"Good morning new york. This is the cash roundtable cats with here sunday morning. What's going on in new york is today's when the smartest guys i know randy mastro. He was deputy mayor in new york little while ago and also he was an assistant. Us attorney in the southern district of new york and lately he was fighting hard for the west side of manhattan to clear after lucerne hotel morning. Mr masculine how are you this morning. Great john poised to be with you and still fighting hard for the upper west side. Tell you know. I grew up in the west side. Someone i care about it you know. Tell us about what. Give us an update. What's going on the west side. Well we won the case at the trial level. Judge ruled that the the homeless single adults who were being temporarily housed at the lucerne. Sro hotel on the upper west side with been lots of problems in and around the hotel and then the neighborhood that the city at the right to move them downtown And then there was an emergency appeal. And then you are. There's always an appeal And the appellate according takes time for the court to sort it out. So what's happened. Since is the appellate court sent a expediter briefing schedule and all that but they want to retain their rights to decide the case so the bottom line they issued an order that's known as the status quo order to try and maintain the status quo. But they tried to split the baby. They said the mandatory cert who wanna move downtown to their new facility. They can move if they want to the men who want to stay if there will sir until the appellate court decides the case they can stay if it were sir but that puts the city and a catch twenty two. The city doesn't want to have to provide services at two different places but the same population. I saw effectively john. The baby split Is justice delayed because eventually the court is going to rule that these men lucerne do not have standing to challenge the city's decision on where to house them temporarily the city out of the right to move them into lucerne. The city has a right to move out of the lucerne as long as they're being provided you know proper shelter everybody concedes see the downtown is proper shelter so them go to lose eventually. But it won't take until april or may now. Mr master deputy mayor in the city And you you love the city here about city like i do. We have a democratic administration. You have a senate you have the congress you have. The executive branch is new. York and be saved is going to be federal relief. Can we save new york john. I do believe that there will be federal relief now going to states and cities hardest hit at obviously new york new york city. I remember in the original programs And even in the most recent program There there was not the money going directly to states and cities all the extra expense. They've had with healthcare police emergency services the billions of dollars that new york state and city are in the whole as a result there. There was no provision for that I believe in a democratic administration Whether you're republican or democrat a democratic administration it's gonna be an a democratic congresses can be much more likely that there is such direct Funding to states and cities hardest hit by head. I think you're going to see an increase in the individual amounts Going individuals from six hundred to the two thousand. And i think you're gonna see more. Ppp it just is a natural consequence. Remember the house democrats wanted to. Have you know a huge program that got scaled back by the republican senate. I think you're going to see a lot more federal aid coming. New york's way and hopefully that saves us out of this crisis. Addition mr mastro Team we can. Joe biden president brydon as of next wednesday Bring the country together. I mean he. He promised that He's gonna treat. All americans are same and it seems to be a lot of hate in washington mostly from speaker. Pelosi ary i we. Can we bring the country together. Mr master john. You're you're you're you're acting jackie. The right questions. And i think that's why joe biden won the election as as strong support as donald trump has in his base. I think that there was an overwhelming sense particularly along. You know swing voters that god. We needed somebody who unified the country. More and joe biden emerged in the democratic primaries because he was a guy who said i plan to work with the republicans they the ones on the far left who who who condemned the republicans. They're the ones who ended up losing in the democratic primaries. The guy who said he really cares about uniting the country and they committed to work with republicans including mitch. Mcconnell with whom biden had a long standing relationship having served for decades together in the senate. I think that's what joe biden is going to try to do. It's what he committed to do committing to do it and doing it or different things. John it's gonna be hard especially coming off the latest impeachment but you know something I i think that joe biden. Everyone says the same thing republican or democrat. That he's a decent guy with a heart guy whether you like is politics or not. He's a decent guy with a heart who tries to reach consensus so hopefully they will be able to deliver on that. Promise randy mascow. Thank you so much for coming on the show. And bringing all new yorkers up to dayton. We'll catch up again real soon my pleasure. John always great to be with you. Stay.

