US intelligence report says Russia attempted to interfere in 2020 election
"A new report by the U. S. Intelligence Community says Russia sought to influence the presidential election last year in favor of Donald Trump. But as NPR's Greg Marie tells us, there's no evidence that Russia or any other country attempted to alter actual votes. The nation's lead intelligence agency says the Russians thought to help Donald Trump primarily by denigrating Joe Biden and the Democratic Party during the presidential campaign. A report by the office of the director of National Intelligence is the most comprehensive look yet at foreign efforts to meddle in the 2020 election. But the basic message is the same one that the U. S intelligence community has been delivering since last August. Namely Russia wanted Trump to win, though its effort was not on the same scale. As in the 2016 election, the intelligence community said it found no sign that the Russians nor any other nation were able to change any votes. Greg my RE NPR NEWS

The one reason I will have grace for President Joe Biden & Vice President Kamala Harris
"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 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
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.
Biden announces all-female White House communications team
"The newly minted. Staffers named to the white house office of digital strategy included number of longtime democratic operatives. Many of whom worked for biden's presidential campaign. The group will be asked not only to recreate the digital operation that helped defeat donald but to build out an operation that follows a president who wielded more social media power than any of his predecessors which is what he's done unfortunately so rob flaherty who worked as the digital director of the biden campaign. He's gonna assume. The role of director of digital strategy white house. Jaime lopez will work as director platforms and brandon cohen who previously served as the deputy director of editorial on the biden campaign. He's going to serve as a platform manager of the digital operation. So they're going to be joined by. Jonathan hebron as video director and chronic would as the creative director both of whom held similar roles on the biden campaign as he was running. Biden's digital team is expected to focus on many of the same tactics and help the former vice president's campaign working directly with digital content creators and influencers to expand the administration's reach this builds on work. That was done in the final years of the obama administration where the president would routinely appear on platforms outside the normal venues for the commander in chief. And i think we're learning through like amc and a lot of people that like tiktok and those streaming things are going to be a good way to reach the younger generation. So there's a host of other digital operatives that are going to fill out this office of digital strategy. We got visors designer livia raizner as traveling content director without rebecca rank vic and christian tom as the deputy directors of digital strategy and cameron trimble as the director of digital engagement. All worked on biden's campaign and biden said today after being briefed on foreign policy that he's facing considerable roadblocks to transition especially from trump allies in the pentagon and the office of management and budget. So i honestly. I don't think joe biden is going to be silent about these issues. He's clearly frustrated with the interference from outgoing loser. And i think he's gonna start beginning more vocal about it. Yeah this is kind of an interesting signal right. Because everyone's like oh he's gonna be for unity and he's just going to ignore all that stuff and be super kind but he was kind of pissed today in his public remarks. He's like yeah. I'm facing roadblocks in the middle of a deadly pandemic from the assholes at the pentagon
Why SMS Marketing Works
"Is the founder of converse smart. He is served in the us army. He's a smart guy. He knows more about sms. Marketing than anyone else. I know and so what i did. I posted on my facebook group. And i said hey. What are your questions. And i got a whole list. Great questions here to ask him. But the thing i want to start with ari is the the fudd around. Sms fear uncertainty in doubt. People are well merchants anyway. Seem terrified of s marketing. But like don't think twice about sending an email blast to got an email list right at least based on the sheer number of newsletters. I know i didn't sign up for but still somehow am on but s. They're afraid of it. So someone The question i want to open with you acuna. Hurry is a gentleman who said. I don't do any sms marketing presently because personally hate it as a consumer. But that's really the only research i've done it. I find it incredibly intrusive and kurt. Gosh this poor man. And so what he that was his. That was a setup. He's tortured by sms. text him. he'd like just wants to die and his name is jeff and his question there is are there any stats tracked about loss of customer finicky. Like fewer repeat orders unsubscribe. It seems like the financial is there in the short term. But i worry about the long term loss of goodwill. Please put this to rest. Yes let's do it so first of all. Thank you for having me on your podcast. Super excited to talk about sms out and this is one of the things that i hear all the time so every time i talked to marketers. Either someone is really pro. S other really against sms. That's kind of what we've seen Talking to many direct consumer e commerce marketers or people have received calls from telemarketers. Sean sell them something. So people are very reluctant to give away their phone numbers so a lot of the time as more of like a personal thing where people have had that experience like. We've all experienced. As i remember when i was in new york and got like a puppy like ten different messages from president trump. I never remember ever opting in for any presidential campaigns ever. But i guy like ten for once So this is probably like people who have experienced things like this and they never like ogden. So it's like okay like them. Doing it now feels like they're kind of like doing what the spammers are doing. Like you said it's the same people who would go and email a full list That probably opt in. That are still scared of sending those messages out via texts. But the thing is we've done the research we have tons of data on it We've lunch twenty twenty state of text marketing report. Move lot of information and what we found out is that there is no reason for someone to be scared of texts marketing. And here's why. The average consumer spending more and more time on their mobile device over ninety percent of americans can be reached via text and demographic demographics between ages of eighteen and sixty two prefer text over any other communication method. And if you really think about it when we communicate with friends family coworkers. Use messaging apps. Right and sms is probably one of the primary use and it doesn't matter who it is. Everybody opens or text message like obscene. Like people who have never like open their emails but when it comes to tax they always open every single text message. And that's the first thing that we need to know. That consumers are on that channel and the thing about marketing is that like businesses have to go where the consumer is at so. It's the same thing here where personally you might think that may not work or it's invading and no one should ever sign up for it but the data shows otherwise the consumer are signing up to get these text messages. They're receiving text messages. From presidential campaigns two factor authentication order delivery confirmations customer service

