Biden calls on Congress to tighten gun laws in wake of mass shootings

"Democrats in Washington, including the president are calling once again for new gun control legislation after two high profile mass shootings in a week. President Biden says he would support a new assault weapons ban and universal background checks. Republican resistance has stopped that sort of legislation from passing. In recent years. There has been more action on the state level, though. And Nick Penzance toddler has been following these issues for U. S A. Today welcome to all things considered happy to be here. There's this common line that there hasn't been much new gun legislation since the shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, almost a decade ago, and that may be true at the federal level, but things look different in some states so Tell us about some of the most significant changes that you have seen at the state level right? He actually was truly at the statehouse level. There have been between 1,502,000 bills introduced every year over the last decade, maybe only a few dozen of those get past the prince's insistence Parkland in 2018. There been more than 100 and 50 of these gun control laws passed at the state level. So that's everything from expanding background checks to putting restrictions on who can buy Young's prohibited purchasers to these extreme risk protection orders these red flag laws where you can petition the court to take guns away from someone that is deemed dangerous, And when you look at the new state legislation does this fall out along pretty predictable blue State Red State lines or where is this happening? Yeah, it's really interesting. You see some of the bluest in the Blue States, California, New Jersey, Connecticut, Hawaii, New York. Who are routinely introducing new and strict gun regulations that often filter across the country. And then you see the predictable red states. The South and Mountain West kind of tiptoeing into those changes or even opening up gun laws. And then there's kind of everyone in the

What the Second Amendment really meant to the Founders

"You know, in my intro and then earlier segment early in the show I was talking about The primary purpose of the Second Amendment, according to the founding fathers, and I said My piece told listeners what I thought that the primary purpose of the Second Amendment, according to people like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, What is in Mark Walters Mind the primary purpose. Of the Second Amendment. According to the phone and fathers. I love this because it's so provocative and I love to be provocative, and I'm gonna answer that with a question. Here's my question to you. We just talked about what Biden wants to do. Virginia the first time the Democrats took power in Virginia, for example, in 25 years. What's the first thing they did They chucked 12 Gun control bills down there. People throw up. Eight of them passing was signed into law. Joe Biden's first deal is gun control. I'm gonna answer the purpose of our founding fathers in the second Amendment with this question to you. What is it about their communist Marxist socialist masquerading his former Democrat agenda that requires you to be disarmed? Yeah. Very good point. And it would appear that great minds think alike because well, you know, we are way have Yeah, Me and George were in the world. Good company together. Way. Agree with each other. Martha. I guess the question is You know what is going to happen now? I mean, I look at it. It's like Texas that are actively talking about succession. Oh, yeah. You know, California's got bills by others, three different deals. They want to split that stable. You know, he was a really simple, quick Virginia. You know, I spent many a graduated college in Virginia. Lots of friends there lived in three different cities in Virginia know it well. It's a gun toting gun, love and freedom, love and bright red State. You've got two counties up there that control everything included with Richmond. The rest of the state is bright red. Why don't we have any electoral college at the state level? Okay? Yeah, Which would be which would kind of solve these problems. Where you New York State's a prime example. You get rid of that cess pool in Manhattan in the boroughs and New York State is a freedom loving, bright red state. Upstate New York's bright red Yep. Okay? Absolutely, you know, and you get rid of I mean term limits. Term limits scared me a little bit on Lee, because, well, what happens with term limits is you get the next term. Someone knows that's there. They could do anything they want. They're no longer held accountable to the voters that they don't have to hope if voters are hold them accountable. You know that old So what We do have term limits. We have elections. That's true, But they turn out the way they do in states like New York and California. Because we've got to a point. We have two or three cities controlling the rest of the state that needs to be looked at. Yeah, Georgia just gave you two of the worst senators in this country's history. And this is a bright red state. That isn't gonna be blue anytime soon. You look at the legislative makeup in the state and their redistricting coming up in July after this legislative session, you want to see Democrat controlled the state level the state Don't think of the rest of my life. And yet we just handed you too. The bluest worst of the worst senators, not because any red counties flipped blue. Nothing did They were able to siphon off more votes in two counties not being the cabin Fulton County And their six swing states. Basically, that have to fix their election systems of the way they do things in Michigan and Georgia. There's two of them right there, but nobody knew George was one of these states until that, you know, action. You see, that's why that's why people George, I would have never Guest. I wish Now, I will say this that we've been watching Stacey Abrams here for the last two years. Prior to the election in November. We all knew what she was up to. And here's the thing. I watched her vote on local news that night. Now here she is a resident of Atlanta. Hmm. And here she is. Dropping off an absentee ballot in a little mailbox been in downtown Atlanta. What? Why are you standing in line like the rest of us? Okay. That's where fraud comes from. Yeah, no signature verifications. Everybody gets mailed about it and they could go drop it in. No, no, no. No. Where I come from absentee ballots are for people like you who are serving their country overseas that need an absentee ballot Kids in college that can't make it back to their district to vote. My mom and dad who might be in Florida, and they're Georgia residents because they're they're from that's an absentee ballot. So those those issues are being addressed. Those issues are being addressed. They cut all ties to our gun rights, By the way, Yeah, and we'll have to address them on a different show because we are of time here, Mark.

