"Wage On Thursday, the Senate's top rule keeper said the provision is not in line with the rules that govern budget bills in the Senate. The decision means supporters will likely have to find another way to achieve a top campaign promise for many Democrats, including President Biden. Well. They are also fighting to defend the relief bill that Republicans are also lining up to oppose. Now. Some have proposed taxes on companies that don't pay workers at least $15 an hour. Others think of more gradual, incremental increase is better. Since Republican lawmakers seem unified in their distaste for the measure. We figured the action is on the Democratic side, so we're going to focus there, and we've called Maria Cardona, a Democratic strategist. She previously worked as a senior adviser and spokesperson for Hillary Clinton's 2008 campaign and President Obama's 2012 campaign. Maria Cardona. Nice to have you with us. Thank you so much for having me. Also back with us is David Sirota. He is a former campaign speech writer for Vermont senator and former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, who you might recall has been pushing for an increase in the federal minimum wage for years. David Sorta welcome back to you as well. Thank you. Thanks for having me. So, David, I'm just going to start with you. I'm just gonna ask you to set the table for us, since you know, honestly, a fraction of American workers actually get the federal minimum wage, which is around $7 an hour. So why has this become such an important issue for Democrats? You know, we're in an economic crisis where wages are just not keeping up with people's expenses, and this has been a long time Democratic pledge. The minimum wage has not been raised in years. On. It's frankly the least that should be done in the wealthiest country in the world. And it is now obviously caught in this battle over Senate rules that I'm sure we'll discuss a little bit more. But it is a huge promise from the Biden administration and the Democrats. And while you've made your feelings clear about this, I mean, just this morning, you tweeted quote. The most powerful man in the world is cowering in fear of a parliamentarian. That's the official the Senate official who said that the it shouldn't be part of the budget package and then going on to your quote, you say then. Then, Democrats somehow wonder why so many Americans see them as weak, feckless cowards. So obviously you feel strongly about this. What do you think President Biden should do? Should he fire the parliamentarian? She's just ignore it. So the notion of the Democrats blaming essentially one of their own advisers, who issued a non binding opinion. Where Kamila Harris can simply as presiding officer of the Senate, ignore that opinion and advance the minimum wage. The idea that this is the fault of or work or is responsible. The parliamentarian is responsible for Democrats not being able to do anything. Is just absurd and belied by by the by the facts, And so then the question becomes. Well, Why are they trying to not do a $15 minimum wage? Why would you come up with an excuse not to do that, Maria. What do you think the Democrats should do right now? And do you agree, Maria that the $15 Federal minimum wage hike is something that should be a top priority. There's no question that it should be a top priority, and I believe that it is a top priority for the Biden administration. But look They're facing a lot of what they called top priorities. And, frankly, his biggest, Biden's biggest campaign promise was to pass a covert relief bill for the millions of Americans who are hurting who have lost their jobs who have lost their businesses. And look, I agree that the 15 minimum wage $15 An hour minimum wage should be part of that solution. But the fact of the matter is is that there are other things in the covered relief bill that need to be passed now And while David you know I agree with him on everything that, he said The what is working against us is time before we let each of you go. I want to talk more broadly about that Cove. It released Bill. I mean, you can see that the Republican campaign committees are already sort of teeing up against the people that they consider to be vulnerable. They're calling it like the House Republican Campaign Committee, calling it a Um, a corrupt socialist wish list. What? What do you make of that? It's cynical. It's It's a lot of nonsense. What they want to do is try to undermine the economy. To make the economy not grow as a zwelling. It needs to grow s so that they can go into the midterm election. The arguing essentially that the economy eyes not doing well, and that's Joe Biden's fault. So the trap here is to pay is for is if Democrats count out to that and cower to that they have to actually move this bill forward. With as much help for the American people as possible and not get caught. Which is what Obama did. Obama got caught reducing the stimulus in the face of that Republican opposition to try to appease that Republican opposition. And it ended up being one of the weakest economic recoveries in the country's modern history. And the Republicans won the midterms right after that happened, so The Democrats need to learn from that past mistake and not try to reduce the covert relief package to try to appease Republicans. That's exactly what the Republicans want them to do. Marie. I'm going to ask you about this, too, because it's because Not to sort of tag you with the sort of any particular kind of label But the fact of the matter is, there are a lot of Democrats who see themselves on the bubble. You saw this in the 2020 elections. They felt that some of the themes that