"Uh, dibs. Furniture is out on the snowy Chicago streets. I see Ben Bradlee. You know, I I tend to agree with John CASS when it comes to dibs, and that is You gotta have, like, Ah, foot of snow. You gotta if if you could drive without shoveling Mm. I don't think you should be allowed to put lawn furniture out on the street. That should be the rule. Yeah. But if you do dig out of a big snowstorm, you have the right. I think I'm hearing you say to put your ironing board out there. Absolutely ironing board old, you know, Pool table You put some big if you're gonna go, go, go big. I did see. Did you see one of the alderman today? Tweeted a picture of a sticker that I guess streets and san put on somebody's dibs. Furniture that was out front and it's you know, it's said, You know, the city of Chicago does not sanction dibs, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. Please remove this item. By whenever otherwise it'll be thrown away. But it was the form had Richard M. Daley mayor, So I do appreciate the fact that the city has apparently cut back on its printing to the point that you know there were like, Hey, we still got a couple of those that Gibbs warnings with Boss dailies name on it so One. Why don't we used does before we move on to Ram Emmanuel? What? He's not the mayor anymore? No, no, I don't think he was a fan of dips. Was he Rama Manuel trying to go through mayor. But Mayor Daley was a fan. Rahm was smart enough not to say he was against it, but also I think kind of embraced it. And Lightfoot's had bigger fish to fry in last year's time to ask her about that tips. What who, what it was like the first press briefing at the White House under the Biden administration. One of the reporters, asked Jen Psaki, the White House press secretary. If Biden had decided to stick with the traditional Air Force one liberate the blue and white remember? Yeah, that's been the Air Force one delivery for decades, and we're getting a new air Force one plane and Trump wanted to paint it up. Look like T w A. It was kind of weird Red. Scheme, and this reporter got lit up for asking such a silly, inconsequential question that it was a softball for the Biden administration, and I heard it and I was like No. You know, it's kind of like the question about did like everybody knows you're gonna ask about Middle East peace. Everybody knows you're gonna ask about the city budget. Give me a question that actually catches somebody off guard and I'm coming in aviation Kik, So I am interesting that we're keeping the paint scheme, But I could see where that would be like, Oh, great question. Everyone else's like it. Actually, that's the largest does that whenever Demetrius Nice start talking about NASA and Rocket launches and such, like boring move on. It's like, please tell me something I want to know. Did you go to u of I am I remembering that correctly? Northwestern class? Okay, go cats, because no Speaking of NASA, Yeah. You've I alum Mike Hopkins, who's been aboard the International Space station for a couple of months. He was one of the two astronauts that was out for that space walk today, so it's pretty cool watching him out there, knowing Not only that he went to the University of Illinois but is so proud of it. His Twitter handle is actually Astro align. I Wow. That's what I mean. What a school, right. I mean to produce the engineers and science. Minds that they've done over the years. Yes, I just I don't know It's it's remarkable. Meanwhile, you just went to Northwestern came out of there. I don't know We're not gonna compare, but I just been. Did you go there? You have her. You know, I went to Missouri University of Missouri. Okay, Brochure said it had a good journalism school. I think it does. Yeah, it really does. I'll never forget the conversation with my dad.

You know, Northwestern's Gotta get journalism school. Why don't you go up there and I said, Well, Dad, I think that's a great idea. Other than the fact that I don't have the grades to get in, and we can't afford it. Good. The difference? Yeah, it's Missouri. Missouri will be fine. We'll take you there. I don't have to go down there and visit you do. It's like a 6.5 hour drive. Auggie. Hey, did you have a day off yesterday There was a snow day. It was not a snow day for me and my wife had my wife tour her meniscus, which is like a knee injury, so she had to have surgery yesterday. So I took her to that because of covert. Interestingly, I don't know if you've had to have any type of, you know, medical procedure done like that, But they don't allow guests and this was not in a hospital. This was in You know, it was a day surgery center. And yes, So I set out in the car for three hours. Labor along with like you could. You could literally see all of the rows of people who were just, you know, waiting and No. Then they just wheeled him out the middle of a snowstorm on the curb. Next s Oh, I beg your social media, and I wasn't tracking you. But I bet you're on Twitter, and I bet there's a lot of interesting stuff there to check out. Was that what you were doing? That's like, guessing. Yeah, I tend to think that if you're posting on social media when you're bored, as opposed to when you find something interesting. It's a recipe for disaster. That's true. It is true. Hey, vaccine rollouts when something we've been talking about here, and I know you will be a channel nine. What do you What do you know about this? So we're expecting?

