Joe Biden, F Donald Trump and today with 15 days out of the election, The New York Post cover doesn't have a mention of Donald Trump for Joe Biden or the Confirmation hearing. Three Stay with debate on Thursday. It's all Giants. I mean, a really bad football team, a really bad football team. That had a hold on to beat another really bad football team that doesn't have a nickname at this point. They're just a Washington football team. But there it is on the cover of the New York Post, and it is kind of silly when you think about it. That 15 days out of the election, and there's a lot going on this week that that would be the case. But that is the case of the Jets of the On Ly team in the National Football League, who has not won a game yet. This year. They got shut out in Miami by the Dolphins 20 for nothing yesterday that the on ly winless team left in the NFL. Oh, and six. Now, in terms of today's show, Rich Lowry's here he's always here on a Monday And then we've got Karen lower, but a lot of today's show Bernard is dedicated to you two people running in your I think one of them in your district, right? That's right. State Senator Todd Kaminsky, the one of the authors of the No cash bail law in New York City in New York state. Excuse me that Governor Cuomo side, one of the authors, one of main perpetrators of the reason why the crime spike is so high Is Senator Todd Kaminsky, and he's running against a woman in my district for states and get her name is Victoria Johnson. This is huge. This is a big one, because this guy's got his fingerprints all over this disastrous bill, and he's got to be held to account for it. And she's the woman who's going to hold him to account. It seems like she's a a very impressive lady, daughter of a retired NYPD patrolman. Former chief of staff, the longtime state Assemblyman Brian current. And as Bernie said, District nine up against Todd Kaminsky, Victoria Johnson, but also what 805 dog to Min will stop by today's program. And he's running against Kathleen Rice, who's also kind of right down the block from your house, right that she is my congresswoman, Congressman, Congresswoman Rice. Ah, yes, she is mine, and she she's votes with crazies, the loans, the the all the radicals, and if any season is ripe for a Republican to win that district This is that season, so a Douglas Tumen has a shot with the president at the top of the ticket right which Larry also going to stop by as I mentioned and Karen lower, So four really good guests on today's Bernie and sit in the morning show, Plus beat Bernie Brought to you by Pete Morgan in the fine folks at Peerless Borders comes your way in the nine o'clock hour World Series has set Dodgers comeback trail the Braves twice last night, but Ballenger solo home run in the seventh, I believe got the Dodgers a 43 win over the brave So the World Series starts tomorrow night with Tampa Bay taking on the Los Angeles Dodgers, But the real World Series is 15 days, just 15 days. From tomorrow when Trump takes on Joe Biden and again back and forth yesterday, Trump talking about Hunter and Joan Joan. Not really saying much other than has he denied this flat out. Denied this this weekend course sometimes. No. Nobody. Neither Hunter nor Joe Biden. Nor anybody affiliated with them has denied it. Nobody has denied it because it's true Fox News is completely and totally verified. The authenticity of these emails. These laptops Yeah, they were Hunter Biden's and the e mails are authentic, and they're very, very incriminating. Not only was I not only was Joe Biden getting paid, he was receiving kickbacks from his from Hunter Biden, right. In other words, that's how it worked. The big guy. It's sort of the Communist model of corruption is Don't pay the person directly pay their family in this way. Your hands are sort of clean, and they used that model. But in one case, the in 2017 There was a package of what they call removing oration. And not only was hunter getting 20%. Joe Biden's brother, James was getting 10% from from the Communist Chinese Party. 10% and also Hunter was holding 10% for the big guy, Joe Biden. Let's see what happens on I would think Thursday night when we get our a second and final Taubate, and at that point, we're going to be 11 days out from the election Thursday night. I guess it's Kristen Welker, NBC. I have to imagine that Donald Trump is goingto hammer that thing I don't know if Welcome brings it up or not, but unlike last week when he did not bring it up at the town meeting with Savannah Guthrie, I have a feeling Thursday night. That's going to be part of Donald Trump's attack. Well, she's a she's completely and totally as biases. Anybody as biases. Susan Pages buys the Savannah Guthrie Chris Wallace. That's a Kristen Welker. She comes from a Democrat family. Obama supporters all Hillary Clinton supporters all she actually