New tensions emerge between Biden team and Trump administration
"Joe biden's incoming administration is taking shape. Former deputy secretary of state anthony blinken will be nominated for secretary of state x fed chair. Janet yellen is up to run treasury retired. General lloyd austin has been tapped to run the defense department. Some of these names have been more controversial than others. there've been some progressive objections to biden's likely pick a former iowa governor. Tom bill sack to reprise his role running. The agriculture department and a lot of republicans in the senate are cool to the choice of near attended a close hillary clinton confidante to run the office of management and budget. Some other choices like yellow. Have gotten pretty warm receptions across the political spectrum to talk about this administration that's what is likely to mean in terms of what a president joe biden might actually do. Let's bring in our left right and center panel on the right law. Chen is the david. Diane steffi fellow at the hoover institution and he's the director of domestic policy studies and lecturer in the public policy program at stanford lot. He has worked on several presidential campaigns for republicans including george w bush's reelection campaign marco. Rubio's two thousand sixteen run and he was the policy director for mitt romney in the two thousand twelve presidential campaign. Hello lonnie thanks for having me and on the left sabil. Rama joins us. Bill is president of demos a progressive organization that studies and advocates for voting rights economic and racial justice and equity sabil is also an associate professor at brooklyn law school. Bill so bill when you look at these names What does this tell you about. The sort of administration that joe biden is preparing to run. So i think the roster that's being built out is really interesting to me what it shows. Is there too big tensions that i think the new administration is trying to balance. A one is a balanced between old hands and some new faces and the other is a balanced between a pragmatic course and also progressive ones. So when you think about someone like janet yellen or cecilia rouse on the economic team These are folks who have deep experience in economic policy but also represent. I think a little bit more of a kind of a progressive wing of the larger policy debate. Not these are certainly not Bernie sanders elizabeth warren folks but they very much represent a part of the economic profession that is increasingly focused on issues of inequality Racial equity and issues of how we get around are sort of current problem of austerity politics. Lot he what do you make of this list of names. Well i think first of all there are a number of very highly qualified people on the list people who have great experience in government who i think even republicans who may have policy or ideological concerns would have to say are well qualified to play the roles. They've been a nominated by the president. Play and so. I think that that's a very hopeful. Sign on the other hand. You've got some real head. Scratchers here josh. There are people who the president is nominated for roles in various situations that i think people kinda wonder what was he. Thinking there Heavier sarah for example to be secretary of health and human services a man with no health policy no public health background who's really so claim to fame in healthcare is arguing to defend the affordable care act which by the way may have been enough for biden but it really seems to be one of those picks where he had put the sarah somewhere so he put him at. Hhs which under ordinary circumstances might be okay but in the middle of a pandemic hhs is going to play a critical role in disturbing the vaccine and hopefully overseeing and the the end of this covid nineteen pandemic here in the us. choice of. Sarah is puzzling one. The other one that i would point to which doesn't require senate confirmation and so Will be what it is. Is susan rice as director the domestic policy council which has traditionally been the policy making apparatus at the white house that coordinates the creation of domestic policy overseeing areas like education and health care immigration. Picking someone with with the deep foreign policy experience for that job seems to me to be a little bit odd. I think she was picked for that job. In part because it doesn't require senate confirmation and biden. His team knew there was no way republicans. Were going to confirm someone is controversial. Susan rice so for every sort of great. Pick for every janet. Yellen for every brian You know you have a few that sort of make you think. Gosh what is the biden team doing here. So it's a little bit of a mixed bag so far. Yeah bill when. I look at the list of names. I do sometimes see what he is describing their almost a sense that biden had list of people that he liked and wanted to give jobs to and a list of jobs he needed to fill and in some places. The matching of the to feels a little bit random. I'd also point to to marcia fudge who's an african american congresswoman from cleveland. She'd openly campaigned to be agriculture secretary. She's a senior member of the agriculture committee. There'd been a lot of progressive concerns about how the agriculture committee has dealt with black farmers and about beneficiaries of nutrition programs people primarily eat food rather than making it And biden has passed over. Her is expected to bill sack in that position and then fudge specifically said that she didn't want one of these traditionally black cabinet jobs like labor or housing and urban development. She's going to be put up to run housing and urban development. So some of these choices they do have that feeling to me of what we want this person job. Well here. this one's available. Let's give them out. One is that is that. Is that too harsh. Look looking at this selection process and saying that you know i. I do think there's a little bit of that. In terms of the example with congressman fudge gave. I think is a is a good one of your. She has deep expertise actually on areas connected to usda. I'm at the same time. I think she'll bring a novel. Interesting and important voice went on the issues of hud but there is a little bit of that. I think the thing i would offer is you know. There's so much going. On with this transition. Given the pandemic given the extraordinary delays that the trump administration put in place at one things that we're really looking at is what's what does that next layer down. Look like so when you think about the whole team Not just cabinet but cap a deputy secretaries and so on can does it look like a team that then has the balance of deep expertise and Mission alignment right at someone. Folks who are laser focused on the combined crises of of the economy and covid and climate and original justice moment. That's the next layer. That i would look at right. Are folks getting complimentary. Picks to offset some of where they might need additional insight or expertise

