"Donald Trump or where you always like this in this wonderful way. I've always been political just to put things in contracts. My first job. I had a 16 years old was working for Barack Obama in Springfield, Illinois. So and this is Obama set that up for me, so I've always been high. Hyper political. But what changed me What Red told me. Is in 2016. I was so disgusted with the Obama administration that I grabbed my four year old and we lose the West Africa for years because not take. Yeah. You know how people fail. I'm going to leave the country. I actually did a funny West African Republican drink tea and spoke French and then want my Bonnie one. I came back to the states because I knew that the economy would be better. And then I got involved with him through Ben Carson or attended always is actually the one who set or helped me. I was on a Web site in the middle of the night, and they were talking about this Fuckinplace Cone festival that they were having in D. C and I'm like, Oh, that's racist. Let me see what this is about. And I saw that Ben Carson would be there. Now. The reason that Chicago is so violent right now is because the city of Chicago decided to demolish 100% of the housing projects which displaced 250,000 people. And so the city of Chicago got a half a billion dollars to rebuild these structures, and they did not to this day. They're hoarding the money. So I said, I need to go to the seeds. Talk to Ben Carson about building the HUD money so that we can stabilize the housing and then we can take care of ourselves. So the Democrats tore down the Taylor homes. They tore down Cabrini Green. They took federal money to rebuild and then they didn't rebuild their just pocketed the money. Brett, the Chicago Housing Authority is the on ly Chicago housing. I'm sorry Chicago agency in the green because they took that money to shore shore up their pensions and pay off their debt, and they're still holding on to that money. So I applied. They accepted me. Then I got an invitation from the president that the president of United States invites you to the East Room come, so I applied to the Secret Service. I bow to the White House walk right into Dr Carson. He and I had a conversation about what? I'm felling you, said Patricia, We're going to get rid of that automatic Karaca tive. The automatic Karajan ifit's what's stopping the development here in Chicago because the alderman No one wants projects in their wars. And that increases segregation as well. So we're going to get rid of that prerogative being. We're going to see development. Well, after Lori Lightfoot was elected the day after he was elected, she went to the sea. Met with Madani, Ivanka and Dr Trump Me, Dr Carson. Excuse me. She came back open the City Council and that no more automatic prerogative and now they're starting to do the development for that reason. I support him, 100%. Well, me, I just I I've gotta I've gotta move in the next thing, but you're you're wonderful, and I want to hang out with you as I said, and I've just gotta ask you Michelle Obama when she was working at the university there.

So the famous Illinois Usedto have a program called the Illinois Governmental Internship program, and it's a high school seniors from around the state. And it moved us to the state capital and we worked in government agencies. So I met at the Obama at dinner, and I told them I needed a sponsor, and they decided to sponsor me. Okay, So you interned in Springfield for Barack Obama and then in the midst of you voted for him the first time around, of course. Okay. And then hey, actually drove you out of the country and you moved to Africa with your child to get away from him. Correct? Yes. Let me back in Africa and that Donald John Trump was elected or my Johnny as you call me. And Andi move back to the country because of Dani. Well, you are. You are a force of nature, too.

