Marvel Worthy Words (Luke 20:25)

"Luke Chapter Twenty Verse Twenty Five. Jesus said to them. Then render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's and to God the things that are God's. This verse comes at the end of what's probably the most prominent teaching from Jesus about government and the Gospels. So these religious leaders come to him they're trying to trap him and they say, we know teacher that you are true. You don't care about anybody's opinion for you're not swayed by appearances. You truly teach the way of God like it's total flattery this insincere praise on Jesus for selfish reasons but just waits for their question and they ask, is it lawful to pay taxes to Caesar or not? Should. Repay them or should we not and the religious leaders know that if he says not to pay taxes to Caesar that would be inactive rebellion against the government but if Jesus says, we should pay taxes to Caesar then he might appear to be compromising his devotion to God and the eyes of others. So Jesus sees right through their hypocrisy and he says them, why are you putting me to the test? Then he says, bring. migden areas. Let me look at it. And they bring him this coin. That's worth about a day's wage. Jesus holding his hand looks them in the eye and he says whose likeness and inscription is this and they say Caesar's so Jesus responds with this I surrender a Caesar the things that are Caesar's and to God the things that are God's and the very next verse says everybody marveled at his answer. So why are those words rendered a Caesar's of things that are Caesar's and God the things that are God's why are they marvel worthy Well. So much we could say here and I'm actually writing a short book along these lines that Lord Willing we'll come out in September. To help us think through biblical foundations of government as we approach a presidential election. So just how does God's word help us lead US guide. US transform the way we think about government about government leaders in ways that. Affect how we steward our voice and our vote in a representative democracy like we live in. So ton we could talk about here. That will that will be in that short book Lord Willing but what I want us to see now and how on us to lead into prayer is Jesus saying here that when it comes to how we relate to government if Caesar's images on a coin than in the sense that coin belongs to. Caesar's so Jesus. Affirming here what we see all throughout scripture that God ordains government as an institution under his authority for the good of people, which means we honor that institution we render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's we pay taxes. We stood our vote. We do all kinds of things in subjection to government to use language from Romans Thirteen for speeder chapter too but wasn't mean to render to God the things that are God's So. Caesar's images on a coin. Then where is God's image? And the answer to that question is breathtaking. Because God's image according to Genesis one is on every human heart. In other words though Caesar may be worthy of a coin from our pockets. God is worthy of our very hearts. And that totally transforms the way we think about government. So let's Pray Oh God. We. Confess today that you alone. Are Worthy of our hearts no governmental Authority, no political candidate no political party is worthy of our hearts aren't trust our allegiance our hope. Our hope is in you, our hearts belong to you. Our Trust is in you we do not trust in any political candidate or Party or Governmental Authority. You are our trust and we worship you as supreme. So we that you would help us particularly in the United States as we enter into election season but for anyone listening to this everyone listening to this from any part of the world. We prayed, you'd help us to honor government. Around us to honor government leaders. Just as we see, you encourage command us to do in places like Romans Thirteen I peter to and right here to render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's even just think about Caesar's setting himself up as Lord and you Lord Jesus telling us to honor him honor government in ways that ordained by the father at the same time in no way to give ultimate allegiance to government or put alternate trust or hope in government. So help us to keep government in a right perspective to glorify you with the way we render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's but ultimately to glorify you by rendering to you that which is yours and our lives are yours. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.