donated a lot of money to the Obama's. That's right, right? That's right. So it's it's a complete total unfair. You know, this is not a conflict. I mean, complete total. Look, this debate commission after this. Ah, I don't even know how the trump people agreed to these debates with these people, but they did. On. But yes, if she doesn't bring it up the president, most definitely will bring it up and it should be. I mean, it's the last debate. Lookit look, remember the last debate. Ah, I think it was the very last debate. Or maybe it was earlier with Hillary Clinton. That turned everything around with Trump said. Oh, you'd be in jail and it was right at the access Hollywood tape. He brought a bunch of Ah Bill Clinton raped victims to the debate, and that turned him around. And that seat seems to be what happened last week. Everything is turning around. And maybe that will continue again this week. So I will see Thursday not only the debate, but also the Senate will vote on confirmation for Amy Cockney Barrel, which was a big story of course a week ago locally, how about what happened in Kabul Hill, Brooklyn yesterday. Where they held this funeral. If you will. 50 protesters, led by our good friend, Johnny Steen was on Fox News as we speak. She's on Fox and friends in the morning they buried in a silver casket 6500 of Andrew Cuomo's books. Andrew Cuomo, of course, writing a book on How Great He's been throwing this covert crisis, despite about 12,000 elderly people dying because of his policy. I mean, he's killed more people in the culvert deal than any other mayor or governor or state official in this country, and he wrote a book, But yesterday was the funeral and now he's looking to profit off it. And he made the rounds last week as the president called them. He's a bully and a thug. He's also a corrupt, murdering psychopath is what he is, and nobody's gonna let him get off the hook. Every turn. He makes. Everywhere he goes, They're going to remind him of what he did. They were holding up signs yesterday, Cuomo killed my parents and people. These types of people are not going to forget what Cuomo he's going to carry this baggage around. In addition to the No cash bail law, the Mother. I mean, the corruption, everything, ignoring the riots that that what went on here in New York City for how many we never you never addressed them. This stuff is going to stick with this guy for a long time. And finally, Nancy Pelosi has given Mitch McConnell and crew 48 hours to get this latest stimulus package done. Obviously, with the election just 15 days away, we are pretty much down to crunch time. So now a 48 hour ultimatum from Nancy Pelosi. Well, ah McConnell and company Are giving her a 48 hour ultimatum to come. Come around and agree to a $1.8 trillion of a stimulus package. You have Nancy Pelosi, You have 48 hours to agree to a reasonable 1.8 trillion That would help out a lot of people. So you have 48 hours. Ahh. Other punk in a pantsuit.

It's because they say coming, too, By the way there near you. There was you live up in 103rd in Riverside. That area, right? There was a guy killed, shot and killed days ago at 115 Columbus.

Of of a black kid. By what land living day Lahey was black in the old men were white. I mean, listen in this day and age, according to The Washington Post, The New York Times You have to identify people by race. He was black, and they were white. Same thing with the video that Andrea posted black keys like people just going so it's not just black kids in the inner city. Gotta getting shot up. It's also about why old white men on the subway on a Sunday morning the seven train, for God's sakes now Tony Herbert. He's an activist, a black activists, he said. This aboutthe one year old the guns keep going off. And now we have a one year old and the blood is on the hands of this mayor in the state Legislature. Now that's progress. We got hands, blood on the hands of the mayor and the state Legislature and the governor. Because the governor signed what the state Legislature with Senator Todd Kaminsky, the no cash bail law that he wrote Governor Cuomo signed it into law. He's got blood on his hands. He's not free in this now. AOC this genius. This is what she said about that the surge the spike in crime in the inner cities, particularly New York. Maybe this has to do with the fact that people aren't paying their rent and are scared to pay their rent. And so they go out and they need to feed their child and they don't have money. So you maybe have to put in a position where they feel like they either need to shop lift some bread. Or go hungry That might you know this is a lead is an old maxim. It says. It's better to be thought stupid than open your mouth and remove all doubt. Wow. She has never saw that. Max just never read it. She doesn't know about it. But that is the dumbest thing.

