Biden Falsely Claims All Segregations Were Republicans

"And listened to Joe Biden's speech in Georgia, the devil went down to Georgia and it was Biden railing about segregation. He's railing about the specter of segregationist George Wallace, the originator of the notorious phrase segregation now segregation tomorrow, segregation forever. And Biden left the clear impression that these segregationists could all be found in the Republican Party and his idea was let's not continue this horrible Republican tradition of segregation. A Biden didn't say all that, but he implied it. And he did name specifically the segregationist and he named Wallace, in particular, but what he didn't tell you is that the segregationists were his buddies. Biden earlier boasted that earlier in his career boasted that he knows these guys, they were great guys. He worked with them. He found common cause with them. They actually regarded him as as a kind of protege. So interestingly, all of this has now become a race, not just with Biden himself doing it, but with the media sort of colluding in it. And what Biden also didn't tell you is that the segregationists were Democrats, and this goes all the way back to the aftermath of the Civil War, the very people. The Brennan center has put out a long list of civil rights bills that were blocked by segregationists, but again, the Brennan center that's left wing organization doesn't tell you that those segregationists were Democrats. They were Democrats to the core. There's virtually one or two examples of a segregationist Democrat who became a Republican Strom Thurmond is an example of one who did, but when Thurman became a Republican he wasn't promoting segregation at all. Now what about George Wallace? Well, George Wallace was a Democrat. He was a segregationist. He briefed the left the Democratic Party to run as an independent, he thought it might be a better way for him to try to get to the presidency. But when that failed, interestingly he didn't become a Republican. He became he went right back to the Democratic Party. He stayed a Democrat until his death. So this is the point that you get the false teaching here and the false implication from the left that these segregationists became Republicans, and the fact of the matter is the vast vast majority of them stayed loyal Democrats right into the graves.

"Then jealous your response again. There are multiple options on the table and one of them is to just simply change the rules. For the purposes of voting rights reforms. The filibuster was the insulator of jim. Crow it is an accident of legislative. History it's not part of the constitution in any way but it has been a used again and again to stymie civil rights progress. Joe manchin is exactly the reason that we're calling on biden to put pressure on the senate like johnson before him biden has been given a situation where yes yes to lead on the economy and he asked him tough decisions about wars overseas any yet. He also has to act with courage to protect voting rights to protect our democracy to protect civil rights. And so this president has said that one of the greatest crises facing our democracy. Are these state level voter suppression laws. If you believe that mr by then act on it and have the courage to call on your former colleagues on the senate to do ever. They have to do to get these. So how do you respond to biden. Who keeps on saying. He wants bipartisan support. And so he doesn't want to eliminate the filibuster first of all less than my senator. Murkowski is not taken support for the people. Act off the table. Also senator mansion has been involved in the redraft of that bill so that bill is still very much alive on the senate things are dance and people can be against something week and then get a couple of words change and under four next week. It's not as cut and dry as that op. Ed might suggest earlier this year. President biden said he supports a return to the talking filibuster which require senators to delay a bill by talking on the senate floor. His comments came after senate minority leader mitch. Mcconnell said he would go scorched earth if democrats moved to eliminate the filibuster turning the senate into he said a hundred car pileup and warned. republicans would retaliate with conservative laws. If and when they retake the senate this is senate majority whip dick durbin on the senate floor where he called to abolish the filibuster referring to it as a legislative rock bottom today nearly sixty five years after strom thurmond marathon defense of jim crow. The filibuster is still making a mockery of american democracy. The filibuster is still be misused by some senators to block urgently needed in supported by strong majority of the american people. So if you can respond to that. And ben people for the american way used to be pro. Filibuster what happened. One thing we saw mitch. Mcconnell changed the filibuster rules in order to pack the court with far right-wing justices. Which again you know. This is the guy who said that he wouldn't even push through adjust if it was in the last year and then he forgot about republicans are very comfortable using power when they have a couple of abusing power when they add they impact our supreme court with justice even though they have lost the popular vote again and again and again. This is what we're dealing with. And so you know mitch. Mcconnell and his hypocrisy don't hold much weight with us. There was a time when it felt like there was some decency in washington but we have right now is unbridled corruption in states like texas and georgia where they have voted to empower politicians with the power to override the people in the next election and the only antidote to state level voter suppression and that type of corruption. Quite frankly is strong. Federal voting rights bills. That's how we end jim crow. And that's how we have to deal with this situation. Dan before we go. I just wanna ask about civil rights. Voting rights icon. Reverend jesse jackson who is reportedly as cove nineteen along with his wife. Jackie they're under doctor's observation at a chicago hospital. He also has parkinson's he would. They were both fully vaccinated. If you could just comment someone who has fought for also healthcare for all. Jesse got me started when i was fourteen years old. Jackie is a saint. Jesse is a unique power in our country When i left the nwc p. became a social impact investor in the silicon valley. At that time. I was one of thirty six black men in the country. You could write a check to start a new tech company. Jesse jackson literally opened up the floodgates for blacks to come into investing in tech by simply showing up at shareholder mic wins and shaming of google. This is a guy who four sixty seventy years. He did. Nothing but serve the people of this country. Hope that we're all praying for him though. Ben jealous thanks so much for joining us. President of people for the american way former president of the acp and that does it for our show. I made me goodman. Wear a mask stacey..

