"Weeks ago it was the chair of the congressional black caucus joyce beatty arrested for protesting voting rights in the senate. Hart building a week ago. With georgia congressman hank johnson and today it was texas congresswoman sheila jackson-lee arrested in the same place for the same reason. You can see her. Being handcuffed in white zip ties. She was later placed inside a police van. She later tweeted this photo of herself in handcuffs or caption quote. I will never stop fighting for voting rights. The time is now to move. The voting rights bill in the us senate forward enough is enough hashtag. Good trouble. The protests and resulting arrests are part of a summer of action on voting rights in the list of reasons to fight just keeps on growing. Today this was the headline in the atlanta journal-constitution georgia republicans take first step to fulton elections takeover. Fulton county is the largest county in the state one tenth of all georgians lift that live there. It's where atlanta is at voted overwhelmingly for joe biden also contains a sizeable proportion of the state's black voters. The paper obtained a letter showing that two dozen republican state senators support a performance review of the fulton county elections chief. They have the power to request this. Thanks to the restrictive voting bill. That georgia passed earlier this year. According to that bill state senate bill two oh to the state can replace any local election official with enough republican support. The chairman of the fulton county board of commissioners democrat is sounding the alarm saying this is blatant republican attempt to take control of the us senate from democrats and retain the governorship in two thousand twenty. Two quote it's been rhetoric until this point. This letter is the first official step in the process. We've got allies in the legislator. We've got the courts and the court of public opinion. The law as currently stands is on their side at the federal level. Democrats continue to do what they can to address exactly this sort of thing with efforts to pass the for. The people act currently stalled senate. Democrats are preparing to unveil a new voting rights bill as soon as this week. Several centers including raphael warnock. Amy klobuchar and joe manchin are huddled or all huddled inside leader. Chuck schumer's office yesterday to discuss the legislation and the momentum is building the new york times and nbc. News both report. The president biden will meet with speaker. Nancy pelosi and leader schumer tomorrow to voting rights legislation. The need for action could not be more pressing today. Texas state democrats who fled their state to block a restrictive voting. Bill testified before congress about the desperate need for federal action to block voter suppression efforts. At home this is a practical implication. That's going to disenfranchise hundreds and thousands of votes of texans. And that's why we here. We tried to work with our counterparts but every amendment that we present it was declined. Where where was that in committee. Yes sir and committee on the twenty three hours. There were amendments that were presented even during the regular session when we presented amendments. They were not always admitted. So we have tried. We've used every tool in our toolbox to collaborate with our colleagues. The only thing left is to come to congress and ask for federal intervention. Which is literally what they're doing joining us now. Senator alex padilla democratic senator from california former secretary of state of california who knows a lot about state voting rights. Senator good to see you. Thank you for being with us. What what the texas representative. We're saying there is exactly what they're doing. They literally left their state and went to make their case at the federal government. They said we can do what we can do. And we are willing to do it under pain of arrests. They are all threatened with arrest when they go back but they said we need the fed's get involved you and i've had this discussion before it can happen. But there are still some holdouts at the federal level with you allie. And you're absolutely right. So we we thank the texas. Legislators for their here was them in elevating not just the importance of these voter protections that we are trying to get past but to urge because twenty twenty two election is around the corner and it should not take another selma to get the conscience of the united states senate of course the house of representatives has already passed the for the people act on the president's desk between no he will sign and so Just want everybody to know. We are not giving up the fight. There's been a lot of focus on infrastructure lightly but voting rights continues to be a top priority. We hope to in detail a new proposal in in. maybe the next week. Talk to me about that. What do you do it interesting. That be a new proposal but we do have two proposals. They're already what. What do you do to break the logjam here. A with republicans but be with some people in the democratic party to have them say. Hey look we need to filibuster once and for all for things that are important. Voting rights right well You know we sort of pick up where we left off. We had a measure on the floor that only received fifty votes on emotion to proceed to begin discussion to begin the debates but frankly that was a measure that up until shortly before the vote did not have all fifty democrats. Well guess what we start with a united democratic caucus when you have not just myself and leader schommer but senator a mansion and saturday all in the room coalescing around eight proposal that starting from an even stronger position and so the people act as a model with the experience of not just california but especially california showing how all these measures actually work. They strengthen the integrity of our election and make it easier for people to participate. That's our democracy is supposed to be about. I think we gained momentum in either appealing to ten of our republican colleagues or short of that potentially reforming or eliminating the filibuster to senator i. I really wanted to talk to you on this topic because of your experience as the secretary of state there all sorts of things going on in this country making it harder for people to vote. Ballot-boxes voted hours. Things like that but president biden made the point. That one could organize around that. It's not what we should be doing in this country but you can figure that out what they're doing georgia you can't figure that out. This idea of removing an elections official so as to control the outcome of elections. There's no way to out organize that that that that is anti-democratic and that's time is of the essence. One could argue. Well i if it's that much of a violation of the spirit not the language of the federal voting rights. Check by the time we litigated. And it's appealed in all cream court. I'm capable those chances so again. Important tend to urgency with which we need to act and knowing that it has to and places like california colorado seventy so all. These reforms are proven reforms that By the way uphold the nineteen ninety three national voter registration act. It's that i referred to in that here. We had an atlanta a week and a half ago. Way is in federal statute. That government has not just an opportunity a responsibility to facilitate voter participation. That bet needs making you fees. You're eligible people to register to stay registered that'd be purged from the roles in options for how to cast their ballots. Senator good to see you. California senator alex padilla. We appreciate your time tonight. We'll be right back and that does it for us tonight. We'll see you again tomorrow. The rachel maddow show we did during on.