"Again by Florence. It's morning edition from NPR news. I'm Steve Inskeep. And I'm Rachel Martin. Good morning, we are following reports that the Trump administration authorized airstrikes against Iran and pulled those same air strikes back treat. A party is founder and president of the national Ronnie in American Council is latest book is titled losing an enemy Obama Iran and the triumph of diplomacy treat a you were here yesterday. You are with us again this morning because developments are unfolding quickly. What do you make of these reports? Now that President Trump ordered airstrikes against Iran and then planes were in the air already. He ordered that they come back. Well, we don't know exactly why he would not to come back, but we do know that home pale Bolton and hassle have been pushing him to react military to downing of the drone which the military of the United States has warned very likely will lead to a much larger military confrontation. They have made their case to Trump as to why the United States should go to war over a drone. I would like to see them try to make that case to the American people and tell American people why their sons, daughters, fathers and mothers needs to die because of drone was shot down. Do you think this Bolton's Ron? I think Trump thinks that this probably serves as a warning that he was very close to doing it, and he can do it. And as a result, it has a deterring effect, whether that is the case or not. We will have to see how the Iranians react over next twenty four or so hours. I thought it was interesting that the Ronnie are saying that there was another manned airplane, along with the drone, and they chose not to shoot that out that may indicate that Trump's warnings that a single American dying would be a red line for the US, and the volumes respected that right? I'm this came down in a statement of and a Ron saying, again, that wasn't just a manned aircraft that was flying the Stroman and drone it had thirty five people on board and they're wanting some kind of credit for using restraint. But at the same time, treated in the same statement, they say they took out that US drone because an I'm quoting here we intended to send a message to American terrorists in. The region that doesn't sound like placating language that is by no means placating language. We have to remember though, that they are still insisting that the drone was in Iranian airspace. And if it wasn't even in their space. I don't think we should be surprised if they were to shoot it down, just as much as the US should which shoot down in Iranian drones in American airspace. I think it would be really valuable to actually have proper investigation of what radio Kurdish that in itself has diffusing effect. It causes more time to be added to the clock and puts restraint on all sides, which is exactly what we need at this moment and you say, investigate, because there is still dispute over whether or not a Ron shot this drone down, because it was flying over at sovereign airspace. Or whether as the US argues, it was over international waters. What happens if President Trump changes has mind, again and moves forward with strikes? I mean, does that would something like that change Iran's behavior? Is there precedent to show that a run would would alter? It's, it's aggressive posture in the Gulf and beyond in response to something to something like that. Well, I think we have to take a second, look at the context here because I'm not entirely in agreement that it is Iranian who have escalated situation towards this, this whole entire situation has come about because Donald Trump chose to walk out of the nuclear deal. He took a resolved issue and unresolved it, we had a conflict that was close to war, a couple years ago, it got resolved he unresolved that. And we are now back at the brink of war. But if Trump does take military action, particularly if the reporting is correct, that it would leave to leave hundreds of deaths on the aside. I faded that will cause volumes to respond accordingly. And then we will have it for war to, to party. Thank you for joining us. He talked to us on Skype. He's the author of the book losing enemy Obama, Iran, and the triumph of diplomacy. Thank you so much. New York is set to enact one of the country's most aggressive plans to address climate change.