Ethnic Studies: Born in the Bay Area From History's Biggest Student Strike

"Legislation earlier this summer that would require all incoming freshman at Cal State universities to taken ethnic studies class listener. Michael Variety asked our Bay curious team this question I've heard that there was actually a revolution in the Bay Area for an ethnic studies field. Is this true? And how did it happen? The short answer. Yes, it's true. Reporter assault A sonnet. Poor tells us how it went down during the longest student strike in US history. It was November of 1968. The US was 13 years into the Vietnam War. American soldiers hiking their way through the sweaty jungles of South Vietnam, searching for enemy Martin Luther King had been assassinated earlier that year, and the Black Panther Party demanded systemic change for black communities plagued by poverty and police brutality. That's what black students at San Francisco State wanted to bury. Proves to be a member ofthe last. This is Nesbitt Crutchfield. He started studying at San Francisco State in 1967 and soon joined the black student union. It was the very 1st 1 in the country. It was very clear to me that Black soon Union representative. Very progressive. Among black spoons at state among black students in the very but just a small percentage of black students went to SF State admission rates for minority students had dwindled down to just 4%. Even those 70% of students in the SF Unified School District for from minority backgrounds is a black person you expected for all intensive purposes. To be one of the very few black people in whatever classroom laboratory auditorium. The U. N was overwhelmingly white. Amidst that whiteness black students were hungry to study their own history. The black student union had been pushing the university to create a black studies department for nearly three years. But administrators resisted the idea. was an era of young people asking questions and want to transform their communities. Jason Ferreira is a professor in the Department of Race and Resistance at San Francisco State College of ethnic studies. And that impulse that That hunger to transform one's communities is actually what forms the basis of ethnic studies. It's around this time that Penny no. Okatsu was grappling with her own questions about race and identity. We want Asian Americans, then we were Orientals. An Oriental is a term that was imposed on us by the largest society, so starting to use the term Asian American was a way of taking back er. Our own destiny. Henny became a member of a student organization called the Asian American Political Alliance. It was just one of many ethnic student organizations popping up on campus and an early fall of 1968. These organizations banded together in formed a coalition, the Third World Liberation Front. And at that particular time, third world referred to the Non Aligned Countries are cultures in Asia, Africa and Latin America. It was synonymous with how we might use people of color today. English professor and Black Panther. George Murray was one of San Francisco state's most influential anti Vietnam organizers. Students loved Murray, but his outspoken politics didn't sit well with us of state administrators. The war in Vietnam is racist. That is the law that crackers like Johnson are using black soldiers and poor white soldiers of Mexican soldiers as dupes and fools to fight against people of color. In Vietnam. The board of trustees fired Murray over Comment like this one on November 1st 1968 5 days later, the black student union and the Third World Liberation Front joined together and went on strength in aspic, Crutchfield says Despite coming from different backgrounds, the strikers had a clear goal. I wanted to find out and be educated about ourselves, and we could not get that the nobody getting educated Initially, strikers did things like cherry bombs in toilets and check out tons of books at once in order to overwhelm the school's library system, But almost immediately, administrators invited police on campus. Jason Ferreira says they swarmed the school armed with five foot batons. Students responded by throwing rocks and cursing out the police. Police came down heavy hard, and they just began cracking skulls Strikers carried on anyway. Penny No. Okatsu was protesting on January 23rd 1969. In what many call the mass bust. Two lines of police came up and basically surrounded the over 500 people who were there for the rally and tracked all of the individuals who are part with that net police charged at students, Penny says it was one of the bloodiest and most frightening days of the entire strike. That was a military movement, literally a practice orchestrated military movement. Hundreds were arrested. Virtually all of the individuals arrested head Tio spend some jail time. There are real consequences to having participated in that event. It's up two more months. But eventually in March, administrators and strikers negotiated a deal after five months of protesting the school agreed to many striker demands. They promised to accept virtually all non white applicants for fall of 1969 and they agreed to establish a college of ethnic studies, the first in the country. Class is about communities of color. Ethnic studies is a way of embracing all of the cultures that make up not just this country, but with the world. And if we don't understand each other, how we're going to get along.