"Posted that on our Facebook page the page I have with Marianne. So be good, too. Facebook dot com slash surrounding Marciano. You can see that. Quote and shared. A lot of people have been doing that already. And I didn't know this but In the last chapter of the book. Jim Tilmon rights. Was delightfully surprised and honored. When, upon my retirement from television news, the F A. A designated high altitude navigation checkpoint in my name. Tillman intersection. They use the letters T i l m N Another surprise came when United Airlines declared me to be an honorary United Airlines captain. Complete with an airline pilots hat. That's pretty cool, considering Jim worked for American And then he writes, But the major compliment came when Mayor Richard M. Daley proclaimed October 7th 1994 Jim Tilmon day. That was the day I resigned from Channel five. I just wanted to fly his name of that book By Jim Tilmon Oneto mention that This morning and we talked about him yesterday but didn't get a chance to really check out the book. I think Jim gave this to me when we interviewed him. Probably. I don't know if it was on radio or on Channel 11. And he signed the book. It's so cool to see this now to Bob, my buddy forever, Jim Tilmon. I will cherish that. 6 13 right now and just few minutes we'll go through our top six. That's six. The stories people are talking about today. And let's see. I wanted to also mention our campaign. Get a permanent memorial of some kind of lasting tribute for the great Jack Rosenberg, who passed away recently. He wasn't seen on Cubs broadcasts, but he certainly was heard in countless ways. Great legendary sports editor for WGN TV and Radio and World's Nicest Man, I think was a tie with Jim Tilmon. And I thought there should be some sort of honor for him. I don't know if it's AH street sign in the neighborhood here of the radio station or something at the ballpark. Like Dave in its idea, a statue next to the brick house statue of Michigan Avenue, but And I think they're moving or they're gonna move or they have moved the Brickhouse statue. I don't know what's going on out there. I haven't I haven't checked that out. But I'm sure whatever they're doing, the Brickhouse statue will be there. And having a Rosenberg statue next to him would be awesome. And and the other idea. I thought about was, you know they have those penance on the roof at Wrigley went out of pendant that says Rosie flying up there. That would be nice. If you have an idea. Go to WGN radio dot com. We've got some information posted there and Share your thoughts with us if he had any other ideas about this, Dave. I like the statue idea the statue would be the way to go now. I know they sort of cut back on the anniversary street signs because it was getting ridiculous. Everybody was getting a street sign. And then I think they changed the rule on that. Um, because they were they were honoring people who are still living. I don't think they'd do that anymore. We? We need to talk to the alderman Brendan Riley about that, But I'm not. I'm not sure that what do you think Rosie would have preferred? You think you would have? I think this he would have liked the statue next to break out a statue with his typewriter in the pipe going. Yeah. Yeah, that's what you need. And maybe the Haft on the desk or something, right? Okay, well, That you could have a little speaker playing the sound of typewriter keys clacking. Yeah. We have to check and see how much money we have to raise for the statue before we add the audio portion. You know who we should ask his Tom hags because they had a relationships, right? I bet I bet that he was I would think he's got a few bucks. You might roar away for this man is another great idea. Yeah, because they shared a love of old typewriters. And Tom Hanks actually wrote a book about that. And they communicated Why, Dave, you are apparently this sports reporting Just a sideline with you is just a hobby. Your your main Advocation is creative, Bob. It's all about ideas. There's no off position to the genius switch on Dave in its brain, 6 17. Uh ah. Here are a few morning updates for you starting with the weather. Steve. We may see some morning sunshine, but it won't stick around for long is clouds roll in in the afternoon, and some scattered snow showers are possible. We could see a dusting up to.

