"Air. We're speaking with journalist and historian Neil Gabler about his new book. It's the first of a two volume biography of the late Senator Edward Kennedy and the course of liberalism in American politics. It's titled Catching The Wind, Edward Kennedy and the Liberal Our 1932 to 1975. Ted Kennedy lost. Another brother, Robert Kennedy, was assassinated after winning the California primary in 1968 is part of his presidential campaign. S O. That was another deep tragedy for the Kennedy family. But the following year in 1969 was an incident which would probably do more to undercut Ted Kennedy's moral authority and reputation than anything else. In his life. This was the Chappaquiddick incident. I mean, you know, Ah, Lot of people remember this, but may not remember the details. Some some younger listeners may not recall it know of it at all. Just just give us the bare outlines What happened in this this episode. Well, this was the summer after Bobby Kennedy's assassination. And and Ted was in a in a dire state. I describe the state that Bobby Kennedy was in after John Kennedy's assassination. At this point, Ted Kennedy was in a similar state. Um, he was asked to come to Chappaquiddick off of Martha's Vineyard to participate in a meeting of Bobby Kennedy's Ah group of Bobby Kennedy's former staffers. They were known as the boiler room girls because they manage the room in which state delegations were monitored. He went there for a kind of weak For Bobby. You also went there to participate in a regarding a race. He was a great sailor. And what happened that evening? The evening of the party on Chappaquiddick Island is one of the boiler room girls named Mary Jo Kopechne E and Ted Kennedy went off in a car. Ted had said that they were going to go back to the mainland back to Martha's Vineyard to Edgar Town, but on the way back, Ted took a wrong turn. One off a very narrow bridge over a pond called Fuck a pond, and the car sailed off the bridge. Overturned into the water was about 7 Ft. Of water. Ted managed To free himself from the car throw window, then said that he don't back toward the car to try and remove Mary Jo Kopechne E. But he tried repeatedly and the current was very, very strong and he could not. Pull her out of the car Eventually, Mary Jo Kopechne e. Died. She drowned in the car is a womanizer and in even is a drinker. So there were those elements. Was he drunk? Were he and Mary Joe Kopechne e going off to have some sort of tricks? Which seems? Highly unlikely whatever one thinks of Ted Kennedy, highly unlikely that Mary Jo Kopechne e would have done that she was a strict Catholic and it impudence, her reputation but also a to B. Fair to Ted Kennedy in this in this instance, it would be very unlikely that Ted Kennedy would have gone off with one of Bobby's a boiler room. Girls. It's just not something you would have done now. Ted did not report the accident. For another 10 hours. There were reasons that he gave for that. But he himself said that none of them were exculpatory that he couldn't exculpate himself from this. And that really was the incident of Chappaquiddick that had all sorts of ramifications politically for him personally, and for the political, cultural generally, right, right. I mean, after the accident was middle of the night and he actually plunged into the water and swam across this little area to the Edwards and went to his hotel. Rather than reporting. It went to sleep, got up in the morning and spend a couple of hours and by the time he reported the accident, you know the car had already been spotted, and I believe they had also already identified. It is his and rescued. Had retrieved Mary Jo Kopechne ease body. He would eventually plead guilty to leaving the scene of an accident and getting get a suspended sentence. And you know it left the feeling that You know, he got he got a treatment that no one else would have in that circumstance. What? What was the what was the impact on him Just his image. His career. The impact Woz that given Ted Kennedy's reputation, he had a reputation to his brother. But, you know, Ted's reputation was certainly impudent didn't need much more imputing, and it was Almost certainly the the death of any chance that Edward Kennedy would have of being president of states. Prior to that accident, it was assumed that Ted Kennedy would be running against Richard Nixon in 1972 if he chose to run and they would have a very good chance. Of being elected president, and if not, then, then in 1976, but that doomed his chances. It also did something else. There's a line that Walter Mondale's then senator from Minnesota, said. I think it's It's absolutely true, he said. When Ted went over that bridge He took liberalism with him, because if we talk about again the relationship between liberalism and moral authority, and if you look at Ted Kennedy as being the primary proponent Liberalism. Then, when Ted Kennedy went over that bridge, he took liberalism with him because he took the moral authority over that bridge with him. Reintroduce you again. We're gonna take another break Here We're speaking with Neal Gabler. His new book is the first volume of the two part biography titled Catching The Wind, Edward Kennedy and the liberal Our 1932 to 1975. We'll talk more after a break. This is.

"The I heart radio, hapless talk Supreme Court nomination and hearings and ultimately confirmation. The again. Let's just stipulate to the fact that Hypocrisy of bounds on this issue and let's look back. Tio one of the my life down what they most extraordinary the first of the extraordinary nominations and confirmation. The hearing process, I should say. I was back in 1987 when President Ronald Reagan Nominated Robert Bork. Hey, was he had tremendous respect as a jurist, In fact, so much so that ah, gentlemen, you may have heard of Joe Biden, a senator to time. Said that he might have to vote to confirm him so impressed with with the Judge Bork was was Mr Biden at that time? Well, that something happened, Senator Ted Kennedy. Issued a complete and total rib beat down on board from the Senate floor and that and that flip bite into the other direction and then looked the last several years. There's been just just rampant evidence of hypocrisy. And so right now look at what's being said from such people as Senator Schumer, the speaker Pelosi there threatening. In fact, I think it's more than implication. They're actually making statement to the effect that They'll be seeking to break the 60 vote legislative filibuster and then add to or perhaps even four justices of the Supreme Court packing the court for a total of 11, or 13 jurists, justices on the court But this this is you can take this as serious or at least not a factor to consider with regard to this upcoming nomination and confirmation because they've been saying this for months. Go back to the occasion of Ah John Lewis's funeral. Where the former president Barack Obama actually used that opportunity, which I thought was bizarre and an extraordinarily bad form as he's eulogizing his friend. And former lawmaker. President Obama referred to Ah, the filibuster is a Jim Crow relic. By the way, when he was the U. S senator, he endorsed it. In fact, he actually endorse the use of the filibuster against Justice Alito So the hypocrisy is everywhere. It abounds and in terms of looking at at what kinds of threats may come out of a refusal or a cave, I suppose more more accurately on the part of the GOP leadership. I think if the Democrats were to win if they're going to get the majority of the Senate and the White House, I think this is the plan. Regardless capitulating and caving on this now in this time will not change that. Get thoughts. 808 34 15 30. You want to text in on the text in on ley line at 51881 Remember? You must start that message with letters. Kfbk. What do you want to see? Done at this point. What's your expectation? Do you want to see Of the nominee announce, which, by the way is a faded mom play. It will happen. And then what do you want the Senate to do? Do you want them to move with it with normal pace to schedule hearings? And once they get too close your call for the vote and make their decision. On. There's some questions. There's some procedural questions to which frankly, I don't know the answer. What happens if senator votes present? Is that lower the threshold? For nomination confirmation. I should say I honestly don't know the answer that I'll try to research that, but there's talk about the loss of three or four Senators, possibly and what that would do who those senators are, how they might actually vote I take with a grain of salt. I think Susan Collins is in a tough political position. The Arizona Senate race will be decided before the General election s O. That's a factor and then remember going back Teo to Justice Cavanaugh, it was Senator Manchin Democrat, Senator Joe Mansion that that actually cast a vote for Cavanaugh, and by the way, he has been reelected to his Senate seat since that time, so it's not necessarily the kiss of death. Depending frankly, upon the state, from which they come for a Democrat to cross over, people talking about Mitt Romney think Mitt Romney will vote against a responsible, reasonable nomination nominee from the White House. I have a hard time believing that, but he has surprised me in the past. Your thoughts. 808 34 15 30. Let's check in with Bob in Sacramento. Patiently waiting, Bob. Good afternoon. Welcome to the conversation. Thank you for holding on. Yeah, We better confirm this. Conservative while we can because the plan, Hillary Clinton already said told Biden don't concede their plan is to stuff all the ballots like Trump's been warning. Force it to the court. And if Robert those the other way like he does sometimes it before before then, if there's no decision by the U. S Supreme Court, it goes to the House of Representatives. We get. Biden is terrorists As a president in the United States. The people will not tolerate a left wing Marxist like Paris already, said the Harris administration. She's telling everybody well, both. Both of them had that slip up on the same day. Both Biden and Harris referred to it as the Harris administration the same day. Get that woman in there now will avoid a constitutional crisis and a possible civil war because people will not tolerate a Marxist president. Period. We've got to get this done now. Don't worry about the Democrats. They break rules laws all the time that we got the reason why we have the majority in the Senate because it's a firewall against Obama. Well, and in good they would. We couldn't have taken the Senate. Do it now, So we don't have a constitutional crisis and we don't wind up with a possible civil war on our hands. And frankly, my observation Bob is that they have been talking about these things for months. The filibuster packing the court. That's that's that's been in the game plan for some time, so this is not this is not just a rising out of this they can see on the court. S so in other words, if if the if the GOP was to capitulate and not exercise their constitutional duty and let this go, I don't believe there's any reason for people to believe that you wouldn't see the change with regard to the filibuster. You wouldn't see the packing of the court. You wouldn't see statehood for the District of Columbia. And Puerto Rico. So I think, frankly, do the right things. Stay committed. Do the right thing. Exercise your constitutional duty and responsibility. And I believe in the final analysis that works best. Get her confirmed. Whoever she is, I don't have to worry about it. All right again. I have this work guilty too, because my part of my criticism of the Democrats have been s so out, spoken on this. Is there already criticizing this nominee without knowing who he or she? I guess it is. It is pretty much had given us a she the president's tipped admit to that. But Democrats what? We're all power. They don't care about the law. Look what they did to trump. They like to us for three years and and shift went on TV. Make the present all we've got the evidence. They didn't have nothing. They lied to us for three years. We can't trust the Democrats. They don't go by the rules. But yet they want the Republicans to go by the rules. Obama. I'm gonna put you down as a guy who wants to see them do their duty and we'll see what happens. I think I think they're listening. My senses That's what they're going to do. We'll take away Frank will come back with more your calls right After this. Don't go away.

Kennedy Institute for the United States so wrong, you have to put in an application.

Well, I always heard that they were I'm sure they have a lot of land Still, but you know what? Their incomes. I mean, Now that you know, Joseph just lost the election. He has no income.

