Maryland officials to remember longtime Senate president Mike Miller
"Of longtime Maryland Senate President Mike Miller is in the state house in Annapolis now, and people are pouring into the rotunda to say their goodbyes and pay their respects to a man who was a giant in Maryland politics. W T. O P S John Dominus there. Mike was a wonderful, wonderful human being Maryland Congressman Steny Hoyer even when he crossed them. Or they crossed him to their peril. It was a tough a tough consequence. When you cross Michael, he was tough bill signings was always fun for us because we sit there and just joke. I mean, the stuff he would say about people. Lord have mercy. This man, former Lieutenant Governor, Michael Steele, talking about memories of those times when legislation became law every once in a while, the governor would look over the two of us and like what? You two behave all Marylanders, whether you Considered him too conservative, too. Liberal Congressman Jamie Raskin served with Miller in the state Senate, too.

Coaching search updates: Kevin Steele the favorite at Auburn
"Obviously we're in the middle. Coaching carousel to and i think the most interesting one right now is auburn I think they spent twenty one point. Five million dollars to buy out gus malzahn. We could argue whether he should have been fired or not the end of the day. He lost the momentum there and they the boosters put the you know got out the hat and collected the money and they fired him. So you think okay. You're gonna fire Coach gus malzahn. All that money. You're going to want to go out and get like the splashes possible coach. You can get tell us who's actually leading the coaching search right now as we reported this morning. That sources are telling me that the front runner for this job right now is defensive coordinator kevin steele and while that may blow some people's minds. He has some very very influential people at auburn who are big believers in him and in his corner at auburn. Especially that matters right so look We have a story up but the athletic now about who's in the mix there and the ones. I think one of the people who is really a big contender against kevin steele on this front is lane. Kiffin at ole miss But i think he would have a hard time turning that job down. I think he's obviously a big name. Now he's foreign four. It's it's interesting in that. I think a saturday's game between ole miss and lsu doesn't mean a whole heck of a lot. You know outside of those two programs. But i think it may may need a little bit of something potentially at auburn as crazy as it sounds because for some people at auburn i think they could shape it and saying all right kevin steele dreadful run as the head coach at baylor twenty. Plus years ago he was one and thirty one in big twelve. Play at baylor is a long time ago but people. I've talked to down there have made the case where you know what at had a bad record. The first time he was a head coach and he just won a national title a year ago. And my my counter. That was well. He did have to times as interim pretty lengthy runs where he was at least able to show people he's evolved and grown and those people said look a people at auburn feel like kevin steele's been the guy who's hold it together for them the last few years he is very well respected within the scc And so also know how. Attractive is lane to auburn. He did a really good job at fau their foreign You know if he loses to. Lsu's not very good this year. He's foreign five. I think probably diminishes a little bit No its first year. It wasn't like anybody expected out all messed great. But he's definitely a candidate As billy napier from louisiana Maybe who freezes is somebody that that auburn would push for. I think and you still have steve sarkisian there. You know also in the state of alabama So it's a really interesting. Search in auburn is wildly unpredictable. What does but From what i heard they would love to have a coach Decided upon by the beginning of next week
Georgia Senate debates make headlines ahead of runoff
"This is the runoff debate for the us. Senate seat currently held by senator. David purdue georgia the candidates are in alphabetical order. Democrat jon ossoff he is. Ceo of insight twu. I republican david. Perdue has served in the us senate since two thousand fifteen before his election. He sat on the board of five. Major corporations and co founded purdue partners global trading company. Senator purdue declined to participate in this debate and is represented by an empty podium. What could be more than the read off the bio of an empty podium. The other republican running and one of georgia's runoff elections next month did show up for debate on sunday. Senator kelly leffler was asked about trump's false claim that the election was somehow raked. Do you stand by his narrative that the election was rigged and you support his demand. That governor camp to call a special session to seek to overturn those results. I i want to thank the atlanta press club for hosting this important debate and look. It's vitally important that georgians trust our election process and the president has every right to every legal recourse. And that's what's taking place. Did you believe the election was rigged. Look greg it's very clear that there were issues in this election. Still with us kurt anderson. Michael steele kurt will call that a non answer from the incumbent. Senator should democrats celebrate the fact kurt. That trump plans to travel to georgia again. Because he's so hard wired to talk about his grievances. Well now we had. I think today the third a recant though. The third count certified And showing the joe biden won the state by twelve thousand bucks. I guess because of course his his line on election fraud. So-called does not change. There is not new information. It's the same. He's got the same five seventy eight minutes of material that he's simply goes through again and again and it kind of random order. I guess he'll do that again. In georgia i mean it's meaningful of course because the the the strange line that the republicans are trying to walk in georgia is to say this was a totally phony election rigged dominion blobby blobby block conspiracy theory but you got there and vote and make sure these these two senators win to keep the firewall against by the way because there might not be a donald trump president. But there's gonna be because here's here's the president who hasn't given up yet it's madness and hand and that that the shot you showed of course of of the purdue loose the debate john asa as you say is is just politics imitates comedy life imitates art. It's unbelievable but this is where we are and and again. I mean the fact that with the chili lawford debate With reverend work. I mean the fact that she had to say thirteen times rather than the answering a question about him just your liberal radical euro liberal radical and then the non answer about whether or not this debate of whether or not the election was legitimate and joe biden. One georgia again she. She used literally the same words over and over when she was asked the question and reacted the you know. So it's one thing to to deny reality. Which is the now the necessary stock in trade of the republican party under donald trump. But you think they would come up with slightly more fluent ways to restate their unwillingness to admit the plain facts and playing truth of the outcome of this election. Michael steele do you think. Mitch mcconnell is worried about georgia. Yes i think he is. I and i think he should be well over. A million votes ballots had been requested. A vote by mail ballots been requested as so far the deadline. Was i believe monday To register to vote For the special election and by all accounts The democrats are are prepared to go in a state that they won at the presidential level in a state they should not have one at the presidential level because it is georgia but it also speaks to. What is a growing trend. Line brian. That we've talked about before that is starting to sweep in areas that were once You know sacred gap ground for republicans at election time. Texas georgia north carolina. Virginia was once in that in that. Great pantheon of republican safehouses. That's no longer the case. So as mcconnell looks around the landscape the last great the gateway to republican success runs through georgia and guess what at least one of those gates are closed and the eggs trying to prevent the other one from closing on them. And that's what this election's going to be about on january fifth

"Someone's hiding behind but my religious beliefs tell me a pro-life be can't sell you a piece of cake or whatever it is and that's an interesting us an interesting point because i think this is where again you know for your audience to know i eh again very a very strong pro-life this is my personal choice. Matching that my you know. My you know my own personal journey. I've never tried to impose it on anyone. I've always tried to talk it out with everyone number one but number two. This is where i think. A lot of folks in my party get stuck. They're very quick to tell you that they should. They have the right to choose whether or not they own a firearm. Oh i mean and they don't recognize your right to make a different choice for yourself in terms of whether it's life or something else right and so that's that's what what has happened when you introduce politics and religion in the same bucket. This is the bullshit that you get and it. It becomes a completed nightmare where everyone becomes self righteous asshole. Great tainting the terms on which you live your life now to its founding roots. The republican party has always had two strings that drove it. one was liberty and the other was libertarian. It's all about the sense of freedom and that we will have that again going back to government and all these other things have no space to tell you how to live your life. So that's when you look at the republicans up to probably nineteen eighty right what you saw republicans. Who were they would give you hell on on finances and government spending but on the social stuff they were largely innocuous on the war you know they. They weren't out there. You know civil rights. Yes because that was about what liberty right. I so when you mu off of those things into a space where decisions are made at the granular level in a very personal way by individuals. You have to tread carefully if you have to tread there at all. And i don't believe that there are many circumstances in which y- either one of you get to tell me how to live my life and i don't care what role you play in society right but we're now in that space and so the question becomes. How do we extract ourselves. Look i firmly believe going back again to the topic of divorce. I know we didn't want this to be divorced abortion discussion. It's an abortion palooza. If you start from the notion that everyone's going to have one Then which is just wrong because right now we've seen we've seen it. We've seen the truth of where we are on this issue It is it has decreased significantly. Sorry about that. Are you sexy texts right now. I probably i'll let you mike tyson Oh hot mama want With these but these but these issues like this are such that they we. Don't come together around them. We drive ourselves apart and we don't actually try to work to a space where we recognize the very delicate balance between your behavior in and what the society expects and that is a very delicate balance. Ended something going back to the the biblical tax That that you know. Christ himself dealt with the woman who was brought to him to be stoned for adultery. He