"That I recommend is, of course, the connected to Chicago podcast hosted by The dean of City Hall. Reporters doubled his own bill Cameron, who joins me now to talk about the life and legacy of big Jim Thompson, when you had heard first that he passed. What was the first memory of Thompson that came to your mind, Bill Cameron. Well, I would say the monthly shows we used to do on my Sunday shows when he was governor. We had time to really get into issues and talk about the way deals were made and politics was played, and he'd come in once a month just to do that on what was then W and make you You know, I was reading all the obituaries and especially the columnist Mark Brown had a fine when he's going to be your next hour. Neil Steinberg in the Sun Times as well. I was not aware how far back he went, You know, I knew him as a governor, I knew had been a U. S attorney. But first, he built quite a roster in that U. S attorney's office. A lot of superstars. Became superstars later worked under Jim Towns. Can you speak to that event? Yeah, He put a lot of daily Democrats in prison with the help of all those guys that are mentioned, including guys like Sam Skinner, who later became U. S attorney. But he made a career out of going after daily Democrats, but he never got to daily himself. He got to the number two guy Tom Kane, chairman of finance, who thought that they'd never get a never dirty a pole keen but finally sent him to prison. And that set the stage for his popularity, and the Republican Party decided to slay him for governor, and he want to easily over my college and otherwise very popular secretary of state in the 1976 elections. When Thompson first went to work for the U. S attorney wasn't it's kind of a back room deal that this U s attorney was going to retire. Move on in a year, and I was going to be Thompson's office after that need work with Mitchell out of the Nixon administration. Yes, sir. Wass. It was all planned because the other guy was going to go up to the appellate court, and it worked out beautifully for the Republicans. Didn't Thompson did he prosecute any other Republicans other than Spiro Agnew? There were a couple of on the county board some county officials, but they were token Republicans. It was really going after Dirty Democrats down at City Hall. And who did he unseat was a Dan Walker for governor. Walker was knocked off by Howlett in that primary. Okay, 76 because daily put up a little knockoff Walker, who wouldn't give daily the crosstown Expressway? Remember that one? Yes, I do. I vega over that. So he he got close to Richard J. Daley close, Teo took keen and put keen away, but never could was going after Richard J. Daley. Well, of course, but Richard J. Daley, like Mike Madigan, uh, always had a buffer between him and the dirty deal, and so they could never put their hands on. Richard J. Daley and for the summaries, and I would be surprised if they couldn't get Mike Madigan. But who knows? Yeah, I'm going to take the hunter on that. I don't see that happening either. I think it was gonna happen. It would've already happened unless this kind of sidebar unless what's that former lobbyist named McClane, Mike McLean, You know, but I think Madigan's too smart even to talk to McLane on, you know, unsecure telephone line and implicate himself. He just doesn't seem like that kind of guy. Back Tio Governor James Thompson talking about his life and legacy here with her own Bill Cameron. Did he ever express admiration for the building that bore his name after was known as the State of Illinois Building. Oh, absolutely. I mean, he made the pick. On what the building would be like. You know, the pick and salmon was his idea. So he was mighty proud of it. But mighty disappointed that seven construction workers fell to their death building it What was his? He didn't get married until he was running for office. Did he? And he was essentially just a hardworking bachelor. That was the the story of Jim Thompson. That's right. I think you know about Jim Thompson knows was. He was a moderate Republican who is interesting and making a deal by crossing The isle and fighting out with those Democrats needed to do things like keep the White Sox in the Southside or fix up Navy Pier and make it to the biggest tourist attraction in Illinois. In other words, he was not interested in fighting. As is so often the case today, but he was interested in finding consensus and doing what was good for Illinois. So we knew he wouldn't have to Richard J. Daley, but he had to cut a deal Richard M. Daley to get the white socks to stay in town. How did that come about? Well, they had to stop the clock in the Illinois house because there was a midnight deadline on DH hey, was on the floor, literally twisting arms, really putting the pressure on the last few votes. On DH. He needed a little more time and so somebody stopped the clock. And it was really more like 12 or three AM then just before midnight that they got the deal done. That's that's faster. That's just great. That's that's great. Stop the clock. Not not metaphorically, literally. Stop the clock. So Chicago So Illinois and the mayor at the time was not rich Daley was Harold Washington with the White Sox deal. Yes. When I was going through the Legislature, Okay. All right. Okay, but daily was mayor by the time Well, I thought it was. I thought it was. I thought it was Thompson daily and Ryan's door for the three guys wrong. Well, I think daily undoubtedly probably had some effect, but the deal was to do was done..

I think Rahm Emanuel was a successful mayor of the city of Chicago and all sort of personal and all those other kinds of things aside, just as a professional who watches and covers this stuff and for lifelong Chicagoan I appreciate his service. Appreciate what he did for the city and you never doubted his heart that, you know, of course, not true cared about this city. I don't really doubt the there's only one guy down the heart I've ever who is in the team Sawyer because he didn't want the job in the first to be dragged into the chamber and sworn in.

Well, this woman is Lilia Khabar. She was pulled over while driving the car. She says that the alderman loaned it to her. She's a thirty five year old mom and insurance broker charged with stealing the car, but investigators on text messages that show that the alderman knew that she had the car, and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, but she is not happy.

