Republicans Push Back On Historic Nomination Of Deb Haaland For Interior Secretary

"And Natural Resource is committee today held confirmation hearings for New Mexico representative Deb Holland to be the next secretary of interior. A confirmation would be historic. She would be the first Native American Cabinet member in the nation's history. Her nomination by President Biden has also been criticized by oil State Republicans because of her stated opposition issues such as to fracking in the Dakota access pipeline. Ecuadorian reports from Fresno. The history being made by Deb Holland's nomination was hailed by all on the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, even those who are skeptical of her policy views The special nature of the moment was evident as the New Mexico congresswoman introduced herself to the committee and the nation. I spent summers in the Sita, or small village on Laguna Pueblo, the location of my grandparent's traditional home. It was there that I learned about my culture from my grandmother by watching her cook and by participating in traditional feast days and ceremonies, it was in the cornfields with my grandfather, where I learned the importance of water. And protecting our resource is where I gained a deep respect for the Earth Committee chair, Joe Manchin outlined the immensity of the task. The Interior Department manages 500 million acres of land. 1/5 of the entire country. The 70,000 employees oversee Parks Monuments Wildlife refuge because dams, reservoirs and canals. It also supervisors mineral resource lands that produced 20% of the nation's energy. Citing previous statements Deb Holland had made about fossil fuel production. Wyoming Senator John Barrasso, the committee's ranking member, set the theme which Republican members came back to repeatedly. Oil production in federal lands and oil pipelines, especially the Dakota access pipeline. By signing an executive order to ban all new oil coal gas leases on federal lands. The president is taking a sledgehammer to Western states economies. Ban on federal leasing could result in 33,000 workers losing their jobs in Wyoming. Representative Hollins home state of Wyoming, 62,000 workers stand to lose their jobs. Holland also faced questions over her appearance at protests of the Dakota access pipeline in North Dakota before she was elected to Congress in 2018. Holland said she went there in solidarity with Native American tribes and other water protectors, who felt they were not consulted adequately before the multi state pipeline was approved. President Joe Biden has sense next the project. Conservative

Jamie Kern Lima on How We Can Go From Underestimated To Unstoppable

"Jamie kern lima on dose of leadership. This is amazing. Welcome to the show. Richard thank you so much and excited to be here to share this special moment with you your whole community to you. So it's an honor. Thank yo i gotta tell you. This is an amazing piece of work. You should be extremely proud of yourself for this. I don't need to tell you that. But i mean just from a reader. Just read this. And i've read it and i told you in the prerecording i got this. You guys fed ex this to me monday. I think got it. And i got it last night so i read it nine pm here. It is the next day. I finished it at one pm. Amazing book i just i love it. It made look. I'll be honest with you. It made me cry. I've never cried in book. it made me cry. Maybe he never cried. Okay not in a not in a book like this. I mean maybe in a fictional book. Or something yeah. It's an amazing story. Thank you so much. It's and you know it's been a journey. I think everyone of us has has a story. And i think you know just all of us are kind of on this journey. I think of. I mean for me. It's really it's really you know. So many people think oh. Is this a book about how you went from. Denny's waitress to leading a business. A billion dollar businesses like that's part of it but it's really a story of a girl who went from not believing herself to believing ourself and like not trusting myself to list like to learning how to hear my own gut instinct and learning how to trust it And just learning how to break through all that self doubt that. Hold us back so often and why i wrote. It is really like for a lot of years. I would get these. Dm's on instagram. Where people say. Oh i saw your your story Like hat like was it. Like did you just get lucky. Or because all that's out there is kinda like the headlines. And i realized oh if i don't share if i never share the real story behind the story like how it all happened years and years of rejection opposition and all those things than it's like so many other people out there that maybe are trying to launch their own dream or maybe they're trying to be a better leader or whatever it might be are gonna feel alone and their struggles if they're just reading like the highlight reel of people's success is online and so this is the first time ever but i just i took everything and kinda like throughout that filter out the window and just poured everything i had every personal and professional life lesson i've ever learned and my hope is just. It's absurd for anyone else out there who's really on that journey of like breaking through that self-doubt in and an on that journey to becoming the person they're created a bi. No i mean it's it's it's it's a prescription boards a recipe that you've kind of attacked life with anyway. What thing that's really kind of. Come out of this show and all these conversations when people ask me well. What are the biggest lessons that you've learned from talking to all these people and your book hits all of these these points that you know the prescription that is needed so that is in such lacking in everywhere we look. Is this authenticity. This transparency there's vulnerability which lends itself yet to be courageous. If you're gonna do those things because we suck adams human beings you know what we're bombarded with from our limiting beliefs are doubts. The pop culture the the social media now that just even feeds on that. I mean everybody deals with this head trash this limiting beliefs. These self doubt. It's a constant battle. You still battle with the today. I it with everybody that had on. The show has said that. And that's been a big moment for me on this show and a relief a sense of relief and reading. Your book is kind of the same feeling. That god is when you read it and because you're so authentic you're so transparent you're so vulnerable in this book and you have been in your whole. That's why you've been so successful and entrepreneur in in your brandon's accessible because of those things what do you think when you hear me say that that authenticity transparency vulnerably. That's the currency that's needed right. It is and it's scary for so many of us. I think that you know you look at so many of the studies out there that show. How like it's impossible to have a real human connection if you show up as your representative who you think people want you to be in the and the only real way to have a human connection as show like only parts parts the messy parts but a lot of people who know that awesome miss that connection of like our relationship with our customers also needs to be an authentic one our relationship with our teams and our employees also needs to be an authentic one and we ended up putting so much pressure on ourselves right social media your point to that too but we think all i a leader acts this way or we learn these things and we end up showing up is our own representative and then you know what i've learned and i don't wanna like jump too far ahead give anything up because there's so many crazy stories in the spot but wanted the leadership lessons i would say and life lessons frankly that i after which is three years of rejection a crazy story we finally got one shot on qvc. I can talk about only only if you want to but but you know being on. Kabc for united about a thousand shows live myself. And so i've met tens of thousands of entrepreneurs and brand founders and senior executives. That will go on the television for their company. And it's like all the years when i look back at. What is the commonality between the people that made it and those didn't because most people in the space they they get one shot on air and they never come back because they don't have the sales goal or maybe they they come back twice or three and then they're gone so i've seen thousands of people leave and then like what's the commonality between the ones that lasts and literally. It's not who's smarter. It's not who's more qualified or more accomplished. The people that will lasted were the ones that were the same off air in the green room as they were on here for better or worse like some were wild and crazy in quirky in somewhere very conservative and quiet and like but they were the same and it's because that live on air to one hundred million homes you can't fake authenticity and the only way for customers to connect as when you show up as you you fully are in the thing that one of the things i talk about in the book is In believe it is this lesson. I learn which is that like authenticity. Alone doesn't guarantee success in authenticity. Guaranty's failure