were most attractive to progressive Democrats they felt were kind of toxic for them. You know, what's your take on how the Democrats should handle this. Frankly, I think what Democrats need to do is to put it into the Republican into Republican laps and say, what part of this are you against? They've made it clear with their against their against A lot of it there against the infrastructure support. This is just a communication from the NRCC, the National Republican Congressional Campaign Committee. They call it $140 million for Nancy Pelosi. Silicon Valley subway $570 million for bureaucratic bailout that allows federal government employees to stay home with their kids and still get paid Slashes $36 billion from Medicare up to $10 million for teachers, unions, $350 million for states and local governments there. Yes, there are. They are on the record about what they're against their against support for state and local governments and ah lot of the infrastructure spending because they see it. As sort of a spendthrift democratic policies. So this is great politics because Joe Biden actually won the election, eating into the Republican base of white, low income voters, and so when this passes and starts helping Low income voters and, frankly, middle class voters to who have really been devastated by this crisis. Then I think this is a great political message where this is where, like good policy is good politics because this is helping Americans across the board, and I think it will be really tough. For Republicans to be able to say that this was not something that should have passed. When they start seeing the economy really rebound, and they see their own base really being helped by this, it's going to be really hard for them for them to campaign against it in the midterm elections and, frankly, to the to the issue that we started talking about the minimum wage. When the economy starts taking off. It will be a big boost and making the argument that we can absolutely sustain a needed and a very popular notion, which is raising the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour. That was Maria Cardona. She is a Democratic strategist who has advised Hillary Clinton Barack Obama campaigns. She is now a principal at the Dewey Square Group. David Sirota was also with us. He's a former campaign speech writer for Senator Bernie Sanders. He's the founder and editor. Of a progressive newsletter called the Daily Poster, and he writes for other outlets as well, Thank you both So much for talking to us. Thank you for the Food and Drug administration has cleared the way for another covert 19 vaccine to go into circulation..

"Thing, development and digging out from the trump era. The development as some of you just heard on the BBC is the news today that the Biden administration is taking steps toward negotiating with Iran about rejoining the nuclear deal. Person is Democratic representative Tom Malinowski of New Jersey, who has been elevated in the new Congress to vice chair of the House Foreign Affairs Committee because of his unique experience in this area, as the bio on his website puts it. Malinowski was born in communist Poland during the height of the Cold War. When he was six, he and his mother fled to the United States, and he grew up in central Jersey. Malinowski served as a senior director on President Clinton's National Security Council, where he worked and conflicts around the globe. He then served as the chief advocate for Human Rights Watch, where he led the bipartisan campaign to end the use of torture by the Bush administration. Later, he served the Obama administration as assistant secretary of State for democracy, Human rights and labor, where he helped lead America's fight for human rights around the world. So now he's in Congress and vice chair of the Foreign Affairs Committee. President Biden is looking for a way to get back into the Iran nuclear deal and improve it at the same time dealing with Iran's sponsorship of terrorism and Congressman Mental Malinowski is also very focused right now on focus on fighting terrorism at home. After what he saw on January 6th. He's also been named to the Homeland Security Committee and is among those most pressuring the Social media giants the hardest to make it harder for violent extremism to spread. Congressman Malinowski. Always good to have you on with us. Welcome back to W. N. Y C. Thanks so much happy to be on. Let's begin with terrorism at home, and let's begin with a little of your own story. I see in an N J Spotlight story. I did not follow this during the fall that you were the victim of some false conspiracy theory spreading during a re election campaign. That resulted in death threats against you and Jake Spotlight refers to the National Republican Campaign Committee falsely alleging that you lobby to protect sexual predators. Which was enough to prompt a so called Q drop Q and on rants posted to various message boards that resulted in death threats against you. Can you tell a little more of that story? That's basically what happened. And they you know, they chose that line of attack for obvious reasons, because Central Cuban on conspiracy is that there is this cab, all of powerful people in government who are somehow engaged in protecting sexual trafficking where the kidnapping of Children that's Modern version of the old anti Semitic blood libel. And I think that you know, we have evidence that they poll tested that message in our district and then came out with an ad. That the drove it home. The ad ran for more than a month, which is very unusual. In political advertising toe. Put out a message for that long and eventually Um, it was