"That's where JB pritzker's policies lead you to. And when we take away a future from a child, it's almost like the most hideous form of silent homicide ever. We are destroying their dreams before they have a chance to even exist. That's JB pritzker's world. So the American voters, I think we'll see what opportunity looks like when they look at the state of Florida in two years. They'll make a decision, and I think that the results in the state speak for themselves. You think we all should run? I would love to see him run. And then I know you said you wouldn't talk about the Senate, but let me ask you one question about him. And we move on to another topic. What policies that he has that you actually disagree with, because you said that you listed all of his successes, education, crime fighting policies, which ones you are not a 100% in line with. Well, I mean, here's the big picture. There's no politician we're any of us are going to be in line with all their policies. Like that doesn't exist. Every politician strengths what you like, weaknesses what you don't like. All right? This is ubiquitous. I mean, The New York Times wrote this really nasty Arctic about rahm Emanuel because I was one of rahm's big supporters. I'm like, why don't you applaud the fact that the two of us who are two sides of the aisle can find common ground a 90% of the issues that matter to our city. Why don't you applaud that? Why don't you think about how good it is that we're aligned against education, we're aligned against having safe streets, we're aligned against having a prosperous business community. Why do we need to find fault when we find the ability to find common ground? Now let's talk about Ron for a second. He has governor of the state of Florida. I've said before, I don't agree with how we handle the Disney situation in the end. It's my personal opinion. I think it's intimidating when the government takes steps that may look or feel like retribution. The CEO of Disney picked a fight with governor desantis, governor desantis, a lot of pick a fight back. But that should be a choice of words. And I think that we move the special governance status of Disney in their home county. That feels like overreach. That feels like retribution. And even if it wasn't the timing is terrible. And the reason that that's no problematic is if you're a small business owner, you say to yourself, well, wait. If the state can hurt Disney at a whim, they can wipe me out in a moment. And that discourages entrepreneurship, and that discourages the wheels of commerce. So that's when that worries me. I'm worried about the messaging around the vaccinations that the governors currently engaged in. It's a really tricky issue. And this one strikes close to home. Operation warp speed. Originated at Citadel. It was a conversation I had with The White House at the start

"PAW MADE. Yeah, so I'll pause and I'll make a couple of comments here. So first, Ezekiel Emanuel, who was one of the architects behind ObamaCare. Wrote an article called why I hope to die at 75. And he and he lays out how it's better for society if we essentially have people die quickly and kill them quickly. So he already has the mind frame that he would like to set it up to where, you know, you get your life ended pretty quickly when you're near the end. And his he's a medical ethicist and his ethics are part of a murder cult when it comes to these things. He's the brother of rahm Emanuel. Rahm Emanuel was the mayor of Chicago and went to be, I believe it was the chief of staff, for the Obama administration. And he's the one that famously said, don't let a crisis go to waste. And so you see that when they passed ObamaCare, they sewed the seeds of a lot of these things in it. I'm one of the few people that actually read the 1900 page document because it was going to affect my business. And it was filled with all kinds of surprises in there that funnel, they put over the most heavily regulated industry already, they put on top of it more government regulation and it's for the purposes of control like this. So when COVID came along, they murdered and we do know this because we saw the governors like Cuomo and others spread COVID through these vulnerable populations of elderly folks. For the purposes of, okay, here's an opportunity for us to kill hundreds of thousands of people and get them off of our financial Dole. And we're witnessing a lot of these seeds are planted in this whole thing. I mean, it's all connected. You know, we have a massive death cult going on here in the United States. These people do want to see our population reduced. We're watching places like Canada, where euthanasia is now the number one cause of death. This is happening. This is a fight that we are all in right now, whether you want to be in it or not. I, of course, agree in the timing of this is quite interesting because if you go all the way back to January 27th of 2020, that's when the public health emergency was first introduced by president Trump. And so by law, they have to re up that public health emergency every 90 days.