"Governor Mike Dewine tested negative for corona virus just hours after another test registered a positive result raising concerns over the accuracy of Cova tess governor wine first tested positive yesterday morning. Using a rapid antigen tests with allows for results in minutes, but has been shown to be less accurate that test was part of the protocol for those greeting president trump on the tarmac airport in Cleveland Governor Dewine. Then returned to Columbus and took a second test. From Ohio, State University's Medical Center this time using a more standard procedure known as P., C. R. and results came back negative in the evening that second test which looks at these specific genetic material for the virus is known to be more sensitive and accurate, but more time intensive, and it requires sales to be processed in a lab. Wine sample was run twice and came back negative both times, Jonathan. Lemaire, you're on that trip your with the president right now, traveling this test was administered because governor dewine was going to greet president trump on the tarmac there in Ohio. What were the ripple effects of that News Air Force One? Good Morning I'm today in new. Jersey, don't be too jealous not far from the president's Bedminster Golf Club where he is spending a three day weekend, but you're right yesterday we landed here last late last night. From Ohio and perhaps not in the first line of my career obituary will note that I was in the room when the president said. But yeah. But more than that, it's the governor and that initially initial test. Shadowed the entire trip, the president spent the day at Ohio, which in itself, of course, was noteworthy state that he won handily in two thousand sixteen. But this time around did the polling shows about Joe. Biden shows you president trump diminished standing in this race that he has to spend time resource energy in states like Ohio. Yesterday, he was in. Texas, last week having to play defense and it was as we. We were about to take off from Washington on Air. Force One. When we got news, the governor had tested positive and he no longer will be able to be there on the tarmac when we landed. Of course, he wasn't there president was greeted in Cleveland by other other officials, other representatives I addressed briefly saying that he thought the governor would hopefully would be okay, but it goes to show you the entire. Centered around a speech. The president touted his economic policies He turned toward a whirlpool factory in Ohio, Tout American manufacturing in its rebirth under his watch although, of course. American. Manufacturing sector has really stalled by in the last year or two. But. He chose he can never outrun the virus everything was trying to yesterday and then included a fundraiser as well was shadowed by this, and then of course, last night after we landed here in New Jersey, we got second test proved negative, but it raises questions about the accuracy of these tests and includes those White House. If you remember Texas last week Congressman Gohmert was going to be on the Air Force One. He wasn't because he tested positive. Seems like subsequent tests indicate that as well. But this causes the question. Everyone comes into contact with the president that includes his. Medic officials on the road that includes reporters at the white. House before the one, I took that same test yesterday, the governor wanted in Ohio. We're all screen, and now this has been number of high profile. Cases, governor. But also staffers and reporters where there's been a false negative at first were a false positive. It calls into question just how accurate and safe. All these tests are for anyone including those traveling with commander in chief.

EPA aviation climate control proposal

"First story comes from manufacturing dot net US says, it will adopt gradual climate standards for aviation. That's a line that kind of sparks some interest. Given the history with maybe the the European views of airplane emissions compared to. Well, the United States and some other countries as well. So what we have here, his the EPA, the environmental. Protection Agency has proposed new aircraft emissions regulations he and some people are criticizing them in other applauding them. Well, this proposal adopts the twenty seventeen emission standards from. The International Civil Aviation Organization. So Boeing and the Airlines for America Trade Group welcomed the proposal. Meanwhile environmental groups and even the EPA itself said that the proposed regulations would really have no meaningful effect. This is. Kind of frustrating I. Love Our current climate where we? Excuse the Pun where where the regulatory agency issuing the regulations is saying it's probably not the best thing that we've done, but here it is anyway I just. Kind of exasperating. Well, it is. It is the representative from the center for Biological Diversity. Had An interesting comment. that. Rip said they are literally just ANTIBAC- sliding provision. They don't require anyone to improve. They just say when doing stuff don't make it worse. Yes, but then you get credit for having done something even if you didn't well, I also that that I think that's the motto of Tonight's episode is we're doing stuff. Don't make it worse. Well, we should mention how much they are planning to reduce it They said that they plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions for new aircraft by four percent over twelve years. So that's one percent what every three years. I don't know from just kind of engineering standpoint. That's very, very really little improvement in efficiency and I would think that just by occasionally burning a little biofuel, they can nail that one, another perspective I, it comes from the hill which reports that an analysis from the International Council on clean. Transportation. Found that most airlines in the United States covering more than three quarters of Asian demand already meet the K. KO standards. So, we don't WanNA get into politics. But here, here's some proposed regulations that. You know one group of individuals say don't have any teeth whatsoever. Their lines for America a a is commenting that this is nice. Balanced approach that kind of Addresses all the concerns but So. There we have it. It is just a proposal. I, don't know what the process is to Go forward with this, but it is a proposal, notice a of no, our PM's NPR 'em no. Yeah I I. Don't know. I don't know how the EPA does. I don't know if they do the same way. The FAA does that being? Developed briefly make that would possibly make sense. But that doesn't probably isn't how to happen.

"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.

"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.