"Acting in by the mayor's winding down his last few weeks in office, and he's today was at the city club, and he gave his farewell as marriage. We talked really about one of the hardest moments. And you know, all you got is a hug. And. Shoulder. Here you are the mayor of Chicago. If you totally. Useless. Inadequate and. Donating clear if you like a family. They're making sure that your head. As you buy your day here here to hug them about their daughter that was when he was visiting family of India penalty after she was lost. And I got the one thing I've made some fun. You've made some fine, we've made some fun of Rama mangle. Even when running for mayor back in twenty we had a lot of fun with that lead might have even found and forced him to meet the guy who was pretending to be him sweater. We had never heard from again now. But we but this is wrong. Set went away. But he you know the one thing about him is he took the job, very very to heart definitely and, and seriously. And he an you know, moments like that, you know, it this isn't about being great for voting purposes, or, you know, for social media or anything like that. That's sitting in the living room camera's, not allowed in your just there because you're representing the city of Chicago in, you are, are on behalf of the citizens, and behalf of the police department that point on behalf of the, the city itself. You're, you're offering your condolences. And it's really that I think is those quiet moments and we could sit here and make fun of politicians and say, snarky things about him and get on social media. Get on the radio. Whenever it happens to be and say, whatever you want. But that's the tough part of the job. And that's not the kind of part of the job that I think people get enough credit for, and I certainly wouldn't want have been that no there that day. But mayor Emanuel, of course, has his own family. And you know, Richard m Daley, was the same way in terms of empathy. We saw them in some well, everything he did. We saw them in some human moments when back when Richie would talk about his own son was in trouble, and he would tear up and run his talking about stuff like that. That's, that's all real you, you can't be that cynical. These these, these are these are even being checking the board House Democrats ratcheting up the pressure on the Trump administration to comply with their congressional subpoenas tearing Nadler is. Is the chairman of the judiciary committee says that the attorney general has a day or two to hand over the unredacted Muller report. And if he doesn't comply Nadler, will hold him in contempt. Speaker Nancy Pelosi what even further? He lied to congress. He lied to congress and anybody else did that would be considered a crime. Nobody is above the law, not the president of the United States and not the attorney general being in general does not give you a bath to go said, whatever you want.

"Diverse views on important topics of the day in nineteen ninety one young woman named Michelle Robinson was hired for a position in the administration of Chicago. Mayor Richard m Daley the person who hired the future. Michelle Obama was Valerie Jarrett who became a close personal friend the Obamas and a senior adviser to President Obama through his entire two terms. How did this alternate insider earn her place at the center of history? She recently came to the Commonwealth club to discuss how she went from her birthplace in Iran to the White House. She was in conversation with London breed mayor of San Francisco this program as part of our good lit series underwritten by the Bernard Osher foundation. Now. Let's join Valerie Jarrett and London breed at the Commonwealth club. Well, Hello everyone. I'm London breed. The mayor of San Francisco, and I am so excited to be here today to have this amazing conversation with an incredible public servant. Valerie jarrett. Thank you so much Madame mayor. I love the sound of that. Don't you Madam mayor? I feel like I'm coming back home. I went to Stanford Fronta graduate. I don't know why ever left the bay area every time I fly in I go, this is why I should be right back here. And this is actually my second time coming to the KOMO club. So thank you for having me back. Thank you so much and just wanted to read a few things at the Commonwealth club. You know, they want me to take responsibility for the program as your moderator today. So please let me start by welcoming you all to the Commonwealth club. And I want it to just also say as our special guest here just found out that her new book, finding my voice my journey to the west wing and the path forward is on the New York Times best seller lists. Barack Obama's rise in American politics. Valerie Jarrett was by his side and his most trusted aide and advisor in finding my voice. She opens up about the challenges of navigating different conceptions of race and identity and America the zigzags of her career path as she quit her job as a lawyer and took a leap of faith moving into public service, all while being a single mother raising her daughter, Laura, of course, the book would be incomplete without the hilarious, tragic and inspiring antidotes from her time on the campaign trail, and in the White House with the Obama family as the longest serving senior adviser in the Obama administration administration overseeing the offices of public engagement and intergovernmental affairs as well as Charing the White House counsel on women and girls, she leaves behind a legacy of champing equality and opportunity for all. Americans in her decades of public service. We are so grateful to have her with us today. And so, ladies and gentlemen of the Commonwealth club. Please give her another warm. Welcome. Thank you. Thank you. So again, welcome. And thank you so much for being here. And I was just telling can I call you. I wish you, okay? I was just telling my friend. Valerie here. I am. So glad you wrote this book, it was very inspiring to read. And in fact, I'm just your work in the mayor's office, your