The last few days have seen big developments shaping the presidential campaign that you might have missed, so it's a good time to check in with some of our reporters who are covering this very unusual race. Let's start with the Biden Campaign Journal. National Political reporter Kent Thomas spoke with our Mark Stewart. Can at this moment in time. What is the priority? Is it to reach voters virtually, or is there some importance with in person visits? So the bind campaign has placed a big emphasis on virtual events and reaching people at their homes during the pandemic, but Biden has begun to emerge from his home more frequently a really for mid March she, he stayed home in Delaware until recently he laid a wreath on Memorial Day and then after the protests, he made a stop in Wilmington to talk to people in the streets, he also. Also, met with clergy, members and community leaders about ways of addressing structural racism and earlier this week he went to Philadelphia to deliver a speech on the death of George Floyd and what it means for the country, so we're likely to see him out more in public in the weeks ahead. Some of his allies have suggested that he may soon visit Minneapolis and could attend the funeral of George Floyd in Houston next week. We're not likely to see him. Hold campaign events in the same manner that he did during the primaries. But I think we're going to see him. Make take a much more public role in the weeks ahead. Can let's talk about messaging are the topics of discussion from the Biden campaign changing day today, or are there some constant areas of focus? It's interesting in some ways. Biden's message has shifted to respond to the pandemic and the unrest, but in other ways it hasn't. A Biden has said since day one that the race will be a battle for the soul of the nation, and he's really double down on that message as the protests of grown. Throughout his campaign, he's he's tried to project compassion and empathy and position himself as the candidate who could help heal the nation, but in other ways Biden's message is shifting. At times early in his campaign, he would often say that the trump presidency was an aberration and that he could help the country. Go back to where it was during the Obama years almost like hitting a reset button, but the economic fallout from a pandemic in the unrest has led him to talk about the need to transform the economy and address some of the economic inequities that have been exposed by this, and that's a message that could appeal the more liberal elements of the party. People like people who supported Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth. Warren during the primaries. Primaries and he probably has more leeway to offer boulder solutions because of the level of unemployment right now when when you hear events, he'll often talk about his affinity for Franklin Delano Roosevelt for example, and and his response during the Great Depression and he has said if he's elected, he could inherit an economy that's under a level of duress that we haven't seen. Since the nineteen thirties, abiding is expecting to roll out a series of economic proposals in the coming weeks in that could give us an indication of how dramatic in bold he intends to go. The Wall Street Journal's can. Thomas can thank you for being here could be with you. Thank you. Mark also spoke with Mike Bender one of our White House correspondents to get the latest on the trump campaign. Mike at this moment in time. What is the current priority for the trump campaign? Will the current priority from the trump campaign is getting past the pandemic getting through these protests, and somehow getting the nation focused on the economy where trump performs best with the American public trump will talk about the economy chance. He gets the problem that he and his campaign or having right now. Is that The economy is playing second fiddle to some very big other issues right now that they're being forced to address so so yes, they're being forced to. Tailor their message a little bit so right now what we're seeing. From trump and his campaign is a focus on a message of law and order, trump wants to project himself as the as the person who can bring some sort of order back to the country as a supporter of law enforcement, and only through that path, and that sort of unequivocal. Message with with no nuance. Does he think we can get back to talking about restoring the economy? Mike with more parts of the country reopening. Does this mean we will see more in person? Campaign stops. Yes I I think we're GONNA start seeing some more imprisoned campaign stops from trump. He has put some fundraisers on his calendar. They've been doing virtual fundraisers. Since the lockdown started. The pandemic. He's going to go to Dallas and I believe New York dues and fundraising and person, which is much more effective for the campaign, and when it comes to these big money events, and we've seen trump out on the road quite a bit more this past month after not leaving, White House grounds over the month of April. He did some official events in not coincidentally all battleground states including Arizona and Pennsylvania. On Friday he goes to Maine. which has some some electoral votes up for grabs there and the Republican Party is pushing North Carolina to hold a full convention at the end of August they want a full arena. Ten to twenty thousand people cheering trump for his convention speech, which is a pretty clear signal that by then you know, which is in the not too distant future that they are going to start holding some of these rally style campaign style events in person. That was our Mark Stewart speaking with journal White House correspondent Mike Bender, and that's what's news for this morning. If you like our show, please rate and review us.

"presidential campaign" Discussed on NPR Politics Podcast
"News but I think you know the truth and that is that we announced some three hundred delegates behind Vice President Biden and the path toward victory is virtually impossible. Scott you spent much of the past year covering Senator Sanders actually more than a year. So why is this? Why is this the moment for him to leave the race? Well I mean. I don't think there's one specific thing about this particular moment. But ever since he lost that string of races in March. It's been pretty clear that there was next to impossible path for Bernie Sanders to become the Democratic presidential nominee in that only became even more of the case when so many states move their primaries back in this. The primary was totally upended by corona virus and the current political and economic and health World is is a big reason why Sanders says he is ending ending things right now. He spoke at one point specifically to his supporters. Who wanted to stay in the race? I know that there may be some movement. Who Disagree with this decision. Who would like us to fight on? The ballot cast at the Democrat Convention. I understand that position but as I see the crisis gripping the nation exacerbated by president unwilling or unable to provide any kind of credible leadership and the work that needs to be done to protect people in this most desperate hour I cannot in good conscience continue about the campaign. They cannot win. I was so struck by his sort of honest assessment. There of how much the pandemic has affected his own assessment right of staying in the race. Because you can always kind of dive into hypotheticals but I have been wondering if we weren't in this situation where so? Many primaries have been now delayed till June would Bernie Sanders estimation of what to do in. This moment have been different. Dynamic would have been there no matter what Reality we were living in right in this moment. And that is that Bernie Sanders one. Basically three of the I four contests that tie that unclear tie in Iowa among them but as soon as the race consolidated down as soon as a lot of the other more. Moderate candidates dropped out of the race. It was very clear the Bernie Sanders just was not going to grow