"From President Trump last night, one of them an insult. That's how Congress woman sees the president's pardon of a former Chicago man convicted in a massive Medicaid. And Medicare fraud scheme. Philip as forms was called the king of Medicaid fraud, convicted and sentenced to 20 years for what federal prosecutors called the largest criminal health care fraud case ever brought $1.3 billion over a period of more than a decade.

Hopes dimming for another round of stimulus checks in 2020
"Talk about stimulus checks and also the economic relief package being considered by Congress. Now, one of the bills we had heard most recently did not include stimulus checks to go out. Now I'm just seeing this cross The Washington Post White House, pushing Senate GOP to include stimulus checks in that relief package. Let's find out the status of that first, and I know congresswoman Jan Schakowsky. Gracious enough to come on the show to talk about this male issue that some people are dealing with, But I just wanted to begin with that because I saw that cross and I know that's on a lot of people's minds. Thanks first of all for coming on the show. Thanks for having me on the show. This is the most important question I think right now is what are we going to do to relieve the terrible suffering the unnecessary suffering of so many people? I am All in for a they caught a stimulus check. I'm talking about it as a survival track. People are just simply running out of money. And without that, we can, you know, see people who have foreclosures and all kinds of disaster, including that even being able To put enough food on the table. As it is one out of four American Children is what is called food insecure about what that means in real English is they don't know where their next meal is going to come from Andre. That's just, you know, in the richest country in the world unacceptable, so I have been pushing very hard. Or this the cat to come to people's doors. In addition, though, it does seem to the the release package does seem to include Um, unemployment insurance money now, the day after Christmas. About half a million Illinois ins and 6.4 Million Americans will run out of unemployment checks. I mean, that kid, they will run out of money. And so what has been proposed instead of the last time when it was fixed out 6 $600 a week that would come to families. It looks like we may be able to get $300 a week to families, which is certainly better than that. Nothing but not a replacement. Or the individual checks that most people can take Take advantage of you talking about that federal boost, So it was 600 this time around. It might be 300 that extra on top of the unemployment that the state offers. No. Yes, That's right. Uh huh. Exactly. So we'll see. But you know, unemployment is is running out. And so you know, that may be the only money people are are getting and that's like I'm so much in favor of that of that. What did I say? Not not a stimulus tax, but a survival check. No, And that's that's a fair point. Because you know, some people only received the 1200 bucks and have had difficulties getting unemployment. You've We've had people call into the show, and so they still can't get through and lots of problems there. So That's not enough to just make survival. It's not enough as you point out, so I hope that there is some movement there. Do you believe right now, From what you know, in Congress that there will be a stimulus check like the $1200.1 in some amount That is also coming our way again. You know, the Republicans don't all thing to be on the same page. Mitch McConnell was not talking about a attack. The White House is the president is I'm hoping at the end of the day and that end of the day. I think it's not going to come until next week. It doesn't look like we're gonna arise. That compromise. Um, this week a little worse. Certainly. You know, the Democrats were certainly ready to get it to get it done to get some help on the way. Um, So I'm hoping that the president will prevail issues really pushing for that, and that will see that survival check. Can.

Munich can steal the show at the german city of frankfurt shines on its own as a modern city that also offers a great look. Today's germany devastated in world war two bombings and rebuilt with a new design. Today it's a gleaming city of towering skyscrapers and powerful straddling the mine river and the mine river is find riverside park lined with museums and taverns that are popular for their apple. Wine to learn more. We're joined in our studio by two german guys. Caroliina marburg and barbara ship kofsky barbara and carolina. Thanks for joining us. Thank you having us. Currently know when people think frankfurt in germany. What do they think. What's the reputation of frankfurt. The reputation is of. I think in english it's referred to as banquet but we more often call it mine. Hatton mind being the river that runs through it and mine. Hatton the reference to manhattan so skyscrapers banks and all that which however implies a certain lack of soul and therefore a lot of germans like well frankford so it's it seems to be just bank money trade however if you actually get to know it. Compared to at first sight frankford is a love at second side because it is it has a lot of local. Beauty has a lot of local charm. But it's something you need to discover. Yeah and it does have a shiny skyline. It's a city of skyscrapers. I think mine. Hutton is a good name because in germany. There's nothing so close to new york as frankfurt and it's a beautiful sky and they take care of how it is assembled so even though it keeps growing it's nicely assembled. There's a pedestrian bridge across the mine. River the irony. The irony is energy and when you stand in the iron bridge. You've got these beautiful parks on both sides of the mine river and then you've got this skyline and it just feels like a kind of a german new york. It's actually the recommendation for some a night is to go to the other side of the mine river and sit down on the green get. Maybe a fish sooner and napa valley and then marvel at. That's gallon i you know. Most americans they go to to old stuff. I love to see modern skylines also. I like modern architecture. London is great for that and in germany. You wouldn't find that in munich that's for sure to find it in frankfurt and the the big skyscraper that's open for the tourist as i understand is the tower named after the river and it's fifty four floors tall six hundred and fifty feet up there and the terrace on top is just an amazing view at the city. Now barbara one. We're thinking about frankfurt. It also has obviously a lot of history. And i know there was a big struggle in the nineteenth century when germany was being united. There's a small states that spoke german and there was prussia and there was and those were of the leading contenders to be the force behind which germany was united but apart from prussia and bavaria. You had a bunch of little states than looked to frankfurt talk about frankfurt in eighteen. Forty eight and how that was part of this german unification while you have in frankfurt. The famous poet skier it used to be an actual protestant church and if somebody gets the german medal of honor. I'm gonna macos going to give that to that person. In that church it goes back to that assembly in eighteen forty eight. The first national assembly democrats were getting together and saying this is what we want. We don't want the monarchy. Let's be democratic country so it was sort of the home of the german Feeling for democracy rather than autocracy. Yeah you mentioned pulse church. i think. The englishman repulsed. And that's a museum for that today. Essentially can go and see paintings and etchings that period. Our german tour guides to frankfurt on travel.

