Fresh update on "republican senate" discussed on Mandy Connell

"Friday. Erin called in just before we broke up the bottom of the hour, and he's been patiently standing by. So let me take his question before I move on on your own Kay away. NewsRadio what's on your mind? No, Aaron. Aaron, are you there? Oh, yeah. Mike, you maybe listen to the commercials. I got you. Okay, Well, we're on the way out. We're on the air now. So go right ahead. What's your come into question. I just want to say that from listening to your commentary, basically, I mean this country's been around over 20 years. And the Democrats and Republicans have have had monopoly of power in this country for that low and listen to you. It seems like it's loves his country exist. There's no way to break that triangle. Hold of that that monopoly power in this country. I happens in my lifetime. I don't know if it's gonna happen in your lifetime. But I hope it happens in my life. What do you think? Well, let me let me start with the definition of a monopoly in the sense of any economy. Ah, company has a monopoly. When they have complete control of an economic segment. Alright, alright, duopoly is when two companies have complete control of an economic segment. And they collude to serve their own purposes at the expense of the public. Unholy Grappelli is when several companies Mm. Share control of the market and also conspired to advance their interests at the expense of the public. The OPEC cartel, for example, is an example of a of a a non league happily, all right, so the Democrat and Republican Party can't possibly be a monopoly because their rivals they both want different things. Little guys. All right, So I think what you're saying is two parties dominate Yes, public policy, but they dominate public policy with completely different agendas, and it wasn't always the Republicans and the Democrats. It was the federalists and the anti federalists. There's a party called the Wigs that came along there was attempt by Ross Perot with his Reform party. But when all is said and done the structure of our government Is inclined to have two individual parties who differ. Mm hmm. Exchange power. Sometimes one party's in power. Sometimes another party is in power when a third party comes along, like the Republican Party, which didn't exist before 18 56. When the Republican Party came along as a third party. It lost the first election that Iran in but then the other major party faded away the wigs and it reverted to a two party system, with the Democrats and Republicans dominating now. Up until the last. I don't know 20 years or so. The Republicans and Democrats used to be able to compromise when Ronald Reagan was president. Remember, the Democrats had control of the House of Representatives for his entire eight years Reagan had control of the Senate or the Republicans did for six of his eight years then the Democrats won the Senate in his last two years. But even at the beginning, tip O'Neill was the speaker of the House. And and he and Reagan actually liked each other, although they were clear rivals, but they were able to work out compromises. What's happened? In the last 20 years is is that the parties aren't compromising anymore because the differences between the two parties are are so great and irreconcilable as as they are now give me an example of what would have been an obvious compromise early in the Trump administration. Uh, you know what? Doc is right? Yes. Okay. Deferred action for childhood arrivals. Dhaka is a program that allowed Children who were brought into this country by their parents illegally. It gave them legal status. But it was kind of a vague legal status because they weren't citizen, but they were regarded as being here legally. Now. Barack Obama wasn't able to get that passed through Congress, so he did it by executive order. And it stood. Well. When Donald Trump became president, he was willing and Mitch McConnell in the Senate was willing to compromise with the Democrats and go ahead and legislate Dhaka for the benefit of those kids, most of whom aren't kids anymore, But at one time they were But it was gonna be a compromise. The trade off was Trump would agree to sign legislation, and McConnell would agree that it would pass the Republican Senate to legalize these kids in exchange. For the Democrats agreeing To allocate $5 billion for Trump to build his border wall. Alright, Trump wanted one thing they wanted the other thing. They both oppose what the other guy wanted to the other side wanted, And that was the compromise. It was a fair compromise. And by the way, $5 billion for the border wall. Do you know how much money we spent already on covert and everything associated with it going to be in the trees? Yeah, it'll be about $5 Trillion when this next bill is passed. 5 $trillion trillion is 1000 billion, so $5 trillion is $5000 billion. Trump wanted $5 billion compared to $5000 billion the finishes border wall and in exchange, Republicans would go ahead and cut if I Doctor. But the Democrats flatly refused, especially Nancy Pelosi in the House simply because they didn't want Trump to be able to say he delivered on that campaign promise. It's a classic example of a failure to compromise based on obstinacy on and that's where we are today for the duration of the Trump presidency report. Democrats wouldn't give an inch on anything. No, nothing it is And I have one more thing before I go. What you thought about this past lesson wasn't any shenanigans. What do you mean? What do you honestly think about this past election with Trump invited? What? You think what happened in the states? Yeah, I've talked about that at length and I've written a couple of columns about it. Hmm, About go to complete colorado dot com.