his support past that thirty percent or so of Democratic primary voters in net. If anything. He was getting less support than he did for years ago. And I don't think any situation would have change that. It really is incredible like for a long time. He was one of the front runners. Then he was the front runner and then in in moments it all slipped out from underneath them. After Joe Biden one South Carolina. Yeah and I think. In particular that one day that started on the West Coast and Bernie Sanders and the reporters following him slowly made their way east across the country and it seemed like every time the plane landed another candidate had dropped out of the race and endorsed Joe Biden and he just never recovered for that and that was a conscientious choice that they made to consolidate the support behind one single alternative to sanders in what I would argue was a quest to stop sanders from becoming the nominee. I mean had this race become and continued on his splintered as it was. You could have made the case that it would have been a very different race. But the fact that we saw boo judge Klobuchar one after the other candidate. Just come out and say I'm going to stand behind. Joe Biden was unlike anything I'd seen in a previous election cycle but let's stop and pause and reflect on sanders impact here because this in a lot of ways I mean was was a race that was fought on sanders turf. Talking about issues that Bernie. Sanders cared about that. Were totally fringe. Ideas in two thousand sixteen and in twenty thousand twenty. They were on the debate. Stage EVERY SINGLE TIME. And not dismissed. I don't know if they were fringed but they were certainly not ideas that democratic establishment leaders fully embraced or made a big part of their campaigns and changed over the last four or five years. That's something Sanders talked about today. And I think even healthcare even people like Joe Biden who were not running on medicare for all who were arguing against Medicare for all. We're still framing. The basic of their healthcare conversation around things that Bernie Sanders pushed for right. Like Pete Buttigieg talking about Medicare for all who wanted and Joe Biden's platform whether it's on health care or climate change or a whole bunch of other issues is still far to the left of any other past Democratic nominee and I think that has a big part to do with the movement that Bernie Sanders lead over the last few years before we go to the break. Scott I I want to go back to the interview that you did with Sanders over the summer. It was part of our series where we were interviewing the presidential candidates. You sat down with him and and it was this unique thing where it was just you and Bernie Sanders. His aides left room. I can't imagine another interview with the candidate where they weren't just surrounded by aides and I think that says something about how central Sanders was to the sanders campaign. Yeah I think that I mean certainly. This was a professional campaign. It was a large campaign staff. They did a lot of innovative things including really rewriting the entire rules of how you raise money and Organiz online more than anybody else. Since the Internet became a central part of presidential politics but it was a campaign that revolved around the candidate and that trusted the candidate and was confident in what the candidate was running for like. Nobody was trying to get the best political spin or framing on sanders saying yeah. Of course you'RE GONNA pay more taxes under my health care plan right there were just like. That's what running on. That's our message. That's our movement. Certainly that might be part of a reason why he was never able to expand to a majority of the Democratic Party but they just trusted in their candidate. And I'll just never forget the aid saying okay have a good interview and closing the door and then it was just our producer and editor and Bernie Sanders in me sitting there and we were like okay. I guess I guess nobody's GonNa end this interview or handle it's just it's just US talking That was that. That's not a lot anderson. Pretty good at ending interviews on his who that is true and he also had thoughts on how we were recording him. That appeal is gonNA drive me crazy. You're you want all right. Highlight a total highlight. Well we are GonNa take a quick break and when we get back we're GonNa talk about what Sanders exit means for the race..
"presidential campaign" Discussed on Cape Up with Jonathan Capehart

"presidential campaign" Discussed on The Jason Stapleton Program
"It's been fascinating seeing her. Go from being like. DC is a darling darling to even even even very liberal Silicon Valley people who have a ton of money they have. They're going to be able to swing election with the amount of money they have because so much of their wealth is paper wealth wealth. It's not they don't have a bank account with fifty million dollars in it. They have fifty million dollars wrapped up a stool estate and stock and everything they have to liquidate all of that. You're talking about just just a a an impact on the economy that we can't even fathom so it's it's fascinating to me then seeing the media start to pivot away from her because they're they're realizing there's so much money that's coming out against her that we need to find a new darling. So then it's it's funny to me that there was such a pristine opportunity for them to hit Buddha Jag with a massive campaign gaffes this week this last week. He had a A letter that he's his campaign sent out or they said I'm they use this historically black college and university to say his his his called his Douglas Plan. I think which is to rebuild African American communities and said we have four hundred prominent leaders in African American communities that are that are support my Douglas Plan including these three specific ones in South Carolina on three black politicians and then after they released this this here the supporting him. The three two of those three came out and they were like we don't support him for president. You didn't have permission for us to to use our name mm-hmm because this is his big issues that he doesn't appeal to black the black communities at all and not only that but of the four hundred and twenty two people on their over two thirds of them aren't even black they're white but the insinuation was that they're black. Do you think he really needs. I mean we're coming up on the end of the show but do you really think he needs the black vote or do you think that black vote is going to turn out for a against Donald trump character regardless of of who of who they put up he needs the black vote to win the the primary. He won't win the primary so he's easily the least popular of all the okay. So but the the inferences that somehow Joe Joe Biden is liked by more blacks than Buddha Jag and that Warren is liked by more than they probably will warn would be. Yeah just because she says like a lot out of people are just going to be like Text text wealthy. So that's for Biden. It's he's he's Obama's Bro. That's that's the extent of a lot of people's analyses so for Buddha Jag. It's the the very last segment of the population to to to flip on gay marriage and a lot of them haven't was black Americans. Black Americans Americans were the most vehemently opposed to gay marriage and so him being gay is one of the big things that cuts against him. So that's for him him to win. Primary he has to overcome that. And it's I mean they have him on video confronting a group of black protestors because he was trying to talk to them about the police shooting that happened