But the guy was an idiot. But I voted for him for 20 in 20, because I I saw eventually I saw what many others had already seen. I woke up. I get scared like you know, you can see it. And now all the cards are up on the table. Everybody if you still can't see what's going on. I don't know that we could help you. What's was most difficult about this is that you know people on the right. They don't despair of losing an election because they know that the left will eventually convince the voters that socialism is a disaster. But When you sisters beyond socialism there was two solitary in is, um, when you see an election so clearly stolen That strategy of Oh, it'll it'll work out. You know, that doesn't work anymore. Okay, I'm gonna stop. I'm I'm that I'm not even addressing a stolen election. I'm not addressing a rigged election. I'm saying Uh, What I'm saying is different than that. That is a that's A That's a deep hole. It's a dark hole, and it ends with Q Q it on and it ends with the idiots that storm the chambers. I'm not going down that hole. We're past that. We must be past that. I'm now focused on an impeachment of the president yet again. For protected speech under the first Amendment that never called for violence, he simply urged his supporters to march towards the capital. Something that's commonplace in D. C. Because there were some senators and representatives that were challenging the certification. Electoral votes. Yes, it was symbolic. It was never going to change the result. But it was Bolic. No more than a moment of silence of someone passes lowering the flags. It was symbolic. It was in a sacred chamber of the congress. It was symbolic gesture. Josh Holly New is symbolic. Ted Cruz knew symbolic. But they were peacefully unpatriotically making The voice is heard of their constituents. And so now, if the Democrats impeachment push prevails Precedent for future generations. Is beyond alarming. Because of Congress is going to impeach a president for speech that's protected under the First Amendment. Any president can be blamed for the violent acts of others. What did Nancy Pelosi say? After the riots during the summer? She just said, people are going to do what they're going to do. Maxine Waters Waters like you, Maxine. I buy on a Presley. Then Senator Kamala Harris of all made remarks in the past that contradict their current position. Needs to be unrest in the streets. That sounds a lot more violent than what Donald Trump says. And it's a sub. It's a standard fraught with subject. Yvette E. That the damage caused by this week's riding was enormous. But it can absolutely peels and could Pacific Pearson The damage from a new precedent of snap impeachments. For protected speech under the First Amendment. In fact, snap impeachment is a contradiction in constitutional terms. Let's break. We're going to talk more on this after the.

"At one point this past summer before the presidential election before presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden shows a running mate. There were reports by the usual anonymous sources that Senator Kamala Harris was thought to be too ambitious to be selected as a vice presidential nominee. But the rest, as they say, is history. But it's worth mentioning again because the senator's needs the activist, bestselling author and entrepreneur, Meena Harris has a new Children's book inspired in part by that disk. It's called appropriately enough, Ambitious girl and Meena Harris is with us now to tell us where as well as to reflect on this historic moment. Meena Harris. Welcome. Thank you so much for joining us. Thank you for having me. So congratulations on the book, which I want to mention this illustrated by amorous about Dez. It's your second Children's book put, But what an incredible moment to be having this book. Come out. Yes, it is. It still feels a little surreal. I did not know that this would be you know where we are right now, when I decided to write the book And I'm just thrilled. I think that it is obviously, as you just said. It's a historic moment. But it's also just so needed. And as you said there was, you know this moment on the campaign trail. Where, um My family member was called too ambitious and it really just stopped me in my tracks, and I think it was. You know that emotional moment, obviously. I was tired, but I was also just had had enough. And I was really thinking about. You know how this this effects us even if we are, you know, Abel Abel tol with it and, you know, get through it, And I was thinking about my kids, right? The next generation like are we still going to be doing this with my daughter's telling them? You know, you could be ambitious, but not too ambitious. Right? Stay in your Stay in your lane. Stay in your little box. And so I decided, you know, I'm gonna do something. I want to write this book, and it was really about, you know, re claiming that word redefining it reframing it for the next generation. I don't know that everybody knows this. But you are also the founder of in apparel brand that a lot of people will have seen on instagram celebrity sporting your wares. It's called a phenomenal women, and there's one that was sold out. With a quickness this summer. As I recall the logo, it says, quite simply, I'm speaking, You know what? The reference to that is. So what? What made you decide to write Children's books? I mean, this is your second. Your first was also a best seller. But what made you decide to kind of pivot to Children's books, along with the messaging that is probably more commonly sported by adults? Yeah, You know, I have to say becoming a kid's book author is never what I imagined. It was never my my bucket list. I'm sort of an accidental author. And with my first book, in particular it was thinking about, you know, raising my kids raising the next generation and Having a lot of pride in the way that I was raised. And, frankly, you know, having little anxiety about how do I do that? Right? How do I pass that on to my kids in a meaningful way and I was seeing as a new mother, you know, with my older daughter. Just the power of literature, and especially at that young young age, that kids often you know, Learn about the world for the first time, through books and family, right? And, frankly, you know, reading sort of the classics to my older daughter and wondering, you know where the black Children were. They were not represented on the pages of books, and we would Color. You know, the skin color and with a brown marker often we would change. You know pronouns from he to she today and I saw, you know firsthand, right this idea that you can't Be what you can't see and further that my daughter she would see images and say, I want to be that thing right? She she now says she wants to be a president and an astronaut when she grows up, And that is because she saw a family member running for president. It's because she read a book about Mae Jemison. That's why she wants to be those things. And so the power of that in knowing that you know I could do something meaningful through that medium is what really initially inspired me. The book opens with drawings of a woman politician who I have to say it looks a lot like Massachusetts Congresswoman Ayanna Presley. Um, well, you would be correct. Yeah. Yeah. Why did you choose to start and one of them? I just It's just tell a little bit of it. Um, she Was also I called, you know, too assertive too ambitious, too. This too That and in the book the responses to say, Don't let anyone tell you who you are. You tell them who you are. What? Is the power you hear in those words, is it? How did you sort of arrive at that? Method of storytelling. Well, first you are absolutely right. That that illustration is inspired by Ion A. Presley, who is a personal hero of mine. And when I was thinking about, you know who do I want this little girl and the ambitious girl to be looking up to and you know, seeing the world through? It was someone like Iona Presley, who I think is just such a Um, you know, not only important figure for all of us, but as you said, she, you know, she carries herself and leads with unapologetic ambition and unapologetic Authenticity and right and power and she's who I I just imagined as the woman that were, you know, seeing this journey sort of threw on the The quote. Do not, you know, Don't let anyone tell you who you are. You tell them who you are. That is actually something my grandmother used to say, often to my aunt, my mom and to me and it's really about you know you. You are the only person who has power to define who you are. What your ambitions are and what you're, you know. Impact on the world will be no one else should have the power to do that. Do you think it's important also to lift up women in public life? I mean, apart from your personal connection to elected office through, you're on it. Do you think there's something particularly important about that? Absolutely. I mean it Z about women in leadership, right? It's about women with power. And I think that we've seen especially in the context of politics that That is something still that you know, our patriarchal society is not comfortable with, and we need to continue to elect women leaders and to, you know, appoint women to positions of leadership. And when we do that again at the most basic level or talking about it, seeing it through the eyes of Children, it's about Representation and seeing what's possible, right and that is again aspiring to an ambition of what can be in your future. And that's what this is about. And I think about this book almost what I first sort of conceived it. As like a manifesto. Right girls with or just, you know, kind of self affirmation Exercise, right? That would really impact. You know, girls, you know, waking up the next day, saying on the dishes, I'm going to go out into the world and just do what I want. That was mean to harass her latest book, A Children's book is called ambitious Girl, and It will be available January 19th. Meena Harris. Congratulations. Thank you so much for talking.