"Left and the right so. I'm going to work with the tea party the Heritage Foundation trump administration whoever whoever that are interested in criminal justice reform entirely different reason worried about the money I don't care I mean if we can be on the same page and get some legislation passed like we did with first step. Forty thousand people get released from federal prison then fine. We'll do that so part of it is because Republicans Republicans have realized that this is a whole lot of money that we're spending and remember. They don't like government so you're spending all this money locking people up part of it is because the activism around around criminal justice reform from people who were formerly incarcerated but also other people who just see this as a basic human rights issue in an embarrassment of our country so it's a confluence of all of that and so you have to be sensitive to win moments like that happen and then take advantage of them another big thing that you have on your plate is chairing the CBC yes and I think that's the Congressional Black Caucus Congressional Black Caucus which is in a really unique position and right now with with trump as president how is the CBC working to keep this administration and check well first of all folks should know there are fifty five African America. Actually there's fifty seven African Americans in Congress fifty five or in the Black Caucus. Two of them are Republicans. They choose not to be which is okay okay. and three members of the Black Caucus are in the top leadership in the House of Representatives five cheerful committees which is a huge deal and and twenty two of US share subcommittees so out of two hundred and thirty five Democrats fifty-five being African American and there isn't one of us that I believe that has a district that's all African American so we all represent very diverse diverse districts but that you know because he is such an open races because he has been an absolute instigator of of white supremacist groups in a whole new day than the Black Caucus obviously has to stay on the forefront in every way because he's come in you know we pay attention to some of his corruption Russian but he has dismantled stuff in every federal agency all of the civil rights protections that were put in place over decades. He is tried to systematically system medically a undo and so it's put us on the defensive we did at one point have to go meet with him if you remember that famous press conference when he sent to April Oh Ryan who was the CBC and did she know them. Because of course all black people know each other and so I was in the leadership of the Black Caucus at the time I wasn't sharing airing and none of us wanted to go meet with him at that point it was forty nine of us but you know the leadership went and in that was quite an experience the chair here at the time put this one hundred twenty page document together. That was called. This is what we have to lose because you remember. He said black people have nothing to lose. Why don't we support him so we put this document together and handed it to him and it was pretty pretty amazing meeting because I'm not sure he reads. I don't think so either a million. I bet we thought we would tell him a little bit about black people because he really didn't know nine of our new. Five of our new members actually don't don't represent will there. The black population in their districts is between one and five percent so black people are elected in areas where you know you wouldn't think they would be which I think is a very good step forward. Speaking of people being elected. The house just elected so many younger representatives. The average age just went down by ten years in this last midterm election. What's your working relationship with them. Have you had advice for the younger members of Congress. sure my working relationship is fine and yes. I have tried to be there for them but that's a delicate thing too because you know you don't want to to make someone feel like you know you're young. Sit down. Let me fill your head up with all that. I know you don't WanNa do that. You know they got elected in their own right and and I actually didn't with exception of Ilhan Omar Ilan Omar is the one that I really have focused on which I'll explain in a minute but I didn't for several several months because I knew they were being pounced on but but I've absolutely embrace them and feel like I said I mean I one of my life's missions is focusing on the next generation of leaders. That's what happened with me and and I feel really privileged now that I'm in the position as the elder and then I get to focus you know on on young folks coming up so it's very important to me that they'd be successful. I do think though people have to decide if they really WANNA be in Congress and well because you can run especially an insurgent and not necessarily know what you're getting into and then you get into Congress and it is a culture and it is an environment that is very that is not individualistic so you can have a big social media presence but that does not translate