How Did Juneteenth Get Started?
"Every year on June nineteenth, millions of people across America. Come together to celebrate June eighteenth with parties parades, prayer, breakfast and golf tournaments, cookouts and music. The holiday is now officially recognized in forty seven states plus Washington DC though it hasn't been made a national holiday yet, despite having been around for more than one hundred and fifty years. We spoke with Paula Austin a professor of African American Studies and History at Boston University. She said You'd be surprised. There are many students who get to my class, and they sort of never learned about the history of enslavement. They've never learned about the civil rights movement. I think I've had students who because of where they're from, or their families know about June eighteenth, and of actually participated in the celebrations, but most students come, and they don't know. But let's go back to the beginning on June nineteenth eighteen, sixty, five more than two months after confederate general Robert e Lee surrendered to ulysses s grant at APP Maddix which all, but ended the civil war, a US army officer by the name of Major General Gordon Granger. In Huston Texas with two momentous announcements, the end of the civil war, and with it the end to slavery. Nobody is quite sure why it took so long for news of summation to reach Texas several stories have been told throughout the years though none has ever been confirmed including one of an earlier messenger who was killed on his way to Texas to tell the news of freedom. Others believe that some enslavers truth, but simply continued going about business as usual. The most likely is simply that there were not enough troops to enforce the emancipation proclamation whether enslaved people knew about it or not, so things remained status quo. That is until Major General. Grainger showed up. After granger's announcement, some of the two hundred fifty thousand freed people in Texas, immediately left for the promise of true freedom in the north, while others traveled to rejoin family members one formerly enslaved person, Molly Herrell said in the slave narratives of Texas. We all walked down the road singing shouting to beat the band. Others stayed defined pain work in the fields elsewhere. That day marks what is now often called lack independence day, or the fourth of July. It's the American celebration of freedom from slavery. June teen was first observed in Texas in eighteen, sixty six. It wasn't officially recognized as a holiday in any state until Texas did so in Nineteen, seventy nine. Since then only North Dakota South Dakota and Hawaii have declared a holiday. In recent years both the US House of Representatives and the US Senate have formally recognized June nineteenth as June, tenth Independence Day. Various movements to grant the day status is a national holiday are ongoing. US Senator Cory Booker said in two thousand eighteen. On this day we must confront ugly parts of our history and honor the slaves who suffered and died under a repressive regime. We must also pay tribute to all those who had the strength and conviction to fight to end slavery and keep our Union together. June teeth independence. Day is also an important moment to recognize how far we've come and take note of how far we have yet to go. Certainly during the original June eighteenth, there was still a lot of work to be done. It came just months after the civil war ended and two years after the emancipation proclamation was signed by President Abraham Lincoln the Thirteenth Amendment to the US Constitution, which abolished slavery, had been passed by Congress was well on its way to being ratified by the states, but the fourteenth and fifteenth guaranteeing equal protection and the right to vote to all citizens, regardless of skin color were still a couple years off. And not all enslaved people in Texas were immediately freed some held by defiant plantation owners were not emancipated until much later, some formerly enslaved people who tried to leave historical reports show were tracked down and killed. Many more stepped into a future of poverty, fear and uncertainty. Austin suggests that many Americans ignorance about June eighteenth stems from a disinclination to completely face the country's past slavery, and it's far reaching and continuing aftermath. Still? June eighteenth has persevered. Its observance has waned through the years under the oppression of Jim Crow laws and attitudes, but the festivities that began in Texas eventually spread to more states and the idea of commemorating block independence picked up through the civil rights era of the nineteen sixties, and the parties continued today. Austin, said the kinds of celebrations that I've seen and been a part of have been incredibly wonderful there about black culture there about black history there about the resistance and the resilience of the black community. Several years before grainger made his do nineteenth declaration in Galveston famed American Orator Frederick Douglass himself formerly enslaved, spoke to an abolitionist group in New York about the fourth of July. As being dave independence, and how it didn't fit for all Americans, he said what the American slave is your fourth of July I answer a day that reveals to him more than all other days in the year, the gross injustice and cruelty to which he is the constant victim. Opel Lee a former schoolteacher counselor in Fort Worth. Texas has been instrumental in trying to get June. Tenth recognized as a national, holiday. This year she'll walk from the Fort Worth Convention Center to the will. Rogers Coliseum, leading a caravan, urging people to sign a petition for the cause leave who is ninety three years old has been part of the Fort Worth June eighteenth festivities for more than forty years. Last year, it's as important as the fourth of July. In fact I dream some day. They celebrate from the nineteenth to the fourth like they do Mardi Gras. I haven't dreamed as large as the Rose Bowl or the macy's parade, but I'm getting there. To those who observed June eighteenth despite its shaky beginnings, and it's still unfulfilled pledge the day still holds the promise of freedom, independence, equality, ideas, and ideals always celebrating.