The U.S. ambassador to Japan is calling the assassination of former prime minister Shinzo Abe a shock to the system. It's a shock. It's a shock around the world, but it's clearly a shock here in Japan. Appearing on ABC's this week ambassador rahm Emanuel said the unexpected slaying of one of the country's most influential political figures hasn't been totally absorbed into the society or politics, as the country's longest serving prime minister Abe was known for using economic reforms to bolster Japan's place on the world stage, Emmanuel also said the country's bubble of security has been pierced since Japan rarely sees gun violence.

January 6th Created a Window to Empower the Worst Characters of U.S. Government
"Saying that what happened on January 6th is anywhere in the orbit. Of the catastrophe, a World War I World War II. However, that is what Kamala Harris and Biden are saying. We'll get to that in a minute. Because if you look at January 6th where one year later, it created this opening and created a window for the worst characters and darkest corners of our government and our ruling class to be empowered and to be given a platform. A created this opening where all of a sudden all the ideas were on the table. Now in certain conservative circles, it's rather cliche to say this, but it amazes me despite how many times people say it still people don't remember it. Tiny dancer, the first chief of staff to Barack Hussein Obama, rahm Emanuel, the 5 foot 5 ballerina failed mayor of Chicago. He had a famous saying when Obama became president.

"You ask Democrats and independence, I'm not talking about Republicans. If they are happy with the democratic Senate, democratic Congress, if they're happy with Joe Biden, you get horrible numbers. And here's the bottom line and I'll talk about this at another date. Joe Biden, again, this is widely accepted. Was put into office by the near unanimous support of black voters. 90 to 95% of all African Americans voted for Joe Biden, and here we are. Not only without a voting rights bill, not only without really anything of substance on police violence, but here they are pushing through a man who covered up police violence. That's all I have the energy to say I feel a vein bulging in my forehead right now. Incredibly frustrating. It's like shit. We can do. Here's the thing. Rom would not have been approved with Republicans. Like he's not a loyal Democrat in the sense that he's out here fighting for the things we care about. It's not doing that. This man is a, what we call a vulgar careerist. He's in this for himself. Always has been always will be? He's not fighting for everyday people.