upbringing, your family, all of these different dynamics. I just could really relate. But I specially was so emotional when I read the section where you talked about putting putting putting my grandmother was my grandmother, the matriarch of our family. Yes. And I was raised by my grandmother. And I just thought ma'am, we all need to put it in our lives. Everybody needs pudding. She say they we have a common bond because we have a common enemy your mother. And in fact, when I was very young when I was about this says something about both my mother and put in when I was about six I decided to run away from home. How many of you run away from home? Right. So I was packing my bags very methodically. And my mother comes in my bedroom. And she goes, let me help you. She really gonna let me go. And she's a here. Don't forget you under shirts. I remember like it was yesterday pack. My bag walked around the corner to put house, and she gave me Ritz crackers and cheese that was my favorite snack. And I sat there for about two hours and then suddenly out of nowhere. My mother appeared. I Mike how did she know where I was. And she just grabbed me quietly by the hand and walk me home. And I was relieved because I hadn't actually thought she let me out the door. But if I had to go somewhere, I went to puddings, and she was really the anchor of our family if you were running late from work drop, your kids at putting if someone's sick put them there, and she always had a pot of soup and gingerbread waiting and unconditional love and spoiled us all Rodman left it to our parents to disciplines that amazing. And I love that story in the book, including year, a story about being born and raised in Iran and spending a year living in London and tell us a little bit about as a young child and those experiences and just your travels back to the United States and the big difference in in the shock that and the challenges that you face. Yeah. It was a bit of a culture shock to me. So when my my father was a physician, and when he was finished his residency he joined the army and after two years when he was. Leaving the army. He was looking for a job, and this is in the mid fifties. I'll date myself, and he couldn't find a job at a major teaching institutions to do research. He was a pathologist geneticist hematologist and at a price at a salary comparable to his white counterparts. And so he and my mom who were really adventuresome spirit start looking for opportunities outside of the United States. And he wrote about a position starting a new hospital in Toronto Ron, and they asked him to be the chairman of the department of pathology, and so against the wishes of their family who you're going where and whereas I country, and do, you know anything about it? You know, anything about the government or the people or the culture, and no we didn't know anything at all laid in there anything at all. But it was a place that was going to give a black doctor from the United States and opportunity better than he could find right here at home. And so off they went, and you're so later, I was born I was a second baby. Born in the know Mazi hospital. I would say they practice on some other portal. I. Got that out of the way all the kinks out of the system. And then we lived there. I was five and from there. My father had done research in Iran that caught the eye of a professor at the golden labs at university. College of London in offered him one year position there to go and continuous research, and from there he was giving a speech in the dean at the university of Chicago medical center was at some international conference and heard him speak and offered a job tenure track position at the university of Chicago, and so one of the early lessons. My father always said to me was look sometimes the shortest distance to where you wanna go is the longest way around and you have to be willing to look at life as an adventure. And if he had just stay then he would never have had this opportunity to be the first African American tenured in the department of biological sciences at U of C, but when we return to the United States, I'm five six and for my parents, it was a celebration to go back home, and my mom moved in the neighborhood where her mother and sister extended family lived, and my father was from. Washington but Chicago's where he'd done his residency. And it's so familiar to them and totally foreign to me and fact when we landed the time I'd been to the United States that I could remember the first time three or four, and we were very fancy hotel right here in San Francisco on our way to Chicago fine from Iran, and we're sitting around the dynamo table. And I stay say an very loud stage whisper is it okay to drink the water in this hotel. The server was looking at me like what are you talking about? But in Iran, you you had to be very careful about what you drank what you aid the diseases that you could contract there could be fatal. And that's what I was used to say plop down in Chicago in a public school in a predominantly black public school. Now, I had a British accent. I spoke Farsi French and English often in the same sentence. Because we live in a hospital compound with physicians from all over the world, and I've learned to play with kids, and we didn't even have to have language as a barrier kids are kids, and we just played together. But here I am a public school. It's two grades. I'm fair skin freckles red hair, and I used to get beat up every day for a whole variety of reasons, and my younger cousin who is ten pounds lighter and six months younger would come to my rescue because she had two older siblings. So she was used to fighting and doing it successfully. But it was a culture shock from an I lost that British accent. By the end of week one. I stopped speaking Farsi immediately because I didn't want anybody. Nobody heard of Iran back then we had far better diplomatic relations with the country than we have today. But no one in my community school had any idea where Iran was and I just wanted