Georgia Runoff Elections Today to Decide Control of the Senate

"As we mentioned at the top of the show. It's election day. In georgia control of the us senate hinges on the results of to runoff races there we wanna dissect things even further and find out what's motivating and conservative voters to do that. I'm joined now from georgia by our national politics reporter. Josh jamerson josh. Good morning the morning josh. Let's first talk about turnout. What our expectations. Early voting certainly wasn't option so already. We know that this is the largest turnout in any runoff election. In the state of georgia and republican secretary of state has confirmed that and early indicators. Are that more than three. Million georgians have participated in the selection election either by voting early in person or by voting by mail in that process voting early in person. Brats december fourteenth. And now. we're just waiting for election day in their two things. One is that democrats feel like they did really well in some republicans acknowledged that democrats did really well in getting at their base voters particularly black democrats to vote early. Black voters are making Up a larger share of the electorate as in the runoff races and they did in the november election which is a good sign for democrats but republicans say that they can use the election day. Turn out the same day turnout among their base. The kind of more rural conservative as that is propped up republicans in georgia free for years that the election day turnout could still overcome to be a very high democratic turnout in the early vote josh. I'm curious about how much of the conversation is now. Focusing on the trump phone. Call with georgia's secretary of state. Is this becoming a prevailing issue for voters. I can just tell you that people seem to have made up their minds about how they feel about. David perdue kelly off the to republicans in jon ossoff in raphael were not to democrats. It does seem like people's notions are pretty baked in at this point and so people i talked to one have already voted and you know have already made up their mind. Without knowing the context of the call in secondarily think that the call only reinforces whatever their belief was prior to the revelation that it existed and particularly among the democrats. I've talked to. There's some prevailing doubt. Even though there's profound disappointment in the contents of the call among democrats there is this kind of doubt or skepticism that it would lead waves of republican voters to reconsider their support for the two senators. David purdue and kelly author to take things a step further is this election about local issues and representation in washington or is this whole notion of the balance of power in congress. that's really motivating people to vote. What i'm finding mostly is that it is a turnout. Abass turnout election and the base. That is the most motivated to vote is going to be the one that decides this election. There's not lot of persuadable in the middle. That either cam feels is out there and the stakes that they're using to keep people. Motivated is a nationalized environment on the republican side. Where joe biden as president needs this check on power needs republican senate to stop either efforts to rollback police departments or efforts to pack the supreme court. A lot of this these topics that democrats are divided on but these are things. Republicans are talking about and on the converse. Democrats are talking about wanting to make sure that joe biden's presidency is successful you know. He's able to pass the corona virus packages. he wants or social justice practices. You want so. It's very much a base election where the side that's most motivated to come out is going to most likely prevail there aren't that many people persuadable in the motivating factor that both parties are trying to use is. How should joe biden's washington govern and in that's the basis for how people are campaigning. And finally josh. what's the feeling about. The fairness of the elections in georgia are people raising an eyebrow to the process and to the integrity of the system yet. We reported pretty consistently that there are many people. Supporters of president trump. Who feel that. The process was not fair and they mostly site the president's own words and that's always been a powerful part of the platform that president trump has is that he has a lot of people who feel like he speaks for them and and represents you know their best interests and so. I think you see a lot of that reflected in the republican sentiment here in georgia and the candidates are trying to reflect that As well on the democratic side. I think that they are saying. We're listening to the governor. Who's a republican. We're listening to. The secretary of state is a republican people who would be in democrats view inclined to want to believe that president trump won georgia. And they're saying that everything was fair and square. Democrats are taking that as a sign that they're years longs efforts to flip. Georgia blue were credible and feel like president. Trump is trying to undermine that

Bipartisan, bicameral group unveils $908 billion coronavirus proposal

"To strike a deal to extend that aid. The starting point is a $908 billion proposal being pushed by a bipartisan group of lawmakers. It does not include the $1200 checks the direct payments that millions of Americans got under the cares act. It would prop up the paycheck protection program and extend unemployment insurance.

