How Democrats Have Responded to Other Attacks on the Capitol

"But I want to remind you as they talk about this today endlessly That there have been other attacks on the capitol building and what the Democrats did about it Our friends at American spectator wrote about this not too long ago And I've talked about it before in 1978 Jimmy Carter commuted the sentence of Andreas figueroa cordes a Puerto Rican communist Who participated in a shoot up of the well of the House of Representatives From the visitors galley He did it He said on humanitarian grounds given that the man's terminal cancer diagnosis the next year Carter took the unpardonable step of pardoning court as his three comrades In that 1954 action that wounded 5 congressmen they shot 5 congressmen From the gallery and Carter Carter pardoned the three that were still alive and commuted the sentence of the ringleader That's how much they care About protecting the capitol building on the last day of his presidency Bill Clinton granted a full pardon to Susan Rosenberg who was she 16 years into a 58 year sentence for possession of guns in over 700 pounds of explosives Did that happen on January 6th I remember the weather underground in numerous of its succeeding splinter groups Rosenberg allegedly participated in the 1983 bombing of the U.S. capitol as a member of something calling itself the armed resistance unit

"He has written a hell library of books. Hot off the presses is the devil and Bella Dodd co authored with Mary and Nichols, one woman's struggle against communism and her redemption. It's quite ironic that this book is freshly published as a good friend of the show, Paul was defrocked from the Catholic Church, a father Frank pavone for crimes that have not actually been annunciated by the Vatican, a strong conservative, very strong pro life advocate. This book has some shocking things to say about the infiltration of the religious establishment in the United States, does it not? Yeah, sure does and really to segue from what you said before about the name calling, the things that they engage in. Bella Dodd was like a female Whitaker chambers. And when she left the party in June 1948, she gets a call at her home from an AP reporter who says doctor Dodd, we have a statement here from the Communist Party. It says that you are anti Negro, anti Puerto Rican, anti semitic, pro fascist, pro Nazi. Do you have a statement to make ma'am, right? And it's exactly what they said they've been doing this for a hundred years. I mean, that's page one of the playbook. As soon as they want to go after you, they just go, oh, page one, what does this say? Oh, I see racist. Right? It's the linsky tactics of isolate triangulate and then destroy. That's the alinsky I left wing tactics, whether it's Bella dot in the 50s, whether it's Whittaker chambers in the 60s it doesn't matter. So

Yeah. But I don't remember it. But thank you. From a historical context, you, of course. I've heard of it. Yeah. Yeah. Okay. The Puerto Ricans were being blamed for everything in New York. And so my dad with his real name is Ramona stairs. And casting director said, dude, what? You don't look anything like you don't look Puerto Rican. And so he decided, hey, but even in 1979, 1980, when I started going out on auditions, casting directors and managers and agents here in this town would say, you know, you have to Shane name you should use it. You don't look Hispanic and my dad and I had that conversation. He said, don't make the same mistake I did. Yeah. What did you say? I made other mistakes. Was there any discussion between you and Charlie or your dad why he chose to keep it and you didn't or it just was personal decision? Charlotte takes shortcuts. Oh, what?

Biden Lies About Puerto Rican Roots

"President Biden has been in the news a lot recently and not for things that he should be in the news for, like, running our country correctly. But he's been in the news for the really astounding litany of lies that he's been telling. Of course we all know that President Biden is no stranger to deception, but it seems like even in the past week or two weeks. There's been an extraordinarily high uptick in them. I want to play some of them for you. First, he said that he was sort of raised in the Puerto Rican community of Delaware. Let's roll that clip. We have a very relative terms, large Puerto Rican population in Delaware, relative to our population. We have the 8th largest black population in the country and between all minorities. We have 20% of our state is minority. And so I was sort of raised in the Puerto Rican community at home, politically.