to be like all the other kids. So it was hard for me in the beginning. But you know, what I just in? That was part of what my parents wanted to give me, and it was such a gift is that they had taken me over the color barrier. As I call it having been born in a country where nobody looked at my father has a black doctor. They looked at him as an American doctor, and and so his confidence grew and so when he returned to the United States, he thought the sky. Is a limit in terms of what he could do. My mother always the pessimists like sky might be the limit. But you better prepare for the worst. And so they raised me with that kind of combined set of of perspective, but it was a gift a real gift. But they, but your mom would also say it'll all be fine. Whatever went wrong, she say, she prepare you for going wrong. And then when it did she never said, I told you so, but she did say, you'll be just fine. And part of what she was trying to teach me was the importance of resilience and let you just have to keep key bat it, and she'd say you have to work twice as hard and she never finished that sentence. But you say just work twice as hard. And you know, if luck falls your way, then can eventually achieve what you want to achieve. But you are also what you described in the book shy painfully shy and quiet and sometimes of fray to speak up. I believe that will never spoke up. I. So I go to law school for reasons. I cannot fully explain to you other than my mother told me if I didn't go and get an advanced degree both of my parents, really valued education. My mother had a masters in education. My father's I mentioned as a physician and says, she said, you'll be selling girdles in the basement of Marshall feels if you go who wants to do that. So I kind of worked my way to law school, but I got called on the first day law school and class twice two different classes, criminal law and property. I still remember it and both times it makes me start to sweat just thinking about it. I I just went blank, and I I really could not do public speaking. I was very shy. And I had to work my way to like now, I love it. I love country such a natural to I was not an back, then which is another lesson is that you can get good good at things. You don't think you're good at if you just do them enough. And I got kind of suckered into it. I got promoted when I worked for mayor Daley. And I'm so glad to meet your deputy chief of staff because I used to be deputy chief of staff and seeing her just brought back all these memories. But mayor Daley, maybe the Commissioner, planning and development, my friend Kelly doubles here with me who worked with me there. Nobody told me you had to make speeches Commissioner planning and development. And in fact, and I met your press person. I tried to fire..

"Now, why did you name your book the torture machine? Well, thank you, Amy and one it's a pleasure to be back with you. I named it the torture machine for two different, but related reasons first of all is rather obvious on the cover the torture machine. That was the electric shock box that the notorious commander, Jon Burge and his men used on many African American suspects over that twenty year period that you just mentioned, but also the torture machine refers to Chicago's machine the notorious political machine often known as the Daley machine and the democratic machine here in the city, which not only countenance this torture, covered it up, but also was involved at the highest levels of the police department, and yes, the state's attorney's office when Richard m Daley was the state's attorney of Cook County were involved in this conspiracy this scandal. Oh that has gone on for so many decades in this city. Well, Flint I congratulate you on the book is really a riveting account. It's almost forensic analysis of decades of collusion between judges politicians prosecutors and the police to basically engage in systemic human rights violation. But you start the book with an incident that for many young people today Matt even part of history, but it's it's not often covered history. And you make the you make the statement that the killing of Fred Hampton, and Mark Clark really was a seminal moment in the development of Chicago in the modern history of Chicago. And I'm wondering if you could I. Give us a sense of why you believe that. So and then we when we're going to do a clip of documentary on from the weather underground about the about that the house where where Fred Hampton was killed. Yes. On December fourth nineteen sixty-nine fourteen. Chicago police officers working under the control of the state's attorney of Cook County at that time Edward Hanrahan rated a west side apartment where Black Panthers were sleeping and one of those Black Panthers was the chairman of the Black Panther party. Fred Hampton, charismatic young leader who was targeted not only by the police. But by it turns out, the FBI and that raid, which was covered up was claimed to be at first shootout was later shown to be total shoot in. And then over the years as we and others were able to litigate case in federal court. We were able to show not only that this was a vicious racist attack on the Panthers in its leadership where two men were killed and many others wounded. But it was part and parcel of the FBI's Cohen tell pro program the counterintelligence program devised and implemented by j GRA Hoover over the years, which in the late sixties targeted the Black Panther party. And specifically of Fred Hampton in Chicago. And in fact, that the raid on the apartment was part of this Cohen, tell pro program, and of course, you make the point in your book that that was the beginning of the resistance masters of the black community that eventually led to the election of Harold Washington as the first black mayor of Chicago, but I wanna turn to the clip from the documentary. The weather underground about the murder of Black Panther. Fred Hampton, fifty years ago on December fourth nineteen sixty-nine this clip begins with Fred Hampton..