'A Death Sentence': US Prisons and COVID-19

"People are some of the most vulnerable took over 19 since March, researchers say more than 1600. People in jails and prisons have died of the disease, and tens of thousands have been infected. Some states have started to vaccinate people behind bars while others have not. And we're gonna look now at how this is playing out in three states. Alison Cherry is with Colorado Public radio and she joins us from Denver. Conrad Wilson is with Oregon Public Broadcasting, and he's in Portland. Joining us from Boston is dead Backer with W. B. You are good to have all three of you here. Hi. Hi. Hello, Dev. I want to start with you. In Massachusetts. Your state included prisoners in the first phase of its covert 19 vaccine plan. What was the rationale for that? Well, we know that the virus transmits quickly in correctional settings in the risk of contracting the virus and dying from it are much higher inside prisons and jails compared with outside. So in deciding to vaccinate prisoners. Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker, a Republican, said that correctional settings are no different from other congregate living situation, such as shelters and group homes where people are living in Copan close quarters and the virus can easily spread. So here's what he said last month when he explained why prisoners were included in the first phase. Our facilities are congregated facilities and we need to make sure that the people who work there and the people who live there because of the possibility of outbreak that that should be a place. We focus early in this exercise. The governor says it's strong public health policy because it's not just vaccinating prisoners. Workers are getting the vaccine to any pointed out. There are lawyers to go in and out of prisons in jail's medical workers, visitors those who provide programming, so the states thinking is that offering vaccines and correctional settings will help prevent the spread in the community. And so far, how is the vaccine rollout going in jails and prisons in Massachusetts officials say it's going smoothly, but it appears that a lot of people are not taking it. Court documents in particular shows that about a third of prisoners in more than half of prison workers have not received the vaccine. Now. That number does not include workers who may have been vaccinated elsewhere. So some correctional facilities are holding vaccine education sessions to encourage people to get the shop. Okay, let's turn now to Oregon More than 40 prison inmates have died after testing positive for covert 19 in that state. So Conrad give us a sense of what's happening with vaccines there now. Almost 7000 inmates have been vaccinated. That's more than half of the state's prison population. Many of those inmates have received their second dose, prison officials say, but vaccinating this many inmates this soon wasn't something Oregon health officials were willing to do on their own. Took litigation from a group of inmates on din order from a federal judge here in Portland. Basically, the inmates argued Oregon's vaccination plan didn't treat them like others living in nursing homes and other congregate care facilities where the vaccine has been administered. Your state representative General Bynum. She's a Democrat and chairs the Oregon House Judiciary Committee. I didn't understand how our adults in custody, we're any different from any other group in a congregant care setting. And I certainly don't believe that a prison sentence is a death sentence. The judge's ruling at the beginning of this month force the state to offer inmates vaccines immediately, So that's why about half of all prison inmates have been vaccinated. Let me jump in here. This is Alison and Denver Advocates here wish that that would have happened in Colorado that court ruling con artist is talking about in Oregon. Is something lawyers here have been trying to use as a tool to get inmates vaccines, and I know there's been a back and forth over this in Colorado. Alison tell us more about what's been happening there. Yeah. Democratic Governor Jared Pulis hasn't prioritized inmates at all. And initially he did in one of the early plans, but then Was called out for that by some prominent conservatives, You know, people saying, Do you want the murderer to get the vaccine before your next door neighbor and he was apparently sensitive to that, and so he removed prisoners from the lists and put them in just the regular population. So in other words, he's making no distinction that these people are in a group setting a 70 year old prisoner would be prioritized. A 70 year old non prisoner and so on. So the majority of prisoners are not being prioritized. I will note that prison staff has been prioritized in those vaccines are being administered now. So tell us more about the pressure that Colorado's governor has been under Well. He's gotten a lot of pushback for his decision to not prioritize inmates for vaccine for getting a vaccine, and he's also been sued. He has thought that lawsuit successfully so far. Rebecca Wallace is an A C l U lawyer, she says. Public health officials have been universal in saying that people in groups heading should be prioritized for a vaccine and governor pull. It has actually not only ignored that guidance but rejected that guidance from his own Colorado Department of Public Health on by think it really stand out because he's such a data driven individual in his other decisions. I'm curious. Early in the pandemic, there was pressure to release inmates to create social distance inside facilities that were often crowded. Have vaccination efforts change those conversations in the states that you're all in? Well in Massachusetts. Despite the early vaccination of prisoners, there has been little movement to release people. The fight over that continues mostly through litigation. There are pending lawsuits, but with so many prisoners getting vaccinated now, it does weaken the argument for big releases. Yeah, and in Colorado. Interestingly, the state's prison population has gone down by a few 1000 people since the start of the pandemic, But state officials attribute that almost 100% to the fact that there were no no criminal jury trials last year at all in 2020, so there's this massive backlog in the States Criminal justice system. So you've brought us three very different stories about policies around vaccinating, incarcerated people in three states that are very different across the country. How does this fit in with what we are seeing across the US nationally, Conrad Well, every state is really dealing with this a little bit differently. And, you know, really, This is another symptom showing a lack of a national strategy. Despite the risks, it's another way of, you know, also showing how inmates are marginalized by society. And this isn't just about those who are incarcerated. In a recent report by the nonpartisan Prison Policy Initiative, researchers found that there were more new cases and counties that have large incarcerated populations.

