State and Local Republican Parties Are Turning Ever More Toward Trump
"January six dr day history of the united states cap president trump is spoken many times since we left office. And i don't know if we'll ever see. But i will always be proud of what we accomplish for the american people over the last four years in new hampshire this week downplaying his differences with president trump Over the course of their partnership president trump of course returned to the stage last night as well with that speech in north carolina. Talk about it on our roundtable. We've got rahm emanuel donna. Brazile wall street journal columnist jason ryan riley a senior fellow at the manhattan institute and author of new book. Maverick a biography of thomas sowell and former libertarian member of congress justin amash and carson let me begin with you. The new york times is an interesting analysis of president trump this where they call them diminished but dominating at the same time of course. He had to give up basically his blog this week. He's still has a hold on the republican party. You serve with a lot of republican members of congress. How do you explain it. What republicans do about it well over the last couple years. I've really seen it. Take off. When i first got to congress. I could see this nationalist sort of starting to swell and by about two thousand fifteen. It took hold of the republican party in in a pretty big way at first members of congress when donald trump took office were doubtful about him. They would make fun of them in private. They'd criticize him They'd insult him. Even i thought they going too far and i was a big critic of donald trump and i couldn't believe some of the things that were said about him and then around two or three years ago around the beginning of twenty nine or so. I saw people really start to shift and the party really became donald trump's party completely and that's going to be the way it is over the next few years. I don't think. I don't think we're going back to a different kind of republican party.

"rahm emanuel" Discussed on KOMO
"From ABC News. If this week here now she banker George Stephanopolous. I'm fine with being kicked off of my committees because it be a waste of my time. You know who I am? I'm a very hard worker, and I'm proud of it. So now I have a lot of free time on my hands. Which means I can talk to a whole lot more people. All over this country. I'm gonna be holding the Republican party accountable and pushing them to the right. She said a green there, the Democrat Republican member of Congress who was kicked off her committee's by a majority in the Congress this week, all the Democrats plus 11 Republicans after a serious of statements supporting the Kun on conspiracy theory, even Suggesting the assassination of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. One thing we're gonna talk about on our round table with Sarah Isgur, veteran of the Trump administration, now political analyst for CNN and the dispatch. Straining Greer, professor of political science at Fordham University. Our team, Rahm Emanuel and Chris Christie and Sarah Let me begin with you. You just saw Margery Killer green. They're basically clean. This vote is a badge of honor. So what's so interesting is that Democrats traditionally would lose seats in 2022 because their party controls the White House. But somehow Republicans have managed not to deal with this in their own caucus allowed Nancy Pelosi to get every Republican on record. As either supporting or not supporting Marjorie Taylor Greene the ads right themselves in the next couple years now. What's so frustrating, though, is that this incentivizes this exact sort of extremism behavior. Republicans tried to do it with Ellen Omar. And now Democrats are trying to do with Marjorie Taylor Greene and we have seen these freshmen Congressmen come in, not hire legislative staff. They're just hiring communications staff so that they can continue to get attention and move further and further to the extreme. It's terrible for our country. It's terrible for our politics. And yet once again, we see it working really well individually for the parties. Rob you served in the house was. Is this president something Democrats should have been worried about what the president of I'm sorry, George say they got kicking and you're taking action to kick her off the committees because the Republicans wouldn't do it themselves. No. Well, first of all, they should have done it themselves like they've done with Stephen King. They should have taken actions before and the fact of the matter is, I think they should go farther. I mean, like the Senate with Joe McCarthy in the fifties century. I think there is no place no space for anti Semitism on for it to be espoused as an accepted. I mean, the fact of the matter is, it's not just the face of the Republican Party. That's a perception. This is a cancer in our society represented and you have 200 plus members of the House Republican caucus supporting that and defending it. Look. Two things that I think are really, really important. In our party. We had a debate in the primary between the revolutionary wing that wanted to big both things versus reformers, Reformers one and the party's behind them. You have in the Republican Party of battle between conservatives and people that believe in conspirator in conspiratorial theories and the conspiratorial theory, which is why Sarah's upset is winning. Back in the sixties, Bull Connor set the dogs on civil rights demonstrators a year later. Lyndon Johnson passed major civil rights legend, loose legislation and a debt and a generation later. That same party nominated Barack Obama. The Republican Party took a step back this week. Rather than deal with anti Semitism in their mitts. Ah person who has spouse ratios, racism openly. They actually embraced that person as part of the big tent. They are house Republicans. Step in. Yeah, the house is probably House Republicans mishandle it, 100%. Just because you can't have you can't have morals out call from or moral certainty and moral judgment when you accommodate people who take views that are totally repugnant to the moral space. Chris Christie did House Republicans with handle it. Listen, George, I just don't think it's someone who had a wife who was two blocks from the World Trade Center on 9 11 who? Both of us who lost friends.