"And Courtney hall. So I want to know how you all decided to become reporters and enter this. I always say crazy ever changing fun delightful. You can choose your own adjective profession, Heather why don't we start with you? Well, I grew up in Edgewater, and I read the sun times and the Tribune every day with my dad, and I love to write. And somehow I got it in my head when I was really really young that I wanted to cover city hall. So you've always been political always been a political junkie. Now. I assumed mayor Richard m Daley would still be mayor by the time. A lot of people didn't quite make it as quickly as as as history would have it. So it's my dream job. I love it every day. It's the greatest city in the world. I covered politics in Oakland, California, where I covered Jerry Brown when he was mayor of Oakland, and it's pretty crazy there. But it's you know, it's nothing like it is here in Chicago. What's the most fun aspect of covering city hall? What's the funnest part of your job? I think the the sense that what you write has a chance to really short of shape policy, and that policy really will determine whether people know what they're getting for their tax dollars and understand how they're being governed. That's a lot of responsibility. And I feel it sort of on my shoulders every day. But, you know, the idea that what I could help people better understand what politicians and officials are doing in their name, a really awesome important responsibility to have his there anybody at city hall that surprise you as far as maybe thought they would be difficult to cover you. Whether it's an alderman or a city worker somebody where the or even the mayor if you thought, but there there there. More humid and kind of more delightful than you thought they might be. So I think you know, Rahm Emanuel has sort of a persona that he spent a lot of years crafting sort of a tough as nails guy. But I appreciate how deeply wonky here. Yes. Like he is a guy who can get in just the nitty gritty details of like street, cleaning or streetlight maintenance. I mean, every once in a while you get the sense that occurs to him that he used to work ten feet away from the resolute desk in the White House. And now, he's being quizzed by a bunch of pack of of ugly reporters about, you know, potholes and stuff like that. But he really he really loves governing, and he really loves policy, and he really loves that back and forth with reporters. And and that's and that's a lot of fun. That's very cool. I love your stories. We're gonna talk more about a year passed and the daily line. I came from DNA info. And we'll talk about that. After. The news. But Greg how did you decide to become a reporter? So I always liked writing from the time. I was a kid. And so when I went to college at UIC just started working for the college newspaper because I had opinions. And I wanted everyone to know how beautiful and intelligent. My opinions were now. Right. They were right. But mostly a beautiful and intelligent. They were. So I ended up I ended up wanting to try journalism for a little bit. And somebody told me that that you could file a records request and a government give me some paperwork on whatever on your spending on this give me the paperwork, and they have to and then you can find things out that they don't want you to know. And I realized after I did some stories that made the university mad that it was a lot of fun to piss people off. Really imagine not just to do it like to be a jerk. But to find something out like at the time, he was laying people off and raising tuition, and then to find out the ways in which they were wasting money to benefit themselves versus educating students was important, but also fun, and I carry that with me still today, did you ever anger someone who came back to you and said, all right. You know, what I get mad at first, but you did the right thing. And hey, buddy. Let's go have a coffee. You'd be amazed. How often people more often than not people get it people really do. And I've been doing investigative stories since I was in college. I mean, I've I've done stories that ended up on the front page around TV, and and people will get mad and often they'll puff. But in general, people do know what what's right and what's wrong. And they also know that they have to pretend to be mad or they have to be mad because there's a natural inclination would be mad, but people generally get it. It's sort of like a ballet or pro wrestling where people understand there are steps, and you are on your side. And I am on my side. And at some point, we'll we'll be able to laugh about it. Very true more often than that. Anyway, according to what made you decide to become reporter. We see you every day. Nc LTV. We see on the morning news on WGN TV. Did you decide to become a reporter? You know, what I had a totally different career path after graduating from college. I was working at the World Bank in DC. I was kind of in that period. Where like I didn't know what I wanted to do with my life. But I was in college in DC during September eleventh, and I could see the Pentagon on fire from where I was living. And it was such a powerful scary moment. Did it always stuck out in my mind because our campus was of course on lockdown and all we could do is watch TV news. Was it that, you know? So we were just like the hungry for information. We had it on all day. You know, everybody was terrified about what was happening. So that moment always stuck out in my mind as like just kind of how. You know, I was like in the palm of their hands like waiting for information from these anchors and reporters who were giving us very vital information. So I it stuck on my mind. How important that job was? And I developed a lot of respect for journalists specifically TV journalists in that moment. So it but it didn't click right then. And there I continued on with my marketing degree but afterwards I decided when I'm kind of like thinking about what to do. I I kind of went back to that to that moment and said, you know, that's a really important. Vital, john. And I want to check it out and see what it takes to do. It was it was it. Hard was harder easy to come back. Home digital was it was it hard to leave DC and come back to Chicago. Or was it great because you were coming back home. You know, I think at that point. I was done with DC. I love DC consider it a second home. But you know, you kinda live out those like post college years like. Right. And then like, okay. Well, this is really is over the party really is over. So everybody was kind of going in their directions for careers, whether it's moving to New York or or back home. So I think it was time for me to move back to Chicago. And that's when I went to Miguel. That's when I decided 'cause I knew nothing about reporting a literally. So where do you start? Yeah.