Cory Booker on how the U.S. should reform policing
"We want to speak now to New Jersey senator Cory Booker who joins us from his home in Newark a morning to senator good morning mark thank you for having me in Atlanta was the killing of Richard Brooks an example to you of excessive use of force I was a bit of a new Jersey's largest city with the police department if one of my officers shot someone in the back while they were fleeing with a non deadly weapon that is unjust use of force and unacceptable to community standards and it's very unfortunate and and tragic given the broader concern at the federal levels on how to come up with legislation that both sides can get behind you heard senator Scott say that when it comes to qualified immunity the administration has made clear to him that is a poison pill it cannot be in any kind of legislation how do you offset the concern in the administration that qualified immunity helps well it it it's necessary because police need to make split second decisions and they can't be thinking twice in a way that inhibits them from doing their job how do you offset that specific concerns well let's understand that qualified immunity right now it's not a democratic support thing Clarence Thomas and conservative Supreme Court justice is saying that we need to re examine qualified immunity well some of my Republican colleagues in the Senate right now have come forward to me and said we need to re examine qualified immunity or qualified immunity does in this country is allows a case in Washington were pregnant woman seven months pregnant was dragged into a street for not signing a parking ticket in taste three times no accountability those police officers were qualified all finding unity it's a case in Utah where bicycle rider the hundred yards away was shot multiple times by multiple police and then they claimed it was just mistaken identity no accountability in terms of qualified immunity even in Washington and even in Oklahoma the man with pneumonia wandering stumbling to a hospital unarmed was shot and killed by police so I can go through the whole rific example after horrific example we have to ask ourselves a society do we want to have a nation where police officers who really awful things cannot be held accountable to sit two civil rights charges and that's unacceptable and so I I hear what folks are saying but when there's so many conservative voices are talking about qualified immunity and when we know that no one in America should be above the law I think it's time that we change qualified immunity what what what you heard center Scott say that was the term poison pill meaning this could this could sink everything else what about his idea that he floated there of decertification as a way to reduce officer misconduct well every American should think for themselves if your wife or daughter or family member was that pregnant woman who was brought out into the middle of a street for not signing a property contains three times is the certification a real accountability we are a nation right now where the sense of what's possible has shifted the bill that I just did with incredible partners like Kamel Harrison house members that would have been poisoned pills just a month ago this is a moment in American history where there are things in the Republican bill that allows still choke holds for a no knock warrants which were being banned right now from Kentucky to New York this is not a time for lowest common denominator watered down reforms it's time to stop the problem because if you if someone's needs on your neck you can't take it halfway off and say that that's progress we have the tools with which to stop people from dying and any spill should have a ban on racial and religious profiling call four by George Bush in his first address to Congress are you saying are you saying on this one particular issue that you will not sign any bill unless there is a reduction that would allow for it to be easier to prosecute bad cops look hi I have witnessed in my life the awful criminal justice system getting worse from nineteen eighty till now are criminal or course Rhaetian going up five hundred percent in America and it was part of a compromise bill to liberate thousands of people out of prisons and so I did the best I can in the first step we did to tear down a system of mass incarceration which the land of the free has one out of every three incarcerated women on the planet earth even though we're only five percent to close population so do I want progress yes but when you when you stop shores and start talking about finding a bill that's the lowest common denominator it is meaning that we will revisit this again with another on armed black person gets killed in the nation the rocks we should be seeking to solve the problem pushing the back when possible and getting as big of a coalition as we possibly can if it did but didn't and you're saying that there is a chance here that this moment could you could miss the moment that Democrats Republicans won't be able to come to a compromise no I'm saying that we could miss the moment by not solving the problem and ending practices yeah we know would make a difference to lives things like having police misconduct registries yeah open to the public because sunshine is the best disinfectant so I'm gonna do everything I can in this moment that is it every day with with artists of activism nonviolent protesters on the streets every day well I want to ask you I want to ask about this moment because I mean it's an election year and emotions are already super charge the president this morning sent a tweet quoting Michael Moore filmmaker it said Democrats shouldn't underestimate white male trump supporters rage and emotion you heard my exchange with senator Scott about whether it is ignorance or deliberate nous to plan a rally around June thirteenth eight do you believe that you can come to a compromise with this administration on this issue this is what I know I know the harder to Scotton centers like center Braun who said to me he's full of qualified I mean it's on the table we we are one body the United States Senate and and people of good heart good spirit regardless what the president does he can veto a bill but we should come forward in this moment in history which will be judged we should put our best face F. best faith effort forward to put a bill on intact it will stop the kind of awful violence and in killing of unarmed people that we see in our country we can do that we know what about this and we know that half measures have not worked in the past from person to
Why 'Cryptocurrency Would Not Exist Without Black People'
"Actually WanNa ask you about this one tweet storm that you wrote and it began. CRYPTOCURRENCY would not exist without blind people. You explain to people what it is. He wrote there yeah, yeah, yeah, absolutely, and this was a talk. That I did at after a while I was even ignorant, so we talk about you know tokenism. You know a continuation of the evolving form of housing transfer body right, and that's from a lot of different different things, different peoples different cultures right, so it's not just say black people are the sole reason why cryptocurrency exist, but it is to say that the prevalence of Fiat currency only came into fruition through the US government in two particular historical instances made this happen one the funding of union troops right during the civil war who desperately needed feet this out at the time, which was one of the economic centers in the world. I don't think people realize how much fuel the cotton and textile. Textile Industry in the loan industries that came off of that globally a really created. Will they accommodate be happy that and created the financial centers like New York in fact back then there were more millionaires per capita. I believe in Mississippi than there were New York and in in this has changed over time in that experiment ride that Abraham Lincoln took in leveraging Fiat currency, which was more broadly understood as we all agree, this has value rather than being backed by or silver like the pound lead into the Nixon years where we quite literally came off the gold standard after establishing it. And this is the history right of how money has evolved in how Tokens Ation where we see the token ization of assets and even you know stable coins in terms of store value money. That, that's the evolution in its follow, and that some of the people the first people who were securitise were also black people We look at Monticello and Thomas Jefferson that was funded trauma loan, collateralized by slaves and also built by slaves. So the complexities in terms of how finances evolve very deeply intertwined into this systemic racism, you know that I call it on and that people you know unfortunately push off as or minimise as a well. They said the inward or well. They didn't let this person into this complex right in. It's really a lot more out. Actually love to be called the inward half systemic racism gone. in in a have the superficial racism right exists I can deal with that mentally and emotionally. You know, but but the constraints of the systemic aspect has quite literally change people's life trajectories in terms of whether they can be an entrepreneur whether they could be hired. How much access to credit they get and how that affects their lively. I don't know if people know this story, but Senator Cory Booker from new. Jersey often talks about this in his life trajectory where. Parents had been looking for a home in a suburb of New Jersey that had good schools, and it was considered a white neighborhood, and they kept being told that these houses that they thought were on sale were not available and this organization I can't remember They must have just worked on like fairness in housing or something. got white people to go as decoys after they had gone to these houses and found that the houses were suddenly available and this. This kept happening and so eventually they picked how they wanted, and when they should have to sign the papers, the sellers were surprised because they thought it was getting a white couple buying it, and that was foul. Corey ended up at you. Know in this great school district. Of course he lake went to Stanford. Was Ruth scholar went to Yale Law School now as a USA I mean he's like you know super successful, but yeah, that's just one story about. How systemic racism or in that case, the the fight against it or winning the fight against it in one instance did have a positive outcome.