in his in his in his area. where he he didn't on sanction any type of consequences for the the officer who perpetrated the shooting and so these this black lives matter crowd? I was protesting him and he said you know. I'm sorry that I couldn't get anything done. Relax on the And they were mad at him and they said they said how are you going to run for president and ask for our our vote. If I'm if you can't even help your own community and he said well I'm not asking for your vote. And they said well you sharing getting it and that clip is just to have a A running on presidential candidates say I'm not asking for your vote to the singles constituency that he needs. The most is just devastating. Think well we'll see how it goes. We'll see how he does in the later. Primary States the bottom line is you gotta get through Iowa and New Hampshire before you move on if you can't win those. You're you're not going to have the money to proceed and so we'll see what happens at that in Iowa and the first couple battleground states and but he right now. It looks like he's going to do all right in those early states. And that's that's what he needs to carry on. One of the things about people is that they have very short memories And the we tend to have longer memories because we follow this stuff and we pay very close attention to it. The vast majority of Americans aren't even paying attention to politics right now they they won't pay attention until probably two who months before the primary in their state or maybe a month before the primary and their state and then they won't pay attention again until about a month or two before the general election action. I know that shocking to anybody who listens to this show but it's true. It happens every single year every year and so it's very very easy especially for politicians to believe and say one thing early on and then pivot later on when they need to harness a different vote. Vote so this is typical in primaries. Is that people tend to be very hard core. Leftists if you're if you're if you're a Democrat or on the right if you're Republican and then you begin to soften that as you move into the general because the people who vote in primaries are the hard core. They're they're the core base of your audience. The people who vote in general elections and the people who win general elections are people who are softer because they don't the people who are voting in the general election are are not typically extremists. That that's not them. You need the the core base you gotTa have him. Can't win without Adam but you also have to reach the others as well. So how do you do that. That's how they do it. That's part of the reason. Why if I had to put money on it right now I would say the Democratic candidate is either either going to be Bernie Sanders or it's going to because he's he's easily the most popular of all the ones remaining and he's been moderating all of his positions so heavily lately that it tells me he's compromising on so much stuff that it tells me he's got big money Democrat support saying if you've chill out on some of this stuff you'll get our backing but I really think it's somebody who's not even in the election yet I think is going to be the nominee Because all of the candidates are so a little late the for them to forget. Because it's it takes a lot 'cause he's gotta be I mean he's got to be in early enough to to have an Iowa beyond the night would be someone it would be someone who's high profile enough that he has the name the name recognition that he could just jump in or she the Bloomberg is we think even bigger Clinton is is or someone who they are that Clinton is grooming is because she's she's still pulling the strings behind the scenes. But I think it's one of someone is going to get dropped in because all these candidates are so weak and they're all chipping at each other and it's so boring and everybody knows that there's there's nothing thing. Nothing compelling coming out of this so there's a lot a lot a lot of big money that's just sitting around waiting for someone that they're willing to throw money at and that's what's GonNa Money. Here's what went the Election Hilton. And that's why say these first few these first few primaries is what will make the difference because that that will the primary challenges will show. Who's getting the votes and that's where the money will go and everybody else? Their their political careers will just die at that point. They just they won't be able to continue. And that's what will cause them to fall out and being an indie since a lot out of these are midwest votes initially being being a mayor of a small town in the midwest will play to Buddha. jags strength early on which can give the appearance of more support than he actually has so than other people like. Oh well he did really well there and then if the media really jumps on board with him starts pushing which it seems like they are with this last debate. I'm time then. Then here's the trick though. There's so much social proof that goes into this so the more if he wins the first couple of primaries and it could be anybody mcgeehan's could be him could be Sh shoot on. Let's say it's it's Bernie Sanders. Who wins the first couple right all of a sudden he looks like he's a winner therefore more people pay attention to him? More people are predisposed to like him and nationally. His his ship starts to rise as well. So you'll see that happen. been to if if any one of them can command a lead early on you but you know guys like Jeb. Bush were never going to do well. And I think the same thing is true for for for Joe Biden in for Elizabeth Warren. They just long-term they were never going to do well and everybody falls. It's it's like a broken record. I see it every year. It's just you. Everybody falls into following the crowd listening to what the pundits are saying on on the the news outlets and the reality is people do the same thing over and over and over again and over and over and over again remember when Howard Dean was leading and one the first couple of of of primaries and then he performed poorly in the second or third primer at at the look it up performed poorly ended up getting on stage making a massive gaffey the high-speed right which probably played great to the crowd. But what people forget is that the crowd is the is. It is a tiny fraction of the people who are watching. You're never playing to the crowd you're playing to the audience the Peop- The cameras because that's where the millions and millions of people are going to see every single thing that you did. And he was not paying attention to that and his crew was over he was I was going to be the nominee the next president of the United States and in a matter of less than a month it was over for him. And that could happen to any one of the candidates that we're talking talking about today It's just a right now in analyzing the field there are a few people who are who are starting to stand out as potential tendulkar contenders. And it's not the people that we thought that anybody thought to whether those gaps actually come back to haunt actually Damage people to is also Affected largely by the media handles it on so like what what what Buddha. Jake had his gaff with the especially with his issues. Being with with African African American voters. That gaff could have been fatal if the media chose to focus on it but they they ignored it. Yeah and then just before this is a small thing and it's funny but this is it's so was Howard Dean's wins Joe Biden's sent out his post-debate email like three hours before the debate. This most recent debate..