Interview With Ben Shapiro, Author Of How to Destroy America in Three Easy Steps
"With US co founder Of the daily wire. Ah, host of the Ben Shapiro Show number one New York Times bestseller. His latest book is How to Destroy American Three Easy Steps. Ben. He wrote this book. And we're in the middle of this. We seem to be dead Set on destroying America. Did you give everyone a blueprints or something? I am glad that I cannot take responsibility for it. I did not give them will bring. But I won't say that. When I wrote the book in the summer January, I figured out the relevant I didn't think you'd be quite literally been quite this quickly, like all the all the syndrome that I was talking about taking the country broke out into the open at once. So, you know, forget about the gun violence. What? You talked about the civil unrest in Philadelphia in Oakland in Portland in Seattle in New York City in Austin in Albuquerque. And And in Kansas City. What's going on here? I mean, what we're watching right now is a variety of movements, all pretending, t be about civil rights and moving the country better and then all immediately about making the country worse, But they're really about Castigating America as uniquely horrible castigating America systems as repositories of privilege and evil and saying that those systems need to be torn down. Whether you're talking about black lives matter. Rioters in Los Angeles or New York or Washington, DC, or the top men and rioters in Portland or in Seattle. We're watching in the end is sort of a lion's that says that the United States is bad. It's just that the bleeding spear of an ideology That that claims that the United States of systems are unworthy of continuing and need to be tor now out at the root, and there's a reason that Nicole Hannah Jones is very proud, she said. This on Twitter that did it that count 16 19 project and tackle editor of The New York Times. At this point, she said, on Twitter that she was happy. The people were suggesting that what happened in New York and L. A in Washington, D, C and all over the country that was 16 19 riots, meaning that her perspective on the United States namely that it was rooted in evil. And it's inseparable from that evil. That perspective had taken such hold. Now let me ask you Does that come up in the interview? Hi. How you doing? Tell me about your background. You seem to be a good writer and your view of America. It's terrible needs to be disassembled. And what based on slavery? I think you're the perfect person. We have a column. Feed it right. And we have a news division for you to lead so to prove bench appeal. You're right. I'm looking at, uh Ted Lin Seth. He is somebody who is A, uh, African American activist. He said Oregon is white is hell. Uh, he said that He warned that the black guys, Ah matter movement in the city is being co opted by quote privileged white people with their own agenda. It is not our agenda and double a C P is saying the same thing. Why are you telling us what we need again? If it is a white black thing? Why we, depending why are white people taking the lead is not the ultimate insult, telling black people What they need for justice. Late is pretty incredible. But even it goes back to this view of racism that is actually pushed by people like you bring Candy and Robert Angelo and Kenny, Of course, the author of how to Be a racist and from the Beginning and Financial of the author of My Fragility, their View of the United States that the United States is on only racist, But the racism is embedded in all of its systems. And so the way to you identify raising them. Is not how we used to identify racism used to be. You could pretty easily tell who's the racist who ever thought that there was inferiority or superiority based on racial race, right? That was the definition of racist well, Now they changed the definition. They say Any system that create any sort of racial inequality or results in any sort of racial inequality is a racist system. And if you don't want to tear down the system You are racist. Not only that, if you're a white person, you bear all responsibility for this so nobly bears responsibility for the success of white privilege to have lived under and propagated this particular system. What That doesn't mean that white people are still in charge. And the white people are the are the people who have you know, in the sort of old Runyon Kipling phrase that the white man burden to fix the entire system. And so what That means that the views of people of color actually don't matter. The only ones that actually matter are the views of people like Robin D'Angelo was going to cure the country of Whiteness and hat and take on the past in of the United States, So that's why you see these bizarre videos of these white protesters lecture and black ops about what America needs on racism. But I also find her standing, too, is the place they're just overrun with gun violence. And that, of course, is Chicago with great Rahm Emanuel rained and left with his tail between his legs but came out with his chest high with his with his chin in the air in his chest pumped out as if he was a great victor. So because the president did states actually did what he said he was going to use his Listen. I'm gonna send some federal help in there. To not to handle protesters on the Christopher Columbus statue. No, but to find out about these guys. Gangs there were running rampant and the sub gangs that are killing each other. They're shooting each other at funerals at funerals. And here's the mayor. Who blames it on who blames this whole thing on the president's and his willingness to cab federal help cut seven I've drawn a very hardline will not allow federal troops in our city. We will not tolerate unnamed agents, taking people off the street, violating their rights and holding them in custody. That's not happening here in Chicago, so I've drawn a very, very bright line. I've made that very clear to every federal authority that I have spoken with. And they understand that if they cross that line We will not hesitate to use every tool at our disposal to stop troops and unwanted agents in our city. So this woman who should be begging for help with 117,000 gang members, 55 known gangs 747 factions, and they say there are 2500 subsets of those major gangs. You think this won't be begging for help? Instead, she's drawing the line and went through. When push comes to shove, she'll take down Columbus a statue. What planet are we on, Ben? We're on a planet where one of the one of the tactics But that's being used by mayors across the country who are on the left is something that unauthorized infront Eagle, who would the counter of City Institute hey called the riot ideology. The basic idea here back in the 19 sixties, and that was the riots or sometimes useful because politicians will use them as a way to club the citizenry into essentially giving the rioters what they want. So Marion Barry technically did this in Washington, DC He wouldn't work with people outside the governments who are protesting, but actually, we're in Aged in violence, and then he would basically say that the taxpayer to do all these people will stop here to the five things you need to do this something John Lindsay in New York City during the 19 sixties. He basically said the way that we can help alleviate the underlying problems here and do all the things we want you to do. Well, if you're a leftist politicians, you have two possible sort of solutions here. One is that you surrender to the protesters simply because You are afraid that they are more work than you are. And that you're going to be castigated is insufficiently weapons. And at the same time you can go to the citizenry consideration. We can alleviate all these problems. All you have to do these things. I want you to know you're starting to see hints of this nationally. By the way, you're starting to see writers say things like, you know, it's awful. This is Trump resign tonight. You're saying that part out loud, Which is it? This whole thing is about you wanting what you want, and you're only going to stop this democratic elected So essentially, you're threatening the law abiding citizens of the United States. You're going to continue violating law and wrecking major cities and shutting down major cities in six PM and curfews unless you get what you want. Well, that's never believe him. Ocracy is operated and no democracy can operate under those conditions. So, Ben, do you get the sense in looking at your book? There are reasonable people in the middle that understand when a mayor Lightfoot says things the way they do way, understand that these liberal mayor's saying, this is going to be the summer of love in Portland and then see the ransacking of a city like we're seeing, and now we see it re re igniting in Seattle. So when do you get the sense that there's a majority of Americans who who don't care about the politics but a logical enough to see the problem? So I think that most Americans, definitely the problem. I think the biggest problem right now is that the media is such an incredible job of making intimate. Everybody's focusing on President Trump that they've ignored the real problems that are played in the country right now, and they're downplaying it purposefully in order to convince Americans that none of this is happening, how you get that, during that quote, where, he says there's no such thing as in chief of violence. And the only way that you could do that number one of your delusional but number two. If you really think that you could get away with that, and the media decided point again, which they have been playing, So do I think that the vast majority of Americans are happy to go along with us. No, I think the best majority Americans know that this is nonsense. But I think that the polarization around the election is so effective and so effective around President Trump. This is the media have basically been able to make this a referendum on Trump as opposed to a referendum on violence. And this is why it's very important to President Trump be incredibly focused last 100 days of this campaign he really needs Prevent the media from using distraction in order to avoid the logical conclusion here, which is that if you actually want this stuff to stop and not paid to rioters and looters and protesters, then what you actually need is somebody who is going to affect you wait longer. The president needs to make that message inescapable until you can offer the sort of distraction that maybe sometimes I wonder if you know one thing I have to say he's been pretty discipline. I thought he had a very good week last week. He definitely saw the change in messaging, and I do think 99 days in this In this world we're in is a lifetime. I agree. I agree. I think last week was much much better, and we just need to see that we just need to see them and we don't want this to become you know that that image from the Simpson nations work actually read that back to zero. Instead. What we just want is consistent level of solidity coming from the White House looking people have been, I think, begging for this from the beginning because President Trump's policies are actually quite popular. And when President Trump 16 script that he is quite popular, the problem is that he hasn't so if he can actually being here's the discouraging part. He's down in the polls. The encouragement He performed about badly de cluttering