Americans and the right to vote: Why it's not easy for everyone to cast a ballot

"A conspiracy theory. Grow this large this quickly and be so divorced from reality. It basically goes like this. President Trump is terrified he's going to lose the election. And he's going to use the Postal Service to try to limit mail in voting as much as possible to in effect, disenfranchised Democrats and steal the race, just as he did with Russian interference in 2016. This conspiracy theory, however, has perhaps even less evidence than the Russia collusion theory. Over the next 15 to 20 minutes. We will systematically debunk this most ridiculous conspiracy theory. Way are not going to allow the president of the United States to dismantle the United States Post office and undermine the possibility that absentee votes could be used in the next election. And he also wants to do everything you can Two stirred out and the results of an election he thinks he's going to lose. So why do Republicans stand behind a Z attacks the most popular institution in the United States government? I don't understand why the president wants to block funding for the post office in order to prevent people from voting. That doesn't seem fair or right or leading. It doesn't seem like it is going to steal a lot of confidence among voters that their ballots are going to be counted right Once you start to realize that your entire states conduct elections with mail in ballots once you realize the history of the Postal Service is incredible Accomplishments, you know and how it's a backbone for the country. You know, you understand the stakes of what's going on here. You mentioned Republican leaders as well. Carl isn't this about moral bankruptcy of the Republican Party Democrats, aided by their allies in the left leaning media, been accusing President Trump of trying to rig the election by interfering with the United States Postal Service in an effort to have her mail in voting, But the simple truth is that there's no truth to this claim whatsoever. In May, a scathing report by the Government Accountability Office confirmed what's been widely known for more than a decade. The Postal Service is in deep, deep financial trouble since it's designated as an independent agency. It's not funded by tax money, but rather expected to support itself through the fees it charges for using its service. But as technology has made email and messaging communication far easier, and competitors such as FedEx, ups and Amazon have eaten into the post office's package delivery service, fewer and fewer people are paying to send mail. This has been a big and worsening problem. Since 2009 when the O designated the USPS as being at risk for fiscal insolvency, as it wrote in the report issued in May. Since Geo's 2009 high risk designation, the postal Services financial viability is progressively worsened due to declining mail volume. Increased employee compensation and benefit costs. An increased unfunded liabilities and debt. First class mail volume has declined 44% since fiscal year 2006. Additionally, employee compensation and benefits costs have been increasing, although the Postal Service's workforce declined from about 786,000 in fiscal year 2007. To about 617,000 In fiscal year 2013. The USPS is workforce increased to about 630,000 in fiscal year 2019. Finally, total unfunded liabilities and debt continue their steady upward trend. Now, this has resulted in the post office, losing roughly 78 $1,000,000 from 2007 to 2019. Senator Barack Obama recognize this way back in 2008 while he was campaigning for president, if you think about it Ups and FedEx. They're doing just fine. It's it's the post office is always a problem. When President Obama took office, his administration attempted to ease the financial crush on the post office by altering collection routes in removing mailboxes that simply weren't being used. In the past 20 years, The Washington Post reported. Back in 9 202,000 mail boxes have vanished from city streets, rural routes in suburban neighborhoods Mohr than the 175,000 that remain. Between 2011 and 2016 The Obama administration ordered an additional 14,000 mailboxes removed because they were underperforming, which the Post office defines his collecting fewer than 25 pieces of mail per day. This routine elimination of mailboxes to consolidate mail collection and keep operational costs down has continued since President Trump was inaugurated in 2017. But now President Obama and his vice president Joe Biden, are casting this as an attempt by Trump to keep people from voting. By mail as president, Obama told his former advisor David Plouffe, on a podcast this past week. What we've never seen before, is President say, I'm goingto tryto actively kneecap the Postal Service encourage voting and I will be explicit about the reason I'm doing the postmaster general said, would delay the approaching liquidity crisis. That was all the aid for the Postal Service in the cares act completely. Separately, The bill also gave $400 million to something called the Election Assistance Commission for distribution to states to prevent, prepare for and respond to Corona virus domestically or internationally for the 2020 federal election cycle. This, however, wasn't enough for Democrats and they're now demanding a $25 billion bailout for the post office in the next round of Corona virus relief funding, as well as $3.5 billion earmarked for mail and voting on Fox Business Network President Trump said. Well, that was simply too much. You know, there's nothing wrong with getting out and voting. You get out and vote. They voted during World War one and World War two. They should have voter ID because the Democrats scammed the system, but it's two of the items are the post Office and the 3.5 $1,000,000,000 The mail and voting Now, if we don't make a deal, that means you don't get the money. That means they can't have Universal mail in voting that just can't have it. So you know, crazy will be many more just nature. Now Democrats have interpreted this, says Trump, admitting he's deliberately trying to sabotage mail in voting by preventing the passage of desperately needed funding for it. But this claim to falters under the way to the fact of the post office can already handle the expected flood of mailed ballots this November. According to the Postal Service's annual report. In fiscal year 2019 USPS handled 142.5 1,000,000,000 pieces of mail on a typical day, the report notes are 633,000 employees physically process and deliver 471 male pieces to nearly 160 million delivery points. Now this year, That number is higher because the Postal Service has been delivering stimulus checks as well, A census forms now those alone added about 450 million additional pieces of mail. In 2016 roughly 136 million Americans voted in the presidential election. The number's probably going to be a little bit higher this year. If official set ballots to every single American who's registered to vote. That's about 158 million people, and then 140 million people returned ballots. The roughly 298 million pieces of mail handled over the course of several weeks would be well within the Postal Service's ability to handle them all. Now. Officials, of course, won't send a ballot to every American who's registered to vote, and not every voter will vote This too. His false. The changes were ordered to streamline mail collection and limit mail carrier overtime costs, which top $1 billion per year, as the Washington Times reported. In the past, postal delivery worked this way Ah, worker would arrive in the morning and work on various things in the office. Sorting mail handling holds on mail waiting for incoming mail to arrive. To prepare for delivery that often involved waiting around for hours and then starting an actual delivery route later in the day once started, a route has to be finished, and that involved workers going into overtime as they delivered through their route as evening approached. Did. Joyce plan, which is now being implemented in a pilot program in about 200 cities is called expedited to ST Afternoon Sort. A Shin or esa es un during a worker will arrive in the morning. Collect all the mail that was ready to go out and head out for delivery. It's known as retrieve load and go. Then, after finishing the delivery route, the carrier would return to the office and do in the afternoon. The office work that used to be done in the morning that way, when the end of his or her shift arrived, That would be the end of the workday. No overtime would be incurred. Mail that arrived to the office in the afternoon. While the carrier was doing office work would be delivered in the next morning's route. It would be ready and waiting with the carrier arrived for retrieve load and go. The effect to customers would be that mail was delivered to the office in the afternoon. It would be delivered the next morning. Instead of that evening, the effect of the Postal Service would be to save an enormous amount of money in overtime costs, streamlining operations and making the postal service more effective. However, this has been cast as mail carriers simply leaving pieces of mail, especially mailed in ballots on the floor for days. For weeks at a time. There's no evidence to support this baseless allegation. Justus. There's no evidence to support the notion that the Trump Administration has been removing mailboxes or mail sorting machines in an effort to a happier mail in voting. Mail in voting might be impacted by not but not by postal service operations but rather by individual state laws, which make mail in voting cumbersome, especially in New York, where a congressional primary conducted at the end of June still doesn't have a declared winner by the middle of August. The Postal Service, in other words, can easily handle mailed in balance. It doesn't need a $25 billion bailout, and it doesn't need $3.5 billion on top of the $400 million that has already been earmarked specifically for mail in voting. The Postal Service will remain fiscally solvent at least until the end of 2021 but efforts to change it efforts listening to the Dan O'Donnell show.