noticed by the Q and on people themselves. Coincidentally, I was leading an effort in the House of Representatives to condemn. Q and I was the lead sponsor of a bipartisan resolution. Condemning this, this horrific conspiracy mongering movement. And the Cuse supporters put those things together and came after me. So I see you have a bill designed to hold the tech giant's accountable for their algorithms that wind up amplifying extremist content. How do you write a lot to regulate algorithms? Not just people. We can't tell the tech companies how to design their networks, but we also don't have to protect them from liability under Section 2 30 of the Communications Decency Act, this old law that's gotten a lot of attention recently big tech giants like Facebook and Twitter and YouTube. Are simply not responsible legally for anything that's posted. On their websites, even though they write these algorithms to promote this content to make it spread wildly across The Internet. Thies algorithms work in a very pernicious way. They know everything we do online. They follow every single click every website that we visit every video that we watch every post that we linger over. And they then feed us more intense versions. Of what? We've already indicated. We like what we already Have shown them by our behavior online that we fear that we hate the triggers our emotions. Because they know that if they feed us more and more of that stuff, we will stay on their platforms longer. Will Seymour ads will buy more stuff? So you know, if you like cute kitten videos, you'll get more cute kitten videos, but If you're susceptible to extremism to anti Semitism. Two messages of hate, You will be said more and more. More until You're deep down that rabbit hole so Our legislation basically says If you do that, if you promote that sort of content with your algorithms And it leads to real world violence. Like what happened in the capital of January 6, then you can be held liable for Ironically, and maybe, weirdly Trump and Republicans who support him also want to repeal that section 2 30 provisions. That gives the tech giant's immunity from liability for things people do on their platforms Here is Ted Cruz at a Senate hearing on this issue in December. Do you really want to submit total control of the public debate? To a handful of Silicon Valley billionaires, Modern day oligarchs. With money and power and no accountability. Ted Cruz live from his beach chair and Cancun? No, I'm kidding. That was in December, but To you, Congressman. The issue is protecting America from violent radicalization, most of which is coming from the right to Ted Cruz. The issue was stopping the tech companies from coding a liberal bias. Into their algorithms that cancels conservative speech. Can one policy do both of those things. So it Zaveri hard toe argue with Ted Cruz and Donald Trump this issue because they completely don't understand how section 2 30 works. If if Donald Trump and Ted Cruz got their way. And we completely eliminated section 2 30, which I'm not proposing at all. That the tech companies would be Even more eager to censor their posts. Because suddenly they could be sued for any lie that Ted Cruz heir Donald Trump. Tell on on the Internet. If you know if they're promoting some sort of fake cure for covert that people them take and and die than Twitter could be sued Facebook could be sued and so The likelihood of someone like Cruz being Banned from Twitter would go up exponentially. If he got his way and section 2 30 was repealed. So That it's hard to debate with, because they're just so confused. Where is what we're trying to do? It deals with the reality of how the law works, and I'm not proposing repealing it just a very targeted reform. That says if.

"How about over at the Senate Campaign Republican Campaign Committee and the Republican House Committee I mean they've got to be because they're stuck. They can't. They can't take a walk on trump. No, no, it's indelible and you know some of the guys. The Corey Gardens of the world in he's as bad off as it could be by now a year ago eighteen months. Months ago, they couldn't maneuvered to create their own identity. Collins has had some success with that and we can talk about her, but they didn't. And when you now try to cut and run late, it's even worse. You get nothing for it. I mean the Senate guys friends over there, and the said hey nice new carpet. It's all yellow an carpet. Those are dead canaries, lot of feathers around here because there's not there's not a Republican senator with internal data outside of like you know the Mitt Romney's of the world and really safe states, but anybody who's up. This has as crappy data, and what are the point where good news on us and you know accesses. Good news good news, when incumbent, sitting at forty, three forty two nowhere near ready that that tire then challenger is, and it's good news for challengers, so a of campaign left, but but it it's It's grim. I was at a town hall with Ernst at the end of last year where she was confronted in a now infamous video that went viral by a constituent who had driven a couple of hours to get there and say ask her you know when where is the line? When it was right when the I I think whistleblower complaint came out about Ukraine and it was just kind of this in credulity and fury and anger that this woman was channeling and Joni Ernst had no. No aptitude, no capability to manage the rage like the sense of I mean now. Obviously, this woman is progressive I. Don't think she was gonNA. Vote for Joni Ernst Anyway in this election, but you know. I the the the level of discomfort, and that was in the fall, among p with