"This is against roundtable transaction here. The sun is shining. We have a great show for you Today we have NYPD chief And quarry. He's in charge of training people. We have Benny Bosio, Corrections Officer Benevolent Association president and talking about Gracchus Island. Turned me Randy Mastro. What's going on on the West Side? We have no further delay. That's Toto Randy Levine, the president in New York Yankees. What is it gonna take to fix New York and he wrote an editorial last week. Saying We have to solve the problems of the New York His name is Randy Levine. Good morning, Randy. How are you? Hi, John. It's always great to talk to you How you hope everybody is good and safe. Everybody's good and safe. And like New Yorkers were concerned. All New Yorkers are concerned about New York and you wrote an editorial last week and you had some ideas. Would you tell all New Yorkers about it? Yes, If you you know, just like you. I love this city ums. One in the city lived most of my life here served as deputy mayor for economic development, planning it administration and labor Commissioner. So I have a vested interest on president of the Yankees that this city thrives and that's you know the people of the greatest in the world. What a ZAY have been following things when I'm really, really worried about is because of the pandemic because of what's happened here. Is the fiscal situation in the city is really, really bleak. I believe that it hasn't gotten the attention that it deserves. Yeah, This'll city is not on good financial footing. Then nothing else can happen. You can't have good schools. You can't have people who have a quality place to live so they can pay their rent and their mortgages. Everything breaks down, and I believe that There hasn't been the attention yet, and from people who are, you know, announced that they're running for mayor officially declared to deal with this problem, because if you don't solve this problem And nothing happens. The city will go bankrupt. And when you look at the history of cities that have gone bankrupt Greece only Detroit New years ago Cleveland it's a long, long climb back. But we've been in as New Yorkers. We've been in this situation before back in the fiscal crisis of the seventies on in the nineties, when Major Lee Anne was elected. On and at the end of the day, there are proven ways tools that can be used that are inclusive of everybody. Everybody has to sacrifice. That could put the city on good financial basis. So I decided to write an editorial. I'm not running from there, but to basically put out when I saw was a blueprint. To create a discussion so that all New Yorkers could really laser focus on this issue and to start thinking about these kind of plans. So that the city not only survives but rides well, A lot of people concerned would covered covered seems to be the problems should be solved very soon the next few months. Thea. Other thing that they're concerned about is the amount of crime in the streets. You manic crime in subways. I mean, would you allow your kids to ride subways right now? The way things are, I mean, On the amount of homeless in the streets and a lot of those homeless or mentally ill. When you were deputy mayor with Mayor Giuliani to understand it was 30,000 mentally ill. People in hospitals being helped Well, the current administration through those people into the streets of New York and those in the homeless, So instead of being helped in hospitals there in the streets of New York, they emptied out right his island because of the bail law, and and because it covered they put the criminals in the streets of New York. And there in the streets in New York, and they're not putting him back in the jails. What say you? Yeah, I think those issues are important issues to be discussed. But when you read buying I bet none of those issues can be discussed. None of those issues could be solved. None of those issues can move forward unless the city is on sound Financial on the sounds financial basis. And right now, as we move forward, that we're not we have giant you know, out year budget deficits. The private sector is shrinking businesses. They're closing. People can't pay their mortgages. Their rent. Real estate, as you know, is Depressed. So where I'm focused on is to get a discussion of the city's economic footprint on get a plan to fix that. Because if you don't fix that you don't have. You'll have no city services. They'll have no way to pay for more police. They'll have no way to pay. You know for hospital workers and health care workers and people who conserve that problem. So that's really what the editorial is about The outside. I'm sorry is about that's what it's focused on. And because of we, if we have a city that goes bankrupt, been is going to be chaos. Well did July. Well. Estate taxes were mostly paid because everybody felt felt that there's gonna be relief. But January real estate taxes is going to be a little more tougher for people to pay. So how much of a deficit do you feel that it could be in New York? And the empty A system with their ridership is down to tell a 20%. How do you continue to operate? I don't know The answers to that. That's why we need Tomo put a laser focus on these issues..

"This rico case is every bit complicated and confusing as the original case in ecuador. so we're going to spend a couple of episodes going through it not because we want to take our eyes or ears off of what happened in ecuador but because we think it's important to evaluate these claims transparently into we them against the damage at the heart of the original case the environmental damage in the amazon to explore. This mismatch that filmmaker joe berlinger describe last. Time between what's legal and what's moral to look at where the focus of the story turned and figure out where we think it should be now. So i charge pressuring the lago agrio court and manufacturing evidence when we talked to randy mastro the lawyer with gibson dunne. Who led this rico. Effort for chevron. He talked a lot about how much danziger the other plaintiffs attorneys were trying to influence pressure. Ecuadorian judges among various other pieces of evidence. Mastro pointed out takes from the documentary crude. Here he is talking about one scene in particular he also captured at dinner. I mean sitting next to A woman who says to him you know the judge will be killed. If he doesn't rule in your favor in this country and danziger says well i don't know about killed. But he thinks he will which is just as good. It sounds really shady who at mastro's describing but trying to make your case in the public so that it's unpopular for a judge to rule against you it's kinda the entire basis of litigation. Pr which pr firms created four multinational corporations in the first place. And it's something. A lot of companies including various oil companies have used to their benefit for years. Another seamaster master described is a bit more concerning where he's talking about mobilizing to put people in front of the courthouse. The thousand people in front of the courthouse to pressure. And he's saying literally the pressure the judge we have to make them know who's boss to make knows in control. We're going to put a thousand people out of the courthouse and we're going to mobilize and there's even discussion of arming. The thousand people And some discussion about whether that is you know conspiracy and a crime in the outtakes. It's hard to tell whether the arming part is serious. In this clip