could very easily have condemned because the law prescribed it. He knew rising right. You can't be all. I have grown even building. Wasn't that was what it was about. The wasn't with the mission was about. And that's and he tried to. He tried to draw that separation in the ultimate test. So who's had is on this coin. Caesar so you saying we shouldn't pay taxes. No give the caesar. What is caesar. give to. God what has got. That was the clear line. And that's kind of been the line that i've used in my public impersonal. I'm and i think we we're bright with you that for sure before we let you go go the i wanna know what you think about fox news fox news is obviously rotted piece of trash in. Yeah they ruined republicans. Don't you think well. I worked at fox with two years. I was an analyst at fox after I left The public services lieutenant governor of maryland. I was there for two years so it was very different place than it is today for. Shore yeah there. There have been some really cold at times calculations made about how they would deliver the news and in fact it wasn't really worth delivering. The news as opposed to just delivering propaganda. And i've never understood why. Roger ailes wanted to go down that particular road particularly given the fact that he he came out of msnbc He came out of a very different space But you realize it was about. Hey the benjamins Monitor i could monetize emotion so i can monetize your fears. I can monetize your hatreds ikea monetize your anger and you see that. Now when i listen to guys like tucker carlson i eat i just i just sit there and go. You went of shit. And and it's just it's just and that that would be the equivalent of of kind of having a laxative. But anyway yeah they have. They have done. I think a lot of damage to the discourse. And here's funny ironic part here. We are for years later and the guy that they propped up the guy that they promoted the guy that they shield for every day. Twenty four hours. A day is now beating shout of them saying. Don't go to fox go to own this. Why because he's now going to go off his start his own media thing rain and he wants to take that audit. He doesn't care about five. It was a tool that was used. They got played and punk for four years. Everybody on that set on those sets sat there and just said the most inane gama stuff in a green with donald trump. They would call him up. He would come on the air for what was supposed to be a five minute view and it would go for an hour right. Yeah saying this stuff and here they are now four years later. The gun see ya. Thanks for the memories. i need to ask. Okay okay i ask it. And then we have to let him go because he needs to make make his coins okay. I got a card up some extra time. I gotta love caught me. Thank you called sir. Every second of the day sort of called the lady. I'm like thing now. In our opinion there's so many disgusting worthless. Republicans in congress. Right now ted cruz marco rubio nunez matt gaetz doug collins jim jordan you know. These guys are douche bags so we need to know which ones if any do you like and we need to know who you think. The most embarrassing republican is right. Now go i really would have messed my. I mean just gates alone. Let's just talk about him. You can't there's gotta be no loyalty to that guy can't be nothing redeeming their thank. You know look. We know who the players are disappointing lindsay gates short. Mitch mcconnell i do. I do and i actually i like. I like lindsey too. I think that's really the the the frustrating thing for me is i know. These guys don't believe ninety nine percent of the ship that they've been schilling for the last four years and you know how you know that. Listen to what they said in the republican primary and even after he got the nomination that's how they really feel about this guy. You know you don't you. Don't you know say that about the nominee of the party unless you really feel that way about the nominee of the party right so to all of a sudden make the one eighty and kinda start driving down the golf course with donald trump to me is is not just. The height of hypocrisy is just disappeared. You remember remember. Republican phone in the dog when i when i look at lindsay. That's what i just just the disappointment. So these guys are doing. They're doing what they think they need to do. To survive in the land of trump. what. I what. I contend is the thing you're doing is not one of survival it is actually killing you. It is sucking away your credibility it is sucking away your viability and it is it is diminishing whatever form or degree of leadership you think you have because after trump is gone and he wipes your ass off the bottom of his shoe he will have nothing to do with you. Accept tweet about you or tweet at you if you dare to raise up and try to be a leader again. That's what we are. Michael steele shoutout to kate for tricking you into doing this part of house. First of all these elise. Thank you tell our listeners where they control you. Think you've got a few more than fourteen you'll like.

"What's the right at the end of the day at the end of the day. There's not a piece of legislation that you can write or prescribe that will require any individual male or female to behave in a way other than how they ultimately decide to behave. So i want if. I want to keep my child. I will keep my child if i don't i won't that's right now. How do we know this. How do we know this. Because the lord. God almighty gave us ten commandments. He didn't write a thousand page book. Regulations and laws. It was tim ten things to tablets right and they were very specific. So that's why i want to give republicans I wanna give. I wanna take that out. I wanna become pro-life because the who cares what people will do it illegally. Who just like drugs just like reagan out but my my point is my point is the one thing that as as you know as a as a catholic and and my faith tradition and and how i was raised and how i've come to look at these things knowing A number of women in my life who've had to confront this issue. When i was in the seminary i had the opportunity to Council if you will someone on this very subject and the reality of it. The reality for me is in. I realized in those in that very quiet moment two very important things one. This issue is all about listening. It is not about dictating terms. It is now about trying to create an outcome. So you have to start from that position because the individual in that situation in the first instance wants to talk it out wants to be able to express the confusion the frustration the anger the happiness. The all of those emotions. So you've gotta listen and the second thing is at the end of the day she's gonna do whatever the hell she wants to do. She's going to act in our own best interest as so long if you can and this is what i'm getting to the law has to and this is why this is where i come down on the issue of roe versus wade. I think it was a law. That was prematurely. Decided by the supreme court not for right or wrong. It just should've left it alone and let the states work through it. You would have probably had a hodgepodge. A patchwork of state some saying it's okay like struts pot like a right -actly exactly end against berg said that too. I think he has that opinion to or she did that. She was absolutely right it with. That's the one thing if you go back in as a woman who was very much. A pro choice advocate and supporter and understood what roe versus wade was about. She would be the first to tell you. It was premature. It came to the court too soon. While she enlargement wasn't she big on like evolution. Yeah she was big on evolution of law and and people log never had the time the chance to evolve in the states. Well i'm so that's and that's how we wind up. That's how we wind up in. This pitched battle over this issue and the person who gets lost in my view is the woman. How do we get religious people to the democratic party. What what. Why aren't they there. What's stopping them or they aren't there in many many reasons for many cases for many reasons on this issue all right. So let me give you an example of why it's difficult issue. So i and tom perez the dnc. And i've known each other longtime. We're good buddies. I have always been not just a private public supporter and advocate for him For every appointment he's had. I've endorsed that import appointment And of taking a lot of crap for supporting a democrat. Who's being appointed to secretary. Fill in the blank. But he man but when he came chairman they did this pro. We did this program that was covered by c span. Believe and or on the panel. We're talking and he's newly minted chairman of on the former chairman and they thought it'd be kinda cute and fun to have the two of us talking about you know the state of play and After the election etc and this was literally shortly after he became chairman. And in the course of that in that discussion he said that in a nutshell that pro-life people were not welcome inside the democratic party. That you had to take a pro choice position and i sat there and i fold my arms. I looked at my said. That's that's interesting because you just told half the country don't even bother being a democrat. Yeah regard regardless of what they think about the environment. Health care jobs wall street. Any any of the rest of it. You've just told him on this one issue. Don't even bother and that's the problem with this discussion. Is that we you know. Look my my approach to it is always been To choose life that doesn't mean you have to force someone to keep that child what you tried to do. What what the bible. I think it. What christ specifically teaches us is to be an example so be an example of why you should choose life that means not just say you gotta have the baby. But then also make sure that there's a patchwork and a network of things that are available to help her. That family be supported. Because a lot of time this debate becomes. Have the kids. See you later right. Well as young girls and rape and incest and all of that exactly exactly jillian all all of these all of these situations Are very tough situations particularly when you get into the rape incest area you get into that space with a thirteen or fourteen young girl it just you just. There are no absolutes here. You just have to ready. I am ready to give it a hundred thousand years old. I can't have kids. Might shit has rotted. I wanna give it up. I want to get all the people. I want to take them. All innocent well ruined. Let's make it illegal people. Let's just do it live telling. I think it's a fuck tom perez. I'm taking this job. I'm running around the dancing. And i'm going to be like guess what everybody trained by. We went every election. Now i mean that's that's what you're the thing is that's not how elections one lost in the country. And i think i mean no one that was not a battle. Cry in this presidential wasn't a battlecry in eighteen democrat party well but you're doing okay. You have a wonderful your thirty third of the voters you throw the ball. But don't you think that. I think that pot with pro pro life is in the same bucket. Excuse me in the same bucket like A person who wants religious freedom or there's a religious aspect to it and i don't. it's not a dog. anyone that's religious. I think. I don't judge any of that but when you get into legislating someone be pro-life beep for life. No one's not for life. We just happened to take go down a different road of it and also when it comes to religious freedom. I think it's in the same bucket like you..

Kayleigh McEnany said Trump wasn't given an 'orderly transition of power' in 2016.