candidates like Joni Ernst. Who who knew even then that this was going to be a complicated election cycle the ability to sort of bridge this the sort of placating the base and managing the ire of independence. It's like an impossible position, an impossible line to toe and she wasn't good at them and I have a hard time imagining that she's gotten better at it since and now she has an opponent. Teresa Greenfield won the primary there. WHO'S A rural? Woman and You know again. Someone who will not read threatening to Iowa voters to the she'll read familiar to Iowa voters and Janis sitting there with a approval rating in the thirties. So that's a race. They you know that is not generally on the list of frontline races, but it may well find its its way there now. you know they've got. They've got real problems. One note on the Colorado race you know I like John Hickenlooper a lot but he's a quirky fellow and He's he's. He's had a series of missteps in this in this early going, even though he's had a huge lead. Lead one poll how eighteen points, but he's now. You know there's just there's a slight sort of Scintilla of concern about. The primaries got a primary challenge on June thirtieth, and he's getting challenged from the left. And meanwhile he's getting pummeled by as of this morning by Gardner on all the Times that he said he wasn't interested in being senator didn't want to be. A senator wouldn't be a good senator and so you know I, think this was considered the most secure of all the seats I. Think he'll probably still win and maybe comfortably, but it. You know it is an all blue skies in seashells in balloons for For Democrats. They've got they've got. A harbinger of better days I didn't know you were freelancing for hallmark either I'm seeing this pretty thing of puppies. That's an old Al Al. McGuire Maguire the old basketball coach and announcer Alka data. Balloons I agree with you I. Gardner is a good candidate, but it's going to be hard and Colorado even with the Hickam lag. Listen I. Think Look. I think Montana is looking promising for Democrats. I think that north. Carolina is going to be very close, but you know it's looking. Mainly for Democrats main. Let's talk about main for just a second, so Jon Krakauer for the national journalist plague reporter Goodwin Bit contrarian. Win Up to Maine, wrote the following column which I think he tweeted you can. You can find it, which is basically. Collins has been in a tough race for all the reasons main Cavenaugh, etc, etc, but by running a ton of advertising on local issues, the paycheck protection program. Program you know kind of classic Senator Pothole sorts of things. She's managed to edge up to the high forties, a few points ahead of the Democratic candidate. who was you know fairly well regarded their Saragan now. They don't have their primaries been delayed till July, but getting his the overwhelming favourite, so collins is showing some life according to this article and that Terence poll that the campaign released now that said. I, I was still bet against counts myself. Because its main is presidential year, she's damaged brandon trump, but she has been doing a pretty good textbook case of trying to localize the election, and she has a little bit of long standing grip on this date from having been that person before her own collapses and sell selling out to trump, so do we believe it or do? We think it's an early summer squall kind of thing I mean I think the pandemic. Has, been is a real opportunity for these endangered Senate candidates, and I would even throw Lindsey Graham in here though he's not quite in the same danger that Susan Collins is a chance for them to reaffirm their ties to the state economies, which is you know the thing that's GonNa win them in the age of social, distancing themselves from Donald trump break like they can just sort of redouble their efforts to how? And restaurants and small businesses and show. You how the rubber meets the road when they're in office, so that's a gift to someone like Susan Collins National, profile I. Mean I I keep going back to. The the vote on impeachment and the vote for Brett Cavanaugh. That just has national groups. There is blood in the water. You know they see those as very high profile, weak points for her, and you know they could prove to be architecture of her ouster, so I mean I. Don't know i. she is a survivor though she somehow manages every single time. It's like sue. Everybody keeps slipping on the banana peel. She lays down like we know it's there. We know which way she's going to vote, but she keeps always doing this footsie like I'm the Independent. You can never predict even though her voting record is quite abundant, makes her allegiances quite clear. She is pretty masterful at getting. Sort of following this, you know she knows her state. She knows her state and her state knows her and You know it's going to be a very close race. One thing I would say. Is that Sarah Gideon who is the speaker of the Maine House. ran twenty thousand gross rating points Murphy of media up there uncontested kind of by the Collins people to define herself and that could turn out to be a pretty good investment you know. Makes it harder to murder her later. Which you know Mitch and the cows people have examined Hallett for a one last one because we're give the DEM's salute here Arizona. They have almost put that race away in a horrible candidate has kind of disintegrated Mark Kelly has proven to be a good candidate in in the state that may be every bit as important as Michigan Wisconsin and Pennsylvania and the presidential, so that's one place with a lot of good democratic news double digit lead..