will have three months and just not not in terms of policy. But in terms of stuff he's been saying would mean that this is a low water mark, and you're going to see him rise in the polls are gonna start to see things tighten up a little bit at the very least before the election, and if he's disciplined, and if he can point to this he really has to do is point you say well, what Democrats are supporting worst. Joe Biden condemning these riots. Worthy. He's hiding in the basement. Where is it? You want to do an interview? Chris Wallace, it Trump can do that and be consistent about it. Then I think this election's been tied up with her. But I just think that we're not looking at Barack Obama had 5 48 years old with his his eloquent speech and promises that he couldn't fulfill. But you say Well, pretty talented guy, Bill Clinton. He had all his personal problems. But man, can he speak, and he certainly was comfortable on a myriad of issues. No one doubted his intellect. But when you look at Joe Biden, he's the worst candidate that I have seen in my lifetime. And if President Trump can close the gap and force him to actually campaign That would actually be an exponential gain for him. I mean, no question. I mean, Joe Biden is an extraordinarily we candidate who's being benefited by two particular circumstances. One Kobe has made it so he doesn't have to go out and campaign is actually benefiting him tremendously. He just gets to stay home and talk to friendly's basically was really nice for him. He doesn't have to demonstrate any level of potential energy. It all on number two is the fact that he's campaigning. As I said before, essentially the dead person. He's basically what you're saying. I am. A tree stump. And you don't like trump to vote for the tree stump. And so that makes it really a referendum on Trump, which means that this is very much about hands from shift the burden of proof back to buy as opposed to letting it sit on his own shoulders. So then, Lastly, you write the book how to destroy America in three easy steps. I felt as though I am well the book by just reading the news. Unfortunately, if the word destroyed does work, and it is getting, I think it's beginning TTO unnerve our allies. What's happening in our country right now. What is the element that we could see around the bend that would make you believe that we are on that path that we have not discussed yet? I think that the one thing that they would allow us to recover here is a renewed sense of what America's history is all about What the book really does juxtaposed to stations in the country. One is what I thought it's not really left right. So much of it is unions versus disintegration is Do we even want to be a country anymore? If we do we have to have a shared philosophy rooted in the declaration of Independence have assured culture rooted Masonic institutions like churches. And school that values entrepreneurship adventure that values taking care of neighbor. And then if we and we all have a shared history, we have to have a belief that the United States actually an incredibly glorious place. That glorious place ought to be of help. If we don't have those things were gonna fall apart. I think that can be re invoke ated. You've seen Antifa. I mean, they don't. They don't seem to like you. They seem to show up with some of your speeches. Are you seeing their imprint on, especially over in Oregon in Seattle? Hundreds. I mean, you can see all the hall marks mean There's certain things you just look for visually raising both flags. You see the You see the red flags You see people who are dressed, own blast at the bicycle helmet and the goggles. You know this is it's perfectly obvious to everybody that he was deeply involved in very active in Portland for years reporter and you know, it has pointed out another action in Seattle as well. Look at what you're going to see right now. And this is the most predictable effect is a mass, a mass evacuation of major setting two years to see everybody who can afford to leave these nature city. But his major said, because who wants to live there? I want to pay inordinate taxes in order. Get shut down in 68 every night watcher business burnout. It doesn't come in a party today. I think figure I never sent right as a broadcast from New York City virtually alone. There is nobody here, Uh, Bank. Congratulations on the book. How to destroy American. Three Easy steps, continue to get the word out and continue not to take a step backwards. Thanks. Appreciate it.
Polls show Trump is losing to Joe Biden
"President trump, Joe Biden, spurring the economy, one of the areas where president trump still holds an advantage over Joe Biden. Let's talk about the race now on our roundtable joined by Chris Christie. RAHM Emanuel. Amanda Carpenter former top staffer for Republican Senators Ted Cruz and Jim Demint now congress at the Bulwark Anzor, Lena Maxwell senior director progressive programming for Sirius Xm author of the end of white politics. Welcome to all of you and Ramleh me begin with you Joe. Biden has about a nine point lead in national polls right now, leading in all the battleground states some Democrats. Now talking about going into George going into Texas, is that overconfidence. yes, and no I think on the straight point I always think. You have right now. Don't get confused with the national polls. They are very very good, but while he is the vice president is up in the battleground states. I would right now number one goal secure those top battleground states before you expand the field. Keep your eye on those opportunities that approach and I. Think Right now I wouldn't spiked the ball on the twenty yard line we. We know what happened. In Two thousand sixteen focus right now on securing Michigan Pennsylvania Wisconsin Arizona. Florida the in North Carolina. That's what I would do, and then look strategically about which of those opportunities right now you have an election. George were the American. People basically want a president who solves problems and not be the source of problems, and that's the Opportunity Democrats have right now.
Joe Biden says voters 'ain't black' if they support Trump, then apologizes
"You have a problem figuring out whether you're trump and you ain't black it don't have nothing to do with trump. It have to do the fact. I want something for my community. I would love to record van. You're saying he still hasn't shown you why you would vote for him. Specifically a black woman. Running me is necessary especially after the day when we see a black person voting for trump. And you know trump is the modern allowed people in this country. That does make you question how much that person cares about his people. So I understand the statement shop from a from a whole white male. Joe By some fallout from that tense interview between Joe Biden and radio host. Charlemagne the God it comes as Biden has acknowledged the next stage of the vice presidential. Vetting is about to begin. And so we thought we'd call on two of our own colleagues who have quite a bit of experience with that process as we debut a new segment on our program the powerhouse players with ABC News Contributors Republican Chris Christie and Democrat Rahm Emanuel they will offer insight and analysis like nobody else as the two thousand election ramps up and rum. Let's get right to it. You heard it right there. Joe Biden putting his foot in his mouth. He apologized for being so cavalier. But where does this go from here? Well first of all I think what it does is obviously influences. The vice presidential selection. Everybody that tells you. A dozen isn't being honest. It has an impact on a weight on the scale etc and I think the Biden campaign credit for mealy jumping on it and try to Deflated everybody is united in the party with a single goal of beating. President trump. I would step back though and say violated a simple number one rule. You have to project that you're gonNA earn every vote fight for every vote just like you're gonNA fight for this country and what this said underneath was. I'm going to get your vote no matter what I do. Because the other guy's worse than me. And that violates politics one on one but Chris. The trump campaign was immediately out with ads. Criticizing Biden does that continue sure. Of course it doesn't and here's the problem Ramadan. I've talked about this before. The Biden campaign should do everything they can to keep Joe Biden in the basement and stop talking because as soon as he starts talking he starts to create problems. He's in the phase of the campaign right now where it's really a referendum on the president unless he turns it into a binary choice and by doing things like he just did. He's turning it into a binary choice and rob complements the Biden Campaign for defusing it. They've had plenty of practice in trying to defuse these things and they're gonNA play anymore. I suspect in terms of the impact on the vice presidential pick. Though I hope it doesn't impact it because if it does he could take himself down the McCain Sarah Palin route which is not the place he wants to go in my view. This is a first. Do No harm pick for Vice President Biden and run by was already under some pressure to choose a black woman as a running mate. He says multiple or under consideration. Does this increase the pressure? In the likelihood he will choose a black woman. It adds weight obviously To that effort and I think you know I believe in I think you have to look at the history of Vice President. Used to pick a vice president. One do no harm to balance your weaknesses whether it's geographic or ideological when President Clinton picked Al Gore. Jason Southern Moderate Tennessee Arkansas. He Changed The paradigm from balance to partnership. And I think you look at it. It's not like George Bush had worry about Wyoming or president or Senator Barack Obama had to worry about Della Gore's electoral votes. They answered a political part of the equation. But they also added a partnership Element I think in the end of the day the most important vetting after you get to the final three will be president. Senator Vice President Joe Biden. See this person. His partner in making these critical decisions and that to me will be the element that amounts. Because when you look at Sarah Palin she did not fulfil John McCain's message themes and who he was as a character and it became apparent to the voters. This was an impulse. Joyce real choice of a partnership and Chris Biden has committed to selecting a woman. Does that box some in? Was that a good idea. Well listen it's his call right and what it does is it eliminates about fifty percent of the population. But that's his call. I think that you know here. It's even more Stark Martha and Robin mentioned. One thing that I think is very important. Joe Biden if elected will be seventy eight years old with a history of some health issues going into this. The American people are going to be looking a little bit different than a partnership. They're going to be looking at this person to say. Can I see this person as president even more starkly than they do with a normal vice presidential pick? I don't think anybody was worried about Barack Obama prematurely dying office. I don't think anybody who's worried about George W Bush in that regard and so looking at this choice. He needs to look at it that way as well given Senator Biden's vice president binds agent so of his history.