"Could be coming. Governor Cuomo somehow twisted the arm of mayor de Blasio, and those two have agreed congestion pricing should be implemented to raise funds to make the needed repairs for the New York City subway system. So the people in the cars are going to be paying for the people in the subways very fair to me. Right. Joining me now to talk more about that is state Senator Todd Kaminsky. He is a democrat from Long Island, and he and several of his Long Island colleagues. Democrats at the moment are opposed to the plan. Senator good morning. Nice to speak with you. Now, the way the statement that that you and your colleagues signs said you cannot support the proposal in its current state. What is your objection? Sure. Well, you know, I think you you laid out just in your opening we wanna make sure that telling long islanders. Hey, driving into Manhattan, central business district or something? The state doesn't want any more the city's clogged it's bad for the environment. And you know, we need funds to to help manage transit then that some of that money should go to help Long Island. Mass transit. You're right now, the Long Island Rail road is is having performance issues, which is putting it lightly, and we want to make sure that our mass transit that's going to be taking people into the city is going to be reliable and safe. Whether that's long railroad buses people have spoken about as well, you know, something that should be funded adequately. So we we want to make sure that up long. Islanders are part of the burden of of these toll. That are going to be implemented that they are should be a benefit to them as well. So that this plan advantages long islanders, and we think we can get there. That's just not what was originally proposed earlier this week. Well, it seems only fair I mean, the people from New Jersey coming in. They're going to get I live in New Jersey. So we'll get we'll get nothing, but an extra charge, but as New Yorkers, and obviously you're gonna be paying the tax, and you do want something out of it. I think one of the biggest arguments against this at the moment is that you're not quite sure how it's gonna work where the money's gonna go. How much they know even tell you how much it's gonna cost. Those details in between now and April first when the state budget has to be enacted to be timely that, you know, a lot of those details are going to be flushed out, and and we're pressing them. So give you an example right now, the plan said that you can be charged to enter or remain in the central business district, which is sixtieth street and south. What does it mean to be to remain there? That's a good question. I was just going to answer that. Yeah. You know, you drive. You look, I I understand the concept that if you're four hire car, and you just circling around the block and the city, you're, you know, you're you're you could certainly be jamming up traffic. But what if you go in park for a day or a few hours, you know? So we we obviously want to make sure this is detailed as possible. Because look, I I will say this the idea that we have to do something to, you know, both my writers off the railroad and many take the subway. So having a a subway system in crisis is not helpful. It's not helpful to the region, not helpful along islanders. But we also want to make sure that Long Island is seeing specific benefit to this too. And I think that's something we we can work out. Have you heard a a level of the congestion fem-? There was one report said eleven dollars. Now that didn't come from the governor's office with some other organization, but that's what they were talking about something in the neighborhood of eleven dollars. You know, it's funny too. So what's been announced is what we think could be gained from it? And then I guess you gotta work backwards. Right. So what we've been told? That we think this could generate a billion dollars a year, and you know, with bonding on some of that money fifteen billion dollars. So you gotta you know, if that's what people are hoping that take is so to speak that you kind of have to work backwards and figure out how to do the tolling prices. Now, it's also called variable tolls, right? Where some parts of the day. You wanna make it higher some lower? We're not really sure what we're going to try to have clarity on and say, you know, what is variable mean does that mean there's somebody increasing and decreasing it every day looking at traffic doesn't mean it just for the whole year. How is that going to be set who's deciding now so very important questions that in this next month we have to work on? And you know, this is one of the top priorities. You know, t t to make sure if it's going to happen that it's fair. And if it's going to happen that it's you know, we know what we're getting into. And right now, you know, that's why we issued a statement. We did one of the reasons just a Long Island delegation is to say, look, we understand why people want to do this. But we want to make sure there's a fair and equitable plan just playing it. But we're happy to meet with anyone at anytime to help help get us there. We're talking to stay Senator Kaminsky from Wong island, and I know how Albany works that that is probably not gonna come out until just a couple of hours before midnight on