I'm sure once he brings it up with city council they'll dismiss it out of the way completely but of course some of our online journalists have gotten a hold of it decided well agree that maybe it is time to make nashville look a little bit better on the public spectrum on the nationwide spectrum on the world wide spectrum. I didn't realize there was such a big deal with city flags. I know the chicago city flag. Because it's been a part of my life forever but a city flag. Are we really worried about that. Right now and come on nashville. Let's get back together.

Patience While Waiting on God

"First of all. Let me tell you what patience is. And what it's not. Patience is not just waiting on god. We're all gonna wait on god. Everybody whites even nature weights flowers. Wait trees wait for the sunshine in the rain. We're we're all waiting for the provision of god but patients. Listen is how you behave while. You're waiting time to wake up how we behave while we're waiting on god to do what only god can do says so much about our character and we need to have real stable godly character. Not just a fish on our bumper. A man and a hawk. If you love. Jesus bumper sticker we. We need more than that. And we need to do. More than just go to church on sunday and thank. We've done our little bit. We need to get out in the world and behave as jesus. Would you know the bible. Says we are his representatives. That god is make listen to that they got is making his appeal to the world through us. You may be the only jesus your neighbor overseas and so it's very important that we have some of the same situations in our lives that they do but we handle them in a totally different and godly way. Your example is very important to the world so the bible tells us that we're going to have to wait and that we that we need to develop this fruit of patients and patients comes from a greek word. That says it's a fruit of the spirit that only grows under trial. So you you know. That's why i don't like to pray for patients because they know they're gonna get trouble but do know how wonderful it is. Not that i've arrived but a little taste of it. I've been at this now for forty years so hopefully imperfectly. You learn little something in forty years. And i've still got a long ways to go but god has really changed me and i have stability in my life now. At least most of the time. I can behave the same way when things are going. Good as if they're not going so good and that is so important for each of us to realize that we can't just go up and down. Our circumstances go up and down and be motionlessly. Moved by everything that's going on in our life. The bible says we walk by faith and not by sight. So that means we're not supposed to live according to how we feel and according to how things look are how they same but according to the word of god and god tells us that he could. He is to be trusted that he will take care of us. I want you to listen to me today. God will take care of you.

Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner gives update on power outages and weather impact

"With me now is houston mayor sylvester turner previously served nearly thirty years as a texas state representative. He is in a command center right now. Monitoring situation in his city mayor. Thank you for taking a little time with us. And i don't want to start first with things aren't houston. Are they getting better. Chris in the last twenty four hours. Things have improved yesterday. At this time we had about one point. Three million customers without power Today as i talked to you that number is under thirty thousand in houston region yesterday The the water pressure was extremely low In fact hospitals were having a hard time getting but they needed Just to run a bear chillers to stay warm and other necessities today. The water pressure in the city of houston has increased And hospitals in much better shape at the same time people many of the people able to flush their kamoze improvement with still not wear. We want it to be but yesterday the pressure was below what we call twenty. Ps today as we speak that what a precious right around thirty so being things improving but again we still have some tremendous needs at. They're just zero in on the water aspect of this has been one of the more harrowing parts of it and a kind of a kind of cascade effect. We're going out water treatment facilities. Just explain to me what that means that it does. It mean pressure. Now you can you can. People can run water in their homes. That firefighters have water that hospitals have it is. That is that where things are correct. Hospitals now have watered. That can run the chillers. Keep the patients that doctors and medical staff Warm in in in in cool weather so to speak People able to take showers. Peabody plus two komo but because the water pressure dropped below the regulatory requirement twenty. Psi you automatically have to give ball water. Notices so you have over seven hundred jurisdictions around the state of texas a chieftain san antonio austin example in many others where there are bald notice requirements and that will continue to be the case probably through the weekend at the earliest that ball. What notice could probably be lifted on sunday. But i think for houston probably be monday. Which means if people don't have power because just also ball your water about two minutes but what happens if you don't have power then people are going to rely a great deal on bought a water and that's why starting today We started distributing water to those persons for example. Who don't have the means to go into a grocery store and purchase tomorrow for example will be masked water distribution site in the city of houston where we will probably give out tomorrow anywhere between seven to nine hundred thousand bottles of water primarily for people for families who already on the modulus. Chris and they just can't afford to go in and purchase two and three and four cases of water. And we'll do that Tomorrow saturday sunday until this ball. Water notice has been listed. That's really that's very helpful in understanding where things are. Let me let me also ask what your interfaces have been. With spill state and federal government i know females on the on on the ground. Have you been talking with aircraft that run the the grid with folks from fina. The federal government and with governor abbot. What are those interactions been like. Well i've talked several times with the ceo. Behead of eric hot And n n what he will say to you. Is that the system that we have in the state of texas. Our texas korea is designed for the summer heat. It is not necessarily designed for winter storms and then as relates to this. What happened in this. In the last four or five days that was simply not enough adequate generation supply available to meet the demand and the supply that they had reserved so to speak when with shop when some of the facilities came all flying of been made things even worse and let me quickly speak to those who are trying to say. oh the wind turbine frozen. You shouldn't be looking at renewables as a false false aligned. Being put four because the plants that came off line while natural gas plants coal fired. Plant Nuclear plants came offline. You wind turbine strobes. So it was a combination but when it comes to win and sola that's still only counts for a fraction of the energy that's produced in the state of texas. The rally at reality is that the state was. Ill prepared The other thing that i would add when i was in the legislature but twenty three of my twenty seven years i said on the on the committee that oversees our electric utility industry back in twenty eleven fouled a bill saying to the public utility commission that we need to exert greater oversight over urquhot to prevent blackouts of every kind that we have are experiencing in texas for four for these last four days batmobile. Chris was never given a hearing. And so for anybody. Who's just trying to place the blame on irc That's not enough as part of the story but it's not the total story. Archive is an agency of the state of texas is the leadership of that overseas or cat and what happened in this week with the failure. Not just urquhot but of the statewide leadership state representative state senators. Who didn't do enough to make the necessary. Structural changes prevent what took place this week but mccurry and as a result of that hundreds of thousands of texans paid a horrible price and they are number of stony that we live in the city of my city that anada that not allowed to date to go into next week.

