"So I didn't even recognize how important that was to them for me to be there even at a very low level to open doors for them, telling them where to go or not to go and that really hit me even much later in terms of how important it is for more. Asian. Americans do to be in that role you don't have to be the leader it'll be great if you are but the middle ranks even the lower ranks build the pipeline is Incredibly important for our communities place in this country. Why is it important for? Asian, Americans to get out there and to have representation in the legislative arm I. Think is important on two levels. One is the more straightforward symbolic level, which is that if there's a fifteen percent Asian in particular states, there should be a proportional representatives that represent that fifty percent of proportion. But I think also from a very important substantive level is that if you don't have people that have ceased at the. Table to advocate for this particular issues that are happening to your community whether you're a Thai community, Cambodian. Community or Chinese community. Your interest won't be heard to the extent that the resources that could have gone to you had you advocated for yourself just wouldn't be there because somebody else will get. It is not so much as zero-sum as admitted out to be but I think that just how a democratic government works in a sense that you have to lobby for your own resources in. A lot of Asia American population are in poverty they are living in terrible places they had they're lacking education. They're not your model minority stereotype doing while economically Asana so forth and we need to get more of those just interests into the decision makers hand and the only to do that is through representation three people who are working in these apparatus with season the table to divert the right resources to the right people is not like a self interest in thing that's what supposed do. Love, it and so with this series that we're doing, we are trying to highlight as Mexicans who are in politics are in public health who are advocates for their communities and their neighborhoods, and for very important causes. Kevin Thank you for this partnership. I'm excited to kick off the season with you, and hopefully this can help encourage some folks we're listening to the podcast to get involved absolutely you for having me.

So I don't trust anything until I agree it's a federal employee. Well, I also feel like the thing is too is like it's the racists have a reason to come out I for many years. They didn't think they were like the system they said fuck system in general and then trunks oh a guy who gets it he's going to stop the browns and then they were like, let's get the caravan and go vote this out. And I'm just worried that especially with these images of Blm, protests That gives them either more out there because they are destroying things and that's sweet Kyle Rittenhouse who is just trying to help you know like even the you could spend that yarn is wild and so it's like and I think that's the thing that is so that I think because he's so he's always been really good at saying like I'm the victim and he does early so. It has to be a blow out right like he he has to lose by a lot. In order for him to even go quietly into the night because he won't no matter what we heard the last of his ass. Okay. He got money. He liked to rent out stadiums he won't be doing shit and. So, life or death for him I mean. As soon as he leaves office, he's going to be charged with a million one thing. So many things. rhymes all he has to stay in that office. So he can be have immunity you know and I mean Michael Cohen thinks he's going to I mean but who Michael Cohen huge grain of like a brick of salt things that if he loses, he'll resign Mike. Pence will become the President Donald trump will get pardoned. Oh. That's pretty good. Yeah It's pretty good. How how say what now? So if Donald trump loses the election, he could resign on November tenth or whatever okay and. Mike Pence become the president, and then Mike Pence using the power of the pardon pardon, Donald Trump and any of his cronies in between then and inauguration day in January because there's the lame duck term. He'd have to be charged with all the crimes in order to be pardoned right by yeah and they asked date crimes they're only federal crimes. Cool. Just making sure you're. Cooking.

No Aaron Police Dissect that dissenting opinion from the Supreme Court but as long. As we talk about the rise of like a non there's also this other side where it does feel like trump made people pay attention away before we took a lot of stuff for granted and then he came in and now is true. It's like now I'm like, give me that brief. Let Me Remiss Pena Online. Now, Mike. Exhibit Bitch. Did, I just go canvassing during a midterm election. That was the thing about.