House plans dramatic action on police reform
"Of Congress meantime promising action on racial discrimination police violence Senate Democrats on Sunday announcing a bill called the justice in policing act aimed at eliminating incidents like the killing of George Floyd New Jersey senator Cory Booker this is not a system that is always explicitly done by over racism this is a system that's real bait that we all have to take responsibility for and get practice it is bad to like a you're gonna see the bill we're gonna release they just give greater transparency and greater accountability for those working with police
Booker says 'moral moment' must be met with change
"Donald Trump is the first president of my lifetime who does not try to unite the American people does not even pretend to try instead he tries to divide us general Mattis is letter was a stunning and powerful I respected Germanos that he has every right to express his opinion that's his opinion and these comments from former White House chief of staff John Kelly I think we should look at people that are running for office and put them to the children they are what is their character like what is there what are their ethics are they willing if they are elected to represent all their constituents not just the base and joining me now is democratic senator Cory Booker of New Jersey senator Booker welcome back to meet the press you call this moral moment for this country but these protests are also trying to spur more than just awareness they're trying to spur a policy change will be more confident in that we're meeting a moral moment or that will actually lead to changes in our policy will be the same in fact when I look at everything from the suffrage movement to the labor movement in this country it's always been the people in the streets often young people who have demanded and forced a change in consciousness that made policy changes possible working all week with Kamel Harris and allies in the house to get real policies proposed and will be releasing a bill tomorrow for things that should have been done in this country a long time ago banning certain police practices creating deeper accountability and so I'm just grateful to see this kind of nonviolent protest outpouring the streets because they are leading their putting the pressure they're creating a possibility that our policies can reflect the spirit of this country that we can be in the law a more beloved nation you know you're you have a unique set of experiences you've been a mare you're a federal office holder in the Senate where should most of this change be enacted on the local level or or on your on the federal level I'm it's got to be enacted on every level we are a society where we are culpable we have created a nation distinct from any other on the planet earth we incarcerate the plurality of human beings incarcerate one out of every three women on the planet earth they are incarcerated or here in America we've taken so much of our treasure between the time I was in law school two time I once mayor we were building a new prison or jail every ten days and explicitly and implicitly we all have made a decision that we're going to treat mental illness with prison jail and police addiction with prison jail improve police poverty with prison jail and police and overwhelmingly African Americans with prison jail and police we now in America have more African American men under criminal supervision then call the sleeves of men that were slaves in eighteen fifty this is astonishing this is unacceptable we need to be more Regis in our compassion for one another more more ambitious in our imagination that we can create a society that's not so over policed or where police we don't tolerate certain tactics that have had a generation in fear you said at the beginning of this that eighty plus percent of Americans think this country's out of control well for black people in this country we thought this country's out of control in the way police is our communities and individuals for a very long time in this awakening is so important to create real substantive change not just lip service from politicians tell us something tell me how you're thinking is change being a mare at one point you thought you didn't want the federal government that you thought some of the oversight over the New York police department at the time and in different ways you even braced it since what did you learn over time about this issue well it shows the insidiousness of institutional racism well we are a majority black city in New York we had a majority black city council black mare black police chief and we knew we inherited a a police department with decades of challenges and so we went to work when I got into office to reform our police department but we didn't have the data we didn't have the transparency and it took the federal government and their accountability in their systems and data analysis to show that we were not moving as fast as we should and so we took on a very ambitious plans that extend from everything from changing our missile court system with drug courts and veterans courts and youth courts to pulling in experts from John Jay college just say you don't have to arrest people to create safer neighborhoods that there are other ways to go and I partnered with the ACLU before I left to set a national standard a collection of data collection practices so I learned the hard way that this is not a system that is always explicitly done by over racism this is a system that's real bait that we all have to take responsibility for and get practice it is bad to like a you're gonna see in the bill we're gonna release but just give greater transparency and greater accountability for those working with police I want to ask you about de funding the police last night in Washington DC on sixteenth street right next to the black lives matter letters the phrase deep on the police was painted down there and that is there's a lot of passion around that issue and when you hear that and the phrase may mean different things to different people but when you hear that what's your reaction I understand clearly the sentiment and the substance behind the slogan and so well thought slogan I will use are your people just dismiss it and don't get deeper into the substance as I said earlier it is not a mark of a beloved community to prey upon the most vulnerable and your society we are using police and fire a guy ran police departments I would have exhausted police officer saying why are we using police to deal with the fragility or vulnerability of our society there's so much money going into our police departments there is a more expensive way to deal with it I remember being surprised in Seattle with a housing group called Plymouth housing where they showed me a data analysis where they look at what was more expensive for society gifts providing supportive housing for Americans with mental illness that were homeless or leaving them on the streets and they found out they were of the same Seattle millions of dollars bite giving people supportive housing because homeless people left on the streets with mental illnesses end up in hospital emergency rooms and jails and and so this is the outrageous but I think people on the streets are feeling and that I share is that we are over policed as a society that we are investing in police which is not solving problems but making them worse when we should be in a more compassionate country in a more loving country I know love is at the core of our ideals but it needs to be made manifest in our policies we would actually spend less money we would elevate human dignity and human potential and we would set a standard on the planet earth for how we treat those who are vulnerable as opposed to what we're seeing right now center when you're running for president you were quite critical of of former vice president Joe Biden and you question whether you question whether his past whether he had the credibility given his record on some of these issues to to be a reformer on this where are you now well I'm fully you have to put my faith in a Joe Biden to be the person who could preside over this transformative change and I'm gonna tell you right now the heroes for me as I look at great presidents past the time of LBJ for example are extraordinary capable leader like Joe Biden but the real heroes in that generation were the people who were sick and tired of being sick and tired and and if there are protesters listening to the show I just pray and I want to say to them with all sincerity stay on the streets near nonviolent protest state demanding change and I think that Joe Biden's election can do that and look Donald Trump can't center himself in this this this is such a bigger moment than him this is not a referendum on one person in one office this is a referendum on who we are as Americans and who are going to be to each other this is a moral moment will we become a more loving and compassionate society not with our rhetoric but with our laws in a rule is and how can I treat the most vulnerable and so this is that moment that I think Joe Biden can be the president for but the responsibility is not on any individual it's on