What Next Year's Redrawing Of Voting Districts May Look Like

"Year year is is a a once once in in a decade opportunity for all 50 states to redraw the lines of state and congressional voting District's In most places. State lawmakers are in charge of drawing those maps. So both parties poured money into state legislative races this year, and the result was a major disappointment to Democrats. Republicans won in almost all the states that will be key to redistricting. We've got three reporters with us to talk about what these fights will look like in different parts of the country. Ashley Lopez from member Station Kut in Austin, Texas, Dirk Vander Hart from Oregon Public Broadcasting in Portland and Steve Harrison of member station W F A in Charlotte, North Carolina. Good to have you all here? Hey, Ari. Hi, sorry. Actually, let's start with you in Texas. The state's getting more diverse, and it's one of many places where Democrats had hoped to take over the house and didn't what happened there. Yes, so those hopes were totally dashed. Democrats are hoping to gain a majority in the Texas house. You know, at least one chamber so they could have a seat at the table this time around because they've been completely shut out for decades, but much like every other state that Democrats were hoping to flip a chamber in they were unsuccessful. In Texas, they had their sights set on flipping nine seats. That were quite frankly, just out of reach for them, largely because those districts were drawn to favor Republicans by Republicans 10 years ago. So in case you wondered if, like redistricting was important. This is a good example. Why So Republican lawmakers are again completely in charge of the process, You know, from top to bottom and because of the U. S Supreme Court decision recently that said that states can gerrymander for partisan Basie's than they really don't have any reason to hold back. That makes it sound like Democrats in Texas have no tools at all. Is there any kind of check or balance on Republican power in the state? Yeah, well, like the last time the courts are really the only check they have right so Even though partisan gerrymandering his legal, which is drawing districts that favor of party over the other, drawing maps that discriminate against people of color is definitely not. That's illegal. And because race and partisanship sometimes go hand in hand, it might be kind of impossible for Republicans. Jerry Mander, based on partisanship without running afoul of racial discrimination laws. So and in fact, Stephanie Swanson with the League of Women voters of Texas, she said that this is actually been a persistent issue in Texas. So in the past 50 years, Texas has been found to have racially discriminated or violated the Voting Rights Act and every redistricting cycle. They could very much still do the same thing on Toe. Stop it. Yes! Oh, Texas has like a pretty bad track record with this and because of so much of Texas is growth in the past few years and decades has been overwhelmingly because of growth among communities of color groups say they're looking to make sure that those political lines draw like retain that political power and population growth that has accumulated over the past few years. All right, let's turn from Texas to Oregon because Republicans next year are going to have total control of 20 state. Legislatures, with Matt making power and Democrats are only going to have total control of seven, but Oregon is one of those seven. So Dirk Vander Hart, What does that mean for redistricting in your state? Well, that's right. Democrats here have super majorities in the House and Senate along with the governor's office, and as of January, they're going to hold the secretary of state's office as well. That's really notable here because in Oregon if the Legislature and governor can't agree on how to reach our legislative maps, the secretary of state takes over the process, and actually, in the past half century, the Legislature has failed to pass. They planned much of the time. So that is one reason Republicans were really adamant about hanging on to the secretary of state's office. In this year's election, there would have been at least some path for them to have meaningful influence in redistricting. Instead, though, a progressive Democrat named Show me a Fagan won the seat. So does that mean Republicans are totally frozen out in Oregon? As the Democrats are in Texas? You know for 2021 that absolutely looks like the case Earlier this year, there was an effort to try to establish a nonpartisan redistricting commission that would take control of the process from lawmakers. That's something Republicans were pretty supportive of, but it failed to even get enough signatures to make the ballot. So show me a fake in the new secretary of State has said she would appoint an independent commission to help advise her. We have not seen a lot of what that looks like. All right, let's head east to North Carolina, which has been the site of many high profile gerrymandering cases over the last few years. What things look like now in Charlotte, Steve Harrison. Yes. So I think it's safe to say North Carolina has been one of those bitterly contested states over political Jerry Mannering after Republicans took control here in 2010. It was a North Carolina case. It was heard by the Supreme Court in the summer of 2019, in which the justices said