"It's the twenty fifth named storm. We're not even in the worst part of hurricane season yet. We're literally going to enter the Greek alphabet next I don't know that I recall Hurricane Alpha but it's coming. We have all the thing that's so hard. Is that like climate change is real were seeing it everywhere. There are people who are bidding being hit by wildfires and hurricanes that are believing Q. and non, and believing the president saying like Democrats are making this happen or climate change isn't real and so I think that. I look at everything that's happening and I am I do my best I think like Michaela Naomi said like look I'm fucking I'm fine. You know I can't complain I literally other than the fact that upstate New York has run out of concord grapes I can't fucking. Shit. And like you know and it is there are so many people like everything that we've talked about like. So much of what we do is like when you go to the ballot box and when you think about what you have to do, it's like, I'm not doing it for me I'm doing it for people who need my help and for people who need extra hands on that arc bending it towards justice and. So I think that some things will if we all get together and we vote in a Democratic Senate and we get rid of trump like I think things will change but things aren't going to be fine for a long time. You know what I mean, right? That's how I well, we still have to push that. Democrat. That feeling of like I think obviously like I think a lot of times and I don't think. Everyone's energy should be towards getting people to vote no doubt. But also realizing that that's step one. That's part one. We all do that vote right then we got keep doing it but I think that's the hard part is that like what can kind of suck is that none of this stuff is like fun and glamorous you know what I mean like the revolution will involve stuffing envelopes. Acting like nobody that's not what we think of right. When we think about our history, we think of like. Birmingham and Selma and like the drama of the March and it's like a lot of it might be texting you know. That'd be you know it's true. It has. Watch Mrs America they had read around. and.

The people who are fine as you said, like that extra hand doing it from some for someone else Elissa like it is kind of on those who are okay right? Yeah. I mean I've just been thinking over the last week and a half or so I've just been feeling more and more like. Big It's a combination of two things. I feel like things are kind of on a razor's edge right now like it it could go either way. You know we could I'm like playing in my mind just how I would feel if Joe Biden one which is okay. Good for years of arguing with someone who will actually listen to me versus how I would feel if trump one which is like. Fuck Fuck Fuck Fuck Fuck Fuck I think part of the reason that I feel like it's so on a razor's edge despite the fact that polling is looking good for Joe Biden a lot better than it ever looked for Hillary Clinton. Even with all the adjustments being made. It looks good for him even with the adjustments that they've made since two, thousand sixteen..

"Welcome to the program everyone I'm Christiane Amanpour back in our London studio this week now. Of, historic proportions ravaging America's West Coast, they continue to burn millions of acres across California, Oregon and Washington entire towns have disappeared and thousands of people being forced to flee their homes at least thirty five are dead and dozens are still missing the pictures seen all over the world show complete devastation in some areas, and of course, this is all set against the backdrop of pandemic that continues to kill hundreds of people every day the fingerprints of the climate crisis or all over these wildfires of course, teeing up a political brawl as Democrats accused president trump of. Denying that reality not only has the president tried to muzzle climate science and rollback safety regulations. But the same is true of health officials who disagree with him on Corona virus with nearly two hundred thousand Americans now dead these crucial tests of leadership will be decided at the ballot box. Come November join me now is Democratic Senator Tammy Duckworth from Illinois a retired army officer who served twenty three years and was deployed to Iraq in two thousand four where enemy attacks have left her a double amputee Senator Duckworth welcome to the program. Thanks for joining us from Washington. Vice President Joe Biden's response to these fires has been very, very strong. He has. said that this is what's going to be. Destroying American neighborhoods not not race riots and the like. But this kind of thing, and he said this is what climate can give jobs or other tracking climate science can actually be a job creator rather than a job deniers as president trump says, what do you make of the vice presidents? Response. Well. He's showing good strong leadership, which is something we're lacking in the White House right now Christian you see a lack of leadership has led us to this place and I happen to agree with. Vice President Biden I, myself introduced my Marshall Plan for coal country, which would be a series of initiatives would bring technology and investments into coal country to help them transition to new forms of energy production. Illinois is a major energy state people think of as as an act state which we are, but we have fracking we have oil wells we have a wind power, we have solar, we have nuclear, we have it on. Illinois. Anna Energy is opportunity for us to get carbon neutral future, but also for us to develop the technology that creates those good paying union jobs, Gavin Newsom who the president is visiting in. California the governor has said to any climate denier just come to California, this is absolutely happening in front of our eyes and yet the president has talked so far about bad forest management and all it takes is good forest management. To corrected? What do you? What do you take from that and what do you think the president you know is going to be able to do because it is also a big election issue isn't it climate? I'm certainly young people both on the Republican side, and of course, on the Democrat side of very concerned about a serious of method of addressing this climate crisis. What we need I is a commitment to a carbon neutral future and we need to be energy agnostic and how we get there and whether or not you believe in climate change you should the evidence is here but as one of my military officers in general said to a bunch of us when she said I don't care whether or not you believe in climate change but the sea ice is melting the Arctic and that's opening up sea-lanes on Russia is there which means the US military forces will have to go up into areas we've never had to go to before to defend those territories. So I don't care if climate change the results are here and we're going to have to act. To resolve it and that's exactly what we are the wildfires here. You can deny it all you want, but you're not gonNA stop a wildfire. So we need to do better we need to get to that carbon-neutral future. We need to get a more efforts into conservation and we have an opportunity to create jobs doing it at a time desperately needs jobs in this country. So many many military commanders many many vets like yourself. A saying that climate is a national. Threat I just WANNA play a little bit of a of what the governor of California has said about this because what what's happening there is not just fires it's the record heat it's the aridity it's the death of trees. It's poison water poisoned air. This is what he said. Forgive me. I'm being a little bit. Long winded. But I'm a little bit. exhausted that we have to continue to bait this issue. This is a climate damn emergency. This is real. And it's happening. This is the perfect storm. It is happening on precedent ways year in year out. I mean, just the scene is apocalyptic there he is standing. In front of just you can barely see through the smog behind him. Do you think it's taken the president I mean a long time to address it. This is the first time he's going to be. Presumably, addressing it when he meets and talks with the governor. She's not leader. Donald Trump hasn't led anything his entire life all he's about he's taking care of Donald, trump this is something that needed leadership on day one instead of providing leadership on the climate crisis, he actually redrew us from the Paris accord we should be joining the perse accord. We should be making these investments and one hundred military bases will be underwater in the near future. You see what's happening in California It's loss of agriculture. It's loss of people's livelihoods, their homes depot devastated in neath leadership right now, not a guy who continues to try to downplay things because he thinks it's going to help them get reelected. And scientists. Now saying, this is not the new normal it's going to get even worse. I, mean what we're seeing now which is the worst it's ever since I could get even worse without any dramatic intervention I'm the vice president raise the issue of another four years of of president trump if he continued to roll back. Regulations and all sorts of environmental safety, and if they don't take this issue very seriously this is some of what the vice president said. We have to act as a nation. It shouldn't be so bad. The millions of Americans living shout of an orange sky. asking. Is Doomsday here. So, is that question is posed I wanna ask you specifically to sort of. Maybe, join the dots between what's happening in the denial of climate science by the administration, but also the denial of the severity of covert as we've seen, we've we've all been introduced to the president's. Issues through the Woodward Book Not Telling The American people when he knew how dangerous it was just the idea of selling and denying those kinds of life and death issues..