you'll hear don's group describe pulling together a bunch of protesters which he describes as an editor seat though an army then louisiana jumps in and says in spanish. We're using the word army but it's not really an army. It's like a specialized group coastal watch again for most popular house as a hasn't always komo now group specifically saddles facility. Sounds a woman from amazon. Watch asks if it's possible. These videos might be subpoenaed and warns the group of put a subpoena also. Us she told a hair snow with a hint that a busy electoral it's illegal to conspire to break up in another shorter snippet. From this scene we found on youtube. Iansa says this colombian stumbles in almost. So he's saying and then if we need weapons. We can provide weapons. That does sound bad. Although johnson's laughing lot so it's hard to tell what the context was here remember. This is thirty seconds. Taken out of what seems to be a fifteen minute or so seen so. We're not really sure how this particular segment was taken out. What was before after it. How it might have been edited. All we're seeing. Is this one part. It mostly sounds like people organizing Big protest the manufacturing evidence part of this section of the rico complaint refers to the two issues master mentioned a couple episodes back the com- bucker report and the cabrera report here. He is explaining the issue with charles. Comebacker an expert for the plaintiffs when we compelled dr comebacker testimony in georgia. What he actually testified was not the report that steve don's regard at his ecuadorian lawyers submitted to the court in ecuador what was not comebacker conclusion that he had not in fact concluded that was significant environmental damage in the work that he had done danziger and the plaintiffs tonight. This combo burger had been fired and his deposition was basically sour grapes. Then there's the kebir report which mastro says the plaintiffs experts. Doug belt men and and maced ghost-wrote. Here's mastro the supposedly independent experts in ecuador. Who'd been appointed by the court to be objective independent party in assessing environmental damage. And how much there was an attributing it to a two parties. If there were found to be environmental damage that in fact it was not an independent objective report. It had been ghost. Written word for word. I stress don's occurs. Explanation was that this was a perfectly normal that the plaintiffs had asked for cabrera to be appointed and that they're experts helped to run analysis for his reports. He talked about this a couple of episodes ago. But here's a little snippet to remind you stratus did right or draft. Most of the cabrera report cabrera though reviewed it signed. They worked together. There was a massive amount of information. You know lunar elite tens of thousands of chemical sampling results in any single individual would never have the capacity to co all that together analyze it by himself or herself. Douglas belton the scientists from stratus consulting told sixty minutes in no uncertain terms what he thought protects because practices in the amazon. It's a disgrace They treated ecuador like a trashy he was named as a defendant in the rico to an in his initial deposition. He said quote. We didn't collect any data ourselves. We were only looking at the data that had been collected by others. According belt men dot included data collected as part of the trial including the judicial inspection data where plaintiff experts and chevron experts collected environmental data and cabrera and his team also collected environmental data. When asked why the plaintiff samples all seem to be contaminated and chevron samples devoid of contamination feldman explained why quote chevron may have sampled farther away from the pits and the used a different analytical methods from that of the plaintiffs at one point the attorney conducting the deposition ass. Did you reach any conclusion about whether or not the environment been contaminated during texaco's work in the concession by their work in the concession and boatman answers quote back inclusion is. The texaco did cause environmental contamination as a result of their operations. Then the attorney us. Did you reach a conclusion as to whether or not texaco operations in the concession complied with the industry standards in effect at the time and belton says quote the way that texaco operated. That oilfield was sub-standard. By industry practices the us practices. That were common the early nineteen hundreds but by the time. They were conducting operations in ecuador. These practices were not typically used.

"With the media narrative spiraling out of it's grasp Chevron brought in the big dogs, the law firm Gibson Dunn in fall two thousand nine. The firm was just wrapping up a landmark case for Dole, the food company which had been fighting a damages suit in Latin America for decades. Nicaraguan. Banana farmers had sued the company for knowingly spring their fields with a pesticide that causes sterilization they won in Nicaragua Court Gibson Dunne attorneys argued that that court had no jurisdiction over Dole an American company. When did you get involved in the case? What year? Late Two thousand, nine, early, two, thousand, ten. That's Randy Mastro. Again, he led Gibson Dunn's work for Chevron on the keys in Ecuador. Okay. And what were you know? What was sort of the task? Gibson Dunne was. Asked to join the. Team of outside counsel. Representing. Chevron. In connection with. The Litigation in Ecuador and in connection with. Trying, to find out. The truth about what was going on in Ecuador. By this point, not only was the media tipping in favor of the plaintiffs but president could coulda had been publicly supportive of the suit as well. Louis theon Song Ecuador says it wasn't even so much that was a great friend to the plaintiffs. He just wasn't as much in the pocket of oil companies as previous Ecuadorian presidents had been. Mobile Uris. See Him break his thyroid. Sally Saddles of Hobbled Company. Previous. Governments were always biased in favor of the company. He says. Is the most macho sexiness. In we had to have a lot of actions in keep go with marches, meetings, press conferences, meetings with politicians, all of that which. Which? Bottom elderly. A A lot a lot of work to neutralize the government just so they didn't bow completely to the company when could was elected though NBC Asana him you said, you're Gwenda he visited the area and talked to the people and realized the magnitude of the damage the company had done and that the struggle we had been carrying out for more than a decade was just host and he decided to support it he in this deal for Yemen. And on top of all that in two thousand, eight, Ecuador had ratified a new constitution. One gave equal rights to indigenous people and that included a radical new idea the rates of nature. Ecuador is the first country to include these rights in its constitution. At some point, we're GONNA do a whole season on rights of nature because it's fascinating and it's really become an interesting new legal tool but in broad strokes, if you think about private property rights and how they ascribe control over nature to whatever human has purchased, this piece of land rights of Nature says, forget that nature has its own rights. All life forms have the right to exist and to continue living, and here's where it gets interesting from a legal perspective. It says that legally we the people have authority to enforce these