"Covert vaccine are having trouble to put it mildly. Getting an appointment to get that vaccine. Dr fauci says it might be time to create a new vaccine to deal with the new variants factor. Peter hotels joins us next already planning and implementing making a modified version of the vaccine that would ultimately be able to be directed specifically against the south african isolate. Which is the most problematic of them all so on the one hand things looking a bit better about plateauing but on the other hand we can have some difficult times that we have to be prepared for strenuous. Now's dr appear hotels dean of the national school of tropical medicine. The baylor college of medicine and director of the center for vaccine development texas children's hospital in houston doctor. How does thank you very much for joining us tonight. What did we just hear a dr fauci suggesting that we need a new vaccine ought to to deal with the south african variant. What does that mean for. People who already have the vaccine that doesn't deal with that parent well so so lawrence will sort of so the bottom. So we're also developing our combat in protein vaccine. That's being scaled to a billion doses in india right now with biological e in hyderabad and being tested across india. So it's clear that the existing vaccine in the long run won't be adequate for the south african variant. It'll will give partial protection some protection to varying degrees. But we're going to have to make to vaccines and the so. How do you handle that. What it means like. There's two options one. You now administer a combination vaccine. What some people call a by mail and vaccine or you move out the existing vaccine. You have knowing that you still have some time in a dot on down the line you're going to give a boost Corresponding to the new south african variant. And i think that's probably going to be the more common option so it's not terrible news. We still have time but This is going to be a something to watch very closely that we're going to have new variants in in the south. African one looks different enough from the existing one that We're seeing lower levels of protection. We saw this with the novak's report today that it gave ninety percent protection against the one it was designed for an only about fifty to sixty percent for the new. Still okay but in the long run you if you know this is going to become the dominant variant dotted line. We're going to have to make the additional so the consumer end of getting the vaccine is a wildly different experience around the country. Some people getting emails from their local hospital saying hey come on in and set up an appointment. It's really easy others struggling staying up till three o'clock in the morning hoping the internet traffic down so they can find an appointment. I've heard from people who are really thrilled and excited that. They finally managed to get an appointment for next week and now they're learning tonight. The vaccine they're going to get next. Week will not be good enough to deal with these south african variant. And i think what you just said. Let's make sure we leave this clear for the audience if you get that first shot next week when you go in for your second shot or somewhere down the road there's gonna be another shot that will deal with the south african baron. So the take home message. Lawrence's nothing changes in the immediate future. You wanna go ahead get your vaccine. Get those two doses but down the line there may be a need for a third immunization a boost And if that boost is not it may be against the south african variant and just to keep everybody calm remember that we thought there was a pretty high likelihood we might have to give a third immunization down the line anyway at some point because we had no idea about the durability of protection of any of these vaccines especially the new technology. Vaccines do they. Last for three months three years or thirty years so everyone was pretty confident. We're going to need a third immunization down the line anyway and all we're really saying is that third immunizations going to have to be a with with this out probably specifically directed against the south african variant that that's the scenario. That's looking the most plausible right now. The one we're mostly in discussions with our vaccine. The other vaccine developers are as well that is an invaluable too vaccine news. Dr peter hotels. Thank you very much for joining us with that tonight. really appreciate i pleasure lawrence. Thanks go coming up. Joe biden got an invaluable gift on inauguration.