"Hairless arid. Okay. So I'm going to give you one guess for what we're going to lead off with today and it rhymes with Comma. Harris is it Kamla Harris? It's Kamla Harris Yeah perfect rhyme with Harris Okay so Ever. Since Joe Biden announced that he was going to pick all women. To be his running mate, all one, hundred, sixty, six, million, or so of US women were on tenterhooks waiting to see which woman would be the King of women and on Tuesday. Joe Biden announced that he has selected. California Senator Kamala Harris as I guess are is that how vice-presidents work? She's now are king. King. She's a Queen Yeah sure King of Women King King Queen Whatever both terms can be gender-neutral now. So her nomination for veep is boundary breaking. In a lot of cool ways. She is the first black woman and the first woman of Asian descent to be the vice presidential nominee for one of the two major parties in a presidential election, which is super exciting. She was raised by immigrant parents. She was raised largely by her mother raising her and her sister alone. She's also married to Jewish guy she's like a rainbow of the American experience and she was also a former DA and a g in California. Elissa despite the fact that you know there's a lot of celebration yesterday I. Think There's something very dangerous about pretending that are preferred political candidates are flawless and I think there's something disingenuous about hiding disappointment or or some trepidation about our preferred political. So let's Give it to me straight. How did you feel when you learned on Tuesday Joe Biden had selected Comma Harris to be his running mate so Aaron I think that you and I both would agree that there were no bad candidates that we heard in the last couple of days if the reporting was correct and it was largely down to Karen Bass Hysteria fave love her Susan Rice longtime. Pal of mine and Kamala Harris the we could not lose now was Susan my dear pal and was I because of my palace and because I believe she is ready to serve was a little excited. That might be Susan I was I'm not gonNA lie did I after talking to Karen Bass the last time think that I could be team bass. I did. So I'm down we need to. Win. Kamla is great. I mean. But I think that everyone is allowed to have their feelings and they should feel free to have their feelings as long as everyone understands that like fucking time to get up and get on I agree. Well, you know as you know because you got a text for me to this effect yesterday, I was driving through a part of Kansas where parents. Nobody needs to use a cell phone All thing I know I was it was like five hours of just totally dead service and we stopped at a gas station in a place called Goodland Kansas right off I seventy and at that moment, Josh had like a bar of service and he had a text. What do you think about Kamla and it was like oh? Okay. Well, it was. My first feeling was that I was really hoping for a more progressive candidate just because Carmela is a little bit more toward the center than my personal politics are and she is although she's somebody that I find really inspiring and I think she did a great job in a lot of ways as ag California and she's been a great senator. She's been a attack dog basically on the judiciary I was hoping for somebody. Who is a little bit more Bassey in their politics I really like Karen Bass I was a big fan of Tammy Duckworth also, I think that she's got an incredible future ahead of her, she was sort of a dark horse candidate Tammy Duckworth but I would have been just completely over the moon if it had been her but that being said and don't forget Tammy Baldwin I almost forgot tammy Baldwin Baldwin the Tampa.