"Of Kayleigh Mcenany. I think it's a longer tape. It's like two minutes, right. I want to give Kayleigh mcenany the floor for one of the most comprehensive and should be viral clips. Of exactly how Democrats have been treating President Trump the last four years play tape. Talked about and identify the real potential for fraud with mass Valin voting also something that I would notice just we talked a lot about transfer of power in the election, and it's worth remembering that this president was never given an orderly transition of power. His presidency was never accepted. In fact, before theologian his election we know Crossfire Hurricane was launched by Peter struck to pursue a baseless allegations about the president's ties with Russia. That's before he was president, trying to subvert the will of the American people we know. In August, Peter Struck, wrote a text message about an insurance policy. Against a trump presidency once again, trying to silence the voice of the American people on in 2016, you know, in October that there was a five a warrant if ISA warrant taking out to spy on the Trump campaign And the American people spoke, and they spoke commandingly in electing President Trump. Despite all of the odds and what happened after he was elected, you had 70 lawmakers say We're not coming to his inauguration. Democratic lawmakers you had Elizabeth Warren saying. We're going to attempt to obstruct the trump transition by urging the Government Accountability Office to investigate the incoming trump transition. In January of that year. You had President Obama have a by the book meetings. Where they talked about the Logan Act, using that act to go after Lieutenant General Michael Flynn just before the inauguration, you had Buzzfeed promoting and publishing this bogus Steele dossier that's been widely debunked. I'm in for two years. You have the basis. Mueller investigation, which search for collusion, found none and exonerated President Trump

Michael Steele, former RNC chairman: 'Donald Trump is the biggest block to the American Dream'
"Michael steele. Welcome back to the podcast. It would not be election day without you here. I'm going to ask you the same question. I always ask you but instead of at the end of doing it at the beginning. Are you still a republican. Absolutely yes even more. So and why. Because i really appreciated the number of republicans who have served inside the administration who recently left the administration to come out and say that this is not us. This is not what republicanism is is not what conservatism is. They agreed to stand with us in the center of the town square to declare our independence of trumpism and our resiliency in fight against it. And i appreciate that. Because i know it's not easy. It's not an easy thing for them to do. So tells me that there is a vibrancy left inside the party. And i think that we will find more and more of that vibrancy in the weeks and months ahead now. Those means won't be a fight. There will be a fight. Trumpism does not leave his host that easily and we know that i've called for political. Ima and i think the party's gonna need one and very happy to administer it so obviously i ask you that question all the time this time. I've asked the question because you've joined the lincoln project which has become you know a hero to people within the democratic party and certainly a lot of people who don't like the president because it has been unsparing in its criticism to put it lightly. So let's talk about the lincoln project and why you decided to go from. Being part of the establishment of the republican party is a former chairman of the republican national committee to joining an outfit. That's doing everything to defeat the standard bearer of the party right now president trump. It wasn't as hard transition as well may think because if you follow any part of my political career in the dc area you realize establishment was not something you would use to describe me out your very own newspaper and i have had bills battles so for me. It wasn't that big a move. Because i've always argued against a lot of the very things that checked off a lot of the then tea party. Now trump kind of conservatism. Because it's not really borne out of anything anchored to some of the core. Things at the party's articulate. And he says this really annoyed annoyance with the system the way it is and so a lot of us have always come spoken to that and saw how it would ravage. The base in many respects transition was not that hard for me to move off of it but it was made even easier. By the fact i watched how family in different the party was to its own existence. How profoundly indifferent it was to its own value system and how profoundly indifferent it was to the men and women who have served honorably and well from president to the door knocker on a campaign carrying that banner raising high that gop flag only to have it pissed on by donald trump and those who enabled him inside the party so for me that moment joining the pirate ship as we like to call it over at the lincoln project was easy because it was hanging out with kindred spirit who understood what this fight was about. This is more than just. Oh trump trump is bad for america. This was there's a lot of stuff that's going on right now. In america that is bad for america and we wanted to show that and speak to it and the party labels did matters. So a susan collins and lindsey graham. We're going to get just as much of a hit as donald trump or stephen miller. So it's important to understand what this is about and certainly what it is not about it is about first and foremost country has always been that and will always be that. And as i think. Steve smith and read jalen and rick wilson and others have noted when we get beyond this cycle which we hope will will result in the election of joe biden then we will begin to dismantle the deconstruction of the administrative state. That was put in place by steve bannon and and ryan's pre-bus on behalf of this president and maybe bury it in salt the earth with it where it's buried so that we don't have to go down this road again and yet here. We are at a moment where the president still has a fifty fifty shot of being re elected president of the united states. I mean from your vantage point just as a political tactician what would it say to you about where we are as a country and who we are as people if president trump is reelected. And that's the core point. I'm glad you raised because at the end of the day. All of the mac nation politics aside this ultimatum about how people see themselves and how people see their future in how people regard the values and the principles in the ideals of a fledgling nation. We are still a fledgling nation. You considered a great nation of the world who've been around so five six times seven times as long as we have who've weather storms far worse than we weathered but you know we have that hit me yet. Knowing that history we still fall into some of those same troops in most same. Trappings and his does speaker lot. Jonathan about how we see ourselves. We have in some respect be combination of victims and we are so angry at other that we've been project back on cells victimhood meaning while i can't because of them i don't get because of them my son and my children won't because of them.

But this sounds like the score could have been done by John Carman. Saint something's the scares not so much in the same thing it has the same trope that the woman can't do anything by yourself. this does have James Webb Hornet. Really, young, he's thirty four in this film and he's playing a professor who is banging one of his students guy. I I'm sorry you have to see him that way. Yeah. The student he's banging is Elizabeth Cam and Elizabeth Kemp. Came back to play and the clairvoyant. Who has also directed by the same guy okay. The Director of this film is Armand. Mastroianni and K and Toyo- on the Sandwich. Isn't it? It's a double decker sandwich. Yeah. Is Married to Mary Elizabeth Master Antonio to This guy also directed Cameron's closet Oh that's another. Another way back when for me that was nineteen, eighty eight for Cameron's closet. I remember that I had the Fan Goria that I kind of talked about Cameron's closet and I was so excited to see it. Also get it confused with cellar dweller and I'm not real sure which one is which. I think I got confused with the woman in White Lady and The lady in White Yes lady and I love that mood. Are you talking about the one with Lukas Haas and yes yes. Yes. That was a great movie director also he did. the TV movie for the ring which I clicked on. Not the same guy so don't even. That was Natasha, Kinski and Michael York and a Danielle Steele. Oh my God how? Eighties. Possibly, get. That that's painful. Is Very painful that was actually nineteen, ninety six how really?

"So that's a great question and thought the main thing I want to do is make sure educators are at the table when making education related decisions there are many educators vying for seat in the State House, this fall, and so you know they range from high school teachers to elementary teachers to. People who work in workforce development people who were school leaders and superintendents, and we need to utilize all those voices at the table to make appropriate laws for North Carolina. The other thing we need to do is we need an overhaul of our curriculum and thankfully I have a PhD in curriculum and -struction. So there's this notion that you know people who do work in curriculum needs to help build the new curriculum along with other experts from across our state. There are some unique things and challenges about the North Carolina State. Curriculum. That we need to fix address but I want to use my experience in working in urban schools and suburban schools title one schools and non title, one schools to really bring a valued perspective to Raleigh. So we can turn the tide on some things that we should have years ago. There are also some definite changes we need to make him broadband access, and it needs to come from an educational perspective along with the infrastructure of utilities within our state and so working together collaboratively with those partners partners in facilities and management of. Resources and utilities, and all of those types of things. That's what I WANNA bring to the state house, and that's something that teachers and educators are very familiar. So that's the unique value I'll bring. That's you know a portion of it and I wanNA, make sure that something that we work on while I or when I'm elected to stay house. Yet swin. into another big issue in. in your district right now is the opioid crisis I. You know it's it's hit a lot of parts of the country hard on but especially in in your county, can you talk some about what that looks like on the ground and what you hope to do to address that? Yes. So what it looks like on the ground from a very practical perspective is it looks like you know schools manifest problems that are in society, and so it looks like kids being taken from their parents homes because the parents are addicted to opiates after having been prescribed opioids for various pain or pain management that. The experienced either from surgery or from past injury or something of that nature and so what we need to do is we actually need to slow down the prescription of opiates and when I say slow down I mean in a particular district and area within North Carolina opioid prescriptions are among some of the highest in the entire nation, and that's ridiculous. You know that tells us that we need to find some alternative forms of pain management that are accepted by insurance companies. So people feel comfortable trying other things and doing other things I'm not saying obviously that opioids are never the the right. Prescription they are in some cases. But when you have them being prescribed at levels that don't make sense according to experts and who have researched this, then we need to take a look at how they're being prescribed. So we need more accountability in the area of Pharmaceuticals and doctors prescribing opioids at such a high and alarming rate in North Carolina particularly incubators county and. In Congressional District Eight. When we see that oversight increase, I think we'll start to see less cases of opioid abuse and opioid crises which result in death after having been a principal dealing with the Department of Social Services Dealing with the displacement of children out of their parents homes after having found them in their homes on the floor literally almost dead but not quite. That's something that I'm very sensitive to because when you deal with the children who are victims of the OPIOID crisis, it makes you keenly aware of what needs to change. And you don't do you no wrong to the children of our nation because they will grow up and take care of us one day. So we must do right by those children. So me about voting in North Carolina, we're seeing early voting starting all over the country and just lines everywhere. I live on the south side of Chicago where there's no