Welcome. First Call tonight out of New England. How are you, Tom? Well, I'll tell you you're talking about our future President. Well, if it's if it's your future president, you could have her. OK, go right ahead. I'm gonna tell you why it is that Everybody over 45 because of the right wing radio hates this woman. You know what, Tom? I mean, you know if if you want if you want to have a conversation, that's fine. If you listen to this program, did you listen to me last night? Talk about Marjorie Taylor Greene. Did you hear all the wonderful things I said about Marjorie Taylor Greene. Did you listen last night, Tom and no. Yes, I did. And you were right on that issue. But I'm saying that so on that issue, I'm right. One thing one thing that Trump can so So does that Put me in. Let me ask you is you've loved me in with right wing radio. My question to you is since you listened last night. Why what would kill? I did not put you on right wing radio. I says because of right wing radio. I didn't say you were right. Look, Greg Well, it sounded to me is if if you were saying that if you want to amend that remark, go right ahead. Yeah, Yeah, I wasn't mean I wasn't pointing at you. You must feel that your right wing but no, I don't at all I try to be. I am a guy who is, I admit I'm a conservative talk show host. But I encourage people like you and other points of you to join the conversation. But I'm not going to sit here and have my integrity intact by people who I think Listen to the show fairly regularly and know what this show is truly all about. I have an opinion on Alexandria, Ocasio Cortez. It difference from yours. I'll be happy to listen to what you have to say and tell me why you think she's going to be the president someday. But I'm not going to sit here and allow you to Itself. Me and my listeners. Go ahead, Tom. Okay, I'm not. I'm not even talking about I'm talking about other Groups like Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh again. Why don't you talk about the subject we're talking about here. Okay, I'm trying. I'm trying to The friend years. Drop woke up the young voters. Evan Alison, I'll just can't 35 in younger Loaded. Was a governor crack a lot of the fur Buyten because They held their nose because they love this woman just like that Last caller sack. They love this woman and come four years from now, like, just carve, girl says, like, you know, to be favored. Do me favor call Joe Scarborough call call all those other people and mentioned nightside on their programs. I'm sick of listening to you Try to mention every other media personality in America on my show. Come back next time with something of substance. Appreciate your call. Let's go. Next to shame is in Westwood. Hey, shame is next on nights I go right ahead. I didn't. Uh, I'll be honest. I'm gonna be most boring color of the night because for once, I think I'm closely more closely aligned than to you than your listeners. Um, my film. My feeling is I'm a younger guy. Probably young in the lot of you Listen is on 39, a staunch Democrat. And I think that She probably grossly exaggerated her way. I don't blame her for being scared, even if she wa so, uh, large margin away because they have that tunnel subway going toe Senate Hart building the Russell Senate building, but at the same time, I think that gross exaggeration. Is prevalent on both sides, and I agree with you that she is a Z dangerous as Marjorie Taylor Greene and Trying to rally up the supporters on her side by using hyperbole to express How? How In fear of her life, she woz to say that people are gonna assassinate like we're that close to assassinating people is a gross exaggeration. The situation those of us equally is dangerous is some conspiracy stare is Aires. Or or maybe not. I don't want to say that, you know, toe discard people that believe what Marjorie tell Greens. Uh, spot No. But Um, theories. Well, sure. I mean, anybody can have anybody could have there is but the point is those of us in my generation. And I'm a baby Boomer. We remember political assassinations. We remember I watched Um, I was in high school. I was a freshman sophomore in high school the day that President Kennedy was killed. I know what it felt like that weekend. I watched Lee Harvey Oswald, um, shot by Jack Ruby on live television. Um, I woke up in the middle of the night to learn that Robert F. Kennedy Jr had been assassinated by See Han Besar, a Sierra Inn in California that Dr King had been assassinated in Memphis, Tennessee. So when people start throwing those, those that word around that's pretty dangerous sort of language to be throwing around, and I think that at this time, it doesn't help this country and many in anyways, whether it's from the right or the left. My whole heartedly agree. I think that you can't use your platform. To, um, use hyperbole to rally up your troops. Tioga, get this kind of Momenta Mamore. You know, anger behind your platform. I think that that's the most dangerous thing to do. Like I remember days like, you know, I'm very interested in politics because of my father. And it was always I had an internship with Ted Kennedy back in the day..