Exclusive reporting from the politico magazine emails of top national Republican campaign committee officials stolen in a major two thousand eighteen no this didn't happen. In two thousand sixteen didn't happen in two thousand fourteen didn't have it in two thousand seventeen just happened in two thousand eighteen this is Alex is in Staten John Bresnahan writing over in the politico, the House Republican campaign arm suffered a major hack during the two thousand eighteen election, exposing thousands of sensitive emails to outside intruders. According to the three senior party officials. The Email accounts of four senior aides at the national Republican campaign committee, the Republican committee were surveilled for several months. The party officials said. The intrusion was detected in April by an NRA vendor who alerted the committee and its cybersecurity contractor and internal investigation was initiated in the FBI was alerted to the attack said the officials who requested anonymity. However, senior House Republicans including Paul Ryan, the sneaker of the house. Minority leader Kevin McCarthy minority whip I'm just using the new titles now because I'm just going to get ahead of the schedule Steve Scalise or not informed of the hack until politico. Contacted the N R on Monday with questions about the episode. Now was that something the leadership of the national Republican? Campaign committee. Didn't know about the hack until political know about the hack how did political find out about the hack. You know what I think happened? I think the Russians hacked the. I think the Democrats benefited, and that's why they won the election. And I think it is about damn time. We get ourselves a special counsel to investigate what the Democrats knew about the hack into the Republican, and our CC, I think in outside actor did this to the benefit of the Democratic Party. I think these elections we just had this uncharacteristic wipe out of Republicans nationwide through the use of fraudulent harvested ballots demands a special counsel at the department of Justice level. Let's begin questioning Pelosi and Schumer waters shifty swallow. Well, all of them. I think they all may have benefited I agree with you. However, Brett just one one thing Republicans really shouldn't have hired the DNC's the same firm the DNC us, which is crowd strike. Did they hire crowd strike? They did. Well, that's. Even more evidence. We have more proof that it was the Democrats that that that are clearly look, I don't care that. There's no evidence. There's no evidence Donald Trump colluded with the Russians, but I'll be darned if I'm not going to spend the next two years contending Democrats stole that election that it was an invalid election rampant voter fraud, vote harvesting ballot harvesting, and I'm gonna I as far as I'm concerned, this was a stolen election. The Democrats are not the legitimate leaders coming in and we are going to call repeatedly for the investigate. I want a special counsel. Whoever becomes the attorney general you need to commit to a special counsel. And I want every single democrat that that is out there in public to be asked by the press. Do you believe the NRA was hacked in two thousand eighteen do you believe the in our was hacked? What are you prepared to do about it? Are you prepared to resign your seat are you prepared to give up the majority in the house? FBI spokesperson declined to comment on the investigation into the incident. None of the information access during the hack, thousands of emails from senior aides has appeared in public party officials said and there were no attempts to threaten the leadership during the campaign with exposure of the information, of course, not because if you were if you were doing this as a means of figuring out strategy by the Republicans, you wouldn't expose that and say it's a threat or it's we want five thousand dollars and you'll get your emails back. You wouldn't do that? You would be this is Watergate style stuff. I want to know what Nancy Pelosi knows. And when she knew it, I want to know what Maxine Waters knows. And when she knew it, I wanna know what's swallow. Well, and what shifty chef and what a lie comings and the rest of them knew. And when they found out about this. And what are they prepared to do about this on the house side? We can't do any wedges Latian until we get an investigation we need hearings into this. I'm demanding hearings. The Senate needs. Is to have hearings into this. Because the Democrats clearly are not going to do the hearings on the on the house side. The Senate needs to do the hearings on the on the Senate side into this because we need to find out what's going on. And I want every democrat in public life at every level from city council up to the up to the congressional and Senate members. I want them to be asked a question. Do you condemn the Seahawk? The fact that the NFC was hacked and withheld that information is likely to prove embarrassing at a time when Republicans are grappling with an election, which they lost forty seats and control of asks when they probably lost because the hack I mean, look, we learned from watching the Democrats for the last two years and their claim their contention that the only reason Donald Trump won that election stole it from Hillary Clinton was because of the compromised Email servers, so I believe that sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander, and we must make the same exact assertions Representative Tom Emmer from Minnesota is going to take over as chairman this cycle a selection that was directly approved by soon to be minority leader Kevin McCarthy.