The Unrelenting Force of Dawn Staley

"So josh. He recently had a long conversation with basketball. Legend dawn. staley. I for those who might be less familiar with her career and background. Can you give us a quick snapshot of just what this woman has accomplished. Well i don't know if i can do it quickly. It's a long list. She was a two time. Ncwa player of the year. At virginia she went on to be named one of the wnba. Top fifteen players of all time daily off screen getting that bit rates jabber every time. She comes down with a line drive. She has a board time olympia and as the player time overall including her coaching career. Staley underneath will sell it. Twenty three game winning streak for the united states. She went directly into head. Coaching style was never an assistant coach. Her first job was the head coach at temple and she came to south carolina following a fairly long career temple and has taken south carolina from okay program to a national championship in two thousand seventeen. South carolina spectacular. Performance chappie you dug pretty deep into you. Don staley's background her early background. Can you tell us about her early days and her family growing up well. She grew up one a big family lot five kids. The matriarch of the family was estelle salia housekeeper. They grew up in a housing project in north philadelphia. Not easy but still staley was a disciplinarian in her daughter's words and everybody knows my mother. She's a headstrong woman. She's deceased now but she was known for her straight took. No nonsense backed down from nobody. You did not take her parking spot at the mall without a fight etc and down has carried that onto a much larger stage so just a very tight family and still somebody who's very much shaped by her mother and be the course of north philadelphia where she played against boys for most of her childhood and became not just very good but very tough. The neighborhood i grew up in you had to make sure that you had a reputation as being strong then back now from anybody was able to handle anything that was throwing your way and that has prepared me for any curve balls. Life can throw me north philly. Tough was the word her brother used. And they don't throw that around lightly a connection between the way she was raised where she grew up and the kind of basketball coach that she's become a where she was raised in where she grew up has affected every part of her. She is not a person who on some days. It's easy to play for our imagine especially early in her tenure at south carolina there were players who left the program high profile players. Who left the program. I would think don stay. They would tell you. She may not be for everybody because she is not going to suffer any foolishness. She will defend those players outside the program to the end of the earth. But that doesn't mean that she's going to give them an inch when they're in her. Jim staley has also become one of the more outspoken coaches and all of college basketball and josh recently wrote that quote staley. Mary's attributes that many have decided are incompatible. What did you mean by that. Well she's just fascinating to me because she is a black woman in the state of south carolina who has been pretty clear that she's not donald trump supporter. This is a state that voted for donald trump. So she's really walking a fine line there when she's got a lot of fans in a red state and she's pretty blue person but she's also shares a very strong christian faith with most south carolinians. She has been outspoken about police. Brutality inequality in the policing system at the same time. She's a special deputy at the rich county sheriff's office. She regularly rides armed with rich. County sheriff's deputies on their patrols. I do think that's relatable the coaches like some of the things that they do the de-escalate or tactics they use is relatable to deal with every day. Leon lot longtime sheriff of richland county said to me. If she wasn't a basketball coach she'd be a cop. She's just got that demeanor. Help people i mean. And that's what law enforcement should be about is about helping people and she wants to know people. She has a gift to gab. She can talk. Do you have to have good communications. Feel today law enforcement officer. She has that so you can't put her in a box and that's fascinating to me. How do you think she navigates. Straddling all of those worlds. She said to me that she is not stressed. I can't be anybody but me but at the same time you know. Most people here at south carolina in south carolina. Accept me for who. I am and i'm good with that and i'm good the ones that don't but i don't think there's a grand plan. I don't think she has an outline. I think she takes every interaction every moment and she deals with it very reflexively face what you could teach me something you can over me up to see things a little bit differently then. She's not a person who will not listen to somebody who has a different opinion. She says she craves hearing those different opinions. As long as the conversations can be respectful and stay within certain bounds. She wants that to happen. I can foresee a day where dawn staley is sitting in the middle of colonial life. Arena in the court at a podium and just taking questions from tons of people in the audience. Who don't agree with her on anything politically or socially. I think she would love that. I think she wants that stuff. But i don't think this is part of a bigger plan. I think she just deal with it from her. Core and then goes to the next day. Does the same