April. First. Yeah. The money place. It's it. It's not the best way to do business. There's no doubt about that. But I will say, you know, being in the majority now, which we had not been heretofore in the Senate. We have an opportunity to be in those negotiations to to push certain points to you know, to to do that. So there is a extremely powerful. And correct argument. That's much details should be made public before we vote on it. So the public can weigh in. That's how it's supposed to work. But a lot of the details at your speaking of we are discussing now we are trying to get right? And and we made clear our our position is a Long Island delegation that long island's got to be treated fairly in this process. Okay. Let's talk about another issue now in front of the Albany legislature. Again, that is the Amazon deal. We thought that this was done Amazon and pulled out. But now we understand that the governor is trying to renegotiate resell Amazon and coming to Long Island city. Now, I believe you were in favor of the initial deal. Yes. I I was I think it's clear to most people a Long Island that I represent but having our region have a diversified strong economy with jobs and people live on the island or traveled to the island and just having a that that many jobs to a region would just be extremely beneficial force. So from your standpoint, what was the opposition that drove Amazon away. Was it a call for unionization? Was it just they didn't want a big business? I mean, what was the opposition or the incentives? Yeah. I look I think it was a lot of it. I think I think it was a combination of things you look, I think the there was a lot of information thrown around some of it accurate. Some of it not in terms about what Amazon was getting. I certainly think the fact that, you know, legislators were not initially part of the discussion rankled some people, and I also think, you know, anytime you make change and bring a big project into a community that particular community has concerns what it does to housing, etc. But I will say this. I've always been a believer that you can get sides around a table and figure something out, and that's certainly what should happen here. I understand what it would do to housing what it would do to transportation in the area, but you can fix those things you could get guarantees, and you can get agreements around around those issues to make sure that you can have the economic growth and take care of those community concerns, and I still believe that I still believe that was projects on Long Island. And I believe that would. Amazon as well that if the company would come back, we could get people around the table and figure these things out, so the opposition's understandable. But I didn't think it was insurmountable. So what do you think the chances are that we could get this deal back on track? You know? I don't know. I I will say this. You know, I'm not at that level in the room. Jeff Bezos, doesn't know who I am. And but look, I certainly we wanted to make sure you're in case anyone was looking at there are senators from Long Island who believe in this project and who wants to support it in any way, we can going forward. And that's what we put out yesterday. Saying look, we don't know what's real. Or what's not in terms of how close to anything is to Q opening back up again. But in case, it is if you're ready to support it, and and so we hope it has that positive impact. Okay. Well, certainly interesting times up there in Albany. And it's you know, it's never dull. Senator. Thank you very much for your time. I appreciate it and have yourself a good weekend. Speaking with you after the budget, and we'll see how much we were able to accomplish the long islanders in a positive that we're going to be able to do some some good things.

"So that's just me being a math geek, Stephen. But basically that's the fare increase they've enacted. How about the toll for drivers it varies depending on the bridge and whatnot. But I can assure drivers that none of the tolls are anywhere even close to a dollar. I think seventy four seventy three cents is the highest mostly it's ten cents thirty cents twenty cents. I don't think you'll exactly you know, hurt at the end of the month with that only half the MTA's operating budget comes from fares and tolls where where does the rest come from? And did the MTA boy do anything to get more into those streams? No, they did not certainly, you know, they get some money from ad revenue. You know, there are expenses from taxes and whatnot. But they did not address any of the other sort of long-term needs what they're really banking on which I know you're going to get to shortly is congestion pricing. That's the word on their tongues. Right now, the heads of the MTA are up in Albany this week there. They'll be there next week pushing until April first to really hammer home to state legislators why they need congestion pricing. Like, you said, it doesn't even cover their operating expenses this congestion pricing stuff is for their capital needs the big projects. But it's true. The operating deficit is only growing and one thing that should be noted Brian is they didn't quite dwell on it too much but ridership is more or less at twenty fifteen levels. It hasn't been going up. It's only been creeping down bus ridership