"But the Democrats are not taking on the Republicans The Democratic Party is taking on itself. It's Congressman Joe Kennedy. The third verse is Senator Ed Markey, the incumbent, progressive and Bloomberg contributor. Jeannie's A. No. Joins us Now. All right, you've got a Kennedy, a young, rising Democratic rock star challenging a progressive and senator Ed Markey. This is ah Political junkie's Dream matchup. What do we know Jeannie? It is And it is just in keeping with the craziness of this year that you have a Kennedy potentially. And we won't know until later today, Maybe if we get the results Losing in a primary in Massachusetts. And, of course, as you mentioned, this is a young rising star in the party who may potentially go down in defeat to a 74 year old Ed Markey on DH. So you know, I think it's something that when this first race first came out, people said, Oh, Joe Kennedy is going toe. He's going to take it in the slam dunk, and now many of these polls have Ed Markey ahead by double digits in some cases. And what has happened, of course, is that he has garnered the support of the progressive energized left and young people and representatives like Alexandra Cozzi O Cortez to sort of be the new Bernie Sanders of Massachusetts. No, it's it's remarkable. I mean his his great uncles are Ted Kennedy and, of course, former President Kennedy. But he's he's potentially has other political ambitions. Where could he run? Should he not get the outcome he wants tonight? Well, you know, he's gonna have to do some real soul searching if he doesn't win this thing tonight, and it looks like he might not. There obviously will still be a place for him in Massachusetts Democratic politics, we think But what seems to be happening is this party especially in states like Massachusetts? The energy especially in primaries, is all on the left. And he no longer fits that. You know, He is more of a moderate guy, and he is not able to energize. This base that he needs to get out. So where could he go from here? He you know he could have a state run. He could certainly do something along those lines. But I do think he's going to have to think about how he fits into the Democratic Party in Massachusetts going forward Jeannie. How is this not only figure out how to fit in to the Democratic Party, Massachusetts, but how to fit into a more general election. When you think about what's going on in Massachusetts, you take that to a broader scale. And you really do see that the far left versus the moderates trying to appeal to both parties here within the Democratic Party. How do you see this release more indicative to what's going on on the national stage. It's such a good question, because of course, what Joe Biden is dealing with at this point and has been throughout this process is that He is trying to hold this coalition together. You know, that may be one reason people speculate that the Democrats didn't say as much about what's going on in Portland during their week Long convention, and then the Republicans hit them on that. So you know that Joe Biden Kamala Harris. They're in a very similar position for us here in New York. We know Governor Cuomo has been in this position trying to keep these really, really energized progressive voters and activists in the coalition and happy and supporting them. And it's not an easy task. It's not easy to do We see the same thing in the Republican Party. And so I do think it's very indicative of what's going on. I'm anxious to see and I haven't looked in the last few hours. If we get anything from Donald Trump out of this because, of course, this is very much in line with what he wants to say, which is that this party is moving to the left. Don't vote for Joe Biden because he is just a Trojan horse. Of the progressive left and you look at what happened in Massachusetts will say, And this is, you know, Case in point. I'm not ready to count out Joe Kennedy. Yeah, just because you know you got with a name like that, you gotta You know, they know howto turn out the vote. But I hear exactly your point. In terms of He's an underdog in this race very quickly in the 45 seconds or so that we have less left. I'm fascinated by the by the Senate race in South Carolina. But what do we know about the incumbent there? Looking ahead to November 3rd with Lindsey Graham. Oh, yeah, that's going to be absolutely fascinating. Lindsey Graham. You know there are times in but you know, we have said Lindsey Graham is a shoe in this may not be one of them. This is going to be a race to watch. And I think, as Republicans are nervous about holding the Senate It's races like this, which make them really nervous, and rightly so. And you know, just back to Massachusetts for one second to your point. If Kennedy does pull this off, there's another story there, Which is what is going on with these holes. And so that's something else we gotta watch out for. Yeah, huge. Thankyou. Bloomberg contributor and professor Iona College that is Jeannie's a. No. And Kevin I know that you're going to be continuing this conversation so interesting as well, because coming up a balance of power is going to be continuing on Bloomberg Radio. We're going to be bringing you Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin testimony before the house like subcommittee on the Corona virus, a lot to be listening for. We're awaiting huge comments come out of He cares, Act, the handling of PPP Any future? Of course stimulus that we may expect as well. So really interested, Kevin to hear all of those comments.
Charlie Kirk: Coronavirus stimulus
"And you have Schumer Pelosi. In Biden one hundred twenty five years, Charlie Kirk of failure, unmitigated failure, swap failure and I. Think of my kids. You met my son. He's twenty one years old. My daughter's eighteen and I would think about your America their America and when I say you know, live free or die, American, the world on the brink I'm not joking. And very specifically will be probably the biggest choice election by far in my lifetime, and maybe since eighteen sixty, and there's a lot at stake We can go through the issues if you want, but it's. It's there's there's not one issue we agree on that. I can think of for the most part yet, and you wrote this, and it just really sent chills down my spine. You wrote this book to sound an alarm as a warning. Warning to my fellow patriots about the left's undying commitment turn America into a land, our parents, founders and framers wouldn't recognize it. It's perfectly put, and that's the direction that they're headed on page twenty seven. You have a great part about how Ben Franklin says we ever republic. If you can keep it, can you talk more about how this truly is? A referendum election in some sense and the left is trying to do to our country. Well the the story about Franklin's interesting, because it's, it's the constitutional convention and somebody says he comes out one days, says, is it a monarchy republic republic? If you can keep it Reagan, I quote him off. When I give speeches, said Freedom Charlie and you know this is but one generation away from extinction. And you know when if you want understand if socialism is adopted if their stated goal is adopted America as we know, it then becomes unrecognizable look, I can understand psychologically. There's a component of maybe people that that have been indoctrinated in schools, and you're great at this because you're going in to hostile environments every day, and you're saying you know what there's another way of thinking here, so maybe the idea that people think Charlie that some things are oh, everything's going to be free and they're gonNA forgive my loans at I'll have a guaranteed government job guaranteed government food. How did obamacare workout now? We're GONNA have Medicare for all or or double down on the stupidity of Obamacare and guaranteed retirement. Guaranteed vacation sounds great. But simple math shows you that you'll never get there. And that's why in the Fourth Chapter of the book did this whole history of socialism which is a history of failure? The point is look at the issues. If if we're talking about law and order. They've cited in Portland in Seattle and new. York and Chicago with the radicals. Joe Biden his yet that I know of said one good thing about the ninety nine percent of cops protect and serve and put their lives on the line for us every day. You're right. Okay, so law and order taxes. He's pledging to raise your taxes through the roof. That will destroy the economy Then they're gonNA just add all the bureaucracy. The Donald Trump spent almost four years. Eliminating that'll be gone. That means nobody's GONNA WANNA DO Business. That's why the Biden Obama economy was so bad. Then you look at where now energy independent for the first time in seventy five years with a number, one producer of energy in the world will lose that for sure We'll shut down coal fracking. Oil Gas exploration production those tens of millions of jobs high paying jobs career jobs for people. Then it's about amnesty. Or the United Sanctuary states of America versus Border Security and law and order of never mind foreign policy. We haven't even touched that part yet, so. There's a lot at stake. If those plans stated plans are implemented. America will go down the past you know. The Trash bin of history as Reagan, said Freedom One generation away from extinction we will. It I shudder to think what will happen the three you and your children by kids, and and maybe one day grandkids. ARE READY FOR THAT And I love the framing, because as the founder said either we're GonNa live free and defendant right now, or we're gonNA. Have a country that you know. We don't WanNa live it, and that's really the framing. That is so important right now, and you talk about and I'm really pleased about this. Shawn because I think we have forgotten about the Russia hoax too quickly in. In the conservative movement, you have been the leader on this every night. You were covering it. You didn't let us forget you help. Muller Accountable, you had investigative journalism and it just seemed that an Oxana names, but other conservatives just kind of drifted away from like Oh. That's what happened happened. You have two chapters on this in the book. Can you talk about that? Yeah I mean I call it Charlie, the the biggest corruption abuse of power scandal in history and the Ukraine was oh. Okay, we failed with Muller after three years. We won't. We won't even bother with a special prosecutor not to I'm going backwards here but to get to Ukraine. You? Know they're talking about quid pro quos, but you have to ignore their presidential candidate on video saying you're not getting a billion US tax payer dollars unless you're fire. That prosecutor is named Shokhin. WHO's investigating my son Hunter who went on a and said? Do you have any experience in oil? No Gas, no energy, nope, any experience in Ukraine. Nope, why are you being paid millions? No, because you dad, so there was a quid pro quo and millions of dollars for the Biden I call crime family. That's exactly right, so. Listen and China's even worse. You get to this whole thing what we now know and I believe what's coming. It's like, and this is where the media's corrupt because. They're just the propaganda wing of all things democratic. Socialist. We now know and have all the evidence that we'd ever need is that they protected their favorite candidate. Hillary Clinton. For things you and I and everybody you know that follows you and you have a massive audience would. Literally never get away with. If you had subpoenaed emails Charlie Kirk and you decided to delete them, and you decided to acid. Wash your hard drive with something. I had never heard about bleeped bleach bit and bust up your devices with hammers. You'd go to jail. If you violated the espionage act, you'd go to jail. They protected her. Then the narrative began we now know began in August. We know crossfire hurricane representatives actually went to brief. President Trump General Flynn. Flynn on national security, but they were there to try and get information on trump and Russia, the most amazing part of this, because the Democrats and the media live for all these years is that they knew and they said and they wrote, and they even testified. There was never any evidence, but there was a dirty Russian dossier. And now we know even the New York Times acknowledged full full of Russian disinformation and that was used. And they were warned not to use it, but high ranking people abusing their power, wanting to take out candidate, trump, transition, team, trump, and then deep into the Presidency Donald Trump. They use the dirty Russian misinformation dossier to ruin Carter pages life and roomed his civil liberties and constitutional rights, but more importantly to spy on candidate trump, and then they had their insurance policy. The fact that the mob in the media ignores it is beyond comprehension. I have so I have two chapters. One is on the Russia hoax, and the other is on