"Time is somewhat different in the COVID era, and you may not remember. The brutal, brutal police shooting, of a teenage boy in Chicago, named Laquan McDonald. He really needed medical attention more than anything else, and finally the officer who shot and killed Laquan was eventually arrested and charged and convicted. Of the shooting death of Laquan McDonald, who again really just needed medical and mental health support, not any form of violence from police who were never in harm's way, and a jury decided this very thing. All of that was done in spite of Chicago's mayor rahm Emanuel. Who went out of his way to conceal evidence to hide body camera footage and to make sure that the police officers who not only killed Laquan McDonald, but helped cover it up to make sure that they were never held accountable. When this was discovered. Not only in Chicago but around the country. There was widespread disgust and disdain, frustration and anger at the role then Chicago mayor rahm Emanuel played in all of it. It's infuriating, it's immoral, it could be illegal. I won't even get into the fact. That rom went out of his way to cut budgets of schools to close schools to do so much more that made life hard for everyday people in Chicago. I just want to hone in on the fact. That a teenage boy who needed help was murdered by police. And the mayor of Chicago, rahm Emanuel, went out of his way, deliberately. Intently. To help cover it up. When you can, Google the words, Laquan McDonald, rahm Emanuel cover up. You don't have to take my word for it. This isn't a conspiracy theory. This isn't a fringe conclusion. This is mainstream. Google the words the Quan McDonald rahm Emanuel cover up, and you will see articles all over the country from mainstream news sources and there were politicians all over the country, particularly when they were running for office, mind you. Who spoke out on how deplorable how ugly it was that rahm Emanuel did that, apparently for political gain. Because he knew it would impact his reelection his position as mayor, and so he tried to cover it up for as long as he could until he was reelected. And then it all came out. And so just think about that. Just for a moment, put yourself in the shoes of a family whose loved one was murdered by police, and then you learned that the mayor had oversight of critical evidence. That the mayor covered up for their own political gain, put yourself in that position. It was infuriating. When the Joe Biden White House nominated rahm Emanuel for this ambassadorship, before Joe Biden took office, it was said again from mainstream news sources that rom was hoping to be appointed into some high capacity position in The White House. But because of his role in this coverup, it basically made him untouchable. And the conclusion at that time was that rom was out. And listen, you don't owe him anything, like he doesn't deserve anything. This man is independently wealthy can get a job as a consultant, which is what he's doing now. He does not need this position. His family is super rich. He doesn't need it. Okay, it's not his. Like there is not a position waiting for him. So instead of simply moving on and actually appointing somebody who's qualified to be the ambassador to Japan, instead of not giving rom any position, he was nominated for this position of ambassador to Japan. Still, as a member of the Joe Biden administration. And it was infuriating. To see him nominated. But in the middle of the night, right before the Christmas holiday. Democrats in the Senate gathered together under the urge of the Biden White House, and approved rahm Emanuel. And there were only three Democrats that actually voted against rom. And I'm going to give you those names now. You know, I am grateful that Elizabeth Warren voted against his nomination. It matters. So I'm deeply grateful to see her vote against rom. She in running for president has so many smart people teaching her about police violence and the impact of it in addition to Elizabeth Warren, senator Ed Markey of Massachusetts voted against rom and senator Jeff merkley of Washington state voted against rom, Bernie and about 25 other senators if my math is correct. We're not even in town and did not vote at all. So the only Democrats who voted against it were Elizabeth Warren, Ed Markey and Jeff merkley. What is shocking? Not just because they are black. But what was shocking was that Cory Booker, who I know and senator Raphael Warnock, who I know, and I have known Raphael Warnock since I was literally a teenage student at morehouse college, going back 20 plus years. I have known him since long before he was in the United States Senate, and I have known Cory Booker personally for years. I have met him and spoke with him and been on panels and at events with him. I know his team and his staff saying for Rafael Warnock. To see the two of them who position themselves in huge parts as men who care about civil rights and social justice. To see them confirm rahm Emanuel was deeply discouraging. When there were a lot of people that I was deeply discouraged that they voted for wrong. With seeing Cory Booker and Raphael Warnock, go ahead and vote for him. Deeply discouraging. And, you know, I called them out on Instagram this past weekend. People said, listen, how can you call them out when we're in such difficult times? Excuse my language parents. And school teachers fuck that. We're in difficult times. What's that have to do? With them literally putting a man in a administration who covered up police violence. It's infuriating. I don't care how hard the time is. Like that's my role is not to shut up and be quiet. I'm not the quiet type in general. But to see these two men and dozens of their democratic colleagues vote for rahm Emanuel, aha man. It's an easy no vote. Everybody would understand. And clearly they didn't care. Chuck Schumer passed it through and, you know, it's extremely frustrating. But here we are. And you wonder why. If.