Booker says he sees 'sentiment and the substance' behind 'Defund the Police' phrase but 'it's not a slogan I will use'
"News room the protests have stretched well beyond New York City we've seen them all across the country we've seen demonstrations in Hoboken Jersey city Newark Montclair and other parts of New Jersey as well and senator Cory Booker was on NBC's meet the press this morning he says there is a genuine call to action he was asked specifically about calls to defund police well I understand clearly the sentiment and the substance behind the slogan and so also slogan I'll use are your people just dismiss it and don't get deeper into the substance as I said earlier it is not a mark of a beloved community to prey upon the most vulnerable and your society we are using police and I think I ran police departments I would have exhausted police officer saying why are we using police to deal with the fragility or vulnerability of our society there's so much money going into our police departments but it's a more expensive way to deal with it I remember being surprised in Seattle with a housing group called Plymouth housing where they should be in data analysis where they look at what was more expensive for society keeps providing supportive housing for Americans with mental illness that were homeless or leaving them on the streets and they found out they were the same Seattle millions of dollars mayor de Blasio this morning says New York City will be diverting some of the six billion dollars the NYPD has in its budget to youth and social services when pressed on how much you wouldn't say he also promoted several other reform a police reform ideas including some that will be talked about this upcoming week in
Congressional action considers making it easier to sue police for misconduct
"Congressional action and it's it's best way is to fix the qualified immunity now qualified immunity was established in nineteen sixty eight it basically gives the sort of an extra layer of protection over top of police they said police can't do their job or they have a difficult time doing it if they knew every time they did something they could possibly have to find themselves in court or they be liable for the action so they sort of set up this little you know kind of back door that allowed police to put their hands on you you know you're on to the ground and bang on the hood of the car you get handcuffed and things like that and they basically have set up this thing called qualified immunity and if you look at it and you think about okay do that sixty eight they did at sixty eight because things were so rough in sixty eight what with America was going through the re establish it for that reason what was the intent of setting up qualified immunity senator Cory Booker who has said a lot of really inflammatory things recently said this there is a standard that has gotten cold qualified immunity which is is what it sounds like it's making officers many of them who've done very bad things immune from civil suits as well and so our bill one of the one of the pillars of that will say that no one is above the law and if you do heinous things that tear at the fabric of our community or even in danger or take lives that that that the federal government the United States will take action to hold you accountable and you will be subject to that accountability and so that's one color other colors just Hey Erica accountability means you have to have standards well you have to love to be able to measure progress towards a standard so when we do something really radical America just keep a database all of of of of the of the use of force actions of when police shoot people and killed him and and and if the police misconduct so police officer can't get charge macabre misconduct one pleased former leave moved to another state and and get a job so up to explain qualify unity in that there's a case that was brought for by this woman and she was pregnant she's in Seattle she gets pulled over by the police she refuses to sign something it's basically she's not admitting anything it's just you sign this which just says you know you've got some injury have to appear in court right just want to sign it they got to get out of the car the bigger the car she's pregnant the cops are trying to determine like where you want to taser Dante's in the stomach I think a taser like taser neck so she goes to bring a case against him she now has to prove that that the police were acting in such a way that there is a prior action that was taken against another civilian by the police and that the police were found guilty of this you almost and somebody has to be a trailblazer have it happen to them have the copy found guilty in order for you to then bring your case forward in this half find it it's the strangest thing if you can't find that then you sorry you can't bring a civil case against the police officer yeah this is a national refuted a great review of the of this incident and the reason I think it's so complicated that goes back a hundred and fifty years yes there were a hundred fifty years ago there's a real question do feds have any kind of jurisdiction over local law enforcement and they decided yes but you can't prosecute a cop in a local jurisdiction if he doesn't know that it's unconstitutional and so what they said is okay well that's it's kind of based on common sense but then they've been as the of the rider in the National Review puts so many incredibly stupid cases that it doesn't really help the way they thought to justify this kind of qualified immunity as if a cop doesn't know what he's doing is unconstitutional you can't then charging for doing something unconstitutional yeah and so the way to prove that he did something unconstitutional was has there been a case exactly like the one that he's now being charged with right there where they judge judicata that well of course every single case brought just about is in some ways a little different and so because of that there was never in a situation where a pregnant woman was tased yeah that was determined to be unconstitutional and therefore you could never bring anything you know against against a cop under this qualified immunity and sold the thrust of the article National Review is right now this is being adjudicated in the Supreme Court yes and his argument is and that's why I think it's it's interesting coming full circle that's a review is like for smart conservatives I mean they're very they're intellectually honed there like William F. Buckley guys the he was when he started it and their argument is exactly in effect what Cory Booker is doing which is this needs to be addressed not by the courts but by Congress that Congress needs to come up with a new way to interpret it because that is supreme court in all the courts are so caught up in this a hundred fifty years of jurisprudence that it's it's just it's too murky to add to have fixed and my only objection Miley retort to the guy the writer National Review is yeah right when can we you know trust Congress to come up with some kind of new quotes the law that will you know work for what now is being argued is qualified immunity which is you know no you know kind of new ones I just think that it's going to be impossible for to get a majority from whichever party is in control to get this out past one hundred so that's the argument and so Cory Booker saying okay here's an idea here's what we should to how we should approach and I would assume the guy the National Review would say good for you Corey I'd rather to be handled in the Senate then in the Supreme Court this I think I don't you sort of scoffed at the idea happen in Congress but I believe time you don't have people on the left and the right would both like to clear this up it is a catch twenty two that is created by this so what you end up having is it we're precedent doesn't exist a court can punch on the question is whether the cop broke the law which in turn in short the president the president never gets established right exactly okay well what was weird with the somebody else's pregnant now okay then you know what that's new we have to be so therefore we're not going to have