all into support inside of Congress yes and if you want to get legislation done you have to move into more of the team kind of thing with votes caucus and all that right and so ill hon on my my focus on Johan and also Joan Goose who's not talked about very often. The first two Africans elected to Congress so it's very exciting you know Joe Goose's assist parents were refugees from Eritrea on Ilhan of course was a refugee from Somalia so I told both of them when they got elected that I would take them Africa soon as they came in and so I did do that and then of course I was heavily recruiting. Ilhan to be on my subcommittee that I now after eight years have an opportunity to chair the subcommittee mini on Africa because again. I'm thinking in the future I mean I'm not going to always be there. Wouldn't it be how cool would it be for the Africa subcommittee chaired by an African just mace too much sense though that's reporting has recently come out that trump as the Ukrainian leader to help dig up dirt dirt on Joe Biden's son and with how two hundred fifty million dollars in military aid that that can't be legal. Oh no no it's not illegal at all but then I mean we know his criminal behaviour i. He views this thing well if I do it in public. It's not the crime so I'm GonNa go rob a bank lungs. I tell everybody I guess it's okay but you know this happened right as we were journeying so when we go back next week it'll probably be a much bigger issue but you know. I mean I think it's just another example of his of his criminal behavior. In the question is now you know what do do we do he has shown lawlessness and a disregard for the rule of law in every single way. I mean I serve on judiciary this week. We had Lindau Hausky who didn't even work for the administration. How can you claim executive privilege. You don't even work for the administration. I mean and this one. This questions really early in regards to Lewandowski specifically coming from my wife. Can we actually I know there's a little cell in in Congress. Can we hold someone in contempt and get the sergeant arms to put them there or is it would just get overcrowded too fast. I heard about that Joan after the people that could you know we went and I'm by the way one of my challenges is. I'm on judiciary but I'm one of the few non-lawyers so when and we met on Friday the lawyers were giving a presentation to us about contempt and no we did not have the authority to just charge charge contempt right on the spot interesting. I don't know that I can explain it any more than that. Cut and dry did not have the authority to do that. I will I'll tell you that we are still contemplating on what we do vite right the follow up and whether or not contempt enters a little but later but we didn't have the authority to just go right down there and and do that and you know what it's a touchy thing because you know. Do you bring Hausky when you know he's just GONNA act out. I mean I hear. He raised over a million dollars he was you know his tweet in the morning was about hey thanks. I get to go down and Hashtag Hashtag Senate.

"You are failing us but the young people are starting to understand your betrayal. The ice of all future generations are upon you and if you choose to fail US I say we we will never forgive you that was Greta Thunberg incredibly impassioned and beautiful speech to win General Assembly on Climate Change. She's amazing and just outclassing everybody. I woke up this morning to tweet from Donald Trump making fun of her her. I saw that too. Which is you know? Come on. It's I mean look. There's no shortage outrage for Donald Trump's tweets tweets and we managed to not talk about trump a lot on this and this episode is GonNa be a little different trump heavy. It's going to be a very trumpy episode. because we have two main things to talk about and one is of course impeachment the official impeachment inquiry and trump's criminal acts and and we're. GonNa talk about that but we're not gonNa let it overshadow the incredible work that Greta Thunberg and these young activists have done around the climate yet. It's a pretty spectacular what they're doing and one of the things that I love about it particularly the so Greta and fourteen other young people filed a lawsuit against five countries this week over climate change and it's a broad and diverse group of young people and I think that as exciting as as it is to see Greta standing up to trump in the UN and calling us out on our failures as a society to to the world's children she standing on the shoulder of other young giants who don't get the same accolades. Don't get the same attention she's standing on the shoulders of the the indigenous youth who were activated by the Dakota Pipeline Project and and the Black Youth in Flint to were immobilizing into to save their own water supply and what we see here in. La Latino youth activated for years to to get clean air in their communities unity's and so this is an opportunity to say wow look at this young woman but also look at all of the the young people who she was able to mobilise because of the work that they've been doing. That's great point yeah not for nothing. There's a great meam of her. Giving laser. Evil is donald trump as he walks in a room which I just want to watch on a loop over and over again. 