"strom thurmond" Discussed on Politics: Meet Me in the Middle

"The founder's original idea to add. How would you emended this now. Where we allow eighteen percent of the senators to represent over fifty percent of the people in the country. We have two hundred and fifty years of tradition in this respect. And i can't imagine you could ever get a constitutional amendment passed because the competition that requires ratification by a supermajority. The states the states have benefit from the current approach will never approve of a change in this respect. I think it is right. If we ever were to get the new conscious convention that i very much want it would happen if and only if there were a real popular movement with kind of genuine political leadership which there is not now. There's not a single national leader of stature who was even willing to talk about constitutional reform. Let alone a new constitution convention. That if you look at the actual support in congress on those occasions when the electoral college has been the subject of debate. The small states are pretty much split. What one discovers is that the most serious movement for constitutional amendment nineteen. Sixty-nine was stopped in the senate. Not the house about through two thirds of the house. it was stopped in the senate by filibuster jointly led by sam ervin and strom thurmond. Who were right supremacists. Sam ervin turned out to be the hero of watergate. He was also a dedicated southern democrats slash white supremacist. Strom thurman had run for president in one thousand nine hundred forty eight on the dixiecrats ticket as a white supremacist and then he ultimately joined the republican party and killed it later on in the eighties attempts to raise the issue of reform were killed by large state battleground. Senators california basically didn't know there was a presidential election going on because i'm quite confident that none of the candidates visited you except to raise some money. If the presidential election were primarily popular vote they would campaign differently as trump said. If there was no electoral college he would have campaign differently and of course. He claims he would still win out. I think that argument is completely correct. In two thousand one s to concede that we have no idea who would have won a national popular vote election between our core and george w bush because they would have campaigned completely differently. I think that's false this year. I think that both parties for their own reasons really focused on churn out and that donald trump's losing by eight million votes could not have been made up under any laws alternative campaign. He could have won. my point. is that while. I think they're reasons to change the electoral college. If it is changed to a popular vote allstate's will still not get equal attention. You'll just have the candidates spending more time in the highly. Populated area probably. That's what politicians do they focus on where the votes are but it's also the case that they have an incentive to pay some attention to the lower populated states because every vote will be equal the honest response to your point is we really don't know for sure but what we do know is that contemporary presidential campaigns are travesties of what one might imagine a national election process to be like. I'm going to grab onto that word. Travesty for just a second. Ed bring you in and i'd like to talk about some of the things that you pointed out in your article that i say travesty is probably a good word that motivated you to want to make some changes in the constitution. You feel the power to engage in. War should return to congress as the founders intended except maybe to repel military attack. Why do you feel that way. And what happened in this administration that brought that to light it wasn't just this administration brought back to light is still ongoing development. The founders were clear that The power to declare war should be in congress because they had witnessed the abuses of the british monarchs in starting wars and they wanted the people through their congress to have to decide if we have a war and then the only exception was said. Well y'all but what if there's an immediate attack and we don't have time to get together we should be able to repel. They agree to that. And that's why they ended up with their final language but that was the clear intended. We have seen it now. It's not particularly. Donald trump in fact donald trump was an isolationist. He violated that provision. Much more than say obama or clinton ronald reagan for that matter with granada. This has been an ongoing problem where the presidency is assumed themselves the power to go into something that has plenty of time for debate in congress to do and i think that would better reflect what the founders meant and what i think the people want. I thought the check and balance there ed was that congress holds the purse strings. Well we thought congress held the purse strings. Been out of donald trump. He gets to spend money out every wants to. The congress for example had clearly said no money for the border wall and even signed the legislation and he took money from something out. And if you look at these other. Wars people have participated in once you get into a war. It's almost impossible to pull the funding but presidents have used funding not appropriated for that purpose because they have the military to go ahead and start a war as happened in libya. They didn't ask congress. Do you have money to fight the war in libya or the warn kosovo. They just went in and used existing military weapons of they had sought the war. And i fully agree with you. I think that that is one of the worst distortions of our constitutional structure taken place. Also make the point on the checks and balances and the military adventurism. It's interesting because we noticed in the trump administration that one reason the checks and balances didn't work as the senate roll over and play dead and didn't defend their own powers but the same happens with the military adventurism of presidents and that the power to declare war is in the congress. But what happens and you saw it in the iraq war. Where george w bush went into iraq congressman. Get scared to go back home and to be seen soft on war and that goes back to my original point about money corrupting our system. And.