Trump's ambitious infrastructure vision faces Senate GOP roadblock
"President trump faces a clash with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and other Senate Republicans over the president's desire for a two trillion dollar infrastructure spending bill something he promised during his twenty sixteen campaign what's going on here here to explain is Alex Bolton senior staff writer at the hill Alex set this up trump earlier this week in Dorsey two trillion dollar infrastructure package of member during the twenty sixteen presidential campaign he blocked his opponent Hillary Clinton formally proposing something like two hundred seventy five billion dollars for sure after trump one thing big old robot that failed to materialize during its first three years in office now he sees an opportunity on on Twitter earlier this week you need to call in dollars but that is facing opposition from his allies in Congress Senate Republicans Mitch McConnell the Senate Majority Leader he's putting the brakes on a package that is emerging from the house he said look we need to wait for me to figure out what we need to do it would first need to address the direct economic fallout from the across the borders the crisis before going on to sort of more tangentially related policy priorities which is what infrastructure is yeah you said the the phrase there is tangentially related I guess Augustus of an infrastructure bill would had some benefit or spur vide some help to the economy during the pandemic well I mean we just are I mean just this week or more than there are more than six billion unemployment claims this is a an all time record on top of that more than three billion last week so in two weeks we'll see ten million claims for unemployment benefits that is the sky high record shattering all previous records so I think the thought or discussion right now this marks the record is that the need is going to be more media more acute than anything that two trillion dollars in infrastructure can address I'm sure instructions nice but we are in a crisis right now people need money to pay the bills pay the rent for groceries is infrastructure projects that said take an introduction you can take a year to two years perhaps longer to get the money on the economy that takes way too long and you know they remember the lessons from the two thousand nine American recovery and reinvestment act passed under president Obama during the last financial crisis that took a long time for those benefits to matriculated in a bombing that a lot of heat for the economy taking so long to respond speak with Alex Bolton senior staff writer at the hill his pieces called trump's ambitious infrastructure vision faces Senate GOP GOP roadblocks so at this point even though infrastructure might be beneficial to members of Congress coming up for election in November phase four of a relief for stimulus bill it might be more likely at this point well if the question is what's going to be in the face for stimulus bill and Nancy Pelosi the speaker and co chairman of L. conference calls this week saying they want infrastructure would be a major major component of that space for bill now what Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says that look this this is hello C. subscribing to the attic you over Obama Kerr chief of staff Rahm Emanuel bill number never let a crisis go to waste in other words you can use the crisis to achieve policy goals that you have been able to previously the instructor kind of falls into that category now only people she bills the president this is an opportunity to get a break through something that they've long wanted immediate pressure talks going on well before the coronavirus crisis and so I just think right now we're gonna include top sellers will consider it to be wrong with it because while it there are potentially long term economic to be sure to package it really doesn't address the immediate economic fallout of this coronavirus cases which as I mentioned has created a ten million unemployment claims in two weeks what is our treasury secretary Steve Mnuchin say about all this he seems to be the go between between say the White House and Congress these days well I mean he said in a recent television interview that he's at the grocery store Richard Neal with democratic chairman of the house ways and means committee and eagle east twenty to move forward so he would like to get this done and he doesn't need to have a bit of problem debt Republicans in Congress to do what I eat all you know that during the negotiations of the packaging to truly dollar perhaps two point usually about package we'll see what the dust settles when those negotiations were going on if some Republicans were critical writing we wonder what she'd do to this plane for

United We Dream Co-Founder Cristina Jiménez Discusses the Dream Act
"Did the Obama Administration failed to pass the Dream? Act THROUGH LEGISLATION. I think that this is such an important lesson even as we think about the future of this country and the election this year because it ultimately came down to two things one is this a priority for the administration. Who's in the White House into? What is the power that we really have to move this through Congress and you know Bama Ron Very pro-immigrant agenda promising? The Dream Act immigration reform. I remember knocking on doors for Obama. Biz Lavinia when you know. We were so inspired by him and when the face of came up immediately you see a shift in that even though he talked a lot about immigration and he's intention to work on it he deprioritize shoe and you know you hear things like Rahm Emanuel at the time chief staff saying Oh you know that they rail like do not even work on that right now and MS prioritize healthcare. But when that moment happens it's no longer a priority for the ministration and then when you look at Congress for one of Obama's terms you had both houses that were led by Democrats and sometimes people don't believe me at least yeah. They could have passed legislation at that point. They didn't because it wasn't a political priority. So that's one answer to your question. The other one is the for the second term. Not only that. He wasn't a priority but at that point the leverage that Democrats had had changed. Because then you had a Republican Senate and when you look at twenty ten with the vote on the Tremont the House of Representatives under the leadership of Nancy Pelosi passes the bill and then in the Senate. The bill folks shore a five votes and those votes were from Democrats. The we had had moderate Democrats voting with US quite frankly many undocumented a young people will be citizens right now including myself and my brother and many others that are part of the United we dream so what I'm trying to say here is that it is in the Senate where we have to have a real talk about. Our power and moderate Democrats are now with us on this issue. So let's talk about the success. You have had convincing the Obama Administration to issue an executive order bypassing Congress. How did you do it going against all conventional wisdom so at the moment we said especially after the lesson of the Dream Act Voting Twenty? Turn when we were like okay you know. We may not have enough power yet to pass legislation. We have powered to hold the president accountable. And that's when we made the shift in the strategy to look at the president as a key decision maker. That could give us what we want. And we decided to ask the administration to stop the deportations of young people and many people within the establishment of the Democratic Party and even the advocacy sector immigrant rights. Were saying to us. Like you're crazy. Part of the pushback was that dreamers. Were the most sympathetic group that you did. Have all of this public support and that without you as part of the equation. It became harder car to do everything else. That's definitely one of the arguments that were made. You know there were other arguments that we should not put pressure on a friend that it was not strategic. You know it's not sophisticated enough. I remember hearing many people say task. They're young people don't know what they're doing their strategies not as sophisticated to counter the argument that you raise. Well we were saying was if we are able to have one win and protect some segment our community. We are increasingly building power to continue to win for more and as an organizer. We need victories to continue to organize and bill movements. There were multiple strategies There was a legal strategy where we work with lawyers to make the argument to the White House that this was within executive authority. The