She is as they would say if this were tv. Series the breakout star so far of week one of the administration and it's not unusual because the the press secretary is the one who is out there in front of the camera more than anyone other than the president and so She has instantly taking command of that room. And it has been a as you said you know a kind of a shocking gearchange for us and welcome gearchange for us. Deal with And i i love the way Youtube talked about what's happening. What's going to happen. What set the tone for the administration. We have actually heard a lot from the new president in the past eight days. He has spoken publicly a lot. But we we're hearing even more from from from jen psaki in the briefing room. And she's setting the tone of normalcy accountability. Expository work that tells us what the administration thinks. The problem is what they are doing to work on it. Who is in charge of that work and that that person will be answering questions about it as well. Jen psaki on behalf of the entire administration. It's just basic accountability which is basic small democracy which is just a something we were used to before we lost it for four years and now it just feels so radical to get back to it. I hope it never. I would never take it for granted again. I think we have For this year a series of rachel and jen conversations coming up at nine pm et intermittent from time to time that we will all be looking forward to. I hope so very much. Thank you for saying that lawrence. Becker rachel toll. Kona cova was thrown in prison by vladimir putin because she sang a song in a cathedral in moscow. She had a little baby at the time she got out of prison. Because of pressure put on vladimir putin by the united states and other countries around the world she will join us at the end of this hour to talk about what. Joe biden's new pressure on vladimir putin means to the current enormous wave of protests in russia and in our continued concentration on the year of the senate we will turn to the senate's unique and very important function of confirming federal judges. Mitch mcconnell turned the senate into a high-speed confirmation factory for federal judges during the trump years. And now it's joe biden and chuck schumer's turn to catch up dahlia. Lipoic will join us later in this hour to discuss what should be the democratic senate's nonstop concentration on federal judges and what to expect from the presidential commission. Joe biden is appointing to study the possible expansion of the united states supreme court. A federal judge appointed by president. Obama refused to let this guy out of jail this week. Judge barrel how said he would have to remain in jail awaiting trial because quote. What happened on that day in the. Us capital was criminal activity that is destined to go down in the history books of our country. The fbi and federal prosecutors in federal courts are closing in on hundreds of the invaders of the capital but speaker. Nancy pelosi said today. The real problem now is the enemy within the house of representatives. This enemy of the house enemy of the constitution is a member of the house of representatives and she believes all of the worst things that the invaders with the capital. Believe all of the stupidest things the racist things the anti semitic things marjorie taylor. Greens public record prior to becoming a member of the house of representatives was so poisonous that even house republican leaders kevin mccarthy and steve's release actively opposed her candidacy in a republican primary. She publicly supported assassinating nancy. Pelosi and now she is fully embraced by the republicans in the house. And the senate when a poison like that enters your political system and you say and do nothing about it then you are more than complicit that means you actually want that poison in your politics because you believe it will help you carson. Jason crowe will join us later in this hour to discuss what it means to be going to work every day with a member of the house of representatives who has advocated for the assassination of the house speaker into that poisoned system on the republican side of congress.

"Zoe read a reporter for. Whyy's delaware death says lgbtq politicians one races in her state and across the country. We saw historic wins in several local elections and in national elections in alaska louisiana mississippi tennessee and delaware an lgbtq person was elected to their state legislature for the first time delaware though state senator karen peterson came out as lesbian in two thousand thirteen. After serving for eleven years. But it wasn't until this year that delaware had elected a candidate who was openly gay. Tell me about these three new representatives. Who are they. So sarah mcbride has probably gotten the most national attention she was already pretty well known nationally for her advocacy work for the lgbtq community. My name is sarah mcbride and i am proud transgender american. She's the national press secretary of the human rights campaign but she also worked for the campaigns of former delaware governor jack marquel and the late former state attorney general beau biden who we know is the son of president elect joe and she made history at the twenty sixteen democratic national convention as the first openly transgender person to speak at a major party convention but despite our progress so much work remains will we be a nation where there's only one way to love only one way to look and only one way to live or we being nation where everyone has the freedom to live openly unequally nation. That stronger together. One of the most important issues to sarah is medically for all delaware ins. That issue is really important to her because she knows what. It's like to care for someone. Her husband. andy Battled tongue cancer and he passed away in twenty fourteen only days after they got married though is now away from the growing list of states that ensure that no one has to interpret elements again. And what about. Eric morrison eric. Marson is a human resources project manager in delaware and he's been very active in the lgbtq community for years he was also a professional female impersonator for many years. And he's the first openly gay man in the state house he says having people of diverse backgrounds to represents a diverse constituency is crucial. If you don't have to pass the life experiences snaking laws not only. Can they not solve the problem. That a lot of times. They can't even identify. So that brings us to marie pinkney. Who's who's black and gay. Yeah merie pinkney is a social worker. Who is african american. And she'll be the first openly gay woman to be elected to the state senate pinkney says she represents people like her finally having a seat at a table and she also wants to make sure that she addresses the intersection analyses of issues in her platform. Talk a lot about the identifying as les dan. but i'm also a buckskin woman and you know those can be considered three strikes against me. And those are things that along with my sexual orientation that i think matter for other people to be able to see themselves represented in places where we're typically not representative silly. After the election. You talk to a lot of lgbtq voters in delaware and a lot of them said that they thought this election could not only represent a change in delaware but in the country. Right that's right. They say representation matters to lgbtq folks across the country. I talked to jay. Excelsior actually inspiration to eventually myself as a transgender black man. Able to run one day for a senate seat he mentors trans-youth and he said that he got all sorts of emails from those that he mentors who also met my now that they used to do it. He gets that because he says he didn't feel like he was heard when he reached out to his representatives when he asked them to address discrimination he experienced at the workplace even though delaware passed a law. That forbids discrimination against the person on the basis of gender identity in twenty thirteen jay executive. You're told me that it took him a whole year to even get his job to respect his chosen name and he says his representatives never helped him. That i had somebody actually fighting the and who knows my daily simple as a transgender person with my health and medical needs are and others like meet those two and there's also a real concern.