is plummeting. It's I don't have the number in front of me. But it's double digits. It's really something. And it certainly, you know, there's lots of reasons we can point to maybe it's maybe it's the terrible service on the weekends and evenings that's leading to the drop. But. Weekday commuting is pretty steady, but weekends and nights are just going down there congestion pricing plan as proposed would try charge drivers for coming into the central business district below sixty first street in Manhattan, Long Island, Democrats in the state Senate say that plan doesn't do enough for Long Island railroad riders compared to city subway users. Here's Senator Todd Kaminsky who represents Nassau County if we are asking long islanders to get out of their cars and to take mass transit. We wanna know that Long Island railroad and other forms of mass transit are going to be dependable. And the Senate leader. Andrea Stewart cousins says yeah, the islands needs also have to be met. So is the Long Island delegation asking for something specific. I don't know if they're asking for something in writing like, we want more trains more, you know, our our projects done faster. But just in response to what their concerns are. The governor's office emailed me to say, hey, nothing's been decided yet what to do about Long Island. We haven't even brought it up yet. So he's not dismissing them outright. He's just saying. Well, we haven't decided where the money will go although to be fair whenever the MTA's in Albany in hearings. All they talk about is this money would be used for improving the subways. They they don't say improving all service. They're very specific. It's the subways interesting and the press we got press release. We got on Tuesday said improvements to the system would be funded by a congestion pricing plan with the press. Release calls a sorry for cars entering below sixty first street into the central business district. What the press release called by its initials, the CBD not to be. Infused with another CBD. Yes. Because also funded by a new cannabis tax. So we could say the subways would be funded by CBD and CBD. Sure. The also changes the central business district earlier congestion pricing plans had put it much higher like in the nineties. So it's interesting. They're they're lowering it a couple blocks only the cannabis sold in the city the taxes from sales. Elsewhere would be used for other things is a clear it's not clear, but certainly we'd what is clear is a lot of lawmakers also had their eyes on that pot of money so to speak so. You know, it's interesting that they tack that on I think that'll make it an even more maybe difficult pill to swallow or difficult thing to pass if there's gonna be a cannabis tax and congestion pricing to fulfil the financial goals that the governor the mayor laying out there's one additional tax that's being proposed, and that's an internet tax tax the internet. In some new way than it's already taxed, I guess, we will we will find out as they go forward with that. There's also a plan to replace the metro cards starting in may on a stretch of the four five and six lines from Grand Central to the Barclay center. I guess if you enter at any of those stations on the four or five or six between Grand Central and Barclays starting sometime in may use this new system have they described it has not been there's been a full roll out there sort of been a. You know, a nice image that come out, they call it. The Omni cool black background with white letters. And this is going to be some sort of card. I know they've been talking about it for a very long time working on the technology. If you're actually at thirty fourth street, and I believe south street seaport. Maybe they've started to install some machines. And I've there's always tweets like, what is this machine is this is this the contactless fare payment system. Yes, they're they're rolling it out testing it slowly. And like you said, they're they're moving forward now with this plan and at some point there will be a iphone or smartphone connected way to pay for your metro card. But this is the slow roll out. We got the hint of it this week. But no details. Do you have a sense? As transit reporter leather the politics are aligning differently. This time for congestion pricing. And that it might actually get through. I mean in Albany. It's very hard to say like you already mentioned there's opposition from Long Island. There's opposition from some members from Staten Island, queens. I think that's consistent. What is new this time is that the mayor is on board. I don't recall he was soon giving such full throated endorsement of the governor's plan last time previously the mayor had called for a millionaires tax to fund the subways. And and for some reason he still mentions it he's still sees that as some sort of future plan. But for now, he is you know, on the governor's bandwagon four congestion pricing for the city as a way to fund the subways and on Wednesday. The mayor rode the subway to sell riders on congestion pricing, which he used to oppose cameras, of course, captured the mayor who is known for traveling around the city in a black SUV handing out flyers in this case at a station in Brooklyn here, he is telling reporters what he learned from that experience a lot of.