"Or how would you break that down for us. Yeah i mean. I think it's important to look at the evolution of governor abbots response. I mean early on. I would say he really tried to strike a pretty politically balanced Reports he issued a lockdown Early he you know against A lot of the wishes in his conservative base. He did issue. This mask mandate from the summer. Which we we kind of came to learn was did not have a lot of enforcement Teeth behind but nevertheless was at least a symbolic kind of Symbolically-important move that he knew would be politically fraught But as we moved more into the fall and you saw the campaign season heat up And then ever since the elections The governor has taken a much more Conservative approach and and all of his the language that he used to talk us uses to talk about the pandemic and the response. is kind of rooted in in reaching out to that that core base that he That he needs. I mean it's it's also. Just i think significant to to recognize that he made this announcement in lubbock You know speaking at a chamber of commerce chamber of commerce meeting He goes to lubbock whenever he wants to make an announcement that he doesn't want any Any questions about The the press pool here in austin doesn't follow him doesn't follow him there And he knows that. So this is This this is all kind of around and the other thing to also note is just that. There's a lot of talk about governor abbot running for the presidency and in four years And you've really started to see that kind of Heat up in in the in the language that he uses to talk about the biden administration. I mean yesterday. He was on twitter and on on local television stations. You know already setting up this dichotomy where You know any new out.

My concern is that Texas is getting ready to host the The national college championship zip as long as nit. Those athletes are coming across the country to go into texas right. And will they be real precautions. Be put in effect so then when they return back home. They don't say anything to our here in new york in across the country. That's a great question in another potential implication for us all jeremy. I don't know if you've reported on that particular conference But if people are coming from every state having to do with I guess they say high school sports. Then there's the possibility of if they're not practicing the kinda physical distancing that other states practicing anymore bringing stuff back home absolutely. i mean. i think they're still trying to figure out all of the The attendance restrictions in place for that that tournament I imagine there will be some sort of reduced capacity attendance. I did look up while we were talking. The attendance for the For the spurs I haven't seen one for the toyota center. But for the spurs they are they are going to start allowing Fans back in about thirty two hundred fans per game.

"So it's not the most accurate measure. So they started looking at other things. What what was that metric. You're you're giving us fifteen percent but it's a pretty unique metric And i'm not sure other states would necessarily want to use it The metric is basically we have the state broken up into regions and in each of those regions the number. If you take the number of hospitalized people and then you take the you know you take the number of people who are hospitalized with known. Covid cases infections And if the percentage of those those covert patients is over fifteen percent that for seven consecutive days then that region needs to take some or you know going forward it will be able to take some limited restrictions in place but but that has been in place since october that there has been kind of a rollback restaurants need to reduce their capacity bars. Can't be open that kind of thing but it's really i mean it. It's not. I would say completely welcomed in the public health community because by the time you have fifteen percent or more of your hospitalized patients having Covid you normally have a pretty large outbreak. And there's a lot of community spread and it's so think there's been some pushback Around just the fact that the hospitalizations aren't aren't a great metric to us. Because it's it's really catching catching the infection rate at the tail end when people are actually sick. Brian in dallas brian. You're on wnyc. Thanks for calling in. Hey brian Brian propels kitchen. But now i'm brian from dallas at least temporarily I am really struck by a as an outsider. Here i'm struck by the cultural difference That i thought was political as an outsider republican versus democrat liberal conservative. But it's not really there's this texas swagger there's this you can't push us around everything's bigger here we're going to drive the big trucks when the world no matter what's happening to fossil fuel industry attitude. That is true. The end that i've met and so i'm not at all surprised by The governor's decision and I think Probably liberal places like houston and others. That responsible be different. But broadly. I texans are gonna be thrilled to get back to doing to you. Know to to their normal lives and not letting this virus tell them what to do It's really strange coming from new york. Where when i was there. The attitude is exactly the opposite. We're gonna do whatever we have to do to beat this virus and here they just want to ignore it brian. Thank you very much for your call. So jeremy blackman from the houston chronicle.