"Knowledge, you don't get in college, but you should about how government works with Kevin McDougal Kevin welcome onto the thrive time show. How are you sir? Clay outstanding. Thank you so much. Always admired you DR Z she appreciate you. Hey Brother I. For people out there who are Google searching your name fast and furiously right now. Tell everybody, what is your elected position? I am the State House Representative for district twelve in Oklahoma. So what exactly does that mean I? Think we have a country right now a lot of people are somewhat politically ignorant of who does what and how it happens, and that's how we end up with crazy people in an office. Seriously, this is how a lot of people are just apathetic to the entire political process what exactly during you do as the Oklahoma House Representative for twelve? Well district twelve is a district. That's in Wagner County. So I've got broken Arrow kushida wagner porter. Okay. that entire community hundred, eighty square miles. In my case there are a hundred one of us spread out across the state. Each one has a district minds big summer as small as two miles by two miles really. Well, all of them have about thirty, eight, thousand people in them. So. Our job is basically to represent the people in that district. So, when you say represent I, want to make sure we get this idea. You. You won't point decided to become politically active when was that? It was about eight years ago when I first ran for office and I was basically just aggravated at government. And I was a business guy and I thought you know what the guy that I was could run against was the one bringing obamacare to Oklahoma and I thought I don't want obamacare and nobody else is running against this guy. So guess what I will, and so that was my first run for office and had never even been to a political meeting prior to that. I have five more rapid fire questions and I'm going to open it up here for the we have kind of town hall of of sorts in our studio today. So As a politician Kevin has thought Asians are really. Hated individuals I mean people really hate a lot of politicians. Do you ever hate yourself? I hate politics. That's for sure You know. I'm I'm not a politician even though I'm in politics right now and I think there's a big difference. A lot of people look at politicians and what I see on the federal level or politicians who kissed and give two different answers depending on what crab there in front of true right that's the typical end game politician. But when you've got business people who get into politics I think it's more like the military folks and that's My background, right. So if I if I go recruit a military person to run for office I, know that at least once in their life, they were willing to give their life for something greater than themselves and in politics too often we see people who are in it for themselves and so I think that's the big difference is You got people are in politics that are not politicians traditional. So what do you do on a daily basis in your role I mean you you? Walk us through your daily flow. Sure. February. Through May we're actually at the State Capitol and that's what we call in session So for four months out of the year, they were March April and May were out of district were at the Capitol we're trying to either create golf or get rid of bad law and our our whole job is to represent the district that we came from. So I have a rule district that's full of farmers and veterans small towns and So my needs for my district or a whole lot different than the needs of downtown Tulsa, right. So I have to represent my district but on a daily basis, we simply as a politician who state government you have to be able to build relationships in order to get anything done. Always thought that once I was elected that I get there, I'd be able to create law. The problem is I can have the best idea in the world, but if my leadership Does not like me doesn't want me around doesn't appreciate something I've done nothing I bring to the table will ever heard. And so you have to be able to not only have good ideas but build relationships so that you can get things done now really I'm not an elected official. So I'm going to say some things that you probably can't say and I just WanNa. Know you you know you're going to be going to the state capitol February, through May your at your in session there. Is it possible to pass some sort of rule some sort of law where GT BYNUM can go in quarantine for several years The mayor of Tulsa? Can you do that? Is that something you have the power to do? Want WanNa put them in quarantine by himself because he's afraid of the virus, he can wear a mask. He can run around there and he can be totally safe. I'll be I'm willing willing to read my taxes. I'm going on the record saying this I'm willing to spend extra one hundred dollars a day every day for the next however many two years to make sure that he is fed and clothed in quarantine I'm willing to pay the tax.

Why do I not tell them what to eat? Out at Burger restaurant. Every day and go get something healthy. Is that my job my job is personally responsible for myself and that's it.

"You know we would have really had to significantly downsize if we were relying on my paycheck. Now kind of carried over none of course on as you go forward I was the one that was pregnant. I'm so happy to see more and more men taking paternity leave that even in thousand five when I had my first child that wasn't routinely done. So I was the one taking maternity leave and then because I, was on maternity leave I was figuring out child care for our children because he was working. So all of these things sort of set up a system where I was really in charge of so much of the child care and then so. Many families are sort of in similar situations and you're right when it comes down to will look we don't have any childcare options. Who's GonNa you know who's GonNa have to stay home and take care of the children and who's going to go to work. It's you know in that type of a situation in my family would have made sense for me to do it because he would have been the one making more money to keep our family going so. Those decisions are being made a and then, and so when we're talking about the policy. I would say some of this is even bree pandemic. During the pandemic I think it's so critical. We get money to get kids back to school Emma, get money out care centers in, and I would argue that pandemic the childcare in this nation was not where it needed to be really empower women especially been all working parents to go back to work with that that great feeling that your kid is in. You know in enriching child care and they're safe and they're taking care of while you're working. If that's a really good point, you're absolutely right there wasn't childcare crisis before the. Pandemic right and I want to talk about that later because I think the picture right now for me when I was thinking about what's happened with childcare during the pandemic it's a really mixed picture. You've got know parents who working from home right and childcare isn't either available or it isn't safe right and then you've got those nineteen million people you know those nineteen million single parent households right and that's another another issue, and presumably there's a lot of overlap with essential workers there leave the childcare workers themselves. So I, mean canoe. Up How the pandemic has exacerbated the childcare crisis well we. Heard from so many people in my district who run childcare centers, it already was a business model where. They didn't have a lot of profit ed to begin with they didn't have a lot of money stored away in the bank and so when the pandemic hit and and nobody else as putting their children in child care in many states including mine childcare, certain of your centers were closed. It really hit those that industry incredibly hard. We know that many of the childcare centers without real support from the federal government won't be opening their doors again and on the ground, just a a and I know you know this shrike stays the same thing you know there were waiting? Weightless of a year Mardi get into a lot of the childcare lie the childcare town, and so if you're a mom and you're working and you get premed and his you think, okay, we'll figure out what I'm GonNa do a childcare in and you have a year way or even if you can get your child in child care, many of the senators don't take very young babies in you have to get back to work fleets. This all adds to the problem so. The. Heroes. ACT But fifty eight, billion dollars into just in childcare funding because it's so critical food his interest rate I think this is not important not just. For really empowering women as we go forward and passed out of Irish I think money is critical it cost a lot when you're having low class sizes when you're having a lot of Geeky. Eager when I've heard from some schools they said if I'd known it a couple of months ago at I know now I would have bought stock in plastics their. Plastic sheeting at you know they're trying to put a plexiglass everyone's safe. So. Critical who put money into but really I have to save the number. One thing we have to do, and this goes for our schools and our childcare centers in our small businesses in. So many of our economy and industry is we've get the virus under control. Acid the plan that was the number one thing on the plan that Joe, Biden and Claw Harris put for getting the virus under control. And I'll tell you what's heartbreaking to me is that we'd missed an opportunity in this country to do that, and because we didn't virus under control now our children are paid for it because like I said, my kids are going to go back virtually. We're GONNA do the best weekend, but it's not the same and they're not really receiving a great education right now, and that's where a family like mine who can actually get their kids online. So many children across the country. Aren't even going to get that that basic level instruction. So speaking of the Biden Campaign you know I know they've propose something like seven, hundred, seventy, five, billion dollars I think overall and part of that includes and this is again beyond you know the pandemic free preschool for three to four year olds. Right course right now states like you said, they're they're long waiting lists. There's no free childcare before kindergarten and I remember my mom and this was you know ages ago. When I was four, she opted to just put into kindergarten early because you know childcare was. So expensive has a childcare package of this size I know in my my memory, my adulthood I, don't remember anything being proposed at the presidential level of the size. Yeah, I. Think it's such a great proposal because I know I, I come from a background of criminal justice reform and when we look at things. That they can really make a difference in in helping people in not having students on the to prison pipeline. As we say, one of the best things you can do is invest in early childhood education and it you know it's not necessarily intuitive right? How does investing in a three year old? Give you gains for a fifteen year old down the road it doesn't necessarily it intuitive look at all the studies. Our invested in Preschool and Save Society seven dollars in sixteen cents in just the outcome of that individual and so I think it's such a it's such a good idea. It's such a great off to invent to invest in early childhood pre, K. and too many times in this country this not a a Republican or democratic thing. This is a society too many times in our country we. Don't WANNA put the upfront investment and things we know were, and we'd almost rather just pay when crisis hit. So we don't pay for headstart, but we pay billions of dollars in prisons across nation. We don't pay for preventative health care, but we end paying billions of medical costs as we care for people in emergency rooms, urgent care for diabetes or care for care for people with really health outcomes. I think plan to invest in early childhood education could not only read great rewards for our society in our country. But I also think it's just it could just really have a huge impact on an individual's lives and their opportunities down the road. So can you talk about the two pieces of legislation that passed the house? There's each childcare's essential act and the childcare for economic recovery of those cover exactly state I know in the House we passed there's a fifty billion dollars of your savings ation find these are. The Community Development Block grants you may have heard of, and he's award able is IT industry and in the child care for economic. Recovery Act, that we passed in the House Helps Bring Twenty Child Within reach of people provides tax credits to support different providers. It makes the child.