this whole impeachment witch hunt. And I want everybody in your audience to understand one thing here if I can get one point across. Yeah, they hate Donald Trump, but they hate us more. They think we are as Peter. Struck, said the smell by the way I probably shop at Walmart say money. Why not you have a woman I love Walmart I love COSCO's. I Love I love it all. And I've shopped there my whole life I mean people always stopped me when I'm in a grocery? So, what are you doing here? Shopping? Wa I like to eat a cracks me up. So but think about that. smelly Walmart Shoppers while irredeemable deplorables, wow! Bitter Americans as Obama said that WANNA cling to their God. I'm guilty their Second Amendment Rights Guilty Bibles and religion I'm guilty of that, too. But. It's contempt for your audience. It's contemporary my audience. It's because they knew better. And they will ling. This was an attempted coup. Now do I think there's going to be arrests and prosecutions I? Do spend much slower than any of us would have liked, but the evidence is overwhelming. It's incontrovertible sad actually that this could happen. That was going to be my follow up. Question Sean because when I travel and we get thousands of e mails a on this topic. When are people going to go to jail? And can you give me insight on this? Can you give us any clues any crumbs that we're starting to see from Durham? It's I call them. It's funny. You say crumbs because call them the the Attorney General Bar breadcrumbs. It's like Hansel and Gretel. Remember. We're we're trying to follow and see the trail exactly yeah. He did say that the president was spied on. It did happen illegally. The. Think about this. If you go before Judge Judy I wouldn't WANNA lot because Judge Judy I. I've met her once she'll eviscerate. You I watched her show. You. Don't go before a court. The information that you have not verified. It actually said at the top of a FISO Warren Charlie. It says verified. Okay. We now know the dossier was unverifiable. The sub source we now know, said this this bar talk. We were making this up. This was never meant for anything and again Hillary paid for it funneled money separate issue. And so, what is going to happen I don't have a crystal ball but I. do know all of the facts that are in the public. Are Enough to indict many of the names that your audience is most familiar with. I would argue. Komi McCabe struck page. I'd like to know a clapper. Brennan's role in all of this ends up being and and others. The more fascinating deep question is. Will they get to that January fifth twenty seventeen meeting inside the Oval Office? This is when member Biden said George Stephanopoulos Oh I. Don't know. Anything about this, you know this whole impeachment Russia thing. He was the one same. Bring up the Logan Act fifteen days later Susan Rice in that meeting did the Cya memo the day that Donald Trump was inaugurated. Obama in that meeting shot Sally Age by saying a He. He knew everything about the Kislyak Michael Flynn call. If we look. To sum it up. I think we're GONNA get there because the evidence. Is that overwhelming? If we don't. I fear for the country? Because of you. GonNa Raid Manafort's home predawn raid and you're going to raid Roger Stone's home. For lying to Congress by the all many of the names I mentioned were referred for the same crime and you're gonNA. Pull it twenty nine guys in tactical gear, frogmen and tip off CNN cameras and. Have a biased jury for person. We won't have equal justice and equal application of our laws, and worse than that Charlie is. We lose our constitution. Yes, all our laws are are predicated on next great document and some `perfect, but it creates the path to perfection at a more perfect union so. Long answers. I'M GONNA talk. Show I love it. No, this is what our audience needs to hear, and and thank you for that and look I I completely agree because if we do not have people and I, say this as carefully as I can in handcuffs for what they did Donald Trump then I I will lose faith in the American justice system I. Don't want that and I don't want revenge I don't retribution I want people to be held accountable and I would want the same if someone did this to Barack Obama because it should never happen to a leader ever. Yes. and. They've gone after every single trump friend confidant, and yet if you oppose Donald Trump you get different treatment, talk a lot about the constitution in your book and the founding of our country, Sean going to be honest, I've been very let down by some of these supreme. Court decisions lately Can you comment on that and the importance to get more people like Kavanagh? Who's actually ruled brilliantly? Unlike John Roberts. I! I'm a little. I don't know what's happening. Roberts I have my theory I guess I have my sources people that. have their own ideas based on some knowledge? For whatever reason and I think this goes back to the obamacare decision. He has allowed. How the court appears to influence his decision making. I also sense with no evidence whatsoever. You're not a big fan of president trump, but that should not come into his thinking. Now. If getting rid of bureaucracy and lowering taxes and energy, independence, and securing our borders, and law and order are all part of this election. Let me tell you another big part of it. And it's you know we're taping this ninety. Whatever days away from the Election Day, I what about and we got asked. What about the Supreme Court? Yes, I go through a whole list I. Forget what paid maybe sixty seven I forget. A. In the book. Of. All the things Democrats would do if they're getting power one, is they? WanNa, stack the courts. Get rid of the Electoral College. And I. What, they're saying they. WanNa do is scary. They used to hide it Charlie. When I every single Liberal Democrat running for office, they would run to the left in the primary. They race back to the center, but you knew they wanted the left. There now openly embracing the most radical elements in the country and you know. Unfortunately we're watching it all. Play out nightly on TV and and that sad what I see happening when I think we have to remind a trump supporters that these are not trump appointed justices, a gorsuch I think ruled incorrectly on one ruling. That's it besides that gorsuch and cavenaugh have been tremendous and terrific verses Roberts. I just think we have to give the audience a sense. Sense of continued conviction that the trump appointed justices will continue to rule correctly and Clarence. Thomas and you know the the Thomas Family. They get no credit at all. I mean what he has done. And can you comment on that? 'cause I, E, you've actually been you open my eyes to that like eight years ago and I never learned about Clarence Thomas as a high schooler until you I mentioned it just as a quick aside on his incredible career. I like to do on TV and antidote on radio, too. Sometimes I call it the Hannity history, lesson 'cause I lived through all of this. I know this is going to see. You're not even thirty three, but my radio journey started in nineteen eighty-seven crazy right. Now on my twenty fifth year of Fox, I didn't think I last two. So I feel very blessed. As a side note if you haven't read my grandfather's son. Which is about Clarence Thomas is life. It's amazing. But. You know it's interesting because him and Scalia. To my opinion, my to most favorite justices in my lifetime. Scalia this incredible wit and genius and understanding and. They got a little acerbic side to when when he was questioning Clarence Thomas always set by quietly. What they called a high tech lynching at the time, the more modern. Let it. You gotTA. Remember Yeah. And you know. It was then Senator Ted Kennedy you know Robert Bork's America the borking of America. That was Clarence Thomas. Now we see it more recently cavenaugh. It exposes. The, who is Joe Biden? Who is his team? Because Clarence Thomas and Justice Scalia or the people we need on that court. We call them constitutionalists or originalists, the original intent, not people that would sight foreign law as liberal justices have done or not people that feel that they can rule by judicial Fiat and dictate or legislate from the bench. Democrats always wanted the court to do that which they could never. Do legislatively or win at the ballot box and that's why they want. We call them. Activists Justices Clarence Thomas. has shown a fidelity to the Constitution at the Antony Scalia. That is beyond enviable And the differences styles always interesting, too because Justice Thomas will always be quiet. That's very few questions. Anthony Scalia was in there in a wrestling with people. I don't know about John Roberts. I can't get into it, but I do believe the next president United States is a very good chance. You have a lot of older justices may want to retire. And I think that the next this election in just three short months. That's on the ballot and that's that's generational now. And Sean I think we have to pressure the Biden campaign to do what trump did and release a list of justices I mean president trump was so transparent and Joe Biden hasn't done it yet. Intentionally, of course, because he'll probably put repeated to lieber something on the United States Supreme Court I mean as horrifying as that might be so in two two quick closing question Sean and thank you for being so generous with your time anchorage, everyone you know. Know go by live, free or die. the first is this. Can you just talk about? We are heading into the election. A lot of trump supporters. They're failed. They're falling victim. They suppression pulse I wish that wasn't the case, but it seems like the memory of two thousand sixteen as faded where people forget. We were down by double digits. Can you just give a little vote of confidence to some of our listeners out there? That think we're just losing. I WANNA. Give the vote of confidence, but I want people to feel this way. I want people to think I'll use a football analogy that our mutual friend Linda that you know. Who's your biggest fan? My radio producer? He's amazing. Amazing, but she doesn't even know how many points you get a touchdown, so I'm giving these football analogies. I, want this election. I want people to feel the way I feel which is. We're on our own twenty. Two minutes to go. We have no time outs We're down by six. We got a cross. The plane marched down the field, cross the plane and hit the extra point to win. So if people feel a sense of genuine urgency and worry and concern, I'm cool with that because fear often as a great motivator, not irrational field fear, but if people do not vote, you will get the government that they're telling you. They're going to give you believe. That that is their agenda. To be a Republican and win. You GotTa always use this analogy got to run the table I gotTA. Get Florida Georgia North Carolina can't win without Ohio. No Republican's ever become president without it right? You got hold Iowa then you got pick off Pennsylvania Wisconsin hopefully Michigan maybe MINNEA- Minnesota will be play. Maybe the city of Arizona will be in play. By Joe Biden reference for those of you. That didn't get. We got a hold Arizona Gopher Nevada New Mexico. New Hampshire and Maine's second congressional district. If every single mom, this is a battle cry. You started out this interview with this. I wrote this book not because I like writing books. My last book I donated every Penny I made to charity I don't care. It's not that. This is a tipping point. Charlie this is I, don't. See if these policies are implemented how America recovers. Irreparable harm the to the rule of law to our courts to our economy, they want to wipe out the lifeblood of of the world's economy. This this promise of socialism and I go into such detail about how it's always failed. Here's a quick socialism of example. Member obamacare. Keep your doctor keep your plan. Save on average twenty five hundred dollars a year per family right? Okay. Millions lost their doctors. Millions lost their plans. We're all paying about two hundred percent more and add to that. Forty percent of Americans almost forty percent have only one obamacare Biden Carriage James Choice now. How did they do with that promise? Medicare is going broke. How did they do it? That promised social security. Charlie hate the break this here. He paying into it. You probably won't get it I. Barely Skate through, and they might give me ten cents until they means tested and then take it back, How does it? How did Liberal government work in New York City with all the anarchy cutting a billion dollars, so please? How's IT WORKING IN CHICAGO? All. These liberal cities have where the violence we've been talking about takes place. They all have one thing in common. They've been run by Liberal Democrats for decades right. Most of these states have been run into the ground by Liberal Democrats for decades. If you WANNA know what America will look like if Biden Bolshevik Bernie. Pelosi Schumer and Bozo. That