question you know who will get the vote and there are lines here to out the door. People voting. So you know what? What sort of early voting do you have a North Carolina. What does that look like or people excited to vote there? Yes I would say based on my experience today people are ecstatic. So today I was as a candidate. Always voting early on the first day and so in North Carolina the first day of voting early voting today October fifteenth. Through Halloween through October thirty first and literally in my county Cabrera County the polls are an every single day both Sundays both. Saturday's just every day until the thirty and that is exciting. Well, not only that. But what I saw was a long line of people who were willing and ready and able to wait and wait, and so they could cast their vote anxiously. Right I think people have been cooped up in their homes and they were just ready to get out and cast their votes. Those lines are also very consistent across North Carolina across small districts, small counties, and larger counties in urban areas, rural areas just every type of area you can imagine people are literally waiting in line. For hours, we waited for almost three hours, and so I know the excitement is they are and we're seeing that. So it's Oh my gosh, it's so exhilarating but I literally got in line at seven fifty five was out of line at about ten, fifty, ten forty and was able to you know help my family because they had some other challenges with their ballot. You know we were able to get that taken care of, but it was so exciting and people showed up they were just lines in there were lines and lines and I will tell you this I was number. So I got in line five minutes before they opened I was number two, hundred, fifty three when I voted. That's how many people were in line and it opened at eight am but the line had already circled the parking lot of the hotel where we had our early voting. Oh. My Gosh she really that is. That is I mean I wish that are voting was done in a way that was more efficient so that people didn't have to wait so long but I love that people are willing to votes to wait so long and that there's such an air of excitement around us so we have. Two and a half weeks until the final day of voting as we're calling now, not election day the final day of voting. And so how can our listeners help help you get the word out about your campaign what you know, what can we doing in these final weeks to make sure that you do win this seat? We have one strategy Kelly, and that is flushing people out of their homes. We need them to show a like the mice in Ratatouille. And as a mom, you know I've watched ready-to-eat probably eight hundred times as I'm sure. and. I've memorized it right and so you remember when it was time for the you know Jacques or whatever his name was to show up and cook, and he literally his whole staff had had quit you know and it was time for all of these people to show up to eat and he had no staff in the kitchen. So the mice came in and you know they all got sanitized and they know why? The dishes wash their hands, etc, and then they started working. That's what we need for the campaign. We need to literally flush people out of their home and it's going to out of their homes and it's going to be all on deck strategy. That strategy looks like this calling people who haven't voted yet, and so we're able to produce list every night at about three a m of all the voters who have voted it and haven't voted and so we're just GONNA continue to call them every day like, Hey, don't forget what's your plans to vote when are you gonNa vote and we know we're going to see. Great numbers tonight through tomorrow based on the lines we're seeing in media you know in media's coverage of the lines today across North Carolina. But we literally need people to help us flush people out of their homes and you can do that by signing up to virtually phone bank. You can also donate you know if you don't WanNa talk to people on the phone guess what someone else does help us guide them and help us pay them a small stipend so that they can make calls on your behalf and it's a two for one you get to donate and you get to take credit for someone making phone calls. The other thing is gone down to north. Carolina. If you WANNA make the drive south, guess what the weather's Great. It was seventy five degrees today cold. No Rain I. mean it was great weather come help us put some literature on People's doors who haven't voted yet. So they can have some material to go to the polls and make sure they vote all of those strategies help. But as rb GM gave her life for democracy and she worked up until the last day of her life on this earth, we can do more just as she did we can do more. So what more are you willing to do? So you can have the outcome you desire. On November fourth, it's time out for saying Oh these people don't care about me or these people are this or these people are that we'll guess what your these people if you sit at home and do.

"I'm super excited to talk to you. I. So I have lots of questions about north, Carolina and the district but let's start with just a little bit about you. Can you give us just a little intro about you and wire running for the North Carolina, House yes, sure. So first of all, thank you for this opportunity to come on your show I am. Amy Steel, as you mentioned I'm running for the North Carolina House of Representatives in district eighty two, which for those who are not quite familiar with north. Carolina geography it is close to Charlotte North Carolina so about two hours south of Raleigh about. Ten minutes north of Charlotte. So we are here in this great state and it is a swing state. So we're super excited about that but essentially, my background is in public education. I am a former Spanish teacher and school principal. So I've been a principal in elementary school, Middle School and an assistant principal in high school I've taught from two year olds all the way to high school seniors. So that's quite exciting in terms of my experience two. Year olds are very fun. My other background is that I've grown up in a military family. So I've traveled all around the world and was first introduced to the Department of Defense School System at the age of eight years old in Seagal me hard Japan. So a lot of my experience stems from my interactions with military based schools and a lot of schools at that point I attended about five schools in six years or sixty, five years I get confused but. A lot of schools nonetheless. So I grew up with love for public education So that's my background in general of from from a family perspective I do have five children on the Mama five amazing kids that came out of my body. And I like to say that because people are like there's no way you actually have five kids and I'm like, yeah, it's it's true and their. Trust me. Many people who have way more kids than I do but yes, Mama five wife to my husband's like. You know we've been married for twenty one years and We're on this journey of life together. So that's my background. Excellent. So North Carolina is a swing state as you mentioned, lots of important races going on the of course, the presidential race North Carolina could be the tipping point could be the tipping point in the US Senate but this district within this Steve. is also one of the very flippy district. So tell me a little bit about the district and and what you see going on in it and and this should be one of the best chances in the whole country to flip state legislative seat. Yes. So what we have faced in North Carolina in general is a terrible case of gerrymandering. Gerrymandering was so seis and so explicit that legislators drew maps that literally went down a street grab one house for one district, and then all the other neighbors in on the street went to another district. So the judge declared that the maps have been drawn with surgical precision. So the maps were ordered to be redrawn both congressionally and from a state legislative perspective, and so my particular district which Iran in the same district for the same office back in two thousand eighteen, it was about an are eleven between our nine in an are eleven at one point, but it was a red district and it's pretty urban ex urban lots of density housing. Areas that were very dense, but it also had a taste of rural America. lots of rural areas within the district, but lots of growth and development as well, and the county as a whole is divided into three different house districts, one Senate district, but for the State rather but those three house districts were so different. They're very different and my district happened to be the one that is on the northwestern side and so in twenty eighteen, it was. Terribly Gerrymander in two, thousand twenty, it's only mildly gerrymandered, but it's still you know drawn in a way that favors you know one person over the other. So that's essentially what the district my in terms of voting registrants about sixty nine percent of all registered voters in my district are Caucasian about twenty, two percent black and a five percent. Let's annex and all the rest are. Of some sort you know the district is pretty evenly split in terms of Republicans and Democrats but we have a large percentage of undecided voters, and so that's where the you know just the the range and. WHO's showing up for the election actually matters. So that's what we're experiencing. Yen in the primaries. In March, more Democrats turned out then Republicans in this district. Yes. That is the case and we we like to think that was because people were very excited and people are showing a sense of excitement but we also were calling people like crazy. We were knocking doors we were you know really going after the voters and saying, Hey, we're here remember we came to your house in two thousand, eighteen our back to say, hello, there's another election. So don't forget about US and I. Think, the voters made sure they showed up and. demonstrated. You know that they wanted their voices hurt. And of course, you haven't been able to go door to door this year because of the pens I make, but you have this great door knocking video. Tell. Me a little bit about how that came about and how you're sharing it. How you're making sure that people are are seeing that video. Absolutely. So one of the most amazing things about this cycle is that we've increased our digital mark more so than ever before and though we're able to really get to our voters and find them where they are on their devices right and we know that about seventy percent of digital or usage of digital devices has increased about seventy percent since cove it and so what we did was in my one of my video shoe, we when we were discussing kind of what? What messaging did we WANNA come this fall because we know that Cova does here and we're not gonNA be able to knock doors like we did in twenty eighteen and we knocked about eighteen thousand different times on doors. So we had an aggressive grassroots effort between eighteen. So in discussion with my very fabulous digital marketing consultant we came up with you know what would You say to voters who were new to your district because the district had been gerrymandered and the district had been redrawn. So because of that, I had at least twelve new precincts of voters whom I've never met before maybe from being their child principal or teacher, but essentially have never met them before from a voting perspective. So she asked to look straight into the camera and. Say, what would I say or say what I would say to those voters if I were showing up at their door so I became very excited and I just knocked at their door as if I was knocking on their door for real and that was the you know the creation or the beginning of the creation of the knock knock video. So what we did was we Actually sent that video from digital marketing perspective to all of the voters in that district, and we were able to see I'm ten thousand fool views of that video although we had only targeted about eighty, two, hundred voters whom we had information for. So what we know is that the video was watched multiple times by the same people because we only target eighty, two, hundred, hundred unique. Voters. So that's what we've done. We've used to circulate through digital means and of course, on facebook and twitter and all those normal spaces. So it's it's got some traction. We're in the hundred thousands now. So super excited about that video. Yeah that's fantastic. Life tertia pandemic and. And you get creative I like it. Right. So education is always a super important topic of course, but I think the pandemic has just highlighted how How uneven education is across the country, but even across a within states. How you know the any gaps that we have in our education are just exacerbated by the situation where in. So tell me what you would like to do with your education background bringing that to the State House in rally what you would like to have the state legislature doing to really address some of the challenges in education right now in North Carolina. Yes..