What struck me about all of this is is not just how Democrats have have Done exactly what they're accusing Republicans of doing Have you seen the freak out over the conspiracy theorists, the cue and non believers for those who are not familiar with what Q. And on is it's ah, far right conspiracy theory that posits that President Trump is working behind the scenes to bust the secret cob. All of Pedophiles led by Hillary Clinton and John Podesta, and pretty much every celebrity that you've ever heard off. There's no actual evidence for it, of course, but because a number of Q and on believers and one Republican primaries, it's being hold. My goodness, This is the worst thing that ever happened to mainstream politics. We've got conspiracy theory believers. There's no conspiracy less founded on actual evidence than this post office nonsense. In fact, I've seen pictures on the Internet that have been circulated. Now Twitter and Facebook have done their level best to try to make sure that misinformation about elections nothing that could undermine faith in elections is allowed on their platforms, except for these pictures of mailboxes in Wisconsin. Of all places. That are piled up. They've been taken off the streets. Trump doesn't want you to be ableto Drop your piece of mail in a mailbox. Well, what these pictures Don't point out is these are piled up. Sure, at a facility that refurbishes the mail boxes to put them back on the streets. It's always got a stack of mail boxes outside because it's working on them. Refurbish them, then this idea that sorting machines and mail boxes have been ripped off of the streets in the last couple of months so that we can vote by mail is nonsensical. Unless you're willing to tell me. That Barack Obama and Joe Biden, who saw over 2011 and 2016 5 years. The removal of 14,000 mailboxes and 200,000 mailboxes removed in the years before that. Unless you're willing to tell me that they're part of the conspiracy. You're almost forced to admit that there is simply no evidence behind this, but what's remarkable to me? Is how quickly this became mainstream and it got me thinking. Well, wait a second. Wait a second. Wait a second. If Joe Biden is up by as much as the polls suggest he is 10 to 12 points. Why would Democrats suddenly be trying to cast doubt on an election? Right? Wasn't this Almost exactly four years ago. What President Trump was supposedly doing August of 2016 when the first reports on the eve of the Democratic National Convention about election hacks and Russian interference, and all of this started coming out. President Trump's first said that he was worried that the election might be rigged. You might remember President Obama rose Garden press conference said. How would you even rig the presidential election? Donald Trump is whining about losing an election that hasn't even happened yet. The idea was that Trump was going to cast doubt on the legitimate legitimacy of the election because he knew he was going to lose. Remember the pole similarly showed him down 10 15 points. He had no chance of beating Hillary Clinton. So he was preemptively whining about the fact that Clinton and her cronies we're going to use massive vote fraud to cheat. Why are Democrats doing this? When their candidate is up 10 points. Maybe it has something to do. With this. A new CNN poll finds that 50% of registered voters back the Biden Harris presidential ticket. While 46% say they support Trump and Pence right at the polls, margin of error plus or minus 4% points. There's a new CNN poll. Across 15 battleground states. Biden has the backing of 49% of registered voters while Trump lands at 48%. In other words, that massive lead doesn't actually

Joe Biden says voters 'ain't black' if they support Trump, then apologizes

"You have a problem figuring out whether you're trump and you ain't black it don't have nothing to do with trump. It have to do the fact. I want something for my community. I would love to record van. You're saying he still hasn't shown you why you would vote for him. Specifically a black woman. Running me is necessary especially after the day when we see a black person voting for trump. And you know trump is the modern allowed people in this country. That does make you question how much that person cares about his people. So I understand the statement shop from a from a whole white male. Joe By some fallout from that tense interview between Joe Biden and radio host. Charlemagne the God it comes as Biden has acknowledged the next stage of the vice presidential. Vetting is about to begin. And so we thought we'd call on two of our own colleagues who have quite a bit of experience with that process as we debut a new segment on our program the powerhouse players with ABC News Contributors Republican Chris Christie and Democrat Rahm Emanuel they will offer insight and analysis like nobody else as the two thousand election ramps up and rum. Let's get right to it. You heard it right there. Joe Biden putting his foot in his mouth. He apologized for being so cavalier. But where does this go from here? Well first of all I think what it does is obviously influences. The vice presidential selection. Everybody that tells you. A dozen isn't being honest. It has an impact on a weight on the scale etc and I think the Biden campaign credit for mealy jumping on it and try to Deflated everybody is united in the party with a single goal of beating. President trump. I would step back though and say violated a simple number one rule. You have to project that you're gonNA earn every vote fight for every vote just like you're gonNA fight for this country and what this said underneath was. I'm going to get your vote no matter what I do. Because the other guy's worse than me. And that violates politics one on one but Chris. The trump campaign was immediately out with ads. Criticizing Biden does that continue sure. Of course it doesn't and here's the problem Ramadan. I've talked about this before. The Biden campaign should do everything they can to keep Joe Biden in the basement and stop talking because as soon as he starts talking he starts to create problems. He's in the phase of the campaign right now where it's really a referendum on the president unless he turns it into a binary choice and by doing things like he just did. He's turning it into a binary choice and rob complements the Biden Campaign for defusing it. They've had plenty of practice in trying to defuse these things and they're gonNA play anymore. I suspect in terms of the impact on the vice presidential pick. Though I hope it doesn't impact it because if it does he could take himself down the McCain Sarah Palin route which is not the place he wants to go in my view. This is a first. Do No harm pick for Vice President Biden and run by was already under some pressure to choose a black woman as a running mate. He says multiple or under consideration. Does this increase the pressure? In the likelihood he will choose a black woman. It adds weight obviously To that effort and I think you know I believe in I think you have to look at the history of Vice President. Used to pick a vice president. One do no harm to balance your weaknesses whether it's geographic or ideological when President Clinton picked Al Gore. Jason Southern Moderate Tennessee Arkansas. He Changed The paradigm from balance to partnership. And I think you look at it. It's not like George Bush had worry about Wyoming or president or Senator Barack Obama had to worry about Della Gore's electoral votes. They answered a political part of the equation. But they also added a partnership Element I think in the end of the day the most important vetting after you get to the final three will be president. Senator Vice President Joe Biden. See this person. His partner in making these critical decisions and that to me will be the element that amounts. Because when you look at Sarah Palin she did not fulfil John McCain's message themes and who he was as a character and it became apparent to the voters. This was an impulse. Joyce real choice of a partnership and Chris Biden has committed to selecting a woman. Does that box some in? Was that a good idea. Well listen it's his call right and what it does is it eliminates about fifty percent of the population. But that's his call. I think that you know here. It's even more Stark Martha and Robin mentioned. One thing that I think is very important. Joe Biden if elected will be seventy eight years old with a history of some health issues going into this. The American people are going to be looking a little bit different than a partnership. They're going to be looking at this person to say. Can I see this person as president even more starkly than they do with a normal vice presidential pick? I don't think anybody was worried about Barack Obama prematurely dying office. I don't think anybody who's worried about George W Bush in that regard and so looking at this choice. He needs to look at it that way as well given Senator Biden's vice president binds agent so of his history. I've gone through this process twice myself and being vetted and the partnership matters significantly there's no doubt but also that person has to be able to see you but more importantly the American people in this instance has to see that choice as someone they could see as president of the United States that in the next four years.