White House Legal Counsel Saito's No. It's not possible. Said yes it is possible. And here's all the legal expert on immigration. Who are telling you so. And then we had the people power pressure we showed up but Obama events and where he was speaking all over the country. I actually had this conversation with the president himself. I was in a meeting with him and this was after Dhaka and I said to him. You know like Dhaka was a huge victory for our community. My brother Jonathan was protected under Dhaka and so many young people were leaving now With less fear but I remember saint him but you know the petitions are still happening so we. We need you to stop this. He got you know a bed accessory did buy me Christine. I just gave you what you want. If exactly the nice say no but we don't stop there. We need more and you know the petitions were still happening. And I was saying like Mr President. We have so many people that are still getting the ported and what he said to me is what I need to do is organized your movement and your people to bring Republicans to the table. Because if I say that I'm not GONNA do rotations. They are not gonna come to the table so I need to do your organizing to Republicans and I need to continue to drive an agenda that where I am. I am seen in felt as tough on immigration enforcement and I will never forget the because he's administration ends with no immigration reform and so it was a miscalculation also from his part and the part of the Democratic Party who believe that that could be a winning strategy. Tell me about the moment you learned that President Obama was signed the executive order. Where were you I was in? La and We were actually getting ready to lead our next phase of escalation on this campaign which included a direct action in Downtown La and right before the evening in La. I get a call from You know my friend Governor Chaco. Who was working with United? We dream at the time and Representing us in leading the advocacy working. These see and she tells me it's going to happen tomorrow.

Trump sees his base growing from Democratic sparring
"What is the truck reelection campaign trying to get out of the democratic presidential candidates most liberal stances more support from working class and independent voters Gabby or a politicos here with more Gabby how is trump and his team portraying the more it liberal democratic candidates well they're definitely looking for opportunities to highlight the positions that some of these democratic candidates have taken that might have less appeal among voters in the ideological center voters who might not be supportive of president trump but are also reluctant to increase some of the more liberal or progressive tradition of these candidates so the watch for how the trump campaign reacts to moments when the candidates are asked to raise all of their hands and supported something moments when they're asked to elaborate on their condition something like the green new deal a twenty dollar federal minimum wage these are the policies of the trump campaign is really looking to see how how Democrats handle them and handle these questions and to capitalize on their answers which voters are the trump campaign trying to specifically target and in what areas of the country you know some can be an official who told me that their main goal is to win over union households and white working class voters who are in the rust belt region where trump while in twenty sixteen but who has been who didn't support him in twenty sixteen and might be reluctant to do so now their entire goal is to run a campaign that speaks to those orders and that's why you hear them constantly talking about the differences between free markets and capitalism and the trump administration's economic policies and socialism progressivism and the policies that progressive democratic candidates are pushing it's it's a message that they think will particularly resonate with those types of voter it's either a no union households individuals who working hard labor people who pay attention to politics that might feel as though they are disaffected and and are wary as you know major cultural changes happening in America we're speaking with Gabby or a politico Gabby you talked about the green new deal and the twenty dollar minimum wages being a couple of the issues that the Republicans are seizing upon as being out of touch with most Americans are there others that liberals are pushing that they're saying no way well if you go back to the last two debates that we had in in June if there was a moment where all the candidates were asked by the moderates what moderators whether or not their government health care plans would provide insurance coverage for undocumented immigrants and everything okay onstage to reach their hands and that is a moment that the trump campaign sees Dante tweeted it out they shared across social media the president talked about it they repeatedly referenced it in digital advertisements it's it's one of those moments where they sell as though the entire stage the entire cast of candidates with out of touch with what most Americans would would want and the and the policies of most Americans would embrace and it's not just the term campaign that feels that way Rahm Emanuel the the former chief of staff for president Obama and and mayor of Chicago a huge Democrat published an op ed in which he urged the Democrats to not fall into those tort sorts of traps again when you're out there espousing that will you know we need to provide health care for undocumented immigrants there are so many voters and specifically the kind that wishes referencing core at home watching these debates and saying why should we provide health care for it people who came to the country without authorization when I'm facing an eight hundred dollar or fifteen hundred dollars off your bill every month so he said that it is necessary for the candidates on stage to be very mindful of their responses and the ways that they might be able to attract voters in the Italy ideological center or repel them with the answers that they get thanks Gabby Gabby or politico

Progressive frontrunners face off at CNN debate which may also offer opening for centrists
"Democratic presidential primary voters face at least two big questions one is who they think can win in twenty twenty another is what each candidate would do if elected and tonight the country sees a range of possible choices here this debate like the last one features twenty candidates will be divided across two nights and by chance the first night in Detroit features all white candidates but there is some diversity of ideas two of the more progressive candidates arts center stage Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders toward the edges are more moderate figures like Colorado's John Hickenlooper NPR lead political editor to medical Montanaro will begin to try tonight to medical good morning good morning Steve how clear is it at this early stage what the party will stand for next fall well you know in this debate one I mean certainly you have when you look at that center stage which is organized by polling in the people who are on top in the polls you've got a socialist or democratic socialist and Bernie Sanders and someone who wants to make pretty radical economic reforms in Elizabeth Warren and the two of them have not shown that they really want to be going after each other very much and you know you noted the fact that this is going to be an all white stage and even though it's the most diverse in presidential history all the candidates of color are on night too and it's gonna be interesting to see how issues for example of race might come up yeah and we're certainly going to have an opportunity to find that out let me ask about those two central candidates they might be question from the edges you might hear a question from the likes of Tim Ryan John Hickenlooper who have a very different approach or say they have a very different approach to the economy and and other issues but what's the difference if any between those top two in tonight's group Sanders and more well in these are to progressive heroes and you've seen Elizabeth Warren gain on senator Sanders in the polls but when I talked to the Sanders campaign and and our reporters have done so as well in the center scams pretty clear that Sanders is not going to go after Warren he sees her as an ally in implementing progressive change but again they are competing for the same job in at some point they might have to draw distinctions if it comes down to the two of them Sanders points is friendship with her and working together there was a funny moment on CNN when