"Rally at the state capital is actually set for Saturday. Or excuse me Sunday Sunday April nineteenth at one P and alright joined by Troy. Coverdale thirteen ten. Kfi News director eight Troy's so Some interesting news This as there is some hope foot as president. Trump introduced that three-phase plan to get America up and running again but the question is where does Colorado fall into that equation. A big part of what the issue is going to be going forward is that we are starting to see groupings of states form in preparation for the quote unquote reopening in that they try are trying to manage on a regional basis and be able to Kind of set a set at Easter. A line of how they'll handle things you've got one. That is taking shape in the northeast. You have one that has of course taken shape along the seaboard in the West with the Oregon Washington California doing so and then one in the upper mid west or on the yesterday of of course Michigan Wisconsin. Those states Colorado finds itself with the only other state To its east that would be a potential Kansas of course New Mexico with cases. But then you get into the states that do not have orders in place in terms of stay at home and have limited cases Wyoming Montana Idaho which has a number of cases but again. You've got differing setups. In Nebraska. A short makes the plans going forward In terms of trying to make a you know in terms of putting forth ideas and how best to handle these situations it puts Colorado really almost on its own in a lot of ways and is that necessarily a negative. I mean if we don't you know if we don't fall into that category as he said we have coalitions of states forming but it seems to me that each state has kind of an entity unto itself one of the things though about being able to be part of that group is a better management of some of the resources that say for example Has Been in short supply such as ventilators because when we do get going again And lit a number of these orders across the region. You're going to see you know the potential again for the the virus do put to the hospital at larger numbers. Exactly and so. How do you manage some of the resources That have been limited and coming from the federal government That are able to manage those among each state. That's near you and be able to really help each other out given that that's kind of been the reliance anyway Throughout this entire thing well and again A Senator Cory Gardner this morning. Talking about the importance of testing and having those test kits readily available by some eleven to pick up a slurpee. So the question is do. We have enough testing to reopen. If that's going to be a huge issue going forward and I think that the governor in alluding to really being era alluding to it and really Being about a five day stretch here. That will tell the story on how we go forward. speaks to that because there is not nearly the testing that is available or intake. Not nearly the testing that has been made available or could be made available at this point really for all of the states to be able to manage The the testing you want to see take place when you do get The stay at home orders knocked off and start to work on trying to get your cells To a point where we restore What is quote unquote normal or at least close to somewhat normal right exactly? Now there are some glimmers of hope in terms of of the the testing in terms of the varying tests. That have gone out and are possible but I don't I don't think that I don't think we're anywhere near unfortunately The number of tests of being available to be able to make this go off though the way that the White House.

And how dangerous it was and then they covered it up by forcing the disappearance of the doctors and the journalists.

He's director of the heritage foundation's Margaret Thatcher center for freedom. Who's an advisor to former prime minister Margaret Thatcher. He'll be joining us to discuss the situation in Iran. What the United States should do about it as tensions escalate, we'll also be getting to Joe Biden, who's being unfairly maligned by nearly the entire Democratic Party, because his time has come all Joe under the gun. Thanks to the Democratic Party will get to that in a little while. We begin this hour with the newfound push for slavery reparations, now, I don't think this is an honest Bush. I don't think there's a bunch of people who suddenly discovered that there are people who have been discriminated against by Jim crow and deserve redress from their state governments. I don't think that's what this is at all. In fact, I think that in the lead up to twenty twenty what this is really about is Democrats attempting to bring up divisive issues in the most broad based way, without any level of specificity in order, so they can claim. If you oppose slavery reparations, you're there for a racist, who doesn't take slavery, seriously. I think that's what this is about. Which is why when the House Democrats held a hearing on slavery reparations. They didn't bring in anybody to testify about the actual economic effects of Jim crow. They didn't bring in anybody to talk about these specific number of people who are directly impacted by Jim crow, not their grandchildren. Now, people who are born in two thousand three people who were living through Jim crow, and what sort of money they lost. Thanks to Jim crow. We didn't have any ethics experts come in to discuss the women principle of reparations, what point do reparations become. Unnecessary should we have reparations for every group that has ever been discriminated against, should we have reparations for Japanese Americans should we have reparations for Chinese Americans. I rish Americans German Americans and Italian Americans. How should we calculate all of those reparations? How would that work? We didn't have any of that discussion. Instead, what we had was a bunch of witnesses brought forth by Democrats, including Senator Cory Booker, who showed up, basically, to suggest that, if you don't want to talk about slavery reparations in this broad based way meeting slavery was bad. Reparations are good. If you don't buy that simple binary. This means you're a racist, and you don't want to have the discussion at all. Here is Cory Booker, who by no means is an expert on reparations or the economics of Jim crow or the after effects of the wealth, gap, or any of that stuff testifying in the house presumably, boosters twenty twenty campaign. I wonder about having the last word what happens when the last word is no words. It's. Silence. And I feel a sense of anger, where we are in the United States of America, where we have not had direct conversations all about a lot of the root causes of the inequities. And the pain, and the hurt manifested, an economic disparities, manifested in health, disparities, manifested in a criminal Justice system. That is indeed a form of new Jim crow. Brad issue here is