"For me to have said one day I'm going to be. UN Ambassador Would Have Been As far fetched as saying. I was going to be on the moon one day out but it didn't mean that I went back to to college and I began to do other things apart from sports. I made myself vulnerable. When into my classes with more diligence with more of a willingness to feel dumb which is never anybody's favorite thing to feel And so by the end of my time in college applied for a different kind of internship at a foreign policy think tank in in Washington called the Carnegie Endowment Somehow got that internships to internships changed my life And the second one which was a year long internship. Right out of college. College was with somebody. Who'd been in the? US government for thirty five years as a diplomat a senior diplomat. So here I was being mentored by him My Name of course is Samantha. He called me Susan the entire year so he didn't really know practiced. It did not necessarily it but in working for him watching his reaction to anything that was happening news. It was always what can be done. And what can I now out of government. An in this weird think tank world. What can I use my little perch to try to make happen? And so from there. I worked there for a year. I began to become immersed in what was happening in Bosnia and after my year with him a decided to try to move to Bosnia Because I was a liberal arts major I of course had no skills Dell's Other than having been a sports reporter and so the one job the one path to get over there and to learn more and to again figure out how to apply. Hi this way of thinking that I'd kind of internalized from him which was what do you do about something. I felt. I had to go there and this think tank was in the same building as US News and World Report. Everything is a combination of serendipity. Suppose and stubbornness marched in one of those Katherine Hepburn Moments. I walked into the Chief of Correspondents Office and I said I WANNA go. And be a stringer for you. A freelance correspondent for you ended up making my way over the Balkans just with a kind of tentative commitment. Mytton from him that he'd take my phone calls and then once they're a group of young mainly women freelance correspondents just embrace me and taught me the ways as of the roads. It was the opposite of everything. I'd heard about cutthroat journalism. The war itself was terrible of course but the community was very nurturing and so why was there for two years decided after a couple years of then breaking through and writing for The Washington Post and the economist and the New Republican other very high profile publications locations. I thought you know even at the height of my career. This is the best I'll be doing. I'LL JUST BE A. I'll have health insurance and be doing exactly this and so I thought maybe I should dedicate myself to doing more than just writing about these events and so I came back to America in one thousand nine hundred five and I went to law school school thinking that maybe one day. I could be at The Hague prosecuting the people who were carrying out these kinds of crimes. While in law school I decided to put the experience. I just had in a larger historical context and I looked into the other cases of genocide and mass atrocity. That had occurred in the twentieth century. Ones I knew very little all about going in in law school for a class. I wrote a paper on American responses to the major genocides of the twentieth century. That paper was so long and I decided I'm almost book length and took a year off working fulltime wants. I graduated from law school but continued to work on this book. It took me five years. Publish the book. One of the people who read the book was Senator Barack Obama who had just won his Senate seat in two thousand four. He reached out to me in two thousand five. I went and had dinner with him Eh. US I did. Because I'd seen his convention speech I've been very taken by him and I had been very apolitical in my life prior to go into Bosnia and it was the first two thousand four. The presidential election was the first I'd really been invested in and John Kerry had lost to prison Bush despite the invasion of Iraq and torture. And and so I've been pretty crushed in the wake of the two thousand four election to see what I thought were really problematic practices seemingly being affirmed by the election and yet there was this bright spot in Barack Obama when he reached out his scheduler. Said you know next time you're in Washington. I'm like oh I just have might have it if they have got to be Washington very soon. Thank you very much are kind of style. We like a little a little creative license so I met him for dinner and as soon as I sat down with him and he started carded grilling me on my work. I asked him was he going to run for president and he's like no way with that be. I just got here. There's a lot in a narrow going to pick apart. I want to go back to your childhood. And how you Garoppolo. You mentioned being an immigrant and I want you to take us through. Your childhood was like so I went to a Catholic Girls School in Dublin Ireland. My mother was an amazing athlete. As well as has a very determined would be physician she had been told teenager that there was no place for girls. It's or women in medicine and so she had been diverted from her dream of becoming a doctor and had gone and gotten basic science degree and then a PhD in biochemistry but all she ever really wanted to do was treat patients and he'll people so she late in life went back to medical school so in my childhood while I was at my Catholic school she was was doing all the grueling rounds of medical school she was just one of these miracle jugglers still managed. I felt to be very present for me Eh but just one foot in front of the other extremely determined women to this day. She runs the kidney transplant. Department at Mount Sinai in New York she seventy-six instill treating patients. If you of your listeners. Have Kidney Issues Vera Delaney. Is Her name again. Don't tell her I sent you. That's my mother. And my father was wonderfully loving in many ways live for me and my younger brother but was an alcoholic and as I got older as child his drinking got worse for me. He had had a benefit. If you can even say that which was he would collect me from school. Bring me to the pub. I spent more hours than I can. even begin to remember at the pub with him which has all of the negatives associated with that of course but also meant that I was just a few steps away from my dad at all times. The things that I was struck by what you wrote in the book was your parents did not have a terrific marriage and you were open about that and and I would love for you to talk about. How growing up non environment as you talk about being exposed to very adult things with your dad how that shaped you for a career in diplomacy well my first diplomatic gambits were a big failure In so far as so many children would do. Oh my fantasy was to broker some kind of reconciliation between my parents not really able to comprehend what the drink drink can do. When somebody is addicted to anything? How much more powerful that would be than anybody's diplomatic overtures especially that of a seven year old or eight year old but I really as a kid I think just pined For a more traditional family life one where I could have my brother my father my mother together in one place. We came when I was nine to this country and my father when we went back as part of the visitation rights. He tried to keep us and and in a dramatic scene. Christmas Eve nineteen seventy nine. When I again was nine? My mother came in and effectively. Pulled my brother and me Out from under my father and said if you WANNA see the kids you're gonNA have now come to America. My father then didn't come couldn't come couldn't get his act together the other two come he'd have been the first to say and then died very suddenly and so I think the real lasting legacy for me which I do. Try To unpack is what does it mean to carry with you. A sense of responsibility or a sense of guilt and kids exaggerate their agency. Think of themselves weirdly right as both both small and dependent on their parents but also as larger than life as if they have all of this power and thus if they quote unquote failed to save somebody that somehow it's on them. We look at your book which is sitting next to me right now. The education of an idealist. I'm struck by how you were able to construct idealism awesome as such an important part of your identity when you had a really rough childhood and you then after going through school chose does a career path where you saw really horrific things that this world can produce and I think for a lot of people that can go through that and have a Lotta anger or they could be depressed by that. But you didn't do those things and instead really shaped who you are. How does that identity come to be? How do you reconcile that screw question? I think that Mydeal ISM has never taken the form of believing that the world is an inherently. Aren't we just place. I think it's my idealism is of the form I suppose of. Should we try to make things better and I think while it's true. I had this trauma in my childhood. The trauma of the rupture my parents marriage initially and then and the sudden catastrophe for any child of losing my father who I love so much but I always for some reason also had a sense of my good fortune in here I was in America. Everything was big and shiny and there was more of everything. I didn't have the same anxiety that we had economically as a family in Ireland is so many families did but I think you know to a lot of people have today an impulse. which is Gosh? The world's really messed up. I want to do do something about it to me. That's idealism it's it's not that the you see the world through rose colored glasses not that you see things as trending right now in in the right direction I mean whether it's climate change or mass migration inequality me too. There's just so much messed up but I guess I did have in my mother a model of someone who just got on with it she just put one foot in front of the other and so I think my feeling has always been. I'm lucky even if I've had some unlucky chapters and how am I gonNa put my good fortune to use because there are other people who don't have the platforms that I have who don't have the voice the microphone in front of me as I do right now and I don't know where that glass half full versus half empty approach comes from but very quickly in my professional life. I began to see people who are making a difference and so I think on one level even. If I wasn't always making the difference that I saw to make I always tried to focus on on those who were and to say look. There is a path I may not be on it right now. What I'm I'm banging my head against the wall but I have always gravitated toward stories of people who have found a way to transcend stiff