We are never going to solve this crisis if we have to wait for to personally affect us or neighborhood or community before we demand action. You WanNa know how we get this done. We get this done by having a more courageous empathy where people don't wait in this hell to visit upon their communities they stand up and understand the truth of what King Saul that John Anywhere about. It's about people believe get guns should be taken away on this overpower. I those who it's about risk greater servings these these mass shootings tragedies but the majority of the homicide victim come from neighborhoods like nobody has ascended to the White House that will bring bring more personal passion on this issue. I will fight this and bring a fight to the NRA and the corporate gun lobby like they thank you a quick follow up though Americans watching tonight the reality and I asked you have a Republican colleague in the Senate Charter would be decides to get this done you know if if that was the attitude when Strom Thurmond had the longest syllabus filibuster ever on civil rights this idea that we can't get it done because the situation in the Senate. I'm I'm looking to lead a movement to number one reason why the problem looker is towards you here. We have had more people die to lots in my lifetime. Every single in this country combined from the Revolutionary War till now. This is not a side issue to me. It is a central issue due to me. That is the kind of fight because the majority of homicide victims. We've a mass shooting every single day and communities like mine we must awake at a more courageous empathy in this country country so that we stand together and fight together and overwhelm those. Republicans who are not even representing their constituency because the majority of Americans the majority of gun owners owners agree with me not the corporate gun lobby. It is time for movement on this issue and I will lead IT Senator Warren next he said in recent days that there are things you can get done with Republicans in the Senate. What can you get done on gun control so let's start by framing the problem the right way. We have the gun on violence problem in this country. The mass shootings are terrible but they got all the headlines children die every day on streets in neighborhoods neighborhoods on playgrounds people die from violence from suicide and domestic abuse. We have a gun violence problem in this this country and we agree on many steps. We can take to fix it. My view on this is we're going to it's going to be one and done on this. We're going to do it and we're GONNA have to do it again and we're going to have to come back to more until we taught the number of gun deaths in this country significantly but Harrison the question we need to ask is when we thought this much support across the country ninety percent of Americans want to see us. Do I like registration. Oh want to see us do background. Checks one get assault weapons off the grant off the streets. Why doesn't it happen and the answer is corruption pure four and simple. We have commerce that is done industry and unless we're willing to address that head on on and roll back the Filibuster. We're not gonNA get anything done on guns. I was in the United States Senate. When fifty four senators senators said let's do background checks? Let's get rid of assault weapons and fifty four senators. It failed because of the filibuster until we attacked the systemic problems. We can't get gun reform in this country. We've got to go straight against the industry and we've doc change. Congress so doesn't just work the wealthy and well-connected so it works for the People Senator Warren. Thank you you bring up eliminating the filibuster which means you would need simply a simple majority in a Republican Senate to get something done. I want to turn to Senator Sanders on this because you've said before of this reports parts ending the filibuster which he's talked about himself. You should be nervous. Would you support ending the filibuster..

"Of the story about Johann, Omar the Minnesota congresswoman, the, the anti Semite who always taken the side of terrorists in congress is so it looks like she married her brother. But, but, but, but, but, but before you before you're thinking. Alabama joke. I'm not gonna make it all Bama Joe. I'm not gonna make it help you. But before you before you're thinking, like something, something, like inappropriate relationship wise. No, apparently, it was just trying to get around immigration law. Yes, it appear. So multiple news L is now picking this, I was not aware of the story, but some conservative outlets have been pounding the drum on this for a couple of years following her rise in Minnesota. So it does very much appear that her she. Married. Her brother than claim to file for divorce saying he disappeared. She didn't know anything about him where he was didn't know who his family was didn't know how to contact him. And yet based on all the descriptions, we know he matches the address of someone who lived at her home, growing up in so has a relationship with her sister and built the website for the whole, they get very, very bizarre. But if you'll recall she was found to file taxes, joint taxes, with someone who is not legally. Her husband at the time she was married to this guy, and that got reporters to digging, and it looks like there's something there, there. Now, I, I wanna tie together several stories here before we get into the student loan issue. Trust me here. I'm a professional I can tie these together. The number one is this story. So if you check out certain conservative media, let's going back to well before two thousand eighteen as she was charging her rise in Minnesota politics. Conservatives were writing about this issue that divorce documents appeared to show that the person she was married to his brother, it appeared that this was because of immigration rules are coming into the country. Try to make it easy for her to get citizenship into the United States and conservative rated this flag. The media now this week is treating it as new that largely because the newspapers in Minneapolis Saint Paul. Are writing about how she poor day crisis committee of people to intimidate journalists into writing about this order to, to intimidate them into a voiding writing about the story and suddenly, this is new to them. Now, the second story is Joe Biden and Joe Biden's history on race and cutting deals with segregationists in the Senate, and singing their praises including the praises of people like Strom Thurmond and others back in the day. The media treats all of this is new, this was all happening before two thousand eight when he ran for president this was all happening before he was the sitting vice president of the United States. And suddenly, it's new to the media. They're covering this as if they've never heard it before the third is the story of what's happening in the detention facilities along the southern border. These things go back decades. The in particular the video, as I mentioned this being Turkey located by journalists. The video is actually from a court case. Involving something that happened in two thousand fifteen with the Obama administration. All of these things are being treated as brand new to the American media. And the reason is because they're doing the bidding of progressives. They're not doing the bidding of the American people. They're not paying attention to stories that might harm Democrats. And so if you only pay attention to the to the mainstream media, you're only just now hearing about these stories, which is very, very interesting to me. But this goes now into a completely unrelated story, that is student loans..