Max. Ah, let's Ah let's let's talk about Ah The blue color sort of mentality that we have in this city eyes that tied to the labour movement, you think? Yeah mean absolutely. I think that you know, you think about whether it's images presented in film. It's the Blues brothers, which obviously they're musicians. They do They do reference their union card. That will not be a one point them. Yeah, they D'oh They famously on wonderfully, You know, I think it is. It's a It's a part of. It's a part of the city's identity. And you know, I I e having only been been in here since the mid nineties. You know, a lot of that has changed. Fairly quickly. Do you think about what constitutes a blue collar job? Right? You go down to the Southeast side to see the U. S X Steel. You know they're still re working on that site. But there's no there's no labours. It's a park. Yes, yeah, Among other things you think of what constitutes A blue collar job. You think of kind of the concentration of steps over, um, near last Westside like Teamster City. Um and kind of like, where is those where those people laboring? You think about the actual numbers and they're they're fairly small. Um, you know you you still you still have, you know certain? Industries in the city. You know, I always tell people sick I owe still big bass for food production produces more pork rinds, and I didn't know that I didn't know that that's amazing. Yeah, they're they're still there Still the these moments. I mean, you know, you think of other things, which is a variety of trade agreements, etcetera, you know, to buy goodbye volume candy industry, right? Ferrara. Rocks, but they blow up the Brocks factory for one of the Batman am so some of those things that you consider candy, working blue collar and definitely were people working with their hands. But you know, the other kind of The other Those other jobs. A lot of them just changed. I think this will be a challenge for labor here. Going forward labor unions and see already you're you're you're not. You're not, you know, leaping out Citing necessarily been this government lack of intervention. Too much intervention. But you know, he going up against algorithms. You know what do you you're going up against APS. Yeah, that's that's the kind of That's the kind of harder endure another show, But I think that but I think it is. You know people were we seek it out. I mean, people wanted, you know, they want to experience that kind of That blue collar kind of experience, And I think it's hard. I mean, I know it's harder to find. Yeah, you know, you think about kind of whether its associations with people going to a tavern or whatever, you know 2nd 3rd shifters. I mean, there's a lot of There's a lot of change, even the kind of those the social spaces right now you're more likely to find expensive tasting menus on up top bar That's open. So I think there's that there's that kind of shift in the change and declined those in those those professions or they or they happen. They're kind of their hidden from us, right? I always tell people I play some fascinating which you asked me kind of that question about there's always something new. I had never walked on foot around Elk Grove Village. Some people listening probably know that L grow village has one of the world's largest industrial parks. Mathis, right, so there's work going on out there near O'Hare support. Various interested, but you know, we don't really see it. You know, it's not, you know. Men and women out there. You know whether it's your kind of performing manual labor, physical labor, you know, I think the fabric of the city has changed much as well. You think about you know, over a third of the city is Hispanic, Latino land Next, you know that that work has changed a lot. To you know, you might think of blue collar workers being landscapers gardeners. Um, yeah, I know people crave it. I mean, people, you know, it's such a big thing. And you know this so well to three movies to song. Um And you know some industries. It's still their food processing and a few other places, but, you know Now Steele still encounter people I've still encounter people who want to want to see a stillness still now something like that. It's like, well, that's that's really hard to find in the city limits. Um, but there certainly people You know those people working his people? There's people out there doing all these jobs and I think of wealth building trades, You know. So those air still really, um Those were still really well, boss places where he might be worked like that. But those things that you think of, you know, if you know more stockyards. Steel mills is kind of you know, you can sort of see some of the railroad stuff if you go down to South Lumber Street after from railroad. Yeah, Maybe that might be trash passing. So don't Please don't want anyone thinking, right? But you're certainly you know, you could get a little sense of that when you know when I was in Union station two days ago, jumping on the Amtrak cone off one and try again. Young. You see, you know some people people doing track work inside the station and things like that, so it's still It's still there. There's just a lot less of it. Yeah, it's true. It's true, but I mean, I think to the rest of the rest of the world. Chicago has a very, very blue collar. You know? Ah, representation, You know, I think it's a date. I think people outside of Chicago think of us is a very blue collar city. Yeah. Oh, absolutely. I think there's that people identify. It was like they had identified with the You know the blues or kind of Maureen. I'm kind of more contemporary, you know, Tanya, or common Um, and that kind of that's that's really part of the city's fabric.

The government had a much simpler way just. Tax The stuff that comes into the ports for a long time really the only way that they raised money was using tariff duties duties on imported goods. This is tax historian Joe, thorndike and tariffs are simple. Right? You send out a tax collector told the major ports ship pulls import us go through the manifests, check the cargo and you add up whatever you WANNA tax sugar guns, books simple. But there's one big problem with tariffs they fail you the one time you really really really need revenue tariff duties are great way to raise money as long as you're not fighting a war yet because someone's blocking airport right or sinking your ships on the way. News Yeah. And that that does tend to depress a little bit. So when in the United States do people start to think and talk about an income tax will you know the earliest? In American history that I know of comes during the war of eighteen twelve when the treasury secretary throws it out there it's it's really kind of a throw away in a report that he sends to Congress. You know, hey, we could consider taxing incomes but this suggestion during the war of eighteen twelve, it goes nowhere an income tax is actually a very complicated thing to pull off successfully there are three big obstacles to getting it. Right. The first obstacle is logistics like how do you make sure people pay a percentage of their income? Oh, it's enormously complicated because it really does come down to. The individual, who's filing this return, and that person we're going to expect them to begin with just to keep track of how much they're earning. Then expect a lot of honesty from them about reporting those records to the government and to make sure that they're actually doing the job you didn't have to create this huge administrative apparatus to go in and enforce it, and you have to give these people the power to dig through the personal financial records of every taxpayer, and that's usually pretty unappealing to tax payers and the government is not going to radically reform the tax code unless it has to. Unless, there's something incredibly expensive it needs to fund. This is how a lot of taxes come out. There's a war, and in fact, fifty years after the idea of the income taxes I floated such a war comes to pass the civil war. This is a very, very, very expensive warm Congress needs money to feed its soldiers by guns, cannon ships. So this time, it's not just one guy. Bringing up the income taxes a suggestion this time. Congress makes it law and even more importantly they come up with a way to enforce it Congress provides for the creation of the Bureau of internal. Revenue this is the first real income tax in the United States, but it doesn't look quite like the one we have today during the civil war only the wealthy had to pay income tax. And the government does this really very clever thing to get rich people to pay it. It makes tax returns public during the civil war anyone could go in and look up your income tax return or at least your report of how much you earn and the idea was that this would help improve compliance because your neighbor would see you driving around on your brand new plow and he'd. Say Wait a minute I that guy get all that money I'm going to see how much he reported on his income tax and they'd go in and they check it out and they could report to the agency and say, Hey, you know I. Don't think that this is the right number. This guy looks like he's living too large for this sort of an income they sort of conscripted. And made the tax collector. So who is living large in? Let's say Washington DC in eighteen, sixty four. Well, we pulled up a copy of the tax assessor sheets for DC, during the civil war and there happens to be a guy here Abraham. Lincoln. Address White House at the White House. Everyone knows where it is it's senator and and the taxes he paid I'm sure people were very interested in this one, thousand, two, hundred, ninety dollars. They're also entries here for restaurant owners for liquor dealers some guy lived on longboat may be in the Potomac River. It's clear from this list that people were paying taxes, the plan worked. Well, some people are paying taxes the north part of the country. Remember this is the civil war, the south. Also attempted an income tax attempted they had a much less effective, a tax system and their income tax was much less effective than the North's version. Is there a case to be made? The civil war was sort of an economic battle in the in the north was better at at that and raising money and and that's one reason at one. Oh, absolutely I mean taxes do have a lot to do with the. North. Winning the war. Not just taxes, but the North's ability to borrow money it. It just had a better economic foundation for fighting a big warlike that you know the income tax worked. So well during the war, you would think that the US government would want to keep it around I. Mean it's Nice to have extra money when you're actually