"presidential campaign" Discussed on The Jason Stapleton Program
"To get those houses built. Could it be that rent control laws and everything else that that that affects a builder's older decision to build make it far too difficult for them to build the type of housing that everybody that everybody in Washington wants built of course does garage converted to be a bedroom for my three brothers. So I've got a plan for three point. Two million new housing units in America does our housing units for working families for the working. Poor the poor poor for seniors who want to age in place for people with disabilities for people who are coming back from being incarcerated. It's about tenants rights but there's one more piece. Housing is how we build wealth in America. The federal government has subsidized the purchase of housing for decades for white the people and has said for black people. You're cut out at the deal that was known as redlining. No it's not Elizabeth. That's not what redlining is you you more on you buffoon you economic illiterate. That's not what redlining is first of all before I even get to redlining first of all we subsidize housing for White people but not for black and Brown people again. I point Hud to you. The very program I submit to you the ACORN Acorn loan program of two thousand eight I submit to you. The the actual restriction of banks and forcing them to give loans the people who couldn't afford them subsidizing programs for them to help them drive down interest rates so they could get into properties. It is a bald-faced total lie that we subsidized housing for white people and not for black people. It's just wholly wholly and completely untrue. And that's not what redlining is you dummy. redlining was when a bank said. You know what this area of town is terrible. It's high crime and the value of homes in this neighborhood doesn't appreciate quickly enough or in worst case goes down in value value over time. And we don't WanNa own properties in that neighborhood so we're going to tell our banks that they can't write loans owns in those areas and they drew out a little red air in this and if the house is inside this zone. We're not gonNA ride alone there now. Why would they say that because when you buy a house through a bank? The bank owns the house until you pay it off. The bank owns that property. And if you end up not paying on the loan they take that property back. Then what are they gonNA do with it. Well if it's in an area where houses don't sell well where they they tend to depreciate in value where people don't take care of them now they've got themselves Limon and they can't resell it they gotta take a loss on the property that it happens enough times they say look. We're just not going to write loans in this area anymore. Just so happens that because of government intervention and the desire to quote quote unquote help black minorities. The bulk of the people in these redline districts and redline areas where poor blacks and and so what the government did was they went and they said you know what you dirty greedy banks. How dare you not loan to blow poor black people people you filthy racists? We are going to outlaw red lining in this country. A bank is no longer allowed to refuse alone. Loan based on the location of the property shocking. What do you think happened? I don't even have time to get into it today. Well what happened. Well the bank said well we. We can't really do that because we're going to have problems with that because we're right these loans and and these guys don't have great credit anyway. Their interest rates are really high and the government. Said how dare you you'd dirty racists. How dare you base the interest rate on? Someone's and previous credit history. How dare you you just hate the poor black Americans? No wonder they can't get ahead. Here's what we're GONNA do. We're going to set up a special program for them and they are going to get that program through us and we're going to ensure that the interest rates stay low on those particular loans and you're going to be required by law to write a certain number of high risk loans to poor minorities in the inner city who wouldn't otherwise be able to get loans Baxter scratching their hand. They're just like listen. We still don't think this is a very good idea but we got an idea. We're going to bundle all those really crappy loans From the low income likely to likely to end up going into foreclosure type of people. We're going to bundle those with some really good loans and then instead of keeping those loans in house at our bank which was how it was done before we're going to sell them off on Wall Street and that that way. We absolve ourselves of the responsibility if they fail. Wall the same time making a little bit of money on the sale of those loans and the transfer of of those loans and over time this just got bigger and bigger and bigger and banks started realizing. Oh you know what. The government's got these great loan programs. We basically we can just we can write all the loans we want to Wall Street can't get enough of them will sell them and and off the Wall Street and it blew up into the housing collapse of two thousand and eight. That's how the housing collapse happened guys. Eventually the government government came out with their acorn loan. You know what the ACORN loan was. It was a stated income loan. Meaning if you only made fifteen thousand dollars a year and you wanted to buy a half half a million dollar home. All you had to do was tell people you made a million and a half dollars a year. No credit check no bank account check no payment no payment aim at receipts you just stated it stated income. The government were the ones who created those programs. The banks were complicit but you remove the risk from the bank. All they had to do is write. The loans. Government wants us to write the loans. They're going to call US racist if we don't write the loans. So why wouldn't we. We're just going to bundle them up and ship them off to Wall Street and let them deal with it. Government was the reason we had a housing collapse. They remove the risk and this retard is standing on stage. Claiming redlining was the fact that we don't subsidize black homes. The truth doesn't matter though in truth doesn't matter and that's that's what you know at the end of the day. It doesn't the only reason we talk about it here because I want you to know how ridiculous it is but this this is Elizabeth Warren's constant and perpetual argument as that the ills of the world are the result of government inaction winning reality it is government action that has caused most of the problems that we see in America today. Not all you crony. Capitalism is a very real thing there are there are very bad people out there who are constantly making choices and hurting others and there needs to be a way for you to be able to be made whole if something like that happens. But we don't have a country where government works for the people and against the corporations. We have a government and a a society today where the corporations and government work together to ensure that whatever happens the corporation ration- still maintain a power and wealth and power and government is constantly increasing. There's by convincing you. That what you need to do is centralized control and power with them. Let me finish this when I built the housing plan. It's not only a housing plan about building new units. It's a housing plan Dan about addressing what is wrong about government sponsored discrimination. How we need to? We need to say we're going to work you know what are the implications of this whole racist. Narrative is that there's no black people in positions of wealth and influence in the housing housing in the NFC thing affiliated with housing that it's an entirely white populated area. Because it's like if you look at these arguments the the whole white supremacy argument like they're making the exact same claims that actual white supremacists are. They're just white supremacist. Saying this is a good thing and the anti white supremacist. They're saying it's a bad thing but they're all claiming this is these systems. The systems of democracy only worked for white people. They're not gonNA work for black people you have to make you have to make exceptions for them to work for black like people you know all of our systems. They only on provide their only occupied by white people. White people are the only ones that the top echelons of society it's all. It's all horsecrap. But they're making the exact same case if you if you take the morals out of it they're both describing the exact same world. White supremacist and anti white supremacists and and that has been the narrative for decades generations of blacks have been taught that whites are in positions of power. There are no oh blacks in positions of power therefore the only way for you to get ahead is to elect someone who will mandate and punish the people people who are keeping you from getting your just do in this world. Yeah you can't get ahead on your own. The only way you can get ahead as if you let us help you get a correct. And that is Warren's position on everything is that it is governments it is government that will solve this problem. Government is the only one who can do it and in fact anything that is broken. Rocca is because government didn't act and the truth is far different but again the title the show today. Dale is with Warren's presidential campaign is over it is she she cannot She's been bested by two people on the debate. Stage last night And the her. She is not going to be able to continue to carry the narrative that she's had to this point and the problem with it as she is. I anchored her entire political campaign to this medicare for all universal health care and untaxing and soaking the rich. Neither of those are going to be effective. Neither of those arguments will carry the day because unlike what most people believe. Democrats are not all poor indigent people. There are a great number of them who are upper middle class as we said before the middle class is going away. Two thirds of them are moving up only a third of them moving down and the democratic narrative is going to have to change if they want to hope to maintain any sort of control moving forward because they're going to have to start art appealing to that two-thirds that's moving up and not the third. That's moving down. I've been Really closely following Silicon Valley twitter on the major movers and influencers in Silicon Valley. And it's been really surprising. How vocally outspoken? Even the one who don't really talk about politics at all have vocally outspoken. They've been against the idea of the wealth tax. That was when she crossed the when Louis Warren crossed the Rubicon was proposing this wealth tax. Because it's it's fundamentally fundamentally different than any other type of tax in that it will Well this isn't a unique thing about it but it's fun only fundamentally different than than these other types of taxes because you don't work around it and it will decl. Revenues will cause revenues to decline over time. So if your idea is we're gonNA have these massively expensive programs and then we're going to. He's a wealth tax to fund it. This wealth tax by its nature will create declining revenues. Because people will stop putting themselves in position to be affected by wrecked correct. So if your idea is funded this program that's going to get more expensive over time with this revenue vehicle. Yeah vehicle that gets less over time. It's it's absolutely complete madness so you may even be able to completely soak all of the existing wealth even if you have you can use massive exit exit taxes to get people who are trying to offshore all their wealth. Even if you do all that great fine you funded it for another couple years. But now you've just killed the future generation of investment investment in your country. You have all of those people are going to be gone. which is so?.