There you go, so there's a little bit of liberty. Go on everybody's face this morning. I guess you could look at all kinds of directions and point fingers, and it's not going to do us much good anywhere we look That's for sure. And and But I do have to say at least in those protests. You're not talking about damage, physical damage being done. You're not talking about lives being put in danger in that case. But yeah, there stood nonetheless, There's hypocrisy there. Listen, A handful of Trump Administration officials are resigning from their position after a day of well after that insurrection yesterday, these these seen old associates they're stepping down lot of people now openly splitting with President Trump, including his former chief of staff and his special envoy. Northern Ireland, Mick Mulvaney, who submitted his resignation yesterday as a result of what was going on Mulvaney talking about it more on CNBC this morning. I can't see Can't do it. I can't stay. It's it's a nothing thing it doesn't affect the outcome doesn't affect the transition, but it's It's what I've got right and that's a position. I really enjoy doing. What you can't do it. You could also add to the resignations the deputy national security advisor Matt Pottenger, though he had been planning to leave for some time. There you go. My command your while reporting. Also resigning from their post are the first lady Melania Trump's chief of staff, Stephanie Grisham and White House social secretary and Regina out as well, they were. They were going to be going in a few days. That's right. They're just gonna take a little longer. But Kate just go and take their vacation in these early, But I have to say this again because we're seeing a lot of this and social media and everywhere that where people or blamed putting 100% What happened yesterday on Donald Trump. And I think you're being incredibly lazy. If you do that, and you're refusing really, Tomo to use your brain on that? Yeah, He plays a part here, but it no pardon. No point yesterday. Did I hear him? Say it. Now go to the capital and tear crap up. He never did He never. And that was not his intention. Of course. It was not his intention March on the Capitol. Yeah, He definitely encourage people to do that. But that's where it began began and and ended. Right there text are asking. This is a question for both of us at what point is violence warranted? At what point when you rise up, tied and done. Violence is warranted. If I'm trying to protect my own life for your loved one's life than violence is warranted. Yeah, that's what that's what. I don't know how to answer that clad. I'll let you know when we get there. None of that was warranted yesterday. Now there's nothing that productive ever comes from that yesterday. That's not how it's not. It's not. How it's done. Appreciate the passion, but that's not how it's done. What's your e mail again? What would you suggest us right here? You know, people ask my no. No. And no, There's not gonna be any any scenario where I'm going to condone tearing up. The public's property right there. The public house right there. The nation's house.

You blew it and democracy One don't know you start manipulating the second amendments to the First Amendment. You start messing with the Constitution. Just stick with words. Stick with words. That's what works. Ultimately, that's what provides. No, no, no, no, they start manipulating the second Amendment. That's not good. I understand, but it doesn't mean therefore go break windows and destroyed property and loot. Come with that. That's not what that that is supposed to lead to. I think one or 2% of the audience is disagreeing with you right now. Really jump in here at 512 could not be more wrong. No, you don't mean that. I didn't say that. I'll tell you what the text is saying. No, no, you just said you think 100% of the audience disagrees with that You're yourself Start manipulating with the First Amendment and the second Amendment to the way the Biden Harris administration has been threatening..

Calm way we reconvene in this chain. World will again witness resilience and strength of our democracy, even in the wake of unprecedented violence and vandalism at this capital. Elected representatives of the people of the United States. I've assembled again. The very same day. To support and defend the constitution of the United States. So May God bless the loss. The injured In the hero's forged on this day. God bless all. Who served here. And those who protect this place. And May God bless the United States of America. Let's get back to work that was the vice president presiding over the Senate today of the electoral vote count. Um, there's some questions. I wanna ask you before we get to your call. There's two lines open. Now. This is the time to talk, and that's what I want to do with you. Now that we are guest free for some time on the program 800 to 8 W B a P 800 to 889227. Who do you blame for what happened today? Did Trump lose you tonight? Did he lose you with what you saw. If so, why? If not, why. And who do you think these people are that storm the capital outside groups Lone Wolf, McVeigh's and TIFA. I do believe as Brit Hume from Fox News said. Don't be surprised if some of these folks And of being anti fur, But we do know that some of them are not anti for some of them are Trump supporters. Um, the woman who was shot and killed is a Trump supporter and a 14 year veteran who has married her husband confirmed it and that she wanted to do this. And her tweets indicate that as well leading up to this event, and we've got pictures of her beautiful woman who's now deceased. Actually, Babette is your name four tours of duty, and she is now deceased because she broke into the capital and acted a fool and Don't tell me that, um, that she was murdered because you are just like black lives matter, then