rights on behalf of ecosystems. The ecosystem it's self can be named as the defendant. It's hard to imagine Chevron or really any oil company being happy about this kind of thing. and. So in two thousand, nine with multiple PR firms and a new legal team on board, the company started to tell a different story. A bitter environmental lawsuit against Chevron. The second largest oil company in the United States appears to be entering. It's critical phase in Ecuador. I. They. Hired former. Reporter gene randall to host a mirror image version of the sixty minutes documentary with their side of the story. Chevron asked toxicologist Thomas Makita to study the issue the health effects that burn reported are attributable to exposure to bacteria, which is widespread in the drinking water sources. They're not attributable to petroleum exposure. No doubt about that. There's no doubt in my mind despite the claims that's correct. There are fears such findings may be trumped by politics. Ecuador's President Rafael Correa loudly supports the case against. Chevron. A craze instigation with the support of the Amazon Defense Coalition Seven Ecuadorian officials who signed Texaco's environmental liability release face criminal charges. He's talking about the attorneys we mentioned at the top of this episode, Ricardo Re's Bega and Rodrigo Perez Polaris along with seven Ecuadorian officials, they were accused of tampering with a release form that had become pretty central to chevrons defense. In this case shortly, after that nineteen ninety, four meeting, we mentioned in episode two where Texaco's lawyer was meeting with the president and various environment ministers. The government came to an agreement with Texaco about remediation. Here's Chevron spokesperson can't Robertson explaining that arrangement to NPR in late two, thousand, eat Texaco held a thirty seven percent interest in in the consortium with its majority partner being Petroecuador Texaco is not operated in Ecuador. For eighteen years. When it was time for Texaco to depart Ecuador. The the party sat down and worked out a remediation program. We're Texaco would address its proportionate share of the consortium. Thirty seven point, five percent and Petroecuador assumed responsibility for the balance of the operations. In nine hundred, Ninety, eight after they had remediated thirty seven point, five percent of the pollution. Texaco. submitted documentation to the government and the government signed a document releasing the company from any further cleanup. Again, the argument the plaintiffs make and that the lawyer and researcher Judith Curling made as well is that Texaco was the operator and that means they set everything up and they taught everyone how to. Do Things. They created the oil industry in Ecuador and they set a low standard for environmental responsibility I asked Randy. Mastro about that, we've heard people kind of float this idea of like, yes. Okay. Technically Petroecuador has been doing all of this stuff but you know it was Texaco who them, and it's Texaco built the whole system what what is the response to that kind of line of thought Wow that that is revisionist history and You know. Trying to put the blame where it doesn't belong. Texaco got kicked out of the country. Starting in nineteen ninety, Texaco spent. You know back in the early nineties. Shorty.

"A supervising board and money from outside. Is there another piece that needs to come into place before we get to the cooperation of the mayor, the City Council? The governor and the state Senate and State Assembly. When Mr Trump used the term Ghost town last night, Mr Biden bristled. I don't think Mr Biden is familiar with how bad it is here or or what we heed Mr Trump atleast recognizes the fact it unlike other cities that are recovering Dallas, for example, or You are even Los Angeles. We are especially challenge because of the dimensions because we're an island and there's no security as you say, and people feel unsafe to use the mass transit. Well, I think the governor has to take action. On DH, maybe bring in the state troopers Or maybe, you know, do what he has to do to take care of the city. Several weeks ago, You signed a letter with a number of other business leaders in this to the mayor asking for help. Have you had a substantive response from the mayor on that? Well, Cathy Wild who does in New York City partnership, has talked to the mayor on DH. Saying that he wants to help. But I haven't seen much well. His idea of help, of course, is to do counter propaganda counter publicity. Excuse me about whether it's a ghost town or not. I'm not comfortable with the idea that the mayor doesn't know how it is in Manhattan. He lives in Brooklyn. I'm not sure he walks the streets here. Do you know Well, when he I was working on the Upper West Side. Would Randy, Mass shoulder help out the West Side is because the West Siders are up in arms that organization, the Westside Community Group. I think there's 15,000 of them. 15,000 call themselves Democratic Jewish liberals bind by large and they're traditionally vote democratic. There. How do you say Matas? Hell, and then you go up and they hired Randy Mastro, former deputy mayor, super lawyer. On, the mayor says well within a cleanup, those hotels that we put the homeless it well. It was supposed to be cleaned up. A couple weeks ago. We had Randy Mass show on the show before it's not cleaned up yet. John Catsimatidis is the host of Cats Round table.

"Yeah, And I wouldn't just they tried to pressure I mean, a group of residents started a Facebook group and hired like a power trial Attorney, A man named Randy Mastro, who used to be a deputy mayor in the Rudolph Giuliani administration and has a really reputation is someone Who can get into you know city state bureaucracies and fix things. So they put a lot of money behind the battle on DH. After the mayor moved, you know something like 800 residents to shell to three separate hotels on the Upper West Side. They, You know, they immediately fought back. I should mention that something like 10,000 homeless people have been moved from congregate shelters into hotel settings during the covert pandemic. In order to, you know, try to stem the spread of the virus to this population so that people get moved into the hotel in July. There's enormous push back. A lawyer is hired. And then there's the push back to the push back. You know, people, other people on the port side were like, Wait a minute. This is not representative of who we are. We are not seeing the crime and the drug dealing and the upsetting behavior that you know other people have been talking about or if we have seen it, it has you know since calmed down since Something like 40, members of the homeless community that had lived in the Lucerne had been relocated to other shelters because their behavior was deemed unacceptable. So you know, there's there's a lot. There's a lot of pushing Paul, there are there's the push back, push back, push back and then you know a couple of days ago, the administration said, Okay, we had been trying to get the people out of the Upper West Side Hotel, which meant that we were moving people from other residences to make room for the people in their portside hotels and the pushback to that was, it's like dominos. It's like you're moving people around. He can't do that. So the whole thing is put on hold until you know representatives from the city can meet with members of this community and try to, you know, come up with a path to her forward.