that Jerry Mandarin based on political party was not unconstitutional. And that was a decision that Democrats across the country said was bad for democracy. In North Carolina. There was also litigation and state court that was successful enforced Republicans to redraw legislative and congressional maps before the 2020 election. And with these new maps, Democrats were really hopeful they could win at least one chamber and have a say and drawing the new maps next year. But they had to win in rural and suburban areas. And like what happened in Texas and other places those hopes really fizzled out. The GOP kept control of both the House and Senate. And so what does that mean for redrawing the maps next year? Has the GOP indicated what they plan to do so they aren't giving any clues, But first they're doing a little bit of gloating. They're saying, Look, we want in 2010 on maps the Democrats drew and we want in 2020 on maps that Democrats said you were pretty fair, so they're taking a victory lap. The question is, are they going to take a hard line approach next year and draw the maps themselves and lock Democrats out? Democrats here are pretty worried. Here's Natasha Marcus, a state senator from Mecklenburg County, home to Charlotte. What I do think is that Republicans who run the General Assembly are smart, and they're gonna certainly Take steps to make things look transparent and one more thing. There's an assumption here that Democrats are going to benefit from new maps just because so much of the population growth is in cities like rally in Charlotte, which you're very blue. But the state's top Republican Senate leader, Phil Berger, is saying not so fast. He's making this kind of interesting argument that Republican voters in these cities are disenfranchised because the GOP doesn't have any representation there. So he's saying, Look, we have 30% of the vote and no members in the Legislature. So he's saying, Hey, maybe we should draw a safe Republican seat in Charlotte. So take a step back. These votes in November have implications for political power in the U. S over the next decade. What is this likely to mean? So, Yeah, one thing going forward in North Carolina, there was hope to have an independent commission to draw maps. That's what Democrats wanted. That's not gonna happen, and I think that's been a push in a lot of places around the country, and Republicans just aren't interested in doing that. So one thing I think you can have the possibility to continue nationwide is a situation where one party may get more votes for their state House chamber or state Senate chamber. But still have fewer seats overall. That is Steve Harrison of member station W F A E in Charlotte, North Carolina, along with Ashley Lopez of member station, Kut in Austin, Texas. And Dirk Vander Hart of Oregon. Public Broadcasting in Portland. Thank you all.

Bob Glazer on the Importance of Putting Principles & Values Over Issues & Rules

"Bob man. I'm so excited that you here. Welcome dose of leadership. thanks richard. i'm glad i may work. Yeah me too crazy times elections over. Yeah kobe's is ramping up. Thank god thank. God believes that i think i think so too. I think there's I don't know for me. I think i lean more libertarian. And conservative and i'm not a fan of one of them wasn't but i i don't know i think it's kind of a best case scenario. Most where you if you get a republican senate and you got biden in now people can have to work for it right so i'm kind of happy for inert administration mark forces people to have to compromise this sort of approach of like up. It's our way time to punish in. You know you know get reprimands for reagan for. It's like no one knows who started it. We're going to do this because you did i. I mean there's gotta be some things that everyone can can agree on. And yeah i agree. I hope i hope that Over works out that people will just start to come together a little bit. I mean someone was telling me that like ronald reagan. Won forty nine states was reminding me of that and i was like i. I would never happen in my lifetime again. Forty nine states and he did and I don't know you know i. It is funny. How who else not funny. But i mean we've all talked about nauseam. How how the divisive everything is. But i think is particularly talking leadership you know the the obligations that we have you know. We were talking pre recording. That i encourage because i got a pretty diverse mastermind group with all political spectrums. Kind of reminds me when i looked back at my parents. They had this circle of friends and almost all of them have passed away but they were all newly married in the late fifties early sixties. I mean you had you know. Jfk democrats you had richard nixon republicans. You had catholics yet. Protestants yet Jews and they all twelve six couples and they did live together with my point. They always played bridge when cards. They would get together once a month but they did live together and they would argue about politics and kind of ribbing sort of way but they loved each other and that's what seems to be missing in all of this right. I don't know how we can get back to that kind of ideal like where my parents in their friends where they didn't talk. Politics didn't rule their lives and it seems like politics. Lose everything right. I mean funny. In that case politics was probably knocked the threat right it was. Oh