"President Biden praising one of the first responders in Florida for his efforts during the hurricane, and this guy is going to lose his job because he's not getting vax. Yeah, and I'll tell you, I'm starting to get more and more irritated with this whole vaccine thing because the more that comes out about it, it's scary for a lot of people, right? And they're not talking about it, but the evidence is there. The amount of young people that have died or have been sick from this, again, just own up to it. If it was a mistake, if we didn't know the true, I guess what would happen with this vaccine? Fine, just own up to it. But like you said, what they keep doing stuff on is they keep just doubling down. Doubling down, doubling down, tripling down, quadrupling down. That's all they've done with this whole thing. And to be honest with you, if you don't see it yet, there's something wrong with you. So does that mean you're not getting your 15th booster? That means I didn't get my first shot. Yeah, I mean, it's like you keep seeing these commercials. Even Biden though before the hurricane, the president went out and said, you know what? A great hurricane prep is to go out and get your booster. Is he nuts? He's out of his mind. Okay, not survival, not how am I going to live? How am I going to survive a hurricane? It's like, ah, you know what? Before you die in that tsunami, go get boosted. You'll be healthy. You'll be healthy. You'll get wiped out by the hurricane, but wow, you'll be boosted. I mean, it's unbelievable. And again, I'm joking about it. Listen, I'm a 30 year old guy. I made the decision and at the time I was 28 to say, you know what, or 29? I'm a healthy, young individual, I'm not going to get the vaccine. I believe I have that right. I haven't had a flu shot since 2000, right? I have that right. People have those rights. And guess what? Life is full of chance of stuff on. If you don't want to get the vaccine and you die of COVID-19, well, that was a decision you made. And you have to live with it or die with it, right? That's what so we're not talking about like, you know, they remember in the beginning, it was like, if you don't get vaccinated, you're going to kill others. You're going to kill grandma. Yeah, yeah, yeah. No, it's actually grandma may kill me by carrying it actually is what the data is shown, right? And no one cared about putting a sick grandma with COVID around other grandmas who didn't have COVID. And then they were killed. Right. But there were politicians who said you will kill grandma if you don't get vaccinated. They said that. These are the same politicians telling me if I want the tops or Wegmans without a mask on that I was a mass murderer or two. Or if he didn't wash your groceries. People were actually getting to go groceries. People put them in the back of the car. They go home and like bleach their bleach. They bleach their groceries. Crazy. But here's the thing though, but it's the arrogance. Isn't it the common denominator though? It's the arrogance that we know better than you. Forget your data, forget science, forget facts. We know better. So we're going to dictate to you what you should think, what you should feel because we are right and we're wrong.

"Not like this little bitch, John Leguizamo, who's so pissed off that James Franco has been picked to play Fidel Castro in a new movie. Like was almost pissed at Franco's not Latino. And he let himself be heard the other day when news broke that the producers of this movie let the casting out of the bag. He doesn't care that the producers and casting director were looking for an actor who most resembled the Cuban dictator. They didn't care what nationality the actor was, only that he could act and that he resembled Castro. And frankl got the gig. This is why I hate John Leguizamo. He sits there and says publicly how wrong it is that a non Latino gets to play a Latino. But does he think we forgot? That the Puerto Rican John link was almost accepted roles playing in Italian? In the Super Mario Brothers film and also on the summer of Sam movie? So shut your pie hole, Johnny. It goes both ways. It's called acting. I'll take it so goddamn serious.

Republicans Will Start Winning Seats in Hispanic Communities

"Debbie and I have both been talking on the podcast about the remarkable developments that are occurring in the Hispanic community. And not just the Cubans and the Venezuelans, but a shift across the board. It's certainly happening with Mexican Americans. I'm not sure what's happening with Puerto Ricans. I suspect it is to a degree as well. And this is a move toward the GOP. It's not to say the GOP is now winning a majority of Hispanics, but it is a way of saying that Republicans are going to start winning seats. In heavily Hispanic areas and at one time, Republicans who were lucky to get 15 or 20% of the Hispanic vote, Hispanics were by and large seen as voting sort of the way of the blacks. And the blacks are ten 12% for the Republican Party. Republicans would think, well, we're doing really well if we got 20% of the Hispanics. Well, no, Republicans are now setting their sights on 40, 50, even 60%. So in other words, Republicans are now competing for the Hispanic vote. And this is, this is a huge development because I think longer term if Hispanics now become part of the Republican coalition that bodes very well for the long-term future of the Republicans as a majority party.

In Terms of Voter Integrity, Can the U.S. Learn From Puerto Rico?

In Terms of Voter Integrity, Can the U.S. Learn From Puerto Rico?