"Mm. Just wanted to let you know that we had a little bit of breaking news earlier. It is something that is going to resonate throughout the area. Today. It's official. President Biden has nominated former Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel. To serve as ambassador to Japan by all accounts, and of course, you know, a lot of this is political rumor mill doesn't mean it's not true. By all accounts Early in the Biden administration, Rahm Emanuel was lobbying to be, um, Cabinet level position transportation, which, of course, went to Pete Buddha Judge And, um, By all accounts, Joe Biden was very seriously considering having Rahm Emanuel have a very important role in his administration until Progressives started really pushing back hard on that, saying that it would be a betrayal of Biden's promises to them. In large part, Rahm Emanuel is still being trailed by the fact that he was one of the people despite his protests stations to the contrary, he was one of the people who tried to bury the Laquan McDonald video. You know the video of A young man who, by all accounts had was having a mental crisis. There were other cops on the scene. They were managing him. They were managing the threat he presented. Jason Van Dyke pulled up in a squad car and for whatever reason, pulled out his gun and started firing. Way at Laquan McDonald. The video tape of that was suppressed for very nearly an entire year And then when it finally came out, the mayor claimed not to ever have known about it. That's when he was asking for then Superintendent Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy to resign. Like somehow, Garry McCarthy had kept all this information from him. By all accounts, Rahm Emanuel was gearing up to run for another term as Chicago's mayor. But when this blew up, his support evaporated, and he has been, um He has been keeping a very low profile since then. Until Joe Biden was elected. People started wondering, you know what does Biden Rahm Emanuel that he is considering him for a Cabinet level position, But the Push back on that. Was overwhelming. So a lot of people are saying that this is a win win. President Biden gets to Reward someone he worked with before and apparently had a good relationship with Japan apparently likes it. When very prominent former government government officials are named as their ambassador, because culturally it makes them feel like it's Acknowledgement that they are a very important partner for the United States, so they kind of want a marquee. Ambassador. Rahm Emanuel is certainly that, you know, I mean, he was mayor of the city of Chicago. He was a congressman, and oh, by the way, he was also White House chief of staff under the Obama administration for a time. Um And and then there are people who are saying great. Get him out of the country. I'm sorry. I know that That's not nice. Might be true, but it's not nice. Oh, there wasn't another another announcement. The ambassador to China. Biden is nominating gentleman by the name of our nickels. Burns. Um Harvard professor who used to be the ambassador to NATO was also the ambassador to Greece and worked at the State Department. So that's the breaking news today. Um, like I said. When those confirmation hearings come about I will be. I don't know about you. I will be glued to C span. I don't know if CNN or anybody big or carry it, but you know it's going to be on C span. And if anything, really fun happens. I'll bring it to you here on this show. I promise you that. So President Biden today getting getting back to that President Biden today made a a big statement on Afghanistan. What we're doing, why we're doing it. And the fact that We are not going to abandon our allies just a little while ago about 15 20 minutes ago, Congressman Mike Quigley released a statement. Mike Quigley was actually trying. He had some flight delays. Big surprise he was trying to get to Albania. Albania is one of the countries. That has agreed to at least temporarily. House Afghan refugees, The ones that are trying to get US visas might quickly plan to try to get to Albania to greet the refugees as they came. But he wasn't able to do that. But he did issue a statement. Like I said, just about 30 minutes ago, saying how grateful the United States is to the people of Albania and their prime minister? For leading the way to welcome Afghans into their nation because the process to get into the United States is very complicated. Tammy Duckworth's among others, said. We can't wait to get these people out if the paperwork isn't in line for them to come to the United States. Then, for God's sakes, get them out and take them to other places. Take them to our air Force base in our military bases in Guam in Qatar, wherever well countries like Albania, R Are stepping up. And might quickly put out a statement about 30 minutes ago wanting to acknowledge what they are doing and how they are helping us out. I told you we were trying to track down Brandon Johnson to find out the latest about reopening schools. Devin our our plucky Devon. Back in the studio has found Brandon. He joins us now. Hey, Brandon, how you doing? Hey, Joan. I'm doing well, thanks for asking. And, uh I think we have some folks that are pretty persistent. So, uh, thanks for being I believe persistent is Devon's middle name. So, um, bring this up his work, So bring us up to speed on. What are the negotiations? What are the testing procedures? What are the measures to keep staff teachers and students safe as school reopens? Yeah, That's the goal. That is the goal. That's what our goal has been. You know as educators, and it's you know, parents scored the last No, we're actually approaching the second year, right? Hmm. Unfortunate goal that many of the demands that we put forward to the mayor. Um what way back in March of 2020. That those standards Those health standards. She's actually been working to roll back what we've previously had agreement on like, like, Give me one specific. What's one specific thing? Yeah, very clear. One is like just having their health metrics. So when when did you shut down the school? And right now there's no real close standard or or uh around. How we do that Anything? The fact of the matter is that Delta variant and all the other variants, um, that are manifesting, um, actually quite troubling and just as a retreat. As we've experienced some of the course of the game these 18 months. So the fact that she's rolling back a health standards and metrics that will determine whether classroom or school is shut down. That's obviously problematic. You know the other? Well, did she have a new metric to replace it with or was it just We don't need metrics. Yeah, that's that's exactly Would that be Brandon? That doesn't make any sense. You have to know when the the problem reaches a crisis Proportion, if and you and then you can know when it doesn't I don't understand that we don't either. It's clearly you're responsible. And But this is this is what happens. I miss honestly, Joan, when you have a school district that is overwhelmingly made up of black and brown students. There's there. There's this lack of Civic compassion. Maybe that's one way to put it or just love and care to be able to at least established a safety measure so that families that are making this very difficult decision can at least have some understanding..