team gets place look at new. York state and city look at Chicago the City Illinois. The State Look at California. Look at Oregon. Look at Portland, the city. Look at Seattle. Look at the state of Washington. Yes. And I. Love this country too much. You know it's an all hands on deck moment and Every everyone of you've got this connection with younger people in this country. You have this incredible. A credible platform you built, and it's become powerful and meaningful and transformative to the country, and you're going out there, and you're fighting on these college campuses and you. You know it's not easy to be in the middle of a I call it a shift. Show all the time, but let's well put, but you do it. And it's freedom works. Every time you give up freedom for security, you lose your freedom because the security that they're offering. These promises that can never ever be fulfilled. In America. The land. I'll close with this unless you want to go further I can keep going the. Barry Farber who was a mentor of mine. Just recently passed away like ninety ninety one. And he always said there's never been a country in the history of mankind that has accumulated more power and abused at less than the United States well I add. A country in the history of mankind that has accumulated more power abused at less, but used it to advanced human condition. The reason America is great and exceptional. If I can say that today, it's not perfect, but it's great. An exceptional is because of its people, and because of the fundamentals of liberty and freedom. So that? Natural rights versus government or rights, natural rights come from God doubt by our Creator. Life Liberty pursuit of happiness while you can't pursue happiness these days in Chicago New York Moreland Seattle. So there's a lot on the line. I love your audience. I'm so thankful for all you're doing, and you've got a great team that you building review and you're out there fighting the fight and I just urge you guys. Just fight like your country depends on it. Because America's, we know it. It's all hanging in the balance. Yet was Sean. You've been so generous the last quick thing I defend the president all the time personally as a person. Can you comment on that because I've had the opportunity to meet him? not as much as you obviously and get to know him, but a lot of people here misrepresentations in lies about who he is as a human being. Let's close on this note. Can you just mention one or two things that that people can take away from that? You know first of all. It's interesting. Nobody seems to understand Donald trump yet. They don't want to understand. I mean Donald Trump. The Dog Bites the beasts, things you feeling sad or get cancer. You Complain Trump. I mean that's how saying the leftist. But here's a guy that is so unique he this guy is like a soon nami force of energy like I've never met my life. The most distinct and unique quality he's had is as president. You mentioned the Supreme Court. He put those people that he said he put. He cut the bureaucracy as he said he'd caught, and he cut the taxes as he said he'd cut. He did the North Dakota. A keystone pipelines Anwar Likey said he would. He's building the wall or almost four hundred miles. A wall by the by election will be over four hundred miles. He found a way it was. It was an uphill climb He said he wanted to pull us out of foreign conflicts, but not back away from evil defeated. The Caliphate took out. Baghdadi and Associates took out Sola Mani took out the Al. Qaeda leader in Yemen. So? What makes him special and unique in terms of presidency is that he is who you see is who you get. The guy that's fights on twitter is the guy that's fighting for a better trade. Deal the guy that fights. Against Liberal Democrats and the media mob is the same guy is fighting to keep his promises that to me makes him the most unique transformative political figure in our lifetime. And Right now. The. We tip the scales. You have a choice. It's never been a bigger choice. He will keep his promises. Coronas been a little bit of a curve ball to the world, but even that ten days after the first case, the only guy that I know of thought about a travel ban will be donald trump. They were teaching at the time and Joe Binder Biden was call them Sinophobic, so he's a man of his word. He's a man that will fight to his last dying breath for this country and the promises he made, and that makes them in my view very transformative. Men will.

Elizabeth Warren Challenges Michael Bloomberg on 'Kill It' Abortion Comment
"We crossed the top of the hour. We continue our coverage of tonight's democratic debate from Charleston South Carolina as we said in the last hour. One of the biggest moments came early on Elizabeth Warren directed at Michael Bloomberg. When I was twenty one years old I got my first job as a special education teacher. I love that job and by the end of the first year. I was visibly pregnant. The principal wished me luck and gave my job to someone else so I packed stuff and I went home. At least I didn't have a boss who said to me. Kill it the way that Mayor Bloomberg never led said to one of them on employees. I never said that they were the record of truism teacher in New York City. She would never have had that problem. We treated our teachers. The right way mayor Bloomberg went on with a longer explanation of what was part of a legal case standing by with Chris Matthews in the Spin Room Senator Elizabeth Warren. Thank you so much Brian. Do you believe that? The former mayor of New York said that to a pregnant employee. Well pregnant employee said that he did. Why shouldn't I believe her? You know I'm just really tired of this world. This one is personal for me. It really is but you aim. Hi pregnancy discrimination is real and we have gone on and on and on where people say. Oh I can't really believe the woman really why not Mayor Bloomberg has nondisclosure agreements. For who knows how many women and it's not just the one the whole point is how can you actually trust someone who will not just say look? I'm going to wave on nondisclosure on sexual harassment and discrimination. Anybody who has a story to tell can come with. Everybody deserves incredible response when they make a charge like that. My question about him. You believe he's lying. I believe the woman you believe. Which was he's not telling the truth and why we live because just to protect themselves. Yeah and why would she? If that's the question why breaking as the Gospel to make sure you're clear about this. You're confident of your accusation. But all I know is what she said what he said and I've been on her end of in the sense of discrimination based on pregnancy. It happens all across this country and men all across this country. Oh my gosh he never would have said. Yeah really okay. Let's talk about redlining that we're talking about an audience down here. A heavily African American Uh constituency down here and just put. These are tough charges. What is it that he did red lining that you believe is bad? Have you seen the video? And which he describes that the housing crisis see there had been redlining and then the government caught involved and forced all of these banks to lend money to poor people and then hit. That's how he describes the housing crisis. That's blaming African Americans and Latinos who were discriminated against on housing for decades. The very act that created a black white wealth gap that persists until this day. He blames that on the people who were victimized by you. Don't here's the thing it's redlining and what happened afterwards. You know after nine hundred and sixty five when redlining was finally made illegal. We just kind of go to neutral laws. African Americans start buying homes at higher rates. And then what happens? The giant banks on Wall Street target African American Communities Target Latino communities for the worst of the worst mortgages stripping whatever wealth had been those homes back away from them of course then took it nationwide and crash. The entice fits complete with your career. I don't I don't doubt a bit of what you've been saying but strategically. Why did you decide to go after Bloomberg tonight and not Bernie Sanders? Who is really rowing? Up The score. Right down this fight so I gotTa Tell You. I think is is the riskiest candidates standing on that stage. He is risky because he's already spent a half a billion dollars nearly as that what he's crowding in on at this point and because he thinks he can buy this election and he puts out on TV with all his millions and millions and millions of dollars this image of Michael Bloomberg that just doesn't fit reality Bernie Sanders. I don't know but I think that he would be view. Worst nominee for the Democrats and he is the worst nominee because he cannot be trusted by the base of the Democratic Party. Let's shift the attention to Bernie Sanders. Who is doing very well right now. You may wind down. And you may wind down here Let me ask you about your your. Very strong statement about him was that you can do a better job as that's that gets to executive ability it gets to relations with other political figures gets to effectiveness. And where do you? Where do you found that? What's your basis for saying it's experience notice your ability as a as a legislator compared to him give me some anecdotal evidence where you are better better president potentially the he is so Bernie and I both wanted to rein in Wall Street of the financial crash of two thousand and eight gave both of us a chance to do that but I was. The one who did the hard work fought with wall. Street fought with the banks built the coalitions and actually one and got the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau passed into law. That's a great accomplishment. Let me ask you giving star where he had to fight against other only have a couple of minutes show host out. I worked on the hill longtime and I watched what could get done. What could I watch the filibuster? Sixty vote requirement every serious legislative initiative. You need sixty votes or at least to the US reconciliation. Which deals with fiscal totals? And you can use that sometimes to just operate with a majority now. Everybody has ideas. You've got much more modest ideas than Bernie in terms of quick this and universality and all that other things how do you get anything through Congress that so fifty fifty divided since the end of fifty fifty roughly one side of the other? You know it's GonNa end up point about I'm willing Mitch. Mcconnell does what he did to Barack Obama them. I'm willing to roll back the filibuster. How many votes does that take the fifty one? Or fifty it can use the nuclear option. Guesswork at look part of it is it. Depends on what Mitch McConnell if he stays in blocking position. But here's the assure agreed to do this. Here's the majority leader's. The party is majority leader. I haven't asked it is. I have been out building the foundation for this for over a year building allies. Because that's how you get things on if we want a president. Who gets things done to look? After the last debate I was a quarter of a million people came to Elizabeth Warren Dot Com. And said I want to join this? I want to be part of this fight. I think that's where we are again tonight. I hope it does go done. You got to think through. How do you have a roll-call Fifty Democrats for maybe a couple of Republicans who will get rid of the filibuster? Do you know what that can happen. So it doesn't happen if you don't get out there and build it when I started fighting for the Consumer Financial Protecion Bureau's do you know what the odds were. They were like ninety nine to one. Nobody thought we could do this. We not only were up against every republic show. We were up against half the Democrats but you stay after eight. You reel it in US pressure from the outside to build the coalition. Sometimes you have to make a compromise. Stark legislation passed with only a fifty fifty situation. What I think because this is an issue. Here's took Ted Kennedy and sixty fifty nine other. Democrats to get sea. It took sixty. And you'RE GONNA burn. You're talking about big changes that you would get in a fifty fifty. Is that health and country. Look what country is where it is progressive or can I have one chance to make transformative change. And we better do it. We better be effective on this. And here's the thing. We cancel that student loan debt. There's no going back. We make that investment in universal childcare. There's no going back. We make that investment in housing. There's no going back that's what we need to do. Make the transformative change. Get it through. And then we're going to hang onto it because we his transformative we will change this country. That's why I'm in the Spike Chris. I can tell thank you very much and everybody knows you mean it. Thank you very much Elizabeth Warren. Us Senator from Massachusetts back
Are Cell Phones the Cigarettes of the 21st Century?