rebuilding from the carnage and such but once the conflict ended, there was this big argument about whether to keep the. Income tax round or not, and now the income tax hits its second obstacle a legal obstacle. Remember how he said the income tax only hits the rich. Well, the rich did not like it and the rich have lawyers in eighteen ninety, five legal challenge to the income tax reaches the US Supreme Court here's economic historian John Steele Gordon. My great great uncle was one of the lead lawyers in that case and guess which side he was on. The trying to shoot down the income then you've got. Cable. He was a Morgan partner at five years later. The argument John Steele Gordon great great uncle made in court was that the income tax violated little document that we'd like to call the US Constitution here Ariba line to you. It says quote direct taxes shall be apportioned among the states according to their respective numbers. I will translate that for you if the federal government wants to raise money directly from people or property, then it has to divide the tax burden up equally Among the states according to their population. So if a state had ten percent of America's population, it should only have to pay about ten percent of the tax and the income tax wasn't taxing according to population it was taxing according to income. So the question before the Supreme Court is and as is often the case it's something kind of knowingly subtle and hard to follow. The question is, is the income tax eight direct tax. I stayed up late last night reading court documents. This is a huge rabbit hole of complicated things, but it comes down to this if any part of this income tax law passed by Congress, if any of the many taxes embedded inside considered a direct tax, then Congress did it wrong? The law is unconstitutional. That is the question that justices had to decide a very interesting thing happened in the Supreme Court. One justice was ill evacuate dying Justice Jackson from Tennessee who was argued before eight justices and they split four four as to whether or not the income tax was a direct tax and therefore unconstitutional. That's why we have an odd number of justices. He can't have a tire. Exactly. was. A four four time. The court decided that the case was simply too important to be tied, and so they haul justice Jackson out of his deathbed. Now odd number of justices and everybody knew that he was in favor of the income tax because he'd said. So publicly, Z. Really Dying Jesse really died two months later. So the lawyers re argue the case Justice Robert Jackson is. In the final days of his life is a pro income tax guy. So he's going to break the tie in favor of the income tax and the tie was broken case was decided five four. But the crazy thing is it was five four the other way it was a five four decision against the income tax. One of the other justices we don't know who switched his vote. and. So the tax was unconstitutional. No income tax. How do people reacted the time to this little intrigue Oh they've there would be a there was a lot of. In the papers about it, but the Supreme Court was silent as it so often is to what the internal workings we really don't know who who, really don't know who it but somebody's which their vote we just don't know. So there's this weird stretch in the middle of American history where the income tax has been ruled unconstitutional but this didn't in anyway settled the argument I mean, if anything the debate over income tax in America grew more heated. This is the time when a lot of big industrialists are getting filthy rich JP Morgan, Rockefeller Carnegie, and at this exact time, the nation has no income tax, the people who are not JP Morgan or Rockefeller Carnegie in the country. A lot of them feel those guys the rich need to bear more of the burden. So nearly twenty years after the income tax is ruled unconstitutional, we get an amendment to the Constitution the sixteen, th amendment ratified in nineteen thirteen a single sentence which begins the Congress shall have the power to lay and collect taxes on incomes just in time for another war World War One. So the income tax has cleared to hurdles so far logistics check legality check. The income tax needs one more thing to bring it into the modern age. One More L. Word Love the income tax of to this point has been a tax on the rich right everyone else was exempt in fact when they bring the income tax back after the constitutional amendment, less than two percent of the population has to pay. All this changes though with World War Two, the government needs more money and now ordinary folks are asked to pay again Joe Thorndike this is a is a real revolution because for most Americans, they've never had this kind of direct tax paying relationship with the federal government. You know they're paying excise taxes on alcohol tobacco or consumer goods but those things are are usually levied somewhere other than like on the consumer you know they're levied at the manufacturer level for the first time. Americans are sort of confronting the federal government as a tax collector and the middle. Class has never paid this tax before they not sure what to do a whole in nineteen forty-three show that one third to one half of people were unclear what

"On this dossier, and in particular on the four warrants that the dossier was used to obtain surveillance warrants against a trump aide Carter page in that report. He pointed out that Christopher Steele had relied primarily on one sub sourced for most of the claims that were contained in this dossier, so what was declassified on Friday was the FBI's interviews over three days in January, two, thousand, seventeen with that primary source, and what is remarkable. It's fifty seven pages of notes from these interviews and what isn't makes. Clear is that when the FBI finally and belatedly got around interviewing this primary sub source? There was no factual basis to any of the dossiers claims. The source said noted that up until. The time that Mr Steele asked him to look into some political reporting. He had mostly only provided business intelligence to Mr Steele that he was uncomfortable. Being asked to to look into questions about. Paul Manafort Donald Trump. He felt that he his friends and contacts were just too far removed to provide much of any information on this, but that he felt he needed. Needed to get back to steal with things, and so he basically just passed along a lot of gossip that he'd heard and Christopher Steele took this rumor and speculation and turn it into this supposed intelligence report, and ended up funneling it to the FBI, which ended up using it to get to surveil the trump campaign so i. it's more evidence. That the FBI. Should've called all of this off much earlier than it did. It knew already by January, February, twenty seventeen, even the trump administration was taking office. It had absolutely nothing to back up a suggestion of trump Russia collusion. And yet it doubled down and as we all know what the ended up in. Special, counsel, Bob Muller and two and a half more years of torture. And it seems strange to me. Bill that it took this long for us to get this far. I mean the steele dossier. was sort of discredited in dribs and drabs, and by now it seems seemingly nobody really takes it seriously anymore, but here we are, and where you know three and a half years in the president's term six months, or so from a presidential election, and now finally these documents are coming out. I mean. Why didn't the? Why didn't the administration get these out earlier? I I think that's. A good question and a fair question I picked. People are getting impatient. If what happened in two thousand sixteen is what we think happened that a group of unelected officials in the Justice Department and the FBI. Came together to try to sabotage the trump campaign. I mean that that's a serious as it gets and in doing so you know lied about what they were doing misrepresented themselves and so forth, and you know had Investigations for example. On the national security adviser that were that were illicit. That's a big deal. Normally I'm not a person who believes in criminal sanctions for political acts. I'd rather things be settled through the political process. which is what I think. The constitution favors, but I. it seems to me that if we're we're not going to have this again. Some people have to go to jail. I mean you can't have FBI agents, doctoring Pfizer requests, and so forth and expect it. No reorganization is going to stop that the only thing that's GonNa. Stop it as people see other guys going to jail and I. I don't know all the details, but it strikes me that this is probably what's taking so long that they're.

"That Putin's Darth vader was running Donald Trump's campaign and her hair was on fire telling anybody that would listen including Republicans so manafort coons operative and Ukraine was paid a ten million dollar a year contract track starting in two thousand six to further the Kremlin's interest and Ukraine and the West and business and media. So this was pretty big deal when he came over and it was stunning to see. Just how unprepared American media were at the time and the FBI. Just didn't Bob does anything. Yanukovych fled Ukraine in February February. Two thousand fourteen. He was overthrown in rare popular uprising. That was successful. Ukraine invited the FBI in to investigate to find the tens of billions of dollars that Yanukovych Sannikov agendas family stole from Ukraine people. If you're investigating UNA Kovic you're investigating the people around him including Manafort. Who was a longtime consultant? Who worked for for a decade or so yet? Coach built himself aver Siamak mansion complete with a private zoo a massive car collection a golf course sprawling marble halls paid for with stolen tax dollars the investigative journalists who helped expose his lavish lifestyles wells. The lifestyle of of some of his cronies. She was ran off the road one night at the end of December number and beaten and left for dead. Her face was so swollen. You couldn't recognize her anymore. That is what manafort aided he was an instrument of Kremlin aggression spreading the chroma corruption by helping consolidates power whether it's in Ukraine or in the United States who trump and his friends so manafort also represents the fact that the Kremlin clearly thinks that Russia is allowed to influence the domestic affairs of other countries but no one else can only Russia and if you dare to do that in Russia for instance they're going to retaliate. They're now calling. Any bloggers are journalists that have been paid by companies based abroad as foreign agents in his