"My daily politics. Podcast from wnyc studios. It's thursday much. Fourth here are two story about texas in the news right now that should be of interest in every state one is that houston has become the first us city to find every covert variant present in the local population. That was in the houston chronicle. On monday we'll talk to the chronicles health and politics reporter. Jeremy blackman in just a minute. They have every covert variant. That doctors know about the other story. Is that the very next day. Tuesday governor greg. Abbott announced that he is lifting all covert related restrictions on businesses and individuals. It is now time to open texas one hundred percent so no more mask mandate and everything can re open at one hundred percent capacity. So how do these fit together. This finding every variant in houston and reopening the state and what are the implications for the rest of the country on the houston story the article quote scientists at houston methodist hospital saying they have identified twenty eight different variants now circulating in the city including the uk. The brazil. and i know you're going to cringe. What is starting to be called the new york city variant and yesterday according to the new york times By state cova tracker two hundred. Seventy four texans died from covid a sixteen percent increase compared to two weeks ago but in his tuesday announcement governor. Abbott said this. Kobe has not like suddenly disappeared. Kobe's still exists in texas in the united states and across the globe. But it is clear from the recovery's from the vaccinations from the reduced hospitalizations and from the safe practices. That texans are using that state. Mandates are no longer needed governor. Greg abbott on to stay now that full lifting of limits takes effect next week next wednesday and texas by the way also on tuesday. Mississippi's governor announced the same total lifting of capacity limits and in massachusetts a liberal state with a republican governor. Charlie baker all capacity limits on restaurants are about to come off now on. Msnbc's morning. joe this morning. Here's how dr fauci responded when asked about what texas is about to. Do you know my strong advice to. Then joe would be to actually continue to implement the public health meshes now is not the time to pull back. The good news is that we have vaccines coming online. You saw the curve of the infections per day coming down but over the last seven days or so we reached a bit of a plateau with the deflection of the curve. Isn't going straight down the way it was. That's a bad sign. We've seen that before. We've seen that last summer but we were trying to so call. Open up the economy and open up the country when we said there were certain guidelines that you should adhere to and as you know there was variable adherence to those guidelines and then we had that really big surge that we don't wanna repeat now. I mean we were going in the right direction. Now's the time to keep the foot on the accelerator and not pull off. So dr fauci this morning and as usual scientific but diplomatic way president biden.

"Trump is scheduled to speak at the cpac conference on sunday while americans go about living their lives. Political reports trump is expected to attend the rnc upcoming spring donor. Retreat in april quote. The rnc's donor. Retreats are a prime stop for future presidential candidates who use the events to establish relationships with wait for it. Major contributors Back with us tonight. Abc veteran washington journalists and associate editor and columnist over a real clear politics and matthew. Dowd he is the founder of country over party. We should point out. He is a texan. Who has a new appreciation for a hot shower. Since the cold dark outage of late and in the past matthew was chief strategist for the bush. Cheney presidential effort Back in oh four Welcome to you both. Ab you right with your usual candor and clarity quote just six weeks. After a deadly insurrection against the us government republicans are past their horror and hopping eagerly back on the trump train. The new twenty twenty one ticket price. They must buy into his big lie. That brings us to the question a. b. if trump is the banner under which they all must run under which they all must try to raise money he lost. How can that be a winning strategy. Whatever he says goes so you saw that. Nothing made it more clear than the house. Gop whip steve scalise going on tv. The sunday after his visit mar-a-lago where apparently they just talked about their families and how chill and relaxed. The president has been in his post presidency period at his resort and he just could not bring himself to say that this was a free and fair election. He said yes. Legitimately biden one when he was pressed by jonathan karl of abc news because elector said that on december fourteenth basically. He said a lot of sing. Swing states just didn't follow their own state laws and a lot of people are very concerned so what you do is instead of spreading the big lie. You never defy trump. You never disavow it and you never spell it you sit and you never discuss. How pernicious and dangerous. It is liz cheney and adam her and others have you just sort of try to circle around it because quote your constituents buy into it. And that's what's gonna keep you in trump's orbit if you want to keep your job in twenty twenty two. Matt voters have a funny way of kind of market testing ideas on their own and figuring out what. And what's gonna fly. How is this gonna fly especially in republican tightly contested suburban races two years from now. Well i think it does well in republican primaries. So i think that's the issue and that's the real problem for the republicans right now. They know that. Donald trump tests eighty eighty five percent popularity among the voters at will participate in republican primaries even in republican primaries in purple states or in suburban districts. That are swing districts. The problem is every time they venture into capturing that republican primary voth it more and more offense the people in the general election so it gets okay in a red state or deep red district to do that but when you start to try to win in suburban areas around houston suburban areas around dallas suburban areas in michigan suburban areas in california. It becomes exceedingly problematic. An i think that's the problem there in though it doesn't seem like they're in any way trying to confront that general election problem that they just keep pushing that often it's somehow they think is going to solve itself. It's almost as if they're going through this primary. They did in two thousand fifteen in twenty sixteen where they thought that donald trump problem would salve itself or he would peter out or nobody would deal within or somebody else would handle it and they didn't have to and then what they ended up having donald trump the republican nominee and then donald trump the republican president and now donald trump the republican president. So i do think it's his party. I don't think there's any question anymore that it's donald. The drill pay party is now the trump party and everything that donald trump does from town to what he cares about to. The conspiracy pushes is the republican party.