Sanders was asked a week ago to say something nice about her and here was his response the son of the war and he is a friend of mine and I admire the fact that we have worked together over the years all on a number of issues anything specific well look we work together on a number of issues and she was a very good sort of okay keeping it vague but when you look at the things that they say that they would do if elected are there some differences there are I mean he's not someone who likes to concede any ground I would rather talk about big issues than about feelings but when you do dig inside some of the issues on them and just how far they would want to go in reshaping the country worn once big structural change but not socialism she calls herself a capitalist and on one area that hasn't been touched on much in this campaign foreign policy there are some big differences warn talks about how the defense industry for example should have a seat at the table but not on the table Sanders on the other hand has long time misgivings about American farm policy said that he would leverage aid for example recently against Israel calling it an extreme right wing government with many racist tendencies let me ask one other thing you mentioned race you mentioned the lack of diversity by chance in tonight's group but race is not just an issue for people of color it's an issue for white people and especially at this moment can you see ways that it would come up well it's certainly an opportunity for them to show unity against president trump because that has been something that has come up with this president and remember it be booted judges had to answer for his record in south bend as mayor in debate one it could be interesting to see if a question that comes back up tonight the medical thanks so much you're welcome that's an peers to medical Montanaro okay we're talking about this debate which could be a chance for Democrats to show unity against president trump but Democrats also face a related challenge how to reclaim the narrative from president trump he is dictated the headlines with racist tweets aimed for congressional Democrats followed by his criticism of the city of Baltimore let's talk strategy here with Matt Bennett he's executive vice president at the center left think tank third way he previously worked on former president bill Clinton's campaign among other campaigns and joins us now from Portland Maine good morning good morning so it is seems so far like many of these democratic candidates have have tried to put things towards issues like healthcare immigration the economy but then president trump provokes with racist tweets like we have seen that don't just demand some kind of response but they really monopolize the headlines so it in this climate what can democratic candidates do over the next two days yeah there's no question that Donald Trump is the greatest distractor in probably in human history and it is very difficult and we saw this in twenty sixteen when Hillary Clinton tried to break through with the economic plans another ideas it's just very difficult to get any oxygen when Donald Trump is using it all with his kind of distraction mechanisms of mostly on Twitter up but what Democrats have got to do is keep their head down and keep their eyes focused on the horizon they got a they got a just make sure that they are offering an articulating a narrative in a set of ideas to people that will resonate and will offer them hope in a moment when a lot of people are really struggle is that what voters want I mean to the polls tell you anything when you look at them to the primary voters or they craving substance or do they also want their candidates to take on the president and in moments like this well it's very interesting Democrats right now have both the game plan and a play book that was offered by bill twenty sixteen and twenty eighteen the game plan is you got a win in the upper Midwest Michigan Wisconsin Pennsylvania so it's voters in there the Democrats ought to be the most focused on the playbook was offered in twenty eighteen when we won the governor's races and all three of those states and we of course flip the house we want a net total of forty seats in lots of districts that look like places in those three states and the way we did that was offering people things that were concrete that answered the kind of kitchen table concerns about healthcare costs and about economic opportunity that is what we've got to do going forward I mean former Chicago mayor Democratic Party leader Rahm Emanuel wrote an open letter to the candidates saying they have to unite all primary voters at and that others in the past like Barack Obama like Bill Clinton were able to do that but but is that really the goal of all the candidates here I mean what how do you advise a candidate who you know wants to both unite but also has to set him or herself a part in a really crowded field that's a really hard job with twenty four candidates it's hard with two candidates we saw this in two thousand eight when really it was Obama versus Clinton and the differences between them were were very narrow sit offering distinctions between you and and the other person is real tough and that is one of the things that these candidates are gonna struggle with they'll do it and some with policy and then a lot with personality we saw after the first round of debates that some of the lesser known candidates got a lot of attention because of moments that they had in come challenging one another on stage will probably see some of that tonight tomorrow but the I think for people like me who are not picking a horse but are keeping our eye on whoever the nominee is being able to be trucked imperative for all of them is to focus on persuading people that may have voted for trump last time to switch up there's been some data that shows that eighty nine percent of the vote margin in the twenty eighteen races I talked about earlier came from people who switch from voting for trump devoted to the Democrat we have got to really focus on those people what is one specific piece of advice if you give to a candidate who is coming into this thinking to themselves I've got a hang on here I've got to be different I've got to distinguish myself I'm only gonna have maybe one or two chances with the camera you know focused on me but I also have to unite the entire party have you do all that with with like very limited time that's a pretty tall order but I think the the number one thing that people are wondering from come policy perspective is about health care cost ninety percent of Americans now of healthcare coverage and we certainly need to cover the other ten percent but it voters already know that's kind of priced in the Democrats want to get to universal coverage what they don't know is what do we think about how difficult it is to pay the bills the deductibles in the premiums in the copays in this price build focusing on health care costs will signal to voters that we or that candidate understands their life in a kind of fundamental way and it

Appreciate what he did for the city and you never doubted his heart that, you know, of course, not true cared about this city.

So now, he's accusing of course, Donald Trump of creating a hate filled environment in which juicy smell at thought that he could take advantage of a hoax about eight gripe. So now, it's Trump's fault. The juicy was doing this. He said the Trump contributed to a toxic vicious cycle pointing to the president's remarks about the two thousand seventeen Charlottesville rally where there were fine people on both sides. There were good grief. How many times we're going on what he was talking about the people who were protesting against taking down Robert E Lee staff. Wasn't talking about the Tiki torch idiots. Good grief says the only reason that jussie smollet thought that he could get away with this hoax about a hate crime is because of the environment President Trump created. So this is Trump's fault. Now, Rahm Emanuel said that Trump should stay out of this responding to the president's announcement on Twitter, the Justice department, the FBI would review smallest case. This is a president that drew a moral equivalency between people who are trying to perpetuate bigotry and those who are trying to fight back. No, he did not this has been. I mean, this is just crazy. How many times these people go? Well, they'll stay because they think they can get away with it. It is not true. But here's why the FBI is involved. Does everybody understand that when you send a threatening letter through the mail that becomes a federal crimes thereby understand this? Well, that's juicy smell.