Donald Trump's former campaign pain chairman in federal prison. The decision was a blow to what had widely been seen as an attempt by Manhattan District Attorney. Cyrus Vance junior to a hedge against the possibility that trump would pardon manafort for federal crimes. Vence his office said it would appeal. Manafort was convicted last year.

"Procedural hurdles thrown up by Republicans and Mules of complaints from Donald Trump the house of representatives impeachment Juggernaut bore down on its goal on Wednesday evening with the impeachment of the US president likely sometime after nightfall calling trump an ongoing threat to our national security and the integrity of our elections. The House Speaker. Nancy Pelosi Open the debates just after midday onto articles rules of impeachment charging trump with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. A simple majority vote in favor of either article would result in trump's impeachment. Each moment trump was not planning to stick around for the big moment. An accident sheduled had him heading to a campaign rally. In a small city in Michigan Wednesday evening but trump's fierce efforts to seal himself in a bubble of adulation and his insistence that Republicans pretend away the existence of facts facts. Threatening to pierce that bubble could not divert the reality coalescing on Capitol Hill wearing large pin of the ceremonial Mace of the Chamber. Barashi rose to speak on the House floor. Nancy Pelosi warned that our founders vision of a republic is under threat by actions from the White House is this is tragic that the president's reckless actions make impeachment necessary. She said he gave us no choice. Praising the moral courage of our members some of whom in court political risks by backing impeachment Pelosi announced six hours of debate on the matter has speech was met with sustained applause from her caucus republicans accuse Democrats having vendetta against trump and running. What they say was a corrupt process? While Democrats taunted Republicans for not even even attempting to defend trump on the merits trump is set to become the third president in us. History to be impeached joining Andrew Johnson in eighteen sixty eight the Bill Clinton in nineteen ninety. Eight and Richard Nixon who resigned in nineteen seventy four just before he could be impeached with four vacant seats. It's in the house.