"Katz Materials. He's the host of Cats round table discussing the state of New York City right now, the state of New York State right now the state of the union and we begin with the success. These last weeks, I will recall two everyone. Mr. Katzman Tate is John has spoken with Deputy Commissioner Police Commissioner John Miller about the state of affairs on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, an exclusive neighborhood that is celebrated worldwide. It's the home of many members of the editorial boards of all the newspapers and John Miller lives there and the police commissioner Dermot Shea lives there. However, these weeks it's been troubled. By a decision at some point by the city of the state to give temporary housing two men who are deeply troubled addicts or near to addicts. Men who are recovering. Out of either incarceration or halfway houses. And one particular hotel was mentioned again and again by Deputy Commissioner Miller. The Lucerne Hotel. John. Very good evening to you. We have good news to celebrate. The city is going to reverse its course. Well. The good news is the Westside group that was 13,000 Westside Liberals, which is firewood makers are Iran as a liberal. We're angry as heck on DA. They hide Randy Mastro, who's a great lawyer and a common sense lawyer, and he appealed to the mayor. I guess there was always the threat of a lawsuit and the mayor are Ah reverses course. And I mean those people urinating on the street defecating on the streets. I mean, it was just a horrible situation. On the mayor back door and cleaned out the Lucerne Hotel in moved all those people Uh, someplace cells. So we got heart of the problem on the West side solve. We still have criminals in the street. We still have dances in the street. So It's a partial victory and tights, people with courage to stand up and yell on DA. That's what it takes. Sometimes on the puzzle here, John is does this story reproduce itself throughout Manhattan because we've spoken of the difficulties of the people who live in Manhattan or having I'm certain it's the same for other boroughs. But it seems concentrated here because so many people have either moved away or are no longer trusting on the street. Can this same story be reproduced? Ah, throughout the throughout the island, John your opinion. Well, my fellow a couple of hours ago, we had Councilman Corner G on DH. We had Ah, the president of the Sergeant's whenever association Mullins and on DH we had Curtis reporting in from the street. And there are a lot of concerned citizens constantly. Current. Carnegie is one of the common sense Councilman and I urged them to get more of a coalition of common sense Councilman to do something about it. Because there was it's just wrong. What's going on? We are handcuffing our police officers instead of hanging, stopping the criminals. The puzzle also is about the finances for the city. You've spoken of this, John and we've spoken of it. And your recommendation, of course, is that the federal government provide not only funds but a monitor. Do you believe that the present condition the change of mind by the mayor. Will that be the first of other changes of mind about taking help from the outside and allowing other people to look at the budget? Because right now we're facing a shortfall. Well, let me tell you what's happening in Chicago Tying General Bar was on television during the day and he sent in that new group of said. And the crime rate. The murder rate in Chicago was down 50% in one week. Now, if the mayor called Apollo, the governor calls upon the federal government and say help And we could clean up New York. But like Sergeant, Mullen said with the Sarge's Benevolent Association, we don't need help. We just don't wanna R. Ah Police officers handcuffed in their ability to do the job. But we also you know what happens if there's a one year minimum on carrying a gun. You know how many of those people that 1000 arrest? We NATO in jail, right? None. None. I know an and when they get to the gym now, John one other matter that of concern We have been talking for 24 weeks half a year now about reopening Manhattan. Do you know I can't? I don't What is holding back the decision to reopen men. And if New Jersey can have indoor house endure dining? Why can't Manhattan it's just across the river? Well, it's politics. First of all, the governor took me up a hand today and says restaurants and open September 30th, but only 25% of the space. Ah, now, you kids, you know, you know, restaurant and staying business pays real estate taxes on only occupy 25% of his face. The restaurant owners are suing the state but $2 billion, saying to him or at least give us 50% of the space and will space of customers. No way apart we want we want the restaurants take for courses, but we don't want to put him out of business. There's gotta be a middle of the road. And there's gonna be common sense in Albany, and it's got to be common sense of the City Council. Does this mean we can move on to reopening theaters, Reopening Lincoln Center making making social distancing? I understand everybody had We had. Judy Abrams on from the theater district is a famous producer in the Theatre area, and she says she doesn't expect the theaters open upto. The fall of 2021. Now all those actors is like 90,000 actors out of work. And usually they're waiters when they're out of work. All the restaurants are closed, so they have no jobs and wars. There are other things to be opened up the barber shops. The gym's We have a lot. Manhattan needs to rejoin the world, John and it can soon enough. But let's right now celebrated success. I'm goingto lead at the feet of people talking such as your show Cats round table. That the Lucerne Hotel is to be emptied of nearly 300 deeply troubled people at 79th and Amsterdam, right in the heart of the Upper West Side, John So we take him across the street. It's across the street somewhere near where the commissioner and the deputy commercially lived, and but it's problem. It is progress, and we'll take it for now, and the mayor changed his mind. And that's a good course. Jon Katz Matty's show, his Cats round table, It's on Salem News Network and W A. B. C on Wednesday afternoons at five o'clock and another show cast Roundtable on Sunday morning at 8:30 A.m. on John Babbs. This's the John Bastard..

