been he would have actually taken himself out of thirty eight thirty nine percent job approval in a quote, unquote, good economy, an elevated himself to forty six percent. And I think that would have been an I just look at this. As a drive by missed opportunities, politically strategically planning in that White House. I'm inside of him. What you just said. Politically would put the pressure on Democrats, then to respond to the fact that he gave you an optimistic three point agenda. Now, what are you going to do to work with him? And he didn't do any of it. Then in the truth is he could have also put the congress, basically as just a bunch of babies arguing and fighting it constantly acting. And I think he. A planning really missed an opportunity and guaranteed. You got trade talks that have to happen. In with China and they're happening, and you're going to get an agreement because both the leaders need it because of both week leaving shutdown was in there, and they took it up. No. Because I basically he wants to put that as quickly as you can in the rear view mirror and drive seventy miles an hour from them. But you wouldn't go on and say I understand the struggles government workers went through. I think given. No, he's keeps doubling down on a losing hand. This is the guy at the poker table making up for the losses. Yes. And is doubling down trying to get out all the time with a bigger hand. And he keeps losing I would not have done what he did and immigration because the truth is you wanna flip it. And if you have what looks like an agreement with Taliban to end longest war in seven seventeen year war in American history. You would actually created a big win in Americans like one thing for the president to win. Yeah. There's nothing. Incredible waste of. Three wins. Definitely to coming. You don't think you don't think going on the wall? No, I act if if I thought that you would have had it already. But there's a pretty compelling argument nine. To set up maybe a national emergency. I mean, he seemed to be setting up the Republican members of the house and Senate are gonna walk from him on that he's between a rock and a hard place. Well, there is no emergency. It is just complete nonsense. If there was a national emergency the news that he likes to use. And then call fake news. We would see pictures constantly of people climbing the wall in invading and kidnapping and pillaging idiotic. If you want the barrier, would you say, look, this is part of a larger strategy. Here's what he should have been in a large the discussion of immigration what he did was trick it down to one thing. And again, he missed it. I just think and I'm sorry. This is the White House absence. Should the Democrats seize on the ad lib in the speech, he had one line in every said, I want the largest numbers ever legal immigration, which is different than what his administration has done. Yesterday sees on there and say, yeah. Well, then let's see it. No, no. But the problem is you don't have a White House. Look he had an agreement. On a budget. He watched FOX TV which he seems to do every day for like eight hours a day. And decided to walk away from the government. He created this problem McConnell's like, okay, and he spent countless hours trying to figure out I'm sorry. This is not this is not that problem. There's no you act like there's real thinking going on you have a bad case of the for real still. Okay. There's no thinking going, I never motive president who didn't like what Jim Madison. So he fires them. And now everybody's trying to cover up for the one of the worst rakija calls on Syria. And there's another another mistake on Iran and Iraq, give me a break you act like there's really something going on where they sit together in strategically plant. This is a person. Wakes up on what side of the bed. He gets out how he falls out of the chair when he's watching TV and there is a win right there for both sides because the win is weekend. We can work because the border is the problem. The border has been a problem for a generation fix it for real fixed immigration for real. President Clinton used to say we were a nation of laws and a nation of immigrants and anything you do has to respect both of those. Right. And that's where you're going to we've. But you know, the problem is and this is not Trump's Louise making a worse. There is. Big support in the middle. The sound is on the extremes. And leadership now is trying to find a we've a place that everybody can get enough to declare victory medals. Gotta make more noise. Well, here's the interesting part of the wanted chap is on the right on my book is don't ever confuse them politics sound with fury. And the truth is people on the extremes. Make a lot of style. There's not a lot of sound coming out of quote unquote, the middle, but don't ever confuse the loudness of the sound with the fury of where there's follow and forget about the middle. And you never get anything done ideological. But there there's a pla- people want to see progress course. And sometimes you do it four or five steps. Sometimes you do it a step at a time. But it's just there's no. There's no great great call out of the middle quote, unquote for let's do this. They wanna see it. But they don't advocate with the same energy that the extremes. Do we got good news and schools, I wanna get to. But first are you going to need help with cubs tickets? No. Notice something I noticed that you're quite upset with Mr. Ricketts. Let me I want to be clear because if my brothers do some that there wasn't Joe Ricketts comments do not belong in the city. And the one thing I know Tom Ricketts Lauren I'll say complimentary it's clear that their mother had more influence on their child rearing than Joe Ricketts. And what he said is that port to everything I believe in everything this city believes it's racist. And he and he owes everybody an apology, and he doesn't belong here. I actually I spent very little time in Nebraska, my guess, it doesn't really belong in Nebraska. Here's the deal. Don't bring any of that to this city. You want to say it in Omaha. Go ahead, but don't bring it here. And if you say, we'll probably gonna still scream at you because it doesn't belong anywhere in America. David anything from the Ricketts family in the past couple of well, Tom Brady issued a statement saying not Joe to distance himself. Joe Ricketts did. He did. Made a statement with an apology. He wants in this Email with his son said not Tom shares values never are true awards. I don't share those values, and guess what nor the city of Chicago share that values. Now, my mother ran congress on racial equality was helping organize. It did the integration of Chicago beaches and housing Chicago corporate was that core program Corp. I will just say this. I think she needs about I think Joe Ricketts needs about two hours. My mother good Jewish mother would set him, right? Which? Two and a half hours. But I think after what she's done with three boys sheets, you separate you separate Joe Ricketts from the rest of it from the from Tom, and Laura, and and the Chicago, I know you can never read a book by stuff, but I spent a lot of time the Tom Ricketts negotiating so he could invest in really feel and and be a good neighbor to Wrigley Ville, I spent some time with Laura in a partner. I will just say those I've never heard nor have I seen any intimation that those are their values. Joe Ricketts is not only job RIC. It's all I can indicate is that MRs Ricketts had a greater influence on their child really and their values than Joe Ricketts this guy assumes because he's rich. He has a character to speak on anything. We've seen. Wrap on President Obama and the birther which is when I took them up, and I'll and I'll just say this this stuff does not belong..

"I would just say I haven't picture in my office. I've I've number pictures, but there's two or three of President Clinton into three president bomb. 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. What fact fast for some about President Obama called about what we need to do on certain financial stuff? And it was on a Friday night are Chabad Sabbath dinner at home in eastern. I apologize when it was like nine thirty. And he says I'm about to go to bed or ten o'clock, etc. When we were passing the assault and band in ninety four President Clinton, call ten o'clock, and you get the White House operator that says, Mr. manual. Yes. The president would like to speak. You you kind of sit up I'm talking and he goes was president. And we're going over votes to get. She had fallen asleep in the middle of the conversation. Two thirty in the morning. Phone rings. I'm sleeping on the side of the bed where the phones, and it's the White House operator two thirty in the morning, President Clinton and he says. Look, I finish all my calls. Here's what it is. And he goes give me some more names. And now the vote is tomorrow as our today's from that. And I two thirty in the morning. You can't do that. I said he goes, no ready to call an an Amy rolls over and goes who's at angle, it's the present. She goes chief out. It was one conversation. We tell him to go to bed. And about President Obama would no more a s the names members. Call you at two thirty in the morning, and you could call other people do their present Clinton thirty. I'm in the middle of my work day. And he would be calling all the way now president stylistically excetera prison Obama if it's eight thirty meeting he's in the office at twenty five is an eight thirty meeting President Clinton, whatever because he'd been up till two thirty three o'clock in the morning. Call on members chitchat and going over stuff they had different styles and different areas different ways of doing things, but they were both very competitive. Very Taneja people that I've been honored to ask to serve. So as you like to say, this is holy ground.

"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.