Supreme Court allows census count to end early
"India, Donald Well, this is the last day for people to be counted in the 2020 census and local on the local Congress, Woman says. If you haven't filled out the form, there is still time the U. S. Supreme Court ruled the Trump Administration can halt the census count early tonight in order to meet its deadline for a full census report next year. But Democratic Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky thinks the president just doesn't want a full count, and it's not about deadlines. I think what the president is thinking. Oh, sure, in those states that have lots of Immigrants, if especially if they dare to welcome them into their communities or people of color are low income communities. They don't vote Republicans. So why should we make it easier for them to be counted? Because Schakowsky says it's in the Constitution and census numbers determine how many congressional representatives an area has and how much federal aid it can get, so it's vital to be counted.

Poland’s Presidential Election Too Close to Call
"The second round of presidential elections has come to a close in Poland as me. Nicholson report's exit polls show the race is still too close to call. According to the exit poll, incumbent Andre Duda has secured 50.4% of the vote, while his rival Rafay Trickovski has come in less than 1% point below him at 49.6%. With a 2% margin of error is currently too close to call the winner of an election campaign, which proved divisive on almost every issue. Duda, who's backed by Poland's right wing government, led a campaign heavily dominated by homophobia rhetoric.

"Foreseeing the, the president to make a comment about the record number of women. And we took over cheering for a while. Would you know didn't want to settle down until we made a clear? Yes, we are here, and we did it, so they're absolutely. You know, mean the fact that I every year I have a, my ultimate women's power launch is always big, but three thousand foodie people showed up this year to hear Nancy Pelosi and to celebrate each other. That's the great thing about that, that that event, but the numbers of, of women and numbers, by the way are important. I, I wanna say to them if the only thing that you do is show up that's really important, because, you know, look at the contrast between how many people showed up for the inauguration versus the number of people who showed up at the women's March the, the next day numbers numbers matter. And if that's your first step is just to go to a meeting or to go to rally or to go to town hall. All meeting with you. You don't have to be the one this time that asked the question. But maybe next time you'll want to, to to, you know, put pull it together and stand up and ask that question. It's exhilarating, it's exhilarating to exert to exert power. And that's that is the other thing you were talking about friendship and the women that are running, and I, I wanna say to Hillary Clinton that, in many ways she did break the glass ceiling because, you know, there's very little comment really how unusual it is that so many women are running for president of the United States of America. It's kind of. Well, yeah, of course. And so she did that she, she made that something that women do now. And, and yes, they are we, we a number of us are also working to get pledges sign that say that, you know. During the campaigns that people won't really go after trying to tear each other to shreds in that after a nominee is chosen that all of the candidates were that nominee, which I think is, is, is important. But I do think that the that women are expressing solidarity more and more visibly. And I think men are scared to death on women. I love that. Love it. I love it and related to that solidarity Jan, when, you know, they're obviously, you mentioned earlier the issue, reproductive rights and legalized abortion. But I wonder if you could talk from your vantage point in congress, and otherwise about the key issues that you think we ought to focus on is women, when we're starting to organize or attend town halls or getting involved with campaigns. Well, we surely have to continue to fight to protect our to protect reproductive rights. They have the, the, the Republicans. Have chosen that as a as a battleground. And, and by the way, I mean, certainly not just a political issue, but I do think that we can win the Senate on that on that issue. I think Susan Collins for voting for Brad Kavanagh. That is disqualifier. She voted for someone who was not only so intensely disrespectful of a woman in that in, in those public hearings. But clearly has the wrong view on on women's rights up and down the on everything. I think the fact that Doug Jones in Alabama in Alabama is pro choice is something that can carry him to, to victory. And I think that we can win the United States Senate on that on that issue the that they're anti-woman workplace us. And, you know, just life. Balance issues are so incredibly important. This is a time when we have to transform the workplace into a woman, family friendly place..