Biden VP Search Narrows to Kamala Harris: Does She Want the Job?

"Democratic presidential nominee of Vice President Joe Biden could reportedly announced his pick for a running mate as soon as this week. California Senator Kamala Harris. API appears to be one of the leading candidates, but some are questioning if she AH wants to take the job or not for more key CBS News anchor Dan Mitchinson spoke with Carla Marinucci. Senior writer for Politico California playbook. Carla. What do you think? First of all, Do you think this could be Harris there? Even in the last days, Vegas betting circled at this point. Dan is being number one on Joe Biden's list. Who knows how that's gonna play out? But the fact is that Kamala Harris has been mentioned before. For other Possibilities in the administration, including attorney general, including possibly a nominee for the Supreme Court. Obama and during the Obama administration, she was reportedly asked if she wanted to be attorney general. She turned that down on the issue of the Supreme Court. She said She wanted to run for Senate at the time. But times have changed, And perhaps she might have changed her mind. She's getting advice from some Democrats that she might consider turning down the VP job because the attorney general job at this point could be more consequential. Willie Brown, who former San Francisco mayor said in his column on Sunday that he thought, uh, right right now, there's nobody left important than the vice president. I mean, as he said, Ask Mike Pence so that nobody thinks the vice president is a really influential job. But the attorney general, ah could have a long to do list ahead and that could include prosecuting Trump in the trump family law enforcement reform, Other issues related tio inspector generals and other things that the Trump administration has done and Democrats I think may be cheering that on, so we'll see how it plays out. But certainly Kamala Harris has a lot of different possibilities. But right now it looks like she may be at the top of the list or very close to it when it comes to Joe Biden, vice presidential nominee, But let me ask you this. I mean, Biden is gonna have a lot of California locked in the rest of the country, not necessarily a big fan of our state. Do you think a VP from here would hurt or help him then? That's been a debate Janet, But the fact is Kamala Harris has huge name recognition in the rest of the country. The You don't want the advice presidential nominee to do any harm. But in commonly Harrison's case, she could help in helping deliver some of those states where you need to rev up the Democratic base of progressive base. She had those followers right. She had a presidential campaign that brought her to all of those swing states. And so many voters know her out there more than some of the other women on the list. That doesn't mean, however, that people like Karen Bass, perhaps the House member from Los Angeles, Uh, Susan Rice, former ambassador and Tammy Duckworth's, uh, the senator from Illinois who is highly thought of this well couldn't be part of the mix as well. But how tough would this be for not only Biden but for Harris if she decides to run in four years if Biden's only in there for one or even in eight to move into the White House when we have a pandemic going on, and an economic recession? Yeah, you've actually hit on it and that some of the reasons why we've heard some doubts about Kamala Harris being mentioned the fact that she's ambitious. She clearly wants to run for president in some point And the go by in vice presidential nominee is in effect giving a leg up to whoever wants to do that It is effective primary in a way for the for the next presidential contest.

Be Sort of prepared to be a policy leader at a moment is going require policy, and the third is be the person who determines in way. The Joe, Biden isn't the future direction of liberalism I think how the choice is going to be read, not just during this election, but if Biden is is becomes president, his vice president will become a sort of both Avatar in target in a way that most vice presidents don't become until like the end of the second of president.