these are good decent hard-working people who share sharon values. And and and you know. I just think we're moving from look. Leadership is a very values based thing rang moving from you know values to sort of just hard lines that can't can't be cross And and yeah it to me. It's just we're just ruining objectivity and it's insulting people's intelligence it's like black and black white isn't wait. I don't mean in the racial sense. I mean we all used agree like that's a circle. That's where and now like these things are. Just you know it's a it's if if one side looking at it it's not a square and if the other side looking at it circle and i to me like critical thinking like a really important skill and it's just it's degrading or i don't know where it's going critical thinking certainly has suffered and I don't know. And i think back if you know looking back to when my parents were newly married like said in that kind of jfk era. Yeah i mean the you you mentioned values and principles and i think that's what's missing. There is a shared value. You know even if you were democrat or republican red or blue or whatever. The there was a hierarchy. Now simple low. They precipitate low it. That's right that that is that is. That's what's worrisome to me and look at massachusetts right so we were one of those one the state. that didn't vote for ronald reagan. Wherever pretty blu ray. We've republican governor right now with a eighty five percent approval rating like. He's done a really good job on covid he's been out in front. Like people are judging him on his on his merits. And what he's done. And i think if you know if we were in the you know we we got hurt early on but you know. He's a conservative also worked in the health industry so he had interesting balance like if we were one of the worst states in the country i think people would be more upset right and again that to me is out rightful leadership issue. Not a political issue in this notion of how leadership in politics have gotten. Totally intertwined is fascinates. Me i. it's it's interesting

"Hope the Republican Senate does is not give Nancy Pelosi ball control, the United States Senate, but we should come up with their own piece of legislation that basically states what our position is. We we Republicans in the Senate support building the wall we want to secure our border. We support president that if we don't like the fact that giving him this authority or any presents thirty under the national mercy. Let's change that act. Mike is going to have a Bill built. I'm co-sponsoring today. Does just that. So that's the more appropriate way of doing this is opposed to voting for Nancy Pelosi's resolution. The president has the authority because congress gave the I do not buy this argument that congress does not have the ability to give the president authority. If congress wants to cede its legislative prerogative, or if it wants to cede it's it's purview in some capacity to the president that that it specifies. I I don't I don't see where the mechanism is. That says there congress can't do that. And it's very clear, very plain English in this statue, the president can declare this emergency but ever gotten all caught up in this. And this is this is turned into unfortu- for Republicans. They've been split because some of them are all I love the constitution. And this is too much power to thirty. I think they're just flatly wrong. The ones who are telling the president that he doesn't have the right to do this. No. He very much does have the right to do this. And if it goes if it continues, or if he goes through the courts, I do believe that in the end he'll be found to have been correct all along but them at that point, you know, they'll have moved on. And they'll be they'll be investigating Barron. Trump they'll have a commission of Democrats that are just, you know, Barron Trump when did you start chewing bubble yeoman how much did you pay for it? You know, let little ten year old Barron on the stand the asking him crazy questions. Do you know anything about the Moscow tower deal? No, I mean, they're just going to go after a little baron and because they have no shame. They just have. No shame. I mean, I could see them finding any number of ways to you know, I there is at least some analysis now that says that the Democrats understand that they just are going after. Members of the president's family. They're going to they're going to have a real problem on their hands. I'm not saying that means the Democrats aren't so disgusting. They wouldn't do it ages would be counterproductive for them. I better not see some subpoena of Malania in front of congress or or then then the gloves really come off. And we're going to have to really think long and hard about whether whether there's there's room in this country for a political party. That's as crazy as the Democratic Party has become instead of trying to reform it, we may say, we need something new. We need to start from scratch here with the other party. Look, I agree with the president. And I think that the Republicans that are turning against him on this border security issue, are I think some of them are grant standards. I'll just say it. And I think that there are missing the point. Here's the president said play for I think that really is a very dangerous thing for people to be voting against border security for anybody, including