Reportedly the working hours lost in two thousand twenty were equivalent to the loss of two hundred fifty five million full-time jobs leading to three point. Seven trillion in lost income labor. That's atrocious on believable. And we did it through a plan. I still have a problem believing that we allowed this to happen. But here we set today here. We sit and those that can't get jobs won't because they've given so much free funny money to them that they'd rather sit home and live off. The government then live live off their jobs. Although millions have returned to work it is not expected that global working hours were return to pre covert levels in two thousand twenty one and probably not in two thousand twenty two and probably never. That's what we have done to our country. It's shameful with tens of millions of people losing their jobs and seeing their working hours reduced due to kobe. Nineteen the ongoing crisis has disrupted labor markets around the world at an unprecedented scale. We have to fight back. Who catch us as we will. When the safety net of america is ripped asunder. Who will treat are sick at our defenseless when the medical system longer has worthless funny money printed out of thin air to continue their practice of medicine of to continue their practice of do harm medicine and win our free society no longer exist. Who will you turn to right now. We still have the force of law. Those laws were all begun and socialism shall rain when we wake up in the near future defined that the viruses gone right along with our economy our nation our free society and our political future where do the trillions upon trillions of dollars which are not keeping us afloat. Where were they come from. When there's no more funny money available. It is clear that such dollars that were created out of thin air have no value in no worth and are only adding to it. Shortening of time before the united states of america will be forced to admit that we are bankrupt as nation as a political system as an economy and finally face a real an indisputable collapse of the whole free republic as a society. We have no choice but to either submit or to fight. We want to fight politically. We want to fight with votes. And if that doesn't work we will still fight. I hope everybody understands that. It's going to happen though. It should not seem breathtaking. Earthshaking president trump quite proficiently said it quote. President trump said quote. It makes sense to at least plan. For what a reentry into normality would look like unquote all. Everybody went crazy when he said all terrible terrible. But it's an absolute logical thing to say that's exactly what needs to be said. They hated him more than they loved their country. These words should be nothing more than obvious to everyone yet the democrats socialists enemies of the nation. And those who hated trump want to play politics with the american people's economic future they want to create a panic and to further another economic shutdown. Eventually to force us all to take the vaccine. I will not will you. You need to ask yourself now and start planning for that eventuality. We all can remember. Former obama chief of staff and former mayor skulduggery manual rahm emanuel and ezekiel dr zeki. Emanuel's brother his famous words of never let a good crisis. Go to waste and believe me. The democrats are not now they are threatening to give us a new lock down to force assault aware mask again and very soon the force us to get the vaccine against our will. Are you willing to do that. America can anyone fathom what would be left on the nation if we are forced to live without food without medicine without hope and without a job for another year and a half. That's what's coming president. Donald j trump said it correctly and wisely on april seven. Two thousand twenty are people want to return to work. They will practice social distancing and all measures and seniors will be watched over and protectively and lovingly. And we can do two things together. He's right he was right. But that's where we are today and we have a war before us and unless we are willing to fight that war we will be lost. We cannot pretend that we can go on indefinitely as though no disasters outcome will ensue from shutting our economy down and destroying our families destroying our nation. If we continue as we are doing now and even being forced into a second lockdown very soon we will be destroyed as a nation and they know it. Let me also stay the main reason they want to force you. Get into mask the want to force you to remain in your home. They want to create panic and fear that they can play with the election. That's coming up real soon now. My friends.

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.