"We go with Dr Joseph McCulloch Doctor mccalla. Welcome back to the podcast so great to chat with the again. Well it's great to be here Jesse. Yeah we got a lot to get into. I loved your New Book On. Ems and I love the title. Em assist perfect. My sister's responsible for that one love it. I'm sure people are gonNA love it as well as we jump in here. I think it's important to talk about how you first became aware of ems. I know for you. This has been something on your radar for about twenty years. Some curious how did you initially come in contact with them? And what was your initial reaction. Well because I've got a website that seeks to educate the public about health issues. I became aware of this a long time ago about two decades ago as you mentioned and it was pretty clear if you if you're serving the literature that this is an issue so I knew about it. I accepted that they were an issue but reluctantly chose to accept it. Fully embrace it and act upon it in a way that would protect me specifically largely because I fell prey to the deceptive campaigns by the wireless industry essentially replicated the patterns of the tobacco industry. They absolutely do work. They seek to create doubt and confusion. Which is a primary strategy and they certainly did my mind than they effectively by spinning off of many other ostensibly credible research studies. That suggested. There wasn't an issue. So pretty this doubt this lack of scientific certainty and unlike tobacco which has very clear and strong suggestions that. There's something going on here. I mean just common sense. Why would you inhale something? That's Y- smoke into your lungs. I mean it just doesn't make sense is not going to be an issue but wireless radiation. It doesn't have that at all in fact to other counters at our amazing Lee beneficial to us and that is incredibly inconvenient prize with all these tools easy access to the greatest innovation history of mankind. Which is the Internet. And it's invisible. You can't hear see it smell it so you're just never aware that you're being enveloped with these exposures with that. In the convenience aspect primarily I just shows to be remained ignorant and at ignorant but chose to embrace it in full and take measures to counteract it and I didn't really get motivated to get more serious about it until one of my mentors. Dr Klinghoffer confronted me with this. He's a clinician. For many years in sees a large number of people still in the trenches being patient some of the sickest patients in the world sees in Europe and in the US and one of his basic tenants as he refuses to see someone. Unless they're gonNA mitigate the M. F. Exposures because he knows that there's not going to get better so that to me was a giant clue and I got serious about in once I started studying it and it took me three years to compile information. This book became real obvious that this was indeed. A real threat in that the source of the confusion was the wireless industry and they're far more sophisticated than tobacco industry. Everyone knows how effective they were. I mean Jay's we had every federal regulatory agency telling us in warning of the dangers of cigarette smoking yet they still persisted for thirty years before we finally got the black box warnings and telling people very clearly authoritatively that these are dangerous and I think everyone listening most likely can remember when the four five. Ceo's of all the major tobacco industries testifying before Congress saying one that cigarettes were not addictive and to to the best of their knowledge did not cause cancer. They were lying through their teeth. It took that long and they still lied. But finally attorney generals were able to correct that in impose tens of billions of dollars in sanctions against them. And we're going to head towards a similar result with the wireless intrigued but it's going to probably take another twenty thirty forty years. I mean because the evidence is so clear and compelling once you objectively review it and before we get deep into the nitty gritty here. I think it's important. Were on the same page and to get there. Can you explain exactly what? Ems are sure mfs is an acronym is your electromagnetic fields and describes the entire range spectrum. Which can be anywhere from a fraction of a cycle per second which is called hurts too many billions of or even hundreds of thousands of billions of cycles. Per Second. Not all you must are dangerous. We've been exposed to EMS since air entire human biological history and example of those would be sunlight. Sunlight isn't enough broadly. They're broken down into two different categories. I O nizing radiation in which there is some from sunlight. Ultraviolet radiation was gives us our son Tannin. Vitamin D is actually ionizing radiation. That's when you get too much you'll get a thermal burn as dangerous. You don't WanNa get excessive something like that but obviously some as important to stay healthy. I don't think any rational human being other than a dermatologist. Which hard to classifies rational most of the time would disagree with that and we've had relatively low exposures. I mean they're earth actually emits certain very low level. Emf's Shuman Resin Sake. Seventy eight hurts or so but this is very low level but the exposures that we're most concerned about our manmade ones which didn't really exist before the late eighteen eighties or so electrical fields radiofrequency feels these were not around the planet but they started becoming more prominent even though they were around for four years at the end of World War. One they were still pretty low and if you compare the levels of a typical major exposure we're concerned with which radio frequencies which is about two to five Gigahertz Gigahertz as a billion cycles per second those are the frequency that your microwave oven runs on and your cellphone. They're almost identical frequencies. The industry uses heat thermal damage as a measure of the safety. Because it's the same for microwave. So their thought is that if it's not heating your tissue like a microwave than can't possibly cause biological damage will go back to that later. There's this broad spectrum of ems the end of world will want certain level even though ems. Were around be as we're ROTHROCK FORTY YEARS? It was still relatively low out century later. Nineteen or twenty twenty. We are literally at a billion billion times higher exposure than we were a hundred years ago. That's ten to the fifteenth. So it's hard to imagine that an increase in that type of magnitude of exposure wouldn't have some biological impact so today for example getting into the different man media mass. There's four different types. One being radio frequencies than we got magnetic fields electric fields and dirty electricity. Well Yeah. Those are the primary mimic exposures note. Nature does create radio frequencies to I mean they exist in stars amid him. I think you'll see there are out there but the really really low exposures if you were to measure them they be. I mean it almost immeasurable by most commercial equipment so the issue is not only the frequency but the amount of intensity of exposure them out of power. That's being broadcast into your tissue right. We're going to be looking at the Manmade Weinstein how we can lessen or totally eliminate the impact on the human body. You talked about the SARS and you talked about the effect of this radiation causing heat on the tissue so first of all I just want to get into the FCC here. 'cause they're the ones that are creating these guidelines and the guidelines they're creating have to do with heating tissue so let's go a bit deeper into this and talk about SARS and in the measurement that we're using here and how that works will SARS is another acronym again stands for a specific absorption. I forget the IRS Stanford but essentially it's a term used to describe how much heat is generated when you're exposed to electronic device and it's not unreasonable because it is. I says microwave transmitter. So it will vibrate your tissues as certain frequency and create. He'd and he'd can clearly 'cause biologic damage and it can be an indirect indicator of the amount of danger. That's there but by no means a direct because we know now very clearly and there's literally hundreds if not thousands of studies have proved conclusively that is not the heating damage is what we call the non thermal effects and for the longest time it. We really confused me. No one really knew or understood. What the biologic mechanism was for these. Non Thermal Effects. We just knew. That's what causes damage. We knew it was heating was very very clear was not heating the tissue and if you go abide by these standards FCC I think just adopted him from another professional agency is like International Electrical Standards Agency that they took that from and they've got these models based on but even using this flawed model they use this model that is called Sam which was patterned after a six foot. Two or four military guy was weighed about two hundred thirty pounds sale very large head and it totally different characteristics than a child. They're measuring SAR based on that model. So it's flawed and they're not measure for children also it's slugged begin with but even using that model. It's still an indirect indication because it will give you an indication of the amount of power that's being generated by that devise. But you cannot you simply cannot use. Sars is indication of the safety of your phone because it isn't other than you maybe can compare models and will lower star rating. Might be a little safer but you still need the shield yourself because exposure this will clearly increase your risk of biological damage in the most common would be cancer but you know what I call cell phones to cigarettes of the twentieth century for good reason because there's so many similarities. Not only did they wireless industry pattern their tactics after tobacco but they also in many ways are almost identical with the mechanism of the Holocaust. Har- They do not hurt you. After one exposure or exposure for a week a month or maybe even a decade it takes these is a long term chronic exposure. Where ultimately you'll succumb to the biologic damage. So this is a new experiment. Most people listening to this if not been exposed to their cell phone for more than two decades. I mean there are some but there's like no one more than three decades and debt still maybe under the window a word required exposures going to occur to encounter these side effects and you know people can smoke for four or five decades and still not have cancer now. They make succumb to other reasons. Like my mom who's longtime smoker and was confusing to see by the tobacco industry and she ultimately wound up dying from complications from COPD or emphysema. So you don't necessarily have to die directly from cancer but there's a lot of people coming down with brain cancer as and even prominent celebrities. We have two senators Ted Kennedy and John McCain who both died from brain cancer secondary to cell phone
Trump lawyer Dershowitz argues president can't be impeached for an act he thinks will help his reelection
"Because well the drama in Capitol Hill is whether that vote tomorrow will produce for rebel Republican senators who will say you know what we've sat here we have enabled calm and they read all questions on the cue card Chief Justice Roberts but I think will need to hear a little bit more from Bolton himself maybe some of the documents we don't know what that what that vote will amount to at this point I guess if you were taking action like you would Superbowl action between the chiefs and the San Francisco forty Niners now take fifty fifty it's it's sort of suede it looked like they had the Republicans they will more than four now looks like maybe they don't so we'll see how it turns out but while all that was taking place while McConnell was meeting separately with mark how ski apparently trying to convince a no no you don't want to join Collins said and Romney on that and become the Republican senator number three to jump ship Alan Dershowitz who's considered the legal beagle from Harvey took to the floor in defense of the president of the United States is part of the legal team I made an argument I did not the socks off of people whether your legal experts or you would just pragmatic in common sense no matter what your politics all over the world will watching in fact he talked about the quid pro quo that would be used towards gaining an edge in an upcoming election of a sitting president every public official what I know believes that his election is in the public interest and mostly right your election is in the public interest in for president does something which he believes will help him get elected in the public interest that cannot be the kind of quid pro quo that results in impeachment I wish I was I literally went wow if that's that's their defense that's their final word on this that is bad because I need so basically what he's saying is president is a green lit what to do what ever the hell he wants as long as he's saying and the presidential interest me getting reelected is omnipotent yeah infallible and because he's already present he or she should have the right to use a quid pro quo in order to stay in office because it's to our benefit it's the people spend in fact right so that I'm not miss quoting it and will obviously allow all of our listeners to weigh in as to what Alan Dershowitz men on them is one eight hundred eight four eight W. A. B. C. that's one eight hundred eight four eight nine two two two listen to what he said from the well of the Senate yesterday that has people shaking their head light I thought this was the legal lion of Harvard every public official that I know believes that his election is in the public interest and mostly right your election is in the public interest in for president does something which he believes will help him get elected in the public interest I cannot be the kind of quid pro quo that results in impeachment the reason our fathers created this concept of impeachment was very simple presidents are not gods they're not kings they're Americans who have been chosen to serve the country not their families not their friends not themselves but the United States of America and our founding fathers understood that man can be a moral man can be corrupt and so they set up a system of checks and balances are and further protected the country with the act of impeachment but now our president's legal team has suggested that anything the president wants to do as long as he claims that it's done in the national interest of getting reelected he can do right yes carte Blanche to behave with unrestrained abandoned if you once and if you're already a sitting president and he seems to imply it's in our public interest that you continue to be present and fulfill the two term limit and if it means dealing with a foreign power in which you do a quid pro quo okay look we're helping you with giving you a I need you to help in terms of digging up dirt on my adversaries my opponents whether they're running against me in a primary like Jimmy Carter remember had primary was primary by Ted Kennedy before he had to run for reelection against Ronald Reagan when he lost think of that think of the ramifications and then naturally everyone was stunned because he remember woozy Alan Dershowitz who was so different during Clinton Bill Clinton's impeachment what happened since nineteen ninety eight is that I studied more did more research read more documents and like any academic older my views so so in in so it's his mind there is there is no such thing as abuse of power when you're president so yes he may have pressure Ukraine to dig up dirt to trash Joe Biden he may have held they have hundreds of millions of dollars allocated money to Ukraine to add to the pressure but it's okay because even using the power of your office to serve yourself is okay if you are president I have to tell you guys this is the GOP's argument and if if you support this if the if the senator support this and they reelect him and his supporters you will be ending democracy as we know and I'll tell you as a former Republican lifelong I'm fairly certain will not go down on the right side of history with this one does she which as a former Democrat solid Democrat right across the board he's basically saying because now he is a supporter of the Republicans that he has a different view but as a lawyer let's face it he didn't say this he's a Hessian he's a mercenary lawyers are trying to argue a case both point at the same time in Los right will look the perfect example kellyanne Conway I'm not picking on her because she's trumps person but she has been she was you early on in the campaigns she was ripping trump apart as was one zero and this is what they do but I mean this is this is all about what's going to happen to this country and the democracy but the country this is a man whose reputation for being bright when it comes to legal matters and giving it to you straight has now been dramatically compromise because he has basically said you know when I was a Democrat I sure did Democrat way now that I support the president and the Republicans because save embrace me I see it the

And there are a lot of positions that Biden took over the years that all these years later just look stupid, even the Democrats realize no. We'd never should have done that. But it's amazing how this whole immigration thing has evolved over the years, there was a time where Democrats were very reasonable when it came to immigration and believed in things like, well, if you're going to immigrate to this country, any English Ella. Hello. I've talking to this audience, this audience is so diverse, we have so many people listening from so many different places English is not your native tongue, but you quickly realized in order to get ahead in this country, get better. Learn how to speak English. I mean, if you want to really make it in the United States of America, speak, the language. What's also interesting. The English language heavy noticed, it's the international Goto language when you're flying a plane, guess what? Everyone communicates in English. This is the way the world operates, so you should probably get bored. If you really wanna make it get on board. I met so many people and again, so many people in this audience you came here, English was nuts your first language, and you really wanted to make it something that you were good at because you wanted to get head.