As we are everyday at this time, we're joined by Nina Man Joni to find out what's going on on the interwebs wcbm dot com and the Wcbm Facebook page. How's it going? Great. Thank you. Derrick. First poll question of the Wcbm Facebook page. Very simple. Does President Donald Trump deserve the Nobel Peace Prize? More than Barack Obama did? Yes. No or not Sure, we'll see how Ah People answered that one some other headlines. It's like saying this Kobe Bryant deserve his scoring titles more than Ideo. Well, I didn't really windy scoring titles. I never shot a basket and pro basketball. So yeah, probably. How many wars was a mama? Did he have a son during his country's than anybody since FDR But hey, what is going to Dio? A lot of peace there. Well, here we have a local store. I thought this was an interesting one box. Baltimore does a great job with these says here. Law enforcement in Maryland believed hundreds of suspected members. Of the notorious M s 13 gang have set up shop across the state. Trying to spread fear through violence is good article there. In the General Assembly. Derek, you would think that Emma's thirteen's completely made up better yet. I mean, it's almost like down there. They wouldn't want to start a scholarship fund for some of these gang bangers because they really deny every time I would speak on the floor and some other Republican delegates and It meant a lot with the same old. Well, you guys just being racist. You're just trying to scare people. Yes, a cz. They kick a decapitated head under the desks and nobody sees it. And then there was a murder in Baltimore County just a few months back as well. And that's 13 related. But some other headlines here did you see, American Airlines announced that will allow their flight attendants to wear black lives? Matter pins when their uniforms check out that two other headlines these air both good news, but until after election day, you don't know if these are accurate or not.

Nino that's looking like, at least as of now course never spiked the football on the five yard line. But it looks as of now that the Trump Coalition could qualify for a best picture nomination. According to the new standards, I'm trying to think of like the perfect movie that could be nominated for best picture. Be like a story of an aboriginal transsexual who moves to Mexico City because they have a dream of opening up a taco shop in East ST Louis, and it follows the path there and, along the way falls in love with an androgynous being. Of no known origin. Oh, that's Oscar gold right there. My God! What they're doing to society is just Sick. All right. This story. I love NIMBY stories from Lefty's The Not in my backyard stories from lefties New York Times New York will move homeless men from liberal neighbourhood after backlash What? Why would they do Liberal people are upset that homeless people putting up homeless people in AA lot of posh hotels in Manhattan because they're antique is nobody's going to New York was like 36 states on the list from the New York State said You Come here. You gotta self quarantine from 14 days. Who wants to take of three week vacation so you can enjoy one week in New York, where everything is closed. And if you leave your hotel room, you could Possibly be beaten up shot, see something disgusting or whatever, but Nearly 300 homeless men who had been temporarily living in a hotel in the upper West Side of Manhattan will be relocated after weeks of backlash from some residents who said the men had diminished the quality of life in the upscale network. A neighborhood. The city has moved the mandala the Hotel Hotel, the Lucerne in July as a part of the effort to curb the spread of Corona virus in New York City's dormitory style homeless shelters. Overall, thousands of homeless men and women have been placed in area hotels, but A decision was met with particular blowback on the Upper West Side. You will not find a deeper blue area in the face of the earth than the upper West Side of Manhattan, becoming a test of values, where a largely white neighborhood with a reputation is one of the most liberal enclaves in New York. And elsewhere in the country. And a private Facebook group Upper West Siders for safer streets. Many commenters said that the men menaced pedestrians and urinated and defecated on the street. And that they used and sold drugs in the open. So what are these rich liberals Do this say? Get rid of this. Send it to poor minority neighborhoods were rich whitey, Don't you get it? Maybe they're all film producers. Maybe they're all members 50 Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. But my God, it just shameless again. The left will never hold itself to the standards. They insist everyone else be held to under any circumstances. Some residents formed a nonprofit. You know you're dealing with a whole bunch of people with money when they got the time to do this, dedicate to this and then form a nonprofit to try and keep their names out of it. The Westside Community Organization and hired a lawyer and former deputy mayor Randy Mastro, who threatened to sue the city. These liberals are putting their money where their mouth is.