telling us the narrative because you've seen a video, Which is what? That's the lie and the Bs that BLM spews. And what the hell are we doing? Anybody supposedly on our side acting like black lives matter and tifa, When did that become okay? Hell, no excuse my language. Hell, no. Meanwhile, China's happy, Um Trump and the riders today made by the look Presidential, which is possibly the first time in his life, he's looked presidential for 30 seconds. Um There's so much more to talk about, but there's two lines open them. I'm gonna go to your call 800 to 88 w B A P 800 to 889227 Angela in Arlington. You're on w B A P Chris. Um Yeah. Earlier, you asked the question about whether or not we wanted our representative Seo come back into the Capitol building and continue on with the process started. Yeah, well to approach to protest it and or just to continue on with it. Talk to me about that. Yes. Yeah, I I actually intentionally emailed my representative and visit the senators to ask them. Stand up against what I think was the election fraud in in the country to take whatever legal means we have available to stand up and be counted into documents that the American people are outraged at what happened. Now the storming of the capital and implementing violence and overtaking the that has no place in a democracy. S so I totally condemn those actions. But at the same time there were I'd really like to know what the numbers were of the people. The crowds that were actually there. I know someone that was there in Washington, and, um and she went just to have her voice heard. Yeah. And so what's the pretended percentage of the people who actually did stormed the capital versus the tens of thousands of people that did peacefully protest? We're gonna know we're never gonna know because of what some people did. And we're never going to know. And I would love to get that answer. But we'll never know. And because of the actions of Ah lot less than were at the peaceful protest right before the insurrection If you will. Yeah, Before that before that happened. We'll never know because the peaceful because some people that were involved. This turned into, uh, disgusting, violent people. That attacked my police officers. Your police? Yes. Our enforcement officers. They beat them. They spray them. They climbed up our Capitol building. They broke into our senator's office. They can kiss my You know what is what they could do, And we will never know because of them, And the other thing is that the media will never Give the level of what be a lemon and tifa and Democrats did. When they took over the capital. They took over. We'll have a lot stuff with with with what's his name with Justice. Uh, so many think names in my head that they lied about and said it was a gang rapist. Cavanaugh took over the remember that Dicko took over. This was Senate Hart Building. I think there's something and all sorts of crap, and they do stuff that's illegal on toward and and violent. Um On subway at the media will never portray that the way they will portray this that this will get 2000 times the coverage and hype, um, that their stuff will be And its people its own damn fault, because that's how the media works in this country and that, like shame on the idiots that did this are caused and set back to conservatism. Shame on these damn idiots. I'm sorry to use some language like that. But I'm I trying to be as real as I can here. Yeah, And it's frustrating because a lot of people we had pinned our hopes. Since the Supreme Court refused to hear Texas and the other states case, we'd pinned our hopes on something really happening. January 6 that at least our representatives in our senators would stand up. And say the American people are fooled by the fraud and what we know occurred. And even if it doesn't make a difference, and it doesn't stop things, at least we can say Um, you tried to pull the whole over eyes, but we saw and we know what happened. And I pray to God that are our future elections that we even have A snowball's chance of you when I vote, if if you and I vote and we peacefully protest, Um then we can I believe in for we're legally lawfully and ethically morally, I active politically one last question, Do you do you feel that anyway, that Trump may have done it? Rope a doped and wait till today? Wait till today thinking that the real surprise is that today is you and me We're supposed to do something nuts or are or what's on that last year when we take our next call. I don't I don't think that he would have been intentionally inside it. But Wants. I think him, you know, calling everybody I believe in my heart of hearts that he had every intention of being a voice for the American people who do things that he won the election and that it was stolen from him and the American people who actually did vote for him. I appreciate your call tonight. Sure. Sorry. Sorry. You have one last parked there before I move on. I didn't mean to be rude. Okay. Ah, We don't have time for another call Art. Angela. Finish up that last point then and then we'll take our other calls next. Yeah, I just think it's sad that a few bad apples can ruin it for the whole bunch. But I don't know. I still want my senators and my reps to stand up and say, you know, we don't buy it. We don't We don't think it was a fair. Election. And and, Well, well, maybe I suppose it's hard to do that. People are violent, destroying things. We lose all credibility. So I'm glad that you and I could have a good discourse about this. And I agree with pretty much everything you said Thank you, Angela for your call. All right, We've got two lines open now. 800 to 8 W B a P 800 to 889227 David and the Eastern, you're next. And Barry in Frisco than patent. Dallas, You're all going to be there. We're gonna get you the next segment, So there's two lines open to Colin. It's time for.