It's an interview MSNBC two thousand six Chris Matthews that Chris Matthews, of course, fairy liberal television firebrand commentator, Joe Biden was at the time a Senator and Joe Biden was supporting what was called the. Secure America and orderly immigration, secure, America and orderly Immigration Act. It was sponsored by Senator Ted Kennedy, super liberal, and John, McCain, Republican who was all over the map has a Republican. Sometimes he was liberal septem-. She was conservative, you could ever pin the guy down because he was the maverick anyway, would ask by Matthews. If there was a democrat party position, which accommodates the need to stop illegal entry. To make sure that it would punish people who hire people illegally and then give them cheap wages. It also deter people from coming to this country illegally. Joe Biden said, oh, yeah, this is the plan this what we want to do. And as you listen to this exchange you'll hear the voice of Chris Matthews. He's the first way she'll here, and it's, it's amazing. He sounds, this is two thousand six he sounds like he could be at Fox News and twenty nineteen as a conservative commentator. And Joe Biden says, like he could be a conservative Senator in twenty nineteen. Now, both of these guys Matthews and Joe Biden of since way reverse their positions. What they were once for, but take a listen to this. Can you an employer in this country whether agriculture worker, a housewife into not hiring illegal because the punishment so high that if you get caught? Yeah. It's a huge embarrassment to your family, and you may just hit hit with a fine. It'll kill you the absolutely. We should. Why think we should do you can't catch him? No, no. You can't. And the last part of this is that the democratic position also recognize you got eleven million Ailey illegal aliens here. They have to have a way to earn their way into the deal. This is an amnesty. They're required to take eleven years worth. They pay a fine. They gotta learn to speak English. They gotta pass testers part. Yeah. If we want the problems of Canada right now.

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

"And we are back a little bit of Billy Joel and Alex mall in the studio. One of Forbes's thirty under thirty in the media world who has been regaining us with the story of being a conservative in Berkeley, no less and then getting to meet Andrew Breitbart. What was it twelve thirteen years ago? Talk to us a little bit about Andrew a man we lost far too early. A person who really helped conservatives understand what happened in the last forty years with this famous phrase that politics is downstream from culture and a book that I strongly recommend it changed my perception. And that's his book righteous indignation tells a little bit about the true, Andrew Breitbart who you work for as employee number one. You couldn't have designed someone who was a better model for a fighter at the moment that Andrew was needed. You really couldn't? 'cause he didn't care what the cost was. Absolutely. In fact, he kind of liked it. He kind of. Got a surge off of the hatred. I know it's all commonplace. Now that we've all if you're at all in public life now, Dr g. You're much more prominent than I am. But I mean, there's so much hatred. That's out there. And there's everyone's trying to cut you down for whatever reason. And there are folks who kind of tune it out there are folks, you really hate it. And then there are folks who actually get a little adrenaline off of it. And Andrew was that Andrew absorbed the hate so that everyone else could get accustomed to the new media landscape, but he actually used in kind of jujitsu sent to use it against those people who was so evil in what they said about him. And and the conservatives. Yes, he he starts with Clarence Thomas. It does. In fact, his book dedicated to Clarence Thomas because he tuned into the Clarence Thomas hearings. He was a budding news junkie, but not on the right? And he was expecting a Clarence Thomas to get exposed as some sort of a pervert, and some sort of a horrible person. And instead it really embarrassed the Ted Kennedy and Joe Biden, and because they did the high tech lynching that Clarence Thomas described as and by the way, Joe Biden still in our lives to this day. Amazing. She was on the other foot if a white conservative treated, a black a judicial pick that way, there would be a secret video you can watch Biden. Yes, treat this man. The way he treated him. Anybody can just look at it right now on the internet. Yes. That was huge. And then he Andrew also talk radio junkie listened to Prager and Russian. And that's where so he was driving around delivering scripts in California, listening talk radio, his father Orson being the known actor a who was I think on the tonight show of two hundred times, I think it's a rocking tour incredible guy. He was Andrew's father-in-law this. And he was I Andrews girlfriend's dad at the time and he was right of center, and he was influential on Andrew, so it's an incredible evolution from Andrew from for from liberal Hollywood type two right wing superstar. But he had all the full genetic makeup. He was hilarious. He was so energetic. He knew the media from the inside he knew the culture from the inside wasn't his I never met him got to meet him despite having worked with with you and Stephen and Larry solo, but he looked like to me. I've watched the documentaries someone's into a man whose brain was why of differently outcome completely. He was so quick and funny and relentless and he just had a feel for what resonated didn't he in the media? It was pure field. He referred to what I think is weaponized ADD or something like that. Or or he I think that was how the internet. He was able to use his obsession. That he could get into these modes where he was so singularly focused on a topic. And for a while it was just trying to destroy the left and to fight back against media bias. And did you get you you referred to was kind of amazing what he used to do is used to re tweet the hate on Twitter. So he would re tweet everyone, which I think this was sort of riffing off of Dennis Prager is preferring clarity to agreement which is that look this is what the other side is saying. Have a look these are things about me about my wife about my children. And that this is the left for you. And the left tries to use that on us on the right? And it turns out they have to invent helps us all the time now because we're not that uncivil. Did you mentioned Don jR? It's the we could go down any direction. So he had a unique set of gifts that made him. I think uniquely qualified to fight the fight. He was fighting and not to mention just a dynamite new sense in general having worked at next Matt drudge for so many years at the drudge report, I'm helping our Huffington establish half. Oh, no less. Another good point launch the Huffington Post. It was his idea the same clarity do agreement concept where he thought Arjan, and you've got all these crazy friends just get him to blog for you. The left will love it because his confirmation bias the right will love it. Because talk radio we'll have all this fodder or they can read and make fun of the articles. It was a genius business model. Now, Andrew burned burned out on it after about a year because there's only so much rabid left-wingers. He could handle, but I just loaded with ideas. And sadly, I'm sure he would have had one hundred more billion wants if he had the time is it a gross oversimplification to say one of the driving. Motivations for Andrew. Breitbart was taking down bullies. Oh, absolutely. And he really did not like the mentality where people would get focused on one particular thing and stamp out the individual. He was very libertine. He's very libertarian. He was non-judgmental for the most part. But he did not like that certain viewpoints were getting pushed out of the public square and people were getting attacked mostly verbally because they held viewpoint that were not codified by the establishment media. And that is something we're again Prashant by Andro because that's the whole culture. Now, we have every day. The media is now policing opinion. You can't write opinion articles without getting the threat of censorship or losing advertisements. Now, if you're on the right in this was all the stuff that the left wrote about with Alinsky in the Frankfurt school. That's all and Andrews bucket. A crash course in this. I'm sure most of this audience has heard those names. But Andrew a full chapter on it. Where he breaks down. The this is the institutional left is by design. They didn't stumble on this. They were planning this. I hate conspiracy theory. I mean, I love the my have bookshelves with conspiracy theories as entertainment right because they're called theories for reason fights, but I think it's chapter five of his book. Richardson's I believe is the most important thing. I have read on politics in the western world in the twentieth century since I studied studies. Yes. And some some of you will find it comforting. Because it does remind them it's a map. We're on the map where we and and you'll see oh, so this is what's actually happening. It's not that the world is going crazy. It's that the left is doing some surgery on this Connery that they've been planning on for a while. There was an intent. They was a group. It's not just a linski sa- Frankfurter school. It's George lake off. It's all of these individuals and Andrew in a very digestible readable rather. He maps out where these people. Came from what their intent was and how they took control of education media, and the culture. So if you read just one chapter of Andrews book righteous indignation, it must be that chapter that maps out what the left did to eventually bring us to a president. Who actually this is this is this is the incredible thing a president who comes to office saying his mission is to fundamentally change the nation. He wants to be president of. Yes. Excuse me. What you what you want to be the captain of a ship that you wish to this mantle as your sailing your fifth? That's who President Obama was Andrew Breitbart. We owe him a great great deal.