"Great job. Rahm emanuel. The mayor of Chicago is going off about the mishandling. Now of the Jesse small at case on the part of prosecutors in Cook County who have dropped the charges against him for faking a hate crime against himself. Are you probably familiar with Rahm Emanuel? You know, certainly people around the mid west now when he was Obama's right hand guy for a long time. Have you ever flash that little stubby? You talking about one of his fingers. Anyway, so Rahm Emanuel is reacting like all of us are to this. Jesse smaller thing thinking, okay, how is it possible that they that the superintendent of police comes out and lays out the evidence that they have which isn't even all the evidence. They have that this guy faked eight how's it possible that now prosecutors are saying, well, we're gonna keep your bond ten thousand dollars in bond to keep that you're gonna do some community service. And then we're going to drop the charge you're not pleading guilty to anything. We're just going to wipe away. Everything. How is that possible? Even the assistant state's attorney in an interview today said we didn't exonerate Jesse small at we just had other things to worry about it a city like Chicago and Jesse small let doesn't constitute a threat to public safety.

"I want to bring in Jason but'real who is our chief researcher and a guy that has worked with me for very long time. And quite honestly, we're starting to find some things that are really spooky as hell. And I wanna talk to you a little bit about socialism. Because we found something, you know, when we were at FOX, we always talked about top down bottom up inside out. And we talked about how they did it to hungry. Well, Hungary, actually, I don't know how we miss this hungry was not the first place, the socialist tried it the communists, and they started calling themselves socialists intentionally and changed language the first place. They flipped was Czechoslovakia. And they did it within three years, and it was a pro free market civilization that wanted nothing to do with communism and they flipped it behind the iron curtain in three years. We've just found something that was never supposed to come out from behind the iron curtain. And we found the the original plan on how to do it. And you are not going to believe how much of it has already been done here in just the last few years. Also at that care thing in Chicago. This weekend. Who is the tallied played? She was speaking at the that the the care convention or hearing or whatever it was. And she was one of the keynote speakers, and she was talking about how. You know, we're here now, and we are in congress and yada yada, yada. And it was a pretty powerful pretty powerful speech. They also have had a plan on how to infiltrate and take the nation through HAMAs and Hezbollah and we've told you about this for a long time. However, we I believe we are in a very dangerous state even Rahm Emanuel in Chicago is saying you you have to sanction you have to sanction these people because it's getting really bad. Tonight at five o'clock, we're going to begin a dialogue with you on just congresswoman Omar and what we have found on. Congressman Omar, Omar is is should wake you up. If you are a democrat. And I don't mean a democrat in Washington. I just mean an average democrat new care about your country, you need to watch this you if you have a friend who's a democrat, you have a friend who is Jewish. You have a friend who's not an anti Semite should be all of them. Send this episode to them. This is a very important episode. Jason give me the just give us the headlines of of what we've what we're going to reveal tonight and how we're putting it together. So when you first when we first start talking about Omar I just wanted to like see like, I it's trying to find out where the origin of or anti-semitism was. So we just started looking at that. And the more and more I got into looking at that her like entire like stories this weird like spiral of crazy town yet. We we have to start the show tonight. And and what's crazy is we have to start with something that is not verified, and I hate doing that. But the AP has done investigations and the AP says this isn't right far as there's something wrong here. And it leads us to believe these things, but we can't verify any of them because she has. She has deleted all of it. Or she is. She won't answer any questions on it. But there's some scrapie things on how she and her family got into America that really need to be cleared up. Then that's just one. There's we're we're gonna look at three different things that are not verified right now that if it hit anybody else this it would be like national scandals. It'd be plastered all over the media, there'd be investigative journalists of the New York Times, Washington posts all over this Bill. They would these are big especially like, she refuses to answer to any of these scandals and not only that she's actually gone in and looks like deleted evidence that would have proved it otherwise. And there is evidence really good solid. Evidence says the AP is I mean, we're not just taking this from blog sites or something. We are looking at it. And what is the closest to verified? And even the AP says, this is really pretty strong stuff here. And she keeps delete. Reading these things. The perjury that she has committed on the way she or her brother or her husband came into the country. She testified on something and we have evidence tonight. That's an absolute total lie. And she knows it. And we're not the only ones who have said this. But we're probably the biggest ones to say this, and you need to see it. Because in the next chapter and the tonight's episode in the second tier, we go into her connections to HAMAs. Hezbollah. Care, all of these really really dark organizations, and yeah, you you talk about infiltration into the government. I I've never I've been looking at this for a while. And I've never seen it at the level. That is now there was a there was a shot of Linda Sarsour with a group of men last week when they went to go support, Omar when this vote was going down the antisemitism vote. So I sent I sent Jason a video that I found of Linda Sarsour, and this group of men going into congresswoman Omar's office, and it was really odd. And there was a a I think a former Muslim woman from the Middle East who was videotaping at her. She had her phone, and she was like, what are you doing? What are you doing? And they're blocking her and they obviously knew who she was. And she knew who they were. But I didn't know and I sent it to Jason. And I said Jason look at this. What what's happening? In here who are these people? I don't know if I should say now who that was because I don't want to spoil like this. This is insane. But the main person that's there. Let's just say he has been outed in court documents. He has been labelled as the FBI by the FBI as someone that supports. Roundabout way terrorism. Yes, I it's fully documented the organization that he's that. He is the head of. I don't know why people are talking about it today as far as what how they were established. And what their end game is what their goal is everyone seems to have forgotten. And I just can't believe like I would if I was the FBI or DOJ. I would be starting investigation today. Weird because I was I was listening to CNN today. They didn't talk about this at all. Did mention however that Donald Trump had a picture taken with the person who ran the spot chain that Robert Kraft went to like now, she didn't choose it currently run it. But she ran she opened it, and then sold it, and she hasn't been working there for a long time. But that is freaking believable. See this. When you see this tonight when you see this, you you will be much more angry at the mainstream media than you already are because this is locked down with an exception of the opening segment, which I will clearly say this part, we don't know because we can't get the information because she keeps the leading it. But we give you the very strong case. And a very strong case that is verifiable that she committed perjury on her way in front of an immigration court. And it's it's one hundred percent verifiable. So when we show that and then we come back after the break and show, you the second part, I'm telling you, you are going to know when when the president says the press of the enemy of the people, I am comfortable with that. I don't like that language, but when you look at what's happening here. And they are focused on somebody who owned a spa years before anything bad happened to it and Donald Trump took a picture with that woman. They are the enemy of the people that the enemy of the Republic because they're not doing their job if we had a bunch. I don't care if they were the best of pilots in the world that best fighter pilots in the world. If they were sitting on their bunks while a squad of sixteen from any other dangerous country were flying in if we had a bunch of guys the best in the world. Sitting at NORAD and they saw missiles launched from North Korea. And they were like, you know, what guys did you see what Donald Trump tweeted last weekend? They decided to go play games. I would say they were the enemy of the United States. Will that's the kind of misconduct that is happening right now. And that's just on this one topic. I wanna come back and talk to Jason about socialism. And what we also found this weekend. That is mind boggling, and we're preparing another special for that. And we'll give you some information on.