Republicans. I really think that Republicans that vote against Florida security in the wall. I think I've been okay at predicting things I think they put themselves in great jeopardy. I agree. I think that they're going to have a very tough time explaining that to some of their constituencies, depending on who's up in twenty twenty and who's not. And it also does seem like this party everybody in the Republican party. I've noticed this. They want a piece of Trump's popularity all the Republican politicians and the Republican establishment. Now, they all want a piece of Trump's popularity, but they don't want a piece of his fights. They don't really want to back him up. You know, they want to cheer him on while he runs around smashing things and trying to crush his enemies. But they don't want to get into the fray themselves. You see this with the Republicans on healthcare on the border on on any number. The only thing we can count on from Republicans is tax cuts while we're twenty two trillion dollars in debt folks, I'm fine macaques cuts. But you know, what else we need spending.

"And so they did not force Donald Trump to wrestle with his own words in the Oval Office today. They did not force him to say Mexico is not going to pay for the wall. All and so I need ten Democrats in the Senate. Instead, the president lied and said he could easily pass a Bill through the Republican House representatives and get a majority of the Senate to vote for that the Republican Senate. That's not true. They probably could not get a Bill through the Republicans in the house. And instead the discussion today seem to be a discussion about the parliamentary device of the sixty vote threshold in the Senate that can block legislation like this there probably isn't a government funding Bill, but could get support from all the Republicans in the house and all the Republicans in the Senate anyway, so even that part of what presence said is not true. But Donald Trump was allowed to hide behind the idea publicly that this meeting was taking place simply because of this troublesome parliamentary threshold of sixty votes in the United States on it. But that's not why this meeting was taking place. This meeting was taking place for the same reason that Donald Trump is an unindicted co-conspirator tonight in the Michael Cohen case in federal court in New York City because Donald Trump lied to American voters. Donald Trump directed the illegal payments that Michael Cohen made during the presidential campaign. And then lied to the American public saying he knew nothing about it Donald Trump allied to American voters also saying that. Mexico would pay for the wall that why that Mexico would pay for the wall is the reason there was an argument today in the Trump Oval Office about the Trump wall. Robert Muller is never going to force Donald Trump to admit that he lied to American voters about paying for the wall, but the democratic leadership in congress should never give up on forcing Donald Trump to admit his lie to own his lie and tell America that Mexico will not pay for the wall. The Trump wall will never be built. We can all see that sometime next year. Donald Trump will probably stop talking about the wall when he realizes it is his most prominent failure. And he doesn't want to remind people of it. But the Democrats. Should never let America forget Donald Trump's big lie about his big wall. Leading off our discussion. Now, John how national fairs analyst for NBC news and MSNBC he's co host and executive producer of Showtime's. The circus. Also Genesis Klein editor at large at vox, and the host of the podcast, the Ezra Klein show and Kimberly Atkins, Washington bureau chief for the Boston Herald and MSNBC contributor, then as let me start with you tonight. I what I'm watching in the Oval Office for the most part with Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi is the old method. They are stepping up their game in a certain way, interrupting Donald Trump and playing to the cameras like Donald Trump is a, but they seem to think that it's gonna be a serious meeting in the Oval Office. And so we have to stay serious and present are serious position all the way through here. And one of the reasons they don't want to bring up Mexico will pay for the wall is they know how ridiculous it is. And they. They don't want those ridiculous words to come out of their mouths, but it seems to me they still room for them to figure out how to deal with Donald Trump in one of these meetings that turns out to be a circus. I do think that they did a nice job to give them some credit here of putting him in a corner. What struck me so deeply about that meeting? Donald Trump doesn't himself want the wall. That is not the meeting you hold if you want the Walt the difference in what he wants and funding and what he's currently got in funding is about three point seven billion dollars. I mean, Lawrence federal budgets that is nothing in the federal budget. If he wanted that wall. He would not have put that meeting in front of the cameras, which is something they kept saying, and he'd be willing to give them something for dreamers. Protections would be a very very easy trade it, actually, in fact, be popular trade for him to make an probably even for them to make. But the thing about Trump is he doesn't want the wall. He wants the fight over the wall. And that's where I think you're right..