"It could be a song a moment a movie. Anything we think is the best of the best of the year here are picks on pop culture happy hour from NPR. And we're back and sue house speaker. Nancy Pelosi made a little bit of News as we were heading into the studio here definitely a little bit of capital intrigue now now so in order to understand what happens next after the house in peaches. The speaker of the House has to name impeachment. Managers these are members of the house. Democrats that will serve service centrally as the prosecution in the Senate trial in order to sort of move. The process along. The speaker has to do that. Those are the people that go and technically inform the Senate that the president has been impeached. Very technical it's a process step. It says it's like so Oldie time like they need to get on horses or something but without it the Senate cannot not begin an impeachment trial so Nancy Pelosi tonight has indicated. She's going to hold back on him. Naming those impeachment managers to see what Senate Majority Leader Mitch. McConnell and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer can come up with in terms of a Senate trial indicating that they WANNA make sure. It's going to be a fair trial Don't know who's going to be the judge the the metric of that who is the arbiter fairness. It doesn't seem like anyone can agree on that right. It's a total. It's been a total surprise in this. There's been some chatter among Democrats that they might do the strategically originally because they don't think there's going to be a fair trial in the Senate but there's a lot of political games being played here and we're GonNa have to see how this unfolds before they had out of town for the end of the week and and there's a reason why Democrats are sort of raising concerns about whether it might be a fair trial. And that's because the the Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell as essentially. He said that's not what he thinks. His role is not an impartial. Your this is a political process is not anything. Judicial about impeachment is a political the decision. Yeah I mean it's not fair trial this is this is politics. This is the the arguments that Republicans were making in the house. You're going to hear Democrats start making in the Senate. The minority parties. Not GonNa like the way. The majority party wants to do things. These are not criminal court proceedings. This is a political process and the lawmakers who run the chambers roles. Great the rules. What's the bottom line on what the Democrats consider fair to? They have to have those White House. Witnesses that Chuck Schumer asked for. What is it that they want? I mean that's the question here in Baluchi did not exactly define what Democrats he is a fair trial. Also this is a little too congressional but one chamber of Congress doesn't get to tell the other one how they do business. That's just not how this place works. So I don't think Mitch McConnell is going to be much interested in Nancy Pelosi's input on how he should run the Senate I think Democrats are going to make a a case that the Senate should call the witnesses that the house didn't get to hear from the two names you hear. Most often are acting White House chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney and former national security adviser John Bolton the Senate as it acts in a trial has the ability to subpoena witnesses and ignoring a subpoena for a Senate. Trial is a quite a bit of a different manner than ignoring a subpoena for Congressional hearing. It seems to me that there are a lot of unanswered questions. But the good news is that we have daily podcast and we will be back in your feet as we learn more about this and of course once there is a Senate trial we will follow it every single day but for now we're going to leave it there and we will be back late late tomorrow night to break down everything that happens in the next democratic debate.

"Twenty twenty and so that's that's part of the dilemma as well but we needed him to be there because we needed to show. Oh that the trump administration is going to is not going to cooperate even when it's outside of the bounds of their authority which was somebody who never worked for him and you know and we know what Lindau Ski Din and maybe I should just stay at hearsay here. The President Wanted Lindau Sqi not not a member of the administration to go talk to sessions and to tell sessions essentially to shut down the Muller investigation that would learn what the what the Muller Investigation nations should really look at was future presidents not the current president so in basically if he didn't do that then maybe sessions should be fired so that right there was part of the Muller reports one of the examples of as Muller called potential obstruction of justice. It was very frustrating that Mahler did not just call it what it is obstruction of justice making it potential obstruction of justice was very eight frustrating us. Well you used the word frustrating I mean people are frustrated and scared and and fatigued y'all this too which is the really important point and our focus is getting people into action because whatever happens with Congress and impeachment or not impeachment or anything we need to show up and we need to vote me people gnashing what do you what do you say to people who want impeachment are wondering why. Congress isn't acting here. How how how can they beat an active participant in sure and you know what it is so important because it's one of those issues again that could demoralize and how as an activist it's really important that we constantly engage people because unfortunately if you watch the TV all you hear about is trump trump. I mean it's exhausting. You would know that we did anything else. You wouldn't pass gun legislation prescription drug with all of the stuff we're doing you have no idea about out and so it's really important as we carry on with with sea change and other other activists out there that they really do talk about what the Democrats Kratz have gotten done because why should I bother voting. Why did I care about getting the Democrats in charge. They haven't done anything. It's very easy to think that when we've actually done tons and and so the impeachment issue is a tough one because we all know that we could impeach him and he's not going to be evicted victim and so we wanNA impeach him because he we want him to leave what we would be very frustrating to impeach him and have him be in the Oval Office the next day and and then use that as his campaign you know I got exonerated. I mean they even went so far as to impeach me. I got exonerated. McConnell exonerated me. You know what I mean. the other thing though that people have to realize and I explain this town hall meetings. We are frustrated because we've wanted him gone since January the of twenty seventeen and we've saw him investigate it for two years and nothing happened but he wasn't investigated by Congress. We have been in power our for nine months now and the first month we were in a shutdown the second month the Republicans really wouldn't make Simon's so we didn't really get going until L. March so from March to September. That's a very short period of time so it's easy to look at it kind of just from your perspective effective and very very frustrating. That's why I think it's really important to talk about the things that the Democrats have been trying to get done and also we gotta get the Senate and we got to get the the White House and so to me. All effort needs to be on twenty twenty making sure that we're out there talking to voters so that they don't get demoralized and say okay well. These people doesn't matter what he does now. He's going to be interesting. It's such so egregious that this whistle blower happen. Let's see if it changes public public opinion because he is his his criminal acts are so massive that will change public opinion or I mean. What did he say he could go on. Times Square and shoot somebody you know what I mean so that's really important about impeachment as well. The public sentiment around impeachment needs to to be there and I know we've talked to a lot of your colleagues from purple areas who are doing town halls and said. It never even comes up exactly exactly what I know that you have to to get to a town hall so the last question is What gives you hope for our future. Oh Gosh I mean you know ironically this. This guy I believe has been a catalyst for activism. I haven't seen in a really long time. How Ironic is that. I mean the worst thing that could have possibly happened after the last election but again when something like that happens. You have to see what you can pull from. It and I think that he has inspired activists. It's all down the line now. It's our job to make sure that that gets sustained so that's what gives me hope. Twenty eighteen gives me hope twenty seventeen with all of the you know involvement yesterday's environmental marks the young people that are activating on on guns but it's our responsibility ons ability to make sure that that goes somewhere and and our I'm saying that as an elected official but it's all of our responsibilities you know we can't view changes. Will I'm GonNa do this for a few years. Then I'm going to go back and you know no it should be. It's a lot of countries around the world where they're much more political than we are. They know what's going on in our country. The Anna on their country and politics is just a part of their life. You don't have to do it full time but you do have a responsibility to know your congressperson is what your congressperson person does and let them know. You know what you like and don't like in in propose ideas so that's my hope. That's my hope well. Thank you so much for a great conversation conversation and all the good advice.