Of course we WANNA. Leave statues of George Washington up. I think it is a strike against you. No matter how much the subsequent Tucker Carlson stuff enabled her to sort of talk about her. Patriotism I still think if I were sitting in Joe Biden shop thinking about well, this person is going to be on the trail for Munson is going to be answering a million questions. It would make me a little more skeptical of picking her. One of the reasons. We all think Kamala. Harris will get one of the reasons she probably will is. It is always reassuring to her campaign in your candidate to have someone who presumably has been vetted very fairly thoroughly by the public by dint of the profile. They already have, and there's always this feeling about someone who's who has run in the primary. WHO's already been on the national trail. There's there's a feeling. Somewhat justified, sometimes a little bit premature that they have been vetted by that and are safer as a result of it. Well I think that's right and I think I I don't know where I read this, but I believe that I've read that. The Biden campaign has been leaning towards people who've already run for president. Why Jimmy. That's why Jimmy Carter is going to be his running mate. Tested! Rested Ready. All right well..

I'm constantly getting emails from readers. About that and if she's not eligible to be president, should she issued a sensible vice presidential pick that comes from the fact that she was born in Bangkok the constitution says.

Look she's obviously you know extremely charming charismatic, but I have to tell you the thing that really struck me is that she is United States senator. She isn't contention to be vice president of the United. States and she is still doing most of the home schooling that. I think that says a lot about gender roles in society I also think. Interestingly that is one of the reasons why the Biden camp is so intrigued with her as a choice because she is someone who's who's living an I, a recognizable life for a lot of Americans in his, not I mean, let's face it a lot of the men and women in the Senate.

And we and we gave up on it now. Maybe it's easier for for five year olds, but I feel like just sticking with zoom with a five year old is itself qualification for the Vice President?

If Donald Trump gets the four years, which is why I'm working so hard to get Joe, Biden elected It's not even about party. It's about with this.