'cause it brings me joy a very stressful week. Every face in that room is a mood and hers is the most relevant bats you're right but yes speaking stressful weeks happy impeachment week what we're calling this. I'm I am right now. So here's the thing and it's obviously very serious and we talk about it a little bit with Congress woman Karen Bass later on also. We had this conversation with her a few days ago. A lot is happening moving very fast week. Yeah Speaker Pelosi announced that the houses houses officially launched an impeachment inquiry. This is all happening but we have a very specific job to do around this because impeachment. Mitt proceedings going forward. That's not going to save us and it's still incredibly unlikely that the Republicans are going to do anything we're not. GonNa have sears in the Senate right so what we can do what we must do right. Now is create that public narrative around impeachment and give the people who are coming hang out in favor of it. Give them support re tweet them to make sure you're following them. Call those offices all those offices exactly call all of your representatives tentatives and then have your friends and neighbors and everyone do the same thing because this tide is rolling but they need our support. We have a very key role. Play in this and there are still some folks you might be on a tipping point that need to hear from the public. I think the public narrative so far has been the general public. The voters are ready for impeachment. They haven't seen anything that they feel is worthy of going through the whole process assists impeachment and Democrats are just going to make themselves more vulnerable with but public sentiment is changing with this Ukrainian News and in public sentiment has to change for this to move forward in an effective meaningful way so be loud about your feelings around impeachment. It will absolutely absolutely make a difference the other thing that we need to do around this is we need to keep registering voters especially in these key states. We know trump will do anything to win right. There is nothing he will not do to stay in power and this isn't hyperbole. This is actually really scary you guys he is using in US money to bribe other nations to help it win in plain sight in plain sight. It's like I wanna I wanNA laugh about it. It's it's really scary so we have to win. Overwhelmingly the house is going to do their job now. We have to do our job by reaching out and registering the voters we need in twenty twenty so that means the super states that means these swing states it means the Senate the Senate the Senate right absolutely need to be focusing on that and not let all of this impeachment and presidential stuff. Take away all all the around the room yeah and I think that if the impeachment train continues down this track even. Let's say you know worst case scenario. Oh they don't impeach because they don't have the votes to do it. There are S- vulnerable Republican senators who will have to answer for that in remember if they are not willing to step up and say oh we have all of the evidence we had all the evidence we needed but we wouldn't get onboard well then. You have some questions dancer answer from from some angry voters. That's exactly right so there's lots of reasons to be hopeful right now for reasons for hope one is I really we hope he does get impeached in this move forward even if the Senate doesn't do anything this. I believe personally that this is our moral responsibility to hold him accountable so we'll support our reps. your calls to action for this week or call your raps retweets their post help build public support our other reason for hope. Hope is this great climate March and the work that these kids are doing and coming up after our interview we have our first field segment where I got to go with my daughter and talk to some kids. I hope you you know listen to it because it's so inspiring and really really really cool yeah. We had a great time so calls to action. Don't forget about Virginia seven weeks. I think until Election Day in Virginia still time time we can take the majority and that's going to set up victories that will will not only i Virginia is the second hardest estate the vote in right by the way because of voter suppression and Gerrymandering and all that so those goodell's southern Voter Suppression Dak eight days you yeah they do It's also going to be a big test for twenty twenty the so much to get distracted with right now and for good reason Zain but we can do both right can look at this impeachment with bated breath and in great interest but we can stay focused on the work. We need to do on the ground and that's what we're GONNA. Do you can tweet about the impeachment and you can also go to swing left dot org slash Virginia and find some things that you you can do to to office. They're that's right all right. Let's get going with the interview.