"From the film Agnes of God starring Jane Fonda This says Democracy now democracy now or the weren't piece report. I mean he goodman as we continue with my conversation with two Time Academy Award. Winning actress longtime political activist to this feminist Jane Fonda who organized weekly fire drill Friday protests in Washington DC. Last Friday one day before her eighty second birthday Jane Fonda was arrested for the fifth time along with him one hundred forty others the Senate Hart office building including feminist icon. Gloria steinem moral Mondays founder. Reverend Dr William Barber and many more I asked Jane about her message to the senators inside the Hart Senate Office Building where she got arrested Friday at this point. My message is mostly to the people outside the halls of power. That's who we have to mobilize. We have to let people know that now's the time. It's a very interesting if you will privilege that we have those of us who are healthy and alive during this decade. It's an our hands. We we are the the the decade that can make a difference in how many hundreds of millions of people will suffer and many of them die depending on our actions. What a power in our hands and we need to be in the many many millions to force our governments in every country of the world world to do what's right? They have to be forced. Even if the best candidate in the world gets elected next November. We have to force foursome to do what's right and over. Five hundred. Environmental organizations have supported call on the next on the next administration from day. One he or she can have Tan bold actions in the first ten days issuing a climate climate. Emergency alert stopping all new fossil fuel Expansion because we can have all the windmills and all the solar collectors collectors in the world but if they keep drilling and fracking and mining it's not gonna do any good they said we have to keep fracking for gas because it'll affect our national security or really then. Why are they sending so much of it overseas when you are now exporting gas and oil all that would stop on Day? They won also issuing a gradual phase out of fossil fuel also making sure that the families and communities and workers that would be affected by that would be protected with union jobs training benefits. Pensions with all the security that they have now working in the fossil fuel industry then working in a sustainable energy system right from day one president could could call for that and many many other things that can happen right right as executive orders in the first ten days. And that's what we're your original question was what do I have to say to people in the halls of Congress Congress do what you can right now. We don't have to wait for next November's election there are things going on in cities and towns and states around this country Seattle Maine New York Boulder many Oakland California where they're actually actually beginning to move to renewable energy and it's democratic. Decentralized it puts people people in charge of the kind of transition that they're going to make. It's very very beautiful. What's happening once? The government is behind them with all of its power that can be ramped up fast enough the scientists tell us it can be done. We still have time. We have ten eleven years but it can be done. We have the technology the fossil fuel industry and the and the politicians that they've bought off. Tell us it's not reasonable that it's just fantasy fantasy that it'll destroy us. What they said about the new deal in the nineteen thirties you know? They called Franklin Delano Roosevelt a communist fascist and they tried to overthrow overthrows him the big banks and railroads but he did. He was brave men. He did what he did because people were demanding of him and then people discovered it was is helping them so it succeeded because even people who were suspicious than than beginning started to support what he was doing because they saw that they were getting help. That's what the president has to do. But we're also encouraging people at a local level to start reducing the carbon footprint of their own household holds but more importantly their communities and their towns cities. Because because we can do it see that's that's what's hopeful about it. The scientists tell us we can. It's the political political. Will that's missing because our government for too long and too many other governments around the world have been in thrall of the fossil fuel industry and one of the top twenty five conference in Madrid. That you just left. That was one good thing that happened. It was the first time in a in an international conference like like that that they pointed the finger directly at the fossil fuel industry up until now everybody's kind of steered away from that so that's an important step and and of course the kind of organizing that was going on around it not so much inside the cop but yeah outside all around so Jane Fonda you went to standing rock the standoff doc standing rock going back over time deeply involved with the antiwar movement along with her then husband. Tom Hayden who with whom you hide your our son. You also really help to fund mainly funded the campaign for Economic Democracy California campaign by. Ah your workout videos and also reach people to say the least especially women millions of women across the country across across the political spectrum.

"Under a wiccan to on today's politics and more podcast, the New Yorker, Susan Glasser talks with Minnesota Senator Amy klobuchar clover showers been discussed as a potential twenty twenty presidential candidate. But she says that whether she runs or not the party will need a platform that appeals to the mid west if they hope to take back the White House. So we're standing here in the soaring atrium of the Senate Hart office building is the only modern office building of the three Senate often buildings, and you know, it doesn't get a lot of love. But I actually have always liked to in particular because there's this grand marble atrium, and is totally dominated by this. Huge Alexander Calder sculpture called mountain and clouds, it's a gigantic black steel thing. And of course, it ends at a very pointy top at the top of those mountains, which always seemed to me to be the perfect metaphor in some ways for Capitol Hill where pretty much everybody is looking to get to the top. Glasser was on Capitol Hill that day to speak with Amy klobuchar who was elected to the Senate for Minnesota in two thousand and six klobuchar recently made an impression on many observers of the bread Cavanaugh confirmation hearings, which he questioned the judge on his early drinking habits, and he answered sharply and then later had to apologize. She was just reelected by a wide margin in the midterms. And she's one of the many democratic senators who's considering a run for the presidency in two thousand twenty Susan Glasser spoke with Amy club HR in her office. Just last week. I know this sort of Washington beltway reporters are constantly going out to see the rest of the country, and Tim what's happening there. How do you talk to Trump voters? So you've actually talked to Trump voters and gotten them to vote for you. What what are the one or two ways that you did that? Well, the first is that you have to show up and you have to go not just where it's comfortable, but where it's uncomfortable. And that's why I visited all eighty seven counties every year one time I found myself in a business called insect inferno because we had run out of places to visit was near the Canadian border at Trump county. And I was in this truck, and it said on the outside of it insect inferno. We kill bedbugs with heat and the whole concept was they would drive around and you put mattresses in. And then they'd put the temperature up to three hundred degrees. So when I was in