Hey, welcome to Delaware. He turns and says to somebody who's not there. So it's interesting Joe Biden is saying that he asked Barack Obama not to endorse him. So it says if Barack Obama was going to endorse a, but no, no, I don't want your endorsement wouldn't be fair to the other players wouldn't be fair. Do you think that really happened? Then the other now, listen, Barack Obama I can understand for the sake of the party, he wouldn't endorse anybody. Let's just let it play out. I could totally understand that. But do you really believe that Joe asked Barack Obama not to endorse him that the other part of it is Joe's out there this morning saying world leaders were calling him up asking him to run for baby even begging him to run. And I'm just wondering how much of this. Do we believe? But Joe this is his third try nine thousand nine hundred seventy attempted this. He went down in flames for lying course. Joe called it.

Sherri, we played that clip of him talk about Senator Barack Obama who is running against him. When he made that statement about this clean, articulate African American guy that was sort of the end of the line for him. Amazing. Isn't it that Barack Obama would actually choose Joe Biden and his running mate? But if we have that clip really quick and just give me ten second Cokie good because it's it's a pa- Sar one. Then apparently Joe has made contact with Anita hill regarding some some comments he made regarding Anita hill. And apparently, she wasn't very accepting of his apologies. Anyway.

Medical Anthropologist Explores 'Vaccine Hesitancy'