"Hey we love being in the land of enchantment so much a couple weeks ago that we came back to another episode this time sitting down with two members of congress in house a wildlife corridors summit it is a fabulous abuse conversation with assistant speaker of the house ben ray luhan and first term congresswoman deb haaland earlier this year. She became the first native american woman to preside over the house of representatives. We talked about wildlife tribal issues national monuments and a whole lot more. I'm very excited about this. Episode also also very excited that later this week we are going to be live in tucson arizona coming up this thursday august twenty ninth. We will be talking the congressman role gonzalvo the chairman of the house natural resources committee. We've got len ness a for the head of natives outdoors and stephanie sklar the executive director of the sonoran institute. If you are in town please come take a listen. We're going to be at american eat company on south fourth avenue. That's an all local food hall all in market. We're going to be taking over the north room starting at three thirty on thursday the twenty ninth. We'll start recording the podcast around four. Please stick around afterwards words to chat with us. Maybe have a beer again this coming thursday. The twenty ninth american eat company in tucson. The podcast starts at four in the afternoon soon. We will see they're all right. Let's do the news starting with some discouraging signs for the sage grouse. That's the bird whose habitat is being threatened and by oil and gas development across the west in idaho. The grouses population has dropped by fifty two percent since two thousand sixteen. That's a trend that biologists allergists have seen in neighboring states as well in wyoming thirty three oil and gas wells have been drilled in core sage grouse habitat under the trump administration compare that to just eight wells at the end of the obama years a report that came out last month from the national wildlife federation the audubon society and the wilderness society the found at the rate of oil and gas leasing in sage grouse habitat is nearly three times higher on the trump administration than it was after the obama administration ministration cut a deal that attempted to stave off a listing under the endangered species act and in a related story. The interior department has launched an all all out assault on the endangered species act announcing three new rules that weaken enforcement of wildlife protections first interior will weaken protections for species species that are listed as threatened but not yet endangered the obvious result the areas that more species will then continue to decline and end up being endangered secondly the rules change the definition of critical habitat they now lit interior leave out places that are suitable for an endangered species but are no longer her current habitat again. It's not rocket science to realize that if you protect less land you are reducing the chances that species could recover in the future and finally interior can now choose to ignore the impacts of climate change on endangered species. The obvious example here is the polar bear their their habitat is literally melting away so they are going to have to move in order to survive but under these new rules interior wouldn't have to protect areas the the polar bears will inevitably have to move to so all of these changes as a whole make it clear the intent here is to give interior secretary david bernhardt all the leeway he needs to pick and choose which species to save and which to let go extinct if that's more convenient his former clients alliance and of course changes like this will not go unchallenged expect to see lots of lawsuits from state attorneys general and conservation groups we are honored to be joined today by two new mexico congressional representatives assistant speaker of the house ben ray luhan and representative deborah holland. Thanks to both of you for being here on the podcast. Today this is all right. Thanks for coming out to towns new mexico and you're always welcome make sure you get a chance to <hes> get outdoors here and enjoy some of the splendors of the cuisine and once you get hooked on chill. You're not gonna turn back. I never turn down a chance against and yes thank you congress. Thank you assistant speaker for having me in your district. We'll chairwoman holidays. It's it's always use. Well is one of my favorite places in the entire world and not just being here and test drive up here is beautiful and amazing. One one of the most spectacular drives yeah so we're recording this right now. From the sagebrush in there is a wildlife summit going on right now to discuss conserving wildlife migration corridors put on by the national wildlife federation and a host of other land wildlife advocates and we'll. We'll talk more about that in in a minute but i want to start by acknowledging that this is a very special part of the south west here in northern new mexico. You can't help but be aware of the strong connections between the people and the land and water and wildlife here. It is obviously a spiritual connection. That's a part of the the core identity of the tribal cultures and the hispanic cultures that have been here for thousands and hundreds of years respectively actively. I wonder if i wanna start with both of you to talk about how the trump administration's policies as they affect new mexico's land and walter and wildlife do they feel personal to you because of that connection absolutely they absolutely feel personal to me and i take that personal personal emotion to congress with me when i am defending our mine and ben raise bill to protect chaka canyon for example right <hes> against gas and oil drilling for a ten mile radius so that area needs permanent protections my <hes> the my ancestoral homeland part of my argument in committee when we were passing the bill through markup was my ancestors are buried there thinking thinking that that might help people to understand the significance of it <hes> we didn't get one republican to vote that bill through committee so so yes yes it is personal to me when i think about the <hes> gosh the centuries of drought and famine that my ancestors persevered through because they had the idea that they needed to sustain themselves so that generations down the line would move into the future and and be their legacy congressman look the significance of the summit <hes> that has come together here highlighting how we have to be working together not just