"Five thirty Friday afternoon. Lynn sweet is the Washington DC bureau chief for the Chicago, sometimes a columnist for the hill also writes for the Huffington Post from time to time, and she is a past president of the Washington Press Club and still a member of the gridiron club in DC. And it's always great to talk to her. I in reading your piece today in the sun times. I maybe it was yesterday. And good afternoon. And thanks for joining us. I I knew Bernie Sanders had gone to the university of Chicago. But I didn't realize he spent as much time here in Chicago as he did. And now he's coming back. He's going to be a navy pier. Against the Sunday to tout his Chicago and Hyde Park roots? Right. And he's starting also just for your readers. Now. I don't work at post or the hill. I don't know where I know that's out there. But I just wanna just wanna make it clear to everybody. I m I make my living in Chicago Sun-Times those other publications sorry about that the Interweb led me down that path. Well, anyway, anyway. Visit is to repeat for people who might have forgotten whose biography? On saturday. He's he he grew up in New York. He went for his first year of college to Brooklyn college. So he's going to have a rally Saturday at Brooklyn college, and then comes to Chicago on Sunday where he had a lot of formative political experiences. He wants, you know, he was involved in the civil rights movement in the air were were a lot of students especially were involved in trying to desegregate housing and schools in Chicago and he lives in Hyde Park for a few years. So really held a true Chicago time, and it is the very first public appearance of a candidate in the twenty in Chicago and the twenty twenty political credential cycle will he make an endorsement of light footer preckwinkle. No, he won't let me let this is so timely. I know because we just had the elections. So our listeners now four years ago Verney endorsed now congressman Hayes his chewy Garcia. And as we all know Garcia lost in his race to manual. So I think there's a few reasons why Sanders is not endorsing one both candidates are progressive that wasn't the case for years ago. Also in twenty fifteen Bernie was traveling around the country trying to pick up chicks in the sense of what was going to end up his presidential run. Now. Why would he want to get involved in a will be a very heated Chicago mayoral race? And maybe make some enemies when he's going to be coming back here in March twenty twenty with many other Democrats trying to pick up delegates Lynn sweet from discography. Sometimes is here. What is his reluctance as far as disclosing his taxes? It seems like he'd be a guy out in front of that. Well, I must say in my interview with the only part where I got a little sense of pushback is when I trust him on. What is hang up was because he does position him himself. If the bub the fray, and as and as somebody who comes out of it's more transparent wing of government. So he says they're going to be very boring when we get it. Well, then fine. I don't care as as we know. Everyone listening the point of disclosure of your tax returns is just to tell us what it is. Or it's not boring is not an issue. And he he made it look like, well and his wife does his taxes, and it takes a long time. He's got to be one of the least he's ESP one of the least wealthy members. The US Senate no actually hit that may not be true. His wife had a job running a college in in Vermont, and he had a book deal. So you might have some assets. His I believe there will. Be something. There will be Donald Trump. Area Pritzker area. Four Lynn sweet are any of your democratic sources in DC worried about the worried about the party and the presidential nominee the presidential contenders. Just taking the the party so far to the left that most of America will say, whoa. I don't think. So. Well, I don't I think it will be a redefinition maybe how far leftist too far left and the main concern of Democrats is to defeat Donald Trump and it's big democratic field. Everybody is running further about even even people who are seen as the more centrist is Amy klobuchar. By the way, is a graduate of university of Chicago law school, everybody is of the left Republicans are going to say that of the democrat nominee. Try no matter who is the nominee. I noticed that. The Democrats are or I'm sorry. The republicans. I've listened listening to Larry cudlow today at CPAC saying, socialism, socialism, socialism, socialism. So obviously they're drilling down on that right now. Socialism. Isn't the dirty words? You have Democrats it used to be and the the primary process is one where it may end up with a candidate who represents after the Democratic Party. It's a big field now and more people are getting in. And I don't know how you the moment you exclude any one on it. But what Kudlow says, what Trump says Democrats have demonized have been demonized for years as socialists. It doesn't matter at this stage. What their tax going to be? It's like demonizing Nancy Pelosi. So what you do is just like, you know, Republicans do this in an episode manner. You run to the fringes for the primaries and you pivot back to the center for the election. Well, that's kinda one quick point. If I may. I wonder when you talk about socialism, some of this is what I hope I could do it by being on a show like this is a little bit at civic education here Medicare your listeners, whether they're left right central whether they're supportive of Trump or any one else as we go forward in this election Medicare is the way almost every senior in the United States gets their healthcare. It's a lot of satisfaction with Medicare, and that is a program administered by the government, but let's go to your private doctor. Remember remember joke. That's what you get your government hands. Get your government hands off my Medicare. Yeah. And then until you understand what it is that it's a program. Everyone chips in and makes guarantees that. When you're a senior you're going to have access to medicine. Well, they'll tell you this obviously going to going to be a nasty word through this next cycle. And that's socialism. Lynn sweet thanks much for your time. Nice talking to you this time of day. And we'll have you back. I'm sure thanks so much Lynn sweet from the Chicago sun. Join us here.