"Flank. There are people who protested outside his home in Brooklyn for him not being tough enough on President Trump. So he's facing some of the similar kinds of pressures that McConnell faced from from his ideological wing in the Obama years, and they both became minority leader at a time when they were expecting to be majority leader McConnell is the Republican whip in two thousand six heading into those midterms. They had a large cushion, they didn't think they were gonna lose six seats and McConnell planned for planning to be majority leader. And then boom, they lost six seats. And all of a sudden, he's minority leader and he had to find his footing. Chuck Schumer in two thousand sixteen was certain that Hillary Clinton was going to win and was certain that they were picking up enough seats in places like Pennsylvania to to become majority leader and he woke up the day after the election thinking, my got minority leader. What do I do? How does this job work? What's my relationship with McConnell like I have to? It's a very different process and Schumer is still sorting through that role, and that relationship with McConnell, it's better than it was with Harry Reid. But is still not. It's nothing like the old relationships have sort of bird Bob Dole at this point. Paul kane. You mentioned that you were at the McConnell center that day that we saw jobs speaking, so McConnell despite Louisville being very liberal town, and he McConnell living in what is the most liberal precincts of Louisville. He loves the town. He went to the university of Louisville there. He has built a center McConnell center there at the university of Louisville, and he uses that to bring in a big guest lecturer at least once a year, and he loves to demonstrate McConnell that he loves to demonstrate that I have these relationships and so he brought Chuck Schumer down he years ago. He brought Ted Kennedy down. Hillary Clinton has spoken there. Joe Biden has spoken there. And it is it is his way of sort of trying to demonstrate to the world. Like, I can't have good relationships with these people even if on the Senate floor it looks like we're stabbing one another. There's a story that McConnell told us in our Bloomberg office when he came for an interview shortly before the two thousand eighteen election that right before the two thousand sixteen presidential election Schumer called him to say leader McConnell. I hope we're going to have a great relationship and McConnell called them the day after the election and said, Chuck, I sure hope we will. So. Brings that to say. The fight sixteen map was great for for Democrats and they fell short the twentieth. Eighteen map was great for McConnell. Never took for granted that they were gonna win simply because of that. What's his reputation as a leader of the GOP among his members, it's strong. He's someone who will let people air out their grievances. He's someone who will who will generally listen to members concerns he has had contentious moments, no doubt with various members. But he tends not to let that get in the way of his his playing the long game. The only the closest the closest he's ever gotten to having someone oppose him was around twenty fourteen when Senator Ted Cruz famously acrimonious relationship at times Mitch McConnell was making some noises about you know, I've not committed to supporting McConnell, but eventually won back will nation one unanimously. So he doesn't have problems within his conference the way someone like speaker Pelosi doesn't terms of people actually voting against him and his ongoing legacy his ongoing legacy. Will I think always be defined by first and foremost, the decision to block the Scalia seat to hold that seat and set in motion this historical arch- in which you get the Trump presidency. A right leaning supreme court for a generation to come and done through power partisan tactical play which while the outside conservative activists world will never quite fully. Appreciate him history. Will judge him in a way as the most influential conservative of at least the early twentieth twenty-first century. Paul Kane is with the Washington Post hill. Kapoor's with Bloomberg news, gentlemen, thank you for helping us in our venture to understand Mitch McConnell, a little better, and we want to close with one last piece of video from our video archives. This is Mitch McConnell talking about the Senate in general. Well, I think the Senate has been the indispensable legislative body. Because that's the place where things are sorted out. Place where all rarely does the majority get things, exactly. The place where stability. Can occur. And. Most people obviously, don't take that. And in an era in which everybody wants instant gratification. If you're looking for instant, gratification or perfection. The Senate would not be good for you. WCS PFM Washington.

Delivered the opening keynote address at a climate change conference at the university of California in Irvine Amy wilentz university of California Irvine literary journalism, professor begins this event. I don't want to be self-congratulatory at getting a conference climate change. The greatest challenge humanity has ever faced. It wasn't really difficult to think of this conference. There are many conferences on the subject as well. There should be. They're happening right now. The only person who isn't talking and thinking about climate change right now is the president of the United States. It was very good, however to see and Markey and Alexandria, ocasio Cortez. Introduce a measure in congress beginning to sketch out the contours of a green new deal and our response finally to climate change at a federal level the form that put together. This gathering has also organizes Harris mentioned other conferences in the past on Justice and injustice in the courtroom on freedom of expression on the future of the truth and un-american identity, and the ideal of democracy and the twenty first century. These have been great supposed symposia where experts writers artists thinkers, political consultants, journalists filmmakers, screenwriters scholar legal minds. And so on get together to talk about the major issues confronting us. But to my mind all that is dwarfed by and overwhelmed by climate, change and its implications. As Naomi Klein said a few years ago, perhaps over us optimistically, given what has transpired since this changes everything. The threat of climate change of disaster and more on a global level changes everything it should. But does it these past few years have been the years when the general public began to realize that we face a catastrophe in global terms that the cats Astra Fay's human caused and that we must urgently begin to try to mitigate its worst effects, which we ought to have begun to do a half a century ago, or at least thirty years ago. The uninhabitable globe is an idea that is becoming commonplace. What can better illustrate the marginalization of most of the world's population? Then its inability to push back effectively against the continuation of all the sulphurous behaviors of capital and industry that are crushing humanity and the rest of the earth's biota and sending all of life to a rapid extinction. Let's not forget as we move forward this weekend and are entertained, and perhaps moved and enlightened and possibly excited by what we see and hear that. This is what is happening. Let's not forget elephants in polar bears and also snails and frogs also starfish and pangolins and Little Brown bats, and many many plants like for instance, milkweed, and it's symbiotic species, the my butterfly it reminds me a little, but resonant poem by the German Lutheran pastor Martin Neiman ah just to remind you I they came for the golden frog and I did not speak up for. I was not a golden frog. Then they came for the starfish, and I did not speak out for I was not a starfish, etc. I think you catch my drift, and then they came for us. Right. This past fall in the literary journalism program here, I taught two classes that I designed one called earth literature and the other a writing seminar called nature writing the central texts for both classes was American earth a collection of environmental writings edited by our keynote speaker tonight, Bill mckibben, thank you for this. Testament to environmentalism Bill. My hope was to bring climate change directly into focus with a humanities twist where is the human and all of this. Where are we not just who is at fault and what systems are in play? But what are the steps we can take intellectually personally physically and politically to begin to push back against our relentless democratized system as it continues and indeed insists upon promoting the mechanisms of earth destroying climate change. His what was shocking in these classes, I taught many of the students were not quite aware of the situation. They were blown away by the books we read including the sixth extinction by one of our participants this weekend, Elizabeth kolbert of the New Yorker and buy pieces like the fate of the earth by the late Jonathan Schell. They had very little idea of what on earth was happening. And those who did understand the full import of climate change had to do battle with friends and family who discredit the science of it simply and honestly don't wanna think about it. Who just want to go on to paraphrase Auden living there Dougie lives? But my students were intent on enlightening such friends and family, and I found that inspiring. They were moved by Jonathan shells philosophical meditation on extinctions, especially the extinction of humanity in which he wrote about extinction, not only as billions of personal deaths to be undergone. But also as the end of death since all we'll have died and more movingly even the end of birth. And thus the end of every single thing humans have created and passed down over the generations. We shall and other thinkers have called the common world. What is the common world? It's the intellectual cultural and scientific world, we share in all our different spheres and nations and cultures and it's not just life on earth. But also this beautiful intangible invention. The humanities fear that is threatened by climate change everything we've done as humankind or thought or remembered or written down. Down or told our children all fables in scientific theories, and mathematical formulae, all laws and traditions religions, all recipes, and tools, and poems, and ideas and paintings and installations and theater and performance art and folk dance and incantations and history itself. Oliva threatened and not just are nice houses and our cities and our energy resources and our food supply and our water supply. And in some cases, are cruel and ridiculous idea of dominance over the rest of the world, both human and non human also threatened, by the way. I'll conferences you may be glad to hear. So I would like to begin this threatened conference with a bit of reverence for what we're doing here this weekend, which is sharing precious common world. And also with some reverence for the lifeforms we've been sending to their doom. There's a lot of debate about what the recent World Wildlife fund's report on the process of animal extinctions means it came up last week. But the number a sixty percent drop in the population of vertebrate animals since nineteen seventy no matter how you slice the metrics of it is profoundly disturbing an automatic everyone here loosely if you think it is not human caused read this from the guardian story on the WWF report. The WWF finds that the vast and growing consumption of food and resources by the global human population is destroying the web of life billions of years in the making upon which humanities human society. Ultimately depends for clean, air, water and everything else. Of course, we're not just talking tonight and tomorrow about the horror of the extinctions cascade but about climate. Change overall with its superstorm polar vortex. Is it seasons of fire, and it's melting ice. And it's rising and morning. Let's think about the Pacific garbage patch and the Houston petroleum patch and the continuing human population, boom, which I'm sure you saw at airports and on the freeways on your way here. And the implications of all this and what we can do about it. Let's think about the implications of the actions of our politicians like President Trump who at the state of the union. The other day bragged to massive applause among our supposed- representatives about his regulations rollbacks. Let's think about all this as we move through this time together and imagine all we have to lose. If we don't get serious and take action the planet is ours to tend to and to care for this is a conference about thinking imagining. But it's also that Justice about ownership and the new directions our societies can take. Thank you..

Big Question: In Mueller investigation, what does the President know?