"But one of the things that if you dismiss outright the doubts of people who don't want to get back scenes wanna stay away from them. If you just dismiss them entirely, you don't get to hear why. Why? See the need for vaccines. And so when that happens the World Health Organization and a lot of medical authorities and others assume because they've heard certain, you know, very vocal minorities within the groups that have doubts, and these are the things that people believe in this why they don't get the vaccine vaccine advisory group to the World Health Organization listed, some of the reasons why. People don't want to get vaccines. Children vaccinated. The reasons are as follows complacency difficulty accessing back vaccines and lack of competence. Also, there are eighteen states that now allow non-medical backseat exemptions, doodoo, conscientious, objectors or philosophical, personal beliefs. There are granted some Sers and avoid shots as protest against big. Pharmaceutical companies is Ashley said there are some people that are antibacterial that have back sedated. The reason why they're anti Baxter's is because of the repercussions have had they've had with having their children exposed to these vaccine. Of course, the big stories whether or not. Vaccines are linked to autism controversial subject as many people quavered this argument, it's been sufficiently debunked by site. So it's always an argument here. I want to bring up a few reasons I believe should be brought to the debate. And that is here's the first one, and I want I educational power. I think propaganda is poison. Especially when they're marketing poison to you and want you to take poison into your body to put poison in your children's bodies. So back in two thousand five then Senator Barack Obama had bought shares in Baxter International now Baxter International was the pharmaceutical company that created the h one n one flu vaccine and right after he bought the shares in Baxter International Obama introduced the first comprehensive Bill to address the threat of avian flu avian flu avian, influenza pandemic pandemic. So, you know, Barack Obama had power there to present a Bill turning into law to have people bring awareness this avian influenza pandemic now after he became president of the United States. It seemed that there was this fit of hysteria over the flu and back scenes created by the Obama administration pushing the issues filling the pockets of of of his campaign contributors Baxter International and many other pharmaceutical companies Pegasus. Technologies also had joined forces with Diane Corp. On many projects around the world DynCorp held the patents on many of the ingredients of the H one in one vaccine and awarded companies like Baxter International the rights to distribution of the vaccines DynCorp is one of the top private military contractors working for the United States government. So it could be argued that the vaccines were part of a covert chemical warfare programme against the United States because they came from the military industrial complex now. There's also another reason why I believe trust is waning in vaccines. And that is last year the CDC reported that eighty thousand people died as a result of the flu last year. It was reported that the flu shots that were given to people were only ten percent effective. These shots were ineffective because they were for a different straighten up flu and not be h three and two. It was plaguing people across the country. And even though they were declared ineffective by CDC themselves. There were officials who are urging people to get the vaccine anyway. So they're telling you get back scene. Even though it's only ten percent effective by the vaccine, it's only ten percent effective. So they wanted to sell out their bad batch and convince people that it's still nece necessary to get yourself a vaccine even though it's done effective again. How can people trust? The CDC and the World Health Organization. How can you trust them to look after the help of the people went back seen pimps are trying to push back scenes like poison Halloween candy paranoid population. The World Health Organization believes that the issue is complex. They say, well, the issue is complex and believes that the answer to successfully addressing the issue of mistrust in doubt is to basically create an effective dialogue effective communications, which the organisation considers to be the key dispelling fears addressing concerns are promoting acceptance of vaccination, so if they think that. You know, talking to people getting the word out having communications, you don't start by putting people who have doubts on a list of the most dangerous people on the planet affecting the health. What a stupid thing they did. Well, we think we opened up the issue and we want to get rid of the mistrust. All we have to do is open up some rational communication. But then what you do is. You would antibac- Sers on the list of those who are the most dangerous to the health of this country of his this planet. I mean, let's use some common sense here. I mean, it's the growing tendency of people around the world to hesitate when it comes to vaccines that complex. I mean to have the CDC and the WHO say, oh, it's complexity we just open the dialogue, and yet we continue to ridicule those who have doubts so how complex is this CDC or WHO. I mean is it simply a matter of communicating more effectively with people about the safety and effectiveness aback seen. I mean is it all really a big misunderstanding? Really? You must think we're really stupid. I mean, maybe people abolition I've actually a legitimate concern about vaccines because what they're being told by doctors and public health officials does not match their own personal experience with backseat or maybe it doesn't square with what they have learned by reading articles in newspapers magazines and on websites regarding injuries and deaths caused by the vaccine. I wanted to get all that complex or is it that if you are actually injured or suffer any complications from vaccine, you cannot sue the vaccine companies for damages you see in twenty eleven this court ruled federal law prohibits lawsuits against drugmakers over serious side effects from childhood vaccines. That means okay. The Davis acknowledged there are effects from the vaccine if they had to go to court to fight a case, and they said, well, you know, a lot of the effects are really not all that bad there emitting to the fact. The vaccines do have problems in that. They don't want to be put out of business if they create a vaccine that will kill your kid. No wonder people have doubt. And no wonder this is a very complex issue. The supreme court ruled that federal law prohibits lawsuits against drug makers. And the reason why this happened the parents of a child who sued the drugmaker Wyatt in Pennsylvania. They didn't stay court for the health problems. They say their daughter who is now nineteen suffered from a vaccine she received an infancy. Now, I ask you. Why would anybody trust that? It's also a bit suspicious that it some drugstores and supermarkets and pharmacies. If you purchase a certain amount of merchandise. They will give you flew flew shot for free or they'll say to you. Hey, you get a flu shot, and we'll give you a fifty dollars gift certificate to buy anything here in the store. Wow. I get free chicken nuggets with by Walker and a flu shot. I mean, how complex is this can someone please tell me how all of these morons out. There can ridicule people doubt. And this is what they do. They keep you from suing market this like they would mock they market a whopper and fries rococo Koehler or something at you cigarettes. I don't know. I mean, look. This. Keep it simple stupid strategy for pushing back scenes appears to not care about facts. They play on the emotionally Laden Coca-Cola style marketing, and it's also based on the assumption that these doubting Thomases, and these hesitant people are antibac- Sers, and they're uneducated. Well, here's a clue guys. Maybe those who are questioning are not as easily swayed by the kind of superficial commercial marketing that has been employed to successfully so laundry detergent. I mean, if you wanna hire a marketing crew to sell your stupid vaccine, then then how how is it that we're supposed to have any trust in that? Well, all we have to do is open the dialogue. It's very complex just open the dialogue. And while we're opening the dialogue. We want to open into a nice friendly environment. We're immediately ridiculing antibac- Sers as a public threat. That's don. How you do? It. That's on how you doing. And regardless of what you think of antibac- Sers, regardless what you think of back scenes. This is not the way to conduct business. And this is not the way to treat a flu vaccine or any other back seen marketing it like, it's potato chips. In. This is why I'm angry about this whole situation because you know, putting people in league with climate change deniers and flatter just because they have some very berry ballad doubts about the pharmaceutical industry. They have some very very valid doubts about what this does to the body. And they have very valid doubts as to why the CDC in the World Health Organization said all yeah. We have a vaccine that's only ten percent of active of the flu and people are dying even though they been inoculated. But hey, here's a little bit you ever heard of Pascal's wager. Why don't you just go ahead and get that flu shot? Anyway, why? 'cause it's just bad business to tell you not to get it. That alone tells me that there's corruption. That alone tells me that. Yes, people have a right to doubt this.