"This is a new era right now where women are really feeling power. Women are telling their stores, the metoo movement, I was with events where last night, the apology was she at women and children. First. You know did a beautiful beautiful presentation about the apology. She wrote per father, who's long-on when he might have said that would satisfy and the abuse. So I mean, all of these things are converging at this at this moment right now and be flapped it in every single arena. We're winning are saying, no it's our place now and we're going to be making decisions related to that, there's a there are lessons to be learned in shared with women who are just now getting involved. And I know Kellyanne Sophie have talked about this. And we wondered if you could share some of that, you know, people are telling their stories and being mobilized. But how do you think they ought to go about it? What are the key sort of activities that you feel? We ought to engage in. As we work over these next year and a half, I think it would be smart to read your book. Rebecca. Sorry, you know, plans and strategies but it's about knowing it starts with knowing your power and having a sense of sisterhood and not being alone. And that, that we can join together to make real real change right now in, in our country, all the evidence is, is there. Join a group you don't have to make up a group. You can join an indivisible group. You can join one of the, the many women's organizations, you can get involved in the, the big ones like Planned Parenthood or something in your neighborhood, that it that is coming together because, you know, we, we want our schools to be better. And you know, on, on a local level, I've supported a number of candidates now young women who have run for school board. And don't be mistaken. These are not unimportant offices. The idea of curricula are decided at a school board level. What are your kids actually going to be taught? Are they going to hear about the seventy two year fight for women for, for women getting the vote are, are they going to be able to read, so journals amazing speech, about a black woman, and started as a slave? And, and ain't she a woman became a an author run. A women's rights advocate, knowing our history. You know, his story history has been largely a history of, of men and the men that have have written it. But it's now time for us to feel our own individual power our own collective power to join something to be involved. And nothing could be more important as far as I'm concerned being involved in this upcoming twenty twenty election. You know, we cannot any longer tolerate a, a on the scientist. That's just one of maybe one hundred things you could say about this president, you know, racist traitor. You know, the horrible things that he's doing. This is a time then we have to demonstrate women power and get him out of office. Yeah. I'm really struck as you're talking about sisterhood in collective power. You know you for a long time. Have have celebrated that with your annual ultimate women's power lunch, a bringing lots of women together, but I feel like we're we're almost in a new time and I don't know if you're seeing this in congress as well, but, you know, the, the women running for president, for instance are all seeming to sort of support each other and not make it hacks on each other. It seems like a lot of the women in congress are friends that are showing that friendship, and, you know, your most recent Lynch, you had this amazing story about your history, with congresswoman I on impressively and the, the friendship that you now have do you sense that, too, is there is there more of a sisterhood is it just because of larger numbers that we're seeing that more? We definitely are flexing, our muscle in all kinds of fun ways. The fact that we wore white, for example, who the state of the union address..

No one. Loves this country, more than people understand the lack of the freedoms that we have an experienced the kinds of things that she experienced. You know, it's striking to me. You know, I feel I'm a first generation American one of the reasons I feel so strongly about this country is I know what it meant to my father and his family to find refuge here and find a life and be able to build a life in. It's one of the things that makes me put my hand over my heart. And when the national anthem is played because means something to me. And so, yeah, it's painful, it's painful to see her depicted as she's been. No. And I put out a tweet that I stand with her that what the president is doing absolutely wrong. Top of the Democratic Party broadly. We have a presidential race going on now. And with more candidates than you could fit in this room and growing there is. This concern that's been expressed. I don't particularly share it. But that. That you know, that this will be such a tube relative process that at the end of the day the party will be divided in its in its in the general election against Trump. First of all, what do you see in these candidates? You haven't endorsed a candidate? Now, do you intend to endorse a candidate? Oh, I don't know down the road. Maybe. But certainly not not right now. I what I stand when I talked to people that the number one criteria who's going to be Donald Trump. Now people will have different opinions on. I wonder what I always wonder about that. Because I know people are saying that I'm sure it's meaningful. But it's also true that people tend to rationalize their choice. So if they choose a candidate like the people who are supporting Bernie Sanders believe he's the guy who can beat Donald Trump, the people who support Biden believe he's the guy who can support down. Can be Trump people reporting, comma, Harris may believe she's the person who can beat down there. Pete mayor Pierre south bend, Indiana. Yes. Yes.