President Biden Has Promises To Keep

"Back in november latina and latino voters helped deliver the presidency to joe biden in key swing states like georgia and especially arizona. Let the next. Voters helped turn former red states. Blue and during the campaign biden made a long list of commitments to our communities on day. One i'm sending to the united states. Congress a immigration bill. We're gonna find those kids. We're going to unite them with their parents. The opening school safely will be a national priority for the biden harris administration. Reverse trump's rollbacks of one hunter public health and environmental rules biden has said he'll invest in education and healthcare for letting us he said he'll stop border wall construction and that he'll work with congress to create a path to citizenship for undocumented people but in also said he'll crackdown pollution in communities of color and reduce incarceration so in the lead up to the inauguration that usa reached out to young denness and latinos around the country to your what promises they're hoping biden will keep and what they want biden to do that he hasn't committed to yet plus we're going to speak with these young people about how the changes they wanna see would actually impact their own lives. We're going to start this very non. Comprehensive survey by speaking with virginia. Blasio's virginia's a ninth generation daytona who up near a city on the texas mexico border were in the south texas. Brush country so a lot of trees and prickly pear cactus virginia is also an environmental science and policy consultant that usa producer. Scarsi spoke with virginia. And she's going to pick up the story from here. Virginia lives in a rural area on a fourth generation. Cattle ranch that been her family of for close to one hundred and twenty years. We inherited it from my great uncle. Who was a grand champion calf roper. During the great depression he traveled the radio circuit with his brother. You know they were fortunate enough to be born into families that had a lot of land and so they were able to run cattle and support their families. That way and my dad was enamored with that history of cowboy culture. He virginia and her brother on the land. She remembers running around as a little kid watching her. Dad moved these huge cows from field to field and she thinks growing up this way set the foundation for a love of nature that eventually led her to go to grad school to study climate change. And that's where she was. When in two thousand eleven he had still all the cattle on the ranch because the drought guy particularly bad and There was a national study. That came out shortly after that drought showing bet Climate change me the heat waves longer and temperatures more intense that year and so we know that climate change has already been impacting us. There had always been droughts in south texas though. Virginia says they got worse and worse over time. It meant the grass wouldn't grow. Which meant virginia's dad had to start buying a lot of food to keep his cattle alive so much so that he wasn't making money off his ranch anymore. You know it's kind of funny. Because i was always kinda hassling. My dad was like dad counts. Produce methane and methane is really bad for the climate but when it came to the point where he had to sell them because he realized a drought was so bad. It put things into a different perspective for me. Because i realized that he really didn't have a choice. I realized that we had kind of gotten into this plane. With climate change where it wasn't theoretical. It wasn't something far off in the future that could happen. It was it was happening now