"In the past half century of presidential races. Whenever a member of congress is on the ballot. Did you know the voters virtually always pick the other candidate in fact in a dozen races? Only once in the last half century voters, promote someone directly from congress the White House, and then Senator Barack Obama that record might concern. Democrats desperate to be Trump. Because right now, most of these candidates currently exploring a run are in congress, but not this guy. Governor Jay Inslee from Washington state who was also exploring potential run and touting climate change is a key priority. Something Trump did not even mention last night. Now, if you have not heard a ton about Ensley recently that could be because lately there's been a lot more political news and controversy around one of his richest constituents. Starbucks billionaire Howard Schultz who just kicked up more drama by asking that everyone stop referring to him by the factual term billionaire and instead reverted him as part of a group of quote, people of means. Enes. The monarch billionaire now has become the catchphrase. I would rephrase that and I would say that people of of means have been able to leverage their wealth and their interest in ways that are unfair. Governor Inslee is here live now. Thanks for doing. This bet. Let's start here one why climate change and two. Would you be ready to take on a potential Howard Schultz candidacy when he is clearly so rich and so powerful and so important in your own state. Well, I see Howard essentially wants to keep his billions, but he just wants to get rid of the title of billionaire. I think we've got one person pretending to be a billionaire in the White House already. Howard gave us a four dollars a Cup of coffee. You cannot allow him to give us four more years of of Donald Trump. Wow. You you are blasting a very powerful constituent. But I guess you think he's you think he's a real danger. If he if he stays in this to to something that I know you care about which would be stopping Trump whether you run or not well, look very much. So we had a president give a state of the union who asked us to be the greatest, but refused to even mention the greatest existential threat to us right now, which is climate change. We have to have someone who created a vision statement of economic growth to defeat climate change in the only possible result of Howard's. Candidacy would be as a spoiler to take votes. Away from Democrats and helped Donald Trump. The only one who really think this is a good idea as Donald Trump that is pretty clear, and I really do not believe that there's an enormous appetite for this country who thinks like Howard Schultz, which is the most important thing in the world today is to make sure billionaires don't pay another dollar in taxes, and as far as I can tell that's what's really his motivation for being involved in..

"And that's what it's been used for. Right. It is it is making sure that people the bad guys don't have access to more funds or transfer funds across international borders, or that we do anything to help the bad guys. That's what the emergency action has been since. It was first used in nineteen seventy nine, and I would say to be another thing that I think a lot of those have in common not all a certain certainly not September fourteenth two thousand and one. But most of them I would say are lower on the priority list of American sovereignty and security than the. Then the border security issues like what's going on in Burundi might be very important. And it probably is. But I would not put that on the level of September eleventh September eleventh or building a wall on our southern border. Right. I mean, I think like the doesn't mean that there was no reason to use those things, but it, you know, so here's the here's the here's the issue. The it's not since two thousand six that the Americans have said we want a border wall. That's when congress including Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama signed into law, a border wall, secure fence act of two thousand six we signed it in and everybody in the Senate, and congress tried to convince me all know Glen this time, it's real no. It's not. I mean, I know it wasn't. And you knew it wasn't. They had no intention of doing it. They were just placating the American people. But this isn't start in two thousand six the reason why it was popular for Obama and Hillary Clinton. To sign it in in two thousand six was because we all knew what happened just a few short years ago in two thousand one and no one was willing to do anything about it our borders north and south are trouble. But there's another there's another piece of the puzzle. The the overwhelming problem that we have is overstayed visas and they've never fixed that either. That's that was the number one problem and September eleventh that's still the number one problem with terror and a border wall won't have anything to do with that won't fix it. But I don't think that's where the American people are. They know that they don't think this is a fix all. They just think this is one box that needs to be checked. And no one will ever check it. If I'm if I'm reading the American people, right? The American people know that this is a problem, and they're tired of waiting around and being told by one party or the other. We're gonna fix that. Because Bill Clinton said he would fix that. Senator Barack Obama said he would fix that. Hillary Clinton said she would fix that. George Bush said he would fix that. No one has fixed that no one is serious about it except the American people. So tonight, I think people are going to be split into camps, the Democrats who have been brainwashed that. Oh, no.