You know, maybe even the the Chicago may all election that new means change a breath of fresh air. But I think in addition he's he's been almost flawless. I think when he's been questioned about why he's why he's running his vision for America. He's very very good. He's very talented friend of mine. I mean, I know him. Well, I I would say to him as I said everyone else the thing about this process is when the when you raise the bar for yourself by performing well, you have to clear the higher bar and so- tests will come down the line. And it'll be interesting to see how he contends with that one of the tests, of course, is building national campaign, which is no small, no small matter. But let me ask you on this on this issue of age. Do you you you talk a lot about speaker Pelosi who's been a phenomenon really, you know, there was a lot of question as she was an issue in the campaign, which she get reelected..

But now, I wholeheartedly supporting him for governor how how different was twenty years ago when you arrived in the congress four a woman in congress. Well, let me tell you on the way and the the prime because the the other candidate there were there were three of us in the dollar Howard Carroll who had been a state Senator for for twenty years something like that. And was considered a machine candidate? We none of us differed much really on the issues, but I remember going to the plumbers hall and the president at the time of the plumbers literally patted me on the head and said, it just wasn't my turn. And he was supporting Howie 'cause how he had paid his news. And you know, it was fair. And I just as pleasantly as I could said, well, let's talk after the primary, and of course, we did. And he did. And you know, I had the labor support in that in that race. Yeah. You get to the house. How different was was was it then? Well, of course, there were far fewer women. But there were some powerful women Nancy Pelosi was there those just about when she was moving up in pretty soon. She was going to be elected the. The the whip verse the whip, right and. I became very close to and you know, made sure I did hang out with the the the really wonderful woman who had been there for for for a long time. But it certainly was extremely male dominated.

"On talk radio five sixty so kind of walking back to this ObamaCare thing. Again, the deal is and I just had a conversation just to be clear. So the Republicans in the new Trump tax plan they did away with the penalty for not buying ObamaCare. And that goes into effect in two thousand nineteen. So the people who are signing up for a baba care less right now. Well, actually, the deadlines passed, but the people that were just signing up for ObamaCare. This is four twenty nineteen. And that's when this would go into effect. So in other words, if you don't have it in twenty nine thousand nine you won't get penalized. So that a judge comes along after we're off the air on Friday and says all right? You know, what I've kind of look at it this whole thing and were throwing out ObamaCare altogether because without that tax penalty. This whole plan doesn't work as promised. So now, we're back to the drawing board and Trump is tweeting about that saying, okay? This is the perfect opportunity, and I would agree. This is the perfect opportunity. So the Democrats they don't want anything to do with it. They don't want to have any meeting of the minds with Donald Trump on how to build a better, quote, unquote, ObamaCare. They don't wanna talk about that. Instead this is their opportunity to go where they wanted to go from the beginning. And I'm reading all these Democrats in the news this morning saying they want universal healthcare. No surprise to us. Sherri? What year? Do you think? This was Jan Schakowsky. She's a congresswoman from northern Illinois. And she was at this conference. And she's talking to all these people about, you know, here's the deal. The goal is not ObamaCare. The goal is to break. The insurance companies. We're going to break the insurance companies are working to bring about universal healthcare because that's what we really want to do. So this whole thing about ObamaCare that was just a ruse for the ultimate the ultra leftist because they want universal healthcare. They want government run top to bottom universal healthcare.

"Representive schakowsky if everything that is sort of alleged is true well first of all why would he lie about it if there was nothing wrong with such a meeting and it is not nothing often the cover up is a bigger problem than than the the actual but i do think it is problematic if this administration let's remember that his son in law also supposedly working on setting up this back channel that the goal here was to work closely with the russians the russians who in the meantime had been interfering with our elections that is known that is just sure and so the whole thing is very corrupt very slimy and very appropriate and he had obviously felt a reason to just lie about it to the congress he was not willing to discuss and to this very day is denying that there was anything involved more than this casual on ranged meeting for those of us that have never served in congress and are not sort of aware of of how things work you know i'm one of those people have never served in congress i try to follow things but explained this part of it to me when i read the transcript of eric prince testifying in front of the intelligence committee and there were some reductions but largely everything got put on the record i wonder why the democrats on the committee didn't pursue any line of questioning about the fact that you have this american citizen eric prince who was a former navy seal a longtime cia contractor who was a green badger he could walk around the cia and pitch them projects.