"Former vice president, Joe Biden has maintained healthy lead in the polls over his democratic opponents for president since announcing his candidacy back in April despite his current position, the seventy six year old finds himself at a crowded field that includes a number of radical, leftists who's positions would have been rejected by most Americans just ten years ago. In an effort to appeal to the democratic primary voter the ones moderate Biden has shifted on a number of key issues. Most recently, he renounces support for the Hyde amendment a law that restricts federal funding for abortions because many Americans oppose the procedure on religious grounds. So who really is Joe Biden? Well, you might be surprised to learn that at one time, he was a conservative kind of guy at nine hundred seventy four article in the Washington, Tony Biden said, quote when it comes to civil rights and civil liberties on a liberal. But that's it. I'm really quite conservative on most other issues as a freshman Senator from Delaware Biden was one of the senate's leading opponents of de segregation bussing the court mandated transportation, students to integrate racially segregated schools, Biden favored desegregation, as a whole, but believe busing would be an effective. Mr. Biden remained opposed to busing, even into the late two thousands calling it a quote, liberal train wreck that was tearing people apart on prime Joe Biden was tough as they come. Sta truth is every major crime Bill since nineteen seventy six that's come out of this congress every month for crime has had the name of the democratic Senator from the state of Delaware. Joe Biden on that Bill in nineteen Eighty-four. He spearheaded efforts to pass the comprehensive crime control act alongside arch conservative South Carolina, Senator Strom Thurmond law is one of the biggest overhauls of the criminal Justice system in the twentieth century among other things that increase federal penalties for the cultivation and possession of marijuana. Reinstituted the federal death penalty and came down hard on organized crime, Biden also has a record of supporting tough border controls in nineteen Ninety-six. He helped pass the legal immigration reform immigration responsibility at that law more than double the number of Asians, patrolling, the border and allowed for the immediate deportation of undocumented immigrants who committed a misdemeanor or a felony inside the USA in two thousand six voted for the secure fence act, which authorized and funded the construction of seven hundred miles of fencing along the Mexican border Biden's record on foreign policy is also interesting. He voted against the Iraq troop surge in two thousand seven that turned that conflict around. He also opposed President Trump's top secret raid that killed us. I'm been lot. So where does Joe Biden fit in the Democratic Party of Alexandria? Oh, Cossio Cortez. Well, it depends on.

"With Joe Biden's announcement that he's running for president comes very big questions about how his campaign will run. And how much the end a hill. Testimony will come back to bite him Biden was the Senate Judiciary chairman in nineteen Ninety-one. When Anita hill testified against Justice. Clarence Thomas supreme court nomination. ABC's political director reclined spoke about it with Sherry Preston. Taking a look at that. Now, it is. So disturbing to watch that to watch what happened during that? I mean, it really really was. It is uncomfortable questions that are asked or just completely inappropriate. You know, he might have tried to call an apologized, but one thing she said is until there's real progress and women can see there's real progress. Then we're not going to get anything done to me. It's a it's a lesson to the younger colleagues that this was a signal moment. This this shape degeneration of conversations the concept of sexual harassment really wasn't in the national conversation before the Nita hill hearings. And it is so long ago. Seeing Joe Biden there is the chairman of the judiciary committee next to Strom Thurmond next Ted Kennedy. This was the the reminds you that Joe Biden is old. He'd be the oldest man ever elected president. And he was a senior statesman then back in nineteen Ninety-one and his handling of that had repercussions. And it's real for people. Not just the need. But whole generation of women who came up after that. And and I think for for the vice president part of his calling card is going to be the the fact that he has his record of service, but it is going to be an obstacle as well, and he is going to have to look backward. Even as he tries look forward. And when you talk about that gender aside when you talk about the issue of Joe Biden and his age and younger Americans who say we are ready to move on. And there's others in the Democratic Party say look, our number one issue has to be defeating Donald Trump, and that's what Joe Biden made clear in that opening video that he had he was saying this is a seminal moment in our country. We need to make this decision. So it's like you have these questions. Do you? You know, push forward with things like Medicare for all the green new deal or do you go? We just got a win here. Democrat his focus on Charlottesville reminds a lot of Democrats even some independence and Republicans of what they don't like about President Trump. He didn't mention his rivals. He didn't really mention his own biography in his campaign launch. He's trying to make it about Trump about the general election to reform. Focus where the campaign conversation will be and look he enters is a front runner. He's particularly weak as a front runner may be weaker than anyone we've seen is a front runner in generations. But he's going to be a formidable presence. And I think he's going to start to shape a racist. So far has been