there, they put it up only a hundred but. Again, I thought to myself you go not just where it's comfortable. But where it's uncomfortable and to me that means being there. So that's the first measure and not avoiding it. And then to understanding that not one-size-fits-all. There are issues that transcend urban-rural like for instance, you don't wanna kick people off of their insurance for pre existing conditions that was something that USA Democrats run on and win on. But then there are other issues that are unique, and I would put critical access hospitals rural broadband most people in urban areas don't have to worry about that. And a lot of parts our rural countryside can't even access of cell phone service, much, less broadband, their cell phones. Keep going in and out, and I don't understand as I pointed out to the farmers union. How you can have a rural cellphone service all over is land. And not in northern Minnesota miscue, Donald Trump, obviously. Isn't talking to people about rural broadband service? Right. You know, he wasn't. He's not a technocrat. He's not immersed in the details of policy, arguably, he's not even all that ideological or he has a mishmash of different ideologies. So it's great that there are issues that appeal to different people. But does that still matters much in this sort of post ideologically, I think it matters when someone makes promises and then time goes on and your life hasn't changed? So I do think it matters. And when you add disruptions in in chaos that make things hard for you. So I think those things matter, but I think what you're getting at which is really values, and it is kind of the argument that I feel in rural. And I think helped me to get support is that you really have to go to the core of what kind of person you wanna have in the White House that your kids watch on TV when they're learning. They're civics lesson and the pledge of allegiance in first and second grade, the second thing is that Donald Trump just doesn't. Talk policies in facts. In fact, he oftentimes is gives statements that are completely contrary to the evidence like what he just said on climate change when his own administration predicted dire consequences from climate change. So I think you not just have to meet them with facts. And you certainly don't want to go down every rabbit hole with them. But we have to meet him with emotion, and it doesn't have to be negative emotion. It can be positive emotion. So when he starts talking about caravans and mobs and all those things in what I say, I say when I talked our people about pre existing conditions. I just don't use that boring term that a lot of people don't quite know what it means. I tell the story of a woman coming up to me in a parade with her baby carriage with a kid in it. And she says, you know, what this is my son. I'll do anything for him in the world. He has down syndrome. He is a pre existing condition. This is what a pre existing condition looks like. So you say, you know, what President Trump? Really your administration is arguing to kick people off their insurance pre existing conditions. This is the kid you're talking about. So I think it's very important to respond to him. But to not let it dominate what your own agenda is. A lot of people. Remember your star turn in the cavenaugh hearings? You're asking about yet. Blackout. I don't know. Have you? Could you answer the question judge? I just to you. That's not happened. Is that your answer? Yeah. And I'm curious if you have I have no drinking problem, nor do I. Okay. Thank you. Your response to Cavanaugh was so kind of St. forward unpersonalised, a different kind of politics than we're used to do you see a lasting effect here up here in the Senate as a result of that incredibly traumatic. I think for a lot of people a confirmation hearing on both sides, actually it was. But when you really go to the guts of what happened you had as situation where nominee decided at a very critical hearing where woman who my own colleagues on the other side of the aisle said she had great credibility had come forward. And then he decided to politicize it in his statements the way that he literally attack democratic senators, and I said the next day excuse me, we can't control. Sometimes what happens in the criminal Justice system, or in politics things come at you that you wish you had. Gotten the question is not does that happen. The question is when you're in a position of power. What do you do about it? So my plead to my college was we need an investigation we need to make sure that this doesn't happen again. In terms of having information hidden and forty two thousand documents dumped on us the day before. So do I hope that this change things because it was so traumatic? Yes. Do I know how this is going to go with the next opening? No, I don't do you think that he still should be investigated. I mean is should the matter rest now that being confronted there are some I know there's some complaints that are being in the court system. I mean that would be the procedural way to handle them. But there's no open way for us to do that now and my own experience with this was just a. Yeah. I was pretty shocked when he shot back at me when I was simply asking him questions, and any I felt it was very important for the dignity of the doctor Ford and the dignity of the Senate and the dignity of our country to not go down there with him and to not land where he landed. Because I think there's way too much of this going on in politics starting with the White House. You know dignity is definitely not the word that is going to come to mind when people write histories of this moment in Washington, Senator kluber jar final late Ning around here. On a scale of one to ten where are you in terms of running for twenty twenty? Well, I as I've said before I am considering it. But I never rate scale things are beauty contests numbers. So I'm not going there. But I have been talking to people in my state and people around the country about it. I think that there are a lot of good people considering this. But I do think you want voices from the midwest. And I think you wanna have people with different views running. I think it's really important to have that. I don't think it's bad that we have a competition for the nomination at this key moment in our nation's history. You know, you say you want voices from the midwest 2016 was was decided in the midwest. Is there a risk of over learning? The last battle refighting good question. I think this will all basically sort itself out. Out. It won't always be pretty. But I think that a lot of people probably won't end up that number, but I do think on the mid western front. My husband is the third of six kids and his mom. They grew up in a trailer home, and they would have they go out and the -cation in oftentimes when they came out of the gas station, she would have them each count off to make sure they were all in the car because my husband was always the sweet, quiet one. And she was afraid he would be left at the gas station and the midwest was left at the gas station, and we're not going to let that happen again. And I think that is more than a metaphor just for the midwest. It was a lot of middle class voters. It was a lot of citizens that felt that they weren't getting a fair shake in the system that they were having to ration their insulin. Like a kid that died in Minnesota restaurant manager recently was doing they weren't feeling like they were treated, right? And I think our party and whoever is. Is our nominee has to be able to respond to those people in a way that we weren't doing in that last election Senator Amy klobuchar. Thank you so much for taking the time with us today. Thank you. Susan Glasser is a staff writer for the New Yorker, and you can find her column letter from Trump's Washington every week at New Yorker dot com.