to protect these wildlife corridors but protecting our public lands and access. I'm here in the community where we are today the the significance associated with the pueblo leaders with house pueblo. If you've hadn't if you had a chance to go visit taus pablo really to pay your respects there. There's there's something spiritual usual magical serene about just taking a few footsteps and stopping and just taking it in the magic of the return of blue lake another important protected areas sacred site and as congressman holland pointed out the significance of legislation solution to protect chuckle canyon in the greater area surrounding it <hes> as deb said her ancestors go back thirty four thirty five generations nations time immemorial <hes> active in eight hundred a._d. Think about the significance of that but growing up and and being able to get into the outdoors whether it was camping or fishing or hiking <hes> getting on my bike <hes> exploring new things learning what to eat and what not to eat <hes> careful when you're out there <hes> but it's about that education and what i appreciate from <hes> the pueblo leaders in friends that i've <hes> <hes> called friends of mine entire life they help me understand the magic of that medicine chest and so while many of us may go into the bathroom war in two of a utility room and open up a door and there's all your medicine and cabinet think about that medicine chest is with the gathering of herbs of healing of the spiritual place that can't even describe the magic of spirituality <hes> the special place that we call home in new mexico but especially here in towse and all of our public lands that were so honored to work together to protect you are both in an unique positions to lead on wildlife and environmental issues as an assistant speaker as a subcommittee chair on <music> on natural resources share real quickly your priorities on the legislative level for new mexico's land and water. Are you mentioned chaco canyon. What else is on on your shortlist right. Well making it impossible for any president to take a pen and chop off a big swath of our public lands another thing right. We want those public lands intact for every single person to enjoy. I like to see a fully fund full funding of the land and water conservation fund <hes> <hes> and you know i have been very very outspoken about no border wall because the border wall in and of itself alf is it hampers the ability for wildlife to sustain itself as well so all of those you know look there's is no one to speak up for the animals and the fish and the plants in the forest we have to do that and and it's pretty obvious to me that we're here because because of our environment right we destroy it that means the destruction of future generations so so those are some of my priorities and and proud and happy to stand up for them. Well i want to thank god chairwoman holland for the work and the advocacy that she brings everyday <hes> she is one of the newly elected chairs of a subcommittee as a new member of the house of representatives. <hes> that's an incredible feat and responsibility <hes> in previous congresses you we don't see new members have that leadership role as one of the leaders <hes> congresswoman holland <hes> brought <hes> several other leaders to new mexico because the honor of hosting german greenhow. Oh who's the chair of the full committee on natural resources alan lowenthal also subcommittee chair <hes> and congresswoman holland chair holland and i did a site visit out to choco where we didn't just take in the history to sacred secred nature of that important place but we also went out to where there was some methane plumes now you can smell it when you're out there but the groups that came together with us actually shared with some cameras that allowed us to see it while we smelled it we had field hearings in new mexico co that chairwoman holland helped lead. We took that back. She led the effort in the house of representatives with the hearing on the protection of chaco canyon <hes> as the assistant speaker. I make sure that i raise my voice when we're in those meetings where encouraging the chairs of the committees to prioritize these important public land <hes> legislation <hes> packages well <hes> we worked together <hes> earlier this year when we pass to john dingell lands package act which personally family authorized land water conservation fund protected over a million acres including right here in new mexico right here in the house <hes> areas right in the real grounded on nor to down with a desert peaks in the oregon mountains and so that's how we can work together you raise your voice. You lend your advocacy you collaborate your partner and you make sure that you build to that table as large as you can until you're able to get these packages across the finish line. We're going to get back to l. w. c._f. Because as as we all know were we're halfway there in terms of authorising but not guaranteeing funding but i want to start with wildlife corridors because we are here at a wildlife migration summit. There is a bill pending wildlife corridors conservation act <hes> first of all either of you just walk us through briefly what that bill does does and then more importantly. What do you think the chances are of getting some major wildlife bill through in this congressional session so the the critical nature of this package. Is it protects the it does what it says. It's a wildlife poor door conservation act so think of the movement went heard or species as they're going from one area to another <hes> as we continue to see build out an encroachment challenges with a climate change changing terrains raines ecosystems in drought those wildlife corridors are quickly disappearing <hes> they're they're being infringed upon if you will <hes> and as deb said there's no one out there <hes> if you will at least we've figured it out yet <hes> to understand the spoken word from the creatures <hes> that we the <hes> call our friends and that we're not <hes> to to protect <hes> many friends and family as well that <hes> extend that a branch out to even been call family as well with our four legged friends or those that flyer those swim <hes> and so that's what this package will do it ensures that we're gonna protect corridors we identify identify these corridors that we also work with tribal leaders with pueblo leaders and we work to maintain that wildlife corridor for the movement of those animals across these protected lands public public areas tribal land pueblo lands as well. It's an important package..