Hi, you're on the Tom Sullivan show. Thank you for taking my call. You bet. You know, they've been after top Donald Trump for two years. There's another angle nine is fine of a core. Term limits so pay what you can apply that. If you're talking about age, you know, they'll play at the Donald they'll stop Nancy Pelosi right there. How many people congress are over seventy? Oh, I see where you're going. So you want if we're going to have a a age limit on. On supreme court justices, and they're a co equal branch of government than why don't we have it for the executive and the legislative branches, right? Would that gentleman? Serail arms ninety six. Thurgood? Well, no, no, no. No. No. Yes. Strom Thurmond Strom Thurmond you're thinking about. Yes. Thank you. Thank you. Six I think he finally left.

But he had no idea where he was or who he was. It was sad. He was. Center and he did not run in two thousand eighteen because of health problems. Well, it was because he didn't know he he had no idea who he was. So he was making voting on laws. Cripple. But your minds all there. That's one thing.

My wife was diagnosed with Alzheimer's at forty eight. And when I look back. Yeah. When you get an early you an acceleration pathway fifty two, but I look back when they diagnosed her forty eight I look back. I wonder if she was having problems at forty six.

Well, I can't find my keys where did I put my keys? That's not a sign of Alzheimer's. I know I know. But but. Whole thing. She did. And you know, when you look at the crazy thing Nancy Pelosi is now how about that it and we'll see what's in it. Well, no, it's it's it's actually worse than that. There have been reports from the media that that covers the capital that she stumbles and says things that don't make sense. And and so they're they're they're they're a lot of people are watching for a sign of dementia or Alzheimer's. But so far the woman seems to be doing fine. But there you can bet the media is is keeping both eyes on on all of these Steny Hoyer a year older than her so should there. I I like your like your point. Should there? Be a we have a minimum age twenty five for congress thirty-five for president. Why not a maximum age? Yes, sir. Thank you, Tom. Thank you, Daryl. I appreciate the call. I had a guy. Call the program.

"It's basically a way of saying to the democratic base into the public at large might sense of kinship with these other powerful people is greater than Mike sense. It can ship with you. Well, let's figure Joe Biden. I mean in his case, it's sometimes appalling. Right. I mean, he spoke very fondly of senators like Jesse Helms and Strom Thurmond he gave a eulogy at Strom famines funeral Sean feminine who was a white supremacist defrauded, the Dixiecrats truly heinous human being. And Joe Biden paying tribute. And he's saying, well, we may have disagreed on this and that but at the end of the day could respect one another. You can't have any respect for white supremacy because to respect to that is to disrespect the humanity of people of color. So there is a question that old labor question which side are you on? Yes. Truly important, and you have to have the right answer to that question when it comes down to it. So I gotta tell you a quick story. And then I'll give you the last word. I went to a funeral of someone who had been gotten well known from the state of Arkansas and the person who gave the eulogy was one of the most corrupt insiders like selling access to the Lincoln bedroom type of Clinton Democrats, but he gave a lovely eulogy. And I think that's what that's what that kind of relationship seduces people like Joe Biden. So I went up to the guy I said that was a beautiful eulogy. And I found you very likable. But I want you to know I've devoted my career destroying people like you appreciated the eulogy what I go back home. I'm going to go back to what I was doing before is trying to destroy people like you, and he looked me in the why thank you. You know? Okay. You can do it. Right. You could say on a personal level. These can be charming people when you're in the Senate cloakroom or whatever. But if you don't acknowledge that they're what we're fighting against then I think you've lost your reason for being in a political sense. But I'll give you the last word. Yeah. I mean, look at Dianne Feinstein with the with the children right where she says that the children, well, I've been in the Senate several decades. I know that this is just not going to happen. We're not going to fix the climate in ten years. And you think well, I'm sorry. But that's that's a suicidal position. And you don't you can't we have to change that. If that's the political reality. Then your commitment needs to be. Well, how do we take this on? I'm sorry. If these people are your friends, I'm sorry, if they are transient, but they've got to go and we've got to figure out because the issues are too important the human consequences so to urge. Yes, can one imagine Franklin Delano Roosevelt saying in one thousand nine hundred forty s we know the Nazis or a big threat. But I know how things work in this town, and you can't defeat them in five years unthinkable. So all right. Unfortunately, we're going to have to leave it there, but Nathan j Robertson editor and publisher of current affairs, and so much more as always a great pleasure talking with you, my friend and as always thanks for coming on the program. Thanks so much, and we will be right back after this. I am Richard RJ scale. And this is this is zero hour. Hello, everybody. This is Richard J s cow from Missouri. Our, you know, there are a lot of myths out there about social security, and they're out there for a reason to make you think it's a good idea to slash the benefits. You've already earned. Here's the truth. Social security has its own special source of revenue politicians who say it's driving up. The deficit are lying. Social security can't drive up the deficit because it doesn't contribute to the deficit. In fact, it's forbidden by law from contributing to the overall deficit, and it's currently holding.