"Again, Tommy John dot com slash Shapiro. So back to the democratic mob politics teeth. I'm very familiar with this because they've been doing this on college campuses. They basically incentivise violence on college campuses. By saying that if things get to violet, well, then we'll just ban conservatives very convenient as there's violence over a Berkeley. And so the administration will say, well, we've got a ban conservative speakers until we can get a hold of the situation, which is basically the rioters veto. We experienced this depaul university last year when students suggested that they might get riotous and violent over me visiting campus. And so Paul simply banned me and then they threatened to arrest me if I showed up. There's tape of me standing in front of a security. I, their head of security there who's telling me that if I take one step forward, he will arrest me. It's truly amazing stuff. Democrats have engaged in this sort of stuff for very long time, and it's always rich to hear what they're willing to label the mob folks on the left were perfectly willing to label, not only Trump supporters, but go back a few years before that. I'm old enough to remember the tea party which was in large part, a bunch of people standing around carrying don't tread on me flags and reading the declaration of independence at rallies. I went to a bunch of tea party events. I spoke at a bunch of tea. Party events. I was a charter member of the tea party. The left call them mobs left said that the tea parties were mobs. They said, occupy which was involved in actual criminal activity. Many, many, many, literally dozens and dozens, maybe hundreds of arrests across the country of occupy protesters that was not a mob, but the tea party was mobbed. The tea party was really a mob. Jimmy Hoffa, junior. I remember there's some events in two thousand eleven. I remember him introducing President Obama there and suggesting that the tea party were quote sons of bitches. And he said, well, let's take these sons of bitches out because there were mob for Democrats. Any form of Republicans speech is demagoguery and being a mob. Anytime you get more than two Republicans in an area together to mob, but Democrats who are actually charging the steps of the supreme court and bashing on the thirteen ton doors and chanting stop Brett Cavanaugh. Those people are not a mob people who are running through the Senate Hart building trying to buttonhole senators in elevators without security protocol. Those people are not a mob. It's not a mob when folks. Go to Washington DC, find conservatives and then rip up their signs that's not a mob. It's not a mob when you have Occupy Wall street occupying large swaths of land and defy defiling interfacing, not him up. The only mob is Charlotte's the only we've ever seen and we keep hearing this from the media. It is the only the only mob is the mob in Charlottesville. That of course, is not true. It's silly. And more than that, it is obviously politically motivated in the media are part of this whole routine. So the left is, is making the case that their politics is not the politics of the mob. Instead anybody who's angry at the politics of the mob. Anybody who's angry the the attempt to get Brett cavenaugh. For example, the mob Justice, those attempted Hombre Cavanaugh and it was my Justice. There's no process. He was just going to have his life ended essentially by a bunch of people screaming. The folks on the left have decided that any resistance to that is just because you are a privilege, white person, Charles blow who's aptly named over at the New York Times, says a column today called white male victimization anxiety, and here's what he says. He says, during the swearing in of Justice, Brett cabinet on Monday, Donald Trump took it upon himself to apologize to cabinet in his family on behalf our nation for the terrible pain and suffering. You've been forced to endure. He repeated the tire lines that he and Republicans hope will stick and steer the comatose base to electoral fervor, that accusations of sexual assault against Cavanaugh were part of the campaign of political and personal destruction based on lies.