What's happening with minimum wage increases

"The minimum wage is something that i had to walk up to see what the federal minimum wage was. Do you know seven dollars. Twenty five cents an hour. I didn't even know that because it's become increasingly irrelevant as you drive around most urban and suburban areas you'll see signs now hiring and it will say starting at whatever number of dollars per hour and nobody's talking about being at seven dollars twenty five cents an hour the federal minimum wage. The idea of it just see you know was originally about giving people a wage that would keep them out of poverty but in recent years. It has nothing to do with that. It's just a marker that is a minimum theoretical amount per hour was shared with you back in november. You have state after state where citizens given a vote without exception have chosen in states. That allow ballot initiatives to raise the minimum wage and the public consensus is very strongly towards raising the wage and the move is really clear with the whole concept of fifteen dollars. An hour A lot of retailers a lot of grocery sellers going to fifteen an hour as their minimum pay The german fast growing german supermarket chain leader has recently started at fifteen an hour which was a big increase from what they were paying two people and so the marketplace is moving that way state voters are moving that way and do you know that twenty states raise their minimum wages this year and a number of states are doing graduated increases again to that theoretical fifteen dollars an hour. I remember when this all started in my memory. Serves me right. The big push up in the minimum wage started in seatac. If you're familiar with what seatac is Seatac is the name that everybody uses for the airport for seattle. That is mostly towards tacoma but kind of towards seattle and they just call it seatac in the area right there is called seatac and in a move at the time that people said would lead to massive unemployment. there was a big push to a very high minimum wage at seatac and that was really the kick off of what's happened around the country and so it did not lead to any increase in unemployment. The economic theory is it would actually does shift employment of jobs that exist. go away you think about in fast. Food restaurants is shared with you a good ten years ago from traveling overseas in countries that had high their their equivalent of a high minimum wage. You could not order from a human you could only order from a computer screen a touchscreen and as minimum wages go up. You see that happen but even with that fast food outfits are always looking for new workers because of turnover so it shifts the nature of work. And i historically have been opposed to Government impose minimum wages and. I realized a while back that. This was an area that i was wrong on and we were putting people in a position where they could not deal with. Life's daily expenses and having a higher. minimum wage. was something that my classic libertarian. Kind of thinking. I was just wrong and so this is a move that will continue. It puts pressure on employers a lot of job classifications as they see their labor costs rise. No doubt that puts pressure on the profitability of a lot of small businesses. It is something that is clearly going to happen. Is voters in red states and blue states unanimously given a choice a chance vote in increases in their state minimum wages. And i think there's a really good chance in twenty one that will see an increase in the federal minimum. Wage adopted that will phase in over a number of

Why the Georgia Senate Runoff Elections Matter

"Let's talk about these runoffs. That's happening january. Fits for georgia. We have senator. David perdue running against david also off and then we have reverend raphael warnock going against khalil. Lafler a Jacob can you explain to listeners. How important this is for georgia to win the senate for the democrats okay and so important thing about it. Is i think that people think the presidency is the polish right. And they don't understand that it's really the legislative branch which congress congress has the power. They'd passed the laws. The president's job is to sign laws into power. Have you signs off on it. But he's not really the guy that it aside from executive orders executive orders are not laws right they can be overturned but no matter which president comes laws are passed by congress right it goes from the house. Representatives to the senate in laws of pat. So again you have laws. Currently that's been bills that have been four hundred bill sitting with mitch mcconnell. He hasn't passed. And that's because republicans. Control the senate simple bills at nonpartisan bills. Kamala harris and tim cook from south carolina republican Senate on the anti lynching. Bill blocked by mitch mcconnell. Simple things like you know first responders bills right that helps them blocked by mitch mcconnell. There's many bills that sitting there for hundred because he has the ability to do it because the republicans control the senate ranks it will data with matt would what what a what. Joe biden does at that moment. if he doesn't have a lot more control a set because what you run into is. He sends a bill down a he goes to. Congress said hey i want to. I want to put this particular bill right now. He talks about systematic races and he turns around to nancy pelosi. And says hey. I want to do something about systematic racism and they create a bill and because the democrats control the house right. They can pass that bill. Then it goes to the senate mitch. Mcconnell and the republicans who says there's no such thing assistant Can block and then. Joe biden didn't have the water that bill down to a bill that they think is worse than passing less removing things from it or adding things to just so the republicans pick pass it or he'll have to as an executive order and lo and behold for years from now of a of a trump gets elected again just reverse and will react to start again and so the important thing is if you get and a ed to place but democrats and republicans will then have equal amount of people in the senate and kamala harris i'll mix vp. The vp of the united states is the president of the senate. Yes yes oh she will sit there and then she will be the deciding. Vote on all these lots should break the filibuster and so if you wanna see certain laws get through. It's important to get out and get these. These two gentlemen elected as sems. Senators have more power than almost anyone in this country. As where does that but they did. The president uniquely enough. If you look at the history. America but president was really put into place to deal with international affairs more than he was put into place to deal with domestic affairs. Congress really dealt with domestic affairs. The president was really because it was a of different states right and they operate with only kind of presidents called governors. Had been own congress with investigates which is the paper had on supreme court's that they own police force their own military force but they did not know how to deal with national international issues. Like hot. who's gonna deal with us. We're going to deal with london. England who's going to france was going to deal with germany. And who's going to deal with all this stuff international fuss. We need to nominate a national guy in place undo. Vat stunts for us. That's how it originally started loan and so the as time went by the president became more and more empowered but at the beginning. They just wanted him to deal with like. How much are we going to sell. Cotton ustralia for. Who's gonna talk to australia for us. We can't have fifty governors right right so we have to nominate two senators. I stay with nominate people from within the district's in america to go to a federal house. We got to nominate someone on top of them and then they can handle the guys on of the senators on the house of representatives which created congress national dishes fuss and then the president can handle international issues like if we decided to go to war outside. The president can do that right internally. We can handle right. So that's how it really started. As time went by the federalist which is people that wanted federal power to control more the president of more and more more more power within the state within the country so always understand that senators have a ton of i and we have to make sure and the map is set up. It's two senators for state. It doesn't matter if your california was sixty million. You're you're not the cold with nine hundred thousand. It's two senators per state and if you notice there's more red states than there are blue states so it's very interesting high back stabler thing. Worse and senators can stop everything they they they're responsible for nominating supreme court justices involved in pass laws and the bacon block you. It doesn't matter. What joe biden tries to do. You'll have to use the executive power or he has the water down that bill right to stop you. Don't like lights cryer. Bill ninety four where he had the water bill down as a senator so that to get the republicans supporting you get three strikes. You're out and then you get this. Mass incarceration everybody gets mad at him and he's like well. I can't acid through the senate without involved in them because we don't control the senate and so they put things in and we put things in and you get bills that don't turn out the way you want it to but you try to get the best of both worlds to get the republicans to sign off. So it's important to understand that we can't put the president in place and not help him with backing him up with the senate the vp can sit there and as the president of the senate. She can help to move things away. We need to move