Amy's MOM's coming over yeah can hang onto nothing. Yeah I friends giving thing Go into this weekend so so. That's in the next week. I'm back to back to Kansas with the family to spend time. They're having a good time. Hope you guys are GonNa do something exciting for the holidays as well today. I want to I I I know a provocative headline done today show talk about Elizabeth Warren and this idea that her political presidential career campaign is over but after last night's Wednesdays it wasn't last night after Wednesday's performance. I don't think there's any way that you can come to any other conclusion that it's finished is she's going to drag it out until all the money's gone but the fact is is her political campaign died last on Wednesday night. If you want the honest truth about it a died a long time ago but I it was. It was always destined for failure. But I think very early early on this. This these were the these. Were the things that most of the media wanted to push. They love the idea of universal healthcare. Free College wish to wishing if you needed to know whether or not this was going to be a winning position or not just needed to look at Bernie Sanders. Last year Bernie. Sanders had a massive Asif amount of support for these ideas inside the Democratic field still was not able to muster enough votes to You know to become the nominee. Now I know they kinda on a screwed things up there at the Democratic Party and and they really they ensured that he wouldn't get it but he wouldn't have gotten it anyway right it. Just the corruption that existed there air Didn't didn't end up affecting the outcome. It just proved that they were corrupt. So in coming into two thousand and twenty twenty and looking at the field what you have and I. I don't know if any of you have noticed this. I'm sure it's been brought up because I stay off social media to a large extent Do you notice that the three front runners are too old white guys and an old white woman all of which are rich which Bernie Sanders millionaire Elizabeth. Warren multimillionaire Joe Biden. I think Joe Biden's the poorest among them and he now is worth what's Biden's net worth hang on the look this up gang definitely been a subject a conversation. I'm sure it has been I mean how can you. How can you not Joe Biden's net worth Fox business between five and ono more than fifteen million more than fifteen million in income after after two thousand sixteen. That's what I thought. So this is this is what's crazy folks is that he was one of the poorest people in Washington DC Ian net worth of something around three hundred thousand four hundred thousand dollars which I think was his house The the the value the equity in his home didn't have have much else other than that gets out of office after being vice president and in a few years makes him so about fifteen million dollars good for him. He is the exception to the rule. Aw when it comes to People getting rich in Washington bottom line is every one of the people on that stage. Save Mayor Pete who now has become become the front the early front runner as we move into the primaries all of them rich white an old the the very thing that Republicans have have been accused of being for many many years and I say that not to point out not to support the Republicans but just simply to point out. Look they're all rich old white. That's what they do that. It takes a long time to reach the level of power in Washington necessary to have this sort of influence that will let you run for president. We have very few exceptions of that Throughout history of people who are able to come in and perform relatively well. And I think it's going to be I look at the I'm staying about this in the pre show. I look at these debates. It's much differently than I think. Most people do most people tend to listen to what is set on the stage. They make an opinion about whether or not they like Mike. What was said or how it was said and that is based solely and completely off of war their own desires and wants? It's one of the reasons all these. Libertarians loved Tulsi Gabbard because her entire political positioning is Antiwar bring the troops home stopped for an occupation which we all love. She doesn't talk at all about any of the other stuff that she's in favor of that make all of us cringe which is pretty much everything else and so we tend to listen view through our own prisons. It is only a you have to really take a step back and one of the things things that I is that I'm always I don't I don't have any dog in this fight right. I don't want any of these people being elected to the to be the president. None of them. I think like all of them would be bad. That gives me a little bit of perspective to take a look at these debates and say okay based on my understanding of influence and communication in a facial expression body language that kind of stuff. WHOA WHO's doing well and who is it? And most people people don't try and take that perspective what they choose instead is to give their own opinion then they go out online and see what everybody else is saying and they find the trusted sources that they really like and those trusted sources naturally most likely have a unique perspective and people who watched the debate tend to meld their opinion with the opinion of those that they trust online. Now why is this important. It's important because when you become a person of influence you understand what is influenced the ability to the ability to modify our control. Someone's thoughts behaviors or actions. What people tend to want to do is to trust you enough to either assume your position when you state it or to Meld eldest with their own see? I will modify slightly what I believe based on what you are telling me because I feel as though you are a person qualified fide to give me my opinion. That's what every one of us should be looking for. We we should be the person who's influencing not the person being influenced and the only way to avoid that level of influence over your life is to constantly maintain a degree Korea of objectivity and luckily for me in these debates. I don't have a dog in the hunt. I just have people I like because I think they're doing it well and we're at talk a little bit about that today but one of the things. I was amazed by was how well Cory Booker did in in this in this particular debate he. He's shifted this debate to talking more and being somebody somebody at the Booker camp is listening to this. Show what have I said. I said you got to maintain a positive diff- perception and you've got to start talking about these things in terms of creating a more compelling future and right now most of the Democrat field is spending ending their days talking about how terrible trump is terrible things are and about how climate is destroying the country. How we're headed to hell in a handbasket and in cory booker comes out and starts talking about? How do we help? People capture that American dream again. How do we help them? Create wealth in their own lives. Now I admit I had to take a step back and ask myself. Do I like what he saying. Because I legitimately like what he's saying. Where or do I like it? Because it's the right message to attract the right people and I'm GonNa play some of the stuff place clips from from From the. Do here in