"Voter integrity laws in the United States are hugely controversial by which I mean that they have the left and the media left. Screaming, I just saw in social media. Elizabeth Warren, you know what these laws are about. They're about suppressing the vote. They're suppressing women to suppressing persons of color, they're suppressing college students, and so we have this kind of drum beat to the effect that the very nominal measures that are being taken in a number of states to protect the vote are somehow voter suppression. Now, there's a very interesting article. This is actually from AEI. And it's a long time since I, well, I don't even know if I've ever cited in the AEI report on the podcast. Which kind of gives you an idea of how out of it AEI is generally now as a so called think tank. But this is an interesting article. It's about voting laws and Puerto Rico. And this is written by a guy who lives in Puerto Rico, so he actually knows what he's talking about. And I want to highlight a few items. He goes first, you have to obtain a voter ID card before you can vote in Puerto Rico. He goes, this is the laminated photo ID with holograms in a barcode. It's completely separate ID from your driver's license. It's a voting ID. And he says to get the voter ID, you go to a voter registration office, you got to bring your birth certificate and another photo ID or your passport, as well as proof of being a Puerto Rican resident like your property bead or utility bill. So he says, then when you show up to vote, he goes to inspect your voter ID card and they scan the barcode. And he says, not only that, they also scan your hands with the blacklight to make sure you haven't already voted. So there's actually a kind of Mark that is deposited in your hands once you vote and you make sure you can't vote twice because it will, it will be highlighted by the scanner. Then they find your name on a list of registered voters. And on this list, your name has your picture next to it so that they can match your picture on the photo with your voter ID

"Obviously. But not as many newspapers, obviously no social media or nothing like that. But it was cordial to everybody and he met he made everybody feel comfortable. Even though he was a, like I said before, the biggest superstar, the most important guy in Puerto Rico, he did act like it. He had like he was just, you know, anybody else. And he made everybody else feel very comfortable with him and my dad's always said that he was so humble. Even though he was a superstar that he wanted everybody to all of us to make sure that we try to follow that path. So I'm sure that you got to know Manny seeing guillen long before you joined the pirates, but even then he was someone who always had a presence has always had a presence with the pirates, Steve blast, David Mariners, were talking about Manny being just so devastated, feeling like he had lost his big brother. Have you ever spending time talking with Manny about those days after when he was out swimming around looking for clementi? Without a doubt, especially when I joined the parrots on a third base coach. And even as a manager manager, I talked to many. Because I wanted to know, but, you know, from himself, you know, from his mouth, what was that all about? I heard all the stories and the fact that he went there and scuba diving trying to find his body all that stuff and he told me he said it right to my face or everything that I went through at that time. And there's another guy that is a tough guy, but when you start talking about Clemente and what happened that day, he started crying, you know, and you can see that the paints that he feels every time he needs to talk about Roberto Clemente. That was his big big brother. Maybe a father figure for many. And to this day, he reveres. And he loves the guy. Literally he was trying to find him. He always thought he was going to be able to do it. He wanted to be the one that saved clementa because in many ways he feels like Clemente safe him. You know, while he was playing and he did a lot of things for many that are not too many people would have done and he helped money to become a big leaguer. So that he is. And money is a great great person. Well, he always credited clementa for to help him out to be the person that he is. So there's a lot of stories that money tells you about the on and off the field. And he's very interesting, but you know sometimes you try to stop because talking to him because I know he's very you can feel the pain in many sides that are one way he stuck when he talks about Clement. Well, he loves the guy. He loves again. Most of, you know, I'm assuming you probably didn't get a chance to see him play in person in the big leagues. Most of what you and I know at our age is from highlight clips, but you've played the game in an incredibly high level. You played with Ken griffey, junior, you played with Alex Rodriguez. When you watch those clips of Clemente, what's a play that just jumps out at you where you just like, oh my God. What are some of those observations you have as someone who's played so much baseball? Throw the throw from the corner and in the wars series, even though they got too third base, even though the guy was safe at third base, but when you see the highlight in the war series against the Orioles in 71 from the corner there to all the way in the air to third base, maybe a lot of us coaches and outfield culture would say that you shouldn't be throwing that ball to third. Because he was in a corner. I know shot. What he did was he was unbelievable. And then obviously the Homer to put the pirates ahead in our series in the 7th game and the athleticism that a guy but remember in 71 clementa was what the 38 years old, 37 years old, he was playing at a super high level at that time. He didn't have the help. You know, you know, all the equipment, all the nutritionists, all that kind of stuff that private planes, all that stuff, and he was playing on a super high level and a war series at that time. He was very productive. So that says a lot about what type of player he was and you know he clementi had all the parks and all that stuff that we have right now. Private planes, nutritionists and weight liftings and coaches, all that kind of stuff. Who knows, it would have been playing until he was like,.