The Times Called Officials in Every State: No Evidence of Voter Fraud

The Times Called Officials in Every State: No Evidence of Voter Fraud

"The Times called officials in every state no evidence of voter fraud. Can you tell us how that reporting assignment went? How the story was reported leading to that sweeping conclusion. Yeah, we started with the thought of you know, there's been all these allegations coming from the Trump campaign and Republican allies about widespread voter fraud and all of these irregularities that, you know. One of the election away from them. So we started it at first, you know, just contacting the specific allegations they had made in states and election officials in those states and we thought was we were doing that. You know the whole Picture that I've kind of been painted by the president is campaign and the Republican allies you know, from before the election dating a long time ago. Has been that the you know, kind of United States electoral process is rife with fraud. Which is just not true, eh? So we thought we will reach every state and talk to the top elections official in every state. Most of the time that the secretary of state occasionally there's election commission like in Wisconsin, where there's top election administrator on bee Just ask them, you know. Have you seen any evidence of fraud or any kind of other irregularities? Would have played a role in the outcome of the presidential race. Whether it would you know, have these impacts. And we heard back directly from 45 of them on. They all said No. You know, they're very decrees of thing. Absolutely not. This is ridiculous. This thing our election was Smooth. We're proud of it. Um With it did not get back. What's already need statements saying as much on Ben the only one that didn't ever directly respond to us was Texas. But we contacted the top elections official in Harris County. The here is kind of clerk, his office and Harris County is home to Houston, and it's got a population of about 4.7 Million, which is bigger than about 25 states. And then they saw no evidence. So that's kind of how we went through everything T get to the conclusion that we drew. By the way, I think I Said. Your last name wrong. It's chorus. The needy. Yes, it is. I apologized in chorus in 80 from the New York Times Our guest. Let me stay on that aberration of Texas for a minute. Cause you reported that the Republican lieutenant governor of Tenet of Texas, Dan Patrick, already infamous for saying old people should be prepared to die from the coronavirus. So younger people can live normal lives that Dan Patrick he has offered. A $1 million reward fund. For anyone I should say. Established in $1 Million Reward Fund. I guess it wouldn't all go to one person for anyone reporting voter fraud. But Trump won Texas. So if his reward fund is intended to help Trump flip the results, How does that help? Exactly there is. It's not necessarily clear whether lieutenant governor Patrick's reward was just for Texas or whether you know it could be one of these, like we're seeing a couple of funds pop up. Among right aligned groups that are like offering rewards for reports, sir affidavits of voter fraud but you know, kind of looking beyond that. Yeah. We're talking about Texas, and we're trying to say, you know, did Texas experience any of these irregularities or anything? Obviously, from what we heard the prevailing answers? No, even though state officials never got back to us. If you'd wonder why Lieutenant Governor Patrick would feel the need to announce Uh, fun to reward reports that they already had a conference of evidence. And you know his. He has been, um Pretty vocal, making claims that you know, without any evidence that there was kind of widespread voter fraud in the past, so it kind of fits with what he is has said kind of throughout his career. But it certainly doesn't necessarily instill any kind of confidence again that there's any major evidence in Texas if you're offering money to reward reports of Voter fraud. And since Texas was still a red state in this presidential election, wouldn't it be funny if his million bucks turned up so much Republican voter fraud in this state that he wound up flipping it the other way, But of course, there hasn't seemed to be evidence of widespread forward on either side. So I guess he's not worried about it. It's political theater in