to wrap everything up in a ball wrap. Everything up in a ball. So it's new Jim crow, that there are lots of black people in prison today, even though it is not about racial disparities in the Justice system. The people in prison committed crimes. It is new Jim crow. It is after effects of slavery. If there's an income gap between whites and blacks today. The reason that that so many folks likes to the wealth gap is because it is one hundred percent true that some of the wealth gap between white and black is attributable to inherited wealth, which is lower for black folks than for white folks, specifically because of discrimination. It's one hundred percent. Sure, it's not for that. The entirety of the wealth gap is due to Jim crow has Jim crow ended in nineteen sixty four under the Civil Rights Act now they're still afraid effect, but I don't think trailing affect last fifty years. So there's some effects but it's not the whole effect. The reason people talking about the wealth gap is because there's some truth to that when it comes to the income gap, there's a lot less truth to it simply because people live in a society that does not have Jim crow for decades and at a certain point, you're going to have to explain why it is that other discriminated groups in American life, that those groups have risen above whites in, in terms of household income, the puzzle of Asian American income provides a real conundrum for people who suggest that past discrimination, inherently results in future underperformance, and obviously is not true. It's entre for Jews central Asian. American central Latinos is not true for virtually any group. I don't think it's for blacks either. I don't think the because blacks have been historically, discriminated against. That means that inherently, they're going to earn less than white people. Today. I simply don't think that that's the case. And I think the evidence Ford is, is extraordinarily weak, which is why people tend to focus on the wealth gap because again wealth is highly tied into things like house us, and real estate values. And if you're barred from the real estate market for decades, there's a trailing effect to that, obviously true. Okay, but this is the same sort of broad based language that is being used by Tana. He coats who is being featured as some sort of brilliant public, intellectual, despite what I think, is extraordinarily muddy thinking, I think, Tennessee coaches confused thinker. I don't think he get specific at any point, I think he speaks passionately, I think he speaks in purple prose, and his basic goal is to suggest that disparities that currently exists, in American life are the result of America's attempts to undermine the black body. That's, that's sort of language uses because America's saw black people as only bodies during slavery and during Jim crow and therefore, America's all about the submission of black bodies to crack down black bodies is sort of language, the Thanh coats uses without any. Real historical reference. He basically takes the entire time line of the United States and compresses it into now. Basically, I mean, he actually does this here's what he had to say yesterday was one hundred fifty years ago and it was right now. No. That's not correct. That is not correct. And it's deliberately sloppy language if you wanna say that slavery was one hundred and fifty years ago, and then you want to say that there is a legacy to slavery, that persists in part, then you have to explain which parts of slavery have legacy today. And why and to what percent and who knows somebody based on that, because this is one of the other problems with the reparations talk. The question is who pays all the people who were slaves are dead? All the people who enslaved them are dead is why have a lot more sympathy for the argument that people should be recompensed by particular states like Alabama or Georgia for Jim crow crackdowns on their business. For example, I've at least at least there, you can find discrete victim and industry, victimize her. That makes a lot more sense than a hundred and fifty years ago. There was slavery, that has trailing affects I won't bother to explain sign a check white people. How it is up to an Asian American immigrants from Japan. Who is in turned in the middle of World War, Two to pay a black person who may not even be a descendant of a slave. There's no specificity in the in the lack of specificity is deliberate is one of the things that I find about our politics today, and it's pretty ugly. Lack of specificity is by design, for a lot of folks because when you get specific then conversations, get nuance and interesting when you get specific, and you look for definitions, you can actually have an interesting conversation about who owes what to whom you get to talk about what is the actual argument here. But if you keep it at the thirty thousand foot level, and you say slavery was bad. And if you fail to acknowledge that slavery was bad, then you're a bad person, and we can tell you a bad person because you obviously refuse to acknowledge slavery was bad, because you don't back. Reparations have this. Slavery was one of the greatest evils in the history of the world without a doubt. And also, I don't think reparations are a good idea now as being described by Democrats, but that's not allowed it's not easy coats, wrapping everything up into a ball into liberally vague fashion so that he can overwhelm me with passion, rather than reason. the typical black family in this country has one tenth the wealth of the typical white family black women die towel birth at four times the rate of white women and there is of course the shame of this land of the free boasting the largest prison population on the planet of which the descendants of the enslaved make up the largest share the that right there the prison conflicting all these issues makes no sense you want to talk about the wealth gap again a percentage of the wealth gap is certainly true is certainly due to pass this from a nation but if you want to talk about the imbalance between the number of black women dying in childbirth and white women dying in childbirth no one knows why that's happening with really no one knows why that's happening to say that that is the result of slavery jim crow no that's mostly the result of the fact that women giving birth are not always in the same physical condition one of the leading factors in death during childbirth is wait is maternal weight if this were about american slavery in american jim crow why is the black women in europe has substantially higher death rate during childbirth Than white women in Europe. In Jim crow over in Europe. So what exactly is he talking about lumping all these things together is a strategy? It's designed for vagueness and evading us that can then be weaponized in favor of the idea that you are immoral character. If you somehow disagree with tonky codes. It's, it's not a good discussion. Listen. And then there are people who say, well, you know, tiny, he's he coaches here to start the discussion. We've been having these discussions for years. Cory Booker said, oh, well, we're not having discussions dude when I was at Harvard Law School. I took the class. Randall Kennedy has been a guest on the program. We disagree about nearly everything Randall Kennedy is a black professor. Very interesting thing or on the left, we talked about slavery reparations in his class doesn't two thousand six as thirteen years ago. The stuff has been discussed for years. But if you want to have a serious discussion that's one thing you just want to get up there and grand stand in front of congress. That's a completely different thing. And that's what we are seeing today. Let me get some more about these livery reparations fixing. I think there's some interesting stuff here. Some interesting stuff about acknowledging our history. But also about how government policy gets made and what is helpful. What is useful? We'll get to that in just a second. I will you fight for your freedom. I've talked about the growing attacks on your religious freedom and free speech.