To pull this on to be able to change laws or change within change laws, they bypass all to be re bypass circumvent the law. And so that these were the testing grounds. And they got away with it. Now. I don't care what anybody says that they hear about. You know whether the election was stolen or whatever. There it is the undisputed truth. That Pennsylvania election officials Circumvented the law. They did not follow the law. They were supposed to use voter I d and signature verification and they did not follow it. And so that is against the law. That is the undisputed truth. People. Don't say what you're saying. Yura Yura, Yura Biden Denial or whatever. You're in election tonight. I'm just telling you what happened. And the only way to fix that is for people to sue them before they get to before we get to the election and for the Republicans to stand up before the election, and this is the lesson we learned. So is this is history going to repeat itself? I'm not saying that we're gonna have a Republican next time because it's all going to depend on who it is. If it's trump, I don't know. Can he win again? Who knows in four years? But I will tell you this. The same circumstances is not going to be there. This was the perfect storm. And don't forget what Rahm Emanuel always said. Never let a crisis go to waste. Oh, boy, did they play that one? And we've heard them say it forever. And we've heard them. Say it forever. Never let a crisis go to waste and we saw them using the crisis and nobody stopped. Um Remember when Dr Epstein in 2019 was testifying before the Senate and said.

Don't tell me the courts won't let you I don't know what the courts would have done Had they sued before the election, but I think you'd have been a different ball of wax because you're talking about votes and had not come in yet. Courts are very hesitant to overturn votes that have already been cast. They don't mind getting involved before there's ever a vote cast. But once they're cast their very scared to get involved.

I mean, we've received a very, very nice e mails from people thanking us for our attempt to understand what's happening before we talk about it Reasonable nous, etcetera. We're a niche show. There's no money in being in the show. No, no. And if we weren't so stupid, we go ahead and pander. But this stubborn or whatever it is, anyway. There's covert stuff to talk about a lot of stimulant millions and millions of stimulus checks went out to people who didn't deserve him. Lots of people Wait did deserve him. Didn't get him over. Just there's plenty of things to talk about. That was all depressing. Is there anything not depressing old lady sent us pictures of little bears playing little bears? Little bear cubs? That's not depressing. Awesome. Um, you know, it's teamwork that makes the dream work. And that's why we interview so many squad. That's our board operator. Michelangelo right there pressing buttons slipping, toggles pulling levers. Is that purple? That shirt you're wearing? Yeah, you know what? It is funny, because when I pulled out the closet, the room was kind of dark. And so I thought it was a greater black And then I realized it was purple. It might be a black shirt that has faded over time of washing and drying. I think it's an actual perp. Well, sure. Why are you prosecuting him? And why do you sound guilty? Michael? It's okay. To order part is now I don't know if there were a cult and I forgot you're not allowed to wear purple is just like the way he was on his back foot. I ask that you think you're some kind of a king or something wearing purple anyway, How are you this morning, Michael. I'm doing good. I got on Bloomberg dot com. They have something where you can track how many people have actually received the vaccine. How many people that you got the shot in the arm and so far As of this morning, it was 6.25 million in the nation. Yeah. Oh, my gosh. And they're hoping for 20 million in December, said that 22 doses you know, have been distributed. But as far as people actually getting, it is only six million so far. That's a state problem. Yeah, and then they had broken down by space. That is absolutely amazing, but that's really the key to all of this is just they've just got to get that vaccine out. I keep thinking you gotta have a big test for people whose drive up and you just give him the shot in the arm is they stick out their arms, right, Michael? It strikes me that each state ought to depending on its geography and population set up between two and 30. Vaccination centers. Put out the word. Look, Come with your front line, Medical person I d or this or that here, the locations come one come all getting line. Maybe even have a website that estimates the waiting time in each place so people can figure out. Maybe I'll try tomorrow but just set up a big ass tent and have people drive through and get the shot. How hard is this were well over a month into realizing that it's much slower than they'd hoped you did..

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.
This Week with George Stephanopoulos
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. I've gone through this process twice myself and being vetted and the partnership matters significantly there's no doubt but also that person has to be able to see you but more importantly the American people in this instance has to see that choice as someone they could see as president of the United States that in the next four years.

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.

This Morning with Gordon Deal
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