"An associate editor of The Washington Post and the author of many books, including clementi, the passion and grace of baseball's last hero. David, how you doing? This is great, because you're great to be with you. Hope you enjoy it since I mentioned to you in the message I sent to you. When we get to this time of year every year, I always think back to being 8 years old and hearing the news about clementi, how did you what do you remember about the time you heard about that news from December 31st, 1972? Buster, I was 23 years old. I was the weekend and night voice of wib radio reading the news at night. And as I recall, it was, I was, you know, as a holiday, of course, is New Year's Eve and so I was working that night. And I remember I was in the small office with a with a teletype machine and it started playing as it does when there's something special coming over. And so I read as the type was punching out about Clemente's death. And he was my favorite player buster. I mean, I grew up in Wisconsin. I loved Henri urin and the Milwaukee braves. Were inspired lubert, Billy bruton, but there was something about clementi that just drew me to him. Every kid I think has someone whether it's an athlete or a singer or a writer who just has a special connection for them. And for me, that was Roberto Clemente for a lot of reasons, but in any case, what I saw, you know, I was overwhelmed with grief. And I turned that grief into action. And I had a 5 minute newscast that night and I devoted the entire newscast to Roberto Clemente. So I'm sure the listeners, if they're worried, what the heck is he doing? But that's how much he meant to me. Well, I don't know if you saved a copy of what you said on air or if what you remember about that, but was it difficult to get through for you? It was difficult, you know, that was the beginning of my career as a journalist. As a journalist, you learn how to separate briefly your personal feelings for what you're doing at the moment. But yeah, as I recall, I played a Puerto Rican song. I had some what they call actuality. I guess you would know that from radio of climate talking. I recalled his 1971 World Series and then just reported what the AP had at that point about the plane crash, which was not much. And so you know it was decades and decades later when I decided to do this book that I really uncovered the tragedy needless tragedy of that plane crash. So obviously your fandom was an initial inspiration for you and doing the book. Tell me, walk me through your thought process as you decide, okay, I'm definitely doing this. Well, you know, there are a lot of fleets that I root for, whether they're Green Bay Packers or Milwaukee Brewers, you know, my teams or other players that I like, but you know I'm never going to write a book about Aaron Rodgers or Brett Favre, but I wrote a book about Vince Lombardi, because he represented so much more about the mythology of competition and success in American life. And similarly, I thought Roberto Clemente was cheered to write about the sport that I love and about a human being that I was fascinated by. But also I had some larger themes to it about the role of Latino ball players in America, the role of immigrant migrant workers in a sense. He wasn't an immigrant because Puerto Rico was part of the United States. But he was a migrant worker plight is trade. He had to overcome two prejudices of both race and language, and he was that what I would call rare athlete who was growing as a human being as his talents were somewhat diminishing. So many athletes sadly, once their athletic talents are gone, their struggles, what to do with life, and I could see clementi learning and growing as he was getting older and becoming a more powerful figure politically as a humanitarian. And as a leader of people. Yeah, when we talked to Steve last yesterday, he mentioned that he wouldn't have been surprised if Clemente wanted to be in the governor of Puerto Rico. And he spoke to exactly what you mentioned that you couldn't take your eyes off him. He said, you know, he was a guy that he said, I'm a professional player and I couldn't take my eyes off him. As you were doing your research, what were some of the stories that really took your heart as you related talk to his former teammates about that night? December 31st. Well, all of them were completely broken up. I think blasted juicy and some guys were in a New Year's Eve party. Manny said guillen was just totally crushed. He was like, Clemente's big brother. Vic power had the great Victor power another player I loved in that era was had gone to Nicaragua with Clemente previously when they were running the Puerto Rican team in the Caribbean World Series. He sort of had this haunting feeling that something horrible had going on. It was an emptiness. Orlando subpoena described how New Year's Eve in Puerto Rico is usually the most joyous raucous evening of the year. And he felt this eerie quiet, even before he knew what had happened with that plane. Clementi was, you know, he was not a safe, even though he's now sort of regarded as one. In the Spanish speaking world and it Pittsburgh. He was a beautiful agitated contradictory on settled he was proud of everything, including himself, but he had this these characteristics that were transcended most ball players. And so they were by the time of 1972, he had matured to such an extent that every player on the pirates and most of the league were in awe of climate. And so it was stunning. Here's one of the od things about it is that he was like, it was impossible to believe that he was dead. The people of Puerto Rico thought they would come walking out of the sea. They waited along the shoreline for days afterwards, just thinking they clementi would still be alive. And yet, for his short life, he was always haunted by death and a fear that he would die young and often had nightmares that he would die in a plane crash. Can you relate the conversation he had with Manny sangin about what he did after the plane crash swimming and looking for clementi? To many chlamydia was everything. He was his big brother, his soulmate, and he went, you know, while the other pirates were mourning, Manny went into action. He went out in one of the boats, and went diving looking for the body. Day after day, and it was, you know, it was just he is one of those who couldn't believe that Clement could really be gone. And so he was, you know, it was both a physical search editable search for something that was that he couldn't believe was lost. Manny was the sort of Clemente was had a hidden sense of humor and joy of life. With Manny was all right out in the open. And so he was he was a boon to Quebec as well as COVID was a big brother to him. You know, I had read in your book about how long the grief lasted among the pirate players and then to hear Steve tell that story about going to spring training and then opening day and then it's just something they relive and relive and relive and continue to add grief..