"He fired her and now you have him telling the new acting or the new acting digest director. It's okay. If you break the law, I want you to break. Law, and if you do it, and if you go to jail, pardon you, so even this constraint where you have officials that say the one thing I can't do is break the law. He's trying to find a way around that. And it is kind of the most lawless thing you can imagine for a president. And I do feel like if there aren't any consequences for it. He's just going to keep pushing and pushing and pushing and see how much you can get away with Victoria. How do you put that in the context of the of the way that this is somewhat consistent their criticisms of Donald Trump about being sloppy about being undisciplined about making it up? And yet what we're talking about. Here. Particularly issue Gration goes all the way back to sheriff Joe or Pyo who got the very first part. So picked that a very key piece. Here is the bully pulpit that he uses so he's breaking all these rules. He's wanting tradition and rules and whatnot. But what he's doing is. He keeps up that Twitter feed. And he keeps throwing red meat to that base. So he has this core base of folks who actually like what he's doing. Because remember he came to drain the swamp, and he's connecting the swamp with our existing institutions. So while he is doing all of this. He's also using it as rhetoric to bolster him going into reelection. So I think another area that we can't dismiss is the public large that thirty five to thirty nine percent. That is going to be with them. No matter what. And they like his boldness they like, he's authentic. They liked that. He shoots from the hip, and he's he's leveraging that even to the detriment of democracy, rightfully shoot from the hip casino. I guess the question is is who is he shooting? And is it illegal take a listen to? To an exchange here with Senator Cory Booker on all of this part of news. Donald trump. The president also told the Commissioner of customs and border protection. His name is Kevin Macalinsan that if he were sent to jail as a result of blocking those migrants in contravention to US law that he would pardon him your reaction to that both as an attorney, and as a member of the Senate Judiciary committee and just as an American. It's the first of all that should shake every American that you basically have a president telling people break the law. And that he will pardon you, it it goes. And again, we're sitting in Newark where kids are going to prison for doing things to the last three presidents admitted to doing. Nobody's pardoning them. So what's I agree with my fellow political scientists fundamentally, I think what's so dangerous is that the base and members of the administration and far too. Many members of the Republican party are fine with leading Donald Trump say I'm going to break the law, and we'll see what we do with it. We know that he's been a failure in the sense that the main promise he gave to his base was that he was going to build a wall. Anyone who's ever looked at a map news a bench geographically impossible? And so now, the new solution is all just go into one of the five hundred sanctuary cities and drop off these quote, unquote, illegals into save democrat stronghold. So this local state partnership, unfortunately, they're far too many Americans who look at these families at the border, and they don't see human beings. This is a consistent message that the president's giving his base. And when he talks on Twitter and talks television calling people animals calling them undeserving saying the doors are closed, even though he is the child of an immigrant, even though two of his three..

You've said I think he tweeted it out right after the the report came out that the DOJ should release as much of this report is they can in accordance with the law. Would you rather that happen sooner than later and get onto other things? Yeah. I think it absolutely needs to happen. I think the American people got a fair transparent a thorough. Look at the investigation. They need to get that through the report as much as it can be released. Get it out there as quickly as possible and let the American people have that information. Senator no obstruction, and they left that to the Justice department, they failed to prosecute and also the Democrats previously said, the president could be charged with a crime does that leave kind of a gray area that concerns you look, I think there's no collusion and the decision on an obstruction was a call by prosecutors who believe the obstruction charges wouldn't be met because of that. So that was a decision made by prosecutors as any prosecutor across the country would make I think the American people should be grateful for this. I think I hope the American people are relieved. And now we can focus on what Russia has been doing which is trying to interfere with our elections. We've seen what they've tried to do in this lead up to the Ukraine election in the next several weeks. And now we have to expect that same thing again in twenty twenty. So let's come together as a country. Let's put our partisan differences aside and protecting integrity of elections in twenty twenty. What if anything does the report tell you about President Trump's future in office and the Dem's chances in two thousand twenty well again, I think instead of politicizing this let's come together and recognize that we need to move forward as a nation. Let's make sure that we learned the lessons from. Twenty sixteen Russia attempted to interfere with this election. There was no collusion as the mullahs report. An I had supported the mole report throughout the process has identified. So let's let's move forward. Let's protect our integrity of elections. And let's get the work done for the American people. All right. Let's switch gears in the minute and a half. We've got left with you. I know Democrats are saying let's move on from Russia and start talking about healthcare. What do we do about the parts of the ACA that both sides can agree on like pre existing conditions being covered. Well, number one. We protect preexisting conditions. That's first and foremost, number two. Let's start working on policies that will increase the care the quality of care decrease the cost of care. The the Affordable Care Act failed to do that promises were made that if you like your insurance, you can keep it. Hundreds of thousands of Colorado's had their insurance plans canceled. Said that they'd save cost. They didn't. So let's come together drive down costs increased care increase access to care and make sure that it's not just on the front range, but it's an eastern Colorado and western Colorado, as well the policy policies, you talk about Senator who works on those in. Where do we go from here? We're all working on them. And I think that's the important thing. It's not just a, you know healthcare at a strep test. That's not a Republican or democrat issue. That's something that we can all work on together. And instead of trying to protect something that has failed over the last eight years or ten years. Let's figure out a way it's better for the American people and infrastructure, when do we get started on some of these long awaited projects, I'm working with a number of my colleagues on a bipartisan bicameral infrastructure Bill have met with Republicans and Democrats in the house and the Senate to do just that.

So he is, you know, in this campaign mode and not inclusive world is or lacrosse, I think the president's defenders, you know, what's say, you know that. Yes. But he's also come out and said that this violence is bad. And did we blame thirty centers? When this guy shot up the baseball field who you know was evidently more of a liberal. Sphere. But at the same time having been on the trail myself, I just pulled that from watch of Senator Cory Booker and Kamala Harris, South Carolina, and those of them have just central to improve that seems to be emerging. They're testing twenty twenty wars that we should love each other. And specifically the Democrats would love Republicans, and it's such a Burke contrast to the president's darker campaign messaging, really, I mean, that's I'm out there with you. But our Booker and Harris really talking about loving Republicans. Yes. And it's actually really. How do they put it? You know, they put it slightly differently. But you know, Cory Booker has always been kind of an emotional, touchy feely guy. And you know, he said that were ordered his big ones. It's back to is. If America has broken your head of you don't love her enough. And that sort of however, upset we are return around and fix this with box. Come on Harris has a slightly different version of that. But you know, she talks about how we all need to come together. And this is an inflection point, but it will be fixed without togetherness, and what's what's hilarious about that? Is you know, just in the past week or two when first news and other reveling media attack, Boker attack, Eric Holder for things things like Democrats, quote, unquote, cutting the face of Republicans, and you know, this idea that Democrats out there for Menton violence, and in the case of Senator Booker, they were literally taking a quote about people's faces and protests..