"And that's what it's been used for. Right. It is it is making sure that people. The bad guys don't have access to more funds or transfer funds across international borders, or that we do anything to help the bad guys. That's what the emergency action has been since. It was first used in nineteen seventy nine, and I would say to another thing that I think a lot of those have in common not all a certain certainly not September fourteenth two thousand and one but most of them I would say are lower on the priority list of American sovereignty and security than the than the border security issues. Like what's going on in Burundi might be very important. And it probably is. But I would not put that on the level of September eleventh September eleventh or building a wall on our southern border. Right. I mean, I think like the doesn't mean that there was no reason to use those things, but it, you know, so here's the here's the here's the issue. It's not since two thousand six that. The Americans have said we want aboard. Her wall. That's when congress including Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama signed into law, a border wall, secure fence act of two thousand six Lou we signed it in and everybody in Senate and congress tried to convince me, oh, no Glen this time. It's real. No. It's not. I mean, I knew it wasn't. And you knew it wasn't. They had no intention of doing it. They were just placating the American people. But this isn't start in two thousand six the reason why it was popular for Obama and Hillary Clinton to sign it in in two thousand six was because we all knew what happened just a few short years ago in two thousand one and no one was willing to do anything about it our borders north and south are trouble. But there's another there's another piece of the puzzle. The overwhelming problem that we have is overstayed visas and they've never fixed that either. That's that was the number one problem and September eleventh that's still the number one problem with terror and a border wall won't have anything to do with that it won't fix it. But I don't think that's where the American people are. They know that they don't think this is a fix all. They just think this is one box that needs to be checked. And no one will ever check it. If I'm if I'm reading the American people, right? The American people know that this is a problem, and they're tired of waiting around and being told by one party or the other. We're gonna fix that. Because Bill Clinton said he would fix that. Senator Barack Obama said he would fix that. Hillary Clinton said she would fix that. George Bush said he would fix that. No one has fixed that no one is serious about it except the American people. So tonight, I think people are going to be split into camps. The Democrats who have been brainwashed that. Oh, no. This is just racist. No. It's not. They're going to be against it. Even though they're leaders signed it in in two thousand six when all the rest of the Democrats remembered September eleventh. They're going to be brainwashed. And they're going to say no this is nothing about Ray nothing but race. What does the right say about it? Let's start on our pro and con list in one minute..

Elizabeth Warren could face crowded Democratic field in 2020 race

"Sorry about that and already four democratic contenders have announced they're either running or are considering running. Senator Elizabeth Warren is most high-profile of those. She announced yesterday in a video message to supporters that she is forming an exploratory committee. I'm in this fight all the way right now. Washington works great for the wealthy and well-connected. It's just not working for anyone else. The field of Democrats likely to open up to two dozen names all told so how can Democrats distinguish themselves from one another? We're going to ask a needed done that question back in two thousand eight done help to distinguish Senator Barack Obama from the others running for the democratic nomination. She served as the communications director for the presidential campaign. And she joins us now, Anita happy new year and happy new year to you and to your listeners, thanks for being here. So what do you make of Senator? Warns timing what are the benefits and the risks of getting out of so early ahead of the rest of the crap. I thought her timing was brilliant. Anytime you make news between Christmas and New Year's you basically have a clear field even with the government shutdown. It was still I thought if very strong way to end the Europe beginning here four I also thought that the way she did it. It's symbolic of the way people are going to do these announcements now, which is direct communication to their supporters. She also had a very clear message, which is going to be the differentiator for all these candidates in

"These are really really terrific high quality fruits and vegetables ground up into a great tasting powder. Go check it out today. It's wonderful. All right. So I'm just a szeswith this stuff because it just makes so much sense. Now to me that the Russians played us for suckers. The Obama administration knew we were being played for suckers, the Obama administration figuring that they were going to win anyway. And they could go back and didn't make this stuff. All go away later use this Russian disinformation campaign as far back probably is twenty fifteen use it to attack the Trump team and these key Russians like they're a pasta. Keep appearing connected to key players in this entire thing. Just incredible. All right. I got a lot more to get through today. One just quick note here folks, when I was a secret service agent, I was in a hotel room during the John Kerry, President Bush election for President Bush's reelection campaign, and I'm sitting in this hotel room. And I'm watching the DNC the democrat national convention and a guy gets up on stage and gives one of the most incredible political speeches. I've ever heard I didn't agree with the policies in it. It was very it was aspirated wasn't even very policy oriented, but I set my hotel room. I'll never forget this. I was doing counter surveillance with the secret service, which is cool because I didn't have to wear suits. I wear like regular down close. Kind of like an undercover thing. And I'm listening to the speech. And I'm saying this guy's big trouble. Now, I'm not in the prediction game anymore. I'm going to try to get out of that. We were like two for three in the last few two to three is bad in contrast to the Meatloaf song. Right. Two out of three eight band throughout three is better. You gotta be right all the time. So I'm going to get out of the prediction game. But I am going to say this that guy I saw in that hotel room. I call my wife immediately. She remembers this phone call. I was sitting in the Shelbourne hotel in Manhattan on the seventh floor. Remember where it was. And I said to where this guy's big trouble. This guy is going to win something big one day, whether it's the presidency or he's going to become a significant political leader in a future that person was Barack Obama. He was Senator Barack Obama at the time. But I heard that speech, and I knew right away that he'd managed to tap into something. Folks, be very careful. There's another Barack Obama out there right now who speaks in similar Hopi change e type of talk. Listen, he doesn't stand for anything. He's an inch deep and two feet wide. Frankly, just like Obama was with his policies. They were the policies were shallow and not well thought out, but the speeches were aspirated, and we're powerful and for us to deny that is like the Democrats denying that that the Trump effect was real doesn't do us any good. That other person out there right now is beta will ROY. Folks, keep your antenna up. I have a story up at the show today from the hill. It looks like betas testing the waters for twenty twenty presidential run. I'm telling you right now. Mark this episode. This guy is real trouble. Real trouble. He's a far leftist policies are empty, but he has managed to tap into something on the democrat side aspirational e that Obama did as well. Then I can hear our listeners right now. They're telling me he lost, dude. What are you talking about? He did he did lose in Texas, but his performance in Texas Joe compared to where other Democrats have historically performed in statewide races over the last few is remarkable. And for us to deny that does us. No good. He should have lost that race by ten points against Ted Cruz, and he didn't. But he lose by four something like that that race. Was unusually close unusually close. I'm just giving you a heads. Be very careful Bego is big big trouble for the Republicans. All right. I have some. Some interesting pieces up in the show notes today..