"Sense of common purpose. Okay. But many politicians say things like that who does Booker mean to bring together and how we asked when he came by our studios, accompanied by a single aid. It is the first of our opening arguments talks with prominent declared presidential contenders. It wasn't Strom Thurmond that ran to the Senate floor and said one day, it's time for those negro people that have some rights. No, it was blacks and whites Christians and Jews Democrats and Republicans who joined an uncommon coalitions of conscience to deal with injustice. So is it not exactly a progressive coalition? It's a coalition of conscience the phrase that you just use these labels that we slap on each other. And then dismiss each other because we're have different labels aren't helping our Republic, and I like to start talking about shared values and share ideals. Let me throw a hypothetical voter at you. And I've interviewed voters very much like what I'm going to describe blue collar guy, Lordstown, Ohio. Ohio just lost his job at a GM plant disclosing voted once for President Obama. But also found President Trump attractive voted for him once thinking about it again is that guy in your coalition that guy needs to we need to speak to his pain or politics need to speak to his pain and be able to address the real concerns. He has at the kitchen table. I went out to the midwest to heartland and met with Republicans in Missouri, and Kansas and Nebraska on farms and one of those families didn't even want me in their home. When they research me on their they're part of the internet. They call the person I was showing you around and said, hey, we're Christian family. We can't have Cory Booker in our home. What made you unpalatable to a Christian family? So described whatever they were told by their trust in media, and we all have it. But the friend asked him to come for me to go see him I met him at his door. And then we went into his home and found so much common ground because we both agree that the corporate consolidation is killing the independent American family, former we should note that plenty of Republicans in the sense. Indicated that they like you. But what happens if it's twenty twenty one you've been elected president of the United States, like President Obama, you try to transcend partisanship. But the political calculation of the moment for Republicans is they need to oppose you want everything. That's the only way they get back in power. You know, look if I was going to surrender to cynicism about our nation. And that way, I think cynicism is toxic spiritual state what had happened. Once what do you do when it has? What I I went to Newark, New Jersey at a time that people were so disrespecting disregarding that city. I mean, it was literally being made fun of by late night talk show hosts and people told me, oh, we've tried these things before it doesn't work, and we got incredibly creative. And at times, I reach out to conservatives. I could find coalitions with Christian evangelical is not on everything, but I found common ground. We got things done. If you go to Newark, New Jersey right now, we've gone through our biggest economic development period and sixty years. We have our schools were just shown to be the number one beat the odds school system in America. High poverty, high performance, this is an election. We have a chance to. Have a revival of civic grace. And we need leaders are going to be committed to those ideals and dealing with the cause of injustice in our country suppose, you win the election Democrats in the Senate, it's a really good twenty twenty for Democrats, you go out there and push for Medicare for all goes to the United States Senate and Republicans feel it socialism and filibuster. Do you at that point urged Democrats to get rid the filibuster? Now, I've heard some good arguments since February when people started getting into my face about we've got to get rid of the filibuster people on the left field very strongly about I'm listening more arguments. But we need to understand that. There's good reason to have a Senate where we're forced to find pragmatic bipartisan solutions, let's be a country that operates from that sense of common purpose. President Bush tried to bring together a consensus on immigration couldn't get it done. President Obama tried to bring together a consensus on immigration couldn't get that done. Eventually took executive action. President Trump had a very different agenda for. Gratien couldn't get his program done either and has just taken executive action. If you're in that same situation as the last three presidents facing the problems with immigration right now. Do you take executive action? You do what you can on the powers of the presidency allow, and I will do a lot of that. I mean, what's happening with DACA kids deferred action children the dreamers as they're called is violates values of people on both sides of the aisle. You have President Trump even rhetorically saying he supports those children. You do everything you can to affirm the values of our country, which you don't do is what we see coming from the presidency. Which is rank a racist rhetoric was President Obama's moved to effectively legalized for two year periods deferred action for childhood arrivals. People was that constitutional. I believe it was constitutional. I believe it was not just constitutional if it reflects common sense. Meaning that if you're president and it hasn't been taken care of yet. You might just flip it right back the way Obama had I will do everything I can to ensure that DACA children that dreamers who are Americans. In every way, except for a piece of paper, I adopted the came with me to to the state of the union address your to back. She'd started a internet platform that helped to give employment opportunities to hundreds of people we're gonna we're going to deport her. When there's an injustice people have to understand that often. The opposite of injustice is silence and indifference and apathy is Silicon Valley the firms there where you have lots of connections. You went to Stanford which is nearby Silicon Valley part of the coalition you wanna break together behind you. You know, we need to bring this nation together. It doesn't mean we forgive what I call bad actions or bad actors, we need to make sure that whether it's Silicon Valley or the pharma industry or the big Ag we need to hold people accountable for their actions Recode, which looks into textile wrote a long article about you, and they dug up a tweet from two thousand nine and you apparently had an exciting day in Silicon Valley quote from green tech to social media inspiring meetings today. Incredible Silicon Valley leaders who are literally changing empowering the world. Do you think that's still true? I mean, I don't know we're we're sitting in front of each other's on the pull out like an iphone. It looks like an iphone, and you know, there's a democratization that's going on the technology allows. I've used it in Newark all less us just one platform, which is to help people get access to capital there's so much good. That is coming from technology and innovation at the same time. Though was I left my phone up again in front of you. Do I want one of the big tech firms to be taking my data from me and doing things or violative of my values? These are things that are wrong. And so why do we need to universally condemn entire sectors of our society as opposed to talking about what's happening within them that is in violation of our values, and creating regulations and rules that make sure that they are affirming what's in the best interest of our country.