"Ticking. The clock is ticking on what's going to happen here in this. Senate Judiciary deleo because Friday is Nina Friday. Is it Friday? It means that. Okay. So we move forward because there's going to be of vote. There's going to be a vote on. On cavenaugh. And we keep hearing about these swing senators, and what does that mean alternately, it is the talk of not just DC but country so here, we are putting a a foot in the sand again on the cavenaugh sandbox debate as to what happens and to me. That's now, what's so intriguing. And I said the last couple of days that I thought it was going to be sixty forty that. He gets confirmed based on my conversations with people, I know in Washington DC who are connected who are constantly on the hill who are who are aides or who know aids or who are prepping senators and all that kind of stuff so really decent sources, but even decent sources are not really sure because they see a step back. Step forward at this point, though. I think it's the steps forward. So I think it's seventy five percent that he gets confirmed. Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell is advancing the nomination is supreme court. He did that by insisting that they're going to get the results of the FBI supplemental background investigation. It's gonna be finished. Then of course, there is the secret secret room in the capitol and the senators got to go and look at what was in that report, and the it's not going to be made public. But but the deal was expect some of it to leak in certain areas where there wasn't evidence of assaults. Those who have seen it say there's not enough there. There's not enough to to say that in this. Report it doesn't corroborate some of what was being said. It's a forty six page report on allegations of sexual assault by the supreme court nominee Cavanaugh. We know that right. So the F B I background investigation was like this compromise after the testimony from Christine Ford and cavenaugh about whether he attacked her during their high school years one thousand nine hundred eighty two at a party and in exchange for a vote to move Kavanagh's confirmation to the full Senate Senator Jeff flake was granted his request for an FBI investigation into charges by four to one of Kavanagh's classmates at Yale Deborah Ramirez, so Democrats and Republicans alternated and going over the report and to our segments, and it was the rotation. They kept up all day long on Thursday. And. Nino. There were there were senators whining about it that it's unusual circumstances. And the process is unusual and the report was laid out in twelve sections. So they could easily swap them and make the most of their limited time, and there was only one copy and that was a rule dictated by two thousand nine bipartisan agreement on how to handle judicial nominations. So this is why there's this thing of going to the basement. So you go and read the secret report, and that's it. So you have senators that are shuffling through the papers in one corner. Another one looking out looking at the the papers they're not allowed to take electric devices in they weren't allowed to take. If they took knows they weren't allowed to take them out of the room. So even Bob corker said he didn't write anything down. And he certainly didn't record anything because he says that's jail time. That's what they agreed on. That's how it reads and. You know, Senator Cory Booker a democrat from New Jersey is a member of the Senate Judiciary committee told reporters that he thought it raised more questions. Others said they thought it didn't we? Like, Lindsey Graham, Senator Lindsey Graham said it didn't corroborate anything. They didn't learn anything. New corker said he didn't learn anything new in the documents and said it's time to vote. So the swing votes, we know it's Collins it's Murkowski and supposedly flake, but I don't think flake is really a swing vote. I think that's being said because he's been vague. Even after being confronted when he was getting on an elevator by a victim of sexual assault. I don't think he's a swing vote at all. I think he's a yes vote. So. It's really Collins or Murkowski if they both dumped out, and I don't I don't think they will. I think that this gets I think he gets confirmed a year you had the procedural vote. And let's see where that goes and moves on. You know, it's interesting Brad Kavanagh did say one thing in an op Ed peach peace, he said, he regretted the sharp emotional tone during the hearing, and he promised to be impartial. So he did write this piece for the journal. And he said he regretted his town that he he said, it was emotionally said I was too emotional. I was too sharp. I said a few things, and he did say, listen, he did say I said a few things they should not have said the peace was called. I am an independent impartial judge. Because that's the whole thing. You're not supposed to be political as the judge must be looking at the letter of the law and weighing the lawn. The interpretation of the law, and that's the idea. I mean, that's the idea. But I think everybody has whether it doesn't mean you go completely down party line. But I think everybody has how do you completely take all of your thoughts out of everything? I don't think he. You do when you've had like he's had a twenty eight year legal career. So and he said in his piece, I've spent my entire twenty eight years. As a hardworking even keeled, open minded, independent and dedicated to the constitution and the public good. So the piece was rebuffing some of the criticism and some of what people were saying was political bias because remember one of the things that he said is he accused when he was angry. He accused liberals of calculated an orchestrated political hit fueled with a parent pent up anger about President Trump and the two thousand sixteen election. So he definitely said those kind of things, and and that's what he was referring to that. He should have. His tone, etc. And so there we go so retired supreme court Justice John Paul Stevens said he originally supported cavenaugh big time, and he did. But he said he couldn't support Kavanagh's because of his performance during the hearings. He said at the time, I thought Cavanaugh had the qualifications for the supreme court should be selected. Absolutely. I've changed my views for reasons that have no relationship to his intellectual ability. I feel as performance in the hearings. Ultimately, changed my mind. But I don't think the minds of any of the senators honestly are gonna be that much changed. I don't think that we're gonna see a radical departure. I could be completely wrong. I've really tried to have not tried. I've had these conversations with people who as I mentioned have. Connections are connected have spent their whole life in this political game. But nobody knows. Until.

"And see if they're report of the facts. Give any further clarity to the situation. Now when Cavanaugh was on the stand yesterday, he repeatedly refused to outright say he would support an FBI investigation. The possibility that someone could sit on the supreme court for a lifetime without all of the investigative forces. That are available being able to look at these. Accusations is scary. Some Democrats have walked out some have stayed and made statements Senator Cory Booker just spoke Senator Blumenthal of Connecticut is just wrapped up his comments. And we assume it will proceed after everyone has spoken, and they will take a vote, which is expected to pass in the Senate Judiciary committee. At the same time.