"Be back is Senator. Tammy Duckworth prepared to risk. American lives to reopen the economy. Does she think Democrats are dragging their feet on the latest stimulus. Bill and does she still support Joe? Biden? She's live on the view next and later. Nba superstar magic. Johnson is live to talk about anything's professional sports. We'll get back in the game and if it'll ever be able to get back to normal as an Iraqi war vet and purple Heart Recipients Senator. Tammy Duckworth knows what it means to make sacrifices for your country and she joins us today to talk about being chosen for a task. Force faced with daunting questions is reopening the economy worth the risk of sacrificing American lives. Please WELCOME SENATOR. Tammy Duckworth thank you for coming onto the show. You know we were talking earlier about you. Know who storming out of press conference today after a heated exchange with two female reporters. Would you take away from? It is the fact that they were female is what what is it. Do you think well I think? He got caught out on his racism. He has really been targeting Asian Americans in particular and he was speaking to an Asian female reporter and I think he could bully her and she wouldn't take it and stood up to him and so anytime I'm strong women have stood up to Donald Trump. He actually like most believes retreats. And in this case you could see that. He turned and ran out of that meeting when two female reporters back each other up so The United States is now Has surpassed eighty thousand deaths and climbing In the corona virus pandemic and trump seems to think he can magically wish it away. You know it's going to go away. Oh Yeah Right. So you're you're to come from state that's been hit very hard. Can you speak to thinking for Second Bananas? Delusional and then has no basis in his thinking in any type of science. My state has been hit very hard. But you know what our governor has really tough tough made some tough decisions. And he's done an excellent job as has Our mayor of the city of Chicago But here's the deal and we WANNA reopen the economy. We need to pass. We need to have enough testing for everyone When I served in the Army I did a pretty dangerous job flying helicopters and so we would never send an aircrew out on a mission without mitigating those risks in one of the ways that we can mitigate the risk of Kobe night TVs have adequate testing for everyone who needs need to be free. It's not just enough for the president to make sure that those around him get tested on daily basis. You know we need to stop worrying about what's inside. The White House. Insert worrying about all the Americans outside the White House who need testing now senator to AIDS in contact with both the president and vice president tested positive for corona virus which is no surprise since the White House hasn't been following their own guidelines from vice president pence at the Mayo Clinic without a mask to president trump ignoring social distancing and even though yesterday the White House mandated mask wearing in the west wing. Is it too little too late? And why do you think trump just still refuses to wear a mask publicly? Why think trump wants to spend this and try to convince Americans that we are in declared this pandemic and it will go away. It's part of what would be was saying. This is his magical thinking And it's not going to go away. And it's I mean he's a hypocrite about all of this because he mandates testing for everybody who is in his immediate orbit and apparently he threw a fit and make an ask why The Secret Service agents were not wearing masks made sure that they had so. It's okay for him to be protected inside the White House with lots of testing all the cussing he needs and yet for Americans who are reporting to work as janitors or as cashiers at at our local grocery store or who go to nursing home to care for elderly parents. Those folks they can't get that testing and he doesn't care. He doesn't care to get the A. P. P. to all of those folks who need it as well and so it's he said a double standard one stand up for himself and those immediately around him And a different standard for the rest of us who are working hard out here trying to make sure that we stay safe And frankly you know I think that He should have been sitting in a long time ago weeks ago with wearing a mask and not just now that people around him are getting tested. He's not being a leader in this in any way shape or form senator. You've been and I agree with you that there's a lot of hypocrisy going around. What's good for the goose not good for the Gander? But you've been named to a task force to help advise on reopening the economy. What does that mean? What does that look like is? Are you getting a clear directive from the White House are you getting a clear directive and participation from the President? What what have you seen so far? What can you share with us? Well we have consisted of two phone calls The first phone call lasted about an hour and the president. The president spent the first forty five minutes of that phone call bragging about how he was doing. And how will the United States is doing compared to other countries in terms of the number of testing? And how we've done more tests than any other country and other countries were calling us to ask for our tests all allies. None of it true. He has been really focused on using this task force to spin his failures into some sort of a victory. When you go out there and if you see that over seventy thousand Americans dead. That is not a victory. That is an utter failure. The fact that people cannot get access to testing and are having to show up to work And and don't know whether or not there are Kobe positive. That's a failure of this White House a fact that doctors and nurses have to go by their own. Ppa The White House has not taken charge of a logistical network to deliver. The people need it. That's a failure. He spent his time trying to spin the task force into some sort of a publicity tool for him and when asked when asked how many tests are we going to be able to do by the end of this week they had no answers for it so good pretty frustrated with this task force? I keep asking tough questions. But we're not getting any good answers so senator. A trump said that we must reopen. Because he only cares about his reelection and that's all he cares about because a lot of people are going to die because of all of the reopenings that are going on all over the place before they were ready to reopen and even though Dr Falcone himself is expected to warn the Senate today that if we open too soon there will be needless suffering is probably doing it right now as we speak We can't stay close until there is a vaccine. I'm assuming because that could be a year and a half away. So are the only options open on. Let people die and remained closed or watch people suffer because they can't feed their. It's really difficult right now to figure out what to Joe but it seems to me. That just opening willy. Nilly is not gonNA work because they're going to to many people who are going to die in suffer. The number could go through the roof. So what is the? What do you think we should be doing right now or soon? People Keep Jeremy Senator. When do you think we can go back to work? I don't know the answer. Do you joy. We can go back to work when there is widespread and free tested. When anyone who needs a test can get it. That's when we construct reopening the economy if you looked at other nations that are doing a good job of this. You'll see that. They have widespread and frequent and free testing. We can't wait for the vaccine option. But we also can't send people back to work who don't know they're gonNA get tested. And if you make testing too expensive and then that person who comes in and cleans your hospital room. Who is afraid that they may have may have caught You know caught this virus and they can't afford the sixty bucks for the test. They're going to keep coming to work as they have to go to work. They have their rent to pay and and they have to send their kids to daycare and all of those things and so widespread testing that is free is the key to being able to reopen the economy. And we do it before that. If we do it prematurely joy what will happen is that you will see another burst of positive cases and another increase and then we'll have to shut down the economy and data we worse for us in the long run and if we were to open it in a methodical way. I with widespread testing and then with contact tracing widely-availalble. Okay so we're GONNA come back with more.