"Michael Riedel. Morning. W A war Well got a little dicey there between me and New York City Comptroller Scott Stringer, who's running for the mayor over the stop question and frisk because No secret around here. You know, I'm pretty friendly with Bill Bratton and his wife, Rikki Klieman. And, you know, Bill put in open windows and stop question and frisk And I thought it was very successful. And Scott Springer land which is bad anyway. Now is a terrible thing of his racist can throw people up against the wall. I'm sorry, Len, if you look back in the history of this city Open Windows policies, broken Windows policies, I should say and stop question and frisk. They worked to bring down crime in the city. You cannot erase history the way a lot of these progressives want to do. Well, All I could say is speak Tio David Paterson tomorrow about it, and I'll tell you about relatives of his who got stopped and fresh just because they were black and for no other reason, So I really understand both sides of the argument, and he claims that the crime did not go down as a result, so You have to look at the statistics. I guess so tomorrow. Natalie. Let's try to get our buddy Bill Bratton on the line so he can defend stop question and frisk because I know he fundamentally believed it was important at the time, but may have been over used later on, but it's not something to throw out so All right up on the Upper West side that they Lucerne Hotel. They had a lot of homeless people living there and Upper West Side. Residents were up in arms about that, because really led to the deterioration of the neighborhood and Randy Mastro. He's a lawyer who represented the Westside community. They're trying to get rid of this homeless shelter there Little certain hotel and apparently, they have succeeded. Because the mayor has announced he's moving those people out of the hotel. Randy Mastro was on the phone. Good morning, Randy. Pleasure to be with you, Michael in line. Kate Reddy. I ask you something, though, Deal risk representing these people on the Upper West Side is hypocrites because I'm sure most of them are liberals. You know, they're would never support Trump. And they believe in all the good things for homeless people on handouts for homeless people in taking care of people in the welfare state, but not in my neighborhood. You put the homeless people in my neighborhood. I want them out of there right now. Are these people being hypocrites? Absolutely not. If you've been to the Upper West side if you're seeing what's happened to that beloved neighborhood in recent weeks It's shocking is shocking to say open and notorious drug use and needles on the street, public urination, defecation even Even public sex acts and without proper screening. There were individuals located at thes SA ra hotels, but criminal records who shouldn't be anywhere near a school under state law, Yet they were placed there. Fact of the matter is That what this community cared about was not only protecting the neighborhood but doing right by the vulnerable population that was placed there on DH. That's a win win for both sides. This is good for the neighborhood. This is good for that bonus population because Soro hotels are not where you should be housing, a vulnerable homeless population that needs social services on site they need to be in shelters. Proper state accredited shelters whether Get their social services. So this is a win win. The community organized came together, expressed their concerns and to his credit. The mayor heard those concerns and has now taken action. That's a win win for everybody. Hey, Randy and round with Randy Mastro, The attorney representing the Westside mean the organization. I saw the reports that you had said that the mayor had agreed to close down a second hotel. But apparently City Hall is is disputing that. What's the story on that? Actually there. There isn't any real disputes in the statements that have been put out by the city and the climate Homo services. This is a first Wave of closures that Lucerne um on the upper left side at the top of the list, being in a closed Tio vulnerable population and population being moved to proper shelters. That's gonna happen immediately and be completed in September. Then that said he talked about Prioritising other s r O hotels to do the same thing because as a matter of city policy, as our hotels are not wear the city once Homeless populations to obey and discussing publicly prioritising Ah, a ah next wave or further hotels. That will no longer be used. The city specifically mentioned that that LeClair as well on the Bella Claire being within 10 blocks of the looser. There was 330 hotels on the Upper West Side, where in the space of a few weeks City relocated more than 700. Homeless adults into sorrow. Hotels on the Bella Claire is very near Lucerne. The Bella Claire is where I was publicly reported Several individuals with criminal records, who should have been nowhere near a nearby school under state law had been housed improperly, so we're pleased that the city has said You know publicly that it's prioritizing additional s arrow hotels to cease using that the Bella Claire is on bad list. All right. Randy Mastro, fighting for the upper Westside Community. Against all the mayhem and chaos that is happening in these neighborhoods. Thanks a lot Ready appreciated. Thank you Take care. All right now for the news at 9 30 from job, Arlen. Good morning. Good morning. Michael. The U. S.

"Your uncle David in something like this way? Need Hill Boys. First The news. Hello. This is Julie Candler with the BBC news. International efforts are underway to help Greece cope with the aftermath of a fire that destroyed the overcrowded Moria migrant camp, leaving nearly 13,000 people homeless. Extra police have been sent to Lesbos. Mike Sanders has been following developments there strong suspicion that it was arson. There were reports that some of the migrants were unhappy about plans to move them into warehouses to prevent the spread of Corona virus. The police were cordoning off the roads during the fire to stop them reaching the local towns. Now there has been some help offer. The UNHCR, The commissioner for Refugees has said that it will take some action. Now. The European Commission of the home Affairs of the Johansson has said that she's agreed to finance the immediate transfer and accommodation on the mainland off the remaining 400. Unaccompanied Children and Tina just The European Union has called for an emergency meeting with the British government over a post Brexit bill that counts across a previous deal. The European Commission president, Ursula von Dir lion Said she was very concerned about London's intention to breach the withdrawal agreement. Here's Rob Watson. Nobody would dispute this was, you know, outrageous, sort of unthinkable radical, foolish depending on your choice of adjective. The question is why? I think the theory is Is an attempt to pressure the European Union and this latest round of talks to come up with something by the deadline that Mr Johnson a set of October the 15th. Now that is the UK strategy. Of course, people will question whether it's a wise one, and whether given the international reaction so far where there isn't a danger that it will completely totally and utterly backfire. President Lukashenko's security forces appear to be concluding, neutralizing the leadership of Belarus is opposition, most of whom are now either detained or enforced Exile This morning, they picked up Maxim's knock to interrogate to move a possible sedition.