just a second. But I want you to. I want you to really pay attention to the way. Elizabeth Warren is attacking the issues. And what she's saying versus what Cory Booker is saying. So we're going to start off with for anybody who hasn't been watching this some of you don't and that's okay. I want to bring you up to speed on this award. WE'RE GONNA talk about Warren's position on taxing the rich this is what she thinks is ultimately the right thing to do for those people who have made a lot of money in America. Here you go doing a wealth tax is not about punishing anyone. It's about saying built something greatness country good for you but you did it using workers all of us help. Educate it did it using your getting your good install on roads and bridges. All help pay for it. Did it protected by police firefighters. All of this help pay the salary sport so when you make big when you make really really big when you make a top one tenth of one percent big pitch in two cents. So here's the first problem with that argument. So she's making she's actually making a very compelling argument for the demographic that she's appealing to which is the assumption also is that all democrats are poor. Four th that's an incorrect assumption that the bulk of people who pay who elect Democrats are poor blue collar workers or the indigent which is also a gross fallacy. I'd say if you took the average net worth of all Democrat voters average net worth of all Republican voters it would skew very Korea heavily on the on the Democrat side. I would agree with that right. So she's she is appealing to a very small subset of of the people in America. Who Don't have very much? And she's also appealing to a bias that she believes exists in the American people that that Richard Terrible people that the rich got where they were by using others and that thou now they need to pay more now the reality the situation is that if you got very very successful in this country she says well you you edging used workers educated at educated hated in our school system that we all paid for. Yeah we did pay for that. I paid for it. You paid for it and the guy who made a billion dollars paid for it. Guess what right. He was able to do more with something that we all paid for. He had the same opportunities. He had the same sort of the same sort of resources sources at his disposal that everybody else in America had he was just able to do more with it. That doesn't mean that. Now you get to come back and punish punish him for that she does not about punishing people it is about punishing people. It's about saying you've made too much. You did too good in this country. Yes I know we all paid for the same stuff and we all Kinda had the same chance to get ahead But you actually did it and so now that you did it it. We're GONNA COME BACK AND WE'RE GONNA punish you for doing.
"presidential campaign" Discussed on Crooked Conversations
"This is Lisa crooked contributor, author of books and lover of coffee. And this is the first installment of on the brink women who are on the edge of making history. Our first guest is my Rupert who has owned the third black woman to run a presidential campaign. And if successful she would help elect the first let know president of the United States, I'm so excited to bring you this conversation where my and I talked about her rice to become campaign manager of a historical precedential run how she is running secretary Costas campaign differently. The pressure of being the only and why she's in powered by the responsibility of opening doors for others. We hope you enjoy. Thank you so much for joining us. I'm so excited to speak with you. You are one of the women that we want to talk to because you're on the brink of making history. And we are just so excited to speak with you to. Thank you for joining us. Oh god. No seriously. Thank you for inviting me, I'm really excited for this to awesome. So my you are one of the only black woman, and certainly the youngest to be a campaign manager for presidential hopeful. And I was I was kind of looking into some of the stuff that you've done before. And you haven't worked on a campaign before is that is that like a normal thing to not have worked in a campaign before. And then have like the biggest rule in a campaign of what was your journey to get here. I will say I definitely don't think it's it's normal. But I've actually found that I think that my path has been hugely beneficial to me, I will say I can talk. A little bit about the journey, and then a little bit about why I think it's been helpful. So my background right is not an electoral politics. It's in sort of social Justice movement broadly. I've worked in racial Justice. I, you know, right before I rejoined secretary. I was I worked for the center for reproductive rights. I I've worked for LGBT rights organizations. I worked for the National Center for lesbian rights for a number of years. And so I have you know, kind of background in, you know, well, not electoral politics, definitely sort of movement politics, and that I think has been hugely beneficial. I think that the social Justice movement is actually the way we tend to do work as a movement is actually hugely instructive for the way that electoral politics can work and truthfully I think the way that it should work in the way that people are hungry for a tour. Right. So. I think that a lot of the ways that we approach issues within the social Justice movement sort of understanding that no issue operates in vacuum. And that they all worked together to impact the way people actually experience issues is something that's really valuable for politics to keep in mind. I think very often we look at like a political platform as one issue, you know, kind of rising to the top of number of buckets as opposed to, you know, a system of things that work together to either to that potentially could give people greater opportunity and improve people's lives. So one of the things I've been really excited about working secretary Castro is that that's how we kind of approached, you know, kind of policy-making, right? The our theory has been let's engage in policy making the way people experience policy, which is very much a social Justice principle, but not so much one in electoral politics. So I think there are some of those shifts that people are really ready for that that really for me have come. Holy out of working and movements where you know, you're working on a particular issue. But you also have to recognize that, you know, there are a lot of intersecting issues that impact a person's experience, and so bringing that lens to bear in the political world has been really really beneficial. Right. Yeah. No. And I think that anything that's there's a lot that we can learn for from how people build campaigns like grassroots campaigns around issues, which don't often show up in or at least. I haven't seen him really show up in in a big way when it comes to campaigns to elect people, and there's I I agree with you. There's a lot that we can learn from how grassroots movements build campaigns. Because that is what we're doing. Right. We'll building campaigns around issue. So that exile sense to me. Yeah. So you have a big task at hand right in helping to elect the first Latino precedent and doing Ed as as a black woman. How