"Type of democrat mindset that drives away residents and businesses. Also worth noting at this point, Bill Daley. The latest member of the daily families seeking to be mayor of Chicago. He's the son of former mayor, Richard J Daley brother, a former mayor Richard m Daley now Bill Daley because apparently this is just a family property. They pass around who gets to be mayor of Chicago. But I'm not sure the people of Chicago even have a problem with this point. He's now pushing for a commuter tax on the people who live in the suburbs. So that they can pitch in for the massive billion dollar plus pension crisis that they did nothing to create you wanna drive through our city. We're going to charge. A toll starts to sound like the cartels, doesn't it? In the last few years. We've watched the cartels go from moving marijuana to moving cocaine to moving heroin to now they've taken over farms are even better they just charge a toll. You wanna you wanna traffic? You wanna be wanna bring avocados up to the Tex Mex restaurants in America the heaven insatiable appetite for him. Were you not passing through this road route here until you give us hundred dollars hundred dollars a Trump, by the way, we're not gonna tell you when the toll will be collected. So that you can avoid us. We're going to put a machine gun in your face. We'll have to kill a few of you. So that you know that we will kill you. And you'll just need to give your drivers extra cash. And when we show up he'll hand it to us. So eventually, they moved into becoming coyotes because it turned out the most valuable resource, they could move north was human beings. That's what they do.

I guess it just took advice a prize today. Yeah. Just happened earlier today, and it was just just started crossing liar. But I thought the captain into Neil. I thought they were divorced. I was surprised to hear you say that she died at aside. He died while she was at xactly. So while they divorce bay still maintained a relationship. Maintained a financial relationship. Financial? Yes. The downloads tonight and tomorrow for captain Antonio tunes and not it's going to be a nice day for her.

He is not standing for re-election. Right. Correct. So this is a big story this afternoon and broke that he has been arrested for domestic assault or a domestic battery was taken into custody being questioned about what supposedly happened on New Year's Eve at his home. Police say it involved his wife, so the charges are pending at this point. We don't end the police spokesman Anthony, Google Yami said that they are there is a consideration as to whether this would be criminal charges if this would be a misdemeanor or felony charges. That's that's what they haven't decided must be a long way from New Year's Eve two today waiting for that news to break for him. Well, they said right after the fight that he took off from the house, and they they tracked him down today at the ward office in he they said he came peacefully became an alderman in Ninety-three took over to Garcia. I think and Richard m Daley appointed him he's been there since not standing for election here in twenty nine thousand though, my understanding correct urge you mentioned the Mitt Romney is already declared that he is running for president. Is that what it hurt or? No, no, no, no, no. I don't think. So what else? Not yet. You can you give me conjecture? Who is going to support in two thousand twenty. So he had that op Ed piece in the post and said that the president's conduct is questionable. That hasn't been that great in that not exactly his words, but you get the draft. But he said, you know, he does agree with some of the policies, and he was asked if he regretted accepting the president's endorsement, and he said, hey, the president endorse me I didn't endorse him. And I haven't decided who I'm going to endorse in twenty twenty. Now, the president did put out a couple tweets about this. I'm not going to this one of my New Year's resolutions to the president's tweets shiny object. However, the president did say today as he emerged from the situation room. I think he's gonna end up being a team player. I think he agrees with many of the things that we've done in many of the things that we have in mind there. We'll see what happens our friend. Bob Costantini, must work. Twenty four seven is still at the White House. We'll talk a little bit later on this hour. He was not in the situation room. They decided to move the meeting down to the situation room for optics. But that did not invite the press in. So I'm not sure what they accomplished in the situation. Room. But because it was about border security. That's fine. So we'll cover that a little bit later on. I learned today that the forty first words in the nineteenth Ward's.