"You get all those things. Plus you get this. This piece of genius come up with by the gods. You get all of that end when he subscribed, please make sure that you go over and subscribe at I tunes YouTube, leave us reviews while it helps with the IT in rankings, for example, and we always appreciate your viewership. We are the largest fastest growing conservative podcast in the nation. All righty. So these protesters are not stopping. They are braiding people like Joe Manchin trying to buttonhole people and we'll see if the protesters have their desired impact tomorrow because this is a razor thin margin. Remember it was a fifty one to forty. Nine vote that fifty one included democrat, Joe mansion Republicans have to vote cushion here. If Joe mansion were to switch his vote, if Susan Collins were joined, Lisa Murkowski, there is no Justice, Brad Kavanagh. He goes down to failure and into disaster for Republicans in the midterms because a lot of voters just say to their own party, you know what you guys are awful. Go screw off, just leave. We're not interested in you anymore, but this is the protesters sort of story. It is worth noting. You know there. There's a lot of hubbub today because President Trump tweeted out that some of these protesters are being paid. That is undoubtedly true. There are a lot of these protesters who are members of groups that actually will pay you'd be out there for the day. I'm sure many of them are spontaneous. It's not all of them. I, it is true that one of the women who buttonholed Jeff flake in an elevator is an actual democratic. Operate. I mean, this is a person works for a five, a one c three center for American democracy, I believe. And that center is funded by George Soros. He's not the main funder. People are saying, oh, Soros-funded let let's not use. George Soros is like the stand in for all human evil. George Soros is a guy who I really disagree with in a lot of ways. I don't think he's a good guy per se. I think he's stood for a lot of bad things, but you don't have to like us George Soros as the bogeyman. Okay, is not the bogeyman, but there are a lot of leftist protesters out there who had their lunch paid for them by groups that are trying to astroturf this that I think is eminently true. Here's a protester. I don't know about this protester made this protesters genuine, berating Joe mansion. I understand for you hit me in the. How can you tell me here? How Howard not listening to us. Are you going to get. Told me step back, the vote, Kellogg as his job Eller how he's gonna vote. And of course, what he should say is I'm happy to listen to your stories survivor. Also you have corroborative evidence. It's amazing. I, there's an article in New Yorker today or yesterday saying that rape does not require corroboration because most crimes don't require corroboration what the legal standard moons by that is that if I were to allege that I witnessed a murder, hey, there's not a second witness that has to corroborate my story. However, you do need other evidence. If I just say, I witnessed a murder, I walk into police station. I say someone in this room this very room killed someone, right? Let's say that I won't name names, but I, if I were to walk into a police station and say that the police would say, okay, is there a body? Is there a weapon of any evidence of this? Is someone dead? Is someone missing? You need corroborative evidence evidence. The doesn't need to be a second person in the room for a rape to watch it and then tell you it was rape. There has to be some sort of corroborative evidence, which is why they're so many cases that the police simply does not take up because there is no corroborative evidence by Michelle Malkin has a terrific video today about the number of cases of. Of of sexual assault and rape that are either falsely reported and misremembered it is not to percents. It is somewhere between eight and forty one percent. It depends on the metric that you're using. In any case, the the protesters also took over the Senate Hart building, and you know hundreds of them taking over the very floors of the building. I'm not sure why this is allowed. Frankly, it seems like a dangerous thing. But here was yesterday..

"I wrote my entire Harvard Law School third year paper on the idea that judicial review should be perfectly curtailed because founders never intended for the supreme court to be superior political branch. And yet that's exactly what's happened. In any case, the passions were running high yesterday and today the Marco Rubio was talking about Brett cavenaugh supreme court nomination in the halls of the Senate, the Senate Hart building, and he was drowned out immediately by protesters because this is the way our politics goes. Now. Yet they snail every supreme court Justice herring coming forth. That's going to be going on. Well, we have a few months ago and it didn't work out that way. You know they're all different. Okay. And that's just the, I mean, that was a normal day for the centers. They'd be escorted in by police. I will note something remember that time when people said that the right wing was really crazy and really radical member of the tea party in two thousand ten, how dangerous the right wing was, you know what? They never acquired police presence to escort members of congress to and from things the next require that, and let's be Frank about this. I don't recall a Republican staffer, trying to docks members of congress and release their children's health records, which is a thing that actually happened an intern for Representative. Sheila jackson-lee tried to reveal senators children's health information. That's what he allegedly threatened. That'd be Jackson Cosco twenty-seven who works for Sheila jackson-lee and protesters didn't stop. Of course, Marco Rubio. Here's a protester berating Joe Manchin of West Virginia. They're going just try to do the same thing. They did to Senator flake buttonhole somebody in an elevator and then yell at them about how they obviously hate. Women because they believe in due process, Ben Sasse was was of ripped up and down by the right the other day for a speech that he gave on the floor of the Senate. And that's because people were taking one line kind of out of context when he said he would have preferred, Amy, Coney Barrett. So would I write my original pick was EMMY Conybeare it if you recall. But the bottom line is that Ben Sasse voting for cabinet. The point that he made is this false dichotomy that's being drawn by the left, particularly between this case and the two movement in which they say that if you support breath Cavanaugh, you therefore hate me too. If you support breath Kavanagh's due process and presumption of innocence. Therefore you don't take women seriously. He said that's garbage and that's nonsense. And he's exactly right, of course. That's exactly right. So I'll show you have left his playing this anyway in just one second. But first, let's talk about how you preserve your memory. So there's some of us who say the memories tend to fade over time. There's some of us who tend to say that memory may not be the most reliable source, but you know what helps preserve your memories legacybox because you have a bunch of old pictures if a bunch of old. Stuff in your garage patrol videos and this mouldering out there. Well, you don't have to let that happen. It actually makes fantastic Father's Day. Mother's day, Christmas thanksgiving gift for your parents makes a great gift for your family. Take all of that old material and turn it into a DVD or thumb drive, and then you got all your memories right here..