"As as well. So in June of sixty eight go inside the Johnson White House from the second the assumption is that Johnson has out thought his opponents again, you'll get a liberal chief Justice on the supreme court by late nineteen sixty eight who will serve throughout the nineteen seventies. And ensure that the supreme court will remain liberal. Now, there's another chart that Johnson might have wanted to examine but did not, and that's the chart of his declining public support. So the chart here on the left is Johnson's approval as measured by Gallup throughout his presidency. And it goes up and down a little, but there is a pattern here. It goes from quite high in sixty three and sixty four drops. So by early nineteen sixty eight Johnson's approval rating is hovering around thirty five percent for comparison sake that seven or eight points below what Trump's approval rating currently is. So this is a very low approval rating for for LBJ along with the fact that he's not terribly popular. He's not running for re election. The last time there had been a supreme court Justice confirmed by the Senate who had been nominated by a president who had announced he was not running for re election was eighteen ninety three. Rather longtime ago this charming looking man here Howell Jackson, who was Grover Cleveland nominee served for a couple of years got ill and died in the mid eighteen ninety s so from this standpoint. There's a good precedent for Johnson. Basically any president who's nominated gets confirmed by this precedent? However, you look Johnson may have some problems here. He's not a popular president the Senate didn't have much of a precedent in terms of confirming late nominees by by the president. Now Johnson is looking at one other vote. He he he feels to anticipate where the key opposition is gonna come from in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight this is the chart that Johnson is looking at as he's making his selection in nineteen sixty eight. This is the roll call vote for Thurgood Marshall's confirmation in one thousand nine hundred sixty seven and you'll notice that this is not a unanimous vote like many of the other thirties. Forties and fifties nominees had been there are eleven senators who vote against Thurgood Marshall's confirmation the eleven or up top on the chart, and if you squint closely you can pretty much identify where these people are coming from. They're all from the south ten of them are Democrats. This is a period where segregation Democrats remain in place in the south. And the eleventh is a former democrat Strom Thurmond who was at this point, a Republican Senator from South Carolina. So in. Johnson's might as he's thinking about who will be a good replacement for for Warren. What he's saying is the people I need to preempt is southern opposition. If I can come up with a nominee that will appeal to the southerners then the nominee will fail through without any problem. Johnson. However makes this a little too complicated. He concludes that he does not want to name a new replacement for Warren. Instead what he wants to do is to elevate his friend Justice fordis- from associate Justice to be chief Justice. And so he wants to come up with a replacement for fordis- as a as a socio Justice who's gonna make two nominations rather than one goes through a number number of lists. But the man he's most interested in looking at is Homer Thornberry photograph of Johnson with Dohrn berry this from the late fifties. He knows Thornberry very well Thornberry had succeeded him in the house of representatives. When Johnson was elected to the to the Senate Johnson had been appointed Thornberry to the fifth circuit a in based in New Orleans. So he's he's a pellet court judge nominated by Johnson. He is a former congressman he has very friendly with southern politicians. He's particularly friendly with Richard Roth. Russell is the most powerful of the southern Democrats. So Johnson senses. That Thornberry is someone who will. Appease these other owners who didn't like Thurgood Marshall, and he will ensure that fordis- will be will be confronted Casey Johnson teaches American history at Brooklyn college. She's American history on C span radio now before Johnson. Announced his Thornberry. He gets on the phone with several key figures to sort of kill them out on what they were thinking. Generally when Johnson would call you. This was not a two way conversation Johnson was not soliciting information. He was basically encouraging you to think as he did. So as I call goes to Justice and extensively the purpose of this. Call is to get feedback from Florida's about who would be a good replacement for years as associate Justice. But as as will be clear Johnson has already made up his mind and Florida's this job. Basically here is just to say, yes. On. Has. Disadvantages?.