I just think music is probably a bit more decentralized. And so I think sexy, it's a sexy thing. All around think. Our Kelly case the reason why ignore for so long was because the victims were pretty powerless, and they didn't have running speaking for them. And so that's really why spoke up I have friends who are activists that. We're speaking out for those victims and a lot of people were ignoring them and the guy who wrote out in Chicago, we say, I learned the white guy. Right. And he was like I learned that black women are the least value women in society because when I was writing about this. No one cared. No one paid attention. So these victims didn't have the power. They didn't have the standing to get there. Get attention paid to to what happened to them. And so it was good that this documentary and proper attention to. Can we still play our Kelly at a party without be wrong? If I. I don't play me. Neither. Absolutely not out of my ipod. Checking your ipod on the list. I know even that's. But I still like it. So what about the governor of Virginia? I asked Rahm Emanuel. And we talked about it last week on the show, Malcolm Nance was here. And he said, you know, if you're going to talk about black outrage, maybe you should ask some black, folks. And I think those the status sided with rum. Fifty eight percent of African Americans in Virginia believe he should not step down, your feelings, your feelings, your feelings, your feelings. I think black people are shocked when we find out that folks, you might have done something like this thirty years ago, we're probably the least shocked, right? A little bit more pointedly because the conversation I was just visiting my friend who lives in Virginia and our conversation was like why people think black people trust them. I mean, it's our litmus test is we don't trust you. So we're constantly waiting to see if you're going to do what you said, you were going to do in this case in this case, I think that's part of why you see fifty percent of black Virginia's saying wintrust in the first place to John's point we want you to make good on what you said you were going to do which was eliminate voter ID discriminates us against in terms of our ability to vote disproportionately that you were going to do criminal Justice reform in the state of Jinnah. In other words, we want you to make good on what you said you're going to do. And we're gonna hold your feet to the fire. I also think it is absolutely right for black people to be outraged.

And if you are having trouble kicking it it could be that. You just don't have the right vegetable and fruit nutrition in your system. That's why about four years ago. I started to try balance of nature, and I have not been the same sense. See I was experiencing the worst flu of my life. And I called Dr Howard. And I said doc, I've heard all about them. But I want to see how they work he prescribed me a large portion of them to go immediately and recharge my immune system. And since that time, I have been able to.

"Steph done very well. No longer little banana. Yeah. Okay. Well, now, you might become now that people figured it out. All right, Ben, this is a this is a very interesting story that there were a certain group of city employees today that were called into work, even though their business was closed. So yesterday, you had that press conference with Rahm Emanuel and other city leaders calling this cold the public health risk pointing out that it's life threatening. And nobody should go outside unless they absolutely have to while we are thankful to our police officers and firefighters and water department workers who continue to work in this extreme cold. But one group of people you would think wouldn't have to work when there's no school crossing guards. Oh, gee, but they reported for duty this morning on. Oh, I guess the premise was, you know, there was some concern that not all kids would would get the message that school was closed, and you know, it would be kind of on their way wandering. To school and somebody should be there to keep an eye and early on. We're the schools open now for the buildings open. No. So if the kid as you walked over this, we're open, and I guess you could argue the crossing guards would would point the kids in the direction of you. You know of a place that they could go if they didn't have any other options. But yeah, these poor folks were outside this morning in that bitter cold as wind chills down to forty fifty degrees below zero.

"But this is Massachusetts. Left wing state. So the likelihood is whoever succeeds him will also be a democrat will support ObamaCare. Oops. A Republican won in one of the reasons. Scott Brown won that race. Because even the citizens of Massachusetts felt that ObamaCare was too far. At that point Obama, very practical. Decided to call in the dogs. Rahm Emanuel, his chief of staff also felt that ObamaCare was a bridge too far, and he was willing to reduce the planned substantially the reason that didn't happen. The reason we ended up with ObamaCare is because of Nancy Pelosi. Nancy Pelosi told Obama to buck himself up. We can get this done. We'll figure out a way don't go small go big or go home. And that encouraged him and encouraged some of the other Democrats, but for Nancy Pelosi, we don't have ObamaCare and she stressed with him that not fulfilling a campaign promise would be a huge problem for him going forward. Why is it any different with President Trump one of his signature promises was to build a wall? He doesn't do it. He's a loser. Nancy Pelosi believes if we exceed his demands. He'll be able to walk over us all the time. And that's where we are. Right now. But pelosi. Among other people above probably anybody else would understand the pressure politician is on to fulfill a campaign promise. And what happens if you don't feel fulfill that campaign promise, and sometimes you have to persevere to fulfill that campaign promise, it's exactly what Donald Trump is doing. Donald Trump has taken the same advice. Pelosi gave Obama. Buck yourself up persevere, we can get this done that we have to pass the Bill. So that you can find out. What is in it? The trashing of Stephen Miller is interesting, isn't it? I think they're trying to make Stephen Miller the Alexandria Cossio Cortez. Other Republican party. Rick Wilson is a Republican Trump hating strategists who often appears on CNN, and he suggested that there was sexual frustration. Motivating Stephen Miller, I'm not making this up at some point. Stephen Miller's hand appears in every immigration deal. Exactly. This White House has said remember CNN, the MSNBC the Democrats offered him twenty five billion dollars for a wall, DACA. And president Miller decided that wasn't going to be what are you president Miller we heard that wanted and there's there's something deeply wrong with who knows? Who knew we already have a Jewish president. I won the Miller, I think we can all acknowledge that. And maybe someday you'll have a relationship. With a live human woman. And this guy won't something will straighten out. Someday who have a relationship with a live human woman and that would make him less harsh on immigration. I guess Miller decided that wasn't going to be what he wanted. And there's I mentioned he's a Republican strategist named Rick Wilson. There is something deeply wrong with even Miller. I think we can all acknowledge that. And maybe someday you'll have a relationship with a live human woman. And this guy will something will straighten out anything that he's going to continue to be in this bizarre. Mike hostility picking on Stephen Miller who happens to be Jewish. She on the other foot guards pulling out the race card or the anti semitic card or something. Anybody who's like? Who comes to this wants to come to this country? What is his views have to do with him being sexually frustrated? Is just demented. And Senator van Hollen? Also took a shot at Stephen Miller have that for you. When I come back. And the way the media trash these Covington students and.