Lady Gaga's 'House of Gucci' Is a Bust

"Let's talk about the House of Gucci. It's getting killed by critics. And that has to be killing Lady Gaga because I think she's gotten addicted to getting great or near great reviews and her acting work. I mean, I don't want to see her in fucking Tony Bennett saying, I know what's coming on in the next couple of days. I've been seeing ants for it. I'm not paying attention. When is it on? Where is it appearing? I don't want to know. I just think it's so silly when a young spry pop star sings with an old decrepit man. I love Tony Bennett, but no one can listen to his music anymore while he was alive. But he didn't die right. He's almost dead. I forget. I know he's right there. He stops singing. He retired. Thank God. You can't keep singing people. I mean, do you just want to see him walk on stage and say, hi, I'm Tony Bennett. Is that all you care about? You know he can't hit those notes anymore. Just get his albums. Don't make the guy sing anymore. But Lady Gaga did this thing years ago, okay, Tony and Levi, okay, great. It's a cute novelty thing. Enough. But now she's in the House of Gucci. And look, I love that she's Italian. I remember when she was named Stephanie germanotta and she was a hostess at a restaurant in Greenwich Village called Palma. Great restaurant. She had this ability to sing that nobody knew yet. She knew, but she's turned into a magnificent singer and a decent actress. I like the stars born a lot. House of horrors, people dig. I haven't seen it yet. I heard it's pretty good with her in it. She did not nail this Italian accent. I told you the second I saw a preview. Nope, don't go near this movie. It's gonna be awful. It's gonna be so much of a charade, I said Adam Driver is too Jewish to play an Italian. I didn't know he was Jewish. To me, he looks like as my father would say, his face looks like the map of Israel. He just looks like a Jew. There's nothing wrong with that. There are plenty of people Dustin Hoffman looks like a Jew. Plenty of you guys look like a Jew and plenty of people look Italian and Puerto Rican or whatever. Irish. He looks a Jewish. I can't believe he's not Jewish. But he still mastered the Italian accent better than Lady Gaga.

And that's why it was so interesting to be able to integrate. Monica beverley hills. And that's why. I appreciate so much. That monica hills has appeared. On cooking with drag queens. She has appeared on the feast of fun. And i i really see her will she. She s she. Monica belly hills is really well known because she was on rupaul's drag race but she has used that visibility to talk about trans issues and trans rights. For sure. you know. Monica you know to be clear. Though from my understanding with monica is that she understood and was out as a trans person before she got on. Rupaul's drag race but in a sense went back into the closet. Get on drag race. She wanted that experience and she knew if she presented as as a as a trans woman to them she would probably knock interesting. She did have that that moment where she was coming out as trans it was. She was coming out as trans to the people that were there but she already knew what was in her heart and many friends support. I mean it's very clear just in the ratings of rupaul's drag race. It's it's a lot more popular. Tv show in puerto rico on the island than it is. In the united states. For example puerto ricans in there in our dna culturally and love people with too much makeup on in the business. We have an innate deep appreciation for drag that transcends. Not just you know. Lgbtq spaces but it is part of our mainstream culture as part of daytime television. It is part of comedians repertoire. And i guess. I you know as somebody who's very much embedded in puerto rican culture as you and i are and marc as well. Why do you think. Puerto ricans love drag so much..