"But what exactly did Trump? No. When did he know it how involved was he we don't know yet? And his political future rests on the answers to those questions. Adam Davidson with what we know about the Muller investigation, so far Adam rights are called swamp chronicles, and you can find it at New Yorker dot com. I have with me today. Susan Glasser, and Jeff Toobin both staff writers for the New Yorker who've been covering this story in one way or another for years now almost seems like decades and Susan when you listen to Adam run us through the facts, where do you come down on the crucial question of the president of the United States is involvement. Here what is the likely outcome where that's concerned? You know, I was struck by a couple of things in in Adam's. Excellent report first of all. I think it's important to keep in mind, what did Vladimir Putin and Russia want from Donald Trump and want from the United States throughout this period. And because I think that starts to answer in a very specific way. Why there was a Russian intelligence operation. According to all the US intelligence agencies to manipulate an effect, the twenty sixteen election, not simply to cause chaos as some people have reported on Donald Trump's behalf. They wanted something very specific sanctions relief. Russia took over Crimea in two thousand fourteen invaded its neighbour, Ukraine. That's a conflict that continues today as a result of that. There are these fairly stringent sanctions on Russia. And I believe that was what they talked about it, the Trump Tower meeting, and I think the record is very likely to show that Trump was privately as well as publicly receptive to the idea that he was receiving some support from the Russians in an exchange was willing to consider lifting. These sanctions Susan there's been a lot of concern that William bar, the president's nominee for attorney general will not in the end even release Muller's findings or it might have to go. Through the attorney general, and he'll issue some kind of a version or summary of it. What do you expect us to actually get when the Muller investigation is over? What what will we receive? Will it be leaked in? Will. We find out everything we want to. It's not at all clear is the answer because we have not had a situation that exactly mirrors this one. There's no set law or template that applies to this. But I think most people believe that there's really no way to fully cover this up at this point. And that the the information one way or the other is going to come out, and I think that is a reasonable expectation. Jeff, you agree. Mostly I, you know. I've been burned so many times say well, Donald Trump can't possibly do acts does acts. So the idea that the Trump administration would use concepts like classified information executive privilege the existence of pending investigations to limit the disclosure in Muller's report is not out of the question to me. And even though it's true that even some Republicans as well as virtually all Democrats have said, they think ballers report should be made public. You know, more or less in its entirety. If Barr says, no, what are they going to do about it too lenient remedy minority? Latian that's put forth by Chuck Grassley. Who's not exactly a man of the left and Richard Blumenthal? Who's a democrat? Obviously that requires the final report. He submitted to congress and the public now that may not pass. But it gives you some sense of the inclination to at the very least leak it. Well, there could also be a supreme court fight over which would really put us in echoes of Watergate territory and arguably it was Nixon's. Fight over the release of the tapes. And when it finally got to the supreme court in involved all three branches of government. That was really, you know, the beginning of the end game for him. Now, the president's numbers all kinds of numbers have been eroding eroding. They're all his negatives are much higher than his his positives. His cO even his core basis is kind of gotten to thirty percent level. That's no way to win election and the election campaign has begun assuming he gets past these investigations in the house, assuming he gets past the mullahs report he'll be damaged in many ways. We're already seeing candidates come out on the democratic side. And we even hear about the possibility of a Republican challenging the president in his own party. What are Donald Trump's election prospects? Well, first of all, I think you're right to spotlight the possibility of Republican challenge, even if it's not successful recent history suggests this is the the the one fairly sure fire way in which incumbent presidents lose reelection is when they are weakened from within their own party. Obviously that was the story of Jimmy Carter in one thousand nine hundred eighty beaten up by Ted Kennedy, even though Kennedy didn't win and goes on to lose to Ronald Reagan, George H W Bush had the Pat Buchanan insurgency from within his party, it becomes a one term president or you could have an LBJ lake scenario in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight where the president chose not to run again while facing increasing discord and division from within his own party. I think both of those are real scenarios Jeff same question. Well, I I just, you know, given my credentials as someone who was disastrously totally wrong about the two thousand sixteen election. I wasn't alone. But I was. I think reports of Donald Trump's political death have been greatly exaggerated. I think his poll numbers while somewhat weaker. I think the real story is how little they've changed. Not how much they've changed a me strongly agree with that the day he took office after election election in which you'll recall he won his popularity was roughly forty percent it's been as high as forty five it's been down to forty thirty five. But I mean, it's really, you know, depending on which Paul it really hasn't changed that much. And that's you know, it was enough to win as for the Democrats. I mean, I suppose the good news is there's no one candidate who was his target who he can, you know, start Channing lock him or her up. The bad news is there's no candidate. So the idea that Donald Trump is going to. To lose to some miscellaneous person whose identity we have no idea about who it is. I just think, you know, most presidents get reelected. Is is the drama of the possibility of Muller getting fired by Trump? Now overdue think yes, I really think the odds of him being dismissed are essentially zero now release of the report that's a different story and we've discussed the complexity there, but Muller is going to be allowed to finish this investigation. I have no

This is fresh air. I'm Dave Davies in for Terry. Gross. Who's off this week? We're talking with Yahoo. News political correspondent John Ward about the nineteen eighty democratic presidential. Primary battle between president Jimmy Carter beset by the Iran hostage crisis and domestic turmoil and Senator Ted Kennedy who had the prestige of his family name, but also damage to his reputation from the nineteen sixty-nine Chappaquiddick incident. John Ward's book is called Camelot's end. So in nineteen seventy nine Ted Kennedy who has this terrible personal scandal. With just ten years before suddenly has a huge opportunity open to him. Should he take it? What did the poll say about how Democrats felt about replacing president Carter with Ted Kennedy as their candidate in nineteen eighty the polls showed that they wanna Kennedy, and I will say that according to Ted Kennedy? It was after the Malays speech that he really said I'm gonna I'm gonna lean towards running against Carter didn't officially make that decision until Labor Day, but this was June. And he and he tells the story of basically saying after that speech, this is not the kind of leadership that America needs. And I could provide that leadership, you know, I wouldn't blame the American people. And so by the summer and early fall of nineteen seventy nine polls show Kennedy beating Carter by two one in the primary, and and so we enter the fall of nineteen seventy nine with pretty much a widespread. Conventional wisdom expectation that take him, and he's going to be the democratic nominee Carter has the lowest approval rating of I think any president up until then any George Bush surpassed him in that in that measure. But but Carter, you know, is really the underdog going into the primary, right? His his ratings were lower than Richard Nixon. And Watergate, right? Yeah. Can you how how is that possible? Right. Right. So it looks like a Kennedy has a wide open path. And it all goes completely wrong for him. There was the Iranian revolution. And then they storm the US embassy and took fifty two American hostages which caused Americans to rally around the president as tends to happen in an international crisis. So that helped his numbers, and then the Carter people really understood how we're gonna is a primary campaign a lot better than candidates didn't they? They did. Although I would say I was really surprised by the fact that the hostage crisis helped Carter. I just I think the way that we remember history especially for somebody like me who hasn't lived through that period the waiver remember history or think about that time is that the hostage crisis hurt Carter. But it really did help him in the first couple of months after it happened because it rallied Americans to the presidency and it starved Kennedy of the ability to get into the news cycle because he couldn't Chris is Carter on it. That would be one way to get into the news cycle without hurting politically. And he couldn't really agree with Carter on how he's doing it because that's not gonna make new. So he was really stuck there on that. And then when it came to organizing Carter had just you know, he had one in seventy six because he understood the ways that the primaries. We're watching. And so you throw that in there you throw in the fact that Kennedy's sort of northeast elite celebrity does not really play well with farmers. It doesn't help that Chappaquiddick is still lurking in the background which the candidate people thought it'd been long enough. Maybe they decided to see themselves into thinking that because the opportunity was so great. I think that's quite likely. Right. So started losing delegates when everyone thought he would win them. As this campaign got underway. I mean often when politicians of the same party have their island or nomination before they start shooting. They will get together and talk is there a way we can work this out. Did these guys do this? What what did you hear from Jimmy Carter and from associates of both sides about how they felt about each other. I mean, they did talk about it. They had a conversation. Over the summer. I think just before Labor Day when when Kennedy made his decision, I think he info or maybe just after Labor Day. I think he informed Carter. There was never a huge amount of negotiation on this as you mentioned, the didn't really like each other very much a lot of that was really just style. I think Carter looked at Kennedy as somebody who had been given everything in life. And we've mentioned, you know, how hard he had to work to get everything he got. So I think he really resented that. And look down Kennedy for that. I think Kennedy you just saw Carter as sort of a backwoods nobody who was going to was going to be gone. You know in in a couple of months, and he really had contempt for him in as as having not a lot of accomplishments and not a lot of pedigree. So they were just from alien worlds. I think that played a world that were alien to each other. And I think that played a lot into why they couldn't understand each other. Right. There is this little incident where you report that Jimmy Carter. I mean, the president, and you know, the devout Christian is talking to some senators about how he views the campaign. What does he say? Yeah. He says I'm going to whip his ass which people today people, then didn't really think of Carter as a as a person who swore, but his political people push that out there because they wanted they want people to know that that Carter was not afraid of teddy Kennedy, and he wasn't he? One of the really great stories in the book is about an incident in nineteen seventy four where we're Carter just really showed Kennedy up at a speech in Georgia. And he had never really been intimidated by Kennedy, which is really interesting. All right. So summer of August of one thousand nine hundred eighty democratic convention in Madison Square Garden, a chance for the party to unite put all of this awful stuff behind them unite around Jimmy Carter, and it doesn't exactly work out that way Kennedy issues a statement saying it's clear I can't win he concedes. But he doesn't exactly do what Carter wants. He has a chance to speak Carter gave him a primetime speaking slot. What does he do with his his moment in the spotlight? He he gives sort of obligatory praise and support to Carter. But then he really gives a speech that's about his own campaign in about his own ideals. Kennedy really talks about maybe the more, you know, moral and idealistic aspects of his candidacy doesn't really talk a lot about policy, and he gives this speech, which is really no now is one of the great political speeches of the last several decades at least. Uses the phrase to sail against the wind, which is a famous phrase from that campaign. And by the end of the speech, the whole convention hall is really, you know, in his in the palm of his hand, even you know Carter's advisers can feel the amount of appeal the amount of motion the amount of momentum that the speech has created and there's like a thirty minute. What's known as a demonstration? I don't know if we really even have those anymore, but those were things that used to do where they would cheer and dance and applaud and so they did that for thirty minutes after that speech. And so after that speech there was a vote on these policy proposals. And the Carter operation just had to basically concede to Kennedy on two of the three the Kennedy magic at work in huge a huge embarrassment for Carter to agree to these proposals. Right. Speech was it was really the Kennedy magic again kind of appearing. Let's let's just to the end of the speech. This is Kennedy where he's kind of talking about his campaign and not to Yale. For me a few hours.