They have stolen our country. Now they're trying to abduct the best of us. But hundreds of others will come to replace those who have been taken away from our ranks. It wasn't the coordination Council that rebelled. It was the entire country that rebelled and that's really reflecting a broader point really that though the opposition leaders are being rounded up, it seems pretty much one by one. That's unlikely to have much of an impact on the demonstrations because they are very much decentralized, organized by groups of strikers of workers and students, not particularly led by these opposition figures. World News from the BBC. This is WNBC in New York, four minutes after nine o'clock. Good morning. I'm David. First it's 73 degrees in Central Park going up to 80 this afternoon.

Any repairs that aren't complete before the first day of full time teaching. Ah, and learning will not be used.

"Colleague John Catsimatidis, who is the host of Cats round table. And John Catsimatidis is doing the legwork of putting together the crisis of the 19 seventies with the crisis of 2020. John. I was away a week so I report my surprise coming back to Manhattan. I learned that the mayor is making remarks about cutting the parks Department about cutting emergency services. We know the mayor has spoken and acted about cutting back the police it very much looks like a city in retreat. The explanation the mayor offers. Is that he needs supplements to his budget. Because of the shortfalls in the long shutdown of Manhattan and the Burroughs, however, the state Legislature was his Domina get dominated by the president by the mayor's party, the Democrats. Have rejected them that the mayor's appeal these shutdowns, John these cutbacks. 22,000 is the number used. I read of cutbacks in this city services. This is going in the wrong direction. John, can the mayor be stopped? Our interrupted her in some way challenge. Good evening to you. Good evening. First of all. Nobody says that talks about the 35,000 employees that were hired by the city. When I ran for mayor in 2013, the city had 270,000 employees They hired 32 33,000. It's up to three. 303,000 employees. So before you fire basic people and you scare tactics, you know, lay off the police. When you get a layoff, the parks Department before you do that. Let's find out where the 33,000 employees are that you hired and I think it comes down to you know, the city thinks that Ah, and I hate to criticize the mayor, but he's wrong on this one. They say it is the fact is that And the city Kingo one, But you can't put 33,000 people on and not have a budget crisis the way we're having right now now. We had before my show that we had Richard Ravitch John, who was the monitor that was put in by the state back when Cox was mayor. And the monetary exact money that was loaned to the city. I think the federal government loan $3 billion to take Ah and Three big dollars. I'm sorry on the fact that he was supposed to monitor how it's being spent, and how the budget is run. So I confessed it that if you didn't demand money for Mr Trump and President Trump, I am sure That they would demand to have a monitor put in because why should we give Check begin dollars. That's their attitude. Why would give $10 billion to New York and continue to elect them? Spend it the way they want to spend it. Versus what the essential needs of the citizens of New York? Er, We've got to protect our citizens. We gotta clean up the crime. The crime is running rabbit. He let out a ll the criminals out of Rikers Island. And I know we played this before, and they put him on the streets in New York, terrorizing our citizens, Citizens. I'm not going to come back. The money is not being going to be put in. Unless it is, let's say quality a monitor somebody the monitor kind of money is being spent and how the budget is being administered because it's not being administered correctly. John Can we bring the governor in on this governor? Cuomo has said things where he he seems sympathetic and well informed about the state of the city. He's in fact in these last days Made mention of the shootings across the state, but especially in New York, which is a way of talking about violence. Can the governor appoint a monitor or exercise some control over the mayor's decision making? Well, I I believe that Governor is capable of doing it and should do it, but sure that it didn't ask the federal government for the money. Ah, then the federal government's gonna wanna have input on who the monitor is. One of my observations John in these last days because for various reasons I was in New York during the heat wave. Most recently is that people are now trying to dine at restaurants that have Tables on the streets under umbrellas. You know, there's some control at least because we're not allowed to dine inside. However, you mentioned the homeless. You're aware that people are being persecuted when they're dining on the street. And that on the Upper West side, their articles about people with Children who are being threatened or harassed by the homeless who have been moved into certain hotels in the Upper West Side. It seems very much like No one's in charge of City Hall. John. It was it seems like it's worse than that. We had courteously well, who's lived his life on the streets trying to protect New Yorkers on the show, and in the Upper West Side there was while people were dining and outdoor cafes. 26 shots were fired. The good uses they missed all Ah, normal citizens. They missed. 26 shot people at the restaurant at the duck. I mean, is out of control. Nobody is doing anything about it. I had Randy Basco, who was ah, very fine lawyer. He was on the show, too. And I asked Randy Mastro, can you bring federal charges? Over a mayor over City Council. That that refute that interferes with the police doing their duty because the police have duties to perform and if somebody is telling them you can't performance or you can't arrest those people. Then is going to be ah, crime being committed, But if people stopping the police from doing their job John, You've made it very clear that you're looking hard at running for mayor again in 2020. I don't 2021. I don't have nothing to do with have been running it. It's a long way away. Running for mayor. Hi a year and a half away. We've got to protect citizens this week. This month.