"red state" Discussed on The Brookings Cafeteria

"Your books provocative analysis of Red and blue America that it's a far more than just that kind of simple divide except when it isn't as you point out later on, but it ought to begin first with the whole red state blue state idea. Where did it come from? You know the red state blue state idea has been around for a while and this particular version of it the idea of focusing in. On the Blue Metros came from a meeting that was held at Rice University all the sunbelt centers that do public policy in the sunbelt. And it seemed to be a general view from Georgia, all the way through Arizona Nevada. That the big Blue Metro in states that are either swing states or slightly tilted slightly tilted blue have a contentious and complicated relationship with their state capital, and they also determine whether or not. The president has those votes in the Electoral College or the Senate or the governor's races. The statewide raises wind up in the rhetoric blue hands, and that the balance of the state is much more conservative than the Blue Metro. So hence, the Blue Metro's red state about. And a lot of this also was informed by our own lives here in Nevada were very much of blue metro red state, and then we actually begin the book with an anecdote out of Nevada about a measure that was passed to. Regulate. Private gun sales the only county passed and was Clark County, which is where Las Vegas is, and then it goes to the Republican controlled government that time they don't implemented, and then the Democrats get control of the twenty eight hundred. That's the first. Substantive policy. Bill then. Your Book looks at Thirteenth Swing State state settled determine who gets elected president of the United States and you set certain parameters for inclusion in that group of States allstate's that contain at least one metro area with population exceeding one million in two thousand, sixteen presidential election was decided by ten points or less why those two variables. I can take the first and I think that the Brookings Metro folks would agree with this people like bill fry. That there's something different about million plus metros that they tend to have some of the most important assets, really essentially all the key assets when it comes to engagement with the global. Economy. You know have all the key airports, all ports they have most of the country's patents, and when you get to the scale of a million people, you tend to be diverse enough and you tend to have a kind of cosmopolitan feel that separates you from a metro of. Thousand which you can be a metro of seventy, thousand, two, hundred, fifty, thousand. So. Just to finish that point place like Burlington, Vermont doesn't Metro within Vermont, but it's not that different than the rest of Vermont whereas Dave alluded to earlier there's something quite distinct about the size intensity, the density of Las Vegas, and then the rest of a rural state like Nevada. And then the ten points was trying to get what we thought would be typical swing states. You know the Upper Midwest, those states Virginia's well, but we also wanted to get some of the emerging ones in the Sunbelt Georgios. which had gone back and forth last couple cycles Obama when at a in the Republicans carrying problem sixteen, but we also really wanted to get tech center because we think the dynamics in Texas are really fascinating with four big major Metros when Clinton narrow the gap and sixteen in the Assad better work eighteen almost knockoff Ted Cruz there in the course. Now you see all this intensity about Texas than the potential go blue. Right. Yeah. I WANNA. Come back to that near the end of the thirteenth states that are in the book are Nevada. Texas Georgia. Ohio Michigan do this remember. Pennsylvania Arizona Florida. Virginia. Michigan and Wisconsin. The large extent right across the different regions of the country. Right. So it's wide ranging can be said that you had to small an end for the study. Classroom. So there's half of the Metro's above a million wind up in that mix of sticks, for example. So twenty seven. Metros and there's fifty plus naturals above a million pending on the week that the census provides the update. So you have essentially half the large Metros in that mix. So some of the macro, defining characteristics of the major metro areas that you've found that lead them to vote blue.