meeting with President Dolinsky of Ukraine in Paris. This week guten towards Alinsky. He needs to change his constitution. Okay that's how brazen Putin is so on. Ski Of course laughed. TROLLING PUTIN SO Russia gets to go in and dictate meddle title and attack other countries democracies but if Western states stand united against human rights abuses in Russia by for instance passing them. And that's outrageous. It was enough for Hillary Clinton Express Express support for protests against Putin in the twenty twelve election in Russia for Putina. Hold a grudge against her. So Putin can metal no one else can do anything that he deems meddling including including supporting a strong independent media and anti-corruption performers. So this is all significant because when I G report came out saying that intelligence agency had every right to investigate a Russia's influence on the two thousand sixteen election it's connections the trump campaign trump fires fires back by projecting what it was he actually was doing at the time with his quote. This was an overthrow of government. This was an attempted overthrow and a lot of people were in in on it and they got caught. They got caught red-handed trump literally. Sounds like he's describing the Miller report or any other stuff that's coming on the Patriot inquiry. What trump just said is what manafort was paid? Hey tens of millions of dollars to do by all Adere Pasta and oligarch that's close to Putin what is really troubling. IS THAT AG bar. Who is Tom Hagen? And he's the mafia constantly for the trump crime family and the worst of the Republican establishment has been for decades bar came out attacking the IGA report art and then his little white supremacy looking henchman. Durham broke protocol by attacking it as well what they're doing is they're intimidating imitating all the good people left all the strong patriots left across our intelligence agencies basically telling them if you dare to hold the trump crime family accountable bowl in any way if you dare to leak if you dare to begin any investigation that even based on credible intelligence if you dare to follow up with any information provided you by any foreign foreign intelligence service of our allies from Australia to the UK and so forth. If you dare to do that we will come after you so understand that we have this massive intimidation what's going on in plain sight by the attorney. General who's really a Mafia lawyer and by his henchmen. If you go back to that Lisa page interview that was incredibly powerful in the daily only beat by molly young fast. Lisa page laments. What has happened to her beloved DOJ? Well what happened to your beloved. Doj is what happens in a lot of WANNA be authoritarian turn states with these wannabe autographs at the helm the institutions get purged and. It happens very very quickly. Institutions are only as strong as the people well in them. And if you purge those good people and fill them with latkes. The rule of law suffers democracy suffers. And that's where we are now so speaking of the Inspector Inspector General report should we discuss the new revelation about Christopher Steele which Threw me for a loop and his pen pal. Ivanka trump yeah so Christopher Steele is best known for writing the quote unquote steele dossier. The documents that were leaked to buzzfeed in January twenty seventeen nineteen which reference the infamous alleged P tape? We have now learned that Christopher Steele has had a relationship with Ivanka trump nearly a decade decade before he was hired by Republicans who are working with fusion. GPS to examine the trump campaign. And just a little recap of seals feels findings when seals doing that research for fusion. GPS which was eventually used by the Democrats. He was horrified by what he found. especially his primary. Hi Mary contention that trump had been cultivated as a Kremlin asset since at least two thousand eleven steel spoke anonymously with David Corn of Mother Jones. Who wrote an article? That came out on Halloween 2016. That article was published at how we met. That is how you when I met is true that that is the night that Andrea and I first interacted because I went out trick or treating with my kids came back and my timeline look like a John mccrea novel and Andrea and I both were like like. Wow so there's someone else out there who heard that trump had some kind of disgusting Illicit sex in Russia that has been taped and we'll possibly absolutely be released to the world. So yeah the beginning of a beautiful. That's what I tweeted. I tweeted trump sex tape launching the HASHTAG trump sex tape and Sarah popped MIDEM's and and our lives have never been the same. Yeah it's really really beautiful. Trump's estate manafort mafia schemes. That's what that's the bonds of an enduring friendship right there. So you know David Koren publishers. This article meanwhile the New York Times is publishing a bunch of propaganda about how the FBI says that trump has nothing to do with. Russia wasn't investigating which we know is a total ally. Steel was also horrified allegedly by that New York Times article since then. Steel has largely been in seclusion. There have been a number of reports that his life has been threatened and all that time the information about his relationship with vonk trump was kept secret as. Oh here's a summary of what that relationship entailed. According to the Inspector General's report quote steel called the allegation that he was biased against trump. From the start start ridiculous. He stated that if anything he was favourably disposed toward the trump family because he began his research because he had visited a family member. At trump tower it had been friendly with a family member for some years. He described their relationship as quote personal and said that he wants gifted a family Tartan from Scotland to to the family member and so now we know the family member in question was Ivanka trump. who had at that time? Hit Up Steel to work with the trump's on their business business Interests Aka there mafia activity which still did not do but the two of them stayed in touch. This relationship started around two thousand seven which replace it right after a Vonk had flown to Moscow with mobster turned sometime. FBI informant turned mobster again. Feel acceder right after manafort. A four moved into trump tower in two thousand. Six right after Alexander Litvinenko the Russian dissident and former intelligence member was poisoned to death in the UK. Okay also in two thousand six. That was a case that Christopher Steele in his capacity as an intelligence officer was examining and this was also right when vodka in Don Jr.. We're getting more involved. In trump family real estate money laundering schemes most notably trump tower. Soho for which she and Don Jr. ear where nearly indited for Felony Fraud in two thousand twelve until their family lawyer gave a hefty donation to the campaign of Sivan's who was overseeing the a case. That's a lot of information but I want to know what exactly was going on here. You know there are a lot of theories out there The main one that seems plausible commute each possibly trying to honey trap each other that if steel is investigating the KGB the Russian mafia their incursion into the western states the trump family would be of interest they were just in the Kremlin. Ivanka was just spinning around. In Putin's chair I mean that's an actual thing that happened. They they were working with Mafia affiliated actors like Felix Cedar. Meanwhile Ivanka would be interested in steel she would be interested in compromising him. Ivanka is not this. Innocent actor or the sideline character that people like to portray her as she and jared have been central to crime family activity from the beginning and she was trained to continue to carry out this operation. As I've said many times this is the pattern of kleptocracy is to put the family into executive power. You put the family in the business you put the family in office it. It keeps the money flowing and you also use your younger family members. The ones who are more amenable to the media to gloss over what is a criminal endeavor at that time time. That's what the apprentice was doing. That is what Ivanka was doing on the apprentice. She was an assistant with no particular role much as she's an assistant with no particular role all in the White House and her real role is to gloss over these trump crime family endeavors. And she's now I think failing at that but it certainly worked back in two thousand sixteen twenty seventeen the media blew off this threat anyway. What are your thoughts on this relationship? Vonk trump like you said. She's very much which involved in this crime family. She's a pillar of it. She's the the favorite child as we know The endgame of this is to make vodka trump trump the first woman president using the same coalition of corruption. That's Dole the election originally for her father so it with Donald Trump does step down. Eventually I think they're going to pull all the punches out to steal this next one because they need to. So he doesn't get indicted and throw prison and the Kremlin aides to avoid sanctions so the stakes have never been higher for them and Laverov RAV visiting trump. This week is very much a strategy session to that. You know certainly in that direction without question because the impeachment a crisis for the trump crime family is heating up. Public opinion is changing this is excellent. TV everybody loves a good crime drama and that is what as we always said from the beginning being. That's why we need impeachment hearings because everyone loves a good crime drama but vodka trump the fact that she's always escaped accountability and she doesn't get the same scrutiny. I mean she was running being the transition team which Mike Flynn said. The trump transition team told him to reach out to the Russian ambassador. Mike Flynn gets into criminal liability there but Ivanka trump doesn't even though she's the leader so there's some weird Misogyny at play where Yvonne could trump being the right kind of woman right. She has that non-threatening little kitten hitting tone of voice. She wears high heels. She dresses like a Barbie. She basically has trained herself to always appear a certain way very clearly to win her father's approval and affection. She's always seen as the operator that has her father wrapped around her finger And she very much lives by the trump rand. I read somewhere that when on her parents were divorcing. Ivanka was really crying distraught over whether or not that meant she should have to lose the trump last name. She's her father's daughter. She's it's all about branding.