You have asked me a series of questions like that are completely uncontroversial like. Nineteen is infectious whether smoking causes cancer and then trying to analogize that eliciting an opinion on me that as a very contentious matter opinion from me that has on a very contentious matter of public debate and I will not do that.

Amy Coney Barrett set for Day 2 of confirmation hearing
"The Senate Judiciary Committee returns this morning for day two of Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Judge Amy Cockney Barrett. On the first day. Yesterday, we heard opening statements from members of the committee. Republicans made the case for Barrett's confirmation. Here's Judiciary Chair Lindsey Graham. There's nothing unconstitutional about this process. This is a vacancy that's occurred there tragic loss of a great woman. And we're going to feel that they could see with another great woman. Democrats, meanwhile, said they're Republican colleagues are rushing this effort, and they tried to paint Barrett as a threat to the affordable care act. Now today, members will get their chance to ask her questions directly. We've got NPR Congressional reporter client great solace with us this morning. Hi, Claudia. Hi, Rachel. So what did each party the members of the committee Democrats and Republicans? What did they try to accomplish in the first day hearings yesterday? This was an opportunity for senators to frame her nomination. They did most of the talking. After all, Republicans painted bared as a worthy successor to the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, but in the mold of barrettes mentor and that's the late Justice Antonin Scalia. Democrats underscored the rush to confirm Barrett in the midst of a pandemic. Remember Two of the GOP members tested positive for the illness this month, and one Mike Lee of Utah, showed up yesterday, less than two weeks after his diagnosis. He also showcased what at what's at stake. Senator Kamala Harris, the Democratic vice presidential nominee, who also sits on the committee dialed in to participate. Let's take a listen By replacing Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg with someone who will undo her legacy. President Trump is attempting to roll that Americans rides the decades to come. So Democrats highlighted concerns that barrettes nomination is being rushed so she could be seated in time if there's a dispute tied to the presidential election and to rule on an affordable care act case that will come before the court next month. So they shared worries that she could limit the A or abortion rights tied to the landmark case. Roe v. Wade. Republicans, meanwhile, tried to portray Democrats is anti Catholic, even though not one raised the religious belief issue right so yesterday was all about opening statements, and Barrett herself gave her statement what we learned for that. She said. Although she was nominated to succeed Ginsberg, no one could ever take her place. She said she closely followed Scalia's judicial philosophy. She clerked for him. Let's take a listen. His judicial philosophy was straightforward. A judge must apply the law as it is written. Not as she wishes it worked. Sometimes that approach met reaching results that he did not like. But as he put it in one of his best known opinions, that is what it means to say that we have a government of laws and not of men. She also noted that the courts have a vital responsibility to enforce the rule of law, but that policy decisions are better left to the legislative branch. So today, the official questioning begins, right and presumably, we're going to hear a lot of what we heard yesterday on the affordable care act, but in the form of questions to Judge Barrett, yes, members will question Barrett on our position on a lot of these key issues such as health care, an abortion rights. Each senator will get 30 minutes to question Barrett. So with 22 members, this could prove to be a much longer day. Republicans will use this to highlight her conservative judicial record. While Democrats will grill Barrett on conflicts of interest and how she'd rule on future cases will press her again recused herself in some of these instances, such as the day or if there's a dispute with the election, But as she's done during private calls with Democrats, you'll likely declined to make such commitments or share how she might rule on these issues