Casey Johnson Johnson White House Homer Thornberry Thurgood Marshall associate Justice Justice fordis Warren Senate president Strom Thurmond Gallup Howell Jackson Thornberry Florida Trump Grover Cleveland South Carolina New Orleans Russell

"Forget about Hillary and Robert Byrd, the former clinical of the KKK who by the way. Born democrat rate, the democrat died at democrat for all the people that say that the party switched that the racist. Democrats became racist. Republicans actually very few people who voted against the Civil Rights Act of nineteen sixty four in the south switched from the Democratic Party to the Republican party Strom Thurmond being the most prominent outside of that you look at all the ones that voted against the Civil Rights Act and find out how many of them switched from the Democratic Party to Republican party virtually none of them, including Robert Byrd. But I digress. The analogy. I wanna point out is an article, I just read about all the democratic hopefuls who are lining up to to attend a event with Al Sharpton. Headline in a publication called liberty twenty twenty democratic presidential hopefuls lineup for Al Sharpton. Billionaire ex mayor Bloomberg former VP Biden are both scheduled to join Sharpton at his annual MLK day breakfast in Washington DC on Monday. Both bloom both Bloomberg and Biden a rumored to be seriously considering a run for president in two thousand twenty. Sharpens already met with Senator Cory Booker. And New York democratic Senator Kirsten gillibrand is scheduled to meet with Sharpton on Monday afternoon for the MLK celebrations at his national action network Haarlem headquarters. He's also hosted senators Elizabeth Warren Bernie Sanders Sherrod Brown from Ohio also gonna run Amy klobuchar is also going to run. Quote, all have made moves throw their hats in the twenty twenty rink close. Quote. Now, you can go online and find all sorts of pictures with Al Sharpton standing next to. Reverend Louis Farrakhan embracing him. There homeys. So Stephen King is out because he made some pro white, nationalist Pearl. White supremacist. Comments to the New York Times Paula jobs for them. Stripped of all his committee positions and Bobby rush wants him to resign from congress. But it's perfectly, okay. But we perfectly okay for all of these democratic hopefuls. Kiss the ring about Sharpton, a man who made his bones by falsely accusing the white man of raping a woman never apologized. This guy who was right in the thick of the crown heights riots. In the streets of Ferguson yelling. No justice. No peace referring to the then black mayor of New York is an inward hor. Had a bunch of supporters during the trial of the of the young man accused of sexually assaulting a central park. Jogger brought a bunch of people at the courthouse. Many of them were yelling her boyfriend. Did it her boyfriend? Did it? This man is on us or Valence taping FBI surveillance tape discussing during a crack deal with an undercover FBI agent. News conference yesterday, Sharpton insisted he wasn't Iraq. In my own mind. I would not an informant was not am not a rat. The rent's. I'm. Sharpton that comment was in reaction to the report that after the surveillance tape the FBI had him by the shorten curly's, and he agreed to become an informant. And that I mentioned he's according to the New York Times some time back four point five million dollars, lighten income taxes and various taxes, including income taxes. So a close associate of Al Sharpton. A man who became famous by falsely choosing a man of rape. Was sued. Was found unanimously liable for defamation did not pay his part of the settlement for a couple of years. And we did cited to run for president his rich buddies passed the hat and only then did he pay off the money that he owed? This former assistant attorney whose daughter was in elementary school at the time and was taught it. Because her father allegedly raped a black teenager. In any event that a New York grand jury found was a complete and total hoax. To this day. He's not apologized was not am not a rat. The rat are McCain. He denied his role in crown heights. But then a terp tape surface. We're him Belling all sorts of things up to and including the Jews wanna get it on till the pin their yarmulkes on their hats on their heads and come over to my house and get it on. Are you kidding me? Are you kidding me? Refer to whites. This interlopers juices diamond. Merchants man is a good thing. They can never gave him a television show UK's my bad. I guess they did. And now you have these democratic candidates who are bellowing about Stephen King. Perfectly. Okay. The kiss the ring of a man who is a close friend of Louis Farrakhan. And of course, Al Sharpton, denounced Farrakhan. What's wrong with this picture? And this NBC news veteran resigned. His name is William Arkan. He's an army vet worked with NBC for thirty years as a reporter military analysts wrote a memo and said I've had it. Yeah. I don't like Trump. He's ignorant. He's incompetent quote. And yet I'm alarmed at how quick NBC is to mechanically argue, the contrary to be in favor of policy that just spell more conflict more war, really we shouldn't get out of Syria. We shouldn't go for the bold move of denuclearizing the Korean peninsula, even on Russia that we should be concerned about the brittleness of our democracy that it is so vulnerable to manipulation do we really your urine for another Cold War? And don't even get me started on the FBI. What we now line is this historically destructive institution. Close. Quote, what happened to you guys? He says it didn't BC you hate Donald Trump so much. You can't even really debate. Whether or not we ought to be in Syria. You can't reasonably debate whether or not we ought to be doing the kinds of things he wants to do to denuclearized Korean peninsula. And the FBI at one time the FBI used to be a villain. And now, you got the defending the FBI, Trump.