"We're putting out. There isn't a fringe opinion. This idea that we should continue investigating investigating continue holding hearings in the House and not immediately passed these articles to the Senate John. Dean for example has said the same thing because the goal all should be transparency. The goal should be rooting out corruption. The goal should be preserving election integrity. It should be delivering the truth the full truth to the American doc in public because they deserve it. You deserve the truth you know don't settle for crumbs. There's this mentality now. Because the public has been relentlessly abused by the trump administration and to some extent much lesser extent but still by the Democrats who have played down a lot of these atrocities who have refused to follow through on investigations who've been apathetic to a lot of human suffering particularly that of migrant children on the border and other crimes against humanity people are exhausted people are battered down and when that mentality sets in a lot of bad things happen you see. Colts emerged urge personality. Cults you see Save Your Syndrome emerge where you're just waiting for someone to swoop in and rescue you and you also see mentality of settling of settling for less us than you deserve but don't subtle subtle the score. That is what we need to do as a country. All right and you talk about manafort yet this. I always want to doc. I will sum up briefly. What happened yesterday big day so there are certain topics that we always come back to the show and one of the main ones is crime machine? Jean Paul Manafort and not just because he is obsessed with Andrea sister. Who is Alexandra Chalupa for the Bro Journalists Listening to the program so Manafort Manafort is at the heart of the criminal hijacking of American democracy and we urge you to listen to the earliest gasoline nation episodes from two thousand eighteen when we discuss our or mutual horror back in two thousand sixteen? That manafort was selected as trump's campaign manager and this is part of what drew Andre Together and sew Monday was I know it's very very romantic. My name was a significant day because what we have long asserted on gasoline nation was confirmed by the new report by the Inspector General for the DOJ which is that Manafort was under FBI investigation. Not only in July twenty sixteen as has been publicly stated needed but before he became trump's campaign manager in the spring of two thousand sixteen. This is not surprising as Manafort's dirty deeds date back decades but it does yet again. Raise the question of why the F. B. I.. Allowed a compromised money launderer to run a campaign for trump. Who is himself? A Mafia Africa and Kremlin associate thus enabling both of them access to classified intelligence and a road to executive power that puts the very sovereignty cindy of our country in jeopardy so Andrea. What are your thoughts on that? All of this was in the public domain. And I just don't understand why hi the FBI. Like where was James. Combs press conference on the fact that the FBI was investigating Donald Trump's campaign chairman for money laundering tax evasion. And why was he going after. Hillary Clinton who smartly had her own private server because the United States government was getting deeply hacked by authoritarian. Teheran regimes like China and Russia and their which was a major national security breach so hillary Clinton was vindicated with her private server and yet had James Comey with his documented. Misogyny called her out on this and yet refused to inform the American public. that a Kremlin operatives who was under investigation for money laundering tax evasion was was managing the campaign of a man that was getting closer and closer to winning the White House. The ridiculous thing is just all of this news. That's been coming out since we've launched the show. We are demanding with every episode of gasoline nation. That there needs needs to be an investigation of how American intelligence agencies let it get to this point in the first place because if you were relying lying on the American people to save the day the ballot box in two thousand sixteen. Then why did you not take into account that there was a sweeping PSI diop's campaign being waged against the American people. When all of this was going on you had in the Brexit vote for instance Brexit was the warning? Shot that the Kremlin fired the Kremlin had one hundred and fifty thousand twitter accounts driving the Brexit. Vote helping tip the scales in that corrupted brexit. Vote look at what what's going on in in the US you had militarize propaganda from Cambridge Analytica and on top of that manafort partner Rick Gates he brought in a science organization. This this was all going on. When American intelligence agencies apparently thought that the the American voters would save the day and they didn't have to do anything they could just succumb to their own misogyny and arrogance thinking that they could attack Hillary Clinton relentlessly and try to humiliate her during two thousand sixteen? Meanwhile right in front of their faces in plain sight site to promote his book ahead of its launch. You had this massive sweeping criminal operation that was relying on new technologies like militarized propaganda across all social media media channels that American companies launched. This was a massive intelligence failure. If we somehow avoid deepening this essential threat of of where we are now. And with the Democrat winning the White House and twenty twenty that Democratic president that administration must must must order an investigation into how US US intelligence agencies failed so badly against metaphor and Putin's operation to bring their asset to power in two thousand sixteen is stealing this election Senate and subverting our democracy yes absolutely and it's frustrating to me that within the candidates in all of the debates and discussions around this race. We're not not seeing discussion of this in forthright terms. I think Warren is the closest when she talks about corruption when she talks about Kleptocracy and in our relationships with other authoritarian states who are not only hostile to their own people but who have hijacked our own democracy and pose a danger in that respect act but there should be if we're not going to get hearings on this which apparently some of the Democrats don't WanNa do think some do want to do that. So hopefully they'll still go in that direction but if we're not going to get hearings. We need debate. We need answers. We need to remove this sort of untouchability of the intelligence community. It is clear there are fractures within it. It's clear that there is an enormous fracture within the FBI in two thousand sixteen where you saw. Experts on the Russian mafia people like like Lisa page doing their job trying to save this country and immediately are purged after and then you have operators like Komi talking out of both sides of their mouth and then you have what appears like a contingent linked to Rudy Giuliani. Who are helping move? This long helping trump ascension to power through through illicit means. And then if you look at that historically you see a number of former FBI directors including Louis Freeh and William sessions who went on to represent the Russian mafia and the main Russian mobster to whom they are connected is Semyon mcgilla bitch whose name POPs up over and over again. He is linked to do the criminal. Maxwell Family d'alene Maxwell who was Epstein partner like there is a network here there is as I've said a billion times a transnational it crime syndicate and it is not only infiltrated and influenced our own government but other governments around the world has just said with Brexit and people. Just keep deep beating around the Bush with this. I think some of it is. They're frightened. I think many people are threatened. I think it's incredibly overwhelming and confusing and believe of me. I have sympathy for everybody trying to tackle it because we have on the show and also independently for years and there is so much I do have a book coming out in in April. Twenty twenty called hiding in plain sight. It is a sliver of what is out there you know. It's an overview of the last forty years but honestly we need an encyclopedia. Hiya of crime like we need like you know books that show up once a month like dealing with each participant that is the extent of this network and the magnitude of their crimes. Like imagine if you had an entire book just about Manafort and everything that you know all the shit you got up in over the last forty years like it's immense. It is very frustrating frustrating and of course it's frustrating as you just said before that this was in the public domain your sister was the canary in the coal. Mine going out and telling everybody. Hey Hey Paul. MANAFORT is the Kremlin operative and a mafia associate perhaps shouldn't be running a presidential campaign and instead was targeted did herself and not protected and dismissed and this is just an ongoing pattern and while honestly I was frustrated back in two thousand sixteen that so few seem to should be catching on to this but it was new. It was an unprecedented crisis for our country but it is three years later we have had hearings. We have had had expert testimony. We've even had people from the inside. People like Michael Cohen who are involved in the crime. Come out and tell everybody like yeah guys like it's the mafia and you know what what else trump's not going to step down in two thousand twenty maybe get prepared for that. You don't hear forthright discussion about this. Almost anywhere you get maybe a few soundbites. Yes and that just does an enormous service to the American public because again this is about the public this is not about institutions and this is not about individuals also at least in terms of preserving their greatness. You need to earn the People's trust so Put up or step down. If you're wondering how we got got to this point how. Ivanka trump and jared Kushner are the de facto President United States how this assembly of autocrats consolidating pollinating their power and basically trying to live above any accountability from Erta one to Putin and so forth. We got here because simply put Savior Syndrome. If if things are really that bad somebody must be doing something about it and a really great sort of case study. That should've warned us. That could have gotten this bad with a Russian mafia acid in the White House. Is the story of Harry. macropoulos a forensic accountant. Who tried to warn anyone who would listen that? Bernie Madoff Bernie madoff one of the wizards of wall. Street's when most powerful men on Wall Street was a giant Ponzi scheme no one would would take Harry more Coppola's seriously and he was somebody that was incredibly passionate very much in the weeds in pulling together. Yeah they're all this information and and he had all this damming information and the numbers don't add up and and Bernie Madoff Ponzi scheme but to say Bernie Madoff Ponzi scheme is to say that Donald Trump is a Russian mafia asset and twenty. Sixteen people about that. You are crazy people about that. Your conspiracy theorist this is just another cautionary tale. That if Bernie made off is really a Ponzi scheme certainly somebody somewhere would be doing something about it certainly the SEC or the US government or somebody would step in and stop this. This shouldn't be on little Harry Markopoulo. A father of three and just a forensic accountant all beyond him to stop greatest Ponzi schemes in human history. No and so. That's what this comes down to is. The world is being destroyed because everyone just assumes that somebody else's saving it that's why Andrea and I are always encouraging you stand up for yourselves. Stand up for each other as Andre always says find your community build an activist service movement. No one is coming. There isn't going to be a magical fix even if by some miracle say trump is impeached. Any is removed you're still still dealing with the GOP. The packing of the courts the entrenched corruption the purging of agencies the gutting of institutions that we need like the State Department Department. You're still dealing with the Kremlin you're dealing with Saudi Arabia. You're dealing with this Trans National Crime Network. These are enormous problems and then add on top of those income inequality quality hoarding of wealth by Leeds. Job Loss all the social ills that we live with every day. And we shouldn't have to. You know if you need motivation. Asian you know. Look at kids. Look at the world that they've grown up in look at how they see this as just normal daily life and to some extent. I'm kind of glad that kids don't have this Savior Syndrome. I'm glad that you know when I talked to children not just mine. I'm not trying to work my own children but honestly when I talked to kids they see a lot of issues where clearly they see. Climate change more clearly and they see that trump is a lunatic more clearly. They're not saying he's going to pivot. They're not saying there must be a secret plan. They're like Holy Shit like that guy is obviously nuts like at the least he's not in his right mind and so oh you know my hope for the future to some degree lies on people. Adopting the clarity of mind that you'll find in a child or a teenager who isn't isn't sentimental who doesn't have false expectations and who often isn't afraid because they don't know enough to be afraid but it is our job as adults to protect. Act these kids to protect the future. The future is an endangered commodity. And it's up to us to try to preserve it and that's why we bother with with this like we don't bother with this show or all the things we do because we think all hope is lost and that we are doomed it is the opposite. We are persevering and we're persisting in are oftentimes annoying to some people commitment. She bringing the truth to the public and to digging deep into everybody's corruption into everybody's sins against this country and trying to make them right because you can't fix problems that you won't expose. I WANNA walk through so in in lead up to Christopher Steele I g report that just came out. I WANNA walk through. Just to sorta hit home for everybody. The public domain richness of Paul Manafort crimes. There it is out there there for anybody to write about yell about is want to walk through. Just a bit of a timeline And then we'll go into the big Christopher Steele News and his interesting relationship with vodka trump so the revolution Ukraine begins at the end of November in peaceful demonstrations at then turned violent when government riot police start beating protesters in early December. I tweeted about Paul Manafort. This December twenty thirteen my first tweet about manafort. And that he was advising He's a Republican operative that was advising victory on a Kovic. That's significant because this was this just underlines that this was in the public domain and you my sister's being hounded by Republicans relentlessly. They're they're terrorizing her. They're trying to equate her as you've always say that. She some deep state operatives like how the Hell Did she know that Paul Manafort was such a bad guy will look at my Tam tweet from December for twenty thirteen. That was Paul Manafort's wikipedia page that I tweeted out. That's how my sister knew before. She came into this to try to alert everyone..