"We'll look into a number stories in issues in the news will begin with a posse of angry off white man in the White House and the Republican Senate determined to plow through with the confirmation of Brett cavenaugh to the supreme court, regardless of Thursday's testimony by Dr blasted Ford and have a vote of the full Senate on his confirmation as early as next Monday or Tuesday, Bob shift and attorney who served as chief counsel for former Senator Russ Feingold for twelve years, and is the co author of an article at time magazine, Brad Kavanagh can't be trusted. We know because we worked as counsel to senators when he was in the Bush Whitehouse joins us. We'll discuss the contrast between the growing evidence against Cavanaugh and the increasing resolve of the Republicans to ram his confirmation through the Senate in stock. Contrast to the eight months Mitch McConnell held up Obama's nominee to the supreme court who never even got a hearing. We'll assess whether Kevin is third accuser who her lawyer, Michael Abernathy issue to unveil on Wednesday could be sufficient full, senators Collins and mccaskey to break from the lockstep of GOP determination, not to have an FBI investigation into these new and perhaps even more damage charges. Apparently, she is accusing Beth cabinet and his friend. Mark judge who the Republicans on the Senate Judiciary committee are preventing from testifying. Then we will speak with the founder of poss-. Blue Dulcie lime back who has covered the United Nations for decades and was an editor of the New York Times for more than twenty years. She joins us to discuss President Trump's address to the United Nations General assembly at which his absurd boasts about being the greatest president ever who has achieved a miraculous turnaround having made America great again. In just two years was greeted with mocking laughter from the leaders of the world gathered in the chamber, we'll assess whether the two thirds of Americans who are embarrassed by Trump's pandering to the ignorant isolationist delusions of the one third minority of the country who believe a global bureaucracy is about to destroy America. Sovereignty will stand up and be counted in November then finally with President Trump sharing. Tomorrow's UN Security Council meeting at which he's expected to single at Iran as enemy number one. We'll speak with revolutionary Iran's first embassador to the United Nations Monceau around a professor emeritus of international relations at Bennington college. He joins us to discuss the overheated belligerent threats today from Trump's national security advisor, John Bolton warning Iran, quote, if you cross us allies or our partners if you harm our citizens if you continue to lie, cheat and deceive. Yes, there will indeed be hell to pay and joining us now Bob Schiff who is an attorney who served as chief counsel for former Senator Russ Feingold for twelve years. He's the co author of the article at time magazine Pratt cabinet copy trusted. We know because we worked as councils two senators when he was in the Bush Whitehouse, welcome to background briefing. Bob shift. Thank you. So I guess if this point the question arises, how did a? A womanizer a drunk and a gambler get this far. I mean, this is pretty extraordinary when you look at the record that you have that Lisa graves and others have compiled from their experience with Brett I in terms of his basic honesty, but it seems like every other day now something's coming out of the woodwork man Michael avenue, and he's got a woman lined up to drop another bomb on Cavanaugh Senator Whitehouse asked him about his. Influxes of money for which there's very little explanation. And whether he has a gambling problem now, adequate answers have come on any of these major questions. So is this a case of the sort of Republican federalist establishment led by Leonard? Leo, just pushing people forth with unusual power and influence that they have. What would explain it to you to our audience? Yeah, I think that what you said it's actually quite very much at the bottom of this. Brad Kavanagh has been preparing and he has been prepared by other groomed for this position for his entire professional career. I mean starting you know, when when he. Worked with Ken Starr on the independent counsel investigation of President Clinton..