"He was escorted out of a Trump press conference. He claims to speak for the illegal aliens while he was born in Mexico, but he's been a US citizen for twenty years. He's called President Trump all sorts of names dictator the least of them. He's talked about Trump as using his powers wrongly. He's talked about Trump as if he was Hitler. That's what the left does. Well, he got a little taste of what he's been talking about. And not from Donald Trump. Hohaia Rama's went down to introduce to interview the leader of Venezuela. As you know, there is a revolution going on in Venezuela mother. Oh, the socialist dictator there. As Roma's mother. Oh, by the way, they were sending aid in across a bridge from Columbia, the Venezuelan people are literally when people use literally they don't usually mean, literally. You will hear people say. It's literally raining cats dogs, if it's literally raining cats and dogs you walk outside with a net, and you have some cats and dogs in your net. That's what literally means. I'm literally starving. If you're literally starving that means if I step back and wet a little bit. You're going to die. Hayes literally Hitler that's impossible Hitler's been dead for many years. You think he's been dead? I'd argue probably about seventy four seventy five. But even if you think he survived probably seventy five years later, plus the you was at that time probably didn't make it that long. And if you wanna really funny bit on that imagine Hitler being funny. That's the point of his bit Bill Burr. Listen to Bill Burs Netflix special. No, you shouldn't be able to laugh about Hitler. But that's his whole point. Is that comedy should make you laugh about things that make you uncomfortable? Jose Ramos headed down to Venezuela. They were in Caracas. They were there to interview nNcholas mother widow, and they showed him footage. Of the Venezuelan version modern version of a food truck people eating out of the back of a garbage truck folks, I've been to some very poor countries. There's plenty of wealth in India. But there are parts of India where people are as poor as you'll find. I've been to parts of Africa where you see hunger result in a distended belly. It's one of the most painful things to watch is to realize that a child doesn't have a swollen belly from eating too much. But from the extreme effects of eating too little. Parts of this world outside the United States where this is commonplace. It's painful, it's awful. Venezuela was never expected to be a country that would suffer this way. Venezuela is a once proud very wealthy country. It was the gym of South America. Their oil reserves led them to develop other industries. Good, universities, good, education, fine, culture, tourism, fashion, literature. Venezuela was a beacon in South America. Socialism crippled that country a tyrannical dictator. Name Hugo Chavez, and now his successor nNcholas mother. Although the people there have those that can have fled those that have remained or wailing in the streets. There are angry and the reason for revolution in a once peaceful country by a very peaceful people is at some point you have nothing left to lose. When your mother dies in your father dies and nothing's about to change. Yeah. You're going to take to the streets and throw rocks at armed guards and tanks, which is what they've been doing. So they show mother. Oh, this video footage of the Venezuelan people reduced to eating food out of the back of a garbage truck. Was not happy. So he called in his goons and he detained the crew including hor. Hey ramos. The six person team was held for more than two hours in the mid of Flores palace after modo said he didn't like the questions they asked him. Ramos told reporters after arriving back at his Caracas hotel, which was surrounded by armed intelligence agents. Now, this is a guy who claimed that Trump was out to get him and Trump treated him unfairly. This is a man of the left. He goes down to Venezuela and shows him what we can only assume I I'm not assuming I'm not suggesting that Horam made this footage up. He didn't hire actors to eat food out of the back of a dump truck because they pretending to be hungry. Smearing. Chimney soot on them to look poor and bedraggled now, he just revealed to the president to the dictator what's going on in your country and asked him questions about it. See this is the weird world where I have to defend or at least explain or hey Ramos who I despise. I think he's a clown. Well, Ramos was detained and kicked out of the country. As was his film crew for the crime. If you will of showing the president footage of poor people in this country. And I bet if you were to go person to person I haven't seen the footage of just read about about. If you go person to person people digging food out of there. They're probably the most the more resourceful. Probably some stockbrokers lawyers. Maybe a few doctors university professors in there. Probably a few folks that were in favor of socialism at one point probably a few folks that thought equality was a good thing. Well, you got equality bubble. You got the equality of everybody starving. Not just a few. You got the equality of lack of opportunity. That's what social socialism looks like friends. Yeah. Yeah. You're equal equally poor equally destitute equally without any opportunity because socialism is never just an economic philosophy because in order to implement socialism. You have to have the means of control because you see if you allow anyone to open a bakery. And ten bakeries spring up. Even if the government gives them the money to get started, even if the government regulates them equally at some point one of the ten is going to figure out a way to make a better bun. And that one is going to figure out if I stay open one hour, two hours, three hours, four hours later, I can sell more and one of them is going to figure out a way to make the same better bun cheaper. And he's going to figure out a way to improve the customer experience, and he's going to grow in wealth, and those that aren't very good, and sir stale bonds and closed for most of the day. They're going to close up and when that happens they're going to demand from the rich guy. Hey, I want some of the money. He's making he's making more than I am. I'm jealous and socialism's about jealousy. So knock us all back down to serving stale buns. Socialism Lynn's itself, and we'll always end up at a dicta- to'real regime in the end. And that's when the American left, Bernie Sanders and Alexandria, Cossio Cortez will say, no, no that wasn't socialism. That was socialism.