"Boy. Oh boy. Oh boy. Oh, boy, trying to make sense as some of these stories, and you can't you can't even make sense of them. I mean, I'm still trying to figure out why this born alive survivors Protection Act has caused so much consternation in Washington. Yeah. I I was listening to Tammy Duckworth last night. And I just have to scratch my head. Put the computer back on please. We know what the partisan extremists playbook. It comes out of one base. Not in fact, but in fiction steeped in ignorance and misogyny the goal here is obvious to bully doctors out of giving reproductive care scare them out of business, one potential lawsuit or jail sentence at a time making it even harder for women to get the care. They need when they need it. Most the numbers of physicians. Available shrinks, this is just the latest step in the far right's long March to strip away women's rights March whose pace has now quicken under our current president. Somebody help me out here. I mean, I'm just struggling with this particular aspect of the choice movement as likes to call itself. The born alive abortion survivors Protection Act is a Bill that protects babies who survive an abortion attempt. How is that even remotely controversial? What is Tammy Duckworth really talking about? How does that impinge on reproductive freedom? I you know, reproductive freedom is access to birth control reproductive freedom is access to alternatives. If you don't feel qualified or capable to take care of an infant, and your impregnated, then there are alternatives that you that are available to you adoption is one of them. Current federal policy doesn't protect babies that are born alive during a botched abortion. And all this act says is that you must provide proper medical care to an infant who survives an abortion. I mean, obviously, we're not talking about early term abortions. There's those surviving in that case. We're talking about later term abortions for a baby to survive. They have to be viable. And the thought that we're arguing about this that we are going to argue that doctors who do whatever is necessary to take care of the life. That has come. Whatever happened to like, you know, do no harm. It's hard to believe that anybody would oppose such a policy. I mean, Tammy Duckworth is a woman on mother does. She really can she shut off the mother part of her brain when she's in that body of legislators. You know, who's who's giving her money Planned Parenthood, the national abortion federation? But they're radically out of step with most people. There's nothing difficult about this. It just requires that you would have to give medical care to a baby who survived an abortion. How is that an assault on reproductive health care? I mean, it's amazing to me. They oppose making a federal law. Crystal clear to support the lives of all babies after they've been born. And they oppose this under women's health. Most of us see this nonsense, but for the professional abortion lobby. This is what they do any lawmaker who adheres to that kind of incoherent extremism should cut it out. Just do the right thing. You you shouldn't have to be wringing your hands. You shouldn't have to debate about this. You should reject infanticide period. Okay. And I love the ones who say well, the baby's already protected under the born alive. Infants Protection Act, but they're in that law clarifies that all infants born at any stage of development are in fact persons under the law doesn't say they have to be protected. They could die. They're just persons. Or they say, it's hypothetical that infants don't really survive abortions. While the data shows they're wrong municipal. Elections.

"Did you hear Tammy Duckworth with all of the same boring tedious talking points? Extremists far, right? Play that again, Pavlina for just a minute can just catch some of these. You know, these typical phrases that the the loony left likes to use in trying to vilify any of us who fight for the unborn and believe in the right to life and believe again, this isn't even unborn. This is born born alive. Born alive. Here's the here's let's let's let's listen. And this is a woman wasn't Tammy Duckworth the Senator to brought her child onto the Senate floor. They change all the rules. So that she could bring her little baby or little child onto the Senate floor. But then you'd say this. We know what the partisan extremists playbook extremists based in fact, but in fiction steeped in ignorance and misogyny the goal here is obvious to bully doctors out of giving reproductive care to scare them. Doc won the lawsuit or jail sentence at a time. We really stop it. How do you? Call a baby. That has been born alive. And the law that protects that baby reproductive care. What killing the baby. Kermit Gosnell is rotting in jail where he belongs for doing with the Democrats just voted in favor of yesterday. Think about it. Think about it. And it matters life matters. The Democrats can pretend it doesn't matter. The Democrats can make up stories about this being. Extremism. The right wing and the far, right? You don't you don't this isn't right or left. This isn't this isn't partisan. This is life and death. It is. It's beyond shocking. And I hate to make try to score political points on this. But the fact remains there's only a political solution to this. That's the only way you can complain about it you can be anguished about it and many of us are. I mean, this is this is not just disgusting. Is it's anguishing to understand what the Democrats did yesterday. Again, except for Bob Casey, Joe mansion and Doug Jones. Every other democrat voted against shaving these child's these children's lives born alive abortion survivors Protection Act. Ben Sasse who sponsored and said, this should have been the easiest vote in the history of the US Senate, not not not a hard.
